TO MULTIPLY HOMES, "1 would extend the same law to lots anc. houses in cities and object being to fill our country with the owners of homos so that every child shall bave a fireside, bvery father and mother a roof, providing they have the intelliKoiK-e, the energy and the in dnstry to acquire the necessary moans. Ten ements and Hats and rented land are, in my judgment, the enemies of civilization. The> make the rich richer, and the ]xxir poorer. They put a in palaces, but they put many in prisons, "The home is the unit of civilization, good government; and to secure homos for a great majority of our citizens would be to lay tbe foundation of our government deeper anil broader and stronger than that of any nation thnt has existed among men. No one places n higher vaiue upon the free sohoo: tlmn I do. But much that is railed education simply unfits men successfully to flght the battle of life. Much valuable time is wasted in studying languages that long ago were dead, nnd histories in which there is notru VSKKUL EDUCATION. "The object of all education should be to Increase the usefulness man. Every human being should lie taught that his flrst duty is to take care of himself, and that to be self- respecting he must be. To live on the labor of others, either by force which en-laves, or by cunning which robs, or by borrowing or lagging, is wholly dishonor- able. Every man should taught some useful art. This would give, a feeling of in- dejiendenee, which is the firmest foundation of honor, of character. Every man, know- inR that lie is useful, admires himself. In all the schools children should be taught to work- in wood and iron, to understand the construc- tion and use of machinery, to become ac- quainted with the great forces that man is using to do his work. The present system of education teaches names, not things. It is as if we should spend years In learning the names of cards without playing a game. The more real education the less crime, and the more homes the fewer prisons. "Ignorance, filth and poverty are the mis- sionaries of crime. As long as dishonorable success outranks honest loug as so- ciety tows and cringes before tbe great thieves, there will lie little ones enough to fill tho jails. MORAL RF.SPONRIBILITT, the penalties, all the punishments arc inflicted under a belief tlmt man can do right under all his conduct is absolutely under his control, and that his will is a pilot that can, in spite of winds and tides, reach any port desired. All this is, in my judgment, n mistake. must take into consideration the nature of facts of power of limita- tions of the force of result of power of domination of diseases of tho brain tyranny of cruelty of con- results of effects of poverty and wealth, of helplessness and power. Our ignorance should make us hesi- tate. Our weakness should make us merciful. "T cannot, more fittingly close this address than by quoting the prayer of the Buddhist: I pray Thee to have pity on the Thou hast already bad pity on the virtuous by making them so.'" The banquet of the Bar association, held at the Delavan house last evening at 8 o'clock, was by far the largest the organization has ever held. The banquet hall was full to over- flowing. A f'ter tbe inner man had been sat- isfied, thn following toasts were to: Tbe by Crovernor Hill; "The Legis- by Speaker Husted; "Lawyers as Legislators." by Senator Linson; "Ladies as by Col.

Johnston, a lawyer at 73 WaH street aad superintendent of a Sunday school in Brooklyn, was arrested on indictments charging him with forging a note on the Chinese Sixth society and a note on a Chinese firm in Mott street. He gave bail in The arrest grows out of Johnston's connection with tho Chinese forger flui Pong, one of his Sunday school scholars, who is in prison on charges of swindling his countrymen out of by forged notes.

The prospects are that the great snow blockade on the Cen- tral Pacific road will bo cleared some, time to-day. Clear weather is reported at all stations from Rocklin to Truckee with one or two exceptions. At Ciscoe the snow is fifteen feet duep on the level, and in the drifts the snow is three or four times as deep. Fifteen engines are at work with tlio rotary plow near Champion's Hpur. The snow was thrown fifteen feet on either side of the track. One hundred and flfty snow shovellers, who wera engaged in digging a trench, wero surprised and completely buried by MIOW from the plow. They wero not badly injured. The way is now clear to Tunnel No. l.'I. Tho rail- rood officials say that tho load will surely opened by to-duy. Hunvy slides and drifts, ivevcr, are rqiorteil Ixitwoeu Truckee and Kcc.i. A rotary plow is clearing road to Chic Canyon nnd it is exerted to clear tho track to the two imprisoned passenger trains bc- llliic Canyon and Altu within a few .11'-. None of tbe Know have caved in, although the weight of the snow in some places is very heavy. Tlm average depth ot snow along tlio sheds is twenty feet, Over snow shovellers are on tho mountains. Truckee is cut oil from all communication with the outside world, but this is true of all mining and other towns in tho Sierras. A passenger A. K.

Jacob IMiitz, a snuw Kliuvuller, was killod at I'olfax by lieing struck by a ear. IMPRISONED PAShENOKRS. Most of the passengers in the two train! near Blue Canyon are well provided for the delay.

At Dutch Flat, on tlie western slope of the Sierras, there are seven feet of snow ou the feel more than ever liofore ro- inlod. The wagon roads are all blockaded. Vlany bouses have been crushed by the snow, lilt no lives have lieell lost. Snow shoes are the only means of getting about. In addition to the imprisoned trains near 3.luo Canyon two passenger trains are snowed in near Shady Run. Tbe railroad Mople have done everything in their power i make tho passengers comfortable.
