1 The report that the currency question hns

more talk in favor of silver even from thu

i premature Later advices are that Senator

Certain recent events in national politics

I i ator IILACKIILIIX heroic to every observer
vrhoto Impartiality Is not disturbed by any

of a statesman who at tho of

Government Club men and tho AfroAmeri

Offsetting these disadvantages t some

The position of the Police Commissioners
In regard to the Excise law has been that
although the law was In some respects un
desirable it was their duty to have it en
forced until it should b modified or repealed
executive officers anil
pealed They arc 01ccr8 ali
they must see that the laws are enforced
This would bo a logical If not a satisfac
tory defence If the Commissioners tried to
enforce all the laws Notoriously they do
not try They seem to suppose that It II
the one object of the police to enforce this
ole particular law n law that had become
practically obsolete In so far as its most
obnoxious provisions were concerned Now
if by an alteration of conditions a cliange
of public sentiment or any other cause cer
tain laws have Income obsolete it Is I earn
mon sense for the Police Commissioners to
let them sleep and to devote themselves
to the execution ot the lawn which still
correspond with nn actual necessity or
demand of the public nml which hale
BomqthinK more than n merely nominal ax
istence upon the statute book No incon I
siderable part of the law is superfluous and
dormant The Police Commissioners have
themselves recognized that there are laws
which may b allowed to sleep In spite of
the decision of Judge McAliAM they al
lowed the druggists to sell soda wnter yes
terday They deliberately permitted a law
to be violated They deliberately suspended
the action of one law and went on in their
efforts to secure the enforcement of another
They said to tho saloon keepers You shall
not sell on Sunday against the law and to
the druggists You may sell on Sunday
against the law
Mr KOOSKVELT and his associates in offl
ciousncss are taking upon themselves a re
nponsibtllty for which they will b hard put
to it to find warrant They are becoming
at once more and less than mere executive
ofllcers More because they are practically
acting as legislators by reviving sleeping
statutes situ making their own whim the
touchstone of what is and what is not to ho
enforced Less because they wink at plain
violations of laws which are not part of the
code which they have selected nt their own
sweet will They ore nonexecutive rather
than executive ofllcers They suspend or al
low to remain suspended the execution of
many laws in order that they may concen
trate their official energies upon a single
law which offers the greatest opportunities
for continual sensation ali advertising
Will the lon TIIEODOUE HOOSEVKLT In
clude In the powerful oratorical effort with
which ho proposes to crush Senator IIILL
tomorrow an apology or defence of his
refusal to execute all tho laws that require
the attention of the police Will lie ex
plain why If he neglects to enforce all the
laws in regard to Sunday observance ho is
not culpable from a reform point of view
and proper for removal P Will ho make
clear what authority he and his associates
have to discriminate between violators
of the law to nab tho saloon keeper and let
the druggist violate the law unpunished
and unpursued f Will ho show upon what
principle of Justice or common sense ho
proceeds in allowing certain laws t remain
inoperative ali Insisting upon the strictest
enforcement of the Excise law thereby
annoying n great part of the population
and impressing them with the fact that
under the rule of Reform the laws aro un
equally enforced P
Mr HOOSEVELT has not been unduly ret
icent since he has occupied his present
post and he has made his explanations
and declarations of Intention as numer
ous as the perplexing subject tle
maiuled but the public is j still perplexed
Just what Is ho trying to do all how does
ho account forhimself t Henlly ho seems to
lie In a serious position fiercely militant
for one law turning his back cavalierly
on another How can lu < expect that the
police will maintain Its discipline or cher
ish a pro > er respect for law when he
bhows himself impetuous for the en
forcement of one statute complaisant
blind to the violation of another Of what
use Is It for the young Caliph to walk abroad
for tho pur > OM of detecting patrolmen In
the heinous crime of conversation with a
citizen I he never peeps abroad to BCD what
laws are violated f
The only rational explanation of Mr
ROOSEVELTS Inconsistent ferocity In regard
to Sunday closing is that he must have
made 1 wager some time that If ho were I
Police Commissioner ho would shut up
every saloon lu New York on Sumluya lint
reform on this basis Is too narrow nnd If It
can deal with no greater matter than a Sun
day glass of beer Reforms expectation of
life cannot bo long
A Contrast

