We hope that all our readers who are vo ters will take the trouble to-day to vote upon that veiy important matter the biennial see-, sions amendment. It ought to be adopted, for it will save much money and unneces sary work and trouble. The bill adopted at the last session of the legislature under which the amendment will be voted upon Is as follows: The form of said ballot shall be as follows: "Con stitutional amendment providing for biennial elec tions and sessions of the general assembly1 Those in favor of approving and adopting said amendment shall give in said ballot with the word "Yes" writ ten or printed thereon, and those who disapprove of said amendment shall give in said ballot with the word "No11 written or printed thereon. Thus it will be seen that those who favor the amendment will vote "Yes" and those who oppose it "No." SOUTH CAROLINA IN DANGER. Some of the southern papers cannot re frain from furnishing good material for Re publican campaign purposes. Thus the Charleston News and Courier, which is a pretty respectable paper except just before election time, announces that South Caroli na is in danger, because the Republicans can poll their full electoral vote, and intend to do it. It further says: "The Democracy must arouse themselves. They must recall the sufferings and the triumphs of other cam paigns, and resolve to work unremittingly and systematically for the next month, or South Carolina will be in serious danger in November." There is no misunderstanding this. If the suffering and the triumphs of other campaigns are recalled the negro voters will have trouble enough. The Columbia Register states the sit" nation still more plainly than does the News and Courier. It thus howls: To our mind there is not a shadow of doubt as to what should be done, and sharply, quickly done. We should not wait for the brutal foray of the black bullies and Blaine blather skites of the white race.. We should carry the war into Africa. The great bulk of the colored people of the State want no trouble with the whites. The colored peo ple instinctively feel and recognize the power and prowess of the southern whites. It is no new thing to them. They have seen it with their own eyes, and not with those of another; they have felt it in their own bones and not in other people's bones. They naturally and instinctively do not want to be pushed up against a solid wall of white men, when the white blood is up and when those whites mean business. When the colored wave im pends, the cry of 'the bloody shirt' is fool ish and futile. All this looks bad for the blacks who want to vote the Republican ticket in South Caro lina. Evidently the time has not yet come when the southern Democrats can be safely admitted to power. EDITORIAL NOTES. Mrs. Lockwood's ' ishing. "boom" is not very floun- Vote for biennial sessions to-day in the in terest of economy, less and better legislation and less politics. Good and great ancestors are desirable, but they don't always "count." Within a week after Henry Clay's grandson was killed in a drunken Louisville brawl Patrick Hen ry's grandson was before the police court in the same city on the charge of being a com mon drunkard. The Buffalo Express knows of a young lawyer who got as far in a work on profes sional ethics as to define "an honorable practitioner" as "one who leaves his client enough" money to take him to the next town," when he was saddened and discour aged by the comment of a veteran learned in the law, before whom his views had been laid: "Well, an attorney who would adopt such a rule might, as you say, be honorable in a sense, but I should be inclined to regard him as hardly doing justice to his own fam ily." . Gentile schools will perhaps do more against the spread of' Mormonism in Utah than any other influence, and it is, there fore, encouraging to note their growth. The value of the district or regular Mormon school property in Utah is over $400,000,. while that of the Gentile schools is nearly $300,000. According to the last report of the school superintendent 17,787 children, at. tended the district schools and 5,400 the Gentile schools. It is not an uncommon oc currence for a parent to take children out from under Mormon teachers and place them under the Gentile academies on account of the superior tuition. The English sparrow has been con demned by a committee of the American Un ion of Ornithologists as a nuisance, but it does not appear to trouble him much. This pest was first introduced here as an insect eater in 1858, and in ten years had spread through New England. They are now very numerous in the New England end the mid- oue btates, but are not known much in the South or West. It is charged against them that they drive away other birds,and they raise six broods in a season, four ot five at a brood. At present, these birds are protected by law in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hamp shire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, Ohio, New Jersey, the District of Columbia and Canada. The Ohio State Brewers' and Saloon-keepers' association is not pleased with Judge William W. Johnson of the Supreme court of that State, who is a candidate on the Repub lican ticket for re-election. The circular sets forth that Judge Johnson has rendered cer tain decisions favoring the constitutionality of the Scott law. "He has," says the circu lar of the Brewers' and Saloon-keepers' asso ciation, "been for years associated with the crusaders of both sexes, and openly boasts his sorrow at the defeat of prohibition last year in the State. What can we do with such a fanatic, except to defeaF his election to the bench by throwing our votes in favor of a man of more just and conservative views?" ' Judge Johnson seems to be a very bad man, but it would not be very surpris ng or displeasing if he were elected. A Montreal court has had a hard tussle with the definition of the word "dude." In the case of Allan Hamilton, a clerk in the crown office department of the court house in Montreal, against another civil service em ploye, the plaintiff alleging that the defen dant had insulted him in the public streets by calling him a "dude," the court, after hearing much testimony, declared that it was thoroughly bewildered as to what a "dude," actually was. The legal point at issue whether an insult punishable by fine or was im- prisonment had been offered in public; but for a long time, in the amusing turn which the case took, the real issue was lost sight of. Both sides were represented by able counsel, and a large number of witnesses had been summoned chiefly with a view to discovering the exact meaning of the word "dude." To this end a multitude of questions was asked and a bewildering variety of definitions was elicited, as may be imagined when it is men tioned that the witnesses included lawyers, civil service employes, policemen, well known young swells, tailors, merchants, theatrical agents and journalists.

