The course of the Pali Mall Qaatitt in publishing to the world tremendous and apparently a growing evil cannot be too strongly commended. It is the only way to put a atop to the villainy, and had it been adopted a long time since a good many pure girls and women would have iieen spared the humiliation and disgrace hey cow suffer. It is apparently a pop- tlar idea among the higher classes of ISnglHtmen that not only the labor but 1 ae pu rity of England was created for their sole 'wneflt, and this idea has been worked too successfully by individuals who Lave, to the disgrace of the nation been 'tnowa as "first gentlemen" through A lon line of -inherited official honor. is the newspaper that must bring about the meaiis to the needed reformation, and that is false modesty which is indifferent to the fact but shrinks with horror from '.he i.

In 'he ta: trie of litigation springing .ram .the failure of Grant & Ward and' the 1 ariae bank there is a suit brought by G orge C. Holt, as assignee for Fer Jinan 1 Ward, to set aside the conveyan ces o prjp -ty by Ward to Warner and Work fliose who have tried to follow the i' trten'i- ramifications of Ward's deal ings ( dl remember that when the crash cami nn 1 he had squeezed General Grant as dry its a smoked herring, Ward ab ruptly transferred his igdividtiul estate to Mesiis. Warner aod Work iu satisfac tion ut tueir claim to profits ou fictitious contracts. Not content with swallowing the Capital of the firm and of the Marine bank. Ward's meterolc financiering cut minated in inducing General Grant to borrow a large sum from Mr. Vanderbilt to tide over the crisis, although Ward well knew at the time that neither $150, 000 nor ten times that sum could avert the ruin he had devised. Having conveyed his own share of the spoils to the safe keeping of Messrs. Warner and Work, Mr. Ward affected contrition and chose an assignee to act in behalf of the lawful creditors. Ward's checks, put iu evidence yesterday, show that from February. 1883, to May. 1884, he paid to Mr. Warner more than $6, 250,000 in transactions which were actu ally nothing more than a swapping of checks with the profit always accruing to Warner. The latter s secretary was exs amined yesterday, but he threw very lit tle light on the true inwardness of the transactions. What was the exact understanding be tween Ward, Warner and WorkT How much, if any of the squandered millions is held in trust for Ward by his accom modatiog friends to be given to him when released? If these questions can be cor rectly answered, perhaps a considerable part of the lost money may be recovered It would likewise be interesting to know where the money comes from which sup ports Ward so luxuriously in Ludlow street jail. PUBLIC ABUIII ARB TEX PRESS The apparent indifference of the public to laxity of official authority, and even to gross abuses, has but one rational expla nation . It is not patience, for at irreg war intervals every citizen cries out against them. But the citizen feels that of himself he is helpless, and that if he should make a personal complaint to the authorities he would be laughed at as a crank. He must have facts at bis back in order to secure reform. He must have public sentiment at his back also. How shall he secure this fact and this public sentiment? It costs money to get inves tigation. It takes time and labor to get at the root of an abuse and fix the rev sponslbility therefor. The citizen sets out with a paper for complaint, stating what he knows to be facts, and asks Big natures to it; but this is a business world and the occupied man has no time for others than himself. Shall the authori ties exert themselves? They do. They are doing it every day. But they have their routine of business, and it takes all their time to transact that. Is there special abuse of large or small propor tions? Who knows but it is one which it is to their best personal and political interests to ignore? Here comes in the press. As a matter of choice and duty and money it seeks for these abuses with the end in view of de Itroying them. It expects to make rep utation by doing so and its reputation its capital but what of that? It is matter of business With the press, as it is a matter of business with the merchant to suit his customers, but what of that? is a man's business to make good machin ery, or good coats, or good boots, but what of that? The end in view is legitimate; but there may easily be, in addition to that, as pure motives as ever the priest has in denouncing evils from his pulpit and indeed he can be put up on the same level. It is the press that must bunt down the evil doers who are beyond the pale of ordinary police regula tions for both their trivial and their great misdemeanor. The press speaks for the indignant citizen who cannot act alone It has the money to pay for investigation, It has the power to create the public sens timent which is most needed. good many indignant citizens London have doubtless known for a Ion: time of the atrocities which the Pall Mall QamtU has tracked to their origin, but they have felt that they were powerless. Beginning with the "first gentleman who lives by virtue of his seedy wits. That there should be a regular traffic in human bodies and souls is not at all as toalshing. It is natural following of the idea that hereditary title and idleness are honorable and hereditary labor Is degrade ing. The astonishing thing connected with the Oatette publication is, not that it has been made, but that it was not made long ago. The gratifying thing is that the ordinary people have acquired even though it be a result of avarice, for the press is never to be judged with entire justice an- organ which they have long needed, and which if they bad had would have saved many a naturally good girl and woman from a life of debauchery and wretchedness. There have been too many frail trirls in Eneland. There have been so many mistresses that the number of the honest wives has not been suffi ciently large. The example furnished by the betrayed has been followed in too many cases by women whose better birth should have taught them better; and the scandals of high life might, if they were printed, furnish as mekneholy a specta cle as that of the low life which is exhib ited by the Pall Mall Uautte. It is not a yearning for obscenity that makes this honest, courageous paper sell. It is a desire to get at the truth aud to secure the reform which the pub lication of the truth makes necessary It is very strange indeed that the higher classes, which are indignant at the piibli cation, should be silent year in and year out with respect to the actual depravity. Let them reform themselves, and they will find thut the press will reform ac cording to their loftiest idea of purity of very necessity. SUPERVISORS' PROCEEDINGS SrisciAi. July Teh. A. D. 1S85.

