Of course lie is delighted as he climbs down on tlie carpet a knee at a time, and makes a little bow knot warranted to hold just five minutes.

The Springers, the Petersons and a dozen other families have conspired for years to disturb real estate titles in Wil mington, but all their efforts have been in vain. But now even they are in danger, |even if they should he suc cessful In turning ont into the cold world the greater portion of Wilming ton's inhabitants. of being rectly called upon to defend their acquisition against a new claimant. The new ooveters of Wilmington have the papers, and they are after what is known as the Gilks oi Jilks estate. They claim for their particular portion of the uni verse, all that part of Wilmington be tween Poplar and tVashlngtou streets and extending from the Christiana to the Brandywine, and north of line running about through Fifth street. The first of the Gilks or Jilks. the name being spelt both ways, in Delaware was Edward, he having received a patent from King George the Second, for the track of land mentioned. Edward Gilks remained on his tract, it seems, but a short time, and after a few years he made a lease of it for ninety-nine years to one William Verhoff. He then joined a band of early western pioneers that was bound for Ohio. The family forget about their lands in Delaware. The descendants of the Gilks family now live in Toledo, Ohio. Recently in looking over some old papers a member of the family discovered the old lease for this tract of land. Investigation was at once commenced and it was soon found that the lease had been allowed to run out, and those who had been benetitted by it still continued to hold the land as if it had come to them in fee simple. A meeting of the heirs was called and of the old family there were only left a few descendants. It was decided to make an effort to obtain pos session again of the property of their ancestor. Messrs. St ruble and Stiger, prominent attorneys of To ledo, wero engaged to prosecute the claim. The legal firm at once wrote to Recorder Holcomb, but received no satisfaction from him. He was not able to find the lease on the record. So they engaged the services of George Lodge, Esq., of this city, Mr. Lodge at once commenced an investigation and he has gone far enough to feel convinced that his clients have a most excellent case. Suits of disposses sion, he says, will be commenced just as soon as all the papers in the case can be arranged and got together. The Journal reporter interviewed Mr. Lodge in relation to the claim this morn ing. but that gentleman was exceedingly reticent about the faets of the case. He holds that it would be very injudicious to furnish his facts to the public until the proper time arrives,that is, when the case is in the courts. The business men and citizens residing on the tract of land can feel secure, however, for some time to come, ns it will take quite a long time for the parties to arrange their case di a be : that it can properly presented. There will lie another difficulty in the way in the necessity of Hie Toledo people to prove that they are tlie legitimate descendants of the origi nal Edward Gilks. Of this there is some doubt. The records of tlie early grants of land in Ohio show that Edward Gilks received a large grant there, but his name disappears from tlie records and it is a long period before it again comes to light. Tlie possession of the lease, how ever, will be strong evidence in favor of the claimants, they think. A real estate owner has estimated the tact of land which is claimed at about $15, 000,000. As there are enly a few heirs there will be a couple of millions a piece. Tlie Springer aud Peterson families are nu merous enough to people a town like Wil mington, and if they should have been successful in their designs there would have beeiiM only a few thousand dollars apiece to be distributed. The [Journal building is located on the property claimed by the Gilks, but President Pyle of tlie Journal Printing Company lias as yet made no arrangements witli Mr. Dodge to secure the Gawthrop Building for the future publication of the paper. so VICE-PRESIDENTS ELECTED.

KEEP THE BALL ROLLING A family of Marplots White Hair May ■e a Hardened 8tnn*r—Politician« CSi With Diploma*. The appointment of City Solicitor J. Frank Ball as judge of the Municipal Court caused great er consternât ion among the local Democrats than anything that has taken place in .recent years gathering of prominent Democrats lust evening, all of them holding offices and representing different factions of the party, the action of Governor Biggs was unanimously and vigorously condemned, and much sympathy expressed for Judge Turner. In n Among the Irish-American Democrats the action of the governor is felt more keenly. They say that he has no love for them, and that he broke faitli with Pete J. Ford when lie was a candidate for sheriff. There was every reason to tic lieve from Governor Biggs's words aud actions that lie would aid Mr. Ford's aspirations, and it is said to be equally certain that lie did not turn a baud to help him. A Democrat who did not wish ids name used said ia regard to tills matter: "The whole theory of the appointment, ii-ide Irom tlie polities of it, is explained In Biggs's Know Nothing sympathies. It is true that he did not join the Know Nothing party like his brother Sewell, but his sympathy was that way and seeing that the movement would In time come to an end, lie covered himself with tlie mask of his political hypocrisy and joined the Democratic party. Mark my words when I say that no Irish or Catholics need apply under this adminls trillion. Monaghan was appointed justice of the peace because ho was the only man among the applicants that had been an out-and-out supporter of the governor, Brady would have, received tlie appoint ment, if lie laid not made an unfortunate expression of his high regard for Secre tary Bayard. But what else can you ex peet from the Biggses. They have ... marplots in Delaware polities since they have been known. Sewell C. Biggs sent poor Gove Sanlslmry to ids grave, had Ids confidence, conducted his last campaign in New Castle County and then struck a knife into Ids heart when ho was u candidate for Senator. Governor Biggs puffs himself up witli the idea that ids own personal popularity made him gov ernor. It is ail bosh ; he could not have come within KM) miles of it if it had not been for the Saulshurys, and look how ho lias treated them on one or two occa sions, In fact, about the only appoint ment they have controlled was that of John P, Sauisbury as secretary of state. Then there is Cooper and Kenney. They are like marionettes, made to move when Governor Biggs pulls the strings, and rest assured they would nut be stumping Kent county to day for (he Wolcott combination if they laid not the implied consent of the governor, while at the same time he uses subterfuges of all sorts to keep out of Kent county himself. Governor Biggs is the most insincere man in Delaware politics. I tell you that there are men in this city who do not say muoh, but they will quietly wait their opportunity to squelch any Biggs that nppe will i 11 ars on the surface and some of them not forget that W. 1*. Biggs is a can didate for representative." It is said on tlie street that it is now tlie plan to make Willard Haulibtirv, Jr. tlie next city solicitor. It is said, too, that within the last three weeks lie Has expressed a desire for the position, it is tlie prevailing opinion, however, among well-informed Democrats that Willard's schemes will go wrong and It will take him a few more years in New Castle county before he will he able to secure enough votes in theCitv Council to elect him to any position, Ylis inter feronce in.this matter lias brought down on Ids head some pretty hard remarks aud among the Saulshury Democrats there is a general regret at his lack of true sagacity. It was due to him they say, that the city was lost to the family in the recent primary election. He is said to have had an idea that all that would be necessary to shove Mr. Quinn out of tho Senatorial race would be for him to issue the fiat and bring Mr Mullin out. Tills, as is known, resulted in the defeat sf Mullin and made Quinn angry. A life-long Sanlsbury man in speaking of the judgeship yesterday, said: "This thing will hurt the Democratic party this campaign ; but it will not in the future, fur tlie reason that it will turn nu in bei s of Democrats over to the Bayard Gray faction and make the Sauisbury-Biggs faction decidedly small. 1 propose to leave them for 1 am tired of working and training with men who indulge in kin dergarten politics. 1 want to I«' among graduates in tlie school qf politics, and the Bayard faction is composed of grad nates and no mistake." Should Mr. Ball ment there is every reason to believe that Judge Turner would be selected for city solicitor as several members of City Council who did not vote for him before have expressed a desire to do so now. His friends claim for him ten votes out of the seventeen Democrats in Council, and it is thought that if tlie election was to be held on next Thursday evening he would receive one or two more. cpt the appoint at CHURCHES AND MISSIONS.
