■t'OKSHfl LUtWGKIlg AND
Th« Mayor was absent from the seat
at tlie City Hall, which he usually takes
■very eWaning at the stroke of seven
o'clock, and Magistrate O'Neil presided.
It was understood that His Honor was
sea-siding at Cape May.
"Michael McDonald,why did you curse
this man?" asked the Magistrate as that
gentleman took a seat near. Michael
would not volunteer an explanation and
U. W. Uleyer of the Hoard of IDalih,
who was the man who received the curs
ing, explained that he was acting in his
capacity of city deodorizer ami went to
Mr. McDonal's house and told his wife
to abate a nuisance on his premises. A
day or two afterwards Michael came to
his house and cursed him. The cursing
was what Mr. Uleyer did not like. In
liis deleiis», Mr. McDonald said that Mr.
Uleyer had came to his house drunk to
sec about the puisance and had annoyed
his wife and kepi her hack with the din
ner. "It's enough for me to be drunk
around my own house without the
Hoard of Health coming that way."
The penalty was one dollar ami costs.
Two worthless negro loafers who
have lieeu giving every possible annoy
ance around Front and Market streets
were each required to pay one dollar
remarked a hardened looking specimen
of the tramp fraternity who next occu
pied the dock. Ho was one of two
tramps whom the Chief of 1'olice anti
Officer Thomas had arrested while
sleeping in front of Hlotsuiiliurg's found
ry at the solicitation of D. L. Stewart
of tlie postoffice. Jennings resisted the
Chief all tlie way to tlie City Hall, and
inside tlie corridor hit him in tlie face.
He was drunk at the time, and very
disorderly. Fined one dollar for being
disorderly, and five 'dollars and costs
for assault and battery.
Jim l'atterson, was the name given
by tlie tramp who was tlie companion
of tlie foregoing. He was lined two
dollars and required to pay costs.
Frank Uurton, col., had cursed David
Murphy at Market street bridge over tlie
Christiana. The latter was driving a
sand cart for Win. McMenamiu and
wanted to cross tlie bridge. Murphy
asked hlin to wait till he got Ids cart
dumped and lie would clear the way.
The negro refused to wait ami forced his
horse past, breaking Murphey's harness
and hurting his horse and cursed him
in addition. Five dollar and costs was

Th 1 Peach Market.
The poach market was unusually ac
tive this morning, tlie supply being quite
large, aud the buyers numerous in ex
pectancy of procuring good bargains.
The principal varieties were Mountain
Rose, Troth's, and llxle's Early with a
liberal sprinkling of other kinds. Prii-cs
varied according to quality, and also
were graded by the tellers' ideas as to
what prices the people would be willing
to pay. For instance, one dealer on
Fourth street offered a very fair sample
at 70 aud 75 cants per basket, while just
across the street another dealer was sell
ing larger and better-looking pearlies at
<>0 and (15 cents. Fruit of ordinary qual
ity s >!d as low as 50 cents per basket,
whil, some of extra siz« and quality
ranged from 80 cents to $1.00.
It is noticeable that year by year peach
baskets dwindle in size, and their con
tents arc also made as little as posa
Instead of the fruit being heaped up to a
curve as was the case a few years ago,
the baskets in many instances are not
filled to the top. Thus,owing to the small
baskets and short measures,housekeepers
find that a basket of peaches will not "do
up" near so many jars of preserves as one
would a faw years ago.
Tlie watermelon and cautaloupe mar
ket was also very brisk this morning, tlie
supply being large and the demand
reasonably active. Small cantaloupes
sold as low as 25 cents ptr basket, and
real good ones sold for 4U cents ; extras
60 cents. Watermelons sold from 10
cents apiece upwards, according to size,
and from $10 to $15 per hundred. The
market was also well supplied will, other
fruits, as well as truck and vegetables
for which current prices were asked.

The Tax on fibgs.
HOW THE AMOUNT HAS INCREASED.
"Yes," remarked Chief of Police
Maxwell, this morning to a Garettk
reporter, "I think the amount paid for
dog tax this year will exceed that of last
year, three to one. Hold on ; I'll see."
Turning to his books the Chief looked
over the accounts and in a moment gave
the following as the receipts since the
first of the present year :
Received for Jauuary,.
" " February,.
" " March,.
" " April,.
" " May,.
" " June,.
" « July,.
" " August, (so far,) t _ _ _
Total for the year to date,... .$1,751
"This amount," continued the Chief,
"is tlie tax en 1«02 dogs that have been
registered for the year, and shows a re
markable increase over last year.
The total number ot dogs registered
last year according to the police books
was 529. I don't know what the amount
was ; they are not in these books."
Inquiry at the office of Auditor Under
wood failed to secure the Informa' ion
speedily; that gentleman was willing to
give it, but it would take much trouble
aud time to fiud it, aud tbe inquirer did
The figures secured from the Chief
show that there has been an increase in
the registeration of dogs of 1035 aud a
probable increase in receipts of about
$1000, and people may wonder at the in
crease. This is easily explained, and is
in a great measure caused by the opera
tions of the dog catcher, which has made
people, who value their dogs, more care
ful to register them.
