77//; TMAXtVAAL COUP D'ET\T.
If "Ootn Paul" Krliger were a North Amerl
! MM Indian, iustend of a South African Roer, lie
. would bo known as -old Man Afrald-of-Hls
: Horses," or us "Presldeiit-Afrald-of-ll!s-Owu
! Court." The latter title would exactly expreee
the present situation in the Transvaal, which la
I variously described ?is threatening and critical.
The rtrSsisat 'mil his most obedient ?en-ants,
the Volksraad. cannot trust their own Supremo
Court. They are afraid It will deal Justly with
the hated Britishers and Yankees. Wherefore
they first Insult the court by declaring It to be
subject to the corrupt Intlu? nee of Cecil Rhodes
' whom the great Boor novelist has Just por
i ? rayed as Anti-Christ and then effect ? coup
I d'etat by deposing If from its Independent place
? and subordinating it to the Volksra.id. If Is as
j if Congress should declare the United States Su
i preme Court to 1k> unworthy of confidence, and
I therefore to be subordinate to Congress, and all
Us decisions subject to Congressional rev Won
and perhaps reversal. The chief difference Is
I that while such a scheme could not be executed
I here. It can be in the Transvaal, where the
Krflger oligarchy II practically supreme.
Tne Supreme court of Um Transvaal, which
is thus unceremoniously shelved, was established
by the successive enactment? of 1931, 1881 and
1888. It consists of a Chief .Itisiice and four
Associates, or polene judge*. The Constitution,
or Orondwet, declares in its atxty oecoud para?
graph that judicial officer? are to be "free and
independent" of the President. The Volksraad
is. however, superior to the President, and now
assumes to be superior to the courts also. Per?
haps that is constitutional. The Grondare! says
DOtblQg on the subject. But as the Orotidwel
itself was adopted by the Volkeraad, and was
never submitted ??> a popular vote, and as It con?
tains no provision whereby It may be altered or
amended, the assumption is rational that th*
Volkarssd is fife to alter it at will, and that
the Volksraad is competent? to make and un?
make coiiits and revolutionize the whole Gov?
ernment according to Ita own pleasure.
Such an esercite of power as this must, how?
ever, be regarded as the last deeperate resort
of a losing cans.'. A Government which repudi?
ates its (iwn chief eourl of Justice musi be In
a prettj bad way. Rj such an act It destroys
the good repute of If? every branch, l'or If the
?tardy, orthodox Bo?ra or the Supreme Court
are not u> he trusted, what reason is there for
trust lug iheir brethren In the Volksraad. or even
their venerable uncle, the Prealdettt? It de?
stroys, moreover, all confidence In the word
and engagement? of ine Gorernment. For if by
? single vote tne Volkarssd esn set aside the
declatoua df the Supreme Court, what is to bin?
der it from repudia tini:, in like manner, all
treaties, laws and obligations of every kind' It
is an unmistakabl8 step ? ward anarchy, and a
long one. and it must hasten the very CStSStro
phe Paul Kl?ger is seeking to avoid. It will
not l>e well fot the Transvaal for the world to
find that there er* no Court? and no justice at
Pretoria.
REQUIEM AXD MitV BOXO.
The days i,f the Hon. Predelle T. Dnboia, of

liered. HI? View: Upon lile tariff 0G free silver
or ruba or any other curreut question win .-ease

o'dock noon .m Thuraday of thta week, h is
lint certain that tbey will have much weight
after thai polnl ?if time anywhere. But so long

to promulgate his opinion? upon any subject,
whaiever may be the qneatlon under discussimi.
and have tln-m ?dinted in full in the official "Itec

urday last h?? embraced the opportunity offered
by a motion ?Or a Sunday session to administer
a relink.? to the Renate for not Baring adopted
a auggeatlon wblcfa be made during, tbe laal aea
?Ion for the dlalribution of th* appropriation
hills to the various committees, and. incidental?
ly, to dlaburden blmaelf of some eztremei dote
ful prognosiieaiions concerning tbe future of tbe
Republican party. Addreaalng Ibe Republicana
?? thai body, in? said, referring to tne organisa?
tion of the next Senate: "Vou will have no
jiower to organize the Senate." And, as if this
were not sufficiently far-reaching in Inspiring
terror, be continued: "Vou cannot organize the
"next Senate. Vou cannot organize any other
"Senate. As was said at St. I.ouis, the Repub
' Tiean parly as a party has written its last law
"on the statute books of this country,'' On the
face of it. ihls would seem to end It. The Re*
publican party may as well wind up Us affaira
and ^'o into bankruptcy. "Fred" Dubois has
sung its requiem and his own swan song in these
prophetic att?nuera.
