Tctn -t,.- » ELECTRICITY IS PEEK IEEE'S. Capitalists From Baltimore Favor the Project and It Is Proposed to Organize a Company With a Capital of «500,000. Cektbkvillb, Md., Feb. 24 —A char ter has been prepared for an electric railway through Queen Anne's county. The project has been considered for soma time by capitalists of this county and of Baltimore The incorporators at present men tinned are I. B Brown, W. W. Bnsteed and Wilmer Emory, of Centrevllle, and R C. Davidson, Bartlett 8. Johnston, W. B. Brooks, Jr, and William 8. Bosley, of Baltimore. It la proposed to organize with a capital of $500,000. The plan hat not been fully formulated, but the in tention Is to construct the railroad from Centrevllle to Queenstown first and then to extend it nortb to Cbestertown via Churchill, andlalso'isouth 'to Love Point, on Kent Island. Possibly there will be branches to Denton throngh Wye Mills and Hillsboro and also to Easton. One of the Baltimore members, with an expert civil engineer, recently rode over a part of, the proposed route Both were impressed with tlbe section of the country and the character of the sur face, which is such that the expense of laying track, grading, etc., would be comparatively small. The accomplishment of this sehe me would supply what seems to be a neces sary means of communication between the residents of the sections throngh hlcb it is proposed to build the line arious plans have been pnposed, but noue were ever adopted. It Is hoped here that the present movement will re sult in the construction of a road, which, it ia asserted, will give excellent returns to the stockholders. A day at to V A FAKE BEAR STORY. AN ENERGETIC REPORTER ON A MORNING PAPER TAKEN IN. People of South Wilmington Startled By the Story of u Bad Black Bear Who En tered a Slaughter-House und Killed a Dog-Au Advertising Scheme. The bear story, which was published In the Morning News of to-day under a big bead, was a pure and unadulterated fake. It originated in tbe brains of several men who were after free advertising and the credulous reporter readily took the bait and swallowed it whole and is now tbe laughing stock of the city. The story published was as follows: Tbe scene of tbe battle was the yard of Biermann & Brothers' pork hatchery iu South Wilmington. About 4.30 o'clock Otto Batzd, foreman for tbe Biermanns, was in the slaughter house dressing some bogs for market. While at bis work be heard a dog bark ing and making a great commotion in tbe yard. Hastily grasping a large mallet, such as is used in killing bogs, Batzd started for the yard. On the threshold of the slaughter house he stopped, as the sight that met hla eyes nearly froze the blood in his veins. Standing on his haunches was s goad sized black bear, clawing wildly at tbe Urge watchdog owned by the firm Before Batzd could reach tbe bear the animal swung one of his paws and catch ing the dog on its side ripped the flesh wide open. The dog retreated, but im mediately tackled the bear again. Batzd thought it time to take a band. He stepped into tbe yard, and as he did so the bear left tbe dog and made a rash for tbe man, who v/as by tbls time near tbe middle of tbe yard. The batcher stepped forward to meet the bear, which was rushing forward, but sud denly moved to one side. The bear did not have time to change [its coarse, and as it passed Batzd he raised his hammer, swung ~ m it with full landed it in tbe middle of the bear's back. Tbe blow slightly stunned the animal, and it sank on its knees. Tbe bear was not an instant off its feet The dog was attacking It from behind and it again turned its attention to the canine, causing it to retreat behind the bouse with the bear following it Batzd followed the two animals, and swinging his hammer again hit the bear on tbe jaw. Tbe bear sank on its knees again, and before it eonld regain its feet Batzd bad bit it twice on the forehead,crashing iu its skull and killing it. The dog was so badly injured, where tlie bear's claws bad cut into lia body, that Batzd killed it to put it out of us misery. Batzd skinned tha bear and hung the carcass *np in the slaughter-house, brought toe skin to tha bouse of a friend where it is on exhibition. Tbe bear weighed between 150 and 200 pounds, and was an animal of great strength. No sensible person eonld read the above story and believe it. The idea that a bear eonld walk throngh any part of a city settled as thickly as South Wilmington Is is (preposterous. Several people living in tbe vicinity were interviewed by a reporter tbls morning and rone of them had heard of tbe bear. Otto Betz, for that is tbe name of the alleged bear slayer, when questioned, contradicted himself several times. Tbe statement that one dog was killed is not true, as the firm only owned two, and both of these iu the yard this morning. Qrinley, colored, who is employed about tbe slaughter-house, was working all tbe afteruoou aud saw no algos of a bear. The saloon-keeper, who was to derive the benefit of tbe story by exhibiting the hide, Is now kicking because bis name was not mentioned. He is showing tbe skin to prove the story bat the bear was not killed anywhere near Wilmington. force and 2 J. for at at AT - He de were chained William of of and pos sec with We take up, clean and relay cxrpets and reupholater furniture, prices lowest, satisfaction guaranteed. 118 King stroetf CITY NEWS IN BRIEF.

