fne action of the Episcopal convention
at Minneapolis in i-cnding brotherly greet
ings to the Methodist conference in session
V few block; away is an unexpected inno
vation on Kp.scopal precedent. Notwith
standing the fact that we must all climb
tbe same ladder to future bliss there is a
rivalry between certain churches that
prevents active co-operation in the work
of Christianizing the world. This ap
parent Jar in the church Jamily is rapidly
moving away. anJ doubtless the result of
too strict an Interpretation of church creeds.
The various chnTCh organizations now
striving to uplift society owe their ex
istence more to the different temperaments
of mankind than they do to any particular
form of religion. Emotional people want a
method or worship to fit their Inclinations.
Those of a nature easily awed by ceremony
and form seek Divine power in churches
that adopt that form ot worship. Others
of a more phlegmatic temperament prefer
xeligion without embellishment, and It
will be found by going over the category
or churches that each provides a form of
worship that suits tbe temperament of
its membership.
As people broaden tbeJr views and learn
to look upon the world as a place where
every one, sood, bad and indifferent, is
entitled to equal opportunities, there will
be fewer blguU and less controversy be
tween churches. Each form nf religion,
from the crudest to that ot enlightened
dcvotcc3, has but one object, one purpose
In view to make the world better and to
prciiare the way to foture life. That
being true, it Is almost a wonder that
churches do not fraternize and render
each other more effective mutual assist
ance in reclaiming mankind. lint we are
all human, and it won't do to grumble
with the example furnished by the Min
neapolis Episcopal convention before ns
as an object lesson.
Whcn wise people sit in tlie clouds and
predict that the Corbett-Fjtzsimmons fight
Is off so far as a contest in this country
Is concerned, their minds are too far sky
ward to riciiU that Jodge Buck Kllgoreis
in existence. The unlearned judge who
presides over a legal throne and represents
the administration in the Indian Terr.tory
says there is nothing Jhi bis bailiwick to
bind ertlieirfighting, and doubtlesshe would
adjourn court to t.ec which of the "tarnal
cusses was the best feller."
Charges have been placed on file in the
Attorney General's office that Judge Buck
is Illiterate, does not -understand the law,
and is showing partiality in parceling out
the good things of his court. This unex
pected proceeding will not disturb the
Tresident. The Congressional Directory
shows Uiat Judge Buck was never nearer
Blackstonc than the office of a justice of
the peace, therafore Ids appointment was
not nude ignorantly. It was not because
Judge Buck knew the law that he was ap
pointed, but for the. reason that he -was
acquainted with those who knew Tresident
TEe Indian Territory people might as
wen make up their minds to settle llieir
disputes in some other than a legal way
if they are not satisfied with Judge Buck,
Tor he is there to stay. Tresident Cleve
land nei er reconsiders an appointment, no
matter Low objectionable, and law or no
law, partiality or no rartiality, the pro
scenium of Judge Buck's trousers arc as
firmly fli.ed to his judicial bench as it they
wire fastened with glue.
"Without great ado, just as If It were a
matter nf coarse, two women have entered
the Catholic University as students, and
as students of philosophy at that. It has
been done so quietly that its great signifi
cance may bo unappreciated.
There Is. in fact, a double significance
ettached to this event. On tho one hand,
It Is much that the gates of one ot the
great universities of the United Stacts are
not closed to women; on the other, proof is
given that women are ready to avail thera
scIvqs of the best opportunities afforded
them for diving into the depths ot n scien
tific education.
These ladies have simply taken Up the
study of Greek and its kindred branches.
Others will come, no dojbt,?vho will want
to embrace other branches. Each and all
will be welcome, it they have the necessary
qualifications for admittance and tho will
to persevere to the cud.
There has been a great deal of talk
about the coeducation of the sexes. It
has liecn advocated and denounced with
equal vigor. Yet it has come to pass, and
is steadily expanding of its own momentum,
and its lecognltlon and adoption by so
conservative an organization as the Cath
olic church will unquestionably cstabUsh
it more firmly. The world is slowly, per
haps, but surely demolishing the barriers
erected by antiquated prejudice, and woman
is entering upon the broad highway of
equal chances sn Ion; occupied exclusively
by the so called stronger 6ex.
That she will make good use of nil that
is offered ber none need doubt.
The address delivered by Dr. W. W.
Johneton, on the occasion ot the opening of
the medical dopartment of Columbian Unl-.
versity, a few cM-nlngs ago, was more than
momentarily interesting iu that it dealt in
a masterly manner with set eral sociological
questions. The suggestions there thrown
out are the more worthy ot consideration as
coming from so eminent n practitioner and
student ot social conditions.
