While slow in assuming delinito
shape, peace between the United
States and Spain seems to have
become practically assured. .Both
sides seized with alacrity the opportunity - for ending hostilities,
for while to Spain a continuance
of the war was hopeless, to the
United States it meant additional
millions of expenditure. There
was never any real enthusiasm,
outside of the jingoes, among
Americans for the war.
It was entered upon by tlio better and the preponderant element
in Uuited states society as a duty
from which it would have been
cowardice to shrink. Many were
reconciled to the use of force
by the feeling that the public was
under a moral obligation to free
the oppressed ��� Cubans. A still
larger section held that the .destruction of the Maine was an act
of treachery which could not be
condoned by any self respecting
nation. A noisy and energetic
minority, it must be admitted,
were impelled by pure taste for
military and naval adventure; by
impatience at the policy of isolation and reserve which had so long
. governed foreign relation's, and by
a passion for colonial aggrandisement after European style, lt
may, however, be affirmed unhesitatingly that the bulk of the
American -~ublic are far more
sensitive to the sacrifices of the
campaign; the bloodshed, the
waste oi treasure, the cruel sufferings of the conibatants, than to
theglamor of victory. They rejoice that, so far, the line of action
to which the nation set its seal has
so far been carried out; but many
illusions have been dispelled, and
a sombre apprehension of the difficulties thac remain checks all ten-

superiority of Uuited States arms.
Whatever else has beeu disappointing iu the war it has added
immensely! to Amerir-au knowledge of Cuba. There had been
for: years at Washington and
other centres of political feeling a
very energetic propaganda on behalf of the Insurgents. It is ..ttper-
lluous to attempt any analysis of
the motives which guided, or misguided, the operations ol' the
groitji" only too notorious as tho
Cuban Party in the .Senate. But
it is material to recall the impre-.-
-ion which, with the help ol" the
Juanta and its agents, they sought
10 convey to the public mind. The
picture was even  more
���Theunlooked for sernml to the
political career of Prince Bismarck
brought about by the act of the
young Kaiser on. whom the world
looked as a weakling, dependent
on the strong arm of the Iron
Chancellor, but who eight years
ago cast oil that support tis he
would an old glove, and became
practically -his own chancellor,
taught the nations tho lesson that
tlie worlu will wapr merrily along
even in the loss of its best intellects. Eugland lost its Gladstone,
Germany its Bismarck and Canada
its Macdonald, but'though their
loss was mourned it brought no
catastrophe and tho tide of progress still flows on.
Politics and baseball iu tlie
United States have suffered from
lack of attention this summer,
owing to the war. The indications are that in the coming Congressional elections the republicans will be successful and tliat
the party will be strengthened for
tlie campaign of 1000, when a new
president will havo to be elected.
The democrats are practically
without a leader. Bailey of Texas
has had to take a back seat, Bryan
is said not to be as strong as he
was, Hill of New Vork has disagreed with the new management
at Tammany llall, and young
Harrison, of Chicago, who is mentioned, has yet to establish his record. The success of the war will
also help the Republicans. '
The revelations of Mr. Terabah
Busted Boom Hooley in the bankruptcy court must nob bo taken as
proof that t.he press of London is
corrupt. His version of the relations between company promoters
and newspaper publishers have
confirmed what has long been
known, namely that certain financial journals in Loudon live on a
system of blackmail. Mr. Hooley
speaks about large payments to
certain papers whicli are generally
considered to be above suspicion,
but they may have been for legitimate advertisinsr. U* company
promoters want full page advertisements in papers like the Times,
the Standard, or the Daily Telegraph they have to pay I'or ic. The
leading papers of London are conducted with as much, if nob more,
honesty and fearlessness as nny
papsrs'in the world, and it vvill require something move than Mr.
Hooley's vague charges to destroy
the public faith in theni.

