K, Politicians may ponder with profit some
K ' feature, of the eloction returns in this State.
HEfi "' The Republican and Democratic falling off
HPL from the vote- of 1881, in tho State at largo, is
B Just about tho same. Tho Domocratio gain in
H&f plurality is in this city and Brooklyn.
Bt) Taking the State together, tho Labor Tote
Kf appears to hare been drawn In nearly equal
KS proportions from both the old partios. Tho
Kgv Increase in tho Democratic plurality is very
Ej' nearly identical with the increase in the Fro.
Kw, hibltion vote about 15.000.
5'i The Prohibition party is thus in a position
P to defeat tho Republican party again in 1883,

BK indications that it purposos to lesson its

Hpfr i Architect Bxohaud M. Hunt, one of the
H', trustees of the Metropolitan Museum, is
Et heartily In favor of Sunday opening, and
Bk(V Joins Tub Woeld in answering tho objection
Kf,'- of extra expense by suggesting that tho Mu
HKv ' Mam might be closed ono week dny. '
BkS Yet, if the popular wish is nccoded to,
BKV there need be no uneasiness about the addl
Kl tlonal expense. Tho people of Now York,
Hp who already havo practically given tho
BK Museum a fine silo and a splondid strncturo,
kv who paid the expense of equipment and even
vK of the movement of tho collections, who
BBJfc' have in addition dovotod $384,000 or moro for
P;, enlargemcnU and $125,817 for current ox
Hfc penses, are not likely to rofnso tho fow
HK'.f thousands required for Snnday opening.
BBk, Indeed, there is a standing offer for this very
BBkf purpose.

Tho principle of insurance has already

herself to tho inevitable. In tho lovo sccno
Mrs. Potter w 11s undeniably charming. Hor
Miico, alwajs mellow and well pitched, was
ot times insinuatingly wooing, coqucttishly
fond nnd unalterably pissionuto 'I his was
her best Bcono. In tho agony act, thero is no
ttso douyiug tho fact that sho gurgled. It is
so 1 asy to gurglo mimio emotion! so 01
tremoly difllcult to produce an apparently gen
uitio trouiolo. In this Mrs. Potter was won
derfully unsuccessful, but sho was pardoned,
for it wus not easy to forget hi r delicious lovo
scene. " Lojnl I.oo" is 0110 of the drear
iest plnjs that tho Tifth Avouuo 'ihtutro
has known. It is quite as bud ns
" Mllo. do Bressier," nnd condemna
tion can go no furthor. Boss Neal is tho
pseudonym of the author, who does well not
to roial his or her identity. " Loyal I.ovo "
isnbhurdly proti ntious. It abounds with
idiotically long speeches tending to nothing.
It is hopelessly wrapped up in tedious blank
Mirsn, unrelieved by n solitary idea. It is
absolutely do old of action. It is long oh 1
so wi nrily, ilrcurily long. Mrs. Potter was
supported by Kyrlo Bellow and Joseph
Han orth in parts of cqunl lunguitudo. Mr.
Bellow did bitter than usual as Pedro. Ho
was moro vigorous and devoted less timo to
ensting up his oyLS liko tho proverbiol "dv
ing duck." Of conrso ho looked oxtremoly
lovely in his torra-cotta robes, but, tbnnk
goodness, ho relied less upon this fnct last
night than usunl. Joseph Hnworth did
splendidly ns Gonrnles. Harry Allen as tho
King was absurd. Hib walk across tho stage
would mnke his fortune at Dockbtadtr's.
Miss Maida Craigen had littlo to do.

Beigor, Moreland, Frillman, Maxwell, Ouinn,
Shcppnrd nrtd Doekstadcr tako part. Thero

thero aro no hopes of improvement. Swoet
