It Is not disputed by any one that the
great human tauilly need and mint have
certain periodical seasons of rest from
labor. In all countries and in ull age,
this physical instinct of the people tins
found expression, and found It in many
different ways. The glndlatorhl shows
of the ltoman amphitheater, the Spanish
bull tlirhts.the bear-baiting which was one
of the "butcherly sports" which formed
one of the Chief entertainments of the
English aristocracy no later than n hun
dred years ago.were some of the forms in
which the people formerly Indulged their
desire fur seasons nt rest and recreation.
In the early days of the Christian
era, Sunday, while It was a rellgloua fes
tival, was also distinguished by games,
spectacles ana theatrical exhibitions, nud
there was no civil obligation to abstain
from labor of any kind on that day. In
the second century, the Emperor Con
stautlno. without makin" un direct ref
erence to religious motives, ordered that
on "the day of the sun' no servile work
should bo performed, nud made
himself the benefactor ot man
kind to all future 'generations. In
ao for as Sunday is a season
when the hum of machinery is lulled
when the Implements of labor are laid
aside, when the shop doors are closed
rben the busy eights and sounds of the
ik are put out of sight and out of
arlng, this day tnnst be regarded as
fcntficlal day to humanity. To the rest

THE FKIBE OF PEOItI.4.
The dedication ol the new clumber of
commerce building In Peoria, on Wed
nesday last, was an eventful day in the
history of that city. The building is de
scribed as a haudsome and imposing one
that will compare favorably with any
similar bulldlug In the State. It Is lo
cated on the corner of Washington and
Harrison streets, and is sixty-five by one
hundred aud forty-four fect in dimen
sions. It has a basement, two stories,
and a hall, and is built in the Roman
esque style of architecture, nt a cost of
$77,000. The first and second doors are
set aside for ofllces, and very tastily fin
ifhed, while the hall is giveu up exclu
sively to the purposes ot the board of
trade. The hall is thirty-four by one
hundred and three feet In dimen
sions, u.ry , weU-Uithtud nnd Ut.. it
Is reached by a wide stairway in the rear
of the building, and directly over (lie en
trance Is a gallery, for those
who may desire to watch the move
ments of the board during business
hours. The walls are barrea of any alle
gorical representations, and are kalso
mined la a pure white that gives a cheer
fal Impression. Ou each side of the pas
sage to the hall are the rooms ol the offi
cers of the board, aud uo pains has heen
spared to make them In every way ele
gant hi finish. The exterior Is unique In
design and execution. Urick Is the prlu
clpal material used, finely trimmed with
cut-stone of elaborate design. The sur-
rouudiugs are favorable to the Hue up
pearaucu of the new edifice and It stands
out grand and Imposing. It would he
credit In any metropolitan city.
The dedicatory ceremonies comprised
a procession which consisted of musical,
military nud civic representations of the
city ; addrests In thtj new bulldlug by
the president aud members of the Peoria
board ol commerce; congratulatory
speeches by Gov. Ilsveridge, Col. 11. G.
Ingersoll, and gentlemen from New York,
Philadelphia, Chicago, aud other places
of not , banquet at House's opera
house and a grand reception aud ball in
the evening in the hall of tho hulld
lug. The celebration, as u whole, was
entirely successful nud much enthusiasm
aud good feeling prevailed among the
citizens and guests. The city of Peoria
Is as haudsome as it is enterprising, and
we congratulate It oil Its new ehainber of
THE TAXATION OF CHURCH FEOH
KUTY. Ko proposition contained in President
Grant's late Message has created more
dUcustlon or attracted more general at
tention from the masses of the people,
thai his suggestion relative to
the equal taxation of church
with all other property. As a
bare proposition this lars upon Its fac
the appearance of equal Justice to
all, but the Influence which the
adoption of President Grant's Ideas
would have on the general pub
lic welfare ! the country, In whatever
light It may be viewed, would be so vast,
that the suggestion may well arrest the
attention oftliH people and cnlUt thulr
most serious and Impartial considera
tion. Whatever the "liberal" spirit of
the Sc may be, and Into whatever light
It is destined to lead the human family,
there l no doubt but that the church
has been one of the centers of modern
civilization; that In It are taught lessons
of worallty and purity to high and low
alike, and that to It we are Indebted for
the great humanizing principle that all
men are brothers. Of all the
seurccs of enlightenment, of ed
ucation, of morality, of everything
that tend to make men better of
all these, the church alone, In a
peculiar sense, Is free to all.
It Is a public benefactor. We do not tax
the public library, the public park, or
garden; like these, the ml-ulou of the
church Is to elevate, to educate, to cheer
and to solace humanity; its doors are
gateways through which the people may
pas into a pure, a peaceful, n quieting, a
restful atmosphere; any lulluencethatba
a tendency, as It has, at certain recurring
periods of time, to lift the people up and
out of the abserbing pursuits of the week,
Is, even If there were no higher considera
tions, of incalculable bouetlt to their
To place n tax upon church property
is to takt! n telling step toward (he obol-
Uhmcut.of the i'lmi.tuw, u which
Gen. Grant, most piobably, has no do In
"1 haye uo lump guide te my loot"
said one of the wisest and purest of Die
patriots of 1770, "but the lamp of expe
rience." Upon this question of church
taxation, the people of this country
liould be guided by the fate of other
nations in a like experience.
When Turgot, comptroller-gen
eral of finance lu France
under l.onW XVI, able, conscientious
and honest, but entertaining the dels-
uo i views which imerwaru ibpreau so
rapidly in that country, advocated
the Indiscriminate taxution of all
property, he opened a path for the
leaders of the French revolution to walk-
In. It Is not upcestary to paint a picture
of that unhappy period In the history of
r ranee. "Uobbery was uupauished
spoliation decreed, divorce encouraged
prostitution pensioned, irrcllglon lauded
falsehood ro warded, tears Interdicted.'
With social disorder cauio the downfall
of the church, and tho Inauguration of
the "worship of reason" was followed as
a natural sequence by the abolishment of
Sunday, nud the fixing of every tenth
day as a season of rest for the people
rue (lire eiitcts 01 tticse wild measures
and their condemnation by the Freud
people at n later period, are known to nil
readers of history.
Gen. Grant, it Is believed, Is not moved by
any hostility to the church when he tig
gests the taxation of its property
but that his policy would have the eflect
to break down the church and in it, on
of the best lafeguards of the social
moral, and political well-being of the
country, there can he no doubt.

