As tlie maximum penalty for Mc?

No one can question Hie Importance of keep ing the attenta of the city clean, ettpeclally now that inidsuiMiier is approaching. By common consent, they an? at present In better condition than ever before at this season, and It would he a great mistake to allow them to become filthy or to be only half cleaned. Whether Com? missioner Waring has Infringed tli?- law In wing up his appropriation to.? fast and creating a pro? pectlve deficiency in the afreet-cleaning account is a question for lawyers and the courts; the thing that concerna the people of the city Is thai tire Gtrr-cts must lie kept In g??oil condition at whatever coat. It is cxperted ihat an issue ?if bond? for the pnrpoaa will l?e atnlioiizisl by the Board of Eatlmate to meet Tin- existing emer? gency.

The Jury, however, ren? dered a verdict exonerating William Henry, and the case remains :.?? mysterious as ever. The a.'?iis??i man is still In custody and bis brother is k ?.it under surveillance. It is itrongly im? pon?.) thai the District-Attorney <li?l not ?present the strongest evidence In liis |iossesston against Ihe pr k ?n? r. The n ?w Ropuhllcan state Club was success? fully orea nixed last evening, and launched upon wbal bids fair to be a prosperous and successful career. M my well-known members of the party were on band, and a splrll of harmony, goodwill and li ?pi fulness animated tbem <'i??' and all. ISo | political enterprise could have gtarted under in.ir.- favorable auspices, It is t.? It?' ;i State Club in reality as well as name, for each Judicial district is lo have a vice-president, and each of ihe sixty counties a representative ?-n the Executive Committee. The Hon. James A. Roberts, ?'f Buffalo, ihe State Controller, was elected president; Ihe list ?if vice-presidents was nol completed, luir this rity la to be represented i.y Edward Mitchell and Brooklyn by Charles A. Moore. Here is a Republican dub organized mi a d? mocratlc basis and deserving "f the sup? port and Rood wishea ?if all true-hearted Repub? licans. LOOK TO THE PBIMABIE8. The leading article which appeared simultane? ously in a considerable number of Republican newspapers in t 11. - Interior of the State last week on th.' Importance ?.f the Senatorial nominations - year, Ix-cause of the fact thai the Senators ?i \x:ii hold over and bave a part In the . lection of Senator Hill's successor, was nol Ill timed, Its slmultaneousnesa occasioned mirth, i>ut its matter ?IM nol provoke criticism, it was ii . doubt prepared by the literary bureau which was so actively employed lost winter furnishing editorial matter t?> the same class of newspapers, which was later compiled In pamphlet form for the instruction of the Legislature. In so far as it directed attention t.? the Importance of nom? Inatlng stanch Republicans who have the ronfl dence of their constituents, and will be sure, if elected, lo vote f"t- a Republican t" succeed David I'.. Hill in th? United Stat.-s ?Senate, it xvas timely and appropriate. Bui if the puniese was, i.y laying tin- gr? itesl stress upon tin- Influence tla- Senators elected Ihli year will have upon the choice ?'f a United States Senator two years hence, lo divert attention from questions ?f more Immediate Inleresl and pressing Importance, it ?. open to objection. There is nol the remotest danger thai tbc Republicans of any Senatorial district will put a candidate In Domination who is nol absolutely certain t.? vote against Mr. U.U. There may be danger of the defeat at the p Ils ??f candidates forced upon Ihe party whose only claim upon Republican support will be based opon th-' aagurance thai they x\-ni vote against Hill, For Ii will be wholesome lo remember that t'.i" cttlaena >.f Ihfc state will '"? thinking at th? next Novemb, r election of something near er at hand, and ?>f more Immediate ?personal con? o.-rn to themselves, than of political contlngi two years "ff. Tii? tlrst thing thai will occur to th? minds of !, i? si Republicans in nominating candidates f? >r the Senate xxill not be whether th?? candidate can be depended upon to vote against Karl?! B. Ulli for United Btstea Senator in I88T thai xxiii go without saying- but whether his record and bis associations Justify the belief thai be is In ac cord with his party on the Important local last?** up"ii which It carried tbc State last yi ar. In the case "f a candidate for renomlnatlon i( will In asked whether in the luvt Legislature be wa* I i cordial sympathy and hearty co rail n ? I th? vast majority who ?l>?ir? 1 the fulfilment ? f the party's pledges In faror of municipal i ?

