T O-NIGHT, at tlie Grand Opera House, "The Rivals," Sheridan's celebrated comedy, is the attraction, and the star players, Joseph and William W. Jefferson, sons of the late Joseph Jefferson, of lamented memory. The play and players deserve, from all the press accounts, a good house. "The Rivals" has stood the plagues of time, which, without favor, play sportively with the drama and dramatists. "The Rivals", as a comedy, has stood alone for years, and it is to-day far above many of the lat ter-day productions. Another play that deserves especial mentjon is that o f "The Road to Yesterday." which appears Thursday night. This drama tells a story out of the ordinary, and, judging from the poems in spired by Miss Dupree's acting, which arc pub lished in pamphlet form, this play must have des tiny behind it. If Resident Manager Johnson, or his superiors, wish good attendance at their play house, the people will respond, but the shows presented must be good. Wilmington has out grown the sobriquet of a "jay town," and the people here know a good play, good players and everything else about the drama, and the sooner Messrs. Nixon & Zimmerman come to realize this and respect the feelings of the theatregoers, the sooner will support be given. MONEY OR SPORT? A N ENDOWMENT of a million or so on condition that athletic sports he aban doned, is the tempting prize dangled before the trustees of Swarthmore College. That rich Philadelphia Friend could not reconcile her con viciions with the blare and excitement that ac companies intercollegiate athletic contests. Her conditional gift, which would heavily endow the college and lift it to a higher rank than it now enjoys, for the first time puts the question of athletics fairly up to the trustees of the institu tion. No doubt many Friends will support the ideas of Miss Jeanes and will hope that the trustees accept her conditions. These have always looked askance at the prominence that sports as well as students' clubs and organizations have as sumed in the life of the once quiet institution in Delaware county. But there is a younger element that has been dominant in Swarthmore affairs. This clement also comprises wealthy young Friends, who have contributed largely to the support of the college, and particularly to the advancement of its ath letic interests. As a consequence of their activ ity Swarthmore has obtained a higher rank in athletic circles, especially in football, than ap peared natural for its size and athletic The question of the anti-athletic spirit, embodied in the conditional gift of Miss Jeanes and the ath letic sport, will be put to the test. Already the president of the trustees of the institution inti mates that the offer will be rejected ; that Swarfh more will prefer football to millions that might be expended to advance the cause of real educa tion. This will doubtless surprise the staid old Friends who have considered thqt the educa tional part of a college is supreme and they will he unable to reconcile themselves to a new order which places the supremacy in sports. The yellow rich of New York arc reported to be flocking to the standard of Governor Hughes, in the belief that he can make the strongest light against President Roosevelt, whom they detest. And yet there is no reason why they should sup port Hughes. Hughes has a mind of his own, but he is as pronounced in favor of the enforcement of the law as either Roosevelt or Taft could be resources. T* 16 pub,ic servicc corporations have the city of •Williamsport, Pa., by the throat. For all the privileges they enjoy the companies pav into the municipal treasury only about $ 3,000 a year m taxes and license fees. In Scranton the traction companies have finally agreed to pay $10,_ year to the city, arid in Harrisburg they $16,000 annually. ,000 a I pay "Old Penn," the University of Pennsylvania, opens with 4,000 students, a small army of young men, and out of that number the Red and Blue should be able to get a good football elev en. Judging from the conflict over the water sup ply of Wilmington, the only safe thing for the citizen to do is jto boil the water if he is forced to use the villainous stuff that is now pumped through the city pipes, or else secure water from Springs, or purchase it from the various panics that sell water. com What I Know About Delaware Politics and Other Things By Washington Hastings SIXTEENTH ARTICLE. General Grant was known to the country at that time Just as many other officers were known, as a western man whom the war had brought into prominence and command ns a general officer, but nobody, In this sec tion at least, knew much else about him or was par ticularly interested In him. But now his name was upon everybody's tips and the newspapers throughout the North teemed with his praise; and the answer to the question as to who he was and what he was, soon came from hla home In the West. It transpired that when a lad of about seventeen, his father had Informed him that he had procured for him an appointment as cadet at the Military Academy at West Point, and that the lad promptly informed his father that he wouldn't go! But his father quietly Informed film that he guessed he would Hls career at the Academy and graduation were not spoken Of as being In any way remarkable, nor was his subsequent career in the army, except that ho was a bravo and valuable officer during the Mexican war; soon after which he resigned from the army and went l into business with his father at Galena, III., where the breaking out of "the war'' found him. After "Henry" and ''Donolson.'' the people of this country thought they had found him too, after their long and weary search for a leader. md he went. Before Grunt, the answer to the. demand of the coun try for tangible results of the months of fighting had been "more men!" And when the men were furnished und the demand impatiently renewed, the answer was again ''more men!" Old "Hosea Blglow" shook his stick In the direction of Washington from up at "Jaalam" and voiced the sentiment of the people when he thundered In the columns of "The Atlantic" "More men? More man! If* There we fail! Weak things Grow weaker ylt by length'nln'l Wut use o' addin' to the tall When It's the head's In need O' strength'nln' ", ' But when "Pittsburg Landing," and "Shiloh" and "Corinth" and "Vicksburg" and the rest, followed quick ly after the victories of "Henry" and ''Donolson," and later, the rescue of the almost defeated army at "Chat tanooga" and Chickamauga," the people of this country hud full confidence that in the silent, reserved, gentle, generous soldier, from Galena, the right man to lead the armies to victory had been found; and all of the criti cism and carping, and fault-finding and falsehood around the War Department at Washington and else where. prompted as all believe, then an« now, by "greon vlsaged envy," never shook that confidence for one minute until the end was reached at Appomattox! Amid the grandeur and magnificence of the military operations