WEDNSDAY, JULY 27, 1881,
That was a very apt suggestion which
Cullcrtou mndu to strike “the Chicago Driv
ing Park” from Lawler’s resolution of In
quiry In regard to gambling. Such a change
would have- made the resolution direct tho
Chief of Police to report by what authority
gambling is allowed, not at tho races atone,
but throughout tho city. It seems to be idle
to inquire about gambling devices at the
races when faro-banks and keno-rooms, with
open doors and Haring lights, are tolerated
anywhere In the city. Onmbllng would seem
to be better lilted to a race-track than to tho
business district of, the city, and It is not
easy to understand why Aid. Lawler is so
solicitous about tho farmer and apparently
not ono bit concerned about.the latter. But
the whole subject was referred lo a commit
tee, in whose hands It will probably repose
lu (pdet, while gambling wilt go on, both at
the race-track and in the city, as usual.
Tin: Tnmuxß has already had occasion to
refer to tho case of tho Bev. Edward Cow
ley, who, having done tho Slate some service
In tho garb u convict for cruelly'to oho
Louis Victor, a child placed under Ids earo
In tho “Shepherd’s fold,” Is now receiving
the attentions of Ids sympathizing ecclesias
tical brethren. It should ho remembered,
however, both by tho public and by Mr.
Cowley’s demonstrative ministerial friends,
that Mr. C. has ns yet only been tried and
punished for one single offense. He was In
dicted by the Brand Jury for some thirty or
forty similar cases of.cruelty, tho Stale being
the complainant in each ease on behalf of a
different chl}d, the evidence being substan
tially tho same. When tried, tho District-
Attorney agreed to prosecute tho other in
dictments us soon as each term of Imprison
inontcxplrod,ithnvlngboenheUUn New York
that tho defendant could nut he tried on all
tho counts at once. Now Is the lime for the
District-Attorney to redeem his pledge; The
other children were Justus cruelly treated us
Louis Victor, although they have probably
grown somewhat stouter in the llesh since
the “Shepherd’s” Incarceration.' That lids
miserable specimen of a man and disgrace to
tho priesthood should he outside of tho liars
ns long ns a too-mcrclful I’rovldenee spares
his life fellccts severely on the Now York
administration of Justice. Try him on llto
next Indictment, Mr, District-Attorney, and
then keep it going 1
Tin: fact that the 4 * llre-bncs” who propose
to expose this city to new danger of destruc
tionby lire dhl not get'np their ordinance at
the regular meeting of the Connell Monday
* night, us was predicted, seems lu Imllcalo
that they are not so sure of a majority
In that body us they professed to bo.
This fact should not, however, be per
mitted to abatu the vigilance of .the
Citizens’ Association mid the Underwriters
in opposing Urn scheme for contracting the
llro-llmlls. Thu prombters of this project
have not abandoned It, Thu delay In urging
the mutter in the Connell only means that
they are still at work on the Aldermen. The
reputation which some of the members of
the present Connell have acquired nmtthe
rumors la regard to recent transactions war
rant the Inference limb the “Hre-hugs” are
bringing corrupt Inllucuees to bear upon
Aldermen. A real-estate pool at the back of
such a project will not hesitate to promise u
share of the expected prollts to such mem
bers of the Council ns will assist thorn. In
the meantime Urn material Interests of the
whole city are menaced by the proposition
to authorize the erection of frame buildings
in the very districts which are alreadymost
hazuvdous; and every property-owner, every'
business-man, and every cltl/.ep who under
stands the Importance to u great city of safe
Insurance should unite In the dibit to defeat
a scheme which will drive nmnyot the best
eoluhanles uwfiy from Chicago and Induce
those who remain lo Increase their charges

