KuM?a'* Rotative PoNitioi
The Mal ti more San says. The M Y.
Journal of Uommeroe is at some pairs
to show that Russia is not equal to the
large part she is undertaking to play in
the world's drama, bat is, in fact, in
ierior in productive capacity, wealth
and intelligence to the nations with
which she ha?.to compete. Her ano
c^ses are in diplomacy?wherein bluf?
fing is the winning method?not in
actual achievement, in war or peaoe.
As a olYillwr her work is bound to be
inferior, it is suggested, because her
own civilization is woefully Inferior
Her position as arbiter of European ?
politics is due to her form of govern?
ment, which makes possible a contin?
uity of policy and pliancy In diplo?
macy which are impracticable for
countries having popular constitutions.
The railway development of Russia,
the Journal show?, Is small in compari?
son with her population She has bot
9.1 miles of road o each 10,000 of her
population, while Germany has 6. ">,
England B 8 and France 6 l As re
pects area she has bnt 1.1 miles of road
to each l(x> equate miles of territory,
while Oermany has 18.7, England IT I
aud France 18 1. The United 8tates,
on the other hand, has 80 0 miles of
road to each 10,000 inhabitant? and 0
miles of road to every 100 square miles.
The facilities of the Russian people for
transportation?for tho ultllization of
natural resources in domestic trade
are evidently very inadequate. Aa
respeots foreign trade her politl?n is
even worse She has but |3 10 of for- '
atgn trade per head of population, while
Germany has |37. 89, England i~
France |S7 40 and the United States,
I Russia's foreign trade is but
<"in"-fourt?H*ntu of the average of the
loading European ?> nntries and the
The manufacturing industries of
Russia are progressing, but they ate
comparatively undeveloped. Her manu?
factures are but tlf? s0 per head of
population, agaiu-t ??>'? SI per head in
Germany, $112 30 in England and
177.71 in France. Tested by her steam
power the industrial activity of Rus?
sia seems inconsiderable. She has but
one horse power to each 4M ? of popula?
tion, while Germany has one horse?
power to each t? 7 inhabitants Eng- '
land one horse-power to ea:h 8 inhabl- ?
tant* and Franoe one horse-power to
each 7.8 inhabitants. The United
States boasts one horse-power to each
4. 7 Inhabitants. Russia's shipping
tonnage is but B per cent, of that of
England and half that of France, so
that she seems to lack the conditions
for the creation of the first-class navy.
The material well-being of the popula- i
tion of a country is a rough measure of
its capacity to play a large part in Inter- ,
national affairs. Public wealth, and ,
well-being is indicated by the average
annual earnings of the population. For
Russia's 120,000,000 people the average
earnings per head in 1804 were 841-83, ;
as against #124 30 in Germany, 0183.60
In ?England, |15?.?0 in France and
8224 37 in the United States. Statistic?
of national wealth are often fanciful,
but taking the best figures available
we find that In 1894 the Russians aver?
aged but 82'5S per head, against %1'il
(Of the German?, 11,514 for the Eng?
lish, 01,276 for the French and 81,178 ,
for the United State?. The average
wealth of the subjeots of the Czar is
thus less than one-fourth of that of the
average In the other countries named.
The figures show that Russia is poor
in material wealth and unable to spare
much for protracted wars.
Her capital, such as it is, is not of a
nature to be applied readily to a given
enterprise. As for the Russian? them
selve?. while amiable, patient and loyal,
they are not individually eftioient. Ac?
cording to the Journal, they are ' 'stolid,
ignorant, passive and devoid of the
vitalizing force? of popular liberty and
personal initiative." They are not,
therefore, well fitted to civilize the
races they oonqaer. They may be su?
perior to the race? of Central Asia and
Siberia, but they are little more than
the equal? of the Chinese. They know
the law of force, hut have scarcely an
inkling of the sentiment of altruism
that fit? a nation to "take up tha
white man's burden." Russia will
doubtless acquire a large share of East?
ern Asia, but this will mean only that
more people are subjected to an inferior
and paralyzing regime. After all her
gains Russia will still be behind her
rivals. ' 'She will ho as much as ever, ' '
the Journal thinks, "unequal to the
accomplishment of her long-oherished
territorial ambition?, still wasting her
resources in preparing for impossible
oonqueats and still keeping the world
in suspenseful waiting for the great
Armageddon that is expected to deoide
whether the world shall be dominated
by the Slav or fostered by th? Anglo
Saxon and the Teuton. ' '
Deafness Cannot be Oared
by local applications, as thev cannot reach
the diseased portion ot the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of th?
mucous lining of the Knstachian Tube.
When this tube gets inflamed yon have a
rumbling sound or Imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed deafness is the re
suit, and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its nor?
mal condition, hearing will be destroyed
forover; nine cases out of ten are caused by
tit ml), which is nothing but an inflamed
condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give On? Hundred Dollar? for
any ca?e of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot bo cured by Hall's Catarrh

? ECTIONaL lines oblitkratid.
?Peace has come and with it the op?
portunity of retrospecting the blessingi
that have attended the call to arms and
its response. Ohief among them, and
bettet even than territoral expansion,
was the complete effacement of all sec?
tional lines?the baptism of the whole
people with the purest flame of patriot?
ism?that made the men who wore the
blue and the gray kindred In the face
of a common foe, comrades all beneath
their oountry's flag.
"Nothing can make more certain
the perpetuity of our free institutions
than the complete and perfect cohesion
of our own people, and out of the cru
oible of armed conflct and the com?
radeship that is born sronnd the camp
fire may come the very element most
essential to the best development of oar
' 'The Grand Army of the Republic
for more than a oentary has kept alive
the love of the flag, and the music of
the Union bos been playing ever since
the men were inarching in 1885. The
Confederate veterans,too, have kept the
campfire burning,and in memory have
lived the hardships of their campaigns ;
but the latitude of birth is now forgot -
ton, and the soldiers of the north and
of the south, as fellow-oomrades of
camp and field, are joined in a com?
mon song of triumph over tyranny.
"It Is therefore fitting and proper
that the feeling of fraternity so hap?
pily .born should be given substantial
expression and molded into permanent
form, and.it is to this end that the
society to be known as ' 'The service
Men of the Spanish War" is organised.
Its purpose is purely social und patriot?
ic ; to cement the friendships formed
in the war with Spain and to foster
fealty to onr free institutions, to weld
into a new brotherhood the young men
as well as the older ones who stood to
? gether for human liberty under the
I stars and stripes In the dawn of a new
\ century "
The plan of organization provides for
local and state camps and a national
camp, to be constituted by representa?
tives elected annually in the local
camps. The first camp organized, and
known a? Henry Clay, No. l, which
is located at Lexington, Ry., will be
the supreme body only until the first
assemblage of the representative? to
the national encampment.
