Sub scriptions should be sent to the publica tion office by mail or telephone. Friday, December 23, 1898. Good morning! Do you buy in Wil mington? Richard R. Kenney, United States Senator from Delaware, should resign. He has twice failed to secure an acquit tal of the serious charges made against him, and it does not look as if he would ever be able to secure such a verdict. j Thus lie is forced to stand before the j I country in a position that lessens his \ ! usefulness as a United States Senator.— The Morning Xeux Banking in Delaware needs investiga ji on ° The national scandal growing out of the looting of the First National Bank of Dover stinks to Heaven. Here is wliat Jerome B. Bell has to sav concerning the Farmers'Bank at George t 0 W n "The Farmers' Bank at Georgetown * "D 011 which money was raised to buy Demo cratic votes for the last ten years." The Sussex National Bank at Seaford was robbed of $25,000 by one N. Hiram Brown who brazenly says "Wliat art you going to do about it,'' and the Gov-! eminent is, as it lias been, silent. Froin Smyrna comes the news that tiie Fruit Growers' National Bank of that place has for years past carried $30,900 worth of valueless paper ns "surplus." The grave charge against the Farmers'I Bank of Georgetown, comes from a man I who is a public character. Jerome B. ! Bell is financially responsible. His san-! ity has not yet been inquired into by a , lunacy commission. The Farmers'Bank j at Georgetown treats his charge with i silent contempt. This wont do. If the | Banka of Delaware, anv one or all of them are rotten, it is time that their act status was known to tiie public. Surely there ought to be some way of reaching the man or men who plun dered the Sussex National Bank ami it would be a crime against God and : ..... to allow any one concerned in the loot ing of the First National flank of Dover to escape. A I'ome. I'd like to be a Senator, And in tlie Senate slano; With Levi for my Buffer, I'd trv to rule the land. —Willie. is holding worthless paper, ex man The Banks in Delaware have had alto gether too intimate relations with poli tics and politicians. Several banks are known to be political institutions and men who have no "Pull" can expect nothing from them. Suclt a bank can . . not be safe. A political bank is a rotten tank. The officials of the various banks in the State owe it lo themselves to take the public into their confidence, at least so far as may be necessary to meet specific charges made against them. The State of Delaware has representa tion in the Directory of the F'armers' Bank. Tlie man is a Democrat, inter ested in State and City contracts. He is not qualified either by education or ex perience to inquire into or learn the exact status of any bank. The responsi bility rests with Governor Tunnell. In plain English, Jerome B. Bell asserts that some of tlie assets of the Farmers' Bank are no good; that this worthless paper has been carried as an asset for ten years past, and that tlie plunder stolen from the bank by means of this worth less paper was used to buy Democratic votes. Tlie silence of the Bank and the Governor gives assent to this proposition, It is not likely that Jerome B. Bell was either drunk or crazy when lie printed thesc charges affecting the integrity of this bank. ' In view of these facts; tlie notorious scandal surrounding the First National Bank at Dover; the admitted crime in volvmg the Sussex National Bank, the Farmers'Bank at Georgetown must come to the front and prove Bell a criminal liar. Silence is no defense. Tlie integ rity of every Bank in Delaware is at stake. No careful man will permit a penny of his savings to rest a moment in a bank that is under suspicion. The fact that the First National Bank of Dover was robbed to the tune of $107, 000 is admitted. The fact that the Sussex National Bank of Seaford was robbed of $25,000 is admitted. The fact that the F'ruit Growers' Na tional Bank of Smyrna lias for years car ried a $30,900 "surplus" in worthless paper is admitted. The Farmers' Bank at Georgetown practically admits that the following grave charges preferred by Jerome B. Bell are true:— "The Farmers' Bank at Georgetown is holding worthless paper, upon which money was raised to buy Democratic votes for the last ten years." Them is a new song going the rounds o! the press and it rune as follows: We tart wank to bay at ytmt plats, wc don't want to trade there any mom; you'll he aorry when yon tee na going other etore. You can't (Ml oa any goods, we bave opened wide our eyea; don't want to trade at vour store, be cause you do not advertise. —WY* Pimm (ifo.) Journal. we If Richard Rollins Kenney has any regard for the decency of Delaware he will resign his seat in the Senate of tbe United States. Conviction Out of the Question? "If the Department of Justice wants to send more good money after bad it will instruct United States District At torney Vandegrift to make a third at tempt to secure the conviction of Senator Kenney on the testimony of William N. Boggs. Conviction is out of the ques tion, and but for the partisan feeling aroused the Senator would, ere this, have been acquitted. If he is tried again it will be here in his own State, where both he and his accuser are known, and where tha Senator has a right to have his case heard."— Evening Journal. Does this mean that every jury can be "fixed?" Willie's boom has the pip. The Worm Turns Again. As the new year approaches numerous new resolves will be made only in a short time to be broken again. We think this is the proper time for the owners of Printer's Ink, published by the Prince of blackmailers on the newspaper publish ers throughout the country to try and treat legitimate newspapers with the proper consideration that is due them and not lie wilfully about their business.

