THE FIGHT TO-MORROW. They Are Tearing Each Other In Kent. Republicans Take a Hand By Ijetter to Evening Journal. Dovku, Del., August 34.—To-morrow will end one of the hottest preliminary political campaigns that Kent county has ever known. Factionalism was rife two years ago, but that tight was the bluest kind of skim milk when compared with the one that is being waged now. In its closest contests with a well-trained Re publican adversary, the Democracy of Kent never fought as it is lighting now in its own household. The lowest depths of political trickery are not too fur down to he used, and the crookedest ward workers of the largo cities might come down here now and get points in Simon pure crook edness. Night and day have the leaders and their lieutenants been in the saddle for the past two weeks, and if there is a voter anywhere in the county who has not been ''seen" he must lie under ground. The Saulsburys are determined not to lose, their prestige and the rest are fighting as men do who see their last chance. ites go under this time they are gone for ever," remarked a prominent Republhan last night ; and this seems to he the gen orally accepted idea. The Wol cott men carried the county two years ago with Gray and Bayard to hack them or rather ' Gray and Bayard carried the county and the' Wolcottites were benefited by it, encouragement that ostensible victory tlie latter are working like beavers to win another. Thtir main strength lies in South Murderkill and Kenton hundreds, tint everything that is anti-Saulsbury in all the other hundreds is Hocking to their standard. East Dover the Republicans are working heart and soul witli them financially and Leading Republicans are votes and bringing influence they have to individual Democratic voters in thoir favor. And this is having the effect that would naturally be pected. It is embittering the rank ami file of their opponents, until the personal feeling which until recently was confined almost entirely to the leaders, has widened and deepened until the entire county, is permeated with it. All this [will have its effect at the county Ition. When the Ito-morrow gather at the Court House on |HBezt Thursday, ion may expert to see ^Hthem take matters in their own hands. few of the leaders on each side ^Bmay lie opposed to the adoption of ^Hthe "unit" rule, or the motto that the ^■majority shall take »11. On the Sauls Hliiiry side if they win this would certainly tlie policy of the leaders who "look ^Habend," and hence would lie loath to "iMish the precedent. But on the HWolcott side it is openly asserted that ^■should they secure the control of the ^Heonvent ion they would apply the same ^Htactics they used at tlie convention to ^Helect delegates to the national convent ion St. Louis, and not give 'The family a Hd—n tiling," "If the anti-Saulsbury and with the comes from one Here in personally. soliciting what bear upon ex conven elected delegates But, as stated above, if the delegates ^Htake matters in their own hands tlie ^H*'onit" rule will bo applied no matter who ^Hwins. "Wo are not fighting Democrats, disruptionists and Republicans," will the motto of the Suulshury followers, ^H"»nd the sooner we kill them off the het for the party," and the "killing off" ^■process will be adopted. It is not likely that any attempt will made at. the State Convention to ^■slaughter Mr. Peninglon, although all ^Hsorts of rumors are afloat as to what vs ill done if Wolcott shall control that con j^Hvention. Remington has many friends ^Heven among the opposing faction and as lias precedent in ins favor, it is ^Halmost certain that no matter who con ^Htrols he will win. He is also a strong institutional convention man. THE STREET MARKETS. llVache* Overshadow Other Things. I Plenty Vegetables.

