HKV The oft-enacted railroad tragedy is ro- Hi' peated in all its sickening detnils at Kouts, Hflj ' 2nd. The murderous stove and the deadly MES , car-lamp perform their tcrriblo roles again, HBWi and the horrors of a holocaust aro added to HR&s" the massacre, doubtless doubling the list of Etj fatalities. HKg The action of the railroad officials in en- MmST deavoring to conceal and understate tho facts HE& of tho disaster is most reprehensible. Tho Re responsibility for tho accident must bo Hrar promptly determined and tho severest penol- Hb ties inflicted. HjHj How much moro terrible testimony ngainBt HjEi the car-stove and lamp is needed to ilnvo K, them from tho railroads of tho country? HJjhjjL The carnago and cremation at Kouts proves Hjfgfo conclasively that no known illumination U except electricity and no method of heating H&, except by steam or hot air or water from tho Hp engine are at all safe. Tho Now York Legis- Kx lature has outlawed tho car-stove in this State Kp after May 1, 1888. The almost equally danger- H' ous lamp should also be driven out. Every Men Btato in the country should take similar leg- KS Itlativo action. H&l' 00MMENDACLE F0EBEABANCE.

It seems to bo tho disposition at Folico Headquarters to pass over tho polico club bing cplsodo at tho Union Bqnoro meeting as lightly as possible. Indoed, Commissioner FonTEit, singularly enough, is said to bo dis posed to excuse if not to justify tho action of tho forco. Ocn. PoitTEn was not always of opinion that men should bo pushed too promptly into action. It is the duty of the Polico Board to mako n thorough investigation of tho affair. Thoso responsible for it ought to receive 6omo pun ishment. Tho broken heads may not seem of much consoquonco to tho Polico Commis sioners, howovcr painful thoy may bo to their owners. But tho unwarranted attack of tho officers on an unoffending meeting should bo censured, as a warning in tho future Bupt. Mumiat is tho determined enemy of unneces sary clubbing, and ho will not scrcon tho responsible parties. Not for what it did, but for what it might have led to, tho broach of duty is most repre hensible. Tho Folico Commissioners have no right to overlook an outrage that might havo brought upon tho city a dcplorablo disaster. "THE EVEHIHO WORLD'O" OUEBTB. Probably no playhouso walls over inclosed a moro appreciative audionco than that which filled tho Fcoplo's Thcatro to overflowing" last evening. Every one of tho 3,217 newsboys and newsgirls who accepted TnE Evenino WonLn's invi tation to witness a special porformanco of "Harbor Lights" will remember it as a red-letter occasion. They ovinccd an enthu siasm and a r.oBt of pleasuro that tho chronio critie has long outlived. And with it was a discrimination worthy of tho veteran theatro goer. No good point of dialoguo or sconory was missed by their alert eyes and cars. Tho tumultuous applause camo in whero it be longed. Tho horoino had their active en couragement. Tho villain was in imminent dangor of boing mobbed. At the happy denouement their joy was uncoufined. Tub Evenino Wonu takes prido in its 3,217 news boy and newsgirl guests. AN UNCOHB0I0DS COMPLIMENT, Tho notorious fonco and instigator of all grades of larceny, " Mother " Mandeldadm, declares from hor placo of refngo in Canada that Tns WoitLD Bhall get no information from her. Hhoavors: " The Wonuj drove mo out of Now York, and I'll havo nothing to say to its reporter." Mmo. Min nr.iJiAUM could say nothing moro com plimentary or acceptable to Tns Would than this. As for information about herself, our record is already tolerably com plete, and coincides with that at Folico Headquarters. Wo trust, huwovor, that tho Madame will mend hor ways whilo over tho border. Bho is Baiil to bo at present engaged in a legitimate business. May tho reforma tion bo permanent. It is novor Bafo to boast. Mr. AncnnuLs McNit.i.'h family boasted that tho burglars who brnko into their residence at Fairfield, Conn., a fow wcoks ago had overlooked a quantity of silverware. So the burglars To turned last Monday and carried off tho for gotten plunder.

