Stuart, on Monday secured from a man by name of Simpson. nearChrlstiena, a large, strong able male fox and immediately noti his patrons and friends of the sur rounding neighborhood that the fox wonld turned loose on Washington's Birth if the weather was fit for the hunt. Abont 8 o'clock yesterday, the huntsmen horseback began to arrive, accom panied by their hounds, and by 11 o'clock there were at least fifty huntsmen and many hounds ready to give old Rey the argument whenever Mine Host Stuart saw fit to turn him loose. The time set for liberating Reynard precisely at 12 o'clock, but on ac count of the lunch Mr. Stuart had pre pared for the huntsmen having to be dis josed of, Reynard was not shaken out of bag until 12 15. Tbe writer, through courtesy of Track Foreman J. H. Hastings, was taken up in the second story of the Pennsylvania Railroad Com pany's warehouse, where he had a splendid view of the hunt for several miles. After the fox was liberated he dashed at a rapid pace for about au eighth of mile when he stopped, looked back and that he waB not being pursued. Then jbe lay down In the snow, had a good roll and placed around for a little while. Presently Tie threw up his head much as to say to the hundred or more huntsmen and spectators "good by,'' when he struck off, taking a northerly course toward his old home. J. B. LeFevre was chosen as the one who should decide on how much start fox should have on the hounds, and being authority on fox-hunting, the decision made by Mr. LeFevre was. that owing to the snow, the fox should bave least fifteen minutes' start on the bounds. This met the general approval the huntsmen minutes had elapsed, with the fifty hunt8meu in saddle, with prancing steeds, tbe dogs were liberated from the barn on tbe word being given by Time keeper LeFevre and Peter Stuart. Then the mnsio of the hounds, as they took tbe trail, could be 'heard for miles. Jndge Hastings remarked that the a start as he dogs, fifty in FAIR its haps to ing land. state. j he and the tbe with bers on the T. C. and at in 617 a After the fifteen bounds made as ever had seen number, kept closely together in taking trail and were soon on it hot, taking northerly direction across the farms of William Ward and Samuel Stewart, where tbe fox doubled and came over the railroad on to tbe farm of Eph Sterling, where he again doubled and crossed the railroad in a northwesterly direction near Bear station, when he straightened himself for Christiana, bnt Reynatd was doomed never to reach home after passing the Bear, the dogs being so hot on bis trail had bim by sight when they picked him np near his den and soon ended his earthly career, Taswell Thornton, who appeared to have the fleetest horse on the hunt and being the most g daring ; rider, snceeded in se curing both fox and brush before the dogs had time to tear him to pieces. Tbe following men, nearly all old huntsmen, participated in tbe hunt: Colonel William B. Ford, who rode his handsome black charger, Thnnder; Ben jamin Johnson, on his little bay mare, Spitfire; Leslie Gray, on bis sorrel gelding, General Knox; K. T. Barges, guiding his bay horse, Sandy Hook ; Ed ward Reybold, on bis brown mare, Fidget; William H. Hayes, on his bay hackney, Billy Bumpkin; J H. Hastings, on hU bay charger, Joe Bowers ; J.

The huntsmen and dogs arrived back from the hunt with the fox as their trophy, votiDg Mine Host Stuart their thanks forgiving them such*a pleasant outing.] 'One of tbe.most remarkable in cidents of the bnnt was the remarkable performance and endurance of Joseph Conaway,one of the railroad employes of this place. After lbe|fox réas liberated he started after him on foot, and being a rapid walker and knowing the country so well, by catting off on Raynard, he was within 300 yards .of Thornton when he picked the fox up.

The Democracy of Kent and Basées Thoroughly Organised aud free From Factional Disputes ef All Kinds. Hon. W. F. Causey, of Milford, regis tered at the Clayton House last evsning. He went home this afternoon. Referring to the attacks m sde upon him and bis brother, Representative John W. Cansey, by a Sunday paper of this city, several days ago, he said : "I challenge the atatement of the paper,referring to my speech in behalf of Collector Rusaell and the taxpayers at Armory Hall, Milford, on February 10, that it was 'a lie that he, Frederick Causey, bad advised Russell on the Saturday previous to ran as Rusaell did from away the taxpayers of Cniar Creek huadred.'" Mr. Causey says that, on the oontrary. he did advise Russell not to receive taxes on the day ef tbe excitement, bat to go home, as it was not a day set apart by the law to receive taxes. Bnt he nad said he would receive taxes that day. The excitement 'grew out of tbe rumors of chargee of illegal assessments of men who might receive tax reoelpta in both Milford and Cedar Creek hundreds, and in erder to give time to the collector to Investigate by a comparison of the assessment Hits of both hundreds he was advised to quietly leave town. All respect able and well-meaning Repub licans and the enttrej Democracy of both hundreds commended the courue pursued by Ruasell in receiving but few taxes on what baa been characterised as 'that fateful day.* He left bis law office not by the back door hut by the side door open ing ou tbe lawn aud in full view of tbe street, when a maddened crowd, com posed meetly of negroes, centered around the store where tbe collector was ac customed to receive taxee, ran np tbe street aud met him at the gate ef Causey's premises. He then received taxes from one or two persona and contrary to the legal advice given him. went to the store end wee proceed ing to receive taxes when he wisely con cluded to stop on account of the excite ment Inside end outside of the store by reason of the collector wanting te con sider the right of a colored man to a tax receipt. "Heretofore it hta appeared in publie prints that the collector quietly drove through the publlo streets of Milford his home in the country without dis turbance, which Is true. The reports that, 'an angry crowd pursued him after ills refusal to take other taxes and that Hosscll rook refuge in the home of Mr. Causey' is a lie out of tbe whole cloth aud - llfully sent to the public- press. "The talk of 'mobbing, tarring and feathering' the collector, was the idle statement ef purely cowardly men, who wonld not have dartd to do snoh a thing. These statements were sect out in hot and Indecent haste by wire on Saturday evening, so aa to appea Monday morning preceding the on the bill repealing noxious Federal Election laws which oar gallant and distinguished Senator Gray was advocating with auch force and ability notwithstanding the attacks of Senators Hoar and Chandler of the neces sity of these laws for tbe preservation of the peace of little Delaware. And Imme dlately the same statements appeared in the press of the country, which, if true, were very damaging to the high standing of Delaware." "What la the oonditlon of the Democ racy of Kent and Sussex?" "Thoroughly organized, free from fac tional disputes, and never stronger in support of the great principles laid down by the Chicago platform, especially a uniton the great question of tariff reform as set forth by the schedules in the Wil son bill, recognizing may be further modification* in tbe Sen ate looking to the relief of the people from the bntthena of taxation under tbe McKinley bill, tbe Democracy believing that the present depression is due entirely to the operation of the high-tariff meas ure."
