If fewt i Peace nnd good will are not ended on
1$ Hf earth becausu the Senate of the United

Wmk the slightest extent by tho failure of this

If' B' ' burial of a project which wan dangerous to
W ' - American interests until It was shorn of lta

$Br The vote of Wednesday, therefore. Is not

H v J ! H a wi.ev and many of his associates voted
H ,j l on Wednesday for tho treaty. It was "a

Hi X and It would make no difference, anyway.

Hjc f other patriotic and generally sensible Sen

.t ,'' Business.
f S j'1 It was a most interesting meeting of the
B", !' ? Wholesale Merchants' Association of New
ft f-Bi York that was held on Tuesday. Among
SiM? those present at it wero representatives of
' C, H ' a good number of the leading mercantile
l1 "'BL l flrniy and companies in the city. It was
vBi ,K''(' for tuo PurP08e ' devising means for

B ', teresls. A numlier of practical suggestions

HM ;)' t each year; and a conditional promise that
HJ' t"Bf this concession would be granted was
H' i'll made in behalf of the Trunk Lines Associa-
H' kU. tlon. A committee of fifteen was appointed
HV '-H J to tnko cliargo of this matter, and it is to
H; aBf be jircsumed tliat an agreement will speed-

HI, B- opinion in favor of the establishment of
Hr -i Wm business headquarters for the convenience
H' ;- H, and entertainment of buyers in the various
B 1 1 UV departments of trade ; and it seems to us
HB. Hj- that this idea is an excellent one. For
HB' 1H tome lines of trade quarters of the kind

H' 5 m'-i a Tuesday's meeting ; and there is no need to

fl P 1 " Wholesale Merchants' Association.
B R B , As to tho business advantages that arise
Kfi' il i ' 'r("n attracting visitors to the city, are-
Br, 3 v; . mnrlcable statement was mode at the meet-
Br 1 1 'nK ''" n representative of a very large

B ffl '' " Monument, though he had previously sup-
HB i 3 ! posed that not another wholesale buyer
HVJ 111 could bo found anywhere by tho company's
flH i I IIU' ' (gents. There Is a lesson for business
H ! llK1 ' bouses in tills statement, and It Is that the
Hflfll ' IlH " drawing hither of strangers Is a good thing
BBBl r IH'c - for the city. As Now York becomes more
BHJ I I 1,': ' And more attractive, its interests are the
BHh - I yi better promoted. We inaysometlmo think
H I Is , it desirable to get up an Exposition as
H I h much superior to that ut Naslivlllo as to the

BflBB B y elation ; mid we would like It if yet larger
( '' projects were taken up by the same body,
HHI If In conjunction with other business organ!-
H fl) ' eat ions. New York has a number of bus-
BB t .f tllng rompetitors In these days, some of
Blffi h '' them on tho seaboard and others of them
HHBl Vj Inland, and tho supremacy wo have so long
Bt Hk licld as tlio, commercial metropolis of tho

