It is enrions that. ex-Secretary Bayard's statements concerning the dirsolute behavior, refusal to support, sending his wife to beg tor money, bringing his children to New York and there abandoning them were not snffident to satisfy Chief Jus tice Comegys that the honorable Mr. Burks Roche, "the petitioner's husband was guilty either of the offense of deser lion or willful neglect to provide for the support of his wifp, as those grounds, or rather terms, aro understood in the law '' If the law does not under tand those statements, which were not contested, to mean abandonment of the duties of father and hosband the law must be un willing to understand lu which case cumulative argument is of no service even though it ehonld be that of the col lapse of the p'overbial brick bouse to promote the penetration of an idea into the thick skulled cranium of the man who is willing to ad sit it tbrongh proper channels of proteptions. woman CAN WE AFFORD IT Factory life is unwholesome anl de grading to the young. Girls in factory towns may Burpsss the same number of country girls In chic, in knowledge of the world, in style aud perhaps even in intelligence, hut they do not surpass them in same or in morals and do not equal them iu physical strength Factory towns turn out a poor class of men and women It is beyond question or dispute that the worthy men and women of this country come now, and have come for twenty-five years, from the country The most caretnl cxamlnk tion scarcely reveals a single notable man who was born aud bred In a factory town. Beautiful, gentle, nobl», women, those of the best culture and the highest Intel ligence are still produced and nourished In our homes, hut that Is because their home life Isolates them from any con taminating influences of town or country We have no hesitancy in saying that the tendency ol the system which fosters the factory and ^attracts the girls and boys from the country to the cities is de structive to morals, injurions to health, aud detrimental to the general prosperity of the country. Thns there is an economical and a mora' side to tie tariff qnastion, which may be considered without reference to its political aspect. The shipping Industry has been de stroyed, the farming interest is dying, and the morals of factory towns are ret rograding. Gan we afford to endure these evils for the doubtful good of fostering the factory interest? Are men who are not making money by this tariff robbery of the "Infamous" McKinley bill willing to consider whether that system ;is worth what it costs in destructive and degrad ing influences to say nothing of the $800 000,009 per annum unnecessary tax? a A CASE OF STAND AND DELIVER Tbe growth cf cities and towns h»3 been abnormal within the last decade. In many commonwealths where tbe population of the country bas been either stationary or has de creawd. that of the cities witbiu tbe asms bounds has inn oared. Iu all of the states of the East, especially iu • hose where manufacturing is most ex tensive, agriculture lias declined, farming lands have become disn«ed and sometime» worthless, aud the farmers have aban doned them. This depression of fainting and farming larili which is general all throughout tbe Eastern s' st es may be accounted for, in some mtasure, by th« large emonnt of cheap Western land which has lately come into the market. But that will not account for all of the depression, even if it i* responsible for any of it, which is doubtful. The Western fever mty not account for anv of tbe decrease in value, because the population of each state has Increased so that the people have not gone from the elates, but simply from Ihe farming lands. Tbe cities have increased at the expense of the farms We have no hejl tatlon in declaring that the farmer and the farm have been lrglelated against iu fa < or of the manufacturers, Tbe farmer pays an increased price on everything he buys and as a consequence obtains less for the product of his labor. By so much aa is taken from him and hie farm to add to the wages or tbe profits of a factory or to the price of goods mad» therein, by jnet so much is be robbed of his rightful profit. Bo much sweat is forced from his brow for every cent that goes into the tariff robber's pocket. It is useless and e7ea worse than silly to argue the question that wealth can be created by legislative enact ment. No political economist ever dared advance such a proposition Then it must follow that the immense amount of wealth r.fcces ary to maintain the unprofitable _ factories and to build up euch fortunes to in as the Carnegies comes from the farms and l be mines, For the advantage of the factory—for the existence of the manu facturing Industry the proteotionists al e*e— agriculture and milling must mff-r. * po.u.cal economist wonII bring ab» -, but It is the condition to which ttose who own the factories and the goods they j produce have fore-d upon u* for their j i I <•. r. !, „ ..„.iuu. „f porsnt.sl bei eh.

Mr. Curren presented a communication from Liberty »team Fire Engine Com pany No 9, asking for the semi-annual appropriation of $1,500. The petition w as ordered gf anted as soon as there was enough money in the treasury. Mr. Bangu raised the point that the Dew company could not he included in the Fire Department, because the charter provided for certain companies which are already tie *e Mr. Curren stated that he hetd the charter of the company in bis band and by its incorporation the char ter of the city was amended to inclnde one more company, Messrs. Magee and McKenney took part In the discussion. City Solicitor William T. Lynarn stated that in his opinion the company was authorized to do business and was en titled to its share of the appropriation Mr Baugh said his only point was that Council bad received no official notlfica tlon of the existence of the Liberty Fire Company aud its incorporation. The certificate of Betretary of State Marvel, attached to the charter, was then read. Mr Hawkins wanted it deferred for one week. Chairman Sharkey of the Fire Committee, said that there was not suf ficient appropriation to the credit of the Fire Committee. The company's request for a striker and indicator in its engine boose was raferrred to the Fre Committee. J. N Aydon, superintendent of the fire alarm telegraph, sent a communica tion replying to certain strictures on his conduction of the fire aiarm system, and denying that he had control of the police slgual system. He caid in purchasing supp ies he found the best were the cheapest. A bronchial trouble prevented his presence at the session of Council. A resolution directing the chief engineer of the Fire Department to recognize the Liberty Fire Company, No 9,was carried Mr Curren presented an ordl raucs for the relief of the epptopriation for the Fi-e Department, by which the moner needed is drawn from the appropriation for incidental and miscellaneous ex penses. It was read the second time and reierred to the Finance Committee. Council took a recess for 15 minutes, so that the Finance Committee ciutd pte pare a report on the fire company ordi nance The ordinance could not be re ported upon in wocordance with the charter until the next meeting, so it was laid over. Mr Magee, chairman of the Law Com mittee, presented a resolution requesting the speakers of both houses of the Legis latine to hold all legislation of interest to this city nntil the city oonld take pritjer steps therein. Mr. Sharkey presented a resolution di recting the city soliciter to prepare a bill for presentation to the Legislature re quiring all overhead wires to be put underground within two years after the passage of the act. Both rescindons were carried Chairman Sharkey,of the Fire Commit tee, offered a resolution authorizing the committee to hire a competent person to nlace the syst< m in working order Mr Vandegrlft asked if the extra work would cost anything Several members thought that as superintendent Aydon was ill, he deserved some consideration. Mr. Sharkey stated that the system had not workei properly for five months that the western sectiou was entirely cut off fromtbe engine houses.and that few of the boxes were workirg properly. Mr Magee thought if Mr. Sharkey knew that the system had not been cared for by the superintendent, he sbonld have reported before. Mr, Sharkey said that he got his information recently. The resolution was carried. The resolution directing that the semi annual appropriations in favor of the fi;e companies and department officers be drawn, was carried. Each company will receive $1,500, with the exception of tfce Washington company, which will receive $1,600.
