The constitutional authority, Mr. O'BnrxK holds, romoves tho appointments from the control of tho Legislature. Tho Btato Constitution provides that every male citizen shall be entitled to vote for all officers elected by the people. But the Legis lature says tho citizen shall not votounloss he has previously registered in accordance with tho Btato law. If the Legislature can prcscribo qualifications for voters, surely they can provido qualifications for office holders. Tho Attorney-General's opinion seems to be based more on politics than on THE HITCHELL8T0WH HUBDEB& Tho Inspector, sergeants and onstables who shot down tho people? ntjtho Mitohells town meeting woro yesterday found guilty of murder. The vordlot of the jury was in strict accordance with the ovidence. Tho police wcro clearly shown to be murderers. Bnt what a fnrco tho jury finding is I When it became certain what the verdict must be tho men wero removed from the place and transferred to some unknown locality by order of the Government. Tho Coroner issued warrants for their arrest and doclared tho removal " illegal, improper and uncon stitutional." No one supposes that the war rants will bo executed or tho guilty men punished. Flow long can a Government exist which defies its ownOonstltution'and laws, protects murderers, degrades tho bonch, procures the perjury of wituosses and jurors and socks to coerco a whole people ? Justice for Ireland retributive justlco for England 1 DEPOSE THE BATBATS. The case of tho Swedish woman, Jem, de tained at Castle Garden but promptly re leased by tho Collector when appoal was made to him, evinces the persistency of the Satraps in wrong-doing. The case was par allel in essential respects to that of Imojebd Jonboh. Exposure has no effect upon Btzmiekbom and his " mo-toos." Official rebukes are un heeded. Tho Commissioners show no signs of repentance They are beyond the reach of reform. Depose tho Satraps without delay. vi HEEOISH UNKNOWN TO FAME. Lady Bbassst, whose death and burial at sea from her favorite yacht Sunbeam is re ported, was an admirable typo of English woman. She boroa world-wide repute as a yachtswoman, adventurous and intrepid, treading unknown was and remote archi pelagoes with tho spirit of a seventeenth cen tury navigator. But in phrasing due tribute to Lady Bras sey,let us not forget tho great army of woman plonoors, unknown to famo but equally de serving It. Voyaging in a magnificont yacht with pilots and Balling masters and all the luxuries that wealth affords even upon tho sea involves a small iuoohuto of tho hardi hood and courago roqulred of the mothers, tho sisters and the daughters who for a cen tury or more havo been invading the track less wildernossos of our Western domain, helping to rodeom deserts and making them " bloom like tho Garden of tho Sun." Thou sands of theso noblo nomcn aro still per forming their hardy and adventurous rdle upon tho far Western frontier. Tho heroines of this world aro for tho most part unhonorcd and unsung. ABBITBATE THE BTBIKEB. Two striken, involviug a large number of printers and brass-workers, are in progress in this city. The points at issue should not result in long and costly struggles. Only extreme grievances justify a desperate con test. Prompt and reasonable concessions on both sides would be vastly hotter than inev itable loss for all concerned, with'.a victory that might be radical, but would probably.be only temporary. Meanwhile the State Board of Arbitration is " awaiting developments." It ought to bo assisting developments. Thore is altogether too much passivity and incompetenco about this Board. Let it do something and justify its existeuce. PEOPLE AQADfBT POUTI0IAK3. The people of Now York want good gov ernment. It is not to their interest that pub. lio moneys should be wasted, criminals escape punishment and tho judicial cnuino bo soiled. They are injured when corrupt and venal men aro sent to tho State Legislature and ig norance and dishonesty hold control of tho Board of Aldermen. When tho people, with considerable una nimity, call for the nomination of particular candidates for office, it is fair proof that the men they favor are to bo trusted. The popu lor demand for Mr. Mabtine for Judge of Sessions and Mr. Niooix for District-Attorney points them out as tho fittest persons for those important positions. If a few political leaders who control the nominating conven tions do not want them, it is becauno thoy do sire to elect men not moro valuablo to the people, but more useful to themselves. MO USE FOB THIS WOBD. In somo of tho sycophantio addresses to the President in tho West he is referred to as the " ruler" ofithis'country. Wo have no "ruler " in this Republic. lie disappeared from American soil with the surrender of Corn. yrallis. Tho pcoplo aro their own masters. Tho President is no " ruler," but merely the public agent. The word is an importation. It belongs with the King's English. It is ob solete in America. Toko it out of our vocabulary. Wo have no uso for it hero. HONEST LAEOK. The Knights of Labor in their General Assembly have rejected a resolution of sym pathy with the condemned Anarchists. This is a wise proceeding. Honest labor is natu rally conservative. It seeks all the time to better its condition! try lay up a competency for a family) to secure a home and comfort- able surroundings to educate its children and fit them for honorablo and prosperous careers. IIow, then, can the true Knights of Labor have any sympathy with those who would overthrow law and order and render the competency of tho workingman as inso cure as tho wealth of tho millionaire ? The United Labor party is strong in this Btato becauso it disclaimed all association with the Socialists and refused to recogntzo them in its nomination of candidates. Labor is the bulwark of the Bopublio ; anarchy is its ruin. JonN J. O'BnizN has pnsed over to the majority. He has joined Health Officer Smith, Quarantine "Commissioners Platt, Nichols and Jddd, Batrap Btzmiehson and his five assoclato Commissioners of Emigra tion, eight Port Wardens and other officials, all of whom aro "hold-overs." And ho will hold on as long as ho can. One fruit of tho indignation of the Dart mouth studontu over Presldont Bartuctt's arbitrary action in the recent hazing affair was tho appearance of a donkey in tho Prosi dential pulpit yesterday morning. Tho undergraduates considered it a Babtutt pair. Is it not significant that Jamxs G. Blaine should lead Henbt Geoboe b!x votes as first choice forPresidcnt at the Anti-Poverty Fair, and that Gov. Hill should beat President Cleveland ISO to 25. John J. O'BniEN sayst " I won't be driven out of politics." now much meaning is sometlmos compressed in a little sentence. Liko others of his ilk, O'Brien evidently con siders " politics " synonymous with office-holding. Quarantine Commissioner Pi.att follows Jacob Siiabf's lead. Ho asks for a stay of proceedings whilo ha appeals from Justice Inoalls's decision against changing the plaoe for tho trial of tho suit of ouster from Albany to Now York. Lesteb B.

