Lord Salisbury Became Alarmed at
GREAT BRITAIN, FRANCE AND
ITALY REFUSED TO SUPPORT
THE GERMAN EMPEROR IN HIS
PLAN TO BLOCKADE GREEK
PORTS?POPULAR OPINION '|N
THESE COUNTRIES ENTIRELY
WITH GREECE IN HER DESIRE
TO CONTROL CRETE.
London, "Feb. 20.- Cable copyright.?
Tin- situation in the. East at length
grows less obscure. There is a dead look
between the great powers regarding the
policy to in- pursued towards Greece.
Th's deadlock need uot disturb the
friends <>f Greeks and Cretans. It. makes
for righteousness. It haJ its origin in
the new force which entered into the sit
nation lust six days ago and which now
dominates it completely. The domestic
events id" these few days arc tew and
The llrst acts of war by Greece against
Turkey called forth the unanimous pro?
tests of six powers. Kinn George replied
in a message of virtual deliance. The
German emperor was so angered by this
all-wer that he cut oil diplomatic rela?
tions with Athens and invited the powers
to unite in a blockade of Creek ports
Great Britain, France and Italy, how?
ever, refuse to support the kaiser and all
for the same reason. Public opinion in
each country is almost unanimously on
the side ol* the Creek - and Cretan--.
Tin-is the new force which controls
the situation and which Lord Salisbury,
M, Haiioteaux and the Marquis du Ru
dini dare uot disregard. One, and per?
haps two. of these men are terribly an?
noyed and embarrassed by this nea* ele?
ment in tlie problem. M. Haiioteaux es?
pecially, If he dared, would advocate
drastic measures against Greece to com?
pel her to retire from Crete. If he has the
temerity to do so in the chamber of depu
ti.es,in Monday be will liecomeji private
oil i/.cti on Tnesday.
Public opinion in three nations of Eu?
rope where public opinion roigus has sud?
denly declared n virtue superior to that
of its rulers. It has defeated and demor
ali/ed diplomacy I was about to add
thill it had destroyed thai hideous moral
iniquity known as "The concert of Eu?
rope." It is more correct to say it has
? impelled diplomacy to recognize the
comm >n principles of Immunity.
It i-impossible to overlook the fact, |
now clearly revealed, that even Lord Sal?
isbury took warning Olllv just in time.
There is no lo-iger any doubt that the
British naval officers acted strictly ac?
cording to their instructions in threaten
ing to use force against the Greek war- j
ships it tiny attacked Turkish vessels
briluring reinforcement The outbreak i
of popular indignation came so quickly
in tills country that, tin- government in
alarm tried to evade the responsibility in
parliament. There was also an instant
change of policy, Lord Salisbury notify?
ing the powers two days Inter that Kim- j
laud would uot consent to any plan which [
contemplated the return of Crete to any
forms of Turkish control
Italy 'to day even goes further and
officially authorized the statement that
the power- will never constitute them?
selves guardians if Tin key. The Ger?
man emperor -lauds almost alone in un?
enviable prominence as the advocate of a
policy which is revolting to every natural
impulse. 1 le even went so far yesterday
as to notify the powers that he.would
not consent to any settlement ot tin
Cretan question which did not llrst com?
pel the evacuation of the island of G reece.
Kaiser William ha- done jointly stupid,
blundering things in .diplomatic affairs
during the past two years, but never,
anything which aroused such disgust IIS |
tin- among his own subject- and
throughout Europe. It is difficult, if
not ^impossible, to harmonize hi- posi?
tion. Hence the deadlock.
Russia's altitude continues to be a
mystery and Austria's is not clear. Run
-ia. however, realizes fully that ii *- Im?
possible for her ally. France, or for Eng?
land to defy public opinion when it has
made Us decree so absolute a- that re
corded this week. There i- no doubt,
therefore, that it will be the German em?
peror who will b u k down if harmony is
The position of Greece now Becms im?
pregnable morally. It would be the
highest political folly for the powers to
try to coerce her, even if every senti?
mental impulse Jdid not citnle.nn it.
She could ami probably would under
circumstances set tin- Balkans in a blaze,
The issue of peace oi war for'Europe
would be in liei hands.
It is Supposed to be the -itpieme object
tif each government to preserve peace.
They would hardly be ->> stupid, then, as
to leave the decision to the little king?
dom which has -o much to gain and SO
little to lose by war.
The report- grow more and more em?
phatic to the effect that a revolution in
Macedonia Is inevitable and that it is
close at band. There is every incentive,
therefore, to setl le the Cretan question

us quickly us possible ti> be ready to deal
with the new emergency.
The impression grows stronger that
the sultan would consent under pressure
to complete the autonomy of Crete. The
question really is whether the Greeks
will agree to this if it were coupled with
an assurance of the eventual annexation
of the island to their country. There Is
a growing opinion to-day that the mat?
ter will be settled on this basis.
The chief necessity of the moment is
that somebody suppress the bumptious

little kingdom at the European congress

ish, Italian and French marines art ?occu?
pying ' he town of Si tin, on the eastern
extremity of the Island, where a few
days ago two thosand Moslems were uuis
sacred by Christians. Quiet has been re?
stored ill the town and the presence of the
foreign mat ines is regarded as an nssur
ance that no fuithur disorder need be
Hostages have been and are still being
exchanged by the Christians and Mos?
lems and both sides show a readiness to
accept Eitropenn arbitration
In the town of Kettmo, however, disor?
der still prevails iiud the Moslems con?
tinue to pillage the houses of the Chris?
tians. The various consuls at Betlinc
have asked that more warships be seat
there to restore and preserve order.
The insurgents who are [occupying'the
hills back of Canea sent a warning in of
their intent ion to at tack the town from
Akrotiri. To this notice Admiral Cane
varo, commanding the combined fleets,
sent a reply giving the insurgent leaders
to understand that the freign warships
would intervene at the tirst sitms of at?
tack of the insurgents.
All provinces of Crete have voted for
union with Greece. This fact has been
communicated to the various consuls by
the Creek representatives.

A lull which was presented by the

on the Semite calendar for some time,
authorizing the appointment of a lal>or
commission, was taken up to day on mo?
tion of Mr. (jUliy, and was likely to lead
to a lorn; an.I animate ! debate, 'when

committee on appropriation-, ^interposed
with a motion to take up the Indian ap?

a majority of si\, thus relegating the

The Indian appropriation hill was
taken up and during its discussion the
decision of the supremo court in the in?
come tax ease was drought in question.
