KEEP IT BEFOBE THE PEOPLE.
As our exchanges come in, freighted
with Alliance comments, we arc more
than ever convinced that the old system
of oppression, or might against right,
which ran such riot in the great Rebel
lion, is not dead, and scarcely even
slecpeth. While all the papers alike
condemn tho riot and misrule that held
sway where naught but order and har
mony should have entered, the differ
ent stand-points from which they look
at the facts are as wide apart as the an
tipodes. The journals that wero in open
or covert S3mpathy with the great
Slave-holder's Rebellion, and sought by
every act to retard the Nation's legisla-
t-ion, arc as unanimous in laying tho
blame of the anarchy in theTemperance
Alliance to "Woman Suffrage" as were
the same publications in charging the
other Rebellion to "Abolition." And
the same short-sighted journals that
were timid then about coming out for
the cause of freedom and justice, until
they were certain as to which would
be the popular course to pursue, are
now non-committal and deprecatory.
But the same journals that took the
lead in standing by the Constitution and
the Union or Alliance then, in the
face of foes, intrigue and anarchy, have
now, with one accord, come out like
giants, as they arc, to do battle in de
fense of justice. As in the greater Re
bellion, there never was one moment
when the majority would have voted to
violate the Federal Constitution ; so in
this lesser one, a majority were all the
while in favor of admitting the "Woman
Suffrage delegation according to the Con
stitution, and they would -not thus have
dared to thus prove false to freedom.
The irrepressible conflict goes on, and
will continue to go on until all forms of
human slavery are abolished, and evcrv
kind of intemperance is abrogated and
The packed committee who elected
Ryan are working to-day in the inter
est of the secession ring who caused all
the discord in the Temperance Alliance.
His election was palpably a put-up job,
woli understood by himself and the se
ccdere, who sought and yet seek to man
age the Temperance element of the
State in such a way as shall best prove
to the wklsky ring "how not to do it."
There is not a man in this Slate who
has one thimbleful of brains above his
ears but know3 that it is only by poli
tics that intemperance can be checked
or destroyed. And there is not a man
or woman in the State, blessed with a
modicum of brains that verges on moral
accountability, but knows that never,
until the votes of women are every
where received upon the Temperance
question, will it be possible to destroy
the wliiaky ring, let in the face of
this great fact men who have better
sense, but have not the common hon
esty to confess the truth, declare that
woman's vote upon tho subiect is a
Men and brethren, we're ashamed of
you! You knew full well that Woman
Suffrage had an overwhelming majority
J n the Alliance aiHl with all true
Temperance peojtle everywhere, and for
this reason, and this reason only, you
were opposed to us. You were deter
mined, with your Ticsident, that tho
majority should not rule, and failing in
your schemes, you sought to disorgan
ize that which you could not control;
ami now, like Jeff Davis, you only ask
to b let alone. With all duo deference
to your desires, we declare that wo will
not let you alone. We hereby give you
warning mat we shall attend every
Temperance meeting in theStutc,whcn
ever ami wherever it is possible, and
shall go, too, as "delegate," not to "run"
anybody who is disposed to do right,
but to keep before the people the all
important fact that if the demon Intem
perance is ever conquered the victory
must come through woman's vote.

A MATTERJDF WAGES.
Under this head the Oregon JJullctin
of a recent date has the following:
In Hie Woman's fcutlrage Convention a prop-
.,.v uk-ii is.orsnouiu im. a
ery popular one. Jt was this: "Tlie same
wages for the same work, whether .lone l.v
masculine or feminine hands." Till Ik a good
doctrine, fsid to Kay, however, one of the ele
ments in nits problem l competition among

