TUESDAY, OCTOBER It, 1881, Onk Issue promises happily to bo taken out of Now York politics by the combined action of the two parties, and that Is the ques tion of free canals. The Republican Con vention last week adopted a resolution favor ing tho submission of a constitutional amend ment removing all lolls, ami tho Democratic Convention it is well understood wilt adont a similar resolution today. Tho anomalous condition of tho transportation interests this season would have prevented tho full benefit being realised from tho canals, oven If they had been free; but It is not probable that an other such season will 1m known formally years. Free canals when thoy do como will bo clearly recognized ns a boon. Thb election of n Democratic President of tho United Slates Senate by an accidental majority is to he put down to tho nccountof Mr. Conkhng, who In ills supremo vanity abandoned the Semite, taking with him the man Plait. Ih this way ho loft tho Senate with n Democratic majority, and left it in the control of a party determined to use their power in n purely partisan spirit. It is true that Uio people of Now York promptly resented mul punished Conkllng's betrayal of his trust, but tho consequences of that betrayal survive his disgrace, lie has delivered the Senate over to tho Democrats, and a Bourbon Democrat now presides over that body.

Tho result can scarcely bo considered in doubt, ns tho Kopubllcans have carried tho State uniformly for a quarter of a century, and had ?j,OOO plurality in 1870 and 78,000 in the Presidential election. Tho Hon. James F. Wilson Is understood to havo scoured a majority of tho candidates for tho Legis lature to support his election to tho United States Sonata. Ws aro gJad to know from his own Ups (hat Uio Hon. Samuel J. Tllden is ono of tho most maligned and misunderstood politicians in the country. Ho bus never been In Uio habit Of Interfering with noml nations In Ids own party. His practice, "when he was at the head of tho party organization, was nut to become a partisan of any pailieuiarcamlidate, but to coniine himself to such suggestions as might seem fit and useful during tho delib erations of tho convention." In other words, ho merely "advised" Ids friends into office and Ida enemies out. Mr. Tllden, of course, scorn's the suggestion that ho has over used money actively in political campaigns; but he docs offer the Information that ho wilt not be a candidate for Governor again next year, "even if he flattered himself that lie could receive a unanimous vole of Uio i>coplu." Mr. Tllden does hut so Haller himself; but lits relentless war an Kelly mid Tammany Hall Indicates plainly enough Hint In his Judgment, If ho cun exterminate that social and political pest, ho niuyuguln bo the Demo crat lo candidate for the Presidency of Uie United States. It Is believed that the Cabinet cimnges con templated by Uio now President will leavoMr. Itobert Lincoln In undisturbed possession of the War Department. Tho people of Illinois will be very much gnUllied ihoreat, and the re tentlonot Mr. Lincoln will be approved by tho country generally. (Some excellent reasons are given why President Arthur will bo In clined to keep Mr.-Lincoln where he Is. Hu did not seek the position; he was invited to lake it without any solicitation from Mr. Lincoln's friends; lie gave up a lucrative imd increasing law practice to lake Uie place, tmdlnmore limn one respect made inipor* Inul sacrifices in order lo go into the Cabinet. All these statements are true, and may prop erly Influence President Arthur not to iicu-pi Mr. Lincoln's resignation, Put ninny of tho same circumstances at tended tnn appointment of tho other members of Mr. (bulldd'a Cabinet. Wo do nnt unow Hint any one of the gentlemen Rejected by President Garfield was nn nctlvo competitor for a Cabinet position, and all of them made sacrifices nearly as event ns those made by Mr. Lincoln In order to accept Oio places tendered to them. Messrs. Blaine, Wliulom, nml Kirkwood were United States Senators, amt two of these gentlemen cer tainly had something like permanent tenure of their seats In the Senate. Mr. MaeVcngh gave up a large law practice, nml had never mnde a business of politics. Mr. dailies was Postmaster of tho City of New York, nml was selected for Postmaster-General ns nn expert. Mr. Hunt hnd