II.  Tonilinson.   who   left   Newark   about  i     lwo months ago for Calgary.  Alberta.  Canada:  Calgary  Alberta,  .lune.  Slh.   1S9S.  According   to   pi'eiiulsn   I   send   you  ��������� a short description of our trip across  -    to Canada, which may interest yon.  j, We left Hie Mersey on the -Sth of  April   on   the   favorite   Atlantic   liner  ; I'tuiSian. the noblesl of the lleet of  Allan liners, a splendid vessel whicli  has   just   recently   been     thoroughly  i. overhauled and refilled. Our start, vvas  most   inauspicious",      the     elay     vvas  ��������� thick with fog. and the weird noise of  '���������    log horns and sieain whistles diel not  ��������� contribute to cheer us on our eleptirt-  '. urc. Wc were held four hours in the  )   river by this fog. wliich the premier  ship of tho Dominion Hue. tho Lalira-  \,   dor. managed to miss, and tints gain-  i*    ed start on us, buL wo goi inlo Jloni-  }.    real   five  or   six   hours   before   them.  ,   The Parisian is without doubt ono of  I;    the   finest  vesels   that  cross   the  Ai-  '.'  liiutic,being   registered   at  o.SOO   Ions.  I    and very up  to date machinery, she  '    carried   a crow  all   told   of  155   men,  !'   and is commanded by 1-iieiu.  Uarratt.  .>    K. R.N.   The ollicers were in all cases  J     most affable  and  eonrtsous.  tuul  tho  ;     stewards most attentive and obliging.  i    Tlio Parisian may not be the swiftest  vessel  on  the track,  but hev captain  >   lias a  knack of  persistently   pushing  ;.    her along, taking loll of every advan-  !    Inge that crossed him. wmieli counts  I!    much, to tho distance to be travelled  {'   The passengers numbered  L50 saloon.  |l   ;'.l> intermediate, and IMS steerage. As  J',  soon iis we were out iu Hie river-lhe  olliccr   of  health   appointed   by   gov-  { eminent  niadc   an   inspection   of  the  '  steerage,    passengers,   and   a   motley  i  congregation   of   men,   women,     and  i children ihey were, comprising ni.uiy  liiitiuunliiics���������.Danes.    Irish,     Scotch.  ** Knglish. Russian .Galician. .lows, and  ��������� some Poles. To many of them a good  bath vvouid have been boiiefici-al. but  a clean bill of health was found, and  J, the  necessary  formalities  were  gone  ~through.     .Ve  were  moving,   but the.  log was so dense that iiie pace was  Ii very   cautious,   for   wc  have   a   most  ; careful and competent captain ami at  last nighl hid the land  from  us, but  |i for a long time  the lights on shore-  could be seen. At 7 o'clock the dinner  I', bell rang anel we found ourselves  in  the magnificent saloon, with its.four  long tables most tastefully decorated  ' with   llowers.        This   first   meal   bu  'board found a full comnlcmnc of passengers, whicli could not be said Tor  many   subsequent   ones.    The   aiton-  [, tion   shown, for  ihe  comfort  of  passengers  could  not b.e surpassed,  ar.d  this first dinner  was  as comfortable  'as if in a tirst class hotel  on shore,  'and as well served.   Here oue had. an  opportunity   of   becoming   acquainted  .with   our   fellow   passengers,   and   a  I'most agreeable company it proved, as  from   the   very   commencement   there  seemed   manifest   a   universal   desire  ���������.to keep from exclusiveness:    vve wore  v-more in fact like a large family party.  ���������AVe had breakfast each  day at S:".0.  -luncheon   at  J:i!0.   dinner     at     7,     a  "kettledrum",   or   afternoon   lea.   at  ,-1:30,   and  supper  if asked   for.    The  [^daylight of our  first day    o:i    board  showed  us the Irish coast, and 11:30  J"' saw us off Moville, where a tug camo  out to bring us a tew more passenger.  With   them   came  a  vendor  of  Irish  blackthorns, who found a market for  his wares at prices which seemed very  \ satisfactory'to him.' Here we parted  with   the  clergyman   who   had   ceuno  I ~w~itli--ii5~irom-i_i verpoolriiu v iiig-t-iiarge  I'of about 50 boys and girls sent out to  Canada  from   the  Tower  hill   refuge  J>at Hackney, and who were all going  out to homes found for iheni  before  they   left   England.      