The necropolis of ancient time signified the principal or only burial place for a large and densely populated community, where interments had been made for thousands of years without visible changes. . Ws trace its origin to a very remote time. . Ur, the oldest city known in his tory, located on the great plains of Mesopotamia, had its necropolis, which William Burnet Wright describes in his notable "Ancient Cities" as the City of Saints. No other cemeteries of unquestionable antiquity have been discovered else where in Mesopotamia. In Southern Babylonica are vast cities of the dead. Miles upon miles of corpses, inclosed in clay coffins, the skeleton lingers clutching copper drinking cups, and metal plates, upon which traces of food are still annarent Interspersed with sepulchers of masonry, the coffins lie side by aide in strata, one above another, beginning below the natural surface of the ground, rising at times sixty feet above it threaded with drains skillfullv arranged to carry off moisture and fines to allow the escape of Rases, in number beyond all computation. These cities of the dead, more populous than the cemeteries of the Nile, extending un measured distances into the deeert, their boundaries as yet unknown, were probably the Campo Santo to which for two millenniums the dead were brought upon the water-ways of the Tigris and Euphrates. With greater accuracy we are enabled to describe the vast Necropolis of ancient Thebes, where a highly refined art culture CON8TBUCRD KAGKHTCEKT TOMBS in the natural rocks and erected mausoleums which, up to the present day, produces admira tion ana wonaer. The origin of these colossal cemeteries had been based upon a deep religious tendency. The Egyptians firmly believed that every human soul was a part of the world's soul, Osiris, with whom it was reunited after the death of the bodv. to be called thenotforth Osiris Heaven and earth and depth, these were the three groat realms of the Egyptian cosmos. On the mighty ocen which flows around the heavenly dome the sun comes, riding in a boat, wtucn is drawn by planets and stars. On it cruise the great constellations in their ships, and there is the realm of the departed gods, who sit enthroned over the heavenly ocean, under the stars in eternal peace. Admiasion to the great stream' takes place in the east, where the sun-god rises every morning from the dampness as a new-born child. Hu man beings hv on the surface of the earth, tnk ing part of the three great cosmic realms. The soul is given to them from the heavens above, from whence the light flows; their body, the matter, belongs to the earthly stage of life; the shape and outward form, by which one man differs from another to the view; the shadow belongs to the depth. At the death of a man the soul. bodv. and shadow separate from each oth er: the soul returns to its starting point heaven. as a part of God (Osiris), while the body, formed of earth, is to be delivered up to earth again, and the shadows descends into depth, the realm of shadows. The gate to it was believed to be situated in toe west at the mountain or me evening sky; there whore the sun dailv sets, where it dios. Hence the reciprocal relation between rising and setting, between coming ana departing, between being born and dying, iue carer ul PBESEBVATION OF TBK BOOT AFTEB DEATH. both in regard to its destruction from within by process of decomposition, and by aocidont or violence from without, was the principal condition according to the oldest Egyptian teachings (established by the prieetnood for sanitary reasons) for the speedy deliverance 6f the soul, and therewith for its temporally appointed reunion with the fountain head of light and Koodneoa; for both were thought to be inseparable from each other. The moral influence which the ancient institutions of a Necropolis exerted upon a nation's prog. ress in civilization has been clearly defined by virtuous men and philosophers of all ages. Groeks and Romans, recognizing this supreme muuence in tne aeveiopmoui or art ana science, adopted at an early age the establishment of similar institutiens, which for thousands of years proved to be a school of incalculable value. . lieing in tne undisputed cnarge of the priesthood, who stood at the head of all branches of education, the Necropolis, with its numerous temples, specially devoted to public instruc tions, naturally became tne pride or the nation, with the decay and ruin of those great old em- 5 ires in Asia a gradnal neglect and careless in-ifferenee took possession of the once so famous institutions, which later on became almost obliterated by the new light of the Christian era. However, Saracens Moors, and afterward the Romans, carried in time the fruits of civilization onto the shores of the Woe torn barbarians. Centuries passed by with wondorful progress, irresistibly forcing their wav toward the setting sun. But while the beneficial influence of a Necropolis was acknowledged, TBS DirrUtSKT HACKS of the present generation had yet no time allowed, in their struggle for supremacy, to adjust the fundamental principles of that old and glorious institution to the present views of civilized life. , London, with its four millions of inhabitants. never had a necropolis. Years passed, it neg- lected the opportunity to provide for it, simply froiU'Wftrt of sufficient foresight Now the vast city, driven from one grave yard to another, in utter despair to secure s permanent and creditable reMug-placs for its multitude, begins to erect jematories. The Battersea Cemetery one of ahessiliardsomegt nd largest of London Ajrnet Ties, controlled by a burial board elected by ths vestry of Battersea) also the large Tooting Cemetery, managaln by a burial board elected by the vestry of Lambeth were years ago declared a nuisance and their removal for sanitary reasons demanded. It has been asserted that for every new eennrtery laid out in the suburbs of London two ortmars old ones have to be closed, while the distance from the center of the metropolis increases in each instance. Paris, with two and a half, land Berlin, with one and a quarter million people, share the fate of London, as neither. tf them had the sagacity and foresight to secure in time the foundation for a necropolis; and the difficulty to provide and arrange tho necsssary requirements for such an institution increases with the growth of the metropolis. Howwvpr familiar the word necropolis may be to our cemetery officials, tho fact is that not one institniMn deserving this title exists at present . ,.A , .

