All tho propress that has heen made townr.l hottor government bare h:is re* sultod from tho work of anti-Tammany administra tions. The elevation of public itandarda of decent city government due to tho administrations of May.rs Strong and Low and Mayor Gaynor and his fusion aaaodataa on tho Board of Battanata and ap j.ortlonnH'iit has been remarkablo. Tammany if re? turned to power could never po back to tho spirit of Van Wyek and his kind. But at no tlme before the present has the anti-Tammany movement had an opportunity tO make its doepost impression. This tlme there will bo elghl years of contlnuoiis ofTort for pood gorernment The present administration eiiters oAce thorouphly famillar with tho clty's busi noss and its probloins. In four years more lt should bo able to work such a change In popular ldeals of elty administration that a return to Tam? many will ho impossible. Dismissed Policemen Must Stay Dismissed. The rofusal of tho Appcllato Dlvision of the ?Supreme Court tO order the reinstatonioiit Of ex Inapector Bayea and of the oft-dlamleaed Patrol man Hyland will be hallad with roliof by all who hope to aaa aa affacttre police organhmtlon bullt up in thla 'ily. Hayos deserved the dlsinissal he eourted*. not only for insubordinatlon, but for lax police work. Hyland. whose plicht was made into a tost ofise. was one of a number of mon dis uiissed by Commissioner Cropsey for nffonces raupinp from conduct nnbecomlng an ofiicer to possession of a criminal record ond nnsstatoments ln applications fbf examination. His reinstatement by Waldo was held by the Corporation Counsel to have been improper, so he was thrown out apain. One of tho chlef troublos with tho PoUce De? partment has been the refusal of policemen to Btay distnisM-d. It has seemed at times as if the courta had gooa out of thoir way to reinstate dis? missed poUeaaaw on technleatltlaa. Thej havo apparently taken the view that a mombership in the force. once hold. boeame a vostod right, to be ovorthrown only at the poril of all the institutions of the Kepuhlic Naturally discipline has siiffen-d, and the city has suffered iu eonsequenoe.

The campaipn to raiso $4,000,000 for the Younp Women's Christian Association and the Younp Men's Christian Association in thls city has orpani zation and it has power behind it. Its methods will I,.- as thoroiiph as they will bo improssive. The suni to be raised is enonaotM and the time in which lt is to be rnisod is short. but just because the sum is onornious and thi tlme is short the campaipn is likeiy tO b? successful. There is a preat advertisitip value ln euma ln sovon figures. But tbe campalgn will be a success f?>r othor rea sons besides its strikinp and effeetlve methods. Its cause ls one of the best. There are no institutions |0 which the public will pive more wlllihply thnn to the Young Women's and Younp Men's Christian as soeiations.

Onal liritain tuny or may not offlcially participate in tbe Panama raciiic Exposition, though we rather expe<-t that she will, and it is quite certain that hor uijofti.ia! roprosentation there will l>e very larpe.

Throughout the entire shlppinp industry of the United Klupdom the chief activity is exerted ln the dlrectiou of prepar ing for Panama. Tbat is as it should be. Kor while the effect of the canal upon roniinoTce and trade inutes ia still matter for spoculation, there is every roason to ex pect it to be enormous.
