TUESDAY, JAN. 20, 1897.
According to varioiiB
o' t'arvi're, writing in both Ame
rican and transatlantic papers, it
will not bo surprising if Berlin
should bo the focus of unusual
intoiest this year. Among tho
discontented people of Germany
ouo correspondent places soino of
tbo wealthy uioiohants, and bo
binlh that something like rovolu- i
tion m.iy bo a nearer eventuality j
iu tho oinpiro than at least by
outsiders is generally supposed.
One iustuuco of tho boldness of
diHiiH'eoliou is tho oaso of a mem- i
bor of tho imperial legislature
who, in a paper edited by him,
'expressed tho dosiro to soo tbo
empire go to smash. Yet although
a hue nud cry of treason is raised
about his cars, no attorn pt is raiulo
to placo him undor legal lestraint.
His immunity thus far may, how
ovor, bo regarded as a bigu more
hopeful than othorwiso. It may
mean that tho imperial party is
abandoning repressive measures
njjaiust free speech, adopting tho
plan instead of treating it as a
safety valvo to permit tho escape,
innocuously, of overheated pop
ular feeling. This plan would bo
at tho same timo of gn-il nseful
upis in enabling the go eminent
to seo exactly what arothe popular
grievances, so that all such as are
just aud iea6ouable may bo ro
dressed by well-considored mea
sures iu a spirit of liberality. ,
From all tho indications within
and without, it would scorn that
both concession and conciliation
will have to bo brought into play
by tho imperial party for tho
preservation of internal tran
quillity. Tho old-fashioned Eu
ropean mode of composing in
ternal" difficulties 5b by engaging
in external trouble. Hut tho
diversion of a foreign war, if she
wtm tho provoker of it, would bo
an awful risk for Germany to as
sume undor oxisting circum
stances. Italy is liablo at any
time to kick over tho traces of tho
Triple, Alliance. Warnings ring
in tho German press that tho
French army is so many
thousands stronger on a war
f)oting than tbo German.
It is to be noted, besides,
that Franoo is in a jauntier mood,
as to hor status in tho European
concert, since the recent visit of
the Cznr of Russia to Paris.
Although tho best sentiment and
the most influential of Franco is
for peace, tho spirit of revenge for
Sedan is only latent and might
easily bo aroused to activity. Tho
levelatious of a secret treaty that
bad existed for mauy years bo
twoon Germany and Russia
p. ja facio inconsistent with tho
Triplo Alliauco have brought
Austria as woll as Italy into an
attitude of suspicion against Gor
inany. Undor all tho circumstances,
therefore, it is likely that Emperor'
William will doom it tbo hotter
part for both tho empire to which
lit, is religiously dovoted and
biuibolf that ho should grapple
with domestic problems and settlo
thorn in a manner ogreeablo to
the majority of hiB subjects, than
thot he should try to postpone tho
inevitable day of onlargod popular
liboTtios. by plunging tho nation
iijiu foreign strife. Tho chances
aro not slight, for tho reasons
already skotohed, that if Germany
ww tho aggressor in precipitating
the long-dreaded European war,
sho would find herself in not
splendid" but awful isolation
in the stupendous fray. And, if tho
empire como through it intact
at all or ovon gloriously trium
phant, what gain of territory or
prestige, or prizo of iudemuity tho
richest that could booxtortod from
vanquished foes, would bo ade
quate compensation for tho blood
and troasuro poured out and tho
conditions of misory superim
posed upon millions of bor pooplo
which would mako them to bo
pitied far into the twontiotb cen
tury ? Withal the domestio pro
blems would spring up multiplied
in number and aggravated iu form
with the return of poaco.
Eraporor William has iu mani-
fold enterprises of a paternal na
turo proved that nothing is dearer
to his heart tbau tho wolfaro of
bis subjects. Whon conservative
and law-abiding onos aro at vari
ance with bis ideas, it is upon
methods of acbioving tbo greatest
good of tbo greatest number. Tho
Emporor has beou wilful, especial
ly in tho earlier days of bis reign,
but it cannot bo said that either
in homo or foreign affairs be is
unbending to eithor expediency
or reason. "When revolution comes
in Germany, therefore, it is safo
to say that its coming will bavo
been peaceful and not bavo beon
obstructed by Emporor William
