for there are patriots, though mistaken ones,

Henry George and Dr. McGlynn are re
| ceiving support from unexpected sources.
| A day or two ago a meeting of clergymen
j and laymen of the Episcopal Church was
| held in the lecture room of Calvary Church,
1 New York, for the purpose of disclosing
questions relating to the interests of work
ingmen. Some of the speakers, and es
pecially Bishop Huntington, of Central
: New York, paid a high tribute to the un
| selfish devotion which he asserted Dr. Mc-
Glynn and Henry George were exhibiting
in behalf of laboring men. Quite a num
ber of those who took part in the proceed
ings were supjiorters of Henry George, and
believers iu iiis theory resjiecting the taxa
tion of land.
It is remarkable that prominent clergy
men and laymen of the Episcopal, or any
Oilier church should form an association to
encourage men like Henry' George and Dr.
McGlynn. There is no fault to be found
with them for trying to assist workingmen,
but it is not easy to understand how they
can believo that by encouraging Dr. Mc-
Glynn and Henry George they are helping
the poor. Henry George has no plan for
advancing the interests of the workingmen
but his scheme of land taxation, and that is
so improbable that there is no probab lity
that it will ever lie seriously considered bv
those entrusted with the power to make and
change laws In fact, Henry George him
self is unable to explain how his land taxing
scheme can be made to benefit either the
poor or the rich. Ho undertook to do so a
few days ago m n public discussion with
one of the leaders of the Progressive party,
and failed so completely that those of his
admirers who were present did not have the
courage to make excuses for him.
There is nothing in Henry George's career
that shows that he is anything more than a
shrewd demagogue. It is a question whether
his pretended sympathy for the poor is
genuine. Ho is a persistent office-seeker,
and ever since he has been in New York he
has been endeavoring to find ways by which
he might escape poverty. He pretends to
lie opening the way for others to escape it,
but it is noticeable that lie is chiefly con
cerned about himself.
Dr. McGlynn is a disappointed ex-priest,
who was rather unceremoniously lifted out
of the comfortable place which he occupied
in tlio Catholic church because of his flagrant
acts of disobedience. There appears to be
some ground for saying that his disobedi
ence was the result of unsatisfied ambition.
It may be that he is a little more sincere
than Henry George in his professions of u
desire to help workingmen, but, admitting
that he is, the prospect that he will accom
plish anything for them is not promising.
There ure labor problems, of course, and
there always have been. Men like Henry
George, I)r. McGlynn and those who met in
Calvary church, however, will not solve
them. One level-headed man like Chief
Arthur of the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers, is worth to genuine working
men a hundred such men as they are.
If those who met in Calvary church want
to do something that will help the ]ioor let
them direct their efforts to making the poor
foal comfortable in the grand churches,
where the display of wealth unfits the mind
for divine worship, and repels those who
earn their bread by the sweat of their brow.
One of the clergymen present at the Cal
vary church meeting said that he feared
that some of the clergy thought a good rich
man a little better than a good poor man.
His fears are not without foundation. If
those clergymen who are so anxious to help
laboring men will set themselves to work to
make leas distinct the lines which separate
the rich from the poor in their churches
they will accomplish more for the class
they seek to benefit than they will by com
mending Henry George and Dr. McGlynn.
Although the Legislature was in session
157 days it does not appear to have studied
very thoroughly some of the bills it passed.
The Governor and Attorney General are
finding such evidences of carelessness in its
work that it would not be surprising
if a good many of the bills that were passed
should be vetoed because of defects that
violate the constitution. Two important
bills which are of great interest in this sec
tion of the State have already been vetoed.
One of them authorized the sale of the court
house site of this county, and the other pro
vided for the protection of the oyster fish
It seems that the court house bill covered
two distinct subjects. It provided for the
sale of the court house site and gave the
United States jurisdiction over it. The
constitution requires that no bill shall deal
with more than one subject. According to
the opinion of the Attorney General the
oyster fishery bill contains no provisions for
carrying it into effect, and is unconstitu
tional because no limitation is placed upon
the penalties which it provides.
Doubtless most of tho bills are drawn by
those who are unskilled in that kind of
work. It is expected that the judiciary
committees of the two houses will put them
into proper shape, ami if they fail to make
them comply with the l%ul requirements
there are enough lawyers in the legislature
outside of these committees to point out

