The Mahommedan newspapers of London have changed their tactics a
little. As long as they could they denied the occurrence of atrocities in Bulgaria, suppressed the accounts of them, or declared that they were " exaggerated," but as the public feeling rose they discovered that this course was inexpedient, and must be modified on the lines which the Premier, we do not doubt, will try to lay down. Their present cue, therefore, is to admit the occurrence of outrages and to lament or denounce them, but to assert that Englishmen are in no way responsible for them, and that Mr. Disraeli and Lord Derby are specially free from respond- bility. To attribute responsibility to the latter is to be unjust, and moreover, to run the risk of denrivi-s crie State of the aid of
valuable servook. ws, were all at first to disbelieve, and then to doubt, but now we are to acknowledge the crimes and weep or shout our fill, but to do nothing to prevent their continuance, and especially not to collar the criminals, nor to scold the policemen for not doing it. Why, the State might lose the valuable services of those officers, who might resign in disgust ! Let the electors think of that. Entire Christian peoples, as white as they are—quiet farming folk, intent mainly on gain—are being deliberately murdered down, amidst unspeakable outrages, and the Ministers who could save them not only do not do it, but steadily prevent other Powers who are thoroughly willing from doing it,—and then we are threatened with their resignation !
