Ijl1 Thorn Is ilancor that tho Jutllclnry Com- fjlji, ruiesion may attempt to do so much that all HI jji Us work will corao to nauchl. II 1 1' Tills Commission owes Its exUteiico to :j tlio noel of somo motliod of enabling Illl'il tlin Court of Appeals to (ilaposo of Its bual Ijljji noss moro rapidly. Tlio LoRlslnturo nppro III IS clntetl tlila need without being nolo to ngreo ijJj!j upon tlio brat, remedy. Accordingly It !j authorized tlio Governor to appoint n Com llllj' mission to proDonoatnonclmonU to tlio Judl j clary article of tho Stato Constitution. Tho Jfl i' Commission organized somo weeks .iro and lji appointed committees to consider tho sev IJI jfl cral courts; but up to tho present tinio moro i attention appears to havo bcon paid to tho III I Superior City Courts and tho Supremo Court ft IS than to tho Court of Appeals. Ijl jj Tlwro was no demand in any part of tho HI State, so far as wo havo ever heard, for any HI f decided chaiiRO In tho organization of tho HI! Hupremo Court, and yet tho commltteo on jij that tribunal is said to havo agreed to l. rt'coniniflnd that tho Ueucr.il Term or Appcl i!'i lato Judges of tho Hupremo Court bo elected 'JJjfi distinctively as such, not by judicial dis M triers as at presont, but on a titato tlckot; l'ln and, furthermore, that such Judgos bo dls jliijfji qualified from presiding at trials, and bo jlli M limited to tin) exerclso of exclusively nppol j jj m lata functions. 1 1 1 gffl Both theso changes would bo unwise. iu Tlio district system of choosing tho Judges III US ' 'ho Supremo Court has worked well for jlli n nearly half a century and should not bo Jll jU abandoned fortnight cnuso. Instead of pro- ffl lilbltlng tho Gonural Term Justices from M trying cases at Circuit and Special Term, all I j gy Appcllato Judges should bo empowered and la requlrod to presido over a trial court occa Ijll Sj elonnlly. In no other way can a Judgo bo j jw so well (juilllied to loviow tho work of other HI Judges in an appcllato tribunal. 1 ho Jus Ill I jfl tices of tho Supremo Court of tho United it S States aro obliged by law to hold Cir illiw cu't Coulta m their respective cir iM cults at least onco in two years, and if a 1 3lM elmilar requirement were imposed upon H each Judge of tho Court of Appeals In tills III H Statu it would bo a good thing. Evon tho j jln Lord Chiof Justico of England does consld llj H erablo work as a trial Judgo. (19 Other serious objections to tho schemo lj In formulated by the commlttoo for tlio reor f I If HB ganlzatlon of the Supromo Court might w readily be pointed out. 11111 ffl In no way will tho changes proposed in tho f ji Ooneral Term system tend In tho slightest 111 degree to relieve tho Court of Appeals. 1 j I Lawyers and litigants will appeal just as JU j! I quickly to the tribunal of last resort from a M 1 1 General Term composed of Judges elected HI i on a State tlckot as they do now from a !!ij General Term composed of Judges elected by III l! districts; and thoy will go from tho Court of jj Appeals to tho Supreme Court of the United HI i States whenever thoy can, and would go to jj j a still higher court If there was ono. In New 5ljj York, as In England, experience has shown Iff Hi that the right to take two appeals is most 3!SS satisfactory to tho people, In the largor class SJI:J of Important cases; first, to tho Goneral lllll Term, which Is tho court of intormodlato iHltli'ffl appeal, and, secondly, to tho Court of Ap- jJlllljH peals, which is the tribunal of final judg- llJ j ment. Many appoals, of course, aro not w H proeoouted beyond tho Goneral Term; but IH there is no reason to supposo that the iium- IJlllljffl bor of such cases would bo increased by J ijljll H adopting any of thn recommendations oon- i ! ln talned in tho published report of thoCora- ! -IB illffl mission's commltteo on tho Supreme Court. fflMffl Tho relief of the Court of Appeals must be Iffl iffl effected in some other and bettor way. 1 11 j!

