and substitute Nicoll for Fzllows. And
the time is growing short.
The popular approval of the Anarchists'
doom is serious, not revongeful.
There is no cruelty in tho purpose of law,
however cruel its exeoution may sometimes
be. Its object is the protection of society.
The vory fact that numbers of persons con.

in inciting men to raurdor, and were justified
in striking at tho foundations of American
institutions, proven that an oxnmplo to tho
contrary is needed. Tho serpent's brood is
best crushed when it is young.
Tho burning issue of this campaign is
whethor or not the prosecution of Boodlors
shall be pushed.
The resolutions adopted at the Fxllows
meeting last night utterly ignore this all-lm.
portant question.
Was it oversight or Intent ? It matters
not. The omission, from whatever cause, is
damning in Its significance.
The People will take no risk of further
omissions of this sort. They will put a man

" No Quarter to Publio Thieves."
Nklltji Blt's mission to the Insane Asylum
on Blaokwell's Island is bearing good fruit.
The Grand Jury, having investigated tho
oondltion of the institution, makes a pre.
sentment coinciding with the substantial
oharges in the romarkable report by Tnx
Wobld's representative.
It is urged that the patients should have
better medical attendance, better nurses, bet
ter food and hotter bathing and other facili
ties. To attain these reforms a more liberal
approprtatlon is necessary and should be
given without hesitation.
New York can bear her proper burdens
without whimpering. Starve out tho Bood
lers, brush off tho leeohos, stop all tho leaks,
but deal with liberal hand with the poor and
helpless wards of the city.
This is a cause espoused by Tux Wobli
with enterprise and persistence. It is an
other sample of " nowspaper bossism."
Bo says the weathercock supporter of tho
Bosses : " Politios has no memories."
The nomination of Jonit B. Fxllows could
havo boon made only by men who believe this
doctrino. They must have relied upon tho
people's forgetf ulness of their character and
of his record or they would nover have com
mlttod suoh a monumental blundor.
Is it truo ? Have the people forgotten how
Fxllowb holpod to re-elect Twxkd to the Sen.
ato after tho boss thief was branded for tho
Penitentiary? Ilnvo they forgotten that
Fxllows was the Bing's mouthploce in the
State Convention, and denounced Tildkn and
O'CoMon as his supporters now denounce
Nicoll ? Have thoy forgotten that Fxllows
has boen tho ready tool of every Boss, from
Swxxnx to Powxn ?
Has " politics no memories ?" The election
will show.
Mayor Hewitt has repeatedly deolared that
ho had nothing to do with tho county
It now appears on his own showing that he
had a very lively and consplouous finger In
the pie. Ho says: "If anybody was re
sponsible for the seloction of FiTzaxBALD, I
am the man." That the rejection of Niooll
and tho nomination of Fxllows was prac
tically decided by "ME," is the inevitable
conclusion from tho Mayor's own letter and
These statements don't "jibe." To put it
very mildly, Mr. Hewitt's jewel of con
sistency is much bodlmmed by servloe in a
bad cause.
There is much disappointment beoause tho
morning Ananias did not give a full report of
the round-up of officeholders in behalf of
Fxllows last night. There was a little hiss
ing episode overlooked that has a direct bear
ing upon the question of " treason " to the
" One of the brightest and ablest young
men in New York a man of very creat
promise, who would make an excellent District-Attorney."
So said Mayor Hewitt of
Dz LiMcxx Nicoll on Oct. E. So say the
people now. 80 they will vote on Tuesday.
Nicoll sends a $250 check for the Demo
cratic State ticket. The desperate County
Bosses are scheming to administer quite a
different sort of a cheok through the medium
of a Deal.
There is not a fair-minded man in this city
who doubts that the Labor party is legally
entitled to its Inspectors. Then stop this
miserable legal farce and let fair play prevail.
The crocodiles, who are weeping " for tho
ruined political future of Dx Lamcxt Nicoll,"
will have a chance to cheer up next Tuesday.

o'clock to hear him. He has ongagonionts
to-night to speak in the Twenty-first, Twenty-second
and Twenty-third Districts. Dr.
MoGlynn said to somo friends to-day that ho

he had strong hopes of tho complete success
of the ticket.
Louis F. Post, notwithstanding tho fact
that he rnado six speeches last night, came
Into headquarters to-day as fresh as a daisy.
Ho said: I can tell The Evenino Wokld
candidly that I think our county ticket
will be oloctod."
"Why do you think so?" asked tho ro
reporter. " Wo had 60,000 solid votes last year, after
making all reasonable allowances. Wo will
not lose moro thou eighreen thousand this
year, and I know thoro aro a great many
people who sympathized with us last year,
but did not vote with us bocauso they had no

personally know a great mauypoople who

ways I have ovidonco of great additions to

tho Standard, with its lnrgo circulation, and

" Judging by tho effect of this agitation, so

When Tammany voters are called upon to

of the ticket Boss Power has put up to vote
for, let them remombcr that for years Mr.
Fellows was a virulent villiflcr of their last
leader, John Kelly. Let the Tammany men
who honor John Kelly's memory turn to tho
columns of the Bun or Herald at the tlmo of

There are hundreds of Tammany voters in
tho old wigwam to-day who will remember
that speooh, and who will Burely resent it at
the ballot-box next Tuesday.
It was in the same campaign and at Cooper
