FRIDAY AUGUST 22, 18S1
The first question that one asks
himself after listening to Col. Inger
soll is "What does he offer me?" In
gersoll is purely an iconoclast He
tears down. But after the structure
comes tumbling down; after the dust
of crumbling mortar has cleared
away, what is to be done? Will he
build again? It would appear not.
Much that Ingersoll says is true; it
was said in truth, long before the
lecturer was born; it continues to be
repeated because it cannot be im
proved. But his plagiarism doesn't
help the case or make us feel better
in any way. To all of us come doubts;
oftentimes denials. What men some
times call "a want of faith" is the
very opposite. The soul hungers af
ter more, not less. The past
is so narrow, the future grows
so broad. Iugersoll's "glittering
generalities" do not satisfy the
sincere doubter. How many of us
there are who want to believe, but
find the scheme of salvation so ap
parently inconsistent. To inquiring
minds, to men who are not content to
be told that a thing is so without
wanting to know how it is so, what
makes it so, the utterances of Inger
soll are as unsatisfactory as the ut
terances of Ignatius. Poetry, elo
quence, loft' imager, fascinating
presentation of thought, all theso In
gersoll possesses ; he is an accom
plished orator and a most pleasing
man to listen to on the lecture plat
form, but he doesn't strike the level
of the distracted soul that asks:
"What is the truth?" and will be
satisfied with naught else.
The confession of the Irish in
former, Casey, that he was forced by
crown officials to frame the story of
the Maamtrasna murders he told on
the witness stand reveals a terrible
state of affairs in Ireland. It is so
much of a companion picture with
that laid bare by the Cornwall trial
that it will be readily believed. The
infamous creatures who conduct the
real government of Ireland will be
held capable of any infamy, and the
forcing of a weak wretch under
threats of lifelong imprisonment to
swear away the life and liberty of the
innocent seems small as a crime be
side their already detected criminal
ity. The "Castle" government in
Ireland is doomed. It was known as
the instrument of torture of an un
fortunate people. It will now disap
pear under. the cnrses of outraged
humanity, as the Cities of the Plain
went down under the curse of Gad.
The idea that the dominant party
ought to be held responsible for every
national misfortune, from cold win
ters to bank defalcations, is neither
new nor good, but has been in opera
tion many years in this country,
though exactly why nobody can tell.
It appears to be one of those notions
which originate no one knows where
which has no reason for its existence,
is not advocated by anybody, nobody
will openly confess his belief in it,
and yet is acted upon by thousands
who have but an ill-defined impres
sion that in some inexplicable way a
change for the better, even in the
courses of nature, will be effected by
turning one set of men out of office
and putting in others in their stead.
In the matter of treaties the dusky
Africans are ahead of us. Our extra
dition treaties contain a great many
words, but cover a very few crimes.
Here is a treaty between the king of
Ethiopia and the khedive of Egypt,
which contains few worda and em
braces every criminal case: "His
majesty the Negoosa Negust and his
Highness the Khedive engage to de
liver up, one to the other, any crimi
nal or criminals who may have fled
to escape punishment from the do
minions of the one to the dominions
of the other." This is brevity and
simplicity, combined with thorough
ness. The last trip of the steamer Oregon
from New York to Queenstown was
made in 6 days, 12 hours and 54 min
utes. This is the shortest trip on
record. The Oregon covered 2,853
miles on the trip. Her best 24 hour
run was 44G miles on the 5th of Au
gust, or nearly nineteen miles an
It is asserted that "stakes are driv
en into the sewers at London, from
which stakes a fatty deposit, left by
the current, is -scraped every day,
and after proper treatment this fat
ty deposit becomes dairy butter."
