FRIDAY, : SEN. 17, 1880.
, Because the Blair bill distributes
more money in the South than the
Korth, the Republicans use their lup
port of this measure as evidence of
their liberality and generosity toward
Die South; but the truth is if the whole
Beventy millions provided far in the
Blair bill should be distiibuted in the
Southern States it would not equal the
appropriations which the NoitU has
received by many millions of dollers.
S' ford's American Almanac choirs
that while the Southern States have
received only 12,305,351 teres to aid in
bui'd'ng railroad?, the Northern
States have received 32,488,806 -or
20.123.4W acres more than the South.
For like purposes one nominally
Southern corporation his received
9,520,000 acrec, where' Northern cor
porations have had 139,341,000 or
129,821,000 acres more than the South.
The North has got 4,405,980 acres for
canals; the South has got nocefor
such works. For rivers, haibors, ci
nale, roads, railroads and internal im
provements generally in the North, the
Federal govercmint has contributed
$59,001,010; (or like purposes in the
South, only $23,259,473-or $37,401,537
lees. No government bonds have
been issued 10 any Southern milriiiJ,
whi'e to Northern railroads the gov
ernment has issued its bonds to the
enormoui amount of $78,926,732. Our
gulf and sea coast is at least as fx ten
sive an that of the Nor; hern Sinks, vet
for the various lighthouses, navy
yards, fortification?, e'.c, constructed
in the two section (including ar
senals and hospitals), the North has
received in cash from the Treasury
$130,774,518, and the South but $72,'-554,900-or
$61,219,612 loss. Turning
to the special matter in which "men
dicancy" is alleged against the South,
if it ask or accept the appro
priations of the Blair school bill,
we find that the Sjuthern States
have received but 0,434,440 acres of
the public lands for their free schools,
while for their schools the Northern
Slates have got 70,213,534 scree or
03,779,088 aires more than the South
ern States! In fact, the North has al
ready received tleven lima more for free
school purpovs alone from the Federal
government than tiie South. The Blair
bill is a dead issue in the future as
there will be no snrp'us in the Treas
ury to appropriate to educational pur
poses. But while the Republicans are
taunting the South with their liberal
ity toward the mendicants ft is proper
to show what the government bos
done for the North.
The trouble about Bulgaria hts
brought about some change in the at
titude ot Austria. It was moving in
connection with Germany and Russia,
but it has discovered that its own pos
sessions will be in danger if Russia is
to be master and occupant of Bulgaria.
We find now, therefore, assurances
given by the powers, including Russia,
that there shall be no military occupa
tion of Bulgaria. The assurance is a
solemn farce. With Russia dictating
who shall hold ofllce In Bulgaria, and
with Russian officers in the Bu'gaiiim
army, Russia has that country in its
own hands, and will tend its military
there when a pretense offers for so
doing. This will keep Austria oa the
watch, and Turkey is looking hard in
the same direction. Parleying, are
now going on, but there appears little
chance of any effective check being
put ti Ku'Bit. The English are mor
tified at the advances Russia is mak
ing in the Balkans, but profosaea that
it is no affu'r of theirs. An English
journal now before ns says: "The
interests of this country in the Balkan
Fniosula are not nearly so vi
tal as tbey wore, and we
sball not now, as we one
might have done, hf ad a European
coalition njia'net the Cear. It Russia
is to be opposed.Germany and Austria
mint lead the way. It is far more
necessary to them than to us that
lines a ihould be kept from the power
of coLtrolling the waterway fiomthe
Black sea to the Mediterranean, and
if Austria Ikes to sit quietly by while
Russia, one step at a time, embraces
