Italians on Emigration.
Emigration nnd Its rosllts Is a llvo
topic of convorsntlon among nil clnssos
nf society In Italy. I havo witnessed
tnnny a liot discussion In tlio town
secretary's offlco when I was gleaning
statistics. ScvornI men always fol-
lowed tlio stranger Into tlio olllco nnd
stood by Interested listeners until np-
pealed to for tliolr opinions. I wns
surprised to discover liow well posted
nlno out of every ten nrc with defi-
nite woll-thought-out convictions fa-
vorublo or unfavorable to tlio move-
ment according to their social position.
A southern landlord In tho province of
Mollso told me with brlstllnR mus-
tacho and keen Hashing eyes wrltrs
Antonio Mnngano In Charities nnd tho
Commons thnt every year ho Is find-
ing It more difficult to securo laborers
to raise Ills wheat nnd ho is compelled
to pay such ns nro nvallablo thrco
times as much ns ho over did before. I
turned to Plctro n brawny workman
who stood listening nnd smiling to
himself with his hands in his pockets.
'Well nnd whnt do you think of this
emigration to America?" 1 asked. Ho
straightened Involuntarily tho hands
.nnio out of his pockets to nsslt his
rapid geatlculntory Italian. "Ah!
S.tnor emigration 13 ono great hlcss-
liif; to our country. What would all
;ueso pooplo do bore excopt to llvo
more wretchedly if that wero possi-
ble whilo tho latlfoudlsti (landown-

emigration is a great blessing."
When tho cutting up of tho public

original statos contained tho most

tbulr destruction has been and how

sider the pine forests auout tho Great
Lakes. Thcro wero in that region 60

Dr. Manning Is n pood buslnesr man thoroughly able to handle tho fi-
nances of the wealthiest parish In tho country. Recently an attack was made
on Trinity becauso of tho r.eemlng secretlveness In making public what be-
came of $400000 of its funds Just year. It elicited no reply.
Dr. Manning is 42 years old. Ho was born In England and came to this
country at ton years of age. After graduation from the University of the
South at Sewaneo Tenn. he wns rector of a small Callfornln church for a
year and then spent three-years as a professor of dogmatic theology within
tho walls of his alma mater. Before taking tho rectorahlp of a church at
l.nnsdownc Tenn. ho married Into the wealthy Van Antwerp family.
Soon he was occupying tho plfico of assistant rector to Trinity parish.
Ho had refused tho bishopric if Kentucky somo yeara before. In Novcin
her 1004 ho wns elected bishop of Harrlsburg. Dr. Manning saw tho greater
field or usefulness opening before him In the New York parish and waiving
tho honors of n title chose the $8000 a year assistant rectorship and the
traditional rights of succession to the head of Trinity corporation.
Dr. Manning has few amusements. He belongs to tho University clut
and goes there not often. His homo life Is pleasant and ho Is fond of music
golf and sailboat riding.
Mr. Birrcli is undoubtedly one of the strongest men in tho present gov-
ernment and when tho late Sir Henry Campbell-Banuerman was sent for by
King Edward to form an administration the first man ho turned to was Mr.
Blrrell. He was given tho department of education because on It would fall
tho work of preparing a bill to undo the work of tho Conservative government
which practically abolished tho -:chool boards rmd set up a system of church
fchools a system which was bitterly fought by tho non-conformists many of
whom went to Jail rather than pay taxes for their support. Mr. Birrcll's bill
passed tho commons but the peers inserted 147 annulments which would
havo destroyed the bill altogether so the commons refused to accept them.
Mr. Blrrell Is quite a prolific author. His principal works nro "Obiter
DIctu" and "Essays and Addresses" which the London Graphic pronounced
lo bo "terse scholarly humorous nnd suggestive sympathetic and witty." He
Is said to bo thn ono humorous man In tho cabinet. Ho is nn able forceful

ficer who Is exofficlo llentcnnnt govornor and its choico fell on PlndalL.Thus
he reached the otrico of governor through the side door nnd the man who de-
