The east-side streets are in a littered condition and need a good,

Six men are candidates for the mayoralty of greater New York.
After the election five of them will be anxious to explain the horri

The Christian Endeavor Convention, in Baltimore, has attracted

The government contractors having charge of the dredging of
the Delaware seem to have discovered the secret of perpetual mo
tion. They dig the mud from one place and dump it in another.
When their present contract expires, they will be looking for a job
to haul the mud back from the place where they are now dumping
it, to the place where they first got it.
The sad death of young .Brear, the unfortunate cyclist whose

and a reminder to wheelmen in general that in the streets of a
city, riders cannot exercise too much care. A rapidly moving
bicycle cannot be readily or quickly stopped. The dangers of fast
riding are therefore quite apparent. The young man who lost his
life was perhaps quite as careful as hundreds of other riders about
Wilmington. ^
When the report reached Madrid that General Weyler's admir
ers in Havana were desirous to f tendering him a farewell ban
generally believed that the Madrid government misunderstood the
matter and supposed the Havana contingent had offered General
Weyler a bank. As the Spanish government requires all stray
banks for its own financial necessities, the reason for the order is

terest on $17, when he borrowed $17, the transaction seems to have
been a mere bit of financiering. We respectfully call the attention of
Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan and the other members of the Union Paci

they could use in their business.
The awkward whispers that Colonel Ezekiel T. Cooper, formerly
of Dover, has gone to Honolulu to capture Mr; Boggs, formerly of
the First National Bank, Dover should be silenced at once. Colo
nel Cooper has merely gone to Hawaii to inspect the country at
the request of the Hawaiian government. Everything was gotten
in readiness for his visit, presumably, and even an old volcano,
which hadn't turned a wheel in years, began to "erupt" when it
heard he was coming. Colonel Cooper's return to the land of the
free and the home of the brave is awaited with much anxiety by
official circles at Washington as the latter will be governed
altogether by his report in deciding whether the Hawaiian Islands
shall or shall not be annexed to Kent County.

"One reason why we advise specific advertising as better than

you get all the general benefit you could possibly derive from gen

Hon. Thomas F. Bayard'is now reported on his way from Europe
to represent a British syndicate in New York, and it is added, his
salary will be "at least equal to that of the President of the United

Local merchants would do well to make a special window display |

The Street and Sewer Department has expended quite a sum of

Mr. Washington Hastings objects to the adoption of the proposed

have already declared bicycle taxes to be unconstitutional.
Every grade crossing in the city limits should be abolished
forthwith. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company has no more
right to maintain a nuisance than anybody else and certainly no
individual could hope to establish and maintain ten or a dozen
death-traps in any part of Wilmington.
Now the silver service for the Gunboat Wilmington is an as

with appropriate ceremonies. The day when the service is delivered
the commander of the vessel should be a local holiday and Wil

thousands will visit the city to witness the ceremonies.
The bicycle is soon to have a competitor and a good one.
Road-skates capable of making fifteen miles an hour on a fair
road have been put on the market and the demand indicates that
road skating has come to stay. One concern in London sold five

erected throughout the Kingdom for the promotion of the sport.
Each skate is equipped with a leg guard reaching to the knee.

The dangers of annexation, concerning which the papers
of this country have been making so much ado of late, are vividly
illustrated in the case of Greater Newark. That youthful and
inexperienced suburb has recently incorpoirted into its limits
everything in sight. Brooklyn has been taken in, churches and
all; Long Island City, including Mr. P. Jerome Gleason, has been
added to the funded debt; the Bronx, has been pocketed, with its
bronchitis. But these acquisitions are giving it no trouble. It

bruisers, who, with two lads, were assisting in a prize-fight in a
stable in Filbert street, presents the prize-ring question in a new
and dangerous light. When Corbett and Fitzsimmons fought in
Carson City, the result there was that the youthful population of
that decaying town started forth to win similar distinction in the
in earnest—which is more than can be
That they were
said of the adult gladiators in all cases—is shown by the fact that
in a school room where fifty-three male scholars were assembled
there was counted on one day seventy-six black eyes, while other
contusions on view were as numerous. The young rascals emulat
ing the prowess of the champions and copying the example of the
victor, had thumped each other in the region |of the heart with
such violence that it is also related there was no breast that did
not bear the colors of war. The battles were waged with sucli
ferocity and pluck that the gambling fraternity of Carson took
interest in the flower of these youth and made matches,
which were fought to a finish and excelled in dash and
spirit the greater contest of the professional business.
Finally the authorities interfered and locked up a lot of the young
rascals, breaking up the evil practice by such discipline, reinforced
by more-effective penalties applied at home. Nevada has herself
to blame She invited the prize fighters into her borders, having
repealed the laws that interfered with the practice of their profess
ion there, and it is but natural that she should thus have imbued
her youth with the spirit of the arena. But what has Philadelphia
done ' Surely there are no prize fights under the guise of contests
of manly skill being held in this city ? If there be such, then it is
not strange that Percy Pagan, aged 14, and Dan Rodden, aged 15,
should wish to settle the important question of which is the better
man by trial. It is an encouraging sign that they were not per
mitted to reach a decision, and their arrest was quite proper—if
they were fighting. The police obviously thought they were, and
they locked them up. Now Magistrate South has dismissed the
case 011 the ground that there was no evidence of a prize and he
would not therefore enter into the question of the fight. The
natural conclusion is that on this decision, so long as the stakes are
not apparent, fighting is no breach of the law and victory may sit
the brows of those that claim her.— The Philadelphia Times.
If they want to fight whose business i s it anyhow ?