Mr. Detew suggests that the American people may conclude to put a man of brains in the White House next year. Mr. Detew is certainly himself a man of brains. Of course, the Western Union stockholders indorsed the aotion of the Western Union management. When Mr. Gould bows before the mirror his reflection usually docs the same. The Harlem Democrats wantMABTixx for Sessions Judge and Niooll for District-Attorney. So do good Democrats and good Republicans all over the city. FIGS AND THISTLES.

For a rather tardy colebratlon of the Queen's Ju bilee at Denby Dale, England, tho bakers of tho village recently constructed an Immense meat pic, which measured eight feet across, was two feet deep and weighed 4, WO pounds.

The latest and one of the best of the New York evening papers is Tin Evknino World, which made Its first appearance yesterday afternoon. It Is a bright and newsy sheet which will doubtless have a large sale. From IX. Attanla Con.Utulton, The New York World has started an evening paper. It will doubtless bo a success. People may ssy what they please about Editor Pulitzer, but he seems to know Just what tho average newspaper reader wants, and he never falls to print It. IFroml ho Lyntkhurg Virginian, . The first number of the Now York Evening World Is to band. In appearance It is an exact counterpart of Its morning progenitor, except that It has fewer pages.

Mr. Joseph Pulitzer yesterday entertained over three thousand newsboys at a theatre party as a memorial of the success of the new Evknino World. Mr.Pulltzer and his staff seem to know Just where and when to take hold of things to make sensations which shall be pleasurable and profit ableand at tho same time, and all the time, boom the World. From th Jio.ton Glob, Although the first sheets of The Evening World In New York did not loare the presses until 8. SO r. H. , the first dsy's sales aggregated over 110,000 copies. Everybody expected much of Tux Evkn ino World, but It proved to be a better paper even than was anticipated. We hope and believe the World, with this enormously increased power, will keep Its promise to fight always for the Right and against the Wrong, and wo wish there were more papers Uko It. Ifrom th Albany iTnlom Following tho fashion, the New York World last evening Issued for the first time an evening edition, and as Tns World never undertakes any thing without a purposo, It Is sufficient to say that Its latest move is one In the right direction.

