Id coraraond ing thia tuatter to favorablu attention Major Stcrnbers saye: "From every poiut of vlow this shonld be enconrnged unleias Anerla means to hanl down its flap; and sneak home. The tlino wlll couio when overy Amerlcan wlll recoRnlze tho valuo of thee islands. Tako but one itetu: Cattlo thrlve here, the flnest country I over saw.

Tliey would many of them prefer to be muBtered out here, wlth nothlDfj, rather than be cotnpolled to go the StateB to be muBtered out. Theso men thlnk they should bo pald travel pay if they intond settllnc ln these islandB. Now all of thia ls based upon the idea that tho Unlted Stateg wlll rotain somo sort of lnterest ln theso Islands. Knowlng tho value of tho ploneer, I say dellberately that eaoh of these plaln soldlers, youne, vlgorouB, and nBed to the cllmate, by remalnlng here wlll be of lnestlraablo valuo to our country.

They can, when working for themselves." If this ofllcer is correct in his state ments, certainly the concesaion tho settlera ask, that they receive their truvel pay the samo ns if they roturned to the United Statea, i8 not unreason able.

Iu pet-ce, uided by wiser coiuipels, uuder the poworful protection of their benefactors, theso people were heirs to tbo blessings of civilization under a beneflcent and uplifting government, and, ultimately, to indopeudence. Thia horitago haa been forfcitcd by thia insenanto risiug against the Americans, or its r.oming and enjoyment havo been long de- ferred. This phuee of the war is, in- decd, crucl for its utter lackof senae or rcason. Tiie moro namo of roaat beof has in it something of tho quality of n "Bquato meal." Evon "canued roast beof" has much in tho terin that is reassuring, despito tho reproach that somutlmes attaches to "canned goods." But when thia canned article was"roaslod" in a cauldron kettle oud is simply boiled beof, aa appeara from tho iuquiry pros cculed in Chicago, the last chartu that can commcnd tho diot is diapellcd. Meat exlraot was mado from tho wator in which tbo meat was "roaatod," and tho tastclesa, stringy, inuutritious refuao, oftcu vilo iu its decompoacd condition, was eent to fecd tho Boldiera in Cuba and Porto Rico. Uv to dato Goneral Gomez is justi fying tho good opiuiou of him tho American peoplo wero holding. Ho recognizes but one power in C'uba, that of tho United States. His exauiple, and his hold upon tho people ought to facilitato tho work of disbanding tho patriot army, and restoring order. If tho old leader passes Buccessfully tho ordeal of peaco, his rnnk as tho futuro horo of ropublican Cuba is as cortnln as, and only less glorious than that of Washington in theso United Statea of Amorica, Tiie Chicago beof contractor says tho fresh beof was guarantecd to keop twonty-four hours from the tirae it was isauod from tho rofrigorator plaut, not Bcventy-two as had been stated. If hulf tho storiea of tho Boldiora to whora tho stuff was "iBaued" are truo, oven tho twenty-four hour limit ought to bo wiped out.

