Fbom interviews published by some of
ihe Chicago newspapers, there are people
IThoare led to believe that Carter fiarris
>on is very muoh pleased with the position
which he has been given as second on the
presidential ticket with Butler as the
head. It is scarcely neoessary to say that
all interviews in which Hairison is made
to profess satisfaction at the nomination
and a willingness to except it are bogus.
Harrison, with all his slang snd
professed deference to the wishes
of the mob, is a shrewd politician
who sees well into the future,
who oan calculate with great accuraoy the
probabilities of a give situation, and who
has all the sense neoessary to distinguish
the difference between a vice presidential
nomination and one whioh shall eventuate
in his being made governor of Illinois.
Harrison has his eye at present, on the
senate chamber in Washington. He pro
poses to reach there via the gubernatorial
mansion at Springfield, 111. He may end
by wanting to be vice president or presi
dent of the United States, but at the pres
ent moment his ambition is limited to the
route just indicated.
A day or two sinoe the United States
lenate appropriated some eight hundred
thousand dollars for the completion of the
Oapitol terraces and the stairways con
nected with the approaches thereto. Mr.
Ingalls, of Kansas, in a few plain remarks
indicated tnat he had little or no appreci
ation of the sublime ejstem of art em
ployed npon the work done about the
Capitol. The Kansas senator quite shocked
the sages of the senate, who look wise
and remain dnmb in the presence of art,
bnt vote away the people's money as if do
ing a meritorious thing, by his breezy west
ern comments. The senator inquired:
Why it would not be practicable to remove
the melancholy pile of funereal statuary whioh
meets the eye at the approach to the mdn front
of the capitol. Sorrow, Mr. Ingalls said, was
aaturallv secluded. People did not go out into
the public ways and market-places to weep for
departed friends. It was his opinion that it
would be a great improvement if that monu
ment were removed at once to some adjacent
cemetery I Laughter. | It would be iu keep
ii g with the fitness of things if it were situated
on a graaay lain, by a sheet of still water, sur
coundad by weeping willows and the other appro-
priate Purnunding* of sorrow. But that this
monument shouid stand at the principal ap
proach to the capitol, surrounded by fifteen
cent lodging houses and nmid the din and up
roar of t'avel. was too mu h for the senator's
sense of the decorum which perta'ned to art.
While Mr. Ingall's points were well taken
Ihe drowsy old senate voted the appro
priation, and went down into the basement
for onps of "tea" served in china. It was all
• ry solemn.
At the meeting of the American Agricul
tural association, held in New York city
last week, a paper on the influence of
forests was read by E. D. Goodwin, of
Connecticut. He made the point that the
forests should occapy at least three-fifthB
of the surface of the entire land, and this,
5ftr. Giodwin said, was not
too high an estimate. The
whole northern Atlantic coast should
be under forestry laws. As a remedy
against drouths poor lands should be left
o grow up to forests. It was urged that
the state might remit the taxes and pay a
bounty for forest planting.
The subject of oleomargarine was dis
cussed, and the manufacture condemned,
though the traffic was shown to be very
, large, one speaker stating that four-fifths
! of the batter sold in New York and Brook
j iyn wis adulterated; another stated that
i on of 130 dealers *n New York, Brooklyn
; aadJe sey City forty per cent, sold only thv
j artiicial butter. England buys 200,000,
000 p junds of butter annually, but this
country sends only 20,000,000 pounds, and
the Urger part of that oleomargarine.
$2,0 10,000,000 is invented in dairying in
this 0 tuntry, and it is imperriled by arti
ficial mtter. The statement, perhaps, is
pretty strong, but without doubt there is
more in the matter than people generally
.-up ose.
The most origninal and perhaps the
most interesting thiug that transpired
daring the se-sion was the reading of a
paper from Senator Vanoe, of North Caro
lina, upon "The urbanization of Farmers
for political protection." Tne writer as
serted that the agricultural class is the
prey of all the otuer cl -.sses; eaoh of the
others is more honored and has greater
profit. In the legislation of the country
the farming interest was neglected. The
banking, railroad, stock dealing and
manufacturing interests regulate and eon
trol affairs, m«ke and execute laws, and
the farmers are left to make the most of
the poor pickings that happen to be left.
The senator advised the farmers to study
politics, turn lobbvists,and look out sharp
er for No. 1. Upon tbis point his counsel
was as follows:
Every interest in America comes to Washing
ton to influence legislation except
iha agricultural. Why should not the farmers
oe ther.-. also? It is not a reputable business
•• bbying, I admit, hut it is done, neverthel ss,
h .d groa'ly to thebmafic of those who do it,and
to the detriment of Uio-o who do not Tha
business interests are as regulariya »d continual
ly on hand as the representatives of foreign
nations. Ihe farmer is nut there, never has
been, and is therefore prosumed to be sa isfied,
aud to make no objection to any proposed legis
1 .tion whatever.
It is to be doubted if this is the
wisest advice to be offered or
acted npon. It is not by any means true
that the farmers are a ne. Itcted or nnrep
