of both competitors The justice of Lord

of tho excursion boats have in pleasing their

Buffer equally except as accident transfers
the big end of disadvantage from the ono t

comes from tho owner of the boat which had
been fairly and squarely outsailed in one

Another utterance of Mr HACII In this
Wdo not alnays find the qulntessene of morality
In our criminal lansi nor should we look to pro
hllilllve statutes alone for a comprehensive standard
of moral ethics
Nevertheless we must remind Mr DACIt
that our criminal law nro potent antI op

against every man t whom their terms are
Tho opinions of Mr IlACH upon questions
In moralltynud In lawnrc undcscrvlngof no
tice hit tho allegation nrndo by him as
VicePresident of the MedicoLegal Society
that ho known that physicians wilfully
put nn eli t the life of patients by tho ad
ministration of poisonous drugs as 1 nians
of relief from suffering Is surely worthy of
the prompt attention of the medical faculty
and the officers of the law I Is hard to
understand why ho was not called to ac
count by some or the members of the Con
gress I his allegation were believed It
would alarm the community
requested Mr BAcH to furnish us with
some specific Information upon the subject
about which he spoke so glibly when before
the Congress Instead of doing that he
has offered us an argument In support of
his opinion that It Is morally right t per
petrate a statutory crime I
Vie desire him to send us the names of
some of the felons whom he says ho knows
He has publicly made a disquieting charge
the truth of which he declared to bo within
his own knowledge He cannot escape from
the responsibility which he has thus taken
upon himself
We feel sure that all honorable physicians
will Indignantly repel tho cruel accusation
which Mr BACH In his olllolal capacity has
brought against the medical profession H
is a false and Infamous accusation that any
member of tho profession would wilfully I
kill otherwise who
ki by poison or otherwle any one
may have intrusted his life t his pro
fessional care
Tho Men Via Did I
There great rejoicing In town among tho
Republican friends and partisans of the Hon
T COLLIEII PLATT They are elated a they
certainly I have reason to b over the victory
achieved by them in the primaries of Tues
day when they captured threequarters of
the district delegates to tho Itepubllcan
nominating Convention The STltoxn
BROOKFIELPUnlon League Republicans
had on their side In the battle against tho
friends of the Tloga Senator the extensive
patronage of nearly all the city departments
the active cooperation of the nonpartisan
police abundant financial aid from the anti
PIATT Republican subscription contribu
tors and no dearth of active and alert dis i
trict workers Notwithstanding these ad
vantages the PLAT mel triumphed by a
big majority and PLAT is receiving the
congratulations of those who less than a
week ago were denouncing bossism and ex
ulting in the prospect of his overthrow
Among politicians familiar with existing
conditions In this city a good share of the
praise for the PLAT victory at the Repub
lican primaries on Tuesday night Is thought
t belong fairly JACOB M PATTEKSOX aid
Republicans not generally popular with
earnest partisan Democrats hereabouts
There Is no one who knows anything of
city politics who falls t recall that pleas
ant Interview In the rooms of the Central
National Bank little less than one year ago
between Mr MritKAT then a Republican
Police Commissioner and Judge PATTER
sos not then as now a Quarantine Commis
sioner by appointment of Governor Moit
President of the Central National Bank
ali now Mayor of New York
The details of the little understanding
which afterward turned out t 0 a com
plete misunderstanding between the Re
publican candidate for Mayor and the two
representatives of the local Republican or
ganization are publicly known They were
referre t particularly in the communi
cation addressed by Police Commissioner
MURRAY to the Mayor In the second week
of May when Mr MURRAY refused t resign
as Commissioner at the Mayors request
The Issue squarely made at that time by
MURRAY was taken up with many literary
flourishes and historical reminiscences by
Gen KERWIN the other Republican Police
Commissioner In n Juxius letter of his own
t the Ohio Colonel I has divided the He
publicans of New York into two hostile
camps or groups ever since Meanwhile
against the obstacles and under the disad
vantages we have Indicated the KSAUS of
Republican politics namely CiiAlilKs and
JAPOH have been working away vigilantly
and energetically I Is now evident that
they have labored successfully

