The Executive Committee of the Regu
lar and Union Republicans, of New
Cattle county, will hold a meeting on
Wednesday or Thursday of this week for
the purpose of taking definite action
against the inspectors of elections and
other officers who perpetrated frauds at
the recent election.
The committee now has eight cases to
consider and the probabilities arc that
warrants will be sworn out for the arrest
of the Democratic inspectors who violat
ed the election laws, immediately after
the close of the meetiug.
„ ,. .. .
Encouraged by the result of the re
cent election m their district, th® Demo
crats of the Third Senatorial district of
New Castle countv, comprising Brandy
wine and a portion of Christiana hun
dreds, proposo to organize a Democratic
club. The normal Republican majority
in tins district was heavily cut into on
election day, and had Democrats in
other districts done as well, the election
would have resulted differently in county
and State.
. .
Tho interest in the United States
Senatorship continues to increase
and whilst no new developments
have come to light in the past twenty
four hours both Democrats and Republi
cans can be seen on almost every square
uiscussmg the outlo >k and offering bets
on 1 he probable outcome when the next
General Assembly convenes.
I he possible result, as stated in Tim
bex of yesterday, was freely discussed
and concensus of opinion amongst con
servatiye people was that it was in all
probability correct.

The coming session of the Legislature '
and its proposed work is the chief |
thought of the politicians. The session ,
of this Legislature will vary a great deal |
from those of past General Assemblies, :
inasmuch as the new Constitution pro- 1
vides that only sixty days alia I be con
sumed by the legislators in making and
revising tne Kate's law. Inia provision 1
has met with general approval. In
speaking of the coming session the Dover !
State Sentinel says:
* 'It will be well for every one having
a direct interest in the coining Legisla
tore, to take immediate steps toward
making due preparation for contein
plated business. Tt will be remembered
that the session wili not extend beyond
sixty days. At• least that.is tlie content- j
plation of tho Constitution, and, if ex- i
tended beyond that time, it must be at
the sacrifice of the members in time and :
The Democrats of this district propose
to keep up their work during the
interim between now and the next elec
tion, and as a means of doing this most
effectively will form themselves into a
Democratic club. Leading Democrats of
the district have expressed themselves as
heartily in favor of the movement, and a
meeting for preliminary organization
will be held in a short time.
money. , . .
''Hitherto there has been no limit as
to time, and the result has been that i
many, very many days were spent in ,
list'ess, profitless idleness. T lit? mem
bers seemed to consider that as there
was no limit as to time, there need be
none as to money. Those whose duty it
was, failed to prepare the business for
the session, and there was nothing to do
- but the pay went on. The session was
extended, the members bad a good easy
time, and tbe treasury of tbe State suf
fered; and very frequently it happened,
that very little was accomplished for the ;
general good. This course lias brought
the members tbe condemna
tion i'f the people. In large part, they
have deserved it. They had it in their
it to the session. If
the.business was not presented within
reasonable time, it was their dutv to ad

Legislature, so that afl Soon ns the two
hous-is are organized the work of the

session will be one of business; active, !
industrious, hustling business. There |
will be no time for junketing tours and
other kill-time schemes, tbe expense of
which the people have heretofore been '
compelled to pay for. Sixty days fora
Delaware lA-gislature sounds oddly, to !
be sure; blit sixty days honestly devoted 1
to industrious work will probably be j
found ample, for the accomplishment of
all needed legislation But there will be 1
no time to waste."
Tbe. Dover correspondent of the Jlulli
more Sun laid the following in yesterday's
issue of that paper in reference to Hon.
George Gray's probable re-election:
A combination which has been talked
of is one between the Regular Republi
cans, led by Colonel do Pont, and the j
Dernocrats. Jly this coalition Mr. Gray
could be returned to the Senate. Such a
moviouent is on foot, and many persons
ray that the feeling of hatred is*so strong !
between the Addicksites and the liegu i
lars that the Regulars may prefer to see
Mr. Gray rc-Cicctod rather than stir
render to Mr.'Addicks.
lix all
power t<
Certain .'persons aic
troubled about the disposal of the few
offices which are within the gift of the
Republican party. One tiling isjeertain;
that the number and character of these
offices are not worth fighting about and
tlm great mass of Republicans care very
little about them. AU the great mass
desire is plenty of work and fair wages.
They wish to see improvement in every
department, factories and mills running
on full time, rivers and harbors im
proved, new railroads being built, and
everything moving forward. Then the
great mass will be happy and contented,
and will not care a fig about the offices
or those who are so fortunate as to get
them. —Daily Republican.
How would it do for the Regular Re
publicans to show their independence of
Addicks by combining with the Demo
crats to organize the House? We be
lieve that unless they do something of
that kind the recognition which they
rece ; ve f rom t i, e Addicksites will be in
ac jequate and unsatisfactory. The com
biri " tion betwcen tbc Regulars and the
j) eniocra t 8 j n the organization of the
(■ onat jtutional Convention worked satie
ac torily and was mutually beneficial.—
Evening Journal.
The ballot of Delaware should be sim
lified so that no voter should or could
y any manner of means of dishonest
election officers be deprived of bis vote
(on the day of election). The simpler
the ballot the better. The Australian
ballot has been tried and found deficient
in Delaware. The Democratic party,
which invented it, when it was put into
force thought they had adopte
that would disfranchise hundreds of
Republicans and keep the State solid
Democratic for all time to come. But
they have awakened to the fact that they
have been fooled even worse than the
party they had for years been counting
out at the polls, election after election,
The new Constitution was one step
towards an honest count even if a dis
dishonest ballot was used. The marking
of the ballot was another one of the
schemes whereby dishonest election
officers could refuse to count the ballots
after they had been honestly and proper
y voted. But even in this game which
worked in some instances to the gain ol
the Democratic party failed, they then
found fault with the judges opening the
ballot boxes in cases of dispute and re
counting the votes and passing judgment
upon the validity of the ballots which
had been thrown out by the election
officers selected for that purpose. It
looks now as if several of these rascally
inspectors and election officers would be
punished for the part they took in try-,
ing to overcome Repubbean majornies
in several districts and thereby count in
the Democratic candidates. The day of
reckoning lias corue at last for the men
who have polluted the ballot boxes and
turned our elections into mere farces. All
the Republicans of Delaware ask for is
an honest ballot and a fair count .—Daily

Men may give reasons and reasons for
tlie defeat of the Democratic party
Delaware this fall but the floating and
purchasable voter is chiefly responsible
for tbe somersault. For more than
year the Republican leaders and heneb
men have eeen circulating the lie that
the last Democratic Ixigislaluro enacted
the present registration and anti-bribery
laws. All this fall the Republican finis
saries went from house to house in the
two lower counties telling tbe pnrclias
able voter that be bad been robbed
his vote selling fee by legislation enacted
by Democrats and the blame should
laid at tbe feet of Democrats. This was
done solely to prejudice the purchasable
vote against the Democratic party and
win it for the Republican. They went
further and.tonl these same purchasable
voters that if the Republican party wits
successful in carrying the election and
electing a R -puhlican Legislature this
fall, the Republicans would repeal all the
present (obnoxious?) registration and
anti-bribery laws, and give the voter
chance to sell his vote as was his wont
under the old regime.
This last promise is the knife that will
cut the throats of the Republican party
two years hence. These Republicans
lied, but what did tbe henchmen of Ad
dicks care so long as t hey were coining
votes by tbe deception ?
The fact of the matter is, tbe present
registration and anti-bri ery laws were
enacted by the late bi-partisan Constitu
tional Convention, the Democratic Legis
lature being in no way responsible for
the enactment. They will not and can-j
