It is natural that the President should
speak words of solemn eulogy over the
cold and dishonored ashfs of the Fifty

tortune can do much to strengthen the
bonds of sympathy. President and Con
gress were caught and crushed by the
same tornado of popniar wrath. The
musty old maxim, which bids us say
nothing but good of the dead, is some
times very difficult of application,
it is related of a kind hearted Ger
mau that, on a certain occasion,
he was one of a small party that
had essembl-d to bury out of sight the
remains of the meanest man any of them

dead the tongue of censure was paralyzed

Another Diplomatic Triumph,
Philadelphia Record.
It has been clearly demonstrated by
Governor Nicholls's latter to Secretary
Blaine that the lynching of the murderers
of Hennessy in New Orleans was a
purely local affair, In which there [could
enter no international questions. The
grand jury in New Orleans is now con
sidering and investigating the matter,
and until its decision shall have been
promulgated no further official action
can betaken.
STORIES OF THE DAY.
Knowledge Influences Opinion.
Several citizens of intelligence,
speclahility, wealth and honorable posi
tions were discussing the lynching at
New OrU>ans a few days ago, when the
flitter-footed Leak of the political
zoological garden here escaped aud said:
"Murder is a common thing in the
South. The people there think uothiug
of killing a few negroes "
A movement in the party indicated
that this discordant note had aroused a
wealthy aud intelligent man, who
had been a silent but an interested lis
tener to the previous general
tion. This man, who is a highly reputed,
honorable, energetic, useful citizen, not
a follower of p.litics for what ha can
filch from public office,
robb try and from ship subsidy, but one
who is a Republican from the principles
which used formerly to guide tile actions
of the party leaders, spoke earnestly
thus:

any other mau is. I have property in the
South and I am interested in Southern
enterprises, but 1 say candidly that
if I were in the South I would not vote
for a Republican to save his life I
would be aud feel just as the Southern
people are and feel,
otherwise, having knowledge of the
state of affairs and being interested in
the general welfare and progress of the
people."
The Mud Turtle retired to his cage end

Penlngton, Manlove Hayes, Dr. Hugh
Martin, Edward Reynolds, George W.
Cruikshank and Dr. George G. Evans,
trustees of Delaware College, met in
quarterly session in the college oratory
yesterday morniug. The most important
business of the session was the discussion
of the Morrill act, passed by Congress
August 30, 1890.
The act of August 30,1893, provides in
section 1 that each state
from the sale of public lands $15,000 for
the year ending June 10, 1890, and "an
annual increase of the amount of such
appropriation thereafter for ten years by
an additional sum of $1,000
preceding year, and the annual amount
to be paid theieafter to each state aud
territory shall be $35,000, to b» applied
only to instruction in agriculture, the
mechanic arts, the English language and
the various branches of mathematical,
physical, natural and ecouominal science,
with special reference to their applica
tions in the industries of life, and io the
facilities for such Instruction,"
Section 1 also provides that there shall
be no "distinction of race or color" made
in the admission of students, but that
separate establishments may be created
for whites and blacks, the sum appro
priated to be "equitably divided" between
the races The act further provides that
none of the monay shall be "applied,
directly or indirectly, under any pre
tence, whatever, to the purchase, erec
tion, preservation or repair of any build
tug or buildings.
Although the committee of trustees
appointed to consider the
shall receive
over the
, , matter,
strongly advocated accepting the money,
it decided that suitable buildings would
have to be erected by the state to contain
the necessary appliances. An electrician,
a mechanical engineer, a professor of
English literature and a veterinary
snrgeou would have to be secured. The
report was accepted and the trustees de
cided that tuition should be free for boys
of all color, and that a distinct school
would be provided for the colored pup'ls.
The new arrangement will provide the
college with eleven instructors, outside
of the Agricultural Experiment Station,
which Is supported by the national
government.
Strong hopes were entertained and ex
pressed that the state would substan
tially aid the execution of these admir
able plans, which will place Delaware
College on a splendid footing.
When the members of the General
Assembly arrived, as slated la yester
day's Evening Journal, the collegj
again visited and inspected. The visitors
were interested spectators to a skirmish
drill by the cadet batteries uudei
mand of Cantaiu Brown.
The visitors, to the number of 100,
then assembled in the college oratory
and a meeting for free discussion of the
advantages of the act was held. Dr
Lewis P. Bush presided and interesting
addresses were made by Manlove Hayes,
Hon John B Penington, Dr. L. P.'
Bush, Senator John W. Hall and Hon.
Charles B Lore. Mr Lore stated that
the committee proposed to ask the Legis
lature for $40,000 feeling that this
sum would be ueeoseary to carry out the
plans already advanced
When Mr. Lore concluded, the visitors
hurried to the station and boarded the
train for Porter's at Newark Centre. At
Porter's, the members of the General
Assembly boarded the 4 20 train for Dover,
and reached there soon after 5 o'clock.
