W hen speaking of some lovely scene among the g roves, or along the flowery shores of these favored islands, he says, “one eould live tliere forever.’ Cuba broke upon him like an elysium ‘It is the most beautiful island,” he says, “ that eyes ever beheld, full of excellent po. and profound rivers.\ The clim ate was more tem p erate here than in the other islands, the nights being neither hot nor cold, while the birds aud crickets sang all night long.

From the grass growing to the very edge of the w ater he inferred the peacefulness of the ocean which bathes these island.s. never lashing the shores w ith angry surges.

TAMMANY’S CONSPIRACY Harper’s 'Weekly Supports the Republican Ticket. The Tiger Must Ke Fought by All Hon­ est Men—Fassett an Idea! Leader, and a Candidate That All Good Citizens Should Vote For. George W illiam Curtis, editor of Har­ per’s Weekly, ha.s the following leader in this week’s issue: Unless all questions of s ta te govermuent are to be wholly subordinated to national policy, the pending issue iu New Y^ork is well summtirized by Mr. Fassett as th a t Df good government against Tammany country.” A t the late Democratic convention it overthrew till opposition within the party, and the .success of the Sartitoga ticket would secure its suprem­ acy iu tlie state. Iu this situation Mr. Fassett stands for the intelligent opposi­ tion of New Y’ork to Ttiminauy Hall, and the protest of the County Democracy speaks for the Democratic pert of that op- “The Democratic party of today in this state, like the Democratic party of tho.se dark years prior to 1871, is absolutely dom­ inated and controlled by a combination between Tammany Hall and a canal ring. W h at consequences befell the p:irty be­ fore as the result of such a comuination we are none of us old enough to forget, and we warn all the honest, sober minded Democrats of the state to remember those consequences, and when the proper time arrives to unite with us in the effort to wrest, the control of the party machinery from those who in the end can bring to it only disgrace a nd defe;it.” A prominent Democrat, the late fusion candidate for d istrict attorney, also says: “The election of Flower would be the death of the County Democracy. It would make Tammany trium p h a n t throughout the state, aud would give thtit organiza tion a voice iu the national alRiirs of 1893. The interest of self preservation demaud.s th a t the Counties should work for the de­ feat of Roswell P. BTower, who was placed in nomination w ithout a voice from this Democratic association.” 'That is undoubtedly the opinion of a very large body of strictly Democratic voters. The County Democracy may think that party “consistency” and ptirty “loy­ alty” require a public expre.ssion of ad­ hesion to the. “ regular” nominations. But the voters wlio compose tlie County Dem­ ocracy will hardly vote to destroy their organization by wholly s u bordinating the party to Tammany Hall. It would be stultiflcation for any Democrat who thiiiLs th a t the control of the party luachinerj- should be wrested from those who can bring only disgrace and defeat upon tlie party to vote tor th a t disgrace tind defeat and for a return of “ the diirk years.” Tlie opposition to the 'Tammany ticket, therefore, will be very much stronger than the united Republican vote, for it will in­ clude .a very Ijirge and influential Demo­ cratic vote and a gretit m u ltitude of inde­ pendent voters, who will gladly unite iu the opposition to Tammany Htill. We speak of tlie united Ilepnhlican vote, be­ cause opposition to the leadership of Mr. P l a tt will not p revent the clo.se.st union of Republicans against the supremacy of Tammany. It is long since tlie Republi­ can party wtis less distracted by factional feuds. Mr. Wliite, who represents its gen­ eral intelligence tind c haracter rather than any personal faction, and tlie representa­ tive friends of Mr. W arner Miller are all co-operating sincerely witli the especial friends of Mr. Platt, while Mr. Fassett has opened the cainpaign amid an enthusiasm wliich usually marks the close of a presi­ dential canvass. 'This is partly due to the fact th a t the Republicans feel th a t in him they have found the leader who has been long w ant­ ing to the party, tind it is largely due, also, to the fact th a t the Republican platform, amid the general baits of all party pl.at- forms to catch votes, declares strongly and unequivocally for the great measures of state policy which all good citizens ap­ prove, and which 'Tammany Hall instinc­ tively opposes. It cannot be seriously sup­ posed that the hope of completing ballot reform, and of honest government in gen­ eral, lies in the supremacy of Ttimmany Hall sustained by the vast aud c o rrupting Ijiquor interest of tlie state. I t is not surprising th a t the campaign should have opened with enthusiasm, and th a t “ P lattism ” as au issue sliould have disappeared, a lthough it threatened to be­ come au issue until the action of the Demo­ cratic convention and its consequences were fully apprehended. Sucli an issue as the practical control of the state by Tam­ many H all takes precedence of every other at the election. It appeals to everybody wlio has the public welfare at heart, tind it is a simple and intelligible issue. We have not failed to express onr opinion of “Plattism ,” but still less Itave we failed to declare, in the words of an eminent Democrat and a distinguished public spirited citizen, that Tammany H all is a conspiracy a g ainst honest government. The incisive and unsparing revelations of the Tainintiuy power and metliods made two or three years ago in The Evening Post are not forgotten. T h at power is unchanged, and its managers are the same. T h a t the scheme of holding the W orld’s fair in New York was a shrewd plot for the benefit of 'Taramany is now a very general belief, and it is no discredit to ilr. P l a tt that he saw it when others did n ot see it, and stoutly resisted it. The fight against Tammany m u st be carried on under the ncce.ssary conditions of a party contest. Tliose who would make it effective m u st vote with the Republican party for Mr. Fassett, and the candidate and the party m u st prosecute the cam­ paign as a party and a party candidate. Tliey will, however, if they are wise, re­ strict the discussion as much as possible to tlie s tate issues. B u t they c annot risk the effect upon their own voters of throw­ ing over a ll allusion to the general party policy. It is fortunate th a t the combined foes of Tammany have in Mr. Fassett a candidate whom in this conte.st they can cordially support. In personal character and address, intellectual and political ability, educated intelligence and famil­ iarity with state affairs, he is what the gov­ ernor of New York ought to be. Platform s are often omnium gatherums of professions to catch votes. B u t the professions prove the existence of the pub­ lic sentiment to which they appeal, and the probable sincerity and future action of the professors m u st be determined by experience and observation, and he would be a person of extraordinary faith who should anticipate honest aud effective leg­ islation for business municipal adm i'” “- tration from the leadership of Tamm; Hall.—H arper’s Weekly find.). !V e w $ p a p c r s E n d o r s e . ‘•Educators a re certainly tlie greate.sl lipiicfactors of the race, and after read­ ing Dr. Franklin Miles’ p opular works, cannot help declaring him to be among the most entertaining and educating authors.”—N ew York D aily.

