Tho event itself, ami the sein?? in which it will be set, will be dramafie antl artistic in tho hiehest sense: and besides con? tributing to a meat worthy charity it will give much innocent pleasure, both to those who tak?? part in it and those tvho visit it. Of its linan cial success there can be no possible doubt, as it starts with a goodly sum in band, and it is sure to be visited by everybody who is any? body in and around New-York. The dead? head, moreover, svili be conspicuous by his absence. In no othe- city but New-York could such a colossal enterprise have been launched into success : and the citizens of the greatest theatrical town in America will undoubtedly show their generous appreciation of the busy artists who have spent so much ?iihor on it during the last few months The Society of the Sons of the American Revolution held its annual meeting in this city yesterday. WsVSB the Sons had transact? ed the business which brought them together they repaired to Delmonicoe and enjoyed the dinner, an account of which is printed upon another page. This society is growing in ?mmtjajth and usefulness, and siuc-e ita end and aim aro patriotic its prosperity furnish??* g resnor for general COnfttStnlstion on the part of all lovers of their country. It is a practical refutation of the charco that republics gre un? grateful, for it labors to keep alive the Stirling memories of th" davs thai tried men's souls, mem?.?i?a which aie s<? many incentives to un scllish citizenship. HALT OU ADVANCE?WHICH .* The local officiali who Oral sneered at Dr. I'ai-khurst's charges and then, when a sub? servient Gfiad Jury had answered to their ex? pectations, triiimphantiy reviled him, seem to sus|n>ct at last that something important has happened. We do not pretend to know just what their state of mind is. but there is con? siderable evidence of bewildermenl and solici? tud?? on their part. The condemnation and practical indictment of the Police Department l.y a Grand Jury of ven different calibre Bud conscience from that whose findings had so greatly pleased them was an miexpe?fed and grievous blow. It smote them right between the eyes nnd made them wince. In fact llie.v have been wincing ever since, and their bluster has not conceal? d their BBXiOty. The promo? tion of Inspector Byrnes waa unavoidable, but its consequences are not ihe l?ss troublesome to then on that account The new Superin? tendent of Police has declared that be will en? force the laws, and thus fai he has acted as ?f be meant preciseli what be said, lie dictated the sweeping ami significant transfer of police ?aptains. and nobody doubts that other changes are in progresa of contemplation which will probably amount to a practical reorganization of the force And now. as the latest in a Belies of events which are not less than startling to numerous members, allies and dependents of the Tammany government. District-Attorney Nicoli has obtained an extra Grand Jury for May for the specific purpose of trying excise rases, of which there is an enormous accumula? tion in his office. In view of all these facts it is not strange that there is deep ?listress in circles where tranquillity and confidence and comfort hare long reigned. No wonder that thousands of anxious inquirers want to know what il all means and what is going to nappes next. Is this one of the old. lainiliar. harmless pi? fences of virine, they ask. or a now and radical de? parture'.' Does Supertatendent Byrne? really intend to make things universally and perma neinly disagreeable for those who have known in the past just where to apply for protection against silly laws'.' Has the District-Attorney, after all, more respect for his own consci?mee ami for public opinion than for Croker'.' Ii was generally understood bj those rrbo was fat on violations of the excise law thai Mr. Nicoli would not molest, them. It was confi? dently reported that this was a part of bis contract with Tammany. It is due to him t?? say that he has always denied with vigor the charge that he was constrained by any such agreement, express or implied. He has said repeatedly that there was no use in attempting to try excise cases with the facilities at his e.mmand. that the ? alindar was loaded with them, and that grand juries constantly re? fusili to find indictments for the reason ihat they would merely add to a hopeless acumula ti?>n ; and ho has been at least perfectly aro sistent in declaring that if he could get another court the public would see a vigorous and per? sistent prosecution of theae offender?. Hut the Distriet-Altfinvy's dedaradJoBB oa this subject have not troubled th?? li<|ii<?r-deal ers or deeply impressed the community, for it was seen, or at least thoughi, that ho was con? stantly failing to make a full use of existing facilities. Now, however, the situation ?JSSIM to be changing. This extra (?rand Jury looks rnther ominous. "The World," with wiiidi Mr. Nicoli has Jong been in close relations, a> sorts that the saloonkeop?