The exclusion -of certain parts of President
McEialej's speech is Indicated in the Judge's
letter and to this extent It Is not misleading.
To quote one part. however, which makes for
the Judge's view* and to exclude another and
' itallj important part of the statement of
President McKiuley on reciprocity may be
Facctlcoed by the practice of attorney* at the
liar, but the people have a right to expect some
thing different In a candidate for tbe Presi
dency. That Judge Parker did knowingly in
viio a misconception of M>Kinle.v*« views on
redprodty as related to the tariff is made
jsaalfest by a glance at what "our martyred
President" (and therefore to 1*» treated justly
as to his memory) did say on thin subject In
Ills last great speech. Here »re the words
By ssnsibls trade srrsnoements which will
not interrupt our homo production we shall ex

system which provides a mutual exchange of
commodities Is manifestly essential to the con
tinued and healthful growth of our export trade.

The period of exciustveness Is past. The ex

If anything more were needed to demonstrate
the unfitness of Justice D. Cady Herrick for the
high office to which he aspires, the shameful
showing made by his career as Judge-Boss at
the State capital, to which we surrender a large
amount of space this morning, should suffice.
Justice Herrick. after dragging the Judicial
ermine in the mire of Albany partisan politics,
seeks to extend the field Of his action as the
holder of high office and the manager of the
lowest type of machine politics over the entire
Empire State.
The depths to which a Justice of the Supreme
Court could sink are shown by the fact that Her
rick, when he had been In supreme control of
the Albany Democratic machine for nine years,
not only failed to prevent the notorious corrup
tion in that city in the election of 1803. but on
Election Day, when he should have been hold
ing court in Kingston, counselled with his sup
porters at home how to increase the majority
for Maynard In Albany County when the State
went overwhelmingly Republican. No wonder
this led to talk of his impeachment, and "The
Brooklyn Times" said: "If Justice Herrlck has
'not the decency to retire from the place he has
"prostituted to partisan and factional purposes,
"proceedings should at once be taken for his re
The details of the career of the Jndge-Boss
should preclude his advancement in the service
of the State.
The «l»-atli of Sir William Uarcourt deprives
British public life of one of its two greatest
historic figures since the death of Mm late Mar
quis of Salisbury. It is true that for some time
his part in public affairs had not been an active
one. Nearly six years have elapsed since he
formally retired from the leadership of the Lib
eral party, making the announcement of that
step in a letter to Mr. John Morley which, with
its aggressive and incisive tone, proved that
his retirejijeni was not due to any waning of
bis Intellectual powers. As a free lance he re
mained thereafter a notable and formidable fig
ure in the House of Commons, on the popular
platform and In the press. But advancing age
and failing healtti more- and more circumscribed
bis activities, and not long ago it was made
known that after the present Parliament, at
most, his seat at St. Stephen's would know him
no more. That premonition of retirement has
now been irrevocably fulfilled.
British politics and, indeed, the world are
losers. We may uot rank Sir William Harcourt
quite by the side of Peel and Gladstone and
Disraeli and Salisbury, but certainly he had a
foremost place in the next grade of statesmen.
He was. perhaps, the peer of any of them in
scholarship, in legal learning. In the use of
letters, BJkd there were few who rivalled him
In ulmbl«Mi. «s of wit, iv controversial skill. in
vigor of debate. Not a great orator, lie was an
engaging au<l effective speaker. Not a Kreat
party leader, lie was a tower of strength to
his party, especially in lighting .lays, and one
of its wisest and most authoritative counsellors.
Never rising to the. highest om>ial dignity, lie
was surpassed by Done In hi* unselfish devotion
to public duty. Giver and taker of some of the
hardest blows that ever Wl in the Parliament
ary arena, he was tv«- posseaor of an unfail
ing kindliness and the exponent of a statesman
like dignity that will be sorely missed in those
more hurried and more strenuous days.
The effect of his death upon British politics
will probably l>e imperceptible. IU» had ceased
to be a political force. As the one-time leader
of a faction of the Liberal party, he no longer
stood In 'lie way of complete reunion of that
party, whether under Ix>rd Ilosebery or any one
else. The lad six y««ar* have so accustomed his
former colleagues and followers to his absence
from their councils that ho will now scarcely
be stjssad. But in the House, of which he was
for more than a generation a conspicuous orna
ment, the absence of his familiar form from
the front bench will bo a mute nnd painful re
minder if loss; and whenever in the course of
high debate there is reference to the stirring
initials of the last fifty year*, or some incursion
into that tangled maze of International law of
which lie held so confident a key, there will be
a wistful listening, but all in vain, for the voice
that used to apeak with so much of illumina
tion and command. With his departure the
.classic school of British statesmen, extending
from the elder Pitt to Gladstone, is all but
closed. Whether the new school which mic
cce«is it will succeed it for better or for worse
remains for time to tell.
Nearly the whole of the last number of "The
Cement Age" is devoted to the service ren
denni by concrete In the building of the New-
York subway. Aside from the provision made
for transportation through that passage, the
work of th«* contractors divided itself into
three principal tasks. One was excavation, an
other was the safeguarding of sewers, gas and
water pipes and electric wires that were tem
porarily exposed, and the third was the con
struction of a substantial tube through which
the underground road should run. In this last
part of the enterprise the principal reliance was
eajKNwX Kodn of steel were introduced into it
in order to lend additional strength. The same
metal was us»«d in the roof arches, longitudinal
girder* and pillars. Moreover, felt and asphalt or
mastic was required for waterproofing purposes.
For these features, however, much smaller quan
tities of material were consumed than for the
rest of tbe conduit, whose sides, top and bottom
consist almost exclusively of concrete, as do
also tbe station platforms and stairways.
Two important objects have been promoted
by this system of construction. It was far more
economical than lt?i<k masonry, and cost the
taxpayers of th«> city far less. Ir enabled the
<-ontractors to make lower bids than would
have been practicable otherwise. Again, far
more rapid progress was possible in conse
quence. There have been vexatious delays
enough at it is. The restoration of the surface
of disturbed streets to their normal condition
and the beginning of actual service on the un
derground road have been delayed In a way
that has sadly tried public patience. It is mani
fest, though, that if concrete had not been so
extensively employed, the completion of the
work would have been deferred many months
Hydraulic cement, which is the most expen
sive ingredient of concrete, is an old favorite
of engineers, but it has developed an astonish
big popularity and usefulness in tbe last five
or six years, so much so as to initiate a new
era in construction. It does not equal in ita
revolutionary influence the steel skeleton, now
almost universally adopted for targe buildings.
That innovation makes possible the erection
of Meh loftier structures than would otherwise
be f^agible. Concrete is merely a substitute for
. msteriaiK. ti.ons particularly brick and
•tone, and workt no radical cuangei In design.
Still, its adaptability to service In warehouse
walls, factory chimneys, foundations for steel
frame buildings, breakwaters, bridges and rail
way viaducts has been folly recognized only of
late and the discovery has strfkin«ly enlarged
its sphere of usefulness. The people of New-
York have ample- occasion for satisfaction over
the results which Mr. McDonald'* sub-contrac
tors have secured therewith.

