OUB SUNDAY EVENING LECTUBE.
These lectures, which began as a sort
of experiment, over which we felt many
solicitious misgivingfi, are succeeding
so far beyond our bumble expectations
that we have decided to continue them
as long as they are largely attended, or
at least until our necessary home de
mand for bread and become so urgent
as to compel us to absent oursclf from
the city for weeks together. Our main
source of revenue during the past year
has been derived from village lectureB.
Everybody knows there is no money in
a weekly newspaper outside of its ex
penses, neither are the collections sufll
cient in city lectures to more than de
fray expenses of hall, advertising, light
and fuel; but our heart is in this city
work, and just as long as we can afford
It, we shall be found regularly at our

for the audience, containing appropriate
Sunday evening hymns, which arc- to
be sung to good old tunes in whici
everybody can join, and we hoiie to
make social singing a profitable feature
of the meetings.
Thesubject chosen for the next lecture
is "Amusements Their Lses and
The lecture upon Polygamy was very
largely attended, and, at the request of
many friends, will be repeated on some
week day evening when we can obtain
a suitable hall.
SHIELD US, SOMEBODY, DO !
The Catltolic Sentinel is after us with
two daggers. We wish we had space for
the column of stupid spleen and ex
ploded nonsense, which that head-hidden
scribbler thrusts at us with these
"t t." "We'd like to give the public an
opportunity to behold the frightened
antics of thestirred-up priesthood. But
we cannot refrain from presenting just
one paragraph, and just to show that
our hidden reviler has implicated his
daggers to fight that concerning which
his own imagination has befogged him,
we give the following specimen of his
Catliollc ladies have a higher sense of the

of loafers and the dregs of society who run to

and Montague did not court the unsavory com
pany of those who have "no particular place of
worship." They cultivated the higher walk of
literature; anu eievaieu ineir ienow ueings uy
kindness and not by abuse and rude words.
That allusion to "the dregs of society"
is a fine compliment to the best and
pure.-t of our Portland people, who flock
to our lectures in such numbers that it
is little wonder that the priests are
scared; and that thrust at the "unsavory
company" of those "who have no par
ticular place of worship" is a lame at
tempt to flatter "Catholic ladies" into
believing it to be beneath their "higher
tense of the beautiful" to exercise a lit
tle of their own good judgment. Such a
conglomeration of detraction and but
tered soft sawder cannot be thrust down
the throats of people of brains even by
the daggers of anonymous prescription
ists. Let him of the daggers console
himself with the reflection that just so
longas five hundred eager listeners from
all churches are ready and willing to
wait upon our humble efforts, just so

through the stupid brains of fat curates
or the silly dogmas of self-righteous ac
cusers who seek to frighten us by in
vidious comparisons or Pharisaical wails
of affected modesty. If we had feared
such-dog-in-the-manger snarlings, we
should have never dared to undertake
our work, and now, as the fangs of
vituperation are diverted of their power
to harm us, we are fully determined to
continue our talks to the many "good
Catholics," whose smiling faces never
fail to greet us in tho lecture room, as
well as to the hundreds of others who
flock to hear us. "Vc are perfectly will

read many of her th robbing mysteries;
can see the evil that runs riot in society
and the cure for it; the good that might
be done and is not, and the necessity
that all who have light shall place It,
"not under a bushel, but on a candle
stick;" and the crowds that come to our
lectures give encouraging evidence that
we can tell of that we know and testify
of that which we have seen; socome on,

which, taken altogether, is the most
able production of the kind that wo

and Geo. H. Williams glistens in every
paragraph, and we are badly mistaken
if the whole is not their work. The
former, if writing alone, would have
come out strong on the woman ques
tion, and the latter, if writing alone,
would have failed to polish the sen

only prominent Republican In Oregon
who had the courage totep squarely
upon the 14th plank aud stand there
during the entire campaign; and let the
week-kneed politicians remember that
his promotion to positions of honor and

It is well known that the regular sub

is $3 00. That our friends may reap the
tho full benefit of such opportunities as
we can command to secure themselves
an extra supply of good reading, we
have made arrangements by which we
are enabled to send the New Noutk

Dcmorctl's Monthly and a splendid pair
of chromos (Falls of Niagara, and Yo

variably accompanied by the cash for
both publications at once.
The Daily Oregon JJullelin comes
out In the size of the Oregonian now,
and is manned by some of the best writ
ers in the State. H. W. Scott, who
takes the leading position, is too well
and favorably known to need commen
dation from us, and there is not a more
promising writer in the State than
Sam. Simpson. We have received sub
stantial evidence of the change In the
Bulletin's ownership in the way of ex

Our people felt happy, jubilant, jolly,

night last, in the "Liberal Institute,"

tho intention to have the jollification in
front of the Walker House, but the
night was cold enough to cool their ar
dor a little; hence the change to the hall
aforementioned, which was draped for
tne occasion with the beautiful emblem
of our Nation's glory, the old StarSpan
gled Banner; and all felt as they looked
upon It that for the next four years, as
in tho past, it would be sustained by U.
S. Grant and be a beacon light to all
the oppressed of the world. Wo did
feel a little sorry for our- brethren of
"conservatory" propensities, on the
principle of pity for the fullcn, but were
too happy to follow the Scriptural in
juuctiou to "weep with those that
weep." Tho speakers on the occasion
were ail happy, and where there aro so
many brilliant ones it is hard to dis
criminate. Thcro were Judge Casey,
lzen(?), Judge McKeau, and last, but not
least, our Gov. Woods. Judge Toohy
said it was not his funeral (ho being
Democrat), but ho felt llko rejoicing in
the election of Grant nnd Wilson, "and if
Gen. Grant had an office to dispose of,
he felt patriotic enough to accept it!"
This was set down as tho most honest
and telling speech of the evening, con
siderlng its brovity; and certainly in
this instance "brevity was the soul of
Judge McKeau mado a neat and
pretty speech, which for beauty could
not be excelled; and he always say

