Moran looked for a moment at Murphy, who was not, to say the least, remarkable for his good looks, and then said: "Och, -well, what Is the harrum so long as the child's healthy." London Tribune. , , FROM THE PEOPLE Letters From Readers Of The Sun On Subjects Of Interest. CHURCH AND STATE IN FRANCE Three Views Of Separation Act First Serlons Breach In Napoleon's Administrative Edifice. Messrs. Editors: One or two letters have recently appeared upon a subject which is engrossing more attention in Europe than any other, viz, the conflict between church' and state in France. In one of these letters. Rev. William B. Starr, pastor of Corpus Chrlstl Church, of this city, refers to the lectures of Mr. John E. C. Bodley before the Royal Institute In London as giving a temperate contribution toward an understanding of the case, Mr. Bodley having spent years in France, being a corresponding member of the Institute of France and having embodied in these lectures his profound 6tudy of the situation. As these most Interesting lectures may not be generally accessible, the following summing up of the conclusions to which his long and profound study has led him may not be without interest to some of the readers of The Sun. In his preface to the lectures, Mr. Bodley says : "Only two things seem to be certain: One Is that the abrogation of the Concordat is the first serious breach made in the administrative fabric constructed by Napoleon, which for over a century has preserved France froni anarchy through three revolutions and seven changes of regime. The other is that the Separation law, though the work of antf-clerlcals, is an ultramontane act. For the first time since the French people became a nation, the Pope is the absolute master of the bishops and clergy of France. Galllcanlsm, long declining, has received its final death blow, and Pius X himself sang Its solemn obsequies on Quinquageslma Sunday, when in his basilica of St. Peter's at Rome he consecrated the first batch of 14 non-concor-datory bishops, forming one-sixth of the entire French episcopate blng, it is said, the largest number admitted at one time to the pastoral office since the Day of Pentecost, when it was conferred on 12 overseers of an unestablished church. " The conclusion of his second lecture Is In the following words : "There are three classes of commentary made upon it by French politicians, who represent the average opinion of the nation. Many Moderate Republicans, together with the survivors of the old Liberal and the like-minded members of the Right, regard the law as an act of repression Intended to starve, religion out of the land and aimed against religious liberty. This they consider was best safeguarded by the Concordat, which likewise was an admirable instrument for subordinating the spiritual power to the temporal in the state. "There Is, then, the Governmental vlew held by the more moderate supporters of the Ministry which passed the law, and of M. Fallieres when he was elected President of the Republic a month after Its enactment, as well as by a very small minority of the clergy. The line that they take is that circumstances had made the relations between the French Government and the Vatican Intolerable, so that a rupture could not be avoided. It was better, therefore, for everybody that separation, having become inevitable, should be effected before new irritation should provoke a less conciliatory act than they claim the law to be. They say that it is & law which restores to the church its nominations and its councils ; which leaves to the faithful the indefinite enjoyment of their places of worship ; which regulates in an equitable manner the devolution of ecclesiastical property ; which authorizes the constitution of private budgets of public worship and permits rich associations to go to the aid of poor parishes ; which, by its transitory arrangements in the matter of pensions, makes the change gradual for ministers of long service ; which contains no vexatious regulations as to ecclesiastical costume or processions this, they say, is not a measure which can be called a law of violence, of persecution and of natred. "The third view is that taken by certain philosophical radicals, some of whom are too skeptical to be sectarian in their anti-clericalism. Their view was set forth by M. Clemenceau in a remarkable speech in the Senate on November 23, 1905. He declared that the Chamber of Deputies, while professing to desire the denunciation of the Concordat, had acted entirely In a concor-datory spirit; that the sole preoccupation of the promoters of the bill was to conjure two dangers the peril which threatened the state If It renounced its prerogatives and the peril menacing the church if those prerogatives were not surrendered to it. The real peril, M. Clemenceau declared, was that of maintaining a system of privilege for the authority of Rome in a regime of liberty. "I will not decide on the respective justice of these three views. What seems to me the most anomalous feature of the act is that it is not a law of separation of church and state. It is a law of re-establishment, under which the church will eventually lose a revenue of nearly 2,-000,000, receiving in compensation the right to nominate its own bishops, who in turn will have the privilege of meeting In synods and councils. 