Apropos of the Cleary trial Colonel Pellows

The petition prescnled to the Excise Com

cent years, and probubly without prcccdcnt in
the city's hietxiry. It was signcd by 2,500
well-knowa citizens, and beaought the Coin
mis-ioneis to limit tho number of liquor li?
cense* of all kinds to 8,500. Tw<;nty-iive
thousand signatum*, it ie said, coirW baVto been
obtained a? e-iily as twenty-five hundred. This
is precisclj the aort of moTal support _hat the
present Exctoe Board deserro in their effortsi
to restrfot the liquor trafllc. There is so much
4|iu?ra brouo-fc ?a t-sm in favor ?? ? oon
trary courie that an emphatic expresmon on
the side of temperance and virtue, while per
baps not needed, must havo been both gratify
ing and encouraging.
The Yantic's exporience with yellow fever
is very like that of the Boston. There aro
now three case* on board the Yantic, which
reaohed here late ot: Thursday. and one of the
victiins, Lieutenant Miles, is in a precariotis
condition. Tho other two patients are likely
to recover, and it is believed that thoro is little
probability that any one else on board will bo
attacked. Ono death oocurred durlng the voy
'age from Hayti to New-York. How the fever
was eontracted if* a mysrtery, as no direct ex
posuro is known to have taken place. Tho
outbreak of the disease tends to conflrm tho
prevalent belief that when yellow* fever once
occurs on a wooden vofoel the germo can never
be effectually eradicated.

The latest rcports show that the flrst storios
spread abroad in regard to the dostructive work
of the tornado at Eeading were soriously ox
aggeratod. In tho confusion and alarin inci
dent to the collapso of the silk-mill it waa
thought tihat fifty or sixty persons had been
buricd in the ruins. This number was reduced
ix> thirty-three ou Thursday, and y.stoaday's
invostigations resulted in showing that prob?
ably no MKvre than seventoen 1 ive? were lost.
Kven at that the calamity ll sad enough, but
it loses some of its horrors in tho light of theso
developmentg. Nothing has yet been made
known that tends to provc that the collapse
was due to any weak new in tho building itielf.
MUST THERE BE AX EXTRA SESSIOXT
The poesibility that Goneral Harrison will
call an extra session of Congress soon after his
inauguration is beconring a topic of consider
able interest to tho country and of auxious
discussion among Senatora and Roprcaonta
tives. Tho Presidcnt-olect recently declined
to make a positivo ongagement to be in Brook?
lyn on Decoration Day, remarking that public
nccessity might detain him in Washington.
Supposring his moanitig to have been that Con?
gress niight be in session on May 30, it doea
not follow that General Harrison is inclined
to call an extra session. Like the rest of the
country, ho peroeives that an imperative con
tingency may ariso, but his present feeling on
tho subject cannot bo deduced from his reply
to tho Brooklyn dolegatiou.
Interviows with members of both houses of
Congress, fairly NfMMO-lf the g-'neral senti?
ment of Bepublicans in each, are printajd on
another page. A large pro>ortion of I
wbose views ai*o quotod either expeet or de
sire an extra &e*sion, or both expeet and d
one, while only a small minority ncither wish
nor expeet one to be ealled. Thero MflflM
therefore, among Kopublicans in tho present
Congress to be a docided prepoiiderance of be?
lief that an extra session is probable, an.l |xt
haps about an evon division of oi'inioti as to
its desirability. Botwoon now and Marvh 4
oonclusive reasons may appear on either side of
the qurstion. The Deiuocrats in the Houso,
possibly with a definito intention. but more
probably under the fatuous promptings of orig
inal sin, are appaiontly doing all in their powcr
to bring on the requisite flOMrflfl?F7i but it Is
yot tor. early to conclude that the em.-tgency
Siiice the foundation of the Government C?.n
p?H has met only nino times in the flrst Mv
months of a new Administration ; onl.y cight
of these havo been extra sossions, properly
speaking, and only seven of them furnlah a
real comparison. Thu session which began on
March 4, 1869, the day of Grant's finrt in?
auguration, was held under a law passed tn
thwart the supposed piirposes of President
Johnson, and soon aftorward repealed, as was
the session which began two years beforo on
tho same dato. Following Gariield's death
General Arthur ealled CoDgress togcther to
settle the Presidontial suocession, but this is
not a parallel case. Tho seven oxtra s<*
whi h supply a reasonabio analog.y were ealled
as follows: March 4, 17H0, to set the Gov
crnment in motion ; May 15, 17 97, in rcsponso
to French thrcats; May 2:2, 1B09, in IWO
tion with an r.xpected adjustment of our r- la
tions with Great Britain ; May 24. 1*13, dur
ing the war of 1812; Soutombcr 4, 1H37, to
meet the financtal crisis; May 31, 1841, to
apply the Whig policy and principlr-s to tho
monetary situation, and July 4, 1801, to pro
vide for tho defeDce of the Tnion. It is a
curioiis faot that the closest analogy is fur
nished by tho session of 1841. which waa
ealled by General Harrison's graudfather,
though Congress did not a?sembio until aftor
his death. General Gariiold seriously con
sddered the necewiiiy of an extra hossion to
pass a funding bil), but it was linally avoided.
Every President must dotormino for himsclf
whether or not the grave emcrgen.y contem
plated by the Constitution has arison, and aot
accoidingly, but tho objootions to an extra
session at tho beginning of an Administration
aro cbvious. A new Executive may roason
ably ask at the outset for as great relief as
possible from the burdens of goveniment, for
timo to lay tho framework of his policy and to
concert measures for tho futuie a<?ion of Con?
gress, and to be spared while he can the onset
< f offlccseekers. Of the last there will bo moro
than onough in any case, but in the absenee of
Congressrnon their constituents are less lil<e!y
to besicgo the capital. It is possible, and if
Democrats continue in their pre#cnt courso it
may even become probable, that General Har?
rison will think it his duty to assomble Con
gress in extra seasion soon after March 4, but
perhaps thero is yot timo to divert what may
.become a necessary evi!.

