its Possession May Weaken Great
Britain In the Event of War.
Gibraltar Letter to Philadelphia Lodger.
If war breaks out Gibraltar is the elec
tric bell of Europe, arid the button will be
pressed in Downing street. Gibraltar is
a ganglion of imperial nerves. At the
western confine of the inland sea Its pos
session has long been held to be equiva
lent to the command of the straits. Since
gunnery improved so as to diminish the
vnlue of the rock as a fortress its im
portance as protection to the pew harbor
and the British fleet has been immensely
enhanced. Not long ago. after the Span
ish-American war, the Spaniards, at the
instigation and cost of the French gov
ernment. commenced the preparation of
earthworks and the mounting of heavy
guns near the town of Algeciras and the
hill known as the Queen of Spain’s Chair.
Our foreign office was induced to protest
against these works and to accompany its
protest with a declaration that their con
tinuance would be regarded by Her Maj
esty’s government as “an unfriendly act,”
a form of words found to be quite effica
cious in the Fashoda difficulty. Their
was found to be equally efficacious in the
present instance. The Spanish earth
works were abandoned for a time; but
when Armageddon 1h announced by the
big guns above’ Europa points there is no
doubt that the Spaniards and the French
if allied, will make things uncommonly
hot for the garrison of Gibraltar and the
Mediterranean fleet. With only 5,000 men
quartered here, the British could not seize
the salient points of the attack except by
dispatching men from England. In the
meantime France, occupying interior
lines, could dispatch 100,000 men for the
purpose of holding the right positions
from which to bombard the British fleet.
This contingency renders the neutrality
of Spain a most important consideration
for England. Wooed by two suitors, and
exhausted by her recent struggle with
America, Spain wants rest and peace,
but unhappily for England she is inclined
rather to favor France than to maintain a
benevolent neutrality. In the first place
all Spaniards resent most keenly Lord
Salisbury’s recent quip about the “dying
nations.” Then again, Spain is the an
cestral home of a peculiarly intense form
of ultramonianism and Roman Cath
olic antipithy to the chief Protestant
Power in Europe has grown by leaps and
bounds in these latter days. On the other
hand, France is munching at the desert
side ol' Morocco, for the reversion of
which Spain hag long nourished ambi
tions. With France at the gates of Ceuta
and Tangiers, Spain would be even less
considerable than she now is. Hence the
hesitation of the Madrid authorities to
throw themselves into the arms of France,
for they are reminded that of old when
England wag hostile to Spain she did ill
when the two were allied or friendly
prosperity hovered over Aragon and Cas

British or intolerably difficult. Our am

SNAKES IX IRELAND.
Recent Visitor Investigates n Story
That One Hud Been Seen There
From the New York Sun.
"Since the days when St. Patrick is al
leged to have banished the snakes and
toads from Ireland," said a naturalized
citizen from the north of Ireland, who
has just returned from a visit to the land
of his birth “neither snake nor toad, as
far as history and legends show, has ever
been seen in the land of saints outside of
a menagerie. I investigated several plaus
ible stories of snakes being seen in Ire
land, while I was there, but every time
the snake turned out to be either wholly
imaginary or to be something else which
the excited beholder had taken for a
snake. I never found any one who, on
being pinned down to facts, could say he
ever paw a snake or toad in Ireland, and
I have traveled through every part of the
“During my last visit to Ireland I was
in County Antrim for about a week and
at that time there was a story going the
rounds to the effect that a farmer named
McCann had discovered a snake right in
the center of St. Patrick’s bishopric. The
story as it tvas told to me first iseemed
truthful. The description of the aiieged
snake was that it was about four feet
long, that it had flaming eyes and a
forked tongue and hissed just the same
as any regular ordinary snake would do.
McCann was supposed to have discovered
the snake when walking along the road
from Ballymena to Galgorm, the latter
being a village town two miles from Bally
mena, the market town of County A'ntrim,
The place where McCann was said to
have seen it was within sight of Slemish
Mountain at the foot of which the good
saint herded pigs for an Ulster chieftain
vho sold him and made him a slave.
That was when he took the famous step
from Slemksh to Skerry, another mountain
two miles from Slemish, which he W'as
recorded to have taken when he escaped
from slavery and began to preach to the
“The place is full of legends about St.
Patrick and I thought It too bad that a
snake should appear in such a spot. About
a dozen people told me the etory and
they all told it the same way. so I con
cluded it must be true. McCann was a
respectable man of sober habits and there
fore not likely to be deceived by the
snake associated with the ‘d. t’s.* The
farmer was corroborated by a boy who
was with him at the time. Both euld
the snake had vanished in a hole in a
‘ditch,’ os the mounds of earth and stones
in which hedgerows along the road are
planted, are called. They had seen snakes
in menageries and knew what they were.
“I started an investigation of the story,
all ihe same, and after a good deal of pa
tient work I discovered that the alleged
snake was a strav cat which had been
hinted by boys and worried by dogs until
it was mad with
hole, its eves flaming, when McCann and
the boy passed and spat at them as angry
cats do, when they came near. The spit
ting they took for the hissing of the snake

that they had no time to see what It was.

version of the story, was /lover circulated
and peop e thtre still believe that Mc
fann saw a snake.
“One time an American who was visit
ing Ireland before I came to this country
told mo he knew' of a field in which there
were snakes. I told him he was talking
nensen e, but he insisted that h 1 wjs
light. He undertook to take me to the
field and when we reached it he pointed
triumphantly to a sign at the gate w th
the w-'rds “Snakes set here.’ In another
field about a rod or two away, there was
a similar sign but with a different spell
ing. It said, ‘Sneaks set here.’
“I explained to him that these snakes
were bars of iron set on a pivot just be
low the surface of the ground, to keep
people fom trespassing. If you stepped
on the c. end the affair turned round and
the other end hit you in the face. They
were sometimes planted where seed was
fieshly sown, but as often as not the sign
was a bluff to scare pear le away. You

life than my friends when he found the
kind of snakes there were in the field. %

In Sco:land, 1 am forced to the belief in
the legend that St. Patrick banished all

From the Philadelphia Ledger.
National Park, Aug. 6.—The delay in
the transmission of a letter from Sam
Jones to the National Park Camp Meet

tho noted evangelist at the opening ser

great disappointment to a crowd of sev

of whom hod come from Philadelphia to
hear the orator-evangelist.
Mr. Jones had written that he would
reach Philadelphia at 7 o’clock to-night,
and asked that someone be on hand to
meet him and direct him to the Park

Mr. Strouse spoke on “What Came Ye

such an ugly, disappointed crowd in his
life, and he was surprised, a it indicated
that they had come to wonship Sam Jones
and nqt Christ.
“Your thought® are only partly on this