'With a great sum obtained and this freedom might be the motto to set up in their convocation house, if, indeed, it was freedom that they had procured. But It is not real liberty. The concordatory spirit to which M, Clemenceau refers is visible in every line of the new act. The difference between it and the statute, or treaty, of 1801, under which church and state have lived in peace in France for a century, is that the Concordat was the work of a stupendous genius, and the Separation law of ordinary mortal men It is the first Important breach made In the grand administrative edifice reared by Napoleon in his reconstruction of France after the revolution, which has survived a century of revolution and changes of regime, as the permanent framework of stable government." . J. S. B. Hodges. St. Denis, Md. Some Thins:. That Are Needed. Messrs. Editors: Our race has some ministers, lawyers. IZfJfL":0 are eduted Christians, ladies and gentlemen and are doing much to elevate the race mentallv morally, industrially and spiritually. We need more of them. These of whom we speak are not afraid to speak their convictions for ths good of the people, and willingly unite with and support any and all legal and reasonable measures for the improvement of all the people and seek all possible openings to instruct and. aid our race to rise in the scale of morals, general intelligence and usefulness. But there are others. There are those among us who are well Informed, but who lack the moral courage, and others who- lack the moral character to uncover crime. They Bhield vice, immorality, drunkenness and all that is low and mean. While there are many who are honest. Indiistrinno bta nn.vi though ignorant, there still are hordes of ignorant ana vicious classes that need to be managed. These facts apply especially to this city (Baltimore) and State. There are needed more among our own race (colored) who are willing to see those punished who are guilty instead of shielding them from the law or otherwise. We need to defend character and principles of right GEMS FROM UTSCRIPTIOX OX THE MOJTUMEJXT TO A NEWPOTJIfDLAJfD DOG. Bx Loed Bxnoir. When some proud son of man returns to earth Unknown to glory, but upheld by birth, The sculptor's art exhausts the pomp of woe And storied urns record who rests below;' When all Is done npon the tomb Is seen, . Not what he was, but what he should have been. But the poor dog, in life the firmest friend, . The first to welcome, foremost to defend. Whose honest heart is still hia master's own Who labors, fights, lives, breathes for him alone, Unhonor'd falls, unnoticed all his worth, Denied In heaven the soul he held on earth; While man, vain In sectl hopes to be forgiven. And claims himself a sole, exclusive heaven. O man, thou feeble tenant of an hour. Debased by slavery or corrupt by power, Who knows thee well must quit thee with disgust, Degraded mass of animated dust! Thy love Is lust, thy friendship all a cheat. Thy smiles hypocrisy, thy words deceit! By nature vile, ennobled but by name, Each kindred brute might bid thee blush for shame, - Te who, perchance, behold this simple urn, Pass on It honors none you wish to mourn; To mark a friend's remains these stones arise; I never knew but one and here he lies! from our pulpits. A very sad, but true, fact Is that, as a rule, If a minister or educator dares to point out the low traits, censure the. existing evils and advise their eradication from among us, he is soon practically shut out; he Is not wanted in most places. So long as these things continue the race must lose ground. The better classes among us should agree and unite with .any and all persons and uphold all measures that tend to honesty, frugality, morality and industry. The thriftless, worthless, low and vicious must be done away with. We don't need them. Instead of encouraging them by silence, excuses or openly defending them which is generally done by pen and voice and sheltering them from justice, as is now the case, we. should withhold from such, expose their evil and allow them to stand the results of their own sins. Our street corners and alleys are crowded with worthless, brutal, drunken, vicious classes who do not and who will not work, but, instead, are supported by poor, silly women, who wort for them and live Illicitly with them and take their abuse besides. This Is how the character of our women