HI JIIIII.K IILAIII, OP INDIANA. iiig oath and dischargo my duty faithfully in this, as in all other canes, leaving tut) consequence! to mono who aro ro sponnible lor them. Your understand ing of the law I tiiko to bo this, viz: That it tho Judro thinks the salo ol liquor to bo productive of evil, or if people lnlorm mm by remonstrance that it ia productive ol evil, ho may refuse all licenses, and yet be doing hia duty under the law, although the applicant baa complied with the law with respect to bond, houseroom, char acter and in all other particulars. As a legal proposition this ia absurd. I never heard of a judgo in Pennsylva nia who entertained any Buch notion and there is no competont and cundid attorney who would adviso you that sucn was tbo law. 1 have said fre quently horotofore, during tbe lost five years, from the bench, that if it de pended on the will ol tbe judgo thero would be nono in Indiana count v. If it ia to be affected or controlled by remonstrances ot tho description allud ed to, tho probabilities aro that thoy can no obtained hero in abundance. In either event therefore there would bo no license, and what ia true as to Indiana county 1 have no doubt would also be as true to almost all tho coun ties in tho State, llow comes it that not tbo shchtet-t effort has ovor been made by any porson or persons in all thoso years to have the foregoing propositions declared to be law by the Supremo Court 1 Nothing would be easier man to make up a case lur de cision, and tho cost would bo trifling. I know probably a thousand good temporanco men in this county who bavo novor mado such effort, but no one oxpocts them to make it for the obvious reason that nono of them bo lieve the proposition or profess to bo liovo it. I am not eiieukinir ot that class oi men. 1 heir conduct is rational, and plain people can understand it. But what of thoso who do profess to believo it ? How does it coino that tbey bavo refrained, and still do re frain, from having the SupremcrCourt to declare the law. Such a decision would accomplish the rnmo results fur which carnost men have beon Strug. gling nt Hnrrisburg lor six years at eacn mooting ot the .Legislature. ,i hy is tbo cilort not mador Jlere la an opportunity and it is constantly open to do more for the cause, in a month, than can be done by a hundred years of blatherskite and misrepresentation. The Court will rejoice and so will the community at large, if the effort is successful. Yon havo doubtless mot a few of these men who profess to bo confidant of tho law on this eubjoct rnoa. .

