At the first operation which was per

and an operation which was partially

Attention is directed to tho careful
summary, printed elsewhere, of the
disclosures of the Ltxow senetorial
committee winch has been Investigat
ing police methods in tha municipal
guv.'iuiaentof Now York city. Spurred
to this inquiry by the fearless denun
ciations of Dr. Parkhurst, the commit
tee has gone in mnny Instances to
thv very bottom of the methods where
by ort;a:it .1 political dishorn sty,
thru:!-, systematized blackmail, has
bom enabled to perpetuate Itself in tho
metropolis using as its tools the pro
prietors of illicit planes and the whole
army of tiieir defendants aud etip
sbdtnrleS which, when added to the
Democratic party's normal strength,
suffice to Oft ITy the municlpsl election.
Tho fact that at a Conservative esti
mate f'J.000,000 is annually wrested
from the keepers of these dens and
turued over into the packets of Tam
many and its officials is a stinging ar
raignment of the easy ludlffereneo (.f
the better class of American eitisene,
who permit , irtisao prejudices to sep
arata them into antagonistic municipal
fictions while the ringatsrs who foster
these prejudices obucklingly ttop in
Hnd feather their own uoats unobecked
and unquestioned. If this present cru
sade against official dereliction ia New
Yoik shall huvo no other tfiyct tbilU lo
hasten the day when tho business in-
teies s of local government shall re
ceive honest and. efficient business at
tention, it will have accomplished a
memorabls purpose nnd fuliy have jus
tified all its expense.
The evil outlined in these disclosures
is not confined to Gotham. It is being
rapidly duplicated in tn my smaller cit
los. The luct that we have to a largo
extent eiosped it in Surauton is due,
no doubt, as much to our municipal
youtbfulness a3 to any general superi
ority among our citizens to those traits
iu hum;in nature which elsewhere make
citizens indifferent so loug as their pri
vate business Interests return a satis
factory profit. The only safe escapo
from these evil lies iu the stimulation
of a vigilant and an earnest sentiment
in behalf of law observance and law
enforcement, in all directions and
among all clans -a.
EVBS THOUGH Mr. Dony should be
arrested for tho lodging of inaoourate
information, theoanse of whici: ho has,
wisely or unwisely, beeu the exponent
will remain intact. The desirability of
nn orderly and law-abiding commun
ity ia a subj-ot wnoliy independent of
Mr. Dony. While certain fairly enaoted
laws are deliberately nnd systematic
ally violated, not, as it appears, out of
fancied necessity, but from sheer ob
stinacy aud contrariness, it would not
do for the cause of law observance to
rest its esse upon any single Individ
nal's merit or faults. The threatened
arrest of Mr. D my may bo merely a
rusu to divert attention lrom the real
issues. Dut whatever may he it3 moti v-,
it is largely immaterial so long as law
is ).uistcntly violated and duty per
The genuiueusss of our American
d( mocraoy, despite the rapid mnltiplt
eutioo of artificial social distinctions,
is woll illustrated Iu an incident that
occurred recently iu Montrose. Oa
Sunday last there was buriad in that
borough Thomas Smith, a vetertu of
tbo riug and also of the camp. Iu his
eatly manhood he bad bean ouo ot the
moat celebrated of circus clowns; and
had brought inno;;ent merriment and
glee to thoniands of ebiluren, now be
come staid men uud matrons, in all
parts of the land. When the war time 1

and sl:nnldured a loyal oltllsn's mus
ket, fighting bravely iu the ranka
along side learned professional men and
bumnle artisans. Through this bond
of fellowship, forged amid deprivation
and danger, no less than be.ouo of bu
own intrinsic worth as a plain and un
assuming citizen, it emu about that at
his bier, as pall bearers, there walked

ronlity of the claim that in America,

whatever may be their occupations or

seems lo u i, cannot be emphasized too
strongly. At a time when IgnOranoa

"AU this Is doue in fhe uaino of la
bor, and labor is irreparably injure
by every such alUci on civillzjd gov
ernment. The orderly and legitimate
efforts of worbingmsn to alvsnce their
wagss sightly command public sympa
thy. But whtn ttiesi iffortj take tbe
form of anarchy and attack everv pro
tection to individual and public rights
they declare war on society and con
vert tho sympathy into unqualified
eondemuatiou. Titers are hundred o.
thousands of workiugmsn who are
loyal to law and order and understand
tho necessity of constitutional govern
ment Wo do not believe that th m l
j.rityof workingmsn of the United
statis will even sympathies with tbo
assault on civiliz'd lew When they un
derstand what It moms. But so long
es it is perpetrated in the name of la
bor, and remains disavowed and uu
punisbed, tho responsibility and dis
grace rest on labor as a body. It Is
high time for tho la! or organiz itions
declare themselves oa this point They
should let the punlie know whother
they mean to accept the responsibility
of an attack ou republican aud consti
tutional government or whether they
will not only disavowaud denounce but
aid in the suppression aud puuishmout
of these criminal acts."
"For the authorities ovrysvhsra
there is the need of comprehending tho
gravity of theso acts, aud of rosorting
to adequate meusures for the onforo
mont of order. The timo for tempor
izing with mobs that attac.t tua law
with the same virulence as they beat
and abuse Individual Is ptst. Pro
clamations commanding mobs to dis
perse are useless unless means ate
taken to make rioters respect the law,
Trying to maintain tha law by scat
tered forces of deputies Is only inviting
further defiance. A force inuat bo put
into the field that will overawe the
rioters, suppress tbe anarchv and re
store peace to tho land. The aliens
who have been crowding into the
United States during past years in
search of labor need to be instructed
that this country is ruled by civilized
law. It must b administered promptly
aud sharply if the nation is to ue re
deemed from the diigraoe of being
ruled by the tyranny Of ignorant and
criminal mobs." Otherwise, where
will it ail end?
