PROHIBITION VOTE IN SWITZER
LAND. Ox Sunday, October 25, 1885, the
Swiss people, by a vote of 229,619
against 157,035 insisted on upon alter
ation in the Federal constitution to
enable them to figlit with more suc
cess "Alkoholismus." During the sub
sequent eighteen months the whole
confederation, every canton and every
commune, from end to end, has been
excitedly debating the question, in
preparation for the day of decision,
Sunday, May 15, when the entire peo
ple, as ultimate sovereign was called
to give its definite yes or no for or
against the "SchnapspesL" The
total reported at Berne up to last
accounts, stood as follews: Teas,
201,135; nays, 137,091. The returns
from a Jew communes have still to be
mfl The "interests" have done
their utmost, sparing neither agitation
nor money in order to lead the people.
But the stolid indifference of
the Switzer to electioneering argument
is traditional. He makes up his own
mind and quietly waits until the day
of the "Folksvote" (the Referendum)
to record it In every canton except
the extreme old Calvinist Geneva and
the equally old Roman Catholic Frei
burg, little Appenzell-inner-Bhoden,
and Solothurh, the majority of the
yeas, is quite a political and social
portent In Geneva and Freiburg
the mass treble and quadruple yeas.
The vote of the "military," which is
taken separately, is 4 to 1 against "Al
koholismus." The vote of the chief
towns is remarkable. Thus Zurich
gave 13,263 yeas and only 2,220 nays;
Basel, 4,881 yeas, 684 nays; Bern, 4,707
yeas,. 881 nays; Lausanne, 2,462 yeas,
618 nays. It is evident that the
strength of "Alkoholismus" in Switz
erland lies in the purely country pop
ulation. -., ..- i - '
A MATTER OF OPINION.
The excommunication of Dr. Mo
Glynn, thinks the Alta, enables that
gentleman to reopen discussion of the
land question in direct antagonism to
the authorities of the church. The
issue is simple. Dr. McGlynn holds
that private ownership of land is im
polite and impious, an offense againBt
man and a sin against God. Those
who own land are, therefore, decidedly
in contempt of court, and can purge
themselves only by abandoning their
possessions and byjseeking Divine for
giveness by prostrations and penances
which the doctor has not prescribed.
. He. says that -he is unfrocked because
he "taught the doctrine that God
made the land for the people." The
quarrel between the doctor and the
church may be dismissed with the ob
servation that if ho teach that doc
trine, and-the church teach the, oppo
site -by maintaining that private
ownership in land is .not a sin against
Heaven, either he or the church must
yield or they must separate. Neither
would yield, and so by act of the
stronger they part company. The
church, to be no longer responsible
for him, says so in the only way known
to ita laws, by excommunication.
Even, so did the Methodist church
treat the heresy of Dr. Thomas and
the Presbyterian that of Professor
Swing, and so the authorities of An-
dover have recently administered dis
cipline to Professor Smith. The form
and phrase in which any organ
igation may choose to relieve
itself of all responsibility for
an individual are, to the rest
of the world, secondary matters.
Churches and parties are for the pur
pose of teaching certain truths and
principles, and this they cannot do if
they fellowship non-believers in those
truths and principles. As long as
politicians put a test to voters at a
primary, they cannot impeach a
church for using a test at the com
munion table. Dr. McGlynn is no
more a moral martyr because he iB ex
cluded, from the church than is Mr.
McGlynn because his vote is rejected
at the primary. Neither is the vic
tim of persecution, because each has
chosen to set up his private judgment
against that of the organization which
had fellowshipped him in the belief
that he agreed with its judgment.
Of the 76,373 "superfluous -women"
in Massachusetts more than 85 per
cent are widows. A Boston corre
spondent otthe Chicago Times shows
that the preponderance of females in
Massachusetts is not due, save in
small degree, to the emigration of
young men. The principal cause is
the hazardous nature of the avoca
tions of a large proportion of the wage
workers of the state. Of the Glouces
ter fishermen, from 90 to 160 are lost at
sea every year, and with few excep
tions, each of these fatalities makes
another widow and more orphans.
The annual slaughter of railroad em
ployes, miners, factory-men and oth
ers in. kindred occupations is appall-
ing. Measures for the protection of
the wage earners against avoidable
perils incident to their avocations are
meeting with increased popular favor.
The legislature has already enacted
two laws of this character, which
promise beneficent results, and they
will doubtless be followed by other
legislation in the same line.
There is a cruel custom in vogue
of erecting in the house temporary
altars to the dead in the shape of
preserved flowers, photographs of the
funeral paraphernalia, and other un
wholesome memories that only serve
to defeat their end. Better forget
fulness than such pagan rites as
these. Better still to keep our dead
alive by our daily spiritual walk with
them, 'the doing of nobler deeds in
their name, the reaching after the di
vine heights to which they have at
tained. We can never forget them if
we would. But the dead and with
ered relics of their poor clay is but a
selfish, worldly way in which to re
member them, useless to them and
most injurious to the living. There
are spare chambers in the heart in
which to hang the funeral wreath, side
by side with the crown of rejoicing.
Men should not kick out of harness
too soon and think they are "loo old
for work." Some of the brightest and
most useful writers and thinkers of the
world to-day are well along in years.
