At present them is a decided tendency in this city towards the addition of small front porches to the many houses that at the time of their erection were not provided with these useful appendages. The houses front on the building line, but the porches am constructed with a width of four feet only, which brings them out to the level of the ordinary front steps, and therefore they do not lake up any more mom on the sidewalks than the steps do. That they am a very consider able addition to the buildings, in the way of providing summer comfort to the in mates, is a manifest fact. There is a reason for this activity in •mall front porches. The Street and fewer Department, several years ago, enacted an ordinance forbidding the addition of such porches when they ex tended four feet Iteyond the building line. PsrtKS who violated this reatrirtion . a . 24 . 1.25 M* »7 , «9" 10 17 . ?.fi7 a "1 were arraigned in Municipal Court, a few weeks ago, but wem discharged tt)ion the contention of their counsel that the right to construct four-foot porches was granted by an ordinance of the Borough Council a century or mom ago, and that in repeal ing this ordinance the Street and Sewer Department failed to give a week's notice of the repealing ordinance, as required by the city charter. This contention was held to be sound by the court, and pend ing the re-enact nient of a prohibitory ordinance in a regular and legal manner, people am rushing ahead and adding porches to their houses wherever they find it possible to do » 0 . The small porches thus added to houses built upon tho building line may not be regarded as an architectural adornment, hut it cannot be denied that they prove a great convenience. To many people a front porch is a necessary appurtenance of a dwelling. Those who have tasted the conveniences and delights of a front porch in summer time will not live in u porcbless house if they can avoid it. Throughout the heated season the front porch is a joy and a comfort Iteyond the power of words to express, and it would prove a aad deprivation to many people to lie prohibited from adding even tho insignificant four-fool appendages to once their dwellings when the limitation of the building line will not permit of an addi tion of larger proport ion». It will be well for the Street and Sewer Department, therefore, to seriously eider, now that the subject is an open one, whether tho prohibition of small porches extending only four-feet Iteyond the building line should lie made aliso lute. Of course, along business thorough fan» they would prove an obstruction and should not be tolerated. But is them any reason why they should not lie per mitted on residence streets where the booses have been built on tho line, and porche« are not available without a •mall enrroaehment upon the sidewalk ? It is argued in favor of these (torches that as they extend only as far os the line of tho step» at the front doors, they no more of a sidewalk obstruction than are the steps. Indeed, in the light of obst motion they may lie heb I as second to the steps. For the latter frequently prove an obstacle that pedestrians stumble over on a dark night, while the porch, by extending along the entire front of tho building, does not constitute such an abrupt and awkward extrusion upon the sidewalk. The rush to get these small porches in shape before a prohibitory law can he enacted is proof of thetr popularity. eon are an The people want them. They are not much of a porch, it is true, but they far better than no porch at all. They are not hideous, even if they are not beautiful, and they are no more of a side walk obstruction than are the ordinary front steps. Let serious consideration be given before it is decreed that the little front porch shall flourish no longer Business conditions throughout ISOS are reviewed in the annual report of the New ^ ork City Chamber of Commerce, just issued.

The body of the Protestant Episcopal Church of Delaware, as represent..d in if» Annual Convention at Dover, yesterday, voiced its onphatic conde mnation of th crime of election bribery' in this State, and its cordial indorsement of the purpose of the Anti-Brilxry league of DUaware to make a vigorous and practical campaign for reform. This is the third church l*ody of the IKhiwarc Peninsula to take an emphatic stand m favor of tin. anti-bribery move ment, The Wilmington Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, the first body to tract this year, spoke in no uncertain tones in expressing its condem nation of the election evil and its sym pathy tvith the movement for reform. The New Castle Presbytery, the next in order to assemble, was also emphatic and unmistakable in its declarations and sympathies. Hishop Monaghan of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington warmly commended the movement. , And no«' the Annual Convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church participates in this co-operation of the vital forces of the Christian Church in support of a move ment designed to free elections in this State from the curse of bribery and cor ruption which for years has made them a shame to honest men. In the course of his address at the Diocesan Convention, yesterday. Bishop Coleman repeated what he had said upon a similar occasion, three years before, in relation to this subject, and hi» remark» are ao forceful and go to the mot of the matter ao convincingly, that it would be well for every worker in the good cause to commit them to memory and apply them ns a sound precept upon every possible occasion. "A man must he made to feel," said Bishop Coleman, "that what he would be ashamed to do in his business and social relations, he is equally afraid and ashamed to do in politics. He is not to be allowed to use his church mem bership as a cloak under whose protecting folds he may bo guilty of all manner of de ceit and fraud. A corruptionist is not really a Democrat or a Republican; but is simply a hypocritical criminal who, in his