TnE war cloud still thickens and
it looks now as if Chili would open
the ball herself by opposing the
passage of the White fleet, under
command of Admiral Walker,
through the Straits of Magellan.
Admiral Walker has 6ix vessels,
but no torpedoes, and Chili has
sent six vessels to the straits, one of
which is the noted torpedo boat
that blew up Blanco Encalada.
THE JUS r CAUSE OF WAR.
The Chicago Times is of the
opinion that a war with Chili would
cost a great deal of money, that it
might extend over much time, and
that it would be unprofitable in re
sults. As to its first proposition,
the Times is quite right. War is a
costly undertaking. As to its
second proposition, it may' be right;
it is for no man to measure exactly
the power of an untried foe. As to
its third proposition, it is wholly
wrong. The one- priceless posses
sion of a nation is its honor; this
would be maintained, even if the
event of war were against us. The
man who strives to vindicate the
honor of his mother at the peril of
his life is honorable, even if he lose
liia life in the attempt. He who
does not strive to vindicate the
honor of his mother is base, though
lie should save millions of dollars
and his life by his cowardice. "The
republic," said Cicero, "is the
mother of us all," and this clause of
the Roman creed is part of the faith
It is to be hoped that there will
be no war. Chili has not a foot of
land that this republic oovets, has
not a dollar of which this country
would despoil it, has not a vessel
that this nation desires to capture.
That Chili may grow rich and popu
lous, that it may enjoy a stable
government, and that schools and
newspapers may multiply within
its borders is the wish ol the people
of the United States.
But since certain seamen of the
United Slates have been maimed
and have died on account of in
juries inllicted by a Chilian mob, of
which uniformed officials of that
republic were part, apology to this
nation and recompense to its
maimed citizens and to the families
of its slain ones is due. It is a due
that can not go unenforced witLout
loss of the national honor, and,
whether the Times believes it or no,
that is held by most Americans to
be the thing that must be preserved
at all costs and at all hazards.
Indeed, the preservation of national
honor has come to be considered as
almost the only just cause of war.
It is estimated from the most
re;ent report of the statistician to
the interstate commerce commis
sion that the total number of men
employed on the railways of the
United States during the year end
ing June 30, 18S0, was G49,301, being
an increase over the number em
ployed the previous year of 44,5.")3.
This increase is at the rate of 70S
new men for each 1C0 miles of new
line brought into operation. It
raises the average employment on
railways in the United States from
439 per hundred miles of line in
1SS9 to 479 men per ICO miles in
ltC9, being an increase of twenty
men per hundred miles of line. By
classes the report shows that em
r'nvos of railways were distributed

General oflleers 5.1C0

No healthy person need fear any
dangerous consequences from an
attack of la grippe if properly
treated. It is much the same as a
severe cold and requires precisely
the same treatment. Remain quiet
ly at home and take Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy as directed for a se
vere cold and a prompt and com
plete recovery is sure to follow.
This remedy also counteracts any
tendency of la grippe to result in
pneumonia. Among the many
thousands who have used it during
the epidemics of the past two years
we have yet to learn of a single
case that has not recovered or that
has resulted in pneumonia. 25 and

French, n Philadelphia banker and an
officer of the Signal Corps during th
war. Among the other guests were
some members of the local corps and
Col. John S. Mosby. the well-known
guerilla chieftain. Capt. French has
contributed a number of articles to
th Century and other mnr:izines re
lating to his escape from Lib by Prison,
and at thu dinner-table he narrated an
incident which has not yet beeu pub

army." said Capt. French, "and as we
were marching toward Gettysburg I

considerably surprised at this, we had

"As we left the house a man in
civilian dress ordered me to throw up
my hands and surrender. As I was
within Union lines my first thought
was that some soldier was plaviug a
practical joke upon me, and I careless
ly ignored it. but when the man em
phasized his order by pointing at) ugly

that adventure was my confinement in
