From this day forth the Evening Journal will be a straightout Demo cratic newspaper, and will endeavor to «tipply a long-felt demand in a manner creditable to the Democratic party and with honor to itself. The Evening Journal will discuss all questions of public policy with fairness, equity, force *nd consideration, but always from a pa triotic stand-point. The Evening Journal proposes to support, lo its fullest capacity and abil ity, at all times and uuder all circum stances, the regularly-nominated candi dates for office of the Democratic party, believing that, even though time the best man for the office may not be the nominee, and remembering that an election to office is only for a specified period of time, the selection of a Democrat will be of public benefit ; and while civil service reform may be excel lent theory, party affiliations should not be ignored.

After weeks of vituperative directed harmlessly at the Journal the Sunday Star says: "The game is not worth the caudle." We in cepted this as the only apology tbat Jerome B Bell can make. He is not the sort of a person from whom to expect a manly or an honorable apology. It would be as well to expect generosity from hyena. Like the hyena, he driven away with arguments suitable to hyenic comprehension. For honest and honorable people made a truthful statement of our affairs in correction of street rumors, was sufficient lor all honest and honor able people. Jerome B. Bell, of the Star, and the Every Evening were not satisfied. They do not belong to that class. This applies to the Every Evening as a newpaper chiefly. The personnel of the does not indorse the conduct of the paper. But wo think that the meuts abuse Evening a must be we That concern senti of cm honest and honorable man should be In harmony with the editorial complexion of an honest and honorable newspaper.

Bell and the Every Evening require the «»me treatment. torial chair. The yellow dog treatment was what they wanted and generous and skillful physicians we gave them as muck yellow-dog as they seemed to require. Bell's case is somewhat aggravated because of bribery and a low moral tone—what the physicians term a general debility—so he needs severer treatment. We cured the Every Evening with the exception of astealthly tendency of snarling venom, which cau not be entirely eradicated, and which seems to belong to its nature. Now him to make actionable charge that wa could make him liable for in He declined. We made a •charge of bribery which an a court of law. against him, was actionable, and dared him to venture into court to sue us for libel. He whined out of that, offered to pul up a forfeit and leave the proof our charges in the bauds of mittee. He called that a bluff. What can be done with such an editor* Abso lutely nothing except what we have done, «how that he is dishonest, and dishonor able and financially irresponsible, «bowing that, we show that he is worthy of belief and this makes his malice against the Evening Juuknai and its We then a com In • . manager ineffectual, have not said the tenth part of what know of Bell. We have scarcely touch« d his private character because we have tiot wished to spoil our editorial pages more than was absolutely necessary. But wo have deemed it requisite to reply to the editor of the Star, though the Bell is by moral turpitude and personal character beneath notice. Is this not sufficient for Jerome B. Bell* We w e II.HI. Ed^, M. Meunb, who has been selected by President Carnot to form a new Ministry, will have as difficult a task as General a pro Harrison has had, but not- such longed one. Work on the Panama Canal has been suspended indefinitely. The laborers have been paid and discharged and Di - Lesseps, and his gigantic scheme to unite two oceans, seem about to undergo « simultaneous collapse. It is humorous to observe that those who are most anxious for a new constitu tion are the least willing to comply with the present constitution. Perhaps if they would try to think they would find that they did not know what they wanted. LeCaron, the London Times witness, military spy, Chicago charlatan and gen «rai gyascutis, has a wonderful memory And marvelous cheek. He is of very mufcular build, slightly above medium Lelgbth 'and b«ith gesture seemingly no e like a shre««l, Yarseeing Yankee thaa in tone and lishman. There Is nothing stolid about Major LeCaron, nor Is he con structed on a roast beef plan. When the New York Herald reporter called a sharp „..„j ,, , . . . u faced keen-eyed, black-haired man, who bowed with dignity, and said in a quick, nervous way: "I am LeCaron. Will you be seated?" He stood the cross examination of Sir Charles Bussell with out the least embarrassment and without impairing his story In the least. He stands next to "Jack the Ripper" in fame in England now. Tin? columns of the Evening Journal will at all times be open for the tion of abuses, and all proper communi cations from any person, accompanied by the author's name as a guarantee of good faith, will receive courteous consider ation from the Evening Journal. In the Times-Parnell trial in London on Saturday, George Lewis who has the reputation of being the sharpest lawyer in England allowed evidence unfavorable to the House Rulers to go nnimpeached. It is supposed that he has something in reserve. The only evidence of the gem - ineness of the alleged Parnell letters is expert testimony. Expert testimony on handwriting is notoriously unreliable. Sir Charles Russel will begin his speech in defence to-day. correc The question of the reduction of the tariff must be considered. There are four bills ponding in the House. The Mills bill is supposed to reduce the tariff about $70,000,000, the Allison bill *4*. 000.000, the Randall bill $30,000,000. and the Forney bill $18,000,000. Thns it seems that everybody is In some reduction of the tariff, and that however much the demagogues may try to deceive the farmers, the tariff will surely be reduced. The House has passed the Mills bill and the Senate has passed the Allison bill. The question is cer tainly a live one and it seems that the tariff will not be able to get away with out losing at least a part of its tail. We try to be as decent as the subject will allow in the Jerome B. Bell matter and we trust the public will bear with till Boll stops or the Star changes its course. Bell himself is unworthy of notice, but the Star is a Sunday paper with more or less circulation, and we feel some cal) to notice the paper, though the editor is well known personally as dis honorable, disreputable and absolutely unworthy of belief. It is one of the evils of the newspaper calling that aman without personal or moral worth may become an editor, and, while his character is unknown, his writing may have a weight entirely out of proportion to his worth. Under these conditions we shall deal with the subject only as necessity compels us. We esteem it a shame to Wilmington, as well as to the newspaper profession, that such a man edits a paper here. favor of 11 - The Seaford Review says: If the editor of the Evening JouHNAt. thinks he has any weight with the Delaware Legislature, why don't he come down Dover and fight a new constitution.

