DEMOCRATIC PARTY. t!nrnii Hri-uthe-. ICustrr. Komr. March '. I. Out of the storm 01 popular miger which spread over Italy when tho news of the defeat of 'the army under (leneral liurntierl in Abyssinia reached here, a feeling of .great resentment toward tho Italian commander is till that remains. Riot ing has ceased. The llcervists who lied from tho country rather than go to Africa tit the call of the government for the class of ST!, are returning, mini It Is not believed any steps will bo taken to punish them. Negotiations Willi Iviiilc Menelilc liave been opened, .so It is anticipated that peace will be concluded before long, and tho war oiliec has countermanded the Instruct ions sent to various points for the hur rying forward of reinforcements to Africa. Tho new cabinet is at work and tho financial situation is brighter than, anticipated. Conferences which liavo taken place here between the Marquis dl Umhiii, the new premier, the Duke of Sermon eta mid King Humbert, and the con htnnl exchange of telegraphic mes sages between this city and ltcrlin, have been coincident with the meet ings in ltcrlin of the Austrian minis ter of foreign aflairs. Count (Solu ehowskl, the German foreign minis ter, Hnron Mursehall von Jticberstein, the Italian ambassador to liermany, Count Linza di llusen. and the im pel iul chancellor, l'riuec Ilohenloho, hupplcmenlcd by audiences with Lni peror Williani. Out of these exchanges of views litis grown a much healthier state of affairs for all Kurope. An Italian loan, it is .stated, could not hnvc been Hunted in Loudon and the hair-pledged support of I rent llritain to tliedreibund, a sup port hitlui'to involving little else than an irritating uncertainty is iu liioied to liave developed into a much Inoro cordial and solid understand ing with ;ho powers forming tlio drolbund. IJoth Ktnperor Franci-, .loseph and liuiperor Willinui liave striven to relieve the strain here, and now cutties the report that Emperor William of Uermany. Linperor Francis ,loopli of Austria, and King Humbert will "meet at (ienoti in a few days and tliat a series of brilliant fetes will mark this public proof nf the renewal of tho ties which compose the drci bund, which is intended to demon strate to all whom it may concern that Italy, instead of being friendless, 'upon the verge of bankruptcy and en cumbered by u tottering throne, is s'rong in the earnest support of tier lntinymid Austria and will be bached by iircat llritain in any great emer gen 3y. ' Finally, it is stated that before the cinperors meat at Uetioa, Kmperor Francis .loseph will have succeeded in re i u'lhng Queen Victoria with her ini civil grandson, and so the pence of l.u'opc. it is hoped, wilt be further cemonted and the possibility of a Kttropean war will be driven further 1 tO ll0 IMeK'TI'OUnil. All messages from Africa tend to confirm the imt alarming reports as totheestL-ntiif iheaisaster at Adouuh, and itlttiougii li.e olii-lal .'tftire.s b . - Hot yet been made public it is admitted that over l',',000 men wore lulled, wounded, or made pris uier.s. It is believed that the loss of Abyssinians was almost as great. The Abyssinians captured almost all the Italian artil lery, ammunition and supplies. (iencrnl Itarntieri, however, repeats that the disaster, though unavoidable under the circumstances, was not due to any desire to strike a big blow be fore the arrival ft om Italy of his suc cessor, (ieneral Ualdissera. Ho claims that the plan of battle was carefully mapped out between himself anil his generals, that ull the hitter approved it, and that it would have succeeded bad it not been fe.r the fact that the native troops under the Italian Hug became panic stricken and so brought about tho complete detent ot the Italian forces. Uiuinterested judges still hold Hint tho real cihiso of tho defeat of the Italians is to be found in the almost unceasing clamor of certain newspa pers of tliis city ami other parts of Italy at the alleged inaction of (ien eral liaratieria These apparently un just comments upon his conduct of the cainpu'gn seem to have goaded 3ilm to push forward when good pen eralfchip would have avoided such a fclep- "If lie had only wai'ed for his rein forcements," say his friends. And thin seems to be tho key to tho whole trouble. Ooneral I'.uratieti ins arrived at Jilnasowab. He Is prostrated over his defeat. He deeply deplored the dis aster, but had nothing to reproach himself with, and w.is ready to meet tiny chat ges and to endure the conse Alienees of his misfortune. ,1 Worn. in Trump Lorhril In n 1!t Car.

Within the next two or three weeks the World's fair medals and diplomas will be sent to their owners.

This Is the net "saving." Hut It will also bo ob served that the difference between tho two appropriations is $10,225,759. That is, this houee saves on pensions $5G7, Of.7 more thnn It saves on all six bills, including tlio pension bill. It actually votes away about $333,000 inoro for other purposes while "saving" nearly $10,300,000 on pensions. Tills from the party which boratos the present ad ministration for saving on pensions Is particularly good. If this is all the republicans can find to brag of at this stage of tho proceed ings how will it ho when tho session conies to an end? Not ono of thC30 bills has yet passed both houses, and thcro is no tolling how much any of them will carry when It goes to tho presl-lent. It Is ati old trick for tho houso to bo economical on paper and ask the people to beliove that Ub wicked partner, the penato, is to blame for all tho extravagance. Besides, tho foregoing bills aro only about half of tho whole number and do not Include those offering tho best openings for extravagance tho sundry civil, the naval, tho fortifications and the rivers and harbors bills. Thcso aro reserved, as usual, for tho closo of the session the time when the logrollors and tho men with Jobs got in their ef fective work with the conference com mittees.

Ills eulogy of McKlnley Is fulsome In the extreme, but ho Is right in thinking that McKlnley is tho only logical candidate of his party. Ho Is right because, as he says, McKln ley's Is the "ono name which meati3 more than any other namo upon tho gieat Issue of protection; the ono namo which Is attached to tho most perfect protectlvo tariff law over enacted by tho congress of the United States." Not that McKlnley originated or framed that "most perfect" law, for ho did nothing ot the kind. Ho simply handed the representatives of tho sev eral favored interests blank shoots of paper and asked them to wrlto what they ploaaod. What they wrote ho and lita party associates enacted Into law. McKlnley himself was not tho author of the Jaw. Ho was merely ono of the publishers. Hut his name is associated with the law, and therefore he Is his party's logical candidate. Ills party long ago ceased to be any thing but tho organized agent of tho law-made and law-sustained monopo lists nnd licensed plunderers. It has been nothing else slnco Hayes aban doned tho southern republicans In 1877. From that timo to this its business has bton to accumulate party fat by onrich- lng favored classos out of the earnings of the people. In the pursuit of this business it has propitiated the silver kings and thoroby brought a disastrous panic upon tho country.
