TINA.1. Parties and partisans will ever cxitt,
and ought to exist in a government
instituted by the people f r the people.
Whenever both or either cease to exist
the patriot rosy well entertain serious
apprehensions lor the perpetuity of
free institutions. It is therefore mr
prising that United States Periston in
pronouncing eulogies on the life and
character of Thomas A. Ilendtlek",
Monday last, should avail themselves
of the cccasioa to vindicate the de
ceaeed statesman from the crime of bo
longing to one of the great political par
tire and being a partisan. Since the
triumph of the Democratic party Mr.
Hendricks has shown to the country
that he) waa a "atal wait," "sturdy"
Democrat, and, of course, be waa to
cuced of being more of a partisan than
a patriot In bit eulogy Mr. Evarts
said : "As to Mr. Iltndricks'a partisan
ship, of which something bad been
said, I can find In history no other mode
of conducting the political affairs of a
great and free people except by great
and firm parties. I believe, therefore,
that the steadfast and intrepid ad
hoaion ts party was a merit." Mr.
(Spcouer said "Mr. Hendricks was,
Leait and tout, a Deruojrat He thor
ough ly believed in his party and in Its
principles. Indeed, I think, if he
might give direction lu our words to.
day, he would bid us say of him that
he was a 'partisan' Ijmo:rat. ' He
rightly thought that politics ahoul 1 be
mtttsr of convict on, and that every
man of firm political f tlth owed it to
himself and country, and 1 1 be a par
tisan in tbir, at least, that he should
labor earnestly in all Gt ways best
suited to his menial make-up and to
his surroundings, to promo'e the suc
cess of the principles in which he be
lieves. To him no prlit'cal partisan
ship, honorable in Iti metboJs, was
offensive. In party he saw only the
instrnmentality through which, and
through which alone, might be
wiought out the triumph of hlsprln
ciples. In active, faithful, tolera
ble party service, he saw, there
fore, devo'.lon lo principle, rot
mere lust for cfllce." In neatly
every eulogy the speaker seened
to think it incumbent on him to de
feud Mr. Hendricks fiont the charge
ot being a partisan. This lounda
strangely is a Democratic government
where parties are eesential to the
perpetuity of free Institutions. In
republic like ours parties constitute
the very essence of free government.
It will be a sad sign when the people
become to indifferent to the great is
sues of the bour, so unobservant of vi
tul public questions, so careleeaof the
momentous interests irivo'.ved in party
contest?, aa to cease lo be partii una. It
will bs a bad sign when the people re
gard parties nod partisans as(evlls to be
shunned and denounced. Tarty spirit
may tun into excess; and partisans
are c ometlmea corrupt. But still both
are indispensable to a republic In a
free country there will be and there
ought to be great contending parties.
In the very nature of things they moat
exist while the Plate is free. There
are no parties in Russia or in China,
though theie is Nihilism in one and
rebellion in the other. Paittcsand a
government of the people are indissol
uble. Parties are checks urou each
other. Their exiitince rimes both on
their (ood behuvior, nnd ccciiioDul
cliingee in the ulrulnicltnt'on of the
government are lor tbe wdfure cf the

Louis Kiel's roil is marching on,
and the harshness and injustice of
John Moodonald'a government toward
him and the balf-breeds are produo
irg a blttur result. An obstinate
Indian war appears tibe approaching
in the Saskatchewan country, as the
India! tribes there are combining to
resist the 'nroads made upon their
lands mi huntlng-groundi. The ex
perience of the Indiana with the
Canadian militia that marched ajainst
P.li 1 has led them to form a very low
entircate of militia fighting qualities.
They believe that if Kiel had pos
se sard a sufficient supply o! ammuni
tion ths result of the militia expedition
would have been very different. It is
considered probable that the Indlaui
of tbe Northwest can put from 0000 lo
8000 men on the raid they are organis
ing. Whether the Dominion govern
ment can put as many men in
the field is regarded as doubt
ful, as 2000 men, and they on
toot, were all that were op
posed to Kiel and his followers.
