No positive Informa lion gg to their safety has been received, but the nega tiTe Intelligence contained In the dispatches seni from Fort Washakie is encouraging. The latest letters from members of the party are ilat?>?l July 18, and show that they were fully Informed of the Indian uprising and were prevented ther? by from taking the customary route to the Yel lowstone Park. The only other trail is a littlc trarelled one, and it is not surprising that n<?th ing hag been heard of the travellers mire they got out on It. Appsrently they have been wholly out of harm's way so far as th?? Bannock Indians are concerned. The arrests for violation of the Excise law ?on Sunday numbered 180, as against 188 the previous week; which may be taken as a fBBgB of the iBcnpasing diligence of the police in en? forcing the law under the new regime, as w?ll an of the extreme caution displayed by th?ise saloonkeepers who ventured to defy It.

THE TRUE QUESTION ABOUT MONEY. Joint debate is n??t always the best means <?f bringing out ihe truth. The disputant who has ! the worst of the case on its in?Tits always has many opportunities of fixing up fictitious issu?-. I and wasting time over points <>n which he can appeal to prejudice and ignorance, ai Mr. Har? vey is doing at ?Chicago, Th?? main ??.sue In the ?monetary battle, ?s The Tribune sees if. i* not whether Boms error wai ma?l?- in ihe past, or smne proper thing *!?>ne in a mistaken way. hut Whether after the lapse of iw??nty-rwo years Ihe mints can he safely and with benefit opened to the ffc?' coinage "f silver, .as they were ?before 1ST??. And the question of questions is whether the changes of n quarter <>f a century in mone? tary ?'??mutions and methods have made free coinage useless, dangerous, unjust ami wicked. It is only just to Mr. Edward Atkinson to quote a note from him explaining that his riewfl have been misunderstood, and that he thinks the quantity of money Influences prl<*es only In very long periods, while as t?> any more speedy ? effect of a chance in quantity, his views are ? th.?se of The Trihune. It Is n??'. however, s<? I much a questloa of time. The Trihune ihinks. .is of conditions and methods. If the chances ?if the la?t twenty-two yean bad been spread orer ?ereral centuries, or by some miracle had been com]?ress,?d within a single year, they would still settle ihe question of free coinage and the quan? ti ta tire ttmory of ni'iney as completely as they do now. No one will dOUbt that the world 1ms gained ?Incalculably by the rerolution in monetary meth oils whicli has coin?' to pass in a ?quarter "f a century. Th.- Clearing Uons.- makes it easier ami infinitely safer to cnmplcte settlements of SlOO.fiOO.OM) with tllXOMMMO In money than It was a quarter of a century ago to complete those setii.-ineiits with *"iiM?.i?Mi,(HKi in money. The tel?.j-raph, extending ev.'iywhere and placing the money of the whole world at any point where ir is needed; the rapid communication by railroads ami Steamships; lie* multiplication ?>f banki ami depositors ami the se?era] ose ??f cheeks; t tu* i tremendous fall in ibe cost of producing the precious metals, and especially silver, have com? pletely changed the world bs respects the needs for money, the quantity required for safely in transactions of nn equal amount, the possibility of using two kinds of coin concurrently without loss, and the peril <?f using any money that does not measure exactly as the money of the commer? cial world measures values. These changes, here only faintly outlined, have Bimply annihilated tl?<* theory that any given quantity of money is necessary to support in ,s.af?.;y cr?dite and ?transactions ?>f n certain amount. There has been rabStJtUted the m.ist.-r fad that commerce makes all the curri-uey that (an possibly l?e needed at any time, provided the conditions to glee It -?erfect soundm-ss are Btrlctty in.iintWned.

