Dover, March "9 —The fight over the
inter-state boundary line bas been car
ried to the Geueral Assembly. B*pre
eentative Walker, of Mill Creek hundred,
has introduced the following bill in tbe
House :
"Whereas, tho General Assembly of
the State of Delaware by an act passed
at Dover April 25, 1889, entitled 'An
act in relation to the boundary line
between the State of Delaware and tbe
commonwealth of Pennsylvania,' did
appoint Hon Thomas F Biyard. Hon
B L. Lewis and Hun John H Hofftoker,
commissioner« ou the part of the 8 ate
of Delaware to act in conjunction with a
similar commission from the common
wealth of Pennsylvania to examine,
survey and re establish the boundary
line separating this state irom the
commonwealth of Pennsylvania
"Aud Whereas, When said boundary
line should, pursuant, to the provisions
of said act, be thus fixed, re-established
aud relocated. It was thereby made the
duty of said commissioner«, acting in
conjunction with the commissioners
aforesaid, by and on behalf of the com
monwealtb of Pennsylvania, to mark its
location by the erection of enduring
monuments and acting iu conjunction as
aforesaid to make a detailed report iu
duplicate of tbeir operations, which said
report executed in duplicate as afore
said, should, together with tbe field
notes aud surveys, descriptions of mouu
meut«, maps and other items of interest,
connected with said work, be signed in
duplicate by eaeli of said ccmailstionert
and by the civil engineers emp'oyed iu
said work; one of said duplicates, to
gether with the field notes, to be taken
ty tbe commissioners appointed by and
on bshaif of the commonwealth of
Pennsylvania, and the other of said
duplicates, together with the field notes,
etc , to be taken by tbe commissioners
appointed by and on behalf of the State
ot Delaware, aud by said last mentioned
commissioners to be recorded In the
recotder's office for New Castle county,
State of Delawste, and after being so
recorded, to be forwarded to end filed in
tbe office of t he secretary of state of the
State of Delaware and by h in recorded
and tiled and carefully preserved iu his
office as are other official documents
deposited by law in said office.
"And Whereas, The divisional line
between the State of Delaware and the
commonwealth of Pennsylvania Is tbe
circular line surveyed and' marked 1701
under a warrant issued by William
Pena In pursuance of tbe feoffment of the
Duke of York, dated August 24, 1082, as
the tim« has been held, occupied and
recngr.izsd by tbe said states respectively
ever since lhat date
"And Whereas, It appears that said
commissioners, claiming to act under the
duty Imposed as aforesaid, located and
fixed a line by the erection of
monuments for the separation of this
state from the commonwealth of Penn
sylvania as shown by (heir report,
n corded in the recorder's office for Ne*
Castle comity auu filed in tbe office of
the secretary of state as aforesaid, not
being or corresponding with the «aid
divisional circular line as surveyed aud
mat kid In 1701 and as the same has been
held, occupied and recognized by said
states respectively ever since that time
"Therefore, Be it enacted bv the
öenata and House of Representatives of
tbe 8tate of Delaware in General Assem
bly met :
"Section 1 That the boundary line
between this state and tbe common
wealth of Pennsylvania, is declared tobe
the circular line surveyed and marked in
1701 under a warrant issued by William
j Penn in pursuance cf the feclTment of
I the Duke of York, dated August 24, 1682,
I as the same has been held, occupied aud
I recognized by the said states respectively
ever since that date
"Section 2.—Tbat the line fixed and
located by sneb commissioners, as shown
in said report, is not and shall not be
considered or taken to be the boundary
line between this state and the common
wealth of Pennsylvania, nor shall said
report or auy of said monuments or
uurveys, descriptions or maps be evidence
of said boundary line."
Tne bill Is accompanied by a petition
which sets forth at length the matters
contained in the preamble, and concludes
by Bsjiug:
"Tbat tbe line as arbitrarily marked
by said commissioners, if confirmed, will
change tbe domicile and teiidences of
many cilizens of the State of Delaware
from this state to the commonwealth of
Pennsylvania, thereby subjecting them
to the laws, taxes, schools and other
public institutions of the cnmmouweaitu
of Pennsylvania, and causing them great
inconvenience, ti jiny and damage.
"Your petitioners, therefore, pray that
the line fixed and located by said com
missioneie, as shown in their report, be
declared not to ho, and that the same
shall not be considered or taken to bn the
boundary line between this state and the
commonwealth of Pennsylvania; aud tbat
auld report and the monuments, surveys,
desctiptlons and maps, shall not be
evidence of said boundary line; and that
tbe bonndary Hue of this stale and the
commonwealth of Pennsylvania shall be
declared to he the circulai surveyed and
marked iu 1701, under warrant issued by
William P«un la pursuance of the
feoff ment of the Duke of York, dated
August 24, 1682, as the same lias been
held, occupied and recognlzjd by said
states respectively ever since that time;
and that tbe governor bs authorized to
appoint three competent persons as com
missioners representing this state, who
shall he authorized to set tn conjunction
with a similar commission from tbe
commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to re
survey, restore,!e establish and mark tbe
bonndary line separating this state from
the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, ea
said boundary line has been h«id,occupied
gnd recognized by ee'd states respectively
ever since the year 1701, and that au MS
or acta of the General Assembly may be
parsed, according to the prayer of your
petitioners "

