LOCAL HAPPENINGS SINCE
SATURDAY NIGHT.
OPPOSED TO A MARKET CHANGE
Pooplo Firmly Lxprs.s Themselves In
Favor of It Htoying on King Stroot-
Boasons for Tbolr Position.
The opponents of the plan to move the
market from King street are moving In
force, and such pressure Is likely to be
brought that the pending ordinance will
either be killed by Council or so amended
aa to do away with the provision to put part
of the market on French atreet. The portion
of the ordinance providing for the removal
to French street Is a very unpopular one.
Even the people in that thoroughfare, resi
dents and business men alike, are opposed
to It, while on the other hand King street Is
almost unanimous In the desire that tbs
market be allowed to stay there.
A very weighty argument agafnat any re
moval Is that on French street there la at
least 600 feet of space In front of the stables,
engine bouses and placea of business which
could not be occupied, against about 100
leet on King atreet. Then on King street
there Is a great deal of space not in front of
any residences or business houses, lor ex
ample In front of the City Hall yard, the
Central Presbyterian Church and on King
street below Ninth. French street la very
dusty and the farmers show a decided oppo
sition to going there.
The following Is the text of the remon
strance which will be presented to Council
at Its next meeting with may hundred aigna
tnres:
"To the Honor able, the Mayor and City
Council of the City of Wilmington : We,
the uuderslgned citizens of Wilmington, do
most respectfully remonstrate to your hon
orable body against the removal of the far
mer's market from King street. We repre
sent that we believe said King street to be
tbe most suitable place for the accommoda
tion of our people lu general. That It Is
central and easy of access by two street rail
ways. That it Is a paved street and easily
cleaned. That It Is sheltered from the wind
and free from dust. That there 1» not a
great deal of travel on King, the travel
mostly passing up Fourth street, which is
of easy grade, not paved and quite dusty.
If It be claimed that Madleon street would
be suitable for part of the market we would
say that experience proves that practically
the farmers would occupy but one street
unless they Immediately approximate each
other. If it be set forth that mere room la
required the market can be exteuded out
King to the east side of the Court House,
making It convenient to the people of West
Wilmington and over tho Brandywine."
Iu addition to the above there will bo a
petition from tho farmers asking that no
change be made, remonstrances from resi
dents and property-holders on Madison and
French streets aud letters from business
houses Id the laßt named thoroughfare.
TUE EFFECT OF THE CHANGE.
The general feeling now is not that ol op
position to giviur a market on Madison but
to moving the King atreet market lo Freneh
atreet. It Is urged that the King atreet
market lias become In time an established
Institution, and that tho change would
create a very disadvantageous confusion,
which it would take a long time to get over
and adjust.
and adjust.
A well-known citizen gave some very
sensible views on tho subject to-day. Said
he : "I do uot see auy use In changing tbe
market now. Wilmington is a growing
city, and It will only be a matter of a few
years when the curbstone market will be
done away with altogether, and tho farmers
seDt to ma4*ket houses which are bound to
come. Now suppose
shifted over to an entirely new street, say
French street, from King where through all
these years it has gradually become what a
market should lie. Well, It would take
about three or four years for things to get
wouldn't have
the market was
settled down, and then
as good a market as they have on King
one-half as convenient. Then
street,
along would come City Council and the
Legislature, and a law would be passed pro
viding for market houses, and that would
be the end of it."
CHRISTMAS TREES.
W1H They be Sold ?—Dealer» Get
ting Anxious.
The dealers iu Christmas tree* are greatly
exercised over the enforcement o! the
market ordinance. By the strict letter of
the law they are debarred from exposing for
sale, us has been the custom, their cedars
and evergreens on the sidewalks and In the
GMcrk Hickey is overrun with
Whti
streets.
parties making inquiries as to what is
to bo done this season.
The clerk states that he has no discretion
iu the matter, 08 both tho ordinance and his
oath stare him in the face, and he lias to
obey the one and keep iuviolate the other.
It is a fact, however, that those who raise
trees are, by the ordinance permitted to sell
produce raised on their own property. The
evergreens can be classed under that head,
and when brought to the city iu wagons
and sold on thq sidewalks the Clerk cannot
interfere. The general dealers, however,
will find they are debarred from any privi
leges heretofore allowed when the ordinance
was virtually a dead letter. The Mayor has
beeu questioned In regard to the matter, but
having no jurisdiction In the premises all in
quirers are sent to the Clerk.
The enforcement of the ordinance will
avoid one possibility, by the way, and that
is a repetition of the snow and tree blockade
at Fourth and Market streets two years
ago.