a life position ns Judge of tho Court of Claims. It Is proper Hint President Arthur should take account of the conditions under which Mr. Lincoln accepted a place In the Cabinet n few months ago, hut it would seem ns though ho should ■ B 1.r.0 , .1.00 . su.uo likewise consider similar conditions in (he rase of tho other members of Garfield’s Cab inet. In view of tho fuel that alt have con ducted themselves In n manner to win ap plause from tho country. The New York Republicans had a hard fight to get rid of an obnoxious faction nml still maintain harmony in tho ranks. Dm- Ing tho progress of this struggle they re- N celvcil a great deal of ostentatious sympathy from Uio Democrats. Now tho Democrats have a considerably harder light on hand of a similar nature. They require nil Uio sym pathy which good-natured opponents can give them. John Kelly Is a good deal more troublesome to the Democrats than Conkllng was to tho Republicans. lie Is an Ugly cus tomer. If ho stays he proposes to dictate. If he Is forced to go ho proposes to keep up the light, lie claims that ho controls' r»0,000 voters. Ills Independent canvass for Gov ernor at the time Robinson, the regular Dem ocratic candidate, was defeated proved that htselahn was notaUogctlieranldloboast. The New York Times puts tho caso In a nutshell In the following sentence: “Kelly will de feat tho party unless he Is allowed to hnvo his own way; If ho Is allowed to have his own way ho will wreck the party beyond a peradvcnturc.” It looks ns though tho Dcm- ocratlc managers will bo ttblc to shove Kelly aside, but If they do ho will not spare any effort to wreak his revenge. Tiißntlcmpt to makoan International ques tion out of the claim to tho possession of Wnuigel Land may cause some innocent amusement, but wo cannot believe that It will ever como to anything. So far ns wo have been able to discover, Wrangel Land— suggestive mid appropriate title—ls situated in tho Arctic Circle. It Is colder, .more Inaccessible and absolutely worthless than Alaska. About once lu twenty years tho hardy navigator can, by dint of much suffer ing amt perseverance, roach Wrangel Land, mid ho is in good luck If hccnngetbnclcngaln the same season, or at at). If wo may bo pardoned the expression, the "land” in Wrangel Land U nil snow and ice; tho prod ucts would not support a Digger Indian, and tho whole country if put up at public unc tion for commercial uses among private in dividuals would not fetch ss—mi upset price. The United States and Canada are not going to fly at each other's throats an account of tilts delcctnblo country. Canada may have It and welcome. Tho only stipula tion that tho United Slates wilt care to make Is, that under no circumstances and at no time shall Canada over demand that Wmngel Land bo taken off her hands by her more powerful neighbor.

It scorns to be generally believed that President Arthur will make a radical, if not a complete, change in the Into President Garfield's Cabinet.' Among tho members who nro pretty certain to go is Mr. Kirkwood, Secretary of tho Interior. One reason why it is assumed by Washington politicians that President Arthur will dispense with Mr. KirkwouiPa services, In case there shall bo any ulmngo, is because Mr. Kirkwood Is a Western man, and tho President, who Is essentially an Kustern man, Is not acquainted with him, nor familiar with tho grunt lie publican constituency in lowa which he represents. Gen. Garlleid was aware of tho prominent claims which lowa hud to a Cabinet position, and was bound to recog nize them. Thu choice lay between Messrs. Allison, Wilson, and Kirkwood. Allison declined the Treasury portfolio, and when Kirkwood's name was sent to the Senate as Secretary of tho interior it was very generally concluded that ho was selected because Mr. Allison had declined. Mr. Kirkwood's administration of Uio Interior Department, however, has demonstrated that the choice was fortunate without special reference to the Stale from which ha hailed. It was universally acknowledged from tho lirst tlrnt lie was u man of sterling probity, but It was doubted whether ho had tho ex perience and natural efficiency to mako a successful head of tho Interior Department, which Is one of tho most diverse and exact ing branches of tho Executive Government. Uut Mr. Kirkwood has amply continued tho