Returns nie meagre, but enough is
known to show that tlie November elec

Butler is defented in Massachusetts

THE LIQ Von LA WS.
The ruling of Judge Dickinson under
the liquor laws of the State have open
ed the eyes of this community to the
fact that handling liquors, especially
in this community, is a good deal more
dangerous than handling powder. If
we understand his decisions they are to
the effect (1) tliat liquors can neither
be sold nor given away without render
ing parties liable to punishment (2)
that neither a diuggist nor any oneas
else can sell liquor even on a physi
cian's perscription without violating
the law. This nairows the furnishing
of alcoholic liquors down to the physi
cians, who, it seems, may administer
them in their piactice but dare not
Bell them as druggists.
THE ASYLUM MA TTER AG AIX.
The committee appointed by the
Governor to examine the books of Rev.
Kerr, treasurer, secretary and trustee
of the Insane Asylum, at St. Peter,
have made their report. This commit
tee consisted of Public Examiner Knox
Win. Smith, Clerk of Senate Commit
tee W. D. Ilurlbut. Accountant, and
J. II. Randall. They find that the
"errors" in Rev. Ken's favor amount
to about $4,024.76. These aie merely
"clerical errors," Mr. Kerr being of the
clerical profession. If it had been any
body else, we should have insisted that
this was a steal. But being the Rever

whitewashed by the Presbyterian
church, at St. Peter, we roust all con

The Science of lletiltli, in a recent ar
njich*, comments on the fact that the
perihelia of the four great planets, Ju
)pit»r, tJranus, Saturn and Neptune, is
immlffeWt. That is, these four great
idanets will be attheir neatest approach
to the ST,u iin of soon after 1880. This
has lrrft (ooonrrcd before duiing the
Christian-era. In the sixth and sev
centtities three of these planets were
coincMeut in perihelion.
And what of it? Dr. Knapp, who
has examined the question fully, says
that these were the periods of greatest
atmospheric disturbance and pesti
lence during the Christian era, and
that it may be considered a settled
matter that such coincidence in the
nearest approach of these great planets
to the sun, is marked by pestilence and
Rut, it seems, that not only are there
great atmospheric changes, resulting
in increased sickness and death, but
there are also apt to be great political
and religions culminations. Thus all
th3 prophecies of the Bible point to the
period around and about 1880 as the
time for tha fulfillment of the political
and religious predictions, when the
great battle of Armageddon is to be
fought. In this war the greater part
of the human race will be involved
and the old monarchical systems in
state and church will be overthrown.
We have thus a coincidence in which
both Scriptnre and Science combine to
point out the period from say 1880 to
1885 as period of probably the great
est war and the greatest changes in the
natural, the political and the religious
worlds, which our planet has witness

