Bev.S.S. Thomas, of St. Paul's Episcopal
Church, Replies to Ulsbop IrelandKev.
John Stafford Portrays the Beauty of
At. St. Paul's church last evening, the
Kev. E. S. Thomas preached from the fol
"All scripture is given by inspiration of
God."II Timothy 111, 16 verse. He took for
his subject the thews: "'Granting
the authenticity and genuineness of the Bible
to be human facts which ordinary history can
prove the inspiration of the Bible can be made
more satisfactory to the human reason than
any theory of papal infallibility."
He first referred to hia three previous lec
tures. In the first, on the rule of faith, he
bad proven the authenticity of the scriptures
by the continuous testimony of Christian
writers for 1,800 years, by existing liturgies
and monumental testimony. His second
lecture had referred to existing manuscripts
and versions and quotations of the fathers
substantiating the genuineness of the Bible,
and the third lecture had showed how the
parts were brought together forming the
Bible, and settled before the days of Hippo
litusbefore A. D. 170.
He now proceeded to prove tho inspiration
of the Bible, stating that it was as capable of
proof as infallibility of the popes. The
question.he said,between Bomanists and Prot
estants was whether the dogma of an inspired
book or the dogma of an inspired pope is
more worthy of belief, and in settthng the
question an appeal to reason must be made.
He quoted in support of this assertion
Bishop ltyan of St. Louis. From this
Catholic authority it appears that the first
thing for a Romanist to decide, and that too
by a distinct appeal to the human reason, is
the unerring character of a pope's decretal
when issued in the manner prescribed by
himself. The question first was when is
a papal decree infallible. He answered
this by quoting from Cardinal Manning,
After which he referred again to Gregory's
letter signed with his pontifical name, and
theiefore ex-cathedra, which declares that
tho title of universal bishop is a profane
term therefore ho argued that popes using it
aie guilty of profanity.
Again referring to Cardinal Manning he
said, by this authority the pope is infallible
in questions not only of faith and morals,
but all facts or truths in contest with faith
and morals. Hence was it that he had re
ferred to the verse of the 5th chapter of
John, which Sixtus Vth, under
anathema made to be a part of
God's word. He still declared the
verse is fund in no Greek manuscript
before the tenth century. He denied that
Tertullian, Cyprian, Palgentius quote the
verse. Tishendorf and Dean Alford say
there is no reason for supposing the verse
He next answered the replies to his allega
tion of fallibility on Morals, quoting Inno
cent III., Gregory and Alexander VI.
Referring to the council of Jerusalem, Mr.
Thomas could not understand Bishop Ire
land's remarkable statement that St. James
did pass sentence, and after St. Peter had
spoken, still he did not preside. He could
not understand how one could pass sentence
and not preside. Speaking of the
"rock," Mr. Thomas thought Bishop Ire
land had forgotten that there was but one
rock in the passage so often quoted by
Rome, if that is referred to Christ, there IB
none left for Peter.
Alluding to the "uniformity of the Romish
church" he quotes from Manning again:
"There have been since the council of Trent
two opinions among Catholic theologians.
The faculties of Louvain and Douai declare
it an intolerable and great blasphemy if any
shall affirm that any otiose word can be
found in scripture. All the words of scrip
ture are so many sacraments or mysteries.
Every phrase, syllable, tittle or point is full
of a divine sense. The Bellarmine opinion
is that the sense and substance of scripture
are inspired not every particular word or
letter. Here are confessedly two theories in
this wonderfully uniform church.
Referring to Bishop Ireland's assertion
that he held the theory of the atonement
what the church decreed, Mr. Thomas asked
what has the church decreed? and showed
these three theories, that of Oxenham, An
eelm and Grotius.