of the West and Southwest, the Army of the Potomac was almost loat sight of by our people here In Delaware, although almost all, if not quite all. of our "soldier boys" were In that splendid organization. But, as events transpired and things progressed—and they progressed rapidly now—we became again mord Interested and absorbed In operations nearer home. When General Lee again crossed the Potomac and In vaded Maryland and Pennsylvania that Interest became Intense; and all eyes wore turned towards tho move ments of the Confederate army. . The battle of "Gettys burg" was approaching with rapid strides. We did not know it by that name then but all felt sure that a frightful clash of arms was close at hand and the heart of many a wife and mother in this community trembled with anxiety and fear at tho prospect. It came at Gettysburg and many Delaware soldiers were In it. I will not attempt to describe It for I was not there; war was not the particular variety of patriotism that attracted me at that time, and, for another reason, it has often been better described than I could possibly do it if I had been there. The Delaware soldiers in that great battle acquitted themselves nobly from all ac counts, and It would seem to be Invidious to particular ize In respect of any one of them. But there was one young man in that fight who performed an act of such conspicuous bravery that I do not deem It amiss to single him out and mention It here without any In tention of detracting from the credit of others, where all did so well. He was a captain of the First Regiment of Delaware Volunteers, detached from his regiment and serving on the staff of one of the general officers. During the thickest of the fight on the memorable Second of July, in the front line of battle, the general upon staff this Delaware captain was serving received an order from his superior officer to send word to the commander of some troops which were holding a barn, to take, and hold at all hazards, a house held by Con federate troops. The distance to be traversed to de liver this order to the commander In the barn was about seven hundred yards, and the messenger had to pass within sixty yards of the house. Evidently the man who carried that dispatch would also carry his life In his hand along with him. A volunteer for the peri lous undertaking wa* called for and our Delaware boy Immediately volunteered. Stretched lengthwise on hla horso he rode the distance, delivered hla despatch and rode back to hla post amid a hall of Confederate bullets, unscathed. He was complimented on whose Die spot I > v Oeneral Hancock who happened to bo passing, and now wears the "Congressional Medal of Honor" which is bestowed only for acts of distinguished, gallantry lie is a fellow-townsman of us all to-day, prominent in the counclls'of the Democrat lu party, and his name is James Parke Postles! in battle. But I must hasten to the conclusion of my "war records." As I have remarked, things now progressed swiftly: events of a most thrilling nature, followed each other with great rapidity. After hie victories at Vleks-i burg and Missionary Ridge and the retreat of Hood's Army Southward, General Grant was called to Wash ington and the command of all the armies of the United States was placed absolutely in his hands; and the coun try thought It saw "the beginning of the end." But It took two long and weary years of desperate fighting and fearful carnage, before that end was reached. At last, however, it was reached, and tho scene at Appo mattox when Grant, with the triumphant Army of the Potomac met Lee with his battered and bruised, but still brave Army of Northern Virginia, where the one sur rendered his army to the other, and that other received that surrender with all the gentleness und consideration of his noble nature, and instead of allowing a gun of triumph to be tired or a cheer of victory to be raised, instead of marching at the head of his victorious army through tho streets of the vanquished und captured capital pf the Confederacy, General Grant bade General Lee an almost affectionate farewell and went quietly off the same night to visit his boys at school at Bur lington. New Jersey, those two men showed to the whole world the kind of stuff that American men are made of! • • • "The cruel wnr was over. indeed: and the people of the whole country Joined In spirit 1» not In voice, in the triumphant refrain of that distinguished Statesman and most delightful poet James Russell Lowell, , "Oh strange New World that yet was never young. Whose youth from Ihee by griping need was wrung, Brown foundling of the woods, whose baby bed Was prowled round by the Indian's crackling tread. And who grew'st strong through shifts and wants and pains. Nursed by stern men with empires in their brains, Who saw In vision their young Ishmael strain With each hard hand a vassal ocean's name. Thou, skilled by Freedom and by great events. To pitch new States as Old World men pitch tents, Thou, taught by Fate to know Jehovah's plan. That man's devices can't unmake a man. And whose free latch-string never was drawn In, the poorest child of Adam's kin,— The grave's not dug where ruthless hands shall lay In tearful haste thy murdered corpse away!" (To be continued.)

WOMEN AND FIZZ SHOCKED PASTOR Another Chicago Divine Goes Scouting and Denounces Society Drinkers CHICAGO, Oct. 3.—The crusade against drinking by women gained impetus to-day isters Joined the Rev. F. E. Hopkins and gave their experience in tabbing cocktails drunk by women in public places. The Rev. F. G. Smith made a circuit of the hotels and cafes and gave his analysis thus: "I noticed that apparently 'three classes of women drink—those who drink with their husbands, those who drink for the effects of the liquor and girls who drink evidently because they think drinking Is the first step In high life. "At the close of the klrmess, that famous charity'affair, several cases of champagne remained unsold. It was disposed of by the younger society leaders drinking two quarts apisce, then tossing tt all over the floor and throwing It down the neck, across the shoulders and over the beautiful gowns of the women present. Not one bottle was allowed to remain uncorked while there was a sober woman left in tha crowd. "Following another dance a year ago, given by a woman whose name Is fre quently mentioned as the future leader of society, the Florodora sextet was * engaged to sing and dance. Afterward one of the show girls said: "Talk about your Tenderloin carousals, that affair was the fiercest any of us had over seen. Most of the women were all In by the time we arrived. They were lying around on the couches and stairs with their clothes more off than on, all the time shrieking at the top ot their voices or talking in hoarse, thick whispers. Once In a while they would rouse up to tell a shady story, throw something at each other or play^some fool game, although no one there'could stand on her feet.' " '* Tyson Plays ih Luek. . A. H.
