THE CLOSE AWD TUE HERALD.
The vigorous protest which The Globe made on Wednesday against unfair and ungenerous treatment at the hands of the esteemed editor of the esteemed Herald has been received with favor by business men and the public generally. We have received many oral messages and letters which Indicate that tho arrogance and Ixird Verisopht airs of tho Herald are widely understood and universally deprecated. As tut eminent statesman, now somewhat defunct, would say “It was a useful and salutary thing'’ to make an attempt to bring the editor of tho Herald to his senses and try to convince him that he was an ordinary mortal rather than an extraordinary person specially favored by Divine Providence. It was evidently worth while to attempt to show him that the rules of fair play should govern him as well as all other Journalists. _ Whether the attempt will succeed or not time alone can show.
Tile editor of the Evening Star rolled up his sleeves yesterday and concluded a long article as lollows:
In conclusion, we beg to recall the newspaper outlook in Boston twenty-five years ago. Then the Times was the foremost palier, and the Herald was struggling for a clean existence. The Times has passed out and the Herald taken its place. History sometimes repeat s itself; even tuck may some day have a turn, and, lf so, another foremost paper may. In the next ten years, change places with a present less successful neighbor.
The Lynn Item looks at the subject in this way:
It looks like war between The Globe and Herald. The former, having become rather tired of the latter's sneers, opens a column on the Herald, and defies It In good, sturdy fashion. Colonel Taylor invites Colonel Haskell “to nominate his poison," and w hether it shall lie “humor, sneers, slurs, sarcasm or good nature,” be proposes to have an inexhaustible supply, and aches to give the Herb! a “dose," Th* Glob* Is getting prosperous, has “paid a dividend In this year 3 882,’' and is justly proud of the fact. The manager who has made this success possible protioses to take no “sass” from Its aristocratic neighbor, and looking at It from our point of observation we should say that the Uerafd's business is to let The Globe alone.
And the Manchester Union suggests:
it w as downright cruelty In The Boston Globe to intimate that Mr. Haskell, editor of the Herald, declined to run for Congress in the ninth district of Massachusetts because of the fear that he could not lie elected. Mr. Theodore Lyman took the rejected nomination, and he was elected by a majority of 384ft. We fear that our esteemed Boston eontemjKiraries have been reading the very chaste remarks which the editors of the New York Times, World and Herald say about each other occasionally. and are inclined to enter upon the domain*)! “personal journalism.” Imagine a call loud rnougo to wake up the esteemed Post, so that it would have spirit enough to talk nark.
THE VIRGINIA ILECTIOV.
When General Mahone made his trade with the Republicans, and Hoar and Dawes became thereby his champions, he was promised an office for his henchman, Riddleberger, and the entire Federal patronage of the State of Virginia to help him secure entire control. When Arthur became President by the grace of Guiteau, he found this bargain among the political effects of the “ martyr president." He has siuce
carried out his part of it with fidelity and consistency. He has placed Ute post offices, the custom houses and the internal revenue offices of Virginia at the disposal of the Repudiationtst leader, and any Federal officer w ho dared to disobey the orders of the new boss was promptly disciplined. Even a poor woman, tjie widow of a soldier, was turned out of a post office to make room for a henchman of Mahone’s—a man who could control votes.
The next move made In favor of the renegade was that in which Hubbell figured. Mahone represented to the congressional committee that he could carry Virginia if he had money. Hubbell, the late highway man-at-large of the party, was instructed to send $10,000 Into the Btate, and later on $25,000 more was added. We published, a few weeks ago, some of the Mahone-Hubhell corre-spondenoe on the money question, which let allttle light In on the relations existing between the committee and the Virginia repudiator. It Is safe to presume that Mahone had $50,000 from assessments made on the officeholders of the country, both by himself and Chairman Hubbell.
