more than the first bout of diplomacy
bet s een the belligerents outside ot
Constantinople. j
The steps towards mobilisation which
Austria and Russia are taking, al- '
though but preliminary, have made j
possible a vision of tha v?*t <onse-;
?luences. which, as far as Great Britain '
is concerned, are considered nothing ?
less than appalling. Apparently the
British public has no desire to sacri?
fice lives and money, paralyse com?
merce and risk the navy over the set?
tlement of the status of the Balkan
peninsula. Yet it Is uneasy, because
ignorant of how far Great Britain's
diplomatic engagements with France
and Russia extend In the direction of
aQ alliance, and of bow' much likeli?
hood there la that the government will
be drawn Into a conflict In which one
or both its partners in the entente
may be engaged.
The Liberal pre a la unanimous In
urging Great Britain to preserve neu?
trality. The majority of the Cons er- !
vatlves demand the same policy. The'
Times, declaring that none of the Em- j
rope an peoples want war. says: "Yet'
that la whither the other nations are j
blindly drifting."
It asks: "Who. then, makes war?"
and replies; "The answer la to he
found la the chencellsriee at Europe,
among the men who too long nave
played with human Uvea aa Pawns la j
a game of chance, sad who have be-.

realities with which they trifle. -

The Pall Mall Oaaette, almost alone,
speaks la a warlike voice- It declares: ?
"England ought te act firmly witn;
France and Russia In refusing simply >
te he swept aside. If the conference
desired by the British government Is
rfosed. we ought to face the alter-j
native and1 stand by our friends."
The mobilisation of the Austrian aad
Russian armies requires weeks for
which Germany and France can accom?
plish in days. In Russia's case, this Is
on account of the great distances the
troops must travel j tn Austria, be canoe'
the unite of the army are upon a peace
rooting, which is only one-third of
their war strength. Therefore, eaa-'
siderstlon of safety compels them to

England. France and Germany are)
r-laytng a peace-making rale. Their'
efforts are directed apparently toward
keeping the powers together In a com?
pact to refrain from taking up piece?
meal the questions which the war raises,
and defer their consideration oh til
the gen-ral conference.
The withdrawal of the Austrian
warship at Constantinople to rejota the
SaM is taken as so unfavorable sign,
and the immediate Servian occupation

further to bring Austria and Servla
toward the breaking point.

Carnegie Tells of Pro?
visions for Disposal
of Balance.
He Names This as Residuary
Legatee to Carry On His Edu?
cational and Charitable Work.
Explains Reasons for Plan?
ning to Pension Ex
New York. November 26.?Andrew
Carnegie, In a statement to-night,
asserted that all but $25,000,000 of his
fortune, which will be disposed of un?
der his will, will be left to the Car?
negie Corporation, of New York, which
J "as been made his residuary legate
and will carry on his educational and
charitable work. Mr. Carnegie's state?
ment likewise explains his reasons for
planning to pension ex-Presidents of
the United States, as he provided for
recently through the Carnegie- Corpo?
ration. In making his announcement
telling how he had gone about putting
his "gospel of wealth" into practice, j
Mr. Carnegie said:
"I resolved to fulfill the require?
ments of the 'gospel of wealth' by
transferring funds, and have done so.
except that I found it desirable to
retain for a while personal distribu?
tion of my Un.ted States military tele?
graph corps pensions and Pennsylvania
Railroad pensions to Pittsburgh divis?
ion men and their widows, because my
old boys would dislike the change. a"d
so no doubt would others upon my
pension list. To meet these payments
and others under my will. $25,000,000
of bonds, upon which the New York
State tax has been paid, have been re?
served. But the New York corpora?
tion has been made my residuary leg
alee, and all surplus left after meet?
ing the provisions of my will goes to
Earth Mere Heavenly.
"I am happy In getting ail this off
my mind. It is a gruesome business,
but I find that this earth is rapidly
becoming more and more heavenly.
Many good, men and women I know
iaher for * other*. Sorery Lather.
Franklin and their followers were
right who held that 'service t* man is
the highest worship of God.'"
In explaining bis pension Plan. Mr.
Carnegie cited the cases of three for?
mer President? as affording Justifica?
tion for the project, the announcement
of which, he said. In "making the de?
sired Impression" His trustees and
himself were all hoping, he said, that
Congress would meet the situation "by
proper action."
"Not ons of us but will rejoice
should this be the result," he said "We
were very careful to provide that
only In case Congress failed to pro?
vide pensions to ex-Presidents the cor?
poration woulu stand ready to do so.
It is properly the province of the na?
tion to act. We ail feel that."
Mr. Carnegie referred to a recently
publ'shed letter which dealt with tne
clrcumsancs of Grover Cleveland, af?
ter his retirement from the presidency.
"I know about Mr. Cleveland," said
Mr. Carneg'e in his statement. "He
told me of an offer he had to servo aa
a director in an Important institution
which would give him a salary, find?
ing that other directors haw not sal?
aries, he declined the offer, saying his
name was not for sale"
Mr. Carnegie'a other references were
to Pres'dent Lincoln aad Grant the
last named having been pressed for
funds even while yet la the White
House, the Ironmaster said, while be
quoted from a letter written by Mrs.
Lincoln to show that President Lin?

