The Jackson Clmiim is doing goo
work in it series of editorials urging
call by the prtHont Legislature for
constitutional convention. In it issue
of the !Mh instant, it makes it very
clear that among the most serious ob
jections to the present constitution
mid ouo -which of itself makes a con
vention ncccsxiry, is that it leaves too
much power in the legislature. Tn
testing Slate laws w hose validity has
been attacked because of want of
owcr in the legislature to enact
them, the rule of construction acqui
esced in by all the court is that all
powers not denied to the Legislature
or committed to some other depart
ment of the government by the consti
tution, belong to tho legislature,
which is ('univalent to saying that the
legislature, unless restrained by the
terms of the constitution, may do any
thing that the people could do. All
power being inherent in the people,
the legislature, as the representative
or agent of the s-ople, has that power,
except hs the people have wen tit to
reserve it in the constitution. A con
htilutional statement that the powers
not conferred by the organic law upon
the three blanches of the government
was excrcisi-d by the peoplo would
prevent such decisions in future and
save the State from many absolute,
usurpations of power.

Snt John Macoonai.d seems to have
spoken rashly in London daring his
recent visit, when ho declared that
Canada would aid Great Britain in
her wars "with the last man and the
last dollar." A large number of Ca
nadian newspapers, the St. Paul Pio
nv Vjw slates, deny that Canada is
willing to indulge in any such exploit
ation. Probably IK) per cent, of Can
ada's population would decline to be
slaughtered in the Soudan, or in Bur

Pittsfikm). Mais . March 8 Every
body is talking about the remarkablo
peisonal ttit'.ement made at bis Sun
day service by the Kev. Edward O.
Hohoke. the vounw pattir of the First
Baptist church. The Rev. Mr. Holy-
oke. who ma handsome toung man
of twenty-eight, and a graautte of
Hamilton College Divinity School
came here about two years ago and
entered upon a succestful niinittry
Trouble began, however, when, in July
last, thj cltriryman brought home
bride, a pretty joung lady whom he
married at Sand Creek, N. Y., on ber
graduation from the Woman s Col
lege there. Mrs. Holyoke is a viva
cious brunette of twenty years, with a
fine education and some definite ideas
of her own. She is not a member
of anv church. although Bhe
bai a strong leaning toward Episco
nacv. which was her father's religion.
She therefore has seldom been seen in
her husDand'e church, preferring to
attend the services of Rector Newton,
formerly of St Paul's, Boston.
She has held aloof from the
Baptist ladies, aad when a delegation
of tbe sisters called on her after ber
marriage, bring a handsome token ol
regard, she sent down word by the
eetvant that she was indisposed. The
atoim cf indignation she then caused
has never quieted sicca. Matters
reached a crisis, however, Wednesday
evening wher. Mrs. Holyoke nttended
a social reception given by tbe
liunimea Men's Association, and
shocked the gossips by indulging
in the wadset and the dances
juat bs if she was not the wiio of a
Bntiit niinbt?r. Next dav tho whole
to.vn was ta'kirg about tUe matter;
some cf tbe Hying gossip nRturally
rtnehed Mr. Holyokb'n ears. Yester
day, at the moriitig service, the cler
ovmitn nubliclv reprimanded bis con
gregation for their gossip about his
wif , and their treatment of her gen
erally. "My w;fifmo to rcu," ?aii.
he, "in a poB tnn involving naia
sptmibility. She is neither the prop
erty of tbe church nor my property
in thct sense, l aving views relig
iously, socially and domestically
which are entirely her own. She is
not tJ be criticised by you. She
is accountable only to her God, and
the church is not her keeper. She is
not a coworker with me, as far as
church affairs go, and you have no
authority to goaeip about her. St.
Paul savs if church members have a
grievance agajnst a biother, they shall
go to him with two or three, and then
if he declines to hear to cite him
before the church. I want yon to
came to me if you have fault to find,
and not talk to third parties. My
wife shall do as she pleases and
she shall not be aieountable to
you in any sense. You would beltsr
let her alone." Tbe minister contin
ued in this strain to some length. His
rebuke has set the church wild with
i xcltement, and while he is suttained
by the best members of his congrega
tion, the gossips are so angry that
many believe he will be forced to re
sign.' Bhrw OrlMtaa Rat.

Wash ington, March 10 President
Bate" f tbe Baltimore and Ohio Tele
graph Company to-day concluded bis
argument b f "e tbe Honee Commit
tee on Poetctficee; aad Poetroads, t n
gaged in tbe investigation cf alleged
telegiaph monopoly. He slated the
avege rate for telegrams charged by
the Western Union Telegraph Com
pany was 25 cents. This was a low
average aa compared with the rate in
England, and waa attributable almost
completely to comoetition east of tbe
Missouri river. Tbe average rate eait
ol the Missouri river waa very much
less than that figure, because of the
fact that west of ths Missouri river
the tariff of tbe Western Union wts
very considerably greater. If the lat d
grant railroads w ere required to ac
cept business from tbe Baltimore and
Ohio Telegraph Company and other
comnanies. he believed that the bene
fit of competition in tbe reductioa of
rates which had accrued to the public
eastcf the Missouri rier would, ai a
matter of couree, accrue aisj to tbe
peple we-t rf that river.
Mr. J. C. Raiff of New York wa?

