FARMERS FIGHT UNDER FLAG.
LIMA. Ohio, December 1. Unliving

two hundred Allen county farmers,
armed with picks nnd shovels, fought
off a construction gang of tho Chicago
& Krio Ilailway Company, and refilled
a grado crossing cut near here, undoing
work whicr had cost the railroad
thousands of dollars. The clash was
a result of tho railroad's Tefusal to
keep the highway open whllo a bridge
across tho Erie double-tracking wns in
tho course of construction. Blood
flowed freely in the fight between tho
farmers and tho railroad laborers, although
no ono wns seriously hurt.

Bishop Restarick Writes of the
Splendid Work Done By
Them in Honolulu.
Editor Tho Advertiser: I ask for
spaco to answer a letter appearing In
Tho Advertiser, l)cceinber S, signed
"A Mother." In tho tint placo she
asks tho question, why girls committed
to the industrial school should lio allowed
to go to work In the hoinei of approved
families. Mr. Cathcart, the
prosecuting attorney in tho McCorriston
trial, stnted tho caso admirably. Ho
spoke ns follows:
" tho Girls' Industrial School a
large numhor of young girls, as they
grow to more maturity, or as their
physical strength develops, it is necessary
that they cam their living, and
that Is done by securing places in families.
They nro nllowed out to vrork
in these families as servants, and they
nro still, so to spoak, wards of tho Ter
ritory. It would be impossible, or u
not impossible it would bo very detrimental
to retain in thoso schools tho
girls until they reach the age of eighteen
when In physical strength nnd maturity
they are able to earn their own
"When tlieso girls go out as servants
in this way they should bo
from molestation. They should
bo just as free from all tho attentions
of men ns though thoy had remained
in tho school. That can only
bo nossible bv it helnir understood
generally throughout tho community
nnd imiiiahinent innv be meted to him
in proportion to his offense. Vlicn
this is uudorstood distinctly throughout
the community those girls who, ns

which Is sent to enrry hopa to

nnd to uplift children, this littlo
sum is begrudged. Nationally, $12,-000,000
would bo n drop in tho bucket
nnd tho half of it (suggested liy "A

It should bo remembered also that
the money sent out of tho country for
foreign missions is returned, m.inyfold,
in an inereiising ratio by tho foreign
trade which is nlwnys oponod np where
missionaries go. Such trade was opened
up In Contrnl Africa by Livingstone
nnd in many other places by tho hnroes
of tho Cross.
""" What "Half" Would Mean.
But how much did Honolulu gjvo Uat

boards for foreign nusslonsl Tho Hawaiian
board reports, not for Honolulu
nlono, but for all tho Islands, $980.50
for foreign missions. Tho Episcopal
Church sent to tho board in Now York,
f13S0. but as hnlf of this goes to domestic
missions, wo can count only $G00 for
forclmi missions. Now. say thnt tho
Methodist and Christian churrhrs of
this city gnvo $500, which T bellaro is
moro than wna actually givon, this
will glvo n total of $2170.50. Now, a
half of that would build ono eottago of
