The men who died on the gallows in
Chicago, November 11, refused spiritual
consolation from the first moment to the
last. Not one of them was a believer in
God, or religion, or moral accountability,
or the Sabbath and its ministrations, or a
future life, or a conscience. They did not
believe that the marital relation had any
divine sanctity, or any special sanctity,
outside of the affections. They were in
fidels. They believed in nothing. They
held nothing sacred. They bad no faith
and no hope except in the disordered
pride of unbelief and in a comprehensive
diregard of both human and divine law, of
social order, and of all that welds civilized
society together and renders its associa
tions endearing and delightful.
Jesus Christ represented on the earth
every interest, every thought, every hope,
every tie of labor and of the poor. His
teachings belong to every relation that
men bear to each other. His gospel was
given to the poor. H ; s charity was as
universal as humanity. Re created in
the hearts and thoughts of mankind, so
far as His system is believed and practic
ed, a heaven upon earth. There is no
peace, no fruition of hope, no possible
condition under which mankind may
reach its highest capabilities and aspira
tions, that is not exemplified in His pre
cepts. He said: “Love thy neighbor as
thyself;” He said: “Blessed are the mer
ciful,” and “Blessed are the peace-mak
ers.” He bore the cross for all that was
evil and sinful. If there is in all human
thought, in all the world of sympathy
and love, a kindly and gracious emotion,
it is the inspiration drawn from Christ
and His religion. Yet theanarchistsdes
pise His name, reject His divine mission,
revile His undying truths and deny that
He was God revealed in.th* 3 flesh. Jesus
Christ said also: “Render unto Csesar
the things that are Caesar’s,” and He held
that obedience to human laws was a pre
paration and discipline for obedience to
divine laws, and was also its matured and
beneficent fruit.
For this reason, probably, anarchy has
espoused infidelity. Lawlessness is an
archy. All that hates and despises the
law is anarchy. Anarchy is revolt against
all law, human and divine. Anarchy
begins in infidelity. It beginsin adenial
and defiance of God. It ends in such
tragedies as were enacted at the Haymar
ket in Chicago, May 4, 1886, and in the
jail of the same city, November 11, 1887.
Irreligion, a denial of Christianity, disbe
lief in Bible truth are the pernicious seed
from which this pernicious fruit has pro
Every teacher of infidelity, of a Christ
less civilization and culture, of contempt
for religion and its divine truths, of dis
belief in a Chriatian|gospel, is an anarchist
in his heart, and his teachings lead to such
scenes as those of the Reign of Terror in
France ari l of the dynamite tragedy in
Chicago. From Voltaire down to Bob
Ingersoll, every public teacher who has
taught disbelief in God, in the Bible, in a
future life and in human accountability,
is responsible for the blood that has been
shed in war against social law and in
atonement for crimes against society and
its laws.
There are men whose dailv lives are
possibly more impure than those of the
anarchist teachers, who violate moral law,
the lawsof home, the lawsof business and
the laws of propriety. But they are not,
like 1 he anarchists, the enemies of society.
In their best thoughts and impulses they
are conservators of society. They are op
posed to lawlessness and ruin. The an
archist, however pure his private life, is
an enemy of order. He believes in des
truction and ruin He would overturn
and demolish every existing law, every
social regulation, every form of faith and
every method of civilized mankind. If
socimycan not he overturned by peaceful
methods he believes that forceful and
bloody methods should be adopted. For
this reason an immoral and lawless man,
whose practices,habits and life are bad
who may even be a criminal as regards
property rights or deeds of violence—if
hs has a theoretical belief in God—is a
good man and a valuable member of so
ciety as compared with the infidel who,
however pure his life, denies the existence
of Deity, the truth of divine teachings
and the gospel that was taught by Jesus
Christ.— Chicago Journal , Nov. 12,1887.

