THE I'KLSIDKNTIAL TERM.

ri.l'.IHlUTY T<? Ittl-EIJ'.iTH'N.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: Your e?litor!al of this date on Ths Better ? hit
look" presents to me, rc-i'ling between the lines, ar
ajumenta In ninfliiaallon ol views held for many
years as to the benefits to the country from a ten
gear laTSSldSatial BSCUSsbesiejr, I was a third-termer
when V. 8, (?rant was In olTlce. and worke i for him,
in my limit-1 way. believing then, as I do now,
that constir.it! mal safeguards in Anv-rlca at least,
are ??ufflclent for our liberties, whether political, re?
ligious or social.
My Dullness SipertSUaS goes back as a clerk to
IITA, and from IW as s merchant, when 1 saw
the Injury ?,, business refultlng from the ejuadren
nlal election for the Presidency, In tbOSC 'lays, anl
befor?) the railway systems were so extended, the
business Of the country was done In s.-asons. s >
call? 1. The S.iuthcrners purekssed their supplies
and had them ?shipped to various oast peints, BO
as to be rea?ly for the tsro annual rises In the
rivers, enabling the transports tloa to far Interior
points. The Westerners were controlled by the
clislng of ,he Erie Canal, and bought for Its closing
and op'-niig date. Railways, srifh their diurnal
facilities, and the d??v??l ?pm ?nt of large interior
bases of supply have changed all that. This has
proven SdTSnlSgSOUl In many ways. especlsUy In
spreaJIng the maturity of credits through the year,
instead of centralizing them in October and No?
vember, as was the case then, with the ntten?lant
anxieties which old merchants ro well remember.
The evil resulting from qusdreonisl election peri?
ods remains. Under Its operation there are two dis?
turbing causes to the welfare of all business. The
first Is the political agitation in the year proceding
a National election; this is ever a disturbing, harm?
ful factor In business, a statement which every
business man in the country will confirm. And this
disturbance continues through the year following
an installation. Thus we have but three years of
that peace which Is essential to prosecution of
business enterprise. Were the Presidential term
extenied to a period of ten years, coinciding, if
you ploase, with the ceuaui per! ?d. and the Incumbent
thereafter Ineligible to office, by statute, the period
of business quietude would be extended correspond?
ingly and with happiest results to all enterprises.
Tty an unwritten law the term of four years can
be, and often has been, extended to eight years
of office. Tradition alone limits it to eight; it may
be more if the people will it to be.
If, therefore, a man cannot imperil the Nation
In eight years, he cannot do much in that direction
In two years more, and with statutory limitations
as to terms of office as Indicated, the ambition of
an Alclbiadcs would be controlled, and no man can
leave a legacy of ambition for a successor. Ambi?
tion is a selfish trait, unshared by Its possessor in
behalf of another.
The term of service? in the legislative branches
should remain unchanged Their elections nre

bearing securities?, test the value of tariff policies,
expose thetr errors, and In general result in such
positive public welfare as would convince all of its

terests would remain as now; differences then, at
now, would exist, arii! then?? would And expression as
now in legislation within the laws. subject to Ex

Democratic or Republican, whlchev-r the rule in
the Executive, would be controlled by tue Coiifdl
tutlon and the laws thereunder; no personal am?
bition could affect liberty, and with the telegraph,
the press, with its watchful eye on personal um
bltloii?, and untrammelled schools of thought, that
ceaseless vigilance which all of these agenu?tes ?.x
enMs?* In defence of liberty would pi-ov? a safe?
guard which no Caesar could trample down.
The ability of the people to overthrow any ?lynis
tlc or oligarchic rule has been sufficiently nroven
In this State by the deposition of Tammany anl its
associated wlr.gs;, as on a wider Held ha.s been shown
by the relegating to that outer darkness and the so?
ciety of the five foolish virgins that party In Con?
gress which, Intrusted with high powers by too
credulous voters, proved false to promises and
trust, and have their reward. And with the gTowth
of the sentiment so rapidly permeating the Repub?
lican party?lis natural exponent??>f America for
Americans, there Is little reason to fear that any
political party, whether on or off a religious foun?
dation, can Imperil American liberties under an Ex?
ecutive decennial tenure of office.

