A difference of opinion )fc between the Senate and the House as to the if amount of money to be expended on the f fora after July 1 can te understood, but this bill provides for the care and handling jf of guns now mounted or to be mounted be- fore tha: time. Mr. Hawjet has pointed j out that, under current contracts, there $ should be moun'ed before July 1 nest f 130 heavy guns and tt Lhterones, with 1232 mortars, making an a-Tesate of 37 pieces. The pending bill, which add l.tilO men and 111 officers to the art.! lery. and, at the President"! discretion, tis more enlisted men at the utmost, or a pos sible aggregate of noc OTer 1.700. is totaie effect immediately, for the very reason that this additional force is rei,nlred. These artillerymen are needed on thou sands of miles cf seaboard, from Portland Hevl to Paget Sound. Most of them, of ;i course, ought to be raised and retained, for is the present, en the Atlantic coast, because I only there would there be any chance of at- ll tack .n case of trouble with Spam. But n It due time every State on the seaboard would I, reap an advantage in ecurity from such an J? addition to the artillery forces, while surely jl the interior la concerned in the safety of - the coasts. ,f Under the circumstances the argument for this bill is so overwhelming tha: oppo- ' S litlon must be classed as unreasonable.

Whether the time is near at hand when. 12 the interest of civilisation, our Govern ment should reccgULie the Independence of Cuba, and should Interpose by force to re store pnace in the island. Is one question. Whether it should forthwith declare war against Spain, provided the Court of In quiry shall ascribe the less of the Maine to I an outside explosive, bus without attempt j ing to Indicate the authors of the catastro- j phe. Is a very different question. The two ' Inquiries should be kept apart and deals with each upon t s m-rtts. If the indmj of the Court of Inquiry should be that the destruction of the Maine was due, not to any internal accident, but to an explosive applied from without by , some person or persons unknown, a certain ' measure of responsibility would undoubt edly attach to the Sp.inish Government. I; was the duty of the Spanish authorities a: Havana to use more than ordinary diligence rn protecring th Mane. both because she was the war ship of a friendly power, en titled to th ame treatment as in ambaj--ailor might claim, and also because -he had "-en ordir-d to anchor ataporticularspoc. Spain can no more repudiate responsi bility or refuse the payment of au indem nity for tne loss of 1 fe and prope-ty under uch conditions than our Federal Govern ment could refusi- an indemnity to Italy Jit the murder of I'alian subjects in a not at Xew Or'eaus. From the moment tha: a Gov-mmsnt fails either to safeguard he abjects or citizens of a friendly State ojoumtn in its territory, or else to pimsh the perpetrators of assaults upon them, a !j:k of dae dtl i-nce is pr-sum'-d and a claim for indemnity attaches. We do not believe that this position wou.d be disputed at Madr.d. provided the Court of Inquiry, while imputing the destruc tion of the Maine to an outside agency, should tind no cause for arraigning the Spanish authorities a: Havana as acces ories before or after the fact. We do not believe that the Span jh Government would refuse to cay a reasonable Indemnity for the loss of life and property, provided It were held, not to a direct and legal, but cniy to an mdirsct and moral responsibility Let us supoote. then for the sake of argument, tha: the Maine will be ad juired to have been blown up by some person or persons unknown. In that event. Spa.n must; be regarded, not certainly as an accomplice, but as chargeable, at worst, I with contributory negligence, .assuredly ' our practice 'n suchi-xses is not to declare I wr forthwith, but to put forward a de mand for an indemnity Such was the course pursued by President Bsyjaitix Hasr.sox, when sailors from an Amer tcaa war ship wer attacked m the streets of Valparaiso. Even where the re sponsibility of a foreign Government for I an act of agression was d.rect and unmis , tak tble. we have refrained from a precipi-ttt-- re-tort to hostilities. In the case -f the Virginia, .t wjj a, Span.sh man-of-war wbieh cap-ured on the h U seas a ve-vl riving the American ttag and tro her nto 'he port of Santiago de Cuba, where a lare number of her crew imi pos- sner-. .ncludimr many American c-tuutu, wer- . immaxilv hot. It was afterward a. Itf-rcu, udeeii -hit