H?L The hearts of the bankers of tho National HHp Association now in session at Pittsburg must ff bave'boon touched by the appeal of Proal- HBi' dent Xiooax O. Mcsiuy yesterday. IBtp Mr. Mubbat drew a pathetio pleturo of the HR deplorable condition of tho banker as com- ); Tpared with that of the workingman. Labor- & ere. Beys President Mcbbat, received 91 a & day wages twenty-fire years ago. Kow they HWl'MoeiTO an average of 92, and with that can fr.'' Ifcayrnoro than Q5 would purohaso thon. ER J How is it with the banker t Alas I he H& '"'gets a lower rate of interdst for his money " Kp '&ow than he got in the good old times, "his HHrot living is mon expensive, his wants are in- Bt OTeasing, the demands upon him for charities H(& greater, and his happiness is not aug- Bf-i Stented in a relativo proportion." Hjf Unhappy banker! But there is consola- K;, tion in knowing that at any moment ho can K abandon his institution and take to honest 4 labor. Doubtless he could find manyaphil H,'i snthroplo laborer willing to change places HSu with him despite his relatively unaugmented BHU. happiness. THE BAEEE8' TEBEIBLE BETEHQE. E;' Disgusted with the law's delay in duly Br punishing the policemen for the Union Hp Bqnare outrage, the Executive Committee of Kfr Bakers' Union No. 1 have decided to take V$- matters in their own hands and score a HEa terrible and unprecedented revenge. They K Itave sternly resolved " to extend no more HKV favors to policemen when they seek refuge in HNL the bake-shops on cold nights." Hk No longer will the bluecoats be able to Hy; regale themselves with the succulent mid- K night bun. No longer can they warm thorn- H selves before the furnaces and literally K sample the doughnuts piping hot from tho K& simmering caldron.

Tho constitutional authority, Mr. O'Baixx holds, removes tho appointments from tho oontrol of tho Logislature. Tho BtaU Constitution provides that every mala oltlien shall bo entitled to vote for all offioers elected by the people. But the Legis lature says the citizen shall not vote unless ho has previously registered in aooordance with the State law. If the Legislature can prescribe qualifications for voters, surely they can provide qualifications for offlco holders. Tho Attorney-General's opinion seems to be baBed more on politics than on law. THE iniOHELLSTOWH HUBDEB& The Inspector, sergeants and onstablos who shot down the people aOhe Mitchells, town meeting were yesterday found guilty of murder.

