Chicago Ideas Which Might Be Used

II . Theaters on Sundays.
LAKGE AUDIJCES AM) BIG EECEIPTS
FROM A STAFF CORKESrOXDEXT.
Chicago, 'May 15. 1'iuancially the burn
ing of Christ Church. Pittsburg, mar turn
out to be a piece of great good luck to the
congregation Mhick ha thus been compelled
to resort to the theater in which to hold its
services. It may turn out to be the perma
nent introduction in Pittsburg of the dis
tinctively Chicago idea of mixing religion
with business .md so mating the devil him
self work to support the church.
The scheme here was first tiied by the
Methodists to whom a lot about 100 feet
square at the southeast corner of Clark and
"Washington streets was gi en many years
ago. This location is in the very heart of
the business center w here land has within
the past few )ears quadrupled and quin
tupled in value because of the perfection of
the passenger delator and the erection of
IS and SO story office buildings.
Business Hooso and Church.
Louy before the fire of 1871 the Method
ists erected a building on that corner four
stories high, the lower stories and basement
being fitted up for stores, offices and other
business purposes, and the third and fourth
floors furnishing space for a great audience
room, with lecture rooms and pastor's study
attached, and also a number of lodge
rooms. The ncheme proved to be a great
Miccess. Those parts of the building which
ere devoted to such worldly purposes as
sale of scalpen tickets and soda water
yielded a re enue of about S13.000 a year
more than sufficient to pay all expenses, and
lea've the church members free to spend for
mmmer excursions what they might other
w ise have to pay for the support of the
JJOSpCL
But the donor of the land, foreseeing that
such a result might happen, provided in his
donation that a large part of the income
should be devoted to churcu extension and,
J" a result, the members of the First 3d". E.
Church had to "hustle" to raise their pas
tor's salary pretty much ai other Christians
do. The present building, which was re
built after the fire of 1871, is antiquated and
awav out of date, but it yields from rent
about f 25, 000 a year.
A ltig Sclienio on Foot.
A scheme is on foot to tear it down nnd
replace it with a 15-story office building
reserving the choicest part of the space for
church purposes nnd doubtless this will at
some time be done. If this change is made
wisely the income from that piece of real
estate can easily be raided to J50.000 a year.
Better results liinc been accomplished with
similar lots e en less favorably located.
The best churches in Chicago are held in
the theaters. Dr. H. "T. Thomas, who was
ruled out ol the .Methodist Church set eral
J ears ago for not believing several things
which he should have belie ed, holds forth
every Sunday forenoon at McVickcr's Thea
ter to an audience of from 4,000 to 5,000.
The seats rent for from 7 50 to 550 each
per year, and a collection is taken up to
enable the horde of strangers who drift in,
every Sunday to make a contribution. '
Thomas' sermons are lectures rather than
sermons, thev are intellectual rather than
spiritual, and, as might be expected, there
is not a great deal of sociability among the
members, although .strenuous "fellorts are
made to work it up bv means of gatherings
of the members held alternately by the
members in the south, north and West di
lisions of the city. At that church there is
nothing that resembles the Methodist re
vival service.
At Central Musie Hall, around the corner
from McVickers and the First Methodist
Church, Prof. Swing, the poetical and
brainy heretic, who was cast out of tho
Presbyterian Church for not believing
Something or other a fevc years ago,, holds
forth a somewhat similar assemblv as that
of Dr. Thomas
liter Sermon a l'oem.
Every scrnion here is a poem, expressed
in matchless English, but marred by an
execrable mumbling delhery which it takes
time to become used to. Th'c most intellec
tual people of the city andsuburbs flock to
Swing's standard, and it takes a cry
stormy Sunday morning to leave many of
his cats empty.
The managers here consider it vulgar to
take up a collection. The hat is never
passed, and the only nay the visiting
stranger can pay for the hospitality extRided
to him is by renting a scat at a cost of from
620 to ?100 a year. Both Prof. Swing and
Dr. Thomas are paid verj liberal salaries.
Voryrecentlyanother Methodist minister,
the Rev. Flau'us J. Brobst, a former Peun
svhauian by the way, has cut loose from
the church and organized "The Union
Temple," which meets every Sunday after
noon at Hooley's Theater, and fiev. Frank
Guusaulus, pastor of Plymouth Congrega
tional Church, which is located three miles
from the business center, on the Southside,
lias for several months been holding even
ing services at Central Music Hall which
have been wonderfully popular; the attend
ance has been so large that admittance could
not be obtained after 7 o'clock. There has
been talk of utilizing the Auditorium
for a Sunday church service, but Dr. Lori
mer, the Baptist minister, whose name has
been spoken of in that connection, 16. about
to leave the city, having recently accepted
a call to Boston.
What the Experiments Show,
The Chicago experiments, most of which
have been spoken of aboe, have demon
strated that, at least as far as attendance is
concerned, a church can be carried on in a
theater as successfully as anywhere else.
Ther have also shown "that a churih located
in the business center of a large city can
combine business with religion, with
ery great financial profit to it
self and increased attendance and
without any loss of vitality, power or
influence at least that seems to oe the ex
perience of the Methodist church referred
to.
The moral of all this is that if the Christ
Church people should build a 15-story
modern fire-proof office building at the junc
tion of Penn avenue and Eighth street, a
single year's income would wipe out the fire
Irtse "inn 1aro thorn flnonoiallT- nt lancf
ahead of any other church in Pittsburg, and
