THE UUKAN ORPHANS.
It is estimated that there are now
over r0,000 orphan children in Cuba,
who are destitute, and suffering. Path
etic stories are told of hoys and girls
not over eight years of age, wander
ing about in search of food for younger
brothers and sisters. One correspon
dent of an eastern journal says that he
saw a small boy, a mere child, trying
to cook some food in an old tin can
which he had set up over a couple or
stones in a small forest grove. He
was bright eyed, ragged and dirty.
Two small, haggard looking com
panions sat by him hungry, patiently
wa-iting for him to make the water
boil. This correspondent says that if
a picture of the scene were boldly put
on canvass, and it was exhibited
through the United States, it would
secure large contributions to the Cu
ban Orphan Fund. The sight of suffer
ing and misery stimulates sympathy.
Several of the leading American
journals comment on the small contri
butions made for the re'ief of the suf
fering children of Cuba. Not a voice
has been raised in opposition to the
scheme for aid. 'Miss Clara liarton
and the newspaper correspondents urge
an the strongest language the relief of
these suffering little waifs, but only
the sum of $16,064 has been furnished
up to the 1st of August, and only a few
people, hardly a hundred, have contri
buted this amount.
The American people cannot be
accused of lacking generosity.
They responded richly to the claims
from Johnstown, when only a few hun
dred suffered from the flood. They
raore than compensated the sufferers
from the earthquake in Charleston by
sending them about $1,000,000, and over
one million of dollars was given to
the starving peasants of Russia.
But public sympathy is a quick
sympathy. It gives instr.ntly or not at
all. The moralists say that this is not
the highest order of charity, because
it 5s not the act of well regulated minds
with steady habits of giving.
The nation gave three hundred mil
lions of dollars, for "the sake of
humanity" by driving out the Span
iards from Cuba. No citizen pai
directly into the fund one dollar. But
after the nation has done its work,
the duty of the individual citizen
as apparent. It begins with the after
math of war and pestilence. But we
have the curious phenomena in tne
case of Cuba, that a generous people
permit these orphan children, together
with the sick ard decrepit to suffer
when almost within sight of "the rich
est nation on earth."
and an out of door life. He will scent j
out a uenorous community, just as j
cattle pick out water holes.
It is now pretty well known that the
hordes of tramps who infested the east- I
ern States, after the Civil war were j
:1k results of the abnormal conditions
of that war. The nature of" military
service draws out of men the habit j
and desire for monotonous and peace- j
ful labor. It was a singular exhibition '
of the social conditions, during the i
seventies, when, for instance, the towns
on xne nignways between Boston and j
New York, and the highways between I
New York, Albany, and Philadelphia. I

were infested with able bodied men.
who slept in the barns, asked and
asked and even demanded food at the
farm houses, and finally created a mild
reign of terror, until laws were passed
which grossly insulted the tramps, and
prompted them to withdraw their
patronage of the housekeepers.
For the same and other causes, the
tramp is about to infest this city.
There is but one way to dispose of
them, so far as they make personal
visits to residences. That is, to refer
them at once to the office of the Asso
ciated Charities, and decline to give
them aid. If any one desires to iriv'e
aid to any particular tramp, because
he tells an uncommon tale of woe, it
should be done through the Associated
Charities. If the tramp does not move
on, the police station should be rung
up, and the case stated. The police
department should have a qurck and
special service for this purpose. For
the outlying districts, a mounted ser
vice should be ready at all times.
Unless citizens, and especially house
keepers, act together, our social life
will soon be made annoying. The As
sociated Charities should, and will,
act for the entire community, and no
doubt they will be sufficiently provided
with funds.

against the Bill was not against Fed

any constitution which could not be

The same strange moral phenomena
appeared after the Civil war. One of
those who gave themselves to the work
of elevating the negro, often said
that the phenomena appeared to
defy analysis. For, the Constitution
had" protected slavery, and under the
slave codes of the'Southern States, the
old, the infirm, the disabled, and the
children were cared for by the slave
owners, and as a rule, they were well
cared for, and the cost of this care
made slavery an expensive affair.
Then the sword- freed the slave, and
absolved the ruined master from v all
legal obligation 4 to maintain the dis
abled. The nation that freed the slaves,
then turned them, landless, ignorant,
penniless and disorganized out into the
woods to shift for themselves. The
story of the sufferings of the aged, the
sick and the helpless children has never
been adequately told. The Freedmans
Baaik, organized under the authority of
thot Federal government, gathered in
about $3,000,000 of the money of the
emancipated slaves, and then went into
bankruptcy.
At the same time, the American peo
ple were generous and sympathetic.
Four years of war hrd however dead
ened the feelings of the people. The
law of the survival of the fittest worked
with terrible energy. No doubt, large
numbers of negroes suffered and
died through want, caused by the act
of Emancipation.
But the story of human suffering was
an old one, and the quick sympathy
died out.

It it not the "gift of the waste drops
from the cup overflowing," that reaches
the ideal charity. It is the gift that
comes from the best measure of re
sources and duty. It is perhaps for
tiinate that Nature gives but little sus
taining power to these toddling Cuban
infants, wandering about the highways
and towns. Their sufferings are sooner
ended, and the hand of the Master
gently takes them as they leave a
world not deficient in sorrow.
