of this fact and thu political enmity
existing between Mr. Cowen and Sena
tor Gorman, Mr. Cowen's selection as
president of the Haltlinore and Ohio
has no little political significance.
Mr. Cowen was born In Ohio about
55 years ago. He was graduated from
Princeton College, at which Institution
he formed an Intimate acquaintance
with Hubert Garrett which Is resjionBl-
blo for Mr. Cowen's present Intlueiitlal

after the young men left college, and

Slavery survived in England much
later than is generally supposed. The
word "bondage" in Northumberland
still means a female farm servant. The
coolies und salters i. a , salt miners of
East Lothian were actually slaves till
775. If they deserted their service, any
one harboring them was liable to a pen
alty of 5 if he did not restore them in
34 hours. Tho last slave in England
was not freed until 17U0, and in 1843
there was a cooly living who, as well
