The South la patient, but H therelsalimlttoltapatienoo. It draws the H line at Groveb CiiEVEiiAiTD. H Declined with Thanks. H The letter In which the Hon. Cornelius H K. Bliss records his refusal to listen to m the flattering proposal which tho Kepubll- can party of New York was preparing to H make to him cannot be read without pain by HI the faithful. It la a very neat and urbano H document, and distributes taffy with a grace HI which shows that Its author was born with HJ a sugar spoon in his mouth and hits talents HJ that would make him as successful in a HJ diplomatic career as ho Is In business. HI "That they tho Bepubllcans deem mo HJ worthy to be a. candldato for so exalted an HJ office," says Mr. Bliss, "and at a time when HJ It seems probable that tho Republican cau- HJ dldato would be elected, is itsolf an honor HJ ever to be held In proud and grateful ro- HJ membrance." Nothing could bo more polito HJ than Mr. Bliss's determination to insist HJ upon the value ot tho honor which ho waves HJ away. But when a man has made up his HJ mind to go abroad, what is tho use ot trying HJ to tempt hi m with oOlco? HJ Bo Mr. Bliss resolutely rejects tho cbauce HJ to be tho Republican candidate for Governor, HJ to be tho next Governor If his rating of tho HJ probabilities Is correct. Ills sclf-abnogatlon HJ Is heroic, but it is a littlo embarrassing to HJ the Bepubllcans. A more acceptable candl- HJ date they could not And. lie commands the HJ oonfidenoe ot the world of business. Dim HJ reputation for sagacity and good judgment HJ Is ot the highest, his exporienco In business HJ . and politics Is large, and whllo tho Union HJ Leatrue Club would be solidly In his favor, HJ the Bepubllcans below Fout toonth sti eet do HJ not consider him too good for human na- HJ tures daily food. Uo would bo specially HJ serviceable, because he Is very slnowy with H the sinews of war, and his voto in this town HI would be sizable. But ho has set his heart HJ upon going to Europo, and so this bright HJ dream of the New York Republicans la over. HJ It Is not merely the impossibility of muk- HJ Ing Mr. Bliss their candidate, howover, that HI drapes New York Republicanism In an Inky HJ cloak. His refusal deepens tho uneasy suspl- HJ don that tho New Yprk Republicans may have HJ to offer special lnducomonts to get a oandi- HJ date. The Republican statesmen of New HJ Yorkseom to be shy all of a sudden. Mix HJ DEPEwand Mr. Bliss are to tako refugo In HJ Europe. Mr. Fassett, Mr. AVadswobtu, HJ Mr. Van Cott, Mr. John H. Starim, Mr. HJ Awdrew D. White, and the other men for HJ whom boomlets have boon started may have HJ to seek the same means of escape when the HJ trail gets hot. It la passing queerthat, If the HJ Bepubllcan prospect in this State Is as rosy as HJ the Bepubllcans ploture It, thero should bo so HJ many hitches In tho preliminary work of HJ hunting up a candldato. If a Republican HJ should be elocted as Governor of Now York HJ next fall, he would become a landmark in HJ national politics, and great poRsiblllties and HJ axpectatlons would luxuriate in him. Why, HJ then, Is there no rush for the honor of the HJ nomination? Why aro Republican statos- HJ men so willing to pass tho honor to some- HJ body else ? HJ What will happen it this attack ot mod- HJ ety continues to bo virulent? Will the HJ Hon. Thomas Collier Platt, hopeless ot HJ persuading anybody elso to tako thonomlna- HJ tlon, display his public spirit and patriotism HJ by taking It himself ? Mr. Flatt Is vory HJ amiable about holplngother people to offlco. HJ Can he not bo Induced to become a candl- HJ date for Governor and glvo his admiring HJ fellow citizens an opportunity to show tliolr HJ aagernees to vote for him ? Does tho Hon. HJ James J. Belden second this nomination ? HJ Tne Eagle and the Rooster. HJ Under the provisions ot the new election HJ Uw whloh the Cleveland Democratic Con- HJ Tentlon commended the Ohio Legislature HJ (or passing, and under which it