THE INDIANAPOLIS JOURNAL, MONDAY, MAY 22, 1893,
New Yor.-avenua Presbyterian Church,
where the eesaiuns of the assem
bly are- held, and scores were
turned away. Besides the usual pre achi
ing nervier there was a mass-meeting in
tho Interest of the Young Feoplo'a Socie

Freabyterian Chnrch. Kev. J. U. Faton.
the veterun missionary to the New
Hebrides recounted to an immense audi
ence, at tbe Chnrch of tho Covenant, the
marvelous experiences oi an unequaled
record in the missionary services.
Tho coming week is expected to produce
the sensation of the assembly the debate
on the Urltfgs case. In just what shape it
will come np cannot be definitely stated.
The record of the appeal from the action of
the New York Fre sbytery has beeu placed
in the hands of the jndiciary committee, of
which Kev. George D. 15nker. D. IK, of
Philadelphia, is chairman. Dr. IJaker, while
not the lirst choice of the tfritrg men in
the General Assembly for moderator, they
gave him tbeir votes after Dr. Dickey had
declined to have his came used at a candi
date for the ollice. The committee will
probably report Tuesday on tho regularity
of the appeal, aod whether or not it ahoaM
be entertained, coming as it does direct
from the presbytery without bavins none
to the synod. On tho receipt of that re
port tho debate may be precipitated, al
though the probabilities favor a postpone
ment until after the reports from trie
boards of the church shall have been made
and considered. There are special orders
of businees at every session until Thurcday

Twenty-First Quadrennial Conference Now
In Session at Hudson, Ind.
Fpeelal to the Iudiatiapoti Journal
Hudson", Ind., May 21. Bishop Milton
Wright, of Dayton, called to ordor the
twenty-lirst quadrennial session of the
United Brethren Church. There are four
bishops and seventy members present, rep
resenting thirty-four conference districts,
from the Eastern, Central and Western
fctates, and also from Ontario. Half of this
body is composed of old men fathers in
their respective conferences. Much inter
est is taKea in the prospective opening of
foreign missionary work, and in a collection
for this enterprise nearly fiXJO was realized.
The joint address of the board of bish
ops was the interesting feature of Fri
day's session. Reference was mado to the
marvelous results obtained in the lino of
reconstruction and organizing after the
Division in lSi'J. Tho address referred to
the legal outlook of the church, and much
encouragement wasfound in the recent vic
tories in the higher courts, the federal
court through Judge Tafr, at Toledo, hav
ing recently decided the questions in
dispute for the conservatives.
This, with the favorable decision
lrom the Supreme Court of Oregon.
points to a final victory for the "old chnrch"
people, as they believe. The conference
session will likely continue ten days. The
streets of Hudson are black with Prince
Albert coats and silk hats, which are
mostly worn by the younger men. The
capacity of Hudson and surrounding coun
try is taxed in entertaining all who are
be re. and more are to coma in. Perhaps
SCO are now present.
WHISKY TKUST BOOMED.
Five Leading Distillers Have Withdrawn and
Will Hereafter Go It Alone.
Bpeclal to the Indianapolis Journal.
Peouia, 111., May 21. Five of the largest
distilleries in this city have withdrawn
from the trust Tho rumor of the with
drawal was on the street early yesterday
piorning. but nothing could be learned of
the trust otlicers, who are very reticent on
the subject. A reporter called on Samuel
Woolnsr, of the Woolner Distillery Com
pany, and asked him if it was true that his
company had withdrawn. Mr. Woolner
Eaid: "Ves.it is truo. Not only our two
oases, but the Manhattan, the Northern
and Peoria distilling companies have also
withdrawn." In 1J-S7 the Woolner brothers
Were the owners of two distilleries
In this city, the Grove and the Union
distilleries. Dor houses had a daily ca
pacity of 7,oC0 bushels, and with that ca-
!acity went into the Distilling and Cattlo
eding Company (Whisky Trust) when
t was organized in - Wo
leased tne ground on which the
distilleries stood to the company, at an
annual rentalof $15,000, payable quarterly.
The Cattle-feeding and Distilling Com
pany has failed to pay us any rent since
July 1, 1M2. The lease has the following
clause of defeasance in it: 'The les
sor shall have the rieht aod
iprivilege of canceliug this ' lease
on a failure of the lessee
to pay the rent for a period of
ixty days after the same becomes payable.
We served notice Saturday afternoon on
the company, and the lease was canceled
and we immediately took possession of the
distilleries, and will hereafter operate them
in our own name and independent of the
WbUky Trust. We will paddle our own
canoes and supply the trade,
"ll. S. Easton for the Manhattan. John
IT. Francia for the Peoria, aod S. H. aod J.
bchwabacher for the Northern distillery
have all taken similar oction and will
hereafter operato their distilleries inde
pendent of the trust There is fully 100,
O0 due these companies for rent, and
thero was no other course left to
us. The five houses are the larg
est and best in the country.
They have a total capacity of 16.000 bush
els and are capable of making tO.oOO gallons
of spirits everyday. We believe that tho
result of tho litigation pending and insti
tuted by tho Attorney-general will result in
the forfeiture of the charter ot the Dis
tilling aud Cattle-feedma Company. In
short, we think tho 'trust' is 'busted' wide
open."
Here ended tho interview. These houses
wcro to have teen closed by tho trust on
Juxiel. but the probabilities are that they
will run riuht along, as they are in the very
beat condition for businees.