-is will hereafter rel.v in vain upon the District-Attorney'? office f>>i the "relief" which they "have always found'' there. Mr. Nicol] is to "?lean up'' the tlnni saii'ls of pigeon-holed indictments and be ready for Dew ? as. *, Hut is be? "The World" sax s so. but it does not quite believe its. If. Hear it: "Mr. Croker will be called Upon to decide whether he will call a halt on Superin? tendent Byrnes and tell him to ? as?? up on the Sunday closing raids, or antagonize the liquor deslere." Mr. Nicoli can clear out hi* pigeon? holes without the help of Superintendent Byrnes, but where will bla non esees com?? from if the police are to "ease up" on lh<? lew breakers? According to "Tho World."' it all comes back to ibis: Will or will not Croker call a halt? And wh?. is Croker? Is be the Superintendent's superintendent? la he the Hoard of Police Coirimianlonere? More than that, gaya "The World." Technically he is a private citizen, but " The World" is disposed to conce'!?' that piaitically be is the absolute ruler ?if New-York, for wh?ise decision Police ?", mmiasion and Strperintemdent humbly wait ifl .silence. Is "The World" right ??r wrong? Is Super? intendent Byrnes really powerless, foresworn, contemptible? We refus.? to think so. and are shall not change our opinion until he compels us t??. THE RIVERSIDE IMPROVEMENT. The Rivelalo? Drive i.s by common consent on?? of the i-'ITOh's ,if th?? metropolis. We are all proud of it, ami we all should stand to? gether in th?? determination that whatever is neiessinv to be ?lone to rendei it as attractive as possible to ilio ?realist Dumber shall ?,? done, and done promptly. Of I.it?? Tin; Tliili i m; sad nearly all the othei New-York papers have been fighting to preserve Central Park from vandalism. These efforts have been crowned with ascesa?.?there will be no gpced wa.v built in that supei1> pleasure ground of the masses. ??-?, let all who were engaged m that great popular crussdo Join heartily in the movement looking to doing as well b.y th.? Riverside Drive as bj Central Park. It aeetTa DO argument to prove that ?i the Riverside Drive is to be "a joy forever" to New-York - ets and Bo all ihe test of mankind who sooner or later conio here to visi!, it is noc<ssai;, that the water-front forming its western boundary shali belong to the cHj an?' shall be restricted and improved. Therefore, the action taken by the Commis? sion ? rs of the Sinking Fund at their last meet in?! is of Renerai interest. Controller Myers insisti'd that the water-front stretching from the railroad tracks to tho river ??????,G?? gC quired by the Department of Parks rather than by the Department of Docks. There may be room for discus-ion on this point, but there ? can be none on the main one, which is the d?? sirnbility of New-York asserting bor right of eminent domain to the end thnt the water-front shall contribute to the common enjoyment, and shall not, by being left in the hands of a Bom? ber of private own?*?*?, who may ,?. wnu jnilv not be public-spirited, become an eyesore ami a nnleaiaon The aulhorities of New-York for what thej have done in this matter are entitled to Ihe heartiest commendation. In deciding to ac? quire in behalf of the city the entire rivet-front from Seventy-second-st. to ???-hiindred-and twenty-ninth-st., they -have done onr city g service whose value it would be difficult to overestimate.

In th<? vi.-is-itu?i? ? of human ?progress a festival ron*ecrated in Ihe youth ,.f the world to the life-giving and orderly processes uf Nature has been transformed in the cynical old age of the ?????-?? i-ontinenl Into a I)i?'s [rae of social discontenl and unrest. In London's llyde Park where Henrj VIH once Mini a-Maying with his Queens labor Rtassea ?t? forcea to-day, and Socialist* seek to ?nflame the passiona of uorking people organised In trade* "nions. In Prance, where Ihe druids were scc-istomed to light their aignal-fires on the hillside? in honor of Ihe old-ti. Fcasl of Sowers, Anarchist outrages are dreaded and police and Rendarme? are anxiously multiplying precautions to avert d.\ namitc explosions and in? cendiary lires. Spain is virtuali* bronghl under martial law t < > proven! riotoua demonstrations ,.f the working dasses. In Belgium and tier many labor parsdea and Socialist masa-meet ?nga are t<? be 1?'?|>? under rigid police snd military rcrtraint, and the effi I of revolution? ?r- literature scattered broadcast among toil? ing millions is to he dosely matched from hour to hour. Even in Italy, where the whole month of Ma.v was once dedicated to Apollo and it? every day was a foyoua il.irai fesjst, the ap? proach of the ancient festival is heralded with attests of Anarchists in the leading cities and with baleful rnmon of dynamite outrages and revolutionary frenzy. The gracious ?,>?.? of the May, with ber lap brimming with the part* Mowers of spring, is no longer enthroned in the workaday Europe of to-day. In her place reigns i!ie blcoi eyed Goddess of Pnrewl In an atmosphere electric with suspicion, ?hove her dishevelled ringlets flares tbe incendiary's torch. At her feel blossoms the bomb \\ it h its flaming fu???. I'nll in ber face streams the hut breath of the toiling tna-ucs discontented With their lot. Such is Ma.v Day in the <>|,| World, s day ?if foreboding, suspicion and l?atleaane*?, when kings tremble on their Ibnmes snd the heavies! battalions are massed in banacks and liovcrn mente feel the strain and tension ol a tremen duns effort to Uc.'i? the destructivo forces of social dfa-quiet under inflexible control. The charm, simplicity and loveliness of the trad? timiai May l>a> have paascd awaj from En rope, I ? 111 not from the face of tbe earth. Here in America there la s survival ol tbe Rracimis -pnociations of the springtime festival.

