It is amusing, if nothing elso, to ob
serve the posltiocB taken by som of
our republionn contemporaries in their
endeavors to explain toe present pro-t
perous oondition of the nation. The
fact that all their gloomy predictions
of idnr years ago ot the dire calamities
that would surely fall upon tho whole
people nad blast the business interests
of the oouutry should a democratic
President be elected, have most signally
failed, wo really believe has been a bit
ter disappointment to them. They
would rather tho country should suffer
Irom financial iianio than that a demo
oratio administration' should havo tho
credit of restoring tho nation to an era
ot almost unprecedented prosperity.
No such a business boom was known
during tho last twelve years of repub
lican administration, a ha como npon
us in the third year nf Graver Cleve
land's presidency. Illustrative of this
we dip the following from the Phila
delphia Press :
"Ooean freights began to rise about
four months ago, principally upon the
short distance voyages about Great
Britain. English ports which at the
opening of tho year bad 100 or 200
steamers lying idle were suddenly
emptied, and all the tonnage in exist
ence found employment. The ship
yards have been so overtaxed by tho
demand for new steamers that ship-
- builders aro charging 25 per cent moro
for new vessels than three months neo.
Activity in much the same lino has
added enormously to rolling stock in
the United States, 14,000 freight cars
having been built in 1887, and the
Pennsylvania Railroad having added
to its cars through a large pait of the
year at the rate of one an himr. This
great increase in the freight of the
worhl, on laml ai d sea, is a mark quite
as much of enlarg- d demand a of
growing production, and it suggests
the possibility that the causes whieh
have so long been reduoing prices are
Hearing their end.''
And yet the Pre) is one of the
papers that says that this condition nf
things in own g entirely to tho confj
dence established by thn republican
, party, and lhat the democracy has not
(land to do anything to overthrow it.
Daring twenty-five years of misrnle the
repnblioan party failed to bring about
prosperity to anything but highly pro
tected monopolies, and yet they have
the cheek to claim all thn credit for thr
condition of things after three years of
democratic rule; Such claimB as. this
ought not to he made in the expecta
tion that inttbgeut people will, believe
from our Regular Correspondent.)
Washington. D. C, Jan. 9, 1888.
,Tisli(.g the tail of the British
Lieu, had long been a favorite and per
fectly burmltss pat-lime of Ameriean
slatetmen in the 1 gislativo halls of the
nation. And it wtiuld siera that this
mighty animal is not to esoape his per
iodical torture 'durine the present pes
sion of Congress. The Lion might do
well to heed the admonition of tbe pio-turei-que'
Ingalls, who Bays ''if the
British L.ion does not wart his tail
twisted, he must keep it between his
tegs.'' The Tall Syaamore of the Wo
bash, ludiana's must popular son, has
expressed tbe same opinion also,
JUr.-.Josepn Uhamberlain, tbe But
ish Fisheries Commissioner, who by
virtue of his being a member of Parli.
ament, has tbe privelege of the flnorof
Congress, according to custom, is the
disturbing cause at present. The din.
tioguished Englishman held a sort of
reception In tbe Senate while Mr.
Voorheeswas makiug bis tariff speech
in replj to Mr. Sherman's attack upon
tbe President's message. The conver
sation was pitched in such bigb tones
that Senatorial diunity was Beriouidy
offended, and tbe President of the Sen
ate fell called upon to silence tbe dis
tarbance with his gavel. As for Mr.
Chamberlain, he is probably more
einued againt than sinning. Tho
group of Republican senators who
gathered about him on this occasion
were tbe real offenders, for they
should have bad the grace to conduct
their guest to one of the adj iuent
cloak rooms. The Democratic Sena
tors were intently listening to the able
effort of-Mr. Voorbees in refutation of
Mr. Shermans argument, and they
justly comphiinoil that tuough they
paid undivided attention to the re
inarkB of tho Ohio Senator, when it
came the turn of Mr, Voorbees, tbe
attention of the It-publicans was al
most entirely withdrawn irom the Or
ator and the discussion. This was a
grave breech of decorum on the part
of those whoi-e duty it wa-i to obserte
it, The matter hai not yet been pub
licly alludtd to in tbe Senate, though
it may be in the near future.
One ot the most important bills yet
introduced in the Senate is that offered
by Senator Hoar fur a world's fair at
Washington in 1892. In connection
with this it is proposed to establish in
this oily permanent exposition of
tho arts, industries and resources of
Morth, South and Ctntral America,
the United States, as a muter of
course, to lake the lead. If carried out
on the scale projected, this scheme will
rival, if not surpass, the glorious ricord
ot our great Centennial.
speaker uantsles committees are
probably moro capable and satisfac
tory to tho public, if not to those as
signed, than if the work had been by
any other, lor lit a matur ot this kind
experience is everything on the part
ot the presiding olucer. The Uoust
is now thoroughly organized for bus!
ness, and lb? present week will be
season of muoh interest and activity
as the committees aro hard at work
sbapiug tho course of legivlation. The