What did he do with it? The Republican papers throughout the country favored the corrupt bargain made with him, because It was in the Interest of a “free ballot and a fair count." Mahone was pictured to us in the Northern States as a great missionary, who had dedicated his life to the regeneration of the South, the extinction of terrorism and bull-dozing at the polls, aud the inauguration of a new era of purity and honesty In political action. What did he do with the money sent him? A great popular movement, such as that of whirly he was said to be the head and front, usually does not need much money. Theodore Lyman was elected to Congress in Massachusetts with an expense of less than $160, aud Henry B. Levering was chosen by the people of the sixth district after a campaign which cost just $140. We have heard from reliable sources that Mahone spent $145,000 in his last campaign against political corruption In Virginia. Borne cif It was expended in the payment of poll-taxes, for there Is a property qualification there as well as in Massachusetts; some more was expended for legitimate purposes, but a large slice of It went to corrupt the ballot-box and defeat the will of the people.
But it teems from latest advices that even all these elements of strength sufficed not to give the Btate over fully to repudiation and political corruption. There was fraud at the polls, and dishonest counting after the ballots had been east. The county clerks and treasurers in sections where Mahone’s creatures were In office Issued receipted tax bills to the Readjuster managers, and they were put In the hands of negro repeaters, who voted on them. The evidence that such methods were employed In several of the congressional districts Is rapidly accumulating, and It Is expected that the contests to be Instituted during the early days of the Forty-eighth Congress will disclose a state of political dishonesty, corruption aud fraud seldom lf ever equalled In this country. It was to bring this about that our Massachusetts senators lent themselves and their influence to the Virginia boss. We hope they are pleased with the result of their brilliant effort.
The Republican managers, under the lead of Henry N. Sawyer, George G. Crocker aud Alphabet Bowdon, have trotted out their box of big, big D’s and are sticking them promiscuously on the backs of men wbo always support their ticket in municipal affairs, who show more subserviency to the Republican machine than well known Republicans, and asking the people to believe them Democrats. One of these tags has been planed to the lappet of Daniel D. Kelly's coat, and among other men who are honored with a label are Joseph Caldwell, Charles Hayden and T. J. Whldden. Mr. Kelly publicly withdrew from the Democ rat Ie party some time ago, and took two columns of the esteemed Post to give his reasons. Ile Is now a candidate for alderman for reaaons well known In Fast iioston, and he naturally seeks Republican support. Let them nominate him.
Circulars have been sent to “citizens" to meet and nominate a municipal ticket. Before the Bute election, circulars were sent out through Wards IO and 11 urging Republicans to defeat Mr. Swift, a Democrat, for Hie Senate and elect George G. Crocker, the regular Republican candidate. Mr. Swift has been for years a member of the “non-partisan" clique. Ile may find that it does not pay.
The New Orleans Tim es-Dem or rat has been for some Dine advocating lim establishment of a manufacturers’ bank In that city, and It assigns a reason fur lls I aith In UR success of such an institution which la very sign it. cant. “The simple
fact," says our contemporary, “that New Orleans has more than doubled Its cotton manufactories, cigar manufactories, and largely Increased the production of its foundries, and is rapidly assuming prominence as one of the great lumber markets of the world within the past two years, is sufficient evidence that the Industrial establishments of this city are on a solid, substantial basis, with a promising future ahead, and needing only the establishment of a manufacturers’ bank here to assure New Orleans becoming the great manufacturing centre of the South.”
THE SCARF. IN STEEL. AND ISON.
