Harris bore the charge, trial and conviction of killing his school girl wife with wonderful fortitude, but when charged with infanticide he be came Intensely indignant. Perhaps Senator Higgins wishes to annex Hawaii and use it to colonize Mahaffy, Bach, the two Smiths, Macal lister and the other beau ties there. Tbo exile plan worked so well on Sperry that he is enamored with it. In traveling about Egypt the young Khedive Is welcomed warmly every where but there are no Indications that the people are anxious to fight for him. He was mistaken in his strength aud a little previous in the attempt to teat It against England. Trk revelations tending to show that the Hawaiian revolution and the scheme of annexation were inaugurated by Claus Spreckels for the purpose of get ting a slice of the sugar bounty should make our members of Congress careful in any action they may take. Tee advice and admonition of a [fash ion paper to "dress quietly at funerals" cannot be applied strictly In the case of a mother-in law. That is an occasion when the loudest trousers aud the most bril liant tie a man can select harmonize cheerfully with lits hilarious feelings. The newest Paris bonnets seem to be "perfect loves" for theatie wear. Yon can't see the bonnet at all—only a butter fly or a bumming bird hovering about the site where the bonnet might have been expected to be—bnt that makes tho girl all the more lovely aud lovable to the man behind her. Governor Werts of New Jersey came forward with auother surprise In sending la the name of General Bird W. Spencer, a Republican, as a member of the State Board of Assessors^ Werts has a peculiar plan of breaking up the Republican party, the success of which is problematic. ( Tee organization of colored men into Democratic clubs in New Jersey is pro ceeding steadily. It Is expected that they will give efficient help iu the next campaign and the intention is to draw away a considerable number of colored men from the Republican party at the next election. Governor When a negro mob lynched a white man in North Carolina for raping a small negro child, for which eight of them were tried, convicted aud tenced, the governor promptly pardoned them. Tbe gov.ruor had some seuse; his sympathy was stirred fdr the father aud mother of tbe victim, not for the poor criminal whose lust was the only thing that distinguished him from a hyena. Ex Governor Foraker has nominated by Governor McKinley as sne eessor to ex President Hayes on the Board of Trustees of the Ohio State University. President Hayes was ap pointed by Governor Foraker. Hurrah for Ohio! The way they do things out there and the men they do them with make6 us glad that we are liviug—some where else. sen* been Scarcely, day passes that the Repub lican party does not get a bard blow from some quarter. Frequently it is a blow struck in tbe house of its friends. The deadlock in Nebraska, of eighteen days duration, was broken yesterday by the election of a Populist, Judge Allen, to succeed a Republieau Senator at Wash ington. A few Democrats voted with the Populists to keep a Republican out. Nobody hesitates to kick the dead Hon now. ï In mixing his cai-coupler bill, unsel fishly and without hope of reward of course, with politics Senator Chandler said, that the Democratic platform bad denounced the Republican party and par ticularly the Republican Senate,as it was then, bnt as it was not to be, for rot taking action on the House bill to protect the lives of railroad employes lie I would like to know what the Demo cratic Convention really meant in that matter, arid he asked ! Harris If he would explain it. Senator Harris replied: "I am uot able to answer S definitely the direct question of the Sen L ator, but 1 shall say to Lim "that tbe time has u-ver been, is not now, and 1 never will come, when I sbsll be such « p* devotee to the oiders of a national con ÿ Trillion as be seems to be." [Laughter], It require* equal aklll to meet a fool or a K fraud. Senator Chandler is so much of both that be bts never been thoroughly and distinctly classed with I either species of demagogue. Mr. Ways aud Means Committee ot H ft** House yesterday acted favorably I upon the bill for the admission, free of f duty, of work* of art, produced by Amer k lea** artiste reaiding abroad. There weie but two negative votes. The Free Art bill was considered, thé committee stand ing 6 to 5 in its favor, but the question was held open for two abseut members. They are believed to be opposed to the bill. This is one of those beauties of the McKinley style of legislation that it requires years of effort to ex punge, though every sane man is satisfied that it is wrong. The theory of the tax on art, under the in fluence of the protection craze, is that It stimulates genius, and rewards efforts of native painters and sculptors. The revenue was insignificant; the result was to exclude the very means by which genius may