There are heroes in private as well as pnblle life and not all the names re corded In the Hat of those who have died that, their fellowmen might be benefited, bave laid down their lives on the battle field, or under the eyes of a sympathizing and applauding public Nor are all the heroes recorded on those lists. There are many noble men and true heroes, who risk their health, perhaps lose their lives, for principal, the advancement of their profession, or the saving of life, the history of whose brave deeds are bnrled with them, bnt they are none the less heroes than those whose names have been snug in story or emblazoned on the pages of history. To thlB list an addition was made, when shortly before midnight last night Dr. George M. Doane laid down the burdens of this world and passed Into rest. The canes of death was diphtheria, tak-u from a patient whose life he was trying to save, and whom he was attend ing, despite the fact that he was him self unwell, and therefore a fit subject, for the disease. He was confined to his home since Sunday only, and Dr. John W. Mallin was bis attendant pbyeelan. The news of bis death and the circum stances attending It were received with sadneis by all who knew him, and especially by the members of the medl cal profession, by whom he was highly respected. Dr. Doane was 39 years of age and was a native of Barnstable, Mass He studied medicine at Hahnemann College In Philadelphia, graduating in 18 90 After practing for eighteen months in Whitemar. Mass , he removed In De cember, 1891, to this city.

HULBUBD, BARRETT AND SMITH Great Content Over Ministerial Deleaatea to the Cleveland General Confereuoa at Dover To-day—Dr. Corkran Came Very Near an Election aud Than Lost Ground. Special Dispatch to the Evening Journal. DorER, March 20.—The recent stories about clamor in the Wilmington Oanfer ence published in the Evknino Jouknal over the taottos of ambitions Dr. W. F Corkran, presiding elder of Salisbury district were fully veilficd this morn ing. In a contest that has been unparal lelled in Interest and political button holing, Dr. Oorkran was defeated for the General Conference delegation this morning, bnt he made Buob a strong fight that I conference adjourned until this afteruoon without electing the fonrth delegate. Rev. Walter E. Avery, who was trotted out by the anti Wlisonltes to oppose Dr, Cork ran, is gaining ground every minute. Conference began ballotttng for del* gates to General Conference shortly after II o'clock. Dr. Merritt Hnlburd was eleoted on firat ballot, receiving 101 votes; Rev. Alfred Smith won on the second, and Rev L. E. Barrett, D. D , on the third.

Wil liams, of Cannon, Del., In Dover district, is attending conference in a borrowed suit of clothes, as he lost all his belong ings last Monday by the burning of the churoh and parsonage. The churoh collections for missionary and other par poses, amounting to $143, were aUo burned In the fire, bnt the congregation wlil receive credit in the record for their benevolence The growing feeling In the Methodist Episcopal chnrch against unlimited Episcopal power and the desire to curtail that power in * measure are both Indi cated In resolutions which were Intro duced by Rev Vanghan S. Collins, of New,Castle,and sigutd by forty five of his ministerial brethren In the conference yesterday. The resolutions were made the special order for Friday morning Both the older and the yonnger members of the conference are represented lu the signers, so It seems likely the resolutions will pass without difficulty. The résolu tlons are: "No pastor bs appointed to a charge by a blehop without the concurrent vole of a majority of the presiding elders. "The annual conference thonld annu ally nominate the presiding elders "Oar delegates to the General Confer ence are hereby instrnoted to prepare a memorial embodying the above résolu tlons for presentation to that body ana by voice and vote recommend a ebaoge In the discipline to seoure the result desired." The Contest for Delegates. A coincidence in the present contest for delegates to the general conference and In the deliberation over appointments of preaobers by the bishop and his cabinet arises from the faot that the bishop and presiding elders are occupy ing the same suites of rooms at the Richardson Honse occupied by the leaders in the receut political battle between Higgiqs gud. Addlckg over the.Unlted States .senatorshlp. The election of fonr delegates to the general conference was made the special order of business after the disposal of thb Collins resolution!.

