«i«'Uf<uix*<*d the attempt to supervise and

by the legislature and appoints by the
Governor and which favorvd ;i return to

that 'the Parker-Shoehan influence"
was asain in evidence at this year's
convention, and it evidently got what it
wanted in « platform demanding "rea
sonableness" in regulation and a candi
date anas stood two years ago for a
method of regulation which means tv
regulation st all.
In his speech accepting the Repub
lican nomination for Governor Mr.
Stimson heartily approved the public
service law, with its amendments bring
ing the gas and electric light companies
under effective state control, and quoted
(be testimony of the president of the
New York Central Railroad to the effect
that 'the influence and the "co-operation
"of these commissions [the two state
••commissions] have been uniformly
"beneficial to the road, and have done
"much to improve the service for the
"public." la Mr. Dix going to continue to
advocate a return to' the inefficient regu
lation of the past? In enacting the pub
lic service laws the Republican party in
this state made an Important contribu
tion to sound and progressive legisla
tion. Does Mr. Dix still want to turn
back the hands of progress? Will he
stand pat on the platform of 100S and,
if he is elected, nerve notice on the
Public Service commissions that they
must ire-?
It is a gratifying evidence of the prog*
ress which has been made in dealing
with quarantinable diseases that the ap
pearance of cholera cases on vessels ar
riving at this port has not created any
general alarm. When h few cholera
cases were discovered in the fall of ISP- 1
on vessels arriving here from Europe
there was something like a panic. The
state government hurriedly acquired the
old Fire Island Hotel and used it as ■
quarantine station for hundreds of pas
sengers who had been exposed to con
tagion. There was Insufficient confidence
in the machinery provided for keeping
out disease, and for two or three weeks
New York was genuinely, though perhaps
unnecessarily, concerned about its safety.
Since 1592 great changes have oc
curred. The quarantine service at this
port has been brought to The highest
point of efficiency. Better methods of
d^alinr with suspects have been devised
and scientiSc knowledge of formerly baf
fling maladies like yellow fever, cholera
and the plague has been broadened. The
federal government has reorganized and
enlarged its Public Health Service and
has at its command ■ trained force to
fight imponed diseases in their initial
stages. Co-operation l»etween the nation
and the states has been secured, agents
are on the lookout all over the world
for the appearance of contagious diseases,
and the quarantine officers at all Ameri
can ports are .kept duly informed. Since
the reorganization of the federal bureau
there has been as serious invasion of
the T'nited States by yellow fever,
cholera or any other danserous disorder.
The intelligence and vigilance of the
health authorities can be depended upon
to bar out disease.
Relievers in omens, fatalities and coin
cidences will be en<:-ouraged by the tragic
occurrence in PorTuzal. The first King
Manuel four hundred years a=ro raised
his kingdom to perhaps its most splendid
estate, but marred his reisn with abom*
Lnable cruelties. The second King Manuel
has been one Of the most amiable and
l<enevolent of monarchs. but there is
dancer that his line will end with him
in a series of tragedies. Less than three
years ago the young Duke of Beja was
unexpected ly summoned to the Throne
over the mutilated corpses of his father
and elder brother. Only the other day
he entennined The President of Brazil,
celebrated the centenary of Busaco, ac
cepted The Ci 'mail Emperor's invitation
for ■ state visit to Berlin in December,
and was at last, as he hoped, emerging
from the oppressive gloom of the tragedy
n f jpa<v To-day he is a refugee, or sit
the merer of revohuionists who demand
the expulsion of the dynasty, the aboli
tion of The monarchy :md the establish
ment of a bosttai bin republic.
There n*»ed be no uncertainty as to th»
causes of the revolution. For years the
kingdom was misgoverned and plundered
by polirical rincs. the grimly misnamed
Regeneradores and Progre-sistas main
taining a compact >t Lisbon whereby
they alternates in office und°r the "rota
tivismo" system, and pursued ■ con
sistent policy of doing as little for the
good of the country and of stealing as
much public money Bad running the na
tion us deeply into deb: as it was DOS
sible lor ingenious and pertinacious
human rascality to do. The dictator
ship of Mr. Franco Interrupted this sys
tem for a time, but the murder of King
Carlos ended his authority, and despite
innumerable good promises the old sys
tem has since that time been steadily
resuming control, to the mingled exas
peration «nd despair of those of the
people who have anything like an in
telligent opinion concerning governmental
affairs. When the other day a rep
resentative of one of the old parties
murdered :i leader of the reformers, the
limit of endurance was passed and the
signal for the long impending revolution
was given-
It is significant of the changed aspect
of affairs in Euroi»e that the first
thought is not of intervention. Time
was. not beyond tbe memory of liviuir
men. when nucb an occurrence would
have been the pignal for au taaaVCbing
of monarchical armies from other lands
to crush the popular uprising. France
thus sent an army into Spain, and Rus
sia gladly aided Austria in suppressing
Hungarian aspirations toward freedom.
But nothing of that sort i- likely to bap
pen now. Republican France will iiot
Interfere with rising republicanism in
the Iberian Peninsula, and monarchical
Spain will scarcely venture to bend an
jirujy ast« Portugal leal the next morn
ing should see urgent need of Its recall
to quell a republican revolution at home.
Portugal's !»est friend and practical ally
is <ireat Britain, whom* interests hi that
country are paramount, and it is nat
ural that British ships should hasten

