It Is to be assumed that the Brooklyn City Railroad Company has bought the rights of the company which was formed to build a railroad from the Thirty-ninth street Ferry along Second avenue to Fifty-second and Fifty-third streets and thence to New Utrecht and return, for the purpose of building the road, and not merely to hold the franchise and thus prevent any competition . with its Third avenue extension to Fort Hamilton. In that view the news furnished in Thb" Citizen yesterday will be welcomed by all residents and intending residents of the region to be traversed, by property owners and real estate investors, and, in fact, by the people of the city generally. It will aid materially in the development of all that part of Brooklyn, and very soon after the completion of the rb-id we may look to see the farm lands contiguous to the line reduced to city lots, and streets graded and paved, to be followed by rows of houses supplied with water and the other conveniences of municipal life. What the company's ultimate plana in connection with this purchase may be, it is too early to say, as the officers decline to make them known at present; but if it is reaching out after a Coney Island ter minus, or even only s Bath Beach one, it is easy to see bow it can accomplish that purpose by this new route' and thus rise from the position of a horse-car lino to be a rival of the steam surface roads that rush passengers through between the Island and the citjj with all the style "of the Pennsylvania or the New York Centrat -r-Of course, a slower rate of speed must always be maintained within the populous limits of the city's street lines, but outside of those the road could take on the character of those already in operation, and that too. without changing its motive TVitzi or within the limits. But inasmuch as the company openly entertains the idea of changing that motive poer on all of its city routes, and is confessedly seeking popular and official consents thereto, it may be presumed that its purpose is to use the tame continuously on the main route and every branch thereof from terminus to termimi, and if it be its intention to acquire a through route with this new one to the seashore at any point, it would probably desire to apply the one method of locomotion to all And this, in a point that should secure the intelligent consideration of every resident of Brooklyn and of the municipal authorities ; for the public is and must be, in the interests of the city, opposed to the further introduction here of 'the overhead electric wire system of railroad car propulsion, and the people of the towns should take warning from the experience of Jamaica and utterly refuse any franchise that would permit the use of the tarns. It ia claimed by the company that Under tha franchise covering this new 111 ip 'linpnnlli II II n ll llinF Hj :; I route, it la authorized to use either cable or electricity. But that does not mean any form of I electricity that it may choosa for itself. It means that form of eleotricity, which can be shown to be acceptable to the peo ple who grant the franchise : and the I authorities have it in their power to refuse consent to the operation of the road by any other. That they will do so when the time for action arrives the public may be assured, and the railroad companies generally may as well make up their minds that the overhead system will not be admitted to Brooklyn now or in the future. THE WATER SUPPLY There was good ground for the communication from Commissioner Adam' to the Mayor concerning the necessity for prompt action on the recommendation to lay the proposed new4tj-inch main with proper branches from tne rudgewooa Reservoir to the western portion of the city.' This has been shown to be absolutely necessary - from the increased call on ' the present mams to relieve the water famine in that portion above the first story of most of the buildings in it, and it is bard to understand how the Aldermen could fail to see the importance of immediate action to authorize it. The expense is chargeable to a fund specially set apart for such purposes, and it is only necessary to issue the water bonds m the amount required, and as it ' will take a long time to complete the work; it should be entered . upon at once. If the Mayor signs the call for a special meeting as suggested, and the re port and resolution of the Committee on Water and Drainage submitted July 14 is adopted, the City Works Departnfent will be able to take advantage of the present season to- push the work. There ought to be no further delay'in the matter. THE FLYING TEUTONIC. Last Thursday afternoon the Teutonic, of the White Star line, and the City of New York, of the line, left Queens- town together, and whatever their com manders may say to the contrary, it is pretty certain that each determined to be the first in New York. Both vessels beat their previous records, and the Teutonic, i Mirtnii minutes ahead of the other ship, iJso smashed the best record held up to this time by the City of Paris. The log of the Teutonic shows that ahe covered 2,806 miles in five days, nineteen hours and five minutes, while the City of New York by a shorter route made 2,701 knots in five days, twenty-two hours and seven minutes. If, therefore, the Teutonic had followed the same course her superiority as a fast ship would have been more pronounced. It is the belief of the Inman captain that the Teutonic's success was not due to the fact that she is the faster ship, but because she had a better drilled crew of stokers than his own vessel Such a record as this would have been thought impossible twenty years ago. The shortening of transatlantic time has been going steadily on and we. therefore feel justified in the