The Decision In the Former Casa De lighted the Bolder of the Black Slaves-- The White Slave Now the Yletlms. The decision ot the United States Su preme court, in the Dred Scott case in 1857, elated the slave holders of the soifth no less than the recent decision of the Supreme court on the Income tax, elate the plutocratic bondholders of the east and the north. The decision in the Dred Scott case followed a great national political vic tory by the democratic party a party which had been the friend and advo cate of the doctrine of slavery. The income tax decision follows the political victoiy of the republican party a party which has been the friend and advocate of plutocracy and class legis lation. The advocates of slavery regarded the decision of this high court as a final settlement of a question which had two eldes to It But the decision did not settle the question. - It aroused indignation and cemented opposition. The people dis trusted the patriotism and honesty of the members of the court a four years' war destroyed slavery and amended the constitution. The millionaires and bondholders of the north and east may regard the In come tax decision as a final settlement of the question of the protected classes against the unprotected masses. But It has not settled it and will not set tle it The doctrine that those who have money derived from the renting ot real tangible personal property, or who own Invested personal property, have tax privileges that cannot be accorded to those who have money derived from the labor of their hands, the sweat of their brow or the exercise of their skill, Is a doctrine that cannot stand in America. Justice Harlan in his dissenting opinion put the case mildly when he eald "are those In whose behalf argu ments are made that rest upon favorit ism by the law making power aware that they are provoking a contest which, in some countries, has swept away in a tempest of frenzy and passion, exist ing social organizations, and put in peril all that was dear to the friends of law and order?" Thomas Jefferson understood and feared the power of a corrupt Judiciary when he wrote Mr. Coray as follows: "At the establishment of our consti tution the Judicial bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government Experi ence, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous that the Insufficiency ot the means provided for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsi bility in office; that their decisions, seeming to concern Individual suitors only, pass silent and unheeded by the public at large; that these decisions, nevertheless, become law by prece dent sapping little by little the foun dations ot the constitution and work ing Its change by construction before any one has perceived that that invisi ble worm has been busily employed in consuming its substance." Has not subsequent history conferred upon the utterance of Jefferson the dig nity of prophecyT The Dred Scott decision seemed "to concern individual suitors only," but belnf ,contrary to the public sentiment existing at the time of its rendering it took on national and sectional im portance and resulted in installing the "third," or minority, political party In to power and control of the govern ment The income tax decision sets at caught all precedents of law; denounces the legislative branch of the govern ment as a set of demagogues and nin compoops; violates public sentiment and attempts to establish a monied autocracy. ' The further fact of the equal division of the bench upon this question when it was first argued, and the subsequent change of opinion by Justlo Shlras, by which the majority of one waa obtained IDEA OF A "SOUND" SILVER against the law, will not Impede the possibility of history repeating itself. People's Party Paper. MORGAN ON SILVER. The Free Silver Fly Invited Into the Gold Standard Spider! Parlor. At the session of the silver conven tion in Memphis, a letter from Senator John T. Morgan, of Alabama, was pre sented, but was not read, on account of the press business before the con vention. In It the senator said: "This convention, at Memphis is the natural, if not necessary, result of the popular meeting held there under the patron age and approval of our Democratic administration, and it will be a pro test against the platform adopted un der such auspices in hostility to the established creed of the Democratic party. "They have appealed against the Judgment of the party so often pro nounced in support of the equal rights of gold and silver at the mints, and they demand that this appeal shall be heard and decided outside the counsels of the Democratic party by a general muster of all the enemies ot silver money to be found In every political organization. We invite all the friends of money that was 'sound' until silver was struck below the fifth rib by its Jealous brother, and, having survived the assassin, is still 'sound,' to come into the Democratic camp, and to aid us in healing the wounds ot this faith ful servant of the people and the gov ernment. Under the Bland act and the Sherman act we paid all the bonds in reach of the government, and now we are Issuing bonds at the rate of $4, 200,000,000 a year, and are sending our assistant secretary to London to sign thme and deliver them to the Roths childs. "Under the Bland-Allison act we had a surplus of $100,000,000 at the end ot Mr. Cleveland's first term, and now we have a deficit ot $100,000,000 in the midst ot Mr. Cleveland's second term. "The people are growing w.eary of this grind, and they feel it, and in all their interests they have already learned by experience the true situa tion, and they will not unlearn these sad lessons in any new school that is set up to conduct this campaign of ed ucation. "Our duty as Democrats is a possible one, and Is to follow the old leaders and look more closely to our political lead ers." "It was not read on account of the press of business." That's what the papers stated. The real reason Is be cause it too plainly disclosed the ob jects of the meeting, so far as the poli ticians were concerned. We have no doubt but that many Democrats who attended the Memphis sliver conven tion were honest and sincere in their motives. There Is no doubt in our minds but that the Populists who at tended that convention were also hon est In their intentions. They, as well as others, were invited there, believing that it was to be a nonpartisan affair, and that its real object was to make an honest effort to have free coinage ot silver restored to the people. If the above letter leaves any doubt that this and all kindred conventions are fran tic efforts to prevent the disintegration of the Democratic party in the South and West, the following expressions from two of the most prominent Demo crats, who were present, are certainly sufficient to remove that doubt It is true that in opening the convention, Senator Harris said: "It was strictly a nonpartisan organization, composed of Democrats, Republicans and Populists. Its doors were open to every American citizen, who honestly believed in the propriety, the advisability and