Where the Guilt Lie«.
There Is not a fender upon any car In
tbe service of the Wilmington City
Railway Company. There is nothing
between the manhood, womanhood and
childhood of our city and tbe mutilation
and death which lurka beneath tbo
wheels.
While companies of other cities have,
by reason of compulsion bystatnteor
ordinance, or fear of being mulcted lu
large sums of money for personal in
juries, equipped all, or nearly all of
their care with these life-saving devices,
the company which enjoys what it as
eûmes to call the exclusive right to oper
ate cars within tbe corporate limits of the
city of Wilmington has utterly failed to
take this precaution so essential for the
persoual safety of our citizens, and, more
particularly, that of our children.
We frankly admit that the number of
deaths due to the trolley cars traversing
tbe alretts of our city is email when
compared with tho fatalitiea attend lug
their operation in other aud larger cities,
jet we must consider that congestion of
traffic, one of the most ordinary es
sentials of such fatalities. Is absent here.
But comparisons weigh for nothing whi n
the bald fact is before us that our citizens
are being killed, and that on one side of
tbe argument stands life and on the
other lurks death.
Had our cars been equipped with
fonder» it is probable—yes, certain—that
several graves which now exist in our
cemeteries would never have beeu dug.
It is useless for tho management of the
Wilmington City Railway Company to
make tbe assertion that the fenders of
to-day are nothing but experiments. It
has been clearly demonstrated that they
are Dot. Bach an assertion on Its part la
almpiy a makeshift.In consonance with the
several "teste ' which were made In this
olty in times gone by. Tbe simple truth
of tbe matter is that the oompany is too
•elfish to spend the money accessary to
procure the equipment. It is too busliy
engaged iu the work of extending its
lines to think of tbe public safety. The
blood of Innocent aud playful children
may dabble its traoks, but. a peck of sand
covers tbe stain of tbe guilt of negll
gene», and the race for the almighty
nickel la resumed with greater eagerness
than ever. The corporate mind has no
time to think of the grief-stricken home;
no pricks of conscience for the blood
wbleb stains the nickels whioh are
turned Into Its coffers by Its army of
agents. Its sole effort is to shift the
XMponeiblllty of the fatality from Itself
and its agent to the Inanimate form
which fell a prey to ocrpoiate cupidity,
and whose lips are by the seal of death
prevented from speaking In contradic
tion.
Thoughtfulness, playfnluei-s and way
ward ness are characteristics of child -
hood. So they were before tbe trolley
car came into existence, aud ao they will
be when that mode of conveyance has
been wholly supplanted by some other
and more improved method of rapid
transit. It la not just or sensible to
} expect a child at play to exc reite the
same i tre and discretion that a grown
parson should and weald, naturally,
exercise. Neither can we expect a
moterman to perform the impossibility
of stopping a car, going at full speed, iu
auch emergencies a» usually result in
fatalités But the pubiio does expect,
and it demands, that the company place
npon the fronts of its cars the very best
fenders that oan be found in the markets
of the world, in order that euoh child
may be picked up, tose.d Into the net
ting and restored to its parents, none
the worse for its adventure unless, per
chance, it should have received a few
Blight «cratches or bruises.
"The fender does not always do the
work for whioh It was designed," tbe
■tree:, railway apologiet will say. Ad
mitted. Neither does anything con
ceived by the human brain aud executed
by human baudä. But the operationa of
I he feudar in other places have clearly
demonstrated that it may he safely de
pended upou in about, eight caoes out of
ten, and, as the fender ts Improved, the
per ceutage is constantly increased.
There is no reason why our citizens
should not have the benefit of the 80
per cent, of safety. It is assuredly
preferable to the 100 per cent, of danger
which now besets them.
While eoniideiit that tbe Company bas
no chattel right to use electricity a» a
motive power we are not of those who
would deprive it of the power which it
has arrogated to itself The present
method is butter f ir the company u„d
btt :er for the people. Neither are we of
those who would abk from the company
a guarantie of absolute safety to tbe
public in the operation of lie system by
this cucharter.d power Allweaek, In
the name of tbe publtc, ts that it apply
tbors safeguards which advanced scienc
bas placed at its command. It 1» a re
I quest as reasonable and righteous as it
humane and modest.
The company enjoys the benefits of
great franchise aud the people get hut
liLtle in return beyond ilia convenience
of rapid transit, it was given a charter,
the freedom of our streets; the privilege
of Tunning by our doors and within
few feet of our pavements. the light
interfere with the ordluary vehicular
and pedestrian traffic; tbe power to tear
np one streets, to lay tracks aud to use
our costly county bridges. It has, in the
eyes of the Street and Hewer Depart
ment, made p lasting virtue of Its sin of
omission In failing to keep tbe pavlns
between and along Its tracks In proper
condition.and has taken advantage of that
department's acquiescence to Get up poles
along our sidewalks and to string wires
across and along our streets, for tbe
transmission of a power which is uot
designated in its charter. All this it gets
from t*e people who get bat little in re
turn.