It was for several years tlie ; medium through which the county con stables were paid after being appointed by the Governor.

The former Re voider of Deeds and a few favorite law }ers have been enabled to receive sums of money for work that properly be longed to that official.

F'tole From James Harkins. Other Cases He irtl. In the Municipal Court vesterday morning, Mary Jones, colored, was ar-} raigned on the charge of stealing $5, the property of James Harkins, on Tuesday 1 night, at a bouse on Grange street near Third. Chief of Police Dolan was about to i testify to the effect that the woman had made a confession to him after site was i arreBted, but Walter H. Hayes, counsel for the accused, objected, holding that any statement made by an accused per son to an officer, such as a chief of pouce, was not voluntary and therefore not ad missible. He cited a Massachusetts case, blit not having the book stated that he would submit the book to tbe judge later. The point was not insisted upon, however and tiie chief repeated the confession' the woman having told him that she had stolen $3, instead of $5, from Harkins while lie was in the house where she was staying. She took the stand in her own behalf and made a similar statement, where upon tlie judge held her in $200 bail to answer the charge at the Court of Gen cral Sessions. Attorney Haves remarked after court that the admissibility of con fessions to officers will not be tested in the case against the woman, . Officer Lyons, accused JoEephineGood big, colored, of acting disorderly in the vicinity of Market street bridge over the Christiana river, about 3 o'clock this morning. She was fined $5. William B. Dixon was lined $5 for dis orderly conduct, and William McLaugh lin, charged with drunkenness fined $1. The residents of Delmar had a mad dog Bcare on Tuesday. The rabid animal ran through the town and the people were warned by a man on horseback who followed in the wake of tlie dog. One man, Robert Brown, celdred, was bitten by the canine and it is feared that a number of dogs and pigs have been bitten. The mad dog also tore a portion of the dress of Mrs. Willis.

Chicago, Dec. 22.—In tlie midst of crowds of pedestrians on Kinsie street, close to the passenger dopot of the Northwestern Railroad last night two men engaged in a desperate encounter with revolvers. One of them was killed and the other probably owes liis life to the fact that tils antagonist's weapon contained an empty cartridge. Dennis E. Riley, a detective employed by the Chicago & Northwestern Rai way, is the victim of the encounter, and his slayer is James A. Maver, a milk dealer at Tleasant Plain, Wig.' The men had at one time been friends, but lately.hsd become estranged because of a business deal. The old quarrel was renewed when they met on the street last night and finally itnev drew a re volver. Mayer then drew his weapon and the two men stood facing one another with levelled revolvers. Crowds of peo S le scattered in alarm as thev saw the ash of the weapons, and May Riley had full possession of tb walk. Almost simultaneously they bo gan working their revolvers. Riley's weapon failed to act, but Mayers' was discharged, and the bullet struck his ad versary above the heart. I er and te side A GREAT CONVENIENCE.
