THE BRITISH COBDEN CLUB.
Bom rrwaniiMat Americana Who Belonged
A favorite argument of the high tariff
"pell bindora" during the lant presiden
tial campaign wm that the Cobdea club
of London wm expending vant iumi of
money In order to win the election for
Mr. Cleveland, who wa in favor of a re
duction in the present outrageous tariff.
Although the accusation afterward
turned out to be a beautiful example of
thoee who live in rIium hotivnt throwing
atones, vet many peojile in this country
have not a very clour ida of what the
Cohden club is and what are its objects.
The Cobdt-n club was founded in London
In 1W, the year afur Richard Cobden's
death. It objtct wat to mrutuute the
memory of the man whone name it bore
by propagating hU economic theories.
It motto is, "Free tnil peace and gotxl
will among the nations."
Every yeur tlio clul ptiblUhoa souie
work in furtliiTuin-o of thme principles.
It also awards mcdiils for the beat ensays
on any auljrt contiwtivl with political
economy to the HtU'lenU of vurious lead
fig onlUxt' throiigliout the world, in
cluding Yale and Harvard in this coun
try. Once n year tint mctulwr who may
happen to be in Iyndou at the date
fixed dine together, and the exMnses of
this dinni-r are paid out of the club
funds. With the exception of the year
1831, the annual income of the club has
never exceeded $1,",(X0. In that year a
special fund of $.1,800 wax contributed to
defray tlio cit of publishing a spocial
m-ries of works on ".Systems of Land
Teuure." The diturled relations of
landlord and tenant in Ireland at that
time railed for tlmt effort.
As tlio memncriip of tlio Cobdenclub
is almost entirely con lined to the classes
dubbed by high tariff orators in this
country "old fogies" and "college the
orists," it it not likely that much money
would come from that quarter. The late
James A. Garfield, the late Charles
Sumner, the late C P. Whipple and the
late Rev. Henry Ward Ileecher were
members of the CoMen club. At pres
ent its roll bears the names of George
Bancroft, Edward Atkinson and Hugh
John C f su-Uale on tha American Farmw.
The American farmer, although he
cultivates the most fertile soil in the
world, and ought to be the most prosper
ous tueoitx-r of the community, is con
stantly engaged in a hard struggle to
aecuro a comfortable suptort for his
family und a moderate education for his
children, and to pay his taxes and keep
out or debt, lhinnall be can reason
ably hope to arcoinplutli; in a large
majority of canes he fails even to do
this, and, sooner or later, is compelled to
mortgage his land and reduce his ex
ienditures to the lowest posHible figure.
He has a jxiternal government which
has determined that certain classes of in
dustry ought to be maintained at tli
public expense, and for tliirty years he
has been taxed for their support; and
now after these industries have become
rich and powerful, they combine and
confederate tinder the namee of trusts.

Io a recent sermon, the Rev. T. Dewitt
Talmsge prppounJtd the following
thoughts upon the newspaper: "I could
preach a whole sermon on the everlasting
blessing of a good newspaper. A good
newspaper is the grandest temporary
blessing that God has given to the people
of this country. In the first place all the
people read the newspapers, and the
newspapers furnish the greater propor
tion of the reading to the people. They
don't read books. The old people look
for the deaths, the young people the
marriages, the business men the business
and financial columns, and those who are
unemployed read the want advertises
meats. Great libraries make a tew intel
ligent men and women, but newspaper
lift the nation into the sunlight. My
Idea of a good newspaper is a mirror of
life Itself. Some people complain be
cause the evil of the world is reported as
well as the good. The evil must be re
ported as well as the good, or how will
we know what to guard against or what
to reform? There is a chance for dis
crimination as to how much space shall
be given to such things as prize tights,
but the newspaper that presents the fair
and the beautiful and the bright side of
ife is a misrepresentation. That family

AT THE THEATRE.
Mian ABf Herndon in "Li Helle
9Iarle"...The Fear Xla;hte'haw,
Miss Agnes Herndon, a lady possessed
of great dramatic ability, and with a
variety of versatile talent that enables her
to appear first as a sweet, light-hearted
country lass, and with little exertion
transforms herself into the cunning yet
vindictive French woman of the world,
with all the fire and desperation of a
woman whose one thought was to avenge
the wrong which had blighted her life,
made her first appearance at Harper's
theatre last evening. Tbe andience was
small, a fact due to tbe cold night and the
prevailing influenzt, no doubt, but all
who were there were of the meat appre
ciative mind naturally, and gave an en
thusiastic reception lo all tbe strong
points and climaxes of the lady's actiog,
and at the end of tbe fourth act tbe star
was called before the curtain .
Miss Herndon is a woman of splendid
appearance atd grace and is gifted in the
highest sense. She well merits the
plaudits she bss received everywhere.
The story of the play Is a good one and
interest in it does not Isg from first to
last. It tells of a young man, the younger
son of a wealthy merchant, who Is sup
posed to "go wrong." but his small fall
ings have only been magnified by an el
der trother, who thinks tbe handsome
youngster stands in his way. The elder
brother is, however, inveigled into a love
affair with a pretty young French woman,
who blackmails him, and through her the
worthy father finds that the son whom he
trusted wai unworthy, and the younger
born, whom be drove from bis home into
squallor and poverty, was in reality
the good one. Tbe dual role of "Jean
Ingleside" and of the French adventuress
"La Belle Marie," is assumed by Miss
Herndon, and the climax is brought about
when she throws off the disguise of the
French woman when her object is ac
complished, aud she reveals herself to
the treacherous "George Ligbton," who
has wroDged her. wronged his parents
and wronged his brother, as "Jean Ins
Bleside," the countiy girl of yore.
The support was generally poor,
though tbe "George Ingleside" of Mr.
Wm. Hatch was a floe interpretation of a
difficult role. The same play will be re
peated by Miss Herndon tonight, and no
one who attends will fail to acknowledge
tbe entertainment one of the best that
has appeared at Harper's this season.
There should be a large audience.
THE FLORENCE HAMILTON COM PAN T .
