SATURDAY. MARCH 2. 1889.
Our Obeisance.
Common as is the event of the birth
of a new public journal, custom requires
that to propitiate popular favor, and
to apologize for presuming to be, each
must make its little bow, to its constitu
ents and contemporaries. The one
line declaration of principles is thrown to
the breeze on our banner, as an express
ion of our own convictions, and in honor
of our village, state and nation, believ
ing, the while, that Republicanism is
higher than partisan spirit, Christi inity
higher than sectarianism, and progress a
divine law !
In adopting Industry, Commerce and
Education, as the specific objects to
which the "Enterprise" is to be devoted,
we recognize the power, lever and ful
crum by which society is to be elevated,
civilization improved, and human wel
fare promoted.
Industry multiplies the means of en
joyment, Commerce distributes them,
Education conserves, economizes and
utilizes them. By Industry we mean
that which comprises the four "Mis;'
Mental, Moral, Muscular and Mechani
cal. Commerce includes traffic, travel
and the interchange of truths. Educa
tion is the development and discipline
of our whole nature, all through life.
Death is next in order, when a town,
a man or an institution is finished.
Our respect is due, first to principles,
second to measures, third to the em
bodiment of these in men.
"Why are we Republican ?" Because
we recognize in that party, at present,
the best embodiment of right principles
and wise measures. Society must some
day outgrow parties. Then the science
of political economy will have superseded
politics , patriotism alone will excuse
office-seeking, and robbers will have
ceased to say: "To the victors belong the
spoils." Then opinions will cease to be
borrowed or biased, and franchises will
be no longer bought. We date these
blessings at about A. D. 2000.
With respect to the unification of the
Delvirmar Peninsula, a cause which we
have been tempted to espouse, it need
only be said at present, that when the
people are wise enough to acknowledge
their unity of interests, its statutory con
solidation will soon follow as a matter of
course. When the incoming adminis
tration insists on our opinion as to wheth
er this should be before or after the an
nexation of Canada, we shall no longer
decline. In the meantime, we shall de
vote our best services to promoting the
industries, commerce and education of
every portion of Delvirmar. And yet, we
beg to assure all our friends beyond
the bays that we are not losing sight of
any of their interests. Our subscription
list and our advertising columns are
just as cordially open to them as to
their more fortunate cis-aqueous cousins.
We ought to add that the particular por
tion of the American people whose dis
advantages we most sincerely commis
serate, is that whom circmstances com
pel to reside outside the limits of Wil
mington's suburbs But now, with this
informal greeting, that the general wel
fare may not become too impatient, we
turn to our more agreeable duties.
A Fundamental Democratic Principle
In an article published by the Lancas
ter Intelligencer, and quoted with silent
approval by the Philadelphia Record, we
find this declaration : "The Democratic
party ha a never failed to deny the right
of the lawmaker to prohibit entirely the
use of alcohjolic, or any other sort of
liquor ; and itiis safe to say that it never
will. 'Any- Uypnocrat voting for Prohibi
tion, votes aga-nst Democratic doctrine,
and against the fundamental principles
of his party 1"
We admire a bold declaration of prin
ciples, whatever they are; and there is
no mistaking now the above fundamental
Democratic principle.
In the word "use" there seems to be a
little carelessness, or a little dodging:
since there has never been any proposi
tion to "prohibit" anything but making,
selling, and transporting for sale, intoxi
cating drinks. The following sentence,
therefore, is a valorous blow at a straw
man: "He may get drunk, if he is a
fool, and the law cannot call him to ac
count, etc." Prohibition recognizes the
foolish weakness of the tippler, and seeks
to protect him, his family, and
society, against the maker, and vender,
who would speculate upon his weakness.
Prohibition asks for no law against the
victim.
Protection for all rights, and Prohibi
tion of all wrongs, are two of the funda
mental principles of Republicanism.
The special Prohibitionist may now
see how little he can expect from the
Democratic party ; and how naturally he
and his friends should be found in the
Republican ranks. They must come to
derstand that Republicans do not love
' liquor prohibition less, but only prohibi
tion of all evil more.
And now to show how shrewdly the
Democratic party discriminates between
un
liquor and liquor dealers, we quote two
more sentences from the same article.
"There are doubtless many Democrats
justly provoked at the miserable selfish
ness, and political treachery of the liquor
interest. No doubt a great majority of
