On the last subject the circular says: No adequate or satisfactory provision Is made in our statutes for the restraint, discipline and instruc tion of girl truants. By law boys are committed for a iM-nod not exceeding two years to a county truant school. Provision Is made for committing girls to the industrial school at I^ancaster, but no provision is made for a limit of time during minor ity. To this feature of the law. If to no other, there Is manifest objection, and Judges are re luctant to commit to this school. The question arises. Should not a State parental school be pro vided, to which girl truants may be committed for a limit of tin*? not to exceed two years, and where they may receive the fostering care of a good home and Bcnool? The committee asks your assistance m ascertaining whether there are pirl tru.-mts or girls absent from school by reason of parental neglect in your locality. Keien Cnurchlll discusses In "The Century" the characteristics of the presidents of women's clubs and comments upon the field filled by these or ganizations In the %Vest: If any one should doubt the desire of the small, remote town to make Itself Intellectually worthy, let him read the programme prepared for the win ter work of a club which occupied a prominent social position on the prairies of the Middle West. Here &re some of the tonics for papers, all to bo prepared without the advantages of a library, either public or private, and with no educational advantages beyond a local newspaper: "Was the Victory of "Wellington at Waterloo a Triumph of Medievalism or of Democracy?" "Is the French Republic or Ours the Best Illustration of the Po litical Ideas of Rousseau?" "The Race. Problem of Southeastern Europe," "The Pessimism of the Russian Novel." "Will the -Common Hatred of the Japanese and Chinese for the European Form a Bond Strong Enough to Hold China for the Yellow Man?" "Will Christian Ethical Ideas be Mora Easily Grafted on the Cold Selfishness of Con fucianism or on the Self-respecting Ideals of Buddhism?" r>oes not this Illustrate the idea that when (in American woman determines to do a thing, she does it. without stopplng'to Inquire If it is among the possibilities? How well she does It is another matter. My recollection suggests that In this case ehe laughingly evaded most of the questions, and made up by general cordiality and light refresh ments, by no means a poor substitute in a border town barren of social life. "The table decorations at Vienna are more, fanci ful, and are subject to many changes." says a writer In that city. "Sliver was banished last season, nothing but Innocent white being allowed. This winter it is to be restored, but everything must be small and ornamental. In the centre the faphlon is to have a number of silver vases hold ing flowers and foliage encircled by a chased silver ring. The flowers match the prevailing color upon the table. .At Darmstadt, during the exhibition. famine decorated a handsome show table Arti ficial jasmine is now ofu-n used with dark red roses in the centre of the dinner table. The next vase has roses of a paler shade, and so on. until white is reached. Dahlias are used in the same way as they come to the Viennese market in won derful shades. English and French fashions are more nearly imitated each year, as. for instance, desert spoons and forks are now In general use. "When real flowers are employed, It is a costly affair for the entire table is edged with them, the bouquets for each guest matching these. The profusion of flowers employed at all entertain ments is. however, less expensive than It appears, owing to the enormous quantities of rich blooms which come from Italy." Not long ago an Interesting topic of debate was started at the Diet of German Women, then sit ting in Eisenach. The mover of the subject dis cussed the common practice with women of running down as much as possible the prices of the articles they purchase. "Was this," she asked, "ethically defensible? "Women rush from shop to shop in order to purchase their goods a few farthings cheaper and often under cost price, and in doing so they are quite ignorant of the fact that wages have to be thereby diminished and the number of hours of labor lengthened." In connection with this subject the speaker also Bald: "People have no idea of the misery th"y cause to many small traders by unpunctua'llty in the payment of small accounts! And women who lnbist upon making their pur chases late In the evening do not seem to con sider that by doing so they rob thousands of shop employes or the hours of repose and recreation they stand in need of." The diet resolved to send a petition to the federal governments of Germany praying that women inspectors of factories should have an academic training, putting then on Jin in tellectual equality with male Inspectors, and that they should be assisted by women of the factory class who have had practical experience In the work in question. ZE~S'IOR PARLOR OPENING AT VASSAIL THE SOPHOMORES AND FACULTY THE GUESTS OF THE FIRST CLASS. Pouglikeepsle. N.

