A number of important appointmonts aro due
from Major GibbI ou or aboul Maj 1. It is a
striking eonimcntary upon tho way tho K'.vorn
iner.t of this city is administ'M'cd that th<? opin
ion gencrally prcvai'.s that notbing wili be done
nfti-ding tlio appointments until the return of
r'ichmd Croker from Europe. Tho advent of
the Tammfiny Etig Chief is gocordinglj awoited
witli interest aml impatiem *'. As tho tiuie nf
his sailinj; is uncortain, tho situation is really
painful for the men who aie on tbe on-ious ggti.
One of the bills whieh bocamo a law yc'iter
_ay wm ihat proTidiBg foi" tho ostablishment
of a bntanical garden in BrOM l'aik. tbia city.
This intolligenee eannot fail to be jjiatifying tu
all the people of Xew-York. Tho provisions of

upon tho foundation of such an institution with

An oflicial statomont has beon made ro<zard
ing one of the subjects whit-b 'Governor Hill will
assign for the Legislatuie's considei-ation at the
extra se.sion whieh may bo sumnioned. At
least. if the statement of M Tbe Wine and Spirit
Gazette" regaiding the Hill-^cliaaff Liquor bill
18 not oftlcial. it may be aeeepted as authori
tatire. The orjs-an of the saloons says that thc
Governor will incJude this mca-mrc in tho busi
ness to be done by the extiaoidirary sesslon.
This is highly interesting, but not impovrant in
:he senso that it moans legbtetioR on tbe
question. The -Senate, of ooiirne, will never
ra *- tho bill whieh is ace-r-ptable to (bg Ass8B_
bly and the s'.ilnons.

