London, Oct. 17. Mr. Blaine has now been

s something strange in tho feet that all of
theso friends hovo gainod the impression
that Mr. Blalno does not desire to bo nomi
nated for the Prosidency next year.
Some of them, indeed, put it that he does
not intend to bo a candidate. If asked, how
aver, whathor thoy speak authoritivcly, those
gentiomen invariably say " no" t but still glvo
their impression with great confidence
When asked, as many of thorn had been,
whether this assumed intention of Mr.
Blaine's originates from consideration of his
health, thoy answer that suoh consideration
is imposslblo, for Mr. Blaino is in
better health and looks gayer than ho
has for ten years. Nor do they infor
that Mr. Blaino's position is based
upon any dlsoouragemcnt in the political
situation. It is woll known by all who have
talked with him that Mr. Blaino regards the
prospect of Itopubllcan success in 1888 as
inllultoly bettor than It appeared in 1884,
when the dofoat was so narrow.
I state these foots without coloring or with
out speculation thereon, further than to say
that such conclusions may bo taken with cau
tion so long as Mr. Blaine authorizes no pub
lie statement. But tho fuct remains, that all
of Mr. Blaino's friends who have been InEu
ropo thlB summer carry homo tho impression
that the Republican candidato of 1881 will
not bo in tho fiold next year.

FI00RIN0 ON TD LABOR VOTE.
President French and Henry leoro Think
the Deruocrnta Will Buffer Moat.
President Stephen B. French, of the Board
of Police, is an intenso partisan Republican,
and nover falls to score a point for his politi
cal friends when he can. To an Evenino
Wobld reporter he said yesterday:
"Tho Republicans will carry this State
this fall as suro as my name is French.
Every report received shows that the people
are ripe for a change, and the division In the
Democratic ranks by a separate labor party
will add greatly to the Republican majority."
" Whore do you place the Labor vote ?"
" Tho Labor voto in New York and Brook
lyn olone will rcooh 100,000, in my opinion,"
Mr. French said exultantly, " and that will
givo the Republicans the State."
" How much of the Labor vote will como
from the Republicans?"
" Not over 16 por cent., or 15,000, as against
85,000 drawn from tho Domoorats. I am not
prepared to say how large tho Labor, vote
will be in the State, but it will bo heavy
in all tho largo cities. Tho Prohibf.
tlon vote in this State will be about
60,000 so that It is easily seen that the bulk
of the loss will fall upon the Demoorats.
This assures the State to tho Republicans.
It will bo the first gun for 1888 and means
tho eloctlon of a Republican President. Who
our candidate will he I am not prepared to
say. but unless all signs fall James G. Blaine
will bo the man."
After this bit of political wisdom,, Mr.
French was ready to attend to police busiucss
on a strictly " non-partisan " basis.
When on Evenino Wohld reporter asked
Henry George this morning what he thought
his voto wonld bo, Mr. George pullod Out the
f250 watch voted to him at the Anti-Povcrty
air, and said that he would have to bo brief,
as ho was in an awful hurry.
" I am not a good guesser," he continued,
"but I think the lowest flguro for the
United Labor party will ho 200,000, and I
believe it will reach 800,000. Wherover I
have spoken, I have received the attention of
everybody, especially tho farmers. Tho peo

" Honry Gcorgo or Col. Fred Grant. I do

will come very largely from the Democrats."
Mr. Georgo then hurried away to catch a
train. He will speak this week at Albsny,
Poughkeopsie, Yonkors and other cities. His
debato with Mr. Shovitch will take plaoe
noxt Sunday evoning. It has been proposed
that the Anti-Povcrty Society forego its moot

in the Academy of Music. Mr. ijhevitch
favors this arrangement, and it is believed
that Mr. Georgo will.

