Look fairly, Democrats, nt tho crudo ' elements of corruption lying bans in tho s Democratic campaign, and say whether you will support Van "Wyck. Tho first is commonly known as nepo- tlsm, or tho consolidation of tho enormous , political power of tho governments of New York city nnd Now York Stato In tho hands of ono family, tho Democratic candidate ; for Governor, Augustus Van Wyck, being tho brother of tho Now York Mayor, Itou- fr' ert A. Van AVrcK. Publio opinion would ' revolt nt tho idea of a citizen being com- ' pelied to enter n court whero tho Judge 'was tho brother of his opponent. Yet that h Is what Mr. Croker would compel tho cltl- ' eons of Now York to do in their relation to tho Mayor, slnco tho Governor nt Albany r has tho functions of a Judge over the Mayor of Now York city. ', What govornmont by tho Van Wyck i brothers would bo in praotlco can bo seen In ? their mnster's troatmont of tho Hon. Joscni S i Daly, an honorod momber of tho Stato Bupremo Court. In tho person of Judgo Daly tho bench, which, if it Is to bo pure i and Just, must be Independent of political i S dictation, was n6saultcd by Mr. Choker, M if " tavagely bent upon its coatclon. Slnco tho J !j ' Tammany leader had reached a stato of I I mind to inbist upon Iho subserviency of a 3! j Judge, would ho hno darned a cnnditlato j , j for Governor of whoso submission to his i S own rule howasnotab&olutely satisfied ?

The Spanish Pcnco Commissioners at f Paris, according to French advices, are dc- ,V laying tho negotiations bynfutilo reslst- unco to our rightful claims as victors in tho I war, in tho hopo that tho rosult of tho I elections to-morrow will bo favorable to 8pnln ami u "rebuke lo tho Administration . j of Mr. MrKl.NtiiV. They want to obtain ? rovongo for their defeat In war through tho j' defeat at a general election In this, tho vie- i torlcus country, of tho party under which f the war was pi osecutod. I It Is true tlinttlit'io Is a malevolent spirit her, which Is seeking to witp the ends of 1 Spain out of puro animosity to this country, r but it affects only fow treacherous minds. Its special organ Is tho Ertnlng rost of i tblBelty. Thedpf-lrotobringustofthumil- f. latlng peaco Is oxprossed in iliat paper with I, absolute frankness. GonKrN reiterates f dally that this country Is too vile, too cor- rupt, too despicable In nil ways, social and J political, to make possible any extension of its power and Influnnco without tho degradation of civilization. Spain nnd I- America, ho says flatly, am tho two rotten & BOolotles and political systems of tho civil- ized world, and to exchango tho authority fcTI of tho ono for tho othor in any quarter of k? tho globo would bo only to continue in- i ! , . tolerable vllcness, If not to Intensify It. ij! Exactly what tho man Is after It Is not .,jj, easy to divine. It ho has nny defined pur- i; , poso except to gratify his Innate pnrvorslty jj.- f It seems to be n crazy notion that he may be I , . 1 able to wreck our system of government, j i his contempt for which ho Is oeasoloss in k ft expressing. His course hitherto points that I I A wa'' When England and America hnvo nh M been at cross purpows, as, for Instance, in 1 tho Bohring Sea matter and the Venezuela y I K matter, Godkin nrgncd tho Drltieh side, no iij I far ns he is cnpublo of arguing nt all, and L 00 bitterly that suspicions ntoso that ho J ( j had actually obtained a brief from Downing f street. Correspondents of Tun Sun nt ' jt tho tlmo oven went so fur as lo ( ; , BUggest that ho was tho recipient of u 4 J I British subsidy; but it was all only an un ' coutrollabla manifestation of spite against jj,jfe tills country. Accordingly, now that ; ! !j J friendl relations and a cordial spirit hnvo r! resulted from England's conduct toward us j J 1 1 In our war with Spain, ho turns about aid I jj 'j I sneers and Jeers at England for cultivating f M, friendship with America and treating us ' Js ntherwise than with contempt. The demon m ilfi strated desire of England to win tho good will of this country upsoU hla wholo game. As n halor of Amcrlcn lio was England's admiring friend, but now that John Bull shows himself oiir friend ho becomes his disdainful enemy. When our war with Spain was impending ho filled ills pnpor with laudations of tho superior elvllhrMlon of Spain and talked about tho Impudenoa of so vile n country M this In expecting to dercnt such a nation without a terrlblo lesson of damage along our (Jeacoost. Our Ignorant and besotted pnbllc, ho said, know nothing of tho dignity of tho Spanish civilization and was lncapablo of appreciating It, so vast wiw Its supo.'lorlt to our own. Tho war having dlwonifllci