Littlefield, of Maine, before the American Bar Association at Denver. Mr. Littlefield criticised the Supremo Courts insu lar decisions, and declared those decisions to be "without a parallel in our judiciary history." While disclaiming any disposition to reflect upon the court, Mr. Littlefield said: "I feel bound to say it seems to me that they ivere profoundly impressed -with the supposed con sequences of an adverse decision." One law yet protested against Mr. Littlefield's discourse in the presence of tho American Bar Associa tion. That gentleman, Mr. Adolph Moses, Baid: "I wish to record my note of dissent to the general applause which followed the presentation of the insular cases by Mr. Littlefleld.

If it is important that we discard bimetal lism with all possible emphasis, it is important because it is necessary that the people know exactly where we stand. And in order that they may know where we stand, when we have discarded our former position, it is important that we espouse the single gold standard. The Democratic party is either in favor of bimetallism, or it is in favor of the single gold standard. It is true that there is no "private entrance," properly speaking, to either of these questions, and yet the very men who insist upon an abandonment of the Kansas City plat form are unwilling to admit plainly...

Titles do not by any means make the man or the teacher and it is not a bad sign when even the professors of Mr. Rockefeller's famous school return to the good old fashioned designation of "mister." When the present King of England ranked as the Prince of Wales, one chaplain and four honorary chaplains looked out for his religious welfare. Now, as King of England, this same man is the proud possessor of sixty-five spiritual guides. .Two "reverend deans of the Chapel Royal," four ."reverend clerks of the King's Closet," two "domestic chaplains," fourteen "chaplains in ordinary," thirty-three "honorary cha...

The people of Germany are too intelligent to require at the handB of China's representative the humiliation that the "kowtowing" ceremony would impose upon him.
