THE EVENING GAZETTE: MONDAY, FEBRUARY 6 1888. Evening Gazette. T B B 31 H ! o e«M f"««r RBIJVSRBD BT CARRIER. MONDAY, FEB. 8, 1B8S. IT is very much to be regretted that efforts at colonizing negroes in South America are bearing fruit. Colonization under any circumstances 19 burdensome upon the pioneers in the movement. To take a big lot of Ignorant and peor people to a country like South America where there are bad governments, bad climate, bad pay, la to greatly wrong a race that has already suffered enough, God knows, at the hands of the whites. Liberia is a living proof of the unwisdom of . such enterprises, for the negroes there are in wretched condition and dally deteriorating. While it is true that the condition of the Southern negroes might be greatly improved; true that they receive poor pay and are denied In many places the right of suffrage, still, it is their home and time will show improvement They are already greatly improved in the twenty-three years of freedom. This exodus bids fair to assume alarming proportions and if carried out to the extent proposed will work disastrously Indeed not only to the negroes themselves but also to the south. People may say what they will, but the white race cannot work in the cotton, rice, tobacco and sngarjlelds of the south. If the negroes go, then only some other dark race can take their places,—say the Chinese or'Japanese. Never were we more profoundly Impressed with the enervating Influences of Southern climate than at our last visit there. In the summer of 1880. It bad been ten years since we had been there during the summer months. Our friends will certainly give us credit for being in- dugtriouR, but we candidly confess that we remained in a condition of nearly absolute inertia during our six weeks' stay. We had no inclination to boat, or flsh, or drive, or ride, and by much leas would we have been induced to have done ten minutes manual labor of any kind. Not only did the temperature remain at 'about 82 to 85 degrees day and night, week by week, but it was an enervating temperature; it demanded a special effort of the will to walk to the dining room at meal time. For a white man to work outdoors from 10 a. m. to 3 p. m. tf-rs is something extraordinary. Understand, we do not say th- 'negro's condition at the south is to he envied; it is to be deeply regretted that his rights as a citizen are so nearly denii-d; that he does not receive higher wa^os; that his educational advantages are so few; but many as are his besetments, his condition Is a thousand fold better then It will be a-thousand-year-bebiud- the-in-the-worId-South-America,whose raora^conditlon ia unrest, and where vice la a virtue and honesty an unknown quantity. We refer of course, to the Interior farming regions where it is proposed to colonize. In the coast cities, English, American, German and Dutch influence have run out and raised the standard of morals and decency. Philanthropists of the north should interfere and go to the help of the leaders among the southern whites who are now seeking to check this flow of Immigration. ia to almost literally inflame his liver. The south Is a wooded region; in most places there is no chance for air to keep in motion; the winters are not se vere enough enough to thoroughly kill decaying vegetation. -There is .no chance to develop the fields except by that race which appears to be happiest when the sun ia at his best of heat- giving. We have seen negroes cheerily singing all the day long aa they rhymthicaliy swung their scythes, enjoying the intense exercise In the Intense heat,' and at the same time, whites would be in the shade resting and complaining of the weather. And they were there not because they preferred it, but because exposure to the burning sun meant billious fever or some quick-killing disease. But, we suppose the whites there would be able to procure Chinese labor, if the negroes were gone, just as the.Cubans do; so sympathy should be centered upon the poor blacks, who first stolen from their savage homes and happy there because they knew no other life, made to endure the horrors of slave ships, then kept In servitude several generations, set free and deluded with notions that freedom meant forty acres and a mule, this followed by persecutions manifold In the daya of the political revolutions of 1870-79, and after all this being again deceived by the ' promise of a paradise among the Spariish-Portugese-Negro -Indian-Mixed peoples of the south continent Which has scarcely reached a condition of civilization and which is constantly In a state of revolt. A long sentence this, but one which If read out slowly and when read, the mind will recall what negro persecutions have been, will show distresses great as those endured by Israel when In bondage to Egypt. The southern negro -had become reconciled to his condition; he had accepted the situation; it la hia home and loved despite his hardships. The times promised better things and hope wlspered in his breast aa in that of his white brother. Now, he is not only upset In mind but deladed with visions of a land of eternal blessedness. It is wtong and wickedly wrong to break up his southern home. Except in the single matter of citizenship, the southern people are kind to the negroes. They are loth to recognize their right to compete in the professions and in politics, but In alt other things they wish them well. It i» not possible that masters except in Uolated cases should have been cruel to their slaves. Are men