Special Dispatch to The Sun.
Dover, Del., Nov. 7.—There was con
siderable excitement in Dover this after
noon when it became noised around
that Joshua Parker, colored, one of the
recognized leaders among the colored
voters of Kent county, had been arrestM
on the charge of bribing a voter to re
main away from the polis to-morrow.
Enos C. Hickey, a white man, was iiis
accuser, and knows that Parker had
offered him $10 to dig ditches on his
(Parker's) farm to-morrow.
At the hearing Parker promptly gave
bail, ex-Sheriff John McDaniel, a Demo
crat, going on his bond.
Directly after Parker's arrest and re
lease the constables brought in Alex
ander Tillman, another colored man,
horn North Murderkill. Tillman wuh
charged with bribing a fellow colored
man to register. In this case also bail
promptly furnished, and Tillman,
like Par ker, walked out a free man to
cast his ballot to-morrow.
This bailing business, evidently, was a
phase of the game the Democrats had
not counted on, and, though it is said
they hud affidavits filed for other arrests,
they quit short off, and thus one of their
plans, the locking up of voters, fell
flat.
was
Hardly had Tillman's case been fixed
when tiie Rev. Charles G. Collins, tlie
colored preacher, who was adjudged
guilty of bribery last week and sentenced
by tlie Judges, also walked a free
man. A writ of liabeas corpus had been
sworn out and Judge Pennewill ordered
his release on bail, pending an appeal to
the Supreme Court of Delaware.
Twelve hundred dollars bail was de
manded, and six men representing prop
erty worth one hundred and fifty thou
sand dollars went on his bond. They are
Paris T. Carlisle, Jr., John,!. Connor,
Samuel E.Saxton,Joseph Frazier,William
E. Davis, William M. Prouse. These are
all men of the highest standing and they
all openly say that no one believes Col
lins guilty. All feel assured the charge
was trumped up for effect by the Demo
crats, but it has proved a boomerang.
The colored element all over the coun
ty are afire, and colored voters whom
the Democrats might have manipulated
a week ago will go dead against them to
morrow.
The arrests of Parker and Tillman has
intensified this feeling, and respectable
conservative Democrats are also express
ing their disgust at what they term
damnable outrages.
Chairman Alleeistbe most enthusias
tic man in town to-night. He says the
county is Republican and all the trickery
the Democracy is capable of cannot

One point the Republicans here desire
The Sun to make plain; that is no chal
lenges can to-morrow deprive a voter of
his vote, if the challenged party if will
ing to make affidavit that the charge is
not true.
it is rumored here to-night that a
scheme is to be worked by the Democrats
to bluff colored voters by claiming that a
challenger can make affidavit and tlie
voter then lias no say. Tlie law is plain;
the oath of the challenged party is con
clusive.
Thirty-five Pinkerton men came down
tlie Delaware road to-night and they
have been detailed to every voting pre
cinct in tlie county. Those who arrived
at Dover scattered immediately to their
posts. A squad also went to Sussex.
These men are all in tlie employ of the
Union Republican party.
A Midnight Alarm.
At midnight Chairman Neary put on
foot a project to put Democratic Peace
Officers at tlie polls, notwithstanding his
agreement not to do so. If lie persists in
carrying out this scheme Sheriff Flinn
will swear in Republican Deputies and
riots are almost sure to result.
There are 100 Pinkertons in the State
now and so long as only the local police
appear at the polls nothing will bo done
by tlie detectives.
In tlie event of rioting they will prove
powerful'aids to tlie local police.
If there is a riot tlie blame will he

