One surprising result of the election was the cloa_a.Bg of tba votes ln this Ftate for Sul/.er an.l Wilson. Governor Wilson raeatrad <'47,ir>6 votes m:rl Mr. iSulzer recelved _00,11& Thall plurali? ties were. for Governor Wilson, '-'"?'. 863; for Mr. Sulzer, 206,670. Thus they ^ere only 3.000 apart on the popuhir roie and only 1,000 ap.'irt iu plurali? ties. More4?ver, this close equallty exlsts ln Ppite of the fact that one can? didate wns a Tammany man. the repre aentatlve of a party wbaa_ adiulnis tratlon of the state had been scan dalously dlsappointing, while the other was free from that weaknoss, and also ln splte of the fact that they were on eeparate ballots. With the separate ballots the prentor weakness of Mr. Sulzer as a candidate would have been expected to show It uelf. Yet apparently tha support of the two Democratic candidates was sub etantlaliy the same. There was, no doubt, some splitting of votes, but it ?was almost exactly balanml between the candidates, and substantially every one who had made up bls mind to vote the Democratic ticket vnted the whole of it without discrimination. In fact less di8criminatlon was exercised wlth the separate ballots and separate mark ing required than has usually been Khown tn natlonal elections. It has not been an uncommon thlng in the past for a guc-ggg-l-i candidate for Governor in New York to run from 50,000 to 7.V?oo behind the gu_LBB__-l candidate i.i- President on the same ticket, though lt was ewrt to rota for both by a siiurle mark. It was beeause of this common dift'erenee that the Democratic luirty eanaed the present system of separate ballots to be adopted, their cnndJdata f..r Gforarnor usually eom Ing aenrai' to eaiTjrlng the state ln a Praa-dentJaJ yetir than their candidate rorPrea-dent Inylawof theweakness <,f the I?.'iii...'r:itic party under Mur? phy rule it wits predi.ted that lt would suffor from the devlee by which it had BXpectC- to benefit. Bvt no effect can be u_a_rr_d. Kvidcntly the dispo?ith>n to vote stralght cannot be overcome merely by compellinc B voter to make two mnrks instead of one. As a sovereign remedy for undiscrimlnatinj; and uninttdliizent votlng the separate ballot seems to have been overrated. ANTI-TYPHOID MEASURES. The proposal of the Health Depart? ment of this city to provlde free inoo ulatlon, not "vacdnatlon." wlth antl typhoid sertim, not "vacclne," to all who desire lt marks an lnterestina; and promlslng new step in the generally jndlclous and efficlent campalsm which that department of the municipal gov? ernment ls conducting for the puhlie good. It ls not an entlre novelty. for the work has already been undertaken ln a few other communltles; but New York will be one of the flrst cities, and the flrst large city, to adopt the sys? tem. The practlce will not be ln any respect compulsory, and it will be of Interest to observe how many people take advantace of lt voluntarily to se cure for themselvcs practical immu rdty agalnst one of the most inlschiev ous of all human allment.s. There Is abundant ground for an tidpatlng favorable raaultg from the practlce. The first extenslve trial of lt was made more than ten years ago ln the Brltlsh army in the Boer War. There, among B?_7_ men who were inoe ulated. there were 121 cases of typhold, wlth 3 deaths; while among 0.010 men simllarly siruated but not inoculated there were 1*7 cases and 2(5 deaths. That rei?ord aaj regarded as convinc lng, and lnoculation ls now practised tlirouuhout the British army. In the I'nlted States army it was long ago made opti'.nril, nnd lt was made com? pulsory for all men under forty-flve years of age at the tlme of the mass tag of tha troops near the Mexican IT4.ntier. witli hiL'hly cratif\imr results. It may ba addad that ln ad.lition to preyentive inwulatlon there is a siini lar treatnieiit for the cure of persons already nfllicted with the dise:ise. How successful this has been is indicattil by the statistlcs of the bospitals of Parla. There Professor fhatitemesse at the Bast-OO Hoopttai, in six years admlnistered serum to lyOOO tyjihoid Iintlents, of whom 43, or 4.3 per cent. dled. In the same perlod the otlier bospitals treatad without lnoculation 5,621 patients. of whom M\ or 17 pi-r cent, dled. While, howeyer. this agathod of deal Ing witli typhoid is t<? be hopefully re? garded. It is still better to take ef ferilve mcaaarag for nverting danger of litfwtlon wltb typhold garuiB by pr.. tact-Dg food and drink from contamlna tion. How well this ?in be done w.