Lexington who had too much confidence In the occult powe of the smooth clairvoyant Some time ago Bell or Hudson came hero and established parlors at 508 North Limestone street and ad vertised that ho

applied to Mr Hudson to find It for her Tho clairvoyant was delighted to bo of any service he cones to good lady and felt satisfied that he could yan locket from the reluctant grasp of mystery that surrounds It and noticing two handsome solitaires on her hand asked If she was willing to fol low his Instructions Sho said site was ready to make the sacrifice Ho took the two rings according the

manipu lated the envelope and gave her an other with Instructions to wear it for nine days and think constantly of the lost locket Then Hudson did the appearing Ht On Wednesday tho lady opened luc

of the ministers of tho world In spreading the gospel Rabbi Silver man of the Temple Emanuel has clared that atheism and agnosticism are now generally looked upon as evidences of Intellectual weakness The Ingersolllan type he assert ed has almost disappeared from po lite society There Is a tacit under standing that religion is an evidence of culture sad refinement and that it has a wholesome effect upon the d velopment of man There was never a time he con Untied when men of all shades of belief were as Interested in religious study in worship and practice as today The religious press has Increased and Is successful financially Theo Ipglcaly institutions have improved and are better endowed It Is no un usual spectacle to see rich men who devote their energies all tho wee to malting money spend their Sundays In teaching the Bible classes These evidences and others that could be presented demonstrate that In our own day the ministers have cer tainly not failed They are a great social and even political Influence for they exert that silent ethnical force that is effective in all social and gov ernment reform Comment This fool Jew Is telluc this string of lies to gale favor

Money Is power He was elected Just by n major of one vote This vote was cat Dr Lane member of tho from Cincinnati Lane was a devil of a doctor barely making living and turning himself to politics succecedod in getting the nomination for representative and was elected All the Cincinnati representative had been Instructed by the party tc vote against Hanna It was openly claimed that all of their votes were purchased except that of Dr John C Otis who stool Incorruptible Otis exposed the whole affair told how ho and others had been approached an the free use of money that was made How extensive tho bribery and the amount of money spent will never bo known But after many purchases had been made still Ilanna did not have enough to elect him by ono nail Dr Lane who was holding out for a big

mouth shut by keeping hi there ever since Didnt Hanna come to s rescue with that 150000 So wh shouldnt McKinley help Hanna to get rid of Lane Both Hanna and Lane should mv been sent to this penitentiary an given the limit A poor man for far less crime would have been up for twenty years When n pew devil commits even a small crime courts do not neglect giving him at tendon nor treat It Indifferently When tho multimillionaire and frien of McKinley commits ono of the greatest crimes against society and government it is hushed up Yet some people wonder why So cialists and Anarchists ore on the crease The political corruption of Hanna beglning with this purchase of his seat was kept up Ho at once came more cautious and set about to vindicate himself Ho looked forward to his next election to establish this vindication He adopted other tactics wisely not risking the purchase 0 votes in the legislature thereby run ning tho risk of exposure as In tho case of Lane He allied himself riii tic corrupt gangs of politicians In tho State and worked with them In the meantime President McKinley was killed and sentiment had much to do toward softening feeling for Hannn Tho public began to forget his crime Nevertheless ho worked hard at the last election Johnson bad him badly scared Somebodys moray was pour ed into every county In the State Hanna hind openly said at one time that It Is easier to buy up a Legisla ture than the whole State He said this In answer to tho ques ton by his friends why ho did not get out before tho people more In his first campaign This reply of Itself Is enough lo forever damn him It reveals his po litical conscience and the full amount of patriotism and love of country ho possessed H But Bruits hath said He was an Honorable man Nothing

that In any way distin guished him from other men and that would live After scratching their Roads for a long time nail proposing some very common place things which I quickly proved were neither

