positively that "the confederates were the first to use
torpedoes as an effective enginery of warfare," and
that Maury, who, by the way, forgot his oath of al
legiance to the United States, was one of the most
I conspicuous contributors to their xise.
So it seems the introduction of torpedoes is to be
laid to Americans, after all. But it also seems they
I did not do the original inventors much good.
stance, one cargo of colonists comprised a score of
"gentlemen" and several hundred laboring men and
handicraftsmen. It is true that historians have added
a descriptive word to the selected class and called
them "gentlemen adventurers," but the idea of su

BOUNDARIES OP THE UNITED STATES,
A publication that finds a logical place in the
library of both the historian and the geographer is
a bulletin (No. 226) entitled" Boundaries of the
United States and of the Several States and Terri
tories, with an Outline of the History of all Import'
ant Changes of Territory," which has just been pub
lished by the United States geological survey for
gratuitous distribution. The author is Mr. Henry
Gannett, who prepared this paper in its first form in
1885, when it was published as bulleting No. 13. A

x Besides giving the present boundaries of the conn

territory and the laws appertaining to those changes.

Dispatch takes exception, as concerns the last clause, quently to be successful,
and refers to a paper contributed to its columns by
Colonel Richard L. Maury, son of Commodore Maury,
well known as a marine geographer and sometimes al
luded to as "The Pathfinder of the Sea," in imitation
f John Charles Fremont's title, "The Pathfinder,"
Colonel Maury maEes the claim that his father did a
"wonderful work "in developing the torpedo, and
that he "laid the foundations upon which the pres
ent torpedo service of the world has been built." He
claims that more than 40 Federal vessels were de
stroyed by confederate torpedoes, and the Times
Dispatch gives a brief account of the destruction of
ne of these, called "the Commodore Jones," and
what happened as a consequence. Says the Rich
mond paper: y'
"This vessel was sailing up James river unsus
picious of danger, but when near Deep Bottom a
torpedo was exploded under it and it was completely
destroyed. There were other federal vessels near by,
and these landed a force on the shore and captured
the confederates who were in charge of the torpedo
lattery there. All of the men captured were killed ;'
they were run down and bayonetted. " ! ' . ' .

Stanley's RtsL Title.
Th laurels that Stanley won were
earned by his own strength and en
deavor. He gave trade and clvlllia
tlon a new Impetus. 1 He did more to
chaneg the may of Africa and to give
the face of the world a new expres
sion than any other man since Wash
ington. In the empty title that he ac
cepted from the British government Is
to be found the only substitution of
shadow for substance In his career.
The hollowness and claptrap of knight
hood, supposed, by worshipers of rank
and privilege, to distinguish the great
from the little, add nothing to honors
won In the most difficult field of en
deavor. The glory that he gained from
the Jungles, fields, and streams of an
unexplored and almost Impenetrable
country was embellished with no new
luster by the "sir" which he permit
ted British aristocracy to place before
his name. He was a member of the
nobility of character and achievement,
and as such he needed no tile. He was
broad-minded and ingenuous. He en
tertained no Illusions regarding the re
lative positions of men. He was suf
ficiently democratic not to hide the
story of his humble origin, and fre
quently visited the poorhouse, where his
Interesting history begins. He knew

Is not what a man Is born unto but
what he makes of himself that brings
rank. Posterity will forget Stanley,
the knight, but the future world of
commerce, art. Industry and Independ
