Instead of being Intended to iff ' promote peace, it was designed to intimi- m M date the other great powers ot Europe in 'H ? thoir scramble for Asiatic or African terri- ''4 W OTi nnd to strengthen England in the J fw event of actual war. M F This strips the arbitration project stark H'' p naked. Thanks I It was on escape. Bfirt'5 k 1 JXbo New Position of tho Anti-Parnell- ? lto Party. yj ffi It la taken for granted In some quarters 'M ?jk that a death blow has been dealt to tho , ill movement for the separate government of '3 f Ireland by the caucus of the British Liberal ;i Jjg Association, which has refused to permit U W ' nome n,l flguro any longer as the first H m plank in the Liberal platform. The truth SH 'jE " 1 that nothing is more likely to bring 4c m about a reunion of the threo Nationalist m W? factions on tho lines which Mr. Paknkll M ' laid down. m w- The desire for homo rule Is as strong as m Jt ever was In Ireland, as is proved by the K Kr fact that at the last general election tho g k Nationalists lost only a few scats, anil 'S E those only through intestine dissensions. tik No ono doubts that the party, if reunited, m If could return eighty-flvo members to the W Houso of Commons from Ireland, besides 9p ono from Liverpool, as It did In Mr. PAR 'S, well's time. Whnt hns temporarily dam V aged the home rule cause in England has , been the splitting of tho Nationalist party is Into two, and, subsequently, three, sections, W ' and Its consequent inability to adopt a M common and consistent programme. Ono Sf striking result of the division was seen 1 when the Rosebcry Cabinet was turned H out, the Anti-Parncllites voting with tho Government and the Parnellltes with tho m victorious Opposition. 3k There has bem, indeed, a striking dl. m vergenco of principles and tactics on the m part of Parnellltes and Anti-Parncllites m ever since Mr. Parnell's leadership was 1; repudiated by tho majority of tho Nation- m nllst party. Thnt majority, of which Mr. H Justin McCARTnr was for somo years jK nominally chief, and of which Mr. John m Dillon Is now the head, supported tho jK Liberals on all critical occasions, maintain. m Ing this to be their duty. In view of tho m fact that the Liberals were pledged to glvo jft Ireland a separate Government. Tho Par. 9u nellites, on tho other hand, contended ST that the Nationalists owed a duty to HP Ireland alone, and that this duty jft could bo fulfilled best by avoiding p a close coalition with either of tho j , British political parties. Tbey pointed out S tliat If Mr. Parnell bad not called upon jft all the Ir sh voters in England to support m the Conservative candidates In tho general K. election of 1S0D, Mr. Gladstone, Instead m of obtaining a majority of only three, I& would have gained a decided preponder- jjt. once over all opposing elements combined, afc In which event his acceptance of tho home jJL rule Idea might have been doubtful. m Ono thing Is certain, that the virtual ah- m' sorption of the Antl-Parnelllte3 In the Jar' Liberal party during the Parliament of fm 1802-00 was followed by tho moit trc m mendous catastroplio which tho Liberals SJK- have encountered In this enntury. And m what, asks Mr. JonN Redmond, the leader Mf of the Parnellltes, have Mr. Dillo.s's iS followers secured In return for tho zealous JK service which they have rendered to the a Liberals t Their guerdon Is the decision Jk rca.hed in the caucus of tho British Liberal ra Association, that homo rule shall no W longer constitute the first plank in tho (W Liberal platform, which, of course, means & ' tbat Its consideration shall be adjourned lo Wk tho Greek Kalends, jJP- Wo did not havo to wait long to see the Hr effect of this proceeding. Mr, Joun J Dillon, speaking at Dublin soon after. W- Srard, declared that henceforth the Antl. ' W Parnellltes would repudiate the alliance- i with the Liberals, and would assume an 1 V tndepenfifent position with an eyoslnglo to ' IrUh IntercfUu This U precisely the plat- .,;-, ,m -jj- -x- .