what the Italians are in the habit of describing

this kind that be can hope to saxe the country
from national bankruptcy, alleviate the wide

prevent the substitution of ji republican form
of government for thal of King Humbert.

Ii la now generally under tomi thal the ??p?**ial

organising the Republican party ..f this county
has decided in fa ror of what is generally known
a*: iii" Philadelphia mel boil ..r organisation, and
xviii mai;.* a unanimous reporl in favor "f its
immediate adoption h.-r---.
The Philadelphia plan la so ratted because lt
is supposed to hare originated xxiiii the Repub?
licans of the Pennsylvania inotremits. The
supposition is Incorrect. Tbe party len l"*rs In
the Quaker City hare carried it onl xx it li acme

ernment. The idea is anything but new. It
luis 1.ti in operation in ihi* and other cities
from tinic to tim" for half a century. When the
County 1 lolll'unify Started, BbOUt a dozell Veil rs
a*_n. it WM lin- distinctive . bancterlstlc nf that
lindy's organization, and rontlnned to be
throughout the erentful existence of lhal fa
mons opponent <>f the Wigwam. Ii la hardly ncc
senary, therefore, lo go to Philadelphia lo studt
tbe practical workings <>f lhe proposed acbeme;
iiiey are familiar lo erery one conn rsanl arith
the history of the " Conotli - '
As ai pr.?.-ni constituted, tho Republican ar
ganlxation lure. iik>- Tammany Hull, tak.* the
Assembly dlstrlci as ii* basis ..f operation, and
works downward and upward from lt; down
ward through the election precinct captains,
and upward to tbe County and Executlre com?
mittees through th.- del.-.:i.s to those bodies
The Philadelphia plan begins xviih ih" election
precincts or roting divisions, and regarda these
as the basis ami aoorce nf all primary action.
Tbe voters in each precinct med al a stated
time and form local aasoclatlon*. These local
associations elect delegates directly lo till nom?
inating cliVi-lllioIis. TWO lllc|nb?TS gie elected
to represent tin- precinct in what ls known Jis
the Ward or Assembly l>is:ri.t Rxecutlre Com
mlttee. Prom this committee one member is
chosen to repreaeul tbe ward in the central
body, known as the Campaign Committee, and
in this body ls lodged the supreme power of tbe
entire orgnnhmtlon. Tbeoretteatty, the Phlla
I. Ipliia plan is more in keeping xvitli Ibe spirit
of a democratic form of gorernmeut than the
one employed lure at present, bul experience
i'i tliis city waa ll"' very favorable to it. Tho
County Ii-iii'i. racy tried most persistently t,.
.any ii ont, but as in prerentlng bosses and
ringa or cb?cklng close corporation tendencies
ii did not sin-ceil, in autocratic way and
absolute disregard oi healthy public sentiment
Ibe County Democracy anrpasaed Tammany,
timi in conaequence fell from power. Keren
yeara ago it xvas in control of Ibe mnnkipol
government; today it is merely a nani" iu
Tba i'i**n Ibal all Ihe roten la any election
precinct wonk] come together lo lorin and
maintain a local aasociatlon xvas not reallied.
The reason is obrious. in ti great cosmopolitan
city like .ww l'ork few voters in an eleetlon
precinct, die boundaries of wblcta gre liable lo
be Changed every y.-ar by tile Police I 'olillllls
aloners, know one ?notber. lt la difttcull '<? gel
them together. The beembop is about ibe only
public place of ii.Un*-', and tbe better ciaaa
of good cltlaena do nol care io meei Ibere.
As political gattaeringa at prirate honaea are
seldom desired, the result followed thal Ine
entire work xxas left to the frequenter* of the
taloona, and i" the men who are in polities for
Ihelr own adrantage. As an actual fact, for
yeara before th" County Democracy passed
away, its organisation In moal of the election
precincts xvas a sham. Instead Of genuine local
a- "elation in euch precinct, the actual work was
confined lo j few beelen,whokiiewnolnw bul
the word of the bosses.-Tin- experience of tbs
County Democracy ls said to bare been repented
in Philadelphia, ami faithful member* of the
party there, men who are not associated xvith
the ring, are by no means enthusiastic orer the
state of the organisation in thnt city. We do
not aaautne from this, bowerer, lhal the pian

MISTAKES Mihi: Bl Till: POLICE
The Police Department of this (itv is not
strengthening Itself in the eoufldcnre ami good
will of intelligent and high-minded people. In
fact it is nol too much lo ny that distrust in
foe good faith and sincerity of certain police
otliciais is gaining ground daily. Tile recent
tranofera of captains, following hard upon tin*
Indictment of Derery, had an unpleasant look.
Captain Devery waa Indicted for Calling to sup?
press vicious resort* in his precinct after lu* hnd
re ci veil full Information of tb- existence of
such resorts. |t is known that other police
captains 'nix** been suspiciously sympathetic iii
their leniency toward vicious resorts, and little
doubt exist* linn these captain* deserve Indict?
ment aa fully aa Captain Devery. Thc trans?
fer* of .-.iii-ii captains mail.' it tar more difficult
lo obtain overwliclniimr exideitce against them
to present to tin- timmi Jury. Waa that the
reason why tbe transfer* were made? These
transfer* were not judicious, and are not ea*y
of defense or CSCU* '.
Certain pollei*- official* and ile ir nympotbteera
and apologist* appear io think lluil the people
ef New-York bare no intelligence and no com?
mon sense. Tiley aie mistaken. Intelligent
citizen* tire now ronrlnccd thal it is the prac?
tice "f keepera of ga raiding bella, of dives,
.md of disorderly houses to pay stated sums for
"prob* lion." They feel sure that a targe abarn
of dis blackmail rnrictaea Tammany Hall, and
they do not doubt thal a portion of it sticks to
certain police lingera <>n its way to Tammany
pocket*. They know thal a part of the potten
force baa been ahamefully misused by Tam?
many Hall to increase the rote of its candi?
dates aud io |.*-.*n the vote of its opponents.
The .vili.-n.e thal certain ?patrolmen, rounda
ii.< a, -.ii.'.ants ami captains have broken tlie
law ami disgraced tneraaelee* by partisan ef?
forts for Tammany candidate* in recenl cam?
paign* and ai iceni election* la unanswerable.
How, then, can tbe people of New York trust the
Police Department nnreaerredlyl Tbe force is

The plethora of money leads b*?-w*r* onog

of interest on deposits by Interior banka. The

at the head of many banks which adhere to
this practice would do so If they found any
money in lt. It ls stated that the return of
money from the country to this centre has
ceased, which was not the fact last week, since
the ascertained net receipts from the Interior
by New-Tork banks amounted to J.', 100.000 for

both failing off thus far thli month, and the
state of trade in staple products ls not highly