as he baa not yet received it.
Through the Easy Fart.
The Houso passed the Senate bill to
incorporate Vigilant Connell, No. It), Jr
O U A M. T he House bill to transfer
the farm of Robert Arnold from tchonl
district No 17 to school district No 78,
in Sussex county, also paseed the lower
House.lt will not be the fault oft he House
if there is not a rednettou in the number
of officers of the Wilmington Fountain
Society. It passed tbe bill redt ting the
number of vice-presidents from three to
oneaodlhs number of directors from
twenty-four to seven.
The Unlucky Number.
The House killed the Seuate bill to
incorporate the Hibernia Blowing Com
pany. The objection to it was that Its
powers were too sweeping Thirteen
members voted against It aud fire for it.
Limited to Bli Hundred.
The House pasted tbs House bill to
extend fer two years the terms of the
trustees apoointed to sell the old alms
house property in New Castle county,
with amendments fixing the compensa
Mon of each trustee at $609. The bill
further provides that tbe money which
is now or may hereafter be inthe bands
of the trustees shall be applied exclu
siveiy to the rrdemption of the bouds on
the new almshouse.
They Want a Supplement.
The incorporators of the Newark
Real Estate Company are not satisfied
with their charter which was granted on
Febiuary 9, 1895 They have sent to
Representative Walker a supplement
which is as follows;
"That it shall bs lawful for the dlreo
tors of said corporation to divide among
the stockholders thereof, from time to
lime, the proceeds of the sale of any
real or personal properly of tbe corpora
tlon and to divide, withdraw or pay to
tbe stockholders, from time to time, any
part or all of the capital of said corpora
tion, thereby reducing the capital
stock of Baid corporation, provided,
howover, that all of said pay
ment shall be endorse! on the cer
tlficates of stock of said corporation."

chises or privileges which it. may acquire
Capital stock, $11)0 000, with power to
increase. The prmoipal office shall bs

Not a Vota Against It.
If Senator Hanby does not feel com
plimented he ought to, for his bill iu
relation to the rosds and highway« of
Brandywine hundred passed the Sana's
without a diet anting vote. It Wes quite
amusing, too. Senator Pierce reported
the b 11 favorably, and, as soon as be did
so. Speaker Watson calltd him to tbe
chair and went on the floor, taking a
seat in the back part of the room near
Senator Records, with whom be ex
changed a few worts. This looked like
a fight against the bill and Senator
H yjby grew nervous Tbe first seotion
was read and Speaker Watson arose
aud asked for an explanation as to tbe
t»x levy. Senator Hanby explained and
then, as the reading proceeded, walked
over, sat down between Speaker Watson
and Senator Harrington and began
bnzzlng away to dispel tbeir donbts.
Speaker Watson left him. took s chair In
front of tbe desk of tbe Evening Jour
nal correepondent, saying in a stage
whisper tbai ho wanted to get away
from the talking as it confused him.
The correspondent reached iu his desk,
took a printed copy of the bill from his
scrap book and handed it to the speaker
who followed the reading word by word
and line by line This betokened
opposition of the first magnitude, aud
the Brandywine senator's brow began to
send cut little globules of perspiration.

Dovkh, March 29—Two ballots ware
taken again to-day for United Btates

plimentary voles, which, however, do
not materially chalige tbe situation. Tbe
most significant feature Is that one of
the Addlcks men make a break in his
hitherto firm rauks.
This is how the members voted :
First ballot—Rldgeiy, 9; Mtjgey 4; Ad
dicks, 4: Richards, 6; Higgins, 1 ; H A.
Rtchardscu, 1; James Penne* ill, 1; Tun
nel), 1.
R presenlattve Morgan, of the Addloks
six, went ever to Pennewlli. The Gas
King loBt bis other vote through tbe
absence or pairing of Messrs. Ball, Davis
and Townsend. Mr. Money voted for
Richardson and Representative Mustard
for Tunnell.
Tbe second ballot was like tbe first,
with the exception of Mr. Msstacd's
vole. The Lewes man called the name
of John G. Gray, formerly superintend
ent of schools of Sussex county.
Representative Morgan's break has
somewhat, demoralized the Addicks
forces, although It was not entirely un
expected. He is known to have weakened
on the gai king.
