   Yates County Chronicle (Newspaper) - November 13, 1885, Penn Yan, New York                            THE CHRONICLE, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1885 Steven B. Ayres, Editor. 'Giving Thanks. The Republicans are taking no in- terest in Advo- cate. Oh, yes That's a mistake. The Republicans still .have plenty to be .thankful for. When their proclama- tion is issued it will read like this "We are devoutly thankful that, aJtho Brother Tweed's, partner is a shreyd our party has not descended txxjhe nomination of such a one f office. .It is better to be right than to be' Governor. "We give thanks that, altho Brother Tweed's partner is in the Governor's chair, there is still a majority of hon- est Republicans in the Legislature, who will see to it that proper laws are made and properly administered. For all these -things we are deeply grateful. We notice', with regret'that" Mr. Gladstone made a speech on Wednes- day at Edinburg in which he said; "What I contend is that there is no state of things now existing which, makes it necessary, just' or allowable to -raise -the question of English church disestablishment just now." all bosh. Disestablishment would 'strengthen rather than weaken the, Church of England. Without the aitifical props of official power supporting it, there would be a chance for the Church to take root in the hearts of people make deep ami; substantial growth. With this support there is no pros- "pcct of relief fronvdull, cold formal' ism. 'When'Mr. Gladstone uttered the words above he spoke as a politician, not us a deer or statesmen. But dis- establishment is a question of the nenr future, just the same. A mysterious case is that of Joseph (If' Me.' Fourteen months !was thrown out ol a wnf-on, dead, and bur- ied, yet last week he walked into his father's as as ever. The explanation of the my stery is that grave robbers exhumed his body a few hours after burial, and found that ho was still alive. Ho was subsequently taken to a hospital and cured of the effects of his wound. Mr, Stead of the Pajl Mall was on Tuesday sentenced to three months imprisonment by Justice Lopes on. tiie charge of abduction. His case has been very unfairly tieat- The law was not' made for the of such de'eds ns Ms. Whatever bo did was for a good and lawful purpose and accomplished a good eiid.' The Civil Service as now constituted, consists of three .bemijcrnte and'DoRepubliciiDs. This 'iff contrary' to the law under which it was appointed.. The law distinctly t.tates.that the Commissioners shall consist of not more than two mem- bera of any political party. The Bell Telephone patent will soon ben matter of "the past, if the. suit now progressing at Washington isrre- ported correctly1.'" The companies op- posing the patent are making ou.t a !t'_ case, and ono-whiclvshows Al- cxa'nder Bell in a1 very unenviable Kiel has! again been respited for n few days. But he'might as well be hanged this week as next week, if hang he must. The Canadian Government is making a huge mistake in executing this half crazy rebel. They can bet- tor afford to bo generous. The Uamrnomlsport Herald says that Capt. S. S. Fail-child is a happy man. lie ought to be. With a ma- jority of 'nearly a thousand nt his back'he can afford to.ba hnppy. The Captain -wjll make a.good" County Treasurer. The session of Congress which is to begin next month will probably see some stormy times. The Democrats are very generally in favor of some tariff legislation and purpose cutting down the present high custom rates. No sooner is the Legislature elected. than the fight for speaker-ship begins.. G-enoral Bakl'cagle Jimmy llubtcd wants the position this year and pro- poses to .nid Curtis are his principal confp-'titors The'Taber divorce suit in Boston has been'finished at last, arid Mr. Taber has been granted nn absolute divorce from his wife. This pnfs par- son Dowries in bad shape. Another of Hugh Conwny's stories has been brought out by the Holts. This is ''Slings and Arrows It is published with several other short r-torios in one volume. Which lilt. A. correspondent of the Canandai- gua Messenger disputes our recent statement that the Baptist church in the United State ranks second in the number of members, organizations and edifices- He says They are now really first in num- bers. Zell's reliable Encyclopedia gives the figures as follows "The regular Baptists are by far the most numerous denomination. In 1S79 they had over members in the United States." "The Methodist Episcopal church had in 1883 a total membership in the U. S. of Of all branches of Methodism (the, Protestant Episcopal, M.. E. Church South, Wesleyan, Af- rican and Free there are nearly in the country but Zell'e comparison has reference to the regular denominations of the two great churches. When we referred to the Baptist church we meant the entire Baptist connection and thus placed it second. The Methodist church entire has just about the membership indicated above, and we think is thus entitled to rank first, It seems to us that in speaking of such denominations the whole church should be. included. The Republican party in Pennsylvan- ia is composed of Blameites, Stal- Independents and numerous other factions, but the Democrats are always ready to admit that the Re- publicans are the most numerous party in the State. And in the same manner the Methodists are most nu- merous. Still, we don't think it worth while to argue the question. If all the members of both denominations will get right down to business and do all the good they can it will be better than to indulge in comparative cen- suses. Tlit Seio Chinese Crusade. The President's proclamation com- manding the abandonment of the or- ganized movement for the expulsion of the Chinese from the Pacific States, brings the power of the federal government into direct collision with a local sentiment which is too strong to submit to a mere cannonade of words. We are likely, therefore, to see some stirring times in thai) part of the- country. The anti-Chinese sen- timent on the Pacific coast has been steadily growing and has been fed by the action of Congress in the