Tho secrats of the Administration's policy
in Bohring Sea form an amazing chapter of
diplomatic history. Tho Pnsident parlly dis
closed one of these mysteries when be fore
shadowed >'n his last Message an agroemont of
the maritime Powers for the protection of the,
fur-seal iisheries. Sonator Hoar unmasked an?
other when ho introduced a resolutiori calling
for the correspondenee on this quostion, and
commented on tho unjust disci inii nat ion against
American vessels iu those waters. Tho ad
mission of Captain Shepard in reply to an
adroit question from Mr. Dingley that confi
dential orders had been roeeived by the offloers
of the revenue cutters before sailing for Alaska
last season lays bare Mothfl. of these secrets.
A brief revlew of tho Administration's diplo?
matic adventures in this field will throw ad
ditional light on a dark subject
In. July and August, 18$tl, three Brilisb
sealors were sei/.i-d. in Behring Sea in aceonl
mWtt Wlth the policy paiwei bj jiicviotis Ad
ministiations. Prcceedings based upon th ?
right of oxclusive jurudu'tiou conferred by the
Treaty of Purchase and thfl Iievised Statutes
were begun in the United States couil at Sitka,
and the vessels were condemned in Ociober and
ordered to to be sold. Late in January, 1887,
the vessels were released by the Government.
This sudden reversal of policy was haiied with
sat?faction in Canada as a timely aurrender of
txaaty, righta to tireat Britaan, bat waa e?_
demned by The Tbibune ar.d other American
Journals as involving a ronunciation of title to
Behring Sea. Canadian poachers swarmed in
tlw.se waters when the scason opened, and con
fidently expetted to enjoy immunity from nii
leatation. After a protractcd deadlock between
tho Stato and Treasury dcpartments tho ,,.
signed by Secretary Shernian during hi*
of offlce wore renewed, and Captains Shrpard
and Healy captured during July and Alfast
sevon British and irino American vossels Th.,
owners were prosecuted in the United Statcs
courts, the vcssols wero condemned and tho
cargoes confiscated. The Administrat.on had
start^d on the right track. then bad swervcd
from it and iinally bad returned to ^
At the opening of tho scason ?of 1888 ttio
samo orders which had been acted upon in
1887 were publicly issued; but when tho two
revenue cutters wero on the eve of sailing from
San Francisco they received from a special
BtMenfe* sealed instructions marked 'con
lidential and not to bo opened until flfty miles
at sea." Those instructions when opened
provcd to be in direct conllict with the orders
given during the previous season. The oflicers
vrere directed to exempt British vessols found
cuteido of tho three-milo limit from tho con
sequonces of illegal sealing. It b told
that on the very day when thusc socret in?
structions wero dispatched from Wivshington
tho M-taa.il were privately tclegrapbed to \ i<
toria; that a little st-eamer started at onoo f..r
Oonga. where a lleet of thirteon British sailing
craft lay at ai.rhor; and that all these |wdl
til'for the sealing-grounds and pMod their
trado for fovoral months under the eyes of
Obpta-tf >hepard and Healy. The Canadian
fmukmt wero not only secured against soi/iin
by tho revenue cutters Rush and Bear, but
were also relievcd from harassing compntition
of American Bealers, who had not been in
forined in advance of tho chaugc of Govorn
ment poliey. Thcao allegations bear out Son
ator Hoai's complaint of di?criminiition against
Now what was tho Administration's motive
in reversing its policy last spring? Tho I're.si
dent's reference to the fur-seal agreoment prob
ably explains it. Secretary Bayard, who in
January, 1887, had cffected the rcleaso cf the
three sea'crs on tho ground that tho claim of
t v<-liMve jurisdirtir.il in Behring Sea was em
barrassing him in tho North Atlantic fisherios
lugotiatiotis, was bent upon making a new
, in April. 18S8. Ho had taken sfeps to
proposw to tho maritime F'owers an intorna
tional "close-time" agrecment for tho protcc
t-uri of tho fur-.senl lisheries. and he wanted
a clear iield for his diplomacy. Seizuivs of

? Inv-cstments" is the .taking term used by
Mayor Chapin in reference to the proposed ex
penditure of $8,000,000 for public improvements
ln Brooklyn. " Profttable, remunerative, imper
ative investments," be says. Nobody should
be, probably nobody will be, deceived by this
t;iinly choscn and ccgaging phraseology. When
a mnn mnkes an investment, if he is pnident, ho
Jnquires carefully as to tho charscter of the en
terprise he contemplates putting his money in; he
wants to know the standlng of tht: men engaged in
ir; ho wishes to satlsfy himself in regard to the
prospect of gcttfrig a fair return. If ther; is a
probabillty that his money will be lost or stolen,
bc flghts shy U investinij it. If the men ut. tbe
hend of the concern or undcrtaking are not noted
for rospectability or responsihilitj-, that is usually
enough for Um. Why should not a great cily
talio the ssme pains in the m?tter of invest
monts? Can any one give nssurance that tho
miliions which Mf. Chnpin wishes Brooklyn to
spend, and which could be used to the ejty's in
estimnblo advnntage, will be bonestly spent ? In
tho hands of the Democratic gang they certainly
would not bo. Important as tlie improvements
are, and advantsgeous as they woukl undoubt
edly be, they are not so prcssing that they can?
not be postponed, in part, at least, until such as
stirnnce is forthcomlng. It ncver can be given
so long as Brooklyn is in the hnnds of the grasp
ing Democratic ring.