Tho AVw lorft World has performed a use ful Mirvlco in tho causo of truth by procur ing from the county records of Capo May county tho exact text of tho dcod convoying the gift cottngo to Mrs. lUhltlsoN. Tho Inatiument Is dated on Juno 5, 1890. Tor tho consideration of ono dollar, in tho lawful monoyof tho United States, William V. McKkax of Philadelphia and his wife llANNAlt convoy to CAItOLlKB SCOTT IlAJl- mso.v, wife of Bn.NJAMiN Hahmbon of tho city of Indianapolis, Stato of Indiana, the land and structuro constituting tho eleemosynary establishment now famous as tlio free summer homo of the IlAnnisoN family. Tho deed was filed with tho County Clork on Juno 18, Just thirteen days after its execution. Anothor dcod, filed ono day eorllor than tlio date of tho gift dcod, rocords tho trans fer of tills samo property to Mr. MoKkan for $3,000 by Anson SI, Hamilton, tho Cato May Point social promoter nnd real estate speculator. Mr. McKean, through whoso hands the proporty passed on its way to tlio Presi dent's family, is a trusted omployoo of Mr. Geohou Washington Childs; and It was at his instance, that Mr. Childs and Mr. Drexul subscribed to tlio fund for tho pur cbaso of the cottago, knowing that tholr contribution was for a charltablo purpose, but not knowing, as there Is reason to bo llovo,'that tlio President of tho United States was to bo the boneilciary. Tho dates from tho Capo May county rec ords comploto tho history of a transaction that humiliates every American citizen; and thoy servo to demolish tho dishonest plea lately put forward in dofenco of tho Presi dent, namely, that ho porcclvod from tho first tho Impropriety of accepting tho cot tngo as a gift and Intended to pay cash for it as soon as ho had given it n trial. Tho proof that this version of the nffalr Is a tardy afterthought, an unworthy subtor fugo designed to relievo tho President of tho odium that has been piled on blm slnco we called attention to the scnndalous character of tho transaction, becomes as clear as noon day when tho dates aro consldorod. Tho news about tho gift was publlo property soon after tho coremony of presen tation. The President was warned on Juno 11 by Thk Sc.v that he bad taken upon bis shoulders a facandal which might have con sequences out of all proportion to tlio slzo of tho gift; and ho was then advised to glvo back tho cottago to the mysterious donors without delay. If ho had had the wit to sco tho wiluoof The Sun's advico at that time, or if it had been truo, as is now alleged, that from tho first ho entertained no other intention than to pay cash for tho cottago providing it proved satisfactory, tho gift deed of Juno 5 would never havo gone on record. It would havo been torn up at onco or locked up in somo solo and secret placo as a family souvenir, leaving the property legally in tlio possession of Mr. McKiian until such timo as tho President had satisfied himself of tho desirability of tho investment, when ho would havo taken a now deed from Mr. McKean, stating tho fact that ho had paid $10,000 for the property. Tho original gift deed would nover havo been filed for record, for tho filing of it under such circumstances amounted to putting on public record a lie, a lie dlacrodltnblo to tho President, and serviceable to him in no concelvablo way except upon tho supposition that ho intend ed by and by to dodge part of his taxes in Now Jersey. And yet a whole week after The Sun's warning to President Uabrison, and after tho press of tho country had taken up the subject and presented It In the light of a na tional scandal, tho gift deed was filed with tho County Clork by Mr. McKean at tho per sonal request of Mrs. Haiikibon, just two days beforo tho expiration of tho fifteen days' period allowed for tho protection of tlio grantoo by tho laws of Now Jersey. This is conclusive as to Gen. IIaiikison's intentions in the matter, no perceived tho Impropriety of tho business only after it had beon driven through his thick sensibili ties by plain talk and naked rebuko from all parts of the country, and by tho ominous sllonco of his most indulgent friends. Tlion this ridiculous story about his original atti tude toward the Hyndlcato of disinterested and selfishly interested bonefactors was