HMH I ' Kreatest enterprise. Let all other places

Bflflflflfl . I ? York never fail to look after her manifold
flflflflflj I ' Another thing to be seriously thought of
BflBH ! I ' l our trado with other American coun-
HH f' tries, as to which a hint may be use-
flflflflBJ ) "' st year a number of our com-
HB I ' mcrcial explorers made a business tour
BR I 1 through Bomo of the countries of South
H I : America, visiting Argentina, Uruguay and
HB ' I ? Brazil; and this year a commercial delega-
HJ ,1 ' tlon of about sixty members ore coming
Bffi ' ncro from South America and Mexico for
HB tho purpose of inspecting our marketable
staple, and for that of examining the op
portunities for the extension of trade be
tween their own countries and tho United
States. It is expected that this Important
body of delegates will arrive hero early
next month, and It Is their design to maka
a tour through tho States of this country.
The hint wo give is that they bo properly
As our commercial explorers wero well
received In the South American countries
which they visited last year, this coming
commercial party from South America
ought to be at least as well received hero.
We have learned that tho Now York Board
of Trado has begun to mako preparations
for their coming, and that other mercan
tile bodies may unite In offering a suit
able reception to the visitors. We bcllovo
that they aro to bo under tho guidance of a
business committee whilo in Now York,
and wo have no doubt that they will enjoy
such banquets as may be provided for them.
It Is, however, for business purposes that
they arc coming here, nnd they will doubt
less desire to spend most of their time in
prosecuting tho investigations which It is
their purpose to make. It Is their object
to ascertain by what means our commer
cial exchanges with them can be en
larged, to tho advantage, of all par
ties, and what Inducements we can
offer them to trado with us. This Is
Important business for them and for us. It
Is not to their interest nor to ours that Eng
land and Germany should continuo to con
trol so very large a proportion of tho trade
of their countries. We would like to Im
port more from them and export more to
them. Our enterprising merchants ought
to bo able to compcto with Europeans in tho
South American markets.
It is stated in nn English contemporary,
tho Manchester Courier, that tho "United
States Government may soon mako an nt
tempt to establish preferential trado rela
tions with the countries of South Amer
ica;" but we do not believe that tho Courier
got this information at Washington, or from
the United States.
England and Germany are enriched by
their trade with South American coun
tries. This truth Is deserving of more at
tention than it has yet received from the
Chamber of Commerce, tho Board of Trade,
the Merchants' Club, tho Wholesalo Mer
chants' Association, the Importers and
Traders' Club, tho Produce Exchange, or
any of the organizations of American man
ufacturers. All such bodies will have an op
portunity for usefulness when tho delegates
from South American business Institutions
arrive in New York next month.
The commercial explorers who went from
this country to South America last year did
not accomplish much, though they had a
good time there. Wo trust that tho South
Americans who arc soon to be among us
will accomplish a great deal more, and en
joy themselves, too.
The Itnssians and tlio Greeks.
When the Greeks first rose at Canea In
defenco of tho Christians against the Mo
hammedans, Russians here wanted the
priests of the Russian Orthodox churches
in this country to offer public prayers at
church services for tho success of the Greek
arms against Turkey. But then came, the
news that the small Russian warship,
Groziastcby, was helping tho war vessels
of tho other great powers to blockade
Canea, and actually shelling it, the
Caneans' wall serving as shelter to the in
surgents, men of the same ancient religious
faith as the Greeks and the Russians. Af
terward Russian sailors who refused to Are
at their fellow religionists were court
martlalled and acquitted by tho military
court at Sevastopol !
Although Greeks and Russians seldom
hold any social intercourse when residing
in foreign countries, they generally attend
each other's places of worship wherever
they have no separate church of their own.
Thus in Allegheny, where there is no Greek
church, residents of that nationality used
to attend regularly tho local Russian
church; but, in consequence of the devel
opments of the last few weeks, they have
ceased from such attendance, even at the
expense of foregoing their Lenten com
munion, which is an all-important cere
mony with peoplo of their faith. They
scorn to join In worship with the Rus
sians, with people who "side with the
Turks" and "prevent Greece from freeing
