There arc many reasons why the
experiment might not prove successful in
ibis cjantry, though we confees a largo
snmber oi people are anxious to make
the trial. The policy of creating another
big political machine is a doubtful one,
riewirj? it from tho standpoint of civil
service reform; whiiu thero is no aesnrince
that the service would, in the handB
ol the lovoramunt, be any more efficient
thin it now ia in tbo bonds of private corportions.
As an economic proposition, thero is
little to bo &iid in its favor. The Cullom
bill, note before tho Senate, proposes an
expenditure of about $50,000,000 lor the
purpose of establishing a service for the
convenience ol tiio one minion ciuaoua

the National Board o( Trade, 0?pt. H. G.
Taylor, of the United States Navy, read an
interesting pane^ on the piogrew of the
work of the Nicaragua canal and the important
commercial result* to follow its
construction. Oapt. Taylor said that the
requirements of commerce make it certain
that there will bo transit lor ships
between the Atlantic and Pacific oceaus.
The only questions are when, where and

favor of the Poatofilce Department aasnm- n
lug charge of telegraphic commnnication. a
He read a letter from Kenrfa B. Murray, e
Seoretary of the London Ohamber of Com* c
merco replying to certain questions pre* f'
vionaly aubmitted by Mr. Thnrber.
Among the more important qufistions and
ana were are the following: 4
Question?Has the result cf the purchase
and co-operation of the telegraph ft
by the govornment of Great Britain baen ?
successful or otherwise?
Answer?Successful as far na service is I1
concerned, but not financially, to the post- "
oiUco. The government working of the 01
telegraph has bsou indeed so satisfactory J
that publio opinion is now in favor of y
their taking over and working the cables ff
to Europe, the monopoly of which is now ?
expiring. D
Question?Woe the quickness and certainty
of the service improved or diminish- ^
Answer?GenoraJ .belief is that the
quicknew, certainty and secrecy of tho ji
service have improved under the post o;
offico. r ai
^aenuon?tiaa um lucrcuuu iu mo iiuiuber
of employes in the Postofiics Depart- t]
mont been productive of political evila? .y
Answer?Nune worthy of being noted.
Slight complaints have occasionally arisen
in regard to promotion in diflerent do*
partments of the poatoffice, but consider- t
ing the magnitude of the service numbering
54,800 persons regularly employed and
about 47,000 persons irregularly employed,
it is exceptionally freo from "political "
evile." There have been ono or two agitationa
for increase of salaries, ono of ^
which was oncceeslul. p
Question?Have improvements and inventions
in telegraphic communication in .
consequence of the telegraphs being ownod
by the Government ceased or dim- b
inished as compared with those previous
to the purchased by the Government?
Answer?Not altogether ceased, as the J
Postoflice Department have in tbeir em- ?
ploy eminent electricians and engineers, J
who introdnce improvements annually, }'
or adopt outside inventions when thouRht
desirable. The inducement is probably "
not so great "to invent" as when the tele- "
graph were in private hands. f
Question?Has the recent reduction in 11
the price of telegraphs to G pence for
twelve words throughout Great Britain p
been of benefit to the public, and how
much has it decreased the revenue of the o
telegraphs and increased the number of r
telegrams? 8
Answer?It has undoubtedly been of
great benefit to the public, although the *
utility of the chnugo has been Bomewhat S
detracted from by the fact of the address *
beinz counted in the words sent. The P
?imKa? nf moannund Pxnlnniun of railwav. O

rate and number Home ten millions?deepatched
In 1880-7 wan 40,137,175. com- ?
pared with 30 087,869 in 1885-0 The rev- I!
enue in 1886-7 waa 1,364.879 pounds, e
against 1,277,000 pounda in 1885-0. The n
number of messages thus shows an in- a
crease of 33 per cunt, whilo the revenue *
only Increased by 0 par cent. Thia waa
the first complote year under the redu.ed
rato. 8
Question?Would the public be willing J
to have the telegraph go back into the ?
hands of private companies? c
Answer?The overwhelming, in fact al- c
most unanimous, feeling would be in P
opposition to the return of private man- o
agement. P
Mr. Eraatua Wiman, of New York, spoke o
in opposition to govornment control. 8
After further discussion, the following ?
resolution was adopted: }
Rttohtd, That tho usefulness of the 1|
Postoffice Department should be extended t
in the direction of telegraphic commuui- {
cation, and we utge upon Congress tho c
earliest favorable consideration of this *
question. a

Retolved, That recent events have shown
in a manner which cannot longer be disregarded,
the danger to the business interests
of the country from our Government
continuing in time of peace the excessive
taxation which was necessary in
time of war.
Retolred. The business men of all par*
I ties, whether protectionists or free traders,
should unite in demanding early action
by Oongres3 to reduce onr present enormous
revenues in a way which will lsast
embarrass existing industries.
Retolved, That while it is desirable to
reduce the internal taxes it is not desirable
to abolish the internal revonue system
as a whole.

