and lumber increased from 14,000,000 super
ficial feet in 1885 to 84,000,000 feet in 1888,
as has been shown in the annual report to
the government, is a patent argument in
favor of Darien's progressiveness. Coast
wise vessels arc almost without exception of
shallow draught, and no difficulty whatever
has been experienced in inducing such ves
sels to come here. Hence the great increase
in this line of shipments. Foreign sliije

Darien Timber Gazette: Capt. Rasmus

days ago cabled home to the underwriters
company, in which his vessel is insured,
asking at what draught the company would
assume the risk over Doboy bar. The
prompt reply was Is feet (Norwegian), equal
to about 18W English feet. While 19 or 20
feet would have been equally
safe for the company, we still have
reason to feel pleased at this fact, as it
shows that confidence in our bar is being
restored. The unjust clamor that was made
by some captains two or three years ago re

risk more than 11 fort draught over the liar.

The old-time sport, of fox-hunting that
was so generally indulged in Dougherty
county, was a pleasure extracted from ne
cessity. Reynard was a pestiferous denizen,
and preyed unceasingly upon the tender
lambs of the shepherd s fold, ami on tho
chickens of the housewife's hennery. These
depredations forced the necessity of the
decimation of the pest, and extermination
if possible. Dogs were kept in packs, trained
to scent and follow tho trail of the foxes,
and what was a necessity was
happily converted into a sport that
afforded one of the most pleasing
diversions of the country life. The prow l
ing, wily foxes were so closoly hunted years
ago that they were greatly thinned out, and
fox hounds were neglected. The conse
quence is that very few fox dogs arc to bo
found in the country, and the foxts are mul
tiplying greatly to the annoyance of farm
s whose lambs and chickens they molest.
A planter said at Albany Saturday that the
foxes are multiplying so that ho intends to
collect a pack of dogs and return to the
“chase” as in the good old days of tho jiast.
Some five or six years since a monster
snake was seen in Rawls Pond, six miles be
low Albany, and the gentleman who saw it
related his adventure to a number of in
credulous friends. It has remained to this
day a matter of test among the acquaint
ance* of the frightened gentleman, the re
ported propoi-tions of the huge reptile.
Among the number who beard the state
ment with a mental reservation was Dr. C.
P. Hartwell, who owns a large plantation
embracing the larger part of the swamp
surrounding the pond. The doctor is now
however, a firm believer, but it required
seeing to convince him. One day last week
he was out in the field with his farm hands,
and iia vmg occasion to go into the edge of the
swamp encountered a snake, the sight of
which almost took his breath away. The
reptile showed fight, and the doctor railed
lor his laborers. One responded, but seeing
the snake, ho fled. The others were called,
and with great polps the brigade surrounded
his snakeship, and made an attack that re
sulted in its death. Dr. Hartwell says that
he thought he iiad seen big snakes before,
but all native snakes were midgets by this
monster, which was lurger than any he ever
saw in any circus museum. It proved to lie
of a variety of water snake, about ten feet
lone, nearly as large as uu ordinary man’s

bead. When it opened its mouth it seemed
possible for it to enclose a man’s head.

Bonifay exhibited an alfalfa or lucerne
growing quite rank and vigorous. It was
sowed about April 1 with oats, in a field of

well in Alachua county, und era long tho

The grand jury in its last presentments
called attention to the alarmingly crowded
and unhealthy condition of the Duval
county jail. As there were some five or six
United States prisoners confined there tit
the time, the presentment was forwarded to
the office of Attorney General Garland at
Washington. Previous complaints had
called attention to the fact that that these
prisoners—three white, the remainder col
ored—had been confined in the common
cage with tho county prisoners without
nni]x>r provision for cleanliness or health. It
hud I iron alleged also that it was the custom
to serve but one meal a day—in the morn
ing. After consultation with the au
thorities here and an examina
tion into the condition of other
county jails, the Attorney General
decided to make a change. The United
States Marshal is authorized to remove
United States prisoners from the jail at
Jacksonville to the jail at Monticelio. As
the revenue derived from the government
for custody and support of it.s prisoners goes
chiefly to the county Sheriff, that official in
Jefferson gains wlmt Sheriff Holland loses.
The Monticelio jail is declared by those who
have recently inspected it to be a model of
cleanliness and neatness. It is kept so
scrubbed and polished that it fairly shines.
It has accommodations for over thirty pris
oners, but as there are only six criminals
confined there at present, the accession of
government convicts cannot crowd it

