This Is a question asked by an abb?

other Intcrnretation than that It Is a

THE ?SflTKI? STATUS A.M? r.X<i.
Tho London Timm malte? a great
mistake in :ho nsaertlon that the de?
sire of the United States for a great
navy Is <ii ccied against England. The
I'lieJ I ForgOlfl thtt ir we chose- we
could bring a much strohgor cli trge
against Its nun country If it were i.e
ccss.tr>', and not find much difficulty in
substantiating It. For Ins-lance, as an
exchange aptly re mark?: What does

France, Germany, or liu-'sii could ever

England's erection of now defenses on
her North American frontiers and the
strengthening of .her old ones mark a
policy which could reasonably be con
struod into ,1 ihr. it against this coun?
try. Tin- United States disregards ?ho|
threat, however, but wants a larger
navy because her growing commercial
Import.mce, the 'threatened -ehcroach
m-.-nt of European nations, and the
<'ub.in and Hawaiian questions make
ibis nee ssavy.
VI It LIMA'S MEED,
The Southern Planter having declar?
ed 'that "it is not moro revenue that
wo heed, hut less expenditure," o?r
esteemed cont empor ary, the Richmond'
Dispatch, very properly remarks that,
"sugar-coat the thing us you may, the
people will not willingly bear one
dein more of taxation until the Leg?
islature has exhausted every effort to
reduce expenses. And oven then, wo
venture to s.iv. fur one purpose only
WDUld they eons nt lo bear an addi?
tional 'tax?to support our disabled
veterans or their helpless widows.
"Tin.' bulk of the revenues of Virginia
conn- not from agricultural lands, but
from the cities, towns and villages.
And those people are net on,, whit biet
: >r able to stand an increase of taxa?
tion b all it by any name you choose)
than the country people; Yes. the
Planter Is righl?'what is need sd Is not
more revenue, but less expenditure.'
"We think Governor Tyler voices pub?
lic sentiment when ho says that Vir?
ginia would bi tter reduce the number of
ofllces than cut the pay down too low;
I hut he will doubtless ngrco with us
! that if the thing can't be done one way
It si-,.mid be done another ?way."
Virginia nei <is a reduction In expen?
ditures wherever H is possible, and
tho sooner the Legislature takes up
the matter the better.
lilt. IIAXXA'M FI KMT DEFEAT*
il't is astonishing to see how much
pleasure the prospective defeat or Mark
Hanna for re-election to tho Senate nf
fords the people, and what Is still more
noticeable, Is tho fact -111111 the feel?
ing prevails to almost as largo an ex?
tent among the Republicans <>s the
Democrats. The first battle between
th.- two factions in the Ohio Legisla?
ture iMondny for the organization of
ihe lower House resulted in 'the defeat
of Hanna. The opposition to Hanna Is
composed of Democrats and a few Re
| publicans owing allegiance to Kurtz,
i of Columbus; M.cKlsson, of Cleveland;
Governor Bushnoll and Senator For
akcr, and It will be the fight of his
life to overcome them, which it Is hoped
ar I believed be will not be nble to
In a few days the two Houses will
be called upon to elect Air. Manna's
successor, and in a review of tho sit?
uation tho Chicago Record says tha-t
it Is not to be doubted that Speaker
M tson will use all tin- Influence of his
position against Hanna ami in favor
of the Kurtz-McKisson-Fornker-dJush
nell clement, "in ibis work ho will have
ihe immense advantage which comes
fron tho power to distribute tho pa?
tronage of the Hons... That branch
of <the Legislature will be so organ?
ized as to give the Foraker contin?
gent every possible advantage. in
these conditions, and -with tho Senat?
in doubt, ihe chances of Mr. Hanna
are distinctly unfavorable. It has been ?
known for sonic time that at best he
could hope t<? secure an election only
I by a very narrow margin of votes.
I Now even this margin i3 in great doubt j
and if he Is to carry "the day ho 13 to
?iverform the extraordinary feat of
winning a majority on Joint ballot from
ra. house organized 'by hostile forces
and a Senate which a't best can but
cust belf of Its votes In his favor.
"Apart from all consideration of the
local and personal Issues Involved, the
thing which will most Impress the pub?
lic," observes our contemporary, "Is
the fact that It Is an administration can?
didate who is thus placed in Imminent
peril or defeat. Ohio Is Mr. MoKlnley's
own State: Hanno, is Mr. MoKlnley's
own lieutenant?the manaeer of his
campaign. If now Ilanna Is 'to be driven
from office It cannot 'bo expected that
the public will not regard the result as a
direct slap at the administration
by ambitious men who have followed
Mr. MoKlnley's leadership grudgingly
In the past and who strike out openly
and rebelilously for themselves in de?
fiance of his power anil prestige and
of their own party obligations."
Certainly this will be the effect, and
why shouldn't It?
