 East an6 Til est Kootenay  Have   Better Showings  for Mines  than   any  other Sections on the Continent  of. America.  FIRST  YUAR.-iYO.-  (Capital an& Brains  Can   Both   be   Employed   to, Advantage   in  the  Mining  Camps of East and  west   Kootenay.  NELSON,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA,  THURSDAY,  SEPTEMBER 7," ISM  PRICE  TEN   CENTS.  A   CHANGE   FOR    THE   BETTER  NEED  NOT   BE   LOOKED FOR  UNTIL THE  TARIFF QUESTION   IS   SETTLED.  And that Great Question Will Not be Settled  In the United States as Long- as the Democratic Party is in Power,  Until    confidence    is    restored    in    tin*  I'mfcd   States -m.ikI    that Will    not   In;  unfil tlic tttrilT (|tii!.sliiiii is settled -there  '   is not much likelihood (if seeing tiny grout  activity    in   mining   in   Kootenay.

Aside from  the Silver  King and -two or  three others, there are no mines in southern  Kootenay iu  Lhe  hands  of men able  (o   thoroughly  open'up   their   properties  and willing to work them after they are  opened   up.     The   price   of   silver   is   a  secondary   consideration.      If    it    is   demonetized    by   the   government   of    the  United   Slides���and   tha.t   appears   very  likely-���its   price will be  low,  lower thai)  at present: but not so low that, our mines  cannot he worked at a prolit. and capital  can always be found  to engage in a business at which a .prolit can be made.    English   capitalists   are   not, seeking investments iu Kootenay. and Canadian capitalists are''unwilling to do so because they  do  not understand mining.    The United  Stales alone will   furnish the capital, for  her people understand the mining industry: but until confidence is restored they  will   hesitate before making investments  either here or at home.    Tine Tmi'UXK is  of opinion, tha.t "good times" wood not be  looked   for  in   Kootenay until the Democratic party is ousted  from  oflice, for as  long as  that  party  controls the govei n-  mentof tin; republic to the south, .just so  long   will   there   be   uncertainty  ou   the  great question���The Tariff.  An Encouraging- Report.  Gilbert Finklo and W. II. Mackio have  returned from their .summer's prospecting  in the Lardo-Duncan country. They report'making n strike near the IIo.skins  group, which they say eclipses anything  yet found in that section. They secured  :thirteeju,claiuis'.in all, carrying si I ver, lead,  and copper, in greater or less quantities.  Assays have been had rouging from 1-15 to  181 ounces silver, and as high as 32 per  cent copper: 7:1 per cent lead has also been  obtained. The best looking claims are. the  Dominion, Banner, Km press, Cashier, and  .Mountain Chief, located in acon tact between slate and lime, the veins being  about four feet wide anil perpendicular,  trending northwest and southeast.'  The easiest and best way to reach the  ground, so the locators soy, is to ascend  the Duncan river to_ the, mouth of flail  creek; distant from Kootenay hike about',  fifty miles; thence by easy grade five  miles up Hall creek. They state that a  steamboat can be run on the Duncan to the  Big .Jam, which is ten miles below Kail  creek.  .These gentlemen hove given the Lardo-  ��� Duncan pretty thorough'.-scouring the  past season, and are of the opinion that it  is'destined to be a productive country in  silver, lead, and copper, when once opened  up. Many prospectors went in there early  last spring and did not wa.it for the snow-  to disappear until they came out, when  "they gave the country a black-eye. The  Duncan river bottoms, it is claimed, are  suitable for ranching purposes. Twelve  men are at work on the Hnskins group,  'and'the trail from Trout Lake tothe.se  claims is about finished."  turned to Nelson and reported finding a  .10-foot ledge carrying ore that looks as if  it might contain silver a.nd a. good percentage of copper.    Thegangtie is quart/.:  Of Surpassing Richness.  In these days of rumors of rich strikes  and soles at. big figures, news that is  authentic is recorded with hesitation by  our people. That the following is authentic cannot be doubted, for it is clipped  from the Northport News of August "fist:  "D. .J. Hughes of the O K was in town  on Friday ordering supplies for the mine.  While here Air. Hughes sent $IMO() worth  of gold to Spokane which he and his two  partners had taken from their mine in  one week. The. new strike in the () K is  about forty feet higher up the mountain  side than tlie main funnel, and the ledge  of free gold quart./, has been uncovered to  a. width of thirty feet. In most of this  quartz gold can be seen with the naked  eye.ond some of it isso rich that it pays the  owners very big to extract the gold from  the rock with a hand mortar. The owners not having tiny machinery ou the  ground, only the richest of the ore is  worked; but wo are informed tha t a stain p  mill will soon be erected, and then till the  ore can be worked at a large prolit. A  small creek, not more than a foot wide,  runs within two feet of the ledge, and in  the cloy and pieces of broken quart/.,  which are washed from the seams and  gathered in buckets, gold nuggets of considerable size are found. In one bucket  of this clay and broken rock, we had the  pleasure of seeing the owners extract $120  in gold. Messrs. Hughes, Cole, and Oiidin,  the lucky owners of the O K mine, are  very jubilant over their new strike, ond  we are sure they ore deserving of all they  find, as they have worked steady and hard  to make their mine one of fhe best in  Trail Creek district."  A New Find on Salmon River.  Last spring a syndicate of Nelson and  Winnipeg business men employed a prospector to range through the Salmon River  country.      Yesterday   fhe prospector  re-  the country, rock, slate and diorite. The  find is distant nine miles from Nelson and  about a mile from the Nelson iV: Fort  Sheppard railway.  Proven .Utterly Worthless.  The (fold Nugget and Golden Eagle  claims in flic Duncan Ki ver country have,  at last, been proven (o be utterly worthless. Parties who visited both state that  no vein exists where the (fold Nugget  eighteen claims were located on six feet of  snow: and although (lie Colden Kagle has  a vein'of barren quart/., it lies under a  glacier, where to explode a stick of dynamite would firing down thousands of tons  of ice.  A Low-Grade Mine Shut Down.  The Thunder Hill mine, near the upper  Columbia lake, in Fast Kootenay, has  been closed down, ostensibly for needed  changes in the machinery at the concentrator, but really because the product of  the mine will not pay at the present selling price of silver.

