No Morn Castle Government for Ireland
It looks as If the British Government
would bo forced 1 by the appalling dlKolosuics
matte In connection with tho CoiiNWAMi
Boandal case to rttvolutloulzo tho Irish ad
mlnltttratlvo system A long stop In this
direction has been taken by tho withdrawal
of the conduct of the prosecutions ordered
from the law officers the Crown In Ireland
and intrusting It to English officials who
cannot bo suspected 1 of complicity in tho
olTenoetj charged O of sympathy with tho
offondors Theu Is now room for hope that
tho sink of Iniquity which a8 Irish reformers
hMo long Insisted exists In Dub In Castle
will bo probed to the bottom anti that the
r abhorrence excited by the rovelatloun will do
S more than any politicill agency to obtain
practical homo rule for Ireland
Since the charge against CORNWALL w
first published tho couiso pursued by the
Irish law nlDcors has justlllcd the GLAD
STONE Ministry in treating them us utterly
unworthy of its confidence Every concolv
able niflnsuie lawful I unlawful was re
sorted t in order to stlllo tho scandal In tho
germ t Intimidate tho ltnrwho had given
tho lat to the world uud lo pro out tho truth
from being brought out on the trial Every
British oflletul connected with Dublin Cas
tle from tho highest to the lowest bcoms t
havo made common cause with tho In
criminated functionary und BO compact anti
formidable a front was presented that oven
BO respectable I man us Mr TKEVBLYAN was
Impose upon and did his best to avert a
rigorous Inquiry by describing tho accusa
tions as calumnies concocted for political
ends That tho Hcretary for Ireland could
have been thus deluded and made tho willing
lug tool of betlulili rots Is I lUelf conclthdvo
proof that tlio Institution of Castlo Govern
ment cannot be reformed by changes In a
few heads of departments but must bo torn
up by tho roots ThoDdtlsh nation will not
tolerate a system tainted with the IIht tin 1
Uuichory from top to bottom and which I 1
not promptly cxtiipated would class tho
Irish capital with thu I Cities of tho 1laln
Heretofoio Englishmen have failed t un
derstand the dotetalloa with which the Coo
tie oflleluls tire ivgniilid by tho Irish people
They have turnid a deaf ear when Irishmen
havo deolaied 1 that thu Executive Depart
ment was tho main engine of oppiesblonam
that the moat wholesome and benignant laws
passed by Parliament would b nullified or
perverted by tho administrative machinery
S In the indifference with which many Irish
man viewed tho shocking and calauiltom
murder CAvnMMMn ali DunKE Etgllih
men RAW a proof of flondUh nmllanttyi
jut two U I roisoii to believe that
tho assassination of OAVCNDMH was a pUle
accident and that In Under Secretory
at tho
HUUCK the conspirators wore striking
incarnation of that permanent official hie
rarchy which all their countrymen consider a
curse to Ireland Now however that tho
curtain Is drawn back and tho lives of many
of tlio highest permanent officials art found
to fairly rook with Infamy It will bo easy t
convince EngllHhmen that fttich offenders
hMo boon guilty also of Injustice and mal
feasance In tho administration of the laws
I Ireland la to bo governed any longer as
nti Integral part ot tho United Kingdom It
will have to b placed on the same footing on
Scotland with respect t Its ftdnilnlitratlvo
mechanism For many years all tho powers
of appointment t executive office In Scotland
and nominally vested In the Crown and
ostensibly exorcised by the Prime Minister
roprcboutlng n Parliamentary majority
mainly composed ot Englishmen have In
practice been delegated t the Scotch mom
hers who have constituted for that purpose
an Informal kind of committee on nomlna
loiw Tho result la that tho execution of the
laws In Scotland line been virtually Intrusted
to functlonarles chosen by tho Scotch people
themselves That Is tho real secret of the
contentment with which Scotchmen In tho
present century havo viewed tho union
with England I Is possible that
If similar administrative methods were tried
long enough In Ireland t allow old enmities
to fade Irishmen also might In time como t
regard with equanimity their connection
with Great Britain This at all event Is
ho one remaining remedy by which a Brit
sh statesman who insists upon upholding
ho Integrity of tho United Kingdom can
