The Onpleasantness "Cussed" and Dis
cussed—A Committee of Conference
Appointed A Big Turnout of
From the agitation which had been accord
ed the subject during the past week, it was
pretty well settled that the meeting of the
City Democratic Association last evening
would be a lively one, and those who visited
Squire Brady's office, under the impression
that the proceedings would be interesting
not disanDointed.
By eight o'clock the room was literally
packed with sweltered humanity, and Presi
nent Farrell having called the meeting to
order, Secretary Townsend read the min
ward organizations.
When the secretary had finished reading,
Mr. O'Donnell moved that the report from
S«r" S w«" Pt ' he SCVenth ' bC " aid
A discussion followed, during which Mr.
Mellon stated that he had received a notice
to attend a meeting of the Executive Com
mittee at the Lafayette Hotel on Tuesday
evening last. He obeyed Hie call but
found that the President, Secretary and
myself were the only three who did obey it,
and he thought something would be done
in the matter. If the men who were selected
to represent the different wards in the Ex
ecutive Committee did not choose to do so,
ward meetings should again be called, and
men elected who would.
The motion being called for, President
Farrell stated it to be that " the reports of the
wards which are in revolt against this asso
ciation shall not be recognized." A vote
was taken and a division called for which re
suited in the adoption of the motion by 58
to 14
Mr O'Donnell then moved that the re
port from the Seventh Ward, ami the rest
of the minutes be adooted agreed to unani
1 P g
Snuire Hradv reoorted that he had seen
Mr lamente/ the ^Treasurer elect and that
the latter had requested him to notify the
acRorintinn that he accented I he nosition
President Farrell spued th'it he under
stood that while Mr Carne,uèr was wülinv
to accent the position of Treasurer of th?
association he Jls no wi l nu to acï t he
same canacitv for the Executive Committee
and whs? the'associatiotl wanted was a man
c ! association wanted was a man
who would accept both positions.
Mr. Brady thought that Mr. Carpenter's
acceptance should be recognized, and if he
refused to obey the wishes of the associa
tion, action would be taken on the subject.
This was agreed to.
A member thought it would be advisable to
form a sort of permanent Hancock and Eng
lish Club out of the association, to embrace
all the wards, but was informed that the
wards would attend to that subject, and he
sat down,
A motipn was made through the assucia
tion to go into nomination for Vice Presi-,
dents, one for each ward. The President
decided the motion out of order, as these
positions were already filled, and until the
present incumbents were disposed of, the
association could not elect substitutes.
Mr. Wm. H. Quinn obtained the floor
and made a speech in reference to the in
harmonious condition of things generally.
He said that the local Democracy of Wil
mington were battling against the same evil
that the National Democracy had to contend
against. "There are," said he, "in this
try some ninety odd thousand office holders,
and these office holders are endeavoring to
control the people of the United States,
arrogating to themselves the privilege of
dictating who shall be elected and hold offi
ces, but the Democratic party of this
try are determined to shew them next No
vember that they have a few objections to
present to this condition of affairs. Here in
Wilmington we have forty-two office holders,
and these forty-two appear to be acting in
the same roll. But the Democracy of this
city have uttered an emphatic protest to this
condition of affairs through this association,
and hence the dissatisfaction among the offi
ce holders Let us have harmony in our
ranks if possible, but let us have our rights
frequently interrupted with
comments of approval and disapproval, at
one point councilman Blake asking him how
he stood when he was an officeholder, to
which Mr. Quinn replied, " I never under
took to make a life job out of an office."
At the close of his remarks, Mr. Quinn
moved that a committee of five be ap
pointed to confer with the other ring.
The motion was seconded, and President
Farrel put it: "It has been moved and
seconded that a committee of five be ap
pointed to confer with "
Here the President stopped and wanted
to know with whom the committee was to
Mr. Turner explained "with the Execu
tive Committee."
" So-called Executive Committee," amen
ded Mr. Mellon, and this term appearing to
suit the association, the motion was put and
carried with an amendment of 10 instead of
as the committee.
Upon motion, the President was authori
zed to appoint the committee, and the fol
lowing were named •
Messrs. Henry Turner, E. C. Knight,
Wm. H. Quinn, Charles Cannon, James
W. Ware, Francis » McCloskey, John J.
Toner, Frank Kane, Edward McGuire,
August Bicta.
Charles Jefferis delivered an eulogy upon
H. B. Moindre, proclaiming him the best
worker in the party in Wilmington.
The following resolution was offered and
after a lively discussion laid over one week:
" Bt it resolved hy thc Democratic City Association, that
the action of the Executive Committee in ignoring this as
sociation meets with our unqualified disapprobation."
It was moved that the secretary be in
structed to notify the Conference Committee
of their appointment. Adopted.
Mr. Mellon moved that the committee be
governed in their action by the rules of the
Mr. Turner hoped the committee would
not be fettered in any way. Let the commit
tec act according to its own judgment, and
thc association can either reject or adop t its
Mr. Mellon withdrew his motion. Presi
dent called Mr. Blake to the chair, and tak
ing the floor, made an earnest speech in de
fense of the action of the association in
naming the chairman of the Executive Com
mittee. He strongly condemned the course
of what he termed " the Democratic papers
of Wilmington,''saying that their slurs and
Mr. Qui
inuendoes were a peculiar method of "pour
ing oil
troubled waters."
Mr. Turner folic wed, hoping the Commit
tee of Conference would be able to straight
en matters.
A motion to adjourn was carried, and
about ten o'clock, the meeting adjourned.

