purpo3es. They have, therefore, tithed
mint and anise and cummin, ; that they
might! favor monopolies and create a
moneyed oligarchy, upon whose power
they have relied . ior continuing - their
hold upon the government for an indef
inite period. Internal taxation has been
a prime feature in this scheme for con
verting this elective government into
a Tjseudo monarchy. The revenue from
this sojurce has amounted to large sums.
Much of 4his fund has never reached
the national treasury, but has been used
to corrupt the fountains of justice. A
large share of it has gone into the hands
of an army of menials who have all
along been the slaves of this moneyed
oligarch v. As the price of their slave
ry they have been ordered and required
to intimidate freemen in the exercise of
vested rights to seize ballot boxes and
bribe witnesses to change their contents,
and thereby destroyed the virtue of our
boasted franchise and to put voters up
on the shamble; as so many sheep for
the market. I
Think not, my friends, that I talk
too much about money in my sermons.:
As it was in Pharisaic times, so it is
now. Taxation (money) has usurped
the place of patriotism and constitu
tional law. ItTias displaced public vir
tue, and proposes to wield the destinies
of a free pe'oplej by its corrupting pow
er. If ot satisfied with internal taxa
tion, With its deep and damning con
sequences, the modern Scribes and
Fhansees who have so long controlled
our natiodal affairs have fixed upon us
a system of tariff taxation, by which
hey hoped to continue then grasp up
on, the national throat. Indeed they
havei apparently acted upon the as
sumption that j money is power, and
the " whole administration of govern
ment! by, them is an acknowledgement
hat Vby this we rule. lhej tariff sys
tem has yielded, immense profits to a
few manufacturers, and at the same
times has impoverished the laborer and
consumer, inese same monopolists
withi their great fortunes join in 'with
Presidents and cabinets, with suborn-
ed Judges and juries, with the thieves
and robbers who hang around the ; na
tional treasury,! and with venal aspi
rants for high official stations, to cor
rupt the electivle franchise and defeat
the popular wnJ. Our recent elections
have shown how confidently money
wasrrelied upon to elect a Chief Magis
trate of the nation. Calculations were
made and speculations indulged in as
to how many votes a given sum of
money would -purchase with as little
moral concern as would a stock dealer
feel! as to the number of beef cattle he
could purchase fpr a given amount of
money. These calculations, accompa
nied with the demand of a Presidential
candidatewere presented to monopo
lists who were asked to meet the de
mand, and the money was advanced.
Well, my friends, there is one lesson in
this transaction by which we may
profit. We have learned the States in
which they live and the people who are
base enough to sell their votes, as also
the! aspirants who were so morally de-
i f N i i nf ii l t
graaea as to sees omce mrougn sucn

The omission of the weightier mat
ters of the law by the Scribes and
Pharisees was a legitimate corollary
from well defined premisesthe legiti
mate effect of a given cause. As it
was in the time of the Pharisees, so it
is in our times. Itis not to be expect
ed 'of corrupt magistrates (chief or
otherwise) that they should punish
criminals. 1 cannot be hoped that
corrupt rulers who have corrupted oth
ers if or the sake of omce should punish
dishonest subordinates. Having per
jured themselves, it is not likely that

There is something Tery significant
in the way our Lord puts the tmestionV
They had "omitted the weightier mat
ters of the law.M In their rage. after
tithe of mint and anise ana cummin,
combined with their . odioushypocnsy,
they neglected to ."bring criminals to
justice. To do so would' have been
virtually self-condemnation v In like
manner it has been with us. ' Men who
go into the market to purchase office
by purchasing votes can" never be
trusted to administer honest govern
ment. Just so sure as they become
pullic.magistrates, they will pmit the
weightier matters of the law. Such
haijpeen our unfortunate condition for
a lumber of years, and i the tendency
has been to anarchy, to unsettle honest
business, to increase the power of mon
ey changers, to convert J$6. temple of
liberty into a den --'of thievesy - to clothe
the merciless and heartless with au
thority to lord it over the helpless and
innocent, and to the development of
that extravagance and luxury which
affect chastity and purity, and have at
all times been the precursor of the de
cay and downfall of republics.
There ismuch in all this, my friends,
for serious thought, and to awaken the
American people to' a sense of the
most terrible danger. And let the in
coming dynasty bear in , mind that as
the inexorable maledictions of the Al
mighty rest upon the corruptions and
hypocrisies of the past, they will find
no immunity in like conditions; "For
God is King of all the earth"
nhd Pharisees in the days of our Tjord.
They were sticklers about the tithe on
mint and anise and cummin, but disre
garded the weightier matters of the
law. The pretended much personal god
liness and great love and reverence for
the law, and yetir under the guise of
hypocrisy, they were stern and relent
less in having the tithe .on mint and
anise and cummin; collected. For this
purpose they quartered a very ar
my of publicans upon the people
publicans who invaded the sanctity of
the home altar with their unholy pres
ence.' Nor is this all. The publicans,
knowingthat theyjacted tinder false
authority under authority not derived
from the fundamental law, felt them
selves irresponsible, in a great measure,
and consequently they added to the op
pression of the people by levying and
collecting fraudulent taxes by which
to enrich themselves. So you see, my
friends, the whole administration was
wrong, from the Sanhedrim down. It
was false in fact, false in spirit, and
false in the execution of it. It was a
ring service from which God was, in
fact excluded, and money was held to
be the chief good.
The Scribes and Pharisees had, no
doubt, a twofold object in that rigorous
gathering of the tithes. It helped to
swell the funds lof the national treasu
ry, of which they had control. It also
filled their own larders with great abun
dance, i Nor did it matter with them
that the poor laborers, who produced
these luxuries of life were in destitution
I ahefwant. Little did they sympathize
with the sad wailings of widowhood and
orphanage, so they had ample means for
living, in wantonness and excess. Is it
any wonder,' then, that our Lord should
array before them their sins of oppres
sion then repudiation, in every practi
cal sense, of the weightier matters of
the law and, while holding up before
them the hideDtisness of their hypocri
sy, should utter the most terrible male
dictions against them r
T , T. ll ! Ill
in reviewing tnis; wnoie transaction,
there is one lesson, my friends, present-
ed tor our- consiaeration, which we
should learn well. It is this: that the
Scribes and Pharisees were both reli
gious and political hypocrites, and Swe
are taught in this, case that God does
not tolerate political hypocrisy and dis
honesty any more than he does religious
hypocrisy. The sequal shows this, for
trod not only brought to an end the
Jewish church and the Jewish religion,
but swept away their national govern
ment at the same time.
Our Lord also arraigned them for
omitting the weightier matters of the
law, "justice, mercy and faith." In their
rage after the tithes and by disuse they
had broken down all the force of the
legal tribunals of the government, so

