Thompson's consldt ration for workingmen.
Repaving Jobs that Mr. Cunningham pays about
$14 75 for cost the city $0:1?even alloting
that the city get? all thnt it pays for. It was
proved yesterday that the department hud
nguiu beeu guilty of tampering with official
records. The sUto of morality in the Publio
Works Department is certainly not whut it
ought to bo.
The neighborhood of Sixth-ave. and Thirty
S00Ottd-et.es for Beet OB Fifth-ave. seems to need
timre police attention than it hus been enjoying
lately. Tho outrageous burglary in the Monno
Hats in March, the attempted robbery ol* Dr.
liannev's house night before lani, ami various
minor neem 100061 before that time will be apt
to make householders in that part of the city
lestleea at night. Moreover, the possibility
tli.it the electric lights around those blocks may
gu out suddenly, as they did a few nighta ago,
mid leave tho neighborhood in total durkinm
for hours, Is not in itself calculated to have a
Soothing eftcct on nervous people. The trial of
the persona accused of tho Sloane outrage is
now occupying the attention ot' Recnrdei Smyth,
and tbe men captured in Dr. Runner's house
will soon be arraigned. There seems to be
little doubt of convictions in both cases, nnd if
they are nomad the sentences of the guilty
p. irstilts ought to make tho vicinity ol' Thirty
seeond-Bt unpopular with thieves.

There is no call whatever for tlie billa intro?
duced in tho Senate and Asseml ly yesterday in
Mgwd tO UM inspection of meat tillered for salo
in this city. Our Board of Health already has
all possible power for the performance nf this
duly, nmi if it is neglected the non-performance
ot it is certainly not due to defective laws
ot lack of inspectors. Bat the meaaatO) ol
course, is univ a blow aimed al tbe men who aro
bringing to thia city in refrigerator eora beef
slaughtered in the West. Tho New-York
butchers declare that This meat ia preserved by
r lemioals; but they have never sustained their
assertion with proof, and careful inquiry shows
thal there is probably no truth in what they
say. If they have any ei idenee, why did they
not lay it before the Senate Committee on
Public Health, which recently held sessions in
tli is cit,- for the ezpn ss purpose of hearing such
complaints 1 Probably some Assemblymen or
Si natora think tn gain favor with the working
classes by pushing thee measures. Mich legis?
lators would be wise to go a little slowly. A
bill which increases the cost of beef t>> laboring
men in New-York is not likely tobe popular
arith them._
MODERA1I0S IS iU, DI I'.
This is a good time for charity in though! and
moderation in speech, when the ti tm - of lend?
ing Republicans foi a Presidential Domination is
the topic. The man we du not prefer hu* his
friends. If he bad nol a good many friends, we
should mit he tempted to say a word about him.
The Votes ul these fi iemls w ill lu- ,i.. ,ted in
November, il the porty is to elect Biiybody.
In some quarters a spirit h. shown
which does not t.-nd to make success < aay. When
Iii own Bays : " I e.ui"t and won'l support such a
" fool orknave aa your friend Black . ? Democrat
" would lie better." does Brown et? il In?
onu candidate will have tho hoai . i port ol
Black's friends? Or when While-.. "Too
'?.ne not holy enough lorine; nine-ttutha of
"theparty prefer bad men ; you mus) all come
-up to my lofty standard,or a sol it Demo
"??lats less worthy than any nf yon shall pre*
" vail," din's lie show good sense ? The personal
preferencee of any large body of Republican
voters are entitled to a measure of respect, at
least, from any one who wishes his own prefer?
ences to be at nil respected.
It is possible and proper to discuss candidates
with all needful freedom. Wo can sn.v, for in?
stance, that President Arthur's tiominalit,n tines
not seem to US the strongest that eau be m.,de,
and give clear reasons tor that opinion, without
disputing thc general excellence of his Admin?
istration. If the positions formerly taken bj
-Senator Logan on financial questions would
rendi-i him les* strong in New-Yorh than some
ollie;- candidates, that consideration cnn be
fairly and forcibly presented without saying, a
oiic journal .Ines, lli.it '"his 11. il ii ina I inn i> uni li,
ho thought ot." The tact that a good man]
sound Republicans tin think of his Domination,
ami deem it desirable, deserves respectful
notice.
lt is rather a bad habit, about nominati in
time, to declare that thisjor tiiat candid.ile can?
not bo elected. We seriously doubt whether
the sober and practical people of this eountrj
are going lo pieter Democratic rule to the BOC
oeas of any Republican who is at all likely to be
nominated. Political Independence is a good
thing, where thero ia a proper occasion for it.