Sussex Wants John Biggs to Go to Congress. MOEE TIMBEB THAN IS HEEDED A SuHsex County Politician Talks of the Situation, as]He Kinds It—He Does Not Think That Houston. Dorman, Birman, Stevens or Frame Are In us Winners. "Sussexcounty has more gubernatorial timber than It has a market for," remarked a leading Democratic poll tician of that county when in town a day or two ago "The Democrats are looking for tbe straigbtest piece of this timber for the head of tbe ticket next November. The supply Is greater than the demand, out each piece of tim her has Its advocates, and earnest ones at that. "We have ex Clerk of the Peace Ebe Tanoell, ex Hpeaker of the Senate Charles B. Houston, ex Senator John B Dorman, ex Speaker of the House Wil liam L Slrmau, Col James J. Ross, Col. William H. Stevens and Paynter Frame. From such au array of men it is difficult to tell just which will be chosen. "At this season we have little to do but talk politics and we do it with a vengeance, eagerly received and ft must be a very obscure Democrat from either of the northern counties who Is not asked to tell ns candidly tbe sentiment of the Democrats of hla county. Of coarse tbe nomination is ours to make and the other counties will rectify our choice, bat we want to pnt a man on the ticket who will bring ont a full vote all over the state." "Whom does Sussex regard as its most available man?" asked the re Outside advices are porter. "It seems that there Is an unanimity of opinion regarding 'the selection of Mr Tunnell," was the reply. "It Is thought that all factions of tbe party can unite on him. He ts tbe leaning candidate by all odds, and is tbe first choice of nearly all tbe Democrats of Sussex county. "There is a prevailing opinion that be will not make a fight for tbe nomination, but that, If it. ia offered to him, he will accept It. If, however, he were to de cline tbe honor, there seems to be a diversity of opinion as to who is tbe next available man. It is thought by the prominent members of the Democratic party In Sussex county, that some man from the western part of the county, who had not made any political enemies and upon whom tbe western portion of tbe county could nulte is the next best selection "They believe that if Ehe Tunnell will not accept tbe nomination then they should name a man from tbe western part of tbe county who can carry the delegations against the other aspirants there." "Is there such a man there?" "Yes. If snch were to happen, the choice of the western part of the county is largely and strongly in favor of Colonel James J. Roes, cf Seaford. While he is a member of the Ross family, which, at times, has been strongly identified with certain factious, be himteif, has not made enemies, as some other members of the family have done, and his friends are numerous. "There Isa sentiment on foot among a certain element in) a certain part of the county, in case of the declination of the nomination by Ehe Tunnell, to run in John B. Dorman, of Drawbridge. This Is not looked npon with favor by the more prominent and inflaeutUl portion of tbe Democratic parly, who do not think that he sizes up to tbe situation. "Ex-Speakers Houston and Slrmau are spoken of, bat it Is not tbongbt that they will be able to connect while Colonel Stevens and Paynter Frame are stand ing candidates'' "What do the Sussex men say about tbe representative to be selected by New Castle county delegates?" "There is almost as much interest manifested iu this as there is about tbe governorship. Everything is wide open for the nomination of ex-Attorney Qeneral John Biggs. We have heard that Mr. Biggs does not wish, at this time, to go to Congress While we leave it entirely with New Castle county, we do not think a more available mau oonld be found. Next to Mr. Biggs the choice is Samuel H. Bancroft. Messrs. Handy, Conch and Whiteman are spoken of, with Mr. Handy preferred if neither Biggs nor Mr. Cooch endowed with Is a Bancroft ia is not rega the prerequisites for tbe place, while Mr Whiteman is thought to be too young But let New Castle county name the man of its choice and Snsaax county will give him solid support and a de cisive majority.

Tbe act provided that ha should be elected on tbe first Thursday In May, which would have given Mr. Lee a year more In office had net Dr Shortlldge end hla Republican colleague* forcibly ejected him on Jnne 8, drilled open the safe and Installed Secretary Colqnohoun, a Republican, In bis steed. Lee entered suit for bis seiet y until the next May, on tha ground that the Board of Health had violated the statute In holding the election on any day but May 1. He was offered salary for three dsys and refused it. City Solicitor Elliott contended in conn this morning that it was s remedial statute. Therefore that It should be be liberally construed. The court said the question involved was whether the Board of Health had the right to elect the secretary on any other day excepting tha first day of May. Tbe position assumed by the city was fonr fold; First—That the plaintiff cannot, in thla action by the question of hla light to the office, bring a collateral proceed log Second—That tbe Boaid of Health had the legal right and power on June 3, 1801, to elect a successor in office to tbe plaintiff under the act of May 14, 1891, and that he was from the time of his election and quali fication tbe de jure as well as tbe de facto secretary of the Board of Health and city registrar, and, as such,registrar of deaths, births and marriages, and that tbe plaintiff was not tbe de jure officer, as he certainly was not tbe de facto officer, during tbe time for which he claims the salaries of tbe offices. Third—That even admitting that tbe plaintiff was tbe dejure officer by reason of tha absolute Invalidity of tbe election of his successor, who became the de facto officer, still tbe p'aiutiff Is not entitled, iu this proceeding,and ander tbe facts lu this case, to recover tbe amount of tbe salaries attached to tbe offices. Fourth—That the cause of action wroug and the declaration la iuauffloient in law, being based on a contract express or Implied, whereas, as a matter of law, tbe right infringed ia not a right arising by contract, express or Implied. Mr. Cooper contended that statutes remove corporate officers should strictly construed. That although there ia no vested right iu an office which may not be disturbed by legislative enactment, yet to take away the rights thereto tbe terms of the statute In which tbe pur pose is stated must be clear. That man datory statutes exclude any other way of complying with the statute than that named in the statute la Illustrated by tbe numerous cases where statutory rights and remedies are given In respect which the statute mast strictly pursued. A construction to give a statute a prospective operation Is always to be preferred, unless a pur pose to give it a retrospective force expressed by clear and positive command, or to bo inferred by necessary, unequivo cal and unavoidable implication from tbe words of tbe statute taken by themselves, and in connection with tbe subject mat ter, admitting of no reasonable doubt, bat precluding all questions as to such intent. " The court reserved its decision. — On application of Martin B Burris jndgment In tbs case of Benford Vaughn vs. George H. Houston, was stricken from tbe record. Court adjourned until Monday morn ing at 10 o'clock. Workmen Who Want Work.
