General Schofield decided that they inarched best. Gnneral Payne ,of the governor of Maryland's staff, and Cap tain Andersen, U 8 A., were among the many officers who voiced this sentiment.

Md., Oct. 10.— There were 8,000 persona at the Elkton fair to-day. The weather was favorable, clear and slightly warmer, and was suitable for the g Thursday of the fair. The P., W. B. Railroad carried large crowds, aud the station was filled in the morning with incomere and In the afternoon with returning visitors. The greater number of visitors came from points north of here. The crowd was hardly as large as It was on last year's big Thursday, owing The crowd to-day exceeded expectations, other things being equal. The fakirs found the warmth favorable to brisk business and many a hard earned dime tickled their dirty palms The bookmakers aud pool sellers profited by the large crowd, and pulled in their fees to a much quicker gait than any of the horses made. The premiums were not so large in the household department this year, but that did not materially affect tha quality or number of exhibits. The cattle depart ment is not so large as formerly for the tition was limited to thoroughbred to the lateness of the fair. comp« stock. No Intoxicants are sold on the ground or In the vicinity, and consequently there has been no disorder. No arrests were made to-day and everything passed off A few disgruntled betters peaceably. growled once in a while but they did not make much noise. Borne out of Elkton people brought their half pint ft asks with them, but as the contents did not hold out long, there was no trouble. The restaurant In the basement of the main building does not compare favor ably with the Wilmington Fair restaur ant It is badly lighted and not over abundantly provided with accommoda ttons. The W. C. T. U. in charge did a lively bueinoBS and furnished good meals. Many unprejudiced people have been whispering loudly that the days of the Elkton Fair are almost numbered; that a near-sighted policy on the part of its managers has impaired its usefulness; that poor management has killed its rep oration. It is affirmed in good faith that the fact of Elkton being a Local Option town Is a drawback to the fair. It does relieve the fair of a groat deal of excitement that rum would create The managers on the other side Bay the fair is all they expected and more ; that what Is lost in one department ia made up In another, that the people want the fair and will support it. The future will decide. There is still another point. Many Elkton people say the fact cannot be disputed that this year's fair is not equal to that of last year. Tuese people believe that pool selling, now allowed by tbe managers is indirectly the cause of this failure. There is something wrong somewhere and it needs attention. The athletic exercises which have always been a feature of the fair took place this morning, beginning at 10 30 o'clock. William F. Kurtz of the War ren Club took au active part in the man agement. The Warren Club of Wil mlngton reflected great credit on Its native place by Us exhibition.

Amid all the hilarity of the exlbltion the caps and red shirts of the Salvation Army were ever visible.

The Army paraded in Elkton this evening and serenaded the Howard House with "Marching Through Georgia," and then held religious service. A great many Wilmington people were at the fair to day and they were easily separated from the countrymen. Among the visitors, besides the athletes, were George D. Whiteman. Thomas D.

New Castle Interested In the ltace Blot Trial— Au Enjoyable Hop. Speclal correspondence Kvknino Journal. New Castle, October 11.—The hop given in the Kuights of Pythias Hall on Wednesday evening last was considered one of the most enjoyable of the season so far. The game of foot ball has become quite a craze with the school boys. It Is quite a pity that some of the older nues do not get lip a foot ball eleven in this place, as it is quite an exhilerating pastime. Our main street is the cause of a good many joltings-up to persons who owu carriages with stiff springs, but It Is supposed that a jarring up once in a while is good for nervousness. The Davidson Brothers still have about twelve bead of Indian ponies on hand, although they have disposed of quite a number of the pretty beasts. They will remain here several days and then, if they have not sold out, they will go to Georgetown, Del., as they wish to close out on account of their returning to the West. A movement Is on foot to start a cor respondent's club in this city. al reporters connected by direct wire with the Wil mington exchange, so that they can tele phone their news without using the ex change here at all, as, in all probability, some one would be using the Wilmington wire just when it was most needed by any of the correspondents. There is unusual interest manifested here in the trial of Rogers for killing the Pole In the recent race riot tn Dobbins ville. Much sympathy is exp the accused man and his family, which, it is understood, looks to him as the chief means of an The store of J. Opera House, when lighted up at night, materially aids pedestrianism through the brilliant light which is thrown from the large show windows. It is quite a convenience as that part of the town is not very bright generally, At least it has not been until recently. ' With the exception of one case of typhoid fever—that of Harry Jemison, who Is rapidly recovering—the town is in a remarkably healthy condition. And there is no reason why it should not be, as all its manufactories are situated outside of the more thickly populated portion of the town, thus keeping the atmosphere pure and unimpregnated with the noxious vapors aud gases which usually emanate from such places. The river, via the sewers, receives a great deal of waste products of the place, and the air is healthy and has tbe effect, especially during such crisp mornings as we are enjoying at preseut, of vivifying the individual and filling him with re new sd vigor. Grocers speak of business as being rather good at present ; and tradesmen generally, are remarking on the briskness of trade. On inquiring of a gentleman yesterday afternoon as to what he thought the citizens needed, he tersely replied: "Chicago beef." Some trnth iu that statement if you only knew it. Miss Hetty Megear of Smyrna, who has been visiting her aunt, Mrs. Alvan Allen, returned home yesterday. Mrs. Henry George (nee Cullen) of Wil mington visited friends here yesterday. William J.

Annie Jalowski, the woman with whom tbe murdered man boarded, She stated that Jankowsky was In the cellar with her. He started out. She told him not to go or ho would be killed. He replied that it was safer to go out for he would be killed if he stayed there. Wilmer Hanson, mayor of New Castle, testified next. Mr. Biggs asked him wbat Rogers said when asked by him if he had any questions to ask Carlin at his ireliminary trial. Mr. Bird objected to I an son answering that question, as be had not taken down tbe proceedings of that bearing. Detective Vandegrlft was put on the stand by Mr. Biggs to answer this ques tion. Mr. Vandegrift stated that be had written down the testimony. When Rogers was asked whether he had any questions to ask Carlin or anything to say, he replied : straight story." marked: "Yes, as straight a story as 1 ever heard, " to which Rogers replied : * I admit he tells a straight story." The other witnesses were Frank Mc Crary, Dr. R R. Tybout, John A. Shuc hardt, Frank Sliuchardt, George W. Jones aud Samuel Lane. Their testi mony was not of much Importance.

At this morning's session of court the case was continued. John Rogers, brother of the prisoner, was the first witness. Mr. Gray endeavored to prove an alibi by him. The witness was a par ticipant in the riot, bat got out of tbe fracas before tbe shooting began. He told the story of his travels about Dobbinsville on tbe night of the riot. The prisoner was with him the most of the time. He was near the Hungarian row at one time while some boys were stoning the houses. Later the prisoner went to his bouse and put his gun away and they returned to Leonard's corner, on which was a pump. While there some one said something and the prisoner went away.

The occasion of this gathering was the ordination, according to Presbyterian usage, and the installation of the young pastor elect, James T. Marshall, as pastor de facto of Lower Braudywl e church. The day was as perfect an antumn day as ever made tbe earth glad; and what this means in so beautiful a section as the one named, no one who has traversed those rolling hills and fertile valleys and looked upon their wealth of verdure aud fruit, needs to be told. Conveyances met tbe noon train at Mt. Cuba to con vey visitera who bad come from Wil mington and Philadelphia to attend the exercises. Among these were Dr. Gay ley, Messrs.
