To the Editor of the Globe:
After read in sr the two editorials, one In the
Sunday Gi.ouk, the other In the Pioneer
Press of the same day, on the revelations of
the Pall Mail Gazette, it seemed to bm fitting
that an expression of approval and hearty
commendation from all quarters should bo
given the Globe. Where is the trenchant
pen of the Pioneer —cutting enough
when in real earnestwhich can discuss a
subject of such vital importance in a dille
tante, tusthetic and puerile fashion? Evou
in the same way treating 1 of the virgins of
fered up to the unnatural lust of men, not to
a physical death—would It were nothing
worse—but to a moral ruin whose details
are so sickening that we can hardly read them.
Is there no way to make menhonorable
men, kind-hearted men, generous men—
(heaven save the mark!) see that murder is a
crime which pales in comparison? The Pio
neer Press talks of the traffic la rirgins as
showing- "a wide-spread laxity, and entire
absence of moral ■snot." Why is it not
called what it is, the devil's work?
There is lust one way to reach the average
man on this Whole subject, and that is to
make him fool What it would be if his own
innocent child should be drawn into this mael
strom of vice. Would be shake tho hand of
the seducer of his daughter? What a ques
tion; but does he hesitate to offer his hand to
the seducer of some other man's daughter? Not
he. Mr. Editor,l wish I could believe that the
public would, m you say, ostracise ■ journal
which offers the contents of the world's foul
est sewers as a dainty novelty to its readers.
I am afraid it is not so.
To bo sure, we want our wives, sweethearts
and daughters to be pure end good, but then
you know we must be familiar with what
goes OB in the world, even If it sinks us to
perdition. So we buy the paper with all the
news. Is it to be wondered at that the young
people of to-day know of crimes of which a
few years ago grey heads had never heard?
Unless indeed, like the Pioneer Press, they
had studied Herodotus and could bo told
nothing 1 new on these foul subjects. It' it
were not for the "treachery," as you fitly
term it, of the daily paper which presents
Itself as our guide and instructor, ofeu un
fortunately showing only the path to a vile
ness and corruption which would shame a
savage, we would not be made familiar with
those rices which we first abhor, and then, as
we are told, finally embrace.
i - there then no truth and constancy in t
WOrid? Is this the leSSOa We are ioreod
learn by all these disclosures, so terrible, and
yet they claim »o true? The wife starts in af
fright from the arms which have been her
refuse for these many year.-. How does she
know that the heart, whose life-throbs are
more precious than her own, is true to her?
That the life seemingly so honorable, so up
right, is not a mere specious pretense? But
these bo honorable men, for if you should say
to such a one, "Ho lied," do you think he
would bear the accusation one moment? And
yet he is willing: to live a lie, and to cheat and
deceive the truest friend God ever pave him.
Have trust and truth, purity and faith, in
short, confidence in each other in its broadest
sense passed out of our lives? Must we lie
down every Bight with aching 1 hearts and
awake in the morning to a sense of desolation
because doubt, dreadful doubt, has entered
Mr. Editor, who wrote the a tide in the

this crusade, this holy war, which shall with

What is Mm needed preparation for this war
fare? Let ©very man look to his own; see
that he buckles on his armor, that when
temptation assails him, with, however, insidi
ous and plausible a front, he can resist the
onslaught and put the enemy to flight.
It is useless to say that such and such re
sult* cannot be obtained. Public opinion,
the frreatest Bower la Christendom, can make
these crimes u:\ii>t youth, against inno
cence, and against the family, so odious, the
punishment so inevitable, that in our day
uud generation we might rejoice in such a
moral revolution as we now little dream of.
It is not a hopeless case, but every man must
be true, first, In his own life, then in his as
sociations, and in everything that makes for

As a matter of course, we are not in
different to the many kind words of com
uieudation which come to us from sources
that make them all the more valuable. But,
whether our views be popular or unpopular,
it is the purpose of the Ili obb to express
its opinions oil all matters affecting tlu»
I pobUe interests In :v fair, impartial, yet
fearless manner, end at the same time to
admit nothing to its columns tliac would
offend the purest domestic circle, or that

pone. There can be no more potential fac
tor in formulating a healthy moral senti
ment ill a community than the daily news
: paper. And the journal which is false to
its trust and misapplies its force in this par
ticular deserves to be crushed out of exist

