UNREST IN EUROPE.
ThQ fiery Speech of Gen. Skobelefi in
Parish where it seems. lie had been im
bibing pretty freely of Freneh wines,
in which he declared that an alliance
between France and Russia to check
the progress of Prussia to European
dominion was a necessity, has drawn
the attention of. the world to these two
nations, Prussia and Russia, as rivals
for European supremacy.
Notwithstanding the fact that the
Czar is reported to have reproved his
general for his hasty and ill considered
remarks, the impression prevails tnac
Skobeleff, whether under the influence
of quickening French stimulants or
not, simply uttered the sentiments of
the prevailing powers of his country.
Prussia is not entirely satisfied that the
soldier was not talking not only his own
sentiments but also the sentiments of
the Czar, who, though he declines thus
far to father them, has not manifested
either grief -or anger at the utterance.
However tire respective governments
mav view the situation it i3 evident
there is great unrest among the masses,
who have come to the conclusion that
the clash of contending armies is only
a question of time, and may be precipi
tated at any moment, by even so small
a thing as a few minutes after-dinner
speech of a boozy officer.
With the immense standing armies
of Europe, the proximity of nations
jealous of each other, the rival inter
ests to be guarded, and the mutual fear
of hostile ascendency, leaves peace al
ways precarious and war always possi
ble. And war between two of the
leading powers may at any time become
general, for the mightier can force the
lesser in and make them parties to the
conflict whether willing or not.
It is this feeling which swelled the
tide ofim migration to this country the
past year to the amazing figures of
nearly half a million, and it is thought
will nearly double that number for the
present year. Aside from the individ
ual liberty which men enjoy in this
Republic, the dread of war and invad
ing armies does not come to mar the
day's enjoyment nor the night's repose,
nor the dread that the accumulated
earnings of years may be destroyed in
a day. There Hie subject belongs to the
government and may at any time when
the emergency arises be summoned
from his peaceful avocation and his
fireside, be mustered iuto the army and
sent out to the field to be shot at by
other subjects, in a war in which he
has not a particle of interest and in the
making of which he had not a word to
say. It is simply for him to obey,
march out and be shot at in obedience
to the men who claim the divine right
to rule him.
No wonder the toilers want to get
from under the dumiuion of such gov
ernments and make their homes in a
land where men have some rights that
rulers are bound to respect, and where
life and property are reasonably secure,
where men are men and children are
raised up to be men and women, not
the mere chattels of despots who sit
upon thrones, declare wars and seldom
or never go within reach of the missiles
that slaughter by thousands better men
The Independent party of Georgia
has constructed its platform and set it
up for the public to gaze upon. It is
composed of eleven planks.
The first ignores the binding authori
ty of king caucu3.
The second goes for a free ballot and
a fair count.
The third for an honorable payment
of all hoaest debts.-
The fourth for gold and silver as the
proper money of the people.
The fifth favors a repeal of the in
ternal revenue laws when the reduction
of the national debt will permit it.
The sixth advocates a liberal system
of internal improvements.
The seventh declares the supremacy
of national authority.
The eighth favors popular education.
The ninth opposes monopolies.
The tenth objects to the present sys
tem ef hiring the State convicts.
The eleventh protests against party
proscription and sectional prejudice.
THE GUANO INVESTIGATION
The Senate committee has at last suc
ceeded in getting Mr.hipherd.jQfPe-'
rnvian Gaan4 Scheme notoriety, iro.
Hand have elicited someiutereaung in
formation. .Thti inabilities- are the.
full story 13 told it Wilt be still more in
teresting. We clip the following from
the results of the investigation last
Monday, by which it will be seen that
Minister Hnrlbut was to be bribed into
non action against the promo'.-s of the
scheme, white Secretary Blaiue took an
interest in it that smacks,cprriderably
After describing an interview with
Minister Hurlbut Snipherd continued:
"Peru ought to have help at the ear
liest moment, and I hope you will press
your plans as rapidly as possible."
