PROHIBITION AND TEMPERANCE.
Francis Murphy, the "Gospel temjir
ance" reformer, lias taken the Prohibi
tion party to tak very severely for in
terfering with his work at Younstow n,
Ohio. He utterly condemned drawing
the temjM'rance movement into politics,
and declared that despite the strict pro
hibition law of Maine for so many years,
a great deal of whisky is drunk there,
and that it was as easy to get a diink in
Iowa or Kansas as it was in any non
prohibition State. Temperance was a
personal matter, and had nothing to do
with politics. "Prohibition," he said,
"never accomplished anything:. It never
made a man pober or a home happy. I'y
its fruits fchall ye know it. Pay no at
tention to the man who says : 'Elect me
and I'll pass a law, and if yon don't
obey it I'll put you in jail.' Make your
own prohibitory law. Extend your fellow
ship to your neighbor and help him.
Try love, not law. Laws can't make a
man sober. Try moral suasion, not
force. When a ' 'man who has
taken the pledge falls, help him up
and stand by him; suck to him.
Nothing can make
from drink except Jod and his own
will'. Why, up in Sing Sing Prison, with
in the walls of a penitentiary, the strong
hold of the law, a convict came out the
other day who had found a way of mak
ing whisky out of the peelings of iota
toes and turnips and apples and the re
fuse of the table, and he had actually
made thousands of dollars peddling
whisky under the very nose of the law.
Prohibition don't prevent it."
This has the ring of the sound metal.
It is the opinion of a man who tinder
stands what he is talking about, and
who is also in earnest. Temperance re
form ia Francis Murphy's life work, and he
is not enamored of political temperance
movements. They simply bring dis
credit upon the good work, which should
be one of moral suasion and social influ
ence. Should the Prohibitionists of the
United States iersit in a distinct or
ganization, or attempt to dictate to
either of the great political parties, they
will antagonize many friends of temper,
ance and postpone the great reform now
in progress in America.
SalnumW A Xovel.
Saxon & Co., of London and New
York, have recently published an Eng
lish translation of Gustave Flaubert's
famous historical novel, "Salaumbo."
The original, written over twenty years
ago, earned for its traveled and erudite
author the title of the founder of the
modern school of French realistic and
naturalistic literature, a style which
bolder and less scrupulous hands, play
ing upon the chords of the inherent im
moral life of man, have broadened and
debased into passionate and sensualist ic
It is creditable to M. French Sheldon,
the translator, that he has succeeded in
. reproducing, in a hitherto considered
untranslatable work, to a very great ex
tent the true spirit of the original, its
studied sentences and almost its lyric
rythm and oriental coloring. n his
part it has evidently been a conscien
To the minds of the majority of Eng-

appear coarsely brutal in its realistic de
scriptions of bloody warfare, barbaric
cruelty, demoniacal rapine, ravage and
debauchery, with the more n lined and
far more interesting works of Kingsley"?
"Hypatia" and Eulwcr's "Lat Days of
Pompeii." To the aivhaologist and the
poet, to the playwright and the artist, it
will continue to be, as it has been
ia the past, a perfect treasure house of
ripened student lore and inspiring sug
gestions. It is a great poem, in w hich morality has
but a secondary consideration , and it is one
written by a master hand. It deals with
the era when Canhage was struggling
for existence against the attacks of the
barbarians and mercenaries, and the 1
jrcat Ilannikd was 1ut ;i l-oy. His
father, Haini!(ir IJarca, in the leading
fiuro, and SaIaurnlo, Hamilrar's
daughter the heroine, whilt Mathu, the
leader of the harharian ho.-t, is the
tragedy hero. To those who have not
forgotten the history of this very extit
inir period of the world's ae, and can
read with interest the details of the
bloody and cruel sacrificial rites of
Moloch, Eaal and the ancient cults, .and
are not easily nauseated with Ucnp
tions of slaughter and lust, the story will
be found .sujerb in its word painting and
fascinating in its diab'ery. It is not a
book, however, which should be put
into the hands of younjr eoile.

In the Supreme Court yesterday morn
ing at 10 o'clock the case of the King vs.

W. Hingley. Major Kosa appeared for
the Crown, and Hon. Paul Neumann for
defendant. The evidence was quite
lengthy, and the case was not given to
the jury until 7:45 o'clock in the evening.
At 9 :20 Mr. Justice Preston called the
jury in and asked them if they had agreed
upon a verdict, which, was answered in
the negative. They were sent out again,

were unable to agree to a verdict. His

time they stood G to (, and the final bal
lot was 7 for acquittal and 5 for convic
tion. In our "By Authority" column it will
