NO HORNS TO HER ALTAR.
Verily poor old China is in hard line??.
She ean do nothing but acquiesce in
any terms which tho allies choose to
put upon her, and these appear to be
hard indeed. In consenting to them
the Flowery Kingdom will become a
door mat for every presumptuous for?
eign personage who may choose to
apit at her or wipe his feet upon her,
and any resistance upon her part
will be met by coercion and indem?
nity-squeezing by the real offender's
government. To say that she shall
not import firearms or war equip?
ments, that her forts shall be abolish?
ed and rated?ia short,that she shall
be tied oap-a-pie and governed as
foreign representatives dictate, is
one of the most enormous humilia?
tions that history has ever recorded,
or will ever be likely to chronicle.
We are indeed sorry for the poor
souls who already have so little sun?
shine in lue that it ia hardly prized
more than a state of non-existence.
While the Emperr of China may
eonaent to the terms submitted by
the Powers it is not at all likely
that the old Empress Dowager?who,
if still alive, is the real thing in the
ruling line?will agree to the drastic
terms; and aa only a small per cent.
of the Chinese kuow that their sol?
diers have been beaten and their
Kingdom is on the wing, it is very
probable that they would pin with
the Dowager Empress and continue
hostilities. The old lady may sur.
prise the world yet,as she has a large
amount of stiokatitiveness.
In discussing President McKin
ley's message Prof. Ooldwin Smith,
of Toronto, Canada, makes the same
point about the increase of the army
that The Free Lamb some months
ago expressed, namely, "The ex?
penditure which such a force would
entail is the least part of t he matter.
* ? ?Par more momentous are the
political consequences with which
the creation of a great standing
army, especially if it should be
largely manned by foreigners, meu
aoee the character of that which has
hitherto been an industrial common?
wealth." Whether this view will
prove a correct one or not will be
settled within a few years, for it
has been practically decided that the
United Btates shall assume a new
role among the nations and will
maintain a large standing army. Its
pelitieal fntnre, we naturally con?
clude, will veer widely from the paths
of its past history.
Speaking of the late advances in
quotations of Virginia State bond*
the Richmond Dispatch says:
"The advance in the selling prloe of
State bonds shows two thing?to wit :
1. That capitalists have faith In the
ability of Virginia to pay the Increas?
ed rate of interest, whioh begins July
1, 1901, and (2) that they bave no
distrust of the constitutional conven?
tion. In both respects their faith
Is well founded, we believe. ' '
True, these assumptions for faith
appear to be well founded. Th6re are
two things, however, in this oonnec.
tion which strike us significantly.
One is that the abundance of money
seeking investment and the early in.
erease in rate of interest to be carried
by these bonds make them subjects
for good investment The other is
that Virginia reaps no financial bene?
fit from the increased prices; she has
only a sentimental interest in the
rise of these bonds and a feeling of
some pride.
Christmas is a proper time to ex?
ercise a little eharity. Remember
the poor, lend a helping band to
gladen their hearts. If the Divine
benedictions have rested upon you
show your gratitude and remember
that He whose birth this festive day
commemorates says: "As much as
yon have done it unto one of these,
my desciples, yon have done it unto
me."
The Administration has shown a
great deal of diplomacy in dealing
with the Chinese question, but it
now begins to look like we will have to
recede from onr position and consent
to make the terms offered?or,rather,
thrnst upon China?"irrevocable,"
everlaetinly and eternally binding,
now and forevermore, without re.
course or abatement.