declared tiiat HJ "every voter In Ohio can cast his ballot, In HJ secret, as ho dcslros," an essential f oaturo ot HJ the ballots In that State this year Is ad is- HJ tlngulsblng emblem, to be selected by each HJ party nominating candidates. HJ At the Convention in Columbus which put HJ up William MoKint,et for Governor, the HJ Bepubllcans solected the American eagle, HJ the proud bird of freedom, as the symbol ot HJ their party. Recognized for oenturles as HJ tho emblem ot despotlo power und autlior- HJ Ity. tho eagle was In the days ot the Roman HJ republlo the standard ot tho legions which HJ earned triumph on a thousand battlollolds. HJ Popular In Germany, Austria, and Poland, HJ It perpetuated In France the military glories HJ of the Napoleonlo era, and In each of the HJ countries named, and In Russia besides, HJ It Is tho accredited and accepted na- HJ tlonal bird on tho coat-nf-arnm and HJ tho standards. Indeed, Kngland is the HJ only ono of tho great F.uropeiu power HJ which does not formally ittkaoulecli.'o HJ the vigor and prowess ot tho blggiwt of nlld HJ toyl. whoso Eoarchlnar jdanco can wlthstaud evon the dazzling radlanco of tho noonday sun. In the Unltod States tho eaglo has always boon regardod as tho omblom ot patriotism. As such, its outllnos havo been fieoly stamped on tho coins of tho republic, ami no American schoolboy noods to bo told that tho eaitlo is ft fighting bird, dangorous when runted, gorous lu coulllct, Blooiles., patlont, lusty, and game. Thoro aro no files ou tho calo, and his volco Is not musical. Tho Democrats of Ohio Inst Wednesday se lected as their emblem thobarnyard roost or, a domestic animal of strldout lungs but un pretentious manners, and not oqulppod by nature, science, or training successfully to onoountor tho oagle at Bhort rango. But the rooster Is a garao bird, undlplomatlo and Intrepid, always ready for an antagonist of hla own slzo, or larger, and accustomed to have his supromooy acknowledged, or to know tho reason why. Tho eaglo suggosts patriotism; tho rooster suggests utility. Tho formor Is a patrician, living In an eyrie away from human habita tion, and little concornod with mundane matters. Tho lattor Is a domocrat, always to bo found Drotty close to tho granary, and taking a hustling part In all farmyard afrolra. Tho rooster Is a born homo ruler, and thoroforo a truo democrat, whoreas the eagle represents nobody In parttoular, and Is least popular whero ho Is bost known. For tho first tlmo the electors of Ohio this year will havo an opportunity of ex pressing their political preferences accord ing to bird ombleras, a now dovlco In Ameri can voting, and probably hotter suited to Ohio than to New York. Hero, happily, man Is still tho noblest typo ot honost conviction, lofty aspiration, and pntrlotlo endeavor among voters of common kinship and sim ilar destiny. A man's name, the standard bearer ot the causo which accopts him as Its champion, heads overy tlckot, Democratic or Republican, In New York. Mr. Ulley aud Ills Nozzle Tho hop louse is a very groat pest, whose destruction Is greatly to bo desired, without any doubt. It is In tho lino of thoAgricul tmal Department's function to point out how this can bo done, as It Is its function to furnish Information usoful to crop growers In general. But when the departmont sots out to advertlso the machines and Inven tions ot pets ot tho departmont, and thus promote private speculations, It does what it should not do. Socretary Rusk may not know that this Is systematically and extensively dono at the publio expense Nevertheless It Is tho fact. It has from timo to tlmo been tho fact for yoars back, and it Is particularly so now. " Circular No. 2, second uerIcs,,TvhIch he has just Issued, Is a flagrant instance. Os tensibly tho publication Is to furnish In formation concerning " tho hop-plant louse," byC. V. Riley, who signs hlmselt "Ento mologlit" of tho department; but tho chief purpose ot tho publication Is to