OFFICIAL RECORDS SHOWING
WHAT HIS POSITION WAS.
Proof Tlmt lie Held slue
up to the War
und That Mr. Htoekley - » Hands
in all Other Matters.
The Gazktte charged with a directness
which admitted of noxloubt borne time ago,
that Albert L'urrey, the Republican candidate
for Governor, who now la represented to be
the friend of education, progress and the
colored man, was a slave-holder up to the
time the emancipation proclamation was
issued. Mr. Currey'a position now is very
much at variance with that which his past
actious have advocated. He seems to be the
most progressive citizen in the State, and
bis letter lo Lis fricud, Dick Harrington,
published some time age, showed that Mr.
L'urrey on paper is the friend of education,
while the Gazettk has shown that Mr.
Lurry in private life has been one of the
deadliest enemies free sehools ever had in
Sussex county. Since the Gazettk charged
that Mr. Currcy was a slaveholder, his
friends have been unwise enough to say -it
was uot true. They have even Raid that
Mr. Stockley had owned slaves. The
Gazette had said it could give proof of its
charges, and it now given the proof. It
covers the fact that Mr. Currey was
owner of slaves up to the time they were
freed, aud that Mr. Stockley never owned
any. A search of the assessment lists of
Sussex county shows this, and the follow
ing has been given for publication .

Clork of tho Peace.
This sets at rest all denial of the Gazette's
charges of Mr. Currcy, and shows him in
his true light. People when they read It
need not wonder why the colored Republi
cans in Sussex will not vote for him.

