A ROYAL HERO.
When thcic is true hcioisni in a
nation, times of great danger or
distress will lning it to the front.
King llumbeit of Italy has shown
himself to he the stutf of, which
hcioes aie made, hy his conduct in
presence of the choleia plague.
AVIion the awful ncouige entcied
Naples, the nobility and wealthy
people took llight, and left those
who could not get away to cope with
the disease as best they might. The
usual panic seized the populace, and
they dropped off like sheep. The
King entered the city and did all he
could to allay the popular tenor,
institute. lneaxuios to htax the plague,
and relieve the disticss attending it.
The royal example shamed at least a
portion of the nobility into leaiiining
their manhood. They letuincd to
the city and went vigoiously to work
to quell the excitement, check tho
epidemic ami feed the thousands of
people who wcie staiving on account
of the general sponsion of busi
ness. Ladies of the highest nobility,
the latest accounts sn1, are working
like slaves in the ambulance service
of the Red Cross Society and in
nursing the hick under the direction
of the Sanitary Commission. When
ever the King shown himself and
he has been making daily l omuls of
the slums the whole population
turns out to do him honor, and old
residents state that the enthusiasm
exceeds that manifested when f!aii
baldi cnteied Naples and was hailed
as the savior of Italy.
THE MINISTRY'S APOLOGIST.
The Advertiser disclaims speaking
for the Ministry every time it is
taken up in shielding the Ministry.
Unless, however, the Ministry re
pudiates its defender, theie is no
' just reason why the Ministry should
not bo attacked upon the grounds of
defence .set up' for it. As to the
violence atttibuted to our leccnt
"attack" upon the Ministry, al
though gentleness of treatment might
be inconsonant with faithfulness,
yet the violence of language was not
rcmaikablc provided its btfulcn was
just. If the best apology for the
failure of the Ministers is that Uicie
is so much antagonism to them in
the body politic as to hamper their
administration, their only dignified
course is to retire from tho hopeless
task. Possibly the country might
f.uc worse at the hands of their
sucecssots, but if the latter have an
example before their eyes of the
impossibility of a comfortable tenure
of power while at vat lance with
public sentiment, they would likely
stiive to win the nation's favor by
giving it better government. Again,
if the Government's gtcatcst dilll
culty at this juncluie is want of
money, it does not imply hatted
of " Gibson "as our contemporary
puts it to enquire how it comes
that the country has been brought
to baukiuptcy, from (he position of
having a surplus in the trcasuiy In
which the picscnt Ministry found it.
And if a leply be given to such an
enquiry which is prejudicial to the
Government, and the Advertiser re
mains silent as to the met its of the
case, its silence is more damaging to
the Ministry than the most violent
attacks of its opponents. We gave,
in biicf, the causes that led to the
impoverishment of the national
treasury, yet the only rebuttal ven
tiucd is a complaint that we indulged
in a violent attack upon the Minis
ters. If that is the best defence
that can be made for it, the Ministry
is as bankrupt in character as it is i'n
A funny freak of rcd-tapeisin is
exhibited in the Governor of Ali
centa's quarantining of the Health
Inspector sent by the Italian Home
A conference of the three Euro
pean ICmperors of Germany, Hus
sia and Austria was to have been
held on Monday week. Tho occa
sion is deemed ominous in view of
the general jealousy on the conti
nent toward England.
If it was not inconsistent for the
Advert her to deny to the opponents
of the Government the credit of
defeating the bank charter, and a
few days afterward to attack them
for having produced an agitation that
killed the measure, then the diction
aries should be revised to put a
meaning on the word "inconsistent"
which would be inconsistent with its
prcent general acceptation.
The Democrats make a good point
when they siy that under Repub
lican rule the public lands which
should be a safety valve for labor
out of employment in seasons of
depression have been cut up into
principalities for millionaires. "The
land for the people" is beyond
doubt the true doctrine for young
countries hat have lands in the
keeping of their Governments. It
is surprising that in this respect the
United Stales and Canada have
largely ignored the lessons afforded
them in the bitter experience of old
At the annual meeting of tho
Planters' Association, which will be
held in about two weeks, the best
thought of the planting interest will
be given to the labor question. Until
then, we do not see much profit in
taking the advice of the Advertiser
to discuss the matter. To letuin
the compliment, however, we would
advise our contemporary not to
Matter the (ioxcrnment xvtth any en
couragement that the planters can
be beguiled into replenishing the
treasury without adequate asstuanee
that the labor supply would be made
a first chaigc on the funds. If the
planters should consider no assur
ance from the present Ministry to be
adequate, so much" the worse for the
Ministry. And if the money has to
come out of the planters' pockets, it
is possible they may picfer to pay
for immigration diicct, lather than
make an investment in Government
bonds, the proceeds of which, as
likely as not, might go to paying old
Government debts on immigration
and other accounts.

