HAND STAMPS, dcc8-l-10 NO MOVING THE MARKET THE PLAN TO TAKE IT FROM KING STREET OPPOSED. VIEWS OF INTERESTED PEOPLE A Decided Objection to the Change, Both on King and Fr#noh Streets—No Opposition to Madison Street Having a Market. If public sentiment on King and French streets will have any weight with Council the proposition to change the farmers' market from the former to the latter thoroughfare haa been practically strangled at Its birth. In the face of the opposition the city's "Awful Dads" will hardly dare to pass a measure, which, in its present shape, Is so unpopular. The Gazettk to-dav pre sents to its readers interviews with all the residents and business men on King French streets who could he found. T contain the expressions of many hundred people and have been gathered with care aud only after great trouble, and they show Just how the people on these thoroughfares —the most Interested ones—feel ou the sub ject. and liese In King .treet from Second to Eighth 78 persons give their views. Of these 55 are business men located upon the street and 23 are private residents. Not one business man is opposed to the removal. Of the residents 4 want the market to remain where it is, 15 want Jt removed to market houses, aud 1 wants the ordinauce passed. Out of the whole number 33 are perfectly willing for the market to be divided between King aud Madison streets. The result of the interviews on French street, where the opinions of 34 persous were obtained directly,showed that 18 didn't care which.way it was or else said it made no difference, but thought a change was not needed. Ouly 6 declared decidedly as wantiug the market or favored it, aud 10 were strongly agaiust the proposed division. From reliable sources it was also learned that uearly all the occupants of private residences above Sixth street wen? opposed to the change on the ground that it would he a nuisance. In the western part of the city there is a very general desire to have that part of the ordinance providing for a Madison street market passed, and on that street tielow Seventh there is no opposition to it. The 1,500 petitioners have been almost doubled aud there is some likelihood of the Kiug and Madison street forces combining. It was not deemed necessary to get the views ol Madison street people. ON KING SiKEKT, Expressions of Opinion, Short and Long, Against the Proposed It «inoval. The reporter whose weary task it was to canvass Kiug street yesterday afternoon, soon found that the views of the people had about them all the sameuess of the endless story of the birds aud the corn. They were all the same way, and the sentiment was opposed to any change. Commencing at Second street, the reporter went over the ground carefnily. George \V. Gray, grocer at 8ccond and King, said: "King street is the best street in the city for a curbstone market aud French street with its dust, ete., is the worst. There is no reason for its removal, and in my opiniou this Is all gotten up by the hucksters who were driven off the side walk. Every advantage of location and surroundings is possessed by King street, and I do not favor it simply because it is to my husiuese interests to do so." Dr. N. B. Morrison, druggist at Second and King was emphatic in his declarations agaiust the change to Freuch street, hut had no objection to having a market also on Madison 6trcct. He bad given $2,000 more for his property on account of the market, and it would he mu outrage on persous who had bought and'Improved real estate to move the market. Jacob Pusey of the Kennebec Ice and Coal Company, at Second and King is not in favor of the removal if business houses could have desired space in front of their places, lie favors having a market on both King and Madisou streets. Nicholas Jenney, dyer, No. 210 King, thinks it was decidedly to his interest to have the market remain aud sees no reason for a removal to Freuch street, lie wants all the market ou King street. George E. Wheeler, grocer, No. 220 King, thinks there is no earthly reason lor the proposed change to French street. He favors giving Madison 6treet the market, hut doubts if the farmers would gather aud thinks people would come on into King street even il they did. F. Herting, gunsmith, No. 225 King, opposes the removal to French street. Rlgney & Stewart, Mrs. W. W. Simpson and Mrs. M. E. Riley are decidedly in favor of having the market remain on Kiug street, but do uot particularly oppose giving Madi son street a market also. R. Pa*ry, Jr., No. 234 King, doesn't know what has gotten Into the people, and thinks it would be disastrous lor large business in terests to move. He is just about to buy or lease the building he occupies, and to take the market away would n.ukc at least $150 difference in the rental. If he buys and the market stays he will make extensive im provements. T. J. Ilanna, No. 211 Kinr, was opposed to the Market being moved to French street, hut was willing to let Madison street try the experiment ol having a market. A similar position was that taken by A. Chambers, No. 215 King. J. Money, No. 217 King, wanted the market to stay on King, hut was williug to divide with Mudison. Joseph Stoeckle aud the Lcgg Brothers opposed to the market going off of were Klne street. , , . Francis McMonaglc, at Third and Kins: wanted the market taken off to French and Madison streets. With the market on King he has to ;>ay double rent, and the change would improve property lie owns on Freuch 8 TL. Jauney, Nos. 801 and 303 King was in lavor of letting w ell enough alone. He willing to have a division between King was aud Madisou streets. W. H. Short .t Co., No. 305 King, think King street Ih the most desirable street in tawu aud French 6trect utterly unfit for the purpose. They are opposed to the Madison street market and think lt wouldn't amount to anvthiug. . M. -Viseldom, No. 307 King, Is one of the leading advocates of King street, but will uot light Madisou street if they let It stay on King street also. ... . , . Gary, No. 30# King, is opposed to auge or division, and lives on Madi R. P. Gary, No. 3UW Ring, is oppiweu iu any change or division, aud lives on Madi sou street. H. C. Sipple, No. 309 King, is also op posed to any change or division. John Graham, butcher, No. 311 Ktog, said: "I atn satisfied for a division to be made between King and Madison streets. Nothing Is tob« gained by moving to French. Mv lease here expires in March, aud I ßup nose. I could readily follow the market to that street, but I believe lt is not suitable for a market. The dust there is feaarful. If I could see auy benefit to be secured to the citizens by the «hange I should not op pose it. I doubt if a market on Madison street would be a success. " cT'MÏifdfetonwa. opposed