IIM f 39 it ' Slovenly LiCglslntlon. SiEIrr f THiii '" Toward tho close of tho session of the :JJ)i) L i Legislature it was announced from Albany 'SfeS'r i" t5iat an 'mPortant reform bill had been iHH.

The meosuro became chapter !(E!k $ 484 of tho laws of 1807. It proves to be ' Hill i , worthy of some attention. ai' I "instead of being reform legislation, It is tjIJIj a step backward. Instead of putting up the ' Hill 1 bars, it lets them down. It is in the form of 1 (Sii aa amcn(lmcnt to section 00 of the Code of Jjj $ Civil Procedure. That section as it stood at Bill I I ke e8'DnIng of tho present year read thus: Mjllil "SicriotSO. Nojxnon holding the offlce or clerk.

Although tho run ;J' Mm ' nlng title of the section refers to Kings JT Bl I tirfunty as well aa New York, there Is not a Hi " word about Kings county In tho prohibi ts HI ; ,tlsm as it stands to-day. Kings county has sbKI " Practically been stricken out of the section, 1 HI!' 'W)d the Code leaves the courts there at Ilb ? jH 11 ffy to make appointments which the J; , i courts hero are forbidden to make. What rJ' fl justification Is therefor thin distinction?

M. Lockiioy, In fact, has long been tho most conspicuous advocate of building cruisers instead of battleships. Before ho had boon raised to ofllco ho mado a sensation by denouncing sundry mod ern French nrmor-clads. Ills bitter at tack, at that tlmo, took also tho broader ground of urging tho construction of Bwlft cruisers instead of heavy battle ships. It was Boinotlmcs said that ho spoke In tho Interest of a famous Arm ot shipbuilders that mado a specialty of cruisers. Bo that as It may, during his not very long term as Minister ot Marino ho maintained his views, and tho current re port Is a striking enforcement nf them. Whether Franco will consent to lay out no vast a Bum on cruisers remains to bo seen; but if sho docs, wo need not bo sur prised to find an echo of tho result In Eng land's next naval programme. Tho Hawaiian Annexation Treaty. Tho treaty negotiated by President Me Kinixy, whereby tho Hawaiian Islands be como a Territory of tho United States, Is In Bomo particulars an Improvement upon that submitted byJPresIdent IlAnmsoN to tho Senate. Tho Chief Magistrate deserves tho more credit for tho skill and caution with which this document is drawn for the reason that ho Is understood to havo received no assistance, but rather obstruc tion, from tho nominal Secretary ot State. Secretary Sherman's views of foreign pol icy seem to vary from day to day, and tho latest utterance regarding Hawaii imputed to him agrees with his acknowledged dec laration concerning Cuba, " that ho would not take it for a gift." It was high time, In view of a Japancso warship In Hawaiian waters, and of a some what peremptory demand mado by Japan upon tho feeble Honolulu Government, that tho status of Japancso laborers In Hawaii and the conditions on which they shall hereafter havo access to tho islands should bo definitely fixed by treaty. In 1884 thcro were just 110 Japancso in Hawaii; six years later thcro were 12,300. They havo since gono on increasing at a rata which has threatened toon to mako them tho dominant clement in the population. During tho last four years, In which, owing to Mr. Cleveland's unwiso and lll-tompcred withdrawal of tho Harrison annexation treaty, wo have been obliged to leave tbo Hawaltans to their fate, a process of absorption by immigra tion has been quietly promoted by tho Mikado's empire. That Is a scheme which might work well enough in tho Philippines, but which was certain to miscarry in an In sular group mainly indebted to our missionary efforts for Its civilization, and closely bound to us by commercial and industrial interests, and over which for some sixty years we havo asserted a moral suzerainty. By tho third article of tho treaty, signed on Juno 10, due notice is served upon Japan that the existing treaties of the Hawaiian Islands with foreign nations will forthwith cease and deter mine, being replaced by such treaties as may exist or may be hereafter concluded between tho United States and such foreign nations. It follows from this notice that the municipal legislation of the Hawaiian Islands, enacted merely for the fulfilment of their emigration treaty with Japan, will also be extinguished by the fact of annexa tion. The legal rights of Japanese laborers In tho new Territory of Hawaii can bo set tled at some future date by tho Govern ments of