SAl'LSBURY'S PAfNFtfL DILEMMA. gENATOR 43AULSBURY had before him on Saturday hla Democratic lieutenants who hunger for the Wilmington postofflee. He heard what they had to say for themselves and reserved decision. It may be several days before he announces his cho.ce. While nothing of a definite nature was announced following the appearance of the candidates before him, the friends of James J. English did not seem 1o he particularly well pleased with the way in which things had shaped up. There even were rumors on Saturday night fhat the hig Democratic reverses In the Tw-olfth ward In the city election had supplied to Senator Banlsbury the excuse ho craved to pul bofh English and Peter J. Ford out of the running, and that Thomas N. Slayton had forged to tho front as the most formid able aspirant for the coveted place. It matters not whom Senator Saulsbury appoints he will havo to reckon in future with those whom he disappoints. English, Ford, Cooper, Stsyton and Farry are not men who will submit tamely to being flounted by the man whom they helped to land In Ihe United Slates Senate, and Senator Saulsbury will not have enough desirable office* In his gift, to placate those whom h» will turn down tn deliver the poslmasier •hip to his favorite. In short, ho would be pleased better .were there fewer candidates, and tho few not hound to him so closely by political ties. His dilemma Is a painful one. v Alaska's Interest In educational matter« Increases steadily and cotnmendably. The legislature there has memorialized Congress for a territorial Board of Edu cation and two superintendents of schools. There are forty-two white public schools, .1,000 pupils and the territory has a white population of about 40,000. Des pite those facts, which should show the necessity for educational organization and supervision, the territory has no Territorial Board of Education, examining hoard or school superintendents. The terras of (he petition filed and, upon which, It la hoped, favorable action will be taken, shows that the Alaskans have a keen appreciation of the disadvantages they are suf fering through lack of the things for W'hich they are asking. BOELET ARD A1VD PITT BEAFTIFTT,. HEN thn question of building a handsome boule vard through the western section of our city comes up before tho Board of Street and Sewer Di w rectors on June 20 there should bo a full and free discussion of that highly Important question, proposed that the route of (he boulevard shall bo by way of Grant and AVioodlawn avenues and that It shall supply a broad and parked connection between Bran dywine Park and tho parks In the southwestern section of our city. It Is proposed that tho boulevard shall bo 160 feet wide. Quite naturally the Street and Sewer Directors de alrc to obtain a comprehensive Idea of the coot of such magnificent improvement, which would be so bene ficial to the people at large as well as to tho owners of abutting property In Grant and Woodland avenues. Therefore, It Is eminently proper that the owners of abutting properly appear before the board and voice their views and Inform the directors how liberal they will be In the matter of letting the city h&ve tho land needed to widen tho two existing avenues. If we are to have a city beautiful. In relation to It is which so much has been beard recently, It must como through wide and ornamented thoroughfares entend Ing between lines of handsome homes in attractive grounds. The creation of such a boulevard as Is pro posed .In the western section of our city would bo important step In the direction of a city bcautl an ful. Senator J. Ham. Lewis would deal a deadly blow to the paragrapher and bis Income were he to have his pink whiskers dyed black. BTLL MOOSE DEMOCRATS A>D SAELSRERT. ervlE Georgetown Sussex Journal, one of a chain of weekly newspapers owned and controlled by Senator WIHard Saulsbury, says; The Republicans carried tho city election In Wil mington last Saturday and elected their Mayor and most ot the city officers. Many reasons are given for the defeat of the Democratic ticket but In a position to place the blame. we are not We suggest that in it* next Issue the Journal he fair enough to Us readers to slat* that the Democrats in this city thought so little of th* city ticket set by the Saulsbury machine that on* thousand of them felt Justified in breaking away from Iheir party and. In most instances, voting a Bull Moose Progressive ticket. It might add that many of those Bull Moose Democrats are out of the Democratic party to stav until Senator Saulsbury Is out of control of that organization. up We wish to remind the sorrowing In the and regions of Kent and Sussex that in Maine the thirsty carry beer lozengers. cocktail tablets and highball capsules In their vest pockets. now HUM K Kl I.f 'S HIHMH l, OUTLOOK.

