Never has tbe campaign of a candi? date lor the Goveruorship collapsed more cooapletelj than thal of Mr. Bul aer. His aoppoiiwa have been for tho must part shumed lmo silenee by the icandidute's innbllity lo nieet the evi dences of his Tninmanyisrn with any thing better than a parade of agjotam. "The Neaa York World" baa nol bbbb tioiied his naiue on Its editorial page in a coupie of weeks. "The New York Times" did print one oditorial aiH ?%ve can recall no tnoro?ln Ma favor j within a fortnlgbt Jt probably re> Jpeuu now of having printed lhat one, for it served to l.rlng out the exact language in which Mr. Bulaer as chalr? man of the AsseiJibly Ju.liciary Com? mittee enproved Maynardlatn. Waa taera gvgt b candidate wboea gnpportera abowed so pbiinly a deslra ;to wash their hands of himV They an dlsgusted with tba Bttenpt to make him aqaani with thelr own profeeslona of ojip?'.sitioii tO Mur;i)iy. ,-ind sb'k of his chikUsb vaolty and liis t'ailure to , perceive ariy^liiuc: more ln the nomina? tion for the Uovernorship than food for his agolsm. It is dlfflcnlt to -up port for a high publlc office a little Jack Borner aort of candidate, who does nothlng luit "stlek in his thomb "and pull out a pltim and aay, 'What "a good boy am i '" And what a good boy is Bulaer! Only twanty-aomething?whatever it a when he was made Bpeaker! "Yoting fst Bpeaker" there gvac was! Abae lutely the youngeat! Marvelloua boy! The state has "never had the audaclty to ropeal" any laws thal be caojaad 1 i ba ennc-ted. Think of that! Never! Not even one! And be vvas only to ihe twepUga! And the nation. too. has T.ever repealed any of h'i% laws. And ba is vtiii yoang. fonngeal CongTeea man who baa ever sat ln the national halls of leglalatlorj for a aeore of years, we don'l care arhat the eyclopedlaa of Mograph] may aay 10 tbe eontrary. Little Jgek Ifornera never grotr old. Ba may ba odt of the twentlea now. but his eampalgn apeechea don't ahow lt. Wonderfnl record! Nelther nation Dor stato baa ever had the audaclty to fepeal a Bolzer law. No aronder every one shouid "point to the rlae and eareer of wiiiiam Bnhmr." His anpportera may find it ? bore. : Buf so would the eklera of Little Jack Jlorner have found hiru an lntolerable l little fool. Btrl fortunately there arere no elders ln Mother <;o.?o lnnd; other 1 wise the adltorla] pafga there aronld have been a frownlng hlank gbool the jpulling out of the plum. What a plty j Mother Oooae eharaeters shouid atray jcnt of the magic preciiiets of eterual lyouth: SINOULAR AND PLURAL. The gyrost-opical candidate for Pres rldent complains that peoi?le don't un iderstand the principle on which he ? rotates. He told voterp in Newark, N. J.. on Tagadaj that the only thing !hla rrltics hare to do "to know Gov *'ernor Wilaona positinn r.n tlie tariff "ia to read and comprehehd the F'nc: ??Jgh lanfuage." H" the Governor had used the language more amirately he vould have snid that only a knowl ,gdge of Bngltab w-ns reqtiired to know ?fV.s vlews on the tariff. Posltion ls gflagnlar, but viewg are plural. 0?r ernor YVilson's poaition on the taritf Is not n poaition at all, varytng aceording to iatitude and longitude. But he has most fellcitously exi)ressed as many dlfTerent rlawa as there are pop-il.le points of view. He has boxed the oompass and travelled around the cir cle. and what he has said ln the Union Square Chamber of Tnrlff Boirora ln this City is as fnr apart from what he has aald in Plttsburgh and Philadel pMa as the NOffth Pole is from the Si?ith Pole or longitude 00 degrees areat from ' mgitude fH? degrees easf. The people who have hnd trouhle ln undervtandine his "posit:on" have sim ply not been able to keep up with Gov? ernor V'ilson's spci-d as a rotator. His yersatllity baa embarrassed them, aud they have baan aatanlahad to nnd him ajeetaiing one day that the afotacttva gystem ls an odioua and oppresslve fraud, bannlng everybodj affactad by lt, and the next day that lt ls all right ln esw-ntials and needs only to be cleflred of its excres'enees and barna cles and re tored t > tta pristlne vlgor. It is a little hard for paraoaa with a fixevl i>oint of view. either frlendly to protection or boattle to it. t? adjuat thenaaelvea to Qovarnof WOooo'B gyra tlons and to racognlgg with him the advisablllty of maklng one's "position" ajwaya nt tba pr'-possessions of oue'a aadttora. "The New York Stin," which is aup porting Mr. Wilson, cannot overlook tbe humorotis poasiblllties of his "p<ikI tlon" on the tariff. It said the other day: If Dr. Wil?on haa any preciae. defl nite, hard and faat bleaa about tariff Jegialation he baa yet to communlc-ate them . Almoat anythlng can be proved by paaaagea frvm tho doctor'a apeeches.

