A Project to Eitabllah Mainple
ROOllll In Oriental Cltlen.
Consul Monaghan writes that Ger
man newspapers are agitating the es
tablishment of sample warerooms in
the cities of the Far East, as a method
most likely to yield the largest, return*
at the smallest outlay. To exhibit
goods, they say, in Bombay and Calcut
ta, Peking, Shanghai and Hongkong, in
Yokohama and Tokyo, in Valparaiso
and Santiago, in Buenos Ayres and Rio
de Janeiro, for one year, is worth a
century of circulars by mail. Nothing is
so eloquent and instructive as direct
contact with the objects offered for
sale, nor Is any nation above this need.
The Japanese Consul in Bombay is
urging his people to put forth every
effort along these lines. Since the re
turn of the Lyons commission France is
organizing syndicates to extend trade,
which send out and maintain one or
more agents to show samples, obtain
orders and keep in touch with the
trade. Consul Monaghan further says:
"The East has more than half the hu
man race to clothe and feed, and no
nation has opportunities like our own.
With lines of steamers from San Fran
cisco, Seattle and Portland; with a
canal via Nicaragua or Panama, and
communication with the Gulf and At
lantic cities, we must participate as no
other power can in the commercial
splendor promised for the coming cen
tury. If coarse cottons can be spun
and woven in the South; if Alabama
can make iron rails as cheap or cheaper
than England; if Europe buys our ma
chines, locomotives, tools, agricultural
Implements, etc., we must carry these
products to the East."
The Children'* Crunailr.
Although the children's crusade came
In 1212 A. D., between the third and
fourth crusades, it will be considered
here because the mere fact that there
was a children's crusade shows how
great was the excitement, the fanatic
ism, and the craze of the entire move
ment. Stephen, a twelve-year- old boy
from among the French peasantry,
preached the crusade; he declared that
Christ had commanded him to lead the
children of Jerusalem and so eloquent
were the words of this lad, so impreg
nated with the idea was the very air,
that children gathered at his call by
the thousands. Even bolts and bars,
we are told, could not hold them.
Pitiable beyond realization must
have been the scenes presented by this
mimic crusade, which saw 50,000 Ger
man boys and girls, under twelve years
of age, cross the Alps—a feat, which
when performed by Napoleon was
deemed wonderful —march down the
Italian coast looking for a miraculous
pathway through the Mediterranean;
pitiable their disappointment when no
pathway appeared; pitiable the disap
pointment of the 47,000 who were un
able to obtain passage on the ships;
more pitiable the sailing away into
oblivion of the 3,000 little crusaders,
for they were never heard of more. Of
the expedition, 30,000 French children
had gathered at Marseilles. Of these
many sailed away, only to become vic
tims to the human depravity of the
men who guided those ships to Alex
andrian and other Mohammedan slave
markets, and there sold the children as
Dill of LadUf for Slaves.
A bill of lading for slaves is a
curiosity in its way. The following w
tract is Irom one dated Keb. 1, 17B6: j
Shipped, by the Orace of God, in good
order and well conditioned, by James
the Mary Borough, whereof its master,
under God, for this present voyage,
Captain David Morton, and now riding
at anchor at the Barr of Senegal, and
by God's grace bound for Oeorgey, in
South Carolina, to say, twenty-tour
prime slaves, six prime women slaves,"
&c. It ends with the pious wish that
"God send the good ship to her desire'd
port in safety. Amen."
However impious it may appear to us
to associate the name of God with the
iniquitous traffic, still it was looked
Upon by many as a divine institution,
directly sanctioned by' the Bible. The
famous slave-trading Captain, John
Newton, afterward to be the Rev. John
Newton of Olney, hymn writer and
friend of Cowper, did by no means see
it to be his duty to change his profes
sion immediately after his conversion,
though he ultimately became an abo
litionist; he carried on slavetrading for
years after he was a devout Christian,
giving thanks in the Liverpool church
es for the success of his last venture,
and imploring God's blessing on his
