that the most ordinary (vnimon-sense would

CrltsPlarfl by gf>P??JMBtJ Is often of esseir.lal ad
vantaite to the majority, enabling It to realize
and -.'iiard against errors which had been over
Iooke?l. Hut there are times when patriotic duty
imperatively demands action without one hour
of needless delay. Thi ? the responsible ma?
jority must be trusted, under the pressure of
Itrlct personal accountability, to discharge Its
duty to thr? country according to its convi.-ions,
and with what ability and caro it can. The ef?
fort to pick flaws and poke holes nnd take time
for the manufacture of party capital then be?
comes hostile to the public welfare and honor.
When President Cleveland appealed to Congress
to make provision for borrowlue- in order to pro?
tect the Treasury, after his Venezuela perform
auce had caused alarm, a Republican Howe
gave up Its Christmas vacation, cut off entirely
the debate for which the errors of the Adminis?
tration afforded so fruitful ard tempting an op
porrunity, and put through between two ?lays,
so to speak, a measure to empower the Admin
tetratlon to borrow, an it had proposed, though
In Rcpubl'.ran belief the right remedy ?anal to
Increase the revenue. Re the o ?asion what It
may, a patriotic party is never caught sa.riiicing
the Nation's welfare or prosperity for the aake
of making capital for itself, or prolonging a fac
tU>us opposition to those charged with respon?
The situation is not now one of emergency,
only because- there ha? been sure faith that Dem?
ocrats would not lie no unpatriotic nnd suicidal
as needlessly to delay the raising; of revenu.'.
Should It begin to appear probable that tho
revenue bill would be indefinitely delayed, for
tin* sake of continuing a petty criticism of Its
details, and prevenni)}; a gpa?sdj revival of busi?
ness, there might with reason be expected seri?
ous apprehension. Democratic business men
arc perfectly aware of this, and the Democratic
Senators who represent Rub.Mantial Interests are

false assenions that there has been no Improve?

