WHAT COS S TIT UTJiS A DEL A
WARE AS.
Every Evening is again greatly exercised
at a criticism of the Hebald relative to
Senator Bayard'* hobby of "Honest
Senator Bayard in substance has
>'
Money.
again and again said that the duty of the
Democracy, measurably, at present its sole
duty was to give the country a hard money
currency. This the Senator cannot deny
and we are quite sure he feels the rectitude
of his own position too forcibly to deny it.
If so, did we misquote or slander him ! Is
Mr. Bayard Infallible and above criticism 1
There is an illiberal and intolerant tone in
the article relative to the proprietors of the
Hbbald, which demands notice. Is there
unwritten naturalization law in the
State, which perpetually excludes from full
citizenship a foreign born citizen, or the na
tive of another State ? The owners of the
Hcbald bave been residents here for over
nine years, have come of age in this State,
cast their first votes in It, and expect te re
main. *
an
It would seem that notwithstanding all
this, that according to the ethics of Sena*
tor Bayard's Clayton Honae speech, and of
Every Evening'* opinion, cltUeni ol the
Stats mast obtain some social assollment
before they are considered Delawareans If
they have been born beyond Its borders .o It
Is rather a Rood joke to hear Every Even
lng descrying slander, a journal that has
long since been voted to be the conduit of
slander In this city.

torney to act for me and In my stead to

POLICE MATTERS.
The main question agitating the people
to»day In tbe matter of city legislation Is
the requested Increase of tbe police force
One thing that la sure to Impress a stranger
coming from any Important town in the
country Is the smallness of our force In
comparison with other*. Savannah, for
Instance, which Is somewhat smaller than
Wilmington, baa a police fores of one hun*
dred men. Eighty-flve ol these are patrol
men, and fifteen are always wanted while
on duty.
PROF. MURDOCH'S READINGS.
Prof. Murdoch, teacher of elocution at
Rugby Academy, and well-known through,
out the country is an experienced and great
elocutionist, gave some select readings last
evening in the new lecture room of the Ma
sonic Temple, before a large and apprecia
tive audience. Among the seieetiona ren
dered by Professor Murdoch, were a scene
from Shakespeare's Macbcth.the Vagabond
and many other choice readings. The
audience were highly delighted with his
efforts. He is no doubt a fluent speaker,
and a fine elocutionist.
MOVED IN.
Alf OVATION.
Sheriff Pyle took possession of the sheriff's
house in New Castle yesterday. He was
escorted to his new home by a large delega
tion of his neighbors of both sexes. This
demonstration »f respect and esteem by bis
life-long friends and intimate companions,
must bave beta highly gratifying to tbe
new sheriff and was a compliment which
he doubtless deserved. We predict that
Sheriff' Pyle will not lose any friends by his
important office.
M. B. R. A. TO-NIGHT.
H. W. Morrow presides at the Moral
Suasion public meeting to-night, and the
speakers will all be new ones. Rev. J

chant on Market street, paid a flying visit
to town yesterday from New York where
he now resides, Mr. Solomon is quite
prosperous and is engaged in the Broker
business. He will leave lur his home to

There is some probability that Col. Robt.

The City CoudcU held a regular meeting
last night with Mr. Guthrie In the chair.
The Street Committee reported favorably
on the petition of John Cummings, asking ,
to have the gutters on Lamotte street from
20th to 22d street. Adopted.
The Water Committee reported adversely
on the petition of Mr. Meyers, asking the
payment of $20 damages done to a horse
caused by the animal falling over rubbish
in tbs street. The report was made on the
grounds that the city employees were nob
to blame as the obatructlon was placed by
private parties,
Mr. McGllncbey took a position opposed
to the report, saying that even were th«
street obstructed, It was the duty of the
*lty to keep the streets open, and hence the
city was responsible, and were tbe city not
to pay tbe bill, a suit would grow out of it.
Mr. Paynter said that the private parties
wbo did tbe work for tbe benefit for private
property were the ones to whom Mr. Meyer
was to look.
Mr. McGllncbey—The petitioner came to
the proper place. The city is responsible
lor this and then it should hold the man
causing tbe obstruction responsible.
The report was then adopted.
Tbe Public Building Committee reported
favorably on the petition of D B. Jones,
asking the use of two old muskets to be
used in the American Rifles. Adopted.
The Lamp committee reported adversely
on the petition of Isaac Holt, complaining
that the lamp at Twelfth and West streets
was obstructed. Adopted.
The Law Committee presented the follow
ing from the City Solicitor upon the resolu
tion Irom Mr. McGllncbey, asking If It was
possible to reduce the number of surveyors :
November 11, 1878.
R. H. Taylor, Esq., Chairman of the
Law Committee:
Dear Sir In obedience to a resolution
ef the City Council asking my opinion
whether or not the City Couucil have tbe
authority to reduce the number of survey
ors, I would state that as Sec. 47 of the
City Charter Axes the number of surveyora
and regulates at "three or more," the
City Council cannot reduce the number
below three.
8. A. Macallister,
City Solicitor.
Mr. McGlinchey said that while this was
before the Council, he desired to make an
explanation. He had no Intention to make
a political point and did It with an Idea at
retrenchment,
Mr. Chandler arose and said that the
matter ot reducing the number of surveyors
was certainly unwise, and any person who
paid any attention to that department eould
see that the present number ol surveyors
employed was almost inadeqnate.
Mr. McGlinchey called Mr. Chandler to
order and said he was not speaking to the
question.
Mr, Chandler took hla seat and several
members support*d him In bis statement.
The Street Commissioner submitted a re
port In answer to Mr. McGP.nchey's resolu
tion adopted at a previous meeting, asking
for information concerning a ditch dug on
the east side of Christiana avenue during
the past summer. The report stated that
the whole number of men employed wap
25, and tbe total amouBt expended was
<289 71. The report also showed that the
work was done on the order of P. Chamllev
wbo at that time was chairman of the Open
log Street Committee.
On motion of Mr. McGlinchey tiro report
was accepted.
Mr. Townsend presented a petition from
Charles Cannon asking to have a lamp at
Claymont and Lobdell streets, and also t
petition from John M. Dunn, asking to hav<
water tax on a house of James Quinn, de
ceased, on Lobdell street.

larly from their semi-annual appropriation
until the amount was paid.
Mr Maxwell gave notice that at the ne>
meeting of Council he would offer an ord,
fiance providing lor the re-organizat on r f
tbe police force and the re-districting of the
city.
Mr. Taylor called up for a third readitg
the ordinance providing for an addition , t
and extraordinary appropriation of $5,000
for the payment of in'erest, and $3,000 lor

adopted by a unanimous vote.
