H?L The hearts of the bankers of tho National

Hjf Unhappy banker! But there is consola-

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-

Lady Bbasszt, whoso death and burial at

ported, was an admirablo typo of English
woman. She boro a world-wide repute as a

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

helping to redeem deserts and making them
" bloom like the Garden of tho Sun." Thou

Two strikes, involving a large number of
printers and brass-workers, aro in progTeBs
in this city. The points at issue should not

extreme grievances justify a desperato con

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.

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

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.

Tho grape harvest iu the Hudson River

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

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
