THE PrrTSBUKGK DISPATCH, MONDAY, FEBRUARY U8, 1889.'
AWOEDTO THE THIEF.
Bev. Dri W. J. Holland Characterizes
TOGETHER WITH CBIMLNAL SNEAKS
Business Gamblers and Those Who Adul
terate Foods are Hit.
SERMOX SUGGESTED BI EXPERIENCE.
A week ago last evening, while delivering a
sermon in which he referred to theft, Dr. "W.
J. Holland, pastor of the Bellefield Prcsby
teriau Church, had his hat and overcoat
stolen. When he ascended the pnlpit, yes
terday morning, he caused a ripple of
laughter to spread throughout the congre
gation by the announcement of the subject
of his sermon, viz: "Thou shalt not steal."
The text was from Deuteronomy v, 19, and
the reverend gentleman said:
The commandment before us demands hon
esty and uprightness in our dealings, and vir
tues which found themselves upon that prin
ciple of human action which our Savior lays
down in the twelfth verse of the seventh chap
ter of the gospel of St. Matthew, "Whatsoever
je would that men shonld do unto you. dove
even to to them," and which he sets before us
as the sum and epitome of the Scriptures,
when he says "this is the law and the proph
ets." It is a little sinsnlar that, while I was dis
coursing to j ou last Sabbath evening upon this
principle which was against all the infractions
of the just rights of our neighbors, a couple
of young men fihould have been engaged
in violating it by the abstraction of the
great coat of our precentor, and ot tbo hat of
3 our pastor. The untoward incident has sug
gested to me that it may not be inappropriate
to take up the thread of my evening discourse
a. week ago and point out the application of
the golden rule in matters relating to proper
tv. Let me, therefore, once again, with all
earnestness, recommend to you to diligently
set the golden rule of Christian charity before
your eyes, and urge j ou never to do anj thing to
any man which, were jou in his position, you
would be inclined to resent as unjust, and to do
always that which, were you situated as your
neighbor, you would wish others to oo unto
jou. This is to act honorably and wisely. This
Is to make self,w-hich commonly is the tempter,
and incites to wrong and oppression, at once
the patron and defender of other men's rights
XMirBENT BIGHTS TO TEOrEETT.
The most obvious violation of the golden
rule of which I have been speaking is found
in the sin of theft, which is prohibited in tho
commandment before us, "Neither shalt thou
steal." This precept ot the decalogue forbids
all violations ef tho right of property directly
or indirectly. The right of property in any
object is the right of its exclusive possession
and use. Without attempting to enumerate
the theories advanced as to the foundation of
the right of property, I will content mjself
with stating, in common with the vast majority
of Christian students, that the right of property
founds itself In the will or God, the Creator of
the world and of man. It is as much a natural
instinct to acquire and hold property as it is
to breathe. The lion lights lor the possession
of the lood which he acquired in the chase; the
sparrow indignantly repels all attempts ot other
birds to rob him of the nest under the eaves,
and men sympathize with the lion and the
sparrow in their attempts to hold their own.
Dr. Holland then quoted from the distin
guished German jurist, Stahl, as follows:
Property is especially designed to enable a
man to perform his moral duties. Every man
has duties which belong to him alone ana not
to others; duties which arise out of his present
vocation and standing, especially such as be
long to his own family. Therefore he must
have what is exclusively his own. Property is
therefore not intended for mere gratification
or support, nor is it a mere objectless mastery
over things external. It is the necessary means
to enable a mau to fulfill his divinely appoint
To hold that the right of property is founded
on the law ot the land, or on any contract ex
pressed or implied among men. is to fall into
grievous misleading errors. The law of the
iand does not create the right of property; it
simply defends it. The right as a man to have
and enjoy that which in any righteous way
may become mine antedates in its origin all
kings and legislatures and senators. .
Alter reviewing the question of robbing God
bv neglecting to pay Him homage. Dr. Holland
said: It would hardly seem necessary for me
to speak of the more open forms of theft of
which the law of the land takes cognizance.
While coarse machinery of human law and
justice does its work upon these things, and
they are hung up to the scornful scrutiny and
reprobation of men before they get to the church
door, yet it is the duty of the pulpit to show
that the law of man. which condemns theft, is
the law of God also.
SEVERAL CLASSES OF THEFT.
