REPUBLICANS WERE ELECTED Count, of the Election of 1800 Shows That Democratic Legislators and Constitutional Convention Delegates From Kent County Were Unlaw* fully Sealed. Delaware's name for honor has re ceived another blow. Dishonesty has again been written on the hearts of some of the state's citizens. Dishonor and crime has taken strength anew in the strongholds of one of the state's political organiza tions. The Board of Canvass or Kent county at the order of the Superior Court of Kent county met in Dover yesterday and counted the vote polled at the last general election in 1800. The result of that count shows that ten Democratic members of the late constitutional convention were unlaw fully seated; that seven Democratic Representatives In the last Legisla ture were never elected; that one State Senator now holds his seat by ac knowledged frnud;that several Kepub lican members of Kent county's Levy Court, who were elected in 1800, were never seated; and that the Republi cans who were elected in 1800 sheriff 1 , coroner and county treasurer, did not receive their offices. All this was yesterday acknowl edged by the Democratic inspectors who composed the Board of Canvass which counted the votes of the elec tion held in Kent county in 1800. * The Democratic party sanctioned all this. ) From a Stftfl Correspondent. Dover, Oct. 11.—The vote of Kent county at the general election in 1896 lias at last been counted. After two years interval marked by re peated mandamus proceedings, Democratic inspectors' of the last elec tion in Kent county have today shown where they deliberately stole the vote of the entire county. The count lays bare tlie greatest politi cal steal in the history of the state and the result of that count today clearly demonstrates the enormity thereof. Obeying tlie order of tlie court tlie Board of Canvass in and for Kent county met liere to day in tlie court room and each and every inspector of elections gave the certified returns of the votes re ceived in his district. Sheriff Shaw pre sided and A. A. Watson and Secretary of State Hughes were chosen secretaries by the Republicans and Democrats respec tively. In vivid contrast to the memorable day two years ago w hen tlie vote was first counted tlie scene in tlie court room presented itself today. To begin with the whole vote was counted and then there was a noticeable absence of the g ang of Wilmington toughs who were rought here by the Democratic leaders and uspd as a factor in the steal. At tlie canvass two years ago this crowd of ir responsible hoodlums stood by while tlie Democrat inspectors refused to tabulate the returns and would agree to count only those whicli favored the election of the Democrats. Today's proceedings were quiet and orderly. From the time Sheriff Shaw called the board to .order at 12 noon un til it adjourned at 4.30 o'clock, business was transacted with dispatch—this busi ness being to tabulate tlie proofs that the Republican county ticket was elected in 1896 although the action of the Board of Canvass defeated the will of the people. The canvass today showed that at the general election in 1896 ten members of the Constitutional Convention were elec ted by the Republicans in Kent county of whom but five were seated; that seven representatives and one state sena tor were elected by the same party, none of whom were ever seated; that several members of the Levy Court were elected by.the Republicans, none of whom were ever seated, and that the Republicans who were elected sheriff, coroner and county treasurer respectively, did not receive their offices. Further than this S. R. Meredith, the holding over senator from Kent county, occupiesaplace to which he was never elected. The man who was elected is James Frank Allee, of this town. Such an exhibition of crime against as is presented by the result of the canvass is without parallel in the political history of tlie United States. The enormity of the crime has dawned op many of the in spectors, and the truth is that every man who refused to tabulate the returns of the Kent county election iu 1896, is politically and socially ostracized. They are dead. Men of opposite political faith look upon them with contempt and members of their own party loath them. William H. Walker, inspector for the Second election district of East Dover hundred, William H. Greenwell inspec tor for Kenton hundred, and Samuel C. Hughes inspector for First district South Murderkill hundred deplore the situa tion. These three men were inspectors who refused to tabulate the returns of the election, who deliberately stole the offices from honestly elected men and placed the same in the hands of men who did not represent the majority of the the state and the the All three of these men today expressed regret that they had been a parly to this disgraceful action. "Why, said Mr. Walker, "the men who gained tlie plums of office by our act today Bat in their offices as we passed on our way to the court house and laughed to think \ / wliat trouble helping liand wa9 offered. The pluniH had been gathered and we are of no more we were in. use. "Yes," put in William H. Greenwell and here welfare making fools of our selves before the state by owning up to our wrong." This man Greenwell is today a poor man, ow ing to the part he took in the flagrant crime against the state, and the the people of Kent county. He is butcher and has been boycotted by men of both political faiths and ostracized by everybody. It is said that so bitter does William H. Walker feel toward the Democratic party for the part which has been drawn on to play in this crime against state and society, that he has renounced the party and all its leaders. Two years ago at the meeting of the first Board of Canvass after the election young man—a member of the board— stood in the court room with a surging mass of men around and swore that he would lose his right hand before he would sign the certificate of election of the Republicans whom the count lias proven to have been elected. Today that man, Inspector Thomas H. Baxter a wreck of his former self, stood in the same place in the presence of the same board and acknowledged himself a party to the greatest piece of political crimi nality recorded in the political history of the United States. A party to the de liberate robbery of the people's senti ment. All the inspectors were present, as fol lows: Abel S. Farries, William H. Green well, John L. Scotten, Thomas II. Bax ter, Erasmus D. Burton, William H. Walker, John S. Rowan, Levi G. Sterner, Alexander J. Draper, Benjamin T. Con well, Samuel C. Hughes, John W. Shell drake, Franklin Tumlin, Clarence Mason, Charles Macklin, Inspectors of Election in the several Election Districts of Kent county, Delaware. Thomas McCoy, of Duck Creek hundred, was not required to be present, as no election was held in his district.

