THE second greatest man of the century passed away last Saturday in the person of Prince Bismarck. Like Gladstone, his latter years were spent in quiet retirement; yet his death causes one to consider the immense changes which lie brought about in the status of the European Powers. He made Prussia, and not Austria, the head of the German Confederation, and lie reduced France to a position very inferior to that which she formerly occupied as the premier military power of Europe. He was the one man in Germany, who was thoroughly appreciative of the English character, and desirous ot a good understanding between British and Germans. Obstacles with him had no existence. He simply saw what was to be done and he did it. Some of his methods may not in after years bear the scrutiny of a high-class political morality but Bismarck himself would seem to have believed that— the good of his country being the object in view—methods were of little account, so long as lie attained his goal. Ho has been compared to Mr Gladstone but it would be as pardonable to compare Francis Drake with John Bright. Gladstone busied himself with Arrears' Bills and the Franchise, and hesitated to crush the Boers out of revenge, when they sued for peace Bismarck was above petty social grievances, but lie could comtemplate slaughter on the most gigantic scale to make Alsace, German. Bismarck was strong Gladstone was just.
