The French guests were properly welcomed
yesterday by tho American Committee In
cbt.lgo of thc Statue of Liberty. All the ar?
rangements scent to have been made and car
Tied out in good taste ; and if tho programme
on Thursday passes oil as well the unveiling
4>erenionie8 will bo a great success. Mean?
while, every one Will bc gratified to know that
the pedestal and the surroundings of the
Statue aro approved by M. Bartholdi, lie has
ho suggestion to make except as to the terrac?
ing of the old fort walls, which can be readily
cairiud out. This ls what comes of having au
able Pedestal Committee.
The Slate Committee continues to receive
proof .that American workingmen are waking
up to the fact that to support the Democratic
party is to help free trade, ThU is due iu
part to the frankness Tof British newspaper
Writers, who admit that through Mich agencies
Oe the Cobden Club England hopes 'presently
to see thc protective tarllf policy of the
Vuited States abandoned, Mr, Hewitt's
?Hoged membership in the Cobden Club will
hardly gain support for him, among the Irish
fotcrs especially. Ami even if he were not a
Xheniber of any free trade organization his
anti-protection tendencies aro enough to dis?
courage all.thoughtful New-York Workingmen
s!roni votingifor him.

c lit pu V. lean voters In New-Jersey who pcr
Mtipce think it does pot matter much tn this,
kpUfttMTmitiXfAUmu\ politic*, whether their
fijalty tfiowphj at thc pcslii next Meek or not,
tj^'^gfiitoa'iivlandj'tilcct Apon tho toatt I
[pr ?'tr
presented in an address to them, issued b?
their State Ccmmittoo and printed in thli
paper. "The Democratic candidate foi
Governor ls the recognized representative ol
corrupt political rings, whose 'bidding, li
elected, he would certainly obey?at least then
is no evidence in hil career so far which in
dieates that lie would nat do as, his " bosses'
told him. Bit of Oft) tain Howey no^OUe has
charged that he does not fully represent thc
rank and fllo m tho Republican party. Bil
ability, his character and lils intelligence evciv
where coaimanil respect. Between two midi
candidates Mintelligent man devoted to th)
best intele^ts oi thc Commonwealth shouli
hesitate a moment.
Whatever else Republicans forget, the j
should not fail to cist their full vote for mern
hers of Congress who will defend honest money
I tiinl the protective turill. Mr. Bland has fivei
l notice that he moans to try for unlimited silvei
i coinage next winter) the election of Reptibli
r can instead of Democratic Congressmen nexi
\ week is the only' thing people can now do t<
?J restrain him and his followers in the preseni
House. Mr. Morrison is pressed hard in nh
I Illinois district, but.like a man ho declares that
. j ho means to stand by his principles, aad Um
election of another Democratic House would
encourage him and others ot his belief to renew
) ' their raid ou tho tanti next winter. The de
i feat of about thirty free-tiade members, 01
j ' thirty ni embers who pretend to be ? as good
I ! protectionists as any ' when they aro at home,
but who vote at Waahingtoo for a Bpoahoi
who will again make Mr. Morrison chairman
of the Coiumltlee on Ways and Means, would
hate a wholesome intluencc.
It ls not Impossible that tho election may
result in deckled Republican gains. If roten
In Eastern districts do their duty, the gains
will bo largo, For in (Hilo the overthrow ol
the dishonest! apportionment made by Demo?
crats loaders it probable that tho Republicans
will gain il ve members, it not more, In Indiana
therein reason to expect some gains also, and
in Michigan tho Democrat's cannot make cats
paws of as n,any Greenback voters as they did
two years ago. Ia Wisconsin thc secret circu?
lar Imploring all Dcmociatjc postmasters to
take "an intelligent interest In sustaining the
President's party," and particularly to "seo
personally w thai every vote is got out, openi
the eyes of some who voted for Cleveland and
reform, and hi Iowa gains nie promised by the
Republicans. In Connecticut', also, and even
in New -Jersey, then; are opportunities to make
Congressional gains, and tbe Republicans of
New-York ought to neglect in> proper effort to
strengthen the hand.-, of those who defend home
industries at Washington.
