KENNEY'S STATEMENTS FALSE Government Shows That.He Received fi Retainer From Bay State Can Company—Stirring Scene os the Case Drew to a Close. * All that remains in the case of tlie B United States against Richard U. Kenney |V is the argument of counsel and the jH charge to the jury. The last hour of taking testimony ^Bbristled witli sensational features. Levi j^Bp. Bird, of counsel for tlie defense, in SBBulted the Court and disgraced himself f^Kid offered an insult to District Attorney I'^Bandegrift. Wt Aside from this startling occurrence ^Be Government produced undeniable ^Kcumentary evidence which showed SggBiat Senator Kenney had testified falsely .BBhen he Baid in giving his story that he IflBad never received a retainer from the IBBbv State Gas Company, of Delaware, » legal services rendered. >tjB District Attorney Vandegrift sprung f*his evidence in tlie way of a surprise to Hie defense. Its startling disclosure that 5^Kenney had falsified his statements on j^Bbe witness stand, proved such a fatal j^Hlow to Senator Kenney's defense that ^Kone of his counsel, Mr. Bird, became ^Hngry, lost his self-control and entered Hn a tirade of abuse directed to Mr. S^BVandegrift and finally culminated in an ^Huulting remark to the Court. aK In his testimony given on Friday Sen ^Hator Kenney said that he never received from the Bay Stale Gas Company of ■ Delaware a retainer for legal services ren B dered. r During the calling of Government's ■ witnesses in rebuttal, District Attorney I Vandegrift called to the stand Mr. Wil I liam H. Miller, treasurer of tlie Bay k State Gas Company. In reply to Mr. v Vandegrift's question Mr. Miller pro I' duced a voucher of the Bay State Gas I Company. I He handed it to Mr. Vandegrift, who, I by the witness showed it to be a bill H rendered by Richard R. Kenney to tlie ft Bay State Gas Company for legal ser if; f Vies. Attached to tlie bill was the re K Ceipt, signed by Richard R. Kenney on ■ Njly 1, 1896, for 300 shareB of the Bay I State Gas stock, amounting in all to k 13,000. The bill made out by Mr. Ken ( ney stated that, the period over which El his services extended was one year, w The bill was marked approved by tlie B executive committee of tlie company. ■ The voucher was admitted in evidence. B In view of the fact that Senator Ken K ney had stated in liis testimony under Br oatli that he had never been counsel for 1 the Bay State Gas Company and had | never received a retainer from the com pany, this evidence created quite a stir ' the court room. In answer to the damaging document, Mr. Kenney went on the stand and Mr. Bird asked iiim to explain of what tlie legal services which his bill rendered,tlie Bay State Gas Company, consisted. District Attorney Vandegrift there with objected and it was at this point that Mr. Bird created the scene in court. Mr. Vandegrift held that the bill and receipt for the retainer from tlie com pany made out and signed by Mr. Ken ney himself needed no explanation. That it was utterly impossible for Mr. Kenney to contradict the document, and it was evidently for that purpose that he was placed on the stand. Levi C. Bird then arose and demanded that he be given the right to ask Mr. Kenney the question. Mr. Bird said the legal services hod been rendered the president of tlie Bay State Gas Company. "The objection to this question," said Mr. Bird, "is the baldest attempt on the part of this man (meaning Mr. Vande , grift] to misrepresent a man, that I ever r saw." "What do you mean?" asked Mr. Vandegrift of Mr. Bird. "I mean you," replied Mr. Bird, "you vourself know that in representing that ; the legal services were rendered this company, you are not representing what is true. You know that it was other With this insulting remark, Mr. Bird, red in the face and glaring wildly, sat dewn. i f District Attorney Vandegrift with the L coolness and deliberation which char I acterizcs the man, arose and addressing L the Court, said: k "If the Court please, this gentleman K (meaning Bird) and I hope always to be able to applv tnat appellation to him, L has accused'me of trying to misrepresent F , the defendant in this case. The bill and receipt given by Mr. Kenney of which I knew nothing until yesterday, I have produced here to contradict the state ment made by Mr. Kenney that he never received a retainer irom tlie Bay State Gas Company for legal services. I knew nothing of which the counsel says, I only knew that what the document cer tifies. in # "I am not aware that the legal services were not rendered to the company, and . yet one of the counsel for this defendant has the temerity to say that I know that which I have produced as evidence against the defendant is otherwise. Let me say that I have been fair and honest in this case. I have no interest in the decision of the jury. I am here to do my duty and my duty will be done .'»•■ At the close of Mr. Vandegrift's re marks tliqre was a stir in the large crowd present and a muffled applause, such as •tamping of feet and clapping of bands threatening to grow louder only for the intervention of the Court. Mr. Bird jumping up declared that tl e evidence should be admitted and said: "jlthiaevidenc^snotadmitteiM^ill Continued on Page Two. ■».

