WHY NOTt I aometiniM wonder (Kit be a &ln I pray our graciouf Lord to pardon ma) Of that strange oreed the people harbor in An eastern country, if It may not be As true as strange. There are so many creeds, Bo many '1 believes;" yet who dare say There are too many, If each fit the needs Of some poor soul to help it on the way Or claim that one, and one alone, is right They are all bound In one great brotherhood, And in two words, it seems to me, each might Its teaching to the world express: Be good! But this belief is strange3t of them all, Tbot when the chief of angels downward fell From bit high seat above, and by that fall Became a monarch of the souls in hell ; That, though God ca3t him from his lofty place, In awful justice tor his punishment, Yet is lie bending from bis throne of grace In tender patience till the Bend repent; Until his angel nature come again, Then will the gracious words of "I forgive," Fall on the fires of hell, a cooling rain, And every tortured soul shall drink and lire. Then hell and earth and heaven shall be as one In love and peace and holy blessedness, Each warmed and lighted by the shining sun Of endless day, the sun of righteousness; Bnch Is their creed. What think you, ye who hear, That they blasphemer Perhaps; but, tell me, who Can know these things? However it appear I sometimes wonder if it ia not true. Harriet F. Blodgett in New Tork Sun. In the opinion of the Salt Lake Her-ald the Chinese have done far more good than evil to the United States, and their presence hero is not nearly so threatening as Is the presence of certain other foreigners who possess none of the Mongolian's virtues, though having most of his vices. The Herald is wel-come to that opinion, but it will not find favor with tho intelligent workingmen of this country. If there is any class of people who are more detrimental to American labsr interests than the Chinese, we' do not know who they are. China's threatened retaliation by shutting out Americans from that country will afreet only a few Ameri-cans some contractors now in that country, and some home manufacturers, who, as Thk Times stated yesterday, sell their products to the Chinese at a cheaper price than they do to their own countrymen.

At the ne of 25, and after a criminal career hardly equaled by most vicious men of twice his years, Edward Blair, appar-ently, has "reached the end of his rope." He began his life of outlawry with petty theft. Now he ia in jail at Ieipsic, O., on a charge of murder. v His victim was Arthur Henry, station agent of the Nickel Plate railway at Harts-bur- Putnam county, O. One day in March, Blair with two companions, now also under arrest, entered the depot at the place mentioned and at-tempted to rob the money drawer. Mr. Henry gal-lantly and success-fully defended his x trust, but in so doing lost his life, for Blair put a outlet tnrougn Edward BLAIR. his brain. Detec-tives followed the assassins persistently and finally achieved their capture. Since his 10th year Blair has been known as a highway robber, burglar, sneak thief and all round "crook." In 1880 be was sentenced to the Ohio penitentiary for a term of seven years for burglary. After serving four months he was taken to Hills-bor- o to appear as a witness. He jumped from a train and escaped, and the first ex-ploit that brought htm to public notice thereafter was the murder of Henry. CIT1T CIKCUI.ATI05.

