Prohibition Ilcfbrc the Supreme Court.
A great deal of Interest is felt regard
ing the fate of the prohibition caecs before
fore the supreme court of the United
States , which involve the question of
the constitutionality of prohibitory laws
and also the question of the right of the
manufacturers of liquor to compensation
for their property rendered valueless
jy such laws. Lust week the court re-
! uscd to advance the cases on the docket
'or immediate hearing and decided to
withhold , the decision of the case al
ready argued until all hvo boon pro-
BO n ted , action which each party to the
issues construed ns favorable to its side ,
towa and Kansas are immediately in
terested in the decision of those cases ,
but it will of course concern every state
which hns a prohibitory law , and have
a most important , bearing upon the
question of prohibitory legislation gen
As far hn the question of constitution
ality is concerned , it is not expected
that the buprcmo court will decide
against this legislation , though it must
bo conceded that there are very cogent
reasons why it might do BO. There haj
generally been , however , a disposition
to Construe libemlly the police powers
of a state and its right to enact laws in
tended to protect the health of its citi-
/ens , among which prohibitory laws
have been included. It is more than
probable that the supreme court will not
interfere with this well-established
recognition of the police functions of the
stato. But the question of compensation
is a now one. In a decision rendered
about a year ago by Judge Brewer , of the
United States courttho constitutionalitj
of the prohibitory law was afflmcdbuti !
was held that before the law could g <
into effect it was the duty of the state tc
compensate the manufacturers of intoxi
cants for property which would be
rendered worthless by the law. This ii
obviously a most important matter , ii
fact only less important , as affecting the
whole policy of prohibitory legislation
than the question of constitutionality.
This decision was widely rommentec
on at the time and very generally ap
proved as just. A concession of thcpowei
to prohibit docs not necessarily carr ;
with it the right to confibcato privati
property without compensation , am
it is not difficult to sco where the admis
sion of such a principle migh
lead to. The manufacture of liquor ;
having been carried on in a state as i
legitimate business , paying its share o
the revenues of the state , and rccoivinf
the recognition and sanction which an
implied in state regulation and super
vision , it seems clearly unjust that those
engaged in the business should on the
demand of a majority vole be oompellee
to discontinue their bu&incsi , with the
consequent sacrifice of the capital the ;
have invested in plant and machinery
without any redress in compensator ;
damages. The wrong involved in sucl
n principle booms f > o plain that it is al
most impossible to doubt that the su
prcmc court Avill sustain the decisioi
of the circuit judge. In that case
prohibitory , legislation will become
a much more berious busincs
than it has been , and will doubtlcsi
give way in most of those states whicl
have it to the license and local optioi
policy. It would bo extremely dilllcul
to enact a prohibition law anywhere i
it should become nccchsary to accom
( pany it by an approprintion'bill.
The Evangelical Alliance.
There is to bo held in Wasbingtoi
next December u. convention of rcpre
bentativcs of the Protestant churches o
the United States , the object of whicl
Is to advance the policy of alliance
for the purpose of more systematic ane
thorough church work among the pco
pie , which really had its beginning a
a general movement in the spring o
last year. There has existed an evan
gelical alliance for forty years , but it
work hns been mainly contlncd to Nov
England. The effort now making is t
give it national scope. All churcl
people assuredly , and everybody who i
favorable to the growth of moralit ;
among the people , will feel an intercs
in this movement , which contemplate
a general , united and systematic plai
among the Protestant churcheu-
drawing the masses into closer relation
with the religious bodies , while at th
same time aiding to promote the in :
provcmcntof social conditions.
How necessary this missionary work i
will bo fcccn in the statement of the secretary
rotary to the National Evangelical Alii
unco that of the sixty million people 5
the United States thirty million neve
enter a church. One-half the people e
this chrlclian land are wholly indillci
out to any form of religious teaching
and a very considerable proportion <
this number knows absolutely nothin
about it. Clearly hero at homo is a fiol
and a demand for Christian clTort nuic
more inviting nnd more vitally ncce :
sary than are presented in lands thou
ands of miles away. What is the oxph
nation of this htato of affairs ? The see
rotary of the alliance gives it in thes
words : ' 'This calamity is due to th
negligence and inctllTcrenco of tli
church leaders in general. ' .
was the separation of tli
churches which led to the it
difference now existing. Protestantisi
to-day js disorganized , divided into jai
ring and contending sects und dcnom
nations , jealous and fearful of cachothc
because there is no mutual undorbtani
ing. " So bovero and candid anarraigi
mont , authoritatively made , ought 1
rcceis-o the earnest attention of churcl
men. It ought to suggest to every dc
nomination to ask ittclf whether tli
allegation docs not justly apply to i
own derelictions and shortcomings. ' .
ought to induce every minister to can
fully review his work and examine tl :
policy of his church management , i
ordur Ui satisfy himbolf whether the n
suits of the work have boon nil tin
could reasonably bo expected nnd tl
policy is such as will attract and into
cst the people. The church needs
have itsfaults pointoel out , ai
such candid setting forth of i
defects as that above quoted wide