belief that before another twenty years have passed, passengers will be ferried between New York and Queens-town in five days. The fear that this ocean racing may one day -read to a great disaster is not well founded. Wrecks, fires and ex plosions are of rare occurrence now compared with the days of slower steamships. THE Q. A. R. AND PENSIONS. Was it not the famous Flannagan, of Texas, who, in the Chicago Convention that nominated Garfield, electrified the meeting and put to flight the goody-goody delegate who wanted to ignore public offices as a power in politics, by shouting: " If it ain't for the' offices, what are we here for ? ". There are unpoetic, practical men who,, in the light of the past and the noon day glare of the present, are coming to believe that these annual conventions of the G, A. R. are designed to direct and advance pension legislation. Fifteen years and more ago the Grand Army was wholly a fraternal organization, and incidentally. a charitable one. Its ruling spirits took a chivalric pride in their own efforts for the preservation of the Union, and they lost no sleep planning raids on the Treasury. Of course the social fea'. ores of these reunions are not lost sight of now, though one would be justified in thinking so from the time given to the discussion of pensions. In his address before the national encampment General Alger said : , The subject of pensions hasn9en. as all are aware, the ail-absorbing one of the year. Din-fog the erly days of the present Conerev it became evident to tlio Pension Comrnlttaa, whose report ia before you. that the "berries bill."1 so much desired, could not be euaeied into a law, many members of both branches of Congress deUarla that they could DOtrotj for an amount that, taken wuh the regular expenditures of the Gorerninent. would exceed its revenues. I am awara that mm, hi.. appointed, but th- committee has been powerless to I aAroouiplislNnore tuan hat already been dona. It is now .beliert-d that the expenditure In penRlona, under existing laws, will exceed 1150,000,000 annually. Mi re than S0O.0OO applications hare been made to the Commissioner of Pensions under the new die-ability law, and be Informs me that application! are coming in at the rate of about ten thousan 1 per day. Let us be Just to our lawmakera, even though they hare not given us all we aske-1. No country on earth Is or erer hda been nearly as generous to its soldiery as ours. Trie National Association of ex-Union Prisoners of War took advantage of the great gathering of veterans at Boston to hold a meeting on their own account. The. survivors of Libby, Belle Isle, Saulsbury, Florence and Andersonville, did not waste time in matters reminiscent, but as soon as they were called to order they began a fierce attack on Speaker Reed and Senator Hawley for obstructing their particular pension bill. President Williams, of the association, said he was sure their Pension bill was delayed because it was believed that in a f"w years there would b" no ex-prisoner left to draw it, and he might have added,' but he did not, that if these pensions go on increasing there will money in the Treasury to draw from, unless we resume some of the waf tases" essential from 1801 to 1S55. The ex-Union prisoner, were ticTatorial instead of supplicatory, and they boldly announced their purpose "US relegate to political obscurity for all time. Senator Hawley who had shown himself to be a very impecunious (?) statesman in his speeches condemning this measure." At the banquet called "a campfire" in Boston last night. General Butler and Major McKinley had a lively tilt over this same pension question. Cunning demagogue that he is, General Butler strongly auvocateu letting down the bars and inviting all the old soldiers up to the public crib. The gist of Butler's argument was that s man could not plunder his own property nor steal from himself, and he wotttfd up by declaring that toe old soldiers owned the United States Treasury, Well, it certainly does look that way. , We are told that "Malor MoKinley took; up the gauntlet that Butler had shied into the arena." His address was able, but as it was conservative on the pension ques tion, it was coldly received and fell on un- - sympathetic ears. Daniel icJt(es, weu provided for himself by still drawing a major general's pay" in the regular army, is not opposed to being still further provided for in a political way. if we may judge from his declaration that "no man who opposed the Pension, bill had been elected to any office after he did it." And yet "the Grand "Army is in no sense a political organization 1" The ensainpment at Boston was a grand success. Outside of the all-absorbing pension question, the matter oft greatest importance disposed of was the election of Colonel Veazey, of Vermont, to suooeed General Alger as oonimander-in-chief of the order. The next annual encampment will be held in General Alger's home, Detroit, just one year from the usual time for nominating Presidential candidates. THE SUPERVISORS. The proceedings of the Board of Supervisors yesterday were more entertaining for the audience in, the lobby than interesting to the public, The request for a new bell for the county jail to cost not mors than $45 was acceded to. Whether this is the dinner bell or the tintinabulum, to which Macbeth, when he ,wore the "hangman's look," referred as he appealed to his victim: "Hear ri not, Duncan, for it is the knell, that summons thee to Heaven or to i ' i " the opposite direction, it should be of interest to the inmates to know that the bell will cost enough to make its Btiiu mons understandable. It also appeared that the cost of strait- jackets is about $90, an unfortunate and careless bidder who put the