But what a farce the Jury finding Is I When it became certain what the verdict must bo tho men wero removed from tho placo and transferred to some unknown locality by order of tho Government. Tho Coronor Issued warrants for their arrest and declared tho removal " illegal, impropor and uncon stitutional." No one supposes that tho war rants will be executed or the guilty men punished. now long can a Government exist-whlch defies its own'.Gonstitution and laws, protects murderers, degrades tho bonoh, procures tho perjury of witnesses and jurors and seeks to coerce a whole people ? Justioe for Ireland retributive justice for England I SEF0SE THE BATBAFB. Tho caso of tho Swedish woman, J cm, de tained at Castlo Gordon but promptly re leased by the Collector when appeal was made to him, evinces the persistency of the Satraps in wrong-doing. Tho case was par allel in essontial respects to that of Imojxbd Jonson. Exposure has no effect upon Stxpuxmsok and his " ine-toos." Official rolmkeg are uu. hcoded. The Commissioners show no Blgns of repentance. They aro beyond the reach of reform. Depose the Satraps without dolay. HEBOIBU TJH iOWB TO FAME. Lady Bbasszt, whoso death and burial at sea from her favorite yaoht Sunbeam is re ported, was an admirablo typo of English woman. She boro a world-wide repute as a yachtswoman, adventurous and intrepid, treading unknown seas and remote arohi pelagoes with the spirit of a seventeenth cen tury navigator. But in phrasing due tribute to Lady Bras sey.let us not forgot tho great army of woman pioneers, unknown to fame but equally de serving it. Voyaging in a magnificent yacht with pilots and sailing masters and all tho luxuries that wealth affords even upon the sea involves a small measure of the hardi hood and courage required uf the mothers, the sisters and the daughters who for a cen tury or more havo been invading tho track less wildernesses of our Western domain, helping to redeem deserts and making them " bloom like the Garden of tho Sun." Thou sands of these noble women are still per forming their hardy and adventurous rOlo upon the far Western frontier. The heroines I of this world are for the most part unhouored and unsung. ABB1TBATE THE BTBIKE8. Two strikes, involving a large number of printers and brass-workers, aro in progTeBs in this city. The points at issue should not result iu long and costly struggles. Only extreme grievances justify a desperato con test. Prompt and reasonable concessions on both sides would be vastly better than inev itable loss for all conoerned, with a victory that might be radical, but would probably.be only temporary. Meanwhile tho Stato Board of Arbitration is " awaiting developments." It ought to be assisting developments. Thero is altogether too much passivity and incompetenco about thU Board. Let it do something and justify its existence. PEOPLE AOADIBT POLITIOIAHB. The people of New York want good gov ernment. It is not to their interest that pub Ho moneys should be wasted, criminals escape punishment and the judicial ermine bo soiled. They are injured when corrupt and vonal men are sent to the Stato Legislature and ig norance and dishonesty hold control of tho Board of Aldermen. When the people, with considerable una nimity, coll for the nomination of particular candidates for office, it is fair proof that the men they favor are to bo trusted. The popu lar demand for Mr. Mabttns for Judge of Sessions and Mr. Nicoll, for District-Attorney points them out as the fittest persons for those important positions. If a fow political leaders who control tho nominating conven. tiona do not want them, it is because they de sire to elect men not more valuable to tho people, but more useful to themsolves. HO TJBE FOB TH1E WO&D. In some of the syoophantio addresses to the President in tho West he is referred to as the " ruler" ofjthis'coantry. Wo have no "rulor " in this Bepublio. Ho disappeared from American soil with the surrender of Corn, wollis. The people are their own masters. The President is no " rulor," but merely tho publlo agent. The word is an importation. It belongs with tho King's English. It is ob solete in America, Take it out of our vocabulary. Wo have no use for it hero. HOHEBT LABOB. The Knights of Labor in their General Assembly have rejected a resolution of sym. pathy with tho condemned Anarchists. This is a wise proceeding. Honost labor is natu rally conservative. It seeks all the time to bettor its condition! to lay up a oompetenoy for a family I to secure a homo and coJort- able surroundings! to educate its children and fit them for honorable and prosperous careors. How, thou, can tho true Knights of Labor have any sympathy with those who would overthrow law and order and render the competency of tho workingman as inso oure as the wealth of tho millionaire f Tho United Labor party is strong in this State because it dlsolalmed all association with the Socialists and rofused to recognize thorn in its nomination of candidates. Labor is tho bulwark of thi Republic t anarchy is its ruin. John J. O'Ubien has passed ovor to tho majority. He has joined Health Officer Smitii, Quarantine Commissioners PtATT, Nichols and Judd, Satrap Ktwuenson and his five associate Commissioners of Emigra tion, eight Port Wardens and other offlolals, all of whom are "hold-overs." And ho will hold on as long as he can. ' Ono fruit of the Indignation of tho Dart mouth students over President Babtlett's arbitrary action iu tho recent hazing affair was tho appearauco of a donkey in the Presi dential pulpit yosterday morning. Tho undergraduates considered it a Babtlxtt pair. Is it not significant that James G. Blaine should lead Henbx Gkoboe six votes as first choice f orProsldent at tho Anti-Povorty Fair, and that Gov. Hill should beat Prosidont Cleveland ISO to 25. John J. O'Bbiem sayss " I won't bo driven out of politics." How much meaning ,is somotimos compressed in a littlo sentence. Like othors of his ilk, O'Bbiek ovidontly con siders " politics " synonymous with oflleo holding. . Quarantine Commissioner Platt follows Jacob Siiabp's lead. He asks for a stay of proceedings whilo ho appeals from Justice Inoallb'b decision against changing tho place for the trial of tho suit of oustorfrom Albany to New York; Lebteb B. FAULXNEn is justly held on tho charge of wrecking the Danavlllo bank. What has bocomo of Wabneb, Wobk, TonET and tho unindlcted rascals who helped Feb dinand Wabd and Fisn to wreck the Marine Bonk f Mr. Depew suggests that tho Amerioan pooplo may conclude to put a man of brains in tho White House next year. Mr. Depew is certainly himself a man of brains. Of course tho Western Union stockholders indorsed tho aotion of the Western Union management. Whon Mr. Gould bows before tho mirror his reflection usually does the same. Tho Harlem Domocrats wantMABTnns for Sessions Judge and Nicoll for District-Attorney. So do good Domocrats and good Republicans all over the city. FIGS AND THISTLES. A red-Dot meteor came humming through tho air at Mew Htnyrna, Fla., the other day and startled Uarry Bums, who was ashing from a boat la the creek. A resolution has bten Introduced In the City Council ot Philadelphia declaring It a nuisance for passengers to expectorate on the floor of street railroad cars, and providing that a penalty of $9 be Imposed In each case.

