The vacant seal from Kentucky could bf tilled
at any time hy a Kopuhlhan, it ls claimed, if
itovernor Bradley would call a session of lin
Ijegrslature for that purpose: hut he holds that
a vacancy will not exist until March 4, and he
may then faoclfk to appoint a Hepuhlican until
the legislature eau I'onvetie. Should this seat
l?e vacant, forty four Hepuhlhans, with lac
casting vote of the Vice President, would suf
flee, hut aivonlliig to information so far forty
five can he counted upon for a Republican
tariff.
The seat from Delaware 1* not truly or hon?
estly vacant, lt ia not agreeahle to differ from
a Senator so ahle as afr. Hoar, off gfgaagrktl
wita, hut the vote hy which Mr. Dupont was re?
fused a seat hy a hare ngrlsfgg majority of one,
owing to the temporary nhseuce of Senator
Jones of Nevada, was an outrage to the Stale

BO flagrant ard palpably unjust. Hu. decision and

lie fannel led, and the action of ihe Senate on the
taggi treated ns invalid because, coin ra ry to

On the tariff ?) neal ion. hesidos tho Republican
Senators munieiafcd. there is ground for belief
that more than one Democratic Senator will rote
t<? sorurc necessary revenue for the Treasury bf
the only niode possible with the assent of n Re?
publican majority in the House, lt would iu
,l?*<'<l lie a s: range ending of the patriotic prnfes
sionn made hy National Democrats if they shi.nl.l
so vote ns to ansist thc silver men in another
rni,l bsssbj Hip Treasury, thus doing incalculable
Injury to lnislness and industry. But there are
oilier Democrats, like Senators Murphy of New
York mid Smith of N'pw-.lersey. whose power
io defeat the worst features of the Wilson bill
wns unflinchingly exerted, aud arba would fla

.-upi,-.! for inat purjioso. Btu we fail to se,- tlw
necessity for ihe ap|M,intineui of a commission
of five persons, g| au annual salary of .<*>.i*.mi

business and an architectural ornanietn io the
IMlghborbood. Of course, no oin- believes that
Its cost will fall short of the limit naiu.-.l. Tba!
never happens. There is a mu.-li stronger likeli
bond, in poiut of fact, thai before Its completion
an additional appropriation will be asked. Timi
is ilie usual .-ours... But tlint ls only an addi
lions] reason why the preliminary expenditures
should be Hie more closely s.-niiinlzed. This is
not a lime when 1'oiigress .an afford lo direct
lavish and un necessary expenditures upon pull
li." buildings. This is a necessary work, ron
tess.'div, hill In llie present condition of ihe
Treasury thc need of a mool rlflrltl economy in
.-yeti the Billilli details of construct lou is flpiwr

thc Treasury a sinecure commission, io run in,

Justice under ihe obj regime, and Mr. Brown,
we believe, is a practising lawyer; both active
politicians, bul neiih.-r of them qualified by ex
perieiice or training for the duties, jf iiiere I ie
any. devolving upon ihis comwlsaion. Mr. KU
bretl, is ihe pre*eui Collector of ihe Port, from
Which I'ir.-umstauce he derives the only shadow
Of tltuess for the function of superintending Ibo
erection <?f the new 1'twton House. Mr. Poet,
as already said, is au architect; hut lbs Govern
mein has a Supervising Architect, whi.-h makes
it unnecessary lo employ another. Mr. Hugh .1
I irani is not known lo possess any peculiar
quantisation* for this position, unless bis ex
peri.-nce as an oflflVe holder and his family r.-la
ilou as Senator Murphy's son in law may bs so
considered Here, then, are tl ve men, mostly
politicians, pensioned upon ibo Government nt a
cost of I2&.000 u year, for which they cannot be
expccie.i to render 23 c.-nts' worth of useful b#T
\ i.-c, and for practically an unlimited Hm*. Pot
ih,'se practical politicians are not likely to bsstra
the completion of n work whose ciiuinuaiice ls
worth to ea.-h of ihein !0.t**> a year. They are
not made thal way.
Phis waste of $25,000 a year ls pol very much,
tn he sure, for il givai Iioveruineiit which ,-x

what look place lhere on Tuesday night.
Three negroes were taken lo Alllile City to
plead io lbs charge <>f murder. Prom tb* couti
they were taken lo Jail, "As expected.-' so iii.
report runs, "Ihe mob broke into ihe jail." Ap
pnreiitly it is always "expected" iln-re that a
mob will break imo a Jail, but with child
like faith In ihe popular love for law and order,
tlie louisiana Sheriff seldom lakes precautions
against the expected. Doing as they were ,-x
peeled IO do. Ihe mob proceeded lo execute the
death penalty on the Hil,? men who had not
yet been triad, and whose escape from death. If
gullly. they had no reason to fear. One of Hie
men was hanged on Hie spot. The oilier two were
reserved for mole eXflJSbdtS tortures. The scene
of their .rim,' was twelve miles away, sud there
the mob decided lo have Hie executions. They
made the wretches walk part <>I the dlatsnCe io
their own death, and I beg procured a wagon, ami
in four hours rea. -bsd th.-ir desi Ina Hon. Tbsre
they set Hie two men, who were biller against
each other, lo lighting oin their las! quarrel with
llielr lists, willie Ihe ex-cii|ioiiers formed a
circle and enjoyed Hie fun. Tiring of ihis spoil,
they bulli a tire to burn the murderers io deal h.
and. lt ls ivjH.ried. did burn one of Hiern Tiie
other th.-y hanged and riddled with bullets. Th. n
they all went home, proudly .ons. lons of baring
ti-iliel.l tlie honor of Hie State of louisiana
Now. Hie worst feature o' this case ls not Iib
lawlessness. However much the lynching habit
ia to lie deplored, or however little reason there
may have been for indulging If on untried, if
guilty, men, the taking of the law into their
own hands by a band of men Impatient of
slower prcHvaseM ih a trifling: evil compared with
thc scnil-clvlllr.ed social state which those lynch- I
ers reveal. They were not au orderly hand
diane Being rude Justice, they were a crowd of
barbarians gloatlag ..vcr cruelty, nuiklag Ihe .
victims of their "justice" minister io their Dru

necessity for vigilance committee*, hut it can I
not "ive Itself up to the cultivation of blood

