THE ONE CENT VOL. II. NO. 977. WILMINGTON, DELAWARE, SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 5,1898. County Chairman Neary opened the | meeting by introducing W. S. Alexander as the presiding officer. I Mr. Alexander at once entered upon his duties, and stepping to the front of the si age said he felt it an honor to be called upon to preside at » meeting of the Democratic party. He said that Amos Cummings, who was lo have been one of tlie speakers of the evening was unable td.be present, lie being needed in his iffcu Slate, New York. He then introduced Chairman John Biggs, of the Democratic State Central Committee. During his remarks he said: "Elec Chairman Biggs Claims That by Republican Misrule They Ruined the County. LARGE DEMOCRATIC MEETING William Baulsbury Talks on National and State Issues and Scores the Republican Administration In Unmeasured Terms-Promi nent Democrats Present. A good-sized audience was attracted to the Bijou Theatre last evening by a Democratic mass meeting, which was addressed by John Biggs and Willard Saulsbury. A short street parade was made in tiie early part of the evening. Among the Democrats seated on the stage were Countv Chairman Neary, W. S. Alexander, John Biggs, Willard Sauls bury, E. R. Cochran, Jr., Frank Em -1 mons and Thomas F. Armstrong tion day is the day of all days, for we, American citizens, whether rich or poor, we all stand the equal of every other man on that day. In touching on the tariff, he said: ' We must have money to run the Gov eminent. The easiest way to raise tins money is by the tariff. It is also the most convenient. Nobody will dispute that it is necessary to lay a tariff, and it is right to protect, as far as possible, our manufacturers. Blit it should stop when enough revenue has been produced. This system of taxation has been growing un til now we have tiie highest duties we have ever had. I am net speaking of the war Tariff, which was required dur ing the civil war, but the McKinley Tariff, passed July 27, 1897, in a time of peace. In touching .on the war question be said: "Mule drivers were used in nurs ing sick soldiers and horse doctors to prescribe. The conduct of tbe war officials should be examined into by a commission, the majority of whom are Democrats. Elect Handy to Congress and he'll act. Mr. Biggs continued: "Tlife Republi cans have not been in control of both branches of tne Legislature of this State for forty years and tha Democrats are responsible for the laws which have been enacted. They, the Democrats, have invested public funds to the amount of $544,742, which has been laid aside by the wise and far seeing Legislative branch of your Government for the pub lic schools. Of this sum $382,919 is in vested in bank stock and $101,750 in bonds. By the provisions of the present Constitution that sum of money is for ever to remain inviolate and untouched. The Republicans have never had con trol of this State, but judging by what they have done in Sussex county, it is to be hoped they never will. If you were to be called as a witness before the Levy Court of Sussex county you would be al lowed $1 a day while in attendance and six cents per mile. Y'ou would receive a certificate, and if it was for a $1 all you coaid get for it would be 50 cents. This is because tiie court is being controlled by thn Republicans. "Not long since, when iny duties called me to that county when we had a Democratic court and a Democratic clerk of the peace, a man w ho was paid his witness fee could get his certificate cashed for its face value. He concluded by paying tribute to the qualifications of Congressman Handy, and asked tiie Democrats to support him and the entire Democratic ticket on Tuesday next. , Willard Saulsbury, ex County Chairman, was then introduced. Mr. Saulsbury's address was devoted largely to a discussion of local and State affairs. He went over the field thorough ly and held the attention of his audi ence for about an hour. National topics were also discussed, including the recent war, and the part Delaware is playing in the settlement tlicre °" , , . t Mr. Saulsbury prefaced his re na ks with the statement that it has fallen to his lot in most of the pohtical campaigns of late years ter see that the Democratic forces were so drilled and organized that Republicans could not have an easy vie tory Our old leader, he said, is now no more, and his successor is serving his country in a foreign capital, consequent ly their duties fall upon the younger men Continuing, he said: "Wc have thought, until recently, that in our snug little State we were Bafe from those con ditions threatening our political happi ness which might obtain elsewhere, but unforseen combination of circumstances have bo contributed that the question is brought home to us witli the greatest force, whether we shall hereafter have a place fit for decent residence, political conditions considered—whether we are to be overwhelmed with the scum of political travel, which in these times seems to threaten the life of each com monwealth, no matter w'liat its past lias been." Then, proceeding on State and local lines,Mr.Saulsbury called attention to tiie fact that every two years in Delaware the people have the duty to perform of selecting law-makers and some of their executive officers, and stated that in the present campaign "It is for us to decide f Continued on page xwe.

