THE VETOED BILL. In vetoing the bill giving the Mayor of New York power of removing nil the heads of city departments nntl replacing them with his own appointees Oov. Tlowcr haB greatly dissatisfied many of those who are engaged In the ffort tu make a change In our niunlrlpnl gov ernment next November. Nevertheless, his refusal to allow Ihe bill lo berome n low has probably Increased the ihances, as It certainly tins added to the Induce ments, of an opposition victory In the State and Legislature this year without , seriously impairing the prospects of nn iintl-Tammnny result In the city. The law would have made nn nntl Tnnnnany victory complete by sweeping every Tammany city nfllclul out of exist ence. That was the reason of the pas sage of the bill. Hut the Republicans have signified what policy they will pursue next year If they win, nnd should they gain the Mayor, the (lo ernor and the Legislature, It Is well known the bill now vetoed would be ri passed the llrst or second week of the next legisla tive session The Governor seeks n pliuslble Justi fication for his veto In the reports of the Fassett Investigating Committee of IS'tO nnd UOI and the Tllden Munlclpil Com mission of 1S7B. In both those documents objections were made to the Investment of thn Mayor with the powers given 111 the vetoed hill, the Tllden report declir Ing that It wojld be "suicidal" to put Into the hands of a single man the toii trol of the lnrge city appropriations, now over forty million dollirs, "to keep himself In plieo." Hut the advocates of the vetoed bill have reiched a different conclusion from experience nnd bdleve, In addition to the necessity of driving Tammany from Its Intrenched power, that It Is better to give the Mnor the full benefit of a friendly government and to enable each Mayor to select his own sub ordliates and thus concentrite an 1 con firm his full responsibility for goo I gov ernment. However, the law Is killed for thl year, and there Is a general belief that the veto Is more the work of the Governor's advisers than his own voluntary not. One fact Is certain. The Mayor's Powrr-of-Rcmovul bill vvns thn measure the most earnestly pressed and the most nnxlously hoped for by nil the elvy gov ernment reformers, and the most dreaded nnd the most vlgorousl) opposed of nil the reform hills by the T mini my poll tlclana. It Is therefore cletrlj seen un which side the vuto Is rust CONEY ISLAND'S CHANGES. , Alas, for Coney iHlnml. Its old glory has depnrled. It is unuexed to Brooklyn and to-morrow the laws of the straight laced city will prevail on the Island, lager beer will cease to flow, brass bands will cease to please the o-ir, dancers will no longer shake tha light fantastic, nnd everi thing will be con- ' ducted ni hearcms the annex of u City ' of Churches. ' Tho Brooklyn police will he on duty, ' nnd It Is said the Sunday laws will be ' strictly enforced. Well, the breezes will como In from the sea as fragrantly and ns refresh ingly as ever, the waves will roll nn plensantly, nnd visitors will be enabled to enjoy themselves on the benches nnd on the broad piazzas ot the hotels ns thoroughly ns tier. Bo, after all, the absence of McKane will not be observed and the presence of the Brooklyn blue coats will probably not be regretted. A DELICATE INSPECTOR. Anthony Comatock hus a rival. A new Appraiser of Customs, Mr. Hart, has stopped at the door of Uncle Sam's CuBtom-IIOusc a copy of Raphael's fa mous picture of I.ucretla and Tarquln and refused It admission to the United States on the ground of Iti Indecency. The etching Is nn old one, nnd Is snld to be of great value. Fortunately Collector Kllbreth has more liberal views. He has been on nil sides In politics, nnd has sat on the bench of a Police Court, experiences calculated to enlarge a man's Idens. He therefore overruled Hart, and decided that, as the orlglnul has been on exhi bition In Berlin for n number of venrs, New York can stand a copy. Mr. Hart ought to leave the Custom House, where too fine Ideas of decency arc out ot place, ami Join the Comstock Society It Is thought now that Mr. Comstock will follow the picture that shocked Inspector Hart nnd tench Raphael that New York wants none of his questionable art. AN INSTALMENT OF REFORM. The Governor hns approved of the bill to compel the Dock Department to let to the lowest bidder all work that wl'.l cost In the aggregate more than the hundred dollars This Is so manifestly Just to the city that It would have bien ridiculous to have yielded to the demnnd of the Dock Commissioners for Its veto. The new law will accomplish some good. Hut It does not go nearly far enough. The Dock Department Is still a cluse corporation, and it holds Itself aloof from any responsibility to the Rnird of Estimate and Appoitlonment, In regard to Its iinnunl expenditures It ought to be brought Into accord with all the other departments of the city gov ernment In all matters. It is believed now that the Consolidation act really requires It to report as all other depart ments do, to tlit; Hoard of Apportion ment, nnj this ought to be tested by the Board, and no doubt would be If n re form city government was In powir. At nil events the new law Is good ns far ns It goes, nnd the Cov ernor may be thank ed for giving It his approval. NO DR00H0T IN NEW YORK. This Is a great city to get up o thirst In.

In last Saturday's Issue, li t "What number, when divided by any number up to nine, will leave a remainder one less than the divisor?" The writer evidently did not know the law of tuch problems, for an Infinite number of number will tjsfy the above conditions. An ever-Increasing arithmetical progression, whose first term It 1,511, and whose common difference It 2,020 will satisfy the conditions The full law It at follows: Sub tract one from the leatt common multiple of any number of number of the natural terltt (alt be ing Included to the highest number used). Thla numbir, when dlrlded by any term of the aeries, will leave a remainder one less than the divisor. Example The least common multiple of the ae ries up to 19 In 212.792.SCO Thla diminished by 1, when divided by nny n ember in the series, will leave a remainder one less than the divisor. There Is a more remarkable fact connected with thla law. Kill", the celebrated (lerman mathe matician, has had the honor for the discovery of the largest prime number known. I ran give any one a simple law whereby an Infinitely larger prime number can be found. Euler It the great Known, but the science of mathematics baa ad ranced since hla time, " We honor overmuch the mighty dead, and disparage living merit, heaping scorn upon Its head Or, perhaps, when kinder crown, leaving It to die alone."

The Sum mer table Is a rose table, with white Ilavlland, decorated with scattered rosebuds, the sweets and Ices being rose-tinted or served In the form of roses. Autumn will have the luncheon cloth strewn with cherries In their nat ural tints, bowls heaped with grapes and with the glowing red and yellow beauty of the nasturtium and golden rod, while the Winter table may be ap propriately modelled after the most sug gestive decoration, of that season.