- form upon which Mr. John E. Rbt mond stands, and there is, therefore, no longer any reason why the echlsm in tho Nationalist party should not bo healed. Thcro Is no reason to sup pose that Mr. T. Healy, who, for somo time, has been regarded as the leader ot a third faction, would offer the slightest op position to a reconstruction of tho Nation alist party In accordance with Mr. Par nell's views. Wo do not assert that per sonal rivalries will, all at once, become ex tinct, but wo do say that no avowablo pro text for discord remains, and, therefore, wo look upon Nationalist reunion as tho inevitable outcome of the near future. If tho Nationalists, at the next general olectlon, shall onco more constitute a solid column, comprising eighty-six mem bers of Parliament, they will again be able, In all likelihood, to dlotate terms to one of the political parties In Great Britain. Tho enormous preponderance acquired by the Unionists In 1880, and again in 1805, is a political phenomenon never before wit nessed in the United Kingdom since tho first Reform Parliament met In 1833, and not likely to occur again with the present generation. It will be extraordinary If, for the third time, a House of Commons shall bo elected In which eighty-six Irish Nationalism would not command the bal ance of power. All they need. In order to become a decisive factor, is reunion, and this seems near at hand, In view ot the of fonslvo action taken by the Liberal caucus, and ot Mr. Dillon's resentful declaration. Aftor-Dlnner Jocosity. Tho reports of some of the speeches at the New England dinner on Wednesday, and moro especially that of tho opening speech by Mr. Beauan, the President of the society, awaken in the reader a feeling of sympathy for l ho orators because of the hardship to which they are subjected In the publication of their persiflage and somewhat forced attempts at wit and humor. Such oratori cal syllabub Is apt to become rather flat when It Is printed In cold type the next morning for tho Information of peoplo who woro not In the exhilarated company to which it was addressed. Undoubtedly, the prime requisite In an after-dinner speech is that It shall not be dull. First of all, the speaker must not be a bore, and, other things being equal, his remarks, accordingly, must not be prolix. Moro especially Is this the cose when he undertakes to be witty, for brevity Is the soul of wit. Nor docs tho humor befit the dignity of an Important anniversary din ner like that with which the New England Society commemorates the landing of the Pilgrims, unless, as Sidney Surrn required, It is manifestly the play of a rich and seri ous mind; ior, as Horne expressed it, "wit without wisdom Is salt without meat." Of late years, however, there has devel oped a variety ot after-dinner speakers whose special function Is to be funny solely for the sake of the fun, clowns pure and simple, and they have imitators In men whoso deficiency In the sense of humor Is painfully apparent. Their end is served if they provoke laughter, and It Is costly ac complished under tho circumstances of conviviality. For thU reason, the reader of tho reports of such speeches in tho next morning's paper Is sometimes puzzled to account for tho "laughter" and " Immod erate laughter" parenthetically recorded. He has not the help ot champagne to en able him to see the reason for It. Is it not questionable If the chaffing, Jocular, and perfunctorily funny after-dinner speech has not gradually been carried to an extreme which would make, its abate ment grateful to tho diners themselves? Mr. Joseph II. Ciioate may be described as its originator, and ho was wonderfully clever at it, but Imitation has tended to de prive it of tho grace which alone gives it Its charm, so tbat the ordeal of the funny speech sometimes becomes painful both for tho man who has to mako It and those who have to listen to It with polito approbation. Nor does tho attempt to bo funny or smart always comport with the dignity accredited to tho speaker by the public imagination or belonging to his official consequence. He may get down too near to tho clown in his eagerness to provoko laughter. If, then, a spice of low comedy is requisite to tho completeness of the entertainment as a foil to serious oratory, why would It not bo better to employ professional Jesters to supply tho article 1 They can beat tho amateur comedians, tho Bishops, Judges, lawyers, and bank Presidents, and glvo them odds besides. Tho Explorer of Armenia. Since the days when Marco Polo and Sir JonN Mandeville gave to a delighted world the accounts of their travels and ad ventures In strange lands and among un couth people, thcro has been nothing to compare with tho letters of tho Rov. Dr. Tar taric IlEPWORTn, now rapidly careering through Asia Minor on an Inquiry into the two-year-old Armenian massacres, and per sonally conducted