THE SUNDAY UNION.
Two years ago to-day the need for ad
ditional space for disposal of news
and other matter necessitated the Rec
ord-Union entering upon the publica
tion of an extra edition, known as tho
Sunday Union. At that time the Rec
ord-Union was published as a four-page
paper only. In that space it was impos
sible to find room for all news depart
ments and tho general reading matter,
with tho regularity essential to a first
This year tho Record-Union has aban
doned the old style of press and print
ing, and has put in a splendid perfecting
press, one of the finest in the United
States, with a complete stereotyping ap
paratus and an entirely new and im
proved composing room plant, and has
augmented its force of employes and en
larged to a six-page paper daily from a
four-page form. It has thus added ten
columns daily to its space capacity, giv
ing room for the placing daily of general
reading matter, for the accommodation of
which the Sunday Union was issued.
The necessity for the latter edition hav
ing ceased, the publication of a Sunday
issue will from this date be suspended
until the demand for still greater space in i
the Record-Union, and the growth of
news needs, shall warrant its resump
tion. The Record-Union last week re
ceived additional stereotyping machin
ery, enlarging its capacity to publish
with facility, and the same is now in
place. We are therefore prepared to
carry every department that has been re
served for the Sunday Union, or extra
edition, into the regular issue of six
pages daily. All tho departments and
special matter heretofore published will
be run from day to day in the Record-
Union, no feature being omitted, but
new ones being added, and the whole
general character of the paper as a first
class news, family and business journal
being much improved.
With the new lightning press and the
system of six pages daily, or fifty col
umns additional matter each week, com
pared to the old style of issue, the Rec
ord-Union will continue to be the most
desirable morning journal ofthe interior,
possessing news facilities not equaled by
any other, and representing, as it does,
State interests in the broadest sense, with
earnest and constant attention given to
IS IT A MISTAKE!
Ia it a mistake about aluminum after
all? We have been told that it ia the
coming metal, becauso it oxidizes so
slowly, is bo tough, so very light, so
easily worked and so plentiful, the only
difficulty being that a cheap process of
extracting it from clay has not yet been
Hundreds of thousands of dollars have
been tnveatad in processes and works,
and many large establishments heavily
capitalized aro now engaged in producing
it, the cost having fallen to about §1 a
pound. A greal "craze" for aluminum
has set in, and tho greatest expectations
have been raised concerning its useful
ness and universal applicability in tho
But here comes a chemist of extensive
practice, and In the New York Tribune
declares that the whole country is being
deceived, aud that there is uo such virtue
in the metal as is claimed for it.; It is not
hard; the purer it is the softer. It is but
a trifle harder than cheap zinc or spelter.
It cannot, when pure, be soldered re
liably. In working it is one of the
"mustiest" metals imaginable. It tarnishes
readily, especially in salt air, but it is true
that aluminum rust is white, while that
of iron is red and brown. A ship built
of aluminum would, in salt water, be
soon eaten full of holes, and, therefore,
lor exposed parts of ships is not worth
six cents a pouud. For roofing it is in
ferior to galvanized iron. For kitchen
vessels it is useful only when salt is not
used, and hence is not worth five cents a
Weight for weight it is not as strong as
>n. As iron for wearing parts of ma
dnery is worth fourteen cents, a pound
>f aluminum is worth much less. It will
servo for spoons and forks, and for that
purpose may do as well as tin at twenty
two cents a pound. But for such uso it is
dirty, as it soils the hands like lead, and
__-v_£_* soit. Pure aluminum is superior
for electrical current, bor;.-,' •of its great
conductivity, but it is only one-fourth as
strong as iron wire, and hence needs more
frequent supports than iron. For electri
cal conduct, then, it might be worth
twelve cents a pound.
Now, says he, all this is as to pure
alumimim; but it is claihied that
its alloys make it of high value.
