m SIKKCH IN BALTIMORE.
Ilon. W. J. Brjaa dtlivefed an id

.lanuary iJOth, upon the political
questions of the day to an atulienct
which filkd the Music Hall, the
biggest auditorium in the city, and
which greeted him and liis retnarkt
with the greatest cnthusiusm.
The meetitig was held under UaC
auspices of the Maryland Demoeraiir
Associatiou, one of the Free BilffI
wings of the Democratic parly of Um
state, and was not encouraged in any
manner by tlie regular lVinoeratie
oriranization. In fact the latter held
strictly aloof frotn any participatiun
in the allair. Not one of the IK-mo
eratic ieaders appeare?T on the plat
form, and an offer of stagc tickets was
politely declincd by the priucipal
members of the Democratic BteU
With the party who OMM from
Washington witli Mr. lkyan were
Senator Tillman, of South Carolina;
Congressmen Sulzer, of Kew Vork;
Richurdson, of Tennessee; Jones, of
Yirgiuin;and DeArmond.of Missoun.
Mr. liryan said in part:
"The Declarationof ludependeuce
was ouce a highly respected docu
ment: it is under a cloud just now,
but I have conlidence that in a few
months the clouds will be rolled by
and that old document will shine
with ail itsfonner brightness. That
fundaiuental principle is that all
men arc created equal.
"I do not mean to say that all men
arecreated oqual in physical atrength;
I do not mcun to eay that all men are
created equal iu mental ability, or iu
moral worth, or that under any just
form of gOYernment a man will be
equal in capacity for enjoyment, or in
the enjoymeut that we have. What
I mean to say ia this:
"That whenevergovernment comes
into contact with the citizen, when
ever the citizen touches the govern
ment, then all must staud equal
before the law, and there must be
no high, no low, no rich, uo poor;
that government must be administer
ed according to the maxini of Jeffer
aon: Equal rights to all and special
privileges to none.
"I am going to ask the llepubli
cans here to thiuk for a little while
when they go home of the income tax
aud aee if it is not in liLe with that
doctrine of equal rights to all and
special privileges to none.
"When the Spanish war broke out
we had to have more t-ixes, and the
Republican party looked around for
any old thing to put a stamp on, and
you run acrosa the atamp taxes all
the time. Every time 1 send a tele
gram I have to pay the regular rale
and in addition thereto one cent is
added for the beneficial assimilation
of the Filipino.
"Why is it that the man who somls
the te'.egram has to pay the Uu?
Because the telegraph company says
ao, and why waa the law so made that
the telegraph company could shift
the burden on to the man who aencls
the telegrams? Because the tele?
graph companiea have more influence
with the Kepublican party thau all
the poor Republicans who U8e the
"In an hour of peril thi8 Govern?

In additiou to tittM there were 80
eompanies of State troops, or resi-r\i-s.
with an enrollment of 4,914. The
historian says there were 19 additional
reginieuts of reserves not ckrried on
the rolls, and adds: "Making the
tnoderate estiniate that the truth of
history warrants, that 5 per cent. of
Uonfederate and ^;> pet eent.of State
troops are not carrrkd on the rolls,
it further appears that i>.)uth t'arolina

The historian remarks that the
manner in which ihe State hohling
the "cradle of secession" sto;>d by
her pledgea of 18G0 is exeniplified
when the fact is known that in 1800
the voting population was 00,000.

Diathl in battle, from wounds and

ords show, wereas follows: Infantry.
17,1) 18; cavalry, 1,4 07; artillery, 716
?total, 20,101. But the historian
tinds that 20 infantry companus
tnakf no report of "died in battle or
from woniuU;" 43 no report of "diid
from dist-ast;" 1?>7 no report of 4<died
in prison," and 4."> no report of
"wonnded." The saino incomplete
ness appears in the artillery report.
Appiying the averages to those com
mands from which there are no re
port.8, he fmds that the infantry losa
was 21,140; cavalry, 1,739; artillery
1,868. lle adds: "Making the 'total
effective' in each arm of the service
tlu' basis of percentage, the result
wouid be: Infantry loss, 52.7 per
cent.; cavalry, 20.7; artillery, 17 ptt
cent. That i8, the casualities in war
were more than one-half of the total
effedive i:ifanlry, mor<? than one iif th
of the cavalry and tnore than one
sixth of the artillery."
Where Wives Are Luxuries.
Wives in Tanganylka, Africa, are
con8idered a luxury, and even in Zu
luland they cost from $150 to $800,
but on the Tanganylka plateau one
can be had for iive or aix goats.
One goat equals II to 20 ccnts,
therefore, one wife equals $1.20.
THE LATEST AMAZONS.

