It would appear from the proceed lugs of
the Maine tlcmocrntlc state convention, as
well as from the nominations, that tlio
party give up the contest In advance. The
nomination for govci nor Joseph Tltcomli
-Is a respectable one, and that Is all that
ran be said about It. He It n iiiim of some
wealth, almost entirely unknown, without
any particular Inlluenoc or stiength any
where, and Is one of that class of men
usually nominated when n party expects to
"do nothing," and make a splendid success
hi that kind of doing.
The "S. ('." check Is again brought up.
1 1 is said that (ieneral Clinton H. Fisk, of
St. Louis, asserts that Oakes Ames told
him, two months previous to ht death,
that lie was mistaken and Colfax was
light! that 'Dillon undoubtedly paid the
check to him, Ames. I'er contra, n gentle
man of unquestionable lellablllty states
that Mr. Ames told him, within three days
of his death, that the check was paid to
Colfax, showing him, at thcsnmotline cor
robaratlve documents, which are now in
the possession of Mr. A.'s family. This Is
an unseemly controversy, but It Is due to
Mr. Colfax, as well as to the memory of
Oakes Ames, that his sons, II such a docu
iiK-nl or documents exist, to publish them,
especially after the publicity given to
Drew's letter, and the alleged statement of
I.H IT .SOIPI.Y Ti:i:ll,IU.lI, ?"
The rase of "Lord (lordon (iordon," in
he ostentatiously styles himself, has al
ready orruplrd moie space In tin- news
papers of the country, than the Importance
of the Individual concerned would, per
haps, warrant. He may be, for all we
know, and, probably, is for the evidence
tends so to show an Imposter, a swindler
and scoundrel. He undoubtedly deserves
imprisonment and the same punishment
that ought to, and would be meted out to
any other swindler and criminal of the
same stamp, if he Is guilty of the swlndl
lug charged against him, and we believe
that he Is, ho Is doubly deserving of the con
tempt and detestation of all decent persons
for he has added Ingratitude the basest of
all sins to his crimes. Confined In prison,
or about to be consigned thereto, an ac
quaintance, who seems to have bad con
fidence either In his innocence or honor,
stepped forward, furnished bail for his ap
pearance, and allowed him, once more, to
go at will. Since that time, we learn ot
no more swindling operations or climes on
his part, but the next that that we hear of
liim is his (light Into Canada, in order, us
it Is claimed, to escape punishment for his
misdeeds and elude his ball. We have made
the statement upon the authority of his bit
terest opponents, nnd are willing to admit
that it is nil true, and, even, to go further
and say, for the sake of the argument, that
he Is the blackest of villains, tho most har
dened of criminals, the foulest blot upon
society, a shame and disgrace to the age
and civilization, and, In addition to all
this, has added thereto the base sin of In
gratitude. Taking him under either of
both descriptions, he made bis way Into
Manitoba, whither incited, probably, by
the offer of large pecuniary rewards, lie
was followed by two or more detectives
from Minnesota, arrested on foreign soli,
the attempt made to forcibly abduct him,
and bring him secretly, and against his will,
into the United States, here tn1c Imprison
ed. and, ultimately, tried nnd punished.
These Minnesota oftlcers, If they were
olllcers at all, had no authority whatever to
arrest this miserable swindler in Manitoba
or In any other than one state in the United
States or the world. They were simply
"kidnappers" or "abductors," yet the
Springfield Jlepubllcan says, in Its Issue of
Tuesday, that "If any offense at all was
" committed, it was of a technical nature,
" rather than an overt and heinous breach
" of the peace, and so it would be regarded
" anywhere, where the judicial authority
' did not completely lose Its wits with
" every little breeze of popular emotion.''
It is then, according to this authority only
a "technical" offense, and uot a "heinous
breaclrof the peaco" to kidnap nnd endea
vor, forcibly, to abduct an Individual, with
out authority of law. It did not always
think so. It thought and wo nil agreed
with It that something more than n "tech
nical" breach of decency was committed
when the editor of n New Kngland news
paper was detained In custody over night,
in irw urK city, In strict conformity to
law, anil "by authority of law," at the in
stance o) the notorious Jim Fisk. It
thought then, and we thought, it to le a
'heinous" and gross outrage upon the
liberty of the person and freedom of the
press, although It was brought about In
compliance with the letter of the law.
What would it have thought, what should
we all have thought, If this "gross outrage
on the rights of a citizen" as Frederic
Hudson justly rails It had been perpetrat
ed without any color or shade of legal au
