COMMANDS TO COUNCIL.
HP HERE seems U> be a little doubt concerning

overwhelming majority at the election on
The affirmative answers on the ques

Saturday.
tions. are in the nature of h command that must
be obeyed by the Mayor and City Council,
first question, according to the answer, requires
the Mayor and Council to "memorialize the Leg
islature to enact a law enabling the people of
1 he
.Wilmington to.govern themselves, delegating to
the Mayor and Council, subject to Initiative ami
Referendum, as full powers of government for
municipal purposes as arc vested in the governor
and legislature for State purposes."
It is mandatory upon the Mayor and Council
to present such a petition to the next Legisla
ture, but whether the General Assembly grants
the memorial is for that law making body alone
to decide. When they shall have sent such a
memorial to Dover the duty of the Mayor and
Council will have been fulfilled.
The answer to the second question is similar.
The Mayor and Council are compelled to mem
orialize the Legislature to provide a new system
of assessing property in this city and it is for
the Legislature to decide whether such a request
shall be granted.
The three remaining questions answered in the
affirmative refer to specific duties imposed upon
the Mayor and Council. They are required to
pass ordinances providing for the publication "of
minute and accurate detailed statements of the
receipts and expenditures of the city."
The Mayor and Council are required to pass
ordinances (which will compel "the bonding of as
sessor and collectors by trustworthy companies
and the prompt settlement of taxes of the ac
counts of the collectors and assessors."
Mayor and Council, according to the affirmative
answer to 61c fifth question, must adopt meas
ures requiring the street railway companies to
"make such repairs to the streets as arc pre
scribed in their franchises and to make such im
The
provements in their cars as will afford to the
public efficient and convenient service."
The two first questions concern the Legisla
ture and the,three last ones refer directly to the
Mayor and City Council. We cannot imagine
how there will be difficulty growing ont of the
referendum decision on any of these matters.
The course is clear for the Mayor and Council.
Those who »lid not vote on the referendum <lis
framthised themselves in considering these ques
tions, but as the matter now stands a large ma
jority of public sentiment as expressed at die
polls, is an autlu>ritative niamlate to the city
official* which they will undoubtedly obey with
otst equivocation or evasion.
NÈW IDEAS AND NEWCOMERS.
T HE MILFORD CHRONICLE notes the
Improved methods of agriculture that arc
being adopted by the young farmers of that
neighborhood. The abandonment of the "old
logy idcah" is favorably commented upon by
the Milford paper. It considers that, with im
proved methods, the future of the young far
mers ought to be brighter and better. This is
.undoubtedly the correct view.
This kind of weather, however, is not an op
portune time to hold out any rosy views for
Delaware farmers. The fruit growers had a
disastrous season last year and this year, be
cause of the weather, everything from the view
point of the farmers, appears to have "gone to
smash" We are wondering just where this
freakish weather will leave the agriculturists at
the end of the year. Certainly it is a most dis
couraging time for them. The interests of the
cities and towns of the state are bound up with
the welfare of the farmers. Everything depends
upon the weather.
A few years ago the fruit growers had a large
and profitable season and the hope was raised
that the turning point had been reached and that
Delaware again would take her place as one of
the foremost of the fruit producing states. On
that belief thousands of new fruit trees
planted in the lower counties,
adverse weather conditions there is much that
were
But even under
can be done. One of the means to improve
farming methods is to encourage strangers from*
other states to come and join with us.
And not only is this applicable to the farmers,
but to every other branch of industry. Hundreds
of people from a distance have removed their
homes to this city and to the Delaware farin
lands. They should all be made welcome and
expressions sometimes heard that a man is not
a native or is a newcomer or is a "carpet bag
ger" are the sheerest folly. Some of the best
and most progressive farmers and citizens of
Delaware have come here from other states.
They add to onr business and wealth. They
are a part of us and the cordial hand should be
extended to them. If any of these new people
are unworthy they arc soon discovered and taken
for their real value. But let it be understood
that Delaware always has a welcome for new
farmers and new business men and new manu
facturers. Our own progressive people, the ele
ment of which the Chronicle speaks, joined with
newcomers should make a combination that
would move Delaware forward many steps in the
path of right progress.
BIG FINES FOR CORPORATIONS.
(|!b com patties guilty of violating State and
Federal laws have been hit heavily in
I exas and in Illinois. They can pay normal tines
without much complaint, but the impositions of
tines that run into the millions will not be rel
ished even by concerns with overflowing treas
uries.
A jury in Texas has rendered a verdict against
the Waters-Fierce ( HI Company which carries
with it as a penalty, a fine of more than $1,500.
000. The permit of the company to do business
in the Stale may be cancelled should the verdict
be sustained by higher courts.
The Standard Oil Company must pay a heavy
financial penalty in Illinois,
lions secured there Standard Oil would lie
subject to a fine of $1 JO,000,000, but the slightest
penalty that may be imposed is a tine of more
than $t,joo,ooo.
The trusts that violate the law may learn to
understand that the government and some State
authorities arc in earnest in dealing with them.
It is, however, a question whether the mere fin
ing of the companies will successfully break up
the practices of which they have been guilty. To
meet the fines a monopoly will merely need to
increase the price of its product to consumers.
The people, therefore, through the government,
fine a corporation and then pay the penalty
themselves.
The Texas plan of preventing a corporation
guilty of violating the laws, from doiitg business
in the State, may bring the concerns to terms.
They do not wish to lose business.