lopo t allay Irish disaffection For such an
experiment the time Is ripe for tho subver
sion of tho old system of Castle Government
Is nt last Inevitable Ithos required a scandal
of peculiar enormity to produce such a state
or things but In view ot tho result attained
It must bo acknowledged that tho editor
who laid barn tho shameful truth has ron
tIered a great service to his country
Very Creditable to Air Walei
Mr HALM 1 WALE the Park Com mis
bloncr has done a very sensible thing in
ordering that tho seats in the City Hall Park
bo icbtored to their places Ihoy ought
never to havo been removed ho said amid
accordingly ho took advantage of his tom
lotury opportunity as acting President of
tho Commission to undo tho mistaken work
of Gen VIELE
Whether there are sal In tho park or not
Is looked upon by some people and somo
newspapers as a very small matter but It Is
not that by any means I Is a very im
portant matter and tho Indignant lemon
strance of tho whole publla ought before
low to have compelled tho Park Commis
sioners to restore tho BeaU whoso removal
vasaiilnoxcusabloplecoof inhumanity Such
conduct on tho part of the peoples servants
showed an Indifference t popular wants nnd
loslrcs which was a bad symptom I they
were ready to tako away tha benches to
rt a few men who had softer scats In
ho City Hall thoy showed a disposition
which might lead them to further
mlAht thor unneces
sary with tho comfort of citizens
In the public lark Not long ago It will b
remembered they proposed t remove tho
Central Park menagerie to a beautiful spot
of ground which It would deface because
they expected by so doing t gratify certain
property owners
For very many years seats had been pro
vided for the public in tho City Hall Park u
they are provided In tho parks generally
Tho people havo become accustomed to them
and they grow to be 1 sort of vested right of
the citizens The park too is in a neighbor
hood which Is crowded and which has only
that open Bpaco for the Inhabitants Tho
breath of fresher air they get there Is ex
ceedingly gratoful to thousands of mon and
women and the opportunity for rest after
fatigue which tho scat afforded pedestrians
was always welcome to many of them
That thoro was a demand for the sent was
shown very clearly after they were taken
away Tired men women nnd children throw
themselves on tho borders of tho grass or
took their rest on tho stops of the public
buildings But if not most of
hnlJlljs many I oc
cupants of tho benches wcro tramps say
thoso who urged their removal Are tramps
outside the scale of humanity and is I their
comfort utterly unworthy of consideration 1
Shall the other Idle people who drive through
Central Park havo every provision made for
their convenience while the tramps are
kicked away as worthless drones 1
Besides if what you call a tramp Is a poor
man without a settled homo without employ
ment and a disposition to wander t and
fto tin city Is full of tramps Close by tho
City Hall lurk there art hnudrcds of lodging
houses frequented by such men who make a
precarious living and who aro Idle half the
tlmo either Irom necessity or bad judgment
or habits Shall they bo driven out of tho
pinks and existence made still miserable
pai nlli oxlltOICO mndl It1 more mlser
ble for them Have they not an much right
there as anybody else Moreover Idle or
unemployed len want Boats In such a park
as the City Hall enclosure more than the
busy men They may havo nowhere else
to go
Such Indifference to the welfare of largo
classes of the public aa0cn VIELE showed is
very common among those who have escaped
tho privations of poverty They arc utterly
Ignorant of the feelings ot a vast share of
tho community and have not Imagination
enough to conceive or understand them
Then they wonder why the poor are so In
imical to them Even in their charity they
urn apt to bu Insulting treating the objects
of It us If they belonged to different anodes
from the welltodo with different sensibili
ties and
tlS pohslons
Mr WALKS has done a wise thing i put
ting back the benches
Not a Clood Enough Prohibitionist
I appears that tho fact that Mr BLAINE
has been for a long time citizen of the State
of Maine could not Induce the Prohibitionists
to choose him as their candidate Maine Is a
prohibitory State and no Kepubllcan states
