. The Dispatch's sj-mpathies are withtlie
. Senators and Representatives In Congress
•who favor the amendment which', . practi-"
cally 'speaking, proposes to' change the
• day for the ; inauguration of the Presi
dent from March «"-(th. to the 'last^Thurs-.
'day; in April, even though by so. doing
iwe shall have to" extqnd^the term of. a
Republican Presidftiit; for lapme. 'weeks.; .
. The Senate-- has. acted rC'avorably upon^
the resolution, and. it biitremains now for
I the ; House to concur, before .action; by
i the legislatures of the several States; will
be in order. But the foregoing '"but" Is
' a -big word. : Whether the House .will be
.allowed to- vote on this question' depends'
upon Speaker; Henderson. -\His power is ;
'.M-ell. nigh ! ; supreme.^ How/he stands on
the proposition we ' do , not; know, but if
the Speaker will permit a vote we be
lieve the House will concur,; with ': the
Senate by the necessary I ' two-thirds vote,
.arid we' have no doubt the 4 "States'— three,
fourths are required— will- ratify : the
• amendment. ~ " / , ,
"Virginians have a direct interest in this
change. In. this climate— or'; rather in
the Washington climate— the 4th of March
cornea at a season which often is cold,:
wot, and windy; but, liotwithstaridingr that
fact, you can't keep Virginians away
from "Washington on inauguration day.
They- are born politicians, arid they "will",
go to the capital, "especially 011 great
occasions— aiifi:.wh"en_ they get there they
"will", -stand on the sidewalks to -see j
the parade and in; front* of the Capitol
steps to hear the address, and the conse
quence is that many; of them come home
aiiiifg. Serious sickness and 'some deaths
we know have, occurred to Virginians
from such visit?. Now, -it _ is 'proposed
to throw the inauguration into. April,, a
month when milder weather may be
pected. We know of no -reason, except
,a,. sentimental reason, why the change
should not be mad.!*. We'd better give
up sentiment, in- this iiwtance and have,
less pneumonia . and pleurisy. ; .1 1^ follows,*,
of "^course, 'that* in. tliis : what* wi'"'

Virginians will be to the advantage of

It is a. long diplomatic lane that has
noturn : in it for Great,, Bri tain.' It; will
be remembered that in the. operation of
Introducing European seasoning; into the
treaty of peace, between China and Japan
the Russian diplomats clearly outwitted
Rosebery. .Russia treated Great Britain
to the same sort of sauce the latter had
treated her t-o in respect .of the treaty
of San Stefano, which followed the last
Jtusso-Turltish'. war. She ■ turned the
tables and played the same game the
British had with continental assistance
been playing: against her for generations,
arid ; ; which had been : a most potential
factor iir forcing Russian expansion
eastward. It has been said— and said
with truth— that to the British policy of.
forming combinations to shut Russia out
from~the sea in. the West, more than to
1 any other one cause are due Russian de
velopment and aggression in Asia and the
"orientalism,, that permeates, the Rus
sian governmental and social fabrics..
• By gaining the" ascendancy, in the mat
ter of ''influencing"' the terms of peace
between China and Japan, Russia was
enabled to compel the Japanese to re
linquish al! territorial fruit of the. war,
save Formosa, and it was recognized that
she gained a coign of" Immense; ad
vantage.. Xot only did thecoup give her
great prestige, but was accepted as most
valuable to her on its bearing upon Rus
sian designs upon China .'and -Korea.
There is more than a suspicion .that Rus
sia's appreciation of these.;, facts was
responsible for the "independent,", and,
on . occasions, arrogant; attitude. Russia
assumed towards the other. Powers du
ring the Boxer troublq. . As we know, not
merely while the outbreak was in pro
gii'ss, but during the : earlier stages .of
the" indemnity negotiation's,. Russia was
engaged in conducting- several side ope
: rations which were not. reconcilable with
< th<> canons' of good faith. 'but, of neces
sity, had to be.winked at.'/ :-:■:
Owing to her complications elsewhere
at the .time Great Britain, especially,
found it' advisable ib lie : low. Indeed,
not only did Russia have.' by herself the
whip-hand of, the British,-, but. it was
clear that she was manoeuvering with. a.
view of securing .German aid in 'embar
rassing the tight little isle. However, the
almost proverbial turn- mi ' the -lane" for
Great Britain: has come at last. -From
London -it was- learned yesterday .that
the -British and Japanese- Governments
have * formed an alliance for' guarantce
:ing • the integrity ' of' China', and - Korea.
The text of the.agreement has" been made
ipublic, -and leaves- no- doubt that both
parties mean business. A London spe
cial says that the announcement of the
understanding' caused' a great sensation
there, is regarded as ■ putting ah end to
'^England's vinagnificfont i isolation," and
is considered a full answer to the
charge that- .= British. interests ..- iii
China were to. be neglected; And .the
same special conveys 4a' bit> of informa
tion which was .hardly .necessary-; "it
says that the alliance, is aimed, at Rus
sia.. -Xbt (simply, as the special • implies,