do it no harm , but should rathe
be productiva of much good. Evci
church has a small minority who HI
ever on the alert for these who are i
want of their good ofllces , but there is
large holf-satisfled majority who will t
yory little , and in very many cases tli
minister gives more of his aittontioi
nnd perhaps his sympathy also , to the
ntter than to the former cldM. Ono of
ho. alms of the Evangelical Alliance is ,
o correct this by Infusing zcnl Into
ionic missionary work that would ut-
rnct nnd receive the Interest of nil In
he churches.
The nllhmco Is n progre slvo move
ment. The eminent christlnn teachers
vho hiwo Issued the call for the Wash-
ngton convention recognize that there
nro new conditions Incident to our mar
velous material growth and the changes
n our population nnd In the habits nnd
iOmpcr of the people which require
some changes In the methods of chrls-
inn work. Among these thoyovidenlty
regnrd co-operntlon as ( of the first 1m-
) ortunco.
There nre gHnfpscs of this word of
ate dodging nmong our exchanges. It
noans universal language. Volnpuk
was gotten up with malice aforethought
> y a German professor named John
Martin Schleycr , who knows llfty-flvo
anguagcs. The new tongue is an cx-
.ract . of all Uicso , and must bo taken in
very small doses at first. No system
would bo strong enough to absorb much
of It at a time. It will bo observed , on
lose inspection , that Volnpuk is
, hus n very appropriate namo. Most
anyono'on the spur of the moment would
associate it with indisposition of the
stomach. To follow this line of thought
a little further wo will give a sentence :
'Menado' bnl Pukl bal. " This does not
mean that man suffers a distressing head
ache after nn ice-cream festival , but
somolhingquitodifferent , namely : "Ono
angungo for one mankind. "
Of the hundreds of languages in exist
ence Volapuk is the only ono that has
jeen deliberately willed into existence.
The rest have grown up n good deal like
Topsy. Volapuk has already gained a
number of enthusiastic students who
predict for it a great futuro. Professor
Schloyor brought forth , Volapuk
in 1877. nud it Is now claimed it
Is spoken by ono million people
In Europe and studied by 2,000 students
in the university of Vienna alone. This
scorns like rapid progress , but when ono
considers the number of inhabitants in
the world it will take some time before
the language can bo strictly called uni
versal. At the rate of 1,000,000 per decade -
cado Volnpuk would require about fif
teen billion years to gain the whole
earth. Making tin abrupt comparison
that naturally suggests itself , it is quito
evident that Volapuk is far behind Jay
Gould in powers of acquisition.
The only place in this country , so far
known , whore Volapuk 1ms become
in any sense epidemic is Chicago. It is
paid a good many of the literary people
there are wrestling with it. A French
gentleman by the name of Moutonnicr
[ Muttonhead ? ) gave a lecture on it the
other day. From his remarks it is
learned that the Volapuk vocabulary ia
made up largely of the English , Ger
man , Slavonic and Romanic tongues ,
with a sprinkling of others. The lan
guage has only ono declension , ono con
jugation , a very simple syntax and
there are no exceptions. Students
who have struggled with Greek
und Latin , whoso grammars nro
mostly made up of exceptions will espe
cially understand the beauty of this
provision. It may bo of interest to give
a few samples of Volapuk words : Book
is buk , from the English ; pen is pen ,
from the same ; table is tab , French ;
chair , stul , German ; needle , nad ,
German ; animal , niva , Roumanian ;
for , ibo , Russian , etc. If u lover
wishes to say that ho loves ho ex
claims , lofob. It is doubtful whether
American' girls will consider ( his an
improvement on the expression to whicb
they have beeomo accustomed. Good
morning is ' glidi sol , " a pretty phrase ,
which will doubtless become popular
nt once.
Volapuk is also frco from idiomatic
forms. The only man we know of whc
could master the universal language
would bo George Francis Train.
IT is reported that a granddaughtei
of Salmon P. Chase con templates adopt
ing the stage us a career. The young
lady is Miss Ethel Sprague , daughter ol
ox-Governor Spraguc , of Rhode Island
and Kate Chase Sprague , nnd she ii
said to have exceptional dramatic tnl
cnt. She has received n thorough edu
cation , almost wholly in Europe , ant
1ms all the accomplishments necessary
to any requirements which the profes'
sion of an actress would impose. She
sensibly proposes , also , to begin in s.
subordinate position nnd work up
which is much better than starting ai
the top and being compelled to worl
downward. Miss Sprague may provt
to bo a most worthy acquisition to tin
stage , and perhaps fill a place then
more usefully than she could in anj
other capacity , but ' the Bug
gestion will como that but fo ;
the unfortunate domestic troubles whicl
estranged her parents , with its disas
troub consequences to the fortunes o
both , she might have the assurance o
a career better suited to the grandchih
of the great financier and jurist a ca
rccr in which her talontb nnd accom
plishmcnts would not be useless , and ii
which she could huvo rank and hone :
without striving for them.
THE proclamation of PresidentCleve
land , designating the 21th of Novombci
for observance as a day of nntiona
thanksgiving , has hardly received dui
attention as a reverential ncknowledg
incut of what the American people havi
to be thankful for. There has for thi
most part been n stereotyped tone abou
thanksgiving proclamations which bug
gcvted that ono differed from another ii
little more than the change of dates
but that of Mr. Cleveland is ovidentl ;
original , and whether the production o
the president or the bccreUiry of slat
it is clear that the author'b heart was ii
the work and that the feelings o
humility nnd gratitude were very active
It is an earnest invocation to thankful

