A where men Henry George jr.,goes among the peasant Farmers. seen a country where the population is but one to a Square mile. Plenty of Rich untitled land but not an acre for the poor. Land which the almighty made for Sll of us. My time now sir. Is very Short hut i shall Yot a to things bettor than when i in 1872 Joseph Arch came along with his farm labourer so Union and caused an increase in wages. This increase was Only temporary but it set the labourers and Small Farmers to thinking. Mony of them like Lames Moore concluded that if a change were made in the land Laws so that All would be enabled to have free Access to tile tracts of land lying practically Idle about could live in Comfort Aud Rode others wanted to fight it out on Mil them they could live in Pendency. London May 16.�?Rural England is now i in All its glory. A few Days ago i went Down to Wiltshire one of the southwestern counties with or. William Saunders member of the London county Council for Walworth and Liberal candidate in the same District for parliament. Leaving the train at Devizes we drove Southeast ascending the famous Salisbury Plain a Fine plateau it Miles Square on which stand the rude monuments of Stone i henge ancient and mysterious even to the first Saxon invaders. There Are but few running streams Here but by making a Basin in the ground and pouring in a Little water a perpetually filled fresh Pool for Stock is provided As the Clouds settling Over the Plain at night Are condensed by the a ten and constantly add to it. As we drove along the splendid Road leading to the town of Salisbury the absence of signs of farming was most noticeable. On this important Highway of an important Shire in Quot Over populated England a one Felt a loneliness More suggestive of the newer parts of our Western country and i indeed i Learned that the population in this part of the country including the villages is Only a fraction Over one to the Square a mile. The soil is Rich enough and even with inferior tools and methods of cultivation once supported a Large population but is now Given up to sheep and game. Much More obtrusive than farmhouses were the twelve by six sheep Cabins supported on Quot wheels sons to be pulled from Field to Field or the tangled thickets where lodged Hare and pheasant and snipe and occasionally a Fox. In these game preserves the Squires of the country found and their ladies frequently gather Tad mount in the fall to a blood the hounds. A Torf is started from the Brush or ii foxes to scarce one is loosed from Captivity. Off then dash the hounds and off dash Squires Aud ladies and attendants. Helter shelter they go through Fields Over Hedges and fences tip Steep embankments and Down Sharp Leo Levities in mad Hight till perhaps they suddenly bring up hounds Squires Lames and attendants around a Hole into exp of the Squires Ann. I hounds ready catches i with great agility strength and skin p or. Rex out seizes him by the Back of the lung and fling the wit. Ste word to Nave the d of the Tail and kill pull neck to prevent i High into the air. Down comes the n brute into the midst of the furious do Lulu _. _ of who quickly tear him to pieces. Thus the hounds Are Quot blooded a and Squires ladies and attendants remounting return in High Ood spirits Over their Quot amazingly enjoyable we stopped at a Small Hamlet called mar Ket Lavington. Just off Salisbury Plain and i listened to or. Saunders talk whose social conditions Are those More or is of the whole of Rural England. Market Lavington contains 2000 souls. It. Iloma with people lose land. Has Bat one policeman whose chief oco Upa a Tion seems to be to carry out the mandates of the loud of the Manor indeed there is nothing else for Man to do for the people Are most religious and Law abiding and besides supporting several churches Amish a relatively important Branch to Tho salvation army. One Man owns nearly All the land within the immediate limits of the Village Aud a Tow others own the land around it. So that All the people save these few Are renters. But where a Largo renter say a sheep Raiser occupying 600 or 1000 acres nays a the rate of 16, to or 5 shillings.,or even less an acre the Small cultivator of 6 or to acres of precisely the same kind of land pays �2, �3, and even �4 an acre the deliberate Pur i a it. Nee been deemed undesirable neighbors by the Rich. Yet this land is Wel adapted to the Small cultivator. This is shown by the great i Quantity of fruit raised by or Saunders a of fun Mill Fiji great nacre own brother or. Samuel Saunders from to i acres Oftle a poorest land for Miles