op here cruel to their horses and cattle? But the negroes were dearer to their white masters then are horses and cattle to the northern master, because of their greater value and because of life long association and blgher;lnteliigence of the negroes. The master's attachment for his slave* was in many cases strong wellnigb. aa that for hia own family. We know in our own case that while, of ooona, there was boundary which \V K HAVE written to General Henderson and to Senators Farwell and Cullom asking them to get Sterling a government building. Asheville. N. 0. and three other places smaller than Sterling and of Infinitely less importance have already at this early stage of Congress 1 had appropriations of 8100,000 each made for this purpose, and Sterling ought to have one, too. There is a large surplus In the treasury and the receipts of government are infinitely in excess of expenses; so the government has the money. O yes, we know some people who read this will laugh, and ask what will Cobb favor next, but we don't care for that,—have got used to it. They sneered when we proposed water works and natural gas and spoke of free delivery. Sterling is a live and growing city, destined to be of importance in the no distant future. We never will, grow as fast as we may, get^a government building until we ask for It; It don't cost but four or five postage stamps to aak for it; if tho government refuses, or If the Congressmen named refuse to ask for it, we will be no worse off afterwards than we are now, ''Ask and ye shall receive" Is not so positive in governmental affairs as In spiritual ones, but one thing is certain; in religion, no grace is promised unless It is asked for, and just as truly the government don't give unless one does ask. Washburne got a government building for that ancient little city Galena,;and somebody else got one for Cairo, and any one knows Sterling is of infinitely more importance than either one of these places. To be sure there be those that will say, "What is the use of asking?" to them, we say, "Then don't ask." Some others w 11 say, "We know we'll not get it." To them we say, "You don't know any such thing." At any rate, no body can keep us from 'asking, for we have already done BO; and if we,don't get it along with the other cities that are asking for it, then we shan't worry any, but shall simply say to ourself, softly, and consolingly; That's nil right; all of us Sterling fellows will pitch right in, and keep on growlsg until we'll grow S3 big that the government can't flnd a house here big enough for the transaction of its business, and will just be compelled to give us one, any way. If any other 1 } of our citizens will kindly pltcfi In and write to either of the gentlemen named and second our motion, or write to other Congressmen they know and ask them to cooperate with General Henderson in the matter, we shall be glad. Other wise, let it rest as it is. There is no use in falling back upon reserve and modesty in- public matters; that class of fellows don't get anything. . Tup ECLECTIC for February ^coh- usual, the cream of the English magazines, reviews and weeklies. -Its articles are so well selected, that in its pages one gains Information from over eighteen different publications. AN INTENSELY interesting article is "Astronomy with an opra glass" In the Popular Science Monthly for February. The whole number is of a most valuable character and will be enjoyed' by non-scientific as well as scientific readers. —Whlteside county publishers and editors' association is in session nt Morrison this afternoon. —Jacob Schott was (hied Sioand I,ad costs in the same sum assenaed against him by Justice Wolfersberjer, for striking Billy Boehm. The man ^ohott was a tenant of Billy's and struck and kicked him because he insisted upon his remaining until the expiration of the time of lease of the htmso. —The tramp nuisance is that needs looking Into. There are few nights in which a greater or less number fail to sleep in some place or other at SU-rllng. They did so all through the coldest weather of this winter. The Impression that they go to jails or to the south for the winter la a mistake. Some do, but many do not. The south isn't healthy for tramps; in jail they get no whisky, which they love better than meat and bread. sterling Is large and these tramps know th« ofllcers anch elude them by gettlhg away from the business center, where they beg or obtain food by threatening the women folks, who alone at home, are, often, afraid to refuse them. People aro constantly missing small articles from their premises, which thej do not report, because they don't like to make a fuss over the matter There is no excuse for tramps—none in the world. If instead [of, "sending them on" when arrested.^each city and village had a stone pile to put them at work upon, or would make them work upon the streets, the business, would soon be broken up. ~\/ —Mrs. Elizabeth Rutt died at the residence of her sori-in-law, Simon I5ren- neman, Saturday evening at 0:20 o'clock of gangrene. She was ill but a few days. - Her age was 79 years. The friends met at the bouse this afternoon at 1:30 o'clock. They then proceeded with the remains to the First Baptist church where Bishop Henry Nice of Morrison, preached in ' German, and Kev. Gilman Parker in; English. The remains will be taken east via. the C. B.&Q., for burial at Elizabethtown, Pa., her son David and wife accompa nying them, where they will be laid by the side of those of her husband.