The Second Dastardly Attack
Upon lion. George
Gray Appears.
SIGNATURES ARE PURE FAKES
Here is the Full Text <>1' a Malicious
Publication Inspired and Is
sued for the Sole Purpose
of Making a New Cam
paign Issue.
Following close upon Jeiomc Bell's
dastardly attack upon George Gray cc mes
a second and, if possible, a more in
genious bit of political deviltry.
This second attack takes the form of a
circular which includes a letter signed
"J. S. Bowtell," and "Hiram J. Clark"
is the name of the "clerk" who appar
ently fathers the circular.
Here is a complete copy of the circular:
Honest Democrats.
The Traitors of '90 are again at work!
Fellow Democrats of Sussex County:
The Delaware Gold Bug Organization of
1890, which placed young Bayard in the
field against L. Irving Handy, and voted
for Fanner and Buckner against William
Jennings Bryan and Sewell, our candi
dates, is again at work.
They have never lost their organiza
tion, "and are yet acting under the con
trol of the so called "National Demo
cratic Sound Money Party." Orders
have been issued by the National
Organization to the members everywhere
to work for the defeat of every Congres
sional, candidate known to be in favor
of the free coinage of silver. In proof of
this the Associated Press dispatches pub
lished in all the papers only a week ago
stated that General Palmer, the "Sound
Money" candidate for President, had
announced that in his district he will
vote for the Republican eandidale for
Congress, because the Democratic candi
date "is a Free Silver man." and the
executive committee of the National
Sound Money Democratic party, as they
call themselves, have issued private ap
peals to their followers all over the
country to do the same, their motto is,
"Cut every Free Silver Democrat and
vote for Sound Money Republicans in
their stead."
Fellow Democrats, this is their scheme:
We will cut L. Irving Handy, and also
every legislative candidate known to fct
in favor of a free silver United States
Senator. Their orders are to retain
George Gray, who aided to defeat us in
1896, and whose son was the leader of
the gold-bug bolt in Delaware. Now,
men, shall we let these 800 gold bugs
rule us? Shall we train in like whipped
curs and vote for their George Gray can
didates, or shall we act like men? Show
these traitors and their tools that the
Democrats of Sussex are not to be hood
winked or led by the men who stabbed
us in 1800.
In the name of the Chicago platform
let us cut the tools of these men who
ttnocmtic tteke
If the Republican' President, whom
they helped to elect, wants George Gray
returned to the United States Senate,
«!»'»■"» •*" *
' ole ''
We Democrats of New Castle county
who voted for Bryan in 1896, against
these traitors, will not now sink our own
principles at the request of George Gray's
leaders, and vote for their men while
they cut our own Congressional nomi
nee, L. Irving Handy, to elect the Re
publican gold bug John II. Iloffecker.
We will show them two can play at that
game, and we will cut every George
Gray legislative candidate in New Castle
county. Men of Kent will stand by us,
and we believe the true Democracy of
.Sussex will also.
Tlie following letter has been secretly
sent to every gold bug Democrat in Dela
ware. Ask'William Ross, candidate for
State Treasurer, orcx-Governor Stockley,
both of whom went to Indianapolis two
years ago and helped to nominate
Palmer and Buckner, to deny it, ask any
gold bug you know to deny it. Here is
the letter.
Headquarters Delaware Branch National
Democratic Sound Money Party.
Wilmington, Del., October 30, '98.
My Deak Sir: Tlie Free Silver craze is
as rampant as ever. It will show its
liydrajtiead in the next Congress if
enough men are sent there to maze it an
issue; you know they had nearly enougli
strengtli in the last Senate to carry out
their fantical ideal. Vigilance is de
manded. Two years ago we voted for a
principle in Delaware. On November 8
we must do the same.' It is principles,
not.men, with us now, as it was then; no
party lines must stand in the way of the
performance of our duty; this fantical
craze must be defeated at all hazards.
Remember your duty. We voted against
Bryan, Sewell and Handy in 1896; we
must vote against Handy and eyery Free
Silver candidate now on tlie Democratic
ticket in Delaware. George Gray and
John H. Iloffecker are Sound Money
men. Your duty is plain; perform it as
you did in '96.
Yours,
J. S. Bowtei.l,
Executive Committee.
Again we say, let any gold-bug deny
that he received this letter.
Yours for the platform adopted at
Chicago,
Fellow Democrats of New Castle
County,
Hiram J. Clark., Clerk.
A careful investigation fails to locate
either Bowtell or Clark, it has been
suggested thqt the "Bowtell" is intended
to convey the impression to the casual
reader of Mr. Rossell, who was identified
with the Democratic gold forces in this
county. Clark is absolutely a fake. There
is no such a person in Wilmington and
it is a certainty that John S. Rossell
could not and "would not be a party to
any such proposition. In no possible
way could lib be connected with'it and
the very far-removed Bimilarity in names
ia merely a clue to the aim of the scoun
drel who inspired the circular.
This is but one of the many desperate
and cowardly means adapted to bring
about the defeat of Mr. Gray.

