The buildings were insured, but the personal property is a total loss. Inquiries for a John TUawlcy. A dispatch from Centreville last Sunday says: Clerk Cecil, of the Circuit Court, today received a letter from N. W. Warner, of Sulphur Springs, Henry count}', Ind., inquiring about the reputation of John JThawley, who, the letter stated, was in prison, charged with murder. N. W. Warner, the writer of the letter, said that Thawley claimed to have been raised in Queen Anne's county. There was a young man of that name who left here for the West several years ago, but while living in this vieoity he bore an excellent reputation. He has a sister, the wife of Capt. William Pratt, who resides iu Centreville. His father lived in this county many years, going from here to Caroline and then to Virginia. Shortly after the war he was clerk of the Circuit Court of Gloucester County, Va. No particulars of the alleged crime are given in the letter. Trains Meet at Queeu Anue. The Pennsylvania Railroad and the Queen Anne's Railroad Companies have established an important connection at Queen Anne's Station, and now passengers are enabled to change from one road to tbe other on the morning and evening trips. This is a great convenience to the public. The west-bound early train on the Queen Aune's road and the north-bound early train on the Delaware and Chesapeake road wait at the Queen Anne's crossing, where a waiting room for each line, and a stairway with rail, ascending from the new line to the other have been recently built.

Tho oyster supper here last Friday and Saturday evenings was quite a success, over twenty-three dollars being cleared. The proceeds ate for the benefit of the church. Elaborate preparations are being made for Easter at Ames. Mr. an-1 Mrs. Edward M. Willey visited Seaford and Reliance frieuds last week. equal ministerial and lay representation iu the General Conference aud the ratio of representation. The first question w i l l come up as a piopo.sition from the Rock River Conference of Illinois, which u n a n i - mously voted to submit the proposition to the auuual conferences, but will not formally vote on t h e question until its a n n u a l sessiou, next fall. If three-fourths of the m e m - bers of the annual coufcieuces vote in its favor, the constitutional change may be ratified at the session of the General Conference, iu 1900, by a two-thirds vote. Tho proposition is to change the constitution so t h a t one laymau shall be elected f i o m each a n n u a l conference except w h o r e there is more tliau one ministerial delegate, and t n e u the lay delegates shall equal the ministerial delegates. The socoud question will come up as a proposition from the East Maine Confetenco. It proposes that the representation in the General Conference shall cousist of oue ministerial delegate for not less t h a n 14 nor more than 60 members of an a n n u a l conference and not more than two lay delegates. At present (he m a x i m u m n u m b e r is oue delegate for 45 members. The appointment of presiding eld- eis for the Wilmington and Dover districts, to succeed L. E. Barrett and R. H. Adams, tespectively, will be a most interesting feature of the conference session. For the presiding eldership of the W i l m i n g ton district, J. D. C. Hanna, Ezra Tinker, and W. L. S. Murray are considered thostrongest possibilities. It has also been suggested, and in a few days the suggestion may bo given a stronger impetus, to effect a transfer of presiding elders, by which it is proposed that Dr. Martindale shall come to Wilmington district and Dr. Barrett shall go to the Salisbury district. It is believed that the change would give general satisfaction. Tho proposed transfer is not without precedent, W i l b u r F. Corkrivu and J. A.B. Wilson h a v i n g , within the last 10 years, been transferred from oue presiding eldership to another. For the presiding eldership of the Dover district, V. S. Collins and S. M. Morgan are most prominently mentioned. Besides his fitness for the position, it is urged in behalf of Mr. Collins that his appointment would create at Georgetown, now a desirable pastorate, a vacancy which Adam Stengle might be asked to fill. The pastorates of three ministeis, E. C. Macnichol, of Pocomoke City, Adam Stengle, of Smyrna, and W. S. H. Williams, of Mt. Pleasant, (Laurel), will expire by limitation. F. M. Dougherty, of Clayniont, whose transfer to the Wilmington Conference was announced a year ago, will return to the Minnesota Conference, and accept a pastorate at Sank Rapids. He will go West immediately after his marriage to Miss Clara Lauer, which will tako plaoe iu Philadelphia next week. Braudy- wine Church, Wilmington, and the Pocomoko City Church will send committees to Lewes, to negotiate for pastors. Few churches have asked for new pastors. These include New Castle, which has asked for R. Irving Watkins; Ziou, which has asked for W. R. Mowbray; Berlin, which has asked for H. G. Budd; Ceutreville, which has asked for E. C. Atkins; Eastou, which has asked for R. H. Adams; Smyrna, which has nskcd for C. A. Hill; Federalsburg which has asked for S. P. Shipmaa, and Milton, which has asked for W. L. White. In many instances where a pastor has not been i n v i t e d to return the minister has announced that he desires a change of pastorate.

W. E. West of Preston and E. H. Hynson, of Kent Island, will retire from the active ministry. Warning to Voter D.ile. We appreciate your motives and accept your most excellent senti- m e n t of w o m a n h o o d . Wo do not misundei stand you, however, when you say you are not "a-goin' to allow us to vote.' 1 That certainly is plain enough for us. if we are two or thrco degrees lower thau the men in ouler of creation, and if our cranium docs contain 13 ounces less in- t e l l e c t u a l substance, as a gentleman of renown remarked. Don't become alaimcd cind t h i n k we w a n t you to assume p.\rt of our burdens. It certainly is a grave mistake.

We w i l l pic-i on toward t h e goal, k n o w i n g no endeavor is in v a i n . K n o u lodge comes to those w h o see the f o r t i t u d e w i t h which we persevere; t h e n wisdom lingers. We agree that (his is a new work for us, but there are many other things not in oiu- l i n e of work t h a t we are compelled to enter. Why not this? Yon a d m i t theie are exceptional women; then exceptional rights. If the polls are so corrupt, it is t i m e some .uigel deliver you f i o m these evils. Why can't woman be t h i s angel of merej?

Linen crash is also used for this kind ot hat. The most striking o f a u are those of white 01- gray felt, intended tor summer wear. Rich ribbons of velvet, silk satin and moire are all used, being plaited and shirred, while piece fabrics, heavily embroidered n i t h beads and spangles, also obtain. The fashionable colors are periwinkle blue, anemone blue, heliotrope, champagne, the light shades of ruby, brown, pearl gray, p t n k and pale green. Fanciful combinations are noted in the flowers.

MILWAUKEE HARVESTER Co. Hood Komls for Wlcomico. The people of Wicomico c o u n t y , where there is a good deal of sand, propose to have good roads. Their idea is this: The legislature will be asked to impower the county commissioners to levy a special road tax not exceeding twenty ""cents on the b u n d l e d dollars in any election district, upon petition from said district, the county to appropriate a like sum. This money is to bo expended by a board of local road ctJinmissionors, u n d e r the supervi- .sion of the c o u n t y commissioneis. To illustrate, the assessable basis of Salisbury district is six h u n d r e d thousand dollars. Should the tax pay- ors decide to expbud on shell roads, or in any other way to poimanently improve roads, tuey will petition tho the commissioners to levy a. tax of twenty cents; this will give them $1200. This will be supplemented by au a p p r o p r i a t i o n from the county of $1200 m a k i n g a f u n d of $2400. The expenditure of this money will be u n d e r the direction of a local board of road commissioners. Dnngliterg or America.
