But it is ominfous for the Goulds that in the list of their guests the name of no Astor or Vanderbilt ap pears. Can it be that these money spinners carry "shop" into society, that enemies in finance cannot become friends la fashion? Gould will be watched with interest. The «octal career of Miss HERESY AND THEOLOGY. The recent agitation« In religions cir cles, aud especially the trial of Dr. Briggs for heresy, have introduced the question: What is theological teaching? Dr. Briggs has been one of the most successful teachers of what be concsived to be the theology of the present day But a numerous and respectable body of people, including professors, ministers, officers, and members of his church, be lieve that he baa been leaching heresy. He la awaiting trial the church courts on that charge. He is not shunning an issue, but court ing it. He is impatient of delay, aud has attempted in various ways «• bring the question* before the people and assert the correctness of his own position, hia latest attempt being au article in the Forum in which he discusses the lion. now before que« Fiom this article it appears tha' Dr. Briggs's conception of theological teaching Is that theology is one great branch of human learning, which is well worthy of serious study as any other branch, and if pursued in a rational way and in proper co-ordination with ether branches of learning, would do mere to develop a proper 00 ordination of all im portant branches of study than has vet been made in 1 - our American teach lug. The article ia a notable one because it is s formulation of tha efforts that Dr. Briggs and a great many other progrès» - Ive theologians are making to revolution Ize this branch of «indy in tha Uulted State». If they in their attempts the standard* of several of the churches will, of necessity, be re vised and changed to be in harmony with the teachings of tho ssmluariea. That isems to b* the potteut of the contest over Dr. Briggi iu the Presbyterian Church. Dr. Briggs has been teaching a theology which, though more agreeable to the religions cull of tbe day, is heresy to the doctors of the cult which has here successful are tofore prevailed in the church. The contest, of which the trial of Dr. Briggs il au incident merely, is to \A» termine the relative values of the new and the old cults, and to reject one or both of them, or harmonize them What ever may be the outcome of the Briggs trial is important only in its bearing on this greater contest as to what is theo logical teaching. THEY BUILOEDBfeTIERTHAN THEY KNEW. The campaign of 1888 was a blessing to the country. It may seem bitter Irony to mention Quay, Clarkson, Wanamaker and Dudley as the angels who brought any boon to tho omtry, bnt it is nevertheless true. They are tbs angels, in disguise. It is universally conceded that, in their various capaeities, they achieved Republican success and put Benjamin Harrison in an office which James G. Blaine could not win. It cannot be said that they had a more magnetic candidate or a more popular cause. The wildest advocate of Benjamin Harrison's fitness for the Presidency never claimed that tbe people regarded him with a senti ment stronger than toleration. He never posed as a popular idol. The party plea of "protection for American industries" in the Blaine campaign was as convincing as tbe pleas In the Harrison campaign against "British free trade" and "a cheap coat on a cheap man," With an equally truthful and sensible campaign cry, it Is certainly unreasonable to maintain that Harrison would make a more successful canvass of this country for popular suffrage than Blaine had made. Nobody pretend* that he would, or could, or did make such a campaign. But be gained the chair which Blaine lost. Nobody will pretend that there was any thing bewitching or captivating about Mr. Harrison's personal traits or landen ties to give him a superior place in the affections, in tbe ed miration, or in the confidence of tbe people, to that held by Mr Blaine. Quite the contrary. Nobody will pretend shat Mr. Harrison was elected by Democratic voters who seceded from their own party to enjoy the felleity of voting for the man from Indiana, who ran under his grandfather's hat. de- Hence the conclusion la inevitable that It wa*,tht methods, sot the man or tbe^cam a pslgn cries, which won for Harrison what was lost for Blaine. Those methods and the money'which made them possible, were furnished by Quay, Clarkson, Wanamaker and Dnd 1.7, The men, the methods, and the means which pnt Harrison in the Presidential chair, also counted in the dishonest Con gross which passed the "infamous" Mc Kinley bill, and threatened to pass the Force bill, and are the causes and events which have brought about the secret bal lot laws in thirty-three states. The success of the schemes of that quartette of angels has procured the triumph of the secret ballot. By their success then they made another success, another Harrison, Impossible. Quay, Clarkson, Wanamaker and Dudley did the country an Incalculable good by foisting their candidate, by their meth ods, upon the country. The selfish and saturnine candidate, whom they elevated, hat done all In bis power to strengthen his own unpopular ity and increase the national diagust since the elevation was consummated. They ail have contributed to the tri umph ef the secret ballot, thus prevent ing the repetition of the intimidation of voters in Massachusetts, Rhode Ulaud and Ohio. "Blocks of five" cannot be marched to the polls in Indiana; aud whatever "soap" may be used in Maine, New Hampshire, New York or West Virginia will have to be distributed in blind faith that the recipents of it will ko I p their bad bargain and vote as they are bribed. It follows that in the next campaign the professional corruptionists will be lese in demand as chairmen of campaign committees than heretofore, because they will be less useful. The Country owes that quartette of backers for making Mr. Harrison Presi dent, and Mr. Harrison for the acknowl edgement. a id recognition of them and of their methods, a debt of gratitude which is Inestimable. They forced the secret ballot upon the country—they builded belter than they knew. NEWSPAPER OPINION. Q«eer Olvll Service Reform. Pit ladelpkla Record. The Secretary of the Treasury has de cided that promotions in his depart ment shall, after January 1, be made on a basis of merit only, and as the result of competitive examinations This is a move in the direction of Civil Service Reform to the extent of acknowledging the soundness of its fundamental prin ciples.

