Mr. A. K. Kenron, one of tbe passengers

Tolto.vro, Oct. S3. -A case of con
siderable interest to members of tbe Canada
Methodist churches has Just come before
tbe courts here. Rev. J. II. Boyd, of the
Methodist denomination, applied tor an
order s i v i 1 1 is lilru tbe custody ot bis two
children, twelve and nine years old. The
ch I, in n are at present in the charge of their
inotLcr, who is not living withthe father. Tbe
pleaulng show a lamentable statu of affairs
lu the minister's family. Mr, Boyd asserts
hat be is able and willing to support his
children, and wishes to place lilin at col
lege. The mother resist the father's claim
and in an affidavit, alleges that bis temper
is sttaiiic almost to savagery, und that she
has led a wretched life with h i in. She
saeris that he bas no means of support-in-
them, and Is besides, a uiau
of eccentric disposition and violent temper,
in that she cau't live with blm safely, and
she thinks tho children would not be safe
with bun. Charges of cruelly are also
made, aud tbe eccentricities and peculi
arities of habit of the father are specifically
set forth. It 1 alleged that on one oo
casion Boyd compelled tbe family to lit
down and dine oil beef filled with maggoU,
At another time be Insisted upon taking
one of the cbildreti for a long walk upon a
coid day wben she waa suffering from
measles, therby injuring bor health. The
reverend gentleman also possessed peculiar
Ideas upon tbe subject of family wash
lug. During prayers he would frequently
crawl across tbe room upon bis knees,
and while keeping up his prayer, adminis
tered blows lo tbe children for supposed Id
attention. Boyd appears to have lod

book agent and Itinerant minister In Ohio
and Arkansas. Ho produced testimonial!

CONSTITLTION AND AR I fCI.KS
"We, the undersigned, who are resident!
and cltUetis of the city of St. Louis and
Stale of Missouri, do declare (bat in our
opiulon certain great political evils exist
that endanger tbe lecurity of our homes,
tbe prosperity of tbe State and tbe geueral
welfare; that among these evils are chiefly
to be noted a habit of public servants upon
assuming office, to pervert the power of
their position to their individual ambition
or private gains; a subserviency of both
those w ho are seeking nomination and those
who have gained office to political rings and
corrupt citizens: the appointment by those
In office of their relations lo places,
and the general multiplica
tion of publio offices unneces
sary for public business, and made to serve
personal or political followers; a too easy
familiarity of tbso holding public trust
with known gamblers, knaves and political
demagogues; the arrogant assumption of
Influence and political power by a few vi

to tbe necessity of discharging promptly

sacrifice either money, time or personal
ease to efforts to redeem themselves from
evils they confess to be both dangerous and
disgraceful; a weakening of tbe executive
and police power, and tbe increased rest
lesstiesi of tbe criminal classes against tbe
law; a want ot confidence In the executive
power by the people, and a wanton perver

ot office; ur.d, linpeUel by these and oilier
