THE McGLYNN EMBROGLIO. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 29 January 1887
THE McGLYNN EMBROGLIO. Tike opinion* of outsiders on certain subject*, being unbiassed, have in some respects a higher value than those of Interested or partial observers. The writer, perhaps naturally enough without accurate knowledge of the facts in the ease, was for some time disposed to look upon the distinguished New York clergyman with whose name we are now so familiar, as the victim of very harsh and unjust treatment on the part of his ecclesiastical superiors. It Is only fair to admit that a more thorough acquaintance with the real facts has entirely changed our views. In the first place, Dr. McGlynn has deliberately stated, In writing, his belief that'"le»d is rightfully the property of the people in common, and that private ownership of load it against natural justice, no matter fry what civil or ecrlesiastical laws it may be sanctioned; and I would bring about instantly, if I could, a change of laws, all the world over, that would confiscate private property without one p...
THREE POEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 29 January 1887
THREE POEMS. The pages of the February Atlantic are enriched with verse from the pens of three American poets. Of these contributions to the columns of the favorite among New England magazines—to which Mr. Aldrich's versatile genius has imparted fresh attractions—the reader will naturally turn first to " Crededimus Jovem lleynare." a series of characteristic rhymes in the facile metre of "Jafarmt'oa," '-The Lady of «**■ Lake," etc., by the foremost among living American authors, James Russell Lowell. To call this latest production from the muse of tbe author of the majestic ■ lf.MA.aooa" and Agassi*?' odes, a poem, would involve the unpardonable literary indiscretions of rashness and inaccuracy, since it would be difficult to point out iv the entire five pages which it fills, two dozen lines of poetry. It is, in fact, neither more nor less than a trenchant satire, in rhyme, on our age of prevalent disbelief io nearly all that our fathers nnd mothers held sacred. We are conscious of ...
A TYPE OF EGOTISM. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Press — 29 January 1887
A TYPE OF EGOTISM. The writer overheard, the other day, a I conversation between two passengers in a : horse car, —one, the junior partner In an ! extensive business house in Boston; the other, a man of literary tastes, and exceptional intellectual ability, but by no means conspicuously successful from a financial standpoint. The business maikenlarged on his good fortune in attaining his excellent position, and the success which had attended all his efforts at money-making, adding, with pious unction, an expression of gratitude to Providence for unvarying support and assistance. Now, in one aspect of tbe case, this is well enough, and doubtless creditable on the part of the man of prosperous and profitable business, since his motive in ascribing his good fortune to something higher than his own unaided efforts, was probably an excellent one. But there is another side to the question. The man to whom he thus expressed his sense of the divine goodness in its treatment of him, was real...

Washington Letter. Washington, J.o. 24, 1887. The present Congress has redeemed its reputation during the first half of thit its latt session, and it will now go down to history honored, even il it should do nothing more for the remainder of its life.