wisdom of President Qarfleld’s choice. Ho has managed the affairs of Ids department with excellent common sense, ami without any display of " fuss and feathers." Ho has shown special discretion in ids treatment of tho Indian affairs, and has disposed of every Individual complication that came before him upon Its merits, without previous prelu dice or set notions. Mr. Kirkwood has a record us a Cabinet officer of which ids con stituents may well bo proud, and if he shall go out of the Cabinet It \\ ill bo (or no other reason than to make room for somebody who THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: TUESDAY OCTOBER 11, £BBI— I TWELVE RAGES Is personally, politically, or geographically more desirable to the new President. Tim country will hope that his position may ho lllled with oiuinl onieicncy. Tub action of Senator David Davis In vot ing with the Republicans yesterday In favor of admitting the Republican Somdors-clocl before proceeding to tho election of n Presi dent pro tcm. will meet with the approval of nil fair-minded men, whether they he Repub licans or Democrats. It was based upon tho broad ground that the Republicans, who elected tho President less than a year ago, lire justly entitled to the Presidential succes sion, which Is vested by law In tho President of the Senate. The Democrntle partisan ma jority, in tho absence of Hio three Senators elcct, prevailed, and Mr. Bayard was elected President pro fcm. It Is now said that Sen ator Davis will not vote with tho Re publicans to reverse! this action after tho Republican Senutors-eleet shall have been admitted nml tho Senate shall have a full mombcrshlp. Wo are not disposed to credit this statement, because Judge Davis will ho illogical in taking such a position. If ho believes that tho Republic ans aro entitled to hold the Presidential suc cession, then tho accidental election of a Democrat by reason of temporary vacancies on tho Republican side ought not to deter him from voting to do Justice to the Repub licans. The Senate is a permanent body. Tho President pro (cm. Is never elected for any fixed term. It is in order at all times to proceed to a now election by more resolution. Jt Is no nlfroni to tho presiding nlllccr to take Hits course. Had Messrs. Miller, Lnpham, amt Aldrich been permitted to take tho seats to which they were entitled be foro the election of a President pro tcm. a Republican Senator would havubeen chosen with tho aid of Judge Davis’ vole. There is nothing personal In the matter. It Is a question of parly Justine, Believing, ns Judge Davis does, that the Republicans aro entitled to tho position because It Involves the Presidential succession, wo do not sco how Judge Davis can refuse to vote for a Re publican, even after Bayard’s selection, if a resolution to elect n Republican President pro (cm. shall be ottered. If tho Prohibitionists of Wisconsin, who arc making a good deal of fuss just now, and nro threatening to defeat tho Republican ticket In November If possible, are honestly In favor of tho coercive legislation they pro* tend why do they not endeavor to obtain U Inn common-sense ami practical manner? Tho excuse they offer for placing a ticket for State officers in the Held is, that they could notobtulu suitable recognition at tho hands of tho last Republican Legislature, or tho last Republican State Conven tion, and that they nro determined to belli defeat Gen. Rush and his Republican colleagues ns a means of punishing that party. A inoro illogical course was never taken by a political party. If Mr. Kanouao ami tho whole temperance ticket Is elected, neither ho nor they would have tho least power over tho 'liquor traffic, and the tem perance people then as now would have to rely on the Legislature for tho passage of any law upon that subject. Tho amendment to tho Stale Constitution that they are now clamoring for, to absolutely prohibit tho manufacture and sale of all intoxicating beverages within tho limits of tho State, must be passed by two successive Legisla tures before It Is submitted to a vote, and does not need the consent of tho Governor at alt. If they can get control of Dio Legisla ture, they can pass any taw on tho subject they please, however absurd and impractica ble It may be, and no Governor, unless ho bo a Democrat, would dare stand in the way of