If The selection of Mr. Hnon McLacohlim D delegate to the Dsmocratlo Stnt Con- H rentton from tbe First Assembly district of Jf Kings county Is significant. It Indicates U , that thero U to bo no faltering or swor vine Eg on tho part ol the Kings count Democracy I from tho most loyal support of AT.ritED 0. Chapix as the candidate who should be .; nominated for Oovernor. To his candidacy Mr. McLacohlw Is strongly committed, nd he would soarcely consent to be a mom 'J berof the delegation without being assured ; that his views In this mattor were the Tlews of all hla associates. It Is to be noted that the advocates ot tho ! nomination or another candidate than Mr. Chakjj have carefully abstulncd from auy discussion of the comparative lit nesa of their favorite. They simply sty i the Btate demands Flowiu, und there- foro It is useless to talk about anybody else. We do not understand tlut Kings county complains of this attitude on the part or , anybody except the Oovernor ; but the po3l- tlon of Mr. MoLAUom. appears to bo that the Governor gave to Kings county a promise 't of hta sunport for Mr. Canrut, and that 2 Kings county Is not receiving It. If such be tho fact, tho displeasure ot tho Jj Brooklyn Democracy Is only natural. Gov- i' ernor Hii,Li has boen strong In Kings coun- J ty when lie needed ettongth. Tho roturn asked Is nothing In the nature ot pafronago i or the exercise ot official power. It Is elm- ply the exortlon of personal Inlluonco by tho expression of personal preference In regard ' to the selection ot a candidate fur Governor by the Domocratlo Stala Convention. And In whow behalf do the Urookiyn t Dfrnocratt ask this ? For no mere poll is ticlan with more ambition than Intcl j lect, but for a man ot araplo experience In public affairs, lofty political Ideals, cloar ) headed, prontlcal common sonsr business 5- sagacity, and the hlgb03t personal Integrity. c And yet they aro to bo whistled down the wind, forsooth, bee tuso " tho State demands ? I'LOWElt"! If tho Btati demands Flower It will mot 2 certainly have hlra, but. like tho forty thou- j' sand Cornishmpn, Hcnn McLACnni.iv and f liis associate) aro going to Stratojca to x know tho reason why.

Why the Havrailans Kejerted the Treaty 1 1'roposcil by Jlr. IJlulne.

It seoms that for (ho mis cnulagoofthatpiojcct wo nio Indebted to Iho Inlluonco of tho CunuUlan Dominion Mbtutely brought to boar In tho light quar ters by tho late Sir John Macdonald, It will be tecalled that tho supplementary piovlslonsto the reciprocity treaty of 1870, which were added In 1837 under the Cleve land Administration, gno the United Mutes the exclude light to establish and t fortify h innl station in tho ll.iwnlian I lslunda-1'cnil IInilr Umii,' di'nU'iiatetl for tho purpose. Hut tho cnntliiiiaiico of this exclusive right vr.ia lu be limlt'.'d ly llio ' duration of the treaty. Mr. ELArrn dcslrod to mako tho cession ot Pearl Harbor permanent; and such a privi lege, togolher with an agreement that Hawaii Bhould enter Into no treaty engage ments with other powers without tho pre vious knowledge of tho United States, were embodied In the new convention recom mended to the nawallan Government by Mr. Carter. Its Minister at Washington What was known as tho Beforrn party was then In power at Honolulu, and its Cabinet earnestly endeavored to securothe signa ture of Kalakaua to tho amended treaty. According to tho writer In tho Jttvine of Revieva these efforts would undoubtedly have been successful but for the Interposi tion ot Canadian Influences through the agency of the Hawaiian Attornoy-General. Yankee ascendancy In Hawaii Is obnoxious to the Canadians an shutting them out from the Australian trade, and being In general detrimental to the commercial Interesta of British Columbia, nnd especially of tho Canadian Pacific liallw.iy. It happenod that while the negotiation ot the new treaty was pending tho Hawaiian Attorney-General, Mr. Asnronn. who was a Canadian, got leavo -t absence to visit homo. While li Canada ho was In close confcienco with Sir John Macdonald nnd became a guest of Proslder.t firnriinN of the Canadian Pactllo Hallway. Upon his return o Honolulu he nstonlshed his colleagues by throwing his utmost Influence agalnstthcm, with tho result that the King ultimately re fused to sign the proposed treaty. Tho