What wo have said about Fraukliu Ben jamin Colton, the statesman and pro moter, does not apply to those stock holders Onr advice to them is to un load Co'.tcn and amend the bill wlthwblrh jje has burdened them. The Evening Journal is favorab'e to the railway but down on Coltonlem. Til* Press of New York utters the first pathetic squeal thus; Ontrage number one was committed in the Assembly yeaterdiy by the Demo crats. Barlow W Dunlap, Republican sit ting member from Montgomery county, w-attnrnsd outof h's seat without even be lag given ao oppor unity to prove his tit • toit. Tbls was, of course, a virtual admis sloo that the case against him would fall to pieces if both aides vere heard The Press did not happen to look at the qceition in that light wheu Tzar Reed was building up a Republican majority of three to twenty-four. 1 Wk print a letter from New Ca«tle on the subject cf selling the Penn farms The argument that old Penn s will should he so sacred that it should work a great injustice to the people of Delaware 1« not to be considered for a moment. It. is fashionable among the Chinese to hold aaoastors in that tort of sentimental rev erence which wou'd prevent even acts of justice and humanity to the living, bnt such abnormal reverence for dead men's pishes is not observed in this country, A city ha« no basiness with capital, with accumulated weaitn under a system oi popular government like ours. Those farms should bs sold. In reference to the contest In the New York Assembly, the Albany correspon dent of the World telegraphs as follows: j "These facts present a most discourag ing picture to the friends of free institu tions They show the whole atmosphere of Montgomery county to be reeking with fraud and corruption." These are the wotdsol Colon* 1 Webster, the chair man of the Assembly Elections Commit tee, almost at the beginning of the de late today on the 'ormal motion to .declare W. Barlow Dunlap (Ren ) not entitled to a seat as the astembiyman from that oounty. John F Dwyer, the Democrat, was defeated tlie?e by open bribery, as The World clearly showed »ocn after the election. Everywhere the Republisane nou-ked the ballots, and when the floaters voted those which were handed to th<m each received .through the mail the next morning au cnve'op« containing a new 45 bill . In this ease the testimony shows that 384 votes were bought in oue county, under the protection of the Australian'so called seeret ballot. And yet there are a few inconsiderate, rrobably well mean ing people, who wish to burden the state of Delaware with the cumbersome, ex pens ve Australian Ballot system of noting The sequel shows that it renders vote baying and intimidation easier and safer instead of more difficult Our legis lation should glie ns ballot-reform that reforms We believe the Myers system »lone will do It. Wr publish to-day some more facts in regud to the street railwny contest. The poe'tion of the Evening Journal was defined yesterday as favoring all enter prises for the advene intent of the inter eats of the people that was eonsn tent with a wine public policy published to- day or at any time are un favorable to one of the railway compa nies It Is rlmply because the facts are unfavorable, Lot that our policy has changed. There is fo much Coltonism «bout one scheme in oue bill, so much de >ep* ion and triekery that we could not fill any ILing fort ruble to say cf tho If the facta enterprise In which Colton is engaged in . That tills city should have to emoting. better street railway facilities is without [ question, bat that any self teepee:lug 0 f moo should allow Fraukliu Ben ; jsmin Colton to eteeme entile control j their bill to , do any public duty is a matter of wonder if not of grave d ubt Mr. Colton is notecrupu enough, and he Is too calions to public opinion to father any worthy enterprise which needs the favor of the people The bill that he is reported to have taken to the Legislature Is too comprehensive and Mr. C> lion's methods dealing with the public and with Justice too comprehensive and careless to have grant of such extraordinary privileges. That auch privileges tuny have been con ceded to some other corporation is no reason why the wrong should oe repeated The men who have unguardedly or wrong fully approved of Mr Colton's scheme to fence in the earth" in oue bill may say that this opposition to Colton is political. That is just what Colton's Guardian Angel Pierce said when wo exposed him. is just as wide of the truth too. NOT hUN ON THAT PLAN It is a misconception of editorial duty maintain or to practice the snppres lion or the perversion even of the news Newspapers are published In the in terest of the people, notln the interest of individual men who desire their protec tion. The people demand the truth and all conscientious and fearless editors pro pose to give 1h«m the truth, because the people are always greater than persons. No intelligent editor can consider the proposition of protecting the people's servants by suppressing tbs truth Aud yet, recogoizlt.g the frailty of meu and the weakness of human nature, the Evening Journal is