SYMI'ATHY BUN Mil). 'Die case ut Maria I'.arberi, the Italian girl un? der sentence of death for the murder of her lover, has led to the utterance of a treat deal "f ?entlmental and emotional nonsense entirely apart from ihe question whether or n??t the penalty pronounce?! against the girl shouM ever be carried into eXSCUtkML In all probability It will not be Her case is yet open to review by the higher courts, with ail the chames of re? versals ami new trials which criminals in this state lin.i m> easy at hand. Then there is the 1 opportunity for the exercis?- <?f ?Executive ! chinency, and If that comes at the proper time ; as ?m net of mercy after the functions of th.? | courts have been pertained, ami not as an in I terference with the orderly operation of law in 1 the midst of the di'ierminalion of the case by I the court?, there will be no dlapoalttoi to criticise i Ihe <i "Minor for his humanity. Certainly no ! body desires the death of the girl, nobody but detests the wrong and sympathises with the sor row which incited her to the crime. Hut tli.it is a different thing from making a heroine of In r. and letting maudlin emotions run riot for the sake of founding a woman's Suffrage sentiment on Ihe alleged injustice of her trial. As a matter of fact, there does not app?'.ar t?> have been e.ny Injustice In her trial, or, if there was, the Court of Appeals may be trusted to CORect it. Th?- cry about m?-n Judges, imii Jurors and men Jallem is not a legitimate factor in the case, but Is only the SipiTlSSloa ?>f the ill-considered feelings of ?a few whose realiza? tion of the grievance of s*-x outweighs their Judg? ment of plain aud simple facts. No jurors, Whether men or women, if they did their ?luty, could have reached any other verdict than the one proimunced. Neither was It reached with undue haste. The girl had no less chance than every other person charged with crime. She wan convicted no more quickly than man com? monly ar<* when their crimeB are as plain ami andhtputed as hers. Caesar, the negro who mur tiered a woman a few w?'?-ks ag??, has already been convicted, and he Is only one <?f many win? have been exp?-dliiously tried. The cas?*s of Harris ami Buchanan are not parallel. In them the evidence was Involved, Ihe points were In? tricate, nuil thf? crimes were only proved after prolongi-d effort and Study. There is no question of the guilt of Maria Barberl. The murder Bhe committed was a horrible one. No iynoraiice of ??ur laws excus?'s lier act, for murder is a crime In all lands. The talk that she should be freed aud petted a? a typical specimen of woman oppressed and suffering at the hands of man Is fouwled on, a total disregard of the necessary restraints of civilized society. The woman was wronged. She had an awful grievance, and one which the law would hare righted for her had she appealed to it. She took venpeance In her own hand, executed It with deliberation and in a manner as brutal as any man could have devised. To pity her sa?l plight is th?' natural prompting of ??mit feeling man ami aroman. To bold her free from gnfll or blame those who acted as her judges is to weaken the fore?* of ail law. All refined feelings r?v??it at the thought of thl*? woman bring made to suffer death at the bands of man, and everybody will in- glad to have her sent at the proper time to prison instead of to tin* execution cbamlier.

Perhaps the in?i*?t complete and ?leflnit.? plat? firm put forward by any section or member of the Radical Liberal party In England In the ??lesen! campaign Is that of ihe National Reform Union. Certainly it i** tin* mosl significant, fur it ciprtesti iiu* vi'ws of those Advanced Radi? cela who bars for some yens been the milll ml element of the party, ami who appear to bold it" fut ur?- ?n their banda, it may properly be r? ggrded, therefore, aa the scheme "f procedure to which the Radicale, if successful in this elec? tion, would have Inclined We can scarcely add that it is the scheme which ti?\y when they m-xt come into power will geek to execute, because a gnat many things may happen before then, and some of the changea demanded may already in* effected by Ihe familiar proceas of "dMiing." This defeated platform Is. how? v?r, worihy of study as u revelatloa <?f the present Radical cris-d, and as an exposition of what England has lost?or escupid, according !" Ibe point of view -by rejecting Radicalism and adopting Union bun. Three great reforms" gre Oral demanded. <?n<? Includes the principle "one man, one vot?-"; State payment of election expenses, an?l the payim-ut of salaries to .Members of Parliament. The Hist of these Ih sound enough, so far as It goes, Hut It certainly should have couple?) with it the .-final? ly Important principle "one vote, one value.'' If it is not right for one man to have two rotea while another baa only one, it is n??t rlghl for one vote In one place to have us nimli power as two votes In another place. It Is a geriOtta IndlctBSenl of these Radical "reform?is" thai they bars opposed the latter reform shoot as persistently as they have advocated the former, stat.? pay? tuellt of the cost of elections si?ellis. from TllO American point of view, entirely pr.ip.-r. Tin? holding of elections is a function of g<>v??rnm?*nt, and the cost shoiiiii in* met by the Government To ask candidates to pay It Is BO BOTS reason? able than to ask Members to pay the cost ,,f keeping the Parliament Houses In repair. Sala? ries to members Is also an American principle, and Is in vogue In nearly all l?gislative bodlea throiiBhoiit the world. Its adoption in Baglasd would probably make little real difference, and would disappoint both ihe fears of Its f?,es and the hopes of its friend**. Next comes a revision of Parliamentary prac? tice, by which legislation will be effected more rapidly and all l?