It was chartered to serve the ends of
private enterprise, aud to cater to public
convenient»—for a consideration. It has
no Interest in monoinelaUsm, blmetalism
or silver. Its standard of vaine is the
nickel and it draws Its favorite metal
from the pookets of the people of Wil
mington.
It has no charter right to run down the
children of the people who made it a
body corporate and politic and who have
been the sole contributors to Its financial
■access.' It has no moral or legal right
to bite the hand' that feeds it. Tbe
directors and stockholders cannot with
good graoe, hide their faces behind the
corporate mask aud disclaim Individual
responsibility for the innocent blood that
has been spilled aud the happy homes
that have been made desolate. The
stain of tbe blood which has been shed
by reason of the fallnre to apply tbe
proper safeguards rests upon tbe bead of
every stockholder who countenanced the
neglect of tbe men to whom he delegated
his exeontlve powers.
The tlmo is coming and it is not far
distent, when a long-suffering and indig
nant people will compel the company to
pnt the fender between them and the
flange of the wheels
Judge Grubb's return to boalth and
home will bring pleasure to hundreds of
friends and acqualntauoes In this state
and elsewhere. There la no member of
Delaware's judiciary who keeps more In
touch with the people. He has never
allowed the tench to rob him of his
strong and genial personality and the
probabilities are that he never will.
The Worthy Poor Have I.o«t a Friend.
The deserving poor of Wilmington
have lost e good and 1 rue friend. Miss
Hannah W. Klobaidson was a woman
who bad done an Incalculable amonnt of
good by her exemplary life aud uuoaten
tatlous charity. Hhe had lived In this
community aluoe early ohlldheod ; had
grown up with onr people aud closely
observed those who surrounded her. As
a consequence she knew bow aud where
to dispense her bountiful charity to do
the most good. While strong rsligions
sentiment was one of the dominant
traits of her oharaoter, ,it was balanced
by good business capacity.
But little of her good work among the
poor of this city will ever be known. She
Was uot one to parade her charity before
the publlo That charity whioh Is
kuown only to the donor and beneficiary
was best lovod by her at all times.
If, during the long illness which
preceded ber death, at ripe old ago, she
went over, in her mind's sys the events
of her long and useful life, the retro
spect mutt bave been most pleasant to a
woman of her religions goodness and
refined sensibilities, merging as It did,
into a glorious prospect of .eternal
reward for herjkludly offices to Buffering
humanity.

CONTEMPORARY OPINION.
The Lew of Kajusllty.
From the New York World.
The law of equality Is the foundation
of the law of liberty. It is solely because
Tii* old
oien are "created equal" that they have
an "unalienable right" to liberty. If men
wore not created equal then on« man or
some men would have the right to rule
others, to dominate their wills, to con
trol their conduct, to direct their oou
scisne.es Every instand of the American
people denies the (xlstlace of euoh a
right anywhere on earth Our system of
government rests solely udoq the doc
trine of an absolutely equal humanity
Its first and fundamental proposition of
"self-evident'' truth la that "all men are
created equal," It is ae a ciroilary from
this that the Declaration asserts that
men are "endowed by the Creator with
certain unalienable rights," and that
"among these are life, liberty and the
pnrsuit of happiness." The entire history
of humanity's struggle for freedom
has a record of the assertion
of equal rights. The history Is not yet,
complete. The strnggle for liberty is
not yet done The actual as well
ae the theoretical equality of citizens Is
uot yet fully recognized in our practice
or completely guarded In our laws. All
that was once claimed for despots as
"divine right" Is still claimed for alien
majorities under the name of law. The
prejudices, the whims, the self interests
of rural legislators still aasert their right
to determiue what the citizens of New
York shall oat and drink on one day in
the week, and still make It a crime to
enpply customary aliment to freemen In
this olty on one day in seven'
The Excise law as now enforced is a
direct denial of the equal rights of citi
zena. It is therefore an offensive invasion
of liberty and au oppressive withholding
of the right of local eelf government.

Kuglund'a Doty In China.
From the London Times.
If the P«kln government mete out
condign punishment to the officials who
eonulved at, encouraged, or possibly In
stigated tha atrocities at Kucheng, It
may be unnecessary for this oouatry to
tako tho matter Into its own hands. But
no evatlva aud dilatory promises of
inquiry oouduoted on the ordinary Chinese
system can be rccepted by her Majesty's
government. We do not believe that tbe
foreign office is at all likely to be im
posed upon in this way. Tbe protests of
the Europeau aud tbe American residents
cannot ba passed over, nor is
it possible to elude responsibility
by raising a discussion about
tbe management of missions
and the point at which the Ideal of
ailsaionary duty shonld be limited by
considérations of practical expediency.
