TH8 ARTI8AKS' DWELLING ACT. ; How to prevent the crowdingtogether of the poor in cities in tenement houses not fit to live in is a problem which has received much attention from philanthropists, bat they have thus far met with little success in their ef forts to solve it. Grasping landlords and the poor themselves have been too much for the philanthropists. And now the failure of a plan from which much was expected, and which -was put in operation in London, is an nounced. In 1875 what was called the Artisans' Dwelling act was passed by the British Par liament, The object of the act was gradually to rid the crowded parts of London of old tenement houses which were the abode of filth, immorality and disease. For this pur pose the Metropolitan Board of Health were authorized to condemn oil such buildings and tear them down. Before the buildings could be removed, the Board were obliged to pay the owner a fairly assessed valuation for his property. The structures could then be razed to the ground, and the site or lease be sold to the highest bidder who" would agree to put up improved tenement houses. This act has now been in operation five years, and its result is not encouraging. The Board of Works have condemned and torn down the foul rookeries which covered six large areas, and sold the ground to landlords who promised to build better houses. They have paid high prices for buildings which were totally worthless. . In this way they have made it an object for landlords to al low their tenements to rot and almost tumble down without the least attempt to save them from ruin by timely repairs. The owners have actually taken pains to call the attention of the Board to the dilapidated structures in order to procure the condemnation and the high prices which the Board were always compelled to pay. On the six areas already mentioned the loss to the Lonion taxpayers has been 502,000. It would probably have been more had not the Board of Works for tunately found purchasers for all of them in the Peabody trustees. On eight other areas of ricketty houses which have been bought and torn down the estimated loss will 'hot be less than 500,000. It is stated that the Board will not longer persist in this folly, as they feel that the Ar tisans' Dwelling act has been sufficiently tested. As for the poor dispossessed persons they have not been benefited. In fact, most of them are worse off than before. They have been deprived of homes for which no better substitutes have yet been found. For, while the, Peabody trustees have covered all or a part of their six areas with so-called model dwelling houses, other of the cleared paces have not been built np. As a result the tenants who have been turned into the street are driven to seek bad quarters else where. The London authorities declare that the tenement districts of the city are more overcrowded than ever. The net conse quence of the act is undoubtedly a positive harm to the London poor. And this harm has been inflicted at a cost of a million or more of pounds to the taxpayers. Some such plan as this has been frequently advocated in various cities in this country. The theory is a taking one. but its working in London seems to show that it is imprac ticable. EDITORIAL NOTES. The clipped and bored silver coins ere a great nuisauce and they are rapidly increas ing in number. It is evident that they are clipped and bored by dishonest persons for profit. The way to stop this vexing robbery is for everybody to refuse mutilated coins. On the examination of a man who was re cently brought up in London for threatening to shoot his father a doctor deposed that he believed him to be insane because he did not know Her Majesty's age, the number of the royal family, the name of the Prime Minis ter or anything about the naval demonstra tion. This doctor ought to be examined. It is stated that the President is greatly an noyed by ex-Secretary Thompson's course in regard to the Panama canal business., Mr. Thompson ought to have pereeived that it was improper for him to enter upon negotia tions of the kind without the knowledge of those in authority when he held confidential relations with the President and was a high officer of the government. Judge Harlan, of the 'Federal Supreme Court, has decided in a case coming before him that a railroad company is fully respon sible for injury done a passenger on a Pull man sleeper without reference to the fact that such a car is owned, managed and served by another company. The company which sells a ticket is responsible for the safMy of the passanger, Judge Harlan holds, and the conductor and porter of a Pullman car are in the law the servants of the railroad com pany. The Great Eastern steamship has been defi nitely chartered for ten years to carry dead meat to the United Kingdom from North and South America. "It is calculated that from Texas or the Argentine provinces beef of prime quality can be laid down in England at three pence per pound. The promoters of this bold scheme intend to slaughter the cat tle on board the great ship as received from day to day, and for this purpose they have secured the. services of trained butchers from the slaughter houses of Chicago. , The dressed meat will be stored in refrigerators, and it is estimated that 10,000 to 15,000 car casses of beef, all hung :equal to 3,000 or 4,000 tons of meat will be shipped each voyage. Secretary Schurz's defense of his action in the Ponca business does not satisfy the Bos ton friends of the Indians. The Adtfrtiser of that city says : "When, near the close of his letter, Mr. Schurz says, addressing the Governor, but including all who sympathize with him, 'Ton look at it from the stand point of one who has the Poncaa alone in view ; I look at it as one who has the respon sibility for the management of the affairs of all the Indian tribes,' he shows how poorly he rates the intelligence and the motives and the arguments of those who for two years past have been pleading for the rights of these people. The truer way of stating the position of the contestants would be that the Secretary looks at it from the point of view of a mistaken and cruel policy, - while the Governor and those who agree with him look at it as a case involving not only the treaty rights of all Indians, but, above all, the hon