That Peter had been to Rome, Mr. Thomas
thought he himself ought to believe, for said
he "I have seen the very spot where Peter
was crucified, the very hole where the cross
was placed, and brought away with me a
handful of earth as a souvenir. But as
every visitor does this, it occurred to me that
the hole by this time ought tobelarger. Can
it be that a pious fraud is acted at such a
As another instance of the preposterous
doctrine of infallibility, he said that
Sixtes V. put out a new edition
of the scriptures, in 1590. The edition
appeared with the famous Acternus ille, pre
fixed in which Sixtus "affirmed with charac
teristic decision the plenary authority of the
edition for all future time." This new vul
gate, on account of its many changes and
amendations, caused great cansternation in
the Roman communion. After Sixtus'
death, his successor thought seriously of pro
hibiting it. Bellarmine, the great Galilean
divine at this time, was at the highest of his
power and influence. He visited Rome and
persuaded the new pope to give up his in
tention, and instead of prohibiting the
books to correct them, so as to save the
honor of Pope Sixtus V., and have the Bible
reprinted under the name of Sixtus V. and a
preface added declaring that certain errors,
by the carelessness of printers or others, had
through haste crept into the previous edition.
He quoted the narration of this trans
action from Bellarmine's own words.
The advice was taken, as the preface
of the Clementine vulgate bears witness.
The reverend gentleman took in succes
sion every point offered by Bishop Ireland,
which referred to his previous discourses,
and in conclusion of a long and elaborate
discourse he referred to the terms religious
despotism and religious communism, ex
plaining their meaning, saying that all re
ligionists believe in authority, because they
believe in God and his revelation, and all re
ligionists believe in liberty, because they be
lieve in the divine origin of the human rea
son. The trouble comes in adjusting the
two. The Romanists, the Greeks and Angli
cans, and the Congregatinalists draw the
line at different points. China is called a
despotism, England a constitutional mon
archy, and the United States a republic.
Corresponding to these are three forms
of church polity. Romanism puts
the supreme authority in the church, Greeks
and Anglicans, co-ordinate the Bible, the
church and right reason Congregational
ists believe in the Bible, but when they come
to the interpretation of the Bible, as they
have no co-ordinate authority, they depend
entirely upon literary criticism. It was in
view of this fact that I used, he said, the
language which has been attributed to me,
namely: The answer which makes the
Bible the sole authority in matters of faith,
but at the same time concedes the unlimited
right of private interpretation, has given us
every variety of creed and sect which the
human mind can conceive. I? has proved
most utterly destructive of organic unity in
the church of God.
But if on the one hand license has caused
division, so has uaerped authority on the
other. It was the usurpetion of the Roman
church which first caused a division in Zion.
The Greeks were the first Protestants. Now
it is just as absurd for Romenists to call the
Greeks and Anglecans religious communists
as it would be for China to -speak of the
English government as a communism, and
it would be just as absurd for the Episcopal
church to call the Congregationalists com
munists, as for England to speak of the
United States as a rank communism. The
true communist is the ratonalist. wh*
admits no such thing as authority who de
Greeks, Anglicans, Presbyterians and Con
gregationolists do no not agree' at what point
the line between authority and liberty
should be drawn, bat as they recognize each
other as Christians in virtue of a common
baptism, they hope by friendly discussion to
bring these points in dispute closer and
closer until, in God's own good time, they
with the reformed Roman church will be
united in one communion and fellowship.
Whether, that time will come before the
dawning of the milleneum, or whether the
consummation of such a glorious thought
will not be the milleneum itself is known
only to God alone. For this blessed con
summation we hope for this we pray, and
oh, when the end comes, and we stand in the
full eyes of God's truth, how every sincere
Romanist and honest Protestant will smile
at those easy problems which now puzzle so
greatly and separate so widely the desciples
of Christ. In heaven, if not before, all the
mysteries of God's word will be fully re
vealed. No infirmity of flesh and blood
will enter the paradies of God.
Jackson Street Methodist Chureh.