As said by br.Wo,. (aprt,'M-U I ouarleld. Pa., Dee. 1, H tf. no judge in Pennsylvania could now refuse licenso ,for the reasons men tioned in tho remonstrance, without tho plainest violation of judicial duty, lie cannot set asldo a law merely be cause it does not ooincide with his views. It he could, instead of boing in. servants 01 tbe law, there would be no Inw for him except bis own pleasure What would be tbe use in having a Legislature it the judge can sot aside the ironactmonts whenevor he docs not like thorn? The evils aris ing from the sale of liquor are consid erations which I think mny fairly weigh with a Court and Inolino it to ithbold a license wbonevor a legal roason can be lound at all sufllcient for the purpose. This is tb. principle on which this Court has uniformly acted, and consequently the numlior of licenses bore is loss than In the great majority of eountios of equal population, lira not sure that there is much practical advanlago in this, to the cause of temperance becauso it gives a monopoly of the buainoss to a tew and therefore presents a stronger inducement to embark in it Rat as 1 did not make the law or ask it to be the Supreme Court, in a still moro ro- oont caso than tbeono alluded to, "We are certainly not to presume that tho refusal of tho liconse was arbitrary, and without some good roason." This last case is in entire accordance with the previous elaboralo decision of tbo Mupreme Court. Kvcry oandid lawyer knows it, and could not mistake it un less through dullness quito uncommon in the profession. It has never boon suggoslod anywhere, exocpt here, that It changed or modified the former do- oision In the slightest degree. Is it likely that all the Common I'leos Judges of the State are mistaken about tbe extent ol thoir powor 7 1 prcsumo you did not know that all the Judges in tne Commonwealth granted licenso. This, in Itself, was a .fact rathor un favorable to thoso whose manly pur pose was lo deceive you for you would naturally enough fool modest about asserting an opinion on a ques tion ol law, contrary to that held by tho wholo Vouch ol your Stale. Ilouce the anonymous loiters and little items eon from time to time in your news papers intimating mat ibis, mat, and the other judge bad granted no license made, I simply endeavor to keep my in bis district. I can conceive no good end to bo reached by all this misrepre sentation. Ever sinco tho local option law was repealed, and tho present licenso law passed, thoro have beon licenses in all tbo counties referred to. In ono of Ihe counties whore I have soon it Bomotimos stated, and othors intimated, that there was novor any license, the number ot licensed hotels and saloons bas lately been reduced to somothing less than ono hundred. It ia certainly strange that falsehoods snouid Do publislieu when they are capablo of oasy detoction but it some times bappons that a falsehood is suo- cosslul from its vory audacity, cspeci ally if tho atatoment comes train a re spectable man, who bas himsolf, beon imposed upon by the authors ol tho lio. For your information, as well as for tuo inlormation of .othors on a sub ect about which you iiave a right to be informod, 1 now give you tho language ui mo oupremo court, ana although you aro not lawyors, yet as men ol oommon senso you can see for your boIvos what the law is : "Whether any or all liconBO should bo granted is a legislative not a judicial question. Courts sit to ad minister the law fairly, as it is given to them, and not to muko or reneal it. Tbo law of the laud hus determined that licenses shall exist, and has im posed on the Court tho duty ot ascer taining the proper Instances in which tho licenso shall bo granted, and thoro- fore bas given it to the Court to do oido upon each caso as itarisus. in due course ol law, the act of dooiding is judicial not arbitrary or willful. The discretion vostcd in tho Courtis there fore a sound judicial discretion, and to bo a rightful judgment it must be ex orcised in the particular case, and upon tho facts and oircumstancos before the Court, and thoy have beon heard and duly considered in other words it is to bo exercised in each case according to tho rule givon by the Acts of As sembly. To say that I will grant no liccnso to any one, or that 1 will grant iu every ouo is not toucciuo juuiciaily on tho merits of tho caso, but to do termino beforehand, without a hearing, or elso to disregard what has boon neara it is, to determine not accord ing to law, but outsido of law and is not a legal judgment, but tho oxerciso ol an arbitrary will. Discretion iB thus dcacribod : whore anything is left to any person to bo done according to bis discretion the law intends it must bo dono with a sound discre tion and according to law, and tho Court of King's Bench hath a power to redress things that are other wise done, nothwithstunding they aro left to tho discretion of those that do them, it is the duty of tho Court therefore to hear cucb case on its evi dence and facts to ascortain the fit ness of tho applicant the necessity of nis uoubo lor tne public accominoda tion aa a botoi, and to see that the ap plicant has fully complied with tho law, before bis liconso can bo granted." Ibis languago is porloctly clear, and no person in .Pennsylvania, outsido of this county, has ever pretended that it would admit of the least misunder standing. Now, look at tho romon strance you sent the Court, in tho light oi mis uociBion, ana you will soo that it is nothing moro than a protost against tho liconso law. You Bay tho salo of liquor is unnecessary for tho ac commodation oi tbo traveling public. I think so too butthoSuprome Court Bay that tho propriety and policy ot license is not a question for tho judi ciarybut for the Legislature. It the ovidenoo Bbowed in any caso that tbo bouse of tbe applicant was not ncc ossary for the accommodation of stran gers and travellers, a Court could re fuse the liconBO on that ground, and yet be acting according to the law.

Thoy are the people the house is intended to accommodato tho liquor was designed for all whether strangers and travellers or not, except minors anu others to whom sules are forbidden. If tho necessity for liquor or tbo gcnoral policy of liconso were questions for theCourt, what ubo would it be to hoar each caso on its own par ticular facts tho duty to do which is so strongly taught in tho opinion noted ? A bearing in any caso would bo merely formal and wholly usoloss, for evory application would bo condemned in ad vance, and thrown out ot the Court if tho opinion ol the Judge was against tho necessity for liquor, or tbo pro priety ot a liconso law. Havo you over slopped to think how a Court would go about trying the question "Is liconso necessary V What would bo tho process? ilow lopg would tho trial last? What would be tbo nature of tho evidence adduced? One side would introduce- witness altor witness who would stato, In his opinion, liccnso. so far from boingnccossnry was a posi tively uau iiiing Hint it produced nothing but mischief and sorrow.

Now when the hoanng Is onded tho Judgo has tho same opinion about tho general pro priety nf liconso and tbe necessity lor liquor that he bad whon It began and ho sots his foot on that application. But as each case must bo heard on its own facts, ho takos up tho next appli cation, and goes through tho samo process ol opinions lor and against tho liconso law. You soo what nonsonso this is: and that liccnso ia a question of publio morals to bo passed on by tho legislature, and is not such a disputed question of fact or law as is proper to try in auourl. Ii it was lor the Court, then the question instead of depending on the will oi tne people who make tho laws through their Legislature would depend on thowillof tho Judgos who don t muko thorn, and havo no more voice in their making than any other number ot voters In tho Slate, is whisky necessary?