It appears from Interviews with leading representatives of the steel rail Industry that the threatened stoppage of Western mills was not the result of any concerted movement to influence the action of Congress at the approaching session. There has been an over-production of steel rails In this country under the stimulus of a high protective tariff and large profits in certain quarters. The supply has come to largely exceed the demand, and the inevitable of course happens. Mr. Hatfield of the Lackawanna Iron and Coal Company said to an Interviewer: “Until the demand of the country comes up to the capacity for production by the mills, supply must be in excess, and prices consequently low, unless enough works stop to make it a profitable business for those that run. The sooner some of them stop, the sooner the thing will rectify itself." Mr. Carnegie of Pittsburg said on this subject: “The truth of the matter is that we Bessemer people are between the upper and nether millstones In this country this year—the millstones being lack of demand and over-supply. The country is not going to lay 12,000 miles of railroad this year, as it did last year. If It were there would be enough business to go around and give all the mills a share, but as retrenchment appears to be the order Bessemer firms have felt It necessary to make an active competition for whatever of next year’s trade appeared in sight." He said, further, that the sudden drop in prices was caused by the action of the Scranton mills. "There was," he said, “a preconcerted arrangement on the part of Eastern men to squeeze out the Western people, as appears to have been covertly suggested. When Mr. Clark, the owner of the Scranton mill, came from ljurope last week, he found his mill without more than enough orders to last him a week. His coal and ore roads and mines were Idle, and there was no market. He resolved to make a market and quoted rails at the mill at $40 to $43 delivered In Chicago. He can’t make rails for $40, but he loses less at $40 than if he were to let hts mill lie Idle. He did what I would have done." Judging from previous reports, the steel rail manufacturers can afford to make considerable reductions and still live.
This Is the way the Washington Tost figures out the taxation business: “There are in the United States about 10,000,000 families. Our annual taxation for Federal purposes Is about $400,000,000. Each head of a family pays therefore an average tax of $40. Under the existing revenue system tile working classes are more heavily taxed than their wealthy neighbors, for the highest duties are imposed on the coarser goods used by the poor."
It might be proper to ask the distinguished Republican whose name usually figures at the head of the “non-partisan" movement what little giltedged Job he will engineer through the next city government in case he succeeds In securing a majority. We make the suggestion so that the gentlemen who have been Invited may think It
A Democratic “tax-payer," who has been usually “non-partisan" In municipal politics, said yesterday that his taxes had grown considerably during the last year and he didn’t know who was responsible therefor. He felt this year as though he ought to give his party a chance, and see lf taxation could not be kept down.
When a gentleman asked the Republican aldermanic committee why they did not take Alderman Woolley from Kist Boston, if they were desirous of having a Democrat, silence prevailed. But they selected D. D. Kelly.
Anotta at the Park in "Zip, or Point Evade Idght”—Other Pointe.
At the Park Theatre last evening Lotta and her company appeared in “Zip, or Point Lynde Light," before a crowded house. Tho audience testified Its warm appreciation of the little lady’s always cunning Impersonation by recalling her several times. Mr. Charles II. Bradshaw as Philosophy Jack was particularly happy In his conception of the character, striking a proper medium between the buffoonery into which it might easily develop and the too much dignity which would destroy lls flavor. Mr. Ralph Delraore did fairly well as Gulius Galetti, though his broken Italian is open to criticism. CeclTRayne as Hon. Chammy Elmore occasionally relapsed Into stiffness, though his Impersonation was in the main natural and animated. Miss Lulu Jordan decidedly overdid Amanda Lovelace, and Mrs. Boniface made a rather weak and colorless Mrs. Elkton. __

A Remarkable Case on Trial Before Judge Barker.
Willie Sa Cole This Time Seeks to Recover $7000,
Or Three Times What He Says His Brother Lost Bt Gaming.
Public interest was excited last spring by a suit brought by Willie S. Cole against Charles J. Groves, one of the alleged proprietors of the gambling den, 12 Montgomery place, to recover about $3000, that being three times the amount alleged to have been lost by his brother at various times at that resort. The suit was decided In his favor, and a verdict ordering the payment of the money was rendered. While S. Cole now’brings a similar suit against D. R. Ap-plebury and Jerome B. Melville, the alleged proprietors of a gambling house at No. 153 Court street. The indictment contains no less than thirty-six counts, and the sums lost at various times amount to about $2600. The law provides that hi such cases the plaintiff may recover three times the amount lost, and Cole, therefore, brings suit to recover about $7000 from Applebury. The case came up before Judge Barker In the second session of the Superior (Civil) Court yesterday. Messrs. H. E. anet George R. Hwasey appeared for the plaintiff; Augustus Russ and W. G. A. Pattee for tile defendant.
