A Tammany Investigation would bi* a afhrre of the broadest rariety. lt ls to bo hoped that then' will be a large aitomlauco at tho National (biod Hoads Con? vention which is to be held rn Asbury Park next wook.

BROOKLYN'S WATER SUPPLY, Commissioner White's recent letter aboui In* creasing the wafer supply of Brooklyn, alni Chief Engineer Bergen's report, which accompanied it, expressed In derailed and tanglbl ? form one of the most urgent needs of ih.it city; aperbnps, all things considered, its most urgent ned -?. far as public works atc concerned. There was n time when Brooklyn was Justly j.r..ml, b.th of tho quantity and of the quality of Its water supply. Analysis ..howe 1 lt io b,. about il." .purest city water in thc world, sud it flowed In a stroll!.' and ready stream from every faucet lu tho city. Bul tba! time is past. Tor years the supply lias been fslliug in quantity nnd de? teriorating lu quality at an alarming rab*. This has bi cu due partly to ihe rapid growth nt the iiiy and i?onsenueiit Increase of demand, and partly to the shameful misnmnagement and rascality -.t Ring snd Cam.'. It would l>e dlffl I'ult to describe too strongly the present state of ih.- case. Within three yean thc whole city lias suffered a watei- famine, caused by nu <h CUITence which may ba- ri|iiatcd -any day. Within ii few weeks n greal tire lias destroyed s.niie of the tinest buildings In the heart of tho city, tba scantiness of ibe water supply making the firemen helpless to cop.' w tb lt. Except in one small and favored district the whole city complains of lack .,f water pressure, even in buildings of moderate bright; and thc quality of the supply, at do lime comparable with what lt ollCe W'i'.S. ls often so bad as to IWolt th" s. uses of tims:* who are compelled to use lt. The proposals made by Mr. White, baaed uaon Mr. Bergen's careful report, sra sltngi ther moderate, and yet promise conaklerable r.*iiof. The scheme includes new pUniplUg-Stalions, ell ?jriiies and coinluils. and new god larger mains throat- tin- ie art of tho city, lo lins way, it li eatlmatod, thc daily supply can be Increased io the extent of 2&OU0.000 gallons, to lha im? mediate l.cinlii of al] parts of lhe city. Tba cost of doing this is set down as something lesa thau $2,500,U(X?. That ls, of course, a consid? erable sum of money In a city which haa been. THE SUGAR MONOPOLY A\l> ITS DUTIES, After the Income tax. prolmbly the sugar duties will rome up again for n flnol vote. That will air ir. 1 to Sena vis an opportunity which tonic must earnestly desire, to pince beyond all ipi'ration Ihelr altitude to the pending revenue bill, Hy those who hive the i?'.->t opportunity of knowing, it is believed that not one Reptib Hean Senator will be found giving aid and com fort to the enemy, if there cones a chance to defeat lin- bill. Wall Sir,.?! has 1.n thor..nell? ly weil Informed all the time iilmut the sugar purchase, and it is now assured thal Hie Tnisl will consent to some changes In onler to render th" bill b-ss disgraceful to th tao who hare yet to push ir through. The provision .postponing its operation until January oughl to be abol? ished, as som., say lt may be, for it is a thor ougbly dishonest mod" of depriving thc Treas? ury of the revenue ii pretends to secure, When this was exposed by Benator Aldrich some Democrats arc said to have declared thai they would not be hired to vote for ihe ni".,-ure in that shape, but were nppcas?*d with promises As an attack of virtue (an ihe part of a single Democrat might defi-al the bill, perhaps this pi-a.v Islon will !. ? abandoned.

Journals have reproduced, with less shrewdness than Ill-nature, ihe crit? icisms of ihe sugar duty by Thc Tribune when the McKinley act was pending. They are in? structing their readers thal the worst errors of judgmenl which the Republican party ever com mltted, through want of full information, the Democratic party stands ready to ?perpetrate, with Its eyes open and delllxrately, after es p. rlenec has disclosed all the damning facts, provided ir has a chan." ..f gslnlug votes or pocketing cash th"r. by. There will nol be found one Republican today. In tbe llghl "f all thal the sugar monopoly has done, to vote for the : protective duty which The Tribune opposed in lv.Mi. and which, With the additional infamy of the postponement, the Democrats of the Senate have voted for this year. under ling rule saddled with an enormous dcb! ami crushing tax rates. Bul it is an exceeding? ly moderate sum. measured by lhe results to be achieved, .-specially In contrast willi former expenditures npon the water works. Down to the present time th.- works nave i-..*: m..rc than $20,000,000; ami lhe supply is al)..ur 75,000,000 gallons a day. To sitmra an additional supply ..f one-third of that amount, nt an expense ..f (dily one-eighth of rhat sum, will sundy bo a g.1 strike of business. For th" present this plan, if executed, will meet thc city's needs. Put lt is evident lhat In rhe Dot very distant future a far mora elabo? rate and csiiy enterprise inii-i bc undertaken 'iii.* water product of Long Island is limited. Brooklyn bas already drawn upon it io ibo great detriment nt towns, villages and farms for many miles t,. th" eastward. < Hu- of these 'lavs the last available spring will bo tapped, and th" sinking of more wells will be found filide. And still rhe city will I..- growing, alni it> demand for a iter Increasing. It is by no means Improbable thal Si-w-York, t"?'. will have t. look beyond ihe Croton and Bronx basins for its supply. At tiiat time lin* two cities will perhaps bc (die, and as a unit will set about securing watti1 foi' their needs. Whew they will ".-et lt 1- al present ne-re matter a.f ca,a jecture; snd the time when ibis need will be? come ur_eiit ls not yet. It docs s,.*!!!, however, entirely righi ami reasonable for Brooklyn even now i-i begin Investigations, surveys and re? searches, willi a View t" liebig ready ba u.i those inevitable demands, ami for this purpose thc $Ki.'MM askci by Mr. Bergen is certainly not exorbitant. Th'* city government can scarcely do better than to act favorably upon tin* whole piopiisiiloii ni nb-by Mr While, and to lake steps for its Immediate execution. TUT RETURN OF run um i 'RORI ft.

That the .pestilence now raging in China ls Identical with The Plsgue, ur Pink Heath, which in the Middle Ages periodically ravaged Kurope seems to he established beyond doubt. It ls not a pleasant announcement. At the b. st it is serious. .\t the worst, however, lt is nol fora moment panic-Inspiring. Tho grarost feat? ure of the case ls that the epidemic prevails in the third or fourth largest port of tbe world, with which this .md all other civilised countries hav- frequent and direct communication. This iii'ius, of course, that consuls abroad and quar? antine (dillcis at home should redouble their vigilance in the Inspection of every ship that conics not only from Hong Kong, bul from any Chinese, Indian or Hast Indian pain. A hun? dred thousand fugitives have escaped from Can* t"u nnd Hong Kong, and some of them have doubtless carried thc plague with ihem if, however, snch Inspection be thoroughly accom? plished, we need have no fear of an invasion of the scourge. Thc deadly nature of Ihe dtsease ls itself actually au element of safely for places remote fr,,in the seat of contagion. The period of Incubation la so brief, and the cooina "f the disease hu short, thal it ls practically Iraposslble for a patient io bring it here in bia system. The average time from tbe Inception of the dis case to the death of the patient is only three days; the longest .scarcely a week, ono actual ly Hiiffei-inj- from it when .embarking al Hong Kong must, therefore, be detected long before he crosasa the .Paclflc.