around. Many authorities calculate that even five acres would be enough to ably a far More a family of five. As Bereave the occur with rent so with taxes for taxes levied. Not on the owner but on and Tho Quot rates a or local taxes and the tithe for the support of the established Church fall on. Land not according to its value but according to its rent so that the Small Farmer who pays �3 or �4 rent per acre must pay a great Deal More relatively than the sheep Raiser whose rent is but a few shillings an acre. The usual wages of farm labourers in Wiltshire is to shillings $2.50 a week. This divided among a family of five would Only allow four Pence eight cents a Day for each member. What kind of living this affords May be inferred from the fact that the poor Law guardians who have never been charged with extravagance cannot keep those dependent upon 1 their Charity in conditions of health and decency for less than an average of six Pence a Day each. At this rate the support of rive persons for a week woul it amount to 17 a shillings seven and Ahab if shillings More than Tho average weekly earnings of the farm labourers Iii Wiltshire. Most of these labourers have each however a Quarter or half acre lot from which they Ara supposed to produce enough to help out their scant wages. But they can Only do this when they Are out of other employment since working hours Are from 7 to 5 in Winter and from 5 to 7 in summer. Not Only Are his wages Low and his rent High but the farm labourer is hedged about by All manner of restrictions and penalties. The pieces of common land once attached to every Village in England have now almost All disappeared for the most part a in Market Lav Propri ated by the powerful Langton the children have nowhere save in the Public Highway to play. Thoy May not run m the Green Fields and pick the wild Flowers. Sheep stealing not Many years ago was a capital offence and even now the Law is severe upon poachers. A Man caught unlawfully with game even though it May have done his crops Pauch injury is heavily fined and then if not summarily evicted May be at any rate subjected to a lingering persecution. One Case i came upon was that of a Man of known integrity Aud Industry who was seized and Tinea to shillings for merely walking under the Shade of Trees close to a Field where his sheep were grazing. The Trees were part of a wooden tract which was used As a cover for pheasants but there was not Fence hedge or anything else to separate the two proper ties. Jasmine cottage was the name of one of the peasant Homes we visited a Small tiled House fronted by a pretty Little Garden and As neat within As a new England housewife a. James Moore was the occupant and though feeble with age he spoke with Inch clearness of thought. A you see my wife and me sir Cornin to the end a said the old Man. Quot it has been a Long struggle from the first. Even when i were a boy we did have so Little to Tat of a morning and were that hungry that a we did to up Salisbury Down we did eat piece by piece the bit of dread that we did 1 carry in our pouches to keep us through the a. One of the boys he were that hungry a one o e did take peas out in the pigs Trow owie caught in at it and Didner a unmerciful Owle caught in at it and t he beaten Quot if i could have had a bit of land when of age i could have earned an looking could How my wife and i lived that to no one living. At a too infirm to walk it to Ign Jot relate to you could not Tell last we were Gettin work and poor old Donk he were wont out but i kept out at it till i were hardly Able to get indoors. I were obliged to give up at last and to Call on tile guardians for help. I were always free of trunking and some things did raise up in my mind a very revolutionary Sparer. I did seem to want some Strong Man to Rise up and put Down persons who were withholding the the made More Bountiful. Where does this Long struggle for subsistence end one of James Moore a neighbors answered Quot there is no use mincing matters a said he Quot we be got Togo to the work House in the and this is the condition of things All Over Rural England. Is it any wonder then that each recurring census reveals a greater and More startling thinning out of the agn Cul Tural districts with wages at the Brink of starvation and the Prospect of the work House for old age. Tho Young and energetic strike out for Tho towns where at least whatever May be t he other conditions there Are the strongly attractive elements of excitement and change. Nor Are they As a class among those who swell the ranks of the unemployed in Tho towns. Messes.