From Our Regular Correspondent.
Wasiiixgtox, D. C, Jan. 10, 1885.
The Inter-State commerce bill lias
been passed in the House after a long
and able debate. Mr. Regan, the au
thor and tireless advocate of the bill,
may well congratulate himself on this
achievement. Last session he was at
death's door with an insidious disease,
aud no one believed that he would
live to see the triumph of his bill.
He then said that lie would be will
ing to die but for the incompletucs
of this work. There are few more
powerful, more ready, or better equip
ped debaters in the present Congress
than Mr. Reagan, of Texas.
The beginning of the new year has
been characterized by a resumption of J
the social entertainments of the season,
but there is a lacktrf the splendor,
the gayety, the chic, of former yea is.
The hard times may have something
to tlo with the social depression, but
hard times do not piuch office holders
whose salaries are as certain as taxa
tion. 1 he causes ot depression are
multiplex. It takes money to make
the social machine go, and many of
the social engineers lost their money
in wagers on Blaine. Then, again,
they realize that it is prudent to be
provident, and save money to buy
tickets to Ohio. after the 4th of March.
Col. Lamont has been in this city
for two days, looking over the field.
Very few knew that he was the pri
vate secretary of the President-elect,
and he was not annoyed by office
seekers and interviewers. He went
to the White House yesterday after
noon, and met President Arthur, who
introduced him to his private secretary,
who in turn pre-ented the clerks about
the throne" and explained to him
briefly the daily routine of official work
at the presidential mansion.
Last night the Chairman of the in
auguration committee had a long talk
with Col. Lambnt, who remarked that
Governor Cleveland wasaversetoshow
and ostentation, but that on the other
hand he did not wish to appear osten
tatiously simple or austere. The de
tails of the inauguration will therefore
be left entirely to the committee.
Left to the committee, the inatiQU
ratiou promises to be a grand affair,
with a grand march to the capitol in
the forenoon, a grand pyrotechnical
display in the evening, apd a grand
ball at night. Think of a ball room
of capacity for twelve thousand per
so s, and with floor sufficiently spa
cio is for two hundreds lid fifty colill
ions dancing in tune! At night Penn
sylvtnia Avenue will be as Ii
! Some of the troops will sleep in the
Pullman cars which bring them here;
others will be billeted in hotels and
halls where they have already engaged
qnarters. A few companies will be
quartered in Alexandria, where they
will be within lialfian hour of Wash
ingson by rail or boat. If the pro
verbial inauguration weather prevails
on the fourth of March,: the military
will have a taste of the horrors of war.
The last three inauguration days were
extremely disagreeable. Congress
ought to pass an act extending the
term of a President to six years and
mangurating him on the fourth of July.
Then the military companies could
have a picnic and see Washington ar
rayed in green sward, foliage, foun
tains and flowers. .'
Contempt is the meanest and small
est thing in the world, because it keeps
the heart in which it reigus from ever
growiug or learning; because it never
looks up to see anything above it, and
sees only what is lowest in things be
ueath it; and to the truly noble, the
attitude of the contemptuous heart is a
mean stooping, which lowers its pos
sessor below the fowest of those lie
would despise. There is always some
thing in every one to honor, if we con Id
find it out; but contempt passes by all
that could be honored to look at that
which is lowest. Contempt and envy
are often only the outside ;and inside
of the same moral weakness. Such
people profess to despise what they