He declares that no alloy of the
metal is superior, or so good as
those of copper, and hence it is worth iv
alloy less than 18 cents, the price of cop
per.i Aluminum-bronze shows the metal at
its best, for it is elastic and keeps fairly
bright, but it is extremely hard to work.
This bronze is 90 per cent, copper and 10
per cent, aluminum. Its chief value, he
sums up, is in its magnetic power in
drawing coin from the pocket for a hun
dred schemes to extract and make it.
Its true worth is that of zinc, 6 cents a
pound, and there he claims its actual
value begins and ends.
This is a formidable indictment, and it
behooves the new journal, The Alum
inum Age, to rise to the defense of its
favorite metal. The last issue of that
journal beforo us declares that tho metal
will not tarnish as does silver; that alum
inum-steel armor plates have been
adopted in ships, a small percentage of
aluminum alloy composite greatly in
creasing the strength of steel plates; that
cast-iron containing not more than one
eighth or one-tenth of 1 per cent, of alum
inum and copper will produce malleable
castings direct from tho blast furnace—
and so on, through a long chapter of
claims. We are much inclined to think
that the chief uses of aluminum will bo
found in its small percentage combina
tions with other metals. That it is of ex
ceeding usefulness in steel manufactures
there can be no doubt whatever.
LOOSENING OF COLONIAL BONDS.
Harper's Weekly, which has all along
treated the Newfoundland difficulty
with intelligence and broad-mindedness,
says, after summing up the whole matter,
that the only permanent solution lies in
the extinction of the French rights:
The great interest of Newfoundland is its
fisheries, and it would seem to be impractica
ble that a foreign power should continue to
have exclusive control for fishery purposes of
an important part of the coast. It is one of
tbe questions which, when they arise, can be
wisely settled in one way only. The present
feeling on the island recalls our own colonial
excitement before the Revolution. Ihe action
of England to denounced as harsh, and there
is even talk of possible separation. The situa
tion is naturally trying. A British colony can
hardly see with equanimity the British navy
maintaining against British subjects a French
right to exclusive privileges in the colon v.
Should the diderenc- be irreconcilable, Parlia
ment would doubtless acquiesce In a serious
proposition of separation if it were evi
dently supported by the sentiment of the
island. The colonial system in the old sense
is vanishing. Military nnd naval stations
which are essential to the British belt around
the globe will be undoubtedly maintained.
But although England fought hard and long
to retain her old American colonies, she
would probably part with Newfoundland with
out a struggle if Newfoundland really wl .bed
The Record-Union* took that view of
the matter recently, and carried the logic
of the argument on to apply to the Can
adas. While it is in the power of Eng
land to hold Newfoundland, to crush
rebellion with scarcely an effort, and to
force observance of French claims upon
the people, it would be a sorry conquest,
one over one's own, and without any
compensating benefit whatever. "You
can whip us," cried an earnest New
foundlander in the looal Parliament, "but
if you wrong us, you cannot make us love
you." And that is really the whole ques
tion. Great Britain cannot desire to hold
any colony of English people vi et armi-t.
Yet that is what must be done or the
French claims must be abandoned. How
they shall be extinguished is another
question—purchaso would seem to be the
better method, and purchase or treaty
trading will probably be adopted.
The time will come when Canada will
also be demanding greater freedom. Her
drift is toward Dominion independence,
for precisely the reason the New York
paper gives in the case of Newfoundland
—colonial ties are rapidly loosening. In
fact, the hold of the Home Government
upon the Canadas is to-day very slender,
and if they were next week to ask leave
to withdraw from beneath the jurisdiction
of the Crown we believe that within a
year thereafter the withdrawal would be
accomplished peacefully, and with little
or no resistance upon the part of the Eng
lish Government. But if annexation
were the ultimate purpose in view, Eng
land would strenuously resist, for tho
Canadian people are so divided npon that
suggestion that a very largo majority
would be found in opposition, and would
demand and receive the substantial sup
port of the Home Government. The
Canadas aa au independency would be
quite as close for all business purposes to
England as they are to-day. Certainly
no one who has diligently studied the sit
uation, kept pace with the sentiment of
the people, noted the drift of the public
thought, and observed tho forces that
brought about Australian federation, can
entertain any doubt that before the close
of tho century Newfoundland will be free
of the French or of England's rule—pos
sibly of both. Neither can close observ
ers bo blind to a growth of sentiment in
the Canadas that means ultimate inde
THE NATURALIZATION LAWS.