Washington and Toklo. What Is true of tho Japanese in true also of the Portuguese. One effect of the reci procity treaty concluded between tho United States and Hawaii in 1875 was to create a pressing demand for labor to carry out the many new agricultural and indus trial enterprises projected. Through tho agency of Br. Hillebrand, who was re siding In the Island of Madeira In 1877, arrangements were mado for the emigra tion of Portuguese from the Azores and Madeira. A pioneer company of 180 Portu guese arrived In September, 1878, from Funchal, and since then over 10,000 more have been added to the population of the island. Their status, also, in the new Ter ritory will bo regulated by treaty between the United States and Portugal. With re gard to the Chinese, of whom in 1800 there wero 15,301 in Hawaii, Articlo V. of the treaty very properly provides that there shall bo no further Immigration of Chtncso In to the Islands except upon such conditions as ore now, or may hereafter be, allowed by tho laws of tho United States. Moreover, and this is a precaution of great Impor tance In tho eyes of our citizens on the Pa cific slope, " no Chinese by reason of any thing herein contained shall be allowed to enter the United States from the Hawaiian Islands." So much for the satisfactory purport of tho treaty itself. Now for Its International aspects. Wo may say at onco that the notion that any European or Asiatic power will protest against our annexation of the islands may be dismissed as preposterous. It is true that the London Globe, a news paper which distinguished Itself by de scribing the SchomburgU lino as the sacro sanct boundary of British Guiana on tho west, asserts that tho United States havo no right to conclude an annexation treaty without obtaining tho assent of England and France. Tbo editor should try to re plenish his knowledge with tbo aid of a minor clerk in tho Foreign Ofilce. We will, however, save him the trouble. In 1843 tho two Governments, Franco aud England, united In a joint declara tion to the effect that " her Majesty, tho Queen ot tho United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and his Majesty, tho King of tho French, taking Into considera tion tho existence In tho Sandwich Islands of a Government capablo of providing for tho regularity of Its relations with foreign nations, havo thought It right to engage reciprocally to consider the Sandwich Isl ands us an Independent State, and never to take possebslon, cither directly or under tho tltlu of a protectorate or uudcr any other form, of any part of the territory ot which they are compoHcd." There is no doubt that by this engagement both France and Great Britain wero precluded from acquiring Hawaii either by annexa tion or under tho guise of a protectorate. Tho United States, however, are bound by no such engagement. Urged at the t line to concur la tho declaration made by England nnd Franco, John C. Cai.uoun, then Secretary of State, ro piled on July 0, 1S14, that tho President regarded tho statement made by Daniel Weu kteii on Dec. 10, 181'J, us a sufllclent announcement of tho attitude ot the Wash ington Government and as a full recogni tion on tho part of the United States of tho ludcpcndenca of Hawaii. Tho statement referred to occurs In an official letter ad dressed by Daniel Websteh, then Secre- f i, "i-i- --.' -- ...' t- --...-.- - . ,ll.'.'il3J.i!?J ', ' '.1..-'"- 'L"-L-LJ.1JL '.:?', tnry of State, to tho Hawaiian Commission ers, Messrs, BiciiAitDS and Hualil'io. It will bo observed that, whllo repudiating tho idea ot conquest or of absorption through colonization, ho says not a word about rejecting a voluntary request of tho Islanders for annoxatlon. Tho letter In ques tion, after recognizing tho Independence of tho Hawaiian kingdom, declares "as tho senso of tho Government of tho Unttcd States, that tho Government of tho Sand wich Islands ought to bo respected ; that no power ought to tako possession of tho Islands either as a conquest or for tho pur poso of colonization ; and that no power ought to seek for any undue control over tho existing Government or any cxcluslvo privileges or preferences in matters of commerce." To much tho samo effect spoko President Tyler a few days later in his message, to Congress, dated Dec. HO, 184S. Whllo declaring that for the tlmo being tho Government of tho United States soucht no exclusive control over Hawaii, ho averred that Its relatively " near approach to this