' A careful examination of the bill to
create a department of banking and in?
surance, recently introduced in the
house of delegates by Representative
Berkeley, of this district, and of which
a short notios from tho Richmond
State was published in Friday's issue of
The Times, shows that in Borne re?
spects the bill is an excellent one and
meats an urgent need. For the manage?
ment of this department six persons,
will be required,-namely, a superin?
tendent, a deputy, an actuary, a book?
keeper, n stenographer and typewriter
and a messenger boy. \
Toe department will havo a general
supervision over banks, Insurance com?
panies and building and lo?n associa?
tions throughout the State, and will be
supported, if the bill bo pessed, by fees
for examinations and moneys received
for certificates filed. It furniBhes safe?
guards to tho publio interests in the
line of banking, insurance and building
and loan associations and promisos not
only to be eelf-supporting ' but to add

jAVb^ill is ceftlsorvative in its fv^jf*? /,
and just >) nil parties, while it affords
proper protection to the people, whoso
interests it is tho duty of tho State to
guard. The duties of the superintend?
ent may at first glance appear to em?
brace rather a wide scope; but, when it
is remembered that a man thoroughly
posted as to tho generalities and details
of banking, would bo well qualified
to grasp all matters relating to insur?
ance and building and loan associations,
to which the first named business is
more or less allied, these apparent ob?
jections disappear. BesideB, tho duties
ot the superintendent will bo largely
executive, and with competent assist
each of the special branches, he
not to find any difficulty in oon
\ho details of this new depart
f Ab to the salaries proposed, it will be
i for the legislature to determine tho
rospoctive amounts, and there neod bo
no foar that any of them will be made
"too fat," when tho work to be done
and tho responsibilities incurred are
taken into consideration. It is hoped
our law-makers will study tho pro
posod mo&suro carefully, and if they
do this they will find it of sufllclent
importance to make it a law, for it is
woll drawn up, after a careful stuiy of
the laws of the different States upon
tbe questions of which it troats.
THK SPANISH LANGUAGE.
In view of tho fact that tho firm stand
of this Government on behalf of the
Monroe doctrine cannot fall to render
the commercial and political relations
of this country with tho Spanish Ameri?
can ropublics south of us much more in?
timate and cordial, it would be well for
^manufacturers, merchants and business
i?n generally to sparo no effort to im
\ove their opportunities for trade and
tercajmie^wlth those countries.' '
Whether won^ve war with England
or not, because of tho Venezuelan com?
plications, it la certain that the United
States Government has by its course in
that matter won the sincere gratitude
of the people of the last named ropub?
lie, and the respect and esteem of the
whole of Central and South America.
This will lead to increased trade and
commerce with those countries, in
which young and energetic Americans
will largely figure. In order, however,
to fit themselves properly for the work
before them, it will be necessary that
they learn to read, write and speak the
Spanish language. This being tbe caso
it will soon bo in order for Spanish to
be largely taught ia the schools of this
It is not a difficult language to raas
xe>,' and all progressive young Amerl.
cans should start about adding it to tho
.list of thoir accomplishments without
^elay. Those who start early will bo
prepared to first enter the field, and in
-view of what has already transpired, it
will not bo long before Spanish, to a
great extent, will tako tho placo of
French and German as a study in tho
schools of tbe United States.
About 45,000,000 pooplo in Central
and South America spoak the Spanish
language. All of them aro friendly to
tho United States and will becomo
more ao as tlmo progresses. Americans
?who go thero speaking the language
will mako rapid headway in gaining
tho good will ot tho people and In ad?
ding to the business of tho lines they
represent. By all means let the youth
of tho land begin the study of Spanish.

If England and Oarmany should be?
come involved in war the services of
the Venezuelan commission might noi
be required. The prospects of
European entanglements has mollified
the tone of the British pross towards
this country; but whether England has
war or not with Qermany, there is no
real necessity for a war with the United
States. A permanent board of arbitra?
tion would easily settle all differences
between the two oountries.

LONDON'S GREAT" PARK.
Tho Ham of the Metropollit Penetrates It
With liver Varying Cadence.
Tho greatest attraction of Hyde park
is ono which Londoners and most visit?
ors fail to discover and appreciate. It is
a unique and subtle charm whoso mean?
ing only those can kuow who have fall?
en uudor its spell. Hydo park, be it re?
membered, is tho only groat plot of
verduro iu tho world set in tho very
center of a great city. Boston Common
is bnt a garden compared with it, Cen?
tral park may soon be hommed in by
Now York's toomiug millions, but not
yet. Hyde park is a grateful refugo of
silence in the midst of turmoil. Only
upon its outer borders does tho restless
mob infringe. Within, away from Rot
ton row, away from carringo drive aud
fashionablo promenade, there is always
rest, tranquillity, sileuco?uo, not si?
lence, but in its place tho thing which
is tho mysterious charm of the spot.
Find a seat upon a bench in tho midst
of the wido, sweeping, open green whero
tho eye sees only grass and trees, with
no sigu of tho vast city ou any side. Sit
for a fow moments and listen?listen,
and there will come to your ears the.
most, wonderful sound in all tho world.
It is tho voice of London?an over
changing, inarticulate, pregnant solil?
oquy. Ono day it will bo tho gentle
murmur of a sea shell. Again it is tho
harsh grinding of tho mill of the gods
crushing human gruiu beneath its uppor
aud nether millstones. Tho mighty but
distant reverberation is somotimes a
triumphant harmony, sometimes a minor
note, melancholy aud despairing. Tho
myriad tougued voico which comes from
tho cast is sullen, protesting, enduring;
that from tho west is a careless choius
of pleasure and prosperity; that from
tho north is a hopeful strain of patient
progress; that from tho south is a ca?
dence of struggle and sorrow, and the
whole is a symphony of human life, ma?
jestic, inspiring, infinitely pathetic.
Nowhere save in this spot does tho
greatness of London impress itself upon
me. ?Boston Transcript.
A bright girl in Maine recently began
a composition thus: "Tho Puritans

tho Puritans found an asylum in this