now and has al ways been willing to deal tenderly and with Christian charity toward any man who defaults tn his duty to the people, with his trust, provided ai ways, that be stiows some appreciation of the situa tion and does not pursue a policy of con cealment on the false idea that be has not done any wrong except iu being caught. The Evening Journal has not entered aud never will enter lute a scheme of conceal ment and suppression of the truth. We valus ihe good will of the people mors than the good will of any person who has or Is attempting to betray the people. Pursuing this Hr.e of conduct the Eykning Journal published the thefts Cummins: the real estate transaction between Pierce and Colton, by which Colton sneaked into the City Council, then the dishonesty of Pierce in handling the fiduciary funds of the loan associa tion; the briberies of the city council men, together with many miner offenses against the people, which it was of in terest for the offenders to couceai. Even after all of those things became inevitably public onr slow content po ravies, making, professions of a virtue they do not possess, suppressed the t rutli ; what interest we do not kuow. We simply know that we have no interest and that no persin can acquire or buy an interest here in suppression of file truth. If the people wish to support aud main tain papers run without virtue or intelli gence or independence they must look elsewhere than to the Evening Journal. This plucky, honest, and successful little paper is not run on that plan. THE PRICE OF SILENCE Frank E. Herbert, son of ex Treasurrr Herbert, has written a letter to the Morning News, making various state ments to expose his valuab'e services to the state and to the Evknikg Journal. From ths state for servlets as book keeper for his father, services which his father should have performed, he asks 41 ,705; from the Evkni.no Journal for having furni-hed facts concsruing the public fand«, he demands silence in re gard to his father s Indebtedness lo the state. In regard to the first slalm, the Even ing Journal has neither advocated nor opposed It, We did publish, as news, that Mr. Etsenbt«y, a legislator, said that "be was guuning for that claim and that It would never be paid " But that was simply what he said, not what we said. What the EvsNtNO Journal says now is that the claim for 41 ,703 should be examined on Its merits and, if just, it should be paid. We have said that the bookkeeping of ex Treasurer Herbert was admirably done. But, though Frank E. Herbert is an excellent accountant, he shows by the extraordinary claim against the Even ing Journal for perpetual silence, that he is neither a great political y economist nor a very sensible man. The Evening Journal had a right to demand facts in regard to the public funds, of which his father, as the servant of the people, was in possession. Those were not private matters. He had no right to conceal, and we persnmed then that he had no object in concealing the facts. The proposition which young Mr Herbert attempts to lay down is vtc'bus as well as illogical Concerning the publication of the fact that ex Treasurer Herbert had not settled with the state, he says: "It also shows the depth of the jour nal's interest in the dear old party and Its public men, in showing that while it professes to be the only Democratic newspaper tn Wilmington and the organ of the Democratic party in New Castle county, it is first in trying to make out that a Democratic state treasurer is a defaulter." 1/ » member of the Democratic party proves faithless to his public trust he is also faithless to the Democratic party. It Is no business of the party, nor of-the party's papers, to add the crime3 of con cealment, suppression and lying to the crime of default. No official is expected, much less required, to default his trust In the Interest of the Democratic party. On the contrary he is expected to be scrupulously honest in the interest of the party. Democracy is the synonym of hocesty and uprightness. An official who fails to perfotm his duties with absolute and distirguished faithfulness is as un true to Democracy as to the people. In this matter of ex-State Treasurer Herbert we have simply told the news »8 little of that as was sufficient keep the people informed and still Mr Herbert ample chance to redeem himself and preserve the good name of party for honest and faithful officials Tuo Evening Journal regrets that It cannot say that ex -Treasurer Herbert has kept, the funds of the state ln such a condition as to be ready promptly at the of a long term, and of an honorabl e useful career, to turu over the bal ance due the state aud be dismissed with plaudit of "well done thou good and faithful servant." Iu is not too Ute for Mr. Herbert to redeem hiiue.nl f. even now, but he should about to do it—not to try to throw blame on others for saying that he not done .what he should have done long ago. _ NEWSPAPER OPINION lion. Thomas E. Bayard. Richmond (Va.) Times. Id some respects, the most memorable speech that was delivered a few evenings ago, on the occasion of the fifth annual