SPIRITUAL FOOD FOR THOUGHT.
, Features of the Church Services of Yesterday. A large Congregation at the Simp son Tabernacle Revival. A Sormnii of a Quaker .Evangelist Thomson ou the Mantle of Elijah -A Flea for Peace* About 1500 people attended the re vival meeting in the Simpson taber nacle yesterday morning. Tbe sermon, which was preached by tbe Quaker evangelist, David B. Updergraff, was one of tbe most powerful and convinc ing yet delivered during tbe present series, and was marked by an unusual lack of the orthodox blood and thunder denunciations, Tbe address was preceded by a solo from Mies Updergraff, whose sweet mez zo soprano delighted those present. The evangelist chose for his text, the thirteenth veroe of St. Paul's second epistle to the Thesßalomans. But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved of the Lord, for that God chose you from the begin ning, unto Salvation, in sane tin cation of the spirit, and belief of tbe truth. In the course of his remarks be said: "Here is a powerful declaration of tbe end sought, and the method of receiv ing that end. Paul, in a few words, compresses the doctrine and the expe rience which ia necessary to every child of God. It is commonly believed that in those days, God performed miracles, and did good things for people, in a manner nnusual at this later day, but shall we not rather believe that God to day is just the Bame as then? It is the privilege of those who believe, it is our privilege to expect the same benefits and the same help from Him, and I praise God for it. I declare to you I think we come very far short of appreciating our heirship in Christ. Now peopls look on being saved by sanctification as next door to an im possibility; so it is, sactification is only the medium by which we may attain sal vation. Salvation doesn't mean simply being saved from hell, it means much more. It is not an insurance policy against the devil as tome would bslieve ; it is not only the desire to lead a Chris tian life, for tbe desire for snch a life must precede Balvation and the prayer for salvation. Now, what is a good defi nition of Balvation? I will give you one which I think and hope you will appre ciate. Salvation is a present possession of tbe imputed righteousness and belief in the pardoning capacity of Christ; it is being saved from tho power of sin. Now I am not going to exaggerate any thing. Salvation iB a wide term, aa a general term it covers everything from hell to heaven, but there are grand divis ions in it as in other generic terms. Sal vation may be divided into sanctification, and justification. Our bodily Balvation we need not bother about, for our soul's Balvation will be opened to us at the coming of our Lord .leans Christ. Now Paul shows that be has divided the term salvation into justification and glorification, for example, in which he writes to the Thesaalonians. Who are ttoy tbat they should be Considered fit candidates for salvation on those two terms. Were they Christians, newly converted? I think not. Tbe church at Theßsalonica was a model church, a church well up in the school of Christ, and therefore more fit for his lesions than many of ub today. People say often tbat they do not claim to be especially good, and that therefore too much must not be ex pected of them; yet we read in the scriptures of people who, because they followed God so faithfully in email things, were made rulers over all. These Thesealonian« were truly, and in every Bense of the word, saved people, as truly saved people as I hope some of you are thia morning, thank the Lord. We must be born again, our congregations must be new, our preachers must be new, new in Jesus Christ, but that is only the Beginning. Wo are not satis fied when we have a little child born to ub ;we are eager to develop it. Do you think that your Heavenly Father doeß not also desire your moral development as eagerly ? Do not delay. I remember that occa sionally people have given me tbe names of friende of theirß in strange cities, in order that when I visited those cities I might know where to find a friend. Occasionally I have thought it unnec essary to remember these names and have often regretted it when visiting their cities, but it was then too late. Oh, if I could tell you the things I have heard by the bedsides of the dying, of the laments of those who had lost their opportunities of finding the way. Mas the blood of Chrißt touched you in any way ? If so tben you are sanctified. Have you renounced the devil and all his worke? Then you are sanctified; you must pass under tbe blood ; in these ways were tbe Theasalonians sanctified. No man is privileged to live an unholy life; morally he dare not; it will bank rupt him, God will not allow the devil to compel you to live in sin. We cannot see him, but we know it, and we can see God in Heaven. There are come of you here thiß morn ing who are along way from Him. Come nearer to Him, He wante to dwell in our hearts, let God live your liveß for you, surrender you weapons of rebellion, give np your arms, make an