What a humbug a " non-partisan " Tolieo Board is when composed of partisans equally divided. Tho rank and file of tho veterans on both sides of tho lato unpleasantness continuo to entertain each other with enthusiasm and a broadening mutual appreciation. Only thu political ranters aro unable to porceivo that tiuio has filled up tho bloody chasm. Tho mimic battlo on tho sea at Nowport demonstrates tho valuo of tho oloctrio light in navul engagements. If tho light of com mon senso could only bo diffused sufficiently throughout tho world there would bo an end to navies and armios, too. It is said that tho young Grand Duko Mi chael is of no account in Russia, so that hia anti-German speech is not v orth consider ing. But thou tho words of children gen erally indicato what is going on at homo. Flaws havo been discovered in tho Mitch, ellstown decisions against Editor O'Bmev. What of that ? As tho English Government has the judges and jurors it cares nothing about flaws or laws. Jay Gould says ho docs not care "to run in debt just now." Ho is in dobt already. Ho owes tho public a lot of explanations and a good deal of compensation for thoprhi logcs ho has enjoyed. A propitious voyngo to Mr. Bell of tho Thistle. He has captured something to bo prizod almost as highly as tho cup tho hearty good w ill of all American yachtsmt h. Miss Helen Dauvbat marries a baseball champion to-day. May thero bo no lack of diamonds in tho trousseau, and may perennial harmony preside over tho homo plate. We think we have demonstrated the valno of a centreboard stylo of afternoon newspaper. Belvidere, N. J., has a ghoit. Possibly It Is AyoziLO himself. It Is said that Babtboldi is to erect a monument to Boutab in South America. Wo hare nothing against Bolxtm, but why would it not be moro of an idea to engage tho great Frenoh sculptor to produco a magnlfl cent statno of CiiaisTornsa CoLtrwnun? Thoio continents should bear his namo, but, as they do not, ho should at least have a statuo hero worthy of his famo. DDOT MURPHY AROUND LOOSE. nilt Njr'n Apprrlirnnlnna Arnnurd by the Itrcrnt Tjnrnrale Orclouc. A oyclono which whizzed by Laramie, Wjo. , re ccntljr, anlillu the town tint causing a Ruod desl ut itdiiriiulon on the plnltm, whs seen to touch tho oirth onl throw up hii Iminnnno cloud of dint. A rniirliimin who paMcd thexpot soon afterwards found lhat It had scooped oat a big hoiln-ahaped hole as law as an ordinary cellar. The nboto Item, which I clip from laat evening's Woni i), Intercuts me a good deal, as I believe that the cloud of dust retimed to consisted of a gen tlinian named Dirty Murphy, who uacdtollvoln that nilxhhorhood. I wlnh that In tho Interests of science moroconld ho ascertained In relation to thta matter. Mr. Murphy was tho most obdurate cane of soil that I over beheld, und I hate every reason to bcllove that this cyclone has been look Iiik for htm In an aimless sort of wuj for somo years. At tho hoso tournaments In Wyoming competing comp mlcs used to tarn their attention townrds him with aqulrt that would cave Inapano of French pl&to Rlass, or melt down a 'dnbo honso In two nectlng moments, but I don't think they ever anccessfnlly opened Boiled Murphy's pores. I hojto that this cyclone has sncccodcd better ami that Mr. Murphy may shortly be heard of In Iowa In a healthy glow or In the capacity of a shower of flesh. Ho was a man who was much thought of among his neighbors, and his sins were rather thono of omission than of commission. Be fore this cyclone his heart was always reported to bo in the light place, and It Is to be hoped that It la still due north of his stomach and that hla other vitals are located relatively as thoy should be. 1 have not seen Mr. Murnhr for many years, but Ihacnotloat Interest In him. Tho last tlmo I saw him I shall not soon forget. Wo were thrown together under tho moat peculiar circumstance!. I was then sitting on the bench tho police bench at Laramie city and Mr. Murphy was Introduced tome tiy rollce Officer Larry Kee. While Mr. Feo was away looking for somo witnesses for tho prosocutlon Mr. Murphy asked me if I would ex cuso him for a moment while he stepped ont to get a copy of tho paper. I excused him and also gave him Ave cents with which to get mo a copy, but he did not come bsok. That is almost six years ago, and I now believe that ho did not Intend to again return. It Is possible that ho got hold of a continued story In tho paper that engrossed his attention, and that as soon as ha ttnds out who married the girl ho will return, but ! am all tho time cursed with doubts about It. Should this statement fall under his eye, I hope ho will communicate with me, stating hrlcny why wo havo been so long segregated. Dut If my cy clono theory bo correct and ha has been snatched hence by an atmosphcrlo disturbance In such a forthwith manner as to Blmply Icavo a soiled streak across the horizon, I will excuse him.