bo stimulated—works of art. It 1 b difficult to restrain one's contempt for legislators who have put their bands to such work. It is not only ridiculous nonsense ; It Is depressing contemptible Blllluess. No body of men ever had more ad vice and instruction, none ever needed less, than the present Legislature of Delaware. It is composed of thirty men far above the average In Intelligence and exper ience, and the peers of any mon auy where in character and in a conscien tious determination to do their duty. This being the case the whipper snapper commands of small men aud irresponsible. If not insolent newspaper writers, do this, or kill that though often as humorous as thoy are harmless, are nevertheless un called-for Interferences. Men who have Intelligence and honesty do not need so much aud Buoh exact advice. If they should they would not seek It from those who have been so liberal In giving it. The people elected those legislators aud tbe people have confidence in their Integrity and in their discretion. The people will commend and perhaps condemn the acts of the members of the Legislature, but the people will not as sume intellectual aud moral direction of them and specify which bills they shall pass, which bills they shall kill. Tbe people are willing to allow the members some discretion In the premises. It Is a curl ous mental and moral sondi tion that a man of Intelligence or virtue must put himself into In order to stir Ills sympathy for that brute of Paris Texas, in human form, who ravished a little white child and then murdered hsr by tearing her quivering limbs BHunder, and refers to him tearfully as a "poor negro" Probably such a man's mind and heart are working all right, but we doubt it. The negro might have had a long legal contest, lustltnted and supported and finally crowned with the trium phant success of saviug his neble life, in order to gain reputation for an unselfish lawyer with a political party which would afterward send him to the United States Senate. ■ cannot conceive why a white mau can have any other regret for the Paris brute. It really does not matter how such a creature leaves life; how the community Is rid of him, so It is rid ab solutely and quickly. Tbe man who expresses tearful sympathy for the poor negro is either a fraud or a fool. It is not natural, It is abnormal, for a man to regret the death of any beast which despoils and murders a little child, no matter whether he crawls on his belly, wabbleB on four legs, or shambles on two. But we MR. MOODY'S CRITIC. The matter and tho manner of the criticism of the Sunday Star on Dwight L. Moody were both offensive and in bad taste. It was a criticism upon Mr. Moody's Btyle of living and a comparison between that, as falsely alleged, aud his precepts He advised others, it was said, to live plainly, while be is living luxuriously. Mr. Moody is living quietly, as befits a student and a gentleman, so that tbe public lias no opportunity to know how be is served, or whether he needs much or little food. If it were not for the breach of confidence of a reporter, nobody would have thought of the mat ter at all. The Clayton House, where Mi. Moody is lhtug for reasons best known to him self and thoroughly satisfactory to his friends, is a comfortable place but it is ueither luxurious nor disreputable. Without haviug inquired into private matters, in which the public has uo special interest, we cau assert that Mr. Moody is not living in a more elegant or costly style thau he would live if he were in one of the hundred private families in Wilmington, who would he glad entertain him. His choice is likely made to secure privacy. Mr. Moody has done and is doing a great work here. He is doing arduous, flatting, wonderful work. He is doing what astonishes those who know thing of the mental and moral efforts, as well as tho physical strain, of making two speeches a day. is delivering two sermons a day which have sufficient originality and force to attract aud hold larger audi ences than any other man in Christendom could attract and hold for three weeks, or for three days without a sign of dirni nutloa or a decrease in interet or mem bers. No matter what a scoffer may say of religion; no matter what a cynic may urge against the methods or the words of Mr. Moody, there Is the fact of those great audiences, day after day. to hear the same beautiful story. Any mau who attempts to belittle Mr. Moody or to put discredit on his work stultifies bis violates all the laws of hospitality, kindly feeling; he exhibits a lack of proper reverence for the things which the majority of the good people through out the world hold sacred. to some He intelligence and own WEALTH 18 CONTEMPTIBLE. Compare, for a moment, the intellect ual and physical effort of Dwight L. Moody, In preaching two sermous here every day, in such a manner aa toon, gage the attention of an average of 3.005 persona, with tbe efforts which have chilled the soul aud cramped the intelli gence of the average rich man to obtain $ 00 . 