The Columbian says the first

The butter is neatly packed in

A noon many people here are
somewhat acquainted with Locks-
ley Lucas, of Ladner, who was arrested a short time ago for obtaining money on false pretences. He
has within tho last few days been
sent up for trial on a more serious
offence, that of betraying bis young
sister-in-law whilo residing' with
him, This is a class of news tbat
we do not readily lend onr columns
to, and those who want details will
need to go to the city papers. Of
the merits of this particular case
we havo nothing to say ; but we
hold the opinion strongly that a
man who dishonors his own roof-
tree and uses his position of protector to debauch his relatives
should be flogged.

Philadelphia, Pa., July 26,—
Lawyer Wm. A. Shoemaker, who
represents II. II. Holmes, made a
suggestion yestorday; "Did it over
occur to you/' he asked an Associated Press reporter, "That Minnie
Williams, who was liiuulercd by
Theodore Durrant in San Franeis-
eo last April, was about, the same
age as Minnie Williams of this
case, that sbe was not known in
that city arid had no relatives?

It is true that tbo Wifliams girl
left Holmes and said she was going
to Europe, but there is no positive
knowledge oven to him that she
did go."

Women Students at Cambridge.
The eutries from Girtou and Nown-
bam colleges for tho various tripos examinations at Cambridge this year show
a steady increase. Over 80 students
httVO Within tho last threo weeks submitted thomsolves to tho test which secures for a man his dogreo in honors,
whereas all that a woman has to bIiow
for tho samo work is a "parchment fair
of grucious seeming"—a document
which, however, docs not imply any
university st aiding. With tho results
of tho lost few yonrs beforo us, does it
not seem stnmgo that women should
still bo debarred from receiving that
recognition of their work which would
bo fair ta them, and which would also
bo moro cosily understood by those less
closely connected with tho university?
So far tho results nre known In two

Her Ability ai a Captain,
Woman is gaining in tho industrial
pursuits and lias invaded nearly overy
branch of industry in tho cities, but it
remained for Miss Lizzie o. Campbell to
demonstrate tho ability of woman to
enpo with thn various and varied difficulties of canal navigation.
Hor fatbor, James ('. Campbell) wns
for many yeurs a canal captain ami ran
bis bouts from New York to llulTnlo
with SOmO degree Of profit. When ho
died three years ago, ho wus tbo owner
of two boats—tho SUvor Gloss and tho
James Campbell—both of about fioo
tons burden.
Tliis properly bo loft to his wife, an
ngod uml invalid woman, uud to his
daughter Lizzie, a young woman of 80,
Thero was neither brother, unolo nor
cousin who could l>o called upon to until'finite tho captaincy of tho boats when
Mr. Campboll died, nml for a timo tbu
two women wero in a quandary.
Alt old OOUalboat has very little
value intrinsically, hut furnishes a most
comfortable inoomowhou properly roan<
Miss Lizzie decided to keep Iho boats
and ran thom herself for three years.
Sim has attended to all tho details,
hired tho mon of tho (Tew, bought hor
own stock and made arrangements with
tlio shipping agents.
Besides all this, she lives aboard tbe
boats, cooks all tbo meals for her mother, herself and the crow, doos the family washing, uud withal Is cheerful and
Miss Cuinpboll is a large, pleasant
faced woman, who looks us though sho
thoroughly enjoyed her novel business.
In n short interview I hud with hor in
hor neat but small cabin, while sbe was
preparing the dinner for her crow of
four men, she said:
"Yes, I've boon in this business for
threo yeurs for myself, but am an old
cannier. 1 was brought up on a canal-
boat, nnd of course whon it became necessary for mo to tako bold of the management of our boats I know n good
deal about tho way of doing business.
Still I had lots to learn, but aftor a few
trips muuaged to pick up all that was
"Of course when I first went to nu
agents1 offico things seemed a littlo
queer, aud the agents evidently thought
it queer also, but both they and myself
havo grown accustomed to tho conditions aud get along with as little friction as do tho men folks, though somo
of them, I believe, claim thoy do not
liko to do busiucss with a woman."
All along tho canal I found that all
tho boatmen and shippers were loud in
thoir praisos of Miss Campbell's abilities as a boat owner.
She has tho reputation of boing an
exacting captain, demanding full labor
from her help, but withal just She
keeps her men to the mark and knows
immediately what work has been loft
undone, or if hor mules and horses have
not been properly cared for, and if necessary can harness and attend to thoso
adjuncts of a caualbout herself.
The shippers recognizo hor business
capacity, and in appreciation of tho active supervision sho exercises over her
cargo givo her tho highest rates on
freight, both going west or coming cost
Thoro have been many chances for
Miss Campbell to change tho name in
which her property stands, but so far
none has been accepted, and the two
bouts and the snug bank account, from
all indications, will remain for some
timo to come in hor maiden name.—

