Minister lor foreign Anairs
Th Greek d llieulty has become the
ahsoroing topic at the foi-etirn Ulltee,
The snbmiss on of M. Delyannis, the
Greek Prime Minister, to the ultima
tum of lte powers is expected to be
received at any hour. The temper of
the population ot Athens is causing
alarm. Jt is understood that the show
ot resistance by the Greek govern
ment lias been prolonged with a view
to appeasing the national pride.
A dispatch received from Athens
this evening says that the Greek gov
ernment insists upon the withdrawal
of the ultimatum. If it is main
tained the Ministry will resign its a
protest acainst the independence of
Greece implied by the ultimatum of
the powers.
At Athena.
Athens, April 2S.-Tho Greek Gov
ernment has telegraphed to all its
representatives abroad that the assur
ances Greece has given to France
about keeping the peace ami d sunn
ing orght to sutiice wit out more
being demanded by the powers
It is believed here that the Min
istry will resign unless the powers
withdraw their ultimatum.
The citizens of Athens, in a public
meeting at the Town Hall to-day,
adopted resolutions strongly denounc
ing the action of the powers in bring
ing pressure to bear upon Greece to
eompel her to desist from attacking
Turkey. The meeting appointed a
deputation to present n copy of the
. resolutions to M Delyannis.
A Second Attack o lha Measure by
Jeaae 4 oI1iuk.
Losdov, April 28. Mr. Jes9e Col
lings, the unseated Liberal member
for Ipswich, publishes a second attack
on Mr. Gladstone's home rule bill.
Mr. Collings now declares that the
scheme is but a "thinly veiled meas
ure of separation;" that the so-called
safeguards of the integr ty of the
Kinpire and of the Protestant and
loyal minorities are "both ridiculous
and untenable, and capable of being
maintained by armed force only "
He also advocates the retention " of
Irish representatives at Westminister,
while favoring the establishment of an
Irish National assembly to sit at Dub
lin and manage the domestic afliiirs of
Vba Rec'lvi-! l'ny From the State
and ttie Lw of the I'enl-

