no Sunday whiskers to disguise its

unconstitutionality was plainly visible.
Julge Burgess bad the honor of

of whiskers to yet cut oil at any, old

great hit with the Sabbatarians he
will be held in loving memory by the

others who fancy an iotibag as well a

WHAT WILL ENGLAND DO'.
Far-Reaching Eflect of the Turco
Washington, D. C, Jan. 23. Th
London cable giving the details of th
treaty reported to have been perfeetet
between Russia and Turkey was cii
culated on the floor of the Senate ti -day,
and was read with expressions o.
general interest, especially by th.
members of the Committee on Foreign
Relations. Senator Davis expresses
the sentiments of a majority of thi
committee when he said: "If true,
this is the most important diploma tit
event which has occurred in the past
fifty years. It means that Russia cat.
move her armies across the Turkish
border. Such a treaty would result
in the immediate settlement of the
Armenian question, and if France has
also entered into the alliance, as it ap
pears probable, tho result would be
that the fleet of those two countries
would virtually control the Mediterra
nean, and that means more than any
one can now foresee. It also means
that England will have something to
do besides bullying Uncle Sam."
Senators Lodge, Morgan and Culloin
read the report with avidity, and all
remarked upon the vas. importance of
the news if it should prove to be true.
Mr. Lodge said that a coalition be
tween Russia and Turkey such as that
indicated would mean that England
would have her hands full of business
on her own continent without interfer
ing in American affairs.

As for England's contention thu

jelongs to her, even if the boundr.
me be disputable, Prof. MeMaster de
lares it to be illogical and inequil
ible, and shows that she has not her-
elf insisted upon it in previous ant
imilar instances. He points out tha
n the case of Maine. England had de
la red that the watershed between tht
vtlantic and the St. Lawrence should

hed is coraparativelyeasy to find, sht
ocated it away down in the Maim

ettlement of her subjects in the dis
puted territory was asserted as hei
ight to said territory: but she re
ceded from that position, if not entire
ly, at least to an extent that implied
s practical relinquishment. These
conditions both obtain in the Venezue
lan controversy. That is to say, En
gland seeks in the first place to extend
a boundary according to her own in
terests and wishes, as in the case of
Maine; and if that will not answer,
then she claims that the disputed terri
tory is hers en tha ground that it is
occupied by her subjects, as in the
case of Oregon. The Monroe doctrine
is a protest against elaims of that
kind on this hemisphere, and a warn
ing that any attempt to enforce them
will be resisted by the United States.

Senor Salvador do Mendonca, Minis
er from Brazil to the United States
n communication with the Washinj
.on "Post'' with reference to Mr. D
,)ew"s spuech liefore the New York Bar
Association, writes as follows:
"Mr. Dejiew's fears that Venezuela
jr Brazil would be willing to sell
portion of their territory seems to
arry him to the conclusion that
irotectorate of the United States oi
America over its Latin neighbors
vouid oecome indispensable. In re
gard to this point Mr. Depew is as well
.i formed as in regard to the disposi
ion of property in the South Ameri
can countries at tho 'whim of the die
ators of the hour. From his iguor-
nce of the actual condition of the
atin-American nations he extorts the
.rgument that the only device to keep
uch nations in good liehavior towaru
he European Powers is to keep them
mtside of the protectorate of the re'
jublic of the north.
"If Mr. Chauneey M. Depew were as
ell acquainted with the Latin-Ameri-
an countries as he is with the finan
lal relations between this country and
Europe he would know that at present
nere are no dictators in South Ameri
ca, but Presidents, elected in accord
ance with the constitutional laws ot
the countries, and there is as much se-
urity of life and property either ol
citizens or foreigners in Brazil. Chili
or Argentine as there is in the United
otates or England, and that no self-
resjiecting Latin-American nation
would countenance the idea of a pro
tectorate, even if offered them by their
best and most powerful friend.
"The principal argument of Mr. De-
pew's theory is merely an absurdity.
When the United States proclaimed,
in 1823, the Monroe doctrine, its popu
lation amounted to 10,000,000, and at
that time this country had already
been twice victorious in foreign wars.
It is not much to assume that a coun
try like Brazil, for which alone I wish
to speak, with a population at present
of 18,500,000, and after seventy-four
years of constitutional government,
never aggressive, but always peaceful
and sell-reliant, would not require a
protectorate to maintain its sovereign
ty and independence.

IRISH OF GERMAN DESCENT,
A Race Mixture- Found In Various
Parts of the World.
Many jteople have been surprised io
learn that there are in Baltimore
German-Irishmen that is, jiersons
descended from German parents in
iteiand. Such Irishmen of German
orgin are, nowever. also to be found
elsewhere; thus, for instance, Bishop
Thomas Honacum, of Omaha, is an
irishman of German descent. The il
lustrate the reason for this the follow
ing facts might be of service: In the
year 1709 a great cumber of Palatines
were induced to emigrate, partly on
account of the distress consequent to
the French war, but more so on ac
count of the glowing accounts from
tae first German immigrants to Penn
sylvania. Thev came in great num
bers to Rotterdam, depending for as
sistance on England, whence already
in 1703 a great number of Palatines
had been transported to Xew York.
They came, however, in too great
numbers, and there were no vessels to
convey them from Rotterdam to Lon
don . For some time they were cared
for in the former city, but when this
proved too great a burden England
bad them transported to London,
waere they were housed and properly
But on the first of June the number
had grown to 10,000, in consequence
of which England caused a publication
to be made in Holland on June, 1709,
that no new immigrants would be
thenceforth received. Nevertheless,
until October, 1709, some 4000 more
The expense of supporting these
Germans at "Greenwich Camp,' near
London, was defrayed by large col

But even for wealthy England this
burden soon became too great, there
fore efforts were made to send these
people to America, and many of them
went to Schoharie, in New York.
Many of them died, but there still
remained a large number, so that
3800 Palatines were sent to Ireland,
where they settled in the County of
Limerick, making splendid progress
as skillful farmers and mechanics,
such as linen weavers. Philadelphia
