almost frantic, and the nonsenical ravings it his ntttred in favour of our entering the war as th« ally of Turkey have been so palpably absurd as «o have done much mora service to Turkey's enemies than to the unlucky people who afe cursed with such friends. As m rule, whatever else it lagks, the English Press has its share of good sense, but In its wsrlike fury, the Daily Telegraph his emulated the worst excesses of the Irish Press of New York or of those Chauvinist French journals, whose insane folly helped to precipitate a war which, for France, was one perfect disaster.

Nfxt In the story of the dreadful war now desolating Turkey, the annals of 1877 contain no more unpleasant reading than the record of the hundred and seventy odd strikes which disturbed the labour market of Britain in the year just past. It may safely be predicated that the majority of these contests injured the men much more than they did the masters, and as ear tainly affirmed that they did no real good to any one, and much mischief to the community. It aeemm but^m very littl* time amce *# wen, reading or hearing the most preposterous of stories con-ecrolng the wmgea men«f mnmen. mnd even chil-dren, were earning in so ue of the manufacturing districts. Also, unhappily, we read of how unwisely—not to aay viciously—these wages were too of%n mpeot Moet of the recent atrikee were of the most suicidal character, and their result has too often been simply io deprive the men of any employment at all, instead of improving their condition, aa they hoped and expected. From various causes, trade is languishing, and Stows duller, causing the employment of labour to grow scantier and scantier. Now no combination, and no trade rules will force up wages in the teeth of a declining market; and if the maalera cannut eell mt m proSt they cannot eon-tinue the employment of their workmen. Capital, after all, is limited ; and, although the masters may keep their works open, hoping for better times, this cannot be for long, if they are working at a Iojs. Thus, if the working men were wise, and their advisers honest, the present is ihe very last time they would select for a strike. Many of the employers will prefer a suspension of production to a heart-breaking and ruinous endeavour to keep their works going for the sake of men who fancy the masters arc putting by fortunes when they are really paying wages out or capital.
.. .... more days, and the meeting of Parliament will salisfy much curiosity; and, ma usual, dispel many illusions. That we are on the eve of war we very much doubt; for, with Lord Carnarvon, we do not see that the situation has con-siderably altered since Mr. Cross so clearly wnd explicitly pointed out what we required as due to ourselves in the conduct of the war. A" the same time it is unfortunate for the friends of peace, in this instance, that they are afflicted with the apparent alliance of the gentlemen who are for peace at any price. We see no reason for onr plunging Into the almggb nnw, although there were plenty why we ahonld have joined 1 urkey at the onset; but it is for very different reasons to those by which Messrs. Gladstone mod Bright are moved. Those gentlemen would see no reason for war if the Russians were in Kent, and from the safe recesses of the Russian head-quarUra would probably insult their countrymen for resisting ihe invmders. Their arguments prove a great deal much. We believe ibis country made a great mistake in allowing Russian ingenuity to tie its hands by the foolish talk about Turkish atrocities. These were merely advertised in the interests of Russia, and whether real or Wae, h.ve eerved her pnrpoe^ well. Our mlly is ml most ruined. Our own prtttige is smirched, and, sooner or later, unless •• like to become subjects to Germany or Russia, ahall hmn to pay dearly la blood amd trem-for our folly in mceemtin* the lemderahip of such enemies to the well-being of the State as the Radical leadera have ever proved themselves
That there is a general feeling of dislike to this country being unneeemmrily Involved In hoWi-lines is hardly wonderful when we remember how tremendous a weight of debt and difficulty Knglmnd has incurred from its share in previous European contest* In which onr concern mt the beginning, and our gain at the end. were often hardly obvious. Indeed it is an article of faitb with more than one school of politicians that this country ought never to have gone to war at all. Taking our wars one by one, it is easy to make out that each, by itself, was useless, and that each contest only added to our burden of debt. But when we dismiss the twopenny-halfpenny sort of back-slum logic by which this result is obtained, mud conaider our hialory coolly mnd broadly, we find that these so-called unprofitable wars have made us, or our race, masters of best part of the more valuable portion of the earth's our face, and have placed a quarter of the inhabi-tmuim of the world under Brltlah rule I Power and fmme may be worse than nalese In the eyea ml the gentlemen who are so anxious to make hnglsnd as mean as themselves ; but philoio pbers of a broader school know that they have a Y*?
