Notice from J. N
Adam & Co.
We do not intend to
ti t r
allow any dealer in
New Haven to retail
Parasols or Fans or
Lace Goods or Sum
mer Dress Goods at
lower prices than ours
during the next three
weeks; 4ut rather " we
shall try lo have our Jig-
tires less than those of
any other house. It is
not a question of what
the goods cost. Ordi
narily our buying facil
ities enable us to cope
easily with such compe
tition as we have in
New Haven, but that is
not the point just now.
It is a question now who
is going to have the
most courage in mark
ing down, and standing
the loss. And we here
by give " notice that we
hayess&i' ourselves to
win. . Mfe can stand it.
Come and see. Last
week we filled two close
ly printed columns of
this paper with exam
ples of the reductions
then begun, tut we are
at it every day, making
fresh reductions wher
ever necessary, andper
haps often when not
really necessary. We
dont often advertise in
this way, but when we
do, we mean it. Be
sides the goods men
tioned above we should
also draw attention to
what we are doing in
Hamburg Edgings, in
Cloaks Sacques and,

Wednesday, July 16, 1884.
JAMES G. BLAINE, of Maine.
JOHN A. LOGAN, of Illinois.
Governor Cleveland and bis friends find it
hard work to persuade that important being
the Workingman that his (the Workingman's)
interests have been carefully looked after by
the Democratic nominee for the Presidency.
The Workingman thinks he knows better,
and the indications are that, he will prove
very troublesome to the managers of Cleve
land's campaign. His opposition has already
taken shape in several places.
In Washington a meeting of representative
men of the different labor organizations of
the capital has been' held and resolutions
adopted setting forth the fact that as gov
ernor of New York Cleveland has "vetoed
all bills passed in the interest of the common
people of the State" and calling upon the
workingmen - and their friends to boycott
him at the polls. The Cleveland (Ohio)
Pennv Press, an independent Democratic
Workingmen's paper, which has great influ
ence with the labor vote of northern Ohio,
refers to Cleveland's nomination as placing
Ohio's electoral vote "in Blaine's pocket."
Interviews with thirty of the leading Irish
men of Cleveland indicate that the Irish vote
of the city will be largely given to Blaine.
John F. Henry, a great wholesale druggist
in New York city, and president ot tne
National Anti-Monopoly league, has given
the opinion that " the laboring men and anti-
monopolists will under no circumstances
support Grover Cleveland." Mr. Henry
brings the following charges against him:
He accepted the Democratic nomination for
governor two years ago on one of the strong
est anti-monopoly platfons ever adopted by
a State convention: he promised the anti-
monopolists that he would stand on that
platform, if elected, in good faith, and would
stand by the canals and in all ways carry out
the principles enunciated by the convention;
but he has failed to keep his word. He ap
pointed a railroad man as superintendent of
canals and named two men who are in sym-
nathv with railroad corporations for the
board of railroad commissioners. He vetoed
the Elevated railroad five-cent fare bill, and
the bill to reduce the hours of labor of con
ductors and drivers. In other ways he has
violated his pledges. He has not been true
to the Democrats, to the anti-monopolists or
to the laboring men, and he violated long-established
Democratic principles by favoring
the one-man power in New York and
Mr. O'Connell, one of the best known
members of the Knights of Labor, says that
he thinks there will be united action on the
part of all workingmen against Cleveland.
Cleveland, he says, is a monopolist. Butler
cannot support him because he promised
when he accepted the Greenback nomination
he would not nphold the Chicago nominee if
a monopolist was selected. The workingmen
cannot vote for Cleveland because he was
nominated by representation of capital.
And so forth and so on. How Cleveland
can be elected if the labor organizations are
against him is a problem which will stagger
even the most rampant Independent.
The "Around the World" letter which we
publish this morning will be found as inter
esting as any of the series thus far.
Hubert O. Thompson thinks Cleveland's
nomination "the very best that could be
made." Mr. Thompson has good reasons for
thinking so, for Cleveland saved his official
head when it ought to have been taken off.