"Thou shalt not steal" is a law which Sinai
only reiterates, and which is as old as tiro con
science of th e race. Highway robbery, burglary,
counterfeiting, the obtaining of money by false
pretenses, the fraudulent manipulation of
stocks and securities, gambling, etc.: these and
a thousand other forms of vice and crime by
which the rights of property arc invaded have
been, in different lands and ages, assailed by
Human law; but it is well to remember that,
buck of all the human legislation, has been the
mightier and more authoritative voice of God,
saying "Thou shalt not steal. '
I wish to call your attention to the violation
of the eighth commandment. I refer to the dispo
sition to make false pretense in business, where
by an inferior article which is offered for sale or
exchange is represented to be other and better
than it is. Here we are confronted by a multi
tude of articles, produced at home, which are
sold as foreign production, and the price asked
and given is determined by this fraudulent
representation. Shawls of Pans are sold as
thawls of Cashmere: wines made in this coun
try are sold as the production of France, Por
tugal and Madeira. More "French" cham
pagne is drunk In Russia, it is said, than there
is produced in all the vine-growing districts ot
France. More cigars are consumed in the
United States alone under the name ot
"Havanas" than all Cuba produces. Vast
quantities of the paper sold and made in
the United States bears the stamps of
London, or Bristol, or Belfast. There is
scarcely any limit to this kind of fraud. It
does nut appear to trouble the consciences of
some men. Worse than this is the selling of
things as sound and genuine which are un
sound and spurious, and often worthless. So
widespread is fraud in matters of trade that it
has become a legal maxim. "Let the buyer
take care of himself. He should expect to be
cheated, and should always be on bis guard.
Business is business." I beard a man say the
other day, "I must try to make the most of
w hat I have, and it is yours to try and heat me,
if you can." My inward comment upon hear
ing the colloquy was: "That is certainly a
Queer conception of business which reduces it
to the work of systematically trying to cheat
your neighbor." It is to be feared that there
are not a few who have no higher conception
of business than this.
Under the head of false pretenses comes the
adulteration of articles of food and medicine,
and of material tor clothine. London green
grocers, examined by a commission ot Parlia
ment, snowed that 6 out of every 100 packages
they had examined, were pure, or what they
were represented to be. The adulteration of
drugs has become so great that governments
have taken into their own hands the prepara
tion of medicine for their armies and navies.
The subject of gambling was also touched up
by the doctor. lie said: "Betting, which is
only another name for gambling, is stealing.
To obtain money by gamblipg is larceny, ac
cording to the Supreme Court of Massachu
setts. In New York all wagers or bets upon
any gaming or any uncertain event are pro
nounced unlawful. Similar legislation exists
in this and other States.

Just 25 lugubrious disconsolates occupied
the mourners' bench yesterday morning, and
glanced apprehensively at Justice Gripp to

At the 2 o'clock afternoon drill the officers
were ranged in line and went through a

their way with the usual admonition: "Let
no drunken man escape." He doesn't like
to see a drunken man on the Sabbath, and
an encounter means troublous times for the
A FUGITIVE CAUGHT.
Folwell, Who Fled in VVomnn's Disculsc,
Cnptnred After Two Years.
Deputy United States Marshal Chambers
brought to this city last night George Fol
well, who has been a fugitive from justice
for over two year.
His history is a most interesting one. He
is a man of pleasant address. In 1886 he
was arrested in Tennessee for collecting
illegal pension fees to the amount of several
thousand dollars. He gave a heavy bond,
and after, it is alleged, attempting to bribe
witnesses, fled in the night disguised as a
woman. He was indicted on two other
charges, but nothing was heard of him until
a short while ago in North Uast, Pa. His
last offense, it is said, was committed but a
short while after his liberation from the
He was formerly a telegraph operator.
He denies the charge against him and says
the money alleged to have been received for
securing pensions, was paid him for secur
ing a divorce. He claims to be an honest
man and to have a good record as a soldier.
He is of good family and says he was never
in the pen. He will be brought before the
Court to-day and perhaps taken to Memphis
ATTACKED THE DUKE.
Dick Swan Bndly Bnttcred Up br Three
Men on Hlnthnin Street.
Dick Swan, a young man of Carson street,
Sonthside, who is better known by the name
of "Duke," was attacked on the corner of
Bingham and South Tenth streets on Satur
day night and badly beaten.
According to a statement of the young
man's mother, Swan was on his way home
when he was met by three men on Bingham
street, who asked him where they could get
some whisky. They were shown to a place,
but were not satisfied, and started a quarrel
with the young man. He was thrown on
the ground and his face was terribly bat
The screams of Swan attracted a man to
the spot, and he, with the aid of a couple of
police officers, succeeded in arresting the
men. They were taken to the Twenty
eighth ward station house, and Magistrate
Brokaw yesterday sent them to the work
house for 30 days.
THE THIEF GOT AWAT.
Freight Cars of tho P., V. & C Found
Broken Open on the Sonthside.
Apparently a large and well-disciplined
gang of thieves has been subjecting the
freight cars of the P., V. & C. Bailroad to a
series of visits lately which invariably re
sulted in something being stolen from the
cars. About 1 o'clock yesterday morning
Officers Guenther and Burns, of the South
side police force, were attracted by some
peculiar noise and went up Seventh street
toward the railroad. There they found a
man engaged in filling a sack with what
they thought to be plunder from the freight
The man no sooner noticed the officers'
approach than he fled up the hill and escaped,
although one of the policemen fired several
shots after him.
The officers found the fellow had left two
large bags with bottles behind him, and,
upon examining the cars, they discovered
two broken open. But to what extent the
cars had been robbed the officers were not
able to determine.
TO BRING OUT A WONDER.
Tho Sonthside Boat Club's Worthy Object
Ilindered a Little.
