Next to the aotual oondition of Presi dent MoKinley and the prespeots of his recovery from tho wounds inffioted upon him by an anarchist assassin, the ques tin of greatest interest now beforo the American people is wbat to do with the miserable anarchists that have mado was who this country their favorite abiding place and the hot-bed of their propa ganda. The favorite suggestion is deporta tion ; that it. tbat every resident of this couutry known to be an anarchist be deported to his native country, *ud that ail anarchiste from foreign coun tries who seek to come here be refused admission to any poit of entry. Such a plan would restrict anarchism to citi zens of the United States, and in tbat •vent the number would be mon have in still field that to tho and tion tbat ever in A of ally the and his few that subjection. Proscription is also suggested, and it doubt prove effective. An arohism stands for destruction of all they could easily be kept would law, and should all Who are in favor of a government by law prosoribe tho anarchists, the latter would find it no aany talk to exist. It has been sug gested tbat tbe proscription be made absolute, so that the anarohist should not receive the slightest reoognlti should not be given employment even— at the hands of the law-abiding and law-respeoting people of tbe country. In this event, the anarchints would be compelled to "Hook by themselves" in order to maintain their existence, and Â when so congregated could be dealt with effectively in case they attempted any outbreak. Another suggestion, made by a corre spondent of the New York Evening Post, also bas tbe appearance of effect iveness. That paper had asserted that Ll anarchists "are, to borrow a phrase J. from Burke, outlaws of tbe Uonstitu JP tioo. not qierely of this country, but of ■I tbe human race." "Now," says tbe correspondent, "why not take the an archist at his word, and make him what he says he wishes to be—-outside the law, an outlaw; provided tbat the government which he proposes the de struction of shall,as far as concerns tbe protection of his person and property, be destroyed? Ruch provision could be made in a very simple statute, to the effect that any person proved to have publicly and persistently denied the right of government to exist shall longer receive the protection of gov ernment. Of course, no anarchist is eubject to tbo logic of reason, but many a person blind to tbe logio of reason can appreciate the logio of facts. One apparent objection to the logio of thus taking him at bis word is that his word includes a demand that govern ment shall have no authority over him, but government need not either take away bis right of self-defence abandon its own, which latter includes the right of defence of its component parts—all law abiding oitizens. " Applying this remedy to the shooting of President MoKiuley, and wbat would be the result? Why, that every an aroliist in the country would today be subject to the vengeance of tbe mob, which would kill tbe acarrbists signt and destroy every vestige of their property. The mere suggestion of suoh a drastic scheme of repression is repug nant to tbe average American mind. ' It is apparont to all who give the sub ject careful consideration — and that the first flush of indignation over the horrid crime of tbe assassin has sub sided it is posdble to do this—that tbe greatest dangor is tbat evil may be in tertwined in tbo measures designed to secure the desired end. And tbe evil is that the innocent may be made to sutler with the guilty. One paper even went so far as to suggest the deporta tion or confinement in an asjlum for the insane of all persons "known suspected" as anarchists. Wbat a fear ful opportunity such latitude would afford vicious perrons to gratify per sonal revenge by directing baseless sus picions against those whom they dated. But tbo conclusion is inevitable, tbat lawful measures must be adopted for t the suppression of the peat of anarchism, aud among such measures deportation and refusal of admission tc this try seem the most advisable as well as tbe most effective. At any rate, the American people with the problem of dealing with mur derous anarchism,and wili have to solve ij. in tbe most satisfactory manner. / Says the Morning News, in the frenzy of its indignation: "It is clear tbat the time has arrived when anarchists, known or suspected of being such, should be driven from tbe country looked up for life as insanu persons looked up." "Known ox suspected of being such. " It might be all right, so far as tho "known" are concerned, hut how about tbe merely "suspected. " Would not danger of injustice atiaoh thereto? For instance, tbe Morqing News Addiokswasan Anarchist, Addicks might "suspect 1 ' that tbe editor of tbe Morning Nows was anarchist, with the dire result that both might be e*palliated, or locked up for life. as It of face to face ight "suspect" that J.

