SENATOR du PONT WINS ONCE MURK.
NITED Slates Senator Henry A. duPont'» heroic
fight in Congress and out ot Congress for Jus
tice for Ralph I. Sasse, of this city, and three other
cadets who were expelled from the West Point
Military Academy because they dran* a little
blackberry wine when out ou a hike, has advanced
another step. The courtmartlal convened to retry
them has recommended that they be reinstated at a
time agreeable to Secretary of War Garrison und that
they be given their original standing In their
classes. U 1» not thought that the Secretary of War
will delay long in ordering thel r reinstatement that
the act of Injustice done the young men mny be rec
tified as completely as possible.
The expulsion of the cadets aroused nution-wldc In
terest and resentment. It was regarded by most per
sons as rank injustice that four promising young men
should be driven from the academy In disgrace »nd
their military future destroyed simply because they
bad indulged in a little wine. If they hud gotten
drunk and so demeaned themselves in public as to
disgrace the service, the act of expulsion perhaps
would not have excited the public Interest and ad
verse comment that It did. There was, however,
nothing of that sort. The extreme penalty was In
flicted upon them for merely indulging in a small
drink of the wine In an out-of-thc way place. In fact,
the public knew nothing about it and would have
known nothing about it hud it not been for u desire
of certain men connected with tho academy to punish
the cadets severely. It was not until ti e first court
martial, being misled as to Its discretionary power
In the matter, had made a finding which led to the ex
pulsion of the four defendants that" those who were
so eago r to punish them realized, that they had over
reached and made national martyrs of the lads. Sen
ator duPont and others took up the fight to have tho
great wrong righted. Step by step the struggle pro
U
ceeded. Obstacle after obstacle was surmounted.
And now. after many months of fighting the work of
tho first court-martial hqs been upset and It only re
mains for the Secretary of War to say the final word
that will put the four beneficiaries of Senator dul'ont's
zealous and generous efforts back !n the ranl.j * the
finest body of military cadets In the world.
NEEDED— A HOSPITAL SITE.
'T'HBRE is an opportunity now for some wealthy
Delawarean to distinguish himself by giving a
site for the proposed new Physicians' a nd Surgeons'
Hospital, which has become so popular In tho public
mind that It baa outgrown Its present building at
Eighth and Adams streets. The board ot managers,
as a result ot Us campaign for funds last Fall, has
in hand enough money to Justify It in going ahead
■with the new building, but it hasn't enough to war
rant it in purchasing a site and proceeding with the
construction work.
Since the hospital was founded it and the dispensary
attached to it have given relief in thousands of cases.
It also msy be said In Us behalf that it has done much
charity work in the clinic, the wards and the dis
pensary. When an institution of that sort has placed
itself in such a position that nothing stands between
it and new buildings except a suitable site, surely
there must be some liberal-hearted man or woman In
Delaware who will provide the ground needed so the
construction work may go on.
A TIMELY ADDRESS.
f^^ITH Wilmington on the eve of establishing a
▼w civic centre and with several other public or
semi-public improvements of magnitude in contem
plation, the visit of Dr. Werner Hegemann, secretary
of the committee for the Architectural Development
of Greater Berlin and general secretary of the City
Planning Exhibitions of Berlin and Dusseldorf, Ger
many, Is timely. He will deliver an address tomorrow
evening in the Assembly Hall, duPont Building, under
the auspices of the Chamber of Commerce. No doubt
those who hear o r read his address will obtain much
valuable information for future
quasi-public work.
Dr. Hegemunn, as a city planning expert, has' an
in.arnationai reputation,
that he has come to America to cooperate with city of
ficials and public-spirited citizens in the promotion of
planning projects, the demand upon his time while
here will be great and our Chamber of Commerce
fortunate in inducing him to make one of his addresses

THE S \ FtTV-FÎRST PLEDGE.
L ha-.<■ here lu Wilmington thousands of men and
«omen who are engaged in callings In which
the element of danger exista to a greater or lesser
degree. In the discussion of accidents and the trial
of tort cases wo bear much said about negligence
and contributory negligence as being the underlying
causes of such accidents and litigations. Within the
last week a prominent "allroad officiai who has much
to do with tort claims said to us that nine-tenths of
the accidents in the transportation and industrial
fields arc due to carelessness and an utter or partial
disregard or violation of the rules and regulations
making fo r human safety.
The working men and women in Wilmington have
it within their power to put an end to much of tho
physical suffering and death In the local Held by co
operating with employers In the so-called safety-first
movement that now Is attracting so much attention
in all sections of the United States. Such co-opera
tion, which would be both sensible and natural, not
only would stand between wage-earner» and danger
and death, but also protect the pockets of both em
ployers and employes, and. In the aggregate, result in
the saving of large amounts of money.