It is probable that some of the committee will go over to the tornado district every day. A visit to the ruins and a knowledge of the desolate condi tion of the families there, will make any one desire to aid them in their extremity. Total DICKINSON COLLEGE. The Ufv. Dr. Jacob TUriel*« Chance* for the Presidency of the Institution. One of the trustees of Dickinson Col lege, who is a resident of this city, gives it as his opinion that Dr. Jacob Todd of Grace Church, is the most prominent candidate for the presidency of the col lege. At the annual meeting of tho board of trustees of the college, last com mencement, the matter of electing a president was referred to a committee to make nominations and report to the board of trustees nt a meeting to bo called by tlie committee early in August. As yet the eonimitee lias not notified tlie board that they wore ready to report. The time is short, as the collegiate term begins uiiout the middle of September. The committee is composed of General Clinton B. Fiske, chairman ; Dr. David H. Carroll of Baltimore, Hon. John B. Storm of Stroudsburg, Pa.. Dr. Thompson Mitchell, president of Dickinson Semi nary, Williamsport. Pa., and Hon. J. A. J. Creswell of Elkton. Md., who repre sents the Wilmington Conference in tlie committee. It is probable that the delay in the action of the committee, is owing to General Flake's candidacy for Presi dent of the United States on the Prohibition ticket. He is doubtless very busy nianngingPiis campaign. Dr. Todd lias not signified that he would accept tlie presidency of the col lege if it were tendered him; neither has he said that he would refuse it. He is well qualified for tho position in every way. and there is a strong probability of his name being presented to the trus tees. A number of his friends are work ing for him. In the event of his election and accept ance. Grace Church xvould regret his de parture, and great pressure would no doubt lie brought to bear to get. him to remain. The argument that would be used in favor of his accepting would be that his sphere of usefulness would la' enlarged and therefore it would be his duty to accept. Another candidate men tioned is ex-President James M. Williams, of the Wesleyan College of this city. Ho is now president of a New England col lege. A number of other names have been mentioned in addition to these, but none authoritatively. Surreattful Delaware Bon. George W. Philips and his mother of Bellevue, Brandywine hundred, returned on Tuesday afternoon from a visit to friends and relatives in Indiana, and they bring with them glowing reports of the Indiana crops in general and of the crops of the Brandywine hundred farmers in that state in particular. The Lloyd and Bratton boys, whom they visited, and who went to Indiana from Brandywine, they report as doing unusually well. All of them own beautiful farms, ranging in areas from 40 to 600 acres. John Bratton is probably the most successful. He owns a farm of 70 acres, acquired by his own exertions, in Boone county, hid., The soil of tills farm is a black vegetable mould from two to five feet in depth. Tho Courage of HI* Conviction*. Cabi.isi.r, Pa., August 23.—Colonel Owen Hamilton, one of the most influ ential Republicans of this section of the «tâte, lias declared his intentions to with draw from the "grand old party" he had served so long, and work and vote for th<$ election of Cleveland ami Thurman.

Considerable HumIhokm In n Short Time Trammeled. It took an even half hour for City Council to transact the city's business last evening. There was a pretty good attendance of the members and President Karra hold the gavel ns usual. After reading the minutes Councilman Quinn us usual set the ball rolling by presenting a favorable report of the Financial Com mittee upon the claim of John Bennett for $3,411 overpaid capitation tax. The report of the committee was adopted as» was another report releasing John P. Donahoe as surety upon the bond of Richard 11. Griffith, City Treasurer. The committee had examined that officers ac counts and found them correct. The city treasurer's report showed that the city had the snug balance in bank of $345, <l:i(V95, divided as follows: current ex penses $343 TOO. 34, to buy sand lots. $5,103.07, and what is left of the money to buy parks, $437 „04. To increase the balance last week, E. P. Moody turned in $487, Martin J. Mealey, $030.13 and the Board of Water Commissioners $3,400. Mr. Quinn presented a communication from City Auditor Newell, stating that lie had sold the property of Hoary Dougherty to Francis S. Bradley to satisfy n lien against it and asking the City Council to confirm. The request was complied with on motion of Mr. Quinn and the proper persons directed to prepare a deed of conveyance. The Finance committee again took the floor and sho ired that they were a hard working committee. Mr. Quinn pre sented a report slating that the commit tee had examined the accounts of Dennis Kane, ex-collector of taxes for the South ern district of the