The (teneral Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church will assemble in frmaha to morrow under hopeful auspices. During the four .?ear? since it last met in this city the growth ami pNnperity uf the Church have been ?larked. The biahopa, pastors and sti-nion aries have been faithful and sealous. Nev\ churches have been Imill at the rate of about one a day, and the moral influence of the de? nomination has been poworfully everted |? many good eausass. In spite of the croahings of a few pessimista, tho rital and sortami en? emy of th?? Church do?'s not appear to have lessened, and itM outlook for the fut tire is lni?;iit with promise. (if course, it has its Immiti'- questions and vexations problema. Of course, ai'-o, n has to recognise certain weak spot? jM it? machin? ery, and face the fad thai there is a Beamy side to its achievement?. For it in pre-eminent? ly a Church militant, and claim? no Infallible he?dom from mistakes. .Moreover, it is % Church in which the human equation playa a laitfe part. Its constitute.n m a strange blend? ing of imptnrh?ism and (hini-ciary. admirably adapted, indeed, fur doing good and aggressive work, lint at the same finn? poeseaaing all ?lie defects of it? virtues. It? rulers, being human, have not always bet? BBVed from mistake?: and ils zealous and ambitious workers, because of their zeal and .'iniliition. have doubtless at times been tempted t?i Indulge, in rJoubtfu] po? litical methods. Mitt the fly in the amber should not distract our attention from the beautv aud value of the lewel itself; and, pJt/u all. the things to be criticisM in Methodism are of small a.count compared with the featuits in it deserving of admiration and praise. Aa g religious impulse it la one ?>f Ihe most power ini factors in American life, which no Intelli? gent man whether Methodist or noi ran afford | to Ignore. An I it is oapecislly strong with the ! plain people, who are as yet untouched by the I dilettanteism of inicil<Otual doubt or the llne ! spun sophisms of a hybrid culture. ? number of interesting ?ienominatioiial ques? tions will come up before the present Confer? I once: but it is not likely that any radical action will be takes la regard to them. Of Aese questions, that of admitting women as dele? gates to th?? <?"lierai Conference has enlisted the ni"st ?attention during the last four years, Though it has not received the requisite three foiirths vote ?'f ihe Annual Conferences, it has developed a great deal of strength, especially in the West : end its advocates will beve a good majority in the Conference. Though this will not enable them to ?any the measure, it will encourage 'hem to further efforts. In the meanwhile, the attitude of the members on this question will BBSS <>l' less influence their attitude on other questions. There are rumors, for instan?'??, that Dr. J. M. Buckley, the doughty opponent of women, may be ousted from the ediioi-ship of "Tho Christian Advo? cate" "f this <ity. and tome "woman's man" elected in his place. It is even whispered that Miss Prances !.. Willard will be nominated for ihe office b.y the West?? Methodists. Then ,;.id q""sii?.f giving the laity an equal ? presenta .*~'.? with the ministers will come lip, as Well as the question of electing Inore bishops, and incidentally of electing a colored iiahop. I.'esnlutioiis will siso be introduced to giv<? the bishops diocesan Jurisdiction and io limit their terni of ??????.? to four years. It yiill be seen that thes,? ami other similar matters which will ?omo up for discussion are all questions <?f int.inai economy. They re? late soi.|y to the working efficiency of the ecclesiastical organization ? ami naturally and inevitably, therefore, good men in the church differ in their views concerning them. Meth? odism has no such fundamental questions f?> v. tri.? as thoso concerning the Bible and the Creed which are now agitating the Presby? terian Church, its ministers have not meddled much with the speculations raised bv modern biblical criticism; aad the? appear to have found the Creed of their Church comprehenaivi enough t>> Include all variations of individual ??pinion. The truth is. Mcth disiti docs no) run to speculative theology. The impresa of in? tense ami concrete practicalit,*, which it re? ceived from the master-hand of John Wesley it still retains In a very large Bieasure, Its lead? ers spend ?it'l?? time sitting on the watch towers 1 ?king for " tn bos" or " movements." They ar.? mostly down in the trench* s doing pioneer practical work : and as .1 result the "burning questions" thai confront them relate almosi entirely t>? ?I. tails ,.f practical adminia (ration. While auch ?i't,-ti<m- may not appeal powerful?1,) I ? th?? imagination, then right ?olii fi-in i? nest important to the welfare of the Church; and Methodists hav.? ?., reason to apologize f"i the month which they trill take in talking th?m over ani voting <>n them.
