CHIEF HA WEIHS' STATEMENT; Ha Raya Ha Old Not Stand in With tua -Law on tha Hatjaot of Larceny. Considerable surprise waa caused by the publication In the (JxXBTTl yesterday after noon of the else of the street peddlers, who claim to have been robbed at tbe saloon of William H. Reynolds, on Front street, who afterwards got the mouey through Chief of Police Hawkins aud Were fined for selling goods without a license. Chief of Police Hawkins makes the follow ing statement to a Gazette reporter : "The two men whose names are Albert Gratter and William Casey, came here on Sunday afternoon to talk about suing out n warrant for the arrest of parties tu William H. Rey nolds' saloon. One of them hail lost (Ü, but he had recovered It and he had no charge to make. Tbe other had lost »11 and there waa no evidence. They wild they had gone to Reynolds' place and had fallen auleeD In chairs In the back room. When they were awakened about 12 o'clock two men were In the room ; one was young Ed. Reynolds, and the other was, he thought, the bar tender. I asked tbe man If he could swear that either of the men hail takcu the money. He said , he was asleep. "They asked me to see if I could get the money. They told me that they had visited the town to see some girls, and were ac quainted with young Ed. Reynolds. I knew them to be thieves, but had uo positive proof against them. I said to them that they had been attending Middletown fair, aud* they said they bad. They also admitted to sell ing cheap jewelry on the streets Saturday night. Sergeant McConnell and myself went to Reynolds' place, the two men wait ing at the hall. We saw William H. Rey nolds, the proprietor, but his brother was not at home. Reynolds said the men were liars if they said they had lost any money in his place, and that they had slept In his place all night, even after the time they said the money had been missed. He said he would pay any mouey lost In his house, sooner than have a fuss kicked up, and gave me $11, which I gave to the men. " I then spoke to them about John Mer rick's watch, which had been stoleu at Mid dletown fair, and I suspected them of knowing about it. That mixed them all up and finally knew where the watch was; that it had goue to Baltimore. Now I had no positive evi dence on that point, and could not hold them. "1 then put it to them about peddling Jewelry on the streets. They said they had uo license, and I told them It was my duty to hold them for trial. The Mayor and me had a talk could take them go If they were satisfied, or let them give security for their appea r ance at the trials Monday moruiug, as we had day evening hearings. They said they did not want any trial, aud filially they paid $10 apiece and costa and were released. They were advised to aland fOf a bearing. Tbe case la regularly entered upon the docket." The Chief alsö denies having any connection with the gang at Reynold« 1 place or with standing in with the alleged thieves. one of them said to me that he by telsphone, and he said that I the meu's flue and costs and let ■wi THE LAW OF LICBN8B. From tbe statement of the chief, the pub lic can draw its own conclusions. The way in which the fine was Imposed is likely to cause some comment. The law of licenses requires that every peddler shall have a license, and fixes heavy penalties for violation. A clause also fixes a penalty of $10 for any peddler or salesman by sample, who refuses to show his license when asked. Tills appears to be the offense for which Mayor Wales fined Gräber aud Casey by telephone. The real offense of which the men were guilty Is that they were selling without a license. Five hundred dollars is the penalty, the law being as follows : Any person who shall deal peddler, without license, or license, or in goods not authorised by license, or shall lend or borrow a license for the purpose of truding under the same, shall forfeit and pay five hundred dollars, one half for the or any one who will The law further takes the Imposition of fines from the hands of Justices of the Peace, and makes it necessary for offenders to be held for Court. Hence the men they bad admitted to selling without license should have been remanded for a preliminary hearing aud then held for court. î or traffic contray to this for the same. The " Mascotte " Last Evening A good audience greeted the Wilbur Opera Company last night at the Opera House, and "Mascotte" was fairly given. The troupe is not so strong as a whole as the company who appeared h<*re a week or 10 days ago, and the absence of an orchest ra was sadly felt. The piano accompanist did well, however. Miss 8usie Kirwiu as Bettina and J. E. Brand as Pippo gave a happy conception of the "Gobble" song, while Miss Ray 8amuels as Flametta de veloped a rich and melodious voice. Chapman as Jiocco appeared to have no con trol whatever of his facial muscles, and sorrow, mirth, disappointment aud Joy were given with the same expression. Frank I. Frayue To-night. A treat is in store for all who go to the Opera House this evening to see Frank I Frayne in the personation of "Mardo, or the Nihilists oi St. Petersburg." His support Is the best, and the play is one that enlists the iuterest of the audience from the first. During the performance Mr. Frayne will introduce his marvelous feats of rifle shoot ing, aud his traiued dog Jack, the bear Bruin, and a cage of hyenas. Ball Flayers Fined. George Schaeffer, Joseph Fleming, John Gannon, James Haggerty, boys from 12 to 14 years of age, were each fined $1 and costs last evening by the Mayor for playing ball Windsor street, between Beveuth- and Eighth, on Sunday. - Republican Meetings. Washington Hastings and Levi C. Bird, Esq., will address a Republican meeting at Fourth and Market streets to-night. To morrow evening H. C. Conrad and 8. R. Smith, Esqs., and F. E. Bach will speak at New Castle. The Case or Frank James. 