The united and constantly increasing interest which a grand metropolitan community naturally must, nave in s necropolis, settles all these chronic evils perma- nnnuy. A necropolis demands the centraliza tion of burial grounds, as it proposes to unite in one common center all denominations. securing for each the benefit of a most complete and nerfect arrangement for access and com munication, which otherwise would be impossible to obtain from all points of a widely ex tended metropolis.

CICERO'S ANNEXATION. A Diversity of Rentlratint on the Qnnntlotv Is inicago avoratne to xnm scneuieT Whether or not the whole or only a part of the township of Cicero will be annexed to the city of Chicago is a mooted question. There is undoubtedly a strong sentiment in favor of an nexation existent in Central Park and Brighton, while in some other villages of the township a strong sentiment has grown up against it The recent action of the citizens of Central Fark and Brighton in circulating petitions to the Town Board asking that they be annexed to Chicago by vote, seemingly resolves the question into the statement that Central Park and Brighton have determined upon being annexed to Chicago whether the remaining portions of the town of Cicero oome in or not MB. K. a CONWAY, who resigned from the Town Board of Craefo last month, is thoroughly pouted as to the situation, and in a conversation with him yesterday afternoon a reporter for Thb Imteb Oceah learned the present status of affairs. Said he: "The citizens of Central Park and Brighton have signed those petitions largely, and no doubt they will be granted the privilege of annexing themselves to Chicago by the township. " "How does Moreland feel in regard to the annexation question" "Moreland. west of Forty-eighth street. I am told, is practically against annexation. East of Forty-eighth and west of Forty-sixth streets there seems to be some question as to which way tho majority will be; but probably the line will be drawn at Forty-sixth street, or Belt Line avenue, as it is now known." "And how about Austin?" "Well, there is some sentiment worked up there in favor of annexation, but, as near as I have been able to ascertain, I would Judge it to be A VKKT SMALL BATIO." "How do the residents of Oak Park feel about it?" "I do not think there is s single individual in either Oak Park or Richland that would favor the annexation of the township." "What view of the matter do you entertain?" "At the present time 1 do not think any portion of Cicero, unless it may be Brighton Park, would receive benefit from annexation to Chicago. I arrive at this conclusion through the theory that the City of Chicago is not in search of fields for a display ur public philanthropy, and that Chicago willonlv extend water mains and sewers to an extent tnat will be profitable to the corporation. Some fifteen vears ago Chicago, by a vote of the people of Cicero, was granted a .trip of land two miles wide on the eastern side of the township (excepting Brighton Park at the south end of the strip), and during the intervening period she has made no improvements save those of the Washington boulevard and that of Madison street by the street railways. The former improvement was made for the convenience of wealthy residents, the truck driver not being allowed to drive his truck over it, and the latter being made for the purpose of securing travel to the trotting parka." ' -You appear to be opposed to the idea of an- ..tillll V' "No, I can't say that I am, but I think that the city of Chicago Bbould properly improve the territorv signed to it fifteen vears ago bv the town of Cicero before extending its limits across the prairies in search of more taxable territory. But if a majority of the tax-payers and legal voters in any portion of the township wish to become almost an umrsfowH quaxtttt in the distant outskirts of Chicago in preference to governing themselves, I certainly could not think of interposing an objection" The sxenire of the residents of Cicero to hare water accommodations within their townshio is said to have been the cause of the question of annexation, - and that has been partially solved by the formation of a company, with a capital awe oi .w.uuu, vim uiat purpose in view. Mr. Conwav is of the opinion that both Briehton aud Central Park will vote favorably this fall on a proposition that the township of Gioera vote taezu into us city oi uucago. UNION YETEILLXS.