The first witness called was Mr. A. Wentworth, the owner of the building 153 Court street, who testified that in 1880 and 1881 Applebury was a tenant of that building, and occupied the chambers up one flight.
The court then took a recess till 2 o’clock.
The court came In again at 2 o'clock. Herbert. L. Littlefield gave unimportant testimony.

Taking in the " Reflections" — Specimen Hoodlumism—A Tap on th* Window—An Aged Vagabond—Quick Transformation Scone—Bits of Iniquity and Crime.
An unusual number of persons committed the absurdity of sitting for three or four hours In the room of the Municipal Court yesterday, when the day out of doors was as flue as ever November dared to show on her calendar. People wfho had no particular business, who had no friends In trouble in the dock, and who had nothing more than a morbid interest In what was going on. If they had chosen the better part and inhaled the Invigorating atmosphere on the sunny side of the street they would have been adding a little something to their stock of longevity, although they might have missed the odoriferous exhalations from the dock and failed to inspect, for an hour or so, the dark side of life, but they didn’t They committed the absurdity above referred to, and escaped without judicial punishment.
The independent and terror-inspiring hoodlum is one of the most difficult characters to handle. He is ubiquitous, and his offences are usually of such a petty nature that they are more aegravat-lng than they are dangerous, and yet he is a constant menace to the peace of society. He is not particularly an Importation from the Pacific coast. He thrives iii the East as well, and Boston has her share of bim. ye Is unaesthetic and profane; he is villainous, and always on the lookout for an opportunity to do mischief. Occasionally lie oversteps all bounds and goes In for a career of crime which shows that his preferences In this manner are not strongly marked and that all things evil come to him as ny second jtalure. William Burlies, a fellow about 18 years old, with Inliorn viciousness marked all over his countenance, has been running things his own way for some little time. Observing that one Shlenfleldt, a boy somewhat younger than himself, was well dressed and well behaved, he threw an old shoe at him, striking him In the back of his head, knocking off his hat, which Butties appropriated. Shlenfleldt’# father went out on the street to Investigate the matter, and meeting Burnies was greeted with a rap on the side of the head. There was another complaint against Burnes for assaulting Martin Gaffney. During the past three month# this specimen hoodlum has been engaged In stealing from market and beer wagons. Ile will occupy a state room in the house of correction for the next six months. Three months on each offence.
John Keenan Is a very young man, but he Is a victim of alcoholism to such an extent that he has lieen before the court for drunkenness and has been sent to a home for inebriates, all of which availed not, and yesterday he was In court on complaint of his family. His mother said all she could In his favor, but his honor thought tnat four months in the house of industry would keep him away from temptation for a while. He appealed, and was nut under $800 bonds.
James Carny came to Boston to enjoy himself. He accepted an Invitation, given by a tap 011 Hie window, to enter a house on North street, and. after drinking a little “tonic,” suddenly missed hi# sealskin purse which contained $6. He accused Barbara Hickey of having picked Ins pocket and she was arrested, charged with the larceny. When asked why It was that he entered a house unknown to him be remarked that it was a “cold evening” and he went in to warm himself. Counsel for Barbara claimed that Hie whole ease was impossible. His honor said it was the "same old story,’’ and so long as men were such fools as to enter these places such cases would occur. Barbara was fined $15 and costs. Her counsel asked that she be put on probation. “That would he absurd," said his honor.
An elderly woman named Bridget Flynn has been wandering about the streets, poorly clad and without any fixed place of abode. Wednesday night she applied for a lodging at a police station, and yesterday she w as before the court as a vagabond. She begged, with tears in lier eyes, not to be sent to the house of Industry. "Isn’t it better that you should have a comfortable place for the winter than for you to be wandering about the streets with no home?" "Please don’t send me In." She was sentenced for five months, and she immediately appealed in a decidedly emphatic maimer. There Is no doubt but she will get there and be cared for during the season.
Edwin Murray was chai ned with the larceny of a watch and chain from Hannah Murphy. The articles belonged to Hannah’s father, and Murray claimed that he bought them of her for $3.