The First Gentleman in the .United'Kingdom.  Of the recent fracas in the British house  of: .commons .".a.   correspondent    writes:  "The speaker's ability, tact, and governing power were never more conspicuously  shown than upon this occasion.    Much of  his influence is due to his splendid voice.  Its clarion-like,  sonorous swell   calls   to  mind    Buhvor   Lytton's    description   of  O'Connoil's.    A man should  bo very certain of.being in the right who would  not  cower under it in reproof.    Yet it is often  attuned  to tones of the deepest feeling'.  The splendor of the position of speaker of  the British house of commons is. perhaps,  not generally realized.   The appointment,  nominally  for  the  duration  of  but one  parliament, generally extends" over several.    The present 'occupant of  the chair,  the   right   honorable   Arthur   Wollesley  Peel, the youngest son of the great statesman, is the eighth who has held the office  within the present century.   Chosen from  among the��� members, subject to the approval of tho crown, the speaker can be  removed .only upon  an   address   to   the  crown.    Besides a palatial  residence, occupying one wing of the house of parliament, and  large patronage, he receives a  salary of five thousand pounds a. year.  At  the end of his labors he is rewarded with  a peerage'anil a'pension of four thousand  pounds per annum for two lives.    He is a  member of the privy council ond the first  gentleman in the United Kingdom, talcing  rank after barons.    His duties,Under ordinary  circumstances, extend over only  portions of five days of the week for half  the year, although apparently! light, demand  for their proper  performance   the  exercise of trained abilities of the highest  order,  an  unfailing   memory,  keen  eyesight, and Ji quick ear.  "The profound respect voluntarily and  by custom accorded him rest, doubtless,  upon those, perhaps, illogical traits in  the British character which hove contributed to the continuity and steadiness  of British institutions. When, tit the  opening of proceedings, he makes his way  in state from his residence to the chamber,  through the corridors used by members  for passing to (hecoinmittee, library, and  refreshment rooms, it is against etiquette  for any one to be found therein. When  mi summer evenings he and his family  take the air upon the portion of the terrace which is outside his residence, there  is no more thought of approaching them  than there would bo if he wai'i', a (fraud  Lama. When in the chair he can be approached only upon strictly business matters. His levees, held twice a year and  open to all members, can be attended only  in court costume, sword by fhe side. If  shows, by the way. how completely  Quakerism has altered from its former  standards that many members of the  Society of Friends attend so attired and  girded. The Irish members and the increasing mi in her of IJadicals who will not  don court dress are consequent ly shut out  from personal intercourse with him."  THE   "WORLD'S   PAIR.  Notes of a Few of the More Interesting Exhibit sand Wonderful Sights.  The Bon Marohe, of Paris, makes a  comprehensive exhibit of textiles. In  one corner is.it bride's trousseau, the costliest ever marie. It includes a silk underskirt, valued at $2,300; several pieces of  underwear worth $2(30; asinglebed sheet,  embroidered in silk, worth $1000; a pillow  case, worth $100; and a whole cose of  robes de unit at $")()() a piece. The entire  outfit is worth $2;1,000.  Jn the watch exhibit are the time pieces  carried by king James the Pirst,'Oliver-  Cromwell, John Milton, sir Isaac Newton,  king Ceorge the Third, Robert Burns,  W illi:iin of Orange, queen Elizabeth, John  Calvin, John Bunyon, and lady Jane  Cfrey. John Milton's watch has a silver  case with raised points on the dial by  which the blind poet was enabled to toil  fhe time. Its date of moke is about IGOO.  The projectiles range in size from one  pound to eighteen hundred pounds. The  latter is fhe projectile of the big Krupp  gun. If is as big as a barrel and as till I as  the average man.  Nebraska shows a map of Platte coun.ty  made wifh wheat, rye. oats, and grass  seed.  Washington has a model farm thirty  feet square, with a farm house no larger  than a bird cage, a red barn three feet  high, and' flowing wells that spout into  troughs that hold about a. pint. Fields of  grain are represented by millet heads  stuck in the loose earth. A thrashing  machine eight inches high is operated by  farmers five inches tall. There are-reapers and mowers iu miniature, pastures,  cows, and county roads. There is always  a delighted throng around this display.  The foundation of the Washington state  building is made of huge logs, ten in number, each on which is one of hundred and  twenty-five feet long, three feet six inches  by three feet in breadth. They were cut  from trees throe .hundred and forty feet  in length.  What are supposed to be the first playing cards 'printed in'America are exhibited  in the Anthropological building. The  shoot is about cloven by seventeen inches,  and bears in tho bock o. pen-and-ink inscription giving tho date. 1753. Tho face  bears an impression from a wooden block  of twenty-four cards, each two by three  and one-half inches. Tiiey aro.eofored in  red, blue, and yellow.

The entire floor space of the Kentucky  building is undermined by a 0-foot tunnel, in the opening of which is scenery  accurately reproducing'' the mouth of "the  -Mammoth-Cave.  The Cuuarrl Steamship Company show  the development of modern ship-building  in a fleet of full-rigged models, from the  Britannic, tho pioneer ship, to the Campania, the largest in the world.  The Smithsonian Institute has a- natural  history exhibit, showing all the principal  species of each family of mammals in the  two Americas. There is also an exhibit  of the Connies of beasts ond birds which  ore fast being exterminated.  Mr. Burdett-Coutts exhibits a model of  his famous Brookfield stud. The inferiors  are fitted with electric lights, which enables one.to see the tiny galleries, loose  boxes, etc., which are within.  The mammoth gun in the Krupp building is one of the two largest ever made.  It was cast at the famous works at Essen,  Germany, and weighs 270.000 pounds.

The .Minnehaha   Driving Park   Association   have just unearthed  a fraud perpetrated on them at their last great trotting  derby   ou  the  Fourth of July.     As  the  "ringer" was Stanton Chief, a horse well-  known  lo   the  horsemen' of Canada', the  .story  of  the  fraud   will   be  of  interest.  Here, it is from tho Minneapolis Journal :  . "Frederick   Wostbrook,   of Brantford,  Ontario, owns the bay horse Major Eddy,  2..'M.{. and   nominated   him  in   the  $:J000  .'j-iuilo derby opened by the Minnehaha association   for  horses^ eligible  to  the 2..'i;j  class.     When   the racing season  opened  the Major did not  develop any of the expected   speed   that  his  owner  had   been  banking  upon,   ond   it  looked  as  if  his  money had  been   burned  up.    Mr.   West-  brook is n. man of thrifty habits, if seems,  while the drapery of  his  conscience is as  loose as a Mother Hubbard gown.     While  he was in something of a quandary as to  how he would pull any money out of the  3-mile event with a horse that couldn't go  to his record .his  eye fell   upon  fhe good  race horse 'Stanton Chief, whoso record of  2.:32-o had dropped to 2.29 A, when he won  the "2.30 class at   'Brantford   in  straight  heats and impressive style.    He kept his  eye on   the   grandson   of  old   "Hero   of  Chester."  "About the middle of Juno he  found  and  we  trust  Dr.   Peters  will  tell all he  knows about it.    We  further  hope that  he may be right about Emin Pasha being  yet alive,  and   that  Emin   inay   emerge  from his present obscurity and contribute  his part towards the  history of the Stanley expedition.    If would   bo an instructive story   without doubt,  and the whole  of it is absolutely necessary for the truth  of history in the telling of the real events  .'of that amazing trip.    Lotus have all the  light possible on this obscure subject, and  we trust that no one. will be backward iu  felling what he knows.    Says-Dr. Peters:  "Mr. Stanley is as  much underrated now  as he   was  formerly overrated.    He  is a  clever man.    Ho knows how to get money.  Some explorers traveled like tramps. .Mr.  Stanley had big  tents,   plenty to eat and  drink, and ho traveled .slowly. .Mr. Stanley ,was a. journalist.'  He knew how to  get himself into public notice.    Other explorers before him had done as much and  more.    They are scarcely known.!'  THE SILENT MAN HAD SAND.  LIKE CONDITONS,  LIKE EESULTS.

