The announcement that England ?md Japan have practically reached an un fVjj!Z^tandiaK which will probably result in an" alliance tor the preservation of the balance of power in the Orient, is by no means surprising. The interests of the two countries in the far east are almost identical, and the natural ene? mies of England have shown a great deal of hostility toward Japan. In fact, they have snatched from her bands the results of her recent triumph over China. Neither Japan nor Great Bri? tain can treat with indifference the encroachments of the Russian Czar and the young war lord of Germany upon the territory of defenceless and degen? erate China. The growing power of these two ambitious young montu'ebs is a menace to both England and Japan. Therefore, It is quite natural that an "understanding" should be reached be? tween the twit against the common foes, of both nations. Getting mixed up in this Eastern question, which has placed the great powers of Europe on the verge of a political volcano, is one of the most serious considerations in connection with the permanent retention of the Philippine Islands by the United States. If they may he disposed of at a fail price it would seem to be the part of wisdom to get rid of them. If tin questions which are eternally rising in reference to the Eastern problem keep the European powers guessing it is almost impossible to calculate the trouble and expense oriental posses? sions would necessarily entail upon this country. A correspondent of the esteemed New York Sun makes a stirring appeal for what he calls the "telectroscope." In plain English he wants an instrument by means of which persons talking over a telephone line may enabled to gaze at each other?literally, look each other "straight in the eye." From a mechanical point of viey such an in? strument would undoubtedly be a great triumph, but we fail to see any practi? cal utility in the scheme. As a matter of fact, there are some reasons which might be used against the proposition. For instance, it is some times difficult for those who are conversing over the line to make their words clearly under? stood, and those who have witnessed the antics of one conversing under such conditions can scarcely be impressed with the benefits which would accrue from a facial accompaniment to the impatience so often manifested when things go wrong. For all practical pur? poses the old style 'phone Is all righl. If il is necessary or desirable to see the Person lo whom one is talking railroad fare is cheap. If the Spanish government wishes to win battles without lighting and to de? vastate the terrible yankee pigs with? out the loss of a single Spaniard, it should make arrangements to pacify the redoubtable ex-Captain-General .Weyler and annex his war typewriter Even Dewey luck could scarcely hop< to stand before that devastating whirl wind of verbal power. It might not be out of place for oui Canadian friends to drop a bint ti Mr. Dubosc to the effect that be is nt more welcome than his esteemed chief If Admiral Sampson wishes to ac compllsh anything he should place him self beyond communication with th Naval Board of Strategy. The optimistic country correspond ei?? are now making a desperate ef fora to resurrect the recently dismem toertU peach crop. , NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.
