Wholesale grocers agents san Antonio. Texas. Written for the Light 1 the legislature of Kansas which is under the control of the Alliance has passed a Law requiring non resident owning lauds in that state to sell them within ten years under the penalty of forfeiting them. Thin Law is on its face a violation of the Constitution of the Federal Constitution As Well As a Gross attack upon the rights of property. Nearly a Century ago several of the states imposed a much higher tax upon the lauds of non resident land owners but the courts unhesitatingly declared it unconstitutional and if i recollect aright the supreme court of the United states gave the finishing blow to this sort of legislation. This Kansas Law is in Plain violation of Section 2, Art. Iv., As Well As amendments v. Aud Xiv. Of the Constitution of the United states and is therefore void a Ini Cion. The Constitution forbids Tine forfeiture of property except for treason Aud limits the duration of such forfeiture to the life of the person convicted of treason and this Kansas Law violates this clause in the most flagrant manner As it punishes persons who Aie not guilty of the semblance of a crime. A he Federal Constitution also declares in still another clause that a no person shall be deprived of life Liberty or property without due process of Law a yet this Kansas Law proposes to take away property without a Shadow of Justice ground either in Law or equity. It is a High handed confiscation of property instigated by a set of visionaries who ought now to be wearing straight waistcoats in a Lunatic Asylum in instead of fabrication Laws in this enlightened age. Even was this Law constitutional it would still he indefensible on reason and common sense and be mischievous in the highest degree. Its sole effect would be to prevent non residents from investing Money in lands in Kansas even by loaning it upon mortgages As they might be forced to buy the mortgaged lands in order to secure their Dent. The lands of non resident owners pay their proportionate share of the state and county taxes in which they Are situated even if the owners resides in Texas or Ohio. No advocate of any policy withdraws land from actual ment and tillage in order to higher prices for it at some period in the future. I am from principal Aud conviction opposed to allowing corporations to own larger bodies of land than Are needed for buildings Mills factories ac., and believe Laws should be passed to prevent such things. But no Law can strip a person of his vested rights. A nation Lea moral and sentient being and As such ought not to stoop to injustice and oppression. Ibe Lieve it would be competent for a legislature to pass a Law that from and after its passage no person shall own More than 1000 acres of tillable land in any one county Iii the state restricting its operation to future purchases. Such a Law would prevent the concentration of land in the hands of a few Rich individuals and give Homes to thousands of industrious men unused to toil. In Belgium the average size of the farms is eight acres it has a denser population to the Square mile than any nation of Europe. In England by Means of the Law of entail 13,000 persons own All the land not embraced in the towns and cd lies and a Large proportion of it is Given up to Parks and pleasure grounds withdrawn from cultivation and set apart for Mere ornament. Lotus take warning from the mistakes of the old nations of Europe and commence in time to prevent the concentration of immense tracts of land in the hands of a few individuals. What caused the anti rent troubles in new York some forty five years ago several wealthy men of the Knickerbocker Stock owned almost entire counties which they refused to sell and insisted upon renting. Their ancestors had procured from Holland Grants of immense tracts of land in the Interior of new York while still in the posses Aion of the indians. In the name of common sense let the american people shun the blunders of the european nations and guard against All monopolies of land. Balmoral. I am which Settle obtain Remote my reflections. There Are some men who Oil their tongues for Gold. To Gulf the Public with an honest voice while in their hearts lie blackest crimes untold that pain nor Bliss would them for the Choice borne steal in stealth and win Peoples Grace some boldly dare and win a take the Fel lows place. When talk assaults its deeds Are very slow a tis Subtle silence strikes the quickest blow. We May often estimate the character of persons by noticing what they Admire and love the most it the grand Sublime and Beautiful we May rest assured it is the reflection of their souls. Some people Are forgetful when they borrow Good acts they forget to return them. True Friendship and disinterestedness being rare they Are like Crown jewels worn Only upon state occasions. Caution is a Wise general cowardice a Recreant Soldier. If we wish to Leru How Black a True Many a character can repainted 4efc the foiled schemers Tongue of misrepresentation malice and slander be the artist. Tattling is a Little thing and yet How painful is its sting Trust with All that life endears May reap the misery of years. Honesty a mistakes Are jewels that May be recut. Those who invest in worlds of future Bliss should aim to take a thousand shares in this. S. J. Skeet. Religious. For 8ale--a bargain.

The real foliation of a1 religious creeds is the adoration and worship of a comprehensible or incomprehensible deity according to the minds of Mankind it matters not what each denominations definition of this Majestic and wonderful Power is. From this standpoint All Are Correo at the basis it being the object to attain the same purpose under their respective forms which All feel most conducive to their own theories honesty and conceptions. In this respect religions have a solid foundation to promote the glorious benefits emanating from the one great source. Few persons oppose the foundation but Many deny the building. There Are Many instructors with Good intentions of benefiting their belief hut work eat h Iii opposition to their sectarian interest by ridiculing those who cannot see though the same dogmatic spectacles As themselves and by arbitrary measures trying to Foroe upon others the forms and discipline Best adapted to their own minds natures and ideas. True christianity will never try to impedes the search for truth nor will it Force itself against the sincerity of the heart. There Are no faults in the fundamental principles of religion Only where overzealous narrow minded compulsory teachers Are found there is where the error lies. Persuasion to the truth is one thing forcing Mankind against conviction is another. There is nothing on Earth that will draw converts to truth quicker than by having respect and liberality for others thoughts Aud feelings. Free thought is the father of Wisdom and a powerful detective in the employ of truth with these two combined religion will never find better servants. Bigotry is a merciless tyrant enc Haining Aud enslaving its Many subjects mind body and soul. Free thought and Liberty Are god like rulers striking the shackles of prejudice arrogance and fear from off the struggling slaves of forced superstition Aud wherever the Rule christianity will never be the loser. By erecting a Noble building upon its grand foundation it would attract thousands by its magnificence that now willingly turn away because honest ideas others May not be in sympathy with Are treated with scorn and contempt. Christianity a spire will never be Complete until the bars of free thought and liberality form the Cross surmounting the Cathedral of her re Ilion. S. J. Skeet. For a Short time Only.