unconditional surrender. In conclueion the speaker eaid : "Be hungry for grace ;now ia the time to get a good meal, you may be hungry again. I have a good appetite three times a <lay, aa the peoples)! am staying with can testify. God has made a good pro vision for us; take it. Humble your selves and the Lord Bhall fill you. How tnany of you are willing to Bay, thia iB *oa : s testbT" At the finises (if the sermon many of those preeent applied for admission into the tabernacle, and Evangelist Upder graff remained, in order to *a»lain any obscure points in his discourse fro those desirioua of obtaining information. Services will be held at the tabernacle Jvery day during the week except Sat urday. A whole day meeting is an nounced for Wedneaday, commencing at 9 in the morning. CHURCH. OF THE UNBY, • Dr. Thomson preached yesterday morning upon The Mantle of Elijah, taking for his text the words in Second Kings ii., 15. "Tbe spirit of Elijah doth rest unon Elisha." When Elisha asksd the elder prophet for a double portion of his spirit, he asked a bard thing. It was a similar case when Chriet was asked to give the two young disciples a place o» each side of Him in the kiugdom. He had to say in reply that it was not in His province to distribute preferment, and tbat tbe young men must earn promotion if they wculd obtain it. So Christianity Btarted out very early in civil service reform, and Christ taught that there wae to be no epecial favoritism, but tbat his sys tem was one where merit would be re waidelin spite of all apparent hin drances. The problem of success is one we all have to do with, and the four steps or coneiderations are: First, to remember that we can never succeed except in the thing that we were made for. Second, thought. We must apply our mental fac ulties exclusively in every line that leads to success. Prayer is thought toward God. When that thought be comes on fire it ia earneßt prayer. Third, work. The men and women that have bleßsed tbe world have ever been tha workers in it. Fourth, inspiration. The persistent workers according to law are blessed with inspiration, and those who have not achieved success have failed, because they let go. If you undertake what you aro fitted for and hold on to it you can make the world recognize your ability and the combination of faith, in spiration, tact, geniUß and character thnt have brought you to the front. Elijah's mantle was tbe symbol of his authority; he held ou to it to the very last; he did not get tired and say he would let a younger man do tbe work. Tho fact is that the man who prepares to retire prepares for a life of misery. This life is not too long for us to do all we can in it. At the same time the proper resta should be taken along the road of life, and the Sunday ia one of them. The unrelaxed strain of employ ment Ib fatal. The prominent railroad official just passed away was a caae in point. His work was a steady strain without intermission, until finally the Btring snapped and he died by tue way. In this continent young people show signs of age sooner than the people of other continenta, but at tbe same time no people show a greener or more active old age than thote of the United States; they hold on to their work, and seldom think of retiring. Still, it is human to think of our success in business, and many no doubt are waiting to know the right one to throw their mantle of suc cession upon, and tho thought of wbo will come after us when we are called into a region of higher activities gives natural trouble. When a man is about to die he always haß something to cay, some last request to make. Be honest with your promise to tbe dead. Some people when they die make a promise to come back if they can. They hardly ever do come back except when, in the solemn eventide, you sit alone with yourthour.hte fend be come conscious of their spiritual pres ence, and you commune with their soule in the only way that God allows. Is the great pathway of destiny controlled by spirits, that we know not of? The spirit cannot die; it is a part of God This thought Bhould make us feel mo com fortable. Tho spirits may com, and teach us; they don't set their bands upon us end control our individuality. Domination on their part or on the part of an auy. A would be acrime. Man's in dividuality sinks to the roots of his be ing ; it is too noble and godlike to be con l rolled in Buch a manner. Have you never triad to think when the thought you wanted would not como? At not, you have never been a preacher. All at once tbe thoughts come too fast 'or ycu to record them. How is it explained? I know what the psychologists would say; but the trouble with them is that they always stop short ».t the most interesting part, because they can go no further. There are the thoughts often suggested to our minds by the loneliest things, that flash upon us and resultin wonderful achisve ments. When you are sitting in your library reading tbe pr.ges of an author long since departed, you are face to face with a ghost; the writer's fingers mouldered into duat long