The use of vitrified brick lor street paving
purposes seems to lie (living pretty general
satislaction, jinking from tht following
statements from city engineer in cities
where it lias been tried. They are only
few among quite number all similar in
character. The city engineer of Columbus,
Ohio, says that city "lia sixty miles of
vitritied brick street pavements (including
all kinds of manufactured block). The
first brick pavement was laid in ISS.V We
prefer stone for business streets, but use
brick for both kinds, and have brick pave
ments where some of our heaviest hauling
is done. Contractors guarantee the lite of
the pavement for five years. Our oldest
brick pavement is in fair condition. No re
pair of ny consequence have been made,
iirick pavements are not noisy. In some
instances they are slippery. We have no
grade oyer 3 feet to 100 feet. Sixes of brick
are lhx-'tS-xN; fSxtxlO (Hollow llayden
block). We have both kinds ol edge.
recommend a 0-inch concrete base. There
has been continued improvement in the
manufacture of paving brick, and there is
while on the other hand many of the ad
lierents of the democratic parly have been
lukewarm or opposed lo n vigorous en
forcement of its provisions. This from the
Inter Ocean ha the right ring:
' The Secretary of Stale Is lawyer enough
to understand the statute and sensible
enough lo know that there is nothing
so very terrible in registration, even
though the penalty for nonfompllnnce
should lie expulsion. A great Va'l lias been
said about retaliation. That would be all
right. Let Chin match our Oliver with
a Uoland, requiring every American in'that
country to register under precisely (he-tame
penalty as that laid down by the deary law.
No missionary or merchant unwilling to

The people should understand Just what
this kind of taxation means nod what they
uo doubt improvements will yet be made, hay to expw.t Ulul,.r 9 o-ration. More
than three-fourths of the revenue required
is to le raised by taxing the oor man's
breakfast table, as the three articles, sugar,
coffee and tea are to be taxed and form the
bulk of the taxable commodities. None of
the other articles mentioned are what might
so as to make the best paving material in
regard to cost and service."
The engineer of Canton, Ohio, says: "Of
vitritied brick street pavements, we have
190,000 square yards in streets from 18 to I 'JO
feet wide. Our first brick pavement was
laid inlsjw. These pavements are on both lermei i,,,e luxuries? What is the

not. Then came dry weather and the gun

years. You also pastured your lands when
the ground was wet, and soft and your

"A more complete and philosophical
solution ol the problem is found it seems
to me, in the constitution of human nature
itself, which bears with impatience the dull-
land, which necessarily indicates that some
improvement must follow from late rains.
Another lactor of importance is the heavy

ditions are favorable.
"The water-table is a term used toexpress
the level at which the water stands in the
noil. During a portion of the year the water
table in this valley is almost, if not quite at
the surface of the soil. In places it may
be a few inches, and in others a foot below
" Where there is no drainage, and when
for a long period the water-table lies
within a foot of the surface, tie roots and
rootlets which during the dry season ex
tend below the water-table, are destroyed
by the next rainy season. The effect is the
same as if these rootlets were cut oB at the
aanie depth by shears. Thus the efforts of
one season are destroyed before the next
begins. Is it surprising that the tree, after
a few years of stunted existence, should
finally give up the unequal contest and die?
"The purpose of under-drainage is to
permanently lower the water-table to the
depth or the tile. But don't ex
pect too much from the tile the first year.
The water must get into the habit, as it
were, of going into the tile and thus escap
ing. There must be time given for these
little channels to extend laterally away
from the tile. The first year they may not
extend more than five or six feet on either
side of the tile, and hence only that much
a strip ten or twelve feet wide will be
drained. The next year these channels
will be lengthened and so the next, so that
at the end of the seventh year your tile
ought to work better and drain the ground
more perfectly than the first year. You
will be surprised at the amount of very fine
sand that escapes from the outlet of your
tile drains. This sand conies from the ex
tension of the little channels which have
been cut back from the tile on the water
table. This all takes time.
" The changed mechanical condition of
this permanently drained soil soon begins
. to show itself. The first year as you plow
across the line of the tile drains, you can
readily tell where the drains are located by
the lightening of the draft on the team and
the friability of the soil. This condition is
really more marked in the tough clayey
lands than in black loams.
"The rapidity of growth of any plan t de
pends upon moisture and warmth. Prop
erly drained land is warmer than the nn
d rained: first, because the amount of evap
oration is lessened ; and second, that which
is just as important, the air circulates
through the soil down to tbe wafer-table and
gives up to tbe soil its extra beat.
During the dry season the air circulates
freely through well drained lands, because
oilier way, everybody desires to sell, prices
fall, and until the rememhrame of the
losses thus incurred is obliterated by time
when the season is over. 1 hu facts ol the
case seem to be that the railroads intend

forms it occurs from time to time in every
kind of business, and when it occurs in all
kinds and in many countries at once, it
produces a world-aide depression, such as
we now witness." lie concluded: " I see
no ground for duping to prevent by legisla
tion or otherwise the repetition of these
financial depressions, or even to lengthen
the intervals between them. They are,
with sickness, death, crime and poverty,
inevitable evils that grow out of human na
ture itself. A wise old liostonian once said
to me: ' The lucky man learns hy the mis
takes of others, the wise man by his own,
the fool by neither,' and Bince compara
tively few men are lucky the greater part
have to be taught by their own experience,
while those who belong to the third cute
gory never learn at all."
DEFENSE OF DR. BR1GGS.
Dr. Briggs in his defense said he had been
accused of teaching that many of the Old
Testament predictions had been reyrsed
by history and that the great body of Mes
sianic predictions had not been and would
not be fulfilled. This he had repudiated.
He also disclaimed that he was guilty of
teaching that the process of redemption ex
tended to the world to come in the case of
many who died in sin, stating he had repu
diated the Roman Catholic doctrine of pur
gatory and also the doctrine ol future pro
bation and regeneration after death, or any
beginning of Christian life after death. Con
tinuing on this subject, Dr. iiriggssaid:
" You have heard attributed to me the
dreadful doctrine of race redemption, but
if you will look into my inaugural you will
see all I have to say on that subject in con
nection with the incarnation of Jesus Christ.
The trouble w ith I bene brelhreu is they are
taking too narrow a view of the doctrines.
I would that I could touch such comfortable
doctrine, and if the time ever comes that I
can, I will gladly lay down my ministry in
the Presbyterian church and go forth to
teach the hope of salvation of some of those
who apparently have died without regen
eration in this world ; but I do not bold that
belief now, I cannot."
At tbe evening session Dr. Briggs de
fended the action of the presbytery at great
length, and then passed to the discussion of
the logic of the case. This point he dis
cussed for a long time, holding he must be
judged by his faith and practice, and not hy
individual interpretation, He held there
were errort of Holy Scripture in matters
among themselves hi which case the trav
eling public may he henelited.
Tin New York Hun is evidently alarmed
at the tendency of the democratic adminis
tration lince it warns the president not to
" eviscerate the Chicago platform," and
then becoming tsuddenly religious solemnly
" If any man shall add unto the words of
the prophecy of this book, (iod shall udd
unto him tfie plagues that are written in
this book; and if any man shall take away
from the words of the' book of this prophecy,
Cod shall take away his part from the tree
of life, and out of the holy city, which are
written in this hook."
Tub New York World intimates to Attorney-Central
Olney that it would be much
more pleasing to have him do his duty in
regard to trusts than to do nothing toward
wiping them out when it suys, " It is quite
pleasant to have the trusts die natural
deaths, but it would be much better if the
oflicers of the law contribute a little to