The new railroad track built iu the United States during this year, up to July 1, wan 1900 miles. During the same period last year there were 1080 miles built. Tho total mileage con-structed during 18S0 was 5300. The new mileage this year will reach COOO. The southern states, east of the Missis-sippi, lead in new construction, having built 54 per cent of the entire mileage this year. During the year 1889 they built 30 per cent. According to the Railway Gazette, the southwestern states and territories have this year built 10 per cent of the total road built. The northwestern states, in which for a number of years the greatest activity has prevailed, have built but 10 per cent of the total mileage for the half of 1890. Georgia leads all the states in the amount of road built so far this year, with 188 milea. Tho chief charac-teristic is still has it has been for mauy months, short extensions of old lines. The entire amount built so far has been by ninety-si- x companies averaging less thau twenty miles each, but five of those have built over lifty miles. The strugglo to occupy new territory is chiefly in the stato of Washington. STRIKES NOT NEW. fittttlatiei Showing That labor Haa Al-ways Had to Fight for Its Rights. Strikes were as common in ancient times as at the present day. The exodus of the children of Israel from the land of Egypt was a great strike, where over a million of laborers threw down their tools and refused to work longer. Moses, a man who had been educated in the court of Pharaoh, organized them; and after much difficulty led them out in a body through the wilderness to the land of Canaan. This is one of the greatest strikes re-corded in ancient times. We shall have to refer to the character of the govern-ment they set up further on. There are records of strikes in ancient Greece and Rome, of great magnitude. The strike of the 20,000 miners in the silver mines of Laurium, where they were compelled to work naked, and on the most indifferent food, during the Polopo-nesia- u war, turned the scales against Athens, for, joining the forces of Sparta, they fought against their native land, in hopes that their hew masters would lighten their burdens. In the first servile war in Eome 200,-00- 0 laborers struck and took np arms against their country. It ended by many thousands being slaughtered by the armies of Rome in battle, and then af-ter their dofeat hunted down like wild beasts into their retreats in the forests and jungles, and 20,000 of them captured and crucified. In the. second servile war, 73 years before the coming of Christ, 800,000 laborers struck and car-ried on a successful .war against their country for several years,, but were finally defeated and 6,000 of them cruci-fied on the Appian Way, and left to hang there as a warning to future rebels. This great strike happened only after the greatest provocation. They had been reduced by the avarice of Rome to the most wretched slavery. Spartacus himself, their general and leader, was a captive slave, trained as a gladiator in the arena, where he was compelled to murder his fellow workmen to satisfy the cruel tastes of the elite of Rome. The slaves of both sexes were compelled to labor in the hot suns of summer and the chilly winds of winter, with no clothes on at all; and if 'they asked their masters for clo tiling were whipped and sent back to work. Their fare was black bread, nuts and dried figs. They were not allowed to have wheat bread. This is why Lazarus is represented in the Lord's parable as asking for the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table; he knew better than to ask for bread. As to the low condition to which the industrial classes had been reduced in the days of the Caesars, we have but to refer to the census of the free citizens of Rome, which are given at but a few thousand, while she had a population of probably 2,000,000, or inquire into the ownership of the land, which was held by 2,000 men. There was a time in the history of Rome vi'hen her landed prop-erty bolonged to her citizens, but the patricians got bold of it in time through the mortgage system. The lands were sub-divid- after this, under a com-munistic labor movement, and all private debts were abrogated, but in due time the patricians again got control by man-aging to loan the plebeians money on their real estate. This time their control was to last. There had been a law passed to sell a man into slavery for debt, so that at the time of Augustus Gttsar the most con-siderable number of the citizens of Rome were slaves. The lot of the few free citizens that remained was nearly as hard, for they had to compete with slave labor in tlia race of life. This was the state of Rome when it fell. The great mass of its citizens, having lost all patri-otic feeling for their country, refused to take up arms in its defense or joined the farces of her enemies. ! ARRIVALS AM) CLOSE OF MAILS.