The census of 1880, which was gning to
be finished so speedily, is not yet done, and
will not be for a year or so more. It has
cost up to date in the neighborhood of $5,000,-
000, and what it will cost to nmsn it no man
knows. Perhaps it will be done before the
next one is begun.
The New York Sun makes the pat remark:
In all the political campaigns we have ever
seen Detore tne present one, me ueaire ui
those who have advocated any particular can
didate has been to get votes for him, not to
drive them off. But now it seems to be other
wise." The Tribune ought to consider this
An attempt has been made in England, in
a modest way, to utilize electricity as a mo
tor for tricycles, the prospectus of a compa
ny having been issued. It is proposed that
100 persons bind themselves to buy an elec
tric tricycle at $250, or, in other words, that
shares of $350 each be issued, each holder of
a share being entitled to be supplied with an
electric tricycle. The first machine to be
produced is an electric' tricycle carrying two
persons and fitted with battery and motor
sufficient to be propelled on level ground at
the rate of six miles an hour.
The Tichborne claimant is to be released
October 24 on a ticket-of -leave, and there is
considerable curiosity to see whether he will
make use of the notoriety he has acquired to
advance his fortunes. It is understood that
he could make considerable money by ac
cepting the offers of sensational managers,
and if Mr. Barnum does not get hold of him,
he may come to this country on a lecturing
tour. There is still considerable doubt
among well-informed people as to his identi
ty, and Mr Labouchere says in Truth that
although he is assuredly not Mr. Tichborne,
it is by no means certain that he is Arthur
Eev. N. B. Thompson, of the First Free
Baptist church, of New York, is willing that
the people of that city shall go to Central
Park Sunday afternoons and hear good music.
He meets the charge that these concerts will
keep people away from church by stating the
simple fact that "two-thirds of the popula
tion of this city are not church-going people";
that they must have pleasure and recreation;
and that, if the laborer who has been accus
tomed to spend his Sunday in saloons c an be
induced by music to pass his Sundays in the
Park, then he had better go there. "It is
neither human nor Christian," he further
said, "for a highly-favored class to say what
others should do." '

One of the most remarkable instancies f
the transmission of power by electricity is
that presented by the electric railroad In one
of the main crosscuts of the Oppel colliery,
Saxony. The crosscut is 2,862 feet long, and
is the outlet for the coal mined in the vein,
the quantity delivered to it being six hun
dred cars per day of sixteen , hours, each car
weighing, when loaded, 1,594 pounds. A
train of fifteen cars is moved at a speed of
from seven to ten feet a second, the steam
engine at the mouth of the shaft making
from 225 to 250 revolutions during the run,
lasting from three and onehalf to four and
one-half minutes through - the crosscut.
When. doing this amount of work, the steam
engine delivered 11.2 horse power; or, as
suming the friction of the engine's gearing
to have occasioned a loss of twenty-five per
cent., the power actually transmitted by the
electric current to the locomotive was 5.22
horsepower, or 46.6 per cent. An estimate
of the cost shows that there are probably
many cases in which the transmission of
power by electricity .would pay well.
There are two or three Congressional dis
tricts in the eastern part of Massachusetts in
which the situation of affairs is interesting.
The Boston correspondent of the Hartford
Courant thus sets it forth: The Democrats
are certain of carrying only one district at tne
coming election. The others were supposed
to be all Republican when the apportionment
was made. Two of the latter, however, (the
6th and 7th), gave Butler a majority last fall,
and both may be hard to carry this year.
The 7th is pretty strongly a Democratic dis
trict on a Butler basis, though its present
representative is a Republican. Mr. E.
Moody Boynton, the Greenbacker, was the
means of dividing the opposition vote, and
letting in a Republican two years ago. Mr.
Boynton was then a Butler man. He thinks
Butler has been false to the Greenback party,
and therefore he left Butler last year. Now
Mr. Boynton is for Blaine. His abandonment
of Butler lost him (Boynton) nearly all his
votes and influence, and he will probably
have little support if he runs again; but the
opposition majority in this district is largely
made up of Butler Republicans, and if they
go back to the party ticket generally, as well
as to Mr. Blaine, the Republicans may save
their Congressman there. It does not seem
to be improbable.

