Helsler CoeiuDt Like It When His Ox *" ( ' or ®' , - Son, ° Husineiw and Much Rail come amt Talk. There was more garrulity than u*uul at the regular meeting of the Board of Ediicu tion last evening. President Baird presided and the ffrst business done was the presen tation, reading and accepting of the resig nation of Miss W. T. Slocum as principal of the boy's depaitimut in Grammar School, No. 4. After répaîrs and slight work were au thorized to he done on schools Nos. 2, 3, 0, 9, 12, 10 and 18, the Committee ou Draius was called aud Dr. Shortlldge took occasion to make some very earnest and forcible marks about sewerage, lu connection with the proposed tapping of the drain from No. 20 school leading from Tenth and Spruce streets to the Brandywine. He said the tapping of the drain would greatly inter fere with its work, and people should look to the city. Certain newspapers had been denounced lor publishing the fact that we had Impure air and water and yet these were matters of vital im portance which cannot be gainsaid There was now some prospect of something be ing accomplished and people who wanted drains, etc., should be compelled to look to the city to give them. Jle hoped to be par doned for speaking of this mutter here, but it was of such importance that it should be spoken upon with earnestness everywhere. The preuchers should he invited to speak of it, suy lor half au hour ; they can talk about panties, and wlij uot about this most vital subject. Dr. .McKay moved that the Teachers Com mittee be authorized to till all vacancies, subject to the approval ol tl.e Board. Quiet a lively discusslou followed, Col. Heislcr being parliculury severe upon Dr. McKay, and once when Dr. Me Kay made a state ment the member from the Second ward called out, "That isn't 60 ." was laid over for one week. Mr. Willey offered the following as a sub stitute lor section 9 of the rules governing the schools : School hours a.id intermission: Morning fessions, high schools and their grammar departments, from 9 to 11.45. with no intermission; grammar and primary schools from 9 to 12, with 15 minutes inter mission. Afternoon ses.- ion; no intermis sion. High schools and grammar schools from 2 to 4.15; all grades of the primary schools from 2 to 4. The substitute was unanimously adopted. The resolution offered by Colonel Ilcisler at the last meeting of the Board asking thç special legislative committee to prepare act authorizing the Board of Education to levy and collect its own taxes aud deposit it to its own credit, was called up by that gentleman. The h The subject lotion was opposed by Mr. Kyne. The city had enough of tax collectors, he thought. Other members ol the Board were of the same opiniou. Dr. McKay now rcturneil Colonel Heis ler'a corn [»liment offered earlier in the even ing. He said, In speaking of the turc of the $20,000, that Colonel himself was more responsible than any one else iu the Board for the spending of the money. This brought Colonel Heisler to his feet iu indignation, lie said the charge was made because he was chairman of the com mittee of No. 4, but ail the other members of the committee hud signed all contracts and bills aud approved everything that had been doue. The member from the Tenth ward was trying to beat the committee over bis shoulders. The money had been spent aud what could be done t The gentleman might hurl his poisoned arrows at him, but his «boul iers were br»;ad enough aud he would bear the responsibility. Beiug called to order, the speaker said he had risen to a question of privilege,aud was allowed the iloor. A great deal more talk followed aud finally the resolution was indefinitely postponed. Bills were pasted as follows: 7.. James Belt, $3.73, Buckingham, & Co., $1; B. R. Hei6ier, Ç25; Baynnrd & Dawson, $13; Joseph Sell, $22.50; C. D. Smith, $1.50; Preston Ayres, $9.00; William M.

