, SYSTEM OF PARISHES
To the Editor of THE TIME8:
This answer about tho Catholic
churches being so crowded that wo do
not have to soek a larger membership
is very foolish. Does he not know that
ithere aro certain boundaries or parishes
y in' every, city and all Catholics within
tho limits of that parish attend the
church -therein, and when tho church
can not longer hold tho congregation
there is another church built, and so
another parish created? So you seo It
does not make any difference how many
.members thero are wo aro always pro
vided for. As to his own Question, was
no in earnest? If Bo he, need only at
tend the church to .learn that every
thing in the church is publio except
jib i cumession; mat is witn our self ana
una ana none or tils business.

LAW AND ORDER.
THE WHIPPING POST
To the Editor of THE TIMES:
Permit me to make a suggestion In
favor of the whipping post. I think It
1b a- very good thing. Some men get
married and think their wives have to
be their slaves. God made the women
in his likeness as well as the men. Ho
said, all men, meaning women as well,
I would like to snake hands with the
judge that proposed the whipping post.
If there were more men in the world
like him, I think It would be a hotter
There are a good many cowards 1
the world and any man who advocates
the use of an oak shingle or any other
article .to beat a woman, the mother
of the 'race. Is more than a coward.
As long as G. S. P. does not advocate
the whipping post It gives me the 1m
' presslon that he is a wife beater him
self and thut ho Is afraid that he v.
be tho first one to get an ln"r
to tho whipping post. W. E. M. D.
, IN RACIAL MATTERS
To th Editor of THE TIMES:
'In answer to an article In the paper
November 23. signed "Southerner," re
garding the negroes being sent to Borne
Island in the Pacific because of crime
and other evils committed by them, I
would say If tho beam were pulled out
ot this gentleman's eye so that he could
see all races of people, his own as well,
instead of one race only, he wpuld not
have ma.e his ungodly statement. I
say ungodly, because God wants Intel
ligent men like him who can see things
to go among heathen poople to civilize
M ' teach them godliness, Instead of
costing them upon a lonely Island In the
sea. I am making no excuse for the
negro's crime, but I further say if the
crimes of both races, the seen and un
seent were displayed upon a large can
vas and hung in the heavens before tfte
natural eye with the Judgment of the
Almighty God. I am ufrald the whole
Pacific ocean would have to bo trans
formed Into an Island where both races
would meet together with one mind and
one heart and shake glad hands and
"sing "Aro we yet alive to see each
other's face," tor nono ls perfect.
LIKE MOVING COGS
To the Editor of THE TIMES:
A newly appointed brakeman had Just
entered on his duties in connection
with a steam railroad running through
a rural district. A rather steep hill was
crossed each day by the train, and If
the steam pressure In the holler was
lower than usual, the engineer found
It difficult to bring the train over the
hill. One day' tho train moved with
greater difficulty than usual; a glance
at the steam-gauge showed sufficient
steam in the boiler, and the engineer
was at a loss to account for the slow
and difficult movement of his train. At
last the top of the hill was reached,
and thrusting his head out ot the win
dow, he called to the brakeman, "Well,
lad. we had a hard time crossing over
today." "Indeed wo did, Blr; and had
It not been that I put on the brakes,
we should havo gone back for sure,''
was the reply which came to the ears
of the astonished engineer.
Mr. Coburn'B "proof" for conscious
ness In death ls as much to the point
as was the act of the brakoman. Ho
rertalnlv has followed a wlll-o'-the-wiap,
and is floundering in the bog of absurd
ity and nonsense. I only wish he would
present something' to the point; but
how can he, when there is not a text
of Scripture which teaches the con-
sclous state of tho dead? "Tho dead
know not anything;" they havo "no
knowledge of nnythln.fr done under the
sunj" lruthe day of death "their very
thoughts perish,1' are statements of
Holy Writ, plain, positive, conclusive.
They can bo- multiplied many times
over. Qlbtcr says: "I'hychlcal matters
may be compared to a set of ppwerful
cogwheels In motion; onco the fingers
are caught in the teeth, the whole body
is drawn in." Tho illustration Is nn
apt one, and Mr. Coburn's last letter
gives evidence that he is in the grip ot
spirit delusions'. God has nothing what
ever to do with the spirit manifesta
tions which Mr. Coburn Indorses Mhoy
havo their source In an altogether dif
ferent being. JOHN Q. QUINN.
WORKS AND WORSHIPS ' 4
BOTH ON SUNDAY
To the Editor of THE TIMES: ,
In Saturday evening's issue I noticed
an article of explanation as to why
pews remain empty. ' I would like to
ask the writer it she is a resident of
"Ye City of Pharisees and Hypocrites,"
and, If she means the. genoral public
to come under these' classes? As re
gards the men who have to work on
Sundays, I wonder how .many of these
street cleaners would go to church if
they had a' chance.. Of courso it is

the work of street cleaning be left over

city fathers would not have tho heart
to boast "the cleanest city in the Union."

