Tbe Political Crisis in Italy
A thunderbolt trom a clear sky would not
be more unexpected than was tho news that
BUrnor CBISFI had boon beaten In tho Italian
Chamber of Deputies nnd had boon forced
t resign At tho recent general oleeUon
Blffnor CBIHPI won a victory for which tboro
was no precedent in tho nnnnls of countries
where tho ballot box Is shielded from official
pressure and where thoro Is n close approach
r t universal suffrage Tho avowed opposi
tion t his Ministry was beaten out of Bight
his professed supporters constituting about
Chamber Yet scarcely
fourfifths of tho now Chambr arely
bad the legislature assembled when tho
Prime Minister was driven from om co
L A single speech upset a Cabinet that
leme unshakable and what adds dra
matic Interest t tho incident tho speech
came from the mouth ot tho Prime Minister
Himself Of tho truth that prldo Booth before
destruction there has seldom been a more
striking demonstration The subject ot de
bate wan the Imposition of a new tax De
fending the measure Signor CBISPI said
that It was Indispensable In order t render
permanent the rescue of Italy from the ser
t Tlle position with regard to foreign pow
ers which she had held before his
ow accession t office This assertion
of superiority over all tbe great men of tho
last forty years who have given unity and
dignity t Italy was more than even tho
docile temper of CBTSPIB followers could
bear There was a roar of Indignation amid
which one of his ow colleagues left the
Ministerial bench and sought a seat in the
ranks of the Opposition This desertion led
t a Immediate disruption ot the forces of
the Government and a vote being ton
I amid great confusion the tax bill was rejected
jected by a considerable majority
I the face ot this catastrophe Blgnor
CBISFI could do nothing less than place his
resignation in the hands of King HDMBBBT
That the latter would accept It wa how
ever by no means a matter of course As a
matter of tat there slgnatlon was accepted
and no effort has been spared to find a new
Pie Minister able to command a working
majority In the Chamber The Kings willingness
to throw faithful servant will
ingness t tw over a fattal srnt wn
b generally attributed t the Influence of
the Queen who dotcoto the wife of the lat
President of the Council and would gladly
Cunc gly
see her debarred from admission t the
I amon
court At the hour when we write how
cur wt
ever It looks a if Signor CPI might
prove too strong for his enemies and
retrieve the blunder into which over
confidence betrayed him All attempts
t form new Cabinet have thus fn failed
and King HUMBERT has been frankly bold
by one of those whose assistance he requested
quested that the exclusion of the e
Premier would b Impracticable Even it
c men could b found t essay th task ot
government Signor CPI would soon I
rally his disordered forces and another i
Ministerial crisis might presently take
plaoe I Is true that the present Chamber
t of Deputies may b dissolved but that
hereto remedy would prove worse than the
disease should the objectionable statesman
return triumphant from the ballot box
r I the downfall of Signor CBISFI could b
I deemed Irreparable it would Justly b
considered an event of farreaching Import
Blnoe the retirement of BISUABOX the
i strongest supporter of the triple alliance
has been the late Premier of Italy If he also
I to be driven from public life a readjust
ment of international relations
Is
itratona rlatons quite pos
sible To Italian Radicals a friendly under I
standing with the French republic would I
be much more agreeable than tbo present I
ent league with Austria and Germany
The withdrawal of Italy however from
the triple alliance and an agreement
upon her part t coOperato with
France and Russia would revolution
ize the conditions of European warfare
The whole force of Austria would b needed
t t protect tbe Trentlno and Trieste and the
German empire would b left t contend sin
i gle handed with tho French and Russian
armies I Is evidently not the Interest of
the Vienna Government to be tim sole
Goverment t b ally
of Germany I King HCMBEBT Is forced to
t abandon tho German Emperor the Hap
burg Kaiser will follow suit even I he does I
not take time by tbe forelock It is
Dt te tmo forlok I I a sug
i gestive coincidence that scarcely la the over
throw ot Signor CBISFI known at Vienna
when the Archduke FBAKZ FERDINAND the I
t f heir t tho throno of Austria starts on a
r h visit t the Czar
i l The Vatican would have much to gain by
the permanent removal of Signor CPI
from tho stage With him no compromise
was possible On the other band the tat
i that ono who seemed Invincible could b so
suddenly and completely beaten will give
Immense encouragement t those friends of
i I the Papacy who have been urging LEO
XIII t permit Catholic electors to go t the
ballot box Had they been allowed to do
this at the lat general election thoy might
now b strong enough In conjunction with
i the rebels against Cnisn t construct a stable
ble Cabinet But who could have expected
that the coolest most farsighted and most
t selfpossessed of Italian statesmen would
t ommlt an act of suicidal folly 1
11 I The War of tho Barbers
We a sorry t obsene algae of an
estrangement between tho Italianspeaking
barbers and the GermanBreaking barbers
t of this town There ore It appears several
thousand Gormanspeaking barbers In Now
York while the number of Italianspeaking
I barbers does not exceed live hundred In
I all enumerations and classifications of bar
bers they are described with reference to
the language they u In speaking t cus
2 tomers there being no such Individual
I known as a silent and taciturn barber
kown sient toltur barbr They
all talk In some language
Just at the moment when the tripartite
alanc between Germany Italy and Aus
tria seemed likely t b unaltered by the
withdrawal from power of the Italian CBISPI
an adventurous and sunerzealous German
speaking barber In New York
I pklog barbr appropriately
named OABLER came forward with an in
dictment against his Italianspeaking asso
ciates accusing thom so far a can bo
learned of working for small wages dining
long hours and of other offences agrdnst
the ethics of tho craft Its profits emolu
ment and future grentncs
To this tho Italianspeaking barbers to the
number of SCO lu convention assembled at

