Notwitistandingtbe very disagreeable
w.-aiber last evening Harper'e theatre
wa filled with a select and appreciative
audience to listen to the famous platform
o-ator,Hon. George R. Wendiirg, lee
ture on "Popular Delutions." The enter
tinment was under the auspices of the
Rosk Island Lecture association. He is
a very pleasant speaker, and handled his
subject last nieht in a masterly manner,
holding his audience throughout with
unflaging interest. He began by divide
lng popular delusion into three great
classes, nnmely, political, social and reli -gious.
la the first class he mentioned
the great South sea scheme of the Earl
of Oxford which carried all England into
a fretzy of txcitement from which it was
aftetward estimated that its projectors
had clear, d nearly 66,000, 000. He then
ctlled attention to another disastrous
delusion in France, that cf John
Law's Mississippi tcheme and others.
'The greatest delusion perhaps the world
has ever known," said Mr. Wendline,
'as witchcraft which flourished in the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries
which cai sed in EngUnd alone neatly
30.000 to be put to death." It permeated
all grades of societv," said the speaker,
"from the high to the lowly and many of
the brigh'est inte lects of,those ages were
victims or this cruel delusion." He then
said that it was directly traceable to the
christian religion as it had taken root in
obscure references to witches in the bible
proving conclusively that'it was not alone
the result of ignorar.ee.
The speaker then passed to the dispell
ing of witchcraft and its causes, claiming
that as it was not the result of ignorance,
not eve a onr free school system
of today could have prevented it.
He then traced the dispelling of witch
craft to a religious and intellectual
movement which began early in the
eighteenth century, and was gradually
dit spmiDated, and it was this same love
for humauitT that caused the world to
appreciate a Florence Nightingale and a
Grace Darling, and that, thank God, the
movement was still growing and would
continue to grow, "and the child is in the
bouse to sight," said the speaker, "who
will live t see the day when the sword
of war will be be laid upon the altar of
He then spoke at some length upon the
evils of public office seeking, showing by
statistics lhat there is one office seeker to
every 10 voters, or in other words, one
man who wishes to be a burden to the
other nine. He then advised the young
men of to jay to avoid office seeking, say
ing that more of the financial and moral
failures of today were due to this than to
intemperance and gambling combined;
after which he spoke of tie practice of
soliciting votes, and in this connection
said that the day was coming when peo
ple would lose respect for tee man who
asked another for his vote.
Mr. Wendling then spoke of the popu
lar delusion that the country is in danger
because o" the election of what are called
small men to office, which fact, said the
speaker, in unquestionable proof of the
wiedem of the founders in this great re
public. The speaker then passed to the social
delusion which he said was almost as
great as any other; "You have not as many
friends as you think you have," said the
speaker. When you count your friends
you begin with mother, sister and wife,
and if you can extend the list beyond five,
taid the ejeaker, you are one person in
10,000. In this connection be mentioned
the custom we have of referring to what
we call '.be laboring classes. In this
country, said he, we have no class; class
means cast, with privileges belonging to
it, and noiie exist in this country. The
rich men cf today are but the poor men
of yesterdi.y. and the harboring of such
ideas is trt ason to the very principle of
American liberty, which gives to every
man, no matter of what station ia life,
whn he si ands at the ballot box, the
rights of aa imperial sovereign.
The last subject touched on by Mr.
Wendling was the religious delusion, in
which be said that emotion was not reli
gion; mat wnen we arc cimcu uj
the toneg of an organ or a aoul stirring
pulpit oratsr, it was all very well as emo
tion, but It was not religious, ile tnen
spoke of that one great sympathetic bond
between men which came of true religion:
"Thou shall love thy neighbor aa thyself;"
or a mututJ love for all bumanity, which
the speaker contended would bring a fu
ture American civilization which would
combine jv stice, temperance ana moral
ity, and th -ougb the general observance
of the Nazirene's great law, ieaa to me
ideal civili-ation in which allwou'd unite
in Gloria iii Excelsis.
The lec nre was one of those highly
cultured ef'-orta wbicn are productive or
nnspeakab e good in the advancement
of society in its highest ideal.

given entertainments in all the metropol
itan cities of this country. She contrives
to iniect some amusement into her "ex

It would be difficult to Bad two busier
places these days than Gilmore's slaugh
ter and pork packing houses. The sea
son of killing and packing commenced
yesterday, and already 600 poikers have
yielded up their young lives for the sub
siLtencyand prescrvatioa of huratnity.
It would require a good deal of space to
describe all that a porker goes with frrm
the time the butcher's knife is plungd
into its throat, or from the time, as the
men about the slaughter house ex
press it, "the pig's stuck." until it
is in readiness to be placed upon the
hooks ia a firtt cltiss meat market. It
need only be said, perhaps, that Mr.
Gilmore's slaughter bouses bave every
modern appliance for insuring neatDess
and dispatch. The hogs are slaughtered
at the establishment in the lower end of
the city and then brought up to the pack
ing houses on First avenue and Sixteenth
where tbey are cleaned, quartered acd
cured. And there are a good many bogs
put away m a ssasun cf three to four
months. Lvst year Mr. Gilmore disposed
of 10 500 hogs. This yesr he expects to
run three months acd kill and. pnek 15.
1 00, which is at the rate of 5,1:00 ptr
In his packing house he has storage
capacity for 3,000,000 pounds of meat
and he is pretty apt to utilize it all before
the season is over, for in addition to what
he kills And packs, be buys annually im
mense quantities of gnen meats, has them
stipied here in refrigerator cars and then
cures and packs them . Most of the bogs
which he uses come from hereabouts.
He has buyeis at Reynolds, Preemption,
Taj lor Ridge ani Orion, and also at Wil
ton and Durant.
"We anticipate no trouble in getting all
the hogs we want this year." Mr. Gilmore
said this morning, and "we can get them
reasonable at that. Hogs, like other
products of the farm, are abundant this
year. We will therefore not be delayed
in purchasing our needs and ia rushing
our season's work through without inter