THE PRESS AND THE CLRROY.
At the recent session of the Rock
River Conference of the M. Church,
held at Mt. Carroll, Illinois, Dr. Fowl
er, of New York, accordingto the report
in a Chicago paper, made the following
attack upon the secular press:
That the secular papers were all on
the side of the devil, and that out of
pure hostility to the gospel of Jesus
Christ the secular papers always en
couraged everybody who attackftl that
gospel, with that cheerful iudifference
to facts and logic, that is characteristic
of all savages, whose minds have no
higher exceicise than following a trail
through the wilderness. Dr. Fowler
jumped from this premise to the con
clusion thnt the interest secular papers
took in a minister was an absolute
measure of his orthodoxy. If the sec
ular papers were friendly to a .minister,
they being on.the side of the devil, he
could hardly lie anywhere else. Thus
a trial for heiesy would be simply an
examination of Hies of the newspapers.
If they showed that he had been con
victed of adultety, or menchicity, or em
bezzlement, the only conclusion to be
drawn was that he was an eminently
useful minister of the gospel. But if
the newspapers had spoken highly of
his chaiacter and abilities, it would be
the duty of his brethern to depose him
from the ministiy without further tes
timony. When Dr. Fowler enunciat
ed his simple device for detecting her
esy he wasgieeted with applause of the
most vehement and protracted charac
ter. The preachers clapped their hands
till they ached, and after hiking a rest
clapped again. The eyes of neaily all
were fixed on Dr. Thomas, who had a
front seat. All around the house
could be hcaid such whispered remarks
"Did you notice Thomas?" "How
red Thomas turned!?' "That's the
This sort of talk may have done for
those dark ages when the clergy ruled
the world and kept it iu ignorance in
order that they might maintain their
rule. But it will not do in this age of
newspapers and free thought. This
bigot, Dr. Fowler, no doubt thinks he
can make men believe that what the
newspapers publish against the clergy
is all invented and put forth because
the newspapers are, as he says, "on the
side of the devil." He would like to
make people believe that when the
newspapers show that a clergyman has
been convicted of "adultery, or men
dacity, or embezzlement," the only con
clusion to be drawn is that he is an
eminently useful minister of the gos
Let us apply the rule as laid down
by this bigot, Fowler, whose views
were so heartily applauded by the as
sembled bigots of his own cloth who
''clapped their hands till they ached."
The list given some time since bv a
New York paper of three hundred cler
gymen in the United States who had
been caught and exposed in improper
conduct, mostly with women, were,
according to Fowler's rule, "eminent
ly useful ministers of the gospel."
Clendening, who poisoned his wife in
order that he might get another wo
man, was an "eminently useful minis
ter of the gospel." The reverend
wietch, II. H. Hayden, who is now un
der arrest in Madison, Conn., for pois
oning a young girl whom he had seduc
ed, was an "eminently useful minister
of the gospal." And so on ad iiifinit
Let the secular press accept the
gauge tinown down so often by the
bigoted clergy. We said long ago in
an article that was widely copied that
the newspapers ought to turn and
puncture these clerical wind-bags.
Since tltey are fighting us, let us tight
them b.ick and quit publishing column
after column of their platitudes to the
exclusion of the truth as we find it in
the utterances of Christ aad of the best
men of this and all ages. Let us ex
pose the sins, the ignorance, the stupid
bigotiy of the clergy and the errors
in what they preach. By this means,
we can check fieir power for evil and
help to bring in the true gospel and
the true chinch.
On the other hand, let us continue
to encourage those ministers who ad
vocate propres3 and giowth in religion,
as in everything else, and who aie too
true to believe one thing and preach
another who love the living souls of
men more than the dead creeds of the
churches, and who believe that the
Sabbath, the church, and other institu
tions were made for man and not that
man was made for the Sabbath, the
church and the priesthood.
Our good friend, of the Worthington
ADVANCE has been trying for a long
time to find a creep-hole into the Dem
ocratic camp, feeling that that party
needed an oigan, and lacking the cour
age to come out square-toed. So he at
first embiaced Spiritualism, as an ini
tiatory step, then gradually approached
gieenbackism, as'a second step, and by
next fall, at farthest will be a well-ed
ucated demociat, and can swallow Til
den, Hendricks, and the rest of the
Demociatic crowd. Go in.—Wjndom
Huntington, "with aH thy faults, we
love thee still," or words to that effect.
But you are unfair in your treatment
of most of your brother editors. You
know that if you had the "sand in
you," if you did not "lack the courage,"
you would stand where the ADVANCE
does to-day. We have steadily pro
claimed and made the ADVANCE an in
dependent paper, with all our predelec
tions and antecedents in favor of the
Republican party. Wesaid in our issue
of week before last that as between the
two old parties we very much prefer
red the Republican. But we believe
the financial policy of that grand old
party is wrong and has well-nigh ruin
ed the country. We believe that the
new National party is demanded and
that it is coming into power. The fi
nancial issue is but one of many before
the country. The party which can see
the needs of the people and go before
the country pledged to meet these needs
and give the expected relief, will win.
For over a year the ADVANCE has
seen the hand writing on the wall an
nouncing the doom of the old parties
and lias proclaimed it.
Tlie Reporter shows its lack of an
intelligent understanding of the state
of politics when It calls favoring the
greenback policy a leaning toward* the
Democracy. The majority of theDem
ocrats are hard money men while a ma
jority of the Republicans are doubtless
greenbackers. The Democrats, of
course, are glad to pool their issues
with the Greenbackers in order to beat
the Republican party.