all tbe Balkan States In her iron gr sp,
that is not our affair. We shall cer
tainly not pick the chestnuts our) ot
the fire for her." There is a lejiu'ar
"oout face" shown in these expres
sion, but our English contemporary
gws on U my: "The duty of resisting
RuaM in Europe rests upon Germany
ami AiiB'.ris. We shall havo to deal
with her, roaner or lattr, in Asia, but
in Europe onr intores's are not para
rnoun Our presence in Ejypt
give us, pra.ti ally control of the
iSitz canal, while we now hive
an alt-in' tive route ti the E st via
t'je Ca a l!au P.cilio railway, and the
possesion of Malta, Cyprus and Gib
raltar, in the Medittirrnni'an, givf s us a
pos lion upon that route to India and
Auitral a which Rues:a will cot be
able to Rswiil for many year?, if the
power is ever acquired." Unfortu
nately for tiiia rot very courteous
view of fie matter, Kustia has been t
work with Turkey, and a telegram to
t':e Ari-rti., publ shed on AVedne-day,
from a French paper, rUtes that "tbe
So. ten dfiuands the evacuation of
Egypt by the English, and that Russia
support! tin Turkish denuinds." This
in Russia's May if sayir g to England:
"If yo-i oljct t) my military occupa
tion of Bulgcria I object to your noi i
tary occupation of Egypt." This kind
of logic perplexes John Bull. Very
correctly doisthe Eai-lish paper we
quote tromsee the result of what is
going on when it declares: "Butoi
one thing we may be certain. If R'it
aia f ets a free band now, this last
move will toon be followed by another
of equ', if net greater, audacity.
The more tbe game seems to tend in
her favor the more boldly will she
play her cards, snd Sofia having been
practically won, there will soon be a
despeia'e stroke for a higher prize."
That prize Is Constantinople, and with
Constantinople in Russia's hands and
no Egypt to trust io, where will Eng
land be? The plot thicken. Diplo
matists are striving to postpone issues,
but tbe ctastrophe wiil cot,o after
all, spite of delay, and one cf the ex
tracts above shows that England is
fully aware of that fact. A Cocstanli
nopoliten which we have pub
liihed appears to show that Eng
land is stirring more actively in the
matter than she has been given credit
for. She has taken possesion of an
island in tbe Aean sea over which
Turkey bas claims, and Turkey is de
manding explanations about it, and
alto why England is making certain
provisions (gainst contingencies. Here
is diplomacy again. If England is
looking to her navy and to her army it
is Ruesia, not Tnrkey, that is tbe
"contingency." Yet it is Turkey, not
Russia, that asks the question why ?
Turkey owes Russia vast earns far in
demnity for the last war and is in ar
rears. When Russia wants to influ
ence, Turkey thot country is frightened
by a' most threatening demands to pay
up. Such demands have been re
portod since the Bulgarian trouble be
gen;and cow Turkey bas to equeal
whenever Ruxia nipj her tail. The
demands made by it on tbe English
Foreign Office are just like the Ru B'an
prompted squra1.
Since early in the present century
England, ss a manufacturing and trad
ing nation, bas made wonderful strides
bejond any other European country.
At length, however, sho has met with
a formidable rival in Germany. As a
trading people the Germans are suc
ceeding the English in their methods
of doing bnsine-s, and are strongly
competing with them in come
branches of manufacture, especially
in iron. In Mexico and Sonth America
the Germans have advanced tbelr com
merce beyond anything our American
merchants have done. The New York
Bulletin publishes extracts from tbe
report of tbe British Consul at Smyrna,
which give an insight iuto German
methods that are well north attention
among merchants in the United States.
The German merchants doing
a fore'ga business maintain close
re'ations with their own
country, so as to have the German in
fluence in settling quickly questions
that would otherwise be delayed.