and girl-children Is being destroyed. .These are truths that cannot be denied. Shame on a profession of morality I In dustrial Institutions are needed not fakes that are doing nothing that will teach honest labor among us. Honest labor is becoming among , us a lost art. Probably one-half of the people among us are shunning honest labor, while there are opportunities on every side for all who desire to fill them and still better positions lor such as are willing to prepare thoroughly. Our colored women crowd the barrooms from year to year; their 12 and 18 year old girls do the same; their virtue Is made market of and prostitution instilled in our children thereby. Daily our courts are filled with such, while the others sit still and complain if vice Is censured. Many church members professing Christianity of course they are not Christians are Bald to be living illicitly together, and raising families in many instances, while the pastors know the situation, but seem afraid to mention the facts where they will count. Can a race prosper while such rottenness exists? Drunkenness, murders, thefta, assaults, divorces and general prostitution are a few of the crimes that are common among us here. Shall we continue to stand it? ' Will anyone dare to excuse it? These facts are gathered during a period of mora than four years, and from authentic sources- Christians, brethren, officials, what can we do? Rev. A. Manship Molock, Bible Training School, 915 North Vincent street, city. As To "The Clansman." Messrs. Editors : I am glad to see that there is at least one newspaper in this city that gave "The Clansmen" the proper credit it deserves and is not afraid to stand for white man's supremacy, and not be like our leading evening paper, devote almost an entire column in an editorial In denouncing Thomas Dixon, Jr., and his play, accusing one of the leading newspapers of the State of Georgia of being almost entirely responsible In bringing about the recent race riot there. It Is getting beyond endurance when a man cannot write a play or book that would have some tendency to ruffle the feelings of the negro, even though it be founded on facts, without being denounced as something awful by some of our leading newspapers, but the large audiences that greeted the play at each performance, and the spirit with which It was received proves that the people are to Judge for themselves what suits them without aid from some newspapers. The negro can do almost anything and the same newspapers do not publish one editorial denouncing them. Take that excursion that was run to Ocean City a few days ago when the citizens of that place were compelled to tell the railroad company if they ran any more excursions they would meet It with a vigilance committee. Tike that Incident on the Emory Grove car recently and a thousand and one others, and not one word in denunication. But Just reverse these conditions, and, oh ! horrors, they would rise up in their righteous Indignation. The Sun never printed anything more true than when it says "The Clansmen" will be re-enacted in a different way, perhaps, but with the same result that water will not run np hill ; that black can never be white and that white can never be black. May The Sun forever continue to stand for white man's rights and white man s supremacy. Anglo-Saxon. The Sokol Amerielcy. Messrs. Editors: I have recently received a copy of your Sunday edition, dated September 16, 1906, where I have found a very bitter and alto gether not deserved attack upon our pub' lication, the Sokol Amerlky, ofllcial paper of the United Bohemian Gymnastic Asso ciation in the United States. We are class! fled, according to your informer, under the heading "Baltimore's Prosperous Colony of Bohemians" with the most dangerous journals, "Immoral" and "heretical," or a conspicuous example of an anti-religious paper printed in New York, etc., being of objectionable character, not fit to be clrcu lated In the mails, etc. We do not deny that we are law-abiding citizens of the United States, free and strong in body and mind, the complete health of our people, their education and progress being our greatest aim. We do not deny that we are free-thinkers, but we must emphatically protest against such and similar Insinuations as stated above and published in your article; and ask you as the colleagues of the pen to do us Jus tice and to the organization of our Sokols, the members of which have carried the first prize not long ago at the celebration and Jubilee of the great city of Baltimore, being the best-trained body in your procession. And now the same" people and their paper are attacked In such a way because somebody somewhere told your reporter so and eo. ) I do not know If such and Bimilar attacks are In accordance with the title of the respective article and, knowing your informer personally, would