McGinn, a truck driver, eighteen years old, approached
Uayde and attempted to thrust his hand into llto
pocket of the latter. James K. Hastlnello, a lormcr*
clerk in the employ ol the railway company, inler
lered, unit told the youth that ho had better not dis
turb Hayde, it the litter should wake up no "might
give him a thump " Hayde, thereupon, arose from
the sloop and tbruu McGinn aside. In a mo
ment the two meu wore srullllng in tlio

A rarclul examination ol these hptirsK will show that
the petroleum trade Is scarcely second :u importance
to any In the country, and tno idea that it can ho tam
pered wnb In ihe interests ot s few speculators is
munstrnus. No. sir," continued the merchant, "I am
noi short ol oil, end I only deal in it on orders, but 1
look upon tho whole question in a large way, and I think
that auyihing lending lodisturb trade by combinations
or uuuatural -corners' la hurtlul generally and brings
ulsciedit on our while mercantile system."'
Messrs. SchlefTelin A Co., ibe drug and oil dealers at
the rorner ol William nud Reckniaii streets, stated to
the writer iliat they had formerly been interested
largely in oil anil o:l rcBnerie*. but they were now
oni of the business and ouly viewed Ihe present com
plication with a curicsity totally romoved Irom in
U An' officer ol tho Maritime Exchange said that ho
perceived no particular movement in oil Irrlghis, and :
ihore seemed lo be no extra Inquiry In connection i
with iho anticipated war in Europe. As lar ?s he had ,
beard shippers converse on the situation there sccinod 1
lo be eoiisideraldo uneasiness among them ?a lo tho ?
determined attitude of Hie combination. Al twonly- I

crest a dliferenco* between it and i ruue oil, which is I
selling for about twelve and a half cents si the wells,
and exporters will not pay Iho price until they sre j
obliged la It w*a on account ol its cheapness and ?
flno illuminating properties ihal petroleum was Intro- I
duct-d so generally throughout Europe and the Orient, ,
and il the price is lo ha rawed by such apparently artl

"*A visit was paid lo shopkeepers on various streets
who had placed petroleum in their stores som i time
since on account of the high price or gas, and Ihe geu
I cral opinion seemed lo be that If Ihe price of petroleum,
was to be advanced by a combination, lis use would
have lo bo abandoned, and tho pooplo ha thrown
again on
tub *r*rr or tir oak compambs.
In that rase it would be plain i Hal ihu result would
be a repetition ol the exiorlions that caused petroleum
to be very largely substituted lor gas in Brooklyn and
New York.
It will thai be seen Hist the questions opened up
p-eeent some novel and Interostlug leatures, and if tho
power of public opinion docs not step in to prevent a
combination hnrtlul to the interests of tue poorer
classes the results msy bo as damaging as I hose that
followed the coal monopoly with its long train ol die

You doubtless have not torgot that I wanted to get
permission from the city authorities to aupply tho eity
with salt water for numerona usos required, whereby
twenty flvo per rent of our fresh water would ha eared
for domestic purpose* and rave our city from a water
famine. This 1 foreshadowed al the various meetings
of tho Hoard ol Aldermen; but those gentleman ware
over-persuaded by Commissioner Campbell, who used
mnny erroneous ataioment*. and also preecntod quite
plausibly written papers, which Ailed your vuiuablo
columns with his now exploded Gioory and has now
brought it* to a water famine, lis asked ?l.e rlty au
thorities lor $20,000,000 to give an abundance ol what
he cannot gut?water. 1 omy .i?kcd ti o city lo givo us
the privilege 01 laving the pipes throughout the city
and a lax of twenty rente per running toot frontage on
eaeh ally lot, which tb# owner* would cheer
fully pay, and tu bnvu a sinking mod
that would hslp to pay off the Imnicnn elty debt that
ha* boo* created by such nuar-sigbted ineu as Com
missioner Campbell. Had wo been allowed to put our
plan In operation, ore ibtu the city wooiu have bad the
(treat auxiliary ol the water* of tba Atlantic Ocean and
no water famine at tbia moment. I must tell
public iliey will b?to to come to the u?e of stll water
before loon, and tho sooner tho belter, us tli? popula
tion of this great inelro|iolla ia locreaains ton rapid
dogree, while the fresu water I* decreasing. V,.
not be well for tbe Hoard of Aldermen to reconsider
their action lu relation to the outlay ol $30,000,000 for
what they rnnuot get and pas* an ordtnauce to intrn.
duce^ait water through a private company of our
citizens that have the welfare ol our city at heart, or
pot it to the vote of our citizens at our next election ?

