Oxk of the attractions of traveling in
England Las proverbially been the inns
at which solid comfort could be ob
tained at reasonable cost. Of late
years, however, the demands cf wealthy
tourists have increased the expense of
a sojourn at such establishments, with
out providing compensating advantages.
The interesting features of the old
hostclries have been sacrificed to the
demands of business. In remote country
inns, arcordin-to a late London jour
nal, pictures of famous old coaches,
dogs and horses, and the portraits of
local worthies, which afforded much in
terest to travelers, have been removed
to make way for the framed adrertisc
of brewers and distillers.
Fok many years past past a large,
long-leaf pine tree has stood near the
ford of Gum Swamp in Kershaw Coun

feated by the British forces in the war
of the Revolution. It has been handed
down by tradition that Baron DcKalb,
who received mortal wounds in that
battle, was laid undct this tree to rest
in its shade until a vehicle could be pro
cured to convey L:m to Camden. From
that time forward tho historic associa

it from molestation until the great for

As official German publication makes
the following interesting revelations
touching the pamphlet entitled "Berlin
Society," which recently created a con
siderable sensation in tbe political and
diplomatic circles of the continent. The
material that berved to compile the first
half of the work was taken frcm confi
dential letters which the former reader
to the Empress Augusta, Mmc. Gerard
addressed to the late M. Leon Gauihctta.
That French statesman's literary heircsa,
lime. Adam found them amongst his
pa)ers. The description of character is
due to the pen of an Alsatian named
Weiss, tutor in a Russian family. The
notes furnished by Ilcrr Weiss were
handed to Mmc. Adam by Mine, de
Kovikoff, who took them nith her to
Paris. Mmc. Adam, assisted by the
ex-Secretary of Lcgation.M. Otto dc Loe.
prepared the material for publication.
Possibly others contributed from behind
the scenes to tbe pamphlet in question;
but its principal authors wero the per
sons nboo mentioned.
The Sandwich islands boast of two
natural wonders, the largest extinct and
the largest active volcano in the world.
The former is located on tbe Island of
Maui, the summit being nearly eleven
thousand feet above the level of the sea,
and tho crater over forty-eight miles in
circumference. One can look down
into the crater two thousand feet, the
sides now terraced and cocrcd with
sandalwood, giant ferns and a wonder
ful profusion of flowers and shrubs.
The active volcano is situated in the
Island of Hawaii. The crater is situated
on a spur of llauna Loa, four thousand
feet above sea levcL The crater is not
a cone, bnt a great pit on a level beach,
nine miles in circumference. You go
down, down over this almost perpen
dicular wall eight hundred feet, nnd
stand on the floor of the crater. This
is the place cf eternal burnings, tho
house of everlasting fire of Hawaiian
mythology. The area at the bottom of
the crater is cot a liquid mass, but
fur miles and miles around there
spreads a scene of unearthly grandeur.
Five or six lakes cf tiro lie to the left
and right; the floor beneath is so hot
one can scarcely walk over it; Liva
oozes up uirongh the fissures. Hugo
cones twenty or thirty feet high, made
.by the babbles of lava, rise through the
seams and are cooled bv the air.

Mr. Edmunds the credit of carta? had
more U do with drafting tbe Thnnnaa
bill than Sesator Thannan, aid says that
last winter his bill calling for scmi-aa-nual
pajmeats by tho company; t tar
Government brought Gould to Edm-ad's"
feet and led to the hasty substitution of
Chas. Francis Adams, Jr., for Mr. DUIoa
as the President of the road. The propo
sition which the directors agreed to was
as follows:
First No more dividends to be paid
until alter Congress again meets.
Second All moneys due for Govern
ment transportation to be retained la the
Third The company ta pay forthwith
Into" the Treasury 8719,914, the atsoant
claimed under the Tsdratsa act for 1933.
The surrender Involved la these prop
ositions was wonderlaL For the first
time since its Incorporation the company
was brought to terms. This piaa was
submitted to the committee Jane 17. It
was accepted bat In terms not consoling
to the Railroad people. A
resolution was adopted that
upon these terms the committee
would defer farther action on the sub
ject until Congress meets again. The
directors passed the dividend, accepted
Dillon's resignation, and elected Adams
In his place. The $718,000 was deposited
with tie sub-treasurer at Boston. It was
a strange proceeding. A Senate com
mittee Is not authorized to enforce laws
nor to make agreements with corpora
tions whereby they promise not to act
upon any subject. The Union Pacific,
under ordinary circumstances, would
hare said to Mr. Edmunds I "What
ei.WL. ?L
reached by Ue courts." That wonld
bare been a safe answer to make, con
sldcrlng how easily courts and law
officers haTe treated the Union
Pacific Intead of that Mr. Edmaads
lays down terms acd the rail-
road yields what no law compels
It to surrender; places In the Treasury
nearly a million dollars, acd only pro
cures la return Mr. Edmunds' agree
ment to keep his hands off for fire
months. Would the railroad peoplo have
surrendered so completely unless they
knew tbey were at some oucls mercy?
Meanwhile, la the House the Pacific Rail
road Committee had taken this thing up
In earnest. All through the Spring they
struggled asainst delays caused by tho
railroad company's attorneys ca and off

opposition withdrawn, and the House bill
