CREMATION IN ENGLAND.
How I.iuly Dllke's Hotly wns lnelii-cratcd"S?li-
Among the clergy ono of I ho most
enthusiastic- advocates of cremation is
the Rev. H. R. llaweis, of London,
who has just railed for home from this
city. When tho question was lirst agi
tated, or rather revived, about ten
years ago, Mr. llaweis wrote a novel
entitled "Ashes to ashes; A Prelude to
Cremation," in which the arguments
hi behalf of tho reform are presented
by the hero of a story, a brilliant young
French doctor. Mr. llaweis recently
received a 'Tribune reporter, at the
house of Courtlaiult l'almer, and in re
sponse to any inquiry as to how tho
movement is going forward in England,
'Cremation has had a curious history
with u. About a dozen years ago Sir
William Thompson wrote an article in
.favor of tho measure, which was pub
lished in the Contemporary llcview. It
excited a groat deal of discussion
among all classes and bitter opposition
particularly from tho clergy. Shortly
afterward the Cremation Society of
London was formed. Its membership
included Sir William Thompson, who
was made president, Sir Spencer Wells,
myself and various other representatives
of literature, science and art. For the
purpose of ascertaining whether 'hero
was any legal obstacle in the way of
tho practional adoption of cremation,
the society opened a correspondence on
tho subject with the Homo Secretary,
Sir Vernon Uarcourt. We wore inform
ed by him that any attempt to put into
practice this mode of burial would bo
immediately stopped by tho Govern
ment, and also that ho would oppose
any bill introduced to legalize crema
tion. Rut the reform was received
with favor by tho public and was pro
gressing favorably until the burning of
the body of Mr. Charles Dilko's lirst
wife at Berlin. Lady Dillke had ex
pressed adesiro to bo cremated, and ac
cordingly after her death, her body w;is
taken to Germany for that purpose. It
was distinctly understood that tho in
cineration should bo strictly private,
but notwithstanding this, a few
scientists were admitted to tho building.
Tho retort doors were opened during
the process for their inspection, and
they took notes of tho burning. This
fact leaked out, and the Times, which
was then inimical to Sir Charles Dillke
published a paragraph in reference to
his wife's cremation, which created a
fitorm of public feeling against Sir
Charles nnd tho burial system itself.
Pamplols of a vulgar character, con
demning tho scheme, were hawked
about the streets and widely circulated.
My book had been published shortly be
fore this, and already had run through
three editions, but after this unfortu
nate occurrence its sale was completely
(stopped. In short tho entire movement
had received a paralytic stroke in Eng
land. For the next six or seven years
all efforts to arouse public interest in
the matter wcro futile, and to till ap
pearance tho project was doomed to
prove an utter failure. Tho society
continued to hold meetings from time
to time, until Sir Wm, Siemens built,
for us the present crematory at Working
Cemetery, which is about thirty miles
from London, and in it wo experiment
ed with tho carcasses of sheep and other
"With tho Siemens incinerating ap
paratus arc you able to reduce the en
tiro framework of tho body to lino
white ashes?" inquired tho reporter.
'Oh, no. Pieces of tho denser bones,
such as the femur and humerus, gener
ally remain, and havo to bo crushed to
powder. But this can bo done easily.
It was not until last year that our
movement received a fresh impetus in
a rather curious way. A singular being
in Wales, who called himself a Druid,
undertook to cremate his child with
petroleum in an open iield. Tho neigh
bors interposed and had him arrested.
Ho was taken beforo a magistrate, but
tho court held that tho act was not ille
gal, and ho was discharged. All legal
objections against cremation being thus
removed, the society resumed opera
tions, and tho lirst human body, that of
Mrs. Pcckersgill, was burned last year
at Woking. Tho question of disposing
of tho dead is of much greater import
ance with us than with yon, owing, of
course, to tho thickly settled condition
of tho Old World. Still I think crema
tion is rapidly becoming u necessity in
all of your largo cities."
"Do you agree with tho Italian crc
mationists and others who say that
graveyards throw off a dangerous
amount of mephitic vapors?"