concocted as a last resort. Tho injudicious attempt to clear Gen. Benjamin Hahribon and its Ignominious falluro leave him In a worse position by far than if the simple truth had been told and the mistake man fully acknowledged. Greed nnd gift grabbing aro deplorablo things In a President of tho United States, but thoy becomo almost respectable by com parison with tho later aspects of Gon. ILut rison's extraordinary behavior. Better Drivers Needed. A mooting of business men was held in this city last weok for tho purpose of organiz ing a society to lnsuro tho members against loss through lawsuits basod on charges of reckless or negligent driving against their omployeos. Merchants aro frequently sued bocause drlvois in tholr hervlce negligently nin over and malm or kill persons lawfully crossing tho public Etreots. The proposed association is to insure velilclos for asmuil yearly premium, say $15 each, against tho legal consequences of any uctof negligence committed by tho driver; that is to say, tho association will compen sate tho owner for any damag03 which may be rocovered against him for nny accident causod by tho careless management of tho insured vehicle. In tho meeting at which this projoct was discussed, a good deal was said against law yers who bring negllgenco suits and rely for their componxallou upon obtaining a vordlct against tlio defendant. Too much cannot be bald in condemnation of nttoruoys who en courago ollouts to Instituto suits without nny real foundation, or who incito and fo ment needless litigation; but it may well bo doubted whether the community would be better off if lawyois woro prohibited from over acting for a contingent foe, or if, as somo of tho speakers at this mooting sug gested, no one should bo allowed to bring an action for negligence unless ho first gave security for costs. Tho poor, and, indeed, tlio vory poor, are most frequently thovlotlmsof tho carolossly driven truck, leo cart, or beer wagon. To toy that they shall not suo tho wrongdoer unless thoy can pay a lawyer otherwleo than out of what raonoy thoy may recover In tlio suit, is to deny thorn any remedy ut all, or to require lawyers to serve them without compenf atlon, oven when ft successful pros ecution of the aotlon has furnished a fund out of which thoy can afford to pay for tlio services rendered. To exact soourlty for costs would lio to Impose an additional bur den on poverty. Thorols no llttlo exaggeration nowadays In regard to the number and result of neg- Jlgonco suits. Those which havo no sub- I etontiol boats ore, as a rule, promptly thrown mmmmmmmmmsBamsm out of court. The others are passed upon by Juries, and in the largo majority of tlioso cases a dofond&nt who lias a good defonco Is Just as fairly treated by tho Jury ns is tho plaintiff. And if it were not for tho admo nition afforded by on occasional verdict against the employers of careless drivors, street accidents dim to negligent driving would bo much moro common than thoy aro now. Tho members of tlio proposed Insurnnco association ran best secure themselves against tho liability they deslro to avoid by oxoiclsing moio caution In choosing quali fied and caroful men to drlvo their vehicles. No accident will occur In tho management of vehicles in clinrgo of such drivers, and bunco theio will bo no lesultlug lawsuits. The South Carolina Ciitechlnii. Tlio catechism which tho South Carolina Farmers' Alliance lias prepared for candi dates for Cougt ess Is pretty strong meat for weak slomaclis. Candidates who refuse to subscribe) to each and evory point In It, how ever, will not bo approved by tho Alliance, and will havo to shift for themselves. As tlio Alliance Is steadily bowling down Dem ocratic candidates who have Democracy onough loft to object to the more oxtremo doctrlmvi of tlio Alllanco, tho political pros pects of Southoru publlo men who find It difficult to surrender principles thoy havo held all their lives for tho now-fanglod no tion') aro not brilliant for tho moment. Aiiivmi'tho propositions which South Caro lina eondhhitas for Congress aro roqulrcd to pledgo themselves to support, "unlntlu enced by paity caucus," Is "tho abolition of national banks and tho substitution of legal tender Treasury notes hi lieu