ttBCinOCITT WITH XEWFOUXULAXD.
The pleasing and not unexi<ected announce
ment is made that the Secretary of State and
the Bntifch Atnbatssador at Washington have, iv
behalf of their respective governments, conclud
ed s treaty providing for reciprocity ltetween the
I'nited Statw*, and Newfoundland. The text of
the treaty is not yet revealed, but it is under
stood that it is not general in terms, but ap
plies ohiefly if not exclusively to lish and bait.
In that respect It is probably much like the
«-onverition which Mr. Blame Ticgotiated some
years ago. and which unfortunately failed to
receive British approval. It has been cpigram
matlrally described as a * free tish. free bait"
treaty, and that description may as well stand.
It is sufficiently accurate, and it sets forth seme
•if the conspicuous merits of the measure. The
opening of American markets to Newfoundland
tlt-li may not greatly matter to us. It will prob
atily not disturb our own tishing industries, and
it may not chum* any |»erce|»t.ihle change in the
retail fish market. It ■will, however, mean a
£<>od de«l i<> Newfoundland, not only for theen
larged market here, but also— and perhaps
<'hiefly-for the levwagc thus supplied in deal
ing with other markets. On the other hand, the
opening of the Newfoundland bait market freely
t«. I'nited Stute* fishermen will be a great
boon to our fisheries, and a less but still consld
sjsjMf one to Newfoundland itself. Surely, a
bargain whii-h is advantageous to both parties
i*. to b«> regarded with deep satisfaction.
There should be no doubt of the ratification of
eu<*h « convention by both tbe governments con
cerned. The only opposition to it, if any there
i«. will be from a third party, intent upon play
ing the role of the dog in the manger. It was
thus that Mr. Blaint'e treaty was defeated.
Newfoundland wanted it, the United States
wanted it. and Great Britain had no objection
to it. Bet Canada strenuously— not to say ob
streperously—objected to it, and Canadian in
fluences were particularly strong at Weetinin
»tf>r at that time. Tbe grounds of Canada's
objection were chiefly two. One was that the
treaty would make Newfoundland prosperous
and independent, and therefore indifferent If
not hostile to Canadian annexation schemes.
The other mas that it would make the United
States independent of Canada In the fish
eries, and thsrsfort deprlre Canada of a power
ful lever in her labors to secure trade favors
from the United States. What Canada wanted
was that the fisheries question should be left in
such a shape that she could use it as a club
■Bjsjr thp beads of both Newfoundland and the
I.'nltod State*, to force the one Into Joining the
I'omlnion on tbe Dominion's terms, and to force
the other into opening its markets to Canada as
it 4*«* to Its own States. w
That Canadian demand was granted st that
Utne. Th* results were that Newfoundland suf
farai heavy loss, tbe United States waa sub
. Jrcl'il to some • •; anrc. and Canada gained
I absolutely nothing. Those facts are doubtless
understood and appreciated now. at Westmin
ster as well as at Ottawa. It reems doubtful,
therefore, whether the Dominion Government
will again go to tbe extreme of protesting
against tbe treaty. It could not do so with any
grace, since it has utterly failed to justify its
former protest. Not many weeks ago an effort,
which at one time seemed hopeful, was made
to get Newfoundland annexed to the Dominion,
but It failed. Now the best thing that can be
done for both the British colonies of North
America is for the one to keep hands off the
affairs of the other. By so doing Canada will
lose nothing, and may gain something, while
Newfoundland will certainly gain much.
A QFESTIOS OF HIGH A\D LOW.
When was It discovered by Ilorgan & Slat
tery. or whoever now Instructs Tammany office
holders in the mysteries of architecture, that a
two story nuilding is inherently lacking in dig
nity and beauty? The Postoffice Department
wants for the proposed uptown postoffice a large
floor space and the cre.atest possible amount of
light and air. It is believed that a structure not
more than two stories high will be most con
venient for the transaction of business. It is
caid. however, that the New-York Congressmen
will oppose this plan, and "insist on the erection
of a more monumental structure."
