haiti larisa between tho two.it does not suit the
Barpsoaa of either that ?jr*fabeaaaallarPowan
ghoul 1 have tba chance of drawing strength from
ggMOfl ana independence. Beople talk glibly of
hastrio goaag aa Saloni.a as if it were a kind of
I . ...y exearaioa, Tbaj forget tti.it it means tho
cruaLtag of tho hopes ol three nations?Greece,
S mi and loig.ina.
- 1... -reit Bowers hive their jealousies among
tlirius lv<8. So havo tho smaller oues. 'lheill
freling between Uroeee and Bulgaria is th? chief
diiiuulty and danger of the whole matter. Tho
bops of the Southeastern lamia lies lu friendly
relations among the liberated nations. How hard
?neb Doaatiooa aro aa establish ia shown by tho
action p| both Ureoce and Servta on the occasion
of the Bulgatiau uniou. But the further advance
ol tba Heoaa of Austria means, if not tue utter
gheorptiou, at least the muted disunion and
woalmoai of ail. lt is inaeed by tho dlaanlon and
weakness of nations that the Austriau Power-not
anal ion, but a mero family estate?exists at all.
Billia, on the other haud. is a National Power and
baa the strength of ono. The natural sympathies
of the Baaaiaa people, as distinguished from the
BMtaan iiovernmeut, will always bo for any
fcuvoiiic and orthodox nation. But it is doubtless
easy in Kassia os it is in England so tc state
matters as to awaken unreasonable national
jealousies. Th? action of Bulgana may bo ho
spoktn of is to seem ungrateful to liussia, a Power
boa wti'ih a-c must not forget that Bulgaria
Las received real and great Lenouts,
" lt is QOita possible then that, besides the prcseut
irritation of the Czar, popular foeling in Bussia
may this time be against Bulgaria. But wo must
remember that as B"ssia is a nation, a Just and
generous polity on her part is not hupoasiblo, while
au., h policy is hardly conceivable on tho part of
tho Austrian Bower, which represents only the in?
terests ol a single family at the moment. Any ad
VOOOO of freedom or union is distasteful to both
p.iwem alike. Thc only question is whether they
viii bottle up their own ditierencoa in order to
atop what is so distasteful to both, or whether
gaaaa accident of the present state of things may
gaaaotha long-smouldering enmity to bnrBt iuto a
ll in?.
- Germany, on tho other hand, wonld seem to
have BO immediate interests which need dash with
those of the Southeastern nations. There ls, how?
ever, tba national ill-feeling between Greeks and
Dava, strongest among those who are really of
SlaYOOk descent, and it may not suit the possessors
ot Pooaa and North Sleswiek to encourage National
n BTI ii .nts anywhere. As long as l'rince Bismarck,
from whatever motive, takes the House of Austria,
it- shiel and his dominions under his somewhat
aoodoaooadiog oatrooaga\ so long whatever dis?
pleases that house or thwarts its policy cannot bo
ac . ptakla at Berlin for the moment.
"Tba Southeastern nations havo throe great
Powers which are nearest to them and all against
thora, lt is hard la seo how the turee (roo
Hattons of Western Farnpa Pngjaail. Franco and
lt.,. ?:. ave any diioet interest in the matter. The
gaaotstttioa that England has any interest in
goppofftlag tba Turk, that is, in prolonging the
boiulago of t.'io-..- parts of (Jreeco, Bulgan* and
lervia which he still bolds in bondage, is as absurd
galt ta immoral. But no argument will get it out
of those booda of arbieb it has once taken posses?
sion. Tho only question is whether the Turk is
Dow their worst enemy. It would be easier to turn
him out of Salonica now than it will bo to turu out
the Austrian it he ever gets in. On tho other hand.
lt is north thinking whether either au Austrian
occiipati&n of Salonica or a Russian occupation ol
Constantinople might not really be tho Uni step
to the splitting up of these Powers. If tho family
estate of Flam is Joseph were extended to the
JBgOM it Blight prove too largo -and roo oddly
formed and shaped for Iii ni to keep it together,
and it may be doubted whether either Constanti?
nople can be ruled trom St. Paaonbocajgwt St.
Petersburg from Constantinople. ConstJRinople
has been an imprtant city from its birth. Ob tba
one hand, can it ever he anythingelso T on the other,
eould geography allow it to become the centre of
Hie Bower ot KussiaT
"The outlook is very gloomy. The chances of
freedom depend wholly on the will of tho despotic
powers. iJiat fact must bo looked in the face.
fctat -men as a rule care little for tue freedmen of
other nations, and they are certainly not bound
asa mle to sacritice tho wellare of their own
Baaattr* to maintaining it Still, it is as well that
both statesmen and others should see clearly what
the st ute of the case is. The freedom and progress
ot the lauds already delivered, the hopes of the
lauds still la bondage, depend upon the will of twD
Powers, which have-one an abiding the other an
itninediate-iuteroBt in hindering their freedom
and Btoojtaaa, and tboil only hope seems to lie in
tho difficulty which th??e two Bowers must lind in
agreeing on any common scheme against tuem."