BIG VOTE FOR HOFEECKER
Interviews With Dr. George W. Mar
shall and Other Leaders in Old
Kent by a Staff Correspond
ent Who Reports Them
Accurately.
From a SUIT Correspondent.
Mii.ford, Nov. 7.—There is a great
deal of speculation here to-night as to
the results of to-morrow's voting in the
quiet little town of Milford. The major
ity of the citizens who were i nterviewed
to-day were of the opinion that the
Union Republican ticket would be the
winner.
Some of the leading Democrats thought,
there was a possibility of Democratic
success, but confidentially admitted that
the outlook is poor for Democratic vic
tory.
It is estimated that there are one hun
dred and fifty floaters in this place.
There was a Democratic mass meet
ing at the Central Hotel to-night. Hon.
John W. Causey, ex-Congressman, was
chosen chairman.
John D. Hawkins, chairman of the
Democratic Executive County Commit
tee, Congressman L. Irving Handy and
Hon. William F. Causey, were thespeak
Mr. Causey spoke on the provisions of
the new Constitution, and urged that the
election be conducted strictly according
to law. He spoke feelingly on the sub
ject of vote buying by both parties, and
hoped that the day would be close at
hand when it would be thoroughly
eliminated from every election in Dela
ers.
ware.
Mr. Causey made no personal charges
in his address. Speaking on the situation
he said: "I think on a square, honest
vote that the Democrats will carry tlie
county."
Ex-Congressman John W. Causey in
an interview said:
"I have nothing to say in regards to
tlie situation, excepting that the Demo
crats are going to hold tlie election
strictly according to the new Constitu
tion and that they are not going to use
any money, and if the Republicans will
do likewise I feel confident of Demo
cratic success."
Dr. Marshall, Chairman of the Union
Republican County Executive Commit
tee, in speaking of "the situation said:
"It is going to be a close battle on the
county ticket in Kent, but we will win,
and believe we are absolutely certain to
carry six (6) election districts electing
six (6) members to the General Assem
bly, and that there are potentialities of
electing five (5) more from Kent.
The Democrats concede in the State
ten (10) members to the General As
sembly from New Castle county, six (6)
from Kent, seven (7) from Sussex, mak
ing atotal of twenty-three (23) absolutely
sure for the Republicans.
There are within the State eighteen
(18) members of the General Assembly
whose election majorities will range
from two (2) to twenty-five (25).
Out of these eighteen (18) exceedingly
doubtful Districts the Union Republi
cans ought to be able to get four (4),
which will give them twenty-seven (27)
members in the Legislature on joint bal
lot which is majority and will enable
them to elect the next United States
Senator from Delaware.
Having once caught the rabbit with
tlie twenty-seven (27) votes the Union
Republican party will discuss how the
rabbit shall be cooked.
Tlie Union Republicans have tlie
colored vote almost solid.
Hon. S. John Abbott, the Union Re
publican candidate for State Senator from
the Fifth Senatorial District, in discus
sing the situation said:
"Everything in the Fifth Senatorial
District is in as good a condition as pos
sible, and nothing can turn the tide for
the Democrats except a barrel of money.
I feel confident of being elected by the
usual majority, and expect nothing but a
peaceful election."
Mr. Abbott is one of Milford's leading
busincs men, and has conducted his
campaign without the use of a copcer.
A betting man of Milford, widely
known through Delaware as a man who
can size up political situations, says:
"Iloffecker will win in New Castle
two hundred majority (200). In Kent
bv one hundred majority (100)."
'Dr. Pleasanton, candidate for Demo
cratic Senator from the Fifth (5) Sena
torial District, when interviewed said:
"1 have nothing to say whatever
about the election. To-morrow will tell
the tale."
When asked whether he thought that
Democrats would carry Kent county,
said:
"I don't know. Tlie Republicans
usually have 200 to 300 majority out of
the 1,800 votes cast, but if they win this
time it will not be by nearly as large a
majority."
"Jr." lias been added to the name of
Mark L. Davis, the candidate fotRepre
sentative on the Union RepiRfiican
ticket. The Republican ticket giveS his
name correctly, and men were sent out
today instructing all persons voting for
Mr. Davis to do so on the Republican
ticket.
This will save all of Mr. Davis' votes.
Mark Davis, father of Mark L. Davis,
speaking of I'nion Republican outlook
said:
by
"I feel sure the Union Republicans
will win. The only thing I am afraid of
is the floaters."
The Democrats propose to challenge
a great many voters. The Repub
licans think it is a scheme to delay so
many at the polls that it will give time
to close the booths before a lot can have
a chance to vote.

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 be
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

All of the candidates for office on the
Democratic ticket are entitled to the

Each and every one of them, from Han

the men who are candidates for the Gen