.Morn than once it hus been needful, ami in
breaking ..down the domination of mere ma?
chines or bosses it has dom- good to the party,
Bul no candidate mu year i- in the least degree
likely to he forced sipon an unwilling party by
machine dictation, or by the management of
hn-ses. Any man whom the rotors of tho Re
publican party, noting with reasonable freedom
ami through a fairly organized convention,
honor sufficiently to select us their candidate, if
exceedingly likely to he preferred hy the peoph
nominee of an effete, incompetent re
actionary ami essentially Bun lum Democracy.
It is will to choose the strongest candidate We
i'.in. Bi' il is not well to imagine that any one

THE DEMOCRATIC OSTRICH.
i'm- ul tin- curiosities of current politic.il lit?
eratim- is tin- - Addreaa to tin- Democratic mem?
bera of tbe Uniise of Representatives," signed
-Many Democrats," ami stat tn ever} Demo?
cratic member ol the House, The writer evi?
dently started out with the idea that il was a
oiiiipaiatit'ely easy thing to do to point om
whal tm- Democratic party believes hi, what li
really want-, and what it ought in tlie present
emergency to do. -ihe first great duty" of
the party, according to this circular, is"ao io
iiim itselt im- lin- coming ba tie "as to retain
ihe II-, iso, tho S mate ami elect the
President. It nettle.I no "Address" lo make
the fact known that tin- first greal dmy ot tie
I>t inocradc patty is to gol office ami power.
'Ihe "second great duty," as set forth in the
Address, "will be to use it* power thus ac?
quired"?now it iiegins tobe Interesting?"in
reforming the Government "?we've heard thai
frequently before?" reforming the taxation
methods "?yea, bul how? that's just what tbo
party ls baulking at now?" reforming the Ad?
ministration "?meaning by thal simply u grand
swoop of the Federal ottoee? "reforming nil
irregularities and suppressing all abases."
What lots of information hen- M to the specific.
purpoaea of those gentlemen I "Wy aro ull
BOgM tn arrive at the same destination," they
add with charming ingenuousness, u power and
reform." Tower" first, wu may be certain.
In plain terms, tho party wanta to bo put in
power upon tho btrcngth of its promised to do
something il can only inotilli about in a looao,
general way, and does not daru specif} or do
line.
After reviewing at considerable length the
questioiiiut laauu between the tautiona of tho
party, tho Address concludes wltb a etatomont
of "the demand ofthepresont momont" npon
the Democracy, which ls that they declaro their
prceont policy, " not by division Into factions
anda fut ile eilort to puns' a' bill, but by decisive,
unequivocal, unanimous expression." Interest
to an unusnnl degree la Immediately excitod
when tho authors of the Addresu propose an?
other caucus and boldly put forward the very
form of thu resolution bv which the Democratic
policy is to be declared u by decisive, un?
equivocal, Unanimous expression." Now cer?
tainly we an- tn lime sowolhliig definite end
derisive. Bet us read it. Tin' proposed resolu?
tion is to set forth : u That it is the sense of the
" Democratic party of the House of RepTOBOnta
? tives that at the'earliest practicable moment
"tin1 National revenues should be rodeoed to
"the noceeaitioa nf (he Government econonii
" cally administered"?nothing new here?that's
the sense of all parties j "that rt is unjust and
"undemocratic tn levy nnneeeasary taxes re?
sulting in a large and dangerous surplus in
"thc Treasury "?nor is then- any ditlercnce nf
opinion about that; " that- the present ctistuins
"duties as levied hy the Republican party be
? re-arranged, and the aggregate revenue
"reduced so that the bardens of taxation may
" be brought to the lowest possible limit, anti be
u more equitably distributed, and that internal
"taxes be reduced a- SOOO iv* practicable "?this
begins tn look like business?now, howl why,
thus: "bi such manner an the Democratic party
in CoOjgrtmt may hereafter agrer upon."1 There's
a declaration of principles foi you.
