FOOLS LOOSEN A DERRICK.
Imminent Danaer of its Crashing Into
the Front of the Clayton House.
The big derrick at the corner of Fifth
and Market streets, used for raising
heavy stone to the workmen on the Cen
tral National Bank building, fell at 13.30
o'clock this morning. Its fall was
checked by the electric light wires on
the western side of Market street, and
no damage was done except the breaking
of several wires.
The accident was due to the loosening
of one of the guy ropes, which had been
tampered with by some young men. Two
men were noticed near the derrick before
It fell, and when it fell they ran down
Market street
If the electric light wires had broken,
the pole, which is 70 feet long, would
have fallen or. the wires of the Delaware
and Atlantic Telegraph and Telephone
Company and would have crashed into
the front of the Clayton House. The
police officers guarded the vicinity of the
pole to keep bystanders from danger.
Contractor Johnson sent for the rig
gers, John Bruce, Robert Delaney and
Harry Johnson, and they arrived at 1.40
o'clock. They tied a block and tackle on
the taut guy rope and attached the rope
to the windlass and drew the great pole
back into position.
Three incandesc mt circuits,'one arc cir
cuit and two cross arms on the line of
the Wilmington City Electric Company

An Abi« Corpn of Inutrurtom
Some important changes have been
made this year in the faculty of the Wil
mington Commercial College. Professor
O. W. Wallace, who presided over the
theory and penmanship departments, has
been succeeded by Professor J. M. Wade,
a gentleman uf nine years' successful
leaching experience and a marvelous
penman. His unique and original method
of teaching p'ain penmanship by the
"continuous elliptical motion," has won
for him golden opinions in the distant
regions from which he has been specially
brought by Principal Goldey. His work
will uo doubt croate a sensation in this
community.
A valuable add!! ion has been made to
the teaching staff in the person of Pro
fessor Charles A. Waynant, a gentleman
of sixteen years' experience, and who has
charge of the department of "Actual
Business," including practical book keep
ing, mathematics, business letter-writ
lug, spelling and rapid calculations.
Professor Waynant comes highly
dorsed, and he has been connected with
several commercial colleges in other
states and has also had actual business
in experience.
These gentlemen have been brought
from other states specially to teach In
the Commercial College. Principal
Goldey, In addition to his other duties,
will give special attention to the subject
of practical grammar The balance of
the faculty remain unchanged.
The enterprise and progressive spirit
exhibited by Principal Goldey In bringing
talented instructors into our midst,
justly entitles this institution to the lib
oral patronage It is having from all
sections.
A Jng Party of Children.
Mrs. Willard Hall Porter gave a jng
party last evening for the benefit of the
Johnston Chapter of the Alcott Club of
the Delaware Hospital. Daring the
summer tbe children have'made their
collections in the little earthen jugs, and
there was great interest and excite
ment when one after another the
jugs were smashed and the contents
carefully counted and recorded. The
total amount realized from about twenty
jugs was $80.54. This money the chil
dren have received by their own work and
they are justly proud of their efforts.
Miss May Jones won the first prize, a
beautiful silver bracelet, and Miss
Annie Woods Bird the second,
a pretty forget me not ring. The
boys'prizes, a pair of silver sleeve but
tons and a penknife, were awarded to
Masters W. Poyntelle Johnston and Wil
lard Hall Porter. The prizes were the
gifts of Mrs. Porter. The little folks
were regaled with ice cream and the re
mainder of the evening was devoted to
merry games and dancing.
A Perfect Sucres» tn Railroading.
The additional improvement, couve
nience and comfort in railroading is
manifested on the Wilmington and
Northern Railroad, which is bound to re
ceive the warmest praise from every
traveller, especially the ladies. The
improvement is no more than the
Extensible Step. At every station
they look for it. One aged Quaker
lady remarked "that the person
that invented It is a public benefactor
and deserves t he highest praise." Crowds
go to the stations to see how gracefully
the steps move up and down, and look
amazed ard" wonder what hidden power
operates them, and are surprised when
told that it Is compressed air. Several
railroad companies are negotiating with
the patentees in regard to their adop
tion.
Hnt Tatuall, Supt.. Objected.
Since the trouble between Superintend
ent Tatuall of the Brandywine Park and
the workmen of the Witter Department,

sion is now paying for lights formerly

Department. The Street and Sewer
directors had ' sent workmen ef the City
Electric Company to charge the lamps
and erect poles for electric lights, but
Tatnall, superintendent, objected. Now
the Park Commission "pays the freight."

of Delaware lose a very prominent light.
Young Dunn was a phenomenal mnal
cian. At 14 years of age ho could repeat
upon the piano or organ almost any se
lection bo once hoard, and tt is said of
him that lie would walk from Camden to
Dover to hear the open air concerts of the
band four years ago; then walk
back heme and play the airs
frota dnemory. He was also a com

summer while a student at the academy
here he delighted the people of Dover by
his performances. His parents had ar
ranged to send him to the Baltimore Con
servatory of Music this winter. He was

New Cahtlk,S ept. 28.—Phillips' Uncle
Tom's Cabin Company performed last
night to a large crowd In a tent on the
lot in front of the Atlantic House. The
play was about as miserable one as has
ever been to this city. There was neither
an actor nor a musician with the troupe.
The street parade was great, $10,000,
read the posters, invested In band, char
lots, etc , for street parade. The parade
was as follows; Brass band, making
discordant and unnerving noises In
a queer looking band chariot worth
about $50; Eva, driving a lame pony; a
cage of dogs in which were a dozen of
dogs, different breeds and styles This
was marked "Trained bloodhounds." Tbe
next and last feature of the show was a
log cabin mounted on wheels. Twenty
five cents admission was charged to this
magnificent show, If It comes here again
the persons who attended It last night
will want more than a quarter to attend
it again. The only redeeming feature of
the show was Mr. Phillips, who acted
very gentlemanly and different from the
rest of his bums.
The Pole who was hurt .In the Dela
ware Iron Works yesterday morning, was
mach better to day and able to bo
around. This seems wonderful to the
men who saw the accident, as they sup
posed he would be dead when they
reached him. Ho was working arond the
countershaft when his clothes caught In
the wheels and he was whirled around at
the rate of 100 revolutions a minute.
The machinery was instantly stopped by
Electrician Lancaster after having made
about thirty revolutions.
To morrow being the Feast of St.
Miclne 1 and All Angels the Holy Commun
