Evert little ward politician or country

The several states are making more or
less intelligent attempts to perfect their
marriage laws. The idea kept in view
is to throw no obstacle in the way of
marriage and at the same time not to
open the way to deceptions which may
invalidate ceremonies entered into bv
either party in eood faith. The Irgisla
ture of Ohio recently tmsnded the mar'
riage laws of the state by requiring a
public ceremony in the presence of a
clergyman or public officer as an indis
pensable condition of entering the mari
tal state. The discovery has already
been made that this requirement, which
seems so reasonable, has on more than
one occasion been the means cf decep
tion. In one case the person who was
supposed to be a clergyman was not a
clergyman at all. As the new law
makes no provisions for such deceptions
a couple who sirppofcd they were law
fully married find that they are not. Of
course, it is possible to have the cere
mony repeated if both parties are willing,
but if ei'.her party was a party
to the deception the presumption would
be that he or she, as the case might be.
would raise obiections to a valid cere
mony. In 2scw York the law declares
legal any ceremony to which both par
ties assent to the extent of giving re
sponses indicative of their intention at
that ceremony to become husband
and wife. The number of "widows"
who have recently appeared to claim an
interest in estates that they could show
no other title to than that of widow has
rather turned the tide of opinion against
laws which give legality to a secret cere
mony. The weight of opinion, the Sin
Francisco Call holds, is that the marriage
ceremony should he performed and wit
nessed under conditions which wouid pre
vent a conspiracy to cheat kgul heirs cut
of a portion of an estate.

