In the November Harper'a Is a long "short story" (1ft pages), called "A Pink Villa," by Constance Feniinore Wools.-n, which Is In pleasing contrast (from a health ful, cheerful, optimistic point of view) with her "Neptune's Shore," in the October Number. No attempted murder and ac complished suicide will delight Miss Wool son's morbid admirers this time, but the sketch of the American mamma abroad with her daughter will entertain them In a more wholesome way. The tale Is beauti fully illustrated with drawings by C. 8. Relnhart. That lovely spot, Sorrento, Is the scene of the story. Mrs. Mary Hartwell Catherwood, whose serial story, "The Romance of Dollard," begins In the coming November Century, Is an American lady, resldlnf in I loo pea ton, IlL Among her previous writings are two books for young people entitled, "Rocky Fort" and "Old Caravan Days." She has been greatly Interested in Canadian subjects since her visit In Canada four years ago, when she wan the guest ot an American consul's family and saw the In side of Canadian life. She herself has lately said : "The story ot Dollard at first Impressed me as Incredible. I thought of It lone before hunting ud records, htstorl-1 cal evidence, and contemporary life. Fin ally I began to make It a story." The his- j torlan, l'arkman, has written a preface for Mrs. Cattierwood's novel, and Mr. Hand ham, lately of Canada and now of Boston, hag made Illustrations for It, and It will run through four numbers of the Century, Mr. Edward Atkinson's serlea of articles will for several months continue to be a feature of tbe Forum, and his contribution to tbe November number will be on "The Struggle for Subsistence." One purpose of the Forum is to present the best construe tlve thought on American economic sub jects, and Mr. Atkinson's series of articles Is the most advanced work he baa yet done In this direction. The November number of The Popular Science Monthly deals with many subjects of live and substantial Interest. The first article is on "Tbe Effects of Protection," by Charles S. Ashley, who alms to show that protection is expensive, that it benefits but few, fslls to keep up wages, checks our export trade, and makes us "a nation of liars," and our Government a heedless spendthrift. "Altruism Economically Con sidered," by Charles W. Smiley, Is a vigor ous Indictment of those alum. givers who are too lazy to give judiciously, and, who consequently exert a debasing Influence upon the' poor. Mr. W. J. McGee tells what Is known about the earliest Inhab itants of America, In an Illustrated article entitled "Paleolithic Man in America; his Antiquity and Envlronmedl." Other arti cles In this number are, "Problematical Organs of Sense," by Sir John Lubltock ; "Ainu Family-Life and Religion," by J, K. Goodrich; Prof. N. S. Shaler's-account of "Habits of the Great Southern Tortoise;" "Everyday Life of Indian Women,'' by Captain R. C. Temple; "The Problem of a Flying-Machine,"' by Prof. Joseph Le Cente ; "The Prolongation of Human Life," by C. M. Hammond, who has collected In formation on these points from several thousand persons; some curious observa tions on "Sun-Power and Growth," by Ju lius 8tlnde, and Dr. Oswald's "Four-Handed Sinners." A portrait Is given of Ed ward Atkinson, with an account of his life, and his work In economic science. the forum tor November contains a broad review of Old World politics, Euro pean and Asiatic, by Prof. Armlnlus Vam- bery, the famous Hungarian author, who writes on "Is the Power of England De clining?" After a retrospect of the meth ods whereby the English power was built up, he reviews the modern mismanagement ot India, Russian encroachments, the de cllne of the British army and navy, and the changed conditions of colonization and conquest since the rise of the mere party politician In England. His conclusion Is that there Is danger of a decline of British power. Another foreign political study In this number la "Canada and the United States,'' by Prof. Goldwln Smith, who be lleves in ultimate annexation. He discusses the subject from many points of view, and pays his compliments to the politicians of both countries. No Important phase of the subject Is overlooked In this review of the 4resent status of the question. Following the discussion in the October Forum by Prnf T.niwlff of Harvard, of "How the Tariff Affects Wages," In the November number. Representative W. C. P. Breckin ridge shows, from a Democratic point of view. "How tbe Tariff Affects industry." He points out a number of Industries that are strangled by the present tarirr, anu allows how the passage of tbe Mills dill would add to our Industrial activity. Mr Edward Atkinson's article this month Is on "The Struggle for Subsistence." lie shows, amng other things, how greatly the hours of labor have been lessened by the present generation of working men. Besides Mr Atkinson's and Mr. Warner's articles, social subnets are treated in "After Us Wlnit?" by the Rev. Dr. Kendrlck, retro gressliin; ami in "The Last Resort f the Landless," by Mr. 11 J. Desmonu or mi cago, who sees danger to our Institutions In the leiuiug of the uuinbor of landhold era. The Novemlier f nprr ojiens with a ful' rmt frontispiece by E. A. Abbey accom panying the old song "Why canst thou uot as others do" lllustrtted articles are 'The Lower St Lawrenc ,"' "Elk-hunting !n the Rockv Mountains." "Boats on the Taius, "The New York Real Estate Ex chanee " ,4()ur Journey with Hebrides and "A Museum of the History of Paris, In which the "Monday clun" of this city no doubt will be Interested.