They push others out of it. And what that Means is shown by the following extract from a letter handed Tome by a Well known London editor stud written by a Man 80 years of age working in a charitable who had formerly fallen through drink but bad Long Sinceob-8erved Good habits i am unable to find any employment whatever and thus am no better off than i Wall months ago.

Washington,.-May 31.�?senator Colquitt of Georgia who has been in Newyork for three weeks is in Washington on his War Home. has been in conference with Quot new York politicians regarding the approaching Campaign in that stat Sandhas to discuss measures rather than men. Quot you see a said the senator Quot Litho democrats in new York make the Campaign a Quot Hill and Cleveland fight it will cause foe tonal differences and dissensions and May make new York a doubtful state. It May even defeat us there and thus put both Hill and Cleveland out of the race. My advice would lie to the party to stand together next fall and then after we have carried the state let gov. Hill and or. A Cleveland each Endeavor to secure the delegates to the nominating convention. To. Turn Tho election next fall into a personal struggle would be hazardous.

Of growing Renom unating or. Cleveland and i do not believe the South will advocate his candidacy when the convention is held. The antipathy to him is duo to his views on the Silver question. I believe that the next democratic platform will contain a Strong free Silver Plank and that we will win on such a platform. Without it i believe we will court what names Are suggested in for the nomination a the sentiment of the people has hardly reached the Point of discussing names. We want however a Good clean candidate and a platform that will advocate the Relief of the people from the burdens of heavy taxation and the evils of constricted currency. I think that the democrats Etui easily adopt such a platform while it will be difficult for the republicans to agree to such Broad the South party figure in the presidential Campaign a a it will not in the South. The third party men there Are democrats and if the democratic platform is framed in the interests of the people As it ought to be we will not lose a an adventurous explorer.

The protest against this modern system a the protest against another system More than too years ago has come from the Good old town of Danvers in Essex county.

Edward Bellamy and Rev. A. Hinckley of Northampton. Bay state nationalists. The National committee of the Peoples party for Massachusetts make a Public statement. The National committee for Massachusetts of the newly formed Peoples party have prepared an address to the people of Massachusetts from which the following extracts Are taken As one of the results of a National conference of representative of land labor financial and political Reform associations held in Cincinnati May 18. It was decided that the reforms agitated should constitute an Issue in the presidential Campaign of 1892 and preparatory thereto Tho Peoples arty of the United states was there formed and a National committee selected to organize each state. In Massachusetts Tho Peoples party by organizing can at least exert a qualifying influence in the line of its work upon the purity of motive actuating other parties in their nominations or in the legislation they favor. Tile platform adopted at Cincinnati has already been widely published. To some the demands therein formulated May appear Radical though upon reflection Tho Basic principles would tie regarded As eminently Wise upon which to found Reform legislation in the particulars suggested. Let it to remembered that this platform is provisional Only and subject to modification by additions or eliminations at the next conference at Washington d. C., february 1802, and at the nominating convention in Jane of that year. In the meantime it is essential that those who feel dissatisfied with Tho controlling influences and tendencies of the old parties should Combine in an attempt to secure something better. Those who Are in this line of thought should act together and Endeavor to grow into Unity by Mutual concessions for the common Good. Whatever May he the expression for expected legislation the animating influence that founds the Peoples party is the desire to place the government in the hands of the people for the it embodies the opinion that both of the old parties Are now controlled by organized capital and that National legislation in its interest at its dictation Ana sometimes by its Purchase is responsible largely for an existing conditions a condition where failures Are common a condition where the masses of society although surrounded with an abundance of the necessaries of life.

More rain has fallen in fact in Many sections the amount is up to the average. This has served to relieve crops kinds from the drought which has prevailed for several weeks. As a Rule Tho soil is now in excellent condition for cultivation. The season is vet a week to a fortnight late but a few Days of warm Sunshine will soon Advance it to the average. Tho temperature for the past. Seven Days has been fur the most part below the average. Tim nights and mornings have been remarkably Cool.

I bad not quite expected to find them living in Snow houses but i had a misty idea that an Eskimo was a Little Black Indian whose chief Delight among the things brought from a civilized country was a tallow Candle. The Staple food is Seal Moat and blubber. Next to that is the Little fish taken in the fiord and dried for Winter use known to them As the agma that and to Tho Learned As Salmo Villous. A favorite Way of eating the dried agma that is to take it by the Tail poke it into the oily blubber for a while and then Chew it Down. Awful Isnit it itis almost As bad As eating sardines. There is a Deal in a name. Blubber is disgusting Oil if for use on a salad is delicious and indispensable. I have eaten Seal Oil and found it very unexpectedly Good. I had supposed it would have a flavor of fish Oil. There is no such flavor about it. It is equal to the Best extract of Cotton seed that Quality sold As Olive Oil in All american groceries. Agma that and blubber under a French Label would be esteemed a luxury in York As in Tarsuk. For the rest the eskimos Trade Soal Oil and skins to their gov a Throe kinds of hard tack for Coffee sugar land Tea.
