Delaware is as good another, but not auy
better, only equal. A convention is to be
held at Dover on Monday, September 10th,
1883, and 30 delegates are to be chosen from
each county. What will the Republican
growlers have to say about this matter ?
According to their teachings New Castle
county should have 60 delegates, as many as
both of the other eounties. The colored
people
sense In not making any discrimination be
cause one county has more money, or land,
more Inhabitants than another. The

—Council Business.
City Council In regular session last even

the following business:
The Street Committee, on the petition of
Patrick Hughes, asking that the south side
of Van Buren street from Fourth to Sixth
street, curbed, guttered and paved, reported

On the petition of W. T. Massey and
many others, residing or doing husiuess on
Front street, asking that Council abate a
nuisance existing on Front street from
Market to Union, reported in favor order
ing the nuisance abated.
Mr. Pickels desired to know what the
nuisance complained of consisted of, and
asked for the reading of the grievance.
The petltlou was then read aud set forth
that the Front street railway had filled in
between their tracks with gravel which be
comes ground into dust and ruins not only
furniture but articles for sale.
Mr. Baugh sa'd that the matter was a
great nuisance and he would like to know
how the committee were going to have it
abated. Unless some means were specified it
would not be abated until snow fell.
Mr. Eastburn replied that the committee
thought it would be best to leave the mat
ter to the company.
Mr. Blake thought that the best way to
get rid of the matter was to order the
pany to pave between the tracks,
the signers to the petition was Mr. F. N.
Buck, one of the directors of the road.
Mr. Pickel's moved to ameud the report
of the committee to the effect that the com

The same committee, on the petition of E.
J. McManus, asking for curb aud guttering
on the south side of Fourth street from
Broome to Union street, reported in favor of
notifying the owners to do the work at their
own expense under the supervision of the
Street Commissioner.
The same committee, on the proposals for
gutter plates read at îast meeting, asked au
thority to advertise for new proposals as the
former ones were equal iu amount. The re

The City Auditor reported that H. R.
Penington, Esq., Clerk of the Municipal
Court had paid $113.70 into the City

A report, giving a detailed statement of

following from the Auditor was read:
"I have the honor to report haviug ex

A communication and several drawings
from the Chief Engineer of the Surveying
Department in reference to Shipley Run

street, was presented and referred to the
Street Committee.
The chair announced that the ordinances
fixing the «alary of the Harbor Master and
for the relief of 8. G. Sim mous & Bro., had
beeu approved by the Mayor, and were
therefore ordinances of the city.
The chair also announced that the ordi
nance granting permission to the P., W. &
B. R. R Co., to use the. north side of Third
street between Pine aud Spruce street had
been returned by the Mayor unsigned, but
inasmuch as it had not been vetoed within
the pi escribed time, it had become a law.
Mr. Eastburn presented a very lengthy
ordinance in reference io water courses in
the city. After several sections had been
read, on motion of Mr. Pickels, further
reading was dispensed with and the Print
ing Committee were authorized to have one
hundred copies printed.
Mr. Eastburn presented a resolution

thought It was oniv wasting time, as Coun
kn<*w what the commun lea! Ion was.
After Mr. Baugh'* request had beeu com
plied with the gentleman stated that he did
n<>t think the resolutions as read
by the clerk were a verbatim
copy of those presented oy the Solicitor and
adopted by Council. He contended that the
Law Committee had not done their duty.
The majority of the committee had not con
sulted with the minority at all, and they
also had not complied with the resolutions,
as no opinion bad been received. He would
like to know something about the matter,
and he would move that the Law Commit
tee be instruct d to report the opinion of
Council at the next meeting ot Council.
Mr. Pickels moved to lay the motion on
the table. #
Mi. Blake called for the ayes and nays.
Mr. Farrell said he was very sorry that the
gentleman had made the motion.
Mr. Picke)6 raised the point of order that
the gentleman was out of order, as the ayes
and nays had been called.
Mr. Farrei, c