And   now , lhc  mighty  engines   throb,   and   the  gal-  |'. hint vessel starts fairly on  her way  ncross lhc eic_.ui.   The day vvas gloriously   fine   and   morst  of,the   passengers were on dock'to see tho last of  I, land, which vve soon did, .neither did  I've sight any more till we saw Newfoundland.   I can only give you a very  .imperfect idea of what a voyage ao-  cross   the   Atlantic   in   ouo   of   thoso  magnificent steamers is like. To those  who are used to the sea it is ono round  of pleasure, but to those who unfortunately siice.umb to the relentless fiend  of  sea  sickness���������well,   lei   me   draw  the. curtain;     it won't  last long aiiel  every one will be brighter and better  when   they  have  passed  through  the  miseries of the ordeal. We had a succession     of     bright,     sunny      days,  and a very quiet sea, and 1 thoroughly  enjoyed myself;  there was before mo  several days of just the lite I love so  v.ell, and 1 could encourage my idle-  I" ness    to    my    heart's    conlenl.    No  newspapers, no letters, thu only excitement, being the daily    announcement  I' of Hie number of miles the ship bad  made.    On     this    momentous    event,  daily swoops wore mado willi tho con-  scepienl auction  of lho  pools,  which  caused    considerable    diversion.    On  Saturday    morning wo    hael  a littlo  visitor, a'reel wingcel thrush had lighted on the rigging lo rest.   Worn out  ��������� with its   journey, it could   easily havo  lieen  caught,  but fortunately  no  one  f.took such "interest in it, and il stayed  with us some 10 or 12 hours and then  left for parts unknown.   Sunday, May  1st the sea was very rough, anil the  wind  rising,   but llio Parisian nia'tn-  . tallied   her    character  of   a  cotnforl-  ablc s'.'ii boat, and  we ha'1  very  little  | of  Ih:il   rolling,  whi'-h    its  fennel   em  some ihipu.    At IL a.m. the ship's hell  called    all    passengers    on    boanl to  church service in tho saloon, and was  so well responded to that the temporary    cliurcli was    full.   The hymns,  from    Ancient    and    Modern    Hymn  Hook.    "Eternal    Father,    Strong   to  Save." and "Angels of Jesus" soimilcd  very liomy-liko aud wero most lu~arUIy  mi ng.   Tho  murnius  prayers,���������'-. with  a  brief  sermon,  concluded   the  service,  An ''offe-rtory  in  nid  of the Scuninii's  Orphan---   Home,    at  Liverpool    raised  .Ci.  17s 'Id���������not'so  bad, and showed  that the  passengers were  mindful-of  those vvli'i had lost the bread winner  in tho perils o������ tho sea.   Lady pas  sengers are beginning to show on  dock again by this timo, manv who  eannol ycl face the saloon tables taking Iheir meals on dock. And here let  mo say thai, if ever you are crossing  lho Atlantic choose the Parisian lo  make the voyage in, if onlv for the  care iind attention your wifo will mod  wilh from the deck steward, who was  untiring in his ministration for their  eomfort, and whoso kind attention will  he remembered by manv for a long  time io I'ome. Well, the voyane was  not tin ovenlftil onr;. Wei silw no  Spanish nicii-of-wnr, and verv few vessels of any kind. Occasional I v ihe  lolling of n porpoise would aitraet  attention, and Inter on, as wo netirod  I lie banks, a school of whale's amused  us by theii'.rough play. On Tuesday.  May lire I. vve slglued low down on the  horizon a sirenk of smoke, which as  wo gradually gained em it proved lo bo  ihe Labrador, the linosl vessel of Lhe  Dominion line of oeonn steamers, who  had lefr Liverpool five hours ahead or  as. li was rumored amongst, us lhat  Captain liarrall had long had a desire  for a Lest of supremacy between lho  two mighty vessels, and hero was lho  opportunity; and the twinkle in Lhe  r.ioi-ry eye or our skipper Loid us Lhat  ho meant to prove Lo us that, tho  Parisian had no superior amongst.  