A republican paper in the First district ,
speaking of Captain Humphrey , say * ho docs

The Liberty Journal assets that John S.

This is a case of assertion vs. fact , with the
weight of evidence in favor of the defend

"Tho democracy of the Third district , "
says the Lincoln Democrat , "did well In ad

In the eastern states it has become the cus

term after term , nnd for such n ono to med

the end of his term. "
The Lincoln Democrat "has no hesitancy
in saying for Attorney General Lccso that

will sco that it is tried nnd everything will

Mason takes the same ground. If the board
of transportation can establish rates It

majority. When the returns were all in ,
however , Ashel wasn't the sheriff-elect.
After deducting the number of votes ho re
ceived from the number of promises made
him , ho arrived at the Inevitable conclusion
that there were 'seven hundred of the
cst liars in Madison county that ever
lived. ' "
The Norfolk News gives the following true
picture of the situation : "In almost every
county in the state the election of county
treasurer has become n fight ns to what banker
or banks shall have the use of the county
funds. Republican bankers are fighting re
publican candidates and democratic bankers
arc fighting democratic candidates , for the
simple and only reason that they cannot se
cure the county deposits if the man they op
pose is elected. Our present law makes the
county money a bone for the bank dogs to
, fight over. It should bo changed so that the
bank that pays the most for the privilege and
puts up the best bond shall bo the designated
depository of the county funds. Such n law
would relieve the treasurer from a burden of
responsibility and make him only nn execu
tive officer. It would remove all danger ol
loss to the county from the peculations of a
of a dishonest treasurer or the misfortune ol
ono who is plucked by his friends. The law
should bo changed. "
The county funds is the fatbono in the
battle In Cuss county , nnd the fight is n trifle
personal and somewhat peculiar. One of the
candidates has tumbled into n warm comer ,
and his position is explained by the Plaits-
mouth Journal in the following : "So It is
worth n round hundred dollars to Treasurer
Campbell for the Journal to keep quiet on
the subject of the county deposits , Is itl
Well , if this is all you want , how much
better It would have been never to have em
bezzled that money. But , not denying that
the Journal might bo tempted were
the offer big enough , it looks ns II
the treasurer wanted to slip In again
without making a fair "divy" of the gains
from his illegal trafllo in county funds.
Zounds ! What a depth of infamy a man
must como to when ho Is willing to attempt
to purchase the silence of newspaper ! Hon
est , now , Mr. Campbell , what do you think of
yourself I It was bad enough to get awoy
with ijsi.OOO or $45,000 in interest on county
funds , but wasn't it oven beneath the dig
nity of a high-bred thief to try to bribe into
silence an honest criticism of your doingsi"

