We read of a meeting held in Newark, N. J., on Tuesday last, "for the purpose of ■•organizing the Democratic party" in that State. The result, it is announced, was "a victory for the municipal owner ship faction." The declaration of principles adopted by this conference favors municipal ownership and operation of all local public utilities', government ownership and opera tion of all railroads, express, telegraph and telephone lines, the election of United States Senators by popular vote; just and equal taxation of railroad and other cor porations; a return to the election of Assemblymen by election districts in stead of by counties; the enactment of a corrupt practices act to prevent the de bauching of the electorate; the enactment of a law making the giving or the accept ing ot money by or from any rorporation to be ttsed in elections a penal offence; the extension of the referendum to all statutes; the enactment of a law safe guarding employes of factories, mills, Ac.; a universal workday of eight hours. Some of these declarations are purely local in their character, but others have a national scope. The latter, therefore, may be accepted as having a direct bear ing ujKin Hie policies to be advocated by the Democratic party in its national cora Iqdgns. At least they sill I» urged by the mpnaentatives from Now Jersey in future Democratic National Conventions, if this "reorganization" shall stand. 1'resuiniug that these alleged New Jersey Democratic policies wall find favor with a majority of the delegates to the next Democratic National Convention, where would the party find itself? It would find itself pledged to municipal ownership and operation of nil local public utilities, with thousands of Democrats opposed to surit assumption. It would find itself committed to government ownership and operation of all railroada, 2 reorganization of party express, telegraph and telephone lines, when thousands of Democrats are un alterably opposed to such a radical policy. More than that; With thousands of Demo crats who hold that such an assumption of authority in business mutters by the general govenuuent is diametrically opposed to the very foundation prin ciples of the Democratic party, as pro mulgated by its great leader, Thomas Jefferson. Therefore, in a campaign for the success of these principles, the Democratic party would find Itself seriously handicapped by the defection of thousands of its voter* seriously as it was by the silver in flation folly during the campaigns of 1896 and 1900. What hope of victory could it have under such conditiona T It may be urged that in such a cam paign the Democratic party would be re inforced by the votes of the thousands of Republicans who favor government ownership and operation of all railroad, steamboat, express and telegraph lines. Hut, in such event, w-ould it bo the Demo cratic party ? Would it not be the Public Ownership party, masquerading under the Democratic title ? The Republican party, it may be added, would find itself much in the same pre dicament in respect of this question. Many Republicans favor government ownership and operation, while many others are opposed to it. And suppose the advocates of govern ment ownership should prove to be in a majority in the Republican National Con vention also, and the result should be a declarat ion in favor of government owner ship and control of railroads and other public utilities T Then there would be no difference between these two great parties on this issue. Would not s third (jarty naturally follow, composed of Re publicans and Democrats who are opposed to government ownership and control of public utilities in any form T Under existing conditions, neither of the two great political parties can afford to become involved in spon-oral-ip for such policies, which are not partisan in any sense as marking the line of demar cation between these two parties. A campaign along the lines of government , ownership could not possibly be a cam paign distinctively between Democratic and Republican parties. Surely the Democratic porty can find a »minder T»ltcy. a stronger policy and a purely Democratic policy in the advurai ot a radical reiurbruf our proUiclitc luttU > Proofs of the Theft. If anything were lacking in support of the charges tliat the money of large corporations was contributed in liberal sums to the funds of the Republican Na tional Committee, it has been supplied by tbe unsolicited testimony of Andrew Hamilton, distributor of the "yellow dog bind" of the New York Mutual Life In surance Co. Mr. Hamilton was tbe man who had charge of the New York Life's expendi tures for political purposes. With money for which he was not required to give any detailed account, he bought legisla tion at Albany, or paid lor the defeat of legislation that