make known that tho 6ald Individual Is the pat entee of an apparatus called "the Cycloso or Riley nozzle," and that It "can be bought" of certain dealers In certain places at a certain prlco. The publication referred to also has a pic ture, a fancy sketch, protending to show how this "nozzlo" ot Mr. Rilet Is used, to set fortU Its superior merits, and how pur chasers can prepare It for use. An adver tisement of Mr. Riley's alleged Invention is twice worked into the publication "by authority of the Socretary ot Agriculture." It is even asserted that v,hilo there aro other " nozzles, " Mr. Riley's Is the best ot all. Is cheapest, and can bo purchased at the prlco stated, at certain places. With plenty of those "nozzles" sold, Mr. Riley's Income will of course be handsome. With tho liberal advertising which ho Is en joying at Government cost In protended ofllclal documents from tho department, "by authority of tho Secretary," the specu lation cannot fall ot succeeding. Saying nothing of the lndeconcy ot thus systematically advertising private in ventions, thero is the further fact that Mr. Riley, as a publio officer, living off tho Government, has no right to profit by suoh a proceeding. Inventions made by persons in tho service ot the Government belong to tho Government, lhls Is fixed so by law as to certain branches of tho publio service; if it Is not so ns to all, it Is morally so; and Riley should receive attention from tho proper nuthorltlos for his manifold offences as a Government sorvant. "What ld It Mean? It seems that when the Rev. Mr. Gooon of Chicago proclaimed and defended the old fashioned views ot the Scriptures before the Congregational Council In London the other day, his remarks wero received with loud cheers, a rcmarkablo Innovation In an Eng lish houso of worship. Yot there are no ministers and no theolo gians among whom tho new mothods of Biblical criticism have gained greater cur rency than those represented at this council. Long beforo the fallibility of the Scriptures was taught publicly by Dr. Bitiaoa.and before he had announced his theory of " progressive 6anctiilcatlou " after death, similar doctrines were Inculcated by professors of tho Congre gational Theological Seminary at Andover, and their influence was frequently mani fested when candidates for tho ministry camo beforo ordination councils. It there Is any theological school at which the new German Biblical critics are more thor oughly Intronched than at Andover, It is not found in thl6 country. If Dr. Buiaas woro drlvon out of his pres ent placo, Andover would bo a congenial and asympathotlo homo for him. Among the members ot tho London Council are several CongrogaUonal mlnlstors from tho United States who aro known to bo thoroughly im bued with his views. Tho stoutest defondcr ot Dr. Bnioas's opinions In tho Presbyterian Church is the Rov. Dr. Parkbubsi ot this city, and ho passed over to Prcsbyterlanlsra from tho ranks of tho Cougregatlonalists. Tho Andoicr Review, representing tho teach ings of tho Massachusetts sominary, is dis tinguished for its rationalists Interpreta tion and analysis ot tho Scriptures. Con gregational ministers in good standing do not hesltato to denounce tho doctrlno ot tho damnation of tho heathen as monstrous and satanlc, and not a fow of them receive with satisfaction tho theory of a second proba tion after doath. Tho most brilliant ot tho youngmcnofroilngthoraselvesaseatididates for appointment by tho Missionary Board aro affected by tho same ows. Thus, howover tho London Council may havo applauded tho Chicago speaker's do fencoot what Dr. Unions calls Bibllolatiy, thesoiitlnicntofinany of tho ablest of tho Congregational mlulhtry in this countiy Is on tho other faldo. Tliuy nro also and al most invariably tnlnibtois distinguished for tholr popularity with the laity, Thoy occu py some ot tho most prominent and Influen tial pulpits in tho denomination, aud they aro secuio ugnlust attacks on them as