Trimdad, Cole, Sept. 26- The mem
bers of the Trinidad fire department are
having a big demonstration, which will
laEt until midnight, when the apparatus
will be turned over to the city and the
various companies disbanded. This
leaves the city without any protection
against Are. The action of the tire boys
is due to the fact that the city council
refused to compensate them for time
put in at the fires. Headed by the
bund playing a dirge, the four com
pazine marched through the principal
streets, the boee carte draped in mourn
ing. At the head of the prosession was
a transparency representing a coffin.
The citizens are in sympathy with the
members of the department, who have
been very shabbily treated. The only
recourse for the city now is to oigani.e
a paid department.

company of Siou City was filed in the

A NEW CLASS OF CIT12EN
EoflUh, Reottk, and Tanadlaa CettlaJ
The movement anion; Enilbhmen,
Scotchmen, and Canadians throujruout tie
xmnury to become ciuzcni is one of great
jnporiance. They constitute the only
jalionalities or nationality, for they are
practically one who show a high order of
auelligence. and who yet have to a large
: txteut retrained irom luucumying uiem
I wives fully with their adopted country,
t Their number is rnvuer than m iuv real
ize. It is iiinuted tbut there are in
Massachusetts more than L'i.OOU unnatural
ized Kneiblunen and Scotchmen. In the
City of New Haven alone there arc said to
be 3,St'J. The chief center of interest in
:hia qutstlon just now is 1 hirnrro, where
aine Enirlish societies are co-operating to
ward tais end, and expert the .Scotch,
Welsh, and Canadians to join th"rn. The
figures of the size of these element are
necessarily only approximated, but they
show that this movement may have a de
cidedly appreciul lc effect upon the vote
in that city. There are said to be 10,l0
male adult Canadians in Chicago, of
whom only 1,21 H) arc naturalize!, ruJ 10,
.D0 English and bcotch men, of whom
even a smaller proportion are believed to
be citizens. Even allowing for exaspera
tion in these figures, it w.ll be seen that
this element might do a pood dad morn
than hoid the balance of power in some of
our cities, ar.d with their vote cajt uu the
tide of public honesty and municipal econ
omy, as most of them doubtless would be,
they could cxerciso a great influence for
gxd. In the public utterances thus far
made by these bodies in diiierent parts of
the luion they have shown themselves
strong friend of the common school sys
tem, and especially determined to check
Americans, and all patriotic citizens,
will giadly welcome this new element into
the great fraternity of citizenship. The
very strength of their attachment to the
mother country, which has probably been
their chief reason for continuing their al
legiance to her so long, will make
them the best American citizens when they
have once been naturalized. They are
among the moat intelligent of our alien
residents. I heir traditional sturdmess
will make them independent in political
action. No one will ever hear of a Hosa
carrying the English, or Bcotch, or Cana
dian vote in his pocket It is only fair to
ray, at the same time, that their assump.
liou of their lull duties as American citi
zens has been delayed long enough. It is
time that they should vote, serve on luries
and perform the order of duties of citizen
ship with the rest of us. When so many
of the vexatious problems of our National'
life arise from the presence In the country
of great numbers of uneducated and even,
lawless foreigners, It would be eminently1
appropriate, to say the least, that all Intel J
ligent and law-abiding foreigners should
do whatever lies in their power to help
along the cause of good government.
The proportion of the English element
in our population is not fully realized, per
haps, by many. The censusof 1170 showed
1.030,7o3 persons born in the British Em
pire, including British America but ex
cluding Ireland. Iu other words, the',
number of persons born on the soil of
Great Britain and the Colonies was only'
219,816 less than the number born in Ire
laud. In New York City there were by
the censusof 1W0 more than 46,000 per
sons born in Great Britain and the Colo
nics, excluding Ireland. How many of
these are naturalized?. It would be inter
esting to know. In Philadelphia there
were more than 35,000 such persons. At
the present time these figures would need
to be considerably increased, as the immi
gration from the British Empire has been
large during the last ten years. It hat
reached a point where it much exceeds the
immigration from Ireland. Up to the 1st
of August there were 9,500 more Immi
grants from Great Britain this year than
from Ireland, as shown by the figures of
the Bureau of Statistics. Obviously, the
British-Americans can be a power in our
politics and in a way which no one can
find any fault.
A llrnve Defence.
A Manitoba paper contains the follow
ing accouut of a brave little boy's defence
of a wounded brother, who was attacked
by a cougar. John Kodenberger is a farm
er who lives near Shelton's Point. YV. T.,
and his four children the youngest 4 and
the eldest 9 go to school. The school
house Is on the road between Big and Lit
tle Bhookum Bays.
The other afternoon, while the children
were going home, they were startled by an
awful screech, and the next instant a big
cougar launched himself from the over
banging limb of a tree, right upon 6 years
old Jesse, who was sturdily tramping be
hind the other children.
The little boy was dashed to the ground
and the heavy paw of the cougar peeled
his scalp down over the right side of his
face, and lacerated the cheek and ear.
But the cougar had no chance to do further
John Rodenbcrger, 8 years old, had
been walking juat in front of Jesse, car
rying a big bottle, in which had been the
milk that formed part of the children's
luncheon. He threw himself upon the
cougar, grabbed him by the ear with one
hand, and struck him with the bottle as
hard as he could. The animal raised its
head from its victim, and Johnny gave It
another blow with the bottle. It reared
to attack the brave boy. but another blow
nearly knocked him over, and with a yell
it turned and tied.
The children took tbe wounded boy
home, and the neighbors set out to hunt
the cougar. They found and killed It
near the place where it had attacked the
children. It was fullgrown, and measured
nearly nine feet from tip to tip.
Wonderful Production of Dakota.
Among the contributions to the Minne
sota State Fair from Dakota were the fol

long and" remarkably well filled. A bushel
of potatoes, Beauty of Hebron, weighing
two pounds each. A squash, "Queen of
the Missouri Valley," weighs 129 pounds.
It is a wonderful specimen. A mammoth
Hubbard squash, weighing seventy-five
pounds. A large sample of tobacco, four

New Vukk, Sept. 25. A Washington
special says: It is reported here thai
the administration H considering the
advisability of making overatures fr
the acquisition of the island of St.
Thornac, V. I., as a naval and commer

light of d'flic iittes encountered in secur

referred to 83 the kiytne of the W tst

The advantages of this island as a
rendezvous for our West Ind aequaurun
have long boon recognized. It lies right
io the track of all veiBois from Europe,
Brazil, West Indies and the Pacific
ocean. It is the central point from
which any or all of the West Indies can
be assailed, while it is iinprevious to
attacks from landing parties and can be
fortified to any extent at a men normal
cost It has often beea referred to as a
small Gibrulter t.tat ould only be
attacked by a naval for.e. Being sur
rounded by reefs and breakers, there is
no opportunity for landing troops, and
every point near which a vessel or boat
could upproach is a natural fortification.

New i ork, Sept. '25. A question of
great interest to the Koman Catholic
church and its relations to secret soci
eties has been revived by a dispatch
from Addison, If. V., stating that one
Dennis U'Keefe of that place was at once
a Catholic entitled to all the privileges
tf the churcbrand an Odd Fellow in
good standing. It is stated that the
question as to raising the ban against
certain secret societies had been referred
to Archbishop Corrigan. The Archbis
hop is nt present out of town, but
Father L .Voile, his secretary, said that I
while be could not say positively as to
Archbishop Corrigan's decision in this
particular case, he believed that it was
no longer against the law of the Roman
Catholic church to be an Odd Fellow.