In fact most of his greatness Is based upon tho supposition that Mr Hanna In somo strange or miraculous way was the promoter of tho prosperity of last year Conse quently Mr Hnriiia found all the gold Mr y illanna sent tho rains and made the grass grow Ho caused tho failure of crops In tho old world and thus created tho demand for our own food ho was great and It would be almost tho worth of your life In some places to deny It No political paper In tho country not even a Democratic would darn come out and print tho plain facts of Mr Hannas political career Such Is the cowed stupidity of the blind unreasoning masses Thousands of men yes hundreds of thousands know Mr Hannas public record better far than I do Thous ands know the inside while I am only Bcrntchlng the surface that which has boon plain to all It is the glory of this little obscure paper that Its columns at least aro religiously and ballot freo that It stands for a puro and puro statesmanship and for the perpetuity of this government as dauntless to opposo wrong as It Is free to expose It- Criminalf Example There Is no greater Inducement for crime among the common classes than that Inspired by the oxamples of tho rich and of those high In of floe Tho common people practice both In morals and crime what they observe In thoso of public rank and esteem If these may do so and unpunished and remain respeetabld- why not I they ask themselves Tho consequences of the political crimes of such men as Cleveland and Hanna havo made criminals by thq scoresoven In every back township in tho whole country Votes are bought and sold without a blush or protest The young man Just having come to his majority Is forever poisoned with tho virus of the political corruption of thoso In high places There is no such Wing as an honest election any long will our government endure How can It bo expected to endure when the masses almost delay those who lead as corruptlonlsts Matthew W Pinkerton Tho head of the great detective agency In a late public address da clared that a large proportion of Ihit crime and criminals are tho result cf the general political corruption an I Ishonesty I want no better eve of the truth of what I haVM mjIInside of political Intrigue If any on knows them- As long ho said as tho jority of our public servants are thieves and blackguards efforts to suppress crime will prove a dismal failure Ono thieving Al derman or official can corrupt hundreds The downfall and pun ishment ol one man known to thousands will have a more salu tary effect than tho conviction of a hundred petty thieves He who resorts to knavery to secure a public office and uses It for fraud and theft Is far more culpable than tho unlettered half civilized gamin who picks a pock et or snatches a loaf of bread to satisfy tho cravings of hunger Aldermen of largo cities erally purchase and at a considerable cost their political positions They corrupt many of their constituents and start thousands upon a course of crime TIle transition from stuffing a ballot box or falsifying an election return to picking a pocket and sandbagging a pedostraln Is not difficult Our modern politician employes thoso already corrupt ed

City AI derman is so far reaching In Its evil Influences what must be the degra dation arising from the corruption of a United States Senator What hopes can we have for the perpetuity of this

