tered hie feeling toward the Irish. Of
bitterness he was incapable: and of fear.
Now that these dangers are past, men
may make light of them; especially
tho?e whose interest it Is to relieve
themselves of suspicion. But I will pive
you a single sentence of Lady Spencer,
who remained by her husband's side and
desired to share, and did share, the perils
that environed him. Bald Lady Spencer:
"I don't think I ever quite realized
what the condition of things was till
in driving out I found that the aide-de
ramp on the seat opposite me had his
hand always on his revolver."
This, although there was always a
mounted escort, beside police and detec
tives in front and in rear of the car
riage. Such was the life they lived;
such was the methods employed. The
Irish, with their natural quick wit and
gallantry, had named the Viceroy's wife
Spencer's Faery Queen. But politics— it
was always called politics— made no al
lowance for poetry.
All this did not prevent Lord Spencer
from following Mr. Gladstone into the
Home Rule camp in 1886. It has been
said that if Lord Spencer had held out
Mr. Gladstone would have been forced
to abandon or greatly modify his Home
Rule bill. However that may be. Lord
Spencer's decision was a great surprise
to the Unionists and a great blow, and
they resented it with no common bitter
ness. They denounced him as a traitor.
They resented it socially as well as po
litically. I met Lord Spencer one night
at a house which, though of great im
portance and splendor, was a house
where a year or two before he and Lady
Spencer might or might not have been
seen. A friend said to me:
"Do you see th*- Spencers?"
"Yes. why not?"
"You know as well as I do that it is
the first time they have crossed thi3
"I knew nothing: of the kind, and if
you ask Lord Spencer he will tell you
you are wrong.''
He did not ask. nor did I. but after
a while I said to Lord Spencer:
' Well, 11 seems you do go out some
Half laughingly, but rather grimly, he
"I go when I am asked.'
And after a pause:
'You know very well how angry the
Unionists ar^. but would you suppose
that •- don't receive on° invitation
wherp we used to gr^t twenty?"
T fits a rhetorical way of putt ng
It i= liter ■ true.'
; I did not say so to Lord Spencer, but
I thought it almost as discreditable to
; the Unionists as I thought the Irish
1 attacks of a different trend on Lord
ripeneer discreditable to the Irish. I
record one as I record the other, and
in that spirit of impartiality at which I
always aim, and to which I do not al
ways attain. But this is a fine example.
Between a cancelled dinner card and a
shot from behind a •■fie" there is a cer
tain difference: but there need not be
, much difference between the spirit which
inspires the on*" and the other. If there
were hi all Eneland two people who stood
a? n«>ar the summit of things as subjects
can stand they were Lord and Lady
Spencer. Lady Spencer was a Seymour,
great-srranddauehter to the seventh Mar
quess of Hertford. Th<* first Earl Spen
cer «M grandson to th» third Earl of
Sund°rland. who married the daughter
of The first Duk" of Marlborough, and
comes down through a line of ancestors
-• ugulslied In public and in private
life. H*» was grandson to thai Lord A.l
thorp who. as Chancellor of the Excheq
uer, led the House of Commons, 1830
1534, and th*> two were singularly alike in
those personal qualities which in this
country confer upon the possessor of
them an authority -which mere talents
never confer. The late Duke of Devon-
Fhtr" was another example, and perhaps
the rno^T illustrious of all. Bide by side
with him in point of character, absolute
integrity, unselfish devotion to the state,
and courage, whether personal or polit
ical, of the highest order, stands that
fifth Earl Spencer who died yesterday.
Y e t that was the man whom other men,
of position not less than hi? and of char
acter heretofore spotless. Bet themselves
to persecute
t will take the late Duke of Westmin
ster, the first Duke, as an illustration of
the temp«r which at that time pervaded
the Unionist ranks. He had been Mar
quis of Westminster till 1874. when Mr.
Gladstone made him a Duke. He was a
Liberal, a Gladstorian Liberal. In testi
mony of his respect and friendly ad
miration for his creator he commissioned
Sir John Millais to paint Mr. Gladstone's
portrait: the finest of the four which
came from Millais's brush. In ISS6 or
15£7 the Duke caused it to be known
that he no longer wished to keep the
portrait, and he sold it, at a large profit.
to Sir Charles Tennant. In whose house
in Grosvenor Square it hung till Sir
Charles died, and is now, I think, to be
seer, in Sir Edward Tennant's house in
Queen Anne's Gate, with other canvases
of distinction.
The Duke's next act produced an ex
citement even greater than the selling
of Mr. Gladstone's picture. In 1887 he
had asked Mr. and Mrs. Robert Spencer
to dinner. Mr. Robert Spencer had late
ly married the Hon. Margaret Baring,
second daughter to Lord and Lady Bw
elstoke. Then it came to the. Duke's
knowledge that Mr. Robert Spencer had
been present at the dinner given by the
Eighty Club to Mr Parnell. and he
withdrew his Invitation. He was not
deterred by th* fact that the Invitation
to Mrs. Spencer had also to be with
drawn. In the vehemence of his hatred
u> Home Rulers, especially English
Home Rulers, he was ready to inflict.
and did Inflict, this grave discourtesy
upon a woman. There were other ways
In which he could have avoided or
evaded receiving Mr. and Mrs. Spencer,
but he chose none of them. Even the
Duke's friends, his political and personal
friends, thought him wrong; and to ex
plain his act he wrote a letter to Mr.
Spencer, which convinced nobody of
anything except that he had made one
more mistake.
I do not think that Lord Spencer was
insensible to these various evidences of
hostility, but he showed neither concern
nor resentment. He was too proud a
man. and his pride was of ■ kind which
made it impossible for htm to enter upon
asi- justification of himself. He needed

