The continued high prices, have saved some of the men from bankruptcy. As a whole it has been the poorest season experienced for mauy years. Noue of the men are able to ex plain wily shad are deserting the Delaware River. Some ascribe it to the stocking with young shad of the rivers ot the country by the Fish Commission, which is said t.o operate in a general distribution ot adult shad In the streama instead of confining them to comparatively rivers, as formerly. Five years ago the number of shad, in pounds, caught by Salem County fishermen, a moulded to 6,369,500; the uext year 6,759,000 pounds were caught.

D., rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, during his sermon yester day morning, referred to Judas Iscariot, who betrayed the Savior, as a disappointed office seeker. Dr. Wells preached an excellent Sermon, and spoke of the work of the Savior and to the fact that li is life and work was considered a failure by the ..people of his lime. They supposed that he intended to form a kingdom upon this earth and to become a temporal king. They could not understand why, with his known power, ho did not assume the office, and his followers insisted upon him so doing. When he did not do so, but allowed him self to be crucified they looked upon his life as a failure. They failed to appreciate and understand his true mission. Dr. Wells, said that in his opinion, Judao was a disappointed office seeker. He was following" the Savior in Ihe hope that Christ would form a temporal kingdom and he would get an office. When lie saw that the Savior did not do ihia he ■as because he and think supposed that it did not have the power ing" it no use to follow him longer, betrayed him to those who were in power. Mr. Wells quoted the Bible to show that manv were ot the same opinion as Judas, that Christ was to form a Kingdom upon this earth and failed to see his true mission. A fine word picture of the Savior upon the crois, glory which was reflected in his face, and how the soldiers whose duty it had been to crucify him, and who were hardoned to sucli scenes, sat and watched his face as he hung upon the cross. They did not look at the figures which hung beside him or at the dark cross itseif, but only at his face. The preacher then alluded to tlie gospel of love, which was taught bv the Savior, the love which ex itself in the service for was drawn of the presses others and i9 not centered in sell.

A question that is being asked at the presnet time is what have the ltepublicans to gain in this coming campaign,? Republicans who have worked tor the party for many years when It cost a man his life to be one to say we want tbe State. We want to keep it out of the gerrymandering I) einocrats, who by their laws dis fransebised ltepublicans. The Sussex Itepublican of which Collector of Port Housten is Editor says: Will some of these wiseacres wlio are writing editorials proclaim ing that tho Union Republicans will not nominate Dr. Ball for Congress please stale their objection and their reasons for opposiug his renomina liou? That he lias made a good Kep roscntatlve not one of tlicmxan deny lie has done more for tlie State and secured more concessions fur our people than any man who has repre sented this State in the Huuse," in the same length ot time. If he has been able to do so much in his first session, it must he admitted that with the experience gained nod the accquaintance established, he will lie able to do still more if returned. lie is entitled to It, It is an unwritten law in both political parties In this State to re-nominatc the member of Congress, and this practice has not been departod from, and why sho uld it this time? It will not be. Wo know Addicks isopposed to Ball. lie has said so. lie knows Ball is oppos ed to him and has constantly main tsined that opposition throughout this tight. The Regular Republicans are sat isfied with his course and they lie live it to be for the host interest of the State to send him back. They will nominate him and do all in their power to elect him, If Addicks for personal reasons, which with him arc always paramount, refuses to permit his party to nominato Dr. Bali, tile consequent defeat of the Republican party because of two tickets and the responsibility will rest with Addicks, who with li is fourteen members of the Legislature all he can possibly elect will bemerely spectators in the Halls of llie Legis lature, when tho United States Sen ators are elecled. and Addicks am bitious will he buried beyond rcssur rcclion. If tlie Addicks crowd are courting this fate, Pile Regulars will he able to put up with it. if there are two Slate tickets, there will not he a Republican nom for a State or County olllce inee elected. If Addicks wishes to carry his opposition to Congressman Jlall this far, the Regulars can stand it if he can, in Sussex county there will be elected next election In this county a Clerk of the l'eace to succeed Jame3 Wright; a Register of Wills to suc ceed W.