Actual War In Cuba
The conclusions of the Spanish Author
ties as t whet her a war Is going on In Cuba
may not b very easy t ascertain That
they think there Is something going on In
Cuba resembling war may b judged from
tho number of troops they havo found It
necessary to send t the Island and tho num
ber of new gunboats for patrolling waters
which they hare ordered
Whatever lay b the Spanish view that
of our War Department can b surmised
from tho fact that it has under considera
tion tho question of detailing army officers
to witness and report Upon the military
operations In Cuba The plan II to Bend not
only one oflicer as In the case of some wars
but four or one for each division of the
Spanish army Tho idea is I Interesting and
novel as connected with Cuba There would
be no very long journey for the detailed out
cons and some hints for practical campaign
ing might b picked up At all events the
fact that tho plan Is contemplated Indicator
the importance which our military authori
ties attach to the uprising iu the Island
This II practically 1 recognition of the
Cuban revolutionists as Itelllgcrents The
next step should bo their formal recognition

Col GrarcsH Service to Literature
We hear some criticism of 01 Toll
TEMIIK GICAVES of Georgia for giving to the
press Mr CLEVELANDS Important letter on
Wrddcd Bliss In which tho President de
scribes himself as one who can testify
with unreserved tenderness to the sanctlfl
tnlerneBs Mnctl
cation which comes to man when heaven
directed love leads the way to marriage
The letter was Intrusted to tho delicacy
and discretion of Col GRAVES The
Colonel had it framed in white and gold and
has kept it hanging for nearly live years in
his parlor where anybody could read it
This practically amounted t publication
Has the fortunate possessor of the manu
script abused the confidence reposed in him
hr l > thu author or in any way violated the
unwritten Ittws of delicacy by placing these
poetically conceived and beautifully ex
pressed sentiments concerning matrimony
where they are at the service of the whole
Englishspeaking race
We reply No most emphatically No
We hold that in tho absence of an express
prohibition from Mr CLEVELAND Col
GIVES ot Georgia would have been guilty
of breach of trust i ho had neglected any
longer to publish the letter Tho senti
ments are so creditable to the President as
a man and a husband as a redeemed and
sanctified old bachelor we may even
Bay that nobody on earth can think
less of him for committing them to
paper in the first place and in the
second place to tho delicacy and discretion
of a Georgia Colonel Furthermore the let
ter was written not in the primal fervor
and more or less irresponsible enthusiasm
of the honeymoon mood but four years ali
1 half alter marriage n period sufficiently
long to allow philosophy tnrcHiimo its sway
The letter was not tliishexl off in n foolish I
moment I bears internal evidence of that
same laborious painstaking deliberation
as to the choice of words and phrases
and the proper balance of sentences which
characterizes Mr CLEVELANDS published
writings and speeches upon the more ordi
nary themes of statesmanship Ho has no
lure cause to Ixj ashamed of It as a liter
ary production than as II manly confession
that up to the ago of fifty he did not half
know what lifo WIll
In seeking for aquotatton with which t
conclude his panegyric the married state
Mr CLEVELAND full happily upon these
lines of CHAHLKS KlXGSLEYs
tin good tweet maid and let wbo will b eleven
Dutiable 1 thing nut dream them all day loan
And to make life death and that nt forever
One grand tweet tong
That these verses occurred spontaneously
and naturally to tho Presidents mind and
by no artificial process or adventitious aid
there Is reason to believe It is
every rClhOn lleo I 1

had depended upon the Index to HAUTLETTS

No Flag on the Blanket Ballot
At a meeting of the Democrats of the
Fourteenth district tho Thirteenth war
of the city of Brooklyn last week the selec
tion of an emblem for the party ticket next
autumn was discussed and the association
finally adopted a resolution earnestly recom
mending that American flag b chosen a
tho Democratic symbol
The only objection t this choice Is that
tho itew blanket ballot law expressly forbids
the use of the national flag as n party
device upon the new pictorial ballot
It Is 1 very good Idea to read anew statute
before taking any action under It
Such a course Is apt to save some trouble
the waste of brain tissue and considerable
needless talk
A number of other symbols are prohibited
by tho HAIKKS law portraits being among
tho forbidden emblems
Any kind of an animal however Is al
lowed by the law I
How would an elephant do for the G O 1
P and a rooster for the valiant Democracy t
An eagle would 0 a fine emblem but cars
would bo to him differ

