[Special correspondence of the Gazette. ]
Dover, March 15.—The gnarl In which
Dover people became Involved over the bill
to Increase the amount to be raised by the
Town Council from $2,500 to $3,500, which
was Indefinitely postponed in the House on
Tuesday has since then become greatly
tensified. Yesterday President Day, acting
by order ©f the Town Council, which Is
raged that its bill was not passed, turned off
the gas from the street lamps and discharged
the police. Last night the town wan In
darkness, and what little protection the
"police," who are like the Wilmington
force in that they are never seen, gave to
persons and property is gone. There is a
great deal of excitement in town over the
matter, and no one yet seems to know just
what the Legislature ought to do. All
action ou the bill, it will be remembered,was
postponed until the citizens could agree.
A call has been issued, signed by "The
People," for a town meeting to-morrow
night to endeavor to reach some conclusion.
The meetiug will no doubt be like some of
the meetings of Wilmington's City Council,
and a lively aud interesting time Is expected
by disinterested parties. It is stated that an
effort will be made to put through a résolu
tlon calling upon the Town Council to re
sign, and no doubt a rare exhibition will be
afforded.

THE STATE DEBT DISCUSSED.
In the House yesterday afternoon Speaker
Bates called Mr. Ferry to the chair, took the
floor and offered the following:
Resolved , That in the opinion of the House it
In undesirable to have the State debt proper re
duced below the amount due to the State upon
the two railroad mortgagee held hy It and that,
after the bonds of the State above that amount
are paid, there should be such reduction of tax
ational* may judiciously bo made to avoid im
posing unnecessary burdens upon the people of
the State to accumulate a surplus which is not
needed.
Resolved , That the Committee
Means be and they are hereby requested to re
port to the House what legislation, if any, is ro
a ulred at the present session respecting the
nances.
Ways and
Mr. Bates stated in the outset of a speech
on the resolution that he had offered it for a
reason which the resolution itself explained.
speaking of the desirability
duclng the debt of the State less than the
amount of the mortgages held by the State
against the J. «& B. and B. & F. railroads
($600,000), which were amply secured, ex
cept as the payment on these mortgages re
duced It. Mr. Bates called attention to the
fact that the certificate ol Indebtedness held
by Delaware College for $83,000 was the
amount received from the general govern
ment for education purposes. He went on
to say that the State holds 1,275 shares of
Farmers Bank stock, the value of which was
given by the State Treasurer at $50 per
share when It was $60; and 20 shares o!
stock of the National Bank of Delaware, tbe
Alter
of not rc
value of wbich-arae m*a/«r $555 per share
than $465, which would make the total value
about $87,000,or $4,000 more than the amount
due Delaware College. A proposition which
might be worth considering would be to take
tbe securities and set apart a trust fund for
Delaware College. This would wipe off the
books a debt of $83,000 aud an asset of $87,
000. There is a bond ot the State held by
the school fund resulting from the sale ol
P., W. <fc B. bonds, which
000. It now occurs, what is to be done for
the schools ? This bond Is fixed to run 23
years from now. It Is a question whether
to increase the bond from which revenue is
derived or to increase the appropriation
from year to year. If the Delaware College
Indebtedness were arranged as suggested
and this school bond paid off the State would
be practically out of debt.
Mr. Bates went on to say that the question
now was what shall we do with the surplus
revenue which will be rolled up in the next
two years? The expenses aud expenditures
of the State should be carefully estimated,
before anythiqg is done in the way of mak
ing appropriations, or in fact before auy
action is taken with reference to matters
affecting the finances of the State. Were it
not for the investments which the State
holds,—notably the $600,000 in J. <& B. and
B. & F. mortgages—he (Mr. Bates) would
be In favor of paying oil the debt as rapidly
as possible. But this generation has done a
great deal in the way of reducing the debt
of the State, (as much as it should), and
we are going on'to give to posterity, not
only a clean balance sheet but the
of railroad mortgages, as well.
Mr. Bates remarks were attentively
listened to and as no member had auy re
marks to make on the subject the resolution
was, by request, laid ou the table.
Inquiry was made as to what had become
of the estimate of probable receipts and ex
penditures which had been asked by resolu
tion of the House of the State Treasurer,
but nothing had been heard of them.