Terre Hants Hatter Mr. Cleveland Has a
Clvll-Servica Policy of His Otru.
CLEVELAND NOT HOODWINKED.
He Is Getting at the Animus of the Voor-lie-Iunhm
Ilutlnets.
Brectaltotho Imllanapoila Journal.
Washington. May 21. President Cleve
land, unliko his guileless and fish-dinner
loving Postmaster-general, has not, per
mitted the Terro Haute postofilco incident
to die out on tbe mere promise of future
good behavior. Ho has not permitted Mr.
Yoorhees to pull the wool over his eyes as
completely as was done with Mr. Dissell,
and Mr. Yoorhees has not yet been able to
send partner Lamb any fear-allaying tele
grams, stating the President sustained Mr.
Douham. It can be asserted emphatically
that Mr. Cleveland is distinctly angered at
Mr. Yoorhees's conduct in the whole mat
ter and thare are rumors, constantly
strengthening, of au impendingrupture be
tween tho President aud the chairman of
the finance committee, to whom he has
hitherto yielded everything.
Tho Donham incident has io diszasted
the President that he refuses to talk with
Mr. Yoorhees and Mr. Turpie, or any other
Indianian about the case of Mr. Thompson
of Indianapolis, and the impetuous young
people who have been so confidently pre
dicting Mr. Thompson's removal for e.ich
successive day have discontinued their
fictitious excuses for the delay, but frankly
admit that the Donham business has so
disgusted the President that he will not
listen to any charges against Mr. Thomp
son. Mr. Cleveland has received full re
ports of the proceeding at Terre Haute,
and has tberouhly posted himself.
He has not relied on the Postoflice Depart
ment or on Mr. Yoorhees, but, from letters
received here to-day, it is evident that ho
has sought aud obtained information at
tirst hand. ISor is he satined with the in
difference manifested by President Lymao
and General Johnston, of the Civil-service
Commission. He will carefully go over the
situation with Commissioner Roosevelt as
soon as that gentleman has completed his
report, and will then decide for himself,
irrespective of Lyman and Johnston,
whether or not Mr. Donham has added vio
lation of the oivil-service laws, either
in letter or in spirit, to his other
'indiscretions," as Mr. Voorhees considers
them. There are indications that Mr.
Donham may be given reason to explain
some other matters to Mr. Cleveland bo
sides the recent postoftiee atfair. His course
at Terre Haute appears to have made for
him some enemies, who will stop at noth
ing to seoure his removal. It is asserted, in
a letter received here to-day. that Mr.
Cleveland is to be informed by some of
Mr. Donham's fellow-townsmen that his
friends have heen unwise in emphasizing
too much certain charges against his prede
cessor. Mr. Koosvelt has hot yst returned to
Washington, immediately on his arrival
he will have a conference with tho Presi
dent on the subject of not only tbe Terre
Haute postolhoe, but of civil service in In
diana generally, with reference particular
ly to Indianapolis, Evansville. Kockport,
and wherever elso tho Democrats are at
tempting to crowd out Republican otliclals
on liimsy charges. Meanwhile, Senator
Yoorhees is indignant at the President'sde
lay in turning out the postmasters. Hots
equally disgusted with Secretary Gresham's
emphatic notice that Hoosiers have prac
tically nothing more to expect from him.
and he is now looking to Secretary Smith
as tte only uuaas of paying oil' his remain
ing political debts, "since Gray and Morss
were appointed," said he, "they have shut
up on us like a jack knife." lie is very
sore, and there may be interesting develop
ments at the White House before long.
WHAT CLEVELAND WILL. DO.
A New York Organ Pretends to Give the
1'reftident's Idea on Civil rvleat
New York, May 21. The World this
morning, in its editorial page, prints the
following, in double-leaded type, from its
Washington correspondent: "The Presi
dent's civil-service policy has not changed
since it was announced in the World on
Saturday, May 13. A malicious report to
the contrary was invented by a newspaper
openly hostile to Mr. Cleveland and really
antagonistic to the Democratio party. Mr.
Cleveland haa no intention of
refusing to make removals for political
reasons unless offensive partisanship is
charged and proved. He will mako and
countenance, however, a good many remov
als, and every vacancy thus made will be
lilted by a Democrat. Mr. Clevelaod, in
his last administration, experienced great
trouble from the partisanship of bureau and
division chiefs. Men whom he had re
tained in ollice did their utmost to embar
rass his administration. They were willing
to risk their places for the purpose of dis
crediting the Democratic administration.
They were not civil-service reformers.
They were spoilsmen, appointed for parti
san reasons under the spoils system. They
hoped for preferment and promotion by aid
ing the return Of a Republican President
Some ot these men were in ollice when Mr.
Cleveland returned to Washington. A few
of them have been dismissed and others
will be. There is to be a general reform ot
tbis kind in the service. It is based on
eouud business principles. The President
and tho members of his Cabinet are de
termined to have subordinates on whom
they can rely in confidential positions.
"Mr. Cleveland has not yet considered
any ebonites inthe civil-service rules. That
may come later, hut no such intentioa as
has been attributed to Mr. Cleveland, of
putting all minor appointments under a
commission and establishing a permanent
tenure, is entertained by him."

