Sheriff Allen'« l eod Hill Passed-Report
of the Committee Adopted.
The Levy Court sat at 10 o'clock this
morning with all the members except Mr.
Hickman present. John R. Miller, sec
retary of the Wilmington City Railway
Company, presented a petition for the re
duction of tax levied on buildings belong
ing to that company on Delaware avenue.
He said that the assessment was $500
more In 1889 than in 1888, and there
was nothing to justify so large an in
crease. The court decided to defer the
consideration of the matter until
next March, the usual time for Its con
Satisfaction was ordered to be entered
on the official bond of George W. McKee,
county collector for the Northern dis
trict, he having faithfully discharged bis
duties for the year.
Mr. Weir presented a petition from
John Me&ley. (who had a mortgage ou
Ils real estate to the amount of $6,000.
He desired to pay off the mortgage and
contract a new one, and asked that the
property be released during the financial
The committee on the Sheriff's feed
bill then adjourned for consultation. In
about an hour they returned, and Mr.
Roberts read the report which isf s fol
lows :
"To the member of the Levy Court :
"The undersigned, members of the
committee appointed to audit Hie ac
counts of Alvan Allen, Esq , sheriff of
New Castle connty, hereby report that
we have attended to said duty aud
found Sheriff Allen entitled to an addi
tional allowance of $4,860.81 for board of
prisoners for the year ending March
15. 1890.
"We recommend this additional al
lowance to Sheriff Alien, be having
commitments for all persons whose
names now appear on the board sheet.
Said commitments have been carefully
examined by committee, and so far as
we can ascertain are correct".
"Joseph Roberts,
"A. 8 Eliason,
"H. H. Jordan,
"Isaac Grubb,
"W. L. Weir."
Mr. Roberta made a statement in
which he said, that when the original
sheet was presented, a claim wva made
for board for 187 prisioners on an aver
age per day daring the year.
Mr. Alien, he said had, discovered an
error afterwards and reduced his claim
to 175 prisoners per day for the year.
This be considered was still an unusually
large amount, but Sheriff Allen
explained that since prisoners who
are convicted at the Municipal
Court are sent to New Castle fn default
of paying a fine, the number of prisoners
in the connty jail had Increased. He
added that the press of the eity had
attacked the committee, while it htd by
its work * reduced the city tax by
Mr. Wier thought the practice of
sending prisoners convicted of drunk
enness at the Municipal Coart to New
Castle should be discontinued, and they
should be confined in the City Hall
instead. He believed forty eight hours
on bread and water would have a more
natatory effect on them than sixty days
in prison.
Mr. Bntton said that was done In
Philadelphia. The prisoner* coming
from the Municipal Court and charged
with drunkenness alone, 17,253 days
were charged.
The motion to adopt the report of the
committee was passed.
Mr. Roberts called attention to jtbe
condition of a bridge at Fennemore's
banks and a committee was appointed
investigate the matter.
The court adjourned till Tuesday,
September 2.

School Superintendent of Kent—Chris

Very little Interest is as yet evinced
in regard to the appointment of a sue

dent of free schorls for Kent county, tho

cede that A. P Robinson. Esq . has the

there is some quiet work being done by
Hawkins of Camden, and ho serins to

starter. How it will be when the others
enter the raes is left to conjecture, hut
as he is a Biggs supporter aad staunch
Democrat, ho evidently has a good show.
A largely-attended aud enthusiastic
meeting of Christiana hundred Demo
crats was held in the Odd Fellows' lall.
Highlands, .last' evening. John Coady
was elected chairman and William J.
McMahon secretary,
unauimcaisly elected Samuel Bancroft;
Jr.. and Thomas H. Dougherty ss dele
gates, and Michael Dorman and Jvbn W.
Macklem as alternates, to represent
North Christiana hundred in tho state
convention which meets in Dovor,
August 13.
There seems to ho a spirit of compro
mise within the ranks of tho Domociacy
of Duck Creek hundred in Kent county.
A prominent Democrat, and a knowing
one, informed an Evening Journal re
porter that he aud guvernl of his friouds
had canvassed the hundred and couid not
find wore than two or threu Democrats
who would bolt the ticket nuder auy ci r
eumstaacos. He said that the Democracy
of the hundred knows that it has
gubernatorial timber in Kent county and
will see that the Kent couaty man going
into the convention with tho majority of
the delegatee of the connty and the sup
po-t of the county caucus, shall be the
the choice of the convention as in years
gone by. no matter whether he be Rey

A Passenger on the Thoesee Clyde In
LA'rldey'n Storm Cannot Speak,
A telegram from Chester, says. Miss
Kate Beslan, who lives on Morton
avenue, has been nnable to utter a word
since last Friday night. On that even
ing she was a passenger on the steamer
Thomas Clyde, which was caught in the
severe wind sterm off Roedy Island, The
boat careened so far that one paddle
wheel was entlre'y above the water for
some time. Chairs were blown off the
deck and the passengers became terror
stricken. Mias Has! au was so fright
ened that she was deprived ef the power
of speech.
"She moves about and attends to her
work as usual, but she cannot talk, and
converses with her parents and friends
by signs. The physicians assert that she
can only recover her speech by means of
a shock to her nervous system similar to
the one that deprived her of it."
The storm which the steamer enconn
tered on Friday evening, a description of
which has already been published,
created sod havoc for a short time on the
boat, which was crowded with excursion
ista. The awnings were torn off
and the glass shattered from
the cabin windows. A desperate
rush was made for the life preservers
and many were adjusted on the fainting
aud praying women and children. Many
New Castle people were aboard the boat,
and when it stopped there to pat them
ashore, over 100 people from Pbiladel
phia left the steamer and took the train
for their homes.

press and invited guests, at the Clayton
The agents of the company hero are
George B. Venbanschoten and Alfred
Wolf. They were polite and courteous
and explained the full details to the
interested spectators.
The telephone instrument is placed
the parlor of the hotel. It consista
soutially of the same apparatus as the
regular telephone. The mechanism, how
ever, is concealed In a desk or cabinet
before which the operator aits. The
mouth piece is affixed to a long metallic
arm, aad the arm brings it to the
height of the speaker's month, so that
no trouble whatever Is 'experienced
using It. The other Important difference
between this system and the regular
system Is that the long dlstasce c impany
uses two copper wires instead of one Iron
wire In the old system, and this plan
having two wires give* a better service
than if the return current Is sent through
the earth as it is in tho old system. This
company uses only the heat materials
their system, having the wires strung
only on very high polos that range from
45 to 60 feet. During the great blizzard
this company's lines were not injured
all by the storm, when ail the other
telegbone and telegraph wires were
down. The company's subscribers
talked over their telephones as if nothing
bad happened.
The agents, last evening, had the
telephones connected with a number
ear-reeeivers, and each person heard the
same thing. There w*ro about thirty
revolvers and each one was held by
interested listener. Music was given
a band and an «rchestra of five pieces,
at the company's central office at No.
