Bouncement of some British allenlats
that ao far aa concerns the people of
Great Britain Insanity la Increasing.
The recently published report of the
commissioners In lunacy for tha Brit
ish kingdom shows a marked lncraaa
In the number of the insane. The sta
tistics indicate that twsnty-flre yesrs

tion. The figures for the year 1804
this Increase to be carried on at the
same rate it Is easy to figure ont an
alarming number of Insane jieople and
a startling deterioration of the human
race a couple of centuries hence. It is
to be remembered, however, that much
of this apparent Increase is superficial.
In the first place, the advance of the
alienist's science has caused the quick
er apprehension of cases which a few
years ago would have been Ignored as
Instances of mere eccentricity. The In
creased accommodations of theasylums.
also, have resulted In a more general
resort to their use than heretofore.
Cases which some years ago would have
been set down tut merely the result of
senility are now classified among cer
tain forms of mental diseane and count
ed as such. Individuals who would
formerly have been kept at home and
obscured from the public statistician
are now gent to the asylum and counted
among the serious cases of aemetitla.
Above all, the advance in the methods
of collating and recording statistics has
resulted In the counting of many cases
which formerly would have escaped no
tice. Wplghlng these considerations nt
their full value, It will lie seen that the
apparent growth of insanity in Great
Britain may in fact be no growth at all.
And as for insanity in this country,
there is np reason to suppose that It Is
becoming any more prevalent than in
the eider land. The 'talk about the
nervous temperament of Americans
and the high tension under which they
live and work has had the effect of
securing an eauy credence for the
stories of dangerous tendencies among
the people. That there are tendencies
Injurious to nerve and mind no one will
deny. lint, taking all things Into con
sideration and comparing the two coun
tries off-setting one peculiarity with
another there Is no renson to believe
that the growth of insanity here is any
more a matter for alarm than It is In

Hard Coal Hlghar.
New Tobk, Oct. 2. As a result of a
consultation between the large coal
producer, an advance was made In the
line prices of anthracite coal. .There
was no general agreement, but prices
were put up from 15 to 25 cents a ton.
The Fituiown advanced 25 cents.
This advice, It is said, will maintain
tha normal difference aa compared
with tidewater figures. No advance
will be made at this time, it is said, in
freights on anthracite. The rate from
the mine to tidewater ii fixed at 40 per
cent of the selling price on tha bulk of
the coal originated from independent
operators. This, at the present price
of coal, makes the rate from 11.40 on
stove to f 1.30 on broken sizes. The
fixed rate now is about 81.23. This
rate is expected to be advanced m
time, but in all probability cot until
the market improves.
