CANADIANS [ARE FIRM.
Washington, Nov. 20.?Although the
Canadian and American commissioners
consider the recent conference a success
so far as it related to things in the fut tire,
it is universally acknowledged here that,

it was a 'Mre failure. It is hoped that
the airreeable talk indulged in will result
in some good in the 7ears to come. The
Canadians aro linn in their refusal to do
anything unless the United States Gov?
ernment agrees to reciprocity in atlvunce.
The trend of opinion 's that Congress

MUB10 AS A PROFITABLE OCCUPA?
TION FOR WOMEN.
Of the mauy fields of work open to fe?
male industry ami skill, there is not,
probably, unother tbat, when considered
in all its bearings, is more worthy the
attention of women than is tho Held of
music, and this, whether we regard the
matter from a pecuniary point of view,
or whether we look upon it as merely a
field of work in which it is delightful to
liud women workiug.
The teaching of music is oue of the
ni"st profitable walks of the profession,
and is well adapted for women; indeed,
so completely is ^it within her capacity
thut*it becomes little short of .marvelous
to find so small a percentage ' of women
following this branch of work. It is eni
ineutly fitted to true womanhood, as
mach as it is not subject to the glare of
publicity, and to me many counteracting
influences wdiich make the life of a ser?
vant of the public?oven if she be a favor?
ite?so precarious, at times trying and
oven objectionable. A public favorite
may come and go, a 'great pianist or a
world-renowned diva may be eclipsed by
a greater; but the teacher is with us,
still laboring patiently, yes, it may be
obscurely, but, nevetheleis honorably in
a responsible work, which is not ligiitly
regardedby right-thinking people.becausc
it does not happen to be constantly en?
gaging the attention of that class of peo?
ple who write musical notices and who
call themselves critics. And, if tho teach?
ing of music is suited to women, it is in?
teresting to And that the public itself is
much disposed to encourage such a state
of things. Tne majority ot heads of fami?
lies, and even of girls themselves, and
children also woul ! prefer a music mis?
tress to a master, could an equal profi?
ciency be depended upon: and, inasmuch
as this question of proficiency would ap?
pear to be the only impediment, it would
bo passing strauge were women not to
remove it, especially as the calibre of
teaching among tho masses of to-day is of a
very poor average. It is not necessary here
to enter upon the several rates of pay?
ment for giving instruction in the seve?
ral branches of musical education, and it
may readily be admitted that ".such rates
are not on the face of them of a very high
standard. But, it is "not so much the
rate of the remuneration that *ha* to be
thought of as the permanency of the oc?
cupation. The life and work of a teacher
of music, especially if "uch an one estab?
lishes a connection with good families, is
not subject to the "ups" and.'"downs"
which fall to the lot of the vocalist and
instrumentalist. With the teacher each
day brings its appoiuted work?the
noble work of endeavoring to raise others
to the level of one's own intelligence aud
power; but it is not tvery day or every
post that brings engagements for the
public singer and solo Instrumentalist.
On these grounds, therefore, if upon
none of the many others that might be
pointed out. the teaching of women is to
ho commended as a means for obtaining
not only a profitable, but an honorable

cal gifts would do well to consider that

WHAT PROCTOR Till Is KF.
Washington, Nov. 20.?Senator Proc
tor, of Vermont, expresses the belief that
Congress will pass a bill looking to the
revision of tho banking laws and 'the
entire currency system. He does not an?

that something will be <*znn to aid in re?
lieving tho existing situation. He thinks
that tho Hawaiian treaty will be ratified
by the Senate. He refused to discuss the
probable action ou Cuba.