years ago, perhaps, but he is with you all the same ana his thoughts have power to stir your blood. The Bibls is a library with its 60 books, and had more than that number of authors. They are talking to us now, and in the silence they come to us with inspiration and with power. The poor Catholic woman going into the church of the Madeline and kneel ing, weary and faint, before the picture of some departed saint or Virgin Mary, receives an inspiration which sends her on her way rejoicing. In this ccur'ry the Catholic church ia too often judged by our knowledge of Irish servant girls. The Protestant church would suffer if Bimilitrly judged. Pioteßtantiiin lacks some of those line, tender touches; it is essentially masculine compared to the feminine influence of the Catholic church with ite large membership of tine, spiritual women and exalted respect for the mother of the founder of Christianity. The speaker concluded with an elo quent appeal for the pinking of sectarian differences in the one grand effort to be Cbristlike and not to let go in Christian endeavor until death. The church was crowded ac usual. The subject of next Sunday morning's discourse was announced as The Nature and Necessity of Faith, which is chosen at the request of many hearerß. Dr. Thomson will speak at tbe Unity club social on Wednesday evening upon The lub and Outs of a Clergyman's Experi ence. A PI.BA FOR PEACE. The following plea has just been is sued by 235 representative Presbyterian ministers from all parts of the country. Among the signatures to this plea we are glad to notice the name of Rev. Dr. Chichester of this city. It is a dignified and manly protest againet the fanati cism of extremist?, who are endangering the church and unity. The following is the full text of the paper, with the sig natures omitted: To those who are actively engaged in the ministry of Christ, the chief inter est and the Cist du'y is the bringing of tbe simple gospel home to the hearts and lives of mon. Thiß is the great work of the church to which everything elee must give way. She can only win the favor of God and the love of men by single hearted devo tion to the task of preaching and prac ticing plain Christianity. As ministers of Jesus Christ, and working paßtorß in the Presbyterian church, we are filled with the gravest fears lest the usefulness of the church ahould bo hindered, her peace disturbed and her honor diminished by the preva lence of theological controversy and strife fiver doctrinea which are not es sential. We remember that there have been two sad periods in tbe history of our church in which this has happened. We remember that our church h*s been .twice rent asunder by issues which have been recognized shortly afterward* aa unnecessary. We dread the possibility of having eucb a painful experience re peated in our own times. We are per suaded that tbe great body of tbe church, laymen and ministers, have lit tle sympathy with the extremes of doja.

We feel that wo do not apeak for ourselves alone, but for the great multitude who hold the Bame conviction in regard to tbe first duty and main work of the church, while representing at the same time many different shades of theolog ical opinion. It iB in this spirit that we join our voices in a plain, straight-forward, fra ternal expression for harmony and united devotion to practical work. For this reason we deprecate any and every attempt to impose new tejta of ortho doxy, or to restrict the liberty hitherto enjoyed by those who sincerely sub scribe to the essential and necessary ar ticles of the Presbyterian cbnrcb. Es pecially would we deplore any haaty addition by informal resolution, or by judicial decision, to the confessional statement of the doctrine of holy scrip ture. We bold firmly to tbe teaching of tbe first chapter of "The Confession of Faith," and to the holy scriptures as the word of God, the only infalliable rule of faith and practice. We do not express any individual opinion in re gard to the theory of the inerrancy of tbe original autographs of scripture in matters which are not essential to reli gion, but differing as we may in regard to the abstract truth of that theory, we protest unitedly and firmly against mak ing assent to it a test of Christian faith or of good standing in the Preabyterian ministry. In the interests of Christian liberty, in tbe intereste of peace and unity, in the interests of missionary enthusiasm and progress, we take this poeition cleary and firmly, and we cordially in vite all wbo agree with us, to co-operate in maintaining these principles, believ ing tbat tbe end of the commandment is love out of a pure heart, and a good conecience, and a faith unfeigned ; and that the eureet defense of the truth iB its nnfaltering proclamation. THE MISSION EXHIBIT. A t'Nlol'K DISPLAY WHICH WILL BK orUS TODAY. A Display Which Is of Interest to Both Strangers and Old-Timers—Belles of the Past in Southern California. The mission exhibit room in the Po tomac block on Broadway, near Second street, will be open today and tonight. The