GOI.T) TH*. INTERNATIONAL TTNINC-EORK.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: A few evenings ago, conversing with a promi?
nent musician, we drifted .nto general talk regard?
ing the tunlnc of various BBUBBCal instruments. From
h.m I learne?! that the American piano-makers had
been competing with one another for a number of
pssrs, hoping to aid to the brilliancy of tone of
their respective well-advertised instrument*, es?
pecially to attract the attention of the amateur
country pianist. The pitch was gradually raised from
one-eighth to three-eighths of a tone. DisSStlOUa re?
sults of keying up pianos an 1 Btrtaged Instruments
In this manner were brought about in a number of
?ways?for Instance, fhe Impairment of the deli?
cate organs of singers. Al! Imported instruments of
wood and brass ot European manufacture were
tuned to the lower pitch. When competent musicians,
using wood and brass instruments, attempted to
play In concert with American-tuned pianos the dis?
cords produced can easily be Imagined.
To remedy all of this Inharmonious business, two
or three years aero the leading musicians from dif?
ferent parts of the world agreed to meet and over?
come the difficult!.s Indicated atore. At a conven?
tion held in a foreiirn city they finally entere?! Int >
an agreement to adopt an international tuning-fork.
At the same time they agTeed that piano-mak?rs of
America and Europe should tune their Instruments
upon the familiar basic tone herein referre i -,
The happy results of this arrangement can BOW be
fully appreciate?! and understood by those who have
sensitive ears.
While my musical mentor explained the above
mentioned matter it occur?-?*! to my mind that
herein Mes the germ of the financial principle which
when properly enunciated, emphasised an?l explalne!
ought to set sensible men to 1 Wiking in a natural
way of the International standard ?.f values. Must
not the financial, the industrial and the commercial
; pie in the civilized portions of the glob.- be
compelled eventually to do exactly what the mus?
clans have done? If the limited number encaged
1n playing upon merely human emotions have found
It necessary to make a compact intended to avoid
Inharmonious expri-ssions how much more neces?
sary is it for all the people of all climes and con?
ditions c> aljus: values now creating distractions.
?inci-rtalmW'H and discor-is In the distribution of
products.?
Is not the international tunlnc-fork the perfectly
clear and sound illustration of the financial principle
suggested'.' Does nut gold represent the financial
tuning-fork? JOSEPH SAMPSON

IMPORTANCE OF THE COTTON QUESTION.
To the Editor of The Tribute.
Sir: While it Is very gratifying to us to know you
have found so frequently of late that wo have put
Into our daily market litters, matters of sufficient
Interest to Induce the publication ?>f them In a Jour?
nal as prominent and Influential as The New-York
Tribune, we also bog to express our pleasure that
you have taken up a subject that really Should re?
ceive more attention from the lo?al press than it
has ever received, except spasmodically. We say
this, not from s?l/1ah interest alone, but because we
raally believe that so leading a commodity as cot?
ton, with its imi">rtance, In ways other than purely
commercial, should be treated on as broad a basis
as it is entitled to. speculatively and otherwise.
ATWOOD VIOLKTT & CO.

To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: Your able and vigorous denunciations of
"Roys" Platt and hi? methods are much appreciated
by your many readers In this vicinity. AlthoiiRh
this Senatorial district has been considered a Platt
stronghold, there are many Anti-Platt Republi?
cans h< re, and their number has been mat.rlally
Increased since The Tribune has shown up the Piatt
Tarnmany alliance In New-York City. The inflll
gent Republican voters of this city an not In love
with Tammany Republicans, and fir this reason op?
posed the lenomtnatloii and election of Senator
O'Connor. They were dissatisfied with hi? Sht-ehan
and Tammany record, but. as the powerful Platt
machine was behind him. be was renominstad and
elected. Notwithstanding the fact that Senator
O'Connor had tbe support ?if the Tammany element
In this city, he ran far behind his ticket, being
snowed under in his own voting- precinct, which is
overwhelmingly K> publican. If The Tribune Till

ment and clean politics. It will insure an Anti-Platt

To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: flans for rapid transit In New-York should,
it seems to me, take into account the -oming
Orsster New-York, an.i k, ? p in view the extension
of the system under the East River Into (<ong inl?
and. Of course, at this presen* time, the Commis?

In fact and to be one In the fullest sens.?, ?vith all
the ad vantages accruing, musl ha??? such tnt?r
commiinieat on as wou'd result from extending the
proposed Manhattan underground road into Brook?
lyn and Its suburbs.
The extending of this system Into Brooklyn and
carving a spur of It as a surfa? .? road ti Coney
Island or sunn near shore point would, I believe,
greatly increase the earnings of the Manhattan
Island portion, a? well a? prove profitable within
its own limits. The current of travel through the
rlv, r funnel would be ln,'rea?.-i. in ?sinter II ? ?Id
especially profit by the uncertainties discomfort
an?! tedlousness of ferry and bride;? travel, and In
summer by the much spec Her und cooler run 11
an-i from the spasM? f?,r th? Manhattan population,
Let the Commission now so depress their (?rade
from the ('Ity Hal! southward as to mak
to continue the tunnel on 'jr.?>r 'he r!\cr. and then
when the time Is ripe all the above great ext
can be made.
Allow me to ?ay that the tunnel th?n ?h.mld pass
under f^overnor's Islan?l and connect with it; in
which case that little island S*OU*d become more val?
uable yet as a military barracks or even ,,f gr it? -

p?. te?l, anl the congregation will return to Its
former quiet methods In the od church building,
while Mr Dixon will try t-.establish a near Church,
or rather religious organisation, after idea? o? his
own. When Mr Dlxon was called from Host ?n by
the Twenty-third Street Baptist Church, services
were then being held In the church building at
i exlngton-ave, an?l Twenty-thlrd-st., and it was
I ?und ample to accommodate ail comers, ah this
was ? hanged upon 'he appear.tn?-?? of Mr. Dixon.

developed year by year, csuaad xreat uasaslnsss
amoni the older ai 1 more conservative of the

OPPOSED To A RETURN.
The latter have for some time been discussing

building, and as Mr. liixon has repeate.lly said that
i ?? wou l noi agree '? such a move, any action of
the kind on ths part of the trustees or members
would be tantamount to asking for Mr. l>ix?m's.

It Is said that the hoard, who ar<> all of one mind

things which bave become t?> me of supreme lm

snd the individual church; <-> presan ting old
