i Tim Deepening of the Canals
Last year an amendment to tho Const
J I tution of the State of New York author
r I hdl the Legislature to Improve the canals
S wan adopted by I majority of 115343
i votes which was a majority 32000 larger
I t T than any other amendment received at that
c time The Legislature accordingly by 83
n yets against 31 nays iu the House and SO
I against 4 in the Senate passe 1 bill at
t 4 thu lat session which provides for the Issue
of seventeenyear four per cent bonds t
I the extent of 0000000 for canal im
J If I provement and it was signed by the Gov
If I ernor Since acts creating a debt exceed
j ing SI000000 must b approved by popu
U lir vote iu order to take effect this canal
r measure must b submitted to ballot at
t 1 the next election
The llrst inquiry therefore is as to what
t Is I to U done with the money The answer
I I Is I that it will h laid out in deepening tho
p Krio < mat which runs 32 miles from
11 HufTiilu to Albany connecting Lake Erie
I with the Hudson the Oswego 88 miles
J from Oswego to Syracuse joining Lake On
t 1 tario with tho Erie Canal and the Cham
plain 01 miles from Whitehall to West
Troy joining the Champlain nnd Hudson
1 L 1 Thu two former canals are each seventy
1 I p i feet wide on the surface fiftysix feet on the
i bottom and seven feet deep theChamploin
P Canal Is fifty feet on the surface thirtyflve
1 on the bottom and live feet deep For over
thirty years little has been done to Improve
the Erie and Oswego canals except doubling
the length of some locks on the Erie and
Mltand sediment have s collected that they
are not considered good for boats drawing
more than six feet while the Champlain
Canal accommodates boats drawing four
feet eight inches
The locks on all three canals are 110 J feet
1 long by 18 wide thus accommodating boats
i feet by 17 and such boats Oi the Erie
and Oswego can carry loads of 240 tons
I each The plan to bo voted upon is t excavate
I cavate these canals ono foot and t raise the
JI banks another foot using the material
taken out where this is possible This will
i make the Erie and Oswego canals nine feet
deep throughout except at the locks cul
verts nnd other costly structures and there
thu foundations will not b disturbed but
tho banks will be raised one foot making
the total depth there eight feet Tho Cham
plain Canal will hu made seven feet deep
throughout by excavations
This then Is what It Is proposed to spend
the money for nnd tho cost has been estimated
mated at between 8000000 and 0000
000 perhaps ninetenths of It going t
Jnlmrcrs and masons along tho routes
Twenty years ago Governor TILDKV recom
mended a somewhat similar plan but less
extensive to tho Legislature and even eight
1 years earlier ho had thus described It In tho
Constitutional Convention of 18U7

Other opponents of the project ttrgo thnt
there Is no reason why the State should b
taxed for helping tho grain of tho Wet to
bo carried still moro abundantly to Europe
over Its free waterways Yet that transpor
tation clearly helps the terminal points nt
Murrain anil NoW York and the moro of tho
State tax that Is put on the commercial
tho less Is tho
cities from their prosperity les
share of It levied on the farmers
It Is sometimes said that this project Is A
mere makeshift and practically throwing
of because what U really
aWAY money UclIKO II rell
needed by tho Vest Is n tlcepwater canal
able to accommodate grainladen InkejwIiiK
nnd even oceangoing ships As to that It
Congress chooses t build such I canal nt
nu appalling cost It Is another matter
Certainly New York would not furnish It
free for grain ships big enough to go to
Kuropo without using thu present terminal
and transfer facilities nt Xcw York Yet
perhaps tho less expensive Improvement now
proposed might forestall the enormously
costlier project and by bringing tho canals
up to the demands of modern times M the
railroads I have been brought up might make
the deep waterway needless