*>cal matters be committed to local legislatures The former end Is of doubt? ful utility. Haste Is. in general, not desirable in legislation. It Is better to make laws well than to make them quickly. There are few legislat? ures in the World M rapid and unchecked In action as that of England is now. It far out? strips our own Congrios In such respects. In view <>f tin* flood of rash and ill -considered pro? posals poured inro the II??use of Commons at every session, it is doubtful if any further ac? celeration <>f processes would be for the good ?if the Natl'Hi. A< to the question of local l?*gis iatutvs. thai is already decided, county and pariah Councils ire as much a part of the rnion ist as of the Radical system. Th?*y have come, and they have come to stay, ami to be extended throughout all parts <?f lbs United Kingdom. That may be taken BS settled. Finally, the Rnd Icalfl demand without qualification the eootttton of tin* legislative power of the House of I/irds. Abridgment "f it. or reorganization of tin* House on a new basis. WOttM not answer. They want all power rested in the House of Commons; government, that is, by a single chamber. Thai was the system of the PreUCh Revolution. It is a system practised by few countri?** to-day; bv Greece, Sant?> ?Domingo, ?Coats Btca and the Orange ?Free (Mate. There may be others, but n??ne which ?England is likely to take for a ?model From tlie AtiHTican point of view, two chambers are eminently desirable. Cxt course the House of Lords should be reformed, wholly reorganized. In its present condition it is an absurd anachro? nism. But In Its place there should be ?i vital. efficient, representative I'pper House. These reforn>s. however, would not have been regarde?! as a finality. Car from it. They woulil merely have made dear the way for other sweep? ing changes. Among these we may enumerate Home Hui?* all ?around, beginning with Irelaad; disestablishment and dlsendowmenl <?f all state , churches; s system <>f taxation so graduated thai the more industrious and prosperoui a man was th?- higher his tax rate would be; ami a practical admission "f the clslms <?f iaiH>r as set forth by its accredited representatives on such questions as Ihe limitation of hours, full right of combination, comnenaatloa f"r injuries, and <li re?'t repiv?entati"ti in Parliament whatever that may mean These are only a few ??f the most striking items in the ?Radical Programm?*. Th? y Indica! fairly enough the gen?ral tenor <?f th'- tvhoie. They show what government in Qreal Britain WOUM probably hav?- been, or what Minister? woulil have tried to mak?* it. had ihe ?Radicale, Instead ??f th>* Unionists, swept the country at this election. It will be of interest i?. .'"Hipare, or to contrast, it with th.- Unionist programme, when the bitter is developed.

It must be Mid, however, that as soon as "th"* very high power of his office" was revealed to Bowler he ?lid ti.it ?brink from the attempt to exercise it. As we anderstand it, he hold? that If a law ander which an appropriation is made by Congress Is unconstitutional In his opinion, it Is his duty ami within his power to prevent the payment of money out of that appropria? tion. This power, It appears, he propones to ex errise for Hie tlrst time in preventing the pay? ment of the bounty due to producers of beet sugar under the act of ?MM} on account of sugar made by them before tin* repeal <>f that law in 1 **>'.)l. It 1% announced that Bowler "will hear counsel"'on August 7 on the question of the constitutionality of the bounty provision of the act of IM?), and it Is also announced in his be? half that Bowler baa loui* beOB of ihe opinion that the payment of bounties by the QovenUMlt f ihe United States Is unconstitutional. It ? will at ??nee l??> perceive?! that the ?'lalmants anil their counsel kn??w now as w?'ll as they will after the "hearing* what th" decision will hi?. Of course we are not Inclined to gire any credeaes to ugly rumora thit are said to be afloat to the effect that If the ?.lalnianta for sugar bounties would contient "to pay toll" to certain persons In Washington, constitutional scruples and objections In the Treasury Department would speedily disappear. We would prefer to I believe, if we could do so, that Bowler has placed himself in his present ridiculous atti? tude on his own motion, and we sincerely believe that he has been richly endowed by nature and education With many of the qualities necessary for such an exhibition. What he does appear to lack Is individual and unsupported audacity. When a Controller, who is by law made inde? pendent of the Secretary of the Treasury and whose decisions cannot be reviewed, modified or overruled by that otflcer. is reluctant or un? willing to decide a case until be has received "a straight tip" as to how the Secretary or the chief clerk of the Treasury Department wants it derided, there is strong reason to believe either that that Controller lacks backbone or that he is hol I free agent. It Is a well-known fact that Sec? retary Carlisle believes the Sugar Bounty law to be unconstitutional, but when he made his argu? ment In that behalf In Congress he had no idea that the question could be decided outside the courts. Mr. Carlisle also held that tin? Ocean Mall law of the I.Ist Congress was unconstitu? tional, and we observe that Controller Bowler holds (he gam# opinion, and Is said to be casting about for some pretext to prevent the payment* due under the contracts with certain steamship companies. Is it possible that Bowler, the brilliant, Is only a pliant tool of the Secretary of the Treasury and his son. after all? The amount appropriated by the last Congress for ihe payment of sugar bounties was about $5*238,000. Of course if Controller Bowler re? fuses to pass the accounts, there will be expen? sive litigation and lone delay before the claim? ants can obtain the money that Is Jusiiy due them Not only so. but every appropriation tnaile by Congress in pursuance of a law that Bowler regards as unconstitutional will be sub? ject to the same vicissitudes.
