Let Them Heed the Warning.
If the Anarchists in this country are wise
they will heed the warning they received at
Chicago, yesterday. As long as they keep
within the bounds of the law they are
safe, but when they step beyond it
and not only advocate but commit
murder, they will have no more leniency
shown them than if they were to stealthily
approach a personal enemy and drive a
knife or fire a bullet into liis heart.
The lives of the officers of the law are as
sacred as those of private citizens and any
attack upon them should be as swiftly and
severely punished as an attack upon those
who wear no badges of author
ity. The 60,000 citizens of Chicago
who signed a petition to the Governor,
asking a pardon for the murderers of
theseven policemen at tlie Haymarket meet
ing eighteen months ago, forgot,apparently,
that if it were not for the police their city
would be in the hands of the mob. and
their business and their homes destroyed.
Anarchists cannot bo reached by acts of
mercy or appeals to reason. If the four
teen who died yesterday on the scaffold,
and the tw o who were sent to the peniten
tiary for life, bad been pardoned they
would have at once begun again to advo
cate anarchy. They would have renewed
their appeals to workingmen to resist the
law. They would have conspired again to
make war upon the police with death deal
Mercy shown Anarchists would be inter
preted by them to mean that the authorities
were afraid of them, and they would feel
secure in indulging in greater ex
cesses and committing other an-1
more atrocious deeds of violence. To
them leniency means fear and liberty means
license. There is only one way to deal with
them, and that is to show them no quarter.
When they violate the law they must be
made to suffer the penalty for such viola
tion, and be made to understand that there
is power enough in this eountry, though it
is lodged with the people, to inflict whatever
penalties the law provides.
The Anarchists who seek this country be
cause their own has become rather uncom
fortable for them. have the idea that they
can do as they please as scon us they land
upon our shores. This idea is strengthened
by hearing in public places the most violent
expressions against the law and those who
administer it. and seeing in the
public prints the highest officials
criticised in harsh and bitter terms. They
are given every opportunity to learn, how
ever, that while this is a country of free
speech there is the most profound respect
for the law. The people speak their minds,
but they want the law respected and obeyed
because it is their safety.
The Anarchists have no respect for law,
and there is no way to prevent them from
violating it, except by fotce. Most and his
companions in New York would do in that
city what the Anarchists did in Chicago, if
they were not afraid they would suffer the
fate that overtook Spies, Parsons and the
others of the Haymarket group.
The Anarchists pretend that the hanging
of some of their leaders at Chicago will not
check anarchy. If that will not, what will'
They say the Chicago hanging will swell
the ranks of the Anarchists and incite them
to more violent deeds. Well, they will
have to be met with greater
force, and if they insist upon
committing other murders, other Anarch
ist necks will have to be stretched. If
mercy would have weakened anarchy there
would have been some reason in granting
it, even though justice would have been
ignored, but it would not. The
course that was pursued was
the right one, and the future will show that
it was. The time had come when it was
necessary to take a stand against the vio
lence and crimes c f Anarchy. The admin
istrators of the law were ready to take that
stand and public sentiment supported
The condemned Anarchists declared, and
their counsel and friends declared in their
behalf, that they had nothing to do with
throwing the bomb at the Haymarket meet
ing, and that they never intended to use
force in carrying out tlieir principles.
These things were said when they
saw themselves in danger of being
condemned to the gallows. The truth
is, that they were engaged in a great con
spiracy to overthrow the law and to intro
duce chaos where peace and order reigned.
It was in their programme that human
lives should be sacrificed, though they in
tended to take good care of their own lives.
They have paid the penalty of their crimes
and the verdict of the country is that they
deserved their fate.
The Anarchists in Chicago.
The number of Anarchists and Socialists
in Chicago is not very large, although the
impression outside of that city has all along
been that their number is many thousands.
What they lack in numbers, however, they
make up in bluster and noise.
In the Chicago election last Tuesday their
candidate for J udge of the Superior Court
was Capt. Black, who was the leading coun
sel of the Anarchists who were hanged
yesterday. He is popular with the
Chicago Anarchists and Socialists, and
it is probable that they made an extra
ordinary effort to give him a big vote.
Capt. Black is a brother of Gen.
Black, the Commissioner of Pensions,
and having many friends in
Chicago it is probable that he got hundreds
of votes which were not cast either by
Anarchists or Socialists, or by those who
sympathize with them. There are also in
Chicago labor organizations which have no
connection with the Anarchists, but which
have expressed some sympathy with those
who were condemned for the Haymarket
massacre. No doubt they contributed a
good many votes to Capt. Black, and yet he
received only 6.358 votes altogether. His
opponent. Judge Gary, who presided at the
trial of the Anarchists, received nearly the
whole vote of the city.
Could there be any better evidence than
this that the number of Anarchists iu Chi
cago is comparatively small, and that they
have very few sympathizers! It is tme that
nearly 60,000 people in Chicago signed the