banquet of the Southern Society of New York, was that of Hon. Thomas F Bayard of Delawaro. Mr Bayard re ferred with a noble pride to the fact that twenty-two years ago he entered public life with no other object in view than to of seine essla'ance to the people of the South iu the hour of their inexpres sible humiliation - For a'long series of years, during the whole of which the Republican party were In trenched In power, as a member of the National Senate, he opposed with sigual ability and u idaunted spirit every measure that was Inaugurated to oppress the Southern people aud increase the calamities by which they were oyer whelmed He was taunted with disloy alty to tha National Government at the time the war was in progress aud de nounced as a traitor at heart, if not iu overt act. He was sneered at as the ad vocate of vanquished rebels and avoided the feiend of a section which bad no right, on account of its previous course, claim a hearirg in a free assembly. Through it all, the revilemeut, the con tumely, the contempt, Thonas F. Bayard remained true to his convictions of duty, standing firmly at his post as the de fended of the down troddou and the op pressed. suffering no proper occasion to pars without raising his voice in eloquent remonstrance against the tyranuy of a party intoxicated with power, and In spite of threats aud frown» and averted glances performed a service for the So-il horn 8tat.es which can never be forgotten by onr people. * * * Among those meu Thomas F. Bayard oc enpiea a pre-eminent position. Faithful, loyal, stauucl), unconquerable in the hour of adversity, be Is now In the hour triumph entitled at the hands of a grateful people to all the honors which should crowu the public servant whose strong hand did so much to turn the tide victory at the most critical hour of a battle npod which the fate of a whole people depended. LETTER8 FROM THE PEOPLE. Not a Birth right. To the Editor of the Eykniso Journal Fut: I read a letter tn your edition of the 23d signed "Put Be Rights," oppos ing the sale of the common farms, bas ing his argument on the shabby claims of a birthright, that we should hold for all time as a rich legacy to baud down to our future posterity; setting forth the idea of a great increase in the value of land in the future. Row much like the old adage, "wait horse until grass grows." Tell me, Public Rights, of what advantage that will be to the city or its inhabitants at any future time? If your remarks be true as to the oily possessing no right to sell the farms, surely then the farms become an impediment in our way of growth, forming as much of a boundary line as the river does on the front. aud the marsh land on either side of onr city Those who have lived a life-time in our city know how the farini have depre ciated in value, and we have of late years felt keenly their damaging effect. Know lng ths little or no revenue derived from that source, the desire to retain such a heritage for future generations is surely from the heart of one whose only ambi tion is to live in gloomy retirement. But I feel free to say that such is not tbeam bition of the citizens of New Casde, as was shown at our citizens' meeting held on Friday evening of last week. The right we possess to sell the farms is by the act of the General Assembly passed in 1885, and now is pending before the Court of Errers and Appeals in regard to title, which will be argued next June. For the benefit of Public Rights I cite a parallel case of an Interior city of Pennsylvania, which receivad a charter and deed from Penn for a pnblio square to be held trust for a specific purpose for all time If the trust was violated it would revert back to Penn's heirs-at-law It became necessary to divert from the charter aud apply It to a more needed demand coolest followed, iu which Penn's heirs at law demanded, inasmuch as the trust had been viulated, that they become pos sessors of the square. But the court de cided that it was land now in dispute, since the Declaration ol Independence was declared and now remained for Ihe General Assembly of Pennsylvania P BBS 4,1 * ct for what purpose it should ®PP Ued , It will be remembered that Penn came in possession of this tract laud by a grant from the Duke of York In IÖ8Ä The city cf New Castle (then town) holds it by right of possession charter and deed given some years after. Previous to the Declaration of ludepeud ence the colonists had been fighting only for their rights as British subjecls, they resolved to set this country altogether tree from British rule. Ac cordingly on the 4th of July, 1776, Con gress adapted the Declaration of Inde pendenee. By it they declared that the colonies were colonies no longer, but free and independent state« ; hence we are free and independent people. Since dawn of that eventful morning we say that "old things have passed away and behold all things hove become new We are now living as it were, in new dispensation; no longer subject rule and grants from King Charles II. from the Duke of York, tut to the of our own government, both state Federal, as founded upon the constHn Lotalty.