THE MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY. JULY 5. 1887.
PROTESTANTISM IN MEXICO.
Tho Hard Field in Which American Mis
sionaries Have Been Struggling.
City of Mexico Letter to the St. Louis Globe-
Protestantism has not made great prog
ress in Mexico, and this is rather surpris
ing. Tho Mexican people overthrew tho
Church power in politics, banished the
Jesuits, the Dominicans and other orders
and drove the nuns from the convents at th3
bayonet’s point. They confiscated the prop
erty of the church, appropriated the tresa
ures of the altar ana in many ways inani
tested disapprobation witii the long-estab
lished religion of the country. Would it not
be supposed, naturally, that after such an
upheaval, such a pronounced manifestation
of sentiments, here would lie a field ripe for
the harvest 1 Representations of denomina
tions which were in sympathy with tho re
form movement thought so, and came to
Mexico to offer these people anew religion.
But what a welcome they received. They
were stoned and persecuted, and after many
years of struggling are just obtaining a foot
hold. In this population of 10,000,000 peo
ple there are about 5,000 Methodists and
perhaps as many Presbyterians. The rest
are Catholics or nothing. An attempt was
inudo to found a Reformed Christian Church
when the Liberal party gained the ascen
deucy and carried out its sweeping measures
of reform. This new Church movement
had its origin here, and it promised tot a
time to develop into something important.
The membership ran up to 0,000, but it fell
off to one-fourth that aud now little is heard
The Mexicans arc prejudiced against mis
sionaries, and show their feeling in various
ways. All the progress made by either
Presbyterians or Methodists has been by the
hardest kind of work. Corresponding effort
in the States would have produced much
greater result. With a few exceptions,
buildings occupied by the missionary
churches formerly belonged to religious or
ders, and were included in the property
confiscated in 1857, but that fact can hardly
account for the prejudice against Protes
tantism, for the former church property
is used in many other ways without
any manifestation of sentiment on the sub
The property which the Methodists own
and occupy as the headquarters for their
denomination in Mexico was once the clois
ters of the convent of San Francisco. It
is in the heart of the city, just across the
street from the Iturbide and Jardin Hotels,
and, as a real estate speculation, commands
the admiration of unbelievers. The place
was bought for something like #IB,OOO, at a
time when values were very low, aud is
worth nearly ten times that sum.
Tho “ex-convent,” as they say here in
speaking of such property, has had astrange
history since the confiscation. It was sold
to parties who put a temporary roof over
the large court and conducted a circus there
for quite a period Then it became a thea
tre, and when the hall of Congress at the
National Palace was burned, the Mexican
Deputies held their sessions in the covered
court. As the chanting of the nuns hud
liecn succeeded by the “whoop las” of the
ringmaster, so the brief strut of the actor
was soon over, and political eloquence awoke
the echoes in the corridors. But the Depu
ties moved to another theatre, and again the
clown had his say. The second circus com
pany failed, and then it was that representa
tives of the Methodist Missionary Board
made an offer for the property and secured
it. Tlie building lias I iron transformed
somewhat. A permanent roof was placed
over the court, and what was the open patio
is now the nudieneo-room.
TIIE METHODISTS BEGINNING.
Rev. Dr. William Butler, a writer of re
pute in the Church, and formerly of India,
was the founder of the mission in 1873, and
the late Bishop Gilbert Haven spent some
time here assisting and counseling in tho
work of organization. The present head of
the Methodist missionary work in Mexico is
the son of the founder, Rev. John IV. But
ler, a broad-shouldered, energetic, fearless
man, who joins business-like methods with
his religious conviction. When resident
Americans speak well of a missionary he is
pretty sure tube a rather superior person.
“John Butler,” as they call nim, for the
American in Mexico is seldom reverent, is
very popular with the colony. His Chris
tianity is of the practical order, as many an
impecunious and fever-smitten countryman
has found out.
In the old convent building, which eonsti
tutuos the missionary headquarters of tho
Methodists for all Mexico, are a church, a