thority ? Would It have been "regarded
any w hen-" an offense, "if any offense at
all was rommittcd," of n "technical na
ture," lather than a "heinous breach of the
peace ?" Yet wherein rests the distinction,
save mai we lormer would navo Dcen a
grosser "outrage on the rights of a citizen"
than the latter. Character, reputation,
standing, influence nnd wealth are no more
regarded by the law, In thein dealing with
personal rights, than their absence. If,
instead of "Lord Gordon Gordon," the
swindler nnd Imposter, Alexander Hamsey,
the Senator In Congress from Minnesota,
had been kidnapped and the attempt had
l,een made to abduct him, it would have
made all the difference In the world
What a tremendous sensation would havo
been produced In both hemispheres ! Vet
the one Is entitled to tho same no more or
no less protection as the other.
If the attempt had been made to kidnap
and abduct Senator Hamsey, however, the
tables would have been turned, and Cana
dlans would have been operating In tho
United Btatcs. If, n uch an event as In
this the baffled kidnappers and abductors
bad been arrested and brought before one
of our courta for trial, how long, think
jou, woum mo people, the nres nr the ml
mlnUtratlon have tolerated tho presence of
aBrltUh minister or consul, who should
umwor publish such card as havi.m.
nMfd from James W. Taylor, our consul ?
Woe be to the party or administration that
should attempt to palliate, In the least, any
such consular acts. Is nnyonc foolish
enough to believe that ball would be so
fixed that tho kidnappers could leave the
country and escape trial? Would ball have
been accepted of the St. Albans raiders, If
they had been secured, yet they only "kid.
napped" money, and "abducted" horses
and other property. .John C. Fremont has
been condemned to a specified punishment
by the courts of France, but Is at large In
tho United States. Supposing some French,
man should come over hen-, quietly "ar
rest" Fremont and just as they were ready
to place him on board of a fast sailing
steamer, prcpaicd for tin; purpose, they
should, In turn, be arrested, wheicln would
bo the difference between the two rases?
Would any newspaper say that "If any of.
"fense at all was committed, It was of a
"technical nature, rather than an ovcit and
"heinous breach of the peace"? We trow
not, neither do we believe the Frenchmen
would be allowed to escape the country.
Would n single French newspaper be found
to say, as the Jtcnublleaii says In this case
-changing the word Canadian Into Ameil- t
can--"mere liuinanlty would turtmc 10 un
American premier an order" fur the ic
lease of the prisoners? Gordon is :i miser
able, insignificant swindler, but his prison
is as sacied and his rights s seemed as
that of the greatest statesman of the hind.
There was a time, and It is not so many
years ago, w hen we were wont to regard
the liberty of the person as something
more than "technical" even between states.
We are aware, of course, that this Gordon
affair Is an "outrage" attempted to be
committed by citizens of the United States
of foreign territory, but the Illustrations of
its "technical" nature can be drawn from
Inter-state as well as from International
history. The only dllfcience being that
the matter becomes graver anil i-ioie com
plicated when it Invohes a foreign country,
than when it is confined todlffeient states
under the same general government. Tin
last fugltlu- slave bill cannot have been
forgotten. It was an act passed under the
constitution, and approved by the Presi
dent. It was, as we believe, uncalled for.
unnecessary, unrepubllcan, harsh and
brutal, but all of this nnkes no difference
now. The people of the north, however,
thought that the rights of a poor, forlorn
beggared.tlecing slave were not "technical.''
The people of Vermont, as, also, nf Massa
chusetts, had a very strong impression
upon this subject. They thought it was
something more than "technical" for an
United States marshal, or Ids deputy, even
when he had a warrant In Ids hands, piop-
erly signed and Nsiied by a court of com
petent juilsdictlon, to arrest one of these
forlorn, ignorant, lleeiug negroes. Ver
mont and Massichusetts -that is, the large
mass of the people thereof railed It, and
unless we are most wooftilly Ignorant, the
Springfield llepublimn, likewise, termed it
"kidnapping." Oh ! the Indignation and
righteous wrath that the "abduction" of
Thomas Sims from Boston occasioned, and
the burning words drawn out from Theo
dore Parker because n court, engaged in
the preliminaries necessary for the ren
dition of' a fugitive, kept on, alone, amid
lloston courts, in its legal but unholy
work, when the death of Webster was an
nounced. Who has forgotten the "per
sonal liberty bills" of the several northern
states, that thought the right of asylum
nnd pcrsoual liberty was something more
than "technical ?" Hut enough. Take the