interests, much Si our own ships went

Is not an inspiring candidate Bar rapejs
licanisai. The Republican party >
nuinwoiiti and has Intelligent leaders,
vhnw capacity t<*r efficient leadership Is
yet to be demonstrated. Mr. Machado,
the titular head of the party, was once
a university professor st Coimhra and
also a member of the House of Peers,
a good and wise man. with no known
force of authority, Mr. Junqueiro is .-.
man of high ability, but ■ dreamer of
dreams. Dr. Braga Is a fine scholar, but
sadly lacking in balance Moreover, the
party is divided into two factions, the
Moderates and the Extremists', and be
tween them there is more animosity
than co-operation or sympathy. Destruc
tive criticism hns been plentiful, there
has been ground for ir and it has been
largely successful. Hut the present need
is for constructive statesmanship, if
which the existence or even the assured
promise is yet to be disclosed.
In recommendinsr the policy of Joint
party notion in reflecting justice? of the
Supreme Court who have served, ac
ceptably, whether they have been pre
viously elected or merely appointed by
the Governor to fill vacancies, we men
tioned the difficulties which have
hitherto hindered co-operation in New
Tork County, constituting the Ist Judi
cial District. Tammany Hall has never
shown much desire to take judicial elec
tions out of partisan politics, and has
seldom been willing to co-operate with
the anti-Tammany forces in making
nominations "ii a non-partisan basis.
We hope, however, that the practice
elsewhere will be soon extended to this
district, and we should be glad to see a
onion this year on Justice Edward B.
Whitney, now serving under an appoint
ment from Governor Hngnes. Mr. Whit
ney is an independent Democrat, and if.
Tammany Hall renominates him there is
no reason why the other parties should
not support him. He has made ■ good
Governor Hughes leaves office a great
Governor, to become, unless public ex
pectations are sorely disappointed, a
great judge. Recognition of his extraor
dinary qualifications for the Supreme
bench and of the peculiar fitness of his
appointment has been universal. No
doubt he will be extremely happy in his
new career. The public certainly hopes
that he will be. The practice of his
profession always appealed to him more
than political life, and doubtless service
on the bench will be still more con
genial. His preference of his new place
to The gains that were open to him on
a return to his profession was a line ex
ample of his habitual attitude toward
the duty of public service. But be will
have his reward for whatever sacrifice
he has made in the dignity of hie office
and in the congeniality of bis career.
He retires from the governorship in
the enjoyment of a quiet but none the
less complete triumph. The Republican
party has just dismissed from their
places of authority those who opposed
him and thwarted him. defeating some
of the policies in which he was most
deeply interested, end has placed his
friends and supporters in charge »of its
destinies, pledgiuc itself to carry out his
ideas and be true to his principles. And
observers at Rochester testify that his
influence made itself felt also in the
Democratic party, which, though oppos
ing his progressive ideas in the Legislat
ure, found itself compelled to accept
some of them In its platform. Both
parries are committed without reserve to
direct primaries, so that his defeat of
last winter is sure to be followed in
Borne sense by an ultimate victory. And
the influence of his example is accepted
not only in this state but all over the
country, the Democratic candidate for
Governor in New Jersey, for instance,
having just declared his intention, if
elected, of following the Hughes method
of bringing the pressure of public opin
ion to bear ion the Legislature.
Mr. HugJ ■ most Important Bervice
to the country has been to raise the
tone of political life. He has been an
inspiration to Rood "citizenship. He set
up new moral standard* In polities and
showed that they were practicable He
entered office with old-fashioned notions
of right and wrong and proved they
could be lived up to. ■'■ showed the
uffdlrstmrrr of many long established
surrenders to expediency. '"What they
regard as political wisdom." bo once said
of "practical*! politicians, "often strikes
me as puerility/ 1 He saw — • than
they did. They thought that parties
were made strong by the effective use if
patronage and the pervice of the "in
terests" with campaign funds at their
disposal. He perceived that parties
were strong according as they served
the public. His Ideal was service of
the public with sincle minded devotion.
He knew no other allegiance. His prin
ciples were not new. Morality never is
new. What was new was the "strength
of will with which he lived up to them
and the skill Vith which he made his
position clear to the public and inspired
it with his vision of efficiency in admin
istration and devotion to the service of
the people Hi« conduct in office fur
nished moral inspiration to the people
of the suite Men are not so ready to
day as they used to be to reconcile them
selves to the evils of polities by saying
that they are inevitable.
But though the Inspiration which he
gave to good citizenship was his greatest
service, the Governor was not merely a
moral leader. The Public Service com
missions legislation, which has become
a model for other states, was largely the
Governor's own work and is illustrative
of his Insight Into social, political and
economic conditions and of his power
as a constructive statesman. Other im
port ant reforms of his administration, of
which the improvement of state banking
regulation, the conservation of the state's
water powers and the employers 1 liability
legislation are perhaps the best examples,
were Initiated by him and were the work
of his appointees. He found the state
with its governmental machinery ill
adapted to meet modern conditions, and
he leaves It in the front rank of the
sanely progressive states.
Probably the last important act of Mr.
Hughes as Governor was his acceptance
>.i the resignation of James S. \\'l Ipple.
the Forest, Fish sad Game Commis
sioner^ and his appointment of H. Leroy
Austin, one of the tovestigatars Into the
administration of the state forests, to
succeed him. Mr. Austin's appointment
is a guarantee ol reform ■ the depart
ment. He is familiar with abases and
is put into office to end them. The in
vestigation and the reorganization which
follow* ii art* an example of the thor
oughness with which the Republican
party is cleaning its own house. The in
quiry was begun by a Republican Gov
ernor under the general authority given
to him by the Legislature two or three
year* ago. It was prosecuted relent
leasiy, witbout the slightest disposition
to spare any Republican, no matter bow
high his station, and a thoroughgoing
reform will follow its conclusion, It is