him, hois now Baying thnt wo aro too base and corrupt to bo admitted to tho society of civilized nations with outlying dominions, and that tho very suggvstlon that our I'eaco Commissioners nt Paris should securo our conquests Is simply another proof of our low greed. His trouble Is that ho is conscious that by cxtondlng thus our dominion wo shall only demoiwtrato tho moro conspicuously tho strength of our institutions and tho masterful American genius for government. The Campaign That Knd To-Dny. It has been a campaign full of vigor nnd enthusiasm on the part of tho Eopubllcnns; on tho part of tho Democrats It has been full of blunders from beginning to end. Tho Republicans hnvo been fortunato in having n cnmlldato whoso courage, force of ohar actor and tingling earnestness havo de lighted and Impressed tho people. His canvass hns been a genuine personal tri umph. Wherever ho has gone ho hns mado friends. Tho curiosity excited by his rep utation has given way, wherover ho hus appeared, to n feeling of rospect nnd ad miration; and It is far within tho bounds of modcrato statement to say that Theo dore HoosnvcLT Is tho most popular citizen of Now York, and that his personal qual ities havo brought to him a multitudo of men who under ordinary circumstances voto tho Democratic ticket. Of tho Democratic candidate for Governor it is only necessary to say that ho has shown himself n fow times, read a dull pieco and disappeared. Ho has oxcitcd no popu lar intorest. Ho is known only as tho brothor of his brother and tho ward of Richard Crokeh. The Republicans hnvo had tho great ad vantage of representing national as well as Stato issues. Tho Democrats began wrong and havo kept It up. It was a confession of weakness to avoid all mention of tho Chi cago platform and to rofuso to dlscuHS na tional issues. A party that does not daro to faco its own record nnd admit its own principles disgusts tho voters by its lack of courage und candor. Nobody but a very small body of so-called Independents renlly believes in tho possibility of separating na tional nnd Stnto issues. Thq Democrats won in this town in 1807 by tho division of their opponents. Mr. Crokeu seems to havo got it into his head that they won by dodging tho Chicago platform. But that Is only tho smallest blunder of Mr. Crokeb's for tho Republican benefit. In Becking to escnpo national Issues ho insured a lifeless cnnvns3 for his party. When lie attacked tho freedom of tho courts ho drovo away from tho Democratic ticket thousands and thousands of Democratic, otere nnd created a Stato lssuo transcend ing infinitely tho Stnto issues upon which ho had been depending. Moreover, his daily proclamations and his continual dibchargo of nbubo against tho men who hao dared to oppose his platvto mako " proper consid eration for Tammany" tho standard of judicial Illness, havo greatly helped Repub licans and nugeicd decent Democrats If over a man acted us though ho wero "fey" politically, Mr. Crokeu Is that man. Finally, tho talk ngalnst tho Ealucs law has fallen flat, and tho nppearanco of tho browers in theuct of supplieatingfor a Dem ocratic Legislature to remove tho Raines law and u Democratic CongrebS to relievo them of tho beer tax has not moved any body, except to bard-hearted laughter. Standing fair and square on Stato Issues and on national issues, helped by his own gallant and attractive character, helped by tho blunders of tho Democrats and tho madness of Richard Croker, Theodore Roosevelt lias made a campaign that lias waked the snakes. The Crisis In the Fur East. Tho leading articlo In tho November num ber of tho North American Review is con tributed by Mr. Archibald R. Colquhou.v, lately tho correspondent of tho London Tinif a nt Shanghai and well known as tho author of "China In Transformation." It is a clear and conclso account, by perhaps tho highest llviug authority upon tho sub ject, of tho uctual stnto of tilings In tho Middle Kingdom and of its bearing on tho present and prospective interests of tho United States and Orcat Britain. After pointing out thnt tho mutilation of China which has thus far taken plnco lias been due to tho successive encroachments of Gormany, Russia and Franco, Mr. Col quiioun expresses tho belief that not ono of theso powers can havo pausod to con sider what tho disruption of a polity embracing upward of .100,000,000 human beings really means. Ho Is convinced that, even in tho cynical period in which wo live, only professed Anarchists would be capublo of lending n hand deliberately to accel erate such n calamity. Mr. Colquiioun, for his part, knows what anarchy in China would mean, for he witnessod the Talplng rebellion, In tho