It covers ovoryfoot of tho Emplro State, and It calls with equal au thority upon ovory New York voter to de feat tbo Croker oandldato, the dumb Van Wyck, and to oloct Theodobb Roosevelt. Tho Novel Democratlo Experiment. Every citizen of this Stato now under stands thoroughly the Importance and sig nificance of tho oloctlon on Tuesday, and tho registration Indicates tho doop interest In It which pervades tho greatest body of voters ln any Stato of tho Amorlcan Union. It will bo an olootlon which will test tho moral standards and tho Intellectual per ceptions of tho citizens more searehlngly than any other which has occurred ln this State. A wholly novel experiment in Amor icon politics has been mado ln this cam paign by tho Domooratlo party, and Its suo ocsaor folluro will afford a gaugoof tho. oharaotor of tho psoplo which will long bo a gutdo for politicians of both partios ln overy Stato. It Is not moroly that tho Demo cratic party Is used openly and avowedly as a maohlno for tho destruction of tho Inde pendence) of tho Judiciary that Its campaign Is without a precedent ln tho history of Amorlcan polities, but because from begin ning to end and everywhere throughout tho Stato It has been marked by a duplicity without a parallel. Go back to tho record of ovory political canvass conducted slnoo tho foundation of this Government and you will And not ovon a shadow of a parallel to it. Followers Of BnrAN In 1800 who won respect ovon from their enemies by tho courage with which thoy supported a vlolous causo havo gono under tho cover of that dupllolty In order to avoid exposure ln 1808. Gold Democrats who were then bold ln proclaim ing their principles aro now hiding timor ously. Evon Demooratlo candidates for Congress aro humiliating and stultifying thomsolvcs by refusing to oonfess their opinions on tho ono groat question which divides the two parties. On both sides of tho Democracy anxiety lest the secrot of their political sentiment should bo found out Is tho most striking manifestation. Now, what Is Domocraoy 7 Is It a body of posltivo and definite distinctive polit ical principles worthy to bo proclaimed and defended, or is it so shameful an Im putation that tho Democratlo party is forcod by tho instinct of solf-presorvntlon to hide Its truo character from the knowl edge of tho peoplo of tho Stato ? Through out this campaign tho course of tho Demo cratlo party has betrayed Its oonstant terror lest In an unguarded moment some of Its stump orators should let out the secret of Its political belief. This is all the moro astonishing slnoo thero is no possibility of doubt ln the pub lic mjnd as to tbo belief and the purposes of the other party. Theodobb Roosevelt has mado hundreds ot speeches throughout tho State, and his position toward ovary' public question, Stato and national, Is1 known to every citizen. Ho has1 concealed nothing, has nover avoided a question as to tho faith which is in him, but has sought rather to provoke such inquiry. Consequent ly, excopt for tho Republican campaign, wo should have had no Campaign after tho usual American fashion of freo speech. Tmeodobe Roosevelt has gono out to fight, but he bos found no enemy armed with prlnclplo to opposo him, though his chal lengo to the combat has been loud and per sistent. Tho Democrats havo hidden away from tho field of contest lest somobody ln their own party should find out what It was fighting for and hold it responsible for defending a definite position. That is the astonishing experiment tho Democratic party has mado ln this cam paign. It has Introduced into political war faro the wholly novel Strategy of throw ing away its arms of attack and defence. It la an army Which Is ashamed to have its banner seen. Its reliance is on cowardloo and not on courago, and it has undertaken to present a craven retreat from what aro known to bo Its principles as tho latest Im provement ln political campaigning. Is It possible that on experiment in poli tics whioh thus Insults the lnteUlgonoe of all tho peoplo, honest Democratlo partisans in cluded, con ba successful ? Not unless tho people ot Now York havo lost their com mon sense and havo beoomo poltroons and simpletons. Private Property on the Soa. A memorial to President