It was theso conditions thnt prepared
tho pcoplo of Belgium to welcome tho In
ternational and tho radical propaganda
that went along with it. The Interna
tional, a body of workingmen through
out tho civilized world, organized, nn
thoy declared, to promote peace and
brotherhood and to bring alwut In one
way or another a democratic nodal sys
tem for mankind, grow out of n visit to
England by n band of French working
men nt tho timo of tho London exposi
tion utmost 00 years ago. This visit wnn
mndo nt tho suggestion of nomo manu
facturers in Franco, nnd out of it enmo
tho international conference of work
ingmon at London in 18(11. From that
came tho International, nnd its Hrst con
gress was hold nt Gonovn in 1800. Tho
body represented nlmost every trade of
European radicalism from state social
km to wild anarchism. Tho Belgian
workingmon joined tho organization by
thousands. At its strongest tho order
was estimated to havo somewhere be-
tweon 100.000 nnd 200.000 members in
Tho third congress was held nt Brus
sels in 1803. That year tho troops had
to be called out to suppress great strikes
among tho workingmen of Belgium, nnd
tho nrmy wna strengthened. Tho strikes
were ascribed to tho International,
though jierhnps unjustly. Two years
later camo tho riots thnt brought about
tho fall of tho Belgian ministry. The
International was felt almost all over
Europe and nowhere more than in Bel
gium. Every political assabsinntlon nnd
nonrly nil strikes wcro ascribed to tho
International. It was denounced as n
secret body, though as n matter of fact
it was not secret.
All these things working togethor have
finally brought about n now triumph for
tho peoplo, and tho socialists, who advo

hereafter have a voto, and tho plural vot-

cannot long keep tho peoplo in a minor

After mnrriago tho Wolpai maidens
cease to wear their hair in whorls. It is

Tho pottery, ornamental baskot work

nlTfilr liavo mi far been kept very quiet,
but thin t wild to bean outlinn of tin!
programme, which is of cour.so nubject
At least 100,000 Salvation Army hub
nml lassies will bo gathind beio from
uvuty ntato and territory in tho Union
nnd from thn provinces of Canada, and
a jubilation to last several days will be
held in honor of tho general'n coining
When ho disembarks from thoHteamer
ho will bo met by platoons of led jer
seyed noldiers of tho army, who will be
drawn up in military order on the dock
nml led by n powerful baud they will
lift their voices in n hymn of welcome
Then tho general will bo escorted be
tween linen of soldiers to a bright red
carriage drawn by eight horses capari
soned and blanketed with red, which will
bo in waiting to convey the head of the
army to itn headquarters. It in expected
that tho entire assembled forces will be
in lino on that occasion, and the parade
from tho dock to the army headquarters
will of itself bo one of tho most interest
ing nights of the season.
During tho jubilation of which till
parade will be a feature thero will be
many public meetings, tho chief of which
it in expected will bo held ill Madison
Square Garden. Uut of course tho Oar
den, which wnsnwamped by t ho con veil
tion of tho Society of Christian En
deavor will not begin to hold the crowds
nnd no tlvo other halls have already boon
selected for overflow meetings.
Ualliugton Booth will bo assisted in
tho work of making preparations for
this demonstration by his amiable ami
' capable wife, who ban quite recovered
from the illness from which she suffered
some montlin ago. When the parades
I take place, the city authorities, and nota
I bly the police, will of course lend their
1 assistance in making tho nITair n success
J by keeping order in tho streets. This
will lie in strong contrast to tho conduct
of tho authorities in other days, both in
America and England, when, as most
readers will remember, Salvationist)
were arrested by wholesale for parading
and niuging in tho streetn.
This chango in tho attitudo of tho au
thorities but roflects tho change in the
attitudo of tho church toward tho Salva
tion Army. It is freely conceded by tho
clergymen of the various denominations
that, while the army's methods are not
such as the churches could well adopt,
they are moro effective in reaching tho
lower strata of society than the old
methods and thnt they have resulted in
appreciable good, Tho earnestness and
tact of Mr. and Mrs. Ualllngtou Booth
contributed much to this chango of feel
ing in Now York nnd elsewhere.
The timidity of capital is not always
apparent in its workings ns is shown by
the success that seems to be attending
Mr. Steelo Mackayo's efforts to raise
moro money for his Chicago Spectata
Hum. It in stated that some hundreds
of thousands havo already been expended
in getting this enterprise on its feot and
that a like further sum will bo needed.
Most of tho first installment was raised
in Now York, and tho prospects aro said
to bo good that most of thosecond isalso
to bo forthcoming from New York
sources. I. D. Maiisiiall.

which for luxury go far ahead of any
