The reporter didn't deny It as Levy went to a case Iving on the centre table and lifted therefrom a dazzling cornet, apparently of solid gold, beautifully engraved and having pearl valves. Upon tbe bell and main tube were engraved tbe American flag, American eagle, Noah's dove, dragon heads and various other intricate designs, showing fine work manship.

Artistic Counterfeit Tickets and the Genuine Ones COMPARED UNDER A MICROSCOPE Forgerled In the Form of Lottery V TU krU That Are IlnlHioi; the Kxperlenrcd V>et«rtlveM Where the Counterfeit» dif fer From the Genuine. No such clever forgeries were ever psrpetrated upon Wilmiugtonians or any American citizens as are tbe lottery tickets that have been sent out this week purporting to be for tho July drawings of the Honduras Lottery Company. The frauds have been In the form of regularly eign.d aud sealed lottery tickets and tbe counterfeit is so similar to the genuine that it has deceived some of the bright est newspaper men In the Esst. This deception has resulted in their detection of tbe fraudulent scheme which these' counterfeiters were working upon sud laying the whole fraud at the doors of tbe Honduras Lottery Company, al though tbe latter has hern spending thousands of dollars to detect the counterfeiters. The Method of the Fraud. According to a Philadelphia newspaper of to day, the counterfeiters attempted to "roach" a reputable Philadelphian, and enclosed to him a handle of these forged tickets which, ' of coarse, were promptlv submitted by him to the news paper office. Here Is the Philadelphia letter. Honduham National* Lotteii y Co., (LouiHiaua ntato Lottery Co,) J. H. Lombard \ Co., (Tenoral Agent«. New Orleans, I*»-. June an, 1814. DearS iu: By references we Hud you ar« a perfectly responsible party, and whom *e ran »audy addreu» thl» confidential letter.

In order to get the venr best results from the Rivertlsement we wish you to sell one fifth of this ticket, which ts enclosed In a small envelope, to »»me well-known promi nent person, and keep the other fifth for > ourself. Enclosed you will also find 116 tickets, for welch you must remit 9100 .un ami have the re mittance reach us at least three days before the date of the drawing, otherw ise the num bers sent you will be canceled.

Very truly yours. J. II. Lomu a au, A* Co. This Utter came iu an express letter of formidable proposions, triply sealed with big buche« of wax, stamped "J. II. L. aud Co., general agents," on the back. It wan marked ou the outside to contain valuable property, and evidently came from Tamp«, Fla. It was handled ou its Journey "with cate" by the Southern Kxpreps Company, and the outside of the envelope bore the inscription; 'Use this envelope only for money remittance.'* The Larky Papers Well Wrapped, "Another heavy mtollla envelope on the inside farther protested the enclosures. A return envelope on which appeared the printed address of J. H. Lombard & Co., New Orleans, and marked in tjpe to bo forwarded to them by express, with de tailed instructions aa to the methods of expressing money, was in the package. This envelope was to be sealed and stitched together according to these Instructions before being entrusted to the express company's agents In a small, yellow envelope not la ser! bad at al: was enclosed tbe double ticket, which was guaranteed to be worth $8,000. Its number was 48.958, and It was one of the ordinary two fifths lithographed tickets, one folded over tbe other. The ticket was a very handsome affair with black letters showing on a bine background made up of elaborate scroll work. The signature of Paul Conrad, the president of the Honduras Company and ex-preshlent of the Louisiana State Com pany win attached, and it bora the forged Indorsement of John H. O'Connor, presi dent of the State National Bank, of New Orleans;*A. Baldwin, president of the New Orleans National Bank; Carl Kobn, president of the Union National Bask. of New Orleans, and George W. Nett, president of tbe Citizens' Bank, of Louisiana. As an additional guarantee their ap peared tbe forged name of General W. L. Cabei, ot Texas, and Colonel C. J. Villere. of Louisiana, who since the death nf General Beauregard aud General Early have supervised the lottery draw ings. to , Dire Duplicity Detected. In view of the esmpany's guarantee to the Philadelphia man that 48,955 would be drawn fiom tbe wheel as the winner of a $30,000 prize, the following state ment printed on the ticket and signed by General Cabell and Colonel Villere is of startling interest. We will personally supervise, manage aud control the drawings, and all the arrange-I un-ms therefore, wherein the number repro scntlng this ticket (Which appears on Its lace) may be drawn, end see that It Is conducted honestly, fairly and In good faith; and we au'liorize the use of this certificate on this ticket.