McKetley has boon drawn up by Mr. Ohables H. But LEn and others asking him to invito tho maritime nations to unite ln a oonforenco at Washington, for tho purpose of exempt ing private property on the sea from cap ture during war. This oxomptlon has lorig been approved by our country, but, as tho memorial well says, it could nover bo urged with greater propriety than now. Wo havo rocontiy had tho exporlcnoo of a war In whioh "our cause was so Just and the objocto to be attained woro of suoh paramount impor tance to tlio world at largo that not one of the powors saw fit to interposo or protest against our course." In that war Spain was far from being a terror to our merchant marine, whilo our navy showod its ability both to protect our commoroo and to destroy her llceta. It, therefore, wo now take ground for tho Immunity of noutral jnerohandlse at boo, except when contraband of war or violating a blockade, we shall not bo accused elthor of Inability to protect ourselves or ot noting under the smart of reoont losses. The memorial points out that the doo trlno that "freo ships mako free goods" was incorporated ln our treaty of alliance with France during the War of the Revolution, and that In 1780 wo adhered to it as main tained by OatUebixe of Russia. In 1828 Secretary AdAus Inoffeotually urged It upon England, France and Russia, the two latter countries, hbwevor, expressing a willing ness to Join ln a gonoral agreement to that effect, while declining Individual treaties with us. Later we socured a partial recog nition of the prlnclplo in a treaty with Bo livia and its full recognition in our treaty of 1871 with Italy, Meanwhile had coral, at tho outaot ot thd Crimean war, tho faitous Declaration pi Paris, which, for tho nations aooeptlng it, abolished privateering and held that n nou tral flag exempts from capture an enomy'a goods except contraband of war, whilo an enomy'a flag exempts neutral goods except contraband. England, Franco, Russia, Austria and Sardinia united ln that declara tion, to which other nations afterward gavo in their adhesion. Our country hold back, but tho explanation given by Secretary Minor was very striking. Ho offered to accedo to nil tho rules oxcopt tho ono against privateering, and to accedo to that provided another rulo should bo addod, making all private proporty froe from cap ture oxcopt contraband of war, Prosldont Pcebcb put our position forcibly In his mes sage ot 18G4: "The proposal to surrendlr the right to employ privateers la professedly founded upon the principle that private property of unoffending aon-oombatants, though enemies, ehould be exempt from ravagee of war. Should the leadlnn powers of Europe concur In proposing as a rule of international law to ex empt private property upon the ocean from selsure by public armed cruisers as well as by privateer, the Called States will readily meet them upon that broad ground." Tho prcsont memorial, in short, mnkos out its plea that the main purposo which it seeks accords with tho historic policy of tho United States, and thoro is no doubt that such a movoment, undertaken by us dlroctly upon tho close of a victorious war, would bo Impressive Should tho proposed congress bo hold, It might ylold other praotlcal re sults, slnoo, as tho momorlal suggests, it might also take up the abolition of onorous sound dues, tho opening of somo navigable rlvors now closed and improvements In thd rules of tho road at sea. Africa at tho Century's End. The Independent ot this town has lately printed a series ot articles on tho aatunl oondltion of Africa by writers spoolaily qualified to discuss tho subjects propoBod. Theso articles havo been republished ln book form by Messrs. Dodd, Mead k Co., and wo can heartily oommend them tothoso who deslro to understand tho bearings of tho Fashoda Incident, tho temporarily Bot tled dispute betwoon Fronoo and England touching tho valloy of tho mlddlo Niger, and othor questions that seem likely to excite controversy at no distant date. Ono of tho extraordinary phenomena of tho last half of the nineteenth cen tury is tho suddenness with whioh the long impenetrable secrets of tho Dark Continent havo been disclosed. So far as tho interior Of Africa was concerned, tho maps mado