VH 4 a I fr^A CELAS& &tOOS, Managing Editor .__ 1 a %1 Wedne&af* Defiember 28,1887. n?InthfW, & X- U, column of the Alexandra (Minn.) Post, the Rev. Seth M. Wilcox, tin ardent but honest tem i per^nce man, e: i^the frandulant methods employed hvf the local com mittee of the W.C.T.U. in quoting pass ages from text-books not sanctified by sr the touch of Mrs. Hunt's band. We make the following extracts from Mr. *J Wilcox's article, and in so doing shall not employth methods of quoting in 4 vogue among the worshipers of that eminenffinder of paths/ scientific and otherwise, Mrs. Mary Hunt. Mr. Wil cox says: "A deliberate attempt has been made by those who opened the dispute with the State board to create the impression that Dr. Smith's books were non-committal on the effects of tobacco and alcohol .To create this i impression, quotations were made which were always garbled, and words so changed as to make the author say just the opposite of what he did sa}. This is a very unfair and dangerous method of treating the opinions or statements of an opponent. By that method one can make the infidel lee* tures of an Ingersoll teach the sweetest ~&m lessons of faith and piety, or the Bible pL.*/ii teach the rankest atheism.... But be fore we examine the book to see how fair he (Dr. Smith) is quoted, let us trv this treatment.on some other book ike the Bible. I open to the 14th Psalm, and in the 1st verse read these words, "There is no God," Taking [these words entirely out of their con 'nection, do they fairly represent the ^teaching of the Bible *'i Turning to ^Matt. 27, 5, I find it said of Judas that **'he went and hanged himself." Now Luke 10, 37, "Go and thou like- wise." Garbling these quotations and ,jjising-4hen* thus is not quite fair, is it Now let u& try the*same method on the Pathfinder Primer On page 24 of the Primer are these words, "A little alcohol is not so bad," "What are you afraid of? Don't be a coward, take a little... As a matter of fact, every w^Jrd of these quotations is true, but ^they do not tell the whole truth, and there is no untruth so dangerous as that which is half true." The Rev. Seth W. Wilcox ought to inow thatvehiclearefjust wftich, there twe works to as revealed truth the principles of Mrs. Hunt's scientific ^reasoning must not be applied. These two works are the Bible and the Path der" Series. Both are too holy to be quoted and in the estimation of theW C. T. U., the second certainly taW&.ln'ecedence over- the first. The Wrt3r% tJ*3s pifc-eminehtly a temper ance union, with so much Christianity as is found to be consistent with Mrs. Hunt's articles of faith. In Henry George's paper, HE STAN- DARD, Alfred L. Royce, U. S. N., has an interesting article on the results of state ownership of railways in Belgium, the country which has had the longest experience In this line and whose expe rience fhows how the system affects in dustry under the various fluctuations of commerce. The Belgian govern ment did not monopolize the carrying of merchandise and passengers, but al lowed joint stock railways much free dom* making no attempt to drive them out of the field by excessive competi tion. "The balance of ownership be tween the state and the companies has varied from time to time. In 1850 the state possessed 388 miles of line, against 166 miles belonging to the com panies. In 1865 the proportion was '^reversed, the companies having 950 rallies, against 469 miles belonging to I the government. In 1"8S4 another Change had occurred. The state owned 1,931 males, compared with 780 miles belonging to the companies. The conclusion is irresistable that, notwith standing the advantages conceded to industry, the state railways must have 1 been a fair financial success, as other wise the companies would not have f. been able to compete fer half a century iM against an antagonist which had the state purse to pull upon. In 1864, the B government first used its power to do exactly what our merchants and the railway companies do without success tliey leveled the rates down all along tile lme The minister stated that the results surpassed all expectation. The increase of traffic in the half a year was equivalent to the average increase for tV r* 6 yOars* The increase of tonnage I jfiUhe eighth year of the experiment wa$ 106 32 per cent This addition wa practically on the same mileage, the government having fifty miles extra line." W* The general results of the system during the eight years from 1856 to 1864 are thus summed up by the Bel tgjj gian minister: (1) The charges on y& ds have been lowered on an aver age by twenty-eight per cent. (2) The S I public have dispatched 2,706,600 tons. more, while they have economized more than $4,000,000 on |the cost