Ambassador Bayard has courteously ottered tile Oliver service Committee the use of his carriage for the presentation ceremonies and has smrpested that others who have carriages do the same. anu a« suggraitu mat , tt . .1 , The eminent diplomat is getting in his fine work. He knows that there is nothimr to eciltal his "trap" on this side of the water, and uko. mniiiug iu * ... , . presutnably feels confident that the silver service, the gunboat itself and the whole works in general, will pale into insignificance when the aforesaid trap is presented to view. The acumen of the late Ambassador to the Court of St. James's is very noticeable, and, inasmuch as there is not time between now and November 23 to import any more British carriages, it may be well to let Mr. Bay ard's be put 011 exhibition as the second great feature of the show, the first being, of course, the great speechmaker himself. Good morning! The public will naturally feel astonishment at learning that sev eral Wilmington lawyers have been indicted for failure to pay the license required by law. Not because the lawyers have not been sufficiently aware of the probability of their indictment, but be cause a few out of the whole number should omit to pay that which the great number does not hesitate to pay. Lawyers are in genera! rather favored in mattersoflicen.se and similar requirements, and the contention of those who have been indicted that they are of fleers of the courts, and therefore exempt from license, will not strike many persons as particularly conclusive. Lawyers are tech- 1 nically officers of the courts, but they carry on a business directly : with the community, exactly as do physicians, engineers and Others, who now probablv pay license fees without murmuring, ' i The who'e affair has a petty flavor, which, no matter whether the objecting lawyers are right or wrong in their legal contention, will not help them in the public esteem. . , , It would be the height of presumption for any ordinary mortal to offer advice or make a suggestion to that grand and glorious " - establishment of great men known as the Water Commission, has been tried in times past, by persons of little experience, or by those who do not realize that the Water Department is superior to earthly wisdom, having acquired, by purchase or otherwise, a small portion of that omniscience which frail minds have hereto It has been hinted that fore attributed exclusively to Providence, the Department might find it a good move to place a rail alongside the race, in order that persons not absolutely bound to drown them selves, or tliote who, either through misadventure or otherwise, might be walking on the path by the race, might have some chance of continuing their earthly pursuits The wisdom and mag nificence of intellect which graces the Water Department has been entirely equal to the occasion and soon a'ter it had become appar ent that persons do fall into water and drown, the Department erected a sign near the entrance to South Brandywine Park inform ingmankind that the walk there was not a public thoroughfare and that persons who walked along it did so at their own risk. Department felt confident that this sign would put an end to all ap prehension mi the score mentioned. Unfortunately there are mis guided persons who do not believe in signs, and who persist in walking on forbidden paths in spite of signs. Several of these persons have fallen into the race—unlawfully of course- and having fallen into the race were drowned, likewise unlawfully oi course. But any person who is drowned unlawfully has no right to expect consideration at the hands of the Water Department, The latest addition to the list of persons who would persist in walk ing alongside the race and being drowned, was found afloat yester day. Whether the Department intends to prosecute his remains for falling into the Wilmington drinki ig water supply having first secured permission, remains to be seen. The witilOllt Perhaps in the long history of judicial crimes chargeable to cir cumstantial evidence and to the gross savagery of militarism the case of Alfred Dreyfus, formerly a captain in the French army, mav yet stand first for pathos and for horror. Charged in 1895 with having sold to the German Government plans of French fortresses and schemes for the mobilization of troops, Dreyfus was convicted by court-martial. In the presence of 5000 troops his regalia of office were stripped from him, his sword was broken, and he was displayed in ignominy to the populace, which stoned him. Then he was taken to serve a life sentence on the Isle du Diablo, a deso late spot on the coast of French Guiana, which, in character, does not belie its name. There, in a murderous climate, malarial, torrid, poisonous,where the basest animals alone can survive, the prisoner who is yet young, is kept in a great steel cage, like a beast of pres'. At home his name is cursed as perhaps that of Benedict Arnold was in the dark days of our struggle for national existence, nearly every side he is held in detestation as a traitor. A cousin stung by the constant references to his relationship to the exile killed himself and his family of four to escape the cruel obloquy. Throughout his trial the accused man maintained his protestations of innocence. "In three years the truth will be known, and then the Minister himself will take my part," he said on hearing his sentence. And while he has been suffering, his faithful wife has been toiling to prove his innocence, in the Vatican and at every Court in Europe, convinced of the justice of her cause, and only within a few day she lias biought charges of such grave importance against "a rich and titled officer," supposed to be tile Comte ■ Esterhazy, that the War Department has been forced to reopen the case. Suppose Dreyfus be shown to have been the scapegoat for another's sins, what punishment is adequate to the crime of the man for whom lie has suffered, what repentance equal to the offence against justice which the members of the court-martial perpetrated? ^ On Her appeals have been heard Many have been 'S CRACKED SAFE, ESCAPED.

The robbers broke into Smith's hard- 1 ware store and blew open the safe with' dynamite.
