UAMlI on a recent occasion Smarting
I apparently under BISUABCKS elect Ion In tho
Geestem ndo district In the teeth ot tho
Governments opposition tho Emperor r
seized an opportunity ot declaring that he
alone was master of the realm and that he
would tolerate no one at his side whose

j more one ponder this assertion more
preposterous It seems IfWUJLIAII I
really had autocratic powers he would b
stupid t brae of it but as a matter ot faot
alter a King of Prussia nor a German
Emperor does ho bear the slightest resem

potentate who can tax his subject at will

from any Gorman citizen or even from a
Prussian subject without the formal assent

In hla capacity King of Prussia WIL
UAKII 1 a constitutional sovereign It is
true of him as It is of King HUMBERT In
I Italy that ho reUns but does not govern
All legislation must emanate from the Prus
j sian Parliament which consists of an upper
n chamber or House of Lords and a Land tar
or Chamber of Deputies The civil odmlnls
xtratlonof the kingdom is In the hands ot
Ministers directly responsible to tho lower
House That principle Is now impregnably
S r established It is true that for four years
between 1862 and 1866 BISMAHCK persisted
in acting 8 Prime Minister in the faco of
repeated votes of censure Year after year
ho went on levying taxes without authority
the Landtag refusing to pass a money bill
Yet no one know bettor than BISUABCK
a he ha often since acknowledged that he
risked his head nor does any one doubt
that had KOnlggratz brought defeat in
stead of victory t Prussia he might have
Buffered the fate of STRAFFOBD It is Im
probable that any other statesman would
prble oter sttsman
face such risks a were confronted at that
crisis by the iron Chancellor nor should
S it b forgotten that BISMAECK himself
hastened t obtain an act of indemnity from
I S Prussian Parliament whllo it was flushed
with elation at the splendid outcome of the
AustroPrusslan war He could not have
made a moro distinct and solemn avowal of
his previous violation of the law

Tl > e Holy Bible
This week the American Bible Society has
celebrated at Chlckering Hail tho seventy
fifth anniversary ItJ birth It was ouoot
the fffof the groatorgaiiizntlons for ttho
gratuitous distribution of the Scriptures es
tablished In pursuance of the Protestant
theory that the Bible Is the only Infallible
rule of faith and iiractice and that the d t
ot interpreting it rests with the Individual
or In other words that Scripture Is its own
Interpreter as the Divinely provided guide
to salvation
Under that fundamental principle it be
comes the prime d t and the first essential
of Protestantism t put the Bible into the
hands of every human being and t teach
him t read t The worldwide distribu
tion of the Scriptures their translation into
every tongue and thounlyorsol diffusion of
education are therefore neer conse
quences of the Protostnnt theory
In beginning of the present century i
or at the time when the present lat agen
cies for the distribution ot tho Scriptures i
were founded England andthis country
the Bible had already been translated Into
nearly all the languages Europe and Into
a few of the Oriental tongues Since the
formation of the British and Foreign Bible
Society the parent organization In 18 the
number of languages Into which transla
tions have been made has increased to i
about two hundred and fifty though
some of them are of parts of the Scriptures
only This represents a prodigious amount
of labor performed In great port by Protes
tant missionaries and it furnishes imprrs
slve evidence of profound faith in the Bible
a the infallible Word of GOD Of all these
translations the seven principal Bible socie
ties of Europe and America have distributed
at least 200000000 copies The American Bible
Society alone has circulated during the
seventyfive years of Its existence 54000000
copies of the Scriptures and tbo British and
Foreign Bible Society in existence since
18 has sent out about twice a many
The various branches of Protestantism
differ a t other matters but they all agree
a t the duty and necessity of disseminat
ing the Bible and therefore they unite in
suppr of those societies I Is true that a
part of the Baptists separated in order t
circulate a version of their own with the
word baptize of the authorized English
version translated immerse but they are
among the most strenuous of Protes
tants In demanding that tho Bible shall
to human tho
go t every being a
only infallible guide t salvation The prln
at the celebration
clpal speaker anniversary celebraton
of the Bible Society at Chlckering Hall on
Wednesday evening was the Rev PHILLIPS
elected t b and his appearance on that
platform Is a striking indication of Eplsco
pal sentiment in approval of the pur
poses of the association From one end
of Protestantism t the other tin
Bible Is revere as the revealed Word
of GOD Whatever doubts there may b as
to the necessity of other religious agoncies
there is none a t the Christian obligation
t exhaust every means for tho distribution
of the Bible to mankind Accordingly tbo
American Bible Society U 1 tho centre of a
widespreading system of societies for this
purse formed in every denomination and
scattered throughout the world
The popular reverence for the Bible Is also
strong and It extends to every copy of
the printed Book and includes even those
who reject the supernatural authority
of Scripture At least BO for a j tho exhi
bition of outward and formal respect con
cerned they are all of on mind Tho vari
ous Bible societies arc careful to put copies
of the Scriptures in tho reading rooms sad
bedrooms of hotels and upon all ships and
steamers It cannot be said that those
volumes give evidences of having been
extensively read but they are never
defaced Tha most flippant treAt the
Holy Bible with Instinctive nnd dis
tinctive respect Roysterem do not tear
out Its leaves to light I their cigars Tho
lewd do not disfigure its pages Gamblers
on Mississippi steamers will gravely and
carefully put away the Bible boore using u
table en which it lies Other books
are dogcar d and grimy with Indifferent
use but the Bible remains clean and
whole The bibliolatry of which Prof
DBIOOS s ok so slightingly Is very
generally displayed In this country at
least The Bible Is treated as a book apart
Iroraallotlier books even by men who carry
his theories to their logical conclusion and
reject Its divine authority altowther They
look upon any misuse of f tbe printed volumo
t In bad taste and t her is among the
usually thoughtless and profane a supersti
tious fooling which prevents them from do
Ing injury to it No matter where a Bible is
put It maybe assumed that it will b safe
from 111 usage
These aro very significant fact and they
suggest the revolutionary change In cllglotia I
sentiment which would occur if belief In tho
Blur at tlip tictuni and lufulllbln Won of
GOD passes away among Uio people I it ia
n book of orrofcaiong with Its truths Its gen