course of which hundreds of cities wero converted Into cover for wild beasts and tons of millions of lives woro destroyed. Tho humano motives which should pi ompt all civilized nations to avert tho disintegra tion and collopso of tho Celestial Emplro are reinforced In tho case of Great Britain and the United States by powerful incen tives of anothorklnd. All tho preeminently commercial peoples, among which, in spito of an occasional freak upon tholr Kalsor's part, tho Germans must bo Included, havo tho strongest interest in preventing tho re currence of such colossal devastation as marked tho Talplng- upheaval. A wasted ami depopulated country Is of no use to tho trader. On tho other hand China, so long ns bho rctuius nn organized Government, competent to uphold ppaco ami order, with oven an approach to otllcicney, is a mlno of wealth to all thoso nations which nro inteicsted In the prosecution of hon est Unfile. To such nations, which may ho described compendiously ns tho Anglo Teutonic, It Is n matter of vital moment that old China should not bo broken up, but rather that tho cracks In it should, If possible, bo stoutly riveted. Mr.CoLQUHOUN fully concurs wlthlBaron Riciithofen in thinking that. If tho Mid dle Kingdom can only be held together, there Is no limit to the possibilities of Its de velopment. He avers that by the introduc tion of railways, steamboats, manufactories, iHHIHBiaMHHHHMaHHHHHH and Improved mining appliances, by tho in fusion of the new nervous forco represented by the Western spirit nnd by tho application of Western principles nnd methods of no tion, tho resources of China In men and material may bo rendered capnblo of provid ing profitable employment for whlto men for centuries toconio. Horo lies tho great unde veloped estate, which tho present genera tion of tho Anglo-Saxon raco can leavrt to their over-Increasing offspring, nn Inherit anco richer than all tho prairies and gold mines In tho world, becauso It Is nn enor mous lilvo of Industry, only needing dlrec ' Ion, nnd possessed of capacities for con- umptlon commensurate with Its unrivalled powers of production. Mr. Colquhoun ffeoms It certain that, had tho British and American peoples been alive to tho .Aalueof this prlzowhen tho sorlea of re cent encroachments upon China's territorial Integrity began, thoy would hnvo insisted upon safeguarding their own proclous in terests, nud thoy would not havo Buffered tho emplro to bo sequestrated at tho hands of European military Slates. It may bo thnt it is too late to undo what has been dono, but the rapid progress already mado In disintegration furnishes nn imperative reason for conserving what Is loft. How Is this to be offected ? Mr. Col quiioun answers that China is in tho condi tion of an Invalid whoso llf o can bo saved only by tho transfusion of healthy blood. Tho system has to bo rovlvod cautiously, not by violence, but by tact nnd patience. Out of tho present drift toward chaos a now order has to bo ovolved, undor which tho prosperity of tho Chlneso pcoplo may ndvanco nt on oven paco with tho legitimate Interests of tho foreign nntlonBthat seek profit from com mercial and financial relations with tho Mlddlo Kingdom. It Is, in other words, foreign capital and foreign enterprise that aro required to prescrvo and fertil ize this valuable Held of trafllc. China noeds to havo her communications opened up, her industries organized, her hidden wealth brought to tho surface, and her nat ural products turned to account. It is, moreover, tho infiltration of capital and skilled direction that will serve as n lover by which tho Governments of Great Britain and tho United States may bo moved eventually to tako an actlvo part In pro moting China's wolfarc. Mr. Colquhoun insists that only through tho adoption of such a policy of con servation on tho part of the mercantile nations can tho predatory powers be kept from ravaging tho Celestial Emplro and precipitating anarchy and ruin among the largest population on tho faco of tho earth. Ho welcomes tho concession of a railway between Canton nnd Hankow to an Ameri can syndlcato ns an event of happiest au gury, for tho reason that every mllo of railroad, every steam factory, every holo dug in tho ground In the Interior of China, under cither British or American auspices, is a gain to tho wholo commercial world. The Men nt tho Top. In sonio previous elections In this city tho safeguards established by law for hon est registration and a fair count havo been ineffective because prosecutions for their violation hnvo only been made, against of fenders of tho poorer and meaner sort. Here and there a tramp, a lodging-house "llonter,"n political