The entrance of Prince Sviatopolk-Mirsky
upon the duties of Minister of the Interior seems
to be regarded In Russia with more enthusiasm
and hopefulness than appeared at his appoint-
Tiient to that oflko. There is a general reeling
that a new era has opened, and that better days
are dawning upon tbe empire than it has known
before. It nay unhesitatingly be sniil. aa Boa
suns aay, and as the new Minister hiulself
frankly says, that there is much need of re
form. The question is whether the new Min
ister will be able to effect It. The tank liefore
him is not one upon which he is to be congratu
lated. I! he fails iv if. lie will disappoint only
the optimistic. If he succeeds In it to the ex
tent Which lie seems (o anticipate, he will liiuke,
lor himself a splendid and lasting name in Rus
>iai. history.
The problems before him connected with po
lice administration, the courts, the censorship
of the press, Finland aud what not are enough
to tax the ability of the most competent states
man; but. in addition, there ire others of a
most urgent nature, specially raised by the
war with Japan. There is widespread indus
trial distress of such magnitude that the Min
istry of the Interior is sure to be called upon
for relief. Thus, in Warsaw, we are told, the
drafting of men for the war has left fully one
hundred thousand persons destitute of support.
In Nljni -Novgorod the Zerastv.i estimates that
as long as the war lasts it. will have to expend
at least $225,000 a year in assisting the families
Of men who have been sent to the war, ami as

Nljnl-Novgorod is only one of ninny province*
from which soldiers have bean drawn, and it in
not the most populous of them. If It- oeeda of

inces and of. the whole of Russia -when the
whole army shall have been called out— lt i

Uussiu's success in foreign war is largely de

or general discontent and disaffection would be
disastrous. it would never do to have the Rus
sian people jay the Little Father war* (tending

families to starve. So the new Minister of the
Interior will Lave to contend with the depart
ments of the army and navy for a share of
the public money to relieve the distress which
the war la causing. The more money is glron
to them to enlarge their operations, the more he
will need to make good the losses they are cans-

