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?

thing that concerna the people of the city Is thai

One new fact of Importance was laid before

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

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

Roberts, ?'f Buffalo, ihe State Controller, was

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 ? I
or \x is in league xx'lth those x\h.. openly npp -1
or secretly Intrigued against ref??rm mea*
And if the candidate be a new man, with no
official record, no less rigid scrutin* xxill lie ni ule
int.? li!? associations and affiliation? i" make sure
against a repetition of the expertem.f last
year, wto n, after an overwhelming victory for
Reform over Bosses aii?i Bosslsin In both par?
ties, the honest Republican masses awoke when
it was t...? late t?. tii? fac? that a Senate nominal?
ly Republican wai under the control ?f a Boss
who busied himself day and night contriving
schemes to defeal the ref ?rms t ? xx hich his party
waa publicly pledged.
if tti? effect "f this simultaneous publication
of the literary bureau editorial Is to awaken in?
t. .-.si in ;li? 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.
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?

great highways of the ?vorld's commerce. The
shipping passing through it yearly xxill amount
to many mllUonsof tons. All of thai will traverse

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

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

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

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

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?>

The greatesl Incentive to .Times of all kin.ls,

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.

.Ml this is s.? un? m.I so ?.in ?..us thai Ihe plain?
est of ih? plain people see it ns clearly as the
m..si scientific economist. Their dally experi?
ence teaches th? m that shops close when custom?

sumers i!" not buy at current prices any more
than il??? v ran help, when p..\x?r is transferred
t.? th.,?e who have promised to lower prices i.v a
third or one-half. It waa no mystery In the
early spring of im? that orders were wonderfully
curtailed for almost every kind ?.f goods lhat
could h- Imported, Ix-cause the piny t., which
power had i.???? transferred had been promising
lower prices for "everything from the cradle t..
Ihe grave," an.l ha.I actually believed Us own
promises and predictions. About half th.? people,
at all events, were thus prepared to acl upon the
filth thai the Democratic party would make
everything cheaper by rhanging the tariff, it
was as plain as th? noa.i a man's face that
li? ili'l not want lo give large orders for goods
ai high prices, when the ?.Is could not be made
for months, an.l might then be bought at low
Kxactly ihe reverse feeling has brought revival
of business. Faith thai danger was past, thai
Democratic warfare against Industries had i.n
stopped, that im change? were to i?. anule for th?>
future exeepl for their defence, brought its per
fectly legitimate an.l natural consequence be
iut that u.g?reme ,,r Democratic prostration
could n..t continue, thai business must Improve,
ind that pri?es must necessarily ru?. to s.
extent in that belief everybody was disposed
to place orden for future delivery, an.l t.. prom?

Operation, it is ail m ?, nutshell; the business

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.