United States Tho statute prohibits any
representation of that seal or the seal or
coat of arms of any State

That there should have ben no sealers there
Is all right since pelagic hunting does not be
come lawful again until Aug 1 and tho Vic
toria craft would be foolish to cruise In these

of seals seems to bear out the reports that tho

WAsniNQTon July 14A comparison between
the details of tho two type of construction la
the six gunboats for which proposals have now I
been Invited furnishes several point of much
Interest They have In common a normal dis
placement ut about 1000 toni and an Indicated
horse power of about 800 giving t each the
extremely moderate speed of twelve knot The
normal draught of each to the bottom of the
keel Is twelve fclt This will allow them t b
used In river scrvlco on foreign stations While
I
the four vessels of the tingle screw type have a
length of JOB feet on load water lno and an ex
treme beam of DO the twin screw vessels have a
length of 174 and a beam of 34 Again the I
former carry full salt power while tho twin
screw vessels hare steadying calls only and
depend on engine powor The boilers In tho two
types of vessels are of the Imo character each
boat having two singleended Scotch boilers
but of course there Is 1 difference In tho engines I
that of the single crew boats running at 100
revolutions to develop tho required 800 horse
power and the two engines of the twin screw
boats runnlnc at 200 revolutions In developing
tin same power An uncoupling arrangement
used when the single screw boats are going
under sail ulono allows the screw to revolve by
the action of the water and It la I believed thai
little retardation will result
Mill another difference In the two types Is that
the normal coal supply of the single snow boats
will be 100 tons with a total bunker capacity of
> I while that of tlm other typo will b 1UO
tons with a total rapacity of 20 This differ
ence Is duo to the fact that the auxiliary pall
screw power typo will allow areductlonof coal In tire single
If wo compare the now composite vessels with
existing steel gunboats the lMtne Bnd Machine
come nearest to them In displacement twine
1177 tons ali they have a mean draught of 1J
feet Tire llathbullt boats however are 10
fet longer and nearly two feet narrower In
addition they have 1H7U and2llU horse power
respectively or between two and three times
what Is to he supplied to the now vessels It Is
therefore not surprising to find that their speeds
arc In tlie one case UVtiand In the other knots
above what Is expected of the six new vessels
The normal coal supply of the Machine and Cas
tlno Is a llltlti greater but tIne total bunker ca
pacity Is loss In tho batteries there Is also n
Hilda difference Those of the Machlon and
Instlne consist of eight 4Inch guns four 0
poumlcrs two 1pounders and two Catlings
those of tho six new vessels of six 4Inch four
0pounders and two 1pounders
Ihothrcoitunboats building at Newport News
aro moro distinctively light draught than the
six now tn bu built slnco one of them lisa but
11 feet and the other two u feet of mean
draught They differ considerably from the
new vessels In all respects One vessel IsIII
feet longer ninth 2 feet broader with 1171 tons
moro displacement while the two others are
over 70 feet longer 4 feet bmodcr and of Ml
tons more displacement They also have a
larger bunker capacity and about double tire
Indicated horse power and two of them have 1
knot and the third ii knots more speed than tho
newest gunboats
The advantages of composite gunboats In re
quiring less docking and hence In being able to
keen the seas longer were fully set forth when
them vessels were planned It may however
be pointed out that Chief Constructor Hlch
born has for years been a strong advocate of
ulieiithed and composite vessels When the
Newport News gunboats were planned It was
hoped to make one or moro of them coraposlte
but It was found that the language nf the law
s tuUltl not allure this to be done However pre
cautions wero taken In the last naval act to
niter the customary wordlngso as to allow these
new vessels to be comjiosUe It may be observed
that in the nine latest cuntKiats the great aim
has been that of special adaptability to river
anil other service In foreign water such as
those of tire Asiatic and South American sta
tions combined with economy of cruising and
to this result hleh peed has been sacrificed