observe tho facts as set forth by a shrewd and
Impartial cogruspoaoVnt in the field. Down to
last Friday night ihe Greek lines on the border
MSl of M'louna Pass wore so'tire. The ??reeks
were not merely holding their own. They were
pushing th?* Turks back. Two days more would
have given them Mencxo, and then I'.lassona
would have been at their mercy, and the Turk?
ish Army would bare been in a bad trap. But
then, without apparent rhyme Of reason, an
orda came from headquarters for them to re?
treat, and to abandon to tlie Turks all that they
had won and held so brSTely and at such cost.
Tims ihe whole eastern frontier waa opened for
tbe Turks. Nor was that all. T!ie Creeks 11:1
der the gallant Smolensk! were still holding Re?
ren! Par-?; and other points wesl of Milouna
Pass, from which they could threaten, Bttack
and perbapa capture Elassona. They were ?ctu
ally advancing and driving the Turk* before
them when orders came fn m the Crown Prince
himself for them to halt and maintain a passlre
attitude, and then to retreat an 1 abandon tlie
whole western from ?.t. in tbe battles around
Mat! similar blunders or crimes wen com?
mltted. <~mo prominent Greek offlcor, seeing
some Tnrkfl occupying tbe place toward which
he was marching, turned back and fled without
tiring a shot. Another, whose position was at?
tacked by the Turks, wanted to defend it, and
COUld have done so BUCCOtsfully had be received
the reinforcements fr,r which be asked, and
which might readily have been gupplled. Bui
they were not gupplled, nnd he was ordered lo
retire. Finally, instead ?f effecting a deliberate
and orderly retreat to Pharaalos, Ihe command?
ing officer? eeemed to try almost t?> turn it into
a hopeless stampede. There is, moreover, apart
from these operations, the unexplained neglect
of the Greek heel to paralyse the Turkish Army
by g di seem upon Balonlca, which there is every
reason to bellere i? might bare done a week ago
will) ease.
The last word has not been gpoken on the???
matters. Hut whatever It may be. it will prob?
ably not alter tii" gaped of tbe facts as above
pri Bented, nor weaken In any degree the lii
?lietment which has been made of the Crown
Prince's Staff, if not of the Crown Prinee him?
self. Victory was within reach, and it was de?
liberately sacrificed. Whether this was done
Intentionally, or through mere Ineptitude, does
not yet appear, and does not greatly matter, ex?
cept so far as dealing with tlit? culprits is con?
cerned. The mischief has bet ? done, and there
is little hop?? of undoing it. The brave and ef
feetive stand made at Velestino shows that the
Creek Army is not destroyed, nor even demoral?
ized, and that It can still fight and win victories
when properly led. But the best lender In the
world might well shrink from the task of trying
to regain the ground which has been lost during
tbe last week through ?lie folly or worse of on
worthy command? rs.
Of a truth, gome greater power than tne groat
Powers has "mocked the counsel <>f the wise
and the valor of the braTe." Por month.?? tbe
statesmen of Europe bare been studying and
striving to keep the peace, ami the vast nrnia
ments of War Lords have threatened compulsi?n
and punishments unutterable to any who gbould
break it. <>r so, nt any ra;??, they bare appeared
to do. In sp,te tif ail. the peace is broken, tia
grantly and tremendously, and the belligerent?
have little fmr and little MUM for fear of the
militant wrath of the great Powers. It BUg
gesta u comment, not altogether creditable, noon
the might and ?lignity of nations. If the a ill and
the puissance of Kurope's six great Powers In
held thus lightly by two minor States, which ex?
ist only on sufferance of Umm Powers, what
vanity of vanities Is the divinity that doth ledge
a king:
Nor is that the sole failure of the great
Powers. Their words have been proved as idle
as their works ar?? inefficient "The Concert
meang peace and Justice," they proclaimed. Yet
gross Injustice has prevailed and dm s ???;, I,
and Avar has come; not In spite of, but as the
desrael-sighted ohaenrera "recognise, rather ba>
causa of that very Conoert "Compulsion of
Turkey, or ? hint of Avar." they earne-ily pro?
tested, "would mean Immediate nml wholesale
"massacres of Christian:? throughout that yMi.
"?i.re." But It Is not so. There were massa.res
Just before the war bagni U, Cut there have been
none sinee, nor are any feared. The embassies
ask uo special guardships In the GoMen Hon.
no addeil companies of marinen Jn Pera. The
whole grim prophecy has failed.
The situation would be comb' were It not bo
trngle. It would be comi?? In the utter dlsiom- 1
liture of tho great Powers, the falseness of their
prophecleR, the failure of their labors, the flout- i
Ing of their will. It Is tragle in the unspeakable !
horrors of actual war, for which the great
Powers are accountable; In the disheartening ex?
posure of their helplessness; and In, not least of
all, the humiliating demonstration of "with how
little wisdom the world is governed!" For Ihe
only wise government ? right government, and
tho great Powers' dealing with this Mastern
Question have not been right. For fifty years
they have been marked with lelfllbBega, greed,
cunning, temporizing, with all thlnrrs save
straightforward, manly righteousness. And DOW
humanity must bear the heavy penalty.
The Stute of Kentucky, and indeed the whole
country, mr.y well be congratulatoli on the end
; Ing of the Senatorial contest at Frankfurt, which
had boon prolongi-d to a wearisome length ami
? had been marked with more than ?me atrocious
; scandal. Almost any emling of It would have
been a relief to tho public, but that which was
yesterday effected seems to be particularly Hit?
, iafactory. The will of the majority <>f the peo

One provision <>f the ponding Tariff I'll
changes not only the present law, and th" Mc?
Kinley act. but the established policy of the
(???veniment. It takes books which bave been
published more than twenty years ou: uf tbe
free list and puts a dii'y of 28 per ceni npon
them, if the decision of the committee and the
actinn of the House were based npon any strong
representation of the Impori.ince of thli emirs,?.
thai fa 't has not appeared. II certainly a is
nut supposed that the free entry of old books
had caused so much discontent as ??> convince

it was natural, therefore, thai the m ? depart?

