Conservative Frenchmen are basing all
their hopes of a stable government on
President Carnot's good sense. They dare
say nothing, for Boulanger's popularity
just now is too great throughout France.
Precise and almost humorous orders as to
court mourning for the death of Prince
Rudolf have been issued. The Queen's
wedding'anniversary, approaching, 'will be
the usual solemn, cheerless affair. Ruben-

comments on the length of each other's hair
TBY CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
London, February 2. The condition of
things in France remains practically what
it was on Sunday night, when Boulanger
was declared elected. The Cabinet have
shown their determination to stand as long
as Paris does not turn them out by force
and they have a majority, however small,
in the Chamber of Deputies to support them.
The Boulungists are quiet and Boulanger is
invisible and wisely says very little, wait
ing to see if popular folly will do anything
more for him.
The only hope of moderate, sensible
Frenchmen is now in President Carnot, who
alone among those in power, has done noth
ing to excite the hostilities of the Boulang
ists. He is urged to appeal to the good
sense of the country, and see what he can do
to keep Frenchmen from risking their fate
on a man of whose real intentions or ability
they know nothing. That such an appeal
would have much effect, however, is not
"Whoever speaks against Boulanger in
Paris just now creates unpopularity, and
the only thing to do is to wait and see what
will happen. In the meantime, any one in
clined to offer reasonable odds would have
no difficulty in finding a man willing to bet
that, if anybody opens the exhibition of '89,
it will be Boulanger.

Editor Stead's Great Opportunity to Fay
tBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.!
London, February 2. It is amusing to
note how fiercely the British mind continues
to theorize over the authorship of the anti
Bismarckian article in the Contemporary
Review. That article, as I telegraphed you
some time ago, was written by Mr. Stead,
the editor of the Pall Mall Gazette, the
alleged news which it contained being
supplied partly by himself and partly by
more distinguished personages,but that fact
has not yet got back here, the Pall Mall
Gazette takes the lead in booming the mys
tery which surrounds the article, and which
principally lends value to the work of its
editor. It prints interviews with the editor
of the Contemporary Relieve, who solemnly
refuse to divulsre Stead's same, and repro
duces columns of extracts from other papers,
containing various theories as to the paper's

Almost Humorous Minuteness of the Fro.

IHY CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
London, February 2. The death of the
Crown Prince of Austria has sent the court
into monrning, but luckily for the young
women who are getting ready to go to the
first drawingroom, the mourning will be
brief, and will terminate on the 14th, so
that they will be able to appear in the
gowns which they have meaitatcd and
planned for long months back.
The orders as to how the court shall
mourn are precise almost to a humorous ex
tent. Ladies may wear black dresses, white
gloves, black or white shoes feathers and
pearls, diamonds or plain gold or silver or
naments. Gentlemen must wear a black
court dress, with black swords and buckles,
instead of the usual cut steel which forms

London, February 2. The attack on

tempts to injure the reputation of the Bis
marck family. Lots of little 3-penny

Herbert Bismarck, when he was here, made
it a point to get drunkjand be carried home
when he went to balls; how he only cared
for good society because among the better

London. February 2. The Queen is to
celebrate in a few days the forty-ninth an
niversary of her wedding, which falls on
Sunday, the 10th inst. Like all the other
functions which recall th Prince Consort,
this is a solemn, cheerless affair. The
Queen's health is drunk by all the house

The King and Queen of Belgium and
Prince Baldwin arrived here at 10:30 o'clock

present. The meeting was very affecting.
The monarchs tearfully kissed and em
braced each other. The Queen isobbed as the
Emperor bent to kiss her hand. The Em

by thousands of spectators, who testified
to their reverent sympathy by standing with
bared heads during the passage of the im

DISCORD AMONG MUSICIANS.
Robcnsteln and Ton Bnlow Discnss the
Length of Each Other's Hair and Ears.
TBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH.
London, February 2. Dr. Hans von
Bnlow is engaged in a quarrel quite as
lively as any of the many in which he has
previously figured. Anton Bubenstein,
the great Bussian composer, is anxious to
produce in Berlin one of his symphonies,
and as Von Bnlow's assistance in such mat
ters is considered absolutely necessary in
the German capital, application was made
to him to act as director, and no one sup
posed he would refuse, because he has
hitherto been known as an ardent admirer
of the great Bussian, and upon one occasion
even went so far as to kiss Bubenstei's
hand and call him "the master."
Either Von Bulow's tastes have changed
or Itubenstein's genius has deteriorated,
for the German has absolutely refused to
have anything to do with the symphony.
He denounced the work as altogether inco
herent, and finished up a most insulting
letter by an unkind reference to the length
of Bubenstein's hair. Bubenstein, in reply,
mildly protests against this extraordinary
proceeding, adding: "I am astonished to
find that, with his numerous occupations,
he should find time to measure the length
of my hair. I have never thought of meas
uring his ears, although that might perhaps
have been necessary.

