Bay that they can provide for no more without

Of Pensions, who made official inquiries on the
lubject. says that at least 9,000 veterans are
in almshouses, or iecclving relief from chari?

This i? not creditable to the Nation.
The observance of Foref?thers' Day by the
New-England Society of New-York was in
keeping with the metropolitan character of the
city. The din nor last night was a great

Nothing weakens the Knights of Labor bo
Inuch as a belief that they are on too friendly
terms with Socialists and Anarchists. The
future success of the order depends upon
fMnoving the grounds for this belief. Mr.

enough to see this. The executive order that
bas been issued forbidding t}ie use of the
orgttoizHtion to aid Anarchists cornea none too
aooa. The BocisliBts, who are a smrtll minority

P Ur. Parnell apparently does not favor the
'pitta of carr, puigu."' Ho ls said to regan! aa
Improbable tne assert ion that tt the plan " has
procured aba tem eu is in rent where ck rv thing
?lau hus foiled. But he believes the position of
Ilia Irish ten ante to bu worse than when he
Introduced hit Ana-Eviction bil 1. Mr. Purnel .
will lead an attack on tho whole policy and
action of the Government. In laking this
course while discountenancing "the |.lan," ho
will secure the cooperation of tho ('lad*: ono
Liberals, wlic are said t4> have reached b con?
clusion antagonistic to the anti-rent campaign.
Mr. Parnell's courso in tbe wit. one for the
cause ho has at heart, lt will bo unfortunate
if its BBCBBBB is imperilled in any way by in-'
subordination in his own ranks, aa is reported
to bc tl.u case. _
If the Legislature does its duty it will
promptly repeal tho mandatory clause in tho
lair" in |*_sj___rd to thc retirement of policemen.
Under this statute, th- Police Boil- ia obliged
to it-riii- members of Ibo force upon their own
application after twenty years' set vice. During
this yeal seventy-three have been sn retired,
adding annual pensions aggregating aM8,900.
The number promise* to be much larger next
ycai, and thi* has led the _t___*d of Poll?- t?.
protest a-'.'iinst any reductiou in their estimate
for salaries, as the na expended baia n e*? goes to
tho pension fund. The parpens* of the Board of
Etttimate la reducing tho appropriation is to
i .ill public attention to this natter, und compel
tho money for pemwons to bc ajinropi lated Itt a
rental way instead 'if by this indirect ngetbnd.
The object is a good one, nnd as the Police
Commissioners aro oppo-ed to the mandatory
clause in tho statute, they ought, so far as
possible, to aid the Board of EttUuate in this
matter. An officer in the army must serve
forty years to secure rotinment on his own
application. Why should a police office, in
New -York be r<ti: ed after twenty years I
RAILWAY POOLS ABD LRGI8LATI0M.
The prohibition of railway pools in the Inter?
state Commerce bill is not. likely to bo veiy
etT -tlie for good or r-vil. u An honorable nn
dei-tandiag bet Ween gentlemen," socb as the
anthracite coal companies made some time
ago, respecting which tho autti rities of Penn?
sylvania nm tryititr to get sotisfaetory tes'i
mony, itt % diflicult thing to prove, lt it were
prohibited by National legislaiion, the ilil.i
culty would bo much increased; railroad mana?
gers who would then agree at all would take
care to do it in a manner bo Inforirittl ns to
evade the law, its penalties and its Inquisitions.
But the apparent impracticability of fully rm*
forcing tbe nieasuie, if enacted, is not conclu
?Iyc reason against its adoption. Though im?
per fectly observed, it might do some pood.
Tho broader question is raised by the railway
opponents of the Interstate Ci.mme:ce bill,
whether the formation of pools ought tobe
checked, whether tluse ag! cements ate in
any respect opposed to the public interest,
and whether they should not be em unatred
and by law rendered binding. Mr. diaries
Francis Adana, whose serv.ces on the Massa?
chusetts Hallway Commission entitle his opin?
ion to freight, has foy aoie time advocated the
legnliztiion of pooling contracts, ami nuiii
lained thnt they are beneficial to the public.
