Grsnd Havpn, B! B eta, | Mich., Swept ' by ITvE HUNDRED HOMELESS PEOPLE »t si WKDME8DAY, OCTOBER 2. 1SB9. Whfin ar« tho flood disasters of 1839 to »'.:-p? This from Jnpan ia Uie most ap- of any. Tho Philadelphia Ledger calls on gentlemen of tho navy to translate thoir "knots" into miles, to let tho public know thai 6 knots make 7 miles, and that when tho Baltimore made 20.9 knota an hour, she traveled not quits 23J miles an hour. President Harrison has given assurance that there ia about him nothing of the Socialist or Nationalist, as the .fash- Ion IB to call it in Now England. He told the committee from tho western waterways convention that while he was in favor of Improved navigation to the utmost extent, yet he was firmly of opinion that the people along the Mississippi should build their own levees. Nothing Bhowa the advance in naval gtma and ships so much as tho case of the thirteen old monitors left over from oar civil--war.- Twenty-five years ago they were considered almost invulnerable for coast defense. Their iron plates are five inches thick, and on the turrets eleven inches thick. Now a ball from an enemy's 6-inch gun could easily pierce their armor at a distance of several miles. The reason we have so little navy is because other nations have gone past us and left us. tho The Mr, Robort Ray Hamilton hag boon jjpre&tly pitied. b('<;au30 ho -chivalrously^ married h woman, knowinglier cliar- Kitcr to—be-off—<x>lor,-aod—tlien_»aa,. ' »ystamatically deceived by the woman, who lived in a constant row with him besides. But hero is the view of it taken by a gray'eyed little typewriter: "It served him right, and I don't pity him a bit. What did ho want to marry, a creature like that for, when there were so many nice women he could have got?" By the way, this story about Mr. Robert Ray Hamilton recalls & certain escapade in the life of hia distinguished great-grandfather, Alexander Hamilton. Growth of Catholicism. Cardinal Gibbons, of Baltimore, has called attention anew to the marvelous growth of the Roman Catholic church In the United States. A hundred years ago, in V7SO, there were in the whole country-only 40,000 Roman Catholics, including the priesthood, and only one college for the education of their ministry. There are now 9,000,000 belonging to that denomination, 8,000 clergymen, and 10,000 churches and chapels. There are 650 schools and academies for the higher education of the faithful, many hundred asylums, and lower schools without number. A hundred years ago the 10th of November next the first bishop of the Roman church in this country was consecrated. He was Bishop Carroll, of Baltimore. Tho cardinal used, these Words further: I rejolca In the growth and progress of the Catholic religion, because I am convinced that the growth of the Catholic faith to Ujts country will, more than auy other means, promote the welfare and stability of our American Institutions.

