The order made by the court rela

Spain has at last published official

the Nebraskan, even if they do not
succeed in placing the latter at the

boss of Tammany Hall, keeps having
himself interviewed on the subject of

"Hut there Is surely one great coun
try which, by community of laiiRUftBa,
religions, blood, origin and even Insti
tutions, Is well fitted to understand us,
and a country which we should be well
fitted to understand. Need I say that
the country to which t refer Is the
United States? Some foreign critics,
cynical by profession and training,
hold the view that the friendship now
happily existing between the Kngllsh
speaking peoples on both sides of the
Atlantic Is but the growth of trtoment.
and depends upon a transitory com
munity of Interests. They affect to
believe that when this disappears
friendship also will disappear. They
hold that It Drlttsh trade should' feel
Injured by some inconvenient tariff
Immediately the sentiments so gener
ally felt at this moment In Great
Britain towards America would vanish
like the leaves In autumn.

Mr Balfour, "the world of cynics Is al

"The prospects of Carllsm Is waning.
The farllsts themselves complain that
Don Carlos allowed a great opportunity
to slip when, six weeks ago, the coun

nation at the price of defeat. He might
have had a hope of success then, but
now the enthusiasm of even his ardent
admirers Is chilly, and the general
opinion Is that he has little chance, the
subject Is being dropped, the people
realizing that salvation Is not to be
had that way. This result Is not due
to the suppression of Carllst propa
ganda. On the contrary, the govern

"The monarchy Is firmly established,
and the Carllsts themselves are too
strongly Interested In the Industries
and welfare of the country to risk Its
ruin through revolution. The clergy,
owing to the pope's influence, are much
less Irreconclllable than formerly.
