FROM DELAWARE TkU I« What "The Searchlight" Think« Of A Delaware Senator In striking contrast with some of his more famous and more notorious col leagues, Harry Richardson, of Dela ware, stands out, in some respects, the strongest and weakest member of the United States Senate. He is strongest in that he really represents all the peo ple of his State. With possibly three exceptions this is true of no other member of ' the most exclusive club in America." He is strongest in that he is under no obligations for favors re ceived and he is strongest because he has no anxiety about favors to come. He is weakest because he cannot com mand die attention of the world by making bloody-shirt speeches, by play ing the demagogue, by joining cliques to obtain results or by getting his pic ture in the newspapers with a certifi- ' cate of deposit serving as a frame. ; With a manner most retiring—a voice soft and low and a personal presence not at all striking, Senator' Richardson, lgke the best dressed man in a throng passes unnoticed. He entered the Sen ate the same day that Jett Davis made his appearance. Davis declared him self, demanded his and séYved notice that he was ready to meet all comers, ,n, e ,r in H d the a,Kl he wal u td quick. He was the big noise in Wash ington for a week and he lias never been beard from or heard of since, Harry Richardson expressed no pre ferences, voiced no prejudices, took what was offered him and, by some sin gular coincidence got about all the things Davis wanted but could not get. Unis in every walk of life Harry Rieh ardson aserts himself and his great strength with the resolute courage of a man who knows and with the quiet dignity of a gentleman who respects the rights of those who cannot en force them. It was characteristic of Harrv Rich ardson to place his resignation at the disposal Of his friends in Delaware whin his illness kept him away from the Capitol during the Tariff debate. It takes a very strong man to offer, in good faith, to relinquish a seat in the United States Senate upon call Roscoe Conkling and loin Platt did it and bitterly regretted the step—both being retired forthwith by their con stituents. The Senator front Dela I The pepole of Delaware will s ' ie ware, who should write him name Harryrichardson, to conform to the colloquial pronunciation, took no chance.

"Ask anybody from Delaware," is the trade slogan of the house <;" Richardson and Robbins, and this invi tation fo inquire means precisely what it says. More than a million dollars have been spent in sending this evi dence of good faith around the world. Imagine such an invitation being ex tended by the big, earry-everylhing, sell-everything, fool-evcrybody ware houses where the refuse of legitimate trade finds quick outlet and where the public becomes rich in experience Impossible. In the four corners of the world, in Hong Kong, in the Trans !* j vaal. in Sitka, in Melbourne, in camp, in home and wherever men and women meet to eat there the personal ranty of Harry Richardson stands hitrh above any pure tod law. He has made the output of his great plant with his own Hands, he has served it in his own home and lie would not permit the most lowly cow puncher on the range take a chance his label. ar with anything bearing When Harry Richardson bids the world "ask anybody from Delaware' he means that they shall ask about him. his business, his home, his credit, and above all other things the product of his plant, which was es- I tablished by his father. | When a lad of 16 lie was given his choice between a job in tile factory of Richardson & Robbins at $1.50 a week The 1 Tough as was the factory job he preferred it to Greek j and Mathematics.

Eighteen years later the burden of the great business fell upon his shoulders entirely—his father pased or a complete college education, boy went t< work. away. Some years ago the T Tst National Bank of Dover was looted by William H. Boggs, its cashier. Harry Rich ardson was then, as now, president ol the institution. 'The amount stolen was equal to the total deposits and there was some impairment of capital. Early on the morning of the day that the report of the robbery was con firmed half the population ol Dover was in front of the bank prepared to demand ait that was theirs. Richardson piessed his way through the crowd and front the steps of the bank made his first, last and only speech, saying: "1 would like you to go away from here and give us titre to straighten out this matter, i will see that you get all of your money. There will be no de lay in settlement. The money must be brought here from Philadelphia, and until it comes we must ask you to be patient." "Are you going to stand back of the bunk, Hany?" an old man asked. "With every dollar I have." "There ain't no need to send to' Philadelphia for money then. We all can wait." The crowd moved away. The bank was opened oA time and no person ever lost a penny unless it was Harry Rich ardson, who never discusses the mat ter.

The whole Commonwealth was debauched by one or another of the contenders for the seat in the' Senate which Harry Richardson now places at the disposal of his friends and more than $5.000,000 was spent in cor rupting the political morals of the community but despite all this Harry Richardson was elected to the Senate without tile improper use of a dollar in a community which it is generally believed that the legal right to vote carries with it the moral right to bar ter and trade in votes.
