As might have been expected, from a head over heels manner of transacting business, the Trustees of the poor have got themselves into a snarl which causes not only considerable bad feel ing amongst the members but besides promises trouble ahead. The great need of an enlargement of the county Insane department has been apparent for many years and has led to many discussions pro and con upon the pro priety of enlargement. Two strong ar guments prevailed against the com mencement of active operations until the present time, and those two were the stringency of the times and the InadequatenesB of the location. The times having become good one difficulty has been removed and as the 6equel will show money was only too easy to he had at six per cent with which to gjarry on the contemplated work. From <our local columns elsewhere it will be seen that $2000 of the $5000 needed has for some time past been negotiated for by tbe wide awake Treasurer of the Board at six per cent which could as 'Allaged by other members of the Board been procured at five par cent or even four and a half had tbe plan adopted by the Levy Court of the County and ihe City Council of Wilmington been followed. This apparent over prompt ofllciouaness of the Treasurer is what causes no little difference iu this lit tle Democratic family that sits with dosed doors and wines and dines iwdnthly at the expense of the county. From what little has leakedj out it aj pears that the Board has for a year or ao been paying this high rate of inter eat for two thousand dollars lying dead iu the Treasury, laid .money hiving been borrowed by the Treasurer without the knowledge of, we can't say all the members of the Board, but at least without the knowl edge of some of them. As might have been expeoted this has been resented *>y those not in the secret of this little inaneial transaction, and hence the question arises, "Why might not this ..interest money have been saved and hare been given tothepoor?" Weare rather inclined to think that those making this inquiry have the strong end of the argument, and will have the approbation of the public. Bat this is not all the financial difficulty which stares the trustees, in the face right at the commencement of the templated enlargement of the County buildings. The question arises, has the Board any right to borrow money at all without a special act of the Leg islature ? We all know that the City Conncil ol Wilmington possessing plen ary powers to doaimosteverything else, has no power to increase the City debt without a special act of the Legislature and we also know that the Levy Court of New Castle County could not even enlarge the old or build a new conrt house without a special legisla tive enaotment. How much less power then must the Board of Trustees of the Poor which is only a oreature of the Levy Court have to contract, a debt without the authority of the Legisla ture ? These are questions which have entered into the discussions of tire Board of Trustees of the Poor, and which have caused a considerable divergence of opinion. Even the closed doors w hich shuts the Board in from the inquisitive prying curiosty of the outside world have led to the ideathat, something must ha' e been going on behind those duots that it is desirable to withhold from the taxpayers of the county. There seen s to be a prospect now that hidden things ahall be brought to the light, and are amongst those who believe that nothing would be lost byjthe taxpayers being more minutely informed of what transpires in relation to the keeping of the poor and the insane of the county. Now a word in regard to the locality of the Conuty Alms House. Soon after the war closed it was argued with such great force that the bnildings were so near the city proper of Wilmington, that the Levy Court purchased a farm in the vicinity of Hare's Corner, with the expectation at some time not in the far future of building a new Alms House, hospital aud a bnilding for the insane of the county. The farm was purchased at a time when real estate was high, and for a fee- years it was leased to farmers, but the rents reoeiv «d did not pay the interest of the pur - vre chase money and the expenses attend ant npom keeping the farm in order. In a few years real estate decreased abont one third in value, when the farm was sold at a loss to the eounty of we think gotng $7,000. Since this unfortunate financial transaction the Trustees have not been embarking very largely In the real estate business, except to sell a few building lots from the old property in this city. The question, however, here arises, are theie not the same and even stronger arguments now for the removal of the County Alms House building be yond the limits of the city than there were twelve or fifteen years ago f The fast increasing population of the city hae carried improvements westward far beyond the Alms House, and though a necessary institution, there