An important report from the Plato Super?
intendent of Insurance \till bc found elsewhere
in TBS Tiiiium. this morning. It shows great
nml legitimate prosperity on the part of the re?
gular life insurance companies, but speaks dis?
couragingly of thc ireneral condition of tho co?
operative associations. Many of these, tho
Superintendent declares, are in a bad way. He
mentions what he considers sure signs of un?
trustworthiness on the part of such associations
?a part of the report which their beneficiaries
should study with care.
The references in mle nt the meeting of the
New-York State brewers and maltsters yester?
day to the political strength of their association
and the defeat of Judge Maynard last fall, were
meant of course lo intliience the men at
Albany who intend to vote for the High License
excise bill. These covert threats should not be
heeded. The brewers and maltsters represent
a large industrial interest which is opposed to
the Roosevelt bill, but which is not so powerful
or large SS the combined interests in favor of
that measure. Hm brewers want cheap beor
licenses; the trouble about that is that in this
city, and in all cities for that matter, the hold?
ers of beer licenses .-.ell spirits Sa well as beer.
Moreover, it is not likely that if all licenses ate
high unlicensed places will increase. The men
wini have paid a large sum for a right to sell will
themselves be interested to keep illegal liquor
stoics from being established near them.
-.?.-:
Then-have been indications lately that the
Spanish authorities iii Cuba wt ic, trying to get
agrip on some of the politics] offenders who
have fled from the Island to this countrj, by
demanding their extradition as bandits, polit?
ical refugees being protected by treaty. The
casi- nt General Ague-re, published in Ths
Tribune on February 3, looked mncb like it,
and ihe recent charges that the passengers on
the brig Screamer, bound for Boston, were also
bandits, have added strength to this theory,
The United States Government, of course, can
do nothing winn suchchsiges arcmadebul
hold the accused persons and examine into the
matter cu. lull, . 'lin's wai done in the til-, of
lin- Si -learner's passengers, and they were found
to be harmless Immigrants. The Inquiry ha*
rather helped than bsrmed them, for they sra
to be aided by the proper authorities to reach
their destinstion if they need aaststsnee.
These results will liardlv encourage the Cuban
Government if they are trying to gel around
the treaty. ______________
A WARNING TO VOTERS.
The decision of the nexl Presidential election
will rest with a body of thoughtful voter.* who
care little for the clap-trap of a campaign, in?
dulge in little hero-worship or party-worship,
and arc able to comprehend the forces which
make parties what they are. To such voters,
Birren! events offer much instruction.
They will notice that only one parry si ciih to
comprehend the needs or wishes of the people.
Every time the Democratic party starts out to
a*sail ii Republican position, it presently breaks
itself to pieces against a solid wall of public
opinion. Thus that party promised itself an
essy victory In assailing specie resumption. It.-*
ap].eals to prejudice, ignorance, snd narrow
self-interest were exceedingly adroit. With u
loud .loutish of trumpets it made ready to
sweep the country for repeal of the resumption
uct. Then the ijuh t citizens, who du uol shout
much Imi understand what they are doing,
began to unite. Hosts of Democrats saw thal a
backward step would be ruin to business and
dishonor to tlie Nation. Public opinion rose
like ii wall of mik to resist repeal. The Dem?
ocrats divided, went to pieces, and with Impo?
tent rage broke in froth iiml foam sgsinst the
unmoved barrier. Again, a splendid victory
wss expected in sn ssssull upon the Civil Ser?
vice act. Part of the Republicans were willing
to see the refrain arrested. Democratic lenders
plausibly urged that a system of permanent
tenure should not be inaugurated while Repub?
licans lilied the offices. Bul the people have
nindi- it plain that tiny approve the act, and no
party now dare- to assail it directly.
The Republican policy on the tariff Question
In 1880 wss supposed by Democrats to bs <
pceially assailable. Changes had been refused
on tbe distinct ?.Mound that s revision amid all
the excitement of fl Presidential yeal would be
most dangerous to Industry. Then the cry
went up, " These monopolists refuse to reduce
taxes"; the Democrats resolved that (hey wanted
?? a tariff Lu revenue only," and began the fight.
Before the struggle was half over their can?
didate waa explaining about the ttIocs! Issue,"
and n part of his supporters pronounced him
"a good man, weighing 250 pound*," and the
author ol' the platform WAS roundly cursed.
Once mora it wss found thal tho Bepublictuis
hud accurately expressed the Kill of the people.
Once more the Democratic party dashed itself
to piece* against an immovable wall of public
opinion.