The country to be tbe scene of contest
Ir, with small exception, in its native
wildnese, and to provide for an im
portant invading force there would be
a formidable undertaking. For their
part, tbe Indians are most at home
where the desolation is greatest.
They, amid those uncultivated regions,
are as the Arabs of tbe Soudan are in
the desert. It is true there is the
Canadian Pacific railway passing
through the country, but to' stop
trcfllo upon this line would be one of
the first thiugs tbe Indians would ac
complish. A? the tribes on our own
territory in Minnesota, Nebraska and
Montana are in full sympathy with
the discontented tribes, and among
them tbe Canadian Indians would
sock refuge if defeated, we can
soe that it is possible that onr own ter
ritory is not without danger of trouble
from the threatened incursion.
To the Indians ths lines that
separate the Arrerican and Canadian
people are no lines at all. The
mlsfoilune is that the settlers would
be liable to all tbe horrors of massacre
and Indian cruelty. They have in
closed lands the Indians regard as their
own, and their presence banishes the
buaTilo and game upon which the In
dians subsist. The proposed extent
of the Indian operations indicate a
war of an importance much beyond
any that boa occurred for from half a
century to a century bock. The Do
minion government has done nothing
to break up the alliance among the
Indians, to satisfy claims, or to coun
teract the ill feeling caused by its hatd
measures toward Riel and his follow
ers. An exchange paper says: "Nei
ther diplomacy nor military prepara
tions has been resorted to hitherto, yet
it is evident that if the danger is as
real as represented, no time should be
lott in meeting it one way or tbe other.
The Indians have reached a stags at
which the old-fashioned gifts and
promises are quite useless. They do
not wsnt reservations, nor allowances,
nor presents. They realize that white
civllisttion is too much for them, and
that they must retire before ll but
being savagee, they have no inclina
tion to submit quietly."
The Berlin treaty signatory powers
appear ditji mined to prevent Greece
going tm a' against ber enemy, Tur
key, yet do not cfler to do the justice
Greece demands and they themselves
had decreed her. In the struggle o!
IS77 on the Ealkuns, Greece armed in
preparation to defend its olaimi to ter
ritory amid the warfare then gcing on.
In deference tttbe pi omises, advice,
and nrgent lemotstrsnces of England
and the other powers, Greece disarmed
and left iterate in the hands ot the
powers. Peaoeably and in good feel
ing it retrained fiom embarrassing
tboe powers by further complicating
e x'ti t'ng difficulties. When the Berlin
conference mef, instead ot respect for
its compliance with the wishes and
policy of the powers, ths Greeks
found the turbulent and warlike re
garding them with contempt because
they bni drawn no sword and fired no
gun. The conference itself showed no
reopect for the justice of their claims
1 1 territory held from them by
Turkey, but contemptuously al
lotted them a small extension of
their frontier in Hpirus. When the
cocierence wai over Turkey refused
t oby it i decision, and it wai only
n!ter parleying and procrastination
that, by a'd ot ttrong preaare from
Mr. Gladttine, they got a little over
ta'.f of what the conference decreed
lo be theirs. The powers that are now
threatening Greece tonk no til

acknowledged that the case of Greece
is very hard. To disarm a second time
without striking a blow, without a
wrong redressed, without ni assurance
even from tbe powers that they ahall
be redreeeed, looks like more than
flesh and blood tarn quietly bear. Hal
Greece when Balraria struck her
blow, have struck also, and seized a
much of the territory she claimed ai
was within her na?b, like Bulgaria,
she might bave held what ahe took.
She lost the golden moment, and is
now in as cruel a position aa a proud
and self-respecting people can well be
placed in. Before making any demand
upon Greece the powers ought, at
least, t put that coutt ry in possession
of tbe whole territory they themaelvta
have decided they should bold.

with a sudden jerk, pitched Lewis
headforemost of! the strj's. The Jap
Erofusely apologized, ana Lewis and
e shook hands. Again the wrestlers
grasped each other' shoulders. Quick
"is a flash tbe form of Sorakatchi went
straight over the footlights and sprawl
ing below on the reporters' chairs.