threatened to prove in imical to the insurance companies, from the funds thus committed to his charge he made contributions to the cam paign funds of the Republican National Committee, and, possibly, to other poli tical agencies. Comeliua N. Bliss, former Secretary of the interior and a prominent citizen of Now York, is treasurer of the Republican Also, National Committee, and has been for several national campaigns. Hamilton declared that he had given Bliss 875,000 for the committee's use in tbe campaign of 1806. Bliss denied this with great em phasis. "No such sum was ever paid over by Mr. Hamilton or the New York Life," he declared, positively. "My word ought to he accepted as final. No such receipt exiata. If anyone says so he lies." But, alas for the finality of Mr. Bliaa' word. Up comes the agent of the "yellow dog fund," smiling and confident, and exhibits Treasurer Bliss' receipt, which was photographed for the New York Herald and a cut thereof printed in that paper. Plainly speaking, this proof •bows that if anyone lied, Treasurer Bliss is the liar. For the receipt acknowledges the payment In hand of 875,000 in two instalments—$10,000 on October 1st and 865,000 on October 20th, 1896—and the signature la "C. N. Bliss, Treasurer Re publican National Committee." What a deliberately thievish transac tion this seems, when spread out in cold type. Here was the sum of 875,000 taken from the treasury of an insurance com pany—money which belonged to the stockholders and policyholders—and given over to a partisan committee, to be expended for purely partisan purposes. Thousands, probably millions, of dol lars were thus taken from the treasuries of various business concerns in this coun try during the national campaign of 1890, and contributed to the Republican party. The pretext was the "salvation of the national credit" by securing the defeat of the political party which had com mitted itself to the free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 10 to 1. The cause was a righteous one, but it was anything but righteous to help it along with stolen money. Yet many thousands of dollars were thus stolen, at least one banking institution in this city having been an offender. And it may be that no attempt will ever be made to prosecute those who thus stole money by the thousands of dollars for partisan political purposes. Southern»™ and Indiana, The Nashville, Tenn., American makes a novel defence of those responsible for the fateful battlo at Mount Dajo, in the Philippines, which created such a furore in this country by reason of tho terrible, indiscriminate slaughter that accom panied it, even women and children being among the slain. It repudiates all the adverse criticisms that have been directed against this most unfortunate move by Gen. Wood in tho following airy manner: Tho officer in direct command tvaa a Southerner, Col/ Duncan of Texas. Capt. Rivers, a Tennesseean, led one of tho at tacking columns. A captain from Georgia led another. The most seriously wounded officer was an Alabamian. Among the privates killed was a Tennessee boy. Southerners do not want only slaughter women amt children or kill prisoners, and any assertion to the contrary is an in famous falsehood. The dough faced critics who are attempting to reflect tho honor of the American soldier, as some of them are attempting to do. will prob ably condemn tho officers of the law who are trying to run down outlaws and mur deres in the Indian Territory. Mquaws who had rifles in their hands and who were dressed like the bucks were killed in tho fight at Wounded Knee, anti the • HI soldiers were denounced for it by this same class of featherbed critics. The American troops performed an unpleasant duty at Mount Dajo, and are always ready to do their duty whether it be pleasant and safe or disagreeable and dangerous. As though locality had anything to do with the real question at issue. A South ern soldier may be as brutal as one from New England; or a New England soldier may be as chivalrous and humane as one from the South. The subordinates and soldiers engaged in that sanguinary struggle did just what they manded to do, no doubt, and the respon sibility justly rests upon those in com mand. were com Nor is there any more consistency in this Southern newspaper's reference to the Indians. This country lias to boast of in its treatment of the Indians than in its treatment of the Filipinos.

Our treatment of both these peoples is any thing but a creditable contribution to history. no more our The current issue of Delaware College Review conic« out in a strong editorial denunciation of the cowardly practice of hazing, with special reference to the ports of an intention on the part of of the upper classmen to revive tho miser able practice at that institut ion.