besides they would have the prou3 distinc
tion of being the pioneers in the introduc
tion in Pittsburg of a great Chicago idea.
6T0LE WHEAT BY THE CABX0AD.
Farther Sensational Developments in Those
Big Thefts at Duluth.
St. Paui., May 15. Sensation follows
sensation before the joint legislative com
mittee appointed to investigate the alleged
steal of 00,000 bushels of wheat from the
elevators at Duluth. Charles D. Patterson,
j ardmaster for the Northern Pacific at Du
inth, testified that the General Agent, A,
V. Hartman, used to tell him to shift in
cars of a certain capacity to be loaded with
wheat at the elevator. Pattisoc was struck
with the fact that these cars were loaded at
night and watched them. He kept a memo
randum of these cars and gave dates. He
looked into them when they were loaded
and found that they contained wheat
about COO bushels to a car he should judge.
These cars were all billed f as screenings.
"When the deputy inspector came to my
office and asked for my explanation," said
Pattison, "I told him I did not know, and
as soon as he went out, I telephoned Hart
man and said: 'You want to let up on that
dirty work of loading cars at night and bill
ing them as screenings." In his cross
examination Pattison said he and Lynch
waited upon Superintendent Bipley, ot the
Duluth elevator, threatening to expose the
collusion between the elevator and the
Jforthern Pacific rata.
. NEED OP SIGN-POSTS.
A Law That Is Not Enforced Hard to Tell
Whore to Go and How Far .When
Driving Over Allegheny County Koad
A Crying Evil.
It must be evident to every traveler in
this and other counties in Western, Penn
sylvania that either township road super
visors have not posted themselves in their
duty under the law, or feel superior to law,
or depend upon the ignorance or careless
ness of the public for immunity not only as
to the repair of dangerous places, but in
their neglect to maintain at the intersec
tion of all public roads in their districts
pointers, index or finger boards, pointing
out to travelers the town, village or other
place to which such roads lead and the
distance thereto. "For neglecting this duty
a supervisor is liable to a fine of $10.
This is a matter of more importance than
many people appreciate. In a country
where time is almost generally regarded as
money there is a vast expenditure of filthy
lucre, to say nothing of anxiety and temper.
The woods in the first place are almost im-i
passable, causing tnuelers much loss of
time and wear of horse flesh, and when they
arc subjected to the annoyance, of going
astray or losing five or ten minutes at short
internals to assure themselves that they are
on the right road the infliction becomes ex
asperating, if vou depend on information
gathered from the dwellers along the high
ways you jfind yourself, as to distance, in
much the same predicament as the traveler
in a certain part of Ireland. Many will
give jou the distance, reckoning from
their own resideuce,though they may at the
place of meeting be miles nearer or farther
irom the place sought than their residences.
Even on what few sign-hoards you find the
matter of distance appears to be frequently
guess work.
In the southwest portion of this county is
a hamlet, which, like "many a gem of purest
ray serene," is not named o any railway or
rher guide, or tourist's directory, and it is
locally known as Turtletown. Starting from.
Enlow station, on tho Montour Eailway,one
day lately, a traveler undertook to trudge
to Stoops' Ferry, via Turtletown. Near the
latter place he asked how far it was to the
ferry, and was told about eight miles. He
was obliged to stop three times in the next
three miles to assure himself from residents
that he was on the right road, as he found
no guide boards at diverging roads. Finally
he found a finger post which pointed the
way and gave the distance. After going at
a swinging gait for 45 minutes he came to a
fork. On this subiect the cruide-board had
been silent and one road looked as likely to
be the right one as the other. The weary
wanderer sat down and awaited the arrival
of a horseman, descried some half a mile
distant, and by him was putfon the right
road, but was by him informed that the dis
tance to the place sought was still two
miles further than that indicated by the
guide board, some two and a half miles fur
ther back, which would make the sijent
pilot a liar to the extent of nearly five
miles. As the horseman did not appear
overly intelligent he was pressed for fur
ther information, when it was learned
that he had ghen the distance from the vil
lage of Clinton, which he happened to
know, and he hadn't done it with any intent
to deceive. When the traveler reached
Sharon his tribulation was ended.
It is sometimes quite difficult to find
places in the suburbs of cities for want of
information that should be printed on street
corners, but here you can always, except at
night, find someone convenient and make
inquiry, but in the country a traveler's ap
preciation of the scenery is often sadly
marred by his uncertainty regarding his
way, and, as few people stndy navigation or
carry compasses, nerves and temper are
tried and time wasted.
If supervisors cannot find trees on which
to affix their gnideboards they are author
ized to plant posts. Were the townships
laid off as in Northern Ohio, Western Ke
serve, in squarei, travelers could have some
other guides to go by, but in our hilly
country one may wander as in a labyrinth,
unless he be something pf a navigator.
Some country silurians cannot seethe neces
sity of this kind of public education, but
they are a slow-going set that
travel but little. Said one of them:
"What's the use of finger-boards? T.
can go to any place within ten miles of here
without once asking my way." But while
this same "hayseed" is well posted in the
locality of the" Diamond Market, he knows
little else of Pittsburg, and would be indig
nant if offered no better facilities for find
intr places in the citv than are afforded in
the country.