Democrats Who Are Willin’.—
Speaking of the Democratic nomination
for governor of Wisconsin, there seems to
be more than the usual number of prom

friends. Hon. John Winans has been
pursued by his friends so long, that it is
understood that be has concluded to ac
cept the nomination to get rid of them.
Dr. Johnson, of Hudson, who came so near
defeating Nils P. Haugen for congress,
last spring, it is understood would like
the nomination. Ex-Senator Andrew
Haben, of Oshnosb, has his rod way up
high, and the friends of Hun. John D
Putnam, of River Falls, who ran for lieu
tenant-governor last fall, insist that he
should be given a chance to show his
running qualities to better advantage.
Friends of John Lawler and ex-Senator
Silverthorn are “taking them up,” and it
is said Congressman Tom Hudd would
not throw the nomination over his shoul

How the Great Railroads Keep Track of
Their Rolling Sto>-k.
Oar chasers are among the most im
portant employes of the great trunk
lin cs of railroads. The title exactly,
describes their business. On some rail-;
roads they are called traveling car
agents. The department head who em
ploys them is also called variously the
car agent, the car accountant or the
superintendent of rolling stock. These
officials have as many as a dozen as-,
siscants on some of the great roads,'
nine or ten being clerks at $3O or $lO a
month, and the rest being chasers who
travel all over the country on free
passes hunting up missing cars, and
who receive $l2O or $lOO a month and
expenses. i
Great railroads have immense num
bers of cars. The Central railroad of
New Jersey has about 85,000 of all sorts;
the Pennsylvania railroad 30,000 or
70,000. These cars are at the present
moment in every State in the Union.'
They go wherever the freight with
which they are loaded is billed to, and
thus are scattered from Winnipeg to
Mexico and Los Angeles to Bangor. A
most minute and thorough sy.- tem, ob
taining on ;d’ r -'l m •’ the very
smallest, iucoi a... cwr, m.. v . icnt of
every car. This system operates at all
junction points, where the agents re-'
cord the ownership and number of
every car that passes from their road
tea connecting line, and immediately
notify the roads whose cars are thus in
motion, as well as the car accountant
of their own road. These notitications
are made by postal card. In each
general office car account books are
kept, and the movement of the com
pany’s own cars are recorded, from
day to day. Whenever a loaded car is
emptied on a foreign road, that road
uses it to carry a load of freight back
in the direction of the road to which
the car belongs. It pays at the rate of
seven-eights cent a mile for this use of
its neighbor’s property in this way, and
if it should happen that there was no
freight to he shipped in that direction
within a reasonably short time, the
empty car is sent,along and mileage is
paid on it as if it were laden.
It is when a number of ears are lost
sight of that a traveling agent is sent
out. Sometimes it happens that the
cars are on little branch roads idle and
overlooked, sometimes they have fallen,
into the hands of a company that is
short of cars and full of business, and
Sometimes other equally simple causes
delay it. If it is in use by a company
short of cars, that company pays mile
age on it, until it sometimes happens
that a car is worn out and paid for be
fore it is returned, or else it is never re
turned at all. If a car chaser demands
the return of his company’s cars, they
are sent home; but often others are
seized and put to use when his back is
turned, and he is traveling elsewhere.
If a car is smashed up in a railroad ac
cident, it is either rebuilt, anew one is
made, or the price of the car is paid to’
the owners by the company on whoso
track the smash-up occurred.
Every contingency is provided for in
the system that has grown up among
the great roads. Recently the master
car builders of f he country agreed on a
set of schedule of prices for every con
ceivable damage to cars, and the result
is going to be that the rolling stock of
all the roads will grow more and more
uniform in style and quality, since it is
agreed that only serviceable parts
shall be put on ears that need mending,
no matter how expensive and fanciful
those parts may have been originally.

A Mammoth Gorilla.
Boston has just received from Afri
ca the largest gorilla ever landed in
this country. His name is Jack, and
he is live feet in height when stand
ing erect, and measures seven feet
from the end of one outstretched hand
to the other. He weighs about one
hundred and twenty-live pounds, and
exhibits enormous sirength, compared
with which that of man seems like a
child’s. He arrived in a large box
made of planking two and one-half
inches thick, and when being removed
from the ship he tore large splinters
from the hard-wood planks with as
much ease as a child would break a
twig. The hair, which is very coarse
and from two to four inches in length,
is of a greenish-gray color, and on
the back, legs and arms inclines to a
black. His shoulders are immense.
The expression of the face,' which is
black, is scowling. The eyes are
small, sunken in the head, and the
Ups large and thin. —Boston Courier.