There is not a 'single New-Jersey district in
which the Democrats have a ci Mainly ol suc?
cess, partly because theil nominations have
been so bad that in several there are open re?
volts. The little Plato a russ tho river'gave
four times, as large a plurality for Cleveland
M the great State of New-York, and yet the
Ueju'ciiieaiis) oi New-Jersey have not snrren<
deled, nor gouo to sleep, nor abandoned the
flu ht, but n can lo help their {principles and
their industries by their votes next week, lt
nould lnv a creditable thing to the Republi?
cans of New-York if they also should retire
soiuo of the men who pretend to believe iu
protection and promise to ik-fcrnl home indus?
tries,, and yet elect a tree-trade Speaker] and
support a free-trade President, A few doses of
that sort ol medicine would put a veto on tai ill
agitation next winter, and go f.ir to insure, tho
country'a steady advance toward {jtaduatrial
prosperity. Every workingman ahonld bo
able to realise thc importance of preventing a
renewal of the tari:! agitation by Democrats.
Batfevery* workingman ought to know that
tho election of a Democratic majority in the
House this fall will surely meanarevival.it'
that agitation with greater vigor and confidence
than evor.
Democratic ? deals " in this city havo made
its government notorious for official rascality
and Incompetence, Even the men responsible
for these "deals" havo paid the homage of
virtue to vice hy denouncing them. Only last
year the County Democracy solemnly resolved
that" tho cause of good government and tho
cause of honest fldminlstratlon of municipal
aflairs " demand " that tho constant deals and
disgraceful trades between the rival County
Conventions and their favorite candidates shall
cease," Tammany was equally convinced of
tho need of reform. After denouncing the
leaders of tho County Democracy ai " political
mercenaries guilty of.a shameful abuse of pnb
Ue trust," ITammany referred to their efforts
iu the last State Convention to get it to support
Mr. Hewitt for Governor, ns "an attempt to
make a particularly disgraceful bargain or
deal," Rut as s jon as their oontrol.of the otficei
waa threatened the loaders of thees two organ
Lzations, under prenatal from Washington,
united lu another " deal," whh h has given us
Mr. Hewitt as their choice for Maror, with
Slevin, Dugro, Splnola, and others of tho kind
as their candidates for other responsible offices.
The question now presented to the people ol
this city Is whether by voting for Mr. Hewitt
they will perpetuate this nri.*g()vorninent,whii'h
both organizations havo condemned as "dis?
graceful,'' or whether they will put an end tu it
by electing Mr. Roosevelt, Tho success of tho
"deal" means the retention lin tho servicoof
the city of one-third more employes than there
ls need of | it n;cans no decreaso in the enor?
mous tax.'iti?>.!, and no improvement in the
character of tho government. Mr. Hewitt has
confessed as mach, In hld speech in Cooper
Institute last Friday night he said that ho ? did
not believe that tho taxes of tho city of New?
Yorklcauoroughtto bo reduced," atjtl he added i
"Tho reason I do not make Any prouises is
because I understand tho question lust as the
Mayor has stated it," In an eilort to break tho
force of his own failure Mayor Grace pictured
tho city as", "marvellously" well-governed
under "existing conditions," It ls hardly pos?
sible that tho Intelligent voters want a man for
Mayor who offers no hope ol escape from the
Intolerable burdons which now oppress them,
If wo aro to have any reform* and if we aic to
get rid of theso "disgraceful deals "it must
como through the election of Mr, Roosevelt,
Happily tho registration shows that the people
aro alivo to the importance of tho issue. It
seems now likely that tho "deal " candidate
will be defeated,
Count too Doust, whoso d'athhaa been an?
nounced in tho cable dispatches, was one of thc
greatest of European statesmen, For fifteen
years be has filled Important diplomatic posts
and been recognised tl OM of the most brill*
inn! of thc old school of Metternich Ambus
HiidoiS, IIi9 great WUrt Was the compium!-.!- nf
1S07, by which Hungary atm Austria were en?
dowed with separate l'.irllaments and united
ander a dual system of Imperial Administra?
tion, Ho did not devise this scheme, The
frrcnt Hungarian stiite-man Deal, bad iiioin.Mil
I twooty years befme and had never ceiled ;,,
advocate lit and to labor for lt. Bal Conni
Ton Donut had the practical sagacity to adopt
this baale of reorganisation after tho military
dofeats of 1800 had flflilMtfl the necessity for
constitutional ohangei. Ile rostored the Hun*
f j garlan Parliament In aecordat ce with thc
l ' Pragmatic sanction of l~2'A and with fonda
r l mental statutes dating back to tho Middle
Ages. Ho established a new Comtitntional
system for Austria. Ile continued with these
two Parliaments a trl[ile-headed Ministry for
Imperial affairs responsible to delegations
from each legi.slativo assembly. It was one of
the boldest and most original constitutional
experiments of the century.
