in the afternoon.
Levy court \\
morning upon
accounts of Justice of the Peace Bratton
aud Constable Du had way were under
consideration almost all the forenoon.
In conversation with members of the
court over the statement in a morning
paper making reflections upon assessor
of the First Wilmington district, John
J. O'Hara's accounts it seems that the
charge of "much talk" and fault finding
was not found with the Democratic as
sessor's statement but with the account
of Republican assessor of the Third dis
trict, Police Officer Charles Whann.
The charge by the paper referred to
is that assessor O'Hara lias
tween 1,400 and 1,500 names while his
report shows 2,665 names and entries.
And it is added that there are but few
over 1,400 voters in the district. The
attempted accusation of padding the
voters list caused a broad smile among
tho members of tho court on Friday.
The whole matter is simply that the
writer either did not understand what
talking about,
standing, he purposely used an apparent
disperitv, legitimate enough when com
prehended, to mislead and create a
wrong impression amoung the readers
of the paper.
It. is well known to all conversant
sessor's returns that the list
presented to tho levy court is
names and entries not of voters. A
voter's name will necessarily appear
half a dozen times if he he the possessor
of as many district properties. Wo
men's names also appear in the list
which also must be struck out when
computing the total of voters.
Now, in regard to Assessor Whann's
accounts, which
caused "much talk" and had to be re
turned to the assessor threo times for
correction, it appears that ho attempted
to assess polls almost alone, leaving out
properties almost, altogether. The names
and entries which ho finally sent in for
the Sixth, Ninth and Seventh wurds
totaled up 2,649 names and entries, a
total for the Third assessment district
sufficiently amazing to attract the at
tention of anyone ordinarily susceptible
to the impression of wonderful things.
Levy court adjourned at noon to 2
o'clock in the afternoon.
At the opening of levy court session
Friday afternoon on the motion of
Mr. Jolla. Messrs. Buckingham, Grubb,
Sutton, Clark and Gilles were appointed
a committee to make arrangements for
the supply of necessaries at the jail in

Ball's tramp law may be carried into

order that a fairer pro-rating may be

that Inspector Fagan, not being a minis

powers being of a quasi-judicial kind he

Count Relnhold A. Lewenhaupt died
suddenly at his home, 1017 Adams street,
shortly after 6 o'clock, Monday morn
' g. Death came suddenly and the news
of his demise occasioned a great shock to
his friends in tho city. His illness
short and perhaps no one outside of his
immediate family were aware that his
in peril until the sad news of
ids death was announced. Dr. Bullock,
the physician in attendance, states that
Count Lewenhaupt had been indisposed
for the past two or throe weeks. As late
Tuesday of last week he was at his
desk in the draughting department of
the Harlan & Hollingsworth Company,
but complaining of feeling ill did not
return to his duties. He was not, how
ever, teriously sick until Friday when
Dr. Bullock was summoned. The phy
found his patient suffering from a
malignant attack of typhoid fever and
the dread malady resisted efforts to stay
its ravages.
The sad and untimely death of Count
Lewenhaupt, brings with it the more
poignant sorrow and occasions the
greater shock by reason of his marriage
ten davs ago to Miss Ellen, daughter of
. Thomas F. Bayard. The wedding
was celebrated at Delà more Place, the
Bayard mansion, on April 2d. It
quiet but elegant wedding. The guests
numbered about ono hundred, and rep
resented the best known people in the
exclusive and select social circles of
Philadelphia, New York and the east.
The Swedish minister to Washington,
a fellow countryman of tho groom, was
represented by an attache, and other
distinguished Swedish residents of this
country were present. It was, perhaps,
the most brilliantand distinguished social
gathering
Preceding and at the time of the wed
ding the groom doubtless was suffering
from typhoid fever in its incipient
stages but the joyous occasion dispelled
all evidences of indisposition, and lie
shared with his bride the congratula
tions of the assemblage. Directly after
the wedding breakfast and the guests
had departed the Count and Countess
Lewenhaupt went to their home where
lie on Monday morning passed peacefully
to his death. It was their intention to
remain in the cosy home fora short time
and with the return of good weather to
start for Europe to remain three months.
The count had looked forward with
pleasurable pride to presenting his fair
American bride to his family and to his
sovereign, and to have passed part of
the summer in Sweden's capital.
The preparation of their home here
gave the bride and groom infinite and
blissful pleasure. They set up their
cosy household with the happiest
S ations attending personally to every
etail and performing much of the
manual duty. It seemed the epitome of
Count Lowonhaupt's happiness to de
vote the leisure his business granted to
beautifying and adding to the cosiness
of his home and it is feared he over
exerted his physical strength, thus
dering him an easy victim of the dread
malady.

retiring in his habits and his ambition
to excel in his line of endeavor—ship
architecture—brought him but little in
contact with the oublie and lie was but
comparatively little known outside of
his circle of personal friends.
Count Lewenhaupt was born* in
Sweden and was 31 years of ago. llis
family, one of tho oldest and best in
that country, has the controlling inter
est in the iron works there. By -a law
of the country the title of count" i
ferred upon the sons of the oldest fami
lies and in accordance therewith ho re
ceived his title. One of his brothers is
chamberlain to the queen of Sweden.
The count was a college graduate, lie
learned the shipbuilding business in
Scotland and came to the United States
about two and a half years ago for the
purpose of perfecting himself in naval
architecture. After making short social
visits to various cities he came to Wil
mington and was employed by the Har
lan & Hollingsworth Company
ship draughtsman. During his stay
here ho learned the practical as well as
the theoretical part of the business. He
mingled very little in society and w
very popular with his husincs associates.
He first met Miss Bayard in Washing
ton, when her father was Secretary of
State. He was introduced to the Bayard
family by the Swedish minister. The
Lewenhaupt family has considerable
money invested in Swedish estates.
Followed by a few sorrowing relatives

PRAYKR A?
It seems
if the prayer of tho sturdy
old furmer had met with speedy response,
for early this morning the hand of tne law
fell upon young "Dr." George A. Bramm,
who had been reared in the neighborhood,
und who is known as a desperate char
acter. His old father, who has been known
throughout tho country for y
"Pilotville Giant," has not yot bee
arrested, but is under surveillance, and he
knows it.

brick. Answer quick.
W. C. Haines.
»S. Rod mon d Smith stated to a re
porter of The Gazett yesterday moriring
that liis conjecture is that the cluster oi
frame business stores situate in Centre
and Ladija streets was the property de
stroyed. Mr. Smith replied to Mr.
Haines' telegram to agree to the sug
gestion donating lots to people who
will rebuild in brick instead of lumber.
The result of the conflagration, Mr.
Smith thinks, will probably be to hasten
the completion of the water works and
other improvements for which the lust
Alabama legislature authorized
appropriation of $50,000.
Mr. Smith added that the cluster of
business houses burned w
tiguous frame houses in the old part of
the city. Undoubtedly the
ount of loss, $250,000, is grossly ex
exaggerated.
