Burton late yesteiday afternoon withdrew his protest 1 the election of Franklin C. Maull, crat, as State Senator in tlie Fifth Sena torial district in Sussex county, and, as a result, the next Stale Senate will be Democratic by a majority of one, that body standing nine Democrats to eight Republicans. No reason was assigned for tlie with drawal of Dr. Burton other than ids acknowledgement that be was de feated. Whilst the Republicans will have con trol of the next Legislature, their actions are likely to be hampered to a certain extent by the Democratic Senate, and tlie probabilities are that the bills they want passed by the next General Assemblv wilt meet with anything but approval by the State Senate and Governor Ebe \\ . Tunnell. Following is the personnel of the next General Assembly: mst mo STATE senators. New Castle County—First district,Sam uel M. Knox, R.; Second, John Pyle, D. (holds over)-; Third, Webster J.

Hushebeck, in tlie Tenth Representative district, New i Castle county, and James L. Conaway, I in tlie Fiftli Representative district of Sussex. The w ithdrawal of Dr. Burton does not in any way conflict with the election of a Republican United States Senator to succeed tlie Hon. George II. Gray. Old Timekeeper Resigns. Charles If.

Bat Aside to Allow People to Give Theeke fbr Dleasing. Received. Special Dispatch to Tar Bint. Dover, Del., Nov. 12.—Governor Tun nel! to-day iaaoed the following pro clamation for the observance of Thanks giving Day: Tns State or Delaware, Executive Department. Another year in our history is drawing to a close, a memorable year in annals of war and of peace. '1 he hand of the Re public has been lifted to smite the op pressor of a weak and struggling people, longing for the freedom which we enjoy ia of which we are so glorious an exponent. Victory has lowed by peace. Deeds of daring, un surpassed bravery, and indomitable courage have demonstrated that ttie Are of patriotism and heroic sacrifice still burn in the breasts of onr peop'e with all the glow of revolutionary days. Sons of all sections responded to the bugle call, and, forgetting past differences and animosities, stood should to shoulder in the common cause of a united country, On those who remained at home, bounteous nature lias bestowed many favors. We have been permitted to en joy the broadest measure of prosperity, plenty and happiness, whicl is t he her itage of an enlightened and industrious people. All these blessings come from God, whose hand lias guided us in the iiour of darkness, uplifted us wtien we stumbled, and protected us through a century of national greatness. It is "The Lord mighty in battle," it is "The Lord of Hosts, wonderlu! in counsel and excellent in working," who has led "Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord." Is is therefore roost fitting that we as a God-fearing people, recognizing our weakness and un worthiness, should in a becoming manner render thanks to God for bis great goodness to us in the past year. Therefore, I, Ebe W. Tunnel!, Gov ernor of the State of Delaware, in ac cordance with our custom, do appoint Thursday, the twenty-fourth day of November, as a day o' Thanksgiving, and request that on that day all secular avocations and amusements be laid aside and that wo reverently render thanks unto God for His love and care of us in th i past, and invoke His aid that the coming year may be one of material and moral growth, and that peace, pros perity and contentment may ever abide with us. n fol US. In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Delaware to be af fixed at Dover, this seventh day of November in the [l. s.] year of our Lord one thou sand eight hundred and ninety-eight and of the In dependence of the United States the one hundred and twenty-third.