The Moming .A'ew of 27th inst criticises Mr. Brennan, of Iowa, for making the statement that ins "displacement oi union soldiers nas gone on at such a rapid rate that the conclusion is forced that loyalty to one's country is the greatest crime possible in tne eyes oi a Democratic administration."

Courting is among the good, old-fashioned. time-honored customs that are dying with the century. It is falling in the wake of the canal- boat, the stage-coach, and the candle. These modes of travel to the various goals of life that are mentioned, were good enough for our fore fathers, but entirely too slow for this generation. Then people took their time, and followed up tneir love-making at tne same gait they followed j the plow-rslow, but sure. The old way still reigns in the oountry and small towns, but in the great cities like Chicago it has vanished like the candle before the electric light, the coach -before the cable-car, and the canalboat before the steam railroads. Courtship is indigenous Xs the oountry; H doesn't thrive in a crowded, dirty, dusty, busy, bustling city. It can't, because of the surroundings. They are uncongenial and utterly devoid of romance. Imagine two loving hearts strolling along the docks of the Chicago River, embracing waists with one hand and holding their noses with the other! That's the reason why men and women matrimonially inclined always leave the city and KTH THEMSKLVKS TO THl COUKTHY, the seaside, or the famous watering places. There, the moonlight (or midnight) strolls on the sand, through forest glades, and delightful dells soon makes friends, then lovers, then husbands and wives. But only a small proportion of the population of a great city can find time and money to carry out this plan, and the others would be compelled to live lives of single wretchedness had not some villainous philanthropist conceived a scheme for mating men and women withont the wearisome and expensive preliminary of a long courtship. This long felt want was filled by the creation of the matrimonial agency, where for a nominal snm can be purchased a wife or husband precisely like a suit of clothes from a tailor or a bonnet from a milliner, with satisfaction guaranteed or money refunded. In the old world the matrimonial agency is a high art institution in the school of villainy and rice. There the play is made for fools with money, the plucking of whom is not to be re garded witn mncn pity, it serves them ngut Witnen the following cable dispatch but a few days old: The adventurMi who palmd herself off as the Baronra dn MrK?nnont and made a heap of money bv k-?ping a matrimonial agency on the Avenne M 'Mahon, has Jnt been sentenced to six months' imprinonni-iit The "Barone-V " decoy ducks were ao ingenioas girl named Ellen, who was generally Introduced to would- he benedicts as an orphan with a larr fortune, and the wife of a suburban pastry cook who vaned for the widow of a Rawqan millionaire. Fool and th-ir money, etc Score- of the Baroness' credulous clients had ben inveigled into paying heavy commixaions for the privilege of allying themKlves to these sirens. One witnees testified that he was horrified st a soiree in the Avenue McMahon establishment to hear three gentlemen say that they had all been married to the innocent and immaculate. Ellen whom he had himself proposed to. Ellen was sentenced to four months imprisonment The Russian widow was acquitted. THE MAT&ntOKIAI. AOENCT. as run here, is a trap for the poor and unwary. and in the interest of morality needs some con sideration. It is not enough for the wide-awake business man to glance at thoir advertisements and exclaim "Bah! No one but an idiot would le deceived by such s flimsy device as that" The majority of the people in the world are not wide awake, and it is 1 but humane to remove temptation as much as possible. A lonely young bachelor on The Ixtkb Ockaw. in looking over another newspaper the other day, ran across this advertisement: PERSONAL Matrimonially-inclined ladles and gentlemen will nod at AO. Wabash avenue. Instantly a wild, over-powering matrimonial inclination seized him. He dropped his pencil in the middle of a paragraph, grabbed his hat, and rushed out to find Jio. When he reached the place on Wabash avenue, instead of Deviee or Desntuni girls waiting for mm on the window-sill, he was startled by a sign nearly ten feet long, which read: NURSES' HOME. Z Thinking there must be a mistake somewhere, be hastily referred to the advertisement to see if he hadn't stopped at the wrong place; but no, it was the right number. He rang the bell, ascended a narrow, steep flight of stairs, aud was ushered into the office of the advertiser, a big, burly, broad-shouldered fellow, coolly clothed in s once-white undershirt, dark pants, and red slippers. "Well, want a wife, I suppose," was his cheery salutation. "Yes no ab, that Is Well, what have yon in stock?" stammered the reporter, who was hardly prepared for such a loading question. "Oh, I can suit you." assuringly answered the holder of fates, 'there are over 0,000 members of my bureau matrimonial bureau, yon know, "and moat of them are ladies, more ladies on hand now than men. tun will orvB Ton ax idea of the variety anything yon want Look that over, and when you find one yon think will suit yon. show it to me," With this hs handed ths reporter a neat little four-column, eight-page paper described as "a monthly Journal devoted to the interests of the unmarried and for the benefit of the public generally." Two columns on the first page were devoted to rules and instructions for answering the "personals." These personals were cards from three to twenty lines, advertisements for husbands and wives. No name was appended to them, but each was designated by a number or an initial, or both. There were twenty-five columns of the cards of willing-to-be-wives and husbands, and they averaged fifteen to the oolumn, making nearly 400 in all The reporter smuggled the paper and the following are specimen cards cut from it: A. I AM A TO UNO LADY Tt rars old. S feet a.l30ns fine figure, fair education, and considered good looking: am a resident of Ohio. Would like to correspond with some nice gentleman under So; object matrimony. , Here is the effusion of two bashful vounz girls, evidently boarding school graduates. Dao, WE are two lonely orphan girls brunette. No purer, more awthetie maidens live; We have not reached in age the twenties yet - , Two honest, loving men our hearts we'll give. . We'll answer promptly every letter. Till we accept the silken fetter. 3 : . - - Love. This reads like a Yassar production: - A 86. A LADY, neither young nor middle aged, wishes three correspondents. No. 1, Intellectual; No. X sentimental; No. 8, friendly. Do not inclose stamp; I do not care to be under obligation to reply to letters which do not please me. From the tone of the following, the Boston young woman evidently believes la the efficacy of the agency: . .,- j. CI S.

