I f Tlie Clerical Party.
ii The clergy seem to be entering Into poll-
' ties at tlila period more than ever before In
j " sour history, Ihoy oro not content with
f J slvlng moral and religious Instruction,
leaving tho lnlty to npply It In praotlcnl at-
lairs acoordlnit to their own confidences.
.Instead of this tho clergy nro taking tho
part of nctlvo pollllcnl lenders with spoclflo
. 'political designs.
Tho llefuriucd Presbyterian mlnlstorsare
; circulating petitions to Congress asking that
Ood Bhall bo formally recognized In tho
1 Constitution ns tho only Supremo Itulcr;
: I and they aro refusing to voto until their ro-
' quest Is granted. Methodists and Presbyto-
rlans In their gencrnl convocations demand
1 that religion shall bo made a part of tho pub-
lie school education, nud a society, made up
1 of ministers chlcily, linn boon organized to
combat the supposed Inllurncc of the Church
' ' cf Homo upon scliool legislation. They cry
j out that tho schools must bo protoctod
I 'against clerical Influence, and yet at tho
inno tlmo they protrst that tho seculariza
tion of tho schools must not continue. They
I Bcem to be desirous of bringing the religious
Issue Into politics, with the clergy as tho
' natural and lnovltablo lenders.
t A largo number of ministers of various
I ' denominations havo also been preaching ser-
inons after an organized plan, declaring
i that what thoy call civil Bervlco reform Is a
i 'religious obligation. Thoy havo been en-
I Jlsted In tho Mugwump army as political
, j leaders; and even tho freo traders, though
' ' they preach n doctrino which does not go
r ! Jjoyond self-Interest merely, havo recruited
j j lergymcn to proclaim It as a grand law of
' J Juorals and religion.
1 Tho Itev. Dr. 1'AiiRirnnsT of the Prosby-
i il terlans, Dr. Elukxpoiif of tho Dutch Ile-
. torrued, and Mr. Hnucit Newton of tho
J Episcopalians havo entered Into tho munlc-
j Jpal campaign with groat heat, contending
I 'that their Hocks must mako tho t,nsk of
, ' changing tho present municipal officers n
, f , 'profound religious duty. To that end, and
f i i "with tho osslsanco of Bishop Pottkh. tho
' j ministers of this mind aro about to organlzo
1 . a clerical party In municipal politics; anil
1 ? t tho churches will probably bo transformed
' intohallsforgeneiatliigeuthuslasinlnbolialf
' ' of tho movement. The town will ring with
political sermons If this project works and
, 1 tho test of orthodoxy and Christian principle
I ' ttnay bo tho support of tho clerical ticket.
' ' , This, of course, is likely to mnko discord
!ln the churches, for nearly all tho leaders of
' , tho opposition aro church members, and It
Islmprobablo that they will change their
I political course at tho dictation of their
pastors. For Instance, In Dr. Paiieuuiist's
! iladlson Square Church Is Collector En-
i J liAnDT, who wants a straight Itt-publlcan
I j ticket undor any circumstances ; and yet nc-
, ' cording to tho view of the clerical party, the
advocacy of such a ticket Is downright sin.
:' TThoy want tho field unobstructed for their
j light with Tammany. Uoss Platt Is also
j nmong tho parishioners, and ho may mako
1,5 J A np his mind that it Is bad politics to run a
' tf clerical ticket. Another of Dr. Paiikiiuiist's
t parishioners Is Mayor Smitu Ely, faithful
i In his nttention to his religious duties, and
! yet so 6agaclous that ho may regard the
I project of the clergy as Impracticable
: l Hence tho plan of bringing tho clergy and
IS tho churches into politics Is suro to load to
, t i much embarrassmont, and It may provoko
' tlissenslonswhlch will bo long In healing; for
' f no church would bo unanimous In Its views
f ' 1 of political duty nnd espetllciicy. Somo of
i ! j tlio congregation would bo on the aide of tho
) J clerical party and somo would bo supporting
i J tho regular Democratic or Kopubllcan uom-
j I lnations. Yet the pastor would bo clectloueer-
J lng for the clerical ticket with might and
j j main, and preaching that It was a Chi Istlan
duty to voto for It, and lnforentlallj u sin
I against God to voto any other way.