EZRA H. HEYWOOD IN COURT.
Charged With Sending Obscene literature Through the Matt*.
Before Commissioner Hallett yesterday morning there was an unusually variegated and interested assembly of the supporters of Ezra H. Heywood, who was arraigned on a charge, by Anthony Comstock, United States Post office Inspector, of sending obscene literature through Hie mails. Among those present were Hon. Elizur Wright, George Cbainey, J. I*. Monduin, Benjamin H. Tucker, Arthur Hildreth of Melrose, son of tho historian, Dr. Dillingham and Professor Toohey. Haines and Vesta Heywood, the children of the defendant, were also on hand. The literature referred to in the complaints was “Cupid’s Yokes,” regarded as an old offender, aud certain selected poems of Walt Whitman. Heywood was charged with sending these through the malls to one J. A. Mattock, P. O. box 441, Nyack-on-the-Hudsun. A second complaint charged Heywood with sending to George Edwards, same address, printed advertisements, giving information aa to where, how and of whom a certain article, designed for purposes not encouraged in the statutes, might be obtained. Anthony Comstock and Postmaster Gregory of Princeton, Mass., first testified. The counsel for the defence, consisting of J. F. Pickering, George W. Seurlc and J. Storer Cobb, filed a demurrer and a motion to quash. There was some irregularity ta the first complaint, and It was finally abandoned. The second complaint, regarding chiefly tho advertisement, was pressed. Tho evidence of the government having been put in, the counsel for the defendant were granted a half-hour recess for consultation.
At the afternoon hearing the defendant was held lu $1000 for appearance before the December gram! Jury of tile United States District Court. Hon. Elizur Wright, not under oath, which he objected to taking, averred that he was worth over $3000, and was about to go hail for the defendant. But Heywood objected to coming forward “to commit un assault upon himself" or In other words to accept Mr. Wright's assistance and give ball. The court then sato: “I commit you to Jail." Twice the friends of Heywood induced him to appear before the commissioners to make an explanation, but all that could be elicited from him was that be would give his word of mouth that he would be on hand when wanted. A third attempt, however. was more successful, and the defendant went through the necessary formula and was balled.

Enthusiastic Meeting in Gloucester Last Night.
An Eloquent Speech by Mr. Charles H. Lltchman.
Resolutions Adopted and a Com* mittee of Twelve Chosen.
especial Despatch to Th# Boston Globe.)
Gloucester, November 23.—City Hall wa# packed this evening in response to the call for the
citizen# to assemble to express their Indignation against fish monopolies and ring#. In regard to the one in Boston lately disbanded it was a matter of congratulation. This afternoon, however, the attention of the public wa# called to a monopoly here In oltr own city by the following flyer :‘“Down with the New England halibut monopoly. For the past sixteen years a company, known as the New England Fish Company, has held sway in this city. It I# made up to a large extent of Boston and New York parties, not one of whom risk a dollar in the fishing industry of Gloucester. Little do they care what privations and hardships are endured bv the men who pursue the hazardous business of" fishing. Fishermen, you barely earn a livelihood at your dangerous occupation, w’hlle the fish monopolists on the other hand live in clover. The agent of the New England company is a fair sample of the company he represents, as he whirls through our streets In his fine carriage, drawn by a span of blooded horses. Fishermen, compare your condition to his, and ask yourselves if the monopolists are not getting more than a fair share of the fruits of your toll. Already one ring In Boston has been broken; now let this one in your own city suffer the same fate. Do away with these monopolists and rings and you make a competition among the fish buyers ana establish a live market for your products. All fish caught by Gloucester vessels should be landed at Gloucester aud sold direct from Gloucester. Why go to Boston at all with your fish? Let the Boston dealers, who have tried to foster a monopoly upon upon you. come here for their fish or go without. It Is time that the fishermen took
A Bold Stand
In this matter and make a new departure by marketing your catch in Gloucester, and show the Boston land sharks that you , are under no obligations to them whatever. It will prove a great benefit to yourselves and the citizens In general. It will be ventilated at City Hall this evening. Come one, come all.”