none. But he would Hometimes,, when,
asked, let a sentence or, two fall from
his lips which might irfvfl you a -hint,
though they never seamed meant as
explanations. Like so many others, he
felt the majric power; of Mr. Gladstone,
and in answer to a remark about Mr.
Gladstone's influence he once said:
"If you have ever been alone in a
room with Mr. Gladstone for half an
hour, you would not ask me why I fol
lowed him
In point of fact. I had not asked.

i and there is no foundation for the re

American press.
M. de Lagercranta was born in 1559 th 6

I was attacked by typhus fever and returned
Ito Sweden. Soon afterward he severed his
connection with the Salvation Army, and in
January, 1907, he was appointed minister at
"Washington, in succession to M. Grip. The
departure of M. Lagercrantz from the
United States on a "six months' leave of
absence" in October, IW7. gave rise to con
siderable comment in diplomatic circles in
Washington. It was even rumored that the
Swedish Minister had become persona non

Not lons after she came to Winfield with

that many of th« things which Freneau

Government's Report for 1906
First of Its Kind.
MINISTERS GOT $69,667,587
: New York's Buildings for Public
Religious Worship Valued at
A bulletin just issued by t V envrrnment
shows that there were 1W.R30 Christian min
1 isters in the United States in IPW. besides
j 1.0R4 Jewish rabbis, and that they increase
; at the rate of nearly four thousand a year.
j The average salary is IfiH". and there was
j raid to them in IMb a total of $fi?.667.557.
There are in Manhattan and Brooklyn
i scores of ministers whose salaries exceed
i $5,000 a year. The highest salary ever of
fered a minister to preach in New York,
' and slven out in a public call, was 515.000
; a year and a house, offered last >°ar by the
; Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church. It was
; declined. SeVeral ministers receive 515.00*)
, a year, and there are a dozen or more who
j fret 112.000. These salaries are the highest
; in the world, London and Berlin averages
j being hardly more than $3,900 a year.
The government shows the average sal
| aries of ministers in cities having 300,000
I population and over, for principal religious
bodies, to be: Baptist. <1,7?>3: Congrega
; tional. SI.fCS. Methodist. 51.542: Presbyte
: rian. 52.450; Protestant Kpiscopal. $T. 573:
! Reformed. $1.935: Roman Catholic, ?SS4. and
I Jewish rabbis, $1*91. .
The average salary of Church of Christ.
I Scientist, readers is only $234 for the whole
1 country, with $35:'. as the average in cities
: having SOO.noo population or more. The gov
l ernment explains this fact by saying that
' readers are practitioners as a rule and are
expected to earn their own support.
In actual money received Methodist min
isters get. most of all. the salaries* amount
i ing annually to $16,150,000 Baptists receive
the next largest sum, $10,323,000; Presbyte
rians. $7,610,000; Roman Catholics, 16.779.000;
; Episcopalians. $4,887,806: CongrregationaHsts,
i $:. 154.000; Reformed. 51.682,000, and Jews,
It Is estimated on the basis of these re
ports that in 1910 the sum of 500.000.000 Will
be paid to ministers of the United States in
persona! : H.-i.-.- and that, congregational
expenses, missions and extensions will in
volve an outlay this year of J200.000.000
more. These outlays are higher than ever
Values of church properties in various
cities ought to b«= increased by a fifth, and
for th«=- growth since the data were obtained
perhaps another fifth, or nearly that much.
The government finds the value of church
property in New York to he $153,953,740.
This does not include parsonages or hos
pitals or asylums simply buildings used
for public religious worship. Tt finds the
debts upon all of them to be $19,622,419, or
about 12.3 per cent.
Boston has invested in churches $27,000.
000. -with rights on them amounting to 7 per
c* nt of their value. Chicago has the same
sum invested, with 15% P pr cent debts.
Baltimore has $14,000,000, with debts of mm 1 *
per cent of the value: Philadelphia, $45.
000.000. with 3 per cent debts; Newark.
$8,000,000, with 7"- per cent debts, and
Washington, $10,000,000. with l r "- per cent
In New York City the proportion of debts
to valuation of properties on which those
mortgage debts rest is much higher amon?
Roman Catholics and Jews than amonß
Protestants. The government puts Roman
Catholic church properties in this city at
a valuation of 155.511.000, and finds the
debts on these properties to be 30 per cent
of their value Jewish places of worship
are. put down a-. $5,700,000 in value, with 19
per cent debts. In the Protestant list Bap
tists have the highest debt p*>rcpntage. 8^

