Howell nnd a Democratic revolt against the machine ticket set by Senator Willard Saulsbury and his local kitchen cabinet, the Republicans and National Progressives carried Wilmington In the municipal election on Sat urday by pluralities unprecedented In many years. The Republican and National Progressive city ticket was elected and the Republicans also carried City Coun cil, with Increased representation In that body, abort, the Democrats elected nothing except their As sessor and Colector in the strongly Democratic South ern District, and a minority in City Council, which may be reduced If charges made with respect to the count in the First ward can bo substantiated. Iu that can B up In ward Zimmermann, the Democratic Councllmanlc dldatc, won f!y 3 plurality after 17 ballots, moat of them • Republican and. National Progressive, had been thrown out. It may be that steps will be taken to seal Ar thur Johnson, the Republican candidate. But even without that vote, the Republicans and National Pro gressives will have a clear workiug majority In Coun cil during the next two years and also control of Omm every 6* branch of the city government. It whs a npl< mi -vry and the more gratifying In view of Ihe fact thiu R Republican and tho National Progressive leaders ••JS".* not anticipated one of such magnitude. «traat fri - r .

Mr. Monaghan sphko publicly In favor of Dr. Springer, but he could not hold his followers In line, head of the Democratic State ticket was assassinated politically last Pall, It was decreed that the head of the Democratic city ticket muat be assassinated liilcally this Summer, and it was done, the friends of Mr. Monaghan were knifing Dr. Springer, friends of Dr. Springer, who were cognizant of what was going on. were busy knifing other candidates Ihe Democratic ticket, with the result that evoryhlng .was lost to the Democrats and the Saulsbury machine. j lu 1911 the vote for Dr. J. Harvey Spruanco, the Democratic candidate for Mayor, was 7,088. the vote for Dr. Springer, the Democratic candidate, 5.967. As tho po And while on In 1913, That shows a loss of 1,121 on Saturday in Ihe total Democratic vote for Mayor, when there should have been an Increase, due to larger population, if to nothing else. That shows the terrible knlflnq to which Dr. Springer was subjected by the friends of Mr. Mon aghan and other Democrats. It, and the merciless slashlpg and defeat of the other Démocratie candidates by Dr. Springer's friends have split the Democratic party wide open In this city and on lines that It will be exceedingly difficult to heal. The question naturally arises, To whom d'd those Th« Honnhiio.n The Republican they did not go to Mayor Howell ia shown by the fact that his vote on Saturday was 290 Uss than the one he received In 1911. In the latter year his vote fas 7.646, while on Saturday It w as 7,255. Nor did they go to Houck, the Socialist candidate for Mayor. In fact, the Socialist vote allow ed a large falling off on Saturday; when It was only SI3 as against 770 two years ago. The returns show that the bulk of the Democratic vote that Dr. Springer lost, and the bulk of the Socialist vote that Houck lost, went to Francis I. duPont, the Bull Moose Pro gressive candidate for Mayor, who received a total rote of 1,898. Let H not be forgotten that the Bull Moose Progres sive cabal nominated Mr. duPont, in the hope that he would draw enough votes from Mayor Howell to de feat him. Melson cabal that Mr. duPonfs candidacy should full In the defeat of Dr. Springer and the re-election ot Mayor Howell. And yet, that Is just what It did. It supplied a middle-ground refuge for the Democratic assassins of Dr. Springer's candidacy who did not wish to pass on over into the Republican or the Na tional Progressive party. Knowledge of that fact must be far from pleasing to the Eastburn-Melson Moose cabal. It never was contemplated by the Eosthurn re-. as Bull If anyone had suggested to the Bull Moose cabal Saturday meriting that Mayor Howell, whom It was endeavoring to defeat, would come out of the tight with a plurality of 1,288, he would have been ridiculed; and yet that was exactly what the Mayor did. on The returns indicate that Mr. dnPoat received hundreds of Democratic, Republican and Socialist votes and that, with them stripped from his total vote, the residue, representing the actual Bull Moose vote, did not amount to more than 500, or about one-third what ihe Bull Moose vote was In this city last November, at which time Hynson, the Bull Moose candidate