PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY AT N. E. COR. FIFTH AND 8HIPLEY STS. BY THE EYERYJ^EMNG PRINTING COMPANY PRICE $1 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE WILMINGTON, THURSDAY, JULY 30 What Koch Has Done. Professor Koch, whose lymph cure for incipient consumption attracted much attention a few monthB ago, is ported to have resigned the dignities with which the German government had profusely endowed him, and his resig nation is interpreted as a renunciation of honors which he does not feel that he has fairly earned. If this be correct it does honor to Professor Koch's con scientiousness, since these dignities came to him unsolicited and it was never announced by him that his lymph would accomplish all that his friends and admirers claimed for it. So that, if it has failed as a remedial agent, Koch himself is not at fault, for he protested all the way through against making claims that had not been verified by conclusive test. And, if ho has not succeeded of be a a in so in discovering at least a prophylactic against tubei culosis, Professor Koch has done the world great service by directing the attention of the medical world to this important branch of pathology with •earnestness and determination that there is good reason to hope will yet lead to great results. Ono of the foremost perimenters in this field, Dr. Lannelogue, a distinguished French surgeon, has cently communicated to the Academy of Medicine, a tion with chloride of zinc which prom . ises to be useful in at least arresting the progress of some forms of tuberculosis. It is not stated how this inoculation is accomplished, but it is presumed that it must be made through the veins, and that the substance, used gradually, reaches the ulcers in the lungs through the blood. Dr. Lannalogue does not claim the discovery of a new curative agent, since experiments with some form of zinc have been made before, but he says that his "method of , with an infal or it a of method of inocula application is quiet lible antiseptic euro, destroying, •athcr paralyzing tho action of the ba cillus and reducing its effects to a nul lity." Simultaneously, Dr. Godfrey Hambleton, an English physician, pro fesses to have discovered which consumption method by be prevented, ^ N »i\d even cured, in cases where tho dis ease has not made too much progress. While these and other claims may prove delusive, they go to show that men who stand high in medical science are labor ing strenuously to find a remedy for this fearful scourge, and to Professor Koch will be largely due the credit for blazing the way if their investigations should result successfully in the end. Baltimore is growling prospec tive discrimination against the Monu mental city in the matter of placing subsidized steamship lines. Only two mail routes at most will go out of Balti . says a newspaper of that city, while eight have been named to start from Newport News. Tho latter is a little port on tho northern shore of the James river, a few miles within its mouth, which acquired some strategical . Its proximity to the sea may be a valid reasc giving it the preference over Baltimore, just as the comparatively small town of Milford Haven may be chosen in lieu of Liverpool for the British terminus of a prospective five-days transatlantic route. But the Baltimore real reason for assigning valuable mail routes unless it is assumed firm or firms have as good to celebrity during the for paper sees many to ono point, that some promised Mr. Wanamaker that they will build ships, and thus secure immediate and tangible results to the postal subsidy scheme," and Huntingdon is the capatalist of the second part, argues that "the inevitable conclusion is that the government has virtually sold out the ocean-carrying business to a few capitalists"—"a view of the mlng that Mr. C.

The Democratic idea is that tho millionaire manufacturer ought to be ashamed to pass round the hat for the poor cratic idea is a tariff for revenue and for protection; but of course with a war debt, a $110,000,000 pension list constanly growing, and a billion-dollar Reed Congress, it is futile to talk of re alizing that idea. We must raise the bulk of our national revenue by import duties for years to come— receipts for the fiscal year 30th, 1890, -were $229,608,584, nearly a hundred millions of dollars in excess of the sum mentioned by John Sherman when he said : "To talk about a pro tective tariff is unnecessary, because the wit of a tariff that would produce $140,000,000 in gold without amply protecting every domestic industry."

The Demo customs ending June could not possibly frame Among tho illustrations in last week's Scientific American is ono of local in terest—"The lengthening of the Vol unteer"—tho second Wilmington-built champion of tho wave; the Mischief, which held the America's cup up to the Puritan-Genesta race, being the first. The Volunteer, tho Priscilla and the Mischief, knows, York papers have a way of forgetting or ignoring this. The Scientific Ameri cut represents the Volunteer on the ways at a Boston yard undergoing transformation into a schooner. To this end her hull is being lengthened by building in amidships an additional section of 20 feet. Tho Volunteer was pre3sly built to defend tho cup against the British champion Thistle, and everybody knows how success fully she performed that mission. But it takes too large a crew to handle such a sloop for cruising purposes, the schooner rig being preferable. The Mayflower, which won the preceding race with the Galatea, was afterwards changed to a schooner rig; but in her rig she is by no means as fust a vessel as she formerly was. General Paine, the owner of the Volunteer, de cided therefore to lengthen the yacht preparatory to changing her from a sloop to a schooner, so that her original speed may be the less impaired thereby. The original measurements of the Vol unteer were: Length, over all, 106.23 feet; on water line, 85.88 feet; breadth of beam, 23.16 feet; depth of hold, 10.90 feet; tons measurement, 209.0. every Wilmingtonian all built here, hut N The dis to dec of "yellows." which thrent se the splendid crop of K Shore peach«-, now ripening, has afflicted the crops of Delaware for several years, and, to the utter dismay of the scientist« at the United States agricultural department, nothing can be do vent Its r: ..