MissMolln Htanleyotta Titus of 101
Kast Eighty -second street, one of 80 applicants fm- admission in the bar of this
state, wus present yesterday morning in
tho general term of thn supremo court
when it was uuunitnecd that sho had
successfully passed llm examination
hold ou Saturday, Julio 10, uud tbat
after being sworn In on Tuesday she
would bn entitled to practice.
The list of successful candidates was
read oil', and when the name nf Miss
Titus wus reached a great cheer wns
sent out by the 70 young moll who were
candidates, li was thn Hist time tbat a
woman hud been admitted tn thn bar iu
this department. Miss Titus flushed
vividly und half roso, bowing. Thou
she wailed until (lie rest of thn names
bud been aiinnuuced, After thnt sho
was surrounded by her friends with congratulations, uud when sim left tho
Courtroom she was smiling happily.
Miss Titus is alioul ..'il years old, but
she appears older when she talks, because sho is so earnest. She is of medium height, has InrgQ dilrk blue eyes
and light brown buir, which she brushes
from hor forehead. When shn smiles,
who looks very jolly and shows white,
even teeth. When sho doesn't smile,
sho looks terribly serious, and thero is
a suggestion of a frown ovor her brows.
She has a firm mouth and a firm jaw,
mid shn also has au argumentative way
of poking her chin out when sho talks
That is her main superficial Indication of a legal habit of mind. Otherwise hor manner is marked by extreme
womanliness, almost dillldeuoo. It
strikes yon that she'll keep in Ihe background until tho opportune moment,
and that thon she'll get to thn very front
row without delay. Mho is rather quick
iu hor movements and decided, and her
speech does lint hesitate.
"What first put it into my mind to
become a lawyer, "Miss Titus said to
a Sun reporter, "was tho fact that onr
family hnd long been involved iu somo
legnl difficulties. Besides tbe bother
thoro wns the expense, und I determined to know somo law for myself. That
was my first idea. I bad a good chance
to carry it out then, too, because my father was ill and somebody had to sit up
with him. I thought it would be a great
thing to do my studying whilo I was
sitting by his bedside nt nights. So I
got somo lawbooks, and that's tho way
I began. I found law interesting, and I
soon began to liko it very much, Aftor
awhile I camo to tho conclusion that
as I hnd started tho thing I might as
well go through with it, so I determined
to tako a regular course. I entered tho
woman's class at tho University of
New York in October, 1891, and was
graduated in April at tho head of tho
class. In tho following October i entered tho junior class of the law department of tho university. Whilo iu that
class I won tho faculty prize of $100.
Tho next year, in tho senior class, I was
taken very ill with tho grip aud was
unablo to attend lectures for eight
weeks. However, at examination I stood
fourth in a class of 105 men aud 5 women, and I received my degree of LL. B.
"What do I intend to do now that
I'm admitted? Well, I'm going to do
the first thing thnt comes along. I'vo
studied real estate law a good deal, bnt
I'm not going to confine myself to that
by any means. I'vo the promise of a lectureship in a law school, but tho only
part of a promise I look nt is tho fulfillment, so that doesn't couut. My
mothor wouldn't liko mo to go into
criminal law. but I think I should liko
it very much. I think a woman could
have no better advocate or defender than
a woman.
"I'm a member of tho Socioty of
Friends, so of courso I'm strongly opposed to capital punishment. Instead of
tho death penalty I should liko to see
solitary confinement for life, with no
pardon. However, I'm neither judge
nor jury.
"I long to seo a jury of women. Of
courso I'm nn ardent woman suffragist
I've worked for tho cause for years aud
shall always work for it. I beliovo that
woman should voto and that sho should
be nctivo in politics."—New York Sun.
Society Women on Hlcyclen,
Women of fashion nro taking up bicycling in earnest, and tbo men who are
looking after monoy in this world are,
as usual, meeting thom half way, A
school has been started up town which
is patronized by women of unquestioned social standing and to which women who are not prominent socially find
it impossible to get tickets. It is in a
big hull, tho Instructors are quiet, and
respectt'ul, and the women nru uot linn-
j died familiarly, but by means of a belt
and a long strap and handle.
The handle is perhaps tbe most curious contrivance tho instructor uses. It
Is about :i feet long and is attached to
tho belt which the pupil straps around
her waist. The instructor, by means of
tho handle, which is nearly its long ns a
cane, and by a strap attached to the
handle of tho machine, can maintain
tho rider at an even balance and can
keep her moving around in a circle
without running rapidly himself. Very
low machines aro used by beginners,
and if tho pupil is unusually stout—
aud tho truth is a majority of tho society women who aro taking up wheeling nro fat beyond belief—two instructors nro detailed to teach tho preliminary rules. It does not mako nny difference how fat or awkward tho pupil may
be, it is impossible for her to fall with
a man ou cither side of her with the
now gear which has been invented for
tho purpose of steadying beginners.