At the morning service at this church,
Rev. John Stafford, the pastor, took for his
text, Hebrews, 13th chapter, first verse: "Let
brotherly love continue." My text is one of
the most beautiful and important injunctions
in the word of God. Brotherly love has
done more to build up the kingdom of Jesus
Christ in the world than all other things
combined. When arguments and eloquence
have failed, this element has done its work
and the world has been led to acknowledge
the supremacy of the religion of Jesus
Christ and, so long as we strive to emulate
this the church will be built up, but if on
the contrary we become cold and lukewarm,
we shall be a stumbling block to Christians
and bring disgrace on the church. These
thoughts have led me to choose this text.
Brotherly love is peculiar to the church of
Christ the ancients had it not it did not
enter into the composition of their religion,
and when they saw what this spirit did
among the brethren of Christ's church
they saw wherein they were at a loss, for
such a thing had never been known among
them. There ought to be a marked differ
ence between the love of the church and the
love of the world. The world expects men
to love for a selfish purpose, in order to reap
some gain, and we can hardly expect any
thing different. How attentive we are to
those in the world, from whom we expect
some favor and assistance, either in money
or influence, but in the church it is not so
it cannot be. Our love should be an unself
ish love. Religion begets a love for each
other that is not of this selfish nature. It
teaches us that we are to love one another
because we are brethren. Our love goes out
to the stranger, who is a Christian, and we
feel that we have an interest in his welfare.
It matters not whether we expect to meet
him again or not, we take him by the hand,
for he is our brother, and God is our father.
The love of the people of the
world is uncharitable. If one does wrong
and it touches the interest of one of their
number, they withdraw their confidence
from him, will not employ him nor allow
others to do so. How hard and harsh one
poor sinner is towards another but, if we
are true Christians, we are not so if the
Lord is our God, it is not so.
"BEAB YE ONE ANOTHEB'S BTJBDENS, &c.
Let this be the Christian's motto. We
find this, and other commandments, followed
up by examples. Peter had grievously
sinned and denied his Lord not once, but
twice and thrice, and with oaths. When he
repented, he sought out Christ and was for
given. Christ not only forgave Peter, but
he restored him to the confidence of his
brethren, and, in less than fifty days, Peter
was restored, not only to the fellowship of
the church, but to his office in the ministry,
and he preached the great sermon on the
day of Pentecost.
What an example is this? How much more
willing is God to restore erring ones than
are we. If a minister in St. Paul would on
this Sabbath day, instead of preaching, de
nounce God with curses, would any one of
the congregations restore him to its confi
dence, and his work in fifty days? I am
afraid it would be a dangerous experiment to
try. This was the love the hrethern had for
Peter he erred but he came back and re
ceived the favor of God and the confidence
of his brethern. We are brethern, members
of the same household, equal partakers of
His love: for there is none good, no not one.
"Love doeth no ill." If this is so how
ought we to feel towards one another.
We are to love demonstratively. Let us
look into Egypt. We see the brethern of
Joseph. They come and look upon the long
lost brother, now mighty in power they
know him not, but they bow before him.
Joseph recognizes his brithren, but does he
upbraid them? No. When he saw them he
wept, for they were of his flesh and blood.
He made himself known and showed them
every attention, and when they left him to
go back to their own country, his parting in
junction was: "See that ye fall not out by
the way." What a lesson is this love. The
church has not lost this spirit it has been
retained and perpetuated to this day. We
see examples of brotherly love in our fami
lies. The strong try to bear the burdens of
the weak. We may increase this love by
sympathising with one another by gathering
around the same table. God is our common
Father the spirit is our common Comforter
but, the devil sometimes comes and by aid
of a lively imagination, we are led to think
we have been wronged in some way, andperformances,
our peace is desturbed. Adversity comes to
us, and we think we have not the same at
tention shown ns, and that we are no longer
wanted, because our purse is not so long and
heavy as it was in days past. Let us try to
be Christ-like and evil imagining will be far
from us. Let us sympathize with the un
fortunate as He did with the widow, as she
was following the remains of her only son
to the grave How His heart went out in
compassion to her when he took upon Him
self God, and commanded the dead to arise.