In a second package in four bun dles of twenty five tickets and one of fifteen tickets tbe 115 non prize winners mentioned in the Lombard tetter are also enclosed in tbe bulky msnilla envelope. A Wonderful Imitation of the Kent. An Evbkino Journal «porter made an examination of these remarkable e nnterfelts this afternoon which wero brought to the office. Nobody except tbe printer himself or some skilled coun terfeit detective could have doubted th© with the pennlne tickets for the July drawings, the forgery was detected in an instant. The Evbihmq Journal rep reset tative placed a genuine and a counterfeit ticket under the mlcrossope and instantly the difference was noted. First ho took the genuine. The geometrical lathe work on the lower border ef the face in a beautiful specimen of skillful preaa work,the effect being similar to that of white lace por traytd upon a ilch blue background In the signature of Mr. Conrad, the "1" In "Paul" la made with a narrow loop. Tb« large classification letter "O" is It pressed upon the left eud of tbs ticket by light faced psreU-1 lines Then on the back the last paragraph of reading matter I* printed In blue typo of very light face. The ticket ia a splendid specimen of artistic printing. I Here's the Contrast. None the less attractive- to the eye is tho forgery, which is alleged to have been sen» out from New Orleans. Iu the first place, however, the measure ments are different, more area appearing In the counterfeit. This alone ia a clue to the fraud sit:«, ail the genuine tickets ^tre printed from one dye and must, accordingly, be exact. Then the loop in the '.letter L of the word "Parti"! tbs (lathe work is "rough connected, the large letter "(1" appears heavy aud dark, as does also tbe reading matter on the back of the ticket. Altogether this fraud ia believed to be tbe most skillful ever perpetrated and tbe dye work of these counterfeiters would bad« the shrewdest "green goods" detectives iu the U. b. Govern ment employ.

CANAL PIKE AND YELLOW NEDS Fisk Have Now Become Plentiful In the Delaware Day Sea Haas and Weak fish at Ship John Light—Angling Down the Pculnsnln, Fishing daring tbn past week In Wil mtngtnu, rays the Philadelphia Ledger, has hud a groat boom, aud as a result anglers arc putting in full days at the sport Rock fish are plentiful in the Brandywine creek at Wilmington, and every day big catches are reported. The fish are unusually large The host time to fish for rock is lit the morning, before tbs sun Is blgb in the sky, or In the evening, just after tbe sun has set. Shrimp is principally used as bait. Pike and "yellow, uods" are making great sport for tbe anglers In the Dela ware aud Chesapeake canal. Borne of the pike are enormous in elm. On Monday James T. h'colt, of Wilmington, caught a pike that was 30J inches in length. This is the largest so far this season, except eue which was 83 inches long, and was caught early in the spring. The •'yellow neds" are more plentiful than In past seasons and furniah the fishermen great sport. Bssa are also runulug lu the canal at curtaiu places. They can only be caught by trolling for them In a host Tbe best place for bass In the «anal Is at a piece known as "The Wil lows," a short distance from Delaware City. Live minnow is the bast bait to use, while shrimp, minnow and grub worms are used for pike and "yallow neds. " Weak fish or sea trout are being caught lit large numbers of! the "stone pile" at tbs Delaware Breakwater. During the past week several Philadelphia parties have been down and met with good suc cess Tbe fish are of good size, consider ing the early reason, aud they take to bait readily. Baas are also being caught at the breakwater. The Delaware bay this year seems to be alive with fish of all kinds. Sturgeon fishing at Bower's Beach has fallen off some during the past two weeks, bat tbe men with the nets are still making fairly good catches. The drum fish, which were plentiful In the early part of tbe season, and many of which were cangbt iu the sturgeon nets, have almost disappeared.and only occasionally Is a stray one found in the big nets. It is believed that these fish have gone down the bay further, and possibly out lata the ocean. At Ship John Light a number of weak fish and tea baas are belug cangbt Several parties have vlalled Kent Island Narrows already this season In search o< rock fith, but all have re turned disappointed, for they could find nothing bn' small perch. It is too early I to visit, the Narrows for roch, as they do not bagln to ran there until the middle of August, and remain to tbe end of September. The narrows are in Kent county, on the Chssapeake bay, aud run between a email Island known as Kent Island, and the mala shore. The carrent Is very swift, and it Is a great play ground for tbe rook fish. Here they are caught, many of them weighing as high ss thirty pounds. The Fish Wardens of Maryland are keeping a careful eve on the Narrows this year, so that no fisher men with nets will get In aud spoil tbe fishing. _ NEW LEVY FOR WICOMICO COUNTY.

Sai.is&UKT, Md., June 29 —The levy for Wicomico county has been made and the tax rate reduced t wo ceuts under the rate for last year. The rate last year was 11,0 cents on the 100 dollars, state and connty. This year It Is 98 cants, with an extra appropriation for the schools of $1,500. Tbe public schools of Wicomico county now get $10,500 from the comity commissioners. Tbe taxable basis of the county has been In creased this year over $150,000, making tbe basis for tbe whole county $4,543 - 100 The rale for county purposes will be d(li cents on tbe $100, which will give $-'!(!,458 45 for county purposes.

Wicomico is the stronghold of democracy m tbe first district, aud abould tbe leaders decide to "go gunning" on elec tion day and remain away from the polep, it would b* bad for the Democratic nominees of tha first district. A Way of Getting Hat*. The river boatmen secure their head covering in a novel and cheap way, says the Philadelphia Record. It is a serious offense for one of this class to purchase a bat at any sum. All that Is neoesnary to do Is to pall around the early morning excursion steamboats and belt for hats blown overboard wht-s the vessel catches lee mid stream brmzss In ^the esriy summer straw bats go by tbe board, while later iu'lba season derbys can be secured. The steamboat Republic and the Wilmington boats furnish tbe best headgear. Excursion to Mesbaiuluy Falla. West Presbyterian and St Paul's M. E.