The range is sixteen miles.  Becoming- Alarmed.  President Cleveland is evidently becoming alarmed I'm' the fate of his pot measure, the repeal of the Sherman bill, and  is about to hurl another special message  at congress. Congress will be asked to  authori/.e the coinage of the silver bullion  iu the treasury, $r>2,000,000 worth. The  coinage of this would be sufficient to  make up the deficit that now threatens  the treasury. He thinks that such a message will do much to allay the fooling of  disappointment among the southern and  western Democrats. Mr. Cleveland has  struck a snag in flic senate, the silver men  in that body being good fighters, and  they give it out that they will "talk to  death" any measure that deinonoti/.es  silver. Anyway, the bill that passed the  house last week has boon shelved in the  senate, and that body is now discussing a  bill introduced by senator Voorhees,  which if passed would have to go to the  house, where, in turn, it might bo talked  to death, also. Verily, silver is having a  hard tussel, as is Mr. Cleveland.  with absolute accuracy and efl'cetafa distance of twelve miles. The gun has been  lired between forty and fifty times, and  each time it costs $12.10 to discharge if.  Tho 12-inch steel plates which were  perforated at a. distance of four miles are  exhibited with the gun in the Krupp  building.  The Xiearague canal is shown complete  in a plaster-of-paris model thirty feet  long, the country through which if passes  appearing in relief.  One of the many railway exhibits in the  Transportation building comes from England. A complete train, as vn\i ou the  Loudon iV Northwestern railway, is in  place.  The sword which Washington wore  when he surrendered his commission as  chief of the American forces, is exhibited.  It is tf-edgod, with a. steel blade, a silver  hilt, and a sheath made of some material  similar to parchment.  An iron firm in (formany exhibits an  iron tree made of various-si/.ed tubes. At  night the tree is a beautiful sight. Instead of loaves, the limbs are obla/.e with  yellow incandescent globes.  The Ferris Wheel is a. monster wheel  revolving between two towers, this wheel  being two hundred and sixty-four feet in  height, ond around it suspended between  the two crowns by great steel trunnion  pins, ore thirty-six passenger coaches, each  as large as the ordinary Pullman palace  oar. Each of those coaches has a. seating  capacity of sixty persons. Thou imagine  this wheel, wifli two thousand one hundred and sixty soids, slowly revolving.  Ontario.     There   were    some   last   ones  against him.    Guess, the Landmark gelding, went tiway with a- rush, and took the  first heat in 2.23:,!, anil took the second,  also, before ho got into trouble.    It was  not to the liking of the big son of General  Stanton, who was going easy and apparently not in thohiint.    Little Hell secured  fhe  third  heat and  a standard   record,  while the  fourth   went to Grimsby Girl.  If was then that Enoch Lowson, who wos  driving Stanton Chief, let go the stallion's  head, and ho went on and won the race,  trotting the  sixth   heat   in   2.27.(.     The  horse   was   owned   by Thomas   Eaid,   of  Jarvis. Ontario, who was quickly taken  into the confidence of Mr. 'Wostbrook, and  a plan was settled upon to substitute the  good gome race horse for tho counterfeit  one and carry off the big end of the money  that went on tho Derby.   The driver was  in financial straits.    He had been,in the  .business about a year, and it was* not a  difficult task  to secure his assistance in  carrying out the job.   The horse was accordingly given another race at Ay liner,'  but as   the  heats  were split up.and. in  pretty fast time, so that he was allowed  to be distanced the third'heat which was  trotted in 2.24, and wos kept in good shape  for a killing at Minneapolis.   The Canadian campaigners wont from Ayhuer to  Hamilton,  but   Stanton  Chief   was  conspicuous by his absence.    He.was shipped  to Minneapolis without his sulky or any  of the parphernalia that usually'accompanies a trotter on along campaign.   The  necessary .equipments"were borrowed, and  when the race was finished the horse was  bundled  to  the .cars,  and 'shipped   that  night.  "There, was only one hitch in the deal  that prevented the people being scooped  out of a big pile of money by these Canadian sharks.  "The money wont into the pool box on  Herman H., who was a hot .favorite, and  he proved, to have enough of speed to  beat the Canadian horse the three miles  in 7.&J, which was at the rote of 2.31 -H per  mile, too stilt' o clip even for the game and  fast Stanton Chief. Whether the failure  to win cost tho conspirators any great  amount of money in the pools is not yet  known, but certain it is that secretary  Jones paid over $7:10 on demand, and they  jumped the meeting by the first train.  "Wostbrook wos so'very anxious to got  out of town that he aroused secretary  Jones's suspicions. Xo protest has been  made against the horse in any quarter  and it did not seem possible, under the  circumstances, to keep the money back.  Mr. Jones accordingly paid over the $7">0,  but. determined-to investigate the matter  thoroughly and at once. He communion fed his suspicious to secretary Stoinor  and set about, tracing fhe identity of the  horse. Stanton Chief was traced lo Ke-  gina. X. W. T.. and then to fhe Pacific  coast, but without getting evidence of his  identify. Finally if was determined to  look flu; mutter up in Mranfford, and  there the real trail was struck. After  considerable correspondence Mr. Jones  succeeded in get ting a letter from a Jiraut-  ford man stating that Major . Eddy was  still there, and that he had not boon sent  to Minneapolis at all. Finally a confession was extracted from the driver and  the story was complete. Condign punishment will follow, and if flic extradition  laws will permit, Wostbrook will be  brought back to .Minneapolis and fried for  obtaining money under false  pretenses."  An Untold Story.  African explorer Peters is rather severe  upon African explorer Stanley. We suspect, too, that Mr. Peters is telling tho  truth. We suspect, further, that a great  deal more truth remains to be told concerning Mr. Stanley's explorations in  Africa, especially in relation to his alleged  relief expedition for fhe benefit of Emin  Pasha. The material may be lacking for  the full explanation of the wretched and  deplorable fate of major Marttolof in command of the rear column. We would that  the whole story might lie told. Hut as to  other portions of the doings of that expedition, a. good deal has leaked out. that  Mr. Stanley omitted iu his book. Much  more, doubtless, could be told. Wo have  long boon curious to gel the whole story.  An Incident of.Staging in  Northern California  for the First Time  in Print.  "I have traveled   through tho slates of  Washington   and   Oregon,  and   parts of  California. Idaho, and Montana for eighteen   years."  said   a southwestern   shoe-  drummer.     "Ten  years  of  that time   1  traveled by stoge. horseback, steamboat,  and canal, and  my life has boon  fuller of  adventure   than that  of   most  men.    It  has   boon   my. misfortune' to  have  been  twice hold-up by stage robbers.    In  both  instances my hands went up as quickly as  those of my fellow passengers.    I have no  patience with those people who tell what  they  would  do  if   they  met  robbers.    I  know what they would do.   They would  fall into line with the rest of the passengers, and   reserve their expressions of indignation until later in the day.    