BBBJ West Point anil Aiinnpolls. BBBJ Tho ginduution of tho year's classes at BBBJ the Military and Kaval Academies and tho BBBJ examinations for entrance have called ut- BBBJ tontlon to tho need of maintaining a larger BBBJ number of radets at both Institutions. Tho BBBJ recent reorganization of tho line of tho BBBJ navy added about a bundled ollleors, whllo BBBJ tho enlisted force of tho lobular army as at BBBJ present constituted Is more than twice as BBBJ largo as It nat before tho war with Spain. BBBJ Tho addition of two legiinents to thnni- BBBJ tlllery and tho lucreaso of the infantry by BBBJ giving It tho three-battalion organization BBBJ inay bo regarded as permanent changes re- BBBJ quiring nioro officers than woio needed be- BBBJ fore these changes wero made. BBBJ Tho May examinations at Annapolis sup- BBBJ plied an unusually small class, and It BBBJ seems clear that, with tho Increase In BBBJ tho number and nggregato tonnage of our BBBJ ships In commission, moia officers are de- BBBJ blrable, and tho Naval Academy will bo re- BBj lledttpon to supply them. 'With tho great BBBJ additions to tho Academy buildings now BBBJ ( going on, which will amount practically to BBBJ tho reconstruction of tho whole establlsh- BBBJ ment, thoro will bo quartets andothorfacll- BBBJ Itlca for over 500 cadets, or nearly doublo BBBJ as many as are now allowed by law. BBBJ In tho army tho need of ofllcers is cm- BBBJ phasizod by the recent graduation of a class BBBJ at West Point ahead of tho regular time, on BBBJ account of tho Immediate demands of tho BBJ j Bervlce. Hut with our possessions In tho BBBJ Antilles, tho Philippines, tho Ladronos and BBBJ Hawaii requiting gatiisons beyond what BBBJ wab necessaiy a. year ago, and with tho BBBJ i number of new forts and new and costly BBBJ guns on tho homo coasts, It Is clear that wo BBBJ must always maintain a laiger army than BBBJ that of tho early part of 181)8. BBBJ It may bo ui god that the proper number BBBJ 1 f cadets cannot bo ascertained until tho BBBJ j legislation for tho lcorganballou of tho BBBJ army is completed. Theioaie, no doubt, BBBJ advantages in making these two changes BBBJ patts of one system; but, on tho other BBBJ t hand, since it take four years to preparo BBBJ a cadet for commission, any Increase in tho BBBJ number of the regular army would requite BBBV the commissioning of Chilian appointees BBBfj to supply Immediate needs, unless thoro BBBJl should nlte.idy ho an oxtin number of BBK cadets preparing at West Volnt. Some ex- BBBJl cellent material for oflleeis has been (level- BBBji oped In tho volunteer regiments during BBBJ! our wars with Spain and Acrixu.po, but BBBJi a permanent supply fum" tho Military BBBJ Academy must bo ptovided for. BBBJ In West Point and Annapolis the country BBBJ has two splendid schools, which liavo been BBBi f benefit beyond computation to tho army BBBJl ami navy. Wo are now at a point whero BBBJi wo should educate still more ofllcers for BBBJ) toth services. BBBJ A Request from n Woman Denied. BBBJ Miss Fanny I, An hot of Cambridge In BBBj Massachusetts asks us to publish tho text BBBJ of an "untl-Impeilallst" petition to tho BBBJ President prepared for the signatures 0f BBB women specifically. " We, tho women of BB3 tho United .States, it statts out, but to tho BBBJ credit of American women it misrepresents BBBJ totally their spit It, for it is simply a feml- BBBj nine device to help along tho grotesque, BBB; Impoitlnent, and treacheious gang at BV Boston which styles Itself tho "Antl-Im- BBB ' perlallst League." BBBi Tho petition Miss AnnoT sends Is not BBBht- worth pi luting In The Sun, for It Nun- BBBJ ' win thy of tho attention of any intelligent BBB man or woman. It ptotests "ngnlnst tho BBB war of conquest Into vh,eh our country BB. has been plunged in the Philippine Nl- BW anils;" but theto Is no such war. Our sol- BBB diets theio nie simply leslsting rebellion BBB againbt tho authority of tho United States, BBB provoked and conducted by a man who has BBB arrogated dictatorship to himself and does BBB ' not icprescnt