A mis uiablc woildling has como along and woiked up a scheme to lay a railroad on that street, which basso long been sacred to tho wealthy and dignified gentlemen who mado their money largely out of railroads w Inch ran by oilier people's doois. ' Ai.iwxihu IIa.miiio.s was Sccic tary of the Treasury at thirty. Ilnmil ton was doubtless piccocious, but tho woild was younger then. It takes nil old man in very good luck to win tho spurs of this gcneiation. Competition Is so intense and equal that chance ap pears toscttle tho question of leadership oftenei than mciit. A 1177:7 MOVKMUXT. Already the patilot editor has begun to rail at tho colored conventidn bo cnusc it side-tracked general polemies of public policy and took a header toward the solution of the nice pioblom. Despite what maybe said or wiitten by partisan oiacles, wisdom seems to liavo guided tho colored leadeis. It is just, rational and expedient that they should put usido nil other questions and Interests in tho intcicsl of solving tho one question upon tho happy settlement of which their piosperity, may ho their perpetuity, depends. In declining to be led away from the purpose of beck ing and husbanding tho lights and Llessings they are entitled to, by tho disputes over public welfare which are the1 disputes of parlies, they have taken an excellent position. Far tiom e.v pit'&sing nn alien inclination this step Indicates patriotic piogiess. It Is an expression of strength, of selfconfi dei'icc, Of puie eanfestness. The intelligent listeners to Senator Ingnlls' iccent speech were struck by thu paindov it contained. He flr-t made out n hceiiiiiigly-peifect cao against tho toiy of assimilation, defined the while us an invincible conqueror and the black ns a hopeless citlen, and then assailed the while Democrats of the ."niitli because they icslsted tho political development of the negro. If Senator Ingnlls were logical in that elToit his peroration should have been a tilbute to the evidence In tho South of tho Caucasian genius for conquest which ho so dramatically pointed as a universal truth nt tho outset. If Senator Ingnlls is right; if nature dictates the social and political supremacy of tho Caucasian, the Southern Deinociats aro justified in tveiythiug thtfy may do to prevent tho ascendancy of tho negro, and Senator ingnlls in posiug postulates to tho con trnry Is cm featuring his own leasonlng It is plain then that ho spoke with ouo breath ns tho philosopher, and with another as a politician. In contrast to what he said let us llstun to one who has delved deeply Into the subject; ouo who has studied It practically and not abstractly. "Both races," says Major I.neey," nre alike amenable to social and church infiuenccs. Ilotl) ate alike Methodists, Ilapttsts and Piusbyteilnns; and ccitaihly enn never light on tho score of religious liillucncc. Tho only iliffcrenco is caused by politics, and year by year tho inllucnce for oil of Iho' political knave who would make criminal uso of the good Instincts of tho negro to be a Republican, by teaching him that oven on local mattcisnu"ccting his own mntcilal Interests, ho must, per lorcc, voto for any scoundiel who dubs himself n Republican, has lessened." It should bo distinctly borne In mind that uo disagreement, no reslsteneo, is originated by tho negro. Compared with the white, ho is as tho child to the parent. Ho is going to survive or per JbhJ'JBiprove or (Icgeneintc, by t&0 tui tion we give, by the examples wo set him. As yr-t lit tho slmplo nml onto tlonnl ttngo of human growth ho l-i Slflttl with the finest Imitative- Instinct. As time nrodliectod till they crystal lire In great power of reason, which shall find cxpicsslon In tho action or movement of nny considerable mass of his people, the Caucasian will bo blamed or pinlsul In history. If ho Is opposed and leptesscd by tho cynicism now actuating both putles, ho must himself become cynical In time. Then It will be Homo and the barbarians over again. -If humane considerations mo allowed to operate In his behalf, his origin and color cannot piovenl htm from becom ing u useful and p.itilotlc Itopubllcin. He Is not wilfully giogarlous, ns Sena tor