[t Itt evident that the railroad managers gen?
erally believe that the organization of pool-, if
not in all respects _a_t**__e.__a has nt least anvil
the companies from severe loss, and served
their interests materially. They urge, also,
that scarcely any other thing has been cheap?
ened sn much as the trmsporting of freight,
since the railroads began to combine for the
suppression of unregulated and destruct ito
competition among themselves. The public
sees that rates are marvellously reduced, ami i*
told that this is a consequence of the pooling
.system, or at least is not retarded thereby,
Tlie popular impression that railroad pools
aro merely conspiracies -gainst the public wel?
fare is not sustaintd by the history of transpor
tntioo in Ibis country. Tho object is to check
a competition which, if unchecked, puntosaa
ruinous to the company nnd harmful in tho lone
run to the public. The aim is therefore not in
itself hosile to the public good, although the
companies might, by agreement to maintain
excessive rates, do injustice, to the people. Bat
it is also true that the railroads have not been
able to agree upon excessive or unreasonable
rates. They have been able at times to main?
tain rates so far as to secure handsome profits.
Bat as a direct consequence honest investors,
dishonest blackmailers and desperate mais
have br>en encouraged to build new railroads.
The era of pools is the parent of the era of par?
allel railroad building. The trunk lines are
beginning to realize that the sort of competition
which they have thus brought into existence ls
more damaging to them than the (ort of com?
petition against which they sought protection.
The new roads fight for a division of the tralllc.
Uulil they succeed tho pooling companies have
to face losses. As soon as tho division of
traffic has been made, and Tates aro restored
with profits for all, other new roads are pro?
jected, and the end no one has yet been able to
discover.
Prohibition of pooling, therefore, would be
by no means nn unmixed injury to the rail?
roads, if it could be enforced. Nor is the build?
ing of too many railroads a blessing to the
people. The sinking in the work* of transportn
tion of more capital than can be profitably
employed therein is the reverse of a blcssiug.
The disturbance of values, even in old and
well-settled States, is not a blessing. In short,
it is not at all clear that thc railroads are not
making a great mistake la flinging to the pool?
ing system, and the prohibition, although not
fully effective, might do mare good than harm
to the railroads themselves, if it should dis?
courage combinations to which they aie prone
to rest rt, but which leally injure them moro
than the public.
FLA IS 8PEARI.\G TO JURIES.
Justice Putt's charge in tho Campbell divorce
snit offers a convenient baais for comparison
between English and Ameiican procedure in
jury cases. From the outline of the charge
furnished in tho general press dispatches, as
well as from the comments of our London
correspondent upon the directness and vigor of
the explanations to the jury, it is etideut that
Um judge's manner and method of presenting
the case differed essentially from the practice|of
occupants of the American _***"____ He left the
jury in no doubt respecting his own judgment
on the vita! issues of the case. Instead of sum?
ming up the evidence with judicial impartiality
and instructing the jury in relation to the pre?
cise nature of the issues of fact to be deter?
mined by them, he virtually discredited a large
mass of testimony, discriminated sharply be?
tween more and lost* credible witnesses, and on
critical points of the case threw the weight of
bia opinion heavily on one side. Probably
there is not a judge of enual standing in Amer?
ica who would venture to present a case to the
jury with tho Bame degree of lucidity and de?
cision. It is certain that if any ore on the
bench in this city (should attempt to imitate
Justice Putt's "manner, he would be accused of
interfering with the prerogatives of the jury.
It is an open question whether the practice of
F.nglinh Judges may not be followed by the
Ama-: i? ;m bench with excellent results. Many
of the miscarriages of jiihtice occurring in onr
courts might be prevented if the juries received
clearer, more definite nnd more positive in
struct ioiir, from the bench. Juries as a rule
are of an inferior order of intelligence. They
ure easily misled und unduly influenced by
wily advocates. They are wearied by intermin
a hie hair-splitting arguments reBpeotiug pomta
of law and tbe admi_sibility of evidence.
