Simla,     India,   July   10,���������Dread     of  another    mutiny  is   being   felt  by   all  .'Curopoans here.    India is in a serious  .���������date and all   the authorities  here are  nakinn- heroic endeavors   to prevent the  iprcad    of  unrest    and  the   miil'noiu  spirit thai, in spite of all  thvir efl'orU  is   spreading   like   an   infection     irom  province   to   province.     The   ci.:<o   of  this    condition  is  that   with   ll.c   war  between Itussia and Japan lor the su-  pienmcy of  the  yellow  race   has  come  a revelation  to  the ban/ars.    'J lie fact  Ihat an   Asiatic  race   has  delied     and  even   conquered   a  European   race   Inn  made the natives think.  The spirit of dissatisfaction, and  the trouble now in the air is far mou;  acute thun it was two years before the  Sepoy revolution.  What makes the situation more serious is thc ability of the 'Baboo*,' to  spread their tidings oi revolt to even  end of ihe India Empire with rapidity  and ease. The problem of how the  news travelled to the. utmost ends of  India in the days of revolution has  long- been partly solved. Since, then  Lo ill Ri pon has dignified Indian nafciv  opinion, ami the 'Baboo' can make  himself as easily heard us bis niaslor.  Lord KiU-honer's statement that the  Indian army is prneticnlly worthless,  has been circulated among the. ignorant natives to a wide extent. Lord  ��������� ui-y.on's 'tyrannical methods have  set every class a'g-ainst him personally  ami (he personality of a ruler has an  i-ffect on   India  that is incalculable.  The potential possibilities of the sit-  uaiion huve been' brought directly to  the attention of King- F.dwarcl, and  il is known thttt he has had a number of consultations with prominent  Ang-lo-Tndiuns now in Englaiul on leav  It is n fact tbnt in Central India  hundreds of Afghans are loafing ami  skulking- alone or in couples.