"I did hold that doctrine somg years
ago, but personal investigations havo
caused mo to chango my belief sorao
what. I think tho earth not only deod
orizes the gases arising from tho de
caying bodies, but also renders them
innocuous. In excavations which wcro
recently made at Hern Ray, tho bodiei
that had been buried from tivc to twen
ty years wero found to be entirely in
odorous. The greatest danger front
graveyards is the pollution of tin
water courses in their vicinity, and ic
villages, where the burying-grounrt is
often situated in tho center of the town,
the historic village pump becomes s
fruitful source of disease. I considei
vault, burial the most dangerous of all
the methods in ue, for no attempt i.
then made to disinfect the dangerous
gases. Yes, cremation is gninin"
strength, not only in England but all
over Europe. An elaborate now crema
tory is under way in Paris, and others
are being erected in the groat continen
"Did the Greek and Romans ndopl
cremation for sanitary or superstitious
"I am inclincn to think that they
practiced the cu,toni from their habit
of sacrificing animals and the like tc
the gods. Doubtless there was some
thing practical in this system with them
as with us, but they made it a sort of
religious exercise, and performed it
with all sorts of saered ceremonies. It
was natural to them, used as they were
to ofl'ering frcqu.-nt burnt sacrilices."
"Do you think tho Hebrews prac
ticed cremation to an' extent?"
"They burned the bodies of sonic of
their kings, as is recorded in the Scrip
ture, and also the bodies of animals in
tho Valley of Tophet, outside of Jeru
salem, but it was not. their regular
mode of burial." New York Tribune.
Where Canada Leads the States.
"In speaking of Canada and every
thing pertaining to the country, includ
ing tho government, Americans gener
ally make the remark that wo arc one
hundred years behind the ago," said a
prominent Canadian police official to a
reporter for Tlie Detroit Free Press.
"There may bo some truth in the
statement," ho continued, "but in the
administration of criminal justice I am
of the opinion that Canada leads Michi
gan, if not any of the states in the
union. Last, March when Ashman,
Kuhn and Bowles escaped from the
house of correction at Ionia, 1 among
others received a circular from Warden
Watkins, ofl'ering $225 reward for their
capture, or f?7.j for tho capture of cith
er of them. Unfortunately for ine, how
ever, they did not conic my way, but a
few days after the escape were captured
by Chief Rains and tho Windsor police.
The annoyance and expense attending
their extradition and return to the
United States wero very great, but that
was not the fault of tho Windsor au
thorities, who did all that was possible
to get rid of tho desperate trio, When
they wero safely caged at Detroit, and
tho time camo for settling tho bills,
Chief Bains received a check for $"",
ono third of tho promised reward, and
since then has heard nothing moro of
tho men, except that Rowles and Kuhn
wero back at Ionia and Ashman stands
a good chance of being sent down for n
"There is no just reason why t lie
Windsor police should not receive tin
remaining $150 duo them. They per
formed all that was required of them,
and the money should bo paid. Escapes
from Ionia are not unfrequont, and as
a rule tho criminals cross tho river a I
tho first opportunity. If tho prison of
ficials desiro tho co-operation of the
Canadian police they should fulfill al!
promises, even if they aro expensive.
Otherwise tlioy can not expect any as
sistance from us in the future."

There aro ono hundred and twelve
soldiers in this Congress. Forty-font
of theso wcro in tho Confederate Amy
and sixty-eight in that of tho Union,
Tho captains, colonels and generals
predominate, but hero and there wo lint
tho record of a private, such as Thom
as, of Illinois; Kleiner, of Indiana, and
Nelson, of Mississippi. Cobb, of In
diana, proudly states that ho was a
militiaman, while Plumb, of Illinois, was
a captain and a quartermaster. Toic
Reed, of Maine, was a paymaster in the
United States Navy, and his colleague,
Boutclle, was a naval lieutenant.
Among tho Union generals there arc
Henderson, of Illinois; Viele, of New
York; Major-Gen, Osborne, of Pennsyl

brigadier general, and Kctchani, ol
Now York, has a similar title. The

Wathington Letter in Cleveland Leader
Its History In the United stntcs--Tho
"The History of Bimetallism in the
United States." By J. Lawrence Laugh
lin, Ph. 1)., assiMant professor of politi
cal economy in Harvard University.
