The Board of Health held n special meeting last evening, tbe snbject under discussion being tbs Liebig nuisance. Tbe iojnnctlon issned by Chancellor Nicholson was served by Deputy 8heriff Ge rge Read and read to the board. Dr. J. P. Wales, president of tbe board, ex pressed an opinion that tbe aotion of the Liebig Company in procuring the injnuc tlon after the leniency shown was a piece of impudence, and asked if the works ware leaving off smallpox or yellow fever germs, whether the bands of the board wonld be tied. Dr Sbortlidge, who was preeent, pro duetd a tin kettle containing some fish caught in the Christiana which were lit erally saturated with oil aud unfit for nse. He said that if allowed to continue there would be no shad in the Delaware this Spring. City Solicitor Harman was present and decided to go to Dover aud have the chancellor bear the oase at an earlier date than fixed. Secretary Oolqnbonn read a petition signed by tbe officers and 220 employes of tbe Pusey aud Jones Company, asking tbe boaid to take Bteps immediately to abate the nuisance reoelved from Alfred D P-m'e and residents of New Castle and Newport, complaining abont the smell and the condition of tbe creek New Castle claim that their drinking water Is pollnted to tush an extent as to be unfit for use.

If tbe Board of Health declares a thing a nuisance ander the laws of tbls state, no court has the right to say whether It is a nnisance or not. He farther added that he was oognlzint of the smell, and that It was a nnisance and should bs abited.

Daring the Of the Natare of a Mass-meeting. Although designed by the Exchange as a birthday party, tbe dinner resolved Itself practically into a mass-meeting in favor of a road to tbe river, and every speaker made passing and favorable mention of this grrat wedge in the opening np of a greater Wilmington Prior to tbe speech making, President Hwayne read letters of regret from Uongre8sman Willis and President of the Pkilidelphia Exchange Charles Gilling ham. Following this he welcomed the members and their gnesta in a happy manne.* aud then intro duced Rsv Merritt Hulburd, 8. T. D,, of Grace M E. Church, who was greeted with a barst of applauie whioh spoke volumes for the respsot aud love In which he is held. Rev. Dr. Hulburd Speak*. Rev Dr Halbard expressed his sur prise at tha precedence given him over the mayor, whose remarks he confessed he had intended to make the text for bis speech. He congratulated himself on having been the guest of snch a goodly set of men, at snch a goodly banquet,and after telling a humorous story in his nneqntled style, said that he always liked to be among men who did things; be respected tbe doer rather than the theorist. The ease with which the doer performed hi* work had always been a mystery to him aud he cited an experience of bis in undertaking to emulate a black Btnlth making a horse nail. Contiuning he said. "While yon are not founders of empires, you ere bniiders of great cities and yonr monuments, like that of the great Christopher Wren, are to be seen around yon. The handseme structures in this city are among those monuments, and even She new post office is an example. I trust to see it completed in time for my friend, Colonel Moore, to get some use ont of it before he is succeeded by some good"—here he wa? interrupted by applause and laughter, which was repeated as be added, "Prohibitionist. Yon Interrupted me too scon." Advocated tbe Common Weal. Dr. Hnlburd then spoke of the cum monwealtb, ss expressed and embodied in the commnnlty in which he lived, and which be said could be surpassed by few in the elements which goto make np prosperity. The wondar sometimes ex pressed that big cities always have rivers rnuning by them was due to the fact that the river was there first, and al though Madame Shipley set her city bask a good ways from the Delaware it wonld get therj some time, and iron foundries and huge factories would bo erected which weald have astonished the fathers and will gratify tbe sons. Heeald: "Erery Wllmlngtonlan should bs ashamed if be is not interested enough in her welfaro and prosperity to forget self and jola In advancing the great common weal. The extent of the mann fectnring interests bere now astonl.