reason subsequently given In the legisla ture by Mr. Asitror.D for his coureo was that to surrender the right to make treaties with other powers without eupervlslon by the Unite! States was a snrrender of Inde pendence. It was also, ho .iddcd, peculiarly Inexpedient as precluding some advanta geous commercial arrangements with Can ada, which he would presently communicate. What the Canadian propositions were, Is still unknown to tho public. It Is manifest, however, that both tho United States and the Hawaiian Islands have been damaged by Canadian Interposition. Tho United States aro left without any guarantee of perrannent influence, for tho cession of Pearl Harbor lo terminable with the treaty making 1L Tho Uawallans, on the other hand, through tho tremendous drop In the price of sugar In tho American markets, find themselves thrust down from the Im mense special advantages which, since 18TC, had conbtltutcd their main source ot wealth. Had tho treaty bean concluded, tho Hawallans would have lost nothing by tho freo Inflow ot sugar from Cuba and Drazll Into the United States. They would havo occupied precisely tho same position as that held by the sugar growers of Louisi ana. Tor It will bo nmembered that, In re turn for tho desired concessions, the United States promised to give Hawaii full partici pation In tho bounties granted to American producers of sugar. Those bounties tho Hawallans hue lost, and they have gained absolutely nothing In exchange for them fiom Canada. Some Comments on tho Republican IMatform. A cupvny examination of tho apponl which tho republican Stato Convention has Just niado to tho olectorsof Kew York shows a number of remdrkablo omissions which may readily bo supplied by any one familiar with recent political history. To begin with, tho ItepubllcanB tell us that they " adhere to tho principles on which tho national 'victory was won In 18SS." How about tho principles on which tho State election was lost by tho ltepubllcnns In that ear.' They "commend the wisdom, patriotism, and purity of tho Admlnlstiatlon of Presi dent HAititibON." which "commands the confidence and ie9pect of tho American peo ple by Its Intelligent, efficient, and sngaclous conduct ot the public business In all the de partments." Illustration omitted: Tho com bination of business with patriotism exem plllled by the conduct of tho Hon. John WANAMAKEn, Postmastu-General lu Wash ington and shopkeeper in Philadelphia. Eighth icbolution: "Wo approve tho speedy construction of tho Nicaragua Canal under American charter, by American enter prise, nnd with American capital, as essen tial to national defence and to tho Interests of Inter-Stato commorco and tho trade of tho continent." This wo take to bo nn approval of tho unconstitutional charter granted by Congress to the Maritime Canal Company of Nicaragua. It Congress can Incorporate a company to construct a ship canal In Central A merlca, It can incorporate one to undertake a similar enterprise In Kamtschatka. Hut the Republican party have no greater caro about obedlenco to tha organic law than was Implied In tho Hon. Tist Campbell's question: "What's the Constitution be tween friends ?" In tlio thirteenth resolution tho Conven tion rcafllnns " tho Republican party's favor to thorough, genuine reform In tho civil ser vice," and commends the national Adminis tration for giving effect thoreto undor tho existing law. A notable omission In this resolution Is tho fulluro to refer to tho Hon. Joel B. Ekiuisdt, Into Collector of tho Port of New York, a person who can fur nish ull confirmatory ovidenco that may bo needed on the subject. 'I ho wording of tho resolution relating to the liquor nuostlon Is peculiar: "We favor ronipiolieusUe and cfflelont excise legisla tion for Kiting local option by counties, tonne, and clllp, and restriction by taxa tion In such localities ns do not by option exclude the llijuor trafllc." This Is meant to convey tho Impression to tho caroless reader Unit tho Republican party Is oppos.nl to tlio liquor trutllo, but upon analysis It will bo soon to moan only that some sort ot license feo shall bo exacted In those locali ties whero a majority of tho voters are not in favor ot prohibition. Nothing Is said about whether the license shall bo high II ccimoorlow license. In the resolution doallng with