We have hoard much of political
bosse3. The church boss is less wide
ly known to fame. His existence?
however, is b9yond dispute; and he
makes himself powerf ally felt in some
localities. The church boss is gen
erally a layman, who carries into ec
clesiastical relations the same aspira
tions for leadership which find
expression in political or mili
tary life. He is willing to fight in
the army of the Lord, but he wants
to wear epaulets. The difference be
tween the man who is elected to this
distinction and the man who elects
himself is as inaiked here as it is any
where else. Of all existing forms of
church government, the worst that
cau be devised for any single church
is a monocracy a one-man power.
There are churches that suffer great
ly from this form of oppression. We
have seen them wilt and die under
its bane. The minister, as well as
the people, was under the mono
cratic thumb, responding to its guid
ance, as the driver of a horse-car re
sponds to every touch of the bell from
the conductor. When the mono
crat owns the church or furnishes
most of the money by which it is
conducted, the congregation may
tacitly acquiesce in the exhibition of
authority. A sort of unwritten com
pact may exist by which a congrega
tion lazily and cheerfully yields the
management of its affairs to the man
who pays its bills. But, in churches
where taxation is evenly apportioned,
representation is sooner or later to
be claimed as a right; and a
rebellion breaks out against the
one-man power, in which the
principle of liberty is usually
vindicated. Sometimes, the minister
himself attempts to play the part of
the mouocrat, and rules the church
with an iron hand. There is alwayB
more or lesB risk in such assumption,
especially in communities that are
educated to self-government -If the
minister, like Samson, attempts to
carry the whole church on his
shoulders, he may eventually find the
edifice tumbling down on his head.
When the minister is to play the
mouocrat, he is more likely to suc
ceed, it he conceals this determina
tion from his congregation, and,
through i subtle and undefinable art,
guides them without letting them
know they are guided.
Some of the Washington territory
papers think that women should not
be compelled to serve on juries. Then
they should not be allowed to vote.
All privileges bring attendant respon
sibilities, and if a woman wants to
vote she should fulfill all attendant
requirements. Of course if she doesn't
want to, it would be unjust to compel
attendance as a juror. A registry law
would simplify the problem.
The train that makes the run of
912 miles between New York and
Chicago in 25 1$ hours makes only
seven stops; but there are so man
bridges to cross and villages to pass
through that the speed is necessarily
relaxed as often as once every ten
miles eLe the average for the entire
run might be much higher than 35:29
miles an hour.
