The more conservative members be lieve in letting matters remain as they L are. Mrs J Frank Ball is one of the most pronounced opponents of Humane of Society control To the Members 8 P. C C. and S P. C A "At a meeting of the members of the s. P C C. and 8 . P. C. A about Febru ary 20, 1893, a resolution was adopted to merge both societies into one corporate body, to be named The Humane Society of Delaware. Thi 9 committee, on closer examination, fonnd some practical legal difficulties iu the way, and made a re port to the jeint meettng of the societies held April 3 1894 explaining these difficulties, and stating that upon a suggestion to the committee, it had CBU g ed a charter to be obtained for an association to be called The Humane Association of Delaware. The plan suggested for carrving into operation thlB charter, which ' was !u lieu of the proposed merger, was about as follows: "That the membership of the said association should consist of the repre 8e utative societies as entities, and its staff of officers should properly be com posed of the same pereous as held cor responding offices in the organization of 1 - . a. u t ie ! w0 societies, in order that the meeting of the board of managers of Tbe Humane Association, by being composed practically of the same persons who were already managers of the two societies, should transact the business pertaining to tb® varions departments of humane work 0 f the state, aud that the central super vising body thus created should be able lo direct all branches of such work, thereby saving time and probable expense t0 ''ThethM C ry V of?he scheme was stated î?

The main object suggested of coming together as members of a com mon association was to obtain the ad vantages accruing from confederation and unification of work, aud slmplifica tion of mausgemeut Any new societies formed in the state hereafter might come in aud join as members of the associa tion in the same manner as those »1 The general localiza — pWpBI— ready existing.

OlS sympathy with the work " The same dues as now would still he , ,.A .

"Such in general outline is the matter for the consideration of each member, which Is to be acted upon at a special meeting of the societies, to be held on Tuesday, the 22nd instant, at 3 o'clock p, m., and it is desirable, by reason of the importance of tho subject, that yon should be present.

I.awjere Claim, llelng In Pottstown, Prevent the Proper Presentation of the Defense * H Is "The terms of court that I have at tended sluce this period of distress and bard times have been marked by such a falliug off of crime of every aort that it is noticed by everyone, more particularly ky me ln the duties of the office of at toruey-general," remarked Mr. Nichol son to an Evrnino Journal reporter shortly before court reconvened this morning. "The reason generally as signed for It seeniH to me to be the correct one—that Is, the lack of money to spend lu drluk It Is a very Interest ing but to me an unexpected result, because I heard on all Biles, when the hard times came on, the prediction that I would have an immense amount of crime to deal with while the depression lasted." The particular business which brought he genial attorney getieral fo town to day was to appear before the Court of Iyer and Terminer as the repiesentatlve of the state in the capital cise against Michael Faina, the Italiau who murdered his countryman. Carlo Ituva, ln an Italiau,restaurant on lower Market street, several weeks ago Court met at 10 o'clock, with Chief Justice Lore, and Associate Judges Cnl leu and Marvel on the bench. The court ordered Crier Smith to optu the Courts of Oyer and Terminer, General Sessions and the Superior Court. The petit jury and the additional jnry summoned to try Faina, were called. There was only one absentee. In the case of Johu Fushell vs. the J. Morton Poole Compxny atfitavit was filed asking for a rule for security for costs or non suit upon the plaintiff, he being a non resident. nude retui nable ou Thursday of next week. The case is calendared for May 26, The rule was granted and Fulim Marched lut» Cnurt.| At the conclusiou of these prelimina ries Faina was marched into court be tween two tipstaves aud took hia aeat In the box. His sallow face wore a care worn expression aud his black bair and moustache probably had a few additional gray hairs in them, as he has been the prey of great anxiety ever since be com mitted tbe crime. He wore a dark blue suit, light negligee shirt arid red neck tie He was represented by William 8 . Hilies aud William M Byrne Chief Justice Lore—"Arraign the prisoner." Mr Hilles— "If your honor please, tbe prisoner does not understand tbe English language sufficient ly to understand tbe Indictment. 1 would suggest that some one interpret It to him. Mr. Byrne aud myself represent the prisoner." Patrolman Carmine DiMare was called and took hia statiou beside the box Clerk of the Peace Biggs also walked aronnd to the box and stationed himself on the other aide Chief Justice Lore rapped the desk sharply with the gavel, and said: "Gen tlemen, entire silence must be preserved while tbe prisoner ia being arraigned. There must be no conversation." Clerk of the Peacs Biggs — "Michael Faina, hold upyour right band." Tbe trembling prisoner did so, and, sentence by sentence the clerk read the lengthy document, and, sentence by sen tence it «as interpreted Before the con clusion of the interpretation the prisoner was In tears and was trembling though afflicted with pal9y. Clerk Biggs—"What say you, Michael Faina, are yon guilty or not guilty?" "Not guilty.'' . "How will you be tried?" "By God and my country," was tbe faltering reply. "May God send you a safe deliverance." The prisoner resumed bis seat aud barst luto sobs, which continued after he had been marched back to bla cell, was badly frightened and tbe impressive preliminaries did not serve to allay bla fears. 11 - Three Material Witnesses. William Michael Byrne, on behalf of the prisoner, asked for a continuance until tbe next term, owing to the ab sence of material witnesses He read an affidavit of the prisoner, which set forth that there were two material witnesses ln Philadelphia and one in Pottstown That they could not be brought here this term, bat prom ised to be present next term. He ex pected to prove by them that. Ruva assaulted him aDO made au effort to shoot him, whereupon he acted iu self defense. The court asked if subpoenas had been issued for the witnesses. Tbe reply was that they had not, as tbe mau was not arraigned until this morning Chief Justice—"Yon must first take out your subpoenas and let them be re turned non est." Mr. Hilles— "They could not be issued until there was a case in court. We will Issue our subpueias this morning, and ss soon as they are returned non eat we will make our application. The wit nesses have gone ont of the state since the occurrence. The witnei-ses for the state having been arrested they supposed they would be arreBted too. As soon as we could assure them that they would not be arrested they said they would come. We have the man here this morning who saw the witnesses He stated positively that they would come here at the next term of court, otherwise we would be very glad to try the case at this term court. Tlie Attorney-General Takee a Hand. Attorney General Nicholson—"I think it is my duty to the state, and that it of prime Importance that every oppor tuuity of defense be given. It is equally of prime importance, that there should be uo miscarriage of justice ou kccouut of unnecessary delay. As a result our investigation, there is now here every human being that was present the commission of the homicide and those whose names or whereabouts bave been able to hear about in any way who were near or present at the time or during the hour preceding the crime. We have also made diligent quiry of tbe Italians of this place and those who were in t hat neighborhood to the ptesence of those whose names contained In that affidavit. and none of them know anything about them or know of them being In the state statement set forth in the affidavit is made by the prisoner and his counsel know nothing of the truthfulness or falsity of it." The Italian Names Were Not Known The Ellies: "I only have this to say, that as far as the names of these witnesses are con cerned, the Italian names were not known to me. How oar friend has as certained that they are not known here I do not know." Attorney-General Nicholson — "We have ascertalutd sluce the affidavit was read ."