The road leading to Horae Rule baa boon lone and rocky. and the end la not yet. I Thorn are signs, however, that public sentiment In Great Britain Is shoving the movement cloae to the goal and that an unremitting struggle for self-government that has won the admiration of the world soon will be won. The House of .Commons passed a Home Rule bill several months ago. It was sent to the House of liords. That body rejected It. The House of Commons passed It once more and the indications are (hat the House of I<ords soon will reject It once more and re turn It to the Commons, If that body pass It again. It will become law, despite thp Lords and the long fight of the Irish for political liberty will be won. The chief danger is that the present Liberal Gov ernment, which Is committed to Home Rule, will not last until the Home Rule bill can ho passed over the veto of the Lords. The early downfall of the Asquith n Cabinet would be fatal to the bill, because the Com mons. to override the will of the Lorfls. must hill three times within the life of the which initiates It. Otherwise, the light must bo made all over again. There already are signs of the early downfall of the Asquith Ministry. The Unionists have carried most of the hyc-eloctlons and several prominent Lib eral leaders have been discredited, through speculation, within the last few'months. An unfortunate feature of the situation Is that the Irish, who have not been compromised by the revelations affecting (heir Liberal colleagues, would be Ihe worst sufferers from the downfall of the Asquith Cabinet. Even, however. If such a disaster should overtake the present bill, the Irish would continue their fight for Home Rule, with , reasonable assurance of ultimately gaining it. pass a Government Athletic subjects of King George of England suf fered two signal defeat» in this country during Hie last week. American polo players vanquished crack British team, and American boxers outpointed and defeated the best boxers Canada had to offer. That Is a fair beginning for the present Summer season. the BROADSIDE FROM THI! WOLCOTT C\MP. HEN Ihe Saulsbury-Wolcott, fight was In full swing In Kent county and political history was hot. In the making. Ihe Dover Index was the Wolcott organ. James L. Wolcott and most of his lieutenants of those strenuous days have passed away, hut. the Index never has lost Its hatred of the Saulshurys and the things political appertaining to them. Tt did whi.t It could to defeat, Willard Saulsbury Tu his fight for the United State« Senatorship, and failed. Seemingly It glories In the defeat of the Saulsbury, machine In the Wilmington city election of a week ago. It ways; The Democratic machine In Wilmington suffered an overwhelming defeal In the municipal election last Saturday, tt might reasonably he supposed that with Ihe Republican party divided that Ihe Democrats would elect their candidate for Mayor, President of Council, City Treasurer and a majority of the Coun cilman. The Democratic candidate for Mayor, Dr, Wil lard Springer, Is a. high-class gentleman and nothing could be said against the Democratic nominee« person ally. They were fully the equal of their Republican opponent«, and In most cases superior. The Demo cralle machine, however, as we have noticed in rçcent elertlone, and In New Casile county. Is only powerful In dictai Ing nominations and falls down woefully ou election day. The Wllmlnlgon Democratic machine Is, however, very much in cvlddpre when (here I» patron age In sight. After losing the Senatorshlp by all the rules of the game In (he November election. It came w along and took It by force. However, better days are tn sight, and the Democrat* of Kent county will yet come Into their own.

It is Impossible to conceive a more and -'unconven ntterly democratic tlonal ceremony by which a distin guished office was passed from man to another than that which was associated with the giving up by Gen-' era) Sherman of his office of general of the armies of the United States and the assumption of that office by his successor, General Sheridan. It was my good fortune to witness the simple and unassuming cere mony, hardly a ceremony at all, by which General Sherman transferred to General Sheridan the office of gen one eral of the. armies of the United Stales. This little ceremony took place in November, 18871. Congress had some months earlier passed a law of compulsory retirement of an officer In the army at the age of 62 years upon a pension. When the bill was under discussion the members ot the Senate proposed that General Rherman be exempted from tho provisions of the act so that î It would only apply to his suc cessors, ami miment of this kind Rherman would have been general of the armies during his lifetime. He was away from Washington at Ihe time ihe amendment was under discussion, but as soon as he heard of It he communicated with hfcs brother. Senator Sherman, asking the senator to prevent the adoption ot the amendment. salil it would not he fair to others to prevent their promotion in this way during his lifetime. His request was heeded, although the hill contained a provision that Had Congress adopted an General General Sherman „ , ... General Sherman should, upon his retirement, receive as his pension the full pay of (he general of the army. Hut for General Sherman's action he need not. have transferred the command of the army to General Sheridan, nor would Sheridan «vor have been general, since General Sherman outlived him by three years. The I raster look place In the of fice of the general of the army In Ihe war department building at Wash ington on November l, 1SS3. Sheridan came In smiling. He was not In uiform. He shook hands with one j or two persons whom he appeared to know well and (hen he looked in quiringly about, apparently for the purpose of discovering whether Gen eral Sherman was there He heard a call. "Come in, general." and he went into an inner room. Geeral Sherman was there, also in elvilian's dress. The greeting was as Informal and casual, although most cordial, as if two pleasant ac quaintances had met upon the street and slopped to chat for a minute or two. General Sherman had Just been cleaning out his desk. He had. s little earlier, written his last, order, one announcing his retirement and the succession of General Sheridan. After a few moments General Sheridan sal at the. deck in a casual sort of way. wrote aomethjng and then got up and began to rearrange some of (he books, blowing the dust off his hands as he did so and slrik ing books together for the purpose of removing the dust which had gath ered upon them. He took the desk which General Sherman had vacated and Sherman went out of (he office without the slightest apparent con eeptlon that he had in this Informal, unconventional way retired forever ! from the command of the American ! army, and in tljis respect his manner j differed not. al all from that of. Gen i eral Sheridan, who signalized his ac-I qnislllon of the title and responsible ! ties of general hy simply seating I himself at a desk Just as though had simply dropped Into a chair for a moment's chat.
