Thene i-asualtlM furnlBh another argument In favor of the reforms pro? posed by the Tenement-House Committee, whose report and reeommendatlons have not yel re reived from the Leglalature Ihe consideration to which they are entitled. The presenl laws. bowevtr, require Ihe erection of Hry-escapes on tenement-houses, and the owner <>f the building in Wist Twenty lifth-st. ought to be brought to book for liis neglect. Morally, if not legally, he is responsible f"r the death of two men. Constructively al least this ?s manslaughter, though the courta might be unwilling to call H by m harsh i name. The people of the state will take satisfaction in the renppolntmeut by Governor Morton of I?:-, ?'.irlos v. HacDonak] as a state Commls si"i)cr in Lunacy, which was eonflrmed yeater day by tin? Senate. Dr. fcfacDonald lias held his uttlce since 1880, ami his present appoint ment is for six years mote. He lias performed his diitlis acceptably, and shown himself to be tile tiv'ht man In the right place. I?r. MacDoii al.l is an alienist of high standing, and the State is fortunate in securing Ids services for another term, more especially because the responsibili? ties of the Commission have been Increased by the State Can? act. und will be still further en Urged when the insane of New York and Klngfl counties are turned over to the State authori? ties. A retisus of the city is booh to be taken by the police, primarily for the benefit of the Health Department, whose statistics have hitherto been to ? considerable extent the re? sult of gnessw .rk. The desirability of an accu? rate basis for detcrmiui?g the city's death rate and other Important matten ?s s< ifevident. ???!?? dally aa it ran bo obtained through the police for a ?mall outlay.

This action supplements in ih< right way the drastic find? ing? of an exceptionally competent ?'< roner'a Jury. 1' oughi to lie followed by a vigorous prosecution of the Indicted men. There seems to be ii" probability that they can shlfl or evade Hi" i-i -|i"iisiiiiliiy renting upon them.

BOW TO SERVE THE PARTY. The "il- hope of the Dem?crata In ihis State, Huir leader? now admit, is that mlacondncl of Ibe Republican legislature may nun many thousand \"t?s agalnai the Republican party, rnquestlouahly the aervih1 aubjectlon of many Republican legislator* to n machine dictation whiclt Is bostile to every mesure "f genuine [???form baa n powerful tendency to arouse In? tense aud Indignan) opposition. But it i* not to I." forgotten that ih" only advocates of r? form In the legislature are also Republicans. Tb? whole body of Democratic members trotes and works persistently for whatever policy will prolong corruption, machine rule and fraudulent clcctlou? in ih.- cities, (iovernor Morton is :i Republican, and la not on the sid" of corrup Hon. Mayor Strong I* an earnest Republican, , and is ?it ih-- bead of the reform movement In this city. A large proportion of the active workers for reform here aud throughout the Ktate are of the sanie party, With what reason could any good citizen, who sincerely desired [letter government, vote to pul back the power Into the bauds of the party which has organised corraptiou and fraud, and stin fights desperat? ly to prevent every reform"i I'h" struggle is between Republicans who want their party to succeed by serving the peo pie faithfully and those who want it to succeed by m.ans of- spolia and for the sake of spoils j When Ihe plain i.pie exime to understand the ! issue, there can be Do doubt that they will dr sin- um*! earnestly to uphold the Republican Governor and Mayor and other leaders who demand genuine service of the people I'nless they go daft, ihey will not want to restore Hill ism and .Maynardi-m. Sheehau aud Murphy. Tammany and the Brooklyn Ring, to the mas tery in the State or In any city Votera who want better government, and they are many, will make their tight to d?fi M Hie nomination of legislators who resist It, in drive tbetn ??ut of public service, and to select In place of them men who do not believe that a party should Ik a conspiracy for plunder. In ihis state of facts It i* plain that Ihe be*t service any man can tvuder the Republican party is to strengthen the hands of those who are struggling In the leglsUttnre for a genuine and thorough reform. The worst thing any man can do for the Republican party i- to help thosa who fight against the overthrow of Tammany methods and rim: rule. Here, as always, he serves his party 1 ?? ??t who serves hi* country b< st, and every good blow struck for the emanci pation of ih" people of this city and State from degrading and corrupting bondage to political machinery and machinists is a help to tl.nly party through which tin re la a hope o? attaining that blessing. Tim Republicans who get In the way. and |s*r sisl in seeking Ihelr priva'" interests Instead of the Interests of Ihe |ieople, will lind oui In 11 me that their couduct and methods make them ?ni:.,us to sincere Republicans throughout the country. With Republicans elsewhere they will bave no consideration, bi'causc they are doing what Ihey can to make Hie party distrusted by the vast body of voters in other States who want better government. Just a* Tammany i' ! self became such a stench In Ihe nostrils that Its opposition to a man helped his nomination for