but the younger and moro athletic worn-
on usually venturo ont in the park after
eight or ten lessons, though soveral
cases aro reported of women bearing
famous names who aro still afraid to
venture forth, though thoy have taken
soveral courses of instruction. Tho costumes aro old gowns of no particular

"During tlio commencement exorcises

Natural rhllonopliy and Iho 1'arasol.
A bright Washington woman has just
mado a discovery. For somo seasons sho
has been iu thu habit in summer of carrying a parasol to keep tho sunbeams
from her head, nnd sho hns been wondering of Into why it was that sho
seemed to bo just as warm when she
raised her shade as when sho forgot it
und allowed it to remain unopened.
The other day she was walking along
Pennsylvania avenue, and acting upon
tho impulse of her habit she raised hor
parasol as soon us she emerged from a
store. Theu sho noticed that ber breathing was difficult and that her face was
burning. Suddenly it dawned upon her
she hnd noticed this before, and she set
to work to reason out tho cause. For a
timo she pondered, growing warmer
with each step, until sho moved in the
shade of a treo and snapped her parasol
into its folded stato. In a moment her
face was bathed with fresh, cool air,
and she was immensely relieved. It
then flashed across her that she had been
unconsciously imprisoning all tho hot
air rising from tho sidewalks and asphalt pavements beneath the domelike
top of her shade, which, instead of acting ob a protector, as intended, was
real lyserv ing us n hood to surround her
faco with tho hottest atmosphere of tho
street. As loug as she held her parasol
up the uir hud no chance to circulate,
and this was tho moro unendurable because sho persisted in holding it quito
low. So she experimented, and as a result found thut sho wus really more
comfortablo when sho walked with her
parasol folded than when she opened it,
nrticlo except as a means of defense
against dogs aud cows and other wild
beasts.—Washington Star.

