Turl|ulance doubtless  will continue with  spasmodic disorders.   The-plans of social democrats  and revolutionists to provol'e dissat-  ' isfaclion among  the^ troops, and coordinate  peasants   and   workmen    ">r  ��������� the creation of a state of general anarchy have ,signally failed.'

Everything  now depends on Vice Admiral Rojcsti  vensky,   but  cool  observers  are more  and more convinced -.that the reforms  of the Russian state, like all other  predecessors,   will come  from above,,  and   not  from below.

Certain drops ot  water, more or less, overthrew Napoleon. In order that'Waterloo set  an end to 'Austeili'tz providence needed only a little rain; a cloud crossing the sky out of season sufficed  for the downfall, of a world. The  battle of Waterloo���������and this gave]  Blucher lime to arrive��������� could not  commence until half-past eleven.  WJZl. .'teeausc the earth, was soaked.  It was necessary to wait until it  grew a little, firmer before the artillery could manoeuvcr. Napoleon was  an^officer of artillery and he showed  the effects of it. .There 'was some-  th'ng of the shooting gallery in his  genius.

R. P. RITHET,  cea's-iiigly- he confided this business lo  the cannon ball, a ghastly method  which joined to his genius for fifteen  years kept this sombre pugilist, of  war invincible The 18 th of "June,  1815, he counted more than ever on  the artillery, since numbers'were in  his favor. -Wellington': hud only his  15!) cannon; Napoleon had 210.     .  If the ground had been dry and the  artillery     able  to     roll,  the action  would have   commenced at six in the  morning, and-  the battle would have  acen gained and ended at two o/clock  three Jiburs before the Prussian catastrophe.   How    much ..to'blame-was  Napoleon for the loss of this battle?'  Is the shipwreck to be blamed on the  pilot? -Was the accident physical ric-  cline of Napoleon complicated at this  time by a   certain 'inward weakness?  These.twenty years of war, had they  used'up     the sword     as well as the  sheath, the soul as well as the body?  Had   Napoleon     lost the instinct of  Victory? Was     he.seized with a supreme . folly a,t the age of forty-six?  Was this Titanic charioteer of, destiny no more than a great breakneck?  We do not     at all believe this. His  plan of  battle  was,  by.general  con-  fession,_a masterpiece: to go straight  to the centre,    of the allies;���������' to make  an'opening in the enemy; to cut him  in two     and push the -British half on  if a I and  the     Prussian half on Ton-  gres;    to shatter .Wellington and Blucher; to    carry     Mont St. Jean; to  hurl the   German into the Rhine and  the 'Englishman into the sea���������all that  was Napoleon's   plan iii this engage--  mciit.  * What we admire most of all in a  contest like that of Waterloo is the  prodigious skill of chance; that night  rain, that wall of liougomont, that  sunken road of Ohain, Grouchy deaf  so the cannon, Napoleon's guide who  deceives him, Billow's guide who en-"  lightens him���������the whole cataclysm  w������\S marvellously managed. On the  w'holc we say. that Waterloo was  more of a massacre than a, battle.  Waterloo is, of all set battles, the  one that has the smallest front for  the number or combatants' Napoleon  a mile and three-quarters, Wellington  a mile���������and that with seventy-two  thousand combatants on each' side.  From that destiny u-ose the carnage.  The field of Waterloo has today the  calm which belongs to the soil, the  impassive support of man-, and it resembles all plains. Hut at night a  kind of visionary haze detaches itself  and if perchance a traveller saunter  there, if he look, if he listen, if he  dream like Virgil in the funereal  plains of Philippi, an hallucination  of the disaster possesses him. The  terrifying 18th of Juno iues again;  the false hill built as a monument  is effaced, and the Hon somehow vanishes; the field of battle resumes its  reality; lines of infantry undulate  the plain; furious gallops cross thc  horizon; the awestruck dreamer sees  the flash of sabres, thc glint of bay-  onety, the flare of shell, the monstrous interlacing of thunders; he  hears like a rattle iu the dejUhs of a  tomb the vague clamor of phantom  battle. These shadows., they arc gren  adiers; these glimmers, they are cuir-  rassiers; that skeleton is Napoleon;  that other- skeleton Wellington. All  this is no more, and yet it moves, it  fights. The ravines tolvc themselves  in purple, and the trees shiver; there  is a fury even in the clouds, and, in  the gloom, all those savage height.*-.,  Mont.

Absolute     right  applied  to  the '    Chicago strike  or any  other strike,    or to anything else for  that matter,  is a very limited right.  The t\\c;ity-li\c garment* workers had  a right to    strike, the teamsters had  a  right  to     strike in sympathy  too;  and all the rest, oi the -,-nioii labor in  Chit-ago had a light to strike in sympathy,but, when  the garment workers  quit their jobs,     when the teamsters  left  their tennis,     they had no more  right whatever on the premises. Tlic  mere act of striking terminated their  lights, the other man's rights began.  This \iew .of tlie matter mav seem  n  iiiisyiiipali'.ictic, hut it is not. Tt is  (he \ic\v that must be taken by every friend of labor, and every work-,  j ing man, if labor organizations are  l to be si cccssful, and if strikes arc  to bo free of .violence.
