..... r .. . . . 2 Mr was anointed of the Spirit to preach to, and who alone "heard llim gladly." Jcdge O'Roi iike of Indiana ban just decided a cam apiinst organize labor in that state. It was a case brought under the law of 1893, making it a mis demeanor for employers to discharge men because they belong to labor organ izations. Judge O'Rourke in his decision declared the law was defective and bung ling and therefore inoperative. Between venal legislators and judges, protection is beyond the reach of the poor. BOOKS AND MAGAZINES ' The Cbccifixion of Philip Strong by Charles M. Sheldon. Tho above is a very vigorous, strong story. It produces a lasting impression and certainly reveals high qualities of fiction writing in the author. The story is evidently written with a purpose, and that purpose is certainly not to encour age that negative, soulless struggle that books like Robert Ellesmere and others portray. There is a buoyant strength and cheerful confidence in the character of PhilipStrongthat is very wholesome, and the weakness of thechurch and the need for social reform could not be more graphic ally brought out than in this book. It will be a source of strength and encour agement to those who have run up against the, seemingly, almost insuper able obstacles that Philip Strong met and who have been discouruged and over whelmed by them. It will also open the eyes of those obtuse ones that "have eyes and see not," that think that every thing is all right becauwe, forsooth, their selfish interests are safe, and will not con sider the wrongs of others. The book is gotten up in an exceedingly neat and attractive fashion and we strongly commend it. Published by A. C. McClurg k Co., Chi cago. Price fl. The School Review for March contains some excellent things. A portrait of Rt. Hon. Arthur Herbert Dyke Acland is added as a frontispiece and a brief sketch of his life and writings is given. The out look notes are good, as is the Education of a Naturalist. There is a very import ant communication from Prof. Albert S. Cook, of Yale University, on the subject of college entrance requirements in Eng lish. We would recommend the School Review to all high school and other teachers in the state. - ' Macmilam & Co. have issued a large number of unusually excellent new books, among which are an exhaustive work on botany, by the German botanists, Stros burg, Noll, Schenck, and Schimper. It is a masterpiece. Then there is the new edition of ele mentary lessons in electricity and mag netism by Prof. Silvanus Thompson, a valuable work; and a volume of essays and studies by J. Churton Collins, on Dryden, predecessors of Shakespeare, etc. Miss Yonge hits another of her pop ular stories, a Long Vacation. It is in teresting to notice that the call for Kidd's Social Evolution has been so great that Macuiillan & Co. have issued a 25cent edition in paper. A great book will be Louis Agassiz; His life, Letters, and Works, by Jules Marcou, soon to be ssued. Motives of Lifk ty David Swing. There nas been a pood deal of interest recently among litt r.iryclubsan'd general readers both in th city and elsewhere in the character min writings of David Swim;. And right , j-u, too, for 110 more unique and helpful i-liurnuttrs have aj peared in the A merit-tin pulpit for a long time. Motives of L ic in the new and en larged edition iron tains pomp of the choicest things of Dr. Swiugs. The style has that beauty, freshness and vigor very difficult to find. These sermons, like others of his, nr-- wonderful in the number of proverb, wiwe sayings, that they furnish in a mere sentence. He could put a strikum truth in very few words and hurl it at his hearers or read ers so that it would i rike like a cannon 'shot. That terseness and directness that cuts to the very heart is noticeable in this book. We e.iti recommend no book more highly than this to those who wish to keep by them as an inspiration words of so great a leader of the people. The paper, binding and spirit are all that could be desired. Indeed the pub lishers of this book are noted not only for the excellence of their works in a lit erary way. but also for clothing that ex cellence in uuusually attractive forms. Published by A. C. McClurg & Co., Chicago. Price fl.OO. Clipped from Business Letters. A subscriber writing from Hemingford says: "It is with the deepest regret that I have to answer yours without remit ting to yon 1 1 for the past year. I have taken the Alliance sinceits first issue and know that, it is very important for it to reach every home in the state. The facts are, I have lost my home by Shylock, have been closed out of everythingexcept team, wagon, and cow, by banks and loau companies. We raised no crop to amount to anything in this part of the state. The loan companies and specula tors have done all they could to keep aid and goods from coming here. They say it will ruin the country, will keep out im migration." USURY. What is the Moral Meaning? The Bible is the Only Moral Law Giver In Leviticus, 25; 35, 3G, 37, we read that "usury" is not to be taken from the poor, whether brother,. stranger, or so journer. And in Deuteronomy, 23; 20, it is allowed to be taken from strangers. To avoid a contradiction, this must mean a stranger that is not poor. The conclusion as to these two passages is: that he who must borrow is poor, and must not be charged anything by the loaner. And he that has things to loan is not poor. See Deut.. 23; 19. The fact that men have things to loan, shows clearly that they have more than they need. And the fact that men must bor row, proves' that they have not enough. Hence the command not to receive pay for the use of anything loaned to the poor. In the light of the moral law as given by God through Moses, "usury" implies all or any pay for the use of any thing loaned. And as the definition given to it in the rituals of the churches iB in conflict with this moral law, the words "that U unlawful interest" should be stricken out and thus put thechurch rules fully in harmony with the lSible. A. M. C. Collectivism, or Common Ism. (Continued from 8th page.) In conclusion 1 want to say a few words about the Christian Corporation of Lin coln which was organized last month, and has now a membership, counting men, women and children, of upwards of sixty souls. This is as far as 1 know the only society of the kind in our state, and its success as the pioneer of a new idea should be of the greatest interest to us; we cannot but be far more interested in a Nebraska socialistic enterprise than we would in a similar andertaking in another state. Here are the philosophy and purposes of this society: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men created have a right to live an') to share equally the abundant nat ural provisions for a happy existence; that the earth is theirs by common in heritance, for use only, and