THURSDAY. MAY 2Gth, IS9S. THK IMOKTIIIKD TOWNS. There is great uneasiness along our long eastern seaboard about a possible descent of Spanish warships. So far as international law is concerned the un fortified towns should have no fear. International law is the development of treaties and usage. The security of the unfortified town is based on defin ite treaties. Article XV. of the report of the conference of Brussels, held in 1874, on the rules of military warfare, and signed by delegates from sixteen governments, reads thus: "Fortified places are alone liable to be besieged. Toy us, agglomerations of houses or vil lages, which are open or undefended, cannot be attacked or bombarded." Spain was a participant in this confer ence, the United States was not. This law was again adopted in 1880 by the committee of the institute of interna tional law which drew up the Oxford code. It will at once appear that if the principle were universally acted upon there would be no need of fortifying our seaeoast cities. Such measures would simply invite bombardment. The present prevalence of fortifications, however, points to a universal distrust of the observance of the doctrine. Jn 1879, Chili, then at war with Peru ) bombarded Pisagua, without artillery, fortifications, without any defence. In the heat of conflict not much confi dence can be placed upon the restrain ing effect of the principle of the ex emption of unfortified towns from at tack. The earthly career of one of the greatest men of the 19th century and oue of the grandest figures in British history is ended. William Ewart Glad stone, "the Grand Old Man" of Eng land, in dead, having passed peacefully away at his home at Hawarden early in the morning of May 19th. He was born In Liverpool December 29, 1809, and was accordingly 88 years, 4 months and 20 days old at the time of his death. His father, Sir John Gladstone, was n merchant and it in said of the sou that "he inherited that commercial spirit which regards business as the first con cern of human life." He was strictly a "business statesman." He entered public life as a member ot parliament at the early age of 23 and from that time on for sixty years was almost con tinuously in the public service in sorue important capacity. He was junior lord of the treasury at the age of 25, under colonial secretary a year later, colonial secretary in 1845, chancellor of the exchequer in 1852 and 1859, and four times prime minister of the Brit ish empire, for terms beginning in 18G6, 1880, 188G 1892. His long and eventful life covered one of the most remarkable periods of progress and development in the world's history, and so great has been his own part in it all that "for years beyond our ken, the light he leaves behind him will shine upon the paths of men." Aside from purely religious and hu mamtarian reasons the Pope had the strougest possible financial reasons for desiring a settlement of the differences between the United States and Spain without a resort to war. Seventy-five years ago there were at least 150,000 priests of the Catholic church in Spain and tens of thousands of nuns, and so vast were the property accumulations of the church that it had absorbed a very large part of the entire wealth of the country and clericalism was a rul ing factor In politics until 1835 when the defeat of the clerical party was fol lowed by sweeping decrees of confisca tion against church property. For nearly twenty-five years there was a constant struggle between the Spanish government and the Vatican which was finally terminated by the sale of an immense amount of church property and the issuance to the church of inter est bearing bonds to the amount of sev eral hundred millions of dollars. These bonds are still held by the Catholic church and constitute a large part of the Spauish national debt. For the nine months ending with March, 1898, the difference between the importation and exportation of mer chandise by the United States amounted to $470,961,693, that sum being the ex cess of what we sold over what we bought. No other country has made or can make a record to equal this. The reason is to be found in the fact that no other country has an equal di versity of climate, soil, industries, pro ducts and resources, and hence no other couutry is or could be benefited in an equal degree by the policy of pro tection. The course of the new administra tion with reference to beet sugar is be ing highly commended by men of ail parties and all sections. Secretary Wilson's latest report on this subject shows that the experiments of last year were highly successful, and that he has reason to expect that the beet sucjar production of the United States in 1898 will l»e double that of 1807, and that this will shortly Income one of the well recognized and successful agricultural industrial of the country. The value of the sheep in the United States has increased $25,000,000 in round numbers since the inauguration of President McKinley and is now the highest since 1893, while the values of other farm animals and products have also greatly increased. The currency arguments of the cam paign of 1806 will need some revision, in view of the fact that the money in the country has increased $246,000,000 since the date of the Chicago conven tion, an average of nearly $12,000,000 per month. The regular daily an that "news of a great naval battle is houriy expected is probably stereo typed and kept in stock by the daily papers.