Those pessimists who groan over what they call the absolute surrender of the country to the control of the oor|Kinkth>us, with every right of the citizen ruthlessly sacrificed, may derive comfort from read ing this little incident; Under a verdict of a Westchester county jury, rendered in the Supreme kmrt at White Plains, the Westchester -ighling Co., which is a branch of the Gas Trust of Manhattan, will have to pay 82,260 to John A. B. Shelly of Yonk ers, for turning off his gas. Mr. Shelly sued for 85 a day penalty under the statute tor 450 days, during which time the gas company refused to serve him with gas. It was alleged by the Gas Trust that the plaintiff had failed to pay a bill for 815 which was presented to him for gas used forty-five days. Mr. Shelly declared the bill was outrageous, because bis pre vious bills had been at least one-halt les» when be used more gas and he tendered the company $10 in payment. The cor I poration refused to accept and then shut off his gas. Thus, a citizen secured his rights by legal appeal, and a corporation was re quired to yield to the majesty of the law. Plainly, the corporations are not yet hold ing up the country by the tail. The Passing of Jerome. A few months ago William Travers Jerome was a groat public figure. Poli tically ho was merely the district attorney of New York county, seeking re-election at the hands of the citizens; but morally he was the champion of a great principle— the right of the people to retain the ser vices of a faithful public officer when the political powers refused him the grace of a partisan nomination. And the people won by re-electing Jerome without the aid of party organizations. But since the election Jerome has be come a personal and official nonentity. So far as he is concerned he might as well have been defeated at the November election. He seems to have gone into retirement. Forgotten are his pledges to the people; forgotten, apparently, are the official duties devolving upon him. The press of New York City calls him to his duty, hut he responds only by insti tuting a libel suit against one paper for making what he conceives to bo false charges against him. What's the mutter with Jerome ? Expensive Economy. On Tuesday afternoon the House of Representative«, according to a note of u Washington correspondent, spent an hour and a quarter in discussing a point of order raised during the consideration of an item in an appropriation bill which aought to increase tho salary of a coal weigher from 8720 to $820 a year. Finally, the proposed increase was defeated. Thus the government saves 8100 a year in its salary expenditures, but it is pointed out by the correspondent that the time devoted to tho consideration of this item cost the government as least $1,000. Now, this expenditure may be covered in ten years of the present salary of the coal weigher, hut as the probabilities are that he will get the desired increase at another session in tbe near future, most of this $1,000 will be a dead loss. It is no wonder wo are a "billion dollar government," when we spend a thousand dollars in saving a hundred. The Methodist Episcopal Conference justly denounced the manner in which tho temperance people wore swindled over the matter of local option legisla tion at the last session of tho Delaware legislature, but it would have lieen liettcr had the names of the faithless legislators been mentioned. This would have de veloped the fact that some ante-election promises in favor of local option made by Union Republicans. In fact, in one district the temperance element made an ante-election compact with this delectable political organization, only to be swindled in the end, which probably served them right, anti was only what they might have expected. WIMC The application for permission to lay a railroad track across Front street is stiil slumbering in tho Street and Sewer De partment records. Perhaps it would be us well to bring it up and dispose of it by negative action. The directors of the department know now, with respect to this petition, that to grant it would be to give Front street entirely over to railroad cross tracks, to the enormous damage of vehicular traffic of all kinds. Judge J. Otis Humphrey of the United Stales District Court of Chicago haa de cided (hat the licet packers who dieted last year on charges of conspiracy in restraint of interstate trade are not liable. The law, he holds, applies to continuions only, and not to individual members thereof. Whereat the offending packers smiled and skipped out of court. It will now bo in order for this learned judge to determine how the penalty of imprisonment, provided by the law, may be visited upon corporations. were m The judiciary committee of the House of Representatives has reported against the Insurance Regulation bill, on the ground that this is a business which the general government cannot regulate.