J From thtSf ronton ira.) Tnth, The New York World, which deserves to be re garded as the most successful newspaper now printed on this hemisphere, recognizes the. Impor tance, Influence and usefulness of tho evening Journal, and has decided to enter tho field of even Ing Journalism. Tho drat Issue of Tub Evbmino World appears to-day, and If It Is to be anything like Its morning namesako It will deserve and doubtless rerelvA a wldn wlromn In and about Gotham. Mr. Pulitzer evidently yearns for new Worlds to conquer, and It looks as If he would bo able to realize bis dearest desire. from IA AWar Journal, The New York Evenino World came ont yes terday afternoon, and made a success tho llko of which was never seen In the history of newspapers. There were 110,000 copies printed, and the demand far outran tho supply. Tho paper was taken from the delivery wagons so fast that the routes could not be gono over, and In the suburban regions there were no papers to be bad. The reputation of Tub MoRNlNO World makes It unnecessary to say anything In regard to the quality of this new venture.

'Twas tho Post Thomson who sang of " A lucky chnnco that oft decides tho fato of mighty monarchies." It was this somo chnnco, or rather a combination of chances, which havo decided tho fato of tho lost week of tho Antl-Povcrty I'air, at tho Madison Squaro Oarden, though nono of thoso who aro inter ested in tho success of tho cnterpriso aro willing to ocknowledgo that tho chances in this instanco nro lucky. Thoy rather eon sidor thorn as thoso of which Oth olio dis coursed to tho fair Dcsdcmona, "iMost disas trous." Unfiles, roulctto and random purchases, combined with tho desire of foolish rnnn to Sot n return of prollt fabulously in excess of 10 amount warranted by his investment, havo proved tho greatest sourco of incomo on this occasion, ns thoy have at every fair, and especially those gotten up for church char, ittes. Tho polico havo suppressed theso dovices this week and tho result is most noticeable. It was confidently and sorrowfully ox pected by Chairman Croasdale, of tho com mittoe having tho fair in charge, that tho re ceipts on Monday night, under tho now order of things, would fall off ono-hnlf, but ns a matter of fact they wcro two-thirds ns much as tho averago for nil previous nights. Thoy had " grasped tho skirts of happy ohanco," but thoy were hardly ablo to " breast tho blows of circumstance " inflicted by tho Society for tho Prevention of Vico, whoso officers placed their interdict upon wimi inuy vermeil gamming. Mayor Hewitt is held responsible by tho leaders for this interference with tho meth ods of tho fair, and thewomeu are particu larly bitter in their denunciation of him. Last night one of the ladies said to another: " I saw that sneaking dctectivo who mado all tho troublo for us around to-night." "Bad soron him I Whero is ho? Lot's mob him," replied tho ono addressed. " No; lot's vote him this picture of Mayor Howitt for his pains," said a third, pointing to tho donkey to which so many havo attempted to attach a caudal appondago with out success sinco tho fair was opened. Mayor Howitt is running a hot race with Archbishop Corrigun for tho 08-cont um brollu to bo voted to tho most unpop ular man in New York, because of his alleged interference. Tho Hev. Dr. Howard Crosby, Mgr. Preston and Joseph J. O'Donohuo have been added as candidates in this con test. To still further illustrate tho fooling that exists there aro soveral placards displayed. Ono on a pile of books, formerly disposed of by tho random purchaso scheme, reads: " In consequonco of tho tender consoienco of Mayor Howitt having been outraged by tho manifest success of our fair, wo nro com pelled to sell out, regardless of cost, lest His Honor's rest may be broken by tho sweeping triumph of our principles." An old lady camo into tho Garden at about 0 o'clock last night, and, stepping up to Mr. McCobo, at tho Fourteenth Assembly Dis. trict's booth, said t "I havo just como from Father Flood's fair, where I bought chances, and I'm going to buy chances hero. Wo'vo got as much right to Bell chances on things as Father Flood." Mr. McCabo said that thero nro a number of Catholio church fairs in progress in tho city and that Mr. Croasdalo had iu tho office tickets for 'lances bought at every ono of them. Dospito tho injunction from tho officials and tlio order of Mr. Orunsdalo, ono young lady deliberately and uublushingly offered clinurcs on n ten-cent pin-cushion at 23 cents npicca last night, and that with soveral po hcomen wandoritig about looking for viola tors of law in this respect.

