THE CONCERT OF EUROPE
AmiKOSK MERCK KECAHDH IT A
Concentration the Ititlo In All
TMiiica 111 Thnt I. alter Dnya
or XIX. Century.
Ambrose Bierce, in hie "Prattle"
in the San Francisco Examinor,
says a good word for the bravo
Turks and thon discusses the Eu
ropen concert thus:
In the concert of Europe we
see tho most significant, the grand
est and most beneficent manifesta
tion of that great modern move
ment that is transforming the
world the tendenoy to aggrega
tion of interests. Denounce it how
wo will, fight it as wo may, we aro
powerless to stay its advance in
any department of human activity,
Booial, industrial, commercial, mi
litary, political. It is the domin
ant phenomenon of our time.
Labor combines into "unions,"
capital into "trusts,", and each ag
gregation is powerful in every
thing except in combatting its
own methods in the other. The
newspaper denounces the one or
the other and joins a syndicate of
newspapers. "Department stories"
spring up all over the land, draw
the fire of the demagogue and aro
impotently condemned in the plat
form of tho political trust that he
adorns. Our great hotels the
Waldorf would houBO the popula
tion of Albany are examples of
the same centripetal law, and
offices move to the center into
buildings overlooking tho church
spires. Small farms are disap
pearing; railways absorb other
railways and by pooling interests
with those unabBorbed evoke dead
letter legislation and vain "deci
sions." Cities swallow and digost
their suburbs. There are suoh
things as guilds of authors, tramps
devastate in organized, bodies, and
this decade has seen a congress of
In the -larger politics we observe
the same tendenoy to aggregation;
everywhere tho unit of control is
enlarging. In tho Western
Hemisphero wo have had a pan
American Congress have seen tho
genesis of the Dominion of Oana
a and havo now the Greater Be
publio of Central America. The
United States have set up, and
must henceforth maintain, what is
virtually a protectorate of Ame
rican republics a polioy which
commits us to their defense in
every dispute with a European
power, gives us a liying interest
in all' their affairs and makes
overy foot of South America in
some.sonse United States territo
ry. Beyond the Atlantic it is the
same. The entire continent of
Africa is being parted among a
few European nations alroady
swollen to enormous growth by
vast acoretions of colonial do
minion. And all over tho world
colonial federation is in tho air.
In Europe itself States are drawn
together into Kingdoms, King
doms into Empires. United Italy
and United Germany are con
spicuous and significant examples,
Whether in the Other World a
movement is afoot to establish
Greater Heaven by annexing Hell
neither the Celestial Ambassadors
have informed us from the pulpit,
nor the Infernal from the tribune
Multiplication of international
"conventions" and "treaties" is
one of tho most striking of con
temporary politically phenomena.
There aro a minor species of in
ternational federation, attesting
and perpetuating a community of
interest which statesmen: no long
er venture to ignore. By some
hopeful spirits they aro regarded
as preliminary committee-work of
Tennyson's "Parliament of Man,"
International arbitration is a blind
step in tbo same dirootion, profit
able chiefly as evidence of tho
general trend. Tho set of the
curronts of human interests is
from all points of tho political
compass toward fowor and fewer
nuclei of control. We may dis-

liko tho diiection may olamor
against the current that soems to
be affecting a particular interest,
but we can neither stay nor turn
it. We may utter (from the poc
ket) ,. our disrelish of "trust,"
"combine" and "monopoly;" they
are phases of tho movement and
we shall shriek in vain.
In tho concert of Europe we
have one of the movement's most
interesting, significant and ap
parently beneficent results. It
has brought back no Asiatic
"Christians" from Paradise to
America. It could not prevent a
rush of Grecian "patriots" from
Athens to tho grave. But it has
performed the inestimable service
of controlling and regulating tho
ambitions of rulers and the pas
sions of peoples. It has shown
that tho giant's strength of a
modern military nation is not in
compatible with uu honoat dis
inclination to use it like a giant
that the tremendous armaments of
our day have another purpose
than destruction of human life.
By discouraging among individu
al nations the cut-tbioat competi
tion of privato war, the great mili
tary trust having its main office in
Constantinople has proved its
right to enrollment among the
beneficent agencies that Provi
dence employs in the government
of tho world. In defying its will
Greece is being taught a lesson
that will be profitable exceeding
ly to pupil and spectator. It
would be a blessing to civilization
if the Six Powors, assisted in
Western affairs by ourselves,
would instate themselves, as a
World's Judiciary, to prevent pas
sionate peoples and irresponsible
rulers from profiting by wanton
infractions of the peace.
UPLOADS OF IRISH LASSIE.
