afternoon that it is more than probable of
that the next General Assembly will
elect a dark horse to represent the
party in the United States Senate.
In speaking of the situation he said
that he was fully aware that J. Edward

Republican votes in that body.
e further stated that the question

was whether or no Mr. Addicks could
retain this following when the General
Assembly met, and secure the other nine
votes required to elect him.
He said that the indications were that

with the Union Republicans, but that
they would agree to hold

He also stated that it was highly
probable that either of these would se
cure the election and the mantle woulfl
then fall on a dark horse.
He scouted the idea that either of the
other candidates named—Rev. Jonathan

William S. Hilles, Benjamin NieTds—
had a chance of becoming United States
Senator and reiterated bis previous state
situation in all its de

Who this would be he refused to di

given to the public when the proper
time arrived.
HeJurther designated Anthony Hig

mated that neither of the candidates
could afford to deal with him, as by so
doing they would not only wreck their
but defeat tbe Republican
party of the State.
He paid a similar "compliment" to
Rev. Jonathan S. Willis, Fred Eden
Bach and Henry C. McLear, he claiming
that they had been instrumental in al
most wrecking tiie party during the re

He intimated that these men were
only awaiting a chance to gain revenge
for the failure of their many schemes,
and anyone who depended on the sup
port of this quartette were taking a snake
to their breasts. that would eventually
ruin them.
In conclusion he stated that a Repub

elected, but who he was not at liberty
to state.

thrown in the Regular Republican and

Action Taken by Encampment No. 34,
Union Veteran Legion, on the
Death of .General Garcia.
At a recent meeting of Encampment
No. 34, Union Veteran Legion, tbe fol
lowing resolutions were passed:
■ Whereas, It lias pleased the Al
mighty Supreme Ruler of the universe,
to remove from the midst of his people
one of our beloved heroes of liberty and
patriotism, General Calixto Garcia,
thereby demonstrating that his will be
done without respect to person; and
Whereas, This grand and noble man,
like Washington and the immortal Lin
coln, has been called from among his
people at a time when he had attained
tiie very zenitli of his earthly glory to a
higher and better home in heaven, where
endeth all strife, to receive his reward;
Whereas, His long and eventful life
was devoted to the caus3 of humanity,
liberty and freedom, for his oppressed
race, his name and good deeds will live
after him and be pointed to as a fitting
example for futnre generations.
Therefore, We, members of Encamp

gion, of Wilmington, Delaware, being an
organization composed of old veteran
soldiers, who, like our departed hero,
have seen long service, sharing a com
mon feeling as such, who deeply sympa

which recent circumstances in our na

people of his Country and those of the
United States, that we feel the loss of one

organization can more readily under

people of Cuba will suffer by the death
of so faithful and zealous a friend as
General Gircia, as we have all shared

be difficult, indeed, to find a successor so
well suited for his position in life at this
time, yet this encampment, in their sym

one who will at leaeVbe acceptable to his

Georgetown, Del., Dec. 18.—The con
dition of Representative-elect James C.
Conawey, of Broad Creek hundred at an
early hour this evening was most critical
and his death is now expected at almost
anv minute.
ver since Friday evening when Mr.
Conawav was attacked with hiccoughs
he lias been growing gradually weaker
and althongb the physicians in attend-1
ance have been doing ail that medical
science could suggest for his relief their
efforts thus far have proved unvailing
and they state that his case is hopeless.
The hiccough were superinduced by
dropsy of tne heart which compelled
him to take to bis bed a week ago and
his weakened condition together with
his ceaseless hiccoughing is more than
any human being can stand.
A singular misfortune appears to fol
low the Conaway family. During the
eession of the Legislature Representative
Minos Conaway was taken ill with
heart and died, and his
sonj Dr. W. S. Conaway, who waB elected
to succeed him has since died.
Mr. Conaway, who was elected on the
Union-Regular Republican ticket from
the Fourth Representative district, Sus

The Third Battalion, First Delaware

While many of the men are overjoyed
at being discharged, they are disap

one of them will receive over $40. This
amount is about one half that received
by some members of the first and second

which accounts for the Bmall pay which
