WYicfcrred a few days ago to the im
pending New York general election, and to
a certain result which might give a politl
cal significance thereto, namely: that its
result might delermine thcpcrsnnnnlc'nf the
ohlef.juticcshlp of the United States.
This is not the only judicial question to be
ilcteimlncd at that time, but tlicio is aim
thcr, and one which may prove still more
Important, although, nl this time, the ques
tion of politics does not enter therein. Un
der the present, constitution of New York,
all of her judges are elected by the people,
at a general election. Ity vlttuc of a spe
cial act of the legislature, a constitutional
commission, appointed by Governor Hoff
man, have submitted to the people, an
amendment to tho state constitution, pro
viding forthe appointment, instead of the
election of judges, and this question Is to
be determined at the next general election.
The lesult will be watched for with great
interest, because It will be considered from
so many different standpoints, and while
the theoretical arguments on the one side or
the other, will vary, those drawn from ex
perience will be precisely the same. There
are but three methods In vogue in the
United States, by which judges are selected,
namely! by appointment of tho executive,
with the consent of the higher branch of a
legislative body ; by election ot the legisla
ture j or by popular election. If one com.
meuces a theoretical Argument In favor of
the adoption or continuauce of cither of
these causes or methods, he will And rea.
sons enough to sustain the particular side
lie Is advocating, as well as illustrations of
n pure, learned and Incorruptible judiciary
secured by that method. It is somewhat
lemarkable, when we lake n calm review
of our judicial history, to find that in the
exercise of these three different methods of
selecting the membcis of our highest, as
well as lowest, courts, the results air ex
actly the same. If tho United Stales has
hern particularly happy In anything, it has
been In the purity, Intejriity and learning of
her judiciary, and they have been obtained,
equally, under every system which has
been ndnpteil for their selection. Willi the
few- exceptional Instances In New y0ik
city, popular elections hive seemed the
same kind of courts that would have been
looked for by executive or legislative up
polnlmenl. There may have been, perhaps, u chango
of nipn, but we refer lo llio court, as a
court, so far as it can be relied upon for
ability and Integrity. When O.udozo, Me.
("turn and Harnard disgraced the bench, it
seemed, for a time, that the cxpcilmcnt of
an cleclion of the judges by the people was
a failure. We looked nt these rare, ex.
eeptlnnal Instances - mere drops In a bucket
as deciding the whole question, williout
for a moment ronsiileilng the vast
uumbi r lit Judjic, nil over tho coun
try, who weio elected by the people to fill
judicial station, solely for the reason that
they were qualified, both intellectually and
morally. If In any place In the world, it
would bo dangerous to entrust to tho peo
ple the choice of her courts, that place
must bo New Yoil: cily, Sho elected Car
ftnio and Barnard, but when they were Ira.
peached and their places rendered vacant,
there was no difficulty In electing, In their
stead, mrn of tho right stamp. The snmo
result has como trom thn ndoptlonof either
of the other courses, flood men have
almost always been obtained ; bad or lu.
competent men are tho raie, exceptional
Instance!,. When the people, legislators or
xecutlvcs approach tho question of what
ancu shall administer tho laws and declare
justice between man and man, they seem
to bo actuated by different feelings and
motives thau those which govern In other
appolutmcnts and selections. Fewer bad
men have, been appointed, proportionately,
to judicial stations than to any other, and
they will be found to bo relatively the samo
under each and eycry method. Tho same
Is true as regards tcnuie of office. We
have the same class of courts whether the
tenure ol office has been for life, or for one,
two or six years. We think, moreover,
that with the exception of llfo teuutcs, the
same Individual retains his position on the
bench for about the same length of time,
whether his term of office Is one, two or
more years. As the country has always,
heretofore, been and as, wo trust, it will
always continue, It looks more like theory
than real Importance, how our Judges
shall be selected. Each, every and all
systems have given us the best attainable
courts, and we look upon tho New York
election only as indicating whether tho
people prefer a now, dlfllrcnt, or revived
system, for the me.-c sake of tho change,
wllhout nny col responding benefits.
The forly.thlrd Congress will bo del
ugedwlth schemes for Internal improve
ments and with projects having for tliclr
object the cheapening of rates of trans
portntloti. These schemes mid projects
will be diverse In their character, and
while all are sailing under Hie same ling of
"cheap transportation to tide water," they
will Involve different nnd entirely diverse
Interests nnd rely for their stipporl mainly
on local Influences. While all, nlso, will be

whole matter may be shipwrecked. Is
reached, there is another question thai
must be met and decided. The old ques
tion oi how far Ihe general government,

stand upon n dlfleicnt hais fi(iin Ihoso
which have, heretofore, been aided by hnd
grants or endorsements of bonds, anil must
bo controlled by another course of iiason
ing and constitutional roeslmrtion.
We mi' not about to enter upon (lie dis-cii-sinn

woiks, or to aid olhers that may engage
therein, although this must be first author
llivrlv settled before such aid can be made

