So much unfavorable com

regarding the venomous edito

we herewith present it to our
lo-morrow never readers to show how easy it is
for an ass to kick a dead lion.
The American, Jaa. 12: "He was a
trnckllng demagogue whose selfishness
amounted to pollution ; he was an au-
tocrat who used power to wreck per-
sonal revenge; he was mean and malig-
nant, a hangman from prejudice, the in-
aulierof women, a braggadocio, a trick-
ster and a scoundrel whose heart was
as black as the smoke from the coals
that are now scorching his soul.
"If there l>e a future of peace in store
for lien Itutler after bis entrance upon
eternity, then there is no heaven and
the Bible is a lie. If hell be oaly as
black as the good book describes It,
then there are not the degrees of pun-
ishment in which some Christians so
firmly believe, fie has gone, and from
the sentence which has already been
passed upon him there is no appeal.
He is already so deep down in the pit
of everlasting doom that he coskli't

Blaine's tender eulogy of
Garfield just ten years ago is
recalled with pathetic interest
now. It was delivered in the
House of Representatives be-
fore both housee of Congress,
and it closed with this eloquent
peroration, picturing Garfield's
"As the end drew near his craving
for the sea returned. The stately man-
sion of power had been to him the
wearieome hospital of pain, and he
begged to be taken from its prison
walls, from its oppressive, stifling air*
from its homelessness and its hopeless-
ness. Gently, silently, the love of a
great people bore the pale sufferer h
the longed-for healing of the sea, :
live or to die, as Qo&should wiU, with-
in sight of its heaving billows, within
sound of Its manifold voice. With wan-
fevered face tenderly lifted to the cool-
ing breeze,be looked out wistfully npon
the sea's changing wonders, on its fair
sails whitening In th« morning light,
on its restless waves rolling «horewa.\l
to break and die heswath the noondey
sun, on the red cloads of evening arch-
ing low to the horizon,« - the serene
and shining pathway of the stars. Let
us think that his dying eyes read a
mystic meaning which only the rapt
and parting soul may know. Let us
believe that In the silence of the reced-
ing world he heaid the great waves
breaking on a further shore, and felt
already upon his brow the breath of
the eternal morning."

spiritual germ. He admitted
for argument's sake the theory
of evolution. It only proved
the "npward and onward"

new wonders and powers of the

P. M. a good-sized crowd of
people's party advocates met
in the court house for the pur-
pose of electing officers for the
next two years. After the meet-

the crowd. His speech was
well received. His hits were
regarded as being <(straight

He ooutended that there was
a law of nature that taught hu-

eyery stage of civilisation -from
the earliest existence to the
preeeni time, right from wrong;
that this moral law ia implant
ed in the breast of the barbar-
ian and the civilised. He was
convinced of the fact that this
human instinct, aided, howev-
er much, by human law was
not capable of freeing man
from the law af "sin and
death." It requires divine in-
tervention or a new spiritual
principle instilled in the hu-
man heart to mate nobler de-
sftrus and rains us above the