To the Editor of the Journal and Courier: We most devoutly wish that your corre spondent; "Observer" when he writes would try to touch the pith and marrow of the sub ject, and not imitate the unfortunate victim in the play of "Blind man's buff." We have thrown down the gauntlet. He evades the issue. He dodges, wriggles and squirms. Wehave challenged him or any other man to defend oh the basis of "justice and equality') the conferring of privileges on one church and refusing to confer them on another church under the same circumstances. We have passed for a reply, and there is none. Instead of this "Observer" talks of the size of the extension and our estimable, distin guished and worthy citizen who claims he will be inconvenienced, incommoded and trampled upon. Let us know whether our boasted "equality" is a mere sham, a glittering platitude or controlling principle moulding our opin ions and guiding our action. Is it a play thing for politicians oris it something dear to the heart of every American, rooted and grounded in the very hearts of the people? This is what we want to know and what this question will ultimately decide so far as our city government is concerned. Mockery forsooth! You pretend to give us equality and yet you would fan the flames of jealousy and sectional strife; you pretend to give us bread and yet you would offer us a stone. Our advice to you (whether young or old) is that you cultivate your judgment and rea soning powers, and then your "observa tions" will be more correct. United Church. Church Extension. To the Editor of the Journal and Courier; Having read the remarks of several per sons printed in the Journal and Courier regarding the -contemplated addition to the United church edifice on the Green, I was led to observe that on the Trinity church building now in progress, and the first sight suggested pack peddler, and if there is any beauty belonging to that familiar sight I shall add many years to those I have already passed before I am able to comprehend it. Having observed from my youth the artistic beauty of the original stone structure and its correct proportions of architecture, I consid er the incubus destructive 'to all its hal lowed associations. Over three churches placed upon our historic Green, eaeh with its own noble history, we are proud of. The "United church" could not do a worse thing than destroy the present, building as it is by the addition of a bundle of - bricks like a Dutch oven on the rear of the dwellings in another State familiar to the observer. We look upon the "North church" as sacred to the memory of those long passed away, and there are some remaining to bewail the sacrilege contemplated. And if ac complished the New Haven Green, famed for its beauty, with its noble elms and anci ent churches in their simplicity making a part of the art picture, must be a thing of the past. A Lady, "Town Born." A Question. To the Editor of the Journal and Courier: . Does it occur to those who urge the exten sion to North church on the ground of im partiality to the churches, that the Episcopal church is represented on the Green by one structure,-while the Congregational is repre sented there by two structures?

