CzJ She gailg liorau. ASTORIA, OREGON: SUNDAY FEUKUAUY 3, 1881 ECCLESIASTICAL MONOCRACY 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. TrxxrsoN is a shrewd business man, if he is a poet He wrote for the YontlCs Companion, of Boston, a $1,000 poem, but quietly copyrighted it in England before its appearance here; and now the Pall Mall Gazette and other English periodicals which copied it have gotten into trouble and will have to settle with the laureate. The Japanese Premier, Prince Kuug, addressed Gen. Grant, when he was in Japan, in English, so called Endeavoring to compliment him by assuring him that he was born to command, he said: "Sire, brave Gen eral, you vas made to order." Ik the course of the fifty-two weeks that ended on December 29th, there were 133,G5G births registered in Lon don. the population in 1883 being esti mated at 3,955,81-L There were 80, 587 deaths recorded in London in 1883. To what base uses do things come to in time! The late Jim Fisk's private car, once a palace on wheels and named after Josio Mansfield, is now employed as a wrecking car on the Erie road. Op the twenty-eight congressmen who represent New England in tbe national legislature, all but three are Eepublicans, and all but three were born within their state limits. The century plant, which takes a hundred years to ripen in the north, takes but twelve years to mature in California, and takes only five years in Mexico. British iron ships have been chart ered to loan wheat at San Francisco for Liverpool for 20 shillings a ton, the lowest rate in 20 years. m m - Five hundred geysers and five hun dred hot springs are reported as in the Yellowstone National park by the government surveyors.

The aggregate wealth of the seventy-six United States senators is said to be $180,000,000, In a single year the enormous sum of $27,000,000 was paid out by Ameri cans for matches.