it would not be surprising any Sunday to

English editorial on 'American politics:
The yearly gubernatorial election in the
United States is likely to result in a victory
for the Whigs. The Federalists, under the
leadership of Mr. Blaine, who was recently
nominated tor Mayor ot Chicago, are hope
ful of success. This now distinguished party
leader was brought from the Sandwich Islands
by Mr. Barnum and exhibited as the tat
tooed man. Having learned something of
American politics while traveling around the
provinces, he abandoned the show business
and devoted himself to the work of writing
a book. The advance proof sheets show such
insight that he was at once taken from his
lowly condition and placed prominently be
fore tne people. Mr. Illden, the prominent
barrel maker, has declined to vote in the
coming election. Arkansaw Traveler.

Jerusalem, June 10,
To the Editor of the Journal and Cocribk :
"Walk about Zion and go around about
her." That is what I did this morning, as I
have done on many previous mornings, in or
der to familiarize myself with every feature
of the environs of the Holy City. It is only
a walk of two and one-eighth miles close un
der the walls, and yet the number of objects
of interest to be seen is almost unlimited.
Indeed, by far the greater number of the at
tractions of Jerusalem are outside of the
modern walls. The" present letter will be de
voted to a review of some of the objects to
be seen and studied on this "round the city';
I started from the Hotel Fiel, at the north
west corner of the essentially quadrangular
enclosure occupied by the city. - Proceeding
eastward I passed the Damascus Gate, and
many places where excavations had revealed
traces of the ancient city down deep below
the present site. Just beyond the Damascus
Gate I gazed for a moment at the so-called
Grotto of Jeremiah, a huge, cave-like excava
tion in the solid rock, which is generally be
lieved to be a section of some ancient quarry.
The ambitious name which it bears is thought
to have been arbitrarily conferred upon it.
It was not until I stood at the northeast cor
ner of the wall that a historically valuable
panorama of scenery was spread out before
me. Then I found myself facing the Mount
of Olives, with its triple undulations so gen
tle as to render the term "mount" a misno
mer, with Scopus as its northern spur and
the Mount of Offence, barely visible, as its
southern spur. Between the city and this
range lay the deep, desolate ravine known as
thh Valley of the Brook Kidron, or more fa
miliarly of late as the Valley of Jehosaphat,
since for long oenturies there have been no
traces of the Kidron. It is curious how the
name of this valley has changed. Jehosa
phat's tomb is exhibited to the credulous
here, but that does not explain the name.
since the tombs of many other patriarchs and
prophets are similarly exhibited here. The
truth is that the name arose from a popular
belief among those who accept the Bible lit
erally tnat the prophet Joel meant this ravine
when he said that God would judge the
heathen for their oppression of the Jews in
the. Valley of Jehosaphat. In this connec
tion the expression was doubtless figurative,
being synonymous with the "valley of judg
ment;" but the world has capriciously caught
up the error and perpetuated it.
Poor ragged, hungry-looking Olivet! Its
only wealth to-day is the legacy of hallowed
associations which no other mountain on
earth can equal, even Sinai included. It is
almost denuded of olive trees to-day, and its
top is crowded with filthy huts, tawdry
mosques and villainous smells. Nevertheless
it is still one of the most attractive of the
mountains which are "round about Jerusa
lem," and in Christ's day, when it was doubt
less covered with olives, it must have been
very decent. No discriminating traveler can
conscientiously write more.
