Washington, July 6.— In the execu­
tion of the broad plans for tbe instruc­
tion of our naval officers in squadron
drills and combined maneuvers, formu­
lated by Secretary Herbert,the summer
drills of the North Atlantic squadron,
which w ill begin on the 15th iust.,
w ill find their counterpart in a series
of squadron movements, target practice
and fleet drills, to be conducted by the
Pacific station by Adm iral Beardsley.
Because many of the ships naturally
attached to his station, have been nec­
essarily transferred to the Atlantic sta­
tion, Adm iral Beardsley w ill not have
as many vessels available for his drills
as w ill Admiral Bonce, on tile Atlantic
coast. Consequently, in order to be
able to carry out a programme of any
value, from an educational standpoint,
he must make the nioBt of such ships as
he can command, and it w ll be impos­
sible, therefore, this season to w ith­
draw any of the ships, even temporar­
ily, from the squadron to attend the
local celebrations at various points on
tbe Paoiflo coast, as bas been custom­
ary in the past.

Salem. July 7 .- A n interested audi-
ence this evening assembled at Lmty
church, to bear what ^ e Rev. Mr.
Copeland had to say of
The New
Woman, Selected by God to End the
World.”
Tbe lecture was one of
scholastic merit, and was enthusiastic­
ally received. In fact, one of the very
best Mr. Copeland bas ever delivered.
The text was: "F o r the Marriage of
the Lamb bas come, and his wife has
made herself ready, and I, John, saw
the holy city coming down from God
as a bride adorned for her husband.1
In beginning bis leoture, the speaker
called attention to the very general ex­
pectation of the end of the world at the
close of the century,
prevailing
amongst all religions, and sustained by
men of soience, as well as by preachers
of the second advent. He quoted many
prophecies proclaiming that the end of
the world was at baud, some of which
are new and gathered from ancient
books. He quoted from the Bagavad
Gita, the words of Krishna: “ I pro­
duce myself among creatures, when­
ever there is a decline of virtue, and an
insurrection of vice in the world.
That such conditions prevailed was de­
tailed at length in tbe strongest pos­
sible language. The darkness of the
picture was relieved by calliug atten­
tion to the coming reign of woman in
literature, art, society and politics.
The causes of woman’s emancipation
were indicated, and her influence in
every department of life depicted. A
new race was in the prooess of forma­
tion, which should develop the feminine
side, and be fit to use those inner forces
which the “ X ” ray and the Keeley
motor indicate are to replace the com­
mon electricity.
"The past centuries have witnessed
a steady progress in the delicacy and
spirituality of the forces used: From
horse-power to water-power; from wa­
ter-power to steam; from steam to elec­
tricity; from electricity to etherio
vibration, which latter cannot now be
used, for man is yet too material and
selfish, and would maae this power
which dwarfs electricity only rivet the
despotism of the few over the many
beyond any power to break. But when
the old dispensation has ended, then
may we have the use of the new foroe.
We have seen what changes have re­
sulted, from the substitution of steam
for horse and water-power; we are
witnessing tbe changes made by re­
placing steam by electrioity, shortening
the hours of labor and making life
easier to live. What may we not look
for, when we replace eleotricity with
interetheric vibration, or as Bulwer
Lyttin, in his “ Coming Race,” calls
it, ‘ V ril,’ which he very significantly
places in the hands of woman, ail 1
which she uses to restrain selfishness
of the male part of the race, not yet
raised to her high standard of morals.”
The lecture concluded with the fol­
lowing sentences; Lo, the sign of the
Son of Mail iu the heavens, ending the
language of barbarism. Clad iu new
bodies made out of finer elements, be­
cause born of love, those souls have
passed
through many incarnations
marked with much suffering and tribu­
lation, shall dwell in the New Jerusa­
lem; which shall not be here or there;
but everywhere. Of this city the in­
dwelling God, now in control of the
old-time, cruel and rapacious animal,
who preferred darkness to light, shall
be the glory.
Washington, July 7.— The total en­
rollment in educational institutions of
all kinds in the United States for the
school year of 1S93-94 was nearly 16,-
000,000, according to the report for the
year just promulgated by Commissioner
of Education Harris. Of these all but
400,000 wore in the regular schools, an
increase of about half a million for the
year. The percentage of total popula­
tion enrolled in the schools was 20.53.
School property gained in value durimr
the year over #26,000,000, and 1.103
more schoolhouses were in operation.
In the past twenty years tbe South has
increased 54 per cent in population,
but its school attendance has increased
180 per cent, more than twice as fast
as the population.
In the twenty
years from 1874 to 1894, the value of
school property in the South increased
from #16,000.000 to #51,000,000.
Higher education bas also made a