The Fortifications Bill In the Senate
The Fortifications bill used t be one of
the latest of the bills
supply
ltt bis reported to
tho House but at the present session It
came from the committee ahead of all the
rest and was so moderate In amount and
unobjectionable I details that the House
disposed of it without dispute or delay long
before the holidays The Senate however
h made Important changes In It and In
doing this h needlessly crippled Impor
tant provisions of the original bill
For example desiring t add 475000 In
this bill t tho very large amount appro
priated last year for purchasing guns of I
prvat manufacturers the Senate has cut I
off 300000 from the amounts devoted by the
House to constructing the south wing of
the new Watervllet gun factory at West
Troy and providing it with machinery
I has clipped off 280000 from the appropri
ation for purchasing steel for heavy guns
and has struck out altogether the Item for
gun carriages of the disappearing type I
has also cut down from 1000000 t
S7lO the House appropriation for gun
and mortar batteries at New York Boston
Son Francisco Washington and Hampton
Beads although this Item provides em
placements for guns and mortars the first
of which a already coming forward and
will soon b ready for mounting The
ground of this reduction is that there f a
balance for the purpose unexpended
While frugality when properly exercised
in legislation is commendable to
leglaton I ommendale t postpone
or out down needed provisions for the na
tional defence is not economy but folly A
Congress which has added 40000000 a year
to the pension down small
t te pnion expenses pares dow smal
sums for submarine mines mortar bat
teries and other provisions for the protection
tion of the hundreds of millions of
ton te hund mWons property
now practically at an enemys mercy The
pending Fortifications bill does not supply a
twentieth part of what may b required for
the coast defences of the country Indeed
the estimate on which the bill Is based was
about double the appropriation which the
Senate recommends
To the Senates increase of tho Item for
experiments by the Fortifications Board from
100000 t 300000 there need b no objec
tion A new Item of 400000 for mortars
showed tho willingness of the Senate
wilngne Senat com
mittee t b liberal there as tho mortars
would bo made
b by private manufacturers
but the Senate altered and then
to BooDt nlered rejected
this amendment of its
Is committee although
i might have furnished some excuse for
cutting down the House appropriations It
also rejected Mr DOLPHB project of a new
gun factory on tho Pacific coast
The Senates prod addition t the
amount available for the purchase of
avalabld purbao guns
under the last Fortifications bill Is probably
Judicious Perhaps the House would have
made a similar Increase had not Its annual
bill been passed before tho bids for these
guns were opened early In the present
mont Tho proposals a may b remem
bered were for the manufacture of twenty
five 8Inch fifty 10Inch and twentyfive
12Inch rifles There were but two bidders
Tho South Boston Iron Works now of Ken
tucky proposed t furnish the 10 guns
with tho ammunition foran
specified
spelfe ammuniton an aggre
gate of 3023033 the Midvalo Steam Com
pany of Pennsylvania for a aggregate of
5859600 The maximum now proposed by
the Senate committee I still much below
the lower of these offers and accordingly to
make It available the Senate bill authorizes
PBOCTOR to call for fewer than
Secretary Poan t cl th 100
guns upon that allowance
I private enterprise can aid the existing
methods tor supplying heavy ordnance t
the forts and ship 8 much the better
Icnornment and private resources all com
bined could not do the work required a
Boon as It ought t b done But they should
work In harmony not I antagonism The
I House made a most moet provision for
carrying on the work of coast defence I
the Senate wishes t add more the House
should
may wisely agree but the Senate
needed work under systems
not sacrifice nee wrk 8ystms
long ago sanctioned t carry out its ow
purpose With mutual aid the provisions
whIch each most desires can b secured
and there is no ground for apprehending a
deadlock on this bill
A Claptrap Measure
Mr Boracn has Introduced into the Senate
at Albany a bill directing our Board of Education
In each of at
cation to set apart two rooms
east fifteen of the public school buildings
o evening resorts for the youth of the
city One of these rooms Is t b supplied
with a small library and current periodi
cals and the other with popular games
and gentle moa ot recreation Managers
and custodians are to b hired t take charge
of these resorts and their salaries are t b
added to tho school expenditures
Tho measure of course Is a mere piece of
claptrap and we are surprised that Senator
ftoRson whom we have regarded as a man
should bo willing to have
of common sense b w t haT
his name associated with It
schools maintained at great
The public sohol are maintane It
cost to the people for the purpose of giv
ing free Instruction to the children of the
city and they are planned built and ap
pointed for that object alone I some of
