Heaxteaay on the Purchase of Juill olal Nominations. JoOce McOall'h method of dealing with Mr. ITr.NNERSY's allegations was trtralfhtfonvard and adequate. He In vited Mr. Hr.N.vr.ssY to put Into writ Ing what he had repeatedly said In woitia of mouth and thus to bring him self Within the range of the penal stat trie concerning criminal libel. Thus the Judicial process which Mr. Uennkssy seemed to desire would be at his dis posal for tho verification of his rclter nted charge about the purchase from CllAKLts V. Murphy of a place on the Supreme Court bench.

The recntninendn Judge McCai.i. asked lilm to repeat In l lions have In do with the Ireatmeiit of the form of criminal libels. In order ' that Mr. Hi:nm:sry might be prose cuted for them criminally. Ia this the lighter, the bulldog, the relentless, untcrrillod Hr.N.NKssv? On Ttifxlay evening. October ill, at Nlblo's Harden In The Bronx. Mr. John Hennehnv was reported as saying: "Let Judge McCall answer where did he tret the money tcAUh he paid oner tolns they are described. Kverybodv will Murfiit runt Plcnkitt tor the nominn-. ,..ish ,, ,,. ,.. .,, ,,-, ... lion or Supreme Court Justice." On Wednesday evening In SuIzot'b Harlem Hlver Park Mr. Hknneshy aid: "When Mr. Mur.rar says It is nonsense to eay that McCall paid anybody. Mr. UtriPliY lies, and ho known he lies." These are tho slanders which the dauntless Hf.nnessy had the opportu nity to assert by 11 written statement making them criminal libels if false; and these are the slanders which do j not appear in his letter of yesterday 1Judgn MrCAl.1. re whole matter ofVtho alleged purchase by Mr. McCai.i, from Mr. Muuriiv of 11 Judicial nomi nation tapcra down In the defiant Hi:n nemy's actual handwriting to this ex ceedingly remote, meek and slanlen dkmlar mIIuhIou; "You nay that Inspector McLaughlin did not lend you tho money In pay for your nomination, nor did you pay any body for It. I never said McLauohlin lent you tho money. I asked you whether you had gotten your campaign fund from an Inspector nf pollen or from some other source, and distinctly stated, as tho sten ographic reports will show, that I might not bo ublo to prove wlicro you got Iho money, but that It was up to you to tell tho people." It will eeem plain to even ordi nary candor that tho Itold Hennfbsy has oKned his mighty Jaws juid swal lowed himself bodily. His main charge illsapears absolutely In his written mid signed letter. There is unpleasant Innuendo, perhaps; but how little of that, and from Hknnknsv! Observe tho similar disappearance of Mr. Hknnehhy'h other charge 'about the $:tr.,000 purchase of a Judicial iiniu 1 1 1 it t Ion by another Justice of the Su premo Court, name not mentioned but Mifllclently Indicated. Here Ih Mr. Hl.NNF.HBV ou Wednesday evening hist til tho Sulzer Harlem Park: "I lell Mr. Muiil'HT that I have held ill my fund Ihe notn for 1.15,0011 and morn than I have held the mile for 135,000 - signed by another Justice of the Su pirnie ("our! who was one of Mr. Mit. niT'a altei native 1 audhhitcx for Mayor" And here Is HhNNKhsY 011 Thursday Wiring at the Stuyvcsnut Casino, after Muipiiy had ohallotiged him to name the Supreme Conn Justice whose note for ..'tr.(KK) he professed Ik have wen : 'It acorns to me that Mr. ML'nrilT muat be In doubt hs lu which t3.r,00n note I mean. He may bo anxious fur mo to give Mm the flrat crack at the news, but I will keep him waiting a little while." The atmosphere this week Is becom ing n little clearer, but the clarifica tion i In uo wise due to Mr. Hr.S- SMSY'd roarlnic. They continue, hut In a painfully modified tone. They enn scarcely be said to he leonine, or even tatirisiitiltie; we are compelled to say that the voice sounds to the Impartial ear more like that of the hyenn. The performance during the pasti seven day of Mr. John Hknnf.sry has made him If not the most conspicuous, certainly the noisiest figure In the cam paign for Mr. John I'ubhoy Mitchf.l The noise has been phenomenally out of proportion to the proven facts. Mr. Hennf.sby has asserted things which, If true, he ought to prove, mid for which, If false, he ought to be held le gally responsible. It Is a great gain for public morality and civic elf-resect that a way has now been found, In spite of his own default of opportu nity, to subject Mr. Iiiinniohsy's charges to Judicial examination through action by the appointed guardians of the pub lic peace and order. Meanwhile, Mr. John Pprrov Mit chki. Is silent. What Is his opinion, its a public man and a candidate, of all this? Does he stand for Hunnusky? Does he stand by 1If.rnf.rsy? The voters have the right to know. A Oootl Plare for Mayor Kline's 1'oot to tin Down. Mayor Ki.ink should follow the ex celleut precedent established by Mayor McCu.m.an aud prevent the promised "tagging" of cltlr-ens which Is to begin to-day. The fact that scores of young women nre to Infest the street. II censed by their common purHse to beg money for the coffers of the Mltchel Minpalgn may embarrass the Mayor, hut IiN duly Is plain. This method of money collecting, highly objectionable In any town, is utterly unlit In be practtses.1 In New York. The fact that the taking- nf the young women are to be devoieel to ,-i political on tlx- docs tint make the scheme more commendable. If Interference with the plans of a political committee Is distasteful to the Mayor, tie may comfort himself wllh the reflection Mint all seu-lble persons applauded Mayor .Mit'im.i ex's, linn stand when a project of -uuli.ir nature was xiuclchcd liy htm.