Ex-Secretary Noble IIa No Notion of Mov

Washington. May 21. Ex-Secrotary
Noble, in a letter received recently by a
gentleman in this city, emphatically de
nies the published reports that he intends
to make his home in Oklahoma, with a
view to representing that Territory in the
United States Senate when it shall have
become a State. Tbe ex-Secretary says his
recent visit to the Territory was on the in
vitation ot the leading boards of trade and
citizens there, and that he has no thought
of leaving St. Louis. The object of his
visit wa j to endeavor to nnite the commer
cial interests of Oklahoma with those of

Treasurer Neb'Sker's Views on Hanks.
N:v York, May 21. A morning paper
says that United States Treasurer K. 11.
Nebeker hopes to retire June I. Ho is now
in this city. He- came here to close cp his
ofticial busiuess. Mr. Nebeker said he did
not think the linanciafsituatlon alarming.
As to bank failures, he remarked: "They
furnish u strong indication that the people
of the country do not have as much confi
dence in banks as they did. In Indiana,
and. i think, all over the country, banks
aremakiug as few loans as possible, and
are trying to collect all they can. Con
fidence is what the bankers need to-day.
They cannot keep millions of dollars
locked np in their vaults. If a bauk has

STOIIM WOMLb'S FAIR GATES.
Workinfrmen of Chicago in Favor of Opening
the Exposition by Fcrc if Nccsary.
Chicago. May 21. At to-day's meeting
of the Trades and Labor Assembly the
Sunday opening of the world's fair was
discussed. President John Linehan. of the
assembly, declared that many workingmen
had been induced to subscribe for world's
fair stock on the representation that tbe
grounds would be open on Sundays. Mr.
Linehan declared that these men had as
much right to have their wishes consulted
as anybody else. He declared himself in
favor of giving tbe authorities a certain
time in which to open tho fair, and if the
wcrkingmen were still denied admission
tbev should march to the grounds and take
their rights by force. His speech was loud
ly applauded, but the assembly decided to
hold a mass meeting within a short time
for the purposo of discasaing the matter
further.
Tens of thousands of men and women
wandered aimlessly up and down the
thoroughfares outside the world's fair
grounds to-day. peeripg wistfully through
the closed gates of the White City, and
murmuring regrets at their inability to
gain admittance. None of tho louder
spoken oues called down maledictions ou
the powers that sealed the beauties of the
fair to them, bat, cd the whole, the
crowd was an orderly one. Men keot tbeir
tempers, evidently buoyed by the belief
that to-day would be the last day of Sun
day cloning. It was by far the largest bun
day turnout since the exposition opened.
Transportation linos and the army of fakirs,
located in the vicinity of the ground, did
an enormous business. From early morn
ing until dark tho elevated road, the
cable lines, the steamers aud the suburban
trains poured a continuous stream of hu
manity into the streets surrounding tho
grounds. Dozens of policemen were busy
in preventing a street blockade. - The
pressure tvas in a large measure doubtless
due to an ill-detined hope that the closing
order might be revoked during the day.
Many doubted the trnth of tho announce
ment that tho fair woild be closed to-day
until dcoied admittance by the gate keep
ers. The fakirs flourished as never before.
Tne crowd had money, and not being able
to spend it in the exposition, turned to tbe
cheap amusements in the vicinity. Hun
dreds of ehonters yelled thomsolves hoarso
and rendered tho day hideous in their ef
forts to secure their share of the golden
harvest. As night drew near the rush for
home began, and for two hours every
means of transportation was tested to its
fullest c.i: iicitr.
The Rev. James Miller, of th Marsbfiold-'
avenue Methodist Episcopal Church, sur
prised his congregation, this morning, by
devoting his sermon to a strong plea for
bunday opening of the world's fair. He
declared the greatest need of the time was