the ne cessity of the rehabilitation of silver." Before the convention adjourned Senators Harris, Turple and Jones were appointed a committee to select a national committee, consisting of ono man from each State to work to ad vance the cause of silver. This committee met, and Senator Harris said: "The league will be purely a Demo cratic organization formed for the pur pose of securing a perfect organization ot the silver Democrats in the country for the purpose of controlling the ut terances of the next national Democrat lo convention upon the financial ques tion. I have no doubt that the great majority ot the people are in favor of DOLLAR. free coinage, but unless they organize It will be Impossible for them to make the next platform." "You clearly understand," put In Senator Jones, "that this movement is strictly within the lines of the Demo cratic party, and we want the country to understand that. The organization of silver advocates in an Independent body without partisan character can not have the effect of giving or gaining strength to silver Democrats in a way that will enable them to control the sending of their delegates to the vari ous conventions. An organization within the lines of the Democratlo party, like the proposed, is absolutely essential to the success of the issue in our next national convention." A Texas paper, commenting on this action, says: "Senator Harris also emphasized the fact that the National Bimetallic League is to be a Democratic organiza tion. "And a Democratlo organization It is, Jrom each State on the executive com mittee, with authority to call a conven tion for permanent organization, which will be held in Chicago sometime in July. The question is, what were the Republicans and Populists invited to Memphis for? And will any of them be big enough fools to- attend the sec ond meeting at Chicago?" We have no criticisms for the Popu lists who attended that convention. We believe that they did it In perfectly good faith, and with the best of objects. But the question might be asked, what did we gain? If the masses controlled the conventions, something might be gained, for they are honest; but every time we meet with the Democratic poli ticians our reputation will be smirched, even if our objects are good. We all know the story of old Tray. A man who knows the baneful results of a gold standard, and knows the record of the Democratic and Republican parties on that question, and who has not the mor al courage and sterling honesty to get out of the old rotten hulk that foisted it on the country, will not do to trust, no matter how many resolutions he passes or silver conventions he favors. These silver conventions are being held for the purpose of deceiving the masses Into the belief that the Democratic par ty will restore free silver coinage, and to prevent the voters from leaving the party to the end that a few men can be elected to office and enjoy the privi leges of no work and a big fat salary. There is Just one free sliver party in the country, and when a man is really sincere in his advocacy of free silver, he will most certainly vote with that party in preference to either of the two gold bug parties. In speaking of the corruption which has grown up among us, Governor Alt geld recently said: "Just see what a brood of evils have sprung from the power of capitalism since 1870. 1. The striking down of over one-third of the money of the world, thus crushing the debtor class and paralyzing the Industry. '2. The growing of that corrupt use of wealth which is undermining our institutions, debauching public officials, shaping legislation and creating Judges who do Its bidding. 3. Exemption of the rich from taxation. 4. The substitution of government by injunction for govern ment by the constitution and laws. 6. The striking down of trial by Jury. Never has there been so much patri otic talk as In the last twenty-five years and never were there so many in fluences at work strangling republican Institutions." It will require something more than a single plank, or even currency reform, to reach the great evils that threaten our liberties. Brooks and the Episcopal Church. The Rev. William M. Brundage, of Albany, speaking before the American Unitarian Association In Boston on Tuesday evening, said: "Five years ago Bishop Brooks, then Dr. Brooks, when I called upon him to ask him about fellowship In the Episcopal Church, for I was uneasy and restless, told me that he would not advise any young man In search of freedom to go Into the Episcopal Church. Just four weeks before Bishop Brooks died he told a personal friend of mine that he would not advise him to go Into the Episcopal Church la tearch of freedom." Bit Depressing Thought. He had V een silent In thought for fome time. ,Vt length he heaved a sigh, whloh movei hli friend to inquire what the trouble was. "This world ain't run right," he an swered. "Why, you ought to be happy. You've been away enjoying yourself, I under stand." "Yes. I've been away, but I don't see much enjoyment not in a world where the fish are so shy about bltln an' the mosquitoes so eternally wllllnV "-Washington Star.

An Attempt to Solve the Great Mystery of Bird Migration. In an article on "Birds of Passage" the Chautauquan says If one desires an explanation for the great mystery of bird migration, there being nothing else that will answer, he will have to accept the theory of hereditary knowl edge, a, knowledge of the unfailing stars. The Great Bear and Orion ap peared at the same time In our region, even when the divisions of land and water were very different than they are today. That the star are the guides of birds agrees with the fact that they fly at remarkable heights, often above the clouds, and that wanderers lose their way when they stray Into clouds and mists. On starlight nights strag gling birds are seldom noticed. When the sky is overcast, when the night is dark, but especially when a fine rain Is falling, multitudes ot traveling birds are heard. They will call often, doubt less for the purpose of keeping near each other; and often great numbers of them bound against the windows of lighthouses. Thus Gatke has observed that on Oct. 28, 1883. from 10 o'clock at night till the next morning golden crested wrens bumped like snowflakes against the lighthouse of Heligoland, and that on the following day golden crested wrens sat on every square foot of Heligoland. Toward the end of the summer, along into the fall, it was not a rare occurrence on dark nights to see, through the light of street lamps, birds flying over Inland cities. The ex perienced observer recognizes by its call the curlew and the strand-snipe, sea swallow and seagull, occasionally bears even the flap of their wings. But no bird Is visible in the darkness. On dark nights no stars appear; then It is that the straying WrJ loses hts way. The stais are the most plausible guides to birds in their migrations. But only the future can tell us whether they really serve In that capacity. bUESCRIBB FOh HEW TRAIN THE "KNICKERBOCKER SPECIAL" DAILY BETWEEN St. Louis, Cincinnati, fa fori anil Boston. .