She had the pleasure of seeing her children grown up ard settled in life and her last years were spent in serenity and calmness, much "of her ImppiireartnBluglriTlier ctTTTdrenr to whom she was greatly attached.

Mrs. Butt's maiden name was Baer; she was born May 13th 1800, in Dauphin County, Pa.,nearIIar- risburg, and was' married March 17, 1840, to Samuel W.

A cradle made of stout brown wicker and prettily drnped with white trtualtn and blue ribbons. Just such a nest for a wee one aa can be found In hundreds of homes In the broad laud, yet It differs from them all. Fur elphtecn long yenrs this simple cradle has been the ark by which thousands npon thousands of Innocent little lives have been saved from the flood of misery and sin that sweeps over this (treat city. Over this cradle have bent 17,000 women. Women with bleeding hearts and tortured soul*, mothers who cama to lay In lt"and so renounce their first born. It has been drenched with the tears of the wretched and rocked with the agonized last embrace that marks the parting of flesh and blnod from Its own. If you want to seo this cradle go to the Foundling asylum on Sixty-eighth street and Third avenue. The building Is a very fine one of cheerful red brick, with stone focincs, nnd over the mnln entrnuce is tho slKuUlcant figure of St Vincent do Paul, the great apostle of charity, holding tenderly in his arms a little abaufloned ouu. Tn the asylum there are about 700 children, with their nurses and nurse mothers, louring 1,000 or 1,100 still to lie provided for. Tho latter are given out to be wet nursed by women who have lost their own children nnd are glnd to add to their husbands' earnings by taking a child from the sisters. These women, the wives of respectable worklngmen, are selected with care and have to be well Indorsed. They aro pjild $10 a month and are under the surveillance not only of a detective bnt of n parish Tisltor, who may coll at any moment. The colored babies, who look like big rubber dolls, with bright bead eyes, nre nursed by colored mothers, and when they leave th e asylh m are sent to a colored order of slaters In Baltimore to be trained In useful occupations. There is something pathetic in the fact that no one, not even of their own raco, wants to adopt a child of negro blood. The children carry no badge of charity about them, nnd they are dressed with every regard to neatness and comfort. It takes, by the; way, twenty-five machines and as muuy workers within the asylum wulls to turn out the 100,000 articles of clothing used every year. Once a month there each child Is carefully Inspected and reported on at the asylum, a physician being in attendance to prescribe, If necessary, and the medicine promptly mode up In the dispensary. The magnitude of the tha ilare not pass, and while M* Inferiority was too manifest to call forth that attachment which come* of •Moeiation between equals, »till a a«p- amtion of a quartericfintury'B duration cannot efface the olden memories of childhood and our heart would beat quickly and fast with piewmra to clasp tb* hand of one of oar former slaves.

There Is not a street or an avenue In fashionable New York that Is not represented in tho asylum wards fllled with prattling little ones. It needs no practiced eye to recognize In the small ear, tho well shaped hand and foot and tho clearly cut features tho child of gentle birth, Just as the child of the laborer and the raw emigrant bears the stamp of Its heritage, in broad back, heavy build, coarsely cut features and large extremities. . Walter Besant, In his "Children of Gideon," wihhes ns to believe that, if given tho same advantages and surroundings, it would, when they reached maturity, be Impossible to' distinguish between the child of the washerwoman and the child of the gentlewoman. In brief, that education and tho refinements of wealth would stamp out heredity. If the physical advantages were equal to begin with this might be true ultimately, but before education begins, say in the cose of a child of 8 years, there is no danger of a woman's eye confounding the two, though the surroundings be identical. The evidence of birth is to be found hi a child's natural manner, its instinctive daintiness, its natural boorishnoBS. The love of the beautiful and clean in the offe, the Indifference of the other to any bnt Ita animal wants. One child will come of Ita own accord and ask to have its hands washed from an instinctive dislike to dirt: the other will shrink from water and soap, and a taste for cleanliness has to be drilled Into him. The sociologist can find plenty to study In the nurseries of the asylum. Tho little ones are brought up under the impression that they are at school, and that some day their papas and mammas will wrlw for them to come home. Inconsequence of this the deserted children never know for a moment that they have been discarded by their own, but look forward with happy confidence to coins home. •% • • Every few months a baud of forty or fifty children is sent west, where competent agents have found places for thorn —never where there are small children in the family, nor unless the people are able and willing to give them a good education. As a rule the secret pf their origin is well kept.

"How long does it take to learn the trade?" "That, greatly depends upon the student. Usually a girl should master the trade In one season.

That Is after she has taken lessons for one season. Forewomen who superintend the work earn about $25 a week. They are women of long experience in the trade.

Late Idea* of Bre&kfut. The old adage, "No breakfast, no man," is perhaps as true in some form today as when first formulated, although of late years the ideas of people concerning breakfast have undergone a radical change. For the laboring man and for the man, of much physical exercise, a heavy breakfast is necessary, bnt for the man or woman of sedentary habits a light breakfast Is doubtless much better. In any case, fruit should always be found at breakfast. Many prefer it after the meal, but it is not only mortSfeaJgestlble but assists the digestion more surely if used at the beginning of the meal. For a light breakfast tho frnit should be followed by one of tho cereals in some form with cream, which Is more nourishing than milk, and by many as easily digested. This, followed by delicate dry toast or rolls, with coffee, tea or chocalate, and perhaps eggs In some form, makes a breakfast so easily digested that many persons can do far more work on it than on heavier food. — Table Talk. The S«»l'» Domestic Discipline, Travelers have often »ald that there seemed to be something human about tha seal, and one story told here seems to give It confirmation. It is about the breeding rookery, where the seal pups are in the nursery, so to speak.

The estimate loss of 10 per cent. Is caused by bulls in preserving rigid discipline and administering necessary correction In the management of their domestic affairs. Their idea of a female's duty does not admit of any little indiscretions, and at the slightest sign of deviation, regardless of consequences, they quickly pounce upon the offending female and shake her by the neck.
