RIB The Imminent War in Europe. The overshadowing question iu Europe is the question of "war. Will there be war in the spring ? is what all the governments are ashing themselves and answering in the affirmative by getting ready for the struggle. In the debate in the imperial German parlia ment, the bill to increase the force and mr :t .q term of service seven years, Von -loltfee said : "If this bill is re jected we shall most certainly have war," which is almost the same as say ing, "We shall have war whether the bill passes or not." Prince Bismarck's long and interesting speech in favor of this bill was marked by an amusing mixture of bluntness and diplomatic caution. He admits that the friendship of Russia is all-important to the Ger mans, and that to preserve this friend ship he is willing to let the czar do what he pleases to in Bulgaria. "The friendship of Russia," he says, "is surely more important to us than that of Bulgaria." "Our relations with France continue good," says t...

The Democrats who suggest that the tariff reform members of congress should compromise with the Randallites in order to cut down the surplus revenue are short-sighted and foolish. Mr. Ran dall will consent to no revision of the tariff which will lessen the protective duties on the necessaries of life, and all talk about helping tariff reform by com promising with him is idle. The only way in which he will consent to reduce the revenue is by taking the tax off of whisky and tobacco, and to this the Democrats should never consent. It will destroy the very object for which they are contending, for with the aboli tion of the whisky taxes must go all hopes of free impor...

The objections by the Maine Representative and his West Virginia "mc too" are mainly based upon the ground thr.t what was good enough for the Navy Department half a century ago should answer now.

What is the matter with tfce "grand old party V" Ex-Governor Brown, of Tennessee, says he has no doubt but that the en tire South will favor President Cleve land's re-election in 1888. The ex-governor is a level headed man, and gen erally reads the signs of the times aright. It is said that Biddleberger, senator from Virginia, will resign, on the ground that he is too poor for the Sen ate. He would be succeeded by a Dem ocrat, which, with Democrats from New Jersey and Indiana, would make that body a tie.

She might be called also as a witness against herself, but it will suffice on this occasion to use her testimony only against the states man from Maine. In suggesting rem edies for the unhappy condition of the working-women of the metropolis, it Las been found that the majority of the people who have taken an interest in the matter have inclined to the idea that if the women would more gener ally seek domestic employment the would be better off. Gail Ham ilton holds to this view. She also ,as some other opinions on this subject, as the does on nearly every thing else.