result of their deliberations will appear
During the past week tho Commit
Ice on Elections had under cocsldira
tiou tho contestod election caso of
Thohe against Carlisle, and a numb
of affidavits have been filed by the
contestant and so vera! allegations pre
sented by the counsel Tbe bearing
of tbe case has been postponed till the
list of this w!k, ia order that the
Speaker may havo an opportunity of
defcuding the n1idity of his title,
which hii desires to do. Mr. Thobo'a
counsel is attempting to make his
client play the role of tho persecuted
workingman, in his vain effort to make
a plausible caso.
A striking and singular instanco of
Republican official irregularity acd
incompetency has just como to light
hero in tho capital. M iro than nine
teen ycr a co Gen. J. S. Cro-jker was
appointed Warden of tho District Jail,
for a term of four years, under a bond
of $5,000 1 and although lie has never
boen re-appointed, nor given a new
hond, the lueky Joncral still swings to
his ofllco. "Turn tho rascals out."
Tho indications are that in a day or
two the Prcsidont will send to the
Senate two important nominations
Mr. Stoukslnger, who is Asssistant
Commissioner of the Land Office, to
bo Cotnmi'sinner of the Laud Oflioe,
nud Goueral E. A. Bogg, ex-Congress
man from Wisconsin, to be Minister
to Mo lien. It was Gen. Bogg who
raado thn memorable, epceoh in the
Chioago Convention, landing Grover'
Cleveland: "Wo all love him for tho
enemies which ho has made." The
Wisconsin statesman hns had a distin
gniehed career, both in war and in
peace, and it is known that tho Presi
dent is desitious of honoring him.
Bridging: the English OhanneL
A railway communication between
Franco and England'si ems at last to
be on the eve of realization. Admiral
Clone, ex-Minislcr of Marine, has the
plans in charge and thus describes the
gigautio project: '
"A solid viaduct built up on stout
piers from tho bed of the sea, with a
masivo iron superstructure, will be
erected. This will start from Amble
teuse. whiob has the advantage of a
small rotdstead on the French coast.
Tbo bridge: is to form ouo continuous
way and to extend ia a northerly di
rection as far as Folkestone. Its
longth will be thirty-five kilometres.
A slight bend wilt occur at two points,
where reefs afford splendid opportuni
ties for abutments and cantilevers.
These reofs are in mid-channel and in
dicated on n'tval maps a the rocks of
Colbart and Varne.
"We do not take tbo shortest, but
tho best and shallowest route. Tbe
sea depths vary between fifty and
twelve metres, tbo deepest water being
on the French side of the channel.
Tbe piers aro to bo built of hard con
crete and masonry, and to measure
each about fifty atetree ioug by thirty
metres wide; they are to rise ten met
res above tho waves, and to support
lofty pier towers on whoso iron frame
work the superstructure will rest,
"The interval betweon two piers will
be from 500 to GOO metrcB, an venor
mous span, since the superincumbent
weight of Lhe iron work would amount
at least to twenty-five thousand tons
"Instead of having recourse to the
usual Rjatem of projecting or under
girdets, and instead of gradually con
structing from the pier outwards one
half of tbe span until it meets the other
midway, where both halves are con
joined, the whole span ot ironwork
will be manufactured on shore. This
section of the superstructure will then
bo transported in fair weather on four
elevated air-tight pontoon cases, each
of which is able lo support a weight of
10 ,000 toiiH, and when brought into
position, that is, when plaucd on a
parallel lino with tbo stono piers
(whereon some kind of elastic body
ha been placd to deaden the shook
and prevent injury to the masonry),
water is allowed to float into the pon
toon cases, which, on slowly sinking,
bring tho superstructure at both ex
tremities on a line level with the flat
surface ot the piers. The whole mass
is then gradually raised as tho iron
pier towers are built up und r it.
"The bridge, will be thiitv metres
Wide, and have four railway lines, be-
sides a roa-l for foot pasiei.gers, ve-
hides, and inspectors. BoW ior ,
guards and shunting lines will be es- j
tablished at stated distances. Eton
pier will b provided with a powerful
r. . .. . r . . - .
electrio light, besides sirens and alarm-
bells for fogay weather.
"Tho superstructure on the pier tow
ers will, of course, rise to a height
umciont to allow the tallest shins to
ride under it at ease Bar, between
fifty and sixty metres. Buoys like
thoso used in tbe Suez Canal will be
placed at regular points to show the
way at night to approaching ships, so
that these may sail through the broad
arches without danger of colliding
with the piers.
"A company has" been formed to
carry out tho giant enterprise, under
tho name of 'Tho Cnannet Bridge
nnd Railway Company, Limited.' An t
lie engiceer nnd contractor. 61.
Heraeut, who has done extraordinry
engineering teats already at Suez,
Antwerp and elsewhere, and who eu
enjoys a world wido reputation, is to
construct the French portion of tho
stone piers to a height of ti n metres
abovo tho sea level, while the ironwork
of tho towers and superstructure de
olves on tho famom Creuzot Works.
These gentlemen will be seconded by
Messrs. I'owler & Baker, the well
known L ndon firm. The plars and
sections of the masonry aro now ready,
wuiie mo ureuzoi establishment is busy
on the plans and sections whiob relate

