H&C Time was when the railroads of Now
B England formed a sort of democracy. They
Eg' were admirably managed, and thero was a
H healthy degree of competition. But a decided
Kgk change has passed of lato over tho aspect of
HT affairs. It is a great game now between the
K& Boston and Maine, the Boston and Albany
B&- nd the Old Colony companies. Competing
Kjt Hues have been gobbled up and independent
B branches and connections absorbed in all
Hi1, directions. In several of the States the cor
NkL porntions virtually own the Legislature.

A prominent refiner said this morning that
undue publicity had embarrassed tho plans

This is a bit of unconscious confession. Of

Tho arrest of Gen. Bodlanoeh complicates
tho situation in France. Ho apparently
avails himself of every opportunity to pro
voke tho hostility of the Government. Ho
takes advantago of tho CAirxncL scandal to
boost himself again into tho rango of the
public eye. His crltioism of Gen. FxnaoN,
the Minister of War, was cortoinly unprece
dented and a breach of military discipline.

Tho scandal is certainly most discreditable
to tho War Department of Franco. But tho
promptness of the investigation and the

A poor Scotsman recently came under the
law, and was duly shippod back to the land
of mist and heath or. Mr. Kknxedy. thinks
that tho law equally applies to tho Bov. E.
Wallpolb Wabben, the importod rector of
Trinity Church.
The matter sooms to 'turn on whether tho
pastor is ailaborer. Now, it tho Bov. E.
Wallpole Warren is a good rootor, he is cor
tainly a laborer with on abundance of work
to do. Among other things he should labor
to roform tho harsh method of treating poor
tenants sometimes adopted by the agoutsof
tho Trinity corporation. But if he is not a
laborer, then he is a man of lelsuro, and not
a good rector. Mr, Kennedy seoms to have
clinched his argument on both sides.
A suit will be brought againBt tho Trinity
Corporation, and the penalty of $1,000 will
probably have to be paid. At all events, it
will do no harm to disoourage the importa
tion of clergymen. We have plenty of good
material of our own.

Over 111,000 copies of tho first ltaue were actually

From tht Botto IliralJ,
The new Evenino World of New York City con
talna a large amount of entertaining news, pre
sented In a highly attractive manner. Until qulto
recently the evenlug field has been one which New
York Journalists havo looked upon as hardly worth
cultivating ; that Is to say, the great newspapers
have been all murnlng papers, and the newspapers
Issued In the afternoon have had but a relatively
Btnall circulation. The enormous circulation In
stantly gained by the World may bo due to the
fact that previous efforts by New York Journalists
to build up the circulation of an evening paper
have not been properly directed, and that thero la
an Immense field there that has been for a long
timo waiting tor the proper cultivator.
From Tv'day't II Frogrttto Itato-Amtritano.
When Mr. Joseph Pulitzer prupnetor aud editor
of The World on the 10th of May, lShg, bought
that Journal from William 11. Hurlbcrt, as
a representative of a society of capi
talists, Us circulation only reached 87,S3 copies.
From 1S83 to 1BST (that la lu four years and a few
months) tho 8I,S3 copies had grown with marvel
ous and amazing geometrical progression to S10.OOO
of a dally edition, not to mention the special Sun
day edition, which reachca 110,000.
Many causes contributed to this success the
lightning-like quickness Ingathering news, brill
iant reporting of events, telegrams, an extraor
dinary quantity of reading matter, battles
fought In the name of the people and
of publlo morula atfainst Aldermeu, the
kings of Uuante, butlneaa, Ac. all
of which battlea were won, the culprits for the
moat part landing In Sing Sing; good business,
management, and the constant aspiration gained
and maintained, to serve and battle for the people
with earnest sincerity. And all this la
owing to the tact, Bhrcwducss and daring
enterprise of Mr. Pulitzer, whose Iron will trans
fuses Itself into every part of his gigantic enter
prlae, from the managing editor to the omcc-boy,
all of whom are most liberally paid, but at the
same time subjected to military discipline. In
short, Tub World la a financial and political
power such aa has rarely been known In Journal
ism, And now Mr. Pulitzer, not satisfied with the
morning World, has Issued au Evenino World,
which, judging from U success on the first day,
will without effort be a worthy offspring of the
morning edition, and will easily eclipse its evening
contemporaries. The first number appeared on
Monday and reached a circulation of 111,110

