A Decided Objection to the Change,
Both on King and Fr#noh Streets—No
Opposition to Madison Street Having a
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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,

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
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

New York, Dec. 19.—The New York
Farmers, which is a society of limited num

tural Experimental Station at Geneva, and
E. Burnett, of Farmingham, Mass.
All of the members were in their places,
General Grant sitting next to his Long
Branch neighbor, W.*B. Dinsmore. At the
the close of the dinner the president intro
duced Dr. Sturtevant who gave an interest
ing account of the station whose work
he is now* superintending. His main point
was that Eastern farmers
conduct their business profitably, in the face
of western competition, by raising the
quality of their product, aud lor help in
this they must look to that class of agri
culturists who, like the gentlemen present,
did not farm so much for its material résulta
as from a genuine love of the soil.
