Co-operation has not worked very well in
this country, though why this is so is not
easy to tell. In Great Britain it has been a
decided success. It is thoroughly system
atized in that country, and the societies en
gaged in it have enormous capital at com
mand. The co-operative societies of Great Britain
are divided into three kinds. First, the dis
tribution societies or retail stores. There are
about 1,200 of these, and they have
a membership numbering 640,000, with
a capital of $30,000,000. Their sales
annually are estimated at $90,000,909. These
stores supply groceries, bread, meat, coal,
clothing, etc. Out of these retail stores have
grown, secondly, two wholesale societies, one
in England, the other in Scotland. These
wholesale stores sell together $30,000,000
worth of goods in a year, supplying about a
third of the goods purchased by the retail
stores. Thirdly, there are twenty-tw,o man
ufacturing or productive societies, and five
federal corn mills. The corn mills do a bus
iness of $6,500,000 a year, and the produc
tive societies a business of about $1,100,000
a year. The total business done by these
societies in the last twenty years gives an
almost startling view of their importance. It
is said to reach to the amount of $1,250,000,
000, and the net profits upon this have
amounted to a hundred million dollars, the
whole of which has gone into the pockets of
the working classes. The average dividend
on the capital employed has been at the rate
of 29 per cent., and the average dividend on
the sales reached 1 shilling 6 pence on the
In regulating the admission to membership
in these societies a minimum rate is fixed,
which varies from $5 to $25. Goods are sold
for ready money only, and at the market
rates, thns entering into, no competition in
the way of prices with other stores. " The
profits, however, are ascertained at the end
of each quarter, and divided in proportion to
the amount of purchases on various sales
generally, however, on the rate above indi
cated as the average. He who has but $5
invested gets bnt a small sum. The largest
amount allowed one person in a store is $1,000.
Members who receive dividends may permit
them to remain as shares in the store, and
interest at the rate of 5 per cent, ia allowed
on all sums thus deposited. The societies
thus answer the purpose of savings banks
as well. ' The wholesale societies have buyers
in all parts of the world, and their manag
ing committees are elected by the stores.
This scheme of co-operation is of immense
benefit to thousands. It is surprising that
similar work has not been -done in this
country. There is certainly no good reason
why it cannot be as snsoessful here as in

facts regarding his financial administration
which bring into marked prominence his
economy and faithful adherence to the inter

the late tory government had in its last fonr
years left a deficiency of 7,330,000, while
his own government had the satisfaction of
reporting fox an equal time a surplus of .1,
550,000. He then made clear that, while the
Beaconsfield government paid off 10,984,000
of the debt in four years, he has . reduced it
25,024,000 for an equal term, and that, 'by
the end of the present financial year, the re
duction will reach about 33,000,000.
General Hancock, lately on a western tour,
is said to have received a letter asserting that
the writer had lent various sums of money
to his nephew, Lieutenant Frank Hancock,
out on the plains. Frank died not long ago,
and the general had undertaken to adminis
ter upon his estate. .The letter intimated
that there were good reasons why this claim
ought to be quietly satisfied. Hancock "de
clined to be agitated by this onslaught.
Again the fellow wrote of chumship with the

The Utica Herald has received advices
from the counties of central New York rela
tive to the Republican situation. It instruct
ed its. correspondents to report any defection
visible and give their beat judgment as to the
vote in November compared with that of
1880. The information obtained shows that
the Republican outlook was never better.
"There is not a county in the entire belt
where the Republican vote does not promise
to equal that of the presidential election; and
in a number of localities reasons aie given
for expecting Republican majorities larger
than those of 1880." Everywhere the rank
and file of the party Ts alert, enthusiastic,
and full of confidence. Club organizations
are doing more than ever before. The Her
ald, commenting on its returns, says: A
studied effort has been made to spread the
impression that the condition of the party in
this section is not as promising as it might
be, and that Cleveland was to make great
gains in these prosperous and intelligent
counties. It was to ascertain the actual
truth that the investigation now published
was made. It appears that the Democratic
reinforcements are as fabulous here as they
are elsewhere in Maine for instance, where
the Republican vote and the Republican ma
jority are both larger than ever before.
They are like the mythical sea serpent very
much talked about, and occasionally seen
by some one else, when nobody is about. In
a word, the Republican party is in the same
condition here that it is in everywhere else
alert, aggressive, united and confident of