clde.1 to pggtpono, j[ not to ahandon. tho big
atr. ;o of toal-minei-s whieh had b'-on set for
May 1, This drtci-ion was leaohed at a session
of tho Hoard in Co'umbuv Ofeio, j< -toiday. Of
iu wisdom there canoot be two opinions. Thc
gtrike was to be made in order to forre the con
cessjon of eight hours as a day's work. rni
granting of this demand could not reas.ina. ,}
be erpeoted, and a long and bitter at?|gW
would have ensued, accompamed. doBbtleso, 9}
much deprivation and suffering. I-ark of ta?
is assigncd as the renson for the present action.
lt showg prudencc in the Hoard to have grasped
the situation before tho stnke had actnally been
begun. # _
A icvelation of a startling character was mad**
yesterday regording Mr. Jobn T. Hill, wbo, ti
tho timc'of bis death on March 1. was tho pro?
idenf ot tho Ninth National Hank of this oi'y.
It appears tbat he bad for tom? timo made uso
of the bank's funds for spoculative ptnrpoeea,
apparently covering up his dishonesty by dc
positing securities bcloDging to certain estatcs
of whieh he WM a tnistoe. Tho embozzlomonts
amounted to more than $400,000. Mr. Hill al!
the time led an apparently straightfonvard and
upright life, and dicd with the rcspec, and
esteem of his frionds. to whom these disolosuros
liinst be a most painfu) shock. Fortunataly, tbe
bank's capital has not been impairod by the
erooked ways of its la'" pre?ident. Hank Kx
aminer Hepburn and the Clearing-Houso Com?
mlttoe unite in declaring that it is entitled to
tho full oontidenoe of its depositors.
THE LATEST FR?M THE CAXAL TWfB.
Governor Rill'i lateat movo in tbe interest of
tho canal rinp was niado in the Asscmbly yos
ti-rday. l.iko hia pio|?osterou? bill providing
for the app-intmiM.t of a non-partisan invcr-ti
gatifig commiesion \>y the moat unsorupulonis
and th^r-.u-rlnfoini* putisan in the State. c\QT\
hiins-lf, H wt_ -tile-1 to divort attention from
the L.itiffhlin re ; -n. It is a silly move, and
is worlhv of n-.*:.- if bogggm it atto.-ts that
tho DeOMMMtl of ti 1-egislature have been
acting th- ! n? ol ar.. ' hypocrites. Kver
sinco th*? Laogblin tesolu . m was Lntroduced
thev havo proti -'? 1 Bt*. that tho cannls ought
not to be inve-tigated ln Ika abaenoe of spoeific
chargeaj and aecond, that i-i onsa an investiga
tion wna oidor.l it ought to bo onductod bj
a non-partiaan body. Yet yesterday. ln uttet
disregard of these two porition-, tho Domoeiatie
leader of the As-ouiMy introducod resolutions
providing for tho a**pointinent of DO less than
six partiaan conunitteea to inveatigate mattei
no one pi whieh is the subject of a spei'iiu*
chargo!
Of courso, the Ropublicans of the Logislattuv
Will not bo awerved from tbe path of duty by
a device so di-boneai and feebh as this. They
know, as every Democrnt in tbe Legialaturo
knows. that these Ilili investigntins billl were
not introducod in good faith, bnt solely for po
litii-al effect. and with the forlovn bope of raia
Ing a diut whieh would bide tho Langblin canal
I'osolution. Do tbeao Democrata really believe
that thc people of this State are so dull as nol
to see ihrough their little game? Every in
telligont vot'i- who keepa bimaelf informed in
regard to what goea on at Albany is aware thal
the resolution whieh is pending ln tbe Senate
is tho genuine artiele, has back of it an earne-t.
patriotic purpoae, while tho Hill bills wbleb
the reaolntion inapired are bogus, were not con
oeived with tho desiro of proraoting publie re
i'oini, but for bunoombe and blnff.
Only two more days remain of the aession of
1891. Do the ob.-tnutionists of the Senate pro
poae to asstuno tbe responsibili'y of defeating
tho vYorld'a Vbu bill and othor meuurea in
whieh the entire Btate i? Intereated? Do they
proposo to light the battlo of the canal ring
until linal adjoumuient, no matter how sorious
inay be the injury whieh they thus Inflict upon
tbe publie 'welfaie? Havo they entircly lost
sight of what ls due to their own reputaiions, to
the solemn oatba to whlch they rabacribed wbea
thoy began their onreer as Senatora? These
cjiiestions wili soon answer thein.-elves.
XEtTFOVXDLAXD BIRT8 AT AXXEXAT10X.
Lord Salisbury'a attitude toward tbe demands
of tho Newfoimdlond delegates is bnital bnt
fiank. ile will eoncedc nothing. They have
advanced tho position of the colony far to mect
him, but he will not budgo an inrh to meet them.
Tbey must arcept his policy or he will chokc it
down their tbroats. They mott pass a colonial
act to enable him ta curry out his agreemente
wlth i'raiic, agreemente whieh he wfll not at?
tempt to force France to modify, or he will pass
an Imperial act and earry them out anyhow.
It was quite improbable, M we said long ago,
that Lord SalUbury woold in any inatcrial re
nect qualify his policy to suit Newfoondland,
but we acarcelj expected such a display of
downright ngiiaen in his declaiations. Its
efl'ect uiKin thc colonists will surely be to in
creaso in lnanifo'.d power tbeir spirit of roaiat
ance. They, too. are Anglo-6axons and the
an*wer of Sil William W'hitcway, who at last
scems to bave made the iiievnablc cboice bc
twec'a bis duty and his ambition, that the Brit?
iah nation cannot retain Newfoundland and pcr
mit Lord Sali.-d.ury to enfoicc coereivo nu-asnres
Bgainat the oolony's will, is an answer chaiactcr
Utio of Anglo-Saxon temper. The issuc, there
fore, is joined. Lord Salisbuiy must aeeept the
colonj'a proposals or thc colony will appeal to
tho Britiah public. Failing there, it wfll with
draw from the Lmpiio. it fails to perccne
wheieiu a wound is k-ss sovere or more endur
ablo when admini-stercd for France by Lngland
than for France by heisclf.
There m som.i sense in this. The liritish
Foreign Oflice, while professing to go with the
colunists lo their liiterpivtatioii of tho Freneh
Shore treaties is iu practiee acccpting tbe in
terpictation of thc Freneh. lt *ays to tbe Xew
foundlaadera: "Your view ii ocrrect, but
France will BOt BOOept it. und it is necessary
until wc can pertogde Franco to agroe with you
tliat you ihall subiuit tu her deounde." Of
couisc, if Hritish proteetion is worth ao more
than tliis, if it has not thc courago to n.aintain
frhat it ncknowledgcs to bo tho right, if it il
to servc only u enother ann in enforring Freneh
dcciecs, it will not itrike the Newfoundlaaden
as of much valtio. Thoy might better deal with
France directly, appealing a> a weak aud needj
people to a gattaat and generOM eneniy than to
deal tbfOUgb a nation with whieh France has
other qoarrele, whidi has no elaim upon ber
oeneroeity, and whieh is unwilling to ris-k a con
tlict in aid of a cauae ndmittedlj |nat

even of tha pnasagn of tbe Knuteford bill be
should consider naion witb the I'nited E

the British publie than as anything else. What
wo ahould do il the quarrcl were thiown on our
baada i? one tbing, but whether we ahould wish
to goqnira it is another. but, thero is undoubt
ed l'orce in the argument thut, whereus u trade