Itseems to us.nccordingl, thntthls move-
j mont of the clergy is 111 advised and doomed
' to exemplary defeat. When tho Church en-
I ; tore tho political arena, tho great majority
of tho pooplo will feel that their duty as clt-
1 Jzons requires them to administer to It
'! n Bharp rebuko as a warning against any
I repetition of tho experiment.

Blr. Ulalno on the Sugar Question.
The most eonslblo and Impressive utter
ance thnt has appeared respecting the Tariff
bill now ponding In Congress, is the letter of
Mr. Blaine to Mr. Cony of Augusta. Wo
havo already published It, but Its slgnlll
ennco and value will not bo diminished by
publishing It again:
" Wiinnroroir, D. O., Jane It. lno.

"Jixia 0. Butiti"
We do not know that anybody's opinion can
change the courso of tariff legislation in the
present Congress; but wo should supposo
that Mr. Blaine might bo listened to with
uttentlon by tho Republican majority. What
ho says Is wiso, statesmanllko, nnd practical;
and It ought to boar fruit
Points In Dispute.
Those who arellrm believers In tho theory
that In many minds there Is much wisdom,
will havo an excellent opportunity during
tho summer months, when the days aro long
nnd tho bhadows shorten, to put their fa
vorite fancy to tho test of proof In connec
tion with tho confused and conflicting elec
toral ballot law which has latterly been con
ferred upon us. During tho past six weeks
It has bcon explained by Ecores of experts
In public nnd In private, without bringing to
the surfaco a solitary mortal whoso Inter
pretation any ono else has fully accepted.
Tho latct aspirant Isa former Corporation
Counsel of this town, who has dovoted much
Btudy to tho rldillo, and has obtained on In
timate knowledge of what ho believes the
law to mean through conferences with
that eminontly "practical politician," Mr.
Horace 11 Deminq of tho great Reform
Club. Together, thoso gentlemen have come
to tho conclusion that tho view as to one
provision of tho law entertained by states
men, politicians, lawmakers, publlo func
tionaries, and voters generally ls;erroneous;
and that, properly construed and read
through the eyos of knowledge. It means
something very different from what It says,
or says something very different from what
It means', it Is not settled which.
Tho view of tho so-called politicians Is that
an Independent cnndldato will derlvo no ben
ellt from tho now law for tho reason that, as
only ono ballot can be voted, his ballot will
not bear tho names of candidates for other
ofllces, and thorefore he will havo to depond
on pasters to elect him. Tho politicians
baso their conlldonco In this view of the
question upon iseotlon 17 of the law:
"When nominations are made by convention, com
mittee, or primary meeting, aa prescribed in aectlon 8
of this act and candidates are not named for all the
placeaon the ballot tlteplacttArrwhUhnomlnaltotu art
not mate I'mll be un tlanl, Kim (Ac name oMe cflcc only
printed on tht oalfof."
This Is apparently clear enough, but tho
representatives of the Iteform Club contend
that tho law means something else. They
say that a candltlato on an Independent
nomination can havo his namo printed on as
many tickets of his choice as ho pleases, and
can take tho entire ticket nominated by any
or all of tho political organizations and have
his own namo substituted on each ticket for
that of tho candltlato of tho organization.
This Is to be done under section 6 of tho law :
"The Independent certificate may designate and ap
point on the face thereof caeor more peraona who, for
the purposes set forth In aectlon 17 of thla act, aball rep
resent the algnaturaa of said certificate."
Section 17 says :
"There ahall also be aa many different ktnda
of ballota aa may bo required to comply with the
directions hereinbefore authorised of tho person or per
sons designated and appointed, as provided In aectlon fl
of thla act tipoa certificates of nomination."