And yet and vet isn't It bandy possible that
"I'red" may have exaggerated the disasirons
conaequencefl to tbe Republican party of tbe
il..fed ion from it of blmaelf and tbe other sil?
ver Senatore. Tbe party has survived several
bard blows of a similar character during the
forty years and more of ils existence. Andrew
Jonnaon'a desertion was one. He had quite a
following, But after they had all gone the party
was iirong enough lo go right on electing Pros
ideata and CoUB*reaeea ami making laws. <;.??
eral Benjamin 1". Butler*? withdrawal was an?
other hard blow, but the party managed (0 sur
vive it. Very eminent leaders .-irul statesmen
look part In Ibe Liberal Republican secession of
isT'j. and many mor?? of Nat Iona 1 reputation be?
came Mugwump? in 1884, But tin? Rep?blicas
party held on ir. what was for the most part a
victorious career. Senator Dubois and his co?
adjutor?, th?? silver Senatore, practically with?
drew from the party when In tbe hist session of
Congress tbey held np measure? tbe distinctive
Republican character of wblcb was unques?
tioned, and as a factlonaj balance of ?tower de?
manded an absolute rarrender of principle on
th.? part of the Republican majority as the price
of much-needed leglalatlon. Tbey math? their de?
fection orticai and formal when, upon the fail?
ure of the same game ?n tbe Nations] Conven
ti.a., they rose up and departed, But the party
went right OS all the same and ehi ted its Presi
dent.
No, no; ihe party has not "written its last law
on the statute books of this country." It has
ban ?riling laws on the statute hooks of this
country nearly all the time for thirty six years,
li* wisdom and practical atatesmaaablp bare
been shown in a united country, In vastly ex?
tended business enterprises, in universal pros
perity, enhanced credit and a fomnoa) position
among the nations of the earth, and have been
accentuated by the gtgaaflc failure of tbe op?
|H:slng party Within tbe last four years to bring
anything but disturbance and distress |g Up?
country, if the party has made mistake?, as
ill parti*? do and must It has not, as other
Marlies have, persisted In them with hidebound
ihetlnacy, bul has profited by experience, cor?
rected them and moved forward to meet with
'letter equipment and larger knowledge its re?
sponsibilities and ?luths. The gentlemen who
have turned their hack? upon It may be ?lucere
In their belief that the free coinage of pllver I?
of more Importance to the country than any
other Issue, aud In that belief Justify their se?
cession. However that may Im>. they greatly
misjudge their own power If they suppose they
can fores'8 majority of the prop'1' to adopt their
???inclusions, and vastly exaggerate the Impor?
tance of their action If they think it will be ?lis
asfrouB to the HepubUcan parly.
As to "Fred" Dubois and his swan som?, he
does, not seem to us t?j have as clear ? eoncep
tlon of the SR ES thai as the hardf Sid moun?
taineer had. Who, when his wife said to him,
"Why, PopjMT. your fe?d are cold. Vou're gota
to die. What'Il come of ns7' answered, grimly:
"Oh. g'way! I dunno whnt'll come of you
what I want to know Is what'll com?? of me."
"Fred" nee?ln't bother about what'll come, of
the Republican party. It's of more conaequencs
to him what'll i-oine of him.

The plan for adapting the canals of this
State tO the paeaag* of the smaller craft of the
Navy to the (?rent Lakes will doubtleOS meet
with general approval. At present the Navy Is
practically unrepresented on tin? Great Lakes.
Indeed, it Ik excluded therefrom by treaty obli?
gations. It may never be needed there It is
to be hoped and belloved it never will. Vet It is
conceivable that through the exigencies of for
elgn war or domestic insurrection It might be
needled there, and needed very badly. In iUCb
circumstances the ability to ?end in a fleet with?
out delay might be worth a hundred times the
cost of making it jrossiblc so to do.