petitions to the Governor asking him to par
don the condemned men, but, as in nearly all
petitions, the signers doubtless did not have
a very clear idea of what they were sign
ing. It i- pretty safe to say, taking the
vote for Capt. Blac k as a basis for an opin
ion, that there are not 3,000 tneu in Chicago
who do not believe that the Haymarket
assassins were guilty of the crime of which
they w'ere convicted. There is no imme
diate danger, therefore, that the Anarchists
will get the upper hand in Chicago, or any
other American city.
A cloud of scandal is said to bo hangiug
over Mr. Parnell, the Irish leader. It is,
perhaps, a Tory scheme to destroy his in
THE MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1887.
Atlanta’s Prohibition Contest.
The prohibition contest in Atlanta is
daily increasing in iuterest, and there is a
prospect that the feeling that will be
developed before the contest is over will
become more bitter than the feeling was
during a similar contest two years ago.
If the Prohibitionists win in the present
contest the probabilities an- that Atlanta
will remain a prohibition town. The anti-
Prohibftionists know this, and they are,
therefore, making an extraordma'y effort
to reverse the verdict of two years ago.
The testimony of the lletter class of the
people, as a rule, is that Atlanta has never
been more prosperous than during the two
years under prohibition rule. The working
classes have been better satisfied and have
had more comforts in their homes, there
has been less drunkenness than was ever be
fore known in the city's history, and all
kinds of retail business has been more pros
One improvement has been so noticeable
that it ought to arrest the attention of all
having a voice in the approaching election
who have sons. It is the almost total
disappearance of the habit of drinking
among young men of the city. A few of
them may still continue (lie habit, but if
they do it is because they haven’t the will
power to discontinue it, and obtain liquor
surreptitiously to satisfy their appetite for it.
The great mass of the young men, however,
who drank, did it simply because it was
thrown in their way in the bar and billiard
rooms. They drank occasionally, not be
cause they wanted to, but because it was
the custom to do so. Since prohibition went
into effect they have been almost total ab
stainers, and ought to be found earnestly
working on the side of prohibition.
Atlanta will make a groat mistake if she
abandons prohibition. The good effects of
it are just beginning to be, realized. There
is sufficient moral backbone in the town to
see to it that the law in enforced, which is
not the case in some other towns of the
State where the Prohibitionists would like
to give prohibition a trial.
The Beef Supply.
The failure recently of several of the
great cattle companies of the Western
plains, caused by the almost complete anni
hilation of their herds by the unusually
severe weather of last wintor, would seem
to indicate that the cattle raising business in
that region, on the immense scale attempted
by these companies, involves too much risk
to induce the further investment of capital.
The cattle ranch business in that cold
climate will probably decline, giving place
to the raising of cattle in comparatively
small herds, which may receive attention
during the winter months from their owner.
This condition of the business in the re
gion that has been looked upon as the great
beef reservoir of tlie country, if not of the
world, naturally directs attention to other
sections where cattle can be profitably
raised, and which are not subject to the ex
treme climatic conditions which have
proved so disastrous.
There are many reasons to believe that
the natural seat of this industry is in the
Southern States. Here there is no loss from
winter’s cold, lands are cheap, native grasses
are abundant, running streams numer
ous, and every year the means of speedy
and cheap transportation to market multi
ply. In many parts of the South lands
suitable for cattle raising can be
bought in large tracts at almost
nominal prices, and that they should be de
voted to such a purpose rather than lie idle
is much to be desired, but it is as an adjunct
to other agricultural business that most
must be expected from the industry. Un
der such conditions the indirect as well as
the direct returns may be large.
Notwithstanding that all the conditions
are favorable for cattle raising, it is true
that the South does not now supply its own
need i. Because of the want of proper at
tention to breeding and the care of animals,
the demand for the best quality of meats
cannot be supplied, and to a certain extent
the beef markets of the larger cities are in
the North. The breeds of cattle, however,
are being steadily improved, and with in
creased attention it is not probable that it
will long be neceessary to depend on dis
tant sources of supply.
There is a great future for this industry
in the South, and when a proper degree of
attention is devoted to it, it will aid greatly
in bringing atont the state of general pros
perity of agricultural interacts so long
looked for but so tardy itj making its ap
The feeling in Canada in favor of commer
cial union with the United .States is evi
dently growing very fast. A conference of
ministers of the different provinces which
met at Quel>ec this week to protest against
the encroachments of the Federal govern
ment upon provincial rights, took occasion
to pass resolutions iu favor of commercial
union, expressing the opinion that such union
would strengthen the bond between Canada
and Great Britain. Of thirty farmers’ in
stitutes, twenty-eight have also declared in
favor of union, and more than one commer
cial body has done so. These things show
the conviction that the interests of Canada
arc identical with those of the United State ,
but, it is difficult to see how the proposed
scheme can be carried into effect while