The i'erprtuattnnorc.rneral lluerla. 11 must be neknowledeA-d that lien era! HuraiA Is a politician of no mean ability. He has held the national elec tions on time In spite of a Cougress that wanted to exercise the constitutional function of posttMinlng them until the country wus pacllled, and there has been no choice of a candidate for Presi dent ; but a Congress subservleut to Cenernl Hvf.bta has been elected. The new Congress will meet lu November to deal with the elecllon returns, a labor that should no! lax Its energies; and the duty will devolve uon II, as no President has been chosen, of providing for another election. The time of course will be fixed to suit General IIitiita, but fur enough In the future to give him an opportunity to suppress the rebellion with the 11 nay, 1 vv .11- creased to IHO, 000 men. If Hie Presidential election was to be such a farce, why was It held at all? lieneral IIimiiia, who represents what limy bo termed the ruling class In Mex ico, that Is to yy the great landowners nnd the old exclusive Hoclety (hut wants 110 change, could answer the question If he were so disposed. Hut his testl inoiiy Is not required (he case Is clear enough. There Is 110 doubt that (he ruling class" regards (ieneral Hitrta as Hie one strong mini who can "pacify the country and put a quietus upon radical reforms, of which the redlvl slon of laud Is the most formidable. Moreover the Hurnpeiiii Powers with large Interests In Mexico prefer a man 011 horseback like Heneral HriRTV to 11 civilian, or 1 1 a mini. try puppet 11 lie 11.1 ix I Max. ill the present unsettled stale of the counlry, It therefore became necessary to per THE SUN, petunte tho Tluerta regime and to take no risk of an undesirable succeeding hlui. The safest method was to hold elections that would not elect on Oc tober I'll. It cannot be doubted that If the programme had been to promote the campaigns of Oamhoa, Caixko and Diaz and to encourage registered voters to go to the polls there would have been a valid election, nut there was no campaign worth the name by any can didate, and on election day there were no printed ballots lit the Interests of Ma.ni'm. Cai.ibo. the candidate of the normally strong Liberal party, while IYi.ix Diaz feared for his life so much that he refused to leave his hotel lu Yera Cruz, next door to the American consulate. It li true that Oeneral Hum. might have brought about his own choice for the Presidency, for he held all the trump cards In the olltlcal game. The con stltlltlomtl objection could easily have been overcome. Has not fiencr.il IIUF.RTA reis-ntcdly overridden the Con stmitionv Hilt the tieneral is not a small calibre politician. The policy of the Cnlteil States hail to be considered. If he had yielded to the temptation of electing himself on the face of (he re turns there would have been a creater strain upon Mexican relations with tin United States than ever, nor could lu entertain any hope of recognition after his Inauguration. As things prearranged have turned out, ticiieral Ilt't.uTA Is assured of a lew of power for some time to come, and he has rather strengthened than weakened his credit with the Kuro pea 1 1 nations that are i1Is1kis-.-.1 hi -up-Mirt him. So far us the fulled State Is concerned, he Is lu a stronger n sltlou as a dictator, and with no hostile Congress to Interfere with his plans he can harry the rebels lu the north and south with a fairer prospect of raising money for a military campaign on a large scale. The future lu Meleo I hard to forecast from day today. Men like IlrtRTA in Hull country hae usu ally been unhorsed, but It mist ho al lowed that he plas the game well.

