A CURIOUS QUESTION.
A shoit timo ago wo refcrrcrl to
the Aiolcnl dispute soinc on in
Central America as to the last rest
ing place of Columbus, San Domingo
and Cuba being the claimants for
this honor. A solemn conclave of
the representatives of various gov
ernments meet on September 10th in
San Domingo to settle the matter;
but meanwhile another discussion
has been raised, the question this
time being whether Columbus ever
set foot on the American continent
at all. It was commonly believed,
and is stated in most modern histo
ries, that the great navigator in his
fourth and last voyage landed on
the coast belonging to the present
republic of Honduras. Three years
ago Don Soto, the President of the
republic, desired to commemorate
this great event by creating a new
administrative district at the place
and calling it Colon. But he deter
mined ill st to look into the original
authorities himself, and having done
so, found reason to doubt the accu
racy of the popular belief on the
subject. Having communicated his
doubts to Don Milla, a learned Gua
temalan, who has written a history
of Central America, in which he re
produces the usual statement, the
latter re-examined all the documents
of the time, and came to the conclu
sion that an error had arisen through
a misrepresentation of a single pas
sage in an old chronicler, and that
Columbus ically never lauded on the
continent. The passage occurs in
Herrara, and is as follows: "On
August 14th the Adelantado, with
many of his crew, landed in order
to hear mass." Don Milla is now
clear that the Adelantado here re
ferred to was Bartholomew, Colum
bus's eldest brother, and not Christ
opher himself, who thus appears,
like another proses, to have viewed
the piomiscd land from afar his
Pisgah being the deck of his vessel
without being permitted to set foot
on it. St. James' Gazette.

THE undersigned, a Committee of Di
rectors ot the Equitable Life As
surance Society of the United States,
appointed to formulate the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by the
Society to the public, report:
1st The Society issues all the approv
ed forms of assurance, including Ordi
nary Life, Ei dowment and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to the Directors
which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi.
dends and a surrender value; arc Indis
putable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
3d Tho premiums on a Tontine po
licy are tho same as on tho Ordinary
Life, but, while the latter is only pay.
able in the event of death, tho holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
the whole of tho reserve and tho accu.
mulatcd profits in cash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years aic past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that tho return
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount 'of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho average cost of the
assurance will bo only about the interest
on the premiums.
Sth Tontine policies, like others, are
paid In full in tho event of death at any
time during' the term of tho policy, and
ate incontestable after three years, and
payable immediately after due proof of
flth Experience shows that tho mor.
tnllty is lower among Tontine policy,
holders, as the better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is a consider,
able- bource of profit.
7th Tontine policies will bo made
non-forfcitablo under the laws of the
State, if so desired at the time the as
suranco is effected.
8th Tho Tontine system is fair and
just; its accounts nre accurately kept,
separato from all other business; tho
funds judiciously Invested and improv.
cd, nnd tho accumulated profits faith
fully guarded and properly appoitloned.
Dili The Society has since its organ!
.at ion transacted a larger amount of
now business than any other company,
while its now business for the first Jiulf
of the present year is $1,700,000 lurger
than that of tho first half of 1881. It