Judges in Kent County Conrt Decide That He Gave Alfred Henry the Registration Fee. SENTENCED TO SIX MONTHS The Court's Decision In Full-Conyict cd Man Protests Innocence, Re fuses to Eat, He Will Appeal the Case to the Supreme Court. From a Staff Correspondent. Dover, Del., Nov. 4.—Rev. Charles G. Collins, colored, lias been found guilty of giving Alfred Henry, colored, $1 with which Henry paid his registration fee. The convicted man was sentenced to pay a fine of $1,000, serve six months in tiie county prison, and pay tiie costs of the prosecution. In addition to this punishment Rev. Collins is disfranchised for a period of ten years. The decision adjudging Collins guilty was handed down in the Court of Gen eral Sessions this morning, having the concurrence of all three Judges upon the bench, Chief Justice Lore and Judges Grubb and Pennewili. Opinion had been so widely divided on the result of the case that the de cision created surprise in some quarters, while it was thus expected by many. It was only after long and careful con sideration that the Court was able to render a verdict of guilty in Collins' case, and Chief Justice Lore so stated in his decision. The grave importance of this the first case under the new constitution, relating to intimidation of electors, in fluencing or financially aiding a man in getting registered or bribing voters, necessitated extreme care in weighing the evidence as adduced before the Court. The decision states that tiie Court not only heard tiie testimony in open court but went carefully over the stenographic report of the evidence, after which all three Judges were unable to arrive at any other conclusion except that Rev. Charles G. Collins is guilty of violating section 7 of article 5 of the new consti tution, which prohibits any person from giving, or causing to be given, a man $1, with which the latter may register and become a qualified elector. Nearly the entire bar of Kent county gathered before the court when Col lins was brought in by the Sheriff and told to stand up. In addressing him, Chief Justice Lore said: "Charles C. Collins, you are charged in the information now before us, with giving to one Alfred Henry, at South Murderkill hundred, in this county, $1, the amount of his registration fee; there by unlawfully using money, te influence him to be registered as a qualified elect or in the Eighth Election District of this comity on tiie seventeenth day of September last. "Your case has been heard bv the court, sitting under the new Constitution as Judges, both of tiie law and the facts, without the intervention of a jury. The testimony in the case has been heard by ns, not only in open court, but the of ficial stenographer's report thereof lias been carefully reviewed and examined by each of us. After the most thoughtful consideration, we have been unable to arrive at any other conclusion than that of your guilt. We therefore have all ad judged you to be guilty of the offense as charged against you in the information. We have reached this determination from the testimony before us, which only we may -onsider in such cases. "Mr. Smithers, have you anything to say why sentence should not be pro nounced against the prisoner?'' William T. Smithers, Esq., counsel for Collins, here arose and stated that lie had nothing to say as to why sentence should not he pronounced on the de fendant. Chief Justice Lore then continued: "Section 7, of Article 5, of the Consti tution, which went into effect June 10, 1897, relating to election bribery, under which this information was framed, de fines several of such offenses, among them the one with which you are charged. In order to adapt the penalty to tne offense in each particular case, the Constitution gives a liberal discre tion to tiie Court, ranging from a fine of not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five thousand dollars, or an imprisonment of not less than one month nor more than three years, or both fine and imprisonment at the dis cretion of the Court. "In this instance we will not impose the extreme penalty. You may have had no corrupt motive in giving Henry the money; you may have intended merely to furnish the money needed by him for his registration. But so jealous ly has the Constitution guarded the puri ty of elections that even such action is within its terms, and a just enforcement of its provisions even to that extent is necessary to prevent unlawful interfer ence with the freedom and the purity of elections in this State. "The Court has determined your sen tence, after giving the most charitable construction to your