Something for Wilmington 's Philanthropic Something for Wilmington 's Philanthropic Citizens to Ponder Over. To the Editor of the Gazette: Sir — Our people need a hospital for contagious diseases, more particularly small-pox pa tients. We cannot hope to be rid of small pox lor any great length of time; we are too the cities of Philadelphia and Balti more. The weekly reports show that small pox exists in the hospitals of said cities all t! e time. Mechanics and laborers are con tinually coming and going Irom our city. These people come from all parts of the United States and foreign countries. I think it is clear to any and all persons who will give this subject of traveling from placée to place a careful investigation, that we are likely to have the small-pox brought to our city any day by this roving set of people. Now the question Is, how a hospital erected ? I believe most of our tax-payers say, "Hold, enough; . no more increase of the bonded debt of our city." This being the feeling our city legislators step* toward erecting such a building; what are we to do? Fold our hands, remain silent in regard to this im portant matter and allow the reputation of our city to become a by-word, and first class working men shun us because we make provision for them in case of emergency ? Can we have a building without the aid of our city legislators ? Undoubtedly we can. The large manufacturing establishments In our city owe it to the poor workingmen to provide such a place for their comfort wheu stricken down by this dreadful disease. I believe that If a committee of our wealthy men could raise, say $25,000 in one week, which would be ample to erect such a building as The expense of maintain ing the hospital could be borne by the city. If some great conflagration or some deadly disease were to visit, any of our towns in this State aud the people were ren dered homeless, with death aud starvation staring them In the face, I ask how long people to raise $25,000 or more, to relieve their wants aud save them from death ? It would be done at once. Our people, when aroused, are generous toward suffering human!ly. What we want at. this time Is some one or more of our in fluential men to take this matter in hand and agitate it as a measure of the greatest Importance to all of our citizens, and do it Delays are dangerous. By le in we to get such will take ol ot of to of (• 11 would take this matter in hand, they we want now. ch would it take of at at once. malning silent, and giving this subject thought, and allowing things to move along in the old ruts, may cost the business men of this city $500,000 besides many lives. Now, what will cause this loss ? I answer fifty cases of small-pox in our city will do it. Fifty cases at one time may cause five hundred cases to exist before the disease could be controlled. With a hospital pro perly managed, thedisease can be kept under control, and our city saved the humiliation of becoming a pest house. New Castle county can build a Court House, Alms house, numerous expensive bridges and the like, but our city will do nothing in this matter. In other cities the people keep ahead of the^county. They make the im provements and do all things necessary to cause the people to keep pace with this pro gressive age. Who will agitate ibis subject at once ? E. B. Frazer.

As soon as possible the returning Knights were placed in cabs and accompanied to the Temple where the reception took place, Hon Charles B. Lore made the address ol welcome afty escorted to tne banqueting room where an elegant supper had been prepared. Notwithstanding the short notice which was given the commandery, as to the time the delegation would arrive, the arrange ments for the receptloD were complete in every particular. To avoid any possible misunderstanding a committee of the com mandery went to Philadelphia Saturday afternoon and met the excursionists and eucceeded in having the car held in Philx. delphia until the 6.30 o'clock accommoda tion trail., otherwise they would have ar rived In this city at 6.57 o'clock, which would, of course, have made it necessary to dispense with the reception, as the notices to the members of the commandery called upon them to be at the Temple in lull uni form at 7 o'clock. Messrs.

At 9 o'clock this morning he was given a hearing before 'Squire O'Neill and held in the sum of $300 for his appearance at court. When asked by the 'Squire if he had anything to say the prisoner excused his act by saying that "the coat fell off the form and I picked it up «and put it on." At the same session Alfred Johnson for as saulting Harry T. Deary, was fined $5 and his costs and held in the sum of $200 to keep the peace. Six cases of druukeuuess were also disposed of.