HE LANDS WHERE THE PILGRIMS
ARRIVED SOME TIME AGO.
This Leade to Historical and Other Com
ment A Brief but Touching Comment
on a Bank Cashier Who Looked Tpon
Hits with Suspicion.
(Copyright, 1891. by Edgar W. Nye.J
Plymouth, Mass. Here on this his
toric ground the Pilgrims first landed
on the shores of the New World. Here
began the colony which has grown, un
der the blessings of heaven, to be a
prosperous and self supporting nation.
Plymouth, 6ince the landing of the Pil
grims, has grown to be quite a place.
Busu ess has picked up and trade is more
activo. In thos two centuries and a
half what changes have been wrought!
Hous-js have been built, stones which in
terfered with farming have been picked
np and placed on some other man's farm,
trees have been cut down, meeting
houses have been built and the improve
ment is noticeable everywhere.
THINKING OF THE MAYFLOWER.
If the growth of Plymouth has been
so great in two hundred and fifty rears,
what may we not expect in two thou
sand years? New goods will be put into
the stores, no doubt, new cars put on on
the railroad, and new fresh air into the
cars, real estate will advance to unheard
of pri:es and farms will many of them
be resxlded at great expense.
Looking back now upon the broad and
liberal platform npon which the Pilgrim
Parents erected their altar for the wor
ship .f a Colonial God. I am not sur
prised that they succeeded. It is true
that t ley were in some respects severe.
They allowed themselves lew methods
of relf xation aside from the contempla
tion of a superheated hell for those who
disagreed with Them. They even de
nied t lemselves the pleasures of a prayer
rug, preferring to suffer certain depriva
tions publicly in order to get good
The Pilgrim was a queer mixture of
iron endurance, patient industry and
pious pifrheadedness. I caw yesterday
the pand at Cohasset wherein these
devoutmen drowned their witches, and
the public square in which they burned
them also. Will not the generations
of two hundred years hence possibly
see where we, too, have been over
ze.ilous, hidebound and intolerant? Of
course we joke the Pilgrim now regard
ing li s mistaken zeal in burning old
people by means of green birch wood,
which is a poor fuel and apt to tpoil
the be-t job of roasting that we can im
agine, but supposing that your eas;le eye
had discovered that your own mother
sbowe 1 feigns of being a witch. Most
anyboly would resent the burning of
his nuther, if she had been a kind and
obedient mother. 1 suppose that there
can b-; nothing more painfnl than to
stand jy and see one's mother burned at
the st; ke. Especially is this the case if
one sh mid resent it and write a pioce
reg:irUin it, and then either rind it
marke 1 "communicate1." or thrown r.r.t
The result has been in Massachusetts.
1 believe, that in tiie past 100 years
there has been more liberality than
almost anywhere else a sort of reaction
from t'le fcpirit which led to the use of
the baed old lady where now the lai;ed
bean is found to be far superior.
Plytiouth is beautifully situated (so
also is Scituate)anl in summer is a very
popular place for the flannel covered
health seeker of the bargain counter, as
well as the overworked but purse proud
newspaper man. You would hardly be
lieve t.iat the fishing and hunting were
still gxl around Plymouth after the
growth of 230 years, but they are said to
be so, and within the past ten years at
least 100 deer have been killed within a
few miles of where the Pilgrims landed.
That shows that Plymouth has been a
quiet t awn. See what Chicago has done
in one-fifth of that time, and without
braggi ng over iteither. No matter what
Chicago does she is never boastful. Chi
cago lets her work show for itself. That
is wha- Chicago sees most to admire and
applau 1 in herself.
Attached to Plymouth is a very enjoy
able h irbor, which has not materially
changed since the deck hands of the
Mayflower, with that painful delibera
tion wiiich in arks the efforts of the deck
hand who does not swear, made fast the
gallant but poorly ventilated little crafL
In fane y, now, I see the Mayflower tack
ing to and fro, and moving toward
Plymouth Rock, where she had adver
tised to make a landing. As 1 look over
the plajid bay with half closed eyes I
Beem t' see, as the boat gets nearer, the
faces o: those whose children are so soon
to be successful and point back , with
fride t these parents who 6tand npon
the dec ks of the Mayflower.
Let is look for a moment at these
fathers and mothers of the future aris
tocracy of America. Here is one of them
engage 1 in holystoning the deck.
His haj-gard face shows how hard it has
been fc r him to be a sailor in rough
weather and under adverse circum
stances without the nse of plug tobacco
or prof inity. Here is another head of
a grea American, family line. He is
just going aloft to close reef the scupper
boom on the off side. But wh:it is this
he has with him? - Ah, now I see, as the
boat gets nearer I am able to distinguish
more clearly. It is a bright new jag. It
is in honor of she successful trip.
Many others are now seen to be on the
deck. All of them need complete change
of scene and linen. They could not any
of them get a chance today to sleep in
the coachman's annex on the grounds of
their swollen descendants, nor. on any
other grouuds perhaps. The whole boat
needs airing and so do the passengers.
And yet they are the heads of what will
some day be the hyphenated but bilious
aristocracy of this timid and shrinking
Clark's island is where the Pilgrims
spent their first Sabbath, holding an all
day service and forming a Bible class of
aged Indians who had not seen a Bible,
a bathtub or a backslider during the his
tory of the country. Some 6ay that they
had never seen anybody burned at the
6take till the Pilgrims came, but that I
heard at Cape Cod, which is jealous of
Plymouth and also trying to get np a
boom on Buzzard's Bay.
On the left hand side of the street if
you go as I did 1 do not know which is
east and west in Plymouth but on the
left hand side if you go along the street
as I did, and on your right, of course, if
you come the other way, you will see a
rough granite building with Doric col
umns and a portico to it. It reminds
me of a Greek temple which 1 once
lived in while in Europe acquiring that
polish which is so noticeable in my man
ner and carriage since I came back. It is
more noticeable in my carriage, I think,
than anywhere else.
This is Pilgrim hall. It is not the
first and original Pilgrim haul, but we
will not dwell on that. Before entering
let ns wipe our feet carefully on the
grass at the roadside iu order to avoid
unnecessary wear on the scraper at the
Upon the pediment of the porch you
will see a fine allegorical group in dem'i
relief representing the landincr of the
Pilgrims. One of the Adamses is just
stepping ashore with a spiral cane and a
concordance. Others are following him.
The building was erected in 1S24, but
eleven years ago it was thoroughly
went over and at great expense refur
nished and refitted and a nice new Ply
month 'Rock that had not leen used was
put in in place of the old one, which was
much out of repair.
The name Plvmouth Rock was sug
gested to the Pilgrims by Rutherford B.
Hayes, an elderly man who came over
on the Mayflower together with a new
school of large Perc heron hens. These
hens he called the Plymouth Rocks, and
as it was a rule among them, and one to
which they strictly adhered, never to
cackle till they had laid an ess. this
wonderful characteristic of keeping faith
"with the puMic so endeared them to the
Pilgrim Fathers that their name is for
ever identified with the place where they
first set foot upon the soil of America.
In-ide we find a very good picture of
Oliver Cromwell, from a kodak study by
Sir Edwin Landseer. Of Cromwell I
can only say, in a wholly unpartisan way,
as did the edito of a paper in Mississippi
who, by some s -ange oversight, in an
unguarded mom at paid his way in to
hear me lecture i ice, "Some liked him
and some did not."
The signature of Cromwell was torn
off the corner of this portrait by some
fiend in human form in the days when
visitors were admitted free. Now that
admission is charged, we find that relics
of the Pilgrims do not have to be re
placed so often, and a Plymouth Rock, if
carefully selected, lasts five to eight
Fronting the entrance at the cast end
of the hall hangs the large painting of
the "Lauding'' by Henry Sargent. It is
a good picture, there leing but one criti
cism that 1 cmld offer, -nud the iirtist is
not to blame, for he could hardly bo
held responsible. In arranging them

not feel an interest. The picture is val
ued by those who make painting a busi
ness at $3,000, and was given by Mr.
Sargent to the Pilgrim society in 1834.
In 1880 the frame was dusted off.
"The Embarkation" is another good
picture, the original being at Washing
ton. It is the model of a steel engrav
ing used on the government currency
so I am told. It was made by Weir, a
great painter, from whom sprang Tom
my Weir, the Spider. It is a wonderful
family, unmistakable genius hanging
out like intellectual wens upon their
massive skulls from generation to gen
eration. Lucy's great picture of the "Embarka
tion from Delft Haven" is here. It took
first money at Westminster hall in 1848,
the prize being 1,000, which, in 1843,
would buy a tremendous amount of gro
ceries. This picture represents the de-