iONDoN. 8ept. 10.-The agitation for the relief of
Iiish tenant is bearing fruit in various directions,
cr Esslemont, member of Parliament tor AbaBBOt B,
! of the most active Scotch representatives, bas
en notice that en the earliest possible day of next
sion he will move thot in aaOjOaqBOBtiO of the altered
BSBBatBBOaa of the country legislative relief outfit

icr leakes. Mr. Esslemont hae given Tug Tiuwcni:
?re-entat ive tho following t?tat< in at I
About tho yoarlH2?-a tim.- following upon tho
BMb war and bad harvest* -the North of Scotland
s in a state of extreme poverty. 'Ihe population waa
operatively sparse and rt c?..d deal of lund went out
cultivation. A period of rc*t from national strife
1 military operation* ensued. Tho people at tho
wlands took to BsabOBdlJ. Herc there was little or
ne of the trilml rights and customs which prevailed i:i
' Highlands. The land wa* really or nominally
ned for thc most part by the bairds, who either had
t land hy giants lrom the Crown or had purchased
what would ha now termed nominal Otiose, Any
'Hons not ?o owned, known ns * cominonties.'or cum?
in linds, wert gradually absorbed by agreement
inn? the neighboring proprietors, ifle larger lanna
d building*, but in many :'a?es the people settled
WB, I .'. I Bf hooooi for themselves, mid hnd appnr
ned to them a specified number of acres. The value
produce gradually increased and a eonsequf nt rise
the value of land followed. Fixed period, of tenure
?re sought for by tenants and offered by proprietors
order that by bringing waste hinds under cultiva
m an opportuuitv would thereby bo afforded the
nant toreeoap himself for his labor and outlay,
ie BjatOBl of nint teen year leases became aiSSOOl
lver.-al. Land hunger increased with the popula
m. Tlie value of land increased ni.out ene per eant
r annum, or one-half from ls'J7 Io 1s77. Under
e circumstances the tenant was induced, in order to
tain preference, to offer a high rent, because he
ported thst during ninet-on year* the current
rreaso would accrue to him. Thc landlords took
vantage cf this and almcst invariably mnde it a con?
don that all improvements reverted to the proprie
r. This stipulation often induced the tenant to sub
it to the increase rather than forfeit tho Improve
imts. American competition mainly has brought u
,ang< from about 25 to 35 per cent in value ot agri
ltural produce, aud consequently the leaseholders
lio buw still from niue to eighteen years ol' tv lc Baas
run are gtadu-llv being drained of their BBVi&gl and
pital mid will inevitably be greatly impoverished
id not a lew be financially ruined unless the Letfslut
c intervene and afford them sonic relief.
"My main atgument lor proposed intervention is
at the fall in prices wu* unforeseen aud could not
ive been anticipated by any calculations founded
mn past expiritnoc. The strongest objection to this
heme is the well-known one ol tho inviolability of
ntract as botween man and man, ns bea ngents.
o demur to this dogma mid deny that tho tenant
idcr tho Scotch law was a free ag. nt. Bat apart
om flint good government must have in view the
catest good for the greatest number, mid cannot bj
strainad by any law, because regarding all material
bigs it must be held that any law winch millets
trdship on the people lor whoso benefit it was or
ight to havo ben enacted should be abolished. It
ust be borne lu mind that all laud capable ol profit*
ile cultivation has been already taken advantage of
id there is no elasticity in this direction.''

If tho above statement ls true it relieves those in
charge of the freight train and the traiu dis: Helier
from responsibility, iinJ places lt solely upon Con?
ductor Harrington arid Engineer Brewer. Persons at
Silver Creek assert that Hurrlugion signalled Brewer to
go ahead, but that lie did so on tho supposition that the
engineer had no. orders to the contrary, lhere having
been no orders given to either of ihcin at Silver Creek.

