Mr. llonry Oeorgp, ha lietm ad vann

and lu tlio puhlio prcw, and in the Unit
ed Hlitto It I becoming fin Important
motor, a wan uliown by tlio coufurenoe
nt New York upon tho occiudon of Mr,
Henry Ooorge'i return from a trip
a rou ml the world. It will probably be
a long time If, Indeed, It ever occurs
before the Ooorgo doctrine Is applied In
It entirety In thi country. Hut the
IgiiB tiro multiplying that it partial
application I nut fur dltnnt. Tho din
cuHHlnn begun a dozen years ago by Mr.
George bn had the etrect of Inviting
tho public attention nil over tho world
very nharply to tho problem of taxa
tion. Intelligent men lu thi country
and lu Europe and in Australia have
been tmpreawd, a never before, with
the fact that the systems of taxation
which now prevail are unjust, compli
cated, partial, and oppressive, For one
thing, those who read and observe and
think are becoming more strongly con
vinced that the taxation of personal
property everywhere, and under a!!
circuitiHtuiiues, Is a fraud. It Is a fraud
because It never Is, and, In the nature
of things, It never can be, equally en
forced, It is a fraud because It oilers a
premium on dishonesty, and puts hon
esty at n dlHiulvantago. It Is a fraud bi
oiiuse It (llKcrlmlnates against the poor
ami those of moderate means, and in
favor of tho wealthy. The tax on per
sonal property ought to be wholly re
pealed. Puhlio Benttmuut is not yet
rlpo for Its repeal, but, at the present
raw or progre, it will t era many
yean, Th beat thought of th Urn la
tending alto very Hrongly against taxr
on ootwumptlon, popularly known a
Indirect texe, and agalnat taxe on
Improvement on real Mtata. Then I
coining to he a clearer pprehenlon of
tn fact that all tuob Use are taxe on
production, which Interfere terloutly
with the prorxMe of trade and indus
try and ounttltute vary ertou burden
Ukii the community. In many large
eeutemofpopluation there ha been a
revolt against th absurd policy which
impose a fine or penalty, In th form
of a tax, upon the man who Improve
a town or city and give employment
to labor by arect n a butlnes block, or
mill, or residence, whll It offer In
duoement for the withholding of land
from the market by laying only noml
nal taxe upon It ao long a It la left va
cant and unproductive, although it la
appreciating In value from the growth
of the oouiinunlty, by the Improve
ment mad by more enterprising peo
ple than it owner. In Chicago, New
York, Washington, and many other
cities, th demand for a large Increase
of taxe upon th land held for purely
peculativa purpose ha proved too
ttrong to be resisted by tb assessor,
and It wllf oon result that uch land
will be forced luto lit market because
their owner will find that they cannot
a fiord to hold them and pay taxe on
tliem. Here w hava (ubstantlal and
beneficial result from Mr, Henry
George' propaganda. There can be
no doubt that the hightax doctrine I
growing In favor In all English-speaking
countries, and w believe there are
many now living who will ate II general
adoption. Whether tbla will alto In
volve the appropriation by tbe ute f
tho entire rental value of the land, at
nrtilsaind In "1'nurmaa and Pnvarf v "
will depend entirely upon th necessl
tie of the ttste. Th prospect 1 that
th yteru of private property In land
will remain a 11 la, fur aome genera
tion at least, but that all taxw, at
least for state and local purpose, (ex'
o-pt sui h a may be derived from the
sale of fruehle,) will, In the near fu
ture, be laid upon laud. -Indianapolis

TUB IIHIOO TKIAL.
What I Dr. Itrigg to be tried for?
Tld 1 a question in verybody'i
mouth, yet comparatively few know
the kpeciflo charge against hint. All
know that be la accused of heresy; that
Is, teaching doctrine contrary to the
standard or the Presbyterian church.
Dr. Urigg' celebrated Inaugural ad
dress, delivered on th occasion of his
Induction Into th chair of biblical the
olotcy In Union lemluary, was tbe ooctv
tlon of hi arralgnmeut on tbe general
charge of heresy. Tbe formal charges
and specifications presented by the
presbytery of New York aocute him of
proclaiming .the following alleged er
rors, which ar contrary to the stand
ard of the Presbyterian church:
First Dr. Ilriggs declare that
"there are historically three great fount
aiu of divine authority the Bible, the
church, aud the reasou" thu making
(he church aud Ui reason each to be
an Independent aud sufficient fountain
of divine authorty.
Second Dr. Brlggs affirm that, In
the case of some, the holy Scripture
are uot aufflckiut to glv Uiat knowl
edge of Uod and his will which la nec
essary uuto salvation.
Third Dr. Brlggs affirms that aome
may turn from the supreme authority
of the word of God, and And that
knowledgetof him through the reason.
Fourth Dr. Brlgg affirm that tbe
temperament and environment of men
dotermiue which of these way of ac
cess to God they may pursue.
Fifth Dr. Brlggs la arraigned for
questioning the full Inspiration of the
Scriptures.
Sixth For asserting that Mosea Is
not the author of Pentateuch, and that
Isaiah Is not the author of half of the
book which bears his name.
Seventh Kor teaching that predic
tive prophecy ha been reversed by
history, and that much of it ha not
and never can be fulfilled.
Tho final allegation, which tl embod
ied In charge second, Is that Dr. Brlggs
teaohe of an Intermediate existence
after death, or a second probation.
Dr. Brtgga claims that hi view have
been misrepresented, yet a careful read

the presbytery was strictly technical,
and the case was disposed of on a tech

defense will probably be made before
the assembly, yet there seems to be a
determination of a large number of the

Mr. Gladstone's cabinet is rich In
men of experience and ability. To say
nothing of the premier himself, no
English government of recent year
ha included a group of itronger men
than Earl Rosebery, foreigu affairs; Sir
William Vernon Hareourt, the excheq
uer; John Morley ,ecrotary for Ireland;
Mr. Fowler, local government board;
Martinis of Rlpon, the colonies; and
Mr. Bryce, the chancellor of the duchy
of Lancaster. Three of these men at
least, Earl Rosebery, Mr. Morley, and
Mr, Bryce, are known wherever the
English language Is sopken the latter
two as men of letters, and all throe as
statesmen who are also scholars and
thinkers. Were this a cabinet with a
secure tenure of office In prospect, and
a reasonable chance of carrying out the
policy It might devlao.ita outlook would
be very flattering, and England might
hope from It wise aud active leadership.
It cannot be said, however, that this
ministry la likely to have a long career.
Mr. Gladstone, despite his marvelous
powers, Is very old; his task is a com

Melentlflo and Fraetleal Knowlege,
Someone has truthfully said that all
knowledge Is comprised in two classes.
The first Is that effect of mind which
I the result of ourloslty, that species of
human instinct that prompts us to In
quire the reason for everything we see,
every action which takes place among
others, among all living beings, among
the elements and among the celestial
bodies. Mankind being endowed with
reason, the next Impulse is to apply the
knowledge ao gained to some upeful
purpose, to produce some benefit to
ourselves. The first of these two classes
Is called "sclentlflo lnvestigatlon,"the
second Is called "applied science," For
Instance, we notice for the first time a
light from which smoke arises, we in
vestigate, we perceive heat, aud that it
produces a disagreeable sensation. These
are tho first sclentlflo facts. Wo apply
the knowledge so gained by resolving

opposite attributes, which It possesses (
to a remarkable degree, render possible ,
an operation that would reduce any
other metal to powder. The thickness
of the leave varies. Some sy that
the thinnest have the thickness of but
1-2.50,000 of an Inch. So thin la the