Then the Republicen party took the time for
a careful and thorough revision of the tariff,
willi dm- regard for the inn jests and industrii i
affected. This done, they declared further
chsnge unwise until another Presidential
struggle had passed, and the workings of tho
m-w ai t hiid I. .ii fairly tested by a year or two
ol undisturbed experience. The Democrats,
as usnul, blundered again. Because revision
and reduction had bet n advocated by Republi?
cans la-t year, they concluded thai snother re?
vision uud reduction would be popular thi*
year. And now public opinion is compacting
itself to resist them, ju-t a-it did before. The
position thal s new hts oughl to be tail ly u ited
before snother change is mad.' meets with
almost universal approval. The claim that, in
any event, the tariff should be so shaped bs to
defend home isdustry commands the support ol
,i i..In of ihe Democrats themsi Ives. Above all
tlc position iii.ii iii'- difficull ami delicate work
..I tariff revision esnnol be safely undertaken
in the heat ol a Presidsntisl yeal commends
itself to all rational men.
We shall see hos the Democratic p.ut. will
ernie mn of this liiie.-t collision with public
opiuiou. Many sagacious Democrats admit
thal they are Blore dishesrtoned than they have
bein before since the civil war, which, it may
bs niii.uk. d, the i'? nun r;itic pin ly cii.i-.ed hy
pr..i-ei> the same stolid and stupid blindness
rwdobstinacy which il [snow displaying. Ons
leader of the party bsj -, u the psrtj mu.*.! go to
pieces illili ss the |H..lei lioiii-l.-,yield." Another
i-. equally sun- thal " tin party mae! no to pisces
Unit*.** thc flue Hilders yield." lim, whelliST it
holds together or not, this is already clear, that
the party has once more involved itself in ex
tiaordinary peril by setting itself against tho
ilcliberate opiniou of tho people and thc needs
of industry and trade. The thoughtful citizens
who note this fact will consider whether there
is any reason to believe that the Democratic
patty would contrive to avoid similar miscon?
duct if it should lw> intrusted with full charge
of lhe Government. It ls absurdly ignorant of
public interesU and needs to-day; would it
know any moro if In power? It BSSSBS ab?
solutely incapable of comprehending public
sentiment, or slss wonderfully indifferent to it ;
would a sense, of power make that party more
quick witted or more obedient I
TUE ADIRONDACE QUESTION.
The session i.*. .slipping away, but BO dei [sion
has yet bsSS rein lied in regard to what il is liest
to do to secure the adeipiate protection of thc
Adirondacks. The subject has been before the
Legislature ever since it met in January, and
yet now that March is two-thirds gone word
comes of the abandonment of the pi niling
Adirondack measures in thc Assembly, and the
introduction of a new bill which has been
agreed upon by a majority of the members of
the Committee on Public bands.
This bill. Judging from the synopsis which
has bjSSB telegraphed, bsa many wiso features.
An much can lie said of the Hill that have
been nbandoned?of the Lansing bill, the
elisabet of Commerce bill, and the rest. Put
what lhe people want to know is?and they are
thoroughly in earnest in this non-partisan
matter?is this new measure tobe vigorously
pushed, OT is H fal tarn to be superseded 1 If lt
is psssed, will tho Senate concur T There ls
ground for apprehending thal there will be a
c.nllict between the two hoUSCS, BttdtltStths
bills which .ire the ultimate choice of the Sen?
ate and Assembly r.-spectit Sly frill die ill a com?
mittee of conference. Our Albany correspond?
ent reports that three sndperhsps four mem?
bers of the Committee on Public Lsndsof thc
Assembly are apparently opposed to any legis?
lation whatever on the subject of the Adiron?
dack.-, and it is believed they have many allies
in the Assembly and some in the Senate.
We beg lent i to assure OUT law-makers that
they will mske s serious mistake if they ad?
journ without lending tbe "state a helping hand
iii this particular. The safety and prosperity of
New-York demand thal something be done
promptly to arrest tho destruction of the boi th?
em forests. The mi.I of legislation has been
ni:.''. *o cleai thal he who runs may read. The
opposition means nothing except tl ie Interests
..I the few arrayed against the common weal.
/./?;/ IR DA ROI i.
lt is not likely that a Congress which, owing
to the inaction of Ita House, bas Bot suf*ceeded
in (loin,,' anything in tieail\ four months, will
lind time, in the few months that remain, to pas*,
any more statis imo the Union. Mut thin- la
uo political reason, at least, why the Dc m. ic mis
in Congress should stand in the woy of Dakota,
for lear the new Mate would go Republican in
theooming Presidential election, lin-lull for
admission SSS been so framed that it will aol
take pla.-e until alter fm- Presidential election.