In a technical magazine we find the following pledge
which, wc think, should be read carefully and taken
by every man and women In Wilmington who 's en
gaged In a pursuit that contains the element of per
sonal hazard :
w
1. as a laborer, will hole fast to all rules promul
gated for my safety.
I will never take a chance when a safe way will
prevent an accident.
I pledge myself Ip so far as accidents arc concerned,
to be a protectionist.
I will always do all 1 can to stop the loss of life and
to prevent accidents.
I. In the Interest of myself and fellows, will culti
vate safety habits.
1 will never work about machinery until I advise
myself It I safe.
I will never Impoverish my family or reduce my
earning capacity by being tuneless.
1 wlil not take a chance at the risk of my life or
Injury to my body.
1 will always protect myself where pieces of metal
are liable to fly and strike my eyes by wearing gog
gles.
I will always defend the principles of safety first.
I believe It Is better to be careful than careless.
1 will always assist a fellow laborer In advising him
to be careful.
I wil preach to my .'ellows care, then our ranks «'ill
not he filled by the careless.
I will care for my family by bring more careful.
I will hold safety thoughts paramount to all others.
I will never do a careless net which is liable to
cause an Injury.
I will be In the safety movement for the preserva
tion of life, as much so as protecting my country or
family.
I will be first In the safety army, fighting to drive
the careless from its ranks.
ff all tho wage-ei.rncrs in Wilmington would taka
that pledge and live up to it, the accident wards in
our hospitals practically would be put out of business.
Would it not be well for the employers of labor aud
the unions to have copies of that pledge printed and
circulated for signers to the end that the safety-first
movement may be brought home to each man and wo
man engaged in a calling which embraces the ele
ment op hazard?
PRIVATE FORTUNES AM» CONFISCATION.
V ICE-PRESIDENT MARSHALL'S amplification of
the speech he delivered before tho National
Democratic Club In New York City recently, is even
worse than the speech itself. Such a confiscation of
private fortunes as he hints al never would be tol
erated in this or any other constitutionally-governed
country. Men do not amass fortunes to have them
seized by the State when they are dead and burled.
They do It, as a rule, to , usure to themselves the com
forts and luxuries while they aro living and to their
families financial independence after the builders of
the fortunes are dead and gone. For laws to be
enacted providing, as Vice-President Marshall says,
that government shall seize everything In excess
of $100,000 belonging to a personal estate would be to
penalize business energy, sagacity and thrift, to
stifle comraeroial and Industrial development, and. In
cidentally, strike a blow B t labor, which is so largely
dependent upon commercial and industrial enter
prises which have been conceived and built up by
men of great wealth, or who have gained great wealth
by conceiving and building them up. Many large for
tunes have been made Just an honestly as many small
fortunes have been accumulated. It would be the
height of Injustice to penalize a man who seizes and
Improves his opportunities and confiscate his estate
for the benefit of those who are too blind to see op
portunities or too indifferent or lazy to seize them
when they see them.
"Men of Judgment have expressed to me the opin
ion that If a vote were taken on a proposition to make
all estates over the sum of $100,000 revert to the
State upon the death of the owner—the $100,000 be
ing exempted—it would be carried 2 to 1," Mr. Mar
shall said.
In other words array the poor against the rl<*h at
the polls, with the poor probably outnumbering tho
rich ten to one. Under such conditions why should
the vote bo only 2 to 1 In favor of such a plan of con
fiscation ?
It Is all right for our Vice-President to urge thu
injection of conscience into big business as an anti
dote for ills complained of, but when it comes to sug
gesting that government limit private fortunes and
pursue a system of confiscation, he is treading upon
dangerous ground and giving encouragement to class
feeling and prejudice that should have no place in a
republic like ours, where so many large private for
tunes have been built up by intelligence, industry aud
thrift, and where there have been so many human fail
ures In life simply because those who failed lacked
or failed to utilize the essential qualities which make
fo r success.
The Pennsylvania railroad has donc a wonderfully
sensible thing in establishing a rule which excludes
from its dining car a tid restaurant service all per
sons who have even a tendency toward communica
ble disease. Nor is it to be merely a transitory thing.

NEW NEWS OF YESTERDAY
Two Instances of Mysterious
Disappearance Recalled
By Holland.
"I remember chatting with oue of the
Harper Brothers, who were the
originators of the great publishing
house known by the name of Harper
& Brothers, I should say about flit
year 1886 or 1887," said the late Chief
Justice Noah Davis, of the New York
Supreme Court, to me u few year»
"I do not now remmber whlcti
ago.
one of the brothers It was. but I do
know he was one of the sons of thf>
founders of the house. I asked him
if there was ever any trace of S. S.
Conanl, whom I knew as tho man
aging editor of Harper's Weekly.