can be no doubt that it is a complete barrier to the improvements that would spring up in that locality if there were no Alms House there. If there were good reasons for the removal of the buildings years ago those reasons are donbly stroug now. Were these buildings removed, we be lieve that in a few years Broome street would be built up with palatial resi dences, but nobody wants to locate near an Alms Hoase and small-pox Hospital. Tnore are about twenty acres belonging to the property, so handsomely aud ele gantly located that they could be sold for more money than would purchase a hundred acre farm a couple of miles far ther out. and erect suitable and commo dious buildings upon it,and if located on ope of the lines of railway leading from the city it would be more easy of access than the present location. The spend ing of five thousand dollars in the en largemeut of the present buildings, would be that much money thrown away. It would it is true afford a pres sent temporary relief to the oyer orowd ed condition of the Insane depart ment but it would not add a dollar more to the value of the property. The pressure of the population in that di rection will necessitate the removal of the bui'.diDgs in a very few years at the farthest, and when that time comes the- land upon which the buildings stand may bring a good price but the buildings themselves whether new or old will be of no more value than that much old brick and rubbish. We are confident the people of this city at least are not ia favor of this proposed expen diture of money even if the Trustees oonld expend it without a special act of the Legislature. Let the people be heard from in this matter, aud if they approve of the project of enlarging the buildings at the present location then the Board oan go ahead knowing that they have the approval of the public, but until this is done let the Board of Trustees of the Poor of New Castle County call a halt. In urging upon citizens their duty to get aesesaed we have never made any distinction of party, bnt to keep from being misnnderatood on this question we would distinctly state that we mean all una»sessed persons whether Demo crat or Republican. The fact that some five hundred Democrats voted at the city election last fall upon bogus tax receipts, without having been as sessed and without the payment of a cent of tax has induced us to urge these same Democrats to get assessed, pay their taxes like honest men and then cast an honest vote. We are sure they will be much better satisfied by vot ing legally than illegally, aud besides there is danger of getting tripped up and taken before the counts for trial for illegal voting. If all the Democrats in the city were to get assessed the Democratic vote could not possibly be increased as tbey all voted or else somebody voted for them, bnt the Lon eBt way is the best way and therefore we say to all Democrats, go and get as sessed. Harry S. Brown formerly bo efficient on the "Gazette" of thia city has sever ed his connection with that paper and has accepted a position on the staff of the Republican. Mr. Brown is a quick energetic reporter, and will use every effort to make the Republican the lead ing local newspaper of the c ity for the future as it has been in the past. Our readers are authorized to recognize Mr. Brown as a reporter of the Republican aud are. requested to exteud to him the same courtesies and facilities! to aid him in his work, as haa usually been exteu ded to all our reporters. As it now stands, if the ehetion lor President were thrown into the House the Democrats would have uineteei) States and the Republicans the saru* number, under wl ich circumstance of coarse no party could elect a President. Should Mr. Washburn, of Minnesota, be ousted and Djnnelly be admitted, then tbe Demccrata would have twenty States and the Republicans eighteen. This explains the anxiety to unseat Washburn. Tiuiex's nephew, Pslton, did all the naughty bad things with which Tilden was accused at the last Presidential election,bnt it was not Bayard's nephew that made that speech at Dover in 1801. Now THAT THE "Gazette" has come oat fqaarely in favor of negro suffrage, provided the negroes vote the Demo cratic ticket, we suppose there will be no trouble hereafter in getting oolored people assessed. W* 8i»cEB*i.t pity Mr. Smith, of 8»n Francisco, if Mrs. Smith is a fair typo of the lovely gentle women of that oity. When the Kearney faction held a meet ing on Wednesday to determine on some plan of removing the dwellings in the Chinese quarter, Mrs. Smith suggested that a good way to get rid of the nuisance would he to blow it up with dynamite. Samcbl Townsend should immediately look after the " Uaiette, '' or he will wake up and And no organ for his white man's party. This is very urgent Mr. Townsend. An Editorial on the ••flop-over'* of the "Gazette," written for today's paper was crowded over until to morrow.