continent and tho Intercourse which American vessels havo with It, such vessels constituting five sixths ot all that annually visit It, could not but create, dissatisfaction on tho part of tho United States at any attempt by another power, should such attempt bo threatened or feared, to tako possession ot tho Islands, colonize, them, and subvert tho native Government." Tho Globe's additional assertion that " the American navy Is absolutely unfit to pro tct tho Islands from Spanish warships" will bo received with n guffaw. As to Japan's sea power, it is truo that thls'ls for tho moment superior to that of the United States In tho Pacific, but ours could bo rapidly and Immeasurably Increased it wo had any reason to apprehend a quarrel with tho Mikado's empire. Of such a quarrel, however, thcro Is scarcely a possibility. Its Real Purpose. It becomes moro and more evident every day that tbo real purposo of tho Citizens' Union Intriguing Is not tho defeat of Tam many Hall, but to beat and destroy tho Re publican party as organized In New York. That self-appointed committee Is ani mated by tho bitterest malignity toward tho Republican organization, whoso over throw is Its first and most determined aim. Tho movement is not primarily to elect Mr. Low, but to subjugato that organization, even If tho surrender of New York to Bry anlsm Is tho consequence. Hence this so-called Citizens' Union Is opposed to all tho conscrvatlvo interests ot New York, nnd if Mr. Low consents to bo the agent through whom It vents Its malig nity, every citizen who wants to keep Now York from tho domination of tho Bryan Ized Tammany Hall must refuse to tol erate his candidacy. As it Is now, the Republican party Is the only political party standing between American society and the enemies of civili zation, and its organization must bo pre served in the interests of gcnulno Demo crats no less than those of Republicans themselves. A Useless Bargain. It will make no difference with tho course and character of tho municipal campaign in New York, whatever may have been the bargain made by Tammany Hall with Mr. Bryan; but It will make very much dif ference with the opinion of Mr. Bryan's character which has been held by his sup porters In all parts of tho Union if ho has allowed himself to bo used by Tammany in a game to play fast ond loose with the cause for which he stands. If Its leaders had notified Mr. Bryan during his brief visit to New York that their purpose was to disclaim the revolu tionary doctrines proclaimed nt Chicago and to appeal for justification to tho old time and honest Democracy of New York which spurned them lost year, the political situation here would havo been simplified and the restoration of Tammany Hall to Democratic confidence would havo been assured. But nothing Of the sort was sug gested or intended. The assurances of Tam many Hall to Mr. Bryan wero that It would continue to stand by tho Chicago platform nnd by him, but it risked that ho should assist it in an effort to pull tho wool over tho eyes of tho people by pre tending to put aside that body of revolution ary doctrine, with a view to getting votes on "local Issues," fabricated as a means of deceiving gold Democrats into helping to strengthen tho Bryan machine In New York for the campaigns of 1808 and 1000. So far as Mr. Bryan yielded to such solicitations, he has injured himself In tho cstlmotlon of his followers here and every where else in theUnion. Tho supporters of tho Chicago platform last year aro now de manding and securing the unreserved re affirmation of Its doctrines by all Demo cratic State Conventions. They aro refus ing to mako any concessions or com promises, on tho ground that any yielding whatever would bring ruin and downfall for them as party leaders. Without tbo Issuo of Bryanlsm, straight-out and clean cut, their power and lnflucnco In tho party Is gone Irreparably. How, then, can they make In New York an exception to their uniform policy olse whore? It would bo tho beginning of tho end of their desperate movement. Mr. Bryan would fall Into contempt as hav ing himself made tho ruinous bargain with Tammany, and Tammany would go down wlthhlm. Tho vast body of Its followers who voted squarely for him lost year. In tho face of tho opposition of every conservative and civilized influence In New York, would be Indignant, and would pass beyond Its con trol Irrevocably. Thoy would regard them selves as sold out by tho treacherous Tarn