suspect, a " tin boldier" or a poor wretch without a ilxcd nbode, has been tangled In the meshes of tho law, but tho big offenders havo escaped becaiibo they wore not proceeded ngalnst. Now, crimes agnlnbt tho franchise and the legal rights of citizens generally do not hao tholr origin in tho bciieming of homeless men to whom a two-dollar bill is a consideration of valuo and lo whom a one dollar bill may bo a serious provocation to crimo on election day. Such crimes aro planned nnd carried through by political leaders whoso party friends nro tho beneil ciaries of them. Theso leaders aro tho principals; tho wretched social castaways caught in offending ngalnst tho election laws in Now York aro only tho tools. It so happens tills year that nearly every district leader, district captain or district worker who meditates fraud or has ulroudy been responsible for fraud in tho registry or tho balloting is a public official who is holding some offlco which on conviction ho would forfeit, besides incurring tho other penalties. Thoy nro usually mon of means, and, In some cases, tho dlsbursers of large election funds. Thoy are tho big fish. Let all thoso who aro churged with sc ouring an honest election In New York, hero In the city or through tho Stnto, keep their eyes on tho principals and not be diverted from watching them by tho neces sity of approhendlng their morn ogonts, and two balutary results will bo achieved : Tho election laws will bo, mado to uppoar just in their enforcement, nnd there will bo an honest election and u fair count. Tho Munx Shukrsprnrc. It had become the general impression, de rived from Mr. Hall Caine'b not Infre quent speeches slnco ho camo to this coun try, that ho had consented to absent him self from tho Isle of Man a llttlo while for tho purpose of promoting a cordial feeling betweon tho United States and Great Bri tain. Wherever and whenever ho hns pre sented horo tho play to which lio has given tho honor of bearing tho namo of pno of tho novels which ho manufactures with so much dust and heat, he has declared in words of feeling calculated to touch every fooling heart In tho audlenco that this kind recep tion of a visiting British author should bo regarded as an ovldcnco and a result of tho growing kindness betwoon two nations of tho 6a me language, and so on. It Is truo that earnest students of Mr. Caine'S works havo been unablo to verify his impression as to tho language uood in thoso Immortal transports of tho type writer, but hla friendly intontlon was not tho lees beautiful on thnt account. Wo looked upon him reverently as upon ft fountain of International comity, and felt that he was laboring In his way, no less actively than tho Anclont and Honorable Artillery Company In Ita way, to mako tho United States and Great Britain lovocach other. Tho detractors of patient merit and Invinclblo modesty in both countries might hurl their back-wounding cnlumnleb. They lnlht pretend that n courso in the novels, dramas, speeches, lectures nnd mis cellaneous impiwlng observations of Mr. Caine could breed In the American pen. plo only nn Inteiibo desire for war w 1th tho country that permit tori Mich u genius to wander from Its own llrcslde; but goqd men felt thnt lictowns n foice for pence. A lasting peace, for Mr. Cai.vk Is no less renowned for wisdom than for ills readiness to communicate It, nud may bo depended upon to visit us often and instruct us long If the returns contluuo favorable. This was enough to mako us all happy, nnd, as for Mr. Caine, he is constitutionally happy, as men conscious of a great mission ought tp be. In the shadow of bis forehead and his works BHlBHHBaBlHBHIMHHiHBMBasHI two nations could dwell At peace, stepplnc up to tho box offlco with duo frequency. It seems, however, that tho Manx Shaee hi'carb brings oven moro than peaco in his beneficent hands. Tho othor day he In vited a number of clergymen and their families to seo a special performance of his play. Though somewhat of n preacher himself, ho feels no Jealousy of clergymen nnd Is willing to do them good. At tho end of tho third nctlio appeared with a full net of remarks. Theso remarks, It should bo added, aro justly treasured, and no per formance is considered complete without them. Mr. Caink Is a mind reader, and ho sees In the faces of his hearers a demand for him nnd a speech oven before they daro to put their yearning Into words. So ho came out nt, tho end of tho third net and naked himself theso questions : " Ii th thftttra uonl fore t Doi It eentributa anythuiK tonl tha food that make tha bona ami olnawof tho race V Thcro could be no doubt as to the correct nnswer. In tho Strntford SnAKEsrXAitK's