If judicial salaries in this «*ity are inadequate, there are proper and deceut ways of bringing their in adequacy to the public attention and rectifying that .iMiditiou. but the way chosen was neither proper nor decent. 4.1// MMI \l SEEDED. There seems hardly any reason to question the test of the legality of a combination laid down in the Staud-ird oil decision— namely, that it is illegal if it* necessary effect is directly and aaaV> ptsntlally to restrict free competition in interstate trade. The Sherman act ap jH-ar* to W fairly explicit, aud this was in all probability its intent. But it may lie doubted whether fciuli a restriction ujkhi the freedom of business organiza tion Is required by public opinion to day. The competition from the suiM't^aakaa or restriction of which the Standard Oil Company is enjoined U petition cmong the Mil^iJiaries it <■ rolled. nothing betec «aid in the decision about the efforts of the trust to lupprtssl com jH-titiou by independents. Thus within the BMaatßg of that test of legality any ccmbination which unites two or more rivals, thus ending competition between them, if In this process it substantially restrict!* competition in interstate trade, is illegal. It makes no difference what the effects of this restriction are. whether beneficial or otherwise. ,v- Judge Hook remarked in his opinion: "Nor can arguments of reduced price "ot product, economy in operation und "the like have weight." There i- BO dis tinct iuii in the law V.weea a good trust and a bad trust. If a combination were « -erected to inouojKilize an industry for the sole purpose «>f reducing prices to the public it would htill »(i|<«rvutly l»e illegal. If that i* the meaning of the Sherman act — nnd it appears to l»e — we do n<>t Ih' licve It represents the present public altitude toward industrial uinii- Tims. We set* no such hostility to unions lietween previous comp«-titors as would Ik- implied by the doctrine that argu ments alK»ut <-<-onotnles ad reduction in prices to be .-.■■.■■,■ have no weight. In the public mind we believe th.>se argument* have the ino^t weight. We doubt if tho people .re attached to the competitive principle per *c and are determined t>» maintain it at any cost. The question which they ask a!»ont a new combination i* bow it la going la uff«*ct them. The objection is not to the union of two competitors in itself, but o the use of the power which that union jives to exploit the pobUe.

The t-ittiation mrpest^ the need of an amendment of the Sherman n-t which will ;rive weight to arguments about the l-eneiits <.f v combination or the reverse.

That will I** bCCSQSO UIC I'ojm" and the French bishops have indi <-at«Hl 3t as tbe issue on which the Cler icals and KoyaliMs will mnke their lijiht. «!i<l l^i-aa^p it now wem* certain that tlie Depnblicasa have no <-ause to shrink from it. but. on the contrary, may well regard it :js the issue most ace»'ptable to then. It ha* !«c"n charged by Mr. Eusrcne , Taverr.jer. wh.» nates the case for the j lion <"atholi.' .:ir«h with authority i Mid force, that the present w«-ulariza tion of the schools of Fran«f is the out come nf the *'lepr::d of the achoolmas* j tor" whi<h arose a cen«T.ition a«ro. After j the war of I^'>; it was indeed commonly ; «iid that the liatlle of Sadowa bad Ikh-h | won by «;.-ruiau whoolmasters. and a j lew years later the Kuccesses of <Jer ; man arms and the disasters of France \ won- attributed to the contrast between j tb'* educational systems of the two eoun- I trie-, and esjxvially to the secularism j r.f the Gentain and tho cl«Ticali-ui of the Trench cchoo!.*. Therefore the idea I arose, or was fcedulousJr propagated, that the welfare of the republic de. : laaaaVd ayaaj th. secularization of the tcb'M.ls. und a vigorous movement was . onraniz«J to that end. Mr. TavernJcr and the Clerical* ccu • orally hold that this was a delusion or j a deception Mid was part of a deeply ; laid conspiracy of fr«-e thinkers. Jews i laid Freemasons against the Christian ' n ■Jam. on the other hand, it has been \ Cedared that Caarleal teaching In lav : f;chools was really royalist or iinj..