There is still need fur subscriptions to the
Bayard memorial fund. The statue is a gift to

that is to be erected. We have far too few mem
orials of this kind in Delaware.

Problem* of the Panama Canal.
Editor The Evening «tournai.
To understand rightly the stupen
dous engineering task of connecting
the waters of the Atlantic and Paci
fic oceans by means of a canal across
the Isthmus of Darien it becomes
essary to know first of all the geo
graphical or compass bearings of the
Isthmus.

to southwest, that the city of Panama
on the Pacific side Is by longitude

southeast to northwest ki as nearly a
sharp angle.
Erroneous Impressions are apt to be
created by the usual practice of study
ing geography with the aid of the
dlnary flat maps which have the effect
of exaggerating the size of countries
in high latitudes and diminishing the
equatorial area*. It Is a revelation to
many a well Informed ;>«r»on to know
that South America Is nearly as large
«s North America.
For the study of the Panama Canal

Another point worth noticing In this
connection Is that the
nouncod diversion from the genera'
north and south trend of the Amer

which takes lateral direction east and

a line dropped due south from Ne*

When, upon his last disastrous voy

he little dreamed that at a point whief

must be reduced 1SS feet. T.*.ts for a

States Isthmian Canal Commission
The main diiTtculty In tlie previous at
tempts to cut a pathway for the
water* lies altogether in the province
of sanitation. Before yielding to the
popular clamor of "letting the dirt fly"
skin to the cry of "On to Richmond,"
during the civil war, the United
Siales Commission took in hand the
appalling death rate under French
management in comparison with other
places of six hundred to the thousand. '
something besides digging would have
to be done first. A vigorous campaign
was commenced at once at disease
breeding mosquitoes and then upwards
of two million square yards of brush
and grass were required to be cut and
burnt, more than one million yards of
swamp have been drained and filled in.
Upwards of one hundred and fifty
thousand feet of ditch have been filled
In and throe million cubic feet of house
area have been fumigated, and this la I
only a •'beginning."
In every respect the cities of Colon
and Panama were found to be worse
for the spread of yellow fever than was
Havana previous to the American oc
cupation. There are three factors en
tering into the construction of the
canal which are dominated by a fourth.
The first three are time, excavation
and transportation, and above these
rises the dominant question of efficient
labor. The money needed for the un
dertaking Is assured bv the richest
nation the world ever saw. but money
reaches its limit in making labor ef
fit-lent. The negro of the south and
the coolie from the Orient are subject
to their environment should It be a
healthy one well and good If unhealthy
the work suffers, although millions are
behind It. The French and all the
succeeding companies found It so, that
the surest way to build the canal was
to make the Zone as healthy as the
places as the laborers came from, and
in the Immensity of this task lies the
true solution of the waters-meet be
tween the Atlantic and Pacific oceans
across the Isthmus of Darien.