days tho theatro was not all it should havo been, but in our happier tlmo 11 had been rodocmed, disenthralled, annexed to mo rality by tho universal genius of Mr. Hall Oaine. Ho is not only a missionary of in ternational comity and an advance agent of tho millennium ; ho Is amoral forco in tho theatro and a feeder of tho bono and slnow of thorace. Tennyson's "Promlseof May" wnsdnmned.but tho poet was consolod, by moil, by Mr. HallCaine, even then prophe sying of tho moral force of tho drama. Finally Mr. Caine told his guests at tho theatre that ho would bo "pleased nnd touched and abundantly repaid" if they thought " that no man was going to think less of religion for having seen this play." Without having polled that distinguished company, wo think It safo to assum Mr. Caine that it did not think less of religion. But did it think less of Mr. Oadje'U play ? Should Hostilities Conic. It Is hardly conceivable that the situa tion at Paris can result in tho renewal of war by Spain. To attempt this on her own resources would, of courso, bo madness, and thoro Is not tho slightest sign that any other country would share her folly. In deed, Spain's ill luck, which has boon as phcnomonal through tho war as her want of military and naval skill, may bo said to continue ; for at this moment tho critical affairs of Europe would prevent uny nation from linking its fortunes with hers against us. Tho Vo8si8che Zeitung thinks that a court of arbitration would award tho Phil ippines neither to us nor to Spain ; but wo do not propose to arbitrate. On tho remote supposition, howovcr, of a rcnownl of tho war, wo should be better pro pared than ever for It. Porto Rico Is ours, nnd tioops havo been soleotcd for tho occu pation of Cuba, comprising the First, Sec ond and Seventh Corps. Tho first trans ports could start within a fow days, and It would Ixi absolutely impossible for Blanco to prevent them from landing their troops. Tho season most favorablo to campaigning in Cuba is now at hand. Tho Iowa and Oregon, with their Hoct of colliors and supply Bhlps, nro already south of the Equator, on their way to tho Paclllc, nnd oven without them tho renewal of the war would bo tho blgnal for tho reduction of every Spanish coast garrison in the Philippines, leaving the archipelago fully in our hands. Tho Charleston nnd Concord havo just gone to Iloilo, the chief Spanish port remaining. The Buffalo is on her way to Manila, with men for Dewey's fleet, by way of Suez, nnd more troops havo gono within a week from San Francisco. As for tho Atlantic fleet, over slnco the return of Admiral Sampson's vessels from Santiago repairs havo gono on, and wo could hurry a formidable squadron to tho shores of Spain. The placo of tho Iowa and Ore gon could bo taken in a short tlmo by tho Kcarsargo and tho Kentucky. Spain knows that resuming hostilities would not only subject her to harder terms, but might overthrow tho reigning house and'porhaps tho throno itsolf. Overtime. Our esteemed contemporary, tho Roches ter Herald, watching from tha treotops for n chanco to flro a shot at Theodore Roose velt, puffs out with a blank cartridge that demands about thirty seconds of comment : " TiiEopone Rooblvilt haa noTer known what it -wan to work ono nilauto longer than hla whtm might induce blm to. Hit note baa nerar approached the erindatone, and hla handa, for all that he baa bad to do, tnlcht be aa soft aa any woman'!." Slnco ho left college, at the ago of 22, Roosevelt's Boss, oxcept for the fow years when he was engaged In ranching nnd writ ing, has been tho Stato. This ho has served with energy that nover spared his strength, and devotion that novor stopped to balance work and wages. Down nt Santiago, whither Dcmooratlo sneers ut Roosevelt constantly take us, tho extra hours that Roosevelt labored and the stratus of effort und privation which ho endured in looking after tho welfaro of tho men commanded by him, may not bo in history, but their mark has been put upon the heartof every RoughRidor. Roosevelt worked overtime without n time-keeper. That's what gavo to his regiment, every man of it, regardless of race, religion or political partisanship, the passlonnte liking for him thut has slnco manifested itself at every opportunity, Roosevelt's nose, which the Rochester Herald discusses, has been pressed to the grindstone with a forco that would hnvo ground moro than one ordinary face flat. Our esteemed contorapornry also talks about his hands. If it will depute a cham pion to put his own hands up before Col. Roosevelt, wo guarantee that ho will Und Roosevelt's hands as bard and hoavy as they nro white. Piiilii' B. Low lias made an excellent Coneresiniaii.