Report of Superintendent of Pnblio Inilruo

Instruction has made his report for the
year ending June 0, 1887. We glean
tho following from itt
Tho general ndvanco of tho schools
during tho past yiar has bcon verj

tricts havo been formed, making the

number 115. Tho inoreaso in numbtr
of teachers has been 510 1 male
teachers 840, and female 170, making
tho present total 23,822. There has
been a slight increat-o in tho average
monthly salary of male teachers, and
a small decreaso in tho average
monthly salary of femalo tcsohor
Tbo average monthly salary of male
teachers is $38 53, and of female
teachers $20 8G. Tbe length ot school
term is steadily advancing.
reckkt legislation;
Tho increased appropriation of fivi
hundred thousand dollars ($500,000) to
our public chools ought to give great
encouragement to onr educational
work, removing the necessity of too
severe local taxation. In our centres
of advanced culture, it is true, schools
will be vigorously carried forward at
any cost. Here tho pnblio sentiment
Is snoh as to enforco a proper attention
to Ihe young. But in the many sec
tions of the Commonwealth where the
benefits of intellectual discipline are
not so fully recognized, schools will
not advance if made to depend too
largely upon local taxation. Here the
absence of culture shows itself in the
want of interest in tbo some. In onr
judgment, therefore, the increased ap
prnpriation will greatly aid the depart
ment in bringing tho schools, especially
of such sections, up to a higher stand
ard of efficiency. There must bo cate
on every hand, that the increased fund
be rightly applied. It is for tho good
of the schools. It must not be used
by the townships or sohool districts n
such way as to lessen their own vig
orous support of the school'.
The pnrpoBC of all State appropria
tion to tho schools is to help tho chil
dren of the Commonwealth, that they
all may havo every opportunity of
securing that culturei without which
ihe possibilities of their personal being
cannot bo realized. Any movement,
therefore, upon the part of directors
to weaken the autonomy of their
districts by making tbcm dependent
upon the State appropriation, or to
lesson, in any way, their sf nse of the
necessity of vigorous self supporting
work, violate-i the very spirit and
intent of the act of appropriation.
Let the increased fund be used in
granting better salarifs to teacher
underpaid, in securing better teachers
by a general advances of salaries, in
lengthening the school term, and in
increasing apparatus and libraries.
Wo aro gratified that at last the
minimum school term has been ex
tended to six months. Tbo teaobers
of the State have been urging this
for years. By tbo act of May 8", 1854.
tho minimum term was fixed at four
months, and so it continued for
eighteen years. By aot of April 0.
1872, it was extended to five months,
and so continued until this year. It
is surprising that during all this time
about -eight hundred townships or
sohool districts, embracing nearly six
thousand scb 'ols, failed to inoreaso
the term a single day.
It must not bo supposed for a mo
ment that the Legislataro, in fixing
the minimum term now at six months,
intended to favor so short a teim, or
to establish it as a proper standard.
The aim of the law is to lengthen

guard again t weakening the beuifits
-of this law to teachers as well as to
children. Directors should not make
teachers bear the burden of this effort
to advance, by lowering their mcnthly
salaries so ai to make the cost the
same es before. Any condnct of this
kind will rapidly shcw i's evil effects

mum six months, not the bo interfered

or the week of institute or any other
contingency. The ins'itotes now stand
upon their own merit. Proper remun
eration is given to teachers for their
attendance upon them, carofully
guarded by official rporls sent to tho
vat ions boards; and all schools are
cloned during the time of institute,