the papers of the V.r i.aius were decisions, but, of course, the punish war ship was not justified .a de ciditw: arbitrarily that rhis was the case. The puint to which we would draw atten tion .s teat th.s wu aa eiample, not of contributory negligence and of cuuscrue-tiv- respons.01.it, but of pcs.tive and t!agrant guilt, the Span sh war ship being tne Glacial agent of the Madrid Govern ment. Never-ho.ess, we did not go to war I ahout tde Virgm.u-s but. after nevptia t.ons had een prjlonged about two years, t accepted aa apOiOgy rrata Spaia, toaether I with the retura of the captured vaael and a small rran ary Indemnity. , This was not the oxi.t memorable ia stance, when we have accepted aa tadeav !mty in piace of making war. During the irst decade of this cantury, when the United Statea sad GrtaS Britain were as peace. I . the Captain ot British frigate assisted npon searching the American frigate Chesa. ' pcake on the ground that certain British subjects were among the Iattet's seamen. The demand being repelled, the British frigate Hredon the American, which was en tirely unprepared, and kept on firing until a great lows of life was incurred on the de fenceless vessel, and the Stars and Stripes were palled down. If sver an Immediate outbreak of hostilities were Justlned by public wrong, unquestionably it would have been justified by the treatment of the Chesapeake. Nevertheless, our Govern meat did not resort to war, but bore the outrage with meekness, aa It did many other Injuries and Insults received from England la the years preceding 1S1-. But few Americans will desire their Government to bear again what It bore from England In the case of the Ches apeake, nor are there many, we Imagine, who regard with complacency the outcome of the Virginius affair. We have mea tioned these Incidents, because In them the responsibility of a foreign Government for the wrong experienced was direct, gross. and undeniable. Of a different kind and weight in the ethical scale, and la the forum of International law, is the responsibility imposed by contributory negligence, the only kind ot responsibility which could attach to Spain, should the Court of In quiry fail to connect the destruction of our battleship with the Spanish authori ties at Havana. A Proposition for Municipal States. A plan for creating three " municipal States " Is proposed and defended by Mr. Joseph H. IrwtN tn the CAtcacx) .Vtcs. The increasing tendency of population to concentrate tn cities Is the basis ot hi argument. At the time ot the nrt national tensus in lT'.-O less than 4. per cent, of tro population lived in thecittes. inliSOlthad increased to nearly 30 per cent. . and in 19"J0. Mr. Ibwix estimates, fully one-half will be urban. Already t3" per cent, of the population of New York is la tSti cities and towns of 3,000 inhabitants and aver; 45 per cent, in Pennsylvania is in 67 towns, and 41 per cent, in Illinois Is la 37 towns. Mr. iRtvc estimates that at the next cen sus the-e three States will have Joiatly a ratio of about t)3 per ccat. la cities aad only 35 per cent, la the " rural districts." The three municipal States for whese creation Mr. iRtsrx argues are the three cities of the Caion having over one million inhabitants, or New York, with 3,600,000 in 190O, Chicago, with the somewhat exuberant estimate of 2.100,000, and Phila delphia, with l,400,0i)0. Ee would have each take ia adjoialagcooatiesto "ftiruh sufficient territory to form a State and pro tect its maritime interests." thus increas ing their population tn 1900 to 4.000,0(0. 2.350,000, and 2,130,000 respectively, and thinks that there " should be no difficulty in obtaining the approval of the States con cemeilandtheconsentot Congress." Final ly, he would have the new "municipal States" cutoff in time to participate as such tn the next Presidential election. Mr. Irwtx Is evidently a saagu ne man. Even if there ought to le "no difficulty" about the matter, actually there wuuld be great and probably Insormountable diffi- 1 culty. No State would willingly cut off from Its dominion the centre of its wealth ; and population : nor Ls there any Indica tion that the cities themselves would be prepared to advocate such aa excslon. Here m New York, for instance, querulous objection has been made at times to " hay. seed legislation." but it has not been ac companied by any proof, if, Injeeii, any as sert.on. that purely urban legislation wouid te better. The rharter of New York already 1 gives to this city the fullest measure of " home