or of the government by which , the Ponca rights have been sacrificed." -The National Republican, of Washington relates two cases of bulldozing in Virginia which illustrate Democratic methods in the South.: One was that of a -watchmaker who had established himself in. business at Port Boyal and was doing well. He is a Bepubli can and took part in the late canvass. He was admonished by leading Democrats of the town that if he persisted in his Republican ism they would withdraw their custom and, break np his business. , He asserted his free dom of opinion as a citizen, and the threat ened consequences ca?ie. His business has been destroyed, and he has been forced to depart to some point where freedom of opin ion is tolerated. The other ease is that of a plasterer by trade, who was located near Har risonburg, in the Shenandoah Valley. He has a large family dependent upon his daily toil. ' He had contracts that would afford him employment and a reward adequate to provide for his wife and children throughout "the winter. As the canvass warmed into action he took part ill accordance with his Re publican sentiments. He was admonished by the Democrats that he must abstain from pol itics as a Republican or take the consequence. He acted and voted with the Republican party. Then came his hour of trial. His contracts were declared off.and he was forced to remove with his family. He went to Washington, where he remains in penury, the victim of Virginia proscription. RECENT PUBLICATIONS. A very interesting book is that entitled "Vignettes of Travel," by W.W. Nevin. This volume - is made up of a number of letters "written for various newspapers, together with some fresh matter made up from notes taken by the author, the whole referring to a journey in Europe during 1879-80. In these letters the social and political condition of the countries visited, as compared with that of America, is interestingly treated. The author has also endeavored to give such in formation as every traveler feels the need of the special uses of special places, the best economies of time, route, etc. Published by J. B.

The author says: "Their writer passed ten weeks of the summer of 1877 in England and France, where he met with a great and surprising kindness, and where he saw many beautiful and memorable things. These letters were written because he wished to commemorate however inade quately a delightful experience, and they are now presented in this form at the kind request of many persons strangers as well as friends to whom, and to all other- read ers, it is hoped they may bring an hour of peaceful and pleasant reverie. " The book is illustrated with heliotypes, from sketches by Joseph Jefferson, and is very handsomely bound and printed. Published by James R. Osgood & Co., Boston, and for sale in this city by Judd the bookseller. "Wild Roses of Cape Ann and Other Poems," by Lucy Larcom, will be read with delight by the many admirers of the author's work. A critic well says of the book and its author : ' 'Lucy Larcom, once a working girl in a Lowell factory, has shown in many things her strong and healthy good sense and her poetical faculty. Her perception of the natural beauty of the Merrimac a river born in the Franconia Notch, where its rushing affluent, the clear, cold and pure Pemigewas set, goes plunging down its granite ledges to the charming vale of Plymouth is shown in this volume ; but the greater number of these poems relate more especially to Cape Ann and that neighborhood. The very breath and music of the sea can be felt and enjoyed in these poems." Published by Houghton, Mimin & Co., Boston, and for sale in this city by J add the bookseller.

Not olT 1h the Young Men's Institute. Te. the Editor of the JouaxAi. ahd CotmiKB : I think your lady friend a little too partic ular. I do not exactly see why gentlemen in their own Institute, (where ladies are wel come if they choose to come), should remove their hats in the presence of ladies who are perfect strangers to them, any more than they should in a railroad car, or at the depot, of in the Peabody Museum. I presume any gentleman accosting a lady in the Institute would naturally remove his hat, but I fail to see any more disrespect in a gentleman reading a magazine or a newspa per with his hat on in the Institute, than in his doing the same thing in a drawing room car. There is no analogy between a private par lor and the reading room of a public institu tion. Don't let us have too much sickly sen timent upon such subjects. A Sttbsceibek to the Y. M. I. American Loclcs at tb.e Paris Exhibition. (From the Iron Age of Deosmber 9.3 In his very interesting report on the exhib its from Connecticut at the Paris Exhibi tion of 1878, Prof. William P. Blake, Hono rary Commissioner of the United States, gives the following information about the locks ex hibited by Mallory, Wheeler it Co. This firm, established since 183, manu facture exclusively door locks, padlocks door knoos, and bronze trimmings for doors. They make this description of goods their specialty, and bend their energies to the improvement and cheapening of the objects. They sent a large selection to Paris, using the same large show case, 2(1 feet long by 15 feet high and 2 feet wide, that they had at the Centennial. The exhibit was taken to Paris by the company's agent, Mr. Elliott Littlejohn, and was the first installa tion completed in the United States section. Upwards of 500 different samples were dis played in this case, all of them arranged upon a smooth black ground of bird's-eye maple veneering. There were some 400 locks and about 50 different styles of pad locks. This display of locks of so many different styles, and all of them so accurate in work manship and moderate in price, attracted great attention from the French and others unaccustomed to the manufacture of locks on a large scale by machinery and of cast iron chiefly. Most of the European locks aVe made by hand, unaided by automatic ma chinery, and the sizes and varieties are few compared with ours. The interchangeability of parts, or rather the production of large numbers of any one part each so exactly similar to the other that one might at any time be substituted in the mechanism instead of the other, as is the cast and machine made locks, was a feature which