Board of Health to Co-operate
with Columbia University.
Physicians Urged to Submit
Specimens of Suspected
Tissue for Analysis
In a new attack on- cancer, based finan
cially on the George Crocker Cancer Re
search Fund of Columbia University, the
N>w York City Department of Health has
R(rr^«>d to co-operate with the department
of pathology of Columbia: University, ac
cording to an announcement in "The Med
ical Record" issued yesterday.
In addition to the combination of the two
institutions named, it Is hoped that the
movement will receive the active support
of the physicians of the city, and the uni
versity has asked that in all possible cases
suspected tissue be submitted for analysis.
Dr. Isaac Levin, of New York, has writ
ten.in the same Issue of "The Medical Rec
ord" an article on "The Importance of
Early Recognition of Cancer," In which he
points out that the physicians" strongest
hope of curing the malignant growth lies
in the early recognition and early applica
tion of the knife.
"A malignant growth." writes Dr. Levin,
"i" in its early stages a strictly local
process. Cancer affects the general health
of the patient only at a late parted of its
Early Operation Essential.
No true specific method for the treatment
of cancer exists to-day. Dr. Levin gays, in
spite of the great progress of the modern
experimental research as to the disease, but
modern .surgery PS capable of effecting a
cure in eves' case of carcinoma or sar
coma, provided the operation is performed
in the early stages of the disease, before
dissemination into more distant parts of the
organism takes place.
Dr. I/evin illustrates in detail the diffi
culty of diagnosing cancer in the early
stages with the present knowledge concern
ing that disease, and says that it la due to
the fact that cancer has practically no
specific symptoms.
"The physician* must bear in mind." he
writes, "the possibility of the formation of
a malignant growth in every patient of
middle age and must be watchful for
symptoms of the disease." The earliest of
these, he says, in the early stages of can
cer, is hemorrhage, though often a mere
catarrh of the organ in which the srrowth
has started or even a slightly more than
ordinarily severe pain Is the extent of the
warning. He advocate? the exploratory op
eration, particularly when there is a possi
bility of a cancerous growth in the stom
ach. There la little or no danger in such
an operation, he says, and the huse impor
tance of the early discovery of the disease
fully justifies it.
"It may appear too emphatic to advise
even a minor operation on such a slight
indication." he write?, "but one must not
forgot that the onset of cancer Is very
insidious. that real characteristic symp
toms occur only at a late period, when
radii cure is impossible, and that, on the
other hand, the early recognition of the
disease, mean? nearly an absolute chance
for a radical cure."
Urge Physicians' Help.
The comparative ease with which sus
pected tissue may be obtained and sub
mitted to microscopical examination, he
says, Is the best weapon in the hands of
physicians with which to combat the dis
ease, and this, in conjunction with the fact
that such tissue, examined and correctly
diagnosed in - the early stages of the dis
ease, before its effect spreads throughout
the system, makes it imperative that physi
cians should take this step whenever a
patient of middle ase or over shows the
slightest symptoms.
"The George Crocker Cancer Researcii
Fund of Columbia University, as well as
the majority of European institution.-? for
cancer research.'" says Dr. Levin, "realize?
the necessity of awakenine the profes
sion to the importance of early diagnosis
of cancer.''
The idea of th; new fund, m Its appeal to
the medical profession of New York, i? that
in each case of suspected tissue given to
the pathological department of Columbia
for a microscopical examination the at
tending physician who submits the tissue
will furnish with it the information needed
for the statistical investigation which will
sum up the results of the new attack on
B\ the middle of October each collection
station of the Boird of Health will be sup
plied by Columbia University with jars to
be used for the specimens of the cancer
tissue encountered by the city's representa-
I Ires.