Tnnnnlsafttnkhigconlrast between the way
in which highway robbers nml assastns are
dealt, with In tlic,-Northwest and Southwest.
The (iovernor of Wisconsin has ordered out
tho.mlltary to assist the posse of private citi
zens who linvn undertaken to hunt down tho
Williams brothers. These men recently killed
two officers at Durand, and have taken to
tho woods in company with, other outlaws.
Minnesota lias shown a determination to
maketlielotofthohigliwayinen’a very mi
happyone in that region, and. deals promptly
and vigorously with desperadoes of every
class. Ilut the people of Missouri seem to
contemplate train-robbing, and the murders
Incident thereto, ..with great .complacency,
'there.. Inis been . no., uprising ..among
the- Missourians,. and no evidence of
unusual alertness among Urn - ofilccrs
of the law. The robbery of the train
near Winston, a few* weeks ago, the
murder of tho .conductor and another man,
and tho endangering of tho lives of all the
passengers, are treated ns a passing event of
no great importance. Wo; have' heard of no
incentive In tho shape of large rewards for
Uio apprehension of the outlaws, no clfort
on the part of the r nuthoritics.of Urn State to
organize a vigorous pursuit, and no particu
lar evidence of public Indignation. It will
be found that tho Minnesota-and Wisconsin
methods will bo of more benefit' to those
communities than the apparent indifference
of tho authorities and people of Missouri
will be to tlmt Slate.. .Emigration to- the
.Northwest wifi increase, and emigration to
tho Southwest' will decrease, in proportion
to tho suppression of oullawlsm in the

THE DYNAMITE SENSATION.
Tho receipt at Liverpool of ten barrels sup
posed to contain cement but In reality con
taining the clock-work of toil dynamite In
fernal machines, shipped from this country
by two steamers, the Malta of the Canard
Line and tho llnvarian of tho Leylaud Line,
has created almost as much sensation In
England as if this country had suddenly de
clared war against- the United Kingdom.
According to the statement of Sir William
Jlnrcourt, Secretary of’State for the Homo
Department, to tho House of Commons, each
machine contained eleven cartridges, each of
which was charged with nllro-gtyccrine and
a compound similar to gun-cotton, and one
of tho supposed cement barrels had fourteen
pounds of this dangerous explosive material
In It. Tho barrels were seized at Liverpool,
upon iufummlian which the Uovernment hud
received In some mysterious manner, which
tho Secretary did not state.
‘ While it Is mailer for general
tion that the would-bo assaslns in this coun
try. if they are here, were foiled In their das
tardly plot, It is also, matter for. regret that
their capture may bo very difficult, as the
consignor used ‘ a fictitious 1 immo, and tho
bllisot lading wcro'inado nut to lletlllous
consignees In Liverpool. Under tho Naviga
tion laws they aro liable to severe punish
ment, and it is lo ho hoped thoy may bo
found nml punished to tho full extent of tho
law. Tho affair, of course, has given vise to
avarlety-of comment, some of the Tories,
who have no lovo for this country, being vio
lent In their denunciation, and- attribut
ing nil- sorts of incendiary motives to
tho Americans. ! Tho flovemment Itself,
however, treats tho matter with good sense,
and will cooperate with our own (liivnrn
meat In measures to stop these Shipments,
and it will llnd on this sldotlio water Just ns
Hi m Intention and elfurt to stop it as on that
There Is no need of any apprehension on
that score. Wo allow the widest liberty lu
freedom, of speech. Irishmen, when they
land here and those who are hero already,
can make as many grimaces and wry faces
at England and say an many hard things
about her as they please, for they have had
ample provocation, but assaslnatlon Is not a
means of redress that Americans will toler
ate, nor will they allow thulr 'country to bo
made tho base of nnfrlondly move
muiibi against any other country. Should
tho - plotters- In this infamous busi
ness bo discovered they wilt bo punished lo
tho extent of tho laws governing their cases,
mid tho (Sovornment will not bo stow in Its
efforts to ferret thorn out. This Is all that
England can Justly claim. The American
peoplo have ilo sympathy with crime or
violence of any description, nor, on the other
hand, have they any sympathy with tho op
pressions of English landlords or. the ex
actions of English laud laws that have driven
the Irish peoplo lo desperation anil!starva

