Alliance: Our present
social system is just the opposite to the
-kivvs of the universe and the plan of na
ture. Throw the planets out of their
orbits and send them living through
.space, crashing against each other, the
smaller ones falling before the larger,
and you would have a very good illus
tration of our present system on a
larger scale. What has brought about
.this state of affairs? Nothing but arti
ficial man-made laws prompted by greed
and selfishness contrary to the laws of
(Jod and nature. There is a class of men
in this world who would if it were in
'.their power appropriate all the bread in
the world, pile it up in a pile, then stop
the seasons in their rotation until they
could extort all the wealth from the in
habitants, then perhaps sit down on the
pi!e and cry for the moon. Xapoleon
was one of this class and thev did about
the right thing with him. There is an
other class afflicted with this klepto
mania whose weakness consists in ap
propriating worthless trinkets and trash
and piling them up. Society has always
stood in holy horror of this class, and
always adopts speedy measures to pro
tect themselves from them, while they
have been making the former class rul
ers over them. Rut a change is taking
place in public sentiment, i'eople are
beginning to see that the appropriating
of the wealth of the producer by a non
pti'dncing class has a tendency to dis
courage industry; is driving men out of
honorable legitimate labor, and enticing
them into unknown paths of specula
tion, gambling and other means of ex
torting Hie earnings from their fellow
men. ( )ur laws must be so reconstruct
ed as to leave the producer of wealth
the possession of wealth. That will in
vite them into the fields of industry in
stead of driving them from them. The
, application of steam and electricity to
navigation, transportation and labor
saving machinery is a powerful agency
either for the benefit or detriment of
the masses. If controlled by the Xa
poleon class our history is shoit. This
class . with these agencies can destroy i
nation; and governments in a very lim
ited !race of time compared to the
downfall of ancient nations. Will the
people of the United States protect
themselves from this destroying ele
thus avert the impending!
calamity? "Eternal vigilance is the
price of liberty." J. 1. Oslkk.

Our Coal Supply.
We clip the following from an able
paper on1 the question, by Edward 1
Jackson, published in the North Amer
ican lleview. It is a scientific view of
one of the economic questions of the
age. lie says:
Time was when the carbon and hy
drogen, which form practically the
whole of our supply of fuel and the
principal part of our food, were inor
ganicno more capable of sustaining
combustion or animal life (if we except
certain microscopic forms which de
compose carbonic acid) than granite or
slate. For vegetable life, however, the
supply of food was at its maximum.
Vegetable life came, generated in some
unknown way by the solar energy which
poured through the atmosphere, and
the heat energy which penetrated the
earth's crust from within. Through the
unimaginable ages of the carboniferous
period a gigantic Horn fell on the rich
atmosphere, assimilating its carbon and
hydrogen, and thereby setting free its
oxygen, until it could sustain its animal
life, at first in the lowest, then success
ivelv in the higher forms. This gi
gantic flora, with its enormous poten
tial energy of chemical separation from
oxygen an energy derived chielly from
the solar energy of that period, easily
admitted and tenaciously retained by
the atmosphere is now stored up m
the earth as fuel for the future genera
tions of our race. Future, I say, for
tremendous as the annual consumption
of coal, petroleum and natural gas for a
generation has been, ve have as yet
only begun upon titer great store.
Hitherto Mother Earth has been able

multiplied so rapidly that she has been i
obliged to draw upon the capital stored
up during the long ages of her maiden-1
How long will tliat capital last at the !

squander it? Is her children's prodi
gafity actually maicing ner poorer, or
shl: tjie power to nullify the ef
lects ot their extravagance, and art
hr diminisliins resources due only to
the decreasing energy of her natural
supporter and protector, the sun?
However prodigal man may be in his
use of earth s treasures, he can never

have returned to its primeval condition
that which preceded the carboniferous
period. The only essential diflerenee,
thereore, which will mark the two re
mote geologic periods, the past and the
future, will be due to whatever reduc
tion w ill have taken place in the sun's
energy. But whether that condition is
destined ever to' return to earth or not.
one thing is certain: it will not be
through human instrumentality. Ages
before its arrival the percentage of car
bonic acid in the atmosphere will have
passed the point possible to the contin
uance of human life. If not through
human agency, then how is it to come?
j Certainly not by any of the processes
j now in operation. The percentage of
carbonic acid in the atmosphere does
not materially vary. This tact means
simply that somewhere on the earth's
surface, vegetation is taking up the
enormous surplus of carbonic acid con
stantly pouring forth from our millions
of furnaces, and thus restoring it to the
form of available, fuel. The weight that
is constantly sinking, is thus being con
stantly relit' ted. by the daily conversion
of solar to vital energy. Only some
stuperfdous convulsion of nature, like
those dreamed of by John of Patmos
and Lord. Byron, in which "the ele
ments shall melt with ferrent heat,"'
can undo the work of the carboniferous
ages some tremenduous upheaval in
which the subterranean stores of fuel
shall at once be laid bare and given over
to the devouring oxygen. Then would
a new cycle begin, another carboniferous
era, in which the store houses would be
again slowly rilled for future genera
tions of men. Again and again might
the cycle return, until the diminishing
energy of the sun should fail to uplift
the fallen weight, to reorganize the inorganic.

tion from D. L. Moody on the Prohibi
tion. On Oct. 19th 1 addresssed Mr.
Moody in the following manner, which
he answed over his own signature, as
1st. "Are you in favor of the com
plete Prohibition of the liquor traffic
and saloon in our Nation?"
Ans. "I am.'"
:M. "Do you believe it is right in the
sight, of God to grant license for the
sale of intoxicating liquors?"
Ans. "I do not."
od. Do you think there is any other
attitude except that of uncompromising
hostility toward the Liquor traffic, for
the true follower of Christ?"
Ans. "I do not."
4th. "Are you in sympathy with the
Prohibition party method of disposing
of the traffic?"
Ans. "Let all temperance men hold
together, and if either party put up a
rum man, all go on the other side."
5 h. "Do you think it is right for a
Christian to identify himself with any
political party that is not in uncom
promising hostility to the saloon.-"

I have these answers in Mr. Moody's
own handwriting and over his own sig

questions four and five may not quite

he stands on the subject.

ENCOURAGING TO MOTHERS.
The following is from the venerable
Professor Clark, who wrote the famous
Grammar. He gave a brief address be
fore the Monroe county. New York, W.
C. T. U. convention, in which he said:
"My mother brought up her five boys
in a tavern. Her husband would sell
liquor, and while "customers' (and hard
ones at that) were carousing in the bar
room, she in the nursery pre'ached
'righteousness, temperance and judg
ment to come.' One of her sons became
a senator of the Empire state. She urged
him to stand by his principles in his
high station; he did so, and brought in
the Clark Bill similar in its provisions
to the Maine law. It was adopted, but
Govenor Seymour vetoed it. My broth
er was then made candidate for gov
ernor to beat Seymour, and he did it.
My mother's boys weie staunch for
temperance. Do not be discouraged,
women of Monroe; your boys will help
you to free America from the drink
bondage; the day is not far off." Union
