cordial reception on his return by the

Mr. Unyanl had many complimentary
things to say about England. Ho had
received unbounded courtesy atid kind
ness there und had everywhere found
that the name of an American was re
ceived with a. degree of ftivor ex < ended
to no other people. Ills observation ,
Mr. Dayard said , had led him to feel
great respect for the temper of the
Kngllsh people and their government ,
lie found there a great respect for
law. not simply among the accomplished
men who deliver thulr Judgments upon
the Intricate cases of property and per
sonal rights In their courts of justice.
but among the humbler class of Ihose
other olllclals who mingle wltli Hie body
of the people al large. There Is n con
sideration by tbe olllcials for the feel
ings of the people : there Is an obedience
by the people to the spirit of law Incar
nated In the humbler olllclals.
By way of Illustration .Mr. Ilaynrd
said tliut during his residence of n year
and a half In Knglnnd , most of the
lime In the city of London , he hail never
seen si policeman with a baton or stick
In his hand ; he hail never seen n blow
siriH'k by one. or heard violent lan
guage , or even seen a violent gesture
friiiii a policeman , Yet the authority
of law as represented by these olllcluls
N fully respected by the people. Mr.
I'.nyard albo found that a strong veiiera-
tin- principle pervades tin ; Kngllsh pee
ple. Me had observed n high degree
of moral feeling among them , strong
mother- ties , and the roots of respect
ability deeply planted. "I have been
n long lime there. " said the ambassador ,
"ami 1 do not remember that I have
lii'iiril any oath. I have been a long
lime Ihere and I do not remember , I
inn sure , tlint I ever heard at any outer-
Itilnuient , In the height of jest , a story
I hat a man would object to telling to
his wife , his sister or Ills daughter. "
or course It is to be borne In mind
that Mr. llnyaird's associations are alto-
Kcilicr with the better class of the Kng-
Hsli people and that his observation
Is for the most part restricted to the
hiiblls and the life of that element.
II need hardly be saltl that then ? Is a
very vonsidorable element of the popula
tion of Crcat Britain that has no re-
* | icct for law and that anybody who

supply. This Is the ca e In every coun
try and the L'nitod Kingdom has its
full share.
Hill none the less the tribute of Mr.
I la yard to the Kngllsh people Is uiiiuies-
ilonably merited and It Is one which the
American people may give attention to
wlih prolit to themselves. Might they
not advantageously on in late the. exam
ple of Englishmen in the matter of re
spect for law , and is there not oppor
tunity for Improvement on the part of
tlmso charged with the execution of the
laws in showing greater consideration
lo" the feelings of the peopled So far
us the moral life of the American people
is concerned it will undoubtedly com
pare favorably with that of the Kngllsh
people , but it ih questionable whether
mil1 domestic life generally Is quite up
to the ICngllsh standard thai Is. as to
th ( > respect shown for parents by chil
dren and the closeness of the ties be
tween children of the same family.
There Is probably substantial ground
for the claim Unit In the best home life
of Knghmd there Is more nffoctUiu and
Interest than is commonly found in this
country. Whatever feeling of prejudice
the American people may entertain to
ward Knghind It must be confessed
that we may learn something from the-
Kngllsh people in the matter of a profounder -
founder respect for Law , In n higher re-
gnrd for family relations and the con
servation of the home , which Is the
foundation of the state , and jn the cul
tivation of a truer and heartier hospi
tality. That we shall not always be
behind the "mother country" lu nny of
tli"se respects can safely be predicted.