There is such a resemblance that the reporter was tempted to ssk the editor if he hadn t written most of them himself. "I didn't write one of them." he -answered rather indignantly, as he opened a drawer and pulled out a batch of over one hundred letters in all styles of penmanship, orthography, and phraseology, with an average of ten capital letters for every punctuation point "Every one of those applications is written by a different person, and all will appear in the next issue of bit paper if it issues," he said 'rather sadly. "The postoffice people have refused to ssul my paper as second-class matter, saying it's only an advertising dodge, and I can't afford to put stamps on every one; so I guess Til have to quit publishing it I never made anything, but I've lost over $4,000 on that paper." "How did you publish it?'' "Monthly, at $1 a year or 10 cents a copy. I charged CO cents apiece for the 'personals,' and 10 cents for every answer to them." "How many subscribers have vou?" "Nearly 3,000; they are all members of ths matrimonial bureau." "That means that nearly 5.000 want yon to marry them off to some stranger, doesn't it?" "Well, that's about the size of it But they are not strangers, because I'm an old detective and investigate the character of. all of them. I started the matrimonial agency about two years sgo. and in that time I have brought about exactly 271 marriages." "And how many divorces?" "I don't know of a single instance where my customers got a divorce. The marriages have all been very happy." "What is ths average length of ths courtships?" " fill, THET'BB short. I've had peoplo married in less than an hour after they met That is what the agency's for, to prevent these long, costly courtships and bring the parties right down to business. I won't have anything to do with people unless 1 know they mean to get married at once, unices their inteutions are honorable. There's an agency in this city which, it is alleged, does a very disreputable business. It furnishes friends' for a fee of $L These friends' are said to be the worst kind of women.

I don't say that tne girls are all young and innocent I've thrown men down those stairs for coming here and making such requests. " When he cooled down a little the reporter ventured to ask what class of people was his best customers. "Well, I havs all classes not many mill-onairee and heiresses. but a great many men and women who are rtn as tnuen as $300,lKMi. unlv a few mob ths ago I married a lady on Michigan avenue worth that . amount to a real estate man on LaSalle street, who has $50,04 H) in cash.