man could prosper there unless ho was In
active or affected sympathy with tho pre
vailing Idea ou temperance There Is no rea
son to suppose that Mr ULAINE has ben ai
exception to this rule Indeed It Is I alleged
that many of the succesbivo additions to
tho liquor laws of Maine whereby It I
has been attempted to keep liquor fur
ther and further from public view have
been suggested by bun But that wasu
enough BLAINE will take n drink when lie
WILt to and tho Prohibitionists havo pre
ferred to nominate their own man who wont
drink at all and Is I ready to both speak and
write In favor of temperance whether It Is
in Ohio or Virginia j aud they expect at Ibo
coming election to eclipse all other efforts for
temperance by cabling 1 much greater uum
bur of ballots than they over east before
Brother ULAINK may bo a good enough
theoretical temperance man for Maine bu
bo WA nut Mood enough tor tlm Ou the
othofhan4W MiocWMo lth his present
State hiar not b regarded kindly by thono
wild base a doddod Interest In the halo and
rianufacturo of liquor A rot many 0
hem live In Ohio In Now York to they
are strong and If they should become hostile
t Mr BLAINB It will bo a muuJi moro seri
ous thing for him than the defection of the
noro noisy Independents In that case ho
may wish that ho had long ago become the
ironouncod champion of prohibition or had
kept clear of the Imputation of temperance
by remaining a citizen of Pennsylvania
A Time or Trial for Our Ilourdi ol
Tho cholera baa already reached Paris
A steamer with two cases on board has ar
IvoJ lu tho river Mersey at Liverpool
Thor Is considerable probability that In
rot vessels may enter our own ports be
fore long Notwithstanding these facts 1
are by no meal approhenslvo of a cholera
pldomlo In tho United States this season
I our health authorities are half a ofllclont
as they havo heretofore professed t bo
when demanding money out of tho public
rcosury for sanitary purposes they ought to
have little difficulty In keeping the disease
out of tho country or In stamping It out
quickly If It happens t got In
There Is a National Board Health which
Is a Federal Institution In addition t this
vo have hero In Now York a State Board of
Health a city Board of Health or Health
Department and numerous town Boards of
Health Wo presume that sanitary bodies of
a like character exist In many other States
and cities lu tho Union Now Is tho time for
thor to justify their existence
When the National Board of Health was
established wo wore assured that It would
greatly aid the existing sanitary authorities
In preventing tho Introduction of epldumlo
disease from foreign lands Tho present
outbreak of cholera In Europe affords It n
fine opportunity t prove tho truth of this
Tho pretensions of this Institution nnd of
all the others wo havo mentioned will bn
judged by what they show themselves able
to do whenever a great epidemic trios to got
In and gain a foothold here Wo know that
nany of the regulations which they habitu
ally enforce tend t promote tho public
health and probably save thousands of liven
alo accustomed to look
audually Wo aro ccuslolUI lok
upon our various Boards of Health as or
ganizations which aro capable of affording
security in times of peculiar peril We
might not abolish them I they failed to
out the cholera but should longer
keep Olt cholor wo bouiino lonl l
regard them with the same confidence
Wo hope and expect that they will prove
equal to the emergency
I Governor Cleveland a Republican
Wo think not but some of tho Itepubllcan
newspapers which oppose Mr DLAIXK are
tryIng to convince their readers that ho Is
Listen for example to what tho politico
religious Jntlrinnjciil says Wo vote for
Mr CLEVKLANO not because ho Is a Demo
crat but because he is the butter Republican
of the two candidates
This reason may bo satisfactory to Itcpub
icans who disapprove of their own patty
nominations but It is not satisfactory t
Democrats I Mr CLKVKLAND Is not a
democrat but is really a Itepubllcan who
diffars from Mr BliAlxu chiefly In having 1
letter character he Is not entitled to tho
support of the Democratic party and should
decline Its nomination
Wo supposed tho Independent Republicans
were going to vote for CLEVELAND because
they preferred to put Into the White House
Democrat who honest rather than
