Altgeld's speech to the Chi cago workingmen oa LnU.r IHj was especially commendable because it bwld ao eacouragrment to the com. ataaiatie Idea thea Gadiag expren sioa in a demand for large appmpria tloaa by the state for the construction of aanecessanr public works. The Kepnblie took occasion to commend tbe speech oa that line. It baa since area ao reason to change its opinion. Speaker la attendance at the con. eation of tbe Illinois State Labor r'ederaUoB la session at lialesbnrg. hafe. or pretend to bare, another opinion. At that meeting Gat. Alt geld was denounced for hi attitude of resistance to a special legislative session and large appropriations to furnish employment to idle labor. Some of tbe siieakers, as is usual in sMca assemblies, grew heated and ueanaciatory in their discussion of tbe ease. The question involved is not one f morals or of sentiment, but one of law. If tbe governor of Illinois should become a party to such appro priations be would le guilty of a violation of bis oath of office. If a necessity has ever existed in Illinois lor state assistance of unemployed workman it arose in the northern coal fields during the long lockout of la, tiovrrnor Fifer did not call the assembly in extra session and recommend appropriations of public aaonrys to meet me emergency. II "- f-oiuinission. wtin tne secre tary of his hoard of public charities at the head of it. to investigate an report as to the cause of the lock oat. This commission and its work were denounced by tbe miners in un measured terms. Such a prominent ft-If . a 1 ... rvpaoiicaa lauor leaner as William Scaife of (irnndy countr Informed tbe Republic that tbe commission was a fraud, both as to it methods aad its conclusions. Others of the labor leader at that time and in that section condemned the open viola tioa by tbe mine nuerators of the slate law prohibitingthe employment of armed Itakerton forces. All that ov. Fifer was called upon to do at that time was to ohev the law himself and see that others obeyed it. He fell short of the exer. - ciso of his just powers in allowing too employment ot nakerton mer reaarie in the coal fields, and be exceeded his just powers in sending aa inquisitorial commission there to git tbe operators a hearinir to the exclusion, if not to the prejudice, of tow itprraiives. II is tbe function of an executive both to observe awl enforce tbe laws. It Is no more than-tbarin anv well- regulated legislative government.

If we quit heraldry for fact and goby the testimony of travelers and hunters, it is very donhtfnl whether the lion de serve his uinirni¢ reputation.

It is not the highest form of plants that always produce the creatpst effect in this way. Some of tbe most striking scenes upon the earth owe their charac teristic features to mosses aud lichens. Tbe famous "crimson cliffs" of Green land, which extend for miles northward from Cape York, derive their splendid c;)lor from the growth of red lichen wnicu covers their laces. The cliffs rise Is-tweeu l.tOO and 2,000 feet straight from the water's edge, and being composed of gray granite their aspect wouia lie entirely rtiilereut from what it is bat for tlie presence of the iicnen.

The question. Who are the Basques? that mysterious people who give their name to the bay of Biscay, is always cropping up. aud Professor von der G beieuti has recently endeavored to show that tbe Basque language belongs to the African Berber family of speech for ex ample, the Kahyle and Tatireg. His ev idence, however, only amounts o a few culture words being identical in the Basque aud Berber languages aud cer tain analogies in the laws of phonetic change. Moreover, lie assumes that the Basques and Iberians were tbe same peo ple. But. as Canou Isaac Taylor points out. the Iberian tongue, according to our highest authorities, was different from tbe Basque, and the French Basques are a dinereiit race from the Siianish Basques, who are a feeliler people of tlie ineruin type, if we assume that the Basques conquered the Iberians, we can account for the resemblances noticed by Professor vou der Galw-letitz. liecause the Iliertiius of Berber oritfiu in aconir- ing tlie langnaie of their conqueror would retain their own plioneti;- ten dency and also some cnlrure words in both languages. As Cation Taylor re marks, we may still lielieve that the Basque btngnaue is allied to tlie Ural- Altaic type. London Ulolie. tienervoa. Ilaitley Item is a very generous niau.
