Tim railroad companies who own the

the court of highest resort. The New
Jersey odurt of errors and appeals has
reversed the judgment of the supreme
court In the railroad tax cases and sus
tained the tax law of 181. Tlui court
takes the ground that the taxing power
of tlui legislature is limited only oy con
stitutional provision and Irropcalabla leg.
Ulatiro contracts. Aside from these thu
courts have nothing to do with thu
policy or justice of systems of
taxation. It finds that the sop-
nratu classification of rallroaus for
the purpose of taxation is entirely proper ,
that assessment upon value rather than
roslls legitimate , and that the apportion
ment of the tax for state nnd municipal
purposes does not atVeet the validity of
the law. It nUo holds that so long as thu
charters of railroads are subject to re
peal or modification a provision in thorn

Wo have waited patiently for a denial
from Auditor Babcock and his friends of
the charge made in Monday's BEE con
cerning malfeasance in the office of the
state auditor of public accounts. Up to
Lhu Hrcscnt time we have waited in vain.
Xo denial has come because none can bo
The persistent violation by Auditor
Babcock of the constitutional proviso
regarding the collection and retention of
fees , makes it the duty of the governor to
promptly suspend him from the oflico of
trust which ho has abused for
personal ends. In retaining several
thousands of dollars of the state funds ,
which ought long ago to have been cov
ered into thp treasury , Mr. Uabcock has
made himself liable to impoaclunonti
When to this ofl'enso is added the un
authorized issue of warrants on the stnto
treasury in advance of the levy , the case
against the auditor becomes so serious
that the governor cannot well afford to
ignore It.
Auditor Babeock is reported as saying
that he is only following precedent. The
precedent referred to can only mean that
carried on by ex-Auditor Lcidtkc , whoso
defalcation in the office which Mr. Babcock -
cock now holds made him a fugitive from
justice and his bondsmen several thous
and dollars poorer. Such a precedent is
not a safe one to follow.
Foolish Itravailo.
The blood-thirsty defenders of the
rights of the United States to tax Cana
dian fish landed in this country and of
thu right of American fishermen to have
free use of Canadian fishing grounds and
ports are talking some very arrant non
sense when they urge armed reprisals
nnd forcible demonstrations against Great
Britain because she chooses to dispute
our position on the fishery question.
Armed reprisals mean warand a war on
the waters between the wooden tubs
which wo dignify by the name of
a navy and Great Britain's iron
monsters would bo concluded in short
metro very much to our disadvantage.
We would run about as much chance of
success as Greece in a conlliot with
united Europe. No well regulated life
insurance company would take n risk at
any premium on the life of an American
naval commander sailing the best vessel
in our navy to engage the lowest classed
English sloop-of-war. Compared with
England's navy wo are deficient in two
all important particulars. Wo lack guns
and we lack ships to carry
them. Wo also need a few sea
coast defenses to protect our ports. If
we had all these , we might bo able to
carry a chip on our shoulder for other
countries to knock off. But oven then it
would bo poor policy on an issue of salt
codfish , fresh bait and protection to Now
England fishmongers.
So far as the west is concerned she de
clines to boil over with indignation be
cause the schooner "Sarah Jane" of
Maine is denied fishing privileges and
perquisites on the coast of a country which
for more than a year has been patiently
waiting tor congress to renew the
fishery treaty which wo permitted to ex
pire under President Arthur's adminis
tration. The New England representa
tives misjudge the temper of this section
of the 'country if they imagine that
sensible citizens will lash themselves into
fury over the question whether the
products of free ocean arn to be taxed
when brought into ports by friendly
neighbors. When the protection idea is
expanded so as to cover codfish , mackerel
and herring it becomes very attenuated.
A reciprocity treaty with Canada would
have prevented the entire trouble
which wo have drawn down
o.i ourselves. Now that Messrs. Fryo and
his New England comrades have precipi
tated this international dispute , they
must not expect to precipitate war as the
only settlement of the question. The
game is not worth the ammunition. Be
sides , there is suoh a thing as starting out
gunning and coming back seriously dis
mantled by the discharge of weapons in
the hands of the hunted.
A Brave
Senator Dolph , of Oregon , has so far
failed in his little scheme to pass a bill ,
forfeiting a small patch of the Northern
Pacific laud grant , which the company
lias no use for , and has never earned , in
order to confirm the title to millions of
other acres which that company now
fraudulently holds. Senator Van Wyck
promptly took the floor and exposed the
true inwardness of this aitfully drawn
measure. Ho offered us an amendment
a bill , reported in the house , restoring to
the public domain { Or" settlement alf of
tk ° 'Tnmense grant not earned at the
time specified , in the cranting
act. This raised sucil a tempest
of opposition that the senator
to test the sense of the s'onatc substitute ! !
itti iluieiidnieht to which no reasonable
and honest publio representative could
object. It was that all lauds hot earned
at the date of passage of the ucnding bill
should bo declared forfeited. But even
this fair proposition was vigorously de
nounced bysuch men as Edmunds , Cook-
roll , Dolph , Mitchell , and Platt , and Us
object will probably bn defeated.
The limit of the Northern Pacific
laud grant expired on the 4th
of July , 187 ! ) . On that date
every acre of land not earned
by coiibtiuction should have passed into
the hands of the government. Twenty
millions of acres are now hold Illegally
from settlement by this great corpora
tion whoso paid attorneys swarm in the