-nal ; is: teacbin-, and that In eupprcssing it : the republic was KlmpJy suppressing se dition. It will occur to most observers I that s*me color l* given to this charge j at the present time by the ©ix-nly an- I nounccd coalition brtwwn tho Clericals : and the monarchists for the coming I campaign. Mr. Uriand now tells the Clericals that I they "enjoy the fullest llticrty of belief ! "and worship, and the rlerpy never had i "freer exercise- of their prerogatives. j "The, reparation of Church and Slate i "has given the clergy liberty which i •they never enjoyed N'fore." To this the Clericals ply that Just sa Mr. Ferry in 1579 eaid to them: "Tea. hlnic by the "relljrious orders, reduced to legitimate "proportions, will Mill continue. You "have complete and absolute liberty. ' " You can found as many denominational "wbools an you like." And yet, they jxiint out, *!nce then the denominational bcbocls hay» lx-«:n abolished and the teaching orders hare been expelled or enppressrd. Of conr«e, the Jlcpnbllcan NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 21. Vm. rejoinder i* that the latter abased their liberty and exceeded the "legitimate proi>ortions" of whirl: Mr. Ferry »pok<\ The ulirnifli-aiit feature of the cn*e l«, however, that not only radical anti-Cler icalists like Mr. P.riaiiii and Mr. Clemcn ccau but equally conscrvatlvo Kepnb lican«. of temperate disi' ion and moderate polieh»<«, Mirh r- Ir. itilHit, earnestly an.l irreversibly - ipport th« Fecular bcbool sysfiu. It is. Indeed, well known that a larse part of the Most devout liOman Catholics of France cordially approve the reparation of Church and .-tatc ami the secularization of i'-hti.m. They aer«H> with Mr. Mhat that "the lay school is a necessity of "our time, an honor to the republic and "an essential instrument of procrc?s and "civilization." It will be appropriate and, we doubt not profitable, to have that proposition submitted to the judg ment of the nation. OYSTER -rATTEXIi Some agitation of mind has been caused in New Jersey by a report «l rullnp of the United States Pure Food Commission arainst the "fattenlns" of oysters, or at least against the ship ment and sale of such oysters iv Inter state commerce; and there are those who Fay that execution of the order will mean the destruction of four-fifths of the oyster Industry of the Mate. It is the practice of some dealers to take the oysters from their Ix-ds in the tidal bays and lay them down for I tbort time in fresh or partly fresh water at the mouth of ■ .reek. As ■ result the oysters are whitened and bloated, and in that condition they are fch!pi>ed to market. It is supposed that they sell more readily and for higher price* than they would in their natural pray color, and. of coarse, rt daai not take »-• many of them t<» measure a quart after they are bloated. Whether the federal authorities are rijriit in regarding this. as "adultera tion." need nut be discussed here. The question will be authoritatively disposed of in due time. Sanitarians will, how ever. observe that n» better way of in fecting: ayatan with typhoid fever could well l>e devised than by thus lay in; them down at the mouth <«f a stream which if an open sewer for towns Baal cities, while consumers should not ne»-d t<» Ite reminded that it destroys the natu ral flavor. We arc glad to say that this foolish and harmful practice is b-ss com mon than it was a few years ap>. THE AEROPLXSE MARKET. The fellow countrymen of the Wright brothers will bo:.- with satisfaction the preparations beiuj; made fat the manu facture of aeroplanes at I 'avion. If anybody is to make money out of that industry no one else has so p,...,l a right as the men who were the first to fly with heavier-than-air machines. Others besan exi»erimeut.s long before the Wrights did, but for one reason or an other they abandoned effort before achieving complete success. II was the neraai of •■ Dayton inventors when every one else had apparently Mopped Thar demonstrated the feasibil ity of flight with a different type, of airship from the dirigible balloon. Bat for the influence of the Wrights" exam ple it is doubtful if Id this country or in Europe any one else would have used or tried to improve the aeroplane. A part of the demand for Wright ma chines no doubt will be Inspired by mere curiosity and ■ love of novel sport. ludulgeu<-e Of such a whim will lie rather dangerous, but jit the Wright company intends t<> train norienji In the art of handling aeroplane* it may be that no more accidents of a serious character will result from gee of the new vehicle than from use of automo biles. The bobby win be expensive, aix». ■ad it would not be surprising if most of the purchasers soon tired of their lieu toy. One of til"' business ;t> hociates of the Wrightu ha- stigg«-ste;l that aeroplanes may be employ**] in carry mails In remote i>arts of ihe conn* try arbeve suitabk' wuir.-n rujids do not exist and hataaxlraani rehldeS cannot h«« us**]. A small bod] of letters would not overload Jin airship, but tho cost of tho service uiiglit bo jirnliibitive. As f«.<r a general fivislit and passous»T busiu«>K«. thai is out of the question, so lar as we rtl now tec The public will await with inten^t th«» decision of the court* rrcardltn; tbe preefse anfM of the Wrisbt patenta The principle m «rh!cn a patent is granted in tho United States is "priority of invention."