heretics. The more heretical tlipy aio the gi eater seems to Ui their popularity. So far as, their views of Hibllcnl Inspiration nio coiu'cni'Ml, thoin Is ery little dilToieuco be twoon them mul tho I'ultnrlans. The dif ference is rather in tho mntmei of te:fh lng, tho forms ot expression, than in the laaeBHBHeHaMeHeuieaBHBaBeiBeBMOeHaBleaooeeeaeaBBaeaeiael subslanro of Iho doctrlno prcsonlod. Thoy rejeot tho Infallibility ot Sorlpturo as a supoistltlon exploded by modorn scholar ship, and, Ilko tho Presbyterian Dr. Park huiiht, turn wltu horror from parts of tho Ulblo as cruol and of devilish and not holv Inspiration. They discover In somoof the books evldcnres of pious fiaud, and smllo at tho popular bollet in the wholo as tho Word of God In both IKternnd spirit. If, thero'ore, the applause of Mr. Gooou's celebration of tho Ulblo as nu absolutely perfect nidation, final and complete, was universal at tho London Council, thero must havo been many dissenters among tho audl clco. Tho dapping ot their hand 4 did not roprosonttho feelings of tliolr hoarts aud tho convictions nr their liitollocts. In no other denomination has tho theological rovolutlon proceeded further than In tho Congregation al. It hid already gono far beforo It began to bo dlxcci ned among Presbyterians. Proper I'luces for Prohibition. A commotion was caused in Halifax last Friday, according to a telegram from Nova Scotia, by tho rofusal of tho omployoes ot tho stroot tntlroad to submit to a now regu lation relating to tho uso of strong drink. This rule prohibits tho mon In tho sorvlco of the company "from drinking liquor or treat ing, either during or after working hours, or visiting saloona upon any pretence." The drivers and conductors refused to obey and a strike was the result. In this particular case the prospect was that thero would bo a compromise, but the Incident Is of moro than passing Interest as botring upon tho clrcumstancos under which total abstinence may properly bo Insisted upon by employers as a condition ot con tinued employment. However It may be on a stroot railroad In a city, we can readily understand that there must bo places In the service of a steam rall l oad company which the directors would pre fer to havo occupied by mon who nover drink at all. Other things being equal, a con ductor, or nnglnoor, or switchman, or flag man who never uses liquor Is probably more trustworthy than one who drinks, although only once In a wlillo. For such responsible posts where scores ot human lives may be lmporllled or destroyed by a single act of carelessness or even ot erroneous judgment, a man wants all bis faculties at command and under absoluto control; and tho man who Is strong enough and healthy enough to keep them so without having to resort to the aid of alcoholic stimulants is best fitted for duties of this kind. There are many employments In whlchlt wouldbe mere tyranny to require that a workman should abstain from any uso of spirits during his leisure hours; but upon a railroad operated by steam, such a rule, so far at least as the more Important places aro concerned, could not bo de nounced as unreasonable. And a good deal might be said In defence of It as applied to the drivers of horse cars. So many persons are Injured overy year by tho careless driving of these vehicles that tho street-car companies ought to adopt every safeguard which will havo a tendency to reduce the number of accidents. The Camera Must Go With tho Ticket. Somo years ago the Director-General was tho great man of a World's Fair, but con sidering an extraordinary line of special artistic development slnco that time, the most important functionary now must be acknowledged tobo tho official photographer. Tho boss ot tills department for Chicago will bo Mr. Casii.hv Dryplate Arnold. Mr. Arnold's speiiul work will bo to tako the buildings us thoy aro built. Who shall oflicHlly photograph tho Fair at its height for tho pun liases of tho general public Is for later selection. Another and much moro important ques tion relutes to tho general right ot photog raphy when Chicago shall open the show gates. 