What Bonner Expect of Hand M NlW YORK, July 15. In reference to certain recent statements about Maud 8., Mr. Bonner says the mare was slightly lame when he received her from Mr. Van derbilt, but he doss not blame Mr. Vander bilt, who was very courteous and generous all through the transaction. Ha thinks the mare was lame for some years before that time, but Mr. Vandervilt did not give so much personal attention to her as ha (Bonner) does, and probably did not know that she was lams. Under a system of shoeing employed by Mr. Bonner the lame ness entirely disappeared, and he believes she can trot in 3:05 or 2:06, and could have dons it years ago if properly shod. Alleged Chlltl-Mealer Arrested. Chicago, July 16. It is behaved that the abduction of Liilis Shaffer, the IB-month old baby, has been found.

NEW YORK FINANCIERS GIVEN TO UNDERSTAND That They Mast Change Their Habits or Ban a Silver Ers Favoring Boun ties to American Ships Commer- -elal and Industrial News, Naw York, July IS. Doited States Treasurer JordanJnformed the New York Clearing House association Monday that un der the present condition of affairs the coun try was steadily and rapidly drirtlng towara a silver basK and that process could only be checked by a change in the gold policy ot the banks. The treasurer and Comptroller Canon spent two or three hours at the clear, hut house with its members, by formal in vitation. The treasurer explained that the gold surplus in the. treasury was getting lower, and unless receipts ol gold were in creased the surplus would soon be wiped out of use altogether. This would necessitate the use of silver in paying government obliga tions, and that would lead to practically a silver basis. It was admitted by the bankers present that such a change would be undesirable. It suggested that it toe government ran short of gold the banks would be willing to advance say 110,000,000 or t30.0O0.0O0. Treasurer Jordan assured the bankers that the government would not accept such loans. Here was plenty of money in the treasury to pay all the gov ernment's obligation'. The only question was whether or not some of those obliga tions should be paid in silver. If the brok ers adopted a policy requiring the co operation of the treasury be bad no doubt that the administration would be found willing to do anything lawful and proper to aid in keeping the nuance ot the country on a solid gold basis. He had no other suggestions to make. After the meeting one of the bankers, when asked what they were going to do. said: '"It has been practically agreed upon by the clearing house association that here after we shall be more liberal in disbursing gold, and such a policy may hold the silver question in abeyance until congress can dis pose of it." Vanderbilt and the Pennsylvania. New York, July 15. The Times' Phila delphia special says: "Several gentlemen here, who are prominent in connection with financial and railroad interests, state that the negotiations between the Pennsylvania company and the Vanderbilt interests have practically reached a termination satis factory to both parties. It is asserted that the matter has been left to two gentlemen for conclusion, Mr. Cassatt being accepted by the P enusylvania com paiiy. It is also stated that the terms do not Involve a sale by Mr. Van derbilt of his Reading stock, but soft-coal tonnage over the Reading will be arrnuged so that the Beech Creek (Vanderbilt) coals will not so strongly come into competi tion with the Clearfield coals of the Penn sylvania company. The capitalists here interested in the south Pennsylvania line state they are assured by capitalists in Pittsburg and New York Interested in the scheme that if Vanderbilt surrenders his interest in it, they will complete it without him. Hallway Items. Chicago, July 15 George W. Stevens, superintendent of the eastern division of the Wabash, and A. A. Talmnge, general man ager, held a conference with Mr. Davis, rep jntative of the bondholders of the Cb cago, Cincinnati & Louisville railway, north era division of tbe Indianapolis, Peru & Chicago, at l'eru. on Friday, at which it was decided to maintain the present running arrangement with tbe W abash road, aod allow the latter to continue the operation of the line.