THE CASE OF AEOHITEOT THOHHE Another Jury Bangs Fire and 1» Dis charged—How the Balloting Stood While it Was Out. At the afternoon session of court Mr. Thorne was re-examined by Mr. Nichts, and witness declared that Mr. WekÜn had promised to pay for the work of getting up the plans, whether the witness got the con tract lor building or net ; he reiterated that Weldln had said that he had given Mr. Hice the measurements of the house, but pre ferred to have witness do the work ; Weld in insisted on Thorne bidding for the carpenter work ; witness ottered to do it for $600, but his oner was never noticed ; bid was made on Klee's plans; it took almost two weeks •olid time to make plans and specifications. J. H. Thorne, sworn—Was foreman for my brother, Edwin W. Thorne, in 1879 ; was present when Weldiu and brother were discussing plans for a house ; there were two consultations about the drawings ; Weldin said that he and his family were pleased with the plans of witness' brother. C'haunccy G. Graham, sworn— Ara au architect ; as far as I can see from the draw ings [shown witness] the work of the draw ings, according to usual rates, would be worth about 1 per cent, on the estimated cost of the building ; they are known as preliminary drawings, sizes of glass, etc., not being given ; estimates could be made from drawings as shown ; for what is pre sented here 1 per cent, could be charged, and 1 per cent, more for specifications ; 1 would charge 1)4 per ceut.,a charge usually and propèrly made. On cross-examination—Would not present such plans for bids tobe made upon ; would give a more finished piece of work for elevation ; the work is good so far as it goes, but is evidently crude ; would take a long time to make a copy of the elevation ; would take three or lour days to make other drawings, according to circumstances ; would take a day and a half to get up ele vatiou ; 2)£ per cent, is the regular rate for best architects. William R. Farrell, sworn—Am an archi tect; the only things missing ou the draw ings are the figures - ; a house could be erected from plans shown, which are not prelimi nary; per cent, is charged for finished plans with a duplicate, and 2 per cent, where contract is not given to maker ol plans; drawings are perleet except figures; they are not exactly finished as first-class drawings; they are worth 3 per cent.; a building could be constructed from them. Mr. Lore cross-examined witness closely as to the quality of the drawings and where he had been employed as an architect; all that needed to fully perfect the drawings were the figures. Considerable amusement was created by the witness, who came originally from Dublin, in .giving ready and pithy answers to what he thought were irrelevant ques tions. At 4.30 Mr. Lore stated the defendant's side of the question. Mr. Thorne, he ßtated, was a newcomer in Wilmington and had gone to Mr. Weldin to get lumber. Mr. Weldiu had not expected to pay Mr. Thorne for drawing the plans, and the latter had distinctly offered to do the drawing tree of co6t, as it "could be done at odd times." The building was doDe from drawings of E. L. Kice, and Thorne, not getting the contract, became angry and brought the suit. C. W. Weldin,affirmed—Detailed Thorne's first visit to him edit for some buslne**, and then had talked over a proposed plan to build a bouse at Eighth and Broome streets ; witness' plans were crude, and Thorne said he would like to get up plans ; witness said he had agreed to take Pancoust Allcu's note to Thome, due in nine mouths, aud also made an abatement on Thorne's bill of $48.13, iu consideration of which plaintiff was to make the drawings and specifications : the uotc was for $850 ; Thorne said nothing, in any interview, about charging for his plans ; plaintiff said beiug a new mau iu busiuess in Wilmington he would be glad to make plans aud if possible get the contract ; plaintiff also said draw ings would not cost anythiuir as he would only use leisure lime on plans ; Thorne had open account with witness, and the former said latter having done him a favor he would like to return it; expressed the fact that drawings pleased him ; told Thorne that itiee was to be the architect, and plain tiff objected ; bad another talk with plaintiff about drawings ; Thorne look away witness' rough pians, but he never returned them ; contract was made that the plans should he paid for. Plans fi which the defendant's house was built were presented, identified as being made by E. L. Rice, and offered in evidence. Examination continued—At the opening of the bids all the bidders w r ere present ex cept Mr. Thorne : the latter's bid was rejected because of the provision to build in the winter. A nuxber of bids for the building of Weldin's house, by different contractors, were presented aud offered iu evidence. After considerable legal discussion be tween the opiKising