The funeral of Mrs. Kate Stoeckle, wife of Harry Stoeckle, manager of the Diamond State Brewery, took place yes terday afternoon from her late home No. 409 Adams street. The handsome parlor in which the body of Mrs. Stoeckle was lying was al most entirely taken up by the floral tributes the principal of which were a vacant chair presented by employes the brewery, a large harp from those em ployed in the office, gates ajar from David Pangel and wife, a lyre from Wil liam Gattman. of Philadelphia; Charles Zoller, Herman Souderburg and Hugo Keisburger, of New York; Frederick Wunder, of Brooklyn, and many friends from abroad also ' sent suitable floral remembrances. The drivors of the brew ery sent a large piece representing the gates ajar composed entirely of wax. The remains reposed in a superb casket made of San Domingo mahogany, cop per-lined, and was perfectly air and water tight.

Railroad Company is trying.topurchase tlie W. & N. railroad, but Col. Henry A. dn Pont, president of tlie latter road, says that tlie statement is untrue. Col. du Pont's qualification to speak oil the subject rests on the fact that the road is controlled hv the du Pont inter ests, and syndicates might purchase blocks of stock until tlie day of doom, but unless they included the du Pont in terests they would never secure control. Some time ago, lie said, 100 shares of the stock were offered for sale in Phila delphia, but there was no bidder. He added that not even Col. du Pont would bid on the stock. Although the speaker had heard the rumor, he had secured no information leading to tlie belief that a deal had been made. Where is Jacob L. Lily? No clue lias yet been found to the whereabouts of Jucob L. Lily, a shoe maker, of Dover, who disappeared sud denly on September 25. His business was in a good condition and his dis tracted wife can imagine no cause for his action. She fears that he has either met with foul "play or else lias committed suicide. Lily was in this city a few days after his disappearance but lias not been seen since. Her Death Accidental. After hearing tlie testimony of several witnesses the coroner's jury at Chester rendered a verdict of accidental death in the case of Mrs. Mary Ferguson of Wil mington, who was killed by the cars in that city recently. According to the tes timony tlie railroad company was not to blame for the woman's death. Class to Be Confirmed.

TRADUCER IS AN ENGINEER He Was Frequently Warned But as He Persisted in His Insults the Strong Arm of t he Law Was Called Into Play. Rev. George L. Wolfe, pastor of the First M. P. Church, has had a warrant sworn out for the arrest of one of the former members of his congregation whom he claims has insulted him. The warrant was issued yesterday by Magistrate Daley and placed in the hands of Constable Windish, but up to a late hour last night that official had not succeeded in serving it. Mr. Wolfe was visited at his home,No. 513 West street, last evening and refused to state the nature of the insult offered hut said that the person making the derogatory remarks was a former mem ber of the church. He also said that it was not his inten tion to push the case but that he would insist on his traducer, who, by the way, engineer, in being placed under bond to keep tbe peace. From an outside source it was gleaned that the pastor had been repeatedly in sulted by the man in question. He, it is said, refused to pay any heed to Mr. Wolfe's protests and the assistance of the members of the congregation was called into play. They visited the party* and warned him to desist from his'attacks, but as he paid no attention to their advice, Mr. Wolfe as a last resource, was compelled to rely on the law. It is stated that the attacks made on Mr. Wolfe were scurrilous and of such a nature that the good names and char acter of himself and many of the mem bers were involved. It was through them it is said, that Mr. Wolfe was requested to call in the strong arm of the law. Mr. Wolfe says that he fully expects that the man will be arrested today and after the case lias been tried by magis trate Daley fie will make public the na ture of the attacks and the revengeful spirit that incited them. is an MRS. BOTKIN COMING. The Notorious California Woman Sure rendered to the Delaware Authorities. Special Dispatch to The Sun. Dover, Del., Oct. 6.—The official noti fication of Governor Budd's action con firming Mrs. Bodkin's surrender to the Delaware authorities was received here this morning. In view of the determined stand made by Governor Budd the news was some what surprising, but the authorities were nevertheless very much gratified and much satisfaction was felt and expressed. Sgrne doubt was expressed as to secur ing an absolutely impartial jury in Kent county, but the general impression seems to be that there will be nothing to fear upon this point. Governor Tunnell expressed himself clearly and concisely upon this pAnt in an interview. He was visited at his office in the Capital Building and in answer to questions concerning the case, said that in his opinion, though the entire state showed a certain degree of prejudice, yet he thought that she would receive a fair and impartial trial at the hands of a Kent county jury. In fact, if anything, he thought that tlie jury would be inclined to be lenient rather than prejudiced. Just what future action tlie state au thorities will take towards bringing Mrs. Botkin to this state depends entirely upon Attorney-General White. Despite the assurance given bv Detective McVev that fie can bring Mrs. Botkin here un assisted, it is thought better to send some one to aid him. Detective Witsil will in all probability assist in tlie custody of the noted prisoner. The lack of suitable quarters for women prisoners is causing some eni barrasment, and there is a strong popu lar sentiment demanding tlie enlarge ment and proper divisions of the jail. Tlie Levy Court has been notified and take the matter into immediate con sideration. will Trustees for Insane Meets. At the meeting of tlie Btiard of Trus tees of tlie State Hospital for the Insane yesterday morning Superintendent llancker" reported tlie admission of three males during the month and the dis charge of nine males and six females, a decrease of twelve patients, leaving the institution witli a total population of 105 males and 116 females.