-is lllUHtraf(>d by the .Jap.-mese army dur? ing the Buselan w:ir. Before thut time arnib's ln the field had been accus toined, as a matter of course, to loslng more men from B-Ck-MBNB, mostly from epidemlcs of communii-able dlReases, thnn from wounds; and typhold alone. which was always ono of tho wor.*t of camp dlaaaaaa, frequently killed more mon than foll in butllo. Hot of the 600,000 mon in tho Japanese army only l.'J-l por cont dlod from cominunienble fllnniffa. nnd lo an army of lOO.iXK) the n- wore ln slx months only 35 case3 Of typhoid; while in the Brltlsh army ln Se.nth Afrie*a, which dld not take the pnvaiitions which the Japnnese adopt e-d, 81,000 wore invalldod home with tbat disease. The flrst line of defence should thoroforo be to keop sewace out of water and flles off food. The second should t,o to filter, boil or otherwls,* sti-rilizo suspocted water and food. Tho third may well be inoculatlon. Within those three lines no case of typhoid should be able to penotrate. IN THE FAMILY. GrOrentOf Dix is in some respeets a fortonata man. And he is clearly n rallflooa one. He keeps in mind the Scrlpturnl injunction: "But lf nny pro "vlde not for hls own, and specially "for those of hls own house, ho hath "donted the faith, and ls worse than "nn inildol." Most men in tho GfOT** ornor's chalr when they had high of fioes to fill would flnd it necessary to ]<?,k far and wide in search of quali fied experts. Governor Hughes, when he wanted an expert on traftic for the Publlc Servlce Commlssion, had to ?end to the Intorstnte Comiueroe Com nilsslon for one. When he wanted a State Historian he had to go to l uni renrtj to flnd a man of the reqiiired Irainlng. But Governor Dix is in net tor liiok. Ha cnn flnd ln hls own fam? lly and business circle qualiticatlons for any post. Thereby he sorves the state and exercises thnt most porfect of all charlty whleh begins at home. When he needed an Historian all he had to do was to pick up a nelghbor and fellow trust company director, whose emlnent fltness would have been overlooked by any body else. Another trust company assoclate was Just tbe man the state wanted, and but for hlm would have missed. for a Superinten dent of Banks. When he had to retlre from the state committee he bad hls own business parrner available to keep hls party in the right path, and when there waR a vacancy in the Publlc Servioe Commission he did not have to look abroead, for he was well assured that there could be no man more fit for the job than that same Mr. Hup puch. Now that the Dix wall paper business requires Mr. Huppuch's at? tention the state ls saved from irrep arablo loss in hls retlrement through the Govemor's jxessession of a conven? lent brother in-law. He ls ready for all emergencles. The Confederates used to say of General Sherman that there was no use in desrroying rail? road tunnels in front of blm because he carried duplicate tunnels in hls equiptnent. So with Governor Dix; vacancles are no trouble. He always has relatlves or business partners at command. Brother-in-law Douglas is a modest man, and he never let anybody out sido the famlly know of his fltness for this oflice. Probably no outaider ever ?suspected lt. Hls faralllarity wlth lumber barges and the schooner trafflc of Albany is perhaps known to some extent, but his expert knowledge of railroad affairs had not been under stood, and no other Governor would have been likoly to light upon hlm. Tho state is therefore fortunnte In havlng Governor Dix still ln offlce to make the dlscovery. It ls also fortu nate in the Governor's superlorlty to nppenranoes. Washington would not nppoint a nephew to a high offlce whleh others thought he deserved, and rightly, as was proved when the next /idminlstratlon appolnted hlm to sorve for more than a quarter of a century