A correspondent furnishes the following :
ng of the Delaware State
Grange, held at Dover, the following pr^
amble and resolutions were Introduced end
discussed In a spirited and determined man
ner by the members belonging to nil politi
cal partie# and unanimously adopted and a
committee appointed to prepare petitions,
to be circulated by the members of the
ordinate granges throughout- the entire
State, asking the Legislature to enact laws
that will prevent In the future such corrup
tion of the ballot, as Is alleged to have been
practiced at the late election by both politi
At the meetl
eub
cal parties.
Whbbeas, We view with alarm and dis
gust the Increase of bribery and corruption
at our elections. That the open bribery of
voters st our elections Is a dlagrac
State, therefore,
Reeolvea, Tbst we petition the Legislature
to pus a law disfranchising any voter for
that election at which he shall have taken
any compensation or reward of any kind for
e to our
his vom.
The following extract from the
Worthy Masters report on "Representation"
was referred to the Committee on co-opera
tion. "Tbe war of the Revolution was
caused by taxation without representation,"
but I appeal to you if our laws
are what they should be on this
subject. It must appear plain to every
unprejudiced pereem that they are not. Let
the minority be ever so strong they are
practically without a voice in the Council of
he State. I care not whether this is Demo
cracy or Republicanism. I believe it to be
right and in the interest of the whole people
and we should endeavor to right tbe wrong
at this wintere session of the Legislature.
We should acquaint our reprepresentatives
with our wishes lu this respect.
The Committee on Co-operation made the
following report, which waa unanimously
adopted :
"Laying aside all party distinctive lines
S our committee are firmly of the pinion that a
eslthy condition of 'Political Economy'
demands that a minority party should in
all cases be represented. Fully persuaded
of this fact, we would urge the necessity of
'co-operation' ou the part of this State
Grange the county and subordinate Granges
as well as every Individual member of our
organization in bringing about a reform In
the matter of equal and district representa
tion."
Tbe report was adopted unanimously,
when Brother Dean offered the following :
Resolved , That there be appointed a com
mittee of three members, from each county,
of this Stute Grange to place before the
people ol Delaware by petition or otherwise,
as the committee may deem best, the senti
ments expressed in the Worthy Master's ad
dress and eudorsed by tbe Committee
Co-operation.
The Master appointed as the Committee
from New CastlQ county, William Dean,
Thomas F. Dilworth, Henry Thompson ;
from Kent county, Bros. Hiram McCaulley,
I. G. Brown, E. A. Bancroft; from Sussex
county, George W. Horsey, William P.
Thompson, William B. Records.
The committee made a partial report in
the form of a petition as follows :
To the Honorable the Senate and House ef
Representatives of the State of Delaware in
General Assembly met: —Your petitioners,
citizens ot the State oi Delaware, respect
fully ask your Honorable bodies to take
such action at an early period of your session
as will be necessary for the calling of a con
stitutional convention to alter or amend the
present constitution or adopt a new one that
shall meet the wants of the people of our

The Pension Klepliant.
[Utica Herald, Rep.]
It is estimated at the Pension Office that
nearly one-half of the men who participa
in the war of the rebellion on tho side
the North are now represented
pension rolls. We cannot increase the
numter without making more conspicuous
the discrimination against those who remain
unprovided for. We cannot pension all
without mortgaging the country. We
had better stop than go on. Particularly is
this the ewe when we know that as the bars
go down the temptation to fraud increases,
and tho fraud attempted also increases.
The present pension roll must be sifted by
publicity, and even theu further additions
to it are not to be tolerated.

of doubt that Dorsey was au

Dorsey and It will, we believe, be the general

mean to say that Dorsey was such a friend