V. 23. Tho effect of this feeding tho 6.000
was so groat that tbe people determined to
take him by force and make him their king.
Could not ho, who could do such mighty
works, off tbe Roman yoke and restore
the power and splendor of David's throne!
And the dlsclplos probably shared thepeoplo's
enthusiasm and entered Into their design. It

was determined on. 'Not from their hands
would he accept his kingdom. Not under
present surroundings would he reign. Ills
"kingdom was not of this world." "He con
strained them" to depart as bo said I. e., to
go to the other side ot the lako "before him"
calling along the coast, or in order to take
htm up, after he -bad sent the multitude
away. This dono, ho went up Into a moun
tain alone to pray.
Jesus alone on tho mountain top in prayer.
What a eight to awe tbe spirit, and to
touch the heart. And wheroforo was he
there! TVero there not two reasons! Did he
not yearn, nmld the noise and tumult of tho
worldly minded multitude, for the calmness
and quiet of communion with the father!
Was not Us humanity llko our own, In all
things, "yet without sinf Did he not more
in tbo presence of what might bo danger,
calm, and steady, and true, because he met it
in perfect accord with the father's will!
And only In that is there safety always, be
cause only in that Is there perfect truth. He
would have us do as he did flee from the
danger, and strengthen ourselves by com
munion with God.
V. What a striking contrast do these
verses present. Jesus alone on tho mountain
in prayer; the disciples in midnight darkness
and storm. Manifestly, the storm had burst
upon them suddenly, and driven them out of
their courso, for they were now "in tho midst
of the sea" instead of sailing quietly along
the coast. And yet they were exactly In the
position which He intended them to occupy.
He saw it all before they sailed. This sudden
outburst of supposed danger real onough
but for his knowledge and intention about
it this darkness, this howling wind, thesa
boisterous waves, and his own bodily nbsenco
from them, all entered into his plan, and oven
meant to point tho Josson be intended them
to learn.
V. 25. This verse tells us Jesus had not for
gotten his disciples. The midnight darkness
had not shut them from his sight. "He saw
them toiling in rowing," and his heart
yearned toward them In their utter helpless
ness. And just when their dangor seemed
greatest, and the darkness deepest, "In the
fourth watch of the night," he moved in
their behalf. But he is on the mountain and
they "in the midst of the boo." How shall be
reach them! Thwe is no difficulty here. Is
it not written, that "all things servo theeT'
And so the sea bows down its waves before
him and spreads them for a path for him to
walk on. And so he came to them "walking
on the sea" teaching them and us that no
creature of his hand can come in between
htm and his people's need. It is In vain for
us to speculate on how this was done. We do
not know tbe how of any process by which
God works in nature.
V. 20-27. How intensely human the poor
disciples were. How exactly like ourselves.
For with all our boasted attainments in
science and philosophy, we should have been
as frightened as they. We may call it supersti
tion or whatever else we choose. No one
thinks of accounting for something that is by
referring it to an agency which he believes is
not At onco Jesus soothes their fears. He
bids them bo of good cheer, and speaks tba
good words which have rung through the
ages In every storm and brought the sweet
ness of peace, wherever faith has hoard them :
"It Is I. Be not afraid."
V. S3. No attestation could have been
more fitting than this: "Thou art the Son of
God." None so perfectly justified by all the
facts of the case. The feeding of the
5,000, the walking on tho sea, tho ceasing
of tbe wind as be entered into the ship, and
Immediate arrival of the vessel at land,
John vl, 21. What else could these things
mean to those who saw them!
V. 33-30. This land of Qennesaret was on
the western side of the lake. And the inci
dent here related is one of great simplicity
and beauty, and brings, very distinctly, throe
lines of thought L c. :
1. Tho men of the place came to learn who
Jesus was.
3. Learning this they went out and brought
to him all tbe sick in the country round
about; and
3. All who touched him were made per
fectly whole. What volumes of truth am
condensed in these linesl
1, The meaning and tbe power of faith. It
we ask what Is faith! the answer will be, lt
is belief. And while this Is certainly true, it
is not all the truth. Does not the present
lesson show this! Does not the eleventh
chapter of Hebrew show it! Faith connects
the soul with God, and so becomes a factor In
tho kingdom of God, as all these cases show.
As we stand before Jesus on the cross, faith
becomes tho medium through which bis
saving power flows into our souls. It is all
"of grace through faith." And in all the
acts of the Christian lifo, through which this
same power manifests Itself, faith Is the
medium through which it acts. It holds up
every sinking l'etor, and makes us victors in
tho "good fight," and winners in the hcavonly
2. Our most subtle tempatlons may of ten
times bo found in teeming zeal for tho cause
ot Christ, just as those people seemed to be
zealous for Jesus when they sought to make,
him King. He saw it was a snare, and fled
from It. Is there a certain test and guide
for us! Yen. Under all circumstances tbe
revealed will of God will guide us in the only
way we can nafely tread.

