The Churches and Monopoly.
The subject of the attitude of the
Chi istian churches on the great ques
tions that are now attracting so wide
attention is one of much importance,
and is rapidly coming to the front. Pop
ular thought is takiag such a form that
they will be obliged to define their po
sition, and either relinquish the worldly
honor of being the bulwarks of wealth
and privilege, or cease to claim Jesus
Christ as their great exemplor. The
merits of this question are so ably
presented in the following editorial from
The Xew Nation, that we publish it
Our Christmas Editorial Attacked,
The editorial in The New Nation for
Deo. 26 in which we pointed out the
glaring contrast between the precepts of
Christ and the principles on which so
ciety and industry are organized in so
called Christian lands, is sharply criti
cized by tbe Christian Advocate, It
says: ."That Christain piinciples are but
little recognized in the constitu.ion and
order of society is too true. It is even
true that the churches are organized
and administered on too low a basis,
and that the spirit of Christ does not
completely control them. It may be
admitted that even the best Christians
have not entered fully into the spirit
and life of Christ. But to say that the
teachings of Christ kave produced no
effect on society, that all men repudiate
his precepts in practical life, is to speak
blindly, ignorantly and foolishly, if not
The words of the Advocate might pos
sibly give a wrong idea of what we said.
So far as the precepts of Christ may be
considered as referring to the cultivation
of personal saintliness and the practice
of Christian graces in the family and
other intimate relations, they have had
much effect upon society. What we
characterized as utterly un-Christian
was the social organization as regards
the relations of men in general to one
another, as illustrated by the inequali
ties of wealth and the course and princi
ples of business. As this is a matter of
groat importance and one on which we
intend saying more and more, we will
make our position clear by quoting
what was said in our Christmas editori
al, which was as follows:
What would be the amazement of the visi
tor from another sphere, on sroinsr forth from
the churches and making inquiries anion? the
people, to learn that the teachings of Cnrist
wi re not only ignored in the organization of
society, but that the latter was, in all its im
portant reppects, based upon principles in
radical and deadly hostility to the Christian
doctrine. Kor example, the fundamental
teaching of Christ was that men shO'U-! love
their nelpnbors ny wnitn ne was careful tc
explain in a parable that bo meant nil men) as
well as they loved themselves, and treat them
accordingly. liecauae it would be manifestly
Inconsistent with such love that some should
Urn in luxury while their neighbors suffered
want, he declared that the rich might outer
his communion oniy bb iney ten tneir nones
behind or devoted them to tbe good of others
Hecoa-nizing tho inequality in men's nat.iral
powers he taught that tbe stronger mutt not
use their superior force to gain advantages
over their neighbors, but should consider
themselves bum. d to serve their weaker neigh
bars in proportion as they were stronger than
they. That these principles were the basis of
Christ's ethics, the visitor from another world
would find no one to deny, but nowhere in
tbe structure of society would he find them
acoordod any serious recognition. He would
tlnd society organized upon the thoory that no
one owed anybody, not of his family, any du
ty except not to assault, or (violenty) rob
him. He would find that the rl sh, Instead f
being regarded as disqualified for the Chris
tain iommunion, chiefly controlled and ad
ministered tbe churches. He would find, in
stead of the strong holding themselves bound
to help and serve the weak, ! that it was re
garded as a sufficient reason why one man
might properly have better things than an
other, that he was abler. If. indeed, the sup
posed visitor from another world pushed bis
researches far enough, he would find it hard
to avoid the conclusion that if a social system
had been expressly constructed for the pur
pose of repudiating and pouring contempt
pon the teachings of Jesus, It could not have
been more ingeniously contrived tnan that
existing among nations which celebrated
Christmas yesteraay with such beautiful
Will the editor of the Christian Advo
cate carefully read over tbo above and
make answer wherein its statements are
not notoriously and absolutely true! Is
it true or not that Christ taught and
indeed made it the main tenor of hfs
teaching that men should love their
neighbors as themselves? Is it or is it
not true that he taught that the posses
sion of riches in a world of poverty was
inconsistent with the acceptance oft bis
doctrine, and is not the manifest reason
of this that any one enjoying luxury
while his neighbors are in want, gives
indisputable proof that he does not love
them as ho does himself, and thereby
repudiates the fundamental Christian
duty T Is it or is it not true that Christ's
teaching as to the relation of the wise,
and keen and strong to the ignorant,
dull and weak, Is taat it should be one
of service and helpfulness, and that they
should not use their superior faculties
in any way to take advantage of their
So much for the teachings of Christ.