they can set, or Mnrve. If une woman wtl! not

Till reduces the whole qiK-tkm to a simple

be cured by (.onVLiiiions.
"Competition among the laborers,"
ay, there's the rub! And why, good
brother, should there be more compel!
Hon among laboring women than among
laboring men? The competition of
"feminine hands" arises from the fact
that two-thirds of the work of the world
Is done by women, while man, being
the recognized property holder and law
giver in all marriage firms, owns and
controls nine-tenths of the pa v. "The
solution of this labor problem" not only
docs jtof "lie largely with the women
themselves," but it never will lie in
their Kver to solve it until they, like
man, shall have equal power with him
to make and control their own circum
stances. If all women should at once take
the advice of our brother and "do no
work that they are not paid for at what
they considera fair rate," many a fat.
lazy man would go to bed supperless, and
many another man, capable and ricfi,
but wholly unaccustomed to remunerate
his wife for her daily toil, would con
sider a demand for a "fair rate of wages"
from tho wife, who owns not a dollar,
although she has occupied years in
hopeless toil, so preposterous that he
would at once drive her from his home,
away from her children, and out in the
world penniless, never once thinking
but that ho had done his duty. By and
by, when women become voters, they
will enact laws by which they shall be
protected in property and wages, even
as their brother man is now protected,
but until that time comes, O, wives and
mothers who may have the power, set
to work at once to get your husbands
used to the idea that it is no more just
that you should perform unpaid labor
than it is just that men should do so.
There are many men who would
lake such a proposition from a wife in
good faith, and to all women, who have
such noble-hearted, whole-souled hus
bands,, we say emphatically, tuko our
brother's advice at once Cease all labor
for which you receive no compensation,
and then you will not be compelled to
"undersell" some less fortunate sister in
the labor market.
A TEEEOE T0EVIL DOEES.
J. C. Shodgrass and M. Fuller, two
gentlemen residing in Harrisburg, who
went as delegates to the Alliance, be
came so disgusted with the intolerance
and proscription that prevailed up to
noon of the second day, that they sent
in their resignation as delegates from
Harrisburg, and returned home.

"Men are women's natural protect

way, we soon came to a corner, in front
of a doggery, where a dozen or more
voting biiicds, in various stages of In

in hope to feast their prurient desires
upon some equally degraded specimen
of the oppposite sex. Not finding any

Never Tell a Lie.
How si m ply ami beau lifully has Abdel
Kadirof GliFton impressed us with the
love of truth in a story of his childhood.
After stating the vision which made
him entreat of his mother to go to Bag
dad, and devote himself to Got), he thus
, I informed her of what I had seen,
and she wept then, taking out eighty
dinars, she told me, as I had a brother,
half of that was all my inheritance; she
made me swear, when she gave it to me,
never lo tell a lie, and afterwards bade
me farewell, exclaiming, "Go, my son,
I consign you to God; wc shall not meet
until the day of judgment."
I went on well till I came near Ha
mandai. when our ICafilah was plun
dered by sixty horsemen. One fellow
asked me "what I had got?" "Forty
dinars," said I, "are sewed under my
garments." The fellow laughed, think
ing, no doubt, I was joking with him.
"What have jou got?" said another. I
gave him the same answer. When they
were dividing the spoil, I was called to
an eminence where the chief stood.
"What property havo vou got, little
fellow?" said he.
"I have told two of your people al
ready," said I, "I have forty dinars
sewed in my garmcuts."
He ordered them to be ripped open,
and found my money.
"And how came'you," said he, in
surprise, "to declare so openly what
had been so carefully concealed V"
"Because," I replied, "1 will not be
false to my mother, to whom I have
promised I never writ tell a lie."
"Child," said the robber, "hast thou
such a sense of duty to thy mother, at
thy years, and I am insensible at my
age of tho duty I owe to my God? Give
me thy hand, innocent boy," he con
tinued, "that I may swear" repentance
upon it." He did so. His lollowers
were alike struck with the scene.
"You have been our leader in guilt,"
said they to their chief, "be the same in
the path to virtue." And tiiey in
stantly, at his order, made restitution of
the spoil, and vowed repentance on his
American vs. English. Boys. At
Brighton, in Sussex, England, a beauti
ful gold cup is annually presented as a
prize to the winner of a foot race which
is open to all the schools of that place.
The race is over a course 100 yards in
length, and creates great interest in tho
city, large crowds assembling every
year to witness the contest. This year
it was made more than usually interest
ing by the offer of a cup valued at $250
gold to the winuer of a course 250 yards
long, by James Ashburv, of yatchlng
notoriety, who lives at Brighton.

A Touching Incident. A recent
sketch of the lives of the great lawyers
contains tllis touching incident in the
life of William Wirt:
In his younger days he was a victim
to the passion for intoxicating drink,
which has been the bane of so many
distinguished in tho legal profession.
Affianced to a beautiful, intelligent and
accomplished young woman, he had
made and broken repeated pledges of
amendment, and she, after patiently
and kindly enduring his disgraceful

of reformation. He kept that vow and
married the owner of the handkerchief.