case of the kidnappers as they claim it,
their acts were "an overt nnd heinous
beach of the peace," of the rights of per
sons, of International law and the comity
of nations. Men may be insignificant but
principles never. Gordon is a contempt
ible scoundrel, but If the guards thrown
around his personal rights arc broken
down, the same blow strikes down ours.
1HV.W I'lIANi: (' N1JMAY I. AWN,
The constitutional provision that "Con
gress bhall make no law respecting the es
tabllshment of religion, or prohibiting the
frce exercise thereof" Is familiar to all.
The former clause was designed solely to
prevent a union of chmch and state, such
as our fathers had seen established in Gieat
Britain, to whom they hod, theietofore,
owed allegiance. The free exercise of re
ligion, according to the dictates of one's
own conscience, was considered as an In
herent right and was classed with, and Its
enjoyment assured in the banie article, as
liberty of the press and of speech, the
right of petition, etc. In further recogni
tion of this right, it is, also, provided that
no "religious test" shall ever lie required
as a qualification for olllcc. Further than
this no recognition li madn of religion or
religious worship In our organic law. Un
der these clauses or, perhaps, some would
say In spite thereof legislat in es have
passed laws In reference to the observance
of the Sabbath, or Sunday, have prohibited
traveling nnd unnecessary labor on that
day and established penalties for Its non.
observance. Without express legislative
enact ments upon the subject, courts havo
declared It to lie lawand. throughout n
large portion of the United States, It is
good law that all notes, bonds, contracts
etc, made on that day arc void and of no
binding effert. In various other icspects
legislatures, courts, and common councils
have made distinctions between Sun
day and the other day.) of the week. For
Instance t In many cities and In some
states, It is unlawful to sell intoxicating
liquor on that day, while it is authorized
during the leinalndcr of the week. Do.
ministrations, parades and other acts.whlch
would be regarded as perfectly harmless on
a week day, aie absolutely prohibited on
Sunday, and the participants or actors
therein punished by tine or Imprisonment,
to a greater or less extent. So places of
religious meeting, and all religious nssem
blages are placed under the protection of
the law, and the disturlwrs thereof punish
ed, to a greater extent than arc those who
disturb merely secular meetings.
There never has been, heictofore, any
particular occasion for ascertaining the
precise meaning of these constitutional pro
hibillons and guaranties. The peoplo
everywhere havo always been, substantial
ly, of one accord, nnd have united In the
belief that the first day of tho week was
the Sabbath. The progiess of hunilgra
tlon, durlngtho past few years, has brought
to this country a vast number of Jews, who
havo settled In certain localities, and tho
exact limitation or extent of these guaran.
tees nnd prohibitions are accordingly ns.
isuming an Importance they never had be
fore. So long as there was an unanimity
of sentiment upon tho proper day to be oh
served, no practical question could be
raised, for the meaning of the constitution
was and would bo plain, if Sunday was tho
only day to be considered, With the ln
crease of the number of Jews, and their
consequent power, n trouble at once comes
up about "Sunday laws," as we call them.
Tho Jews, as every one knows, regard
Saturday as the Sabbath, and they now
claim the same lights, pilvtllgcs, etc., In the
obscivanre thereof that Christians do for
Sunday. Tho Jewish c-lllrctis ot Chicago
have addiesscd a letter, or petition, to the
Mayor of that city, aklng "protection
"from tin- disturbance of their Sabbath,
"beginning on l-'ildav and ending on Sat
"urdny evening, by prohibiting the catry
"Ing on of trade In tho vicinity of their
"places of worship." Then- Is nioio In
this matter than can be seen at thu first
glance, and Its contemplation will throw
open tin- door for n vast amount of specu
lation. The Jews an- honest and sincere
hi their belief, and have the same rights to
plotecllon, etc., as persons of other beliefs
have. Other beliefs may spring up ob
serving some other day as a Sabbath, and
they, too, will be entitled to protection.
Where, will It end ? We do not propose to
consider the matter further at piescnt, and
throw out these hints only to ask the car
consideration of our citizens to thepos-
slide tendency of this movements. Wo
must concede the same rights and protec
tion to Jew and Christian alike, because
our constitution lenders such a course oh-
llgltary, and also, because It Is consistent
with the pilurlples of a flee government,
and In hnrinouv with the splllt of the age.
Is It not. however, the entering wedge
which Is to hilng about the repeal of all