for Qov ernor, received 1,409 votes. In the city election on Saturday the Democratic xote for Mayor show ed a loss of 1.121 votes as compared with Ihe vote for Mayor two years ago. loss was 290 and the So« lalist loss. 417 That makes a total loss by those three parties of 1,858 vote«. While It ls true that many disgusted Democrats did not vote at all, the bulk of that 1,858 wont to mcke up the 1,795 1 votes iccelved by Mr. duPont for Mayor. The plurality of 1,288 received by Mayor Howell j on Saturday was the largest received by any Mayoralty j candidate with one exception. In the last twenty years. ' That exception was In 1903, when Bird. Democrat, had a plurality of 1,398, duo to the fact that the Republl vau volo was split between Bowers, Regular Repub lican, and Frantz, Union Republican. In that election the combined Republican and Union Republican vote was 087 greater than the Democratic vote cast for Bird. Frotr 1893 down to the present time the plu ralities for Mayor have been ns follow's: 1893 Hhor'lidgc. Rep . 1895— Jefferis, Dent. 1897—McLcar, Rep . ,t. 1899—Fahey, Dem .. 1901—Fisher, Rep. 1903—Bird, Dem .^.. 1906— Wilson. Rep. 1907— Wilson. Reft. 1909—Bproance, Dora. '. 1911—Howell.

We congratulate him and his associates on the Republican and National Pro gresse ticket upon the vote of confidence they have received from the people of Wilmington. , . , .2». . . . JHBMHIKM WATERFRONT VlfTOUV. A NOTH KR Important step In the long and determin ed fight of the people of Wilmington to suye the Delaware river waterfront, from the Wilmington Ter minal Company and Its associates was taken in the city election on Saturday. By an overwhelming vote, the average ratio of which was approximately 7 to 1, the electorate of Wilmington issued Its - mandate that steps be token In the courts to test the constitutional ity of the iniquitous Bulkhead l<aw of 1901, and also that condemnation proceedings he resorted to to give to our city the title to a narrow strip of marsh-bank land along the Delaware river from the mouth of the Christiana northward to Edge Moor. Had It not been for the raseallty of election officers In some districts and the stupidity of such officers ia other districts, in the matter of handling the water front ballots the vote on the two questions would have been much larger than It was. But, oven In the face of that rascality and stupidity, the vote whs large enough to show conclusively the strength of public sentiment In favor of protecting the city's waterfront on the Delaware against, the speculative Interests which are trying to get away with It and exploit It. The Department of Elections Issued Instructions that the election officers hand a waterfront referendum, ballot to each voter. In many districts that was,done. In many others the ballots wore not given to voters at all unless they asked for them. There were districts in which the waterfront, ballots were not put in the-boxes at all as they were voted, but were stacked up outside. In at least one instance a voter was compelled to de mand that the ballot he had cast and two other bal lots that had been cast just previously, be deposited in the box. It was evidently the design of the election officers in certain districts to do their utmost to keep the waterfront vote down to the lowest possible fig ures by falling to hand ballots to voters and by fail ing promptly to put ballots into the boxes after they had been cast. The sentiment in favor of the protection and the conservation of the waterfront was so strong, how ever, that thousands of Republicans, Democrats, Na tional Progressives. Progressives. Single Taxers, Refer endum Leaguers. Prohibitionists, Socialists and Inde pendents recorded themselves in favor of the city fighting the Wilmington Terminal Company and Us as sociates and obtaining on the Delaware river a mu nicipally-owned and controlled waterfront. Of each eight men who voted, seven voted In favor of such a policy and Issued their mandate that It b: carried out. It was a glorious victory for the people of our city and would have been much iqore glorious had it not been for the rascality and stupidity of certain elec tion officers and their flagrant violation of tha Instruc tions of the Department of Elections. That Ihe strength of the sontlroen In favor of the waterfront and against the Wilintugon Terminal Com pany and Its associates may he shown, let us cite a few figures, selected at random, from several of the ol8c tion districts: First District, Eight ward—Yes. 75; no. 0.

