Ave nave no sympathy with that form of criticism which discovers weakness in the whole ecclesiastical body because here and there a pulpit has been converted into a stage on -which capers and spouts his vapid nothings some brain less mountebank. Nor do we believe that the gospel of "sweetness and light" has supplanted that which the Master taught under Judean skies, by the shore of Galilee, or on the mountain side. The same blessed heaven bends over the sons and daughters of men now, as it did then ; the same hell of which fie spoke, remains, for the same necessity for it is now as then. But where are the causes for this carnival of crime? We believe they are to be found in society, and in the lax administration of the laws. No matter how dark the deed, how bloody the hand of the perpetrator of it, there are those who, with a disgust ing and distorted sentimentalism, palliate the one and grasp the other. Women fill the cells of these wretches with dainty offerings of flowers, fur nish them with rare tid bits, and soothe their days of loneliness by their sweetest smiles and liveliest talk. No matter how enormous the Perhaps the graceful thing for us to privilege of making a speech. ;'He do would be to take back what we ; will hurt the party," declared the said about the strength of the pro hibition movement in St. Loui3. We were led to say that it was ranch stronger there than people generally believed, by a statement in one of the WHERE IS THE FAULT? The pessimist finds much to war rant his dolorous growl, in the epi demic of crime which has been,and is jet, sweeping over the country. We mnst admit that horror on horrors swiftly follow, and crime follows crime 37ith ghastly frequency. Hardly a day passes without the telegraph bringing to us the sickening details of some brutal deed, wherein lust, jeal ousy, or passion crazed, plays the role of cruel butcher of woman or child or innocent man. Our own state to-day holds within tvro jails three young men, before whom will soon rise the hideous lorm of the gallows, and for whom awaits the ignominious death -of a felon, as they shall swing into -eternity as the penalty for crimes as oloody, as cruel, as black and un warranted as ever depravity conceiv ed or committed. There is no need lo point out in detail these ghastly crimes which startle the country from J&ame to California and from the northern boundary to the extreme southern coast line. We Are not compelled to back up the as sertion that never before in the .liistory of this country has crime in most horrible forms stalked so freely and tmwhipt of justice, as it does to day, by placing the murdered victims "before our readers. The terrible fact jemains, in spite of the assertions of Ihe optimist that the world, society, humanity is getting better under the benign and uplifting teachings of the gospel, that never in Christian America, even in Puritan New Eng land, was there so much crime of the basest and most damnable character as there is in these days of grace, light and pulpit ministrations. But let no one suppise that we charge the church, directly or indi rectly, with any responsibility for this -.era of blood and rapine. We believe the pulpit is, with rare exceptions, as devoted, as loyal, as brave, as aggressive against sin, to-day, as it iraa in the days of Paul, Savonarolo, crime the criminal arouses the sympathy and ministrations of numberless women, who never saw him before he was placed behind the bars. And men stand up for these devils and make alt manner of excuses for them, and in many wavs attempt to turn the tide of popular opinion iu their behalf! This is what society does to ncrease the list of these horrible deeds. And then the failure of the courts to mete out lustice is another cause. "Lawyers" said a judge re cently, "are paid to paint devils as angels of purity." If this is true, then lawyers who do this are enemies to society, and deseive the punish ment due the man who deliberately forces the jail door and liberates the criminal. The trouble is there are too many large loop holes, called technicalities, in the meshes of the criminal law, through which the smart," but totally unscrupulous, lawTer pulls his innocent (?) client to be turned loose on society as a human hyena, only awaiting opportunity to again strike down an innocent victim. And in doing this, in robbing justice of her rights, society ha3 been made the victim, law has been cheated, se curity of life and property jeopardiz ed, and a premium placed on murder, rape, arson, and every other crime. Away with the maudlin sentimental ism and these "smart" lawyers and timid courts. papers of that city, to the effect that some of the most prominent citizens had signed a call for a meeting to ratifiy the nomination of Dr. Brooks for governor. Well, the time for holding the meeting rolled around, but it was not held. The Post-Dii-patch tells the story in these words: "The strength of the prohibition movement in St. Louis may be in ferred from the fact that a meeting extensively advertised to be held last night was postponed sine die, simply because nobody met. The call for the meeting was well signed. Among the names were some of sufficient prominence to ju3tify a reasonable expectation of an audience, but the fact was that nobody cared to go. There are a great many people in St. Louis, a3 there are throughout Missouri,, who are temperance people, but who object to prohibition being made a political issue at the presen t . . r . m i I committee or arrangements, , it ne is al to wed to spout hi3 vapid nothings."

Father Graham, who for years labored "with untiring zeal in this city in the service of his blas ter and for the highest welfare of his flock. Father Graham is now in St. Joe, where, in addition to his priestly duties, he edits the Catholic Tribune. He is no politician, but as a Catholic and as a man, lov ng liberty and hating tyranny, he feels it his duty to boldly wan his Catholic country men against affiliating with that party which once attempted to crush the Catholic church in Missouri. Cath olics, as a rule, are democrate. Why ? Because democracy has always been the champion of religious liberty, and when the fanatics of NewT Eng land were torturing people on account of religious convictions, the democrat ic party made their cause its cause. But not to indulge in too much his tory, we are at a loss to inow how a Catholic "who lived in Missouri dur ing the days of persecution when priests were put in prison by repub lican provost marshals when com munion could not be given by a priest who would not perjure himself when to be a Catholic was regarded as prima facie evidence of treason we say it is incomprehensible to us how a true Catholic who went through this ordeal in Missouri, when the re publican party had power, can be anything but a democrat now.

It is not only a question of com petency, but one of dollars and cents.

Every girl ought to know how to make good coffee, remarked the Rev. Alfred Taylor of New York. "Bad coffee," he says, "has made many bad men. Bad coffee has ruined many homes. Bad cofiee has driven many husbands, and fathers, to the drinking dens, where they picked up habits of drunkenness. The girl has a great deal to do with it." From revelations made within the past week, we feel warranted in say ing that the field for active minis terial labors has been greatly enlarged. That a home for the "scarlet woman" has been unearthed next door to one of our churches indicates the need of a more vigorous fight against more than one form of evil.

The explosion this afternoon did considerable damage to the windows in the vicinity of the parliament house. Almost all tae windows in the house itself in the section where the ex plosion occurred, are shattered. Mer tel, a workman, and Charlebvys, the contractor, were the only per sons injured and those only slightly. The damage by the first explosion is con siderable. A hole about twelve feet long by five feet wide was blown out of the wall ot the third story direct'y over the right hand entrance to the assembly clum ber and near the place where the speaker's chair is situated. The sacond explosion occurred in the northeast corner of the s ime building. The corner stone forming the support of the building is badly bulaed and it is doubtful if it can be repaired with out letting down the whole wall.
