A RpllgloiiH Meet In Alabama Too Good to vf in Tlila Country MODILK. Ala., May refusal Monday of John Shmns, of Choctaw county, Alo., to be sworn as a juror in the United States circuit court, in session here, brought to light the existence of u singular religions sect. Judge Tonlmin desired that Simms be sworn to answer to his qualifications as a juror. He declined to swear, giving OH his reason the Biblical prohibition, "swear not at all." He was then asked to affirm, and did so. To the judge's query why he refused to serve, Sinirus replied that he would convict no one as this would condemn him, aud again quoted the scriptures: "Judge not lest ye be judged." Himuii is u member of an unnamed sect that at present numbers about fifty. It prints a small folio folder called "The Veil Rent." ut Womack Hill, Choctaw county. The members refuse to recog- nize the power of human authority control thuin in any manner, claiming to be answerable to God alone. They decline to pay taxes, to be amenable to man's laws, or to be governed by man. A brother of Simms was indicted by the lost Federal grand jury for running an illicit distillery. When the deputy marshal served the warrant of the court upon him he tore the paper to pieces. He told the officer that lie made the corn and distilled it without conceal- ment: that it wail nobody's business but his own, and warned the deputy to leave. _________ _____ CONGRESSMAN HOOK DEAD.

NEW YORK, May Chilian minister at Washington has re- ceived a copy of President Balmaceda's address to the Chilian congress which assembled in Santiago on April 20, 1891, in which he says: Extraordinary events well known to you, have distarbed public order. The traditions of peace, moderation and wisdom, which have been character- Htic of the domestic policy of the conu- ry have been interrupted, and many arsons have failed in that loyalty which las entitled us to the esteem of other nations. The naval officers who were jound to maintain the public order of he republic at home and sue to its safety abroad, have taken up arms against the ;overnment on the 7th of January on ward the National fleet ut Valparaiso, lisobeying their general commander, iear Admiral Williams, and taking on joard the vice president of the senate Hid the president of the house of repre- cntatives. A few hours after the cou- unuuation of these acts, without a pre- cedent in the naval history of Chili, they :aine back to Valparaiso in (fjen r el Mil- ion against their constitutional chiefs and the civil authorities. During the period of three months, since the beginning of the revolution, there is not aii instance of a single pop- ilar outbreak in favor of the movement nitittted by the mariners, whose power s actually confined to the ocean. The leet has been unable to keep steadily nor occupy any port, of the territory containing any dense population, anil in order to do so at least they had to besiege and bombard the ports of the north and set on fire the towns unfortified, ne against the cosmopolitan population of Tarnpoea and using hostilities of a character worse than any of those em- jloyed during the conquest of Chili. The provinces of the north are sep- arated from the entire country by the ocean, upon which the rebel fleet domi- nates, and by vast deserts. The revolu- tionists have succeeded in seizing them ifter seven bloody combats. Their fleet HIS not had sufficient strength to upoet ;he lawful government, but it has shown enough to disturb the public order whlcli our wise institutions assured for is, and it has proved likewise that their eaders possess the courage necessary to sacrifice the lives of the children and pread misfortune and evils throughout oar country. The navy has not the right ;o the order given by their sn- jeriors. The constitution forbids it. Jbedience to the president is prescribed jy the constitution, and notwithatand- ng that, their officers have declared ;hemselves in favor of a pretended con- rretts delegation, to establish a military dictatorship, Congress has not met even on their own authority. For three months, from October, the date of their adjournment, to thi  constant splits in the ranks of the Liberal party, The Liberal party has failed to reach a unity of ideas, of direc- tion and method, without which it could not be sufficient for the govern ment of Chili. Thanks to the accumulative vote, the Erruzuriz administration, after most energetic endeavors during the period from 1871 to 1870 ended by leaving the direction of affairs to a congress com- posed of six different groups and o: individualities under no specified politi cal affiliation. The Pinto administra tion stood the consequences of this dis location of men ana parties in parlia ment. The ministerial changes ware then very frequent, and if the war p: 1879 had not taken place this adminis tration might have been ended hi the middle of disasters occasioned by the presidential elections, which had snb ijlitted to so severe a test the Libera party and placed the republic in a vory dangerous situation at the momen of coming to a cloae the presidentia terra of Senor Pinto. The divided con dition and anarchy in which