soon as ?r ><..???- announced. Tbeir attitude re
mains the same, all the obvious argumenta be
ing on thi Ir side, and t." d< fence of the proposed

In ?uch ? case the flrst asaumption is thai the
eons id ration of revenue has prevailed; bui In
this instance I ial hypothesis ?? scarcely tenable.

twenty year? old are ?? ? ?>??? ?t.-.? to produce; for
they are classed with engravings, prints, charts,
etc., which have been In print more than twenty
years, scientific i""iks and some other publica?
tions. Bui this whole class is estimated lo yi- Id
a revenue, based <?? the Importation? In 1806, of
only aboul $1 '-"-'<??''. of which bo? Its presumably
would noi produce tbe major part. The pr ?
posed duty ?if L'?". pn? cent '>n books printed ex
cluslvely In a foreign Language Is expected to
bring considerably more than this Into the Tn ta
ury aboul $211,000. Bui assuredly both these
items together canno! be deemed of large i'"i
portane? as revenue producers, and there seems
tn be no sufficient reas,.? for transferring them
to the dutiable list Tue free list, where they
have long been, is where tbey oughl to remain,
and we hope the Senate will keep them there.

Another Interesting object-lesson In transat
lantie commerce comes to hand. A British
I ('anadian company Is platinine, to establish ft
new lin?? of swift steamers, plying between Mil
ford Haven, in Wales, and Middle Milford. Nova
Sioiin. The distance between those ports If
niueh less than between Liverpool or Southamp?
ton and New-York, ami It is recfcOMd that ves
sels could Irarerse it In four and a liaif days,
perhaps less With swift railroad trains from

I capitula would thus be materially shortened.

j in?? of success, Bul upon fUCb patronage alone
Its projectors have no notion of depending.
Co'.einmeiii patronage If what they seek, not
only from Civat Britain and Canada, but from
? the United States as well. They rckon upon
recelring from the British Postal Berriof not

aries, and from the Canadian Coverninent ft
8 ibsldy of 1350,000 a year. Nor is this sum of
$725,000 all. They count upon a material addi?
tion t?> it from tlie United states Government,
for carrying Its mails to Europe. Of this they
feel insured, because II Is ?!)?* established cus?

licans snnouncsd that there was not th" faint?

and the zeal with which they worked until the

They had telegrams announcing that their ab?

th"y were afraid of accidents. They were told
that 1.1.?berth and two others hail been In con
Cerence srlth Governor Bradley and Mr. Deboe,
and had Anally declared thanaselvsg In line.
When the last train was in the Republican
leaders announced that all of the sevnty-one
Republicans wre on hand, that Deboe would be
absent, and that he waa sure to be elected by
seventy-one votes. It looked that way to the
nearly despairing Blackburn Democrat?? and to
the gold ??:?', ? ruts. Not only was gsCatSg here,
but State rhairman BobertS had come back ar.d
was working hard to keep all in line.
All the Republicans In the Senate ex, -r,t De?

eighty-one present, and ordere.] the rollcall for

(.?old Democrats voted for Martin with few ex?
ceptions. Th-re wen? 185 present, and six'y
eight would elect. There was applause trhen
Llebertk voted for tho nominee. Nonnsn also
voted for Deboe. When the sixty-eighth vote
was t?a-s?eil th? Chair could not quell the wild
cheers. The Blackburn men asked for a esll of
tho absentees!, and they voted solidly for their
man. Henry Martin voted aleo. The ballot
stood: Deboe, 71; Blackburn. BO; Martin. 13;
Stone. 1.
Lykins was not present, nor was Qrllvle
Governor Bradley was present. The ? \\,\ ec->n*
that followed could not be ouieted. There "as
no chance to ask the victor to come forward to
make a speech. The cheering and demonstra?