People who admired the beautiful
miniature oC the Tnlted States treasury
building made out of Columbian sou
venir silver coins at the World's fair
must be Interested in the hlMory of
lids disastrous souvenir venture. The
Idea of the souvenir coins , like that of
tlie souvenir postage stamps and the
souvenir admission tickets , and the sou
venirs of this , that and the other , was
probably advanced by u dozen different
persons at various times as a money
making enterprise. It was assiduously
maintained that the people would be
ready to tuke all the Columbian coins
they could get at not less than twice
I heir face value , and that the coins
would never get Into circulation by very
reason of the demand for them as me
mentoes of the great fair. Finally , In
order that the prolit might Inure solely
to the exposition company. It was made
a condition of the last congressional ap
propriation of ? r. , < X)0,000 ) that the money
should bo delivered In Columbian .sou
venir coins of the half dollar denomina
tion. The management counted that
by this means ( lie $5,000,0(10 ( subsidy
would really give tlie exposition treas
ury a sum not less than twice that
liguro. Tlie Columbian coins were , In
the beginning , disposed of to the highest
bidders , a fabulous price being paid for
the very llrst one Issued to a manufac
turing concern that wished to use It
for advertising purposes.
When the fair closed , notwithstanding
the persistent peddling of the coins
.among visitors In Chicago and their sale
as novelties In the shops In all the leadIng -
Ing cities of the country , the exposition
company found Il.lJOO.OOO of the total
coinage remaining on Its bunds. These
coins had been sold In no case at less
than $1 apiece. The surplus , however ,
could be disposed of only by reducing
the price , but Mich a reiliicthm would
un < | UOHtloimbly depreciate ( he value of
those then outstanding and would be
manifestly unfair to purchasers nt the
higher price. To throw n.OOO.OOO xou-
venlr coins Into circulation would , It
was expected , Immediately bring all of
.them . down to the level of ordinary
currency. To prevent this Secretary
Carlisle was Importuned to tvcoln the
unsold supply , but he declined on ac
count of the uniiecocNary expense of
minting. Several attempts were made to
organl/.e syndicates ) ( o relieve the
treasury of Us holding , but In vain , and
Ilimlly , about ten days ago , the order
was given to regard tlie souvenir coins
as casli in ( lie treasury and' to Issue
them at their face value In exchange
for gold. Hy llitis restricting the Issue
the treasury hopes to add a little to Its
gold biihinco and nt the same time en
courage the use of the coins l y mer
chants nml others for premiums to cus
tomers who will keep thorn out of gen
eral circulation. Kvon under these reg
ulations the withdrawals have not yet
been very _ heuvy. Should another
World's fair be held In the United
States It Is safe to assert that care will
be taken not ( o repeat this disappoint

There will always be much contro
versy among students ns to the exact
position which .Tames Anthony Fronde

Ing him with Cilhlmn. Orote. Mueaiilny.

Kngllsh writers of history. The ques
tion was raised , with some , acrimony
too. ( inly ii little more tliiiu a year ago.
when Mr. Fronde was proposed as the
successor to Prof. Freeman In the his
torian's chair at tlie greatest of Kng
llsh universities. Such opposition was
manifested that the place was allowed
to go ( o another.