THE 'VALENTINE BAKER CASE.
A uiiferenee of opinion- seems to exist In
England on the q uestion, *“ Wlmtls a gent lo
nian, or what goes to the milking of agon
tlenum'.I'* 1 '* Mr. Smalley Is the author of a
caustic letter on tho mibjcctof Col. Ahitoii
lino 'linker’s triumphant return to the bosom
of London society, linker, now known a*
•* Baker Pasha,” attempted to ravish a young
girl In the compartment uf u railway coach,
Ho was convicted of tho crime, but powerful

ment the Queen hud more Inllnenco than tho

him, and that Duku was no less a personage
than ho ot Sutherland. Tho man who had

position In tho Army mid Navy Club. Doubt
less beautiful women were enlisted to exert
their persuasive, seductive hillucnco upon
members of the Club to that end. imagine a
young woman of society pleading .earnestly
with an honorable member ot the Army and
and Navy Club for Uio restoration of linker,
the man convicted of having tried, like a
common villain,, to rob a young girl of her
vlrluol A lino spectacle (his for the llrllish
aristocracy to contemplate! It was necessary
to get fifty members to propose linker’s read
mission. Think pf fifty llrltlsli officers pro
posing Uio vdmtmtasloii to their intimate
companionship of a man justly convicted of
tho mealiest and most brutal offense lit tho
criminal code of any civilized countryl ilut
fifty such officers were found, ami. In a club
ballot on tho proposition. In a poll of fiW,
there wore only thirty-nine black balls or
negative voles.
Severn! deductions mny ho drawn from this
remarkable action ot the London Army amt
Xnvy Club, nil of which nre alike dishonor
able to It. Its members mny be generally so
stolid ns not to regard attempted ** rape ” ns
u crime In n gentleman; Or they mny con
sider It so lightly ns to bo willing to condone
it on account rtf the snhsd'ittcnt gallant mili
tary conduct of tho offender. Or their scru
ples, their bolter Judgment, and their sense
of honor may Imvo been overborne by the
Importunate demands of “society.” It Isa
fact worthy of notice that linker was re
ceived In “society” before ho was received
In tho' Club. .It follows, since “society” IS
controlled by women, that they first restored
to linker his forfeited title of “gentleman.”
lienee that tho “society” ladles of London
contributed Indirectly to the restoration of
linker to his old club relations is certain, nml
the presumption Is very strong that they ex
erted a direct, ami powerful inlinence to that
ohil. They Imvo done for linker socially
what the Queen Ims so fur refused to do for
him in a .military point of view; they have
clothed him anew In his society uniform ami
restored him to his old rank.
•Mr. Siimlteyputs thofollowing pointed sup
posititious ease: “One rather wonders wlmt
verdict this conclave would have given Imd
Baker actually accomplished his purpose.
Nothing but tho extraordinary courage and
resolution of Miss Dickinson hindered him
from accomplishing It, so that as far as in
tent and moral guilt goes It may bo Inferred
that tho rape of a young and Innocent
■and absolutely Irreproachable girl would
not, in tho opinion of tho Army and Navy
Club, alTcct tho character as a gentleman of
any ono of Its members,”
Tho history of the linker case shows that
tho lone of “society” In England Is very
low. (t shows that even tho Influence of the
Queen is powerless to save society from tiio
Bolf-ln(llctcd shamo of taking to Us bosom a
lecherous, brutal scoundrel. It exhibits Ku
glish polite “society” in tho defiant atti
tude of declaring against the expressed wish
of tho Queen Its purpose to protect from
moral punishment tho man who sought by
brutu force to rob one of her Majesty's sub
jects, a young, Innocent, and Irreproachable
girl, of her chastity. Than this nothing
could bo more Infamous. Jt Is equivalent to
the otter of a premium on.vice, and tends to
confirm tho evil reports of correspondents In
regard to tho low moral tone which prevails
In all tho higher circles of British upper
crust “ society.”
AUXILIARY WATER-WORKS.
- Tin: Timui.vii has been grossly and delib
