Washington, Feb. 7.—Cashier Donalil, of the Hanover tank, tva» recalled by the »diver pool committee and examined as to his transactions with Owenby. Mr. Donald denied that he had made an agree ment with Owen by hy which Oweahy was to furnish information in regard to silver legislation and in pay for Ids services re ceive an equal share of silver to be pur chased hy a combination. lie also denied havjng agreed to purchase silver forOwen by. He was asked to do so but be had de clined Witness had never told Oweuby that he knew of others who were interested in the purchase of silver ami he had never given Owenhy the name of any senator, representative or government oflieial en gaged in such speculation. He knew of none. He denied the statement made by Owen By thnt he had shown him t he books of the bank and had pointed to names and ac counts representing sliver deals. The bank had no such books. Witness denied having shown Ownhy letters on the house and sona'e paper, and having told him "that these persons ■were in it and would vote for the bill." Ownhy, he said, had seen au envelope on his desk bearing the senate printed head, and he claimed to kumv the handwriting and said that it was that of a senator's clerk. He did not show the letter to Own by. Witness testified that he had given Own by a memorandum requesting him to get information as to how the $r>S,000,(100 na tional bank redemption fund was to lie ex pended This was the only information he hail asked Ownhy to get, aud it had noth ing to do with the silver legislation. He bad agreed to pay Ownby $250 for this in formation. He denied positively that he had any agreement whatever with Ownhy to form a silver pool. The letter from a senator which Ownhy referred to was in answer to one he had written requesting the views of a senator on the hank redemption fund, and had nothing to do witli the silver question whatever. The committee adjourned for the day. .TO SUCCEED MR. WINDOM. The Claim, of Several 1'rominout Col ored Men Crged at Heston.

Potts, who died at the Comstock fashionable boarding school in New York city on Sunday Iasi. Few people here believe the girt died from tbe effects of the pills taken, which were preserilied for her by Medical Student Carlyle W. Harris, and are anxious that an autopsy be held. It is reported that the remains of Miss Potts were not burled, although a grave had been prepared for them, but that the body wan placed in a vault. Mr. Potts is almost distract cd with grief and refuses to htlieve that his daughter is dead. He has ordered that t he casket be left open, and has placed a guard of two men over it, whose duty it is to hourly inspect the remains so that if the girl should nwakeu her life would lie saved.

Prominent Peacb (»rower« Want the EiiAtlng Peacb Yellow« Law to Kinbrnce the Whole State—The Action of the General Aanetubl? Will IKdde the Growers* Fate. St dT Correspondence Evening Journal. Dovish, Feb 6—Both houses adjourned to day until Monday. They do not seem to be working in harmony on the ad journment business, for the Senate ad journed to 11.20 o'clock Monday morning, aud the House to 5 00 Monday eveu Ing. Culm He for© the Storni A calm that foretells a storm pervaded the Senate chamber this morning. The Senators seemed to be determined to have peace iu its full meaning while the writ ten agreement lasted. This agreement expires Tuesday, and then there is no telling how long the members will have to sit like watch-dogs, four to four, afraid to absent themselves on any pra - text whatever, unless Mr. Williams returns to bis seat, which is hardly likely. There is some talk of renewing the senatorial promissory note next week if ha does not come. The,"deliberative body" held a session in the morning but none in the after noon Its business in the morning is summed up in the following few lines: Concurred in House joint resolution »to have the Sunday Star sent to the legisla tive members; to pay 8 D. Deane $10 for engrossing the certificates of the governor's election, and to pay William Hunter $47 50 for cleaning the Slate House. Besides this the House bill to reincorporate Hope Lodge, No. 21, I O O. F.. of Wilmington, was read and re ferred. Work in the House. The House session In the morning was as dull as that of the Kennte. Besides the adoption of the joint resolutions which were concurred in by the Senate the House did little if anything. Mr. Higgins gave notice of a bill to provide for the rebuilding and main tenance of certain dykes and roads in 8t. Georges hundred. These dykes were