Financial disaster, starvation and

Germany and other European
Nations says, the San Francisco
Chronicle if war should come with
tlir Illlilpil Rtntpc
: The .,rpea "b f u,e
Carnegie Steel Corapanv, in an in-
( terview which was telegraphed to
this country from London, said: "It
i.is nonsense to suppose that Ger
! many or any other European power
I is scheming to get into trouble
i with the United States in the west
lern hemisphere." This opinion is
based on the assumed impossibility
of Europe financing such a war as
I an armed conflict with the United
States would involve. Colonel
1 Huusiker by no means stands alone
1 in the expression of this view. In
'deed, there are some very distin
guished European publicists who
1 have reached the conclusion that a
general war involving the great
, nations of Europe would produce
.something like universal bank
j But the fear of financial disaster
, is not the only one that influences
the thoughts of statesmen and writ
1 ers in Europe. There is another
j consideration, infinitely more ap
palling than the dread of bank
ruptcy, an-1 that is the apprehen
sion thaf a great conflict would
bring starvation to the congested
populations of the manufacturing
nations of the Old World. At a
recent meeting of the London
Trades- Council a resolution was
adopted which had for .its purpose
the awakening of public opinion to
the danger that confronts England
in case of a collision. In that event,
the council declared, famine prices
would at once ensue, and a condi
tion of affairs would be created which
would tie the hands of any govern
ment. The reasons assigned for
this belief are:
1. The changed industrial condi
tions of 'the present day and the
vast poverty-stricken masses con
gested in our great cities.
2. There are nearly 7,000,000
people to-day living (in the United
Kingdom) in poverty so dire that
they can hardly eke out a bare sub
sistence even at present prices.
They will not be able to pay famine
3. The disruption of trade which
must accompany a European war
will throw a further very large
number how large cannot be fore
seen out of work. Wageless,
they will not be able to purchase
Commenting on these resolutions,
a writer in the Nineteenth Century
for January declares that the fears
expressed are well grounded, and
he asserts that bloody riots and a
popular discontent of such magni
tude would follow a great war that
the Government would be driven
to make peace on any terms.
The conditions in Germany, or,
in fact, any of the European indus
trial countries, are very little better
than those described in the London
Trade Council's resolutions as
existing in England. In all of
them vast numbers of people are
hoveriugon the limitsof subsistence,
and a war would mean starvation
for many. The wise men of the
nations referred to are aware of
these facts and do not wish war.
It may even be assumed that they
dread contemplating anything of the
kind, and that the rulers, even the
Emperor of Germany, share their
views and fears. Hut unfortunate
ly, wars are sometimes precipitated
in the face of the conviction 6f
inevitable disaster, and it is a re
grettable fact that such results are
often contributed to by the people
who are first to suffer when the
pinch comes. There has been more
than one so-called popular war in
the past, and it may easily happen
that another may occur and set
Europe aflame. Because this is
possible it is not wise to rest too
securely on the assumption that
there will be no war because sen
sible men know that disaster will
follow. We must always reckon
with the fact that impulse, folly and
carelessness have as much to do in
shaping the destinies of the world
as prevision, care aud reason.

The white elephant has become
a phrase for an expensive and use
less anomaly, says a writer in the
Times of India. It appears that
eveh his name is an anomaly. The
white elephant, like the virtue of
many people, is far from being
white. He is merely lighter than
his brother; his skin, instead of
being blackish gray, is of a light,
or more often a reddish, gray. A
"dirty brick color" is perhaps the
best description. The famous she
elephant Sarit, at the j"ardin des
Plantcs, who was presented three
years ago by M. Doumer, when
Governor-General of Indo-China,
which attracted so much attention
on the slopes of the Trocadero at
the great Exposition, is a dark
brick color, covered 'with little
rosy spots, hardly visible. These
reddish spots, which are a frequent
feature, are due to mere abrasion,
subsequently cicatrized. It was
the rosy-spotted variety of the
white elephant which used to be
most prized in Ceylon, where no
white elephants are now found.
The white elephant Kedah, lately
on exhibition in America, was
captured in Sumatra, and was of a
light delicate gray, passing to a
light rose color at the end of the
trunk and around the ears, with
nails of a beautiful creamy white.
By the way, a frequent but xnot
invariable sign of the white eleph
ant is the presence of five instead of
four nails on each of the hind feet.
An invariable characteristic is
light-colored eyes, generally red
dish. yellow. A light-colored eleph
ant, with actually light blue eyes,
was seen at Mysore in 1870 by Mr.
Sanderson, as recorded in his
"Thirteen Years Among the Wild
Beasts of India." From the time
of the first white elephant who
visited Europe in modern times'(ac
cording to Pere Armandi, author
of "The Military History of Eleph
ants, this was the one exhibited at
Amsterdam in 1633) the Burmese
Siamese qualifying adjective has
been persistently mistranslated. It
means no more than ' lighten,"
and the "light," the "red" or the
"albino" elephant would be a truer
rendering. Much information has
lately been collected about the
white elephant by various writers,
among whom may be mentioned
Young in his "Kingdom of the
Yellow Robe"; a writer with sin
gular name of Pyinya, who con
tributes "The Decadent White Ele
phant" to a recent Asiatic Quarter
ly Review, and M. Henri de Va
rigny, who has a paragraph on "La
Grandeur et la Decadence del' Ele
phant Blanc." Hongkong Press.
Jupiter and Its Itcd.
In one of his interesting notes in
Nature, W. F. Denning gives an
abstract of the history of the famous
red spot of Jupiter He tells us
that acceleration of the movement
apparent in this spot has been no
ticed for some time past. During
last summer the movement was es
pecially intensified. The rotation
period for twenty-three years of the
spot had shown an increasing re
tardation, the period lengthening
from 9 h. 55 rain. 34 sec. to nearly
9 h. 55 min. 42 sec. Then, in
1891, it declined by one second,
and in the present year its period is
9 h. 55 min. 39 sec. What is
highly interesting to astronomers is
the concurrent development of a
big marking, irregular iu shape
and of a dusky hue in the same
area ol the planet. Mr. Denning
suggests that this second marking
may have exerted an influence on
the rate of motion of the red spot,
which, in the present year, ap
peared to be environed by the new
spot. The recounting of these aud
other details shows us the difficul
ties which attend the observation
of a planet like Jupiter. We are
also taught thereby the need for the
accumulation of accurate details,
from the mass of which the astron
omy of the future may be enabled
to draw trustworthy conclusions
concerning the history of the orb.
