afe more and larger prizes ,to he
gnlned by an acute nud ehxjuent dl.sci
pie of the legal art than are open to
the medical man or the minister. In
this country and (treat Britain the in
cines of the foremost advocates and
of attorneys In lucnitlre practice for
the most art overshadow the yearly
earnings f 4be lest-known-r physi

greater extent those of our spiritual
a I risers. Occasionally one bearsof

nod Sir William Jeuner are cases Ja
HIut; but these re exceptions, and
sums accumulated , by meli al men
cannot be comparel either. in mralKr
oc magnitnde to tlie colossal amounts
amassed by tlie members of the legal
fraternity. - When, however, the aver
age Incomes of these three classes of
the community are considered, their
re hi rive position in tJreat Britain and
the United States will tie found to
differ. Viewed thus, in the Pnlted
Kingdom the 1ergynian Is at, the 4op
of the list, the" lawyer second and
the doctor last, while here the lawyer
or doctor gets a larger Kha re of the
'Kmres and fishes,' and the minister
lias to le content with the crumbs.'
The average income of a 'physician
tu large cities on thi cont iucnt may

though rather higher than In Chicago
and in other American large cities,
doe not greatly exceed Jit! yearly.
Tlie minister averages la the city per-,
Imps $lit. and In the country cer
tainly not niori than yearly.
At regar1s living extenset. both the
lawyer and minister have an advan

j Nevertheless the lot of the medical
Iffeginner compared with that of a,
pastor in a like situation has its com
pensations. He is at least more or
less independent. The l minister, on
the contrary. I s.a mle iermitted
to exercise his own will but to a lim
it ed degree, and often 4s doomed to go
through a lifetime of toil subservient
to the caprices of censorious elders
and deacons. An excellent descrip

decrease in medical Incomes is indu

To Communicate with the American
Eepresentatlre in Pek in Troops '
from Manila. !
WASHINGTON, July 28. Today
brought forth the usual crop of edicts
and reports from various quarters, aud
the usual visit from Minister Wusto
the State Department, bearing direct
ly upon the welfare of the Ministers
in Pekin. This constantly growing
mass of assertion is beginning to have
a cumulative effect upon skeptics, anil
there la noticeably, a more hopeful
view taken of state affairs today. Be
yond the fact that It is scarcely con
ceivable that the Chinese authorities
should : persist In repeating and
strengthening these stories up to the
rapidly approaching moment when the
whole truth most lie disclosed by other
agencies, it a pieared,upon careful
consideration of the reports, that there
really, was a little more ground for
hope as to the safety of Mr. Conger
ami his colleagues at Pekin, today,
than yiere was yesterday. ; The de
pressing fact is always in mind that
the Chinese authorities, by their state
ments, are able to communicate with
the Legat loners, but for some myster
ious reason do not permit these tin
fori una tes to communicate with their
jjwn Government. Minister Wu's ex
planation, that the Chinese met ins is
are different from our own, is scarcely
sufficient for the official here.
The Minister. . however. 1 honestly;
trying to get further communications
through from Mr. Conger, and it may
be that success in this undertaking
will afford him a brilliant vindication.
While the positive statement Is made
that it is not tlie presint intention to
send any more troops from Manila to
China, at the same time It is known
that all contingencies have been cau
vasscd aud that If an emergency
should arise in China which made it
Imperative to have additional troops,
they will lie drawn from the Philip
pines for temjiorary duty,' at least.

rants were Issued' today, at Weston,
for the arrest of 'George Reynolds, of
Weston: J. W. Dykes, of Milton, ami
G. C. Moore, one of the Kentucky of

J. B. Rowlin, the wife of the man
whose attempted extradition caused
numerous exciting Incidents lately.
Reynolds ivas arrested, and a constable
started for Weston for Dykes, when
District Attorney llailey instructed
Justice Wood , to release Reynolds on

recently secured a state warrant from
Gov, T. T. Geer, for J. B. Bowlin, upon

Exists War Between tlie Two by the
Beginning of November. -
New York, July 28. A dispatch to
the Trlbuue, from IonJlon. says; The
sky! Is so heavily clouded with the
mystery or China, the interminable
guerilla warfare in South'. Africa and
the famine in India, that It is hardly
necessary for Earl Wemyss to Imrrow
trouble over tlie the eliaiicos of an in
vasion of England next NovenilxT and
the Insufficiency, of. the home defenses.
Lord Salsibnry has attempted to break
the force of these outcries of alarm
by a Jest aliout danger Xroni shooting
stars in that month, but Ixinl Uose
bery lias rebuked him for illtimed
optimism f - : 5

Ix)nls yesterday has reflected the omi
nous talk which" has lieen going on In
the city for ereral days aUmt tbe
chances of la sudden attack frrnu
France, when the home defenses are
the weakest ; . Proliably these alarms
indh-ale the excessive strain to which
Englishmen have been subjected dur
ing the last ten months.
Enormous purchases of. Welsh coal
by the Paris government and well
authenticated reports that Hover and
other channel fortification hare been
secretly surreyed and ; charted by
trench naval experts aud reports
made npon the defenses of Llvernool
and other ports, are facts uon wliich
the alarmists lay stress, but the stock

sinister speculations. ,