washed out several months ago by the high tides, and the roads were badly damaged. In addition to this damage there te much valuable land under water. The House bills to incorporate the J. Miller Thomas Company of Wilmington, and to amend chapter »0, Revised Code, which allows the resident judge to firm sales made by executors and ad m.nistrators at adjourned sessions, were read and referred. The House then took a recess to 4) o'clock. Shortly after 3 o'clock the House met and adjourned In a few minutes without transacting any business. To Stamp Oat Peach Tollaws, eon The interesting feature of the day the dierussion of the peacb yellow ques tiou in the House during the noou re cess. The peach growers want the existing peach yellows law amended so that U will embrace the whole state In addition to this they ask that it be rigidly enforced. Beveral days Atlix and Chipmsn ago Messrs. Higgins, were appointed a peach yellows legislative committee, and the fruit growers were invited to the House chamber to disoms the question before the committee The meeting was not largely attendtd, bu» there were several extensive peacb grow ers there, among them being John J. Rosa, E. H. Bancroft, William T Cas». J. Alexander Fulton, Q. D. Jackrou and David I Murphy. As the law which was passed last ses sion now stands, it orders the destruc tton of all peacb, al i ond, apricot and nectarine trees affected with the disease below the following line: Beginning at Wblleleysville. ou the Delaware and Maryland line on tbe west, tbeffco iu an easterly direction to Hollandsvllle, Felton aud Frederica; thence following tbe course of Murderklll river to the Delà ware bay. Upon the complaint often freeholders who are peach growers, the ? ;overnor Is empowered to have all ected trees removed. Notice is served upon the owner to remove them. If he refuses to comply they are removed by meu appointed by the governor aud the recalcitrant peach grower Is flaed $50 (or each and every offense. in Urach Growers Talk. The discussion was opened by John J. Rosa of Milford, reviewed the ravages of tbe disease said "Three commissioners should be poiuted In each hundred. They should make an inspection and report results. From these reports we can judge whether we are going upon the yellows or not. Facts ef this kind are of material impor nance, I expected there would be more peach growers here to-day ; but like most farmers each one thought somebody else wpuld come, and the consequence is here before you. But believe I tell *p me when farmers, as far as |I know them are heartily In favor of the amendments to the ex isting law. I cannot cite you one dis senting voles. Grangers' and Farmers' Institutes have endorsed them unani mously. Vwo years ago there was op position to the existing law in the vicinity of Smyrna, and the operation of the law did not cover as much territory as it should They said the trees were so badly affected that their orchards would be wiped out. But in my opinion that is r.o objection at all. It is what should be done. Until we do wipe out the infected trees we canuot wipe out the peaeh yellows. If a mau has a dis eased tree it is better out of the way." Mr. Higglus—"Have you ever had any experience in the matter of Inoculation by the axe? By that I mean, have ever given a healthy tree the yellows by cutting it with an axe that has been used on a diseased one?" Mr - Boss—"No, sir; I have never used an axe upon a sound tree after 1 have used it upon a diseased one. I am very particular in that matter." Mr. Fulton—"I endorse what has al ready been said. Two years ago we made an effort to hare the law cover the whole state. It that great change in the sentiment of the peach growers. They are now in favor ot It. A peach tree with the yellows is a dead loss and a danger to the neighbor hood. The disease is rapidly extending southward and the peach gi owing in terest will be exterminated if the rav ages of the yellows are not arrested. No core for the disease is known ; its origin is not known. Government experts have been investigating but their in vestigations have amounted to nothing. "Professor Bailey of Cornell Agricul tural College, a practical peacb grower, gives interesting facts in regard to his experience in Michigan. They had tried to raise peaches on new ground, but they were unsuccessful because there were inoculated orchards in the neighbor hood. Since they have adopted the stamping-out process they have good orchards. This shoos that there should be no question, and we should take a speedy remedy and