EMPEROR William of Germany left Berlin last week on his way to Constantinople and Jerusalem. In the latter city he will take part in the ceremony of dedicating a Protestant German church. It was reported that an Anarchist plot had been formed to assassinate him, while on the way, and numerous arrests were made. The Emperor is accompanied by the Empress and a number of officials. They reached Venice on the 13th inst., and proceeded the same day for Constantinople.
THE strikes in Paris appear to have subsided, and a dispatch on the 17th says the troops have been withdrawn from the yards and other places in which they have been stationed since disturbances were threatened. The agitation of the Dreyfus matter is less acute, but as the Chambers are about to resume their sessions soon, it must again revive. It seems doubtful whether there will be any "revision” of the trial, after all, and whether the Premier, M. Brisson, attempting to secure it will not cause his Ministry to “fall" by vote of the Chamber of Deputies.

-By an extraordinary manifestation of energy, the Powers" that remain in “concert" in relation to Crete, are compelling the entire withdrawal of the Turkish troops from that island. The Turkish officials, by their usual twisting and delaying, have endeavored to avoid it, but this time the Powers seem in earnest.
-At the Pennsylvania State Convention of the W. C. T. U., at Reading, on the 17th inst., Rebecca B. Chambers, of West Grove, was reëlected President. Resolutions that were adopted provide, among other things, for the petitioning of the Legislature to prohibit the custom of treating in saloons.
- The Spanish civil courts within the Philippine territory have resumed the exercise of their jurisdiction, subject to the supervision of the American Military Government, which reserves the exclusive right to exercise criminal jurisdiction.
-Pittsburg is to have a new Union railway station. It is to cost $1,645,000, and will be very like the Jersey City and Philadelphia stations of the Pennsylvania road, which is to build the structure. It was badly needed.

TERRIBLE riots occurred at Virden, Illinois, on the 12th instant. A train load of imported” negroes arrived to take the places of the striking coal miners, and this caused a battle between the Sheriff's deputies and the strikers. Thirteen men were killed and twenty-five wounded. Governor Tanner sent troops to the scene, instructing them to quell the riot and protect life and property, but not to allow any importation of negroes.
He has freely expressed the opinion that the mine owners are responsible for the blood shed, and they declare him responsible.
The political “campaigns.'' in Pennsylvania and New York continue very earnest and animated. In the former John Wanamaker began an extended speaking tour on the 17th instant, and the three candidates for governor, Stone Rep., Jenks, Dem., and Swallow, Ind., are all speaking daily. The result seems uncertain ; there is no denial that a very large shift of voters has been made to Swallow, and those in charge of his campaign are confident of his election. In New York, Roosevelt, Rep., and Van Wyck, Dem., it is believed will have a close contest.

A PARIS physician has lately nipped in the bud, so it is reported, a habit which might have become as dangerous as the use of morphine. A woman of fashion had tried perfuming herself by subcutaneous injections, and found that it was quite possible to give the body the fragrance of the lily or the rose. But her example was imitated with nearly fatal results, and the physician's warning has put a stop to the fad.