greed and dishonesty, is grossly violating the principles which he pro fesses to uphold." , Duty of Democrats. Referring to the probable attitude of the Democratic member» of tho General Assembly during the special aeasion that has been called for tho purpose of enabling the Republican party to complete the sale of the Senatorahip, "Democratic Glasses" in tho Sunday Star says; "The Democrats have resolved to keep hands off in tho extra session. This may bo wiae or it may not. Glasses thinks it makes no difference, one way or the other, unless, indeed, the moral effect of a silent protest counts for something. It is an exclusively Republican function, and it is fitting that Republicans should manage it. The State baa no interests of great importance at stake and Demo crat» therefore are not violating any duty. They must, of course, attend, and, having done that, their duty is done," This is a very practical and sensible statement of the Democratic situation, but not to be accepted as an absolute rule. The real Democratic duty may unfold aa the session progresses. As a general line of conduct it will he well for the Demo cratic members of the legislature to adhere to a policy of non-participation,as a protest against tho unwarrantable im position upon the people of a costly legis lative session for the sole purpose of set tling a disgraceful squabble over a public office. In this they will he justifiable. But circumstances may arise where Democratic participation would bo ad visable. Democratic members may pro pose some measure of wise and proper legislation -euch as the repeal of the abominable Voter's Assistant law, for instance and in this event it would lie their duty to endeavor to secure its en actment. Also, should some Repub lican member propose appropriate and desirable measures, it might not he good policy for the Democrats to refrain from giving them approval. Such a situa tion, however, is »0 improbable that it is not worth consideration at this time. But. almvo all, the Democratic mem bers should make protest against the gross injustice ol the special session in every manner possible. The nomination of ex-Mayor Edwin 8. Stuart of Philadelphia as tho Republi can candidate for governor of Pennsyl vania appears, on the surface, like a very shrewd political move on the part of Senator Penrose. Stuart stands ls»th personally and politically, in Phila delphia, has no serious entanglements, and is likely lo command the approval of President Roosevelt. Whether he will prove a winner or not, it is pretty sure that Penrose, by nominating Sfuait, has secured the indorsement of the national administration. re II. In its municipal government the city of Cleveland, Ohio, is a very independ ent community. The political senti ment of its people on national affairs is largely Republican, but they h»\e elected and re-elected Tom L. Johnson, a prominent Democrat, to the mayoralty because he gives them good administra tion. In doing this Cleveland sets admirable example to every other city the country, particularly to the city of Wilmington. We have distressing need for a Mayor Johnson here. There are Republican politician* in Kent county who would dearly love to get Harry A. Richardson into the Sena torial contest. But the probabilities are that too many Addiok* Republican« have been coralled by the du Pont leaders. If enough of the latter could be drawn lo Richardson to nomination on the first ballot there would not be the slightest doubt of his nomina tion; but unfortunately for him. there is little prospect of more than one ballot. Election bribery received two black rye« at Dover, yesterday—from the Episcopal Convention snd from the anti-Sunday trains meeting The latter gathering was not confined exclusively to a protest against traveling on the Sab bath. r: in prevent a The Coqt of Living. In the course of his address at the dinner of the Reform Club, in New York City, last Saturday night, ex-Govcrnor Douglas of Massachusetts said: "The cost of living has gone up so much more than wages that the wage earner is now worse off than ho was in 1807. Our wage earners are working hard and won dering what is wrong. They find it harder to live comfortably. No other question In fore tiie public means half as much to the ordinary man a» does tha tariff question. All the other grafts com bined do not equal the annual graft of the tariff the continuous robbery of the people und.r the cover of th. protective tariff law. When the consumers under stand that the tariff laws are taking un necessarily from the (leople's pockets not lens than $30 a year per family and turning the proceeds over to the trusts they will make short work of such laws. Every article of fixai, clothing and shelter is tariff taxed. Even the rents of buildings are about 10 per cent higher because of the tariff on building materials. 1. for one, want to do what I can to rail atten tion to the sin of our tariff system, I favor legislation that will give no man more because it gives no one less than a square deal." But there is no "square deal" in the protective tariff. Favored manufacturers profit by it to such an extent that they are enabled to squeeze from home con sumers prices much higher than those at which they sell their surplus products at a profit in foreign markets; but a system of taxation which enables him to do this is anything but square to the homo con sumer. The latter are swindled the term is not a whit too severe—by the unfair proceeding. How this operates is known by every man in the country who has been em ployed on a salary for the past twenty yeara. If his wage is the same today aa it was then, he is poorer by reason of the increased cost of living, due to higher prices for the necessities of life. If he is receiving higher wages, he is not pros pering in proportion to his Increased earning capacity, for thg siunf reason. And if ha is so unfortunate as to be re ceiving lower wages, then indeed is he in a bad way. The wage earners are the