WHY THE AMERICAN' WORKING-MAN IS SAID TO BE SUPERIOR TO THE ENGLISH AND THE GERMAN. The article given below has appeared In papers in Belgium. France and England, and was sent from this country for publication !n Europe by M. Rudolph Meyhoffer, who came from*Brus.«els as an International delegate to the Young Men's Chris tian Association jubilee in Boston last June. He stayed long enough to study industrial and educa tional conditions In the leading States. Including the question of American trade supremacy: England and other European countries are anx iously asking for the causes of the commercial supremacy of the United States. A recent number of the English edition of the "Review or Reviews "^Cassler'a Magazine" (an English periodical) con tains an Interesting series of short articles by some of the most prominent engineers and business men In the United States upon the question of American competition. , .'.' ■ Most of the -writers agree in saying that the American -workman is the chief agent in enabling American manufacturers to take, lirst place in the world. Walter MacFarland. of Plttsburg. gives one Important reason for this. He says: •it appears that the American workmen are much better timekeepers and far less given to dissipation than those in Great Britain. One of the best firms of British shipbuilders recently Hat.-., that there is a loss of time amounting to nearly .■■■ per cent due largely to drunkenness, if anything approaching these tigures Is true generally, there can be no surprise that (English) firms open to competition from well managed American works should have a hard time." In Inquiring as to the cause or this greater sobriety of the American, the, fact appears that twenty years ago business Interests In the UnUea States paid no attention to the effect of the beverage- use. of alcohol or of tobacco on working ability. About that tlm* tho now almost universal Etudy of physiology, which Includes with other laws of health those Which relate to the nature and effects of alcoholic drinks and other isarcoH'.-t. began to be a legal requirement fur all pupils in the public schools of this country. During the last ten or fifteen years the children have been carrying rroin the schools to the )• --'«•■» of the 75.0J0.Ww people of the United Static t!i« story of the evil nature and bad effects of alcoholic drinks and other narcotics. As a result of the diffusion of this knowledge the railroads of the United States now almost uni versally refuse employment to men who drink, whether on or off duty. Carroll D. Wright's Labor Bureau Investigations show that more than 75 per cent of the employers of skilled labor In the united States require total abstinence of their employes, and to per cent of the employers of unskilled labor demand the name. These requirements, the cordial acquiescence in them by the employed, and the commercial su premacy which this knowledge h< Ipe.l to secure to the United States, have been promoted by the truth taught by the school that alcoholic drinks injure working ability. The different reception given by workmen to the employers' demand for abstinence where scientific temperance 's not taught In the public schoola is well Illustrated by the following Incident: The manager of nic Borsig factory In German* recently posted an order forbidding' the workmen to bring Into the factory beer or other spirituous liquors, or to drink the same during working hours. The workmen, numbering over a thousand, held a meeting, and objected to this order. The next day they conspicuously carried In their beer. During the excitement caused by the order a pamphlet appeared, by an old factory official, who affirmed thai the use of alcoholic drinks was detri mental to the laborers own Interest. He referred to the cleverness and sobriety of tho American workmen, which makes thorn able to do very exact and precise work, which he says Is not possible in German Industry, because of tho drinking habits of the laboring classes. The American workman doe* not resent the em ployer's demand for abstinence, because he has learned, often from Ills child in public school, that alcohol not only dulls the rain, but weakens that nerve control of muscle that Is necssi'.ry to the precision essential for fine work. The nomination for knighthood of Sir Hlrnm Maxim, the American born Inventor, for his work In England, was one of the last official acts of Queen Victoria. In an article In the June number of "The World's 'Work." Sir Hirßm furnishes in direct testimony to the .same point. While describ ing the results of the English trade unions, be says: "The English workman spend* a great part of his earnings In beer, tobacco and betting: he has no ambition." Of course not. for beer In dulling the brain dulls ambition. "The American work man.