There is  no use of  talking,  tho stage robber has  killed, and he will  kill again, and a. man  never realizes how clear his life is until it  is in actual peril.  "One day in October, IS77, I was staging  it in northern California. There were six  of us in the coach. AVe wore talking about  stage robbers. Suddenly there was a halt,  and one of tho party said: 'Speak of the  devil and lie will appear.' Well, wo all  got out and stood in a line and gave up  our purses and watches. The driver had  thrown off  the  mail bag and   tho Wells  Fargo safe.  There   wore   two   robbers.  neither of them masked. . They wore not  polite like the knights of ..the. road in  romance, but swore continuously and  without artistic effect.. One of the bandits  could, not get oaths enough between  words.  "The job was done in about, five minutes, and the robbers told the driver to  go ahead. We did so for a .half a mile or  so, when one of the passengers, a silent  man whom 1 had taken for a commercial  man, said to the driver: 'Go slowly and  wait for me at the ford.' He then produced aW'inchester from the bottom of  tho coach and started back over the road  alone. 'Who is he?" we asked tho driver.  "Wells-Fargoman, I guess; never saw him  before, but I guess he knows his business.  If he comes back, he will-have got" them:  if he don't, they'll havegot him.' Twenty  minutes:later.we heard some rapid .firing.  Wo stopped at the ford.  "Xearly tin hour passed, and then the  man who had gone bock appeared-on the  trail. He walked slowly, as if in pain,  ond o bloody luind kerchief, was tied a bout  his head. 'Drive back and get the box,'  ��� he said to the driver. 'Did you get 'em ?'  asked the driver. 'Hoth of 'em,' he replied. We drove back. In the middle of  the road \vhore we had been held up both  men' lay dead. The Wolls-Fargo detective, calculating that they would stop to  rifle the mail -bag and the strong box. divide the plunder, and then separate, had  quietly walked back. One of them he  dropped with his Winchester before ho  was suspected : lhe other got in one shot  before lie fell, and that had struck the  brave man a .glancing, blow on the head.  Our property was all restored to its, We  helped bury the dead robbers by the rood  i>t  y-  Thaf uncertainty as  to  what  will   bo  done in fhe way of tariff legislation is one  of tho causes  to which   tho  business depression   in tho   United States can be attributed will seem   plain  if a. comparison  is made between tho conditions prevailing  in   the  United   States   and   iu    Canada.  Both countries  protect  home  industries  by  levying duties   on   foreign   manufactures: the duties levied being practically  fhe same in both countries. In both countries are political   parties clamoring for a  repeal  of these   duties.     In   Canada the  party clamoring isoutof office and powerless to moke the changes they clamor for.  In the United States the clamoring party  for the first time in many years is in full  control of tho government, and if it carries  out its ante-olecfion   pledges,   tho United  States will soon hove no protected industries;   her   manufacturers   will   be coin-  polled to compete in   their home markets  with foreign manufacturers.    Thus, while  the business men and industries of Canada  are suffering fiom the dullness that seems  to prevail in every country except France,  there is no closing down  of  factories, no  stoppage of work on raihwiys, no suspensions of  bonks,   no  wont   of confidence.  All because her people ore certain  that  the prevailing conditions tiro not likely to  bo suddenly changed   by  legislation.    On  the other hand, just  the  reverse is happening in   the   United  States.    Factories,  .are closing down,   no  now  railways are  being built,  banks  are  suspending,  and  everyone  is  lacking  in  confidence.    All  because her people are certain that legislation having for its objecta readjustment  of values is sure to bo passed by the party  now in power.    Were  tho   Liberal   party  in power today, the conditions  that prevail in the  United  States  would  be prevailing in  Canada,   notwithstanding  tho  solvency of our bonks ond tho conservatism of our business men.  side.    The brave oflieor refused to act  the purse  we hastily raised for I��11  ing: "The company  will  pay mo, genfli  men."'  Ought to be a Dictator.  The New York World is indignant at  speaker Crisp for placing Mr. Hland at  the head of the committee on coinage,  weights and measures. It says the appointment "shows a lack of respect for  fhe president, for the secretory of the  treasury, for Democratic unify." This  shows to what extent the eastern  Democrats insist on going in their subservience to the president. Tho logic  of it is. that to make up house' committees, even in small'degree, in o way lo  give prominence to a man who is not one  in belief with the president is to insult  (he president: and it follows that the  house is no longer an independent branch  of the government, hut in the language  of Andy Johnson, "a body hanging on  the verge of the government;" a mere  footstool for the president. This is a  very frank way of stating the eastern  Democratic idea of the Cleveland ascendancy: that In; is and of right ought to be  dictator in this land, and congress the  mere instrument through which he expresses his will.  Playing- for a Big- Advantage.  It ought to'be plain to every worker and  producer in the   United States  that  the  reason that tho Shy locks howl for but one  real money���scarce and dear gold���is that  it gives  them a  big advantage over tho  many.    It is for this  that  they pay millions to hired newspaper'liars and liars of  every degree, high or low, besides oil the  lying they do ���themselves:" it  is  for this  that they  frantically abuse  all who desire to increase the volume of real money  in circulation.    They can bring no argument to show why  they should be given  tho   great arlvantage   they demand  for  themselves over the -people .at largo in a  country supposed to   Ijo free and to give  all iii it an equal chance to prosper.    For  them to urge in their newspapers, in their  speaking, and in their tons of lying circulars   that  the  people-, tamely  submit  to'���  their'demands,  turn   over  to   them    the  profit of their toil and   themselves lead a  life of poverty, is a   piece of colossal impudence.    Yet this is just what they are  demanding, and president Cleveland and  many holding   the highest  places iu  the  government are supporting them in their  demands.   Foreigners Leaving the United States.  During tin-'mouth of August the departures of Austrinns ��� ond Italians from  Pueblo. Colorado, for their native lands  has almost reached the extent of a stampede. The movement began soon -after  the hanks closed their doors, in one of  which many of I hose foreigners had their  savings. Those who took out their money  desired to redeposit it hi tor. hut the banks  refused to open accounts with them. The  leading foreigners then held a meeting  and decided that there was a conspiracy  to defraud them out of their money, that  Americans would no longer employ thoni,  and the only thing for them to do was to  return home. This was quickly acted upon, and within the next low days the  steamship oil ices sold .'110 tickets for Naples  or Hamburg. Others will follow as quickly as they can dispose ()f their property  and settle up their affairs. They are not  paupers, but take with them an average  of $.S00a family.  Second  Queen    Victoria  on the List,  has now passed the  record of Henry III., .10 years and 20 days,  and has reigned longer than any English  sovereign save George III., who ruled 50  years and 07 days.