e-euted class. The agricultural interests
ot the country are too immense to admit
f that, and congre smen dare not so ut
erly neglect the major portion of their
■■•■onstituwnoies. As to dressing up the
I armer in the garb of the lobbyist, the
ad7ice is not good and the gain entirely
uroblematical. The agricultural class is
r rogn'zed as a great power in
the land, if not the greatest,
and while amid the selfishness of men its
interests are not alwa>s zealously guarded,
yet lias in true, tnat the farmer cannot
suffer unless other classes suffar with him.
Agricultural prosperity moans general
prosperity, and no man in
public life is so stupid or knavish as
not to know it and be governed
accordingly. Through their votes and
home oonventioa3 a»id personal expres
sions the farmer 13 a greater power,
reaches more directly and emphatically the
c ire of legislation than the best organized
lobby that ever has or can exist, and for
whatever grievance the farmer suffers, the
remedy is in his own hands, and he oan
repair the wrong more swiftly, not in the
lobby, but by other means, than any other
class of citizens, or any combination of
interests. The only danger to the farmer
in this country is his own indifference to
himself, and the lobby will curse him in
stead of help him. No class is se inde
pendent and poweifal,oan so readily make
and unmake men, and no class has so
much of prosperity,
The placing before congress of some
late diplomatic correspondence shows that
in several instances our diplomatic re pre
sentatives have signally failed to attain the
end Bought by ths government's represen
tatives. Frelinghuysen opened a corres
pondence with the British secretary of
foreign affairs, Lord Granville, in rearard
to the case of a naturalized
Amerioan citizen named O' Don
ned, who had slain a British
sebjeot on British soil, and was about to
be tried for the offense by a British jury.
Our aoute secretary of state opened a cor
respondence, the objeot of which pnrpo fe
ed to te a desire to secure jnstice for the
prisoner, although in oases where deliber
ate murder is punishable by hanging, this
request of the government that a man
should have justioe done him, was equiva
lent to a demand for his exeoution. It
may be, also, that there was a request
from our secretary that the execution
should be delayed until evidence in
the case oould be submitted.
to this government, as if this people
doubted the competence of a British court
and jury to pass on evidence presented in
o&ee of a very common place murder. The
reply to this demand is said to have been
curt and formal, and was in the nature of
a refusal, whioh was exactly what was to
have been expeoted under the circum
stances, and is just what would heve oc
curred had the situation been reversed, and
had the British government asked ns to
send them evidence on whioh we were
abont to hang a onvioted murderer.
A second snub has been given Mr
Frelinghnyson by the Russian government.
A naturalized Russian went back to Rus
sia, was arrested as a deserter and his
passport taken from him, and was ordered
to be sent to Siberia. Oar secretary of
state took the matter np, and remon
strated against so grave an abase, to
which thus far there haB only come a re
ply from a Russian official that, as the
man was a Russian he had no right to an
Amerioan passport, and it was therefore
taken from him.
The third case is the well remembered
one in which we undertook to interfere in
the quarrel between Chili and Peru in the
interest of the latter. Not only were our
representations contemptuously received,
but they were insultingly replied to by a
menace in which it was hinted that Chili
might send her Huascar up here and blow
some of onr seacoast towns off their foun
We dropped Chili as we have lately
dropped both England and Russia.
In the matter of the American hog, our
threats have not prodnoed the slightest
effect on either France or Germany. In
fine, our foreign relations, so far asj we
have any, as they have been brought iuto
light by lately published diplomatic cor
respondence, are in a most unsatisfactory
condition. We have no fleet to resent any
insult from any foreign government, and
hence when we get a slap in the face we
have to put the affront in our pockets. All
that remains to be done after we have
been slapped or kicked, is to show the
lacerated parts to the public, as has just
been done in the case of the Russian and
British correspondence. As we cannot
make a menace good without the liability
of being kicked out of the oontrovery, per
haps the next best thing to do is to do
nothing. It may be well, if we objeot
to being kicked, to keep our
selves from reaoh of the swing of the
ponderous boot of foreign secretaries.
This means let us severely attend to our
own business. Representations to Russia
of the citizenship of the man Wagner
were entirely proven, and being founded
in justice will in the end meet with suc
cess. But what we attempted to do in the
case of Great Britian and Chili was simply
a gross impertinence. Let ns avoid this
class of humiliation by not giving an oc
casion for it. One or two more secretaries
like the present one at Washington, and
there would not be a nation in existence,
however contemptible as to power and
dignity, bnt what would not hesitate to
treat ns with gross contempt.
The question of where to hold the Dem
oo atio national oonvention is being placed
a little in the background by the question
of when it shall be held. There is quite
an expression in favor of holding it in
August and making a short cam