chapel, a boys’ school, a printing office and
the residences of the pastor, tho presiding
elder and the native preacher. Mr. Butler
has uuder his charge here in the City of
Mexico an English-speaking congregation
and Sunday school, two native congrega
tions, two Mexican schools, and besides
these ilutios ho looks after the publication
work of tho mission and holds tho purse
A COME-TO-STAY POLICY.
Tlie Methodist policy in Mexico has been
to take hold of tlie important centres, and,
os soon as possible, secure good properties.
This gives the work a look of permanency
and inspires confidence on the part of the
natives that the missionaries have come to
stay. The next place to which attention
was given after the foothold was secured at
tho capital was Puebla, the so-called City of
Angels. There a part of the old Inquisi
tion property was purchased. It was, at
the tune, in possession of a Hebrew who had
no special love for Romanism or Protestant
ism but who could see no difference between
the clink of a missionary dollar mid a sec
ular coin. The Hebrew sold to Dr. Butler,
who turned the Inquisition quarters into a
chapel, school ana dwelling house. The
Puebla mission has outgrown its building
and a larger place has been secured near tho
centre of the city.
After Puebla, tho Methodists turned their
attention to the mining city of Pachuca. A
site was purchased and tvvo school houses
and a church were built upon it.
Orizaba, iu the State of Vera Cruz, was
the next location, and a good property was
secured there. When the Mexican Central
was built through, the field thus opened was
entered and missions were established at
Queretaro and Guanajuato in properties
purchased for the church. At Miration s, a
manufacturing village about thirty miles
from the City of Mexico, a location was se
cured, and upon it lias been erected the first
church built alter the style of American
places of worship in Mexico.
THE FIELD DIVIDED.
The two American boards which have un
dertaken the work of establishing Protest
autism in Mexico have gone at it m a fairer
spirit toward each other than is sometimes
manifested in the States, While the Method
ists have founded missions in the cities men
tioned, the Presbyterian* have chosen other
places, among them Zacatecas, Saltillo, San
Luis Putiisi, Jerez and Lerdo.
Each of the eight cities in which the
! Methodists have lieen working have branch
I missions in outlying towns, so that alto
j gather there are forty five organized Meth
j islist ■•oiigmgatloiis and twenty other towns
m which there is occasional preaching.
The mantis give 1,300 ■■oiiimuniottnti, but
it is explained t hat the policy of being ex
cessively strict in the reception of memliers
has Imen adopted, “boeuuse of the low con
dition of morals prevailing here.” The
number of “adherent*" is much larger,
reaching 5,000 This includes the children.
There are twenty-nine .Sabbath schools with
1,205 scholars and i wenty-clght day schools
with 1,204 attendants. One of the most im
portant branches of Methodist work in
Mexico i the Theological School at Puebla
where twenty-eight Mexican young men
are Icing educated for teachers and preach
THE SPREAD OF SKEPTICISM.
If Methodism or any other Protestant
faith Is to obtain a permanent lodgment j
and muko headway against the Romish
Church iu Mexico, it is through such a i
movement as this with the voung men. The
weak place in the ranks of thi* great Catho
lic army is where the young men stand. At I
the present time there is such a spread of I
unbelief aud speculative philpsqvhy within '
; this element that the Church authorities
are alarmed. The students in the colleges
( o the City of Mexico and at other edtiea
| t onal centres have their philosophical socie
i ties, and boldly assail the church. It is
J freely asserted by the leading priests
i that they fear this skepticism much
I more than they do the effort of the mission
l’ne Methodist Theological Seminary at
Puebla is at this time receiving special at
tention from the board in New York. A
' location has been secured and a grant of
funds has I icon made recently for a semi
nary building. At the present time tho
Methodists have la church property #438.-
790 and in schools aud orphanages #88,550,
nearly a quarter of a million invested iu
Speaking of the treatment received by
the missionaries, Mr. Butler says:
“In the early days a groat deal of perse
cution was pnuured, but that spirit seems to
have been mitigated, at least in the import
ant centres. While it is true that in some
of the outlying stations an occasional mob
