A conservative policy with regard
to tho public domain has forced
itself upon the United StatcsTCou
grcss. The pre-emption desert land
and the timber culture laws have
been repealed, and the homestead
law has been amended. Under each
of those -three laws it was possible
for one person to obtain 160 acres
of land, or 480 acres in all. Under
the desert reclamation law good
agricultural lands were' taken con
trary to the intent of the measure.
Tho timber culture law came short
of its intended object and opened a
door to fraudulent operations similar
to those practised under the other
law just mentioned. An amendment
to the homestead law, under which
alsoabuscs grew up, " provides that
no public lands, except abandoned
military or other reservations, miueral
lands and other lands the sale of
which has been authorized by special
acts of Congiess, shall be sold at
public auction or by special privute
entry." Rights begun to be ac
quiied before the law was amended
are to be respected. Tho report of
the committee on the land bill just
passed by the Senate contains the
following significant passages :
"There is a rapidly growing sen
timent in this country for the repeal
of all laws providing for the disposal
of agricultural public lands, except
the homestead law, that the public
domain shall hereafter be reserved
for homes for settlers. The com-
mittco is of the opinion that this
should be the future policy of tho
Government. Even if settlers arc
restricted to 160 acres of land, it
would be but comparatively a few
years before all the public lands
suitable for homes will be ex
hausted." " The practical exhaustion of our
public domain will force upon the
attention of the people of this coun
try new, important and difficult
questions, and in the opinion of tho
committee the time when our rapidly
increasing population, instead of
being able to take up homesteads on
public lands and make homes for
themselves, shall be compelled to
find homes in our overcrowded cities,
should, by wise legislation, be post
poned as long us possible."
Not many years ago any appre
hensions of a not rcmoto time, when
room would bo straitcped for popu-
' ' lation iu the vast domains of the
1 United States, would have been
scouted as the dreams ofa pessimist.
Yet even now, early in the first
quarter of tho nation's second cen
tury, while people aro living to whom
Ohio was the "Far West," the
A ' national councils arc brought to face
tho but lately unthought-of emer
gency. Very liberal, and, to tell
tho truth, somewhat looso settlement
laws, a most lavish endowment of
railways, and, lattcily, the leaving
tho door open for the most uncon
scionable and extensive land grab-
, on tho part of New World
monopolists and Old World nristo-
crls, hnvo combined to bring tho
nation to tbis pass. Lnto ns it ii, it
lo rc-nssuring to tho pcoplo of
America that tho colossal prodiga
lity heretofore obtaining iu tho dis
posal of their own and tholr child
ren's horitngo is going to be, if pos
tiblc, put nn end lo. Tho example
of our big neighbor is one that
should bo laid to heart by this
Kingdom. Perhaps in no country
in tho world, proportionately to tho
population and extent of territory,
is the land parcelled out so un
equally, und so rcgardlessly of na
tional interests, as in theso Hawaiian
Islands. Tho statesman of tho fu
ture will have to engage this great
wrong in tv life nnd death struggle.
For a country wholly dependent
upon its soil, there can be no ques
tion paramount to the land question.

Last evening the Rev. J. A. Cru
zan united in the holy bonds of
matrimony a pair of the most amia
ble and popular young people in
the town Mr. Fred. Harrison and
Miss Emma Victoria Nott. The
ceremony and festivities following
took place at the house of the bride's
parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Nott, on
King Street. Some extra interest
had attached to the event owing to
its having had to be postponed from
an earlier date, owing to an unfor
tunate accident happening the bride
groom while responding, as one of
our gallant firemen, to a firo alarm,
The wedding was joyfully celebra
ted by a largo company, tho majori
ty of which was composed of young
"fair women and brave men," in
cluding many of the father's and
groom's fellow fire-fighters. Minis
ter Gulick and wife and a number of
venerable sires ana dames made up
the balance. Seldom has a finer
illumination been seen hero than that
arranged by Mr. McGuire, fire mar
shal, in the front of the residence.
Festoons of Oriental lanterns formed
a resplendent avenue all tho way.f rora
the street to the house. The front
of the house was ono great chroma
tic blaze from over a hundred lan
terns, arrayed in the most effective
order. Flower-trimmed arches of palm
leaves made the portals entrancing,
and the interior of the house was
beautifully decorated.- Tho parlor
where the ceremony took place was
hung in rare tasto with palmB, roses,
honeysuckles and other flowers and
foliage. At half-past seven, tho
appointed hour, the bride and groom
entered, attended by the bridesmaid
and groomsman Mr. E. B. Hop
kins and Miss Harrison and in a
few minutes the Rev. Mr. Cruzan
had performed the rite and pro
claimed the twain husband and wife.
After congratulations, the parlor
was cleared for dancing, which was
carried on with zest by tho young
people until about midnight, to tho
strains of soft and agreeable music.
There was no lack of .enjoyment,
cither, for non-dancers, and a more
pleasant company it would be diffi
cult to gather. An abundant col
lation was spread in a largo wing of
tho house, and refreshments, staple
and dainty, were in order through
out the evening. The young couple
thus starting upon their united
course through life are happy iu the
good wishes of all who know, and
only know to esteem, them.
WHAT CONSTITUTES C00D MORTAR.
Machinists and engineers often
have occasion to uso mortar, and
will value the appended information:
Good mortar is a solid silicate of
lime, that is, the lime unites with
silica or sand to form a silicate of
lime. In ancient days those who
had some conception of the way tho
two tilings united superintended
their mixing; nowadays anybody
is supposed to know how to make
rnmmmm!mm9Emsmjimm wwHU.uui!uiW!i! i pj
mortar, whllo nobody knows much
about it. Dry lime nnd dry sand
laid togclhor or mixed and kopt dry
for a thousand years would not unite
to form silicate of llmo any more
than acetic acid and carbonato of
soda dry In a bottle would effervesce.
To make silicate of lime just as good
as was made by the Romans, all that
is necessary is to proceed intelli
gently : Procure good caustic, '. c,
fresh-burned lime, and if you find
it all powder, i. c, nir slaked, don't
uso it, use only clear lumps. Slake
this (if possiblo in a covered vessel),
using only enough water to cause
tho limo to form a powder. To this
while hot add clean sand not dirt
and loam called sand, but sand
and with the sand add enough water
to form a paste. Then let it lie
where it will not become dry by
evaporation, if in a cellar so much
tho better; for as soon as you have
mixed the sand and lime as above,
they begin to react one on the other,
and if not stopped by being deprived
of moisture will go on reacting until
silicate of lime (as hard as any
silicate of lime ever was) is formed.
But if you take this so-called
mortar as soon as made, and lay
bricks with it, unless tho bricks are
thoroughly wet, you stop tho forma
tion of silicate of lime, and might as
well lay your bricks in mud. Limo
and sand, after being mixed, might
lie two years with advantage, and
for certain uses, such as boiler
setting, or where the whole structure
is of brick and mortar, the mortar
ought to be mixed for one year
before use, and two would bo better ;
but for house building, if the bricks
aie so wetted as not to rob the
mortar of its moisture as soon as
used, mortar that has been mixed a
month will form good Solid silicate
of lime among the bricks it is laid
with in ten years. Tho practice of
mixing mortar in the stree'ts and
using it at once is as foolish as it is
ignorant, and would be no improve
ment. Silicate of lime is made only
by the slow' action of caustic lime
and sand, one on the other under
the influence of moisture. Dry) they
never will unite, and mixing mortar
as now mixed and using it at once,
so as to dry it out and stop tho
formation that the mixing induced,
is wrong. SeU