I sincerely hope that llio rnh question, which is
Interesting not a few of your renders, will bo finally

twenty-five eenta the trip or Itfly rents for tho round

loriable tranalt, and I know ol no place where we need
it so hadlv as In ibis city and Brooklyn. Many ot u.s

Plymouth lector* room wu as crowded a* uaual laat

was observable. Iter. Fred Hall came In sod took ?
back seat to listen to the utterances ot the brother he
protease* to love so vvoll. Alter the preliminary exer
cises Mr. Bceeher saidOne ol the leaat understood
and least understandable portions of Scripture is thai
contained in the eighth chapter of Romans, and tt U
evidently so In tne mind of the Apostle Paul, and yes
tbo contonts of that cbapter wrought far more than he
ever expected and has come nearer taking bold of the
great speculations ol our day than almost any portion
of Scripture. Why wo were put Into the world,
what the world ia and what are th*
divine methods and economy, how God is working
out in men tbo great final result, and what lathe whol*
moral system in which wo aro living?in which tb*
mind ol man ia a part, and God and the angola aro n
part, and great tendencies and influences aro a part
l'aul says, "Tho creature was made subject to vanity,
not willingly, but by reason ol il!tn who hath sub
jected tbo same with hope." Men people the earth
by reason or God?"Because tho creaturo Itself als*
shall be delivered from tbo bondage of corruption
unto glory like unto the children of God." God put
nice into tho world, seemingly in bondage to matter,
oppressed and abused; yet under ail this seeming there
was contiug a ransom and release, there was to
be n higher development than appeared in our
mortal life, so lie said. God had a
glorious future for mankind beyond what we think ot.
"All creation groaMtb." and il we should listen to II
in this stage we should have little hope, but all tho
sadness and sorrow in tins lilo Is but the travail pain,
and creation is groaning for the new mankind that la
to bo born inio existence. "Hut they who have tha
liral fruits of tho spirit, wo ourselves groan withia
ourselves waning '?what lor??"for the redemption
of our bodies," We are In the soothing turmoil, and
we have a presage of something better. "And lbs
time shall come when the body shall coma
out of subjection lo physical law.'' We nurselvea
groan within ourselves?that is, we aigh and
think deeply, waiting lor the redemption ol our
bodies, "f?r wo arc SHVed by hope, likewise the spirit
also liolpelh our infirmities. Wo know not what we
shall know, but the spirit Itself maketh Intercession
for in in groanings llint cannot lie uttered." A man
don't know what he ts contiug to and don't know wbal
to expect, lie has a vague longing lo be free from sla
and restriction, hot he would not know what to praj
lor exactly II ho should set about It. We know not
what to pray for; we aro being built up, but we don't
know Into what shape. Tho future Is tilled with power
ana glory; we sou it coming in tbo heavens, but pre
cisely how to make it out, where to And the exag
gerations and deiiciencies. we cannot And out, and wa
don't know what to pray for; but the spirit does, and
therefore it sighs through us, and these unworded
prayers, these longings tlint cast discontent on out
best things, they are all of God, for the spirit knowi
what wo want, and while the spirit makes intercession
through us, God knows what is best and right.
Now, out of this there aro points of instruction I
wish to make. One is, wo are living in a time when
wo are likely to err through
Men in olden ttmos reasoned by their senses. Wf
are constantly building theories and drawing philoso
phy. and Using the material of an earthly experience
to do it. And man la llkelv to think be has got tb?
wbolo, bnt there are a groat many things wo don*
know even exist. We dou't know into what sphen
the soul comes after death, and if we Imagine we knou
what is to come we cheat oursolvos by limitation. W?
nre coming to a world a great deal better than wa
dream ot. It is Tory protly us a picture to think ol
lieavon as paved with gold and baring gates ot pearl,
but I want something better than a
soul's iiabt not* sr.
and wonld get tired looking at tho gates of pearl Is
three days. Wo must have a something hotter thai
We make oar own heaven. We are rebuilding all
the time. When we get to heaven we want something
more than streets ol gold?when we get to heaven and
are looking for our child who haa gone be I ore. It is
not enough to think ol a city. All that tho Goepei has
given tends to make us desire more In a vision of the
heavenly life. If a inun asks me what the other life is
to be id detail I don't know. I can see th* buds, but I
dou't know what tho blosaoms will bo. Wo get a flash
here and n flash there. But we have the consolation
that if we lose absolute statements of fact we live by
liopsL It gives ino this comfort. There hi a largwncsfl

