THE f ft ONE CENT WILMINGTON, DELAWARE, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 15,1898. VOL. II. NO. 987 Nets Being Gradaa'ly Wonnd Against Certain Inspectors of the Recent Election. L P ARRESTS IN THREE COUNTIES / Meu Will be Charged With Fraud, Defacing and Burning Ballots and Presenting Wrong Stamps to Voters—All Will be Vlg oronsly Prosecuted. Within a few days warrants will be issued for the Democratic Inspectors who on Tuesday last perpetrated a number of glaring frauds whilst in the performance of their duties as election officers. The reason that these men have not been arrested before, is that sufficient evidence had not been collected at the time. Since the election and counting of the returns, however, certain persons have j been busy weaving the net around the persons implicated ii and it is only now a matter of a few days before they will be brought before the bar of jrstice. Amongst those who will, it is said, be compelled to face a court and jury arc John Welsh, inspector of the Fourth dis trict of the First Representative district Wilmington hundred; Charles Dett | ling, also an inspector, and Clerk Mc I Dowell in the same Representative dis <f triet; the inspector oi the Twelfth Elec tion district of Wilmington; Inspector Morrison and Judge James Doris of the l Second district of New Castle hundred; Inspector John Cleaver of the Thirteenth n of Representative district, St. Georges hun II dred, and a number of others whose ' names have not as yet been divulged. All of these men it is alleged threw out ballots without any justification; burned others and also gave the wrong stamps in a number ef instances. The case of Frank Reiman, postmaster of Florence, a short distance from Smyrna, who is charged with bribery, is attracting some attention. Reiman, it is alleged, offered Harry Mattiford, Simon KiTlen, George Carter and two soldiers money to stay away from the polls. Other persons whose names could not be be ascertained, it is alleged, were . money to vote. I i Reiman was given a hearing before a Magistrate at Smyrna and held in $600 1 bail for court, Hon. John II. Hoffecker, Congressman-elect becoming his bail. I Both in Kent and Sussex counties it is | stated a number of arrests will be made | of Democratic and Republican inspectors I and all are of almost the same nature, I either bribery, burning ballots or pre I senting tiie wrong stamp to voters. THEY WANT LIGHT. The Street arid Sewer Department Fall to Fulfil Promises Made Citizens. * Tiie residents of this city want light and are tired of waiting for the spirit to move tiie Street and Sewer Department to act. For some time past the residents of Seventlr street near Orange, have been asking for an arc light at the corner of Seventh and Orange streets and com • plain of the complete darkncsB of that section. Seventlr street is one of the most im portant streets in tiie city and traffic on ■j that thoroughfare demands that the ' street bo properly lighted. There is an arc light at every corner of Orange street except at tiie above named corner, and despite their many promises to place a light at that point, the Street and Sewer Department has so far neg lected it. About two weeks ago a petition signed by every resident of this poorly lighted section'was placed before the* depart ment and favorably acted upon. No steps have been taken to meet the promise made and darkness still envel 1 opes the place at night. There are many places in tiie city in which lights are not ss essential, and one of them is tiie boulevard on which there are fully six arc lights beyond Washington street bridge when one of them could be well spared and placed to a good advantage at the corner of « Seventh and Orange streets where it is absolutely necessary for safety and the proper transaction of business.

He was unable to Suggest any remedy to the board for the falling off in the ap propriation. lost year the appropriation for New Castle county was divided among 113 districts, and this year it is divided among 138 districts. By last Legislature under tne general system of free schools the colored schools are to share the appropriation with the other echo Is, each getting an equal •meant. The colored schools, 25 districts, will share in the fund to the extent of nearly $6,000, and two-fifths from this sum wifi come off the city's share. It is estimated that the city will receive $5,436 less ttian last year. The amount from equal division in 17 districts is $2,550; snare of balance, $164.70; share due colored schools in Wilmin amount an act of the Eton, $2,923.35, making the total in city $21,943.67.

There was no corresponding increase in the appropriation in proportion to the increase of districts and one of the mem bers of the Board remarked that it would be in order to ask the next Legislature to increase the appropriation. It is likely that a legislative committee will be ap pointed. There was quite a wrangle between the members as to the closing of the schools on Friday, November 25.

