Tha "Ivory" is a favorite shaving' soap because it makes a profuse, rich lather, which softens the beard that is to be removed and leaves the skin unharmed. It costs about one' fifth as much as the so-called shaving soaps, and many who have used it for this purpose for years will not have any other.

The election for Member Dei^r^Ei^tion of Assembly in the ninth

representative district of Kent County, Delaware, which was held at Harrington and Farmington on Tuesday of last week, gave J. Edward Addicks another vote in the contest that he is making for the United States Senatorship, and furnished another proof of the gradual disintegration of the Democratic party in southern Delaware under the influence of Mr. Addicks's money. The ninth district of Kent County is normally Democratic, and in 1900 it gave a Democratic plurality of 119 on a total vote of about 800. In the general election two months ago this plurality was wiped out; and as the Addicks candidate and the Democratic candidate were tied—each receiving 424 votes—another election was ordered. This election was held on Tuesday last, and resulted in a plurality of 192 for the Addicks candidate, Mr. Powell. Inasmuch as the candidates presented and the questions involved in Tuesday's election were exactly the same as in the election of November 4, the extraordinary and unprecedented change from a tied vote to an Addicks plurality of 192. in less than eight weeks, raises, naturally, a presumption of fraud. An analysis of the vote shows that the gain of the Addicks candidate was made chiefly at the expense of the Democrats, who, to the number of 120, absented themselves from the polls. A staff correspondent of The Outlook who has been studying the Delaware situation on the ground writes that it is charged by the Regular Republicans and the Democrats that, after the November election, Addicks "workers" drove about the district for weeks bribing purchasable Democrats not to vote; that by a lavish use of money they induced forty men in the northern part of the district and sixty or eighty in the southern part to stay away from the

polls, and that then they bought enough "floaters "—chiefly negroes—on election day to make up their plurality of 192— paying for them at the rate of from $5 to §20 per vote. If Mr. Addicks's money holds out, and if he be not deterred by criminal prosecution from further buying of votes, there is little doubt that two years hence he will carry every election district in the counties of Kent and Sussex, get absolute control of the Legislature, and go, with another Union Republican of his own choice, to the Senate of the United States. His managers openly boast that if they do not elect Mr. Addicks to the Senate this winter they will "wipe up the earth "with the opposition in 1904.

Under the new State The situation in the Constitution the Gen

Delaware Legislature

eral Assembly of Delaware consists of seventeen Senators and thirty-five Representatives, and when the two houses meet in joint session on the 20th of January, to ballot for United States Senator, twenty-seven votes will be needed to elect. The numerical strength of the respective parties in the present Legislature is believed to be as follows: Union (Addicks) Republicans, 23; Democrats, 21; Regular (anti-Addicks) Republicans, 8. Mr. Addicks, therefore, lacks four of a majority, and cannot be elected without the aid of four men from the ranks of the opposition. That he will secure such aid seems at present to be in the highest degree improbable, although it is alleged that he would pay, without hesitation, $25,000—or even $50,000—apiece for the votes that he requires. The feeling of hostility to him in the.Regular Republican party is so strong that he cannot possibly get any support from that source, and the Democrats are confident that none of their men would dare to sell out