of iiatlon.il bank notes, issued In sufficient volume to do tho business of tho country on a cash system, regulating tho amount needed on a per capita basis as the business Interests of tho country expand, and that all money issuod by tho Government shall bo legul tender In paymont of all debts, both public and private" Tho regulation of tho volume of logal tcndorB on a per capita basis would bo a task whloh tho Alllanco statesmen would greatly joy in. Evory timo any member felt that Ills por capita allowance was too small tlio amount would havo to bo regulated again. Flat monoy, and plenty of It, is tlio South Carolina platform, and candidates for Congress who havo old fashioned ideas of unauco nocd not apply for ofllco this year. The South Carolina Alllanco will havo no candidates who will not say that thoy bo llovo that "means of communication nnd transportation shall bo ownod by and oper ated In tho Interest of the people, as Is tho United States postal system." Of courso candidates aro required to ap prove tho Sub-Treasury ,or agricultural pawn-shop schemo. South Carolina has long been a Demo cratic Stato. Tlio causes of the epidemic of Bellamylsm which Is now raging In it oro on that account all tho moro obscuro. It is Intelligible that paternal government should find supporters In Massachusetts, but in South Carolina a different theory of tho sphere of tho Federal Government has hith erto pi o vailed. The Knd of an Ill-muted Union. Tho final docree of divorce between Tariff Reform and Democratic Politics In Missouri has now been pronounced by Major Jones of the Ut. Louis Republic, who did so much to promote tho unfortunate match. A tariff reform club in the town of Hart well asks Major Jones whether, In his opin ion, it is piopor nnd right for tho club to call a meeting to select men to work at the Dem ocratic Township Convention, or to bo sent as delegates to tho County Convention. "For heaven's sake, No!" replies our dis tinguished friend, in slightly different lan guage, which we reproduco elsewhere. " Keep your hands off of practical politics. Keep tho club strictly to Its great work of education, of preparing pamphlets and tariff tracts, of circulating reform literature; but don't moddle with the affairs of tho Democ racy. Leave the management of that glori ous old party to Democrats. Thoy are able to run it successfully, if you lot them alone." This Is sound advico, and it reflects credit upon the SInjor's political sagacity. We commend his ablo Ideas on the subject to tariff reform organizations and educational institutions everywhere In tho land, includ ing William stroot. near WuII. Wo may add, as a supplement to Major Jones's uuthorltatlve pronunclamento, thut in the present situation the first duty of Democrats who may also be tariff reformers is tho promotion of Democracy, not of tariff reform. Why should not those dtscoidant sections of American citizens, the Sons of the devolu tion and tho American Kons of the Revolution, follow the example of tho formerly hostile societies of the Pacific slope one tbo Bocletr of California Pioneers, and tho otbor the Native Kons of tho Golden West? licforo they would break up the epiilt of Admission Day, soon to be celebrated, of California, by conflicting efforts at rival celebrations, they came to gether under the inspiration of orlcinai State prldu and agreed to give each other not only moral, but financial support.

A One of (Smaller entire neejnlretl for the New Mtrle of Ponder. Wamiivotov. July 2fi.-Tlie Secretary of War has about decided to Issue an order which will rendor tho abandonment of tho Knrltigfleld musket necessary. There Is no better gun of Its kind than tho standard arm now In use, but recent exporimonts havo demonstrated tho fact that belter results can be obtnlned by using a gun of sniallor calibre. Tho Spring field gun has n cntibre of 45. and It is proposed to ohnngo from that slzo to 30. For years it has boen tho groat desire of ordnance experts to produce a gun which would bo oiiually offoctlvo as tho one now in use. and would enablo tho soldier to carry a larger number ol rounds of nmmunltlon. In connec tion with this problom It hns boen desired to obtain a powdor which would glvo to tho pro jectile