falling and rapidly, too is a fact pat

the fact Is being kept from the public
through regard for the aged poet.
Whitman Is extremely sensitive on the
point of his own physical welfare, and
any allusion to hi condition brings
fotth confidential expressions of his
buoyancy of spirit, yet III concealed ad
mission of weakness.
The weather during the past few
weeks has been particularly distressing
to him, and lie has been unable to leave
his house to breathe in the sunshine and
the light he so loves. His rolling chair
became a familiar object on the streets
of Camden for a few weeks this spring.

of the great shaggy beard blowing in
the breeze, the huge white hat and the
Units snugly incased in a heavy woolen
shawl, was pushed along ou the suaay

and IU famous occupant was greeted

to each other as it passed:

also, from n Spanish point of view,

problems connected with labor, the
Spanish Ministry nnd the monarchical

tho utmost Indifference to the needs nnd

and treat, with poorly concealed con

follow In tho wake of the more pro-

Itlon of Spanish labor Is worse than In
any other country of Wcslcrn Kurope,
tho only amelioration being such ns Is
secured bysironir organization In cer
tain localities. The effect Is that the
worklngmen nrc learning to look to
revolution ns their probable rcllof,
though there Is no Information of any
existing conspiracy against tho govern

It Is reported from llcrlln that the
nntl-soclnllst law, which will expire ou
October 1, will not be renewed. This
Is a part of tho government's bid for
the support of the Socialist members of
the Reichstag, who are nlso expected
to be won over to Ihe Kmpcror by tho
bill amending tho present factory and
workshops act. which goes very far In
amelioration of the condition of tho
laboring people. Although the bill
permits women to work eleven hours a
day, this Is still quite a reform In Ger

By illrvrllon ot tbe sbove-nsmfrt orgjnl
intlmi thi appeal l miHlp to yon.
Tlie act of June , 1W, ileclnred "Tint
eight hours shall eonstllnle a dsv's work,
tor all laborers, workmen and mertisnt s
now emploved, or who may hereafter Im
employed, tiy or on behslf ofthf tiorern
m rut of the I tilted ."tales."
The purpose of Ihelswwssto promitte
tlie welfare of wage-eriir by rrenlltii; a
normal working day, to extend employment
to a greater number of tcote. nnd lo e
tabllsli nn example for private emi'Iovi'M
and workers to Imitate.
Tbe law has failed liecanse public otlb n
have persistently violated Its spirit and lu
tent by requiring more than eight lioiirt of
labor per day, and t letting pubtlr w irk
at contract whenever posalblc.
We Instance at the present time the (I jv
eminent 1'rliitlipn (iftlce, where eniplovei
are rtHpilred and allowed to make "over
time;" tlie Government Inwne Asylum,
where Jwllents are eompelled to wor
fifteen and a half to alxteen hours per day
and the jostofnees, where letter carrier
are forred to devote twelve hours per div
to the public service. We believe the uiun
prai tlce prevails to a conalderable extent
in the navy-yanK arsenals, military .ml
usval academies and on puhllr ImiUI'iit,
Tbe Supreme Court In Martin' casn I