Mayor Williams called the meeting to order. George J. Tarr of the Bay State Halibut Company, who has been so instrumental In breaking up the Boston ring, was chosen chairman, and took the chair amid the cheers of the audience.
Mr. Charles II. Lltchman of Marblehead was the first speaker of the evening, and In his usual eloquent manner thoroughly ventilated the subject of monopolies, hut confining himself more particularly to the New England Fish Company. Mr. Lltchman explained In a concise manner the advantages of the fishermen marketing their fish in Gloucester and forcing Boston dealers to purchase from here direct, thus giving to this city the full beuefit of lier great fishing industry. He showed how the owners and fishermen acting in unity held the matter in their own hands and could break up any fish monopoly or ring, MUI til the place of one fresh halibut finn there would be numerous firms In the business, and there would be a lively competition for fish and high prices. The speaker, in alluding to the manner In which Mr. Tarr had acted In relation to the Boston ring, complimented him highly, and also referred In fitting terms to the determination of the fishermen who came to Gloucester with their fish. The speaker was listened to with marked attention and frequently applauded.
At the close of nis speech
The Following Preamble and Resolution
Whereat, an Important crisis ha# arisen In the principal Industry of the city of Gloucester, an Industry employing hundreds of vessels, thousands of men and millions of dollars, an I ranking in all its various branch#* among the greatest In the State and nation; and,
Whereas, for mutual protection, It Is absoluter necessary th#t tome action should be taken to retain in our city this Important Industry which whitens our harbor wtthi ■ sails and furnishes employment to the larger portion of our citizens: aud,
Whereas. It Is proper that a brief statement should be given to th* public of the causes which have led to this meeting of the eitlzeos. therefore we offer to the public tills truthful account of tile situation of the fishing industry of Gloucester. A recent combination In the city of Boston, having for Its object the complete control of tho fresh fish business of New Fat gin nd, as well a# the complete subserviency of every vessel owner mid fisherman engaged in it, has been broken by the manly action of one firm in
our own city, sustained bv the determined cooperation of the fishermen dealing In that market. A combination fully as dangerous and obnoxious bad existed in our midst for the past sixteen years, gradually extending Its operations and increasing Its power until It has gained a monopoly of the halibut trade of tim market so strong that no other firm can stand against it and compelling other firma for self-prntectlon to enter and give allegiance to the same combination. No party today can buy a trip of halibut in Gloucester and sell it again with. out the consent of the New England Fish Company and allies, the Atlantic Halibut Company and Stockbridge A Co. This monopoly threatens the dealers that it will not sell them any halibut if at any tim# they purchase of other panics, thus monopolizing to themselves the entire halibut trade of Gloucester. Shall this condition of affairs go on, gathering strength as it mmiuues, aud our paralyzed Industry make no protests. Wo predict, aud not without good reason, that under favorable condition# our population can be doubled in the next ten years. We are hardly able to meet the present demand for our fish. We will probably have within ten years a thousand sail of vessels fitted from this port. If this monopoly is not broken now It will be far more difficult lf not wollnlgh impossible to attempt a change then. When it ;s remembered that this New England monopoly pays a very small perceutage of taxes In our city, that its large dividend* go to New York ana Boston, and that It runs no risk of loss of life or of property In the fishing industry of Gloucester, Is It not our imperative duty to act for our own self-protection? In view of these facts here stated we submit the following:
Ke»olved, That a committee of twelve be chosen from this meeting, to be known as the “Committee ot Protection,” to take into consideration the present condition of affairs, devise some proper remedy, and to secure, therefor, the pledged support aud uuited endorsement of the entire fishing industry of Gloucester.
The following committee of protection were chosen: David S. Pressup, George J. Tarr, E. L. McKenney, Captain Edward Morris, Captain William Hatty, Captain Nathaniel Greenleaf, Frank wonson, Sylvauus Smith, Captain Edward Cash, Benjamin Low, Captain Jesse Lewis, Captain William Gray.