H as n special mat Tlie I'roplc and the President. Tho sympathy of the American people and sincere, and | with ever spontaneous it more admirably demon- ruent never strated than in the past few days, when j it was stirred to its depths by the das- dent tardly attack upon the life of President MoKinley. From every section of tho In land the voice of the people is raised already in sorrow at the grievous Buttering ira- of posed upon the President, and is also pletelj united in prayers for bis speody re covory and stern demands for the sum- not rcary punishment of his assailant. There is no sectional or partisan limit to this feeling. Those who opposed to Mr. MoKmley politically, he and who advocated tho election of his his the tbs Bal laws to bard the which opponent when tho vote for President was taken last November, are just as sorrowing nod sympathetic os those who regarded his eleotion vation of tbe country. Meu of all po litical faiths are now united in a com mon sorrow. This unanimity of feeling,thiB united voioing of a common sympathy,and the reason for it, is thus ndmirably pressed by the New York Evening Post: But people just reaching middle life have seen two Amerioau Presidents as sassinated, and now, for tbe third time in tbirty-eix yearn, nation in mortal peril. To anybody whose memory reaches tack to the ehooting of Lincoln in 1863, and recalls still more vividly tbe attack upon Gar field in 18H1, the news from Buttalo that MoKinley's name must be added to the list, came with a shock which tho young cannot within sixteen years murder there should come a second, and tbat only twenty years more have elapsed before a third i with tbe recent killing of a Kentucky governor as the result of a heated elec tion controversy in that State, fills people at first with tbe terrible feeling tbat political assassination is becoming domesticated as an institution in this country. Tbe shock of such a thought, what ever had boon the personality of the Executive thus assailed, is aggravated in this ease by the extraordinaiy per sonal popularity of WHIlum MoKinley. A genial natuie and a kindliness of manner which are parts of tbe man have brought him alone to tbe tnasnes of tbe people, and a dementia life of great beauty bas made him exception ally strong in the home so highly a.« does Kiniey the President has been earnestly and bitterly opposed for hi« policies of government, but the attractiveness of his personality made it very hard for anybody to quarrel with MoKinley the odo For is very the head of tho ting ment will of That appreciate, after the first to is to for for as the of so hut " tbe that attempted. tbat com; of have put a nation which values . Mo* dent The manner in which tbe President received the shook was worthy of a representative American. ilis first thought was of his wife, and his fitst word to bis secretary a warning to be careful about Mrs. McKinley. Tbe next was of the criminal, and of the necessity to avoid the disgrace of lyncb hurt him." Then came regret for the dis turbance to the fair. "I am norry to have been the cause of trouble to the exposition," he said to Its president, as he was being carried to the hospital. It was all wbat one would wish from tbe head of the titate in suoh a crisis. Thus it is that the true man hood of tbe American people mani fests itself. They divide upon ques tions of policy—it would bode evil to the nation if they did not—but they are loyal to their rulers, once the voice of tbe people is expressed. They criti cize the official acts of tbe President, but they respeot bis personality so long as be is a good man. And against tbe intregrity of William MoKinley ns a man ana a oitizen the voico of sus picion has never been laised. /The prayers of the American people go up for the recovery of their stricken President. Mistakes of offioial judg , if any there be, are not only tolerated, but tolerated with n cheerful equanimity borne of the assurance that our system of government affords ample opportunity to oure any political evil with tbe ballot. But when the band of assahsin strikes at tbe body of tbe Uhiet Executive, the eutire people rise moo—to protect him if possible, to avenge him if neoessary, and to ex press in every possible manner tueir appreciation of the man and their de testation of the act of the assoH-dn. Stop tho Handshaking Nuisance. A correnjiondent of tne New York World makes an excellent suggestion in the following letter: Is it not time for tbe eenee'ess cus tom of official hand shaking to be die continued by Presidents of the United States? When it was proposed to George Washington that he should shake bunds with all who ( resented themselves at hiB receptions he refused peremptorily. "I would catch the itch !"he e.\olaimod. That psrtioular peril probably dues not exist now, but, a muib graver does, and the occurrence of Friday shows tbat it cannot always be averted. At its best tbe custom is a wearisome tax on tne President. At its worst it is a serious peril. "Shaking hands with tbe President," In tbe promiscuous manner in which it has long beer. permitted in this country, is, to use a slang expression, "mere poppycock. " It only furnishes the pretext for vainglorious future boasting h> those who are permitted to participate in it. Of itself considered, the practice is devoid of any sensible feature and answers no good purpoae. It is an! im position upon tbe good nature aud tbe petsonal dignity of the President. And now tbat it has been ebown to be fraught with danger, let it be abandoned ouce and for all.

The evil is too deep-seated to be reached by partisan methods. In some quarters tbo responsibility for tbe crimu of tbe attack upon the President's lifo is laid at the dcor of tho "yellow" journals.

No conversation is held witn him, be is not informed of Iho condition of his he punishment which deprives hi opportunity of realizing the extent of his notoriety is doubtloss galling in the extreme. Should Presideut McKinley live, the extreme punishment provided by the laws of New York State for tho crime —which would be assault with intent to commit murder—ie ton years at bard labor. This fate would also be victim, and he is not allowed to the newspapers.

In tbe ves. As to reaching tbe root of the crime —tbe propagation of tbe anarchistic oreed —there question will have to be summarily dealt with. Tbe prevailing opinion is tbat ths protective measures should com; rise deportation. That anarohiBts —-thoso who (relieve in tbe destruction of law—«hould not be permitted to have an abiding piaoe in any law respecting country.