bcnato chamber and succeed In obstruct
ing all legislation which will loosen the
clutch of the monopoly managers on
their fraudulent possessions. In its last
party platform , the republican party
pledged Itself to secure the forfeiture of
all unearned railway grants. Senator
Van U'yck for Nebraska at least has
kept the nurty pledge. Day in
and out ho has labored to
fulfil the promlso made by his
party at Chicago , demanded by thu
interests of n vast section of country , and
supported by his own honest convictions ,
lie has endured Iho abuse of the mon
opoly prosami tlio attacks of the rail
road attorneys in the houses of congress.
Tim sontimeut of the country and the
approval of his constituents is back of
him in the manly fight which ho is
making to preserve the publio domain
from the greed of the railroad land
shnrks , and to restore to settlers the rich
horitaeo of land , which jobbery and.the
lobby'aro withholding from public settle-
muni. .
WILL the ? foot friends of General Miles
11 their business to deaounce Crook's'
methods of Apache warfare , giro us their
honest opinion of results since Miles took
his scat in the saddle along the Mexican
border ? There hare been hurrying and
scouting and high-sounding reports of
what was and what was not to bo done ,
but Geronlmo still skips front canyon to
mountain lop leaving a trail of blood in'
his wako with the blue coats miles away.
Time will prove the value cf Crook's
mothdd of warfare with the Apaches ,
which of necessity differed widely from
the means used to subdue the hostiles of
the plains. _
ItesurrcctliiK Adam.
The Presbyterian general assembly of
the south has been recently holding a
kind of post mortem examination on the
remains of Adam. The controversy arose
over the question of creation by evolu
tion or by special acts. The general
assembly was divided into two hostile
camps , uaeh sworn to annihilate the other
in the cause of truth. A committee re
port in due course of business came be
fore the assembly , declaring that Adam's
body was directly fashioned by Almighty
God without any natural animal parentage
of any kind and of matter previously
created of nothing , " ami that any other
belief will lead to the "denial of doctrines
fundamental to the faith. " The anti-
uvolutionigts in the southern assembly
propose , in a word , to keep science away
from religion , while the other side
answer with a proposition to keep relig
ion out of the field of science. A German
thinker once remarked that the Bible
tells how to go to heaven nnd not how
the heavens go , and this is the position of
Professor Wopdrow , of Columbia theolog
ical seminary , whom tlie anti-evolutionists
arn determined to drive out the Presby
terian ministry. "Tlio scriptures , " said
L > r. Woodrow , iu his speech before the
assembly , "teach only two things what
man is to believe concerning God , and
what duty God requires of man. . . .
Has not the church always been in error
where it has undertaken to deny scientific
truth ? Would it not be an error now to
make suoh absolute deliverances about
the creation of man ? " Notwithstanding
Dr.Woodrow'seloquontspeechthe assem
bly settled the matter by a vole of 17 ! ! to
15 ! that Adam was born without any ani
mal parentage , and ' at the act of crea
tion did not take any perceptible time.
Thou Adam's body was once more buried ,
and the assembly turned its attention to
burying Woodrow by declaring his theo
logical school closed. Dr. Woodrow
is now enjoying a sort of religious mar
tyrdom which has become both popular
and profitable of late years , and may bo
said to bo on the high road to fortune. A
large church in a largo city will bo all
that is needed to secure him fame. Ho
will accomplish as much good in such a
position as in a theological seminary ,
says the Springfield Itcpublicnn , "by
liberalizing the views of southern men
who believe that science is attempting to
put a jack screw under the portals of ev
erlasting truth and to dislodge the uni
verse. "
Cornell's Victory.
Cornell university has not been winning
many races , or base ball and fool ball
contests recently , but she scored a victory
last week which is worth several cham
pionships in the athletic arena. The de
cision of Judge Lyon in the Fiske-Mc-
Graw will caso'securos to the university a
magnificent endowment , amounting , it is
estimated , to $1,000,000. The ease was a
very singular and disagreeable one. The
daughter of a wealthy benefactor of the
institution , who was plainly on her death
bed from consumption , was married
to iProfessor Fisku , then tlte librar
ian of the university. By the mar
riage contract the husband relinquished
all right to dispose of his wife's prop
erty. After her death , however , he set
up the claim that the will she had made
giving the bulk of her property to Cor
nell could not .stand because of a provis
ion in the charter of the university that
limited its possessions to $3,000,000.
Ho contended , therefore , Unit the will
should be set aside , the effect of which
would have been to giyo him a larger
share of his dead wife's fortune. The
largo amount of morny involved ,
the circumstances of the marriage , and
thu relations of the parties in the case to
the university , invested the trial with ex
traordinary interest , and the outcome has
been awaited with great anxiety by all
the friends of Cornell. Naturally , few
took Professor Fisko's side , though before
his marriage ho had been popular among
the .students. But the marriage was re
garded as a murcnijfti-y speculation
Oli hi ? part , and when it ap.
pcarc-d that ho was attempting
to divert his wife's bequest from
the university to himself , the hostility
became1 very bitter. Nor has it been les
soned by thu continued' absence in Eu
rope of Fiske , as if unwilling to face his
former associates. In any case lib waste
to have $300,00J ( by the will , and the gen
eral feeling was that this large sum was
quite sufficient. Tins splendid endow
ment tidddd io Cornell's present sub
stantial foundation will make the univer
sity next to Columbia the rich