tho sentiment of the great BBB mass of tho natlv cs. BBB Tho petition goes on in an attempt to BBB Justify Itself by quoting from our Deehu.i- BBB tlon ot Independence tho phrases that "all BBB men aro created free and equal and that BBB they nro endowed with cettaln Inallenablo BBB. rights," and that (loveinments derive BBBJ their " just iiowets fioin tlio consent of tlio BBB. governed." TI1.1t geuet.ill.atlou, already BBBL worked to di nth. has been nw-K nn this pctl- BBB? j lion uses itfoi thepuiposiofexeu-.iiigi'veiy BBJ I rebellion against the authoilty of tint State, BBB F as, for instance, tho attempt nt secession in BBJ 1801. At the tliuothe Declaiatlouof I111I1- BBB 1 pendonoo was put forth, moteovet, tlieio HBJ ' was In tho Ameiloan colonies 110 equality of BBB rights recognized as Inherent in nature or bbI ' BBB bbM i lnallonablo by the law, and thore was no In tention on the part of tho revolutionists to grant nny. Peoplo without tho requlslto proporty qualification were shut out from voting and thereby niado distinctly un equal, Slavery existed and was protectod by law, and Itoontlnued tooxlst forncarlya century afterward, and was only abolished Incidentally to the civil war nnd purely as n war measure. The referenco In the petition to tho Decla ration of Independence, accordingly, Is with out pertinence, and It comes with tho less reason fiorn women, for thoy nro hMII doborted from Joining In tho "consent of tho governed." Thoy hnvo no say on tho subject, nro not consulted, but nro compelled to submit to govern ment without their consent at tho dicta tion of men. " Those, eternal truths," of which Miss Annor'H petition speaks, there fore, have no application to her. 8ho must submit to Ihi governed w bother shoconsents or dissents. Tho Declaration of Indepen dence does not reeognlzo her oxlstenco nmong those fiom whoso consent tho "Just powets" of government aro derived. It Ignores her altogether ns a factor of tho problem nnd ttcnts her simply as a crea ture tube governed In the way men think best. We do not deny tho expediency of this nileof mnseullno government, but ns It shuts nut women from tho "Inallenablo rights," It would seem to bo reasonable for Miss A11110T nnd her "nnti-lmperlnllst" sisters to leave to tho men "antl-Imperlal-Ists" tho attempt to justify treason by tho generalization of tho Doolaiatlon of In dependence. It Is the obv lous duty of tlm United States to provide tho Phillpplno Islands with a good and tecuro government, for they nro now under our authority and we nro respon sible forthem to civilization. I.Hactly what form that government will tnko must be de termined by tlmo nnd experience: that It will evoirtunlly bo In strict accordance with American political principles is as Inevit able as that meantlmo und afterwnrd It will conduce to tho liberty nnd welfaro of tho Inhabitants to an Infinitely greater degreo than has dono any other which they liavo ever had. Hut before a just and or derly government for tho Philippines can bo established It Is manlfcbtly nocessaty that armed resistance by an unrepresentative- bund of tho natives shall bo sutiduod. riist of all, there must bo penco and order, and the sole purpose of our military opera tions Is to compel such tranquillity by put ting down the lawless effort of this band to obtain despotic control of territory be longing to the United Stntcs. The men nnd women "nntl-lmporlnllsts" nro prnct ically assisting this barbarously re bellious band In w oundlng nnd killing Amor lean soldiers, their own counttymon, who aro hetolcnlly obeying tho orders of their Government in a campaign as great In nat ural dlfllcultles as it Is distinguished In the high moral qualities displayed nnd mili tary ability demonstrated. Tho enterprise of Miss Ahdot nnd her men assistant is tieasonablo, Infamous. Wo should an soon think of assisting miscreants to poison tho wells from which our soldiers In tho Philip pines drink ns of giving nny nld or coun tennnco to this Boston plot to subject them to their Filipino enomles. Alas, that an American woman should