A BUBY HERRING. Mayor Oaynor tins got his red ber ring out and is dlMgently using it on the poliee trall. In tbe evenblg at a cbnrcb and the next dny to minlatera at the city Hall?that is keeptng the red herrlng busy. His position now is that. of course. there was grnft. It would not have surprised him if lt bad been n poliee inspector instend of a mere lleutenant who had been traf iicking ln protection. But there is ttO more of it. Oh, denr. no! He has made an investiuation. He has ndopt ed H.vstems that are effective figatnst it. What was a perfectly natural thing Inst summer is now utterly in conceivable, or soon will be. "I was forttinate enough to stop that fthe galoon graft]." he saya. -and this other will all be stnppod." Bnl what is the Mnynr's as?urance that he has stopped the saloonkoppers from ptylng the poliee wortli? Pre cisely as much ng were his assurnnces n few months ngo that he hnd stopped grgft generally, and hie recent asser tions that the sale of pmb'ction. through which Becker was enriching himself, wns lmpossible. He did not know of Becker^ grnfting wlille it was gotng on. Whnt reasnn is there for bellevine tbnt he knows any more of what is pMng on among th* poliee to-day? And what has the Mayor done to revaal any more of the actual condi tlon in the poliee force than the Becker case brought to light? The poliee wlt nesscs Wbo have toid damnglng truths about the department before the alder maulc investigating committee bave been puntshed. Their punishinent has served as a wnrnlug to rucnibers of the force who are will ing to toll the tmda that they must keep quiet if they value their J"bs. The Mayor'a con duct was an aid and comfort to Beck? er. Now it is an aid and com? fort to the other crooks who clearly must be ln the department. No such rottenneaa as the Roaenthal rmirder brought to light could exlst wlthout ex tending far heyond a ntcre lleutenant. A GREAT TITY CONTEST. The fifth trietn l election for ui<'in berj of Borough oundls in London, which takes place to-day. will be in teresting not only becuiiKe it is the largest municipal conteet in the world but also because of the antagonlsm be tweeu orderly reformers on the ono slde and Keml-soclallst revolutlonist^ on the other and of the charagter of tbe ehief issues ou whlch tbe camimign b being fought. There are twenty eight Borough Counclla, with a total of 1.3C2 membere. llithcrto in each of the triennia! perbalei save thal of IflOB-W the Municipal Reformers have c.mtrolled a large majorlty of the 28, ul.lle bl that PJM the Progressives, of socialiatic procllvitieK, had 16 to the Heforruers' 13. In the Counclls whlch are now golng out of exiatence the He formers have 1,004 of the 1,302 inem bers. The Reformers have been apoeallag for support on the record of their ad ministration. TTiey polnt out that they have reduced the average tax rate of the metropolis from 7 ahilllngs 5.4 pence to 7 ahilllngs I pence. nnd at the sHtne time have leaKeued the debt by (1,620,673, or jipiiroxbnately 3 per cent. These are small reductlons, but any re t duction at all in the debt and tnxes of a great city is noteworthy and cn viable. Nor has this been done nt the expense of neglecting publlc worka It b gbown that vlgoroga eanltary adnrin istrntion has reduced tlie death rate ln 10.000 from 1M to 1QQ, that seventy two mlles of electric streot railwavs have been huiit. that onbeelthy areag bave been deared and red^emed, that the moke noieence and ocber evlbj bave been effectiveiy combated, and that a multiplicityof w-.rks luive been porformod for tlie imniedi:ite good of the people. The prograinme of the Heforniers is t.. contbroe the polldee which have prodnced these grntifying reenlta. The Progreeelvea, on the other hand, wblle of conrae eppxovtng wbal bai tbne been done. are deinanding the offlctal rocog nitlon of trade unions and the estab lishnieiit of union wagee, tmiirs and condltiong of labor for all municipal employes: the extension <>f free pnbltc feeding <>i schooi children and rgrlooa siinilar measuros.