Democrats would cheerfully kick the
average liquor dealer into a sorer state
than that of Lazarus.''
American War Policy.
A Baltimore Sun special from Wash
ington, with other good things, says :
"It has been frequently asserted that Mr.
Bayard has had no policy ; whereas he
has all along had a very definite and a
peculiarly American policy. He believes
that the American people have a higher
and a nobler destiny than that of swag
gering about among the nations of the
earth, "daring" somebody to "knock a
chip off their shoulder." His idea is that
the Military spirit is to be discouraged in
a republic, except in so far as it is neces
sary for purposes of defence."
This is a pleasant piece of information
which Mr. Bayard might profitably have
given to the public, in some more direct
way than in private conversations. The
swaggering, "chip-bearing" people who
were certain that Uncle Sam and
Germany were going to war over the
Samoan riots, would find it difficult to
understand any true national policy. To
them a few hundred thousand lives,
widows and orphans, and a few billions
of war debt, are matters of small moment,
in the balance against the bully's chip of
honor. It would be well to consider that
the dinamite fiend all over this country
is an importation from the warlike autoc
racies of the old world.
It is well that this country has no
"War Policy," because our policy is
peace, and war is only a remote possi
bility whose policy will always depend on
circumstances. Americans, perhaps more
than any other people on the globe,
realize that war is a relic of barbarism.
But until other nations are civilized
above it, it is a weapon which even civili
zation must use when attacked by bar
barism. This renders it necessary to
look about and estimate our means of
defense in emergencies. In reviewing
these, we are greatly aided by a glance
at our own history. In the war of the
Revolution our best element of defense
was, what our chief means of security
have been ever since, the width of the
ocean and of the country.
Next to these are our unequalled facili
ties for manufacturing all warlike imple
ments. And our great rebellion disclosed
the best, in the prompt adaptability of all
classes of citizens, to the most dangerous
emergencies of war. These fortunate
circumstances render a large standing
army, and any settled War Policy, quite
unnecessary.
The Suburbs.
As the sun would be shorn of its glory,
if its photosphere should be destroyed,
so Wilmington could not afford to dis
pense with its suburbs. A city without
any would be poor indeed. Like the
moon whose atmosphere is congealed
within it, it would shine only by borrowed
light. Per contra, a city with an abun
dance of suburban, photospheric glory,
is more than ordinarily luminous.
This is a sufficient preparation for
pointing out the causes of Wilminton's
remarkable brilliancy, viz: East Lake
Park, Creston, Holly Oak and North
Holly Oak, on the north ; Rising Sun,
and Silverbrook, on the west; and New
port on the southwest. Of course it does
not become us to make any such
invidious distinction as to say which of
these constitute the incandescent photo
sphere which sheds the light and which
the transparent gaseous chromosphere.
We will kindly suggest to our esteemed
contemporary out toward Philadelphia,
that etherial as is the most distant of these
without it sunlight would lack most
of its life-giving properties; and our
handsome transurban neighbor may add
to that comforting crumb the reflection
that he is not alone in his misery.
It is true, the city journals,' which may
be regarded as a sort of gaseous sediment
from the upper spheres, may remind us
that the nucleus is the "solid" part of
the sun ; and that a set ol suburbs with
out any city would be an awfuily hollow
sphere. (We knew if we didn't say this
"Mac" would, and if he once got started
he would be sure to lug in something
about that infinit«, ethereal sphere
beyond all the suburbs. )
As to the industrial village suburb,
Newport, we hardly need say that its
orient "East Newport" is merely its
first thorough revival of progressive life,
its actual rising sun. Hence under the
inspiration of the morning beams, New
port Enterprise is one of the natural
first fruits. And we are glad to find that
its people cordially welcome us as such.
They understand that this distinctive
prefix East, has only a sort of ward
significance that is purely incidental.
All the varied interests of Newport,
from the enterprising newsboys, through
the business directory found in our
columns, to the 800 lots upon which
East Newport is planting the increase
of population, and the surrounding
fertile farms for whose superior products
we are making a market which will soon
tax all their energies, all these interests
are one. All one, let no one forget it I
And if any hard sleeper, rubbing his
eyes, feels inclined to doubt it let some
body show him the way to the N. E. cor
ner of James and Market Sts.,and we will
cheerfully show him the "papers for it."