liavo been deluded Into abetting suuh treachery 1 Canadian Comments on the Joint nigh Commission. Tho prospects of tho Joint High Commis sion aro discussed with candor nnd liberal ity In tho Cunadiim Magazine by Mr. John Ciumrov, ono of tho Commissioners and also a leading Liberal member of the Do minion Parliament. To him, also, has been attributed an article of similar tenor pub lished In tho Xorth American Review. No render of theso papeis can doubt that, if views equally rcnsonablo and conciliatory wero held by tho Canadian community nt large, an agreement upon some of tho sub jects In dispute between tho United States and Canada would bo speedily reached. Whether reciprocity In trade telatlons will over bo rntlllcd by the United States Is n different question. By tho equitable tono of his article, Mr. Cli uii.ton has given offenco to some of his countiymen. Tho Canadian Tories, who aro vexed at tho relatively cordial relations now existing betweon tho United States and Gient Britain, nnd who gladly would see them Intel rupted, denounce hlin with much bitterness for his approal of those lelntlous, nnd Insist that ho ought to re sign his place on tho commission, for thu reason that tho good will cxpressod by him for tho American republio Is, as they assert, Inconsistent with loyalty to his nativo land. Mr. Chuilton expressed regret that tho provincial legislature of Ontario should hav 0 laid an embargo on tho export of rough lumber to tho United States, and had suggested n doubt as to Its legal compe tence to Imposo such a prohibition. Ho also pointed out that thoJolntHighCommisslon had lieen embarrassed by tho passago of an Allen Labor law, tho rcfciilt and obvious puiposoof which '"as to exclude American citizens fiom British Columbia. It Is for these criticisms on provincial legislation passed by Canadian Jingoes, who desire tho failure of tho attempt to settlo long standing controversies between tho United States and Canada, that Mr. CitAiir.TON Is stigmatised by tho 7'oroiiro llorM as a traitor. He ought, according to that news piper, to bo " cashiered from the commis sion and called befoto tho bar of tho Ot tawa Hoiiso of Commons." It will be somo time, wo Imagine, befoto tho Tuionto World' opinion is adopted by the Govern ment of which tail Wii.rniD LAuniKtt Is tho bead, or by tho majotlty of the Canadian people, who, above nil other things, desire that linpiovenient of trado relations with the United States which is Mr. C'11 Milton's primal y aim. Xo Canadian has ever presented a moro plausible aigunient for such an Improve ment than was put foiward by him and his fellow C nunlb-,inneis in Washington. Tho Uso w Inch they made of recent statistics 10 Ueeted nut .1 little credit on their forenslo blc 111. Thoy succeeded In piovlng thnt, oven under tho existing tai If)-, which aro some tlmes spoken of as If they wcio mutually prohibitory, not only does a laige trade ex ist between tho United States and Cnnadn, but It Is far more prolltablo to the former than to tho latter couutiy. Thus, in 18U8, the total Inipotts Into Canada fiom tho United States amounted to fO.nsv.OOO, whereas tho expoits from Cannda to the United Stntes worn only $nr,4rt 1,000. Moreover, the aveiago rnto of duty Im posed by tho Ciiiindlnn tin Iff on the total iinpoiti fiom the I nlted States was t.05 pei cent., while the average Ameilcan duty levied 011 the total Imports from t'nnada was foi tie same vear Ul.Ts pm t cut. That lsl.1s.1y, less than (1,000,000 Canadians I bought last year tvvlco as much ! fiom 7,1,000,000 Americans ns tho latter dtd fiom the fornior, and taxed It only half , as much. Of f leo Imports Into Canada 72.0 i ) per cent came from tho United States, only 17.7 from Great Britain, and 0.8 from all other countries. Canada gives tho United States a free list of over 1 10,000,000 worth of goods, and gets, In return, a free list of only $14,000,000. Lot us sco, now, how tho casp stood with regard to farm products on the ono hand nnd manufactured articles ou the other. In 1808 tho United Slates took from Canada only $5,320,000 