WaWere vs. Lawyers.
It la true in every instance that when
comtunities or countries are experi- a
enoing a general- depression in busi
ness they seek for some real or
imaginary cause from which to trace
the depression. We find in our own
State at present an example of tbis
truth., Our State, and in fact it Is true
of all sections of our country, is ex
pbrioncing, and has experienced for
several years, a general depression in
every business in which our citizetse
are engaged. Front this condition of
affairs a certain class of our citizens
have traced the cause, and have organ
Ized Into what is called the farmers'
movement to relieve themselves of the
evil. In this istance.they seek to lay
at the door of the lawyers the cause
of the general business depression of
our State, and in an open letter one of
our most prominent citizens has gone
so fhr as to charge that our Stae Is
ruled by an "oligarchy of lawyers."
This Is the pith of the complaint, says
the author'of the article referred to,
and Is too plain to be denied. Do the
aicts warrant the assertion? We take
It to be a fact that since the Democratic
party caie Into power in the State, a
maiority of the members of the Legis
lature hav6 ben farmers, and that in
the Senate they have had li most cases
an actual majority, and in every in
stance a majority over any other pro
f9en. If this be true they must have
controlled the proceedings of the Gen
oral Assembly, and possessed the
power to pass or defeat any measure
brought before that body. Once this
is true, the only conclusion which can
be drawn is that they are responsible
for the laws which hate been passed
sluice 1876, and are accountable to the
people of the State for the administra
tion of the government. 7f this con
dition of affairs has existed we atro un
willing to admit that a minority of the
General Assembly could control the
government, and as a consequence It
could not have been controlled by the
lawyers. But, further, Captain M
bla-dm its that no charge of or
ruptioni or ia Tamreerarh.ri' uaft- De
made, and as lie cites no instance of
laws which have been passed by the
Legislature, detrimetal or in any a
way prejudicial to the rights of the
farmers and in the interest of the law
yers, we take it for granted that no
such have been passed. Where, then,
Is the just ground for thae compialumt
that the State is ruled by an oligarchy
of lawyers, or that, our gove spent ie
-not administered In a propc-'ay? We
facts Vtarrant the assertion. (
But, Captain McMeekin charges
further that the Senate is composed
almqst entirely of lawyers, the Speak
er of the House is a lawyer, and the
chairman of a majority of the commit
teas are lawyers. Upon the fiest as
sortont we bog to differ, but for the
sake of argumnat we wvili admit that it
is true. Did not. the House, a majori
ty of which were farmers, hold a I
veto power, aand could thtus de-i
feat any obnoxious legislatiou proposed
by the Senate? As to. the Speaker of a
the House, what great power is vested a
in him that makes him a dictator in I
that body? Hie Is generally selected
from the legal profession sihnply from
the fact, that the probabilities are that
lie would have a better knowledge of
parliamentary law tihan one from the
The third assertion that tihe chair
mean of a majority of the Legislative
oommittees sinuce 1876 have been law
yer's, we challenugo him to prove. Bunti
he continues, anud lads fault with the
present judicial system of the State, ont
account of the power which it hats of I
construing the laws passed by the
General Assembly. He would rob the
Courts of this power and thus defeat,
to a great extent, the object for which c
they were eated under the Constitu. g
tion. lHe would introduce a reform I
whieh would give t~o the Legislature
the power to construe its own Acts. a
A single illustration will show that ci
the supposed reform would result in 7
an ignominious failure. Suppose tho
Sgiature of 1885 had passed an Act
-, Makiwg it a crime to, do or ntot do a d
a#Ntticular tbing. When the Act be- tl
.omes a law it is found that it admits s'
et two entirely different constructions.
(and this is firequetntly the case), and i
under this criminal statute some paarty s<
Is arrested and tried before the Court fi
of Sessions. One conttruction of the
.stattite wouhl make him guilty of a e
crime, but-the other would not. The hi
ctrettit judge does not know exactly E
what the Legislature Intended, but the
accused Is found guilty, and his coun
-el appeals to the Supreme Court. Blut
when he get. there, to his sorrow, he
Is Informed by their IHonors that they 1
- have made a lifelong sitidy of the law

tate Is ruled by an oligarchy of law
ers-and this is the pith of the com
laint. From our construction, the
isue has been made and we admire

In conclusion we can only pay that C
)aptain MeMeekin's letter proves the
ruth of the proposition which we

BLIND CIHAPLAIN MILBURN.
Some of the Characteristics of the Parson
Whose Publio Prayers Please the Pe.
(P"rom the WasMngton Post.) l
The Rev. Dr. Milburn the blind
Chaptain of the House of Representa
tives whose prayers are just now
creating a sensation, Is a remarkable
man in more than one respect. Forty
three years ago he was told by oi.
nent, doctors teat he would be dead
within six months, and since that time
he has traveled, by actual comn putation,
a million and a half miles in his voca
tion. ie is now physically, although
in his sixty-fourth year, as strong and
robust as inost men of thirty, and his
intellect is of more than common
power. Ile can give more accurate
descri[ptioins of Westminster Abbey,
Cologne Cathedral, Notre Dame and
the other Old Word monuments than
can the majority of those persons who
have not been dopendent on other
people's eyes and on their sense of
touch. lie can describe the rocky
outlines and mountalinons declivities of
the SIerras and of the Rocky Mountains
and of the picturesque beauties of the
Blue Ridge with a force and vigor
combined with acecuracy rarely equal
ed, even by writers who still retain
their sight, while he has been blind
since lie was five years old.' At Is his
wonderful power of thus dcescriblng in
simple language the concrete tl a
life that renders his sern anic
prayers so forceful and a4 g to thon
such widespread aJtfr6n. Ilis first

was "an incendiary apeech."
A reporter of the -Post found Dr.
Uliburin enjoying the delight of a

'orty persons have been killed and 4
ibout seventy-five wounded, but it is
mposslble to got much information as '
ret. All is excitement and the streets J
ire filled with men and frightened I
women and children. The disaster is I
3ertainly appalling. As nearly as can I
be learned scores of houses have been
entirely wrecked. Twelve physicians
were aboard the relief train ihicloleft
for St. Cloud. -
ST. PAuL, April 14.-Privato advices I
say the storm struck the railroad be
tween the round house and depot, and
swept a path 600 yards wide through
the city, levelling between 150 and 200
houses. H. M. Clark, a well-known
lumberman who lives in St. Cloud,
says ninety persons'were killed and
more than 100 injured, many very
seriously. Superintendent Wakeman
of the Manitoba Road says that be
tween thirty and forty persons were
killed at Sauk Rapids, a few miles
southeast of St. Cloud, and nearly
double that number injured.
