AH OBJECT LESSON.
For the first time in its history the Metro
politan Museum opens nozt week a magnifi
cent exhibition of paintings ozolusivoly its
own. It is enablod to do this by the splendid
bequest of the lato Miss OATnEnnns Wolte.
Thousands will throng tho galleries for
months to come to gaze upon these art treas
ures. Tho good they will do nono con meas
ure, but all must reoognlze. The ennobling
and healthful infiuenco of true art Is as un
deniably a factor of social welfare as is the
To the millionaire this exhibition will be a
striking object lesson. It will afford him an
inspiring example of the duties and high op
portunities of wealth. It will give him
"pointers" as to the best investment he
could possibly moke.
What dividends ran millions draw com
parable to tho gratitude of the people J
Boss Tweed, too, was a " good fellow."
As the Bun says and it doubtless knew he
was "true to his friends" and "liberal
with his resources." But though Col. Fel
lows helped to re-elect him Senator, the
liberal Boss preoeded Srunr to jail.
The Tammany resolutions doclared that
"political discussions should not descend to
personal abuse." What a rebuke this would
have been to foul-mouthed Dana, if ho had
not a cheek like a sewer-pipe.
"Draw me out of that crowd," says ex
Mayor FnAtrxLrM Edsom to the ratiflers of
Fellows's nomination. A good many other
honest Democrats will wish to-day that they
had followed his example.
" I don't claim to have been an important
factor in the prosecution of the Boodlers,"
says Col. Fellows. This is answering an
accusation never brought against him.
Henby Geobok is right. " The doom of
bossism has been sounded." By substituting
Nicoll for Post the Labor party can help to
execute the decree of doom.
Fellows asks i "Who is my opponent?"
His opponent is his record, and his most
dangerous enemies his pretended friends.
The blunderers and the plunderers are in
the last ditch.

Phelps shared the pabllo distrait of the District
Attorney's office as managed by his predeocsior,
and he did not retain the valuable aervlcea of John
R. Follows as an Militant. In the Tweed trial,
which began on Jan. T, therefore, Fellowa did not
officially appear. The case was given to the jury
on Jan. so, and on Jan. si the jury reported Its In
ability to agree. The disagreement was a publlo

the day of tho disagreement. These dates are ex
tremely significant. Why did WUIIsm M. Tweed.
on the dsy when his escape from conviction for
Infamous crimes had naturally pat him In a most
generons frsme of mind toward! all who had con
tributed to that remit, make a "generons offer"
to John It. Fellows, a man who only a month be
fore had been employed by the city of New Tork
to get him and his criminal associates Into State
prison If possible T And why should Col. Fellows
have permitted this odious and virtually
oonrteted felon to approach him with "gen
erous offers," much lees to make those off era
good? An honorablo attorney who had taken
part In the preparations for Tweed's prosecution
would no more have asked and accepted money
from him at such a time than he would have en
tered a den ot rattlesnakes. The humiliation of
protested notes and the discomfort of ejectment
for non-payment of rent are to be reckoned as
among life's trifling annoyances compared with
the deep damnation ot accepting a large sum of
money from William M, Tweed at a time when
there Is the strongest presumptive evidence thst

Was John It. Fellows one of Tweed's jury

These three figures sre the picture; the rest Is ac

Wolf Is a young artist. His first Important work

The Democratlo'state Convention wss held thst

spite of the exposures, demanded recognition and
admittance. Col. Fellowa went to Rochester as
head of the Tammany delegation, Tom Coman
being second on the list. Fellows assumed a bold
front, aa against Tllden, Seymonr, Church, Green
snd the other honored leaders of the State Democ
racy, who were determined to pnrge the party ot
the foal Ring of which Col. Fellowa was then the
eloquent mouthpiece. The NewToTkferoid re
ports Col, Fellows ss saying before the conven

we are a pack or thieves, and unworthy to asso

tion for Tammany to decide whether or not, under
the circumstances, Tammany people were not un
worthy to vote to sustain a ticket which might be
put Into their hanat by others with whom they
were not Jit to associate. "
Tweed followed lathe same strstn, saying: " Go
ahead! Kick ns ontl If you can get along without
us, all right. We want the State ticket to succeed;
but If you think yon can elect your State ticket
without our help, go ahead!"
But the honest Democrats did not scare, and

WAsniNOTOn, Nov. 4. It appears upon in
vestigation that the sending of on alleged in
fernal machine to Ohief-Justico Waito last
evening was a hoax gotten up by a sensa
tional newspaper man. Tho Chief Justioo
admitted this morning that he had reooived a
" little box." " It came through the mail.
It was a little paper box, perfectly harmless
and ovidently sent for the purpose of mak
ing a sensation."
" Did you call in the police?"
"No; but a policeman called here about
it. I opened the box myself and found there
was nothing in it at all dangerous. It was a
perfoct shame, I don't think I would have
regarded it as a matter for tho police if the
policeman had not called to Inquire about it."
The reporter who first discovered the plot,
which was ovon before the Chief Justice
received tho box, tells a very improbable
story. Ho was standing in the nost-ofilco
last night about 6 o'clock. In rescuing for a
pen ho observed a man directing n box to
Chief Justice Waito. It ocourred to him a
few moments later that the box might con
tain dynamite. He hurried up to
the residence of the Chief Justice, but did
not time his arrival well, as he
got thoro ahead of tho box. He returned to
tho post-office and found that the box had
actually been sent, and then with oommend

of Western newspapers before notifying the