Such a test, even should the disease be thereby transmitted to Wisconsin trees, would not be conclusive. We have seen a peach tree, a seedling that had never been budded by tho way, isolated in a city yard, growing in ground that had been pasture land for at least a quarter century,and had probably not been cul tivated for double that period, not an infected tree within squares and pos sibly not within a mile; wo have seen a tree under these conditions killed by yellows.

General A. TV. Greely, who speaks with the authority of one who' has "been there," discusses, in the Novem ber Forum , Dr. Nansen's scheme of polar exploration, which he windß up by styling an "illogical scheme of self destruction." Dr. Nansen proposes to build a very strong ship, capable of living in the heavy Arctic pack which he proposes to enter and drift with across or around the pole; a drift of more than 2,000 miles, lasting perhaps two or three years, during which the voyagers would "encamp on and live there while floating across." This programme General Greely regards the bombast of a man who doesn't know what he is talking about. Dr. Nansen, he says, has had no Arctic ser vice; "his crossing of Greenland, how difllcult, is no more polar work than the scaling of Mount St. Elias." His indestructible boat cannot be built; if it wore solid nil the way through it would not withstand the pressure of tho heavy polar pack. Whalers and sealers have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in "building in to a Ice-floe to a of to such lines ns will give tho ship the greatest power of resistance;" a problem Dr. Nansen airily intimates remains to be satisfactorily solved by him. Besides, if ho had his indestructible boat, his transporting ice floe and all other conveniences, General Greely asserts that there i proof of the existence of the favorable currents upon which Dr. Nansen relics for rounding the pole. The drifting of the Jeannette relics to the west coast of Greenland is cited by Dr. Nansen, but General Greely objects that they have never been identified as Jcannette # rellcs; that Captain Melville discredits them, and that it is more reasonable to trace these drift articles to the Proteus, which wrecked in Smith Sound. Finally General Greely believes the pole to be inaccessible by any kind of current. He thinks it most probable that, instead of an open sea, there is an Arctic Ice cap at least 300 miles in diameter and very probably 2,000 feet deep. su fibMerit of by a a W is ns Everybody lias laughed over tho story of the traveling theatrical troupe that played to an audience of one. It was in a small country town, and the manager, looking in during an intermission, asked : "Why, bless my soul, where's the audience V" "He has just stepped ont to get a beer," replied the leader of the orches tra, with unruffled gravity. "Do you think he will return ?" anx iously inquired the manager. "He expresses himself delighted with the play and will undoubtedly return" the response. "Then let the performance go on," re plied the gratified manager. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company had a similar experience last Thursday. The company had advertised to run excursion train of six cars from Balti more to Happy Valley; tickets, $l. Happy Valley is a romantic conglomer ation of precipice and glen, on the eastern shore of the Susquehanna below Port Deposit, wh< rise up sheer 200 feot above the railroad, which is itself well up above the river. The hour came and the train pulled out, according to programme, with excursionist on board who, with six cars at command, certainly had plenty of room. The railroad company took hint up to Happy Valley, where he spent the time very pleasantly. »Some Port Deposit girls, who s to see the train come in, took charge of his entertainment and made his visit to Happy Valley a season to be remem bered.

On Tuesday morning Deputv Coroner Hill, of Kent county, empaneled a jury und wont to the scene of the accident to inquest. But one witness heard ond that was Daniel Watson, who found the body on Monday. According to his ovidence he was the last person to the body alive as ho was at the pier Sunday and saw the unfortunate boy In a boat a short distance from shore, anchored and hulling water out of the craft. As he was leaving the beach he met three young men, Harry Heavalow, John Allen and , going toward the shore, caused the jury to diet until these wit d they and Journal e Saline stateinc with-hold their »es could bo heurd »ned to appear yesterday afternoon at the office of Squire Cullen. The examination of these witnesses was held behind locked doors. The Gazette correspondent attempted to gain admit tance, but was refused. This, however, did not prevent his securing a copy of the evidence given by each of the witnesses. This action of locking the doors excluding the public causes this questi to arise : What business has an investiga tion of a public character, one that the Dublic is interested in. ibis c ■ d especially c as the jury and deputy coroner •knowledge.! before the* hearing that the ought too, causing the peopl foul nlav was suspected, bei did look as clear as it e to think that ing conducted '1 his impression does not now exist, at lea-t is not publicly expressed, since the verdict bus been rendered.

He also spoke of meeting Mr. W at son, thereby corroborating that gentle man s statement of the day before in that particular. The two companions of Allen corroborated his evidence i ticular. Now the question that seemed to baffle the jury was how tho hoy could fall ov board and drown in the short time fr. when Watson saw him alive und well until these three men reached the shore only to find an empty hunt ? The intervening is estimated hy them to ho minutes and some thought one half that time would lullv cover it.

Hanscom, who so cleverly Inveigled Dr. Graves into dangerous admissions iu the Barnabv case, has assumed charge. The first reliable result of this charge is the positive statement that Almy had attempted to assault the girl he after ward killed. This iß proved by the autopsy.