We can increase this brotherly love by exer
cising charity towards one another. We all
say and do things we are sorry for, and if
others do the same why should we condemn?
Let us not be always on the alert for those
things that offend. Let us look oyer and
Charity covereth a multitude of sins, and
we should cultivate it. If we were as care
ful to magnify the good as the bad, what a
different state of things we should have.
This is not the way of the world. Brotherly
love brings us nearer, and does not separate,
and with this spirit we shall grow in grace.
We belong to the same household, and let
us manifest this feeling towards one another.
We shall all stand before God, and He shall
say: "When I was anhungered, ye gave me
to eat when I was athirst ye gave me to
The New Driving Park.
Parties interested in the movement for a
new driving park, report that the enterprise
promises to be a success. The Sixth ward
ground, embracing the Red Cap base ball
park has been decided to contain more ad
vantages than any other available locality,
and as these grounds, including the two
grand stands and fencing, can be secured on
most favorable terms, the park will be lo
cated here, if anywhere. It is understood
that the necessary stock for fitting up the
grounds in good shape has been promised,
and that the necessary survey will be had at
once, and an estimate prepared
of the costs, when a meeting
of those interested will be held, and the
matter definitely determined upon one way
or the other. There is no question that
driving grounds at this point, in the bands
of a wide-awake and honorable horseman,
would be popular with trainers, and other
horsemen, while the proposed programme of
Saturday afternoon trotting matinees, with
cheap admissions, would tend greatly to
popularize the sport.
INTEBTIEW WITH MB. DOB AN.
Chairman of the Senate Investigating- Com-
Learning that Hon. Michael Doran, of
Le Sueur, was in the city yesterday, a Gixma
representative, searching for news, called
upon him at the Metropolitan, and after that
never failing topic, the weather, and the war
prospects in Europe had been duly disposed
of, business was reached as follows:
ReporterHow did it happen, Mr. Doran,
that your investigating committe made so
long an adjournment?
Mr. D.There seemed to be no time when
we could all conveniently meet sooner. I
only had to be gone two dayB, and the com
mittee could have gone right along, but
Messrs. Drew and Edgerton could only stay
through the week, when other engagements
called them away. We were just beginning
to go into the accounts of the institution,
and that is a long task, and there was no
use to begin on that until we were ready to
go right along.
Rep.Do you not expect to investigate
the question of sane persons being in the
Mr. D.There was some question relative
to the extent of the inquiry which we were
authorized to make. We were not quite cer
tain as to our powers. We were to consider
the treatment of patients and the financial
management, and some claimed that we were
to stop there.
Rep.The public expect you are going to
investigate it in all its departments, and
there are a good many reports about sane
persons in the asylum.
Mr. D.I know that is what the people
want, but we must be governed by our au
thority. We were told one man was in the
asylum to avoid going to the penitentiary,
but did not ascertain the facts.
Rep.Will you not call the meeting of the
committee sooner than July?
Mr. D.I can't tell for certain until after
the impeachment trial. We shall all be here
then and will consult upon the question.
Rep.Have you the means to continue
the investigation for a long period?
Mr. D.The Legislature only gave us
$400 to investigate an institution that has
cost the State over a million dollars, and
which has $122,000 for this year, and that is
already exhausted, but we shall go right
along jnst the same.
The talk became general. Mr. Doran
then gave the reporter quite a graphic ac
count of the call on Dr. Bartlett when the
committee was refused permission to go
through the asylum alone, all of which cor
responded to what the GLOBE has already

Some Interesting Data Relative to land

Flowing Along the tine of the 17. P. K.
B.Brief Sketch of the Road from It

Few Suggestions as to the Policy of
Land Grants to Railroads In General.
Noticing the immense crowds daily con
gregating in the office of the Northern Pa
cific land department, in this city, a repre
sentative of the GLOBE was induced to make
inquiry of the cause thereof with the view
of laying before its many readers, a brief
account of the business of the department,
and also an idea of the amount of immigra
tion now finding its way to the fertile prai
ries along the line of the road.
