To Organize a Compary.
The firm of Joseph Bancroft and Sons,

on the Brandywine, will soon be merged
into an incorporated company.
P. and Samuel Bancroft. Jr., the present
members of the firm will retain the con
trolling iu'erest in the new company.

a cotton factory, with 1500 spindles.

aud dyeing cotton goods was added,
and William P. and Samuel
Bancroft, Jr., taken into the firm,
which was organized with the name of
Joseph Bancroft and Sons. Joseph Ban
croft died in 1874. Since that year the
works have been much enlarged. In

enlarged and refitted, and the equipment
increased to 7000 spindles and 190 loems

Mr. Lawton Withdraws.
The death of Mrs. William Lawton has
caused the withdrawal of Mr. William
from the management
department and
the manufacturers' and merchants'
display in the coming fair. Mr. Lawton's
letter to this effect has been received by
T. D. Brown, secretary of the fair asso
dation. No person has yet been selected
to fill Mr. Lawton's place. It is a
hard position to fill satisfactorily.
All those who-know the necessities of the
two departments left vacant, while sym
pathizing with Mr. Lawton in his be
reavement, regret that he baa withdrawn
from their management.

Insane Hospital Superintendent.
Dr. D. A. Harrison, who was elected
medical superintendent of the State In
sane Hospital, has declined to accept the
position. He is now superintendent of
the Kings county (N. Y.) insane asylum
at St. Johnslaud. L. I. The reasons he
gives are that he has a fine home by the
sea with his family, and would rather
remain there. The board will hold a
special meeting at the hospital on Thurs
day morning, at 10.30 o'clock. There are
many applicants for the position and
they will probably consider the applica
tions and expect to elect a superinten
dent.

J. A. Magee moved that the vacation
be extended one week in order that the

fair. The motion was seconded. Presi
dent Baird stated that the motion being
an amendmeat to the by-laws, it was
necessary to give two weeks notice before

wrong, as the children hav9 plenty of
holidays, there being but 192 days of

fair would beuefit thechildren, especially

Dr James H. Morgan was received from
A. B. Jones aud George W. Goodley, and
read.
A motion to lay it on the table was
lost. Dr. Morgan made an explanation
of the matter, similar to that published
in the Evknini; Journal. He thought
it a censure on the committee for the
board to ask for an investigation. Joseph
Pyle thought the explanation good and
in order. William Turner, a member of
the Repair Committee, said they were
ready to have everything investigated.