Uanlorta,Second and Maiket streets.* ri'i n 1» John Edwtgrd O'Sullivan Addicks after e meeting of the Union Republican Stale Committee gave an interview in which he mules that no member of the General Assembly can lie elected from Kent or Sussex unless be is an Addicks man first, last and all the time. His boast may or may not prove to have foundation, but logically he is entitled to the support of the dominant party in the two lower counties. The voters there accepted his leadership when that was frankly based upon a distribution of boodle. His motives, principles and policies were never ques tioned; there was no act hut that received a defence from the masses; and since he has not changed a whit, and since success bus followed his banner in the two lower counties, he is entitled to expect the full sup)s)rt of the party he created, at the next election. <!i Certain of his lieutenants, however, are now willing to admit privately that Ad dicks is a man they can no longer recog nize, and hint at the necessity of selecting for the party leader a man who is held in higher esteem socially. Their views regarding Mr. Addicks have apparently undergone a change since Senator Allee broke from his allegiance and let it bo understood that Addicks had forfeited the'Presidential favor and, besides, was a financial wreck. Now the Union Re publicans will hardly admit that they nave followed Addicks for the sole pur pose of bleeding him. and as for his in tegrity, socially and in business, that has lieen understood for years; therefore. Mr. Addicks has a right to count on the sup port he has always received- unless, in deed. his former adherents arc willing to proclaim flatly that corruption money is the chief quality in leadership. Mr. Addicks says that at the proper time he will control the Union Republi can committee, as the members are all under obligations to him. It probably depends upon the nature of these obli gations. If they are of such a nature that they call for the cash, then un doubtedly he can control the committee. But if they are mere matters of honor, he will lind how lasting is the gratitude that is purchased at the cost of dishonor. But there is a class of votera in Kent and Sussex that it is well for all parlies to notice. There arc thousands who never touched a dollar of corruption .money and who have yet acted with the majorit party. They money was being used, but justified if l were aware that muc on the ground I liât, it was necessary to beat the Democrats. These men are now almost solidly behind Addicks, and he to call for their supjiort he would get it. They reason' very plausibly, that if Addirks was g< is good enough What kind of answer are the Regular Republicans going to make to the Unit D iosiil of harmony ? ■ Four years ago er similar circumstances they might have answered somewhat as follows: "Owing to the political practices of your party, your corrupt leadership, the ex tent of bribery at elections practiced by you and your utter disregard of funda mental Republican principles, we refuse to affiliate with you and wo despise your vaunted majority obtained by corruption " But will they say that now ? Not mueh. And who is responsible for their inability to say it ? Now assuming that the reply is to be non-aceepiance and it is to lie convincing, let us deal in further surmises. Suppose that in effect it. is a demand that the Union Republicans as a preliminary harmony shall live up to I heir past agree ments, will not this load up to awkward questions ? What agreement ? An agreement to elect a New Castle Regu lar Senator. Who made that agreement. ? What was the consideration ? Ought an were id enough in the past he now. m to (■me agreement when there was a corrupt con sideration l»e carried out ? It appears that the Regular Republican leaders by their conduct in the last campaign have nut it beyond their power to make an honest reply to Union Republican over lures. If the great Methodist church of this State lives up to the resolutions adopted at I he recant conference there will he an upheaval, a houseeleaning and a general purification of our politics. And the church does not' have to mix in politics to do it. If the clergy unitedly will de mand of the laity that they refrain from corrupt practices at elections and do their duly as citizens to maintain pure elections, bribery will disappear. Not only the con ference itself, but the presiding bishop, expressed profound horror for a system under which the voters in masses are bought at the polls. Some party defender lips said that the condition is not as bad ati it has lieen painted, but these preacher« oven though they do not delve into fiolities, know that it is much worse than it has ever lieen represented. Wc know that whole communities have made their pastors understand that an attack on political corruption would lie un jiopiilur and would not be tolerated, and m a measure one can understand the dilemma of the preacher. Ho does not want to stir up strife, to alienate a part of his congregation and to engage in con troversy. But now the clergy have their duties outlined by an authoritative liodv, and to refuse to oliey would lie insubordi nation. So Dr. ( aloh Rodney Layton is to have ■ reward. It is asserted I lust he is to he made first auditor of the treasure. What for? The President haa repeatedly expressed his views as to the kina of men the public service should command.

It seems a pretty stiff price to pay for a bit of revenge. We wonder wliether Mr. Handy and other anti-negro orators will open up the old line of oratory in the next camimign. But with the incom petency of young Rustles proved and ad mitted. the Democratic councilman are occupying at present an indefensible po sition. for it is no longer a question of polities but of paying out of the public treasury money to a clerk who does no work and who is incapable of doing it.

