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

All messages from Africa tend to

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

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.

Totals $175.59S.270 $185,121,102
The dllTercnco between the totals, it
will be seen, is $9,822,820. 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

nothing but tho pension hill to brag of

find themselves after tho adjournment?

Chicago Chronicle: Senator Thurs
ton is right. 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. Iu tho pur
suit of this business Us organs and
leaders have boon lying about tho
causou of tho panic for two years, al
though they admitted the truth in the
summer of 1883.
McKInloy is Just the man for the
