be thankfnl for.
At a recent meeting of Knights
of Labor, at Toronto, in speaking
of monopolies, one of the speakers
used the following illustration.
If a man owns a cow and takes
care of her, he is entitled to the
milk of the cow, but no man owns
one cow and milks three, unless he
takes the milk of some other man's
two cows. "When a corporation
waters its stock to three times the
amount of the original cost, then
the dividends shared by the incor
porators are the milk of three
cows, two ol which do not belong

000 vessels engaged in Europe
and North America in fishing.
Between G00,000 and 700,000 men
are employed in this industry, and
the total annual product of fish is
1,500,000 tons. A ton of fish is
equal in weight to about twenty
eight sheep; and hence, if this es
timate is approximate! y correct, a
year's fish supph' for ten Euro
pean countries, included in this
estimate, and the United States
and Canada, might be represented
by '11.000,000 sheep.
1" Iceland the women have
votes as well as voices in church
affairs. The custom has existed
there for ages, and is kept up by
the Icelanders who have emi
grated. There are in Dakota,
Montana and Manitoba nearly a
dozen Icelandic congregations.
These recently met in convention
at Mountain, Dakota, and adopted
a synodic.il constitution. There
was considerable discussion, but
finally it .was carried by a two
thirds vote that the women con
tinue to enjov their ancient privi
lege. lr the measures proposed at the
coming English election prove
successful it is difficult to see how
the British monarchy can stand
secure. With a house of lords
shorn of its ancient functions, with
the present state religion disestab
lished, with an almost universal
franchise, with home rule granted
to Ireland, with the present land
system overturned in Scotland, it
would appear to a simple com
moner that the flag that for
a thousand vears has battled J

Thin "alarming possibility of

graphed from Europe for a year or
so is getting a little stale. Not a
day passes but we are told in flam

has gone forth and the European
kings and kinglings are going to
fight sure. As Shakesneare hath it,

It is und-rtxd j-hat ih ' recent
declaration of forfeiture of alleged
O. & C. grant lands in Washington
territory xeleases from monopoly
grasp and restores to the public
domain some fine land in Cowlitz,
Washington and Pacific counties.
These lands lie along the Columbia
river, begining about five miles
from the bank of the river. They
were claimed on the same ground
that the Astoria land grant was
claimed, and when that was de
clared forfeited, the forfeiture
involved similar disposition of
that part of the shadowy title that
rested on the north side of our
It was a current saying in San
Francisco, in connection with the
New York steamboats sent out
there, round Cape Horn in 1S49,
that the first two years after her
arrival, one boat, the Senator,
earned her weight in gold. She
made daily trips, and was crowded
with passengers at $25 a head.
Her receipts at times amounted to
$20,000 on a single run up to Sac
ramento. "When the Senator was
withdrawn from the Sacramento
river trade she was strengthened
and placed on the coast route be
tween San Francisco and San
Diego. She ran safely and suc
cessfully until 18S0, when she was
dismantled. Her engine was tak
en out and the old Senator was
rigged as a bark. She sailed for
Australia, and arrived safely.