a relaxation of strict Sunday ob-ervance,
and that nothing could do so much to ad
vance Christ's teachings as Sunday open
ing. Action of Boston Churches.
Uoston, May 2i Just af:er midnight
this morning, tbe following telegram was
sent President Cleveland: -
Boston churches. In iiulon and separato meet
in, earnestly request executive proclamation
to allay damaging aud dishonorable suspense lu
regard to the Sunday opening ordered
iu violation of national law ny the di
rectory, encouraged to such action by tho
cormuiftsioners' refusal to declaro the law of Con
Kres linal. Debates and divislous and delays
of the commission have destroyed conti leuco iu
its decision, which neither tilde will
now ureent as decisive. In this nerl
ous cn&U wo rely on tho national
Kovernment to prevent nullification through Its
executive or Its Judiciary. We succest procla

What m Snnltarjr Visitor Saw and Heard.
To the Hdltnr ot the Inmanaio:ls Journ&L
The visit was made to a house in anal
ley. Tbe ground in front of the fence was
swept as clean as are many lloors. The
front and side yards were most inviting
with their lilacs, dowering currants and .a
graceful cleanly, widespreading cataipa
tree which shaded the side door, and a
driven well of delicious water, in spite of
the visitor's protests that inspection was
not in her line of business, tbe housewife
luuahingly and fearlessly led her to the
back shed. It may be confessed that the
lirst view gave the impression of
an indistinguishable conglomerate mass.
A vessel o! clean, dry hones, then a basket
of rags small bits, left after the house
wife had used all the available pieces for
dishcloths, house-cleaning cloths and car
pet rags so she said. Next stood a vessel of
empty tottle, and one of pieces ot old iron,
and no on. The mother explained, "l'heso
are Tommy V and he gets tho mosey for
them." Tho intrreet ot' the visitor became
keen, and a close inspection of the back
yard began. A pile of broken cement pipe,
bricks, brick-bats and stone lay in
one corner, "naved to iill nmo hole."
A number of good boards stood upriffht
not decaying on the ground against the
fence, awaiting use in repairs. A little
heap of smoking ashes showed whern twias.
paper and other combustible refufc had
been burned. A small vtH&el of kitchen
uarbugo awaited the collector. Tho vi
itor peered about, us if sbn missed some
thing. Sho peeped over the fence into a
rear alley: her face sho wrti tbat the miss
ing article was Lot there. S'o k1ucmI.
apprehensively toward tho vault, but sup
pressed her fears, and aiked, "Where aro
your old tin cans? It feels queer not to
seeanyt', The housewife, pointing to n
incloaure. replied. "This is their corner,
but they have iust been hauled away."
She was believod on the spot. Pointing to
lartro bone, the visitorsaid, "Hero is a tine
bone for Tommy's collection." "Ves."
said the mother, "but Fido hasn't
eaten all the meat oil it yet." This served
as a quietus, but, gathering her forces, tbe
visitor glanced over the ground and said.
T see no standing 6oapiuds. 1 see no hard,
damp place where you throw your dish
water." The housewife led her to a sink
a more wisely oonstrcted sink than any the
visitor had ever seen and said, "this
sink and tho vault are counccted with a
sewer, and I tell my friends who laugh at
me for living in an alley friends who live
away up in noisy, crowded, badly aired
blocks I tell them that I don't have no
bad smelling soapsuds or dishwater, or
worse, standing in dirty buckets about my
door. My waste water is a half a mile
away in a minute after I throw it in tbe
sink. No. indeed! no more old stnlly blocks
for tne. when 1 can have all this air and
sunshine and handiness"
The visitor shook hands with her and
turned homeward reading a new meaning
into the saying. "Half the world dou't
know how the other half lives," nor "what
they think." she added. How few, indeed,
would know that within "an alley" could'
be fouud such systemized order ana
economy, and such a sense of sanitary re
quirements. LniGIllISTKlU

