No question I of more vial importance
to every man and woman than that of the
perpetuIty of our republcan Inatlulon anl
form ot govcrnment. Recognizing this fact ,
the tolowlng questIons were recently sub-

requIres no answer.
Next you ask : "What Is its greatest
peri ? " I answer that Its greatest peril lies
1n I departure from those Christian princi-
pies upon which our very laws and Insttl-
tlons are based. As long a those Christian
Ilrlnclples are maintained our institutions
- wil , under God , lurlvo and flourish . Our
lavs , which are only expressions of eternal
law , \\1 command our reslledt * anti therefore
our loyal obedience. On the other hand ,
every departure from those Christian prin-
ciples upon which our social fabric rests-
especially In respect ot the marriage tie and
the freedom ot popular suffrage-tends to the
loosening of the foundation stones of our re-
One of the most admirable features of our
present system of government Is the happy
balance of federal power wih state autonomy :
and as long as this golden mean Is observel
we shall possess strength and liberty and
Indestructibility as a great nation.
To your fourth Query I reply that In my
jUdgment we need have no fear at foreign
capItalists ant foreign syndicates Those who
invest In our pubic lands ant our business
enterprlscs will naturally be brought Into
closer acquaintance with our present repuba

- My Dear Sir : Upon my return to the
city after a few days' absence I find your
Jeter of questions wIth regard to the ler-
potulty of -ur Instutons awaiting me , and
F' hasten to reply.
V To your first question : "Wilt our present
republican form ot '
republcan government last 100 years
longer ? " I answer , yes : the constitution
may bo amended , changes In consttuton
occur : but our republcan government vlll
endure for all .

mentIs not likely to be re-establshet on this

have rolled around all the leading govern- shal
meats ot Europe will be republican. gver-
' My answer to your first question renders
1 unnecessary to give one to your second ,
which Is : "If It will not last , why not ? "
Your thIrd question : "What Is our repub-
lie's greatest peril ? " I will not undertake
to answer categorically. The maintenance
et a government b the people Is possible
only when the masses are Independent , In-
tellnl ant virtuous The danger to our
? epublicnn form of
republcan government arises tram
the ignorant , the vicious and venal classes ,
controlled by designing and corrupt men.
To guard against thIs danger we should
V educate the rIsing generaton , prevent time
coming to thIs country ot the criminal classes
of other nations , maintain the standard 01
AmerIcan wages and thus secure the Independence -
Jentence ot the American \orklngen.
. frown down by public opinion and 11nish
by law all corrupt practices which debase
the vqter and chealfn surrrage .

a majority , other thIng being equal , would

republican term of government. Of course ,
I would bD better for the country If its
landowners were all citizens and If none of
its Industries were owned by foreIgners or
controlled by foreign capital , so that the
profits upon the capital would remain In this
country : but the production or what wo can-

I will endeavor to answer briefly the Questions -

The above replies answer your tnt and
second questions .
Third ( , The greatest peril menacIng our
Kovornlent Is the poverty and indifference ot
our l'30p1e. The poor are so oppressed that I
they are forced to sell themselves for what
they pan , get and are thus at the mercy ot r

States senate , who was always ono of the
fir st and foremost In debate , and who toned .

vlol' , a will bo seen by hIs appended letter :
vidu My near SIr : Your ! of the 3d Insl. was
duly received , but 1 have not been able to
reply until now.
In reply to your first question let me say
that I most certaInly think that our present
re publican form of government will lat 10
ye ars Ion Ier. This answers both your first
an ti second questions.
In respect to your third query , I remark
that I think the greatest perils to our reo
puhlo are Ir.Rumelent education , excess of
the foreign clement and political corruption.
\s to your fourth , I think there Is no danger
ot any considerable portion of the lands of
the United Slates falling Into foreign control ,
nor that any consllerable portion of its busi-
nes enterprises will ever be owned or con-
troled by [ orlgner ! Yours trimly ,
lion. Wiiam M. Evarts , the distinguished
New York Jurist ant ex.Unled States senator
rro _ New " York . takes much the same view
ns eumuntis :
My Dear SIr : I have bad the pleasure to
receive your letter of the 6lh Inst. , anll In
reply woult say that In my Judgment the
conRtuton of [ the United States Is better
and stronger than It was 100 yells ngo. The
great nation that has grown up under Its
llrlecton Is more capable of sustaIning tree
Insttutons than at any earlier period for
every genorotiomi . no doubt , will find evils to
b e guardel agaInst and good ! principles to
necd development nIl defense. A more
Intmate unity of feeling throughout the na-
ton , ali n subordination ot local and par-
tcular interests to the general good. and a
watch Cui attention to preserve our industrial
and social hulepellence of Europe must for
years to come bo the great duty ot this
it eople.
I cau foresee no danger of a serious or I ,
p rmanent desertion of this duty on the part
of our fellow cltzen . So long as there Is I
n o such desertion we can readily overcome I
any' peris that may menace us , whether front '
fo reign syndicates , individual aliens or other
sou rces.
I I am correct in my vews ! on the matter 1
see no reason why any patriotic AmerIcan
citzen need feel any apprehension for the por-
Iltuly l of his beloved nation. Therefore ,
s peaking for myself I cannot possibly feel
any great degree of concern as to the stability
of the noble institutions which this great ,
prosperous and powerful country Is now In
the enjoyment " of. _ In I cJretul and thoughtful
pErusal l or what I have here writen 1 think
that t any reflecting person may find a full ant
c comlele answer to nil four of thes3 questons
which you have propeunded to me , anti whIch
I think are of very great IrpJrtace to every
true-hearted , thoughtful American citizen.