Tho Boston Transcript fitly81 "Ono of
tho most excited of tho male 'remonstrants' in New York is the lawyer,
Mr. Matthew Hale. Iu the June Forum
ho attributes to women 'an irrepressible
tendency to ex I feme exaggeration.' As
a glaring illustration of the peculiarly
feminine tendency be mentions thnt a
Now York woman suffragist is reported
ns saying, 'We have but ouo slave nowadays, and that slave is woman.' Ho
seems not to bo aware that tho New
York woman wits merely quoting a famous saying of a distinguished man—
Victor Hugo. The use uf Ibe word slavery as synoymous with deprivation of

The Monocle.

sent her. She said sho wns really afraid
sho was losing all idea of tho prevailing
styles and becoming hopelessly old fashioned," remarked tho careless woman,
with a smile in hor voice.
The extravagant woman was busy
putting sugar in her tea, so the methodical woman took up tho conversation,
"Then I always carry a number of
cards with my name and address on
them. It saves the shop peoplo lots of
trouble to have it plainly written out
just where to send the goods."
"Yes, but it didn't tho time yon gave
them one of Mrs. Jonesinith's cards in
mistake for your own nnd had all your
winter flannels sent to her," observed
the careless woman. "If I remember
rightly, you almost had pneumonia before the mistake could be set right."
"ThatwaBamerenccidout,"8aid the
methodical woman severely; "tbe principle is ull right."
"Of course, of course," said tho widow soothingly. "1 think I must be going now.   I've lots to do."
"And I, too," said the methodical
woman. "Kato does all her matching
by eye, and it takes a long time. Just
wait a minute, Knto, while I get out
my list. After it is once made I dismiss
it entirely from my mind, and I don't
know where I must go first. Why,
where con my list bo?"
"At home on your dressing table,
dear,"said the careless woman blandly.
"I saw it as we were starting out, but
you were so busy lecturing me about

country, the pusillanimous louder
of the Liberal pnrly received n
thorough and well-nmriieil oastiga-
tion from tbo tongue of Hon. Mr.
Foxier. The speech is pithy, it
doulb' so dourly und vigorously
With tbo grout question under do-
bate, while at the sumo time it is
ho pointed with wit und satire, tbat
it cun hardly fail of being lionised
with keen interest. We would liko
to publish tbo whole address, but
falling space for that) we give below a number of extracts, that will
no doubt lie duly appreciated :
Fault bus lieon found, und would

Which tbe remedial order went.
They say in so many words that it
went too fur. How fur did the re-
mediul tinier go ? Tbe reniediul
order went just so far, and only so
far, as tbo alleged and certified
grievance of Ibe minority went.
When i sity Ibe certilicd grievunee
of the minority) 1 mean (be grievunee which wus considered by tlie
Judicial Committee of the Privy
Council, und upon which und with
reference to which their decision
wus mude. I suy tbut it would

and tlie verdict of this country
hereafter will be that in these actions, and su fur as we have gone,