Qne.tton Raised Whether the Oltv Conn oil Can Impose a Tax on Auctioneer* and Restrict Licenses to Residents. On Janntrv 28. 1892, City Connell passed an ordinance entitled "an ordl nance to regulate auctions and auction eers." The first section reads: 'That any bona fid* resident of the olty of Wilmington may apply to thy clerk of Council for a license authorizing him to eell at pnblio auction anywhere within the corporate limita of the olty every species of property, and npeo the payment by him of the sum of $ 150 to the olty auditor for the use of the city. It shall be the duty of the said oleik and president of the Coun cil to Issne to the person so applying a proper license ther-fore, under the hand of t he said presid. • t, aud attested by the said olerk, tu coot u ue In force for one year from the da' » thereof, which said license may be annually renewed in like manner upon the payment of the turn aforesaid " The ordinance limits the auctioneer to ene assistant aud one auction room, aud prescribes a penalty of $39 for each and every offence, fixes his fees, etc. This ordinance took t iie piece of one passed November 13,1836,aud wblcbjaleo limited the ipDllcatlons to residents of the citr, and fixes the liceuse at $1.30 a year. During forty years the constitutionality of this ordinance has never been ques tioned and the license has been paid without a murmur, exoeot as to the amount of license which has frequently been denounced as an outrage. A few days ago George W Drake, who has an auction store at No. 9 East Fourth street, was taken before the Municipal Court on a charge of violating the ordl nance In selling without liceuse. He was represented by Walter H. Hayes, who set up a fight on the grounds that the orrluauoe was unconstitutional In the first place, because it discriminates in favor of residents of Wilmington, whereas the constitution of the United States expressly provides against any such discrimination. Secondly, that the amount fixed for the ltoanse makes It a power tax, and the Council has not the to levy a tax. This morning the case waa oallad before Judge Ball City Solicitor Harman at ouce moved U« dismissal, stating that this waa due to an error of the olty and that no costs should fall on the de fendant. In case the ordinance should be decided to be uuoonstltutlonal It la probable that numerous suite against the city for the recovery of sums paid during the past forty years for lloanaes will be brought THE BOX RECEIPTS ATTACHBD.

THE JURY IB NOW DELIBERATING Jndga Collen De 'vered the Charge Which, While Fair, Favors the Claims of Mrs. Seward—City Solicitor Harman Exceptad to Ihe Charge —Mlacellaneoni Coart limalaess. Judge Cullen charged the jury Ira nudlatoly after Superior Court met this morning. He said. In part, after reviewing the causes leading to the soit aud the evidence adduced daring the trial: "The law In this state relative to the liability of a municipal corporation such as the defendant In this case, with reference to negligence, by which an Injury may occnr, le so well settled that It Is hardly worth while to refer to the adjudicat'd cases and I will only state the results. It Is the duty of the Street and Sewer Department, noting under said corporation, having entire jurisdiction and control within the limits of said olty of the streets, squares, lanes, walks or alleys thereof, said ocntrol to extend from building line to building line,'to keep the same in good repair and oondt tlou. They are bound to exercise due care and dillgenoe, that no dangerous boles, obstiuottons, or anything whiah may oiuse Injury to p rsons shall exist In the Htreets, pavements, lanes or footways where the public has a right to travel night or dar. They are not bound for any injury aoornlng from the act of God, as washouts by sudden storm, provided they bave not bad a reasonable time to repair, bnt If, after a reasonable time aud notice they neglect, they are liable and should a defect exist const! luting danger In any street, footway, etc., and the same be not repaired in a reasonable time, the law presumes notice, and the corporation weuld be liable. A c immens urate degree of care and dillgenoe mast be used In all parts of the city In order to Insure the safety of the traveling publio. The olty ander Its charter having assumed the duties and liabilities therein imposed, our courts by along line of uniform deolslons, have rlearly defined what those duties aud liabilities are as we have stated, "You must be satisfied that the Injury occnrred ou a footway In the olty on whloh persons regularly passrd at the time of the Injury and was used as a public footway ; that Mary A Seward was using due care and diligence In pass Ing over said footway ; t (at the hole or excavation was dangeronB In Its charac ter and so remained for a month, aud providing the Irjurlesjcomplalned of wsre the necessary consequences resulting from stepping in said hole, and that the said Mary A Seward was, by the fall thus ooo tsloned, hart aud Id Jared. If Lhese facts be satisfactorily proved from the evldeuce produc'd In this case, your verdict should be for the plaintiffs, Inas mach as It establishes a clear case of negligence on the part of the city, "Bat, should yon be sattffied fron the evtdenca that Mary A Seward was not aslng das care and diligence, recklessly and carelessly, without proper caution fell Into this hole or exoavatlon, she was gnllty of contributory negligence and has no right to recover, It matters not as to the character or nature of the / plwa| no dangerous place, if the party eom plaining suffered no Injury, your verdict should be for the defendant. The person la ever bound to use all necessary care aud precaution to avoid danger, bnt In passing over yonr streets and sidewalks at nljht he jias a right to prestige that fcber* afe ho secret or hidden llaugeVg. '' We now çome to one other defense made In this case, arising by reason of a statute passed by the Legist* tnre of our state, April 21, 1889 This statute did not exist and has originated since the decisions have been made defin Ing the liabilities of the olty by reason of certain ibjuries caused to persoua by reason of the city's Degllgencs as laid down by the conrts. "No doubt the iutention was to relieve Again, If there was the city of liability which by the terms aud provisions of Its charter our courts hxd decided the city was liable; that is lo say, the iuteut of the act was to relieve the city from certain liabilities, which our courts say it bad assumed *' ,d W,S b0Un ? f ° r »' B"t Can w, so conitrne a statute, whloh la lu direct opposition to the original mean t0 whlih It Ü really a supplement, We are to oouitrue a ohirtar, the charter of the olty of Wilmington, not an aol of Assembly ; and In so doing, whether It be the oue or the other, the provisions of th* constitution If th.y contl,ot or .re Involved mußt be taken Into considéra tinn ^ guld , UB t0 , prop , r consl( | erat j on of this subject. 'Our constitution provides and re serves no right of power save to revoke a charter We consider the duties once imposed and Habllltise Incnrred by accepting and acting under au act of incorporation, cannot be divested, save tbe right to altar, or amend be In the constitution, and should an sot bn passed not having euch exception inserted the lucorporatore having accepted without eaoh reservations, having no 'right to claim th* benefit thereof. This position Is well settled. No decisions bave been cited In any way controverting the general doctrine, that parties ac ceptlng an set of Incorporation are bound sud held to Us provisions, unless there be » right to ebauge or alter expressly sat forth In Its previsions. "We therefore say to yon, gentlemen -of the jury, that this act of Assembly upon which the defense claims the jpl.lntlff has no right to recover, is, as f» r as this case is concerned, unconstl tutional and void, and presents no defense to this action, .-if t therefore, yon are satisfied from evidence tb»t the city, by its ageuts, caused sa)J fxoavatlon or hole Into which .Mrs. Seward stepped, and caused the in 1 jury b T digging the same, the defendant >» oIe ' r >y !lable ' 7**^ Yerdlot should be for the plaintiff without regard to tbe provision* of said act, inasmuch as tbe " aid act has no reference to cases of damages arising where the eame Is caused I ^ ^ act defendant. *'With reference to the damageeand aniount theroof in cane your Yardiot >hould be for the plaintiff, that la a jinpUer colaly and entirely within your (province. i--»souable and fair compensation as you 1 ir yur Bound judgment aud discretion 18 prop" »nd adequate bo cont You should v*i auch a pensate the plaintiff for loss and damait* sustained by reason of Inj ary.