The history of the gold and silver
coinage of the United States is an inter
esting story of fluctuations. From 1792
tolS,:l gold and silver circulated sid" by
side without clashing. In 1853 gold
was abundant and silver scarce, Califor
nia having been found auriferous and
Jit-coveries of gold having been made
il-oin Russia and Australia. The gold
product reached its highest amount soon
after 1 Sol. "It is not too much to say
that almost all tho bimetallic discussions
of recent years would not have arisen
had not this unexpected and astonish
ing stream of gold from tho mines of
both tho new and old world been poured
upon the market. From its date almost
all our modern problems relating to
gold and silver, and wo cannot discuss
the silver question of to-day without
reference to this extraordinary produc
tion of gold. From an average annual
production in 18-10-1850 of about .?S,
000,000, the gold supply increased to a
figure beyond $150,000,000 after 1850.
The value of gold was lowered.
Having enough gold, tho country did not
care for silver. At the existing and only
nominal mint ratio of 1.10, the silver
dollar could not circulate, and tho act
of 18515, regulating tho coinage, practic
ally ignored it. It is llierefoio to be
distinctly remembered that in 1853 tho
actual use of silver as an illuminated le
gal tender equally with gold, was de
cisively abandoned. Under any condi
tions then existing a double standard
was publicity admitted to bo hopoless.
The main animus of the act, therefore,
is to bo found in what is not included in
it that is, in tho omission to insert any
provision which would bring tho silver
dollar again into circulation.
In fact, at no time after tho act of
1853 until the civil war was tho silver
dollar of -112A grains equal to less than
103 or 101 cents of our gold coins, and,
consequently, it was never seen in cir
culation, Tho country had willingly
acquiesced in tho practical adoption of
tiic single gold standard. Silver was
only used for small payments, and all
large values wero based upon gold. Up
to this time there was no trouble in our
coinago system. It, worked naturally,
and therefore admirably. All adjust
ments were made without friction.
Tho civil war brought a momentous
clnuigc, and wc have been wallowing in
a stormy sea of financial theories and
practices ever since. As soon as tho
United States legal-tender acts wcro
passed, Gresham's law came into oper
ation that when two metals aro both le
gal tenders tho cheaper ono will drive
tho dearer ono out of circulation.
As United States legal tenders
depreciated gold disappeared.
Even tho small quantity of subsid
iary silver held went out of tho market.
When gold was at par, silver at 90, and
United States legal-tender notes at 81.
the paper money rapidly dislodged both
coins. Even the smaller silver change
disappeared, and its absence called into
existence tokens, tickets, checks and
substitutes of every description issued
by merchants and shopkeepers, and
Congress was obliged hastily to author
ize a currency, originally based on the
likeness of postage stamps, but which
finally resulted in tho simple issuo of
what was known as "tho fractional cur
rency." It was while tho legal-tender curren
cy was in uso that the "demonetization
of silver" took place. Tho act of 1873
reads "that tho silver coins of the Uni
ted States shall bo a trade dollar, a
half-dollar or 50-cent pieco, a quarter
dollar or 25-cent piece, n dime or 10
ccnt piece." The coinago of tho stand
ard stiver dollar is not provided for.
Wo give Mr. Laughlin's explanation
nnd comments: "In tho act of 1873, wo
find a simplo legal recognition of that
which had been tho immediate result of
the net of 1853, and which had been an
admitted fact in the history of our coin
ago during tho preceding twenty years.
In 1853 it had been agreed toaccopttho
situation by which wo had come to havo
gold for largo payments and to relegate
silver to a limited servico in tho sub
sidiary coins. Tho act of 1873, howev
er, dropped tho silver dollar out of tho
list of silver coins. In discontinu
ing tho coinago of tho silver dollar tho
act of 1873 thereby simply recognized a
fact which had been obvious to every
one since 1819, Silvor was not driven
out of circulation by of act 1873, which
omitted tho dollars of 412J grains, since
it had not been in circulation for moro
than twenty-fivo years. Hut
while tho act of 1873 had Httlo impor
tance in changing existing conditions,
It had an influence of a kind which, at
the present time, can scarcely bo over
estimated. Wo aro now in tho course
of our story approaching the year 1870,
in which occurred the phenomenal fall
in tho value of silver. Had the demon
etization of tho silver dollar not been
accomplished in 187G and 1874, we
should have found ourselves in 1870
with a single silver standard, and the
resumption of specie payments on Jan
uary 1, 1S70, would have been in silver,
not in gold, and 15 per cent of all our
contracts and existing obligations
would have been repudiated. The act
of 1873 was a pieco of good fortune
which saved our financial credit, and
protected the honor of our country."
