Scene of Hare brilliancy The Rider« do
Some Talking.
The Wilmington Wheel Club gave a
reception last evening, to celebrate the
formal opening of is handsomely equipped
rooms at No. 1225 Market street. The
members of the club and their friends
were present- and the occasion was
further enlivened by orchestra music. In
t he rentre of the double parlor, reaching
from end to end, was the "groaning"
table covered with refreshment for the
wheelmen and their guests,
o'clock the feast began and all present
jtcrally outdid themselves in thelrefforts
Jo be agreeable. There was an ahun
lapco of cakes, leo cream, water ices,
lemonade, fruits of all kinds, coffee and
»oils. At the conclusion of this impor
tant feature of the evening's entertain
Sicnt. cigar« were passed around and the
remarkable runs and excursions made by
the member« were discussed.
William F. Kurtz, acting ns toast mas
ter. announced the following toast« and
responses : Club Racing. S. Wallis Merri
hew ; Bicycle Trials, C. F. Thomas ; The
Old Members, C. 11. Smith, Jr. ; Bicycling
at Middletown, W. S. Letkerbury; The
Roads of Delaware, ex-Chief Consul J. E,
Palmer; The Ladies, VictorB. Pyle.
Mr. Kurtz opened with a brief state
ment of tho objects of the club, and said
that it was Intended to draw all owners
of wheels, all prospective owners of
wheels, all who like 'cycling and all who
have owned wheels, together for their
mutual protection and benefit. Better
roads arc needed, and, by organizat ion,
such legislation can lie brought about.
He'also remarked that the Stanton and
Kennett Turnpike Companies were
charging toll. The charters of these
companies had been examined, and they
were not allowed to charge for anything
except vehicles drawn by animals. Hi*
advised tho wheelmen generally to refuse
to pay toll on these turnpikes, but rather
to leave their names and addressee, with
the name of the club, at the toll gates,
and the matter would probably be tested
In the courts.
Mr. Merrihew spoke of the strength of
the club and said that he little doubted
that the Wilmington team would com*
out near the head at the team race at
Buffalo, next, month.
C. H. Smith, Jr., had boon a rider once
and said be almost wished he was back in
the harness.
C. F. Thomas recited his experience in
learning to ride the machine. He said
that the neighbors used to "bolt" their
dinners to see him try to ride, and they
said ho was rather a circus in his way.
rhoraot- added t hat ho was anxious for
Khe time to come when ho would lie a
rood enough rider to become a member.
Mr. Kurtz replied that he would lie ac
tented immediately.
W. S. Lethorhnry said that the roads
In his vicinity were in a fair condition
and that he would gladly furnish any of
them to any monito r of tho wheel club,
who might write for them. J, E. Palmer
ex-chief consul of the slate, spoke of the
need of an accurate road hook and asked
the members to write up nil the new
roads they travel over, and give tho data
to the present, consul, Mr. Merrihew.
The toast-master then added that ns
Mr. McDaniel was absent, Mr. Pyle would
respond to the toast "The Ladles."
Mr. Pyle feelingly responded by giving
some toll-tale 'xperit uees of some of the
other members. This closed the toast
raoklng, and the remainder of the even
ing was spent in social chat and in listen
ing to tho music furnished by the orehes
tra. The musicians pro icnt were; First

TWELVE HORSES BURNED.
A Fire at F.lkton lïpdruys the Howard
House Stable» and Other Properly.
Hr Letter to Rvksiko .torus*!..
Ri.kton. Md., Aug. 24,—A disastrous
fire swept away the stables of William
Falls, proprietor of the Howard House,
this morning, burning twelve horses,
four mirages and the stables, entailing a
loss of at least #10.000.
A travelling man arrived at the hotel
about midnight and when his horse was
put away there was no indication of fire.
Mr. Falls heard the cry of fire coming
from the street about 2.30 a. m., and im
mediately saw the flames and smoke
madly breaking forth from the end of the
stables nearest the hotel
The two engines of the town and the
bucket brigade were summoned
engines were comparatively worthless,
however. It was at once seen that all
efforts to save the buildings would be fu
tile, and the energies of the bucket bri
gade were directed towards saving the
property of Mark Lieberman and a house
adjoining the hotel. The roof of the lat
ter was covered with wet blankets. About
4 o'clock the local firemen became dis
couraged. and fears were entertained of a
general conflagration. Charles Wells,
the operator at the I'.. W. & B. station,
telegraphed to the Wilmington Fire I)e
périment. The dispatch was received there
at 4.15a,m..and 15 minutes later the Fame
and Washington engines were on their
way to Elkton. Whtm Iron Hill was
reached they were intercepted by a tele
gram informing them that the fire was
under control. The companies returned
to Wilmington at (5 o'clock.
The stable was a total wreck and the
Lieberman building was much damaged.
Out of the twelve horses burned eight
were the property of Mr. Falls, among
them being the trotter Willew Switch,
capable of covering a mile in 2.35. She
is a fine animal, and has been used for
breeding for the past- two years. The
race yesterday was the first trotted by
her for nearly two years and she gave
promise of some excellent work.
Another horse burned belonged to
George Campbell of Philadelphia and was
valued at $1,000. Mr. Campbell offered
anyone who would save the animal $000.
J. Barkley Brothers' Company of Wil
mington îiad a wagon and two horses in
the stable. The wagon was saved, but
the horses worth over $500 were burned.
Mr "Falls's less will be at least $$,000,
George Campbell $1,000, Barkley
Brothers Company $500, Lieberman $500,
and the other buildings about $3,000,
There is no insurance upon the horses.
The building is insured. The origin of
the fire is a mystery. It is thought that
it was caused by a tramp going in and
dropping a match, as they frequently
slept in tile stable.

Brandywine Summit, Pa,, Aug, 24.—
The thermometer registered 55 degrees
in the woods hero yesterday morning and
50 degrees at the edge of the woods.
Tenters wiio slept between blankets and
under two additional were entirely com
fortablo The early morning was spent
by the folk lu re oh the sunny side of the
hill, faking a sun bath. Shawls and
overcoats were very popular.
A large crowd gathered yesterday after
noon and last evening. Supper was more
in demand than anything else. All man
ncr of vehicles brought the people from
high noon until late in the evening. The
crowd was peaceable and orderly, no dis
turbance or any kind occurred, and there
was no accident on the ground. Very
few drunken men hung on the outskirts
of the camp and the teams all moved
away quietly until at midnight scarcely a
team, except those who were waiting to
move family remained. This ramp is al
most ended. It ends the twenty-third
camp for this place and the fourth for the
present association. .It has been one of
the pleasantest gatherings.
The spiritual side of the camp has been
a success. The preaching was never bet
ter. The ministers were earnest and la
bored for the success of the camp, and as
a result many will point in after years
to the camp of 1888 as the beginning of
a new life to them.
The services of the last day were ns
follows; 6.30 a. in., prayer meeting led
by C. H. Sent man; 8.30 a.m., prayer
meeting, led by L. E. Barrett; preaching
at 10 a. m. hv Rev. H. A. Cleavcland.tcxt
Deuteronomy 33. 27. This sermon lasted
frein 10.25 ./clock until 12.10 p.m. At

on the grounds presented the camp meet

then presented an envelope well filled
with money to tho Board of Managers

of the kindness of the the hoard to the

plied as before. Then short speeches
wore made by Revs. J. D. C. Hanna. J. T.
