disclosed that only three of the jurors bad been

A muss-meeting ?ill be held in the Cooper
Fnion to-morrow evening to give public ex
piessjon to the strong sentiment in this com?
munity in fayor of sustaining the movement,
?^presnntt?d by Dr. Parkburet. which aims to
compel the police to do their full duty in en?
forcing the laws against crime and vice. Tho
? all for the meeting has been signed by a large
number of representative men of all professions.
If only a fraction of the people who sympathize
heartily with the work of Dr. Parkhurst and
the ?Society for the Prevention of Crime attend
the meeting, the hall will be crowded. Dr,
Paikhiust, himself will be one of the speakers.
There waa a stirring debate among tho
M?thodiste yesterday on the question of abol
?Hhing the limit of the pastoral term. The con?
servative element was strong enough to defeat
tbe report of the Committee on Itinerancy,
whose reeommendation on the subject was ?o
? adi* al as to be startling. Tbe strongest s-ieech
?$> Javor of tbe report was made ?,? ?)j. J. If.
King, of this city, whoso argument in favor of
keeping an cflicient minist??! In charge of one
church longer than live years trai presented
I with grout fosos. It was ???p??'?<1 out during
I the debate that tho proposed reform would not
| destroy the itinerant system, since rjsjMtori
would continue to ho appointed from yeai to
I year at the meetings of the animal (-(inferences.
One of the conspicuous triumphs of the Har
I n?i>n Administration it the s?itc?--?*?fnl Initiatlofl
and tirm e?lablishment of tlie poliey of Bed?
: procity. In tho solution of the novel and dilli
! cult questions thaT have arisen in connection
; wirh the Reciprocity section of the McKinley
Tanfi Act the President him??lf ha? taken an
; active part, and his wi?"lom and ready gia?p
, of any subject presented for his consid?r?t inn
have contributed largely To the s?ic(??? which
has attended the adoption of tins policy. The
review of the work done which is furni?l?rui
hi our Washington Bureau to-day shows that
l.ooipr??? iti ha? already passed beyond the stage
of critiiism and partisan attack.
A DJFPLRESCE BETWEEN PARTIES.
Two great parties ate ahsorbed in the work
\ of ?electing Presidential candidates. In one
1 party difference?? turn upon personal prefer
; enoes. In the other they go down to the hot
torn and concern tho gravest questions of Na?
tional policy. Many do not realize how groat
the enntrnst is, or treat it means. Hut it is
evitlont That (he Rcpulilii.in?, ar.? one party,
while the Democrats are divided in convictions
and In the very purposes fot which party or?
ganization exists. Some Kepuhlieans prefer
the nomination of 1?t*>i<]?rit Harrison, others
that of Secretary Maine, while suine favor other
candidates Hut no! the faintest na?e of a
dividing line, as respects the principles, pur
pns'-s or measures of the paity, can l?e fsund
between the friends nf different candidates.
Nobody advocates one rather than another on
the ground that ho is more or les? a I'rotootioii
ist, more or less in favor of sound currency.
innre or less in favor of honest elections and
defence for the lights of all citizens. Tlie
policy nf the party luis been one in which all
tho prominent candidates have 00B4 urrcd, and
which .ill have taken an active part in r*JM****ilif
and advocating. Contending thus for convic?
tions and National policies about which they
are united, I.epublicaus are chiefly anxious to
determine which of several men will most ef?
fectively and worthily represent their common
aims and beliefs.
Against them there is a mass rather than a
body of vot?is. No man can hide from him?
self the fad that (lifTcreiHos between Dcnm
crats are radical. They differ ahotit men. hut
mainly because thej differ uiore profoundly
and Inore widely about measures and convic?
tions. One faction prefers Mr. rieveland lie
cause he would siiliordinale everyihiiig to
a struggle for Free Trad?. Another oppose?.
him because it would siiliordinaro everything
to a struggle for free minage. Some rejoice
in and boldly approve the unscrupulous and
indecent methods of S?nator Hill, caring only
to secure present victory for their party, no
matter by what means. Hut others despise the
man and detest his methods go thoroughly that
they would net vote for him in any case. Yet
wider divergence spring? from the demands of
the runners Alliance, which a host of Demo?
crats are resolved te press at any cost, appar?
ently standing r.ady to desert the party if
those demands are rejected. But to a great
number of Democrats these same demands are
detestable, and they would spurn any candi?
dato committed to such doctrines.