of carriage. (3) The public nreasury^as ^realized $1,156,200 mo* after having acquired only ^S^^TiKt^^ vi mxu JN* s| FjjpttfrVSftsec '^pys1*$* ^(WISV r"**'' paid the cost o? working and mterea^of capital In the next seven y#$l$ (1864 to 1871) the goods traffic yo^ from 5,251.000 tons to 11,204,690 tontf that is to say, it more than doubled. In the following twelve years, down to 1883, it reached 22,033,347 tonsthat is to say, it doubled again. ^sT The reduction in rates proved so suc cessful that the public opinion demand ed the extension of the principle to pas senger fares. The legislature therefore delegated to the executive the power to make limited concessions. No altera tions were made for short distances that is, up to twenty-two miles. Pro visional decreases were made in the intermediate stage, between twenty-two and forty-nine miles, and large and de finite reductions were made for longer distances. In the last stage the first class fare was reduced from l,24d to 0.46d per mile, or on a distance of 155 miles from 16s. to 6s.that is, from $3 84 to $1 44. The second class was reduced in like proportion. In the ear after the reduction in Bel gium the increase of passengers in the (zone where no change was made was 2 per cent, the increase wheie the .pro visional reduction was made was 20 per cent, and where the larger and definite reduction was made it was 92 per cent. Subsequent alterations had the effect of reducing the average fares, of increas ing the number of passengers and in creasing the profits. The passengers on the state railways rose from 43,032,- 882 in 1880 to 50,465,943 in 1884. In conclusion, Mr. Royce says "Our strength in America is as yet unim paired our superiority in productive power is unquestioned and unequaled, but it is not on that account wise or prudent that we should neglect to look ahead and gather what useiul lessons we may from the experience of other nations Johnson's Universal Cyclopaedia. It has 33 departments, with an editor of the highest scholarly standing tor each. It is "THE BEST," and onlv original American Cyclopaedia. Illus trated with maps,plans, and engravings of the finest kind. More condensed than the Britanniea and more accurate than Appletons'. Contains more sub jects, is later than either Appletons' or the Butannica, and costs less than half as much. It is truly the busy man's Cyclopaedia, the articles being divided and subdivided, so that any point iy be turned to without being compelled to read the whole article, as in Apple ton's. Thousands of our greatest scholars have declared it te be "THE BEST." It is not only the BFST CY- CLOPEDIA, but it is a whole library of "universal knowledge," from the pens of the greatest scholars on earth. Two thousand of the most eminent scholars living have become responsible for the accuracy and thoroughness of the work by signing their names to the articles. It has what no other work can claimviz: FORTY OF AMERI CA'S GREATEST SCHOLARS AS EDITORS, who are responsible for the whole work. Its thoroughness and ac curacy have never been questioned. FROM BENSON J. LOSSING, LL. D., THE HISTORIAN, NEW YORK I have been acquainted with the high character of Johnson's Cyclopaedia for several years, but, having in use the latest edition of Chambers' and Apple tons', I have refrained from exchanging the latter for it until recently. Its su periority to any other work of the kind with which I am acquainted is conspic uously manifest after a brief examma nation. I am amazed at its compre hensiveness and completeness. It is an admit able epitome of the knowledge of all past ages until now and 1 can heartilv endorse the words of the Fac ulty of Yale College. "It is practically a geographical gazetteer, a biographic al dictionary, a medical and legal man- ual." The name of it its editor-in-chief (President Barnard, of Columbia Col lege) and his able assistants form a sufficient guarantee for its excellence. That guarantee is strengthened bv the assumption of the authors of all the principal articlesamong the best writers of the country their respect ive branches of learningof the accu racy of their work by having their names printed in full at the end of their productions. The mapsall brought down in their construction to the pres ent timeand all other illustrations, especially of scientific subjects, greatly enhance the intrinsic value of the work. I cannot but regard Johnson's Cyclo paedia as far more valuable as a wise instructor for a family, or for persons in any put suit, that any average library of thousands of volumes. I nave ex changed my Appletons' (1883 edition) for Johnson's Cyclopaedia. OUR CLAIMS. "It is vastly more than you can claim for it."Hon. Carroll D. Wnght. 1.