as late as forty years ago told us but very littlo more than did those constructed 850 years' earlier, when tho rounding Of the Capo of Good Hopo by tho Portuguese had been mado known to tho goographors. With tho ex ception of a thin fringe on the Western and Eastern coasts, the wholo body of tho con tinent between the limits of tho Cape Colony and tho countries bordering the Mediterranean was almost entirely un known. All tho immense additions that have been slnco mado to our knowledge of Inner Africa aro mainly duo to tho explora tions which began with LmKOSTOKE's Journey to tho Zambezi ln 18C4-57. By August, 1884, however, tho basins of the Nile, Congo, Nlgor, Zambezi, and Lim popo rivers, together with all tho great lakes, had been fairly woll described, and, slnco then, exploration has beon prosecuted on such a scale that thoro la now but Uttlo left to discover. In tho year lost named, at tho Berlin Confcronco, began tho process of partition, the results of whioh have justlflod the saying that, whereas during the eighteenth contury Europeans were engagod In tak ing Africans from Africa, thoy havo been employed during tho nineteenth ln taking Africa from the Africans. What may bo termed unappropriated Africa has been reduced to very narrow dimensions. It Includes the eastern portion of tho Sa hara south of Fozzan, but this, with tho ex ception of the Tibcstl highlands, is a hopo less desert until, on its southern border, we reach tho seml-clvlllzed Soudanese sulto nate of Wadal, whioh is, at present, inde pendent, but which, ultimately, no doubt, will be claimed, by Franco. As for Darfur, Eordofan, theBahr-el-Ghazal region and, In short, all of the territory which oneo belonged to tho Ehodlvo, this will probably bo recovered by Egypt In tho course of two Or threo years. Thoro Is also a small disputed area in West Africa. It consists of a patch behind tho British Gold Coast colony, Ashontl, and tho Gorman Togoland, consisting mainly of tho king dom of MossL Great Britain claims a part of this patch, and, quite recently, Germany and Franco camo to an agreio mont as to tho limits of Togoland. We should add that Liberia, the negro republic Is etlll, nominally, Independent, though Franco has cut down her territory to 1 4,000 square miles. Through the Jealousy of the powers Inter ested, Morocco remains as yot unannoxed, and tho Turkish Pashollk of Tripoli, which In cludes Barca and tbo oasis ot Fezzan, is, for a llko reason, permitted to remain Turkish territory. In the south of tho continent tho Orange Freo State and tho Transvaal Ropubito are Indisputably autonomous so faros local solf-govornment is concerned. We should further montlon that Abyssinia retains its Independence, although It is now entirely cut off from the Boa. With tho ex ceptions hero noted, tho vast oxpanso of Africa, comprising noariy twelvo million square miles, la distributed among Euro pean powers whioh havo elthor annexed the soil, or established on nvowod or virtual protectorate over it, or elso sot claim to It as falling within their spheres of influence. Lot us soo how tho division has boon mado. For tho present, and until England shall assumo a protectorate over Egypt, Franco has, ostensibly, the larger share. Inoludlng Madagascar, her territory is es timated at 3,300,000 square miles, but almost half ot this is represented by tho French section of tbo Sahara, which Lord BALisnunY euphemistically described as "very light soli," Algeria and Tunis, of courso, are held by right of conquest, and, in West Africa, Franco possessos a long lino of coast, from a little to the north of Capo Blanco round to tbo British Gold Coast colo ny, Interrupted, however, by such patches as British Gambia, Portuguese Guinea, Liberia and Hlorra Loone. The whole of tho Nigor abovo Say la French, and nearly all tho country within tho great bend of tho river Is claimed by her. Franco also claims tho entire region north of a lino drawn from Bay to Lake Tchad, tho eastern shore of which body ot water adjoins French Con go. Tlio eastern boundary of Frenoh Congo is, according to tho English, tho divide between the waters of the Congo and the Nile, but, according to tho Frenoh, should bo pushed eastward so as to include at least