paper liar, will make a confession of his
transgression orer hi own signature in

A HANGING IN GE0EGIA.
Bufus Moore Strang Up in the Presence of
G,000 People.
Newton, Ga., May 15. Eufus Moore
was publicly hanged shortly after noon to

Carlsbad Spradel Salts.
TBOSI DB. A. W. TOLAND, TUNIS, TEX,
Editor Courier-Kecord, Dallis, Texas.
Having noticed an advertisement in sev
eral medical journals recently of Carlsbad
Sprudel Salt, I thought to give my experi
ence with this valuable therapeutic agent
Hoping it will benefit some other poor,
overworked, hillside, saddle-riding, M. D.,
afflicted as I was.
Last summer, in June, while treating a
camp of State convicts, in which prison
epidemic dysentery was raging, I con
tracted the disease, which eventually as
sumed the chronic form, complicated with
enlargement of spleen and hepatic troubles.
Being always on the go, every remedy tried
failed to relieve me, until I saw the adver
tisement of Eisner & Mendclson Co., of 6
Barclay street, New York. I sent SI for a
trial bottle (they send out no free trial
bottles), which came promptly to hand
by express. I began taking ono teaspoon
lul dissolved in hot water sufficient, adding
alter it was dissolved q. s. cold water to
make three-fourths of an ordinary goblet
full, drinking at one dose from one to two
hours before each meal. When it was too
active, I would take less. The next day I
began to improve, eating as much and what
ever I liked. This was about the last of
September or the first of October, 1890. I
have been improving ever since; weigh
more, digest my food better, and rest bet
ter at night than I have in the last 20 years.
I sent a five-dollar note to Eisner & Men
delson Co.. 6 Barclay street. New York.
and they sent four (I) large bottles of the
salt, per express, in return.

A BISGBACEFUI SCENE.
The IJo Exchanged and Blows Struck
at
the Florida Senatorial Caucus.
Tallahassee, Fla., May 15. There
was a disgraceful scene in the Senatorial
caucus last night. On the seventy-seventh
ballot the vote was: Call, 52; Mays, 44;
Bloxham, 2. When the name of Saulsbury,
of Citrus county, was called, he sent to the
clerk's desk and had read a copy of a peti
tion from Hernando county, addressed to A
Mann, Bepresentative from that county,
asking him to vote for Call.
(Senator Kirk, of Hernando, replied to
Saulsbury, and denounced a nunjber of
Call's friends, directing his epithets chiefly
at Franl? Clarke, of Polk county. Clarke
replied to him, and Kirk, again taking the
floor, called Clarke a liar. Clarke jumped
from his seat, rushed at Kirk and dealt him
a powerful b'ow, which sent Kirk sprawl
ing over the press table. He held Kirk
down with Ids left hand, and- was dealing
some hard blows with his right when the
twovwere separated by a reporter. Finally
quiot was restored) the roll' call was con
cluded and the caueas adjourned.

