One o the greatest obstacles to
woman suffrage is .lie indifference of
women to the wrongs they are alleged
t j suffer because they are deprived of
Ir. and the greatest obstruction to
the punishment and abolition of po-
1 gamy is the support which the in
stitutiou receives from the women
Tchom it is alleged to degrade. Of
course it is possible that they are a
grade of women who, so far from be
njg degraded by a polygamous mar
nuge, would bo elevated by it, and
that, bad as it is, it is better for them
thnn no marriage at all, or a marriage
who.se ties, bonds and obligations
they wonld not faithfully recognize
or fulGil. However this may be, their
Gentile sisters admit that they are
very unpromising subjects for refor
mation, aud that quite as much as
the male Mormon, they are the life
and support of the institution. One
"Gentile "Woman"' writes to the Salt
Lake Trilmm- that she warned a
Morman woman, being the first wife
of a polygamist, she need not vote;
that her not .living with her husband
since he took his oilier wives made
no difference: nor whether she sanc
tioned hit? acts or not "When this
woman was sick she and other Gen
tile women took care of her, and
heard her on herick-bed defend the
divine command" which made her a
p "lygamist; the Saints forsook her,
b:u the Gentiles nursed her. In
spite of all these influences, however,
the woman and her daughter voted
and voted the Mormon ticket Some
r the Mormon women, "from whose
o es the scales were supposed to have
fallen,' refused to abstain from vot
ing as they might, and voted the Mor
mon ticket It makes mo perfectly
wild," says the Gentile woman, "to
hear these women, after kindness up
on kindness has been done them, go
on gibbering about that country be
longing to the Saints, given them by
Go 1. and the United Slates govern
ment's persecution of thorn.' A gen
erous and intelligent woman said
that hereafter she should give what
slio could spare to the Chinamen and
not waste it on these false and fraud
ulent Mormons, r?hc advises other
women, if they dfMre to alleviate a
fellow-woman's lot, to first make sure
whether she is worthy of it -"whether
she does not go against the coun
try." Those, evidently, are practical
difficulties in the way of reforming
the Utah abominations, which legis
lation must take into account
OH INESEEUnrM EXT.
A Chicago man, recently from
China, aays: 'China is far better
equipped to go to war than Europe
ans or Americans generally think. I
don't know the number of troops in
the Chinese regular army, but 1 have
no doubt that at a necessity she
could, on very short notice, raise from
3M,0iM) to 1,000.000 well-drilled and
'iely-equiipod men. The standing
army or China is drillled on the
Eurojwan plan by European instruc
tors. There are eighteen viceroys in
China, and each viceroy has an
army of his own, which would be at
the command of the general govern
ment in case of war. These viceroys'
troops are more than militia--they
are regulars. China has for years
been supplying herself witlnmproved
arms. She has purchased, through
German merchants doing business in
her towns, all the needle guns which
Prussia used when she went to war
with Anstrie inJl85G. She has fully
2,000.003 of them, besides Schneider
rifles and also some Remington rifles.
I have no doubt that China could
t asily arm 500,000 men with these im
proved anus. China has also pur
chased through European houses, a
number of Krupp and Armstrong
cannon. The Chinese navy is of for
midable strength. It includes about
a dozen men-of-war of the latest arm
ament and power, a dozen corvettes
and anothor dozen revenue cruisers.
Each of the latter carry three heavy
guns. Some of these vessels were
constructed in England and some in
Germany. All the war vessels have
English engineers, and some of them
ae officered by Englishmen. The
Chinese are making modern cannon
themselves now. They have found
cries near Shanghai, where they are
easting steal cannon. They are made
exactly as Europeans make them.
Apparently there are large arsenals in
China, whore arms and vast quanti
ties of ammunition and other mate
rials of war aro stored. Certain it is
that the bulk of artillery belonging to
the government is in fine condition."
Theue is a colony of enthusiasts in
Kern county, California, who claim to
have the cost of living "down fine."
By confining themselves to an exclu
sive diet of grains and vegetables
they say that 10 a year represents
the amonnt that each individual need
spend for subsistence. That sucli
subsistence" is not synonymous with
existence is something that possi
lly these kerns have not realized.
Titn last of the Revolutionary cen
tennials was celobrated at New York
yesterday with .great pomp and cir
cumstance, the occasion being the
hundredth anniversary of the evacua
tion of that city by the British at the
close wTu"55?&iitiqnary war.
THE MONUMENT 3IANIA,
Theue is more or less sentimental
nonsense floating about regarding
monuments to "Washington and other
great men, and it has very little sub
stance. Aside from the expression of
reverence or regret chiefly confined
to family cemeteries, the principal
use of mounments is a memorial use.
Before writing was common or print
ing invented the monument was a
substitute for history. On its sides,
or upon its facades, the exploits of
the king or the warrior were sculp
tured, either in pictures or written
These monuments were the arch
ives of the nation, the record of the
reigns. The monument of tne pres
ent day is a rudimentary relic of the
obelisk and the colum, the pyramid
and the bass-relief. But printing has
done away with all that If there
was a monument to "Washington in
every county of the United States, it
would not preserve his memory as
effectually as the printing press has
done. There is scarcely an issue of
the public press that does not, in
some way, recall his existence, his
character or his deeds. Every library
contains several histories of him;
school books abound with references
to him. The American citizen is re
minded of him in a score of ways
and not at all by a monument. If
all the monuments of all great men
that have been erected during the
modern era were blotted out of ex
istence, or had never been built, it
would have had no more influence
upon these great men's fame or no
more affected the esteem in which
they are held, than destroying all the
maps of the heavens would dim the
light of the stars. It is not "shame
fur or "disgraceful" not to erect
monuments, because they are no
longer any meaning in that act Bcal
aud efficacious testimony to the vir
tues and good deeds of a man is some
times sacrificed to this idea of monu
ments, as in the case of Peter "Wood
land, the assistant superintendent of
the tunnel now building under
the Hudson river, who sacr:
ficed his life to save those of his
workmen. A movement to erect a
costly monument to his memory is
reported to be thriving, while his
widow is starving. This is "shame
ful" and disgraceful It is the old
story of giving a stone when bread is
A coBREsroxDExr writes to the
Willamette Farmer asking if there
are any trees in Oregon that will pro

of hemlock in this count' that would
yield all the tan-bark this state will