not consider It worthy of reply ; but here is an attack upon our official organ, of which I have the honor to be the managing editor, and as such I would like to state the following facts : Our organization of Sokols, the Bohemian gymnasts in this country, has more than 5,000 members, besides two other organizations numbering totally 12,000, including the ladies' and children's classes, besides the Slovaks, Polish and Croatian organizations, with, about 8,000 members, and the great organization of our brethren in the old country, Bohemians and Slavs, totally about 100,000 Sokols. The Baltimore local society has about 200 members, with ladies' and children's classes. These great organizations for healthy development of the body and mind have more than 28 Journals of their own and their own technical literature for educating purposes only, our aim being to better the conditions of our people socially and in such a way that they would be strong In supporting all free institutions, especially in this free country. The Sokols, and our brethren In Baltimore specially, have supported for at least 80 years In this country everything which was for the betterment of man. They gave freely to those who needed help ; they gave equal rights to the women In their national association, and, being progressive, in time of need they stood always loyal, to the Stars and Stripes, offering their sons' blood and lives to the Union when called upon tn the last struggle In THE POETS Cuba and the Philippines. They supported every national undertaking and gave willingly to the good work of higher education. Besides the German gymnastic societies, Turners," the Sokols are the oldest organ izations in the United States that have made it a special object to develop the human body by means of regular and systematic training. What is the meaning of the name Sokol? Translated literally it gives us the name of a bird a falcon, the symbol of the swift, active and free, the symbol of those who believe in education, progress, the per fect maintenance of health of the individual and a strong nation under the one banner of Stars and Stripes to whom free thought, with the freedom of all and privileges to none, is the most sacred duty. We have been most active in the education of our children and our physical culture work from the standpoint of systematic exercise ever since our grand leaders Fuegner and Tyrs gave us the Impetus In the old country before 1860 in Prague. Our societies are found in every city in Bohemia and in every Bohemian settlement in the cities and all parts of the United States, and we are proud to state that we are stronger every year and, like the Germans, are giving to . this country the best material in strength and citizenship. Our brethren in this country, In Bplte of all the obstacles and discouragements of the different churches, denominations and sects, when they first met In St. Louis about 45 years ago and founded the first Sokol society In the United States, were pioneers of. dawning liberty for the people of their country, some of theTn being banished and others hoping for better days in this country of the free. Such was the first material of ours. No wonder that the social position of the Sokols in the Bohemian population Is a leading one, that the accumulated energy often has to Bhow, if not always, and that the Sokols stood foremost whenever and wherever rational ideas and .principles moved the public minds. Their open and nnrestrained opposition to slavery, superstition, predomination of any class of people In this free country, a fundamental maxim In their platform, their love of freedom fostered and propagated In their schools, the recognltlQn of the personal rights in education of their Eons and daughters, with the love of fine arts, the sciences, the drama, music and mutual friendship, are a few examples of their work in their homes or gymnasiums, with all the modern equipment and all the opportunities for everyone without distinction. The societies are, therefore, not only Bohemian, but Bohemian-American, with all the alterations which might perhaps follow in a few years, if the Bohemian Immigration should cease to pour fresh blood into the veins of the organization, which in the end certainly is not encouraged by the pulpit on account of its progressive and liberal ideas. And these and similar ideas we have the honor to propagate in our paper and also to defend. Dr. J. Rudis Jicinskx. Cedar Rapids, Iowa. October 2. Ohject To Mr. Wachter's Joke. Messrs. Editors: While Mr. Frank C. Wachter, Congressman from the Third district, may think that the remarks which the Ancient Order of Hibernians in Baltimore, denounced as an Insult to the Irish race in this city should be regarded as a "joke, and while no one who knows him thinks that there was any malice in what he did say, yet those who participated