f-r jrjr VT Pract'sd on tho other
1 fi Kj X side of the ocean. Tho
urnituro and effeots of an unfortunate ten
ant of a rear, top floor, six-story barraoks,
aro placed on the sidewalk and then carted
to the Corporation Yard, while a poor sow
ing girl who has obtained a judgment
against a dishonest and unfeeling employer
will have her decree entered in a groat big
book, and her employer will hide his indebt
edness behind a fraudulent assignment.
If thero should be any justice dispensed in
this clty.it should bo in theso oourts.where tho
poorer people havo to appeal for their rights
and their wages. They are people who know
little of the meshos of the law and who,
above all others, need the protection that tho
law gives. Tho justices of the Civil District
courts, therefore, should be men who would
recognize the right in rags as against tho
wrong In silks or broadcloth.
Thero are eleven of these petty but impor
tant tribunals scattered throughout the city,
and politics has a grip on nearly every one of
them, Tho Justice may bo kind-hearted, an
honest law-glvcr and may try to meto out
morcy with his decrees, but the foot remains
that politics is there just the samo. Tho
lowost of politicians hang around the court
rooms to rob poor people who come to ask
for justice. Clerks who owe their appoint
ment to machine influence aro over ready to
moko overcharges, while burly and greedy
city marshals, with red faces and stony
hearts, oro always in a hurry to throw tho
housohold goods of a poor widow out of
windows for non-payment of rent. It must
be said, however, that a fow of the justices
do all in their power to prevent subordinates
from oxtortlng blood-money from thoso who
enter the portals of the oourts.
At the coming election ton oivil justices
are to bo chosen. Thero will be no eleotion
in tho Tenth District, Twenty-third and
Twenty-fourth Words, as Justice Andrew
Jackson Rogers was recently elected for a
term that does not expire for somo years.
Successors aro to be elected to Civil Jnstlces
Michael Norton, Charles M. Olanoy, George
W. Parker, Alfred Steckler, John Henry
MoCorthv. William H. Kellv. Ambrose
Monoll, Frederick G. Gednoy. Henry P.
McGown and Leo O. Dessar. They ore oil
candidates for renomination and re-election,
with tho possible exception of Justice Parker,
who is aged and who fs weary of the duties oi
Thero are also hosts of candidates in each
of the judicial districts who are striving for
the justiceship. Lawyers with small proo
tioes but plenty of political influence axe the
mobt untiring in thoir efforts to be mado jus
tices of the couits of the poor. From the pres
ent appoaronoo of things the oivil justice
ships are to be raffled on in the harmony pro
ceedings between Tammany Hall and the
County Demooracy. Tho judicial districts
are for tho most part the some as tho Sens.
tonal districts. If 1 em -many Hall is awaidcd
the united nomination for Senator in a dis
trict the County Democracy will probably
noma the candidate for Civil Justice in the
same political borough,
Michaol Norton is tho present Justice of the
First District Court, which comprises the
First and Fifth Assembly districts. He was
elected as a County Democracy man, but ho
is now the Tammany Hall leader of tho Fifth
Assembly Distriot. Ho will be renominated.
Frank Fitzcorald, son of the late ex-Alderman
James Fitzgerald, is au aspirant for tho
bench. He is a law-partner of Jainos Walsh,
nephew of Worden Tom Walsh.
Tho Seoond District takes in tho Second
and Third Assembly districts, and Justice
Charles M. Clancy, Tammany Hnll, woutff
another term of six years at $6,000 por an
num. Then Warden Walsh would liko to see
his ncphow take Clancy's place. Ex.Assem
blyman James Oliver would accept any nom.
ination that he thought would result in his
being called a judge. "lam tired of being
called Jimmy' says Oliver.
The next Justice of the Third District
Uourt will probably secure Mb eleotion by a
doal within his party organization. Georgo
B. Deoue, jr.. of the Ninth Assembly District,
has beon an Assemblyman and an Alderman.
So has his father. Now, George B. Deane,
jr., is slated to succeed Justice George W.
Parker. Both are Republicans. The slate
is Fire Commissioner Oornolius Van Cott, of
the Seventh Assembly District, for Senator
in Glbbs's old hunting ground, and young
Deone, of the Ninth District, for Judge, The
Seventh and Ninth nominate the Judge, and
the Seventh, Ninth and Thirteenth the Bon
otor. The judicial district is a Republican
Tho Fourth Distriot is a large German dis
trict, whioh six years ago elected Alfred
Steokler a Justice against all machines and
combinations. It includes the Tenth and
Seventeenth wards, or tho Eighth, Tenth and
Fourteonth Assembly districts. Justice
Steokler has no opposition for re-election, ex
cept from John J. O'Brien and Polico Jus
tloe Jacob M. Patterson and the Republican
machines behind them. The independents,
various trades and workingmen's unions have
nominated Justice Steckler and he is to ro
celve the Indorsement and union nomination
from Tammany Hall and the County Demoo
racy. Police Justico Pattorson and John J.
O'Brien wMl probably run Henry 0. Botty, o
mocuine uepuuucau politician ana lawyer,
against Stockier. Bets are being made that
Steokler will havo 5,000 votes to spare after
the returns ore counted.
Thero promises to be somo fun in the Fifth
DUtrict. which is composod of the Seventh,
Eleventh and Thirteenth wards. If Senator
Edward F. Rellly, Tammany Hall, is renom
inated the Civil Justiceship, on the union
deal, will go to the Connty Democracy, John
Heury McCarthy, who now hands down de.
olsious in Clinton street, is not identified
with either organization. Ho is likely to be
shuffled out. Juror Commissioner Charles
Reilly is working to nominate his son-in-law,
Benjamin A. Douras, who is employed in the
District-Attorney's office. Congressman
Timothy J. Campbell is booking up tho
claims of Henry M. Goldfogle, while ex
Gonnty Clerk Patrick Keenan is offering
Joaepb E. Neuberger as a choice. Neuber
cer fs also a candidate for City Court. Justico
MoCarthy says that he will run independent
for re-election, and boasts that the Jefferson
clubs of the Fourth and Sixth Assembly dis
tricts will suniort htm.
The Sixth Distriot Civil Court is composed
of the Eighteenth and Twenty.first wards, or
Eleventb.SmeenJb and Eighteenth Assembly
district, William H.Kelly, present justice, fs
to receive the united Democratic nomination
for re-election. He is a member of the County
Demooracy and is xtty popular on the east
side. He spends pari of his salary every
summer in giving excursions to tho widows,
their children and tho worthy poor of the
Eighteenth and Twenty.first wards. Ha has
been a Justice for twelve yearn and none of
iiii iTtolsitfil'r"! fsfrSn Hatli-'anaail issffljsnr'
his decisions havo been reversed by the
higher courts. The Republicans are talking
of nominating Henry Kropf, who succeeded
the late Michael Oregon as tho machine boss
in tho Sixteenth District, He was a clerk in
tho low office of Assemblyman ErnestJrosby,
son of the Rov. Howard Crosby.
If Justice Ambroso Monell is not promoted
to a higher court ho nioy Btand for re-eloo-tlon.
Ho is a Tammany Hall adhoront. His
district covers a good deal of the Twentieth
and Twenty.first Assembly districts. Ex
Civil Justice J. O. Julius Langbein is hunt
ing for tho Republican nomination, and he
has the idea that bo can win if a Labor can
didate should got into tho race.
Ex-8enator Frederick S. Gibbs and his
friends have declared war against Civil
Justice Frederick G. Gedney in tho Eighth
District. They say that if Gedney Is renom
inated they will use scalping knives on eleo
tion day. The anti-Gibbs Republicans vow
by reform and duds politics that they will
slaughter any nominee brought to the front
by the wickod ex-Senator. This pretty
family quarrel in tbo G. O. P. has made
several Democrats hanker attar tho Justice
ship of tho Thirteenth and Fifteenth Assem
bly districts. Assemblyman Mulry would
take it. So would John Joralcmon. Tho
Unltod Domocratio nomination would not go
a-begging. Two Domocratio candidates ond
one Republican candidato would olect tho
It is sold that Tammouy Hall and tho
County Democracy have come to an under
standing in tho Harlem judicial district. Jus
tico Henry P. McGown, who has grown
gray on tho bench, is to retire, and ex-Assemblyman
Joseph F. Fallon, County Demoo
racy, is to secure the union prize. Assembly
man Jacob A Cantor. Tammany Hall, Is to bo
nominated for Senator as successor to Will
iam O. Traphogen. Tho obovo .combination
is thought to be very likely.
If Tammany Hall names tha Senator in the
Eloventh District the County Demooracy will
name tho candidate for Civil Justico. Leo
0. Dessar, Tammany Hall, is now Justice. It
is a new district. Justico Dessar would liko
to see tho County Democracy draw the Sena
torial nomination. Ho might then be nom
inated. The admirers of Denis A. SpelliBsy
aro pressing him for Justice. Ho is the
County Democracy chief in the Nineteenth