These are not trivial or ephemeral differcnt-os.
They go down to the very root of party action.
A political party has no business to exist at all
if it has n??t some principle and somo purpose
reap??< ting matters so vital to the Nation's wel?
fare SB these. Hut no DeBKM rais can tell now,
nor will any Democrat he able to t? II after
the National Convention has d]f?pe**sed, what
tlie purpose of this patty i? about th????? vital
(jtiestions. He can say that it is f??r Free Tra<l<\
as fsfJBBtOI Mills does, and yet there are Dcim.
crats who fought against Mr. Mills on purpose
to get rid of that issue. No one can laj lhat
Ihe Democratic majority which voted for free
coinage, or tho miiiorily which volxl again?! it.
embodies the purpose of the patti as a whol??.
How many Democrats will drop nut if Alliunn?
doctrines are rejected, how many if ihoso doc?
trines aie not rejected, nobody can tell. This
is not a party, but a mere combinalion of fac?
tions for the purpose of seeming the spoils.
This radical difference between the two
parties will probably bo felt with more die
t;n<Tiie?s as rho enntest advance?. The Re?
publicans cannot nominate any one whose con?
victions on important questions will drive a
portion of the party into antagonism. Hut it
looks as if the Democrats could not nominal??
any one without driving into revolt a portion
of their number. K.von if no OfjMfl and formal
break occurs, there must vet be deep disgust
on the part of those who do not share the con?
victions and purposes of tho candidate, who?
ever he may be. It is not a cheering outlook
for the Democrat*, for indifference and con?
cealed hostility hurt more in many a cloee con?
test than open revolt.
A CROWS ED REP?BLICAS.
The royal decree issued by King Leopold
yesterday dissolving the National Legislature
at Brussels signalizes the inauguration of a new
era in Belgium; and as it will involve a con?
siderable increase of the political prerogatives
of the people, its advent cannot fail to bo wel?
comed with a friendly spirit by our eounti,?.
which i?. so justly hailed by The Old World as
tho cradle of popular sovereignly. The dis?
solution was not unexpected. It was the natural
? .ii)?oi*uenee of the resolutions thai have been
adopted by both houses of Parliament dining
the last three weeks, providing for a revision
of certain articles of ihe Constitution dealing
with the franchise. The terms and the extent
of the revision will In? ?b termine?! l.y the Beit'
Legislature, the elections for which are fixed
to take pia? e on .lune 1 I. This body, which
will have the power-, of a Constituent As?, m
bly, will at once proceed to deal with the articles
of the Constitu? ion submitted for nintliticatiiiii.
Two-thirds of the members of each Chamber
musi be piosent to form a quorum, and no
chango can be adopted except by a two-thirds
vote. As soon as the debates on the subject
of the revision have been brought to a doso
the Constituent Assembly will in its turn be
dissolved, and the ??lei lion? will thereupon take
place in accordance wirb ihe refoi ms of suffrage
That may have been determined.
The mere fat!, however, that the now de?
funct Narional Legislature should have at Ien,-t]i
acknowledged bv an moi whelming vole th,?
n?'(vs.?ity of revising the Constirutjon in a mm.'
liberal and progressive sense may bo rogai ?I? d
as an indicanoli of the collise that is like|v to
be adopted by its successor, thu Constituent
Assembly, now about to be elected. The Na?
tional Charter, as it stands at present, first saw
the light of day in IMI, and provides for a
verv restricted franchise, the tiupayin?? quulif'.
ration hein?,' exti?m?'l> hij-h-so high, indeed,
that with a total population of 0,147,(Mid, the
electorate of Belgium does not exceed 1.14,ono
citizens. The rcniaiuiug 6.000.000 are de
barred from all exercise of political righi?, and
from all vue?? in tho conduci of the National
Ciov eminent, althqpgfa call? d upon t.. pay heavy
taxe? for the support of fh?? latter. Such I
coi '!i'i<??> of affair? ooiild not la?t indefinitely,
and at lenftb th?; niiiiifestaTions of popolar
? discontent became so ? miitoua that the electoral
oligarchy who have since 1S.10 enjoyed the
monopoly of political power in Helgiurn have
been 1?.iced to ? ?-cognize thai the '?"in.ni'l* oi
tho people could n<? long?! be with?tni.d.
It is charai-teristic of the ?'iilightened Prince
who occupies the throne of Belgium that hi?
people shoull have found in him one of the
warmest and mn?t powerful supporters of the
movement for (he extension ol The franchise.
Indeed, ?t ?? Mierted that the pronoaed rxmsti
tutional establishment of a referendum, sim?