Only a few days ago some Syrians of New
York, men of the samo religion as the
Greek, and dwelling here, one might sup
pose, in full enjoyment of their right to
their political opinions, without fear of
Czar, King, or Sultan, entered Into a
pitched battle in a restaurant in Washing
ton street; all on account of the Syrians
resenting tho presumption of tho Greeks in
constituting themselves the defenders and
leaders of the Christians in tho Sultan's do
mains! Tho explanation advanced at the
tlmeof the arrest of the parties, that the Syri
ans wore fezes and were therefore taken for
Turks, Is preposterous ; for Greeks as well
as Syrians wear thoTurkish fez In the East,
and would never tako each other's language
for the Turkish tongue.
At the blackest period of Russia's war
against Turkey for the liberation of tho
persecuted Christians of Bulgaria, In 1877,
when Russians fell by tens of thousands
before Plevna, and when every little as
sistance from tho outside would have been
of great help, tho Greeks looked on
placidly, never giving the least trouble to
tlio Sultan, while their ro-rellglonists were
slaughtered. When questioned as to their
indifference, Greeks of London or Paris
would shrug their shoulders and say, be
tween two puffs of their cigarettes : "Que
voulez vouh I Those Slavs aro such n trou
blesome race; let us hope right will pre
vail in tho cud, and bo thankful that such
of the Russians as fall, die In tho security
of belonging to the right faith, the faith
established by CnniST Himself and His
In the face of all this, how can wo help
asking If a common religion really con
stitutes a Ixmd of sentiment between
nationalities. But, actually, aro tho Ital
ians, tho French, and tho Spaniards thus
bound together, though they all hold to tho
samo Roman Catholic faith? The bond of
a common race seems to be the stronger by
far ; and whenever Pan-Hellenic tendencies
appear, they are most likely to clash with
Pan-Slavonic aspirations, Tho Greeks hav
ing been opponents of the interests of Rus
sia in the East, the Russians cannot avoid
the suspicion that Greece has been started
on Its present course by Russia's traditional
enemy, England, Is upheld by British gold,
and directed from revolutionary commit
tees having tholr headquarters in London.
It is remarkable that tho ruling families
of Greece and Russia are closely allied by
tics of blood relationship and of intimate,
lifelong friendship; yet, neither at tho time
of the Russo-Turklsh war nor in the
present crisis has this accident of relation
ship asserted Itself against either nation's
:..f,n !,? ,,J.n$t atl;'r.u..uv;,t...;4..i r i'uIi.
tendencies. Whatovor tho deficiencies of
tho ruling families of Russia and of Grccco,
It must be said that, having thrown in
their lot with tholr respective peoplo, they
do not allow family considerations to turn
tho scales against the demand of those they
aro called upon to rulo.
An English Statistician on Now
In its May number tho Kori h American
Review has begun tho publication of a
series of articles on tho "Progress of tho
United States," by Mr. MiciiAin. G. Mul
)IAI,I., tho well-known British statistician;
and tho progress of this country during the
last fifty years, ho says, surpasses that exhib
ited by any other nation, in ancient or mod
ern times, whether vlowcd In regard to pop
ulation or to Industry and wealth.
The first article of tho scrlos is devoted to
New England, tho population of which haa
not , quite doubled in tlio last half century,
whereas that of tho Union, considered as a
whole, has nearly trebled. Tho relatlvo
backwardness of tho Northeastern States
from this point of viow is consldcredby
Mr. Mumiall as " not surprising, Btnce tho
room for expansion is less, tho density of
population being seventy-flvo persons to
tho square mile, whilo It Is only twenty
thrco for the wholo Union." Tho statement
In regard to the density of the Now Eng
land population needs to bo qualified. It
Is only Rhode Island, Connecticut, and
Massachusetts that can bo said to bo dense
ly peopled. This Is not true of Vermont or
of Now Hampshire, and In Malno tho popu
lation Is extremely thin. The last-named
State la about as largo as Ireland and nearly
thrco times as large oa Belgium, yet, in
stead of having from 5,000,000 to 7,000,
000 Inhabitants, It had in 18U0only 001,
000, which was but 70,000 more than It
had in 1850. Now Hampshire in 1800 had
gained but C0.000 In forty years, and Ver
mont during the samo period had gained
but 17,000. It is, of course, because Massa
chusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut
are the great manufacturing States of their
section that they exhibit a much greater In
crease of population. It Is not farming
under tho unpromising conditions presented
In New England, but manufacturing which