Wandering along the east wall among hun
dreds of Mohammedan tombs, I arrived pres
entry at St. Stephen's Gate, so named, I be
lieve, because it is one of the places where
Stephen might have been stoned. Here sev
eral paths diverged, one leading across to the
modern Uethsemane. l tooK this path, the
one up which our Lord was led captive after
las betrayal m the garden, and - crossed the
valley of the Itidron. ihe nrst building that
arrested my attention on the other side of the
ravine was the picturesque facade of a low
building in a sunk court at the left. This is
the traditional chapel and Tomb of the Vir
gin. I descended some seventy steps into
the bowels of the earth, and found myself in
a gloomy, sepulchral apartment. I took a
peep at the reputed tombs of Joachim and
Anna (the parents ot the virgin), and Joseph,
the husband of Mary. The last resting place
of Mary, now empty ot course, was pointed
out in another apartment. Most of these
personages have graves elsewhere, but you
must not allow your faith to be disturbed by
this tact, loo much mqmsitiveness would
be ratal to any tradition.
I inspected a rock which retains the im
pression of the girdle that the Virgin let fall
to convince the skeptical 1 nomas, as a monk
gravely averred, and then passed on into the
reputed Garden of Gethsemane. And now
arises the great question, w here was Ueth
semane? I join the ranks of those who re
pudiate the claims ot the present garden,
principally on the ground that Christ would
have "retired" to a more secluded spot for
that season of preparation for the great
tragedy which was so near at hand. The
modern "garden" is a paltry plot of ground,
enclosed by a high white plaster wall, located
directly in the fork where two public highways
unite, looking away to the north the travel
er can see places much better adapted to the
solemn scenes of that night of agony; places
more retired, and places thickly planted with
olives of equal or greater antiquity. One
experiences the satisfaction, however, of
looking about him and saying, "Here, some
where in this spacious amphitheatre on the
western slope of Olivet and Scopus, is the
general site of the sacred place." I thought
of Christ's words, uttered at Bethany, only a
mile distant over the mountain, as I ploughed
my way through the phalanx of beggars that
guarded the garden entrance: "Ye have the
poor always with you." Inside the garden
was as disappointing as it had been when
seen from without. There were eight exceed
ingly old and scraggy olive trees within, a
number of cypresses which had been planted
to promote the appearance ot the place, a
vast collection of hot-house plants in pots,
carefully guarded by wire screens so that no
relic-fiend could appropriate even so much as
a leaf, and a series of the veriest daubs in
the way of pictures or images that ever dis
graced a Latin possession. When I entered
there were only three persons m tne garaen
(or more properly conservatory) They were
women, and they were weeping as if their
hearts would break, as they performed the
circuit of the enclosure, kissing every stone
and going through with a series of religious
gymnastics before every picture. Afterwards
1 saw the same women laugmng most hilari
ously just outside of the gate. Such locali
zation of reverence do the Catholic sects of
the East inculcate.
In the center of the garden was a well,
with a Latin inscription stating that it was
the gift of "Adelines Whelan, of Washing
ton, U. S. A., 1875." I suppose some zeal
ous Irish-American Catholic was the donor.
Nothing disgusted me more than the wretch
ed illustrations hanging around the wall.
These represented all the genuine and ficti
tious incidents in the passion of Christ which
are so dear to every true (Jatholic. Ihese il
lustrations involved the grossest inconsisten
cies. One showed Simon the Cyrenean,
begging of the unwilling Christ to allow him
to bear the cross, whereas we read that the
soldiers compelled Simon to bear it. Others
portrayed the first, second and third falls of
Christ under his burden, his meeting with
his mother, the good offices of that uncertain
individual St. Veronica, with her handker
chief bearing the impression of Christ's face,
etc., etc. The costuming was reckless, but
always flashy. Sometimes Christ had his
purple robe on and sometimes it was want
ing. I should infer that it must have fallen
off half a dozen times on the way to Calva
ry; but I did not succeed in solving the mys
tery as to how the artist knew at what points
it was on or off. The faces were as expres
sionless as chalk, but Christ's was nearly al
ways ghastly with an impossible quantity of
blood. To cap the climax, the last view rep
resented Joseph and Nicodemus depositing
the body .of the crucified God-man in the
sepulchre, dripping with blood from head to
foot! I read in my Bible that the body was
carefully annointed a full hundred-weight
of myrrh and aloes being used before it was
entombed. Nevertheless if it promotes any
one's piety to view such representations I wUl
be silent.
