Iii portant Decision.?The attorney
general of New York has written an
opinion on the power of the general
government to send the militia of one
state to the territory of another, which
will be read with interest in the light <>;
the recent incidents at Chicago. T.:e
opinion was in answer to a cotumur.ici
tion containing the question: "Is a
member of the national guard liable to
be failed and compelled to go outside
of his own Stale to do military duty ?"
Attorney (J.-neral Hancock wiites :
''The Supreme Court of the United
States has decided that it belongs ex?
clusively to the 1'resident to judge and
determine when the exigency arises in
which be has the authority to call forth
militia of any or all states, and that his
decision iu such case is conclusive as to
all other persons.
??It would seem that the President may Is?
sue his order in calling forth the militia to
such officers thereof a> he may think proper,
although we might expect that such orders
would i-sue as an act of discretional courtesy
to the commander-in-chief. I am not aware
that the authority of the Stale to punish for
military offences committed by its own citi?
zen soldiers within the State's boundaries has
been denied by our lourts. But recent events
have shown "that a doubt exists in many
minds as to tho power of the State and of the
United States to repel the militia of a given
State to go beyond its borders for active scr?
vice and to punish for refusal, without lawful
excuse, to do so.
'"But it has been decided by the Supreme
Court of the United States that a member of
the national guard of the State of Pennsyl?
vania who relumed, without lawful cxetl.se. 10
report for duty, and to render service in obe?
dience to a call from th& President, maybe
punished as a court martial may direct.''
Seeing by Electricity.?Profefsar
Alexander Graham Bell is spending
these months at his summer place in
Nova Scotia, encaged iu a series of in?
vestigations which will no doubt have
important and perhaps sensational re?
sults. His outdoor work is devoted to
experiments iu ''aerial navigation," in
connection with Professor Langley, of
Smithsonian Institution, while in his
laboratory he is endeavoring to demon?
strate a problem to which he has given a
great deal ot thought, and in which lie
thoroughly believes. It is to harness
electricity to light, as it has beeu har?
nessed to sound, so that the people may
be abb* to see a great distance, just as
the telautograph enables them to write
and the telephone enables them to
speak at a great distance. Professor
Bell firmly believes that it will he pos?
sible some day to see from Washington
to New York as easily as one can con?
vey the souud of the voice that distance.
He insists that the fact has already
been demonstrated and that it only re?
mains to construct the apparatus neces?
sary to bring the possibilities of the dis?
covery into actual and practical use.
This is exceedingly difficult?much
more difficult than the construction of
the telegraph instrument or the tele?
phone, for the reason that the vibra?
tions of light are so much more rapid
than the vibrations of souud. But Pio
fesor Bell is confident th it he will soon
oe able to discover a diaphragm suffi?
ciently sensitive to receive the vibra?
tions of light and produce the effect
uecessary to convey the impressions to
the human vision.?Chicago Record.
Cost of Living in Europe.?Rail?
way fares, unless one travels iu slow
trains and miserably in third-class cars,
are more expensive in Europe than in
the I'uited States, and the accommoda?
tion is inferior. For a sleeping-car
berth from Paris to Is'ice one pays $1S ;
in America ore may travel trotn New
York to Chicago, a greater distance, iu
a sleeping car for $?">. Eife[in good Eu?
ropean hotels costs as much as it does
iu good hotels in America. Servants'
wages are lower there, but experience
proves that one good American servant
doe-the work of two Europeans, and
does it more simply and neatly. The
real difference iu favor of Europe is
that one may. if one chooses, adjust the
standard of living to one's income.
Economy is respected in Europe and is
considered respectable, whereas iu
America this is not always the case. Iu
Europe eveu people of considerable
means may live simply and economize
in a way that at home would excite
