"It 18 a fatal mistake," says the
New York Tribune, "for business men
to lose courage in dull times and to
imagine that trade In 10 had that it is
useless to attempt to work it np by
eommsndtng in lie attention through
legitimate advertising expedients. It
is the concurrent testimony of all the
most energetic merchants In trade
that the returns from advertising
were never more direct and speedy
than dnring the present year of de
pression. The foolish angler is the
one who casts aside his rod when the
ery is raiB.-d that the full will not bite.

More About Consular Reform.

exact nature of the bill which he is
now endeavoring to have congress

The Welsh in America.
In concluding his entertaining paper
explanatory of the interesting tradi
tion that Madog, a Welsh prince, dis
covered America In the twelfth cen
tury. 300 years in advance of either
Vespucci or Colnmhtis, lienjaruin F.
Lowis, of Utica, N Y., editor of the
leading Welsh-American paper, Y
Drych, recently paid a tribnte to his
countrymen in Utiea which is so apt
and at the same time so applicable to
our own community that we shall,
witbont further ceremony, reprodnce
As or.1) who has lived thirty-five years in
Utica and is fairly familiar with its popu
lation, I am free to assert that our citizens
of thet nationality have every reasoti to be
proua of their record iu the pest an1 of
their character and standing In this cam -mnnity
today. In devotion to religious
principles, in works of charity and bene
volence, in the intelligent pursuit of
literary advancement and musical cultnre,
in the cardinal virtues of Industry, thrift,
honesty and American patriotism, their
record for the past. 100 years is one that
maketh not esnnnied. Claiming no superi
ority, we admit no inferiority to the best
found among tbe different nationalise! of
our population. We respect the good
people of Utica of every nationality. We
differ from eacb other in soruo respeots,
but we are all wonderfully human, with
some faults, foibles and peculiarities: but
above all, with warm benris, earnest sym
pathies, helping minds, bound t iirether iu
the bonds of a common brotherhood;
proud of our beautiful city, which has fur
nished so many illustrious names for our
country's roll of honor; proud of our fer
tile and prosperous county; proud of our
tnagnincent imperial suto; ami over ami
above all, proud of our glorious country,
a conntry thBt we intensely love, whether
it be ours by birth or adoption.
This tribute breathes a. spirit of fair
nessand justice which cauuot be too
generously commended. There is dan
ger in fulsome compliments to classes
separated, at least in sentiment, by dif
ferences in racial extraction, becanse
such compliments tend to foster exclu
siveness and discourage that frank as
similation which is the hone of our
composite American citizenship. But
there is no danger in the true word of
candid praise which reserves its high
est eloquence for patriotic allusion to
our common country, as whose citizens
Welsh-Americans stand upon an
equality with all other races and
classes bound by equal u'.leginnce and
exhibiting equal lovaltv.