PROPERTY OWNERS TO BLAME This Is the Claim Made by the Street and Sewer 'Depart inent...New York Dredging Company Agrees to Conditions Made. Tlie matter of small streets which are laid out by property owners for their own benefit and then presented to the city to be kept in repair by it, was dis cussed at the meeting of the Street and Sewer Department last night. The dis cussion was precipitated by a communi cation whicli was received from G. W. Bush. The communication read as follows: "I was surprised to learn that the deed of Conrad street which was made to the city some years ago has not been for mally accepted. If I am not mistaken, it was understood before the deed was made that it would be accepted by the department; but it was pro looked. If satisfactory to the Board, I would be obliged if favorable action is taken upon it." Conrad street is situated between Lin coln and Union, and Second and Third, and is forty feet in width. Director Simmons said the small streets were of no particular benefit to the city. They are laid out by property owners for their own special benefit, and the director as serted that they should be put in good condition before they are passed over to the city. Extra revenue is required to keep them in repair and no particular benefit derived Director over also spoke against the indiscriminate acceptance of small streets. He said the property owner or owners who laid out the streets derived tlie first benefit. He jokingly remarked that if a certain small street was ac cepted at one meeting of the Street and Sewer Department at the next meeting the directors would be asked to grade and pave the Btreet. Property owners cut up a plot of ground into building lots ana by running a small street through it secure extra frontage for building lots. The department must afterwards keep it in repair. A communication was received from tlie New York Dredging Company, in whicli they formally agree to the condi tions imposed by the Street and Sewer Department upon them under which they can occupy a portion of Christiana avenue with a dyke where tlie mud from tlie creek is placed on the property of the Lobdcll Car Wheel Company. A communication was received from the Wilmington Railway Company ask ing permission to pave their tracks with Belgian blocks on Market street from Twenty-second to the city line and agree put down other material when tlie city should improve that portion of the city. President Pratt thought tlie propo sition was not very clear and the depart ment should not lie bound by any agree ment, but that the company should put down other material when the de partment deemed it necessary. Notice had been given to the P., W. B., B. & O. and W. & N. railroads, that the culvert under the tracks at tlie mouth of Clements Run was too small to carry off the water. An answer was re ceived from but one of the companies. The companies will likely endeavor to make the department bear tlie larger part if not the entire expense of enlarg g the-.Culvert. Michael Grady was among the visitors the meeting, and came to see about a sewer connection at Third aDd King. Tlie property in question had been con nected with the old Bradford sewer, which was constructed way back in 1872. The cellar of the property had been drained into it, however, there being no cesspool connection. When the new sewer on King street was constructed, assessment was levied, and later a put on the property. Mr. Grady 1 that in order to nave full connec tion with the new Bewer he would have pay the lien and decided to do so. The weekly pay roll was $224.63; secretary's collections. $2,556.32; city treasurer's balances, $37,099.46. lien found HIS BACK BROKEN.

MIX-UP AMONG "CULLED" FOLK Warrants in Plenty Sworn Out After the House Is Raided and the Inmates Arrested by the Poll oe... Pro ba bjy Fatal Injuries Inflicted.

The affair hap pened at 3.45 o'clock yesterday after noon. Garlic visited tlie house on Monday and played poker with the inmates for some hours. When lie quit he was the loser of a considerable sum of money. He secured some more money yester day and went back to the house deter mined to win back the money he had lost and more too. Upon entering the house he at once proposed a game and for a time all went well. Garlic, after a while saw that his money was rapidly melting away and then thought he saw the others were cheating him. He flew into a rage at once and charged the other players with cheating. They denied it and he again called them cheats and more vulgar names. Tlie fight started then and there. Garlic pulled a knife as the others closed in on him. He defended himself with a knife, but was nevertheless done up. The police soon learned of the fracas and removed Garlic to the station house and from there sent him to the Delaware Hospital. Garlic swore out warrants charging Mary Jones, the proprietress of the house and her alleged husband, Alexander Jones, with assault with intent to kill, and also with keeping a disorderly house. The warrants were served by the police, who also took into custody the other inmates of the house, Annie Coates, William Thomas and Emma Watson, who will be field as witnesses, although warrants may also be put on them. Subsequently Mary Jones, Annie Coates, William Thomas and Emma Watson swore out information against Garlic charging him with assault and battery with intent to kill. Mary Jones, the proprietress, who was cut in the breast by Garlic, swore infor mation charging him with assault with intent to kill. Garlic is a badly used up man and it will require some time for him to cover. The affair caused much excite ment on Orange street and a crowd was attracted by the noise made by the party.