paign. There is a good deal of
en e in the proposition. The
it .public-ins inaugurate their cam
paign early in June, and the Democrats
oan batter away at their platform and can*
didates for a coaple of months, and get
the country into a frame of mind de
cidedly favorable to a change. The cam
paign will really be in progress, but it will
plac9 the Democrats permanently on the
aggressive for the entire campaign.
The Republicans having more sins to
answer tor, and, being in power, having
more anxiety, need to make an early be
gim ing in order to get through by the 4th
of November, but the Democrats, with
olenr consciences can make their fight
sharp and decisive. A three monihs
campaign is long enough on the part of
the Democrats.
The time of the convention will have
something to do with determining the
place where it should be held. It is al
ready claimed that the ohoioe has nar
rowed down to Saratoga and Chioago. If
it should be hell in August, that would
a..ut out Saratoga, as the fashionable sea
son would be at its heighth and there
would be no room in the hotels for the
multitude. Cincinnati and St. Louis
ought to be counted out in any event,
Cincinnati has no claim in any event. It
has but two first class hotels, and it is a
little strain to place one of those in that
category. Besides, the heat is oppressive,
the location of Music hall where such
assemblages meet is distant from the
hotels and inconvenient for strangers to
find, the water is bad (which compels the
crowd to "take to the hills" for beer), and
discomfort exists on every hand.
While the heat in Cincinnati is bad, St.
Louis is at melting temperature. The
hotels and plaoe of meeting are superior
tD Cincinnati, but vastly inferior to what
is presented in Chioago The only real
claim St. Louis has ever had to the con
vention was the talk of ''the oid ticket."
It seemed appropriate, if the ticket of 1876
wss to be selected to repeat th •> work in
the same oity where it originated.
But, aside from Mr. Tilden's unwilling
ness to be a oandidate, Indiana seems like
ly to destroy the charm of "the old tioket"
by urging McDonald for the Presidency,
thus shutting out Hendricks. Mr. Hend
ricks defeated the renomination of the
old tioket in 1380 by refusing to
accept the second plaoe, and
in 1884, when he is ready
to take the second place, his state presents
another man for president and ho is even
excluded from the minor position. This
removes the last vestige of claim for St.
In all this contest Chicago stands pre
eminent. Her hotels are numerous and
immense. The place of meeting is with
in five blocks of every first class hotel in
the city; everything is convenient
o omfortable, and adequate at Chicago.
There is no convenience or comfort lack
ing that oan be supplied anywhere. It is
greatly to be hoped that the Democratic
national committee will have sufficient
wisdom to seleot Chioago. The fact that
the Republican convention meets at Chioago
is rather an argument in favor, instead of
against, the Democrats meeting at the
same plaoe. Let the antidote be adminis
tered upon the same spot where the poison
is generated.
Theee is hardly any ordeal to which the hu
ma*i nerve-) are subjected bo trying as the ap
plication of dentistry. At Hcranton, Pa., Mrs.
James Stevenson, the mother of seven children,
the youngest four moi.ths old, visited a dentist
for the purpose of having teeth extracted. She
was accompanied by her family physician who
administer *d an sesthetic compound of equal
part? of ether an i chloroform. After the first
dose two teeth were pulled, a second was given
and nine were extracted, after a third inhalation
five more were pulled. At this
point the dentist euddenly discovered that he
had been pullirg the teeth of a dead woman,
and that Mrs. Stevenson must have been dead
before the last three teeth were extracted. The
treatment the poor woman received at the hands
of the doctor and dentist was shockingly unpro
fessional and b i utal. The case is to undergo se
vere legal scrutiny, and the least that can be
done wdl be to debar the two professional
wretches from further opportunity to torture
and murder an unhappy victim. Some other pun
ishment, as near the capital penalty as possible,
would not be too severe a retribution for such
an instance of criminal, blundering ignorance.
The Boston Journal, with a touch of irony,
says that the young ladies of the Hygiene club
of that city are enjoying themselves by inspect
ing the plumbing apparatus in new buildings.
Well, why not? What harm is there in the
coming matrons having some information that
will ei.abie them te live wholesomely, and pro
tect themselves from the discomforts and dis
ease that lurks in the average plumb.ng appar
atus. It will be a happy day when the plumber
must be an educated man instead of the bung
ling ignoramus that' he usually is. The more
people know how they live, and how to live,
the greater the immunity fiom discomfort and
the greater the security of health and life.
Gen. Simon Cameron sat in a low, easy ohair
at Galveston, Texas, and philosophised as a gen
tleman eignty-four years of age is priviledged
to do. The subject of the right of women to
vote was discussed. Gen. Cameron pronounced
the idea of women being parmitted to vote as
mischievious. "They had better stay at home,"
he e»aid, "and learn to make puddings and such
things." Since the General was sued for breach
of promise by a Washington widow he has
not inclined to think women need any new
"rights," and, in fact, if he could have his own