conduct. This is the first case under the new Constitution, and therefore one of great interest and importance. We take occasion now to phasize this point—that it is the in tention of the Court jealously to guard and vigorously to enforce the constitu tional provisions respecting elections to the end that hereafter free and equal elections may be had. "The sentence of the Court that you forfeit and pay a fine of $1,01)0; that you bo imprisoned for the term of six months; commencing on this dav and ending on the third day of May, 1899; that you pay the costs of the prosecution, and you are' now committed to the cus tody of the sheriff until this sentence is carried into execution." The Superior Court and Court of Gen was em eral ^Sessions then adjourned without de lay. . The convicted man, Rev. Charles G. Collins, still protests h<s innocence. Col lins lhabove the average colored man in point bf intellectual attainment. He is an ordained Methodist minister and Con yerses in quite an intelligent manner. He is not loud in his protest of in nocence, but simply states in a clear way that be did not give Henrv the dollar, and did not in any way indicate where Henry could find a dollar with which to get registered. Collins has been confined in the county prison since Wednesday, and during the entire time has eaten but one meal. From ipresent indications the man ap pears to be on the verge of insanity, caused by the worriment over his con dition. He said to-dav: recognized the condition of tlie race to which I belong, 1 have striven hard to acquire a good education and better my condition in this life as best I could. I had succeeded in acquiring at least the confidence of those with whom I have come it) contact when this awiul charge was brought against me. "If I was guilty I could he resigned to my fate, but being entirely innocent of this crime I fear that I cannot stand it and beljeve the infliction of this punish ment will drive me crazy.'' His jrefusal to cat, he claims, is prompted entirely to be a loss of desire to eat add inability to relish his food and his condition, it is feared, will become alarming. The -punishment of Collins under the new election law seems to convey the idea that the courts of the State are deter mined to lay the grounds for the dis couragement of intimidation and bribery of voters in Delaware. The precedent which the Court of Kent county has established is the talk of the entire county to-day, and though a greater part of the men of Kent county believe-Collins innocent, nevertheless, the codrse which the courts have laid out now is to be feared. An appeal will he taken to the Supreme Court of Delaware, and if the decision rendered to-day is upheld then the ap peal will be carried to the Supreme Court of the United States, where the constitutionality of the constitutional pro vision will be tested. The test will be made on that section of the Constitution which places the trial of these bribery cases in the hands of Judges without the interference of a jury. It was this section of the new Consti tution. which General John P. Donahoe, as a member of the Constitutional Con vention,did not sign, and it was on ac count cjf its adoption that General Donahoe refused to sign the new Con stitution. At the time of the adoption of this section Judge W. C. Spruance, then a member of the Constitutional Conven tion, declared that it was unconstitu tional. Collins will fight his case to the last. Ifavin always SECURED HIS PARDON. Statement of the Condition of Kemp skl In THE SUN Secures His Pardon and Release. The article appearing in The Sun of Tuesday last in reference to the pitiful case of Frank B. Kempski, of Company L, First Delaware Volunteers, has re sulted in his being pardoned by the War Department. Word to that effect was received by Horace Greeley Knowles this morning when the following letter w as received from Judge Advocate General G. M. Lieber of Washington: "I take pleasure in informing you that tiie Secretary of War lias remitted the unexecuted portion of tiie sentence in the Kempski case. The Adjutant-gen eral will now issue tiie necessary order. Kempski will be entitled to receive on his discharge a suit of civilian's clothes and $5 in money." The imprisonment of young Kempski at Governor's Island, New York, was not known until it appeared in Tue Sun and Mr. Knowles'took the paper to Washington with him with the result stated. Late last night Mr. Knowles received a letter stating that Kempski would be re leased this morning by orders of the 1'resident and that he would be sent home immediately. ARRESTS THREATENED.