There now recurs the yeurly "scare*' over ty
phoid fever. Accounts of the state of affairs
differ. According to some, the prevalence of
the itlnraar and its — llgnllj are Increasing far
beyond ordinary limi<«.. mo thnt a znive epidemic
Is threatened, while others insist that affaire are
no worse than it Is ukuhl for them to Im? at this
time of year, and that the situation is uot at all
meimeinjf. What seems certain is that there are
many cases of typhoid, sufficient to make it
worth while for the authorities to pay especial
attention to it, as they are doing, nnd to lake
measures for its suppression and prevention, as
they nre also doing, and doubtless will l>e nble
to do effectually: for. crave malady as it Is.
typhoid is of all diseases one of the most amen
able to prophylactic measures, and one of the
niowt inexcusable for a civilized community to
What also is certain is this that it cannot be
Raid too strongly or ton confidently that New-
York Is not, and Is in no danger of becoming, n
fever stricken city. There are no conditions
here making possible a general outbreak of ty
phoid or giving rational cause for alarm to resi
dents nnd visitors. No person need hesitate to
com* tn New- York on sanitary grounds. Our
Health Department is alert and enercetic. nnd.
despite all the mismanagement of construction
works In the Cretan Valley, the healthfulness of
our water supply is abovo challenge or sub
pii-lon. The fact is that the number of typhoid
cases at this time of year, when all circum
stances are considered, is a tribute to, rather
than an impeachment of. the city's salubrity;
for it is, we believe, a fact susceptible of literal
demonstration that the great majority of them
are of external origin. People go Into the coun
try for the summer or for a vacation, and there
Imbibe into their systems the germs of the dis
ease, which begin to develop about the time of
their return to the city. Thnt Is tbe experience
of many every year. That is why we have in
New-York what seems almost, like a mild epi
demic of typhoid every year at the «"nd of sum
mer and beginning of fall.
While thus the primary responsibility for the
disease rests upon other communities, the re
sponsibility of dealing with It rests upon New-
York as one of the alien burdens the metropolis
must bear. Thnt \n one of the penalties of urban
greatness. Our hospitals and sanatorium s and
dispensaries are thronged with non- residents,
who come hither from all parts of the hind for
healing. It Is In one sense an imposition upon
New-York, and it la something that unduly
swells the death rate of the city; yet it Is some
thing that New-York must endure, and which.
Indeed, it Is proud to endure with tbe ample
generosity characteristic of tills city. The
knowledge that we are suffering from a number
Of imported €»s*• of typhoid, therefore, will
nwre the health officers of the city not onU *>
extra exertions to isolate and stamp out «nca
sporadic examples of the disease, but also to
make and keep our own supplies of water and
milk entirely above suspicion. If people con
tract typhoid elsewhere and come hero with 1
we shall do our best to cure them. We shall
certainly make sure that nobody shall contract
the disease here.

A Painful Obituary.— lt is always sad to see the
taking off of a strong, valuable life in Its early
vlnor If the untimely end is due. .either wholly
or in' part to the use of tobacco and alcohol, we
naturally feel still more sorry to sea such an un
worthy snipping out of a useful and potentially
great life. We note that Noah Raby, of Eaton
town X J recently died, and under circumstances
that 'make his death particularly sad. Mr. Itaby.
according to his own statements, which seem to
be Dretty well confirmed, was but 126 years old.
and there can be little doubt that his untimely
death was di:<? to his consumption of liquor during
13) years of that time. He was a constant user of
alcoholic beverages and tobacco, anil had It not
been for th* deadly effect of these poisons upon
his strong and vigorous system. Mr. Rahy might
have lived to a good old age. Too bad!— (California

The water placed in goblet, bowl or cup
Changes Its form to its receptacle;
And so our plastic souls take various shapes
And characters of good or 111. to fit
The good or evil In the friends we choose.

And let your special love be given to those

That drives you ever to fair Wisdom's goal.

A Chinese newspaper published at Shanghai gives
the following reasons why Russia has so for been
defeated by Japan: The Emperor was deceived by
his advisers and their bragging; the commanders
had made no war plan; the Ambassador In Toklo
failed to give his government sufficient notice of
the Japanese preparations for war; corruption In
the army and navy; adulteration of food and am
munition; Quarrels among the officers: failure of
the press to enlighten the public as to ths tree
state of affairs.