giving It a lair trial. The present movement in favor of a State ticket, to the utter neglect of putting forth a serious effort to secure tho Legislature, through which all aid lu this lino-must eventually come, stamps It ns one of characteristic folly, If not petty revenge, which might to bo frowned upon by tho peo ple of the State. It will be remembered that tho passage of the “Graham law" in ls7*i, wnlch was thought to be in tho Interest of temperance reform, had tho effect to put the Democratic party in power for four years, and the presoht movement is simply a side-show for the Democratic party. Thu Wis consin Prohibitionists—like Mr. Beecher's famous dog—are barking at the wrong hole. They need a majority in both branches of tho Legislature and n public sentiment that will support It, and not a Governor who has no power to enact laws. Frank C. Daugherty. Alonzo P. Winslow. DB. THOMAS AND THE METHODIST If any havo. held tho opinion, and doubt less many have, Hint Dr. Thomas Is IndllTcr cut to tliu ontenmo nf Uio heresy prosech- Uon nf which ho is tho subject, his address to tho council of fifteen will (end greatly to shake, if not wholly overthrow, that opin ion. Tho address is replete with evidences of tho reverend and learned gontlenmn'H de votion to tho Methodist Church Itself, and to its cardinal doctrines ns iio understands them. Nor will It socm so clear after a dis passionate perusal of tho address that tho Doctor is oat of accord with any funda mental article ot faith of the Church in which ho Ims so long officiated. Those who have assumed Use existence of a clear tech nical case against Dr. Thomas will tlnd In his address grounds for serious reduction ns to tho Justice ot tho prosecution, It hot for an entire reformation and reversal of their Judgment. Dr. Thomas states tho Issue to bo this: "Will tho Methodist Church tolerate tho doctrines 1 tench, and Ims It room for tho work 1 urn trying to do? Or will it pro nounce those teachings so unsound and tills work so unsafe as to expel me?" If tho Methodist Church refuses to toler&to Dr. Thomas' doctrine of tho Inspiration of tho Scriptures it must declare In favor of tho "verbal theory* k that tho Now Testament contains “ tho precise language of Christ," and that "all parts of the slxty-slx books In (he Ulblu are equally inspired, and of equal authority and value." For Dr. Thomas states that lie believes " that the men who wrote the Scriptures woro inspired, and that those Scriptures contain, in substance, tho word of God,” that" they contain all tilings necessary to salvation," and " Hint the dual doctrines of tho Dlblo concerning (lod and righteousness are, and must bo, dual to hu man thought and conduct, and can never bo superseded." If the Methodist Church refuses to tolerate Dr, Thomas' doctrine of tho atonement It must declare In favor of " tho strictly penal Idea of a literal Imputation of sin to Christ," that " Christ was punished ns guilty," that " one part of (lod sinned against and was punished by another part of Cod. 1 ' Fur 'Dr. Thomas declares that he believes that" (lod hud Christ were ono In thu atonement, that the whole Divine nature was embarked in Uie mission of saving tho world," and his theory presents God " In tho vlcurlousness of love suffering over tho world, being propiti ated by Ills own sufferings, satisfying there by the sense of Ills own lusticc." If tho Methodist Church refuses to tolerate Dr. Thomas' doctrine of future punishment It must declare in favor of " a literal Hell, a lake of tire, in which the souls and bodies ot men and women shall bo tormented forever." For Dr. Thomas declares that lie " does not doubt tho fact of luturo punishment for those who die in their sins,” that ho “be lieves the law Hint sin must bring siHTerlng to Hie sinner will abide forever,*’ that lie “lias no possible doubt of tho separation of good and had, of loss mid mifferlng to (hose who die In sin.” But “whal future punish ment will be, nr how long, orwlthwhul re sult,” he declares that “he knows not." In deed, he admits that he hos felt and expressed a hope that “ lost sun Is may come Into a bet ter life in Uio future.” It will bo observed that the distinction be- tween what Dr. Thomas actually believes and what Ids prosecutors declare thn doc trine of the Church to he nu the sub ject of tne