Prospects of the maintenance of pence lu

yesterday of the treaty of commerce between
Germany and . Russia. Time, the treaty has
yet to be ratified by the Reichstag at Berlin.

of amity between foreign nntlniis, an axiom
which Ibo Berlin Oovernmeni lind lu view when
it negotiated Ural lit /."llvereln with tha South?

the circumstances, the luitlilealloii Just niven
hy Russia that it will abrogate its commercial
agreement with france unless the latter ab*
stains from putting Into effect Um prohibitive
duties on Muscovite grain, demanded by tho
overwhelming Protectionist majority In the
Chamber of Deputies at Paris, must be regard?
ed as imperilling the defensive treaty of sJUance
alleged to exist between Prance nnd Russia.
The outrageous delny on the Speedway still

Mere in dire distress. Yesterday twenty-three
men woe al work on the new road. It ls clear
that Tammany Intends to z'\\<- employment to

Will iii.' people of this cii.v hear this'.- Will
they tamely submit, while the public ninney
appropriated in haste to give work lo Ihe
needy is ti'iiied into a corruption fund to buy
voles for Tammany? An end should be put to
this farce al once. Fenton, the political turn?
coat and alleged labor "expert." should be sent
adrift; Ihe work should lie started In earnest,
and unemployed workmen should lie hired right
away, whether they wen- the Wigwam collar
or not. _
The conviction of two faithless election In?
spectors is creditable lo thc District Attorney's
office and encouraging lo all honest citizens.
To Mr. Wcllmnu, in pani, ular, who bas done
most uf Hie work of prosecution, public grat?
itude and conunenilation are clearly due. He
has horne an honorable part in many sensa?
tional trials within Ute last few years, bul we
d< ui'i if h.- has ever served die c.>111111u11jt v more
substantially than during Ihe list week. There
are scores of Indictments for similar offences
still lo be Hied, and ii is not expected thal con?
victions can be obtained in all of tln'sr- case*,
inn iii- people hove reason lo rejoice in Ihe
belief thal none of them will fail for lack ..f
skill and seal on the part >>( Mr. Wellman.
ll has seemed to many (hal the long delay in
bringing ihesc offenders lo trial was unneces
shiv, rim! therefor!.numble, since some pan
of thc raine of punlshmeni i- h><t when it is
nol prompt. Hui doubtless tho labor of prepa?
ration was considerable, and there is no present
ndvnntage in complaining of a process which ls
finally producing excellent results.
These convictions ore of great value lo the
community, for thc reason thal ihey convey lo
Ihe willing instruments of fraud at elect lona
their find sharp warning thal their vocation
iv a dangerous one. it is deplorable that tim
inure Important rascals whose work these
subordinates did to order have not been legally
Identified with the crimes committed f>>r their
benefit, bul it is fer better thal Ihey should
learn a useful leason from |be fate of others
than none al all. We are not sanguine enough
to suppose that their moral sense will he stim
ula ted to such on extent as lo make them con
scions of tie- real nature and enormity of Ihe
crime of swindling rolers. Must of tin m. it ls
fair to assume, have passed beyond the poa
sihility of such a regeneration. Mut it will be
an immense sendee to the public If they cnn
be terrified Into acknowledging among them
selves, against their will, thin election frauds
have become unsafe In New-York. And even
if no such salutary effeel can be produced upon
their minds, as alistiiiLniisli.il from their con
sciences, it is extremely desirable thal a sample
of justice should be pul on public exhibition
to frighten Ihe horde of smaller knaves upon
whom Ihey depend for Ihe execution of Heir
purposes, nnd who have hitherto Im-c.i glad In
i.e hired cheaply
Tliis consideration makes it extremely Impor?
tant that mani more convictions slioiilil h.- .?!?
fained, lt will not do lo be merciful ni this
point to tie- Indicted. Ii is ilia.intimity lhat
needs linley and deliverance from lue rorntpi
despotism which has long been opcrntlllg
through such agents as th.se Two convictions
are well worth having bul they ore n >t nearly
enough. The Impression which they lia ve ere