Another absurd design was an iron group
ing of the instruments of crucifixion, with
utter disregard for proportions. There was a
sponge on the end of a pole, a spear, a ham
mer, an instrument for removing nails, a vin
egar cruse, a crown oft horns, a pillar of flag
ellation, two scourges, a vigorous looking
metal rooster (I), and in the center a modern
shirt with three dice beneath, to signify that
Christ's garments were parted by lot!
An expectant monk showed me a rocky
bank near by, where the weary disciples fell
asleep, proving the statement conclusively by
pointing out indentations in the stone where
they lay. Then, with characteristic monkish
partiality for caves, he brought on the Grotto
of the Agony, marked by a very decent rep
resentation of the Son of Man, supported by
the strengthening angel. Lastly the point
was indicated where Judas bestowed the
treacherous kiss; and then my genial and
learned cicerone presented me in parting with
some olive leaves from the garden as a mild
signal for bakhsheesh.
It may be of interest to some to know that
the Greeks, enraged at the idea that the Lat
ins should have a monopoly of this place,
have started an opposition Gethsemane on
the opposite side of the road! I understand
that it is not yet exhibited to Franks, as its
custodians wish to wait a while for the olive
trees to grow in it. In sorrowful disgust at
such proceedings, which the sacred nature of
the locality ought to render eternally impos
sible, I returned by the trail, and proceeded
along under the eastern wall of the city,
taking the lower of two possible paths. A
short walk brought me to a large gate on
Moriah which has for many years been closed
by means of thick masonry. This is the fa
bled Golden Gate, located directly in front
of the old Temple site on the west, and di
rectly in front of Olivet on the east. All be
lievers in the literal restoration of Palestine
claim that it is through this gate that Christ
will come when his feet descend on Olivet in
the time of his second coming. Then will
this gate "lift up its head" and "the king of
glory shall come in," as the words of the
Psalmist are interpreted. Even the Jews and
Mohammedans look for something of this
kind. I have seen people who, for allegori
cal purposes, maintain that it was in front of
this gate es Moriah that the crucifixion took
place and the sacrifice of Abraham was con
ducted; and that the ram was caught by its
horns in a bush over across the ravine, in
Gethsemane, where also Christ was found to
become a substitute for a guilty world about
to suffer death. Thus (though by means of a
wanton disregard of facts and probabilities)
the one scriptural fact is made to be a pre
figure of the other. I call such persons alle
gorical fiends, however beautiful the concep
It was through the gate which was where
this Golden Gate is now that Peter and John
were passing on their way to the Temple,
when a lame man asked alms of them, just
as a score crave alms to-day when you are
about to enter the mosque area. You re
member how God then attested his confi
dence in Peter's repentance, and what a won
derful sermon Peter preached in Solomon's
porch to the multitude that gathered about
wondering at the miracle.
To the left I now discovered a series of
monuments and tombs of great interest.
The first was the reputed tomb of Jehosa
phat. Owing to the accumulation of rub
bish, only a small part of the pediment of
this is now visible, and I believe no one seri
ously claims that this is where King Jehosa
phat "was buried with his fathers in the city
of David his father" unless it be the all
believing monks.
The second is what is called in all the
guide-books the "Tomb of Absalom." With
out professing to be an antiquarian or even a
Bible scholar, I should prefer to regard this
as the so-called pillar, which Absalom
"reared up for himself during his lifetime in
the king's dale. " I have an idea that Absa
lom perished and was buried on the other
side of the Jordan. One supposition does
not involve greater antiquity than the other.
As for the monument itself, it is a cubical
monolith of solid rocks, measuring twenty-
two feet each way, capped above by a con- j
cave-curved pyramid. Around the base of i
the tomb or rather pillar is a great quanti
ty of rubbish, for the natives continue to
this day to cast stones at it in token of their
detestation of Absalom's disobedience. I
picked up a stone and was about to give ex- i
pression to my own execration, when two
voices seemed to come down along the ages
bidding me refrain, and I dropped the mis
sile. One was that most piteous of all pa
ternal cries the lament of poor, heart-brok
en David in behalf of the erring one: "Oh
my son Absalom my son, my son Absalom!
