A TRIAL BY TELEPHONE
THE CASE OF THE ROBBED
CHIEF HA WEIHS' STATEMENT;
Ha Raya Ha Old Not Stand in With tua
-Law on tha Hatjaot of
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 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
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
"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
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.

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.

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

A Kinging Opinion on tho Political Hit na
tion—Republican» to Repudiate Their
[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
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

time thereafter. With Harrington Attorney

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.

now seems much more than probable, they

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

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.
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

plished musicians of
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.

Mr. Kenuey asked by what authority the
superintendent had sent a note to principals

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
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

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
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
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

SEXTON REDDY BEATS HIS PRIEST
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.