In connection with tho idea of introducing tho tele
graph into the African contlnout lrora( Egypt overland
to the Cape of Good Hope, Messrs. Kerry Nicbollu
F.dwiu Arnold and Colonol J. A. Grant lorwardod oer
tiiin suggestion4 to tha Brussels Geographical Confer
ence to bo brought lo the notice ol that body by ibf
last named gentleman, which has been collected In a
small pamphlet. Mr. Korrv Nicholls observes:?
"Commcnnug at Alexandria tbo Egyptian telegraph
line extends in a southerly dlrocltoa lor a distance of
1,109 milos to Khartoum, and surveys have already
been made for its continuance to Gondokoro. Consid
ering, therefore, Khartoum as tho baso of operations
lor tho construction ol the line southward, the distance
from that placo to tho E<iuutor, or head of Victoria
Kiyanza, would bu about 1,090 miles, and southward
across tlio lake to Delugou Buy 1,800 miles, giving e
total distance (calculating a direct course) of 2,800
miles to complete the connectlou with the South Airt
ctu linos; or, In other words, only 690 miles lurtner
than the disiauce covered by the Austrialisn overland
To the various ovorl.tnd lines nowiin active opera
tion Mr. .Nicholls adds one?that traversing the con
tinents ol Europe and Asia, beginning at ?t. Fetors
burg and endiug upon the eastern coast ol Siberia, ol
about 6,000 geographical miles; that of tha United
States, irom San Francisco to Now York, it length ol
3,300 miles; tho transandcan in South America,
across tho continent, a dtsuueo oi 1,100 miles, and tht
Australian line Irom Adelaide lo Fort Darwin, 2,000.
Mr. Arnold says:?"Of th-- great link thus proposod
the ends arc already made or making. Tho Egyptian
wire brings us daily inlelligeuce Irom Khartoum,
winch is 1,280 miles irom Alexandria; and this is being
extended lo Gondokoro, 700 miios lurtner on. Hence
the route almost all tlio way to M'tesa's capital IB
Within practical control, the distance being about 230
miles. King M'tesa's city makes a sale and central
sliiliou, suit tlienco the wire should bo taken uuder
the Victoria Lake, winch gives us g00 miles moro of
easy waterwork lo Muauzs. Hence it should go ovor
lalid by Spuke's old route to tvazP, which Is aoout 150
miles oil, umi ihence should bifurcate, on fairly secure
roads, to Ujiji and llagamoyo (Zanzibar). Having thus
incited up two commercial emporiums it would pass
down 1 uiiguuy ika, nod go by BernIm and l/oluss over
turn! lo Lake .Nyassn, where it is lo bo submarine again
till it reaches the iww town ol Llringstnula. Hence it
would safely proceed down tho Shirf- and Zambesi
rivers to tlio sea, where a short ocean line
would connect it w.lh Dclagoa Bay, or, better
still. Port Natal; or it might yet more
Cheaply pass overland irom Lake Nynssa to the Trans
vast Iroulier, Tlio distance to be covered between the
Egyptian uod colonial ends is about 2,700 miles, hut
out of ibis at lea.-i 1,600 may |>criiaiM bo laid In the
beds ol rivers and lakes. There is, however, uo neces
sity lor expensive insulated cables; a stinplo railway
wire stretched openly Irom troe lo tree, or upon poles,
may be carried Irom Khartoum lo tho Limpopo, and
once established will bu maintained by small aubsidlei
to the cbiel*. Oommeroe and profit w ill soon protect
wnal they depend on; stations will arise likt beads os
a siring, uud the aforesaid subsidies?with the fesr o|
?fetish' and travelling inspectors?will keep the line
upon as surely as ull others liuvo bucn maintained
across barbarous countries. There is nothing insur
mountable in the enterprise, nor would the capital
required be large in comparison with the prodigious
re.'ilia lo he achieved and the proilt to he derived
The line lo M'tesa's capital Irom Goudokoro should be
iiuug by a European siulf. The King of Uganda wonld
equip a'second party, llxlng the wire down tha lake
and to Kuzo. A Zanzibar division would lay the line
(roin Bngamoyo, through Kazc to I'JIji. A lourllt do
tachmeflt, well equipped, would take a section front
I'j'ji down Tanganyika to Lake Nvassa (overland) and
to Llvtngslonhi. A unit expeditiou would enrry it to
tne colony either by sea or land."
Colonel Grant is ol opinion that tlio conttnontof
Alr.ca, with Its Mlo Valley, its inland seas and its
healthy elevated interior, oilers as many facilities to
the construction ol a line as Australia or America; in
deed, greater Iscllltles. Jlut the personal obstacles nre
certainly considerable, tne greatest being the varied
but not numerous population, ll there was but on*
government all t e distance there wuuld he but on*
man to deal with, but in several instance* there are
duels every leu mdes; so that the maximum number
ot chlela to he subsidized would come to 200. but with
cure the subsidies lo thorn would not amount to mach
at tlio end ol the year. The telegraph constructors