has tempted foreigners to settlo In that
part of tho Union to such an extent
that, according to the census of 1800,
half the population is composed of im
migrants and their children. Of tlio
Immigrants, as Mr. Mnr.HALL notes, Irish
and tho French Canadians constitute 70
per cent. The growth of manufactures and
the coincident decline of agriculture have
naturally led also to tho concentration of
tho New England' people in towns. Mr.
Mumiall points out that tho urban popu
lation, by which he means tho population
of all towns containing over 10,000 souls,
has more than doubled since 1870, while
the rural population has stood still. In
deed, in Maine, Vermont, and Rhode Island
the rural population has diminished. This,
notwithstanding the large number of aban
doned farms which havo been occupied and
reclaimed by French Canadians.
With regard to the decline of agriculture
In New England, there are to be noted cer
tain contradictory and paradoxical facts.
In the first place, tho cultivated area has
unquestionably shrunk from 11,150,000
acres to 10,7-10,000; it is also undcniablo
that the annual output of grain has fallen
from 525,000 tons In 1850 to 470,000 in
1893; that of potatoes from 460,000 tons
to 400,000 ; that of meat from 108,000 to
81,000 tons. Nevertheless, tho falling off In
these staples is mora than made good by
tho Increased output of milk and butter, so
that, whilo the average value of farm prod
uts for tho wholo Union Is only $11 per
acre, the average for Now England Is $14
per acre. Another circumstance, which at
first sight is hard to reconcile with tho
shrinkage of tho rural population, is tho
remarkable rise in tho vaiuo of land
in Now England. The census of 1800
shows nn Increase of 9150,000,000 In
farming capital since 1850; while the av
erage value of land per acre rose during
the same forty years from $34 to $40; in
Rhode Island it nearly doubled. The con
clusion drawn by Mr. Muliiau. from these
ostensibly conflicting data is that a remark
able extension of dairy farming has sensibly
enhanced tho value of agricultural land.
Ho directs our attention to the fact that,
between 1850 and 1800, although horned
cattle declined by 00,000 head, tho number
of milch cows rose from 008,000 to 821 ,000,
an Incrcnso of 35 per cent. Tho number,
however, is still insufficient to supply tho
population with milk and butter, as there
should be, at least, one milch cow for overy
five inhabitants; or, say 1,040,000 kine. It
seems a reasonable inference that pas
ture land in Now England Is likely to ap
preciate somewhat In valuo for some time
It Is In regard to Now England's manu
factures that Mr. Muluall speaks with as
much enthusiasm as can be expected from
a statistician. Ho begins by directing at
tention to tho fact that tho valuo of tho
output from the factories had positively
quintupled since 1850. It is pointed out
that, relatively to population, no European
country can vlo with New Eugland In
respect of manufactures. Tho valuo of tho
annual output represents In hor caso$31D
per Inhabitant; in tho caso of Great
Britain, $115 ; In the cas of Belgium, $88,
and in that of Franco, $74. The rate, more
over, at which manufactures havo advanced
has been incomparably greater in New Eng
land than in Great Brituin. The annual valuo
of manufactures per inhabitant In Great
Britain was $111 in 1850, and but $115 In
1800; during tho samo period It rose in
New England from $104 to $310. In other
words, British manufactures during the
last forty years have dono littlo more thon
keep paco with population, while thoso of
New England show a ratio per Inhabitant
three times greater than that of 1850.
Bootmaklng Is carried on in New England
to a degreo that eclipses all European na
tions. The valuo of tho boots and shoes
manufactured in 1800 was for Now Eng
land $1117,000,000; for Gormauy $158,
000,000 ; for Great Britain $144,000,000.
and for Franco $110,000,000. If wo con
sider tho ratio of this Industry to tho popu
lation, wo find that the value of tho boots
and shoes annually produced represented
for Great Britain $4 per Inhabitant; for
Frauco and Germany $3 each, and for New
England $30 per inhabitant.
In that part of Mr. Mui.tiall's article to
which we havo hero referred hedoesnotomit
to chronicle the capital fact that the wages
of operatives In New England have risen
In even higher ratio than tho output. Tho
number of hands employed In 1850 was
313,000, and In 1800 885,000 ; during the
Bamo period tho average annual wages per
operatlvo rose from $240 to $400, repre
senting an Increase of 01 per cent. In 1 800
wages averaged in Now England exactly
$0 per week ; tho average throughout the
United States having been $0.30. These
rates, Mr. Mulhali, reminds us, aro higher
itti.M.,-.rtH.l,..) . .,j 1,1. i'.ir. j, m t, .j..,, mi '.iHfcU

