A8 TO KAS8ACBE8. Not all the massacring Is being done In China and Armenia. We are halng a very line sample of wholesale slaugh ter right hero In New York every day the Lexow Committee sits. It Is reputa tions, and not bodies, that are being slashed, to be sure, but would not most rightly constituted men rather lose their lives than their reputations? Our New York massacre Is not less horrible than Tort Arthur or Armenia simply because It Is less gory. The wounds nnd death Inflicted by Field Msrshal don and his aides will be fresh and. rankling for a generation after the woes of Port Arthur are forgotten. , Contemplating what Is going on under our very eyes, we can well be lenient With the Jap. and even with the un fcp6akable' Turk. The massacre at Port Arthur Is an unfortunate Incident of the progress of a great reform movement. ,' The massacre of reputations Is a nec essary ipctdent of tho Investigation and reform of the-New York Police Depart ment. Women and children and Inno cent men have suffered with the guilty as well In New York as at Port Arthur. Not alone In the heat of battle, but In the enjoyment of victory, mercy .has been as unknown here as In China. The sword of the Japanese Invader Is no more cruel than the unsavory weapons which the Lexow Committee has wield ed against the police. There are always helpless victims to whom the march of civilisation brings misery and wretchedness, whether Its path be over Oriental battle-fields or through the court-roomai and Jills' of an American city. These are times of peace and good will. Let us all, Japs, Turks and Re formers, spare a few days from slaugh ter to pity the unfortunate, though per haps Inevitable victims. AN UNTIMELY DEFENSE. It s to be regretted that tho rtev. Dr. Morgan Dlx, the rector of Trinity, has thought proper to come forward as the defender of the Trinity Corporation In the matter of the wretched and really Illegal condition of the tenement-houses on the corporation property. It would have been more becoming If all the time and efforts of Dr. Dlx and his associates had been devoted to an Immediate rem edy of the evil Instead of being wasted on an apology for Its existence. Dr. Dlx complains that the newspa per exposures of the deplfirable condi tion of the Trinity hovels "have degen erated Into the familiar form of malevo lent attack, garnished with large type and startling headlines." But the "large-type headlines" of the newspapers are not half aa sensational as the story told by the squalor and misery seen In the faces, of the Trinity tenants; the "startling woodcut," true to reality as they are, convey but 'little conception of the degradation, the filth and the wretchedness of the scenes they seek to reorese it. It might well be supposed that a church would be the most careful of all land lords In looking after the welfare, com fort and Improvement of Its poor ten ants. The vast property owned by.'Trln Ity Is held In trust for church purposes, nnd so might Well claim a greater de gree of philanthropy and benevolence In Its management than would be expected from private owners. It Is to be hoped that Dr. Dlx will waste no more time nnd energy In dis cussing the newspapers, the Legislature and the health authorities, but will di rect his efforts towards the betterment of the Trinity tenements before the law Is Invoked to condemn and remove them as dangerous public nuisances. A OBEAT TRIUMPH OF COOKERY. There Is no use talking, our cooks are great. A Newark veterinary surgeon entertained a number of friends last night with a continuous banquet, at which horse flesh wus served up In a variety of dishes. There were horse tall soup, broiled saddle of horse, with horseradish; rib roast of horse, pot roast, steaks and cutlets, and the guests smacked their lips and said that the different courses were out of sight. Not so much surprise should attach to the gusto with which the hlpplphaglsts devoured their bits of horse as to the great triumph achieved by the cook who handled the horse flesh. The splendor of his achievement will be understood when It Is told that the horse partaken of departed this life at the age of twenty-six yeiirs. Any chef or cheress who can reduce a horse of this nee to savorlness and succulency, and make him a genuine piece de resistance ut a banquet, lie senes to wear a large medal or a gor geous crown. Hucli a cook should be es tablished In a chair of pachydermaty In some way-up college of culinary art, and be expected sooner or later to find a practical method of minimising or mil llfjlng the toughness of boarding-house chicken. A big trolley tie-up Is Impending In Newark und Jersey City. It appears that the management of the Consbll dated Traction Company has been steadily lolatlng the State law as to the length of the working day for Its emploees. Now It proposes to aggra vate Its offense by Introducing a pay ment per trip wage system, thus Indi rectly lowering the possible earnings of Its men. The Company can hardly re gard a proposal for a general strike, under these circumstances, as an over whelming surprise. Mayor-elect Strong has administered a timely rebuke to a man who notified him that promises of city patronage had Leen uved to promote certain ends In the late County Committee primaries. Col. Strong Mid that no one had any right to promise patronage to be dis tributed by him, and that If he knew of any such promises they would bo of little avail when he came to make ap pointments. This Is the kind of talk the people like to hear It Is to the public alone that the new Mayor Is to hold hlnuelf under obligations. It nppeirz that metropolitan training and associations are not necessary to the development of the skilled bank thief Cashier lllclby, of the Central National Bank, In the modest little city of Rome, N.

The "up-to-date comedy-drama of met ropolitan life." entitled "Special Deliv ery," now current at the Columbus The atre, Harlem, Is evidently designed to sppeal to the tender hearts ut those useful members of the community the letter-carriers. The hero Is a postman, nnd the principal scene takes place In the Pont-Offke. There were plenty of letter-carriers In the audience last night, I am told Perhaps they liked David II. Scully's play; perhaps the scene In the Post-Office covered up a whole multi tude of evils. I can therefore only re gret that I am not a posimsn. Mr. Scully has probamy been to the theatre very often, and he has learned a thing or two., The thing or two that he has acquired he has Incorporated In "Special Delivery." He knows the good old theory that If you want to down the hero have an Incriminating letter placed In his pocket, nnd let him be searched. Mr. Scully uses that good old theory. He has also discovered that whenever the hero Is alone with the body of r man who has died under sus picious circumstances ne win oe neiu guilty until the close of the play. That rule has no exception, and poor Ed ward Carrlngton, at the close of the third act, was not only supposed to have been Instrumental In th death of IJenry Howard, but a letter had been' discov ered. In the pocket of his gray-blue coat. Poor Edt Cruel Scully! The dialogue of "Special Delivery" Is highly epigrammatic. Here Is one of the epigrams: "A man of honor never kecks rewanl for doing his duty." Tt audience howled with delight at this. Perhaps Mr. Scully Intended It to re fer to the revelations that are agitat ing the surface of municipal politics at present. I am Inclined to believe, how ever, that the author of the play con sidered It a really, genuinely nice and original sentiment, and that politics had nothing to do with Its evolution. One scene In "Special Delivery" Bhows us One Hundred and Twenty-fifth street near the east side Post-Office. A young man ln knickerbockers comes out and olngs a song, standing dangerously near to the cable tracks. He does not get hurt, though. Not a single car passes. Perhaps the gentleman's voice stops them More extraordinary things have happened. Yet he does not sing badly. The troiiblc to be serious with Mr. Scully's play Is that he has no story to tell, and nothing to put In Its place. A play calls for the gleam of an Idea tor a hero that does some thing Interesting, for a heroine that Is sympathetic, for a villain that works hard for his hisses. The best members of the company are Julia II. Sweeney who plays the part of an old Irish woman In the Post-Ofllce and Harry Mills, the baseball boy, Ralph Stuart, as the hero. It not Ineffective, but he Is lacking In dash, nnd B. Russell Throckmorton Is not half as startling as his name. Miss Laura Russell should get some one to buy her u new speak ing voice for a Christmas present. Thaddeus Bplne does good work as an "old pal," and Charles Barrett, who dies In the second act. Is not regretted. A "postal quartet" semeed to afford ihe audience much satisfaction.