on the part of the government, even If the
legal and constitutional right mid power
was settled. Our whole object is lo call
attention to one of the most stupendous en
lerpilses, as it seems to us, that was ever
suggested by man, ami by the side of
which the Pacific r.iiho.ul pales into com.
paiativo Insignificance. We nil know the
Immense good thai has resulted from that
work, even when we take into account the
fraud, conuptlon, bribery, blasted reputa
tions, etc., that followed In Its train; we
believe, that If the present project can be
consummated, whether with or without
government aid, tiie benefits to the whole
country, both cast and west, will be Incal
culable, and that its assured success nnd
completion would dispose of ihe question
of "termini," without so much ns touching
it. Briefly, this work Is simply Impioving
the Ohio river by Incieaslng the volume of
Its water from the great lakes, thereby se
curing constant and uninterrupted naviga
tion. This Intel ruptlon of navigation, by
the subsidence of the stieam at certain
season of Hie1 year, nnd, sometimes, uncx-pectcdly-
has been a grand ally for rail
road moiiopollsts.becauso transportation by
the Ohio could not always be relied upon,
and it was impossible to predict the length
of a particular trip. At other limes, nivl
gation was entirely suspended and freight,
consequently, was compelled to look else
where for an outlet. These interruptions,
temporary delays and, nt times, rnthe sus
pensions have operated to play Into the
hands of monopolists, for the reason that
shippers could not afford to send forward
their goods upon an enthe uncertainty as
to the time of tliclr deliver. If the Im
provements, which wc shall piescntly dr.
tail, could be made,eithcr by governmental,
corporate, or individual enterprise, we
think a grand step would be taken towards
the solution of the problem of cheap nan.
It Is proposed and roinpetrnt engineers
pronounce It feasible to establish rcser
voirs at fixed distances on Like Erie, and.
by means -f powerful engines, force water
theiefroin iuto Lake ( 'hat.iuqiia, thence
into the Alleghany river, and from here,
naturally, into the Ohio. If tlitr could be
accomplished, nu unobstructed navigation
of the Ohio would brnssiued, and an out
let furnished for heavy Heights from nnd
to the states through which II flows, nnd
through which the livers, to which it is
tiibutary, pass, nnd upon whose borders
are the great lakes which air, i rem be,
connected with them. The grr.it trouble,
however, is with tli.it little word "If."
To consummate tln work would rcqniicnn
original cxpendiluie of millions upon mil.
lions of dollais, and in keep thn engines,
cle, hi icpalr would require a further an.
iiu.il cxpendltuic, the amount of which
would depend, of course, upon the tolls re.
eel vol. if, however, It should be mndc a
government woik, like the improvement of
rivers nnd bathers, It Is estimated that two
or three million of dollars would beaimual
ly requited for repairs. We doubt not, the
work onco complete, that tho benefit
thereof, by tho lessening of rates of freight,
could hardly be computed by thousands or
millions of dollars annually, If nno will
tako a map and examine the route, they
will see that at least sixteen states of the
Union our own among the number nro

fact that somo of tlicso waters, their con.

becauso most, If not nil, of the non.pro.
duclng as well ns the producing btates, nro

It Is, we presume, upon this largo direct
Interest, aided by those more remotely ben.

this project rely In seeking governmental

Hi Ti.VNii.Srpt. .'Olh.
IaHOh-ff tin' 11 lobe: You inusl look to
your laurels Mr. Editor. You would
scarcely have thought it, but it is a fact,
we have an Insurance Editor in our midst.
He wriles for your rival around the
comer. His latest production is the
leader In Jla-ahl of .i-t Thurs
day. As a piece of stupidity and
gross Ignorance It is entitled to the fir-t
premium nnd a leather medal in addition.
He says "the Eclectic Mutual Life In.
surance Company has fallnt." '''nl
illustrates his thorough knowledge of the
subject. There never was a company by that
name lu New York or any where elsewhere.
But that makes no difference lo the Insu
ranee Editor. Whether he has confounded it
with a company whoso name is somewhal
similar which has failed, or with a com
pany which owns a part of the nbovo
namo which has not failed "no feller
His wail is confined to life insurance and
his pet aversion Is "tho brigade of agents."
Fire Insurance and all manner of mercantile
business,and buying and selling of every de
scription, is done thiough agents. Tho
very paper for which he writes is dally
paying a larger commission to Its agents
than is paid by any life company. Yet,
according lo this luminous w riter, It is the
life companies only that should do their
business without agents. If he knew the
A B C of tho subject be undci takes to
write leaders, about he would know that at
least one company in this countiy, for sev
eral years did not employ any agents. It
has now a small "brigade of agents," and its
business last year was transacted at a propor
tionate expense of about two-thirds what it
cost during the years when it had no agents.
Again ; one of the oldest life offices now
doing business, has for over a hundred
years, paid no commission to agents, and it
has been distanced by the agency com
panies not only In amount of business and
benefits conferred, but In the cost of Insur
ance. He says lurther : "To our own
knowledge many a widow and helpless or
phan lir.fi been mado comfortable by the
proceeds of n llfo policy that would other
wise have been subjected lo beggary and
suffering." Hero's logic for you, whole
chunks ot It. Will tho Insurance editor in
form us how many of these widows and
orphans weir saved from poverty irittout
tho aid of nn agent? But ho says tho.-o
companies nro "expenslvo enterprise," yet
ho pays a firo company to insure his hou-e,
and the fire companies are twico as expen
slvo as the life companies. More logic.
He says agents advance theories "which
aro an Insult lo common sense," Ho ought
to be thankful that he, at Ieasi, Is in no
danger. He complains that agents havo
costly signs Does no other business have
costly signs ? Tho costliest sign In town
Is owned by the tiro agent, who numbeis
among his patrons tho Insurance, (alitor
aforesaid. Jaigicagain. (There Is nothing
llko logic, .Mr. Editor.)
But lie says ono company has failed. He
thinks It Is tho "Eclectic Mutual Life," but
ho is not certain, (what's hi a namo to tho
Insurance Editor) henco ho proceeds to
veutllato his Ignorance nnd string together
a lot of platitudes.
Did ho ever hear of tho failure of a flic
company, of a bank or tiust company, or
savings bank? Why docs ho select llfo
Insurance alone, which Is conspicuous
among tho financial Institutions nf tho
country for the fewness of its failures, to
warn his readers against It ? Why not let
n healthy competition and tho law of sup
ply nnd demand govern this ns It governs
Thero was onco n llfo company lu Now

