For several hundred years tho closo of each century has been signalized by bloodihed, disturbance and revolution, in,.(uie or more of tho great nations of the Old "World. A fe,w months ago it looked very much as if tho nineteenth century wns to furnish another instance. The United States was at war with Spain; and the great powers of Europe wcro confronting each other in Asia, like angry tigers, aim prepaung to spring at each others' throats. AH at once an apparent-change, ims come over the aspect of events, and it now appears as if the year 1900 might mark the be ginning of a new and world-wide era of peace among tho nations of tho earth. The manifesto issued by tho Czar of Russia was doubtless, to sonif extent, inspired by a realization of the growing ower of tho United States a power with which the European nations had not yet begun to reckon. Should the suggestion of the Russiau emperor bo accepted by the other European powers, we may oxpect to see arbitration take the place of war to a great ex teat. dRheJ United States and Great Britan might set a good example in this direction by leading the way with tho arbitration treaty which recently failed to eecure the approval of congress, or with n mod ification of that treaty. Such, action would probably soon be followed by otlior nations, and before many years wo might hope that tho forco of enlight ened public opinion, backpd by tho possi bility of armed intervention, would be sufficiently strong to make physical arguments among nations as unpopular and unBual as they aro now among indi viduals who pretend to civilization and culture." Tho above is an excerpt from the Los Angeles Times, and is a consummation devoutly to. bo w.ished, but will s'nrcely bo realized, for even at the time tho czar was writing hh manifesto the uglv fur on the back of tho Russian Dear had turned wrong end to and the British Lion had begun to wag his tail and emit .ominous rumblings over conditions in tho Orient; while here at home, althoueh peace appears to be, an assured fact, and tho disbanding of a, great part of our volunteer army basvbeen ordoted, yet thoy an still under -arms and subject to military orders, and but yesterday or'ern were issued from, the war dQpirt ment at Washington for all volunteers, absent from their commands, to repirt by letter at once to thior company or regimental officers, giving tho reasons for their absence. Orders woro also is sued to batallion commanders forbid ding tho. issuance of furloughs to more than five per cent of their commands. Why would all these thing bo if tUq millinnium was so slose at hand? Still,. it would be ,i, glorious day when the drums shall fliavo ceased to beat the log roll, and Peace spread her white wings from polo to pole. When the Occident nnd the -Orient shall erabraco, and lovo and peaco crown the whole human race. PitKK coinage o: both gold and silver at a r.ttio of 10 to one, without awaiting tho consent of any other nation, has been endorsed this year by every demo cratic convention, utata or "county, i'i the south, west and central states. Sil ver is a moio pronounced issue than it. was two years ago. Then the republi cans worked the international bimetal lism racket everywhere except in New England and New Yoik, Now that tin administiation opposed Wolcott's con ference and assured the defeat of bimet allism, the g. o. p. stands squarely for the single gold standard. Taking ad vantage of tho war they hop:, with the liberal use of money, to bo ablQ to carry a number of silver states. Tliethreo silver partiu8ai;6 vet, divided while' the gold standard crowd presents a solid front. Silver men must stand together orlefo.it is inevitable. John Siikkm.vn lias not. changed his views about the management of tho war, so far as tho war i.cpartment goes. "If tho man at the head of that depart ment," says he, "is not competent to manage his department so as to see to it that men under him perform their duties propcrlyjgho is not fit for tho no sition." "The story is going tho rounds," said tho intei viewer, "that an olficetiO( the war department upon whose official act depended the promptness of for warding tho supplies, has been so intox icated at times as to have been incapable of attending to bis duties." Sherman said : "If that is true, if oue soldier has died because a responsible officer -was drunk, that officer should be cashiered no, 'he should be ." Sherman filled tho blank sentence with a gesture toward his throat. If every voter in tho United States would perform his political duty as lion tly and patriotically as ho docs his private duty, we would have peace, Udcnty a.nd prosperity.

He cannot even carrv his own county, which is Cochibf . Thk demonetization of silver has done more to cause lard times in this coun try in general, and in Arizona in partic ular, than any other move ever gotten up by enemies of the people, in the his tory of the world. While some people of the far cast are in doubt as to what their trouble is nnd who struck the blow, tho men of Arizona look at their closed silver mines and their depleted purses, and know that they are hit and know who struck the blow. They also know that the republican party is pledged to those who struck that blow, is defending them an 1 is backed up I y their ill gotten wealth. 7. the nation.

No onpAvould object to the peace com' missioners receiving $24,000 a year each if Spainfiootfi the bill.

In fact, wearo slow to recognize the evils. It is different in most European countries, and in tho Australian colo nies they aro just awakening to them.