Ingnlls would have us believe. What wo call tho foclal laws force him Into communal existence. Ho prefers association with tho whites, and none deny It to him so obstinately as llio Northern Republicans, who poso as his rulecmois. In parts of the South, mid partlculaily In Yliglnlo, as Major I.neey says, tho tolerance toward him is patriarchal and holpful. In tho North ho Is taught to tho fullest extent tho lesson of political and social cruelty. Soiithcrncis who shut him out fiom tho bnllot box because- ho would vote, out of his misplaced gratitude, blindly nnd Ignoiantly, arc guilty of no more malignity than tho ex-aboll-tlonlsts and Republicans practice In de nying him tho civil lights they have framed ns laws only to violate thorn. That ho begins to see tho exact relation ho occupies townid all the whites in fact, has been made appucnt by the do- HberAtions of this convention. That ho discerns the need of education in Us broadest sense, as tho means of intelli gently exacting the rights tho rebellion made possible, gives liopo that ho will attain to something tho politicians would never voluntnilly giant him. Since Amcilcnn parties deem It expo dient to borrow anxiety from tho homo liile agitation In Knglnnd, nnd to coun tenance, in localities, tho preservation of tho Gciman tongue hi public schools, out of their deep concern for tho wcl fnic of constituencies, it is barely pos sible that tho negroes, once they assert tho independence of their wishes, will sccme tho legislation nnd nid which Is to mnke their r.ico a wise nnd happy factor of the icpubllc. "N'Vr XOT CVfOU'A THEM. It is difficult to conceive that the rnilio.ul aristocracy can go much fur ther in its rule and ruin policy without o i rturnlng its own magnificent edifice. Its subversion of Legislature thioughoiit tho "West tho past few yean is grievous enough to contemplate, but nothing that has occurred in the way of exemplifying Mr. Vandcrbilt's axiom is quite so shocking ns the disclosures just made by tho Now York Uoaul of Itnihond Commissioners. For soven years the commissioner have been diligently finding evils and suggesting well-consideicd lomcdies, and for seven years the State Legisla tine has been scoffing their virtuous on denvors. Accorded neither tho power to cnfoicc theh commands against tho railroads nor the light to supplicate the assistance of the couits, they havo ma'do their lccommcmlations to the Legisla tuic without enlisting tho slightest sup port or eucouiagement. On the continiy, tho l.egislatuie his continually put their energies nnd tho I icsults to contempt. Now the boaid is going to lcpoit that thev shall make no mote lecommcmU- tions unless specifically lcquested to do so. This is a delightful testimonial lo tho ascendancy of tho lallroad kings. Everything is thciis, from tho earth to the United States Senate. Nothing is denied their ambition sno tho crowns which our lespectcd Legislatures, the tribunes of tho people, will soon decide to place upon their noble heads. TA If TFF A XJ) 11 WIIKS. In nn Intel view, a icport of which is published In another column, Colonel R, V,. "Whitman, tho Washington mem ber of tho California firm of l'ohndoiff &. Co., lets some light on tho eilort of the manufacturers of machine made corks to Induce. Congress to aid them in forcing people to buy their coiks or go without. Of couiso tlicio is nothing staitlingly now in this pioposi tion, for ever since combinations began to be made for monopolistic purposes these tactics have been in uso; nnd tho enormous fortunes of tho fow, ns well ns tho Increased po erty of the many, attest the success of this plan. It is strnngo that the great body of Ameiicnn people refuse to seo that they me pnjlng for tho fun those money kings nre having in making their vast, unnecessary ami dangeious accumula tions. It is astonishing that the peoplo will cry out against tho ciushing power of trusts nnd then turn about and vote down the man who tells them what thoy aro doing. This ono matter touched upon by Colonel Whitman Is n Tair examplo ot nil tariff legislation which looks to tho fosteiing of monopoly. It makes no dlfferenco what tits article may bo