COMMITTEE. November Weather- The present month promises to be much colder than November of last year, which was above the average in temperature. It in turn was cold er than the same month of' 96 which averaged forty-eight degrees and was the warmest November within ten years. The present month will probably not equal the record of November '94, which averaged forty degrees, the coldest of ten years. The highest temperature for No vember during the past decade was seventy-five, observed November 9, 1895, and the most frigid weather was felt November 30, 1891, when the thermometer dropped to four teen degrees. Last year broke the ten years' precipitation record when in one day 1.9 inches of water fell. The month has an average of 2.97 inches. The prevailing winds during the past ten years for November have been from the west and the highest wind was from the southeast, fifty four miles per hour. November 23, 1891.

C. ; The parents of more than three hun dred towns and cities of the United States, moved by more than three hun- j dred tragedies of juvenile crime, have recently ordained—acting cooperative ly through their town and city councils —that their children shall come home at night at the signal of a so called curfew bell, which usually rings at eight o'clock in winter, atinine in summer Those who argue against the re- I vival of the "curfew"' as a return to medievalism show ignorance of history or lack of poetry. The ancient cui few applied to old and young alike, i The modern curfew has only the poetic resemblance of being an evening bell. I As well object to modern uses of the words "chivalry - ' and crusade," be- I cause the works in medieval times meant war. Those who argue that parents snould regulate this matter, forget that government is but the co- j operative act of parents, who need to ! act together in cities and villages. No where can curfew be established except at the request of parents expressed in ballots and petitions. The law no more interferes with parental rights and personal liberty than the kindred laws on compulsory education and child labor now fully established in the most enlightened commonwealths. 1 The school and the curfew bell are ! equally justified as necessary safeguards of public morals and prospective cit- I izenship. Laws forbidding the sale of liquors and tobacco and corrupt liter ature to minors have long since illus- j trated the duty of the state to protect ! immature youth. Gladstone's great saying, that it is the chief purpose of law to make it as hard as possible to do wrong and as easy as possible to do right, applies permanently to laws for the protection of minors. No in telligent view of personal liberty justi fies turning infants loose to play with poisons and razors. The most in spiring watchword of reform is, "Give the boys a chance." They have no chance if left upon the street at night. All the doleful prophecies of what the laws could or could not do have been answered by ten years of histo ry. The testimony of the cities which have rejected these shallow objec tions and tried the curfew is uni formly favorable. The law has not destroyed civil liberty, nor promot ed communism; it has not proved to be incapable, not even difficult of enforcement, but has been well ob served. It has decreased juvenile crime and vice. It has checked the alarming growth of hoodlumism. A chief of police who opposed the or dinance at first repented as he heard the steady patter of little feet, home ward bound, passing his office door, . at each ringing of the bell. W.C.T. U. W. 0.