special vic tims of the protective tariff, because the great bulk of their earninga is laid out in the cost of living. And when that cost is increased by the operations of the pro tective tariff they have a right to demand that the exorbitant taxes lie abolished. The Oregon Election. The result of the election in Oregon, on Monday, is such as to give comfort to Democrats and also to tariff "stand patters" of tho Republican party. Which parly will have the larger occasion for rejoicing, however, will not he apparent until the complete returns are at hand, so that they may he intelligently com pared with tho results of previous con tests. Governor Chamberlain, a Democrat, who was twice elected by pluralities con siderably less than 1,000, has been elected once more by a plurality that may reach 2,100. This is the result from which the Democrats will derive satis faction and encouragement, although it may with more propriety be looked tipon ns a triumph for good State government, Governor Chamberlain's administration having been conspicuous for excellent service to the people. The Republican tariff "standpatters" will rejoice at the election of a legislature which will send a Republican to the I'nited Slates Senate and at the return of two Republicans to Congress. Here is where the matter of majority may figure largely. At the election of 1904, Her mann and Williamson, Republicans, were elected to Congress by 6,000 and 15,000, respectively, a total majority of 21,000 in the State. Neither was renominated, as both were smirched by scandals which compelled the party to name new men for their places. This situation may have had some effect upon the voters, but a large reduction from tho generous majorities given to Hermann and Wil liamson two years ago cannot be regarded in any other light than an indication of a revolt among tho Republican voters in favor of tariff reform. Unimpaired or larger majorities, of course, would he solid comfort to the tariff "standpatters," but present indications are that this treat will be denied them. Oregon, evidently, is les» Republican today than she was two years ago. re While Bishop Coleman is among those who oppose Sunday trains in Delaware, it is a matter of record that he is not a stranger to railroad trains on Sundays in other Stales and has made numerous notable journeys and close train connec tions in keeping Sunday church engage ment» on the same day in localities some what widely separated. Evidently, when the good bishop uses Sunday trains in doing tho Lord's work he does not de spise I he vehicle he employs. We have no disposition to belittle any movement that claims a good purpose, but the reflection is inevitable that the attempt to suppress Sunday traffic on railroads and trolley lines which was inaugurated at Dover, yesterday, is de cidedly Quixotic. The doughty Spanish knight who tilted against windmills was about as practical in his campaign as are those who. in these modern days, at tempt to resist the natural trend of the conditions of human life. In its present hour of filthy and dis gusting trials the Beef Trust has no friends. It has heen a selfish eomiorant which oppressed the people to the bottom of their stomachs, so that they have no room for any "bowels of com passion" for the rapacious and now dis tressed organization. A suicidal epidemic seems to he sweep ing throughout the country, and among its victims are people of wealth and good position, whose lines seemed to have fallen in pleasant places. But some thing was amiss with them. 11 COMMENTATOR. Political comment in this Stall for some years has been confined aiment ex cluaively to Republican politics, pot ha pa for the reasonf that there has 1 ten no other kind 'worth mentioning The Republican parly lias been in the aa eendency and therefore hu» rinne things to occasion comment. Then, too, the factional quarrel has made u great deal of news, and this lias become the legiti male subject of discussion. The lac tiunal quarrel seems in a way to be set tled, and viewpd as a game, there is no longer any reason for two Republican patties. The spirit and leadetship of one faction is the same which rules the other. From a tight, ostensibly one of principle, there has been a degeneracy until almost frankly both sides admit that they are engaged in a political game in which there are no principles of ethics, not even of good faith. Neither of the Republican organiza tions represents the best sentiment of the great, mass of Republicans of Dela ware. For ao many years have the volera been under committee rule that if has come to bo usual and is acquiesced in; but no real it greatly likes it. in the past Addicks, Alice, Layton and one or two other persons in a Philadel phia hotel have decided upon candidate» and policies for the mass of 1'nion Re publican tas been made that a handful of men meeting on Delaware avenue have (per formed the sameservice for the Regular Republicans, literally true, and when the lime came for adjustment of a common ticket not even the two Stale committees did it, but sub-committees consisting of from three to five persons from each faction. In this manner our candidates have been chosen and our platforms written, and the voter was told that it was Republi canism and must, be supported by Re publicans on pain of excommunication. man who contemplates It ha* been Raid that voters. The counter (barge Both statements are Party organs and campaign speakers laud our institutions and profess great concern for tho rights and wishes ol the masses, but they know that the dose .which is fixed up for the voters to swallow is brewed in a private conference in which only a few professionals are present. It is inconceivable that this state of affairs will be tolerated forever, yet signs of effective protest are lacking. Certainly there is a considerable element which has been identified with the Regular Re publican parly which is dissatisfied; they experienced a qualm when their ticket named in 1904 