"the three hand, fcomest men ol their tifne Were the late bnke.ol Hamilton, Sidney Herbert and Cardinal Manning; the thrte most natur ally'eteqneiit Speakefs ol their day, the late Cuke ol Ai-gyle, the late Lord Elgin and Witbetlotte. lord Beactfnfield was the most interesting political character ol the century, not excepting Mr. Pitt," This compliment is especially gracelul as .it telates to flaconfield, the most brilliant (tad powerful ot Gladstone's rivals. fits public Was hardly prepared fof-so sudden and utter a capitulation by the senate to the demands of the silver kings and their allied heretics ol the west and south. Not too much wisdom was expected of that body, but the egregious and criminal lolly involved irl the free coinage hill exceeded even the measure ol bad legislation which the Fifty-first congress has set lor itself, It was not enough to pledge the word and treasure of the nation to buy at their own price all the silver that the money-bag senators of Colorado, California aod Nevada can dump at the door of the treasury; it wos.not enough to make this country the dumping ground for'alj the silver of the world; it was not enoush to invite all comers from all lands to bring to America 73 cents worth of silver and receive therefor 81 of American money— these things ol themselves are calamitous enough, but, ih the mad race for national dishonor, it was necessary that, in a time of great general prosperity, the treasury of the nation should be employed to unsettle values and to give to the commerce of the country the unhealthy'flush which invariably precedes disaster. Neither tho United States nor any other body can make, by legislation, a dollar out of three parts of a dollar; nor add, by law, one cent to the value of an ounce of silver. Congress has tried it and the effect will be, not to increase the value of silver but to cheapen the American dollar, which, until now, has passed as par in the'ex- changes of the world. President Harrison has an opportunity such as rarely comes to man to rebuke this folly and call the senate back to common sense. THE scheme proposed at Harvard of reducing the college course from four to three years, is the most revolutionary event which has startled the educational world for many years. In regard to it tho views of Acting President llemsen, of Johns Hopkins university, will be of special interest: "I am heartily in favor of the changes which the president of Harvard recommends. Tho difficulty which it is necessary to overcome is one that is now being more and more clearly recognized by all those who have to deal with college education on the one hand and professiona- education and business on the other hand. It has come to that pass that young men now get out of college"*,! an average age of twenty-three or twenty-four years, and then have to begin their professional studies, or go into business. In either case they should have begun earlier. At the same time the courses in tho professional schools have been growing longer, so that it is impossible for young men to get ut their life work earlier than twenty-eight or thirty years of age. Taking everything into consideration, I believe that the majority of educators will approve of tho plan which is now before the Harvard overseers. Personally I am convinced that it is an important step forward in educational matters in this country." CoNTKAnv to the popular impression, United States Minister Palmer thinks no other country in Europe has a better pros, pect for a long continuance of prosperity than Spain. Spain he regards as "practically outside of the war circle" of Europe. She has a smaller standing army than any other prominent nation in Europe, and thus is subjected to much less expense while her natural defenses on -all sides give her a great advantage in any possible invasion of her territory, as has abundantly been shown in history in the case of the Carthaginians, Romans and Saracens, and later in the Napoleonic wars. Spain, Mr. Palmer thinks, has gone to sleep, butisad- vancing in material prosperity and political freedom. Her resources are being developed, her manufacturing increased, and, from indications, may yet take her place among the nations of the first rank. In the mutter of freedom, Minister Palmer says thero is substantially as much freedom in Spain as in the United states, and that in Spain as in the United States, free speech is the safety valve of the govern ment. In the readjustment of the balance of European power, which may take place at almost any time, Spain is likely to gain rather than to lose in prestige, and that, too, at less expense than in the case of any of the great powers. Republican