Editoii BtM.ETiN : As tho Min
ister of Financo is roported in tho
legislative proceedings to bo in
favor of honest criticisms, I beg
leavo to rofor to his oft-ropeated
and wholesale romark that per
sons in govornmoiit employ are
hotter salaried than those in private
without producing his measure of
rating. Does ho mean that por
sons in privoto positions who do
more work, with moro respon
sibilities at tlioir back, got less
pay ? 1 tako it that ho does not
rofor to tho salaries of tho Presi
dent and Judges of tho higher
courts, for tho Constitution pro
hibits any diminution of tho same.
Then it must bo that tho olorks
and others in public offices aro
comparatively too woll paid. Min
ister Damon, I believe, now re
quires daily reports from heads of
bureaus of his dopnrtment which
no Minister has hitherto remiircd.

Miss Kato Field
audience for her
lecture on I
Cltnrjos DiekoiiB at Knumakapili
church Inst night. Tho locturo
was preceded by nn instrumental
trio consisting of W. L. Fletcher
on the lnrgo organ, B. L. Marx on
tho violin and Wray Taylor on
tho violoncello. J. B. Atherton
introduced tho lecturer in words
substantially as follows: "Miss
Fiold does not need a formal in
troduction to this nudionco. Sho
is already woll-known to our pub
lic by her letters to tho American
people. From what I have seen
of press notices of America and
England I feel sure that Miss
fiold is quite ablo to ontorlain
Miss Field on coming forward
at onco sniled into her Bubject.
Hor lecture was a woll-jointed
discussion, with happy illustra
tions, of Dickons tho actor, dra
matist, journalist, novelist, morry
makor, walker, friend, letter
writer; of his household words,
fancies, style; as a poet; of Dick
ons's children, animals, women,
Christianity, homo at Gad's Hill
and, as tho pororution, his grave
in Westminster Abbey. Miss
Field in the course of tlio lecture
recited tho "Hymn of tho Wilt
shire Laborers." - To report in
full hor treatment of nny of
tho subdivisions of hor subject
would lako up more Bpaco than is
Tho lecture ns a whole was a
finished production in fino litorn
ry stylo. Miss Field is nn accom
plished olocutidnist, having ilrn-
I nintic power and magnetism in n
j Idyll degree. . Unfortunately , Inst
night sho did not gauge tho size
I of tho church accurately, hor voice
i being pitched so low that,for a great
deal of the lecture, many of the
audionco had only tho enjoyment
of tho rhythmic music of her do
livery, being unable to catch tho
i sense oL passages connectedly.
Craning necks and bauds to cars
for hearing trumpets proved this
to bo tho case, accounting for tho
paucity of appreciation by ap
plause noted by tho morning
"When Dickons vanished from
tho garish lights of St. James,
London," said tho lecturer, "Eng
land lost hor greatest actor, hho
dilated upon tho naturalness of
Dickons's dialogue, instancing
"Nicholas Nickloby" as a loading
example. His last eutortninment
was at private theatricals a weok
before his death. Great genius
means great good sense, and groat
good boiiso means great industry,
Tho price of success is industry.
Tho first tho lecturer ovor heard
of Dickons wns his great industry
in making parliamentary reports.
Ho believed in rewarding tho in
dustry of othors. When ho bo
camo o master as editor instead
of a slavo . in journalism
ho novor lowered salaries. Miss
Fiold trusted that if ovor the press
of tho United States started a
nowspapor workers' fund it would
bo in tho namo of Charles Dick
ons. (Applauso.) Ho came to
America first to promote u copy
right law. Up till I860 they in
tho United Statos wero nothing
but literary pirates.
What Dickens know he knew;
what ho didn't know ho novor at
tempted. His lovo of games was
intense. Ho drow up articles of
agrooment for a walking match
between an Amorican and an
Englishman, His walking pro
pensities wore unlimited, his usual
daily tramps being ton miles. It
was estimated that ho walked 140,
000 miles in forty years. Tho
naturalness of his characters was
illustrated. In composing ho re
joiced with those who rejoiced and
wept with tlioso. who wopt. His
grentest work, "A ,Talo of Two
ities," as a record of tho reign
of terror deserved to bo placed
bosido Carlylo's incomparable
description. "Mrs. Nickloby sat
in front of mo in u solid chair,
and actually asked mo if I thought
there wns ovor such a woman."
(Laughtor.) In making a plea
for tho proprieties of fancy, Miss
Field archly asked if nnybody be
lieved in "A Midsummer Night's
Walter Snvatre Lnndor said the
style of Di ken.-, was got from tho
New Testumont. Locklinrt toM .,,
Dickens ho would go ujT'IikgTHTJJ
r. nKkut and enmo down like the
stick, to which tho great author
replied: "Woll, I'll wait till tho
stick comes down and then
break it over your shouldors."
His description of Little Nollio's
funeral in "Old Curiosity Shop"
was cited in illustration of the
proposition that some of Dickons's
proso was liko blank verse.
Speaking of his devotion to anim
ated nature especially children,
Miss Field remarked in an nudi
blo asido, assho brushed off her
brow a malicious little cannibal,
"Ho novor could havo admired
Tho scarcity of references to
wouion by Dickens was remarked
as a feature of Shakespeare. It
was to bn remembered that the
sphere of woman was narrow.
BiU Dickens in drawing oven base
subjects mado much of female
character. Ho had burly
Bill Sykes say, "Women
can always put things in tho
fairest words." Ho had nover
drawn a thoroughly bad woman
character. Nancy Sykes' vice was
but an excess of virtue. If more
women wero loss subject to temp
tation and moro liko Dickons,
thoro would bo less characters
liko Nancy Sykes in tho world.
Some said that Dickons was nw
Christian, that ho drjjjjHvHl re
ligion in tho inivo. '"Tho lecturer
rebutted this charge by citing
with npt illustrations the sincority
of good purpose in Dickons's
works. Whon religion wont
wrong it wns very wrong. "Is
that man no Christian who spoilt
all his life trying to elovntc
humanity? Jf Ohntlorf- Dickons
bo a heathen, lot us all be
heathon!" (applauso.) .
M iss Field closed with a bril
liant reference to tho tomb of
Dickens in Westminster Abboy,
surrounded by tho grout men m
rank and deeds who had preceded
hiin to that valhnlln. As tho
audionco rotired Mr. Taylor play
ed "Hawaii Ponoi."