the Preskleney, so ?t is possible that the machine politicians in this State may discover thai they can helo no Republican candidate for ih" Preskl? ocy ? xcept by opposing him. a* tin ir Influet.lepends wholly upon ihe spoils which Ihelr supporters hope they may I?" aid" to distribute, their power within the party In this i State will vanish also, when ii is found thai i neither a Republican Mayor, nor a Republican (Iovernor, nor a Republican President, will dare to gire them consideration as true repre? sentatives of Republican interests. SOME DIPLOMATIC BYPLAY, The Spanish Government ha* complained of Ihe official conduct of tin- American (Consul-Gen eral in Havana, and threatened hi demand bis recall. The Spanish Minister In Washington ha* been most Indiscreet and undiplomatic In Ins recent utter anees, and Secretary Gresham is currently reported to lie bent upon securing his dismissal. Then there is Minister Thurston, who has been a thorn in the side of Secretary Gresham; and Ihe Hawaiian Government has been asked to recall him. But not to be out [ manoeuvred at any turn by the state Depart ? ment, President Dob? may follow up th;* de ! maud with a similar request for ibe retirement of Minister Willi*. If be does this, he will nave , the best of Ibe argument, as has boon his good 1 fortune from Ihe beginning of ihe Hawaiian <.troversy. Minister Thurston may have been indiscreet and loquacious in Washington, bul In has never gone to the White House and de manded President Cleveland's resignation and ejectment. That i* what Minister Willis ha* done in Honolulu. A* "persona non grata" be may be said, in the lauguage of Ihe vulgar, "to hold over" every other diplomatist. |q Christen? dom. These hits of diplomatic byplay may be com pared to an even exchange of pieces in the game of ?Ins*. No advantage Is derived by either side from play of this kind, hut tin board is cleared of aggressive pieces and the game goes on. Tin- demand which O rea I Britain is ! making upon Nicaragua for a financial indem. I nity for Ihe Indignities offered to its represent I ative at Bbaeflekla is of a different character. i Then are various controversial matters in thi* case. Mr. Hatch has been charged with had ership in the Intrigues among the Mosquito peo? ple, and it has also been alleged that his e\., quatw had been withdrawn, and that he was mu a duly r.ignlaed representative of Great Britain, All the details of Ihe ?ase are not known, bal we venture to forecast prompt acquiescence on Ihe pan of Nicaragua la the payment of the bill of damages. It can afford to do this, for It has secured complete control I over a valuable seaboard. Separation to the extent of $7...<*n? will be cheap, when the value of Its new territory H taken into accoont. VEMZll-LA ?ND 9MBAT BBiTAtS. The controversy ..ver tl.wnershlp of the i'liyuiii V'alh-y has been complicated with many elaborate phrase* ami outiaudi*h geographical names So far as Ihe essential farta arc eon ? cerned, bowever, nobody needs to be for a single ; moment in doubt. The case is perfectly simple. Venezuela owns the land. Great Britain covet* It and 1* trying lo grab H by guile If she can, by force if she mu*t. I* sin- to sue-.IV Tint j i* ihe wind.. Venezuelan question. And It Is a question in which not only Venezuela but .?very American *. t :. ? 11. ?oiiih and north, is I deeply Interested. The territories .>n the northern roast of s..uiii America formerly belonged lo Spain and Ho] land. The dividing line between the two Towers was the Bssequlbo River, all cast of II belonging io Holland and all west of it to Spain. The i.i.iaiv was not tixfd by written treaty, bat was tacitly accepted by both parties, and re malned unchallenged by either for nearly two hundred y.ars Countless historical fads of record and diplomatic reference* establish i;. in right, beyond all question. In 1810 a large territory Immediately west of the river revolt? ed, became Independent of Spain, and formed tli" Republic or Venexuel.1. I' Inherited all the right* and privilege* and territorial owner? ship Spain had formerly enjoyed there. It owned, that is to *av. all the land on Ibe wes| bank of ih" Kssequlb '. s utbward lo the Brn xlllan frontier Pour y.ars later, in IS14, Hoi ; land ceded lo Great Britain .nsWerable por lion of ln-r territory. i<> wit, that |Kirtlon lying on the east bank of Ihe Esaoqulho and extend ?ul: eastward lo ihe Corentln Rlv? r, since known a* British Guiana. In tin* transaction t;nn Britain ncqnlred all Ihe ti--li-*.. privilege* and territorial ownership Holland had enjoyed, but n.? more. Tin- Kssequlho River remained Ihe rightful dividing line between Veuezu?ia and British Guiana And this fact was substantially acknowledged by Great Britain toi- sixty years. Observlug, however, that tin- entire lioundary w.i* m.? m.itbematlcally .i?-s.-riti. d in a written treaty. Great Britain early hegau to make vari ous attempts to seize Venezuelan territory. Down 'o IS40 she reaeheil out no further than ih" I'omnron River, a small sttvani a few miles West of ih" K**. quibo. This a.ham.- l-ivo In r but liiil" more land, but It gave In r entire con Irol of th" Kssequlho and of the mouth of its chief affluent, the Cnyunl. In lspi. however, she suddenly claimed < \ erytblng clear up to the gri il Orinoco River.