THE   WORLD'S    MONEY   SUPPLY.          o  CAPTURED   THE  A   Western  "GREEN   GOODS."  TIIL'H.SDAY  MORNING.  . .SKITKMHKH 7. ISll.'l  GOOD-BREEDING THROWN TO THE WINDS.  The first experience of women in a par-  linnientary body has ended badly, says  tho San l^rancisco Argonaut. Secretary  Carlisle of fhe United States treasury has  boon compelled to intimate gently but  lirinly to the lady nianagersof tho World's  Fair that, in the present condition of fhe  treasury, fhe government really docs not  see its way clear to continue paying them  six dollars a day for hold sessions in which  the amenities of polite life and the rules  of Lindley .Murray were: equally violated.  Forsomo time the meetings of fhe board  have HI led observers with amazement.  The ladies hove scolded each other and  shrieked at each other: their proceedings  have been marked by envy, hatred, malice,  and all uiioharitableness; there has been  a total lack of the delicate courtesy to be  expected in a. feminine body; they have  really been an assemblage of viragoes.  The board of lady managers found themselves in unacciistoniefl clover.    They had  their passages   paid    to   Chicago.     They  were dead-headed all  over the fair, even  to  the Midway   I'laisance, and  had a U>w  dead-head tickets for their friends.   They  had free entrance to the side-shows. They  rode free on launches and gondolas. They  avoi'c conspicuous badges,  which marked  their superiority to fheordinary feminine:  and, finally, thoy drew six dollars a day.  which left, a margin after their board was  paid.''     Yet,   notwithstanding  till   these  good things, they have raved and scolded  so continuously  that JMrs. Potter Calmer  hits had a hard job to keep them in order,  and every one is glad thoy have adjourned  sine die.  It is a. curious consummation. The  ladies who composed, the board of managers must, as a rule, have belonged to  that -class of society in which polite.behavior is expected as a matter of course:  many of them, like Mrs. Potter 'Palmer  and Airs. Hooker, ore society leaders. Hut  when thoy got together as a, parliamentary body, they seem to have'-thrown  good-breeding to the winds and behaved  as if they constituted a ward covention.  They intrigued, and wire-pulled, and  log-rolled over the little patronage they  had at their disposal like ward politicians.  In the face of this'-experience, what be- J  comes of the argument that the grant of  the suffrage to women'would refine ond  soften our political contests ?  There ore cynics  who argue that  the  polite behavior  by which   the sex is distinguished is a disguise'assumed for the  deception of men; that  tiio natural  instinct of  women   is  to  oantanker.  while  men are, much  more  good-tempered and  forbearing.    This  notion is corroborated  (tho cynics maintain)  by  tho  richness of  the  language  in   words  to designate ill-  tempered women, in  comparison with its  poverty in. expletives to describe tho corresponding  class   of men; in  the ancient  days, when  the Anglo-Saxon tongue was  formed, a pressing need  was felt for such  Avords as scold, shrew,   termagant, vixen,  spitfire and   virago,   while,   oven   at  the  present day. it is difficult to discover exact  correlative  syiioiioynis  applicable to the  male   sex.     Self-proservation.  as   I'lack-  sl.one remarks, compelled our ancestors to  invent -the    ducking-stool     for   scolding  women, whereas it   was  never necessary  to devise a similar   punishment for men. I  Cynics who thus reason account for the  behavior of the ladies' hoard of managers  atthe World's Fair ou fhe theory tha-t,  when ladies are removed beyond the chastening influence of men, they give the  rein to their normal instincts and berate  each other with their natural ferocity.  Jhif these cynical theories are hardly  borne out by natural observation. Those  happy males who have been permitted to  penetrate the modern Kloiisinia known as  women's dubs, do not report that the atmosphere was lurid with vituperation;  they merely noticed that all the ladies  wanted to talk at once. If must be the  acquisition of po.rlimentary rights which  sfi niulcifed the lady's board of the World's  .Fair to such unseemly contention.  Jiut the more closely the sex is studied,  tho more clearly if is demonstrated that  women appear to very much better advantage when  they ore associated with  Man's Pluck Lands Hini in a  Police Station.  Tho wave of linancial depression swept  over Crete. Nebraska, several weeks ago.  and caused a scarcity of cut rency. .1. A.  Dorse fhe city marshal of (he town, who-  owns ;i big store where everything that  country-folk usually desire is sold, was  affected by the dearth of cash, lie had  received a fypo-wriffeii letter from a New  Vork lii-ni of green goods merchant, and  ho decided to come ou and do tip the  metropolitan fakirs.. He 'arrived one  morning and put up at the Cosmopolitan  'hotel,- paying'for his room in advance,  lie "flew light." which, in tho vernacular  of tho'hotel clerk, means that ho had no  baggage.  In the afternoon ho mot two men, one  loll and muscular looking and thcollior  small and wiry, in a saloon at ���"! Iioosevolt  street, just oil' Park row. The muscular  man was the senior partner of fhe green  goods firm. He carried a japanned box  about 12 inches long, !) wide, and (idee]).  The city marshal of Crete was permitted to look into the box. lie saw  three packages of what appeared to be  .$.") a ml $ I bills. There wore two .$:"> bills  and one #1 visible. The marshal didn't  know it. but all beneath the visible $11  wore slips of green paper just tho si/.o of  the bills.  The ;\'ew York merchants seemed Lo bo  convinced that they had a sucker in Low,  and the country buyer from Crete on his  part felt pretty sure that ho was coining  out ahead of fhe game. The man from  Crete is big and plucky, and he had ti big  ���11 Smith 6c Wesson' in his hip pocket.  The New Vork merchants said that  there was $:">()(!() in "good money" in the  .japanned' box and that tlie"nia.rsha1'bf  Crete could have it for $1000. Tho marshal said ho had $1000 on deposit in the  Hanover National Hani-:, and proposed  that they-go and got it.  Me. produced a hook of the bank, which,  he says, he obtained from a clerk in tho  institution in the morning. The entry on  the bank book was in his own unconiinoi-  cial hand,'and ran thus:  .July 27. tlep., $1000.  When Dorse showed this tho big green  goods merchant laughed scornfully. Thoy  were then'at Water and J'ino streets.  The marshal grabbed the handle > of the  box and the big fellow muttered :  "Dot go that, damn you, or I'll cut your  fingers off."  The'marshal didn't lot go until the big  mail struck at him. Then he shouted  "Police!" Policemen Fa ton and Wilson  ran up. The green goods men dashed  down Pine street. The marshal pursued  and grabbed the box again, ond the big  fellow lot go. The marshal canto bock to  the cops looking jubilant.    He said :  "We will have- wine on this! Jiy-guin.  we've got 'em this time."  "Yes," said   Foton. derisively,  "you've  got "em."  Their the man from Crete explained how-  he hod done it. Faton took charge of the  box, and accompanied by the expectant  marshal, went to the Old Slip station.  The marshal was permitted to come behind the desk 'and look ou while sergeant  Ilognn forced the lock of the box. Tho  marshal couldn't keep still, lie danced  around the sergeant, exclaiming:  "It's in there!   ''Five thousand 'dollars!  we've got'em this time, sure."  The sergeant  thought, he  would  jolly  the    fly    man    from    Crete   and    asked:  "Whore  are  voit  coming   iu.   supposing  there are $.")()()() in hero?"