ideas sown in western Europe may yet reclaim the continent and bear as a harvest of the political freedom and regeneration of Europe. NEVEII in the history of any state has there been such u condition of affairs as now exist in Louisiana. The great history fight will soon come to a climax and it will be known which is the stronger, tho influence of money lavishly expended or honesty and loyalty to the best interests of the public. The contest has been complicated by the appearance on the scene ol officers of some of tho heaviest corpora -•lions in tho state, who are supporting the demand of the lottery compuny on the ground that its annual contribution will largely decrease the rate of taxation. There is not even the semblance of decency in the methods of the lottery men. They are openly attempting to bribe legislators and buy them out and out by the offer oi largo sums of money. Many of these legislators ure so poor that in their eyes u thousand dollars bus something more than ordinary proportions. When u proposi tion is made to one of these men to vote for the lottery in consideration of tho j payment of $10,000, or even more, it will require the sturdiest moral character and the most determined purpose to withstand tho temptation. The men who in the face of these over-powering influences persist in their fight against this colossal fraud deserve the highest eulogy us moral heroes. The nation will soon know whether honor or dishonor prevails in Louisiana. There is u glimmer of hope in the fact that in spite of the great amount ol money ut their disposal und their free use ol it the lottery managers are not con fldent of success. Such bare-faced cor ruptioji, eucb tralfickinjf iu personal character, wtw never heard ol before. The that will countenance und ;tice it deserves to bo wipftd out oi ex.

' .. Eleven years ago, When Casati was 41 years old and a captain in the army, tho desire to become an African explore] 1 so strongly impressed him that he threw up his commission, and. in tho service of the Italian Society for the Com- merical Explofotiori of Africa, stated . for the BahM-Gazolle region, then alrribst Unknown to.the world except in the writings of Schweinfurth. ; He safely 1-eached that region of many water-ways and interesting tribes and there he had a touching meeting with his countryman •, Qessi Pasha. The explorer of Albert Nyailza nursed thenow comer through a dangerous fever, refusing to leave him till ho was fully restored 10 health, and then Qossi set out on that terrible journey down the Nile, when bin party was imprisoned for weeks, njany perishing of starvation, and Qossi escaping at .las? only to die of his privation as he nearod tho Mediteranneoii. Casati set out to explore the Welle Makua; for nobody know where tho great rivor which Schwoinfurth discovered had its outlet, and (reographors were indulging in some very wild speculations, Wo know now that this river, three-fifths as long as the Mississippi, is the greatest Congo tributary. For many months Casati's friends heard nothing of him, but at last came along a letter which was the talk of Italy for weeks. Casati had been a prisoner for over ayear in tho hands of Chief A zangit, to whom he had applied for carriers on nis proposed trip down the Welle Makua. The chief robbed him of everything he possessed and barely spared his life, compelling him and hia men to pick their food around the village as best they were able. Of course tho people thought themselves privileged to emulate tho example of their chief, anJ so they made existence niiserablo for the white mnn, and his life was often in danger. One day ho committed tho crime of blowing courteously to the king's mother whereupon an angry mob sur'Oimd- ed him, and one young fellow rushed upon him with a knife. Casati caught the uplifted ami and wrestled tho knife from tho savage. He retained the trophy to remind him that it was dangerous to bo too polite to African ladies of rank. A girl in this savage community on several occasions was kind to the white prisoners and stealthily supplied him with food. One day she eloped -with nshwo nnd all tho men started in hot haste after tho fugitives. They were caught and tho slave was killed on tho spot. The wrotehcd girl was dragged back to tho village, and Casati had tho misery of witnessing the tragic death of his benefactress, whom he was powerlcsH to ajd. Her body was divided among the chiefs for food and Casati saw one of them cooking a portion of her flesh. At last Cas.iti made his escape and wandered with his few followers though the wilderness, avoiding native settlements, until ho reached an Arab camp, the Khartoum Arabs being at tnat