The Southside Boat Club feels greatly
chagrined that its effort, by means of a ball
on Saturday night, should have been, as its
members say, misconstrued by the police.
The object was the worthy one of raising
funds to bring out such promising oarsmen
as Frank Hanlon and Daniel Kilt, the
former of whom, as August Kriel predicts,
"is to row under 21 minutes, if his training
facilities can be made adequate or anything
like what they shonld be." The club pro
poses to go ahead and raise funds in some
other way for the accomplishment of its

How Shippers Cheat the Common
Carriers Out of Their Profits.
WALL PAPER DESCRIBED AS IRON,
And Stuffed Birds Classed as Drjgoods to
Secure low Rates.
THE INSPECTORS SHOW UP THE ETILS
A receiving clerk and a produce merchant
were having a lively wrangle the other day
at one of the city freight yards about a con
signment of birdseed. The consignee had
been receiving large quantities of the seed
at a certain rate, but on this particular lot
it had been quietly raised. A comparison
of the weight and invoice b'llls showed that
it had been shipped as oat meal, which takes
a much lower rate. As soon as this discov
ery was made the guilty consignee suddenly
became quite suave-like and bland. He
promptly paid the excess in freight, and be
gan to talk about the weather and kindred
"When the consignee was leaving with his
bird seed, he was heard to murmur to him
self in a wrathful undertone: "The game is
up at last. Confound that Inspection Bu
reau; this is some of their work. I must
try another road to elude them."
The clerk also had his little say when the
other was ont of sight:
A VEBITABLE BEVELATION.
"Well, that mafl is a pretty Christian, any
how. For some tiiVc he has been cheating the
railroad by making false descriptions, and the
Inspection Bureau has exposed him. It is
strange, but the most honorable and conscien
tious of men in business matters will think
nothing of beating a railroad; and you would be
surprised, too, to know how much of it is done.
The bureau has unearthed some of the queer
est cases of misdescription. Just run over with
this list of corrections made for this week, and
see how the work is done.
"Iron castings take a low, special rate, and it
is a great favorite with shippers in classifying
articles. Here is a batch of wall paper that
was shipped as so much iron. All kinds of
toys, articles of hardware of fino quality,
copying presses, etc.. that take high rates are
often consigned as Iron castings. Before the
bureau was organized theso deceitful practices
were carried on extensively.
-The other day we found alotof stuffed birds
classed as drygoods. Now drygoods are in the
second and third classes, while the rate on
stuffed birds is three times the first-class rate.
In this case the railroad would have lost
heavily. One would suppose that churches
would act honorably, but not long ago we
caught a lot of fine furniture and the molding
for an altar shipped as lumber. However, this
is quite a common ruse, and our moral sensi
bilities are not so easily shocked. There Is
nothing like blunting your better nature.
EQUIVALENT TO PABALYSIS.
"The roads make a distinction between toilet
and common soaps, and yet when we find any
of the former rated as such we are tempted to
lie down and die. In such a rare emergency
our services are not needed. It Is useless to
classify glassware. The railroads tried it, but
there was only one kind shipped. Everything
in this line, from a window pane to the finest
varieties of cut glass, was shipped as tumblers.
Finally some of the glass men overdid the
thing, and glass in general was put in the third
"Big discrepancies in the weights of ship
ments are also discovered. Frequently the
weight is just twice as much as the figures in
the weieh bill. This is true, to a large extent,
of the gTain coming from the West. A strong
effort is being made to extend the jurisdiction
of the bureau. At present only freight from
the West is examined. All the high class
traffic from the East escapes, and railroad men
know that the classification is often evaded.
Trunks packed with goods take a lower rate
than empty ones. This rule is often violated
by the New York merchants. .The bureau is
doing good work, and has come to stay."
Shippers Hare Waited in Tain for o Brenk
In Freight Kates.
Said a commercial agent yesterday : "Ship
pers are slowly beginning to realize that the
railroads mean business, and there is to be
no more rate cntting. Bates to-day are
firmer than they were in January. Ship
pers have been holding off, expecting to
hear of a break at anytime, but none has
come. As soon as thev commence to un
derstand that rates will be maintained they
will begin to ship.
"The freight traffic has been light so far
this year, but not because business is dull.
Freight shipments have been piling up,
and manufacturers will soon have to move
them out for they need the room."
A BRICKBAT BATTLE
Remits in the Police Charging on a Dis
orderly nnd Rlotoni Crowd.
Quite a row ocenrred on Fountain street
yesterday afternoon which resulted in the
arrest of James Cosgrove, aged 19. He, with
a crowd of younger boys, was acting dis
orderly, and was notified by Officer Ed
Cross to .desist. Instead of doing so he
began to call the officer names and threatened
to kill him if he tried to arrest him.
Officer Haines arrived, and they charged
upon the crowd, securing Cogrove, who
fonght viciously, while the remainder of the
gang retreated a short distance and threw
bricks at the officers. After placing Cos-.
grove in the station house the officers secured
assistance and went to arrest the remainder
of the crowd, but none of them could be