to moving French street for three reasons, and would be even if he was not in business on to King street. First, if the market was divided it would be so very poor that people would have to go to both before they got what they wauled. Second, the people on Kiug street have made it what it in and their large business inte rests should be respected, aud one-half or one-third of their business not taken away. Third, as soon as you divide the market you put people to a great inconvenience in removing ft from the busi ness centre. C. A. Arnold, No. 316 King street, was opposed to removal to French street and a division to Madleon. Welsh, Sharp A Co., No. 814 were op posed to removal to French street, for the reason that King street was the best for a market and French unsuited In every way. They had no particular objection to a divi sion, in favor of Madison street. Albert Hambright, No. 812, was opposed to any change aud to all division. Mrs. Parry, 810 King street, was opposed to changing the market at all. William AleeuUer, No. 808 King, was against the removal because he does not think French street sidt&ble for a market. He is not opposed to Madison street having a market. A. L. Calvert, V. & A. R. Tatman and L. W. Stockley oppose removal, but do not object to Madison street getting part of the market. Taylor & Fullerton, 802 King, do not want any removal or division. Madison street I« too narrow for the market and not a fit street at all. Dr. J. II. Simms said : "I bave no choice whatever so far as mv interests are concerned and have declined to sign both the petition and the remonstrance. I have these views, however,that it would be sense less to move to such a street as French ; thousands of dollars have been invested on King street on account of the market and to move It away would be a calamity to the business Interests of the city. I do not think the people would attend the Madtson street market, and think It would be as great a failure as the old .Twelfth street market house, which people living in Bran dywine walked past to coine clear down to King street. There is another Important matter. I understand that the farmers are opposed to any change. Now, I think the wishes of the farmers should be slightly re spected. I kuow that 15 or 20 Braudywine farmers have been driveu from here by our public spirit toward them, and the ebauge will Injure us even more." J. C. Massey, 403 King was in favor of letting the market remain and did not think the Madisou street market would succeed. Ho criticised the bad spirit shown toward the farmers, and hoped the market would be allow ed to slay on King street. J. N. Harman, 410 Kiug opposed the change from King street aud said French street was the most dirty of all for a market except Fourth. He did not object to part of the market going to Madison. Weges was opposed to the change to French street. J. 8. Shoemaker, No. 403 King, gave it his unbiased and disinterested opinion that the proposed move was senseless, but wa* in fi jt ct to Madison trying the experiment of a market, but doubled it It would succeed. Said W. D. Pickels of Filth and Kin,;: "If I could see any advantage In French street I would not say a word. My personal interests would not influence me at ail. 1 heller« I ct <i my ness despite the market, hut French street is not suited for a market aud King street is. It is the centre lor produce and King prices on Madison street would rather he an ad vantage, and I fuvor it. If it succeeds I shall be glad, iudoed." Isaac Dllliu, No. 407 King, is opposed to any cliauge or division. W. T. Hickman, No. 411 King street wants no change to French street, but is in favor of a Madison street market. \V. S. Ileislcr, No. 415 King is against a change to French street, but not opposed to Madison. Councilman A. A. Eostburn In his stall at No. 410 King declined to make any state ment, but is known to he in favor of King street. "You will find out how 1 stand next Thursday night," said he. W. II. Carr, No. 421 and 8. N. Smeltr, No. 423 King, are in favor of Kiug aud Madison. Joseph Lloyd, Fifth and King streets, is opposed to French street, because it is unfit lor a market. He has no objection to an additional market on Madison street. S. F. Ware, Fifth aud King, wants the market to remain on King street, but docs not object to Madison. I. II. Frank. No. 503 King, is emphati cally down ou a change to French street, lie has signed against Madison street, hut had nn idea it would get part of the market . J. R. E. Montgomery, 505 King deemed the effort to move the market to French street, and outrage, lie had heard a lead ing property owner in west Wilmington says the Councilman who voted for the ordinance was either a fool or had been bought. He favored market houses after two or three* years. French street would be horrible for 1 a market owing to the. dust. He did not oppose the market on Madison street. J. H. Fulton, No. 507 King was opposed to both French and Madison streets. A. Richardson, No. 509 King wanted the market to stay where it is. "Let them have a market on Madisou street, too," he said, >t amount to anything anyhow." Hanby & Rubio, 511 King wanted all the market to remain ou Kmg street. Dr. J. K. Brown, Ntf 508 King streeet, was in favor of having the marketon King street. He did not find that the market people made the street unpleasant to live in at all. The idea of French street with all its dust was ridiculous. There would be great danger of accidents from the Delà ware truck and Washington engine. The market then would disturb the children in No. 1 school. James borrow of James Morrow & Sons, who lives at No. 510 King, would like to have the market moved, and is iu favor of it going on Fourth street. 6 "Wouldn't Fourth street be too dusty?" asked the reporter "l think not. If it was they could pave it " A. f'. White, So. B00 King, wants the market to remaip on King atraet. C. W. Hors, So. 002 King wanted no change made. Councilman David Stevenson, No. 604 King, did not desire to havo tbo market takou off King street John Bruce, No. 612 King, did not think it any use to move. In his opinion French street is too dirty. Market houses should he built. J. A. Wilson, No. 616 King, was in lavor of keeping the market on King street, and raised no objection to a part of it going on Madison street John Eleingi No. 618 King, had signed to have it stay on King etreet, but did not object to i-emoval of part ta Madison street. Samuel Barr, No. 6-0 King, desired to have the market removed from Kiug street, because it was a great annoyance to his family. Miss O'Donnell, No. 023 King, would he satisfied for the market to remain where it is if the meat men were kept ofl the curb stone. A. Ten M of market house«.