tom are to be turned Into places for
reading and amusement In the evening
others might b transformed into music halls
or theatres for the popular entertainment
after the school day Is I over I the young
people of the city could get the u of them
for nothing during the ball season they
could hold their dances in the schools and
thus obtain gentle means of recreation
without having t go t the expense ot hir
ing halls for the purpose The ward politi I
cal associations might meet there and also
the young mens debating societies the
working girls clubs the scientific socie
ties and the various organizations for the
moral and Intellectual benefit of the people
The homeless poor might b sheltered I
them at night Gymnasiums might be established
tablished in them for the physical culture
of young people in the evening Swimming
baths billiard rooms and bowling alleys
might b constructed I their basements
for the The variety of
same purpose Te uses
t which they could b put after school
hours is infinite and all ot them are a Justifiable
tillable a the use proposed In this bill
These buildings however cannot b prop
erly if they can b lawfully diverted t any
such uses They cannot b adapted t them
without > a large increase of expense for
maintenance and repairs t b added t the
millions already obtained from te people
by taxation for the support of the free instruction
struction of children They are arranged
and they are supported for children and not
for grown people and they belong t a sys
tem of public education which has its
limitations and does not comprehend the
whole range of possible moral and
Intellectual recreation and development T
speak of a minor and a practical matter the
seats In the rooms are made expressly for
youngsters under fifteen and not for older
people The buildings are not suitable a
S evening resorts for the youth of the town
I the buildings were suitable for evening
rr for the youth they would not b suit
able as day schools for boys and girls Tho
use of them for free lectures has shown this
and tho School tells us that consequently ap
plication has been made t permit the hold
Ing of these lectures I proper halls instead
Our school system also Is already too
much complicated by tho Introduction of de
vices of hobby riders and demagogueswhich
Increase its cost and confuse Its purpose
The wear and tear upon tbe buildings b I
cause of their occupation by the children
alone Involves great expense for repairs and
refurnishing What would it b they were
crowded at night also and with grown men
and If fifteen of the schools i
ad women I ffen schol are t
be turned Into evening and
b ture Int evenig reading rooms
resorts for popular amusement there is Just
a much reason for letting the people amuse
themselves in a of them
Moreover there is no excuse of necessity
for such a diversion of tho schools from their
true and lawful purpose Private munifi
cence has established free libraries and
reading rooms In different parts ot the tw
and the Free Circulating Library Is doing
Its work so well that It receives more and
more aid from private wealth Mr TIL
DES magnificent bequest for a free
library w Intended also for the mainte
nance of a system of libraries and reading
rooms accessible to the people of various
neighborhoods people do not want to up
set tbe schools and Increase their co t t get
places for reading and playing games The
claptrap suggestion did not come from them
but was made for sensational effect only
Senator BoEBcns absurd moonshine and
vicious bill has gone t the Committee on
Cities of the Senate and there let it remain
a nnworthy serious consideration
Tbe Germ of Diphtheria
A recent despatch from Mlddletown men
tions the prevalence of a unusually ma
lignant type of diphtheria in certain parts
of Connecticut In some towns whole fami
lies are said t have been decimated by tho
disease
In this city the number o deaths from
diphtheria during tho past month has aver
aged between fifteen and twenty per week
This Is rather low while the mortality
from measles at present epidemic in New
York has been greater Ot tbe three mala
dies most dreaded by mothers scarlet fever
measles and diphtheria the latter Is pre
eminently the most Insidious and the most
dangerous A of them a produced by
germs floating In the air and gaining access
t the body chiefly by Inhalation although
possibly also by being swallowed But
tho microbes ot diphtheria a remarkably
virulent so much so that at times tew
members ot an attacked family escape and
doctors and nurses also frequently succumb
t the malady I differs too from scar
let fever and measles In that It does not
confine its ravages so strictly to chil
dren but may feed upon tho whole popula
tion men women and children and even
poultry doves and calves are thought t
suffer from a similar disorder during Its
prevalence as an epidemic
When Inhaled the norms settle upon the
mucous membrane of the throat penetrate
the tUsuos and set up a local Inflammation
They enter the blood from here and also no
doubt through the delicate walls
troulh delct wall of the
lungs when Inhaled and are thus freely distributed