A London clergyman, for a long period en

men, their first ideas of higher life. Such cases
he declared were frequently met with among
those wh» do pot attend churches. One coeter
monger, he relates, came to him because he had
been convinced by a play that a
course of reckiess vice was but the highway to
misery. The cleigy of England generally, are
fast becoming more broad toward the stage, and
in this field of progress they have the suppjrt of
all moral and thoughtful men.
A bill is before the Massachusetts
legislature for the repeal of the old
law which denies a person the right of
damages for injuries sustained through the neg

case the injuries be received while traveling on

the ki d was decide-.! adversely to aa injured
party, who was held to be traveling on Sunday
when walking to church. The whole line of old
b'ue l'tws are strong enough of brimstone to be
torn out of the statutes en masse.
'The people of the quiet town of Worcester »
Mass., were quite put out of the even tenor of j
their way, by the declaration on a recent dun
day, fro S3 the Unitarian pulpit by Leona' d !
Woolsey Bacon, that he considered Jacob a i
hypocrite and a sneak, and Esau, by nature, j
much the better man of the two, and Rebecca a
designing scheming woman. Whatever may be
thought of such criticism by certain sects it has
one useful effect, to incline people to do more of
their own thinking, a matter fallen deplorably
into disuses upon such subjects.

This short biography has for its author
ity the recently pnblished "Life of Luther,'
by Prof, von Julius Kostlin. That
book is accepted as th9 au
thoritative biography of the greatreformer
and contains much new material concern
ing his character and work.
This little volume presents Luther to us
not only as the antagonist of the Roman
ist ohuroh and her popes, of kings and
princes, but as a child, as a man in hie
home with his family and friends. In fol
lowing him through his stormy and event
ful oareer, the reader is impressed by the
strength and wisdom which characterize
all his actions. He was only t peasart's
son, yet the best and truest men of the
time recognizing him to be the wisest of
them all, followed his lead.
Luther's memory after four centuries has
become like his essential nature "grave,
tender, majestic" The aim of this book
isthusgived by its authur: "That Eng
lish readers may have before them in a
comprehensive form the chief features of
Luther's actions and character."