Canadian liners. Hour hy hour wc  gained on licr.unlil darkness hid everv  tiling, bul her lights, aud we did not  have Lhc pleasure of seeing hor  closo alongside as we passed her in  tho night, anel never saw her again  uniil tho day after we landed at  Montreal. Evening concerts in the  music room woro very popular, and  onco lhc intermediate passengers undertook a very successful ono in aid  of the Livorpol Orphan Home, tho sale  of the programmes for which amounted to tho respectable sum of ������11. L3s,  2d. Sometimes, weather pormiUing,  wc had dancing on the saloon dock,  which was pnrlilionoil off by sails to  form a ball room, and prettily decorated with Hags and bunling: and so  fhe lime passed away, read ing.  smoking. lounging in the sun, or silling on dock chairs chatting on things  in goneral. Dock, ritioils or billiards  occupied our Lime, hul Uie oud of lho  voyage is approaching, and tho happv  company gathered .on board lhis  splendid ship will soon separate, in  most casos probably to moot no moro;  and what a company il was, young and  old, but all looking happy and conlenl.  Somo had boon the trip many limes.  Ono gentleman told mc Lhat this.was  his 03rd trip. He is it Canadian merchant and is going lhrough Lo Vancouver. Wo hay_o sighted'tho rugged  shore of Newfoundland, still covered  wilh snow, and whoa we had .passed  Capo Ray tho sea became perfectly  calm, but the'wind was bitterly.'colli,'  and as '.wo glided on our way up the  St. Lawrence to Quebec a snow storm  drove us below. Wc reached Quebec  on the Saturday morning, and landed  our steerage passengers, and obtained  permission lo land for an hour or two  to post our .loLlcrs and stretch our  legs, and-then up the beautiful St.  Lawrence river, studded with islands,  and with its panorama ol! settlements,  all speaking, of prosperity and content, ive stole up lo "Montreal and  disembarked ' thoro o"n (.he Sunday  morning, thus ending a most enjoyable  ocean trip.

Tii_a������ marriages  aro regarded as valid-for tho succession lo real property in almost every  counlry except the United Kingdom.  The bill was simply to givo the children of people having a domicile in  British colonics the character of  legitimacy, so us to enllt.1. them to  -jtircocd to any i eaily belonging to  their parents which was situated in  England." The bill vvas carried hy  a majority of -1G. This no doubt will  bo interesting news for some of The  Herald's readers.

In every greal  wreck on record hcroh-.m anil unsell-  isii'.u.'ss has be "a shown.but in this  tlwie is none. J I' reports ha true, the  horrors of a shipwreck wero intensified by a heathen brulality unpro-  (Iccenlcil in the history of llio sea.  There can ho little ilouh.t that this  disaster will be an object lesson to  intending passengers, and have the  elfeet of loading peoplo to support  tlioso companies whore discipline- i-  fairly carried out.  The prospect, for the harvest is ini-  "lenibtoilly good. The hay crop has  lireu exceedingly heavy, and given  liiiiiablc weather for tho uext two  months, a bountiful yield ir. anticipated, though thn general impression is  thill prices will fall to :,ome extent.  11 has rfeceutly beon pointed out  that. Canada and the United States  Will soon have another formidable  competitor. It has been calculated  that tho now Siberian railway will  bring under wheat cultivation a zone  o������ r-ijitJcUiiiiK liko two hundred thousand sep-iaro milt's, or about one hundred aiul'twenty-'.'eight million acres  wholly? suited for grain growing.  This area is about four times the  acreage dnveited - to wheat, in the  whole.' of the 17 states comprised in the  American union,    and nix times    the  rooms  shire,  home.  Strand  total on which lhc cereal is raised in  l-usin. The yield of wheal from such  a bolt would reach ai Lho Russian estimate per acre about 1.