price at $9 by mistake, being relieved at his own request from the consequences of his bid. There many people who do not know what a strait-jacket is, though they have an idea that it is Bormrtliing' to keep lunatics and obstreperous prisoners from doing themselves or others an injury, being in that respect very like the ancient suit of mail which made the ordinary man as helpless as if he were in the stocks; and they are about right, but it will be news to most people that the man who gets the strait-jacket in the County Jail has a waistcoat that costs more than any other suit of clothes he ever had on before. "Bosh" and "Buncombe," unless the opinion of the Supervisors themselves was wrong, characterized the rest of the meeting, and the result was that action on the bids for the St. Johnland improvements was deferred till the next meeting. What the Supervisors do not know now about the work they promise to know then, and it is hoped that they may. "EX-PRESIDENT CELMAN. A dispatch to the London Times from Buenos Ayres says that the financial statement issued by the new government will show thtit the enormous sum of $ 500,000,000 in currency passed through Column's hands while he was President of the Argentine Confederacy, and that the country derived little or no benefit from it. The country is discontented and the people writhe under this mountain of debt, which in the main represents the most colossal robbery of modern times, and they seem to be only a little less opposed to President Pellegrini' than they were to his predecessor. As was before intmated in Tub Citizen, the end has not yet come, "the volcano of public dissatis faction is only slumbering." The ancient Province of Cordoba ia in a state of incipient revolt. The Governor has called out the militia under the pretense of drilling them, and Pellegrini, seeing the danger, has sent a commission to change the Governor of Cordoba from his purpose. To the rumors of a secessionist movement in Cordoba is due to th fact that gold, which fell on the resignation of Celman to 125, has gone up again to 151. The Union Civica, or citizen's movement, that forced Celman to resign, also declared their want of confidence in Pelligrini. Nor wilTthey be satisfied until the present President is relegated to the position of his predecessor, England holds the key to the situation. Her citizens have more than a thousand million of dollars invested in the Argen tine Republic, and this vast interest must influence directly the action of the British Government. If the English can maintain Pellegrini tnr position, they will exercise in Buenos Ayres the power that, (jhrough Lord Donoughmore's bondholders' contract, makes them to-day the masters' of Peru. English influence is coming to the front, but it is very doubtful if it can control the people or appease the righteous wrath of those who feel that they have been cruelly deceived and plundered, not by Celman only, but by Pellegrini and the whole corrupt government REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES CONGRESS. FOR As The Citizen announced on July 29th, Colonel John V. Jones, of the Nineteenth Ward, has started out to secure the nomination for Congress in the Third District by circulating petitions, to be signed by his personal friends, asking biin to run, and the fact evidently agitates some of our Republican contemporaries which profess to have just discovered it. The way in which Colonel Jones is proceeding to put Mm self before the people at the polls ia the way provided by section S of the new Ballot law; as Thk Citizen pointed out at the time, and there is no reason whatever why Mr. Jones or Mr. Benedict, r.any other man should not 'avail himself oftit if he have aspirations of the sort. The nomination acquired in that way will be just as good a nomination ss that secured by success at the Eepublican pri-mary, and in view of what occurred at the Republican primary in the Twentieth Ward last year, we maybe sure that it will cost much less. All that Mr. Jones or any other man who thmks be would not have a fair chance in the primary needs to do is to obtain the signatures . of not less than - cue hundred voters of the district (if he be running for Congress), asking him to be a candidate; and the man who cannot get one' hundred reputable voters of his district to say that tbey want him to be s candidate, ought not to be one. If be get but that many he is nominated for the office just as regularly as if nominated by the party convention, and perhaps he hag just as good a chance of election. In addition to that, it is provided that a nomination made in this way shall entail none of the outlay for various shady purposes usually concealed from publio scrutiny under the head of "campaign expenses;" for the certificate of nomination is to be filed just the same as that of the convention candidate, and the name of the nominee addea to the list" without expense to him. This should be a very comforting assurance to those ambitious and able but poor men of the Republican party in, the Third District, who have scaroely dared to enter the field heretofore because of the influence of money used ana threatened to be used in the interests of wealthy men Who have sought the nom ination. . In view of it, it is quite possible that one or two other candidates will yet seek the nomination in the way Mr. Jones is now seeking it, with perhaps a tacit under stand that the one who obtains the greatest number of signers to his petition shall have the field left to himself and perhaps the candidate who se cures tne convention nomination. It is a. new way to test a man's popularity and is likely to be tried for its novelty. Of course, it opens a fresh chance to those so inclined