The German emperor's new rules for wearing uniforms in the navy tills a book of forty pages. A monument to Alexander Stephens is at last to bo erected over his grave at Crawfordsville, Ga. Both of the Nevada senators, Stewart and Jones, are extravagantly found of tobacco, and their liking for a cigar is greater even than General Grant's. Donald G. Mitchell (Ik Marvel), who lives in a pretty cottage near New Haven, Conn., finds much in life to en-joy, even if he is sixty-eigh- t years old. There is a flourishing Japanese club in New York, of which nearly every native of Japau in the city is a member. The president is the present vice con-sul, leijiro Kito, who is thirty-si- x years old and married. Thomas B. Rarabo, of Morristown, N. J., has just been restored to posses-sion of his property, valued at $10,000 which was taken' from hira seventeen years ago, when tho court declared him to be a habitual drunkard. Theodore Tilton is described by a lady who recently saw hira in the new salon in Paris. lie has grown stout and his long, white hair was pushed behind his ears and his face had a restful look, peculiar to men of leisure. James Russell Lowell is at his homo at Elmwood, Cambridge, where he will remain during the summer. He is sufficiently recovered from his long ill-ness to take short walks about his grounds, and is rapidly gaining in strength. t . Cardinal Manning's aversion to strong drink in every form is so great that twice in articulo mortis he has re-fused stimulants, and he alludes triumphantly to the fact that he got well each time as proof that stimulants are never necessary. Says the Philadelphia Record: "The head on the standard dollar was tho work of a Philadelphia artist, Thomas Eakins, and the foundation for the de-sign was the profile of Miss Nannie Williams, who is at present or was re-cently a Philadelphia school teacher." Labouchere got hit badly the other day. Colonel Saundersou, in a heated speech, compared him to a "gargoyl." "I believe you don't know what a gargoyle is," said Labby. "Yes, Ido!" shouted Colonel S. ; "it is a grotesque gutter-spout!-" Labby joined in the general laugh. Father Ignatius, who is now on his way to this country, is regarded at home as a harmless sort of a crank. Ho is a native Cornishuian, and in 1862 began his movement to establish monkish brotherhoods in tho English church by reviving the order of St. Benedict. He was once shot at. Among the idiotic gossip in relation to Stanley is the assertion of some En-glish newspaper woman that Stanley acknowledges having received eleven refusals of Ins hand from many differ-ent women before ha won his intended bride, besides that Miss Tonuant her-self refused him until after his last expedition across Africa. Another of Punch's staff artiste Is about to court fame in the character of author. Linley Sambourne is about to start on a yatching expedition to Scandinavian waters, and proposes giv-ing the public the result of his observa-tions, recorded with both pen and pen-cil, on his return. The title of the book will be "The Land of the Vikings." THK LOUISIANA LOTTERY INFAMY. Governor Nichols, as was expected, has vetoed the Louisiana lottery bill. Au honest executive could not have dc'no othorwiso. In his veto message he denounces the lottery scheme in the most vigorous language. He charges that Loirisiana is selling out its birth-right for a iness of pottage, aud he pre-dicts that should this infamous measure pass, Louisiana will enter upon a period of strife such as never has been seen before in the state. No good, says the governor, will ever come of the monoy received as the price of honor and lib-erty; extravagance, profligacy and cor-ruption will assuredly follow as the night follows the day. Notwithstand-ing the earnest protests of Governor Nichols, the lottery bill will very likely be passed over Ids Veto. J It will be the darkest page in the history of Louisiana an everlasting disgrace. So bitter has the fight become over this scandal-ous scheme that it is predicted, that bloodshed will result between the hon-est people of Louisiana and the bribe-takers aud bribe-giver- My the way, keep your eye on The Times. ' . DOINGS OF ROYALTY. Princess Victoria, a sister of the young emperor of Germany, has decided to pass her life in single blessedness, and will set up an establishment of her own in London. . . Prince Bismarck has decided to make Friedrichsruhe his future home in pref-erence to his- - other estates, and has or-dered houses to be erected near the pal-ace for his clerks and assistants. Bathers and pedestrians on the beach at Trouville, France, were astonished re-cently to see the Princess de Sagan ap-pear in a bathing costume one side white, the other blue, the idea being carried out to' the details of gloves, but-tons and shoes. King Humbert is a prudent monarch, and does well to be so, in the present state of the kingdom's finances. Last year the civil list for the royal house-hold was 15,350,000 francs, and the king spent 15,849,999 francs 92 centimes, leav-ing a cent and three-quarte- to his credit for the ensuing year. Emperor lain has some respect for America. For the occasion of the entry of the American riflemen into Berlin he gave orders that the Stars and Stripes should be saluted with 101 guns when the palace was reached, and that a com-pany of the Imperial Guards should form an escort of honor to the flag. The Emperor Napoleon very rarely wrote a letter by his own hand, and those few whidh do exist are mostly in Italian. He usually dictated to a secre-tary at such a rapid rate that the aman-uensis had to fill up gaps from memory, and it is a funny fact that most of big love letters to Josephine