The United Mates Supreme Court has
just rendered a decision In the ease of the
heirs of Herman Speidlo ngailist Jacob
Jlcnrici, brough) Oil an appeal from thc
United state? Circuit Corni for tho Western
district of Pennsylvania which brings to
light an Interesting story.
In ism Geo, Rupp, brought to this
country from Wurtcillburg about 50 fami
lies and .settled on the banks of the Ohio
river about 20 miles from Pittsburg. The
Company were known as thc "Harmony
economists" and tho town they fancied was
called Economy, I tapp not only installed
himself ns leader, but informed ids follow
eis thal ho was their prophet and that they
would jeopardize their salvation if they
failed to turn all their property over to the
church, he being thc sell same church.
This was done and then the self-made
prophet issued another edict forbidding
marriage among his subjects, Everything
went smoothly villi thc colony, and they
llourished and were apparently happy until
the year 1831, when one of their number,
Herman S pied el, revolted, went to Pitts
burg and married. It was to recover his
portion of thc wealth of the "Economy"
society that his heirs brought snit. The
property involved is valued al $30,000,000
und as onl\ about 15 families remain nil
aro in aflhient circumstances, I lem ici, the
defendant in this suit, is now HO years old.
Without going into the merits of the case,
RH to whether (he society was a proper one
or not, the Court held that the complain
ant, Bpeidcl. having allowed his claim to
sleep for 1 alf a century, the Court must
hold his demand to be a stale claim, and

Mr. Cleveland Talki Itualneta.
The President has been talking about
1H88. It happened in this way:
Thc subject ol' the inter state commerce
commisBioncrsliip was under consideration,
and the issue of politics was brought In,
.The question was whether a certain gen
tleman whom the President dcsii a to have
upon the commission could alford to ac
cept. Very frankly the point was made
that-Mr. ( levi land might not be his own
BUCCCSBOr, in which event the one accept
ing the commtssloncrship for the short
term would serve during the perplexing
mid unsatisfactory period that the law was
liebig pul in operation, and would then, in

Two interesting reports of legislative
committees appointed to investigate phases
of the labor question have been lately made
public. One is thc report of the commit
tee of tho House of Representatives ap
pointed to inquire into the cause of the
Western railroad strikes; the other is the
report of the committee of the New York
Assembly, which has been investigating
the recent coal strike at New York. Both
committees devote some space to a consid
eration of the rights and thc limits of
action of organized lubor, and both agree
in taking asonad view of the matter. Their
conclusion is in effect that, while thc right
of a man or of bodies of men to refuse to
labor for what they regard as unjust re
muneration is unquestionable, the right of
employers to determine what wages they
shall pay is equally unquestionable, as is
thc right of workmen who desire to keep
aloof from labor associations or combina
tions lo dispose of their labor as they please
and at what rates they please, and that any
constraint or intimidation intended torestrii t
this freedom of employers and unassoci
ated laborers is improper aud unlawful.

Postmaster, Columbio, S O,
DHAN Bin: l saw notices in thc papers
recently of the mobbing and ox pulsion
from your villago, or city, of a hand of
five men and women preachers of holiness.
It Was published in our papers as an out
rage of Southern intolerance. But 1 have
just benni that one of this holiness parly
was Ansel M. Raper. If that is the man. 1
know him to he,a wild fanatic, living in
adultery.^nml who ought to he driven out
of any community where they undertake
to teach. I write to ask you, or any one to
whom you may refer lids, for information
as the facts in the case. 1 should be sorry
to have prejudice created here at the North
against your society on un hist grounds. If
the mali's nonie who lends that holiness
party is Ansel M. Raper, then it is all
explained, for 1 know that man to bo unfit
to live out of Jail. I have no object in
writing, except to get the facts and vindi
cate your people from nil blame, us 1 shall
do through our papers. Yours, truly,

Permit mo to thank you for the kind sug

point me to the ellice of RegiStOr Of Deeds
for the District of Columbia, should tho
Senate reject the noclnation of Mr. Trotter,
as appealed in your issiisc of the ?lil inst.
I rejoice to sec the time coming when Inci
dents In the administration of political par
tics will show to the colored mun, of thc
South especially, that ho must regulate bis
politics as white men do, to wit. according
to his lx\st Interests and the highest welfare
of the government.
I do not endorse much that tho Demo
eratic party hus done toward tho negro, bul
I recognize thc folly of dwelling upan it,
in thc face of changed relationships and a
new era in the South. The negro must se
lcet in thc South that line of polities which
will give him protection In his rights. To
sa}' to him that he cannot he protected isas
bad as to deny him protection.
Fearing that some may say thal this ls
written to favor my nomination lo tho
office, let me say that I know while 1 write
of Mr. Trotter's confirmation, and am glad
of it. Why should a negro Democrat he
objected to by Republicans and II white
accepted I cannot understand. The' Ropilb
publican has done much good fer tho nc
pro; let it continue in well doing if it will,
but let it remember that its ward is a man.

There is a mi.-taken notion that a largo
