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
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

volunteer army basvbeen ordoted, yet

for their absence. Orders woro also is

than five per cent of their commands.

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.

In the United States wo are slow to
recognizo the need of mining laws which
nro intended to do away with some of
tho evils effecting mining", or at least
reduco tho number ns much as possible.
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.
Prominent, or ratlter first among them
is tho fact that poor mining endangers
the lives and health of thofo ongaroJ
in it. Bad work, bad timbering and

but each year send scores of men to

the health of otherscores. Itgocs with
out saying tlut..a)l these things can
he largely, If-notaltogt'.tbor, prevented,
by haying better workmen and better
superintendence. Tho way adopted to
regulate tho evil is to provide for skillful
and adequate inspection, as well as
lii'ensiiig, after examination, all mine
superintendents and foremen, and al
lowing none but such to act in those ca
pacities. It 1b time that our Yankee