Iu war, in politic, ora tory, lltotaturcnnd thechurch, thusors of tbo Emorald Ikl havc been, oud hlill nre, foiemost ntnong nll tho peoplo of tho entlh. Thcre aro mony notable daja in the Irish calcndar of itnportant ovontH, aud tho soveniceuth of March is (lrst in polnl of timo aud first in tho Irish heart. Tho day ha. been cbosen from out tho chtioa of early datcs aa tho timo for commemoroting tho virtucs or.d celebrating tho pious dccds of St. Pat rick, him who in an carly century of theChri8tian ora, in a timo when war, cruelty and barbarism markcd tho con dition of all mankind, illustratcd the Chrisliau virtucs lu his lifo and decd. in a way that bas passed his name down through flfteen hundred years of timo, and cnthroned him in tho history and the hearts of his country men as their Patron Saint. St. Patrick'a Day, in a poculiar Bonse, ia Iroland's great day tho day when warriug factiona unito in celebrating tho good man's lifo and aorvicee, tho day when faction ls silenl, when tho historic glories of nativo land havo tho forvent, poaceful contempla tion of all Irishmcn. Historic knowoldgo of St. Patrick pattakes of the imperfections Incident to all men aud cvents of tho earlier years of tho Chrisliau era. His birth is commonly assigned to about tho year 372, in Scotland. He was taken from hia father's form wheu he was sixteon years old, during an incursion of ono of tho warring tribcp, and carriedacap tivo to Ireland. Aftor a fow years in captivity he cecaped and mado his way to Prance, and was thero ordained a pricst nnd biahop. He was sont to Ire laud as a mlssionary in tho year 432, aud died Mirch 17, 405, the day now sacred to his metnory. But tho timo of hisdoath, as well as of tho oventsof his lifo, is much disputed. Somohow, it matters little how, out of tho mists of those early times, has como the day tho tho Irish celebratc. St. Patrick did his work well so well that Ireland was known in subsequent centuries as tho ''island of the saints." Ho was a discreet man, and his moth ods then havo been most successful sinco in dealing with the errors of hu mankind. Ho dealt cautiously aud gently, aays hiatory or trnditiou, or whatever other form the story of hiB miasionary lubors has come down to po3terity, with tho old paganism of the people. Ireland was then occupicd by a great numbcr of petty tribes. The chitftains were flrst won over, and then through them thoir claus. Ho is said to havo foundcd three hundred nud Bixly five churchcs, and baptized with hia own hands 12,000 persons. Of tho Saint himsolf much that has been ro latod is inovitably fubulous, but his own story of hia lifo, which haa como down to tho present times, and which is believed to bo genuino, ia eaid to re veal n devout, eimplo.minded, unleltor ed man, and a most discrcct and otior getic mi.siouary. A great many deods of practical beneQcence, outeide' of his missionary labors, tradition attributes to St. Pat trick. For examplo, it is tho irony of fato that he should be populatly fa moup, not for tho pious deeds his biographers havo written down to hia crodit and which have beon orieily re ferrcd to abovo, but for his extinction of snakes in Ireland. Ask to-day, "Who was St. Patrick?" and sorao very largo proportlon out of overy ono hundred intorrogatod will reply, "Tho man who extorminated snakea in Ire land.'' Uut memoriea of Eriu'a anciont prieBt and bencfactor, to the Irish what Moscb is to tho lsraelitcs, do not tno nopolize on his day tho thoughts oflrish men, or of othor peoplo who, unfortun atoly, aro not ablo to claim ns tholr own tho splendid heritago of saints, or war riorc, or patriotB, who havo labored or bled for Ireland, or who havo fought for freedom and achicved high distinc tion in tho sorvico of almost overy otnor pcopio ouibiuo ot ir.iana; or who, in literaturo, liko .he famoua poet whoso linos wo havo roproduced, havo glorifled tho Irish namo and history, or in tho forura or on tho boncli havo HluBtrated tho wondorful vereatility of tho Irish mind and its cnpacity for great and variod affuirs, Amorica lius had largo opportunity to know how tho Irlshman can llght hor battlos, Tho Irish llttraiy gontus ha. unfolded aomo of its rareat qualitios in Amcrlca, On tho Irish rcllgious teachcr Ii r. s fallcn tho raatitlo of St. I'atrick, and ho has been tho atrong inculcator of patri otlsm and fldelity to tho causo of his ndfiptcd hnd.

The Department Stores Wln Agaln, In 1897 the Chicago City Co-incit took trouble to pass, for tho beuelit of tho butcbers and tho di.comilture of tbo department stores, an ordinance imposing a Qne upon any porson or corpnration carrying on a provision bu-iucsa and a Keuoral merchandtse busiues3 in the same buildlng. Atcst caso was mado uodr.r this ord inance. nio proprietor or tne liostou Sloro was Qned in a justico court for Bellintr proviaions on tno sixtti tioor of tho buildiug in which he dealt in gen- orai mercnanaiso. un appeai to tne Superior Court the defendant was heid not guilty ot any vioiation ot law. JNo toriously tho object of tho ordiuance wai to help the butcbers and injure the department stores, but of this the (Jourt naturauy retuseu to taEo uouce. "This is not a question of municipal policy," saya tbe opinior, "butaquea tiou of municipal power." The City Council had made a certain use of the public power. Was that use justifled? The Court held that it was not, for "the Court knows no reason wny tne public safety, health or raorals, or even the welfare of the people is directly involved in the sale of meats in a store where either goods, jewelry or other nrticles raentioned in the ordinance are eold." The Council had used its power to regulute markets for the purpo8e of prohibiting certain markets from com poting with certain other markets. The use of the taxing power for the cruahiug of business rivals ha. bocome a famillar device. The Illinoia Legis lature has tried, and is trjing, to grat ify the enemics of departmont stores by flnding somo measure of this kind that will hold water, and tho City Co- ncil would have great pleasure ia e-tu'.lishing large license fcea for the di'fferent clase3 of goods in the depart ment stores. Both the Republican and D.ruocralic parties of Chicago havo in their tuuuicipal campaigns no mercy ou tho30 stores. But platforms and legislatures and councils seem to have a great deal of trouble in discovering a aouud les;al meana of pushing tbo big fellows down. New York Sun. Book Notlees. Succe88.
