Mr. Mackey moved that Delaware College
be allowed $50 for the expense involved in
the analyzing of phosphates. The motion
was objected to by Messrs. Feblger and Sil
ver, who argued that the college had not
been placed at any expense, as the chemist
making the analysis was supposed to pur
chase all chemicals needed. They were also
of Hie opinion that it any aid was given it
should be done by the State aud uot by the
county. After a few remarks by other
members upon the motion it was withdrawn
and the court adjourned until August 21.

About midnight last night a gentleman

A False Report of a Terrible# Accident to

Chicago, July 31.—Much excitement was
caused in this city to-day by a special dis-
patch from Leadville, Col., saying: "A tel-
egram just received says that the excursion
train bearing the Graud )rmy excursionists
off a trestlework last night in Black
Canyon, near the Grand river, aud that 140
out of 170 of the
or wounded." The dispatch was published
in a Tribune extra aud was neither con-
firmed nor denied for many hours. Nu-
merous dispatches were filed asking
for particulars, but the telegraph blockade»
in the southwest prevented replies from
being received until late in the day. This
evening a dispatch was received from the
head uarters of the Denver & Rio Grande
Railroad Company, Denver, Col., saying:
"The report that a Grand Array of the Re
public excursion train had been wrecked
and many lives loet is absolutely without
foundation. Nothing has occured to mar\
the pleasures of the excursionists."

The report was heard in this clfy, last
night and for awhile caused much uneasi

Early yesterday morning a fight occurred
between two men employed ou board the
dredging machine Commodore, lying in the
river, two miles below New Castle, iu which
one man received lujuries .that may prove
fatal. George Christopher, the mate, and
George Smith, one of the hands, had a dis
pute, in which the mate struck at Smith
with a heavy chisel. Captain R. H. Pierson
parted the two men, and Christopher threw
the chisel on the deck. It was at once
picke«! up by Richard Spittal, a companion
of 8mith, who struck Christopher a tenibie
blow on the head, which felled him. The
mate's skull was cut open until hie brain
protruded, and the probabilities are that he
will die. He was taken to the Pennsylvania
Hospital in an unconscious com dl tien, and
Mpittal, who was given a hearing before
Mi.yor Black, ot New Castle, was com