worth of farm products, nnd sold to her $15,000,000 worth of tho same. In the sntuo year Canada Importod from the United States $nr,o00,000 worth of American manufac tures, or $0,000,000 moro than tho valuo of tho manufactures Itnpoited from Great Britain. This, notwithstanding tho lower rate of duty accorded to English goods under tho so-called Jubilee tariff. Finally, tho Importance of the Canadian market to tho Unitod States la summed up as follows: Our total exports In 1808 to Mexico, Central Atnorlca, tho West Indies and tho wholo of South Amorlca, which countries have an nggregato population of 54,000,000, amounted to $80,780,000, whllo less than six million Canadians took $80,537,000 of United States goods. These flguies nro taken from thn artlclo In tho North American Review, which Is ascribed, rightly or wrongly, to Mr. Crahlton, but most of them wero used by him and his follow Commissioners dining tho lato at tempt to arrive nt Improved tariff relntlons In Washington. Thero Is no doubt that tho trade between tho Unitod States and Canada might bo greatly enlarged by n reduction of tho duties levied by us on tho farm, foiest and mlno products of tho Dominion, and by a corresponding concession to American manufactures. But Mr. Ciiaulton Is Jus tified In tcxpiesslug apprehensions that, even If such a reclpiocal atrangement could bo brought about by the commission, It would fall to bo sanctioned by tho needed two-thirds majotlty of tho Ameilcan Sen ate. There Is a widespread and deep seated feeling on this side of tho border that, so long as wo keep up tho tariff bars, tho arousing of an li resistible movement on tho part of tho Canadians for an nexation to the United States Is only a question of time. Lord Eloix believed nnd said thnt only by tho leelprooity treaty which ho effected was the success of such a movement nveitod morothan forty years ago. Tar-slghted Canadians aio ns certain now as they wero then that they liavo nothing to hopo for fiom Great Britain. Thoy have tried tho experiment of admit ting British manufactures at rates lower than those Imposed upon similar goods from othor countries. They have secured absolutely nothing in return. Thoy havo no chance, as they now must reeognlzo, of persuading oven tho present imperialists Government of Great Britain to admit Canadian food stuffs to the markets of tho United Kingdom upon terms moro fnvor nblo than thoso Imposed upon like staples from the United States. Tho ono suggestod alternative for tho market to be gained through admission to our Union has thus been proved to Tjo a drenm. The Struggle for Asia Minor. Beecnt news from Constantinople con veys tho Impression that tho question of tho Near East that has vexed Europe for tho best part of tho century Is again coming to tho front. Slnco tho Armenian massa cres of 1805 and 1800 tho elements of disorder then lot looso in Turkey havo re mained unchecked, and repoita nrtiving dally at Constantinople aro said to show that the social, economic, and administra tive condition of the whole of Asia Minor Is worse than ever. Xo hope nppe.us to bo entei tallied that nny change for the better can eomo under Turkish rule, nnd the di rect inferenco Is that foreign Intervention In somo form Is neeessniy, and must come soon at thnt, If the country Is to bu snved fromthe worst eonsiqucncesof tho nnarchy now prevailing. Tho Sultan himself Is fully alive to tho dangers of tho situation, but ho Is powei less to control It, and awaits with tho liveliest apprehension tho lesult of tho return of tho Armenian refugees from the Busslan Trniis-Caucasus to their homes, fiom which thoy fled during tho tlmo of terror. As n precnutlon ho has ordered prepaiotions for theenllstmentof thewholo arm-bearing population of tho empire, something undertaken only In view of n great national emergency. Another event has created tho liveliest sensation In political clnles In Constanti nople. This is tho ngi cement reached be tween tho Deutsche Bank of Berlin nnd tho Anglo-French Imperial Ottoman Bank, now more French than English, to