elicited many commendations from members of the jury. The "hotel lock," one of the specialties of this company, was another novel and some what surprising feature of the exhibit. In these locks, which are apparently all alike, the keys are not interchangeable. Each lock requires its proper key, so that in a house, we will say with 140 locks and keys for as many rooms, no two keys can be found that will open the same lock, while a single master key is applied that will open them all. These locks are marvels of mechanical skill and are very cheap, concerning the accuracy of the work and internal mechanism. They are supplied in sets from 50 to 140, and are Bate as against any of the keys except that fitted to each lock separately, and the master key, which will pass all. The reversible door locks for either right or left hand doors were also an interesting nov elty to most of the foreign visitors. This lock is so made that by simply pulling the latch bolt forward and turning it half way round the sloping surface of the latch is turned in the opposite direction, thus adapt ing the lock to any door opening right or left. This can be done by the joiner when fixing the lock on the door, and without in any way deranging the mechanism of the lock. It readjusts itself as soon as the turn is made. When fixed to the door the latch cannot be again reversed without dismount ing the knob and withdrawing the spindle. It is thus secure from accidents due to med dling. The result is accomplished by means of a movable yoke on the spindle, which yoke is held securely in its place by the spindle when inserted, bearing against the end of the pin shown on the right. This pin prevents the latch being drawn forward while the spindle is in its place. When it is removed the pin. is free to move, and thus permits the yoke to be drawn forward far enough to allow the square head of the latch to extend be yond the case and to turn around. The little spiral spring around the pin serves to draw the yoke back to its place and with it the pin, leaving the socket free for the insertion of the spindle. The mechanism is thus auto matically readjusting, requiring no effort or . care on the part of the workman. All the' parts readjust themselves, and none of the mechanism is displaced. This and the . sim plicity of the contrivance is the basis of a strong claim for superiority by the manufac turers, who. challenge comparison and trial with any other form of reversible latch. Messrs. Mallory, Wheeler Sc. Co. were the first to manufacture padlocks extensively in the United States. They now 'makeover one hundred different styles and sizes, and use both iron and brass. A good selection from these styles was shown in Paris. For beauty of finish and cheapness they appear to be un rivalled. The lacquered or "japan" work on the padlocks, as well as on the door locks, is unequalled by any foreign manufacturer for lustrous black, a high polish and durability. The only padlocks in the foreign sections of the exhibition comparable with those of Mallory, Wheeler & Co. were in the Austrian section, in the exhibit made by a Moravian firm. These attracting the attention of Mr. Littlejohn by reason of the unusually good quality of the black japan, and their general resemblance to Mallory & Wheeler's locks, were closely examined by me, and proved to be in reality some of Mallory fc Wheeler's locks, from which the trade-marks had been intentionally removed by filing down the brass drop, which covers the key hole, and by dissolving off the lettering in white lead paint which had been put upon the samples when sent out from the works. The decorated rim locks, of which a few samples were shown, served to indicate the possibilities' of manufacture in tnis direction. From an art point of view, locks as well as all other door trimmings should be decora tive as well as merely of use to hold the door. There is no good reason for hiding the lock in a mortise unless it is to make it inaccessible and to get its uncouth and un finished shape out of sight. The French and most European architects use rim locks and finish them in sumptuous styles, adorn ing them with carvings and gilded moldings. They are effective objects in the decoration of the interior. So also the window bolts are in full sight upon the sashes and are elaborately finished. The contrast between the cases of locks in the French section and those in the United States section was strong ly marked, the French being decidedly the most brilliant and ornamental. The effort to decorate our American rim locks is to be hailed with pleasure, and should be encour aged by consumers. The manufacturers of this State have had a somewhat similar experience in several oth er instances. I have been told of a similar case at a former exhibition where the famous pumps of Douglas had the name filed out, and were shown as a foreign product. Such frauds are too odious and open" to detection to be common. They are, nevertheless, a tribute to the superiority of American hard ware, and will go far in dispelling the plausi ble objections raised in some quarters to the importation and use abroad of our manufac tures. There was some discussion among the members of the jury familiar with the hard ware trade of France and Belgium upon the relative cost and prices of European and American hardware. It thus became inter esting to learn something of the ability of such an establishment as this, devoted exclu sively to locks, to compete with the French in the same line of industry. It was shown that the prices at the place of manufacture were much lower than the French. Messrs. Mallory, Wheeler fc Co. were ready to fur nish a good reversible knob lock, complete with knobs, escutcheons, screws, tfcc, ready for the door, at 12 cents per door, and a pad lock with a spring shackle and key as low as 4 cents each. This was a surprise to many of the foreign manufacturers, who made goods at extremely low prices and fancied that they could not have hurtful competition. The firm has received awards at several ex hibitions. At the Centennial, 1876, Philadel phia, their award was given for the following reasons : "Commended as very superior goods, fine in finish, and tasteful in design."" After a careful examination by the jury at Paris a gold medal was awarded. .
