Wo are told by the friends of the Ding
ley bill that the measure will succeed
better as a producer of revenue in the fu?
ture than it has done in t^e nast. We are
at a loss to understand how this can be
possible, in that it wou'd be to defeat the
very purpose of its designers. Confessedly
the bill wrs framed for the purpose o(
checking the importation of foreign goortp
into the United States, and by decreasing
our importations we necessarily decrease
our revenues. Their promises are wrong,
and a false conclusion is the logical re?

country,wilt be reduced 10 pel cent. This
reduction will affect some 8,000 or 0,000

of the Fall River mills, will have the
effect of causing other industries of like

of wage reduction. All this is under

Virginia, and their intention of giving an
entertainment in Alexandria as well as iu
some of the cities out of the State. These
annual tours of the glee clubs of our uni?
versities and colleges are becoming more
popalar each year. That these entertain?
ments are always enjoyanle, and that the
music rendered is often of a very high
order, there is no doubt, but we question
very much the propriety of such trips
indulged lu to the extent that they are.
Of necessity they must inteifere very
much with the routine duty of college
life, and while we n:e not of' those who

is great danger of overdoing ii. Nul
only is the mind thus drawn oil from
study by these frequent trips, hut the
temptatious offered white out on them are
much greater than w.uld be met with

this way habits may be brad that would

" My mother was subject, to sick head?

Sho was unable to stand for any length

room as she could not bear the light. She
had noappet ite whatever and hcrstomach
was ho weak she could not retain what
food sho diel eat. Sho also had severe
pains in her bead. Sho suffered so much
that she became but the shatlowejf her?

timonial about IIood:s Sarsnparilla. It
Sounded So Truthful
I persuaded her to try this medicine.
Boforo finishing tho first bottle there was
an improvement in her condition. She no

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.
Tbe bill introduced in the legislature
on Saturday by Senator McCune, making
it a misdemeanor, punishable by fine, for
any youth to loiter about any female
school or semit-ary has already made him
the but of much newspaper ridicule.
Jlist the same a portion of the bill, at
least, is a sensible one. Only the presi?
dent or principal of a female school can
appreciate the amount of unnecessary
worry and annoyance that the thought?
less coniuct of young men often firings
upon him nnd upon his teachers. Here?
tofore, save in Richmond and one or two
?f our larger cities, there has been no re?
course for him, and he has been obliued
to submit to such annoyances with what
urace he was able.
Should the present bill become a law
the principal of any school will have it in
his power to enforce it. and no doubt will
thus be enabled to save himself much an?
noyance. The bill further provides that
"it shall be unlawful to i.iterfere with or
in any way disturb the pupils and teach?
ers of a female school while on any pub?
lic read or street, and that no communi?
cation shall be had for such purposes
either orally, by signs or writing." and a
violation of the law shall be punishable
"by a fine of not less than $10 nor more
than $50," with an imprisonment for
second offense of not less than teu nor
more than thirty clays. It is at this point
we think the oil' is at fault, althouuh it
'.eaves the punishment of imprisonment
discretionary. Imprisonment would
make the punishment greater than the
oll'ense, and we are pretty sure no such
bill can pass without amendment. Again
I we think the bill goes too far in that it
provides that "it shall be unlawful for
any one, eNcept on business, to enter the
grounds of such a school without the per?
mission ol the principal."
The bill Is faulty in its details, but it
is far from being a silly oue, and whilst
it would curtail some of the present pleas?
ures of the young men in communities
where female schools exist, it would at
the same time throw greater safe guards
around the young ladies of [such schools,
and would tend to 'liirhten very* materi?
ally the duties of those under whose su?
pervision they nre placed.
There are extremists and fanatics in
all things. Even religion does not escape.
I Bast week the papers chronicled the. *ha
: rangues of an efangelist who insisted
thai no man could hope to go to heaven
J who wore a beard and used tobacco, and
I that the woman who wore feathers in her
i hat was doomed Under the intense ex
I citcinent thus aroused there was a gene
J ral plucking of leathtrs by the female
j portion of the audience. This has been
paralleled by the crusade of a pastoi in
Connecticut against, life insurance. Un?
der his scathing denunciations nearly all
the members of bis church have cancelled
tneir policies. The ground that he tikes
is that Cod must be depended upon in all
our troubles to relieve us: that insurance
is a speculation on life, and that to carry
such a poiicy is to lly in the face of pro?
tecting providence. Such a position is
not tenable foi a moment.ami carried out
to its legitimate conclusions would be to
subvert all order in the business an 1 so?
cial world. Such fanaticism can only
serve to br'ng reproach upon the true re?
ligion and make it the taiget of ridicule
for seoflers and unbelievers.
The prediction made by many papers
last summer 'that Congress would be
forced to contribute money for the relief
of fool-hardy miners who had rushed to
the gold fields of Klondike, has coaie to
pass. Last week uongress appropriated
$15,000 lo this purpose. Secretary Alger
will In all probability place Sergeant
Brainard, of Oreeley fame, in charge of
the provisions lo he sent out. Under c x
I isting circumstances nothing less than
this should be done. The necessity "has
become a pressing ore, ami humanity re
mantis immediate action. The question,
however, aiises whether it would not
have been wiser, foreseeing the Inevitable
result, of this mad rush to the Klondike,
without even ordinary foresight for nec?
essary provisions, to have taken some
steps to prevent the over-populating of
those dreary wastes. If men will not take
care of themselves it sometimes becomes
necessary that some one take care of
them,ami this is a ca?e where it seems to
us that the old adage of "an ounce of
prevention being worth a pound of cure,"
Is peculiarly appliieable.

the recent rowdyism in'which the college
gymnasiuir was wrecked. There i'b ii
orevalent idea that the young men of our
colleges should he entitled to a degree of
liceuse not accorded any other das? of
citizens. Rowdyism and, in some cases,
absolute ruffianism on the part of stu?
dents is passed ovtr with a jest, or at
least with a slight reprimand,which,were
it indulged in by others, would be vis?
ited by severe penalties of the law. As
a rule the young men attending our col?
leges and universities are from the homes
of culture and refinement, ard one would
naturally look for better conduct from
them than is to be found in a lot of street
bummers or gutter rowdies. The suspen?
sion of ?he Priucetun men who were en?
gaged iu the recent disgraceful hazing
affair will no doubt put a stop, to such |
scenes at Princeton, for a time at least, j
and were the example followeil at other
schools and colleges its young men would
soon learu to know that they were as
much amenable to law and order "as any
other citizens of the commuuity.
