Aflua! Word About the City Printing.
Every Evening thinks we failed to give a
reason the other day for our opinion that
itajelaima to a part of the city printing are
" plausible rather than just," to use lta
version of our remark. We certainly
thought we gave a reason, theugh we did
not do so very extendedly, simply because
we, had in mind the same resolve which our
respected cou temporary es presse* when It
says that it does not mean to take a hand in
the fight for spoils that seems brewing
among Wilmington newspapers.
The Gazette has never sought the city
printing since Council has been Republican,
and the resolutipc with reference to the city
ordinances was passed without the slightest
iustlgation or suggestion on its part, or on
the part of any one connected with it. At
the same time we cannot but approve the
plan embodied in this resolution as a sensi
ble and business-like method for securing
the widest publicity of the ordinances and
also as a matter of justice to a large number
of our citizens who under the recent rule of
advertising only in Republican papers were
compelled to go outside of their regular
family journal in order to learn anything of
the provisions of such new ordinances as
might be passed from time to time.
If you ask any man of ordinary intelli
gence who knows anything of the matter,
how to best reach the most people of a com
munity through any two of Its newspapers,
nine chances to one he will tell you to select
one paper of each political party. This Is
the idea we had in view as the reason for our
opinion that Every Evening '* claims were
" more plausible than just" when we said
" one paper of each political party reaches
11 all the {»copie of any community much
" more thoroughly than it can be done in
" any other way."
Rut after all, the question is one concern
ing which we do not Intend to be disturbed,
let Council do what it may in the piatter.
We merely express our opinion that, as the
matter now stands, Council has made a wise
and equitable disposition of the city print
ing, but we hope, if the question is again
opened, that not one of its members will
allow this approval of their action to weigh
a single iota in our favor. The reeeptaclc
for stolen goods, at Third and King streets,
seems to think that it would have a bearing
upon the question, but we take pleasure in
saytug that we have a better opinion oi
Council than that, though a majority of Its
members are Republicans and consequently
our political foes, but, we hope, not our
personal enemies.

Tils desperation of the Daily Disgrace
over it» failure to secure all of the city
printing i6 doubtless augmented by the re
membrance of its failure to bribe a former
Clerk of Council, when the Democrats were
in control of that body, by offering him ten
per cent, of its bills for printing. If it
shall have the temerity to attempt a like dis
graceful transaction with the present Clerk
we have no doubt it will be spurned with
the same contempt that it met at the hands
of Clerk Frazer.

The news thief's idea of cultivating
business relations with advertisers is to
praite those who patronize its columns and
curse those who don't; hence, its inference
that the Gazette was moved to make a just
temark concerning a recent action of Coun
cil because it had received a few orders for
l \ty printing was a perfectly natural one
it to draw.

emphatically charge the Republican, a

by George W. Vernon A Sons, and edited
by Solomon Hersey, with having deliber
ately and wilfully stolen valuable news
property rightfully belonging to other*—and
appropriated It to Ita own use In open and
flagrant defiance of every principle of
decency and honor, and In direct contraven

If there Is any plainer form by which a
charge of moral theft can be more clearly and
explicitly stated we shall be glad to hear ot It.
We don't want to be misunderstood. We
say that the Republican Is an habitual thief
In the strongest meaning that the moral law
can give that term and we are prepared to
prove tho charge by evidence of the most In