A match between Stelnttz and Tschlgorin
at Ha ona, next December and January, has
been proposed by the Havana Chess Club.
The indications are that It will bo played.
The Rossendale Free iVew says : "Captain
Maokonzie gained the admiration and re
spect of hundreds of chess players in both
hemispheres, his courteous manner being
very attractive. His play was, in ouropinion,
of a. jios iptetesting nature, and most of his
games contain beauties of play most
Sroblematical in conception and execution,
lackburne and Bird piny a somewhat simi
lar style interesting and brilliant from tho
opening to the ending? and a game of this
description is worth half a dozen of those
cut and dried parties no see so often in
tournaments, which have no go in them
worth mentioning. As a cotempomry states,
'His play was always greatly admiied, for it
combined in a remarkable degree the quali
ties of imagination and accuracy, never be

that were both surprising and beautiful.'"

GAME NO. &5-GLASGOW.
The following two games were played at
an entertainment given by tbo Y. SL C. A. at
Washington, Pa., on April 9, between Mr.
Robert Gibson, of Washington, and the
Checker Editor of The Disfatcs, in the
midst of a large and select audience, on a
large checkered board, with 24 of the love
liest little girls that Washington could pro
duce, as checker men, 12 dressed in the
purest white, pretty wreaths encirpling
their lovelv hair, and 12 dressed in the
brightest red, making a very pretty sight on
the large squares. The names in full were
given In The Dispatch of April 10 of all the
little girls, and full particulars of the great
event. Below are the games that were
played in this novel way. There are not many
cases on record or our favorite game being
played in such an interesting manner, but
the way the audience appreciated the con

SCOTTISH DRAUGHTS CHAMPIONSHIP.
BBYPEX AMD FEKRIE TOB 100.
COimESPONDENCE OF THE PISFATCU.
A match at draughts commenced in the
New Central Halls (old Mitchell Library),
Ingram street, on Saturday, between Will
iam Bryden, of Glasgow, and James Ferrie,
pf Coatbridge, fti? the championship of Scot
land and a stake of j100. Both players have
long occupied front-rank places as draught
players, and have been very suceessful In
match and tournament play. Unless in
friendly club matches, this fs the first formal
encounter between tho pair.. The match is
to be decided by the best of 30 games, wins
and draws to count, nnd is played on the
"restricted" principle, which in this case
means that a different opening will be
formed every second game. Punctually at
noon the contestants faced each other. Bry
denwonthe toss for choice of pieces, and
elected to play with the white. (Black, it
may be-mentioned, always moves first.) The
opening draw n by lot for the first game was
the "10-15," technically known to draught
players as the "Kelso." It is thought to be
wpak for tho first plnyei, but both seemed
well versed In the lines tlioy respectively
adopted as first and second player, and in
rather less than an hour the game was aban
doned as a draw. The next, v, hlch occupied
neatly an hour and a half, was also drawn.
"Bristol" was the next opening ballotod.
This is a well-known and popular opening,
on which there has perhaps been more "book
play" published than on any other. This fact
nevertheless, Bryden, who was second play
er, tumDieu into a "dook- loss in less man 211
minutes; and, equally to the chagrin and
astonishment of his supporters, and possibly
somewhat unnerved by being the first to lose
a game in the match, ho lost the same open
ing when he was first player in the succeed
ing game. This concluded play for the af tei
noon. On resuming in tbo evening, the "Double
Corner" was the opening drawn by lot. It is
reokoned rather w eak for the first player.
Despite this, Ferrie soon got a good game on,
spmuch so Indeed that his liiends were
quite Jubilant at tho apparent certainty of
ins scoring mg imru win in succession, due
Brjdon was now playing with something
like his reputed form, and, timing- every
move cprrectly, succeeded, amid applause,"
in drawing a difficult end game. He hud now
to take the black pieces in the same opening,
and in the ending had if anything the easiest
side. There vas never, however, any
material advantage with either, and when
the pieces .were reduced it was mutually
agreed to abandon the game as a draw. This
concluded-plny for tho day, the score stand