are said to have amounted to $30,000,
worth of goods. Next comes the firm of

Things appropos to the Season about
Ladies' Toilets—Costumes for
the Traveler and the
Seaside Visitor.
[Specially compiled for the Mirror. 1
The ladies who regret not being able to
wear in summer, bodices of a material differ
ent from the skirt, may rest content ; there
are yet several combinations which allow of
continuing a fashion above all others,
nomical. With black or dark-colored skirts,
they may wear a bodice of black figured
silk or wool. With skirts of lighter shades,
in self-colors, they can put
foulard, with a printed or brocaded pattern
—especially if they use for the trimmings of
the skirt a little of the same material, either
as bias-bands or as plaits dividing a flounce
at regular distances.
Among the silk tissues suitable to
ei 0
a bodice of
toilettes, surah, in all colors, is employed in
preference to all others—black surah for
elegant under-skirts ; handsomer and thick
er twilled surah for mantles ; similar surah,
in black or colors, for costumes, in combi
nation with light woolen or with figured ma
ilJerials. A few descriptions of modern toil
ettes, however, will give a better idea of
, T ucb combinations than any general re
hc f larks.
The costume for traveling and for the*
luVountry or beach is made of fancy woolen
0 JOods—-woolen armure, beige, or chaly.
, Uhe skirt is cut round and trimmed with a
1 ited tlounce or deep kilting. .The front
►Iay,irt is then shirred, and the back is looped
linUnto a narrow diapery. The bodice is a
TiAg-waisted jacket, either buttoned all the
way down in front, or slanted off over the
hips, and forming square lappets in front.
Deep indigo-blue, garnet, and seal-brown
are fashionable for such costumes as well as
beige and gray tints.
Traveling-cloaks for the railroad or steam
er are of dust-gray or beige material ; their
shape is that of a paletot, half-fitting behind
and loose in front. They
bias bands of silk
edged with
fine cashmere put on
inside, and showing just beyond the edge,
called dépassants. The paletot is made
either with a long bernouse hood or with a
treble cape, formed of superposed collars,
all edged with silk as above described. The
trimmings for beige or gray mantles
mostly of some dark shade of brown
prune. A few unique models, however,
have the dépassants of deep red silk. But
tons are large and ornamental.
The walking-costume is often finished
with a jacket of some pretty brocaded
terial different from the skirt, but not black.
Thus, with all beige, gray, and in general
neutral-tinted dresses, a jacket of seal-brown
or prune brocaded wool and silk fabric looks
very elegant; and to
light-colored washing-dresses a jacket of In
dian cashmere is very stylish as well as use
ful, especially at seaside places, where the
weather changes
with white
suddenly towards eve
For the beach, the short costume is
universally adopted, and also for the coun
elegant of walking-toi
made without any train what
_ry. Even the
TWettes are
io ever.
|js The tunic and the double-skirt are equally
is fasionable.
,uy A very pretty dress of Pompadour foulard,
a pattern of floriated stripes, and of self
colored merveilleux surah is made thus :
Tunic of the Pompadour foulard ; long
waisted, glove-fitting bodice ; tablier turned
U P,. apparently to show a lining of the surah,
plaited across and looped # up behind in a
drapery, in which both materials are happi
ly combined. Under-skirt of the surah,
trimmed with a flounce in which the plaits,
put on in threes, are alternately of each
material. The sleeves of Pompadour fou
or lard have revers of the surah and white
This same toilette can be made of Pompa
dour cambric and self-colored ditto or linen,
Simpler costumes are made with a double
skirt and casaquin-bodice, trimmed with
'bias-bands or flutings.
One of the prettiest fabrics of the season
is called " nun's veiling." It is a very light
semi-transparent material, which combines
very effectually with brocaded silk
Thus a very elegant costume is composed
of heliotrope-colored nun's veiling and satin
of the same color. The front of the skirt is
shirred; on each side is a robing formed
of four plaits of satin.
The bodice, in the
shape of a deep jacket, is made of satin,
^ith passementerie brandebourgs of the
*pr; round the neck, a double ruche of
e rayt d'esprit tulle coming down into a quil
/ijjffle down the front of the bodice.
fi the bottom of the front part of the
3 there are two narrow flounces of ruche
toother very tastef ul costume consists of
|jrt of buff surah, trimmed with flutings,
a of a very long polonaise of nun's veil
9 primmed with satin and beaded passe
°}xrie of the same color ; it is looped up
.4 silk cord. The neck is trimmed round
» a necklace of amber bead fringe.
A lady can always be known as such from
El foot-gear. She may go out dressed in
K^ery simple dress of dark-colored fancy
HEalen material,but her boots and stockings,
W^well as her gloves, will be faultless,and the
bow of real old lace artistically arranged at
her thioat will proclaim at once who she is.
The silk stocking is of course, the most
elegant. It is self-colored with embroidered
else it has some tiny pattern in two
more ; or again, the clocks alone
of a different tint. The filoselle stock
ing is not very pretty, and still less durable,
therefore the fine lisle thread stocking is to
be preferred, excepting the fine silk stock
White underskirts are made very short,
gored, and trimmed round the bottom with
three flutings edged with narrow lace. All
under-clothing is more fashionable trimmed
with lace and fine tucking this summer than
with embroidery. For children and little
girls this style is a favorite. It is long
waisjed and loose fitting in front, while at
the back 11 sets P erfectl y close to the figure.
r A !™ n g lhe prettiest of children's toilettes
for tbe month August I may mention a
frock of blue s P ottet * muslin-delaine. Two
hollow plaited flounces entirely cover the
short skirt, while the bodice comes down
very low, and is divided from the skirt by a
blue sash tied in a bow at the side ; this
bodice opens in front with facings edged
witb white lac e> over a long plastoon of
P uffed wbite surah > and is finished at the
top with a deep colIar ed 8 ed with lace. The
«^eeves have.cuffs of the white surah edged
ed through ttieV»«.*$Qunces tbe skirt are also
and Will's dfhis is for a little girl
"Lj^'.ng ißim 0 i d .
P^ToSTuMe for about the same age,
lght beige material and fancy wool
brocade in two shades of brown. The frock
itself is of the beige material and trimmed
round the bottom with a deep kilting of
same. A drapery of the fancy brocade
arranged across the front, forming paniers
at the side, and disappearing at the back
under a loose puff, formed of the beige ma
terial, just above the kilting. A deep collar
and cuff of this same brocade complete
This model can also be made of plain
cambric, combined with figure, ditto.
For a girl of fifteen, a dress ^Iso of
same shape, made of any light, fancy wool
en material, is trimmed with three

