FBl'lT GROWKRH AKI» t 0-0PERATI«>. •pEMNSULA fruit growera have lost In the past mll Hons of dollars In returns because of their fail ure to grade and pack their fruits properly.. There has been an Improvement In that, respect In recent years, but It affects only a very small proportion of Peniu sula horticulturists. Thousands of growers have failed to profit by the ex perience of growers In the North. West and South. Those who have followed up-to-date and approved methods have irtnde money. No doubt In years to come the good example of those pioneers In the local horticultural Held will he followed by other growers and In due time the Peninsula pack will compare fa vorably with that of any section of the country. George A. Maxwell, of New Castle, has an orange grove in Florida. ■ He Is a member of the Florida Cit rus Exchange. Through hia courtesy we b»v P receiv ed a copy of the declaration of purposes and princi ple of that big co-operative fruit-growers' organiza tion. one of the largest In the world. On the cover of the pamphlet we find the follow lag: "The duty r of the Florida Citrus Exchange, vvhldh duty it proposes to perform. Is to obtain for an honest grower, who tenders it honest fruit, honestly packed, an honest price for his product, and we against anybody who attempts to bring about aev condition other tjjan this." The annual reports of the exchange show that In the seast n of 1999 and 1910 the eltohange bundled 1.483,309 be, es of citrus fruit and obtained an average price of 11.34 per box for If. In the season of 1910 and 1911 It handled 832,310 boxes and obtained an average price of 11 65 a box. II the season of 1911 and 1912 It handled 741.9l'7 boxes and obtained an average of 12.21 a box.. While in the season of 1912 13, th» larg est In Its history, it handled 1,738,045 boxes and suc ceeded In holding the average price up to 11.91 a box. It accomplished those results in the face of the fact that It handled only from 17 to 22 per cent, of the total crops In those years. Thousands of growers who re fused to avail themselves of the good offices of tho ex change and Its many branches failed utterly to obtain the good prices realized by Us members. In due time the fruÄ growers In Delaware will learn to appreciate the benefits which arise from co-opera tive effort and will adopt such methods In the mar keting of their crops. By taking the best features of the plans of co-operation In the North. tl\e West and the South, they should experience little difficulty In obtaining an eclectic system unsurpassed for Its efficiency. In many progressive eitles publie flytraps are main tained in the streets and market places. Millions of files are destroyed through those agencies. We have (n Wilmington hundreds of fly-infested places in which such devices might be used to good advantage In the fiy-swattlng campaign. MITHIN« PERM)ML. WEN w« issued an editorial note of warning to Sussex county topers that unless they refrain ed from using red-hot substitutes for intoxicating bev erages they might see the compsngnathus. the Iguano don hernissartensls. the diprotodon, the chelrothelum. the ceratosaurus. the brontotherlum, the archaeop teryx. the coryphodon, the hesperornls, the odontor nlthes. the peslosaurus, the pterodactyl, and even the ceuglodon and the paradoxides, we had no idea that we were treading upon the corns of anyone who would manifest his resentment publicly. .And yet. the Laurel Leader came out-on Saturday with the follnv4ng: "THE EVENING JOURNAL'S duty la done. With un pronouncable words It mocks Sussex In an endeavor Jo show up our Infirmities regarding the buying of liquor To be sure, we cannot obtain liquor as readily as do the people of Wilmington, and It is perhaps to our credit that we do not of neceslty bring to Hi minds such reptiles as the writer for THE EVENING JOURNAL conjured In his effort to 'show us up' be fore the eves of Its readers." We apologize sincerely to the editor of the Laurel Leader. We wouldn't have done it for anything had we known the facts In the case.^^Bl W our It is our earnest ef fort to be considerate In such matters. Ear be It from us to make the drought In Sussex any worse than It is. or to bring out individual weaknesses even by In advertence. We prefer to pursue the policy of the guests at the British soldier's wedding persons that after .one of It will be recalled by many the soldiers who had at tended that wedding h*d told a comrade who had not attended it all he remembered about the ceremony the other inquired, quite innocently ' And who gave the "Not a soul." his comrade replied. to-Me away?" •fiXsory fellow present kept his mouth shut." »n the liquor question under immediate discussion we simply can say that It never was our purpose to make t personal, nor did we make it personal. Noth ing »•*» farther from our thoughts, it remained tor the 1/ceaer, with its "ours" and tts "we's." to do that However, we apologize sincerely for having made It ■oxsonal, even by Inadvertence. HOT WEATHER AM> PERTURBATION. T HE Every Evening, with characteristic editorial In telligence. suggests