London, February 2. Lord Salisbury's
health is bad, his family are worried and he
is. going to take a rest, if he can find time.
The Sackville incident, it is said, preyed on
his mind. He is supposed to worry a great
deal about foreign governments, and be
troubled with insomnia.
By the way, some of the English news
papers consider it sensible to compare

New York Cars Are Beginning; to Resume
N ew Yoke, February 2. The fifth day of
the surface road tie-up opens with abundant
evidence that the spirit, if not the back
bone of the movement, is broken. A very
great number of the strikers are looking for
work at the stables, and those who still
stand aloof appear to be only half
hearted in their obstinacy. At the hour for
starting cars on the several lines that were
running yesterday scarcely a striker was to
be seen. At 9.30 A. m. all the cars of the
Third, Fourth and Sixth avenue lines were
running, and the Bleeckerand Twenty-

the number they ran yesterday. The Third
avenue line has a policeman only on every

the depot at 4:10. Some '200 drivers and

He Didn't Wait to Hear From Secretary
Bayard Before Ordering Backward
Steps Taken In Samoa
Australia Acts In
'Washington', February 2. Secretary
Bayard said this afternoon that he had not
yetryeived the proposition from Prince
Bismarck for a conference in regard to
Samoan affairs, but thought it would arrive
in a few days. It would, of course, he said,
be forwarded through the German Minister
"There is one thing," said the Secretary,
"that I think ought to be made clear in re
gard to Prince Bismarck's instructions to
the German Consul at Samoa to withdraw
his demand for control of the islands, and
that is this: The communication of Bis
marck to Count Arco, the German Minister,
announcing his action, anticipated my
telegram to Minister Pendleton, saying that
the United States would not recognize the
martial law declared by the German Consul.
It was, therefore, not "a reply to my tele
gram, but an anticipation. In other words,
Prince Bismarck sent his message to Count
Aroo before Mr. Pendleton received the
message from me."
The Secretary of State to-day received a
cable message from Mr. McCoppin, United
States Commissioner to the Melbourne Ex
position, saying that the Federal Council of
Australia has adopted an address to the
crown viewing with deep anxiety recent
events in Samoa, and favoring treaties
guaranteeing independence in Samoa, and
also expressing the opinion that foreign
dominion of Samoa endangers the safety
Secretary Barard said that he regarded
the action of the Australian authorities on
the Samoan question as very important, in
asmuch as it indicated that the people of
that large and prosperous colon; looked at
the situation pretty much in the same light
as the American people do, and were not
disposed to look favorably upon foreign
encroachments in their viciuity.
A SALOONIST'S TROUBLES.
Money Extorted From n, Braddock Man to
Settle Illegal Ijlqaor Cases.
About a week ago Joseph Fink, of Brad
dock, was returned on three indictments for
illegal liquor selling. Pending the decision
of Justice Lowry, a man named W. L.
Balston went to Fink and showed him a
letter he claimed to have received from At
torney Vost It was to the effect that if
Fink wonld agree to pay $50 the cases
against him would not be pushed. Fink:
was willing it should te so. In the fore
noon of the next day Fink received a letter
himself bearing what was afterward dis
covered to be a forged signature of Attorney
Yost, telling bow the case could be settled
by him paying a certain amount of cash to
Balston. Fink, in his eagerness to get out
of the trouble, gave Balston quite a snug
sum of money.
He was surprised the next day when he
received a notice from 'Squire Lowry
that the decision would be rendered. His
attorney, who was acquainted with Mr.
Yost's signature, pronounced those attached
to the letters to be forgeries. Balston was
arrested and is now in jail.