already been niadu for the expenditure
of the money. They provide for notable

Tree claims iu the Watcrtown land dis
trict , are receiving more attention this
spring than ever before , as people have
learned that they will lose them unless
the law is compiled with.
Dr. Carroll Corson and Joseph Hiilsoy ,
the former a prominent physician , well
connected and having a largo circle of
friends , have been arrested , charged with
the attempted burning of the Sheridan
house at Bismarck , Friday night. The
evidence against them is said to be dam
Sam Wunder , n farmer living a few
miles north of Ipswich , lost his house and
contents by fire one day last week. His
wife and child were in the house at the
time , and in trying to save it the flames
caught their dresses , nearly burning Mrs.
Wunder's-clothes from her body before
slio could extinguish them. Both of her
hands were burned to the bone.
The Eight-hour Movement ,
The Current.
The eiaht-hour movement failed. No
man really knows why. Possibly its defeat
was due to the throwing of the Chicago
bomb. Certainly that crime made a re
sumption of work at any price almost a
public necessity. Men were in no mood
to discuss the right and wrong of any
question , much less one that touched
their pockets.Vith the going back to
work , which wns necessary , of course , the
workingman abandoned his cause. If
eight hours eventuated , thu concession
canio voluntarily from the employer , and
could not last in the face of overwhelm
ing competition by moro greedy or less
capable manufacturers. The dyed-in-
the-wool "boss" or man-driver , whether
rich or poor , has chuckled his voiee
register down an octavo in celebrating
the surrender of Labor , and the peace
able philosopher has been equally glad
when ho has reckoned the blessings of
peace. Why did not the men ask for
nine hours at nlno hours' pay ? That is a
mystery the Current has tried in Vitin to
solve. Probably they reserved nine
hours for a hoped-for compromise. The
eight-hour movement came on blindly.
It was like a tidnl-wavo ; It was
from the bottom upward ; it roiled the
waters w > that no man could see clearly ;
no prophet could forecast its length ,
strength or duration. It has ended as do
nine out of ten movements that originate
the same wny , for they may succeed only
DV revolution. Against the success of the
eight-hour idea was ranged phalanx after
phalanx of the upper classes of society.
Nearly every man in America who works
less than ton hours a day vowed that Iho
principle was wrong. In fact , we re
member that the eight-hour attempt of
twenty years ago came nearer success
did not so soil Itself with the
odium of tlio classes that work fahort
hours. Now labor has go no back ; he has
signed a pledge to rat his union , and ho
half believes ho has done wrong in the
pa t. With this penitent attitude good
capital is half-pleased , though still very
angry , and a working arrangement is
effected only through the escape-valve of
a right valiant pursuit of tlio anarchists.
Let the bomb-thrower reap his whirl