But there is another object to be attained, not
hypothetical but positive and of Inestimable
value. Pnlargetnent of the canals so as to ad?
mit warships will facilitate the pnss;ige (>f larger
and more commodious merchant vessels, and
' thai will promote th?? interests of trade ami
peaceful Industry. For ?very warship that may
possibly be wanted ?n the lakes a thousand mer
1 chant vessels will actually make th?? paaaage,
bringing the harvests of the Northwest to New
York, to tidewater and to the markets of tin
world more cheaply and rapeditlonaly than be?
fore. That will bea great gain to tills metropo?
lis, and not to It alone, but to every lake port
and to all the States bordering on the lakes and
tributary to their commerce in fact. In a more
or less direct degree, to tie? arbole Sation.

The change In the condition of business, which
some demagogues refus,? to see mid som?' |n>
lltical business men are trying to retard, Is.ln no
other respect mor?? striking than in the unhesi?
tating confidence which has governed all money
markets since the election, No one can conaider
what tin? situation was last summer, or read <>ver
the daily report? of money markets in the fall,
without realising that this change has been won?
derfully great. Nobody doubted then that 'he
country had abundant resources. The sole ques
llon was whether the people would insist upon
the taxation necessary to yield a sttffictent reve?
nue ami to maintain beyond doubt the ertali:
of the GoTernmenl and the soundness of the cur?
rency. Bine* the decision was made there has
been not ?>ne hour's doubt whether tne currency
would be kept as go<i?l as gold Those who are
still crying out for some radical monetary change
repeal stories of impending peril to which tin?
people now pay riot the least attention.
February is over, and though officiai returns
of foreign commerce for th?? month will not Bp
pear for some lime, the results for the last month
of President Cleveland's Administration can be
estimated eioeely enough for practical purpose?
Riporta always fall off at this scaso:?, moal of
the cotton having been marketed and the grain
forwarded before navigation eloaed, with tbe
opening <>f navigation approaching agata. The
decrease would naturally be urge this year
because ?if ili?? enormous and unprecedented
shipment? in the last quartet of 1800 and in Jan
nary. Thus domestic export? from New -York
have been only 10001 1800,000 larger than last
year in February, while the cotton exports from
other ports have been 4'Jt.iMrj balea, against 404,?
828 last year. The average of daily prices for
middling Dplsnda has been T.10 cents this year.
against 8.08 last year, wbloh would imply a de?
crease of about 88,430,000 in value of cotton ??\
ported not from New-York. Over two-thirds of
the total esporta are thus shown, and indicate
for the month an aggregate of about ?73,1?0??0?.
The Importi at New-York have been In four
weeks 880,787,804, against 140303,100 Last year,
and as these are also about two thirds of th?>
whole It may be Inferred that the aggregate of
Importa wfll fall below esporta about 117,000,000
for the month.
This Is no such excess as was seen in the pre?
vious live months, over 190,000000 per monili.
but Is. nevertheles.?, larger than ir the monili
last year. 819,223,788, In the remaining months
| of the lisca! year the excess of exporis ranged in
? 1888 between, nine and twelve millions, and it
Is not unlike!;.? that Imports may begin to exceed
last year's, unless Congress takes speedy steps
| to prevent large anticipation pf proposed duties.
I But there Is BOW accumulated a heavy credit
' against foreign countries, which baa been eat!
I mated by bankers at 140,000.000, and may easily
I be much more. The change in movement of
\ gold occurred, whether by nur?? coinciden.r
not. in tbe last greek of Augii.:?, after Mr Bryan'?
failure here. Though weeks had passed with
practically n.? movement either way, Importa
suddenly becam?, 82,891,000 in that week, |34,?
???,??? in September, and 827,017,018 in Octo
b.r. Foreign confidencg at once so Increased thai
in placa of nothing but returned Neur?tica Bu
rope began to send gold for supplies needed. 11
is of record that the advices sent over by Inter?
national bankers regarding the result of the ?lec?
tion had much influence.
