MONDAY, OCT. 12, 1885.
Hon. John Bingham, ex-United
Stales Minister to Japan, is quoted
as saying: "1 tried to arrange a
treaty of commerce between the
United Stales and Japan seven years
ago. The treaty was drawn Up and
it was the only decent commercial
treaty that had ever been offered to
Japan, bill before it was signed the
European powers heard of it. Ger
many and England sent their ngents
and their gunboats to Japan. The
ngents called upon the foreign minis
ters there, and pointing down to the
harbor they remarked : 'Do you seo
those gunboats lying there? Well,
by all the Powers those gunboats
represent we forbid you to conclude
any treaty with the United States of
America until treaties have first
been arranged with our Govern
ments. Thereafter the Foreign
Minister called upon me with the
draft of the treaty I had proposed,
but with another clause added pro
viding that this treaty shall not take
effect until similar treaties have
' been entered into with the European
Powers. 1 asked what the meaning
of that was, and the Minister, point
ing to the ironclads in the harbor,
said he was afraid to offend the
European Powers. Seven years
have elapsed and not a European
Power who then interfered lias pro
posed any such treaty as America
and Japan were then asked to wait
for. 1 steadfastly refused to join
the Powers in their outrageous treat
ment of Japan. I believed it would
not be in accord with the policy of
Washington, 'Friendship with all
nations, entangling alliance with
none.' 1 told the President the
other day the story 1 now tell you,
only not'so fully. He approved my
conduct all tliiough, and is going to
continue the policy of George
The great socialist meeting in
London, from which serious dis
turbances were feared by the autho
. ritics, came off without mishap. A
London despatch says of it: "The
socialist meeting comprised -10,000
persons, but was quiet and orderly.
The police were deployed in small
groups and kept themselves hidden
as much as possible, bo as not to in
flame the mob. The socialists first
assembled at Lime House yard, the
scene of last Sunday's light. The
selection of this spot was in plain
defiance of the orders of the police
and Homo Secretary, but the socia
lists did no more thau assemble
there and then adjourned, and moved
in procession to a. strip of waste
land along the docks, where the
formal meeting was held and speeches
delivered. A special place was al
lotted to reporters, who were present
in large numbers, in expectation of
a riot. On the way to the docks
the procession passed the police de
pot and this was the only time dur
ing the day when the outlook be
came at all serious. Banners were
waved defiantly in the faces of the
policemen, and there was some hoot
ing, but the socialist leaders worked
strenuously to keep order, and their
efforts, with the forbearance of the
k constables, suUlced to preserve the
peace. The speeches delivered at
the meeting were not very inflam
matory. Some of the speakers de
nounced the authorities for attempt
ing to stifle free speech, and a reso
lution denouncing the police was
adopted. There was much enthu
siasm, but on the whole the assem
blage was as orderly as any meeting
of equal size ever held in London.
Major Trotter, a military attache
of the British Legation at Constan
tinople, and Mr. Fawcett, the Eng
lish Consul-Gcneral, have returned
from Uoumelia. They narrate that
on their arrival at Philippopolis they
were arrested. After having an in
terview with Prince Alexander, they
were blind-folded, escorted to the
frontier and left in an open field at
nightfall in a carriage. They wan
dered about for several hours, and
finally reached the tent of a pasha,
who treated them well and for
warded them to Constanstinople.

PINEAPPLES IN FLORIDA.
Governor Gleason predicts tlmt
the pineapple crop of Florida will
soon he more impoitant than the
orange. One of the hest things, he
says, about the pineapple crop is
that the common scrub and palmetto
lands of South Floiida seem just
suited to it. Hummock land is not
adapted to the growth, as it pro
duces too much plant and inferior
fruit, while the scrub land piodticos
just the reverse. Plants sot out hist

THE undersigned, a Committee of Di

Board on the advantages oflere'd by the
Society to the public, rcpoit:
1st The Society issues all the approv
ed forms of insurance, including Ordi
nary Life, Ei dowment and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to the Directors
which form of policy is tnken by in
2d The Life and Endowment foims
of policy provide for annual cash divi
dends and a surrender value; aie Indis
putable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
3d The premiums on a Tontine po
licy nro tho same as on the Ordinary
Life, but, while the latter is only pay.
able in the event of death, the holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of tho reserve and the accu
mulated profits in cash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years aie past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that the return
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licics approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums pnid by policy
holders, so that the average cost of the
assurance will bo only about tho interest
on the premiums.
Sth Tontine policies, like others, are
paid in full in the event of death at any
time during tho term of tlio policy, and
are incontestable after three years, and
payable immediately after due proof of
0th Experience shows that the raor.
tallty is lower among Tontine policy,
holders, ns the better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is a consider
able source of profit.
7th Tontine policies will be made
non-forfeitablo under tho laws of tho
State, if so desired at the time the as
surance is effected.
8fh Tho Tontino system is fair, nnd
just; its accounts nro accurately kept,
separato from all other business ; the
funds judiciously invested and improv

fully guarded and pioperly iippoitloncd.