Suffering l"rom Nervous Prostration and
Unnblo to Do Duty.
Policeman Edward Hahn, who shot Capt.
Jack Hussey and was acquitted, has not yet
done duty in the Tromont precinct, to whioh
he was transferred when his shield was given
back to him by the Superintendent.
His work in Capt. Robbins's precinct was
to havo begun at 6 o'clock on Saturday oven
ing, but at 4.80 o'clock that afternoon Hahn
walked into the station-house and told Sergt.
F. W. Martins that he was too ill to go on
duty. Ho looked exhausted, and there Was a
suspicion of liquor about his breath accord
ing to the Sergeant, Whilo he lay on a bench
in tho roar room Police Surgeon Lucion
Damainvillo was sent for. He lives at Eighty,
fourth street and tho Western Boulevard,
ond did not reach tho etation-houso till
nearly 7 o'clock.
Ho examined Hahn and found him suffer
ing from nervous prostration, caused by long
continued mental strain. He considered
him unfit for duty and the officer was there,
fore sent to his home in East Seventy-sixth
Btreet. Dr. Domainvllle gave him a tonio
and viBited him yesterday and to-day.
Unless tho Polico Beard at to-morrow's
mooting ordors him to bo put to trial on the
old chargo of intoxication, Hahn will resumo
