A when we put ourselves into right reset tons with god with truth and the Laws of the universe All things Are working with us and for us. Then having nothing we possess All James Freeman Clarke become hereditary. In Tinea sections the moral sense is utterly deadened by poverty and idleness and brigand age and crime thrive. Whenever the Opportunity offers or some american agent of the protected industries is looking for cheap labor these people Are a a assisted to America the italian government being very glad to unload an element that it finds difficult to Uke care of at Home. It is out of such elements that the mafia has been generated a class of murderers who Are utterly repudiated by All Italy save the outcast classes. The Case is similar with the hungarians poles and other senile and degraded elements of Europe whom we take without let or hindrance into the bosom of our american civilization. Being alien in language and sympathies they naturally Herd together Aad As was the Case in the countries which they left Many of them a till continue to regard civilization As their natural enemy. The problem of How we shall dispose of this rapidly growing element becomes More and More serious. Not a Little of this grave difficulty is chargeable to the protected industries which for years have had agents abroad offering these people inducements to come to this country and compete with american labor. They have even enlisted the United states consuls in their service in this method of protecting the american Workingman from Quot pauper Labory abroad. It is hardly to be wondered at that Hon. Henry Cabot Lodge and some of the More honorable and self respecting elements of the Republican party Are beginning to Call loudly for restricted immigration. The importation of such elements As have been poisoning the civil life of new Orleans is too heavy a penalty for american civilization to pay even for Protection. John p. Forster. Happiness made to order. The world has been shown Many ingenious contrivance for making happiness to order in the Way of so called co operative associations m Industry and Home building. On paper the More selfish elements of human nature Are eliminated but As grand old Robert Owen unfortunately found out they manage to steal in at every Nook and Corner As soon As the machine is set up in practice. But a cooperative town is now being built in Graceville n. J., on the Bellamy plan somewhat modified but warranted to be happiness proof. Under the Quot looking backward plan no land shark a looking to Corner lot speculation. Is to be tolerated and any Man purchasing a lot with speculative intent forfeits title to it. He must build upon it immediately but whether he would be permitted to sell Bouse and lot together at a or Oft is not stated. The House too. Must have some style about it even on a Back Street it must Cost at least $1500, and in the Back Bay Section not less than $3000. No restriction is put upon the Quality of a Man s clothes. It suffices that he wears pants but even the wearing of socks is not obligatory. Graceville is to be provided with an opera House a Public Hall and All proper arrangements that make for co operative happiness All to be run at Cost hut with no free list. When a Man Dies family will be Given a receipt in full for debts. The Basic purpose of this scheme is to get rid of speculation Quot profit mongering Competition taxation and debt. There being no prizes offered to greed the Leopard of speculative profits will gradually change spots the lion and the Lamb learn to lie Down together and All will bask in the Sunshine of peace and plenty. Yet the most successful co operative machine Ever yet invented was the Humble tub of Diogenes. In this historic Circle he first wrung the greed out of own nature and then contended that the solution of social problems must come from within rather than without. Looking backward upon the Humble tub of the old stoic there in some thing to be said for it however desirable a compulsory $8000 Home in the Back Bay District of Graceville May be. John g. Ingraham. Immigration and crime. The recent unfortunate occurrence in new Orleans has naturally turned the attention of thoughtful people to the dangers and responsibilities which attend our rapid and promiscuous absorption of All the Peoples of the Earth. Can we digest and assimilate the conglomerate mass that we Are taking into our civilization rapidly enough to conserve the general health of the Community the ancient greeks built up their civilization in mortal Tenor of foreigners. Everything that had not pure hellenic blood was counted Quot barbarian and debarred from full civil rights. Ancient Athens is held up As a pure Model of democracy on paper but in that great City of about 800,000 Only 28,000 were freemen. The rest were either slaves or were endowed with Only partial civil rights. The romans though they absorbed All manner of Peoples into the Empire made slaves of All suspicious people who came into the immediate Circle of their civilization and established a severe provincial Dominion Over the rest. This country opens wide the Sluice Gates of political Equality to All nations and tribes. Unfortunately Large numbers of those who flock in upon us Are people half disgusted with civilization at the Start. Those who have visited the italian cities Are familiar with the swarms of beggars and half Clad people to be seen everywhere. In some sections of Italy poverty is to Chrome that hunger has developed certain dearly defined diseases which have even Tity of Money but its Quality by which this fairy fabric of credit is sustained. But All vain theorizing of this sort at once gives Way before the practical results of the supplementary Silver coinage of july 1890. The Price of Silver in consequence of that measure advanced almost half Way to parity with Gold. With this Advance of Silver Bullion likewise advanced the Price of agricultural products wheat and Cotton especially. It takes now More Gold to buy Tho Silver to Coin into rupees with which to pay for India wheat for tile English Markot. Consequently less wheat will be bought in India and More in the United states and at a higher Price. So that it is the expanded