Too Much Taxation.
The t'lirnrnf.
The idea of increasing the national
taxes when there is a whole year's sur
plus on hand now must strike any
thinker ns peculiarly characteristic of ait
assemblage of threu hundred and twenty-
flvo congressional hjpoorilcs , dodgers ,
and demagogues who have been able to
sit stupid.y during one of the greatest
peaceful social upheavals of recent de
cades. What caused the upheaval ? Hard
times. What intensified thu hard times ?
Lack of cuiTonev. Why did not these
mis-reiiresentativcs empty that treasury
by paying debt ? Because they were ,
derelict , btohd. ignorant ovorythinel
Now they talk about increasing the in
ternal revenue tax by putting n charge

of bogus butterWo have all
paid our good money for it when money
would not have hired us to cat it know
ingly. But wo do not tax cholenx
patients. . Wo do not tax a man who has

who has bogus butter in ins larder ? Tim
trade is immense. Imagine a buttcriuo-

not the whisky and tobacco tyranny

Tlio Indian "Medicine MOII'H Fake"
Whlcb Is About to Take in
Country Towns.
A No\v York Special says : The secre
tary of the New York medical society
has been instructed to formulate a denun
ciation of pretended Indian doctors
who , during the last few summer seasons
have so multiplied throughout the coun
try. They travel from place to place ,
settingup an imitation of un Indian camp
in each , drawing crowds by moans of
a crude variety show of singing , dancing
and athletic feats , and then selling medi
cines composed of a stew of herbs made
in a kettle over a tire in the presence
of the spectators. Sometimes mystic rites
or savage incantations accompany the
manufacture , of tlio cure-all , and the
superstitious and ignorant are so im
pressed that they part with their dollars
freely. The Medical Society will direct
the attention of all the county medical
associations of the United States to the
fact that , although t'.iese quacks are care
ful not to formally announce themselves
as physicians , they do usually figure as
"medicine men , " and are in effect
medical practitioners in the eye of the
law. In some instances the adventurer
is a degenerate physician , entitled by
diploma to practice , but that is unusual ,
and the societies will be urged to prosecute -
cute all the rest. The assertion w.llbe
made that great harm and small good
arc done to their patients , because the
8tuIV sold is almost invariably a simple
cathartic , likelier than not unsuited to
the disease.
Full a do/en tent concerns of this sort
are being lilted out now in this city tor
the season. One venture of uncommon
elaborateness is in preparation at one of
the worst of the Chatman square concert
halls. The boss is Henry Domlena , alias
"the Pawnee , " a big man with a swathy
complexion and abundant long hair. He
made a tour last year witii an Indian
medicine camp under the name of "Big
Wonder , " ana his pecuniary success leu
him into the present extension of his bus
iness. Ho has hired ten persons , consist
ing of five young women who will per
form in Indian dances ; one very old and
ugly one for a witch and fortune teller ;
two rnalu athletes will appear in the more
acrobatic feats of the mummeries , and
two comic vocalists. All the women and
some of the men will be stained
a copper color and pass for In
dians. There will also be half-
a-dozen real Indians from Canada , who
will make and sell baskets and bead
work. The of the place
whore this party id being formed led your
correspondent to learn that moro direct
methods than medical qaaokcry are to bo
resorted to in swindling the people. He
applied for thu exclusive three-card-
rnout.H privilege along with the camp , do
ing so by prosy , and Doadcns said :
"There is going to be a card racket , and
I'm talking with a sharper for the biz ;
but my price is $ . > 0 a week , which he is
willing to give. But he ain't got no
boodle to nut up for security , and I ain't
giving that privilege away for an uncer
tainty. A clever man can scoop in a
hundred a week , over expenses , and It
beats following a circus. The chumps
just wander round our camp with their
pockoibooku open and all you've got to
do is help yourself. "
Who Guvo Her Away ?
At a largo and would-be fashionable
wedding roccutl.y in a Massachusetts
town the solemnity was rudely disturbed
by a rather unexpected answer. The
bride had entered on her uncle's arm ,
and Was mot by the groom at the ohancol.
The unulo then retired and took a scat in
the body of the house. All wont well
until the clergyman asked the question :
"Who giYfllh this woman to bo wedded
to this man ? " He paused for an answer ,
and the uncle rose and , placing his hands
on the pew in front of him , said , in ac
cents louder than arc common at wed
dings , "Mol"