THE MALL FtRK.
The Worthington ADVANCE might
just as well say that T, M. Gruelle, un
til lately one of the partner! of the
Journal, set fire to Miller Hall a few
weeks since, the latter office being lo
cated in the burned building and in
sured for $2,500, It aayt that Gruelle
and JacK Bassett, a boy in his employ,
are more apt to know who fired the
Hall than any one else, they being the
only two male persons seen about the
building on the morning of the fire.
The ADVANCE should be careful, else
it will have a libel suit on its hands.—
St. James Journal.
If that is libel, make the most of it.
If to publish the facts about the burn
ing of Miller Hall, and to express the
opinion thnt the Grand Jury failed be
Ciuse of the absence of the principal
witnesses, T. M. Gruelle and Jack
Bassett, is libel, then we are liable to
such an action. And we have a print
ing office and a farm to sink in defend
ing it, too.
It looks very suspicious that the two
principal witnesses were spirited away
before the Giand Jury met. There
must be men in Worthington who
know the guilty party, and wtio are
bound to see that he escapes.
Gruelle and Bassett were the only
male persons seen about the Hall be
fore the fire occurred they were there
an hour before the alarm was given, as
the Worthington Journal stated in its
own account of the lire the alarm was
sounded in ten minutes after Gruelle
and Bassett left the office, and in ten
minutes more the whole room in the
rear of the Journal office was a moss
Of flames pouring out dense clouds of
smoke which smelled of kerosene.
The wretch who set the fire did it
quickly and effectually and in less than
one hour the largest building in Wor
thington was a heap of smoking ruins.
What we ask, and what every man
in the community should nsk, is that
the guilty party should be ferreted out
and punished. If it should turn out
to be the best friend the ADVANCE
has, let him be punished. If it should
be fouud to be the worst enemy, let
him be punished also. The crime was
a most diabolical and infamous one,
which put the whole town in jeopardy,
and the men in this community who
have expressed satisfaction that the
big "rat-trap," as they call it, was
burned, and who have been as silent as
the grave about bringing the culprit to
justice, are justly open to the sus
picion of knowing something about it
WIIAl is IT.
The Buffalo (N. Y.) Index republish
es from the New Yoi Tribune, an ac
count of some of the phenamena occur
ring in the presence of Mrs. Ottley, at
an aristocratic house in London, and
makes the following editorial remarks.
We have seen more marvelous doings
than the above, by what are called me
diums, in Buffalo. Hundreds are daily
privately holding circles, and seeking
communion with the departed. It is
time that the phenomena of what is
called spiritual manifestations was sub
jected to extensive and critical investi
gation by non-believers, whose decision
on matters of fact woud not be ques
If Spiritualism is a great truth it
should have a better following, and a
more discreet and sensible leading. If
it is a gross humbug, it is time it was
shown up. If it is a development of
new powers in man, it should be batter
understood, that it may be made of
more use to mankind.
The time is past for the question to
be dismissed with a sneer and a slur.
We know that many of the so-called
manifestations cannot be attributed to
fraud, although fraud is a large ele
ment in their public shows for money.
Either we are on the threshold of a
new and wonderful dispensation, or
tens of thousands of our people are la
boring under the greatest delusion the
world has ever known. What is it?
We are pleased to add another paper
to the list of those which are manly
and independent enough to speak out
on this subject. If thsse wonderful
phenomena occurring all around us are
due to spirit agency let us know it and
rejoice exceedingly that future life is
demonstrated', if they are the result of
fraud, let us know tliat also, and let us,
like Christ in the Temple, kick over
the tables on which they operate and
lash tlie counterfeit spirit-money chang
ers out of the house.
But there must be no more gagging,
and no more interference with full in
vestigation. The clergy and the bigots
must stop that or they will themselves
be kicked out of the temple.
The prompt indictment and punish

We wish once more to declare the
ADVANCE in favor of temperance,
first, last and all the time. If we have
liquor laws, let them be executed.
"Let no guilty man escape," should be
the motto here.
But just here is where the trouble
lies. At the spring term of Court sev
eral parties were promptly informed
against and fined $25, while old offend
ers who had sold barrels where the
punished parties had sold pints, escap
ed without indictment and continued
Judge Dickinson decided that a
druggist had no right to sell liquors on
a physician's perscription. One drug
gist declared that If that were le law,
he would not sell at all, and he has not
since sold liquors.
Another druggist, who has sold liqu
ors in Worthington for six or seven
yeais, took an active part in a temper

since and was, we are informed, put on
a committee to report upon the liquor
question and to devise ways to main

druggist selling lmrrels of liquor.

fair play. There must be no political
and church rings working together to
shield one man and punish another.

EDiTon ADVANCE: AS an indepen
dent citizen of Nobles County I wish to
inquire how it is that a Grand Jury,
under oath to be impartial, canfindin
dictments against Duffey and Jones for
selling two drinks of beer and against
James Monroefor getting a sick woman
a pint of liquor and find no indictments
against R. D. Barber, Crnndall Bros.,
or Miller & Smith when there was
more evidence to indict either of the
latter than there was the former.
I was a witness before the Grand Ju
ry and I told that august body I had
bought cider that contained liquor and
had drank lager beer furnished by
Crandall Bros., and Mr. Pearson says
he told the Grand Jury that he had
bought liquor of R. D. Uaiber at differ
ent times. C. B. Loveless, who was
foreman of the Grand Jury, told that
body in my presence tliat he had pur
chased liquor of Miller and Smith and
yet none of these pai ties are indicted.
Now, Mr. Editor, I claim to be
free and indepeident citizen of this
county and I wish to see the laws ad
ministered fairly and impartially. 1
do not think it right that a few per
sons are to be punished for trivial off
ences while others more guilty are al
lowed to escape. If we are to have a
temperance county let us have one in
every sense, or let us change our col
ors and admit that we aie no better
than our neighbors. A single drink of
beer worth 5 cents cost Nobles county
over a hundred dollars and yet beer is
acknowledged to be the healthiest bev
erage known to man. The St. Paul
Pioneer-Press, in speaking of Stall
man's Beer-Garden fair week, calls
lager beer "that promoter of temper
ance." It is an undisputed fact that a
person can get drunk any day in Wor
thing ton on the cider that is sold in all
our restaurants and if cider is too thin
it can be mixed with whisky or the
pure liquor can be got fiom our drug
stores. There are very few people in
Worthington who don't drink either
beer or something stronger, and a look
at the Express Company's books will
show who gets the most of it. I have
visited liquor houses in St. Paul, Min
neapolis, Mankato and Sioux City and
was surprised at the number and names
of their patrons in Woithington. I
am in favor of temperance, but I hon
estly believe that a well regulatPd sale
of liquors in this county would be a
promoter of temperance and would
save thousands of dollars to our peo
ple. T. H. PARSONS.
