THE EDUCATION QUESTION.
The San Francisco Monitor calls
attention to the views expressed by
the Protestant Episcopal Bishop of
Melbourne in opposition to secular
education, and says theyure substan
tially the same as those expressed 03'
Rev. Dr. Piatt in his recent remark
labe discourse on the public school
scandal. The Monitor says: "We
are "lad to find the Episcopalian
church joining hands with us on this
important question, nor has it been
without important results, as the re
cent issue in Victoria shows."
THE BIBLE-JN THE SCJIOOIS.
The New York Witness notices
with rerret the unsuccessful eiibrfc
lately made in Chicago to secure the
repeal of the ordinance excluding the
Bible and all religious instruction
from the public schools, and says:
""Chicago, also, by Iier court of .jus
tice, under a partisan d wige, j ustinea
the murder of the leading defender
of the Bible in the schools at his own
door by a furious partisan of the
church-of Rome. Till Chicago aven
ges the foul murder and effaces the
terrible blot of that partisan trial, she
must expect great trouble."
f AN FRANCISCO MONOPOLIES. 1
The Pacific Evangel administers a
cutting reproof to the monopolies in
Sun Ifamcisco. which, it savs, are do
ing their best to destroy it: "For gas
awl water the people are paying imo
the pockets of grasping monopolists
millions that might be saved; uid our
rulers seem determined to give no re
lief. These oppressions cannot go on
much longer. We would not be much
surprised if, in the final redress for
persistent wrongs, the men who have
perpetrated them under the forms of
law would be .compelled to yield up
every dime of their ill-gotten wealth."
the ritpss and chime.
The Pacific Christian Advocate
severely censures the habit of the sec
ular press in giving the details of
crime, and we heartily approve of its
suggestion that "it would be quite as
e:isy to till our daily papers with moral
and religious successes." It antici
pates the objection that the supply
inu-t be made to meet the demand,
and that a paper filled with the re
cords of reform societies and revival
movements would not. pay, and insists
that the press is largely responsible for
the taste it supplies, and that it should
first create a taste for good food, and
then furnish it.
OUR EMPTY CHURCHES.
The Occident, in a notice of Rev.
Mr. Hemphill's sermon on "Our
Empty Churches and how to Fill
Them," is impressed with the idea that
the increasing neglect of the evangeli
cal churches, on the. part of the peo
ple, cannot ue on account of any pref
erence for what is called a more lib-
oral or rational t3rpe of religion, since
unitarianisui and universalisin flourish
even less in this community than or
thodoxy, and the Catholic churches
are the best filled. Its conclusion is
that the mass of the. people will go
where their tastes are gratified to
"the theaters, beer gardens, sand
THE POINT OF DANGER.
Bishop Huntington in the New York
Churchman says that the point of
danger for the church of to-day is not
from without, but from within: "The
world is not assailing and persecuting
the church from without. That would
be iv some respects a safer and more
wholesome condition. The world is
inside. Mammon has taken a pew,
perhaps several of them, pays for
them, gets elected to the vestry, makes
himself necessary to the paj'ing of the
rector's salary and the interest on the
church debt, sings in the oigan-loft,
dulses the tunes and the performers,
I dines the parson or dictates to him as
j suit the fancy, and looks complacent
ly around every Sunday -morning on
this submissive establishment."
NO SINGING ON SUNDAY.
The Christian Imiwn (U. W.Beecher,
editor), congratulates the songstress,
Miss Minnie Houck on her successful
resistance to the demand of her em
ployer, Mr. Mapleson. that she should
do soiiio singing on Sunday, and is of
opinion that her forgytfulness or neg- j
lect to state distinctly when she made
her engagement with Mr. M. that un-1
der no circumstances would she exer- ;
cise her musical gifts on the Lord's
day did not make it allowable for him
to call upon her for Sunday service.

RELIGION PURE AND UNDEFILED.
A writer in the Independent finds
authority in the New Testament for
defining religion to be purity of heart
and benevolence of life, and sajrs:
"This is religion. One might go to
church a year .and never dream of at..
It is the lack of it in the world which
makes a gifted and-generous manlike
Robert Ingersoll pi-oclaim the gospel
of unbelief. Is it-strange that the
most generous men, the greatest wo
men, should rise in revolt against the
selfish thing doled from so man' pul
pits, filtered through so many artificial
strata of society, as religion? No mat
ter by what name you call the revolt;
no matter how extravagant many of
its utterarrccs may be, they are not
against reliirion pure and undefiled,
but the laclfof it."

The subject of Uev.-Mr. "Wolfe's
discourse this evening, at the Congre
gregational church, invites the atten
dance of a numerous audience. In his
hands there can be no doubt but that
it will be productive of much that will
afford attentive aftertheught: "Were,

The celestial denizens of the

yesterday, but from the way "broken
china" flew 'about it was nearly all a
war of words, though one or two of

broken noses and a sort of gothic tem

knocked down by a chinaman while
the latter stole his wood pile.
We understand that a gang of
youngsters whose tender yeara would
perhaps save them from prosecution
for larceny, have been making a prac
tice of stealing wheat from the -Farmers
warehouse, in open day-time.
The question is: what have they
done with the stolen wheat! If any
person of mature years has been
guilt7 of recokiug this wheat, and the
fact can be established, such person
should be punished to the extreme
limits of law.