tho quos .Ion of munlclpil government tho Conven tion rciommonds tlio adoption of an amend ment to the Constitution requiring the pas sage of a uenoral bill for the government ot cities. Thero Is no need of nnyamendmont to tho Constitution to empower the legis lature to pass such a bill. If the people elect romosentatlves who aro In favor ot omeas uroof tlila kind, they have nothing to do but to enact It. Finally the Convention denounces what it calls the unpatrlotlo effort of the Governor and Assembly to place this Btate In an un friendly attitude toward the World's Fair, and Insists upon " tho necessity for nn exhi bition by tho Stato In keeping with its in dustrial supremacy In tho nation." Wo nro not luformoil, however, how the Republicans stand upon the question of allowing Chicago to tako five millions of dollars out ot the national Treasury to help along the great Exhibition, A resolution on this subject In tha State Convention would have been just as appropriate and far mora important than w hut It had to say about tho Nicaragua C'aiml. Hut it li tolerably safo topiedlet, without any present do;lniatlon on tho sub ject from tho Grand Old Party, that Its rep icsenlativc'j In the next CVngrwi will favor I the flve-mllllon-dollar grab, while their sev eral Btate Conventions all Insist tipon re lieving tho peoplo from tho oppressive bur dens of taxaUon by which they aro beset Bnmmary of the Republican platform at EocheJter: Words, words, wcrdsl Springer to the Front. Tne Hon, William M. SmtNann of Illi nois evldenUy has not been consulted by tho gentlemen who Intend to ask Congress tn voto to Chicago nn unconstitutional loan of $5,000,000 to enable that town to carry on tho Columbian I'nlr. When the modest re quest reaches the House of Representatives It will doubtles encounter the Kern and spirited opposition of this Jeffersonlan Democrat. In the llrst place, Mr. Brorsoni Is dis tinctly pledged against any such measure of legislation ns Is now proposed by his fellow clUzens ot Illinois. The record Is plain, and SrniNCEn Is no mnn to go back on his promises. Speaking In behalf of tho people of Chicago, less than twenty months ego, he declared with scornful emphasis: "Wrll ait t moil tr from ConrTMi. (least what wtltba rtinlroit forlba tralldtnr aid Hhlbltaoftb OoTtrnmtnt. f Ita rr ill bundrtC Uoaiand dollar! will bt arjj.l. Mr tlill " Tint Chicago should evsr turn up as a beggar, that Chicago could ever fall to per form her part of tho contract with the Fed einl Government, wero Ideas which Mr. KrniNorn repudiated as insults to tho great city In whoe behalf he spoke. " Their honor is pledged," ho exclaimed, pointing across a thousand miles to the Columbian enthusiasts who stood ready with $23,000,000 cash, "their monsy is pledged. Does nny gentleman on this floor believe that these honorable and responsible gentlemen havo been playing with Congress; that they have come here as confldenco men to docclvo us 1" Dafore the lightning flashes of Indigna tion that darted from Jlr. Smiinueb's eyes, every doubter ot Chicago's honor and sin cerity quailed. Nobody arose In the House to assert that Chicago was playing a confi dence game, or attempting to obtain a World's Fair on false pretences. If nny man had dared to suggest such a thing, he would have had to account for his words to the Hon. William M. BPBiNOF.n of Illinois. Hut Mr. BrRiNOER's record on the ques tion of Government loans to World's Fair managers goes further back than February, 1890. When the bill appropriating $1,500,000 In aid ot tho Centennial Exhibition at Phila delphia was before tho Torty-fourth Con gress In tlio early months of 1870, SPitiNOEn was there, too, to oppose It. We quote his searching words on that occasion : " Wbtla I am anxlooi tor tba foil mccaii ot this Can tcnnlal Exhibition, at tha aama tlma I rttard thU bill aiilmplr oropoililon f rlaca In tba traamrr or tha Ilnanca Board l.