The Boston No-Licehse Union Organized-A Ceaseless War on the Sale of Liquor to be Waged—Who Were there.
Through William H. Colcord, committee, an invitation was extended to all persons opposed to granting licenses in Boston to attend a meeting to be held In Wesleyan Hall last evening to organize
a "Boston No-L1ccnse Union.” Hon. Rufus S. Frost, Rev. Drs. A. J. Gordon, A. A. Miner, O. F. Gifford, J. W. Hamilton and others were announced to speak. Music by the Ko# sin I quartet was held out as a further attraction. All this brought together a full house— about 200. Prominent In a front seat sat Henry IL Faxon of Quincy. Rev. Dr. Miner sat near by. aud otUcrpromlncnt temperance men were scattered through the audience. Mr. William H. Colcord called the meeting to order. He was chosen temporary chairman, and Mr. William K. Sheldon temporary sec re Lux The chairman made a brief address and proeeedfa to read a draft of a constitution which hail been prepared for the proposed society. The constitution was unanimously adopted.
The constitution often# with a preamble which declares "that a thorough organization of the nolicense advocates. Irrespective of party, should be made for aggressive work." It then provides that the name of Die association shall be tile Boston No License Union, and that its officers shall hold office for one year, or till their successors are chosen. The executive committee, when full, shall consist of five persons for cash ward of tho city, and shall meet for conference a# often as the necessity of the work In hand demands. Any legal voter may be entered on the roll ot membership of the union by Ids agreeing to vote "No” on the question of granting licenses for the sale of intoxicating liquors.
The chairman then read the following
Tut of Officers,
who were elected Without opposition:
President—Hon. John G. Webster.
Vice-presidents—Hon. Kobert Treat Paine. Jr.. Hon. Edward 8. Tobey, Eton. Jacob .sleeper, Hon. Roland Worthington, Rev. E. B. Webb. D. D., Rev. William B. Wright. I). I).. Rev. A. J. Gordon, D. I) .

Eben Tourgee, Esq., Dr. J. R. Boynton.
Secretary—William E. Sheldon, rfisq.
Treasurer—Thomas W. Bicknell. Esq.
Some one in the audience here created a little breeze by asking what had become of tile no-license committee which existed last year. The chairman said that an organization which at this late hour had not manifested'any disposition to take hold of the work must certainly be either dead or something worse. (Applause.)
The chairman appointed Mr. Bicknell of Ward 24 and Mr. William C. Green of Ward 22 to escort President Webster to the chair.
President Webster, w ho was greeted with hearty applause, spoke of the work With which tile newly-organized union had to perform. Referring to the liquor sellers, he asked: “Do we call these men criminals above all men?” Mr. Faxon shouted out, "I do!" and everybody laughed. Continuing, Mr. Webster said: “It may me an aggressive work that we undertake to do; but I regard it rather as a work defensive. Those whom we oppose are handed together, and I say we come in on the defensive, as much as those who contended to save the freedom of the Union. (Applause.) We must have some kind of sympathy and pity for these men, but never submit to their wrong-doing if we can help it. In this city, a# I know, the union and strength is against us, but there is this one thing to encourage us. In the Htate at large I am glad lo say not one town In six wants license, and I think those which do are insane—a good many of them. We have plenty of work to (to,
I consider It simply a work of defence; and, my friends, It Is an honorable work, an urgent work, a work that becometh the purest men and women Iii the land." (Applause.)
