with an enthuRiasra that carries every
thing before it. It is doubtful whether
anyone who has ever even dimly con
sidfet d this great question can, after
taking np the book, put it down again
until the lant page is finished.
Prof. Drummond contends that the
theory of evolution as commonly re
garded is incomplete and out of focus;
that one of the most important factors
has been ignored, which omission has
led astray all sciences bearing upon the
subject. When the general basis of evo
lution is re-examined and all the factors
are considered, the whole matter takes
on an nsect unseen before, and there
appears a higher aud more benign force
than that which in "the strugglefor life,"
crushes out remorselessly every other
atom of life for the benefit of the "sur
vivor." The operation of this law is merciless
and appalled even a Huxley, who tried
to evade its awlulness by injectiug, con
trary to all the scientific laws he had for
so long strenuously insisted upon, an
."Ethical principle," to take the place of
the "cosmic struggle."
The writer demonstrates a struggle for
the Life of Others as well as the Darwin
' ian Struggle for life. For upon the for
mer depends the continuation of life it
self. This volume deals with the Ascent of
the Individual. -'It is a study in Em
bryo." One of the most striking chap
ters is The Arrest of the Body, but the
most unique chapters are those on the
Evolution of a Mother and a Father.
The book as a whole is wonderfully
vigorous, stimulating and convincing.
It is worthy of beiug read by all lovers
of truth, and its deep moral feeling can
not help doing good.

We notice in the St. Joseph Herald an
editorial expression on the industrial
situation in Germany which contains the
common contradictory nonsense of those
who would defend things as they are.
Speaking of the miserably low wages and
pinching poverty of the wealth makers of
Germany (they have a high tariff there
by the way), the Herald goes on to say
"Bad as is all this, worse is apprehend
ed if a general disbanding of the great
armies shall occur and throw millions of
idle young men into competition with the
Then, why not reduce competition?)
and prevent resultant poverty among
the workers by increasing the army?
Keep recruiting and swelling the size of
the gun-bearing -army. Take into it the
poor who are now so fiercely competing
with each other for jobs, and require
those who now find plenty to do to carry
on their backs first the throne, with all
its pillars and paraphernalia; second, the
landlords, beggars, capitalists, paupers
and money loaners; third, the needlessly
large number of middlemen; fourth, a
vast and growing regular army, lest the
too great number seeking work destroy
each other by too great competition
causing lower than living wages and
slow starvation. But if competition and
monopolies must be, there is one change
that seems to us necessary. The army
rules require only able bodied men to be
recruiied, and if the able bodied are the
only sort who are allowed to climb up
and ride on the backs of the workers, it
would seem more humane to the workers
to reduce competition by shooting them,
a thousand or two or three at a time,
than to overwork and starve them. It
doesn't seem hardly fair, either, to relieve
the cunning and the unjust monopolists
and the able-bodied of productive labor,
and force the rest to bear them upon
"Forever enjoined" from obeying or
executing the law passed at the last
legislature to establish a maximum
freight rate in Nebraska, and by Judge
Dundy's personal decree. And "It is
further ordered and adjudged that the
plaiutiff (the railroads) recover of said
defendants their costs, to be taxed by the
clerk." The people of this state are thus
with one sweep of the hand of a judicial
autocrat swept from power and trampled
into submission. They first paid their
representatives to enact their will into
law. Then, at request of the railroads
Dundy stepped iu and temporarily en
joined the enforcement of the law, and
the case, with piling up costs, was allow

The report of the United States Strike
Commission called forth an open letter
from the editor of the Railway Age, the
chief literary prostitute of the railroad
power, a letter which denied important
facts upon which the Commission's con
clusions were based. Hon. Carroll D.
Wright now publishes a letter in reply,
saying that every material position
taken by the Age critic is false, and that
the Commission's positions are iu the
main clearly substantiated by the evi
dence taken by the Commission "and
chiefly by the sworn testimony of the
railway and Pullman officers." The
testimony is all to be printed.
In politics there has to be a real pur
pose or a hypocritical pretense on the
part of candidates to stand for the com
mon interest. That is why there is more
hypocrisy among office seekers than
among all other classes of people.