whether cork or something else If It be anything that tho many havo to pay for and that only tho few havo to sell, it will not be long until the monoy of tho muny Is In tho pockets of tho fow. The people will not much longer be hoodwIiiKed by the sophistries of tho rich. Rut tho danger is Hint by the time thu majority aw nkens to tho truth of the situation tho minority will have all the money and exeit all the power that such possessions would place in their hands. a . t phi:. YAh pukdii "run. Sir Charles Dilko, though in political eclipse, is worth giinsr car to, foi ho Is certainly shoulder to shoulder with Mr. Gladstone as-an economist, a thinker nnd a man of nllnirs. "Whatever may bo tho outcomo of the congicss," says ho, referring to tho proposal of tho German Dinperor, "It will be hut ono step iutho march toward tho geneial Socialistic uphcaal which Iiegaidas inevitable. In fifty or a hundred yearsourdescend nnts will look upon tho present organ ization cry much as we look upon tho feudal system of our ancestors." No ono is better qualified to give him self up to this spirit of prophecy thau Sir Citifies, for ho has traveled and sludkd with the diligence nnd Intensity of Montesquieu AVhatever may bo thought or stttd In ilcrhton of Socialism it must bo ad mitted that tho several christianized nations of the wbrld nro rustling on toward its le.itlaliou, or to sonto now political equilibrium which tho revolu tion it Inspires will produce. It should ho remembered that Socialism ts no modern German outgrowth. Its doc trines wero expounded In tho Holy Laud nnd Inernfted mi tho political maxims of thu French revolution. Robesptci 10 partly formulated them In tho Rights of Man nnd their llistprlncl pics wero appropriated by tho foundois of tho American Constitution. Poli tical philosophers vainly tried to adapt them In the blondest sensotp the organ ism of the First Republic. Thus fnr foclnllsm has been little moio than a beautiful theory, how ever, slnco its stiuctuio musk rest on that (quality and fraternity to which Democracy pretends, but has novcr, as yet, pinqtlced. It springs from nn in unto sense of right, Intended by the laws of resistance to become just as powerful as that which, growing Into frenzy, upset kings nnd overturned re ligious despotisms in tho past. Men cannot safely graut to each other an equal Intcicst In the belongings and needs of life, whllo thoy go on strug gling to prove unequal powers for ap propriating them. Tho concession, in theory, that men nro equal, founded on tho Immortality of tho soul, implies tho intention of tho Supremo Intelligence that thoy shall be cquul in tho material relations nnd benefits of life. When this truth has taken possession of tho masses, political forms that confer su perior blessings upon tho fow who aro skilled In making ends justify means must be swept away, perhaps by blood. At iast Tin: grip has been run down to Its primal cause. A learned and traveled Writer asserts that the Turks, of all tho peo ple In Tiuropc, wero tho only ones to escape the 0l6caso; and he thinks It Is because tucy do not tnko oft their hats to ladles on tho street. It ts, therefore, because we other peoplo do tako oil our liats that we havo tbogifp. This probably explains why tho )oung lady who docs not take oft her big, big hat never gets grip enough to keep her from a theatrical performance. I'm: 1'itu.Aiii M'liiA Itceord tells of a woman In that city who Is still alive, though her neck was broken last Aucust. But, then, Philadelphia ts a kind of slow old town, whero peoplo never do anything In much of a hurry. Give the woman tlmo and she will die all right enough.

Tin: Nlw YoitK Tribune Is Informed that "Major Serpa l'lnto, tho Portuguese flllbustcrcr, Is near-sighted." Strange how filibustering affects tho vision. Now, there were tho distinguished flllbustcrers In tho House pf Itcprcsentntlvcs, for instanco seo how short-sighted they wero! "You vnni.," unscnvGii Nym Crinkle, In speaking of Miss Marlowe's Iloiultud, "that tho Ignis fulnus glimmer ot subtle feeling Is tho glimmer ot those- fireflies ot temperament buzzing purposely round and round In a bosky covert."