not for spec ulation; that because it is the inexhaust ible source of values no equal value can lie offered for it, or a part of it, and that therefore no ltist title of absolute owner ship is acquired in it; that it must belong without possible alienation of title to all individuals of all generations. We hold that the individuals of the race are inter . dependent, each needing all and having the rower to serve all; that each indivi dual differs in his wants and capabilities from all others, differs not simply in de gree, and that he is as much needed by the body politic, as is each member of the human body, to constitute a perfect whole; weholtl that sell-interest, thegood of the individual, is so bound up with society interests, or the interests of all other individuals, that it cannot be pre served apart, that individuals cannot look out for their own interests only, as in the present business and political struggle, without insecurity and immense loss; we hold that there can be no clash ing of interests between members of a healthful, naturally organized society and that in proportion to its numbers through organic unity, will be the meas ure of individual service, benefits and en joyments. We hold that each member of society should b" equally nourished, equally exercised according to his ability and receive equal honor for equal exer tion." . "Therefore, in order toopenthe door of opportunity to every individual, to pro vide.employmeut and to secure to the laborer the full product of his toil, to banish the "fear of want", and providea competency for old age, to establish the brotherhood of man and make possible full obedience to the Divine command, "love thy neighbor as thyself," this cor poration is created. "Art. 1. Skc. 1. The objects of this association shall be to purchase land, erect buildings, institute agricultural, mining, mechanical, manufacturing, and merchandising- industries, establish schools, libraries and institutions of art and science, and in short operate and maintain any enterprise achievable by united effort which mny encourage and foster the highest forms of human welfare and personal freedom. "Art. 2. Skc, 2. This corporation is .organized under article 40 of chapter 16, compiled statutes of Nebraska, 1893; with the intention of providing a social organ zation for socially, or in common, holding or owning all "means of produc tion and distribution" possessed by its members, the purpose being to substitute the principle of collective or social owner ship for that of privateownership in such "means of production and distribution," meaning by these terms all land, labor and capital, in whatsoever form, used by snid corporation in the production and distribution of wealth. Its originators holdinir that only by such means, supple mented by the co-operative effort of all ineinlo rs and such substitution of the co ojM'rative system with equal product sharing, for the competitive system, with its absorption or all product in interest, rent and net profits, can the' great and noble ends set forth above be obtained." The Christian Corporation does not, so far as I know, require its members to be long to any specified form of Christianity They do not compel him to wear any special form of dress, and the personal f ff cts of members nro not interfered with, thereby removing a great item of friction in all communes, it is the little matters of life which trouble us most. The idea, as I understand it, is to put all real estate and other property of the members together, and so make a com bined effort of labor and capital. The corporation will concentrate its agricul tural euergies this year on two fine farms which have been given it by some of its members. These farms will be improved to the greatest possible extent, and be come the nucleus for still more extended efforts in the future. They are located in Butler and Lancaster counties. The cor poration owns besides considerable other property in the way of scattered lots and lands. It is proposed to start a brick yard this spring, and also a store on the Rochdale plan in Lincoln, which will certainly prove a success, and thereby occupy the energies of the balance of the corporation ists. As more come in to the society the field of its operation will be extended in ali directions. The govern ment and by-laws permit all members to have an equal voice in the management of the affairs of the corporation, and the initiative and referendum principle of legislation will be used this, I believe, is the first time that this has been tried in theinternal management of similarsocie ties. This society believes that they can work out their own salvation, and by their example the salvation of many others right here and now, and that it will not be necessary to emigrate to South America or elsewhere to accomplish that result. The future history of the Christian Corporation will, I hope,, show a prosperous career.

So many letters of inquiry come re garding the use of the coins introduced by our Aid Degree that, to fully answer all, I enclose letter from the national secretary of the Aid Degree, which ex plains itself, Topeka, Kans., Mar. 8th, 1805. Sister J.T. Kellie, Hart well, Neb. Yours of the 4th nt hand and carefully noted. In regard to the trade system will say that we will furnish the coins at exact cost, namely S3.00 per hundred, and will order them by the thousand so they will come cheaper than otherwise, but we must have the money for them when we send them out. These coins can be used over and over again so that a tew will be sufficient for each Alliance, I would recommeud that every Alliance member in this county join in this ar rangement. In this way you can control sufficient volume of trade so you can make it an object for the dealers to make contracts, lhis system is working very nicely where it has been introduced properly. The Alliauce members in Iowa are making the best success with it. I am satisfied that if your people will take hold of it in earnest and get sufficient members so you can command a good volume of trade, so that you can make good contracts with your dealers, it will help you out in every instance, provide means for your members to pay their dues and to carry a policy of insurance if they so desire. If further explanation of the matter is desired write us. We enclose circular explaining the system, also one of the coins. Yours truly, S. D. Cooley.

One savs that al though they have plenty to eat "money is an unknown quantity," and the pay ment of debts seems to puzzle the most of them. Some uncomplimentary things are said 01 the traitors who have been running our government" and reducing the laboring class to serfdom, so that if charity is given it must be by those who rob us and so give them the chance to make us feel our dependence upon them for our lives and the chance to work.