City or Mxxica, Jan. 19.?It la stated,
a what appears to be reliable authority, a
iat the Weatern national .Ban* ol flew
ork haa appointed an agent here for the
orpoae of getting control of the charter
f the Mortgage Bank, of thia city. It hae
10 power to issue cartificatea of deposits,
at no notes.
At preaent the only rights to issue notee
re thoae held by the National Bank oi
lexico aud the London Bank of Mexico
ad South America. It waa for a long
mo supposed that the National Bank
ad a monopoly nn notes, but the London
lank purchased the charter of a moribund
latitution called the Employes' Bank,
rhich had a right to issue notes, of which
; had never taken advantage.
Tnese two banks are establishing
ranches throughout the country, and ev>
lently exprct to bo able to control the
anking business of the country, as tho
ight to issue certificates of deposit is as (
ood thirn: as anybody wants.
Tne Western National Bank people
rill stand on a good, solid footing if they
ot potftcsfllon of tho chatter of the Mortage
Bank. A committee of three was apointed
three days ago by the stockholders
f the Mortgage Bank to confer with the
gent of the Western National. Itisnneratood
that two members of tho commit?e
favored the acceptance of the proposionH
made them, but tho third, who is a
entlemanof large wealth and great influnee.
obiuctod to tho arranaement. The
attire of his objections is not known, bnt
3 he is very earnest in his opposition be
rill be a very formidable obstacle to the
access of the negotiations.
It is believed that this matter had been
rossly mismanaged, because tbo charter
f the Mortgage Bank was considered a
jw months ago almost valueless, and
oald have been purchased without diffiulty
and for a very email sum without
inblicity bwing given to the negotiations,
ut as the matter has leaked out, it is supo;ed
that the two banks here will antagnizs
the project in every possible way,
nd should the Western National Bank
toweet possession of the coveted charter
t will only bs by paying its fnll value. A
irge American bank here would revoluionize
the banking business of the connry
and give great impetus to American
lusineest On this account the mismangoment
of the negotiations and the probble
failure are doubly to be regretted.

road at Cooler's Like, twenty-foor mill
east o! Kanaai City.
Express train No. 4 left Kansas City o;
schedule time, 8:20 p. x. It was in charg
; of W. 0. Beckley, the regular condactoi
if hen the train stopped at Missouri Oitj
On the platiorm oi the little station was
band of men with shotguns.
The conductor wag informed that the:
' were nnder command of an official of tbi
county, who had received word that an st
tamnt wonld ba made to rob the St. Lonii
express at a lonely spot a little leas thai
two miles eut ol Missouri City. One o
the officen got in the cab ol the engini
with the engineer and fireman, anil the
others distributed themselves through the
Oooley's Lake, a fishing resort and on!
o( the lonllest points on the road in win
ter time, was the place where the attach
was to be made. None oi the passenger!
oi the train were notified ol the danger.
At 9:30, as the point of attack was neared,
a red light was seen gleaming ahead. Ae
the train slowed np the engineer saw
three masked men. armed with rifies,
standing on the track.
"Get off there," said the leader of the
three men to the engineer. Horsey
climbed down ont ol the cab. Just as he
reached the ground the officer in the cab
pointed his shotgun out of the window
and fired. Whether he hit the leader ol
the band of robbers or not be could nol
tell, bat both he and the engineer were of
the opinion that he had. As aoen ae the
shot was fired he and Money dropped
down oat of eight.
The shot from the cab was answered
with shots from the guns of the three robhere,
which rattled about the engine, but
did no harm, and the three men retired
in a demoralized state. Ag they movod
back, a part of the posaa came np from the
woods, where they bad been in concealment
for some time, and opened fire on
them. Theee men had been eent ont from
Missouri City in advance oi the train and
had concealed themselvee to be in readiness
when they were needed.
About twenty ahols were exchanged, the
mon on the train joining in the pursuit.
The poess continued in pursuit of the
band, and when the train reached Moberly
there waa a report that two of them
had been captured by the officers and that
in the straggle one of them had been
killed. Thsrobbersare known to be farmere
living in the neighborhood of Missouri
City. One of them is said to have been a