SECOND DAT.
Thero was a good attendance at the New'
Central. Halls, Jngrani street yesterday,
when Ferrie and Bryden, started their second
day's play in the above match. The opening
drawn from th.e bag for the first game was
the 1216 or "Dundee" one pf the weakest
that can be taken by tho black side. Both
contestants, however, managed to draw, al
thoughi as was o be expected, each had an
pphiu game when plajng first side.' 'The
old routine ll-15,moveas that drawn for the
next game, and Ferrie formed the familiar
' Glasgow" opening. Somewhat to thet sur
prise of his supporters, it was whispered
about toward tno close that he was Into a
lost position, or at least onehe would require
to play "all he knew" to draw, nnd tho first
conclusion proved 'correct. The following
shows the ending: Black men on 5, 8, ii,
kings on IS. 19; white men onn, 20, 28, kings
on 7, 10. White (Bryden) to play:
10-14 .. 7-10 20-16 6-. 9 14-18 16-11

On resuming in the evening Ferrio formed
the 'Defiance" against Bryden's 11-15. Play
got on rapidly, so long as confined to "book,"

had to give up as drawn a game in which
many thought he had a win in hnnd. Never
theless, every credit must he given Ferrio
for drawing a game hi whlchfprmanymoves
he was a man down. Tbo "Edinburgh"
(913) was the next opening; alsq a very
w ealc gamo for the first player. But as each
has to play both sides or the balloted open
ings, each has in turn the strong and the
weak side. After an hour's play the pieces
were reduced to six a side, but the play vas
continued for another hour making the
longest game in point qf timeyet played in
the match before it was given upas a draw.
This conclnded play for the day, the score
standing: Ferrie, 2,; Bryden, 1; drawn, &with
19 games to play,
THIRD DAY.
On resnming play yesterday in the Kew
Central Halls, Ingram street, Bryden, as first
player, had to take the weak side pf the
"Edinburgh" opening. He all but scored a
win when second player the preceding even
ing, but the question discussed by Ins sup
porteis was, woul'd he be able to draw the
weak side against his astute and able oppo
nent? He failed to do this; for so well did
Ferrie work the advantages the peculiarities
of the opening afforded that Bryden hid to
lowor his colors without getting a crowned
man. The next opening- was the "Denny"
(10-U) the last pf the nrst section of the
match in which each In turn had tq open
with every possiblo move with black. The
"Denny" Is also a weak opening, and it was
therefore no surprise that each In tprn lost
when he maneuvered the black pieces.
On lesumlng In the evening the second
section of the match that in which ono of
the standard openings is drawn from a bag,
and each in turn plajs the first and second
side was entered upon. The "Cross" was
the opening balloted, and Ferrie was first
player. The game proceeded throughout on
safe "book" lines, nnd after an hour and a
hairs play it was resigned as a draw, neither
at any time having any material advantage.
Another "Cross" game, in which Bryden had
the black pieces, having resulted in a draw,
play finished for tho day with the score
standing Ferrie, 4; Bryden, 3 draws, 16; with
14 games to play. '
FOUB.TH DAY.
The first sitting just completed, two games
plav ed, both drawn, making total score up
to this mail: Ferrie, I wins; Bryden, 2 wins;

among the spectators continued until the
close. Bryden was the 'favorite when the
match commenced and he was expected to
be the winner.
BEED ACCEPTS BABKEB'S CHALLENGE.
Cbtoaoo, Jfay 1L
Drauoht Editoh Tubf I accept Mr. Bar
ker's challenge to play me a match of SO
games, restricted, for tho 'championship of
the world and a stake of $1,000 ($500 a side).
Tho games to be restricted the same as in
the last Freeman-Barker match. In tho
inatter of expense, I will allow him $73. and
that to come out of the purse of $1,000.' His
expenses will not amount to more than (45.
In my matches with him at Boston, the most
he allowed me was $40, and that came out of
the purse Of course the stakes are larger,
but does not necessarily increase his ex
penses. In our last match in Chicago he was
satisfied with $50. Thero is another change
I would suggest, nnd that is, have the time
limit altered to 12 or 15 moves per hour, and
anytime saved in the first hour to be given
credit on the next 12 moves. I offer this to
remove that habit that displeases those
patrons who help to support and give en
couragement to real checker playing.
Should Mr. BaTkor desire to go -on with the
match by posting a forfeit in yonr hands, I
will cover it and draw up the articles of
agreement, sign them, and send them to him
for his signature. Yours truly,
Jas, P. Beed.

