Mit. O rtis, in his letters from
Japan to the Chicago Record lays
much stress upon the fact that the
manufacturers of this country have
neglected the trade of Japan and
missed golden opportunities. There
has been a lack of commercial daring
on the part of the American trader.
This country buys from Japan four
times as much as it sells to it, while
Great Britain sells to that country
four times as much as it buys from
it. When American firms establish
branches and agents in Japanese
cities and become acquainted with
the people Inhere will be a change.

The defiant attitude of the corrupt
legislature of Illinois in refusing to
permit an investigation of the
charges of bribery ani boodle, and
adjourning with the stigma upon its
name of having betrayed the people's
sacred trust, is the sensation of the
hour throughout the country, and
the shame that has been brought
upon the fair state of Illinois is felt
by every honest and loyal citizen
within its borders, regardless of po
litical preferment. It is undoubted
ly the most outrageous, unblushing
and notorious piece of rascality ever
committed in any s'ate.
Here is the resolution which Col.
Merriam tried to have passed by the

Whereas, His excellency, the gov.

Times-Herald, the Chicago Evening
Post, the Peoria Journal and the pub
lic press of both political parties
generally throughout the state have
repeatedly and openly made charges
that state officers, the members of
the present general assembly in gen
eral, and in some cases individual
members thereof, had been guilty of
dishonesty and boodling and at
tempted bribery or blackmail, there
fore be it
Kesolved. That the governor,
John P. Altgeld, the editors of the
Chicago Times-Herald, Evening Post,
Peoria Journal and all others be re
quested to appear without delay be
fore the bar of this house and pre
sent any and all evidence of corrup
tion on the part of any state officer
or any member of the legislature, if
any such evidence they have.
And the lower branch of the legis
lature, with a republican majority,
refnsed to pass it.
What a record, indeed!
The North American Review for
Augnst contains an article on "Leo
XIII and the Social Question1 by
the Rev. J. A. Zahm, professor of
physics at the University of Notre
bame, Indiana. A unique interest
attaches itself to this particular con
tribution, it having formed the sub
ject of a conversation between his
Holiness and Fr. Zahm, the. Pope

the management of this popular
monthly commemorates its entry on
the 11th year of publication by a re
duction in price to $1 a year, this
move has been made without cheap
ening the magazine in any sease.
Indeed, if anything, it has been im
proved. The table of contents is an
interesting study," the subjects dis
cussed being timely and attractive
as well as diversified enough to meet
the most exacting popular demand
for light literature. Home and

"Hawthorne as an Interpreter of
New England" is the subjeet of an
article of unusual keenness and inter
est by Miss Katharine Millard in the
August number of the New England
Magazine. Hawthorne's subjects
were in very great measure New
England subjects. Salem and Con
cord and Boston were constantly the
scenes of his stories, and he was a
great dclver into colonial and revo
lutionary history. It is common to
think and talk of him as an interpre
ter of New England history and life.
Miss Iiillard's contention is that he
was not this in any true sense at all,
and that he did not pretend to be,
but simply made the New England
ground bis starting point for ro
mancing and for general study of
human life and character. Her
points are exceedingly well made,
and it is probable that Hawthorne
himself would have warmly sympa
thized with all that she says. "
The supreme significance of the
fact that the United States has be
come the foremost iron producing
country of the world, the necessity
for an 'output of 11,000,000 tons of

as against 7,000,000 tons in 189:5.
and 6.600.000 tons in 1S94. and the
strong probability that we shall have
to build 100,000 mile of railroads
during the next 15 or 20 years to
complete the systems now in opera
tion these are the central features
of an important leading artiele by
Edward Atkinson in the Engineering
Magazine for Augnst. Aside from
Mr. Atkinson's high standing as an
economist and statistician, double in

1880 he made a similar forecast,
which has been fulfilled with astrt

der the rapid evolution of this art,
that one welcomes a careful discus
sion of the subject by so trained a
mind and so clever a writer as Mrs.

cle with a series of poses by profes

more dangerous than was ever ex

exploited in the same issue in a arti

by te appearance in this number of
