PBACEFUL ADJUSTMENT.
Londos, March ' 14. Mr. Gladstone an
nounced in the House of Commons last
evening that an agreement had bean reached
kietween Hie Government and the Eusslan
iofflclala, by which both powers pledge then
elves to make no hotter advances In
(Afghanistan pending negotiations looking
lo an amicable and peaceful adjustment of
the Kusso-Afgban - frontier question. St.
Gladstone further stated that the agreement
jwhlch had been arrived at between England
end Bussia provides for a possible collision
between the Afghan and Russian outposts.
Should lueh an encounter occur, the pnscat
jarrangenent would not be disturbed there
by, and the matter of tho demarcation of
jtho frontier would still be possible.
; The Premier was asked by Sir Stafford
Northcote, leader of tlie Opiwsliion, inaU
ler the agreement referred to was Una!, or
whether its provisions would be obsirved
only temporarily. '
! Mr. Gladstone's reply clearly showed the
unsatisfactory naUtre of the understanding
with the Kussian GovernniPnt. The agree
ment, he admitted, was without any defini
tive term of existence. The best description
he could glvo of it, he said, was that it would
llust whilo there was occasion for it
' This novel statement was received with
t
laughter by the Conservatives, who appeared
o regard it as ono of the Premiers Jokes.
The uncomfortable Impression left upon
the minds of members by Mr. Gladstone's
explanation was deepened when the Mar
quis of Hurtington, Secretary of State for
War, replied to a question from a Conserva
tive member by tho frank statement Uat the
(Government still felt great anxiety as to the
joutcome of the Kussian question.
, Though the gratification caused In Londna
iby Mr. Gladstone's announcement of an
iamlcabis understanding with Kussla was
somewhat impaired by the bulletins describ
ing the subsequent debate, there yet seems
lo be a general Impression that even a tem
porary agreement with the Czar Is a hepeful
(indication when contrasted with the wholly
unfavorable news which has been coming
from ali sources for the past fortnight In
regard to the Afghan trouble.
The Impression that war may be averted
is strengthened by dispatch received last
night from St, Petersburg, which states that
(at a levee held yesterday the Ciar said. In
conversation with a German oftiocr: "Ieaa
Uot conceive that any but the wildest
(dreamers ran think that I would declare
war with England. There Is not sufficient
(cause to warrant it. Russia can attain her
ends by the methods ot civilization, wltboot
resort to force."

CLEVELAND'S INAUGURAL.
A Republican Idea of the Latest Presi
dential Delhreranee.
President Cleveland's inaugural is a
mtistorpicco of urt in its avoidance of
questions upon which the American
peoplo have at any time boon at issue.
It does not allude to slavery, the war,
or emancipation except to say that the
existing rights of the frecdmea as
citizens under tho Constitution and its
amendments are to stand secure. If
the expression "Civll-Sorvice reform"
lias any well-dolined meaning, as in tho
estimation of a great many persons it
seems to have, President Cleveland
pronounces in its favor.
Apart from these glimpses of nebu
lous approximation to dolined opinions
it is difficult to find in Mr. Cleveland's
inaugural any sontimcnt which would
not amount to an elaborate amplifica
tion of the proposition that it is better to
do good things than to do bad things, and
wiser to be wise than to be foolish, and
more patriotic to love our country than
not to lovo it, and more prolltablo to do
things that ought to be done than
things that ought not.
It Is possible that . the avoidance of
partisan issues in such a document is
timely, in view 6t the existing situation
of the country. Perhaps, Republicans
ought to thank President Cleveland for
conforming his Inaugural as closely as
he has done to the models furnished by
tho prevailing "speoch from tho
throno" of tho Executive potentates
of other countries. No party name of
Democrat or Republican, and no term
Btrictly associated with any party issue,
appears anywhero in this almost color
less production. Nothing is said to
disparage or humiliate the outgoing
Administration or any of those who
have hold olllce during twenty-four
years. There is no fulsomo laudation
of the alleged "principles" of tho
nartv whieh hu nlaced 111 in in nower.
4 j --- 1 I '
nor is there any recognition of the fact
that he owes his power to ono party
more than to anothor. Thero is no
promise or vaunt or boast that the
views hold by ono line of past states
men, bo it the Jellersonian, Ulintoniun,
Ilitmiltonian, or Jaeksonlnn, are to
prevail over those of their antagonists.