The Ohinoeo Disaster.
II. ,)!
TION oujseo nr tiik iioano no's
London, Jan. 6. Tho special corres
pondent of the Standard gives to day
a very graphic picture of tho tremen
dous hns of llfo in China from tho
over'low of tho river Iloung Ho nnd
tho treramdous famine now threatened.
Ho sajs about one sixth of tho entire
area of "tho Garden of China," as
Honan is styled, is now converted into
a vast lake, with hero and there a
pagoda top or tho gable of somo high
wall rising over the increasing water
to mark tho sites of what were a short
timo ago prosperous cities of many
thousand inhabitants. The rest of tho
country is overrun with wi etched refu
gees who were fortunite enough to
esoape with their lives, though with
naught else. In hundreds of instances,
men who threo short moons ago were
men of wealth, to-day sit gazing on
the inland sea, stunned, hungry, stupid
and df jected, without a rag lo wear or
a morrul of food to eat.
Tho it undatinns commenced at a
little distance from Kaifung Fu, otio
of the largest cities of lhe province,
and in ono instanco somo four miles of
solid embankment of stones, brick,
Band and clay wore swept away with
innumerable moles and fascines. In
tho districts of Ching Chow and Chen
Cbow uo less than threo thousand laigo
villages are staled to have been engulf
ed in a very few moments and scarcely
any of their ill-fated people had time
to savo themselves, as the breech oc
curred in tho night time. The extent
of the disaster will bo belter under
stood when I say that an extent of
country much larger than tho principal
ity of Wales and much moro thickly
populated is now a sea and all the in
habitants either drowned or fled. Tho
people so terribly visited can uot num
ber far short of the wholo population
of Ireland, an tbe province includes
about 25,000,000, with area of 05,
000,000 sqnaio miles, and tho waters
of tho river now cover between f,000
and 10,000 t-quare mitei. Accounts
daily publish ril in the naiivn and for
eign papers and in the Fckin Gazette
reveal the most horrible sufferings of
tbe survivors, who are perishing of
I am told that in hundreds of in
stances, when tho waters rushed ioto
tho cities, sweeping walls, houses and
everything before ihoin, people refused
to stir and met their deaths with that
wonderful indifference whioh charnct
rizes tho Chinese iu somo cases, for
tho Celestial is n( thing if uot a fatalist
of the most pronounced and nnioason
ing type. According to the best and
moat trustworthy auhorities which I
have b- en able to consult, the loss ol
life will not bf numbered by thong
ands, or tens of thousands but literal!)
hy hundreds of thousands, whilo the
starving people mut-t amount to many
millions, who aro utterly beggared, and
depending for subsistence upon the
charity of others. The Emperor has
already contributed T00,000 taels, or
about $128,000, out of the privy purse,
besides ordering 2,000,000 taels, or
$2,50,000, out of the imperial Treas
ury towards the relief of tVo sufferers.
Spies' Brut
Life size plaster of paris busts of
Augnst Spies are beinrr largely pnr
cbaced by the sympathizers with the
Ohioago Anarchists. After tho bodies
of the men bad been removed from tbe
jail to their former homes an unknown
sculptor tcok plfster impression of
Iheir faces. The bnst is a startling
eproduclion of the appearance of-tbe
Anarcbiht as he lay in his ct.flin, the
marks of the noose upon tbe neck be
ing especially plain.
Intending purchasers of Pond's
Extract cannot tako too much pro
caution to prevent substitution. Somo
druggists, trading on the popularity of
tho great Family Remedy, nttompt to
palm off other preparations, unscru
pulously asserting them to bo "tho
sarnons" or "equal to" Pond's Ex
tract, indifferent to the deceit prac
ticed upon and disappointment there
by caused to tho purchaser, so long
as larger profits accrue to themselves.
Always insist on having Pond's Ex
tract. Take no other.