Tho Castlo Gordon Committeo of the Emi

Thursday afternoon, at which matters only
of routine importance, it was said, wero dis
cussed. Mrs. Carolino Gasser, who keeps
tho Hotel Ruth, at 18 Greenwich street, ap
peared before tho Commissioners and in a
vory pathctlo manner implored them
to Temovo the embargo which they
four weeks ago placed upon her house.
Vainly she has tried during all these weeks
to have her difficulties with the Commission
ers settled amicably, but at last, seeiug that
her business and livlihood wore being mali
ciously tor away from her, slio humiliated
herself and made her appeal in person to tho
Commissioners. They, howover, remained
obstinate, and rofusod to rescind their
order denying her agent admission to Castlo
Four weeks ago two Arabs arrived at Castlo
Gordon. Thoy woro destinod for Omaha,
Neb., and not having sufficient money to nay
their railroad faro over tho pool lines, they
wore cast nsido by this grasping and illegal
combination which holds Bway over Castle
Garden. Tho runner who solicits hoarders for
the Ruth saw them and persuaded them to go to
his houso, agreeing to obtain them tickets for
Omaha outside the Garden considerably loss
less than asked for by tho pool. The man
agreed, and, after paying Barnoy'Biglin's ex
press agont 90 cents to take thrco buudles to
tho hotel, they loft tho Gardon in company
with tho runner. The following day the
runner took tho Arabs to tho office of the Old
Dominion Railroad, on Bowling Green, and
obtained their tickets to Omaha for $23.75
each. Tho rato chargod by tho pool in
tho Garden is $20, a saving to
the immigrants of $2.25. This
obtaining of tickets by runners or agencies
not within the pool is objected to by tho
Commissioners. Tho runner, of course, re
ceives a commission from tho company, but
notwithstanding that in many cnseB it is a
decided saving to tho immigrants tho Com
missioners deem it a pernicious practice.

Garden, preparatory to going West, an old

At last, seeing that no redress could be

do not think the Commissioners of Emigra

any immigrant who has come to our house.
Since our expulsion my business has fallen
away to olmost nothing, and unless the Com

Tho placo was dwcadfullr cwowded, and it

Trying to Get Hold of the Itett or Inoffensive
The steamer City of Pueblo, just in from
Panama, has landed a Bmall army of South
and Central Americans in New York. Mr.
M. O'Dwyer, of Rio Cuarto, in tho Argentine
Republic, comes from a country about which
tho nverogo New Yorker knows little, but
in which, if ho only knew it, he
has a deep interest. Large quantities
of fluid extract of beof are shipped hero
by Mr. O'Dwyor's neighbors on tho pampas,
or great plains, which stretch towards the
Cordilleras from the wonderful city of Buenos
Ayres. Toxans ship their beef fresh-killed,
and the South American cowboys and ranch
ers, who have Rio Cuarto for their headquar
ters, hope some day to compete in that way
in the metropolitan meat markets of the
world. But just now they can only export
the concentrated extract, hoofs, horns, hides
and tallow of the countless herds on their
great ranges.
Rio Cuarto is 200 miles from Buenos Ayres,
the capital and seaport. The people there
take a lively interest in the peril of their
neighbors, the Peruvians, at the hands of the
Chilians. They think it natural for Peru's
cause to find friends in New York. Chili,
they say, is undoubtedly trying to absorb
Peru, having already gotten a big slice off
her southern territory and all of Bolivia's
coast-line. But the Argentine Republicans
don't think the rest of tho civilized world is
going to acquiesce in Chili's grab-game.
