DELAWARE.

MAYOR'S OFFICE,

Wilmington, Del., May 20, 1897. SIR: In answer to your communication concerning charitable insti. tutions in this city, I will reply to your questions consecutively, as numbered:

First. No charitable institution in this city receives any part of its maintenance from the municipal or State funds.

Second. No moneys are regularly appropriated to aid charitable insti. tutions under the control of any religious denomination.

Third. No moneys are regularly appropriated to aid charitable institutions controlled by private corporations, sectarian or unsectarian.

Our city council has a “ fuel fund” under its own control through which the very poor are supplied during the winter months with small supplies of coal.

On an extraordinary occasion the council might make an appropriation to aid an institution, but at present there are none receiving aid.

Our county (Newcastle) has its hospital, or almshouse, and the State an insane asylum, and there are a number of charities, all supported by endowments and contributions from private sources. Very truly, yours,

O. R. JEFFERIS, Mayor. Hon. JAMES MCMILLAN,

United States Senate.

MAYOR'S OFFICE,

Sarannah, Yay 21, 1897. DEAR SIR: In answer to your esteemed note of 18th instaut, I beg to reply:

First. Charitable institutions in this city do receive a part of their maintenance from municipal moneys.

Second. Public moneys are appropriated to the charitable institutions under the care aud control of religious denominations.

Third. Public moneys are appropriated to aid charitable institutions controlled by private corporations.

Fourth. The amount expended by this city is $10,800 per annum.

This amount is distributed between the Savannah Hospital, a private corporation governed by a board of trustees; the St. Joseph's Infirmary, the title to which I apprehend is vested in the Roman Catholic Bishop of Savannah, and the Georgia Infirmary, an institution for negroes. I understand that the Georgia Infirmary is controlled by trustees. The amount paid by the city is $300 per inonth to each one of these three institutions. It is proper to add that while the St. Joseph's Infirmary is controlled by a religious denomination, yet so far as its treatment of patients is concerned, it is entirely nonsectarian, Yours, very truly,