-hes me. and I believe this to be only ooe drop before a shower never heard of before. We stand at the very head of navigation, on one of the fineit estuaries in the world, and if the man who have grown rich out of Wilmington wonld be content to put back bat a trill i of tbe money taken ont the city wonld thrive llko the bay tree " In conclusion he congratulated the organization on its membership, its ob sets and its work and bid It Odd speed in Its mission. Mayor J»A«rlsnn the River Roail. Mayor O. R Jeffcrie was ths nsxt speaker. He referred to the honor dona him and oongratnlated the exchange on Its good work. He said he fervently hoped that a ioaa to the river might not only mean that bnt might also mean streets, highways to mighty factorise and mills located ou the river front. "The argument mads, that certain landowners wonld be benefited by this road Is foolish" said be "No matter whioh way the c'ty grows some one owns the lend end rnnst be benefited. By extending the city to the river, an area wonld be opened for factories, etc , which would double the population In a few years. Edgar M Hoopes spoke of the Ameri esu ebarsoter of the Builders' Exchange, and seid that while in business the members were In sharp competition, when any qnesttou of bsuefit to the city arose they were united in one osnso. He advocated anytblug that wonld advance the prosperity of the city, and this conld be done In no better way than In cresting an avenue to the Delaware. To do this Wilmington needed enterprising men. T.it them go to work and be predicted that within ten years the population wocid exceed 100.000 The Work of Other Organizations. j William Lawton, president of tbe Industrial Improvement Co , related tbe work of ibat body In tbe past three years, and then turned to his favorite bobby, the river road H« Btid tbe com pany bad 109 acres of laud between tbe city and the river to give away to firms who were leoklng for locations, and already fonr lare« concerns were In commnnication. He said that coal oonld be laid down here cheaper than in Pkœiixvllle and this city conld be made the greatest iron osntre on the Atlantic seaboard, provided It was given a river front. Samuel H. BayntrJ, of the North Side Improvement Co, made a witty and excellent speech in which he said the Builder's Exchange onnld bring the road to the river If It would work along that line Wilmington's growth in the past century was shown by Alfred Gawthrnp who gave a concise history of the city since 1798. fall of interesting data H* believed not only in a road to tbe river, but iii street! there, and wonld like to see the foreign settlement over the river given a chance to get to Wilmington's markets; wonld like to see ocean steam ships stopping at the city's wharves, a thing that conld be accomplished by people sticking and pniiiug together. If proper inducements are held ant this city would soon become the greatest seaboard port and Philadelphia bat a suburb The Building Inspector Orate*. Billdlog Inep"Ctor L«wls T. Grubb, within a few days of 70 years old and one ef the organizers of the Exchange rpoke of his experience He advocated a road to the river aud wanted to sae numerous streets thiongh that territory "Wilmington wants a river front," said be, "to make It one of the greatest of tbe Atlantic *eabo»rd cities." Archie 8. Raed welcomel those present and congratulated the builders that they were of some nse in tbe world. He suggested that the members make themselves better acquainted with the rooms of tbe Exobaugu. William H Fou k, one of the oldest members, related tbe Incidents c>nnect*d with the fonndlug of tbe Exchange He seid that wheu an apprentice In 1850 he was brought in contact almost every day with Mark Bassatt, who then had a flour and feed store where the Evsnino Journal office now stands aud who owned a charter for a plank road to tbe river. Tbe speaker became enthused then with the Idea and was still as entbnstastio road then bean built Wilmington won d have had a population of 150,000, He thought the sooner the city got to the river ths better Alter Frank A Mitchell hid made a few appropriate remarks George W. McCanlley wai called upon. He too thongUt that ths city uetded a river front His father came to that conclusion In 1866 and had believed In it ever sincr. With it the city wonld quickly grow to 150,000 and become rich lu factories and industries Andrew Cary, of tbe Jackson and Sharp Company, and Richard Kelley then mads brief remarks and were followed by William Simmons, who said he hesitated about saying mach as It might be cited agalnet him later. He told of the work of tbe 8treet and Sewer Depertment and the lack of money and thought that unless the road to t.be river was built by private enterprise it would not materialize jaat yet. John N Carswell waa the last speaker and gave a brief sketch of the wealth, eta., of the city He said that a read to the river would b*st be reached by citizens chipping in and getting it Good byes were then said and the diners dispersed to their homes. He believed that bad the ANNIVERSARY MASS TO-DAY Celebration of Father McVanua'* Fourth Tear la the Mluletry.