spell-bound by his eloquence. The Gov

future as an orator. Evon now, and ho

Mr. S. A. Clarke, of the Willamette
Farmer, was in the "City of Saints" a
few days since taking items. I under
stand he is special correspondent of the
Sacramento Union. He is as bitter as
ho can well be on the Woman Ques
tion, and the thought came Into my
mind when he remarked that "he did
not think it a nice thing for a woman to
seek office," that perhaps some woman
might excel him and get an official
crumb he wanted for himself. I have
often noticed that men of broad views
and liberal culture are all on the side of
Woman Suffrage, and are willing to
give woman equal opportunities with
her brothers. What do you think?
Weather clear, cold and dellghful.
Nothing like It anywhere, not even in
Oregon. Yours, Sybil.
Druukonnnss is not an apology for the
vice and crime which so often accom
pany it, but an aggravation of the of
fences committed under its wicked in
spirations. When a man, under the In
fluence of intoxicating liquors, commits
murder, he is almost sure to be shielded,
at least In part, from the consequences
of the .crime under the plea of drunken
ness; and his counsel will seek to palll
ate the deed with tho plea of Insanity.
Human life is too cheap to be safo In
a community where men voluntarily
put an enemy into their mouths tosteal
away their brains. When a man whets
his appetite forrtim by taking the social
glass, he is preparing himself for the
commission of crime.
I have been informed by those well
acquainted with the circumstance, that
some years since a Mr. Burrows, an
Englishman living in the vicinity of
Forest Grove, a seemingly indulgent
husbaud and father, had built a good
dwelling house, but ru fused to remove
from the old uncomfortable building to
tlie new one, always urging some trivial
excuse for his strange conduct; but as
he was "head of the family," his will, of
course, was lair. One evening two
neighbors spent the evening very pleas
antly at their house, aud during their
visit the wife urged her husband to re
move. He refused, but they noted
nothing strange in his conduct except
this refusal. 1'pon their return to their
homes, about two miles distant, they
noticed a strange light in the direction
of Burrows' house, and speeding back
on their horses to the scene of conflagra
tion, they beheld Burrows walking
around the building with a bottle in his
hand, in a state of maudlin intoxication,
He explained that he had sent his dear
family all to rest and he knew he had
made tiiem nappy, liio lamuy was
murdered and burned within the build
ing! Was ho not a murderer in the first
degree? Yet lie was acquitted on the
ground of insanity.
He who voluntarily surrenders his
reason upon the altar of appetite courts
the calamities, and therefore deserves
the penalties that should follow in the
wake of intcmperauce.
May wc not hope that when the wives
and mothers of men have a voice in
law-making these things will bo
amended? Is there not room for im
provement ? Ever for progress,
Mrs. O. F. Daniels.
Following are the opinions of some of
our contomporles on the question of
A recent dispatch from Rochester,
New York, says that some little excite
ment has been occasioned by the issue
of warrants, from tho office of United
States Commissioner Stone, for the ar
rest of Susan B. Anthony and the four
teen other women who voted at that
place at the recent general election.
The matter is soon to bo decided. Miss
Anthony expresses herself as perfectly
satisfied, and states that the matter has

aud the question of woman suffrage will
now bo decided in the courts.
The ciucstioii naturally arises, what is
to be dono with the fair suffragists if
mo courts decide mat tney iiau no rignt
to vote, and are therefore subject to the
penalties of the law? Are they to be
duly fined and imprisoned in case the
judicial decision is against them? Or
will fair-minded judges administer a
bland-like reprimand for so heinous an
oflence, and bid the fair ones go and sin
no more? But, after all, if nothing is
in view but tho administration of jus
tice, why is it that thousands of men
can voto Illegally, as was tne case at
the State election in Pennsylvania, and
still go free? We apprehend something
more than mere enforcement of the law
is Involved in the case. It is to deter
mine whether wo shall take our fair
friends with us when we go to the noils.
or whether they shall go without us, or
we witnout mem.
As to woman sufirace.itself. we would
only add that, in view of tho result at
tne recent election, tt is demonstrated
to almost a certainty that male suflrage
Is not'n success. When we take into
consideration the fact that hundreds of
thousands or mem muse to exercise
this blessed privilege of tho free, it Is
not at all surprising that the ladies
should wish to be placed in anosiUnn
where they can enjoy the Immunities of

However much old fogies may growl
or even divines protest and splutter,
there Is no doubt the cause of woman
sutrrage is more silently perhaps, but all
the more surely and swiftly, approach
ing realization. It has make several
long strides, In the last thirty or sixty
days, towards success, of which the
country scarcely seems aware.
The Republican party has secured a
wonderful national triumph, one which
exc"ed4 even the most sanguine expecta
tion of its friends, and Upon a platform
one chief plank in which commits the
party to the doctrine of woman suf
frage. Henry Wilson, the Vice President
elect, Is one of tho boldest and oldest
champions of woman suffrage in all the
country, aud Is nowono of the vice pres
idents of the National Woman's Suf
The suffragists will doubtless, and
have a right to, claim that their cause
lias thus been passed upon by the na
tion and received the endorsement of
nearly a million majority, aud tbey may
claim too, that this triumph, is largely
due to their aid in tho campaign.
Besides this, women did vote at the
late Presidential election in -several
' places. Some ladies voted in Detroit,
Slichigau Susan B. Anthony, and
fourteen of her lady friends, voted in

facts as to matters of current news and