DOINGS IN TIIE HOUSE.
The passage of the bill to devote the pro
ceeds of the rotter estate to the free schools
of Kent county, lu the House yesterday,
telegraphed to the Gazette, took place
alter a lively debate. The bill was ably sup
ported by Dr. Watson and Dr. Lewes,.the
former making a lengthy and able argument
in favor of devoting the money received
from the land for educational purposes.
Under the will the money is to be devoted
to the "support, mafntaiuance and educa
tion of the poor of Kent county," and so
far, through mauy years,
lawyers have been able to get auy benefit
from the bequest. It was quite a victory
for Dr. Watson, who introduced the bill.

tion, within three years and be fenced on
both sides;) House amendment to the oyster
law (under a suspension of the rules. Thi6
bill prohibits non-residents from dredging
natural oyster rackß in the Delaware bay.)
Joseph Vaughan petitioned for the enact

tain vacant lands In Little Creek and Broad
kill hundreds, Sussex county, "at the head
of Polk's mill-pond," and George W. Whit
taker, to be transferred from District 79 to
72, Kent county.
The bill to ameud Chapter 60, Revised
ode, In relation to roads to equalize

LEVY COURT.
Yesterday Afternoon's Nesslon—Constables
Re-elected.
At the yesterday afternoon session of the
Levy Court the constables, bridge tenders
and others elected on Friday last were re
elected, the law requiring the re-election
of all these officers unless they are b nded
within five days after their appointment.
Only five having complied with this pro
vision the rest had to be re-elected. The
committee appointed to examine the ac
counts of the collectors of Appoauinlmink
hundred reported an error list of $76,349.43
for the year 1882. Mr. Mahaffy contended
that the list contained a number of errors
that should have been reported in 1881.
Messrs. Taylor and Roth well said that this
was caused by tbe death of the two collec
tors for that hundred soon after they had
and that the present collec
tor had not sufficient time to present his list
last March. The whole matter was finally
deferred, and court adjourned at 4.30 until
10 o'clock this morning.

Captain Nutt's Murderer Acquitted—A Dis
satisfied Community.
Uniontown, March 14.—It would not be
possible to describe the indignation that
reigns iu Uniontown at this moment. Nich
olas Lyman Dukes, member-elect of the
State Legislature, has just l>een declared by
12 Jurors tobe not guilty of the murder of
which public sentiment has convicted him.
The jury retired at 4.80o'clock in the alter
noou, after hearing from the Court
such a charge as seemed to reuder
acquittal Impossible. They were out about
three hours and a-lialf.
At nearly 8 o'clock Judge Wilson was
seen pussing hurriedly along the street
the direction of the court house
accompanied by » t'pstave. He was
soon followed by an exalted crowd, which,
hen the bell rant;, was swelled almost, to a
great rabble. When silence was partially
restored the jury filed in aud the frivolous
expression on some of their faces betokened
the nature ot their verdict. They niareherl
into their seats. Dukes entered the room
company with his counsel, his stepfather
and Sheriff Hoover. His face wore the
same stolid look that has marked his v
duet throughout the trial, lie arose, faced
the jury, and to the question of the clerk,
Foreman McIntyre answered, "Not guilty/'
The clerk had made a little error In pu t
tiug the question, and the foreman, seeming
haste to announce the verdict, uttered
the word "not" before he noticed the mis
take. He then paused till the clerk put
the corrected question, and then uttered the
words "Not guilty." The crowd in the
court room were so shocked that silence en
sued for a short time aud then an effort was
made to give some kiud oi expression to
their feelings, but they were, with difficulty,
restrained by the officers. Dukes sat down
with great composure.
Judge Wilson loolnd amazed at. the an
nouncement of the verdict. He said;
"Gentlemen of the jury: I suppose the
verdict that you have rendered is one that
you thought you should render under your
oaths, but it Is one that gives dissatisfaction
the Court, because we thought the evi
dence was sufficient to justify you iu render
lug a different verdict. If you have com
mitted au error, it is one that we cannot
avoid, but can only express our condemna
tion of it In this mild way. The prisoner is
discharged."
After the Judge's speech, and when the
crowd had scattered to the 6treet, the indig
nation grew terrific, aud an excited mob at
once started toward the Court House, where
Dukes was in charge of the Sheriff, earn ing
stuffed rfflgy of the late prisoner. They
also bore the jury In effigy, aud violence was
for a time expected. Dukes remained under
guard of Sheriff Hoover while the crowd
next proceeded to the McClelland House, a
few doors from the scene of murder. Here
they Joined ln ßlnglng "Hang Dukes'body
a sour apple tree."' It seemed as though
everyone in the town was on the street, and
one knew what an hour would bring
forth.
It is said a motion will be made in Court
the morning to expel Dukes from the bar
Fayette county. Miss Nutt was visited
a reporter this evening and it was found
that her grief was bearing heavily upon her.
The charges made by Dukes as to her condi
tion are utterly false. This fact makes the
charges all the more infamous.
During the night Üi,e following circular,
signed by prominent citizens, was posted
throughout the town : .

