Now that (General MaeArthur has point- anil son?, it is not Improper to call the attention of the A board of trade to a t .-t u. lamentable error , of I picion of the officially correct attitude if their respective 'governments throughout our difficulties with the Spaniards. Aside from the incidentally pleaim? fact th.it all European nations are now competing with each other .for our friendship, the interesting discovery brought out by the recent discussion is that the people of the United States have "been altogether mistaken in ref erence to the attitude of the German government in 1818. Due, doubtless, to the constantly reiterated statements of the Krglish press, and the great ad vantage which a common language gives the English people in impressing their views upon Americans, It has been generally assumed that the Ocr man government was fur from friendly to the United States during the weeks preceding the Spanish war. The new facts brought out make it necessary to concede that a great injustice ha. been done to the Germans. For his own purposes, evidently. Em peror William has patiently bided hi time for making the facts known. It may be safely assumed that it was the shrewd emperor who insplred the dis cussion of the subject in the European preps Fame weeks ago, a discussion judgment in arranging tne programme for his reception. It should have been a general reception, and not an invitation affair. To be sure, the members or the board who had the matter in charge acted with the best Intentions, and undoubtedly j intended to SL-nd invitations to prar- tically everybody. Uut through some j oversight a large number of citizens j were not !n;td. There should have been a single general invitation to citizens to come and meet the general Instead of being a formal, full-dress i affair in the upstui;s parlors, the re- t ceptlon should have been held in thtj main corridor of the Adams hotel. Slar.y old soldiers and other citizens wished to pay their respects to Gen eral MaeArthur, but when they learned that evening dress was the proper cos-tume they reluctantly remained away. No "reception committee" was which became so general that the . British government ws led to make a , st2.tein.nt in parliament which was in tended to confirm the American l:n- j pression that England was our cnly j friend when war was threatening. The, German government then promptly j took advantage cf the situation, and ; proceeded to make public certain diplo- j j matie notes of which the world in gen- j ! plained from Rerun that after the presentation of the joint net.? to Presi-; dent McKinley from the Kuro;)ean ' ministers in Washington on April 7.

Shipbuilding is almost the only great industry in which our paramountry is still unquestioned, but we do not knjv how long this may continue to be so. Shipbuilding, of course, carries with it supremacy in naval engineering, and practically in all that belongs to the shipbuilders art. It also, in this ease at least anl it may In any analogous cases in th? future carries . with it supremacy upon the ocean. But w iwt of the out look? The United States but a few years aga were producing less than 50.000 tons a year of iron and meel shipbuilding, whereas this year is like ly to give thorn from 350.000 to -400,000 tons. During the last few years many new shipbuilding yards have been built in the United States sume of thi'.rl equal In extent and In the variety and perfection of t'lefr equipment to any thing that is to be found on the CI yd-, the Tyne or the Wear.

This means simply that for eigners had sold in our markets goods to the amount of m ie than V0,0K),COO in excess of their sales the preceding year. Last j-ear agricultural products contributed over 65 per cent of our ex Iorts, as against fi- per cent in 1!0C. The percentage of exports of manu factured products fell off from 30.:w to 17.4S. From this it ap;-ars that in the hist two years the rale-of foreign goods has increas d In our home market, while our sab-s in foreign maikets have s ightly decreased.

The disclosures will serve to clear away much of the feeling of stiffness which has characterized American son- tiinnt toward Germany In recent years. and they will not disturb our relations with our Kngli:;h friends. It has been shown that Lord Pauncefots acted without the knowledge of his govern ment and contrary to Its policy, and that his position was at once repudi ated when the facts became known in T-ondon. The explanation" suggested, and which is quite plausibl in view of Ivord Pouneefote's long record of ef forts to strengthen the friendship be tween the I'nited States and Kngland is, that he was acting in harmony with the personal wishes of Queen Victoria, to whom the queen, regent of Spain had appealed as cne woman to another.

In a lecture at Topeka a few nights izgo. General Fitzhugh Lee defndd the 'retoncentrado poli'-y of Gerern! Weyler. in view of the fact that it was the horrors of the cone enf ati 1:1 camps of Cuba which aroused ih American people t-j a pitch which made war inevitable regardless of the de struction of the Maine, it would be intei esting to hear the comments of the Spanish newspapers which will fol low the confession of General Lee th.at the apparently heartless policy of Weyler was a military necessity. Toor old Spain was out of luck, sur-ly enough. The American Newspaper Publish ers' Association has acted with good judgment in indorsing the efforts of the postofllee department to confine the second-clas mail privilegen to th- publications legitimately entitled to such privileges. It costs the govern ment millions of dollars annually to carry stuff at Second-cla.'S rates which has no right to the privilege, and if the abuse Is stepped th revenues of the department will better bear a re duction of letter postage 10 one cent.