Who is so ignorant of tue iiinaamontai principles of his Gov ernment, as not to know that we have no master but the law, and that Judgos abovo all other porsons,aro i ts servants ? W hen thoro is a law on any given su bjoct it is lony ana maanoss to mm snout a Court having the power to regard it or disregard it at its pleasure. It is ly when a Inw violates tbo Consti. tulion that a Court may set it aside; but in doing so, it exercises no arbi trary powor it merely assorts and maintains tbe superior authority of tho Constitution, adopted by the pco- ne, and wuicn is master ot the Legis uture as well as tho Courts. Thoro aro a hundred things resting in the discretion ol the Courts, which 1 will not take timo to cnumerato. A Judge ignorant enough to suppose that ho could porlorm all duties rotating to them according to his own pleasure and not according to tbe rule furnished by the law, might make himself as ty rannical and odious as an Eastern des pot. It is difficult to deal with such absurdities with any degree of patience, and I forbear further remark. The present liccnso law is the most strin gent ever passed. Its penalties are heavy, and its commands difficult to keep. Whoever sells liquor under it. voluntarily enters upon a hazardous business. Any liconso law, however, is prooauly unacceptable to a largo ma jority of tbe peoplo of this county. Pooplo in many other counties like it no better. Rut dislike ol a law fur nishes no reason for setting it aside ex cept by legitimate methods, and to these methods the peoplo throughout the Stato aro confiuing themselves. On the other hand thoro aro a very large number of citizens in tho Stato wbodo like this law and have a legal right to expociioat it win Dotuirly administer ed as long as it remains on the statute book. Tho man who doos not ap preciate tho importance of adhering to law, has not thought much beneath the surface of things. Tho Court is tho last place to which anybody should turn for an example of insubordina tion. I know full well that the signers ot this remonstranco would not desire anything except what was proper and lawful, but thoy havo bocn grossly im posed on nnd deceivod, with rospoct to tno power ol the court.

