Architecturally it Is purely Romanesque.
The structure Is absolutely fireproof, every

of the Imi'ding is the book "magazine." At
no point can the visitor see a single book

the aldermanic establishment of Dover
on Wednesday night, was mulcted f 14 50
in fines and costa yesterday morning, at
a heating before Alderman Jester, and iu
default was committed to jail.
The mystery of the safe burglary at
the office of Esquire Cooper on Monday
night, where the thieves tried to steal
the safe itself, as noted in the Evening
Journal on Wednesday, has at last
been cleared up by the arrest of one of
the parties concerned,lost evening Caleb
Stepney aud 8 am Mitchell, both colored,
gave the alarm on Wednesday morning
and now it turns out that these are the
identical individuals who tried to steal
the safe. The manner of thoir detection
is rat her peculiar, and it reflects much
credit on the detective ability of Esquire
Cooper and Constable Clark. When
Stepney and Mitchell notified Esquire
Wednesday morning about 3 o'clock, that
their office had been broken into, they
said they were on their way home from a
colored party up town when they made
the discovery and that they immediately
gave the notification. It was yesterday
discovered that Stepney and Mitchell had
left the party at midnight aud when
Mitchell was taken into custody last
evening his inability to give an account
of himself between midnight aud the time
he claims to have discovered the burg
lary, gave him dead away. Btepuey wi;l