the Liberals were found, when the time came for the choice of candidate for president of the republic would undoubtedly have led to very serious tfonble, if Gen. Baguedano had not so patriotically withdrawn froir the electoral contest. Five years latei at the expiration of the aclministratioi of'President Santa Marina very serion troubles were met in congress, on uc count of a Liberal candidate for the fol lowing presidential term. Being elected president of Chili, I have thought it to be mv duty to in augurate a policy and follow a line o conduct to avoid at the end of my lega term the renewal of the dangers which have threatened my preceding admin isfratious. I tried to give the Nationa pui'ty u participation in proportion tha could not incite the jealousy and re sistance of their numerous adversaries The Nationals refused to render m their assistance, although their co-oper was imposed by the clearest politi pal MUM, After that date all my ef forte to unify the Liberal party hav proved ineffectual. From this moment a straggle tho majority of congress and lit' executive power. 1 then thought it o be my duty to cloae congress, in the lope that a short time of reflection and aim would bring the groups of the loalitiun to fair and more reasonable erms. Unfortunately the evil has been lone and we have now to stand its leplorable consequences. On the 7th of January last, I found myself in the same predicament in j which many of niy predecessors have )een, and t was in 1887, that is o say, without an appropriation law ind without any rule fixing the strength if the regular army and naval forces. fheae facts could not be made the basis, or even the pretext for a revolution, nucli as they have often taken place be- 'ore at different times. As I have, by ;he constitution, the duty of administer- ng the affairs of state, and of extending my authority wherever required for the iafety of the nation, within and abroad, was bound to assume all the necessary lowers to suppress the revolt headed by :he armed majority of congress, bent ipon subverting public order and the nstutitions of the country, I have endeavored to gather all neces- sary elements to defend and secure the inph in Chili of tne principles of luthority, without which nothing dura- jle or solid could exist. The action ;he courts of justice under the military dictatorship of the revolutionists, wherever they rule, might bring coii- licts, and it has been decided to suspend ;he hijjh tribunals during the present conditions of things us prejudicial to the country. The license of the Chilian press has been carried in- our clays to ex- jremes never before reached in any other part of the world. Not only the jovenmient and public men, but society, ind even families, have been carried in ;he tempest of political passion. T ;he low must keep sacred the iberty of everyone to publish his opin- ions. But there must not be other jffenses of the press than those so quali- 3ed by the penal code. In this way the true liberty of the press will be definite- ly settled and at the same time it will secure the responsibility for the abuse of the same mid the punishment of the offenses against persons or the public morals. The constitution, with the laws au- thorizing the collection of public reve- nues and tuxes, the appropriation for expenses, the pluco of resilience of the regular army away from where congress meets, and the strength of the standing army and navy, are of the public order necessary for the existence for the exec- utive) power. The only annual law of great importance is the one of the ap- propriation of the National service, anil ougtit to consist of fixed expenses as- signed by special laws and for variable expenses. The first would be in the total amount of the appropriation and could not be discussed. The variable expenses would be dis- cussed and approved by congress during the- ordinary period, and on every occa- sion increase of extraordinary circum- stances preventing the approval of the same existing law ought to be considered in force during the next year. This manner of present- ing and discussing the appropriations is adopted in the countries of tho highest state of civilization, even by those ruled under a more strict parliamentary sys- tem. It is not acceptable in any case to leave to congress, or a majority of their members, the power to refuse to approve the fixed expenses having character deriving their origin from previous laws approved by congress. The power of suppressing or approving or not fixed expenses necessarily implies the possibility of a disorganization and failure in the preservation of public order. When the reform thus conceived be- comes a fact peace among the state powers will be forever established and consolidated. Few governments have hail to meet more unmerited aggressions or more gratuitous inculpations than those with which I have been assailed: but I have not on that ground lost the serenity qf my spirit nor the perfect tranqmlity of my conscience. I have every confidence in God, who presides over the destinies of nations. JOSE MANUEL BALHACBDA. OHIO STATE HEWS. Dispatches Detailing Important Happenings.