erately misrepresented In regard to tho pro
posed Increase In the .water-supply by two or
'three malicious city journals, which are con
stantly seeking to attract public attention by
'soiicltmgaeontroversy.wUh.lt,’ They sup
press tho plan which 'Tun Tnmuxi: suggest
ed last Sunday, and then proceed to credit to
Tin: TninuNnsuggesLionsuud motives widen
it has not entertained. One of them, after
referring (o n company which had been
started to secure from the city the necessary,
authority lo build 1 auxiliary water-works,
adds that tlio editor of Tin: Tninu.vi: “ cmno
. out with a’ leader apparently in. favor of
auuthcrsehcmo In the Interest of tho city, but
which in reality Is the old one with a varia
tion, and 'that variation not Mm Important
one.”
Now mark thcUinevencol
Tho schcmo proposed by a number of gen
tlemen was to procure from the city the right
to construct and operate now water-works.
Thu scheme proposed by Tin: Tumu.vK Is
that the city .shall construct amt operate
auxiliary water-works upon money advanced
by private parties, In the only way which
seems possible as the lawatand.4.
In tho ono case a company of< capitalists
\youid acquire certain rights which might,
In tho future, enable them to exercise more
or less control over tho supply of water; in
tho oilier ease tho'city would retain wlmt It
has now, entire control of the water-supply,
and the capitalists advancing the money to
erect the works would have no more power
or direction In the management of the water
system than owners of city bonds now have
over the administration of municipal alTidrs,
People who pretend that there Is no differ*
onco between theso two propositions are
eitherdishonest or Intolerably stupid.
■ The need for more water and higher pres
sure Is'admitted. Thu question is, how the
additional facilities are to ho obtained.
Auxiliary works, to bo ureeled on tiro lake-,
shore to pump water for hydraulic'purposes
within the business district,' will furnish ns
lief by'ponulttfng the existing works Itr tho
North and West Divisions''to he used for do
mestic purposes in tho residence districts; at
thoflamo Hum the auxiliary works provide
the Increased pressure which is required for
tho high buildings and mechanical opera
tions, such us utemn-boilerH. flow are these
auxiliary works to ho procured ?
. Tho city has not the money on hand to
build, it has not the power to Issue bunds
for raising tho money, because the municipal
debt now exceeds tho limit lixod by tho Con
stitution. The ordinary current expend
itures of the city equal the lawful limit of a
per cent taxation on the assessed value of
the taxable property, and hence the city can
not undertake tho construction of mtdltlomrl
water-works out of the current revenues;
and, If it could do ho, It Is doubtful whether
tho people would submit willingly totho
necessary Increase of taxes, lb Is conceded
that ihoro are Berlops objections to giving
- private capital tho authority to erect ami op
erate water-works. What, then, remains to
bo done *,*
Tub TmiiuNK has proposed that capitalists
advance the funds to enable tho city lo eon
struct tho necessary works, amt accept ns a
consideration therefor a rental equivalent to
Interest on the same amount of bunds. Tho
plan contemplates that the city authorities
Shall have control tho construction ami
operation of tho now water-works, Just us
they have of tho existing wuler-works; that
the city shall pay a rental to be determined
t>y a certain rate of Interest on tho amount
Invested during a term of, say. 100 years (or
Jess); that, at tho end of that term, tho city
tdndl hueoiuu the owner ’: nf tho works upon
Uto payment of an .appraised valuation of
wlmishall bpJeft of Uto original “plant”
Such n plan would accomplish precisely
what Uui city would do If It hud authority lo
Issue bonds, with tho UllTonmco that, in enso
of bonds, the city would nltlmutely have to
pay the entlro amount of money borrowed,
while In tho plan proposed Uiu cily would
pay In Uie und the umuniit invested In the
works less the waste, ami wear mid tear, aud.