This fall in the value of silver nbovo
referred to is one of the mot important
events in our financial annals, and
deserves a full explanation of its
A committee of the English House
of Commons in 1870 reached lheo gen
erally accepted conclusions on tho sub
ject: "Your eonunitto aro of tho opinion
that the cvidenco taken conclusively
shows that the fall in the price of silver
is due to the following causes:
"(I.) To the discovery of new silver
mines of great richness in tho State of
"(2.) To tho introduction of a gold
currency into Germany in place of
tho previous silver currency. Tills
operation commenced at the end of
"(3.) To tho decreased demand for
silver for export to India.
"It should bo added, (4,) that tho
Scandinavian Governments havo also
substituted gold for silver in their cur
rency. "(5.) That tho Latin Union, com
prising France, Belgium, Switzerland,
Italy and Greece, havo since 1874 lim
ited the amount of silver to be coined in
tho mints yearly of each member of tho
union, suspending tho privilege former
ly accorded to all holders of silver
bullion, of claiming to havo their bull
ion turned into coin without restric
tion. "(0.) That Holland has also passed a
temporary act restricting, except on ac
count of tho Government, tho coinago
of silver, and authorizing tho coinage
"It will bo observed that two sets of
causes have been simultaneously in op
eration; tho increased production of tho
newly discovered mines, and tho sur
plus silver thrown upon the market by
Germany, havo afl'ected tlio supply. At
the same time, tho decreased amounts
required for India and tho decreased
purchases of silver by the Latin Union
havo effected tho demand. A serious
fall in tho prico of silver was therefore
Thus tho Committee of tho Ilousoof
Commons a very clear and compre
hensive statement, and ono generally
accepted. Mr. Lntighlin points out,
however, some fundamental causes,
which lio below these moro immediate
ones. First, tho increased use of gold,
consequent upon its abundance from
1840 to 1870; second, its convenient uso
in tho large transactions of eomnicreo
of late years, giving rise to an enor
mous demnnd for that ono of tho two
precious metals which lias tho greatest
value in tho smallest bulk.
Now, says Prof. Liuighlin, at this
precise time, when not a State in Eu
rope dared open its mint to silver, "tho
United States stupidly camo forward
and tuado an attempt to support the
value of silver quite by itsolf. It is re
corded that a very muscular and will
ing workman engaged withsoveral oth
ers in raising a huge stono to its place
by means of ropes and pulleys, observ
ed that others had let go their hold on
tho ropes, and that the heavy mass was
beginning to fall. Confident of his
strength, he, by himself, laid hold of
the ropo and tried to sustain tho weight
by his unaided power.- The momentum
of tho falling stone was moro than ho
could overcome; ho was thrown up
ward, Hung to the ground, and injured
for life. Tho action of tho United
States was of a similar character. It
undertook to do what all tho world
without us was not ablo to do namely,
to keep up tho valuo of silver in the faco
of tho increased supply of gold. Wo
may break tho fall of silver, but
wo shall imperil ourselves. Wo
shall lose by buying millions of a com
modity which wo must soil at a great
sacrifice tho greater as wo sell tho
more. So lold and daring an attempt,
so utterly unwarranted by any financial
wisdom, seems almost inexplicably to
tho student of financial history."
Prof. Laughlm goes on to glvo tho
facts of our silver legislation, tracing its
source to tho "greenback craze," the un
reasoning desire for relief from tho bus
iness depression of 1873, especially in tho
debtor West, and tho shrewd tactics of
tho owners of tho silvor bullion produo
cdby our mines. Tho story is more ro
cont, and wo will not follow him further.