** he says, "wishes to get nn: he accomplishes a great deal more work In a day than any Other workman in the world." England Is beginning to see the difference in re sults between occasional talks by temperance ad vocates to school children end the systematic graded public school study of this topic required by law in the United States. At a recent meeting In Birmingham, addressed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the presiding of ficer. Edwin Smith, said: "We are being beaten in skill . . . by America. Sh> 1 has been lavish in spending money In educating Th« brains of her people, while we have been lavish In poisoning them. If we spent per head on al cohol the same ns America, mir <lrink bill would be about £86,000.000 less than It now Is. We can not succeed commercially while w« are hr.nil- Clipped in this way to the extent of 4S IST cent. The great mass of the working 1 people in this coun try are totally ignorant of the effect of drink." He said that England ought not to leave the edu cation on this subject merely to the temperance so-i'tles but that it "should be undertaken by the Slate. Surely if the State must encourage the traffic for revenue. It should in fairness educate every child in government schools ar to the nature and danger of alcohol, aridvthe bfn'-flts of total abstinence."

The Women's Republican Union League of the United States and the Women's Republican Union League of Brooklyn have resumed hostilities, but this time the cause of the warfare is the name of the newer organization, and not the famous teapot, which threatened last spring to embroil the whole borough. , The two societies were originally one. but an elec tion In which Mrs. Kate M. Bostwick and Mrs Emma Fisk both claimed the presidency because or a tie in the votes, produced a division, and the two factions each "set un housekeeping" under the leadership of Its own chosen head. On Saturday the seceding members, who an known as the" Women's Republican Union League of the United States, appeared before- Justice Maddox and demanded an Injunction against Mrs. Bostwick and her followers, who. after the separa tion, were Incorporated as the "Original Republican Women's League of Brooklyn." The plaint ffs claim that the action of the .defendants is by the assumed title deceiving the Republican party and Injuring their own work. The defendants, or course submit yards of affidavits, in which they assert" that the contrary Is true -The motive power In the action." they say, "is Jealo and that to be mistaken for members of the other or ganization would bean insult."

The purposes of the association, as defined in Its certificate of incorporation, are the erection and maintenance at Canton. Ohio, of a suitable memo rial to the late President, and raising the necessary funds for said purposes: and after fully providing therefor the surplus of such funds, if any. to be devoted to such memorial as may be provided for the late President at the national capital. The memorial will be erected at Canton, that city having been his home throughout his public life and se lected by him as his final resting place. The memorial is to be, in the highest sense, the sincere expression of ail the people of the country of their love for President McKinley and of their admiration for the qualities expressed so eminently In his life and deeds. It Is the purpose to have the, offerings of the people voluntary, with a full opportunity to all to contribute. The co-operation of the Governors and officer-? of the States and municipalities of the United States, and all religious, educational, labor, civic, patriotic, fraternal, benevolent and other organiza tions Is invited. All public officials, organized bodies and the press are requested to take Immediate steps to secure, at the. earliest possible time, a full response to this appeal. The association looks to the press of the country to lend its efficient aid to the collection and forwarding of subscriptions. The association will prepare and distribute to all donors to the fund a souvenir certificate which will be worthy of preservation, as evidence of the holder's participation in the work. The name and postoffice address of each contributor should be forwarded to the treasurer of the association, with the fund remitted, for preservation in the perma nent archives of the association. It Is hoped that the response of the people will be so liberal that a memorial may be erected which will fittingly honor the memory of our martyred President and emphasize their loyalty to our In stitutions and their abhorrence of that spirit of lawlessness which Inspired the assault upon his life.

