.1//.*. i ROWERS HEP ELATION.
I; is a marvel lhat .Mr. Croker round lime
ti attend to al! the busings that was laid be?
loit* him on th" lirst day after his return from
ihe South. His travels 11111*; have invigorated
him greatly, ami this swill recuperation shows
ih..1 Ins constitution is till sound. We should
-ay thai lhere was no good rcasofl wh.v Mr.
Ciokei'. ba:lin;; accidents, should nit retain
full pusses-don of all his facilities for ai kail
twenty-live years, As we have remarked, he
was excessively biiaj o,i Thursday, and nearly
everything which engaged his lime and atten?
tion was of a lather painful and depressing
nature. Bul yt t Mr. Croker'a spirits were tian
quil. of course tiny were nu! bigb; nobody
naid have expected him lo execute a skill
dance; indeed, ii is reported lhat several sub*
chieftains were in an excessively nervous eon*
iliii'iii until they ascertained which way thc
wind was blowing willi "the old man."
Bul if s!ich anxieties prevailed at headquar?
ters they weir, needless. Mr. Croker began tho
more important labors of the .lay by lunching
willi Lieutenant-G ovei nor Sheehan. Now. thai
could not have been exactly an hilarious re?
past, after what has lately been occurring at
Albany, liven if we take into accounl the
acquittal <;f one of the Lieutenant-ti overnor'a
pel rascals at Buffalo, wc are forced to believe
that this midday meal at the Hoffman House
was sj, |;|ied e'er with the pale cast of thought.
Nevertheless, Mr. Croker waa not merely s?
rene but genial when he appeared in Tammany
Hail later in ihe ali tnooa. In fact, beseemed
to those who waited upon him io have dis?
covered now traits duiiug his absence. He
wa* at tunes almost facetious, and il was de?
lightful !:.*'(> hew his mood warmed eveiyb dy
iu tbs room. Ac olding t ? om- observing con?
temporary, "The New-York Times,*' Commis?
sioner Brennan .ame in lo iking as dark and
gloomy as any one of out main thoroughfares.
"Youie doing well. Tom." said .Mr. Croker,
and the glow which suttus.1i thc Commissioner's
bosom forthwith would have stetted 1,000
cubic yards of snow.
We do not suppose thal Mr. Croker re?
turned in dense ignorance of reoeni
events at tho Capital, but yet a
full interchange of views with Messrs.
Sheehan, Cantor and Sulser was not a mailer
io be hurried, and it was surprising to bear
him talk about his trip as if there was nothing
els.* on his mind?how he had not entered int *
a partnership with Mr. Plagler, nor bought a
racetrack, nor founded a church ar college
Hm varied as was iho business which be di*
patched, and interesting as were Uie personal?
ities and faeeiiae which diversified it, by all
odds the most striking and important thing
done by Mr. Croker on Thursday la*t wa* his
ratification of Mr. Cleveland's Cabinet. Noi
because ii had been supposed iliat he would
arise and curse the next President's official
family, but because iu speaking will of th* in
be t<*ok occasion to explain that the,, wera
selected on the same principle which is applied
in the appointment ol mir municipal function*
aries. '"\\> select them," said Mr. Croker,
"because we think their appointments aie f,,i
the best interests of Ihe community.'1 As*
(.tiredly, with all the flood of light thal his
been poured upon the administration of our
local afTairs, ibis fact was never known be?
fore, and ihe suddenness of bs communication
is startling, lt explains a greal many ihmgs.
Appointment- like those of Scannell and Koch
and Haly and Divver and Grady have been
mysteries heretofore. Now ihey aro perfect!,,
intelligible. How simple it is now lhal we
have the (lew! The best mt rests of the citv
demanded them. Thal is all.
Thursday waa a great day foi- a great many
pei sun?lui- Mr. Croker and tiie Lieutenant
liovernor, and tho Speaker .d' the Aaaemhly
and "Tom*' Brennan, and incidentally foi Mr.
Cleveland, but Ural of all foi th** <iiy ol New
York, which has learned in the most, unex?
pected manner jn-t how it has rome to beau
object-lesson in municipal government.
THE Ol.0 HAM) AT HORE.