Special to The Sen. Dover, Dol., Oct. 0.—A bold and sys tematic senes of robberies is bothering tlie officials of the Delaware Division and N. Y. P. & N. rai'roads. >Several isolated stations have been carefully and consci entiously relieved of cash and articlts of value, and freight depots line have been robbed of all along the provisions and freigtit aggregatuig several thousand dollars. The robberies have been going on for some time and as yet no positive clue has resulted from tlie work of the detec tives who are working on tlie case. Special Detective Hutchinson, of tlie Pennsylvania railroad, lias been put on the case, as his familiarity with Dela ware and the Peninsula peculiarly fit him for tlie work. He expects soon to land the perpetra tors behind the bars. There is no doubt but that the robber ies are the work of an organized gang as their work is done well and no trace left. They also seem to have accurate knowl edge of the right time and place, as they never rob a place that does not pay. Good Advice. Do not try to tell all that yon know, even about the articles advertised, in a single advertisement. This age is an age of hurry, and, following the spirit of tlie age, people read advertisements in a hurry. The impression which is to he made must he made quickly and deftly. I believe that many readers are repelled from advertisements by the impression which is often created of a long and tedi ous story. Do not crowd the space, but make it appear at a glance easy to read. —Advertising Experience. * ■ Showed Gross Partiality in Mus tering Ont Certain Men of Delaware Volunteers. GOVERNMENT TAKES ACTION Officers In Command Will Be Sub jected to a General Shaking; Up— Horace G. Knowles Holds a Satisfactory Interview With President. General John P. Donahoe returned last evening from Washington, where he had gone to secure the discharges of a number of the soldiers of the First Bat talion, First Delaware Volunteers, who still remain at Camp Meade, Middle town, Pa. The general stated that his visit was successful and that within a few days the men whose interests he represented would be allowed to return to their homes here. He also stated that the government intended to have a "general shaking up" of the line officers, and the indications are that they will be hauled over the coals for the gross partiality they showed in selecting men to be mustered out, and who arrived in Wilmington on Monday with the two battalions under Colonel Gordon. The government, he says, is cognizant of the acts of the line officers, and an order has been issued to the effect, "that hereafter any man now serving in the First Battalion desiring to he discharged from the volunteers, must make out an application and give it to his captain. Ho wifi be compelled to forward it to his colonel and he in turn will send it to brigade headquarters, and from thence it will be sent to the adjutant general of the War Department at Washington.

ODR NEXT UNITED STATES SENATOR i M October 7, 1898 | ONE VOTE FOR H a 1 g NAME: 1 ADDRESS: * The opportunities of the public at large to vote for the man of their choice for United States Senator are con spicuous for their absence. The Sun offers an opportunity for everybody to express their opinion as to who"is the best man to represent the in terests of the Diamond State in the councils of the nation. This is an opportunity that has never before been accorded to the people of any state within the history of the na tion. The plan is simple. Fill out the coupon at the head of this column and send it to The Sun. We pub lish the number of votes received by each candidate every day in order to keep the voters posted. The Sun also makes this offer. The winner in this contest has the privilege of naming any charity in the state to he the recipient of one hundred dollars, which will be paid to the said charity by The Sun. The contest will continue until the first ballot is taken in the Legislature. There is no law or requirement which makes it necessary for you to sign your name to your ballot, though we would rather you would. They will be counted just the same, however, if you do not wish your opinions known. Send in your ballot and help win that $100 for some deserving charity. All votes credited to each contestant do not necessarily represent all the votes received for each contestant. They merely represent those that are counted up to 12 midnight of the day proceeding. Willard Saulsbury has taken a big jump in tlie senatorial contest, the result of yesterday's vote, placed him at the head of the list, Besides his iieavy vote there was a fair return for others of the leaders. One man who has evidently not kept tab on the papers, writes as follows. Editor of The Sun: Dear Sir:— Why don't you count votes sent in by me for Senator Kenney. I have sent in twenty votes in the last two weeks and none have been counted. I think the Senator is all right. S. M. E. We thank S. M. E. for his interest in tlie matter and will forward him a copy of the paper containing our reasons if lie will send his address.

Baltimore, Md., Sept. 19, 1898. Mv Dear Gray: Let me congratulate you upon the present edition of "The Parlor Match." I can hardly realize that my old friend Hoey was not missed. Yours, etc., Charles Ford. This is all well enough. When "The Parlor Match" was in Baltimore, the famous Anna Held was with it. Cer tainly Old Hoss Hoey was not missed. The crowd went to see Anna Held. She left the "Parlor Match" Company and is nowin New York playing the "French Maid." "The Parlor "Match" Company as now composed, a lot of barnstormers, will be in this city on October 7. But neither Anna Held nor Hoey is now with the company. The present "edi tion," as Manager Ford terms it, is abso lutely without a redeeming feature. Bring Anna Held to this city and the people will go see "The Parlor Match." They will not go see a crowd of barn storming actorB and actresses, such as now compose "The Parlor Match" Com pany. _ Seriously Injured.
