Cr the paper cannot be serU, at no accounts are kept icitti mail subscription*. While the other large railroad companies doing business in New York state have cheer fully bowed to the will of the people and abol ished the coal atove from their passenger cars, the Sew York. Sew Haven and Hertford has held out, taking issue with the commissioners on the language of the statute. It seems that the stove law is made to apply to roads 50 miles long. The rebellious company has one several hundred miles long, but only 26 miles of it* rails are actually witiiin the state of Sew York. The attorney-general holds, and ap parently with good reason, that the act was in tended to cover all roads of the specified length which lie wholly or in part in Sew York, and hits carried a suit for 17,000 of penalties successfully through the special term of the Supreme Court. The General Term and the Court of Appeals have ?till to pass npon it. What the legislature in tended to do, obviously, was to protect any per son who traveled for more than two or three hours over one road, regardless of the question whether the whole of the journey was made in side of the state boundaries or a part of it outside. One result of the struggle of the Sew Haven company is likely to be a more stringent provision tacked on the law next winter. The rival ocean steamers are monotonously breaking the record in respect to the time oc cupied in voyages. Hour after hour is cut away from the previous fastest run. It might be well to change temporarily the form of com petition. Let the struggle be for a while to determine which steamer can furnish the best safety appliances for passengers in case of j shipwreck. Assuming that according to the present record small boats and rafts enough are carried by the average steamer to save a frac tion of the crew and passengers, let the race now be to break the record by increasing that fraction instead of by reducing the time of voyage. Ocean travelers will approve heartily the proposed new form of competition. A philanthropic citizen of Harvey county, Kansas, has planted three miles of peach trees along the public highway. He takes the trou ble to explain that it is "for the benefit of travelers." If it had been for the benefit of the sin ill boys of the neighborhood, in the hope of luring them to keep out of the philan thropic citizen's orch ird. it could have been written down as a flat failure from the start. There is not a boy of ordinary mould who would not rather get a single peach out of a yard with a high picket fence than gorge him self with a thousand which he could have for the mere trouble of picking them up by the roadside. Last night ex-President Cleveland was warmly welcomed to private life in Sew York city by Got. Hill and other enthusiastic friends. Mr. Cleveland in the course of his speech declined to apologize to the democracy or to confess dis loyalty. and intimated that as a partisan Presi dent he had done the best he could, in view of the proposition "that parties should, no more than indivi-taals. be untruthful and dishonest." In the heat of his disclaimer of party disloy alty Mr. Cleveland said some very compli mentary things concerning the democratic party. He admitted that "shiftiness" has in fluenced democratic party conduct only at times, while he declared this shiftiness to be the "habitual device" of democracy's oppo nents. He also found reason to eulogize democracy, which has at present no fed eral appointments to bestow, in the fact that it does "not use the promise and bestowal of place for the purpose of stilling the press and bribing the people." This dig at President Harrison and his foreign appointments, which in part utilize the brains and energy of news paper men for the benefit of the public service, ought to be especially pleasing to those who resent th-? filling of offices with those blanked j "literary fellers." Doubtless the reconciliation between Mr. Cleveland and "the politicians" is now complete. The difficulty which any administration has i?? satisfying its enemies is aptly illustrated by the comments of two Boston papers on the case of the American women who are alleged to have been ill-treated in France. The demo cratic Globe, which evidently expects an act of | quick retaliation from this side of the water, declares that "for two great nations to go to war about a dressmaker's bill would be a little too much like comic opera." The mugwump Herald, ,% the other hand, looking for a course of act' J ? precisely the reverse, says that the incident "appears to furnish occasion for an airing of the vigorous foreign policy of the State department," and expresses its gratifica- J tion "that orders have been given for some more gunboats." There is a consoling reflec tion for Secretary Blaine in view of this dis parity of judgment between his critics; which ever way he moves in the matter, he is bound to silence one or the other class. ???? m? ? The city cannot afford to take any backward Step in the matter of ridding itself of cobble stones between railroad tracks. The use of an improved motor as decided upon for 7th street and contemplated for other streets is coupled by law with the abolition of the projecting rails. The companion nuisance of a cobble atone ridge between the tracks must also go. The enforcement of orders now in existence will gradually effect this improvement. The last excuse for the cobble-stoues. and that not a sufficient one. will be gone when the horse is displaced as a motive power by electricity or a cable syst< m. For the smooth surface of | Washington streets has been permitted to be broken by projecting ridges of uneven cobble stones mainly ou the plea that the scrambling car horse would be thereby furnished better foothold in slippery weather. The way the French press has of jumping with both feet upon anybody who casts a friendly glance in the direction of Germany is not conducive to future agreeable relations with its victim. A few years ago it was Alfonso, ?f Spam, who had to be taken out of Paris by a back gate because he had accepted a purely honorary title from the German war office. Sow it is Humbert, of Italy, who, having ven tured to make a lutle visit to his imperial kins man in Berlin, to drink the health of everybody there, as a well-bred guest should do. aud to accept an invitation to a pleasure trip across the Khine, is receiving abuse and contumely by the thousand ems froui the journals of the French capital. What a marvel it is that Pres ident Cleveland did not get a blast of some sort for his temerity in sendiug condolences on the death of Emperors William and Frederick! The announcement of the advent of the sev enteen-year locust this spring as usual gives point to the witticism that the insect derives its name from the fsct that it comes regularly for seventeen years in succession. But, for that matter, so does the joke. Soch a fickle month as May has been ought to stimulate the faculty of invention among men with any genius of that sort at alL There is a fortune in store for somebody who will de vise a telescopic umbrella which can be shut ap and carried in the pocket, and a pair of gossamer overshoes which, when out of use. will fit into the crown of a Derby hat wisfr^p materially increasing its weight.
