A great fight Is being made to overturn
the decision ot the ccmmlsfcion which, sc

Previous to this formal protest there had
been much criticism by the artslts here ot

were represented by publie expression from

APFEALED TO CONGRESS. .
The society met yesterday afternoon and
passed a resolution appealing to Congress
'to save the American public from this
unfair favoritism." Those present at the
meeting were, Presideaff Dunbar. Kobcrc

or resolutions to be presented. Mr. Dunbar
went over these this morning, and wilt

THE BARTLETT DESIGN.
Mr. Dunbar said this morning that the
Jlartlett design esiiecially deserved com
mendation, from an artist's standpoint.
He considered either of the others, how
ever, superior to that selected. He pointed
out that anyone can make such figures
and medallions as adorn the pedestal pre
sented by Mr. RohI-SmIth,and claimed that
tbey are Teallstic rather than artistic.
He arged that tlie true artist does not
strive to reach the public by mere realism,
but by allegorical designs. This was true
ofeverygrent work of artin Europe. Inthe
Bartlett design there were the allegorical
figures of Courage and Thought, represent
ing Gen. Bhernian'scblctqualitlcs ofgreat
nesa. Mr. Rnbl-Smitb had attempted to repre
sent these by what Mr. Dunbar considers
absurd figures or soldiers and sailors on
separate pedestals, and a trivial bronic
plate in relief let into tbeslde of the pedes
tal, representing the hero standing over
the camp fire thinking over the next day's
Again. Mr. Dunbar said it liad been
claimed thatthc portrait face of the statue
ought to be decisive. This was not true.
The face would be Tar above the
observer and its features could cot
be seen clearly. The likeness, of
' course, ought to be good, but was not so
important as the general apjicarance of
the work and its fitness to symbolize the
characterof the man honored.
Mr. Dunbar is heartily in favor of the
movement to establish an art commission
for the choice or such works for the gov
ernment, and said the people of European
countries never think, of deciding such
matters for themselves.

"His one ambition is to represent the

has been injected into Delaware politics,
which ts fnr-rcachltig In its effects, and
destined to work a complete change in the
affairs of the State, and will play a most
important part In the elections next fall.
"One year ago, acting uion the suggestion
of Jackson H Ralston of thiscity, the single
tax advocates throughout the country de
termined to make a winning fight to estab
lish their doctrine in the state.
"There were many reasons why the
followers of Henry George chose Delaware
as the State In which to give the object
lesson on the practical workings ot their
theory. In the first place tie State is
small and easily handled, the total voting
population not being in excess of 37,000.
"Again, no change la the constitution
ot the State would be, required to pass a
law embodjinga tax upon land values ex
clusive of all improvements for Slate,
county aud municipal purposes. This was
a most important point in their favor, a sin
most ot the States constitutional provisions
would prohibit the enactment of such legis

could be passed by the legislature, a body

strength ot the old parties, were most
favorable for the opening of an aggressive

was fired about the middle of June last
ear, when one Saturday nlj.ht a party of
single tnxers, principally from the rhila

ciUes throughout the State, and on street
corners and in public places began talking
to the people. At that time a canvass of
the entire State showed eleven active
known single tax adocates residing within
Its borders. Comparatively little atten

was said that they would go away In
the fall with the other summer novelties.
they had come to stay.
"Headquarters were established in Wil
mington, and every day In the year the
principles of the single tax have been
heard on every' hand. A dozen or more
men have been in the field at all times,
have lived there, worked and talked
among the people, and been supported by
free .contributions from sympathizers
throughout the country.
"The progress made in the campaign has
enlivened the Interest In other places, and
the result will be awaited with interest.
Henry George, Rr. Edward McGlynn, tbe

mass meetings have been held throughout
the slates with unbounded success. In
Wilmington, especially, under tbe leader
ship of A'-H. Stevenson, George F. Stevens,
and Messrs. Tuttlc Hetzel and others, the
enthusiasm has been almost unparalleled.
As new converts have rapidly joined thelr
ranks, leaders of butb the old parties have

every possible means to thwart their prog

imprloined, being even throWD into Jail
without the privilege of a Jury trial, and
freedom of speech has been denied them.

"Out of every ten sloglc-taxers seven are

three former Republicans. In thla contin