racy?Great Parade Marches
for Miles Through Cheer
ing Multitude.
Like nip. who arose In the Catskllla
: after a troubled nap of twenty years,
to gaze upon a world refashioned. De?
mocrat's patient donkey, lean with
twlce-seven and more yeara of famine,
broke from h:s bondage last night and
brayed the giad message of a new
order through the hlguways and by?
ways of the city. The figure Is im?
j perfect, but it will serve.
I In the memory of the present gen?
; eration there waa never such a parade.
' It stretched a mi:e from tip to tail.
I There was a brass b ?nd in front, a
: brass band behind and two more brass
, bands m the middle. There were red
: lights and blue lights by the hundred
and a thousand kerosene torches. There
were soldiers afoot, policemen ahorse,
and a cortege of automobiles, with the
dignitaries of ward, city and State.
I It was a Wilson celebration worthy;
] of the capital city of the State which
gave him birth. The town took a
. night off. shouldered a sputtering torch
and hoofed it for miles and miles of,
uptown pavement, in honor of Wood
row Wilson, born In Staunton and ed?
ucated in Charlottesville, to celebrate
with red Are and sounding cymbals
Virginia's eighth visit from the stork,
Father George Waa Taere,
A bit flossy for a description of si
mighty parade, which took thirty-two
minutes by the clock to pass a given
point, and which Included in Its ranks
such dignitaries aa the Governor of
Virginia, the Mayor of Richmond, and
a slew of Congressmen. Aldermen.
Councilmen and city officials, to say
nothing of merchants, hankers aad
broken. ?
To begin with, there was SslRM
George himself. Be rode waft tn ftWOF
on a snow-white float. The features
of C C. Gebhardt, who impersonated the
Father of His Country, lacked some of
the classic lines of Houdon's master?
piece In the Capitol, the hair was short
on powder and puff, and worst of all
George chewed gam all the way from
Fifth and Franklin to the Davis Monu?
ment, but It was Washington Just the
same, and the patriotic Virginia popu?
lace which lined both sides of the
street along the entire route cheered
itself hoarse.
The otter Virginia Presidents were
there, too. They came in widely sep?
arated points of the parade, each
mounted on a white-garbed float and
dressed In the costume of the period.
G. W. Wrenn was an imposing Jeffer?
son, and gazed serenely upon the rab?
ble from a lofty pedestal, inscribed
"Independence." On the third float
rode George Mullen, transfigured for
the occasion to represent James Madi?
son, the third President of Virginia
Rearer Lights Hb Terek.
James Monroe, framer of the doc?
trine which school boys mouth and
parliaments debate, rode majestically
on float Xo. 4. A. S. Boatrlght was In
j the title role, and did it to the queen's
j taste until he reached the Jefferson
; Hotel, where bis torch went out Hera
1 he forgot his exalted station, aad out?
raged all canons of presidential dig?
nity by leaning far over the side of
the car to relight his flambeau from
the torch of a parader in the roadway.
President William Henry Harrison
followed two Mocks behind, imperson?
ated by J D. Stevens F.i-tiier on
rode President John Tyler, with How?
ard Carter in the place of honor, and