accidental  cireiinisliince  led   liini   to   tell
the story.    We   wore sitting co/.ily over
my study lire, when my catctunestalking
iu   with   .sanguinary   elation,   holding a
mouse in her mouth.    .She stood growling
beside my chair till   I   tipphuidi.-il her and
patted her  for her   prowess.     Then   sJie
withdrew to the middle of the room, and
began to play with her half-da/.cd victim,
till I got up and gently put her outside to
conclude the  exhibition.    On niy   return
my uncle surprised me by remarking that
lie could not look without a shudder upon
a cat  tormenting a  mouse.   As   I knew
he had looked  quite .calmly, on occasion,
into the  cannon's  mouth,   I tisked for an
explanation.'   '; Do  you  see  this?" asked
the colonel,   touching the sear with  his
lean, brown linger.    1 nodded attentively,
whereupon he began his story:   "In India
once I went out on  a   hot,  dusty  plain
near the Gauges, with  my  rille and one
liiitive sei'N'iint, to see what I could shoot.
It  was a   dismal place.    Here and   there
were clumps of  tall  grass,   and bam boos,
with now and then a tamarisk tree.   Parrots      .screamed      in     the      trees     and
the .-.startled      caw     of     some     Indian
crows      made      me      pause     and     look
around to .see what had disturbed  them.
The crows almost at .('nice settled down
ag-tiin into silence, and as I saw no sign of
danger'J went on carelessly.    I was alone,
for I had sent back my servant to find my
niatch-box. which  Iliad  left at the  place
of my last halt; but I  had  no apprehension, for I was near the post, ami the district was one from which, as was supposed,
the   tigers  had'  been   cleared   out   some
years before.    .Inst as I was musing upon
this fact, with a tinge of regret because 1
had come too late to  have a  hand in the
clearance, I was crushed to the ground by
a huge mass which seemed  to have been
hurled  upon  me from behind.    My head
felt as if it had  been dashed wiLh  icy or
scalding    water,    and    then    everything
turned   black.    If   I   was stunned  by the
shock, it was only for an instant.    When
I   opened  my eyes  I  was lying with iny
face in  the sand.    iN'ot knowing where 1
was or what had  happened. I started to
rise, when  instantly a  huge paw turned
me over on my back, and  I stiw the great
yellow-green    eyes    of   a   tiger   looking
down   upon   me   through    their   narrow
black slits.   I did not feel horror-stricken:
iu fact, so   ffir as   I   can  remember. 1 felt
only a dim sense of resignation to the inevitable.    1 also remember tha'i I noticed
with   curious  interest   that   the  animal
looked rather gratified  than ferocious.    I
don't know how long I lay there, stupidly.
but presently I intide a movement to sit
up, and then I saw that I still held my
rifle in my hand. While I was looking ,-it
the weapon, with a vague harassing sense
that there was something I ought to do
with it, the tiger picked me up by the left
shoulder and made off with me into the
.jungle: a.nd still I clung to my rifle,
though I had forgotten what i\sv, ("should
put it to. The grip of the tiger's teeth
upon my shoulder 1 felt but numbly: and
yet, .'is I found afterward, it was'so far
from gentle as to have shattered Ihe
bone. Having carried me perhaps half a
mile, the brute dropped me, and raising
Jier head, uttered a peculiar soft cry. Two
cubs appeared at once in answer to
the summons, and bounded up to meet
her. At the first glimpse of me, tliey
sheered ofNii alarm, and their dam hail
to coax them for some minutes, rolling me
over softly   with her. jwiw,  or picking me
up and laying me down iu front of: tJiein,
before she could convince them that I was
harmless. ■ At last the youngsters suffered
themselves to be persuaded. They threw
themselves upon ir.e with eager though
not very dangerous ferocity, and began
to maul and worry me. Their claws and
teeth seemed to awaken me for the first
time to a sense of .pain. I threw off the
snarling little'■ animals roughly, and
started to crawl away. In vain the cubs
tried to hold nie. The mother '.'lay watching the game with satisfaction. Instinctively I crept toward a tree, and little by
the desire for escape began to stir in my
da/.ed brain. When I was within a. foot or
two of the tree the tiger made a great
.SKIZKI) .MK  IN  11101? .IAWS,
and  carried' me back   to  the spot  Prom
whence I  had started.    "AVhy." thought
I to myself, "this is just exactly the way
a eat plays with a  mouse!"    At the same
moment   a. cloud  seemed   to  roll   oil' iny
brain.    No. words of  mine,   my boy, can
describe   the measureless -and  sickening
horror of that moment, when realisation
was suddenly  flashed   upon  me.    At the
shock my rifle slipped   from my relaxing
fingers: but I   recovered   it desperately,,
with a sensation as  if I  had been falling
over a   precipice.     I   knew  now  what .1
wanted-to do with it.    The suddenness of
iny gesture,  however,  appeared  to warn
the tiger that I had   yet a little too much
life in me.   She grumbled and shook me
roughly.  I too'-c the hint, you may be sure,
and    resumed    my    former   attitude   of
stupidity;   but   my   faculties   were  now
alert enough, and-at-the crudest tension.
Again .the cubs began   mauling me.    I repelled them gently, at the same time looking to my rille.    I   saw  that there  was a
cartridge ready to be  projected into the
'chamber.-   1 remembered   that the magazine was not  niore  than   half empty.    I
started once more, to  crawl   away,   with
the cubs snarling over  me and trying to
hold me: and it was at this point that I
realized that my leftshoulder was broken.
Having crawled four  or live feet I let the
cubs turn me about, whereupon I crawled
back toward the old tiger, who lay blinking  and   actually   purring.    It  was plain,
that she had made a   good meal not long
before, and was. therefore, in no hurry-to
despatch inc.    Within about three feet of
the beast's striped  foreshoitlder 1 stopped'
and fell over tni my side, as if all but exhausted.    My rifle 'barrel rested on a little
tussock.    The  beast   moved   her  head to
watch me,   but  evidently considered me
for her eyes rested as much upon her.cubs
as upon me. The creatures were tearing
at my legs, but in the supreme moment I
never thought of them. I had now thoroughly regained my self-control. Laboriously, very deliberately. I got my sight,
and covered a spot right behind the old
tigress's foreshoitlder, low down. I'Yoin
the position I was in, I knew this would
carry the bullet diagonally upward
through the heart. I should have preferred to put a bullet in the brain, but in
my disabled condition and awkward posture I could not safely try it. Just its I
was ready one of the cubs got in the way,
and my heart sank. The old tigel' gave
the cub a playful cuff which seufc.it rolling to one side. The next instant I pulled
the trigger- and my heart stood still. My
aim had not wavered a hair's breadth.
Thu snap of the rifle was mingled with a
lierce yell from the tiger, and the long-
barred body straightened itself up into
the air, and fell over almost on top of inc.
The cubs sheered off in great consternation. I sat up, and drew a long breath of
thankful relief. The tiger lay beside me,
stone dead. I was loo weak to walk at
once, so I leaned against the body of my
vai)t|iiis|ied foe and rested. My shoulder
was by this time setting up an anguish
that made me think little of my other
injuries. Nevertheless the scene about
mo took on a glow of exipiisiie color. So
great was the reaction that the very sunlight seemed transfigured. I know I fairly
smiled as I rapped tho cubs on the mouth
with my rifle-barrel. I I'd: no inclination
to shoot the youngsters, but I would have
no more of their over-ardent attentions.
The animals soon  realized  this, and   lay
down iu the sand   beyond  m'y reach, evidently waiting for their mother to reduce
me  to   proper submission.    I   must have
lain  there  half an   hour, and  my elation
svas rapidly subsiding before the agony
iu   my  shoulder,  when at   last  my  man.
Ilunjeet.  appeared,   tracking   the  tiger's
traces with stealthy caution.    He had not
waited   (o go for help, but had  followed
up the beast   without delay,   vowing   to
save me or avenge me ere he slept.    His
delight was so sincere, and his courage in
tracking the tiger alone  was so unquestionable, that I doubled his wages on the
spot.    The cubs, on his approach, had run
off into covert, so we set out at once for
the post.    When   I  got there I   was in a
raging  fever,   which,   with  my   wounds,
kept me laid up for three months.   On my
recoveiy I found  that (funjeet had gone
the next day and captured  the two cubs,
which   he   had   sent  down   the  river  to
Benares: while the skin  of the old tiger
was spread   luxuriously  on   my   lounge.
"So you will  not 'wonder," 'concluded  the
colonel, "that the sigh of a cat playing
with a  mouse has become somewhat distasteful  to mo since that  experience.    I
have acquired so keen a sympathy for the
a-, i'

