A Grievous Loas.
James T. Mulllu was one of Wilming
ton's most honored and respected citizens
As a badness man be was noted for
honesty and fair dealing, and bis word
went farther than the paper of many
another man In trade circles,
ness ability was as marked as bis integ
rlty, and this happy combination of
characteristics served to make his mer
cantile career wonderfully successful.
Perstaally Mr. Mallln was oae of the
most charming men In tha community.
* He was'of retiring disposition so far si
the general public wss concerned, bat
possessed of s Urge circle of
friends who recognized and appro
elated his warmnesa of heart gen
erosity of spirit, refinement of manner,
honesty of parpo e, and the many other
excellent qualities which he possessed.
Business and social circles of Wil
mington, have, by bis death, sustained a
grievous loss.
Andrew G. Wilson Is a worthy one

member cf the Board of Pilot Commis
sioners. Governor Watson Is to be con

Advice to tho Mourchera.
The use. of bicycles has become so
general la Wilmington that the Polies
Commission has deemed it expedient to
rigidly enforce the ordinances against
reckless riding on the streets of Wil
mington. To eueure the proper enforce
ment of these ordinances It has supplied
certain of its officers wltb wheels, and
there la little doubt tbit this bicycle
corps will serve to protect pedestrians
from tbe "sooi chers" who now traverse
the streets, at all hoars of the day and
late Into tbe night, at breakneck speed
regardless of tbe dangers to which they
expose themselves and those who are on
foot.
Local wheelmen can avoid considerable
trouble by keeping within tbs bounds of
the law. Tha authorities have been Indul.
gent with them and the abuse of that In
dulgence has ltd to the Ineiitutiou of tbe
bicycle corps of t ffioers. Now that they
see that the Police Commissioners are
determined to break up a predict which
has beooma a tunuaos to public safety
■ ><t * tb*y should acquiesce gracefully and
Save themselves ice humiliation of being
taken before the Municipal Cmrt and
fined.
While we are not in accord with tbe
political convictions of W. 0. H Col
OJi.quokotin, secretary of the Heai.b Depart- ■
went, simple justice constrains ns to ray
that he has made an excellent public
servant and done much to advance the
efficiency.of the department While a
party man In every sense of the word,
},i -, Mr. Colqnohouu hqs never permitted his
politics to Icfluenoa him in the discharge
of his official functions. We trust that
the Democratic members of the B>ard of
Health will name a successor who will
work as oonscieutiously and auldaonsly
lu behalf cf the pnhllo Interest*
Folly Ran« Had,
As a bull takes offence at auv thing red.
r cent protests to tbe Naval Department
show that the A. P. A goes Into con
vulsions over everything green. These
proteets were at first looked upon as a
joke, but when It went so far as to hint
at tbe Impeachment of tbe Secretary of
tbe Navy unless he would abolish tbe
greenish col.r of our naval vessels, it
became apparent that tbe A. P. A. was
really In earnest in Its protestations. This
goes to show that tbe A P A. Is con
trolled. to a very great extent, at least,
by tbe sentiment existing lu Ireland
among tbe Orangemen In opposition to
tbe Catholics In that emntry. Rial
Americans have no hatred to the color
of green anymore than to auy otbsr
color, and it Is evident that such a
prejudice had Its rise in the b easts of
disgruntled Itisbmeu [and Americans who
bate anything that savors of Catholicism.
This reminds us of an Inoidant which
secured lo-oue of our Scale Legislatures
not very long ago. Tbe farmers were
trying to get a bill patsad la opposition
to oleomargarine, and they Insisted that
this material should no* be colored in
Imitation of butter. The matter was
discussed at great length, aud the Houae
became utterly tired of It These who
favored tbe Imitation butter, declared
that It should be colored, aud one iu cou
- eluding hid argument said that yellow
waa the only color that could be used . A
bright youug Irish legislator, who like
many others was out of patience wltb
tbe long diseusiloo, rose to his (feet and
said: "Why not color it greet t '
Tbe comicality of this suggestion ecu
vulsad tbe House with laughter aud
ended tbe discussion. Perhaps it would
never have coded If there had been an A.
P. A. present.
To return to onr subject. It Is not
likely that anyone outside of an A P. A.
ever snppoetd that the greenish oast
given to onr ships bad anything to do
wltb Ireland or Irishmen. This shade
was selected because It lathe color of
■afety, resembling the color of tbe sea,
and it is us*d for torpedo boats iu
particular so that their movements can
be followed as little as possible by the
enemy. Red might please the A P A.
as being an impetuous color and sug
gesting the heat of patriotism, bat wltb
i
Its use strategic mo »emeu ts would be
Impossible,
though very gaudy, would be out of
place for the same reaeoa. Ae to yellow,
that would ne»er meet the,approval of the
A P. A., for It la the color of the papal
lUg. la fact there Is no color that would
not ba open to criticism, and none which
has the advantages of the tint now need
by the Naval Department.
In view of these facts and nolwlfh
standing the opposition of the A P. A
It Is probable that the green tint of our
war ships will continue to be need Is
It probable that an organization which
gives Itself away to such foolish protests
as this is ever likely to have a controll
ing interest In a country like oursf A
party founded on race and religions pre

where all races are equal and every man

CONTEMPORARY OPINION.

Horace Greeley Knowles, as lawyers

for assisting City Solicitor Harman
In tke Wilkins damage salt against the

ability rc quires a fair fee, because the
lawyer can command it Damage salts

pat up an excellent fight and sueaecdad

Tho Spring Elections.
From the New York Evening Post.
Tbe town elections foreshadow this un
mlatakably, and tbe Republicans will ba
wise to recognize the fact and conduct
themselves accordingly. They eauuot
afford to take unnecessary chances, like
putting up McKinley for thejrjucdldate
on an unsound money platform, and with
a record which will not atvnd 'he wear

doubtful state for them to-day; It would
be a sure Democratic state wltb UcKIn

other side. Oa tils pdut there (a no

by adopting « ooinpromi-o framed by Sen
ator Cockrell of Missouri,
bill as It. came from tho house provided
that "No money herein approplrated shall

This provision is stricken out by the
Cockrell amendment ns adopted, and It Is
declared to lie the settled policy of the gov
ernment to make no appropriations for
sectarian schools after July 1, 1898, thus
giving two years for the abandonment of
sectarian schools instead of an Imnicdlato
abandonment,
adopted by the decisive vote of 38 to 24.