by a Lcvantlno drag oman and somo functionaries of tho Palaco at Constantinople, There Is in the worthy gentleman's writ ings the rapturous nalvot6 of youth, with tho touch here and thero of Inaccuracy that, like tho crooked lines In tho Parthenon, enhances rather than detracts from the general charm of tho ensemble. It Is a mere error in detail to say that Erzeroum Is on the highway of travel between Bag dad and Constantinople, which It is not; and it was an egotistical blunder that may bo pardoned tho Doctor when he repre sented himself as tho first European or American who had ever penetrated to those savage regions. The fact that a Frenoh traveller, Prof. CnANTRE, and his wife, to mention only those two, visited Bltlls and passed over tbo route from Aleppo on their woy to Mount Ararat, In the Russian Transcau caiua, in 1801, the same route that Dr. Hepwoktii Is taking from Bltlls on his way bock to civilization, appears to have been unknown to him ; as also tho fact that Prof. Chantre wrote a very Interesting book on his travels, with excellent Illustra tions. Had Dr. Hepwortii consulted this work In connection with a good map of the region, and had he spent a fow hours In studying the Bluo Books on Armenia, issued by the British Government at tho time of the massacres, be would havo ob talned a far more accurate. Idea of what happened than he canderlvo now with such an escort as accompanies him. Tho reverend Doctor had only to take his materials with him and disappear for two months, say, In the pine forests of Michigan, and he might havo returned with somo Oriental costumes and a yata ghan and tchlbouk, and a pound or two of Persian tumbekl, such as composes tho bulk ot the merchandise that passes on camels' backsu between Tabrls and Trebl tonde, via Erwroum, all of which might have been purchased In any Oriental ware- a ttaw i iiiii, i iiUflwwsWLj aJfem'iMitf11.IBWPiWt,'tLJHffg ammmmmmmmmmmtmmmmm house on Broadway. He blight 'have given out that ho bad tramped through tho Armenian country In the disguUo ot a deaf and dumb Karageut. If Immediately on his return ho had published a circum stantial and detallod account of what hap pened in particular 'localities, with tho necessary padding from authentic writings, compiled in the imagination-Inspiring air of the Michigan plno woods, the Sultan would havo trembled and perhaps shown signs of contrition and repentance. Every one, ot course, will bo pleased to hear that the worthy and rovcrend Doctor has once moro emerged from darkest Arme nia whole In body and with a digestion only partially Impaired by too much gravy. Tho redoubtable MoussA Bey, who had a way of cutting off missionaries' ears and roost ing Armenians that earned htm a world wide reputation, long ago left Bltlls for exile at Talf, In Arabia, or for the bottom of the Sea ot Marmora, It Is not precisely known which. So there is reasonable cer tainty that wo shall see tho Intrepid Doctor onco moro and read his sermons again, it so disposed. It there has been too great a strain on his stomach, caused by the end less courses of successive Turkish banquots, where the object Ot tho entertainer Is to surprlso his honored guest by dishes fol lowing each other, startling In their con tents and contrasts, sweets and sours, pud dings and soups, roasts, boiled and baked meats, according to the caprice of the cook, there are many well-known restoratives by the use of which he may recover hlu pris tine American appetite. In all seriousness, It Is difficult to see what tho particular objoct Is that It was intended to promote by sending Dr. Hep worth to Armenia, unless tt was to throw dust in tho eyes of somebody whilo securing an advertisement for somebody else. It will be fortunate for tho Armenian people If fresh trouble does not ariso for them out of this "mission," for whatever may bo tho character of tho " report" mode, the Turks will be assured that it has been favorable to them, and thoy will derive a satisfaction from it that may react on the unfortunate Armenians. If tbo object of sending Dr. Hepwortti to Armenia was to convince the world tbat the American missionaries had nothing to do with the tactics of tho Armenian revo lutionists, and disapproved of them, It was entirely unnecessary. It was equally use less and somewhat grotesque to send a man all that distance from his fireside home In America that he might Indite a letter on the lmmoralityof killing tens