Inspiration of thn Scriptures and tho atonement Is very nice—far too nice to make any deep Impression on thn common mind; tit, indeed, only to exercise tho thought and tax tho Ingenuity of tech- nical Intellects. But In neither ease Is It a distinction without a difference. That tho Scriptures are, hi substance, Inspired, us Dr. Thomas maintains, is mure easy of hetlef to tho common mind than that they aro “ ver bally ” Inspired. So of Uin atonement. It Is easier (o comprehend that God may have suf fered for mankind than that Christ, being part of God, could have sinned. In both eases tho theory of Dr. Thomas Is more ra tional, and therefore more comprehensible, Hum that of the Church prosecutors. It fid lows, If these differences are non-essentials ns it seems to tho layman Uioy must be, that In convicting Dr. Thomas of heresy on these points the Church will take upon itself nu, unnecessary burden—tho burden of nn al most hnpossible clear exposition of Us creed. The difference between Dr. Thomas and his prosecutors which approaches most near ly to tho Insurmountable Is that on Uio sub ject of future punishment. Clearly Dr. Thomas cannot enforce tho Church theory of the everlasting punishment of tho wicked n lids life, lie docs not know that tho vicked will not suffer forever, but ho hopes they will have an opportunity to repent after death, and hopes they will repent. lie docs nut bellovo in a literal Hell, a lako of llro in which tho bodies and souls of men will burn. Ho believes that Heaven or Hell aro conditions or states of mind and spirit that wo carry over from tills world. Docs tho Methodist Church creed tench tho doctrine of a literal Hell and the everlasting punishment therein of those who die in sin? Dainty, In the opinion of Dr. Thomas, It does not; for lie clings to the Church (otmdously and insists that tic be lieves and preaches its creed. On this point the caso of Dr, Thomas must Inevitably be come a lending one. Thu decision of It must dcilnn what, in the opinion of ttio high est authority In tho Methodist Church, licit Is, and whether or not It is proper for a clei gyman of that denomination to entertain and express “ a hope that lost souls may como nto a better life in the future.” The prosecutors of Dr. Thomas arc gather- ng tho materials for history, but only the highest tribunal can make those materials up into the Indestructible web of actual church history. Dr. Thomas’ address has relieved tho case of all pettiness. Ju the face of that address, sternly logical, and yet humble, almost pathetic, in its expressions of devotion to tho Church, no man will venture to doubt its author’s sincere, earnest desire to perpetuate Ids relations with It—not on personal grounds, but on tho ground of de votion to tho Church and the enuso which it represents.' THE LIBRARY BUILDING OF THE FUTDRi; The Hoard of Directors of the Public Li brary have done well In not acting hastily upon the report ot tho committee to whom was referred tho’ttiattor of u future library building and in taking tlmu to consider tho matter. The fate of tho memorial proposi tion, which lias died of Inanition, was a sutli clout warning, especially ns tho library ques tion was Involved fn (ho memorial. The memorial was to have been erected by a general popular subscrlullon, and It was assumed that the moment it was announced every one, man, woman, and child, would rush into it, and Hint a demonstration on tho anniversary of tho lire would give an im pulse to the movement that would carry it on to success. The sentiment was all well enough, and tho proposition was alt well enough and very glittering on tho sur face; but, without discussing the causes of the failure, the thing didn’t work. People don’t seem to rare anything about tho tire, and tho further away they got from it tho less disposed they are to remember It, as Is tho case lu all oilier calamities. They are not pleasant things to remember or celebrate. The anniver sary went by and no one took heed of It except Tun Chicago TmnuNc, which supplied, ns U always docs, tho great popuinr,inomorial demand with Us co lossal edition devoted to tho ten years’ growth of tho city, and that was all tho celebration tho people wanted. Having failed to do any thing in cooperation with tho memorial movement, the Library Committee now pro pose to go