a part of the Babr-el-Ghazol coun try. It was in pursuanoo of these preten sions that Major Maecmand advanoed to FUhoda On the) White Nile. The part of French Congo which lo beyond dispute has II IB I mmmmmmmm an area of Borao GOO.000 square milos. Wo should not overlook tho fact that at the mouth of tho Rod Soo, opposite Aden, thoro is a block of territory known as Obok, whioh is estimated to cover 50,000 square miles, and which belongs to Franco, This acquisition has strateglo valuo be cause It commands Abyssinia. Tho total area in Africa clalmod by Great Britain is at prcsont computed at 2,800,000 square miles, but to this 1,200,000 square miles would bo added should n protectorate bo assorted ovor Egypt. Tho British Nlgor territories form tho most densoly peopled part of Africa; thoy aro capable of groat commercial development, and many ot tho peoplo aro far abovo tho rank of savages. Uganda, also, whioh has boon tormod by ex plorers tho pearl of Africa, falls within tho British sphoro of Influonoo. On tho wholo, It may bo said that tho wholo of Africa that la comfortably habltablo by white men Is under tho British flag, or undor British protec tion ; and again, that everything in Africa that pays dividends Ilea within tho sphere claimed by tho British Government. Prac tically, what othor nations havo scrambled for hasboen Joan BdlIi's leavings. Gor many, it is truo. has annexed 020,000 square milos, but moro than a third of this is desort land on tho southwest coast, and tho rest is tropical land on tho east ooast, or tho Gold Coast, whioh contains moro officials than colonists, and requires sub sidies but paya no dividends. Portugal, which onoo possessed a far larger territory, rotntns 750,000 square miles, but much of this consists of malarial marshes. Tho Congo Froe State may, ultimately, provo self-supporting, but, at present, it needs a subsidy of $400,000 a year, and has incurred, besides, a dobt of over $40,000,000. Italy, which, originally, clalmod 420,000 square miles, has boon re stricted on the coast ot tho Red Sea to tho narrow strip known as Eritrea, has been obllgod to ronounoo hor assorted protector ate ovor Abyssinia and will probably havo to sell hor part of Somolllond to Great Britain. In foot, with the slnglo exception of England, the partition of Africa has not, as yet, beon a sourco ot profit to any of the powers concerned. It Is tho English and tho Belgians who, thus far, havo done most to open up com munication with tbo interior of Africa by means of railways. In South At rloa a lino has been carried across fifteen degrees of latitude from Capo Town to Buluwayo;lt is this which Mr. Cecil Rhodes hopes to extend through tho heart of Africa until it reaches Lake Victoria. Tho lino from Mom basa on tho cast coast has already passed the 120th mllo, and Is expeoted, within six yt :'S, to reach its terminus on Lake Victoria, a distanoo of 650 miles from tho Indian Ocean. Tho line from Boira to Salisbury has already crossed the boundary between tho Portuguese territory and Mashonaland. Tho Nilo Valley Railway, although built with a military aim, will now be available for commercial purposes. It is to bo extended at least as far south ns Khartoum, and is to have a branoh to Suaklm. The Belgian Railway, which connects tho estuary of tho Congo with Stanley Pool, is now completed, and has a length of some 250 miles. A considerable trafllo already exists on It, and thero can bo no doubt that with trains reaching tho mlddlo. Congo, with its thousands of miles of navigable waterways, a great Impetus will bo imparted to trade in tho heart ot the Dark Continent. To Men ln State and City Uniforms. Wo advlso members of tho National Guard who prefer Van Wyck to Roose velt as tho Guard's Cbmmandor-in-Chlof to take off their uniforms and retire. Thoro is no room for donate upon the National Guard policies which Roosevblt and Van Wyok represent, whatever the rel ative virtues of their politics in general. As Governor, Roosevelt's policy toward tbo National Guard has been exemplified In his treatment of tho Now York city polico when a commissioner. Men roso and foil on their merits. VanWyok's National Guard polioy would bo, unavoidably for him, the Croker method of handling