0 ho number of cameras of tho ama teur automatic poisuaslon Is increasing In far greater ratio than the population. The adaptation of larger and more satisfactory sizes to tho portable button-pressing forms, has progressed of late so successfully that tho next fow years may expoct an enlarge ment ot the camera-carrying class, such as tho already marvellous extension of the photographic fancy could scarcely suggest. Tho spirit of enterprise that animates the uso of tho camera Is so vigorous, and tho number ot its dovotces will be so great by 1QH1 tm rf mil,, Tplll tliMlanntln rt nhntnrr- raphcrs bo among tho visitors of tho Chi cago Fair, but thousands will visit tho Fair tor the simple reason that thoy are photog raphers, and know that thoy will find In such an aggregation of men and things a memorable opportunity for the croation ot Interesting negatives. Wo dissent, therefore, from the proposi tion of our esteemed contemporary, the Ptiotoprapkio Times, that In Chicago, as in Paris, tho privilege of photography should bo sold to applicants at sums fixed for ama teurs and professionals. This branch of the artistic- publio Is so largo and its work so desirable that subjection to such discrimina tion from the rest ot tho population becomes an Injustice. What moro magnificent mon ument could be erected to the momory ot Columbus than tho recognition of tho right ot free photography ? It Is an lndls pensablo featuro of the scientifically pro gressive socloty that enjoys tho other time honored blessings of tho United States. At tho great Columbian ovout a tax on cameras Is not to bo thought of. Lot us all take views, If wo desire, upon no other con dition than the legal entrance Into the grounds by tho customary surrender ot a ticket. It Is reported from New Orleans that there Is a laek ot medical eorvioa at tho quar antine station near that city, where thoro have been ten cases of yellow fovor. We learn that the Federal authorities at Washington have becnnBlcodto send to tho quarantine tho doc tors who are needod, and It is to be presumed that this will yet be done. But there must be no further delay In doing It. At several of our ports this jear thero has boon dancer ot the introduction of yellow fovor, and all precau tions must be taken against that calamity. Now Jersey's State encampment at Sea Qlrt closed on Raturday. It was evontful in various ways. Although a steady, drenching rain fell on the day ot breaking camu, and oc casional downpours through tho weak bad also shown the citizen soldlors that tent Ills iias Its drawbacks, jet, on the whole, tbo skies were favorable.

Governor Campbell Is speaking ot the can vass In Ohio, whoro he Is a candidate for re election. If he is corroct In his prognostica tion, and that is his programme another prophocr Is in ordor.

They appoa'.od to the Mayor ot tho city, but bo gave thorn notloo that he had no power to aot In the case; thoy appenlsd to tho Governor ot tho State, but he assurod them that there is no law under which tho light can bo prevented. The Episcopalian Ulshon apponlod to tho ath letic club to relieve itself from responsibility In the promises, but thnt organization was doat to his appeal. As a last rosort tho olergy ot Bt Paul determined to preach on tho subject, and yestorday they delivered anti-puglllstlo sermons, the influence of whloh has not yot been reported. It Is a hard battle that the clergy of St. Paul have waeod ; and yot, for all that. Wednesday's fight is very sure to be fought. An Oxford-Harvard elght-oarod race on the British Thames lu September would be a lint supplement to the Yale-Harvard race on the Connecticut Thames la June. In such a struggle between those victors in the chief university matches ot the present year In either country, there would be a reasonablo chance of the ortmson's