Mr. Pickels again objected, and the chair
ruled Mr Farrell out of order.
The calls of the ayes and nays was then
proceeded with, and wh«n Mr. Farrel'e
name was called, he arose and said he de
sired to explain bis vote. He said 1; ap
peared to him that the gent irom the Fifth
ward and his colleagues did not want any
light on the subject. He thought a« Coun
cil was paying for an opinion the whole body
had a right to know what that opinion was.
It should not t>e known only to a select few.
He voted no.
Mr. Taylor also arose to explain bis vote.
He was of the same opinion as Mr. Farrell,
aDd the Republican side of the house were
afraid to let the opinion be known.
Mr. Pickels —"Mr. President, I object. If
you are going to allow the matter to be dis
cussed I want a chance to reply."
Mr. Taylor turning uround to Mr. Pick
els, said somewhat angrily: "You are afraid
to discuss the matter."
Mr. Pickels —"I am ready at any time."
Mr. Taylor—"You are afraid, or else you
would never have moved to lay the motion
on the table and cut of! discussion."
The motion to lay on the table was
adopted by a vote of 10 ayes to 8 nays.
Mr. Baugh, not being satisfied, said he
would ask the Law Committee what they
had done in the matter.
Mr. Pickels again interrupted, saying the
matter had just been disposed of.
Mr. 8mith, chairman of the Law Com
mittee, arose to reply, but was interrupted
by Mr. Pickels, who said counsel had been
employed.
Mr. Baugh, "I would ask If Mr. Pickels
Is running this Council ! The gentleman
from the Ninth ward knows all about the
matter, let him answer." The only answer
that Mr. Smith vouchsafed was: "You will
hear in due time." Adjourned.

London, August 30.—A dispatch to
Lloyds', from Batavia, estimates the loss of
life by the volcanic eruptions at 60,000. The
Jisgeter Is ths most terrible, and devastating
of modern times. For 48 hours the shocks
of earthquake have increased In violence.
Streams of burning lava poured down into
the valleys, inundating villages and carrying
death and flames to the most popul. us
places. In the Straits of Sunda, the
most Important zhannel of naviga
tion between the Sea of Java and
the Indian Oceans, islands have been swal
lowed up, the coast llucchanged orenterely
obliterated, and every lighthouse haa been
swept away Tills important strait, 60
miles in width, is uow dangerous to naviga
tion. New islands have arisen and land
marks on the coast are so altered as to
make the country unrecognizable. The Gov
ernment is preparing to obtain new sound*
ings of the strait.
Sixteen volcanoes have appeared between
the site where the Island of Krakaloa
formerly stood and Slbisic '«land. A part
of the Bau tarn Is an ashy desert. The cattle
are starving, and the population are In
despair. The Soengepan volcano was for
many hours enveloped In an enormous
luminous cloui, which gradually In
creased in size until it formed a
canopy of lurid red aud whitish
gray over a wide extent of territory.
During this time the eruptions increased,
and streams of lava poured Incessantly down
the sides of the mountains, sweeping every
thing before them. Where a stream of lava
entered an arm of the sea or came in con
tact with the water of a river, the incades
cent lava produced boiling heat and rapid
vaporization. The fissures that opened in
this thin crust as It solidified on the stream
of lava emitted torrents of vapor, extern ing
high into the air, and making a tremendous
seething sound.
The air was filled with dense black smoke
and rolling clouds of flame, which seemed
to envelope aud agitate the earth with tor
rents of burning lava rushing into the sea.
The roar of the flames and hissing of the
water became almost deafening. The re
turning waves rushed upon the shore to an
unprecedented height.
Between the Southwestern point of the
island and Gunnug Guntur several villages
disappeared from sight during the second
night of the eruption. The number of dead
can scarcely be estimated. Seven hundred
and four bodies of victims of the disaster
have been buried in the district of Tamara,
and three hundred bodies in the coast vil
lage oi Kramat alone, aud in other and
more populous districts torrents of lava
have buried whole settlements.

Before starting
fishing expedition the wise sportsman will

The seven bandied peo le who assembled
at Quickstep Park yesterday afternoon, to
to witness the Quickstep-Ac five name, were
delighted wkh the finest exhibition of
genuine, hard batting ever seen In this city.
Benners led off with six clean hit«, with *
total of eight, Kelnzel following with five,
with a total of seven, while all the others
were close behind. Snyder, although he
he did not get around the bases, made four
clean hits, while Albert covered himself with
glory by hitting for a home run
when the bases were full. Hoover
«Iso hit hard and fielded splendidly, and
Benners redeemed himself with four put
outs and one assist, in addition to his heavy
batting. Each Quickstep player got at
least one clean hit. The vis,tors played
fairly, considering the fact that they played
against a lead of 13 runs in the first Inning
Friel, their pitcher, after the good record he
made In Brooklyn, was fairly appalled at
the freedom with which the Quicksteps
batted his delivery. The score In detail L>

The Chi« ago Union Base Ball Association
has released all its players, and will not
have a nine in the field during the remain
der of the season. The association is sound
financially, but it has determined to devote
the remainder of the season to securing a
first-class club for next year, when it ex
pects to belong to the American Associa
tion.
A movement is on foot to organize an in^
dependent base ball association, and forthat
E urpoee representatives from Chicago, St.
ouis, Indianapolis, Fittsburg, Nçw York,
Philadelphia, Brooklyn and Hartford will
meet on October 12, in Pittsburg. It is the
intention of the new organization to ignore
the "eleven men rule" now in vogue in the
League and the American Association, and
to make a number of alterations in the play
