IIouHea ol Ri'fuife-Good Intentions of
W'taun we iutrodutiid " Tbe Bitter Cry of
Outcast London" to tbe artention of the
Rreat public Ave yeat-s ago, we suggested one
thought which in never absent from our
mindH when xmf routed with the realities of
life in the " MunUen Sixth " of London.
"The prim Florentine might have added to
the horror of his vision -of hell by a sojourn
in a Loudon slum. For in 1: is Inferno the
damned at le 1st did wot breed. With us they
do. Every year sees an addition to the long
roll cC the new born list. Born in tbe fetid
atmosphere of a crowded cellar, suckled on
gin, and era lied in tho gutter, they never
have a chance."
The passag ) reverts to our memory as we
rend Dr. Bur mrdo's appoul in The Times for
the establishment of i-ilhiihI wards for chil
dren at the ei'-st end. The fute of the chil
dren is the cl mux of horror. The existence
of hundreds ami of thousands of -children
with no uthi-r.pureutri-e than women like
Riizuiieth St -ide !i;;d Annie Chapman and
Mary Ann Nichols, with no other homo than
the dossing Uen mid 110 other playground
thuti the gutter, that is the abiding and ap
'aliiii- tra;ctlyof the situation, beside which
all other iioinrs pain and disupjiear.
OR. BARN A It DO'S SCHEME.
Dr. Karnardo, in his letter to The Times,
diwi ibiug tl lives of the children, brought
ir, m the common lodging houses, saj s quit
truly thai it is inipoKsilile to descnlie the
stiite in whicu myriads of children live in
these human sewers, breathing from their
birth an nMit'isphere fatal to all goodness.
Tlicy are saturate 1 from their birch iu vice
mid all iinclei.iiuess, und Dr Harnardo in his
eal w ould forbid all lodging houses by law to
shelter .my i hildreu under Hi. Therein he
gixi tH far. Any of us may some day be
driven by poverty to seek the shelter of a
dossing Uen; and, even in our direst extrem
ity, we would not care to le separated from
But a great deal may be done short of legis
lative prohibit Ion. The first thing obviously
is to estublish, lodging houses for boys and
girls, if, as Dt. Barnardo says, they can be
mada'self supporting, or nearly so." We
confess that we have doubts as to the possi
bility of maki ig theee places self supporting.
Still Dr. Barn irdo is an authority second to
none, and we hoie he will explain how it can
be done. If 1 e can get out a practical plan
by which all t ie homeless lads and lasses of
London can lie lodged decently in places
where they would not tie contaminated by
the constant converse of prostitutes and
thieves, we do not think he will lack for
funds, supjiosi ig that the first cost of the
building is raised by a public subscription,
and the coppets of the children pay the work
One poor woman who may have been Eli
zabeth Stride Cerself , for she was in the cir
cle that listeuej to Dr. Barnardo's exposition
of the advant iges of his scheme, is said to
have exclaimed: "U e'reall up to no good,
and no oue car s what becomes of us. Per
haps some of m will be killed next! If any
body hud helps! the like of us long Ug0 we
would never hi.ve come to this." '-The likes
of us'' are mdi ed "up to no good" although
tho bishop of I edford does well to apeal for
a luundry to hi lp them earn a Living, if they
wish to do so lecently. But it is the chil
dren who offer thebest field for philanthropic
activity, and i i default of anything better
Dr. liarunrdo n scheme might well lie tried.
RESPONSIBILITY OF PARENTAGE.
Nothing wii; do any groat good that is
based on tho principle of taking children
from their pannt.s. If a man and a woman
are not fit to bt trusted with the upbringing
of their olrspri ig, they ought not to lie al
lowed te have any children. Sir. Arnold
White pleads for "the sterilization of the un
lit," but tho plain Knghsh of it-is that tho
human pair who bring a child into the world
for whom they cannot provide food, clothes
and lodging a e criminals, and should be
punished as such. Tho immense responsibil
ity of parenta ;e can only be borne by par
ents. It cauuot be thrust upon the state.
That has been tried oi'ten euough, with no
other result tha i that of organizing iufanti
The existing foundling hospitals in Rus
sia, for instance nre simply massacre shops
for nearly one-h ilf their luck less inmates. It
sounds excellent and philanthropic and al
together admirable that the state snould un
dertake the mothering and fathering of those
children whose own parents are unfit or in
capable, but it -rould really be kinder to le
gaiizo infanticide sans phrase. It is true,
that baby killing has ceased to be regarded
us murder in London, but we have not yet ar
rived at tbe point where the state can deli
berately decree the extinct ion of the hfeeven
of the rickettiest infant born in an East eud
Under the reign of scieuco and evolution,
and the decay of the old theological bolts and
bars against hon icido, we may come to that,
but as yet the old religion, with its concep
tion of the soul, is still sm'.iciently jiotent to
forbid tho direct road billowed by the an
cients. Nowadn .-s infanticide to be respect
able must be circuitous. The question today,
however, is not Low to kill, but how to save
alivo. And ttie public, for a moment con
science stricken i.t the s!ctacle of how tbe
poor live, will gladly co-operate wtto Dr.
Barnardo, if be can utilize his vast experi
ence so as to help in establishing a self sup
porting, decent d jssing ken for tbe homeless
children of Ix:idou. Pall Hall Gazette.
No I p Year in 1900.
Although the year 1900 will be divisible by
four without a remainder, it will not be leap
year. Twelve ye at must elapse before the
interesting event takin place, but it was just
the same in 1S00 1 ud r.G:, but not in 1600, for
that was a leap year, and the 2000 will be a
leap year also. Why this should be is a prob
lem. To explain iu detail would be a tire
some tusk, but it :-ests on tbe principle that a
difference of cloven minutes er day exists
between actual cir.ie uud calendar time.
Thus a year is cot iputed at 365) days, three
years being 3ti3 days long and the fourth
year iM'i days. In fact the year is 305
days, 5 hours mid 4." minutes long, or
11 minutes short of ot5A' days. Tbe
leap year every four years is said
to have been an invention of Julius
Caesar. To allow .'or this difference of eleven
minutes per year, one leap year was dropped
every hundred yiars. But this was found
uot to be exact, and Pope Gregory XIII, in
1502, made an improvement and decreed that
every fourth centi.riol year should be a leap
year. Thus, by omitting the leap year for
tbreo centurinl yen rs and letting it remain as
usual on tbe fourth ceuturi&l year, a system
is obtained so close that it would - take thou
sands of years to 11a Ice up another day's dif
ference in time. The calendar time is still
not exact mathematically, but as no change
will be necessary lor 4,000 years, it will not
fall to the share of tbe present generation to
correct the discrepiuicy. Italeigu Kows.

