The Stalwart* Want to tsuance Collec
tors* Meint ire ami Thompson and Put
Home of Their Number lu.
For the first time Bine« their overwhelm
ing defeat, tho leaders of the Dover Junta
showed t K «*lr diminished h«*uds in Wllgdug
ton yesterday, and a conference which has
much bearing upon the Federal offices in
the State was held in the aftemodh. Among
the down-State politicians present
Dick Harrington. Major Jim Lofland, Harry
Caution of tho Dover tontine! , Dr. Samuel
Creadick, who is h recent recruit to the
Stalwart ranks In Delaware, and several
others. Albert Curry, late candidate for
Governor, was also on baud. The object of
the meeting was kept a secret and a great
deal of conjecture wus indulged in by the
Half-breed element. A number of tho
Wllmiugton Stalwarts joined Mr. Harring
ton's party and quite a long council took
It has leaked out that the visit of these
gentlemen to Wilmington is due to changes
contemplate«! in tho Federal offices in Wil
mington. The iKJfitive statement was made
to-day by one who 1 h in a position to know,
nnd whose word is authoritative, that these
changes include the offices of the collector
of the port and of the collector of Internal
Revenue and that an attempt is about to l>e
made to induce Mr. Mclntire, who holds the
latter office, to resign and to either secure
the removal or resignation of collector
Thompson. It will be recalled that similar
attempts have been made during the past
two or three years, but all, up to this time,
have been futile.
It is said that Major LoQand wants the
office of Collector of Internal Revenue aud
that he is determined to have It if there is
any possibility of getting tho place. The
Major, by the way, has been making efforts
for the office off aud on for the past five
years. Ills chances now are not considered
tæfore tho recent election, be
cause of the crushing defeat the party sus
tained here after making so many lavish
promises and» of the distrust with which
Lofland and his fellows
regarded at home
On the other hand,
stated thRt the .4diuini6tratlon had deter
mined to make some changes in the offices
mentioned, even before the election, and
that since that time it lias been represented
in (jcparlmcut circles in Washington that
the failure of the Republicans to carry
State was due to the apathy either of
office-holder»,whom they would now decapi
tate, or their immediate friends. The argu
ment of alleged inactivity is being assidu
ously used, and It Is deemed that this is
of the en
there were not sufficient ground before.
The position of Mr. Mclntire is a very
good one, and is not held for any stated
term. A change only takes place wheu the
lncumbeftt dies, resigns, oris removed. The
term of Collector Thompson
pire until June, 1884. Mr. Tliompeon was
appointed after a fierce contest, his rival for
the place being Harry Cannon. The friei ds
of Loth Mr. Mclntire and Mr. Thompson,
while appeariug to discredit the rumors of
auy attempt to unseat them, are evidently
uneasy. The presence of a prominent de
partment official In Wilmington
day has not tended to allay sutpiciou of
coming trouble.
Appropos of this a story is told of cer
tain bad feeliug right in the ranks of the
Dover junta, and particularly between
Chairman Harrington and Major Lolland.
It will be remembered that about four days
bofore the election Lolland and Judge
Fisher went to Washington to get the $40,
000 which hud been promised to Delaware
by Pirate Hubbell. Tin
get any money,Delaware's share having been
scut to Virginia. Lofland and Fisher had
quite u stormy interview with Henderson,
HubbcU's secretary, and a good many hard
things were, said, hut this was nothing like
what took place when Lofland met Harring
ton tue next day; aud just about the lime the
rumor- was published that the luttler
hud become Insane. It is related
that hot words passed between the
two, Harrington blamiug Lofland with being
responsible for failing to get aid from Hub
bell, and that the two men nearly came to
blows. It is now stated that Harrington is
opposed to getting any office for Lolland,
hut that of chairman of the State Central
Committee lie will insist
and he has lufiueuce in Washington if he
hasn't any in Delaware. A leading Stal
wart was asked to-day what significance the
visit of the Dover men had.
"No special significance,''* he answered.
They are up here to settle up the out stand:
ing debts.''
"Didn't they have money enough to pay
as they went?"
"Oh, dear, no. The fket Is that many
debts wore still standing aller the election.
« honoring, am! the

money, but not enough to pay all the bills.
The removal of Mr. Ma Intlre and Mr.
Thompson is not contemplated.

In this connection Mr

public the following Maternent of what
actually occurred when Bhocklef visiteu his
house in company with Peter 8. Blake and
William Morris ;
Ou Tuesday evening,
188*2, Peter 8. Blake, Wi
another colored man whom I did not know,
but who was introduced to me by Fetor 8
Blake as Robert Shockley, called at my.
house. Mr. Blake stated Shockley Was the
man who swore out a Wlfrmnt fer hiru for
keeping a gambling house
Saturday previous, aud that he brought
him dowu to ray house so he could make
a statement,as he did not wautio prosecute
him, (Blake.) Shockley said to me, iu the
presence of Peter 8. Blake and William
orris, that he had been arrested on Satur
day night, November 11, 1882, by a police
officer at Front and French streets for being
drunk and disorderly ; that he was taken to
the City Hall, and t|mt this charge was
made against him by tho officer who
arrested him. He said that Chief Hawkins

Shockley - then said that Chlal Hawkins
telephoned to Major Wales that there
man at the Hall who wanted to swear out a
warrant for Peter 8, Blak« for keeping a
gambling house ; he swid the Mayor replied
to send him up to his house with an officer,
and also to send a warrant ; tic said he

it to be Mayor Walea% but III; Was so drunk

Shockley if he knew the officer who arrested
him and he said he did not. 1 asked
hlrh if the officer locked him up ,
he said he did not; I told him if lie bad
been locked up, *pd h»d been released with
out a hearing, he could have him arrested
for false imprisonment. He baid again be
did not know who the officer Was and that
he did not know what he was doing when
he swore the warrant out, for he said he was
drunk when arrested and tlmt he had not

Norristown, Nov 28.— The Interest in
the Garber case Is still kept tip but no new
development* are announced as to Mho put
the poison in the Hour. A Pinkeitou detec
tive was engaged in the case a short time,
as the county commissioner* were not will
ing to incur much expense. It is stated that
be lore leaving he expressed the opinion that
that Boile;\u-i,Mrs. Garber aud Murtba Hyde
were all about right when they called each
other weak minded, D»at the poisoning was
accidental, and that Mr«. Garber was un
willing to acknowledge that she had made a
(stake. The District Attorney when ques
tioned about the matter said a detective
would not be likely to express an honest
opinion about u case which he had in hand.
On Tuesday the Philadelphia Inquirer
published an alleged interview with Mrs.
Garber which was copied in the Norristown
Time ». Jo the course of the iuterview Mrs.
Garlier is represented as intimating not that
only the Boileaus, but Martha Hyde had
a hand in the poisoning. Tho latter intima
lion, which iA not supported by a shadow of
evidence, has made Mies Hyde very lndig
uaut and she is preparing to bring suits lor
lit>el against Mrs. Garber 'and the publishers
of both the journals in question.