city,from June 1,*1887, to the expiration of his terra of office and had found them correct, with a bal ance due Mr, Kane of $1,117,57. Mr. Quinn stated that the accounts had not been examined since Juno 1,1688, by any one, and no settlement had been made by any one for that time. The former chairman of the committee during Mr. Kane's term was dead. He hoped that in the future these accounts would not be allowed to run so long. It was not business-like. The neglect of some one had caused the auditor, treasurer and clerk two or three weeks to find every entry, and to have them verified. From tlie best authority and evidence obtain able, tlie account was correct, and his motion to draw an order in favor of Mr, Kane for the amount due him was then adopted. Mr. Chambers presented communica tions from Mrs. E. B. McComb asking for $33.88 and Robert McCauiloy for $16.51 overpaid taxes. Tlie Board of Education will receive an order for $1.916.67, its monthly stipend. Tlie Finance and Police committees pre sented a joint report favoring a police patrol wag tee was adi wore on. The report of t lie commit opted. Mr. Baugh called the ordinance, establishing the patrol service for a third reading. Mr. Quinn requested the gentlemen to withdraw the motion for one week so as to allow tho matter to be thoroughly considered by the members of Council. He was himself in favor of the wagon, but he wanted to know how the patrol was to lie maintained. He hud fre quently seen disgusting arrests which were bad examples to the rising genera tion. He felt that it was his duty to aid in securing a wagon for the police officers. The motion was then withdrawn. It was asserted after Council adjourned last evening that the real cause of the opposition came from the Republican members of Council. They are said to be ■solidly against it. Tlie point taken by them Is on the score of economy, hut the real cause is said to bo a feeling against Mayor Harrington. At8.30p. m. Council adjourned. During the evening the following orders were drawn; Tucker A Cox, $3,75; Heul A Brother, $15,94; H. E. Heed. $35; Thomas C. Young, $10; and James T. Gray, $17.50. LOTS OF PEACHES.

MONAGHAN ON THE TICKET. .... ..., Je wants Thurman -- . . , .... Head and 2.ee Added. In answer to some inquiries touching upon Mr Cleveland's candidacy, as pro- pounded to U, K. Monaghan, Esq., by a West Ches er, (Pa.) Local News reporter Elevated to the yesterday, that gentleman replied in Hie following words: "You urge me to tell yon how the Democracy campaign. paper and I will tell you how our old Democratic party can win. "First, As Mr. Cleveland has not by let ter accented the nomination, now let him write a letter declining the nominatien and retire at once from the contest. This will save our party from the fatal folly of his last annual message, which unjustly discriminates against and antagonizes the interests of 80,000,000 of agriculturists and (hoir families and favors exclusively 8,000,000 of manufae tures and their families only. We would also be relieved from Hie odium of his acquiescence and tacit approval of that monstrous $30,000,000 river and harbor steal ! can certainly win in this Well, give me a piece of ''Second. Next, move up Hint real and true old Jacksonian Democratic states mau, Allen U. Thurman, to the head of the ticket and fill the second place on the ticket with that popular and brilliant statesman, Governor Wise [Lee] of Vir ginia, or thut other equally brilliant and gallant Governor, General Gordon of of Georgia! Then, with such a ticket, we would have » real, old fashioned Demo crathi campaign, full of life and soul and triumphing spirit! "Third. hi order to clear the old ship of tho barnacles, I would banish to the rear that crazy crank from Kentucky, and that wild mustang statesman from Texas, and those two British directors in tlie British railroad from Ohio and Penn sylvania, and 1 would place the real Dem ocratic statesmen in front to lead ns, and then we would have n contest worthy of our grand old party, and then we will give our opponents a Waterloo in No vember." Mr, Monaghan for a long term of years has been a prominent member of tho Democratic party of Chester county, and several times his name has been con spicuously used ia connection with the office of Governor. He did not vote for Mr, Cleveland four years ag if, and since then he has stoutly adhered to the belief that Mr. Cleveland was not a fit man to represent the party in Hint high position. Mr. Monaghan's decided stand in this matter has awakened much interest and elicited no little comment in ail circles here. (Mr. Monaghan declined to vote for Cleveland four years ago, because of his relations to Maria Halplii. Robert Emmet Monaghan is the son of an Irish revolu tionist. who tied to this country in 1708. He bus addressed Democratic audiences in this city and is one of tlie most culti vated as well as courageous men in his state. ] CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. •luBtltWN' Cawj Heard In Three Offirej.