Many of tliose who heard the story refused to believe th a t Mr. Oelrichs would desert his party, particularly wiien an issue of importance stared it in the face. B u t it is just this same issue, apparently, th a t caused him to take sucli action. Mr.Oelrichs believes in a Democracy witli all tliat the name implies—a liroad and liberal interpretation of the word and not the narrower construction, sucli as ap­ plied a t the convention held at Saratoga at which only one wing of the Democracy ame in for recognitioi N kw Y ohk , Oct. 5, 18!)1.

She proclaims a “tax re­ duction” and shouts over the *1.90 tax rate on a valuation of *1,785,857,338, of which only *77,988,510 is exempt from state taxation, and therefore taxable at the lower rate of *1,680. This “ reduction” of 3.5 per cent, in the tax rate was manipu­ lated, as has beeu stated, liy increasing the total valuation from *1,090,978.390to*l,785.- 857,338, an increa.se of 5.3 per cunt. This is the system iuaugurated during the Tweed regime. It was found to be an easy and commendable way of squeezing tlie taxpayer. In 1869 tlie tax rate was *3.27, and tlie assessed value of the tax­ able property iu New York *965.326,614. The next year, when the Tweed robbery was approaching its climax, the tax rate was lowered to *2.25, tind the following year to *3.17. But the property valuation was marked up *110,937,019 over 1869.