A monumental structure is well enough in its
way. Cerininly. the new postofflce. whether
high or low, large or small, should he designed
by a competent architect who would produce
an artistically creditable structure which would
adorn and not disfigure the city. There Is no
reason, however, why a building should be a
skyscraper to t»e monumental, or built of gigan
tic granite blocks, hewn out and elaborately
carved at great expense. in order io be artistic.
One of the most difficult of architectural prob
lems Is the modern high building. Some of the
finest structures In the world are low and un
adorned. A plain brick facade designed by a
master is more beautiful and Impressive than
a riot of architectural luxury. One of the most
beautiful and even monumental buildings In
New-York is the City Hall. It has two stories.
Perhaps that fact accounts for the Tammany
dislike for the old building and that desire to
replace It wiih a "monument," which the people
of New-York have no long had to be on their
guard against. Madison Square Garden is an
adornment to the city of which Its citizens are
proud. It is. however, large and low, much as
the postoffice officials wish their new workshop
to be. The Herald Building, likewise, has been
much admired, and it has only two stories. In
fact, moderation in height is coming to be a dis
tinction. Even in the Wall Street district,
where land brings fabulous sums, a banking
house seeks prestige by erecting, not a eky
seraper, but a low, handsome building for its
own exclusive use.
Tin? new postofllce will be devoted entirely to
the bSMtnasa of handling mail, and hhould be
adapted frankly to Us purpose. There is no
practical sen*e in adding stories which are not
needed, nor is there any artistic end to be gained
by so doing. There should not be the slightest
difficulty about putting up a simple, low, Inex
pensive postofllce, of such good proportion and
composition as to be far more of an artistic
treasure, far more truly "monumental." than
the hu^e. extravagant piles that are too com
monly thought appropriate for public buildings.
THE KAIZER IX EXOLAXD.
1 here is a striking contrast between the of
ficial and the popular attitude in England
toward the imperial visitor who yesterday
lauded at Port Victoria. Officially the Kaiser
is received with the utmost cordiality and
splendor. But on the part of the public he is
undeniably regarded with some distrust, if not
with actual aversion. By the public we do not
mean the mob of London, nor even the pro
verbial "man in the street." Their lack of
cordiality toward the Kaiser is obvious, but it
is not of prime significance, because it may
have no better basis than the longshoreman's
desire to ' "cave a 'alf brick" at every man
whom he suspected of being a foreigner. What
is incomparably more significant and. we fear,
ominous, is that such aversion to the Cerman
Kmperor is shared and expressed by Arnolds
•saving remnant" of men of light and leading.
.Men who are conspicuously well informed,
thoughtful, discreet, and. above all, temperate
in their expressions oj sentiment, are largely
antagonistic to (icrmany, and are not only un
sympathetic but actually antipathetic toward
the Emperor. It was only the other day. for
.example, that The Spectator," of London, a
journal distinguished for clarity of thought and
reasonableness of temper, pictured the German
Kmperor as j.atting the British bulldog <.n the
head and feeding him sweet biscuits, while his
retainers in the background are preparing sticks
and chains with which to subdue and fetter
the same bulldog when the proper time comes
to wit, the time when they are strong enough
to do it. That metaphor, we are afraid, ex
presses a pretty general British view, so that
Englishmen are largely regarding the Kaiser's
present visit as merely another move in the
head patting and biscuit offering game.
For the existence of this view there is beyond
doubt some reason. We need not go back to
the Emperor's early talk about Pickelhaube and
Red Breeches and the Modern Carthage, in
the last year or two the popular and ofttcial
noj imperial tone" In Germany has beta dis
tinctly meuaciug toward <Jreat Britain. A <Jer
man Minister has not hesitated to inveigh in
teuii»erately against the British army, and one
of the foremost Parliamentary leaders of the
National Liberal party recently Intimated in
the most direct manner that the chief object of
German naval expansion was to place the em
pire in a condition in which it might safely
adopt a hostile policy toward Great Britain.
Ministry and Reichstag have echoed with such
sentiments, while as for the press, its anlmosity
toward <Jreat Britain has long been notorious.