The change In men's fashions th.it drove iho frock coat out of lis e.clll-ie place was par tleularly discouraging to owners of this enduring garment, frock co.Ms hae his'ii known to p.iss from one generation to another.

I'katt and .Ierrt Hi.mumon. He is a perpetual candidate. but In spite of him the army continues to fight, taxes harass, and beans ap preciate. In Mexico of all countries the hope he Is leading seems forlorn. Kven General Hpkrta regards him as n Joke, for nobody was prevented ftom voting for Zi'MUA on Sunday, and In the slums he had some supporters who could see no need of taxes or of prices for the staples of life. Has this friend of poverty uny fu ture In Mexico? Time was when I'ok- fikio Diaz regarded Francisco Madero as a harmless lunatic, but at last Diaz moved out of the National Palace and Mamkro moved In. Senor Zitnioa will not succeed In abolishing either the army or taxes, but if Mexico ever be comes as progressive ns Kansas or Ore gon the appeal of the crack brained gentleman would rally round him a dan gerous army of the discontented. In fact even now Don Nicholas might be a disturbing element If the capital were given over to chaos and the mob was loosing for a leader who shared Its views about the burning Iniquity of pri vate poveity.

The plain statement by Capt IUi:r. as to the part played by the Carnianla in the Volttirno disaster, added to the tes timony of Captain Inch nnd the chief engineer of the Volttirno, should effect ually dispose of the cruel and unwar rantable insinuations that were freely circulated concerning the conduct of the Carmanla's captain. Any seaman knows the difficulty of handling a large l. tjk fewtfc Ktmjy.Mv Lci-.c sea When il was practicable to effect a lescue by means of small lsials the te.s of the fleet that was standing by wa& able to do all that was necessary. Cap tain lUKit made one attempt to manu'ii vre his vessel near enough In launch boats, but found that he was only en dangering his own and other ships. Wisely, therefore, he desisted. The testimony of the chief engineer of ihe Volttirno coincides with that of Captain Hark: "They could not all have handled boat safely. Somebody had to keep on the outside. The Carnianla did great work with her searchlight." Captain Himi's use of the Carmanla's seach llghi and his summons to the oil ship Narragansett may have been less rpec taeniae than the launching of boats mi an errand of rescue would have been, but were probably u great deal mote useful, Now that Mr. Sii.zi:tt has made so fair a beginning by offering In pay for the dog soap used In I'atsuv's ah lullons at the "People's House" Is It not reasonable to suppose that Mr. Sen ikk will soon be favored wllh a check from the former Coventor o( New York for JL',.100?