After the answer of the Legislature to the order was received, the
government hnd then but two
courses open to it. This Parliament, if that were considered ns a
refusal tn legislate) could proceed
at mice In remedy the grievance by
legislation, nr still another attempt
could be made nnd other negotiations entered into, and another
bpace of time left in which the
Manitoba Government and legislature could think over tire mutter,
and could muke uji its mind whether or not it still ought not to
Borne to a reasonable nnd satisfactory arrangement by virtue of its
own legislation; The government,
after thinking n,e matter very
carefully overi came to the conclusion that in a mutter of this moment it wns best that the local
government should be given every
possible opportunity to muke the
Mittleiiient within its own power
nnd of itself, before jurisdiction
bhould be taken by this parliament
hnd remedial legislation should be
Introduced Into this parliament,
Dues niv linn, friend object to Hint?
Now let me for ii moment contrast tlm policy and statement of
the government with the courso of
tny bun. friend uml the party thut
holds him ns it* louder uud the exponent of its policy. Fur live yeurs
this question bus'boon before the
bountrV) for these live yeurs my
lion, friend bus led that party nnd
been its exponent, und I defy anyone to find in Ibe record of' Han-
bard, the official record of this pnr-
liuincnt, or in the records of the
press, which chronicles the sayings
and doings of our public men, or in
tlie records of the Libera! party
I'onvention, over which he bus presided, nnd of which he has been
the lending spirit; I defy unyone
to point to one single sentiment
which will definitely show where
'•iv lion, friend (Mr. Laurier) ever
Has stood or to-day stands upon
Hint question. My hon. friend
naS made no announcement of his
Hicy "I all these yeurs.   My hon:
friend lias nut iiin.lt; even a valuable suggestion as to what ho thinks
should be done.
My hon. friend, the leader of Ihe
opposition for live years, is always
running for shelter nn this question. The first underbrush that he
got into wiih tbo oharnotor und
quality uf tlm Manitoba sohools,
and he kept under that lor two
years or mure, und I am not sure
but he Is under that yet.   He saysj
"Whnt Is tbe chuructcr nf those
sohools i Aro tbey Protestant
sohools?" " ll is a question of
fuel," lie Bays, Por five yeurs he
bus been asking tbut question, uml
[or five years he bus been taking
prooious guud cure not lu answer
il. is hu to-day misinformed ubout
them, or is he to-day still under
the shelter nf Ihnl cover, uml lighting from behind It 1 11» cither
knows or duos nut. know tbo question of facts. Nu mun nf average
Intelligence would take more Hum
live yeurs tu ennvinee himself as
to it, My lion, friend duos know
or dues lint know. If bu knows
why is be not using bis knowledge?
If be duos not know thorn arc only
threo reasons, One reason is tbnt
uf incapacity— and you should not
mention incitpiicity uud the lender
of the opposition in the sumo
breath. The other reason, utter
carelessness, und be is not going to
tnko tbe imputation of enrelessness
in this grout muttor. And the
third reuson, cowardice.
He bud another cover. When
be wus cbullengeil ngnin to give nn
opinion and tn muke a stntonient
of bis views, ho declared that he
could not do it because this question wns before the courts and that
he must not open bis mouth upon
it while it wits sub judiec. I beg
to inform my lion, friend that tbo
matter bus passed through the
courts, nnd bus been out of them
for the Inst your nearly, nnd yot
my hon friend bus not opened his
mouth. Hut, sir, he hud another
covet still. He entrenched himself
behind this idea which be put
forth ngnin und ngain : "Let the
government find its own policy ; it
is not my duty to find a policy for
tho government," Granted that it
is not) but I <lo hope that it i. bis
business to iillll a policy for bis
party. It is his duty to the country as the lender of bis party and
as a statesman to let his voice of
truth und information go forth to
the people of this country to lend
them in an agitalion which, he
says, is fraught with such danger,
to lead them in the right way. But
up to the present moment, sir, not
even a valuable suggestion, as I
have said, has conic from my hon.
To-day when lie (Mr. Laurier)
rose to his feet this house expected
something, and what did they heur
when it came down to the point of
where the hon. gentlemen came to
set forth his policy ? They listened
with attention and the three planks
of his policy were uttered. What
wns the first: "Two years ago I
snid Hint the government under the
constitution bud certain powers-
Hint was my policy." Will any
mun in the world make out the
meaning of a statement like that ?
Hut he thinks that is not quite sufficient to stand upon. A little misgiving takes hold of him, und he
resuscitates another two-year-old
statement. "Two years ago," he
says, "1 declared that this was u
question of fact, and not a question
of lnw. That is my policy." Again
olie is puzzled to know how such a
statement can lie tortured to mean
n definite policy. But, sir) my hon.
friend wants to have a trinity of
planks to stand upon. Feeling yet
a little insecure, he went a step
further and resuscitated another
old statement. He said, "Two
years ago I declared that if the
schools are Protestant, then th»re
is a grievance, and there ought to
be a remedy. That is my polibjf."
There you havt? it, gentlemen of
this house, the country has it.
Three isolated Mbts uttered two Or
three years ago, resuscitated to-day
