The stand taken by Mlshop Totter In
New York against the divorce evil has
liad a good effect not only lu ranging
the I till iii-ii t ttil and wealthy KpltU'opnl
denomination against It, but also lu
purring the Presbyterians to action at
the meeting of the synod of New York.
The Presbyterian synod enjoined "upon
Its ministers absolutely to refuso to
marry divorced persons, except It Is the
Innocent party under a divorce granted
for reasons fully recognized lu the New
TcHtameut." This Is more liberal than
the stand taken by Mlshop I'otter and
more fully accords with the prevailing
entlmeut that the Innocent should not
be made to suffer with the guilty.
Kuglaud Is being Invaded by the mos

alarmed at the Invasion. Whether tho

from South America or timber from
Canada, or was purposely transported
from America to quicken the British
conscience, Is not known, but the Insect

4 id has come for more than a nominal
visit. The entomologists are trvliiir to
account for Its long delay In visiting
Knglaud, but this does not lessen Its
Ktlug. nor Its possibilities of multipli
cation. Its faiulhir song will doubtless
long abide lu the laud. Perhaps, con
sidering the consequences of tho new
Invasion upon the peace and tranquil
lity of the Island, the Queen has done
well to call out the entire mllltla ro
erve, While the Increase of armies In Ki
rope Is now so slow that It may Ih said
to have practically ceased, the conti
nental states are working with luces
Mint energy toward the creation of big
navies. It Is evident that lu course of
time the forces atloat, unless a change
of policy Is compelled meanwhile, will
bear comparison In offensive strength
with the torccs ashore. The other day
we had the news that Kussla had es
tnbllshed a naval credit of 87,000,OtHi
rubles, which, of course, means a tre
mendous addition to her tlrst line of
defense and offense. Franco Is douu

Afar to the northwest of tho Klon
dike gold-fields this time oil United
States soli, but on a waste unspeakably
bare, desolate and Arctic some placer
gold-mining has lately been begun lu
regions which ate known as the Capo
Nome and Kotzebuu districts. Nome
Is a capo and Kotzebuu a sound, but
both mining districts aro far Inland
frotn the coast. Neither of the districts
has any growths of timber. To them
all the fuel used In mining must be
carried. Tho hardships experienced by
miners are far more severe than those
likely to bo encountered In the Klon
dike. Hut thither miners are Hocking
In largo numbers, although It Is known
that more than a hundred men of one
expedition perished of scurvy, nnd tho
returns lu gold havo been but meager.
It Is a strange, yet perhaps on tho
whole a creditable characteristic, that
hardships and suffering, and oven des
olate surroundings and depressing cir
cumstances, seem to attract men of our
race. An American public man onco
said: "There Is no employment, no
matter how terrible and repellent It
may be, for which a man cannot bo
found. At any rate, I shall not doubt
this so long ns there aro two appli
cants for every vacancy on the Nan
tucket light-ship." The men upon this
ship must spend months lu practical
solitude, anchored llfty miles from the
shore, seeing only their few compan
ions, having only the uwt restricted
opportunities to go on land, restlessly
heaved to and fro, night and day, and
subject to death In any furious, over
mastering storm. Tho new gold-Holds
where death Is nearer at hand than
gold literally yawn with privation and
misery as compared with tho Nantuck
et light-ship; and yet men seek them,
Impelled by the gambling spirit that
makes mining attractive, and by a love
of desperate venture over which they
apparently have no control.
The conference of commissioners on
uniform State laws which was held In
llufl'alo last August has had published
through Its committee on publication
tho acts that were prepared on divorce
and considered at tho several sessions
of the conference. One of these acts
enumerates thoenmpctont causes for di
vorce as follows: Adultery, extreme
cruelty, habitual drunkenness or tho
continued habit of Intoxication, con
viction of felony, with Hontouee of Im
prisonment to a State prison or peniten
tiary, and continuous desertion, tho
tlmo limit to bo specllled later. Fully
as Important as this definition of
causes are the provisions of tho other
act, which relate to questions of pro
cedure. These aro alined against tho
practice of chasing from one State to
another to escape the Jurisdiction of
tho proper courts and against the
equally pernicious practice of secrecy.
A reasonable period of residence Is
specified, and the greatest care Is taken
that due notice of suit shall bo given,
and that there shall bo no unseemly
haste lu arriving at and announcing
Judgment. As to the causes there can
hardly be a rational difference of opin
ion. They aro all HUlllclent, and If
nothing less were accepted as a Justlll
cation for divorce under the regula
tions of the second act the number of
legal separations would diminish amaz
ingly. Mut supposing that there were
a general acceptance of tho causes
nothing could be accomplished In a re
formatory way without tho regula
tions. Ah matters stand now the spirit
of tho laws Is constantly evaded by
dodges of many descriptions. Once a
man or woman has lost respect for the
sanctity or tho serious contractual
character of marriage, and the way for
a separation Is clear, especially If there
be an Inclination toward collusion. The
evil has grown to enormous proportions
and has become a really dangerous
menace to society. If tho barrier of a
traditional sentiment did not still exert'
great Influence, inarrlago as an Insti
tution would be deprived of all Its de
fenses. Mut lax laws create a lax sen
timent, anil every tlmo a divorce Is
granted for Insutllcleut reasons new
strength Is added to the Insidious and
demorall.lug forces already at work,
ltiitzen advocates for tho abolition of
restrictions who have enjoyed tho lib
erty of doing what they pleased help
to" break down tho resistance of others
by boldly Justifying their own license
and encouraging discontent and rebel
lion. There Is no subject lu which tho
welfare of society Is more deeply In
volved, and tho States should try to
get together along tho Hues suggested
by tho conference.
Metropolitan llt(fgnm' Trust.
Tho New York police havo recently
miulo tho discovery that most of tho
successful beggars In the city belong to
a trust. The Moggnrs' trust Is said to
own a large house lu Mrooklyn, which
provides every description of beggars
supplies, Including bogus wooden arms,
legs, humpbacks, pitiful placards for
alleged blind men and cripples, etc.
Tho beggars pay tho trust a certain
percentage of their earnings, ami tho
trust regulates the hours of their labor,
selects the districts, furnishes a list of
charitably disposed people, and looks
after members when 111. Tho police
say that several wealthy and cultured
mendicants belonging to tho trust live
lu fashionable tlats. Several attended
tho grand opera last season, and ouo
rides In his own carriage.