than those in Europe, and, as tho cost of
food Is less, tho New England operative la
In a better position than are factory hands
in Groat Britain, France, or Germany.
la This to Uo tho Policy of tho Epis
Tho Iter. Dr. RAlNBroRD, preaching at
Trinity this week, mado certain assertions,
generalizations, criticisms, and suggestions,
among which were tho following:
" I hare wltneiaed tbo aad pectaol of nineteen
churohea moTlng further uptown. Can uxj man bo
blind to tho fact that It haa been and la the poll,
noltnt voltnt, to take tpaclona cburchm away from
the peoplo who ment urgently need them?"
" The Church, let mo tell 70U, la tho only aaf egnard
oftocletr. The tlmo will oome when rich men, real
lilng thla tlgnlflcant truth, will Kite their millions to
build churchca, not for themselves to euter, but for
" Thoao people for whom I plead cannot pay for
ehurcheti ther cannot, many of them, eren pax for
food and ahelter."
"Endowed churchea will meet the demanda of thla
' Another thing we want la freedom of apeeoh In
onr pulpit. Kndowed churches will help u here
alao. Let your mlnUtera be free from flnanolal obli
gation to their partihloners. ao that they may look
at rich men and poor meu alike, knowing no man'a
fear and bowing to no maaa favor. Let no on or
two men hold a parlth by the throat."
" In this day, the man who aeeks to establish a trust
In religion, no matter how good bis motives may be,
will be handed down to hatred and contempt"
"Tho tin of our tlmea la tha giving of too much
prominence to wealth."
"We hem and baw; wewattforacne. The times In
which wa live demand aomethlng more than thai.
Let your clergymen be abaoluto and beyond the 00a
trol of monetary considerations."
It is remarkablo that tho cry of Insuf
ficient church accommodations In tho lower
part of the town because of tho removal of
so many churches to tho northward, comes
from Protestant ministers almost exclu
sively, and from Episcopal ministers raoro
especially. Tho removal of n church from
a particular district would seem to be an
indication that it is no longer needed there,
and must go away to save Itself from decay.
Tho religious character of tho population
in tlio lower part of tho town has changed
radically during tho last generation, and
churches which formerly supplied the de
mands of the residents are out of place
there. Tho vast majority of tho popula
tion could not be induced to enter Protes
tant churches oven If they were on every
corner. Tho Roman Catholic priests of tho
great parishes in theso districts are tireless
In the performance of their duties and
functions. For the largo Jewish popula
tion numerous synagogues are provided.
All told, there are something like 100
churches and synagogues and missions in
the region below Fourteenth street, to which
Dr. RAiNSFonn referred, and actually there
is no such deficiency of religious privileges
ns ho assumes.
The churches which aro most prosperous
spiritually In this city are not endowed ;
and generally, It may bo said, when a
church In this country requires an endow
ment to keep It going, it docs not appeal to
the hearts of the people and Is without
warm and vital faith. Great Catholic
churches are maintained in the poorest
neighborhoods by the contributions of tlio
attendants who crowd their services. In
New York peoplo who really desire reli
gious privileges, aro never deprived of them
liccause of their poverty. The church endow
ments asked for by Dr. Rainsfokd would
not tend to religious faith, but might tend
rather to kill It among tho people. Only
churches not wanted by the people, which
do not supply the religious craving of tho
people, are -dependent on endowments, to
keep the lamp of their religion burning.
If "tho sin of our times is the giving of too
much prominence to wraith," who elso
is so flagrantly guilty of that sin as Dr.
Rainhforu himself when he practically
makes tbo Church Itself dependent for its
existence upon rich men J He holds forth
to rich men tho menace of the destruction
of society, involving, of course, the destruc
