NKW YOIIK has a corps of sanitary Inspectors, composed of fifty young doctors, who inspect the more crowded portions of the city. Their duty is to examine carefully the sanitary condition of the district assigned, and to give medical advice and treatment when required. Disinfectants and medicines are supplied gratuitously. IN a recent letter to Prince Bismarck from Troy, Dr. Henry Schllomann tells about his excavations there. He is making comparatively slow progress, he •ays, on account of the depth of the de- jposit of earth on the ruins. Seventy aien and three locomotives are employed fby Dr. Schliemann. The doctor writes •the art treasures which he will give to the newly-founded museum of Trojan antiquities at Berlin, are of great value and beauty.

LATEU reports confirm the fears that the world has suffered an irreparable loss in tho Alhambra fire.

Although the first session of the Fiftieth Congress lasted until October 20, the present session, by: rea« aon of its longer daily sessions, has faf exceeded it in working time and tha amount of legislative work actually accomplished. In figures the business of the session is expressed as follows: Bills and Joint,resolutions Introduced in tho House, 18,403; in the Senate, 4,750; total 16,972, against 15,598 In tho first session of the last Congress, which In this matter far excelled all previous records.

By tho Son- ate—1,100, of whtcti 488 have been sent to 'the President, making; a total number of about _1,385 acts or laws, agafast 1,790 for the whole of -,tho last Congress. Of these acts 006 House and .MS? Senate bills were few pensions lo individuals, In the completed work of the session, aside from the revision of the ariff and internal-rewnue l»ws by he MeKinley-Aldrich tariff bill, the following measures whick have become laws may be named as thw most important: The bill providing for the monflhly purchase of 4,500,0tw ounces of silver; th« % customs administrative &H1; the dependent s»d disability pension bitt;- tb«r anti-trust bill; tb°s'anti-lottery bill; the provision, for a world's fair In ®hl- cago jn 1893 to- eeteforate the lour hwidredthtaii- niversary offlhe dfesovery of America; the admission of Wyoming and Idaho to StatehoadV the meat-iuapeetisT* bill; the lanc&grant TIP- t eiture bill; tdie original-package bitt; the bttl- recommended' by tfl« international maritinw^ conference t«.' prevent collision at sea; andths 1 provisions (Im the naval appropriation bill) ta> add to the new navy thnc* line-of-batt»e shlps r one protected 1 ofuise^.ono torpedo crutocr, and! one torpedo bant.

A LONDON firm has adopted a novel mode of advertising.

An almost equally original method of adveo- .tising is about to be adopted in Chicago* where it is understood that tvicyctes driven by motors operated by storage batteries will bo used in the streets, lor save the bay's, life were advertising purposes. PADRE VINES, a Jesuit priest in Havana, has been making weather predictions so accurately for twenty-flvo years that our Government recently offered him a salary. But as a Jesuit priest he Could not accept such recognition of his Valuable services. For many years the various steamship companies touching at the West Indies have paid the cost of the telegraph service necessary for the sending from point to point of his predictions. The padre has come to be regarded as one of the most trustworthy weather scientists of tbe age. ^^_ A SYSTEM has been invented by an officer of the United States Navy by •which stringed musical instruments •can be operated by electricity. He produces sound by the vibration of a •tretched wire in a magnetic field. An alternating current is passed through the wire and vibrations are sec up, and continue so long as the current flows. Tho best results are gained where the current is made and broken unevenly, as by rubbing a terminal over a coarse file. The inventor proposes to apply bis Invention in an electrical piano, and alto in a system of multiple telegraphy. TBUTH is no stranger than fiction, but is sometimes anti-dated by the latter. One of the "Saxe-Holm" stories that- attracted wide attention some years ago related the history of a woman who married a minister, and, on his death, being gifted and saintly, was requested by the rural congregation to occupy his pulpit, which she did most acceptably. Now comes a story of a Unitarian preacher in a Vermont town whose wife preached for him tho other Sunday, when he was 111. So well did she please the congregation that they think of calling her regularly should the husband remain til in liriof. The ]~A»ace fair has opened at Forest: City.

Protection does not establish monopoly, but breaks down foreign monopoly by encouraging home competition. We have already made our labor more productive, elevated its character and made the workman's life larger and richer than any other nation in the world. All the people in Europe feel and know this to be tue fact; and what is the practical result? The total immigration from the total 1 United Kingdom for 1887, according: to the "Statistical Abstract" of the United States, shows 101,748 immigrants who- came bore to better their condition. The immigration from Germany was 106,865; Austria, 30,430; Hungary, 15,256; Sweden, 42,836; Norway, 16,369; Italy,, 47,532; Russia in Europe, 28,044; Poland, 6il2W?