Tho School Question in DelJhIU
The question whether religion shall IM
taught in the national schools Is now pro
ducing an amount of agitation In Belgium
scarcely Inferior to that which compelled
the adoption of the new Constitution The
Radicals and Socialists who secured an ex
tension of tho parliamentary franchise
tantamount to universal MI IT rage feel
themselves lu danger of being hoist by
their own petard They would not have
demanded the electoral reform could they
have foreseen that It would give the Catho
lics a seemingly unshakable hold upon
power and that this power would he forth
with applied to the subversion of the pres
ent system of undenominational education
I Whvu Belgium hud a morurcbtrlcted ran
ch I be than any other European country
possessing parliamentary institutions the
Liberals under their wellknown hatler
M PitrKKOkiiAN took much the largest
share In shaping the national legislation
It was they who In 1871 repudiated the old
order of things under which religion was
taught In l schools and substituted 1 the
arrangement fctlll in force hereby educa
tion U freo and u iltleiiIiiI hilt iotiiil although
religion Instruction may bu Imparted tu
particular pupils nt tlm choice and liy 11
desireif their parents In this ns lu many I
other matters M I rnluhOllliAS advo
cated letting well I euougii alone but thu I
Radicals mid SocialUts ii uliiuu to der
the Catholics of the chance of even an occasional
casional accession t power Insisted against
the advice of the veteran Liberal Upon In
serting In the new Constitution nn electoral
provision which Is I as we have said Irno
tlcnlly equivalent t universal suffrage In
the subsequent general election the out
come of which was the present Chamber of
Deputies the Catholics demonstrated that
they constitute a great majority of the
electorate Belgium now his 1 Catholic
Ministry backed by n strong majority of the
Chamber anti the first use of their strength
was to provide by a timely change In the
educational law that time next generation of
voters shall receive n Catholic training
The Kducatlou bill prepared by M
SCHOILAKUT Minister of tho Interior and of
Public Instruction embodies thin minimum
of Catholic requirements on the subject
The purpose of the measure Is declared t
be t restore to religion In all primary
public schools the place of honor that belongs
longs to It of right and tho means em
ployed Is t b tho placing of tho In i
spection of the teachings of religion
and the principles of morality under
the control of tho ministers of the
various falthn This means of course
that wherever Catholics nre now In the ma
jority the supervision of the religious teach
ing will bo In the hands of priests Liberty
of conscience Is I safeguarded by u clause em
powering parents who object to the form of
religious Instruction In a given communal I
school to have their children exempted
from attendance during tho hours when
religious Instruction is Imparted
This proposed change tn the School law Is
assailed with extraordinary violence by the
Radicals and Socialists They denounce It
as In contradiction to a clause of the Bel
gian Constitution which forbids the legis
lature I to seek t pcnotraU into tho con
sciences of the cltlrens with n view to appre
ciating their conduct by their adherence to
this or that religious faith or by their pro
fession of none nt nil All they are ablu
t say however on behalf of their charge of
unconstitutionality Is that the withdrawal
of a child from the religious class at the re
quest of his parent would expose him t b
vital VM or eyed with disapprobation by
his teachers and schoolmates The Catholics
retort that the spirit of martyrdom cannot
be rife among Belgian free thinkers If such
an infinitesimal pressure their consciences
could counterbalance their desire for the Ir
religious training of their children
It Is manifest that the Catholics in Bel
gium are simply exercising that absolute
right of the majority t rule in conformity
with Its views which was so long and loudly
asserted by the Liberals when they were in
power That the Education bill will 0
passed Is taken for granted by wellinformed
observers What renders the situation peculiarly
culiarly Interesting Is the fact that in lid
glum universal suffrage should have made
Catholics masters of the legislature whereas
the reverse result has been remarked In
other Catholic countries as for Instance
France Italy and even Spain
A Populist Off His Perch
The lon THOMAS S PETIT Is the gen
tleman who has the fortune or misfortune
to b the Populist candidate for Governor
of Kentucky but he differs from any Popu
list whom we remember ever to have heard
of nor do we expect t hear again of his like
in the woebegone and vociferous cohorts of
Populism In opening hU campaign at
Owensborough last week he uttered these
words as surprising In a Populist mouth a
snow storms in the dog days
No patriot In 1 tbl broad land bas reason to
despair of his country The brightest r In Its history
Is I about to dawn Advancing civilization under the
benign system of our common schools and other
educational facilities Is doing wonders This Is I the
first 3 a within the century of our national existence
when the people have triumphed over the politicians
and the money power In their might they have
forced the financial question to the front and demand
a speedy decision In their favor The StilT and Force
bill are things of the past These deceptions must
five I lao to this living vital Issue that precedes alt
other reforms and which affects the well being of
every citizen the richest as well as the poorest
The living vital Issue Is of course the
free coinage of sliver at tho infallible and
saving ratio of in to 1 Since the Jon
PKEI JAJIN bleel as
firmly as Mr PETTIT or any other man In
the Infallibility and saving grace of that
Immortal ratio there Is no cause to follow
tho Populist candidate on that wellbeaten
road The thing In him to fill his listeners
and the rest of the world with wonder Is i
that he doesnt despair of his country He I
believes that the brightest era of our Ids I i
tory Is I about to dawn Instead of believing
that the darkest era In all history Is shroud