represented went from bad to worse,
changed Its mime, relusured nnd stopped.

morning, a lire broke out In the black
smith shop belonging to tho Belcher
mining company, situated 1,1100 feet below
the level In the Yellow Jacket mine, a
shoit distance north of the Jackson shaft.
The timbers being very dry the flro spread
lapldly, and soon filled the Yellow Jacket,
Crown Point, and Belcher Mines with gas
nnd smoke About n quarter past 3 o'clock
nn explosion occurred, which put out the
lights hi nil three mines. The workmen nt
this time were hurrying from Hie Crown
Point and Belcher shafts, and all escaped
except six, whose bodies have since been
recovered. Communication betvvreii Hie
Imperial, on the north, nnd the Crown
Point 011 the south, has been cut off.
Their is no danger of the lire spreading, as
it is (onllned lo a place where there Is but
little timber, and must soon die out. File
men moon the giound, but their services
cannot bn brought Into requisition. Work
will bo commenced probably In the Belcher
and Crown Point mines to-morrow, as they
have sustained but little damage.
The following were killed and their
bodies recovered : Lewis Losnlle, J 11
Water.'. W Broailninlcr, Tom NIIcs, J
Cusiek. (icorgr 11 Nudd. A number of
others an' suffering from burns ami In
haling of gas. A rumor is current that
others of the woikmen have perished, and
the people nie greatly excited. The
miners insist that time shall be no more
blacksmith shops in mines.
The following fuller particulars of Ihe
milling disaster nt Cold Hill, Nevada, have
been received :
Shortly before o'clock on Friday after
noon u file was discovered burning in the
L'.'OO-fool level of Ihe Yellow Jacket mine,
noilh of the slintl An explos.on of gas
soon orruirrd, which neaily knocked down
the men standing nl Ihe mouth of the
shaft, ami caused Hie cages which were
raised to that point to jump up fc.vcrnl in
ches. Smoke came rushing iqi the shaft
at the nunc time Knowing there must be
fire or something wrong below, an alarm
wns given, and tho engine sounded the
whistle of the wotks. The alarm was
quickly communicated lo the File Depait
mcnt. nnd in 11 short tlmo the firemen with
their machines were, nt tho scene nnd a
stream of water was pouring down the
shaft. Capt. Cosgrovo of the Sarsficld
Guard, Charles Kohicr, Chief Engineer of
the Yellow Jacket works, Jack Donahue
ami others were busy milling in n pump to
senn water lrom the l,.r,00-foot level of the
Yellow Jacket mine through to the Imper
ial shaft by adrift which connects Ihe mines
at the l,nno.foot level of the Yellow Jacket
mine, nnd In a few moments more
would have completed the job. The three
men whose names have been mentioned
were at the 1,. 100-foot level when the ex
plosion occurred nt Ihe l.SOO-foot level.
Thop above warned them of the danger,
and they saw a heavy volume of smoke
pouring from the drift into Hie shaft. They
escaped through the Crown Point mine
Tho force of Hie explosion was fell strong,
ly In both Crow n Point and Belcher mines,
and an alarm was communicated with
panic quickness. .Miners hurried to tho
shafts as speedily as possible, and effective
hoisting works, with double cages, brought
them to the surface. Tho force of tho ex
plosion blew out the lights in the 1,000-foot
level, and in continuous parts of the two
mines men were thrown violently off their
feet. Several miners were missing. It
was known that some must have been
killed or so Injured that they could not
escape. As soon ns the great rush was ov er
p.11 tics went iu .search of the killed and
wounded, and found six. Tom Niles and
Thomas Ciisslck were sent up first. They
were soon followed by four others. Five