CURRENT LITERATURE, To the woman of fashion the April De lineator will be more than welcome, for it contains an array of Attractive g that will enable her to select and in her own homo everything necessary for any occasion. Apart from matters qf style, there arc two stories by well-known writers: "The Might of Jim Charles," by Albert Bigelow Paine, and "The Stolen Speech," by Joseph A. Altsheler. In the latter,love and politics arc equally blended and the hero only wins the (tassage of the school bill for which he is fighting, but the girl who spurs him on. A new series that is sure to please many is "Famous Ameri can Songs," and in this number of the magazine the author, Gustav Kohbe, tells of that song of the homesick, "Old Folks at Home." An American lady's house keeping experiences in Morocco—the band of the Brigands—will prove interesting reading, but it is doubtful if many will care to transport themselves and their families to that lawless country. "Portia," the noble heroine of Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice," is the subject of a clever sketch by Dorothy Donnelly, based on her own impersonation of the character. To the many good things usually provided for the children, two exceptionally bright stories have been added; and for the busy woman in the home everything pertaining to the inner working of the household is touched on in the various departments. arment a develop In the April American Magazine, Julian Willard Helburn has an article of unusual siguilicance on "Light : the Great Civilizer.' ' In telling of the revolution which has been wrought, in history by the steady light, Mr. Helburn makes a point which has never been touched upon by anyone—not even by college professors in their courses on the history of economics. There arc a number of other extremely interesting articles. Henry K. Webster tells the story of the Chicago Traction Tangle under the caption, Dunne," and John McAuley Palmer writes satirically on the Block System, in "A Speculation in Manslaughter." This month the American Magazine retains its lead in things photographic by a splendid scries of portraits ot I lie Justices ot the Supreme Court of the United Stales. Among the fiction writers are Mary < holmondeley, Holman F. Day, Crieff Da Dell, Mrs. L. 1*1. Harris, Frank N. Uralgio Una Hudson aud Ellis Parker Butler. From Y'erkes to The April Lippincott 's contains a fine showing of fiction,fact and fun. As usual there is the opening complete novelette, " The Battlo ol the Fools," by Samuel Merwin. It is the story of a big railroad light in which a man wins out, not exactly single-handed, however, as there is a woman "behind the gun." Mr. Merwin was inspired to do this through a struggle waged by a well-known corporation, aud this adds convincing realism to his rattling good plot. maid" Inis to do with a "Circus Lady" and a Westerner whoso heart is big and w arm. The name of its author, Gay Bent ley Wuerpel. is hound to become hotter known. " The Candy Boy aud His Little Love," by Harriet Boyer, is a love story, tender and sweet. "The Mettle of Mr. Matthews" is a rarely good story of an evangelistic meeting, a hauk cashier, and his wife. Its author is Walter Barr. Adele Marie Shaw has done clever work, but nothing letter than "The Foolishness of Stephen," a charming humorous country story of love and coquetry. "A Woman Hie t'owbov and the Mer Scorned," by Lucy Onpmger, begins a series of rhild-skelehes, each one complete in itself, taken from tho humorous side of school life in a largo city, and the pathos of it all makes the best sort of Immun stories. Ella Middleton Tyhom con tributes an amusing episode called Green Bottle." in which is shown the effect of a loo vivid imagination. "An April Fool's Paradise,"by Edith Morgan Willett, in telling how a man's April Fool joke on another man rebounded on himself, may contain a warning to lovers. Art and the spring of the year are closely allied. Hence a paper on "Dogas" from the pen of Marie Van Vorat is significant as well as illumi native to all w ho love licauty in any form. "A Widow in the Washington Poatiifficc," by Col. Willard French, is an entertaining account of a day s Imppeiiings.go anecdot ic that it seems like fiction. The poets who appear in tho current Lippincott'» are Alice E. Alien, EDa Barker, Hurry Torsey Baker, Minna Irving, Will McCourtic and Silas X. Floyd. 'The humorous depart ment, "Walnuts and Wine," deserves the praise so lavishly bestowed upon it for its good cheer. The COMMENTS ON A FAILURE. Delaware State Newcw The failure of Evans & Co., tho Wil mington bankers, seems to be a pretty unfortunate job. Very heavy debt«, very trifling assets. Many comparatively poor people have probably had their savings in whole or part swept away in a manner that looks at least to a layman very much like fraud, and obtaining money under false pretences. It is not, however, supposed that there will be any criminal prosecutions. If a poor man in Wilmington had stolen a sack of flour to feed his hungry children he would bo doing servit« at Greenbank in short order. Rut losing, or as it may be stealing a hundred or two hundred thou-! sand dollars of money placed in one 's hands for investment is another tiling. The difference seems to lie in the size of the plunder pile and as to whether or not it was used in high living and accumulation, or consumed in bare want and necessity.