Tho President has a female cousin, as well
as a sister, who aspires to literary fame,
but she will have to wait awhile. Her

nominally a story, but really an attack on
certain prominent Michigan politicians so
fierce that the publisher, on
the advice of his lawyer, has
suppressed it, fearing suits for libel. The
lady seems to have a love for aggressive
politics, and with the advertisement her

however, as the public doesn’t tuko kindly

Carl Schurz’s reply in a speech the other
night to Senator Evarts’ “three cent joke,”
to the effect that a surplus of #100,0(10,000
only meant a tax of three cents a week for

effective one. He said it was not the col
lection of the surplus whicli would do the
greatest harm, but, the spending of it, which
would sap aud undermine the very founda

THE MORNING NEWS: SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1887.
A New England Pharisee.
Senator Hoar protests that he is no enemy
of the South; indeed, he claims to be that
section’s particular friend. To make this
plain ho says: “The chief part of iny public
life, as those who have lieer. in the public
service with me will testify, has hen en
gaged in framing and advocating measures
which seemed to me to bo for the interests
of that section of the country alone.”
Nobody will dispute Mr. Hoar’s state
ment os to the manner in which he has spent
bis time, and perhaps few would question
the honesty of his motives. Almost every
body in this part of the country, however,
to benefit which he says he has spent so
much time and labor, thinks he has worse
than wasted a great deal of effort on busi
ness with which he had nothing particularly
to do. Mr. Hoar would probably think it
the height of arrogance in a Georgia Sen
ator to devote a long political life to the
framing an 1 advocating of measures to im
prove the political and social well-being of
Massachusetts; and Senator Hoar would be
right. What would b true of the Georgia Sen
ator in such a case is true of Senator Hoar.
He knows a great deal, it is to lie supposed,
about his own State, and he certainly has lit
tle knowledge of the South other than what
he has gained from books amj during short
expedition* into its territory on iuvestigat mg
committees and like errands. It would,
therefore, be the part of wisdom for him to
task his intellect in devising means to bene
fit the State which sends him to Congress,
and if it is so happy and well-off that he
cannot think of any measure which would
make its people better and richer, his con
science need not hurtliini if be live a life of
idle dignity. He would be a more useful
Senator to the people who are responsible for
him should he determine on such a course,
and he would prove his professed friendship
for the South best in that way.
It will be bard for Senator Hoar to oil
mit that Southern men know better than he
does what is good for their States, but that
is really true. And they think, too, that
Senator Hoar knows better what is good
for New England. They are familiar with
the attitude of Senator Hoar toward their
section. It is not peculiar to him, but is
common to almost all statesmen of the New
England civilization. It is the pedagogic
attitude, with primer in one hand and birch
rod in the other. It takes a vast deal of
self-conceit to assume such an attitude
towurd the whole world, an 1 it is apt to ex
cite anger and contempt i.i men who can
not escape being afflicted with it.
Would it not be well for Senator Hoar to
be a little modest, and wait on the wisdom
of Southern statesmen in dealing with
Their Protests Heard.
The loud protests which Chicago and
other cities are making against the admis
sion into the country of cholera-infected
immigrants has induced the Quarantine
Commissioners of New York to ask the Sec
retary of the Treasury whether or not the
government has authority to prohibit the
landing of such immigrants at any port in
this country, and to send back to the places
from whence they came any who may in
the future be brought here. The govern
ment has such authority, and the Secretary
of the Treasury will use it if the local quar
antine authorities ask him to do so.
It is a pretty late day for the qi tarantine
authorities of New York to think about
shutting out immigrants from cholera in
fected ports. Those who arrived there a
few days ago on the Independente are now
located in a half dozen cities. Because
there had been no deaths on the voyage the
vessel was not detained at quarantine more
than a day or two, although many of the
immigrants were from tho cholera-stricken
city of Palermo. The vessel wus fumigated,
but there is no evidence that the personal
baggage of the immigrants was disinfected.
When the warm weather comes next snni
iner the health authorities of the cities
where these immigrants are living will be
on the lookout for cholera. In 1873 cholera
was introduced into this country by immi
grants who arrived on a vessel on which
there were no deaths during the voyage.
If New York doesn’t ask that her port be
closed to immigrants from cholera-infected
places other cities ought to do so for their
own protection. There is no need why they
should run tho risk of having tho seeds of
pestilence distributed among their people
simply because the obstinate authorities at
New York want to have their way in the
It seems that the Board of Health of New
York city has asked the newspapors not to
publish anythiug relating to cholera in that
city if it should break out there. Tho reason
they give is that the business of the city
would be injured. To save a little business
the port is kept open to vessels from cholera
infected ports, and if the [testilence is intro
duced into the city the fact is to be kept
secret and other cities not given a chance to
protect themselves against it. New York
will find that she cannot carry out such a
selfish policy successfully. Her Board of
Health is making exteusive preparations to
check any outbreak of cholera that may