And Son of Them Tate Kindly to the Keels of
Experiments were made yesterday at the
Barnum winter quarters in Bridgeport upon
a number of animals to witness the effect of
electricity, and the results were amusing as
well as instructive. Some ot the animals
seemed to have their wildest instincts
spurred up, while others were almost put to
sleep. One poor, dog exhibited signs of
hydrophobia and had to be killed.
rSFECIAL TXLZQBAM TO TBE DISPATCH.! 4
Ne-w Yoee, February 2. A number of
physicians and electricians of this city went
to Bridgeport to-day and witnessed a series
of interesting electrical experiments upon
animals at the winter quarters of the Bar
num & Bailey "Greatest Show on Earth."
Barnum & Bailey placed the entire
menagerie at their service ana ae
tailed 20 keepers to assist in the
work. Among the visitors were Dr. A. "W.
Jackson, of 15 "West Sixtieth street; Dr. F.
G. Welch, of 140 "West Forty-second street;
Christian C. A. Groenbeck, the electrical
expert, and John C. Arford, the Superin
tendent of the Bridgeport Electric Lighting
Company. The instruments employed were
a powerful battery of 42 LeClanche cells
and a resistance box of 100,000 ohms. The
experiments began at 11 a. M. and con
tinued until nightfall,
how the baboon acted.
The first animal experimented with was a
savage baboon, which fought Headkeeper
George Conkling and three assistants furi
ously, and was not brought into subjection
until he had severely Ditten one on the
shoulder and tore the clothing off the arm
of another. "When securely tied, a sponge
at the end of one wire was iorced
into his mouth and a second fastened to one
of hit jaws. A current of two cells was
passed through the animal and promptly re
sented by a fierce attempt to break its bonds
and escape. The irritation increased with
the current until 28 cells were used.
Then it grew less, and when 40 cells were
applied the animal became lethargic and al
most comatose, acting very much like a man
orercome with drink. Its resistance was
then determined and fouud to be 8,000 ohms,
a surprisingly large figure. When released
and put back in his caee, the baboon be
came furious and attacked the nearest
keeper, inflicting upon him several painful
though not serious scratches.
the tame seal gets mad.
A tame seal1 was the next subject It
came from its cage at its keeper's call, and
entered the circle around which the elec
tricians were seated. It allowed the ex
perts to fasten one roll of copper wire around
its neck and a second around its tail flip
pers. The moment the current was ap
plied it snapped viciously in every
direction. The scientists sprang
right and left, upsetting chairs and
writing materials, and leaving tbe amphib
ian master of the field. "When the current
was increased the seal gnawed at the wires and
succeeded in disengaging itself from them.
The resistance could not be ascertained on
account of the seals wet coat, the water act
ing as a conductor to the electrical fluid. '
The gnu or horned horse didn't take
kindly to science. "When one of the visitors
entered his cage-it-attacked him so savagely
that three"keepers were obliged to go to his
assistance. The animal showed a resistance
of 11,000 ohmsj -and seemed paralyzed the
moment the "current was turned on. The
other animals of the same class behaved in
a similar manner, but displayed a much
lower resistance, the eland registering 7,230,
the oryx 7,010, and the nylghaw 5,090 ohms.
MONKEYS ACT CHILDISH.
The small monkeys acted very much like
little children. The moment they felt the
current they screamed and seemed to be in
agony. "When the wires were removed they
looked puzzled, and three of them took up
the electrodes as if to study them. A large
blue monkey was so interested that when
released he seized the large sponge of the
electrode, and in a second was tearing it
apart as if to find the current inside. The
resistance of the monkeys varied from 5,100
to 7,050 ohms.
The sea lion and hippopotamus were dead
failures, like tbe seal, from the wetness of
their hides. The former displayed irrita
tion at one cell, while the latter" took the
full force of the battery without wincing.
The dogs were operated upon in the
same manner as those experimented with
by the Medico-Legal Society, in this
city last fall, and with similar results.
One, after having a moderate current passed
through the base of the brain, and showing
a lesistance of 8,000 ohms, began to act
queerly a few minutes after the experiment,
and within a half an hour showed symp
toms so like those of hydrophobia that the
keepers killed him.