Dualism was a Magyar conception reduced to
a political system by this Sax ni diplomatist.
When Introduced ns a tentative form of nov?
el inncnt In l^i-T it did not seem to possess any
of the elements of stability. The coalition
between Dc-ak and Henst was condemned af the
time by Kossuth's ardent disciples ami by a
compact opposition In Hungary headed by
TlSJ i, who Wiis destined to become ono ol the
champions of dualism. In tho western half of
the Empire parties and races were arrayed
against it. There was no expectation on the part
of Parliamentary leaders that the system would
form n permanent basts of government. Rat
now after the Inpse of ttventy years Count von
Benet's judgment ls vindicated. Administra?
tive unity haj been maintained unimpaired in
great crises. Political reorganization has been
promoted in each half of the Empire and there
has been uninterrupted progress In the direc?
tion of material prosperity. Du ilistn has not
proved a failure as was generally predicted
ttventy years ago. It seemed nn ImptMSibll
problem, like tho squaring of the circle, but it
bas been accomplished.
As Mr. Reedier returns from Europe he is
surprised to rind a member of his family
standing In tho way of General Tracy's election
as Pistrict-Attnrney. His dispatch to Mr. White
discloses perturbation of mind. The relations
between the Plymouth pastor anil thc leader of
tho Brooklyn bar have been most Intimate.
General Tracy was Mr. Beecher's confidential
adviser as well as eloquent advocate during the
famooi trial and championed his client's inter?
ests witta loyal devotion and distinguished
ability. The returning traveller cannot fail to
be disturbed bv tho sorry spectacle now pro
Bented of tho candidacy of ono of his sons.
That candidacy is in no sense a real one. The
PiohibitloB party in Brooklyn have no expec?
tation of electing Mr. Beecher, Be ls simply a
stalking-horse for District-Attorney Ridgway,
who hus been renninin.iti'd by the Democrats,
If he remains in the Held tho only poi
effect of his canvass will be to draw oil v ites
flinn Grenda! Tracy. In view of his personal
relations with the Republican candidate, pas!
and present, Mr. Beecher*! father will be likely
to be greatly distressed by thi.-* demonstration
of Prohibition perversity,
This feeling of distress will bc further em?
bittered when tho returning preaoheT learns
that his sun's eondut t ls a- Illogical ai it ls BU
gracious, He accepted the Prohibition nomi?
nation m the ground that it was necessary, as
a maller of public morals, fur somebody to
Stand for the principle of enforcing the laws
regulating saint.ns and gambling. General
Timer ns the candidate of tho Republican
party Is pledged to break up pool-selling aad
gambling on racing tracks in Kings County,
The law makes it the specific duty of the Dis?
trict-Attorney to suppress these growing e. Ila.
Tiie steadily increasing sentiment within the
Republican party in favor of temperance legh]
lation will als > Invigorate General Tracy's arm
ii) dealing with offenders against the Excise
law. Mr. Beecher cannot promote the inter?
ests of temperance by remaining in the field,
lie may imperil the success of a candidate who
stands pledged to'securo a thorough and effect?
ive enforciiieiit of thu laws up.-ittiat betti Ita
gambling and pool-selling.
The elder Beecher will bo deeply pained by
mable course. Il- will also be
humiliated by the reckless a-s.Hilts made by
fin- Prohibition candidate upon General Tracy.
It seems scat eely credible that, a reputable
lawyer should have gone out of his way to
misrepresent a professional colleague's record
ns the younger Beecher has done lu commenting
upon General Tracy's legal opinion relating to
the 6alo of liquor to minors. So monstrous a
perversion of plain facts completes the moral
ch ?ma talion of Mr. Reecher's preposterous
Objections have been raised against tho Phil?
adelphia scheme to provide trained nurses for
the poor, on the ground that some trained
muses are wanting Inhumanity; That .seems
hardly a reaaonablo ^arraignment, The supe?
rior etliciency of trained over untrained nurses
does nut neill to bc argued, being self-evident,
;unl already practically demonstrated by pro?
longed experiment, uf course, sines trained
nurses aro human beings, some ol them are not
well adapted to their vocation. There.will bo
found among them no doubt careless, negli?
gent, selhah, greedy, unsympathetic women,
beean e 6uch people aro found everywhere.
Rut being trained, these nurses will always
have the special advantage of knowing what to
do and how to do it, ami in moat cases they will
be able to cany out the plans of the physician
far better than an untrained nurse, however
sympathetic, could do.