lt-'i re the Oneida Historical socity,
of Utica, N Y., Bdltof Benjamin V,
L-wis, of V Drych, recently read an
interesting piper giving facts and
fables as to th tradition, long oher-
lbed iu Cymry, that Uadog, bob f
Owaln flwyned I, a prince who rnb-d in
North Wales from 1 1 87 to 11 SB, was
the first real tliscoverer ami colonizer
of the North American continent, ocru
tiving a position miilwav between Lief
BrloeOO, who touched what is now the
Msssachutetts shore quite br accident
in the eleventh century, leaving little
evidence of his momentary binding, and
Christopher Colon, otherwise Colum
bus, who sighted the new world 10
MU2. The tradition hss it that upon
his father's death Madog, disgusted at
the dissensions among his brothers, set
out wiih three small ships to find a
new home. After some titn he re
turned with such glowing accounts of
the result of his quest that another ex
pedition was lilted out, containing ten
ships Bad 800 countrymen. All that is
known is that this flotilla went west
ward, pissing Ireland to the north
The tradition has it that Madoir's first
discovery of America was iu 11(10; and
ihat, four years later, ha reoroased the
Atlantic with eighteen ships and 11,000
countrymen ami took possesion of the
throne and kingdom of .Mexico, giving
birth to the Azteo race and eiplaiulng
the existence on American soil of pale
hued Indian tribes who stioke a dialect
said to resemble Welsh.
a e e
The great contention lias been ns to
whether this tradition was current in
Wales before the life of Columbus
We now quote from Mr. Lewis' ad
dress: Those who take th aflirmative viow re
fer to cotillrmative expressions found in
the poems o' theso contomporary bards,
Cytiddelw, Llywarch ah Llewelyn aud
(iwalchtnai, but the meaning given to
these quotations is disputed bv those who
take the negative side. The next refer
ence to Madog is by Meredith sp Khys, a
bard who flourished botween 1480 Bad
1477, and ho unquestionably refors to
Madog ab Owain (Iwynedd a n rover of
the seas. In his -Travels," published in
1634, Sir Thomas Herbert, refers to a
CvBvig ab Gronw as authority for the
Madog discovery of a western continent.
A Welsh triad speaks of Madog nb Owain
Qwynsdd aa having gone to sea with ten
ships aud 8oil men, but adds that "it is
not known to what place they went." In
1168, fourteen years before the date given
for Mining's first voyage, there died in
Wales a monk known as Canning of Llan
Carvan, He left in manuscript h history
of Wales, which was coutluued, It is
claimed, by other monks for succeeding
feneration. The work was translated in
to English by Humphrey Llwyd iu H8
and edited aud published by Dr.
David Powell in 15S4. In this his
tory as left by I.lwyd, the Madog tradition
is given in detail, with the explanation
that the country, from the descriptiou
given ot it by Madog, must have been the
same country as that afterwards discover
ed by the Spaniards. Dr. Powell, the edi
tor, argued that the country discovered by
Uadog must have been Moxlco. This his
tory is supposed to have brought the Ma
dog tradition first to the attention of Eng
lish readers; but Sir Ueorue Porkhain men
lions the story in a pamphlet in it. Tbe
story of Madog's ad Veil turee 0000 publish
ed, was generally accepted by zealous Bug
Uahmen In order to claim for themselves
priority of discovery as against the Spani
ards It is found iu Hsyhiyt's travels,
published in 1589; in Ral Igh's history of
the world, I6U; in l'unha's pilgrimage,
HVifi; and in the History of the World by
Abbott, archbishop of Canterbury, pub
lished about the same time, lames llowell,
a Welshman and a graduate of Oxford,
while In Heat prison, London, wrote a
large number Of letters which were pub
lished between 11145 aud !(i."i5. In these he
had tuuen to say of the Madog expeililion.
So much for the authenticity of the
Mating tradition. We c tme now to
nearer material, whether lact or fable
each reader may decide for biinself.the
purport of which is that at the lime
Columbus landed in Mil'.', there were
Indian trib-s on American soil that
looked like descendants of a white rsee
and that spoke a language which
Welshmen could understand. Again
David Ingram, a sailor, who went with
Sir John Hawkins to the West indies In
l!r., is the first known authority for the
as-erttnn that i-niln speaking the Welsh
language were found among the Indians
on this Continent In a narrative written
by I j 1 1 ii in l.'.sJ, lie says he found here a

laid to rest with the legend of Arthur
and his mailed knights sleeping in a
subterranean cavern awaiting the
break of day, to go forth to battle for

knightly, though unfortunate Dom
Sebastian, who was for centuries ex
pected to return from the laud of the
Moslems to restore the glory of the
Portuguese nation, or the Old Rodrigo,
who is to redeem tho bpanish name and
restore the grandeur and power of the
old Castilian monarchy; or Frederick
Hsibarossa, the contemporary of
Matlog, who is believed lo sleep lightly
enough beneath tho soil of Thuringis
