WHAT SIR JULIUS YOGEL IS DOING.
The London correspondent of a Danedln paper contributes the following: — " Sir Julius is writing a novel. I heard so some six weeks or more ago ; bat when' k« was taxed jlth the faot he denied tbe ■oft Impe-ohment. He no ws admits he was guilty of a tarradiddle. The soo ac of tha story will not be laid In New Z_aland, as you might think, but In England about 200 yeara hence. Sir Julias pro* poies, ln faot, to follow In the footsteps of Bnlwer Lyttou, Walter Beiant, and oth.r.lesser lights, and give ua hia notions of the coming race, and .what the world will be like, m the year 2000 ad. Amongst other things I hear he proposes to paint women as admitted to the suffrage by then, and to portray form • " sweet girl Premier." There will be no prosecution for debt In the year 2000, and Oansda will havo annexed the United States.
Tbe big Atlas scheme remains m abeyance for tbe present. There Is no publio money lo London for suoh a ventnre. A firm of publishers have, however, promised to run the business when Sir Julias oan guarantee 3,000 £10 subscribers m New Zealand. The syndicate would doubtless have to pay down £15,000 or so beforehand aud guarantee the balanoe. Sir J alius has also an elaborate oable company scheme m nub ibua, from whloh. he hopes great things."