use of Silver As Money in this country that raises the Price of Silver and with it the Price of wheat and Cotton. And it does not diminish their Export thereby increasing the total value of our exports and thus operating to increase the balance of Trade in our favor. Saying nothing of any Benefit to the producers of Silver themselves the incalculably larger gain to the whole country is Tho fact not to be overlooked. And there Are no credit panics to be feared from a substantial improvement like this. Daniel d. Gough. Taxation in Vermont. The a listing system of taxation is under serious discussion in the Legislatures of Maine and new York. Its purpose is Toyom Pel every person to furnish under oath annually to the assessors of town a full and Correct list of every dollars Worth of wealth he possesses All the debts that Aro due All the it debts he owes and in Short a Complete statement of private business affairs. If he has no property he is to say so under oath. These statements Are to be kept on file and always open to the inspection of the assessors and various other town officials. The Maine Law As proposed does not even provide that these officials shall not Tell their neighbors and their Church sewing society All about it. This system in its main features is already in operation in Vermont. The Burlington free press tells us How Nice it is. That Organ of Vermont opinion confesses that there is a Good Deal of perjury but still Between those who have a prejudice against per Juring themselves and those who Are afraid they will get found out if they swear falsely Quot a Large amount of our capital pays taxes which would escape under new Yorkus present a Good Deal of the capital too we imagine must Quot escape to new York or some other state where the Law does not grab at it with quite so much Energy. Vermont is the most Beautiful of All the new England states and has greater natural resources than any other unless it be Maine but it has the misfortune to be cursed with Many illiberal Laws. The consequence is that it is the most backward of All the new England states. It has gained nothing in population in the last to years and its deserted farms have become the talk of the world. If Vermont would Stop hounding her people and her capital by vexatious legislation she would not stand so badly in need of More people and More capital. Quality and Quantity in Money. It was Redward Atkinson who informed the congressional committee on coinage weights and measures that Quot credit is More effective than the Mere circulation of actual Money by Twenty to thirty or fifty tunes a and that a credit depends absolutely upon the Quality of Money and not upon the hence he reasons that a the effect of free coinage would be to restrict credit a because of the substitution of Quot a variable kind of Money subject to fluctuation for a True he believes Silver to be More variable than Gold because Gold has become the Standard of the commercial world Quot by natural All our foreign Trade is therefore based on Gold because it is the Safe Standard. He asserts that Gold was established As a Standard before the legislation of 1873. Yet while admitting that the overproduction of Gold has diminished its purchasing Power be refused absolutely to admit that a slow depreciation of Gold was the same thing As variation or fluctuation. The interesting Point of All which is As or. Atkinson so positively declares that it is the Quality of Money and not its Quantity that sustains credit. Money As it is universally recognized is presumed to be endowed with a Quality which guarantees its practicable stability of value. That being readily admitted what can possibly remain to determine its functions but its Quantity its volume the Quality element is for All practical Pur poses the merest affectation. If Quantity is to be eliminated from the problem then credits May As Well proceed without limit on a constantly diminishing Money volume. Or. Atkinson in fact was finally forced to admit that Tho volume of Money bears a lessening ratio to that of production and of Trade year by year. He compared it to the substitution of a Railroad for a Wagon. Quot As Long a said he a was you keep the Quality of your Coin so that the world believes in it so Long will you keep your credit throughout the world and not Quot it is credit we mainly depend upon and not the actual Money. By credit we direct move and apply capital. What you want is the actual capital an the basis of a True the Man who thus assumes to instruct not Only Congress but the country on the subject of Money set out As before stated with the assertion that a credit is More effective than the Mere circulation of actual Money by Twenty to thirty or fifty that is to say taking our own distributive share of the worlds total cur Tency to be $1,400,000,000, our credit entitles us to a business amounting to not less than 70 thousand million Del i ars according to the extreme limit Given if anything in known or unknown expert testimony can be adduced that on its face exceeds this in pure preposterous Ness it is yet to be laboriously fished out of the fathomless sea of untried possibilities this incomprehensible credit estimate is wholly worthy to be placed by the Side of the other assertion that it is not the Quan Spring sickness. Some people feel ill every Spring with As much regularity As they go to bed every night. Tile ancient joker who said he noticed that if he lived through March he generally lived through the rest of the year expressed the general belief in the unhealthy nature of this month. There is always a season every Spring when a great number of people feel too unwell to work but not ill enough to go to bed. They put up for a time at the half Way House Between health and sickness. This year the lassitude which comes with Spring seems to be aggravated to some extent by the grip a Boston visitor who wore out Bis Welcome once before. There Aro Many who think the grip is imaginary. But this does no to help matters at All for imaginary diseases Are always the hardest to endure they Are so very real to those who have them. Spring diseases of All kinds have also been called by Many laymen and by some physicians purely