Would God I had died for theo, O Absalom,
my son, my son!" The other was that quiet
but awful mandate addressed by the Son of
Man unto the abashed Scribes and Pharisees:
"He that is without sin among you, let him
cast the first Btone.''
Next came the Cave and Tomb of St.
James, a porch with two Doric columns,
leading into the hillside. The tradition is
that James sought refuge here, between the
crucifixion and the resurrection.
Beyond this I came to the Tomb of Zacha
rius, a cubical monolith of seventeen feet,
crowned by a quadrangular pyramid. The
whole structure is hewn out of the solid
ock, t he mountain being cut away from it.
The Jews honor this monolith very highly,
but it doubtless belongs to the Christian era.
The modern theory is that the structure was
made in honor of Zechariah, who was stoned
in the court of the temple in the reign of
Joash (2d Chronicles, 24, 21), to whom Christ
refers in the 35th verse of Matthew, 23. It
has also been pronounced the tomb of Isaiah,
Uzziah and Benjamin of Tuelda. Over be
yond it, part way up the Mount of Olives, I
could seee the mouth of the so-called Tombs
of the Prophets, ancient subterranean burial
places. Even though the names are often
spurious, the traveler finds them convenient
for purposes of reference, almost
Turning the southeast corner of the wall,
I found myself facing, the dirty village of
Siloam, which stood over on the steep west-
era slope of the Mount of Offense. Moriah
was prolonged into the spur called Ophel,
around which the chasm of the kingdom cir
cled, on the way to unite with the valley of
Hinnom. At the point of union I could " see
a venerable stone arcn, which from previous
rambles I knew to mark the site of a well
125 feet deep, known as En Rogel, the well
of Job, or the well of Nehemiah. Donkeys
quench their thirst m troughs m front of it
to this day. En Rogel marked the boundary
between Judah and Benjamin (Joshua 15:7-8
and 18:16). Here also, David's servants,
Jonathan and Ahimaaz, waited by this well
for instructions from Hushai, during Absa
lom's rebellion; and here Adonijah, David's
son, assembled his friends when he aspired
to be king in his father's stead. These stories
are told hi 2nd Samue17:17and 1st Kings 1,9
Hoarv-headed tradition also says that m this
well the sacred fire of the Temple was hidden
during the Babylonish captivity, and recov
erd by Nehemiah on his return to Jerusa
lem! It did not take much penetration to dis
cover that I was now in the vicinityof theDung
Gate. Tons of rubbish were scattered about
promiscuously, hairless, scabby dogs barked
at me, and i came across the carcasses ot two
donkeys,from which the jackets had evident
ly been frightened before their hunger was
satisfied. Holding my olfactory organ be
tween the thumb and index finger of my
left hand, I descended again to the bottom of
the valley, and inspected the fountain of the
Virgin, an artificial cave eighteen teet long
by ten feet high and ten feet wide, from the
pebbly bottom of which a stream of pure
cold water bubbled up. The traditions con
cerning this spring are too numerous and too
trivial to De mentioned. it seems to oe
barely possible that it is the King's Pool men
tioned in Nehemiah 2: 14-15. It is connected
by means of a tunnel with the Pool of
Siloam, not very far distant, which was the
next place of interest visited.
The Pool of Siloam is a rectangular reser
voir, in ruins, some 53 feet long by 18 wide
and 19 deep. Some of the masonry is mod
ern and some ancient; but the local habita
tion of the pool is doubtless unchanged.