tion of their own wealth, if they do not
come forward with their money to endow
churches, according to his planl "Tho
tlmo will come," ho cried at Trinity,
"when rich men, realizing this significant
truth, will give their millions to build
churches, not for themselves to enter, but
for tho people." Is It so certain. If the rich
men build tho churches, that tho people
will enter them? Suppose they aro not
churches tho peoplo want, and that tlio
peoplo resent religious propagandlsm
carried on by tho wealth to which Dr.
RAiNsronn appeals? They may prefer
churches not of the Episcopal faith.
Ho wants endowed churches in order
to get " freedom of speech in our pulpits," so
that ministers " may look at rich men and
poor men alike, knowing no man's fear and
bowing to no man's favor;" so that tho
clergy may be "absolute and beyond tho
control of monetary considerations." If en
dowments aro necessary for any such
purpose, tho clergy aro not worth sup
porting by anybody. If their consciences
arc purchasable, as Dr. RAiNsronn Implies,
they aro not servants of tho Lord, but aro
wearing His livery in order to serve tho
duvll. If the truth alono docs not control
tho pulpit, but tho minister has to ho
bought with an endowment to obey tho
solemn pledges of his ordination, alas for
the Church of Godl It is of earth, and not
of heaven, and It should be swept away and
destroyed as a blasphemous sham.
Finally, is tho Episcopal Church under
tlio lead of Dr. Rainsford, nay of Bishop
PoTTKit himself, to bo used as a means of
extorting contributions from rich men as a
sort of pretended insurance of their prop
erty against tho assaults of envious anar
chy ? Is that Church to adopt the policy of
thus terrifying wealth In order that It may
extend its Influence among the discontent
ed, the rebellious, and tho turbulent, and
thus widen tlio Home what narrow limits
within which its influence Is now confined?
It is a fatal policy, and cannot bo pursued
without provoking tho contempt of thoso
for whoso attraction it is suggested. Tho
Roman Catholic Church is beyond sucii de
basement. Throughout tho world tlio angry
discontent of society Is held in restraint by
tlio beautiful and wholly noblo doctrines of
self-renunciation and obedience taught by
that ancient Church. So also the great de
nominations of Protestantism in this coun
try, the Methodists, tho Baptists, and the
Presbyterians, are conservative social forces
of Inestimable value. They exert influences
tending to vigorous manhood and good
citizenship, and are of prime Importance in
tho preservation of our Institutions and
Mr. Moody, to his great honor tie It said,
has never appealed to social discontent and
never pandered to tho enemies of society,
who aro striving to arouse envy and hatred
of tho rich among tho great mass of the
community. The same is true of Balling
ton Booth aud his eloquent aud enthusi
astic wife, and also of tbo Salvation Army.
They are not social firebrands, pestilent
demagogues. They are workingfor thosav
Ingot men's souls, not for the destruction of
civilization; but to inch disaster society will
tend logically If It becomes imbued with
tho spirit manifested by Dr. RAlrrsronD,
and occasionally by his Bishop.
Tho Bloyclo Police.
It is error to think, because New York's
lithe-limbed bicycle policemen roll along
oaslly and keep their vertebras in proper lino,
that they have not spirit which can riso to
tho occasion. Tho report of the Police De
partment for tho year ending Jon.
1, 1807, shows that during tho year
tho blcyclo squad mado 1,318 arrests,
and that tho fines collected therefrom
amounted to $1,812. Tho greatest number
of arrests for one offenco was 150 scorchers,
but, in addition to wheelmen, burglnrs, reck
less drivers, vagrants, drunkards, and many
offenders of other sorts, such as bill posters
nnd crop shooters, wero taken In by tho
Pedestrians have frequently measured
speed with tho officers, who havo collared
tho pursued after making flying leaps from
their wheels. The public has found that
tho law-preserving stcol-framo Btraddlcrn