join their forces for tho prolongation of the Annlnllnn railways to tho Persian Gulf and In other directions. In older to piepaio the way for tho cnterpilse, a special commission of inquiry, nt tho head of which Is the Geinian Consul-Genoral nt Constantinople, Is nbout to traverse tho country to study tho economic conditions of tho Tigris and Euphrates valleys. The Itussian Government found that tho routo selected from Slvns to Baghdad ran too nenr to tho boundniles of what is de scribed In n German paper as tho Ifusslan sphero of Interest, but offered no objection to nu alternative lino further west nnd south. As n lino from Koiileh neriiss tho Tnimifl Mountnlns to Bliedjlk, on the Eu phiates, presents many and formidable ob stacles, It lb thought piobnblnthat a middle lino will be adopted. Tho Sultan, however, would prefer for military leaaons tho moro northt lly of the three routi sand would like n branch to Eilnglilan, tho headquarteis of the Fourth Aimy Corps, west of Lro 1011m. It Is for this reason that the Russian Government objects to the consti uctlon of tho northern line, dlstuiblng, ns It would be, to the existing mllltnry conditions on both sides of tho fiontler In Asia to tho piejudieo of liiissia. But Itussian inteiests nto not tho only ones Involved In the proposed extension of tho Anatolian railways. The English Stnyi-nn-Aldin Itnllvvay Company is in danger of being bqueeed out by tho Fianeo-German combination, which alms at bilnglng all tho Anatolian railways Into ono system. Taking udvantugo of tho financial embiu inssments of tho English line, tho liermnti Anatolian Compnny mndo it certain proposals favor able to the debenture, nnd bond holders. They, however, wero rejected, because tho loutrol of tho lino would havo passed out of tho hands of tho English company. 'Hie rianco-German syndicate will now, it Is re potted, tty to bring the English company to terms by establishing a late-cutting campaign on tho rival lines uinlei tlieli con trol. In thn menntlnio an application for a loucesslon to build a lailwny fumi the Syrian coast to Baghdad has been made from London, but Conftantinoplo pnlaeo circles piedlet that It will not bo gi anted, thoGorinau liitluenc being useilagalnst It So tho stiugglo for supremacy In Asia Minor troos on, to bo ecttlod whenevor tho mlsrulo of tho Turk provides tho opportunity. Tlio Dinner at Quantico, Tho Hon, AiiTiiun Pue GonsuN has sont out his 001 ps of billposters, and, doubtless, believes himself to bo tho favorite candi date of tho Maryland anti-Bryan Demo crats ou tho first ballot. Ho Is mistaken, ns reports of tho Turtle, or, in local speech, Turklo dinner at Quantico last week show. Tho " Gazetteer" Is not very eommunlcatlvo about Quantico, only tell Ing us that Quantico contains a lum ber yaul nnd threo chut dies." Our es teemed Maryland contemporary, tho Salia bury Courier, Is more satisfactory, and lotsus know that Quantico, situated at tho head of Quantico Creek, "has always been a favor Ito rendezvous for politicians and political meetings, and is a kind of depot for all tho good things In tho eating vvny In which tho west side of Wicomico abounds." Among these good things aio tho wild duck, musk rat, oystor, dlamondback terrapin, whlto peich, quail and rabbit. Finally, continues our geographer, "Quantico Is noted for Its mild and equable climate, Its picturesque seenoiy, and Its largo production of mud turtles." On account of tho turtles tho scenery Is mado 111010 pietinosquo every year by a Deniocratlo dinner known as tho Turklo Dinner. " It Is an unwritten lulo," Bnysour contemporary, "that ho who wants a Deni ocratlo nomination must bo at tho Turklo Dinner either In porson or by proxy." Last Wednesday one hundred Democrats went to tho Quantico Turklo Dinner. Hun gry Neck, Baircn Creek, Tyaskln, Quan tico sent forth their fnvorlto sons. Col. Bill Majohs was out for turkle, and so woio Constable Waller and Sheriff Dabh tia.Ti and UioToadvinkh. Tho Chicago plat form was discussed, and so was tho din ner, which consisted of boiled turklo, ftlod tinkle, frlensseed