ington In tho Reed Smolt case throws a strong light on the conditions In Mormondom one of tJio types of reli gion wo have In this Christian country Tho confessions of the Mormon apos ties prove at least that the Mormon world Is gravitating back to the moral status of Abraham Jacob David mon anti tho other Bible characters who aro hold up to thin world as models So far tho Mormons have not yet reached tho depths of degradation recorded In the Bible but If they are given time and opportunity they will get there after a while They seem bo searching the Scriptures and living up to them to the best of their ability If Solomon was tho wisest man In tho history of tho world and ho Is held up as such In all Christian pulpits surely ho must havo exer cised his Inspiration and wisdom on tho marriage question as he deemed It both wise and proper to enter Into 1000 matrimonial entangling alliances with legal wives anti concubines If wo should hive up to tho letter and spirit of Bible teaching all Christians would bo polygamists There Is no es capllng this conclusion Tho Bible may be hazy In some of Its teachings hut that tho models of God gives the Christians in tho Bible Abraham Jacob Solomon and David thin man after Gods own heart were all polyga mIsts can not bo doubted Whllo the Mormons aro confessed polygamists there Is no dead sure thing but that thin Christian world Is a hot bed of polygamy on tho quiet Suppose In an Instant thin lime light could bo thrown on the lives of Cardi nals Bishops priests preachers and tho mascujlne laity of all tho churches In Christendom Perhaps tie Mormon would not bo the only ono whoso claim to office would bo disputed If a title of what tho press publishes In regard to the moral status of the American people Is true thin Mormons are practicing polygamy under thin guise of religion while polygamists among all classes of people parading In tho robes of hypocrisy are more of tpn tho general rule rather than the exception Suppose that each member of tho United States Congress and all church councils held within our borders were required to cast an absolutely truth ful vote as to his fidelity to ono wife testifying that he was as pure as Ice and chaste as snow and like Caesars wife above suspclonk There might bo I say there might be a unanimous yea vote and then again there might bo dead silence There Is ono thing about the Mor mons If they tell tho truth that Is worthy of Imitation They declare that no matter how many wives and chit dren they have they take care of them all and support them Joseph Smith President of tho Mormon Church tes tified that ho has five wives and forty two children Now I would call Smith a fine business man In addition to ing an Adonis that plays havoc with tho female heart Think of the busi ness qualifications of a man that can support five homes five wives and fortytwo children Think of the gro cery bills dry goods bills shoe bills and doctor bills to say nothing of edu cation and a few thousand little sundry bills tho average family man Is pected to pay Tho business qualifications and fidelity to family obligations of thin Mormons If they tell the ruth Is a fine example for Gentiles The aver ago man outside of Mormondom finds It a hard struggle to support ono wife and her children and there aro thous nods of men who desert their wives and children and leave them charges on their relatives or thin public while there aro other thousands of men who not only do not support their wives but their wives support them while many selfsupporting wives receive cruelty and brutality from worthless drunken husbands Twentyseven thousand wives In Now York City alone support their husbands I am Inclined to believe that tho Mormons are not such saints In family life as they profess to be and their women no doubt could make somo revelations that would show another side to tho question Women have always been tin vIe tims of religion and they ever will be until they make such a demand for a single code of morals that no religious or political system can withstand their demand Bigamists trlgauilsts and polyga mists are prominent factors In ChrIs- tian civilization yet up to date thin Mormons are tho only ones who are arraigned before tho bar of public opinion Tho women of our country are pro testing loudly against polygamy In Utah but they seem stone blind to thin tact that there aro polygamists In their own commlunltles and perhaps under their own roofs Suppose every man In Congress who ii JI has or has bono legal wife and ono or moro rubln09 wore denied his Rent does Hy ono doubt thorn would bo man vacant seats Think of scandals shootings and shameful als that havo been en acted In Wash don and other places because of desertion of legal wives and mi In official life living with ono or fro concubines The tostlmo of the Mormon women before th Senate Committee In Washington shocked the moral sense of thqfmerlcnn people and proves that i rmon women are the victims of f1unl brutality tyranny and neglect tho name of religion Tho Mormons declare that their church Is an cinder of government ablished by divine authority and Is tho only lego government that can exist In any pert of the universe and that all other governments are Illegal and unauthorised Where the loyalty of the Mprmons to the United States comes In under such church laws Is hard jo soc But Je the Mor mon church the only one that placer church laws above the law of tho land If thin allegiance of Roman Catholics Is not first to their church subordinating all governmental author ity to Papal rule then tho declarations of Popes urdlnals bishops and priests moon toothing In the history of tho Papacy when did the laity darn to disobey such edicts and how In tho history of na tions have they shown their faith by their works Now that the lights are turned on thin open defiance of law and the rage on morals by tho degratlon of women In Utah would It not be for the safety of the Republic and the moral health of the nation to turn a radium lens upon all tho convents and Ro man Catholic Institutions where women are Inprlsoned Tho crimes that have been and are today being committed against women In the name of religion are the black est In tho calendar and under tho In fluence of Bible teaching our Amen can civilization Is a seething cauldron of sin sensualism sorrow and suicide 0 yes wo aro very anxious to mend tho marriage morals of the Mormons of Utah Thin condition of the en slaved deluded women there who are the victims of vice and lust bearing children to tyrants and gross sensual ists Is enough to make the very stones In the streets cry out against such religious diabolism and the won der Is tint the Mormon women do not arise In their majesty and demand a recoknlng with tho men of that church until they would think tho day of Judgment had come and that thk women pad Mars Jupiter Venus a low coms and a punch of tornadoes and cyclones to help them get the Mormons tho only sensual ists We are dead r a the sen sualism outside of Utah that spreads a moral leprosy from ocean to ocean The Mormon holds his plural wives all at once but the polygamist outside of Utah takes his In succession cast Ing each aside as he tires of her and espouses another Think of the deserted women and children In this country today the thousands who have
