Chicago is trying to stop bnsoban
playing on Sunday, and Now Yorkers
say they Intend to seal up every saloon
on Sunday. Such is reform.
Chicago papers claim that efficient
polico work has caused half tho crimi
nals to leavo tho city. Unless sho is
careful Chicago will get below tho two
million limit in population.
It Ib now charged that a dying man
was put out of a hospital In Chicago
because he could not hand over tho $10
demanded for a week's lodging. Thank
goodness none of them has yet got to
the state where it is accused of throw
ing out the corpses that fail to hand
over a fee for embalming. That seems
to bo coming, howover.

Tho convicts In Sing Sing prison aro

polico Inspector sent up for extortion.
It appears that a good many of them
were sent up under McLaughlin's re

if they havo to lynch tho unhappy in
spector In tho prison to do it. The
threats aro so numerous and so de
termined that tho prison authorities
havo taken tho matter up with a view
to tho proper protection of tho ex-Inspector.
The old settlers of Portage County,
"Wisconsin, had a reunion at Plover a
few days ago. Among thoso present
was Benjamin Ellis, now 82 yenrs old,
who was a passenger on the first train
of cars run in tho United States, be
tween BoBton and Lowell, sixty years
ago. Mr. Hills was born in tho State
of Mnin, and was in Boston when tho
first experiment in railroading was
made. A track was laid around Fan
euil Hall and a car placed on It. Tho
power was applied by men who turned
a crank, and ho was one of them. This
was bIx years before tho railroad from
Boston to Lowell was built.
At a recent mcelng of tho French
Sennto Commltteo on tho Colonies M.
Chautemps, tho Minister of Marine, be
gan to read a bulky report on tho pres
ent condition of tho colonics. At tho
very first wo"ds sovernl sonators
showed signs of restlessness, and finally
one of them, bolder than tho rcast, cab
"Pardon me, M. lo Mlnlstre, but you
oro reading nn old ropprt with which
we aro well acquainted, na It wns road
to us by ono of your predeccssoora."
Soveral members of tho commltteo be
gan to smile. M. Chautemps muttered
an apology and, folding up his papers,
bowed himself out.
The average expenses of tho students
at Yalo Collcgo, according to the senior
class book, are $912 for tho freshman
year, $943 for the sophomore, $912 cad'
for the Junior and senior years. There
are many students whoso expenses are
much less than theso amounts, but
thero aro many others whoso expenses
' aro much more, to raise tho averago to
more than tho earning capacity of tho
average graduate for soveral years at
least after ho leaves college. Theso
figures would requlro an earning ca
pacity of from $18 to $20 a week, or
more than $3 a day for tho six working
dayB of the week. How many college
graduates can secure positions where
they will earn $20 a week?
Tho English Liberals are still assert
ing that they wero turned out of power
by a "snap vote." As it is evident that
the whole question of the political com
plexion of Parliament will shortly be
settled by an appeal to tho country, It
might be tho wiser part for tho Lib
erals to strive to show cnuso why they
should bo restored to power rather
than to waste time in whimpering over
the way In which they wero deprivpd
of It. At this distance it docs not seem
that tho lato Liberal regime In Parlia
ment has produced any tangible re
sults. None of the reforms promised
lias been effected. Under Gladstone, as
under Rosebery, tho Liberals wero Im
potent to overcome the Inertia of ex
isting conditions. A Conservative Par
liament, it it wero to assume a reac
tionary policy, may accomplish more
for real Liberalism In England than
lias the Liberal party as It has been
constituted of late years.

who has spent considerable time in
China, said to-day:' In view of the
fact thut wo havo received no cable

Tho Rev. Jacob Gillcson, secretary
of the board of missions of tho Pres

society of England, which established
a mission at Ku Cheng In 1847. Tho
mission is attached to the church of
England nnd has two houses there.
The society maintains twenty-two
schools in tho province. There Is also

derided her. Saturday night a com
mittee waited on tho minister nnd com
manded him to denounce bloomers tho
following day. Sunday Mr. Wads
worth did not refer to Miss Coleman,
bicycle or bloomers. That night ho
was told that ho cither had to de
nounce Miss Coleman's riding habit or
resign. Ho was given until last night
to do so.
Last night a prayer meeting wns
held, Parson Wadsworth was in the
pulpit. The benches and aisles wero
crowded. Miss Coleman waited until
tho audience became restless for music.
Then she strodo down tho aisle dressed
in bloomers as red as tho sun and took
her scat at the organ. Some familiar
tunes woro sung nnd played, but be
fore the minister could begin to pray
his audience, or at least the most of it,
had dispersed As they wore leaving
tho building they wero hissed. After
ward Parson Wadsworth and Miss
Coleman's friends continued tho Lcr
vices. THEY CALL FOR ARMS.
