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.

COURT DOINGS TO-DAY.
PROCEEDINGS OF INTEREST
BEFORE THE BENCH.
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'.

Telegraph Company was continued by
mutual consent.
The Thorne-Weldin ease was then resumed

Mr.Thnrno.

SHERIFF'S CASK IN COURT.
Th« Matter Talked About and Continued
a Duy.
Last evening E. G. Bradford, Jr., Esq.,
one of the counsel for James Martin, ap
peared before the Superior Court in answer
to a rule issued upon the petition of Purnal
J. Lynch, directing Martin to show cause
why a quo warranto should not be filed to
inquire by what warrant he exercises the
office of therilT. 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.

The emotional drama of "Hazel Kirkc''
was produced at the Opera House last even

The eomiiauy impresses one as being rather
weak. The heroine, Hazel Kirke , by Carrie
Wyatte, wus lacking in many things, but
she is a very attractive actress uud would do
better in lighter parts. Dunstan Kirkc ,
however, is deserviug of praise. The house
was well filled.

Tlic Philadelphia Record of to day says :
"The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Company
officials still insist that they will have a line
to Philadelphia at 6ome duÿ
veys for it have been made
turn of the distance. 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. A passenger
branch, to come in on the north side, at the