what is needed is a public sentiment

MINNESOTA POT LANDS.
Mr. \V. 11. .Staxi>i<ii. an attorney of
Hart let Dak., in behalf of himself and
many others, has made application to the
interior department at Washington that all
the remaining unsold pine hinds in Minne
sota he withdrawn from sale, and that the
government hereafter dispose only of the
pine upon the stuuipase plan. Mr. Stam>
ish submits with tho petition a bill ap
proved by the Dakota legislature, which
embodies the plan he proposes to have the
general government adopt. Secretary La
mai! has referred the petition and accom
panying documents to Land Commissioner
Sr.\i;Ks for action. The commissioner is
now considering the matter. The com
plaint set forth in the petition is that a
wealthy lumber syndicate has obtained
lM>s>session of and controls nearly nil
of the pine land in N Minnesota
that lias been sold. It is fur
ther represented that this syndicate
bat so complete an or£:tnizat;.on in and out
of public life that it would not be possible
to prevent the syndicate from sceiuiii;: what
remains of the timber lands of the slate if
the interior department should decide to
dispose of it. The petitioners say that the
consequence of these operations is that pine
land monopoly demands extortionate prices
for its lumber, and thai it Boats to-day, as
the memorial of the Dakota legislature at
tached to the papers shows, wore than 100
bushels of the best No. 1 hard wheat to
purchase a thousand feet of the best lum
ber, the cost of which is but 91.50 more
than for a thousand feet of the roughest
culled lumber. Accompanying the petition
is a paper which sketches some of the gen
tlemen reported to belong to the pine-land
ring. Of one of them it says that he was
not so very long ago a poor surveyor, but
is now able to live in a house alleged to
have cost $250,000; that anuthed started
with less than 55.000 and \ras recently re
ported to be worth 000,000. Yet the set
tlers In Dakota, with splendid forests adja
cent to their claims, cannot cut a stick of
firewood or a fence-post without being
amenable to the law as criminals. In view
of these tilings, the interior department is
asked to at once withdraw from market all
the unsold pine lands in the state of Minne
sota, and to recommend to congress that a
law be enacted excluding them from sale,
and to lix regulations for the timber on
them to be opened for lumbering substan
tially on the stumpage plan of Canada and
the shite of Maine. Commissioner Sparks
is said never to be so much at home as
when he is checkmating a land riug, and
it is expected that he will take prompt and
vigorous action in the matter.

I :iml Offire Decision.
Washington*, July 13.—Land Commis
sioner Sparks has rendered a decision
affirming the right of entry under the pub
lic land laws, and decisions of the supreme '<
court of the United States of lauds hereto- ;
fore withdrawn by the voluntary action of
the general land otiice for railroad indem
nity purposes, whan no requirements of
law existed for making such withdrawals.
The effect of this decision, if sustained by
the secretary of the interior, will be to re
store to entry under the home
stead and other laws many millions
of acres of public lands which have
been kept out of the market for many years
because claimed by railroad corporations.
In the course of this decision, which is
quite lengthy, the commissioner cites from
leading decisions of the supreme court and
concludes as follows: "Following these
decisions, by the authority of which I am
governed, I must hold that a withdrawal of
land by the commissioner of the general

ments, entry or other appropriations only ;
as Information in deliniug the limits within
which indemnity selections may be made in
a proper time and mauuer, but is not opera
tive as a prohibition of settlements and en
tries within such limits under the public
land laws' prior to the tiiut
when lawful selections by the railroad com
pany has actually been made." This deci
sion was brought out by an inquiry from the
receiver of the land oiliec at Walla Walla, ,

Pacific Kuihvay company is entitled to the i
land regularly settled upon by one Miller,
but which was by a change in the line of

Cleveland Calls v Halt on ReuiovaTs.
Washington, July 13.—The Evening
Star gives prominence to the following:
The president called a halt a little over a
week ago. The order went out to all the
departments that all dismissals and appoint
ments to till places not vacant must stop at
once, A week ago a stop was put to all
the work in the appointment division of the
treasury department, and the appointment
clerk was told that BO more commissions
were to be made out or papers con
sidered until further orders, and a
lot of changes that were contemplated
by him were killed in their conception.
Commissioner of Pensions Black was sent
for personally by the president and was
given to understand that the offensive parti
sanship cry had become too indefinite in its
meaning, and that no more changes in his
official force were to be made until there "
was a thorough understanding on the sub
ject on the part of the president. The re
sult was that the orders tor a number of
changes in the pension office were counter
manded and everything put at a stand
still. The president, it is understood, then
had the understanding with the head of j
the postoflice and other departments, de
claring his policy to be to stand by the civil
sen-ice reform declarations in his letters to
Curtis and in his address on the 4ih of
March. "Removal for cause*' he held to
mean that, and not removal with excuses.
The result is that the axe has been sunk in
the block for the past week and is Mill

merely surmised, but it is believed that the
president is decidedly in earnest and does
not intend that his declaration shall be
