Prohibition Versus Moral Suasion. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 31 May 1873

Prohibition Versus Moral Suasion. [W-e publish the following letter with pleasure, because we think it contains within itself the excellencies and the faults of too many temperance advocates. That the genera! manufacture and use of intoxicating drink—especially of adulterated and maddening drink—is a terrible evil, we strongly hold; and we admire and support the men who attempt its cure. But a great many temperance advocates are ns intemperate in language as the vilest drunkard is in drink. There is nothing in the sale oi wines and spirits necessarily demoralising. In all ages and countries the vintner has been a respected member of society. The disrepute only attaches to the abuse of the trade. And even this cannot, will not, bo cured by wild language. If it is to bo moved by words at all. It must be by mild and reasoning words.— Ei>. Pilot.] CONCOUI), N. 11., May 12, 1873 To the Editor of The Pilot.

THE MINING HORROR. List of Dead and Wounded. SAD SCENES. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 31 May 1873

THE MINING HORROR. List of Dead and Wounded. SAD SCENES. Nova Scotia, which but a month ago furnished to the world the most appalling shipwreck of the century, contributes another horror which, if far less apalling, is regarded as a terrible one, and creates a doupt as to the safety of the numerous coal mines which form the most important industry of the province. The village of Westville, in the county of Pictou, 103 miles from Halifax, is one' of the most extensive mining settlements in the province. Apart from the numerous prospecting operations continually in progress, there are three large collieries in full operation exporting large quantities of coal. Navigation having recently opened, and business becoming active, the workmen in most of the collieries demanded increased wages, and several strikes occurred. One of the largest mines, called the Drummond Colliery, owned by the Intercolonial Coal Company of Montreal, has. in consequence, been closed up for some days. On May 13th...

“Lo! the Poor Indian.” [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 31 May 1873

“Lo! the Poor Indian.” Astounding charges were made to the President on May 13, against the Indian l’eace Commissioners, in connection with the award of several millions of dollars of contracts. Although by law they act merely in an advisory capacity, it appears tliut in the recent awards in New Pork they virtually took them out of the hands of the Commissioner of Indian AlTuirs. The evidence is irresistible that the contracts were not let to the lowest bidder, and that there is a difference of several hundred thousand dollars between those awarded and the lowest bids. The President at once directed that the contracts be held in abeyance, and that the Secretary of the Interior request the Commissioner of Indian Affairs to report all the facts for his inspectiqn. The Interior Department to-day commenced to overhaul the work of the ‘‘Christian statesmen." The President, it 1b well known, has not lately been enthusiastic over this peace commission. They are created by Congress as a mer...

Notes of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 31 May 1873

Notes of the Week. An “irregularity” was discovered on State street, Boston, on the 14th. James A. Coo was arrested on the charge of using as.collateral certificates of railway stock raised from one to one hundred and from two to two hundred shares. The amount of the forged paper now out is variously estimated at froiA one to two hundred thousand dollars. Several of the city hanks it is thought v. ill lose largely A hanging garden of sponge is one of the latest novelties in gardening. Take a white sponge of large size, and sow it lull of rice, oats, or wheat. Then place it for eight or ten days in a shallow dish, and as the sponge' will absorb the moisture, the seeds will begin to sprout before many days. When this has fairly taken place the sponge may be suspended by means of cords from a'hook at the top of the window where a little sun will enter. It will thus become like a mass of green, and can be kept wet by merely immersing it in a bowl of water. A nice little bit of luck is r...

Temperance. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 31 May 1873

Temperance. Ox Sunday, April 27, a now Temperance Society was organized in St. Columbkille’s parish. South St. Louis, under the name of the St. Columbkille’s Total Abstinence and Benevolent Society. Forty members gave in their names and took the pledge at the Hist meeting. A laegk and respectable audience attended the Father Mathew Association’s Entertainment at the Academy of Music, St. John, X. B. The entertainment was, in our opinion, the best of the excellent series with which the Association has favored the public during the last two years. St. John Freeman. William Skiddt Woods, A. M., of New j York, lectured on temperance at Plains, Pa., on the 10th inst., under the auspices j of the Father Mathew Catholic Temper- I ance Society. The lecture was an unusual j literary treat. True wit, genuine humor, | combined with stubborn facts, fiery eloquence, and fine elocution, rendered Mr. Wood’s lecture one of the very best and most brilliant we have ever had the pleasure of hearing. “...

Great Convention of the New Jersey Total Abstinence Union. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 31 May 1873

Great Convention of the New Jersey Total Abstinence Union. Tho greatest of all the New Jersey Union assemblages-—the third annual Convention of State delegates—held session in Elizabeth, all day Monday, May 12. Important amendments were made to the constitution, among which was a model pledge—wherein the sin of intemperance is specially mentioned, and a motive—in honor of the sacred thirst and agony of our Saviour avowed, which will aid members in obtaining several Indulgences recently granted by liis Holiness the Pope. This is to be submitted to Iheßt. Rev. Bishop of Newark for approval, and it is then to be regarded by all as a truly Catholic pledge. Among the resolutions was one of thanks to the Holy Father for favors granted, and of sympathy and attachment for him in his affliction. Among the most active of the delegates, both in a deliberative and legislative capacity, were several clergymen, notably. Very Rev. Dean Byrne, Rev. lathers Hennessy, Morris, and others.

INSURANCE DEPARTMENT. Prosperity of Life Insurance. [Newspaper Article] — Pilot — 31 May 1873

INSURANCE DEPARTMENT. Prosperity of Life Insurance. ‘ ‘ The decadence of life insurance” is a phrase frequently printed in some of the insurance journals of England, and occasionally by a certain class of insurance papers here. But it is a thing which well informed persons know nothing about. All persons who are familiar with the history of life insurance in the United States, during the few years past, and who understand its true condition, as now represented by our large companies, can see no signs of “decadence” in the business. There has been a weeding out of feeble institutions, and an absorption of smaller ones by the stronger and more experienoed; but the bonelicient business of insuring human lives for the pecuniary beuellt of dependent survivors has steadily increased in the United States, and is increasing to-day. The amount of the life policies in force, in our companies, at the end of 1872, was exactly twice the amount of those in force at the end of 1867 and nearly four...

THE CAPTAIN. A LEGEND OF THE ENGLISH NAVY. BY ALFRED TENNYSON. He that only rules by terror Doetli grievous wrong. Deep as Hell I count his error. Let him hear my song. Brave the Captatu was: the seamen Made a gallant crew. Gallant sons of English freemen, Sailors hold and true. But thev hated Ills oppression. Stern lie was and rash; So for every light transgression Doorti’d them to the lash. Day by day more harsh and cruel Seem'd the ( aptaiu's mood. Secret wrath like smother'd fuel Burnt in each man's blood. Vet he hoped to purchase glory, Hoped lo make the name Ot his vessel great in story, Wheresoe’er he came. So they past by capes and Islands, Many a harbor-mouth. Sailing under palmy highlands Far within the South. On a day when they were going. O’er the lone expanse. In the north. her canvass flowing, Rose a ship of Fra oce. Then the ('aptaiu's color helghteu and. Joyful came his speech: Bnt a cloudy gladness lighten’d In the eyes of each: • * Chase,” he said: the ship flew fo...