The party, beluga! loggerheads over the tarifl
and Internal taxes, is to be brought into har?
mony by the declaration thal the funner ought
tobe arranged so as to distribute the barden
equitably, and tha latter ought tobe reduced?
points which all agree open. The great and
only question nf the manner in which it is tn ho
accomplished is turned over to " the Democratie
party in Congreaa" in some indefinite "here?
after." Take particular notice, moreover, that
this "hereafter" is formally moved beyond the
Presidential elect inn ; fm- the proposed resolu?
tion goes on to aay that thc Morriaoa bill shall be
recommitted to the Committee with instructions
to report beck ? bul covering the whole subject
"before the 10th day of Jannarj next." The
whole busim-si liesinaiiutsh.il. The Demo?
cratic porty, having howled itaelf hoarse in favor
ol reform, has been given an opportunity to
show it^ hand as to what reforms it favors end
hy what processes they an- t'i be made effectual.
Civil Service Reform it has been obliged to re?
pudiate ; revenue reform it still clings to. Upon
tho capacity of the part] to perfect ami agree
upon auy measure of revenue reform ii largely
depends whethei the people will trust them
willi the Presidency. With a lull knowledge ol
Hus tact it is calmlj propoeed io put oil iln test
until after the Presidential election, and make
tin- campaign on the old hollow cry. "60 io,
now," says iii-' Democratic ostrich, "let us eon*
ce.il ourselves by hiding our head in tin- saud."
And th.- cunning bird's larger part looma up
like a milage in the daafll t.
A BEFOBB MEA8UBE IS l>ixt.;r:.
Further efforts weie made in tin- State Benate
yesterdaj to weaken the Civil.Service lull. An
injurious amendment was adopted in t be Assem?
bly, by which the police departments of m. ns
were exempted from the provisions ol the bill.
Ii is now propoeed to exempt oleo the dre de?
partments. To emasculate the nu asm.' still
more, a s< pareto bill has been Introduced in the
Senate making it unnecessary Cox soldi.-rs and
sailors of the late war tu undergo an.\' examina?
tion whatever. All nf these propoeed amend?
ments an- mlachievoue. they aie partly in?
spired liv a di siro to gain favor with a class of
nun who are believed to have a great deal ot
political influence.
The revelations before the Assembly Investi?
gating Committee yesterday show conclusively
that the Polios Department ia the one most in
n, id of the good effects of this reform. 1 he bill
does not effect men already in office, lt applies
to new appointments only. Hence policemen,
firemen and city employes In general can have
nu valid objections to it. Il is rather in their
favor, securing them iu their placea. There is
not tbe slightest reason to believe that the po?
licemen and firemen would object to naring the
bill appi] to their departments. And their ob?
jections, if niatle, would bo entitled to no
weight.
li is the politicians who want to exempt, the
police and tire departmental lt would prevent
their recommendations from having such weight
ns to 01 erootne any rule or regulation that might
he in existence In (regard to admiaalon to either
department, lt was shown before the Assembly
Committee yesterday that the police appoint?
ments are practically divided among the lour
commissioners, and that the men are paaaed
upon the reroiuim.ndutioiis of well-known poli?
ticians, including members of tho Legislature
from distant counties. The same practice pro
rails in the Fae Department. Hoih tbese
branches of the Municipal Civil Bervioe mora
than any others -should be enfiieh flee from
1 olitical oontrol, I bal eau only be done by the
application of the Civil Servite law, which will
place nil applicant*on an equal footing. The
policemen are well paid. The bill \\ hich j?.. ? <l
tue Legislature yeeterday will probably be tho
means of giving all policemen salaries of $1,200
each. In addition, when worn out, they ure io
in- retired on ball pay, ami Cor thal purpose
twenty-five pei cent ol the excise money is to
be appropriated. There are noothar city em?
ployes sn well favored. To leave these men,
who control the criminal olaasee of the city, a
prey to politicians would be a greal blander.
