Reilly, according to O'Day, took no
part in the attempts to kidnap C. A.
Clement, the jeweier. He was asked
to join the plot tjo kidnap the baby and
refused. This is borne out by a 'let
ter written by Reilly to-a confederate

Claude Piersol, convicted of the kid

blamed Reilly as the originator of all
the kidnapping schemes. He wa3

Yesterday manteor tne zoth anniver
sary of the establishment of the paid
Equfpment&Ifire department in this city:. The new
system was inaugurated under the ad
ministration ' Qf Mayor, Silas P.
Wright,; the jaejRepublican " mayor
of Wilmingtoni irhe ': old ' ' Volunteer
system was composed, of two engineJ
and hose companies, namely, the At-
jlantic and the Adrfan, and one hooki'
compaHy. mere was also
a colored hos &nd engme company,
the Cape Fearl , ' ; :
The date Mt.; -.Martin Newman-was
chief of the volunteer department fo
many years. Mr. naries Sclfhibben,
who was assistant chief at that time,
was elected t0. be chiet or -the paid
department at its beginning, and has
(-held the post ever .since, with great
credit to himself and to the city.
A score of years has passed since
the volunteer fire companies ' did ser
vice in Wilmington. Many recall the
favorite horses that responded to the
call of the alarm. The little hose reels !
and engines of those days have given
way to the modern hose wagons and
auto trucks of the nresent ntifl tho
sound pf the gong, which fprmerly
called men from every portion of .tha
city, now hardily occasions a ripple, in
the dailv routine; n the troinoH firQ
laddies are propelled to the scene
with lightning like rapidity.
The c;ld fire horse, that charged so
noblv to the battle of .fisrht
livion. Memory recalls no finer sbirif
than that exhibited by the fire horses,!
and they were the pets, of young anu j
Old alike. The gasoline engine has j
eliminated tnem rrom their former
sphere of usefulness. .
The fire losses for the last twenty
years in this city average around S60,-
000 a year. They have been as low
I as $16,000 in one year, and as high as
?180,000 in another. The latter loss
was occasioned when the Seaboard
warehouses burned some years ago.
THERE is no rest for the wicked
It's not true. A band of
some of the wickedest men that ever
drew breath rested for one week, on
full pay, while "Who Is 'Number
One'?" the new Paramount serial, was
being made. 1 '
It happened in the making of one of
the earlier episodes. You won't see
them rest in, the picture. As far as
the spectator knows, they relentlessly