Site -:• Cornet •:• EaiJ Scenery! Tlie United States and Canada. There ia no doubt but some measure must IIP taken in tho matter of the commercial relations of the Dnitcd Stotea mid Canada. There is a powerful and growing sentiment on both sides of the line in favor of freer trade in sorno shape between the two countries. Each wants what the other has to sell. In 1888 the Imports into Canada from the United States were $9.000.000 greater than from Great Britain. Josiah Quincy recently prepared a paper on tho subject of trade between -the^two^oountries^which-statea-the-case- very clearly. He said there were three ways of securing freedom of trade. The first was by political union, making one Tnst country of the United States and Canada. That is not practicable at present certainly. &Ir. J. H. Beadle, one of whose strong points aa a newspaper writer U hard fact, in a tour of Canada during the summer found the annexation sentiment there comparatively feeble. ' • The second possible agreement mentioned by Mr. Quincy Ss commercial union, tho maintenance of a common tariff by the two countries against all other countries, "and a common internal revenue system of taxation, with some equitable division of the receipts." This is the popular idea at present, perhaps, In both countries. --But- flueh-a union would~cripple the treaty making power of both countries •with other' countries. For Instance, If tha United States wished to conclude an agreement of amity and commerce with, say, Mexico, she would have to consult Canada, and thus the treaty making power of the president and senate would be impaired and our government shorn d its dignity and prestige. Again, if the United States wished to make the allghtest change in her internal rovenua lawa, under commercial union it "would , b* necessary to obtain the consent of tit* {parliament at Ottawa to that chango. This Uio people of the United State* would not submit to, Tlie tliirJ kiud of agreement 8**jm* te Mr. Quiocy tha only cma that is dtmi- aH« or possible, Tula to tha tamiy oJ rwjipi'Oiiitt, "adtautfog some or nil of feba provSucto ot «ilM»r country into tb* and Hiram Pott.H, editor of Tho Courier-Jounml. Tho flames also extended to the block immediately opposite the Cutler housi', destroying the residence of Mrs. Squires and the store of W. C. Sheldon, occupied by Mrs. Jones, milliner. Mure llenltlenceB Dcntrnyod. The conflagration, still extending, destroyed the residences of George D. Sanford, postmaster ot Grand Hnveii; Ciipt McCullum, of the lake slimmer J. C. Ford, ot the Escanubn line; Mr. Kedzie, editor of The Grand Haven Herald; Mr. Van Lopick, grocer; Mr. Verlorker, Richard Connoll, Jacob Noinire, nnd Clnirloy Conger, proprietor of The Grand Haven Tribune, who lost two houses. Mrs. Lcland also lost two bouses, and Jacob Van Derver one house, occupied by Mrs. Thorp. Tho large livery establishment connoclel with the Cutler bouse was also diwtrnycd, but fortunately the horses were reauuod. . Mr. Monroe's barn and that ot Mrs. Slayton were entirely consumed The Work of Four Hun in. ' In four hours from the time tho flre was first discovered about forty buildings on four of the principal blocks of tbe city wore burned to the ground, and nothing remained but a few bara walls and chimneys. The Cut- br bouse had long been tbe prido of western Michigan. It was erected In 1872 by D. Cutler, at a cost of $i)0,OOL>. It wns a handsome structure of four stories. Tbe insurance on the hotel and furniture • wns only tW, 000. The residence of Mr. Cutler wns built in 1887 at a cost of about $10.oo;t. It was furnished in a costly manner and contained a well selected library, a very extensive collection of pictures and bric-a-brac, tbe ae- cumulation of years of travel by the various niomberj of the family. Tbe greater portion of this valuable collection was destroyed. Ail Appeal to tbe Public. The city council held a special meeting yesterday morning, presided over by Mayor Kirby, and adopted resolutions sotting forth that 500 people bad boon burned out of house and home at a cost of /nearly $1,000,000. It is pointed out that these sufferer* are among Ihftf* least able to bear the loss, and that immediate aid is therefore needed. The mnyoi' was directed to issue an appeal to the public, which he did shortly after. Tlio appeal >» chiefly for money to aid in rebuilding burned homes. His honor will receive contributions.

They stayed all the same and an enjoyable time was bad. Will has promised not to do so again and he says that Wedding Is coming off this week sure. Coleta was a little surprised to-day by the appearance of a band of Mexicans having in their possession a monkey and two bears which for the sum of one dollar were made to dance and perform many tricks while their dusky owners chanted a Mexican song; meanwhile tbe women and children were begging from house to bouse, singing songs for a nick'.e, and chewing and smoking equal to any man.

It ia tlio largest and handsomest establishment of tlio kind in Boulogne, and has (tie reputation of supplying tho beat bread in the city. It has aince passed out of the possession of the family and is now kept by an Englishman named Gibson. Coquelin, being rather given to bumptiousness with his comrades, has more than once had his very respectable but unaristocrutic origin thrown in his teoth in tho course of a dispute. Oiico, before he left tlio Comediu Francaise, he got into a quarrel with His distinguished fellow actur, AVunus, who was originally a private- soldier, and was compelled when in thut capacity to wrve us valet to one of hi.f tiiijujrior oiiicers.