passage of laws intended to limit the further immigration of the obnoxious race The meaning of it all is that the mingling of the two races in that part of the country is an impossibility and the complete expulsion of the Chinese, as a distinct element in the population, is only a matter of time. The local authorities cannot cope with this intense antipathy to the Chinese, for the very obvious rea- son that they arc in secret sympathy with it. The east has been shocked at the inhqman treatment accorded to colonies of Chinese, inoffensive in their disposition, and wholly inno- cent of offense against laws. The very brutality of the crusade, is the evidence that'th'e anti-Chinese senti- ment will only subside when it has ac- complished the purpose nt which it airdff, the driving of that race from the land. The federal intervention may and should chock the physical duress to which these Chinese colon- ies have been suddenly subjected. But the terrorism has been establish- ed and will be kept alive until its pur- pose is ultimately achieved, and the Chinaman abandons his settlements in the and Territories. Utica Herald. Terrible Jt is rarely tho case that to the great lakes are as fatal as the one that occurred on Sun- day in Jake Superior The steamer Algoma ran on a shoal near Isle Roy- ale and sank with 140 passengers and crew. Fewer than twenty were slaved so that the loss of life wns 120 or more. Tho Algoma was a new iron steamer and at the time of tho acci- dent had on board the largest load of passengers she over carried. Tho rapid delivery postal system is not, so fnr, n success.- In the largo cities it is said the trouble and annoy- ance to the post office employes is not compensated for by convenience to tho people. The law under which the system is operating is clearly defec- tive, and Congress, when it meets, will be called upon to amend it so as to bring it more in accord with public demand. The law contains a good idea jut experience alone could point out its weak points and suggest the rem- Ex Samuel J Tilden, J not unfa- miliar name- succeeds James S. Smart as internal revenue collector in the fifteenth New York district. This looks as though the executive ax was tibout-to begin its gj rations again, election being oter. Most Democrats will thiiik this a s'ingularappomtmcnt. They will wonder that the "old man" should care to have his nephew and heir apparent subsist upon political Mtronnge, Ex. Tlie New Orleans Exposition. The North, Central and South American Exposition was opened un- der favorable conditions at.New Or- leans Tuesday, and will continue un- til the last day of tho coming March. We hope it will prove a greater suc- cess than the last exposition at New Orleans. That, as some of our read- ers know from experience, was finan- cially a failure. One of the leading features of the present exposition will be a series of special days. This it is hoped will add to the attractions and increase the attendance. Monday was American Peace Day, yesterday was American Governors'. Day, Dec. 22d will be New England Day, Dec. 29th American Congressional Day, January 1st, and Emancipation February'10th', Anglo-American Day, February 18th German-American Day, March 15th American Labor day, March 20th' American' Veterans' Day. These are the most important, but there are many others on the programme, and suitable will be delivered on each The Assessors' Case. Another Harvard Harvard University has taken anoth- er step that will attract almost as much attention as its repudiation of the classics. It has added to the faculty the Rev. John Graham 'Brooks as professor of Socialism. This step ia a recognition" that Socialism 'is no1 the subverter of civilization usually represented and that it ia a subject deserving of serious and careful' in- vestigation. This view of Socialism has long been held in Germany, France and England. In Germany, 'particularly, the word Socialism has lost the ter- tors that it inspires in this country, and has come to mean a more ecruita.- ble distribution of property tnan yel prevails. To the mind of the German political economists who have htjoken with the school of Adam Smith, Bi- cardo and John Skiart Mill, it is no more suggestive of dynamite and an- archy than the word charity or phil- anthropy. Anarchism is" the" name applied to the doctrines taught anc practiced by the Nihilists and Anarch- Democrat. A- Biff Hattx David Spelman, who announced on Tuesday at Rochester that he knew all about the attempted oi Henry Smith and his wife at 'Hall's Corners, is crazy as a loon. Soon af tor the perpetration of tho crime, 'he told Sheriff Peck that ho wanted to help Pinkerton's men ferret out tho crime.

There is an old fable that a lion and a man once met m friendly conference, and the man ex- hibited to the lion a book of hunting scenes, in which, in all encounters'be'tweeri a man and a lion represented the man as coming off Victorious and killing the lion. Oh says the the lions have no artist and they cannot show how often tho lions have killed the men. We, Mr Editor.are about in the position of the Jion, We have been right and left in the press and in the street talk as monsters, because we .have en- deavored honestly to do, our duty as assessors of the town of Milo, and when we use those words "honestly to do our "duty" we mean all they convey arid no man can "honestly, or with any respect for the truth assert, that when we took the assessor's oath that the 'assessment roll contained all the real atid persorial property in our fown, and-that rated at its full value tb the'be'Bt 'Of our knowledge, judg- ment, information 'and- belief, that jrast noti ja Sot. i Assessments a riitin. -this town, by which thtypooninan and those whose bo .concealed, paid tajces, and the. rich, only., too true to any un- biased did not ,pay their just gy lifting assessments out of that nit and 'endeavoring to cause all ,men to pay their fair and just proportion of taxes we have stir- red'up a worse th'an hornet's nest.

Also the law provides a day of appeal for the correction errors. It is also claimed, that we excluded Mr. Stewart'' as assessor.