According to this theory, a most ludi
crous situation would ensuo. A Deraocratlo
candidate for Congressman, for Instance,
would appear on ono ticket only, and a
Republican candldato on one ticket only;
but a Woman's Suffrngo or Iteform Club
crank could appear on as many tickets as
ho asked tho titato to print for htm, perhaps
fifty or sixty. Tho hapless voter would
thoroforo recelvo on entering the polling
placo some sixty-two tickets, on sixty of
which the name of the crank would bo
printed, whereas It would need an
active search to extricate from tho
bunch tho ono Democratic or one Repub
lican ticket. The law already provides for
the printing this year of thirty-two billion
tickets In Now York cltyl If such a pro
vision as Is claimed really exists, the num
ber would havo to be multiplied by forty or
fifty, and the result would bo lost In a mass
of figures as Indefinite as tho number of
hairs on llAr.iiArtosfu'H head, of sands on
the seashore, or of drops of water In New
York harbor.
This would bo Indeed ballot reform with a
vengcanoo, a real reductw ail aovnJim of
the whole business,
Tho new electoral law Is bo loosely and
crudely drawn that It cannot be said
with any certainty what orae of Its
provisions really mean; but tha clause
giving persons the right to present an
Independent candidate authorizes them,
under any reasonable Interpretation of tho
111111 '
law, to sen thnt his t okots nio printed anil
distributed, Jiibt in the same way as rt
party convention may have tho Interests of
its nominees guarded by a commlttoo duly
appointed for thnt purpose Neither com
mittee Is empowered to embark In tho busi
ness of making up lists of combination tick
ets, or U call upon tho Board of Pollco to
print fanciful nnd fantastic assortments of
names. Either connnltteo has tho power
to secure the printing nnd dlittrlbutlon of
ono ticket. Whether or no that bo a com
plelo party tlckel, with every candldato In
nomluntlon for every pluuo upon It, or o,
crank (oinnvunre, with ono olllt'O filled
anil tho others left blank for writing
on p inters, as under section 3, is of
no liiipoitanoo. Tho right to nominate
rtsin with the people or with partlos.
Neither the ono nor the other ran dclrgato
to n comtiiK to.. iMiworrt not greater than Its
own. As '.m Independent ulti70us only havo
the p win to luiti ono ticket prlntod.lt
would certainly seam giotesquo that n com
inlll'M nppointed by these 300 could compel
tho Stale to print fifty or sixty sots of tick
et's for eiich voto; whereas a political organ
I7.1 ion casting perhaps 100,000 votes would
be by Inw restricted toouo tlckctonlyln tho
hnndi of eneh fleet or I
'iheso mo tho facts of the case, from which
ovuiy uwler can draw his own conclusion,
but tho cliiMitustaneo thnt any controversy
hns niisen upon so plain a point shows how
ambiguous the now law Is In Its terms, nnd
how unsatisfactory n thing It would bo to
have much lawmaking dono by states
men of tho Reform Club pattern, who nro
unable to explain the meaning of features of
legislation which thoy say thoy originated,
which they lose no opportunity of approv
ing, and which thoy call upon every one
elso to favor and applaud.
Idterury Prospects In the Twenty-sixth
District or Pennsylvania.
Slnco the rearrangement of the Congress
districts in Pennsylvania, the town and
county of Erio are In the Twenty-sixth along
with Crawford county, instead of forming,
with Venango nnd Warren, the Twenty-
seventh and tall-end district of the btato,
as was previously the case.
This circumstance, uninteresting as it may
seem, has an Important relation to the pros
pects of epistolary literature In tho region
infestod by tho Hon. William L. Scott.
In tho celebrated campaign of 1880, whon
Bill Scott was running as an alleged Dem
ocratic candidate for tho Fiftieth Congress,
ho was obliged to apply to tho Republican
President of a groat railroad corporation for
assistance to enable him to carry the old
Twenty-seventh district, or to "pull
through," as Bill Scott expressed It at the
time. And tho Democratic plurality that
year In Erio, Venango, and Warren counties,
with all of the help the candidate secured
from Dr. Depew, was only 1,213, with a
Prohibitionist candidate in tho dold who re
ceived 2,140 votes.
