Th® Veteran« of th® Fourth Delaware Reel meut Liaten to Evidence end Com* par® Notea—Five Claimants Discovered. Last evening the veterans of the Fonrth Delaware Regiment held a meet ing in the rooms of DuPont Post. It was to discnss the the claims of Captain David E Buckingham to the special medal of honor which was recently awarded to him for bravery In swimming the Rowanty creek in Virginia, on February 6, 1805, and which honor is claimed by the friends of Captain 8 Rodmond Smith, for the genial United States commissioner. Captain Buckingham was summoned to appear, but did not, as be claimed that he had not been notified in time. Hla brother, Richard Buckingham, ap peared for him and olaimed that the only object for the meeting was to cause his brother to lose bis place as pension inspector in Washington. Sergeant Chambers who saw Bucking ham in the river also thought that was the object, but Captain Smith's friends emphatically denied this and said that the only object was to place honor where honor belongs, and not to deprive any others who crossed the stream from participating in the honor. The number of these seemed to be at least four or five. The discussion was pratty lively but no definite action was taken, and farther Investigation will be made at a meeting to be held In the next fortnight. REMOVING THE STAIN. A POLE WHO COULD NOT GO BACK TO HIS COUNTRY SUSPECTED. Hla Countrymen Had Pat Ulm Down es a Thief and He Sued Hla Defamera—A Case Where a Gorfd Name Was Deemed Better Than Cash. Last evening Magistrate Dale>'e office was oveiflowed with Browntown Poles, the entire settlement being present to bear the trial of Felix Lewoudowski and Frank KsBheweki, two of the colony, who had been arrested charged with defaming Frank Stochewlch. The case was a very peculiar one and illustrates the odd customs of this not very desir able element of the city's make up Last Snnday morning John Fratzsski had some $26 stolen from his house No one conld be definitely taxed with the theft, so the custom of the Poles, of sweating honesty, was resorted to. All of the male members of the colony went that same night.before Rev Father Leo, and swore that they didn't take the money,with the exception of Stochewlch, who wanted to go right away, as he intended to leave for his native land in the eTening. Because he would not go at the time agreed upon by the rest, his fellows set him down ae the guilty one, and after consultation, secured a warrant for hla arrest and thus prevented him from leaving the city. Stochewlch was mad. He couldn't go back home with a stain on bis character nor could he remain here. His only course was to stay and fight it out, so be bad Lewoudouski and K.shr -ski, who <vere mainly lnatrumental in his disgrace, arrested After hearing enough testimony to hang a regiment and untangling it suf ficiently to understand it. Magistrate Daley decided that Kaahewskl was guilty of defamlDg Stocbewich and fined him 25 cents and costs. The other fellow was dismissed. BURIAL OF A RAILROAD KAN. Remain, of F. W.

THE CHEMICAL WAS THERE, And the Flames Were Extinguished In Short Order and With Little Lou. That the addition of the new chemical engine to the local fire department was a wise move on the part of the members of the Washington Fire Company was demonstrated to even the most stubborn yesterday afternoon. Fire was discovered in tbe third story of the honse at tbe southwest corner of Second and Jefferson streets, occnpied by Henry Hofer, and an alarm sent In from box 24 The depart ment responded, and when the engines arrived tbe flames had gained consider able headway, and tbe roof was all ablaze. The chemical got there in short order, and before any water was turned on, the chemical was given a trial. The first tonch of the chemicals pnt ont the fire, and in a very brief time all daDger was passed Tbe honse was not flooded with water and the loss, which was confined to but one room and the roof, was trifling It will take but few such cases of handling fires, to save to property owners an amount greatly in excess of the cost of tbe chemical and Its maintenance At the fire at Second and Jefferson streets yesteiday afternoon, tbe Fame Fire Company laid a hose sud bad water on, but tbe blazs succumbed to the Rhemical's streams Tbe Fame was on hand, however, and ready for work.

A man died there two or three weeks ago- He left a small child, about 10 years old She will come in possession of about $100,000 in personal property. That money is invested. He left a sister as executrix to close the business andjalso a trustee. Under this bill this ex'een trlx can transfer the property, which consists of bonds, mortages, stocks and judgments, aud will not be compelled to collect this money and reinvest it If she has to call it in in twelve months or two years it will be a hardship to many persons. I have shown it to a lawyer aud he thinks it is a good bill. The commit tee also thinks so. " Mr. Hanby withdrew his objsotions and the bill passed. The obild In question is a daughter of the late Benjamin Fooks. Cloaed Seaton In Propped. Senator Fenlmore gave notice of a bill prohibiting the killing, trapping, selling or possessing any partridge, quail, pheasant, woodcock or rabbit before November 1, 1896, and making the gun nln g season begin on November 15 and end on December 31 of each year there after.