A goodly crowd of republicans, headed by the band, attended the La Salle republican rally on Tuesday. They, er part of them, bring haok glowing accounts of the parade and fire works, but all are singularly silent upon the speakers. The oold, bare facte are that Joe Fifer ocoupied his entire speaking time in explaining, or attempting to explain, what Gen. Palmer bad said derogatory to himself and party.while Hill was so uninter esting that the crowd about him actually left soon after he had oommenoed speaking. The orowd from this oity had been prom ised a train at 11 o'clock, but it oama not. A freight, however, cam along about one o'olock and a part of the orowd boarded it. All but half a doxen were speedily put off, and when the train had proceeded about a mile two of these gentlemen were discovered between two oars riding on the bumpers by a brakeman, who weilded a large club. He made a pass at on of the boys with his cudgel, and the other drawing a revolver, presented it at the breakman's head, remark ing that it would bo unhealthy to use the instrument. The train then stopped and all but two were put off, the balance being forced to wait for tbe passenger. H Now TMvhlea. A Santa Fe engineer, whose leisure hours are spent In the not too quiet village of Btreator, got between a wronged girl and a relentless lawyer, the other day, and.Is now forced to divide his month's salary with the young woman whom he ought, by all moral laws, to have made his wife months ago. A few months ago, about the middle of May, this knight of the throttle bade fare well to Btreator and went away on a sum mer vacation, leaving the young lady to do as best she was able. She became 111 shortly after his departure, and for weeks lay hovering between the earth and the I s-rate. She was poor little sixteen year- old girl, but what cared this big brute for hit victim f But beside being pretty and prepossessing, the young lady bad grit, and, by careful attendance, recovered. The engineer, who had been kept posted, returned when he heard of his paramour's recovery, and was given an engine. But he had reckoned badly, and must either pay her half his salary or leave Htreutor. It Is likely that he will leave. They Itruke Jail. Two seedy strangers were placed In the city Jail for safe keeping on Saturday night. They were woefully Intoxicated, and the olllcers went away with their usual smile of satisfaction. But, though drunk, the strangers were by no means lacking In Ingenuity, for no sooner had the fumes of the liquor censed to ascend to their mud died brains than they set aliout devising a plan to escape a Sunday of confinement nml a Monday morning fine. The jail I an Insecure place at best, and, with the aid of the heavy stove poker, they pried the locks off the concern and left the city. Ktnjiel Klftfn Trnlna. The regular 1 :1 1 freight on the Hock Is land road was tbe cause of the entire euspeii' eion of traffic from Joliet to Bureau June tlon on Wednesday morning. The train had pulled away from the Q junction, and was makind lively time toward Marseilles, when one wheel ef the engine and the three box cars immediately in the rear jumped the track at a switch just west of tbe Fox river bridge. The derailed cars bumped over tbe ties of the road and brUge, breaking and tearing them until the engin eer discovered that his train was pulling very heavily, and stopped. By this time the cars bad become so badly mixed as to entirely close the bridge to traffic; it re maining in this condition until nine o'clock. By eigbi o'olock nearly half the north side stood with it month open gating upoa mile after mile of cars crowded together at at in tervals of fifty feet, from Buffalo Kock half way to Marseilles. Three passenger and a doxen freight trains were at a standstill within sight, and ten more were stopped at way stations. They left seven hours behind time at nine o clock. Tbe profound, though often sadly nebu lous, philosopher of the Ottawa Republican, treats us to the following chunk of economio isdom : The larger the supply from abroad tbe smaller the demand for the homemade, the lower the prioes, profits and wages. No fact is better established tnan this, and any number of trades unions or any amount of skill of laborers cannot "govern the prloe of laborers" while ignoring it. To the extent that a high tariff excludes the foreign supply to that extent does it raise and keep up wages. What the "eritter" is trying te get through him is, that it is not by the law of supply and demand, nor in any degree by trades unions, that wages are- governed, but that wages go up or down as the supply for the home trade is larger or smaller from abroad Very good. Now, then, suppose the Mills bill is passed, the tariff on wool removed, and our manufacturers are then enabled not only to replace the $45,000,000 of woolen goods now annually brought from abroad by produota of their own, but to manufacture many more millions more for exportation, woulden't that be likely very considerably to enhance the prioe of labor in this oountry? Having oonoeded that much, suppose you ease your consoienoe a little further and tell your readers, what you surely must know also to be true, that there is not a line or clause In the Mills bill which, in purpose or possible effect, would lead to a dollar's increase in the importation , v . I of manufactured articles from abroad, but that its sole aim is to increase the importation of raw materials so as enable our home manufacturers, not only of woolens, but abo of cottons, linens, silks, etc, eto , to stop the present heavy importations in these lines from abroad and supply them from our own factories and thus add largely to the de mand, as it then also must to the price of labor in tais country. If eur esteemed co temporary will trace up his consoienoe to the height of such an .admission, Ottawa