- mm ■ THE SUN. 35 WILMINGTON, DELAWARE, SUNDAY, OCTOBER ltf, 1898. ONE CENT I VOL. 1. NO. 957. 1 Soldiers of First Delaware Vol unteers Will Answer To a Grave Charge. WILMINGTON'S LOW MORALITY A Prominent Attorney Says That the Mother is to Blame For a Daugh ter's Shame—Agent Stout Suppresses the News. That the morality existing in tire city of Wilmington is not what it should be lias been fully demonstrated during the past six months and the probabilities are that when certain members of the First Delaware Volunteers return from Camp Meade, Middletown, Pa., to this state they will be arrested and face a jury on the charge, which if proved true, l means the hangman's nooBe in this j state. , , During tlie past three weeks the ■ mothers of five young girls, all under age, have placed the cases of their ruined daughters in charge of Frank Stout, agent for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. They stated that their daughters had met the young men who had accom ilished their ruin while the soldiers were lere on a furlough. , They were unable to give the names of the young men to their mothers but stated that they could identify the men who had taken advantage of them. This being the case it is the intention of the authorities to place the soldiers representing this state in line when they return and the novel and disgraceful sight of five ruined girls identifying as many men wearing tlie uniform of Uncle Sam will be the result. These cases, a prominent attorney of this city said yesterday, were only a few of the many instances of a similar nature that have been called to iiis at tention. • He rightfully places tlie blame for tlie low morality now existing in different I sections, where it belongs, on tlie i mother. It is to her, ho claims, that all daugh ters should look up to, to save them from harm, but instead of doing this, lie says, their mother practically places, them in the path of temptation by al most telling them to go on the street and catch as many young men as you ■ f i til can. . , He also eays that there are men in the city whom lie knows do nothing but watch for such opportunities, and after satisfying their passion they throw their victims in tlie street and laugh at tlie ruin wrought. He named a number of men who, lie said, he knew had ruined more than one girl in this way and lie thought it near time that a Btop was put to it and a city's shame uvenged. Of late vears, he staled, the low moral ity of Wilmington had become a byword throughout the United States and if the mother would properly look to the inter ests of her daughters this could never have been said. Agent Stout when interviewed in refer ence to the cases given denied them but the gentleman who gave the information says it is true, and that Mr. Stout so in formed him. Why Mr. Stout should the information asked is not suppress known,and as lie is a public official he is supposed to see to the morals of this community, and "give the news, towards stopping this vice and not attempt to prevaricate and conceal it.

After Having It Fulfilled, the Un lucky Man From Riverview Dropped It on the Coast. John I'rice, a well known resident of Riverview, came into Wilmington yes terday afternoon with an intention. His friends knew lie had an intention, for they saw that peculiar glitter in his eve that foreboded an intention. Mr. Price fulfilled iiis intention at John McHugh's wholesale liquor store and carried it out of the building, ac cording to intention, in a life sized, one gallon demijohn. The glitter had left the man's eye, and his face, instead of the fierce look of de termination, had assumed that calm and peaceful expression peculiar to a man who has carried out his intention. John walked up Market street to the corner of Front and waited patiently for a Riverview car, casting repeated fond glances at the demijohn of "McHugh's best." The car arrived and stopped. John Price, loaded with his bottle of good in tention, stepped on the car step and by soma mismanagement dropped his wicker-.eovered intention, breaking the bottom out of it and spilling the precious bottled "sunshine." A*: the precious liquid was dancing and gurgling over the rocky road bed of Market street and glittering in the sun light, many residents of the coast as sembled around the wrecked demijohn which was once so full of life and geniality. With sad and mournful faces they at once adopted resolutions of regret and blended their tears w ith those of the owner of the shattered intention. STRANGE COINCIDENCE.

SPENT EIGHTY-SIX DOLLARS The Truants Had a Gay Old Time and Had But Thirty-Five Cents Be tween Them When They Were Cap- i tured. The story of Wilmington's three rov ing boys who were found sn Chicago reads like fiction. On Friday, September 30, William Grady was sent to the bank by his father, Michael Grady, a shoe dealer at Third and King streets, to make a de posit of $86.66. Instead of making tlie deposit, young Grady, who is 14 years of age, in company with Andrew Hick man and Charles Greaves, Jr., both boyg about the same age as himself, went on a pleasure tour and were finally captured at Chicago with but 35 cents between them. Tlie story of the boys' trip out-rivals the "Many Merry Mishaps of Nod,or the Weird, Wonderful Wanderings of'Nid." On leaving Wilmington the boys walked to Shellpot Park and from there they went to Edge Moor, where they took the train for Philadelphia. They stopped in Philadelphia all night and next day purchased a suit of clothes each at Snellenburg's. They New York, Easton, Wilkesbarre and Scranton. At Scranton the young Americans bought Pullman tickets for Chicago. They visited Buffalo and Niagara Falls, and from the latter place they went to Detroit in a sleeper, and from Detroit to Chicago in a Pullman. On their arrival at Chicago they had but $3.10 between them and paid 50 cents of it for one room, in which they all slept. The next day they walked out to find a railroad track and found tlie B. & 0. road, and walked along until they came to a place called Evansdale on the Hill. At this place the boys noticed a police man coming towards them. Greaves suggested that it would be well to sepa rate and Hickman, acting on his sug gestion, moved awav from the other two boys. The policeman arrested Groves and Grady and beckoned to Hickman to come to him, which tlie frightened boy did. next visited The officer then questioned the boys about their places ol residence and they said that they lived at No. 214 East Twenty-fourth street, Chicago. The shrewd guardian of the law, how ever, tripped the boys by a few skillful questions and they then owned up to ! their residence and told how they came to be in Chicago. They were taken to the police station and the police depart ment of tins city was notified of their capture. Captain Kane, of the Wilmington po lice force, went to Chicago and brought tlie runaways to Wilmington and de livered the truants to their relatives, who "lovingly received them?" The hoys say there wasn't any fatted calf killed in honor of their return, and they are mad because tlie only part of Chicago that they got to see was the City Hall. D AMAGE SUITS.