nt GENERAL AXP IX PABTICVlAB,
lnapectoi Bjrnea'a unauceeaaful purauil of Hv1
Water-it bntcher is made the sui.jcct of eun
giderable unfavorable oomment and not a few
iinfecling Jeate. Properljr enongfa the pollce
officiah have not taken the publie Into their
conftdence, and about all thal i- podtiTely
known iis to their work la that thoy have kept
busily at it and that it has thtll fai fniled of the
main objeet Kumeroua nireata bave been made.
bu' the mnrdorer is still at large. It may be
gseumed witbout riak, or at leaat we hope lt
may tha' the Inapector nnd hia men are gieatly
diaeppointed at their laok of aueeeaa. That they
are attnewhai honflliated and ehngrined ia cn
tirely probable, though tho [napector at an earij
srag'e of bis operationa took padna to denj thnl
he had ever aneered at the London police ot
boasted of tbe roperioritj of the New-Yoit
forc*. IIo ia doubttoaa particularly glad at thia
nionicnt that hc wns abrC to make that dentol,
for tho detectivea of Earopo ire watching his
movementa with eager Intereat, and perhaps re
rtraining with difflculty a diapoaition to araile.
Thla community haa nol diacloaed any
of exdtemcnl over the crime whieh perp
the police, but of couiee there ia more intereal
in the case and a kecner deaire to have the mur
dorcr caught than if the circumatancea and de
t-iils of bis bloodj work had not itronglj aug
Kestcd the Whitechapel mysteries. That he ia
more tl.an an iniitator of a tar more skilful
original ia not generallj beiieved, but atfll there
|_ doubt enough remainlng to provoke much
curioaltj a:* to tho truth. And aince the truth
will not be poaitiTelj known until the murderer
Iiu been caughl everjbodj abarea in some dc
gree the anxiety ol ta*- detectivea.
To confeaa diaappointmeat, however, at the
embarraasment of tho police is nol equivalent
to~a condemnation of their methoda in this par
ticular case, and still Ieaa la II equivalent to a
vote of general want of eonfidence. It la vat
fortunate that a murderer upon whom tbe at
tention of the foree is conoentrnted ahould
eacape arreat for so many days, but it would be
unjust to forget that the Departmenl whieh
doesn'l aucceed in lajing hold of a ?*inglo adroit
eiiinin: who is vny likely aided bj tho pe
culiar characteriatica of lunacj, is the Dopart
ment whieh has made and kceps New-York
credltably aafe and peaceful by day and night.

Mr llarria explaina that even the minlmum
dutiea pi-.posel by tbe French Governmenl
"would be well-nigh prohibitorj, nnd theae will
not prevent their bargaining with other nations
r0r prefeiential treatment over ouraelvea. . . *
The position is moal aerioua." ln cloeing, he
s-ivs ? " Thero aro ample reaaona for endeevor
ing lirst to coerce the United Statea and Franee,
.,..,,,- ti.at they are al preaent the most Bg
.-,,-ivc oountriea." This is guite a differeni
strain from that aang by aome Britiah atates
men nnd Jonmals when the McKinley 1 anlT
waa onactod. Then thej profeaaed to believe
that it would bo a greal bleaging to Greal Brit
ain. Now there are men of reoogaixed abilitj
[n England who warn thal country thnt It will
have to reeort lo Fmtection alao, or be ont
strippod in tho oommcrciaJ and induatrial ran*.
Mr. Harriaa plan is to eharge moderate duties
on all Importa other than raw materiala of man
ufacture comlng irom other countrios, whieh
will result in a greal cnatoma union of the Brit
ish Kmpire, he thinka, "pricea of food rather
bigher, and _Banufat?tured articlea of the higher
gra les also rather dearer." lle thinka thi
would "coerce" the I'nited Statea, and prob?
ably Franee also. But tolerably high dutiea
bave been exacted by Franee for years on im?
porta of breadatuffa withont materially affectlng
this country. la there even tho veetige of a
reaton for believing that Ureat Britain would
no*. be compelled to buy rjuite aa much wheal
from the United Statea B8 that country now
buvs. and to pay ita own duty?
Tbe certaiaty that tfreal Britain will not
reeort to anv such meaaure does nol make it
the loss worth while to oonaider what its resulta
might be for this eountry. The I'nited Stater,
is increaaing ln population at the rate of
1.2011.000 yearly, and so tdding about 5,000,
000 bushela yearly to Ita consumption of wheat.
But tho country would Increase even faater in
population if Britiah lawa abould make food
dearer in Great Britain. It would aot be at
all snrprising to see a large immigration of
skillcd and Induatrioua worhera from tbat coua
try in any caae during tlu- coming year, In con
Dection with the aameroua eatabliahmenta whieh
ti.o tariff is traaaplsnwng from Engllah to
Ameriean aoii. A recenl diapateh noticed the
large llult omigralion from Uverpool laat week.
and that these imniigrant.s weie of a BUperior