Tenth ward—Yes. 61; no. 1. Fourth District, Ninth ward—Yes, 75; no, 3. Third District Tenth ward—Yes, 77; no, 1. Second District, Tenth ward—Yes. Ill; no, 12. Sixth District, Sixth ward—Yes, 102; no, 12. Third District, Sixth ward—A' es, 102; no, 7. Fourth District, Ninth ward—A'es, 107; no. 24. Eighth District, Ninth ward—A' es, 150; no, 40. Ninth District. Ninth ward—Yes, 182; no, 34. Twelfth District, Ninth ward—Yes. 219; no. 26. The above figures, which as yet are unofficial, clear ly indicate the depth of public sentiment on the all important waterfront question. The only regret is that the ballots were handled so poorly that many voters did not vole upon the ques tions submitted. The returns show, however, that even if every voter who did not vote had voted against tho two waterfront questions there still would have re mained large majorities in their favor. j companies operating .n our Hty seem to tgle^ride n obeying the regulation against that noise making de ! f Pr t in the wheel« j" NEW NEWS OF YESTERDAY How General Grant Tried to Economize By Rutland. The late General A. L. Chetlaiu. of Chicago, who began service In the Civil War as captain of the first company organized in Galena, ill., and who, when the war was ended, was brevet major-general, said to me some lime In 1897 that as time passed and he grew old. he found himself recalling very vividly some of the incidents associated with the en listment of the Galena company, in April, 1801, and a few weeks later some of his experiences In Spring field before the regiment to which his company was attached, went to the front. ''Almost all of the Incidents which recall with increasing vividness each year ua 1 grow older were In one way or another associated with General Grant's identification with our first Galena company of volun teers." said General Ghetlaln. "There were many little things which at the time 1 took no heed of, at Uaiat consciously, hut they after ward wore recalled to me and with increasing vividness. All of them were associated with Captain Grant, as we then know him. 1 presume there are now in .Galena or some where in the West surviving mem bars of our first company, who re member as vividly as 1 do General Grant's identification as Captain Grant with the organisation and drilling of our company, but I think I am Ihe only man living who can tell the history in full the ! ner In which Captain Grant, then clerk In his father's store, took charge as drillmaster, and afterward accompanied ua to Springfield. "I was very Intimate with Captain Grant at the time. I had, in fa at, been one ol his warmest friends in Galena, our friendship beginning only a few days after he came from St. Louis to beglrr work as a clerk in his father's store "After Grant became folonel of an Illinois regiment 1 lost track of him for a year or two excepting Giat us soon as hr began to gain prominence I was able to follow his movements. "I shall never forget one almost, pathetic Incident that occurred short ly after our Galena company arrived in Springfield. Captain Grant and I took rooms at one of the hotels. He spent hla days in visiting the State House trying to find some one who would bring him to the notice of Gov ernor Tates. I was occupied .all day with my company, so that 1 did not see Captain Grant from breakfast un til supper time. We usually had our meals at the same table. "1 noticed after a few days that Captain Grant was beginning to look worried. He seemed a little despond ent. He was a very sensitive man upd for that reason l did not make any inquiries, hut learned to wait until he thought it worth while to toll me what it was that worried him. ii __ . ... .. , , ,, captain who was in sucht money dis ress that he was forced to ask me. to a ci épi mm as a room-mate was ,^ U L.« ea , I f 8 *r 0U of ill h.afnZr-" ° chanic Copyrighted 1913 bv R S FU * " ' "One morning at breakfast.