as one of the most revered Justices of the Supreme Court Washington was ?wrong and Governor Dix Ir right. Tle rises euperlor to complalnta of nepotism. Mr. Sulzer may perhnps feel the sltu? ation embarrassing. He must accept the brother-in-law and nominate hlm to the Senate. or in turnlng hlm down seem to be disoourteons to his prede cessor and blind to snperlor merit. But even if he does want the place for somebody else he should reflect thnt the Dlx famlly has had a "raw deal" from Murphy and that lt ought to be allowed to save *?oraetblng from the ?wreck of Its hopes. BALKAN MAP MAKING. The probabillty, which ls almost a certninty, that the Balkan war will restdt ln some important changes of national boundnry lines has naturally set the speculative map makers to work wlth zest and lngenulty. The ohief difflculty ln the problem of trans forn^pg the map of that part of Eu rope Ir ln the inextrlcable commlngling of races, creeds, tongues and historlc olalms. It would be impossible to divide Macedonia alone, not to men tion other lands, on lines of race, eraad, lansruage or historlc tltle through former soverelgnty. The best that can be done ls to make the apportlonment aecordlng to majoritles, but whether that will prove -entlrely and perma nontly sntisfactory Is a matter of doubt. One particularly well lnformed au thoriry thinks thnt Servia wlll take half of Novibaznr, as far as the Llm River, and Old Sorvla?meanlng ohiefly the vilayet of Kossovo. Montenegro wlll tnke the rest of Novibazar nnd the Mallssori country almost to Janina, whie-h means the vilayet of Scutarl and parts of Monnstir and Janina. Qraaea wlll have southweRtem Mace? donia and "all of Eplrus," which would menn the rest of Monastlr and Janina, and would apparently overlap eonsld orably upon Montonegro's shnre. Bul? garia Is to have the eastern part of Mneedonia. There ls left a central strip of Macedonia. the Vardar Valley. which it ls suggested may go to Sor? vla. glvlng her an outlet to the sea, provlded that Austrla-Hungary assents -that being the road to Salonlca whie-h Au6trla-Hungary has long cov eted. How far this plan falls short of re storlng historlc boundarles may be soon when wo reinember that the old Servlan Empire, which endural for more than two centuries and which had aclvillzntion compnrable with that of the most advanced Europtefin states, comprised practically all of Albania. Kpirus and Macedonia, nearly all of Bulgaria and more than half of Aus trla-Hungary. The Bulgarian Emplre. which preeeded the Servlan, renched from the Black Sea to tba Adriati*' and from Thessaly to Po.and, and bad at Preslav a capital which rivallod Constantinople Itself, its clvlllzation. aecotdi-C to Glbbon. rankins wlth tho best ln Europe. Of course. any full restoratlon of such sovereignties is now impossible, but the questlon h how far lt ls possible to go ln that dlrectlon. The chief obstncle to a satls faetorj adjustment ls doobUaoo in tho attitude of Austria-Humrary. That power is apparently resolvod to troat Servia as Russla treated Poland. By selzlng the Servlan provinces of Bos nia and Herzogovlna she has preveute<l Sorvla from roachlng the sea In that dlrectlon and from regalnlng an Uopor tant part of her old ilonialn. aud now she ls trying to prevent Servia from taking any part of Novibazar or Al? bania. which would raenn that she could not reach the sea in that dlrec? tlon and. indeed. could oot ndd to her territory at all. But Um Balkan map may be remade by tho Balkan powors without outslde dlctatlon. RED CROSS IN THE BALKANS. The appeal of the Amerto-an Red Cross for aid in mlnlstoring to the Kiifrerors from the war in tho Balkans, whleh we published yesterday, un doubtedly does not exnggorate ihe se rlooaoeai of conditions there. A wln? ter war nnywhere is partlcularly try? ing, and even with the most parfod equlpment great hardshlps would be inovitnble. But the Bnlkan winter is severe. and on both sides the armies are wofully lacklng in the means of transportatlon, in food and ln moelleal supplies. Moreover, the contest has already becomo feroclous ln eharacter. Itaclal and rellglous blftcniesa may lead to outbreaks of savagory, and there can be no doubt of the obllcntle.n of the civillzed world to take pronipt nieasures to care for the wounded and sirk on both sldes nnd preparo to meet any eall of humanity which may arise from this culmlnatlon of the Iga-IO-f struggle between Chrisfinn and Mos? lem. The American Red Cross, owing to our distance from the scene of con? flict, wlsely refralns from sendlng ex pedltlons to the front. Thnt bT-OCh of the work Is attended to by the r.uro penn organlzatlons. But the AflMrt* canR are called on to back up their fellow workers. Aid la raodOFOd lm partlnlly to the coinl.atants e.n !