Mr IlEKRY M STANLEY has arrived In
this country for the pleasure and Instruction of
a trip across the continent From whet Is
known of his plans ive suspect that 8 a mem
ber of Parliament he particularly deles t
gain I the better acquaintance with Canada that
personal inspection nlTnrtli He will find Canada
a country of great possibilities whereof the advance
vance In wealth and Influence would astonish
the world If her political fortunes were linked
aa closely with ours an nature Intended We
hope he will gain a clear Insight Into the real
needs of her people and that he wilt enjoy her
magnificent mountains Homo of their grandest
aspects are to be seen from the railroad
In the recent Geographical Congress In Lon
don Mr STANLEY saw fit t criticise some state
ment that an African traveller had just made
from the platform That gentleman rising t
defend his remarks began UMr STANLEY has
his name and his deeds No one can equal him
In a large sense this Is true He has been the
most lauded and the helL abused of explorer
Hut his severest critics cannot deny that his
great achievement has placed him head and
shoulders above all other white men In Africa
I we were t sum up STANLEY In a sentence or
two we should say that he rave twothirds of
equatorial Africa t tho worlds knowledge and
t Its enterprise From the exploration of Vic
toria Xranza and the Congo to dickering with a
petty chief he never failed In anything large or
mall ho ever undertook In Africa He Is the
only man of whom Ibis can justly b said The
work be did there can never be equalled because
the opportunity will never again occur
A few learned men have said that STANLEY
as an explorer was not sufficiently scientific to
meet their requirements They forget as the
leading geographer never do that the pioneer
explorer cannot sit down In some small aR
t exhaust Its scientific aspects and yet his
work Is just n necessary and Important a
that of the scientific student who follows him
The limits of the wholly virgin field Unit Mr
STANLEY brought to Unlit are as far apart as
New York and Omaha and most of the work
be did In this vast territory has stood the test
of rigid scrutiny to this day Ills delineation of
lfiOO miles of the Congo Is I still the map of that
river Ills mapping of the Arnwlml the Ewe
the Mflnl Lakes Leopold II and Matnmba
and of scores of other geographic units still
stands He himself discovered the south
western prolongation of Victoria Nyanza which
he missed on his first visit Ills map of that
great lake has been a little curtailed on the
northeast and some roast detail like namnn
Gulf has been added but STASIKTS survey Is
still the basis of our mapping The many ex
plorers who have followed him have added
much to the geographical ethnological and
natural history detail he suoplled but have i
supplanted little His contributions to the
literature of Africa far mon voluminous than
those of any other explorer steadily grew from
first tolut In the qualltlesof scientific judgment
and accuracy and are still the chief lures of
I information of the regions treated
I Mr STANLEY Is too sanguine that great good
will yet come oat of Africa as some writers b
I lee his faith In her future has at least been a
J i matter of slow growth and the result of many
I I years of observation and experience on the
I ground for he travelled tar In Africa before he
came t believe the tropical regions would be
worth reclaiming He has lone had the fullest
confidence that welldirected
eonhllco wUdlrcle white enterprises
there will result In ample benefits for the world
and for Africa herself lie has lived to Inspire
nations with his own faith and enthusiasm To
I him far more than to anyother one man It Is
due that this fall the British nation will begin
to build 1 railroad from the coast to Central
Africa for which the taxpayers will gladly pay
To him most of all It Is I due that a new State
has arisen In tropical Africa whose brief his
tory though not free from blemish Is a wonder
ful record of progress and development a State
from which the cruel slaver has
trm ha just been
driven and In which the darkest deeds of sav
agery In universal practice a few years ago are
capital crimes today All of STANIKVS story
i his shortcomings and his blunders as well as his
colossal achievements Is on record and neither
can eulogy augment nor detraction take away
from the meed that Is his duo
I Lord DrxKAVFX Is still of the opinion
that he own tl better ship there Is no doubt
that a erla of races cnn be arranged at once
for I cup of any value he may name with a side
brtof any figure that will please him added
and that the courses vv 111 be laid at any point on
the Atlantic coast Cape Hutterns for Instance
that 1m may choose In order t escape the ex
cursion fleet
It Is I now Htld that the disposition of Eng
land u to join with our Government In an Inter
national agreement tor 1110 ucKinicuon 01 float
Ine hulks abandoned on the high seas Is due to
our monthly pilot charts According to lilt
account tho Ilrltlsh Government was disposed
not to do anything but changed Ito Ideas when
those churls showed several wrecks not far
from Its own shore In the steamer lanes
Whether this is I the fact or not I the pilot charts
have been of the create service anti have for
nlshed 1 constant stimulus to the International
task of ilearlnu the wean which I now In a
fair way of accomplishment
Kaiser WlLHEUl 1 redeemed himself on the