B&YARD CÜKSURU TO-DAY. Partisan Action of the Hnua* Will Keaeh Its Culminating Point This Afternoon, Washington, March 20— It «11 agreed late yesterday by the leaders on both sides of the House that the vote on the resolutions censuring Ambassador Bayard for bis utterances at Boston, England, and Edinburgh, Scotland, should be taken at 2 o'clock to day The resolutions will bs adopted by a partisan majority. It is well understood that Mr. Bayard's personal standing Is not to be damaged, even though the soundness of bis judg ment may bs Impugned. Bnt as the resolutions of cenaurs do not go to the Senate end will never reach the Presi dent, they need not humiliate Mr. Bayard to eueb a degree at to call for hla realgnatftra or cause him discomfort. The Hones debate waa filled with politloal effects. Birrett, of Maasacbn setts, who oaused such a sensation last December by demanding Bayard's im peachment spoke for nearly an hour, Taft, of Ohio, a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, and Pearson, of North Carolina, one of the new Repnbll cans from the South, espeotaliy dis tinguished tbemaelvee far their ssslnlne utterances, while Grosvenor, of Ohio, defended the character of ex-MInleter Sohmek from an Implied attack unde by McCreary. Mr. Sulzer (Dam , N. Y.) enlivened the proceedings with soms personal re marks about the valor of Republicans who assailed Thomas F. Bayard when he was not present to defaud himself. He devoted moat of bla time to Mr. Gibson (Rep., Tenn.) displaying to tha Himes circular whloh be said waa sent out under Mr. Gibson'« frank, describing hla quali fications as a candidate and entitled: "Rally, Bovs, Once Again. Send Uibaou back to Gougress aud the country is saved." This lsd to a war of words bdtwsen the two man which lasted for home time. ' r 1 ' A. 1 HR. MITCHELL'S REPORT. The Auditor Report. Hi.