ALMSHOUSE CASES HEARD A Number of Paupers Were Disquali fied and the Employes Were Reg istered-Ludicrous Scenes in Judge Spruance\s Court Yesterday. The cases of fourteen men residing at the almshouse were acted upon by Judge Spruance yesterday, in bearing appeals from the decisions made by the registra tion officers. They were brought before the court on the petition of James F. Mclvor, nomi nee for inspector in New Castle bun dred. Tiie right of the men to register was challenged. George W. Kay, Benjamin Holt, Wil ham F. Jordan, William J. Connor and Samuel Marshall were alleged to bo paupers and not entitled to a vote. Superintendent McCoy said they were onrecord as getting help from the county. Kay works on the almshouse farm but gels no money. The Judge struck them off as being'paupers. Edward Brown, who was admitted to the almshouse in November 29. 1804, but has for two years been on the pay roll at $14 a month as a kitchen hand, was qualified. Robert Cavanaugh was admitted July 9, 1894, but now gets $5 a month for tending cattle on the farm, was quali fled Peter T. Mattiiews, admitted May 1, 1897, gets $5 a month as a carpenter. He was qualified. l'eter McGlinchy and John M. Ziegler both get $1.50 a month as assistants in the hospital portion of the Almshouse, but the Judge said their work was not skilled service, and their names were striken off. Charles Moss and John Riley United Statefs pensioners, boarding at the Alms house, former paying $« and the latter $8 a month, were qualified. Samuel Comegys, admitted June 23, 1897, is residing at the Almshouse with his wife. He carries mail for the G»v ernment between Farnliurst station and the post office and gets $5 a month but pays nothing to the county. His name was stricken off. William Ruth was asked to be stricken off at the instance of William Morrison. He was admitted in 1895, and lodges at the common gate between the State Hos E ital and the Almshouse and provides is own clothes. He gets $6 a month from the State Hospital and board from the Almshouse for caring for the gate, as he understands it. He is also postmaster, giving a $1500 bond to the Government. He was qualified. A ludicrous incident occurred at the afternoon sessson. It occurred while the case of Edward Miller was being con sidered. gistrar Campbell said this man had him he lived in Delaware one year, Re told New Castle county four years, and the Fourth Election District of the Tenth six years. How lie could have lived in the Fourth District six years without having lived longer in the county than four years and the State more than one year was more than Judge Spruance or any one else could understand, but lie was quali fied. The name of George H. Hinson, of tlve Third Election District of the Thirteenth, was ordered stricken off tiie list. George Hooper was also stricken off from the Third Election District of tiie Thirteenth. In the cases of W. F. Jordan and Samuel Marshal there was a kind of a mix-up in tiie names. Jordan had been registered as W. L. Jordan and while in tiie appeal his name appeared as W. F. Jordan. Marshall was registered as James. The court allowed tiie corrections to be made on tiie books and they were quali fied.

He was also with the Major at Fort McHenry. He is 22 years old. Tiie man came back to New Castle in September. His father, William Lally said he had lived in the election district one month. Lally was ordered registered. Judge Spruance had some difficulty in finding out where Harvey Miller'B home really was. He iH a colored man, 22 years of age, and works for a Mr. McFarland in tiie Second Election District of tiie Tenth, but said if he was going borne be would go to his mother in Thorntown. He has a hairy birth mark on the left side of the face and it is said that lie registered with that side turned to the registrar. There was some doubt as lo bis age, but he looks his age fully, and was ordered registered. In tiie matter of Frank F. Bonsall, Registrar Shockley stated that Bonsall came to the Forty-second Election Dis trict with a transfer from the Thirty ninth of the Second, saying he had moved into this district on October 19, which would make the time too short and he*was turned down. An Unfounded Report. A report gained currency on tiie streets yesterday morning that the Wilmington City Railway Company had made ar rangements to lay tracks on West Ninth street at once, with a viow to running cars across town one way on Eighth street and in the opposite direction on Ninth.