by Individuals, whose personal opinions
no doubt aro that they are Intelligent
and broad-minded, to the effect that
smoking Is depraving, disparaging, and
Intolerable. As to smoking being do

THE EVOLVED CAUCASIAN
" AND HIS SOCIAL SYSTEM
To tho Editor of THE, TIMES:
There were great differences between
the powers of the wealthy slaveholder
of the South and those of his slaveless
neighbor. Consequently there was little
sympathy between them. But even
among the slaveless there were possible
future holders. For Caucasians any
where might come In and own slaves.
In a few rare Instances free negroes
were themselves the owners of other
The fluctuations In wealth, as is ever
the case in our barbarous social system,
followed the generations of the slave
holders. Then came the fearful losses
of our civil war. The Immediate precipi
tation of that war was an attempt by
the slaveholders to prevent rci'o
by secession. But the result was both
revolution and confiscation. That war
swept away the so-called right to slave
property. The losses In that war were
a heavy penalty for the Caucasian race
to pay. And It had to pay It because
of the salveholders' plutocracy. But tho
Caucasian race was the race that bene
fited by the abolition of negro slavery.
That race in the South has made a
greater ratio of progress without sla
verv than it had ever made with it.
And the benefit waB due to the success
of the side whose incentive originated
in envy. H. H. SWEARINGEN.

To the Editor of THE TIMES:
While your timely editorial regarding
the desire for the sensational details of
the unfortunate Beattle cose was full
of truth, yet it is evident to the remem
bering mind that your news department
promised the publio that the progress of
tho case ns it opened would beMhor
oughly made known.
As you well know, the Saviour of man
said that mankind should not live by
bread alone that ls simply the mechan
ical animal. The soul must be fed
aleb. And while on the one hand such
deplorable events are shown up on the
woJld's stage. Just as were tho Biblical
characters, yet do you not think that
It would bo most noblo for your news
gathering department to have been and
to bo more in harmony with tho editor

only point out tho moral of the warn

COLUMBUS DAY OR
To the Editor of THE TIME3;
Congress will soon convene and tho
Columbuses will onco more ask Con
gress for a "Columbus Day" or "Dis
covery Day" national holiday, and take
whichever they can got easiest. That
Is, a national holiday for Roman Cath
olic church day purposes for hierarchi
cal aggrandizement. I protest against
such national legislation. It would bo
hcnlous to our free Institutions.
Upon getting their Columbus Day na
tional holiday, tho Roman Catholic hi
erarchy would canonize Columbus,
make him a saint and turn their Colum
bus Day into a Saint Cnlnmlnm nv
Then, for tho first timo in United States
J?de8 appeals and such other things,
Such Congress clven Columbus Dnv na
tional holiday to the Roman Catholic
hierarchy, at demand of the Colum
buses, or any body, for such purposes,
would be discriminatory legislation and
All true Americans should protest
against It. "Eternal vigilance is the
?rice of liberty," thundered Patrick
lenry. Who does not llvo up to it, In
word and act. Is a coward and knows
not the meaning ot freedom and Its be
neficence. ANDREW JORDAN GREEN.
MARYLAND NEVER WAS A
ROMAN CATHOLIC COLONY
To the Editor of THE TIMES: ,
"M. D. F." says "Maryland, founded
by Catholic Lord Baltimore, was tho
first English colony to allow religious
Mr. James I. Turner answers: "Mary
land granted religious liberty to Christ
ians only, wherois two years before, hi
1647. Rhode Island granted liberty of
conscience to all persons whether
Christians or otherwise."
Mr. Turner cities trje history. Tho
much vaunted toleration act of Mar.fr
land, 1619, was Itself Intolerant. It or
dained "first that any person who de
nied the divinity of Christ
should be punished with death and all
his goods confiscated" Thus,
the Jew was denied religious freedom,
nor was the ban lifted from him in
Maryland for nearly a half century
later. Aeoln. anv ono then denying the
divinity of Christ, as all Unitarians do
now, would have suffered death as their
Arlan prototypes at the hands of the
Popes In the early centuries.
Maryland never was & Roman Catholic
colony, neither In character nor In
numbers, and none but bigots nnd the
Ignorant will try to controvert It,
Mr. Turner says that religious-liberty
belongs to no particular creed or part
of our country. It is true.
All concede that representative gov
ernment bv majority rule la the funda
mental principle of flee government.
Government bv representation began at
Jamestown, 'n 1619. Here wee the be
ginning of civil llbertv in which was

It Is that a tree ls to bo Judged by Its