REMEDY BADLY NEEDED Cases Which Bother the Mu nicipal Court Every bay. A 8T0P SHOULD BE PUT TO THEM They Start From Petty Ouarrels and the Evidence Is Seldom Sufficient to Con vict and tho City Pays the Expense. Three of This Class Tried To-day. A greater part of the time of the Municipal Court Is spent In the trial of cases which amonnt to nothing and where the ' evidence Is Insufficient to conviot. These cases are almost entirely where the Israelite and colon d residents are concerned, and are genei.'ly the outcome of petty quarrels, and couflued to the lowest strata of those races The mlstrees of one Afro American has words with another colored woman or her man, and gets her face slapped She at once seeks the office of the clerk of the court, aud makes her story hard enough to secure a warrant, The offender is arrested and a host of witnesses are summoned. The day of trial comes off, and it is shown that there were mlttgatiug clr eumatances warranting the assault, if any was committed, and the case falls through. Tha costs cannot In justice be taxed on the détendant, the law does not make provision for the placing of it on the prosecuting witness, to the olty has to stand It. The judge and city solicitor have studied the ooLdltlon of affairs carefully but cannot seem to strike a remedy. Three of these cases cropped up In court this morning. The first was that of Andrew Young chsrged with assault on Della Wobbly Both are Mechanic street Japs, ana the row occurred on laet Wednesday evening after a danoe on Jones street. Andrew was talking to bis girl, Della chipped In, words followed, she cursed him and he slapped her face. Diemisaed. The second one was that of Nellie Mjers, colored, assault on Lizzie Harris This battle was pulled off last Friday evening Lizzie was passing No 111 Water street when Annie Johns oalled her over and then pasted her In the nose with a brick, minutes aud when she recovered found she ban been oat on the finger with a knife As Nellie had been beard to threaten to cut her hoart out and bathe in her gore, Lizzie jumped to the conclusion that she was the cutter. But she couldn't prove It and Nellie went free. A rather singular condition of affairs was developed by the judge, to quasiious by the cadi, Nellie said she was between 16 and 17 years of age, and had a room at No. 109 East Water street, which she occnpied with her brother Walter. The judge is too well posted to be blinded by a story of so potent thinness ana called Walter. He said that he worked in the post office and shared the room with his elster. When asked further, he said that Isaac Anderson also lived there and was his slater's The judge said It was a shame and dis grace and scored Walter for permitting sueh a condition of affaira to exist. The third case was that of David Fisher, assault on Annie Lowe Both are colored, and the row occurred on the dnmp over the Merket street bridge. Annie referred to Fiaher's children in a rather derogatory manner, and aa one of the witnesses stated, they "mlx-d up" In a row, and hard words were ex changed when Annie "ran up Into bis face" end Fisher pushed her ewey. Then Billy Lowe, her man, took a hand, and other bad names were exchanged, afier which "they dismissed." The judge did not think Fisher very much to blame, but decided that he should p*y t he costs, which amounted to about $5. He paid and went free. James Hornett, of Elkton, Md , came to town yesterday, and after transacting his business tried a sample of the rum which is current along the coaat. It disagreed with him end dumped him down an area way Offloer McDermott took him to the police station for safe keeping. When he appeared in the dock his nose looked as though he had stung himself. He hed a good defense and eo impressed the cadi that be was dis charged on payment Patrick Lvnoh, < arrested by Officer Lyons, suffering from a severe case of drunk He pleaded that he was not In the habit of drinking, but it didn't go, and be was fined $1 and costs.

Wbittredge, nf Baltimore, us the result of which Butter worth lost hie place as manager of Mr Wbittredge's farm, was concluded yesterday afternoon and this morning both sides summed np.

William Michael Byrne and E, G Bradford followed and Mr. Chandler occnpied a half hoar in concluding hli argument. The case was then sent to the jury, Judge Lore charging. The main grounds of the defense was that the letter of Conrow was warranted and was not actuated by malice. The Boy Will Stay In Baltimore. The little colored boy, who disappeared from 8t.