The draughts editor of the Turf, A. J. Dun
lap, Instead of answering the arguments of
The Dispatch of May 2 on the Wyllle and
Keed contest, so fur forgets his dignity, that
age and experience should have taught him,
stoops to the ungcntlemanllness ol person
ally abusing the writer of the article, in
stead of strengthening himself before the
public with n few plain statements to J ustify
what The DiSPATcn complains of of hand
ing over unjustly Wyllie's forfeit money to
Keed and his backers. The Dispatch, in an
its departments, strains all its faculties, that
America and Americans may be in the front
rank in everything, but not at the sacrifice
of honesty and fair dealings. So in its
checker department. We would like the
world's championship, but until Dunlap,
Keed and Chicago can show that they arc en
titled honestly to the forfeit monev. and
have earned what they claim to poises,
then, and not till then, will The Dispatch
support them.
The follow ing is from F. Dunne, of War
rington, draughtB editor of tho Leeds Mer
cury, and speaks for itself: "We ae glad to
note that tho action of Keed and his backers
is not meeting with tho approbation of a
wide section of the American press. Several
of our exchanges counselled umoremod
erato course, and wil not hesitate, we aro
sure, to condemn the action npw it is com
pleted. Whatever may be the ultimate re

as likely to create a wido breach in the hith

American champions in the negotiations fpr
matches." "

A PBISTIAN NATION-
THE CONSTITUTION SO DEFINES THE
AMERICAN REPUBLIC.
Suggestions to Young Sfcn as to Ideals of
"Citizenship and Government Tradi
tions Which Should Be Studied for the
Lessons Th.ey Impart.
tWBmES ron the nisrATcn.
Xh? Constitution defines the American
Bepublic as a Christian nation; all the
more Christian because it admits' all men tq
equal rights, under its proyisions, and only
demands hat they shall not make any form
of religion a pretext for subverting its
fundamental character. Webster and Kent,
and others experienced in the administra
tion of our laws, have spoken of Christian
ity as pqrt of the law of the land, in terms
stronger than X should care to adopt; cau
tiously, indeed, and always restricting their
judgments to the Scriptures as a moral code,
and as the base of our social laws
It is enough for me to recognize the fact,
to which they and the decisions of our courts
have borne witness for more than a century,
that the civilization which our law and
constitutions were created to protect is
Christian civilization. It is not the oM
Boman or the old Greek civilization. It is
not the half-civilization of the Turk3 or of
the Chinese; it is that which our. forefathers
brought to these shores and transplanted
with themselves in this new soil; which, as
a matter of course, gave new shape to all
onr- institutions; which is nor and pver
must be the ineradicable spirit of all that is
American: it is a civilization which nothing
but Christianity could, create, and which
must perish should ever (which Gpd forbid)
an. element practically anti-Christian pre
vail over our historic institutions, and sup
plant them by the delusive speculations of a
revolutionizing socialism.
To Become Ardent Americans.
To these suggestions as tp standards of
pitizenship, let me venture to add some con
siderations which the civic philosophy, in
my opinion, must condescend to impress
upon the popular mind, as means to an end,
the great end of reinforcing the national
spirit, and of making American citizens
ardently, but not wannlyi Americans. That
is perhaps the best sentence in the Declara
tion of Independence apart from those
which reach its immediate purpose, which
teaches us "a decent respect for the opinions
of mankind.'' Far be it from me, therefore,
to deny that intercourse with older nations
is doing much to identify us with the great
family of the world, and to Introduce
among us much that tends to our social im
provement. Yet, I own that I am iealous of anything
that makes us a merely imitative people;
that deprives us of self-adjusting anil self
respecting faculties; that hinders the de
velopment of national ideas in .literature,
in art, in society and manners; that robs us
pf the right to appreciate what becomes our
simple republican estate, and to maintain
for ourselves what we would by no means
dictate to older nations, existing under
forms of government which differ from
ours, and towhich ours would be foreign
and fantastic, or, in short, impossible.
Hence I would commend a generous spirit
of emulation; a disposition to foster Ameri
can learning, art, literature, and the like,
not in hostile rivalry by any means, but as
our fair and noble contribution to the com
monwealth of humanity; as in short ful
filling our mission to mankind on our own
ground, and in a way appropriate to our
own traditions.
Ideals of Citizenship.
The aim and effort of the American Insti
tute of Civics has been described as that of
"maintaining high ideals of citizenship and
government, and of elevating the character
of the citizen by such ''stable and forceful
influences" as develop a character practi
cally equal to the claims of the Bepublic
upon the individual. Foremost among such
influences I place our "traditions,'1 for we
have traditions mostoble and inspiring;
but millions of our citizens are the sons of
the immigration which has followed the
peace of 1865, and millions besides are
themselves immigrants of recent importa
tion, many of whom cannot read their own
language, and will never learn ours; and
yet they are made our ypters, and virtually'
our masters, since their votes, often sold to
the highest bidder, enable the demagogue
0 turn the balance of parties, and so to
subjugate the intelligent and patriotic by a
venal minority.
What is onr country and our Constitution
to these classes? Even if they conld be
made acquainted with the letter of the con
stitutions, national and local, which clothe,
them with a franchise so perilous to their
spirit, yet nobody can comprehend these
constitutions who is ignorant of the tradi
tions out of which they grew; traditions of
a thousand years in the homes of their fore
fathers, and of three centuries on American
soil; traditions consecrated, in part, as the
common law, and in part known -as the free
and yet law-loving spirit of the peoplarthat
settled the colonies and created the States.
Where Traditions Are to Be Found.
Now, no nation can be great that has no
recognized traditions, dear to the whole
population and enabling them at a critical
moment to act wiin one win ana one neart.
Where then is the civic philosopher to find
the traditions by which he would educate
his countrymen to the proportions of a
great nation ? They exist; schools delight
in them; jurists and statesmen cite them in
their arguments and judgments; but where
shall the people find them ? If ojv shall the
young be imbued with their principles ? Is
it not our duty to encourage a noble Ameri
canism in art, in literature, in prose and in
song?
For the young, beginnings have been
made in the romance as well as in the his
toric writings of Cooper and of Irving
names never to be mentioned without honor;
and with these, let me join the name of
Kennedy, whose romances Illustrate the
history and manners of the South, of Vir
ginia and Carolina, and ot a past that im
parts a charm to Southern society still,
though it is a past that is never to return..
And let nobody fear. that familiarity with

