FrIAY. . u . ,. .MARGrt 19,' 1886,
The latest dispatches from Washington
report that the Senate Judiciary
Committee has voted to report adversely
upon the nomination of Mr.
Zachuriah Montgomery, a prominent
democratic lawyer of California, for
the office of Assistant District Attorney-General
for the Interior Department
This determination of the Committee
contains a political lesson that should
not be 'Overlooked by those who would
Uphold and peipetuate Republican institutions.
The grounds upon which
the Committee bases their objections
to Mr. Montgomery's fitness for the
position do not reflect upon his abilities
as a lawyer, but are found in the principles
held by the nominee in reference
to the public-school system of the
United States, Several years ago Mr,
fontgomery printed a pamphlet in
California, in which he attacked the
public school system generally from
a sectarian standpoint that favored the
Roman Catholic Church. As a guarantee
of civil liberty the framers of the
Constitution of the United States de
clared, among other things, that no re
ligious test should ever be required as
a qualification for holding any public
trust, and that no law should be made
" respecting an establishment of relig
ion,, or prohibiting the free exercise
thereof." Sectarianism, since the year
1789, or shortly after the framing of the
Constitution, has been constantly ob
iectinc to this part of the funda
mental law, whenever it has been
found . - to stand in the way of
theological theories of Government,
which are widely at variance with the
modern idea of civil liberty. With the
grpwth of theRepublic tlese sectarian
partisans have endeavored, at different
times, to force their views or Government
upon the American people with
much of the old spirit of the sectaries
of effete Europe. Since the year 1830,
these people, who represent but a
small minority of denominationalism in
the United States, and are infinitesimal
when compared with the American
people, have been conitantly agitating
the dangerous question of constitu
tional amendment, so that their relig
ious views shall be embodied in the
fundamental law. In fact this small
minority, who are not satisfied with the
modern-safeguard of civil liberty, which
insists on the separation of church and
state, have organized what they are
pleased to call a "National Association,"
whose aim and hope is to foist a religious
amendment into the constitution.
The result is that the people of the
UnitecLStates, naturally jealous of.their
civil liberty, are on their guard at every
point, through their representatives in
Congress; and the unfavorable report
against, the confirmation of Mr. Montgomery,
for even a second place in an
office of public trust holding as he
does sectarian views which conflict
with the spirit of civil liberty is another
instance of repeated rebuke to
those who are conitantly threatening
the very foundation upon which is
builded the modern exemplification of
Fatal Railroad Accident.
Toronto, February 27. A serious
accident occurred on the Northern
Railway at Thornhill last night. Besides
a news agent, who was killed,
twenty persons were more or less injured.
The night was intensely cold,
and many of the wounded were frostbitten.
A farmer's team took fright at
the approaching train and ran right
into it, one horse, jumping in between
the tender and the baggage car. The
result was that the baggage and mail
cars and passenger coach left the track
and rolled down a forty-foot embankment.
The baggage and mail cars took
fire and were destroyed, but most of the
mail was saved. Flames broke out in the
passenger coach, but were extinguished.
The loss is not yet known.

New York, February 28.- G. W.
irom juDnaottjOi rcoruary 27m says:
The Irish question continues to crop
uh in .Parliament more frcouentlv.be"
c'atiseiGladstone haspostponcd the ah
nouccment of his policy until April,
The repeated efforts in both houses to
draw out the various Ministers produce
little result. Lord Spencer has explain
ed away Moneys declarelion against
usingthe military to enforce civil rights.
Mbrley'has further explained himself,
but the belief has cone abroad and to
Ireland that landlords will not be al
lowed to evict paying tenants. Davitt's
vigorous protest against the outrages
which degrade Ireland before the world
is reported in full in the English papers,
whicri consider that t leaves nothing to
be desired at present, but they regret
that Parnell had not taken the same
line earlier. Lord Randolph's Ulster
campaign accomplished his object by
drawjng English attention to the fact
that there are two Irelands, of which
one is utterly opposed to home rule.
The Parnellites accuse him in Parliament
and elsewhere of Inciting to civil
war. He certainly told the Ulster
men of the necessity of self-defense
against political and religious persecution,
if home rule, as he granted, was
an ulterior possibility. Sextan's proposal
to censure him in the House of
Commons is a tactical blunder. Lord
Randolph Churchill would like nothing
better than a debate on such an issue.