were thus dic-tated. Smokklkss powder may be a great invention, but smokeless cigarettes would bo a greater ouc. Salt Lake is to have a $SO0.0OO sani-tarium. There is no better place in the world for such an institution. It is hoped that tho council will this evening do something towards giving the city a system of street signs. v Sci'isuis rBKUENT Poiitkk informs tho public that ho will not bo able to givo tho population fcf the country until August 1. A great many people are asking when street paving is to be begun? Tho matter is respectfully referred to the city council. Tub Times iu stating that no Utah men put in any bids for the proposed waterworks extension made a mistake. McDonald & Kays of Ogdeu were among the bidders. KIPLING'S CRITICISMS. ltuclyard Kipling, the East Indian, who has sprung with a single leap, as it wore, into literary fame in England, spent a short time iu tho United Stales about u year ago. He wrote a scries of letters to tho India Pioneer severely criticising the people of this country. Somo of his criticisms were just. In a recent interview with tho London cor-respondent of the New York World Mr. Klpliug reiterates bis criticisms of Americans. As to the young men he says: "They gamble, yaoht race, enjoy prize tights and cock tlghtH, the one openly, the other lu secret; they entiiUllsli luxurious clubs; they break themnelves over horseflesh and other things, and they are Instant In a quarrel. Inci-dentally I may mention that nine American youths out of ten are heavily handicapped by tho abnormal weakness of their beads." There is a great deal of truth in the above, but there is more truth iu the following: ' ''The Auierlc.au nation gets drunk by easy stages. A man takes a nip here and a nip there in the morning until by luucheou time, while not really drunk, he Is in a condition that no mwlmwg man ought to be iu until after din-ner." It must be admitted that Mr. Kipling is a keen observer of men aud mauuers. Nevor was there a truer tiling said re-garding the American convivial habit. It is a fact that there is altogether too much drinking by business men in bus-iness hours. No man should ever take a drop of liquor during his business hours. It totally unfits hint for the per-formance of his duties. It causes many costly blunders; inattention to business soon follows; and then conios the loss of trade, and in many cases the final re-sult is financial, physical and mental ruin. Drinking should bo dono in mod-eration, and at a time when it will in no way interfere with business duties. But the safest plan is not to drink at all. FIDELITY. Edward H. Rice. We had lingered by the seaside, Far into the cooler days, And the votaries of fashion All hod flown their different ways. We were seated by the seashore, Pensive seated, hand lu hand, Gazing sadly on the ripples Breaking on the shining sand. Idle nothings first were whispered. Idle a the aimless sea, Till, with sapphire eyes uplifted, She at length replied to me : "Ah, too Hweet has been our friendship, Far too long we both hare tarried Ou the morrow I must leave yon, ,. For, my darlmg, I am married : " "Married," then, I cried, upstarting, "Married," murmured with a sligh,. "Then Is this, indeed a parting, For, my dearest, so am II" The sidewalks iu tho business center are in a deplorable condition, andought to he replaced at once with substantial walks. The attention of the council is again' called to this fact. Several leading newspapers have stated that there are only three terri-tories left Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. They havo overlooked Okla-homa, Alaska, and Indian Territory. CLIPPED AND CONDENSED. Mrs. Houghton, a real estate dealer at Spokane tails, Wash., is said to have made $250,000 In four years. Max Muller says that some of the natives of India need fear no compari- son with the best men and women of Europe. A well-know- n colored fiddler at An-napolis, Md., dreamed that he had only ono day longorto live, and died accord-ingly- - SHE CHANGED HER MIND. Mil Lucm Abandon! Ona Lover ta Marry Another. Herbert Skinner was and is a Chicago barber. He saved monoy as a journeyman and added to his capital as a "boss." The MISS LUCAS AND MK. 8K INKER. world looked bright before him and only one want remained unsatisfied. He d to be loved for himself alone. In the role of a poor young man he made the acquaintance of Annabel Lucas, laid siege to hor heart and won the promise of her hand. The day was set, the flat fur-nished, the wedding suit bought and paid for and the license procured. Before en-gaging the minister Mr. Skinner stopped at a lawyer's and made his will, leaving property and cash to the amount of $10,000 to the girl he expected to marry. When he reached home he found this note await-ing him: Mr. Bert Ssisssn You and I forever ara parted. I have just been married to one I dearly love. Forgive and forget me. Bcujc The victim of Miss Annabel's incon-stancy was, to nse his own language, "pan lyzed." His head swam, his strength and courage left him. ho grew ill, and it be-came necessary to call a doctor. A few simple remedies restored Mr. Skinner's equilibrium, and then he came to the phil-osophical conclusion that it was better to lose a girl before marriage than afterwards. He has on hand for future use a lady's