There is substantial agreement on ihe pan <>f all interested that tl.are of Ihe Indigent In sin,, of Kings ?oiinty sbotlkl without further delay be turned ov?r to the State, under ihe State Care law; aid a bill ha* been tat nsluccd providing for the sale t.. the Sut" of the county I farm at St. .lohnland. or King'* Park, I. I . and tin- pinal of the asylum buildings at Putbush for i lernt* of years. The main point at Issue, hut ti"t ih?- one winch will attract mosi atten? tion al present, i* thai under Ihe auspices of the state the Insane poor of Brooklyn will re (vive proper and adequate treatment. This has not i.e.ii ib., case hitherto, even wlien tin- Chari lies administration ha* been In the hands of Commissioners above suspicion. There bas been scandalous overcrowding, and the physical condition of the buildings baa been such as to subject the patients especially in severe weather, lo rruel suffering. Every ronsMcra Hon of humanity and good management favor* the placing of this Important matter in the hands of experienced State officials, who will s> .? lo it tli.it these helpjeSM people are card for humanely and wisely. There I* absolutely no argument on the other sale, and DO obstacle whatever la likely to be put in the way of Ihe passage of Ihe bill so far as (hi* feature is con cerned. Bat tinie ?s another question in which the taxpayers of Kim.-* County cannot help taking 1 a de.p interest. This involve* the price placed up.ii th.mty farm property. The sum named in the bill I* S.'.imi.oimi. which is less than one-twelfth of ihe total amount spent upon the St. .1 .l> ?lind enterprise. When the farm w.i* projected It was supposed thai the solution ,,f tin- problem .,f dealing with tin- losane In Brooklyn had been reached. It* establishment was hailed as tin- dawn of a new era, which would be free front tin- abuses and scandal* thai had covered t|?. Tlatbusli Asylum with In fumy. Instead, scandal and Jobbery flourished at St. .b.hnland a* never before, and the record I mad.- by rlngatera ami corrupt contractors would bave done no discredit t.. the Tweed Hing j or Tammanj Hall under th.- Croker r?gime. j More than M.000,000 has been sunk in the I county farm; sunk for the most part us abso lately as if the earth had opened and swallowed it up, lu comparison with this the $900,000 offered scms a paltry sum. bul even that is Soii.immi more than Controller Roberts thought the State OUghl t,. pay. Th" Kins;s County < 'iiiiiies Commissioners were will:",' to accept soim.ixMi. : i ti. i uiii probably nol demur now at S",iiii.ihhi. w/e do n't hesitate t.. say that Kings County thnuld gel this white elephant off its hands at any terms that it .an make. The name St. .lohnlaii'l h?S l""ii dropped, the railroad station DoW bring known as King's Park, and th'1 soon? er 'lie thing for which ii stands Is made non* existent as a county Institution ihe better it will is?. si. Johnland has been a sink of Inbmlty. Whether the full truth regarding it will ever I?- to!.I is extremely doubtful. The money lavished upon i' has evaporated to the amount of nearly W.000,000, with visible re ?nil- thai are pitifully meagre, and the tax? payers may count themselves lucky if they are freed from the necessity of spending an addi? tional rent upon It, even ?f they do have to gel rid of ii at a tremendous sacrifice. The bill in trodu.I by Assemblyman Friday ought to b> passed promptly. " TIMID."

