BFtECKINUIDGll AND THE CHURCH
. Some of the papers are making much
fun ove.1 Breckenrldge's public conic
slon of penitence, and his restoration to
standing In the Presbyterian church of
his native city. They pivfess to see li
this '.a political scheme to IHp Mr
Kre.-kcnr'ldtre lit his candidacy for con
gress, and charge that It waa Intended
to relievo members of that church whi
. happen to voto for him next fall from
the npiK-aranco Gf Inconsistency, and
the load of a troubled conscience. In
such a charge there Is gross Injustice
to the church, and perhaps to Mr.
Breckenridge, nnd It Is carrying cither
political or social prejudice entirely toe
far to suit tho taste of all fair-minded
people. What are churches for, but to
lecelve and encourage penitent sud re
formed slnners7 Tho church has noth
Ing to do with the sincerity of Mr
Brokenridge'a profesidons; It la enough
that he says ho is penitent and piayp
for forgiveness. On thla alone he Into
tho right to claim, and claiming, ti
receive, the fellowship of all Christian
people. The question of his sincerity
the church cannot, dare nott determine.
That la a matter between Mr. Rreckcn-
rldgo and his Maker. If this be not
true, then Binvly the churches do not
follow tho Icbmoiis of the Master on the
duty of Chrirttlnn charity nnd forgive
It Is recalled that from the beginning
to the end of tho Harrison administra
tion there was not one charge of any
conscquctH'0 affecting the Integrity of
any officer connected with the govern
ment, or any member of the senate,
circulated In Washington or printed In
the public press, while under the pres
ent reform admlnUu-atlon hurdly a day
elapses when some fresh evidence of
corruption la not discovered at the cap
ital, and telegraphed all over the coun
try by the newspaper correspondents.
It will be observed. Uxy that none of
these charges are put In circulation by
Republicans; they all seem tu emanata
from Independent or Democratic
sources. The following- from" a leading

"I am afraid, after nil tho millions
that have been spent upon It, that the
Manchester ship canal will never pay
expenses," sail Percy Oglethrope, an
English cotton buyer, at the Southern.
The opening of the canal on January 1
was a big affair, and one of the ships
In the procession that day was a cotton
carrier, the Ohio, from New Orleans.
Several ships, loaded at Mobile, New
Orleans and Galveston, with cargoes for
Manchester direct, have made the trip
since, and as Manchester and vicinity
uses the largest porUon of American
cotton, the opening of the canal was an
affair of considerable Interest to the
cotton states. Tho canal Is wider than
the 8uea canal, and when dredged out
will have a depth or 2G feet; neverthe
less, It will never bo navigable, with Its
present dimensions, for large trading
steamers. The Sues canal has neither
current nor wind to disturb U. heno
steamers con safety navigate It which
could not safely traverse the English
canal, because, with their length and
alio, they would have to acquire a
speed to give them steerage way In
compatible with safe navigation. This
fact seems to have been oerlooked
alike by the engineers and the enthusi
astic promoters cf the enterprise. It Is
true that small steamers 'tramps' they
are called con make the trip all right.
Such boats are the Ohio and the Ven
ango, which latter boat recently carried
a cargo of cotton from Galveston. But
It took the Venango II days to make a
trip which a. regular liner would liavr
made In 18 days, and, of course, time
la a valuable factor to consider. The
tramp would never do for the Indian
or Pacific? trade, and. besides, the In
surance ratos on them are so much
higher that It would equalise the dif
ference In freight rates by reshlpplng at
Liverpool. Anyhr nMectUMi is that
steamers cannot procure cargo ballast
at Manchester, and have to procure It at
A STRANGE CRAFT.
Count Festetlcs de Tolna is to hav
rival In the trade of the south seas, if
the story of the object of the cruise of
the schooner Kusslloff, as told by her
captain, F. Vchling, Is true. The
schooner Balled today for a supposed
port called Guam, which means In the
parlance of the seas anywhere that for
tune takes the ship. She went out
through the Heads in the tow of a naph
tha launch, and when outside the bar
headed away for the south. Before sail
Ing Capt. Vehling said that he was
bound on a cruise among the Islands of
the Pacific and when he said It sea
faring men laughed as they looked at
his vessel.' Tho Kusslloff Is only 15 tons
register, and she would not be able to
carry sufficient goods to make a trading
trip profitable, even If she should not
bring up at the bottom of the ocean.
Tho vessel was formerly a small steam
er, built and used as a tender among
tha fishing boats of Alaska. When her
usefulness there was ended she wns
blown up on the shore In a gale and
VehllriK became the possessor of the
wreck for a few dollars, because she
was net considered worth patching up.
Vehling trimmed up the old hull, tore
out tho machinery and rigged her as a
schooner. Shortly afterward he and the
ship disappeared from Alaska, and a
few months later he came Into this port
alone in his ship. He said that he had
hired a man to come down on the ves
sel as the crew, but the night before he
was to leave the man was ashore and
In a storm that came up that night he
was blown out to sea. He was without
any aids to navigation except the face
of a clock, which he made serve as a
compass and sextant, and In due time
reached his destination. On the pres
ent cruise of the Kusslloff the captain
his wife and three children and one man
constitute the crew. The small hold Is
claimed to be full of trading supplies,
and Cnpt. Vehling said he would not
come back until he made a fortune and
run Count Festetlcs out of the bimlness.

discovery of this product, and the