Another Krrntlo Iiooturc.
George Francis Train , philosopher , egotist ,
traveler , linguist , atheist , ornnk or lunatlo us
the world may be pleased to call him , nil-
dressed - nn Dudtcneo that com
pletely llllfd the auditorium of Exposition
hall last night. Mr. Train has lost none of
his marvellous eloquence or Rift of repartee
during his long years of Hllcncc. lit fact his
brlUlniui.v of oratory never hone brighter
than at the present time and his auditors lust
night were very liberal and enthusiastic la
the applause they bestowed upon him.
Mr. Train arrived nt precisely twcnty-flvo
minutes after eight and his api > ownnco wai
the signal for cheers , long continued. Ho
was accompanied by ex-Governor Sauudcrs ,
three little girls and o messenger boy bear
ing two baskets , ono containing button-hold
bonucts nnd the otlior Delaware grapes.
Governor Saunders Introduced the speaker
ns ono who twcnty-flvo years ago predicted
Omaha's greatness and who was greatly In
strumental 1ft the establishment of the muni
cipality. The growth of the city had fully
demonstrated the correctness of Mr. Train's
foresight nnd he would tell the citizens of
Omaha In what yet they were lacking.
Mr. Train was dressed in n black cut-away
coat , whlto vest , black trousers , patent
leather pumps from the tops of which peeped
bright scarlet stockings. Ho were lavender
gloves and the usually bunch of llowora
adorned the lapel of his coat. Mr. Train was
greeted with great applausu when ho arose
und iif the following couplet paid his respects
to Governor Sauudcrs :
"Great in the senate , great in the state ,
Ho who follows Suuudcrs , takes the
Train too late. "
Mr. Train then followed his usual cus
tom and presented Governor Saumlers ,
the thrcertittlo girls nnd the reporters with
tiny bouquets , paying n high tribute to the
press ropresenatlves. Then he asked the
few people in the gallery to take seats below
"Just for sociability's sake.,1
Mi" Train began by saying that the most
uoblo clement of character a man could pos
sess was grit bull dog grit. That was the
secret of his own HUCCCSS. Mover stick to
any ono sect , but rather seek individuality.
No man could afford to huvo his mind
swayed by the opinions of others. Ho then
launched out into a dibcussion of the possi
bilities of Omahnnnd drew several "pictures"
on the blackboard and by word of mouth
demonstrating what nn almost boundless ter
ritory was naturally nnd geographically trib
utary to Omaha. Ho said that no ono but
himself fully comprehended what n great
country lay between this city und Denver ,
nnd to illustrate told the story of the English
man who attempted to walk to Pikes Peak
from Denver and jcturn before breakfast.
He was found late In the afternoon about
half way between preparing to ford u creek
three feet wide , nnd when askun why ho
didn't Jump across replied that distances
were so deceiving that ho did not propose to
attempt to leap across what was undoubtedly
a mammoth river. Mr. Train said he could
see what the future hod in store for Omuha
as plainly us ho saw it twenty-five years ago ,
and knew that it would bo n city
of a half million In twenty years
if nil the Paxtons , the McShanes ,
the Armours and nil capitalists would put
their shoulder to the wheel of pi ogress and
push together.
The speaker then sjioko of his addresses
made in Now York , Chicago and Kansas City
in behalf of the anarchists and how ho forced
the police and military to pay their admis
sion at the door , and said that no officer of
the law had as much right to inaugurate a
riot as the lowliest laborer. Ho paid a high
tribute to the love of law and order that ever
characterizes the majority of laboring men
and this Bcntiuicut drew forth tremendous
Mr. Train next turned his attention to what
ho was pleased to term the serfdom existing
in republics , especially in the United States.
Ho showed now the minority in the last pres
idential election were nonenitics , they having
absolutely no influence in the management of
public affairs. He showed how women were
degraded by being refused the right of fran
chise nnd said that in refusing them that