The Hon. William C. Whitney was in Naples when the Alliati'.-.i outrage was committed, but he responded promptly When asked for his opin? ion of an unprovoked assault upon an American merchantman. The .able dispatch which li? sent to ? riie New-York TltneS" was as vigorous a bit of writing as we have seen for many days. We have no criticism to pas? upon it, but desire t.. express our bearty approval of its uncompro? mising tone; yet W" cannot refrain from ex? pressing surprise that Mr. Whitney should have broken a prolonged silence so unexpectedly. What be has to say about the wilful insult to the American flog and people, tin- most wanton outrage offered "to any first-ctaaa Power in , fifty years," and the "general brutality and rafflnnlsra that holds Cuba." is w.-ll Mid; but mor.- significant that anything else ?s the fact ] that In- ?s taking the trouble to make his views known. Mr. Whitney describes Spanish rule in Cuba as -a r.l:c of th" Middle Ages," and dedar * that "it makes his blood boil." What does a message of this kind meaol Coming, as ?t do"*, all the way from Naples, and from a statesman who has been in retirement sit.the r. election >.f Mr Cleveland, i: is evidently more importan: than the outspoken utterances of Sen? ator Morgan or Senator Prye in a similar vein. It indicates Mr. Whitney's ?loir.? r.i have the . <?? an try understand that if in- were to 1?" elected Presiden! in- would !?? I?? good an American t,. allow- tin- Bag |,, i?. nreil npon with Im- ', punlty, .uni al*., ih.it he would favor aggressive action against Spain in ihe West Indies. Por two year* there ha* been Democratic diplomacy of iii,. m,.st pusillanimous kind, with tin- policy of infamy in Hawaii as the CTOWOlng achieve men I -?!' Incompetence and folly. Mr. Whitney has never found leisure, even when In-lias ben ;.t borne, for commenting upon this extra ?rdl nary record. Hut suddenly, when he is a long way ..ff in the Mediterranean, lu- answers a .able .all and lets the country know that his blood bods over the Alliatn.a affair and the . m dltlou of Cuba. We may he wren.', for Mr Whitney is ? deep and w ii\ mm. whose poiltlcul designs are in * mi ''?!?; but it *<?? ms to us that h< has adopted an ingenious method of intimating to Ihe coun try thi' he ha* Dot been in sympathy with the diplomacy' '?' lb1 lleveland A.lmin;strat;.'i. He * i\ *. to !.?? sun . at til" close of the dis| tha' ??the Prcsld nt la generally a safe person t> follow"; luit that cau hardly be construed as an expression of hearty approval. Th.- de? vout Cleveland worshipper i* expected to say that the President Is always infallibly right; and tti.it I* a very different phrase fron "gen? ii safe person." The whole tenor of the d -?..? li. -le fiery energy "f the styl", tin- pas? te Indignation over an Insult : ? th" nag, i d 'in Immoderate denunciation of Spanish misrule, ludiente a verj serious purpose on the paii of Mr. Whittle-,. Between the lines, In OUT |il?lgnn lit, may be read hi* desire to I, t Ameri - ..now t'ait he *taiids for a markedly differ? ent orl.r .f diplomacy from that of the Clev ? 1 il Administration. Tin- Naples message may be th" first bull"-,a ,,f a ['residential canvass. Por mir own part, we have never ceased to r?-ganl Mr. Whitney's refusa? to enter President Cleveland's seoinil Cabinet as a National mis fortuuc if he had been in Secretary Uresbam's pi i?

Hi* seU >ii in aendlng marines t.- tli.. Isthmus when he hid 1.u in the Navy Dcpartmeul only a few weeks disclosed ?he true Instinct of Vmerlcan feeling. We can well un? derstand hi* patriotic Indignation over tin- .\1 liam.i affair; and We have DO manner ..f doubt to.,- 'his blood has been boiling" at every stage .f (tresham Incompetence until a right stand unexpectedly taken in tin- Spanish negotiations ? ?iiabb d him to break silence.

Inasmuch as Qovtruor Altgeld, of lllln >K his Indorsed Attorney-General Ulney'a refusal to au? thorize the ua? of Federal troops lr quelling tha wharf riots In ffew-Orieana, it is time for Mr. i?l ney carefully to review his-action and see whether It might not have been a mistaken one, after all. As a general rule, the F?lerai officer whose acts n elve Altgeld's approval la tolerably safe in as? suming that h.- has done the wrong thing. Spain has a ion? historic background and be. hind that a traditionary era of unknown extent, but It has been for some generations an inert na tlonallty, retaining Just - nough vitality to keep u from dismemberment and dissolution. Of alt its great transatlantic possessions, s?, meretlotaiy won and ruled and so rapaclousl) despotted, Cuba and Porto Rico are about all that remain In Its pos? session, hihI it Is not surprising that it does all It can to hold fast to them They turn In a good Share of Its revenues and their official places af? ford almost the only profitable sinecures for Im noveriahed Dona and Hidalgos of which it now has th.- distribution. It has made Its rule in the islands li.tolerable, and there Is no chance of Us holding them in permanent subjection, it is only a question "f time whan their independence win 1... established and power R-lven them to deter? mine their own future. They ate as much enti? tled to this as the American Colonies were in their revolt from Brlttah rule, in fact, the latter never ' bad any auch MUsg injuries and cruelties to impel them to Insurrection. Spain Is infuriate when? ever anything threatens to loosen her grasp of UN Wands roady to break into domestic disor? der and riot, overturn ministries or perhaps tear In pieces the whole fabric of her government; but these pre not signs of strength and will not for? ever preserve hoT oppressed and outraged trans? atlantic, possessions. She has already h. id th?ra UM long. That Is the decided opinion of her sub Je,?t Islanders, In which all the rest of the world except herself heartily concurs.