I- SPNOTf APPEALS FOR PLENTY OF SUNSHINE. FRESH AIR AND BATHS. A large r.umb^r of young men gathered in tho lecture hali Of the West Side Branch of the Young Men's Christian Association. No. 318 West Fifty-seventh-st., yesterday to hear the Rev. George 1... McNutt's address on "How the Other Half Ought to Live." Mr. McNutt Is the Presby terian minister who voluntarily became a "Dinner Pail Man." He is a graduate of Princeton. A few years ago, in order to l<\irn how the "other half lives and how it ought to live, he gave up preach ing and minglf d with workingmen as a day laborer, doing whatever he could find to do. He had a hard experience. Mr. McNutt declared that those who lived in the best streets, trying to keep up appearances, and those who were always looking for the earmarks of so-called aristocracy, were missing God's golden opportunity of mingling with the masses In the manner of Christ. He added: This problem of how the other half ought to live Koes far ba.-k of political economy or creed. From the point of view of political economy we talk aboul men as so mnny animals, as If we would like simpiy to keep them still or out of sight, like unruly children. The question must be considered with reference to man's relation to God. and this Is back of cv rything except religion— religion, not creed. First of all I claim for the other half the right to sunshine. I don't believe that any theory of government will ever be practical unless it rests on a theory of sunshine. If we are going to be charitable we ought to give the poor people fresh air. Churches and tenement houses are the most poorly ventilated places. Our position in eternity is not tr> be determined by creed <t social standing, but by our attitude t<iw:\rd th.- other half. Somehow, when a man is hungry God seems s long way off. Do not think thiit because one man has deceived you that all hungry me:i are tramps. I have lived among them. and 1 know better. Our attitude toward those people will determine the nature of our reward. Mr. McNutt attributed the recent reform move ment in this city to the efforts of Dr. Felix Adler. who. he >:tid. had first been made aware of the terrible conditions in the city by a little boy who had told him that he knew of habies who died be cause they could not get proper treatment and frfsh air. "Another thing that I want to call your attention it- is the scarcity of baths," said the speaker. "The opportunities for men are meagre enough, but those for women aro Infinitely worse."

PROFESSOR REES PREPARING TO TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS. IF THE SHOWER ARRIVES. The expected great shower of leonids may ap pear on "Wednesday. Thursday and Friday of this week. For the last two years professional and amateur astronomers and large numbers of photographers have waited for their comtnsr, but they have been 111 repaid for their observations. This great shower of sheeting stars was looked for about November 14. ISPO. and on the corre sponding-days in lf>H"i. Several hundred meteors were recorded in each year, but the shower failed to appear in Its promised splendor. The last time they appeared in considerable num bers was in ISrtri and IStJT. As the meteors are expected to reappear about every thirty-four year?, they ar? due this week. In view of this, preparations are beinsr made to observe- them In the best possible manner if they come. Their expected coming:, however, has not aroused so lively interest as it did in t9t*Mmi 1000. John K. Rees, professor of astronomy at Columbia University, said to a Tribune reporter yesterday afternoon: "If the regular time honored shower appears, from l.r»flO to 2.<~>i>o meteors may fea < counted In an hour. If it comes in the night if will prob ably last two or three hours. But As best calculations so far made seem to indicate at tractions of the planet? so BBBftvrNßfj that the meteor pwarm has been pull^ii out of ita Old path, and now passes through the plane of the earth's orbit nearer the sun by sBBTC than one million miles. "Of course, if that caleafeatfcßsi is correct we will sac no shower, but there ar>^ some elements of uncertainty in this ca'.eulation -.\ M< h make astronomers wish to watch for Iks shower. "I have made arrangements to •keerve- and to photograph it with Charles A. Post at Bayport. Long Island. Mr. Post has an eaeePeart equip ment. I also expect to be assisted there by other persons, who will help count the meteors visible to the eye. Columbia Iniverslty has no adequate instruments for such observation mounted at its new site. In case the shower comes, observations will be made at the- uni versity by Professor H. Jacoby and Dr. S. A- Mitchell. There will probably be a number of other observers scattered throughout th» city, who will send to me reports about what they saw. The shower may come on the night o? November 13. 14 or IS The chances se^-m to b» that it will come, if it comes at all, soon after midnight on November 14." The meteors are called leonids because' they radiate from the constellation Leo. According to astronomers the constellation Leo rises shortly before midnight on November 14, and it is not well in view till 1 a. m. It can be found readily by using the pointers in th" r>ipper In a reverse direction from the- customary use in finding the North Star. HARVARD TO PHOTOGRAPH DISPLAY. Cambridge. Mass. Nov. 10.— The showers of leonids whi<-h failed to appear last year at thl3 time are expected this week. and. extensive prepa rations have been made at the Harvard UMMtssVf observatory to photograph them. Harvard has calculated that the meteors will be easily visible throughout New-England, provided they display with a fair amount of hnehtness, and. under tha belief that the leonid* will be well worth seeing, the bells of the .-ity will he toßed la awak-n tha Inhabitants at the moment of the appearance o* the heavenly bodies.

