THKKK was a pleasant Incident when the American commissioners called at the office of M. DelcaBse. The French Minister of Foreign Affairs showed them the table on which the Franco-American alliance and the treaty of 1798 had been signed. The call was a parting one by the commissioners on M. DeloBBae, who had extended many courtesies to the commission. NEWS has just come from Major McDonald, who Is at the head of an expedition from the south, which shows that the last link in the British chain "from the Cape to Cairo" Is complete. The Major has established stations all the way northward from Uganda to Lake Rudolph. He Is now about [to descend the Elver Sobat, which empties into the Nile.aud make his way toward Fashoda. The expo- dltlon has effected a big stroke In the way of establishing British claims to an enormous territory. Talking One Way and Acting Another. The following words are attributed to the Czar of Russia by W^T. Stead, of London, the well known editor: "I look out over the world; J study our civilization and I don't find it very good. I see nations all engaged In seizing, or trying to seize, all territory not yet occupied by European powers. I look at the results. They don't asein to me to be good." The Czar, In his action of continuously grabbing territory, and talking against It, reminds one of the temperance lecturer who told of the evils of Intemperance In glowing words, and In order to show bis audience a frightful example got gloriously fall after his lecture was over. There Is no nation today, nor for the past fifty years, that has so persistently grabbed all possible territory as that over which the Czar presides, and there is no nation, unless we except Spain, whose civilization and morals are at so low an ebb. forward, he took up the responsibility and pushed It vigorously. Now that there are weighty results of the war pending, like the true man that he l», he proposes to meet them courageously and perform them to the best of his ability, recognizing the duty he owes to the people whom this country has freed, HS well as the country itself. How different this spirit Is from Representative Dodcery's (of Missouri) who said "Goll darn the Philippines"; (or Representative Orosve- nor's, who said: "I wish the Philippines were at the bottom of the sea." Compare Mr. McKlnley's words with the expressions above referred to: "We have entered upon new paths. We are treading In an unexplored field, which will test our wisdom and statesmanship. The chief consideration Is one of duty; our actions must be controlled by it. No settlement Is admissible which will not preserve our honor and promote the best interest* of all concerned. With a united country and the gathered wisdom of all the people, seeking only the right, inspired only by high purposes, moved only by duty and humanity, we can not err. We may be baffled or deterred and often discouraged, but flnal success in a cause which is alto- nether unselfish and humanitarian can only be deferred, not prevented. "If, following the clear precepts or duty, territory falls to us and the welfare of an alien people require our guidance and protection, who will shrink from the responsibility, grave though it may be? "Can we leave these people, who, by the fortunes of war and our own actp, are helpless and without government, to chaos and anarchy after we have destroyed the only government they have had? After destroying their government it la the duty of the American government to provide for them a better one. Shall we distrust ourselves, shall we proclaim to the world our inability to give kindly government to oppressed peoples, whose future, by the victories of war, Is confided to us? "We may wish it were otherwise, but who will question our duty now? "It is not a question of keeping the islands of the East, but of leaving them. Dewey and Merrltt took them and the country Instantly and universally applauded. Oould we have brought Dewey away without universal condemnation at any tlma from the first of May, the day of his bnhant victory, which thrilled the world with its boldness and heroism? Waa it right to order Dewey to go to Manila and capture or destroy the Spanish fleet and dispatch Merrit and bis army to re-enforce him? If it were duly to send them there and duty required them to remain there, It was their clear duty to annihilate the fleet, take the city of Manila and destroy the Spanish sovereignly In the archipe- lego. Having done all that in the line of duty, Is there any less duty to remain there and give to the inhabitants protection and also our guidance." r Only 7 Days to Xmas!

The Incident which occurred at Qranada, Spain, a few days ago, in which the women of that town stoned the statue of Oolumbna, because, said the irate females, "if OoluinbUB had never discovered America, there would have been no America to whip oar nation and humiliate us. Therefore Columbus was the author of all our recent troubles, and we will show our disgust and contempt for him by atoning his statue." Philosophizing on this act of the Spanish women of Granada, the New York Tribune suggests that William Jennings Bryan (Ool. Billy) Oarl Sohurz, Joe Bailey (of Texas) and Senator Vest (of Missouri) meet in New York and follow the example of the Granada women: Says the Tribune: "Now, If our anti-ex- pansionlsta would take this hint we might be happy all around. Columbus ia as much the author of our troubles as of Spain's. He had no business to come and discover ua and lead the way for a nation here that hasn't sense enough not to grow. He might have known that we would not be content to remain a string of Atlantic Coast settlements, but would insist on spreading out and breaking the heart of Mr. Vest, Mr. Bryan, Mr. Sohurz and Mr. Bailey. It was an Impertinence for him to interfere, and downright unkind. His atatue ought to be atoned, perhaps drawn and quartered, and the aatl-expansionlsts are the persona to do It. They feel very bad. They cannot atop the country from expanding any more than their mothers could stop them from growing out of knickerbockers; but as the mothers probably comforted themselves with a good ory over the first trousers which their babies wore, so they may reluctantly take it out on old Columbus. Let Sentor Vest, Mr.J Bryan, Mr. Sohurz and Mr. Bailey assemble at the Eighth avenue circle in Central Park, and atone the statue of Columbus. Probably the circle could be exclusively secured for the occasion, and all trolley oars and other bitter reminders of progresa and expansion except the statue of the evil genius of expansion be banished from sight. There the anti-expanalonlata mlgbt work off tnolr aorrow, and when tired of the exertion go into the park and eat peanut*. Then they and everybody elee would be happy—or as happy aa anybody oan be in a world which obeya a law of growth and expnnslon, and In which things will not stay put even to please old foglea. "Women ot Granada, we thank ye for atoning Columbus i Ye may be the oauae of the soothing of weary hearta." TM Conitry'i Duty.

Th e loo gorge that formed in river between the 8»ony point at Wftt- son's crusher and the long snntlbnr opposite has moved down the river aoont 1CO yards. The movement began Saturday afternoon and several times tho big nines of Ice, miles In extent, moved in Its reelstUss oor.rRO, pushed on by millions of tons of IPO above, and tbo rising waters of the river. The power that w«s htliiiul the front of the gorge wns plainly nhowii by the rammer in which great furrows of tho white mass wan piled up f.io»p on heap, as any obstruction wao encountered. Not much udvanco was made Saturday its each time the gorge moved it was for a distance of only a few feofc. Tiio strength and thickness of the ice that spans tho river was well shown by tho ilrmiiusn with which the main gorge held and refused to give way entirely. On Sunday tho movement bogan iigiii', the river having risen from molting suowa mid local rains. This time tho Hue in tho river gave n stranger impetus to the force behind tho gorge and the vast area of white floated oil the points that, held it and pushed on down the river a distance of lOOynrde. Great ravines jwore torn in tbo sand bars and ridges of ice woro piled to a height of twenty feet in some places, The immense force moved slowly and irresistibly until a thicker and wider part of the gorge stranded iu tho narrow opening and came to astund.