streak lightning; and when a fugitive sees
ono of tho officers unllmbering ho may as
well surrender. How did wo get along
without blcyclo cops?
The Hoko Smith Fountain.
With a few burning words of Indignant
comment, a friend of the Hon. Dink Botts
of Georgia sends us a copy of tho Atlanta
Journal, containing a beautiful picture
and a glowing description of "tho Hoko
Smith Fountain," recently completed at
Hot Springs, Arkansas.
According to Mr. Hoke Smitii's news
paper, tho Hoko Smith Fountain was
erected by the citizens of Hot Springs "to
commemorate tho administration of Mr.
Hoke Smith as Secretary of the Interior."
Hot Springs Is on a Government reserva
tion, and therefore is under the control of
the Interior Department. The memorial to
Hocus'a administration of the Hot Springs
Is a shaft of sandstono seventeen feet high,
surmounted by n big ball. It differs
from most memorial fountains in carrying
an electric light equipment, so that it can
bo found by tourists and invalids by night
as easily as by day. Hoke Smith's honored
name is on it in large sandstone letters, and
tho fountain squirts healing waters In sev
eral directions. It Is not a thing of beauty,
but neither is Hocus.
The complaint of our Georgia correspond
ent Is that tho Hon. Hoke Smith should
havo a fountain lighted by electricity on a
Government reservation, while no memo
rial of any sort has yet lieen erected
to tho Hon. Di.vk Botts, whom many
Georgians regard as a greater states
man than Hoke, and worthier of
a monument of sandstone. Wo shall
not attempt to decide this delicate ques
tion. Perhaps It is better as it is. The
Hoko Smith Monument has a dreadfully
mortuary aspect somehow, In spite of tho
four trickling catadupes that emerge from
its four corners and fall Into four little
stone tanks. The Impression mast be
holders will get is that Hocus is gone but
As for the Hon. Dink Botts, he is yet
very much alive, with the golden future
of political distinction all before him ; and
would ho care to bo commemorated by any
sort of a hydrant, anyway ?
Tho Now Situation for Greece.
The stand made by tho Greeks at Veles
tlno and Pharsala entitles them to the
highest credit, but tho superior forco of the
Turks prevailed, and the main body of
tbo Greeks Is now behind Its third and
last lino of defenco in Thessaly, cover
ing the roads leading over the Othrys
mountains Into tho valley of the Spcrchius.
The reports of the lighting at the points of
the line west of Velestino show that the
retreat from Pharsala to Dhomoko was duo
to tho overwhelming preponderance of the
Turkish forces, and to the dilllculty of
keeping the western wing of the Greeks
properly supplied. As preparations for
making a stand nt Dhomoko havo been
going on for somo little time, they have
no doubt accumulated a sufficiency of stores
forthe troops now concentrated there under
tho Crown Prince. With regard to Velcs
tlno, the brigade under Gen. Smolenits
that has so gallantly held that point has
fallen back on Armyros. With the retreat
to Dhomoko and Volo, the wholo of the
plalnof Thessaly is abandoned tothe Turks.
There are various reports of movements of
tho Turkish and Greek warships in tho
.iEgean, but the moment is past when any
useful result could ensue from a conflict
between the two squadrons.
Tho chief interest of tho situation now
lies in what tho powers may do and
whether the Sultan will bo disposed to
listen to proposals for a complete evacua
tion of the Greek territory occupied by his '
troops. It is true that when giving
tho order for the advance of the nnny under
Edhem Pasha, ho went through the form
of disclaiming any designs of territorial
conquest, but he may insist on making
such terms of pearo after having so
cured a freo hand tli.it somo of
tho powers, If not all, may feel
compelled to intervene to restore thcfafn.s
quo territorially. But It has already been
suggested that Greeco should bo called on
to pay an Indemnity to Turkey. If fixed at
a llguro too high for Greeco to meet
Immediately, the Sultan has precedent for
demanding that Greek territory shall
bo occupied until tho last Installment is
paid ; and it needs no gift of prophecy to
understand that in the circumstances under
which tho war was made, Greeco will
bo ablo to rolso money only on tho
most onerous conditions. Tho disposition
has been all through to support the Turk,
andnppareutly it continues so. If tlio money
is lent, It will almost certainly bo on condi
tion that Greece places itself In tho hands
of an international commission of con
trol; between which and a Turkish
occupation there will bo littlo to choose,
Tho first thing, however, to do now is for
tho friends of Greeco to bring about a sus
pension of hostilities, and let the unfortu
nate peasants who havo fled from their
villages return to tho cultivation of their
fields; otherwise famlno must follow upon
war. Diplomacy may then take its course,
whatever that may be. What hope there
might bo that It will bo Inspired by any
great or generous idea, is damped when
one reads that Lord Samshdhy was yester
day holding forth to a Primrose League
audienco in London on the necessity of
adhering to tho Treaty of Paris, a treaty
Russia shattered after tho Franco-German
war, and finally demolished In 1878 with
the assistance of the Berlin Congress.
The excellent young gentlemen who, as
Citizen Unionists, started out to nominate jrood
men, untainted with political dealings, for
Greater New York candidates, must withdraw
from the Citizens' Union u now directed and
nominate at once by themselves. They are be-'
trayed. To stand by their principles they will
have to (ret tholr own candidates immediately
and stand by them like tho frenulno Good Gov
ernment voters of 1803 there wero about a
thousand of them.

