UL J Jlpprsirf tloman of this oity,
JpsP 5Lr' 'w'1"e travelling in Eu
Ni"' ropo, made a fino
lacustrino collection nt Loko Luzerno. It
illustrated very beautifully tho transition
from ono period to another in tho history of
tho human race. To tho ethnological student
it was full of tho deepest Interest. An illus
trated articlo on tho collection oppoarod in a
B leading magazine. The gontlcman offered
tho collection to the Musoum if it would
open on Sundays. Tho offer wob dcolined
and theso choice specimens, which bo adorn
a musoum and aro of such groat eciontiflc in.
torcst to tho intelligent masses, were sent to
another oity. Tho gentleman is an alumnus
of Johns Hopkins University and ho sent tho
specimens to that institution.
This is ono instanco, and thero aro, doubt
less, others. Certainly ono cannot blamo on
earnest colloctor who has patiently got to
gether objocts which illustrated somo phase
in art anil science, for putting his collection
where it will do tho most good;, and honco,
tolocting a museum which is willing to do
cood to man, and to cnlargo his capacity for
Iho higher lifo even on Sunday.
Matthew O. D. Borden, President of tho
Department of Publio Parks, and by virtue
of tiio position a mombor of tho Board of
Trust' i of tho Musoum, is strongly in favor
of opt-tingit on Sunday. " I am certainly
ilosirous of Boeing tho Museum open on Sun
flays." ho said. n Whether it is open or not
thousands of people will go to Central Park
on Sunday afternoons. So it would not draw
people away from church. Those poople who
go to church morning and afternoon will not
givo up thoir church for tho Museum, even if
It bo oponod. On the other hand, hundrods
who go neither to tho Park nor to ohuroh,
would bo drawn thero, greatly to thoir advan
tage. "Tho estimatoof expenses necessary for
m opening tho Musoum on Hundays seemod to"
havo figures a little biggor than they needed
to bo. This estimate will be considered, und
any reasonable expense will probably bo mot
by tho city. But If the pubfio, which seems
to havo so just a claim to this privilege, is de
filed Beeing tho pictures and works of art on
Sunday, it is not trriurobablo that something
will be retrenched from tho present annual
appropriation which tho city makes to tho
Museum. I hope it will soon throw opon Hb
John Bigolow, who was seen in his houso
In Oramorcy Park, said: "It is a matter
which I think I ought to express myself on
first before tho Board. If I were called on
suddenly even thon to voto on tho subject, I
don't know that I should feel prepared
to do so without preparation. It is
a point that would requiro somo
thought. Not that my mind is not
fully raado up as to the proprioty or right of
opening the Musoum on Sunday. I have
i quite a clear idea on tho point, but you must
oxcuso mo from expressing it. Do you not
think that tho trustees can arrango the mat
ter? Or do you think the papers have got to
do it ? Thore are several things to bo con
sidered in sottling the question."
This remark of Mr. liigelow showed a fool
ing that exists to a certain extent among tho
trustees, and which was known to be thero.
Somo of them feel a little nettled at tho agi
tation of tho matter by Tub Eventoo World,
as if their private business was being meddled
Thero is no ground for this sentiment. Tho
publio feoling in tho matter is that tho Mu
seum, an institution occupying toward the
public the position of something intended
lor its benefit, should be opened on Sundays.
This is also tho bolief of Tim Evening
Would, and it is only doing its legitimate
work in trying to advance the interests of tho
public by showing the grounds for this view.
No ono questions tho great merits of tho
gentlemen on tho Board who havo given so
generously of thoir wealth and of their per
sonal labor to advance the interests of tho
Museum. It is because they ore so deserv
ing of gratitudo that it is bolieved that they
will acquiesce in what tho publio desires as
soon as thoy are convinced that the publio
desiros it, and rightly. Thore is no trench
ing on personal rights. Tho two or throo
membors of tho Board who aro swnyod by a
religious prejudice against the opening may
bo expected to oppose it. If they think it is
wrong, what else can they do ?
The others are affeoteu by motivos of ox
podiouoy. If thoy were convinced that it
was for tho good of tho people and of tho
Musoum thoy would doubtloss voto for tho
;t Sunday opening. It 1b by discussing a point
.) of that kind that the issuo js mado clear.
This in what The Evkninu Would is doing.