and works all day.
the rest of the town is tired and retired,
the electric light of our sanctum glows

the tinkle of the telephone, comes the

after that ; down goes the stylograph, off

And after
PROHIBITION IN IOWA
Senator Wilson's Speech Before the
Upper House of Congress.
Mr. Wilson o( Iona addressed the
Senate in support of the bill relating to
imported liquors introduced by Mr. Frye,
Dec. 21, 1887, reported back adversely
from the Judiciary Committee March 19,
1888, and then placed on the calendar.
The bill reads :
The consent of Congress is hereby
given that the laws of the several States
relating to the sale of distilled and fer
mented liquors within the limits of each
State may apply to such liquors when
they have been imported in the same
manner, as when they have been manu
factured in the United States.
Mr. Wilson dwelt at considerable
length on the beneficent effects of the
anti-saloon law in Iowa, quoting the
opinions of judges as to the remarkable
reduction of crime since the law had
gone into operation. He quoted one of
the judges as saying in regard to his
judicial district: "In many of the counties
the jail is almost an unnecessary
building. In the last three counties
visited there was not an occupant of the
jail. He spoke of the illiteracy of Iowa
having been brought down to I 2-10 per
cent ; Iowa being thus placed, he said,
"at the head of the educational column
not only of this country, but of the
world." Such a state might hopefully
?sk Congress to remove the judicial con
struction which alone stood as an obstruc
tion in the way of the rightful exercise of
her political powers ; by which removals
she could successfully suppress crime
within her borders.
!
Wilmington Schools
(Year ending June 30th, '88,)
The number of schools in Wilming
ton is 28 ; and the number of teachers,
160. 5960 pupils have passed from
all the primary schools to higher grades,
since Jan. ist, 1875. 247 have grad
uated from the High School since
September 1875. This is an average
of 17 High School graduates per an
num for the 14 years.
From 1875 to 1881 inclusive, the pu
pils graduated in September. Since
the latter year the graduations have been
in February and September of each
year.
From September, 1885, to February,
1888, inclusive, no graduates from the
High School are reported.
The average age of Wilmington High
School graduates in 1877 was 17 yrs.,
7 mos. for boys, and 18 yrs., 3 months for
girls; in 1888, it was 17 yrs. 2 months
for boys, and 18 yrs 4 months, for girls.
The youngest average for boys, was in
1880, and for girls in 1879. Will some
one tell us why the girls should graduate
a year later than their brothers? Per
haps the busier habits of the boys have
something to do with it. The Principal
of the High School is the only male
teacher in Wilmington This and the
fact that the pupils of the Wilmington
Girls' High School have, for fourteen
years past, graduated at the age of 18,
and those of the Boys' High School at
the age of 17, is an argument in favor of
the coeducation of the sexes. They need
the influence of each other, both in the
study-room and the recitation-room.
Both will derive therefrom an ambi
tion more vigorous and of a higher type.
Fencing up the sexes, as though each
was something pernicious to the other, is
always suicidal to manly and womanly
virtue.
Their familiar co-education takes a
valuable hint from the universal effects
of the blessing of brothers and sisters in
the same family. The mixed school is
the natural and easy transition from the
family to virtuous society.
The legitimate fruits of separate
sociation, are the street corner and club
house gang, talking profanity and slang,
and bevys of bold girls talking worse.
A competent male principal at the
head of every school in the city, above
the primary grade, would carry a larger
percentage of those 5960 into the High
School, and help to even up the gradu
ating ages of the boys and girls. We
are not asserting that graduation per
centages are any certain index to real
mental culture ; but such as it is, the
means suggested would improve it.
u
A Timely Suggestion.
The following facts, so pertinent in the
great Temperance issues which will not
down at any one's bidding, ought to be
printed in large type, framed and sus
pended on the walls of every Delaware
home.
1. "Eighty per cent, of all the crime
committed in the State of Delaware, her
criminal expenses and high taxes, are in
curred in consequence of the work that
her saloons are continually doing.
2. A large percent, of the money spent
in the saloons is due the butcher, the
tailor, the shoe maker, and other trades
people; and, therefore, the saloons are a
direct tax upon the people.
3. Seven-eighths of our idiots and
insane in the Diamond State, are attrib
utable to rum.
4. As a State we spend annually
nearly two and one half times as much
for beer as for education.

"Better than presence of mind in a
railway accident is absence of body,"
says an ancient jest; but in a case of
compensation after the accident is over,
and you are doing your best to get the
most you can out of the company, pres
ence of mind is alt-important.
A curious case of the want of it, lately
occurred—I am informed—in a certain
law court. If it is known to any of my
readers I will never believe my informant
again, who assures me it has never been
in print. The injured party, with his
arm in a sling, was under cross-examina
tion.
"You tell me you cannot lift
arm ?"
your
"Well, perhaps half an inch—like
this ; but it gives me horrible torture ; it
pains me even to touch it."
"Poor fellow 1 Just show us how high
you find it possible to lift it."
With many sighs and groans he lifted
it three-quarters of an inch.
"And before the accident there
nothing the matter with it ? "
"Nothing whatever."
"How high could you lift it then ?"
"Oh, as high as you please—like this,"
and he raised his arm over his head.
This pleased the counsel very much,
for it extinguished the plaintiff's claim at
once. For the moment, the poor fellow
had lost his presence of mind.

PROTECTION.
Its Ten Commandments.—No- I
Be Prudent.
P.
The Republican watchword, "Pro
tection," contains the initials of the po
litical ten commandments, of which
"Be Prudent," may be regarded as first
and fundamental. The whole idea of
protection is based upon the idea of pru
dence. It includes self defense, "the
first law of nature." It supposes an un
derstanding of our condition and privi
leges, and a wise forecast to provide for
safety, welfare and every form of im
provement. It is only by prudence that
a Republican form of Government can
be established, preserved and perfected.
The people should remember this. The
various institutions which characterise it
will not preserve themselves. The work
of prudence is not completed in their
mere initiation. They require fostering
care, vigilant protection, and to be con
formed to the divine law of progress.
The various forms of productive industry,
legitimate commerce, and wise educa
cation, comprise most of our beneficent
institutions. In and through them hu
man welfare is being promoted and hu
manity iiself lifted up to a higher plane.
The industry, commerce and education
of a Christian Republic, need constant
protection from the baleful influences of
lower forms of Government.
Prudence is not selfishness It com
bines discretion and understanding. It
was well said by the wise man: "Dis
cretion shall preserve thee; Understand
ing shall keep thee 1"