many, nnd ull of them who aro really sin cere would refuso to glvo their support to a ticket nominated In pursuance of the mis erable bargain. On tho other hand, no opponent of tho Chicago platform would trust an organization which undertook thus to hide Its ultimata purpose of assist ing the Chicago revolution. Tammany would bo obliged to conduct a defensive campaign, when Its chances of success depend solely on its assuming tho aggresslvo with great fire and vigor. It would havo to expend Its efforts rather In concealing Its duplicity than In pushing tho "locnl issues," on which it pretended to be making the contest; for, In truth, there are no distinctively local Issues which can be mado by Tammany Hall. It expects to get much political capital out of opposi tion to the Raines law, but that Is a State issue and not a local Issue; and In uny event, this votes It could attract thereby would bo chiefly thoso which Tammany got last year, aud would got again next Novem ber on tho Issue of Bryanlsm, and which would be lost to It In great part If It under took to drop Bryanlsm. Tho llquorqucstlon is swallowed up In the question of the Chi cogo platform; all other questions are swal lowed up In that. As to the " local Issues" .y '.." '' ''" ""'"" '" ''", " specifically which Tammany will make, they will not really bo issues at all, for thoy will not In themselves bo contested poli cies. Tbo Citizens' Union socms already to havo preempted them as Its own. Hcnco Tammany Hall's bargaining with Mr. Bryan to get his assistance in hum bugging tho people in tho municipal cam paign, will como to naught. But his connivance nt It will damage his reputation and may defeat tho plan ho Is so Industri ously working at In his present political journey through tho Union : tho plan of making himself tho logical candidate of tho Chicago Democracy In 1000. That Is not a result to bo lamonted. It would oven bo altogether dcslrablo, if it involved nlso tho defeat ot tho revolution ary prograramo represented by him last year; but Bryanlsm will continue oven it Bryan himself Is kicked out as Its repre sentative ; and apparently thcro is no chance of beating It aud driving it out of tho Democratic party, except by voting it down from now on to tho election of 1000. It is encouraging to honest Democrats, how ever, to discover from his bargain with Tam many Hall of what poor and weak timber Bryan Is as a leader. Whoever else, Bryan, Tammany Hall, or Mugwumps, may try to keep tho Chi cago platform out of tho municipal cam paign, all stalwart and sincere opponents of repudiation and tho Chicago deviltry will hold tholr eyes open to tho fact that It Is thcro beyond removal short ot square repudiation. In Now Jorsoy. Tho Democratic State Committee ot Now Jersey has mado a whimsical exhibition of itself In Its endeavor to cover up tho Chi cago platform and display nothing but local issues. It is afraid to offer that plat form to tho voters of New Jersey again at present, and proposes that tho canvass In that State next fall shall bo conducted on State Issues only. Tho commltteo which thus seeks to keep national issues out ot the campaign seeks at tho samo tlmo to mako tho right of taking part in tho Democratic primaries this year depend upon loyalty to tho Chi cago platform last year. It recommends that only thoso persons who voted for Bryan shall be admitted to tho primaries. Fortho purposo of nominating candidates, only national Issues aro to bo regarded. For tho purposo of electing candidates, only local Issues are to bo regarded. Such Is the absurdity Into which the Now Jersey State Commltteo has fallen in its attempt to fool tho voter without losing its hold upon tho machine. Thoso Popocratic leaders in tho East who aro trying to skulk out of their party's na t ional issues unrcpud latcd and to bamboozlo tho peoplo Into strengthening the local Pop ocratic machines for national effect in 1808 and 1000, must bo as remarkable a lot of joltheads as they suppose tho people to be. Successors to tho American Rail way Union. Tho American Railway Union, that labor trust which, under the statesmanlike direc tion of Mr. Eugene V. Der-s, constituted It self tho de facto government over consider able stretches of territory In 1804, and pro duced a very acute state of war which hed to be ended by tho United States Government, Is about to bo reorganized and greatly en larged. Of whatfurthcrrcorgantzation and enlargement is It capable? In 