The conduct of sonn ot the "models" is more befitting that ol the inhabitants of Patagonia. This morniut* fids evil custom readied a crisis. Moore, of the "model«," had two men arrested for vagrancy. The same about a week ago and Judge Cummins dis mi se«l the charge of vagrancy aud fined them $1 and cost« for disorderly conduct; and Chief Hawkins made return that they had served out the sentence.

Moore, still in oient, denied again that they had been fined and Clerk Peulngton said that tlie records would show that they had been. Moore, ever ready, re lied to the Clerk aud said, Insolently, My word is as good as yours.

The Quickstep Defeated for tlie Fifth Suc cessive T me by the Trenton eating Column of Base Ball Newa. An later The Quickstep, yesterday, for the fifth time fell a victim to the up Jersey club. The home team seemed to bave no life about them and played the game throughout in a haug-dog fashion. Something is radically wrong with the club, and until it is set straight victories will be the exception. '1 he club contains as good material as there is in the Inter State, and there is no excuse for the baby games that are frequently played. If this thing is kept up it Is safe to say liiere will he the end of the seasou. Wilmington is a base ball town and will support a club that ßhows any disposition to play good ball but "monkey work" will not be tolerated. The game yesterday was dull and uninter esting with no especial features to mark ft. The visitors both outbatted and out tlelded the home «team, they being credited wttk but one fielding error, Harkins' three errors being for bases ou liai Is. Py e was overworked aud his pitch ing was not as effective as usual, as will be seen by the score. Kienzel, late of the Mer ritt«, signed with the club yesterday aud made his appearance in centre field and caught three tiice flies. 8mllcy knocked his Huger out in the sixth lnulug and was com pelled to retire, Campana of Brooklyn tak ing his place.

About 4.80 o'clock yesterday afternoon, James O'Donnell, a young lad aged about 12 years, suddeuly met his death by drown lng the Brandywine. The deceased had down to the gate of the Jackson & Sharp Company's works for the purpose of obtain ing a drink of water. After obtain!• g it, he ran down to the railroad bridge, and as sisted the flagman, William H. Collision, to pull down a signal.* He was warned by Mr. Collision to be careful < r bp might fall over board. Hardly had the warning been uttered, when the unfortunate lad stepped backward and below. to swim, procured a pole as quickly us pos sible, and endeavored to reach it to the lad but It was too short. In a few moments after he fell he sank to rise no more alive. The alarm was quickly spread, and la response to the cry that a boy had bfeeu drowned at the railroad bridge, 8herman Biddle, who was sitting at Seventh and Benuett streets, hastened to the scene, and after partially disioblng, leaped overboard, and after a short search succeeded in finding the body and with assistance got It on the bridge. The remains were fchcu taken to 708 Curlett street, where the boy's parents reside. The boy was the oldest of four children, who came with their rao her from Ireland about two months ago. The father works for the Pusey «te Jones Company. This morning Deputy Coroner Palmer inquest and, alter bearing the evi Amt that out of this of was and the ern in to the the for It by in gone fell into the water Mr. Co'.tl8lon being unable held dence of Messrs. Collison and Biddle, whose testimony did not differ materially from the facts as stated above, the jury rendered a verdict of accidental drowning. TUE WATER ASSESSMENT. Suspicions of Political Work Being Done at tlie Publie Expense. When the Water Department pay roll was presented at the meeting of City Council last evening, Mr. Taylor called for the read ing of the names thereon. The «. lerk pro ceeded to read them, but when the names of Cornelius Fipps aud Thomas M. Culbert, who are assessment, passed, Mr. Taylor withdrew his request. He subsequently asked Mr. Steveçson, chairman of the Water Committee, what the duties of these extra assessors were. Mr. Stevenson said they were employed to make a new aud comp'ete water assess ment. Mr. Taylor—Are they not taking a census of the male inhabitant of the city, and their political views. Mr. Farrell—They are discovering leaks, perhaps. Mr. Stevenson—They are looking for peo ple who do not pay for the water they use, and they are finding a great many. Subsequently Mr. Farrell called attention to the great quantity of water wæted in this city, and ou his motion the assessors were instructed to report to the "proper party,'' ail waste and leakage that came to their attention. Mr. Farrell thought the "proper person'' would be "the person called Chief Engineer of the Water Depart ment." The reason Mr.Taylor started this inquiry into the duties of these extra aesi^sors is that there is a well credited rumor that they are combining with their work a careful political canvass for the benefit of the Re publican paity of the city. AN INJUNCTION VACATED. gaged in making a new water , at $2.75 per day each, were ol Judge Bradford Rules That the Restrainer Is not Complete Without the Signatures of the Plalatlffb. A case awakening much interest has been argued before Judge Bradford in the United States District Court lor the past three days. The counsel for various lumber firms asked for and obtained an older to compel John R. Meyers of Dover to tile an account and re. train him from disposing of his property, also to have a receiver appointed. It was claimed that as the bill had not been signed the order should be vacated. The defendant by his course had the order vacated and the plain tiff sought to have it reinstated. A hearing of the case was appointed for yesterday morning. Edward Ridgely, Esq., appeared for Henry C. Spaulding, of New York; C. H. B. Day, Esq., for the Michigan Dumber Company the Sawyer, Goodman Company, and Stephens, Wise «& Company of Illinois; Junes Pennewill, Esq., for Wagner «te Follmer of Michigan: Richard R. Kenney, Esq., lor John B. Fiinery & Company of Williamsport W. J. Lauigan «te Company and F. A. Slack «te Company ot Philadelphia; J. Alexander Fulton, Esq., for the Watson town Planing Mill Company) Hopklus, Weymouth & Byers, Hopkins At Irvin and Judies Huey of Peuueylvauia. Messrs. Massey, Walcott aud Bradford appeared for the defendant. After argument the Court ruled that the bill was not sufficient without the signature ot the plaintifis, or of oue ot them, but that the bill might be withdrawn for the signa ture. the Kclieutzen Park.
