The prico of nominations for Justice, of tho District Court is 63,000, tho lowest of the judicial assessments. Mostt of these Justices ore not what would bo tormed \shinine lights\ of tho legal profession. Dut thoir ' ealary is $8,000, $3,000 moro than that of a United States Circuit Judge, and nearly as $ much ns that of a Justico of tho United States \ Supremo Court. Comparatively speaking, $5,000 would be E&t 'lair remuneration for tho grado of men on our E-- r district Court benches: Charitably supposing ftr they do not pay thoir debts with judicial fa. vpra , tho margin of $3,000 on their first yoar's Bolary moets tho machine assessmeut for ki nomination.

Inspired by Sham's example in staying the K'' band of justice, De Leon, the sotorious trafflelter in yonng girls, is also seeking a now trial. Kfjl The argument of his counsel is simply n : 'tirade ngainst-Tni- : Woiild for exposing his jJ. Infamous business and furnishing tho Court With conclusive evidence for his conviction.

Senator Fbve'h remedy for tho surplus is to raise tho war tariff higher, so ns to give pro. tecled monopolies a fuller control of tho homo market by shutting out imports, and then to spend in wllil-cn- t appropriations whatovor excess shall remain. This is truly a heroic remedy. Tito pro. posnl to rcdnco the rnrenue by making the taxes so high that nobody can pay them, and to \ put $10,000,000 n yenr into tho subsidiza- tion of American steamers and ships,\ and to \ put MW.OOO men at work on tho Nicara- gua Canal,\ must causo in tho average tax. payer n strong hankering to call tho Ilepubll-ca- n party back to power.

WHO KEEPS BHAHP PROM BINO BIHO 7 A Boodlors' organ charges that It is Assist- ant District-Attorne- y Nicoll who is \ stav- ing off tho enforcomont of tho sentence pro- nounced against Jacoii Sharp.\ The basis of this colossal lie is tho post- ponement of n fow days asked for to enable Ooustock to prepare to arguo tho caso beforo the Court of Appeals. But who got tho stay from Judge Forim ? Who delayed the caso beforo tho General Term? Who, by \ways that oro dark and tricks that aro vain,\ obtained another stay from Judgo Huoeb ? Who threatens that tho caso shall bo carried to tho United States Supremo Court to keep tho veteran briber from Sing Sing ? Jacob Sharp's money, Jacob Snxnp's po. litical \ pull,\ Jacob Sharp's subsidized newspapers havo thus delayed Justico, against the strenuous and splendid efforts of tho man who securod his conviction. And tho pooplo know it. A PECULIAR ATTITaDE. Mr. Coubtlandt Palmes says ho is opposed to Anarchism, but sympathizes with tho con- demned Anarchists. His attitude is somewhat similar to that of the Maino deacon, who \ stood for Prohibi- tion but ng'ln its enforcement.\ Anarchism minus tho Anarchists would bo quite an innocuous affair. HAUD8 ON, A Washington despatch to tho evening organ cays that \ the polioy of the Administration seems to be ' hands off ' in tho extraordinary contest that is now going on in Maryland.\ Thoro oro times when an Administration should keep its hands off of political conten- tions and times when it should lay a firm hand upon them. In Maryland conspicuous Federal officials aro ougaged in an open effort to sustain a gang of ballot-bo- x stuffors aud spoilsmon in control of tho party manage- ment and tho local government. In doing thistheso officials aro violating tho Presi- dent's order and scandalizing tho publio sor. vice. The Administration should lay the hand of discipline on its contumacious servants. TROUBLE 0HTHE\L'B.'' Delays on tho Elevatod roads owing to of various sorts are getting to bo un- comfortably common. What is tho matter ? Is tho rolling stook wearing out?

The directors who havo grown rich fiom ttihse franchises must spare no pains or ex- pense in keeping the Hues safe and rolinblo. Any serious loss of human lifo, due to their parsimony or hoodlessnobg, would make Now York a hot place for thorn. Speaking of reforms, why doesn't some benevolent society set about teaching tho children of Italy tho diflorcnco betwoon fall nnd winter apples?

The latest method of firing an exponsivo nine-inc- h Dahlgrcn gun, as exemplified at Nowport, is to firo it, carriage and all, out of the portholo into tho sea. These tactics would bo very offectivo if the enemy wero accommodating enough to bo within rango. Tho Chleago Board of Trodo is not to havo the business of gambling in food products all to itself.