in the face of a great crisis, when
the hon. gentleman says ConMder-
iition is shaking tti its foundation,
put together and applauded by his
followers as the policy ol tbe Liberal parly upon  ibis school ques-
[ tion. Then be went on to say) 1
speak not hastily, but when 1 have
| spoken 1 do nut take it back." The
linn, gentleman bus been su milch
in love with the first purt nf Hint
proposition of not speaking hastily
| thut he hns forgotten to speak, at
ull, und consequently bus nothing
I to take back.
j My bun. friend poses ns Ibe savior of bis country. He conies rilled up with the idea bf a crisis, nnd
declares that something must be
J dune, that Ibe country is being dis-
I integrated) dnd that Confederation
'is in danger. Against him stands
\ the pulley of the government. But
i this is not sufficient for him. The
situation) he cries, it' pressing him,
, thb crisis is great! Confederation is
In danger) nnd something must be
done ut once. What is that something be proposes to do ? This
time he is on hifther gronndi this
time ho hus u motion which is
going to bring light Into the dark-
uoss, hone Into t It in dospaiv, und
unity and stability out of this disintegration with 'which Confederation Is threatened. Ho asks this
houso solemnly but firmly to do-
elnre that they rogret the failure of
the government l(| doal with the
Manilubn school question, How?
In u milliner deiiinnileil by tho best
Interests of the oountry, and| furthermore, he is of opinion that the
ministerial declaration with regard
to this qtteslion is calculated to
promote u   dangerous   agitation
among the Canadian i pie. Why,
Mr. Spoakor,what aro the two lines
of the government's declaration ?
Give Manitoba six months In settle
tho  question   herself.     My   lion.
friend says that that Is dangerous?
Why he argued for it this afternoon. He Illumed us hecuusu we
had nut boon practicing conciliation all the time. But there is another branch to the question. The
Other is thut if nothing is done tn
settle this mutter satisfactorily,
legislation will bo introduced into
Ibis parliament, Ones my bun,
friend say that that is diingernus ?
[ask him Hint question now? In
this resolution my hon. friend declares thnt something Is dangerous,
I wnnt tn know what bo declares to
he dangerous. The delay of six
months fur Manitoba, or the reniediul legislation which, in (he event
of Manitoba doing nothing, is tn be
introduced hero when parliament
niecls again ? Which duos the
bun. gentleman say is dangerous ?
Or is it huth? My bun. friend did
nut deign tn explain il in bis
speech. My bun. friend) when
Im is asked the question
now, remains silent  in  bis  seat.
How ul «ilu(eily definite is the government's policy, The guvern-
ment'fl work fur fivo yours is all be-
fnro him, and yot, when ho comes
to regret that the government is
dealing with the .Manitoba question in n manner not demanded by
the best interests uf tbo country,
he bus no suggestion in his resolution or speech as to what Would be
the manner demanded by the best
interests of the country. Not the
least. 1 challenge my hon. friend
to put a motion before tbe bouse
laying down a definite, plain policy
in substitution for the policy of
this government, and ask this
house to support it. My hon.
friend says that something must
be done, and done at once. He is
in a position to do it. Jurisdiction is vested in this house. My
lion, friend can introduce his bill,
his measure, und submit the oase
to the house for its adoption, and
this house bus jurisdiction to
iiinkc law. If he and his party
have any plun, tbey cun put it into the rhape of legislation, and
Ibis parliament is in a position to
pass upon that legislation. Has
he done that ? Will he do it ?
Will he give even a suggestion of
it ? My hon. friend taunted us
with being cowardly. Well Mr.
Speaker, we have put our position
plainly and cleurly before this
bouse, nnd huve taken our stand
upon it. Has the hon. gentleman
done the same ?
I ask my hon. friend to abandon
this pusillanimous statesmanship
of putting governments out on motions of adjournment and colorless
catch motions, and to rise to the
spirit of the occasion and the importance of the (piestion by giving
this house and the country the
benefit of a statesmanlike opinion,
the benefit of his declaration of
what his policy would lie, what he
thinks would remedy the difficulty,
what be thinks would make pence,
und would make lasting nnd durable unity throughout the country.
To none of these appeals does he
respond. All his hopes, all the
hopes of his pnrtyi are based upon
dissension in the ranks of tile government opposed to hint; Mr.
Speaker, I appeal tb my hon: friend
to-night, I appeal to him and to
his lieutenants) I challungti them
ngnin tn get up in this house nnd
give their opinions with reference
to this question. I challenge them
tn do it but tlley will not do it. I
said to my lion, friend who sat by
my sido when the Icndbr of the opposition rose to-day! "He will
talk around everything, and commit himself to nothing." And it
fell out exactly that Way. The
lion, gentleman talked around
everything) lib committed hiiuself
to nnthing. lie ended up by declaring:—" 1 inn not going to bom-
init any chivalrous blunder." No,
tbe blunders my bun. friend cdme-
mits will never lie chivalrous. He
hsu made many, and will
make many more, but he does
not run tunny risks of mnking
that chivalrous blunder which consists in simply rising find Plating
plainly nnd frankly iliid honestly
ids position upon the great question of Ihe dny. (Loud nnd prolonged cheering.)

