Afar Off , According to advices from excellent au thority not even the mcst sanguine of those concerned now o.\pect any substantial pi og ress to bo made at the coming peace con ference toward the disarmament or even a suspension of armaments. The czar hlm- eelf and his entourage nro reported to have lost their illusions on the subject and it Is l' said ' that the proceedings treating of mil itary and naval questions will be confined to the meiest generalities None of the dcc'slons ' will be binding and oven In the matter of international arbitration , If any thing is agreed to , it will not be absolutely obligatory. The Biltlsh newspapers this week have warmly token up the question of Emperor William's -choice of Prof , von Stengel as a delegate to the conference and it is pointed out , judging from his writings , ho is a declaiod advocate of war and not of peace. Thcioforc , the papers heie confess to being nonplussed by his appointment , and declare that the emperor cannot deslro the success of the conference If ho maintains his nom ination. Extracts from Prof , von Stengel's pamph let , "Der Ewigo Filede , " ( "Tho Everlasting Peace" ) have been ropioduced. Some of his references to America are decidedly inter- cstlng. After declaring that the Germans , leist of all nations , should support "the fantastic aspirations of the friends of rcace , " he sn > s : "Tho Americans , intoxicated with success , will strive more and more to become the dominant power and dictate their law to Europe in nny contest between America and Europe. Shall Germany stand peacefully on one side and bow humbly before Amer ica ? Certainly not. This Is already impossi ble , because political dominion Is also eco nomic dominion nnd Germany must be po litically nnd militarily powerful if it does not wlih to go to economic destruction. " Further on Prof , von Stengel declnies ho docs not know whether it wns "mere mad ness or crime when perpetual peace was preached to the German nation , and describes the c/.ar's icsciipt as a "bombastic docu ment. " David Christie Murray , in the London Morning today , remaiks that Euiopo Is nnv- lous to learn whether , after this frank ex pression of his opinions , Prof von Stengel's appointment will bo confirmed by Emperor William , adding thnt If so It would be a saving not to hold the conference nt all. llcnppi-iiraaco ol SnllNlnir > .

American Iniliintrlal Competition. American Industrial competition has again , como pi eminently to tlio front this week. Hardly a day has passed without an article on the subject in the London newspapers. The Atbara bridge contract , which has al most assumed the proportions of a national question , came before the House of Commons on Thursday , when the government was asked a string of questions on the subject , to wjilch the parliamentary secretary of the foreign ofllce , Right Hon. St. John Uroderlck , was only able to reply that he had no in formation beyond what was contained In the report recently issued by Lord Cronier , the British agent in Egypt. The Times has printed n. lengthy article on American competition in the Iron trade and called attention to America's Jump in imports of lion and steel , one result being that English prices and cxpoits alike are rot entirely fixed by homo or continental competition , as they used to be , but by the prevailing tone of the markets and Industrial situation generally In the United States. It adds that a notable case In point was the combined effort of the Hrltlsh rail manu facturers to keep up the price of heavy sec tions , which resulted in the partial ruin of that branch of the business , the Americans taking the orders instead of the British. Continuing , the Times remarks"The sit uation is truly serious for the British manu facturers , who arc asking two fundamental questions'Whether American competition must Inevitably regulate in the future Brlt- ish exports and prices , and whether It Is woith while struggling on under such an overmastering Incubus. ' " Dealing with the imports of Ametlcan manufactures the Times thinks that the prospects arc rather brighter and sa > s. "Tho Hrltlsh manufacturer's mind Is Homo- what relieved by the fact that prices in Ameilca are rising in a manner which must satisfy even the average American aspira tions for a boom , the duration of which Is the uppermost topic of concern. " The mtlclo concludes with the hopeful remark that theio Is less reason to apprehend a flood of American Imports of iron and steel In 1S99 than there was last year. The nowspapcis in the Iron-working dis tricts arc taking the matter up. The Darlington North Star sajs : "Tho Amoil- can entry into British markets is a positive danger. Every one knows It is never safe to let a customer go elsewhere. There Is good reason for all Interested In the Iron and gteel trades in Orcat Britain to seiiously consider the question. " riwlit on huiiilnj IMipoi-H. The non-conformlhts.

The mlnlstcis are ap pealing to their congregations lo pledge themselves to not read n newspaper pub lishing a Sunday edition. The British Weekly calls on the church to fight the battle and advises that the boycott bo extended to every publication of the firms Involved. The Methodist Times urges Methodists not only not to buy the news papers , but to Influence tradesmen against advertising in them.

If the remedy in busi ness life were as easily found as in the ills that beset humanity , there would not be so much misfortune. In the latter case , multitudes when \ attacked by rheumatism , scrofula and s other diseases , flee for protection to 7 Hood's Sarsaparilla , and they find there I a sovereign and specific remedy.

The meat inspection bill In the Itcichstag and the Midland aual bill In the Diet have engrossed attention this week throughout Germany. The agrari ans and reactionaries oppose both measures , and the ultimate fnto of the bills will bo interpieted as evidence of the lighting strength of the parties. The canal bill occupied more time In the Diet than did the meat Inspection bill in tlio Helchstag , the first rending of the lat ter requlilng two dajs , while the former took the dajs Both bills have gone to spe cial commissions , where they will piobably be much altered , possibly more than ac ceptable to the government , in which case they may bo withdrawn. The ranks of the opponents of the canal bill were strengthened this week by the accession of Union von Stum , also called the "Coal King , ' " and former bosom friend of Empeior William , a fact which Is nurh commented on in view of his majest'B predilection for the project. The , govern ment thus far does not expect the I'tulro failure f either measure. Regarding the meat Inspection bill , which more directly touches American Interests , there were mail ) intetestlng features in the Helchbtag debate. The leading agrailans made a point of aiming their remarks and gcstuies nt Prof. Stiles , the scientific nt- tacho of the United Stntcs embassy , who was present during the whole debute , but who hns now tinned for homo on account of family matters. Trichinosis was baldly discussed by any of the two Bcoro speakers ) , and tlio fhnigo that Ameikan pork frequently contains trichinae , which until a year ago was con- Btnntly reiterated In the press , Ilelchstag and Diet , was not once made on the floor of the house. This shows that the liicfutnblo scientific proof to the contrary advanced by Prof. Stiles ban been accepted ab conclusive by even the wildest agrarians. .Vrmj llccl' PlnjN n I'art.

" It Is nut of the question that the bill can pass in its present shape and It is merely n question as to how much it can bo altered without becoming unacceptable to the government. Its opponents wish above all the following changcu. The abolishment of the provision maklns n double inspec tion compulsory , even on cattle slaughtered for domestic ueo , to put foreign meat on the same footing as domestic meat in the matter of inspection : to take the cxecuti-in of the provisions of the bill out of the hands ; of the IlumUaratli and fix them blndlngly In the bill , In order , as one speaker said , to "remove it from the diplo matic tinkering field with foreign coun tries" If Us opponents aciompllsh this , as geeins to be llkr > l > , the bill will bo unac ceptable to the government and will uu- ' 'One G ° ° d Turn Deserves Another.