will reap more fame from the possession of a republican editor of such honesty, than she ever would reap from a doxen organ factories or electric street railways. According to the Morris I nikpendenl, J . II. EckleB made the astounding statement In his SDeech In that city that "the labor cost of the finished article Is 18 to 25 per cent here, and only 25 to 35 per cent la England." Mr. Hckles may not know it, but the well known English economist and statistician, Editor Proctor, of Knowledge, does not agree with htm. He says: "Where the American laborer gets 72 per cent (of the value of the finished product)," &c., &c.Ilepubltcan. Does he ? Well, the last American au thority on the subject whose falrnesa re publicans cannot question was the census of 1880, which showed that In all Indus tries the average paid to labor was only 17.7 per cent of the value of the finished product, while, It may be remarked pa renthetlcally, tbe rate of tariff tax for the benefit of the same Industries was then 40 per cent, showing an excess of 23 3 per cent of tariff over labor cost. That census gave as value of product, $5,369,579,191 ; amount paid for labor, $1(47,953,795, giving 17.7 per cent as the amount paid for labor, Now, In order to compare American wages with foreign wages, the percentage of each, etc., it is obvious that the facts should be ascertained In the same form In both cases, which Carroll D. Wright, Com missloner of Labor, says, is not often poesl ble, except by a special investigation, which has not yet been made. He says, furthermore, "The true element of wages can only be ascertained by the most careful analysis of the efficiency of labor In all directions." In speaking of ta bles of bis compilation showing the varla tlon In the prices paid for labor of the same kind In different states, be says: "A casual examination of these summaries will show that any attempt to prove an American rate of wages must necessarily result In failure. There Is no such thing as an American rate of wages." The only statement, then,, that can be made la that given above: that the census shows the average percentage of the value of finished product that goes to labor In this country Is 17.7 per cent, and that the republican claim that the tariff is Imposed to protest latxyr Is a fraud, liecause the pro tected manufactures In 1HH0 got the benefit of 'i'i.'i per cent of tariff more than they paid to Mr men. They probably get more now, since the present tariff averages 47 per cent and wages are no higher than in 1S80 How Is It' possible to talk of rates of wages as affected by the tariff when In the gloas business, for example, foremen in Ky. get $:( a day and $4.7 in N. I ; or gather ers ft In Illinois and $2 00 In N. J.; or leersmen $1 f)0 In Pa. and 2 48 lu N. J.; or mixers fl.tiO In W. Va. and fl In Ken tucky; or packers fl.50 in W. Va. and in N. J ; or teamsters $1.35 In Ky. and $'i iu Cal. ; or, In the iron business, rollers In rolling mills $3 45 a day in Del. and $7 73 in 111.; or wixil sorters 80c in N .1. and $3.20 in Maryland; or weavers $108 In Ind. and $1.8.') In Penn.; or loom fixers ti'iz In N. C. and $'j 07 in Penn., the Bame tariffs protect labor in all these states alike. It la m uilfestly absurd to talk of the tariff's raising or regulating wages, and it Is absurd to everyone except a republican editor of the slH of the ( ne quoted, who would not see the truth if he could. rruiterlty I'ncler Free Trade. In wealth, per capita, Mr. Mulhall ranks the nations as follows: I.England; 2, Hol land; then France, Denmark, Australia, United States, Sweden, Canada, Belgium, Germany. Iq annual earnings per capita Australia Is first: then England, the United StateB, Canada, Holland, France, Denmark, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, In the order named. Mr. Mulhall also computes that the average man In tbe United States works 113 days to gain his food for a year, as compared with 114 day's work In England ; In England ne worRs .54 uays lor nis cioin log. here he works 40; house-rent and taxes take 29 and 32 days In England, 30 and 33 days In the (Jolted Mtates; and the Englishman consequently has 91 days In the 300 left for other purposes, Including savings, whereas the American has but T5. The banking capital and deposits of Eng land are $125 per Inhabitant; of Australia, $150; of the United States, $50. The rail roads of the United States carried 270,000, 000 passengers in 1882, those of England carried 752,000,000, and the alight differ ence In railroad rates Is by no means an ex planation of the difference. 1 he scnooi attendance In England has Increased from forty per cent less per capita than ours In 1830 to about tne same, ine posxomce returns show a greater Increase In the use of the malls In England than here. And that faithful index of popular condition, the criminal calendar, shows a steady de crease for a long period, until, In 1885, there was but one conviction to 6,vra persons in England : while America has one convic tion to 930 persons, which has been about the rate for a considerable time. Ana tne statistics of DauDerlsm. while not so favor able for England, shows a steady and rapid decrease for fifty years, and the ratio of paupers to population Is about one fourth what it was in 1840. It would be interest ing, had we space, to show the greater con sumption per capita of many articles In England than In America, as of woolen clothing, sugar and rice ; and to show the vast Increase seen in England during the past forty years.

There will be, if the Mills bill becomes a law, a renewal of the experiment made in cotton, silk, leather and various. other manufactures that of free crude material tor our manufactures. We enlarge the lumber free list; and we give wool, flax, hemp, mantlla, sisal, and tinned plate free of duty to tha American manufacturer.