At first blush somo may construe him
to have announced a preference for
those principles of "strict construc
tion " of the Constitution which have
out so marked a tigure in political dis
cussion as to have acquired a technical
sense, lint, on a second reading, they
will find that he prefers the terms "just
and unstrained construction," which
is the medium between strict and lib
eral construction.
But one phrase in the document pos
sesses marked individuality. This is
that which recommends to all ofllcials a
"plain way of life" nt calculated to aid
integrity and promote thrift. Mr. Cleve
land is also distinct in declaring that he
has no brilliant or ajrerossive ibreiim
policy to favor, but that his foreign pol
icy win consist in letting oiner nations
alone. His allusion to the tariff cues'
tion is not couched In the language of
either platform. His kindred allusion
to our finances is so general that it
might or might not be construed as
embodying a reiteration of his lotter on
the silver question. Although the Mor
mons have given him the benefit of
thoir votes, he returns them no comfort
in the matter of polygamy.
Altogether Mr. Cleveland's inaugural
address is politic, and avoids so many
possible modes and forms of error into
which he might h iyo fallen that its
judgment and poise power of abstinenoo
and of reserve invest it with a good deal
01 exeoutive strengtn ana aptness.
While bo has not announced a policy.
the careful renunciation of all dosire to
announce a policy becomes a sort of
policy in itself, which is well calculated
at tho outset to improve hi position
among those who have withheld from
him their confidence.' Ho. has studied
to avoid sensation and te get down to
the routine of business with as much
taot and as few .words as. possible. , lie
assails nothing, defends nothing, and
criticises untiling; . Tho pubuo will
await, therefore, tho announcement of
his Cabinet with the feeling that it will
contain probably few surprises and no
sensations.' Chicago Inter Ocean. :

THE RETIRED ADMINISTRATION.
A Few Word of CemmendaUoa Cooeira
'" ' 1 iDf Ma. Arthur and Hit AdvUen. -
"' Mr. Arthur, it Is stated, will take a
few months' rest from all care and then
will quietly resume the practice of law
in New : York., . He took his 'seat ai
President' under the most painful cir
cumstances circumstances whioh must,'
indeed, hare been specially painful to
him. But whatever miy be said o(
Vloe-President ,Arthiir it mu.4 bo ad
mitted that Prooldent Arthur has given'
tho country a quiet, peaceful and ro
spcotablo Administration. In all things,
however, be has exerted a negative in
fluence, and bocauso of this we imagine
that ho will not be long remembered.
While his good works may be few, hi
bad ones are still loss. Being a hand
some man, bis ploturei will alwny at
tract some attention among tho list of
ex-Presidents.
Secretary McCulloeh will go back to
hi Maryland farm, where ho proposes
to 'penu the remainder of hi day in
study and repose. As ho reposes he can
reflect that for a man who hold high
Station but brie II y he has made hb name
well-known.. The one opportunity of
fored him to write the message of the
Secretary of the Treasury was accepted
for all it was worth.
Secretary Teller will again return to
the Senate. He may or may not con
gratulate himself upon his return to that
body. It is reported that the Demo
cra'a propose to make a very rigid in
vestigation into the accounts of trie Sec
retary of the Interior, over which Mr.
Teller now has charge. . If everything
proves straight and proper Mr. Teller
will be glad that he b in a bandy posi
tion to receive the congratulation
of bis friends. . If everything does not
prove straight and proper in the Interior
Department, why, Mr. Toller's prom
inence will be simply awkward, that's
all. But we have oonslderablo faith In
both Mr. Teller and his accounts.
Mr. Frollrfglniyieo will temporarily,
at least, go back to bis New Jersey
home, but it is slated that in spite of
his age he has strong ambition to return
to the Senate. Mr. Frellnghuvsen has
been very active Secretary of State as
evidenced by the numerous treaties ne
gotiated with foreign Nations. The
real value of Mr. Frelinghuysen's ser
vices in this connection, however, will
never be fully known because of the
change of Administration now about to
take place.