Now that Erto county is associated with
Crawford, tho up-hill work for a Democratlo
candidate for Congress from that district is
at III stcepor. Tho present Representative,
Mr. Culbcbtson, is a Republican. Ho car
ried the district two years ago by moro
than 3,000 Kopubllcan plurality.
The Crawford county Democrats havo
nominated Mr. Scott for Congress. Erie has
6tlll to make her choice. If it should bo Bill
Scott, he would be the Democratlo candidate)
for tho Fifty-second Congress, and, as we
learn from tho Xiw York Timta, ha " would
have the active support of tho corporations
which have hitherto been powerful in Penn
sylvania politics."
But If it wns n tight squeeze for Bn,L In
18S6 In the old district, beforo he had demon
strated tho truu nature of his solicitude for
thowolfaroof tho starving coal miner, what
would It be In tho now district, now that ho
Is hotter known and lias a solid Republican
plurality of 3,000 to overcome with freo rail
road passes and othor benefactions ? Ho
barely pulled through four yoars ngo. How
many letters would he have to write this fall
modelled on his celebrated appeal to Dr.
Dkpew ?
"Mr piuRelR. Darsw: 1 don't often ask for favors in
the way of passes, but If I could get an annual pasa,
good until Jan 1, over the New York Central Railroad
aud It would ault me better If I could get It from New
York to Frle In favor of lliaur JH'TrxitruLP. It wootd
bo a great advantage to me hr In thla district.
" AlthouKh you atro m Bopablleam send I
asm at Denaocratt, we do not differ aatuQfcs 1st re
gnrd to our views In connection wltb corpo
rate property, nnd I nsatr be sable to ssrve
tneae tntereats should I pull throng;- apjnln.
"I am aure the puss would not be used three Umea
betsseen now and Jan. 1. Youra truly,
Erii, ra , Sept. 23, issa. " W. L. Scorr."
There are times, In Bill Scott's opinion,
when corporation men ought to stand to
gether, without regard to party lines. If
tho Democrats of Erie county are so crazy
as to make him the chosen representative of
their Democracy, wo havo no reason to
supposo that Bill's pen will hesitate to ad
dress to Republican railroad Presidents all
over tho country appeals as urgent and
promises as glowing as those which enlisted
the sympathetic codperatlon of Dr. Depew.
Tho heart, even of a Republican railway
President, that can resist such an appeal,
must be made of anthraclto.
If Bill Is nominated, we don't believe he
will "pull through again." Nevertheless,
tliero will be a good many letters written
this fall in Erie.
Art in Brooklyn.
Simultaneously with the announcement
that the affairs of the Art Association in
Brooklyn nro to bo more vigorously admin
istered thnn thoy have been for the last two
or three years, comos the nows that the
Brooklyn Superintendent of Parks has re
fused to grant to Mr. William M. Cimse
a permit to sketch In Prospect Park.
Mr. CiiAsis has the mlsfortuno of being a
professional painter, and for this reason it Is
deemed objectionable to allow him to mako
pictures in that park. If ho were only on
niiiufetir, ho would not bo excluded from this
prl lingo; but Mr. Aneuiiin Jones, the park
-iiiermti'ndnut, has determined In Ills own
mind that Prospect Park shall be used by
m tints for pleustiru nnlv, and not for prollt.
Hence Mr. Chahi: Is barieil out.
When a i cjioi ter of Tin: Hn.v called the at
tention of Mr. Oeoiioi: V. Biiowkii, tho Pres
ident of tho IliooUlyn Park Department, to
this mutci, his rrriwnso wiik that ho could
not untleirtiuiid II, nnd that tho Commis
sioners hud iiooblectlon to the presence of
artists In Prospect Pnik. Wo advle Mr.
Buowim to tuke the pulns to uudcrittnnd it
without nny delay vihnt.iver, and to abro
gate at once such a ridiculous legulatlon us
Mr. Aneuhin Jonhs proposes to enforce.
