Scarcely, day passes that the Repub

some quarter. Frequently it is a blow
struck in tbe house of its friends. The
deadlock in Nebraska, of eighteen days

succeed a Republieau Senator at Wash

Ways aud Means Committee ot

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
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

tious determination to do their duty.
This being the case the whipper

irresponsible. If not insolent newspaper
writers, do this, or kill that

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

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,

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.

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

No matter what a scoffer may say of
religion; no matter what a cynic may

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

sefiBhness, meanness, ignorance aud
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

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.

devotes his life to preaching the gospel
of Christ will obtain a reward whose
price is above rubles, incomparable,

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

<n outrage aud abomiuation. an insult to
American iustitutious to declare that it

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

Two More Evangelistic Servi
ces at the Rink [Yesterday.
Throngs Attend the Meetings of Yes
terday Afternoon and livening-The
Return of Christ and the Evil of Pro
crastination Preached—Earnest After
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.
Ilolug Near to (toil M Not Accepting
The usual service of song opened the
evening meeting service. Mr. Sankey

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
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 "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

Academy—"City Sports.
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
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.

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.

Each recurring season brings
fresh pleasure in Dress Goods.
A wonderful interest attaches
to the first views of the new
patterns and colorings that
come from the textile artists
of Franch and Germany. The
interest is also great in the
stuffs from New England and
the vicinage of Philadelphia.
But the curiosity is keenest for
the important designs.
The pleasure with these new
arrivals comes every day this
month. You may enjoy it
with our Dress Goods folks by
browsing through the aisles
and along the counters in the
Dress Goods section any day,
every day. The story cannot
all be told—it may be hinted at,
Here's a hint — Epingle.
Why Epingle? Because per
haps they're neat as a pin or
possibly because they'll take
pin-money to buy. Or again,
the little cross ribs are about
as thick as an average pin.
Do you catch the glint? We're
telling of the Silks and Wools
at the novelty counter. Some
irridescent, some hit and miss,
some two-toned. The prices
go: $1.75. $2, $2.25, $2.50.
Wools will be cheaper.
Black and white, types, ink
and) paper—no combination of
such facilities
can give a
mental photograph in color
of these dainties in Dress
Stuffs. But when
you see
them you'll see scores besides.