nted will fade away loo soon. The value of Ihe
pranecutlon will Increase in geometrical milo
with every penalty Imposed. Ii ls Ihe emin
lathe effect of numerous rondemnntionn thal
tho public leds for its protection In Ibe righi
of franchise and th.- possession ..f free Instllti
lions. We dale sa> thal many of these scon s
of offenders are only dimly aware that they
have don.- anything deserving of punishment.
If th" leaders wilone orders Ihey hore been
brought up to obey have lost the sense <,f righi
ami wrong iii politics and government, their
own capacity to sci- ihe difference is likely to
I..- very feeble. They probably think that a
great fuss is being made about ii small matter.
Hut certainly, if this ls so. lt is an imperative
duty to leach them their mistake.
Hr. Nansen ami his fellow-voyagers have dow
I.n long beyond sight and "reach of their fel?
low-men. Tiny have entered the unknown.
Where and how Ihey are fating tire mailers
only of speculation, and of speculation largely
futile. Vet every idle Milo V.'llUi'S tile extension
of s.-i<-uiItia- knowledge, or who honors manly
daring, must wish lo follow them in thought
and sympathy. There are. moreover, % few
who have ventured upon the margins Of that
mysterious realm, and who ire thus tined lo
form so. partial estlmnte >.f th. ir probable
progress. Among Iheae none, perhaps, is en?
titled to more consideration than Captain Win
gins, the plucky English Bekman who lias re?
opened the old Hade route thi'oiiL'h the Kara
s.a. and has actually established regular ship
ping relations between Ureal Britain nnd Ihe
North Silurian Toast. No om- knows those
waters an well SS he, .'ind no speculation upon
ile- royage of ile- Pram is to be regarded with
moie s.rioiN attention than his.
Writ Im: from Yeniseisk, Whither he last sum
mer conducted his own merchant fleet, Captain
Wiggins discusses in this month's "Geograph?
ical Journal" tin- conditions I?r. Nansen prob
ably encountered after passing Poll Dickson,
and in nnd niter rounding Cane Chelyuskin.
Ile must have found tin- drift lc,, wry near the
shore, fm- Captain Wiggins says it was closet
down limn li*- had ever before seen it nf thnt
season. Ile must, however, Dave rounded the
cape, for had h.- noi, hut had been forced back
to Tort Dickson, word would surely have been
received from him long before this. Captain
Wiggins advised liim lo steer northward from
Cape Chelyuskin, ami tn ivokj Nordeusklolil
Sea nml the fhtngcrous Newsiiierian archi?
pelago, and ibis, the Captain thinks, he lins
probably done, if be baa been able. If so, he
has gone poleward, borne hy Hie strong cur?
rents from Hie Karl Sea mid the great Siberian
rivers. "'Hy this route,*1 says Contain Wig?
gins. " I hgve every faith that tin- expedition
will reach a high latitude, discover new hinds,
ind perhaps closely approach the vicinity of the
POM itsadf.'" ' I
If, on the other limul, on rounding the cape
the Fram was driven eastward hy the park lee
the outlook ls less cheering. If the vessel got
much beyond the 110th meridian, in Nordensk
lold Seo, It would be in danger from the lhal
low water nnd strong, erratic currents of Um
New-Hiberinn Islands. liven then Um expedition
would not necessarily como to grief. At worst
It would probably only have to spend the Winter
among those desolate Islands, or in the Lena
Delta; in which cane we may hear hom it be?
fore long. But such delay WOUld be vexatious,
and would really mean the loss of fl ye.'ir. since
when ihey set out from the Lena next summer
they would be practically no nearer tl.b
Jeets of their quest thnn winn they peened
Yugonkl Strait last summer. Ur. Bunge, of Um
Russian Navy, who has just returned from a
live years' residence on Um New-Siberian
Islands, describes thar entire region as ,,i.f
unspeakable desolation, and one by all means
to be avoided bf Voyagers poleward bound.
The sum of Captain Wigging's speculations is.
however, that the expedition probably went
straight northward from the cope; bul that, in
either eas.-, it is safe and sound. There K
however, little reason lo expert any actual news
of Its doings until we beor ?>f its safe return by
way of th,. North Pole, or by way nf retreat
through tin' Korata Bernita seas, ibo Kara Bea
or the Siberian coast,