Stair Correspondence Evmnino Journal. Dover, Feb. 27.— Both Houses ai jourueri this morning to 5 80 p m Mon dpy. The day was marked on accouut of Its dullness lu both bouses. There was no Boss-Pilling tilt in the Senate, aud the sweet d ive of peace hovered between Messrs. Hutson and Higglus who are the two big H's in the lower body. The Bole of Division. In the Senate this morning the rule of division was again suspended and Edward Peter Haimlsh was refused a divorça from his wife Veronica Harmish. Edward Peter, with the kindly assistance of Rep resentative Ridgely, engineered his bill of divorce tLrough the lower chamber, but his wife came to Dover to day and after au Interview with several of the senators succeeded lu having It indefi nately postponed and further clluched by having a motion to reconsider laid on the table. "Tarn the D—d Rascals Out." Senator Williams met the Evening Journal correspondent in the corridor of the State House this morning aud smilingly said: "Well, I see you gave away in the paper what I said concerning the Sussex county Republican Levy Court" "Yes, sir," was the reply, "your rather forcible amendment to Charles A Dana's old cry of 'turn the rascals ont' was too good to keep, having the local appatlon it bad." Thn Seu*tor laughed heartily at the notice the Republicans took of the re mark. The third step towards "turning the rascals out" in - both New Castle and Sussex counties was taken to day when the Williams Three Commissioneis bill and the Ross Five Commissioners bill for Sussex connty were raad aud referred to the enlarged committee on cities and towns, which now has charge of ihe original Five Commissioners bill for New Castle county. This committee will do Is work next weak and will report the bills Thursday, If the jaunts to Washington aud Farn hurst do not prevent. Speaker - Ironin'» lllll. The Sena'e has already backed down from Its stand against divorces aud now it is coing to do tl.e same thing in re gard to county roads. This was made manifest to day, when the vote of indefi nite postponement of Speaker Birman's bill, to open » certain public road in Sus sex comity was reconsidered. The bill did not pass, however, and one of the senators said; "We have resurrected it to give It another burial " But this will not go, and before the session is over the Senate will be as completely whipped in on this question as it was on divorces. Who la Kenning Ihe Railroad? That is what ths Senate would like to know. The House this afternoon sent a joint resolution appointing a committee to perfect arrangements for a Legisla tive trip t.o Washington Tuesday or Wednesday of next week As the rail road officials' invitation had not been introduced into either body the House joint resolution which smacked somewhat of a grand walk, was laid on the table awaiting the invitation of the railroad company. The Cooper free text book bill was re committed to commute for amendments, that will make it less expensive in its operations. The bill authorizing Milford to borrow 450,000 for water works, passed the House this afternoon Mr. Eisen brey gave notice of a bill making it a misdemeanor for any school commissioner or school clerk to misap propriate school funds. It imposes a fine of from 420 to 4-5PO with coBts of prose cution, aud on failure to pay the fine, imprisonment of not less than three months nor more than two years shall be imposed. The provish ns of the act shall be deemed cumnl&tlveand shall not affect or impair the individual liability of any such commissioner or clerk in any civil suit, wh ch may he brought against them or either of them. This bill meets with much favor among the members He also gave notice of an act requiring the protbonotary of each connty to keep a strict accconni with the secretary of state of all books entrusted to him for sale. There has beeu much complaint that these state law books are placed in the hands of protbonotaries, and by some prooess they disappear and no tnouey comes iuto the state treasury for them Captain E.

"Lansdowne, ' a prominent title in English poli tics of the eighteenth century, gives name to a station in the suburbs of this city, but has achieved great local fame as a purely fanciful designation of a wonderful Dress Goods textile. It describes an exact fabric « j i_ • WOO!, and being legally adopted as a trade mark can only be used by its owner, W. F. Read. Its wilful application to goods made by others is dishonest and illegal. But it marks a grand success. There are no novel ideas about the Stuff; fine silks and fine wools have been woven to gether for years, but there is a newness in execution that puts lightness and strength, delicacy and brilliancy together in the best way ever known. No other maker equals Read. Trade mark and fabric are united in the concrete idea, Lansdowne means a definite thing, and we take all the Lansdowne the maker places this market But there is a legion of imi tations. Quite naturally so. There is no patent on the idea. Read didn't invent it. He made it perfect and the trade mark protects from imitations all who desire his products. Germans. French and Amer icans have been trying hard to catch our enterprising towns men, but they haven't suc ceeded. The Lansdowne is peerless among the silk and wool Dress Goods, and the maker has been so positive in assertion of his right and title to the trade mark that the people heretofore willing to filch the name to promote sales of other goods have he come law-abiding.