counsel the examina tion was continued, and the w itness stated thut he did not promise or offer ta pay Thorne for his drawings, even if the con tract was- not given him ; tho first thing witness knew that Thorne wanted to be paid was when the latter wrote a letter,soon after the contracts were given, asking and detnauding compensation. At the request of the jury they were dis missed at 5.40 to allow them to catch trains for home. A JURY BANGS FIIIB. Just prior to the adjournment of court the jury in the McCarty-Lockwood were brought into court and announced their total inability to agree. They were therefore dismissed. It is understood that when discharged they stood 8 to 4 In favor of the plaintiff. ol the ballots, of w hich 8 were taken the vote, stood 7 to 5 for the plaintiff'. this morning's court proceedings. John Bitrgs, Esq., read an affidavit from J. J. Lockwood, defendant iu the ease of the K romisacry uu'e, ashing that Charles E. icCarty, being a non-resident, be cora pclh d togivo security in the to secure the costs of the case, or else suffer u non-suit. Mr. Lore, plaintiff's counsel, expte s?d himself furnish the required security. The ease ol the Wilmington aud Kennest Turnpike Company vs. the Mutual Union Telegraph Company was continued by mutual consent. The Thorne-Weldin ease was then resumed •1 the direct examination of Mr. Weldin was resumed aud continued, the witness denying nearly all the statements made by Mr.Thnrno. On being cross-examined by Mr. Nieldg the witness stated that Ids conversation with Thorce began in an interview about the pur chase of some lumber by plaintiff'.

Mr. Bradford informed the court that he hod certain affidavits re lating to the ease which he did not care to file unless it thought necessary. Chas. B. Lore, Esq., of Lynch's counsel, Drought, in justice to his client, the affidavits that the substance should be filed at oucc, of the documents could lie learned. Mr. Bradford declared that no practice required him to produce or file the affidavits before the ease came to a hearing. Finally it was decided to make the rule returnable at 10 o'clock this morning, the time beiug exteuded, and Mr. Bradford was requested to hunt up authorities upon the subject or practice in such cases in the meautime. At the opening of court this morning E. G. Bradford, Esq., counsel for James Martin, reported that he had been unable to find, after a thorough examination of leading authorities, anything by which the time for filling the affidavits of a respondent in cases similar to the Lynch-Martin matter was set down. The whole question, he stated, wns whether he, as counsel for Martin, wan bound to file bis affidavits on betöre the day when the rule was returnable or not until a hearing was had. A few citations were read, but further action in the matter was postponed until the comple tion of the Tborue-Weldlu case which was before the court. A W. A N. ACCIDENT.

The fact is really iu contemplation ta told in one of the articles of Mr. Go wen'* agreement with Mr. Vanderbilt In traking connection with the lines of the latter for an outlet to Buffalo. In this article he says ; 'The Reading Company contracts and agrees with the other parties hereto that the new' line «hull have the benefit of the Reading Com pany's Baltimore & Southern railway con nections now existing or Lereafter to be cured, constructed or formed. The Baltimore Sun of to-day says : A corps of engineers is now engaged on what is known as the hfch line route ot the Balti more and Ohio railroad in perfecting that survey preparatory to the construction of their New York extension. The engineers were last week in camp about 14 miles from Baltimore, at the crossing of the Big Gun powder, and they yesterday moved on this line eastward. From Baltimore to the Susquehanna river thi6 route passes on au elevated line along a ridge distinctly marked from three to five, miles north oi the bed of the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad. By this line a high aud eligible country will be opened up for villages and residences for thirty miles out from Baltimore. At the Big Gunpowder there is an inex haustible deposit of rock available for pur poses of construction and ballasting for the road, and which will also find a market in Baltimore for foundations of buildings. It is estimated that the construction ot a road on this line, with the necessary rolling stock, will not cest as much by several mil lions as was the cost of the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore road to the Pennsylvania Railroad Company. It is understood that $15,000,000 of European capital has been tendered loau, or in other available shape, for the construction of this New York extension, and actual construction is expected to bo commenced about April next. The exten sion will connect with the main lines of the road at or near this city.