Of prime importance are Dr. Johnston's
remurla respecting prevalent methods or
education, which arc severely condemned
as retarding and Injuring both the phjsical
and mental development of the pupils. He
describes t h lssj Mem epig rammatlcally w hen
lie rays luatlfnwardsa prize topathological
precocity," thatifliinulate3theyoulliotan
unhealthy imagination" und requires all,
without distinction, "to submit to the same
imariable law of supply and demand."
He dcsjiairs ot improvement "until work
beurs some relation to health and strength,
until health comes first and learning after."
It Is a matter well worth profound in
quirj and consideration, how f our school
methods are responsible for the constantly
increasing percentage of insanity among
our people, and Tor the no less ierccptlble
iucrease of affection of the visual and
digestive organs. All these Ills can be
traced to three conditions: The unhy.
glculc construction of our school buildings,
the insufficiency ot systematic I'M sical ex
ercise, and the Irrational methods of teach
ing, which Litter Is ptrhaps more correctly
described as pumping more or less valuable
facts into the memory of the learner.
Dr. Johnston deplore, as well he may, the
sending of children to school at the early age
of five or six jears. No child ought to be
put into a fchool room until it is a,l least"
eight years old, and then, so far as ios
tible, the strain pit upoaiu mtn'.al ;iowers
ought to bear some proportion to its physical
de elopnieut. Thechlld ought to be trained
to think indeiea leiitly, not to be a mere
memorizing and reciting machine, nnd school
buildings and each school room in llna
should be constructe 1 with an eye single to
the health of the children.
When all ILef cesscntialshall b pro vldctl,
the evilsof which I)r. Johitonaudsomany
others Justly complain, will have a chance
to be abated.
One of the most cheering reflections In
connection with the action of tho Texas
legislature is that It furnishes gratifying
proof of the growthof a sentiment hostileto
to such exhibitions of brute strength as
are furnished In the prize ring. The
Iieople or the United States share with those
of England the unenviable notoriety of still
countenancing such performances. No
other country encourages, if it permits
them. It is doubtful It the bull righting of
Spal n, Mexico and some of t h South Amer
ican countries Is as shockingly brutal as
this batlernig of two human beings.
Texas has set all her sister States a good
cxa mple. Each and c cry one ought to piss
a law as drastic as the one the Lone Star
Stato has Just enacted. If prize righting
is everywhere made a felony and the prin
cipals are punishable by imprisonment of
from two to five years the slugger
will probably come to the conclusion that
his occupation is gone andwill turn his
attention to breaking stones, digging
trendies, carrying hods or some such
honorable and useful means of earning his
daily bread.
The Old Bay State never does thiegs by
halves. The platform adopted by the Dcm
ocrats in convention at Worcester yes
terday accomplished in the beginning
the herculean tak of indorsing President
Cleveland; it declared for Jcffcrsonlan
Democracy, for sound money, for tariff
reform, for home rnlefor cities, for good
turnpike roads, for government loans to
protect the gold reserve, for the Monroe
doctrine (which was a left handed blow
at the President), and in favor of the broad
est religious tolerance as ojpoKed to the
spirit and teachings of an organization
known as the American Protective Asso
ciation. These arc the most comprehensive prin
ciples yet adopted by State parties appeal
ing to their electors for support this year,
but added to these exalted declarations,
and as a flttlrg statue for such a pedestal,
cx-Congrcssman George Frederick Will
lams was nominated for Governor.
In Congress, youthful and ambitious,
trenching slightly, perhaps, upon ground
only fit for the feet of angels, Mr. Williams
attempted to Terorm pretty nearly every
thing In sight. He assumed an Infallibil
ity that carried one's imagination liack-to
palmy Delphic days, when oracles instead
of bloomers were the fad.
One thing Hr. Williams could never re
form was the lion. Joseph Henry Walker,
a citizen of Uic city where the convention
was held yesterday. The delates between
Williams and Walker In Congress are im
mortal. They were the star spectacles
ot Williams' brief tenure. But Mr. Walker
obstinately refused to be reconstructed,
and it may be expected that he will be
heard from In the most conspicuous manner
during the campaign about to open, and
that he will exercise his really remarkable
shooting skill upon Mr. Williams, who
must play the part of bulls-cyc to the Demo
cratic target.