President Webster introduced
Mr. J. F. CL Hyde of Newton
as the first speaker. There are two things, said he, that they say we have on the brain out there in Newton. One Is Newton; the other Is the circuit railroad, and they might add temperance. Newton is a very old town, and from its very foundation It has been a temperance town. Among Its residents have been many temperance advocates of tile highest class; such, for instance, as William Jackson, to whom be all honor. Newton is the sixteenth city in Massachusetts iii age. It Is the banner city of Massachusetts on the subject of temperance. At the last election 166 votes were cast for license and 1265 for temperance. (Applause.) We have not done as have some cities—notably Lynn—which voted for license and then allowed rum to be openly sold. Today, as far as I know, there isn’t a grog shop in the city of Newton. The Mayor is a temperance man. The city marshal wants to keep his place (laughter and applause), and he prosecutes ruin-sellers as lie would any class of law breakers. We have been working for temperance,and we mean to keel) on till Boston anti all the other cities In the Commonwealth vote as Newton does. Tills Is how we do our work: First, we enlist the ministers. They are all with us hut one. I won’t mention his name, because it wouldn’t look well in tile palier# next morning. (Mr. Faxon—“I would.” Laughter and applause.) Yes, I know von would, hut we wouldn’t. Perhaps we have a better way. Thi ii we work at toe polls, where mash can be done. The women, too. render valuable assistance, but I was to make only a short speech. Therefore I close abruptly, hoping that you may even surpass In your own cities the work we have done in Newton. (Applause.)
The meeting was further addressed by Hon. Rufus S. Frost of Chelsea. Rev. Dr. A. A." Miner, Professor A. A. Starr of Westfield, N. J., Revs. O. P. Gifford and J. A. Hamilton and others. The addresses were well received and Interspersed with singing. _

THE NEW OLIVE BUTTER
Is excellent for frying purposes. There’s somethin* In a name, hut probably nothing of the “olive In th* butter except its color; but, besides being assured by chemists that this is a perfectly pure vegetable oil. all housekeepers who have tried it will agree that It la extremely economical and mages a very delicate frying material. Here was formerly the situation In the kitchen over the frying-pan: You could take lard, which wa# not cheap, aud “used up” very fast; you hah butter, which, beside* being expensive, required a skilful cook to keep it from burning; or you could use #al#d oil, which, though costing alarmingly lo begin with. required so little to do the work that the cooking school would tell you it was like the widow’s cruse—It did not seem to lose perceptibly; after frying fifty oysters the bottle was nearly as full as before. Hut very few American housekeepers could he brought, by Its first expensiveness, to try using sweet (ll, nm Ic Ii *s the frying material of all south Europe. IVe leave out of the list "clarified fat," or dripping, because there is seldom enough of this to do the entire cooking with, even with a conscientious person In the kitchen who understands how to save and use it alt, as it should always be Insisted on. The two bestknown vegetable oils thst this country produces ar* cotton seed oil and peauut oil, both of which are understood to have been for years exported to Europe# coming back to us ta wleker-coverea flasks as Italian olive oil. Real olive oil from California-is too amati a product as vet to count much In the home market. The manufacturers of the new olive bulter—which ta not butter at all, but a clear greenish nil—have agreed to give us a home product, warranted pure. without tho ocean voyage; though, to conciliate our ridiculous American prejudices, do not label it cotton seed of peanut oil, the former of which It probably la. Any-boily who tries it will agree that It cooks as well as salad oil: and as all vegetable oils heat at lower tem. perature than the solid animal fat*. It does not bura aw ay or wast# aw iy as rapidly a* lard. It comes to convenient caus. with a mouthpiece. Ilks the kero. sone oil eau. so th it you eau pour off lust the desired quantity for use, and atter cooking, this eau be oare-fully strained and returned to the eau, except It has been used l r fish, when It must be put In a separate bottle and kept apart for this use. It has a slightly pungent smell when cooking, which Is said to be entirely removed by the use of a pinch of salt, but which Is no wor-e than other frying through the house. The egg plants, oysters, clam or corn fritters that are turned out of olive batter by a good cook have not a particle cf greasiness about them, nor any taste whatever of the medium in which they ace fried. _Olive Butter,
For Cookinsr Purposes# I* BETTER THAN LARD, FULLLY EQUAL TO BUTTER, AND COSTS MUCH LESS THAN EITHER. ONE POUND of Olive Butter will Ao the work of TWO Pounds of Lard, MANUFACTURED ONLY BY