Now as to the contrast to them offered
by the actual state of the so-called Chris
tian world. Is it or is it not true that
society in this world is made up of rich
and poor and that ' the misery of the
poor is mocked on every hand by the
ostentation and luxury of the rich? Is
it or is it not true that in a thousand
cities the rich aie to be found feasting
behind their silken curtain while the
b-frcar. tb prost tuts ant tbo out tut
child Jotle one another upon the pave
ment without? Is it or I it not true
that so far as all the romforU, refine
ments and decencies of life art con
cerned, the contrast f heaven and ht-U
is to be found in any of our towns with
in the distant of a couple of blocks. Is
it or is ii not true that the rich, instead
of being tegarded in the way Christ
regarded them, as disqualified for the
Christian fellowship by their self indul
gence in tbe presence of misery, are dil
igently songht for to be the pillars and
administrators of Christian churches?
Is it or is it not true that the strong and
keen, instead ot helping and protecting
and serving their werer fellows, take
advantage of them selfishly, and seek
to make servants of them and tools for
their own enrichment? Is or is not this
practice what is called "business," and
as such is it or is it not tho accepted
rule of conduct for practical men in the
carrying on of commerce and industry
It is possible, indeed, that we were
extravagant in saying that "if a social
system bad been expressly constructed
for tbe purpose of repudiating and pour
ing contempt upon tbe teachings of Je
sus, it could not have been more ingen
iously contrived than that existing
among the nations which celebrated
Christmas yesterday with such beauti
ful ceremonies," Possibly a social sys
tem might be constructed that would
mock Christ and bis teachings even
more pointedly than that w are liviag
under. We merely meant that we went
not clever enough to imagine what such
a sjsteni would be like.
Tiie Advocate Bald that in our Christ
mas editorial we spoke "blindly, igno
rantly, and foolishly, if not maliciously,"
These are hard words, and unless they
can be justified should be apologized for
and retracted, We ask I he editor of the
Christian Advocate either to justify or
retract his words.
The statements whieh the Advocate
declared to be made "blindly, ignorant
ly and foolishly, if not maliciously," are
of two classes. The first class consists
of statemects as to Christ's teachings.
We would have given chapter and verse
for them, but that such a course might
seem offensive, as intimating that the
editor of the Advocate had not read the
New Testament We will, however,
gladly furnish them if the Advocate has
lent or mislaid its copy cf that volume.
The New Testament is on file at the
New Nation office.
The other class of statements charac
terized as "blindly, ignorantly and fool
ishly, if not maliciously made," referred
to the actual condition of the world in
which we live. . Anybody who puts on
bis hat and goes out for a walk, or if too
feeble to go out, will take the trouble
to glance through a dally paper, can
verify this class of statements for him
self. - Will the editor of the Advocate
look up his New Testr.ment, take an
afternoon stroll in New York city (it
would be well to include the east side
tenement district and the Fifth avenue
in the course of the walk), and then
either justify or retract his charges? And
meanwhile, since he has brought against
us in his paper the injurious accusations
be nas, we ask mm in fairness to print
in his columns our reply. The New Na
tion has established a reputation for ac
curate statements which it is somewhat
jealous of, and there are a great many
nationalists among the Advocate's
readers, before whom we should be sor
ry to be placed in a false light.
Whether or not the Advocate shall at
the present time feel disposed to con
tinue this discussion, it will not be long
a Die to avoid it. ine new JNation and
those in sympathy with its aims, includ
ing a great company of Christian minis
ters, are of one ajcord la the determina
tion to press home upon the conscien
ces ot Christian men and women every
where, their peculiar duty, above that
of any others, to join with us in necking
immediately to reorganize the present
wicKea social ana industrial system, in
accordance with the spirit thai was in
Jesus. We are sure that we shall be able
to make it very plain to them that they
have no eth er choice save either to ab
jure the present social and industrial
system, or to abjure Christ.

The Tunnel at Niagara.
To cut throush seven thousand feet
of solid rock which has held back the
torrents of the Niagara river is the
task that the Cataract Construction
Company has undertaken. Last week
a total advance of 2G2 feet was made,
bringing the total excavation up to
4,733 feet in 13 months. This leaves
only 1,907 feet to complete the work
as originally intended, but in all prob
ability 300 feet more will be ex
cavated, brining the total length of
the tunnel up to an even 7,000 feet.
This is not the first attempt to utilize
the power of Niagara Falls. The
early French settlers built a mill be
side the rapids just above the falls.
In colonial times the llritish put up a
saw mill there and used it to cut tim
bers ior their fortifications. Later
the Stedman and Potter mills were
built, and still later two raceways
were built, supplying power to numer
About 10 years ago the Hydraulic
Canal Company cut a channel through
the rock about three-quarters ot a
mile long from the river bank: above
the falls to a point on the deep gorge
below. Standing on the suspension
bridge just below the tails the visitor
sees on the American side a score or
more of miniature cataracts, the wat
er in some cases dashing over thebrink
of the cliff, and in others pouring with
terrific force from holes cut in the
bank. They are fed by the hydraulic
canal, and before the water dashes
over the precipice it does its work in
tbe mills that fine the bank.