The London Observer declares that the
United States will be compelled to
change, by radical reform, its naturaliza
tion laws; that the nations of the world
will oblige us to that course. We agroo
with the Observer that radical reforma
tion of our naturalization laws i-- ft
sary; that it must bo effected. But the
reasons that move us to that judgment
are wholly dissimilar to those that prompt
the English journal. It believes that tho
subjects of European powers are enabled
too easily to cast off allegiance and at
tach themselves to the United States, and
that there is often such looseness in the
methods that civilized Governments
should not regard them as binding. As
for that we apprehend that, free and loose
I though they may be, the United States
will defend them and protect those shel
tered under tho law against any European
attt nipt to ignore it. But the laws need
reformation, because ease of naturaliza

enforce the spirit of the law is bringing
into our social and political systems ele
ments non-assimilative, dangerous and
generally undesirable. The time has
passed forever when a great tide of immi
gration to the United States from Europe
was necossary for us. The people of the
nation are prepared to put the bars up
very high now, and to make the path to
citizenship from alienship long, difficult
and accessible to those only who prove
their worth and sincerity.
A Cleveland, Ohio, bond concern of
alleged benevolence, announcing that for
every dollar invested with it it would
return three dollars within a year, after
swindling some thousands of people has
collapsed. The wonder is that iv this day
of enlightenment auy one could be found
to invest in such concerns promising so
much. Yet there are dupes in plenty for
every new scheme of this order that is
put forward. Probably nowhere else
have the fraudulent and impossible char
acter of these so-called tontines been so
thoroughly exposed as in Ohio; yet, in
the same State, within a year or two after
the exposo, a now swindle is projected
and finds no difficulty in securing some
thousands of Buckeye subscribers. It
will not do to attribute this fact to igno
rance, since it develops that a majority of
the people who go into tho schemes aro
those who havo been warned against
them, or who have had bitter experiences
in swindles of a similar character. It is
more rational to look for tho cause for the
supply of dupes to the meaner side of
human nature, the perfect readiness of a
large class of people to "take the chances"
of making something at tho expense
of someone else. They hope to be
in early enough to become members
of the little band that may receivo somo
few crumbs, that their example may op
erate to tho winning over of those who
are still doubtful and suspicious. It is
probable that theso mutual benefit and
endowment associations lure some to
their nets who aro ignorant of the snare;
but the majority who go in nowadays
are those who are dishonest enough to bo
willing to realize upon the misfortune
or the skinning of others. Itis the old,
old story of willingness to risk being
swindled, in order to share tho booty
stripped from others. The true method
of treating tho whole list of associations
proposing to give something for nothing,
is to pass by on the other side; to remain
deaf to their alluring promises and blind
to their attractive mathematics. Put it
down as a rule that any manner of organ
ization proposing to receive money and
pay it back with gain at the end of a given
time, that has no legitimate investment
for such funds, and derives its alleged
profits from forfeitures, is a fraud, and is
an eggregious swindle whenever it pro
poses to pay enormously more than is
invested in a comparatively brief time.