ANTISHAMUS ON SHAMS.
KniToit Uin.i.inx: My name is
Antishauius, and, as my name indi
cates, 1 am against all sham and
humbug and bunkum. You say
your columns are open to every
body. If everybody keeps within
proper bounds. 1 am glad of it,
for that gives me a chance, and I
will try to keep within proper
bounds. If 1 don't, you can shut
mo out. that's all. You are an
editor, and know everything; 1 am
not, and know nothing; but do a
heap of looking on and thinking. 1
think and sec many things which I
never see in the papers, and 1 sec
some things in the papers which I
think ought not to be there. Hut
everybody docs not think and sec
alike. A knowledge of this makes
me tolerant of much that I dislike.
Perhaps, if I am allowed. I shall be
saying things that others dislike,
and they may not be o lenient
towards inc. I am not troubled
about that; for I am a wild Arab of
the desert and care nothing for the
good or bad opinions of mankind,
as long as 1 possess the conscious
ness of being on the side of truth.
Well. I was going to say about
papers, that I rend them and get
confused. This may be owing to a
natural lightness in my upper
story. One paper tells ine one
thing, and the next contradicts it.
There is something wiong some
where: they can't both be right.
One paper says the country is all
biokcn up, the other says it's O. K.
There must be some falsifying or
shamming on one side or the other.
What is it? Perhaps a little on
both. I am inclined to think so.
Then I am against both. Long
years ago, when I was making dirt
pics in the sandy desert. I heard a
storv about two travellers meeting
from opposite directions, and just
where they met there was a shield
hanging on a tree. One traveller
said it was made of gold, the other
swore it was pure silver. After a
big squabble they discovered it was
half-and-half one side gold and the
other silver. So they were both
right ; they were both wrong, and
neither was wrong: they were half-and-half.
That may be the case
with the newspapers. Everybody
knows that the best intention can
not always discover the exact truth,
and that in many matters the dimi
nutive mind of man is incompetent
to judge between truth and error.
But if the newspapers cannot be a
reilex of absolute truth, let them
approximate as near to it as they
know how, carefully avoiding all
partisan coloring as they would the
dread Simoom of llendahir.
That's not all. It is not enough
that newspapers abstain from sham
ming: they should take the lead in
exposing and opposing all shams,
of all kinds and colors. The man
who has the courage to lift up his
voice against the sham and bunkum
lying around loose in this perverse
world, is my friend and brother. I
feel deep yearning within me to be
of service in that line myself, and
would like you, Mr. Editor, to pub
lish a collection of Arabian talcs
which 1 have preserved with great
care; also some scattered but l are
fragments of Egyptian Chronicles,
written by a learned captain who
flourished man' centuries prior to
the granite formation; and that
celebrated book, "Agamemnon's
Discourses," an Alexandrian copj',
discovered in the ancient ruins of
Wailuku by a classical native of
that city. In these faithful records
of the past there is to be found,
ready to hand, a paiaphrase of
every species of humbug, impos
ture, corruption and villany which
has ever astonished or disgusted the
world, from the first conviction for
swindling before Mr. Justice Adam
down to the Hank Charter and the
appearance of small fish in the har
bor. I propose to send you these
valuable MSS. as occasion may offer
or inclination prompt.

LATE FOREIGN NEWS.
The late Secretary Folger was born
on the island of Nantucket, wheic
the first of the name settled more
than two hundred years ago. Ben
jamin Franklin's mother was Hannah
Folger; and, singularly enough, her
mother Franklin's grandmother
was brought from England under the
emigrant system which then pre
vailed, and purchased by her future
liusband for 20. The Secretary
was probably a distant connection of
tho great printer-philosopher.
