THE FRENCH AND GERMAN FORCES.
Both in her land nnd her sen
forces Fiance has a peace effective
numerically superior to that of Ger
many. The difference Is greatest in
the navy, and there also it could not
be made up, should a war occur at
any timo beforo 1890; yet, though
it may seem a contradiction, in tho
navy this French numerical superi
ority is the least important. Go.t-
many has no colony woith attacking,
nnd her conipaiativcly short coast
lino at home, where accessible at
all, is well provided with defense?,
while France has a long lino to
uuard. Abovo nil, the ticnicn-
dous vigor with which war on land
would be waged between these
Powers would make it the decisive
element; just as in 1870, when the
French superiority was perhaps
even more marked than to-day, it
yet availed nothing. For this rea
son it is not important to compaic
the naval forces of tho two coun
The army peace establishment of
France is the larger, but in popula
tion and potential arms-bearing re
sources Germany has the advantage.
France has the greater debt and
heavier taxes to sustain, but from
these taxes the Government receives
tho ampler appropriations each
year for military and naval pur
poses. Tho peace effective of the
French army, according to last
year's budget, is 523,283, comprising
31,110 ofllcers nnd 492,143 enlisted
men. Major Huberding of the Ger
man War Ministry, in reporting
recently in the special committee of
tho Reichstag on the Army bill, es
timated the French peace foico of
enlisted men at only 471,000, possi
bly subtracting cither the gendar
merie, numbering 25,825, or else
the military schools and bureau
troops, which, combined, amount to
21,000. The peace footing of the
German Empire comprises 18,143
ofllcers and 427,274 men, making
an aggregate of 445,417. Thus jn
the peaco effective tho advantage is
clearly on the side of the French.
News of a late date, however, an
nounces that 08,200 infantry and
4,800 riflemen, making a total of
73,000 men, of tho German re
serves, have been summoned o
drill during the present week, so
that for tho next fortnight tho ef
fective force with the colors will be
about as great on the German side.
Turning to the war footing, the
first addition of France would be
what is called the territorial army,
which comprises an aggregate of
C 16,000 olllccrs and men. Other
additions might carry the total ef
fective under the first call up to
1,000,000 men, including all arms
and staff service. The German mo
bilization for a war footing, without
the Landstrum and special organi
zations, but including garrison and
field reserves, would comprise 35,
427 ohlcers and 1, 450,077 men,
without about 27,000 more for the
medical and collateral forcc3. Thus
we see again how close tho two mo
bilizations would como in numerical
strength. When the landstrum is
called out on the one side and its
equivalent on the other, tho Germans
have an ultimate superiority in num
bers, although tho French nominally
counterpoise the advantage of popu
lation by making a larger ratio of their
people liable to a military service.
Still, so far as numbers is concern
ed, the French would be much bet
ter off at the outset than in 1870.
Were it possiblo for them, by a
sudden dash, to invade Alsace and
Lorraine, and ncutcralize the advan
tage in population which their pos
session gives to the Germans, a new
face might.be put upon the struggle.
The German fortifications, military
skill, and watchfulness, however,
and the probability that if there is a
war this year it wjll be duo to Ger
many's taking the initiative, render
this contingency unlikely to occur.
The difference between tho respec
tive organizations of tho two forces
may bo briefly indicated by saying
that France is a little tho stronger
in infantry, about in proportion to
the general strength of her peace
organization. She is decidedly the
stronger in artillery, and especially
in the number cf her field guns.
Major Huberding declared to the
lieichstag that the French batteries
now contain 452 mounted pieces
more than tho German, the latter
having 1,404 to the 1,850 of Franco.
On the other hand, the Germans are
very much stronger than tho French
in cavalry, having fully seventy
more squadrons and about one-third
more total cavalry forces. One of
tho highest cavalry authorities in
France declares that the disparity
in this respect at tho outset would
bo much greater, since a largo part
of the French mounted foico is ab
sent in Africa, making the German
available force nearly double that
of tho French. In a w eck or ten
days, however, tho absent cavalry
could be recalled, and then tho re
spective strength in this arm would
bo un aggregate of about G 1,000
olllccrs and men for the Germans
against 48,000 for tho French. N.
THE CZAR IN PARIS.
Paris, Peb. 5. It has just trans
pired that tho Czar has been visiting
Paris. Ho camo hero in tho last
week of December and Btaycd for
several days j somo say weeks. There
is no doubt of it. His coming was
heralded by tho arrival of Grand
buko Nicholas". This nobleman, did
not, ns usual, go to a hotel. On
tho contrary, lie entered a houso on
the Hue Boetic, a most retired and
inconspicuous place. Although ho
was only to stay five weeks, hu hired
also tho houses adjoining on both
sides and cleared everyone out of
them. Then the ' Czar came. Ho
traveled in the garb of a well-to-do
Russian merchant and was not re
cognized on the journey. He had
three companions. One was his
most trusted aide-de-camp, who was
also carefully disguised. Another
was a Russian soldier, who had no
idea of tho Czar's identity. Tho
third was a large Russian mastiff or
bloodhound. Tho object of his coin
ing hero was to have a personal in
terview with M. Urcvy about Bul
garia and tho gcncial situation in
Euiopc. What the result of their
conference was, is, of course, un
known. Rumor at lite Klysco has
it, however, that the Czar agreed, in
case of a Franco-Gcrmnn war, to re
main neutral only so long as France
was getting the better of it. If
Germany began a victorious march
toward Palis again, nil the military
force of Russia would come swoop
ing down on tho German frontier.
How was the Czar's presence dis
covered? Two English olllccrs, who
had been at St. Petersburg and who
live opposite tho houso he lived in
here, lccognized him. They set
watch upon him and their suspicions
finally were confirmed. Adolf
Houssaye, in Chicago Tribune.
New York, Feb. 28th. John
Sherman, while in this city the
other da)', was not at all backward
in having it distinctly understood
that ho is in the field ns tie Repub
lican candldato for tho next Presi
dency, and that he is disposed to
employ all honorable means for at
taining the object of his ambition.
He has quite a voluminous corres
pondence with tho Republicnn load
ers here. Tho feeling at the Union
League and Union Republican
Clubs is undoubtedly growing in his
favor, owing, perhaps, to the ubi
quity of his biother, General W. T.
Sherman, whose residence in this
city is of immense advantage to tho
Senator. General W. T. Sherman
atthis moment is, probably, tho
most popular man in the city. Ho
is invited everywhere, and he rarely
declines an invitation, except for
cause. He rarely talks politics, but
notwithstanding that, ho is a posi
tive political influence.