An Kdltor Degrades His Profession.
Braddock, Pa., March 14.—Yesterday
afternoon a rather unusual prize fight
occurred between two well-known residents
of this borough. Some time ago an article
appeared iu the Braddock Timen reflecting
somewhat upon the character of Josh
McCune, a blacksmith. McCuue called the
editor of the paper, Harry Elsenbeis, to ac
count for the publication, but it was found
Impossible to settle the controversy without
resort to a physical struggle. The*two men,
therefore, concluded to enter the squared
cirele. Fifteen rounds were fought and
both were severely punished. The princi
pals have found it uecessary to secrete them
selves, in order to be out of the reach of the
law. The mill was witnessed by a number
of those who delight in exhibitions of this
kind, and, laying aside personal preferences,
seemed to be a case of " let the best man
win." The best man in this case proved to
be the editor. Both were badly hurt.
Weather Promised To-Day.
A centre of disturbance moved eastward
over the lake regions and British provinces

Registrar glanced over it, aud said he was to

then until between 2 pnd 3 o'clock. The
witness had also another paper which he had
handed to the Registrar, and he "thinks it
was a bill of $10 for reporting the
hand."
James Stewart, a lad, janitor of the Board
of Health office, stated that he had
gone to Dr. Snitcher to have a blank
properly filled out, when the Doctor de
clared, "by the eternal heaveus I will not.

Dr. Snithher then explained that his
blanks would always get mislaid or lost aud
that he did not suppose the notices should
be on any particular paper to make them
legal. "In rçgard to the man coming to
my office,"! he continued, "Squire Frazer
had taken the occasion to write me an im
pudent note, sayiog that he would have me
before the Mayor." The doctor declared
that he waft too busy to fill out the blanks.
Secretary Frazer stated, in reply to a
question from the Mayor, that he had re
ceived about 90 blanks properly filled in by
other physicians, and that the Mayor him
self, as a physician, had frequently, late at
night, reported cases aud took hall an hour
so as to be careful and have the required re
port propei'ly filled out. All the physicians,
with the exception of Snitcher, hail
fully complied with the law.
Mr. llon'ecker, in addressing the Mayor,
thought that the whole animus of the
matter, so far as he was able to discern, was
not so much that the law had beeu disobeyed
as it was that Dr. Snitcher had offended the
dignity of Squire Frazer, and had refused to
respond to the mandates ofthat gentleman.
He thought the Doctor had complied with
the law. There was no law in regard to
r gulattog the health of the city, in which it
was shown that Dr. Snitcher
any physician had to
Squire Frazer. The
done all he could iu cases which he had
reported, lie did not think it would have
been right to have filled up the blanks by
guessworlk just because the law said they
were to be filled. It would not be right to
falsely make statements. There was, he
thought, Only one case, of those complained
of, not fully explained, and that was wheu
the points needed could not be bad.
The law does not require printed
blanks, and there was no prooi
that the Doctor had not reported his
ses within 18 hours. A report of the
Christiana street case was made oefore the
warrant \^as served. Whether or not the
doctor's report suited the dignity of 'Squire
Frazer had nothing to do with the matter.
In the Judgment of the speaker there bad
been no violation. He could understand
why a physician, in active practice, would
not want to carry a lot of blanks around

The Mayor remarked tbit Dr. Snitcher

himself, icmarkcd that he