London, Feb. 10.—Zobehr Pasha, who is
now at Cairo, has been questioned regard
iagtheBafety of Gen. Gordon. He says
that no friend of his will molest the pas
sage of Gen. Gordon, to Khartoum, not
withstanding the fact that Gen. Gordon
during his former regime put Zobehr's
son to death. The government at Cairo
contradicts the report that Gen. Gordon
carries with him a large sum of gold. He
has only bills, a part of whioh are in
Khartoum. He left £400,000 in specie at
Assouan and the rest of the gold, amount
ing to £800,000, has not yet been forward
ed from Cairo.
After a conference between Nubar
Pasha, Sir Evelyn Baring, the British min
ister and general, and Sir Evelyn Wood,
Sir Evelyn Baring sent recommendations
to the home government to prepare to dis
patch a strong contingent of troops to
optrate from Sutkim for the relief of
Khartoum. Minister Baring reports that
the reinforcements of marines now on the
way to Admiral Hewitt will be barely suf
ficient to hold Suakim against the
rebels. Admiral Hewitt has himself
telegraphed to the admiralty that he can
guaranted the dc-fence of the Island and
city of Suakin when reinforoed by 700
men. In that event he will clear the town
of all E^y^tian troops, whose thorough un
reliability at the critical moment has been
abundantly proved by recent events. These
and othtr advices are oausing the govern
ment to reconsider the policy, previoosly
decided upon, to confine operations to the
Red sea aud immtdiateooast region**. The
ministers here are discussing the advisabil
ity of adopting a more liberal ooarae of
action and of greatly extending sphere
of their warhka operations.
They have about c me to
the conclusion to dispatoh a pioked
.anglo-Indian contingent to Berber by way
of SuaKim. The proposition at the war
office here and in India indicate that the
probable strength of the expedition will be
4,000 infantry, 1.500 cavalry and eevbra:
batteries of light guns. It is now perfectly
certain that Franoe is ready to co-operate
with England in Soudon in case the
British government will consent. French
papers deny that England has
asked the co-operation of France.
The truth is that M. Wsddington,
Frenoh minister to England was first to
move in the matter. He assured the Eng
lish government of the readiness of tho
Frenoh to unite with them in a joint expe
dition. Military authorities consider ths
fall of Khartoun certain before relief oan
possibly roach th re.
The celebrated German explorer of
Africa, Dr. Behm, who is now director of
the geographical institute at Gotha,
says, in speaking of the
advices reoeived from Khartoum, that E
Mahdi himself will take no part in the
siege of Khartoun. He leaves this to
tribes on the Blue Nile,who are now in fnl
revolt. He, himself, is preparing to march
with his main forces from Kardofan to
Dongola. From there he will pass down
thy Nile valley into lower Egypt. He is
counting on a revolt of Fellaheen through
out E«ryDt, and on a general uprising of
vlahommedons all ovor the north of
Ninety-five persons comprising the
Catholic mission at Khartoun have arriv
ed at Aesovan. They assert that Mahdi 1
has eleven missionaries and a number of
sisters prisoners at El Obeid, where the
Arabs saoked the mission with muoh ill
treatment of women.

London, Feb. 9. —The absorbing politi
oal topic is the proposed vote of oeusj,-e
next Tuesday, when Sir Stafford Northooto
wiil make a motion declaring that in the
opinion of the house the recent disastrous
occurrences in Soudan are due to the vao
oilating and inconsistent policy of the
government. Meanwhiie, whips of both
parties are untiring ai.d unceasing in their
endeavors to prepare for Tuesday's divi- ;
The Irish party promise either to sup
port the government or to abstain al'o
gether from voiing. Government whips
are now calculating upon a majority of
; fifty. After the debate on the motion of i
j censure the Right Hon.fSir Henry Bonverie
i Brond will resign the office of speaker. He
: has filled this place to the eminent satis- j
| faction of both conservatives and liberals
' ever sinco February 1872, when he
I was pat forward as a government !
i candidate and elected without opposition. \
No greater proof of his popularity and im- ;
partiality as a presiding ofHoor oould have
been given than his re-election without \
opposition by conservatives when they i
oeme into power in 1874. The government
oandidate for tbo place which he leaves
vacant :s Mr. Arthur Wellesly Peel, who i
sits for Warwick. He is a youngest son of
Sir Robert Peel, the well known
minister-, and has been in parliament :
i since 1865. The tories have abondoned
I their intention of opposing hi;* election bo
I he will receive the place without opposi- }
i tion.
The Parnellites are making a rather poor
show in the house of commons, owing to
the absence of so many of the party, par- i
nell is unable co count more than twenty
two followers.
The disasters in Egypt overshadow all
other topics of discussion, even the reform !
question, so dear to the hearts of English- \
men, falls in inters»:-t. It would have had !
command if these disasters had not inter
posed, and today there is a new
ingredient added to the general
excitement in the new3 that Baker j
P*sha has been superseded in his com- '
mandand ordered to report to the govern
ment at Cairo. It was supposed here that .
attempts would have been made to aooonnt '
for Baker's defeat by accidents of war; the ■