Nashville Banner: The I'nion, in ex
plaining its failure to publish the facts
in the Warden Harris aflair simulta
neously with the American, states that
it had'fnll possession of all the facts,
but withheld their i ublication at Mr.
Harris's request upon the understand
ing that the American would withhold
publication, and with the hope "that
the matter might be bridged over and
a scandal avoided, and perhaps a
mail's reputat on saved." Without
discussing the issue between the
Amrricm and Union, or questioning
the I'tiitm't motives, we may venture
to ask: In what possible way could
the matter have been properly bridged
over and a scan ial avoided? All of
the facts were known, as the L'ni'.n
admits, and the only fact not accom
plished was the formal acceptance by
the Governor of a resignation ho had
directed to be sent in. ' How could a
scandal have been avoided unless it
were contemplated to suppress the
publication of the facts altogether?
Even had the Governor concluded at
the eleventh hour to retain Warden
Harris in ollice something he could
not have lawfullydono -the withhold
ing of the facts m the case from the
public would have been wrong.
But aside from this question we
must refer to ano'her phrase of the
Vnion't explanation. Not content
with giving as the reason for its delay
in publishing the facts a charitable
consideration for a man in distress -a
reason which, if the true one, is com
mendable the Union goes on and de
fends the retiring warden and en
deavors in a manne- to justify his
conduct. Th s effort is certainly in
discreet and improper, viewed from
the standpoint either of a judicious
friendship or of public policy. In the
first place, it must necessa ily provoke
a discussion and invite a more se
verely critical examination of official
dereliction which n ay not be to ad
vantage to the party defended. In
the second place, no' journal, with a
proper regard for the public interests,
tr-n afford to lower the standard of
ollicial propriety and responsibility by
excusing tit" nns.onduct of an officer
and condoning a palpable violation of
the law We need rather the eleva
tion of the standard, and a nior
scrupulous view of ollicial propriety.
We not only have not sought to
magnify Warden Harris's offense, but
we ch erfully accord to him whatever
of palliation may justly come from
the fact that he was following a pre
cedenta custom, however, which
would have b en infini ely more hon
ored in the breach than the obser
vance. We do not seek to underrate
any mitigating circumstance, and we
even urge the public to take the most
charitable view of his case. Vet, as a
public journal, we muBt protest
against the attempt made to justify
his acceptance asafitite officer of a
silary from the private concern which
has a mercenary interest in the prison
labor, or the effort made to hold him
up as a martyr, slaughtered, as the
i'nion puts it, "for the sins of his
predecessors more tv.an himself."
That he Buffers for doing what others
did with impunity i'b true. Yet this
comparative injustice, while it may
give ground for sympathy, does not
make the surrender of his office too
severe a pet alty in his case. When
it comes to arguing that he did no
wrong, and that he has been sinne l
against rather than having sinned, it
is only necessary to stop all argument
bv ouoting from the oath ot otliee,
Holemnly subscribed to, which dis
tinctly and positively obligates the
warden to "accept no bribe or com
pensation other than that allowed by
Th f" '" r'c-lo-r.- tvt l i
f wardens receiving salaries from the
lessees, largely in excels of the salary
provided by law from the State, was
never sdv secret, and that it was
known to the Governors and Superin
tendents. It declares that these sala
ries from the lessees were drawn ojn'n
!y from the time of the lease under
Gov. Brown. We do not know how
many of the Governors were cognizant
of this practice, but we hope none of
them were, and that none of them
approved it. We sav here that if
either Gov. Brown, or Gov. Po ter, or
Gov. Marks, or Gov. Hawkins, or Gov.
Bate, at any time w inked a' and con
doned tho custom, he lowered the
oincioi standard and encouraged a
practice whim is opposed to every
correct view of ollicial responsibility,
and which is subversive of the public
welfare. We are discussing this mat
ter from the standpoint of right prin
ciple, and we have no man to pursue
and none to shield.
We deny that the practice of tho
paying of a salary by the lessees to a
high State penitentiary official was
done openly and above board. There
is no law to sanction it. The pub ic
never heard of it before the recent de
velopments. There nev r was a hint
of it injlegislative discussions of peni
tentiary matters. On the other hand,
the State Board of Prison Inspectors
declare in their report to Gov. Bate
that when the Legislative Invest gat
ing Committee was investigating peni
tentiary affairs in February, 1S!5,
Harris executed notes for tho salary
he had drawn from the lessees to
cover up the.transaction. The Inves
tigating Committee did not know that
the warden was in the pay of tho les
see?. At least it never mentioned it
or made a whisper about it. If it had
been known the fact would have
been used with signal advantage
by the defendants in a notable trial
in the Criminal Court about that
time. If it t ad been an open ami
above board transaction, there would
have been no effort at concealment
when a committee was looking into
aHairs. If it were right, there would
be no need now of explanation. It
was wrcng, radically wrong.
We have endeavored to take a plain,
common-sense view of the matter.
We have sedulously refrained from
any effort at exaggeration, and have
simply tried to be just. We have not
eten criticised the warden's explana
tion, which is vunerable enough. We
would have been content to leave the
case with tho public had not a miblic
journal undertaken a justiticati n of
official indirection, when everv con
sideration of the public welfare de
mands a jealous regard for tho hiihest

I am a native of Fnaland, and while I

I suffered the most asenitini nains n mj

my bndy and limbs I had vxrtico and deaf
nets, with partial loss oi sight, severe pains
in my bead and eyes, etc, which nearly ran
me crazy I lost all hope in that country,
and sailed for America, and was treated at
Koosevelt in this city, as well as by a prom
inent physician in New York having no oon

I saw the advertisement of Swift's Specific,
and I deiermined to live it a trial as a last
resort. I had given np all h"le of being

the best medical men in Nottingham and

Dr. Wintmmith, Sir I waive a rule 1 have
observed for many years, the value of your
remedy prompting me to say, in reply to
your request, what 1 know of your Chill
Cure. Ibo private assuranoes of its efficacy
Ibad.aod the good results of its effects I
had observed on Mr. R. W. Meredith, who,
for more than fifteen years, had been fore
man of my office, induced me to last it In
my family. The results have been entirely
satisfactory. The first ewe was of two
years' standing, in which I believe every
known remedy had been tried with tempo
rary relief tbe chills returning periodically
and with seemingly increased severity.
Y'our cure broke them at once, and there has
been no recurrence of them for moro thsn
six months. The other rase was ot a milder
form, and yielded mora readily to other
remedies; but the chills would return at in
tervals until your medicine was used, sine
which time, now several months, they have
entirely disappeared, from the opportu
nity I nave had to judre, I do not hesitate to
express my belief that your Chill Cure is a
valuable specific, and perlorms all you