is heard of, the missionaries do not have to
endure that continuous and violent opposi
tion that characterized the first few years
and which caused the opening of several
martyrs’ graves. We have been fortunate
in not losing any of tlie foreign missionaries
from violence, the victims having bean na
tive helpers. There is no doubt, hoxvever,
that there is a great deal of secret and lmder
hauded opposition in the cities as well as in
the outlying towns. Native members have
lost their employment, their friends, their
standing in society, because they have been
seen going into Protestant Churches. But
after all, tho majority of them have remain
ed firm, mid w r o know of every few cases of
personsgoing back to Romanism after once
embracing our faith.”
PRESS AND PULPIT.
A feature which has proven one of tho
most important aids to the mission w'ork is
the publishing house which the Methodists
conduct. As people go into the church they
pass between the editor’s room oq one side
and the book-room on the other. Upstairs
is the composition room, and just behind
the pulpit, are the presses. The Rev. Mr.
Butler and his associates find that they can
reach the eyes of the Mexicans when they
can not tho cars, and it is not certain that
the puipit would not have to go before the
On a visit to the United States in 1878,
Dr. Butler received from friends the sum of
#12,000, which he expended in a complete
outfit for a small printing office. His pur
chase Included a cylinder press, a steam en
gine, stereotyping machinery and material.
It will interest Methodists generally to learn
that from this printing office is now' issued a
publication which has the largest circulation
of any illustrated paper in Mexico, and is
MEXICANS AS READERS.
This paper goes into every one of the
twenty-eight States of Mexico. It is re
ceivea by President Diaz and each member
of his Cabinet, by every Governor in the
Republic, by all the public libraries and
reading-rooms and by many army officers ,
besides its general circulation. The title oi
the paper is El Abogado Cristiano Ilus
trado. Besides the paper, the printing of
fice turns out the text-1 Minks used in the
Methodist schools, the native ministry tracts
by the thousands, and a Sunday school
paper. In 1888 there were published 2,458,-
210 pages of religious literature. Mexicans,
even of tho common classes, do much more
reading than is generally supposed. They
are not patrons of newspapers, but the pub
lication and circulation of little pamphlets
and books is a great business in this country.
Everything, good and bad, in literature, is
translated into the language. These paper
bound hooks are carried around by hawkers
and sold in all parts of the country. In Ira
guato, which is one of the most "backward
of Mexican cities, an American recently ob
served the doltish-loosing porter of the little
hotel lying on a bench and poring over a
well-thumbed book hour after hour. His
curiosity at length prompted him to see
what was the xvork over w'hich the boy had
become so absorbed. It was a translation of
Not so Green as He Looked.
From tlie Chicago Herald.
“One of the most unsightly trailing boats,
I ever saw on the river,” said the old cap
tain, ‘‘pulled up at New Orleans. It was that
of an liulianian from ’way up the Wabash,
popularly supposed to be the home of tho
greenest "of all river people. ’Twas loaded
with corn, an article in demand, and lay
ers were numerous. The boatman’s price
xvas satisfactory, but he astonished and
drove into bursts of laughter all purchasers
by declaring that he would not accept gold
or silver in payment, as they were so much
counterfeited,"but that he must have Indi
ana paper money, as lie knew it was good.
The sale was made. The purchaser began
measuring to estimate the load. The
Hoosler said: ‘What are you doin’T Meas
uring tho load,’ the buyer replied. ‘Ah,
paw, you don’t. We’ll measure that corn
in the half-bushel. I’ve hearn enough
about you Sutheniers.’ Everybody laughed.
After considerable coaxing he agreed to
allow it to lie measured in the ‘new-fash
ioned’ way, but positrcely refused to accept
anything but Indiana paper money. Tno
buyer by hustling over the citv was finally
able to accommodate him. The man from
the Wabash sold tils boat to another
party and took steamboat passage at once
for the Nurtii. On unloading the corn it
was found that fully one-third of the space
intimated and paid for as corn was occupied
by a huge empty counter-like structure
running the entire"length of the boat. But
the honest Hoosier was out of reach before
the discovery was made.”