From September ? il.scesa of esporte over
Import? of merchandise in live months was 8297,
824,974, and of silver 820,491,474, while of gold
the Import* exceeded export ? by 870,082,700
This left about 8207,800,000 balance in favor
of this country, which February has probablj
raised to about 8230,000,000, reckoning ?S?.iws?,.
(mm) silver in February. There muet be de?
ducted a large sum for nnden ablations, and
as dutiable Importa have been In the six months
about 1197,000,000 in Invoiced vain.?, the true
value may have I.? as mocb as 140.000,00(1
greater, while interest on foreign denta and divi?
dends on American Investments may have been
830,000,000 mon. Even then there would re?
main an apparent balance of sicu.immi.immi. arblcb
must bave gone In settlement of previous Indebt
edness or must yet remain due this country. No
otic can say how large the sales of American se?
curities on foreign account were during the
months of most acute apprebenslou last summer.
But it Is not known that anv banker has eatl
mated them at a* much as 1100,000.000, In any
case, whatever the sum mi t., b,. settled,
whether ?KUMmi.immi ,,r conaldcrsbty more, it ???
????. .? any probable balbuce of im?H.rts over ex?
ports during the conili ?_' four months, unless * On
gress unwisely invites and by dilatory action
leavea opportunity for exceptional Importa, By
July new crops will begin to move, and SOW du
lies should be In fore?. This great change in
the moiiotnry situation. Opening the way for ex?
pansion of industries and enterprise, is directly
due to conviction that the people would decide
and fo the fact that they did d.vlde for an lion
est, sound aud truly American policy, leading Eu
rope to retain American securities Instead of
sending them over by the shipload to pay for
products.
It Is Announced Impressively that "Corbett has

Several medical Journals have lately railed at?
te.iiion to the Increasing frequency with which
the newspapers speak of the coialne habit as a
growing danger. For example, a medical Jour?
nal In Memphis, In alluding to this evil, says that
It Is not the pile and vicious who become en?
slaved by the prnctlce. for these classes usually
prefer to Intoxicate themselves with whiskey or
OOlum, but It Is th? working people, and the
negro?? aapaclally, who seem to find an especial
solace in this narcotic. It is also said In a Boston
medical Journal that the future prosperity of a
certain town In Connecticut Is threatened because
a local druggist Introduced a preparation of
cocaine and menthol as a remedy for asthma.
This "snuff" proved go soothing to all classes
thai persons are seen at public entertainments
and everywhere ,n dark corner? Indulging their
passion for It. and the druggists are getting rich
try selling It, although they an? harried and worn
by person.? who rlnp them up at all hours of the
nicht to Obtain a supply. No douht there must
be some percentage of allowance for exaggera?
tion, hot "The Medical Record," of this city,
speaks the truth when It warns persons against
being lured Into an enslaving habit of this sort
bj the snuffs and balms that are so extensively
advertised for catarrh. Many of these do afford
a temporary relief, and therefore the victim
repeals it whenever occasion require? and chari?
tably recommend? it to his friends. Cocaina,
Ilka other narcotica, is ? drug no on? ought reck?
lessly t., tamper with Only the strongest nature
can break the spell of these stupefying poiaona
when they bav? obtained full control of their
victim.
--e->
Mr. William Jennings Bryan took occasion
while In this city to write a letter of congratula?
tion to his newspaper organ here "upon it" work
lu behalf of cheaper gas." To cheapen one's

MUSIC-THE DRAMA.
?,? FALOTE."
Since It la not the easiest tiling In the world to
carry away In one's memory nil th?* finches of wit
or the coruscations of m*lo?'y which lllumtne
the operettas of this latter day. It may he well to
record for future reference the lines which signalize
th? artistic climax In "La Falote. ' which had ils
first production In America at the Casino last
night, it is ft stanxn. the mo?t perfect In rhyitm
and rhythm of anything in tbS work. Its Inches
arc ns perfect as Its feet, and ? preserving It for
poMerlty there Is tint SIM thins; to roil the writer*
of perfeet satisfaction, ?nid that spring? from the
fiirt th.it th- lines most go down unclothed In
their hnhlllment of melody and harmony, and ao
forever remain Incomplet ?. Here they nre:
Tnke this rnndle.
Take, ah! take, this candle.
By the aoadie.
Take It by the hai.dle.