Thirty years ago the property of the
Catholic Church in Mexico, estimated as a
third of the national wealth, was confis
cated by President Juarez. The extent of
the reaction against clerical influence,
which has been growing of late years, is
shown by anew law proposed by President
Diaz to Congress. It provides that all
property held by the church,
or which shall hereafter be
acquired, shall be “nationalized,"
and that the government shall be the judge
of the number of churches necessary. Presi
dent Diaz’s influence in Mexico is supreme,
anti the law will doubtless be passed. It
looks tyrannical to American eyes, but is
perhaps a logical result of the interference
of the church iu politics—an interference

“Misinterpreted messages sometimes play

said a down-town Central the other night. And
then he told a story:
James G. is an up-town livery stable man, and
his best friend is Dr. William O'B. The Doctor
is somewhat of a dog fancier, and takes great
interest in his pack of bird dogs. One of his
canine pets is called Fanny, out of compliment
to James G.’s wife, and the Doctor had promised
James the pick of her babies when she gave
birth to a litter. It happened recently that at
James’ house active preparations were being
made for the reception of an heir. A few days
ago James was called to the telephone in bis
office. He thought the crisis in liis domestic
affairs had arrived. This is what he heard as he
adjusted the receiver to his ear:
"Uellol Is that you James?”
“Yes. Who are you?”
“Dr. O'B. Are you busy?”
“Not particularly so. Can I do anything for
“Yes. Come to the house as soon as possible.
Triplets just born to Fanny—one white and two

Kail way Projects in Russia.
St. Petersburg Dispatch to London Daily News.
While the Russian government makes the
greatest efforts in Paris to negotiate a loan,
which would be partially employed in the con
struction of the Siberian Pacific railway, an
other project has been formed, for which, it is
hoped, foreign capital will be unnecessary. Ac
cording to this plan, which really seems to pre
sent serious advantages over the previous Si
berian railway scheme, the Russian Pacific rail
way would commence at Slataoust, the very
centre of the Oural iron works. The entire
length would amount to 6,000 versts."The cost is
calculated at 380,000,000 rubles, viz., 300,000,000
for the railway construction proper, 30.000,0(10
for five large bridges. 20.000,000 for ten
smaller ones, and 30,000,000 for contin
gencies. According to the scheme, which has
been elaborated in all its details, the railway
could be completed within five, or at the utmost
within eight years if the construction were com
menced simultaneously in five sections, viz., the
first between Slataoust and Omsk, the second
between Omsk and Krasnojarsk. the third be
tween Krasnojarsk and the Baikal Sea, the
fourth between the Baikal Sea and the Seeja
river, the fifth between the Seeja river Vladivos
tok, on the Pacific, each section being 1,200
versts in length. It is said that this project is
supported by the most influential persons, amt
it is supposed by many that the necessary capi
tal cou'd easily lie found in Russia at 5 per cent.,
the realization of the project demanding only
50.000,000 rubles yearly during eignt years, or
30,000,000 yearly during five years

There is a great activity in Catholic circles on

. The mass, however, is not to he celebrated in
St. Peter’s, and the regrets, therefore, are uni

Peter's is being transformed for the purpose, at
a great expense. It is the Hall of Benediction,
for the Pope used to bless the people from its
central balcony. This hall served as a church

all the Bishops of the Catholic church will come

the Pop- , in his encyclical letter, will protest
against the law for the abolition of the tithes.
The present tribulations of the church will also

A Painful Chapter In the Peerage.
Philadelphia Telegraph's London Corres
The all-ruling power whom some men call
providence and others fate is responsible for
some curious and significant dealings with those
whom the unthinking world puts down as for
tune's most favored pets Here, for instance,
is His Grace Henry Fitzalnn Howard K. G., fif
teenth Duke of Norfolk and hereditary Earl
Marshal of England, almost fresh from the
grave of an idolized wife, shedding bitter but
unavailing tears over the heir to his title, now
just recovered from an attack of illness. With
an annual income exceeding 5i.300,000, splen
did palaces in which to reside, and a title which
dates back to the time of Richard 111., one
would think that the duke ought to be a happy
man. But, u.s a matter of fact, there is not a
simple cottager or latxirer on his vast estate
at Arundel whom he does not envy one at
least of his possessions. The cottager can find
happiness in his lusty, healthy lads, growing up
to help him in his old age; but the duke, with
all his wealth and all his advantages, is forbid
den such joys. All that remains to him is the
poor creature known as the Karl of Arundel
and Surrey. Born eight years ago, this heir
to potential wealth ami position is blind, is deaf,
is dmuh, is deformed and weak in intellect.
Lite to him must ho h burden, a riddle which he
cannot solve; and not all the wealth of England
can alter the circumstance. People say that
grief at this wreck of all her hopes hastened the
death of the duchess, and it is certainly ageing
the duke. People who envy him hisYeut-ioU
should look also at this skeleton in liis cupboard,
and admit that there are some things more
precious than wealth. If tba voting earl reaches
the ageof manhood, it is pitiable to think that
he will he unable to wield the power placed in
his hands, and must, in all probability, remain

as many of the cleanly stripped larch logs ne r

with it, and further south, cow s milk or butter.