And It Is through the afternoon dally pa pers only that tho news of the day Is reported. From th Buffalo Courlor. The New York'.EvsNiNa World springs Into the arena of Journalism fully equipped for a strong light for existence. A six-page paper, full of news and with an abundance of advertising, It Is a mir acle of cheapness at Its price of one cent. It pro poses to bo truthful and Independent In all things and to support Justlco, humanity and reform.

Everyono who entered Madison Bquaro Garden last night was presented with a cir cular to the effect that, as tho sale of the " random purchaso tickets " had been forbid den by tho police, the articles offered as prizes would be sold at auction and tho pro coeds distributed pro rata among tho ticket holders. In this circular tho.action of Mayor Hewitt, which caused the polico to forbid tho salo of lottery tickets, was characterized as an effort "to prevent, if possiblo, the making of a largo sum of money for the campaign fund of the United Labor party." Tho managers also state that they " rely upon tho great moss of people, who love fair play, to givo tho fair so generous a support during tho remaining woek of its existence that thoy will defeat this persecution." Whatever may havo boon tho gloom on Monday night, or tho sorrow on Tuesday, there was certainly no lack of mirth at tho fair last night. The hosts of pretty girls, who, after the abolition of the raffles, had been wandering about as if at a loss what to do, wero busily occupied in selling paokages of tea and coffee or with a Rmllo that was sure to bring out tho pennies, asking for n slight contribution " for tho sake of Anti-Poverty." The spaces in front of the booths were well filled with purchasers and lookers-on. At tho upper end of the hall ono could havo two dances a waltz and a square dance with his "best girl" for ton cents. A goodly number availed themselves of thiB privilege, while many others watched the giddy ones from tho tiers of seats sur rounding the hall. A tin box stands near the entranee, and into that box tho managers claim that about 19.000 of the purchased chances in tho lotteries havo been dropped since tho sales wero stopped. The mimic horse race (a species of wheel of fortune) was once more transferring dimes from tho pockets of tho masses to tho funds of the United Labor party. up stairs in tho room reserved for theatri cals, a comody entitled "From Pumpkin Bidge," was being rehearsed. This play should have been presented last night, but owing to the tardiness of a few of those who are to take part in learning their lines, tho managers were obliged to postpone it until the last of tho week and substitute tho follow ing programme : Piano solo Miss Annie O'Neill Recitation " Iloratlus at the Bridge".. Mr. Walsh Negro dialect selection, " Shlb ob Faith. " Miss Gleason Recitation' ' Tho Polish Boy "... .Miss Elva Boyle Dissertation" Womans Suffrage.