Considering the trouble ballet-dancers have to leam their business, they . are not well paid hardly, if at all, better than a chorus-singer in a comic opera. Anybody can become a chorus-singer, almost. That is to say, it needs no very extensive vocal ac quirements and a practice of only a few weeks, whereas to be a ballet-dancer of any ability whatever takes years of study and constant daily practice. Considering how hard they work, and how much, it is marvel ous so few of them ever amount to enough to rise out of the corps de ballet to become co ryphees, secundas or premieres. The fact is that one must begin at a very early age. Most good premieres have had parents or rel atives in the business, and they have usually studied ever since they could control the use of their legs. Considering all this the re ward is insufficient, because a premiere may become celebrated at sixteen or seventeen, and she is done for at twenty-six or twenty seven that is she has to descend to the sec ond rank. Take a season of forty weeks for ten years at about the utmost a premiere can make say two hundred dollars a week and the total earnings of her prime are not more that eighty thousand dollars. This is the ut most, and it is not much when we think that it is spread over ten years. But the very great majority of even those who have studied all their lives make no such money as this. They all seem to sink into obscurity or poverty after a few years unless they happen to make a good marriage, which is seldom the case in this country, where the hard sense of the people is against such sentimental connections. The secundas at the theatres here are paid an average of fifty dollars a week. This is much more than they can earn in Europe. The coryphees require thirty dollars a week at Niblo's and about twenty-five dollars at the Star, and the corps de ballet anything they can get, the general price being from twelve to fifteen dollars a week. This is the price of a chorus-singer in every good comic opera company. But the work of the ballet dancer is infinitely the harder. If you fol low the wo."k of one of them during an even ing you are not amazed that they are ready to fall with fatigue when the performance is over. They must dance and march, and then must stand for hours looking on at the evo lutions of the principals, whose dances do not last more than six minutes at a time. But even this is nothing to the rush and haste that is made when the dances are over, and they have to get to the dressing-rooms to change their costumes, which in a spectacle occurs five or six times iu the course of an evening, often more. There are women in "Sieba" who have to change as often as ten times, in itself a work of no light conse quence. "But," said the maitre de ballet to a re porter at Niblo's one night between two of the scenes, himself iu a torrid heat of per spiration after having watched and filed and sent out a couple of hundred women, closely following their gyrations, clapping his hands at every change of movement to guide them to a new one, "but even for this hard life there is always a greater supply than a de mand. I dare say there are four or five hun dred women in New York to-day who are out of an engagement, but who can dance pretty well. The public, you see, is insatiable for new faces. If it finds in a ballet half a doz en faces with which it is familiar it is dissat isfied, and accuses the management of foist ing old ballets on it. That is why the sup ply must necessarily come from Europe, where the wages are even much smaller than here. Mere numbers on the stage do not count much if they do not know how to dance. It is better to have a small row of good dancera and pretty, well-formed women than a big row of people who do not know how to dance and who are not good looking. Fill your stage well, but do not overcrowd it, for the effect is worse that way than to havo no lady at all upon the Most of these newly imported women live in cheap foreign bDarding-houses near the theatre, where the fare, however, at five and six dollars a week is infinitely better than what wonld be obtained in an American boarding-house at the same price. The better-paid women live further up-town and in a better class of houses, but it is not notice able that they are very economical and save as much of their money as they can. l ney come to America to save money, not-to spend it. The conduct of the women is very good, and here, particularly, there is an absence of the stage-door mashing business, wnicn would be in full blast if we were running a comic opera or a burlesque company with English or Americans. It is not at all habit ual to find among ballet companies mainly formed of Italians the loveliness that pre vails among those named. The best dancers are divided between the merits of the Grande Ecole, which is that of Milan, and the Ecole Moderno, which is that of Paris and Vienna. The first adheres to the old-fashioned pas seul and pas de deux and groupings, with great bounds and diffi cult pirouettes. The modern school seeks to be pretty, graceful and eccentric, and is now most in vogue, though not so legitimate. A Germ Filter for Water. From Engineering. The tendency of research is to show that the germs believed to cause so many diseases are not found in the air, except under ex ceptional circumstances, but exist chiefly in water. This is probably due to the fact that rain and filtration eventually bring the pro ducts of fermentation and decomposition into the watercourses. Water may, there fore, be considered as one of the principal agents in the propagation of such diseases; and M. Chamberland has recently turned his attention to the production of a microbe fil ter which would purify water not only from its mineral but its animal impurities. M. Pasteur has employed a porous vase of baked porcelain to separate microbes from the me dium in which they are generated, and this is the basis of M. Chamberland's filter. The latter has observed that water filtered through one of these vases contains neither microbes nor their germs; and proof of it is that such water can be added iu any proportion to sus ceptible liquids without causing any change in them. The apparatus of M. Chamberland, which was recently brought before the French Academy of Sciences, can be fitted directly to any water-pipe, and aets by the pressure existing in the latter. Under a pressure of about two atmospheres, which is the pressure in M. Pasteur's laboratory, M. Chamberland obtains with a single porous tube or "filter ing candle" (as he calls it) twenty centime tres long and twenty-five millimetres in di ameter, some twenty litres (about four gal lons) of pure water per day; that is to say; a sufficient quantity for the uses of an ordina ry household. By multiplying the number of candles or filter pipes, so as to form sets or "batteries" of them, a supply of pure wa ter sufficient for a school, hospital, works or barracks can be obtained. The filter, there fore, is of a practical kind, and being simple and inexpensive, will supply a much-felt want. The filter is cleaned by brushing its external surface, and plunging it into boiling water, or by heating it directly in a fire to destroy the organic matter lodged in it; and properly cleaned, the same tube will last in- dehmteiy. wnue upon mis suujecb we nitty mention that electricity has been suggested as a means of ridding water ot microbes, ana a filter which electrifies the water has actual ly been designed and constructed.