If there Is anything In Brooklyn, or In
New York for that matter, that any artist
wants to pnlnt, let him paint It without let
or hindrance. Brooklyn lias a very beautiful
park, in somo re.spocts superior to tho Central
Pork, especially by reason of tho greater ago
and size of Its forest trees; and why any
one should deslro to prohibit tho re
production of its beauties on canvas, wo
cannot Imagine, Besides, If anybody Is to
bo forbidden to skotch tliero, it should not
be the professional artist who works tor his
living, but the well-to-do amateur, to whom
sketching Is a mere amusement.
Brooklyn ha sometimes been called t
country village; but there Is hardly any
Tillage whose Inhabitants would not take
pleasure In having the attractiveness of its
surroundings perpetunted by art.
We commend Mr. Aneuhin Jones to tho
unfavorable attention of tho Brooklyn Park
Commissioners. They should suppress him.
Tho census seomt to bo an extraordinary
failure.
The Qlobf.fltmotraU a stalwart Republican
journal, tlsolares that in St. Louis It Is incom
plete and umtatHactorr. The Jinit Citu
Titnts. o stalwart Uomocratlo Journal, reports
that " Kansas City will bo cro1y mlnropro
sonted In tha coii'iusof ISDO unless a rocount
enn bo secured."
The nntne complaint is made In almost every
quarter of the country.
It will not bo surprising if tho roport proves
true that Stanley la going back to Africa next
year as Ooornor of the Congo Stnto. King
I.coroi.!) has been particularly happy In tho
Oovornors who havo roprofiented him on tho
Congo. Vf. Winion, who fcuccooded Stanley,
and Jannskns, tho presont Ineumbont. have
both dono much to replace savaKory with ordor
and good government. But aftor all thr-io is no
namo so potent on tho Congo as that of Stanley,
and it will be a boon to thoStatoit tblsmnn
of wonderful onergy Is In command whon tho
new era which tho railroad will introduce Is
ushered in.
Tho Board of Pollco Commissioners havo
done wisely In doallng promptly with ths
charges which Assistant District Attornoy
Jkiiome makos agnlnBt Dotoctlvo Carey of tho
Sixteenth product. In tho Si-ence trial on
Monday Mr. Jkiiome nccuaod CAnny of perjury
and testified that ho would not bellavo lilm un
der oath. Omiky was one of the witnesses
acalnst Spence, but his avormont that tho
prlsonor bad made to him a confession of wil
ful Intent was discredited by tho mry, who
found tho prisoner guilty of murder in tho sec
ond ilecrso only. The Pollco Poaril hnvo re
quested Mr. Jkromk to formulate his accusa
tions against tho ofllcor. so that thoy may bo
Inquired Into by the Board.
According to Mr. Jehomk. Ctnr.T is the sort
of ofllcer whoso continuance ontheforcots n
glaring injustico to his moro ablo aud consci
entious associate. It appears that the Dis
trict Attorney's office rooontly prosecuted a
case against a young man who was accusod of
snatohlng a pocketbook from a lady's hand.
Detective Cahey asked Mr. Jerome, when the
latter was preparing the ca?e, If there was not
some way in whioh ho could brine in the fact
that the prlsonor had a brother In Sice Sing,
and Jfrome told him he could not, Whon De
tective Caiucy took tho stand, he surprised Mr,
Jerome by swearing that when ho caught tho
prlsonor ho reproached him with following in
the footsteps of his brother who was In prison.
The policeman Intowhcso hands the prisoner
had run when arrested said that De
tective Carey was not noar him, and had
said nothing about his brother. The prlsonor
was discharged. In another case, a youthful
prisoner, who was accused of stealing a coat,
claimed to bo innocont Do toe the Cvrey at
the trial turned up the sleevo of tho coat, It Is
said, and disclosed the name of tho owner
printed insldo. Tho boy protested his lnno
conee. and was acquitted. The namo. It Is
said, bad been stamped by Ciiiky subsequent
to the arrest of the prisoner, and for the pur
pose of connecting him with the crlmo, of whioh
ho was found to bo entirely innocont.