winning again over the blue. Years nave passed since Harvard has had so good an eight as now. It Is true that she had high hopes of success twenty-tw o years ago. whon she sent a picked four to Eng land to contend with the better half ot tho Ox ford winners of 18G9. The dnrk blue, hon ever, chanced to havo at that time, In DABBismitK, Trsnii, Yabbobouoii and Willax. a superb crew that found no trouble in dofeating the ambitious visitors. Still American collages nave learned sometning since then Dotn about rowing and training; and the form aud strength exhibited by Harvard at Mew London last month Indicate that now Is heropportunlty for retrieving herself at old London. Tho ob stacle la that she would need much time to collect her men and crois the ocean, and then train, get back into practice, and become ac oustomed to the wholly unknown course. A complete return to her best form and a perfect mastery of tho unfamiliar rlvor would doubt less be needed tor any hope of winning against Oxford, and the time Is fast slipping away In whloh suoh preparations for a mid-Soptombor match would be possible. But inasmuoh as the entire Harvard eight will be at the univer sity next year, a race with Oxford might be arranged for 1892. should it fall through now. It Is pleasing to observe tho ways of the German-American Tumors who are now hold ing their national festival In AVilllamsburgh. They decorate the pavilions ot the sporting ground with flowers and bushes; they sing songs while the athletic performances are In progress; they quaff tho foaming beer; they have literary exercises In which there aro declamations and recitations, and in which wreaths are won: they have bands of music; they have games and amusoments for the women and the children; they are sociable from morning till nlcht, and thoy laud each other's feats of skill, agility, and strength. Truly these are lively days for the Turners, to whom bo health and happiness I It now looks as If tho project for uniting tho cities ot Minneapolis and St Paul would have to be given up on account ot the Impossi bility of finding a tolerable name for the con solidated city. The debate on tho subjoct is so exciting that there Is danger, according to the St. Paul Olobe. that " it will drive part of onr citizens to drink, and make raving maniacs ot the rest of them." The St Paul paper speaks scornfully of the namo that the Mla neapolltans dote upon: "The word Ulnneepolls le conolaslTO) evidence th&t thero wJ on epoch In the hletory or thle Steto when a lower form ot harbirlim proTallod then during tho drnuty of the rediklne end prelrle wolrea.

Twonty-olgiitltiisslanllcbrowiramlgrniils have been debarred from landing at tho port of Boston, and thirty-one have beon debarrod at the port ot New York on the ground that they were penniless and helpless.

In tho general atten tion now dlrocted to improving tho mcloncy of tho navy, it is possible that somo effort may bo mado to put tho hi stem of Navy Doptrt ment administration on a hotter basis. At tho foundation of our present Govornmont thero wan no Navy Departmont, and, in fact, vory little navy. Throughout Washington's Admin istration tho only Cabinot olTlcers were the Secretaries of State, War, and tho Treasury, tho Postmastor-Osneral, and the Attorney General.

Not until 1798 wasaseparato Navy Department established, the first Becre tnrv nomlnntnd bAlnc CtAnrra Cahrtt.. tvhn Ha. cllnod the oOlco, whoroupon Benjamin Stod dort of Maryland was appointed. It Is curious to trace the changes in navy administration from the first In the autumn ot 1775, during the war of the Itovolution.when Congress provided for two cruisors, It foundod a Marine Commtteeoof its own members. A year lator. a subordinate Continental Naval Board was established, and suhseauently sub divided Into an JUastorn and a Middle Board. Throe years afterward, a Board of Admiralty was snbstltuted, consisting of two Cougress mon and three othor members. Then Its au