They are confused in their judgment of the
?Blue of te dimony by the devices of cross-ex?
amine!? by which honest as well as dull wit?
nesses uro rn trapped into absurdities and con
trad :ci ions. At the close of the trial they li*ten
in turn to the prcsimlation of tho case from
nppnsite points of view. If tho judge then
takes the evidence and reviews it with the
in .si ligld impartiality, without indicating by
word, tom- or gesture what is the trend of his
own (.i'iiiion, tiley will too often retire to the
jury-room in a dated nnd helpless condition
and a disngicemciit or a foolish verdict may
follow. In the M. Quaile case tho substitution
of a verdict for conviction in pince of eight
votes for acquittal to four against, it ls largely
to be attributed to the outspoken and vigorous
character of tho second charge. The ju?y
were clearly instn-cred respecting their duty
aad mihi.-it.'itingly performed it.
It is altogether probable lhat American
judges, from their solicitude lest their charges
s'iall seem one-silled, BBTitBBB or unfair, have
funned tbe habit of balancing evidence too
closely, of instructing jurien in too geneial
terms, nm! of delivering colorless nnd llabbv
ch inge* which fail to gigo requisite force and
direction to the deliberations of the jury-room.
A high-minded judge is naturally pleased when
his charge is approved on all sides as well
balanced and strictly impartial. Ile dteadl the
Imputation ol' having unduly influenced a jury
in con ing to a decision. He dislikes all ap
* eatances of interfering witb. the functions ol' a
Jory. In these reepecti certainly be needs to be
cautious and circumspect. Putt he is on tho
bei ch, just as tho jurymen are in their places,
for the supreme object ot promoting the high
emls of just ice. He neglects bil duty if be
.allows the jury to retire to their room without
clear, unequivocal and positive instructions.
This lt ii duty fiom which he sh mild not swenc
through a morbid dread ol bring accused of
bearing too heavily on one side or thc other.
A miscairiagc of jr_tio_ is the lamentable
ri -tilt which he should sec,, to avert by every
nu ans in his power. There cannot bo too much
plain-speaking to juries.
MORE ROOM FOR THE COURTS.
The Judges of the (onrt of Gem-ral Sessions
and District-Attorney Martino In their appli?
cation to the Board of Estirnata .ind Apportion?
ment for additional court-room have only
presented with greater force a need arbiefa bal
been r__Ogui--4J for years. '1'iine anil time
again, through ("rand Jury presi'iitmeiits, the
ut rei .'trices of the .Judges and th" comments of
neivsp.ipei.s, tbe iieics.s'ly of the removal of
thc nlllte of the Keciiver of Taxes from the
..eneia! Sessions building and of additional
facilities tor the trial of bail __-*_g has been
urged. Tlie plea of flic officials is disinterest.mI,
ns the fi'iiuatiiti of an additional part of the
court involves greater labor with no increase
in the Bomber of Judges ami prosecuting
officers. The city has ho many officials with
large salanes that when hone of thc-fl desire
to do more work without ttdditinnttl compen?
sation if would be a pity not t ""ratify them.
The Hoard of Estimate shouid act promptly
In favor of tbe Application. The offioiais say
that it is hardly possible to try the long and
bitterly contested bribery cases aad yet keep
the City Pi ison free of indicted persons, some
of whom are innocent* There should be nu
delay iii the trial of persons detained in prittOOa
and yet there should bo no valid excuse for the
potttponemeot of the bribery bbbbb. The results
of tbe recent bribery trials have been so satis?
factory to the public that everything ought to
be done to encourage the trial of more of tho
men concerned in these dishonest transactions.
Necessary room in which to work harder is a
_*_*??__ which an efficient oublie ______ has ix
rigltt vu muko. nnd to expect to seo grunted.
SOMEBODY TS IS A CORSER,
lite Evening Post's indignation is justly
arouivd l.y tho appointment of that utterly
worthless law-breaker, " Patty " W tl"li, to be
wanlen of the Tombs Prison. It follows Thk
TsiBUlfl. lead in pronouncing the conduct ol
the Coiiimissioners of Charities and Correction,
who made tho appointment, **shockingly dis?
graceful" and "an incredible piece of bravado."