Mr. Brewster will return to Philadel
phia and the practice of law. It will be
said that it was rather unfortunate lor
the Government that it had so impor
tant a legal matter on hand as the Stat
Route cases when Mr. Brewster bocams
Attorney General. But this fact can
hardly be charged to WE. lirewster as a
personal or professional fault
Mr. Lincoln, after a reasonable rest,
will return to the practice of law in
Chicago. Hois reported to have said that
ho "will lay down tho portfolio of War
without a single regret," and it may
truly bo said of him that no regret will
bo found anywhere for his having boon
given the portfolio of War. By his
publio service and conduct he has hon
ored himself, his country and the great
name of bis father. We shall be much
disappointed if tho name of Robert T.
Lincoln does not again appear prom
inently before the people of America..
Secretary Uhandlur is not known to
have made any definite plans for the
future. So far as we can see the Ameri
can navy has not suffered at the hands
of Mr. Chandler. This may partly bo
accounted lor, perhaps, by the fact that
previous to Mr. Chandler s administra
tion the American navy had reached a
condition in which it was insensible to
suffering.
Mr. lfutton is also undetermined as
to his future occupation. Ho may re
turn to journalism, or, as it Is reported,
ho may nccept a position with the Bur

OUR PARTY NOT DEAD.
The Rrpubflran 1'nrty Not a Head Tarty bj
Any Mauner of Means.
"Dead?" The Republican party has
ot been so thoroughly alivo since 18G0
as it is at tli is hour. In clear purposo,
in unity of feeling, in certainty that its
causo is that of all American citizenship
and all American labor, the Republican
party is strongor to-day than it ever has
been since its birth. It has never had
greater reason to be proud of its leader
tip, or of its own honor and courage
in manly appeal to the people. It re
joices to be rid of elements which were
always a curse to it, because essentially
hostile to its principles. It has once
more the advantago which it had in
I860, and never since, in the fact that
its principles have been defeated only by
high-handed and infamous crimos.in vio
lation of the Constitution and the lawr.
It has so fully the confidence of the sub
stantial, conservative and property-own'
log peoplo of tho North, and of the work'
lag people everywhere, that thousands
in every State who voted against it in
November arc now calling themselves
fools for doing so. It has more voters
than ever bvforo, aud an infinitely
greater opportunity to gain voters.
What tlio Republican party needs is
only lluclity to its own glorious cause,
It needs to stand like a rock, while the
wrangling factions thut have prevailed
tear each other to pieces. It needs to
defend its principles with boldness,
while the country learns by sad expert
ence what Democracy means, and what
results a democratic victory brings, it
needs to strive with ceaseless fidelity.
through club 4 and lectures, journals
and documents, to teach -tho voters
what its principles are, and why they
should be uphold. It noods to put
aside all petty wrangling about the
oillccs and tho honors; to let future
nominations be mado freely by the peo
plo when the time comes; to welcome
as Republicans those who truly espouse
its nrinciples. and to repel and cast out
with stern fidelity tboso who arc hostile
to its principles. It can heartily thank
Heaven that most of them have gone,
and take good care that they shall not
como back until they are ready to up
hold it causo and accent its plutfonn
without reservation. It lias the certain-
ty that many voters will be gained for
everv ono thut can be lost bv fidelity to
its ideas, fur those ideas-- are might and
wjii prevail. ..-..-.
There' are two- things ttiatthls prac
tical and ijustlce-losring American peo
plo will hot king endure. They will not
endure the virtual disfranchisement of a
million men, to whom the Constitution
entrusts the right of suffrage, wben that
disfranchisement is accomplished . by
tho men who tried to destroy tho Union
In war, and in order to give the 'same,
men power to rule the Union In peace.
They will not long enduro that all the
industries and the comracroe of this
Nation shall be at tho mercy of a party
Which blindly adops foreign theories
of taxation, and proposes ' to make
Amorioan laws beneficial to British
capitalists rather than to America
workmen. If the Republican "party
makes these two things clearly under
stood by the people it need not worry
itself about anything else. The party
which defends American cltironthip in
all its rights, and protects American
lnbor In all its interests, will not appeal
in vain to tho people after four years'
experience of Dcmocralio rnle. -
The Deraocratio party there Is no
Democratic party.. The Notion's rubbish-heap
has received so many addi
tions of waste mutter , during the past
twenty-four years that it has 1. come to
be too big; that is all. With a little ei-'
perionco of Democracy as it Is, thou
sands of men who now call themselves
Democrats will got out of tho associa
tion as soon as tucv can. Man bv the
hhousandL-who have never voted any
other man a uemocratio tiokot, as soon
as they see what tbey have been voting
for, will know better than to do so
again, as long as they live. The fac
tions that have never agreed out of
powor, when forced to deoide npon
someoourse of action, must discover
that they have no common aim or in
terest The Republican party is no
no longor bound to solve all the prob
lems and overcome all tho difficulties
ot National government, carrying the
dead weight of Demooratio prejudice,
ignorance and hatred of progress.
