la such a divided condition of cxpeit
ilplnlon it Is eildent that the eryiim
need Is for more evidence. It Is the
sine cure for skepticism. In one issue
of a lending Xew Vork contemporary
tho other day we found two in'teiestliiK
statements of fact which bear upon this
controveisy. One was In an Interview
with Senator Doiiew, tho bililuKUonii
who had Just stopped down the Kang
plank with a iharaeterlstlc budgot of
news, opinions am) gossip. Ho was
asked to tell of Ihe inoio notable ob-i-ervutloiih
of his iceeiu Kuiopean jour
ney, and among tho i ('collections lm
mentioned was this: ""Wo luul a veiy

piled that she had stiueli the fog and

Tht other exhibit of testimony is In
thKjtflrm of a dispatch trom Queens

Kngland nnd Germany have It UIIp as
badly and am making qultf as iltll

I5ecalle In a recent speech Jllnlster
Chamberlain, the nctuul head of the
Hiltlsh Boveinmellt. toolt exception to
lontlnontal crlllolsm1' of the manage
luenl of Hnglnnd'H war In South Af
l lea and especially resented the chaige
of unwarranted haibatlly, saying that
It was not f haraclerized by the e:
i esses which marked a number of pre
vious wui", which he named, among
them lielnir the Fianco-l'russlun toh
lilet, an uutbuist of indignation swept
over Oeinmtiy unl gicw so ilneaten
Ing that at last the German chancellor,
111 a speech In the lclchstag, had lo
take note of It and Indicate dlsappioval
of I'liambei Iain's allusion. This he did
In language which was meant both to
appease Ihe excited homr populace and
indicate diplomatically to the British
government that It might wisely in fu
ture loiego such iiiovoeatloas of lul
ta t ion.
I'p to this point the episode was
amusing uithor than seilous. lint
now comes "ISiummngeni Joe" with a
new "defy" for the Germans, in which
lie practically tells both the Geiman
clninielloi and the whole Geiman na
tion lo go to Halifax, If they do not like
his style. And --o the jingoes on both
sides oL tlie Xoi th ta aie making ugly
laces at each otlu r and whipping up a
war spirit over nothing at all. AVio
heads, ot com se, will pi event the folly
fiom going too far: but It has already
gone much fai ilier than theie ever was
any ncicslty rf,i.
The llmr. over the exclhe iiucjtlon in
Xew Yoik has levlved speculate c talk
about separating tho city of Xew Yoik
lioni the state ol the same name, and
electing the city into a state by itself.
One uigumenl oli'eied to piovc that this
would be fair is that now the citizens
of the clt pay moic than their shaie
of the taxes of the state. A report le
ivntly issued by the tax conmiisslonei"
shows that while the tost ol Hate gov
ernment lur each inhabitant of the ilty
is $1.70, tlie cost tor each inhabitant of
the other counties is onlj, 2 IS-10 cents.
Of the state's revenue from indiiect
taxation tlie ilty pays moio than two
thluls. So far as population goes theic
can be no doubt ot the tllj's ability to
make a lespectablo state; but like some
of the new count schemes hi Pennsyl
vania tills new siute scheme is unlikely
lo get be oud the coavei'-utioual stage.
In a loner "to AYalter J .Uallarcl, of
Schenectady, X. Y l.conaid AVood,
goveinor geneial of Cuba, says:
"Theie is mi probability of any nimble

been pioduelive of very little excite