The fact that tho President left on Friday led many superstitious peoplo to predict that ho would havrt had luck beforo his return, but their predictions have not been realized. Tho rain at Atlanta was about tho only un- pleasant Incident of tho President's trip. Thoro will bn no demonstration on tho of tho President's party hero.

At Calera, a junction point in Alabama, where tho Presi- dential train stopped to chango engines, threo or four thousand porsons wore assem- bled, nnd among them five hundred workmen from Birmingham who had coiuo on a special train with cars gaily decorated. Threo cheers were given for Mrs. Grovrr Cleveland ond tho President.

The greatest newspaper In America, the New York World, has taken what was well nigh Impossible another step In advance. The first number of Its eveiilug-edltlo- n was printed Mondsy, and appears to be a most crcdltablo child from a glorious parent. The new evening paper merits Jhe approval of everybody. Its edition tho first evening comprised over 111,000 copies. ITftHporHtf. r.) Carina ChilS.I The New York World evidently wants the earth and the fatness thereof. Not content with the great success that has crowned his efforts In push. Ing his morning edition to the very front rank of cosmopolitan newspapers, Its untiring proprietor this week brought out the Evinino World. It was a success from tho first. I'cdple olamored for It, Jostled each other for It, fought for It, till its first edition reached tho unprecedented number of 111,400 copies, It Is neatly gotten np, is chock-fu- ll of news, with a sprinkling of spier editorials, by able Journalists, and Is sold at tho ridiculously low figure of ono cent per copy, or ta.M per year. One reason, wo 'lmaglno, why the World enjoys such a boom and why the publio greet Its every Issue, la Its fearless Independence, never hesitating to at- tack and expose Iniquity, be It however strongly intrenched. New York city and tho whole State owes a debt of gratltnde to this great newspaper for Its exposure of publio wrongs, Its denunciation of and Its defense of the rights of the people. Long may It remain to carry forward Its good work. BILL NYE'S USEFUL SUGGESTIONS. He Answers n, Few More Inquiries by Kvenln World\ Headers.

It Is mr0 surprising, therefore, but it is nono the less true, that Miss Julia Marlowe, who appeared for tho first timo yesterday in \ Ingomar \ at ' a matinc'o nt tho Bijou Opera-Hous- e, scored an undoubted success. In fact, so charming was tho personality of this young girl, and so naively pretty wos hor interpretation of Porthcnlo's role that the audienoe remained seated until tho end of the haokneyed play. Miss Mar- lowe, who cannot bo more than nineteen years old, is a dainty little woman, with large, lustrous eyes, a shapely head and a bright, intelligent, though not strictly pretty faoo. It seemed impossible to imagine that Bho was a novice. Her acting was finished, her gestures absolutely without awkward. ness and her voico clear and true. Mlsi Marlowe had everything against hor, but the principal disadvantage against whioh she struggled was a ghastly, a com- pany. With tho exception of Frank Evans, as Ingomar, Miss Marlowe's company wag absolutely worthless. Mr. Leslie Allen gave a ridiculous impersonation of Myron, and looked moro than grotesquo in his soiled tights and absurd tunic, while Miss Waldron, as Thcano, was equally laughable. But Mis Marlowe achieved a wonderful success, not nt all marred by her unworthy support. \ Rcneo \ was tho name of Clinton Stuart's adaptation of D'Ennery's \Mnrtyre pro. duced at the Gmnd Opera-Hous- e last night with Miss Clara Morris in tho title role. The big theatre was crowded and the audience wept itself rod-nose- d at Renee de Moray's martyrdom. Miss Morris had scope for all her peculiarities and she availed herself of It. Strango intonations, hysterical laughter, and bursts of tears wero never more realistically given nor more enthusiastically received. Mr. Stuart's adaptation is not a good one. He has to learn that \Mon dieul\ one of tho most common exclamations used by the French, does not mean \My God I\ in Eng- lish. It has absolutely no moro depth in \it than our \My goodness 1\ or \Good heavens!\ Thero aro other Bimilar errors of translation. Miss Morris's support was passable. Mrs. Octavia Allen was excellent as Mme. do la Marche, but Miss Lilla Vane gs Ccoilo was too guttural and Mr. Graham as the Count do Moray too wooden. at the matinee and evening performances, Miss Morris will appear In \ Alixe,\ an adaptation of \ La Comtesse dofSomerive.\ When \ Held by the Enemy \ has been Sroduced at the Peoplo's Theatre next Mon. will enjoy the distinction of hav- ing been given at three New York City thea- tres by three distinct companies within threo months.
