It has existed since the establishment
of Government by man. Tho outlaw
lias been found In all ages and in all
countries. Barabas was a robber In
the very zenith of the Kornau empire a
servile war by refugees from justice
lasted for a decade, requiring great
armies to crush It out. Orators In our
Democratic country have been fond of
declaring this the refuge of the op
pressed in all lands. Hut robber bands
organized for plunder, by hundreds and
thousands, reached this country with
the fathers and for two hundred ycar.-> j
preyed upon the commerce along our '
coasts und of course murdered when
ever murder became necessary.
Theorists in all the ages have filled
the oarth with dogmas against existing
Institutions and the existing order of
things. Until recent modern days a
popular ruler, a successful general or a
king by divine right (sooallod) was con
veniently removed or put out of the
way as a common place or ordinary
afTair. As a rule, ambition, and tho
desire to usurp rule, was the motive in
In recent years and within the short
poriod that education and liberty, freo
speech and a freo press, have grown In
the nations, a vast litorature has spread
over the world affecting economic or
der or governmental regulations. So
cieties exist under many names for the
propoganda of Idoas, and theories,
honestly and dishonestly held, antago
nizing existing institutions and sag- 1
gesting remedies. They arc known as
nihilists, anarchists, communists, so
cialists, etc., and progagate their
theories secretly or openly as may be
found practical according to tho local
ity. Then there arc thousands of the
ablest of mankind, as Tolstoi, a ltus
8ian of high rank and vast wealth, and
a volumionous writer, who have recent
ly tilled tho oarth with communistic or
kindred theories. The armies of dis
contented throughout tho earth (and
they arc legion, naturally.) it may bo
honestly, and dishonestly, espouse
those theories, It is bat a step from
hatred to govormont?- to the Governor,
and of course that among tho weak,
und tho malignant muss, individual
murderers may be found. They falsely
and madly conclude themselves tho
stop children of the oarth, and that by
removing tho agent, thoy romovo tho
catiso of their immuginury wrongs.
Thla Is an age of wonderful intellec
tual activity and a million or millions
are born every year who think it is
their mission to reform the institutions
of men. We are not going to get rid
of anarohy and those false isms until
wo are rid of mon.
Closing the gates against anarchists
at tho great Ports is absurd. Anarch
ists will breed among us as tho grass
grows. In the mean while, wdiile there
is no such dream to bo entertained as
tho perfeotability of mankind, the
world will improve. Rulers, and
great men, and rich, will continue to
be the victims of the assaults of mad
men and misanthropes,but society must
abide the conditions as in the past.
But tolerance for liberty should not
wouken the hand of justice. The mur

Wellington's Late Denial.
Washington, September 11?.?Senator
Wellington, of Maryland, has written
a letter to a friend In this city, denying
that ho said ho was indifferent to tho
shooting of McKinley and expressing
his abhorronco of Czolgoc/.'s crime.
Wellington was promptly expelled
from tho Union Loaguo Club of Balti
more, and the proposition came from a
Southern Journal to expel him from
tho Senate. The Sena'or was given no
time to explain. It comes from people
losing their heads, and somewhat in
this instance from Wellington voting
with tho Democrats in the last Con
Webator tho Internal Kcvenue Col
lector, dying, creates confusion in tho
camp. Clayton and L. W. C. Hlalock,
aro both discussed by the old lino Re
publicans Tho McLaurln crowd, it Is
said, will hustle for a commercial
Democrat. Tho President will
hardly give tho small matter atten
tion for sonic days. Though a
first class horsomaii, be will want somo
time to arrange his political housing,
and to be firmly set in tho saddlo be -
fore using his spurs.

Owing to tho Small amount of corn
saved along tho banks of baluda, our
farmers aro busy cutting and housing

the sun shines."
Tho health of our community is very

The Lord has most wonderfully bless
ed us in tmo of the most gracious re
vivals that we have had at betbabara
in a numbor of years. The preaching
was most earnestly, eloquently ami suc
cessfully dune by that hard working
man of God, Rev. .). 15. I'arrott. This
being the eighth meeting that ho baa
been in ho seemed fully prepared for
tho work, for the Spirit unmistakably
blessed every service. Before the first
sermon was concluded. Ills power was
manifested by Impressing our dear old
pastor and his people to humble them
selves before tho Lord, imploring Him
for more faith. The prayer was answer
ed and eight joined, before tho pro
tracted mooting closed. Wc aro so
grateful to the Lord for sending Uro.
I'arrott, and that through him, Jesus
has blessed pastor and people, honoring
that lovo which binds our hearts so
closoly together, and wo don't expect
anything hut death to soperato us.