of thousands ot innocent persons because a handful of desperate Anarchlstshad preached rebellion against the Sultan. Nothing new has been added to what is already known, and if any evidence was needed to fix the responsibility for tho atrocious crimes of two years ago in Asia Minor, It was not among the snow-clad mountains of Armenia that It had to bo looked for, but Insldo tho blood-stained portals of the Ylldiz Kiosk. The Acqnlcsconoo of Japau. Almost at the eleventh hour, yet not too . late to set herself right on tho record, and to be rewarded by the good will ot our country, Japan, through her Minister at Washington, abandons any further protest against the annexation of Hawaii to tho United States. The Mikado's Government Is wise In thus bowing gracefully to the Inevitable. It would have been strange If, when even land-grabbing nations like England, France, and Germany, countries that havo vast commercial Interests In tho Pacific, made no objection to our admission of Ha waii, Japan had remained to the end In a false position. It has been clear from tho first that her protest did not weaken by a solitary vote the chances of tho annexation measure In Congress, and that, In fact, it only suggested tho dangers that Hawaii might run from immigration and other disputes with Japan, so long as she re mained out of tho Union. Minister TonuIIosni would liko to have, as a sequence of his country's chango of at titude, assurances that Japan's rights In Hawaii will be protected after annexation. But, in tho nature of the case, thnt cannot be made an clement of the annexation meas ure. Assurances of a general character were promptly given by Secretary Siiermak, and President McKinley repeated and empha sized them. Whilo Hawaii's treaties with Japan must inevitably lapse by tho extinc tion of her sovereignty, and while any new treaties with Japan relating to her subjects In Hawaii must be based on tho policy of tho United States as a whole, yet it Is cer tain that vested rights will be protected. Our first business, howover, is to annex Hawaii, and in the fundamental act of an nexation no affairs of a third party can be introduced. Wo think, howover, that Japan's courte ous and friendly course, just taken, will In crease tho disposition ot Congress to deal fairly with her In her Hawaiian relations. At all events, she has put herself right on the record, and Hawaii will come In with out a protest from any nation In tho world. The Next IiCfrlslatnre. The one hundred and twenty-flrst session of the New York Legislature Is about to begin at Albany. The Assembly, Re publican by a majority nf 0, a major ity sufficient for tho purposes of or ganization and control, will bo asso ciated as a law-making body with a Senate overwhelmingly Republican, having, in deed, a two-thirds mojorlty. The Senate will be mado up of 30 Ropubllcans and 14 Democrats, whereas the Assembly will consist of 78 organization Republicans nd ot 72 Democrats and malcontent Repub licans or CltB. Heretofore, Senators have been elected In alternate years, and tbo raembors of the upper branch of tho State Legislature have, therefore, been elected either colncidcntly with the Assemblymen with whom they serve, or In tho year preceding. The next Legislature, however, will be mado up of 50 Senators chosen In 1805, and 150 As sembly men chosen In 1807. Tho Insufficiency of the Republican ma jority In tho Assembly, If It may be so re garded in comparison with the unusual and Indeed abnormal Republican majority In tho Sonatc, Is Important in a political sense on account of that part of the Stato Constitution, Article XI l rcctlon 2, which provides for the acceptance or rejection of local measures in cltks of tho first clabs by the Mayor thereof. After Jan. 1 there will bo only two cities of tho first class In tho State, namoly, New York and Buffalo ; and probably there will be much supplemental legislation, wholly applicable to New York, the arceptenco or rejection of which, in tho first place, will devolve upon the Mayor of Ibis town, an organization Democrat, succeeding In office an anti-organization Republican. The Constitution provides that where, for any JVItrttTgitf'reMV'SniivrTiirrrr n-rrT-ffiiri mi7i , . reason, a local bill relating wholly to a : municipality of the first class ho been re jected by tho Mayor, In order to become a law, subject to tho action ot the Governor, It must be passed by tho Legislature for a second