The Postvillc Weekly Review! *0MVI1LS, SATDAT, JAN. 16. W. N. feUfeblOtt, Xditor. Entered at the poslofficc at Poslville an stcond-etass matter. TWO VIXWB OF IT. The Manthosttr Frew, spaaklng of ^he proper notion of lite r«publlc»o« in lh« Iowa legislature now in •cation, on prohibition, says: ••If tho republican party, in obifdl- enco to the demands of the few hundred! of thoee who ere oppoted to prohibition, shell conclude to repeel the prohibitory lew. It will, without doubt, bring beck to lie suppotl the lieenie republicans. But whet i» to become of thet Urge body of republicene who •re opposod to the trefflc in whleky, end compoee the grand army of lowe republieanlsm? Doee anybody boliore the perty would profit by exchanging ihera for Ihe anil-prohibitionists? It may be thought thet the prohibition republican* would etill edhere to tho party. But would they bo more likely to vote against their convictions than have boon those republicans who believe In license? These are questions that must bo considered, before any settled line ef action Is resolved upon. Laving aside the meral aspect* of the case', is it best, at n matter of political expedience, to surrender to the saloon bscauso enough republicans believe in whisky to give tho state for a time at loast, to the supporter* of the liquor traffic?" Iiro. Kaon, who is a consistent prohibitionist and an able editor withal, should bear in mind a few plain propositions. Whon ho speaks a'jout Ihe "few hundreds" of repablloans who are opposed to prohibition to-day, he is porpetrating a Imge joke. Are thoro only a "few hundreds" botwecn the 70,010 republican plurality once in the state, and the 8,000 democratic plurality now l« the state? And this Is not all. Far more than n "few hundrods" of republican!) who are and always havo beon anti-prohibitionists, have not even yet voted anything else bat a republican ticket. They have not deemwd the lornl quostlon of prohibition tho paramount Isstio, and hence continued to vote with the party under mental protect as to this issue. Should tho question become disconroeted freer politics thonxands of them would voto their convictions. Itut even that class of anti-prohibitionists who have finally gono over to the democratic party did not do so at once. They gradually dropped off from yoar to year, as they found that nothing was done either to change or enforco tho Uw. Now in the event that prohibition should bo reponlud and Local option take its place, will the prohibitionists do the same? Should the- prohibitionists do as the Press infers that they will, it will be easy to tigure out just how many prohibitionists there really are in the state, which would be at least some satisfaction. But tho case would stand altogether different with the third party prohlbi liomsts than with the anti-prohibition ists who left the republican party and went ovor to the domocrats. Thay knew that by going to tho democrats they could insure the repeal of tho law and thus realize their wishes; while on the other hand no third party prohibitionist hopes to secure prohibition by going into a third party. All he hopes to do Is to perpetuate domocratlo con trol from pure splto—certainly not n very commendable christian or moral course. To us tliero can be no question but should the antl-prohlbitlon republicans return to the party fold the party would again be invinoiblo, notwlth standing the few thousand cranks that put prohibition ahead of party, and almost ahead of their soul's salvation, Would go Into a third party. Suoh men have no business in any parly of the poople. They have done more harm to temperance than all ite onemies have, and everywhere they liaye been tho foe of the republican party. They clearly beat Blaine for the presidency in 1884 and while not aoting independently in this state, they have so manipulated tho party as to overwholiu it. And oven if the party is to be beaten per- laanently in this state by the adoption of looal option, it can be no worse beaten than It is now under prohibition, and in that ooudlllon the parly will aot be acting a Ho, as it has been for tan years past, pretending to favor prohibition when it really did not. Nobody proposes to "surrender In the saloon." It would be idle to talk •bout • city surrendering to an airuy when that army had been In peaoeable possession cf that city for eight years! If there is any locality in tho state that dop't want saloons (and we hope there •re a great many suoh localities) there is nothing in looal option to prevent them from having prohibition and enforcing it, even better than they do low. In conclusion there