Tub exact merits of the political situa tion in New York City no one can tell, for those who know have all taken sides in the bitter triangular fight that is now going on there. Bat to nn outsider it looks as if Mayor Hewitt deserved a re election, Tiie thieves that are running Tammany Hall deserve no consideration and get none from the g*s»d people of this country. The Republican position is a natural one, of course, but if it should result iu a Tammany mayor for New York city, it would prove a very costly and reprehensible position, Hewitt is a crank, but one that has turned out pretty decent municipal gov ernment.

W« have carefully watched the newspapers for over a week now to see what they wonld say about Mr. Bayard's Opera House speech. To he sure the Asso ciated Press did not give any pub licity to it.

Close readers of the news will remem ber that Mr. Blaiue. when at Goal ten, Indiana, last week, said in a speech t liât Mr. Havemeyer, the President of the Sugar trust, had appeared before tiie Committee of Ways and Means when the Tariff bill waa pending, and, according to Senator Allison, secured a rearrangement of the sugar schedule, which put $(5,000, 000 into me pocket of tiie trust. Mr. Roger (j. Mills of Texas, chairman of the Committee of Ways and Means, de »led this iu a card publishec in the Ledger yesterday, and Mr. Blaine iterated his statement iu substance in a speech also publish;» 1 in yesterday's Led ger. These affirmations and' denial would leave the matter u sort of square stand-off between Mr. Blaiue ami Mr. Mills, But, fortunately, the chief point in dispute is a matter of official record, »0 that all of us may judge between the two disputants. It was the subject of animated and at times sharp debate in the House of Representatives on the July last, in the course of which it was admitted by 1 " ...» 9th of Mr. Breckenridge of Arkansas that he invited Mr. Have and other ami Means to meet himself the Ways meyer members of -Committee in the to talk over matters relating to the sugar subject, and that the conference took place. Mr. Breckinridge, of Ken tucky. admitted that lie saw Mr. Parsons •(attorney for the trust) iu tiie Ways and Means room, and was introduced to Mr. As an ex committee room. Havemeyer on that occasion, planatory and illustrative appendix to the statements of Mr. Miiis and Mr. Blame wepuhlisu the whole of that very suggestive debate in the House.

Philadelphia North American. Mr. Blaine's latest point against Mr. Mills is not likely to bo answered as quickly by the free-trader as his former allegation. When Mr. Blaine said that President Havemeyer, of the Sugar Trust, had appeared before the Ways and Means Committee when the Mills bill was up and had secured an arrange ment. by which six millions went into the pockets of that trust, Mr. Mills without hesitation denied that Mr. Havemeyer had ever been before the committee or that he had been invited. So confidently and so promptly did he make the denial that it seemed to dispose of Mr. Blaine's argument, and the Demo cratic organs rejoiced loudly. Now, since Mr. Blaiue has hacked his statement by menus of the Congressional Record, Mr. Mills has a beautiful opportunity to crawl into a hole and pull the hole in after him. lie is convicted by the testimony of Ids own colleagues, and the natural inference is that Mr. Mills did nut know what he was talking about or uttered a deliberate falsehood. It ischaritable to believe that he was mistaken, ami it is to be hoped that he will investigate the nest state ment he intends to deny. The Stuff ut Newark. Elkton (Md.) Appeal. Tin« friends of temperance in tho neighborhood of Glasgow arc rejoicing in their successful efforts in again defeating the licensing of a groggejy at that place. Some months ago, a Mr. Dayett, the son in law of the former proprietor, made ap plication for a license, but tho judge denied the application. Recently Mr.Gmb erie himself repeated tiie effort. The temperance people were on hand with proof that ho had formerly sold whisky to minors ami had failed to provide en tertainment for travelers. The chief justice promptly denied the application. T1 h> friends of tiie cause of sobriety are to lie congratulated on their success; and if they could next year do the same good work with regard to the places that arc selling the stuff In Newark, they would receive the thanks of the people of this p art of Cecil. It is an outrage that Mrs. James G. Blaine, Jr., should be agaUt called upon to deny a false report that she has «oper ated from her husband. The publication of such n rumor has not even the poor excuse that it relates remotely to acini didate for public office. Young Mr. Blaine is in no sense a public man, and Mr. Blaiue the elder Is not known before the public except as a speaker.