George Alfred Townsend's trip to Europe

The first and most important thought is,
where does a newspaper man get enough
money for a trip to Europe. The next is

however, that he goes to interview Glad

The Jefferson Club has added to the por

engraving of Thomas Jefferson, published
by Bettoni, of Paris. The workmanship is
very fine, and the picture is taken from the
portrait painted by Baron Desnoyers, in
1787, during the visit of Jefferson to France.
The publisher dedicated his work to Gen
eral Lafayette. Mr. Jefferson presented to
Joseph Corlidge, Jr., in 1782, the writing
desk on which the Declaration of Indepen

stating its historical value. This desk was
lately presented to Congress by Mr. Jeffer

Jefferson Club have received a fac-simile of
this presentation note. The asticles were

Special officer Hunt slaughtered eleven
dogs last night, that being the number of
unregistered canines unredeemed and there
fore doomed. During the week about thirty
unregistered dogs were captured, and all
had to pay the penalty of not being attached
to the necessary tags. No complaint can be
made that the clog ordinance is not being
enforced. Some complaint has been made,
however, of offensive smells from the cells,
in the hall basement, where the dogs are
confined. A Mirror reporter was taken
into the dungeon yesterday afternoon by
officer Hunt and shown the condition of the
place. It was found that every precaution is
taken for the preservation of cleanliness, in
fact, nothing is left undone to keep the
place as pure as possible, and, instead of
censure, the highest praise is due for the
manner in which the law is being carried
out. The difficulty of the work was illus
trated during the visit to the dungeon yes
terday, when officer Hunt in trying to
age the dogs was attacked by the largest of
the group. The dog was quicjdey control