000 . We should not allow ourselves to look with indiscriminate contempt on every rick man, because some of them have not sold their souls to the devil or exchanged all that is good and beautiful in life for vulgar masses of corrupting gold. There are some exceptions perhaps, but the average rich man is a personification of sefiBhness, meanness, ignorance aud greed. It is not Impossible for a rich man to preserve his heart, and shield his Intel lect from the blighting mildew of the money habit,but it is rare. Few men "make money," and at the same time, allow the generous or noble impulses of their natures any play. Avarice crushes all those emotions which lead men into a better life—freezes sympathies which make life worth living. What is fifty years expended in that groveling pursuit of wealth, even If sue cessful, compared to the ability; the Intellectual, moral, aud physical effort —blessing alike the man who makes it and lifting up the hearts aud minds of those who hear it—required to preach two sermons a day to !!,009 people! It is often remarked that intellectual effort commands less pay than any other kind of effort. That may be true, but intellectual and moral efforts com mand more attention and gain more love than a million fortureS can gain or give. They give the man greater satis faction and pleasure hero, and procure for him eternal bliss hereafter. The mau who pursues the dollar with that devotion which suppresses all that Is noble, gets what he is stcnggling for. Few men and fewer women will envy him his character, his reputation, or blood stained wealth. The man who devotes his life to preaching the gospel of Christ will obtain a reward whose price is above rubles, incomparable, unspeakable, eternal, lives a life that is beautiful, lovely, honorable, God-like * Meantime ho NEWSPAPER OPINION. I'tali Mini the Gentiles. New OrlwniH Times*Democrat. A large number of the so called Utah Gentiles—that Is, the uon Mormous— are protesting against tbe admission of the territory into the Union, 011 the g round that if It becomes a state the lormons, protected from Federal inter ference by state rights, will convert Utah into a hierarchy, re establish polygamy, and rule tbe new state auto cra'tically aud arbitrarily. It is to be hoped that the protests of this small band of malcontents will receive «0 con sideration, for they deserve none. There does not seem to be the slightest doubt, among all Intelligent citizens of UtEh, that the Mormons have finally bean compelled to recognize the law, aud have definitely abandoned polygamy in good faith. They know how an attempt to revive it would bring ruin on them, and they do uot seem to bave the slightest desir so. Moreover, Utah has filled up with non Mormon settlers. If It became a state an even greater immigration would set In, against which tbe Mormons could not hold out long. They have been frequently outvoted of late ; t hey will be In a minority throughout Utah within half a dozen years of the time it enters upon statehood. Experience has sbowu too often that no sect or society can long hold power in au American state, aud even if the Mormon Church attempted to play n big part iu politics it would uot able to do so very long. There is not, however, the slightest reason to fear any trouble from the Mormons in Ulali. The men who wish to keep that territory from Btatehood are a small clique who find it profitable. Although In a hopeless minority, they have yet been able, through the Federal Govern ment, to hold the offices, to control the territory, and to bully and plunder the Mormous. Taking advantage of the popular prejudice agsiust "the latter day saints" because of their former polygamy, these Republican Gentiles have resisted every effort to give the territory popular aud republi and have thus way of its progress Their prejudiced no consideration re to do lit can government stood in the and advancement, arguments deserve whatever, and should be rejected. It is <n outrage aud abomiuation. an insult to American iustitutious to declare that it is dangerous to trust the people. The great majority of Americans refuse to believe this, aud insist that Utah shall be made a state. They are uot likely to pay any attention to the protest of the clique of Uentiles in Bait Lake City who have been growing rich by keeping Utah iu a territorial couditlon, and who want to keep it so because of their own selfish interests. Congress is likely to admit Utah, aud it ought to do so. Charming Girl.! tloneat Clerks! Htvr York 8nn. The number of large defalcations, in volving betrayals of trust, is visibly less than It was formerly; aud in number and variety embezzlements do not keep pac* with the constant increase of the volume of the mercantile business, embezzlement is uo longer an every day occurrence, and tbe word