Koyal Arch Chapter, 7:00.
Organizations seeking reformation
of deep-rooted abuses by the short
cuts of revolution, and whose pro
posed remedies for human wrongs
are as little to be desired as the
maladies themselves, arc formidable
chiefly from the streaking? of eter
nal right in their doctrine. Any
wcll-cquippcd state may suppress
by the strong arm of law the overt
acts instigated by apostles of the
secular reformation. It is another
matter, however, to deal with the
causes that give vitality to such per
suasions as communism, socialism,
nihilism and agrarianism. Efforts
to remove those causes are the best
preventive to the cropping up of
. menacing forms of antagonism to
their personal representatives and
the civil powers that protect them.
Rigorous repiession of democratic
violence, without any regard being
paid to the exciting motives, will
only result in the discontented
elements of society keeping under
cover until with greater numbers
drawn partly from baser strata than
former recruiting ground, and with
deeper-laid plots and more carefully-planned
schemes they arc able
to make attempts upon the constitu
ted order of things with more power,
fury and desperation than before.
As it is the righteousness that enters
into their cause which gives these
would-be reformers of a disjointed
world their extraordinary recupera
tive powers, so it is the greatly over
balancing ingredients of folly and
wrong in their declarations of prin
ciples and intentions which prevent
their cause from making headway.
Because priest and prince have been J
allias in oppression, and the church
lias vied with the castle in absorbing
the fruits of labor, they have, in
many cases, come to the rash eon
elusion that religion is one of the
wrongs that must go down before
avenging humanity. Infidelity is
therefore one of the tenets of the
proposed regenerated system. This
jfact shuts out the advocates of that
system from the sympathy of all
who believe in a Divine religion as
the manifcslatton of all right, and
who gauge, not religion by its
humanly-constituted exponents and
professors, but those by religion.
Ebullitions of violent words and
deeds are the natural outcome of
that infidelity, as, acknowledging no
power higher than man, these re
formers measuie the rights of man
by so much as his own arm may
effect of what his own intellect may
estimate to lie his highest good.
Were they truly secular, by tho
avoidanco of conflict with religion,
they would bo much more powerful,
as thero would then be allied with
them hosts of people who, while dis
satisfied with existing temporal con
ditions, yet believe truo religion to
be the salt of the earth in any state
The Agitators for land reform in
m. M M 111 T . -r kk .-.J 1 T
j Scotland havo not merely shown no
, disposition to become Identified with
I the human-worshipping revolution
ists of other countries. They lmve
taken the high ground of the Divine
right of the people to occupy the
soil and subsist upon it. Liko their
ancestors, who bought religious
liberty with their blood, standing
firm upon tho "Solemn League and
Covenant," so these opponents of
hereditary land monopoly have
adopted a Now Covenant of the
Scottish People," which Is n docu
ment that forbids the chivalrous
Scotch agrarians from being placed
in the same category as the lawless
ami faithless disturbers of the Con
tinent. This "Covenant" is issued
by the Scottish Land Restoration
League, formed at a great meeting
of the citizens of Glasgow, held in
the City Hall about a year ago. Be
low we give a few extracts to show
the exalted tenor of the New Cove
nanters' declaration of principles:
We hold that the earth was created by
Almighty God as a dwelllu ' place for the
ohildien of men, that it belongs and can
belong to no one class or generation, but
is a gift fresh from the Creator to each
generation whom he calls into being.
Wo hold that the cqual'iight which
every man thus derives fiom his Creator
to the use of the earth upon which that
Creator has called him is a right wlileh
no human power can abrogate or impair.
ami widen exist" ami must continue to
exist despite any or all laws, grants, de
vices or bargains which men have made
or liuiv make.
We hold that the denial of this Jlrst
and most important of all human rights,
the equal right to the possession ami ue
of tho natural clcmouls necessary to life,
is the primary cause of the frightful po
verty and -misery that, in spite of all our
advances In civilization, exist in our
country, and of tho vice, crime and dc
gtadation that spring fiom tills poverty.
We hold that the fact that the land of
Scotland the rightlul heritage of the
whole people of Scotland having by a
Ion;; course of usurpation and fraud been
made the private and exclusive property
of a few of their number Is the reason
why more than two-thirds of Scottish
families are compelled to live in houses
of ono or twe rooms; why wages arc so
pitifully low in every depailiuout of in
dustry; and why producers of wealth
those who earn their hi cad in the sweat
of their brow cat scant and bitter
bieail, while many of those who do
nothing to pioduce wealth revel in pro
fuse and wanton luxury, di awing from
tho Scottish people immense sums to be
.spent in riotous living abroad the rea
son why Scotsmen aie compelled to
emlgratu while great tracts of their
native land, from which men have been
diivcn, are given up to beasts and spoil.
Wc hold that those evils, which are
the re.Milt of transgressing and thwart
ing the declared purpose and benevolent
Intention of the Creator, can be cured
only by such a full and complete restor
ation 6f the land of Scotland to the
Scottish people as will secure to the
humblest and weakest of our number
his just share in the land which the
Lord our God has given us. To this
end wo have banded ourselves together,
and we hereby call upon the Scottish
people everywhere to follow our exam
ple and unite with us In a solemn league
and covenant to spare no effort and no
sneri lice to restore the soil of Scotland
to the people for whom it was intended,
and to leinove this great shame and
crime from the land wc love.
The Covenant goes on to draw
"a clear distinction between proper
ty jn land and property in the results
of labor," holding that the former
belongs in usufruct to the whole
community, the latter rightfully to
those who liavc produced it. The one
they propose to restore to the Scot
tish people, the other to leave with
those to whom it properly belongs.
Then comes one of the most extra
ordinary deliverances of the docu
ment. In the Irish land agitation,
much lilis been heard of the question
of compensation to landlords, but
the Scotch Covenanters reverse the
qucslioji, in the following passage :--And
although it may be justly held,
that those who have so long enjoyed the'
proceeds of tho common property should
be made not merely to restore it, but to
pay proper compensation to those who
have been unjustly disinherited, we will
not raise this question of compensation,
but will be content with the jestoratiou
of the land to the people.
The Covenanters propose to effect
the proposed restoration by "the
simple and obvious expedient of
shifting all taxation on to the value
of land, irrespective of its use or
improvement, and finally talcing ail
ground rent for public purposes,"
This is their method:
As a first step to tills cud we shall de
mand of our representatives in Pnrlla
mcut a i (.'Imposition of the tax of 4s. in
the pound on the cuircnt value of land,
whether it bo leutcd, or used, or kept
idle by its holder, and wo shall also de
maud a measure giving all towns, bo
roughs, uiul cities tho lower to collect
all tatcs fiom an assessment upon the
letting oriental value of land, exclusive
of buildings or improvement, and Ir
respective of use.
An appeal is made in the conclud
ing parts of the Covenant, for an
organized agitation to bring about
tho realization of its principles.
An item in a California paper
reads: "Experiments have shown
that from the pulp of the Florida

