The gret German general Von
Moltke stands at the head of the
world's living military commanders,
and in a warlike speech be maJe
in the Re cha'ag on Haturday he
assumed an attitude that shows that
he, at least, views the present condi
tion of Europe as one unfavorable to
the maintenance of pnace. Si
thoroughly is ha imbued with soldier
ly Ideai tliitt hn la credited with paying
that "war is an element in the order
of the koi Id or 'alnd by Qod, for in it
the noblest virtues of mankind are de
valoped." The Germsn Government
demands that ths Reichstug shall
mike appropriations for an important
introfSa cf tin German army; that it
shall be ma le, not aa uruul for the
coming year, Lut for seven years lo
come. A3 tiie army of Germany is ai

upon th r sources of the nation,
thers is much rolu stanca to agree to
those domiiiid1, but the government
declares ttint such ii the nrgnucy of

acceded to, end it must ba done liofore
Curiitruu c imei, as delay msy lead
to most n rious onsequnnces. To

Moltke, now 8(1 years of ag, appeared
before it w th a speech that produced
a pro'ounl impression. It was uttered
with a s. It-run earnestness and an
emphatin decision that betokened, in
the speaker's mind, a conviction that
a groat cr tig Is at hand. There was
no express reference to Russia ; there
silence wss probably a political nec
esaity, but f the position of Fiance,
which has ircreaeed its army and its
wJr l marital, Vou Moltke spoke
-without re-erve; he has always dt
clarsd thi' Germany will never give
tip to France the provinces oi Alsace
and Lanain. Amid huehad s lenee
on the part of the R ichstag he de
clsred, a hi ling to France: "So long

Few lhlaHs In public sflaiis deserve
more Ihoughlful attention than the
monthly report of our loicei by fire,

Impression, end the report for the lost
month is aboat as bad as it could be.
Leaving eat tbe exceptional Boston
fire, tbe average lost during Novem

been 17,500,009 in the United Sates
and Canada. During the last Novem
ber It has amounted to $10,003,000.

83J per cent, above the average for tbe

Is not such a fact worthy of considera

York BulUiin't cm efully kept file j re

ol which destroyed property to the
amount of batwoen fOOJO and 110,000.
There wore tkirteen fires where
the lo in mich cae was between
$100,000 snd $2J!00). The entire re
corded loss by fire during the eleven
months of the present yer has been
$105,000,000. The figure is a fearful
one, especially whon wa remembor

OiO or $50,000,000 asked for a year ago
they now ask for only $28,000,000.
And th'a includes the estimates
ot the Mississippi River Gommitsion

over $6,000,000. There reems to be a

Cont nuirg, he said: Mr. Firth has
claimed that the Contervatives have
been converted to his views ia regard
to municipal reform. Weil, I am
grieved to h ar it, beciuse I should he
sorry to entertain such views. We
strongly rpprse everything that will
diminish ttie luster and authority of
the city corporation, though not blind
to the needed municipal reforms out
side of the city. lie a.d not believs
that any cunning manipulation ot tbe
municipal ins'itu ions would give re
lief to Ireland. She labored under tho
evil that her poou'ation had been
long deceived, aid nothing but the
strong arm of the law persistently ap
plied could redeem the peope
from that deception. It was
not a question of home rule
with w'aich they had to deal, but was
with a very different thinn 'he keep
ing of others' money in their pockets.
Could the founding of a catiou be
baed upon orgn zjd embtzz euient?
Lord Salisbury regretted their adopt
ing this courso, because they we.e da
s roying the confidence of man in
man, which was the rcot and prop of
p o'perity, end the evil effect of
which destruction generations could
not remove. Oa the other hand he
was glad that they had not de
ceiveda the Eoglisb people, who
might have been misled aud con
fused as to the justice of the Irish
claims. "It is certin," couiinued
Lord SalLbary, "that we will tuertby
obtain the support of many men who
lave hitherto sympathized with the
Irish in their aspiration?, but who
will feel that they are resisting not
only tbe dismemberment of tbe Em
pire but dcctiines fatal to the develop
ment of the industry and well being
of any community. With Lord Hart
ington, I regret that English s'ate8mn
allied with tbe Irish party have done
nothing to stop such a pernicious doc
trine, a doctrine for which they are
largely responsible."