The missionary in China Is a foreigner,
residing there under precisely the same
conditions which secure the trading
community In their rights, aud, unless It
is shown that he has defied tbe law, he is
as much entitled to protection against
brutal vloieuce and rapine as if he dealt
in silk or tea Tbe retiou why missionaries
are more exposed than others to the at
tacks of mobs and the plots of uiaudralns
Is that they are tbe moat defenceless
of foreigners and the least inclined to
appeal for aid to the arm of the flesh
But, as la pointed ont bluntly and forci
blv by a correspondent sigulng himself
"X ," it la not so mach for the sake of
the missionaries who have been the
victims of outrage as of other forelgnere
that it la necessary to exact severe
penalties for the crimes committed at
Kucheng. If tbe Chinese ara allowed to
run away with the notion that they can
carry ont their polioy of terrorizing
foreigners aud driving them out of the
oonutry br slaughtering the weak and
the defenceless* far worse will follow.
No foreigner's life or property
will be safe In any part of China if the
British government falters in the
determination to show that It will not
allow the provisions of treaties, accepted
by the Chinese when far harsher terms
might have been imposed upon them, to
be reduced to a dead letter. We cannot
doubt that when the lime comes for the
Prime Mluister to apeak in the House of
Lord», be will be able to declare that the
rlghta of Britieb subjects, the interests
of British oominerce aud the dignity of
the British name In the Far East bave
been fully aafo guarded by the Foreign
Office.

IOWA INVINCIBLE.
The l'.attlc.lilp'» Armor Wilt Keep Out the
Biggest Projectiles.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 6.—Tho battleship
Iowa will keep out tho projectiles of thu
best 18 inch gun afloat. That was tho
conclusion drawn from ono of tho most
Important tests ever made at tho govern
ment proving grounds at Indian Head.
Since tlio equipment of modern battle
ships with heavy armor there has boon in
certain quarters a question as to whether
the framework of ships so armored could
resist tho crushing force of a blow from
ono of tho big guns, ovon though tho ar
mor itself was capable of keeping tho pro
jectile out. Hitherto all tests of armor
have boon made against tho unyielding
wooden butts. Wednesday tho United
States, for tho first timo slneo tho use of
modern guns and modern armor, began
experiments to determine tho actual strain
and injury to which a battleship would bo
subjected if struck by a projectile.
For that purpose a gido armor plate of
tho battleship Iowa, now building at the
Cramps yards in Philadelphia, was flttod
up—an actual reproduction of a section
of tho ship. It consisted of tho Inner and
under bottoms of five-eighths inch stool,
forming'compartments with lateral steel
bulkheads four foot apart. Outsido tho
outer bottom was tho skin of) five-eighths
steel, and between this and the 14 inch
armor pluto wore 10 inchos of sold oak
tlacking. Above was tho projection deck
aud below tho main dock, tho wholo being
backed above and below by oak of tho es
timated strength of the protection and
main decks. The plate itself was lC by
7 '/(' loot, 14 Inches thick at tho top and
sloping toward the bottom to a thickness
of 7 inches.
In addition to tho Important nature of
tho test, from tho standpoint of the strain
to which it subjected tho frame of tho ves
sel, it had othor features which made it
particularly interesting from a naval point
of view. Tho plato was what is known ns
tho Carnegie double forged plate—that is,
It was forged before and after carboniza
tion and was tho first servico pluto sub
jected to tho ballistic tests.
Tho importance of tho test was of such
Interest that Secretary Herbert himself
went down- the river to witness it, and
there wore more than tho usual number
of officers from tho ordnance and construc
tion bureaus. Tho shots were fired at 850
yards at rignt angles to tho plate to secure
the normal impact. Tho first was a 500
pound Carpenter projectilo from n 10 Inch
gun, driven by 140 pounds of Dupont's
brown prismatic powder. It struck tho
plate with a volocity of 1,483 feet per sec
ond, or with an nvorngo of 741,000 foot
pounds. Tho projoctlle was driven Into the
pluto about six inches, and not a single
Injury to tho backing was discovered after
a careful examination, save tho sheorlng
of nine bolts connecting tho protection
deck with tho armor. This was not con
sidered serious, and moreovor it was ex
plained that in a battleship this would ho
a metallic joint and not a bolted ono. Tho
other shots fulled to injure the plate, and
tho tost was considérai highly satisfactory.