right men set the stamp of ignominy upon
them nnd mndo them inoro debased than the
emancipated slaves and on an equity with
convicts nnd savages.
Mr. Train then announced that ho had been
born on the top of the mountain and could sco
down both sides , while Idiots were born on
the side. This conceit canned great laugh
ter. Every enduring thing in this world was
gained by steps and not by a single leap. The
pyiamids were built by steps and even the
mountains toiled upward" in the night. All
the monicil men of Omaha should unite in
the effoit to push the city's interest und then
it would bo the metropolis of the
now world. "Tho trouble with you
men of Omaha , " said Mr. Train , "is that
you've got a gold wfrtch in your pocket nnd
tell the world it's pewter. That u pretty way
to establish your credit , isn't it I"
The s | > cuker then touched on a variety of
subjects both political , domestic and scien
tific , nnd finally reached "tho anarchists , "
Which was advertised as his subject for the
evening. Mr. Train exhibited copies
of his paper which was suppressed in
Chicago and read several passages fiom
them. Ho said that ho had been urgently
solicited by the condemned men to take up
their cause and that was the reason of his
breaking his long .silence. Ho did not care
ono farthing for anarchy or the anarchists ,
but was u believer in frco speech. Ho
couldn't understand why fM,000,0K ( ) of people
should bo afraid of "seven little picayune
anarchists. " Ho never saw nn anarchist ,
never talked anarchy nnd yet was considered
the arch anarchist of the world. Ho was
considered u communist in Franco , a nihilist
in Uussln and a Fenian In Ireland , nnd had
been thrown Into fourteen jails for his sup
posed treason. Ho believed that every man
lias a right to his own religion nnd beliefs
and to advocate his doctrines when nnd where
ever he chooses. Ho entered upon the do-
fcnso of the seven men simply to avert
another civil war. If these men were hung-
twenty million laboiing men would rise up
to avenge them. Ho had advised them not
to buo for executive clemency or
allow their cases to go before the
supreme court , and ho wished
it distinctly understood it was not the anarch
ists who caused the arguments In their behalf -
half before the highest tribunal of the United
States to bo made , but their friends and .sym
"If they hang them , " said Mr. Train , "I
will expatiate myself forever from this
my native land. I will not live with
such a people. I hate capital punishment ; it
is the resource of the thug , the cutthroat , the
stranglcr and the barbarian. " [ Here Mr.
Train took a vote as to how many were
against and how many favored capital pun
ishment. The nays and ayes were about
equal. ] "If I do leave this country , " ho con
tinued , "and you all get your throats cut ,
don't blame me , and I tell you if I do go you
will bo trending on mighty thin leo. "
Mr. Train then invited the audience U > ask
lilin questions und the lirst ono was : "What
do you think of prohlbitlonl" Ho replied
that ho would bring Council Hlnffsovcr hero ,
have frco bridges nnd prohibit that twenty-
live cent faro between the two cities. If the
question referred to liquor ho did not
think any man had a right to interfere -
fero with another man's stomach.
Ill reply to the question If ho over drank ,
chewed or smoked Mr. Train emphatically
said that ho had never done cither In his life.
Some ono asked : "What of the coercion
bill In Ireland ! " Mr. Train replied that It
meant the downfall of Ireland. That it
would stamp out the life of that Island.
Ho then announced that ho would put on
"two white neckties to-day und preach in the
exposition hall to-night. " Mr. Train was
frequently interrupted with appluuso nnd
laughter. The many ladies present seemed
to thoroughly enjoy the entertainment.
The following letters received by Mr. Train
from A. U. Parsons and Nina Van Zandt ,
Spies' proxy wife , are published in the BEK
for the first time :

more than kind of you to como to Chicago to

the tci m rightly , or do not wish to. Uosidea
the "Haymarket" meeting which caused all