exhibit is a maaeum, and contains as fine a collection of curios as can be collected anywhere. Theee objects are of especial interest to the people of California, as they are native to this wonderful state of wonders. In looking upon them one haß a realistic picture of California and its primitive people in the early days before the paleface came and dispossessed hie red brother of his home and his lands. Mission lite is rep resented by the model ot the San Luis Bey mission building, the work of Don Antonio F. Coronel aqd Sefiora Coronel. Here is shown tbeir mode of living, habitations, style of dress (or, rather, undress), system of labor, religious in struction, and daily life; and, to make the picture more realistic, several In dian women occupy a apace near the model who were nuns at the mission. One of these was born in the historic build ing. These women furnish amuaemeit to the visitor by making pinole .and tor tillaa—the system of cooking in the olden days—using the stone metate and other ancient kitchen utensils. The etereopticon views of the mißsion buildings, by W. H. Wilson, supple mented by the very interesting explan atory lecture of Misa Annie C. Murpby, is both an artistic nud intellectual treat. It ia a detailed illustrated history of the moat interesting feature of early Cali fornia. Mr. Bertrand, photographic artist, has taken numerous sketches of the mission buildings of Southern Cali fornia, showing them in their present Btate of decay. These views are on sale in the room. The money will be ap plied to the prevention of the further ruin of the grand old buildings, whoae ruina tbey so realistically depict. The admission to the exhibit ie only 25 cents, the money to be similarly ap plied. The Society for the Preservation of the Missions of Southern California haa in view a worthy object, the preeervation of these relics, the moat Interesting in the pages of early California history. Southern California pride should stimu late our people to render to the society the necessary financial aid. THE NEW CALIFORNIA!?. A Paris Notice of a Local Fnb lloatlon. The American News of Paris, of Janu ary 25th, contains the following: The TheOßOphical Journal of the Occi dent, issued monthly in Los Angelea, will appear in an early issue in a new dreaa and attractive cover. The Theo sophical Publishing company have arranged with M. Carl Gutberz of Paris for the reproduction of his painting, Ad Astra, for the cover of this maga zine. Visitors to the Salon of 1801 will remember the painting of a beautiful woman robed in white, who, seated in a fauteuil reading, has lifted' her eyss from her book—Camille Flammarion'e Uranie —to gaze at a star. She has paused at the words quoted by the great astron omer, "In my Father's house are many mansions," and the eyes and the paited lipa are telling that her 60ul is seeking the divine. The power of the painting ia its embodiment of the expression of cultivated intellect and sweet ness, and the legend will be par ticularly fitting to a journal really devoted to the search for truth and the proclamations of brotherhood.* The new year bringe about not exactly a de parture, but an amplification of the past plans of this magazine, which was founded two yeare ago by Dr. Jerome Anderson, a gifted American scholar, who is held In great esteem by tbe Cali fornian Tbeoßophists, but who has been forced to retire from the editorial chair because of ill health. The New Cali fornian is now edited by Louise Off, assisted by Marie Carbart. The maga zine should intereat Paris circles, since the programme for 1893 includes the names of several French and English writers and artists. Tbe March number will include a portrait of Lady Dufl'erin and Ava and an account of her Zenana mission in India; an occult story by Curtis Yorke, the popular author of Hush 1 The Brown Portmanteau, etc.; and in this prsaent month there begins a serial story by Pascal Germain, the author of Rbea, called The Lure, laid in Paris and Normandy. French Art of Today will be a series of papers by Carl Gutberz, the painter of The Light of In carnation, and Mme. Mary Necreponte (of tbe Westminster Review and other fame) will contribute verse. Tbe sub scription price is 7 francs and 50 con tTtaen a year. THRASHERS THRASH A WHALE. They Nearly Drive Him Into the Redondo Bath House. An Exciting Sea Duel Delights Some Eastern Visitors. A California Gray 1 hale Bugages In a Battle Boyal with Vive of His Traditional Enemies. The Redondo hotel ia the home of dignified laziness and eamptuouß ease. On the sunshiny winter dayß its broad balconies are lined with affluent people from all over the continent who ait there looking out at the gray old eea and wondering if there will ever be a line oi steamers leaving tbat dock for Hong Kong direct. There ia a epy-glaaa Bet upon a tripod on the porch, which works with a awivel that enables the bolder to sweep tbe entire horizon. Last Saturday a man from Boston got hold of thiß telescope, and bung on to it as though he was soldered to the tube. "That's right," aaid a