never will be as good a time to get a good and stringent local option license law as the prosont, when on* house is republican. No slip -shod law can pass this legislature. ' But If nothing Is done at this session, two years hence both houses will bo so overwhelrolugly democratic as to bo able to pass any law the saloons may demand. On this account, if far nothing else, this legislation should be had at this session. TUB Gate City last week gar* an exhaustive artiole from the constitutional standpoiutou tko Brioe senatorial quostlon, taking the ground that the seeate bus no constitutional court* except to deolaro Brloe'tieat vacant. The faot that the legislature would; again elect him kas no bearing op the c*». Ha |f iuelllgiNe, aud .no matter -hhw often he plight Lo olq^ted , tyh would not gore the cQMillution*! IpeJIK CMjwt afford, to fall ID ihe) dtaehn.tyv of, IM (lityr. Mr Mrlct If qoi, and bu not United Stales sonalor from that state. He was elected at the behest of the Wall street monopoly contingent, the tame that Standard Oil Payne was, although the latter' had the merit of being a eitlzen of Ohio. It Is a sad commentary on the moral stamina of any party when it, in violation of the plalu provisions of the organic law of the land, will proceed to elect a man to a high position who is inelliglble. It is in direct line, however, with that party's control of the south in absolute violation of tho constitution, and of its late *toal of the senate in New York. A government may exist fur a' while with such high handed outrages uopun- ishod, but there is • day of terrible reckoning in the future, as there was in the case of slavory. "The mills of the gods grind slowly but they grind exceeding fine." If these things are to continue it is a hollow mockery to term this a christian nation, or oven the high wator mark of civilization. That country is most civilized and enlightened where law is most respected and obeyed. Care should first bo taken to adopt no laws not in harmony wild the wishes of the poople, for the people are the supreme power, and whon they are thus adoptod they should be rigidly enforced In high and low places alike. JIDITOK Geo. Wm per'e Weokly, has a struggling with his clivitles with Senator Curtis, of liar hard time of it mugwump pro Hill suprome dlcU'.or, not only in New York but ie tko democratic party of the nation. And the worst feature of it is for Geo. Wm. that It is not so intteh Hill aflor all as it is Tammany, against which ho has for so many years trained his gnns. Mr. Curtis should be an old enoegh politieian by this time to know that there is no hall way, or mugwump ground in politics. Tho moment he bolted the nomination of Blaine in 1884 he ceased to be a republican, and to all intents and purposos became a democrat, and k* knew just what that raoaut in New York. To bo a democrat in New York is to be allied to Tammany, the worst and most corrupt political organization that ever existed on American soil, an oiganlzatlon that sornples at nothing to compass its onds, as has just boon evidenced by lis wholesale stoal of the state senate in that state, disfranchising oyer 1100 voters in one county to accomplish its purpose, and throwing out on technicalities enough republican senators to give that body and the ontiro state government into the hands of Tammany. It must ha % sorry day for the great and good mug­ wumps to contemplate. We aro sorry for tho rsigu of corruption in New York but wo have no tears to shod for the great and good mugwumps who made such a state of affairs possible. Their position is identical with the prohibitionists in Iovrn. They could accomplish nothing in a party for themselves, but their work has made both New York and Iowa domocratio to the uttor ruin of the very measures that they claimed to bo so greatly and vitally interested in. Any man who wants reform and oxpecls to find it by antagonizing tho republican parly is hoping agaiasl hope. ADDITIONAL LOOAL. Tut Iowa legislature has done nolo ing as yet, a dead lock occurring in the senate oa the election of officers, Mr. Engle, the independent member, vot' ing with the republicans. It was thought that the damocratle officers would be elceted yesterday, as two republicans threatened to vote with the demoorals to break the dead lock, which oould accomplish nothing at best, and only oausc delay. Lot the legislature get down to business, if it has any tc dy. TUB grip Is much more sevcro in a good many parts of the country than it has been here as yet. Many deaths are reported in the papers in numerous localities. Karly Nral*! ' li'tUTa a Mtatifce.

