It may easily destroy the men who set it off.1 Arbitration cannot fail to help them if their cause is ju-t. Too much hesitation will equal confession. Everybody Satisfied. Judge Seabury, that "anti Tammany" Democrat- who on more than one occasion i has received Tammany support, has ln effect been nominated as the Democrat;: candidate for Governor at Mr. Murphy'.-.: Saratoga direct primary. Judge Seabury was the choice of the "independent" Democrat >, therefore this must bfl hailtd as | great victory for the "better i?le ment" of Dcmocracy. which not 80 very, :4*taa- aga was -roing to oust Murphy. and made several atlempts. with leaders rang ing fr..m Mr. Conmrs. of Buffalo, to Mr. William Church Olborn, of Dutchflfla County and New York. Judge Seabury, that is, has been foreed on Murphy to ju.-t the extent that Mr. John A. Dix wn forced on that capable politician Tbe net result is that Democracy ha-. a candidate for Oovernoi oatentati woar.ng the tag of independence instead of Murpbyiam, and Mr. Murphy and his .1 Bociatea hav? tbe real of the jobi on the tieket. That suits both. It will al Murphy that no particular responsibili'y: for electing Juclgc Seabury can devolve on him and his organization, in thii year when Tammany men are declaril g the eondud of the national campaign "ha*. relieved the Democratic organization of this state of all re.-ponsibility in the earn i>aign thia fall." If |fr. Wilson and the "independent-" like this lay-out, there musl be, for once, ?i genuinely harmonioua Democracy in this atate. The Channel Tunnel Again. Those who in former times advocated the construction of a tunnel across the Straits of Dover have found iii the prefl ent war a suitable occasion to revive the projeci and to fortify it with many argu-j ments hitherto uiulreamed of. A fortnight gjBjO ? number of Krench and English en gineera, railway managera and Iflgialatoral dined together al tha House of Commona and discussed the problem at length, all apparently agreeing thal the objectiona of a quarter of a century ago were n<> longer valid. The French gueata w/i re less urgeni in their appeal than the othera, because. as1 If. Yves c.uyot aaid, though all of hia eoon trymi-n hoped for a Channel tunnel and believed it to ba most da I they felt it was a question for Knglishmen to decidfl and had DO desire to OBfl the present alliance as a means of bringing pressure to bear on them. One of the j.rincipal technica! speakers pronoimccd the on ginacring problem oomparativaly aimple. i There was an excellent BUbflOil of white chalk, into which there had been infiltra of mud, and from numerous BOUndinga it had been pretty well established that then- was an uninterrupted bed of "that beautiful, ideal material" all the way acrosa. Other apeakera dwell on the im? mense impetus that would be impartad to trade by the building of a tunnel, ar.d all belittled thfl objections current when a wlflCt committee of the Lorda aml Corn mona nndertook to eonsider thfl matter thirty years ago and decided that the KhflVBfl was "not exp<'dient." There are a good many people. however, wh<> remember that military opinion was .at that time overwhelmingly oppoaed to tlie undei taking. and it will not bfl Uflfy them that the arguments then advanced are wholly irrelevant to-da\. \\ laelfly, Robarta and Kitchener all re garded it as a miataken propoaad; the Dukel of Ca^nbridge, at thal time thfl field mar shal commanding ln chief, apoke atrongly Bgainal it; Admiral Sir Cooper Key. Ad? miral Sif John Hay and moat af the lead? ing naval authorflies af the time werCj among thOflfl who opposed it. Admiral, Sir AJgernon d? Horaey raealla some ofl their obflervatlona on the occasion. The I?uke of Cambridfa, ratnarking that Q 'many "migiit wish to puniafa our alliance with France by thfl aflisure of D i wrote: "I wish to record my opinion, an opinion shared by the abk-st of our officers. that our only p irity ran be found in foUowing the example of our neighbors by creatinj** a vhm army like theirs, an army which would probably MltflJJ tbfl necessity of a com? pulsory sy.-tem of universal military service." The an.-vier may bfl that that 8* has already been established and that the taking of Calaie is not so simple an enter pli t as the Germans .upposed it to be. But thc possibilities <.f suirprine must bo, fiikcn into BCCOUnt, and on this head the' late I,oi d .Wo]ifllfly :aid: "To assert that no such operation nti a surprise ean be clTocfed without our ohtalning anplfl ararning of it is t<> assume that thc general Charged with its aei-iiniplishnient is as entirely ignorant of the buailMM of war hs the man must bc who makes .*ueh an a** Miniption." Oppoaitioa to the projeet seenrs to hnve wrafcrnfld, yet if tho reasons then ndvaneed were sound it is dillieult t<> see how they, can bc t-ttorly disregnrded to-day, when thc i*.ilation of (ireat Britain is less com? plete than it was thirty years ago.

But, for thc sake of a mysterimis past. begun nobody knows ju*t where on thc baek of the world somewhere twixt Kast and West, wc have consented to pay a certain perfunctory, romantic re.*pcet to thc children of this lost and v.-ry dirty, tribe.

But now science is triuniphing a bcnevolcnt fungUS has been diseovered on the roots whieh ean exist only in a BOUT SOil, and thus planted, with the aid of selection aml grafting, marvel lous bushes have been achieved.