lime scattered in considerable numbers though this region. They knew there was money behind Casati, and they did not hesitate to take his draft in payment for the goods they sold him. Stanley and other explorers have obtained assistance in the same way from Arabs in central Africa. It was with a draft on 7an r /.ibar that Stanley hired Tippu Tib to accompany him a considerable distance on his first journey down tho Congo. The Italian explorer then started for the Welle Miikua, entering tho Niam-Niam country, where he met the powerful King Kuuna, with whom ho made blood brotherhood. Casati's Italian friends think an admirable poem may be made of the ro- matic incidents in the life of Ntikama, tho father of King Kuuna. When he was a helpless little boy he saw his father, an important chief, killed before his eyes. The boy grew up almost unnoticed, and the slayers of his father little dreamed that the lad was patiently waiting till he could wreak vengonce upon them. Making friends with all the young men, ho grew in influence until he killed all concerned in his father's death, and conauered chief after chief until ho ruled nil tho great region which, when Casati was there, acknowledged as king. There was a groat sacrifice of poultry when Casati loft this friendly ruler. Tho king had his men throw eight hens into the rivor, nnd ho carefully counted those that sank and those that reached tho shore. Tho prognostignation was favorable, and tho great man assured the traveler that he would have a prosperous journey. It turned out, however, that as a medium of prophecy hens are less trustworthy than certain American weather prophets, Casati was poorly equipped for his journey down tho rivor, and the Welle Makua problem reserved for Van Gele. Among other potentrates with whom Casati scraped acquaintance was Bukon- gol, who hnd tho pleasing habit of distributing tho ciuil-offi favoritjes of his harem among his dependent chiefs every two weeks. Ho had 500 ladies in his harem, and provided himself every other year with an entirely new sot. Casati's destitution compelled him finally to seek relief by joining Emin on tho Nile, That was in 1883 when tho maluli was making a noise in tho world, and there Casati lived, tho faithful friend and lieutenant of the governor of the Equatorial province, until Stanley came for them. One of his most trying experiences occurred after ho had met Stanley, and before that explorer reached Albert Nyan/Ji on his second trip from the Aruwi- mi rivor. Emin had sent him as his representative to the chief town of Kabba Hega, king of Unyoro. One of his most important duties was to act as postmaster, Emin sending to him his correspondence for Europe, and Casati making tho best arraugments ho could to forward the letters to tho coast. Casati lived there for 20 months, and was fairly well treated by the king until suddenly the capricious despot changed his humor and sentenced Casati to death, His black comrade, Mohammed Uiri, was put to death. This man was a 'iuni- sian slave boy on the coast of tho Mediterranean when Lieut. Decker, a liolgian, took htm to Europe as his servant. Ho afterward accompanied his cmploiier to Lake Tanganyika, and after Decker's long survko at the Kalginn station of Karoma, Mohammed iliri, clioso to say good-bye to white friend and remain behind as a central African trader. Ho was remarkably successful, and wlu-ii he met his Into he was getting rich as riches are counted there. Casati, though bound hand and foot, managed to escape one dark night, and for three days he wandered almost naked and without a morsel of food until ho reached Ihu lake. The entire country to Hie lake is under Kobba Hega's sway, and the white man did not dart- to show himself in tiny villay-u. A few of Casati's attendants escaped with him, and one of them, finding a imtivo canoe, padded across tho lake and brought Emin in his steamer' to tl.o relief of tho starving party. , • Cimsti's great grief on this occasion was tho loss of all lib note books. "1 am vyofully oppressed," ho wrote, "by the loss of all my notes. Tho work of so muny years vanishes like smoke!" It was indeed (v great loss.

WAI; CI.AIHE, Wis,, Special Telegram, Juno 17.- — Tho question of whether any law exists to punisji inmates of houses of ill repute in Wisconsin is aboul to bo tested and will doubtless get to tho supreme court. As tha result of a dunce in a don near hero several women are in jail. Their attorney lias discovered that the legislature of 1889 in amending section 4589 of the revised statuts as amended by chapter 316, laws of 1887, failed to re-enact section 2 of the hitler law which soclion provides for punishing inmates.