[BT TELF-OrUPTI TO TIIK TRI BIT-TIC. ]
Chicago. Sept. lG.-Tho Nat ional Con volition
' tbe Anti-Saloon Republicans began and concluded Its
sslons here to-day. The convention was called to
der promptly nt IO a. m., in the Madison Street
ieatre, and arter perfecting a temporary and porroa
mt organization adjourned until 2 o'clock In the after
ion. The resolutions were tersely expressed and
lopted with great) unanimity. The personnel of the
mventlon was of tbe highest typo, snd theil fsulty
. Republicanism was stoutly expressed. The
imbsr of ti.de/ates fell somewhat short of the number
meeter], but tho representation was general for all tbe
oitiicru ."tatos and large lu comparison from itbe
astern Htates. Kansas and Iowa had exceptionally
?rga delegations, while Wlsoonsln and Minnesota also
id a fair representation. The call did not extend west
f tbe Rocky Mouutalns, though a delegate from Nevada
?? present. Toe only Southern State represented was
asa* Ibo number of accredited delegates was 187.
The cot.venibm was called to order by Albert Griflitb,
f Kansas, who called upon tho Rev. Arthur Little to
pon the convention with prayer. Mr. Griffith then
atotl that ho had been instructed by tho Kansas dele
stion to make the following nominal.ons for temporary
Hicers : t [airman, UattSg States Senator W. II. lllalr,
r New-Hampshire; secretaries, J. Q Shaffer and L. R.
lliott; reading secretary, K. R. Hutchins. These
otnlnatious w.n. utveptel by acclamation, and Rufus
rest. Hlrssi Fttea SM JBgga Baylor were appoluteda
ommltteo toescort Seuator BtSif to tbe chuir. On
.king ibo ebal-. Senator Hiair said :
I feel highly honored in being called to preside tempo
irtljr oyer thia, whiaa i ballara to be a great historic
onveiitlori. I bell-ve the movement we Initiate to- tay
rill live In the ann .ls of our country aud ot all lime.
iie object of tlie con volition is fully set forth in the call,
rhlcli ls faiulttnr lo you. I take it it may bs ag*
titted that wo ara hera tu organ:*.-, for the destruction

md low licensed rum, wo ore for low license: between
he low license and the bleb lie.o.so of the rum truffle VS
? re for bleb license; and between Muli lief uso end pro
dbltlon, wo are for prohibition. [Loud applause] In
liking tins position, we commit no man's Coiiscit UOS to
lie theory t li at a license law, .indar any circumstances,
? right; but that lt may bo expedient, because lor me
IBM Mina it ls the best that can tie dona to restrain tho
um tr,tile ami to huston tl;o total prohibition of
be traffic.
We ?re an nssemblago of Republicans. Republicans
ti tba party and who own tho party, aud ire determined
n stay In tho |iarlr. [Loud appUuie. ] If any man
loos not like us, bo must leave ns, but ha must lenve the
{"publican party in so doline. I am ono of those wno
?elievo that tba Re pu bl tenn party ls tho only great
lOlltical orgaui/.aii'in through which wo cm hope for
se naas. [AppUtuse.] ( bara bo hope otherwise, fiiave
io wotd of blame (or those wno itm, r from me
vho here orcaulaed a third party, Toward noaa ol them
iavo I min single word of opposition. Most of thom aro
nen ofooflsetenoe ami high principia, and I only regret
hut they aro not with us to assist ns to control tho Ke
iiibllcaii part**. I believe, If tins convention can wisely
aka that sdraneed ground which tho conscience or tlio
unerican people demands of Us, they Will ba arith us,
?nd that within the lifetime of most of us we may see
tate and National prohtbltloa of th : liquor traine the