To tho credit of tho pollco force such accusa
tions as those against Cujky are rare. The
manufacture by a police ofllcer of false and
iDcrlmlnatlng testimony to tho projudlco of nn
innocent person, Is a detestable offence. Tho
Police Commissioners cannot bo long in arriv
ing at a final judgment in this caso.
The Chicago running track, ns we learn
from tho Kansas City Times, Is to lead off In
revolutionizing racing in the direction of
longer dlstnncos. AtltsnoU meeting, besides
a two-mlio race, there will bo ono for two miles
and a half, ono for three miles, nnd aDOthor for
four miles, tho latter for an added sum of $4,000.
Wo cannot say that we are fond of four-mile
heats. They may bo won by bottom without
speed, and that is a combination but little
more aduilrablo to the racing man than speed
without bottom. But wo applaud the spirit
that prompts a change of the nature proposed
In Chicago, and for Its justification It may
point to the fact that the now preifminout win
ner of the Suburban on Tuesday, n genuine
race horso, was from a dam by a four-mile
sire. Vet Salvator's slro was a sprinter only.

WisniNOTON. June 18. One of the most im
portant changes over ofTeoted In army admin
istration has just boon anthorlrod by Congress.
Tho liberty given to the soldier to purchasa
the unoxptrod portion of his enlistment,
though familiar In soma forolgn services, Is a
novolty Inoure. One objection to it has bcon
its supposod tondenoy to unottlo the military
establishment by glting tho Government
too littla assured hold on tho mon. It
has also boon suggested that discharges
by purchase might have n bad ofToct
on tlio illscliillno of thoso who should remain.
On tho othor hand, n cnuso of depletion and
demoralization much groator than could bo
imputed to the purchoso system has for n
longtime existed In thoonormous drain from
dosortloc. To discharge in nn ordorly way
tinder duo process of law thoso who aro chron
ically discontented with tho sorico Is cortnln
ly better thnn to liao thorn oscape In violation
of law. llesldos, tbe pecuniary advantages of
tho formor system aro groat, since tho flovorn
ment can rolmburso Itxelf for Its oxponsos In
equipping and transporting tho recruit.
At nil etents, undor the act now patsod by
Congress, it is declared that "In time of peaco
tho 1'roBldont mar, In his discretion nnd undor
such rules nnd upon such conditions as ho
Bhall prescrlbo, ttormit any enlisted man to
purchase his dlschnrgo from the army." Of
course, these conditions will provido agnlnst
tho sudden and unwlso reduction of a particu
lar garrison or command. The first thought
to suggest itself Is that tho worthless and
sblftlos4, whom It may be most duslrablo to net
rid of.will probably have no funds with which to
buy their freedom, while tho btendy and frugal,
whom It is desirable to rotaln. villi And a
door thrown open to them In this measure.
lint a proeeduig section ol tho bill provides
for the retention of 14 a month from tlio
monthly pity of every onlistod mail during tho
first your of his service, which is not to bo paid
to Mm mill! Ms diBi'Imruo. Lxnctly what sum
m ill Lio lled upon by the War Jiopartmont us
the prlco of a discharge is not yet known: but
It N clear that this compulsory rotontlonof
wnuos will co lar toward reimbursing tho Gov
ernment for thoso exnonees which nro to bo
made the bnsls of tho purchase prlco: and
with an honornblo oxlt In view the soldier oau
easily lay aside enough moro from his pay to
secuto tlio rosl.
It Is tlio provision for a discharge that jus
tillos tho retention of pay, which Is also now to
be put iu operation for tho tlrsttlmo. This
rctoutlon will have an additional elleot in
diminishing desertions, rlnco tho largorand
larger the rutnlnod amount grows the lona and
less roitdy will the soldier be to forfolt It. '1 ho
devlco nilitht be open to the objection ot
incommoding all tor tho sake of getting a
hold upon n lew: and alHo of making the soldier
discontented by diminishing tho supply of his
poeket money during the year when nis pay Is
tho smallost nud when ho neods It tha most.