IS HE PRINCE OR COMMONER?
A Queation That la Troubling the Royal
Lawyers of Sweden.
London, Jan. i9. A question involving
great legal difficulties has arisen in Sweden.
When Prince Oscar married Miss Munk, bis
mother's maid of honor, last summer, he
wai obliged to resign his claim to the crown
and to royalty. Now tbe question arises
whether be is to be treated as a royal or a
civic personage. Tbe king has appointed
him govarnor of a province with royal
rights, and it is asserted that according to
the laws of Sweden this act is not lawful
The question also involves Prince Oscar's
allowance from the publio money as the
king's son. Tbe settlement of this legal point
is regarded with great interest

Lynch Got Three This Time.
Memphis, Tenn., Jan. 19. It is reported
that a lynching took place at Tiptouville,
about 100 miles up tbe river from this place.
It is an isolated backwoods locality and the
details are Very meager. From what can
be gathered, however, tbe son of a widowed
mother married a Miss Atchison and the
mother objected to the match. Domestic
troubles ensued, and 011 Christmas day the
old lady, whose name can not be learned,
was found murdered, her throat having been
cut from ear to ear. Tbe son, bis wife, and
father in-law were suspected, and Thursday,
it is sai 1, the three were lynched by tbe in

agency of this city, on the charges of eon
spiracy to arrest the H it fields. The war
rants were taken out before a $qnre in
Logan county, a relative of Hatdel 1. The
object is said to be to give the Hatfields a
chance to escaiie. Detective Cunningham,
whom the Halholds decoyed nnd locked up
some days ago, bad a bearing yesterday and

feared that great trouble will grow out of
