New York, Sept. 25.—Bradley B.

Smallpy said that while Allen re ceived 1200 of the 1500 votes, he was the only candidate for the position who is eligible, if the conclusions of Cnairman Carter, of the Republican, and Chair man Harrity, of the ivmocratic national committee, are correct. By advice of counsel, both chairmen have written a letter advising any per son who may have been nominated pre sidential electors, aud who are directors of national banks, or who hold public offices of trust or profit to withdraw for fear that they might prove ineligible. "The fact is," said Smalley, "that under this construction bi th Fuller and myself were ineligible, for we are both directors of a national bank. The con stitution of the state of Vermont is very rigid on this point. Besides affect ing Fuller's election, it will also debar several members of the Vermont legis lature from being sworn In."

We may say what we will about the efficiency of our quarantine; its methods have been a jumble of stupidity and brutality, with scarcely a trace of executive ability. "Our conductof this business not only has been a disgrace to the American nation, but a stigma on the history of the Anglo Saxon race. And for thiß we must thank our pot-house politicians whose life principle is 'to the victor be longs the spoils.' "We have learned that there are great steamship companies who don't hesi tate to sell the health of 62,000.000 peo ple in America for the price of the steer age passage of a few hundred poverty stricken refugees. KveTy city in Amer ica ie at the mercy of New York.
