a daughter, aged ,11, died of typhoid

We have learned of a movement
that is now being agitated-by mem.

of adjoining towns for purposes of
sociability and improvement. We
consider the suggestion a good one
and believeo that both the order and
its members would be directly bene.
fitted by regular conferences of this
kind as the natural consequence of
the travel and interchange -of ideas
that would be occasioned by this

business relations would be estab

Gee. W. Childs, the wealthy and
benevolent Philadelphia editor and
the bestknown private citizen of
America, died on !Feb. ad. The
Philadelphia Press says:
"The life of Gee ,W. Childs is like
a romance--a romance with may
lessons. A lone and almost penni
less, at the sire of.l~2 years. he stood
at the bottom of the ladder and
looked up. 26is youthful eye caught
something at the top and slowly,
withd.rm grip and careful step, he
made the ascent ,that would have
seemed impossible to many another.
As he wotked and won he looked
for others to share hia4acccess, until

live long in their memory.
In Abilene, Kansas, a jjury in a
suit for damages brought bysthe fam
of a negro who had been lynched
there asessed the same at 42. This
leads the Picayune to philosophize
thusly-on the matter:--'in the light
of the fact that Kansas is the state
in.which t(1be war for the freeing of
the negroes was ,virtually started,
aad inwhich John Brown the mar
tyr'iu the cease of the black man,
earned his apostolae arand was " sub
sequently deified, it does seem that
$2 is a pitiful sum to assess as dam
ages against a Kansas community
that turned oat and lynched a negre.
In comparison the Leouisiana verdiet.i
are instructive. The Savannah
News, commenting on the incident
declares that "of all the States in
the Union abstract justice for the
blacks obtained most in Kansas.
Yet we have a rKansas jury return
ing a $2 verdict fol the lynching of
a negro. Fred Douglas,not.lovg agr>
remarked, that "in the South a dead
nigger is a joke." In ,ansas, it
seems a "dead nigger is not even

'There is one more chance for
sugar, and it is a slim one at best.
Gertain eeaators have intimated
their intention to stand !by us in
the senate; but we must not so they
can do so. We hardly think in
view of their recent experience the
sugar people wilLmnake any ffort to
restore the bounty; but there is
danger that they will make :another
aistake, and:against it we want to
warm them. And that is that they
will either not,agree upon whatduty
they will try to get, or that they
will ask for a duty so high that it
will be refused. !lf they ask for a
two-cent duty, ,or even one and a
half and aceompany it with the dec
laration that it will take this to en
able the planter to live, they will
t nothing. Congress is not going
to give ary.snoh duty. A cent, or
a cent and a q.uarter at the very
farthest, is all hthw:can be hoped for.
And if any rash declarations are
made in regard to athe monnt of
duty which is absolutely necessary,
there is danger of cocgress saying
to itself, "We cannot give these
people what they say is absolutely
essential to thep otection .f sugar;
jwhy should we give them anything
at ail, 4ad thnustax the people at
large without beettkg them?',
Herein lies the dasge. We 'warn
the repretentatives of dle sugar in.
terest against it,4s we warned them
against their other mistake. Will
they heed the wartring?-.-'N. O.