Tbey find that their most successful
means of extending their trade lies in
the defective systems of business
pursued by their French and English
rivals. These generally restrict their
direct dealings to the large wholesale
importing merchants, but German
commercial travelers visit the interior,
show their samp'es and patterns to
the dealers in the towns, find out
what the buyers want and how tbey
like the goods made, finished and put
up, and in what way business affairs
with them can be best and most ac
ceptably managed. He becomes ac
quainted with the country and its
people, and he makes himself ac
quainted with their language that he
may be able to do so. Expense is
saved by one traveler acting for seV'
eral firms that are in different lines of
lnuioeiH, Io tbis way be makes
numerous business connections
tint are afterwards maintained
by establishing local German commis
sion agents The traveling "drummer"
tees, in the placoa he visits, the French
and English goods in favor, and in a
few months is offering cheap imita
tions of them. This sketch of German
methods shows wberejthe secret of
their succeis lies. They communicate
Immediately with the people in busi
ness, learn their likes and dislikes,
and Bupply goods in the styles and
upon the business terms their cus
tomers are accustomed to and prefer.
Through acquaintance with the Span
ish language, and an adoption of the
Germsu methods, our American mer-
chants could immensely increase their
trad with the peoples lying South if
iub uoiliu stales.
Mexico having Imprisoned Editor
CuUIng on the charge of publishing
in Mexico, Illegal matter, be is now at
liberty, but the Uoited States strenu
ously objected to any of its residents
being punished in Mexico for things
done in the United States, and any
claim to such a right that country
must give up. Curioualy enough
States among ourselves claim the same
right, and ii stronger terms than
Mexico does. The penal code of New
York, 1881, provides that aa act with.
out the State affecting persons, prop-
eny, etc., within the State, which
would be pinished if committed with
in tlo State, shall be "punishable as if
the act were committed within the
State." Po eay sections 076 and 078 of
that code. Texas has similar but
stronger provisions, which tbe State
Supreme Court have affirmed, under
which Mexicans can be tried and pun
ished in Texas for thir-gs done in
Mexiio. The New York Herald says:
"That which the Secretary of State in
eistsd was abhorrent to all the princi
pl.s of modern international law as
recognized snd practiced by govern
ments which make aay pretense to civ
ilwion he is now surprised to
find la a part of tbe penal code of two
great States, that of Texas bslng only
seven )era in force and that of Nw
ork Mate only five yearn." Yet
lexas wis .hoiked bih! exasperated to
he last degree about Mexican aesump
m , Tliu National Republican, of
Waihingten, publ sties tbe opinion of
b ilicitor VV barton of the State Depart
ment, ti the same effect, namely, that
the claim of extra territorial jurisdic
tion ,s founded on reason, and is com
mon to many civilized nations. We
have hardly room to go to war witli
Mexico on this part of the su Meet, and
certainly not on the part of Cutting.

At Belleville, Ill.-a Farmer and

St. Louis, Mo., September 16. A
daring robbery was committed ear y
yesterday morning near Centerville
Station, 111:, the victims being Jo eph
Bluff, a well known farmer, and his
employe, named Palmier. About 3
o'clcck in tbe morning they s'arted
irom tbe bouse to tbe barn, on Ulutrs
farm, to hi ch a team to a waeon of
rabbagn, which tbey were to bring to
this city. As they approached the
stables four maekea men sprang out
from their piece cf concealment and
presented revolveisat their heade, at
the same time cautioning them to
make no resistance. The robbers then
ordered them to reveal the biding
place of tbeir money. The fr'ghtened
victims did S), and the robbers, after
gagging them, led them back to the
liouee. On entering Bluff was takon
to a bureau in one room where be had
hidden $85. This the robbers took snd
then proceeded with Palmer to the tat
ter's room, where thev secured $35.
They then left the house, after warn
ing mull and raimier not to attempt
to pursue them, as they would be
killed. The la ter were too badly
frightened to do anything and the
masked desperadoes escaped. Bluff
went immediately to Belleville, III.,
where he informed the anthorities of
the robbery. The description which
be gave of the robbers tallies exactly
with that given by Mr. Furber of the
men who relieved him about a month
ago of $300 in a'mot precisely the
same manner. It is thought that
both crimes were committed by the
same men.
