THE TORONTO MARPLOT.
The Toronto World keeps up its
Machiavelian tactics. Out of a spirit
of mere partisanship it is doing all it
can to engender strife between Can
ada and the United States.
It pretends to fear that England
and Sir "Wilfrid Laurier, the Domin
ion premier, will trade off Canadian
interests for the sake of the Anglo
American alliance, and to support its
absurd contention gives a grossly in
accurate review of historic incidents
bearing on the fixing of the boundary
between Canada and the United
States. England, it claims, has made
a wanton surrender of Canadian ter
ritory, and un that line it refers to
the Oregon treaty, saying:
"In 1846 the Oregon treaty was
made. By it England gave away
northern California, Nevada and the
states of Washington and Oregon
without compensation of any kind,
and through ignorance of the value
of the territories. A young lord's
letter, it was said, bad quite an in
fluence. He was hunting in Oregon,
and he wrote home that the fish and
game there were no good."
The converse is the case. England
drove a wonderfully shrewd bargain
for Canada. The United Stales had
superior title to the entire watershed
of the Columbia. By treaty it bad
acquired the discovery rights of
Spain, and these rights were fortified
by Captain Gray's discovery in 1792
of the Columbia river, by Lewis and
Clarke's explorations in 1804-5, by
John Jacob Astor's occupation of the
country long before the Hudson's
Bay Com pany came in, and by actual
possession and settlement. At the
time the treaty was- signed which
made the 49th degree of latitude the
boundary line, smoke was rising over
the disputed territory from a thous
and American cabins.
.iiuouga j.-oik was elected . on a
platform expressly declaring for
American ownership of the Oregon
country up to the line of 54 40,
"with or without war with England,1
British diplomats wheedled him into
a square backdown, and he shuffled
upon the senate the responsibility for
the adoption of the unpopular treaty.
These historic facts are not re
called in a lamenting spirit, but to
point out the unreasonableness of the
Toronto paper, in finding fault, at
this late day, with England's adroit
settlement of the Oregon question.
Some Englishman, preter.diDg to
know more about the Filipinos than
Admiral l)ewey or General Merritt,
recently declared that Americans
promised the natives of the Philip
pines islands independence, and that
under this promise the Filipinos re
sisted all overtures from Germany
and France. The Englishman makes
a mistake. The Americans made no
promise of independence. Admiral
Dewey went to Manila to destroy the
Spanish fleet and to take possession
of the city. The Filipinos were in
no way concerned, and no promises
were made to them.
If it becomes necessary for the
United States troops m the Philp
pines to whip Aguinaldo and his
heathenish followers, we hope they
will make a complete job of it so
they will know for all time they are
whipped. Some of the sort of medi
cine the English used in India to
show the natives the disastrous con
sequences of opposition to civilized
methods will likely have to be ad
ministered to the obstreperous Fil
ipinos, and it ought not to be stunt
ed. It should be given In allopathic

Government Breeding: Them lor the
Purpose of Prodnclnar New Kind
of Silk An Interesting
Some very remarkable bugs are be
ing' hatched and reared just at present
by the experts of the government bu
reau of entomology at Washing-ton.
Most people would suppose that there
were enough insects in existence wit-n-out
resorting' to artificial propagation.;
but the fact is that this kind of scientific
work'has a very useful purpose in view.
This, too, notwithstanding thef act that
the species selected for breeding are
the most pestiferous that can be found.
The bug hatchery, pr "insectary," as
it is calledj is a brick building close by
the department of agriculture. In con
struction it resembles a greenhouse, the
upper part being of glass so as to admit
plenty of light for the insects. It is
divided into two compartments, one of
which is artificially heated for the ben
efit of tropical and other species that
require warmth, while the other is cold.
On 'shelves all around the interior, and
on the floor as well, are glassr jars and
queer glass-sided boxes containing a
great variety of odd-looking objects.
The objects in the glass jars are parts
of plants, fruits, dried-up vegetables,
pieces of branches or roots, etc. One
does not see any bugs at all, and the
reason why is simply that the veg
etables, fruits and so forth are' tjhe
natural food of the insects, and the lat
ter are either inside of them or else
are "done up" in cocoons for the win
ter. For example, there is a huge cocoon
nine inches long hanging from a twig
in a jar of exceptional size. This is the
temporary communal dwelling built by
the so-called "gregarious butterfly" in
Mexico. More correctly speaking, it is
the caterpillars transformed later into
butterflies that construct the cocoon
for a residence while they are under
going their metamorphosis. The co
coon looks and feels as if made oi tnicK
parchment, and at the lower end of it
is a small hole that serves for a door.
The labor employed in building it must
be enormous, under a powerful mag
nifying glass, it is seen to be composed
of an infinite number of shining and
very slender silken threads, crossing
each other in every direction. When
cut into,' the nest is found to contain
100 or more chrysalids, attached to the
walls on the inside each one repre
senting a future butterfly.
The habit of combining together to
build a house seemsi to be peculiar to
this species among butterflies. The silk
romposing the nest is exquisite, and
from 20 to 25 sheets of it can be stripped
off from the great cocoon as if woven
in a loom. If the silk could only be
spun,&he "gregarious butterfly" would
soon displace the silkworm, and; the
silks and satins of commerce would be
of butterfly manufacture. Unfor
tunately, the 'difficulty remains un
solved, though many attempts in this
direction! have been made. Could a so
lution of the problem be found, silk
would become at once enormously less
eostly, inasmuch as the cocoons of this
kind of butterflv are to be gathered in
immense numbers as.a wild crop in the
forests of Mexico. Boston Transcript.