Over Seven Hundred Colleens In On
From Ireland the tide of immi
gration. hajB again sot" toward our
shores, says a Mayday message-
from sievr xork. for the last few
years it was sluggish. This coun
try received fewer immigrants by
10,000 in 1895 and 1896 than it
should have under normal condi
tions. The stories of tho blight of
industry and scarcity of money
whioh reached Ireland kept her
Eeople at homo, bat now the tide
On Ellis island Thursday there
passed through the Gate of Free
dom, as the exit of the little pick
eted lane is called, 723 Irish las
sies the best-looking, the best
clothed, the neatest and the most
cheerful immigrants this country
has Been in years. They ranged
in age from 18 to 25, and, without
exception, passed every require
ment ob to morality and cleanli
ness and satisfied the Commis
sioners that there was no danger
of their becoming charges on the
publio purse for future support.
Sixty-five per cent of the entire
number were what is known as
"prepaid" passengers. Their tick
ets had been sent them from this
side. Two hundred and fifty of
tbem will go into domestic servioo
in the metropolitan district. Near
ly throe hundred go to Boston.
The balanco is soheduled for des
tinations in the Middle and West
During this month there will
come more than 1000 other girls
from Irish villages. The cause of
this invasion is a demand for Irish
girls for housomaids. Labor em
ployment bureaus can plaoe more
than 2000 girls of proper charac
ter and fitness.

THE WORLD'S SHIPPING
ONK HALF OF IT IS UNDER
THIS BRITISH VLMI.
Mo Ue Iiialllnllnic a Cnmpnrlsou
Between llrllltli Shipping nud.
Thnt or Any Other Nation.
Truly, it is "Athanasius contra
i I, .. .i . . .-iK:fW
iuuuuum' iu mo manor oi -snipping,
and the l-'ritieh empire is
the Athanasius. Of all the mer
chant marino of the world, in
vessels of 100 tons or more, about
one-half is under the "meteor flog."
The totals are 29,880 vessels and
25,614,089 tons, of whioh ll,880,or
more than one-third of the vossols,
and 13,359,020, or more than one
half of the tonnage, are British.
Thero is no use, therefore, in in
stituting a comparison betweon
British shipping and thnt of any
other nation. The first plaoo is so
indisputably English that all com
petition must be for tho Becond
and lower places.
In the totals of all kinds of ves
sels tho second placo is at presont
easily held by the United States.
This country has 3215 vessels, of
2.234,725 tons. The nearest com
petitors are Norway, with 2902
vessels' of J,669,468 tons; and Ger
many, with 1657, of 1,943,751.
Franco comos next, with 1157, of
1,129,575. Italy, Russia, Swedon
and Turkey have each moro than
1000 vessels, indeed Sweden has
more than Franco, but nono of
them has nearly 1,000,000 ton
nage. Further analysis of tho figures
gives Borne interesting results. In
the class of wooden and composite
steamers the United States greatly
leads all, with 222, of 158,000 tons,
against 180 of 41,384 tons in Jap
an, tho nearest rival. Indeed in
tonnago of this class the Unitod
States outstrips 'oven the British
empire, the latter having 402 ves
sels, but of only 108,036 tons. Of
iron steamers we havo 249, of
390,794 tons, and are surpassed by
France and Germany in both num
bers and tonnage, and by Norway,
Sweden andSpain in the former but
not in tho latter respect. Of steel
steamers we have 209, of 455,833
tons, and are surpassed in both
respects only by Germany, Nor
way having more vessels but less
tonnage. Tho totals of all steam
craft in the United States are,
thon, 680 vessels of 1,005,459 tons.
We are surpassed only by Gor
many, with 984 vessels of 1,436,
539 tons, and are approached only
by Norway in number of vessels,
638, and by Franco in tonnage,
930,785. All the rest are far be
hind. In sailing craft of wood and
composite structure tho United
States leads tho world, surpassing
even tho British empire. Tho fig
ures aro: United States, 2511 ves
sels of 1,193,379 tons; British em
pire (colonies included), 2314, of
708,550 tons; Norway, 2156, of 1,
042,084 tons, and tho rcBt no
where. In iron sailing craft our
sixteen, of 16,863 tons, aro so far
behind Germany's 185, of 199,455
tons, as to be quite out of reckon
ing. We aro also surpassed in
both numbers and sizo by France,
Norway, Denmark and Hol
land, and by Argentina and
Italy in numbers, anjust equaled
by Swoden in numbors. Our
eight steel sailing vessels of 19,
024 tons, are vastly distanced by
Gormany's fleet, surpassed in
numbors and tonnago by tho (loots
of Holland, Franco, Italy and
Norway, and in numbors by thoBo
of Argontiua and Doumark. In
tbo grand total of all kinds of
Bailing craft the United Statos
loads all tho world, excepting the
British empire, but it is olosoly
pressed by Norway, tho figures
being: United States, 2535 ves
sels of 1,229,260 tons, and Norway,
2204 of 1,142,984 tons. All tho
rest ore comparatively distanced.
