A UOOD MOVEMENT.
Dollar Subscription lleiug liaised to Sup
port a Cosmopolitan Life Boat
A movement is on foot among the British
born residents of Texas to secure funds for
the Royal National Life Boat institution of
London. Mr. Robert Amos, of the Texas
Express company, Dallas, is the leader of the
movement, and about $100 has already been
secured. Each subsctiber donates $1 no
more, no less, and the whole sum collected
will be used to put another life boat on the
English coast. A local committee, consisting
of Messrs. Kyder-Taylor, Chairman ; R C.
Symington and John Norcross has been
formed to receive the San Antonio subscrip
tion, and those who desire to contribute are
requested to address the Chairman Life
Hoat Fund Committee, PobtolTice Box 545,
The' Royal National Lile Hoat institution is
cosmopolitan in its action, and the following
extract from the last report shows the excel
lent work this society is doing :
The Royal National Lifeboat Institute n last
year saved, by means of its boats, 110 less than
884 poor fellows, who otherwise would have
perished. Since the last report nine new life
boats have been provided, and the number of
lileboats now under the institution is 373.
The total number of lifeboat launches during
the year, 231; lives saved, 741; and vessels
saved, 23 were saved from shipwreck by
shoreboats and other means, which had re
ceived rewards from the Institution, making
the total 0(884 lives rescued last year. The
number of lives saved during the 59 years
from the establishment or the Institution to
the end of the year 1883, either by its life
boats or by special exertions for
which it hat granted rewards, Is
29,608. Every onet must feel that
the saving of so many thousand lives from
drowning shows the absolute necessityof main
taining and extending the benevolent work of
the National Lifeboat Institution, which has
thus been productive of such noble results.
Unfortunately the brave services of the life
boat crews during the past year have not been
performed without loss of life. Three fatal
accidents occurred, resulting in the loss alto-
f;ethr of six lives. Each ol those poor men
elt a widow and children unprovided for, but
the committee granted to each widow the sum
ol $t,coo, or $6,000 in all, towards the local
subscriptions raised In behalf of the widows
and orphans. Last year 11 silver medals and
claps, 19 votes ol thanks inscribed on vellum
and nearly $16,000 were granted as rewards
for saving lives. Since the establishment of
the institution it lias vo'ed 96 gold medals,
962 silver medals and $374,000 in pecuniary
rewards for saving life from shipwreck. Dur
ing the year 1882 the receipts of the institu
tion, in donations, subscriptions and dividends
amounted to $225,585. The expenditure was
$183 830 Mr Charles Dibbin, F. R. G. S.,
is the able secretary of this institution.
The Cincinnati Commercial says : "There
is a very kindly feeling throughout the country
j'ust now toward President Arthur. lie has
conquered the prejudices of many people and
earned the respect of the average American
citizen. Now, ii he succeeds in harmonizing
the Republicans ol New York, and by rising
above faction he is in good shape to do it, the
political future may be fruitful for him."