1800 the so styled Democratic National Convention adopted as Its own the main principles of the American Railway Union's freedom of riot and government by mobs. The neces sity for the separate existence of the Ameri can Railway Union ceased then. It should havo been absorbed Into tho larger body. Tho principles Illustrated at Chicago In 1804 ond enunciated at Chicago In 1800 still control tho so-called Democratic party. Whoever supports a Bryanlte ticket any where, supports, willy nllly, tho principles of tho American Railway Union and tho Debs rebellion of 1804. Tho rioters of 1894 and tholr apologists and advocates in 1800 havo left too strong an impression of disgust upon tho minds of law-abiding and thrifty men for tho latter to forget them, or to fall to recognize them In any guise. A New Measure of McKlnley. When the McKlnley Cabinet was mads up the member most dlfllcult of explana tion was tho Hon. John Sherman. Mr. SliKiutAN was an Ohio man, It Is true, distinguished, experienced, and successful as a Cabinet officer In a preceding Admin istration; but upon the great question of the territorial future of the United States, certain to bo extraordinarily prominent during tho four years to follow, Siikhman was nt odds with tho national traditions, with which McKinley was supposed to bo fully and ardently in hurmony. " If my life is prolonged," tho Secretary of State had written In his "Recollec tions," "I will do all I can to add to tho strength and prosperity of the United States, but nothing to extend Its limits or add now dangers by tho acquisition of foreign territory." Tho statesman who thought this when the Sherman volumo was published would havo thought the samo when Jefferson bought Louisiana. Tho United States havo not culminated In 1807 any more than they had In 1803. However, notwithstanding tho leading place In tho Cabinet was be stowed upon a public man of this way of feeling, tho President has shown, through the Hawaiian treaty, that tho dominating spirit, in tho Administration Is that of tho William McKinley whom tho peoplo knew as nn American Inspired with tho sentiments and purposes expressed by tho leading American statesmen from JcrFEit son to Blaine. Tho President sees moro than tho petty flaws picked in Hawaii by tho old defenders of tho policy of Infamy, and recognizes tho Irresistible arguments for that Island's annexation. Tho American public like John Sherman well, and praise hlra for excepting tho Sandwich Islands from the rule laid down In his "Recollections"; but to-day they have cause, for profound satisfaction that McKinley Is President. It wo snnox Hawaii wo will be compelled to maintain a Hetit In tueFaclilc Atlanta Journal, antt anntxattontit. Thought like a statesman. We must maintain a 1'aclllo licet of course; but with Hawaii ours It "111 not have to be so big as it would bo otherwise. Tho Hon. Geokhe Graham Vest, pour Inn lila tears Into the tldcr muc ond iicrorntlui; sweetly over "tho liquor of our bojhood, the bocniL'ohlcli cheers, but not Inebriates; which sparkles In every Now Kngland festival nnd In tho West nnd tho riouth, wherever the apple Is raised and used," was truly affoctlng, although In tho fury ot bis speech he forgot to say anything about dried apples, whhh aro liUu wlso known wherever tho npplo is raised, nnd constitute not tho loast romarkablo of fruits.

Whon In the bourse of this same elder speech In tho Horiato'he said that "free salt, fren lumber, freo wool, and tho Income tax wero tho fenturwwhlch reconciled him to tho Wilson 1 bill," ho showed thst ho was moro than a poet; that ho was an economist of tho truo tariff -for-anything- but- rovonue- and- sock -It-to-tho-rlch school. Ills attachment to freo salt seems en tirely natural. Onco more tho Hon. Richaud Fjianklin P'kttiorkw, Senator In Conprcsj from South Dakota, Hops upon tho ptnnaclo of tho Capitol and crows. Ho announces that ho Is ready to stand by Senator White of California and stay In Washington all summer. If necessary, to pro vent tho ratification ot tho Hawaiian treaty. Washington would bo fortunnto if It could do pond upon having n mind like Mr, Pkttioukw's in tho vicinity nil suimnor. hut Washington will not bo fortunnto. South Dakota will not con sent to oxist all summer without tho cheering prosenco of tho unlquo statesman who wants to add forty members to tho Cabinet nnd to cct up tho Government in tho land mortgnuo . and agricultural pawnbroklng business.