The troubles of J. Miller Thomas and the Peninsula Methodist have been fairly well ventilated in the local courts ana another chapter was introduced in Mag istrate Daley's office yesterday when Peter L. Cooper, Jr., executed a writ cf foreign attachment against Emma V. Thomas. It seems that Miller Thomas had trans ferred his property, No. 604 Market street, to his sister Emma V, Thomas sometime ago for a nominal considera tion, subject to a large mortgage held by the Pbnn Mutual Insurance Company of Philadelphia. She then rented the building to tier brother for use as a printing establishment and stationery store. He went into her debt for rent to the amount of $1,600 and' she sued him to recover before Magistrate Kelley. Peter L. Cooper, Jr., acted as her at torney and when Constable Green sold the printing materials, he bought them in for Emma Taomas and rendered her a bill for $150 for the service. She paid a small amount on account leaving a balance due him of $118.41. Thomas gave Mr. Co per possession of the chattels he had bought in for her as' security for the payment of this claim and the goods remained in the building, No. 604 Market street, until yesterday when Miss Thomas attempted to have them removed without first obtaining the consent of Mr. Cooper or paying the sum due him. Mr. Cooper at once ex ecuted the attachment and holds the plant pending settlement. Tiie Miller Thomas property the most desirable places in iss is one of the city. Mr. Thomas was offered $25,000 for tiie property and plant bv a syndicate backed by J. Edward Addicks, who wanted the place for a newspaper office. Ex-Mayor Wi'ley and Mr. George W. Roberts were interested in the enterprise with Mr. Addicks and other gentlemen, but the ridiculous price asked for tiie place by Mr. Thomas scared off the syndicate, and Messrs. Addicks, Willey and Roberts abandoned the idea of estab lishing a newspaper in Wilmington. The Sun offered $20,000 for the plant and property a year ago, but Mr. Thomas stilt held to his absurd price, and the matter was dropped. The street front of tiie property is now occupied by Fahy & Co., furriers, and Miss Thomas uses tiie upper floors for storing her printing plant. READY FOR MUSTERING OUT.

A Sad Affliction. Mr. and Mrs. William Baxter, of No. 502 West Eleventh street, lost their sec ond child from diphtheria yesterday morning. His name was George and he was 3 years old.

COTTON TAILS ARE PLENTIFUL Game of All Kinds Said lo Abound In Kent and Sussex Counties. The Advance Guard of Gunners Left Here ljate Yesterday. Game will be slaughtered to-day and the fact that tl.e time when the laws of j our State permit the gunner to kill the I game has arrived, is apparent by the number of local sportsmen* who left this city yesterday for the game preserves in the two lower counties of our State. If the number of gunners is any indi cation, game Bhould be slaughtered in abundance. Over the Delaware division of the F., j W. & B. Railroad there were fully 100 lovers of this sport who left this city yes terday afternoon for the rural districts where the cotton-tail and members qf the feathered tribe abounds. On the 4.27 o'clock train 82 gunners and- 30 dogs took passage and on the mid-night tram there was a party of 20 more. This great outpouring of sportsmen from our city is accounted for by the many reports that there is plenty of game in Kent and Sussex counties. It is said that the number of birds and rabbits that are around this season is far beyond that of any seasun in recent yeare. The Wilmington lovers of the pastime have been preparing for several weeks for the coming gunning season and many of them will be away from the city until the close of the season which will be on December 31. Dogs of ail descriptions are being used and many fancy prices have been paid by amateur sportsmeu for dogs that are practically no earthly use whatever ex cept as guard dogs. One poor ignorant fellow purchased a sky terrior thinking he was rabbit dog. Gunning exploits will be the order of the day on the gunner's return, and many of the birds brought to this city will be shot with silver bullets, or, in other words, bought from men who are capable of and who make a busi ness of killing game to sell to citv gun ners. Notwithstanding the many birds and rabbitB that have been slaughtered be fore the law was out there is still plenty to be found. While Kent county has many birds and an abundance of rabbits, squirrels, etc., it is considered far inferior gunning place to Sussex county and numbers of Wilmington sportsmen will do their gunning in the land of pork and johnny cakes, where birds and rabbits are to be found almost at the farm-house doors. Several well-known railroad men have joined the mighty army of buteners and shoulder their guns with the greatest confidence that they will come back laden with spoils of the hunt. W. J. Daniels, extra conductor on the B. & O. Railroad, has gone to Townsend, his former home, and with him he took his dog and gun with a plentiful supply of ammunition. Unless he lias exceed ingly good luck many friends to whom he has promised rabbits, etc., will be sorely disappointed. George B. Chambers, a popular engi neer on the Delaware road, has gone to Queen Anne county to gun for five days. Mr. Chambers 1ms a reputation which his friends feel sure lie will not fail to maintain. The down-state gunners will also turn out in force to-day and ttic crack of the many guns in the war w ith Spain will pale into insignificance when compared to tiie booming of the weapons and whistling of the deadly missiles of the many ramrods in the lower counties of this State. cf V. by of a to at a of as' iss buying a of of & as a To lie Burled at Reading.
