It may be that \*eforejin the later bull« .tins in the news for to- J ? received the fate uf thej city that rises from the sealed. It is a d- sperate Piave is the third and t three streams at which have tried to che« k the Frc-m this river to the h the distance is not as Butte to Gregson. • \ of thej Italians In \hat has happened ir orld naturally other war zones, contemplates with dread the results of the capture of the City < f Roman e, with its wealth of art and th- no le monuments that are in witness of the splendors of Venetian history. The wre--kage that could be wrought within an area not larger than two or three wards of Butte would be inestimable and unspeakably deplorable. It i.s said that if the wopst conies the city will be surrendered without a strug gle, in the hoje that this course will serve as a protection for its treasures in architecture and art. Mankinds ardent hope is that there will be no repetition of the destruction that was wrought at Rheims and Lille and Lou vain. In behalf of the Italians the report has been that the Frer h and the British failed to come to the rescue when help was needed. There are two sides to that story; the American pub lic cannot pass intelligent opinion upon the merits of the contention. It is known, however, that London and Paris have promised to help—the added word was that this help cannot become instantly available. A] parently it come too late, as far as safety Venice is concerned. The interesting history of Venice started fifteen centuries ago when the inhabitants along the nu. inland fled to the islands on which the city's founda tions rest, in their flight for safety against the attacks of Attila, the greatest of all the Huns. The re markable recital tells of Venetian tri umphs over the Turks, of widespread domain, of development which made the city Europe's most important mercial point, of the gradual decline In trade and prestige following the New World discovery and the transfer of commercial supremacy to the Portu guese. In modern times Venice has known skat It means to bf the prey of Fate. It was a part of Napoleon the First s kingdom of Italy. After Water f loo. in 1»15, it became a part of the f Lombardo*Venetian kingdom under I Austria's real sovereignty. When, in' ] 1*66. Fistuar.k crushed Austria', mili j tary establishment. Venice was ceded I to Napoleon the Third. Under his aue I pices and as the result of a p leb iscite jthe city and province became a rart ! of the kingdom of Italy.

LONDON AND PARIS Promptly the newspapers in Berlin make remarks to the effect that the d George administration Is a fail ure; one quotation in the press new from that city quotes editorial com ment to the effect that the British premier has "gambled away his best stake—his following among the masses." Other German newspapers are anticipating that the ministry at Ijondon will be tom up by the roots, and they may l>e right about it. As far as our own country is con cerned. we really were not aware that there was so much British dissatisfac tion concerning administrative affairs. Our official circle may have been in formed concerning it. but the public in the United States was surprised over the outbreak In London which was the sequel of Lloyd George's nego tiations in Paris relative to co-ordina tion in^the management of the war. They certainly have the habit fn London. English public opinion, some of its phases, finds expression through the talk of men like North cliffe, in his words or through the newspapers he owns. He has been finding fault al»out all the time since the war started. No management has suited him—if we take his word for it the war business has lieen a bundle from start to finish. He speaks, prob ably. the sentiment of a good many of his countrymen, and that sort of talk is not calculated to quicken war en thusiasm in the United States. Lord Northcliffe has declined an im portant official station offered by the premier; he says that he could not work in harmony with all the members of the Lloyd George government. That attitude solves no war problems. It may be inferred that a Northcliffe premiership is the only one that would suit him.
