While Incensed Democrats sre can vas-lug their respective wards against the Every Evening and Inducing Democrats and fair minded rceu to withdraw their patronage, we try to preserve a calm de meanor and couteoiplate our mongrel mugwump neighbor's waning fortune with Christian resignation. We have tried to advise It, aud to show It too, how to run a newspaper, but it Is Impossible to educate men for the newspaper busi ness in a cotton mill or a corner grocery, "They are not In It," and never will be. The governor knows that just behind Dickey elands Pat N«aiy, and that while the mugwumps are kicking, this pair will be voting the boys—and votes are what conut —Dover Sen tael. The fact that too many voters were bribed and Imported and then counted here at the November election has made the chtDges in oat laws, which regtrdod as advisable before, absolutely neoessary now. Only when the Republt cae party mauagers cease to bribe and debauch the negro voters wilt we have anything like fair or pure elections here were Tns recipe for defeat within the Re publican party of this olty and county is for a candidate to be brought out by K. Eden Bach and to be supported by the "organization.'' This recipe has been iu use In ths political kitchen for some time, and has never beeu known to fail.— Morning News. Private Secretary Bach may not have foisted his particular cinnidates on the party, but he is still on top <iates, one and all, will go to him and humbly sue for bis assistance on election day. Bac has a firm seat In the Re publican party saddle and a little "knock out," like that does not affect him, The candi of Saturday, because Boas Higgins and all the Federal patron sge is back of hint. The News should not be too severe on Bach now,for it may have to eat another dish of crow here after What boots It to overthrow Bich with even worse methods of de btnehery and corruption than Bach him self employed? The unduly excited Dover correspond ent ef the imagines his news and mixes bis meta phors thns : When the news of Dickey's selection was wired to Wilmington It raised a torrent of disapproval that threatened to «nlmluate in a public Indignation meet inj The uewsdid "not raise a torrent." there was nothing that "threatened to culminate," not even ex-Solicitor Turner end no other liquid calamity was appre hended here The greatest disturbance of the elements seems to have occurred at Middletown, at Dover and at Milford, and among those who are awaiting great calamity like the appointment of a competent man and a good Democrat to rush pell nrell and fall over each other In their haste to join the Republican prr 7 ant shout for "Higgins, Me, Bach and Mahaffy." Georgetown Journal 80 me Samuel H.

The ven it of the ««1101110 In which thia city ad ministration is held among the people. Mr. Baynard should not bare given that quasi endorsement to the administration that was pat in as a reform administra* tion. _ Thk best-thinking Democrats of Wil mington sre disgusted at the course pursued by Governor Reynolds in sp pointing John T. Dickey county treas urer and recaiver of taxes of New Castle county under the Five Commissioners bill. And well they should be. It was only last fall that the honest Democrats of that city rebuked the Democratic paity for trying to fol«t upon them men of that stripe —Georgetown Republican. The value of the above opinion Is gov erned by its sonud rather than by its sense. Who sre "the best-thinking Democrats" and how did the Georgetown sage com municate with them? What was "the course pursued" In making a single ap pointment? In writing hurriedly con cerning things of which an éditer is in profoundly Ignorance he should use phrases which do npt define Ms predica ment so aconrately. He should dissemble and at least appear to be capable of logical thought. Besides that piece of general and free advice we would remind the impatient bnt doubtless well meaning editor that the Republican papers here assert that the "honest Democrats" did not carry the election laet fall, and the Evening JOURNAL as serts that It was carried by the dis honest Republicans. Which of these forms of expression the Sussex sage may prefer, after trying to think, we cannot predict, bnt the election returns do not show that the "honest Democrats rebuked the Démocratie party " "Honest Demo crats" do not oome from Baltimore to vote here, and they are not blaok. Wuilk the Republicans have nomi nated a fairly good ticket,the Democrats have nominated an infinitely better #ne. The difference in the manner in which the nominations were made is as radical as the difference between black and white. The Democrats met in a genteel and orderly manner and selected an cellsnt set of men who represent the best oit monts. In the city, gone through one of the most disgrace ful and costly struggles ever known in the city, in which the principal ful candidate expended $3.200 on elec tion day alone; in which the breweries sold more beer than was ever sold before; during which there were riots and fights without number, and negroes sold their votes for a drink of whiskey, and yet they dneed only an average ticket. They had, in fast, a great struggle to shut out candidates representing the worst elements of corrupt ward politics, and they did it with the devil's own weapons. The citizens are calling for reform; but how reform can be reached through the means that have been used to put this ticket In the field, is enigma to a sane man. It is likely to be the same kind of reform that the present city administration has exploited It may be that these nominees,if eleoted, will not go the same gait and ex ths highest Intelligence The Republicans have fallivoHS when have pro an pursue the same methods of corruption, but their conduot in this election shows that they will merely vary the methods, not change the prevailing sentiment. Thk MoKluley tariff bill Increase 1 the cost temporarily, of a gallon tin pail about one oent, while It decreased the contents of that pail, when filled with eatar Ï 0 cents.