time. With an Assembly so closely divided a tho next ono will be, there will bo more likelihood of tho failure of . a majority of tho members to concur in I tho vlow taken by a majority of the Sena tors, thus barring tho second passage of tho bill In question. On the other hand, In all matters of ap pointment, and thero are many such in 1808, wherein tho nomination by tho Gov ernor must bo confirmed by tho Senate, tho Republican majority In tho upper branch at Albany Is so largo as to mako easy tho confirmation of Governor Black's nominees. Former Governors, when Demo crate, usually have had to make their nominations subject to tho approval ot a Senate of tho opposite party, but Governor Black will hovo.no embarossment In that regard, and he seems likely to be a com manding figure in maintaining tho organi zation lines, threatened at some points by tho manoeuvres of those of the Mugwumps who call themselves Republicans. A vigilant, steadfast, and Intrepid or ganization Republican Governor, backed and supported by a Senate which is Re publican by moro than two-thirds majority, will block any projected Democratlo legis lation which might find favor with the Assembly. Altogether, the next session of tho Legislature Is likely to provo Interest ing, and upon tho record mado by Its mem bers will depend In consldorablo measure tho State's vote of November next, when a Governor Is to be chosen. An Incident of War. Tho Figaro printed tho other day an In teresting artlclo on French military pic tures, In which, of course, Detaille and Df Nbtjville come in for their just share of glory. It (s a pity that the latter died before ho could mako a companion picture to "The Lost Cartridges." Many American tourists havo visited the museum In tho outskirts of Bazellles, where the house In which Commandant Lambert, now Gen. Lambert, and his companions exhausted their ammunition In desperate resistance of the Bavarians still stands, just as It was at tho close ot the battle of Sedan. There is tho hole in tho roof through which tho shell dropped. Thero aro the bullet-sprinkled walls, the splin tered furniture, such as It was, and the old chest against which the wounded Com mandant leaned while the last bullets were sent to the enemy. Crossing the threshold of that house is like entering, so to say, the famous canvass of De Neuville. Tho companion picture which Is wanting, and the material for which was uncon sciously furnished somo time ago by Gen. Lambert himself, would bo dramatlo and powerful In the extreme. In an Intervlow with a Parisian Journalist tho General told the story in simple and soldierly language. He described tho fury of tho Bavarians over the losses which his handful ot men had mado them suffer. When the last shot had been fired, nothing remained but a hopeless and desperate bayonet charge. But tho Commandant told his men not to attempt It until they saw what would be his own fate. He opened tho door and appeared upon the threshold in face of the Infuriated soldiers. A number of them made a rush upon him, but they were driven back by tho brave and chivalrous Bavarian officer, who covered him with his body, and Lam bert and his companions wero mado pris oners of war. That Is tho simple story. Where Is the splendid picture? Como Eleven! Tho Committco of Enrollment appointed by the Windsor notel Fit ty-thrce or Forty seven, representing tho Windsor Hotel Nino or Eight, Is to consist of eleven mem bers. By resolution of the Forty-seven, the Eleven Is to begin to enroll "so soon as the name of the new organization, the qualifi cations of the members to bo required, and the unit or lowest body to be established In tho now organization" havo been deter mined. Tho Eleven will be able to begin, then, as soon as it has been appointed. Thero aro no difficulties in its way. Tho name of tho now organization is tho Allkicks. The qualification Is to want to be a boss yourself. Tho lowest body In tho concern will bo tho Hon. Whitelaw Reid, who also has tbo distinction of being a unit for tho Hon. WniTELAw Reid and anything nice In the plush breeches line. The Eleven has an easy Job. Tnn Sun yields to no man in Its respect for tho romantic and In Its sympathy with tho proper expressions of human affection, but It supports tho proposition that kissing shall bo abolished on the piers of incoming steamships as an indefenslblo obstacle to debarkation and tbo necessary business of tbo Custom House.