thority was once moro transferred toabecro tary of Marine, and about siv months later to an Agent of Marino, whllo finally the latter's duties foil under the Superintendent ot finances. What further transformations might havo boon made, save for the dwindling nwav. after the close of the Revolutionary war, of Any navy reaulrlng administration, can only lie Imagined, .After tho iavy Donartment had been estab lished, as already noted, tbo first change ot im portance came in 1815. when congress crested under the Secretary n Board ot Commission ers, to be comno-od of Cnptalns ot tho navy nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate. Many famous American snllors. Ilko Hull. Decutur, l'ortor, Bainbridge. Morris, and tilowart, served on thnt Hoard, It has been praised by high naval authorities in our day. However, aftor lasting twenty-seven venrs. In 1842 the pro-ent bureau system superseded it. The number ot bureaus was live; twenty years afterward, in 1HU2, during the olvd wnr.lt was lucroasod toolght. 'lheso eight bureaus exist to-day. with thooOlcoof Judge Advocate-Uoneral added. It wlllnaturallr be suggested thatamanr headed organization like this must have do v eloped defects, even If only those arising out ot complexity ana diversity, in met, Secretary Whitney, soon after tuklng charge o( lb de partment sought to group all .Navy Depart ment work into throe main divisions, consist ing first, of the personnel and tho Hoot ; second, cf material and construction : third, ot llnance and accounts. But Congress would not con sent to this plan, and Mr. U hltnor accordingly devoted himself to partlnlly securing, by vir tue ot bis exeoutlve authority, the advantage of thn third proposed division, through In creasing the authority and duties ot the Bu reau of Provisions nud Clothing under tho Paymaster-Ueneral Ihls uowconstitutes.'to a Croat ettont, u dlv liou of finance and at counts bocretnry Tracy, ou succeeding to control, do voted himself promptly to another branch of udmlnlstrntlon, that of tlio personnel, anil so enlargod the functions ot the liurcau of Navi gation as to bring under It nearly ovorything relating to the personnel of the navi. Another one of the suggested main divisions wns thus to a certain oxtout provided for. Mnally. the constitution of a Hoard of Bureau Chiefs, con sisting of the heads of the live related buroaus ot Construction and liepalr. Btoam Kngiueer Ing, Ordinance, Equipment, and lards and Docks, brought undor a joint supervision what ever belonged u the division of mnterial and construction. Tho Bureau of Medicine and tiurgery. like the Judge Advocnte-Uoueral's olllce. necessarily stands by Itself. In considering whother still further improve ments can be made. Inquiries havo beon con ducted into foreign systems. Jt Is found lu general that In countries where the legislative authority Is very great the navy, us In our own country, is placed undor a civilian head, whllo In countries like Germany aud ltns-la. where tbo "war lord" function of the monarch Is emphasised a professional officer Is nut over the navy. In Knuland. France, and Ituly the bead of tho navy Is also a member of the par liament ornntlonal legislature, but has tho aid of otllcers of the navy of high rank. One of tho points which tho European systems have in t ommon Is the separation of the eteoutiv e and the admlnlstratlvo duties, tbo latter In Eng land, for exomple, being prestdod over by the llrstLnrdof the Admiralty, while the former aro Intrusted to the charge of tbeXrst boa Lord. Another point noticeable Is thnt the three divisions already spoken of for the dls trihutlon of all Navy Department work, name ly, personnel, material, and accounts, exist In the various European countries. Whether any further Improvements can be made on our present burenn system remains to ho soon; but it must be admitted thnt there is less complaint of Its workings under the present modlllcations than thero was a few years ago.