in that convention represented 3,500 men and women in this municipality to whom the portion of the interview quoted was not looked upon as a "joke," and furthermore never will be so viewed. It is not too much to say that at least 9S per cent, of the real Irish who are proud of their race and who do not allow "Anglo-Saxons" or other races of Americans to be the conservators of their racial dignity, but who arrogate to themselves the right to think as they please, are of the same opinion as wer? those who composed the Hibernian convection. At best the words of Mr. Wachter were hasty, ill advised and by no means replete with reverence for the aged of the Irish race. Judged from Mr. Wachters remarks the average old "Mick, has a face like a dog. My father, from his viewpoint, was an "old Mick," and so was and is the father of every Irishman and Irish-American in this city. The Irish are a race who, like the Jews, are noted for their filial love. It is a sentiment which I am aware finds only too little favor in our American life. To be old is a crime today in our country. To be over 40 Is to be branded with the badge of Cain by the average American trust and corporation; to be gray-haired la to be as an Ishmael In our "young" country, whose liberties were dearly bought by the gray-haired patriots of the Revolution. But to respect the aged is a tradition among the Irish ; It Is a faith, it is a sentiment based upon the ideals of a poetic, a spiritual and an historic people, the oldest In civilization in the modern world. To have a sensible man, representing as he does tho Government of our common country, make such a remark is, to say the least, deplorable. That he deserves rebuke there is not a doubt No one who knows Mr. Wachter but admires his genial characteristics. I have known him from boyhood and always admired him, and do admire him. I shall continue to do so, while I reprobate the interview which is attributed to him. His words, like those of the average stage buffoon, were and are calculated to contribute to the degradation of a proud and sensitive people. For years the Ancient Order of Hibernians has been endeavoring, and in many sections of the country "has succeeded in driving from the boards the so-called "Stage Irishman," he of the green whiskers, dog-face, monkey-face, the awful nightmare which is like nothing In the sea, the earth nor the air, of which God's Kingdom possesses not a prototype, a thing fit for the realms of nightmares and for the caves of the gnomes and fiends. This monstrosity, coined through a paucity of wit upon the part of the molders of stage "wit" and "humor" and "ideas" has done much to degrade and to humiliate the Irishman In the eyes of the American public, to Ive even the Irish-American a contempt for the Gael. The order has taken hold of the condition boldly and has, In spite of the "Influence" of the stage managers and the power of the press, driven him to the tall timbers. It is the right of the Irish to do this, and It is no other man's right who is not Irish to dispute their right to be the conservators of their own racial dignity. Anyhow, we do not allow the right, and that is the end of it, no matter what othor classes of "Americans" may think of the situation. Therefore we regard Mr. Wach-ter's "break as pernicious in the effect it may have had upon the average American mind. It Is perfectly useless for other persons who are not Irish to laugh, to disparage, to try to minimize the effect of ridicule upon the Irish. The Irish know how their race has been saddled with degradation in this land through the education of the "stage," the literary rot called "Dooleyism" and similar "humor" which Is called the intellectual novelty of contemporary American life. God save the mark ! The Mibernians have gone Into this work and they intend to stay in It, whether press, forum or other Influences are against it or not It Is not funny to us. We are the mostwltty of races and have done more to make the world laugh than any other. Our Sheridan, our Goldsmith, our Knowles have contributed the best comedies ever written In the tongue of the "Angry Saxon," to the enjoyment of the world, but we object to lampoons and reflections upon our race, either from friend or foe. And we have that right D. J. Sccl.lt, State Secretary Ancient Order of Hibernians. The Mosquito Appropriation. Messrs. Editors: . Of all the many useless acts of the City Council of Baltimore and consequent waste of the taxpayers' money perhaps there never was one so useless as the one now before the City Council for the destruction of the mosquitoes of Baltimore. The most that has been said and written about the pest has no better foundation than mere hearsay, made on insufficient observation or none at all, especially as to their places of breeding and migration. From some of these writers one would