Two ITaja or Kens-Getting.
Of the 1.R00 notables who wero at tho Grand
Bazar da Charlie In Paris on Tuesday when the
great Are occurred, tho most notablo was tho
Duchcsso d'Alencon, the sister of the Empress of
Austria. Her fato was a matter of tho greatest
interest. All of tho newspapers devoted con
siderable energy to ascertain It. It would
seem that they worked on somewhat similar
lines, and they arrived at about tho same con
clusion; that is, the slow-poko papers, which aro
closely allied with the IForld and the Chicago
Associated Press. On Wednesday morning tha
World reported tho fate of the Duchesso thus:
"Lite nt night it was found that tho Duchesse
d'Alencon had got out alivo, but was too much
exhausted to go homo. She sat for a long time
in a ronclcrgo's lodge, unable even to tell who
It will be noticed that this is a notably clear
statement for tho World to make. There are
no qualifications about it. No "It is said." or
"it Is believed," or "it Is probable." or "it Is
thought," which are earmarks of tho cable Dod
der's cell, and which distinguish tho World'
cnblc news. Thero wero none of these but tho
clear statement, "It was found." nnd it seemed
to bo pretty well backed up, too, for the Herald
said In Its report, headed "Uy cablo to tho
' I now hear that Gen. Fevrlero oscaped with
only burns on tho head and hands, along with
Mine. Wilson, daughter of former President
Grevy, nnd Mine. La Uoulaye and the Duchesse
d'Alencon, who, too much exhausted to go home,
sat for a long time In a concierge's lodge, unable
even to say who she wns."
There could be no question about the enter
prise of tho Hertitd't correspondent in discover
ing tho fate of the Duchesso. Of course, the
Tribune correspondent heard something about
the Duchesse, and nhntlt heard read as follows:
" I now hear that (Jen. Fcvriere escaped with
only burns nn tho head ami hands, along with
Mnio. Wilson, daughter of former President
Gr6vy. and Mine. La Ikmlaye nnd the Duchesse
d'Alencon, who, too much exhausted to go home,
eat for u long tlmo In n, conclcrgo's lodge, unablo
even to say who slio was."
Tho World' other partner never hears any-
tiling except wuats "lit to print. This was
unquestionably lit to print, and tho Time
printed It this way:
"1 now hear that Gen. Kevritre escaped with
only burns on tho head and hands, along with
Mine. Wilson, daughter nf former President
Or cry, nnd Mine. La Honlnye and the Duchesso
d'Alrncon, who. too much exhausted to go home,
sat for h long time In a concierge's lodge, unablo
to say Mho she wns."
The World' other echo, the Pre, went to
Fress too early to "hear, and it said: "Tho
luchevie d'Alencon. sister of the Austrian Em
press. Is among the injured, the list of which In
This is what all the other echoes of the TPorM
and the Chicago Associated Press throughout
the (ountry said.
The news was In TnE Sun. which said:
"It ns nt first reported that she (tha
Duchesse) had got out in safety, but later report!
Brtv that she Is missing."
This was the fact. At the time It was printed
tho body of tho Duchesse had not been recov-
ered. It was recovered Wednesday, and in yes
terday's papers the fraternity of echoes say:
"During the afternoon the body ot the Duchess
d'Alencon und six others were identified."

To TnE Em-ron or TiiKFrx Sir.- It is sur

tho " chief cause of the general 111 feeling