—Milford News aud Advertiser. The tjn clause cost the people than the value of the entire Welsh tin plants, or $3,000,000. before we conld make even a tin pall, In bonus alone. At the rate we have been using tin It will contlnne to cost, in bonus alone, at tire rate of four times the value of the plants every year. Bearing this cost as a bonus,In addition to the normal price of the tin Itself In mind la curions issus of the same paper, that after a probable expense during elx years of perhaps $70,000,000 or $150,000,000, we shall not even then have the costly in dustry, for the "English manufacturers are now offering to sell at the old price and PAY THE DUTY THEMSELVES.' Thus the tin industry will still remain In the possesssion of the English and cost ns the bonne besides, somewhat mixed? more enormous It to read In the same Is not the editor That Is, however, average sample of the reasoning of pro tectionist cranks. The McKinley bill has Imposed a burdensome tax to purchase Industry, and the English would rather pay the tax than lose the Industry, Did McKinley know the English would be have In that manner? Did he know that the English conld make tin and sell it here at a net price of J cent per ponnd? If he Whew these things, why did foolishly increase the cost of tin to 8 and 10 cents per pound? If he did not know them, then he does not know enough to legislate. There Is something which an an he wrong the learned financial eiitor shonld explain. There is one thing, however, that the editor need not plain, for the people are fully aware from Its effects on sugar and tin that the tectiouist cranks ex pro were ignorant mendacious when they said that adding a tariff duty decreased the cost and sub tracting a duty increased the cost of goods. LOOK AT THIS AND THEN AT THAT It is generally understood thst the curious editorial potponrri of the Every Êvening and the "Democratic Glasses" of the Sunday Star are written by the same man if not conceived by the same brain, namely that of Mr. Taylor. That being true, the value of the screeds in the former may be.eatimated by the calm and sensible contributions to the latter by the same man on the subject. The Every Evening says; We are sorry to be obliged to ad venely criticise Governor Reynolds's appointment, but there is no denying the fact that it is far from satisfactory to the great majority of the Democrats of New Castle county. ♦ * * One very obnoxious feature of the appointment Is Its palpable recognition of that system of boss dictation at the Democratic pri marie» which made the oennty tax office :.n eyesore In local politics, and caused the revolt that gradually led to Repnbil can tocn-macy In New Castle county Tien with that admirable ability with w, ich men of pare and strong convie sa me ai tions can be on two sides of a question at the same time, the Sunday Star says: Governor Reynolds, on Wednesday last, appointed John T. Dickey of this city county treasurer and receiver of taxes, aud John F. Staats of Townsend, county comptroller, under the new Five Commissioners bill Both gentlemen are nousslly well qualified for the duties of their respective positions and will make very faithful and acceptable olHiials. There was considerable adverse criticism of Mr. Dickey's selection, but it was based on no reasonable ground and was mainly on account of his having been a county collector for six years. Bnt it can be truly Bali of Mr. Dickey that he ood collector, and that neither was a g the public Interests nor the interests ef the Democratic party suffered while he held the office. He is honest, he is capa ble, and he is a good Democrat, and no reasonable man can ask anything in ad dition to these qualifications. The gov ernor made a good aeljetion when he ap pointed Mr. Dickey. Of coarse plain, straightforward, hon est men will not understand which of these extracts expresses the real convic tions of the writer and which is intended in a Pickwickian, or perhaps sniffian, sense, the community and ae that famous old lady of Boston said as she kissed the cow, "Everybody to his ta 3 te; here's mine." |Peok But the ohoice Is before Those, who for reasons of their own, wish to ascribe bad motives to Governor Reynolds for [exercising his judgment and for making an appointment that seemed to him not only nuebjectionable, bnt admirable, have full opportunity to exercise their bias by seizing this oppor tunity, but those who take a calm view of the situation tend put themselves in Governor Reynolds's place will readily perceive that he could not do otherwise and that he has done well. THE CAP FITS; WEAR IT. It is presumed the next move the Democrats will make will be an attempt to pass a law prohibiting all Republicans from voting.