'' Whether this is the utterance of a madman or of an extraordinary de generate matters little. It-is significant by reason of the foot tbat there exists in tbe world on organization whoso oreed is assassination of rulers, and tbat maoy followers of tbe murderous sect are dow living in the United States. It is a parody upon freedom and popular government that suoh people, whose mission heretofore has been tbo assassination of kings and munarchs, should make their abiding place in a oountry where kings and mouarobs unknown, and not only here propagate their infernal doctrine cf assassination but attempt to put it into practice. Now that they bave doue tbeir das tardly work, tbe question is bound to be considered whether euch unnatural and dangerous foes of popular govern ment should be permitted longer to remain in this oountry. This is, in fact, a oountry of free speech, but the bounds of free speech far exoeed-ad when they admit of the open advocacy of the dootrine of assassination, acd that is tbe keystono of toe anarchist faith. Tbe anarchists, therefore, should not be permitted place in this country. Tbeir devilish doctrines have brought forth fearful fruit, and the tree should bo cut down, root and bracoh. longer find a resting nt Gathering Force. At a meeting of tbe Pomona G:ange of New Castle county, held at llockes ein, Thursday afternoon, and largely at tended by representative farmers, a committee was appointed to co-operate with the oitizens committee to he ap pointed in Wilmingtou, in furthering the movement for reform m tho county government. The committee is posed of KLhard Buckingham, O. W. East burn, Dr. A. T. Nenlo, Arnold Naudaia, Jr., and llervuy Walker. One of the most healthful signs of the reform movement is V.ie interest tauen by tbe farmeis. With few ex ceptions, tbo fanners of the county have no opportunity to derive any sub stantial result from tbeir taxes save in tbe matter of good government. They are not interested, as a class, in con tracts for public work or supplies. They aro tillers of the soil, and their products aro not needed in the business of county government. But they bnve a deep interest in good roads and bridges, and in a business administra tion of public affairs. And they taxpayers to a very material extent. It is only appxopnate, therefore, tbat they should take a deep interest in the reform movement, aud their hearty co operation with tbe city committee will be productive of gnod results. The reform movement was n'so en dorsed along other line*, last evening, by a meeting of Eleventh ward oitizens held at the rooms o! the Eleventh Ward Democratic League. Probably a parti* co or will attach to tbe action of this meeting by reason of its onviron ments, but this fact will not detract from the fores of its utteranoes. It is hard to get suitable places for public meetings without going to expense, and there is nothing in the way of meeting rooms of both Republican aud Demo cratic organizations being proffered for the purpose. The main thing is to secure united action through public gatherings, and the concentration of all the reform agencies. This may be done by publia meetings in various soutions of the county, no matter what may be the character of the meeting places.

Even the deaths of Lincoln and Garfield did not affeot this feeling of security. They weie regarded as unfortuoato calamities that might never find repetition. But tho deadly blew at President MoKinley opens a new danger to tbe nation—tbe danger that its public men may be assassinated at any time—and such a danger is fraught with the direst consequences, lt.will occasion national fear and unrest; it will atteot the very Dervo centre of tbe government. be of Vlcf-l'rrililcnt KoodctcH.

It is rumored that the sheriff will resist the transfer, and tbe arrival of tbe supply of Btone looks like fur nishing the prisoners with mote work at tbe jail. If these surmises turn out to be true, then the purchase of stone will be an indication of the connivance of tbe Levy Court, through whioh body the stone was ordered, with tbe sheriff to delay the inauguration of the work house.

The States wherein there were no the . of the right iynobings during this period were: Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hamp shire, Rhode Island, Utah and Vermont. Tbe remarkable feature of thie show ing is the number of Iynobings in the States of tbe North, West and North west, which sections be almost entirely free of this kind of lawlessness. Kansas, the Dakotas and supposed to Ohio were serious offenders, and even New England did not escape. Tbe reason for tbe excess of lynch - togs in the Routh is well known, and, this fact being taken into consideration, tbat seotion of the try is little, if any, more guilty with respeot to lynoh ings than any other seotion. The figures not only furnish food for reflection, but for interesting comment (n tbe latter line it is particularly gratifying to note tbe good record of Deaware, whioh has not had a lynch ing for nearly half a oentury. Although clothed with full power by the officiary of the Amalgamated Asso ciation, President Shaffer makes no move to settle the unfortunate strike of the steel workers, which is tained only by violent measures to restrain from doing so. Nothing could more completely demonstrate tbe unfitness of Shaffer for bis position. Tbe man does not know tbat be is beaten, and will hold out for absolute humiliation, in whioh, unfortunately, he will involve all the misguided workmen who give allegiance to him. who want to return to work QUESTION OF A WHARF.