><>th sides, but any porson esivoelally int<T ested ln asslsting elther can di*slgnato the dlrectlon In which his contribinion Fhall be used and his wishes wlll be ob served. It is to be hoped, for the on*.lit of America, that the treasurer, Mr. Jacob H. Sehiff, of No. ,r>2 William Btreet, in this city. wlll be able to re? port llberal glfta from our country to this work for humanity. THE COST OF NAVIES. The manner in whleh Great Brltiiln ls Beeking to malntain tho "two power standard" in her navy is indieate.1 ln a Parllamontnry return whleh has just heon made, and which also (oddootallj throws some suggestivo llght upon our own naval polley. The demand has been that Great Brltain shall koe>p nor navy equal ln strongth to those e>f any other two powers BOttad tho Cnlted States belng generally ennitted from the reckonlng. That would naturally mean that Great Brltain must spond as mueh yearly on her navy as any other two powors put together; anel that, if the Cnlted States he left out, sho ap? pear* to be dolng. Thus ln IM3-1I the chief naval powors are speuding for all naval purposos tho following sums : Great Brltain.$225,377,00,) Germany . 113,047,700 France . 90,411710 Russla . SS,406,o,'i5 Japan . 47.I09.0SS Italy . 42.K37.62r, Austrla-Hungary . _9.1.,fi?,K40 Unlted States. 132.700.096 Great Brltain ls thus sponding mueh more than any other two powers with America omitted, and prnctlcally twlce as mueh ns her DOOnat e-nmpotltor, wlth the same omission. The-so flgarea do not, however, for obvlous roasons provlde a measure of aetunl lneroase of naval strength. More to the porpoaa are those of the approprlations for now construction, whleh show daddedly dlfferent comparisons. Onilttlng Italy. whose figures are not DOW avallahlo, these approprlations are as follows: Great Brltain.JS6.3r,7,635 Germany . -7,465,9.15 France . 84,9X7,910 Russla . 34,146,600 Austrla-Hungary . IR,125,000 Jnpan . 16.44K.98r. Unlted States. 24,990,726 These latter figures show that Ger? many is spendlng far more for new shlps, proportionatoly to her whole bud get, than Great Brltain anel that Great Britaln ls sponding considorably lOOa for construction than oithor Germany and France or Germany nnd Russla, whlle she fnlls far short of sponding twlce as mueh as Germany. Of marked Interest to Amerlcans wiii be the fact that of all natlons we are sponditi;. proportionntely to the whole naval budget by far the loast for new shijis. We are spendlng ,r*0 per cent more on our navy than Russla on hers, yet Russla ls spendlng 37 per ceut more for new shlps than we. nnd whlle we are spendlng nearly ono-sixth more on our navy than Germany. Germany de votes more than twlce as much as we do to new construction. In these cases a part of the explanation ls that Rus sia'fl chief naval work Just now is the bulldlng of new shlps, and that Ger? many also ls stralninjr every nerve and sacrlflcing everything else to lneroase the number of her ships, whlle she has fewer navy yards to malntain and a much ahorter const line to look after. It ls well known that all classes of men ln our navy get mueh better pay than those of other countrles, which Amerlcans will not begrudge. Nor will thoughtful men object to our greater expenditures foraramunitlon for target practice, seeing that thus our "men I ehind the guns" are made the best marksmen ln the world. Nevortheless, the figures whleh we have quoted are full of suggestlon as to what further approprlations will be necessary lf our navy is to be maintained at a sult able relatlre strength.
