Control of Lands NecesBary to Re
sumption of Government Work.
WILMINGTON, Del., Jan. 27. On the
p&ssago of a bill now beforo tho Legisla
ture depends tho question of whether
' Wilmington Is to have a real front on ho
Delaware River. If tho Legislature finds
It can give tho control of certain lands to
the city, then the Government will con
tinue work on the bulkhead begun yearu
ago to Improve the channel of the Dela
ware river.
There will probably be a lawsuit, even
If tho bill Is passed, .before tho city can
Bet control of this river front, and there
Is a question In the minds of many as
to whether It can ever get It unless It
pays a large amount of money for It. Tho
people of this city have voted, however,
to obtain control of tho land.
Several years ago the Government de
rided to bulkhead along the river front
at Wilmington. Behind the bulkhead It
was Intended to fill In, with the. object
of making several hundred acres of now
land suitable for manufacturing purposes.
This land would have been on deep water
and to reach deep water from the present
shore It would be necessary to build a
Pier 1500 feet long.
It wns expected by the Government that
e land owners whoso property faced tho
Wer would assist In building this bulk
head. When It found they were not
Wing to do so the Government stopped
work and It has never been resumed. It
fM.Bal?'-J10ever bY BOmo of the of
,.m of.tho Government, that If tho city
nJaFet cntrl or the land which the
...T?PVno,?tpropo8ea t0 maka nni would

would be completed.

Modesty and Comfort Unite
to Mock at Mischief
Threatened by Short Skirt
of Fashion.
The northeast corner of Broad and
Chestnut streets; a high blustery gale
ouch ns sweeps around tho Franklin Bank
Building on a bleak day; a pretty llttlo
Philadelphia damiel trig and wind
tossed, her smnrt skirt, which fashion
has decreed must stop above her shoe
tops, flapping merrily ln the breeze. And
what has tho combination produced?
A loggln Is the answer.
If you would bo smart, If you would
be warm, If you would be modest, you
must wear legglns this -winter. Tho mod
ern woman, Hko tho little fly upon tho
wall, In tho nursery rhyme, no longer
has a "pottl-sklrt." Lnst year sho fror.o
In consoquonce, this year sho will wear
logglns. And more comfortable sho will
find them too.
"Aro wo going to put In a Bupply of
legglns?" tho shopkeeper raised a super
cilious eyebrow and his tones took on a
lofty pitch, "no, because wo already have
put ln a largo supply of them. Of courso
Philadelphia women aro going to buy
them. As a matter of fact, soma hao
mndo their purchase, nnd others aro hav
ing them made to order.
"It's an open question whether the
women are taking to them because tho
skirts of tho winter aro to bo so unbo
levnbly short that decency demands some
sort of leg covering, or because tho war
has given rise to a demand for clothes
of a military cut.
"The legglns which our women will
don start at the Instep Just as a
soldier's do," Ho got out a long black
leggln of silk Jersey with shiny black
buttons running nt regular Intervals from
tip to top. "And," ho continued, "they
will continue all tho way up to tho knee.
"You know," he went on with en
thusiasm, "doctors havo always said
that the kneo Is most sensitive to the
cold, therefore I think this custom of
wearing legglns an eminently sensible
one much moro sensible than most of
the fads which tho avcrago woman In
dulges In." 1
The legglns which Philadelphia shops
aro carrying ln their regular stock aro
either of black knitted silk Jersey, or of
velvet, however, they are taking orders
for any shade desired. Supposo, for in
stance, you aro .1 woman planning n
brown velvet suit for the piece de resist
ance of your winter's wardrobe. Tho leg
glns should match. Simply take a sam
ple of your velvet to tho shopkeeper and
presto! ln a week or so tho brown vel
vet legglns are yours. .
Onco on a windy day last winter, old
Father Penn up on top of tho City Hall
cast his starboard eyo down to the cor
ner of Broad and Chestnut streets to see
that his children wero coming along all
O. K. In that direction. But tho sight
thnt he looked upon was such that ho
almost fell off his perch. Remember It
was a windy day. and legglns wero not
ln vogue then. However, If tho fashion
makers are to bo believed, tho good old
Quaker may look where he lists this
winter with never a fear of being
shocked, for legglns have como to town.

Wilmington la Trying to Establish

WILMINGTON, Del., Jan. 27.-Flnanclal
circles hero again are Interested ln ru
mors that the Btreet railways are about
to be combined. For a number of years,
the Wilmington and Philadelphia Traction
Company, which controls tho older lino
and the- electric tight plant, has been try
ing to purchase the line of the People's
Railway Company, owned by the estate of
John Dobson, ln Philadelphia, and R. W.
Crook, of his city. It Is understood, how
ever, that the concern was unwilling to
pay the price demanded by the People's
The rumor that the People's line was
to be sold was revived recently, but later
there was talk that the People's Company
had turned the tables and made an of
fer for its old rival. Both companies re
fuse to confirm either of these rumors.