The ajipeal Ittned by a large number of prominent lawyers and boalneM men. many of them DemocratB, nrging the roters to support Jndgea Hlacock and Cbaac f<>r tbe Conrl ?>( Appeais justly emphasizes thp soriousnos* of the siruntlon presented by th*? .ludicinl .-iiiitest.

Thanfcg to the broad tnindedness of the Hepubllcans. not wlthstanding their domlnatlon of the state for years. the court 00W gtanda four Democrata to tbree Bepabllcana. The Bepnbllcang bave not even norul nated a new Hepubllcan elnce 19W until now. but have retnined oldjudges Of satlsfnctory servi.-e nnd accepted Democratj for new Jndgea.

Washington dbpatches roport that thirty-two states have notiflod to Sec retary Knox tndt ratlfleatJon <>f the lncome tax amendiiient to the federal (Vmstitution. Two other stales have ratille.i but sent no ofhcial notice. Tbe nuinlier of states whose assent is re quirod to mnke the amendiiient effec tive Is thirty^lx. w> that only two more iipprovals are needed. It is. however, gtretchtng the probabtlttlea to say, as the Washington rei^ort does. that the gjnendment may be ready to be pro cltimed "by .lanuary 1." Veruiont h tbe otilr state whose I.egid.ittire is DOW ln geeetou or will he ltkely to be in ses slon until after January 1. and v*ef mont rejected the amendiiient on Janu? ary 17. 1011, by the rote of both legfc* lattve l.ranches. It is sald tn Washington thal New Hampshire and Utah have repotted r< jecfions to the State Department. That seems to be au error, for lu New Ilamp Hhire one hranch of the I^gisltture has twice voted to ratify and ihe other hus twice refused to nitlfy, and in I'tnh the two hOtJgBg have had a siinilar dif feren-e on a single test. The OtttJ MaJ islatures to reject outrlght were tboai of Vermont, Bhode IsJaud, Connfvtlcut and Massachusetts. But Massuchu setts did not consider the rejeetlon tinul, for ibs Legislature has slnce voted twice on the amendinent, the two houses disagreelng each time. Counting Vennont, Bhode Island and Connectlcut as re.jectors, tberi are aJejrejB statea ln whlch no detinite oe tion elther way has hecn taken. They are DeUware, New Ilanipsliire, M.i--a chusetts. New Jersey. rennsvlvanla. ffeet Vlrglnla, Vlrglnla. Kl<?rida, NiW Mexlco, Wyoming and btah. Delu ware. New Mexlco uud Wyoming have not voted at all. In New Hampahire. Massachusetta. New Jersey. Weat Vlr gluia. Vlrglnla, Florlda and Utah one house haa favored and the othtr op posed ratlflcatlon. In Penimylvania oue house has vobwl yes aud the other has not votexl. Inasmuch as the leelslnt urea in all theae statea except Vlrglnla will meet next winter, lt la probable that the auiendment will secure the. support of the necessary two by the I end of Febraary nnd will become a part of the Constltutlon before the preaant national adminisrratlon ends. One great difference between General Huncock and Oovernor Wilson is that the former had the courage to admit that he believed the tariff to be "a local issue." o A Denver profepsor says that the world would be won>e off lf everybody want to college.