alone, ami have suggested to tho board that contributions bo solicited, that an address bo issued to the people sotting forth tho objects to bo attained, that tho wards of tho city bo canvassed by agents, that subucrlpUon'boxcs bo opened In public places, etc., etc. Mr. Loowcnthul, In bis comment upon tho report, very sensibly said that it was putting tho cart before the horse, and that people would not give money without llrst knowing what tho building was going to bo like, and where It was going to bo located. Mr. Loowunthat might have gone still further and been cor rect If he had taken tho position that tho horse will never bo harnessed to tho cart, either before Uor behind It. At ( tho same time, It Is all well enough to go ahead with tho subscription, for whatever they procure will be so much lu, but if the board count upon any largo sum, or fancy that tho whole public Is going to enthusiastically rally round the contribution-boxes, they will llnd themselves mistaken. They may put u box on every building and a canvasser In every neighborhood, but boxes and canvassers will not erect tho library building. There are but two ways ot putting up such a building: one of them by tho exercise of faith, and Uie other upon sound and practical business principles. Thu llrst, or tho faith plan, Is by a legacy. On tho remote con tingency that some wealthy nmu should dlo and leave sulllelent to build it wo might Imvo a library building—provided his heirs did not break tho will. Hut this plan In volves a degree of faith which would move all the mountains in Uio world, tho world Itself, and all the planetary systems. Tho oilier plan Is the only practical one, and that Is, for the Library Hoard to persuade the Council to levy a special tux, say of 9000,000, distributed over a period ot three years, tho tax to bo paid by the whole people pro ruta In proportion to tho general tax levy, and tho sum to be devoted to tho building. This would amount to 9100.000 per annum, a sum bo small Dial it would not be* felt oy any body, In this way the widow would pay her mlto and tho millionaires their piles. The public-Hplrlled man would have the con sciousness of doing what ho wants to and Uio stingy man of doing what ho ought to do, The whole people would have an Inter est in the building, a pride In U, and a voice in Us administration. Such a building, placed upon a central site, like the old City llall lot, for instance, would not only bo an ornament ot which citizens might be proud, CHURCH. but tho sum would bo sufllclent to put up tho handsomest library Ktrneiure In the country, and one that would last a century. The Li brary Board may devise nil other kinds of plans and experiment to their hearts* con tent, hut this Is the plan to which they will have to come at last. OUITEAU AND HIB COUNSEL. (f counsel for (iulteau In aid of his hrnlhcr-ln-law Is to ho brought Into the caso “It were well [for Gußcnu] ’twero done quickly.” It Is quite plain that Mr. Hcovilto (s not skilled In tho arts of criminal prac tice. In allowing (iulteau to talk there Is great danger. The purpose of Mr. Scovifio is to show to the public that Ids brother-in law Is era7.y. Unsays ho, “My Idea,” he remarks, “ In publishing tho statements Is to let tho people see and Judge for themselves as (o the condition at Uultoau.” But this Is not Mr. Seovlße’s “Idea” after nft; It Is Gultenn's idea. In answer to n question Mr. Seovßle says: “lie (Gidlennj Is very ob stinate, and I have to yield to him when he requests mo to do anything fn his ease. It Is useless to attempt (o nrgno with him, for ho makes uplds mind loathing and slicks to tt.” It should bo observed that to “make ip” one’s mind is a quality of sanity. Gußenu Is preparing Ids own case, mid Ids hrothcr-tn-law is a mere assistant, and Hie two gentlemen tire opening up Gultenu’s caso before the public—manufacturing pub lic opinion. As (ho pica Is to be insanity, of course whatever Guttenu puts forth lu the public, through Scovßlo, Is Intended fo sup port the plea. But It is very diflicidt to maintain an assumed character In full pub lic view, ns Uidtenii wIR perhaps llmi to Ids cost. Talk is a two-edged sword. Talk In tended to convoy nn Impression of insanity may convoy directly the opposit Impression. As a matter of fact, (Ids is the ease with Gidlcau’s latest