Captain Hiul No Right to Tnko Command of Maria Teresa. Washington, D. C., Nov. 15.—Nothing but the Influence of his personal friend, Commodore Crowninshleld, chief of the bureau of navigation, can prevent Cap tain Ira Harris, who commanded the Vulcan when the Maria Teresa was abandoned, from, being court martial ed. It hns leaked out at the department that Captain Harris deliberately vio lated an important naval regulation when he assumed command of the Spa nish cruiser, and while holding this as sumed command, abandoned her to her fate. Captain Harris was placed in com mand of the Vulcan. The Maria Teresa wa, in command of Captain Chitten den of the Merritt Wrecking Company, and the secretary of the navy aione had it in his power to change this con dition of things and place Harris in command of the former Spanish ves sel. Harris, therefore, directly violated a naval regulation. Such an action would have been Im possible for an officer of the regulat service, but Harris, who entered the volunteer service at the outbreak of the war, is is believed, was rusty In his knowledge of naval regulations. When his dispatch announcing that he had abandoned the Maria Teresa was received, all the officers of the depart ment took it for gsanted that by the word abandoned he meant that the Vessel had foundered at sea. They never for a moment believed it possible that he deserted the Spanish vessel while she had a chance to float, which turned out to be the case. All these facts are now being con sidered by the secretary of the navy and the result will probably be the court martial of Captain Harris. Major Garcla'a Views. New Tork, Nov. 15.—Major Justo Garcia, son of General Calixto Garcia, who Is now in New York visiting his mother and invalid sister, was at the junta at 56 New street yesterday. Major Garcia has suffered from trop ical fevers, and came here to recuper ate his health. Major Garcia has been staying with his mother at 165 Lenox avenue. He said yesterday that he expected his father here before long and this ex pectation was confirmed by a dispatch from Havana which announced that General Garcia had arrived there en route to Washington. This dispatch Major Garcia lead In the morning pa pers. He said: "The sanitary condition of Santiago was never better. General Wood can not be too highly praised for what he has done to preserve the health of the inhabitants of that city. The climate of Cuba is naturally hard upon any person visiting it from a northern clime and the death rate there still contin ues high, but conditions are immeasur ably improved. I "Politically every Cuban who has even a little head of his own trusts In the faith of the United States. No | thinking Cuban believes this noble ! conntry Intends permanent occupation | of Cuba. To provide Cuba with a sta ble government is the aim of the Uni ted States and there is nothing Cuba needs more now." A Costly Heat. New York, Nov. 15.—A seat on tha stock exchange was sold yesterday for >2B,ooo—the highest price in fifteen years. The advance In price has been due to the increase in Wall street bus iness and the generally prosperous condition of affalrs in the financial dis trict. The record price for seats is $34,500. made in 1881, and as there is a deolded demand for the seats and there have been few deaths, it was predicted in Wall street yesterday that this price may again be reached. The seats that have been sold In late years have been largely bought by young men, many of them rich men's sonß starting in business. Ohio's Gold Field. Columbus, 0., Nov. 15.—A special from Canal Dover, says: "Another dis covery of gold Is announced In the Mal vern district near here. The latest find is at Augusta, a few miles north of Malvern, where M. O. Leyda has discovered on his farm an ore which he claims to be richer than the Mal vern product. Specimens will be as sayed nt once. The discovery has in creased the gold fever and has also caused the price of land to take a fab ulous Jump, so that it can be neither bought nor leased. In case the assay shows sufficient gold Mr. Leyda will at once purchase fnachinery to work the mine." Mora Powerful Thau McKinley, Columbia, S. C., Nov. 16.—Whites around reenwood think they are more powerful than President McKinley. In stead of taking a common sense view of the situation, they think President McKinley, in deciding to abollshh the postofflce at McCormlck, has yielded to them and confessed that the Tol berts were to blame, and the whites are In the right. This may lead to theg ravest conse quences. The press of South Carolina is arous ed, and the Columbia State and Charleston News and Courier denounce the reckless murderers. Both advocate disfranchising those who resort to mob rule. Match Company Has German Concession. Akron, Ohio, Nov. 16.—Mr. O. C. Bar ber, president of the Diamond Match Company, who recently returned from Europe, makes the statement that ar rangements have been concluded with the erman imperial government by which a mammoth new match factory will be erected by tne Diamond com pany in the Fatherland. The plant will be located at Dres den. This will be the fourth factory which the Diamond company has es tablished in Europe In the past few years. To Favor Submarine lioak Washington, D. C., Nov. 18.—The members of the naval inspection board have returned to Washington from New York, where they made a test last Saturday of the Holland subma rine boat. The report of the board is now in preparation and it is under stood that it will he favorable. If dishonorably discharged from the army, the soldier forefeits his citizen ship—becomes a man without a country—can never re-enter the army, has no chance to wipe out his disgrace and has an ineffaceable blot placed on his name. Nothing short of an act of Congress can remove the disabilities that are carried with a dishonorable discharge from the army of the United States. The penalty is indeed a ter rible one.