Entering the office, the GLOBE man met
with and was most courteously received by
the gentlemanly chief of the land depart-
mentMr. J. B. Power, and on stating his
mission, was assured of his readiness to give
ail information in his possession After a brief
investigation it was ascertained that during
the months of January and February last
passed, the company's land sales amounted
to 55,376 acres. These months, however,
hardly afford a fair idea of the immense
amount of business transacted in this line,
as there is generally very little being done
in the winter months in comparison with the
spring and summer. For the present
month (March) the books have not been
written up, but the sales, it is safe to say,
will fully equal those of the past months.
But the most encouraging feature.said Mr.
Power, of all this business, and that which
promises so much for the future interest of
the road is the number of persons making
purchases of lands, and thereby becoming
interested in the welfare and prosperity of
that section of the country and of the road.
But few sales are made in large tracts, the
greater portion of the sales being in lots of
640 acres and less, and as a rule, to parties
who will at once settle upon and improve
The immigration to these lands is already
assuming the appearance of a rush, and a
big one at that, and early as it yet is in the
season, over a thousand people have passed
through the St. Paul office for different
points on the line, besides the numbers go
ing direct from all parts of the country that
do not call at the St. Paul office. Most of
the people now going on to the line of this
road are new-comers, coming thus early so
as to secure their lands before, as they say,
"the rush commences," and they all report
"there are lots of people from
where we come that will be
here as soon as the spring fairly
opens and we want to get in before the
The indications also point unmistakably
to the fact that in a short time, there will
be on the way hundreds of families, coming
to occupy the lands that were secured last
season, and at the proper time of year, a
traveler along the line will see thousands of
acres of the rich Minnesota and Dakota
prairies being broken up and prepared for
SALES OF GOVEBNMENT LANDS.
In addition to the number of acres sold by
the railroad company during the past year,
the sale of government lands under the
homestead and pre-emption laws has been
equally as large and indicates even more
plainly than the sale of lailroad lands,
the rapid settlement of the country.
From the records of the Fargo United States
land office, we find that during the year 1877
there were 1,065 new claims taken, covering
203,915 acres in that district alone. This is
one only of five land officesthose of Du
luth, St. Cloud, Detroit, Fergus Falls and
Fargo respectively, in all of which the
lands pertaining to the road are situated.
CHABACTEB OP THE IMMIGBANTS.
The immigrants to these lands are princi
pally people from Michigan, Wisconsin,
northern Ohio, northern Illinois, Iowa and
southern Minnesota, once pioneers in these
States, and having made good farms there,
are selling out at prices ranging from
$25 to $100 per acre and are
now coming to thi& country
with capital, experience, families of grown
up sons and daughters, and securing farms
of sufficient area to make their own "family
colony," at from $2.50 to $5.00 per acre.
As might be expected, such a class of immi
grants will soon be in better condition than
was possible, even in the best of the old
homes they have left behind.
THE BESULT OF JUDICIOUS MANAGEMENT.
This influx of settlement and the conse
quent great absorption of lands along the
line of the Northern Pacific road is the re
sult, as the GLOBE representative believes,
in the main, of the liberal and judicious
management of the land department of
the company. Through its admirable
management, the richness of the lands have
become we 1-known all over the United
States and in Europe, and this of course, is
the prime attractive feature for immigrants
But this inducement is supplemented in giv
ing all settlers reduced rates of fare for
themselves and families, as well as half rates
of freight on their household goods, farm
ing implements and live stock.
THE POLICY OF LAND OBANTS TO BAILBOADS.
The remarkable and now acknowledged
success of this company in developing and
settling up the country along the line of its
road is suggestive of some thoughts in con
nechon with the question now before the
people of the whole country, relative to the
making of land grants to railroad companies.