It ex ceods the total of appropriations for the fiscal year 1887-88 by between $511,000, 000 and $57,000,000. Tue revenue of the government for the present fiscal year was estimated at $333, 000,000 from customs and internal taxes, and $57.000,000 from the post office; in all $440.(500,000.

In the judgement of some of tho informed people at the Treasury the ordinary revenue will not ho more than $370,000,000, instead of $383,000.000.

It would require a loss of not only $8,370,000 iu revenue during the nine months to come, iu addition to this loss of $4,(530,000 in the first three months of the year, to bring down the receipts for 1888-89 to $370,000,000 instead of $383. 000,000; and then, supposing that the postal receipts have not been overesti mated, the total revenue for 1888-89 would lie only $427,500.000.

To the Editor of Evkmn'u Journal, We are not surprised at a "Northern ers" view of the political situation iu Kent county, or of his quick, almost in stantaneous conversion to Wolcottism after a short conversation with half a dozen of tiie leading politicians. We have no doubt he is of tiie material as some other Northern men who seek after a few years residence here to lead us in our pol itics, and would public opinion, for in stance Jacob G. Brown. This class of men come here with very elevated opin ions of themselves and correspondingly low opinions of Delaware's ignorance, and of lier Democracy and her institu tions. He iu short is a self appointed missionary from the region of the "Molly Maguires," or the Pot houses of of Philadelphia or New York or some other equally respectable region. Natur ally he does not like the Sunlsburys or their Bourbon Democracy, because he cannot comprehend Democracy iu its purity. The Wolcott kind suits him better. The unprejudiced view of the situation as it falls from the lips of "Uncle Joe" en ables him to decide the momentous ques tion of the fight between the factions and inspires him to write a letter to in struct tiie people. A few minutes conver sation with Mr. Wolcott convinces him that he is honest, decent, a man of abil ity and a Democrat, although there are lots of people who have been yinrs unable to discover any evidence of las exalted ability, not because Mr. Wolcott has not had the opportunity to display it, for the pulpit and the bar are the fields w liefe ability can be beat shown, if tills seeker after knowldge had been sincere in trying to arrive at the truth from facts, and if he had really desired to know and to publish the truth for the guidance of your readers, to become in reality a "lamp to their feet," lie would have discovered that in 1870 this same element of the party attempted to defeat the Democratic party because a Sauls bury led it. He would have learned that this is tiie second attempt to deprive the Saulsburys of leadership by a resort to the unit rule by the same element. He would have found that this faction connived with Beniah Watson to get tiie control of the Republican (.'on vention and himself nominated for Con gress, pledging him their support as against i'euington—this in graditude Watson for services in their conspiracy against C. H. B. Day and others. He would also have learned that Dr. Wilkin son, levy court commissioner of North Marderkill hundred on their ticket, has been canvassing the negro vote of West Dover in the interest of tins faction. Watson is In the ring—the county build ing ring—and deeply ami damagingly in their confidence. With such facts star ing us iu tiie face, regarding the so-called Democratic ticket, is there any wonder if Mr. Jones and every other honest Demo crat shall decide to vote the Republican county ticket ?

After the western Roman empire fell, the eastern or Byzantine empire continued to exist for about 1,000 years in a state of almost continuous decay, uud Constan tinople was finally taken by the Turks in 1493. They soon subjugated Greece and ruled it tyrannically for 800 years; then the G reclus rose in rebellion, under Marco Bozr.aris, Ypsilanti, Mavrocordato and other leaders. Their uprising was at first suppressed, with awful massacres; but Western Europe took an interest In tho classic land and many Philhelloaes ("Lovers of Greece") volunteered to as sist, among whom was Lord Byron.