The referee, without hesitation, de
clared the sction by Lewis willful and
gave the fall to Sorakatchi. Both
wrestlers eyed each other wickedly,
and in the third Lewis lost no
time in getting his favorite neck .hold,
and, pressing the Jap's neck until be
was too feeble to resist, Sorakatchi at
once declined to wrestle the remaining
bouts, declaring the choking process
unfair. .Lewis men offered to leave it
out The Jap feared to trust the Wis
consin man and firmly rr fused to pro
ceed. At 9:45 o'clock p m. Lewis was
declared the victor.

Nnv Yobk, January '28. Tbe third
night's play in the billiard m.Vch be
tween Maurice Yignaux and"9acob
Scbaefer took place to-night. In tbe
first two nights Scbaf fer made a total
rf 1200 and Vignaux 835. To-nigbt
either party was entitled to make tbe
first 1800 points, although Vignaux
Would have to make 165 points to en
able him to reach this desirable posi
tion. Cosmopolitan Hall was asain
filled with in immense audience, rep
resenting the wealth, culture and in
t -lligence of New York. Many ladies
also were present. Goasip was much
indulged in on the ultimate results cf
the contest, and notwithstanding the
lead obtained by Schaefer very many
were inclined to believe that tbe
chances rf Vignaux were unimpaired.
At 8:10 o'clock p.m. Vignaux entsred
tbe room. He seemed cheerful and
satitfied. Two minutes later Scbat far
came in, and at 8:15 o'c!o;k p.m. Mr.
McCreery, the umpire, made bis ap
pearance. SCHAEFER LED CYt
with a duck erg. Vienaux made 2,
while Mme. Vignanx . smiled approv
ingly from ber tiiad m at in the ga'
lery. Then celt end with gteat
tenderness o! toasb.Scbat f r played all
tbe billiards he was worth, including
two magnificent masse sbo s, for a run
of 24, slipping up ni'a miscueon a
diaw shot otherwise easily made.
Then Vignaux manipulated the balls
to succeessnlly, that 50 points were
added to his .wore. Then Schaefer
made 35, and missed on aa apparently
easy shot. Vignaux made 4, and
Schaefer so'.hing. Then Vignaux, by
a number o! beauti'ully made cush
ion and kits sho'r, made by playing
alternately on the red and the white
ball and the cushion, keeping withoit
the balke line made 65. The score at
the end o! the eighth inning stool:
Vignaux 171, Sctne'cr 134. In the
eleventh inning Viguaux made
thus far. The red and the white h 111
ttood Id a l'ne with the spot (Vig
naux) ball, which rested ol the upper
left-hand corner of the tails, fbe
o'ber to brll) were oppor.te the
right-hand rail. Vignaux p lived on
tie whit) bell in float, ran clown to
the lowar cushioi and twutd upward
and backward to the red bell oi the
right-hand cushion. The pUy e licited
much enthusiasm. -Aio her shot
"Englished" against the cushion,
which made complete 400 points in
thiB inning, which was received with
applause. Vignaux finally retired,
having made 126. At the end of the
fourteenth inning the ttHnps showed
that Schaefer had made 207 and Vig
naux 346.
Fiom tbat point Ssha?fer played a
rather tame game, with a spurt of ef
fective wo,-k. In the twentieth in
ning he msdet 73, in the twenty
seventh 100 and in the thirtieth 78.
Viennux, on the other iiand, sfier
put ing together 09 in bis fiitsenth in
ning, made no very la'ge runs; tor.
did he make many rma'l ones. Tbe
rreult wai that with a steady succes
sion of double fiines he matured to
amass 018 buttons when Scbaefer
reajbed COO, and tbe night's play
en led bringing tbe FrancUmun very
near to his diminutive opponent The
to n's for tbe three oigbM now stand:
Schafer 1803, Vignaux 1753. Tbe