Shipherd then made a general state
ment to the effect that he (Shipherd)
never imagined that it would be neces
sary to buy any man, and never intend
ed to do so. He did, however, feel that
it was necessary to prevent Hurlbut
from taking any position which might
be violently opposed to their company.
Shipherd was asked : "Did you think
Hurlbut could be purchased V" and re
plied: "Most emphatically "
The Chairman "And you proceeded
to purchase him ?" Answer -"No, sir ;
simply to prevent him from settling
nimselt viciously anu aefceruniieuiv
against us. I recognized the fact that
it would be necessary to assure him
that it would in the future result ad
vantageously to himself or friends if
he did not oppose us."
Shipherd was then questioned in re
gard to his interview with Secretary
.Blaine, and replied :
"The interview took place at Blame s
residence, in this city, on the evening
of July 25th. It lasted until a late
hour, and was resumed next morning."
When asked who was present at that
interview, Shipherd said a United
States senator whose name he did not
feel at liberty to mention, because ne
had been informedthatin an investiga
tion of this kind it was necessary to be
very careful about mentioning the
names of members of the house or
senators. He said further that this in
t.rviAw was brought about by the kind
offices of the before mentioned senator.
The chairman suggested that Shipherd
give the features of the interview with
Blaine, and for the present waive the
question of what senator was present.
At this interview Shipherd gave
Blaine a full statement of the claims of
th Peruvian comoanv on their merit.
The secretary listened with what seem
ed to Shipherd a great deal more than
merely courteous attention, and now
and then interjecting questions, show
ing that he was following every point
with care and precision. He suggest
ed some difficulties from a legal point
of view, that we Americans had pur
chased a claim and expected the United
States government to enforce it against
Peru. After a full discussion, the Sec
retary asked Shipherd to suggest what
was wanted from our government.
To this Shipherd in effect leplied :
"At present we can ask almost noth
ing. We cannot go into court down
thereuntil Peru denies the claim, and
until this is done we have no right to ask
our government to interfere. We can
only ask a provisional remedy. Peru
is now shipping our guano and is about
to make an "arrangement to pay her war
indemnity with our guano. All we de
sire is that an official notification be sent
to both Chili and Peru that there is an
American title asserted to that guano,
and that whoever takes it will do so with
a notice of that assertion. The secreta
ry replied: 'That is not asking too
much.' Alter tins matter naa oeen
fully and thoroughly discussed and
it was made plain to the secre
tary that the company was not asking
the Uuited States government to assert
its claims, the conversation took some
other turn, and was finally closed with
the remark bv the secretary: 'Now,
what do you want me to do? Shipherd
replied in substance, as before stated,
that the government should send noti
fications of an American title to the
guano, and the secretary replied that he
would do so at once.
In further reply to questions, Ship
herd explained that the employment of
the Sentor in question as attorney was
not because he was a senator, but be
cause he was known to be a particular
friend of Blaine. Shipherd stated that
he had several other interviews with
Blaine after the one described at the
THfi NATIONAL SOLONS."

Washington, March 23. Senate.
Bills were introduced by Kellogg to in
corporate the Atlantic and Mississippi
Kiver canal company, with a' capital pf
$20,000,000 The route to be from St.
Mary's BiYer in Georgia through Oke
fenoke swamps westward to St. Marks,
Fla., and along the Gulf coast.
The tariff commission Dill, tne regu
lar order, was temporarily laid aside
after an announcement by Bayard of
t.hft sudden illness of Garland from
whom a speech was expected, and the
Senate took up the consular and diplo
matic appropriation bill.
The Senate committee amendments
were read and agreed to, and the bill
The Senate then took up the House
life-saving service bill which was dis
cussed and amended in respect to the
salaries of superintendents.
After a long and desultory debate in
which Brown contended for a uniform
salary of $120 per month, the salaries of
superintendents in districts covering
the more dangerous lines of coast, and
reported in the bill at$2,5'X) were fixed
at $1,800, and those in districts reported
at $2,000 were graded to $1,500.
Uoon an amendment offered by
Brown for a slight increase for the Flor
ida coast district, Jones, of Florida,
said the losses from wrecks were great
er there than upon any other portion
of the Atlantic coast line.