communlcaUon to tho pub lic. Says Mr. Scovlßo to a correspondent: You remember that It has been staled that tho day nr the shoot tog, n few minutes bolero tho not was committed, Uulloim handed a package to tho mows agent nt tho doput and requested him to keep U»i few minutes. After his arrest tho package wnstnken possession of by District- Attorney Corkhlll. In sneaking to uuitemi about tt be said ho remembered perfectly well whnt ibopackagc contained, and nt hla dictation I wrote tho following, which bo assured me was correct. Then follows tho reproduction of tho al leged proclamation “To tho American peo ple, 0 which oultran assures his amanuensis “Iscorrect.” Now, If a comparison of tho two papers shows that it Is correct—that tho two are even In substance tho same—lt will tend to prove, not tho insanity of tiio author, but Ids sanity. A mind overthrown, de ranged, docs not act logically; tidies from the subject, reels anil staggers, so to speak, like a drunken man. In tho play Shakspearo illustrates this point In tho Interview between Hamlet and tho Qurcn. When accused ot being crazy, Hamlet says: It Is not mildness That I have tutor'd: bring mo to the teat. Anil I tho manor will reword; which madness Would gambol from. If Gulleau Ims reworded Ids murderous proclamation of nearly four months ago, ho has given to tho prosecution an Important piece ot testimony—n piece ot testimony which will go far to put tho hang man’s rope round Ids neck. Wo venture to say that no caso will ho found In tho tho annuls of criminal trials of an Insunu person capable of rewording n speech, or rc wrhimra paper, of several months’ previous date. To do such a thing the mind must net temperately, clearly, and logically, and, ns Uamlct says, “madness would gambol from" nil that. Tho fact Is, Gutteau’s mind acts very acutely, lie is quick-witted, but like many u witty person lie reasons ill, and often reaches false conclusions. Ills refusal to allow Ids brothor-ln-luw to try to secure tho services of Hob Ingorsoll In tho trial of his case Is an instance in point. Sir. Scovllle says: While talking with him yesterday 1 suggested tho name of Col. Hobart 0. Ingorsoll ns bis law* yec. Tho prisoner's eyes dropped, and be said. ••That would array tho whole Christian world against me, for they would say that 1 had to got an Inllilol to defend mu. No, bo won't do. 1 want Mr. Merrick." Kura was evidence or quickness of percep- Hon, but Die conclusion Is utterly erroneous. Thu Christian world fuels great contempt for Col. Ingorsoll’s views on the subject of re* Union, but bis honor as n man and bis pa* trlollsm ns a citizen nve not doubted. As n matter of fact there is no lawyer in the conn* try who might enter the case for Ohltcau of whom the Christian world would mure heartily say: “Ho undertakes the defense of tho ussnslu from motives of duty; he be)loves him Insane. 1 ’ Unltenn has wit cnougbi but ho is utterly without ttio sense of moral perception. Ho lias undertaken to live without conscience. He Is a little selfish egotist, ns Napoleon was n great Hellish egotist Napoleon was at the top of the scale; Uultcnu is at the bottom. Napoleon “did all that In him lay to live and thrive without moral principle,” and ho was carried ft prisoner at last to St. Helena; Unl teau did alt that In him lay to live and thrive without moral principle, and he stands at lust at the foot of tho gallows. Napoleon was a great monster; GuUeau is a little monster. As well might Napoleon’s cruelty be cited ns evidence of insanity os Gulieau’s mean ness. A case was lately tried in Faris very simi lar to that of GiiltcAu: I.uciou Mnrrisscba young man nged 23, of con* Bldcrabiu education and roilnomcnt.wns brought before tbo court, charged with tbu murder or M. Hurmler, a railway oltluiat. Murrissat hud no grlovuuuo whaiovur against Hurmler, but uo hud long cherished a U«op*rootud butrud against society. Harly In llfo ho had boon abandoned to his own resources, and, perverted by tbo assidu ous study of sophistical philosophers, ho pro fessed an especial admiration for Lucenulru, whom be seems to have taken altogether for his model. Convinced that society Was rotten ami unjust, and smarting under disappointment mid failure In literature, Morrlsset determined to KJvo free vent to bis perverted Instincts. Ho egan by rubbing his