It is possible that Englishmen take these things
100 seriously. They are inclined to take most
things seriously. But then. QsfHHij is a prac
tical nation, whose sayings and doings are
generally to be taken seriously. The feeling of
distrust toward Germany, therefore, whether
well or ill founded, is not unnatural nor un
reasonable. It Is not to be disposed of either
by pooh-poohing it or by denouncing it. Neither
will it be obliterated by any ceremonial en
thusiasm which may. be aroused by the pomp
and circumstance of an Imperial visit. It Ik to
be dealt with only by means of arguments and
From a removed and impartial point of view
it scarcely seems possible that Germany's aims
are as intensely and malignantly anti-British
as some Englishmen have supposed. That is
because there seems to be no good reason why
they should be. Germans are a practical peo
ple, and they do not adopt policies upon the
basis of mere whims or sentiments. They are
moved at present by two major motives. One
Is to safeguard the empire against militant
foes. The other is to extend the foreign mar
kets for the products of German industry. Now.
neither of the** logically demands hostility
toward Great Britain. The latter will cer
taiuly never attack nor challenge the integrity
of the German Empire, nor even oppose the
territorial exteuslon thereof- *. witness British
acquiescence in German expansion in Asia. In
Africa and In the islands of the sea. Germany

one who is not and will not be her foe. To
shape her policy toward a war with Great
Britain would be to court unnecessary peril,
from Great Britain's potential allies, and from
the opportunity which suoh a conflict would
afford to oth."r lowers to strike for their own
sides. Nor is hostility to Great Britain neces
sary or desirable for the extension of German
commerce. German traders could not possibly
be more free than they are to-day to do busi
ness in all i»art« of the world, and especially
in all parts of the British Empire. It is be
cause of this lack of adequate motive for Ger
man hostility to Great Britain that we are In
clined to think anefa hostility does not exist to
anything like su~h an extent as some Germans
have made it appear and as some Englishmen
have believed. That the Kaiser's present visit
to Englnnd is meant by him to resemble the
meetinp of -lonb and Amasa is simply not to be
for a moment credited.
iLBAXY REDEEM EH.
"Albany County Republican by about 6,5<X>."
When this report was read in a public place
on election night one elderly man in the crowd
said: "What wooM Tom Mulball say to that?"
Only the men who were familiar with Albany
a quarter of a century aco and who knew the
method!* of the Democratic party there at that
time could appreciate the remark. Albany
was at one time the ballot box stuffers' para
dise. In those dnys men boasted of their ability
to "fix" elections, and in many parts of the city
it was Impossible to secure a fair count.
The first Albany ballot manipulators were
the men who were appointed by the Governor
to take the vote of tho soldiers in the Army of
the Potomac. They went to the front, took
the vote and **tix**«l" ii for the Democratic
ticket. The fraud was discovered, and the
three Democratic commissioner* were sent to
prison. But the circumstance showed the Al
bany Democrats what eoold b<> done in the way
of ti\inc ballots, and for year-; ballot l»>x stuff
ing was the order <>f Election I>ay. and thou
sands of fraudulent votes were counted for
Democratic candidates. Even in tlie worst times.
however, when many respected citizciis ab
stained from voting because Itepuhlioau votes
"did not count " and because to to the polls
meant to be insulted and possibly assaulted by
repeaters and rowdies, tho Democratic party
never carried the county by a majority like the
one cast for Gorernor «M»»I!.
The unpopularity of David B. Hill at his
home, the split in tlir> Democratic party and
the perfect organization of tin* Republican* all
contributed toward tho result; but all these
would not have availed if the conditions in
Albany had licit been improved, and for that
reason the citlseni of the capital city deserve
t<» be doubly congratulated.
THi: PARK ROW BLOCKADE.
The proverbial patience of New-Yorkers,
which it would be almost Impossible to c\n«
gerate, has spldoni been more Impressively dis
played thau in the case of the prolonged block
ade of Park Row by the subway construction.
