Mr. Allen writes: "The publication of the custom house statistics for the nscal year ended Juno 30 is likely to cause a renewal of tho discussion as to what becomes of our foreign trade balances. "This year our excess of exports of merchan dise will amount to ab6ut $665,000,000, but in stead of getting any cash for this enormous bal ance, it appears that wo have paid out some $20,000,000 more than wo received. Some time ago it was claimed that wo were lending a good part of this balance to foreign countries, but in a letter to the Times of May 8, I disputed this claim and contended that our annual foreign debts for in terest dues, freights, and tourists' expenses, etc., had grown so largo that thoy moro than offset our enormous trade balances, and hence wo h...

A'sldo from mere differences in the llfo and customs depicted, almost all roaders have notedoctaln almost in definable differences in the essential motif, stylo, and thought of British and American novollsts, apparently -marking two distinct national schools of fiction. Somo of these subtle and less evident differences were lately im pressed upon Mr. W D.

When Mr. Howplls uses the latter word to char acterize the American novel, ho is re ferring to the classic novel of Haw thorne and other writers of interna tional and assured reputation, not to what ho regards as tho ephemeral work of the "matinee school" of "Janice Meredith," "Richard Carvel," "The R...

No ono can say how serious it may become, but indications point to a prolonged contest between the steel trust .and organized labor. Some who ought to sympa thize with tho employees profess to see nothing of importance at issue, but the fact is that tho contest, while apparently over an abstract prin-r ciple, it really involves the right of the labor ing men to organize. It is undoubtedly the purpose of the trust to destroy labor organiza tions and the purpose will bo relentlessly pur sued if the time seems propitious. It is strange that any laboring man should fail to under stand the nature of a private monopoly or give any support whatever to the enormous consoli dation of capital whichis now going on. It means death to the wage earner as well as the destruction of industrial independence. In a test of en...

This speech of Webster's was delivered in commemoration of the first settlement of New England. Webster began by speaking lightly of that regard for ancestry "which nourishes only a weak pride," but he referred to that "moral and philosophical respect for our an cestors which elevates the character and im proves the heart," and he said that next to the sense of religious duty and moral feeling ho hardly knew "what should bear with stronger obligation on a liberal and enlightened mind than the consciousness of alliance with excel lence which has departed; and a consciousness, too, that in its acts and conduct, and even in its sentiments and. thoughts it may be actively operating on...

'T' The Commoner. Dr. Lambert Defends Jefferson. Rev. L. A. Lambort, defending- Jefferson, and tlio Declaration, of Independence, said: We come now to the meaning of the word "equal" as used in the Declaration. That word seems to be the cause of a great deal of confusion in the minds oi some people. We see not why it shouul be, since the Declaration itself indicates clearly its meaningthat the equality asserted is equality in those natural rights of every man as against the encroachments of his fellow man, of society and of government; rights which spring from his nature, his personality, his responsibility to God, and his destiny. These rights belong to him because he is a man, and they are equal in all men because they are men. All are equal in the right of immunity from unjust aggression. Dr. Brownson, in one of his profound essays, gees down to the theological reason of this equal ity assorted in the Declaration a reason which we may well suppose did not enter into Jefferson's m...

'- - f Editing by The latest attempt at editing a Injunction. newspaper by injunction was a failure, but the attempt is a straw indicating the trend of the times under present conditions. Samuel Cohen of Boston is a member of the social set and naturally averse to haying his name connected with any thing smacking of scandal. He was forced to become a party to a rather disgraceful suit at lawv and dreading publicity applied to the courts for an injunction preventing the news papers from mentioning his name in connection with the case. The application was denied, but the mere fact such an application was made is not an encouraging sign. In view of the fact that a complaisant judge enjoined a minis ter from praying with a lotof striking miners it was not too much to expect that Mr. Cohen would be able to find a judge willing to under take the task of editing a newspaper by injunc-tion- Experienced a Change of Heart.