.Morgan said that but 6 of a total of
293 stations had been given to the dan
gerous Gulf coast, and spoke of the val
ue ana importance or me uuii com
merce. The bill was finally laid aside without
action, pending the motion for an ex
House. On motion of ling, of La.,
a resolution was adopted calling on
the Secretary of War for information as
to what further relief is necessary for
sufferers from the overflow of the Mis
sissippi ri er and its tributaries.
The morning hour having Deen dis
posed with the House at 12:30 resumed
consideration of the Chinese bill.
The debate on the Chinese bill was
continued to the close of the session.
The House at 5.10 took recess until
to-morrow at 10 o'clock, Page giving
notice that he would at 2 o'clock de

Trying to Suppress a Scandal.
Wash. Cor. Baltimore Sun.
Eepresentative Page, of California,
was entrusted as a sub-committee or
the committee to audit the expenses at
tending the illness and death of Presi
dent Garfield, with the bills and vouch
ers for the expenses, accidental and in
cidental, of the funeral train to Cleve
land. Mr. Page said to day that he had
collated and aggregated the bills in one
lump account, and then had destroyed
them all. He considered that was the
best thing to do, as he did not think it
was the,,, thing to have a scandal over
such a matter. Opinions may differ as
to Mr. Page's right to take this course,
but opinions will concur that it was
the worst possible course to take to
prevent a scandal.
GRATUITIES TO SENATORS.
The Senate passed to-day a resolution
to pav Mr. Kellogg, of Louisiana, $9,550,
and Mr. Butler, of South Carolina, 3,
500, for expenses incurred in maintain
ing their rights to the seats they hold.
There is no precedent for this action.
Contestants have generally been paid
their expenses, but sitting members
have not. Mr. Butler is a Democrat,
and Mr. Kellogg is a Republican, which
explains why the two resolutions were
made dependent on each other. The
practice of the Senate in making lavish
donations of the public money for the
use and convenience of its members is
growing to such an extent that sooner
or later it must be put a check to.

East Tennessee is going to solve the
immigration problem in a practical
way. About 300,000 acres of land have
been purchased in East Tennessee, and
in th8 fall twenty families of Germans
and Canadians who have had some ex
perience in American farming will be
located on the tract. After they have
tested the productive capacity of. the
soil, immigrants will be brought there
direct from Europe.
The Senate was very liberal with the
people's monev when it allowed Kel
logg, of Louisiana $9,500, and Butler, of
South Carolina, $3,500 to defray ex
pense incurred in maintaining their
right to the seats which they hold. This
allowance is unusually large and is ex
plained by saying that they had to es
tablish the legality of the State govern
ments by virtue of which they held cer
tificates of election, and the getting of
proof of this involved unusual expense.
People are getting an idea somehow
that the gentlemen at Washington are
becoming rather liberal, if they have
not been so far a long time, with the
James A. Lee, of Johnston county,
left for parts unknown on the 3rd inst.,
in company with a girl named Helen
Carroll, taking with him his two chil

The city of Charleston is excited over
an assault by two foot pads last Sunday
evening upon Mr. Paul C. Trenholm,
near his residence an Washington
street. They knocked him senseless
and were in the act of robbing him
when the alarm given by some little
boys, who happened to be near, alarmed
them andhey escaped before the police
arrived. The mayor has offered a re
ward of $500 for their arrest.
The Galveston News remarks: "Now
that the Republicans are divided on the
Chineselquestion, New England Sena
tors are denouncing the negro, and the
stalwarts and half-breeds are at war
over Garfield's dead body, it does look
as if the Democrats might flip in and
take possession. Yes, if the Demo
crats themselves don't get to squabbling,
over the tariff or something else.
The damage caused to plantations, in
cluding the loss of stock, provisions
and other perishable property, by the.
Mississippi overflow, is estimated at
$25,000,000; but if to this is added the
prospective loss of a crop, the damage
is simply fabulous.
The Edison Electric Light Company