That wo aro overburdened with silver,
and that tho pcoplo want hut a certain
small quantity of It, is too patent for
discussion. What amount we have on
hand we must, of course keep, having
bought it. and ns to this, tho prospect is
that our citizens will havo to take 80
cents on the dollar. Hut as so ably sot
forth in President Cleveland's message,
in tho future it is absolutely necessary
in the interest of every clas of the
community that the "compulsory coin
age of silver dollar-i directed by the law
passed in February, 1878," should bo
suspended. That is the lirt thing. Re
flection and discussion, it is to be hoped,
will bring a sounder and safer basis of
legislation thereafter. Baltimore Sun.
A THREE-DROP DRINK.

"I've been a barkeeper now for about
fifteen years, but I'll be blest if I wasn't
knocked out this morning," said nn old
and popular member of the calling, who
hangs out in a Fifth Avenue saloon.
"How was that?" asked a reporter,
who had dropped in to light a toby.
"Why it was when I first opened up,
and I was sort o' fixing things, when in
came a nice-looking, middle-aged man,
with a mustache and goalee. Hard-liquor,
and straight," says I to myself,
for I've got away of sizin' up, as you
might say, just from their appearance."
"Give mo some brandy, says he,
rather short, like all old regulars who
take what they call an 'eye-opener' be
fore breakfast. 1 handed him the bot
tle and pushed over a glass of water, to
take tho taste out of his mouth. Well,
that duck just took tho bottle, and put
ting his thumb over tho top dropped
three drops on his tonguo an' then set
the bottle back an' didn't say a word.
" 'What's tho matter with it?' says T,
kind o' riled, for we keel as good stock
as goes over a bar in this town. ,
" 'Nothing at all tho matter with it,
sir,' he said, as ho throw down a quar
ter and started out. 'Stranger,' says I,
'if 'taint intrudin' on good nature, I'd
like to ask you why you didn't pour out
some o' that brandy and drink it?
" 'I did' says ho laughing. "That's
my way of drinkin'. I claim that I get
moro out of three drops of brandy than
most other nion do from a whole glass.
Now I drop it on my tonguo and shut
my mouth tight. I've got all tho taste
of it that a man could get if ho drank a,
pint. Then I take in a good long breath
and let It out through my nose. That
carries the fumes of tho brandy to my
brain, and I get all tho oflects that I
would from a largo drink. 'It wakes
mo up and makes mo good nntured. My
pulse beats a little faster, and I havo an
appetite for breakfast. Now. if I'ddrlnk
a gill or a half gill it would havo been
a positively injury to my stomach, es
pecially as I had eaten nothing. In
stead of being exhilarated I would havo
been slightly drunk until it wore oft.
Now I claim that my way is tho only
way to drink heavy and strong liquors.
With that he went out, an' I've boon
thiukiu' of it all day, an' I think ho was
kiddin' me. I'vo seen people drink in
all kinds of ways, but his was a now
ono to me."
So pcoplo havo difi'ercnt ways of tak

"Well, I should say so. Now with
whisky. Thero is ono old business niau
who, to my certain knowledge, has
taken three gallons of whisky a day foi
over ten years. Ho always comes in at
tho same time ench day, pours out hit
glass about a third full, squeezes a little
lemon into it and sips it down as if il
tasted good to him. Ho will bo two oi
three minutes drinking it."
"That samo man," continued tho bar
keeper, "has a son who is a steady, hard
drinker. Ho always takes whisky, ami
has for thrco or four years. Ho pours
out a glass almost full, but won't smell
of it if ho can help it. Ho acts as if ho
didn't like it. Sometimes ho won't
drink it for threo or four minutes, and
then ho swallows it as if it was medicine.
He tolls mo he hates the bus to and smell
of it. It always sickens him, and I'vo
seen him walk away and leave it after
it was poured out. He's clear down
now, poor devil, and he hits tried timo
and timo again to break off drinking.
You wouldn't boliovo It, but young mou

Think it manly, you know, to order
whisky straight.' Thero is a great dif

seen two Germans come in nnd sit down

an hour or two good solid enjoyment
