STROTHER & LITTS, EDITORS AND PUBLISHERS Clouds on Clouds. It is evident that the whole of Europe is preparing for a deadly conflict of arms. There is hardly a possibility of peace beyond the spring. One can al most feel the dreadful events before their time, just as a veteran of the line becomes conscious of impending battle. The heavy tramp of troops on the even ing preceding a conflict, the arrange ment of the artillery, the ominous dis tribution of ammunition, the movement of the wagons and the sick to the rear, the marching and counter marching of cavalry, and the hurrying of couriers to and fro, are signs which one acquainted with war cannot mistake. The military movements throughout Europe are hardly less significant. In spite of the surveillance over the press and the telegraph and the extreme caution...

A A FICTION IN POLITICS. How the Lie, Called History, I Made Up from Some Newspaper of the Period The Tllden Letter, the Vest Case and the President's Message. There is ordinarily little use in pay ing any attention to political announce ments unless the evidence is conclu sively given. The art of correct state ment in print about leaders anil parties has disappeared from almost every newspaper. If a politician .ays a thing himself in a letter or a speech that is one thing. If in any journal, which he can not be suspected of nfnking his medium, an announcement is made concerning him, the announcement may be accepted as certainly incorrect. No list of current inaccuriea can be made complete. A few signal ones, however, can be referred to. Shortly after Mr. Tilden's death, for instance, a writer on the New York Sun, A. M. Gibson, said that Mr. Til den had mailed to President Cleveland a copy of hi (Mr. Tilden's) letter on coast defenses, which was formally ad dressed to Speaker Carlis...