conclude that the little tin cans of water and water-holding depressions In the back yard are the chief, if not the only, places of breeding, and with their destruction there is an everlasting end to the pest, since there are no other places for them to breed and none will migrate from their native homes to take their places. That these representations have no foundation In fact may be proved by anyone who will place a vessel of water In the yard and let it remain for a few months or a year, examining it frequently with a microscope. . After five years of such examination I have failed to discover a single germ or mosquito and X presume others would not be more successful. As to their nonmlgratory character, we have no means of knowing anything whatever; therefore, all that has been said on that subject is wild guessing and worthless aa to tha formation of a conclusion of any value. But we know., they., are ,waf tel from 4laoa -to place by every breath of wind, as one may see by placing himself in a level, open place where they are numerous, when he will see clouds of them being blown along to other places by the gentle southeast wind, or he may coast along the Tangier or Smith's Island and see clouds of them being wafted from these, their native homes, to distant points up the Chesapeake to Smith's Point, Point Lookout, Cedar Point and Poplar Island and Baltimore, If the wind continues light and long enough. Therefore, to clear Baltimore of them it is absolutely necessary to begin the work at Cape Henry and extend it all over the eastern counties of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia and New Jersey to Jersey City, the native" homes of these pests, which would require all the coal oil of the world to affect even fairly well. The only practical and useful measure, and all that 6hould be thought .of, is the clearing of the banks of the streams which run through and along the city of their undergrowth' and fill up the marsh ponds and holes about the Spring Gardens and Westport and Curtis bay. All else will be labor lost and the taxpayers money wasted, for the taxpayer has had quite enough of costly worthless experimentation. Medicos. Denies Hazing At V. 91. I. Messrs. Editors : Numerous reports have been circulated by the press to the effect that hazing of new cadets at the Virginia Military Institute this fall has been both exceptionally severe and cruel. According to these rumors, which appear to have emanated from Lynchburg reports, new cadets are knocked to the floor and beaten over head and shoulders with bayonets and broomsticks, often into unconsciousness. Such reports are utter falsehoods, absolutely without foundation. No cadet has been beaten across the head and shoulders or has been knocked into unconsciousness, as has been reported, and neither are new cadets forced to shine the shoes of an upper classman, as a second rumor had it Any old cadet who forced a new cadet to ehine the shoes of the former would In every case be entirely shunned by his classmates. These reports have been bo various and are bo injurious to the heretofore excellent reputation of the school that strenuous measures are now being taken to pervent all hazing. Guards constantly pace to and fro past the doors of the new cadets in the barracks and officers are alert everywhere. The penalty is the severest and already there have been three dismissals. No cadet, old or new, is allowed under any circumstances to enter the rooms of the others excepting-by permission of the officer of the day, and all cadets caught breaking this rule are Immediately placed under arrest According to very reliable Information there is no hazing whatever at present going on in the school, and both old and new cadets are indignant over the rumors. P. Lexington, Va., October 2. Should Fay For Their Blunder. Messrs. Editors : The late episode In connection with School No. 87, wherein the costly mural decorations so generously bestowed by our noble art association for educational purposes were destroyed by stupid painters, reveals a state of affairs in striking contrast with the blare and boast of our jubilee as an up-to-date progressive city. The stigma which it fixes upon our6chool authorities can never be wiped out and is another emphatic testimony against modern political methods municipally applied. Of course, those painters (?) were "Johnnie on the Spot" at elections and their only interest in the work done was drawing their pay, and whether it was destroying costly works of art or painting exquisite bronzes "green" or scraping a ceiling off on the carpet and tramping the debris in with their feet, it mattered not to them as either was profitable. That anyone worthy of the name of a painter could make such a blunder passes belief and is a gross reflection upon a noble and worthy craft I presume they were painters after the