The case is to be a test of the consti- tutionality of the child labor law, and the manufacturers have joined in taking stand against its enforcement, having already encaged Yaple, McCabe to defend them. The law provides that minors under 10 shall not be allowed to engage in employment whereby their lives or limbs are endangered, their health injured or their niorais depraved. The cigar manufacturers who are going to make a test case maintain that the employment of minors in cigar factories is not injurious to health, but Inspector MacDonuld has the opinion of meaical men that it is. Some of the Cincinnati manufacturers have obeyed Mr. MiicDonald's direc- tions. Sorg Company have dispensed with thirty-three minors, Joseph Ghm- ther with two. N. Bathkaiup with one, John V.

Mall Carrier ftW. C. milord Trouble upon Himself. W. C. Clifford, mail carrier in the third ward, has been suspended by Postmaster Ozier for a period of 10 days without The suspension was made on grounds that has willfully neglected the delivery of mail to various persons in his district. A number of complaints to that effect were made but investigation failed to clearly substantiate them. In every instance Clifford gave a plausible ex- planation. He was repeated! v cau- tioned by Postmaster Ozier against willfully falling to promptly deliver mail to those from whom such com- plaints were heard, and he was told that if such negligence continued he would Be removed. This warning bad no effect. Mr. Ozier kept a close watch on Clifford and last week an in- stance occurred in which there could be no doubt about that Clifford's ueg- lecting to deliver it wasiutentional.Mr. Ozier was convinced that such was the case and he temporarily suspended Clifford pending the action of the de- partment on his recommendation that Clifford be removed. Postmaster Ozier has borne Clifford's short-comings with more than usual patience and leniency. This was ou account of the young man having a wife to support aud on account of nis family but his negligence was detri- mental to the local postal service and it affected the credit of the other car- riers lor which the only remedy is sus- ension and removal. Neither the young man nor liis riends have any cause for illfeeliug oward Postmaster Ozier, for the public as a right to demand satisfactory pos- al service, and Clifford was cautioned nd had ample time to redeem himself. 'bat he did not heed the advice given im, he has but himself to blame. George Ehodes, the substitute mail arrier, has been recommended for ppoiutment as regular postman in the vent ot Clifford's removal by the de- lartment. Tuleao narbett.

"YOU OLD REPROBATE." Editor Journalistic Pleasant- ries In Florida. In last Sunday's NEWS an article van republished from a Cleveland pa- >er which gave an extract from the 'alatka (Fla.) Herald in which the ditor of the latter paper was "wadiug nto" J. M. Jolley, formerly of this ity, who is now editor and proprietor fthe Halifax Journal, at Daytoua, Fla. A copy of the latter paper of Jay 20 reaches the NEWS giving full details of the manner in which the rumpus arose. Editor Jol- ey, who is remembered here as a great union man andean ardent Republican, made editorial reply, dignified but, orcible, to an article in another south- ern paper which was booming Call for "Jnited States senator from Florida on ,he strength of his being a representa- ive of the "Lost Cause." In comment- ug on this article in Jolley's }alatka Herald man, who appears to be quite a went off half- ocked in the editorial, a fair sample of which was published in last Sunday's NEWS. In the last ssue of his paper, Mr. Jolley repro- iuces his previous editorial and the nil text of the abusive reply by the Palatka Herald, and then follows it vith a reply, too extended for republi- jatiou here, but full of withering sar- :asm at his opponent's expense, but, withal, entirely dignified in tone. The closing paragraph of the article is as "ollows: "As to Mr. Pratt's vaporiugs ibout courage, cowhiding, powder aud ihot, etc., they are unworthy of notice. The brave man does not vaunt his courage nor resort to violence upon slight pre- exts. That is the role of the despera- do. We cannot so far demean ourself as to hold any controversy with Mr. hereafter." It is to be presumed hat Editor Pratt will want gore and ots of it. BRAWLIN A BROTHEL.