TC Signal Service 4lticr Who Olijerlec tu Color Vilas Gets a Going Over Senator Harrison's Views on tine or Two rolnts. New York, July 15. Mr. F J. Wheeler, one of the editors of The Voice, the leading Prohibition organ, was asked regarding the present outlook for his party in Ohio and in this slate. Ho said: "We haven't been able to find a man going back on our party, but, on tlie contrary, many are coming in from among both the Republicans and Demo crats. Tbe ouMook with us is better than ever before. Tbe prospects in Ohio are that we shall get a rattling good vote thei e, and there are members ot the party who hope and expect to have our candidate for gov ercior elected. Others put the vote we will revei ve at from 50,000 to 100,009. ou see, in Ohio there was a vote casX of 323,000 for tbe prohibitory amendment in 18SS. Thi year tbe fact that the Republicans have come out for the taxation of tbe liquor traffic will throw a largo part of this o'J?,00,l over to our party. What is the outlook in this stater "First-rate. We polled 5,(W0 votes for St John, and if we get 50,000 votes in Ohio we hope to get 100,000 here, for the election in Ohio, coming in October, has a great effect here always. Yes, we shall nominate a full state ticket Our convention is to be bdld in Syracuse on Sept 8 and 9, and there is decidedly more interest taken in it this year than ever before. We are better organized also all through the state." Gorman Wants to Know. New Yonic, July 15. Senator Gorman, of Maryland, is at the Fifth Avenue hotel. He was interviewed by a Tribune reporter. "lour friend Higgms is still prominent ventured tbe scribe. "Tell me," returned the senator, "why do great papers like ox INew xork pitcu so mucn into ilig gins, who is a mere clerk; why, be u not the responsible man at alb Ho has nc such power as he is described to possess. 1 saw recently an editorial on Higgins and the Keller matter, stating a large number of details of that affair, not one of which was true. I can't understand how such statements come to be made editorially. It may lie, of course, as to tbe general attack, that Higgins is taken up as a type and held up to view because of that; but it does in justice to the man." "n bat of the administration "The president is going cautiously. It is possible that changes in tbe public service might bo a little more rapid, but the offices are not the goverment We shall get through discussing ofllces pretty soon and go at some thing more solid and substan tial" Another Trctty Item .Spoiled. Washington Citt, July 15. The Post, referring to the publication to the effect that tbe president had called a halt in the dis missals of government employes for alleged "offensive partisanship" says: "There is ab solutely no foundatiou for tbe report" and that tbe message which tbe president is said to have Sint within the past few days to all heads of departments reasserting his views on civil-sorvice reform as enunciated in his Christmas letter to Mr. Curtis, and in his inaugural address, and disapproving of the "offonsive partisan) hip" rule as recently ap plied, has no existence, and never had. In conclusion the article makis the following emphatic statement: "Tbe causes for which changes are made in the various depart ments and bureaus are the same now as they have been all along, and no new instruc tions on tbe subject havo been issued by tbe president" Views of Senator Harrison. Chicaoo, July 15 Senator Ben Har rison, of Indiana, was in tbe city Monday. In speaking of Indiana politics, Senator Harrison said the Democrats there seemed to be about as well satisfied with Cleveland's administration as they were anywhere. He did not believe that the United States sen ate would be captious in confirming the ap pointments of tbe president, but he did believe that exceptions would be taken in cases where Republicans had been dis charged without cause, but simply for the reason that they were offensive partisans. He complained that Indiana had been so re- districted by tbe last Democratic legis lature, that it would be op-lull work for the He. ublicans to gain a majority in the next general assembly. The Republicans, how ever; were not aiscouraged, and would wort with redoubled efforts in tbe next campaign. The Assistant Was Off-Color. Feksacola, Fia., July 15.

He I will leave in a few days, and the negro is to charge of the office at present The negro I is the first of his race appointed to the signal I service. Wrote Vilas a Tart Letter. Gatnesvtllr, Ga., July 15.

Mr. Vilas said it was tbe purpose of Mr. Cleveland to displace - Republican negroes by black Democrats, and asked Congressman Candler to suggest tbe name of a black Democrat for that place.