loss nf machinery originally purchased. The
ralos to b» (’harped for tho water-service
would be fixed so us i» rover the rental or
tntvre.st on (ho Investments, and provide for
snob roimlrs mid extensions us would ho
needed.
It will not do to say that this Isasnhemo
to place tho control of tho public waler
worka In (ho hands of.private purlieu. It
could not possibly qvenUmlo In any such
w«y. • We vriiluro tho assertion that very few
of tho gontlomen who desire to procure from
the city tho iiutliority to construct water
works on lliclr o.wn account would advance
money under, the plan Tin: Tnmu.Ni: pro
poses, lint wo believe, other capitalists—
people with are Investing thetr money In long
loans at a low Interest—will he glad to do so.
just ns they would buy Chlongp city bonds If
tho hitter could he lawfully.put upon tho
market for a similar purpose. If thoro Is
any Irani or business objection to tho.schrme,
TimTnmu.vr: Will print It. Jflhorolsuny
belter mtggesdlmi for obtaining Increased
water facilities, Tin-: Tnmu.Ni: will print and
advocate It. lint It is not fair (o dismiss this
plan with tho remark that It Is materially
tho sumo ns a plan of.private ownership. It
Is essentially tho same ns public ownership,
and tjioreln lie* Its tjilef advantage, In enao

manner proposed.
THE SPECULATIVE MANIA.
The Xew York Tr/htmc of a,recent date
contains a significant article upon Ihudcvol
opmcnLof Uic wild ragufor desperalu specu
lation,—slgnllUmut hccauso U Is thu well
known story which will soon have Its well
known moral, though no one will heed it.
An old broker of Hroad street, In conversation
with a representative of tho Tribune, Is tho
authority for its statements. In the Gluck
Exchange thoro tiro 1,100 brokers on tho list
wlio lire entitled to scats, but the number ot
employes and partners of those having scats
nmunnts’to a small army, and besides these
immtuerahlo clerks and runners. Huskies
the Stock Exchange there are now two min
ing exchanges. ‘’All those buildings round
boro,”said;the broker, “are-tilled with fol
lows trying to make a living out of tho
brokerage on mining stocks. It Is amazing
how they, manage to eke outa living or to
pay their rent even.’' Tho increase In tho
magnitude of transactions has been corre
spondingly immense. Said tho Hrond street
broker:

trol or lines of ndlway many hundreds of miles

loans than tho Hoverument at tlrst feared to ap

‘ are. Thu individual speculators who used to
eomo down Into tho street fora •* llyer," say oneu

or sell thousands of shares, where oneu tliuy
dealt in a few hundred. Onco, too. It was thole
custom to dual exclusively in a favorlt stock,

now they study tho stato of thu general market
and deal in several loading stocks nt the simiu
time, "bulling” or "bearing" oil ns tho statuoC
tho market lulluoaeud them.
Tho classes who cngageln speculation havu
also greatly changed (luring tho last few
years. Formerly dealing In margins was
looked upon as dlsveputablo, mid It was left
to those who cared nothing fortho cpilhotof
“gamblers.” ,Now inurclmnts and manufact
urers engaged In legitimate business nro nl
most dally engaged In taking a “Hy” at
stocks mid risking their legitimate earnings
in all sorts of rash ventures. Lawyers have
caught tlie disease and transferred It to their
clients, tho former by thulr knowledge of
motions affecting stocks, though few of them
are successful., Congressmen, and (legisla
tors, mid Government olllciulsnalonlyspecu*
hue, ' but speculate heavily., ‘‘lt was
not always so,” says tho relator, “but
Ideas us to tho propriety of.ofllchvls In pos

When a member of Congress or the Legisla