Here ls one of the most frequented thorough
fares of the whole city, li carries several of
the chief surface car lines. It is the main artery
into which Nassau, Beekman, Spruce, Frank
fort and other streets pour their congested cur
rents. It ig the chief avenue of access to the
lirooklyn Bridge and to the Third-aye. elevated
railroad. Upon or close to it stand many of
the most Important and most populous business
buildings of the city. It is. In brief, pre-emi
nently a thoroughfare which should be kept
open and unobstructed to the fullest possible
extent, and the temporary blocking of which
should be made as brief .-is the utmost expedi
tion ran make it.
Yet work actually seems to have been prose
cuted on the F'ark How portion of the subway
with exceptional slowness. Month after month
the great chasm and the boardings have been
there, grievously obstructing travel and causing
no liltle peril to limb and life, while the work
ing force and the rate of progress have appar
ently been at I minimum. So far as the general
public has been able t«» perceive or to ascertain,
the workings have for much of the time l»een
all but abandoned, as tin. ugh the task were
completed, or as though the chasm and board
ings were to remain an permanent features of
the great thoroughfare. The Inconvenience
caused has been and is today very great; far
greater than is to be Justified save in case of
absolute necessity, and in this case such neces
sity Is not apparent.
The people of New-York recognise the subway
as a necessity. They realise that In the con
struction of it some temporary Inconvenience
to them is inevitable. They have at no time
shown a captious or restless spirit under the
infliction of such inconvenience. There is no
intention now to complain of unavoidable delay
in completing any portion of the work. But
hers is a part of the work upon which it would
seem Jtll possible workmen should have been
massed In order to complete it with all possible
expedition, and yet the contrary appears to
have been the case. Really, it lias boon a
great tax upon the patience of tens of thou
sands. There is said to be a point at which
patience ceases to he a virtue. We do not say
it has yet been reached in this case. But at
least it is eminently desirable that public pa
tience should not be unduly taxed. The present
condition of Park Row is all but intolerable.
It ought to bo put into normal order at tin
earliest possible moment.
LIABILITY or EJPREBB COMPANIES.
The decision in the Supreme Court declaring
that express companies may not arbitrarily
limit their own res|M»usibi|ity for Urn goods In
trusted to their care is in accord with good
sense and plain everyday Justice. The express
companies are common carriers. They perform
a semi public duty and are well paid for the
work they do. When they take a package and
contract to deliver It they should not be allowed
to say bow far they will suffer for their own
carelessness. They should, be held to deliver
the goods which they are paid to carry or for
feit their full equivalent in money value.
It is an old habit of corporations of this sort
to make arbitrary rules which they force upon
their patrons. In some States the courts hare
compelled railroad companies to give trans
portation for wnieb they have been paid re
gardless of the artiticlal limit of time which
they put upon tickets, and in others It has even
been held that they cannot divest themselves
of liability for accidents by any form of agree
ment with patrons, even with the recipients of
free transportation. These decisions perhaps
go too far in limiting capacity to contract away
rights for a fair consideration in the way
of passes or reduced rates. Undoubtedly, how
ever, tbe tendency to forbid contracts freeing
a company of responsibilities is in the direction
of sound public policy. The corporations hav
ing practical monopolies of semi-public busi
ness are in position to dictate their own terms
of service to tbe people unless the law restrains
them, not only in the matter of rates, but also
iv the matter of liability foi failure to «lo their

THE TALK OF THE DAY.
The misfortune that hns driven Sir William Gor
don Macgregor into the workhouse at the age of
nfty-stx, says "The London Chronicle.", is in keep-
Ing with the history of this persecuted race. In
the early years of the seventeenth century every
man's hand was raised against them, and they
could be mutilated and slam with impunity. When.
In a less barbarous age. they were Invited to Join
the Sol»mn League and Covenant, they replied
that. they bore the crown on the point of their
swords, they would not fall to use the latter in de
fence of the former." The Macgregors were for
bidden to use their fasmlly nam- by James VI.
The proscription was removed by Charles 11. only
to be again inflicted In the retail of William an.t
Mary. Indeed. It was not till 1522 that a royal li
cenHe to use the name was granted to Sir Charles
Isacgregor, until then known as "Murray." In
