Next "The Times" quotes from the
Democratic national plarfcrms of ' s>
and IS7U to show that th«» Democratic
party helped rather than hindered the
resumption of apct*i» % payments. Ihe
Democrats iv 1572 merely Indorsed the
Liberal Republican ' platform be that
year, which demanded a speedy return
to Fpeeie payments. ' The country was
not then able to resume specie pay

;rrcs!« passed, obj January i i, 187.">. a re
sumption law. setting January 1. IS7O,
as the date for resumption, tho Demo
cratic party attacked the law. and in its
national platform of 1876 denounced the
resumption act as a hindrance to a re
turn to the specie basis. The Demo
crats of the South and West took no
interest whatsoever in resumption, and
the platform averred That "reform"' —
meaning Democratic administration
was far more important than coin#
back toi the use of hard money. Wit':
its usual ineptitude the party favored
something when the time for it <■•■ not
ripe and opposed it when it was ready
to bo accomplished.
"The Times" find* it a little difficult
i to arrrue that the Democratic party was
! also the reliance of the country in 1596
i and 1900, when it sought to force on the
i Treasury the free and unlimited coinage
jof silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. Our
: Connecticut friend says that a Kepub
; Mean Congress passed the Sherman sil
j ver purchase act of ISOO. So it dl'!.d 1 '!. but
! only as an expedient to forestall free
j coinage, for which three-fourths of the
' Democrats in the House and Senate and
la small minority of the Republicans in
j those bodies were clamoring. Yet even
iße injreni'Mis an apologist as "The
j Times" will hardly co the length of
claiming that the Democratic party, not
| the Republican, was the reliance of th:
<v>!intry in the struggle of 1896 to avert
silver monometallism and maintain the
public credit. Judge Parker himself
could not afford in 1001 to stand for

| have also been shamelessly extravagant;
! yet since ISM the amount per family
raised in the city by the tax rate has mi
i creased about 28 per cent, In the me

parks and streets, something at least to
I show for our money. The cost of the

Why resort •- thl? misleading com

with the cost of state government in
tho oth'*r? "Why not tate the amount

the co*t of government in both cases?
The amount raised by the tax rate for

the year of Its Srst budget, 189 S. The i
j city budget for IS9S was $77,473,084 77. ;
j The city budget for 1010 was $163430.
27037, art Increase of more than 110:
per cent Now, the increase in state ex
penditures in the same period is shown j
by The following figures: State expend- 1
[tares, 1898, $23,837.24523; state appro- j
priations, 1910, $39.1»J-224 2G, an In

expenses Increased ll<~> per cent the
S state's increased G6.
And the increase is due, as "The !
: World's" own figures show, chiefly io
the state's taking over the care of the
insane from the local authorities, to the
i provision of modern highways, to the ■
! retaliation of public service corpora- j
! tions, i<» the supplying ,of adequate
i s<-b<«iK to the state's effort to promote

Our neighbor "The World" calls for
the defeat Of Grady, whom Tammany has
just re.nominated for the state Senate.
]« hat. been doing the same thing annu
ally for several years, but Grady's admir
ing constituents continue sending him
bad: to Albany, and probably will do »o
again this year. And Grady's admiring
constituents arc right. Grady is a man
whom the Democratic party delights to
honor. Why should not his constituents
also delight to honor him? Ho has the
stamp of high approval. Year after year
the Democracy of the stale chooses
Grady to be its leader in th«» state Sen
ate, and it will doubtless do so again
this year. .
But perhaps you hare no respect for
the stamp of approval which the De
mocracy of the state sets upon Grady.
Then look at this other stamp of ap
proval, which not even the best and most
virtuous Democrats venture to question
—we refer to the approval of Sir. Dtx*e
Democratic League, that refuge for the
conscience of the party. When Mr. Dix &
league needed a spokesman in the Legis
lature it chose Grady. When it had
bills to propose it intrusted them to
Grady. When it wanted its Murphyized
direct nominations measure introduced
it caused Grady to introduce it. Why
should Grady's admiring constituents
pay any attention to "The World" when
it knows of Mr. Dixs little league's ap
proval of its beloved candidate? The
league will need its chosen spokesman
at Albany next winter. If these atttacks
on him continue we have no doubt it
will "take appropriate action."
Borough President George MeAneny it
to be congratulated upon the savings
which his businesslike administration of
his office iKi^ effected. Out of last
years budget he was able to save about
£400.000. though most of this had to be
spent upon important work lor which
provision had not been made in the bud
get. 'ii his estimates for the coming
year, despite the tendency of the cost of
city government to advance, Mr. Mc-
Aneny has been able to keep well below
th* budget of last year.
Out of a total of $3,735458 in last
year's budget Mr. McAueny cuts $961,699,
more than I.': per cent. He proposes,
however, that some extra provision be
made for asphalt repairs and repairs
upon public buildings, which be thinks it
will i,« economy to make now. If this is
allowed, his estimate will still be 6.1 per
cent below the budget of 1910.
The Borough President has found the
chief extravagance to be where it was
generally supposed to be. The salary
list will be ?215,07S lower this year than
that provided for 1910. The allowance
for hired teams and carts will be nearly
a third less, while that for fuel will be
40 per cent less. Supernumeraries and
idlers drawing salaries nd waste In the
purchase of supplies tell the story. The
Borough President's economies are ■
model for other municipal administra
tors to follow.
The census figures for Vermont show
:t larger ratio of gain for that state than
had been generally expected. Bone of
the Vermont newspapers seemed ready
to credit rumors In circulation a month
ago that an actual loss in population
would be disclosed. Bui the Census Bu
reau torts that the number of inhab
itants In 1910 is 355^50— a gain of
12.31." for the decade. The percentage ■''
increase is 3.6. That, though small, ex
ceeds the percentage for the decade from
1890 to 1900, which was 3.4, and the per
centages for the two next preceding dec
ades, which were one-tenth of 1 per
cent and one-half of l per cent re
spectively. An Increase of 12,315 bulk?
largo in :i stale whose population has
been nearly stationary '" sixty years.
The average decennial expansion be
tween 1830 and 19QG was less than
0,000. The largest advance, both posi
tive and relative, which Vermont has
ever mad- 'd population in a single dec
ade was between 1790 and 1800, when
It gained 69,040 Inhabit! i
The sturdy mountain commonwealth
has few cities and has been slow to de
relfip manufacturing: it i- an agricult
ural region, wit bout great wealth, but
also without poverty. Its people are
prosperous and contented the con
ditions under which they live. Lack of
expansion In copulation has not meant
decay or retrogression. I' hat simply
signified that the state has lain outside
the path of industrial progress and ha«
gone along in its own way dealing with
conditions of life which have not
changed greatly since th*» years of
the Republic.
Vermont ii' threatened with no loss of
political power under ii' xt years fed
oral rcijpportionnjent. It has two Eepre
sentatlves, one scat >» Ing allotted for a
major fraction of a ratio amounting to
151,459, only 12.723 short of the full
ratio. Even if the ratio of representa
tion is increa-'-'l from 194.152 to 215,000,
Vermont, with 355,950 inhabitants, will
still have Tone ratio a/d i- sale major
fraction. The Ktate has had two Bcpre-
Kcntatives since 1880. It had three be
tween 1850 and 18S0, four between 1840
and 1850, live between 1820 and IS 10,
six between 1810 and 1820, four between
1800 and 1810 and two under the cen
sus of i?B0. In political power, there
fore, i! hi's simply returned of late ? "