Franco ap. poars to I o vory proud of her Isolated position in 1 u t one. Bho looks upon tho triple or ausdruplo nlllanco as acompllmont paid to her ptesont military stronctb. With an army numerically superior to thnt ot Germany by from GOO.OOO to 800,000 men, supplied with the best Infantry arm no far Invented, with afar greater numbor ot field batteries than I'.mrmror William can now boast of. and with facilities for mobilization equal at loast to those ot any other power, she stands alone defying her enemy and all his doubtful allies. Tho triple alllanco Is still called tho bond ofpeaco. Ilumbucl Kvorybody knows that It was made for war. In st'ito ot tho acres ot arguments that have been published with a view to concealing Its truo character, its In tont and monntng bocome plainer and ciearor every day. It was first formod by Bismarck when he began to havo doubts In rogard to the conBoqnoncos of summoning l'ranco to dis arm. In other words, ho doubted Germany's ability single handed to como out victorious in a second and genuine trial ot strength with TrfinAA fjAtinilv Irn.H liatlii, thnn li.rfMlhn, In 1870 he caught the Gaul napping andhad"wondorful luck." But things havo changed greatly slnco 1870. Prussia Is not now tho only country In which etory man Is a Boldlor, and thoohancos to win military glory by throwing masses agnlnst pnrticloa aro not so groat as they usod t be. After the mttaU Uance botween Austria and Italy It was thought that the summons to Franco would come In Bhort order, but It didn't. Bismarck wasn't quite sura ot tho neutrality of Itussla; neither was ho quite sure of his allies, llt.-t successors aro In tho same fix. Thoy would like well enongh to attack Trance, but, in plain English, thsy are afraid. That Is how the alllanco stands, and that Is the wholo ot it hen a vlllogo bully wishes to glvo a thrashing to his enemy and at the same time doubts his own ability single handed to afford the luxury, he gets other fel lows to promise to help him, but he knows also that It is not wiso to place too much confidence In such promises. Bo be keeps the peace against his will. The present position In Europe ot the nation that has been called tbo upstart In victory is pretty much like that of the village rowdy. " The reconstltutlon of our national forces," says the Iiipubllque Fiancaise. "enables us, fearing nothing, lo dispense with all outside aid when defending our rights or our bonor. It may be a sad thing to be Isolated la tbo world after having labored eo long for justice, progross. and tbo freedom ot all the op pressed; but there is some satisfaction in find ing ourselves, at a time whon our wounds nro a.nniAli, liantAri tilt. Inrrn, hnt h nl Miao. Ithn havo defeated us and of tuobo nho bnve hailed our disasters with delight When wo see that all these alliances are made against us and us only, our pride becomes all the greater, and we have only a saints of gratitude for those who do us so much bonor. In sllenoe. there fore, wo pursue onr oourao. with as much cou lldonce in the justio of our cause as in tho Btrength of our army." These are proud words, and. what is more, they express the sentiments nf the people of Franco that is to say, the cltlrens of sound mind, without Including the crank's of com munism, tho solous of socialism, or the angels of anarchy, who, happily, must still be re- farded as a inihtiU neViuiabfi-. When ranco and Germany are again atic pn.'f, as they must be nt no dlstnnt day. It Is not very far beyond the range of the probable that the straggle may end with the fall of an other empire and the rlue of another republic. fthW Iouk, July li. W. xue oiuo a. a. n. ox jmpj.

To the Editor or The Buk Sir; Identified with the Grand Army ot the Republlo from Its birth, and Commander for years and atltl ot one of Its best posts in Ohio, I hope that I am entitled to be heard in advance of the ap proaching National Enoampment at Detroit on Aug. S. I know whereof I speak, and no one who knows my history will question mr authority upon this subject when I declare publicly, as I do now most deliberately and most emphatically, that Ohio is no longer the bannor Department. It would be wrcng to claim it It Is unsoldierly as It Is ungentle manly, unoourteous, and disingenuous to claim among eomrade States honors not right fully belonging to Ohio It is true weonco had 60.000 on our rolls in Ohio. Indeed, these namos are there yet possi bly. I see It claimed in many quarters that the rolls ahowtbat Ohio has a banner membership yet of 50,000, and I cannot go behind there turns. Everybody who kuows me knows that I meet and address more posts every year than any other man living. I think I should know what the real strength of tho G. A. It in Ohio is. It has been going down. down, down, and as I honestly bollov e. becauso of tbo odious per capita tax. Do you know what it Is? It is twenty cents por member, paid annually by every post to headiuarters, to pay otllcers sal- urtrs hotl bills.

It Is an enormous tax. We are nearly all very po rmon. Not one fn three whose mames aro enrolled ever pay their dues of a dollar a year Into the posts. The rules and tegulatlons of the U. A. It require that tho.0 who do not pay tholr dues tor six months shall bo suspended, and exouse us thereafter from pa lng por capita tax on them.