iudeed ha« cessed from use in this state as a iegei definition of the offence of larceny by breach of trust. A retail establishment in tbia city has recantly unearthed a number of petty thefts, ail charge able, as investigation shows, to male and n it to female clerks, though tbe latter outnumber the former iu tbe pro portion of five to one. During tbe past ten or fifteen years there lias been a prodigious increase in the number of girls and young women in tho sales and cashiers' departments of retail dry goods shops. There are female cashiers, ac countants, auditors, bookkeepers, entry clerks, and cash girls. They are Intel. Hgent, accurate, alert and almost with out. exception honest. It is probably no exaggeration to say that considerably more than one half of the money daily expended by retail purchasers in New York passes through tbe bands of women. Yet an act of dishonesty among this great army of clerks is rarely beard of, and in the few isolated cases which exist, they are usually tbe result of some gratuitous complicity with some male clerk. Evon in large wholesale houses, the number of female clerks in the cashier's department ia decidedly on the increase: and this would not be ao, were uot such female clerks found to be trust worthy. This high record for probity and fidelity amid the temptatious which small wages are supposed to interpose, is creditable indeed ; and the wonder is that it 1» not oftener referred to by those for wh'm the working girls of New York — blese their diligence, bright eyes, and cheerful spirits! constitute a sympathet ic theme for homily, sermon and lead ing article. Au COAXING INTO HEAVEN. Two More Evangelistic Servi ces at the Rink [Yesterday. GREAT 0R0WD3 AND MUCH FERVOR Throngs Attend the Meetings of Yes terday Afternoon and livening-The Return of Christ and the Evil of Pro crastination Preached—Earnest After Meeting*. The two meetings at the rink yester day were attended by great crowds. Religious enthusiasm was manifest in the reverential attention of the auditors. Before Mr. Moody's anival last night Job H. Jackson addressed the assem blage. He said that he was glad he had to speak of money matters in Mr. Moody's absence as the latter was much opposed to such discussion in a religious meeting. He wished to aunounce that, in order to give Wilmingtonians an op portunity of showing their appreciation to Messrs Moody and Sunkey collections would be taken up to night, Wednesday aud Friday evenings. Many people crowded into the inquiry room at the conclusion of both services. After the night sermon, while a prayer meeting for women was continued at the rink, a meeting for men at Delaware Avenue Baptist Church was conducted by Evangelist F. T. Pierson. THE EVENING MEETING. Ilolug Near to (toil M Not Accepting God, The usual service of song opened the evening meeting service. Mr. Sankey saug "Th Thy Cruse of Comfort Failing" alone, and "Saviour Lead Me" with Mrs. M. E Bowman. The choir and audieuce again »truggled through "A Mighty Fortress is Our God" at Mr. Moody's re quest, Mr. Moody took for his text Mark xii, 34: "Thou art uot far from the kingdom of God." He mentioned Judas, Pilate, Felix Agrippa, tbe quizzical Sadduceesand the haughty Pharisees as some of the Biblical characters who were very near to God at certain periods and who might have been saved forever bad they accepted the opportunity offered. He had no doubt but that, many of ills hearers were very near to God and he begged them not to neglect a decision until too late. Bnt three short steps led from Chris tianity to sin : Neglect, refuse, despise. Some might be present who despised the Church of God; they did not ten years ago. He believed that good as well as bad impulses sprang up. He had been told that he should give people time to make so weighty a de cision and illustrated the evil of such procrastination by the recital of a per sonal experience in Boston during the great fire there in 1871. He gave his auditors there one week to decide and within twenty-four hours mauy of them had beeil burned to death. He closed by earnestly appealing to everyone to ac cept God at once. THE AFTERNOON MEETING. The "Return of Our f.