studies tnejoutn, and when the eouth re
turns the compliment, each claiming the
other, and making practical the great
thought which is in the Constitution, that
the citizen of one State is a citizen of all.

Mrs.
Herrington After a Big Slice of
Chicago's Xake Front."
Chicaqo, 31y 15. Between $4,000,000
and $5,000,000 worth of land on the lake
shore between Fourteenth and Sixteenth
streets, is involved in litigation by a bill
filed in the Superior Conrt at noon to-day.
Emily A. Herrington, of Geneva, I1L, is
complainant and the Illinois Central Bail
road Company is the corporation with which
an accounting is sought. iMrs. Herrington
is the widow of Augustus 51, He7ington, a
capitalist and one time general solicitor of
the Northwestern Company. His father
originally entered the .quarter section of
which the land is a part, and Justice, Her
rington took the title from him.
In 1856 he deeded the land to the Illinois
Central, but through some oversight -Mrs.
Herrington neglected to join in the transfer.
She chums therefore that she never released
her dower and is suing for her widow's in
terest and rentals since. 1687. She 'says the
rental value is $500,000 per annum.

Wnx. Van Honten Badly Injures His Ankle
and Is Prononnced Incurable by3Iany
Doctors Entirely Cured at the Electrical
and Medical Institute.
Wm. Van Houten is an intelligent HoU
lander, living at Xo. 80 Wordcn street. A
year ago last fall he fell from a roof and
sprained and badly smashed his right ankle.
The injury was a very painful one at the
time, but it was not thought to be cry seri
ous. Time passed on and the sprain proved
very obstinate, defying the best medical
skill in the city. Doctor after doctor was
tried, but without avail. Kesort was had to
liniments and all the lotions known for
treatment of this clnis of ailments, but they
didnogood. Mr. Van Houten became very de
spondent nnd concluded that he must remain
a cripple for life. Being a poor man having
a large family he felt compelled to work, in
consequence of which ho passed night after
night of tho most excruciating agony. Doing
such work as unloading carloads of wood,
he was compelled to drag his injnred foot
after him, there not being strength in I1I3
ankle to support his weight. Last January
his friends began to advise him to go to tlia
Electrical and Medical Institute, whom they
had heard had mnde some wonderful cures.
Mr. Van Houten was skeptical and thought