—Odessa Herald. If bribed and imported negroes and worae white repeaters are Republicans, then It may be said truthfully not only that the Democrats, but all decent, honest citizens will make the attempt to prohibit them from voting. The Herald cannot name a single respectable citizen, who had paid his taxes and was legally entitled to the privilege of suffrage, who has been prevented from voting, except by the fraodg of some too partisan Inspector, like Colton. Such instances are not com pliances with,bnt infractions of, the law. Republican courts and juries consider them examples of virtue. Surely the Herald cannot be so lost to reason and patriotism, justice and good morals*hs to wish the suffrage made so unrestricted that the unblushing and subversive frauds practiced successfully last November and repeated at the Re publican primary here on Saturday shonld go unchecked, unrebuked. The Democrats have no objection to accepting the votes showing the sin cere, thongh misguided, difference of policy aud opinion of honest, respectable men, white or black, but they are de termtned not to be beaten at the polls by illegal, bribed and debanched voters. The laws will be more drastic as it becomes necessary to prevent fraud at the polls. It is a curious fact that the Republi can papers never mention the names of even respeotable and honest colored men who have been deprived of their votes It is still more cnrlous that while they contlnne the complaints from year to year with irritating iteration, those who are arrested and brought to trial for Illegal voting are almost without excep tion Republicans. At this very moment there Is a Republican Inspector of elec - tions under trial far depriving a duly naturalized and tax-paid citizen, a Demo crat, of his vota in November. Wte dou't claim, of course, that the Democrats do not offer Illegal votes, but the law applies to them, too. It is not a law against Republicans only, unless they choose to make It so by gathering all the illegal voters into their ranks The law is impartial ; It Is Intended to prevent frands, not to prevent Republi cans from voting. To assume the latter position Is to assume that the Republican party oontains a large number of voters who are not entitled to vote, That is practically the view which a great many citizens entertain; it is practically the position which the Re publican party has assumed in the twenty four atates—Including Indiana—where ballot laws have been enacted. If the cap fits, let them wear It. Sst. where are you going on Tussday, May 12th? Why to Breunas s opening, of course, for a good time, 800 and 303 East Fourtbjitreet. All are invited. Tl»« Weai he*.

The grounds of the Delaware Field Clnb at Elsmer# were opened auspi cionsly on Saturday and a splendid cricket match between the first elevens of the Field Club and the Riverton Club of Riverton, N. J., was played. About 200 persons, including members of the Field Club and their friends attended, 'among whom were many well known society people. The grounds were in prime order and the day was particularly fine The women of the association provided luncheon and decorated the house for the occasion. The names of the Field Club players were: W. 8 . Hilles, W. Home wood, J. P. Tnrton, J. E. Smith, H. R Brlnghurst, N. O Good, 1). J, Reinhart, Tilghmau Johnson, Joseph R. Wales, J P. Melds and E T. Martin. The visitors were: A Lane, J. B. Grubb, W. R. Coe, H. W. Dunn, J. R. C. Boyer, W. Tearon, Q Guest, O. Dennis, J. S. .Bloren and A. P. R Coe. The game was won by the home club by a score of 75 to 68 , The bowliDg of Hilles Homewood and Turton was fine, but half of the players collapsed in bat ting, so that they barely won, having only four minutes to spare. The Field Club lost the toss and the Riverton Club started in lively as if to "do" them, but they made little headway against the bowling of Hilies, Homewood and Turton. Toward the end it looked as though the game would result In a draw, time being an important factor and the clubs evenly matched. The winning of the game makes the second viotory for the club. Among those who attended the ■Wss sw—M —c Bigame were Judge Wales, Dr. J. P. Wales, Misses Richardson, Misses Dure, Miss Cornelia Draper. Mrs. 8 . Rodmond Smtth, Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Nieids, Miss Bella Wales, Miss Rachel Nowiand aud William M Canby. The junior organization with a nucleus of twenty-one members was formed by D. J. Reinhart, chairman of the junior committee, on Saturday aud they oceu pied the annex specially built for them When they have had some practice the junior eleven of Philadelphia will be challenged. Another Fine Victory. The Wilmington Base Ball Club met the strong Woodland team of West Philadelphia at the Riverview grounds on Saturday afternoon, and the most interesting game that has been seen there this season was played. Black, the new catcher for the home club, made his first appearance and did some excellent work giving Burris, the little twlrier, fine eupport throughout the game. Although the crowd of spectators was small, it was an appreciative one, and none of the good plays were allowed to pass by un noticed. The Woodland playei a better fielding game than the home clnb, but could not compare with the local players In hitting.