-100.000.000 bushels,    that   is    something   like   three  times lhe entire wheat produce of  the United Stales and four times ihe  yields of lhe Russian grain lields. it  represents about six times ns much  whoal as is consumed la tho United  Kingdom, not the imported grain, bul  lhe absolute total required, homo as  well as foreign growth. Tho West Si-  lerian railway is connected lhrough  Northern Russia wilh Port Archangel,  nnd the charge for conveying n bushel  ol grain from any pari of Western  Siberia will not be more than 13 kopeks, or  13 cents per bushel.  In speaking or farming prospects IL  will be luteresiing lo your renders to  hear lhal   ._--.00U.0O-  is estimated  to  he derived from llie sale of dairy  produce, or one-sixth ol tbo whole Income of l'i'illsli agriculture. Hul enormous as this sum is, it is not all  thai, is paid by Lho consumer for  da iry produce since wa Import from  oilier    countries    ia    Lhe    extciil o'f  ������ 20,000,000 per annum, so Lherc is  unlimited scope I'or your creameries io  develop. Denmark still takes the  load in the importation of bulior.as ihe  dairy system has been developed .by  government aid to tlie largest extent.  II shows clearly what can be acom-  plishcd by scientific training and  teaching, if such results can be obtained by such a small- country as  Denmark, there is unlimited scope for  tlie development of dairy produce in  Canada.  Miss Marie Corelli has a suite of  uc Woodhouse Spa, Linc-oln-  and ibis she regards as a  Hor noxt book she has loid a  interviewer recently, will bs,  published in che spring of 1S99. It  will bo about lhe length of Carabbas,  and tho Sorrows of Satan, she said,  mid I'm afraid it will excite the clergy  of all denominations a good deal.  The war between Spain and lbe  United'Stales oxcilcs Lho closest al-  t.onUon. The sympathies of (ho Knglish people aro decidedly wilh Lhoir  coiiRins. iind lhc struggle is looked  upon as utterly hopeless for Spam.  Tho sooner lhe Dons .put up their  thumbs and cry "peccavi" the licalh-  ler it will bo for their skins and pockets. War is noL a pleasant game, lo  play ill any limo. and when the olher  side has got the whip hand, and looks  as though thoy -woulel keep il, war'  must be very filling. There is no reason why lhc Spaniards should not  make peace .on satisfactory terms,  onlv thoir scruples, about "honor"  trick them, on to undergo slauglioer  dive. ' Spain might very profitably  throw' -their notions of honor after  Iheir ships,'and"till up tho aching  void with a modicum of common  senso.  'As vvas lo be expected the July magazines contain mauy reminiscences  of Gladstone, amongst, others the following iS given. He once opened a  workman's institute, and after the  rerememy vvas completed, the iionoy-  ablc i__nUcnian and several others  woro invited to take tea, one of the  company made llio remark to Mr.  .Gladstone that he had been speaking  lo a gentleman who knew him at Lhc  time when ho .(the statesman) was a  boy  al  school.     "What's   his" name.?"  enquired  the statesman.    Mr... .  of Liverpool was tho reply. "Indeed"  ejaculated Mr. Gladstone, "nnd did ho  icll you anything particular covering  our school days?'-- ,"Oh yes he said  thai you anel bo fought, and that you  had thoroughly thrashed him." "Ah!  T thought ho vvouid remember that:  and did he toll you what. it. was that  we had fought iiboul?" eagerly enquired the veteran with warmth. No  sir, he did not, was the reply. "Thon  I vvill toll you. He induced mo to steal  some strawberries from a field, and  when I had done so he wan led lo take  the be.-st of ihem. Now as 1 had run  all the risk of detection. I vvas dolor-'  .mined not lo loljiim h.ive J-honi^ So  wo "fought and "niTraslIed liifii (UVtV"  sluck to my strawberries, and when  you see your friend again, will you  kindly remember me'to him, and toll  him I'm not suro whether I could repeal ihe operation today, as 1 have  not seen him for many years, and I  do not know what condition he is in,  but I will mention lhis fact lo you,  the field of strawberries was where  Bold street., Liverpool, now stands."  Tho story is worth repealing if only to  show Iho gigantic strides Liverpool  lias made sine.; thoso days.