remove the trees I bad as leave keep a corpre in uy house as an affected tree in my orchard favor of having Jlhree commissioners in each hundred, appointed for one, two and you that we Veil was opposed. Since time there has been a I am in three year?. In this way we would have snccessi.ii of commissioners. These commissioners should be compelled to inspect the trees April IB and May 15, also in July, when fruit is on the tree and they show unmistakable signs of the disease The commissioners should keep a record of their proceedings and report them to the clerk of the peace," "Mr Jackson—Thebill as it stands does not specify when trees should be pulled up. 1 don't think July would bo late enough for the last inspection. Some say give twenty days notice when a tree is condemned. 1 do not think this is sufficient. One man may have a few trees and another 10,000. Ue would be too busy to take them un on such short notice. I would suggest that thess trees should be gone over from April 1 to August 15. What trees aie found dis - eased April 1 should be taken out by June 1. The others during October and through the fall when farmers are not loo busy, I hope the bill will be so drawn as not to conflict with other things. When the commissioners make report there should be 1,040 or 1,500 copies of the reports printed and sent out so that the people may know what hai been done For ten years I lived on a farm belonging to Mr. Ollderaleeve, who is an extensive finit grower. Last winter be spent if 150 in remedies, and not a tree was cured. The only cure Is to pull them out." Mr. Rosa—' There is only one chance in a million in finding a cure. The Bor deau mixture for rot in grapes was acci dently discovered by a Frenchman who first applied it to keen thieves from, rob bing him of his fruit, and found that grapes sponged with itf did not suffer from the black rot. That Is one lustance where a cure was stumbled on. But there is no use looking for a remedy for peach yellows from a farmer's standpoint. The only thing we can do is to let the United States Government experts continue, and in the meantime pull out all infected tree"." Mr. Biggins—"Do you think it nocea sary to burn the wood?" Mr. Bos»—^*8, I burned mine for fear of inocnlation. Bur jed them right away, root aid branch." Mr. Biggins—"I'each tree wood stitnles the fuel of many farmers, and the bill will be unpopular if we cannot have wood. I think the twigs should be burned." Mr. Case—"I would not make fire wood of them, but from their root and branch. Still there Is nothing in the law to pre vent it. I feel protected under the little law we have now and would not be with out it for anything. I am perfectly will Ing for the law to extend in all directions, as far as possible. Don't destroy what little Ian we now have." Mr. Caball—"Are the ashes of the in feoted trees dangerous?" Mr. Case—"No. sir!" Mr. Cahall—"Excuse me for asking the question, but Mr. Marvel just told that the ashes of sassafras bushes would sprout. " I Daughter ] Mr. Higgins—"What is the use of trying to eradicate peach yellows if you do not dispose of the trees after thev are pnlled out? I think something should be done in this respect ." Mr. Rosa—"1 think the nlan you sng gest would probably be safer." Mr. Bancroft — "I little to say jeet, and think very quisite. We know the destructive charac ter of the disease and that ia ali Its cause has never been determined, stamping «nt has beneficial in Michigan. I claim the protection of the law r n« have very this sub little re on The law of been very you have here to-day, and it is the concensus of public opinion . The peach Interest is in tbe bands of the General Assembly, Give us a law and the peach interest will continue for a large number of years, if you do not it will soon be a thing of the past. The Michigan growers are at variance about the burning of wood. I think that aa ho on as a tree Is cat down and the foliage withers, Its power for evil has passed away. However, that is merely cur opinion " Mr. Rosa—"Beyond a question the future of the peach grower is in the hands of the General Assembly to-day. Cast your eyes North and South and you can see it. You can preserve it to us and New Castle county can again bo made to grow peaches." The meeting then adjourned. I.aKtslativa Not«» A bill will be Introduced into the House Monday to bond the towu of Milford for $35,000 the object being to put in water works A bill for free teift books for the public schools and requiring school clerks to give bond will also be introduced.