Another Story of Sirs. Gougar'a Attempt to
Kick Up a How at the Congress.
Chic la o limes (Saturday.)
Trying to make a mountain out of a mole
hill was what a lew hysterical wouieu.
aided and abetted by au easily beguiled re
porter, attempted, yesterday, wbenthey
sought to make a real live sensation out
of certain proceedings of the wom
an's congress. 'Ihe .salient points
of that hue bit of imagination
are that a rule was promulgated by Mrs.
May Wright tiowall forbidding Mrs. Cou
gar to Nucak in tho congresses;'tbat Mrs.
Uougar carried the matter before President
Bonuey, of the auxiliary, and that Mr.
Bouney called into ooulerence the
leading odicers of the woman's
congress, among them Mrs. bewail,
who was Mrs. Cougar's deadly foe. Long
and loud was discussed the situation, and.
thougn the story fails to state just how the
dispute was settled, its startling denoue
ment is tho sudden llightof Mrs. bewail to
the wild aud woolly West to fill a lecture
engagement.
That Mrs. Sewall should for one moment
be placed before the publio iu such a posi
tion is a grievous wrong. Mrs. bewail, as
chairman of the congresa of representative
women, is the recognized hostess
of ladies, not only from ev
ery State in the Union, but from many
foreign lands. The otiicial representative
of the King of Norway and Sweden is her
guest. Mrs. bewail u the peer in refine
ment aud good taste of any woman iu the
world. Her management of the congresses
has been characterized by a delicacy, and a
fine sense of the eternal fitness of things
which could not be excelled.
- But there is a real comedy of errors in
the whole aliair. which, if the imaginative
reporter had not been in such leurfully
tragic mood, he might have discovered and
made much of. There is a rule, insti
tuted by the committee on programme,
prohibiting a certain woman from
speaking in tho congresses, and no one
bas ever authorized a rule excluding
her. It is cot Helen M. Cougar, how
ever. Mr. Young, the secretary of: tbe
auxiliary, knew of the rule, but dian't
know Mrs. Cougar, bo when that lady
called upon him, and in angry tones de
manded to know if there were such a rule
ana she the subject of It, he made up his
mind that a rule of that kind would just
about suit the case in hand, and answered
tho threatening questioner in the a form
ative. Straightway Mrs. Goagar hastened to
Kuchel Foster Avery secretary ot the wom
an's congress, and inormed her that Mrs.
bewail had had promulgated an Old er for
bidding her tospeak. Mrs. Avery had never
heard of tiuoh an order, but not for one mo
ment donbting the correctness of Mrs.
Cougar's statement, and. loyal to Mrs.
bewail, told Mrs. Uougar frankly that if
such an order had been issued, it was aa
eminently proper thing for Mrs. bewail to
do! Then there was blood on tho moon.
Mrs. Cougar's dearest foe doesn't question
her lighting ability and there was war.
But when Mrs. Vice President ileorotin
quietly informed Mrs. (Joazar that
the one woman on the . committee,
ou programme to suggest her name
as one proper to a appear among the list
of speakers was Mrs. May Wright bewail
all anger vanished and the sweet spirit of
peace brooded o'er tho s:ene, and Mrs. Cou
gar retired. But to clinch the thing, and
also'to serve as a balm lor any wound that
might haye resulted from the wordy fray,
tho following note wus sent to Mrs. Cou
gar: ily Dear Mrs. Go igar:
It has leen reported to me that an order was
issued discriminating against yon aa n speaker
in tho congress ot representative women. No
such order was ever ta.tued by tiie committee In
charge or the nrraucetueuts for a congress of
representative women or by tho board of organi
zation, over which I have tho honor of presiding.
Truly yours, Ellen M. Hlnkotin.