R< publican primaries an.l bring oui the full attendance which alone is n. ??.????1 to de f?\at unworthy candidates, it will 1?.- beneficial ami wholesome. If, <>n ihe other band, the pur? pose is to raise a ?lust <iv?r the Senatorial eiec ti''ii two yean hence, under cover "f which to renomlnate the discredited and disreputable tools ?.f ?i trading and treacherous I'.'.ss. xxe feel quite sur? H will fail. The strength of the Republican party in the next election lies chiefly In the fact that it ?IM in gome measure redeem Its promises of last year by legislation In behalf of municipal reform. Its weakness lies in the ?possibility lhat the men who were hostile to nil reform, snd who contrived to defeal S''iin* ?if the measures ?I? sired by a Republican Governor, a Republican Mayor of New-York and the great majority of the party, may by their control ?.f party machinery succeed In nominating candidates who will nol be supported by Republican roters. Hierein is ih? great? ?t. almost the ?inly, danger to continued Republican supremacy In tbe state The people w?r.' .a dead earnest lasl year. They ?li.1 not upsei t'roker to pul l'latt in his piar.-, nor ?li'I they suppose thai tbey bad In place <.f a Senate rul?-?l by si.han and Tammany one lhat t.mk orders from a Boss whose alma and methods wer? the sain? as thus,, they had supplanted. It Is their highest duty as citizens and votera to attend th? party primaries and lake care that fit candidates are put In nomination. The <)aii??r of David it Mill's re-election is t.. be averted at the primaries and nominating conventions, If these are neglected, it xxill be useless to at tempt it al the polls. Had nominations may re? sult in a Mill Senate, but they will not secure a Platt Senate. <?f that we may reel assured. Th?- memory of tbe last "ii? is too fresh. e /'///.' CBLBBBATION \T FIEL. To-day's gathering ?.f th? fleets at Kiel is of significance, most ?.f all, t.> Germany, it cele? brates ih? successful completion <>f an engineer? ing work of Incalculable valu? to that Empire, aiik? from a commercial and from a military polnl of view, 'l'h?

L?beck may again rival Iliiinhiir>r. an.l Dsntsig and Streisand snd every ?.th.-r port, ?mt ?nil small, from Rostock to M.-mi-l, will fed the impulse ?rf new faculties. The entire liante Basis, sad pnr li.ailarly the Herm?n shore <>f it, will hsve le-w and vastly augmented Importance in the com nerdal world. la time of war the canal will be of extra?.nlinar.v service. It will, ?if t-ours.'. be exclusively under German cuutrul sud oueu tu gong bul German ahips of wir. it will enable coast-defence fleets lo pars from the North Bea t.? the Baltic within the merest fraction of the time a hostile aquadron would consume in voy? aging round The Bkaw. There is no exaggera? tion In laying it will double the efficient of the German flee! and the aecnrlty of (he German coast. All other nations are likewise Interested in iba celebration, partly for ihe .- tine and partly for oilier reasons Nearly one-third of Ihe traffic through Ihe canal will be lo "?- from British ports. Russian commerce will gain great nd vantage from ihe new highway, and France will aee In it new security for Germany against her powerful Beets In case of war. Nor can any maritime Powi r fall to be Impressed by the apee tacle of the greateal gathering of modern navies the world has s. en. Nol even Greal Brit ,-i a bas had such a naval review as (hie. She could not, without recalling her warships from all parts "f the world. Bui Ihe most striking feature ? if the stupendous array will be ihis fact, that scarcely one of all ibe hundred and sixteen ships has ever been In serious action or tir.-.i a sli.d at an enemy. Not one has ever b ? a mat.-lied against s foe anything like its eqn il. All these floating fortresses have been construct? ed, at a cost <.f hundreds ?if millions, merely In preparation for possible contingencies which never yet have been realized. Indeed, ihey are all, in great measure, untried experimenta No one can tell what would be the result "f a con? flict between tllelli. Would ill'' steel cased battle ships win? Or tlie swift, heavily armed crulsi rs? <?r vet the tiny, scarcely perceptible lorpodo boatsi Engineers are no| agreed. The resull of tin? CblnosJapanese War was not conclusive. So here we are. with all this mighty <-..ll.-.-:i..n of seagoing fighting machines, with utile notion ami im assured knowledge of what they arc worth or bow they would work. To ''n- own countrj tie- occasion is by no means void of especial significance. American commerce may nol at present be much benefit?! by th.- opening of the canal. Bui it Is Imp ? slble t.? resist a feeling of exultation at the knowledge that the American Navy i- worthily represented m ihe greal gathering in Kiel Bay. The ships ?>f aome other I'owi rs ate more numer? ous, and Include aotne ?.f a class wo have not sent thither. Uni of tie lr . I last -. the American ships hav no -11 ] >? i i ?rs und? r any ling.