We may dismiss as of nothing .mire than sentimental or historical Interest the latest plan, put forward by Mr. l*n durrapa, ■ Chilian engineer, for solv ing th«» ace-long " secret of th,. strait" through the coustruction of an itiier ocaaiilr canal by way of the Atrato Iliver. It is risible that the Colombian government may pranl a concession lor such a work, ab it did at least once be fore. r.:n v•■ creatly doubt if "German and British capitalists" have expressed a willineness to build such a canal, and It i- sate to feel confident that it will not be built. Troui the Bcntimeutal and historical IX)iut of view, however, the project ]ws ****** much Interest. That route was one of the earliest over considered* for a •maul, and when I'hilip II maile his famous decree forbidding anj attouipt at caiml buildlu;; anywhere ou the isthmus he esj»eelallT Blu^led out the Atrato rej»ion for most emphatic pro hibition. Already in his time the legend of Jbe etrait had taken form, and leg* after, in 174.':. Alceda. Governor of Panama, declared that the strait exist ed and that in 1070 the passage from M-a to tea «uk effected by "the arvh 'liirates John <;uartem. Edward Blonmr "and Dartholomew Charles." In lTT'.t a I'rench pilot reported to his government that the rait existed, and In mo it was said that a chip's t»oat had trav elled it. Huniuoldt heard of it and credited the. tale, only then It was an artificial «-anal which it monk had caused to be> cut, in the Ravine of Uas padura, "by means of which, when "rains are abundant, canoes ... : with "cacao cau pats from oca to eea. This "communication," ha added, "has ex "isted since ITsS. unknown to Europe." The legrud was pretty well disposed of in the lSso*a\ when Frederick Kelly, of this city, sent four expeditious thither, and President Buchanan sent a government party on the aanie errand. Again in IS7I Commander i?elfridge ami in 1*7:; lieutenant Collins were sent not to seek the non-existent strait but to see if the place was promising for a canal. Close after them, in 1874. came Antony de flogorza, who Invested the region with by far its greatest In terest. He revived the legend of tin* strait, declaring that he himself had made the passage in itM with two companions, one of whom had unfortu nately died and Hal other had disap peared, and he* himself had forgotten lM»th their names! On the strength of this remarkable tale ha got a conces sion from the Colombian government for the construction of a canal. With that he went to Paris aad worked upon the imaginations of the "Oki Imperial ists." especially Leaaepa, Wyse and Turr, to such ■ decree that Wyse. Rectos and others came otw to investigate the mat ter. They found Gogorza's strait tnjn «xisteut, but then turned their attention to Panama, with the result that Lea> seps's enterprise, to which we have now succeeded, was begun. £o that phantom "strait which had its origin in Columbus's misunderstand big of an Indian tale iv Honduras, actually served to lend many men on, through four centuries, to the practical under la which is now being pushed to completion at Panama.