a Matter trujoctory. To obtain tho lat tor il would bo noeessaiy, of course, to attain n hlghor Inltinl voloclty. With the powdor oommonly usod tho Inltinl volocltj is about 1,350 feet por socond. To render tho Spring field gun olToctlvo nt a distaneu of two miles It must bo llrod at a vory high anglo. Ayoarngotho Swiss array was supposed to havo tho best small arms of any country. Tho calibro of tho gun was put at 30, nnd com pressod powdor of great strength was mod. This .powder gavo to tho prniocttle nn Initial velocity of about I.hiiij fret. The (iorninu Oov eriinient provisionally adopted both iho gun und powdor. and tho whole army vvna roarmod with tho now pattern of nnibket. liecontly nijothor prdor has oeon made bv tho Emperor which will caiisti th adoption of mi tntiroly nuvv gnu. This has beon brought about by the fairly successful experiments made wltn smokeloss ponder. 'i'horooro several kinds of this oxploslvo manufactured. Tho otlicorsof the Ordnnt.co Bureau think that tho Maxim powdor. on Ainorlcnn invi-ntion. is superior to nny of tho lorolgii brands. It has beeu found that nono ui mo vstripuiv Kinus ot smokeless explosives aro perfect. '1 buy are vory su-coptiblo of nt mosphorieohnngos. and will naitlcularly not retain all of their original eloiuents of mi porlorltv on shipboard. Moisture reduces tho powder toveryiltio grains, nnd when used ihe exploslou Is or.r loud, besides cntiHlng tho ponder to burn almost liitiintly. In Its origi nal consistency tho powder Is slow burning, thus in v ng to tlio projo'tlle nt ilr-t a slow mo tion, which Is gradually Increased until tho mill volloiis initial velocity of '.'.tiitii fnet Is at tained. It Is confidently oxrocted that somo eheiuical lngrodlcnt will bo discovered which v III render tho powdor Impervious to niols- oMtYf'ualn ''nU9 " ' romlD ludem'ltol' a11 Tho great strength of the new stylo or pow der used In a musket ot 45-c.ilibio Muttons the ball nnd roughs tho boro of tho gun. To use tho powder effectively it has beon found necossnrv to lino tho barrel with n hl-'h grade orMeel nnd nleo rodnco thu boro. This will docre.v-e the weight considerably, and by sub stltutlug a now; barrel the oidlnnry mechunism of the hpriuglleld lock could Io u-ed. This mny bo done for Ihe proaunt. but ultimately tlinnholourmyand tho marines of tho navy for tho nrruv; furnishes the navy with lis small nrmsi will be armed with magazine guns, ino armies ot all turopjnn countries aro armed with magalne guns of small calibre. ihe cost of trio rtDrinellold gun Is HJ.13. lhere nro now about KHI.OOii in ti'o In tills country.

Tin cost t Usuo this whole number Immediately would ho enor mous, but tho polley of tho dep.iriment will bo to rearm tip regiments singly, a'ld as con venience will normtt. The militia fund nnnu oilynpproprlntod is Si.lkiO.uuu. (nit of this sum the Mnto troojis will gradually ray for then new linn. It Is estimated that there win bono ueed for nn extra appropriation to enable tuo socreiury m carry out this projoct. except perhaps a small sum to i-ecuro ma chinery to mako tho parts necesi-ary for ilia iiiagalnepf tho gnu. Tho Mirlnutlelrt mus kets will all bo returned to tho War Depart merit, both from tho regular army .-.nd tho state troops. Those ma bo mild to romo other country, or bo hold in ro-orvo In cn'-o the exi gencies of affalri doinand the arming of u large body ol men. ...Not only will the muskets bo ehnno-nit. hut tnetiatllng. Hotctiki-s. and Malm guns will Have to lie remodellod to conform to the stand ard calibre of 30. This will bo neeesiuy. be causo tho ammunition used for tho muskots Is also iibod for the machine guus. In all of the experiments made with the smoke'oss powdor the Ordnance Bureau as sorts that tbo most unatls.nciorv was the test oitheLllswoith powder. There Is no morilin tlio invention whatevor. nnd It is declared to be the grossoU kind of fraud. Ily perfecting the smokoles powder another gt eat diflk-ulty will bo obviated In firing on shipboard, t'ommnnder llnrber, of the nuvy. hays that lit tho Immlmrdment of Alexandria in tho beginning of the aotlon there was n stilt breeze, but altera low rounds the wind died put completely, nlnl tho snips were enveloped tu a den-e cloud of Muoke.