A remarkable dispatch from Constantinople
is published In " l.<- Temps," the beni inf..ri.I

menace is a slnrtllng one, especially winni a

The Minister's course, if ii be correctly re?
ported, is particularly eccentric, because Ihe Ad
ministration which be represents has gum' om
Of its way lo befriend the " unspeakable Tink "
nnd tn Justify persecution of Armenians who
are niiMirali/.ed Americans. This fa.-t has
sacaped public observation because there has
been sn much that ls Quixotic and reactionary
In the diplomacy of the last year; but the fol
lowing citntl'iii fmni the President's message of
December, 1893, shows that thc AdmlnUtrn
tlon, far from being in the mood for a naval
d fl mons t rat lon of Ironclads against Syria, has
j already taken up tba cudgell In defence of the
Turkey complain! that lier Armenian Subjects ob*
j tain citizenship la thin country, not to Identify
i them* dves In pood faith with our people, hut with
1 the Intention of returning to the land of their hirth
and tier.- engnajlng In sedition. This complaint is
I not wholly without foundation, a journal published
j in thi* country tn the Armenian laaguugs openly
counsels its readers to ann. organise and partici?
pate in movements for th.- subversion of Turkish
authority In the Asiatic province-". The nt toman
Oovernmeni Ihf< announced its intention to exp?l
from Its dominions Armenians who have Obtained
naturalisation la tbs United .State* since im*s. The
righi to expel any or ell ile sens ol aliens is an
attribute of "mreretenty. It ls s right asserted,
and to a limited extent enforced, by the United
siat.s, uiih tha sanction of the highest court.
ri. being no naturalisation treaty between the
United stat.s end Turkey, .mr Minister al Constan?
tinople has been Instructed that, while rerotrnl7.itiur
the righi i.r thal Oovernmeni to enforce its de?
clared policy againsl naturalised Armenlana he is
expected lo protect them from unnecessary harsh?
ness of treatment
Thc rorie, us our readers are undoubtedly
aware, has I.n conniving at nnd openly en?
couraging the persecution ?>f Christiana In Asia
.Minor nnd acts of mob violence against mis?
sionary stations and schools. A missionary coi
lege lins been burned, ami there have been
many murders, robberies and outrages. The
Porte, having decreed the expulsion <>f nil Ar?
menians who ar.- naturalised American citizens,
has lu "ii rigorously enforcing its barbarous pol?
icy. American missionaries naturally looked
for measures of protection from the Govern
ment nt Washington; bul when they asked for
bread Ihey received n stone. The President
practically rcftued tn intervene on behalf nf
these |iei'seontiii un t urn liz -<l Americana, and

A. I?. The-'- decretals purported to have been
compiled by Isidore of s.-\ til.- in the seventh
century, and consisted of alleged letters written
by various early Popes in which Um Papal
claims were amply recognised. Thees forgeries
were generally accepted by the Western Church,
ami were s potent factor in establishing the
power of the papacy. Rut they were utterly
discredited in thc Baot, and In bet did much
lo widen tho brench already existing between
the two Churches,
sime then lhere have been numerous attempts
io compose this old quarrel, bul Ihey have
all h. en unsuccessful, inlier difference! than

ih.-ni I- the so-called "Wloque" clause in the
i r. i I. Thc Western Church declares thal the
Moly lihosl proceeds "from Ihe father ami
the Bon." while the [.'astern Church says tint
Ile proceeds from Hie Pether only, lt is nd
mit ted by roosl church historians that tim
"iilioi|iie" clause eropl Into Ihe Western Creed
through an inadvertence, n circumstance which
has only Intensified the opposition of tin- fast
em Church to ii. li is. Indeed, probable thal
if th.- Papal claims were entirely eliminated
from the controversy this one thing would keep
ihe two churches apart.
In view of all these facts it is hard to see
how the coming Encyclical of the Pope cnn con?
tribute much toward bealing Hie long standing
breach between Ibo Iwo Churches, unless he
should ililli all Hie points at issue, which is
not wubin the bounds of possibility, pot it ls
certain that Hie Orthodox Creek Church is ns

that order has benn restored In Sicily, and that
the pacification of the Island ls complete, the
French Government has some ""canon to feel un?
easy at the fact thnt troops are still heine,
dispatched to Palermo ami other points of th?
Island. At the present moment there ls an army
of more thnn flO.OOfl men concentrated In Sicily,
while tim italian fleet has been assembled at
Messina. As the African coast ls only a few
hours' distance by steam. It ls feared at Paris
that Crlspl may at length give satisfaction tc
popular sentiment in Italy by making the long
projected descent on Tripoli, whick would en?
hance the prestige of the monarchy among thc
people and divert the attention of the latter
from the consideration of their own miseries and
difficulties. The nctlon of Signor Crlspl In pro

of avoiding Indiscreet Inquiries, ls calculated to
confirm rather thnn dispel these apprehensions
