Thr State nnil the Poor.
The subject ot public relief , the fruit
ful topic e > f pauperism and how it shall
bo dealt with , and the obligations of the
btate to care for Us poor , are not new
thomos. of discussion. They have for
centuries received the thoughtful con-
bideratioti of the wisest men , nnd it
beoms col-tain thut they must continue
to command attention for ccn'turies to
come. Great progress has certainly
been made , chiojly within the past cen
tury , toward correct and olliciont meth
ods ol publie- relief and in the direction
of reducing pauperism. Recent statib-
tics show that the number of paupers in
England relatively to population it
very much smaller than fiftj
yearn ago , while as to the
methods of publio relief then ami
now the contrast is as great as between
tlio conditions of semi-barbarism and
those of a full-rounded civilization. A
rfrogrobff nearly aw great ha boon made
in bolno of the other European uatipns
though undoubtedly in this purticulm
England stands first among the nations
In the United States pauperism has
had a , much more vigorous growth thai
would becm po iblo with the great op
portunities which the country otfors te
industry and thrift , but the fact is no' '
inexplicable. A great deal of the pan
poribin hero is due to the in judiciou :
liberality , public and private , wiiicl
oilers a premium to indolence an (
thriftlobsiiess. Doubtless , ulhowo are indebted
dobted te > Europe for a great doa

forcomentof the laws "would keep out
As to methods of public relief , they anne
no where receiving uioro careful nt
tention than in this country , and wi
are undoubtedly making progress. Bu
there is still a very great deal to be
learned before a reasonably pot-fee
policy shall have been reached respect
ing the general question of caring fo :
the i > oor and of providing methods fo
prevention and reduction of pauperism
In the last number of the 1'oliticn
Science Qumterly the subject of publii
poor relief is dibciibsed with considora
bio elaboration by Prof. Henry W
Farnam. Wo cannot attempt to evoi
outline tlio arguments of the profos.xo
regaiding certain theories , some o
them centuries old , as t
the obligations of the btati
to establish and maintain i
bybtom of poor relief , and wo must pas
over a great deal of interesting matte
to roach its application to the following
practical questions. What should to
thobcopo of the state's action rogardni )
the poor ? Is it fe > r its interest to reeog
niy.o a legal right to relief on the par
of the person aided1 ; "What should b
its relation to private charity ? As t
the ilrst question Professor Farnam eli
eorvcB that the state nhould , a-i far possible
siblo , endeavor to strike at the root c
pauperism rather than merely prun
its branches. The duty of the govern
ment ib not fulfilled b\- merely distriu
uting roliof. "If the chief reason fo
governmental interference lies i
the failure of the struggle for oxisi
once to bring ikbout the btirvivt
of the fittest in the moral an
economical sense , then all mcni
ure which do not aim ultimately at thi
result are but palliatives , not rente
dies.Vhilo , therefore , the state nhoul
be exceedingly cautious in npplyin
methods of relief , lebt the very meat
it uso3 shall aggravate the evil , :
should not hesititto to go beyond tli
simple giving of relief , if it can the :
ouglily sitisfy itself by experiment thr
Biu-h action will tend to diminish th
amount of relief needed in the future.
Heparding the second question Pr <
fessor Farnam takes the ground that
is not in accordance with the welfare <
the state to recognize a legal right c
the part of the floor to roliof. If , as Ii
thinks should bo thu case , "the Urn
aim of the poor laws is to make a
classes of the population solf-supportin ;
the recognition of a right to bo sui
ported , regardless of one's own action
or of the right to have work , rogardle
of one's own olTort-s to seek it , must ui
dcrmino that independence which
our aim and destroy onool the ttrongo
incentives to self-support. " Numeroi
historical examples are cited to she
that the recognition of a legal right
relief conflicts'with thu very end fi
which poor relict exists. Jlogardlii
the relation of publie relief to priva
charity , P-rofcs-iOi1 Furnam
that the extent to which the govern
ment carca for tiie. poorbhoukl udjtift
it oltto .tho junouilt of work t'
done by privates effort. 'It cannot bo
doCernUjitid by a.liareV . and fast ruk' .
The government HJioiild roitrlct or o.v-i'
panel it ? action according' s- ] > v- )
t'ato charity is acllvo or indo
lejnt. Private agenolcs ran do
what publid-ones- unable to do , foi'
they can c.xbrulse charily. An unforced
poor relief can newr partake } of the na
ture of charity or bring torth the fruits
of benovylonco. "A more machine ,
such as the department of public chnri-
'ties Is Very apt to become , can never etf-
orcibo a personal nnd moral influence.
The ) government should therefore avoid
all measures that will tend to weaken
the beneficial elVects of real I'liarlty. It
should supplement , not supplant it. "
The state , honcver , should not hesitate
to interfere where prlvuto charity isex-
orcibod with .so little intelligence as to
bean oncouragomontto pauperism and'
as to run tier the pi-oblom of dealing with
the indigent more dilllcult.
Finally , Professor Fm-nsim cays wo
shall never make any progress in deal
ing with this subject . .until'w realize
that pauperism is a social disnnso , not
an economic state. "Pauperism does
not menu simply the absence of fund- . ;
it moaii-i the mental nnd habit
which oeic.'isions this luck of funds ; and
while it would sooin as Utopian to look
forward to the specdV abolition of pov
erty as it would to the eljbcovory of the
elixir of life , it doet iiQt boom unroason-
ablu to Iiopq that paiipcribtn as an cpi-
demit ? may bo as1 thoroughly checked as
have been the ravages of thd small pox
or the black death. "
landlord Scnlly.
The ofTect of the Illinois alien land
bill passed l bt year has made itself felt
in forcing the notoriom L-indlord SculljF
to dispose of his forty thousand acres in
that atato. For years the tenant farmers
n the 'estates" of thlb foreigner were
lUbjoct to the name indignities and
ack-rcntlng ystom which this man in-
reduced more than twenty years ago in
Tipperary , Ireland. Tlio unhappy
enant who once found himself on Lanel-
ord Scully's land in Illinois became an
object of indignity and oxtortion. The
lagrant abuse of his authority as land-
ord in violence with all principle- > f
quity , arouod a strong jiopnlar feeling
against this man. The ueoplo of Illinois
would not staml it. As a result a law
ivas passed compollintr alien lnndovvnei-3
o dispose of thoi" realty within &ix
years under ponaltv ot forfeiture unle ?
n the meantime they become citi/ons
of the Uniteel States.
Events have proven that Landlord

rather than to become naturalized.

A NUMHiiK Of experiment" are about to
bo tried at the Chicago Union stock
yards to ascertain whether Tuxiui fov r
5s contagious to native cattle. The re
sult of the investigation will bo watched
with great interest bv the cattle men ol
the country. For some years past cattle
have boon afllictod with this pcculint
disease , said to bo transmitted from
Texas cattle to native stock. There has
never been cone'.lusivo proof to thi-
effect , and it is purposed to settle !
this question once for all. A series ol
exposures of native northern cattle witli
TcxaiiB is to bo made with a view ol
determining whether or not southern
cattle can convey fever to northern
cattle , and whether , if any northern
cattle contract the Texan fever , the }
can reconvoy it to ether native stock ,
It is probable that in the course of the
investigation , which is to extend ovci
8omo months , the commission appointee'
will extend tlio inquiry by endeavoring
to llnd a medicinal remedy to cheek the
disease if found in Texan or domestic
cattlo. For that reason the report o
the commission to bo presented at the
next mooting of the National Consoli
dated Cattle Growers in November wil
bo very important to the cattle industry
of the country.