imaginary. Now the combination of two such imaginary diseases As the grip and Spring ailment is sure to cause intensely actual suffering. So during the next few weeks we May expect that the population As a whole at least the portion that makes itself heard will have a season of not feeling Well. The human Furnace like those that Are kept in cellars is Apt to get clogged by the Long continued combustion during the Winter. What is needed in both cases is plenty of pure air and a Chance for it to circulate. In the Spring people should stay in Tho open air All they can. Done to use the Sunshine As it was pickled Down in Coal thousands of Ages ago but go out and absorb it directly through the pores at first hand. Eat lightly exercise plentifully and keep out in the air properly dressed. Then Spring will be found one of the Healthiest of the seasons. Past into the living present the War will indeed be ended. It is said that is overwhelmed with congratulatory messages but has received none from Grover Beyland. Well or. Cleveland probably thought it was not Gen. Palmer who should be congratulated but the state of Illinois the democratic party the Senate and the country. _ prepare for cheap sugar on Aoril fool Day. It remains to be seen however whether the consumption of protectionist Taffy will be increased by the lessened Cost of raw Over $2,000,000 have already rolled into the Treasury As profit under the Silver coinage act of last summer. At this rate Uncle Sam can stand the expense of a Republican Congress once every eight years. The late German clerical Leader Herr Windthorst is said to have been a very homely Man but a great favorite among Beautiful women. As a German Beauty was Frank enough to say Quot a handsome woman is always flattered in the presence of a homely Man because it Calls attention to Ber own the appalling disaster which befell the ill fated Utopia coming close upon the new Orleans tragedy makes these Days sad ones for the sons and daughters of italia in this country. The papers Are still wondering Why or. Cleveland has not congratulated Gen. Palmer. We interrupt Tho discussion Long enough to suggest that perhaps he has congratulated . The new York Tribune announces that president Harrison will veto any repeal of the Mckinley Law which the next Congress May pass. All right so much the worse for or. Harrison in 92. We Hope none of the numerous plots against the Czar will succeed while Tom Reed is in Europe. If the Czar should be killed Tom would apply for the position and then would out Czar All the other czars of history. _ Bismarck talking to a correspondent of the new York world condemns the Mckinley act. And yet it is right in line with Bismarck a own policy. That is Only one of the Little inconsistencies of protectionism. However. Every protected country wants every other country to make Trade Edwin Booth is said to be so much affected by Lawrence barrettes death that he will not play again. This would indeed make the tragedian a death a double misfortune to the Public. Bones and phosphates. Is the title of the next essay in or. Andrew h. Wards important series of papers to help Farmers make farming pay. It will appear next week. Like others of or. Wards writings it is brimful of the Wisdom of experience expressed in a com Mon sense style. Wall paper Given away. A honest Man from Texas. Congressman William h. Martin who hails from the town of Athens in the state of Texas has been accused of being so unsophisticated that he blew out the Gas the first night he was in Washington and narrowly escaped asphyxiation. Or. Martin now demonstrates that he has More sound common sense than Many of the congressmen who laughed at Quot Fly congressmen a he graphically Calk them. Being a poor Man. He did not launch out into an extravagant Mode of life As most congressmen do when they go to Washington. He lived a Little better than when he was rounding up cattle on the Texas Prairie but still he declares he kept expenses inside of $50 a month. That is $2400 in the four years of service. salary for the four years amounts to $20,000, so that he is Able to carry Back to the state of the Loeffe Star the neat sum of $17,600, with its accumulations. Or. Martin As he himself modestly intimates has in More sense than the average congressman and More courage too. He was sensible enough and Brave enough not to pretend to a false affluence. Most congressmen spend More than their salary whether they can afford it or not. Or Martin afford it and he had too much rugged honesty to pretend that he could. And Why should he it is no part of a congressman a legitimate duty to make a show. Representatives Are elected to represent their constituents in Congress an j there is no reason other than false Pride Why they should change their Mode of life when they reach the capital. There is plenty of ostentation there in any event but jeffersonian simplicity is a scarcer article. The Hon. William h. Martin of Athens has supplied some of the latter.

In the representatives Hall of the Massachusetts state House there u suspended Over the speaker s desk a Large codfish. The reason for this u found in Bancroft a history vol. Hi., p. 178. In 1689 a controversy arose Between France and England concerning the cod fisheries on the new England coast. The French were est Ablahed at the Mouth of the Penobscot River and held All the country East of it. Baron Castine built a fort and trading House where is now the town of Castine me., and married the daughter of Moda Carondo an Indian chief of the powerful Penobscot tribe. Through thu Alliance All the Eastern indians became the friends and allies of the French. At this Massachusetts became alarmed. A they feared the French would fortify along the coast and islands and thus become sole mistress of fisheries for cod. Hence the strife in Massachusetts in which the popular mind was so deeply interested that the figure of a codfish was suspended in the representatives Hall and remains to thu Norfolk Suffolk Folk is an Anglo Saxon word meaning people or inhabitants. The saxons who settled in the North West of England were styled North Folk or Norfolk those who settled South of them were 8outhfolk or Suffolk. Essex Middlesex.