the third attempt and attempt Is time Iroer
term to apply to the things as they Bland was
a flat failure
Unfortunately for the rake of sport the whole
affair may be summed t up In the single word
contemptible And when one considers that the
giant stmons with all their spread of toirgcry
could be beaten hull down In one hour by an
ordinary catamaran sailed by a little boy the
question naturally arises What do they amount
t any way
Burgess 8 the first lo borrow from the Eng
llsh with a deep boat and an overhang llerrcs
boll came next abandoning the centreboard
and sticking t depth narrowness lead and the
overhanir bat at the same time producing some
thing original Watson then throw MidI his
oftdefeated model endeavored to copy Herres
hot and succeeded so well that It Is I difficult to
detect tho forgery Hut a mere copyist cnn
never create anything and the Ideal Yacht Is still
far at sea The average speed of Defender and
Valkyrie Is about twelve knots un hour not one
Inch more
Dropping for a moment their extraordinary
qualities In windward work which constitute
the whole gain which has been mode In yacht
construction during the pact twentyfive years
we refuse to believe that two and thrco miles
really make nine for a boat drawing twenty fet
of water and carrying seventyfive tons of lead
in her keeL Every old salt hereabout knows
perfectly well that the old schooners Sappho
and Enchantress on a reach certainly not on
the wind could beat the HerreshoffWaUon
monstrosities out of sliht
I Is a pity to have to say It but the truth must
b told at all hazards and that truth Is that In
any we Imvemadcon both side8of the Atlan
tic little or no Increase In the speed of our yachts