It is perhaps to be apprehended .that tho high
tinges paid trained nurses will attract persons
Who havo no fitness for tho employment, Yet
this is probably uot a serious danger, f>>r if tho
wages are hi*s'h ono reason is shat much of tho
work is hard and disagreeable t and mercr-nary
people do not generally like that kind of work.
That the system of training nurses Is a good
one, and that it will be maintained nu il ex?
panded, is already certain, and the latest exten?
sion of it in the Philadelphia plan is a partied -
linly happy thought, Hue isa new way by
which wen!thy and charitable peoplo cando
good to the poor. A comparatively small sum
will provide tho wages and subsistence of a
tiaino'l nurse in^perpetuity. Any hospital that
lias adopted tho system will undertake to give
fiuchanuise training; will in fut administer
the trust,- Tho nurse so provided could be
reserved entirely for the po >r. Just this thing
has in fact been done in a few instances, but
there Ofjght to be immy such gifts and bequests.
Tho need of a nurse in a poor family all the
bale members of which must-work hard through
their waking hours, is imperative. No amount
of love an 1 Willingness <m the part of these cnn
Overcome the natural exhaustion resulting from
mci Ksjnt toil, it ls In [such eases ti.at tho
trained nurso can do the most good, ami no
ono will appreciate this more <iulck!y than tho
poor themselves. As to ill-adapted nurses,
when the worst is I lid thc hospital physiclaai
ought to be able .to exercise a certain diseriml
nation In selecting their lippieutioi s, and with
sufllcicnt cine the rough and unfeeling auraei
might gradually bo eliminated, Rut trained
nurses ioi tho peot are wanted, sad nl.ould be
supplied. _

Thc French steamer Bretairno, with M. Har.

the great Prattle of Liberty on Tnar*day, lay quietly al
Qusrsntlue Sunday night, and (tarted shortly arter day*
light and after the Health Officer's visit to steam ap te

had p.anne i to go down to Quarantine In Willum II,
Starbuck'* steam yacht Tillie and take off the Frenob
guests, but this part of the programme waa abandoned,
by reason of several exasperating delay*, and tbe Tillie
finally cbaaed the Brotairna up the North River and
picked up the French party at the Transatlantic
Company's pier. The reception, for Bil that, when ll
came, made up In heartiness and good spirits
what lt lacked in formality. There were a breakfast, a
trip to Bedlow's Island, a run around the harbor, a lit?
tle sp. e. ii making and a luncheon ;and then tbe visltora
were tak.n to the Hoffman House, all delighted but
tired out and unite ready to lie on their oar* till the
formal reception this evening la tho Acvlemy ot
The Tillie rame down the East River from Portehester
eeriy yesterday morning, with Mr. starbuck aboard, and
moored aboat half past 7 alongside of tho lin .- ? Office
pier, A iiet.se fog buug over tho haroor and everything
pointed to a cloudy, disagreeable day. Governor"*
Island even wa* partly hidden la the mist, and fnrthar
over to the southwest ono could eetcb a glimpse only
now sud then of the big god tess's heal or torch. A
few members nf the committee straggled np from time
to time, and by 3 o'oiock everything was In
readlneaa to shove the yacht off, (senator
Evarts, the chairman of the committee, had not arrived,
neither had General Schofield, representing the United
-tap?* Government. It waa deel led to run over to Gov?
ernor** leland for General Heboflald and tuen steam
down the Bay to catch the Bretagne on ber way up. AU
hope of getting to Quarantine in time waa abandoned.
Just as the Tillie got clear of the Barge ObbSS the tall
form of Joseph Pulitzer was sighted raming through
tbe gate and down tho pier. Tue yacht w is bar ked Ia
again, and the Kdlior of Ihe Werta came on purring and
panting. Five minutes more wore lost at Governor's
Island, where the Tillie could not maka a .aa ling. G >a
eral (Schofield finally got ona tug and was passel over to
the yacht In mtd-strotm.
By this time the fog hal lifted a gool deal
and the Bretagne, deckel from mast to
mast with gay flags ami streamers,
was seen standing o'' the Battery up the North River.
Three whistles wer ? sounded on the yacht and a small
brass cannon fired by way of a salute. The .leeks of tua
big steamer wore crowded, and Hag' and haudk. tchirfi
kept waving in ono continual greeting up the stream.
The Tillie passed the Bretagne and reached the pier
flist. The party on board tho yacht looked small after
tho crowded bulwarks of the big French steamer.