tho polico, ln which political partisanship kicks offlcors all around tho city as It pleases. MlUtlamon, pollcemon and firemen, with tho Interest of their respective services at heart, ''now that TnEODonn Roosevelt is vastly moro worthy of their support than Richabd Choked or any man whom Cbokeb names tor offloo. A " Tjobster " Campaign. A colloquial expression has como Into use In Now York lntely, moro particularly In districts of the town remote from tho chief arteries of travel. An individual whose use of words or actions havo no senslblo purpose is called a "lobster," In other words, It signifies a man who does not know "where he la at." Where the use of tho term originated Is undiscoverablo, but ' ' lobster " conveys a distinct idoa to a large part of tho town. When, therefore, wo spook of tho Domo oratlo campaign as a "lobster" campaign wo shall be understood locally to a wide extent Tho attempted substitution of "lobster" Issues for tho real and Important Issues of the election is noticeable. A can didate on tlio Van Wyok (Augustus) ttokot has sent out a circular through ono of tho Senatorial districts of this city, which Is fairly bristling with lobsterian issues, and was prepared on tho ovldont assumption that tho appetite for "lobster" Is pecu liarly ravenous thero, Tho first of theso "lobster" issues Is tho issuo of "knock-out drops." The circular is silent on all tho groat public questions, tho credit of tho nation, tho integrity of tbo courts, the onforcoment of the laws and tho upholding of tho Government, but it is outspoken about "knoak-out drops." Attention Is called to the fact that the Republicans in their Sara toga Convention villainously evaded tho "knock-out drops" issue, nor has Tniio doiie Roosevelt spoken about It; yot thero Is many a professional criminal In Now York, many an associate of criminals, who cares far moro about tho phraseology of tho law on " knock-out drops " than ho does for any of tho great issues whioh con corn peoplo who are not criminals. The second of tho "lobster" issues Is the Issuo of names blown on glass bottles. Undor the Bottlers' act, concerning which the Republican State Convention failed to mako a formal dollvoranoe, and of which Theodore Roosevelt has forgotten to spuak, the legal tltlo ln glass bottles can be enforced if tho natno of tlio owner bo blown ln. Somo bottle makors, whilo con forming technically to tho law, havo their homes blown in languages othor than Eng lish. This Is a fruitful causo of contusion and dissatisfaction among barkoepors, and many a barkeeper In town is more excited over the Issue ot compelling bottlers to blow their names In English ln their iettlea than- ovw? tb.ojprototloa at tbo na- -V- )t"'7.' i - ,. ' tlonal OBodlt, or the Independence of tho Judiciary and tho securing of our conquosts from Spain. Tho third ot tho "lobster" issues Is tho Issuo of "sand on tho railroad traoks." It applies only, it la truo, to horso cars, tho numbor ot which la now rapidly diminish ing, but many prcsont and formor car con ductors and drivers and many others along tho fow remaining lines ot homo cars are supposed to be agitated profoundly over tho somewhat lax enforcement ot tho existing law on the subject, and demand Imperatively that tho issuo bo " taken up." Concerning It also tho Republican Stato Convention In Saratoga omitted to spoak, and Roosevelt has not onco montlonod it ln his many campaign addresses. Tho " lobster " oandldato who has sent out the circular is, howovor, only following, at an humhlo distance, tho load of tho Domo oratlo candidate for Govornor, and wo shall not slnglo out for reprobation tho subaltern of a " lobster " obiof. Ho is simply Imbued with the "lobster" ideas on which tho Domooratlo party fights this roar. Millions ln It.

It is immensely to Col.

All that Van Wyok has to base his vory nonjudicial clamor on Is a "report," no canal ofuolol having boon hoard, and the case not yot having been tried. Although Auotjbtus Van Wyok has served on tho bench, his campaigning has mado it plain that Roosevelt would have made a better Judgo. Roosevelt is infinitely better qualified to bo Governor ot New York. Scratch ono of tho moro violent reformers or antl-machino mon, like E. M.