Om of the nicniberB of the Ama
NM of London, an organization
<;on'posed of women at least 8ix feet
t..!!, nmarked the other day that if
the ccnucg century is to be given
over to Bxilhar&MD, as many gloomily
pndict, it is i.ot haid to imagine
those of their members who are
stroiig and inettleeome forming retri
tiHiits, and volunteering for guard
duty or other garrison service.
The idea of women warriorg is as
olt] as the oldest epic. They must
ha\e had the same actual existence
to prehiatoric Greece, as traditions
of tben are found in all ancient art,
as well as in the writings of llomor.
Ilerculcs is said to have met them,
and to havecarried away the jeweled
girdleof their slain queen.llyppolyte,
which trophy had beeu a gift of the
I?egend relate8 that the Grecian
/Lmaaoot, having emancipated thein
selws from masculine rr.le, formed
an ind.pcndent colony on the uorth
eabt ooasft of the Ulack Sea. Their
organiztitioi: waspurely military, and
daily drill was practiced. They be

hlttorj they were overcome and bom

azon captain gave the signal, and
they fefl opoa the Grecians and aJoii

Ignorant of naval tactics, they
were unable to return to their own
aborea, but drifted to the land of the
Scythiaus. They lamhd and over

chanted by the strange mvaders and
immediately proposed a truce and
According to Herodotus, the
couitsbip was somewhat delayed bv
the inability of the Scythians to
speak the language of the Amazons.
The difliculty was overcome by the
quicker witted womeu, who soon
?Mttftd the Scythian tongue, or
cnongh of it, at any rate, to accept
tlie wholesale proposals on conditiou
that l!uy were not to do weavmg,
cookmgor other household dutied.
The nien consented to the conditions
and lived tliereafter under subjection
to the feminine rule.
Tiic Ainazon girls were not per?
mitted to tnarry until they had slain
chemics iu battle and had brought
back tropliies of victory. Mother
hood was KOtrtod as an honor to be
bestowed on those who especially
distinguislnd tlieniselTes. Only fe
male children as a rule were reared.
The Amazons subdued the greater
part of Asia Miuor, and built a uuni
ber of famoiis towns, amoug them
Snivrna, RpboNaf, Magnesia, and
'1 In tniacyra. After opposing Priam
of Troy for many years, they joined
his forces in the Trojan war against

In the early part of theeighteenth
cvniury the Kingof Dahomey found
liis kingdom almost depletedof light
ing men, and, being a man of re
source, he resolved to see what traiu
ing and discipline would do for the
euperfluous women of the country?
wotnen of tnuscle and eudura'ice and
In 1728 the lirst women regiment8
were formed. Their duties at tirst
were more or lesa inenial, but in time
they developed such superior fighting
qualities that they became the flower
of the Dahomeyan army. Every
three years the young girls were re
quired to appear hefore royalty, who
selected the likeliest to recruit hia
r< i^iments. A few of them the King
marned, and they held a high place
in the army. Others were married
to inale sol.liers, but the majority
trere wedded to the fetich, and re
maitu-d celibates on paiu of death.
They were divided into three ranks:
The elephant hunti?ases, the blun
derb^l women, and the razor women,
whose object waa to pursue and
decapitnle the leader of the opposing
foroea. They wore uniforms of blue
and white striped cotton, withshort,
Like their Grecian sisters, they
reaivd only the female children, the
males bting handed over to foster
mothera. A large percentage of the
women being celibates, and numbers
pcrishing in battle, a falling off in
native population soon became ap
pareut. In 1862 the Amazon troops
numbered leas than three thousaud,
and after the battle of Abeokutathej
piaetically ceased to exist.? fhm

(ireat Rritain's pride has been
stirred. Germany is laughing at her
and other natious are eneering at

But of far greater moment, the
very existence of the Empire is at
htake. Qreat Britain must tight this