Many powerful amendments havo been cast at tho octopuses by divers Senators, among whom tho Hon. Horace Cuilton of Toxas do eerres honorablo mention.

So, If Mr. CniLTON had his way he might bo Imprisoned for threo years for sending a plug of tobacco to tho Hon. JonN C. SnEErtAN", or a lump of sugar to the Reform Club. Ills anti-trust admirers hero could not send him a leatbor medal without making them selves liable to a dungeon coll. Othor anti-trust amendments are not less wise than his Is. Apparently tbo Citizens' Unionists are trying to mako of Mr. Beth Low a second Grover Cleveland. They want some ono to love.

TUB liAIIt OP TUB CEXTUltT. Baa-lana's Deafens on the Uoer Itepnbllo, and tbo Reasons for It. From the Shan Van I'ooAf. Steadily the evidence accumulates of foe determi nation of the English Government to sual! the repub lican freedom of the Transvaal as soon after the royal jubilee ecstasies as the state of European politics will Iermll. Nothing but tbe possible Intervention of some combination of Continental powers will save tbs brave boutb African republlo from a filibustering raid, conducted by the avowod direction of the Drltlsb authorities this time, and numbering over sixty thou sand men, English and Colonial, together with a for midable train of artillery. England Is preparing moro extensively than at the time of the Crimean war for theconnlet which she Is resolved to pro oka with the sturdy cltliens whom President KrOger has so long led with statesmanship and courage, but who i must soon put their trust In their own stout hearts and unerring rifles against the most shameless ag gression of the closing century. There aro two reasons for hurrying on tbe piratical attack. In tbo first place, England fears that the steady Incrvaso or the non-English population ot South Africa and tho growing Interest of Franca and Ger many la the development of the South African Freo States may shortly produce a situation too strong for English rapacity to overthrow. In tbe second place, Ibore Is a stock-Jobbing Interest of the most pressing urgency which Is driving no the ring of dukes, earls, and company promoters, who stand to win or lose scores of millions over their desperate gambling In bouth African securities and Inseourltlrs. Every kind of South African stock has been " Wared " for tbo past eighteen months, and the aristocratic speculators who havo followed tbe lead of royal personsges In putting their Investments iuto Johannesburg and Rhodesia are face to fsce with a colossal catas trophe If somo means 11 not found of booming their depreciated stock Into popularity and value. If the English Government seizes the Transvaal, It Is calcu lated that this step will nil the credulous puhllo In England with such confidence In the undertakings which will thus come under theortlrlal protection nf England that an Imraenso rise. In sll torts of South African stocks aud shsres will be the temporary result. Thin will lie the tlmswhrn the royal aud noble stock jobbers will bait en tu "unloid-'tlielrlotigdepreclated shares on a rising market, The Chartered Company rings which maud behind the Colonial Ofilce will uet i scores of millions, and what care thi-y fur the future when once they havo realised at a colossal profit ?

