Belgium to Day has eight millions of inhabitants and Only 120,000 voters. Sixty years ago the con<5titu-Tion of the Little kingdom was thought very Liberal but since that time Universal suit rage in some adjacent countries and the wind of revolution in others have so changed things that Belgium is far behind the times. The working classes insist upon a More Liberal Constitution and unless it is granted pretty soon there will be a revolution which will end the tiny state s existence As a monarchy. To get through one thing and to begin another seems to be the whole of life to some people. The element of Well doing is forgotten there is no time allotted for that. The mind concentrated on getting on or getting through the business on hand has no Opportunity for consideration reflection comparison judgment no time for proving methods or testing results. Yet without All this How poor a thing is work of any kind even the robber and the Cut Throat have their followers who Admire their address and intrepidity their stratagems of rapine and their Fidelity to the gang. The liar and Only the liar is invariably and universally despised abandoned and disowned he has no Domestic consolations which he can oppose to the censures of Mankind he can retire to no fraternity where his crimes May stand in place of Virtues but he is Given up to the hisses of the multitude without Friend and without apologist. It must be humiliating to those Money Kings to think that perhaps Only a Day or an hour stands Between them and utter poverty that they May be suddenly summoned to Aneth ers phere to begin life without single one of the Ada vantages which made them so powerful and comfortable in this life.

Anarchy is the Savage violence of a More handful who refuse to recognize the principle that inhuman society there must be some governing tribunal and in a Republic it is the majority. Anarchists should not be dealt with sentimentally but according to Law and vigorously. A great Many discreditable things have been said of emperor William but the crudest Story about him that has yet come a Curfiss the water is the one which credits him with a scheme to Force his sister Margaret into a marriage with the dissolute Gambler and general scoundrel Prince William of Luxemburg. That an honorable woman should be yoked to such a profligate and unworthy creature under any circumstances would be most pitiable but that this Princess should be sacrificed to the greed and covetousness of her brother is absolutely revolting. These Royal marriages Are As a Rule mercenary but in this instance the infamy of the system is More apparent than usual. Rudyard Ivi rung has again broken Loose and this time he attacks new York. So much has the City disgusted him that he seems unable to find words in Liis crude but picturesque vocabulary sufficiently Strong for the subject. Everything about the town is bad and the More he studied it the More grotesquely bad it grew. It is bad he says in its streets in its police and in its sanitary arrangements. The management of the town he denounces As the outcome of squalid barbarism and of reckless extravagance.

Mrs. Sire opened Are on the crowd with a revolver and one Young lord was severely injured. In this adventure mrs. Sire did not cover herself with glory exactly for she should not have been out alone in London without an escort besides As she Only hit one of her pursuers she did no credit to the american woman s reputation with the the Patriot of heroes in Marble and Bronze.