Congress man, two senators, state treasurer and state auditor. Have tlie Republicans anything lo gain this fall by coming together? Republicans of Delaware, ask your self a plain question FWhat arc we doing to help win tho day for our grand old party? Are wo allowing it to drift away and let the Democrats to get in control. Let tho Republi cans uf this State tell tho leaders that they must have one ticket and that all must work for its success office holders favored by the Presi dent have no right to say, "If they nominate Ri I so and-sowo will knife him," Bury such sayings out of sight and criminate such thoughts. Where did these people ever hear our rathers express themselves in such a manner, road The Tlicn one ticket, everyone invited and party success, must be the rallying cry now and forever. THE OSSIFIED MAN DEAD. New York, J uue 9. —In keeping with the secrecy which surrounded all hia business operations in life news of the death of Wilfon W. Dunlap of 301 Wect Twenty-first street was kept from his employees until the filing of J his will gives the estate of the dead money lender to his sister, Mrs. Rose E. fcheddam, who lives in Knoxville. la. Dunlap got notoriety in New York and Philadelphia froiij his gospel wagon, in which lie set out to convert the Jews, and from his mouev lending operations in which he was accused frequently of usury His expereuces in the courts on these charges were so uupleasant that he arranged his business so that it won Id be hard to ideutify him with it. Each of his offices be came a loan company, force did not know him at all. He had a superintendent, with whom he did business. The superintend ent had charge of inspectors and agents. The inapectora inquirc in to ihe occupation, prospects, and personal property holdiugs of appli cauta lor loans. Dunlap was one of the first men to loan money to employees ou assignments of their He made a lortune in Philadelphia. One man who form erly worked for Dnnlap uow has offices ot this class in sixteen cities and is said to be worth $500,000. Dunlap's office employees at bis West Twenty-first street place saw him occasionally, but they were instructed never to address him on the streets and to reply to all In quiries that they did not know bini ••I didn't know Dunlap was dead until to-day," said the inspector m charge of the West Twenty-first street place, "We didn't know that we worked tor him. A man ought to be satisfied to get his pay •ithout insisting on knowiug who pays him. They say Dunlapcharg ed usury. Why, he didn't chargo but 0 per cent, but of course there was a notary fee lor making out the papers. But the notarg lee is nev er more than $4, generally only $2 Well come in." An agent entered. "This feller broke his leg and can't pay," said the agent, holding up a collection He.says he'fl pay the whole $12 for the three weeks next Satur# day. lie's been a customsr for eight years and we might let up on him. "Did lie only break one leg?" asked the inspector. "Well, get the money next week, or I'll brake your neck, '' Thus is Mr, Dunlap's business going on after bis death. The notary fee Is the way around the law. The papers have to be made out each time the loan is re newed. No sura larger than $50 is lent and the notary lee on that is $4 a monlli to which G per, cent interest is added. Duuiap's employees knew less of his brother, w ho is his partner, than of him. The other Dunlap lived most of the time in Philadel phia. When Wilson Dunlap died on May 26, at 301 West Twenty first street, his body was shipped at once to Philadelphia. In leaving Ills estate to his sister, Dun'ap directed her to use it for the spread of the "truo knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ." The petition for probate set a value of $5,000 on the property in this Slate. Unless ho conveyed it to his brother to escape the Collateral In heritance Tax law Duulapleft a much larger es* ate, for his income atone time from his Philadelphia and New York business combined was said to be $4,000 to $5,000 a month. Dunlap was knovvnabou tlhestreets as the ossified man. He had been paralyzed for many years and went about in a wheel chair. His gospel wagon was mobbed several times in its journeyings through the East Side. The gospel money lender was well known in this city he having visited here several times during the past years. His last trip to Wilmington was in the spring of last year. lie was here for about a week and went around in the gospel wagon silting in his wheel chair looking more dead than alive. He had several associates with him who sold gospel books from the wagon. The gospel wagon with t he ossified man sitting in It attract ed much attention in this city. Pine Fisl.1 Cjr.i.

CADETS ATTEND GRACE CHURCH Cadets of the Wilmington Mili tary Academy attended the service at Grace >l/E. Church yesterday The Rev. Win. Wirt King sernmu morning. preached tlie baccalaureate this being comment Dr. King'h subject w Boy." His text. John 0: 9, was: "There is a hid here who hath five barley loa\ small fishes; but what ar week. il St. tal from a iami two Hu'!' among so many:" Dr. King said in part: "The advent with which this hoy was so conspicuously connected and in which he filled such an important place was tho miraculous feeding tlie five thousand by ourJjLord. The miracle cannot tie mentioned with out recalling this boy's connection with it and contribution to it. The place where it occurred was on grassy slope at the foot of a tain on the eastern shore of the sea of Galilee, down tho coast a few miles south of the town of Bethesdu. Our Lord with His disciples had left the more populous western shore for the greater seclusion of this east ern shore that they might he alone and understood for a little while. Tlie people, however, soon discov ered the place to which they turned and began to come from every di rection, up the lake, down the lake, and across the lake, on the slope at the foot of tho mountain, them gathering there, came down front the mountain and spent the day teaching and healing. In conclusion, Dr. King proceeded to discuss the question ef how boys should live by speaking of the kind of a life a man would live if lie could become a boy again and carry tlie knowledge of mankind back into boyhood. The cadets listened with marked interest to the address of Dr. King, which was eloquent and forceful throughout.