is a fresh argument for tho Hawaiian
paper mill uo have advocated. Tlicro
is no contemptible market for rope

plantations must use up a good deal
of cordage in a year.
Elsewhere wc publish an editorial
article and a letter from the Adver
tiser, retracting the libellous letter
of Mr. .7. W. Liming which appeared
in that paper on the 2nd inst. In
consideration of this retraction and
apology being published in three
local papers and the legal expenses
being paid by the defendant, our
local reporter withdraws bis com
plaint of criminal libel.
Lately we gave a news paragraph
about a wrestling bout between the
famous Scotch athlete, Duncan C.
Ross, and another man, in San
Francisco. Since then Ross lias
decided to give up athletics and
also a saloon business he owns, and
enter the pulpit. He says be will
not pose as a reformed drunkard,
for lie never was a drunkard, no
make a specialty of tho temperance
cause. His object is to do good to

MR. LUNINC AND THE "BULLETIN."
In another column appears a letter
from Mr. J. AV. Liming, retracting
certain statements of his made in a
previous letter to the Advkktiskk,
which reflected upon the staff of the
Daily Bulletin, and apologizing for
the same. Mr. Luning's first hasty
letter was inserted inadvertently in
the absence of the responsible editor
of this paper, who desires to express
his thanks to the gentlemen who
were assailed by it for their recogni
tion of the fact that it could only be
by mistake that such a document
found its way into the columns of the
Mn. Editou: In a letter written
by me and published in the Pacific
CoMjir.itciAi, Aitvr.UTisuit of the Ud
insti, I stated that the report of tho
Police Court proceedings published
in the Daily Bulletin of the 2nd
inst., was incorrect. I further stated
"That the said reporter is utterly in
competent to attend to any of the
duties pertaining to his office, daily
facts as per issue plainly show ; but
that such errors should be permitted
reflects alike on the editor, manager
and reporter, and unless an apology
be tendered I will take legal mea
sures for redress."
I now- wish to state that the
records of the Polico Court do show
that II. Luning forfeited bail of $10
on the 2nd inst., on a charge of
"disturbing the quiet of the night,"
and that the report of Police Court
proceedings published in the Daily
Bulletin of tho 2d inst., was cor
rect. I wisli further to state that the
statement made by mo concerning
the reporter of the Bulletin is un
true and unwarranted by any facts
known to mo at tho time when I
wiotc said communication, or known
to mo now ; that it is calculated to
do unmerited injury to tho reputation
of said reporter ; that I had no causo
for using such defamatory language
oV threatening legal proceedings, and
I therefore retract such statement
and threat, and hereby tender a
humblo apology to the editor, mana
ger and reporter of the Daily