His pouent, Mr. Clayton, was making rangements to contest the election when he was shot dead by an unknown viiliau. Mr. Breckinridge is a member also of the present House, and at the time of the tragedy he was in Washington at tending to bis duties. The murder of Clayton was a shocking affair, as all deeds of violence are, but it furnishes no evidence that he was elected to Congress, or t hat his assassination was due to his political prominence. The deed has been condemned by the entire state, and ward of unusual value has been offered for the murder. The next House of Representatives has a Republican majority so small that many Democrats must be unseated to give the majority party a safe grip on legislation. With this policy well under stood and thorough lv endorsed Republi can newspapers now demand that Breck inridge be one of the Democrats to give up his seat. No evidence is presented on which to base this extraordinary proposi tion. and the right and wrong of the matter is not even discussed. Br« c'tinridge's seat is wanted ; an excuse, though a feeble one. cau be found for excluding him, a wholesale Indictment f ir murder has been found against the op a: a re people of a state, and he must go.

He has been credited and dis credited us people sympathize with or dissent from his picturesque views, but nobody has yet professed to look upon him as stupid.

The Legislature seems to lose sight of the fact that insurance panics are not compelled to do business in the state, and if they do go in they can Increase their premiums sufficiently to meet their losses from this source; that is, honest policy-holders and not the in surance companies must pay for the ras calities of those who get their property insured and fire it to get the insurance money. com case was so . ..in WELL-KNOWN PERSONS.

Dimes, Quarters and Dollars That Glisten and UiujE—The Severe Penalties Pre scribed by Law—Italians Predominate as "Shore™ of the Queer." , Complaints ore daily lodged In The Journal office about counterfeit money tbat is being circulated In New York. Small storekeep ers are the loudest In their lamentations Dimes, quarters and silver dollars are the coins with which they are chiefly victimized. In many instances correspondents inclose the bogus money for The Journal's Inspec tion. One of these coins—a cleverly counter feited 10 cent piece—was taken by a reporter to the assay office. "That's an excellent example of the style of money in circulation Just now," said an employe, snapping the dime in two. "It's mode of lead, antimony and glass. The anti mony produces that brilliant appearance, while the glass helps to harden the lead and to give it a resonant quality." "What is the process!" "The counterfeiter—who in nine cases out of ten is an Italian—takes a plaster cast of a coin and from this cast makes a mold. Then glass is poure^ into a crucible and melted. While it is in a molten condition lead is dropped in and as soon as these two ingredients assimilate antimony is added. The compound is run into the mold and a spurious coin is the result. Before being foisted on the market it bos to be subjected to a finishing process. In the first place, all irregularities on the edge« are adjusted. The coin is then put into a bag of sand and shaken. This removes any undue sharpness of outline. If the result is not considered perfect the counterfeiter resorts to the "potato" process —that is to say, he sticks the coin Into a raw potato and leaves it there for several days. Those shiny, slippery peculiarities noticeable on oil spurious money ore removed by potato juice." According to the assay office there are more bogus dimes than dollars in circulation. Dimes do not excite suspicion so much ns dol lars. Day after day street car conductors are victimized by the bogus dime. A counterfeit silver dollar is very easy to detect. Although it may deceive the eye, the hand and the ear, a close inspection of its lottoring will prove it to be false. The reason is that the making of a mold from a plaster cast results in blurring the Inscription. For eigners suffer most from the bogus dollar. Small hotels and emigrant lodging bouses are favorite stamping grounds for the coun terfeiter and his accomplices. Since the conijmrative curtailment of the bobtail car nuisance the manufacture of bad nickels has perceptibly declined. United States Commissioner Shields ceivod The Journal man with characteristic urbanity and told him all be knew. "Is counterfeiting on the increase!" "Not in tills district." "What la the punishment for counterfeit ersf "Imprisopment at hard labor for fifteen years and $5,000 fine for bills, and ten years with $5,000 for gold and silver. A nickel coiner gets three years and a flue of $1,000." "From what class is the counterfeiter gen erally recruited!" "Our records show that In nine cases out of ten the accused is on Italian or has got his supplies from an Italian, and most of these Italians come from the island of Sicily." DIFFICULT* OF TRACING. It is no easy matter to trace counterfeit money to its source, and no one has explained the difficulties to be contended with more lucidly than the late chief of police, George W. Walling, in bis memoirs. In the first place, be says, it is necessary to discover whether the circulation of spurious coin is restricted to one locality. The coin or bill may pass through a great many hands before its spurious character is discovered, and then no one is quite willing to boar the lots, and so tries to pass it on. This is human natura Then again, a man may take a counterfeit coin from a customer who has received it in good faith, and who has perhaps handled large amounts of money. The customer, of course, if the character of the coin is pointed out, wifi probably insist that the coin given is genuina Long and tedious research is necessary to find out how luuooont each man is in those transactions, and who may or may not bo the counterfeiter. Of course the one who first passed the false coin uses every pre caution to conceal his Identity. It is estimated that more spurious money circulates in Europe than In America The best plates for the manufacture of five dollar bills seized by the secret service officers have been engraved in Paris. Perhaps the most impudent fraud that comes under the head of counterfeiting detected in England two years ago. By way of helping to commemorate the queen's jubi lee the English government issued 2.000.000 specially designed shilliuga The reverse of the coin resembled a sovereign. A syndicate of enterprising fakirs got hold of 500,000 of those shillings, bronzed them over and circu lated them as sovereigns.