that If the State Issues a hunt er's license to a person, that person may sue the State If the holder of the license cannot find a place In which he may be permitted to shoot. Why not relieve the editorial mind of the Every Evening by having an executive order Issued throwing open the fetal« Rifle Range to all such disappointed gunners and au thorizing them to shoot at the targets? Perhaps that would cur« the hot-weather technicality to the satis faction of onr contemporary. With no desire to Increase the mental perturbation of the Every Evening, but merely from a sense of duty, we wish to call attention to the fact that landowners and sportsmen In Sussex also are much perplexed over the new game laws, notices of which have been posted In different places in that county. Many landowners say they purpose putting anti-trespass notices on their lands and not permitting anyone from the city, or anyone unknown to them to gun on their lands. One of our Sussex county exchanges says such landowners contend that the laws are made especially for a class In the cities that desires to go to Sussex and enjoy the game, and they purpose posting their lands and keeping them off. It thus will be seen that, from the viewpoint of the Every Evening, the menace to the State treasury In creases hourly. Ry this time, however, the public has come to understand that there Is a vast difference be tween the fears of the Every Evening and the actual danger. We venture the prediction that not one dollar of State money will he paid out to any litigant In any such suit as It suggests. Nothing seems to daunt the militant suffragists In England, and Sylvia Panhhurat la one ot (he most dauntleaa of, that army of vote-seeking women that Is keeping the "tight little Island" In such a turmoil. The attempted attack upon the home of Premier Asquith on Sunday, was one of the most desperate demonstrations yet made, and the tact that It was aimed at the man who, officially, ranks next to King George, made if all the more significant. It was with the utmost difficulty that the police stopped the march on Downing street and saved the home of the Prime Minister from helng attacked Miss Pankhurst, seemingly eating little for the fact that she was out of prison on license and likely to be re committed for the slightest Infraction of the law, showed herself to be a true daughter of Elnmallne Pankhurst by getting In the forefront of the fight against the police and staying there until she and twenty other suffragists had been arrested. In short, she and her friends gave the tail of the British Hon another vicious twist, and the likelihood Is that It will not be by any means the last one. reserves The Wilson administration at last bas summoned courage to inform the Hucrra administration In Mex ico that the lives, persons and properties of Americans in that country must be protected. There has been such a policy or dilly-dallying with the republic south of the Rio Grande that the Mexicans have been led to believe that they may shoot, maltreat and rob Amer-, leans with .impunity and escape all punishment there, for. President Wilson's action In demanding the pun ishment of those who ruthlessly shot Charles B. Dixon, /an American Immigrant official at, Juarez, Is timely and will meet with public approval. That also Is true With respect to his demand for the Immediate release of Charles Blssell and Bernard McDonald, who were seized by Federal soldiers In Chihuahua Cl)y and imprisoned. The Mexicans. Fédérais and revolu tionists, must be given to understand that they must respect Americans and their interests or suffer th« consequences. * With one harbor of refuge at Cape Henlopen and another at Cape May. the Importance of the mouth of the Delaware bay as a place of shelter for storm menacefi craft should he Increased greatly. There Is no telling what loss of life, shipping property and car goes has been averted by the Delaware Breakwater at Lewes. No doubt the new refuge at Cape May will add correspondingly to the good record that has been made on the Delaware »Id« of the capes. When the proposed extension of the Breakwater system at Lewes baa been added to the safety devices already provided by a watchful Federal Government there will be few safer place along the coast than the stretch of water Just inside Cape Henlopen and Cape May. Rising Sun, Md., has shown Its progressiveness by providing for a public water system of the standpipe type. Ground for the plant has been broken, people In that thriving community are sn determined to have the protective benefits and conveniences of such a system that they have consented to a tax 'In crease of twenty cents on the $100 to meet the expense. The example set by Rising Run Is well worthy of emul ation by every tows of alze on the Peninsula, as most of the' towns are built of frame and It would be ceedtngly difficult to prevent a fire from spreading were It once to get headway. The ex In an effort to Justify, or wriggle out of. Its attack upon the Phoenix Fire Comnany, of this city, because of Its refusal to send Its ambulance to the militia