Various amusing stories of his great affability were related by his contemporaries. ' Even among Parisians, famous for

but a poor imitation of good manners. At

To Condemn the Church   is to Condemn  Man
"Man is a religious animal," said the sage
of old, and none spoke more truly. The
most searching investigation has failed to
make known the existence upon the face
of the globe of a people, however savage
or barbaric, in whose thoughts and .actions are not to be discovered the seeds,
which, after countless centuries had run
their course', blossomed.' to the full in
.lestis of Nazareth. The evolution of religion—for the world is nearer d'od with
the rolling ycars--l.olls of man's steady
progress, 'of the purification of his
thoughts, of (he uplifting of his soul.
To condom the Church, then, is 'to. condemn man himself, to condemn society,
which is Hie expression of his aims and
aspirations and the impi ovuinent of which
is the best" measure of his usefulness in
the world. In ruder ages, the Church
was rude: when man was cruel and rapacious, his creature the Church resembled
its maker: when he fell, it fell, and when
he rose it rose with him. The Church litis
never been worse than the worst of the
men amongst whom it has existed, nor is
it ever better than the best.
J'Yirall the crimes that may be laid al
its door, for till the injustice it has at
times condoned, for the corruption and
profligacy it litis winked a tor overlooked,
for all its errors it has been guilty of, the
Church, since the dawn of human history,
has been perhaps the greatest power for
good in the world, one 'which on the whole
has steadily tended to advance and upbuild the race. If the Church has had its
Sniithfields and its St. Bartholomews, it
cannot lie denied credit for the noble services performed by it in the Dark Ages
when, spurred ou by the Church militant,
the people of Kttrope went forth to battle
against the Saracen and saved the home of
liberty and progress from the eclipse of
barbarism that threatened to obscure it
for ever.
Do we remember "'Bloody Mary" and
the Spanish Inquisition? Let us never
forget how those brtivo old prelates stood
shoulder to shoulder with the barons of
Fiigland at glorious .Hunnyinede, forcing
a reluctant king to sign the charter of her
If the Catholic Church burned Bruno
and tortured Galileo, it was the light of
faith—the hope to bring unknown nations
to the fold of Christ—that guided the
(hiring Genoese over the storm-tost western seas to make known to men another
hemisphere. It is the same light that led
the Jesuit fathers to leave scarce a corner
of earth unvisited, and with untiring zeal
to study the history and languages of the
peoples-with whom they have dwelt, .and
to leave behind those monuments which
the scientific world can never be too
grateful for. ' If to the governments
and to the people of the Old World the
"Society of .Jesus" has been thosorvautof
darkness    and    a    subverter   of   human
abolition of society. A few may imagine
that they have emancipated themselves
from all religion and act iu accordance
with that state of mind, just as another
few succeed in persuading themselves that
society is no longer of use to them, and
in reducing themselves to a condition of
life resembling that of our rude ancesLors
of the prime.
Pensioners Must Reside in the United States.
'    Six or eight Americans  iu   Vancouver
have lost  their  pensions  under  the new
interpretation of the pension act.    This is
the case throughout the whole of Canada ;
in  some portions different rulings   have
been given, but the chief end seems to Info deprive all   Ibiiti'd   States   pensioners
living   in   Canada    from    receiving   any
further remuneration as a reward for services rendered during  lhe great struggle
between the North  and South.    The ruling which applies to   Vancouver particularly   appears   to   follow   along   the   line
that no person excepting those who draw
a- pension for  wounds can   receive a pension and live in Canada.    The notification
received by   Yancouverites is  somewhat
indefinite.       livery    quarter    pensioners

season is to be   made   out   for  the  next
quarter, and which  amount is only payable three months after  the (litto tho last
one was paid. All went well until the last
check was received   on  .June  1st: at that
time the check was all right but was unaccompanied by a blank certificate or receipt.    Since then any word received hens
is painfully  certain not to hold out any

woefully as to the reason why.    Down at
Windsor.  Ontario, between  100 and  500.
mostly colored   veterans,   have been similarly treated.    The  reason  given them is
that   pensioners   are .now .compelled   to
prove date a nd place of their birth.    This
will mean a great injury to the majority
of veterans there, who. being colored, and
some of thorn former skives, are unable to

