The Team Was Frightened.
One of the teams belonging to the
Charles Warner Company, became fright
ened at an electric car on Front street
and ran away. It collided with
electric wire pole at Front and King
itreets tearing it down. The horses
were uninjured.

The Every Evening Hu Abject Fright
Written Over AU IU Pages.
"If you haven't whipped us yon have
scared us like everything," said a leading
Bancroft man to an Evening Journal
reporter this morning. "Yon have made
a plucky fight agalust Bancroft and It
has been a clean one. We did not think
that you would have the courage to
etand by your guns when the fight grew
hot, but we were fooled You will get
more credit for|fightlng than for running
"While I do notagree with the editorial
policy of the Evening Journal as re
gards Mr Bancroft, I certainly admire
the manner in which it hts made the
fight against him," said a Court House
official "It has fought him In a manly
way and will have nothing to be ashamed
of, no matter which way the tide of
battle turns."
"Samuel Bancroft, Jr.'s own paper,
the Every Evening, has abject fright
written on every page," said a Market
street merchant. "Every other column
basa Bancroft local; there is a two
colnmn Bancroft advertisement and
there Is over one column of matter which
Mr. Bryard, at the earnest solicitation of
the ring, said about Bancroft in his
speeches." _

The disappointments which have been
on so many occasions the lot of the faith

in this city, in the shape of speakers,
advertised but who did not "materialize,
bore fruit lost evening in the rather
meagre audience which gathered in the
Auditorium, to listen to Hon. Charles
Emory Smith, of the Philadelphia Press,
and ex minister to Russia. Many who
would have attended feared that be had
learned at the same time with Generals
Hawley and Beaver, that it would be
useless to waste eloquence in staunch old
Democratic Delaware, and would at the
last moment send regrets, and conse
queutly stayed at home It was a mas
terly adiress, from a Republican stand
point, and while the theme was the old
one of tariff and a eulogy of the McKin
ley bill, Mr, Smith fully upheld his
reputation as an eloquent and polished
The meeting was under the auspices of
the Young Men s Republican Club, and
the spacious hall was elaborately decor
ated gfor the occasion. Portraits of
Marvil, Willis and McKinley occupied
tho stage, while Lincoln, Graut, Arthur,
Harrison, Blaine and Garfield occupied
positions on the sides of ,tbe
room. Potted plants and ll.gs were on
the stage and along the side walls, and
rosettes of bunting occupied the rear of
the platform. The Y. M. R 0. had
seats on the platform, each member
wearing a handsome chrysanthemum in
his'button hole, the gift of Robert J
Hauby, who -mould like to represent this
county In the Senate.
President Churchman, of the Y. M. R
G , was chairman. He said that while
the Democratic party "had Imported
from the shores of Great Britain a gentle
man whom they bad styled an 'Ambassa
dor.'and 'the first citizen of Delaware,'
the Republican party, which had no
'Ambassador' or 'first citizen' had
brought a plain everyday minister, a
man who had represented the United
States in Russia " He then introduced
Charles Emory Smith, who spoke for two
hours on the tariff He took
several passages from Hon. Thomas
F, Bayard's address In the Opera
House and endeavored to dis
prove them The same difference of
opinion exists with all Republican
speakers He paid considerable atten
tion to William L Wilson's speech before
the London Chamber of Commerce and
made ans ver to some of the statements
made then by that gentleman He also
quoted from the English official Blue
Book, to show that the free trade policy
was responsible for all the ills with which
the business world has been troubled.
There was frequent applause, not at
the neatly turned arguments alone, but
mainly whenever the name of any man
prominent in the party was mentioned.
James Penne will, of Dover, was the
next speaker and be touched on local
issues to the extent of eulogizing the
candidates of the parly, and sharply
criticizing the action of,the Democratic
party In Kent county in trying to strike
the names of Republicans from the lists.
He urged everyone to vote for a consti
tutional convention, which he said was
of Republican parentage. He spoke for
about an hour.

St. Petersburg, Nov. 1.—The official
bulletin issued from Llvadla last evening
' His mojesty has taken little nourish
ment. The congestion of tho loft lung
continues. Breathing Is difficult, and tbu
pulse Is weak. The general weakness of
tho patient has greatly Increased. ''
A semiofficial telegram from Llvadla
reports that tho czar is much weaker, and
his pulse is feebler.
A letter received hero from Llvadia
says: "The czar la extremely weak ond
hardly able to walk, but ho has not aban
doned hope. He tries to reassure the
czarina, who is beside herself with grief
and anxiety.
"His majesty has frequent somnolent
fits, which bo does his utmost to
come. He often refuses medicine, and
tho sentries outside the quarters which ho
occupies hoar groanlnga during tho night.
"The population of Yalta warmly greet
Princess Alix when she drives out with
tho czarowltz."
r The czar suffers fits of suffocation.
Yesterday ho was unconscious for several
hours. Tho day was warm and tho sky
cloudless. Early in tho morning his maj
esty tried to read state dispatches, but
he was too weak. During his violent fits
of coughing particles of lung were brought
It was noticed that not one of the doc
tors in attendance upon the osar was seen

walking ln tno streets daily. Everybody
coming from Livadla Is assailed with
questions, but nobody is able to give
much news. Dr. Zacharln Is everywhere
blamed for his wrong diagnosis and for
allowing the disease to go so far before
taking his majesty to a warmer climate.
It Is alleged that there has been a serious
quarrel between Professor I^eyden and
Dr. Zacharln, the former reproaching his
colleague with aggravating tho czar's Ill
ness by his brutal frankness. Dr. Zaeh

Fire at SalleburT.
Salisbury, Md., Nov. !.—The first fire
for a long time happened here yesterday
in a section of Salisbury known as Cam
den. The fire destroyed the store and
dwelling-house of Jeff D, Porter. The
origin of the fire Is unknown. Tbe first
intlmltion of it was tbe heavy explosion
of a can of powder, which blew out tbe
front of the building. The fire company
responded as quickly as possibly, but
owing to the repairs going on at Camden
bridge the engines were compelled to
take a long route through the district
known as Frankfort. The store and
stock were Insured In tbe agency of Rider
& Qordy for $550' The dwelling and
furniture were insured with A. O. Toad
vine & Son for f600. These amounts
probably cover the loss. No damage waa
done to adjoining buildings.