The country is going to sue what
Democracy is and what it wants. It
will see enough in a very short time to
last sensible men for half a century.

"LITTLE BUT THEN."
A Queer Name for a Little OlrL and How
She Came by It.
It was a queer name for a little girl,
and it was not her real namo that was
Lizzie but everybody called her "But
Then."
"'Course my real name is prettier, but
then, 1 like the other pretty well," she
said, nodding her Bhort brown curls
merrilly. And that sentence shows just
how alio camo by her nnmo.
If Willie complained that it was a
miserable, rainy day, and they couldn't
play out ot doors, Lizz.e assented
briirlitv:
"Yes; but then, it's a reul nioe day to
fix our scrap-books."
Wben Rob fretted becauso they had
so far to walk to school sines they had
"moved to this homul out West, ' his
little sister reminded him:
"But then, it's all tho way through
the woods you know, and that's over
so much nicer than walking on pave
ments." When even patient Aunt Maria pined
a little because the rooms in tho new
homo were so few and snia'l comparod
with the comfortable Eastern home, a
rosy ttico wai quickly lifted to hers with
the suggestion:
"But then, llttlo rooms are the best
to cuddlo all up together In, don't you
think, auntio?"
"Better ca'l her 'Littlo But Then,'
and have done with it!" declared Uoli,
half-voxcd. half-laughing. No matter
how bad anything is, she is always
ready with her 'but then,' and some
kind of consolation hitched on to the
end of it. ''..
And so, though no one really intended
it, the new namo began. Thore wero a
good many things that tllo children
missed in their new and ruder homo In
the West Money could have bought
them even there, but if the money ' had
not gone , lirst, their father would
scarcely, have thought It neccasary, to
leave Lis Eastern homo. They had done
what was best under the circumstances,
still the boys felt ml her incllneJ to
grumble about it ono winter morning,'
whon they wore starting off to the vil
li apo on an errand. ,
' ;-Just look at all, the snow going to
waste, without our having a chance to
enjoy it!" said Will; "nndthe Ice too
all because we couldn't bring our sleds
with us whon we moved."
1 "But then you might mako one your
self, you know. . It wouldn't be quite
so pretty, but it would be just as good,"
suggested little But Then. ' '
"Exactly what I mean to do as soon
as I oan get money nnought to buy two
or three boards) but I liavu t even that
yet, and tho winter is nearly half
gone."
"If we only had a sled to-day, Sis
could rldo, and we could go on tho
river," said Hob. "It's -just as near
that way, and we could go fast ir."
"It is a pity,!' admitted the little girl,
with a momentary clouding of her
bright toco. '!But I've thought of
something that old chair in the shed!
If we turned it down, iu back would
be 'most like runners, and so "
"Hurrah! That's the very thing!"
interrupted tho boys, and the old chair
was dragged out in a twinkling and
carried down to the river. Then away
went the merry party, laughing and
shouting, on their smooth road bi tweon
the snowy hills, while Gyp followed,
frisking and barking, and seeming to
enjoy the fun as much as any of tlium.
"Now we'll draw our 'rig' np here
close under the bank, where nobody
will see it, and leave it whilo we go up
to the store," suld Kob, whon they bad
reached tho village, " - -
Their errand was soon accomplished,
and the chlldron ready to return; but
as tbey set forth Will pointed to a d uk
spot a little way out on tho Ice.
"What's thai? It look? liktf a great
bundlo of clothes."
It was a bundlo . that moved and
moaned as they drew near, and proved
to be a firl a lit'le turgor than Lizzie.