gold watch, a diamond engagement ring and a solid gold wedding ring. John W. ' Martin, a man she had known less than a week, is the person to whom MisvLncas was married. Had she been aware of Barber Skinner's wealth and devotion it is possible the young woman would have proven constant instead of fickle . . - .'1 It is predicted that the end of the silver fight is not far off, and that silver will come out on top. It has been a long contest, and the people will be glad when it is over, especially if tho result is in favor of silver. Every effort should be wade to get out the full Liberal vote at next Mon-day's school election. It is hoped that any Liberal voter, who contemplates taking a vacation, will postpone it until after tho election, aud every Liberal voter who is at present out of tho city should return in time to cast a vote. CRISP CONDENSATIONS. Japan has celebrated the 2,555th an-niversary of the coronation of the first emperor of the country. The money annually spent for cosmet-ics by the women of the United States would paint 17,000 houses, allowing $75 for each house. , Professor Boone, of .Indiana university, says that of 6,500 theological students in the United States less than one-four-are college graduates. All the other graduates make a break for journalism. A colored dentist in Macon uses no in-struments except his fingers in extract-ing teeth. By means of long practice his fingers have become as strong as for-ceps, and he claims that he can pull teeth faster and with less pain than any dentist with instruments. There is a small boy in Belfast, Me., who has a mania for clocks and goes about inspecting and comparing them. He seems to be posted on the correct time, and if a clock is fast or slow or there is anything peculiar in its appear-ance he is sure to call attention to it. One of the most attractive features of the Jamaica exhibition in 1891 will be tho industrial village, where a number of peasantry in model huts will be en-gaged in their usual occupations, making baskets, wicketwork, cassova, native pot-tery, nets, sugar, etc., while the coolies will show their methods of weaving. The biggest workshop in the world is said to be that of Herr Krupp, the fa-mous gunmaker of Essen. The growth of tins vast establishment has been wonderful. In 1833 it employed 9 work-men; in 1848, 74; in July, 1888, 20,960 men were employed, and the families of the workmen numbered 78,769 souls. Of these reside in dwellings provided by the firm,' A remartabl English book, entitled "Black Beauty, or The 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' of the Horse," has just been pub-lished by tJie American Humane Educa-tion society, of Boston. This book is written by a horse himself, and traces his life from the time he is a colt through a happj- - life in the country, a tiresome life as a cab horse in London, and finally a green old age among friends. This book has been exceedingly popular in England, where over 100,000 copies have been sold, and is said to bo doing a great deal of good in ibolishing cruelty to horses. An eastern paper says dukedoms are at a discount. Bismarck declined one and now Salisbury has followed suit. There were no Bismarcks or Salisburys at the Ogduu carnival. Dukedoms were :i plentiful as blackberries in July, and t hey were given away ns freely as water, not one of them being declined. Goveknoh General Stanlev will probably be given a title of nobility on his wedding day either by the queeu of England or the king of Belgium, so say the dispatches. Mr. Stanley has cer-tainly earned such an honor, and is more entitled to a title of nobility than nine-tenth- s of the Europeans who now possess them. II ILL'S SIEKCI1. Governor Hill of New York took ad-vantage of his invitation to make a speech at the unveiling of tho Hen-dricks monument. His speech was mainly au arraignuuml of the repub-lican party and the present administra-tion. This was .to be expected from a man who is seeking the democratic presidential nomination, but it strikes a great many people as rather question-able propriety to make a political speech on such an occasion.- Several leading independent democratic papers are criticising Governor Hill on this ac-count. The Boston Herald, for instance, says: 'Governor Hill's remarks at In-dianapolis deservo to be circulated as a campaign document. They are rather better suited for such a purpose thau for an address at the dedication of tho statue of a deceased statesman." Governor Hill's chief rival, Grover Cleveland, who was also in-vited to attend, was not present, owing to his having au important engage-ment. Tho Jvcw York Suu, which is keeping close watch of Cleveland, in-timates that he had no engagement, and could have gone to Indianapolis if he had any regard for the. memory of Hendricks. 4? The census gives Omaha about as many people as Kansas City. There is now a very chilly feeling on the part of Kansas City towards Omaha. If they were as near each other as St. Paul and Minneapolis there would be war be-tween them. Of course Kansas City claims to have been undercounted, aud at the same time; she charges that Omaha lias been overcounted. A new lion hunter has arisen to suc- ceed the late Bomboiuel in Algeria named Cattcr. who invites not"ouiy men but women to come and hunt.