MEETINGS AT VARIOUS PLACES.
Democratic Meeting In Institute Hull—
Address by Mr. Lore—A Dig Daily at
lion. CharleH B. Lore was announced to
speak from a stand at Sixth a King street»
on Saturday cveuiug. At 7.30 a large
crowd had collected to hear him, tho baud
was ou hud uml thestaud was lighted up,but
at the request of the arator, who had been
speaking continuously throughout the State
for some time, the meeting was adjourned
to the Institute Hall, which w
The meeting was organized by naming
the following officers :
President, George O'Neill: Vice Presi
dents, William Blake, John Mahouey, James
Carmichael, Joseph N. Looling, James W.
Ware William McMenamiu, Edward John
son, Rotiert C\ Shaw, Alfred S. Denny:
Secretaries, William B. Norton, August
After being Greeted with a storm
applause, Mr. Lore began by saying that
though feeling unwell, he warned to meet
his Wilmington friends face to face and
talk freely and houestly of the campaign.
There had been such a wi le range of ques
tions, all of which had been so thoroughly
discussed that he hardly knew what there
was of interest to say. He spoke of how the
Democracy had stood shoulder t:> shoulder
in the past through all the trials aud
pression of the war and still stood solid
the liberty of mankind.
To be a Democrat
party who is
is to belong to
rushing on to victory
November 7 to settle the most corrupt party
in existence. The Republican party seemed
to believe that the mechanics and working
men were children and wanted to feed them
on milk. A fragment of the party, three
men, were running the whole thing in this
He then explained the matter of protec
tion as the Republican party taught and
understood it—a protection that protected
tho capitalist, who, while making 50 per
cent, on his money, was paying to his work
men only about one-tenth of that amount.
Tariff, as Mr. Hastings understood it, was
the putting of the labor of many into the
pockets of the few.
He then gave the derivation of tho word
tariff', which came from the name of a little
town in Spain, Tarieffa, commanding the
entrance to the Mediterranean,
years ago, the Moors had control and col
lected a toll from all vessels that entered the
channel. If tariff means protection to
workmen he would favor It. The Republi
cans say it means high wages and money
enough for the workmen to lay something
by. But the panic of 1873 proved different,
and the mechanic was getting paid less than
he was 20 years ago. It is not the tariff
which protects the people. It is the in
born skill, brain, head aud hand work
the American mechanic. Throw him on the
prairies and he will make for himself a home
in the wilds and the wilderness.
He dwelt at some length upon the subject,
and declared that tariff means protection
for American capitol and free trade for
American labor. Capitalists were not work
ing for their employ«* but for themselves.
lie then took up the matter of Stalwart
ism, giving the minute details of the origin
of the term "Stalwart" and what it meant.
He told how the honest element of the Re
publican party in New York repudiated
Folger because, while being a good und up
right man, he was nominated by forgery and
fraud. In Pennsylvania, too, the Independ
ent. movement had sounded the death knell
of Cameron, who represented the Stalwarts
He concluded by saying that victory was
in the hands of the Democrats, and success
on Tuesday meant a Democratic president
in 1884. Mr. Lore spoke an hour and a half.
OTHER DEMOCRATIC RALLIES—AN OLD
FASHIONED DAT AT SMYRNA.
The Democrats of Upper Kent county,
Saturday, rallied in gennine, old-fashioned
style, and treated the town of Smyrna to a
demonstration that fairly astonished the in
habitants. It looked like a revival of the
paign spirit oA '44, and old residents
declared that nothing like ^ had been seen
Visitors began to flock into town at an
early hour, and by 11 o'clock the main
street was cleverly crowded for several
squares. About 12 the procession started,
and the cavalcade moved over the principal
streets, to the great admiration of the spec
tators. It was a unique and interesting
sight. First came about 125 horsemen, who
rode well and displayed a fine
lot of animals, while horses and
riders were gaily decorated with
flowers, evergreens and small flags. They
were followed by a line of wagons and
riages, extending for a quarter of a mile, all
trimmed up in holiday style and some of
them carrying suitable political mottoes.
The school question, as now agitated in
politics, was made a prominent feature of
the parade, and one wagon, containing
three or four imitation colored children
seated among others whose skins were un
touched by burnt cork, was labelled as an
illustration ot "Our Schools Under Republl
Rulc, while the next wagon, filled with
a mc.Ty lot of youngsters, among whom
colored children were not to be found, car
ried a banner on which was inscribed, "Our
Schools Under Democratic Government.
No Mixed Schools for Us."
Two bands—the Diamond State of Mid
dletown and the State Capital of Dover
furnished music for thé parade, and per
formed acceptably. After marching through
principal streets the procession dis
banded. Among the cavalcade were large
delations from Kenton, Clayton "Leipsic,
and the neighborhood adjacent to Smyrna.
In tlie afternoon at 3 o'clock, a meeting
held on Main street, the speaking being
from a f-fcand erected opposite the
Smyrna House. Colonel Henry Clay Doug
lass presided, and an audience of about 500
voters listened attentively to a speech of
two hours' duration by Hon. Thomas F.
Bayard. Tho balcony of the Smyrna House
was crowded with ladies. Mr. Bayard
spoke of Delaware's high credit and honest
government, referred to the corruption that
»revailed in the Republican politics of New
lampshire and other States, alluded to the
gigantic almshouse thefts in Philadelphia,
and dwelt at length upon the personal and
political character of some of the chief
leaders in the Republican party of Dela
He alluded particularly to the indict
ments pending against the Chairman of the
Republican State Central Committee, and
held that men of such character
to be entrusted with the political coutrol of
an honest and honored commonwealth. Mr.
Bayard also referred to Stalwartism and its
evil effects upon the politics of the country,
and closed with an earnest appeal to his
hearers to go to the polls on Tuesday and
vote to keep the State government iu the
place of those who had managed it so wisely
and judiciously in the past. At the conclu
sion of his speech the afternoon meeting ad
Ilockessin last evening.
West Grove bands Were in attendance and
enlivened the occasion by discoursing some
excellent music. John M. Phillips was

A Difficulty Between the Citypml the E.
L. Martin Democratic Club.
Tlie Ninth ward is somewhat agitated
over what can be termed "The Old
Academy Muddle." The trouble as utyout
this way ;
On Wednesday last the E. L. Martin
Democratic Club received notification f
Llerk of Council Fraim to vacate the build
ing by the next day, as it had been rented to
other parties. The club had been in po
sion of the premises for some time timcland
objected to being so summarily ejected. They
therefore refused to e*o, being advised to
the notification was supposed to be
a little dodge or bulldozing scheme on the
part of the Republicans.
On Saturday, by request of
Abner Bailey, Chairman of the
Public Buildings Committee, Mayor
Walvs detailed Sergeants Decker and Hat
ton and Officer Raymond to eject the Mufti
Club and take possession. When the offi
cers arrived they thought tho building Was
locked, but it was not, and commenced! to
climb into the hack window. A menibei- of
the club saw this and asked Officer Ray
He said he had