11 an American Sunday Is whnt wo all

was referred to a committee which per
pended for n time and then produced tho
Hublolned resolution
Wu heartily commend the action of the police
authorities or New York city In closing the lon on
Sunday and note with plraiure that the Ilijuordealers
la taking official action by whlcbtheypromlM t obey
the law ala assist In Its enforcement have shown
mere good senio and honesty than the newspapers
and the men wbo bare counselled acslost obedience t
law and order by Inveighing againSt public officials
for doing their sworn duty The Question of open
saloons on Bundsj Is not political question but Is
one the determination of which will to a large ex
tent measure the moral tone or the Empire State
We believe In the American Sunday and that the
traditions o the hepubllcan party favor the preser
Tatlon of all those conditions calculated lo bring
peace prosperity and happiness to the masse s of the
eopls
poplWe
We should have supposed that the Repub
lican party as a great moral party would
have been particularly anxious to settle tho
question of opening the saloons on Sundays
It that was a moral question but the Re
publican Leaguers did not rare Jn tnke it
up They seem to have thought that there
were more Republican votes in the Ameri
can Sunday and in the beautiful but some
what vague promise Implied In the preser

bring peace l prosperity and happiness to
the masses of the people Will the

Why should It not b f The rural Repub

New York should b different from Sunday
In West Hurlev Long hypocrisy In regard
gard to tho excise laws has made it pretty
nearly Impossible for the New York Re
publicans to say what their real intentions
and beliefs about them are Local option
might win here but then It might lose In
the country districts and any way It would
b an application of the hated Democratic
doctrine of homo

An English Layman on tho Prospect
of tbo Iapacy
I Is some years since uu article In any
English periodical baa attracted more atten
tion than the paper on the position and alms
of the Papa contributed t a late number
of the Furtnlahtlu Ilcvlcw by Capt J W
GAMUIEU of the British navy The subject
of the essay Is the fact not less remarkable
than unexpected that In our day there
ihould h an unmistakable renewal of
strength and vitality in the CaLhoun
Church I fact all the moro striking becausa
the substrata both moral and material on
which rested the power of Rome had ap
parently been so completely swept away A
t render Improbable such I resurrection
The former foundations of the Papal au
thority were three materially the temporal
power morally a world more or less ac
cepting dogmatic teaching and lastly the
almost universal Ignorance as t tho sanc
tion upon which tho Papal claims were
based Within tho memory of men now
living all these foundations have seemed to
b annihilated Nevertheless after the lapse
of a few years we behold to our astonish
ment the Church of Rome making
great strides to the recovery of all
that had been lost The recuperative
process Is going on at I nato which I
continued must within n measurable space
of time tend considerably to change tho
existing state of affairs not only In Europe
but In the United States and the South
American republics Whether the energy I
behind this process comes as thu Roman I
Church believes from tho silent coil Irre
sistible power of the teaching of the Gall
lean accompanied by I fresh sitU direct
guidance from above Is I not a matter which
Capt GAMIUKIt assumes t discuss Ills
endeavor Is to ascertain thu
acertln mun
dane causes nt work and conspicu
ously among them one of which the
Catholic Church Itself takes cognizance
Wu refer to the fact that thousands of
right thinking men loathe the general de
moralization which must follow socialism
anarchism and all other lams which
instil the doctrine of public plunder fly
their exumplo and their precepts these
men are leavening the masses which U loft
to themselves would enforce tho doctrine
of rapine with the knife and bomb
To control this movement tutu
eUltrol thll moemeltl nlmof the
Catholic Church and Its representatives
hold that they are in a better position to do
to
this than the btaUMimii who U
tlll Ihl btltfSmll always
moro or less the puppet of faction or than
thu member of I legislature national or
local who Is paid l for his services and
IB therefore no longer a free agent
It Is patent Indeed to any ole who reads
tho dally papers that thu Vatican U