Because they expect amelioration of their estate:- Because they expect to be, and know that tbey will !>e, better fed, better clad; Better sheltered, with mere books, newspapers and public libraries, and betftor common schools for their children* • Our savings banks are prineipally patrondeed by our working population. Wha& do they show? That in? 1886-7, the amount of deposits in the savings baafe of the United States \rere $l,235,2«7J87il;. that the number of depositors-* was 8,'4"l8i013, with an averaga-to each depositor of 3361. Now, how about British free trade? & it Iree trade? For centuries England was ri gidly proteative. Forty yeans- ago she adopted an inconsistent f aiidvdeefep- irtve approach toward a theory^ which no cdvi'lized nation ever carriedowtimprac- tice;: and she now says to America, adopt ffree-trade, as we have, to impirave your mwterial prosperity. That pjnDSpeoity wouldi result, wo don't doubtj but it wou-ldi be British and not American prosperity, as they would getf tile- monopoly of our markets and break down ow manufactures. In 1842 thte- noted tariff of Sir Robert Peel was .emaoted. Hbw much free tirade was there- alMxnt itff Mr. Gladstone, Chancellor!- of the [English Exchequer, said of it:: "I* was jam attempt to make a general ap- iproach to the following rules: FIsat,.the 'removal of prohibitions; secondly, the ireduffition of duties on manufactured 'artaeles, and protective duties generally ;td am average ot twenty per cenfe, ad jva-lawie-m; thirdly; on partially masau- •(factared articles-to rates not exceeding i'teniper cent; foasrthly, on raw marte- ]rial» to rates not over five pen-aenA." |Peel, himself, said: "I do not i abolish •alii protective duities. On the contrary, ^jthe- amended tariff maintains many iduiti-es that are purely protective;, as ^distinguished from revenue- dntie-u." tariffs of 18i5 and 1840 were-similar their general tenor, but of .

' Of course the policy urged by American ffc»e trader has the full aympathy and support ot British traders and manufftotutera, because it is for their benefit, Do» Americans believe^ ttiat the reasons for upholding a protective tariff of the groat minds of our country—Washington, Madison, Jbfferson, Webster, Clay, Dallas, GoVernoms George Clinton, Daniel D. Tompklns,. DeWitt Clinton, and others of like eminence—were selfish, shallow, short-sigttted and absurd, or do they believe tha* they were lab- oral, enlightened, philosophic - and statesmanlike, and for tfte highest good of our country? We are still a young country and lack the vast-acoumulatlorra of capital that Great Britain and Franco cam boast, and they have-the advantage of ws in an abundance at artisans off. eminent experience and skill. Many foreign fabrics have grea* advantages! over-us, because many consider them more stylish or attractive; but if every man and woman here would evince a patriotic pride in wearing American fabrics the effect would be-wn. versa ly benefMent upon American" manufactures. The remarkable development of the sugar industry in France under a pro- tective'tariff invigorated other industries, aad especially agriculture, and caused Ihbor to be better reoomponsed than baiore; and France, inn 1806, was exporting a considerable quantity of beet sugror to England, the country that in the inception of the beet sugar industry isn France tried to stifife and kill it We need here for years to come a protective tariff to thoroughly; develop our manufiacturing capacities, and their command ol machinery and power will enable us'to produce cheaply wares and fabrics exported mostly by European nations,-whose cheap lab'ir and experience give them advantages over us; but whom), trader a .wise protective policy we shall yet overtake and pass, as we have already done in the manufacture of edge-tools, plows and most cultural implements, nails and other articles. We have a great and West where the plan-ti diversified manufactures will be-s ily followed by a manifest palpable increase of agricultuual duction and. thrift. We are convinced that our people will persist in^alling for the maintenance of a protective tariff, to encourage tbe planting} of new industries-,-, tbe naturalization of new departments, of productive laboiron our soil, as well as the protection o-fthose already existing, and the coi4^Mlhk.t opening tonhwndreds of thousands portunitios fee earning,., a perior to andi more accept; which thay else would Now, a woffdi against ad valorem' A speciflcttLu'ty exacts so muohi m per yard, per pound, or per torn on importatioBi e>f an article without regard to fluctuation in the value or price of that a»tia-le, while an ad'valorem duty exacts* such a percentage of the appraised,, sworn or invoiced! value of Ihe articles imported.
