TlwPostville Weekly Review. POSTVILLB, SATDAY, FEB. 90. W. N. BtJRDIOK, Editor, Entered al the postoffice at Postville as stcond-claxs matter. THAT OttUft VlBW. Lnst week's Graphic contained a 'lengthy find very ably written communication from our esteemed friend, "J. II.," inking tli* REVIIW to task for its position oo the questions of labor and 'Capital. We cannot answer the arguments mado intelligently to our read- eri without giving tho article entire, which we do not. do for two roasons: Tint it would require mora ipxca than wo could spare, and secondly we do not believe tho mbject is of siilllelenl importance at this time, and especially outside of the great titles, to warrant it. The argumont favors eoinmunisin, pure and simple, it it favors anything; and we cannot believe that wa havo a 8 ti aiojDn"S"'"'«''» I''*'' a' -8 infected 'hat voice'liuT?lTseutimente. Wo come to ttiis conclusion from the fact that we know the man, and know not only Ins breadth of mind but his industrious and frugal habits, and his ambition, not only to provide well for his family, but to lay up something fjra "rainy day." We believe that he, no more than we, would be williug to divide his store of this world's goods, whether it bo large or small, with those who did not earn it ami had no claim whatever upon it. This would be the logic of his argument, for he says that: "It the wealth of to-day was distributed among its producers our Goulds and Vandor- bilts would have to go to the soup house for their breakfasts." As he docs uot. go to lho "soup house" tho uatiiral itifornnce is that he has too much wealth, and should surronder a part of it to his less affluent neighbors! But this picture of the Goulds and the Vanderbilts doos not tally with the balanco of his argument, for ho says: "Sue that an equal and just distribution of wealth is made and shortly the earth will groan under its burden of wealth which will be as fruo to all as water. Poverty will disappear from the earth and its at'.ondants, ignorance, misery nud crime will follow it." There is some consolation therefore iu knowing that whou this Utopian dream is realized we shall uot havo to go to the soup houses, but we shall all rovpl iu untold wealth! If our friend should succeed in causing (hi* equal distribution of wealth down thereof." Tho hope of ever. evading ntly of these tmiiiiitabls laws Is as futile and chiuierlal as "the baseless fabric of a vision." All society can do, all that law can do, Is to ameliorate their condition as fnr ns possible without trenching on the rights of others. This, with the application of the golden rule, must sutllee until such lime as the unfoldment of lho great future shall reveal the thought of God iu the ursation. Out poverty is not tho only curse nsr riches the only blessing. Neither is physical labor such a terrible thing. Thtre is a compensation running through all tho conditions of lifo which, if we could realize, would enable us to see that there is no great difference after all. The healthiest and happiost men on oartli art the toilers, and as a vnlo they live longest. It is mental labor that destroys, not physical. It is the burning of tho midnight oil poring ovor day books and ledgers, and bills receivable and bills payable, that saps tho fountains ef life, and •auses its sun to set at uoon-time. Let us be honest with ourselves and lioucst willi our fellow men and not seek to get something for nothing, which ws should do if we sought te appropriate the aecysiUlatioiis of others gur own use. As we caauot hope to vo lho ability of a Bliine or a Gladstone distributed to us, in like manner lot us not hope to have the woallh of a Gould or a Vniidorbilt distributed to us. In both these directions wo must stand or fall on our own moritt, always rsmenj'oeving thai "Thoro is no oxcol- loneo without great labor." 'SUNDAY NI&ttT." IMMOttTALITT. and .be at rest. To our mind it is the , 80 far as wo are informed sicknoss plain duty of evory man to find such a ; from grip in thissecliou is relaxing, and home and let his light shine. If thoro 1 we hope it may continue to lot go. is no church organization within resell THE following is from a recent editorial in tho Dubuque Telegraph, ono of lho leading domooratiu papors of the state, 011 the candidncy of David 13. Hill. It is a candid and truthful statement of the case, and is all the moro pertinent when It is reasonably certain ' that Hill will be nominated at Chicago, or that if he is not nominatod ho will beat tho nominee out of Now York at tho flection, as ho did in 1888, and thus, as thou, beat him out of tho election. Considering the Hill they have to climb tho future is full of forebodings to the democracy: "David B. Hill will bo tho choica of the democratic convention which meets in Now Yt.rk Feb. 2'2 '.o soloct dele­ gatus to lho national convention. The calling of a couveution so early is an unprecedented thing and Hill's pur- poso was'a snap judgment on tho democrats of New York. But Cleveland's friends will not stand it and will call another convention Inter in the season. pparenlly determined to rulo lln will toll tho democrats ol tho nation that ho is the choice of Now York, that no othor democrat can carry Now York, and that tho alternative >flora! the democracy is Hill or defeat. Undoubtedly lho democrat*, except the spoils element, would prefer defoat to Hill. There is no question but that he dangerous man, and one of the how long does ho suppose it would be I ™>*\ unscrupulous men in public lifo, 0 . ...... ,, ,.. I that he is lho democrat party s Dudley or Quay but moro powerful nud mors to be foarsd. Tho power of such mon as Hill iu politics is au accusation against the pros- out system of elections. Hill lias 110 strength oulsido of his own state, lit is a strong man thero because ho has tin uaitott support of the most unreliable and most disreputable element of his own party." boforo another distribution would bo required to maintain the equilibrium? The distributions would have to occur ns often as those of tho now defunct Louisiana State Lottery, and would be 110 more satisfactory in their results. Ono of the fallacies of the communistic idea is that all men art by naturo "as like as two poas," and that if you ."tart them out with equal capitsl they will maintain that relation.