&oo,0 0 to b dlrtdtd am on tha atoekholdtri alter tbla Exhibition la complated. If w paai thli bill, thar will bara I.5QO.OIO mora to dlTlda: It d.nst auilt. tbr wl'l bara Sl,5o.ux tau. Wa bare farmad out Ibli Exhibition to a corporation which ! rich anooab to iT In own way, and Is to racalra all the adTantagss and racatpta of tha Exhibition. After tho failure of a movement, led by Mr. Holuan of Indiana, to kill the uncon stitutional bill by striking out the enacting clause, Mr.BrnixoER offered an amendment providing that in tho settlement of nlTatrs the United States should bo entitled to Its $1,300,000 before a cent went to ony prlvnto subscriber or stockholder. His amendment was adopted; but when the bill thus amended by Mr. SrnrNaEn came to a vote, bringing up the general question of a Gov ernment loan, Unvoted dead against It, his own precautionary amendment and all. Let It be added, to tho everlasting honor of tho great Stato of Illinois, that ot her nineteen Representatives In Congress at that tlmo not lcs than fifteen voted with William M. Smis-ann ngalnst tlio Gov ernment loan of $1,500,000 to the Philadel phia World's Fair. This Is why we feel ourselves safe la as suming that when the humiliating and preposterous demand of Chicago for Gov ernment aid to the amount of $5,000,000 Is discussed In Congress, Sfrinoer ot Illinois will be amonz the flrct to denounce the pro posed appropriation and to help to defeat It One of the most observed States In the Union Is Kansas as she emerges from the twlstluaattons of the Farmers' Alllanc. and It is worth noting tht a correspondent of tht A'an.tai Citu Ttrnn expresses th opinion that the man who will appear at tha head of the Kansas Republican partr at Its lollillflcatlon will be the Hon. Oeoeoe T. ANTHONr, elacted Governor of the btate In 1870. Ivoalls has Dot recovered from tba blow of his defeat last win ter. Senator Plumb exhibited far too tremu lous and compromising a spirit while the Al liance was pouring hot shot into his partr to post any longer as a leader; and with these two statesmen turned aiido, Oovernor Ax T'JCXT Is expected at tbs front. The raln-corapelling experiments of Mel-sour.vr- In Wyomtne are not carried on at the expnnre of the Government, as those of Drtzn roi.Tii In Texas are. Melboukne's experi ments are obeap; DarcxroBTn's are costly. Iinrr.NTor.Tn wants an extra appropriation from Conizress to continue bis experiments; bnt he will not be anymore successful as a Treasury eoropeller than he has been as a ruin compellcr. Wo wolcomo to this city all the delegations that come here from various parts of the coun try to boo'c their respootlre towns or to raise an Interest In their local exhibition!. 0'hey can ofttlmea got money la New York to hslp things along, and they ean here find people ready to assist them otherwise, in ways that are advantageous to all the parties concerned, The managers nta large number of Southern and Western builnoss enterprises always look to New York for the encouragement which New York is pretty lure to be willing to clvt to worthy applicants. Thero arc plenty of excursions yet to be enjoyed this autumn to pleaiant seaside re sorts not far from the city-excursions to Coney Islund, Olen Island, and Long Branch, to Manhattan Deach, Itockaway Beach, dl 1 other Ilka places. There are also excursions up the Hudson and along the Bound and still onward. Then there are a good many of the rural botols In (he mountains and elsewhere that will be kept opon for week ret. Seldom Lor Is a month in which many people like to take an excursion out of town, and tboyftet benefit from It. In the autumn of the rear New Yorkers enjor many privileges of the kind we are speaking of, and nil visitors to the city are welcome, to take advantage of them.

Since his retirement from the Chairmanship of the Democratlo Btate Committee Mr. Herrick has had one ab sorbing ambition, and that Is to be elected to a sent on the bupreme Court bench In the Third Judicial district The district Is made up ot the counties ot Albany. Ilensselter, Co lumbia, Snlllvan, Schoharie, Greene, and CI ster, and the delegates to be sent to the Judi cial Convention, which meets In Albany on Hept 23, will be one from each Assembly dis trict, or fourteen in nil. Mr. Herrick, as a political leader and man ager ot the Albany county political machine, has persistently opposed Gov. Ulll in the In terests of GiorerCloveland, and, conseouent ly. the friends of the Governor will try to pre vent his nomination as Justice ot the Supreme Court. From Albany courity Herrick will have three of the four delegates the one from the Fourth Assembly district, who will be accepted as Its representative being an antl-Uerrick roan.