New York man with a jealouß acowl, "take it all, hog, and I'll starve!" Ten minutes passed over and still the telescope fiend didn't let go worth a cent. A fat man from Puget sound came out and wanted a shot with the glass, and then says he, "Ob, will he never unhook?" Juat then the Boston man yelled out: "By Job Mosea, but it is a lovely fight." "Wot's a fight?" growled the New York man, from behind a copy of the Hebald, "Who-o-o'a a flghtin'?" "Porpoises, me boy," says the man from tbe Hub; "porpoises a-fighting like gosh all haystacks. Betore the New Yorker could rise to demand a look through the glass or the logging-camp man from Mox-la-Push could throw the spy-glass pig over the balcony, the piscatorial conflict (that is, if a whale can be termed a fish) waa shifted in shore. The whole affair waa plain in Bight without the aid of any glase. Here was a whale, a genuine "California gray," with four immense "thrashers" (orca rectaprima) in close attendance upon bim. The thrashers were diving down close behind the whale and slapping him over the loins with their immense tails, and the blows sounded like claps of thunder. The pur sued whale headed right In shore for the bath house, and it did for a moment look as if he would be stranded. Sud denly two other whales came to the res cue of tbeir beleaguered kinsman, aud the "tbrashers," taking the bint, stood out to sea once mors, ieaving tbe guests of the big hostelry to wonder what the next nine daya' wonder would be. A WILMINGTON CASE. Something That the District Attorney Should Look Into. There is a case at Wilmington that certainly demands prompt action on the part of the district attorney's office, as described to a Herald reporter by an arrival from Wilmington yeaterday : It seems that a man by the name of Phillips, who lived about two miles from the town of Wilmington, according to the Herald's informant, on last Wednesday saw a man and hoy engaged in a difficulty—one oi them being a boy about 14 years old. The mau had a gun and waa trying to shoot the boy. Mr. Phillips at once jumped on a horse that he had staked out and rode over to them and appealed to them to desist. The man at once seized the gun and struck Mr. Phillip", knocking him from bis horse and proceeded to beat hie body and face, breaking his jaw bone and his left forearm in two places, aud had it not beeu for Phillips' wife would un doubtedly have killed him. After the arrival of Mrs. Phillips the men got into their wagon near by and left. Mr. Phillips is an old man 74 yearß of age, of good character, inof fensive, and greatly respected by lm neighbore. It seems a warrant waa Bworn out before Judge Johnson for the arrest of tbe alleged assailant, who tnrncd out to be one Maines. Maiuea waß arrested and entsred a plea of guilt; of battery, and this morning at 9:80 is tbe time for sentence. It ia not tbe first time tbat Mainea baa been ar rested for like offenses, and has been Bet free with a nominal fine. The people of Wilmington are much exercised over the matter, as it is not certain that Phil lips will live. The district attorney should at once dispatch some one to Wilmington to look after the matter. HE WAS HAPPY. An Incident Yesterday at a Bovlval Meeting. Among the many different incidents which occurred at the revival meeting, at the Simpson tabernacle yesterday morning, waß one which strongly ap pealed to tbe risibility of many of thoee present. A disheveled specter, who had evi dently spent the earlier part of the morning in somewhat moro convivial company, and had been attracted into the building by the hope of an hour's slumber, undiiturbed by rude remarks or reminders from unfeeling police and patrol wagons, suddenly woke up at the commencement of the hymn: "This is my story, this is my song." A happy smile overspread his features, ami conn Tit n't ing his somewhat wander ing senses on tbe words that were being sung the victim of tanglefoot slowly arose, and in a delighted tone of voice exclaimed: "1 hash 'good song, shing it myself," and drifted down the aisle and out into the sunshine, singing in aeomewhat un certain key, but with great gusto: "I bish isb my shtory, thish iah my ehong, praisheß, praishes, all er day long," and during the prayer that followed the statement could be heard at intervals as he meandered down tho street, to the effect that be would "shing praishes, praisheß, all er day long," The only Pure Cream of Tarlar Powder.—No Amoouia; No Alum.

Mr. Reame was driving down Temple street hill in a buggy, accompanied by his wife and two children. When at Temple and Pearl streets the horse be came, uncontrollable, and in running down hill threw Mr. Reame out of the buggy violently againet tbe ground. He sustained a severe injury to the spine, and was otherwise badly bruised. Mr. Hoffman, seeing the runaway, came to the rescue, stopped the horse and succeeded in getting Mrs. Reame and the children out of the buggy unin jured, but he was thrown to the ground by the frightened horse and trampled upon, sustaining Berioua injnriea about the head.