Signer Cortes Confession Case for
Our Government
I Is surely an extraordinary and inex
plicable confession that Signer COBTE the
Italian Consul at New Orleans has made
Itlnu Cnsll Orleas ha as
given in yesterdays SuN
I contains allegations which Consul COKTB
ought to b Invited to support with legal
evidence before he takes his departure for
Rome next week I
Ho confesses that a few weeks ago ho had
private Information concerning certain mur
derous projects that Italian resldeutaof New
Orleans were prepared to execute
He did cot at once communicate this in
formation t the authorities of the city in
order that preparations might b mae to
prevent the projected murders I Is only
now that he has given it t b known that ho
w In possession pf such information
This is a serious business These are astounding
tounding revelations and Consul COHIK
should not leave the country just after
making them They Involve questions of
concern t the American people
Consul COBTE says
The diy after tbe lynching fof lbs Italian atXew

Thus it appears that Consul COHTE noti

night of the lynching moro than a dozen

that they would dynamite the Pickwick
Club which one of tho lynchors belonged
Anumber of Italian women alto visited
him the came night and insisted on
rovenjro1 even I It should precipitate a riot
A force of several hundred Italians offered
to secure his own protection by acting as
his body guard < Ho says that he argued
for hours with these Inflamed people that
ho warned them of the danger of the course
whlch they were about to take and th the
dissuaded them from perpetrating the deeds
uponwhloh they wave bent
Truly these are astounding revelations
It seems t us that Consul COUE having
raodolthls confession ought to b required
by < our Gpvornmcnt before bc leaves for
Borne to give an explanation thereof and t
toll the names of those of his countrymen In

Wo learn from 1 religious paper that tho
Protestant clergy here Alt approve ot the order
just Issued by the German Kaiser that the

elaborate Tollreasoned sermon properly

whether tbe sermon be extemporaneous or

ers who can expound the doctrine of a text

question is a momentous one for the clergy

There Is news from Ottawa that the Cana
dian Government is about to adopt measures
and make an appropriation for the purpose of
inducing the return to the provinces ot the
Canadians who have come to this country We
suppose there must b hundreds of thousands
of Canadians in the United States and a Urge
proportlpn of them are In the New England
States where they are engaged on the farms
In tbe factories and in all kinds of labor and
where they get better wages for their work
than are paid in the Canadian provinces
We suppose they stay In this country because
they find life more satisfactory here than they
found it in Canada and It may be doubted
whether even an appropriation will induce I
them to go back to Canada a long as th con
ditions of existence here ate better than there
Among the Canadians living In this city and
State there are many men of enterprise who
have won success in business and who would
smile Ufe at any proposition to return t provincial

bo too much to expect of the gentlemen who
assemble in their thousands at Central Park
every Sunday to listen to the Inspiring strains
of Cappas band to arise and uncover their
heads when the national anthem is being
layed Dont you think that this slight respect
spect is due to the 8turSpaneled Banner
I am not a nativeborn American but I am an
American citizen and am ready to fight and
die for the glorious banner and Institutions of
the land of my adoption I it should ever become
necessary t do so The starry banner is my
flag and the StarSpangled Banner is my
national anthem
I cannot understand how nativeborn Ameri
cans can treat this soulInspiring air with such
disrespect A lot of Italians just after landing
conld not b any colder or less I demonstrative
I may b argued that the majority of the peo
ple who go to hear the music on Sundays are
foreigners but to my mind this is no excuse
for It does not follow that foreigners should be
ingrates They ought at least to respect the
flog and national anthem of the country which
protects them and gives them homes and even
furnishes munlc every Sunday for their amuse
ment 111 beautiful park
hapn that you will speak through TRI BUN

from friends They make tbimstlvespartla

ignore those that areof small eonseauene
The more Innocent young girls i smilemost
brightly on the young man who send flowers

lienare so foolish too They fancyWoBt
sincere and honest and consider it a privilege
when they are allowed to make apresentot
value to a beauty that has flattered their
vanity Alas I I mourn that my sex Is so hyp
oorltlcal and grasping I renumber thetime
when It was considered an Insult for menlo
give presents to young Indies Now however
woman has ohangaa all that and after man
has known a girl a week he asks her to

when we were a good denl younger thawe
are now You know well enough that you
would not allow one of your dauihtart toao

they would noxer dream of manojuTrtngfor

yon are different from other mnther or four
daughter superior to all other girls 7 War
the world Is crowded Kith just such pee
Pie and In them Is the arest spirit that