"Mr. Harper told me that Mr. Con
nuts dlsappeataucc was as complete
as though he had fallen tin Witnessed
Into a bottomless pit. He left his
r.iuse one morning expecting to go to
the office. Ho was never heard from
nor could the slightest trace of him
be discovered even by tho most as
siduous police work.
"I remember saying to Mr. Harpet
that the case was similar In the dis
appearance feature of It to that ol
John Lansing, who for years was
chancellor of New A'ork Stale, and
one of Its great, chancellors.
"I said to Mr, Harper that at one
time I had a chut with Thurlow
Weed, shortly after Ills return from
the mission to Europe, to which 1 <
was appointed by President Lincoln
in the fall of 1861. In the course oi
this conversation something was said
which led Mr. Weed to speak of the
disappearance of Lansing. He said
that It was a tragedy and a mys
terious tragedy which for some Hint
was a national topic.
"Mr. Weed told me that be remem
bered very well writing something
about the disappearance for his news
paper. the Albany Evening Journal.
"I asked Mr. Weed to toll me what
he recollected of the incident. He
said 'Chancellor Lansing was one ol
the greatest lawyers of his kind In
the United States. He became espe
cially conspicuous at the time of the
adoption of the constitution of the
Unlted States because of his very
earnest efforts to prevent Nor York
Slate from ratifying the constitution,
and had It not been for Alexandei
Hamilton he would have succeeded.
If New, York had not ratified, the
constitutional convention would havt
been a failure and no one could tell
what the future of what is now the
United Slates would have been.
" Lansing.' said Mr. Weed, 'was
very highly respected notwithstand
ing his opposition to tho consfituti >
About the year 1812 he retired from
hia position as chancellor because he
had reached the age limit. He be
came very successful as a lawyer in
private practice after that.
"'Now,' said- Mr, Weed, 'all that
is known of his disappearance Is this.
He left his hotel In New York to walk
a short distance to the steamhoai
dock, expecting to post a letter or
documents designed for use In some
important, engagement at Albany.
No person was ever found who saw
the chancellor after he reached the
steamboat pier His friends at New
York presumed that he had taken the
boit, for Albany. Inquiry showed
however, that he was not upon thf
boat when It arrived at Albany. His
disappearance was absolute, without
the slightest trace of him. There
were all sorts of conjectures, t-'omc
thought that he had met with an ac
cident, perhaps fallen into the river.
Others were persuaded that he hao
been attacked secretly and robbed.
Some thought that he was murdered
and at one time the Impression was
that he had suddenly gone insane.
"'Now. continued Mr. Weed, 'al
though there was never any trace of
the chancellor after he left his hotel,
nevertheless one of the many pieces
of secret Information Impartd to me
some years later 1 have kept secret
and shall always keep secret. But,
I will tell you this much; the chan
cellor was engaged as counsel in
some very Important litigation. Some
original documents which were vital
as evidence were in his possession.
These documents disappeared when
he did. I cun say no more without,
betraying my secret excepting that f
can say that the disappearance of the
chancellor disproves the statement
that, sootier or later, murder will out.
The real reason for and the manner
of the disappearance of the chancellor
will, with my death, be forever hid
den from the knowledge pf men."
"I spoke of this to Dr. Harper to
show that In a great and crowded
city It was Impossible for a man of
prominence to disappear without the
slightest trace. In the ease of Mr.
Conant, however, who was a man ot
singular purity and uprightness of
life, abounding in charity and with
out enemies, and In perfect health, ll
was Impossible to ascribe any reason
for his disappearance excepting that
it was caused by some peculiar kind
of accident."

COUNTY WANTS
LAND FOR NEW
j
BRIDGE APPROACH
The
New- Castle County Levy
Court today began making prepara
tions for the building of the proposeu
new bridge across the Christiana
River at Third street. To obtain the
square bounded by Church, Third ana
Fourth streets for the western ap
proaches to the bridge. Mr. Burris
presented the following resolution In
court this morning:
Resolved, That the county engineer
be Instructed and authorized to pro
ceed to arrange to make an agreement
between the Philadelphia, Baltimore
and Washington Railroad Company,
the present owners of the tract of
land, bounded by Third, Fourth atm
Church streets and the Christiana
River; and the Levy Court of New
Castle county. State of Delaware;
whereby the said court may acquire
the said tract of land from the saiu
railroad company.
When tho former Levy Court con
ferred with the Railroad Company re
garding the purchase of this land the
price was placed at $18,000. The
idea now is to secure the whole lot
so that after ttie approach Is taken off
there will still remain enough land fori
a park. The present park is very |
popular with the residents of the east |
side of the city. Hence the Levy i
C ourt in considering the question of
securing the land for the approach i
decided to secure the whole plot and
give the people a park along the
Christiana.