As to the soldiers and tailors, it is safe t<> say
that thej donni ssh for the passage of snob an
inn.ini.in ni to iln-law as tin- one proposed for
their special benefit. When the bill comes up
on Monday night it is tn be In.ped ihul tho
amendment made In thu Assemblj as well as the
one- proposed in the Senate srill be killed Tho
anselm-ol membera who ara diainclined input
themselves on record should not be allowed to
defeat this important reform measure
BOLLING BARBELS OUT OF SIQBT.
The week has brought a fair allowance of
declinations bj Presidential candidatea. Ifter
initiii. ai.tl careful con lideration, lt iaaolemnly
an non need, Mr. Taine, ol Ohio, has decided that
be will nol be a candidate. Also, notwithatand
ing all previous denials on the same subjeot,
Mr. Tilden Informs <ituei.il Cordon that be
would noi a.-.-. pt a nomination, nnd is reported
aa aaying that he baa another letter of positive
refusal to make public before long. 'Ihusho,
likewise, baa definitely decided. The nnsophis
ticated person might suppose that these aii
iioiiiiceiiieiit.-i would make the prospect nun h
dearer. Hut they only make darkness risiMe,
On the lace of things, this readiness of
Democratic candidates to withdraw, siiicc. Con?
gress began to show of what foolisiuiess lt wno
capable, looks like a recognition of the faet that
Democratic chalices are waning. The wa-ste of

and smnii, appear tobe impressed with ihe truth
of an observation made in Tug Tuiiii sv. some
mon;hs ago, that the people were not in tho
nni'iil to nominate any man who sought the
honor for himself with TisJhlo oogorncits It has
como to be tho prevailing opinion, we perceive,
that the nomination and the lillico are both
likely to bo ottered to somebody, ami not
clutched by nome1!.ely, this year. Mr. Payne
und Mr. Tilden belong to the category of u bar?
rel " candidates. It, pains tneh nen to be too
conspicuous. Perhaps Mr. Payne's Monda havo
Concluded that his three, barrels, ol' oil, whis?
key and cash, hail heroine too clearly exposed
to the publio gaze fol this season of tho year.
It. ba^i not been noticed that they have
been much disconcerted hy tho latest
announcement, nor uro they ruefully
going up and down searching for some
other man. On the contrary, Mr. Tilden takes
pains to recommend Mr. Payne M the Lot can?
didate, though convinced thnt he will not eon
eeiit to run. Nunn of his friends seem to think
Mr. Payne's little letter, in which he ex?
plained tlmt he wa* not oppooed to a ploted ive
tarifl, a waste of human effort. In bet, if it
were really Intended that a man should
bo taken into a convention backwards,
so to speak, against many protect! and
by the resistless will of the people
Bpontaneoualy uprising, he would find it con?
venient to write just such a letter?and, soon
afterward, to conclude and formally announce
that he was not a candidate.
FIVE TEAMS OF SILTBB COINAGE.
It is now live years and a quarlor tinco tho re?
sumption of specie payments. At thal time, the
Treasury held but little silver, the Bland-AUiaon
act having been in operation only about t< n
?ootha. It held $16,697,338 of tbe standard
dollars, and had outstanding only $413,360
silver certificates, so that, with $13,860,19S 55
in fractional silver, tho Treasury owned
$30,14 1,17:?-<V> in silver of all kinds, [tn ? bal?
ance in coin, including the bullion fund "was
$174,976,064 93 on the daj "I n lumption, so
thal it held in really available gold
?fl 1 1,832,491 38. A part of this was in b
but it has all sincc-lieen accounted for in - lld.
A deduction of aboul $700,000 mny be made
for "unavailable funds." bul the Treasury
clearly had ovei $144,000,000 in gold, in ev?
il? ol' certificates <>ut, Interesl duo, called
bonds, and special trust fonds, whieb sum w.is
available for redemption of notes.
P now has ieee than $84,000,000. Ot
$150,919,315 93 reported aa cash available,
A pi il 1, the atatemenl of a&ets and liabilities
shows thal over $66 930,000 was in silt
cm er. il hy certificates outstanding.
