The Black Death.
it is thought that the pestilence
raging in Hong Kong, China, is
the same disease that ravaged the
whole world about the middle 'of
the fourtoonth century under the
inamo of Black Death, and which
under the namo of the Plague
scourged Europe so fearfully again
in 1665. If this be so it is time for
all civilized nations to begin systo
matic offorts for its restriction and
extirpation. The Black Death was
the most fearful scourge to which
humanity has over been subjected.
In the fourteenth century it killed
13,000,000 peoplo in China, 24,000,
000 in other Oriental countries,
and not loss than 25,000,000 in
Europo. Germany alone had 1,
244,434 recorded deaths from this
cause. Italy had quite one-half
its ontiro population swopt away,
and in London, than a compar
atively small city, there were no
loss than 100,000 victims. The
Llisoaso is directly infectious, is
sproading rapidly from overy place
f its appoarance. It is attonded
by fearful sufforing, and is so
noarly always fatal that where it
has boon opidomic groat numbers
of the afhlictod havo committed
suicido rather thau endure a suf
foring so suro to ond in death
within it wook or two. The birth
placo of the .Black Doath was in
China, whence it spread literally
all ovor the inhabited world. If
this outbreak at Hong Kong bo
indood a now appearance of this
disoaso the nations of tho oarth
cannot too soon ascertain the fact
or too vigorously act for its con
fhioinent, to the region of its origin.
To that end our own Stato Dopart
mont and the foreign officos of
othor Governments should at
onco tako measures for united
action. No troublo can bo too
groat, and no expendituro can be
oxtravagont which will prevent
anothor journey of this postilence
around the world. No quarantine
can bo too harsh which is nocos
sary o prevent its entranco into
any civilized land. No sacrifico of
commorce should weigh against
hiumanity's right to protoction
against this morciless scourge.
T'ho timo to stop its ghastly march
is boforo that march begins.
Seuaoa- IIail anad the luneorne Tax.
Wash in gton,, Aug. 14.-As soon
as5 the journal was road the chief
alork of the house appeared and
:lolivorod a mossago announcing
the passago by the house oif the
b~ilIls to place oln the free lint sugar
bituminous coal, iron, ore and
barbedl wire. The message made
no allusion to the concurrence of
the house in all the sonato amend
monts to the tariff bill.
When the VICO p)rosident laid
h~of ore the senate the free list bills,
Mr. Madderson asked that they be
roadl at length, aindc objected to
the socond ronding of all of them.
Mr. Hill gave notice of amend
monts to each of the bills provid
inig for the repeal of all income
taxes. The separate bills did not
come up dluriug the clay's session.
Tlhe Senate, at 2 :10 p. mn., ad
journed for the (lay.
After Mouaday's Cauacus.
Withnin 20 minutes after Mr.
Outhwaito reached the committee
room the rules, as p~roposedl by
Messrs. Crisp and Catchmings, wore
-adloptod, relportod to the house
and, after a sharp p~arliamoentary
battle in which Mr. Reed led the
op)position, the order reported by
the rules committee was adopted.
Mr. Wilson immediately rose
and offered a bill providing for
the free admission of coal, shale,
slack and coke, which was passed
- -yeas, 160 ; nays, 104.
The free iron ore bill passed by
a vote of yeas, 163; nays, 102.
The free barbed wire bill passed
by a vote of yeas, 187; nays, 84.