important rOle
Hut what lirvs this English Inymnn t say
with regard to tho crucial question of tho
Popes temporal power P Capt GAMHIKH
believes that nil schemes for establishing a
temporal power In Malta Cyprus or any
where else outsldo of the Eternal City will
b scouted for neither this Pope nor the
next nor any successor will relinquish tho
Idea of again reigning In HOle lhls In
his opinion his become an srtlclo of faith
n dogma which no bull could strengthen I
and ct aside But how
al1 no Popo can let Ishll
from the view point of practical politics
can tho relstabllshmcnt of tho temporal
power In Homo bo brought about f Tho
answer given to this question Is thnt tho
unity or cohesion of Italy has been greatly
Imperilled during thom last few years by in
numerable disintegrating processes which
no legislation can avert by Its deplorably
had government and by the poverty nnd
misery of tho people crushed by taxation
The peace and contentment of the old days
are gone Tho Italian peoplo believe that
they are robbed and plundered In a word
Italy In tho estimation of those most vital
ly I concerned Is rotten t tho core a totter
ing State destined to collapse at tho first
clash of European armies
Tho Vatican waits then for what 1 I
bides Its time until the bubble bursts Till
the great war comes HO long foretold when
Europe will resolve Itself Into Its natural
elements When Italy leaning upon Eng
land which shall once again prove a broken
reed will have ceased to 0 anything but 1
geographical expression when Franco shall
have extended her frontiers along the Marl
time Alps to Genoa when Venice shall
be once moro Austrian with Lombard
thrown in to compensate for the loss
of Bosnia Incorporated In a new State
with Hungary all when King HUM
IIKIIT shall have been relegated t reign In
his ancestral Turin Then tho rest of Italy
may form somo kind of n republic with Its
capital at Florence leaving Home and 1
possible twenty or thirty miles radius of
tho Campagna for the Pope Here such Is
tho forecast tho head of the Roman
Catholic Church may reign as nn Inde
pendent sovereign over 1 neutral State
This small spot of earth dedicated to
tho service of GOD would according to the
hypothesis h under tho guarantee of nil
tho powers would require no lines of cir
cumvallation soldiers and and
cumalaton no oltler no ships 111
Rome would become what It hail been with
1 brief Interval for nearly seventeen hun
dred years the home of the head of the
Church Catholic

Is this a dream 1 I It be one It Is strange
that it should have been seriously discussed
by every diplomatist In Europe To stu

Exaggeration
There must surely b an error in the de
spatch from Saratoga printed by our con
temporary the Timer about the address
mOo before the American Social Science
Association by Prof FKASCIS WAYLAND
Dean of the Yale Law School We quote a
sentence from the despatch I
Ills address referred to habitual criminal about
8000000 of whom be said were at Isriw In tblscoun
try outlaw who were lull or such crimes a < high
way robbery train robbery and train wrecking
Without doubt the figures here given
are far away from the facts In the case
We believe that onetenth of the num
ber of criminal outlaws of the kind here
spoken of would be ten or twenty or
thirty times lore than the total lum
ber of them In the United States The
whole vote of tho country at the last Presi I
dential election was 12000000 which con
stituted over DO per cent of tho able
bodied population anti it Ir an Intoler
able exaggeration to say that onefourth
of that number of men belonged in tho
category Indicated In the report of ProC
WAVLAXD8 address I we had 3000000
of outlawed criminals among us society
would b In 1 state of anarchy and no
mans life or property would b worth uu
hours purchase There would be neither
law nor order neither liberty nor industry
That favorite sentence of some newspapers
Crime Is rampant would have a signifi
cance that it never yet had in any part of
the United States
There are no statistics of tho number of
criminal outlaws the census contains no
report upon them no existing document
furnishes Information about them When
any man says how laDY there are ho can
but make a guess and if ho Is not a
thoughtful man ho Is more than likely t
make a very wild guess
Take for example the State of New
York which contains nearly one eventh of I
the population of tho country have wo I
hero 428000 criminal outlaws which
would bo our proportion of the I100000 f
Have wo even 1000 of them t Have wo
onefifth of a thousand t
Exaggeration is I defined by WKIISTKII
as representation beyond tim truth I
II a bnl thing It Is l Immoral It II danger
OUSt it Is injurious it is a sign
of mental degeneration
Wo have a great deal of It In recent
years wu have often heard of the millions of
tramps tho millions out of work and tho
starving millions or pauperized millions
Let the men who talk thus cut down the
number by nlnotenths nnd they will h so
much nearer tho truth Wo never had any
where near a million tramps In this country
Prof FUANCIS A LAND toll the Amer
ican Social Science Association that all the
criminal outlaws ought to bo subjected t
perputual Imprisonment That would truly