Although this fountain is very celebrated.
it is but thrice mentioned in the bible bo far
as I can learn, being called Siloah in the Old
Testament. Isaiah speaks ot 'the waters of
Siloah that flow softly," and Nehemiah says
that Shallum "built the wall of the Pool of
Shiloah by the King's garden". The site of
this King's garden is still plainly visible near
by, being indicated by a Btrip of peculiarly
verdant ground. In the New Testament
John tells us how the blind man was sent to
this pool to wash by the Savior, and of the ef
ficacy of the ablution. Dr. Robinson performed
the remarkablefeat of crawling through the
tunnel from the Virgin's fountain to the
Pool of Siloam. Near the pool is a
hugh mulberry tree, said to mark the spot
where Manaaseh caused the prophet Isaiah to
be sawn asunder. It is known as Isaiah's
Ascending the opposite bank of the Tyro-
paeon valley, I skirted Zion close under the
walls as far as the Zion Gate. Here I was
looking straight towards the valley of Hin
nom on the south, or Tophet. What an aw
ful series of bloody sins and bloody judg
ments has this valley witnessed! Here the
rites of Baal and "Moloch, horrid king," cel
ebrated in the songs of Milton, were per
formed by the idolatrous kings of Judah. In
this deep lonely chasm Solomon first formal
ly introduced that most abominable of ceremo
nies, the passing of children through the fire.
A hollow brass image was constructed, hav
ing the body of a man and the head of an ox.
A furnace in the interior was heated veryhot,
and then the screaming child was thrust in
to the arms the while that drums were beaten
to drown its cries! Such a system did that
anomalous man Solomon inaugurate, and
alas it continued even until the time when
Joeiah defied Tophet. (2nd Kings 3d: 10 etc).
Jeremiah particularly declaimed against this
sinful custom, and finally ventured the start
"Wherefore, behold the days
come when it shall no more be called Tophet,
nor the valley of the Son of Hinnom; but the
valley of Slaughter; for they shall bury in
Tophet till there be no more place." Was
not this prophecy first fulfilled when Neb
uchadnezzar sacked the city, and especially
afterwards when Titus slew over a million
captives in and about the city, at the time
when he was so horrified at the heaps of dead
bodies in the valley below Jerusalem that he
threw up his hands and called heaven to wit
ness that he was not responsible for this aw
ful slaughter. After uttering these terrible
predictions Jeremiah was commanded to
break the potter's bottle or jar in the pres
ence of the priests and people, in order to
emphasize his displeasure. I am told that to
this day the people here break a jar behind
a man whom they dislike, as if to pray that
he may be overtaken by a like destruction.
The New Testament word Gehenna, which is
translated well, is appropriated from r the
the name Hinnom where this monstrsus sac
rifice was performed.
A little to the west of En Rogel I saw a
number of caves and rock-hewn tombs on
the hillside, some of which seemed to be in
habited as dwellings. This was Aceldama,
the Field of Blood, purchased by the priests
with the money which conscience tortured
Judas threw down in the temple in an agony
of remorse after he had completed his miser
able betrayal of the Son of God. Zechariah
foretold the purchase of this field in his elev
enth chapter. Here in this "Potter's Field"
the wretched traitor hung himself, and fell
head-long disemboweled. What a tragic
end; and how different it might have all
been for him, but for that ono aeeUBed act,
the foulest crime ever yet communicated by
mortal man!
Almost behind this dreadful spot, appro
priately near, is the Hill of Evil Counsel,
where the Jews took counsel to betray Christ.
It may or may not be the identical place, but
its claims are undisputed, and it is helpful
in the absence of proof t the contrary to lo
cate there the chief of conspiracies.
Passing up' the western city wall to the
hotel from which I started, two more objects
claimed a share of my attention, the upper
Pool of Gihon,nearly opposite the Jaffa Gate,
and the lower Pool of Gihon, further
down the valley bearing the same
name. These pools are both
empty, and perhaps have been ever since
Hezekiah "stopped the upper out flow of the
Gihon," when he feared the advent of the
King of Assyria. It was at the upper pool
that the priest Zadok annointed Solomon as
King, while all the people stood around blow
ing trumpets, and shouting, "God Have King
Solomon!" The pool is about 300 feet long,
200 feet wide and twenty deep. The lower
pool is fully 600 feet long, 250 broad, and
forty deep.
This completes a hasty review of the chief
landmarks around about Jerusalem. If the
traveller does not receive ample compensation
for the time and strength expended in the
walk, I do not think it is the fault of the
priests. I think it is the traveler's own fault.