with some rare Indian weapons. They had
been buried in a sitting position. One grave re
vealed an unusually large collection, and was
probably that of a chieftain. The weapons
showed no signs of use.
Reports from London show that the Poor
Guardians have 91,000 paupers on the parish
rolls compared with 71,000 for the correspond
ing week of last year. The reported statement
of the Becretany of the Organized Charity As
sociation to the effect that there are 1,000,000
persons in the metropolis “whose condition is
one of acute suffering and distress," must
surely lie an exaggeration. That would he a
fifth of the population. There are much more
trustworthy statistics accessible. The Poor
Guardians' returns, however, are sufficient to
prove that the distress is unusual. An increase
of 20,000 in the pauper list represents distress
among a much larger number of people, many
of whom wonld refuse, under any circumstan
ces, to go to the workhouse.
The Dog Was the Thief.
From the Pittsburg Dispatch.
For a week or so past Mrs. I. K. Hammer, of
North Hiland avenue, East End, has missed
small articles from about the house. Overcoats
and wraps have disappeared from the rack in
the hall, table-covers have disappeared, and va
rious other articles have had a habit of not be
ing in their place when wanted A domestic
was suspected and discharged, but still the rob
beries did not cease. On Friday Mrs. Hammer
appealed to the policeman on the beat, and
asked that he keep a special watch on the house.
On Saturday morning she was sitting behind a
screen in the dining room when a large New
foundland dog, which had been the pet of the
family for years,marched demurely in. picked up
a hat from the table, and walked out again. Mrs.
Hammer followed him. He carried the hat out
the front door and around the rear of the house,
where he crawled under the porch. A few minutes
later he came out without the hat. An investi
gation under the porch brought to light every
article that had been missed during the week
The dog had carried them as far under the
porch as he could go, and had made for himself
a nice soft bed.
What is Flirtation ?
From the Globe-Democrat.
What is flirtation? Really,
How can I tell you that?
But when she smiles I see its wiles
And when he lifts his hat.
’Tis walkig in the moonlight,
’Tis buttoning on a glove,
’Tis lips that speak of plays next week
While eyes are talking love.
’Tis meeting in the ball-room,
’Tis whirling in the dance,
’Tis something hid behind the 'V
More than a simple glance
’Tis lingering in the hallway,
’Tis sitting on the stair,
’Tis bearded Upson fingertips
If mamma isn’t there.
’Tis tucking in the carriage,
’Tis asking for a call,
’Tis long good-nights in fender lights,
And that is—no, not all!
’Tis parting when it’s over,
And one goes home to sleep.
Best joys must end, tra la, my friend—
But one goes home to weep.
He Will Never Do it A grain.

Capt. 8. L. Laird, of the schooner John C.
White, was yesterday held in SI,OOO bail for the
action of the United States Court, on the
charge of ill-treating seamen on board the
schooner. Edward Phoebus, the mate, was com
mitted to jail on the same charge. The evi
dence showed that the mate struck one of the
men, named Fogarty, with an oyster culling
hammer, splitting his head part ly open, and
kicked and otherwise abused the colored cook,
an old man named Cox, in a shocking manner.
Tabbs, another colored man, was beaten with a
rope's end. The old man Cox, a Maryland
negro of the old school, gave his testimony in a
style which made all laugh. In the first place,
he complained of being called up at 1 o’clock at
night to cook. “Den,'’ said he, "I was astannin’

continued Cox, "I cotcbed anoder rope, when

You nover were on deep water before?” said
“No.” said Cox. “De onliest water I eber

are very plain anti simple when they go on foot
in search of amusement out in the park or ring.