"If a man ilio shall he live again," was tho subject of a discourse, or rather what wa should term a lecture, by Rev. Amos Crum, of Dubuque, at the Uni- vorsiilist church at Castalia, on Wednesday evening of last week. This would not bo a sabjoct calling for morn than a passing thought were it not for lha fact thai tho Rev. divine aloted tho Biblo in this discussion and dopended solely on scienae and reason for his afllrmativu argument on this occasion. This was to us such a now departure from the ordinary presentation of lho subject lhat it elicited our interest from the sttrt; for right here is whero wo have always been tompclled to takt issue with tli( religious world, when it hits told us that wo must not only ignore human rtason but science, if it conflicted with tht rovcaled word, and accept in thtir stead a, to us, blind faith. This lecture evidently was uot intended to tiilightcn the firm bnlicver in inspiration, but to make inspiration moro raasonablu to tho doubter; and this, to our mind, is what this r.ge demands. This is an age in which tho "why" as well ns lho "how" must be fully met. The speaker did not claim for scienco that it was an infallible guide, or that it fully demonstrated anything In replying to tho question at issue. The crust of the earth revealed how it was formed, but nol why, only infcrenlinlly. The geologist finds that at soma remote period, perhaps a million years ago, tho conditions wcto such thai the strata of coal was formed. He cannot discorn from its formation why it was formed, but as it existed for untold ages absolutely valueless until man came on to tho sccno to utilize it, it is a reasonable inferonfo that it was formed for the use of man, as were the rocks, tho baser and tho precious mollis. Tliis is reasonable because wc all agreo, who belicvo in a supremo intelligence at all, that] nothing was created in vain, and that everything was created lhat wo find on this earth for tho uso or comfort of man. Chemistry has established tho fact that no atom of matter can bo lost, however much its form may bo changed. What ho lermod tho suionco of Bind was of inflnitoly more valuo and power than matter, because it dictates to and practically controls mattsr. By tho oxer cise of tho will of man the granite can bo taken front its home 111 Ike everlasting hills and fashionsd into "a tiling of btiuily and a joy forovor." Likewise tho go'd can bt taken from the mine and "purified by liro" and mado the most precious of metals. Tho rough tree can bo taken from the forest and transformed into lumber and than into a magnificent habitation for men. The speaker did not claim that all these things demonstrated that man is immortal, because tht subject is not capable of actual demonstration. But noto the logic and lho roaioning: God had in mind tht wants of man all th« Unit in tha creation of the world, for otherwise many of ilia mos', imporiant creations would hava been valuolesi;. At lho proper lime man was crftatod and placed on lha earlh to ulilizo and enjoy tho balance of tho creation, This settles tho grtat interest '.hat God had in man hero. Than conios tho fact that no atoat of matter can ever bo lost. There being no consciousness or identity in mattor nothing suffers by its changss of form. Now how about the mind, the soul of man, lho Inst sad greatest creation of all? This has dominion over mattor, including its own tenement of clay. Shall It be lost, forovor lost iu tho obscurity of obliylon, and thus all the creation end in failure when man lies down in death? Unlike mattor, the mind has identity and consciousness, and to ehango its form or transform it inlo something elst, as in tho cast of mattor, would bo in effect to aunihilato it. Then is it reasonable to supposo that the soul of man shall go out at death liko a lighted caiullu? Is it not more reasonable by far to sup pose, that like matter, It cannot bo dos troyed, and that ovory particle of its consciousness and identity shall live whllo God, its author, remains on the throne of the universe? This is a very brief and Imported outline of tho leoture that occupied an hour and a quarter in Its delivery, but convoys some idea of tha prominent point, made. To the outside