8t. Louis, Oct. 9.—Governor Crittendén is reported to have said that he will grant uo requisition for Frank James from any other State so long as a criminal charge re mains agaiust him in Missouri. LOCAL LACONICS. Sheriff Clark yesterday afternoon sold the property of William McCall to H. C. Tur nur. Esq., for $172. A number of the members of the WilbHr Opera Company witnessed the game be tween the Our Boys aud Merritt yesterday afternoou. Letters of administration yesterday were g ranted to Pearson Talley on the estate of eorge Talley, deceased, and to Calvin Nixon, administrator of the estate of Harriet Nixon and Harriet Purnell, deceased, of Wilmington. MU DOVER JUNTA. A Kinging Opinion on tho Political Hit na tion—Republican» to Repudiate Their Leaden*. [To-day's Phils. Times.] n for a clean-skirted Re publican victory In Delaware this year, and such a Republican triumph would be a blessing to the more progressive elements of the little Commonwealth ; but In Delaware as In most other States, when honest, intelli gent, progressive Republican victory was possible, the clammy hand of the Boss machine grasped the Republican sceptre and doomed the party to defeat. The " little election " held on Tuesday, when carefully analyzed, forecasts the defeat of. the Republican party In Delaware—not be cause the people wjuld not accept a trusted Republican control of the 8tate, but because the people of Delaware will not, and cannot, accept a Republican master}' that presents all the evlla of Bour bon Illiberal j-jjp^and corruption and dia by the returns of the the strong Democratic counties of Kent and Bussex, the Republicans made creditable gains, but in New Castle, where Republi canism has its best footing, the Republicans lost l>oth their power and prestige, and that indicates the loss of the State that was so nearly within the Republii an grasp. The load that has crushed the hopes of Republican victory In Delaware is the "Dover Junta," a baud of Boss political freebooters, among whom Albert Currey, George P. Fisher, Richard Harrington aud James Lofland are chiefs. Currey is the nominee of the Junta for Governor. He is illiterate man, is opposed to free schools, and believes In machine politics because he lacks the intelligence to be prominent in any other method of political control. He Is the mere dependent of Fisher, Harrington and Lofland, and it Is well understood that they have already parted the fruits of Currey 's prospective victory between them selves. They have cooked the hare and now they With Currey In the Gubernatorial chair, Harrington would make himself Currev's Attorney General ; the vacancy In the Su preme Court that is reasonably probable at an early day, will go to Fisher, aud Sauls hury's scat in the senate is Lolland's part of the machine swag. It was this now well founded apprehension that made the better element of the Republican Castle, under the lead of sue conspicuous by its abseuce at the recent Republican demonstration lu Wilmington, and that made New Castle countv dethrone the Republicans from their achievement, over Bayard himself, at the last election. Judge Fisher was the District Attorney of Washington and Harrington was his Assist ant, when the memorable safe burgl .17 was perpetrated to^shield machine crime. Fisher wf h conveniently absent and Harringto venlently on duty, when the safe bui was executed, and Harrington cool Stalwart enthusiasm lti Canada for some time thereafter. With Harrington Attorney General and Fisher tribunal would he and justice 111-befltting the sturdy integrity that has lining to even the darkest Bourbonism ; and there are many Republicans in the State who will refuse to gain a jtaHibllcan tri umph that must come statn«d*wtth inefface able dishonor. That is the lesson of the Republican defeat In New Castle on Tuesday last, where the foundation of honest Re publican hopes was shattered, and it very strongly foreshadows the election of the liberal Democratic candidate for Governor. He is not only liberal and free from the slavery of faction, hut his intelligence and integrity are undisputed. It is reasonably certain that a large ma jority of the people of Delaware would prefer some other to represent the State in the Senate ; hut all Democrats and four-tifths of the Repub licans who cau read and write, would prefer Mr. Saulshury as Senator to Mr. Lofland. Saulshury stands still when Delaware ought able times, sanctions uo and between The way was ittlc enaction." R trying to catch it. In New Higgins, parly ti as n con irglary ed his the highest Judicial of Delaware for life, there an administration of law the silver than Mr. Saulshury to advance. He is not cons and he Is a generation beh but he is honest aud others, plcuously lnd the t dishonesty an honest Bourbon and the type of profli gate uud coi rupt progress that Dick Ilar riugtou would inaugurate, all honest citi zens of every party would «uffer the ills they have rather than fly ta. the unknown evils of the Dover Junta that has Iiarring its architect. When the Democrats shall carry Delaware in November next as now seems much more than probable, they should unite in a vote of thanks to Dick Harrington and his Dover Junta as the authors of the Democratic victory. A Muck Needed Improvement. To the Editor of the Gazette : Our city needs very much that the names of the streets be placed