Special Attention to Miners^
At Corner Baker and Ward Streets,
Just here the urbane librarian happened,
to look up and saw a group of persons
Avaiting to ask for books. Bowing to
them graciously,'lie finished his speech
thus: "'as to anyone else who does us the
honor to ask for it."
When he was promoted.to the grade of
commander of the Legion of Honor a mischievous fourteen-yejir old boy went to
congratulate him. As he was on his way
to the office of Al. Ilaso someone asked
him where he was going. The boy told
him and added, laughing: " 1. know just.
what he will say iu reply."
'Then ho recited Al. Ilase's probable response.' Persons who followed him into
the office found his guess to he correct,
word for word.    What Al. Hase said was:
".My dear young friend,: it is not 1 but
you who merit this distinction.
Slight Difference.
A gentleman riding through one of the
pine wastes so common in middle G'eorgia
s.ime 'years ago .overtook a young-man
whose sack of corn under him on the farm
horse he rode gave evidence that he was
bound for the grist-mill.
Some conversation between the two developed the tact that the young man was
a son of the author of a popular almanac.
The gentleman" asked the young man
jocosely, "And do you ever make calculations upon fhe weather, like those; for
which your father is so celebrated?"
"Oh. yos," he replied, readily."
"And how do your calculations .agree
with your father's?" inquired the gentleman.
"Very well indeed." replied the young
man. "We art! never more than one day
apart in our reckoning."
"Why, that is wonderful, certainly!"
exclaimed the gentleman. "Only one
day's difference?"
"Yes," said he. with a twinkle in his
eye: "He etui always teli tho day before
when it is going to rain, .and I can always
tell the day afterward !"
The G-reat Comstock Almost Deserted.
A business man of Virginia, Nevada,
says matters have so shaped themselves
on the Comstock that not a whistle will
be heard on the lode by the Kith of next
month. There are only about 200 men
employed, and these few cannot possibly
tide over the hundreds of unemployed.
He said that he had been in business in
Virginia for twenty years, and that he
will be compelled to close down for the
reason that his business has been nothing
but credit for some time back a nd he mtisl
suspend in order to save himself. Others

liberties, to science, in the New World, its
members have contributed material of inestimable worth.
The priesthood of this church may. have
boon justly charged  with  profligacy and
moral  misconduct-,   but-we cannot blink
the. fact that it has'always stood firm for
the sueredness   of   the marriage  tie.    It
was   this church   that   we saw, a short
k time ago, refusing to condone the offence
'of ii great political   leader,■-who sought
with the cloak of patriotism  to cover up
his lewdness and by  putting forward his
services to his native land to excuse his
crime   against   society -anil   civilization.
Had it'not been  for  the Church, Parnell
.might have won, and-once more would it
.have been   recorded  that public services
were held to atone for private crimes.
If Luther and Alelancthon thought
Copernicus an "arrogant fool" 'and .a
"mischief maker," and' even failed to discountenance the burning of heretics, we
may not hide the fact that by them wort-
laid the foundations of modern European
liberty. That against which they protested has been shorn of its temporal
] tower.
If stern find relentless John'Calvin had
Sorvotus put to death, if his followers
'have sought to make religion a thing of
gloom and fear, the facts remain that the
reformer ..made a new (iencya and that
the strict morality of his church is still a
world-wide influence for good •-•and a
needed one. If the old Puritans of New
Kngland burned witches. persecuted
Quakers, lasted iu and out of season, eleven refused to kiss their wives on the
Lord's day. we cannot help admiring their
nobility of character, their tenacity of
purpose, for wo know that it was .Massachusetts, the home of Cotton Alather ami
.Miles Standish. that created the American republic, and we feel instinctively
that from the same good Puritan stock is
coining that new strength, which ere
long will 'sweep away trusts and monopolies, with their attendant corruption
and degraded political conceptions. Their
spirit lives today and animates the great
commonwealth whose foundations they
humbly laid in fhe name of icligion.
lias the Church gone to war unjustly,
prayed for the success of the unworthy,
or taken sides wifh the oppressor? Her
atonement is to be found in the patient
nuns who in plague-stricken cities, in hospitals and la/.ar house's, and upon the
field of battle itself, have cared for the
wounded and the dying, in tho thousands
of noble servants of their .Master, whose
succor and alms-giving have lightened the
burdens of life to unfold multitudes and
whose kindly words have wreathed with
a smile the lips of those whom death had
already in his grasp. Such deeds outweigh the illspoken .deeds of a haughty
prelate, the jingoism of a misguided
bishop. Hard indeed must his heart be.
who will not, let. the mantle of the
Church's charity cover these her sins.
They are in error who magnify flic mistakes the Church has made, they are
wrong who dwell upon the disagreements
between the sects. The good that she has
done for mankind, the points wherein all
denominations agree, those are this really
useful topics for consideration. Churches,
creeds, beliefs, men will have while the
world stends. The .abolition of the
Church is as chimerical  a  project as the
Interesting- Facts Respecting Slam's Capital.
A globe-trotter who has resided in Siam
supplies sonic interesting facts respecting
Bangkok. The principal thoroughfare is
"Oriental avenue." There is neither
theatre, concert, nor any place of amusement in the capital: only at the clubs
and legations can Ktiropeans meet. English manners and customs dominate: the
sole hJuropean drink is whisky and soda:
breakfast at ten, tiffin at two, supper at
nine. Clothing, as far tis possible, approach the state of luifure's ideal. The
cab regulations tire curious; a vehicle
with two fast - trotting little ponies,
whether .hired- for a few minutes or
several hours, is $2: the driver, if he runs
over any pedestrian, incurs no penalty,
as the inhabitants are bound to keep out
of the way. The military hand plays
every afternoon; the national anthem of
Siam is "Cod Save the Queen."

Passed its Third Reading.  The Home Utile Hill has passed its third  reading.    The first hope of the Unionists  iu opposing fhe Home  Utile measure was  in   the people.    They were quite certain  that a   majority  of   the  electors   would  never consent   to   it.     When   this   failed  they   still   hoped    that   divisions   would  arise that would turn  the home nilo m;i-  jority   in   parliament   into  a   minority.  Failing   in    this,    their    hope    naturaliy  turned to the house of lords.    The house  of lords seemed a tower of strength be fort!  it was face to face with the question, but  somehow   or other   the  hopes   that  centered iu   it appear   to wither as  the test  approaches, Jor we find  the opponents of  the measure proposing to themselves a  still more desperate vciu^a, namely, the  There Will be a Sale.