order of an old sign I noticed years ago in South Baltimore z "Whitewashin in all colors done here by John Johnsin." Until this pestilential Bystem of corrupt politics is broken up in our city administration we shall be always thus liable to be made ridiculous abroad. The responsible parties should be made to restore the work their stupid workmen destroyed from their private purse. A Lover of Aht. Confederate Women's Home. Messrs. Editors: The managers and the ladies in the newly established Confederate Women's Home at 1020 Linden avenue express their deep gratification and thanks for the liberal donations which have been so generously given them, which Is only another evidence of the noble charity that moves the hearts of Baltimoreans when occasion presents. May these gifts so cheerfully and bounteously bestowed be the foundation and upbuilding of a home in every sense for the Confederate widow to which each donor may proudly point in after years and feel that this work of charity was a part of their life's work to make others happy. Mas. William M. Wells. The Fire Memorial. Messrs. Editors: We Bee many ideas of late In regard to erecting a memorial of the great fire. Would it not be well to make it a useful and paying one? I would suggest to connect the middle section of our city, east and west, by a direct street say Franklin street cut through into Old Town by building a bridge similar to the North or Cedar avenue structure, built of concrete. Begin the same at the cdrner of Franklin and St Paul, bring It on a line with the elevated railway on North street to and over the Falls and Western Maryland road and down by easy grade to Forrest or Gay streets. Citizen. The Late Daniel Henderson. Messrs. Editors: Before me as I write is a copy of Daniel Henderson's "A Bit Bookie of Verse." Ha gave it to me December 0, 1905, and on the fly-leaf wrote : "The world has never too much sunshine." And now he has gone to the land where it is all sunshine. I open the bookie at random and find these words. Please publish them : God's in tho world For all its bustle and din-God's in tho world For all its sorrow and eln God's In tho world Shaping a world to be; Come ye apart a trhllo Out of tho world and sea. And now he sees face to face, so sweet, so pure, so noble a soul, so near he lived to Nature, tender and true we will all miss him. It is. very sweet to know that before he went home to Heaven he had a visit to the land he loved so well. Ruxton, Md. Suysmxa Hawks. No Counterfeits On ''Busted" Banks Messrs. Editors: Your appropriate editorial , reminds me of something that happened about 80 years ago. Two persons, one a worldly man and the other a brother of the church, were discussing the points in a controversy they had over a business matter. The worldly man was showing, the brother the bad points of the brothers and named several brothers who were more or less found wanting. As the brother knew all of them, he was compelled to acknowledge all that was said by the worldly man. In replying to the worldly man, while admitting the truth of particular Instances clted.he wound up the discussion thus : "You never Been a counterfeit on a busted bank, did you?" It was more the force of the reply than the grammar that, caused the worldly man to subside. S. Pleased With An Editorial. Messrs. Editors : All honor to The Scn for its splendid editorial on "Religious Bank Wreckers." Such an article in a secular paper is bound to do some good. It is a good sermon for those prejudiced against religion and also refreshing for the pious. Sincerely yours, J. H. Poetteb. Pastor of the Reformed Church, Walnut Creek, Ohio. The Bohemians. Messrs. Editors: The letter defending the Bohemians did not Include or mean Father nornung, because, according to ecclesiastical law, a Catholic priest Is not a man-ordalned preacher. The general standard of the New York Truth-Seeker everyone interested should decide for himself. The communication on the Bohemians In Thb Sun September 21, signed T. G.," could be answered very nicely. The general character of the writer whom "T. G." mentioned Is open for public Inspection every day (week days), and you will find his earthly quarters well filled.

THE DEVIL IN WASHINGTON The devil came up from his realm below To Washington city some time ago A blistering, blazing summer day. With Congress and President both away. It matters not Just In what month and yeart Though historians all on that point are clear. 'Tm np here on business a little while.' -He said to a journal, with quiet smile. "When Congress and President both are here My interests are safe and I've naught to fear. In stirring up mischief and making strife They are fully my equals, upon my life. As agents of mine they are hard to beat. And never In winter or summer heat Allow an occasion to pass them by Of playing the devil as well as I."