Something ror Rev. T. K. Bacon's Con
sideration. To the Editor of the Journal and Courier:
The New Haven Palladium of Monday,
September 15th, publishes a letter from the
pastor of the Dwight Place church in which
he condemns (both alike) the two prominent
political candidates for the next presidency.
The writer is reminded of the story of the
old lady who, when asked how she liked the
new minister, replied that she liked him
first-rate, because he had nothing to say
about politics or religion. The "sparsely-settled"
congregation of the aforesaid church
cannot all endorse the old lady or abide by
her conclusion so far as politics go, for there
is one "unimportant member" there who is a
personal friend of Mr. Blaine and who does
not believe he is a "thief" or is guilty of the
other crime which is so "absolutely convinc
ing" even if Mr. Bacon continues the use of
his pen, followed by his influence and vote
for Mr. Cleveland. "Blessed are the peace
makers." - "Judge not, that ye be not
judged." Yours for

Stanley's African Servant.
- From the Pall Mall Budget. -Mr.
Stanley has with him his favorite ser
vant Dnalla, a slim Somali of twenty-three,
picked up as Aden, who has acted as his con
fidential attendant for the last five or six
years. No one could fail to be attracte4.by
his bright, intelligent face, his genial smile;
and his answers to some pleasant badinage
which his master exchanged with him at
luncheon showed a surprising readiness and
grasp. With the various points of the Congo
question he is thoroughly conversant, expres
sing his opinions with much decision; of
De Brazza, of the missionaries, of the Portu
guese and so on. The length of the Congo,
from Leopoldville to Banana Point, he is
known, and when he appears at the station
he is at once recognized as the representative
of Mr. Stanley, as whose ambassador in ad
vance he often acts. In fact Dualla is a
diplomist of consummate tact, which does
credit to his teaching. His English is won
derfully good, and. at present he is acquiring
the art of writing. "Dualla is getting whiter
every day. Do you use Pears' soap, Dnalla?"
asked Mr. Stanley, laughing. But Dualla
had not tried its virtues. This is not hia
first visit to London; though it possess great
attractions for him I am afraid he prefers the
gayeties of Paris. Dualla is getting home
sick and is going back to Aden for a time, at
least, to friends. "Dualla thinks the white
girls very pretty, but I know there is a dusky
Somali maiden in the case,eh,Dualla?" Dualla
blushed, laughed and beat a hasty retreat.
That he has faith in England is evident from
the fact that out of the 350 he had saved out
of his wages of 80 a year he has invested
250 in consols. The odd 100 he has spent
jn presents for his friends, like the thought
ful fellow he is. i
A FEMININE DUEL.
Two Valiant Damsels at .Pnteaux
Fight ror tne Love or a Ragpicker.
From the Paris Morning News.
On one side of the Avenue de Saint-Germain,
at Puteaux, is situated a large court
surrounded by tall rookeries, which are in
habited by ragpickers. In the afternoon of
Thursday the daughter of one of these use
ful members of society ,bearing the soft name
of Zelie, who had seen twenty summers and
presumably as many, winters, encountered
Mile. Marie Yoisin, a young woman known
to her, and aged abont seventeen years. Both
fair creatures happened to be in love with
the same fortunate ragpicker, a certain Ber
nard Ronq, nineteen year,, 'd, who dwells at
Clichy. Zelie and Marie, tnvrefore.held high
debate for a time, and finally, after veritable
challenges, they got down to the cold and
calm terms of a regular contest, by which the
point of honor between them could be
straightway settled. They agreed to fight.
The weapons chosen were, of course,
scissors. - The duellist who should succumb
was to relinquish at once and forever all
claim to the heart and person of the gallant
Bernard Ranq, ragpicker.
They armed themselves at once, proceeded
to a vacant piece of ground and the battle be
gan. Several wounds were rapidly ex
changed; light ones it is true, but yet suffi
cient to draw the gentle blood of the combat
ants. Zelie soon found herself hard pressed