Tonens System of Land Titles. Totbe Editoh or Tub Sun Mr. In reference to tho " Torrons " system of land titles, I stated In my communications of the 25th and 30th of September last that tho Illinois aot passed In 1835. to take effect Jan. 1, 1880, had been do clared unconstitutional by tho Supreme Court, on tho ground that it conferred judicial powors on tho Recorder not contemplated by the Con stitution. Two other objootions to (ha act were raised at the time, viz. : First, that minors' rights weronotsuDioiently protected, and eooond.that tho provisions for making judgments a lien were not constitutional, but the court did not pass upon them. In 1807 a new aot was passed by the Illinois Legislature, in which an attempt was made to remove all the illegal features found or com plained ot in tho prevlons law. the main now feature being that the act lnoludes tho filing of a petition In the Circuit Court which passes on all questions Involving judicial action. To test this new act, quo warranto proceedings were begun against the Recorder of Cook county on an agieed case, rim lower court's decision favored tho Recorder, and now I am pleased to Inform your readers that on appeal the Supreme Court of Illinois, ln a docroo dated Oct. 24, up holds tho judgment of the lower court and sus tains the Torrens Land Title act. Tho llo corder for Cook county, acting as Registrar, Is now taking stops to open the office and transact business under this law. , All persons Interested In real estate In Chi cago aro reported to be much gratified at this Eesult. which Is oxppctea to prove of so much eneflt to real estate holders, dealers, brokers and mortgagees.

I learnod from promi nent Germans ln Buffalo that vory many ot their Democratlo Oorman frlonds are going to vote for Mr. Itoosovolt. Tho Impressions made by Col. Roosevelt ovory whore, among all olassos ot peoplo, aro that ho la a brainy, honest, aggres sive man, well fitted for tho office of Govornor, and who, if elected, will bo Just to all the people, without regard to who or what they aro. In tho cities of Buffalo, Rochester, and Syra cuse tho Democratlo candidate was glad to nil one hall well, whilo tho Republican oandldato filled all the halls In sight, and thousands stood on the streets, unable to get Into any building. I find the Democrats divided on account ot the silver and gold qnestion. Vory many of them object to Mr. Croker's control of the Dem ocratlo side of the campaign. On the other hand, I find tho Republican party distinctly united and well supported by tho inde pendent element, which has always been a prominent factor ln New York State politics. To the vast army of 100,000 commercial trav ellers of New York State I glvo ten reasons why I believe my follow travellers upon the road would do well to vote for Col. Roosovelt: First He Is a Ood-fearlng man; has the right foundation. Beeond Manly man: has oharaotor. Third Is no one man's man ; has Independ ence. Fourth 1 a man for all the peoplo unselfish. Fifth Is a man who hustles a worker. Sixth Is an aggrossl re man a fighter. Seventh Is a tactiul man: consldorato of others. Eighth Is a man you can trust honest.

When mon of high standing. Intellectually and so cially, will denounco and repudiato Croker, tho boss of Tammany. In one breath and In the next breath link hands with him and call on decent citizens to .support tho tickets he has put up, a most remarkable phase of political conduct has been developed. Such men may not Inaptly be called the Dr. Jekylls and Mr. Hydes" of politics. The reasoning by which such citizens as Mr. Homblower can reconcile themselves to the support of Judge Van Wyok for Governor may bo perfectly clear to their subtlo intellects, but to the average every-da citizen It passeth all understanding. Judge Van Wyck Is as much the personal candidate of Croker for Governor asLeventrlttlsthe personal oandldato of Oroker forjudge, and no juggling with words can make Sensible men think otherwise. Has any ono as yet heard ot anything said by Judge Van Wyck In condemnation of Crok er's hlgn-handod conduct with roforenoo to the judicial nominations on the Democratlo ticket ? It was Daniel Webster, I bellove, who said that "justice was the chlefest concern of man on this earth." What has Judge Van Wyck to say about a Croker Judiciary? Is ho for or against it? If there ever was a candidate Who was the popular oholce of his party, that candidate Is Col. Roosevelt, the honest, intelligent;- big hearted, warm-blooded, bravo soldior and patri ots citizen. We know where he stands on all tho great questions of the day. There is noth ing uncortaln, nothing "wabbly," about him. New Yosx. Nov. 5. Jaues B. Lauz. From X,aka Erin to olontauk.