The main ob jections found to the moving, even admitted by those favoring the pian, are that French is dusty, that the produce would be covered with dirt not of the moat pleasant quality, und even the writer feel* the grit of a mouthful of dust received while turning the corner of Fifth and French.

The first person questioned was Joseph K. Adams, who replied good n&turedly : "I don't care a durn where it is." William J. Morrow favored the removal to Madisou and French streets; "the change will have to come sooner or later, he re marked; if put on Madison and King streets, as some favor, the farmers will stick to King street; stores on Murket street are now being sold over the heads of business men who have to go elsewhere; business will have to go to Kiug street, and there is no better place in the city for business than ou Kiug btreet between Second aud Third; the butcher shops will keep business houses from King Btreet; the King street people ure now all asking for reserved space aud thus are crowding the market people away; the markets will have to go to French street, and the question is only being put off; the change will benefit ray business; the dust is very had on French street, hut with the markets here, we can ask Council to pave the street."

I have no property on the street. Council bad better quit fooling with the market." Misses Eliza and Hannah M. Duncan— "We don't want it. It would be a nuisance." John C. Patterson, Esq., approved of street markets as he tiad been used to them all his life, and they were better lor the public health. He hardly thought it worth moving. It would make no difference to him, and he would take no decided stand in the matter uutil. he knew how much he would he affected by the chaugc. He had moved twice to get out of the way of the market, and had gone to French street for q Jet. If the market was put there it would increase the value of his property aud he could afford to go somewhere else. The people on King street had adapted their busi ness and buildings to the market aud it would be hard on them if the change was made. The cry was for markets centrally located, but a division would not work. It was tried years ago when the neat little market house was erected on Twelfth street between Market and King streets. The people of Brandv wine village at that time complained of having to walk so far to put up and occupied those who had stalls there were virtually starved out, because the wives of the very ones who had agitated an uptown market would walk di rectly past the building and go to the old places. It would bo just the same iu re gard to Madison street—the women would come down town in spite of all, as they like to be seen and talk with each other. The markets might be put on Fourth and King streets, the intersection of which was as near a ceutral point as could he found. Iu rearranging the work he and City Solicitor Turner w ere now engaged, they had not as yet decided what would be done jn regard to the market question. If the market was divided as talked of the great trouble w ould he that the farmers would all go to one place, as particular ones could he compelled to select either French or Madison streets. The lengthy and interesting conversation with Mr. Patterson may be summed up as fol lows: He took really no interest in tin change, it would suit him as long wouldn't inconvenience him, the fucrease in the value of his pioperty would pay him for having to move, the women would go where the largest crowds were, there the change, and the farmers would go where it paid the best. Dr. L. P. Bush when seen was too busy to say much, but brief!v gave his feeling iu the matter, declaring that he was "entirely op posed to having the market on French lie had several reasons for hi* opinion. Among them were the fact that French street was a resident and not a busi ness street; the cugine houses were in the way; King street is best adapted for the purpose now- used, and French was more traveled by light vehicles. He also thought that thQ beueflt derived by the pimple east ol French street by the moving would not compensate for the loss to the King street people and the annoyance along French street. R. C. Fraim said that while his family objected to huving the market on French, he personally had no interest in the matter so far as comfort or discomfort was concerned. As a matter of expediency, however, lie thought the change should be made, and he had no doubt that it would he. It would either be King and Madison or French and Madison. So many property holders along King street were reserving spaces in front ol their stores that the furmers had great trouble^) find places to hack their wagons. Another prime reason for moving it to French street was that It w'ould benefit both buyers and sellers. Besides, the market on Fourth street would then connect arouud the corner with the French street wagons, whereas now it was^hroken when the turn was made at Fourth and King. market, but when the building a city charter, in which no use in • r. « a THE TEMPERANCE CAUSE.
