Some Councllmen were elected yes? terday wlio ought to have been de- ' feated. and sou:.- were defeated who ought to httrc been elected, but The Times-Dispatch believes Ui.nj there is fair reason to hope thai the new Com? mon Council will rise to the full meas? ure of Us duty and responsibility. A pood proportion of the friends of the new plant of government have been ^returned, although more "i Its erib inles have retained their sftats than was desirable. The balance of power In the new lower bran, h will be held by men whose records do not negative the possibility that they will attain j that breadth of vision and that patri? otism ot purpose so essential to the j efficient discharge of their offices. There Is no reason why Councllmen ] cannot rise on the stepping stones of 'unprogressive records to a loftier and a more patrlotlo attitude, the Times Dispatch earnestly trusts that the n?w Common Council will go down In the annals of the city as patriotic, effici? ent and progressive?thai it will do its] full share in making our new form of government an unquestioned success. REXEWA1, OF PEACE PIIISSSI HE. The fanatical outbreak In Fes, in? volving a mutiny of native troops, Slaughter of aliens, looting and rap'n;, has cnused renewed pressure by the powers to end the Ttirko-Itallan W ar. Heretofore the pressure has been al? most entirely exerted upon Turkey; now Jt Is being equally exerted upon Italy. Tho reason for renewal and abandonment -of the policy of p.laying favorites is found In symptoms and signs that the spirit of the PVz uprls- i lug threatens to spread; that there ar; , grave indications of the affair becom? ing tJic signal for preaching :t holy | war. France Is thus singularly men? aced and deeply concerned outside of ' Morocco, by reason of her Algerian' holding and protectorate over Tunis. The latter is an especial dancer spot. ! sin . in that country are some 60,0001 Italians, who at present are, aside from religious considerations, tho obj/icts of; in:- nse Mohammedan hatred, due to Italy's seizure of Tripoli. In greater j or less measure tho same conditions i exist in Alglers, und tho provocation and Incitement to sympathetic attacks Upon tho Itallnns in both of these Islamic strongholds are therefore ap? parent. That Tripoli If, territorially, com? pletely lost to Turkey does not admit of debate. No, one supposvs thai Con? stantinople does not recognize and realize that fact. Since Italy has gone to her prevent limit, she cannot afford to roHnriiuls.il" her grip, nor could toe other European Christian nations afford that she do bo. Positively or nega? tively, ttrti powers have Indorsed Italy's tv>up and conceded that .men or late. In the working out of manifest destiny, It had to come. Any ehnnpe by them of tlielr attitude, on the question would. In the eyes of tho Mohammedan world, j lie an '?xlilhltlon of weakness and Irres- i olutlon, fraught with possible dlsas- ! trous consequences as affecting their overlord Ship or Moslem subjects. But Turkey would save her face. That sho accomplish this is essential to | the maintenance of th.-> Voting Turk 1 rerlme; |s essential, in truth. In nssui - | tne against widespread Internal Insur? rection. Tho powers, for their part, foresee 1n a holy war, or even in a eyriis of revolts in "Northern Africa; the prospect of Immense drain of hi....a und tr?asure, a long period <>i turmoil ! and demoralization, and tie- decay of tho material fruits of years of pad ft cation and et onomlo development. Tur- | key's face-saving ultimatum ami con- ! ditlon precedent to treating for poace Is that Italy withdraw her decree of annexation. Tho proposition now is that the Italian government comply, agree to negotiate thereafter,' to secure a protectorate over Tripoli by compen? sating Turkey, and also formally rec? ognize, the Sultan as the rightful Caliph. It is proposed. In short, that Italy ?hall dominate Tripoli and hold it In : trust virtually ?fter the manner in which Great Britain ? dominates and holds In trust Egypt. This spells per? petuity of possession, absolute absorp? tion, In fact. If not In name, and dicta? tion In all affairs: of the people save- their religious matt* rs. It is well known tlmt the tnly bond of union between the Mohammedans of Tripoli, Tunis. Algiers and Morocco add the Arabs of the back desert, on the onn hand, and Turkey, on tliq otlur, Ib tin: law oi the prophet and animosity towards the Christian Interloper. North African. Arabian and Egyptian natives resent the Turkish >olte from the gov? ernmental vi. wp'ojnt, and in default of Indep-ndir.ee and apart from tite obli? gations of the faith, would is lief live Under one oppression Its another. Given that, the pr/wer.t would solve the pro? blem by concession to Turkish pride ftTi 'iSiiiaataeTM^niri ^L^U' '"? the in fiushce of the Calipli In suppressing such uprisings as that in Morocco. This Is Hit- issue on which ?o uro toW the powers sirs calling upon Italy to rust n deciding vote, thai is awaited with intense anxiety through ut Ku ropc. RICHMOND is till Vi ri l i..

His genius, as a pianist and as a composer, lias the serious ubiding quality of great art. Richmond Is proud to have her name joined wttli that of .lohn Powell. No less a source of pride was the performance of the excellently trained chorus.

Homer, and Carl .lorn and ftlc cardo Martin will be remembered for years. A constant delight, and the foundation on which the whole dream fabric rested, was the splendid work of the orchestra under Josef Paster naok. It was superb in its very self effacement, j But the adjectives have run out. .\ simple duty remains?that of in some? way expressing the gratitude und ap? preciation of Richmond to the mem? bers of the Wednesday Ulub, who, by persistent effort through years, have at last made real such a triumph.

A historical achievement of thisj sort grows in value as the years go by. Increasing that Just pride in patriot ancestry which Is one of the finest assets of the Old Dominion. The list clears away much of historical doubt as to the number of Virginia troops in the Revolution, and makes it certain that the number from Virginia "was- in ex? cess of the number with which the Stale has Sometimes been credited. it was n vasl labor of patient re? search, that or Dr. Rckonrpde's, but closeted with bis manuscripts ami his books, he has rendered the State far better und far more enduring service than tin whole en ?? of official sub.