A large THE LIEBIGCO.IN COURT A Suit for Violation of the City Nuisance Ordinance. INFORMATION AGAIN8T MANAGER Bat Hin Connection With the Comuany Wa* Not Proved- «luder llall Dltml»««« the Case- It Will Now Be Left tor the Chenoellor to Uoclde Other Municipal Court Caned. The Municipal Court room was filled this morning with interested parties aud spectators The first chapter in the endeavor to compel the Liebig Mauu facturing Company to abate the famous onion oil perfumes >hlch have been eo decided a uu'sancs ti Vilmington people sines the advent of < .o company at the old Walton and W bann Works, on the Cbrlsllaua, was opeutd up, the city ordinance relative to the establishment of a uulsar.ee within a mile of the city. Lewi* O. Vandegrlft represented tho Liebig Company and City Solicitor Her man looked out for tbe city. Tbe charge was brought against Frederick F. Ward, superintendent of works, aud a plea of not gnllty w as entered John J. Flanagan, residing at No. 1135 Jackson stie-t (lard for fifteen years engineer at tbe Delaware Pulp mills, said the stench from the Liebig works gave hi in pain in the lemples aud head, made hia eyes smart and sting, and aflected bis stomach. Lttucb in baskets hung In the entrent of air from the Liebig soon becomes unfit to eat. He smelled the ordor at 7 20 tbls morning. Samuel M Maunders, 17 years, at the Delaware Pulp Mills, said tbe stauch re semblés bad onions,aud aflected his held, eyes aud throat. Charles W. Pusey, of Pntey and Jones Company, had notlcsd the offsnsive smelt and had a pungent feeling or tast.e in throat. Never experienced it till the Liebig works came. Handel 0. Biddle, of the Pneey and Jonas Company, had eyes and uootiils affected by the stench. Joseph B Bond, chief of the Water Department, lived fer fifteen years in rear of woiks and had suffered from stench ever since the company oarae Ou pavera' occoslous he aud his family had been made 111 Alftel D. Poole testified to the steccb, and City Clerk W. P Morrison that, the company had never secured permission to operate the raotory. Should He Decided Hr Chancellor. Mr. Vandegrlft said he was surprised that the c'ty solicitor should bring this suit when it is alrraly in the Court of Chancery, and that that court should have sois control. If this company was doing something wrong it whs entitled to have this question settled in the highest tribunal. He argued that this was sim ply an action brought by the Board of Health which had already beeu enjoiued He olaitnea that until the Court of Chancery bad decided this matter no other court should take it up He further argued that the Liebig did nit institute a new business bat (.imply took t:p and carried ou the business of ths Wslton and Whanu Company. Ju Jgs Ball stated that tbe warrant bad beeu sworn ont by a private citizen auJ asked what eff-ct that would havs in the matter. Mr Vandegrlft argued that the Htate Legislature having given to the Braid of Health power to bring suits for violation of tbe law regatdlng public health precluded any citizen from bring ing similar salt aud that body alone should have power to decide aud punish snob vlolatloua And when the Board of Health decides anything a nuisance the Municipal Court has no power to take evldeace in the oas» Tue final reason was that there bad been no evidence that Frederick F Ward was the mtnager of the Liebig Company, named in tbe warraut. Mr Vaudergrlft stated that tbe news papers bad already argued the case thoroughly and to tbe disadvantage of the defendant company. He said that he was at one time a newspaper man aud did not, believe that such matters were properly to be discussed In the pubilo press. Mr. Harman argued that Mr. Ward was named In tbe information as ths representative of the company aud nuder the rule geverning partnerships, sod that the« spirit of the cede was followed Tnat the faltnr# to deny that the company had been brought Into court was a tacit acknowledgment that he W83 t he manager of the company. Judge Ball deciddd that there had been no proof of the connection of Mr. Ward with tbe oimpany and dismissed the case He also stated thattbo Board of Heal'h having taken action aud bean enjoined, he would hesitate to entertain any oharge brought In the Municipal Court nntii that question Is decided. Lae Merrts or '.Shockley, colored, charged with disorderly conduct, draw lug a knife on David Anderson and hitting him with a rake.