Tin- practical result of live year-, then, has
heen to add about $37,000,000 to the amount
of ailver held, and not even in pretence repre
tented by corticatee, and to draw ontof the
Treasury aboul $60,000,000 ofthe gold accumu?
lated for thc purpose of resumption.
To make the matter worse, there are in cir?
culation ie 100, OOO.of silver certificates
which, though theoretically deducted from the
silver held as it they were to be redeemed by
moana of it, are in reality received at the custom
houses Instead of gold, ami if redeemed at all
will virtually take from the. Treasury u like sum
ingold cuni, lu othei words,if theoe certifi?
cates should Ixi employed exclusively iii jnty
metit of duties instead of gold, in six months
the Treasury would have no gold left whatever
for the redemption of its legal-tender nut. t.
This is the situation when a large in ipniiy of
Demoerata and a small fraction of Bepublicansin
the House vote to Increase the coinage of silver
dollars by $30,000,OOO, more or lest, in order
to make u profit for tho speculators who have
bought np and are holding t In- t rule dollars, lt
such a measure should become law, every man
who hud an] [lower to stop it ami did not use
thal powei would bo held to a strict ri sponsi

The Treasury is gaining a little, rather than
losing, fur a day oi two. Since April 1, it has
taken in 93.110,790 gold certificates, losing only
$407,(503 gold. But it has pnt out #206.970 moro

Then (sons thing that wa know. The vast goth*
sumption of a nation of tifty millions who eat inure,
wear inure, ami use more thar, any ofter nation oa
earth of one hundred millions, actually has beeu sup?
plied, by theaiduf hoineproilue dun, not only without
a general rise but with a general decline iii pries.
Hie growth of the nation has not been checked.
Industrial development has not been gained
by crowding ihe massoo down to a
worse condition. On tho contrary, a growth
in consumption ho marvellous that to the r.uideut of
statistics it seems well-nigh incredible, has betti
met, nnd without lifting prices. This is not the?
ory, but fact. What might have happened if the
nation had produced less for it* own needs, any
man ran guess, but no mau can know.
The wonderful growth of ttiiscountry was not ex?
pected by any one. The wildest predictions made
in 1800 fall short of 'he solid facts that we see ia
1884. Where disunion Moated inevitable to our
wisest friends abroad, we saved union. They
looked for anarchy,! we restored order. Th-tm
counted upon fail;.ie to glow cotton by free labori
we produced 3,000,000 bales more than slave labor
lm.1 ever raised, they Boated repudiation} we re?
sinned tpeda pivtneiits. lu I88t no man living
expected to BBB 190,000 miles o,f railroader 160,000
miles ol' telegraph in this country. What no man
ia his wildest dreams anticipated, we |igy well
doubt if the cold calculations of bunineM men
abroad would havo provided for. Tbere lt iii war?
rant for assuming that, if wo had not increased
production, foreign industry must bave supplied
all our wants without a vise in prices.
i he history of every trade ls crowded
with easer of violent uihance in prices caused
by new demands. Grinding monopolies have
lieen cursed by consumers in all lan
i? Hajjes. Beyond these in. iden ls to all trude,
there were spci.il reasons for failure to supply our
strangely expanding wants. This country was
known to have natural resources in many respects
ihe tluest in the world. Were stringers likely to
stake their money upon a belief that we should
never develop tbeae reaouraeaf We havo the great?
est supplies of iron and coal in the worhi. Had it
been known in l*t)0 that wo were going te build
i?0,?M>0 miles of railroad in twcnty-tlireo years,
would anybody have expected us to depend ujtoa
foreigners tot the lien! What Enghehmaa would
lune put B million into mills and machinery to sup?
ply thia demand, knowing that au act of Congress
could at any time drive him tioin th.s market? Is
it true that sober business im-u st;.k- their furtunes

Bul theqttestlen now is whether we can aflbtd to
take this -.ame risk, ofter we have spent largely
to build iil> Industries of our own. lt has cost
us a great deal of ti:,ie and motley, but
we have brought our orchard to soch a state that
it supplies our wants. Now Mt. Morriaoa would
out it down, treating to net eheapat fiuit from
our tu-iirhl ors. Because tbs ie\> bushels they have
teft eell very low, he fancies their while crop can