carapment at the State Rifle Range near Delaware City, the Morning News denies our statement that the regiment has an ambulance of its own and that It was en at the encampment. We wish to Inform it that such an ambulance was there; ambulance and that this second effort to make of the Phoenix company the "goat" In the case under dis cussion la s flat failure. that If Is a regular army The Board of Public Utility Commissioners at last has »ceompHshed something of practical benefit. It has Induced the Wilmington and* Philadelphia Traetlon Company to equip Its construction and repair wagons with devices of heavy rubber to place over high-tension electric wires to protect Us employes against injury death from shock while at work on the lines. Now that the commission has done that much tor the protection o( the company's employes. It should address Itself to transportation matters whirl) affect the general pub or 11c. A soil survey ot the Delmarvla Peninsula w-|ll be of great value. The Chamber of Commerce is doing a good work In urging the necessity for It upon Con gress. With such a survey and with the large farms cut up Into smaller tracts and subjected to Intensive and Intelligent cultivation the yield per acre should be increased many fold, it Is hoped that Delaware's rep resentatives In Congress win be able to influence Con gress to authorize the surveys so badly needed. A movement in favor of underground electric, tele phone and telegraph wires has been started in Dover. If that community succeeds in getting them under ground it win do much better than many much larger communities, including our owq, have succeeded In do ing. NEW NEWS OF YESTERDAY How the Danger of a Con tested Election Was Averted By Holland. It has always been the presump tion that It was largely due to the ad vice of Jay Gou)d that the Republican patty derided to accept without seri ous question the officially announced résulté of the vote of New York State in the presidential election of 1884. "In the conversation which I once had with the late William R. Grace, who was elected mayoi; of New' York city on the day of the presidential election of 1884 and who had been nominated as the candidate of the Cleveland or County. Democracy for Mayor, he told me that It jva» not entirely due or In any considerable measure due to the advice of Jay Gould that some of the more Impet uous Republicans who thought of contesting the election abandoned that purpose. "You remember," said Mayor Grace, "that for several days the election w as vt ry doubtful. The figures were very close. At on» time it seemed almost certain that Blalnq had car ried the Siate b\ « plurality less than a thousand Then came lepovs which indicated that Cleveland had carried It by an equally small plural By. There was, as always is the case In close elections, charges of fraud and ballot-box stuffing. "My own party had not cot Ove r Its feeling th.v Governor Tilden had been deprived of the presidency through skilful Republican tactics, It was certain that it, eight Years later, an attempt wsp made to con test the presidential vote there m'gnf be danger of civil war. A i.ecret con ference held by several citizens of New York who went of Influence, and who represented different parties, w'as held, and it was decided to com municate Informally wdth some of the leading Republicans In Washington. "I presume It will never be known who these men were. The.y were actuated by the profoundest patriotic motives. ! think a good many per sons felt that, as THden lost fbe presidency by reason of the contested election, It would even things up If Cleveland were permitted without test to take the place, although there were some sincere doubts as to whether he had actually carried New York State. "These men went to Washington and among others, who they saw, was John Sherman, then a United States Senator, Mr. Sherman learned authoritatively upon the face o? the returns that Cleveland had carried New York State by a little over 1.000 plurality. To upset these returns It would be necessary to bring a con test, order a recount and establish charges of fraud. "Senator Sherman' said to these gentlemen: 'You go bark to New York and say that It is my opinion and that of my colleagues !n the Senate with whom I have talked »ha* it Is the duly of the Republican party to accept unquestioned what 'be re turns in New York Stale show the plurality to have been. It is In the highest digree Important that lhi| he done, toy I fear that the country could not stand again the strain of a contested presidential election.' "1 have always suspected that lav Gould w is aware that the Republican ! I Senators would not support any at tempt to contest the election of Grov er Cleveland. In view of what the returns in New York State showed the election to have been, but It was chiefly the Influence of John Sherman and two or three others at Washington which served to cool the impatience and put an end to the Irritation of certain of the Repub licans. who for a time advocated making a contest over the reported return of the poll In New York State."