JYom th Dtnvtr Republican, "Now you will bo surprised when I tell yon that tho ambition of every Hawaiian girl Is to be come fifteen years old and marry a Chinaman. The Islands aro full of Mongolians. They do a thriving business In opium, and aro considered eligible In every way. But tho American teachers arc trying to put a stop to this, and the only way they can do it la to provide other bnBbands to tako the placo of tho Chinamen, for If a Hawaiian girl is nut married very early In life sho soon goes 10 destruction. 80 tho American teachers, particu larly thoso from the boarding-schools fur glrla, take ocraslon when their voung ladles aro nearlng womanhood to call ut the schools for boys and arrange marriages betn cen natlv 0 young nun und women. This sounds harsh, but It is really salvation to the girls, an the marriages usually turn out well.

BOTH MR BTABB0ARDEB8 DEAD. Grief of the tittle French Woman Who En tertained Btoepel and Almee. Few of thoso present at tho funeral of Robert Btoepcl, tho musician, which toolc placo from tbe Little Church Bound tho Cor ner, noticed n plump llttlo Froneh woman, vory unpretentiously clad, who sat at tho back of the church. Tbo little lady shed many unseen tears and kept her handkerchief tightly pressed to her eyes. For many years the old physician had been her principal boarder, and though his appctito had been terribly fastidious, and poor littlo madamo had been forced to excr ciso hor utmost ingenuity to tempi his palato, she was ono of his most .hicero mournors. Tho day that llobert Htoopel wns buried, by a strange coincidence, brought tho news to this city of Mllo. AimcVs death in Paris. Tho littlo comio opera Binger wns also ono of Modame's boardors when in this city, and w ith ltobort Stoepel and Mario Aimco in her honso at the samo timo, tho Frenchwoman felt that she had accomplished something. Hlio had not heard of Aimde's death, how ever, whon sho reached tho Littlo Church Round tho Corner. Tho news was borne to her by a sallow littlo Italian flutist, known in tho theatrical orchestral world. Madamo was utterly overcome. Sho was French nnd sho was overwhelmingly super stitious. " Ah, mon fiiru I" sho cried, leaving tho church in haste, and sobbing as she walked down tho path leading to the street, " Aimde and Stoepel dead in ono week I what will happen. Oh 1 my unlucky boarding-houso I I am mined, ruined. Everyone dies. Oh 1 inonBiour, turning to tho flutist, nover let my boardors know of this catastrophe It would kill my trado." Tho flutist, with many promises tried to comfort the littlo woman, but in vain. Time, howevor, seems to havo accomplished what ho could not do, for yesterday sho was noticed marketing in a business-Iiko way, as if her ideas had returned to ragouts, salades and dcssortB.

People are wondering why The Evening World is published, and what is tho meaning of its exist ence T Wo will let the eecret out.

Every slnglo subscriber to TnE Wobld, morning or evening, will havo tho satisfaction of knowing that he Is an atom In the great aggregate which gives us the power to successfully fight evils and abuses and to protect the weak and oppressed one to make up tho many who mako Tub Wobld's influence and strength. Distinct is tho billows, ret on as th sea. The exlstenco of The Evenino World means, we also frankly confess, the gratification of ambi tion.