This pioneer ill the musical woild has
lately leturned from n trip to the Adlron
dacks,where he has been sojourning in coin
puny with Itev. Wit II Murray, of lloston.
He was In town on Wednesday, and was
In excellent health. The doctor was at
l'ittsford a few weeks ago and favored a
laige assembly at the Methodist church
with one of his inimitable "praise meet
lugs," He spoke for somo time on his
favoille tlienie, "Music as an element of
Worship," taking for his points, whet kind
of music should be used, how It should be
used nnd made some remarks on choirs nnd
organs. He believes in the grand music of
the old misters, and says the German
chorals can be sung by our congregations.
He would li:ic all unite In worshipping
God in sacred song, the organ being In
front of the congregation and the choir
should sit with them, for, said the doctor.
"we, do not put a m irtial band In the lear

the above age he edited n musical journal,

To those men In whom we icpose the

when warspiead Its black cloud over our
land and tliieatencd desolation, we turned
to our bravo defenders and bid tlieni God

proved themselves valiant and eminently
worthy of our highest esteem. As the
soldier deserves our homage for deeds ac

In sunshine or storm ; their pot Is always
filled and its strict requirements fulfilled.
They dabble not In politics or rings, or In

ltutland Division, Xo. 81, of Locomo

which was granted to L. T, Durkee and
others, and signed by Charles Wilson,
Grand Chief Engineer, and Kdwaid M.
ltaynor, First Grand Assistant Kngineer.
The Division then had rooms in Men-hunts
In the summer of 1872 the brotherhood
fitted up rooms in the third story of the
I'htcnlx Block in Merchants ltow al nn ex
pense of some .800, which they have used
ever since for their exclusive benefit.
These rooms aie elegantly furnished, well
appointed for the purpose and deserve
more than a passing glance at this tune.
A spacious and tasty room fronting on
Merchants ltow is used for a general icn
devous of the order for a reading room and
social chat. This is furnished very taste
fully and handsomely, a nice carpet on tin
floor, with good furnltuie, In excellent
variety. The walls on cither sideaie hung
with pictures of the brotherhood and
others which arc Inviting to the eye, and
embrace sonic brave men In tho number,
who have died on the post of duty, nnd
others who still live in their respon
sible calling. Among the photo,
graphs that ornament the room Is
one quite conspicuous from Un
rest. This Is the picture ot three ot the
engineers in a group, who have laughed
and grown fat in the business. They arc
Messrs. Augustus Boss, B. McCarty, and
C. Moulton, nnd the combined avoirdupois
of the three is 78.1 pounds. They are n
jolly looking trio, happy and hearty, and
each hasjvon distinction on the locomo
tive. This room is of inestimable vnluo to
the lioys as a handsome place of resort
where they can turn when free from duty
to tell over their experiences together, en
joy the humor that runs throughout tho
race, nnd gather renewed Inspiration from
each others fellowship for the stein reali
ties of their every-day life Leading from
this room are closets for storage of their
regalias and trappings, for wood and coal
and useful articles.
Passing through the larger of these we
arc ushered Into the Hall of the Brother
hood, of which the boys nre justly proud.
This is a room 50 feet by 18, fitted up in a
lavish manner nnd presents a splendid pic
ture to the eye. Here the meetings of the
order are held nnd everything furnished for
all the necessary purposes. The room is
handsomely carpeted and furnished with
easy chairs, tables and appurtenances. At
the head of the room Is an elegant chair of
Eliznbcthian style, presented to the Divi
sion by Major L. G. Kingslcy of ltutland,
with fnarble-toppcd pedestals of handsome
ly carved walnut on each side, a gift from
the samo generous band. Near the center
of the room Is a larger pedestal upon which
rests n magnificent Bible, presented by tho
wives of the Brotherhootl, Tho walls of
the room aie hung with pictures of differ
ent locomotives, handsomely framed, that
set off the beauties of thu room to line ad

to obtain from the books and lecords of
the ticasiiry dcpaitmcnt the Hist full nnd

who have drawn and pocketed their "back

their credit on the books of the disbursing

own pleasure, and of those who have
drawn the money and leturned it lo tin-

here given differs very materially from

It will bo observed that of fifteen Demo,
crats in tho senato ten have pocketed the
back pay, three havo returned It to the
treasury, and two havo not yet drawn It.
Of tlfty-one Itepulilicans. thirty-two havo
pocketed the money, ten have ieturncd It
to the treasury, nnd nine have not yet
drawn It. Of six Liberals, three have
pocketed the money, and three have ic-
turned it to the treasury. The name of
Senator Kellcy of Oregon, Dcmocr.it, does
not appear in the nbovc list at nil. from
the fast that tho law prescribed that the
amount ot mileage paid each senator
should be deducted from his back pay, and
the balance then paid over to him. In
helleys caso his mileage exceeded the
amount of ids back pay, so there was
nothing due mm 011 account of the latter,
Notk. Senator Morrill, although he has
drawn Ids back pay, did not pocket it, but
put It into tho Vermont state treasury.