roasoner it conlainod a large amount of food for thought and was a great aid to the bollef In lho Immortality of tha soul which is by no means a settled convio tloo in the minds of all men, even of those who nooopt tho existence of God in some form. Thoso two propositions being accepted then all that is required to be dono Is to present a reasonable- religion and there Is no danger but the world will aocopt it. Some oroods aro raatonablo to some minds and nol 10 others, just as some purely temporal matters seem reasonable to some minds and absurd to others. Some peoplo can accept a religion and worship God with a full belief that only a few oho- stn ones will be snnlehad fro.n tha eternal burning, while others aro so constituted that they could accept no trend and embraoe no religion if uncier its ample folds oue soul- that evor -Misled on earth was to go out and broast. the waves of nu.etornal sea of pain. Some poople oan accept 11 oroed wherein faith alouo saves, while others demand that works shall be the sheet anchor, and that no matter what the belief may be this lifo everyday must prove that the faith is slioare. Actions bpoak louder than words in everything else, and some oan see no reason: why rollg* ion should bq any oxoaption to the rulo. Eftch of these persons are equally honest in their oonviotlonsmid eaoit should' be equally respected In tbflr views., . Henee we say there, l» »ome eburolr home w)iore every mad who noospU-tho existence qf Red and tb» Immortality thai fills your measuro ef faith you cas nt leas', livo your religion every day and mnkt tho world a little better and mankind a little happier by your life. While the orthodox world will continue lo nay that good deeds nnd an exemplary life will not savo yon, thoy will not deny but such a life is commendable here, and lhat, so far as it goes, it is in Hit line of Christianity. Of course if you arc orthodox in belief you will not depend on good works alone, but if you arc you ought to hr. in tho church, if you arc nol already thero. We can seo no reason in tht world why any man who accopts the orthodox faith should be outsidt tho church, and wo cannot believe Unit any are outsido the church who have lhat belief. Wu see tht evidences every day that we aro mortal and aro rapidly passing away. II wo rccognizo tho fact that thtre is anything to be done to preparo for the change it should be done quickly and with our might. Those of us who cannot penetrate tho veil or unravel tha mystery of Godliness can o»ly do what wo can fvilh tho light wo have, which comes from roiuon and sxpeiisucu. This teaches us lo bo moral, upright, bcnovolent and kind, because theso virtues conserve our own happiness and tUo happiness of nil wilh whom wo come in coulact. If you cannot believe as much as your neighbor doos do not stultify what yon do belieyo by neglecting to lire it every day of your lives. It there is no reward for it heioafter there is ample reward for it here, and wu certainly can be no worse ofl' in lho hereafter, whatever its nature, if we scatter sunlight and joy nil along tho pathway of human life. It wo aro lo bt condemned anyway Hit condemnation cau bo no greater because wo havt lifted up tht fnlltii and ministered to the sick nnd aillicted as we had opportunity all along our pilgrimage. As our bonofactloas widen and our good deeds incroase mora light may bt lei into our doubting minds from the great source of light, until we aro enabled to fathom the mystories that aro cloar to others. Let us not bo hypocrites, but men nnd women in lho highest and tru- ost stuso, as wo aro given to understand it, and it shall be well wilh us hero, and if our hearts aro overflowing with lovo to tho Croator and to our fellow mon there can bo no heights or depths that will bo closul to us. No chaina cuu bu forged that Lovo will not broak, no locks that Love will not open, no soa of glovy that Lovo cannot fathom, no heights of blus that Love cannot scale, no groves ot paradise that Love cannot penetrate, no song of lho redtumud that Lovo cannot sing, because high in the arching dome that circles the univtrsc, in characters of everlasting light wo may discover lhat sign by which we conquer—GOD is LOVE.
