The spirit of mutual friendlines3which

If there are to be many such cases the

a bad cne after all. However, The

Losdojt, Sept. 7. Eastbourne had its

Loxdox, Sept. T. It is reported that the
British foreign office will take vigorous
measures in a few days to bring the Dar
denelles quest ion to a settlement. Lord
Salisbury has been mild in his policy to
ward Turkey, so much so that there has
been much complaint among British sub
jects at Constantinople that less respect
is shown for them than for the Germans.
Now, however, it is rumored on sound
authority that the attitude will be
changed, and that a bold demand will be
made upon the sultan to take a stand
ajainst the claims of Russia. There ap
pears to be no substantial ground for the
report that Germany and Austria have
given Lord Salisbury any advice on the
subject. lie has not yet asked their ad
vice, and posiibly may not, until he baa
exhausted the resources ot British diplo
macy at Constantinople. Then if he
finds the port obstinately bent upon
yielding to Russia, ha will probably con
sult the other powers. Lord Salisbury, it
is reported in usually well-informed
circles, will not, under any circumstances,
consent to the passage of the Dardenelles
by Russian war vessels under any guise. '
The Poles Eager to Get at Russia.
A Vienna dispatch says that the Aus
trian emperor is to some extent com
pensated for the disloyal attitude of the
Bohemians by the growing devotioD of
the Galician Poles. The latter are even
eager to see war break out in order that
they may have a chance to avenge tber
national wrongs on Russia, which
country they hold chiefly responsible fr
the destruction of Poland. At Cracow
the people march la the streets singing
the Polish national hymn and rhymes
violently abusive of Russia, and some
even personally directed at the czar. All
indications are that, in the event of a
Russian invasion of Galicia the Poles
will rise as one man to battle against
their hereditary enemies. The reason for
Polish devotion to Austria is that no
where has Austrian rule been more bene
ficent than in Austrian Poland.
Germans Feeling Warlike, Too.
In many parts of Germany yesterday
the people celebrated the anniversary of
the wee V which, twenty one years ago,
witnessed the overthrow of the French
and the surrender of Napoleon at Sedan.
The troops were absent at the manoeuvres,
hut multitudes of civilians visited the
cemeteries and placed flowers on the
graves of the soldiers. It was noticed that
the interest in the occasion was even
greater than last year, and the common
talk of the people Jwas that the scenes of
1S70-71 might soon again be repeated. The
war feeling in Germany is very strong,
and there is a general sentiment that th9
present tension cannot long continue, and
that France will either have to fight or
assume a more conciliatory attitude.
FRENCH MILITARY MANOEUVRES.
A Fire Days Rattle with 110.000 Men
Accidents In Germany.
Loxdos. Sept. 7. The second series of
the great Freuch army manoeuvres, in
which about 110,000 men are taking part,
commenced Saturday. The first series be
gan Sept. 3, and cousisted of the manoeu
vres of army corps against army corps.
The second series or "period" will last un
til Sept. 9 inclusive, and will consist of a
five-days' battle between General De Gal
liffet and Gen Saussier, the military gov
ernor of Paris, who has already been des
ignated as the probable commander-in-chief
of the French armies in case of war.
The final battle will take place Wednes
day around Vendenvre, thirteen miles
A Colonel's Skull Fractured.
Many accidents at the German military
manoeuvres are reported. While the
guards were practicing at KaUenborn,
Wednesday, Colonel Von der Goltz was
thrown from his horse and his skull frac
tured. Professor Bergmann was sum
moned, and he thinks that possibly
the colonel's life may be saved. Durin?
the manoeuvres at Warburg Captain
Bloch vou Blottwitz was kicked iu the
cheat by a horse and instantly killed.
Russian Editors' Views.
St. Petersburg, Sept. 7. The Russian
newspapers express confldence that, in
view of the entente between France and
Russia, the powers will hesitate to pro
test against Turkey's conoessioa to Rus
sia iu the matter of the Dardanelles, for
fear of raising thorny questions relative
to Eosnia, Egypt and Cyprus, while Tur
key, strigthened by knowledge of "the
Franco-Russian entente as a counterpoise
to the dreibund, will not easily be fcti
niated. Thus peace is insured. Troops
numbering 150.000 have been ordr.-ed to
Warsaw, this bringing the Russian
forces on the Polish frontier up to 500,0u0.
Here's Another Holy Coat.
LoN'Dox, Sept. 7. A letter from Moscow
says that the Treves exhibition has
stirred up the holy synod of Russia to the
defense of the holy coat preserved in the
cathedral at Moscow and said to be the
genuine, garment. The Russian holy coat
appears to have been preserved at Con
stantinople, and the Russians claim that
the garment at Treves is a spurious copy
of it, and that the Germans are not in
possession of the real holy coat.
Effective Way to End a Strike.
London, Sept. 7. The authorities of
Cracow, Poland, are treating a cabmen's
strike in that city in a manner that would
doubtless be very acceptable o tbe Lon

owners of the cabs for not coming to some
sort of arrangement with the men. the
only thing iusited upon by the orkiW
being that the cabs shall be run, whatever