Ko tar as the Excise Department goes, in.- law agalnal perjury is t., be no longer "off " That is something for which to lie thankful, but it is something which at the same time mil?' - our system of juriaprudence and administr?t Ion .-.. m grotesque. We have apparently not yel reached that stage of civilization where we real Ute thai laws are made t" !"? enforced, \\ ?? have driven from power a corrupt government; we have detected most flagran] crimes which tlour l-ii.si under it, and our heroic aualerlty goes to the length of gnnoundng that bereafter snch crimes may not be oommltted with Impunity. Then when somebody docs tomiuit them we lament the circumstance, t?-ll him not to ?lo s?> again, and send blm Into retlremenl t.? plot the commission of other crimes which he knows ?ill h? likewise Ismented and unpunished. The greatesl Incentive to .Times of all kin.ls, agalnsi persons, property ind government in this city, is the tendency to for??? past wrongs in th.- ii?li?f that reforms will prevent their re? currence. Periods of enforcement an.l abate? ment "f law ai? not compatible with civilised society. 'I'll? way to prevent crime is t.? punish crime, anil to punish it always. Thai is a lesson in th? science of government that we much need to learn. hie nor wir a i/,??>/:v. The liberality of public spirit? .1 citizens enables th? corporators of the New-York Botanic Gar? den to begin at once the execution of thai ad? mirable projeet. The financial depression has prevented a complete fulfilment of the original purpose, which was to secure the sum of $.r>on, 000 by subscription before calling upon the city to provide au equal sum ui!.l?r the terms of the statute. If ih? gentlemen who have had Ihe management of thta undertaking had foreseen the financial calamities of the last two years, they probably would nol have expected lo raise so large a fund, and they might nol have deemed it wise t.. enter upon the task at all under inch conditions. Bui having begun tbe work ihey re i ived not to abandon II because ?f unlooked for difficulties. The prescribed condition <>f a grant , f land and money by the municipality wai a contribution of 1250.000 from privat? sources, Three months ago the corporatora were able to announce thai 92tK?,0OU bad been guaranteed, and they now have the satisfaction of Informing tbe authorities and the community that the full amount baa been subscribed. The city therefore is under obligation to Issue bonds for &T00.000 t.. carry ?.ui the enterprise and t.. pul 'J-'.?? acres ?.f ! land at t'.i? disposal ?.f the corporators. A si'? In lirons Park has ix ?u chosen for the put and Ihe w? rk of construction will soon begin. .mi tbc i.pi?

Professor Ray Lgnkester has given u-?. in some t recent addresses, i most interesting ami Instruc live review Of what has thus f)r been learned about iMcterli and their relation to the health j of man. That that relation is intimate ?s no longer a matter of doubt. Nothing is more cer? tain in medical and biological science than that various diseases are directly caused by the In? troduction of specific bacteria Into ihe human systi ;a and their pernicious activity there. I Am..tic such diseases are anthrax, glandera, te tamis, tuberculosis, '."prosy, diphtheria, typhoid fever. Asiatic cholera and the deadly "relaxing , fever" of the I-: ist. There may. of course, be many diseases not caused by bacteria, and there are many bacteria that are ini injurious, but ? veti beneficent t.. human health as destroyers of noxious r rms. But that many of our woral plagues are Induced by bacteria [g established - beyond cavil. The disease-Inducing bacteria are taken Into the system in various ways, but chiefly in f.I and drink. Water Is perhaps the commonest medium. I' is the especial vehicle for the Intro? duction "f typhoid and cholera germs People having regard for their welfare, therefore, when such plagues are rif". seek tii" purest water ob? tainable. In this. h..wev.-i-. they sometimes err. Professor Linkest er tells us tint such bacteria will live .nul thrive and multiply in th.- purest, even la distilled, water; provided, of course, tint they once get into It. < ?ti tin- other hand, i;' nary river water, nu!.M au?! Impure, tiny quick? ly perish, 'rie? reason of thi- seeming anomaly is simple. The rivei water is swarming with other bacteria which are Innocuous to man, bul which are relentlessly hostile to the cholera and typhoid germs. Tills facl his. the Professor sty-;. in>. m ascertained beyond dispute, an.I i; ??. ems t?. reveal a singularly beautiful and bem i cen? provision of Nature for man's safety, with out which tho lakes and rivers ..f the w 'ill w. uM - di In ome h ipi h ?sly polluted an 1 the ravages of diseases Incomparably more deadly an I . xtenslve than at p-.--.-nt. Tin sc facts lend t.. a eousl !? v.i-' >n ..f the ques? tion of filtering water, if ?1 ?ne properly, such a ?roces?- Is highly valuable. The great Alter beds ofasand use?] by the London water companies transform foul water luto an exceptionally who!.-some supply, 'liny do |h|s nol mechan? ically, by straining tii" water through minute Interstices, but they have what wo might '?? '?'? in iseptic, or < ven a i. ?1 ?glcal, action. The lower lay.-rs of sand lieeouie coated with Jelly? like masses of bacteria thai Is, of the ordinary? putrefactive bacteria. \ purisl nilghl think these fouled the filters, tin ihe contrary, they give tin m their n il efficiency. The water has to I te through these layers of bacteria, and as it doea so the noxl ius bacteria M may have contained are infallibly destroyed. Thia is not the ease m th>- nrdln ivy (1 miestlc filter, ? ?. ' " perhaps, with reference to typhoid germa The hitter may be Intero ?.'?-I and destroyed. Ho t ir -is all others aro concerned, the filter is more apt to till the water with them than t,> rid it of them. Professor Lankester tells us that every itlc Alter In which the same filtering ma? l? roil Is used again and og ilu should be sterilized by boiling every day. if not, within a week it will bee i regular nur?, ry f,.r bacteria, ami it;, r.-is.? their number in the "filtered" water a hundred fold.