County Levy Court would offer the par ties who trap the speeders one halt the tines, the other half of the fines go t" the county, perhaps this reckless speed ing could be stopped. GRADE CROSSINGS AND AUTOS. From the Georgetown Journal. The terrible accident near Milton last Sunday, which caused the death of one man and seriously injuring another, should be a warning to all automobile drivers to be careful when crossing rail road tracks. The fact that your view of (he tracks is out off by some obsta cle. is the more reason that drivers should "stop, look and listen" before trying to cross over. The accident last Sunday is a sail one, and is regretted j by everybody, and it should be u lesson to others. SUSSEX AND BAD ROADS. From the Laurel Leader. From every section of the county vve hear flic cry of "bail roads." and yet the very ones who make the are those who would vote against a bond issue tor such purpose* as the repairing, grading and leveling of roads. The howl of being "taxed to death" is as old a» taxes, and is always brought forward a» ah excuse against improvement». A great many of Bussex fanners and land owner* are like the Arkansas squatter, who. w hen asked, as he fiddled away in front of hi» lint, why he didn't repair tue shattered roof, replied: "When it rains I can't, and when it don't rain it don't need it." i v ) STKA>GF PROCEDI RE, From the Klkton *V'hlg.

In some ease*, it must he ad Bitted, a match is perfected in this way us an ordinary business arrangement, pendent public is coming to have and less respect for the little political |heelers and it Is coming to more and more decline to be led by their little political "frame-ups." That public is n ot going to respect or tolerate the man or set of men who show them selves actuated only by the smallest and most selfish political motives, and w*ho are likewise indifferent to the things that the public needs. wants and THE LIVES WE LEAD. From the J'hiladelphia J'uhlje Ledger. As long ».» we can lead our live» wo think are all right—Sometimes, like headstrong horses, onr lives become too much for our restraining powers Ami lead us. I» that un unmitigated evil? At moment^ in every existence, no matter how tortured and how tried, there come diviner glimpse» of what »'e might be und are not—a sudden flash of the inspiration of almost superhu man possibilities, it is like walking along the beclouded crest of a mountain range; enshrouded in the dark and chill n;i-t. we grope and tire hesitant, and vve long for a far view, seeing only tue lichen covered rock» at an arm's length. The scanty trail by which we came is obliterated, and it is as hough no man walked this way before, nor do vve know whether the actual summit i» within hail or a mile distant. All at once the magnificent sun breaks through. The cloutT-wraiths flee like guilty things and go to make darkness and bring in certitude elsewhere. Onr spirits expand to the shining heavens, ami yre look down upon the smiling valley-land far below. We see tbc rivers meandering toward the deep, the wide green fields and here and there « cluster pf habita tions with I heir smoky breathing in the sky. Perhaps a railway train is per forming an embassy from one of these places to another and at that distartce its roaring is reduced to silence and its speed to funeral deliberateness. The distant horizon is onr own again; the imprisoned spirit is. ,-et at large and roams at will betwixt the heaven above and the earth beneath. We enjoy the sense of fnonarchical potency described in tbe famous verses upon Alexander Selkirk's solitude. Kings, emperors, - .presidents, governor» are beneath n.s and infinitely little.