At tho Republican County Commltteo meeting last night Mr. Bid well, ono of tho Ropnbllcnii organi zation leadors in town, offered a resolution which was unanimously adopted, and which contained among othor things this expression: "Nor can any candidacy provo a unify ing force among tho frlonds of good government In this city which Is formally presented prior to tho mooting ot tho Republican City Convention, and without its notion." The expression "n unifying force" was borrowed from Mr. Both Low's letter to the Citizens' Union commltteo regarding Ids candi dacy, and, as il is a phrnso likely to be heard many times during tho present canvass, It socms to mo profltoblo to contrast tho conditions which mado "a unifying force" absolutely Indls ponsablo to success ngnlnst Tammany in tho municipal canvass of 1894 with tho conditions as thoy exist now. In 1801 thoro wero seven or eight political organizations differing from each othor nn many, if not most, points antagonistic to tho alms ot each other, and agreed only In common opposition to Tammany Kail, then In political power In Kew York, and then actually, but now only nominally, a Democratic organization. Thcso numerous hostllo organizations wero Isolated political particles, and they could only bo brought into fusion by tho unifying forco of a candidato who would secure tho support of all thooloments opposod to Tammany IlalL Up to that tlmo, tho Republican party had never carriod tho city ot Xow York in a State or na tional election. Democrotlo candidates had been uniformly successful, and the Democracy, comentod by many years ot hard and successful fighting and not weakened by excursions into tho realm of Populism, was tho dominant party hero. Tho battlo against Tammany Hall was further complicated by the fact that thoro was a Governor of Now York to bo voted for on tho samo day that ths Mayor was chosen. Moreover, tho representatives of Tammany Hall wero then lntroncliod In power and wore deemed by many persons to bo Invin cible Tho error of that opinion was afterward shown; tho necessity ot any "broad gaugo union " did net appear so plainly when the votos had been counted and the result of tho ballot ing mas declared. The union of tho heterogene ous elements hostllo to Tammany was brought about by tho Commltteo of Seventy, which was established primarily to perform that function. This year theso conditions aro entirely changed. Tho election to bo hold Is municipal exclusively. The proportionate number of Re publican voters In the enlarged Now York is materially greater than it was in the city ot Now York alono In tho municipal election ot 1801. Jast year, after a contest of great rigor and intensity, tho Republicans, for the first time In tbo history ot the party here abotits, hod a majority not only for electors on tho Presidential ticket, but also for Governor and for tholr county nominee. Thp Popullzcd. Bryanlzod Tammany Hall lost its lltlo lo bo tho leader of tho Democratic masses. Consequently, in tho territory which la 'tovoto for Mayor of Now York this year thero was rolled up a majority of moro than 50,000 against Bryanlsm and everything in politics representative of it. To bo exact, the McKlnley majority in tho cnlargod Now York territory was 56.000, and Gov. Black, tho Republican candidato, carried the territory by 32,000. Tho " unifying forco" necessary In last year's elec tion was supplied in the determination of all voters, Dcmocratlo and Republican, conserva tive, law-abiding, nnd repudiation-forswearing citizens to oppose defeat, and stamp out Bryan lsm. May not that samo "unifying- forco" bs equally strong this year f That was necessary then; It is necessary now, and tho RcDubllcan party, whiih camo out of last year's successful light with that decisive majority, must bo and will bo, nec essarily and properly, tho leader of tbo column In a battlo to bo waged under tbe samo banner and In support of the same prlnclplis. Tho " outside " organizations range themselves upon ono sldo or tho other of tho groat issue. It is essential, therefore, that ths candi date nominated against Bryanlsm should have a clear record in tho battlo of last year, and that he should be put in nomination by the estab lished organization which last year won tho fight for honesty and the preservation ot civili zation, j Democrat.

Waring yon printed on the 1 1th Ins u. as to the relative expenditure ot the Department of Street Cleaning In 1604 and 1890, 1 said that the figures he gave were not In accordance with those given In the reports for those years published by him In the Citu Jlteord. I have received a letter from CoL Waring In which he says: "You have evidently overlooked the fact that aside from the amount of money spent from the appropria tion, which you take from my report of the accounts of your year, there was also $140,000 paid from ths judgmrnt fund' for the Increased wages of your men under an amendment to the law." He also cites the sum of lo,830 for a duinf ectlag plant at RIker'a Island, paid for with tho proceeds of bonds Issued for that purpose. Thoso amounts are not Included in tbe report of the department for 18U, as published, from which. the figures given by me were taken. In Col. Waring 'a re port fo ISOd the amounts paid out of the proceeds of bonds are Included In the total expenditure as given, and for purposes of comps.-Uea suoh amounts should, therefore, be added to the total for 1894. They were so aaded by Col. Waring, together with t00, a balauoe subsequently paid on account of rent of a stable, to which he refers aa not Included In the report of 184. The addition or these sums brings the total for 1804 up to tbe amount stated by htm.