to put themselves In the field for pur poses of barter only, being ready to withdraw in the interests of any Candidate who will pay them to do so; but we are talking of Republi can politicians bow, and have no desire to hurt the feelings of our Republican con temporaries by suggesting that any of thein would be so naughty as even to tnink of doing that. NO WORLD'S FAIR IN SIGHT YET. Every day adds proof to the statement that Chicago is no fit place in whioh to hold a World's Fair, The people there have not" the qualities or conditions demanded for the success of such an enter prise. They cannot raise the funds necessary for itj they cannot even agree oh the Bite. They are squabbling still over the question as to which end of the prairie they shall put it on. It was thought they had been able to agree on the, lake front; then that they could avoid a disagreement by dividing up the Fair between that and Jackson Park; and now it is announced that they cannot probably have either, because, in the first place, 'the 112 acres of flooring they would have to lay in Jackson Park would need to be laid over a swamp: and in the second place, the directors find that the Illinois Central Railroad Company will not pay for the making of fresh ground on the lake front in case the suit pending as to its title to the ground it holds there should be decided in its favor. It seems likely that this sort of disputa tion about the site will be kept up until the winter sets in and one of those "blizzards" we hear about but never witness here, descends upon them and knocks all the argument out of both sides. It is often called the "Windy City;" but the verba contest there has been all summer over this proposed Fair Bite, leaves us in doubt as to whether it gets that name from the air storms of the Northwest that sweep over it or from thS "wind" ' of its orators. In either case the title is prob ably well based. But apart from all that, it is impossible to see how the World s Fair is to be held in that place, even if they spread it all over Chicago, st any time during the present century, because foreign exhibitors will not send exhibits to be transhipped .twice on the journey, and except in the finest weather, foreign visitors, and for tha( matter, Eastern visitors, will not take that thousand-mile journey to Chicago and back in any great numbers, unless perhaps Chicago will provide them with a free pass on the roads and board and lodg ings while they stay there. Almost all the. foreign visitors who would come here during a Chicago Fair would want to Spend the most of their time around New York, and, regretful thought I perhaps the most of their monef, too. It is just as well for Chicago to think of these things in time, and if it must have Fair let it be a neighborhood one, a big agricultural, mining and mechanical ex hibit, a State Fair in which other States wouid be inclined to take part, and give up the idea of a World's Fair, it being ap parent now that In that undertaking she has "bitten oil more thanhe can chew." A Kansas City painter s wife eloped to St. Louis with a former lover. The painter found them there, and, after a reconcilia tion with his wife, was met on the street by the former lover, who took his wife away again with the aid of a revolver. -t-ana tne guilty pair again .uea. -situs a I case in which Chicago need not beXyisited to obtain a divorce. Senator Teller's Supplemental Silver bill is likely to meet with the opposition of those who are not in favor of the free coin age of silver, and it seems unlikely that there will be any further silver legislation at this session of Congress. How they propose to manage "matters out West we do not know here, but if silver dollars should be as generally circulated as some think they will be, poor men will need leather pockets and rich men a wheel-bar row to carry their cnange, with a man t wheekit, How little need there was for the Force bill to ensure the political rights of Republicans in the South is abundantly shown by the fact that ex-Governor James L. Aiicorn, 01 Mississippi, a nupuoncan, was elected a delegate to the Constitutional Convention now meeting in Jackson, that State, by the unanimous vote of the Dem ocrats and Republicans of Coahotno County. The Press, of N ew York, says this morn ing in its Washington correspondence: A aurndent number of Bf-nato cannot be in duced to support an amea.utjat 10 Sue rulea to cnoke off tue Democratic obstrucU'inltta and dis pone or tha Federal Elections bill la tuna to utilize It In the battle tor tne nej.t House.

This is for ths purpose, of retaining her vigor, rsuswingr her strength and prolonging Ufa. Tha whisky which she drinks ia obtained from the distillery on her own Balmoral state, and, of oourse, is perfectly pnre.

These facta prove two things i First, that all modern medical Science demonstrates the superior value of whisky for sustaining ths health and prolonging the life; and second, that it must be abso-' lutely pur! Ths leading American physicians and chemists have indorsed these views con- stsntly aud emphasized the necessity of having whisky that is absolutely pure. Ths best medical and ehemioal talent in America has shown oonolusiveiy that no whisky known in the market is so pure as Dnffy's Malt. It is wholly free from f nail oil, it is unlike all other so-oalled whiskies and it it doing great things for ths health of the community. So true is this, that while msnr temnamnoe naonle denounce whiskies and liquors in general, they acknowledge ths superior merit of Unity's Malt, and nse it medicinally continually. Great ears should be exercised, however, to secure no other, no matter how hard a dealer may seek to sell you something else. DANOED ATOONET ISLAND.