Harper, who had been out ail night, visited Gibbs' house in an intoxicated condition between the hours named and on knocking at the door was admitted by Nicey Palmer, with whom he had kept company.

A Young Man's Life Crushed Out Beneath an Unprotected Trolley Oar. THERE WERE NO FENDERS A Few Dollars Judiciously Spent By the City Railway Com pany Might Have Saved the Lire of Young Nephi Linsey Tlie Wilmington City Passenger Rail way Co. has added another murder to its list. In her humble home at No. 2305 West Second street, a mother sits weeping over the mangled body of her first born. On Thursday next, all that is mortal of Nephi Linsey will be laid at rest in Mount Salem cemetery. Two days ago lie was a healthy, happy boy, his mother's pride, her hope in the days to come. On Monday morning he went to his work a3 usual. Monday afternoon his crushed body was brought to her. They told her the tale of horror. How in avoiding a carriage he had been struck by a trolley car without fenders running at high speed, dashed to the ground, crushed, cut and mangled beneath the wheels. It is doubtful if the mother realized what she was told. All she saw was the battered face and mutilated form of the boy she loved. .... , , Her agony was heartrending, and for hours her reason tottered. Gradually from sheer weakness she became more ., ... , i j , Then the neighbors who had come to offer their service sMthed her, and with deft hands and kindly hearts did wliat they could to ease her troubles. Nephi was lb years of age the oldest of five children, three girls and a boy of whom survive. Of these the boy and the eldest girl are atHicted, and for this reason the blow fell the more heavily. The boy went with Ins father each morning to their work on the Brandy wine Springs road where they were era ployed as carters. Hie wages were small but the boy was proud that he could do even so little to help his mother His mother was wrapped up in the boy. His future was her one thought, and he gave promise of J a realzatiou of fondest hopes. Now her dream is ended, and with the light gone from her life, her hopes blasted, she can only weep blinding tears over all that man's greed lias left her. Young Linsey's death is a terrible in cident, yet it is only that which threatens tlie lives of every one, old and young, at every street corner which is crossed by the tracks of the railway company. The criminal close-fistedness of tlie railway company is responsible. They, and they alone, murdered young Nephi Linsey. Tlie' smug faced hypocrites who sit in the director's chairs "at the stated meet ings of the company and search for new "economies." The penny-grabbing skinflints, who, to save tlie few paltry dollars necessary to provide at least a semblance of safety to the public, run their juggernauts in all parts of the city. Wliat matters it to them that they crush the life out of a man? Why should thev put fenders on the cars when fen ders cost money and would decrease their dividends? It is only a workingman's boy and his people haven't the money to bring suit. The gentleman who sits in his easy chair and remarks, "Another ! All,that's too bad, but it can't be helped. What did he get in front of the car for," does not feel the agony. He only knows that his dividends come in with a reasonable regularity. Anything that interferes with their frequency or size is all that touches him. And yet this murderous policy of "economy" is costing the life blood of the people of this city. No man knows when lie starts to cross a street whether he will ever reach the other side. "Accidents" occur with startling fre quency. and yet fenderless and witli un protected sides these menaces to the safety of our citizens shoot down our streets. Somebody slips, the car rushes upon him, there is a scream of agony and a crushed and mangled form that was once a man is taken from beneath. Kind friends take the victim home and.the doors close. Then a few days later the deputy oner gets a jury together and they hold an inquest. A verdict is rendered of ac cidental death. The company is exone rated and that is all the public knows. Behind the doors of the home into whicli the body was borne there is a brokenhearted mother, whose eyes are dimmed with bitter tears, whose voice is shattered by sobs, whose reason totters as she thinks that her boy will never more come home at night after his day's toil. I | \ cor a This is a Bide that the public does not see and consequently never thinks of. This is the side that the director of the corporation never allows himself to con sider. And this is the result of the wilful neg ligence,economy, or wliat ever name it is thought beet to call it. In reality it is legalizsd murder. Mur der sanctioned by the city government who allow it. Sanctioned'by the Legis lature, upon whose throats the grip of the dollar has been so strong as to make them frame laws which permitted this thing to exist. There is no excuse which will cover the point. Fenders are needed and must be put on. The blood on car No. 2 of the Front street line is a terrible reason why. The motormen employed by the com pany have by their unceasing care and watchfulness kept down the list. Every it time a little tot s)ravs into danger the thought of his own little ones nerves hi arm and strengthens his grip. A fender and a bottle of wine cost the same. The director in his cosy home knows little and cares less of wliat it means. His wine must be cold, his bird hot, his parlor bright and his happy. Probably the dav will come when the president will shudder as the finger 1 fate points at him and the voice of the widow and orphan cries "murderer." Every director will probably justly feel a contraction of the spine as the big headline of "Murder" stands out on the day following each succeeding mur der. ow» little ones of A bottle of wine and a fender cost the same. A New Jersey judge controlled by the same syndicate as that which controls the Wilmington City Railway, handed down from his judical bench the august decision that the life of a working man's child was worth one dollar. One paltry silver dollar was handed to the broken hearted mother to repay her for the loss of her beautiful child. Would to God that if another life must go up that the victim may be near and dear to the men on whom the responsi bility rests. Much ; better that one of his own should give up his life that others might live.
