nter human life because our thought are connected with it. So evolution L-ei-omes a reality. We evolve, the universe evolve.

In this way, life ha a meaning for all, and our purposes become the cause of our destiny. If aredis-ati-tiwl, we make new causes. As we sutler for our own mistakes, we reap our own rewards. So long as we desire to re turn here, so long as we desire a better life, there is always a better life before us. Whatever we are, we can be genuine. If a man lives according to his better life, we need never ignore the needs of the soul." A PLEA FOR HER RACE. Miss Ida B. Wells, Agitator Against Negro Lynching, Speaks. New York, July 29. Miss Ida B. Welle, the advocate of the rights of the colored people and the agitator against lynching, who has just returned from a four months' tour of lecturing on the ubject in England, epoke tonight at the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal church. The church was filled, many white people be ing among the listeners. T.Thomas Fortune, president of the Afro American League, introduce;! Mi?s Wells, who said she went to Eng land at the invitation of some of the prominent thinkers there, after having been denied the privilege in Boston, New York and before the President. She addressed 102 meetings in England, she said, and as a result an anti-lynching com mittee composed of prominent peo ple was formed at each of these meetings. Resolutions were passed urging the American public to abolish the barbaric outrage against human life. Miss Wells said that the people of the South are as bitter against the negroes as they were before the days of freedom. When she was in England copies of news papers containing articles attack ing her personal character were Bpread broadcast there and that everything was done to influence the British public against her. "We want the colored race to be placed in the proper light before the people of this country," Miss Wells said, "for there is in litera ture no true type of the negro as he is today. The lawless lynch ings in the South for alleged crimes against the whites are in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred simple outrages against our race. The press is in control of the whites, and the attacks upon us are colored to suit themselves. "The colored people of this coun try should organize themselves from one end of the country to the other. They should at least con tribute the sinews of war with which to fight the battle. The South knows that we are much disorganized. It is our duty to see that every story published from the South, in which some negro is accused of some fiendish act and lynched for it, is run down by our own detectives, if necessary, and the other side of it published. There are two sides to every lynch- Public Concert. The Hawaiian band, under the leadership of Professor Berger, will give a concert this (Saturday) afternoon at 4 :30 o'clock, at Emma Square.

The Salvation Army as a Safety Valve in England. Mv own view is that anarchism is not so much a creed a3 a mental condition, and that as suck it be longs to the domain of psychology rather than politics. Shall I of fend any susceptibilities if I ven ture upon the opinion that it i3 the insanity proper to an age of de mocracy and universal suffrage? Every age has its characteristic in sanity. Minds are colored by their surroundings. There are always numbers of weak brains liable to be carried away by some current, doctrine or delusion, such as miracle-working, possessed by demons, witchcraft, or the dancing mania which last swept over Europe more than once in the middle ages in an epidemic form. Nothing is more curious, indeed, in the his tory of mental disease than the moral epidemics of which scores and hundreds are recorded in the text books, from lycanthropy, the were-wolf superstition, to pyro mania or incendiarism. Religion ha3 been held responsible for many moral epidemics ; it is now the turn of politics which gtves us an archism. Ravachol, Henry and Santo have become assassins ; but that is the fault of their period. Two hundred years ago they would heve been convulsionaries or theo maniacs. Anarchism might have remained in decent obscurity where Prud homme left it, as an extreme form of socialism, had it not had the misfortune to attract the half-witted and "crank" elements of the com munity. Such elements are always present, and it is important that jhey should be drained off in to harmless channels. Happily, they are not necessarily pernicious and if English anarchism is not as formidable as the continental va riety, it i3 probably because the Salvation Army uses up and turns to good account a deal of inflam matory material in our midst. The continental Governments which ob ject to General Booth are somewhat in the position of the short-sighted farmer who shoots the rooks in ig norance of the fact that they are his benefactors in disguise.
