TWO EVILS OF WINTER.

Celebration of Washington's Birthday By the Schools and Grand Army—Other Events About Town.' Spool al Correspondence Evening Journal. New Castle, Feb. 18 —There are two exigencies with the arrival of the storm, one of which might be remedied by City Connell, but the other must be mot bv an amended law on the statute books. Until something is doue in both exigencies the people will suffer from alarm and suspense. Since ax-State Treasurer William Herbert was active in City Council and the late Trustee Ferdinand Leokler re moved from New Castle, the town fire plugs have been sadly neglected and for more than a week they have been frozen tight. Should a tire occur anywhere In th# western part of the city, away from the river, a whole community would suffer in consequence of this neglect. Now that the weather has moderated it is t» be hoped that the pr»per committeemen of Connell will give this matter immediate attention, whether they deem It their duty or not The city has been marvellously free from fires of late, but should one break ont the excellent fire department now In service here wonld have to leave Its apparatus and form a bucket brigade from the nearest pump. Another alarming matter is the increase of vagrancy and backdoor begging that has been manifested since the recent snow storm. Every dey or two there is a large jail delivery from the "bum cell." These men, hiving served their sentence, ere turned out upon the streets of Newcastle to beg or steal They are without a penny, have not sufficient clothing and are unable to walk to Wilmington over the snow banks In their thin shoes. It seems that the people must suffer from this condition of things, as the only remedy Mayor Herbert could offer would be to keep hie policeman continually running In the penniless fellows as fast as they are released from prison.

The Attempt to Bring Ml»» Ming'* Murder er* to Justice Bring* Out a Peculiar State of Affaire That ExUt«d In the Hayward Family—The Mother a Listener. Minneapolis, Fob, 13.—In the trial of Harry Hayward for the murder of Miss Ging the state has presented all its strong testimony and expects to lie completely through today. This afternoon the defense will present its side, and than tor the first time the public will know just which ono of the linos of defense has boon decided upon. Tho state has fulfilled the promise made by Mr. Hall In the opening and baa proved on the stand all that is outlined to tho jury. It is a wonderful as well as an aw ful tala It reads more improbable than any of the dramatic writings of the must sensational French novelists. It is almost past buliof. Brother against brother, in deed, has it been for years in that family, and now perchance It Is a life for a life. Sitting there stolidly, unmoved, the mother of thoso two sous hoard the attor ney for the prisoner's opening accusation present tho foundation for laying the crime at the door of hoc firstborn. In that crowd, not too finely strung, uot too tenderly constituted, there was a tremor of horror. A crowd whloh had laughed gleefully at a proposition to tear a wom an 's bead off with an elevator was trans figured with disgust at the proposition of sacrificing ono son on the altar of family preference. The cross examination of A dry Hay ward brought out a fearful condition of affairs In tho Hayward family in their domestic relations. Adry is evidently in dignant at the course being pursued by the defense. He answers ail questions with a cynical smile ami an air of gratifi cation. The brothers are apparently pos sessed of a violent hatred for each other of long standing, '»'he scene In court Mon day between the mother and her two sons had a groat effect on Adry and had made his night sleepless. His eyes were dull and heavy. A Family flow Aired. Erwin began his questioning roughly and ashed Adry about tbe trouble there was between him and his father and Harry. "Wore you not crazy on Oot. 7?" he asked. "Well, as to that," replied Adry. "I'm not in a position to answer, " and he laugh ed ns tbo court ruled the quuslton out. With regard to the charge that he had embezzled money from bis father. Adry admitted that he had boon charged with doing so by both Hurry and his father, but ho had charged at the time that tho mon ey bad been stolen from his fiat by Harry for tbo purpose of fomenting trouble. On Oot. 7 ho had been requested by bis moth er to go to her apartments and talk tbs matter over. Tho interview was a stormy onu Hurry Hayward had continually said : "Why don't you give father hack the money?" Adry claimed that the books were straight nnd that Harry had the missing money. Mrs. Hayward was incensed at her elder son, nnd be turned to her with the retort, "Mother, If you think I'm dll honest, why did you raise such a litter of pups?" '.Then came threats of Harry that If Adry did not go out at onco he would knife him. later Harry told tho wit neon that his father was carrying a revolver and would shoot him on sight. "That was ell that over made trouble between my mother and myself," said Adry. "Don't shake your head, mother," he added, looking straight at Mrs. Hayward, who sat beside Harry. "It's all true, nnd you know It. I'm telling the truth.'' "Tell It I Tell It all!" cried the mother. "Leave nothing out. " Life InnurnDoe Agent* Te.tlfy, During Tuesday afternoon several life Insurance agents testified to conversations which Harry Hayward bad with them in regard to the issuance of policies When Gilbert told how ho had mat Harry in jewelry store, had asked Harry why he did not let him write a policy spoken of some time before, Harry hud told him that ho did not want any insurance, and then told him that ho was about to have a policy assigned to him. Following up the talk, Harry asked hi in If companies paid in coses of murder. He wanted to know if a company would pay If a person was burned In a building and the remains were so charred that they could not lie recognized. The agent In formed him that, as a rule, they would re qnire identification, although there had lioen cases of hotel fires where tho compa nies had paid when tbo persons were known to he in the building. This closed the testimony for tho day, which wa« practically all the Important testimony for the state, and paints tbe history of one tbo blackest crimes, if the state's story not broken by tho dofomo, in the history of the world. it at ill by ■ He the Hi* Punctuality H'n Fatal. .