A msnoP's VIEWS.

copal bishop ot the diocese of New York

we are most In danger from an abence at re-
lgIon l and I departure from Christian prlncl-

letter l Is appended :
My Dear Sir : The four questions you ask
me are certainly of the most vital Interest
and importance to all the people of these
United States , and like nil such qustcns they
are not easy to ans\er. ncr are rep las to them
to be hasty formulated. In reply to your
first question . " " ' 1 our present republican
term of government last 100 years longer ? "
I would say that I have no accurate data
which would warrant me In expressIng an
opinion as to how long the present govern.
meat of the United States will endure.
Yeur second question , "If not , why not ? " I
am equally unable to answer satslctorll' .
In reply to your third question , "What Is V
Its i greatest peril ? " I would say that In my
, judgmet the indifference at the people to
righteousness In , their rulers , and to integrity
In I the administraton of the government , Is I
the greatest peril with whIch ! wo arc threat.

In to fourth question I would
reply your queston woult say
that there Is not the smallest probability that
aliens and foreIgn syntlctes will ever obtaIn I
control of thIs country by buying up its land I
nnd buslnes's enterprises tnd eventuJly charge
Its form ot government. The drift of the t
world Is not toward mnarchal ! government .
but away from It , and our danger Is not In I
the direction of monarchy , but rather of anarchy -
archy : 10t from foreign syndicates , but [ rom m
domestic syndicates , and then from the treat I
from that tyranny which great moneyed cain -
blnatons seek to Impose. I am. my tear sir ,
sIncerely yours , H. C. POTTER.

With regard to what Is the greatest peri I !
ot our government , I think It Is the accunlu -

Lincoln also has a large representation In
Chicago. AmQng these Leon Douglas deserves
more than a passing ' mentlon . for , although
scarcely moro than a , boy , he has made inventions _
ventons In the line of 'Edison's work at great
Importance. Starting In the Lincoln teie-
phone exchange as a mere lad , he developed
such aptitude that ho was soon matc man-
ager of the Grand Island exchange. While
there he learned of the phonograph and Whie
structe an Instrument of his own making a
work-bench of his mothers dining room table
by sawIng holcs In the top. lie continued
his tul investigations ant mate the first success-
phonograllh slot machine. There were
many chlmants for that invention. H. A.
Denson , " 11e Omaha real estate man , became
Interested In young Dcuglas and backed his
claim , employing John M. Thurston to rCpre-
sent imimim T'le contc'st Inaly narrowed down
to Douglas and a California Inventor , but It
was clearly shown that the Nebraska boy hat
perfected his Inventon I month SOJner than
the Calornian , and he was gIven the patent
Another invention of the Nebraska boy
was a device for duplicating phonograhplc
records , something which baffled oven Ed-
isen In time early hIstory of time buslneu It
was impossible to reproduce a song on a
phonograllh record wIthout having the singer
repeat In Into the Instrument , which made
time records rather expensive. Edison found
that In atemptng to have one machIne re-
peat It to another the resulting copy was too
indistinct to be at yalue. Douglas Invented
a diaphragm that Inionsified ! the sounds ot the
phonograph , ant ho made It possible , with
two Instrument to reproduce a record many
times at a trifling cost. For some Vine !
lembers of his family did a thrIving ! bus-
laces In reproducing records. Young Douglas
was persuaded to go t Wlhlngton In the
employ of the graphophone people , and they
secured control oD the reproducIng process ,
Just ho\ has not been mate public. Whie