Albanians for many years have not been

be in blood and tongue, in creed they are
divided into three pretty strongly antag

outbreak is said to have occurred, are
many Roman Catholics; in the centre
are Mahometans, and in the Berrth are
Greek Catholics. We must await further
information before assuming that there
is unity of action by all three, and of
course if the outbreak is confined to the
Roman Catholic north there is little dan

has been planning an expedition to the
Antarctic regions, has apparently se
cured the money he needs lor the pur

start next spring. His progress will be
watched with much interest for two
reasons, one of which ie that his route
is yet untried. He hopes to make a
landing on the shores of Weddell Sea,
an extension of the South Atlantic, al
most directly opposite Captain Scott's
base on Ross Sea. Moreover, a friendly
agreement with the British explorer has
been reached which provides that if the
two expeditions meet near the centre of
the Antarctic continent each shall send
a delegation back with the other. Such
co-operation between rivals in polar
work is extraordinary, ii not unique.

New York, Oct. 10, ll»10.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: In The Tribune of this morning 1
find publication cf a letter from Mr. Bolton
Hall to the Synod or New York. In this
communication Mr. Hall, while- indicating
most clearly thai lie has the welfare of las
fellow men at heart, shows also that he
has not given to every statement he makes
that cartful consideration one is led to ex
pect from a lawyer, for he makes reference
to "heretical bodies like the Christian
Scientists, who deny the miracles."
It Is somewhat surprising that Mr. Hail
should have fallen Into the too common
error of making positive assertions without
duo familiarity with the facts. It is not
beyond the scope of historical remembrance
eince Mr. Hall's own faith waa branded as
heretical by the orthodoxy of Rome and
Unglani:. According to the dictionary,
heresy is "an error of opinlcn respecting
son:*-- fundamental doctrine of religion."
and in the I'sht of that definition Mr. Hall
will. I am sure, have seass conscientious
difficulty in applying: th© term when he
makes hinucif familiar with the tenets of
the Christian Science Church.
As to th« question of a denial of th«
miracles, there ma: be some Question, de
pendent upon an exact definition of th*
word. If br miracle is meant - positive
violation of an established natural law,
then Christian Science dee* deny the mira
lea ar, rather, that Interpretation si
them. If, on the other lad, miracle is to
be defined M "a wonder," in accordance
with its rearing In the original Greek, then
Christian Science does not deny the mira
cle?. Upon this point Mrs. Mary Baker
Eddy gias expressed herself on Pa?« U of
the prrfac« to '"Science and Health." the
Christian Science textbook: "Now, ns then,
these mighty works are not supernatural,
but supremely natural." To Christian
Scientists a miracle In a natural marvel,
and to quote Huxley along thai line, "if a
thing has ever happened it happened in ac
cordance with pome law or principle— even
if unknown or misunderstood— and can
happen again."
Thua Christian Scientists do not deny tho
miracle* If by tho««> miracles arc meant
such marvels as the raising of Lazarus
from the dead, or Mm healing of the sick,
but, on the contrary, they are dally prov
ing In many hundred* of instances that
theae wonders am Indeed not supernatural
and far off, but supremely "natural, 'and th«
"result of a. divine influence ever present
in liummi consciousness" (Ibid, Pref., xl).
For Mr. Hull's somewhat grBMBgBBg dec
laration that the Christian Hclence Church
Is crowing rapidly all Christian Scientists
will thank him for Ma truth, and for Mi
enlightenment it may bo stated that there
is a new Christian Bcienc* church being