on the lamp posts. A per walking over our progressive city not tell where he is. This should be at tended to by our city fathers, as they profess to be in favor of progress and attending to tbe wauts of our people. This much needed improvement should receive their attention at once The people pay taxes and expect such improvements to be made. Tax Payer. New Police Clothing. A contract has been given to A. A. Gil bert, of Philadelphia, for belts and clubs for the police force. The clubs of the chief and sergeants will be of rosewood with a purple cord, and the patrolmen of biokory with scarlet cord and tassels, tj. n. Rum iord »St Bro. of this city, will furnish the caps, and J. T. Mulliu à Son the overcoats and pants for the force. When the new equipments have been received and donned there will be a regular weekly Inspection of the men every Sunday morning at 9 o'clock. New Music »tore. Mr. F. Wugncr, the manufacturer of tlie celebrated Wagner pianos and orguns has leased tlie 3tore No. 726 Market street and has converted it into a palace of elegance as a show room for his elegant instruments, which he will throw open to the public on ?xt. Mr. Wagner Is probably plished musicians of Thursday one of the moat accom the age. We congratulate Wilmington on such an acquisition to her already eminent musical talent and bespeak for him a liberal share of patronage. The Funeral of Horace Spruanoe.

THE MONEY DUE THE BOABD. tile humect—Action With Ratoronoa to Repair«, A Lively Talk Ktc., Ktc. The Board of Education held Its regular fortnightly meeting last evening, consider able business Icing transacted. The follow lug order, were drawn : Repairs to old No. 4 building, »9; pumping cellar of No. 6, owing to heavy rains, »2 ; moving benches and seat* at No. 11, »5; repairs and Dew carpet at No. 18, »15 ; repairs on heater and blackboards and plumbing at No. 14, »50 ; reputrs No. 19, »4: supplies No. 11, »1* ; Chaire, etc-, No, t. By request of the Committee an order waa directed to be drawn on the City Connell for the monthly appropriation of $6,008.58. The committee of No. 6 asked for aud re ceived permission to hire a pump at a cost not to exceed $10, for the purpose of keeping water out of the cellars. Permission building a* a night school. On motion the salaries of the janitor« of schools Nos. 6 and 2 were Increased $15, making them $165. Tbe building committee oi school No. 20 was discharged after they had presented the bill of Gawthrop Brothers lor $1,257.75 for drainage aud other work. Mr. Hickman moved that hereafter pupils from the south side pf the Cbristiaua and the E eveuth ward shall not be moved from the primary schools till they have completed the second grammar grade. Consideration was postponed for two weeks. Mr. Kenuey asked by what authority the superintendent had sent a note to principals of schools to collect $1.25 from each teacher for the benefit of the Teachers' Institute. Superintendent Harlan said he knew noth ing of the matter and had not sent the note relerred to. On motion of Dr. Shortlldge It was ordered that the Board meet at 8 p. m. dur iug the winter mouths for the convenience of members. The chairman of the Committee 4, Col. Heisler, reported progress, but stated that money must be forthcoming soon. Unfortunately when the last com mittee was called the chairman said nothing could be doue by the Board to meet Its debts, because some of the sub-contractors were seeking paymeut and he wanted a check from the Board—money or not—for $3,000 due the contractor. He had received nothing definite from Mr. Seeds, but cer tainly they ought to do something definite in regard to this money question. One of tbe sub-contractors had said that he wanted money and was willing to take a note. He (the speaker) under stood that several thousands in checks already drawn against the granted to use No. 16 No. were fund and there waa no money with which to pay them. Borne measure should be adopted to meet their obligations. It was a very unpleasant position to occupy, tractor continued tbe building could be pleted so as to be occupied. There Id then be $13,000 due. The Finance Commits e were in doubt what to do. They would like to have some means or other of getting the money. There had been a meet ing between gentlemen of the Finance Com mittee and the Finance Committee of Council and they had been informed that nothing could be done till the next meeting of the Legislature. They were told to make the contractors wait. He was in favor of the Board going on and instructing counsel. Dr. Shortlldge said the Council did not know what had become of the money be longing to the Board, and the Board didn't know, but the people ought to know. If the former City Treasurer was to blame why not let the people know Î If the present City Council was to blame, let it be known. He did not think the Finance Committee of this Board had done their duty. lie was opposed to the idea of waiting till the Legislature met to cover up or screen the dirty action of somebody, by having another appropriation passed. Col. Heisler agreed with the speaker who preceded him, and thought Ihe present was the time to take hold ol the matter. The clerk read a report from tiie Clerk of Council, giving the City Solicitor's opiniou upon the matter of the $20,000. It was laid on the table. On motion the President of the Board added to the Finance Committee on the mat ter of the $20,000 loan. Bills were presented as follows and ordered paid : Catharine Gray, $8; Albert Harmon, $2; John Smith, $7.15, William R. Beatty, $62.90; William H. Foulk, $6.97; Kent Iron Company,90 cents; A.