THE GOVERNOR I.V/J THE ST CIT TE BOOK.
lu his meaaage io ihe l*eadalatnre ttovernor
Black iMeUlgently and with suitable emphasis
proteated agataal the niultlplkatloa of laws far
beyond the requlreaaenta <?f the public welfare.
Profuse and nnneceaaary legislation ht au evil j
which has l?eeii greatly diminished in many
stales by ihelr adoption of Ihe policy of blew
nial leaaloaa. The ffcreeruor luis reached Ihe
conclusion, perhaps too hastily, that Ihe same
remedy could be advantageously applied in tin'
State of New-York, with hs enormous population
and vast material Interests, li is an interesting
question, wliii h ought not to he settled hy a snap
Judgment. Rm lhere is no doubt thai ibr abuse
which be described baa grnwa lo great propoT" '
tiona, or that a large meaanre of relief nlgbi lie
obtained nmler the preaenl system of annual sis
soi;v if members of Ihe Legislature would ron

I'uhappily. thal la a condition which ls not likely
io prevail in the near future, lint lbe alinatkai is '
not wholly incurable on ihal account.
The truih i* timi the 1.0vernor himself, while i
desirous, it not hopeful, of accomplishing a radi- \
cal change to biennial sessions, has it in his
power lo bestow ll)Ktll tile people niaii.V of tile
benefits which he thinks would result therefrom, j
Ile Mid ni bia meaaage: "I should be glad if no

"ol- lo llieet sollie Urgent public Hoed." We hope
a ii. I bellera that in Baying this he meant, not
merely le express a preference, but lo indi, ale
au Intention, bul it is to be regretted Ihal be did
not e0 somewhat further. The |*eop]c would
have welcomed such a frank and explicit au
nonneemenl as was made by Ihe present <iov
ernor of New .lerseV at ihe beginning of his ad
ministration. Mr. it riggs not only pointed otil
I lie eril of whl.-h Mr. Illa, k has justly coin
plained, hui pledged himself to reduce it so far
as poaslbla by vetoing every bill presented lo
him which, in bia deliberate Judgment, did nol
respond io some Important public? demand. A
similar declaration hy the Governor of New -York
al lin Opening Of the session would have received
cordial approbation, and all the more because it
is a conspicuous fad thal Oovernor Hrlggs, by
faithfully keeping his promise, has accomplished
practical reeulta of great advantage io ihe people
of New-Jersey. Mr. Blaek would bare done well
io start willi that dear understanding, hui ii ;s
not too late for him to enforce his original Inti
malton hy a special meaaage The session is still
young, bm lhere ls im apparent Intention at Al?
bany io diminish the legislative grist. Tne Hov
ernor still holds g strong hand, however, and
we hope he will play lt to li!* own credit mid the
advantage of the Kial?.

Here are two striking facts for public com
sideiaiioii. one la that New Norh is contem?
plating au outlay of upward nf fr*o,000,ono for
a ayah tu of rapid iraoali by underground
loads. Hud no one is ilisiiirii.il hy Ihe fear of

The Atlantic Avenue Commission and liss
laong Island Railroad, working together, have
agreed on a plan for Kinking lu part and elevat?
ing in pan tin- railroad tracks ilia! run on the

We are hopeful thal they will succeed In Buding

xo FEAR OF THE. PLAGUE.
Iii-poiis ot the ravages of the bubonic plague
al Bombay and Kurracbee have been extrav
agantly exaggerated, ami. ir unthinkingly ac?
cepted as line, may have caused disquiet here
in some timorous mimi- The situation is no
doubt dlatretudng, and calls for strict quaran?
tine and energetic sanitary work. Hut it la not
nellly as bad as. for example, the situation in
Havana, tuba. In Bombay, with sihi.ihni in
habitants, the highest death rate from the
plague has i.n |,.ss than TdtU a week, or one
in I.UUu; while in Havana, with 2T*U.U(bJ Inbab
lunns, the present death rate from the three ep?
idemics of smallpox, yellow f<-\er and typhoid
fi vcr is now reported lo be over IWU a week.
or one iii 417 the latter case being nearly four
tinies as lind as ihe former. Ami in Bombay
lhere is reason to believe Ihe crlais is past, ami
the sanitary authorities are getting the plague
under control, while in Havana Ihe season of
| teat Hence is .nih just beginning.
The only country outside of Asia which
seriously f.-rn's au incursion of the plague is
Russia, where something like a panic appears
to exist; and not without some cause. As ;i
Si. Peteraburg paper says. "Ruaaia is always
Ihe country that Buffers most from the pest."
i Thal ls quite true, and ii is because a large
. part of Itiissia hus not advanced beyond the
semi barbarous Asiatic stage of civilisation.
i The teeming populations of Soul h. Lillie ami
! West itnssia are Ignorant, Buperatltlooa ami
I squalid beyond description. The diseases char
\ arterial k of poverty ami tilth, such as dipth
I Iberia, typhus mid typhoid fevers, and Asiatic