The mule members of the house
which for nearly . " 00 years have ruled
Uttssia were almost without exception
large and strong men , but they have
not. been long-lived. The piesent czar ,
whose death is imminent , is not yet 50
years old and is a giant In stature , hav
ing been , until his health began to fall ,
one of ( lie most powerful men , physi
cally. In the world. It Is said that
probably no man could have been found
in till Kiirupe who took us little exor
cise and had devoted as little attention
to the development of his muscular
strength as did Alexander III. , who
could surpass some of the feats of
strength with which he was wont at
times to amuse himself : uul his inti
mates. It has been stated that he llrst
began to fear that his health was giv
ing way when he found that he could
no longer break n rouble , n silver coin
iiliouh the slxe of a half dollar , in two
with his thumb and lingers.
Vet ( Ids great strength bus suc
cumbed to n complication of disorders ,
duo , It Is believed , to a taint In the blood
of the house of Koiminoil's , not now for
the first time In evidence. The history
of this house is that at (50 ( years of age
or earlier most of Its male members
have drift I'd toward melancholy and
decay , and not many of them have sur
vived that age. Some have fallen vic
tims to violence -twid others have died
suddenly of disease , nearly all having
been stricken at a time of life when
men should be nt almost their best
ostnlo. There seems , indeed , to be a
talut in the blood of the family , so
lirmly rooted that lutermiu'riages with
some of the most virile houses in Ku-
rope could not eradicate It. By numer
ous alliances with ( icrman families the
Romanoffs have become almost as Ger
man in blond as the Ilohen/.olierns
themselves. Indeed , it lias been said
that they are Teutons rather than
Slavs , yet the royal family of < ! ernnuiy
has been far superior In vitality to that
of Kussia. The llrst ruler of united
( iermany , tlie old kaiser , hud no equal
In physical vitality among the sovereigns
eigns of the house of Homanoff.
Doubtless the explanation Is to be
found in the contrast between the vir
tues of the Hohenzollerns and the li
censes which the Itomnnoffs have al
lowed themselves. "The private vices , "
says a writer , "which have made some of
the sovereigns of Ku&shi Infamous may
yet be bearing fruit , and It Is generally
believed that the czars have not at nny
time pretended ID approach the plane of
conduct which has been reached by
some of the latest and most famous of
the Herman sovereigns. " This does not
apply to Alexander III. , whose private
life has been exemplary , but he has not
been able to escape the consequences
of the vices of his ancestors. ,

Xn plan for n bank currency proposed
lu 11 long Hme has received so much nt-
tentlon and favorable comment ns the
one endorsed by the national conven
tion of bankers recently In session nt
Baltimore. This shows how strong and
general is the conviction that some radi
cal change Is needed In the system of
bank circulation , with particular refer
ence to providing an elastic currency
the volume of which can bo readily ad
justed to all conditions of trade. With
all that may be said in commendation
of the national banking system , admit
tedly the best this country has had , it
in still a fact that It does not supply
an elastic circulation , and It cannot do
HO while the bond security principle
upon which It rests Is ndhered to. Und
the proposal to allow the national bunks
to Issue notes to tlie par value of tlie
bonds deposited to secure circulation
been adopted there might be less rea
son for complaint , since in that case the
banks would probably have been ills-
posed to enlarge vlielr circulation to
meet Inrrcnscrt ilcnmmta , but tinder
present conditions they win hardly be
ox peeled to do o , although In limes of
exigency tlil < yiiavo not betm altogether
unmindful of their duty to the business
public In tls tcollect.
Hut In nny event banking on govern
ment boml. cannot be con tinned many
years longer , nml It Is therefore timely
to consider what shall be done to re
place HIP pffesenl. system wllli one
equally soimfl nml'safe. The llnltlmntv
plan does not contemplate any Interference -
once with the national bunking system ,
but simply to .supplement It , and if It
should be nd p\ed \ and found to operate
satisfactorily .we shall have a plan that
will in time embrace tlie entire bunk
ing system of the country. T'lidoubtedly
If this plan should work well the na
tional banks would rapidly adopt It , so
that long before the time when there
will be no government bonds available
as security for circulation there would
be a reorganization of the bunking sys
tem of ( he country. Heferonce him
heretofore been made to the details of
the Itnltlmore plnn , and so Car as we
have observed the comments made on
It there Is no serious objection < o It
anywhere , it being an Interesting fact
that It Is as heartily approved by the
southern bankers generally as by those
of the oast. The only criticism we have
noted is that the phtu does not make
adequate provision for the protection of
the depositor , and perhaps Ibis Is a A'nlld
objection to it. but It Is one that may
easily be removed.
It Is quite Impossible to say with any
degree of certainty how the plan will
1)0 regarded In congress. It Is antici
pated that it will encounter the opposi
tion of the free silver lieu and It Is also
probable that it will be opposed by the
advocates of Hie repeal of the tax on
bunk Issues. If II should have this
opposition its chances of adoption will ,
of com e , be small.
An event interesting to old soldiers
everywhere will be the unveiling next
Wednesday , lu Philadelphia , of n
statue of ( loneral ( Jeorge IV McClellali ,
Preparations have been made for a
demonstration that will doubtless be
memorable. President Cleveland and
his cabinet are expected to be present ,
governors ofstnt.es and others prominent
lu public affairs will attend , and there
will be a large military display. Cure
lias been taken lo avoid giving the oc
casion tin- slightest political chnracK'f ,
so ( lint all political clubs hnvo been re
fused permission to niarrh in the pro
cession , and no yrganlzatlon , whatever
Its national slgnllicance. will be per
mitted to display.'any but the American
ling. Of course a large attendance of
war veterans Is o'xpeeted. The erection
of this memorial to one of tlie most dis
tinguished soldiers In the civil war at
tests the love and admiration In which
he was hoh1by ! ; the brave men who
fought , under Uitu. Whatever place his
tory shall dually assign to ( Seorge U.