The old Parliamentary Hand has kepi tho
Home l!ule forces well iu hand since Ile gill?
er.il elections. Ordinarily there is a reaction
against tlio Govctnmcni in 'lie eailiost by
elections. I.ibetal majorities wei" reduced in
several boroughs aad districts dining (he vx
months following the elections, and on*' seal
was losi. This was ai Huddersfield, where tbe
Pnionists, with the aid ol ihe Labor vole, over
tame a majority of over 2B0. A fortnight ago
lins loss was oil set by a Liberal victoiy ai
Walsall. This wis followed by another si
Hexham, where (here was a train ol' over 300
vole*. Yesterday ihe Liberals recaptured
Cireneester alter a pion) determined struggle,
so thai in a divinion Mr. Gladstone can nov.
count on a majiiiiy laigtr by four votes than
when the general elections were completed.
An elm tion was als 1 held yesterday in Uate
h.-ad. where the Liberal miwun waa increased
nearly 800. Moreover, in ail the divisions in
Parliament ihe Govenunent's majorities were
large, ranging from 107 io #0. Yesterday's
contests marked virtually the " lirst blood*'
since the inti duct ion of the Home-Hule bill.
Mr. Gladstone bal al>o succeeded in COR*
dilating one of the most unmanageable groups
of supporters by the introduction of a Welsh
Disestablishment bill, which has been road for
the lust time and will have piec-denee in legis
j lation after the Home Rule bill. The Welsh
1 Liberals, under the leadership of Mr. George,
have shawn signs of insubordination, anti have
united in a caucus tn force then measure upon
thi Goveinnniiis attention. Mi. Asquith's
bill, while liol n drastic measure. i* a practical
I slep in th*- direction of the disendowinetit and
disestablishment ol th'' Knglish Church in a
section of the I'nited Kingdom where barely
a fourth of the population is iu sympathy with
ir. While Scotch disestablishment will be de?
ferred by il, the order of procedure is natural.
These BMOBUrea are complex and intricate, and
may bo more conveniently and intelligently
taken up iiivei-ely iu tho older of iinpoitanee.
Welsh dinstsbliihmrnt will naturally facili
tate Scotch dhwitaWishmeni ?? and in the near
future, under anothei Parliament, the ll rig! i-h
Church question will inevitably be settled on
similar Inn's, allin.ugh it will be a most diffl
cult legislative undertaking.
This Welsh legislation will be Bsefitl for
Mr. Gladstone's purposes, noi merely because
it will steady tbe votes ol .. discontented Had
icil group, but mainly becmtse it will coneiliale
his Nonconformist supporters during a crisis
when the full force of Protestant agitation
against the Home Rule bill will be fell fr in
I'lster. The sympathies ol large bodies of
Liberal voters will naturally l?e excited by
Ihe appeals t-> be ni.i-j.- from Ibal qnartei of
(he island t<> i?? Jiv;*? 11s feeling, Something i*
required lo reconcile Noniimf umist*" aad Had
kal* to changes in Ireland which arc strenu?
ously opposed by Pistol Protestants! and 'his
practical evidence tbat disestablishment, after
being deferred foi a generation after the lush
act. is at last t i be bi mghl forward will serve
the purpose. Mr. Gladsl me is shrewdly cal?
culating thc chances ol his Home Ride bill and
forecasting ni" bin*1 * I public opinion, lina;
as ;i statesman, be bas ii ? s*.i|s . ioi a* a tactician
in Cnglish politics. While already committing
the Liberal party t * a Digestablishmoni policy.
which will ultimately embrai i ScotlaBd aad
Kn gland, he ia also alive lo the ndvantagea to
be derived from au impending agil it ion against
the legislative powers of the House of Lords.
Indeed, (hero is no stranger phenomenon iu
English history than (heevolution ol thi-. great
niau's political opinions throughout his long
career. Entering Parliamenl sixty years ggu
as g T iv of the Ton's, ho has become Ihe
tribune of tbe English dcmocracji and a cham?
pion of one radical and progressive cause alie;
another. 'Ihe dominant ideas ol Iii" lime have
.changed decade alter decade, and he has
changed with them, ah-ays allowing hi* con?
victions te cany him where they would, and
never alarmed or abashed by h:s departures
from earlier positions. V* t ail the great incas
mes which be has advocated?even Ihe preseni
Home bule bill?have b, mc dist ind traces of
that conservatism which was in his lirst elec?
tion address and in his bio xl.