She looked np when they questioned
her, though her face was white with
pain. ; , ,.,
"I slippod and fell on the ice," she
explained, "and I'm afraid I've broken
my leg, for it is all twisted under me,
and I can't move it or got up. I live in
the village. That s my lather s car
nontor shoii where vou see the sicrn. I
could see it all the time, and yet 1 was
afraid I'd freeze here before any one
saw mo. Oh, dear! it doesu't seem as
if I could lie here whilo you go lor my
father."
Whv. vou needn t" becran Rob. but
the girl shook her boad.
"I can t walk a step, and you two
are not strong enough to carry me all
tho way. You'd let mo fall, or you'd
have to keep stopping to rest; and put
ting me down and taking mo up again
would almost kill me."
" Oh, but we'll onlv lift vou into this
chair, just as carefully as we can, and
then we can carry you easy enough, "
saidWUL
And in that wav the Door trirl was
borne safely home, and the children
lingered louz euouch to brine: the sur
geon and hoar his verdict that "young
bones don t much mind being broken,
and she will soon be about again as well
as ever." ..
" But I don't see how you happened
to have a chair so handy," said her
father to the boys. And when they ex
plained that they were using it for a
sled he added, with a significant nod of
his head: "Your sled, was it? Well, I
shall be surprised if my shop docs not
turn von out a better sled than that.

How They Become Good Workers, and
How Tliey Are Drlveo to Sledges.
As tho Esquimau must somotlmcs be
babies, so the dogs must at some time
be puppies, and the puppies are allowed
inside the igloo on the bed, where they
aro tho favorite playthings of the young
heir. His mother makes him a number
of doll dog-harnesses for the puppies,
fixes him up a dog-whip almost like his
father's, aud then he amuses himself
harnessing them, hitching them to a
hatchet, the water-bucket or any object
that is at band, and dnv.ngthcm around
in the inloo and storm igloo, or out-of-
doors, when the weather is very pleas
ant. As soon as the puppies get a little
bigger, the larger boys take them in
hand, and bv the time they are old
enouzh to be used for work in tho
sledges, they are almost well-trained
dogs.
And so with the littlo Esquimau him
self; whon he is a young man, he is a
good dog-driver, and knows how to
niaiinire a sledge under all circum
stances. This is the hardest thing that
an Esquimau has to Jearn. I havo
known white men to equal thorn in
rowing in their littlo sea'-skin canoes; I
have seen white men build good igloos;
but I have never seen a white man who
was a good dog-driver; and the Es
quimau told mo that they bad never
had seen such an ono, cither. Whon
they drive their dogs, it is in the shape
of a letter V, the foremost dog being at
the converging point, and the harness
traces running back in V-shapes, to tho
fledgn. The forward dog is called tho
"leoder," or "chief," and, in trading
dogs, a "leader" is worth two good fol
lowers, or ord'nary workers. Tho Es
quimau dog-drlvcr manages the leader
wholly by tho voice, milking him stop,
fo ahead, to the right or to the left, us
e may speak to him; and as ho acts,
so do the others, who soon learn to
watch him closely, and strangest of all,
to oboy him even after they are unhar
ncsscd, although "the leader" may not
bo one. of tho largest aud strongest dogs
in the team. Lieutenant i'redcrkk

' It happened in a sleeping-car, nut

was ikme, and presently she slyly
pressed the bnlton, causing the porter
to appenr with a respectful query as to
what was wanted.
- "I didn't ring," said the woman, "it
wan my littlo Lizzie."
The porter withdrew, but it was not
long before ho was again summoned
and again reoeived the explanation that
"Littlo Llzzlo" had rung the bolL This
tas repeated a number of times, and
the woman thought It a tine joko, but
the porter began to look tired. At lost
the mother, wished ' something and
prcssod the bull-button. No porter
came. Again, and with more force, she
pressed tho knob, but thero was no re
sponse, and she was finally obliged to
go in search of tho man and give her
orders herself. By the time the porter
had brought the needed article she had
grown very indignant, and proceeded
to reprove nim with severity.
"Why did you not come whep I rang
the boll'1' she demanded.,
"Did you ring the bull, ma'am?"
"Of oourio I did,' over and over
again." ,
"Well, yon see, ma'am," said the
darkey, ducking his head, while a grin
spread alowly over his shiny face,
"your little Llzziu done broke dat boll."