by her young and more fiery rival, and, in
receding as she dropped her guard, she fell
plump into a well, the opening of which is
on a level with the ground.
As Zelie disappeared with a wild shriek in
to the deep abyss, iu which truth is tradition
ally supposed to dwell, Marie promptly obey
ed a humane impulse, and forgetting all her
resentment, ran for succor. The unfortunate
Zelie was drawn out, nearly suffocated, and
it was only at the end of a half hour that she
returned to consciousness.
The Commissary of Police lodged an in
formation against the two Bellona-like young
women for duelling, and also one against the
proprietor of the ground on which the com
bat was fought, for not maintaining a guard
about the mouth of the well. This double
action may possibly seem illogical to some
persons, since, had the well not opportunely
received the fair Zelie in her hasty retreat,
the affair might have had a far more san
guinary ending. Whether she will now give
up all pretension to the love of Bernard
Kanq we are unable to state.
MONTE CARLO'S GAME.
A Stock: Company to Carry on Camb
Unir on a Bis; Scale.
From the Paris Morning News.
Two fresh Monte Carlo suicides are record
ed by the Nice journals. " A Polish advocate
named Gonlsky, aged thirty,has shot him
self, having left the gambling-table penniless
and his parents having refused to send him
further funds, of which they foresaw the
certain destination. A young man named
Maurin, who had been living for several
months at Nice, regularly frequenting the
gaming-tables, has killed himself with lauda
num. While these tragedies are still going on,
even in the Monte Carlo dull season, its man
agers have unconsciously betrayed some mis
givings as to the duration of the establish
ment. They have announced on the Paris
Bourse the issue of 60,000 shares of 500
francs, their apparent design being, not to
dispose of these shares, but to make it be
lieved that they have been disposed of, and
that a host of shareholders is thus interested
in the maintenance of the infamy. They
seemingly hope that this will deter the French
government'from exerting pressure on the
Prince of Monaco, or will, at least, give them
a better chance of indemnity if the conces
sion be cancelled.
The French system of shares to bearer ren
ders it impossible to ascertain the real owner
ship of shares; and when Monte Carlo is sup
pressed an army ol men may present
themselves as honest investors beggared by
the stroke. The dividend, however, of late
years has been 115 francs, and as the shares
are considered to be half paid np, the divi
dend is virtually 50 per cent., so that on
their own showing there could be no equita
ble claim to compensation, the shareholders
having nearly in the last two years recouped
all that they are assumed (and only assumed)
to have invested.
Betrayed by a Pet.
From the St. James Gazette.
Among the minor items of local news in
the Parisian journals is one in which may be
regarded as a pendent on a small scale to the
old story of the dog of Monlargis. A young
English opera dancer, who, it seems, is fre
quently guilty of the reprehensible omission
of neglecting to pay the cab drivers whose
vehicles she engages, left her dog as a sort of
pledge with her Antomedon the other day,
when she alighted to make some purchases in
establishment of the Louvre. She made her
egress from the building by a door on the op
posite side, and the cabman saw nothing
more of her till a day or two ago, when he
espied her in. a cage, where she was having
some retresnment. lie asked her for his
fare, but she denied all knowledge of him.
and flatly refused to pay him. The cabman
disappeared for a moment and returned with
the dog, which he had since been carrying
about with him. The moment the little
creature saw his mistress he flew towards
her, wagging his tail, barking joyously, and
gauejouy muuigmg in au xne recuguzxeu
canine manifestations of delight. The case
was clear so clear that the young person
herself did not venture to dispute the matter
further. Unfortunately she had no money,
and the commissionary of police before whom
she was takjan sent her to the depot. '