party, found elsewhere, thinks we should
confine ourselves to the money question
and make that the issue of the campaign
of ty. What is the money question?
Some say it is the free silver question
simply. And some say it is the question
of a govern meut banking system to fur
nish the people a safe pluee of deposit for
surplus funds and to loan them their
own credit at cost, a system which is
absolutely necessary to prevent the con
centration of wealth by usury drainage.
This last is our opinion. Free silver and
greenbacks issued without government
banks belonging to all the people, would
be like pouring water into a hole. Don't
try to switch us off onto a mere fragment
of the money question. We won't follow
any such leadership. Moreover, it is not
possible nor sensible to drop the railroad,
telegraph and land questions. If Chair
man Taubeneck is correctly reported in
the Rocky Mountain News hehas made a
fearfully foolish break for a man in his
position. We cannot believe it.
Thanksgiving, A D. 1894
Apropos to the approaching Thauks
giving, may 1 suggest that it will be nec
essary to make a few changes in the
stereotyped address usually delivered on
We have heard until we could ourselves
preach the sermon calling attention tc
the fact that our granaries are full al
most to bursting, our cribs are loaded
with corn, are kine are sleek and our
horses fat and spinted, our larders are
shocked with salubrious and toothsome
viands, our near of kin are well and iD
hearty enjoyment of life, our nation is at
peace with oil the earth, "peace within
her walls aud plenty within her palaces."
This year, as above hinted, it will be
necessary to introduce a few changes tc
suit the altered conditions. It must be
acknowledged tliut when we Iihvp eaten a
liberal quantity of turkey with cran
berry sauce, we are very apt to mistake
our own comfortable condition for that
of the country in general.somewhat after
the manner of the little boy who said.he
felt "as if we had all bad enough to eat."
This year it is possible that some of our
Thanksgiving orators may themselves
have to forego turkey and content them
selves with chicken pie, in which event
there is a much better prospect of their
appreciating the condition of the public
We have so long identified success and
prosperity with material acquisition that
it may seem to many as if we have little
to give thanks for on November 29,
1894. But if we but look beneath the
surface we may see many and profouud
reasons for thankfulness. The practiced
eye of the physician may detect favora
ble symptoms, when to the unskilled ob
server the patient may appear to be rap
idly getting worse. Prosperity is often
more seeming than real, and there are
good reasons to believe that the adver
sities of this last year are but blessings
We can no longer boast of a happy and
contented country. The numerous
strikes, lock-outs and riots of the past
season are realities that must be taken
into account. We cannot argue away
the fact that millions of our fellow coun
Begging a brother of the earth
To give him leave to toil,"
and generally without success. The daily
press remind's us that tens of thousands
of women aud children are suffering from
cold and hunger. These are calamities,
and cause the heart of our most morally
dead to bleed in sympathy, yet there is a
large sense in which they may be bless
ings. If we learn from the rioting and
bloodshed that our seeming tranquility
was but "peace with a cudgel m hund'
which, the proverb reminds us, is war; if
we recognize that widespread want aud
suffering, hate and distrust of the pres
ent is the natural and inevitable result
of a Christless and suicidal competition,
then America never had greater rea
son to give thanks and sing hosannae
than now. It is much better we should
fail than prosper in a course of wrong
doing. The law which visits suffering
and disaster upon the offender is prompt
ed by love, and is the only law of
growth and development.
If we are suffering the reproach which
sin brings upon any peoplerlet us try the
effect of national righteousness. If we
are now eating the bitter fruit of hate
aud selfishness, let us give love a trial. If
bvrefuRingto be in any degree our
brother's keeper, we have failed to keep
ourselves, let us see what altruism will
do for us. If it takes this severe lesson
to teach us our independence, let us learn
the lesson well and be thankful.

Sr. Louis, Mo., Nov. 27. To a re
porter to-day Governor Stone said
that he was not ready to announce
what he would do in relation to Re

he is of the opinion now that he had
not the legal power to remove Owsley.
He declined to talk further on the
topic, but stated that he would de

what his legal powers in this con
nection were and then he would be in
a position to say what action he pro
posed to take.
