It wül be a surprise to read the following editorial f rom The Bavarian Fatherland ia reference to the recent troubles in Zanzíbar: In Zanzíbar a dranken Prussian sailor woundad a native. Thereupon a general massacre vas threatened. A detachinent of marines was aocordlngly landed f rom the crulser Ielpsio to protoot the besotted Prnsslan swine and the Germán eonsulate to whïch the Prussians had fled In thair tvror trom the furyof the "rabble." Whoerar does not f all down In the dust bef ore a Prusslau belongs hencelorth to the "rabble." 80 it was In Somoa, 80 it was here, so it la everywhero. First a Prussian geta drunk. Then he raises a row and insulta whoe-rer comes witbln reaoh of hls rude flats. If this Prussian bruUUty lsresented, then a "detachment of marines are landed," the devil is let looae and the blood and Uves of a host of innocent persons are sacrifleed.

Therefore, thy most be "civülzed" Prussian fashloiL