TERESA OASDLO IDKNTIFTKS OAK CIA AS USE ASSAILANT. The Girl and Her Brothers See the Prisoner in the City Jail and Un kesltatiugly any That He Is the Offender. The identification of Jose Garcia as the man who committed the brutal as sault upon the girl Teresa Caaulo, laat Thursday night, seems to be complete. Yesterday morning the little girl, accom panied by her father, visited the central police station. She was taken to bis cell and the fellow waa called to • tie door. At first glance the little girl said: Jose Garcia. "That is the man who threw me to the ground, tore my clothing and almost etrangled me to keep me from calling for help." Aleck Cas'ilo, aged about 15 yeare, a brother of Teresa, and George Giegerich, aged I.) yearß, ulao recognized the man aa the one who assaulted the girl. They recognized the man's features and the clothing which ha wore at the time. These are the young men who oppor tunely came to the girl's assistance and chased the fellow some distance. The boys thraw rocka at the man, and their pursuit waa co close that Garcia threw away hia coat and veat in order that he might make greater epeed with loeb ballaEt. He lost or throw away hia bat. the young men took theae articles to the police station, and yesterday again identified them ac worn by Garcia at the time of the assault Police Clerks Cottle and Bean also recognize the clothing and bat aB having been storn by Garcia, who has been in the police Btation several timea within the past few months on charges of drunkenness. (iarcia re'iißed to talk when confronted by his accusers, but finally admitted that the clothing aud hat were hia, but stated that he lost them a few nights ago while he was drunk. The father of the girl stated tbat he had seen Garcia in the vicinity of his house a few days previous to the aseault upon hie daughter, and that the fellow waß eeen to chase after two little girls who were gathering flowera in the cafion near where the assault was committed. Teresa, the little girl upon whom the aeEault was committed, is aged 13 years, and ie rather bright and her positive identification is probably correct. In addition, that of tho young men, and of l'ol'ee Clerks Cottle and Benson, seems to mal°6 the identification clear. A warrant will be issued this morning and Garcia will be charged with the crime of attempted rape. A CLOSE CALL. Farmer Snmnels of Madera Has an Ex citing Kxperlence With a Lion. A. L. Biplev, a farmer and stock raiser living some ih miles north of here, says the Madera Mercury, was in Madera re cently. Mr. Ripley gave au account of an encounter some parties in hia neigh borhood had not long since with a Cali fornia lion. Mr. Ripley's nearest neigh bor, 8. A. Ramuelß, had lost several fino sheep from hia little band, and up to Thursday night was unable to determine what kind of an animal it was that was committing the depredations. Tbe night fn question, however, Mr Samuels heard a commotion among his flock and imme diately grabbing up a shotgun hurried to the corral. He could just distinguish through the gloom some strcnge creature standing over a sheep which it had just killed. Mr. Samuels leveled his gun at tbe noc turnal marauder and tired. The animal gave a terrific howl, aud instead oi run ning away bounded in the direction of Mr. Sainuelß. This unexoected attack rather disconcerted the gentleman aud be made no effort to get out oi tbe ani mal's way. In a moment the creature was upon him, and the force of the con tact caused Mr. Samuels to lose hie grasp on bis gun. He had begun to think his last moment bad arrived, but, beyond the injuries received in tbe way of a badly lacerated arm, he was nnhurt. Mr. Samuels lay where be bad been thrown for some minute l , not daring to move for fear he would again be at tacked. Finally, however, he sum moned up courage to raise himself on his elbow, and, glancing cautiously around, saw tbe form of the sheepkiller outlined upon the ground. Making up his mind that the animal bad been killed By the shot, Mr. Samuels cautiously approached and discovered such to be the caae. Mr. Sainuels's surprise was great when be discovered the bloodthirsty prowler to be nothing less than a very large Cali fornia lion. It is generally claimed that these ani mals are afraid of a man. hut Mr. Samuels says tie considers them sociable enough to satisfy any one. SUPPRESS THEM. Demoralizing- Psjmri Which Should Come Under the lian. "The postal authorities atLos-Angeies should certainly take some steps for the suppression of obscene papers, or rather for preventing their transmission through the United States mails," said an observant gentleman yesterday, who seems disgusted with tho many free and easy publications tbat flood the mails. "These papers claim that they are not obscene. The language doea not come within the meaning of the law, but the Insinuations are the West in the extreme. They are libelous in their very utterances. Years ago the out raged people of San Francisco suppressed the infamouß assignation house black mailing Bheet, styled the Mazeppa, and the human leper wbo controlled it fled the city to avoid well-mer ited imprisonment. Similar sheets are in existence now in tbat city and iv Portland, Ore., and it is abov. time that the government should prd tect the people from slander by denyisj such sheets transportation through tl/e mails. There ie tfuito a difference between the liberty of the press and the abuße of that liberty. These sheets are neither newspapers nor literary papers. The object of their publication is plain blackmail. They corrupt the morals of the community by pandering to the vulgar taste, and incidentally breed a class of criminals whom the taxpayers support. A Boeiety for tbe suppression of vice and crime Bhould be organized for the prevention of the Bale of Buch papers upon the streets." Astonishing Fnct.