I paid $l to put the lady's 'advertisement 'in a Chicago paper, and after she got a wealthy husband she refused to keep her promise to give me a present All the money she gave me was $1, so her marriage cost me $5. If I writs to her for money SHI'S CRT 'BLACK An-' But that same experience has happened to me hundreds of times. They usually write a letter saying they will never forget my kindness in bringing them together, etc., but they never send any money. "If I were to take my revenge by printing the names of all the people I have married it would turn Chicago upside down. There are preachers, doctors, lawyers, bankers, and their widows, mothers, and sisters on the list Yes, sir, ministers have brought and sent their daughters to me to get husbands for them I see you doubt it so I'll just show you the books," and he handed four big books over to the reporter. He had told the truth. On those books were the names "of men and women who go In society in Chicage and are known to be worth considerable money. Their names if published would make a big sensation, although they might not "turn Cnicago npside down." There were doctors, merchants, lawyers, clerks, mechanics, laborers, and even ministers on his books, and marks after the names indicated that they had received letters from women through the agoncy. Soma had secured their wives through him, nut tbe groat majority had been unsuccessful in finding a partner np to date. Tbe majority of the women were clerks in stores and servants. "I don't recommend those store girls to anybody," said the agent "They not much good. Usually they can't cook or sew or sing or play, and their occupation kills them. They are a woak, scrawny, dyspeptic, grumbling lot generally. Most men want a wife who can work and is strong and hearty.

HI think over it and let yon know later," and with this the reporter made his escape. He wanted to visit that West 8ide agency and find out if he.oouldn't get better rates, v When ha arrived there was no sign or auythin .that a ready-made love establishment existt bnt after some trouble he located it in the rear room of the second floor. The room was small and so filled np by a trunk aud a bed that he had to take a second look before he was sure he was in it Then he discov ered a beardless young fellow, perhaps 23 years oldJlacking bis boots. "Ik yon wish to see me on business?" he asked in polished accents probably reflected from his boots. "Yes; I came to see you about this advertisement" and the reporter handed him a clipping which read: . PERSONAL Marriage and friendship made easy; A? we can suit you; frequent success.

"WelL do von want a wife or a friend? 7 The . latter I presume," said the-young man after reaoing nis own advertisement, ins reporter thought hs was very presumptuous, but merely said that hs "didn't cars much which." "Then please fill out these blanks," replied the accommodating young man, handing out two printed forms. . One of them was for s description of "your-self the other for a description of "ths person yon wished to meet" A long talk which was had with the two part ners in we institution can not pe pnntea, nut at j its conclusion TUB tbutk was out.

Ths proprietor of one says he is "conducting an honest and legitimate business." Is it? Granting' that he does intend to secure huxbands and wives for his patrons, what kind of a business is it? For a paltry sum he brings together two utter strangers, and if he tells ths truth, in less than an hour later they are bound together for life. Would such a marriage be justified by ths laws of God and man? No man would form a business partnershipwhich could be dissolved almost instantly if desired with s man whom he had never seen or heard of before.

No woman with any self-respect or honor will do it Neither will any man worthy of ths name. The marriage of a matrimonial agency is a travesty of the sacred ordinance. It is worse. It is a mockery of morality, virtus and purity, an insult to religion. But when the mask is thrown off sad ths men who conduct it acknowledge that ths matrimonial agoncy is a scheme for ' bringing together vile men and women, or vile men and virtuous young women, or degraded women and moral young men, then the scheme cannot be painted in colors black enough. The gambling den. the saloon, ths pool room are moral in comparison. The open house of shame is lees wicked, because it claims to be only what it is. The matrimonial agency must go. The people, the pulpit and press must danism! its utter extinction. NEAR NEIGHBORS. RACINE Bacdck, Wis., Ang 27. On Sunday morning Mrs. Wustum, of Chicago, sang two solos at St Luke's Church, and Racine music lovers would fain detain the pleasant lady with ths rich contralto voice, bnt it can not be, as shs is about to join a prominent opera company. The office of the Racine Timet was burglarized on Sunday night and a small sum of money taken, and also a fine shawl and overcoat belonging to Mr. Willis. The German Catholic parsonage at Burlington was entered early the following morning, the burglar securing $300, a chalice valued at $600, a pair of shoes, and a gold-headed cane.