The abuses in the administration of
the forest iaud^have been those of in
efficiency Bad mismanagement ratner
than of corruption. Some of Mr «n I
p]«.-s work, accordinj: to ''-^™ or
Huches's letter accepting the < omnaw
sinners resi-natiou. has been commend
ed by those interested in fore* conser
vation, and he appears to have l»een
penuinely in sympathy v.ith the protec
tion of the state's resources, hut be cer
tainly lacked executive capacity ana
was unfortunate in the choice of his
subordinates, while his financial rela
tions made it virtually impossible for
him to jruard the state's interests as he
should have guarded them. His borrow
ing from men who bad lands to sell to
the state was grossly improper, as WM
also his borrowing from special counsel
employed by his department. Mr.
Whipple testified that his financial obli
gations to Ostrander. the land specu
lator, did not influence him in his offi
cial capacity. But th? fact remained
that Ostrander was exceptionally suc
cessful in disposing of lands to the
state, and at higher prices than were
paid to other purchasers. As to the
prices paid for lands acquired in gen
eral, .the .investigators are of the opinion
thai they were excessive. Presumably,
therefore. Ostrander was overpaid for
his. For whatever favoritism was
shown to Ostrander. however. Mr. Whip
pie was not alone responsible, the
acquisition of lands being a function of
the State Forest Purchasing Board,
which has two other members besides
the Forest. Fish and Game Commis
Besides the favoritism that was dis
ciosed in the purchase of lands, the
worst revelation ajrain^t Mr. Whipples
administration is the utter inefficiency
of its legal department in the prosecu
tion of violations of the forest and jrame
laws. Since the effectiveness qf the
state's protection of its forests and of
vriid pa me depends upon the vipor with
which the laws for their protection are
enforced, ir was here that the failure
of Mr. Whlpple was at its worst. Favor
>ir, doabtjess accounted for much of
the law department's inactivity. But in
addition there appear to have been
habitual neglect and indifference to duty
in the prosecution of cases such as could
uot have failed to attract the unfavor
able attention of any efficient executive.