A WATER CLOCK. iftlldrthjtr uejplti ftfom rf*r*«iiiii" A Omatlfal Pl«e« of Work that Requires No Winding. One of the attractions of the beautiful Monte Flnoio garden, at Rome, la • really unique olook, whioh is usually an object of Interest to groups of passers-by. A description of this curious and artistio piece of mechlnlsm Is given by the Horologloal Review: The caso la composed of three brunches in rustio work. It stands upon a square stone blook, surrounded on Its four sides by beautiful leaf plants, Ivy and grasses. The stone foot stands within a wator basin. Tho upper part of the case contains a dial covered with glass ou each of Its four sides. Upon the oupola stands e> staff, which carrloe tho two bells for the full hour and the quarters. At Its upper end is a small vane In tho shape of a battle axe. The fraiuo for the whoel and levers of the striking work, in which a small centrifugal pendulum takes tho plaoo of the fly, It olose underneath the dial. At the back of tho olook frame oscillates the second pendulum, and before this is located a muss of rustio work, similar to a largo coral growth, from whioh issuo two small jets of water at ropular lntorvals. Two of the uppermost coral branches are wu'or conduit pipes, from whioh flows alternately, at each swing of tho pendulum, a Bmall quantity ot wator Into two loaflike spoons undornaath, imparting to them an up and down motion. Tho pooullni- moilvo power furnlshod by tho walor keeps 'tin clook iu motion by a vary romm'lcub'n esoupouiont, so that it never roquliMH winding.

The oath wai originally an appeal to divine authoilty to rutlfy an assertion. The old Groak go Is swore hy iho Styx, ind Jehovah Is rcprosentod in the early books of tlu bible m swearing by himself, there being nons hlghor. Tho form of an oath among tho Hobrr.v.) was: '-By the God ol Abraham.," "God do BO unto mo, 1 ' and "God knowoth." In A^sam and in 111 flirt, two poi -sons doslring to tako an oath, or affirm with groat solemnity, tukj a fowl or n dojr, one by its head, the o'.lio." by Its tali. Tho Ostyaks of Siberia swoar by tho head of n boar, making u motion with tho jaws, und oxpre .Mln? a liopo that thoy may bo dovourud If thoy spon'c falsely. In anclont times it was considered ossontinl to tho validity of an oath that tho witness should hold something in his hand, or place It upon soino object of groat sanctity. With the Jews it was th3 book of tho law, which, no doubt lod to tho uso of the bible In christian courts of justice. Tho Bedouin Arab3 have, from the mort remote porlod, uaed various fa rms of adjuration. One of thoso wits "By tho Temple:'' another, still In u .10, is as follows: Tho person taking the oath takes ho'd of the mlddlo polo of the tont and swoars by tho "llfo" of the tont and its owner. Mohammed swore by tho '-setting of tho staiv," a most pootlcal oath, though hardly so mag- nlfloont as tho oft-quoted adjurffation of William tho C:)nquoror. who swore "By tho splendor of God." Tho Roman oath of olden times jWus mado with groat solemnity nnd dlabor- atlon, says tho St. Louis Repiibllo^ In Roman mythology, Juno, making a promise to sleep, strengthened It by taking tho hoavons in one Irind and the earth in tho other, tirooks and Romans sworo by thoir fpds, by the Styx, by Olympus, by hell, by their sacred springs, wells :>.nd rlvovs, and by tho sun nud the moon. Thoir oaths were of much value and menninjj during the onrly dayB of tho Republic, but worthless nftor thny bocamo corrupt. Oaths lost thoir »anuttty and became colloquial or pro'ano nt a very early time amon<; tho JOUM. (irook lodlos cwore daintily by Vonu*.

Louis IX., so djvout In his old ago, sworo by God's resurrection. Charles VIII. sworo -'By the ll^Iit of God." Louis XII., who wall moi-itoU tho title "Father of his Poople." treated the Deity with losi familiarity. When he deslrod to eraphiuiuo nn assertion he simply said: "Vay tho devil carry me off." Charles IX., sutUilod his morbid desire for soma form of piofuulty by saying: "fty the head of God," or "By God's doath." Honry IV. also had two oaths with which ho freely puno- tuatoJ his conversation. Ono was, •VJarmd'.on" (May I dony God), and too other was. "liy tho holly of Gris." Bt Gris wai tho 20.I o( drunkards.