«'rd" the Subject of the Kvaugellat'a Afi. rnoon Dluconran. The song service at the afternoon meeting at tho rink inriuded a duet by Mr. Saukey aud Mrs. V. F. Pierson, of Baltimore and a quartette in which Mr. Sankey sang a solo part. Mr. Moody and Rev. Louis E. Barrett offered the introductory prayers. Tbe "Return of Our Lord" was tbe subject of Mr. Moody's discourse. He said that he believed that all Christians agreed that Christ will return to the earth; he knew of no sect who deny this. There was no need for contro versy on a pointy on which all Christians agree. We ouiy disagree as to th'e time and circumstances under which He will return. "I once thought," said Mr. Moody, "that Jesus would not return to the earth until humanity had become so good as to draw Him right down to the earth to establish His kingdom. I have changed my mind on that. I now think that He will come when it is dark aud set up IIis kingdom here for the protec tion and happiness of His people." Tbe news of Christ's first coming was proclaimed by the angels; they also an nounced his resurrection from tbe dead and we say upon the same authority that He will come again. Christians worship a living aud uot a dead God. Their trust is uot in a dead Saviour, but in the risen Lord who bas promised to come again and receive Ills disciples unto him self—and every eye shall see him. It is human folly for people to set the time for the second coming of Christ. He 1ms said that only His Fathor knoweth of the day and hour. By this we are assured that His coming will be suddeu and unexpected. Except forth« thirty three years of Christ's life on earth, the whole world has been looking for the comiugof u man from Heaven. Four great facts about this central idea in Christian hope must, be noted; First—Christ has come; He has gone away ; tbe Holy Spirit has come to com fort His people, aud tbe whole world is expectin' His return. These give good ground for believing that be will come hack again. When he comes every eye shall see Him. We shall be where He is. That is what he is romiug back for. To receive aud reign over His people. He will not only receive us to Himself, but will briug all onr loved ones with Him,so that we. with them, aud all the saints of God, shall sit with Hiu> near the Fathei's throne. Kefused to Release Tyler. Easton. Md., Feb. 8.— The February term of the Circuit Court for Talbot county met here Monday. Before tbe formal adjournment of the November term the motion to release young Tyler, who was couvicted and sentenced last November, was argued by Hon. George M. Russum for the prisoner. Judge Stump yesterday overruled tbe motion on the ground that it came too late and should have been made at tbe time of the trial. New Hat Store. Howard B.

Probably one of the largest audiences that has gathered at, the Academy of Music assembled there last evening to witness the performance given by the City (Sports Burlesque Company. Every available seat in the honse was occupied and long before the curtain roBe "Stand ing Room Only" was announced. "Mur phy's Reception" was given as a curtain raiser in which a number of pretty faces aud shapely limbs participated. Much specialty work was introduced, all of which was applauded heartily. The entertainment concluded with a bur lesque entitled 1 'The Merry Buccaneers ; or Love aud Duty." The "S. R. O." sign was displayed last night for the first time this season and even standing room was scarce. Annie Plxiey. Next Saturday will wltuess the return to the Grand Opera House stage after a season's absence of a gieat local favorite, Annie Pixley. The long rest Miss Pix ley bas taken has resulted in a re newal of this artiste's many charms and graces, and her singing and dancing will be, as of yore, admirable in every way. Miss Pixley will make her reentree in a new play written for her by William Bain Gill Esq., author of "Adonis," "My Sweetheart," "In Paradise" and many other most popular and success ful plays. It is entitled "Miss Biythe of Duluth" and not only in the star's as signment, but in all roles has a special fitness. There will be plentiful chances for singing, dancing, and Miss Pixley's proverbial taste for beautiful dressing will be given full sway. Most of the songs will be new, written by Mr. Gill and composed by Harry Brabam. In Miss Pixley's new company are Misses Lulu Klein, Douglass, Messrs Frederick backet, Harry B. Bel), Fred J. Butler, Joseph Brentiak and others. The sale of seats for Miss Pixley's engagement is now in progress. Genevieve Beman, Anna "HI* Wedding Day." Charles Frohman's company will be seen at the Urand Opera House to night in "His Wedding Day." The play is de scribed as being the very climax of farcical effect, a play hi which time is wafted away as if by magic, and based upon the idea that "life is short—let's enjoy it." There is little doubt that the public, on the whole, prefers to laugh; and when artists of the rank of those employed in this cast are presented, there is an evidence of refinement which is unmistakable and yet the quality of the fun is not diminished. Boy* Save Your Penule* the Circus Is Coming. C. B. Jefferson, Klaw and Erlanger's "Country Circus," which comes to the Grand Opera Honse February 14-15 and Wednesday matinee must be "a great show and no mistake." From all ac counts there is no such exhibition of skill in working another kind of show into a legitimate dramatic story, to be found on the stage. The story is simple in itself. A Consolidât Ion.

The German weaver and his loom continue to interest many visi tors as he works out the square Damask TableCloths that com memorate the discovery of America.