employer, and when ho was detected bo resolved to distinguish himself ns a munlcror. Ho had previously attempted suicide. One day last June bo procured a ro. vulvcr, loaded It. and, walking out In Hio street, bo coolly shot down M. Hurmler. Ho was thou on his why to his master's bouse, Intending to kill hlnuuso. The meiUcul cx)KrU t after n care /ul r/mniimlfun of Vie prisoner, declared him per feeiiy sane, but mohidi/ irl/-jxrv«rinl. lit this case a verdict of guilty was ren dered, anil Morrlsset was condemned to death. UuUomt la “morally self-perverted.” Hu btrovoßo long “tollvo and thrive wlihout moral principle ” that lie came at Inst to bo lluvo that lui could commit murder and os- capo punlahnieut. That's all. Ho know that it was wrung to commit murder, but lio was so "morally sotr-permted"that liu thought n ruction of a political party would bo so much gratified at tho result of ills net that it would not only save him from the just pern nltyof tho iuw, but reward him for the crime. Nor Is there anything now or strange In tho processus of thought by wliloli Ouitonu reached this conclusion. They are common to ull criminals who coolly plan and deliber ately commit capital crimes. They expect, In ouo way or another, to escape the puualty of the Jaw. Hero is where their reasoning is sometimes at fault, but it dues nut follow because of this faulty reasoning that theyare insane, odd therefore irresponsible.

Doctor* There has been considerable excitement In tbo llttlo town of Uorno, near Albany, N. V., recently over n hand-to-hand conlllct which took place uot long ago between tho Kov. John Bchofnor, pastor nt tbo Baptist Church at Borne, nml Dr. Isaac B. Becker, also a resident of tbo town. Tho bad fueling between these gentle* men, both of whom Imvo entered upon tho last half of life's Journey, was caused by a sermon which Mr. Bebofner preached about threo years ago explanatory of the Bumlay*scbool lesson In relation to tbo burial of tbo wicked King Aim?., in which ho remarked that it was one uf tbo unpleasant parts of a minister's ox* pcrlcnco that be preached from fifty-two to 104 sermons in a your against wickedness and worldllncss, and was then expected at tho tuncrul of a man, who In his lifetime had given no heed to this teaching, but bud constantly found fault with church.people, to smooth things over and pronounce antilogy upon tbo deceased man. These remarks excited tho iro of Dr. Booker, who has slnco then been very unfriendly to tbo preacher, and frequently alluded to him ns •' a Tennessee Bar," although why ho was thus geographically particular Is nut explained. After threo years of smoldering tho Intent tires of haired broke out Inst week Tuesday when tbo preacher nnd the doctor met in u grocery store, llotti olnlm tbnt the oilier tmm struck tho first blow, nnd the minister states that tbo doctor said that when he nppeared tho nlr seemed Impregnated with "sulphur, hy pocrisy, and deceit, 1 * at tbo snmo time adding (but tbo domlnlo was a blank Jbtr, and a simi larly adject I ved hypondl. in Ids testimony boforo tho Justice court, where tho matter was Dually brought Tor settle ment, tho dominie admitted that upon bearing those words ho Kavo utterance to sumo vigorous remarks reflecting upon tho ancestry of Dr. Hooker. " Then," continued tbo preacher, "bo kicked mo on tho knee. As ho kicked I grabbed nt him some way and broke tbc package of sul phur which I had lu my.loft hand, and followed by striking him on tho loft cheek with my right hand. Tbo sulphur was scattered nu us both, t saw tbnt be meant business—that bo intended to light—and T tried to. secure* a llrm hold upon him, and grasped him by tho neck, Incidentally catching Ids beard. Ho began to back up, nnd continued until near tbo end of tlio counter, over which I forced him, nnd held him. I told him repeatedly that I did not want to hurt him. I sold I could break every bone In his body, tbnt I could beat him wlthiium Inch nf hid life, but I didn't want to hurt him, only desiring that bo promise to let mo nlono and atop his abuse." At this exciting Juncture Deacon Uriah Davis came Into tho grocery, uml, seeing tho situation uf ttifalrs, was itlsu'moved to wrath ami profan ity, urging tho preaclmr to "hit tho —," all of which (bo good deacon aworo to Jo court, crying copiously us ho did so.
