PILOT CCMM1SS10HERS' POWERS. • Owners of the Pilot Boat Howard Waut Chaucellur Wolcott to P«*hh Upon the Matter. Chancellor Wolcott has an old but in teresting case before him at the Court House to day. It is that of Pilot Charles Morris vs. the Board of Pilot Commis sioners of Delaware. Edward O Brad ford represents the complainant, and Levi C, Bird appears for the parties Je fendant. The question involved is whether or not the pilot commissioners have the right to control the pilot boats. They contend that they have that right when the boats are in service. The own ers of the boats contend that they have not. The present action arose when Pilot Mon is, of the pilot boat Howard, re fused to allow Pilot Merritt to have a berth in her. Merritt appealed to the Pilot Commissioners and they sustained the appeal aud ordered tho owner of the boat to allow him to go out iu her. Pilot Morris then carried the matter into Chancery to determine the powers of the Pilot Commissioners. At that time Chancellor NauUhury was on tho bench. The cass was argued, but he died before he had reached a decision. Messrs. Bradford aud Bird are rearguing To-day it MISSIONARY WOMEN'S WORK. INTERESTING MEETING OF THE W. F. M. 8.

About a week or so ago a party of young men from this towu had a cottage erected on the back of. or near the farm of William E Cotter, near Little Creek, for the purpose of fishing. This cottage, it has been learned, has been washed away, and, as tbe young men who ten anted it have not been heard from, much anxiety is expressed as to whether they are in the "laud of the living" or not.

GOVERNOR REYNOLDS THINKS fcO He Ilua Examined the Buds and Does Not Think That Anything Hut Kirnte« for Peachra TV 111 On to Market—What a Philadelphia Mourner found to Orv About. This weather has put the peach-bud prophet to work again, and, for the third or fonrtb time this year, one- half of the peaches have been killed. The vitality of the little peach bad Is one of the most remarkable t hinge of the century it Cometh up like a flower and is cut down nt least one half every week from Febru ary until after the "June shed," and when summer rolls around, the young peach gets its revenge by glutting the market, seemingly just to show that it cannot be killed ny rumors, counter rumors and space writers. At present the eye of the civilized world is centered on the lower part of Keut and the upper pait of Sussex county. That is the peach belt. Jack Frost may hit above the bolt aud below the belt and nobody claims a foul ; but just as soon us ho begins getting in his heavy work ou the belt lie Is cried down, and there are always hundreds of people ready to magnify the punishment in flicted. A Philadelphia paper, having heard, incidentally, of comae, that the peach crop of Delaware bad been killed, sent a reportoiial mourner down to Sussex to help the people weep. Ho wept at, the rate of $11 a column, and sent in a bill for $13. The following are samples of his lamentations over Mr. Peach: "Throughout the entire Slate of Dela ware it is almost impossible to tied a poach grower who is sufficiently sanguine to predict any kind of crop for this sea sou, in fact, the moet responsible grow ers, the men who for many years have carefully studied the business, admit that there will be absolutely no shipment of any account. The buds are dead, and nothing i-hort of a miracle can help out the growers. "Bouihof Dover are the majority of the D.OOH.'jOO trees contained In the state, and one of the most, important regions la that around (he towna of Wyoming and Camden, in Kent county. The orchards are now seen In full bloom, and to the unaccustomed eye the lovely blossom and symmeuical appearance of the trees are exceedingly pleasing, bat to the grower there Is no pleasure in the sight, (or In each bud, almost without exception, U the black germ which tells the tale of the Frost King's visit "A. W. Brown, who Is the secretary of the Peninsular Fruit Growers' Commie ter, declared that there cannot possibly be a crop On Monday of this week he picked 1,500 buds from the fifteen leading varieties of trees ana carefully wen* over the entire number. He found but 388 live peaches. "At Hridgeville, In Sussex counly, the most extensive growers are H. P and P L Cannon, sons of the only Repnhll can governor that Delaware has ever bad. H P. Cannon has 35,000 trees, and as a result of recent investigation states that not one bud in a hundred Is living He is confident that he will not ship n poach. The 'yallers is reaching this section, and be thought that within a few years growers would be compelled to uproot trees and susj end peach growing for at least twenty years "P. L Cannon has 20,000 trees in bud, bnt the buds are all dead and there will be absolutely no crop, in his opinion. Great orchards owned by the Cannons in Western Maryland are in the same condition. "At Georgetown and Milford the same story is told. J. K Truitt, of the latter place, said that perhaps there may be a tenth crop at that place, but be doubted it. At. Georgetown any buds which are not killed are of the poorest, varieties At the bay shore and at Frederics, Kent county, according to Mr. Truitt, the buds me not so bad!y Injured, but the supply will amount to nothing At Lowes there is abetter crop than elsewhere, hut so few trees that they aie not worthy of account." Dead to Star Head. Governor Robert J. Reynolds and Direct Tax Commissioner J. Frank Wilds were in towu to-day. They are both looking remarkably well. "How about tke peaches of Kent, Gov ernor! ' asked an Evkmmo Journal re porter. "Perches are dead—dead to stay dead,"was fcis unqualified reply, "and you can't talk them back to life. I have made a personal examination aud know what. There will be a few au talking ah* of the inferior vaiietiee, such as A ms den's June, Beatrice and Hate's Kirly, but they are only excuses for peaches. All tho best fruit is killed " As Clerk Dlcknun Finds It, Clerk of tbe Peace William Dickson is one of the largest growers in the neigh borhood of Wyoming. He wax In Wil mington to-day on business and was met on Market street by a reporter. Speaking of peaches, he said: "They are dead as the d—I, gnd there's no resurrection. That is their condition !>eyond quest ion,No far sa 1 know. don't think we will have either peaches or pears.