kind Hut where are tho prison

IliiLADELtMifA Hfpt HThe recent victory
of KonutorCJuay Is likely to result 111 the < otC
of tho lion James Donald Cameron for another
term as Senator I now teems absolutely cer
tain that Henntor Quay will oppose the Selec
tion of Cameron to the Honntu
At no time during tho harultohand contest
Just ended did Cameron Indicate In any man
I ner t any person In Pennsylvania his tlolro to
eco Senator Quay succeed On tlio contrary
Cameron was not only Indifferent but ho ran
away from tho fight not caring whether Quay
came out on top or was overborne and smaihed
by tliu Mairce and Martin combine
This Is I not the first time that Cameron has
run away from 1 contest In which Quay staked
everthing During tho year 1888 Matthew
Stanley Quay determined to rim for State Trees
uicr as a step toward nts election to this United
Htntos Senate Ho consulted Senator Cameron
freely In regard to the plan Cameron strongly
advised against It oven gnlnit so far as to tell
Quay that ho would surely be defeated If he
went before the people
Senator Camerons advise was disregarded
Quay made a most spirited canvass and won on
pretty much the same line as two weeks ago
Throughout the campaign for tho nomination
Cameron doubted the ability of Quay to succeed
nt the general election It would be a great mis
take t nominate Mm as ho expressed It
Tho day following thoConvcntlon which nom
inated Col Quay for State Treasurer Senator
Cameron showed his feoilnif In the matter by
leaving harrisburg for the Iaclllc coast and re
maining there from May of that year until the
day of thu general election In November
I was with Col Quay on the Snturilny follow
ing Ills triumphant election as State Treasurer
and shall never forget the expression of Ids to
n hn asked What Is I the distance between
Los Angeles nnd HnrrlsbureV tpon
UnrrJburl my i
making answer that It was but 3200 miles
Quay followed It up by asking What was
my majority and upon uiy reminding him
that It was about 43000 with look of con
tempt that only Col M S Quay I I capable of
I expressing he said Anil Cameron was 1000
miles away from the Inception to the end of the
contest and bad there been a few hour delay
of his train ho would not have reached home In
time to rote for me
The victorious State Treasurer felt like top
pling tho House of Cameron over at that time
but ho forgave Camerons timidity Again
Cameron takes himself cut of the Suite leav
ing his colleague to fight his battle single
handed This time be will not b forgiven by
Senator Quay I Cameron expects to b re
elected to tbe Senate It must be without anv
belli whatever from Quay Cameron cannot
justly complain If Senator Quay gives him just
the same kind of support as be gave Quay for I
Stale Treasurer In 1883 arid for State Chair
man In 1805
Senator Quay will not go to Los Angeles or
Bar Harbor during the next Senatorial cam
paign In Iennsjhanli but ho maybe fishing
for tarpon among the everglades of Florida Just
about tho time the next Senator 1 voted for by
tire Pennsylvania Legislature
Again I have spent several hour with hen
atm Juav Hinrn bin last Irlllinnh Anil thorn wss
I force nnd significance In his terse remark I If
Cameron Is returned to tho Senate It will be a
the candidate oft he comblnu which tried MI bard
I tn defeat me for State Chairman Ho Is their
i i candidate foil bus been throughout the contest
I nnd they will reCIcct him If they can

WAHIIINOTOV Sept 8 u 1 Is I not generally
known but nevertheless It Is true said Secre
tary Morton that the silver dollar advocated I
by tho free silver men and popularly styled
the dtilitr of the dad < le R evolved on and
from n gold bals According to Irof Sumner
of Yale thin mo < t Important Information con
tained In the Mint Itrport of Alexander Ham
ilton In the year ITtll Is that the actual unit uf
account In America had been M > i grains of fine
gold In the mean time the English standard
had become fine gold The parity of tills Im
nzlnary cold dollar with gold sterling was
onedollar finals M 4id
This quotation Is found nn pages HI and IO
of volume II of The Financier nnd Finanroi
of hit American Hevolutlon On Jan T ITS
Robert Morris propocd that there should bo a
Mint to which Cnngr creed At about that
time It suits itsu cnialnti that his ratio tif comntd
gold and coined silver In the Cnlted Stale was
nearly 1 to 1SU In England It was 1 lo 1371 111
France 1 to 14458 In Spain 1 to 1483 Then
a careful estimate of the coined and uncoined
gold and slUrr In Merling and New York cur
rency was tabulated It was ascertained that
the bust rptclllcatlon of a dollar was U454 i
grain of line gold
The report of 1T80 shows n very much I
closer study says Irof Surantr of the sub
Ject nnd better mastery of It than the report nf
Hamilton on the vanit i subject Ihe I actual
unit during the oliutunary period had beum
244 grains nf Diane gold for n dollar At that
time the ratio In America was annul lo nf silver
to 1 nf gold Therefore multiplying V411 grains
by 11 he eot 371V grains of pure silver for the I
dollar Thus it Is atldint that tbn silver dollar i
was evolved un and from a gold basis