Exciting Scenes at the CoDTentlon of B??
llevers in Beading.
Reading, Pa., Jan. 10.?Believers in the
faith cure created strange scenes in the
handsome new Monnonite church, on
North Tenth street, yesterday.
The church was packed to suffocation.
The excitement was of a character that
might cams onlookers to imagine themselves
living in the days of miracle. There
Erobably was not greater faitb, even in
ireal, than was manifested by somo of
the people in attendance upon the faith
cnre convention.
A sermon by Kev. F. W. Berkbelser
opened tbe proceedings. Then Mr. Mueselman,
of Bethlehem, delivered a stirring
addrese, urging reliance upon the Lord
instead of upon doctors in time oi sickness.
In the midst of an appeal to the
people to have greater faith, coupled wilh
an assurance that prayer can heal ail ills,
a young man named Mnhlon Neischewender,
from Auburn, rushed to the altar,
which was now surrounded by a half
dczon clergymen. The young man exclaimed:
"1 am suffering from consumption.
I have given up my medicine, and
now 1 rely on tho Lord to cnro me. I
want your prayers, all of you." Sobbing
aloud he sank on his kneee and the clergymen
called for prayers.
Then throo women left their seats and
went forward. A woman named Breniiar
said: "1 have suffered twenty years in
my head. 1 believe in prayer. I have
faith and I believe Jesus will cure me,"
'She, too, fell upon her knees in prayer,
while tho people sang a hymn.
Mr. Musselman made another appeal to
the audience and a number of clergymen
offered fervent prayers. Men wept, women
swooned and the congregation waa excited.
The ministers gathered about the
sick, and, laying hands upon thsir heads,
implored the Ppirit of Uod to descend
and heal the Uiicted penitently kneeling
?t tk,. .n.. tut. <:
ob um mvai j/uiiug iuio uuio miuu^ yersonfti
appeals were made bv other ministers
to eick people in the audience to come
forward and be healed.
"Here's one who cannot get throngh
the crowd," exclaimed a voice in the rear
of the chnrch. The deacons at once responded
and carried a jonng woman. Battering
with spinal disease, to the excited,
weeping, praying throng about the altar.
Meanwhile the choir sang, the consumptive
young man was overcome nnder hti
grea? mental strain, and be fell prostrate
on the floor, A. half hour of prayer Ber.
vice was kept tip while the clergymen
orged tho applicants for cnre to continue
strong in their faith. Several women testified
to their renewed strength and expressed
belief that they would be cured.
For an hoar at least this exciting service
was continued. At its close the sufferers
departed with light hearts and were told
to come again. Tbe convention will be in
session all the week.

D Foreign News of General Interest.
Bom*, Jan. 19.?The Opinione saya it is
* not probable that the Fopo seriously inB
tenda to intervene in the settlement of the
j Irish questions in the interest of the prea0
ent British Government.
* If the Dnke of Norfolk really has en
J official mission there la nothing to jiatlfy
1 the hope that it will bo successful.
' Tho Pope, it says, cannot go beyond ad
; vising ttie Irian blsnops to loilow a policy
of prndenco and moderation, tne Irish
i question being an economic and national
- one, and not of a religious nature. The
j Opiniont extols Mr. Gladstone's policy as
the moat likely to pacify Ireland.
The statement that Mgr. Foroico is
1 about to return to Rome is incorrect. The
pupal envoy will probably proceed to Ltm>
don shortly, bat will again return to Ireland.
Mgr. Persico is somewhat seriously
indisposed, although not to such an extent
as to necessitate hia return to Italy.
The Dake ot Norfolk will remain liere ior
some time longer.
A prelate occupying a high position at
the Vatican, was interviewed to-day on
the subject ot negotiations between the
British Government and the Holy See
with regard to the Irish question. "The
English Government," he said, "want the
Vatican to pabllcly avow and to express
its disapprobation of the acta of the Nationalists,
and here I may add, once for
all, that however unwelcome it may be to
the English Catholic press to adqiit that
these negotiations have been going on,
each is indlsputedly the case. To say the
contrary is tu betray absolute ignorance of
what is transpiring or to be willfully
mendacious. To continue, however, tho
Vatican replied to this request of the English
Government that it would be very
willing to exhort the bishops, clergy and
Uatholic laity of Ireland to moderation,
but at the present moment it is quite impossible
that it can proceed to public reurobation
o! what has been done by the
Nationalists. The Holy See, therefore,
urged the English Government to have
both patience and confidence in the
"Ihe reason why the PoDe hi'sitates to
take the course bo much dealred by the
Salisbury cabinet is that even in England
public opinion is very mnch dividnd on
the subject. In short, tho Irish current is
too strong just at present for the Holy See
to feel sufficient confidence in his ability
to otem it. The advantages of tho British
Government have, thareforo, been mot by
the Vatican with a request that the Government
will continue to'have patience
and place its confidence in the benevolent
intentions of the Holy Father."