ruie" ever granted to a muncipal tty, and the -tispiie :ion of the people is to wait to see how it wi-rks before boasting ; of superior itnea for legislation. ' On general principles, Mr. Ib.wt 3 prop osition is unsound and vicious. The sepa ration of States Into municipal States and rural States is m.t desirable. The War of Pronunciations. From Ohio, but noc from Ohio alone, comes the thunder of a nerce war of conso ' nants and vowels and pronunciations. Our I esteemed contemporary, the .Wej .Wif-i, avers that the name of the author ot ' tjuo Vadis" is pronounced Chenkayveect." I with the -eh" as in " child." Our equally esteemed contemporary, the Youngntoim I rtUijTtim, is equally sure that "Chenkay I veect" will never be accepted in Youngs 1 town, howe-er much approved by N.ies. For the Youn.rst lira literati have not time , to learn that Tt of pronunciation. The 1 American version, pronounced Sinky 1 wits," is about all they can accompl.sh. ' It will not be admitted that Youngstowa Is the Ch.ted States. " Smkiewicx" would be the appur it pronunciation in English, giving each lecter its face value aad acceat j ing the antepeaultimate. it being the tec j dency of Enxli-'h to throw back she accent. 1 How is the name of the gr-at ilicsxsrxicz pronounced tn Younjtownl Surely noc I Jlickiewits " but " Mickiewics." I Father B uias3a. a learned Baltimore J Pole, was probably misunderstood by 1 re I porter ot the Siirtntor Sun, who dgurss his prouuncUtion of the Polish novelist s I name as Chen-kay-veetch," with the "ch" as ia child. We are Informed by Prof. Jag tows:rr, a yjung Lithuanian scholar la Co.umbus avenue, that the correct pro nunciation is - Shayn-kay-veetcn," accent on the middle syllable, but you doa : have to put both vour feet ou it: drst syllable I exactly like the surname of a well-known !

Aa Engljh ear would catch only one sound, the ay." We hope that both Youngstowa and Warsaw will ratify this pronunciation, but we have no objections to anybody pro nouncing the ward according to his own sweet wiiL The Til'do Bte sets forth another diffi culty which the remarkable popularity of one of the least important of Mr snit xa.t vtsri h's boots has caused HiT you reail - Xvo Tawa" aak4 bar aaijtanur aa toa frlet ba la in ur at anil ailiaatait ber la tb itar irt bluaaait aa 1 lnol aa IT ana bat cucmuu't a tfrunrf - Ti tell ta tnca, istnTacaa.

Still, it seems a little queer that if the ancient Italians Joyously changed their t's into w's. the modern Italians haven't a native w" sound In their lanruage. Street Names and Number. The proposed " comprehensive rearrange ment ot the street names and street num bers within the enlarged New Yorfc. to do away with the chances of confusion, so far as Is possible. Is said to include the abolition of all names of " places " used as designa tions for numbered streets. Ic was a custom In old New York tor the Inhabitants of a block of houses reserved from the encroachments of tenements, stores, factories, or public buildings, to secure for It the official designation ot " place." as a substitute for street, and thereby establish for tt the distinction ot being what was called a "residential block." Some such " places " are Spencer place, a part of West Fourth street : Clinton place, ot West Eighth street ; Columbia place, of East Eighth street; Mitchell place, of East Forty-ninth street , Nellson place, ot Mercer street; St. Clement's place, in Macdougal street; St. Luke's place. In Leroy street , Vannest place. In Charles street ; Varick place. Ia Sulltvaa street , Rutgers place, Bosljn place, Ludlow place, Liaden place, and o on. " Whea the city was smaller aad the op portunities of confusion were fewer than they are a: present, the objection to such 1 designations of New York streets, some of ) them being duplicated la Brooklyn, was I less serious than It Is now, aad to avoid the confusion ot a duplex set ot numbers it is probable that the " places " will go. The Ellsworth Bill. Happy in his understanding ot the larger public questions, the Hnu. Davtd Be-nmti: Hum. again steps to the front of New York ' politics in denunciation ot the Ellsworth j bill. Yet Mr. Hll.t.4 description of the measure as "unnecessary and 111 advised" j shows that he has not yec sounded the depths of ia abominable character. I !

But its pro 1 rooters must come to understand before long the hollowness ot their plea that It Is intended to deal only wtth yeUow joumal I Ism, anl that other newspapers have no 1 cause for resentment.