SPOILING A ROMANCE.
And It Was a Miserable Goat That Did the
Mischief.
New York IlrraM.
A certain young lady who lives in tbe an
nexed district has had her romance spoiled
by tbe unoalled-f or and gratuitous interfer
ence of a gluttonly-iiiclined tfoar. Tbis
young lady had a beup who had proposed
to her. Her parents objected to tbe match,
and forbade the young man to call on his
heart's idol. The young lady was desper
ate, as eligible beaus are not easy to find
in tbe suburbs. They resolved to elope.
The young man was to be under his lady
love's window at daybreak and signal by
means of a cord. It is almost needless to
state that tho other cud ot the cord was at
tached to one of tho largo members ot the
maiden's pedal extremities. The goat did
not rest easy that night, and was wander
in around the yard at an unreasonably
early hour iu the morning. After masti
cating ull the sardine boxes aud empty
tomato cans he discovered the pendulous
cord and resolved to take it iu as a dessert.
When the cord was drawn taut the goat
reared up on his hind legs m an ed'ort to
follow it up the side ot the house. He
found that his efforts were unavailing, and
ho gave a desperate jerk. Then the troublo
begun. The maid awoke. The goat gave
another violent pull that was almost as ef
fective as that exercised by a ward alder
man. The maid arose very suddenly from
her couch and' heroically smothered a cry
of pain. bhe stooped .o detaon
tho cord and at the same instant
the goat gave another jerk. The maid
lost her equilibrium and thought tbat she
had also lost her toe, hut the latter proved
to be an erroneous supposition, bherrawled
on all fours to the window and cried
hoarsely to her supposed lo er: "Don't
pull so. Augustus; I'll come dovn."
Then lollowea another attempt to un
fasten the cord. The goat was persistent,
however, and did not notice the appeal
save by several vicious nods of his head
that wero accompanied by a feminine cry
of pain from the tipper recions.
Crazed ny th pain she again called down
into tbe dark lies-:
"If you don't stop pulling liko that, Au
gustus. 1 won't conin down at all.r
Another savage jerk and a wail of bitter
anguish burst uncontrolled from her ruby

The PreserTittlon of the Forests.
a W. Whitney, in Harper's Weekly.
While the nroteotion of game has occu
pied the publio mind for a considerable
time, the preservation ef our forests hna,
had comparatively but reeent attention.
The past live years especially have seen
mora done In this direction than probably
the previous ten. l'reiident Harrison and .
his Secretary of Interior, Noble, brought
their influence to Lear in tbe good work,
with the most satisfactory results. Hy
their efforts alone no less than tif teen tim
ber reserves were established, which in
cluded 1.239,000 acres adjoining the Yellow
stone park; 4.000,000 in central California;
l,3o?.0O0 in southern California; 4.OO0.C0O in '
Colorado; 907.000 in Washington; 1,850,000 in
Arizona, comprising the tfrand canon of tbe
Colorado river, the site of tbe most rugged
and magmtlcent scenery probably in the
world; 311,000 in New Mexico. and l42.000ia
Oregon altogether upwards of 13,000,000
acres.
bnch an example by tbe government haa
bad its effect on tho Mates, and tbe general
agitation of the subject has done much for
tbe cause, not only in preservation of tim
ber land, hot in the protection of game.
Of all the States that have taken up the
irood tight, none has accomplished so much
as New York, and no einsle oflicial has
done so much as Governor Flower. Too
much praise cannot be given Mr. Flower
for lifting the matter of forest preserva
tion out of politics. It is to his efforts
alone, it may be said, that tbe "forest-pro-
York Legislature, received the serious con
sideration it merited, lie alone, of all in
political power, appeared to grasp the ne
cessities of tbe case, and in doing so be re
sponded to the earnest desire of tuose who
want to ece tbe forests perpetuated in good
or ucr. What these great breathing-spots
are to the people anyone who studies tbe
sltcation must realize. It is a subject of
general rejoicing that they have been iinal
ly secured.