It does not even stop here, though we are
afraid it will wish it had stopped when we open
its eyes a little. It wants something done to
prevent this criminal and friend of criminals
from being allowed to take the office into
which he has been boosted, lt even says this :
"Something ought to be done alsn to put tho
blame for this infamous appointment upon the
shoulders of the men who are sscretly respon?
sible for lt."
Urood for Thc Post I It Is right for once in
its life and we shall keep it to its word. Duos
it know what man is "secretly responsible''?
Dot's it know fiom u hom this fellow Walsh
drew his chief support I Doos it kuow that
upon tho list of persons recommending this
furo-bank-keeper, this "ruin in," this "ally of
thieves,'1 as The Pott calls hiu, is tho natue of
a man whom The Post has lauded as the very
pi ince of reformers, whose praises lt has never
fired of singing, and whose subtle schemes it
hal suppoited with blind infatuation T Docs it
know that William lt. Grace, Mayor of tho
City of New-York, l-cforim-r, Purga- of Munic?
ipal Corruption and -uccessnr of Hubert 0.
Thompson, lent his name and intliionco to this
"intamoas appointment"? Does it now want
- something dono" to put the blame, where it
belongs t
Come, now, lot ni have no shuning or
evasion. Lrt The Post tell Mayor Grace what
it thinks ot him, even if thc hapless cause of re?
form does disappear in the clearing.
THOSE LEAP ES WORTH STTOPS.
Theie seems to bar. arisen an incomprehen?
sible dispute about tho character of the shoes
made at the Leavenworth military prison.
These shoes were arraigned by General Miles
in his report on the Apache campaign which
ended in the surrender of _ref__.ia.Oj and sever?
al other officers corroborated his statements.
It was declared in these oflieial reports that tho
Leavenworth shoes were worthless; that for
the most part they caine to pieces after from
two days' to a week's wear; that tho uppers
parted from the soles in almost every cuso,
neither uppers nor solo* being worn out. It
was stated that the leather used appeared to be
fair, and that the fault was plainly in the in.in
afactare. General Miles said that several of
the soldiers were compelled to buy moccasins
for themselves, their shoes having gone to
pieces. Ile further stated that this circum?
stance was productive of considerable |0_____g
to the men during the long forced BWrehtttt over
a rough aud mountain.!SM country. Oilicial re?
ports have to be decorous nnd restrained, but it
was evident between the lines that tho General
thought it au outrage on his (rallatit troops to
furnish them euell wretched footgear.
The House Committee on Military AlF.iirs has
been examining the Leavenworth shoe man?
ufacture, und has como to tho conclusion that
tho articles cost too much, and that, moreover,
the convict factory is eoni-ieting with free
labor. They, however, (Iud (or assert) that the
shoes are not subject to tho Indictment pre
fttffted against them by General Miles and his
officers, and they say in offoet that the latter
have misrepresented the case. This ls a strango
eonllict nf positions, but il is so chiefly because
the attitude of the House Committee seems ab?
solutely untenablo. The QB|sti?ii whether the
shoos served to tho Boldiorson the Apache cam?
paign fell to pieces or not ls not ono of opinion
or judgment, lut one of fact. It is, moreover,
a qnestion so susceptible of pr(X>f timi con?
troversy concerning it must be preposterous in
the very nature of things. When General MU ea
and his lieutenants declare that the shoes fell to
pieces tfiey of course make that nascrtioii upon
personal knowledge, and nothing can be moro
perverie or ii rational than for tho House Com
mitttee to deny the facts ou general principles.
The truth is that it really was an outrage to
furnish the troops with huoIi shoes, and it is a
condemnation of the Leavenworth arrange?
ments that such a blunder should have boen
possible. Whether or not it is desirable to
close, up the industry at the prison, it is certain?
ly apparent that the man _ fact tires of the insti?
tution need a sharp overhanding.