The hydraulic canal was a white
elephant. It was expensive work, and
it was Gnarly sold to satisfy a mort
gage some three years ago. It is 100
feet wide, nearly a mile long, and its
estimated force is 170,000 horse
All that, however, is only a drop in
the bucket to what the immense water
power hurled over the cAtaroet daily
is capable of, atid capitalists have
studied ways and means to avail
themselves of its possibilities. Finally
the present gicautic work was con
ceived. It waa determined to run a tun
nel from the surface of the water tunnel
below the falls to a point on the river
bank above. This tunnel is really
only a waste weir for the water which
will be drawn from tho river from
short surface canals, wheel pits and
cross tunnels, after performing its
service for man will pour out through
the tunnel into the river again, having
merely been diverted from its course
temporarily. The tunnel has three
sections. Shaft 1 was sunk directly
opposite the New York Central depot,
and after getting down 200 feet the
men began forcing their way eastward
and westward through the solid rock
with drills, dynamite, fnd picks.
Shaft 2 was sunk a!out brut a mile to
the eastward, and there the tunneling
was pushed both ways. Simultane
ously a great rent was made in the
face of tiie cliffs in the deep gorge just
below the new suspension bridge. On
an average 1,400 pounds of dynamite
are used everyday, or a car load every
10 days. New York Sun.
A irirvelou3 story comes from Da
kota of a discovery which has been
accidentally made in the mountains
northwest of Rapid City. It is stated
that there is a natural telephone line
between two mountains in the Black
On each side of a valley, 12 miles in
width, stand two high peaks, several
thousand feet high, which tower above
the other mountains and have long
been known as landmarks. They have
only on rare occasions been sealed, so
very little is known of their topogra
phy. Some little time ago two parties
started out, one for each peak, taking
with them heliographs for the purpose
of signaling to e;ich other across the
valley. The nscent was made, and
when the top was reached one of the
party on the north mountain was
surprised to hear voices which appar
ently came out of the air.
By changing his position he discov
ered that at a certain spot on the
mountain lie could hear the voicws,
but that in other positions he could
not hear them. Ho called the atten
tion of his party to the phenomenon,
and when the attention of the other
party had been attracted it was found
that an ordinary conversation was
plainly heard from one mountain top
to the other.
This may bo considered a rather
tall story to foist upon the intelligent
reader of the day, but Electricity
offers the following as an explanation:
The form of the mountain mi"ht
be considered (is serving tho
purposes ot elliptical reflect
ors of sound, the speakers
placing themselves in the foci at twtch
end of the eclipse. The low density of
the atmosphere at the altitude at
which the observers were would also
tend towards intensifying the sound.
The various whispering galleries in
England and the continent can be
quoted as showing how sound is mag
nified under certain conditions; an
other instance may be found in the
Mormon Temple in Salt Lake city.
This tho last is of enormous dimen
sions, is built in tbe form of a true
eclipse, and a person standing in the
foens at one end can carry on a con
versation in a whisper with another
person who places himself in the focus
at the other end.
An Electric Freight Locomotive.
The Thomson-Houston Company
exhibited at their works in Lynn,
Mass., the first freight locomotive of
good s'w.e that has been constructed.
The new locomotive is designed to
pull and shift freight cars for the
Whitin Machine Company at Whitins
ville, Mass. It is proposed to carry
by this means merchandise back and
forth from the railway station, a dis-
taijreof a mile and a half. I he total
weight of, the locomotive is 43,000
pounds, and the speod, when deliver
ing thirty-horse power at the draw
Dar, is nve miles an hour. J ins will
pull on a level fn i sis to eiclit hfr
ily load! frtitilii car, weighing from
l'(M) to 3 M) tons.
The exhibition waa a romnMs suc
cess in every way. The piece of track
used was a curve and an up grade, so
that drawing a given load ov-r it was
equivalent to drawing three times
that load on a straight and level
track. Two freight cars weighing
fifty-four and one-half tons were first
attached to the locomotive. They
were drawn easily around the curve
and up tbe grade, started, stopped
and backed without difficulty. This
experiment was in itself practically a
complete demonstration of the success
of the new machine. But severertests
were applied. Two more cars, bring
ing the weight up to ninety-seven tons,
and finally two more still, making a
weight of 163 tons, were added to the
train. Again the locomotive drew
them back and forth without any
apparently added difficulty whatever.
