Napoleon gave this order to his se

chamber as seldom at possible. Do
not awake me when you have
imy good news to communicate with
that there Is no hurry. But when you
bring bad news, rouse me instantly, for
then there is not a moment to be lost."

Had Napoleon occupied the place of

In the series on "Great Religions of
the World, Sir Lepel Griffin contri
butes to the February number of the
North American lteview an article on
•'.Sikhism and the Sikhs." Sikhism, as
system, is the re
sult of a revolt against Brabmanism,
similar to that of protestantism againEt
the church of ltome, and it is a note
worthy coincident that Luther and
Nunak, the leaders in these two move
ments, were born and died within afew
years of each other. Sir Lepel Grillln,
iu a singularly lucid manner, ets forth
the line of doctrine expounded by
Nanak und his eight immediate suc
cessors iu the office of Guru, the
introduced by Govind Singh, and the
practice of the Sikhs of to-day. who
show a tendency to revert to Hindu
ceremonial and modes of. thought. It
is iu high terms that Sir Lopel writes of
Nanak and bis teaching:
"Nanak was a true prophet, and ac
complished worthily an exalted mission.
His system, like all systems, had many
imperfections and chief of them were
those which equally belonged to Calvin
ism, in the substitution of one tyranny
fur another, and the overshadowing of
"11 human joy by a predestined lot
which no faith or virtue could modify.
But the good far outweighed the evil.
Nanak taught the wisdom and omni
potence of one Supreme God, and the
equality of all men, of whatever race
or creed, in His Bight purity of life,
charity, humility and temperance. He
enjoined kindness to animals, and for
bade both female infanticide and tbe
burning of widows. He condemned
idolatry and asceticism, and preached
the wholesome doctrine that tbe state
of the worker and householder was the
most'honorable condition, and that to
find God and serve him, it was not nec
essary to practice austerities or retire
from active life. Hia object, in which
he largely succeeded, was to purge
Hinduism of the dross which bad gath
ered about it to lift it from tbe slough

The treasury department trusts few,
a fact that has increased Uncle Sam's
revenue a great deal, as tbe majority of
the boarding officers know. Recently
the holder of a pass boarded a White
Star liner aud was approached by a
passenger to whom he was a perfect,
stranger. The latter said:
"I understand you are connected
with so and so. I have a small pack-,
age here that I would like to take
ashore. There is nothing dutiable in it,
but you understand how the govern
ment piles it on. I will meet you at
the head of the gangway when I get
my luggage released, and I will take
the package from you."
Not only did this pass holder not take
the package, but the first thing he did
upon landing was to point out the pas*
senger to a member of the surveyor's
staff, who very promptly demanded
and received the package. It contained
jewelry of all descriptions. That an
unauthorized person may not get on
board an Incoming craft in advance of
the customs officials the following is
attached to every pass that Is issued
for the revenue cutter:
"This permission is understood to be
subjcct to the assent of the master of
the steamship and of the health- officer
as guardian of the public health, and
boarding is strictly forbidden until aft
er the customs officers are In charge,
according to the following extract from
the passenger act, 18S2:
'Section 9. That it shall not be law
ful for the master of any (such) steam
ship or other vessel not In distress aft
er the. arrival of the vessel within aiiy
collection district of the United States
to allow any. person or persous except a
pilot, officer of the customs or health
officer, agents of the vessel and consuls
to come on board of the vessel or to

the customs nor after charge so taken
without leave of such officer until all

When tie revenue cutter pass system
was origiually introduced, nobody in
the government employ seems to know.
In the old days It was the custom to
meet relatives and friends back from
an ocean trip on the pier heads. The
revenue cutter pass Is a simple piece of
paper in itself, but Is the study of
many years aud countless number of
practical officials. The manner in which
it Is obtalued, the demands made upon
Its holder, the restrictions as to its use
and its composition in every way are
the result of Innumerable revisions of
passes that have preceded It during the
last 20 years, and it now omits nothing
that will protept Uncle Sam, as it really
A few years ago It was possible for
all sorts of idlers to gain admission to
a pier while the passengers of a ship
from foreign parts were lauding. This
had been the practice for some years,
and the steamship gatemau had the
sole and exclusive right of deciding
who should enter. It was supposed
and frequently discovered in Individual
cases'that dutiable goods were secretly
passed to these friends who came down
to welcome the homecomer.

Unci* Sam Grants Few Requests For

Which Go Out to Meet tbe Steam

When it is generally understood, as It
generally is not, that fully 300 persons
make application daily in season for
passes to board incoming ocean steam
ers from revenue cutters and tli^t not
more than 2 per cent of the requests
are granted, it may be understood how
valuable the treasury department con
siders these privileges. The occurrence
1b rare, but is nevertheless legal for tbe
master of the ship for -which a pass
calls to refuse to permit the holder to
board his ship. All revenue cntter
passes areu Issued by the collector of
the port and must be countersigned by
the surveyor. The revenue of every
country on dutiable personal effects
depends for its volume on the ability
of the customs authorities to have
them duly listed and taxed on arrival.
In the*event of a promiscuous granting
of cutter passes it would be possible
for a certain dishonest element that is
to be found under every sun to meet in
coming friends down the bay and sur
reptitiously bring ashore at the pier
valuables purchased abroad.

purposes of the cutter passes and to
place a further barrier around Illegal
practices the treasury department re

tp a pier during the docking of an In
coming steamer could be. obtained by
card only. This admission ticket, like
the revenue cutter passes, is not' trans

holder, the signature of the steamship
company and the Indorsement of the
collector of the port. The perfection
01 the cutter pass system as to transfer
may be appreciated when it Is stated
that the beneficiary of the pass must
affix his name to the pass on receiving
it at the custom house and again when
he boards the cutter at the Battery.
This eliminates all chance of the pass
being transferred. Transfers have
been illegally made, but the holder, be
ing unnble to furnish the same signa
ture as that supplied at the custom
house, was compelled to leave the cut
ter, and the pass was taken up.—New