The competitive examinations will be made by a Board of Examiners of his own appointment and not by the Civil Service Commission.

Wilmington is a pros perons aud (growing city, and she has managed te get across tbe Brandywine with tbe present bridges; let us hope that after a "little while," when the tswn becomes more like a city, she may have the bridge. It may be again the very best interests of Wilmington to oppose building a bridge, and if thought It would Injure the business there we would say, build the bridge.

Kirby, a well-known farmer resident near Queenstown in this county, was visited several times on Sun day by an unknown negro. When asked the abject of bis visits he would at no time give a satisfactory answer About. 12 o'clock that night the family of Mr. Kirby was awakened by a noise outside, and Mr. Kirby dressed, took his gun and went into the yard. He was startled to Sud that the stme desperate looking negro had returned. Mr. Kirby at once erdered him to leave the prem ises, which he refused |to do. He then fired his gnu twice for the purpose of frightening the negro, and as soon as the weapon was unloaded and Kirby defense less the negro rushed for him and grabbed blue by the throat, A battle en sued and lasted abont fifteen minâtes. Mr. Kirby, when completely exhausted, called for aid His wife and daughter, being the only ones oa the premises, went to bis aasist tance and struck tbs negro several blows, causing him to release his a old on Mr Kirby. At this stage of the battle the negro called for companions, and Mr Kirby expecting to be attacked by others, concluded to disable the negro if possible. He reached for a club end succeeded in striking him several blows. His skull was fractured and death followed almost instautly. A jury of Inquest was summoned yes terday afternoon, and a verdict was ren dered of justifiable homicide. It was learned to-day that the negro entered several houses in the same neighborhood yesterday, a»d made desperate threats of robbery and mnrder similar to those made on the premises of Mr Kirby. He was an entire stranger, aud his presence in the county cannot be accounted for. It is supposed by some that he was insane, but this is doubted by many. Mr. Kirby is a well-known and honorable man and he is considered Justifiable for hia course in the matter, acting as be did in self defence. The negro's remains ware ordered te be buried by the county. He was about 30 years of ago and poorly clad. State's Attorney T. B. Hopper visited the scene of the homicide, aud was present at the inquest held on the place of Mr, Kirby. AMU&EMCNIS Grand Opera House. A good bouse greeted James B.

Every act was appreciated and heartily ap plauded, ' while the refinement, which was a noticeable feature during the whole of the entertainment, Is creditable to Mr. Reybold of tfie Academy who has sense enough to know that vulgarity never is desired. The burlesque "Buffalo Bill Abroad" was a novelity In itself anJ the management have struck tbe right idea in straying from the path of tiresome extravaganaas and giving clean, bright and humorous spectacles. Billy Carter sang well and was funny; Smith and Campbell ably helped to provoke mirth: Miss Lizzie Hall sings and dances well; Harris and Waiters were the hit of the evening, while Antonio Van Coffer, the elastic marvel, held the audience spellbound. As a whole, the Williams Company was the best burlesque attraction seen here this season. a a Cunningham'» ginger ale. In the United States Circuit Conrt.

Two years of extraordinary experience have taught us how to organize for such a sale as that which began here yesterday, but sources were taxed to the ut most The two complete stocks, one in the Chestnut street Ar cade, another on the second floor, were piled up like great drifts of snow. The quick de mand all the day long melted them away often as renewed, and the 1891 Midwinter Sale of Underwear began with a boom that makes the past pale. The fact of the selling makes useless and needless the repetition of the argument for the sale. Snowy Days have great things in store. Following the present offerings in Goods and Underwear will come the January Fair. It will 8e full of great motives that have been in course of composition for months. It will not have the re-hash of stock taking and other thread bare expedients of past retail ing. It will be alive, intense with the force of original move ment in fresh merchandise. Even our great resources will need a few days to make all things ready. When all is pre pared we'll tell you—not be fore. Corset Covers' Do you realize the vaine of the 12o Corset Cover?