Bourko Corkrnn Speaks Again nn the Grcateet of l'reaent Iaaucs. Among tho speakers who were prooont at tho banquet given by tho Lotos Club last Saturday night In honor of Lord Hcrschell was tho Hon.

In tho courso ot lib re marks Mr. Cockran said: "It has been, as your Chairman has well said this evening, the custom of fostivo boards nnd of all pubile gatherings during the past year to pay attention almost exclusively to men of the sword. Nations have boon too busy crowning the soldiers who have extended tholr borders to Rive much thought to tho magistratos.who maintain the principles ot order within their borders. It is a relief and a pleasant ojio to welcome perhaps the most conspicuous among English Judges to our board to-night and to acKnowIedge soma of that mighty debt which we owe to the magistrates who slnco the time ot G&scolgnn have Deeu apostles of liberty, nnd "flave novor failed to invent a means of nullify ing an oppressive law and otannullng measures which weighed upon the rights of the citizen. "Lord Herschell has said what I havo often heard before, thnt this Government Is modelled upon the Governmontof Great Britain. I do not quite concede the accuracy ot that, but I do say that thcro Is one inheritance which wo have claimed and obtained from the mother country which has been of priceless value to this Gov ernment, which has been tho very vital princi ple of our republic, and that Is respect for tho judiciary. (ApplntiRO.I Some men may ques tion tho policy of English statesmen, they may refuse to approve of tho acts of Lngltsli execu tive officers, they may doubt the wisdom of England's deslro to extend her emplro overro luctant pooplen. but the whole world knows that England honors nnd res poets her judiciary, and for that she has been paid tho slucero compli ment of imitation. Appln'iso.l " Our Constitution, of which wo aro so proud, seems to have been conceived in a spirit ot wisdom so broad and so lofty as almost to sug. Best Inspiration. Yet ovory principle, which is contained In it is almost as old as the opera tion of the human mind: every principle laid down for the piotectlon of liberty has been recognized by mon as far as history extends. There has been ono nrlglnnl contribution, n distinctly American contribution, to the civil ization of the world and to the security of freo Institutions, and that Is tho establishment of nn Independent judiciary equipped with power to protect tho rights of tlio humblest citizen against the aggression of all thowoild com bined.

To tiik Editor of Tub Sun-SiV.- When Theodoro Roosevelt was President of ths Board of Polico Commissioners I lectured on "Camp Lifo and limiting" In tho free lscturs courso in dome twenty-odd schools and hulls In vnrlous parts of New York city. In the courso of tho locture I showed a pie. turoof Mr. Roosovolt In hunting costume, in troducing him as a bear hunter as well as a beer hunter, nnd rioting his qualities as a sportsman, including the fact that ho is a fins rifle shot and has killed nil tho varieties of big ) game to bo found In tho United States. Tho montlon Invariably provoked applause. and In ovory case where I had a largo audience, and largo audiences are a rule In this course, I was obliged to wait somo time before I could continue speaking. IA a few instances, as in the Norfolk street school, near Chatham f-auarc. hissing wns mlnglod with the applausA. but even horo tho applause was much the morn noteworthy. At tho Hobrow Instltuto an an dlonco of a thousand representative east-slds cltlzons was rousod to enthusiasm by tha men tion ot tho name which has since gained so much added lustre, and an equally largo Au dlenco nt tho Columbus Hall ot tho Cat hollo Club was similarly enthusiastic.
