net Ion. tlcw of kindred sympathies and
Antipathies of race, In u word all tho
Indefinable forces connoted by the wonl
cntltncnt, will play an Important, at
tunes a decisive part. For the competl
tlon between Slav and Teuton which has
for hkcs been carried on under various
firms nnd flatjs Is now become keen un
riiPKUlsed rivalry which a mere local In
cident may nt any moment transform
Into n sanguinary conflict. The Ger
man has Joined Issues with the Slav.
Hardly were the tidings, of the first
signal victories spread over Kurop
than the Interested nations felt Instinc
tively that a new, a fateful era was
hejtlnnlnt;. Ausniii-Hunnary hurriedly
mobilized her armies to guard against
surprises and "devised the scheme of an
Independent Albania to serve ns a
permanent barrier between the Slnv
peoples and the Adriatic. Germany raWcd
her total permanent military strength
to s;i,000 and levied an unprecedented
war tajc on her subjects In peace time,
thus emphasizing In unwonted fashion
the dancer with which In the eye of her
political leaders the new order of things
confronts her. Italy, despite her osten
tatious friendship for the Slavs, for
bade the Serbs to nnnex the Albanian
const, well knowing that once a Slav
nation, however tiny, obtains n foothold
unywhere It Is sure to keep It, in virtue
of Its solidarity with Itussla. The Slavs
themselves were highly conscious of
their triumph and then showed it. Tn
Ituwian the Pan-Slavlst movement re
eled a new and unparalleled Impetus.
Bulgaria, which under King Ferdinand
ha become skilled In running with
the hare and hunting with the hounds
In playing off Austria agalrt P.u-eia
find levying contributions on them both,
i-et Europe's admonitions nt naught and
resumed hostilities in spite of suasion
and covert threats. Her spokesman,
Pir Daneff. who behaved like a favour
and Hlsmarck rolled Into one. treated
the mbawadors In London as (iulllver
dealt with the people of Ulliput. When
tie men venerable and amiable among
thm adjured him to wait a few day
mger until Kurope received on nnswerj
from the Porte the Unitarian empire
bnlldT exclaimed: "ou have Had your
answer, take It and be contented, It
w is a f'dl weighted kick "
Wh .Muntenmrii Wns Hold.
The capture of Adrlanople was an
other Instance of the wayward wilful
ness ..f Hulgarla and the rising tide of
Siausm That military operation was
unnei'S.ir. because aimless. Adrl
anople would hive been handed oer to
Hu'sarui by the Powers; had In fact
oen allotted to her already without
.he trouble of taking It. Hut the push
tng little nation Insisted on capturing
It bv storm, partly for the' sake of mill
tnrv" prestige, although the font was not
a. hl'ed without the help of the Serbs,
fcnd partly because she harbored tho
plan of seizing Constantinople nnd rais
ing tn- cross above the crescent on the
minaret of Aya Sophia.
Hut the most Impressive of nil th
token? of the Slnv triumph was the
(induct of little MontenegTo. She
mapped her fingers nt nil Europe and
went her wicked way blithely. The
naval demonstration organized by th
sreat Powers was but a pageant for
the King and his surviving subjects.
His policy was in no wise affected by it.
And the aim of that policy was to set
tho great Pownrs by the earn and then
to watch, wait nnd come In with the
winning side. And Hervla trod tne
fame path as Montenegro, but much
more warily. 8hj despatched reenforco
ments to Scutari in spite of the friendly
expostulations of Austria-Hungary, her
artillery wrought havoc among the
Turkish and Albanian defenders of tho
stronghold and her money supplied her
ally with life's necessaries for a time.
No nation would have bohaved In this
odd fashion without a powerful pro
lector to fall back upon. A peoplo of
J3O."0O souls all told, who might be
added to or taken from the population
of New Tork almost without causing a
perceptible change there, would never
have dared to provoke the Austrian
Empire and brave the wroth of all Eu
rope unless It felt strong In the
strength of a powerful friend and part
ner. And that was Montenegro's trust
and Europe's fear. She reckoned upon
the support of the Russian Kmplre.
And up to a certain point her calcula
tion proved correct. Russia helped her
In every feasible way and In spite of
every possible discouragement. If sho
did not risk war for the sake of her
tiny alster it was not because she would
not There were other and more
cogent reasons. For one thing Monte
negro would have gained nothing by
such a campaign. Thorefore It may be
Inferred that whenever Russia can go
to this extreme for any of her younger
sisters without risking vital Interests
of her own she will.
Looking at the matter from the ordi
nary politician's angle of vision one
might havo conjectured that Russia
would turn her back upon the high
landers of the Black Mountain because
they had violated their undertaking not
to 4cl4ra war without Russia's fore
knowledge and approval; also because
they refused in Moii ,u
of Scutari In spite of Murope's promises I
tn iiiii' iin. iinii iriafit l . ........ n..i
were putting forth nil possible exertions
to etitntiKin t.r protectress, Husl, In
n war with Austria-Hungary.
The Slnvs Airnkoiirrf.
Hut In spite of nil these grounds for
leaving (he .Montenegrins to their fate,
the Car magnanimously despatched
food for the hungry population, gave
the full support of his dlplnmiicv to the
territorial claims of the little kingdom
and was ready to obtain compensation
for Scutari If the King uud Govern
ment would but rnlse the siege. Whv?
Hecnuse Russian diplomacy feels bound
to uphold each nnd every Slnv State
against Its non-Slnv neighbors, even at
the cost of sacrifices to herself. Of this
moral obligation the little Slav nations
nre conscious. And not tho nations
only. Tho ethnic fragments scattered
over Austria, Hungary, Germany, are
nil thrilled by the new Slav spirit. Thcv
feel themselves members of the great
tnco whose day of triumph has dawned.
However unenviable their present plight
may bo or seem, they are persuaded that
It will one day be bettered by the
mighty sister whose sons nre as the
sands of the sea and whose kindred are
waxing mighty In the south.
The Serbs in Hungary, the Ilosnlnks,
Czechs, Slownks, Ituthenlans nnd Poles
In Austria all felt their hearts beat
MtUcker and louder on receiving tid
ings of their kinsmen's victories. Plans
that hnd lain In nbennce for ears,
hopes that had slumbered for nes nnd
dreams that had been dispelled hy the
prose of realities were nil revived. The
Czechs in Hohemla becnuse mure ob
structive ond less tractable than ever,
the Slavs of Dnlmatla more Importu
nate, the Serbs of Hosnta nnd lletze.
cnvlnn nnd the Croatlnns, who are all
men of the same race, talked more con
lldently than ever of the Impending
triumph of the principles of nationalism,
and the Pnnslnvlsts In Russia applauded
Austria-Hungary, whose Slav inhabi.
units outnumber the Germans and are
still Increasing nnd multiplying more
rapidly than their rivals, was thus con
fronted not so much with an ugly proh.
lorn ns with nn Immediate danger. Ac
cordingly she mobilized nnd made ready
for emergencies. And Germany, whose
own cause was In danger, supported
Slav Klrment (inlnlnjr Mrennth.
For nges the Slav element In south
eastern Kurope has been Imperceptibly
gaining tho upper hand and ousting the
Germans nnd Itnllans thence. Its force
lies not In a higher culture nor In greater
push nor In tlner ethical flbro but solely
In that unparalleled fecundity which Is
one of the characteristics of the race