he wanted possession.
The officers,who were accompanied by Lclun
oilman Grubb, then v.cnt up stairs,'forced
the door of the club room, and told the
members who had gathered that they
wanted them to take their traps out. Mr.
Grubb put new locks
demurred, and e[#id
the door, locked the
building up and went away. The keys were
given to Dr. Shortlidge. Saturday night Hie
members borrowed the keys and held an in
"Why," said one of them last night, "we
have spent $75 or $80 out of our own pock
ets fixing up this room. When wc came
here there were no curtains and noth ng
else. We whitewashed and painted. Wh *n
else wants to meet here Iwc
always go out, and let them alone and pay
all gas bill ourselves." "Yes," said another
"and all this Is done for political spite. The
Republicans boasted when they carried the
election that they'd put us out of here.
They said the Republicans should have con
trol of this building. I am iu favor o? test
ing the case in court. They can't put
out on such short notice." This seems to
be the general opinipuof tho whole club and
it was stated Inst night that a warrant had
been issued for the arrest of Officer Ray
The Republicans claim that when Robèrt
A. Taylor was chairman of the Public
Building Committee of Council ho gave the
Martin Club privilege to use the building to
keep it from going to decay, with the under
standing that possession should he given to
the city authorities upon demand. Coin
plaints had been made, they say, that the
building had been complained of from many
residents of tie Ninth ward, w ho objected
to any political club occupying it. Besides,
one of the city officers stated, the city have
found a tenant for the building, so that it
will be a source of income.
Clerk of Council Frai
that A. P. Beecher had rented the building
for oue year, paying In advance, but lie w|is
not certain. Mr. Beecher, however, ,
he has rented it Tor only one munth, ami -'it
will be used for election purposes only/'

Beecher, was having tlie stove repaired i[t
his own expense, ro thut the place may he
heated. He doesn't know what else lie will
do with the building, hut "mav possibly
start a branch photograph gallery."
8omc persons state that the city charter
provides that tlie building shall belong to
and he for the use of the citizens of the
Ninth ward, but no provision of that kind
could be found by a Gazette reporter this
morning in a 6enrch through tho laws and.
ordinances on tho subject. If, as the H<|
publicans claim, the hall is for tho use af
the citizens, what right has the Publie
Building Committee to rent it to a private
citizen lor a mouth or a year 1

and no doubt there Is something behind

FRAUDON FOOT IN KENT
LLEGAL DEMOCRATIC TICKET
AN " 0 " WITH A CROSS IN IT.
Republican?), In Their Desperation, Piny
a Roltl Game to Throw Ont the Whole
Democratic Vote of Kent County.
A most daring and ingenious attempt at
fraud ha« been discovered in Kent county,
fortuuately in time t*> render it ineffective,
aud its exposure has been so prompt that ft
will fall flat and only hurt those who
arranged the plot.
The scheme was to have some small and
indistinct mark appear upon the Demo
cratic ballots, which would render tba
tielccts illegal under a strict construction of
the uniform ballot law. The law says there
shall be "no distinguishing mark what
ever," on any of the ballots, and that so far
as their contents are concerned they shaft
be the same.
The tickets were printed at the Delawarean
office and distributed on Saturday In the
various hundreds. A close examination of
them shows that every ticket can be thrown
out, if the quoted technicality in the law ia
brought Into play by the three Republican
Inspectors in Kent. On each ticket in the
word Governor, which heads the ticket, lu
the middle of the letter O there
small and faint cross.
No other theory can be given than that
the employes of the Delawarean who printed
the tickets have been paid to put up the
job. In the printing it would be necessary
to have a special casting of type for the
peculiar letter O which is used.
There is a suspicion that a well-knojrn
gentleman in this city, who bas had con
siderable experience with printing and types,
has had something to do with the plan.
Any way the scheme is just on a par with
many of the past exploits of Chairman
The «parlous tickets have been called in
and new ones will be printed.

lodged in jail on Friday for having destroyed
some mail matter which he had obtained
for his employer, Mr. Reese, from the poet
office. There was nothing valuable lost. *
The lad did the act through revenge, having
had a quarrel with one of the clerks in the

playing at school a few* days ago, fell and
broke his leg.
Tho Cloture Question.
Mr. A. M. Sullivan iuformed a reporter
in Boston on Saturday night of the reason
why the Irish party voted with the English
Government on the cloture question in Par
liament last Thursday night. They voted
against Sir Stafford Northcote's amendment
proposing a two-thirds majority instead of a
bare majority. "This was an ingenious but
very shabby artifice to establish a cloture
which should uever hit the Tory party and
which should crush the Irish party. Glad
stone's cloture will hit Tory and Home Ruler
alike. The Tories are always sure of having
more than one-third of tho House, but the
Irish party (which onlv numbers 102
bers out of 652) is not."
No special change is reported in the
dition of A. Bronson Alcott.
