THURSDAY, MARCH 18, 188G.
The unspeakable Tmk may not
yet bo on the. point of taking his
abrupt (lepaitmc from Euiopc, "bag
ami baggage," as jIr. Gladstone put
it. A scheme for his defence is
said to have been the product of the
fertile mind of Sir W. "White, the
English Ambassador at Constantino
ple, under Lord Salisbury's Govern
ment. Jt looks as if it had been
suggested by the British Imperial
Federation movement. The idea is
to build up three stiong and semi
dependent States around the small
poil ion of tenitory including Con
stantinople, which is left to be
directly governed by tho Sultan in
Km ope. These three States arc to
be Greece, Servia and Bulgaria.
The Sultan, on his pait, is to give
to Greece Kpirus and part of Mace
donia, to Servia all that portion of
old Servia which still remains under
his contiol, and to Bulgaria Eastern
lloumclia. In return for the gift of
territory, the rulers of the three
States arc to be under the nominal
suzerainty of the Sultan, and to pay
a. certain amount of tribute, but,
above all, to hold their armies at the
command of the Sultan for defen
sive purposes. It is calculated that
these tlncc States could easily throw
into the Held a combined army of
400,000 men. They could, with the
assistance of Asiatic forces of the
Sultan at their back, hold the Bal
kans against Russia forever. The
l'rinco of Bulgaria has signed this
ngi cement, and has carried out the
conditions. It is no wonder that
Russia is enraged and threatens to
deprive him of his tin one. Russia's
contention that l'rincc Alexander
lias no right to pledge the army of
Bulgaria which was freed by Russia
is weak. The l'rincc has won the
heart of United Bulgaria by leading
the people through a triumphant
htruggle for ficedom and unity in
the face of the opposition of Bussia,
and they will accept his leadership
in this matter also. Montreal
A method of procuring gas for
lighting purposes fiom fish oil has
been invented at the naval arsenal
at Tokio. The gas is said to pro
duce a brighter light at a cheaper
cost that gas from coal. It is pro
posed to supercede coal gas by this
new process from fish oil.

ad Tho premiums on a Tontine po
licy are the same as on tho Ordinary

able in the event ot dsnlh, tho holder of
tho Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of tho lescrvo and tho accu