failures and shortcomings for which he
may not have been wholly responsible ,

this fall the next governor of that state
will have a term of throe years to serve.
This menus that Ids office will hold over
the presidential election In ] 8 ! ) ( ! and
nearly ten months Into the term of the
president then to be elected. The suc
cessful candidate for the governorship
this year , if raised to the presidency
two years hence , would in that case be
compelled by circumstances to resign
the Inferior ollice and penult the lieu
tenant governor to exercise the duties of
his position. The Importance of the can
didate holding second place on the ticket
in New York becomes therefore greatly
magnllled by this contingency. It but
adds to tlie complication of possibilities

cal contest In the Umpire state.

The suggestion is already being pub

tribute to the memory of the Into ( lov-

suggestion ought to be acted upon at
once by ( he patriotic people of that
state. Tiie unrt played by Oovernor

Here Is n compliment from an
source which Americans may le slow to
reciprocate. "Tnlte them as a whole , "
says the London Spectator , "the Americans
are the kindliest race on the face of the

push , their desire to be In the fr6nt rank
at all times and nil seasons , the true Amer
ican seldom falls In kindness. "

The best authorities on social science are
against compulsory arbitration , because
such means of sc'tllliiK illcputcH Is a con
tradiction of terms , for arbitration means
u peaceful settlement of ditllcultlcs. Mr.
Wolcott. chairman of the Massachusetts
Hoard of Arbitration , says : "You inleht
as well try tt > compel two men to be
friends. It won't work , for conciliation
to amount to anything must come through
the channels of reason. "

In the first two weeks In October the Im

creased 46 per cent over lust year , while the
exports decreased 10 per cent. That Is pre

That means gold exports , and alrviuly tliay
are In slKht , That was the condition ot
things under the Walker tariff , during the
existence of which this country exported
$450,000,00 * of specie to pay the balance at

the government to borrow money nt the
ruinous rate of 12 per cent Interest. AVe > are

An Iowa man who was convicted of send
ing obscene matter through the malls has
Just been sentenced to eight years' Imprison
ment at hard labor and to pay a line of
H.OOO for Ids violations of the law. The
ludgoIn sentencing the prisoner expressed
the utmost surprise ut the extent to which
the malls were being used for this purpose ,
nnd then sa'd he Intended to do what he
could to break UP the practice. The severity
of the sentence In this case will constitute a
wholesome warning. There Is no more
dastardly offense than the one named , and
If the United States mulls can be kept clear
oC It the evil may be greatly mitigated. No
punishment can be too severe for those who

General Howard believes that the- force

In saying so. Ills opinion Is certainly en

World's fair ode , has taken her mutilated
muse Into court In New York In support
of n claim for damages. It appears a New
York paper perpetrated a "beat" by publish
ing the ode In advance of delivery. The
editor ran Ids blue pencil over several lines
and stanzcs , and through force of habit ,
according to the fair poetess , destroyed much
of its facial beauty. For this heinous offense ,
she wants a poultice of coin to soothe her
muse , and the trial Is now on. A jury will
seriously consider the matter of damages
for expurgation , but there Is a probability
that the paper will be called upon to pay
a round sum for publishing even fragments
of the ode.