The wild carnivora showed a keen sensi

created considerable amusement by sitting
up on its haunches and cryiug piteously.
The elephants proved the star attractions
of the day. They actually enjoyed the sen
sation in every instance, except when a
strong current was passed through the
trunk. "When a few cells were employed
the huge beasts didn't seem to feel the cur
rent, but when the full battery was applied
they rubbed their legs together, caressed
visitor and keeper alike, and squealed with
their apparent delight. Their resistance
varied according to the points chosen for

IT. WILL NOT BE GENERAL.
The Proposed Btriko of Coke Workers Will
Likely Prove a Failure A List of the
Works Now Idle.
The proposed strike in the Connellsville
coke region, as announced in this paper yes
terday, will not become general. At a
number of works the men have come out,
bnt the operators seem to be courting a sus
pension of operations in different parts of
the region. They claim that the production
is greater than the demand, which has ne
cessitated operating the ovens only five days
a week, and some of them only four days.'
This has been the cause of some trouble, as
the men who only received four days' work
claimed that they were being imposed upon.
The statement that there was a strike at
the Jimtown works of J. M. Sehoonmaker
& Co. is incorrect. Several of the drivers
struck for an advance in wages, but as the
firm intend to abandon a number of the
ovens at these works the strike will relieve
them of the necessity of discharging some of
All the leading operators were seen yes
terday, and none of them believe there will
be a general strike. "Heretofore," said
one. "when there was any indication of a
strike we had orders from our customers for
from 60 to 100 cars of coke extra, but this
time we have not received an additional or
der. This is an indication that coke
is not in demand, and a better time
could not have been selected for
a suspension of operations. The strike of
the Limestone workers, in the Mahoning
valley, will have the effect of closing down
tne lurnaces in that section, and there will
be no coke shipped to thefnrnacemen in the
valley, whether there is a strike or not."
The Youncstown works of J. M. Schoon-
maker & Co. are idle, not on account of
a strike, but because there is no destination
for their product.
Not one of the employes of the
Leisenrings struck yesterday, and
this is considered by the other opera
tors as positive proof that the strike will
not be general. The little differences, they
believej will soon be settled and work will
be continued as usual.
A telegram from Scottdale, received last
A strike was inaugurated at the following
works in tho region to-day: Mammoth, of J.

all works, except Frick's, to strike, by a ma

giving comfort to tbe leaders.

TO TEST THEIR STEEfiQTH.
An Important Strike of Amalgamated As
oclatlon Nailers at Wheeling.
The following telegram was received from
Wheeling last night:
The owners of the Belmont nail factory,
whose nailers struck on Wednesday because a
nailer had taken 10 machines while i Is con
sidered a regulation job. Last night notices
were posted informing the men that they must
resume work on Monday or take their tools
out. This is eqnivilent to a discharge.
This afternoon tbe nailers and other mem
bers of the Amalgamated Association held an
open meeting, at which it was decided to go in
a body to the mill on Monday and remove their
tools. An impression prevails that the different
factories are combined and that the Belmont
made the move as a test of the strength of the
Amalgamated Association, the other mills
agreeing to indemnify them against loss.
The men are, of course, also combined and a
stubborn contest is to be expected. Ibe Bel

A I0DSG YIOLINIST WITH A FUT0EE.
Interesting Brents and Gossip of the Fast Week la
Local Musical Circles.
Judging by the printed opinions oi the
foremost Eastern critics and by private re
ports of tlip utmost reliability, it can safely
be said that the tno
appearances of Moriz
Rosenthal this week
will stand in local
annals among the
two or three signal
events of the current
musical season. Un
less the coming Mon
day or Tuesday
should chance to be
one of those "off