ably identical organism They are now
the subject of profound study In the lab

dote t the disease KOOH Is devoting much
attention to tho diphtheritic germ a are
also FBAKKXL BUUBIKO and KITABATO
working In KOCHS laboratory and You
Bcmrxanre and GBAT of Washington
The present direction ot the studies of
these experimenters seems t b In the tine
of preventive Inoculation or a species of
vaccination
Thus BABTScmNSKi having observed that
in patients already I

lead to recovery experimented upon four
teen dlphtherltlo eases by Inoculating them
with erysipelas The result was tho saving
o twelve lives for all of the other members
ot tho same families who also had diphtheria
but wore not Inoculated died I
FRAENKKII has discovered an albuminous
substance which Introduced into guinea pigs
Infected with diphtheria by hypodermic In
jection renders them Immune although It
alls t produce that effect when the animals
receive the infection In tho ordinary way
through the mucous membranes
BanniNG is tho discoverer ot a method of
making tho serum of tho blood of Infected
animals bactericidal by the Introduction of
inorganic chemical substance and has
proven not only that those lower animals

Mr JULIA HAWTHOBXE avers In o com
munication addressed to tho TicenliM Century
that a community called the Oneida was
formed upon the doctrines of KOUBIER and
established itself In these United States
ThIs Is a rather surprising Inaccuracy on the
part of an experienced literary man like Mr I
HAWTHOIXK n o ought t be aware tbat the
doctrines of Fouairn dlfftrntterly from those
of the Oneida people FOURIIR proceeds upon
a very profound and comprehensive analysis
Ot tbe affections of tbe human soul and
through this analysis his proposed social organ
ization Is devised The great feature of It Is at
true the Industry Euoh of the 1810 members
who form together a oomtilategaiaiit ot human
character will find precisely those Imlnttrlft
occupations which will charm and delight
them just as an Impassioned sherman I finds
charm and delight In the laborious occupation
of fishing But the Oneida community was
not ot this sort lie chief doctrine was
wst was called complex Barriaga an all

any wife ot his own and DO woman any hue

Mr Greene ot NorwIohChalrman of the Com
mittee on Canvass and a member of the Joint
Conference Committee objected to the word
late In the resolution Messrs Rot of Wa
terbury and Healy of Windsor Locks Dam
objected to striking out the word as 1 would

by the Democratic members of the committee
from the Senate their objection was withdrawn
and the striking out of the word late was
Insisted on The amended resolution wes
transmitted to the Senate and the House took

Senator Morce who drew the resolution and
who did not oppose the chance claiming that
It wa a mere verbal chance and technicality