According to the votes, Arch bishop Corrigan is still the most unpopular man in New York City, with Mayor Hewitt seoond. Dr. Ourran heads the list of popu lar clergymen, Dr. Burtsell and Hugh O. Pentecost, being about a hundred votes be him. TnE Wokld still ranks as the best nowspaper. Perhaps one of the most notiooable features of the fair is the number of young men who file in every evening. It takes one but a short time to perceive what attracts them there the numerous and extremely pretty girls, of course ; for, by dropping a nickel into one of tho vases carriod by tho young ladies, one is sure of obtaining a smile from and, if care is used, of exchanging a few brief sentences with the holdor of tho vaso, In ordor to dlsposo of tho goods not al ready Bold, auctions will begin to-morrow night and continue throughout the week. The fair will close noxt Monday night with a vocal and instrumental concert and ball. Tho managers promise to make it a very pleasing entertainment. o TIIEY LOOK IN AT TILE WIND0W Some Characteristic of PblladelphlanaWho Come to New York. A Philadelphia man walked along upper Broadway in company with a New York friend lato yesterday afternoon. There was nothing particularly strange about this ex cept, perhaps, tho fact that had not the Phila dclphian been presonttho Now Yorker would have taken a hock. " You New York people are always in too much of a hurry," said tho Phlladelphian in that subdued and leisurely tone of voice so characteristic of his kind. " In Philadelphia it is different far different," " I havo heard so," said the New Yorker, with tho f aiutost suspicion of irony. "Yes," continuod the Philadelphlan, "you aro in too much of a hurry. You don't have timo oven to look in at tho shop windows." "Shop window si " said tho Now Yorker, somevt hat aghast. "Do Philadolphians make n practice of looking in at shop windows ?" ''Oh, cortainly. All Phlladelphlons of culture do. It indicates leisuro and all that sort of thing, you know." " Yes ?" said the New Yorker, with an ox aspornting rising inflection. Oh, I'm well enough aware," his friend went on, "that you New Yorkers despise us for it as beiug provincial, you know, and I've oi en hoard a threat mndo by frionds of mino to havo it announced in tho papers that ' Mr. Vissahickon Jones has arrived in the city to spoud a few days looking in at tho Broadway shop windows., Very funny, was it not? I assuro you, wo Philadelphlans don't mind. Thoy are conscious of their social standing, and they will look in at shop windows if it Buits them." " And besides," sold the Now Yorker, "it helps advertise tho shops. Let us go around to the art department." p llenovntlns; the White House. IFrowtnn Fxtkang, The White House rooms havo been dressed In their winter costumes, and everything Is now In readiness for tho return of the President and Mrs. Cleveland. The carpets have all been laid, cur tains hung, the furniture covers removed and the rooms thoroughly cleaned. Very little painting or repairing has been done, as extenslvo Improve ments In this respect were recently made. New carpets have been laid In the East room and Blue parlor and some of the bedroom furniture has been rcoovered. A new central sofa or divan for the centre of the East room has been ordered by Col. Wilson and will be here In about a month. It will be upholstered In old-gold plush to match the other furniture of the room. The exterior of the White House will not bo painted, as this was done only last year, and It Is also necessary about once in foul years. It Is probable, however, that the Fire Department will bo requested soonto send up an engine to wash off the dust that has collected on the front portico during the summer.

A paragraph printed In this column on Monday In regard to the Tuxedo Club and the propoaedjn-j crease In the number of members hss attracted widespread attention.

The Yield Lorsc and the Quality of the Fruit Excellent. The grape harvest in the Hudson Biver Valley is at white heat these pleasant Octobor days. Every grape-grower in the valley is in a fever of dread lest the frost spoil his crop. Last year the harvest was late and tho frost early, and as a consequence much damage was done. One Hudson Bivcr grower lost $8,000 worth of grapes by one night's frost. The best of Concords can be bought of street dealers around Washington Market for three and a half cents a pound. Catawbas aro a trifle higher. Malagas are worth 16 cents. Wholesale dealers are unable to estimate the size of this year's crop. The quantity of grapes sent to this city by both cars and steamboats is simply enormous. The best and cheapest way to buy grapes is by the basket. The purchaser should not fail to tilt the bosket on end to inspect tho quality of the grapes. In this way there is no danger of buying green or mildewed fruit. ' Good Concords rarely fall below three cents in price. Late in the season, when the harvest fs over, the price runs up as high as eight and ten cents. For the next two weeks prices probably will remain at 1 or 3 cents,, with unimportant fluctuations. Asa rule, the Hudson lliver grapes are in excel lent condition. " . TUck Pay. " From Frntnty (Dak.) MtttngtrA While Judge Tracy was on the circuit, going from court, his trace broke. The Judge spent a half hour trying to mend It, but to no purpose.

"Why," said the Judge, "could I not have thought of that t" "Well, marster," said the negro, "don't you know some folks Is naturally smarter than t'otherst" "That's so," said the Judge. "What shall I pay you for fixing my trace J" "Well, marster, &o cents will do," said the negro. "Fifty cents 1" said the Judge. "You wero not five minutes at It.