It throws aside all the informal proceedings
taken by the people ol Southern Dakota in hold?
ings Constitutions] Convention on their own
motion, and re.nitres them to follow the estab?
lished routine, 'I his avoids the renewal of past
local differences, and leaves the whole question
on its merits.
On those, the new State can certainly claim a
pises in the Dillon. Thc Committee's piss li
thu which h;i* bet n approved by the sentiment
of Dakota for years back?to divide the Terri?
tory on the forty-sixth parallel of latitude,
makin',' the lower part the State of Dakota and
the nj.per port the Territory of Lincoln, a name
selected by thc Committee in preference to
l'eiiibina, .Memlan, Gsrfield, Jefferson, OgalollSi
Franklin and HidosttV The preference for
Lincoln was unanimous, and a wisc one. The
new State would be about one-snd-one-hslf
times the si/e ot New-York, and indeed would be
the eight h State in area in the Union, much larger
than any State east of the Mississippi. It
is ii splendid and fertile empire?this Ti rritory
of Dakota. Only Texan exceeds it in tbe area
of cultivable lund, and its wheat-fields ure
growing at a rate which make* the oeustlS*
taker feel that he is writing ancient history
even before lie has put his figures down. Tile
census of Issi: put the entire population of the
Territory at l.'t.l. 177. The Senate Committee,
in reporting the bill, expressed the belief that
the present population is 350.000, ami pre?
dicted that by the time Southern Dakota is
ready to enter the Union under this bill, her
population will entitle her to two member-) ol
Congress. This is certainly not an extravagant
estimate when we observe the reimirknlib- in?
crease of homestead entries snd of post-offices
in tin- Territory since the census was taken. Lp
to i BIM), the Committee .-tales the total number
of homestead entries had been 29,704; by tbs
einl.it I****'.) they Imii increased to 77."stiD?an
increase of 48,096, or more than 180 per cent.
In the four years ending with the Brat of la-t
Janusry, tbs number of post-offices bsd more
than doubled. Tbs Territory has more post*
offices than Massachusetts or South Carolina.
? Millie estimate thal two-thirds of thc total
population <d 350,000 is south of the forty
sixth parallel, tho population ta tito proposed
new State will considerably exceed the represent*
alive unit undei- the last apportionment law.
Mut even If this were not so, ii would nol neces?
sarily be ? fins] objection to the admission of
Dakota that it hud not the population entitling
it io a member of Congress, <>f the twentj
State.-- that hiive passed through the territorial
condition only four had, by tbe census taken be?
fore their admission to the Union, a population
equal to tlie representative unit. Dakota,
how. vcr, will have much more than thal unit,
mid whin thc prospects and wealth of tho young
st,tte are considered with the enterprise and
thrift of ita people, it seems thal Congress outfit!
to open tbs door promptly. Lei Dakota in.
AMUUKR SWEEP1N0 PENSION lilli.
The Senate will soon have to take up the
loose and sweeping bill pensioning all Mexican
m.1.lier*, which Mi. Townahi nd framed and the
House passed by sn overwhelming majority.
Congress lia.* blundered so isdlj before in pen?
sion legislation, thai ii La to he boped the Sen tte
will now supply a little of thal wi-.lom which
the House seems to lack, even in the light of
experience.
One greal reason, probably, for the strength
of this measure is ina .-.. mp.ith.v thal comes
unlii.ld.-a ul the thought of old soldiers who
foughl brsvolj foi their country, and who,
though they iu. un.-il no disability in war, sisj
be in want in their declining yens. li _
.],niui d by many timi thc principle of pension*'
lng lill who served in a war, those is ho were not
wounded ol disabled ni any way a- well ai
tho*e vt hu were, las pernicious one, hut u must
be admitted, ou the other hand, that, whether
wiso ur liol, ft is not without putt dent. Thc
difficulty with the Townshend bill ii.thut it
ignores all the wise reatrictbini heretofore
pl.t'ed Upon snell nieitsllle-., illld, III bul, IS S
totally dllli I. lit hill in .spill! limn tim-- which
placed the survivors of ihe itetoluii'jii.iiv Wss
and the War of 1812 upon tho pension rolls.
