IB Kints In the Convention.
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

x know tho reason why.

wallnu Isluudu, llm miter of which, speak
ing evidently from llrsl-hand observa
tion, seta forth boiue facts lilthei to un
known, or nt nil events unheeded, io-
epoctlng the rejection of the trenly propos :d"
by Mr. Dlaini:. 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
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
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
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
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.

sor to the late Daniel Manning as the leader of
tha Albnnr county Democracy, is fast ap
jiroachlng his Waterloo. Since his retirement
from the Chairmanship of the Democratlo
Btate Committee Mr. Herrick has had one ab

Third Judicial district The district Is made

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

three of the four delegates the one from the

of the delegates to the Convention which

and the anti-Hill contingent reassembled und
passed a resolution instructing thnhchohnrie

Earlr la August the Teachers' Committee of
the Faterson Doard of Education requested
Miss Homer, a teacher tn Public School 15, and
Miss Ansa Law, a teacher In School 14, to send
In their resignations on the ground that they
were Incompetent teachers. One of the allega
tions was that tho teachers did not maintain
discipline. The women attended a meeting of
the committee and protested against Its action.
Miss Law Is excitable, and she said unpleasant
thing. The committee was obdurate. The I
women consulted lawyer, who advised them '
that the request for their resignation wan not '
equivalent to dismissal, and that when school I
began ther should attend and take charge of
their clasies as usual.

to the Inevitable, saying that Mis should be on
