Y HIS appointment of T. Allen I lilies, of
this city. Henry Ridgcly of Dover, and the
Hon. Philip L. Cannon, of ,Bri<lgeville. to com
plete the commission that is to consider the re
of the taxation system of the State, Gov
ernor Lea has strengthened that body.

not promise that he will be of great service to the
commission. Representative Conwcll, one of the
most intelligent members of the House, should
have been appointed on that commission, as no
one at the sessions at Dover was better equipped
for such duties than this Kent county member.
The appointees of the Governor are well
known throughout the State. Mr. Hillcs is an
admirable selection. He may be expected to look
after the interests of the Wilmipgton manufac
turers, and at the same time his services and gen
eral knowledge will he of great benefit to the
commission. It was highly important that our
manufacturers should have a potent voice iu the
deliberations of the commission. ' 1 'hcy arc heavy
and usually uncomplaining taxpayers. They
know full well that any injustice in taxation
methods, any avoidance by the public service cor
porations of a payment of a fair share of taxes
results in a heavier taxation of the property of
the manufacturing concerns as well as of the
house owners and holders of other real estate.
Mr. Rtdgely is one of the ablest lawyers of the
State, a learned than, who has. so far as we know,
no corporation affiliations that would give him a

Mr. Cannon is one of the best equipped men in

Governor with much ability and dignity. While
he is a canner himself, he is in close touch with
: the farming interests, and should he not he a use
, fnl and just çomivLsjopçr.hc will belie his record.
There is, however, a criticism of the composi
tion of the commission. The farming interests
f the State and the granger element have been
practically ignored. They arc not really repre
sented in the legislative end of it, and the Gov
ernor perhaps overlooked the fact that the grant
gers, or, at least, the distinctively farming ele
ment, should have been well represented on the
commission. Outside of Wilmington, Delaware
is an agricultural community. The farmers arc
heavy taxpayers. They should have adequate
representation on such an important body as that
of the commission which is confronted by one of
the most difficult problems of government—
that of taxation.
The farmers, the State grangers, and the sub
ordinate granges, will not, however, keep in the
background during the discussion of new taxation
The laboring class of the community, who are
heavy, though often indirect taxpayers, arc also
not directly represented, although Mr. I'aradee
will be accredited to them.
The commission is not wèll balanced, but it has
enough strong men on it to rftake the effort to se
cure a just and fair plan of State taxation worth

The brewery workers of St. Louis arc on a

* I ^ H E New York Legislature has plunged into |
^ a considération of the regulation of the I
public service corporations of that State iu com
pliance with a demand for better service and a
relief from extortionate charges. The hill before
the New York lawmakers provides for the ap
pointment of a commission that will have ample
authority to enforce its demands and compel the
companiçs to live up to their agreements with
püblic officials. It is proposed, however, to
amend the measure and provide for a "broader
court review." In other words, after a decision
by the commission shall have been made by an
appeal to the courts, indefinite delay can be se
cured by the objecting corporations. Then there
would be a chance to compromise and the defend
ant companies would be permitted to settle for a
smaller amount than they really owed the State
or the municipality.
There is also a demand that the proposed com
mission shall have authority to prevent the cor
porations from watering their stock and forbid
the issuing of stock except for a real money value.
Ami this is where the troubles of such companies
start. The popularity of public service corpora
tion stock as an investment because of the mo
nopolistic franchises that they enjoy, has enabled
high financiers to manipulate them and issue
stocks and bonds for an almost unlimited amount
of water—nothing tangible.
Then, when such campanies seek to earn suffi
cieivt to keep up interest charges on these ficti
tious values, crippled service follows and the pub
lia bears the brunt. In smaller communities the
companies often become involved in financial
difficulties. ( )f the truth of this we have had
several instances here in Delaware. Railways
that would pay a safe and reasonable interest and
be a good investment, arc unable to do so simply
because they try to earn on a swelled capital and
bond issue, whereas on a normal basis of capitali
zation their income would be enough to meet all
Some of the lower country Democratic papers

ture, throw the blame entirely on the Kepuhli
Thc Republicans have to stand their share
of it. hut Democratic members showed no incli
nation to [terve the State well. When the affairs
of special interests are considered at Dover, how
ever, party lines arc dropped, and the voice of the
oligarchy is potent. There is nothing in the
records of three-fourths of the Democratic mem
bers of the Legislature of which the party could
feel proud. No one knows this belter than those
who try to fasten all the condemnatioir for the
legislative shortcomings upon the majority party.
A hill that met over whelming.defeat hefure the
Massachusetts Legislature provided that the
larger share of the money for licenses for the sale
of liquor -should go into the Stale treasury in
stead of being received by the towns and cit'cs
where the licenses arc granted. 'The opponents
of th bill argued that as the towns were compelled
to hear the burdens of the administration of the
license laws, they should receive the revenue. An
exactly opposite condition exists here, where all
the license money from this city and from the
towns goes into the State'treasury. Thus Wil
mington is drained of a large revenue and the
Legislature likewise refuses us permission to tax
other sources of wealth as we see fit.
Wealth docs not always bring happiness, and
it is powerless to restore health. William A.

While the panic mongers of \\ all street arc en

quarters tell a different story. l*or instance, the

Help the Conductors.
Editor Tho Evening Journal.
Now Is ihe time of the year when
the conductors on the street cars come
In for their share of hard knocks at I
the hands of the people who ride about
town. When the summer cars are plac- I
ed In service the conductors have to I
swing along the footboards, at the risk I
of being thrown off, all day long, and i
when they happen to do something to
offend a passenger, although it is not
done intenUonally. the abuse heaped
upon these men is something great.
Few: passengers have any respect for
Ihe conductors who labor so hard for
their weekly wage. They apparent y
do not recognise the fact that these
men, who have many troubles to con
tend with, and that, on the whole, they
are exceedingly courteous and kind
In their treatment of passengers, evert
to those that have a disposition to call
them all kinds of names.
The people should endeavor to light
en the burdens of these men as much
as possible without putting trouble in
thl-lr «ay. Our conductors are more
polite than those In any other city In
this country, and this fact has been
commented upon by people who have
visited us. They wfl do more for the
éomfort of passengers than will the
conductors In other cities, but the peo
ple here seem not to appreciate this.
We should give some thought to the
positions of these men. and If we did
no I feel that we would he a little more
lenient In our treatment of them.

The Legislature adjourned on Mon

The Legislature deserves credit
for having accomplished more

spirit, which has made some of
recent Legislatures n by-word and
reproach to the State, was apparent.
It did not dominate tho Logis ature
and was confined to a fe»* members
of the Legislature, who allowed them
selves to be used by Alice and 1-ay

Senate. These few members only suc