was revised with out their consent and without con sultation with them. They be came supporter» of Col. Henry A. du Pont when that gentleman was put forward as the champion of the cause of clean politics. No man ever had more loyal tollowers; defeat d(d not dampen their ardor, and the dearth of rewards did not unnerve them. If ever men waged a fight for principle in politics, these Regular Republicans were the men. But there came a time when new counsels prevailed. It was assumed that this following could be handed over to any candidate and made to espouse any set of principles. And the power of habit, the sentiment attached to tlie party name, and the absence of any attractive alternative led most of them into sup port of a ticket made up by a half dozen men, and to follow the banners of men that politically they had despised. But when they cast their ballots they did not know all. They were not aware til! later that alongside of the honest ballot they had cast lay another ballot that was corrupt. They did not learn till later that the great victory which was assured on election night was se cured, not through their loyalty so much as through the lavish use of money at the rolls. There are probably 10,000 Republican voters in Del who would vote for any ticket on any platform labeled Republican, and with out direct consideration. There are at least 8,000 that demand money and the rest are the good citizens who' want to do the right thing. Their support of the ticket, no matter how reluctantly, f »laces the balance of power ip the mnds of tho corrupt voter, and, there fore, whoever secures control of that element wins. The thoughtful, honest element might hold the balance of power, not by deserting their party, but by sternly and insistently demanding 11 higher plane of decency m the conduct of tho party with which they are affiliated. 1 u 1 • ■ Doc» this element intend to assert itself in the councils of tho Republican parly ? They know the conditions. They know that under the leadership they have trusted, in tho last campaign a great corruption fund was poured into Kent and Sussex. They had expressed horror for corruption at elections, had put themselves to considerable ■ incon venience lo fight it; in certain instances they had braved unpopularity and had even suffered in business for the faith that was in them. Then they beheld Union Republican leaders traveling to Kent and Sussex with satchels of cor ruption money furnished by Regular Republican leaders in Wilmington. The question is ,what arc these honest Re publicans going to do in the future 7 Are they going to revise their morals be cause a new leader from Kentucky bids them ? If formerly they were Republi cans then they are something else now unless they shall succeed in bringing the party back to its moorings. To m»ke this unpleasant story com plete something more ought to fe said. There is the lame defence that the money spent in the Iasi campaign was con tributed for general expense» -that the donor» had no precise knowledge of the pnrpos® f° r which it was to be used. But such can hardly be the case when it is susceptible of proof that certain minor politicians made frequent trips mington with schedules of the floaters in the various districts and the amount required for each! In view of a knowl edge of these facts, one can smile serenely when the epithet "traitor" is hurled at him because he protests. to Wil Where i* the honest Republican voter to find hi* solution? First, in assert ing himself in the councils and the pri maries of the party, demanding not necessarily ideal conditions, but condi tions that do not shock bis sense of dc "•ency. Next, he has a magnificent op in the Anti-Bribery League, its instrumentality he can com port unity Through (id both parties to observe the laws and to cease making election« a farce. This is simply applying the whip to those who deserve it. regardless of politics. It has heen suggested that the league will likely number more Democrats among its member* than Republicans Indeed, we have read insinuations that its purpose is to assist the Democratic parly. This is a double-edged argu ment. It will not do for Republicans to sav that lo defeat bribery will injure the Republican party, and' if it shall transpira that Republicans generali v hold aloof from this movement it will be a serious reflection on the political ideals of the members of that party in general. If men generally placed their citizen ship above their pa-rty; if they were pro foundly interested in the future of their State, in keeping her name clean, thev would sec in the Anti-Bribery League hi golden opportunity, liiere should he 10,000 men willing to stand forth and «ay ''corruption at the polls must cease, If not 10.(100, then 5,000. 'But if there are only a hundred such men then these hundred will give an accounting nt the next election, But there have been many excuses. Some don't like the lorm of the pledge Very well; it is proposed to ask simply that persons in sympathy with clean elections shall give their names to that sentiment only, Sonic object to the ofttrers of the association. Ihal. too. ran be remedied: any officer will be pleased (o step down and work in the ranks the moment a worthy successor has been secured. The league proposes to make it very plain that it is non-partisan, and that it propose» to treat all viola tions of our election laws alike, high or low. Republican or Democrat, proposes to recruit its members under a statement of creed which can cause no honest man to wince; and before the next campaign is over the men in both parties who are actually opposed to bribery will he discovered. Then it And in conclusion be it known that Commentator proposes to pay scant at tention to epithets » hat tome from mouths not shaped for arguments. Cor rections of misslatemenls are invited, real arguments welcomed; hut these things are true or false, wise or unwise, regardless of the handfuls of mud which may come in this direction.