THE RECENT RIOTS.
The report of Childcr's committee,
published on Wednesday, gave a frcsli
start to the talk about riots. The re
port supplies official sanction to the
condemnation already pronounced by
the public on the police authorities,
and embodies a lucid and complete
narrative of the events of the day of
the riots. Colonel Henderson s resig
nation necessarily followed, the censure
on him being absolutely without quail
fication, Daily allusions to the sub
ject in the House during the week were
followed by a general debate yesterday.
A weak attack on unilaers elicited a
weak defense. The Tories, who honed
to damage the Ministry, seemed quite
aware of the real points against the
Home Secretary. A new Chief of
Police will be appointed next week, and
a new commission will reorganize the
force. A bill is promised to pay losses
from the riots.
THREE IMPORTANT MEASURES,
Three other important matters have
been touched in the House. Gladstone
announces that the Government
will refer the whole question of procedure
to a committee of thirty. It js
understood that Lord Hartington will
be Chairman, with hardly an Irishman
among his colleagues. I he Spectator
bluntly says that if the Irish are to go
home, few other reforms will be needed.
The debate on Wednesday on the Irish
bill, compelling landlords to compensate
house tenants for improvements,
showed a startling development of the
tendency of the present House to invoke
State interference in serial and
economical questions. Morley vainly
objected, remarking that though political
economy might be out of date,
common sense was not. I he Irish
member turned on him sharply, seeing
which, Gladstone calmly threw over his
lieutenant and though not assenting to
the piinciple of the bill, promised a
committee of inquiry, including England,
Scotland and Ireland. Lastly,
Trevelyan introduced a new bill to
remedy the grievances of the crofters.
The measure is considerably stronger
than last year, and is intended to secure
fair rents and a fixity of tenure,
with power to obtain compulsory leases.
Trevelyan justified this as wholly exceptional,
making so strung a protest
against applying the sanie doctrine
elsewhere as to give rise to the rumor
that he meant to resign before the
Irish land bill could be introduced.
The rumor is premature, nevertheless.
THE QUEEN HISSED.
Attention has been drawn to the fact
that the Queen was hibsed at a dinner
of the labor representatives in Parliament
on Wednesday. The Attorney
General, when questioned in the
House last night, reduced the incident
to slight propositions. Neither he nor
the Chairman heard the hissing.
PRAISE OF GREELY's WORK.
Lieutenant Greely's "Three Years of
Arctie Service," published in London
this week, is reviewed by the leading
journals, which vie with each other in
eulogy of his achievements and the in
terest of the nauative. No such ex
citing record and just description of
Arctic adventure has ever been given
to the world, say the critics. The 2Ymes
extols the beauty of the printing and
engraving, possibly unaware that both

Tlirs Storm at tlio East,
New York, February 27. The cold
storm continues. The thermometer
has fallen to 7 degrees below zero, and
the wind is still blowing a gale at from
Si to 56 miles an hour. But one sail-
irjc vessel has arrived here since the
night before last, and that required the
assistance of two tugs. No steamers
have arrived, although a number are
reported off the coast unable to make
New York harbor against the terrific
gale which is blowing. Telegraphic
connection with the surrounding coun
try is in an even worse condition
than yesterday. A number of houses
have been unroofed in this city and
Brooklyn. No serious accidents are re
ported, but chimneys, awnings, signs
and trees continue to be blown down.
Boston, February 27. The cale has
prevailed with great fierceness through
out New Jingland and along the
Canadian coast. Many vessels dragged
their anchors in the harbor last night,
and others at the wharves were badly
listed by the wind and the accumu
lation of ice. Local 'longshoremen
unite in affirming this gale to be the
worst in their experience. This morning
Cornelius Coughlan, a brakeman on
the Boston and Lowell Railway, was
blown from the top of a car into the
Charles river and drowned. At Law
rence, Mass., Edward Luscomb died
this morning, from injuries received by
being blown from a milk wagon.
That was a cautious old tramp who,
upon being asked whether he would
have a drink of whiskey as he was be-
gining a job of sawing wood or would
have it when he had finished it,
answered : "Well, mum, I think I'll
take it now. There has been a pile of
sudden deaths lately.