Dramatically and musically these lines and their
setting form the "loading motive" of Ih* operetta;
?o at least It Roi>m"d until the flnnl scene of th*
second act disclosed that the motive of the produc?
tion was far more ambitions than the verses and
their music Indicated. La Falote" has come to us
to multiply for a brief quarter hour the singular.
BUt none the less undeniable, charm of Miss Ful?
ler's picturesque dances and to seek to blond with
that .-harm the added one of vocal music A
chorus of women with fleecy skirts wave their
drapery on S stage Illuminated through plates of
glass from below and sing th? while. When Miss
Fuller first left this community disconsolate the
menegeaaeal of the Casino thought to make good
th?? loss by producing a whol? ItOgefol of her
representations; but that was before the new light
"?ffects had been Invented. When she came back
to us a year ago a rival gave us not only the light
effect! but also a multiplication of herself in a
stageful of Ingeniously arranged mirrors. The fe
! flections could not help working- a ?leal more syn
? chronously than the dancing choristers of last
night l"it thov failed to produce the delightful Im?
pression which, we mak?? no doubt, cauaeo tne sue?
cess of "La Falote'? in parla and which, If it Is
? appTOXlnated here, will stir up an Interest In tho
vs.irk and possibly redeem it.
Aside from this dance i.ml the admirable stage
: setting? there Is nothing In "I.a Falote" to Invite
consideration. If it has cleverness of conceit, or
brightness of dialogue, or grace of construction,
: they hiv all been killed In the translation or
adaptation Scene-pointer and costumer have indeed
done their duty, more thin they ought In ?onsclec.ee
j to have been n?k'-d to do, ami there are S few
I snatches of melody In the score which are calculated
I to please, hut for the rest nothing or little is to be
: said An air of amateurishness pervaded the per
formen last night, which was surprising consider?
ing th?? number of experienced people concerned in
It Hut wh-n It Is recalled thai tie? most expe?
rienced of them all. Mr. W. .1. Be Moyne. was the
unhapplest of thoTi all In the musical score, that
fact may help to explain the situation. There were
Julius Bteger, to walk through the play, be him?
self and sing ? number of songs to emphasize his
own well-Juatlned confidence in hlmeelf as ? singer;
Miss Eva Davenport, to prove the value of an as?
sertive voice and Individuality; Miss Yvonne de
Trevllle, to invite sympathy for sincere endeavor
and praiseworthy music.il gifts, and Mis? Paula
Edwarde! (if a guess may be ventured where took
and programme leave one In the lurch?, to make the
most of the fun contained in the play. The r? st
was silence or worse.
MR. LOH8B*8 symphony CONCERT.
Mr Otto t.ohse attracted the favorable attention
of New-York muetc-loveri last year by his uncom?
monly hrilllant conducting of several operatic per?
formances In Mr DassrOSCh'S season. Since then
he has added himself to the ranks of musicians
resident In the city; last evening he appeared
again In the capacity of director this time of an
orchestral conce-f. As a symphonic conductor Mr
Lohso displayed the same excellent finalities that
made the poi fonos mi? of "ble ICeisteretager" last
j spring notable a decided and thoroughly musical
? temp?rament and complete command of the tech
I nique of the orchestra. The orchestra he led last
evening whs r.ot ? body of the tlrst rank, but he
persuad??'. Il to an admirable perfo.-mnn -e of Beet?
hoven's Seventh Symphonv and one of (loldmark's
"Bakuntala" overture of extraordinary richness cf
color and pregnant dramatic force That Mr
Lobee Is u musician of intellectual qualities he
showed by the eenee of proportion In his work, the
discrimination of his adjustment of contrast: in
? his ellmax-bulldlng he is a neater of compelling
I power.
The programme had upon It a novelty in the
' shape of iir. Dvorak'? new lymphonk poem. "The
i Water Fa\." one of three fantastic programme
, piece! that are the las' products of his pen. It
mav :><? ??gr.I at otn?.- that "The, Water Pay" will
not .nid very materially to nr. Dvorak*! reputation.
for It is more a product ?if his adroitness in the
I manipulation of e single short them.? that per?
sists throughout the piece and in the rartety and
entrai ring beauty of his treatment of the orches?
