TIIKIIE was recently concluded
in England a dlvotre tilal
between two titled peison
agos who, with their family
connections and tespectlve circles of
friends and champions, leptesenled u
largo percentage of what may Tor con
venience sake be called the Hilttpli no
bility. Almost all of the testimony at
the dial was unlit to print but the
Impression which it left upon the mind,
viewing It in the most c hat Ituble light,
wiih that thole Is in England a Ktigo
number of persons in the upper circles
of llfo who lmo lnllen Into evil ways
less thtougli lnheient vlclousness than
because they have nothing else to do.
Tlio men, 'it was shown, hunted ioes,
gambled and pursued other men'H
wives. The women gambled, hunted
foxes and lllrtod with other women's
liusbuuds. The lcsult was a condition
of .society that made the Ten Com
nitindttients look lonesome.
It -would be untitle to bay that this
State of things Is typical of luitish
bocloty. It is typical only of a certain
fraction of llritlsh society, the idle frac
tion. But by way of contrast it is
pleasing to read in the London Times
that the most significant tact impressed
upon its s-pecial correspondent who ac
companied the Mosely commlslon dur
ing its study or Amoiican Industry was
the incessant personal attention given
by the Aineilcui manufacturer to his
factory and processes and the exaction
of similar attention fiotn subordinates
who occupy places of control. 'The
Times couespondent found few idleis
in Ameiica. Even the sons of million
alios weie wotklng ami the mle among
the majority of them was that they
must set an example of Induslty to
those associated with them in entei
prlses of business. America, remarks
the Times, has not yet learned to le
gaid Idleness or devotion to lrlvolous
amusements as a mailc of ( dis
tinction, and we may well hope that
she never will.
Thote wats at one time an appear

we have been saved temporarily by the

Our war with Spain, too, and tho conse

to re-invigorate tlio cm tents of young
American blood, causing even the anae

of our Hough Jlidcr picsldent has

bo conjectmed, but without question
he has been a tonic force of no small

Tho Intelligence) that Admlial Ccrvera

ot gratlllcatlou thiouglioitt tho United

in the mllltniy servlca of a foreign coun

guld Interest elsewhere, oxecnt. perhaps.
In professional circles; but the caso of
Admiral Genera is peculiar. Wo feel
suto that ho Is still regarded in this
country with a sympathetic Interest, to
wlilcu lio la well entitled, not merely In
remembranco of tho tiagedy In which ha
piuyea an honorable tliouirh a molan

contilbuted to a restoration of amicable
relations between Spain and the United

mental negotiations between tho two
countries, and will, wo hopo, make their
olDctal Intercourse permanently ugrce-
In his desperate exit under orders from
tho harbor of Santiago, aboard tho Infer
ior vessel to which ho had transferred
his ling with full knowledgo that ho was
sacrificing somo chances of personal es
cape, Admiral Cervcra was: so iratlant a
figure, and his demeanor In the hour of
litter defeat was so flni that every
American was immediately conscious of
inctcnscd respect for tlio raco to which
ho belonged. If that had been all It
might havo been enough to produco a
favorable effect upon tho subsequent
course or events. mt tnat was only tho
beginning of tho servlco which ho ren
dered. As a prisoner of war ho was so
free from bitterness of spirit, so appre
ciative of every courtesy which ho re
ceived, and so modest nnd sano when ho
found himself tho object of a suddon ad
mhatlQu which did not Invariably express
Itself hr-judlclous ways, thnt he may bo
said to liuvo been tho means of recreat
ing an atmosphere of international kind
liness in which ancient sentiments of
lrlundshtp were soon revived.
If, thoiefore, aB wo bclievo the fact to
be, few icsentmcuts survlvo among a
high-spirited people after a war of con
quest, and a better understanding exists
between Spain and tho United StatoH
than had prevailed for many years before
tho outbreak of hostilities. Admiral Cor
vera must bo lccognlzed as an influential
factor In tho establishment of those
happy relations, and there is sure to bo
much satisfaction hero, where hn is popu