Sixty years ago the cltv of Prague

despite the strenuous aii.l systematic
efforts of Prussia to keep down the In
crease of the population nnd to deprive
the landowners of their estates by
legalized expropriation. Indeed in some
respects Poland still exists as a nation.
It possesses a working class, an agri
cultural class, nn Intellectual class, cap
tnlns of Industry and n noblllt.v. Some
people would fee) tempted to gn a step
further nnd nfllrm that it Ins also a
secret goi eminent, hut It would he
more correct to say that It possesses
lenders and n national policy. It Is
waiting. Politically Poland Is but slum
bering. One day she Is sure to bo
awakened, not by any great hearted
statesman but hy an egotistical Gov
ernment In straits.
When the conflict between Slnv nnd
Teuton hns become sharp nnd Intense,
If not before. Russia will cut the gall
ing cords that bind Poland to St. Peters
burg. This act of emancipation would
strengthen the Ozarriom and embarrass
Prussia beyond words. For the centre
of Poland lies In Russia nnjl the Poles,
once they Join hands In friend
ship with the subjects of the Czar, will
direct their efforts to emancipate their
kindred from Germany. They will be.
comn the vanguard of Slavdom in the
northeast nnd east of Kurope. And It
should not bo forgotten that the loss
of tho Polish provinces would be Im
measurably morn painful to Germany
than to Russia. This would stlil
be true even If the loss consisted only
In tho concession of home rule to this
gifted Slnv people, for the Germans,
who In tho Polish districts of Prussia
are now unable to hold their own,
would then be literally absorbed by the
Slav element. And If tho Polish prov
inces were amputated Germany would
be hurt dangerously, for Koenlgsberg
and Rreslau nre almost on the lioun
dnry line of the German nnd Slnv lan
guages. If thereforo wn'r broke out
between these two empires each of them
would be sure to have a cut and dried
solution of tho Polish riuestlnn ready
Germany's would bo applicable only
after a signal victory, for It would be
annexation of Russian Poland; Russia's
would doubtless be tried before the first
shot was fired and would take tho form
of home government for tho Poles.
And for Hint very reason neither em
pire Is likely to launch delibernlely Into

London, April 29. It Is reported from
Vienna that 80,000 Austrian troops have
already assembled near the Montenegrin

There are no developments ns to the
movements of Kssad Pasha There Is
great danger In Vienna over his sup
posed treachery, but reports ns to the
circumstances leading up to his surren
der are extremely contradictory. The
commentator of the tolly TrU'traph b
lleves that he acted honorably and that
he was obliged to surrender becnuse of
lack of food and ammunition. He also
thinks that the complications growing
out of Kssad Pasha's actions, although
unpleasant, can be unravelled with the
help of Turkey.
This writer says the number of men
in Kssad Pasha's Albanian army has
been exaggerated. There are not more
than 1,000 men, and he believes that
the Porte will soon recall them and also
the icmniuits of PJavld Pasha's army,
which it was reported was going from
Macedonia to Join Kssad Pasha's forces.
nn the other hand, the Vienna news,
papers vie with ea-'h other In printing
stories ngnlnst Kssail Pasha. Among
tliee are tales that Kssad smilingly
welcomed Prince Danllo when he en
tered Scutari with the Montenegrin
troops and mnde n speech to the in
habitants in which he urged them to
become ond Montenegrins. He told
them that they had been brutally op.

mutinied when they heard that the
surrender of Scutari was Impending.