decree of his incapacity, and a confession I
that a heavy blow has been reoeived, and
i?reat discouragement given to the Anglo- I
Egyptian movement for the recovery of >
Sondan. Here there is not muoh {
sympathy felt for Baker, putting aside
altogether the increasing unpopularity of
governmental campaign, his personal
reoord does not reoommend him to favor.
That railway carriage outrage is still
remembered to his great discredit, and
though the patronage of the Prince of
Wales has. shielded him to some extent,
and bridged his term of imprisonment, it
could not succeed in rehabilitating one

guilty of an indecent assault on weak
Caibo, Feb. 10. —The khedive has ap
pointed the British admiral, Hewitt, com
mander at Suakim, at the request of the

oners has entered Suikal. The first brig
1 ade of the Egyptian battalions, oommand
1 ed by English officers, proceeds to the first
: cataract of the Nile as soon as quarters are '
j ready. The movement is made on account
• of the threatening attitude of Bedouins
between Kench and the Egyptian coast of |
the Red Sea. The report that General
Gordon had arrived at Berber is prema
ture. The report arose from a telegram
from Berber, figned by Gordon and for
warded in advance by fast oamels. It is j
expeoted he will arrive at Berber on Tues- '
day. The Arabs which Gordon met after
j leaving Koroeko. are friendly. The Dlemu
i of Khas.oum, have sent messengers to

pany him the remainded of his journey, in
order to show the populace that the ',
Moslems a>*e not inimioal to Gordon's j
mission: Gordon expects to reaoh Khar

eminent, in advising Gordon of Baker ,
Pasha's recent defeat, leaves him full I
power to exaoaate or retain Khartoun, as
he thinks fit.

Wheeling, W. Va, Feb. 1(\—The river
has receded more slowly than wr.s expected,
and part of the city and country above and
below is still auder water, though the in
habited portion for the most part,;? for^akf n
by the waters. The disaDPearanc* of the
water only reveals the extent of the rav
aue* of the flood, Rnd the sight exposed to
th9 eye to-day is indeed disheartening.
Huge rocks, board piles, trees, drift wo.d
and Bmall shant'ie* coyer parts of maoy
streets, and hundreds of lat'-e houses ai.d
barns aro gathered at po-.ut,- where the
surface of the water was obstructed by
trees. Fifty honses are jammed open,
and against each other, at the south .ud
of the city, and the Baltimore & Ohio
track, between here and BenwoooX
was covered with buildings and diift,
which were polled to pirce* by enpin»?s to
clear the traok. The first mail sinoe Wed
nesday, four tons, has arrived, and boats
and a few rains on the roads least dam-
Hged, have opened communication with
the outside world. Lvery blanket in ths
oity has been distributed to the homeless
sudeters, who had a ureat scarcity of bed
■jlothes. The oonu-ry people, on both
-ides of the river, are doing their utmost
fo supply the needy with provisions.
Wagons loaded with provisions are arriv
ing here, and at B.nwor.d, Bell-tire, Bridge
port and Martin's Ferry all day, from
points as far back as twenty miles. Prob
ibly 20,000 people have to be feu and

are moving back to thsir houses and the
oene to-day was a busy one. Everywhere
t e streets are being washed and disinfect
ed, to prevent any bad efftiot on the health,
vlany kind offers of aid are received, but
with so many depending upon the relief
committee, the ontlook for the future is
. ioomy. Many oases of premature con
finement of women are reported, but no
j aeaths from this oause yet. A bottle was
ound to day with thi names of four
j young ladies, said to be drowning at the
I time the card was written. As none of
the names are on the direotory and no
j ->ody knows the persons, it is believed
j to have been a hoax from some point up
; tho river. The card ooutained the words:
i 'Farewell friends," >-nd the names of
'Annie Clark, Mollie S-sage, Minnie Hawk
andBernishRabet." The Mascms system
atized the work of aiding in relief. A
roll of all the Mhsohs is pnpared aid
those, not themselvts suffering, will be
i. died upon for aid. The Odd Fellows and
other secret orders are also working. It
reported that some of the sulsrers on the
