The Tribune and Governor Sulzer.
The Tribune has received ? number of letters from
Its renden finding fault with Its iittitu?i?? toward
Governor Bolier, YYi? iiiink they have bam written
under h miaconceptioii.
Tba Tribune, unlike "The World..rhe Post ' and
moat of tbe "tiler N"ew Tork paper?, baa not found
Mr. Sulzer guilty. It ili.l n<?t. as th?\v have done,
condemn him unbeard as sonn as Murphy's agents
producad allegad erldenc? of misconduct against
him. it called for his Impeachment wben this evi?
deuce seemed t" warrant Impeachment merely as ?
means of tenting the issue, of thrashing out the
whole matter in public, so that the people could
make up their minds whether the Governor was
guilty or whether the pol?tica] blackmailers who
wer?? att:i< kinK him were manufacturing a case
against him.
The Trihune appreciate? fully the evil character of
Governor Suiter's opponents and it understands the
animus that inspires them. Rut it heileres that pub
He opinion Is competent to pet a just verdict out Of
a eonrt in which judges of the Court of Appeals will
wield an exemplary Influence find In which a two
thirds majority must be had to secure conviction.
As for the argument that the state should keep in
office a ?Jiiverimr who is guilty of criminal offence?
just because he is against Tammany, Tbe Tribune
has do sympathy with it. So good can come from
lowering the public standard? of what is decent and
honorable in public Ufo In fighting "??rruption we
will get nowhere i?y winking Ht corruption In office.
And when w?. say this we do not mean to prejudge
th?? case ?if Governor Sulzer or lie taken as privately
believing him guilty. ? m the contrary, we bave B
perfectly open mind In regard to him. We sincerely
hope for the sake of the credit <>f the state and for
his own s;iko that he will he able to prove himself
innocotit. But if he cannot do s?? t?? the satisfaction
"f honest and fair minded people generally, then we
say that be should be remove?! The Governor'?
chair is no place for a peraonally corrupt man.
As for bis opposition t?> Murphy. The Tribune
applauded it :i> soon as it became definite ;in?i heart?
ily supported him In it. If he clear? himself 'I h?
Tribune will take pleasure in continuing t?> support
bim in it. And hi no way can be deal such a blow
to Tammany a? by clearing himself.
But if he fails ??, clear blmaelf we do not sec that
the i? 111 i -Tammany cause will be irreparably ?lam
aged.as some of our readers appear to think, by Mi
removal. If is bigger than any one man It existed
before Mr. Butser cam? Into office if will go on
after be Is out of office, if be Is to be removed 90
mi with renewed for??* because Of Ihe revelatbm of
Tammanyism th.-it this scandal is bringing forth.
When trill the st-itc trust Murphy b> sel?'?-t another
Governor. When ha? Tammany appeared more
hateful than II doe? now. with the present laying
bare of its motive? in Impeaching ? Governor, not
beeause he is corrupt, but because be stands in the
way of its graft?
An escaped Lunatic at Large.
It I? perfectly true, t? all the lecal expert? hasten
to declare, that Thaw cannot be extradited as an
escaped lunatic, though he may be. nevertheless,
upon a Crimina] charge connected with his escape.
But what state or what nation will (are to harbor
him? New York State has not confined him to
punish him, but to protect itself fron one who in -i
moment of lunatic frenzy shot and kl!l???l a man and
who was sure to have recurrences of his mania.
What community will want this homicida] degen?
erate in its midst? Reetralnt in an asylum may
have put him into good health, but now that he is
free he win return to the perverted practice? of
debuuebery, hi? nerves aril] be shattered :in?i his
reason will give way. Any stale or country ?rill
leave him free ,if its peril.
Our own country will not admit insane immi?
grants. Are foreign countries hospitahlo to them
when their Insanity is as notorious as Thaw's!
And will any stab? bo m, foolhardy as to allow
him to remain at large within lis borden witIk.iit
first compelling him t?-? prove his sanity. Much is
made of the instance of Mr. Cbaloner, who escaped
from an asylum in this star?? and now realdes In
Virginia. Hut Mr. (haloner first, we think, had to
_et 1 Judgment from a court in Virginia that he
was sane. And. moreover, he liad not shown fh.it
he was dangerOM to society by committing a honii

That is ;i thought which must .-iris.? In every reflec?

it is to i>o hoped that that thought ?ill be coupled

Kut it must have the eo-opamtloa of the public in