TO FOKM OXE DIQ DISTRICT.
Prop'oalna;. to Conaotldnto nil the 'Longshore
men's Hocletlea. '
A movemont is on foot in this and
other cities to form rt National District
Asssombly of 'lougshoromou and dock
laborers generally, within tho Jurisdic
tion of tho Knights of Labor.
A convention of delegates from 'longshore,
mon's organizations in tho United States and
and Canada has boon Jcallcd to meet on
March 1 at Pythagoras Hall, 131 and 130 Canal
street, in thiB city.
Leadors of tho 'longshorcmon's unions and
local assemblies, aided by tho organizers of
tho Knights of Labor, aro moving actively in
tho matter, and it is bolieved that an or
ganization iuoluding 50,000 members will
bo formed early In tho spring under
tho National Trades District rule which
gives each body of workers so organized full
control of thoir own affairs, and assures thorn
the moral uud financial support of tho entlro
Tho projectors of this sohomo also propose
to organize tho 'longshoremen or Groat
Britain in like manner, and establish an in
ternational organization or board.
There aro in tho Ordor of tho Knights of
Labor at the present tiruo 210 local assumblios
of 'longshoremen and dock laborers, and a
committee having chorgo of tho now organi
zation scheme has received favorablo replies
from 183 locals. It is thought that tho others
will also favor tho projoct.
Tho disastrous striko of last wintor caused
many of tho 'longshoremen to withdraw from
thoir old organizations. It is believed that
with a now ordor of things thoy will
rejoin. Thero aro ton local
assemblies of 'longshoromon in good stand
ing in this city, Brooklyn, Jorscy City and
Hoboken, and four others aro about to ro
organizo. All these locals will send delegates
to tho convention. Boston 'longshoremen send
word that thoy are pleased with tho idoa and
will sond representatives. Thero aro five
local assemblies in that city, with a member
ship of 4,200.
Mr. Bailoy, of tho Gcnorol Executive
Board of tho Knights, has promised to do
all in his power to aid tho movement, and
has recommended it to 'longshore,
men's unions. Ho also recommends that
the proposed National Assembly adopt sub
stantially tho constitution, and by-laws of
tho Miners' and Mine Laborers' National As
sembly, No. 135.
Invitations havo been sont to all open
unions of 'longshoremen in this and neigh
boring cities to sond dolcgatos to tho conven
tion. In Canada thero aro nine locals of 'long,
shoremen. They, and tho organizations at
Savannah, Now Orleans, Baltimore, Charles
ton and othor Southorn cities, as well as tho
great body of dock laborers at the various
ports on tho lakes will join in tho scheme.
When tho National Assombly is formed a
delegation will bo sent to Great Britain to
confer with 'longshoremen thero in regard to
an international organization.
The protectors of tho new organization Bay
that its policy will be ono of peaco and conservatism.

as tho Intor-Stato Oommorco bill at present

" What clubs would bo in tho now organi

" Why, thoy talk of having Washington,

The lozengo, with tho round pioco of wood

dealer thought the lozengo was a split chock,
and as " Old January " won the bet the
dealer shoved him u dollar chock.
"Old January" wagered tho chock and

fSPZCIAL TO THE ITINISO WORLD.!
PnrLADEia'iiiA, Nov. 15. Tho students of
tho University of Pennsylvania aro excited
and angry over an order from tho faculty
yesterday forbidding them to smoko on tho
property coutrollod by the college Hereto,
fore tho students havo smoked their cigars,
pipes and cigarottcs without any ono to say
them nay. Tho matter was brought up bo
foro tho faculty. It was tho general opinion
that smoking was not tho proper thing within
tho bounds of a big college building, and
that tho Btudents wore certainly not better
students for so persistently using tobacco
during hours which should be devoted to
their studies. It was finally decidod to nmko
a stand against what many of tho professors
look upon as an evil, and forbid it. A stu
dent will bo given two chances. If detected
violating tho now rules ho will bo warned
twice, but if he still persists he will bo re
ported to the provost, uud the Committeo on
Discipline will take cognizance of tho case.
The students discussed tho matter last
night, and it was decided to get up a petition
asking tho faculty to sot apart ono room in
tho building as a smoking-room, where those
who aro such ardent lovers of tho weed that
they cannot do without it for a f ow hours can
sock a few moments solaco lu thoir pipes,
cigars or cigarettes. It is said that thoro will

signatures to such n petition.