periences, and unless he should make the
great mistake (which no true artist can
make) of playing as much upon the fancied
ignorance of his audience as upon the
piano, intending auditors may fairly
expect to hear a performance that will
stand out prominently among the musical
reminiscences of a lifetime. In the Eastern
cities Rosenthal has been pre-eminently tbe
the musical sensation of the season, as little
Josio Hofmann was last year, not only win
ning unanimous encomiums from the critics
(at least for his technique; his intellectu
ality being a bone of some contention), but
drawing extraordinary audiences all the
while since his American debut last No
vember. A "WONDEBFTJT. CHILD.
Moriz Rosenthal was born December 1&,
1862, at Lemberg, in the Province of
Galicia, Austriau Poland. His father was a
local school teacher. When he was 8 years
old he began bis piano studies under Charles
Mikull, a pupil of Chopin's. Two years later
hemadn his first public appearance at Lem
berg, and soon afterward went to Vienna to
complete his musical education. There he
studied with Joseffy for three years (1974-77),
coming out before the public in 1S76 with a
programme that included Beethoven's great
"Diabelli" variations and Chopin's F minor
concerto. Ambitions for a 14-year-old; but
In October of the same year little Moriz
played for Liszt, who said he .bad tbe making
of a great pianist in him. Thus encouraged,
the lad started at once on a concert tonr, in tbe
course of which he was named court pianist to
tbe Queen of Itoumanla, and even attracted
tbe notice of the Czar of all the Rnssias. Very
sensibly, however, ho soon gave up concert
izing, until he should have studied more.
He was accepted as a pupil by Liszt, with
whom ne remained a year or more, divided be
tween Weimar and Rome. Daily, playing with
the great Abbe and in company with such
fellow students as Freidbslm, Saner and
Siloti, formed tbe best possible conditions for
the development of the young pianist's ability,
and by December. 1878. he had nrocressed far
enough for Liszt to tell him to go to Paris and
try His wings.
His Parisian snecess was fol-
lowed up by others at Frankfort Wiesbaden
and St. Petersburg.
MADE A MAir OF HIMSELF.
At this point in his brilliantly budding ca
reer, Moriz Rosenthal had the rare good sense
to give up mnsic for the time and devote his
energies to his hitherto neglected general edu
cation. Too few musical folk nowadays re
alize ttiat, as Weber put It, "to be a true artist
you must be a true man." Young Rosenthal
went back to Vienna tomake a man of himself.
He entered the classical gymnasium, worked
hard outside tbe classroom and thns made bis
final examination in 1883 at the not very late
age of 21 years. From published interviews
with the pianist since his arrival in this conn
try.it wonld seem that he bad profited mnch by
bis general studies; his talk,unllke that ot many
virtuosi, manifests an active, well-trained mind
and more than usual Intelligence.
The musical career was at once resumed, and
to such good purpose that bis reappearance in
Vienna dunng the season of 1883-4 created a
gennina sensation. Since that time Rosenthal
has been continuously before the European
Sublic. until Manager Edwin C. Stanton, of the
letropolitan Opera, secured him for the
American tour, which has thus far proceeded
with such immense success.
On this tour tbe pianist is accompanied by
the young Vienese violinist, Fritz Kreisler,
who passed his fourteenth birthday only yester
day. Thisvouns gentleman besran his vinlln
studies at 4: at 7 he played in public at Carls
bad, and at 10, after three years study In
Helmesberger's class, took the first prize at
the Vienna Conservatory. He snent two mn
years under Massart at the Paris Conservatory
where in July, 1S87, he again won the first prize.
Since then be has been constantly concertizing
with much success.
Air interesting and suggestive little
pamphlet comes for review from Mr. George
Kappel's counters, under the title of "Stray
Notes from Famous Musicians." It con
sists of a number of terse and meaty extracts
from the sayings and writings of the masters
judiciously compiled by "G. H. C" which in
itials, no donbt, cover the identity of Gertrude
H. Churchbiil. who has done other excellent
work in the same line. The price of this little
broebnre places it within reach of all thought
ful students of the art, who would do well to
lay it on their tables beside Schumann's "Hints
to Young Musicians." High Ideals and true
stimulus to earnest work may be obtained by
frequent meditation, on pregnant utterances
such, for example, as this from Wieck:
"Art Is indeed so comprehensive, and every
thing in life is so closely connected with it,
that whoever loves and fosters it will daily find
in it new sources of enjoyment and new incite
ments to study. The most experienced teacher
of art must be a constant learner."

Mr. George R. Cbaig has during the week

possible vindication of Mr. Craig's position in
tbe controversy as to the number of rehearsals
called for by his contract. The music commit

miss Mr. Craig a conple of months ago because
he ceased attending 'more tban thensnalone

feeling confident he was doing all be contracted
for, very properly declined to consider himself
dismissed. As a result. Trinity bas two organ

and similar unfortunate occurrences is that

Joseffy wants to stop for a Pittsburg con
cert about the middle of this month as he
passes westward; at least Manager Tretbar
writes to know if anyone here will undertake
such a scheme and offers reduced terms for his
brilliant bird of passage. The biggest musical
attracltoDs generally used to pass us by in
silence: of late, and especially this season, they
all want to pay ns a call while en route for the
vasty West. Wby don't some enterpns
intr party start a concert bureau here to
take these growing opportunities; by making a
business of it, there could be money made, no
doubt. Apart from that, it would be of great
advantage to tbe community's musical growth.
In the latter view, wby conld not the Mozart
Club form a plan for such a campaign as an
adjunct to their regular activity! Probably
some backing could be secured that would re
lieve the club of liability to lose anything more
than the rent for tbe hall they control.
MORE ABOUT MOORE.