OUR TEXAS LETTER.

' licnnlr 13, l7Ar
Since writing last wo have been pro
greislng olowly, picking up calllo nnd
grazing them toward the point for which
we started. Our party consists ot u
mixed mob of Mexicans, and Texas cow
boys, iiuiubeilug twenty In all. V.ncU of
the herders 1ms three horccs which ho
rides alternately, and which arc taken
cant of by three men who do nothing
else. Then we have two cooks, an ambii.
lance and two pack mules, which carry
the cooking utensils and supplies, Our
bill ot fare consists of potatoes, rice,
beam, ami such other vegetables as will
bear transportation, with hard crackers,
strong coflVe, and beef which wc know
is fresh, since we sec It shot down and
dressed for the meal as occasion require,
with an occasions! deer, some of which
we have seen contentedly grazing
amongst the cattle we pass. The amount
of provender this party stows away each
meal would strike terror to the heart of
uny boarding houe keeper. Tho horse
back cxerelso together with the pure air
gives a man the appetite of u wolf, nud
he will eat things here, without hesita
tion, that he would .-lankier nt any
where else. Two months of this
tort of life would cure the wort possible
ease of dyspepsia. The manner of proceed
follows : After purchasing from the
aucher or his agent, who furnishes u
list ol the hratnU, nnd accompanies us
with whatever force he hai at his com
mand, we ride out on the prairie, "w here
attic are lobe seen grazing In "bunches"
(that Is what they call It here unless
there arc herders with them), of ten to
forty. We scatter and drive toward an
agreed point, all the cattle lu sight. When
all have reached the place deslg
nated, we will have probably a thousand
head, and while we slowly circle round
them to prevent their stampeding, a cow
bov will proceed to "cut out a desired
brand, which Is very exciting nnd dan
gcrous; he will spot a steer bearing the
proper brand and then putting spur to
his Mustang, which Is thoroughly trained
for tho work, ho will drive the steer cleu
through and out of the herd otl by ltcll
where It will be kept until half :i dozen
other join It, when it will be contented
After the excitement of tin- herd has
somewhat subsided, he will repeat the op
eration until the number i-old Is cut out
the brands are thou inspected, the
proper bill of sale given, and wc movi
on to "other fields and patturcs
new." The cattle are then allowed to
scatter, which they do aud always retur
to the places from which tuey were
driven, even if It Is live or ten miles. Old
herders tell me that these cattle have eer
tain "haunts" where the same cattle will
be found grazing from one year's end to
to another, unless the pastures fall or they
arc driven awav. Knowing this they can
always tell where they will find cattle
the brand they want, lu some of ou
I "round hps" we had had as high us a
hundred ill Herein hrumls, some of them
belonging to men wtio did not live within
fifty miles ot us and who probably had
never seen the cattle since they were
branded, yet to attempt to drlvo away
any or these wouiu havo met with us
prompt punishment as though the owner
had been present. They are very clan
Mlsli, these stock-uieu, but arc obliged to
be by circumstances. The riding of sonic
ot these men Is simply marvelous. I got
one of our Mexicans todlspluy his ability
in this direction yesterday; for half a
dollar he performed feats of horseman
ship I have never seen equaled. 1 will
never doubt anything again which they
claim they can do ou horseback. He
got after a vicious six year
old steer, which he would
start at lull speed and then lasolt
within six Inches of any spot I would
tlutlunutn on cither horn or leg, and rid
ing on nt n langunt, lie would throw It
on either side, seemingly without an
effort. Next, hs they cantered over the
prairie, he grasped it by the tail and
before that steer knew It, he had turned
a half somersault and was lying ou his
back. He narrowly escaped belnggorud
twice when the maddened animal turned
on him, but that only seemed to ndd to
Ids pleasure. After this exhibition whs
over, he removed the .saddle from bis
mustang and gave mo a specimen of Co
matichc riding. He would ride at full
gallop, laying along the pony's side, sup
ported only by ene arm around the
pony's neck, and one leg thrown across
its haunch. In his other hand he carried
arevolver, with which ho tired at ntnark
under the neck of the pony, without hit
ting it, however. He also would pick up
lroiu the ground anything thrown down,
wlille going at lull speed. This ended
the exhibition, and Slguor Martinez re
tired uuildst the vociferous cries of
"bravo" from his delighted companions.
The life of a herder is one of excitement,
nut unmixed with peril, and it furuUhes
employment to a class ot men, tome of
whom would undoubtedly do some State
good .-ervlec la tho penitentiary If they
had not this vent lor theirsurplus eussed

tvelvo to eighteen dollars a mouth, ami