Professor Elliott's report on the
Behring Sea seal fisheries lias now been
published. It would till some six col
umns in the Record-Union*. It is a
complete history of the catch of seals for
nearly a century and a review ot all
causes affecting the diminution of the
catch. The conclusion reached is that if
this season as many as 60,000 skins are
taken from among killable seals, males
from one to five years old, there will be
an end of the fisheries, and the Behring
Sea question will be effectually and final
ly settled. He concludes his report with
First—That no driving and killing of fur
seals fur tax and shipment on the seal Islands
ol Alaska be permitted by the Government
for a period of at least seven years from date;
Second—That the co-operation of Great
Britian and Russia be secured in perfecting
our international close time by which all kill
ing of fur seals in the open waters of Behring
Sea will be prohibiten during the breeding
season of these animals, and in order that the
representatives of Oreat Britain and Russia
may see the truth of my statement as to what
threatens to exterminate these animals if pe
lagic sealing, as well as terrestrial sealing, is
DOt at one.' stopped, that a commission of
British, Russian and American experts be in
vited to visit the seal islands next summer
and report fairly upon the subject.
lii concluding this introduction to mv work
of the past season, and Its result, I desire to
say that I have been exceedingly careful Jn
gathering my data upon which I base all
Statements of fact and opinion, and to secure
tinse data I liave literally lived out upon the
field its'lf. where those facts alone can be
gat hered honestly, or else they had better not
be gathered at all.
Tue college physician at Yale has been
collecting and studying the statistics of
the tobacco habit among tho "seniors" of
the young men of that institution. He
finds that non-users have an average in
crease of 06 per cent, of lung capacity, 19
per cent, of chest inflation, 20 per cent,
of hight and 25 per cent, of weight. He
finds the mental statistics to be equally
significant and clearly established by the
records of appointments. But the meas
urement statistics are those that address
themselves most forcibly to general in
telligence, lf these measurements are
found to hold to a fair average taken
among men in various conditions in life
and environments, they will constitute
au argument that cannot be answered.
We aro not prepared, however, to found
a theory upon the measurements of a
single group, as that at Yalo. Statistics
to be of value in such a matter must be so
comprehensive as to exclude the idea oi
any other condition than the one studied
affecting the results ascertained. It is
entirely probable, however, that Dr.
Seaver's figures will hold out if general
and distributed measurements are made
among habitual users of tobacco, in con
trast with non-users, the conditions in
other respects being similar.
The Chicago Herald, discussing the
proposition now before that city to dilute
its sewage with pure water, says:
F.ut before we have 3,000,000 people In
(inicago it will nerhans be found that the sew
sr-'e should not be diluted, but condensed and
utilized as a valuable lertillzer. Sewage is
thus utilized in other cities of the world, and
It may be here.
In which conclusion the Herald is
right. Dilution involves a never-ending
cost. Chemical treatment costs less and
brings in some financial return. But
chemical treatment is precisely as appli
cable to the sewage of a town of 30,000
population as to a city the size of Chicago.
The Epoch, which has been ono of the
severest critics of President Harrison, in
ita issue of May Sth admits that he haa
disabused the public mind, in so far as
his speeches go, of the idea that had been
cultivated by his opponents that he is a
narrow partisan, and bound within
cramped sectionalism and party confines.
All suoh frank admissions are pleasing
aud gratifying, not because they enlarge
the public estimate of the incumbent of
the Presidential chair, but because they
indicate the breaking down of party bar
riers between citizens and the growth of
Americanism and unity among the peo

Rivalry Among Shipping Firms—What
Cherries Ilrought Yesterday.
There is considerable rivalry between
the competing fruit-shipping houses in
this city. Each naturally desires to be
ahead of its rivals in tho matter not only
of early shipments but of the quantities
forwarded to Eastern markets.
Manager Perry, of the Earl Fruit Com
pany, claimed last night, in an interview
With a Rk-01-d-Uxio-* reporter, that his
company had a sale in Chicago yesterday
of cherries shipped on Tuesday night—

Says the Tjrt.ckeo republican: "Tho

all they can get hold of in the shape of

in sheep now, and the sheep men are in
creasing their Hocks rapidly. We are

young trees and raise cain generally."