It might also oporatu as n bar to the sucoexs ot
the recruiting olllcois. liut now tho latter will
have more than an offset In being nb'e to as
sure tho recruit that It he does not like the
service ho can buy hla wny out, and that the
retention ot $1 a month during his first year
Is for thepurposo ot giving him a euro basis
for doing so. The rotnlned monoy also bears
Intorest llko tho voluntary doposlts with tho
l'avmastor now so largely made.
The net just passed contains other induce
ments for the recruit to enter the service nnd
to stay In It. It provides that, although the
torm of enlistment Is five yours, yet at tne end
of three tho solaler. If he has norod faithfully,
shall be entitlod to three months' furlough,
and shnll then, In tlmo of poace. bts entitled to
on honorable discharge, without purchase
should lio doslro It This not only makes tho
soldier suro of a long acntlon, but practically
permits him at the close of It to cut down his
live years' onllstmont to throe years at his own
option. All ho losos Is certain allowances
made to mon who fill out their full torm and
perhaps then roi'nlist.
Still another concession Is ths addition ot a
pound of egetnbles to tne presout day's ra
tion as llodbylnw. The purchase of unytlilng
not in tho ration is now effoctod by the com
mutation or exchange of surplus articles in It.
or In othor ways under tho operation of the'
company paid for the purpo-o. The iusulU
cioncy of the rutlon-s lins always boon a cause
of discontent, nnd the change now made hat
bcon urged by many ofllcers.
Will thoso various devloes decrease deser
tion In thn army .' if anything will do this, the
ponding monouro ought to be ofllclont. It con
tulns it further provision, giving Marshals.

so that tholr oscape will be lees easy than
hitherto. Hut the main relluneo Isonltspro
vMous for removing tho soldier's temptation
to do'ert. With this ration uinde moro pnl
atable. the long furlough at the end of tho
third jciir. the optional roeao nt the
end of that year, and tho discharge by
purohaie at any time under tho condi
tions to be prescribed, no aoldler will
horeafter have any excuse for dishonorably
quitting the colors, if he finds that tho mili
tary life Is not what ho expoetod, if his duties
aro monotonous. If there nro attractions for
him in civil life, If no dlxllkes tho ollleors who
command him, with a little patience and a lit
tle sacriflco ho can obtain nn honorable dis
missal. Lnlistmcut may bedue to toinpornry
nngor or mlsfortuno; perhaps, also, tho soldier
In the far West makos friends, ttho urgo him
to join them in mining cattlo raising, or othor
industries. In these nnd in other casos hla
rolathos or friends can procure his relenso
by contributing their funds for tho purpose it
his own nro not sulllalont.
How all this will work it Is difficult to say.
Tho oxporlonco ot forolgn countries, nlthough
enough to show tho general practicability or the
system. Is renllv no guldo to our own. The
extraordinary proportions of desertions hero
suggosts that many moro tempting openings In
other pursuits are soou by men In our army,
liut tho oxnertmont Is Interesting and Im
portant, ami of Its ability to roducu desertions,
which N tho primary purpose, there can bo
ory little doubt.

THE TI1I11D AYKSVB CAB LB BCUEKE.
It Is Expected that the Hystcan 'Will Be la
Use by Autumn.
Now that the Third Avenue Railroad Com
pany has won Its light for a cable to take tbe
place of horse powor, tho company, President
Lyon says, is going right ahead to make
preparations for the change. A meeting of the
Board of Directors has. been called for Mon
day afternoon next, at 4 o'cloak, when plans
will be discussed und an approximate estimate
of tho entire cost of tho schomewillbo made.
President Lyon figures that If work is begun
promptly, as he Is certain It will be, tho whole
road can bo equipped with the new motive
force In ten months. The cable will be com
peted on the lower part of the road first, and
as soon as it Is finished to blxty-llfth street,
which mar be In five months or so, cars will be
run on this portion. The other halt will tike
as much longer to comuleto,
The change to a cable will mean o oomplets
revolution, nnd when evorythlng is oompletod
tho old Third avenue lino will be no more, and
practically a new road will take its placo. Tho
present stables of the company at Slxty-Ufth
street and Third inonue are to bo used for the
contral powor station, and another engine
housois to be built down town on tho line ot
tho rond somewhere near Ninth street.