All other interests in the trial of the great case of Parnell and The London Times are temporarily suspended, and even the parliamentary wrangle over home rule for Ireland waits, while the world wonders about the latest witness who answers to the name of Lo Caron. According to his own statement he began life as an Irish patriot, soon discovered there was nothing in it for him and en tered the secret service of the British government, did much curious and mys terious work in Franco and the United States, and served with credit in the Federal army i during the Amer I ican civil war. Ä Ho swears poei 9 lively, as the ■ newspapers have W already told in detail, that Mr. Parnell and many other Irish patri a ots who now dis ■fc. courage violence, gpHfc once aided the r SjS f Fenians; that he, * - - Le Caron, acted with the Fenians in the United States, and took part in the invasion of Canada, and that the Pamellites secretly continue their incitements to crime ami rebellion in Ireland, and that their public movement is only a cover for secret and dangerous designs against the Britisli government. , • # * LE CARON. Some Irish Americans of great prom inence are charged with complicity, and very naturally there is an eager desire among them to get at the complete record of Mr. Le Caron. John Boyle O'Reilly remembers meeting the man about the time the friends of Ireland held their noted meeting at Faneuil hall, Boston, but denounces all the witness' statements as to their being any secret meetings there, and calls attention to the significant fact that the Chicago convention, which Le Caron describes as a gathering of dynamiters, was presided over by the Rev. Dr. Betts, a leading Episcopal clergyman of St. Louis. Collector John E. Fitzgerald, of Boston, emphasizes the fact tiiat in America Irish political reformers of all shades of opinion act together, hence the presence at Chicago of a few Irishmen who advo cate physical force in no way committed the parliamentary party to their views, as Lo Caron claims. "The Irish national league of America," says Mr. Fitzgerald, is made up of all shades of politics, from the extremists to men who do not believe in a separate parliament for Ire land. even * * Careful inquiry in army records and circles shows that Le Caron served as.a bugler, and later became a lieuten ant in a colored regiment, but he never was a major or held any commission in the Army of the Potomac, as claimed on his cross-examination. For a few years he was "Dr. H. Le Caron," of Chicago, and was for a short time president of the State Pharmaceutical association, but de veloped a remarkable faculty for making enemies, and left there with the ill will of many other druggists. His title was gained as a druggist, and he did not practice as a physician. They say his real name is Beach, and that he acted druggist only to acquire some standing among the Irish. Messrs. Patrick Egan and Alexander Sullivan deny all his statements in regard to them, adding that lie sought their acquaintance in America but they did not encourage him It appears, however, that he was grad uated at the Detroit Medical college in 1873. At one time ho had some standing among the Irish of Cincinnati, was ac tive in their organizations, and also in the Grand Army of the Republic. As lus story comes out bit by bit, it appears that he w'aa "on the inside" of queer doings in Paris; was a Fenian in Canada in 1865, and a hospital steward in Joliet, Ills., in 1860; an "organizer" of various kinds in 1870, and a Nationalist in 1884, but through it all the same cool, tious,smooth spoken,secret service man in short, one of those mysterious charac ters developed in times of jiolitical con vulsion, a man who lives in an atmos phere of intrigue.