On Saturday evening last th beautiful yacht of Commodore PettiboneV of Chicago, which has been anchored in our harbor between trips this summer, was handsomely decorated with Chinese lanterns and a musical festival was held on board by th family and In vited guests of Mr. and Mrs. Pettibon. On Saturday afternoon the nw bee ballpark was filled with a delighted, watching the closely contested game between dhe Third Ward nine of Racine and the Kenosha Regulars. The Regulars aron, with a score of 18 to 17. On Monday morning the many friends of Captain Charles Frants were Shocked by the report of an accident ' to him, which was thought at first to be fatal The Captain was waiting for the 9:55 train, which was to carry him to his duties in Madison, and whils standing on ths platform wss struck by a cable two inches in diameter that was being used vto no- kdcar,of gravel for ths new depot The con tusion from the cable left an imprint nearly ten Inches . in length, directly on . the spine, and the captain was carried home in what was thought to be a dying condition. . He has improved so much, however, that strong hopes of Lis ultimate recovery are entertained by his physicians and friends. Captain Frants was a brave soldier, has always been reckoned one of our most valuable citizens, and was for many years our very efficient postmaster, of whom it was said In the auditor's department at Washington that his accounts always came in with promptness, and in a perfection of order seldom equalled by any postmaster with two good arms. A concert was given for tbe benefit of St Matthews' Church on Tuesday evening last, by Mies Modora Head, assisted bv Miss Ferrott of England, violinist; Miss Alfie Hill. , of St Joseph. Ma. contralto; Mrs. Will Strong and Mias Hinsdale, pianists, and Messrs.. Richard Bobinson and John D. Rowland, tenor and baritone, of Racine. Although great things were expected of Mias Head by those who have had the pleasure of bearing her since her return from Europe, even the most sanguine must have been agreeably surprised. . She has tbe wonderful faculty of adapting her voice to the style of music she has to sing, giving the grand and solemn organ tone to sacred music, the genuine Italian voice and pronunciation to ths opera mnsie of that language, even the correct and accepted style in the German, for the number given in that more difficult language. Her selections for ths evening varied widely in character, but according to the judgment of musical people were all equally excellent Among the unlearned in . such matters . ths "Arabian Love Song," and the ballad, '"Absent. Yet Present" were most admired. Miss Hill sung delightfully aa she always did in the days when ws were proud of her as a Kenosha girl, and Mrs. Strong and Miss Hinsdale did ample Justice to the fine selections for the plana Miss I'errott received many compliments from tbe veteran violin player, Mr. William Lewis, of Chicago, who was present, and so the delight of her hearers must havs been well founded. Mr. Bobinson, in removing to Racine, defrauded Kenosha of a voice we could ill afford to spare, but as he aids so kindly when he can be here, no one can complain, and with Mr. Rowland he received the appreciative gratitude of audience and the members of St Matthew's Pariah. On Thursday evening the young men of the older social clique, wr o are nice, if they are not numerous, gave a delightful dance at tbe rooms of the Business Men's Club. Hand's Orchestra from Chicago furnished the music, and the ladies the ices, coffee, and cakes, which were all-excellent and abundant Many guests were invited from abroad, who were prevented from coming by tbe threatening weather. Mr. Frank Loomis, of St Paul, accompanied by Ben Steb-bins from the same place. Messrs. Weller, of Milwaukee: Miss Grace Matthews, of Chicago; Miss Crombie, of Whitewater, and Mr. Arthur Towne, of Chicago, Mr. and Mrs. Fuller, of New York, were with Miss Perrott, of England, and were all the guests who do not conaidur Kenuaha their home.

COLLIER A5D THS TEIBCTEL . 7b th Editor. II I am informed rightly, Mr. Frank H. Collier had, in the eyes of the Tribune, the grave misfortune to be born in England, and in his early youth came to this country and naturalized here, graduated through ths schools, and has practiced lawvery successfully. Has been a member of the Board of Education, and as such voted to increase the ground rent of -school lands to eonform to incrsssed values, the Tritrund being on school lands. Ths back files of the Tribun will show thai since this action on hisjart and other members of the board it has left no stone unturned to down him. Hate, venom, animadversion, scur rility, has been thrown at him. simplv because a man in Chicago dared to do what he thought right regardless of even so great a power as the Tribun. I see in to-day's Tribun aa editorial craw fishing and eating all tbe carrion it had previously thrown at him. and therein stating that the mighty lYibune'i objection to Collier is be cause of his conduct in relation to the Queen's jubilee address, and that be lacks three essen tial 'delicacy of perception,'' and that be is "obtuse and bull-headed.'
