W1R CLOUD IN EiaOFE-
A general war throughout Europe seem
imminent if the Greeks persist in tbeir de
termination to protect the Cretans from
Turkish mis-rule and massacre. And sboud
war break out between the Turks and
the Greeks, it would be likely to spread
through the whole European continent like
Are started among the dry grass of prairie.
European statesmen recognize this fact
and are endeavoring to prevent the Greeks
from taking the action on which they have
decided. It is reported that the emperor
of Austria has warned the king of Greece
that if he goes to war, he will have to bear
-tifi brunt alone. It is also reported that
the war of Russia has notified the Cretans
that they must put an end to their Insur
rections against Turkish rule and cease to
menace the peace of Europe by their in
These warnings from Austria and Russia
evince the gravity of the situation felt in
the capitals of both countries. The great
powers of Enroe have been trying for
some time to keep peace in the Levant and
at the same time promote reforms in Tur
key, and it is very evident that they see in
the present dilenma all tbeir plans going to
pieces and that they will soon find them
selves involved in war.
It is not lossible to foretell at this lime
bow the great nations will be divided in tbe
event the war should spread and become
general. Great Britain, Russia ami France
have been in alliance on the Turkish pro
blem for several months past and they
would probably endeavor to act on thai
alliance and take the same side against any
foe that might arise. It is hardly in the
pature of things, however, that this alliance
FW0ild long continue since the interests of
Eng.and and Russia in Turkey are antago
nistic nd so are the interests of England
and Fra-ice in Egypt. Tteconflict of these
interests could soon put an end to any dip
lomatic harmony in the event of actua.1 wr.
"One of the most serious complications of
tbe Eastern questUMi," says the San Fran
Cisco Call, "is found in the fact that the an
tagouistus there are not merely hostilities
of race and commercial interests, but o
religion. The Christians of Greece and Ar
menia and of the Ottoman empire generally
belong to the Greek church and are, there
fore, co-reiigionists with tbe Russians and
in hostility to the Roman Catholics of
France and Austria. These religious an
tagonisms, which have little or no weight
in the Western world, are still matters of
profound importance in the East and will
have much to do with the final determina
tion of the Levantine problem. Altogether
the subject is a most complex and confus
ing one and it is nut to be wondered at that
, European statesmen resort to every means
possible to avoid the Impending conflict."

THE CURRENCY QUESTION.
Recent dispatches from Washington in
dicate that the problem of currency reform
will be submitted to a commission, and that
no actual legislation on tbe currency will
be attempted during the extra session of
congress, which is expected to be called for
tbe loth of March, but that a bill to create
the commission will be submitted. Tbe
time of the extra session will be taken up
chiefly with the consideration ot the tariff
bill. The administration will provide
itself with sufficient revenue to meet ex
penditures and leave currency reform until
December. With revenues equal to ex
penditures, radical currency retorm would
doubtless be found less pressing than it
now seems. It is the part of wisdom that
the consideration of the many propositions
now before the people should be deliberate
and comprehensive and the currency of the
nation not remodeled under the pressure of
an artificial financial stringency.
The bill in contemplation will provide
that two menibers of the commission shall
be menibers of the senate committee on fi
nance, aud two members of tbe house com
mittee on banking and currency. Of the
remaining seven, two shall be bankers of
recognized ability and experience, two agri
culturists and two merchants or manufac
turers of prominence in the stales from
which they are chosen. The remaining
member shall be selected from men versed
in the science of political economy. Of the

Jay Gould Letter la a Carlo Shop.
In a littlo old curiosity simp in Third
avenuo is an odd letter written by Juy
Gould awny back in 1854, before Gould
begun to dicker in railroads and when
ho was an obscuro and respected sur
veyor. The letter was written by Gould to
the luto A. M. Shcmiuu, aud it was an
appeal for the loan of n surveyor's level,
the young surveyor offering to givo the
topography of tho Newburg uml Syra
cuse railroad for it. Just beforo his
death a few years ago Jay Gould at
tempted to buy tho letter for $25, but it
had been sold tho day before, Not long
ago, however, tho letter camo back into
the possession of tho curio dealer, and a
few days ago ho sent his young son
around to George Gould's office with it,
instructing him to offer it for sale for
$25, the price tho senior Gould had of
fered to pay.
George Gould was pleased with the
old, worn and yellow letter. Uo read it
and then laughingly said:
"I declare, that's funny. My father
wrote that." However, ho refused to
givo more than $5 for it, which offer the
curio dealer refused.
After 42 years the letter is as plain as
the day it was written. Ctit tho paper,
a full sized letter sheet, written on both
sides, is worn at the edges. Tho hand
writing is plain and flowing, with a de
cided tendency to flourish. Two words
are misspelled barometrical and dam
ago, which are written "bernietrio.al"
. and "dammage,"
j Bnt queerest of all is the length of
the epistle. Jay Gould was noted for
the brevity of his business letters. Three
lines often sufficed him, when his wealth
was nearly $100,000,000, to transact
bnsiness involving millions. But as a
poor surveyor he needed plenty of verbi
ago to get around the loan of a $20
level. New York Letter.