Those ni t-< were avowedly passed to i elie ve the
mn salties of poor veteran*! to whom tho
country SSS grateful. Under the act placing
survivors of tho Revolutionary War on tho
pen-iion roll* for life, it was necessary to show a
service of niuo months at least, and to provo in
a court of record that tbs applicant WSS
pecuniary need. A few years later the law was
amended because frauds were discovered, and
applicants were required to make oath toa
schedule of their property in court. These re?
quirements, repeated in the txSSS of 1S12
veterans, may be culled humiliating by Mme,
but they aie substantially tho same as those
now required af dependent relatives, of de?
ceased soldiers. Mr. Townshend's bill hts
down all thc bins. It puts on the pension rolls all
sin \iv ing ollicers and mon, including mai ines,
militia and volunteers, ??, ho served sixty days
in the Mexican War, whether they ever set font
on Mexican soil or not, and the widows ol
such men. It tims pensions not only meti
who did no service in tho held, but men bj ho do
not need the help of the Government?some
members of this Congress, for ex-ample, and
others who are supposed ttl be above vtjnt.
Lastly, it repeals that section of tho Revised
Statutes prohibiting pensions to any persons
who have ever taken pact in rebellion
against tbs Government. It was estimated by
Mr. Brown, of Indiana, in his speech in the
Bouse, that 20,000 Mexican veterans afterward
went into the Hebel Anny. All the survivors
of thOSC men would bo placed upon the pension
rolls with honor and rewind equal to those men
who were loyal to their country. We do not
believe the people of tho North, when they
come to understand this, will approve legisla?
tion that puts Kebels on the pension rolls and
leaves no legal barrier against additions to the
number.
Estimates ditler, of course, as to the amount
the bill will take out of tbs Treasury In its
present shape. Its friends say, one millions
year; its opponents, live. We all know how
Congress blundered in its estimates before.
The average age of the Mexican survivors i
said to be sixty-three year*-, and the number
must be Urge, There wsrson the rolls at the
end of the hist fiscal year nearly 5,000 sui \ iv?
or.* of the Wiirof 1812, and over 21,000

Congress is to establish now, for the firs! time,
the principle ol' pensioning soldiers, whether
they sere injured or not, whether they need
help or not, it must expect before man) year*, to

TENEMENT CONTRASTS.
An official connected with tlie bondon School
Board ha* recently made some remarkable as?
sertions i. ipecting tho working classes in that
city. This is Inspector Marchant Williams.
lb- stiites that the sehools in thc Finsbury
divisions atc lilied with children, ol whom from
ti****, to 80 per cent come from bornes consisting
..( on.- loom only ; and tlvut the Miine percent*
age holds good for many other districts, Ile
describes s tenement house containing nine
rooms, each of which was made to accommodate
eight persons oil an average. He estimates
that there are st less! 60,000 families in Lon?
don who oocupy ooly ono room. The dimen?
sions' of thi- Binnie room seldom exceed twelve
by ten feel, and are often smaller. Working
people lu New-York aro not laOUsed in ideal
tenements i thorough sna1 systematic ss sre the
-.unitary uispections, there sre roany respoi t-i in
which their home-, may and ought io h,- Im?
proved; but thej aro neither forced nor allowed
to herd together in single rooms. A very large
proportion of the tenement population occupy
apartments consisting of two, three or more
rooms. There sre comparatively few families
lobe found on Manhattan [aland huddled to?
gether in a single room twelve hy ten feet.
The single ronni used hy a large tinnily im?
plies a condition of abject poverty, of which
Kew-Yolk working-people have no know ledge.
Why is it that the charge of overpressure is
mode so frequentij by offloisls snd teachers in
London f ls it because tins requirements of tin*-.
Board schools are in advance of similar stand?
ards in tho New-V.uk public schools. There
Ls no evidence that th.- lanius of children are
(subjected to greater strain there than licit*.
The fault lies with the bodies and stomachs of
the London children. In one of the (h-rkeii
will schools an annual Inspection luis shown
that 36 per cent of thepsrents ore out of em?
ployment, that 40 per cent begin their studies
fm the day withouts bioakfasl. and that 28
percent go (o afternoon school willi..ut having
hiid any dinner. In another sohool the percent?
age of those who are apt to go without dinner is
17, mid of those who go break buttle.-,** 23.
Mimed andUl-nourished bodies and hungry
stomachs are largely, responsible for, the over
pressure of which humanitarians are constantly
complaining. So general is the e\ il lhat in
many school districts teachers and trustees are
strenuously advocating tho i'ci-diu^ of ihe poor?
est children at public tjxpense.
In order to explain why it is that thousands
of children in the London schools ure hiing
educated on empty or hall-lilied stomachs,one
mu.*! take munt things into account. Intemper?
ance, Improvidence and lack of employ menl ara
the factors in the problem, bul not hy any means
chief in importance. The father maj besober,
frugal aud industrious, and yet nol be able to
give his gi ow ing family a larger shelter dian a
linnie of ono room or to .send his children to