Some data of tho locomotive are
given below: Voltage of .locomotive,
500 volts; horse power at draw bar,
100; speed on level track when devel
oping above power, five miles per
hour; wheel base, 6 feet 4 inches; di

Rainfall and Population.
The distribution of population rela
tive to mean annual rain fall indi
cates not only the tendency of people
to seek arable lands, but their condi
tion as to general healthfulness. The
average annual rainfall in this coun
try is 29 0 inches, but the variations
range from zero to perhaps one hun
dred and twenty-five inches. Gauging
the distribution of tho population in
accordance with the annual average
rainfall in different localities, some in
teresting points are observable, not
only as to the number of inhabitants
in the areas calculated, but as to the
density of population. The greater
proport ion of the people of the United
States are living in regions in which
annual rainfall is between thirty and
fifty inches. Mr. Gannett cal
culates that about three fourths
of the inhabitants of the country
are found under these conditions;
and, further, that as the rainfall in
creases or diminishes, the population
diminishes rapidly. The density ol
population in rogions where the aver
age rainfall is between thirty and
forty indies is 43.1 per square mile;
in regions where it is from forty to fif
ty inches annually, the density is 25.1,
and in the arid regions of the West,
where the rainfall is less than twenty
inches, being two-lifths of the entire
area of the country, less than three
rer cent of the population finds its
home. The population has increased
rapidly in the regions having from
thirty to forty inches average annual
rainfall. The Popular Science Month'

Just Like a Bird.
The new flying machine, or "avla
teur," recently brought before the
Academic des Sciences, Paris, by M.
Gustave Trouve, is highly ingenious,
and a new departure in aeronautics,
but is only in its experimental stas.'e.
M. Trouve believes that none ef our
existing motors whether of steam,
electricity, or compressed air are
capable of propelling a vehicle through
the air, without the support of bal
loons or aeroplanes sucn as Mr. Max
im is now working at. In order to do
vise such a motor, he took up the
principle of the Bourdon tube, which
ts employed as a manometer or
pressure gauge. This tube is
of a horseshoe form, and when
filled with the gas whose press
ure 13 to be measured, the points
of the tube approach to or recede
from each otlieraccordingasthepres
ure of the gas falls or rises.
M. Trouve saw that he could trans
form the tube into a motor, by filling
it with an inflammable mixture of
hydrogen gas and common air, and
exploding the mixture with proper
cartridges fixed on a revolving barrel.
At each explosion the pressure of the
gas in the tube would fall, and the
pomts in the tube nppronch, while on
refilling the tube with gas between the
explosions the points would recede.
In this way a reciprocating motion of
the points woald be obtainable as
long as the supply of hydrogen and
the exploding cartridges lasted.
lo utilize this motion, he fastens an
expanded artificial wing to each point
of the tube: and these wings rise and
fall as the points approach or recede,
thus beating the air like a bird's wings.
A Warlike Clock.
A novel clock is now being exhibit
ed by the Watchmakers' Union in
London. It is of wood, beautifully
carved, and stands six feet in height.
Lie case la a perfect fort in miniature
and, instead of a bell and striking
hammer, the hours are announced by
a bugler, who emerges from a door at
one side of the fort and blows the call
to assemble and march.
Almost instantly the doors onen on
all side; a regiment of automatic
soldiers, six abreast, march out, wheel
to the left, stop a few seconds to
mark time," and then march
through another part of the fortress
to the hnrracks. These marches and
counter-niarches occur each hour,
says the Chicago, Press.
Jt they come out to announce the
hour of 1 o'clock, one soldier lire hU
tiny gun; at 2 o'clock two soldier.- lire
their pieces, increasing with the hour
until thetwelve leaders lire their guns,
the rear ranks bowing their heads and
pointing with their bayonets toward
the dial of the clock.
Ice Made By Natural Gas.
An inventor in Buffalo, N. Y.. has
devised a process for making ice by
utilizing the intense cold created by
the explosion of natural gas when lib
orated from tho high pressure at which
it issues irom the wells. In tneexneri-
mental plant the gas is used at its
initial pressure ot from 150 to 200
pounds to drive a small ongiiie. After
use in tho engine thegas exhausts into
a close!! box, and the expansion gen
erates sufficiently cold to form Blabs
ot ice tnree incites tnieK to tne amount
of three-quarters of a ton in a day. It
is claimed that the principle can be
npiflicd economically oiA large scale.

Dear Sir: Referring to yours of June Oth, 1891, will say, that we have
tested one of your Eureka Gates in right-of-way fence, east of Waterloo, and I
learned from Supervisor Moran that it works nicely. I believe that it is the
" coming Gate," and is the best in use for right-of-way and farm feaces.