1rof K V Iovtlle who has charge of the
hutlinrluin nt the Krlctiltural Deiwrttnent
raid that It Hicnieil now lus 1 the chief difficulty
In regard to the now cereal was tho unreliability
of Its irrovvth The cnano near IitUboro hoot
Ixcn known to grow for years without tassels
Irv el
of grain Now fnr no apparent Cal It pro
ilticcil nh I enormous crop Hu thoticht that If
by contlimcil pluntlng und cultivation the cane
rnilld bo I mudv to nerd with comb regularity
them was no doubt of Its value ns a cereal In I
the tI Inns as torn oats und barley but so
little Is really known about the need of the cane
brake Unit nt present It Is a very dlfllcult mat
tor to tnitkii tiny trrtfeorthy prediction about
Its sphere of usefulness In appearance the
reuN are very much Uke oat grains except for
their size which Is two or three times greater
Time litttk In atniott an Inch In length and to
re ItiNldo I Is about 1 half an Inch long The
husk like that of some of the other cereals
becomes dry and low but tho seed remains
hnnl and is very nurreablu to the taste Thi
hanlnoHS of the wed will prevent It from de
cjilnu as rapidly its some other cereals It baa
a very high gcrnilnatliig percentage
Owing to Its auto of oats homo people havo
suggested that time cane has been crossed with
oats In the fields and brakes but It Is not b
lieved at the Agricultural Department that
this Is I the case The grain has ben kept and
panted In various Il under different condi
tions to determine the regularity with which
it win proume crops I I tne crops prove t
h regular tho value of the cane to farmers
throughout tho Smith will b inestimable
Many of tho farms and DlnnUtlons consist Dar
tlally of cane brakes and lowlying landswhich
It the util Is I found to yield regularly might all
b pat to valuable uses If crops nearly If not
quite o valuable as corn could be gathered
from land heretofore considered almost use
lss time Southern farmer would be glad to
welcome the new cereal
In tIme crop near IitUboro so large were the
tasscli that It is said some of the smaller
stalks were bowed to theground One farm
er made the ansertlon that one stalk yielded as
much as a peck of grain According to news
paper accounts millions of bushels have been
gathered for the farmers soon after the dis
covery took advantage of the opportunity and
put all of their hands at work threshing out
tin grain which they have stored upend will
feed to their cattle In the winter
City UcTenpen StOOOOO Lee Thas Had
Iteen Computes
then this years budget of receipts and ex
penses won made up some months ago In antici
pation of the close of the fiscal year the citys
revenue from various sources other than taxes
was estimated nt 3000000 When how
ever the Hoard of Aldermen came to pass upon
the appropriations for the departments and
to provide for them by levying taxation It
was found that the actual receipts for the
jear from ordinary revenues would bo 400
300 less than had been computed
The city officials expected a revenue of S100
000 from the railroad franchises and licensee
Instead of this however the city will get only
FOOOOO The Sheriffs fees which under
the pre ent low making the Sheriffs office
a salaried one so Into the city treasury with
out deduction fall short as might be expected
under the grotesque administration of K J
hi Tnin < n Time revenue from this source Is
15000 below the estimate Time cost of the
Sheriffs ofllce to the people of New York In a
year or nether this year under Tamsen Is
130000 and had the figure of the estimated
revenue been sustained the citys net loss on
this ndmtnltraton of this office would have
boon only S15OOO Actually through the fall
ing ofT nt receipts the loss w ill tx 30000
Kvery year there are carried owe into the
Kitiernl fund of the citys revwiuo the un
expended balances appropriated to the various
departments amounting usually In a year to
about 1101100 Thin year however the gross
amount of such lutlances Is only 222000
Whllo there has been a falling off of city
revenue In the branches of public service
nirneil there has been n gain though a small
one In tome other departments The city re
ceives In a year about 5UOO from the De
partment of Taxes and A sc9snu < nts arising
from the iales of articles belonging to that
deiwirtment and from the work of those pris
oners anti others In public Institutions con
trolled by the city This year the revenue
will be 5000 In excess uf the sum expended
10000 In all The Department of Public
larks too under the administration of
Imldent David II Klnc Jr has done bet
ter than expected nnd Instead of a revenue
from material sold and other ouroes of ito
000 the amount received will bo S43000
The Iublk1 Administrators department too
yields 7500 in fees InMcnd of 3000 as
was expected this sum cmnlng from commis
sions paid on intestate estates and from un
claimed money
It Is generally nsttmed by persons not fa