lt was then resolved that tho roll of the States be
ailed and that each delegation nama Its ropr.-soutH
Iveson Hie committees on credentials, resolutions, per
uaticnt organlz itloti and order of business. The com
mtteaon Paraaaeat Orgaslsstlos raeomtaeaded for
lerniunent oliairman ox-senator Wi Hem wTndom, of
ilinneiots. The temporary secretaries wera continuod
is the permanent ollie.ts. On taklhg tue chair Kr. Win
l.itu said:
Kor this highly appreciated honor I think you.
I'liere uro doubtless other gentlemen present wno could
ixplaln to you bettor than myself tbe objects ami pur
mses for which wo aro assembled, but I may
ron tura, whllo I occu;/ a few momouts
it your Hmo, to state what I understand
?o bo tho object aol purpose for which you
tat/a assembled. Wo aro here as true and loyal Rapub*
leans [applause), desiring through thal pa: ty to work
jut vant we believe will provo a groat nod to the
Vmeric in people. For myself I Will say that I have not
low and Borer have had Hie slightest thought of trying
? organise a aew political party. [Applause.] I think
hat lt has not entered luto the purpose of any gentle
nau here, or at leant but a very few, if any,
n this ouiiferenco lo organi/.a a tn ii .1 party. Tho
lld party that freed tho slave, that dignilleit and
?rumbled human lahor[appli.nse], thal enacted the homo
Head law and gave homes to the homeless throughout
til this broad land [applause], that saved tho Repubdo
In tho war [applause], that maintained Hs honor In the
[>ast and rescu-d it from tlio Hemooratlo bankruptcy aa*
'ailed upon it by Its predecessors In power, aud ad?
vanced it to tho very front place among the Nations of
the earth, is ii good enough party for me. (Long and
-ont! nueii applause.] Remember tts in story, its magma
[?eur courage, itsdafOBOS of tho poor and oppressed, Its
sublime snlf-saortflcn for tho Nation, Its devotion to
right under all clrcuin?tances during tho last tWOBtT
years ls to me a guarantee that, since this new Issue is
lo bo preses ted, lt will grapple with it ana intimately
carry it fas victory.
Ibo Issue which ls presented is, In my Judgment, a*
grave as any with which the Republican party has had
io do in the past and almost as ilih*1culi, but 1 may mil
that Ibo K-jpublltau uarty ill.I not sin ink from tue trials
of the past, ami I believe it will not shrink from thoso
Whleh oonrronl ll for tba future. Now, we have mel as
Republic ms. but we do not believe lu the right of the
saloons to govern tue country. [Loud applause.]
henator Windoin went on to say that they Blight dis?
cuss the rum powur from two standpoints. Its moral or
humanitarian aspect and its political aspect, but he i ii -
tended to contine himself to the political aspect. Ba
had said that the tiling most sacred in America's politics
ls the puniyof tho ballot-box,and th.ne again tbe saloou
power uiet thora with its most deadly force. The saloon
in.-u aerraptod politics with their money at the polls, iu
tba legislatures mill elsewhere. let lt once bo under?
stood liv tho American people that tba elections were
not carrlotl by their will, by the choice of the poop,e.
but were inttiietued by tho use of money, anti that votes
are bought and ,oid sud thereby the elections aro car?
ried, ami it struck down all confidence tu Hie future of
Hie republic. [Applause.] Vet the saloon power
boasted publicly that lt could control tho elections by
money. Ibis Issue was becoming more and mure Im?
portant every year.
He*, thcu referred to the prohibitionists as the third
party and drew an analogy between their position and
that taken tty the old Abolitionist (.arty, the maturity of
which Joined with the r'reosollers In organiziug ibo
present Republican party, through which the abolition
of slavery was accomplished and tho Union saved. Ho
called upon the I'roblbltlouisis to unite with the con?
vention mid force the Republican party to be the chatu
p.on of high i.cense, local option and prohibition, and lu
a solid phalanx lo move against tho enemy.
Ilia convention then look a recess until - p. m. Duritig
the Interval between the reassembling of the conven?
tion aud the receiving of the report of the committee,
Hiram Price, of Iowa, spokn of Prohibition as au Ulti?
mate result of the present agitation. Tins ha illustrated
by a careful study af the history of the country during
the last tlfty years.
Mr. Uunu, ot Maine, said the Republican party was
amply able to euforoe Prohibition. In Maine the peoele
nan no faith in tue Prohibitionists as a political party,
but trusted In the Republican party for the creation and
enforcement of the statutes governing tue sale aud
manufacture of liquor.
Kltjali a. Morse, of Massachusetts, would rather fall
with "antt-taloou" inscribed on tho Republican banner
than succeed without it.
General Conway, of New-York, said that the Bing?
hamton Convention bad spokeu with no uncertain
sound regarding anti sa.oon legislation, and had only
looked with anxiety at the probable outcome of the Na?
tional Convention.
Speeches were clso made by the Rev. Israel Latcrop,
of Minnesota, Gen*r?l Nettleton, of tba same State
Judge H, Tyler, of Indiana, and others holding to th*
general view that the practical hope of the temperance
people rested with the Republican party.

REPUBLICAN' CHANCES IN INDIANA.

Porter, of Indiaua, lo- lay visited tbe Ecouoiulto Com?
munity near this etty. He is preparing a history of In?
diana, and expects lo get va liable Information from
members of tho Lcouomlte Society. As to the political
outlook he said: " There la one thing I particularly
commend tu the Republicans of Indiana this year. The
party ls free 'rom personal dissensions and ls now firmly
united. On the other hand, there ls not the same good
feeling In the Democratic party. If I were to make an
estimate, of the result of our election, I would say that
the Republicans should carry Indiana by M..hm) ma?
jority. I think there ls no doubt that Senator Harrison
will be re-elected next winter. He will not have any
opposition as a candid its. There ba* been no particular
expression in Indiaua a* yet regarding a choice of the
Republicans tor the Presidency. It ls a bard matter to
predict who will be tho candidate, though Illume hus
many friends."