Indianapolis, February 2 Joseph A.
Moore, the predecessor to John F. Sullivan
in his flight to Canada, has undoubtedly
been located in Montreal by the Canadian
police. The Insurance company, so far as
can be learned, has done nothing toward
running down Moore. They have not
opened communication with the Montreal
police or detectives. ri.
A business man who has had extensive
dealings with the company, says that Presi
dent Greene was fairly inlatuated with
Moore and absolutely refused to listen to
anything against him. He savs: "When
Greene came out here, Moore took him to
his house and entertained him in royal
style. He told his superior glowing stories
of the profitable investments which he had
made, and Colonel Greene believed them
all. He could credit nothing unfavorable
to Moore's integrity."
One of Moore's favorite tricks was to ride
Greene over the city and point out fine
buildings, on which he stated the company
had loans of a hundred thousand dollars or
more, when in fact they did not have a dol
lar on these buildings, Moore's loans being'
mostly upon such property as was scarcely
worth the face of the mortgage. A new
transaction of Moore's came to light one
day at Munoie. He sold land, representing
it unincumbered, to N,athan Anderson, who

homa Harry Hill and Frank Allbright ar

object of their visit to the camp was to in

to make no move until the bill passed the
Senate, as it was not the object of the colony
to antagonize the Government if they could
possibly avoid it.
Pawnee Bill did not like the idea of post
poning the raid, but as he had not vet cen
tralized his forces agreed to consider the
matter, and in the meantime the raiders
will change their post of operations from

rraOM A STATT COBBISPOSDIKT.l
Habbisbubg, February 2. There is
trouble between the State Board of Charities
and its offspring, the Lunacy Commission.
The trouble is, as explained by a gentleman
who thinks that they should both be? abol.
ished and a Department of Public Charities
substituted, that the creature has become
greater than the creator. The Lunacy Com
mission is theoretically a committee of ths
State Board of Public Charities, but having?
succeeded in years gone by in having itself
clothed with certain statutory powers inde
pendent of the board, does as it pleases.
What it has pleased to do has not been
unanimously indorsed, and the resultis that
a bill is now in committee, the intent of
which is to repeal the statutory powers of
the Lunacy Commission, and leave it as it
was originally designed to be, a coumitteo
of the State Board.
The commission, it seems, js vested with
the right to remove from county almshouses
and hospitals the indigent insane as it sees
fit, qnd place them in insane asylums.
EXEECISINO GBEAT POWEB.
There is no power to stop them not evea
the judgment of tbe local officials of tha
asylums, who are said to have on different
occasions protested against receiving epi
leptic and idiotic children into over
crowded institutions, and thus necessarily
at most times Into the immediate company
of the violently insane. The commission
probably acts in this matter with the very
best intentions, taking the ground that tha
State asylums and hospital are much better
arranged from a sanitary point of view; that
the food will be better and the medical at
tendance mnch superior. Tbe overcrowded
conditions of the asylums has nullified all
of these advantages. .
Dr. Wylie, who was here last week with
City Attorney Moreland and Chief Elliot,
stated to the Chairman of the Appropriation
Committee that for two years past tne cures
atDixmont have been only 18 percent,
while for years previous they had been 10
per cent greater. He attributed this en-,
tirely to the overcrowded condition of tho
Your correspondent obtained from a mem
ber of the Appropriation Committee's sub
Committee on Insane Asylums the fact
that the Harrisburg Insane Asylum, which,
is built to receive but 400 patients, con
tains 697; the Norristown asylum, built to
receive 1.200, has 1,695; the Danville asy
lum, which should have but 700, has 870.
Warren and Dixmont have not yet been '
visited, but are in a similar condition.
The Lunacy Commission is charged with
sending to these asylums many imbecila
and other harmless cases that can fully as
well be cared for in county aim-houses, and
hence the effort tohaie its separate powers
revoked and vested in the State Board of
Charities. Whether this will produce bet-'
ter results is a question. It fc the solution
of the difficulty proposed by Philadelphia.
A better solution if the State is to care -for .
all the imbecile and insane is the. one pro
posed by the Chiet of Pittsburg's Depart
ment of -Public Charities, namely, that at
least one more asylum be built, and that it
be bnilt on an economical basis.
The Appropriations Committee are giving
some thought to this phase of the question,
while the Philadelphia end ot the Common
wealth is considering the other. -""