Copenhagen, Oct. 2?.— T*e fruit crop m Denmark is nearly a failure this season. Apples are espe cially scarce and in consequence dear. sel!irs? !r\ wholesale as high as 13 cents a pound. German, Russian and French apples are being imported. Some of the commission men in Copenhagen will try to import American apples. They complain, however, of the packing an I terms of sale in New» York. Russian apples are carefully packed in ex celsior in large boxes, and will stand shipping 1 and storing a IsssJ time. The American apples, whichi are packed in barrels, do not keep well. Danlsa buyers say that many American apples would be sold here if packed in the Russian manner. They also complain that New-Tori houses demand cash payment before shipment and ship goods at buyer' 3 risk. American apples can now be had in Hazn» burg at from 21 to 2^ m.trks a barrel; in Hull. T> to a shillings. COULD SOT GET PAUPER /.V ALUSHOUSR AUTHORITIES WOULD NOT RECOGNIZE AN tT2C* USUALLY DRAWN COMMITMENT. J ' The compassion of Magistrate Pool was aroused ; yesterday when, in the Harlem Police Court, he saw before him a decrepit, poorly c!ad old man. whose flowing white hair touched his shoulders. Th» prisoner was Louis Martin, sixty-eight years old. who last lived in a lodging house at No. 2.317 Third avenue, and who was charged with being a vagrant. So Infirm was Martin that he could only hobtjla with the aid of a walking stick ar.d an umbrella. "I'm sorry for you." said Magistrate Pool, after the old man had explained that he had no money, no home, and so had to beg. "and I won't send you to the City Prison. I'll send you right straight to I the almshouse " Before Magistrate Pool lay the ordinary paper of commitment, directing the warden of the City Prison. to receive and detain the person of "Louis Martin": he drew his pen through the printed words "warden of the City Prison" and In writing substi tuted "superintendent of the almshouse." With this paper and the old prisoner in his custody- Policeman Teevan tried unsuccessfully ■> for fly« hours to get the old man admitted to the alms- The policeman first 'took Martin to East Twenty ..ixth-st where the Charities Department boat docks Martin was not allowed on the boat. "That commitment is no good." the policeman was told. Teevan telephoned to Sergeant Delaney. of tha East One-hundred-and-twenty-slxth-st. station, ask ing for Instructions, and he was advised to take the old man to the Superintendent of the Outdoor Poor. The officials in the superintendent's office refused to take charge of the old prisoner on the ground that the commitment was —Improper." Teevan went to East Seventieth-^., hired a rowboat arid took the old man over to the almhouse in it. The keepers of the almshouse would not receive th» old man They couldn't legally do so. they said. Finally it was decided to keep the old man over night in" the East One-hundred-and-twentr-sUth-st station This morning Martin will be arraigned ; again In the Harlem court.