the wto'e country wett of the Missouri
nver whs at)8tlutIy under t ie control
of the Western Union, as lr as the
pieces of paper called tontrai-ts couiu
put it. He believed that the Northern
Pa ill 3 bad actually undertaken to
build its telegraph line jointly with
tbe Western Union. Tne varicui
railroad camniissioners of the govern
ment, wbo were appointed for the pur
pose of seeing that the laws were exe
cuted respecting these land-grant rail
roads, bad utterly tailed either to ap
prehend or perform their duty. A
late commissioner, wben" applied to
concerning a number of shortcomings
on the part oi several of those rati-
rtads, made answer, "When any mat
ter ia brought before my oflice that
demands my opinion in a formal way,
win endeavor to give it wuu-
out fear, bnt I do not thin it
it is necesrary for me tJ exercise
the functions if my oflice in looking
for trouble." When the railroad com
panies acted in compliance with tne
requirements of the granting acts they
would have given facilities to the new
telegraph companies which sprung up
from time to time, Dut tney were
handicapped hy their contra-.ts with
the Western Union. It wai time not
oaly for plain speech, but for pos'tive
action, vvnen congress utierm'.nm
that the laws shoud be enforced
againtt individuals and corporations,
there would be fwer complaints about
monopebes and fewer s'nkeB through
out tbe country. The n'.terupt of cor-poratiot-s
to pay interest and dividends
on bonds and ttock that Bhould never
have been issued, constitutes a crying
event, bdJ justified much of the coai
plaint of the laboring men. Two
tuird3 of the WetUrn Unioa stock
win clear water -without a spark of
dye in it. Let Congress tay that tele
graph companies should not combine.
Lat it state that no tilegrapli .com
pany should earn more than ten per
cent, on the actual cash valuation of
its exihting capital. Let it. corepel the
Pactic railroads to peiform all of
their duties according to the letter,
and the spirit of the law. After a
fair trial had been madi with such
taw, and no beneficial results fol
lowed. Congress could consider the
propriety of taking control of tae
whole teiegrspu dub ness uy uie es
tabiiRhmenS of a postal telegraph sys
tem. If Congress would enact such
laws as would prevent consonaaaon,
nromote competition west cl the Mis
souri, and prevent the telegraph com-
Eaniee from increasing the rates they
ad themselves established, it would
accomplish vastly more for the public
service than by any postal telegraph
system.

believed that in November Mr. Gould

Union dividends have been re
garded with suspicion fir sevenil
years, but more especially since the
reduction to 6 per cent, in September,
18S4. The evidence of this
suspicion has been in the fact that
while other dividends and stocks
have been selling on a bus's of from 5
to 5J per cent, on the invettment at
the average market plies of Western
Ucion has lem toJ8;jntly at prices
on which the 6 per cent, dividends on
the par value have yielded about 'J per
cenUon the investment. During the last
four months of 1881 it sold at 67J aud
53, and its average price was about til.
In the year 1885 it sold at 531 in Jan
uary, and 81 J fn November, but in
average price was about 61. Since
January 1st it has sold at 75 and tWjc,
and ita average price bai been about
72. These averages show art advanc
ing tendency, bnt this has been tbe
result of the greater general idvanue
in prices of other stocks and the con
tinued low rates cf interest for money
ra'her than anv increase of confidence
in Western Union. It is aoparent
that with money loaning at 12 i
cent, per anaum on call and per
cent, on investment loans, a stock
that would pay , P n.1'
would not be allowed U remain

some deep rooted suspicion that us
dividend would suddenly come to a
stop. It appears that the time hM ar
rived when it comes tj a debate mon
the directors as to wneinur tuey

ries of meetings is in progress In our
city that U exciting great interest
end naving nue result? over nuy
hardened sinners, including several
long-time drunkards, havirg already
fignified their intention to Ka1 a new
lifa. These met tegs nave nere-.oiore
been held in Fa.vation Hall, but
that place beiug toj euuh to accom
rnodati the increasing crowds, the
meeting t j-nigbt was held in the First
Methodisi church, seaticg )00 people.
The church was fi led to overflowing,
and for a time at liait mettmcs will
be held thore nigbtly. The Italer in
these meetings is .bluer n-ims hm.tu,
assisted by various clergymen of our
city, but he ceutjr o! attraction now
is the retormed uruuKara ana gamoier,
EUar M. torrest, wbo is higbly
thrilling the souls of his hearers by
the picture cf his own evil example.
A drunkard and proteesional gambler
for over fifteen years, Mr. Forrest
can draw freely from his own life,
showing how piotitless are the wages
of sin. As Mr. Forrest ia becoming
BCinawhat noted in Western Missouri
and Kansas ai an evangeliAt, drawing
hundreds of men from the gutcer,
who could not be reached except by
bis thrilling example, a shoit sketch
of hie life may be interesting. F.dgar
M. Forrest waa born in Danville, l a.,
October 1, 1849. Uia father, G. A.
Forrest, was for sixteen years post
master at Louisberg, Fa, and
is now in tbe custorr-house at
Philadelphia. One of his biothers
is ti-llnr in the First National Bsnk of
Louisburg, end another is traveling
fr a leading Philadelphia house. In
1870 Edgar M. g-aduated at the Uni
versity of Louisburg and began s'udy
ing law with Wm. 11. Vangtz-rof that
place. In 1871 he was married to a
niece of Judge Biddleof Philadelphia,
but after about one year of married lite
his l.ttbits of gambling aud drinking
g lined such a uia itery over him that be
deseitd his fninily anil came Wett,
Ins wife soon dying ot a brosen heart.
He bus wandered over the Western
ttfct s aud 'territories, Mexico and
Atutraliaas a profsBPicnal gambler
ever eince. He was in Australia in
18S0 snd 1SSI for eighteen months, re
turning from thore with t.7.C0O.
With thi t-opitai tie openeu a iaro
baufc in J?.in l-rancisco, and was
busted in six weeks, in inm,
while in Memphis, Tenn, For
rest became impressed with the
idea of quiitinx his unlawful lile, but
the ties were to strong, and he went
back. About six moatbs ago he was

one night, while dealing, being then'
several hundred dollars ahead of tbe
