"the sale of lnto.icatiu llqunis is tlio

this llicoiy that our piohibilory l.uvshao
been framed ; and the ieaon why the-e
laws liae not la en innro successful in tliclr
operation is because this principal Is an cr
loiicous one. The tiallle in iiiloxicatln
llipiors is nol the main caue ol'lhe dllli

the sali' of iiitrilcalin; liquors can only op
erate Incidentally for the snppn'ssion of
ilriinkeiiness; it cannot destroy it. The leal
cnuse of Iho dlflleulty lies deeper. As was
leiuaiked by one ol'lhe speakeisat thelale

OM'cutal as to furnish protection to the In
nocent nml shield society, so fir as may be,
from this dreadful sennrso; but do not ex
pect that the law will do more than Its part.
It Is the perveiled appetite and wrung edu

been loned to the Vermont Central on
terms that would ply the diWdonds 011 Iho
piefcried stock, nnd dividends on the com
mon stock, for tlio term of twenty years,
that would average "ij per cent, llul this
fair prospect was suddenly and rudely
blackened by tlio iinnouiicemcnl nl the mi
ll tritl meeting, this week, that the compa
ny owes one million ami n quaitcr dollars
that nobody cer Irani anything about be
fore, and the lioped-lor dividends had lo
be srrlp instead of cash. Tills Indebted

the trustee 1 of the second ninitgage bond

Maicli, tliey had not been called on to ic

honest, wo sincerely trust Hint this way of
managing 11 trust w III not come Into gen
eral vogue. If it di.es, stockholders inisjr
poratlons will have a harder time than they
do now . It is partly their ow 11 fault, to be
sure, in not insisting that the men Ihcy
honor witli otllce shall do tlio work the
olllce calls for, but the chief blame is to be
awarded lo llio man who wltl accept a trust
knowing that ho cannot perform Its duties.

The most leinaikalile Incident of the
moment In this country is Hie arrival and
Hie speeches ol llio .Japanese embassadors.
It is, howeer, no "Tommy" alfalr; and It
is with a consciousness tlia' wo aio not per
haps quite perfcitln political wisdom that
an American cllien may lellecl that Unv
ernnr Ilo, who made the icccnt striking
spec cli I11 Sail I-'ranebeo, is not, under our
laws, capable of uatumll.alinu It lias be
come so much our habit I insider Asial-
icsns barbaiians lli.it when tiic lliirltuganie
embassy was feasted in Now York 11 was
scircely possible lor some of Hie chief ora
tors upon our side to restrain a tone of hu
morous sarcasm ; and llicre was a very
general popular leelliigthnt the yellow for
eign cis Willi almond eyes hadasliltleln
common with sensible American citizens
as If Ihey bad Just stepped nil' die dinner
plnlos upon which their poilialts wcie
palmed. Indeed, lo call any tiling Chinese
Is to brand llasliopelesslyoiitlandlsli ; and
lliere are a great many Aineilcaiis who
will lie very apt lo reganl our Japanese
visitors as if they were Laplanders or Ks-
It will lie 11 most interesting icvelatlon,
that of tho piogress of Hie reform of Japa
nese society. In the speech nf (jovernor
ItoatS.in rrancisco he said that few hut
native Japanese knew any tiling of the In
ternal condition of llio ('(iiintry j while by
reading, hearing, and observation in for
eign lands, (ho Japanese tire anxious, lie
siys, t o icach Hie highest point of civiliza
tion, and to tiiis end ihey Iiaveadopted the
military, uaa1, scienlillc, and educational
iiistllutlonsof Iho most enlightened lands.
Hut with the Instinct or Hie Orient, Hie
mother of thought ami of religions, the
tiovoinor docs not exnggerat" the import
ance of material advantages. The mental
Improvement of the country has been far
greater than the nialcilal although the ma
terial opened the way. Despotic sover
eigns had held Hie peop'e in ignor.inco for
ages. With Improved material nihautaues
oil 1110 tlio consciousness of rights which
had been long denied. Within a year Hie
feudal system of many centuiles lias been
entirely abolished, w ithoiit a shot or a dlop
of blood. What country In tho Middle
Ages, proudly asks the orator, broke down
Us feudil system without war?
lie Ihcii ndds what Is perhaps the most
rcnnirknble statcuiciil of all, that even Ja
pan already sees what the Western nations
of llio highest civ III..1H011 see so slowly,
Hint tho welliuo of tho country ilepends
very much upon tho education of women.
Already Japanese glrU "our maidens,"
as the lioveruor calls tlieui are coming In
American schools. The full force of this
fact will nppcar only to Ihoso who know
what the traditional feeling In rcgjtil to
women has alwjiys be-cn In China and Ja
pan. The embassy has comn to observe
more closely the details nod developments
of our government and inventive genius
nud cuteiprlse, and In gather every kind of
valuable suggeslloii for Japan, Then, says
the orator, "Ihn red disk In the centre of
our national Hag shall 110 longer appear
like n wafer over n sealed empire, but
henceforth bo in fact what it Is Intended lo
bo tlio nolilo emblem of tlio ilslng sun,
moving onward and forward amlil-t the
enlightened nations ol Hie world."
There has been an excliangoof courteous
messages between Iho national and local
auliinrllies and the Japanese embassadors,
and Congress has appropriated fitly thous
and dollars for their ciileitaiiiment Willie
In . Washington. Iloth tho good feeling