Instructions have been issued to Postmasters In tho Dominion by tho Government of which Sir Wilfrid Laurler Is Premier, notifying them that "seditious" mat ter, or mattor tending to exctto resistance to lawful authority and established Government, is from this tlmo forward prohibited circulation In Canada, and they are told tbat wbero any doubt exists In their minds as to the character or degree of sedition In any document or paper passing through their hands they aro to submit the matter to the Postmaster-General at Ottawa. According to this edict of monarchical rule In Canada, no one may discuss or circulate in print or writing opinions as to whother annoxatlon to this country or Independence is tho be Iter policy for the Canadian people in their own Interests. It will come under the head of seditious matter that it to bo confiscated; and the writer or tender or recelvor may, under tho law passed during the tlmo of tho late Sir John A. Mac donald. be arrested, tried, and mado to suffer Imprisonment. It would seem from private Information on the subject that this application ot tho English law of sedition thnt Is being so vigorously ad ministered In British India is mado In Canada in conscquonce of the effects produced by some circulars published by a republican committee In Canada, some of which found their way to India and were aald to have stimulated tho feelings of disaffection toward the British Gov ernment tbnt already existed there. The British Government, It would appeur, has requested tho Canadian Government to take steps to suppress public di'cusslon In any way of such seditious subjects ns annexation, Independence, or com mercial union with Ibis country, as tending to disturb and creato discontent In other British colonics and dependencies. The present Cana dian Government and Its Premier being, as the latter has said with emphasis, "British to the coro," they have hastened to comply with tho request of the suzerain power. It results from this that n e may expect at any time to see coercion brought into play In Can ada for the suppression of political opinions, and possible disturbances arising out of It, if Cana dians In any numbers should be of the opinion tbat it Is the Interest of tbcmsolvcs aud tho country to sorer political connections with a State on tbo other Bide of tho Atlantic Thero teems, after all, but a Blight difference between British rulo and tho practice In dispotically governed countries where the Governments do tho political thinking for tho people.

TUB DEMAND FOX THE XAXE8 Of THE PEyaidXEttS, THO rtret Step Toward a Readjustment arSav eraraeat rtecelnte and BspeadUarm. To tiib Editor or Tnn BvsSir: It mutt gratify you to know that one hoars on every tldo praises for your fearless exposure of tho pension swindle. For several years the writer hns talked with Independent, conservative men about this groat abuse, and he has found It tho universal opinion among them that the most important duty of Congress it to weed out at onco tho fraudulent names on the pension roll. Wo know of no ono who Is opposed to the pay ment of pensions, even moro liberal than tboso now given, to tbo surviving heroes ot our war who wero disabled or aro Incapacitated for work. But Ibo honest, sensible, tax-paying citizens of every community look with disgust upon the able-bodied frauds who have for years since tho war drawn thousandi of dollars from the Treasury while engaged In regular occupa tions, and having no disability. Some of theto men are not content with being tupportod by tho publlo on the ground of in capacity for work; but, whilo getting tho money because presumably unable to work, they want every office In sight on the ground of the pa trlotloaervtcos they hnvo rendered their country. In thtt community there are men who have held lucrative posts in tho Federal service In Washington and In the Custom noute almost continuously since tho war, who havs during the whole time drawn large pensions for disa bility. One man in this county hat been Post master, member of the Legislature, held on office in tho postal service requiring great strength and enduranoe, filled a dozen other oflloes, and Is regarded as ono of the strongest men phytloally In tho county, and yet hs has been drawing a pension for years. I could go on and cite dozens of eases In this neighborhood alone In which tome ot the strongest and hardest-working men havo been regularly drawing pensions for alleged disabili ties, which either never existed or are entirely disconnected with their service in tho army. The pension roll should bo a roll of honor, and apenslonerought to bo proud to proclaim far and wldo tho fact that ho is receiving from the Gov ernment a pension for honorable wounds, or because ho wat unable to tupport himself or hit family, in the tervlce of hit country. But in these dayt it It considered an Intuit to tho veterans to suggest that their names be pub ltshed, so that their neighbors may unite In honoring them for what they havo dono and suffered for our glorious country. Koep up tho fight until tho names are pub lished, so that we can all learn what our Gov ernment is doing for the worthy and who aro tbo frauds that aro receiving dishonestly the monoy which we would gladly pay to those worthy ot the honor of being on tho pension roll.

Dun 8m: la reply to your favor ot Nor. 11. 1 wish to state that I did receive aome blank papers from you. to be Oiled out regarding pensions. It I remem ber correctly. It stated at the bottom ot the paper tbat It I had no claim on the Government for a pen sion, I was to turn the papers over to somebody else. I have no claim and, therefore, turned them over. I cannot conoetve for the lite ot me why yoa wish every man who served during the war to make a claim upon the United States Government for a pension. I am able to take care ot myself, If I lost both my legs and arms, but could earn money enough for ray self support, I certainly should never ask the Government to pay me for patriotism. I contend that Corporal Tanner, who receives S72 a month for the loss of both his legs, has no right to that amount, because be ts able to support himself.