Leather Is Very Scarce.
Leather is so scanty and high of
price jtiHl now iu Franco thai the
minister of wur is greatly preplexcd
over the question of how to secure
the footwear for the groat number
uf men which that nation keeps
continually in readiness for its defence. Not only this, but a sufficient supply uf leather for saddles,
harness and other furnishings of
the oalvalry and artillery Islaoking,
When tlm government invited
bids recently for the equipment of
tbo troops with shoos and horse
furniture, tbe only ennlruclors who
dared to muke nu offer demanded
so high a figure tbut their propositions wero rejected, und those who
have contracts to till for those
articles, are seeking every means
possible to break thorn, fearing
that ruin will he Ihe result if thoy
ure compelled to curry out their
Hides, Hays the New Vurk World,
have doubled in price since Ihe bo-
gining of the present year. This
unusuul stale uf affairs in the
leather trade was thought at first
to be (he result of u corner in the
market) hut it hns since become
evident that the romarkablo soar-
city in that coiiiniodity conies
from u variely of simple ami nutu-
rul causes.
Threo of thoprlniolpal reasons
for the dearth of leather ure: The
recent wur between China nnd ,lu-
pun, the many revolutions and
blnnily conflict! in the South
American republics nnd the scarcity of fodder and pusturugii owing
lo the unfavorable weather last
year nnd the year before in the
countries of Iho world from which
the priniolpal supply of hides
As can readily be conceived, the
poverty of pasturage is a potent
factor in the decrease of the supply
of cuttle und of hides. The number of cuttle this yeur which will
furnish skins for the tanneries of
the world hns not reached anywhere neui' that nf former yeurs.
It is the war between China nnd
Japan which is more directly responsible for the dearth which now
prevailsi When wur wns declared,
Jnpnn placed large contracts iu
the United States fur the equipment of its infantry und cavalry
with footwear and other furnishings. To fill these promptly, the
contractors in Ibis country bought
up nertrly all tbe visible supply of
leather suitable for that purpose.
Slhce the war closed Japan has
sent new orders of equal importance to the merchants here for
fresh silpplies of shoes and military trappings, and the markets
have been swept bare to fill them.
The price of "green" hides has,
therefore, risen so high that the
tanners are buying as little as
they can, and a large percentage!
of tanneries throughout the World
are closed.
