Messrs Dillingham & Co. have re
ceived sojiie Unfitness Patent Fire
Extinguishers which arc now on ex
hibition at their store. These Firc
cxtinguishers are claimed to be the
best in the world and if they do
what they claim to be able to do
then that position must be awarded
them. "We clip the following from
The Ilurkucss Pneumatic Fire Ex
tinguisher is not a means of extin
guishing large conflagrations, but of
preventing them. It is iccll-Jcnown
fact that about ninety per cent of
the fires that occur arc discovered
in their incipient stages, and can be
extinguished without material loss if
suitable means arc employed. These
little engines arc always ready,
powerful and positive, and will
subdue and extinguish fires in their
inoipiency even when the fires arc of
an alarming extent, and at the same
time avoid damage that would
necessarily follow if water alone was
used. In cases tohere no water can
be had these machines are invaluable.
These machines cannot get out of
order by long standing unused or by
daily use, as no corrosive materials
are employed. The Harkness Im
proved Zapfle Compound used in
these Extinguishers when thrown
upon a burning mass, evolves an im
mense quantity of hydrochloric acid
and ammoniacal gases in which fire
cannot exist, while the carbonic
acid gas claimed for chemical ma
chines is generated in the extin
guisher, and is lost in its transit to
the fire and is of no avail as an
Messrs Dillingham & Co, propose
to test these Fire Extinguishers and
also their Magneso-Calcite fire-proof
safes at an early date. As they
have stood the most severe tests in
the States it is probably they will do
so here and our readers -will then
have an opportunity of judging
their value in practical work.

"Vc have already said in these
columns (writes Vanity Fair) that
the only Europeans who ever have
definite knowledge of the future
course of political events arc the
members of secret societies. Long
before Skobeloff spoke at Palis;
long before the Cologne Gazette
published the article which has sent
the English press into a frenzy of
prophecy and large capitals, we pre
dicted the approach of trouble
between Germany and Russia. "While
London journals, cleverly inspired
by the revolutionary pressmen, were
informing us that Krapotkin was
enjoying idyllic leisure by the
Mediterranean shore, we said that
Krapotkin was Hitting from town'to
town like the storm bird that he is.
The prince has now been captured,
and his papers prove that our infor
mation was right, and that the re
volutionists arc in full activity.' They
have not at present much power,
but thcjT have a very great deal of
useful information, and there is not
a man of them who is not awaiting
the sound of the gun.
These secret rulers never deal in
conjecture ; their organisation is so
perfect that they see clearly where
the persons described as statesmen
only grope blindly. From the con
vict towns on the White Sea to
Odessa, from Tobolsk to Dresden
and Paris, their unseen machinery
extends. While the police at St.
Petersburg are blundering hither and
thither; while Western statesmen
are sitting in dignified iguorance,
the revolutionist leaders are receiv
ing accurate news from cities and
towns and villages. Ordinary poli
ticians rely on organs of public
opinion, forgetting that the men who
pretend to represent public opinion
have no means of learning the truth.
But the secret society men make no
such mistakes ; their agents, espe
cially in Russia, live with the people,
work with them, suffer with them,
and gauge their thought rightly. At
this present moment there are about
8000 well born and well educated
men and women in Russia who are
working in the factories, toiling in
the fields, plying in ferry boats be
tween obscure villages on the banks
of the obscure streams ; setting up
the type of journals, drinking with
the lower classes iu vile vodka shops,
and sleeping in the dens where the
poorer subjects of Holy Russia pig
together. A secret system of cor
respondenec brings all these threads
of propagandism to one centre ; and
thus the heads of committees in
Switzerland or London know every
passing tremor that agitates the
People in England ask, " Why
should there bo war between Ger
many and Russia?". The revolu
tionist answers, "I cannot stop to
discuss wlrys and wherefores; I only
know that war cannot be avoided. I
only know that the people of Russia
want war with Germany, and that
they will have Avar, whether official
'Russia' likes or not." Then the
common sense rcasoncr comes in,
and remarks with proper gravity,
"Russia is just recovering from a'u
exhausting war; her finances are
disordered; her population suffer

here.-nnd there from starvation.
She cannot enter on a contest with a
first rate power' The man of fact
once more makes answer, "I can
show no reason for the warlike
feeling that would satisfy the maker
of logic books ; I may, however, say
in passing that, if nations reasoned,
there is not a leading statesman in
in Euiopc whose neck would be safe.
The Russian people in the present
case arc not moved by reason at all,
but only by emotion." What has
raised the present feeling in Russia
we do not know ; we only know that
a blind, violent hatied of Germany
has become the ruling passion in
Russian society of all grades, and
that Skobeloff spoke with the voice
of a national majority when he de
clared that the Slav must crush the
Teuton. Reason and foresight are
put aside, and eager ferocity has
taken their place. When Skobeloff
made his tour, the official classes
were in doubt as to what steps they
should take. It was after the young
general was attacked by "contusion
of the heart" that the men of the
sections and the Cabinet saw where
to go. A curious position has now
arisen. The figure heads of the
departments and the leaders of the
revolution are both pushing towards
one end. Terrorism has ceased for
a time because the, acute man who
handles the vast and murderous Rus
sian caucus thinks proper to leave the
ruling classes alone. The more the
men who wield the power and finance
of Russia choose to prepare for war
the more the revolutionists encour
age them, so that the national ten
dency is not being stayed by the
slightest drag. If a Russian of the
advanced school hears war men
tioned, he only says, " The sooner
the better for us." The ruler hopes
for a prolonged lease of power: the
conspirator hope to get rid of the
Germans, aud to cause a regenera
tive anarclry. Thus it is that war
is impending. The newspaper man
in a foreign capital goes about gad
ding with junior diplomatists and
with other newspaper men ; then he
telegraphs home and informs us that
"the clouds have passed," and then
the writer of leading articles tells us
in slipshod English the glad tidings
of great joy. Neither the corres
pondent nor the scribbling paragraph-monger
knows anything about
the matter. They guess before the
event and. prophesy after the event,
while the stirrings and adva'uees of
national fueling are totally darkened
No one can say with an approach
to nearness at what time the war will
break out,4 but it is rapidly coming,
and any morning may bring news of
the final arid momentous step The
Russians fully expect to be defeated
heavily at first, but they are strangely
confident. When reminded of the
way in which the Prussian hosts
moved upon Paris they smile. They
say, "The cases are altogether differ
ent. You crush Paris and you
paralyse the central ganglion of
France. Rut Russia is, as it were,
a creature .of another organisation.
Crush one ganglion and there are
still a hundred national nervecentres
unharmed." The zoological simile
is perfectly apt and true, and no one
knows, better than Prince Bismarck
what a task Germany has before her.
But at any rate it is to be feared
that nothing can now avert the cata
strophe, and we can only await the
events which are marching towards
us so qnickly.