To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: I read a letter in your paper to-day
headed "To Look After Central Park,
signed -U J. TV.." stating that Central
Park was worth J1.000.000.1/X) and that. from
a business point of view, it ought to have
the care and consideration That property of
such value would receive, and that If the
property of a private corporation were so
mismanaged and neglected the sharenold
ers would go to court and ask to have a
receiver appointed. I think this suggestion
is timely and appropriate.
T recall that a year or two ago water
pipes were laid all through Central Park
below fit* street, at a cost of about »M»
so that the greens, shrubs and trees could
be watered when there was a dry spell.
During the unusual drouth of this summer
and fall I besought the park authorities to
turn on the water, and they replied they
had no hope l said. "Get some, by ail
means" ; but it. has never been procured.
One poor tree near the Sixth avenue and
59th street entrance so appealed to me with
its withered leaves one hot afternoon in
August that I procured a man to get a
bucket of water from the pond and pour
around it. I saw after-ward many trees in
similar condition. I was present at a din
ner given for the Park Commissioner short
ly after his appointment, and at which
Jacob H. Schlff said that Mr Stover had
induced him to provide money to build a
drinking fountain In a thickly populated
part of the East Side, that he had done so
and the drinking fountain had been finished
several years before, but the water had
never been turned on Now that Mr.
Stover was a Park Commissioner, Mr.
Befell! said he hoped th* water would be
turned on. 6. M. J.

To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: Will you permit me to make a very
earnest appeal in The New- York Tribune
in behalf oi the building fund for an Eng
lish church in Munich? The need of better
accommodation becomes more pressing
every year. This year it has been very
sorely felt. I nave received letters, spon
taneously written and Inclosing donations.
expressing the need in the strongest terms.
One. dated August 2, 1310, states:
'"I inclose 'hi»ck toward the building fond
of the proposed new Anglican church in
Munich. I feel it is ■ reflection on our
church that in an important town like
Munich there should be only a room for
divine service."
The Bishop nf North inn Ontra] Europe.
"I very heartily commend the effort ttat
i.=- being made to build an Anclican church
in the important city of Munich. What we
need in the capital of Bavaria is a church
that in style of architecture and in form
ot" Bervice shall be worthy both of cur
Church and nation."
Munich If the only European capital
which does not posses? an Anglican church.
But it is independent of that fact that we
make our appeal. The church hi a practical
want, keenly felt. During the last twelve
months the present accommodation has
proved so inadequate thai worshippers
have repeatedly been compelled to i-rand
through the whole service.
In view of the fact that the building of
an English church in Munich has been con
templated, but delayed for want of funds.
for some year?, may I submit the following
facts' to prove how urgent the need Is?
The. number of communicants on Christmas
Day last was 74, en Easter Day 10). Ascen
sion Day 32, and on Whitsunday I2L
We have nearly a),(M marks In hand for
the proposed church, and the city authori
ties have promised a site free of charge.
We still require over £1,000; or $5,000. It
has been arranged that the Annual Con
ference of Continental Chaplains shall be
held in Munich ;n May next, under the
presidency of the Bishop, who at the same
time will be able, we very earnestly hope,
to lay the foundation stone of th«» new
church. We believe that we can rely with
confidence upon the generous support of
our countrymen who ha', visited us from
all parts of the world for the realization of
our hopes.
Subscriptions and donations should be
sent to the Colonial and Continental
Church Society. No. » Serjeants' Inn. Fleet
street. London, E. C or to myself. Checks