The Census office has issued a bulle tin showing tbo distribution ot the pop. ulatlon of tho United States abovo sea- level. From this bulletin it appears thatncarlyone-fourthoftheinhahitants live below one hundred feel, I. e., along the Immediato seaboard and in the swampy and alluvial regions of the Houth ; moio tban two tilths below SOO ; more than throe-fourths below 1,000 foot, while 97 per cent, live below 2,000 feet. In tho aroa below 500 feet ia includod nearly all that part of the population which is ongagod in manu facturing, and most of that engagod in tho culture of cotton, rice and sugar. mo intervals between tbo BOO and the 1,500 fcot contours comprises tbe greater part of the prairio States, and tbe grain producing States ot the Northwest. East of the OUth meridian tbo contour of 1,500 foot is practically tho nppcr limit of population, all tbe country lying upon that elevation boing mountains. The population botween 2,000 and 5,000 feet is (bund mainly on tho slope oi me great western piuinB. in this region tho fall bctwocn 2,000 and 3,000 feet ia almost everywhere tho debata ble ground between tho arid region ot tho Cotdillorau platoau and the humid region of tho Mississippi Valloy. Abovo 3,000 loot irrigation ia almost univers ally nocosbary for success In agricul tural operations. Between 4,000 and 5,000 feet, and more marked bctwoen 5,000 and 6,000 feet, the population is decidedly in ex cess ot tbo grade or grades below it This is mainly duo to tho fact that tbe densest settlement at high altitudes in tho Cordilleran region is at the base of tbo Rocky mountains and in tho valloy of the groat Salt lake, which regions lie between 4,OU0 and 6,000 foet. Of these tho extensivo settlements at the base of tho mountains in Coloiado aro mainly between 5,000 and 6,000 feet. Above b,00U teot the population, which ia confined of course to tho Cordilleran region, is almost entirely engaged in the pursuit of mining, and the great part ot it is locatod in Colorado, Now Moxico, Nevada and California. Ex amining the increase in population in the several divisions during the past decade there is noticed a docided incrcaso in tbe lowest grade, due to increase in our seaboard towns and cities; also a gain, though not as do cided, in tho grado of 100 to 500 loot, with a more marked increase between 500 to 1,000 feet. Botwoon 1,000 and 2,000 feet tho increase fans been nearly 50 per cent. j In this grade, thoeffectof immigra tion in new and previously unsettled regions appears, iu part in Texas, AanBas,rtebraska,L)akotah, Minnesota. Above 2,000 foet, the increase, though small numerically, is proportionally very great, iiotwcon 4,uoo and B.ouo it is more than 100 por cent, duo mainly to the nowly-a wakened interest in mining, lo this cause may also be largely attributed the increase in popu lation in the highor altitudes. A com putation based upon tho fow iacts here submitted shows that the mean eleva tion of the population above the soa is about 700 leet. Tho mean elevation of tbo surface ot the Unitod States has been estimated at 2,600 feet TIIEPOPESMESSAQK TO TUE CZAR. Statements that have found their way into the columns of some of the loading newspapers of the country in reference to tho standpoint from which tho Czar, aa the bead of the Russian Church, ia viewed from a Roman Cath olic altitude, rondor necessary a few words of explanation in order to cor rect an erroneous impression likely to he produced by the publication towhich we havo relorred. The New York 3"i'rnj, in referring lo tho subject, said among othor things : "From tbe Ro man Catholic standpoint the Czar is a heretic and an anti-Christ" This, wo aro assured upon high Catholio author ity, is not the case. The Crar la rn. garded by the Roman Catholic Church as simply a schismatic, because he is separated from the head of the Catholio Church. The difference between a heretic and a achismatio is that the former denies some of tbe revealed truths, while the latter admits them but does not recognize the Pope as the supreme head of the church. In this sense tbe Czar, aa the ruler of his sub- weeks ago last Sunday an attempt was mauo to entice ber from Sunday school by a forged note from homo, but the Hevorend Dr. liuehsch, rnbbi of the Madison Avenue Synagogue, suspected something wrong and detained tbe child. Mr.Strasburgerviowod tho body lt t n AimiA rnnn at r rff atiM 1 1. A I . M saw him before. He is at a loss why J?ct"' t'la"n, al80 "premf control in he should be singled out for such an il"e "lall,-r ol religion, and in that ro- ispcui is, as viewed irom tho l atholio j standpoint, simply a pretender and a scuismailc layman, wbool course baa no claim to the title of Supreme l'outitl. Neither tbe Pope nor any Catholio re garde tho Russian autocrat as anti. Christ in tbo scriptural sonse, and at no timo bas such an epithet boon ap plied oithor by tho Pope or by any Catholic to him. The Czar is thus not, as we have explained, regarded by the Catholic Church as an enemy of Christ, but only in as much as he onnoses tha divine regimen ot the itoman Catholio religion. The Catholics, of course, re gard tbe Czar as an oppressor of re ligion, as be bas by lorcible means com pelled millions of Catholics to turn Irom tho laitb of their forefathers. That the fact of tbe Pope sending mes sages of condolence to tbo new Czar, and "thereby recognizing heresy and sympathizing wiih anti-Christ," as as serted by the Times, is an equally un tenable proposition. Tbo Pope is not only the spiritual hoad of tbe Catholio Church, but be is also at the same timo, like the Czar, a prince, koldimr diplumatic relations, even although de prived of bis temporal power, and in the latlor capacity sent hia messages of condolence to the family ol the mur dered Czar, just as did the other princes of European countrios, and such indeed as was sent by tho beads of our own and other republics. Non-Catholic princos arc, of course, outside tho pale of tbo Catholic Church, and the Pope ar rogalcs and exercises no spiritual pow er nor jurisdiction whatever ovor thorn, and tho anathemas which the Holy See occasionally proclaims ere inflicted on such as belong to the religion ot which it is the recognized head on earth. In a religious sense therefore tho Pope, it will be soon, baa no more to do with tho Czar of Russia or any othor non-Catholic prince tban he bas eeitlltkA L'inf'.l.a L1 L A NO TIIEIl CIIA RLE Y ROSS CASE. THE ABDUCTOR KILLED AT THE OUTSET. A man built a bouse worth 110,000 at Andovor, Mass., without spending a dollnr.

The labor was obtained on tbe aame plan, and oven the widow who boarded tho workmen was swindled. Tbe man lives plaoidly in bis fine residence, but is not greatly lovod by hia neighbors. About two weoka ago Mrs. Louis Strasburgor, 128 East Sixty-first street, tho wife of a wealthy dealer in watches at 15 Maiden Lane, Now York, rocotved a lettor demanding (00,000 and threat ening the abduction of her little daugh ter Rosa in case of reiusal. Mr. Stras burgor immediately put the case in the hands of tho detectives. By their di rection thero was a brief correspond ence with tho blackmailer.

The Rev. John Jasper, Richmond's well known colored preacher, repcatod his celebrated lecture in Richmond on a recent Sunday evening, before a largo audience. The renowned "sun" orator preach ed from the book of Exodus : "The Lord is a Man of War ; the Lord is His Name." In very graphio manner tho preacher carried bis large and very attentive audience over tne limes when Israel was in Egypt, and across tho Red Sea, the Wilderness, the Jordan, passod Joricho, and down to the wars ot Joshua, and at this point proved to the satisfaction ot a large class of bis hearers that Joshua did command tho the "sun to stand still." The preacher referred to many passages alluding to tne rising ana going down ol the sun. ins logic a oou i ihe distance ol the sun from the oarth was very fine, when, wilh contempt, ho said some wise men, so called, stated the distance to be forty millions, otbors fifty millions, and one as mucn as ono hundred and lour mill ions of milos.