and Iho advantages lo our manufacture

sugar costs four timet ns much ns llielr

prlnelp.il snnioos of this Inillsponsahlo suh

maples (1 per cent.)
The dlfVcront varieties of sugar were then
dcsoilhcd and their cuiious relations In
gum, starch nnd wood pointed out. T110
method or m iking grapo sugar as n chemi
cal product was explained, nnd Iho possl
billty of producing cano sugar In tlio la
boratory alllrmed. This subject is now a
prize problem of tlm French Academy.
The history of sugar was briefly given
from tho limn when II was employed in
medicine under tho nanio of Indian Salt.
Tlio Moors brought sugar calm intoSpdii
111 1711, nud the Sp.inlaids cairled It to St.
Domingo In tlio year 1500. The sugar Im
ported inlo Ureal Hrltalu, In 1700, was 10,
(iJ Ions, ami in lb70, 600,0011 Inns. Sugar
from beets was first obtained by 11 Piiislan
chemist in 1717, and shown to lie Identical
In nil rcspccls witli that from the cane.
I.iltle iiltciillon wns given lo tho fact until
nboul Iheycnr lMjn, when another Prussian,
Ach.iid, stalled 11 small factory under Hie
auspices of Hie government lit Silesia. He
published an Interesting pamphlet on tho
matter and predicted ultimate success, but
nothing more was douo in (lermany for
many years. Napoleon 1st, hovvover, of
feicd a pilzo of one million francs for an
economical method nf making sugar from
plants grow 11 In Prance. In Mil, a process
was devised by Chnptal which enabled hint
to produce sugar from the beet at thirty
cents per pound. As colonial sugar then
cost moie than one dollar si pound, Iho re
sult was qiil.e satisfactory and the business
received a great Impetus. In 1K71, Fiance
pindiiccd 1111,000 tons of licet sugar.it a cost
of about four cents per pound. The cash
value of beet pioducts in France last year
was titty millions nf dollars, and those dis
tricts which produce lite sugar, produce
also mm e bread and be"f than any oliicrs,
nnd vastly more than they did before Iho
lnliodiiction of (ids Industry.
Thchistoiyof tills Industry lu the vari
ous countries of Ihiropo and In Iho United
.States was given, and all tlio so-called fnil
nieswcie accounted for. Tlio conclusion
was that It was a most flourishing business
in all placet where '.airly tested ; that It
was pinfilttble to tho sugar lnaiinfactiircr,
10 the distiller, to the laud owner nnd to
Hie laboier, and last lint not least, to tho
government, which iceelved, in IS70 In
France, !-Iii1(it'u1oon lev Mum from the taxes
