FAHEY MAKES
A PROPOSITION
At the afternoon session of Levy
Court, yesterday the Seventh street
briJge matter was again taken up
with Patrick Fahey Although no
definato action was taken Mr. Fahev
made a proposition for final settle
ment of his bill. His claim is for $25,
000, the contract price, and $5,308,9!)
for extras, including the buildings of
approaches. He already has received
$17,900 on account. He proposed that
the members of the court ascertain
from bills and vouchers the ejcact
cost of labor and material on the
bridge, which they allow him, with
fifteen or ten per cent, additional as
his own profits.
The court when it convened in the
afternoon resolved itself into a com
mittee of the whole to continue the
discussion which was stated at tlie
morning session. Mr. Fahey 6ald he
did uot know what to suggest to the
court to settle his bill except that tho
contracts be thrown out, and that
the court pay him the cost of labor
and material in tho construction ot'
the bridge, with a reasonable per
centage of profit fur himself, lie
said he would present the bills for all
the material and labor on the bridge
properly vouched for or supported by
aflidavits, and suggested that the
court allow him those amounts, with
15 per cent, added, or is the court
considered that amount excessive, to
grant him 10 per cent, above tlie
cost of labor and material. Mr.
Willittsasked Mr. Fahey if lie would
be satisfied if the court should allow
him the cost of the structure as es
timated by an expert who might be
employed by the county.
Sir. Fahey said ho was willing to
have tlie court employ an expert to
examin, the structure, but he would
object to having an expert examine
the bridge to try to estimate its cost
asit would be unfair to him. lie Laid
that prices might have been higher
for material, then, than they are
Besides there might have been rain
on some days, aud his material might
have been washed away, and no ex
pert could estimate tins. Besides he
bought a lot of piling which were use
less after a change was made in the
approaches, lie made no charge for
this. Mr. Megginson asked Mr. Fah
ey if he wi u d be willing for an exper^
lo estimate the cost or the bridge
and he replied that he won Id not. He
then repeated his previous proposi
tion for the court to allow him lo or
10 per cent, above the cost of labor
and material. The matter
brought to a close by Chairman Wil
litts informing Mr. Fahey ' that the
court will take up tlie matter later
for consideration.

President Willitts called in John
I*. Donahue, one of the collectors of
tlie Adams tax, for a statement as lo
his intentions regarding the distri
bution of the tax money he has col
lected. Mr. Willitts remarked that
this is the first tlie Levy Court, as
present constituted, had called
Collector Donahue, lie said that
about $12,000 had been refunded
through tlie Levy Court, and did not
sec any reason why the same method
should not be followed in Wilmington
Collector Donahue saidlh.ro is a
suit pending in the upper court, and
rs soon as it is disposed of his pur
pose to settle the whole matter and
refund tlie money he lias collected,
lie also said lie had peen advised by
his counsel to pay the taxes directly
back to the taxpayers. He said that
one of the parties that had paid
Adam tax money had said to him
when tlie old Levy Court was in office
For God's sake don't iet the Levy
Court get their hands on that tax
money.
Mr. Donahoe said lie had col
lected in the neighborhood ol $12,
000 and had made no disburse
ments out of it except what had
been authorized by the Levy Court.
He said he did uot wish to be re
garded as au obstructionist. Chair
man Willitts said he wished it un

Former Chief of Police Eugene
Massey presented three bills to the
court. One was for tlie commit
ment and transportation of prison
ers from August 1 to December 31,
amounting to $235.80. The others
were for the carfare of 260 prison

The court in the afternoon de

Dams Threaten To Give Way.
Laurel, Del., April 8.—Tlie
storm which began twelve hours
ago has caused much damage.
The millponds are so swollen that
the dams in many places are
threatening to give away,
ponds are arranged one above an
other, and should one break above
all the rest arc sure to follow.
Twilley's pond, at this place, is
the end of the drain, and the dam
is now under an awful strain,
although the flood gates are all
up. The water is rushing through
in a mighty torrent, and should
the dam break a large loss of
property will be the result.
Farmers cannot tilt the ground
in the lower section, as in many
cases it is completely submerged.
Early vegetables have suffered
greatly, especially peas and white
potatoes, and more of these crops
have been planted this year than
ever before. Wheat also is badly
damaged, farmers claiming there
will not be more than half the
usual yield in some sections.