WAlmNGTl Feb f5Th passage by both
Homes of the bill aiprorrlatlnK 200000 for
the enlargement of the military post nt Plaits
butch may possibly rrovo a more Important
measure than some even of its support
have supponod
Such a bill usually has little chance ot belnff
passed In th abort session unless by
trace of committees and of Conems It can be
interpolated In the Army Appropriation or
other control supply bill to which I bears
some relation This particular measure bad
fortunately been successful In the Houso at
he last session and after one check In the
Senate this winter I was rushud through by
unanimous consent
Accordingly In place of a one eomnany sta
tion at Plattsburah Barracks there will be In
due time a very much lamer post for tbe re
don of Lake Chnmilnln and the northern
Frontier The garrison now consists of Com
pany U Sixth Infantry but with the enlarge
ment I IB likely to Include troops of the other
arms It Is also nfnrottlve that tbe House
Military Committee has recently reported a bill
for the establishment of a new cavalry and
artillery post nt Bwanton Junction Just east ot
Lake Champlain In northern Vermont That
these measures are part of I general system
which has lately been drawn up tor the protection
tection of the northern frontier may be
Indeed from this passage of a report made by
Gen Schofleld to the Secretary of War
As a preparation for b executIon of the harmon
ftni political and military policy In the tnt of any
futore neceSsity it is nenealary to maintala at proper
points n the northern m r the neolat cx troops of

The importance ef the Champlain defences
has been attested by at least three war In
fact the region Illustrate the truth that the
lines ot strategic operation a repeated gen
eration after generation and often under
widely different circumstances and In spite of
chances In the art of war A large part of the
hostilities from 1754 to 1763 commonly known
in this country a the French and Indlon war
took place around Lake Champlain aid Lake
George There occurred the defeat of Williams
I 1765 quickly followed by the repulse of Dar
n Dlesunu There two years later Dleskans
successor Montcalm gained victories captor
fag Fort William Henry on Lake Gorge
There In 1858 Montcalm defeated the English
at Tlconderoga which Amherst captured the
following ea
In the war of the Devolution Lake Cham
plain was at one mad a seen ot hostilities
and the capture of Fort Tloonderoga by Kthan
Allen was effected only three week after
the battle at Lexington Bnrgoynes famous
campaign of 1777 based on taking possession
of Lake Champlain and then of the valley of
the Hudson which ended In disaster at Sara
toga Is a familiar Illustration of the same tat
In the war of 1812 resort was promptly mal
to this wellfought region Gen Wade Hamp
ton who commanded the Army of the North In
the campaign of 1813 had his headquarters on
Lake Champlain while Gen Wilkinson
Lae wblo Goo cam
paigning there was defeated by tbe British at
L Colle after having occupied Pittsburgh
At thin latter polo while Blr George Prevost
with a strong army from Canada was
pressing the American troops under Ma
comb Commodore Maodonongh gained
his famous naval victory over the
British squadron on Lake Champlain
which put an end to the Invasion of tbe Goy
ernorGeneral and compelled bis retreat In
short experience shows that in awnrwher
Canada Is concerned the Lake Champlain lie
is likely to bo actlveoperatlons and I In
perhaps worth remembering that even during
the Fenian attempt which followed the civil
war 8t Albans In Vermont on the eastern side
played an Important part
In his annual report Gen Schofleld
Ils anual rpr 8cbollld an
nounced tbat it II I proposed t maintain at
appropriate lnt which have been carefully
selected suitable garrisons of regular
Iloctod eutable arlsons rllar troops
of all arms t on the northern frontier and that
the wisdom ot providing without unneces
sary delay for the additional accommodations
required for these permanent garrisons will
I Is believed b manifest to all Secretary
Proctor In approving the scheme says tbat
without such preparations the lakes w b
defenceless and that proper preparations
ad propr prparatons a
not measures of provocation but rather of prevention
vention and for the continued preservation of
peace
Lake Champlain It must be noted is in
cluded In the naval restrictions imposed by
the BnshBngot treaty of 1817 and on I neither
Great Britain nor the United States can law
fully maintain more than one vessel not ex
ceeding 100 tons burden and armed with an
18pound cannon But there U no limit t
land force for defence
For this latter purpose attention would nat
ural be directed frt to Fort Montgomery at
Rouses Point Of this work

soned the Fortifications Board noted that It
was sufficient with the addition of a few 8
Inch rifles to secure Lake Champlain from a
Inroad and It proposed accordingly four I
Inoh guns and eight 10Inch mortars Such guns
and mortars can easily be supplied But In addition
dition comes the plan of points of concentra