a Domorat was rther a
Republican who was tho author of tho
MULLIOAK letters I now appears however
that some of them are acting on tho assump
tion that the Governor of New York Is
after all only a Republican In disguise
Mr CLEVELAND will do well to dispel this
notion In his lottor of acceptance
A Large Figure
Our esteemed contemporary tho Star Is
Inclined to estimate at two millions or near
ly BO the number of ballots which Gen nUT
LEI may count upon receiving as a candi
date for tho otllcu of President This is a
large figure
In 1830 tho total popular vote for President
counted up nearly nine millions and u quarter
The calculation now is that there will be
about cloven millions and out of this Im
mense aggregate two millions Is not too much
to allot to BUTLEII Indeed judging by the
way he ran as candidate for Governor of Mas
sachusetts last year wo should say that two
millions was a very moderate calculation
It Is 1 great thing to havo tho support and
I the suffrages of two millions of Intelligent
American citizens The man who runs for
President with such a support may well bo
proud of tho fact and his children may bo
proud of It after him
Yet In 1870 Mr TILIIEN had moro than four
millions and 1 quarter of votes and was de
frauded of tho office
I must bo 1 comfort to Gen BUTLER to
know that tho mon who committed und who
promoted this peerless crime are now all op
posed i to him
Tho Prohibition Homo Protection party
made a rather poor selection of a candidate
for Vlcle lloM in the person I of Mr WIL
LIAM DANIEL of Maryland who was such a
failure as temporary Chairman of the Con > an
ton Mr DANIEL will hae much of par
liamentary knowledge to acquire before
iii will bo capable of properly vro
siding ovor tho United States Rnnato
Happily the nominee for President Governor
Br JOHN of Kansas Is a young and healthy
man so that It ho should bo olectod Sir

Tke Dry Oooda Inltroat
From tht American Grocer and Dry Qooii Reporter
The dry goods jobbing Interest compared

business traniacted U I not larger but I has b1 more
voniertallvely manased In the flrst place JoUbera j
clocks are imaller than at tho close of the spring leaion
of IHMH uoodi have been more judlclouily toujht asS
there Is I 01 less amount of unsalable stock now on hand
tlinn In any previous history of the dry good Interest
Purchases for the most part have been strictly In ac
cordance with actual requlremsuti and have been ills
trllmted throuKh a series of months is occasion ile
tniinded As result payments have not been large In
any first period amid consequently they hat been
promptly met as they fell due There 1 I less I dry roods
piiper alloat al the present thins In this and other money
markets than lu IJ former period of Its history when
the Increased MIume of business la I taken
Ihlacrld I bUI1 11 Into consider
ation Jobbers are paying their bills as a rule promptly
atul askluir but few I any favors from Importers and
commission events Their louts by bid debts li ve been
lIght as compared ultlt other spring seasout and they
hay suffered but a slIght loss In closing out their broken
assortments of sprint and summer goods Throughout
tin entire prim season there has boon a eteady tone to
values and no demoralization of prices has existed Con
sequently the busluest transacted haa been done at a
fair average profit
The sprint business of tss has been more uUifac
lory with jobbers than any similar season since Ibfn
Jobbers are extremely conservative and cautious and
never In Ihlr history hay they conducted tlnlr bust
hess closer to their capital than the present There Is
an entire absence of speculation and overtrading and
the business transacted Is healthy and legitimate Dur
ing the past two oar of liquidation In 1 branches of
Ira the weak spots have about all been elltnlnaUi
from the dry goods Jobbing business slid the firms now
conducting It have a good basis of capital
The fahiure ii hch have recently occurred were not
due to stringent nieniy or general depression but were
due solely In bad inanagemunt and should not be
charged to outside clicumstuncea
After a thorough review of Iho dry goods Interest
wholesale and retail base upon personal Inquiries amid
observation and sloe from the retorts commercla
agencies we r satisfied I Is lu a sound and substan