hero for dealing with pro!? ?? of constitutional
amendment. ;s entire!,! duo to hi? own initi?

ent condition* of tho politici' atin?>?pliere, he
?????ms ti? hav.? adopted these men.".? of t?i:king
to windward, and alihough himself a sovereign,
presents himself before the world a? tho prin?
cipal champion of the sovereign rights of his
people.
DR. PA REH l'US ? VINDICATED

and in onnso-pieric.? of " th?? ?isti-m inaugu?

wickedly delame?! bj a rookies.? cletRJ man j a
city wbsfB vice and ? rim?, were punued wilh
relentless vigor by the police, and which nee.l
ed no better adinlnistiation. Superintendent
Hyrnes has officially refuted that pretence. Ho
has proved that lawbreakers flourished Undei
his predecessor, and that nothing was needed
to bring theni to a hall but the will to do so.
He does not report, of course, that they pnr.
chased their immunity, but he removes from
tho popular mind the last vestige of doubt on
that point. Superintendent H.v rues has vindi?
cated Dr. Park hurst.
HOW THE TARIFE WORKS.
A full year has passili ?ime the more im?
portant changes of dut? Bnder ih?* new tai iff
went into effect, and the oflieiitl statement for
the month of April presenta in a striking light
the changes which that t.irilf ha? brought
about. In April of last vear heavy Importa?
tions of raw sugar look place, because 'hat wa?
the lirst month in which Rigar was idmitted
free of duty. lOr tvvtlvc month? prior to April
th?* proportion of imports bearin** duly bad
been (>.'? per e<nt and tin* proponi.,? free of
duty :i7 per ?t-iit- Putting risii]?? th?? neep
tiniial movement in April of lest "fear, it ap?
pesii that dining the'twelve montha which
have billowed the proportion of dutiable im?
porte has been Olli" In and the proportion of
imports free of duty f>."i per (cut. Tlie ratio j?
substantially th?? *MBM as for the twelve month?
ending with March, notwithstanding the nn*
ii?ual character of lh?? imp?.it? m April of last
year. Once more the statements of Scnatoi
Carlisle and other leading D.moctats arc refut?
ed by facts, for they afiirmf-d (hat the new
tariff would by no mean? open to free admission
more than half the Importa in vaJue.
In April, lift? the evports wem about
?-..VJOiEnoO 'arger than in the same month of
IStl, mainly because nf the frem? increase in
exports of breadstuff?, hin the impoit? tkia
uu an? about -?f?r.,limi.(iu(l ?mailer than in (he
?am?? monili of 161-1, ami tin? tlilTeniue i?
mainly du?? to the unusual imports of wutMA a
war BgO. Thus it conic? to BjMg that th?? <-v
cess of ini'tort? over e.vjcirts i? only fl76.tif,
whereas in April "f last yegjf it was more than
fid,???,???. For th?r four months of tin
present calendar year the rac4M8 of ?'v-xui? ofSt
impolis has been mom than ??.*.;!.Oiki.ihmi, nnd
for ten months of ihe cunei?.! (?seal year lh??
excess has been iriMMI ?.Mt!..r.*Jl. During tin?