turkle, pot-pled turklo nnd every other form of turklo known to men or gods. Ico cream followod the turklo just ns tho nutl-Trust lsuo Is nddod to the Chicago platform. At last thoikdtlnt'd Maryland candidate, bar IIhyan, was piodueed. It was aud Is Capt. BfShKti Smiiii of Tyaskln, who nto :I0." turkle eggs A man who can ent 305 turklo eggs can 6wallow tho Chicago platform a good deal moio easily than tho Hon. Annum Pun Goiiman can. It Is gratifying to observe that our Con sular sorvt, e. ns a whole, shows a hlah desruo of Intolllmneo and zeal In the collection of accurate statistical duta. Thcvi our Consuls occasionally distance forolcn com pilurs of trado figures Is worth remarking. One of tho British annuals, for Instance. In Its edition for ISUi). says of the trado of I.lborla: "No statistics are available, but the exports and Imports com bined probably do not exoesd 500,000 " The latest issue of " Commercial Relations." how ever, has tables prepared by our Minister to Liberia, giving, at least approximately, the nature, uuantlty and value of the Imnorts from four leading countries for thu Uveal year 1800-07. and the nature, quantity, valuo and destination of the exports. "It may bo that tho Democratic party Is to be "born again,' " writes Mayor Ham Jonfs of 'Joledo: "Is to bo Inspired with a moral purpose to lend tho people out of the dis tress of present social conditions." The Hon Ham Jonf.k will bo convinced that tho Demo crats party has been born ainlti and Insplrod with a moril purpose if It will nominate him for Governor of Ohio. As wo believed, tho report that Gen.

The Jews, under a freo Government, will make of Palestine the commercial centre of the Orient That "tho many alalia of prosperous JewUh merchants on Uroadwai are not Hkoly to bo removed to Jerusalem:" tint "the multitude of Jew brokers In Wall street will not leave the tickers in that llunnclal mart to set up a stock exchange In tho Holy City. 'is logically Obvi ous: wherever tho Jows prosper they will re main, and thoy prosper and nro unpereecuted In Amorlca nnd Knifland, and nowhere else As 11 solution of tho Jewish question, would you have tho 4,0()0,()(H) Jews nt present llv Inc. or rather dying. In Russia, tho 1,000.000 Polish Jews, tho 1,000.000 Austrian Jews, tho fiJHl.(KH) Iloumunlan Jows (not to speak of the JOU.imiO or 4(10,01)0 German and Prench Jews would you havo them all come here, and by Interinsrrhge with the Christian population llnally melt nway. and. from a distinct body among tho peoples of the earth, become an anonymous, a neutral element of the Atnerlcnn nation ? Does not suoh n solution soom by far more Improbable than tho llnal centrali zation In Pnlostlno of that immonsn ma jority of Jews which is persecuted In 1-urapB? They can hardly Intermarry with their persecutors, and in fact are re strained from doing so. that Is to say, from marrying Christians, In almost all the coun tries in which their rights are unprotected and their lives sacrificed. Here In xmerlea tlm Jows progress and prosper, nnd will soon be wholly Identified with the general population of this country But six millions ot Jews aro being persecuted to-day In Euiopo. and Zion ism oilers the most rational plan for their salvation and their regeneration.

Armed with passes from headquarters, early ou tho following morulnit we prcsontcd ourselves at tho boat Iniidliu:. near tho foot of O'llollly street, nnd embarked In ono of thoso tidy llttlo bluu-pnlutcd yawls which almost monopolize the profltablo passcnttcr trnfflcof Havana harbor.

A Spanish revi val of Coleridue's Ancient Mnrlner set tho scrap of dirty ennvas which did duty for a sail, nnd a brisk broeyo carried us swiftly to the foot of the Inellno, which zlurans its way up the stetp and rooky hlllsldu to the rambling fortress ot Cabanas. In something less than a half hour the Professor, an experienced traveller who resented Imposition, had nettled vrhh the boatman. and we hud stalled up tlie ascent. Arrived nt the top, wo baited a in imetit until our papers were examined and nionniiiieed (.