This road, the N. P. K. B., was first com
menced in 1871, at which time the popula
tion along its present entire line, was but
some 2,500, with scarcely an acre under cul
tivation. To-day there is a cultivated area
of some 170,000 acres, and a population of
not less than 35,000. Other results may be
traced in a surplus wheat crop of last year
of over one million of bushels, and in the
fact that along its line, towns and villages
have sprung up with their stores, mills, man
ufactories, schools, churches and every other
advantage found in older and well known
This advancement, strange and remark
able as it is, during six years of the most de
pressing period the country has known for
years, is the direct result of making acces
sible, by the building of a railroad, a rich
agricultural country that for years had re
mained in the possession only of the vaga
bond Chippewa and Sioux Indians.
Comparing the condition of the region
traversed by the N. P. with what it
was before the road was built, and what it
now is, both as to the result to that region
and upon the revenue of the general govern
ment, and supposing the road had not been
built, a just view of the subject is suggested.
Other regions opened by the building of rail
roads that never could have seen an exist
ence but for a land grant, can tell the same
story of good results to the country at large.
The idea that the mere holding of public
domain by the government stimulates set
tlement and advances the development of
the country, is absurd. Data from the Uni
ted States land office records show the almost
complete absorption and occupancy of gov
ernment lands within the limits of railroad
grants, and outside of them an almost entire
absence of settlement. On the other hand,
it is an undoubted fact that the richest and
best lands on the continent will forever re
main unoccupied until made accessible by
railroad or other means by which they can
be reached, and their surplus products mar
f WHAT rOBFEITUBS MXANS^, A/i,
The forfeiture of land grants and the
restoration of the land to the United States
a doctrine now sought to be made popular
in the Eastcan never become so in the
West, where the question is fully understood.
At the present juncture, such a doctrine
means nothing more or less than the retard
ing of enterprises now so essential as the
means of giving employment to thousands
of enforced idlers all over our land. It also
means the expenditure of millions annually
by the government, in the care and discipline
of its red children. It means the stoppage
of immigration to the West, and the leaving
unoccupied for years to come, of millions of
rich acres now so eagerly looked to by the
landless of our own and other countries,
as the place for them so soon as they can be
reached. It means, in fact, the aiding
in everything that tends to retard progress,
hinder development, and injure all else of
material good to the country at large.
A FEW CONCLUSIONS OF FACTS.
Such-are a few, and a few only of the in
evitable results of the forfeiture system, or
the abrogation of the land-grant policy. In
this time of stagnation and business depres
sion, the true policy of the government is to
aid in this and every other way, the develop
ment and building up of the country. To
this, railroads are an indispensable adjunct,
and as a necessary sequence, whatever tends
to their injury must also prove a barrier to
the settlement and development of the coun
try. The building of the Northern Pacific
and the land-grant was the great inducement
theretohas proved a boon to the entire
region through which it passes, affording as
it does, the only means of communication
therewith,, and its only avenue of transporta
tion for its products. That Congress should
now interpose and hamper an enterprise BO
auspiciously begun, and working out such
beneficent results, would be not only a mis
fortune, but a positive crime.

good barn, good well, plenty of small fruit. Also, 36
acres of meadow and timber land 2*4 miles from cus
tom house can cut 40 tons of hay on the land. Will
sell together or separately price $2,500 for both.
Also, for sale cheap, 4 miles from city, 140 acres un
improved land, on Sunfish Lake road. If taken soon
I can sell this tract very cheap: soil good. I also have
a number of lots for sale in West St. Paul. Remem
ber this, that the reason that property in the Sixth
ward is more desirable than any other part of the
city, is that all property in that ward is exempt from
the payment of the principal and interest of one
million dollars of the debt of the city of St. Paul. I
also have several small improved farms for sale near
the city. Inquire of E. WOOD, Law and Seal

the survivors had fallen off 131,217 machines, sod the annual sales of the Singer's leading competitor had
fallen off 19.529 Machines.
Meanwhile the sales of the SINGER MACHINE Increased from 181,260 to 262,316 Machines and even
this enormous number was, despite the "bard, tunes." still further increased in 1877 to