The release of Major Armes by habeas
corpus proceedings will amount to nothing
more than an effective way to bavehlm dis
charged from confinement pending trial
by court martial. Charges have been pre
ferred against him by order of theSccrelary
of War, and there is little doubt that he
will bo cashiered and dismissed from the
army, perbaro without opportunity to ex
plain tiiu reason, If he has any, why the
offending letter was written to Gen. Scho
field. Major Armcs can only bo reinstated
by act ot Congress, and as he has already
received similar favors from that body bit
case will have to bo strong to succeed a
third time.
As a matter ot Justice, Major Amies
should bo permitted to make his best
possible defenso beforo tho court martial.
The simple fact of bis having written the
letter may bo sufficient to secure bis dis
missal, but Inasmuch as he claims persecu
tion, and says ho can prove It, that oppor
tunity should bo given, even It it affects
the reputation of as high and Influential
an officer as Gen. Echoficld.
Tho accusation ot Major Armes may be
without foundation. His charge of per
secution may bo tho Imaginings ot an
erratic mind, as has been alleged; but
these facts should be developed at tlfc trial,
it they arc true, and not allowed to
slumbcras Inanimate allegations which laLk
susbtautlal proof.
No development of the court martial can
injuro Gen. Silu.fk'ld If lie Is Innocent
of the charge made by Major Armes, and
if be Is guilty it would be on irreparable
act ot injustice to shield him.

.Editor Times: The projected repairs on
the Fciin&lvanla nenue bridge over Bock
Creek are now in progress. That the
repairing had become a necessity the driv
ing and travelling public will bear evi
dence 4o. But to the casual observer
the work might have been pushed with
more vigor than it is being done. With
eight men at work, where twenty might
have been employed, a -work that tlie com
pletion of which would not necessitate
over Ilftcen or twenty days, will require
forty, or perhaps sixty days. As the
taxpayers will hae to bear tlie burden
of repairs, it is only fair and Just that
their interests lie considered.
If whatever is worth doing is worth doing
well and quickly, then the District authori
ties may very well and justly push this
work to completion and save the taxpayers
and travelling public the Inconvenience
under which they are liable lo labor for
months hence. TRAVELLER.

Murm ot Appluus,-
Tbe exercise's preparatory to tbe open
ing of the thirty fifth annual terelnu of
the law department of Columbian College
took place last evening. In the lecture room
of that luitilutk.ii, in the presence of an
Immense audience, many of whom were
The exercises were conducted by Presi
dent B. L. Whitman, who, in a brier
speech, outlined what was expected of
the students during the coming tension.
Iu coucluvJon, he told his hearers ir they
do not rife lo the top ot the ladder at
once not to be discouraged, for it wat
not the good rorluue of every law student
to make a Biatktone, Coke or Harlan.
The mention of Justice Harlan's name
called forth tremendous applautc, to
which was added the college yell. When
the applause ce-oscd, some uckeci, "What's
tbe matter with Whitman?" and Uic whole
audience answered, "He's all right,"
amid more dcuiemug applause.
on the stage witu Prciiacut Whitman
Tvcre Ju'tiies Harlan and Brewer, of tbe
United States Supreme Court, Justice Cox
and Bradley ot the District Court, Mr.
t. G. Johnson, professor or common law
anil Judge of the moot court; M r. U. E.
Davis, lecturer ou the history of law,
and Mr Melville Church, profesior ot
patent law and practice in patent cases.
Judge Cox said that since lie was chosen
dean, he had become the "old man' or
the college, and It was bis duty to see that
the others, the young men, pointing to
Justices Hurlau and Brewer, instructed,
Ibem correctly. He said that he had no
ticed in the newspapers that Justice Har
lan, IcKldcs attending to his duties, on the
bench, also found time to lecture at the
Columbian Law School, teach a Sunday
school class, and dispense hospitality in
real old Kentucky style. This, he said,
knowing the judge's ability, was not sur
prising, but what did astound hitu was
the statement also made In the news
papers that he was a possible candidate
for the Presidency ol-the UniU-d States.
This, he thought, was iving too far, and
doped the bojs would aid biro iu keeping
the Judge out or any such scrub race.
He also hoped that Justice Bradley, who
was to be Instructor In criminal practice,
would not make any mistake and let bis
Instruction be in criminal practices.
Justice Harlan, who came next, was
given an ovation. He said he knew the
students were anxious to get to their
studies, so he would not detain them with
a speech. Alter making bis announcements
he said he would be s'ad to see all or any
it them at his home, his office or wherever
tbey chanced to civet.
Justice Brewer followed with a brief
speech, in which he paid a hicli tribute
to the new president, Mr. Whitman, and
the Institution.
Mesrs. W. J. Johnson, H. E. Davis, and
Melville Church followed, each making tlie
announcements for their individual
It is understood that during- the session