EXPENSIVE WORK LOST. f-OLGEIVS IINTEFiFErtENCE SAID TO HAVE SPOILED MANY GUNS. I'ltrthvr lllull Cincornlnc tho Now flilnf or OrilnuiiCB'n AIIokoiI Inon purlt) lie Denies the Ctmrces .Icnlnot llltiu The publication In Tin: Ciiitic yes terday of the charges that aro being mndo ngalnst Chief Folccr of the llu reau of Ordnance by Assembly 5809, If. of Ij., was the prevailing topic of conversation among Navy-Yard en ployes of all grades last evening. The officers ns a litlo scouted nt the idea ot there being any truth In the charges, nnd contc'ndcd that tho rela tlons between them and tho mechanlcil employes of the yard wero of tho picas- nntest description. Tho latter, how ever, or nt least those of them who wero not nfrtiidtooxpicss an opinion on the subject, were delighted lo find public attention called to the unfair manner in which they allege they have been treated. According to tho statements of these men the experiment of establishing a gun iactory nt tho Navy Yard has not been an unqualified success under tho superintendence of Mr. Folger. In a. number of instances, after much valu able tlmo and material has been used In order to produce guns, the result hrts been masses of metal fit only to be sold to a junk dealer. A number of steel six-Inch and at least two eight-inch guns aro said to havo been utterly spoiled in tho course of manufacture owing to Mr. Folgor's hnvlng interfered with tho operations of the e.pcit mechanics employed in the cun shop. As an Instanco of tho manner in which ho achieved this result it isic Intcd that a short tlmo ago, when an eight-inch jacket was being fitted to the tubo of a gun, Mr. Folger undertook to superintend tho operation. Tho man ner in which this work Is accomplished is as follows: Tho tube Is placed In an upright po sition, nnd tho jacket, after having been heated to a proper degree, Is lowered over it. When it reaches tho proper point cold water is dashed over It. causing it to contract and thus adhere tightly to the tube. 'On this occasion, ns tljo jacket was being lowered, Chailes G. Robinson, tho expert mechanic in charge of the work, observed that it was rapidly cooling nud would stick before reaching tho desired point. He there fore gave an order to hoist tho jacket up again, but Mr.Folgcr countermanded this and ordered tho men to lower away, tho result being just as Mr. Rob Inson had foicsccn. Tho course usually pursued when au accident of this kind happens, is to pour molten metal mound the jacket until It becomes sufficiently heated to expand ncain, when it Is easily re moved. Mr. Folger, however, chose another method of accomplishing the removal of the jacket, and oidcieet the men to cut It off tho tube. It was rep resented to him that if this w as done the enoimous mass of metal, weighing several thousand pounds, would be wnsted. He replied that it woull be used for breech plugs, and his order was executed. It then piovcd that the metal was not suitable for biceeh plugs, and it was thrown aside to go into Uncle Sam's profit and loss account. Metal of tho kind used for gun jackets ts very expensive, owing to tuo pecu liarly' severe tests which it must bo capable of undergoing. Since then nnother eight-inch jacket, stuck in the samo manner, and, al though everybody about tho shop saw that ilr. Folger had made a gravo mis take in oulcilng the first one cut, he, rather than acknowledge that he was in the wrong, ordered tho same process to be repeated. In this connection it is a significant fact that, immediately after Mr. Folgor's fiist blunder with tho eight-inch jacket, the wages of Mr. Robinson, tlie mechanic In charge of the onoiatlon, weio incieascd fiom $3.20 to $4 a day, since when he has been careful not to talk about the matter. As Tim Cnmo dcsiics to give both sides of the story when chaigcs me made ngalnst nny official, ono of its rq porters culled upon Mr. Folger last evening to ascertain whether ho had any statement to make regarding the allegations that have been made against him. That gentleman, however, de clined to discuss the matter, beyond giving a geneial denial tp the charges, which he characterized as absuid and Insnlicd by a man who felt sore at being discharged from tho yard for ab senting himself too frequently from duly. ruiMi.s cmjKr.LY oiiastiskd.