Columbia Sophomores Meek n Lambs Would a Illsh Hot House Them t For the first time in tho history of Colum bia Collogo every Freshmau was allowed to carry a cane unmolested to-day. Horetoforo such an act would have inBtautly invited a fierce attack by the Sophomores. To-day the Freshmen, having previously notified the Sophomores of their intention, all presented themselves with enormous canes. The largest sticks were carried by the slimmest youths. They went boldly to tho check room, aud Curtiss, of '91, presented tho challenging cane to be checked. Meun whilo '01 made tho college ring with " '91 wants blood." No Sophomore offered to grab the cano as it was passed over the counter, and it still remains in chock under the name of Curtiss totheclory of '91. The inaction in the Sophomores ia due to tho resolution passed by them last week by a voto of twenty .threo to twenty, not be the attacking party in any cane-rush. But how much provocation they can stand after so close a voto has not been determined. It is thought by some that a Freshman with a high hat would bring on a pitched battle. The President commends the action of the Sophomores. The fact that Snowden was bo injured in the rush last year that he subse quently died, hod its influence. HONORS TO PAINE AND BURGESS.

Many prominent Italians, both In England and Italy, have taken an Interest In the American Exhibition at Earl's Court. While It Is not likely that the Italian Government will of ficially recognize the exhibition, they certainly ap prove of the scheme and will probably further It by lending certain public collections ot work of art. A novel and Interesting entertainment Is contemplated for the Wild West arena by way of a display of ancient and modern Italian sports, and It Is probable that on the ground now occu pied by ino Indian village will be erected an old Italian street, representing various Btyles of Italian design.

The Yield I-orae nnd the QuaUty of the Fruit Excellent. Tho grape harvest iu the Hudson River Valley is at white heat these pleasant October dayB. 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 Itiver grower lost $8,000 worth of grapes by one uight's frost. The best of Concords can be bought of street dealers around Washington Market for threo and a half cents a pound. Gntawbas aro a triflo higher. Malagas are worth 15 cents. Vi'holesnlo dealers are unablo to estitnato tho size of this year's crop. The quantity of grapes sent to this city by both cars and steamboats is simply enormous. The best ond cheapest way to buy grapes is by the basket. Tho purchaser should not fail to tilt tho basket 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 iu price. Late in the season, when tho harvest is over, the price ruus up as high as eight and ten cents. For tho next two weeks prices probably will remain at 2Ji or 3 cents,, with unimportant fluctuations. Asa rule, the Hudson Itiver grapes aro in excel lent condition. POINTS ABOUT BIG POLICEMEN.