Several hundred spectator« were at the Union street ground« yes te r d ay afternoon to witness the frame between the Oar Boys and the Merritt of Camden, N. J. The borne club have the heart to stand up asalnet any nine, but a weak place always crops out at a critical moment and demoralise« them until It Is too late to keep the score down. Wild throwing on the part of Weller and Higgins in the Brat inning yesterday gave the Merritt four runs without doubt. The boys managed to keef. the runs of tbelr opponents at a low figure Irotn the second to the seventh inning, and did well, getting in two "whitewashes." In the eighth, however, errors gave the Mer ritt six runs after two men were already out. The Boys need not be ashamed of their work, as the visitors are terrible batten and bit Ochcltree "all over the field." Oldfield Of the Hartville club, caught for the Boys. He is a little fellow, but one of the neatest and ablest players who has appeared on the ground this season. He is good in any position, and for a light weight knocks an excellent hall.

SEXTON REDDY BEATS HIS PRIEST the Chest, In Roturn for a Kick Which he Says the Latter Gave Him. Long Branch, Oct. 9.—The Rev. James A. Walsh of tbe Catholic church of Our Lady Star of the Sea, employed John Reddy as sexton, and also as a coachman. Reddy was engaged on Saturday In bottling com munion wine. Father Welsh charged him with having imbibed so much of the wine that he was half drunk. Reddy denied it, and he still says the aecusatiou was without foundation. It led, however, to a quarrel, aud Reddy took his hat and coat and started to leave the premises. He had gone as far as the front gate when the clergyman from the piazza called to him to come back, saying he wanted to 6pcak to him. Reddy alleges that having gone back, us he was half way up the stoop, Father Walsh stepped forward and from the top of the stoop gave him a kick on the chest. He then caught the clergyman by the feet und, as he d agged him down the high stoop, Father Walsh's head came heavily in contact with the steps. On the stone flags he kicked the prostrate body of the priest, it is said, and struck him in the face. He was pulled away by passers-by, summoned by Mrs. Reddy.

This Is the result Thompson's poll of the State, and It fa ne near right as be can get It. It puts the Démocratie majority tu Hamilton county at 9,000, in Cuyahoga at 1,000, la Franklin at 1,200 and In Lucas at 1,000.

No mao has enough reliable data on which to predict with anything like cer tainty. One of the best posted Republican« in the Btate says: ( I am prepare«! for a de feat and I would not be surprised If tblfi * should prove the Waterloo of the Demo cracy.' The chances seem to favor the Republican State ticket, though Townsend, its head, will be scratched more than the others. The Republicans feel sure of nlite Congressmen and are more or leas shaky about the other twelve, with a more then even chance for half of them. The Republl have been scared from the first, but hitherto when scared have always woh more than they expected. The Democrats have been confident from the start, but are 1 so that. 10 days ago. To sura it up In a word,neither side has a bit of well grounded confidence. In Cincinnati Butterworth seem s likely to get through j with possibly one or two candidates on the local ticket. The rest of the Republican nominees are rather more than doubtful, Gazbttb. CONNECTICUT DEMOCRAT*. For Connecticut's Little Giant—A Con vention of Germans Endorsing Waller and the Démocratie State Ticket. New Haven, Oct. 9.— Delegate« fro« the 24 Seuatorial district« iu this Btate, rep resenting 50 or 75 German societies, met in convention in this city to-day and endorsed the Democratic State ticket beaded by Hon. Thomas M. Waller of New London. The platform oi the Demot r.its, especially that part relating to the temperance question, met with hearty approval. Several prominent Germans who said they had voted the Republican ticket for years, among them Messrs. Greislnger of Bridge port, Kiefer of New Britain, aud Wieffig of this city declared that the true interest of all German citizens, at least at the present time, lay in supporting the Democratic tiAJu*t. To-day's convention was a most Impor , as heretofore tlie majority of the Germans have voted the Republican ticket in this State. The Germans certainly hold the balance of power, and if the several thousand voters represented attoday 1 « con veution ratify the action oi their deLetrates it is almost an assurance of Waller's election. hbbi In 41 cations.