1'resldent Lyon explained thnt the new sys
tem will mako a probable saving ot forty min
utes on tlio round trip from Vl'Mi btreet to the
Post OIHce, which is now made in 2 hours and
-40 minutes. Tho old red cars now in use hold
about thirty-six persons. Tho new coblo cars
will hold nearly ilfty persons, and aro to cost
from $-'.500 to $:i,000 eaoh. Thoy will be of the
vostihule pntteru, having two compartments, a
main ono and a email one in therenr tor the
beuellt of smokers. On the new road the pres
ent drivers will become grlpmen. nnd there
will bo no reduction In the force ot men as
now employed.
Tho application of the Broadway and Seventh
Avonuo Streot Hallroad Company for permis
sion to change its piotlvo power from horses to.
cablo wns board by tho Btato Board of Hallroad
Commissioners. Mr. FJIhu Boot read tho com
pany's application, describing the style of cable

compnny had or could got thooonsentot a
majority or tho property holders along the

guarantee to the city a yearly rental of not less
than $1511,000.
Mosos Hermann opposed tho application, and
presented a petition from some twenty prop

About 200 Mormon converts from the British

Thov will not bo detained, as Chief Contract

current for several mouths. ,
"Those storlos" said Capt, Chndwlok, "are
funny, ono way sou look at them nnd nnother
way thoy are outrageous. They are ho absurd
that we on tho Ileot, who know thn facts, rather
laughed at thorn, but It scorns that tho folks at

that's too bad, Tho fact thnt thoro Is abso
lutely no good foundation for the storlos Is

mnrtlals and desertions. , There hnvo boon

Whero will you Mud ashore a community ot

BTIDENCE FOB TUB POLICE. '
Information About (Sunday Haleona Aeenxs
mutated by sTuatlce Talator.
Police Justice Charles N. Talntor explains
to a Sun reporter yesterday why he had been
gathering all tho evidence ot the opening ot
saloons on Sunday, which he has obtained
from the hosts of drunks who havo appeared
before him at Essex Market Court on Monday
mornlug with Sunday whiskey In thorn. Jus
tice Talntor turnod ovor to tho Pollco Board
on Tuesday all tho evldonco of this kind whioh
has been accumulating for wools past,
" When I llrst enmo to Essex," said Justtoe
Talntor, "I noticed what a groat number ot
drunks camo up on Monday morning, some- ,
times as many as 75 or 100 at a tlmo- Here "t
was evidence ot violations of the Excise law.
and I asked tho pollco of the products here
abouts why they couldn't enforoo the law.
They complained that it was impossible for "t
them to get evidence except that saloons wcro
open, as vtbelr patrolmen wore too well known
nnd tho bnrkoapors would not sell to them.
Theidoaoccuirod to mo thon that I might In
my province of Police Justice obtain ovidonco
if possible for tholr bonotlt. bo I simply
went one step further In my Questioning
ot tho prlsonors brought beforo mo, und when
they admitted that they had boon drunk, asked
them whero thoy had got tho Ihiuor. 1 hno
hold out no Inducement for tho men to nnsw-nr,
nor made any threats, but ai n general thing
tbe prisoners answered readily. 'Ihe Police J
Justices oro often blaniod and hold rosnon- '
slblo for tho failure of tho Excise law. but thn
reports of tho Justices, which show that ueurly
two-thirds of the excise prisoners who oomo
beforo them are hold, ought to refute this
charge. Of oourse 1 don't think It belongs to a
Police Justice to act the part of tho District
Attorney or the Superintendent of Police, but
this evldonco I have prepared and handed over
to the Police Hoard, and they can do with It ns
tbey choose. Thoy linto the mimes and ad
dresses of all tho mon whom I havo interro
gated, and it will bo an oasy matter to discover
whether they aro reputable citizens or not"
