Delaware Street Directory.

The dividing line between streets east and west in Delaware is

Sandusky street, and between streets north and south is William

street. William street was designed as the main thoroughfare of the

city by its founders, and in the central section is sixty feet wide.

old Sandusky trail, from Columbus to the lakes, made Sandusky the

business street of the city despite the original plans. Delaware has

September 3, 1912. The adverse majorities on the forty-two amend-

ments ranged from 109 to 1,850, in some townships reaching as

high as 6 to 1. The liquor license clause lacked 124 votes of carry-

ing (1,579 to 1,455), the woman suffrage amendment lost by 191

(2,098 to 1,907), the initiative and referendum by 1,071, abolition

of capital punishment by 1,258. Home rule for cities lost heavily in

the townships and in the city by 618 to 598.


Delaware county went into the "dry" column October 1, 1908,

and thirty days later fifteen Delaware saloons were closed. The

county went "dry" by 2,147, and to this total the city contributed a

"dry" majority of 528. No precincts except those in the Fourth ward

went "wet," although Harlem township came within one vote of a

tie. Precinct A of the First ward scored the most decisive "dry"

victory, the proportion being 7 to 1. On the day of the local option

election there were two arrests on charges of keeping saloons open

and two for alleged illegal voting. The total vote cast was 6,539,

4,343 being "dry" and 2,196 "wet." Delaware county was the seven-

teenth to vote under the Rose law.

May 25, 1903, the city voted on the liquor question and went

"wet" by a majority of 574, as against the "dry" majority which the

city gave at the 1908 election. Before 1890 the city was "dry" for a

period of a year, but in August, 1899, the "wets" won again and helf

sawy until the 1908 election. At one time there were twenty-seven

saloons in the county.

By act of the Ohio Legislature, February 10, 1808, Delaware

county was created.

Through the influence of Moses Byxby, special commissioners

located the county seat here in March, 1808.

Delaware was first incorporated as a village in 1816. That year

thirty-two votes were polled, and in the winter of the first election a

wood-chopper, standing on the barren Monnett Hall hill, looked over

the surrounding valley and counted thirty-two houses. In four years

these increased to fifty, and in 1823 there were sixty houses.

At that time a Board of Trustees, elected by the people, man-

aged the affairs of the village. This form of government continued

until 1849, when the Legislature passed an act providing for a town

council of eight members. This council chose from its ranks a

Mayor, Recorder, Treasurer and Assessor. They also elected a mar-

shall and a street committee of three.

Up to 1857 the Mayor served without pay, except such legal fees

as he received as a magistrate. In that year, however, the salary

was fixed at $200. In 1863 this salary was cut in half. In 1854

councilmen were allowed $1 for each regular session and 50 cents

for each special meeting. The marshal received $200 annually. In

fact, at that time the marshal was a most important functionary.

Besides representing the majesty of municipal law, he collected the

taxes, cleaned the streets, had charge of the village market. Later

it became the duty of council to appoint the marshal, and he served

night and day for $2, exclusive of legal fees.

In the early days city officials were much troubled with stray

animals. Hogs, dogs and cows ran at large, greatly to the worry of

the citizenry. Finally a dog and hog tax was levied in 1842, but the

friends of the latter were too powerful, and the partially collected

tax was refunded. But with the growth of the village the opposition

grew stronger, and the hog, shorn of his liberty, cannot at this pro-

gressive date be nurtured within the closely guarded precincts of the


In 1821 James B. Weaver was the only school teacher in Dela-

ware. He taught in a building on the site of present city hall. In

a fit of passion he fatally injured a pupil, and although no prosecu-

tion followed, the act broke up the school and drove the teacher from

his profession and from the town.

In 1873 Delaware advanced from village rank to the dignity of

a city. The population was slightly more than 6,000. The city was

divided into three wards, and later into five. There was a re-division

in 1891, when six wards were created. There was another change in

1899, and finally the divisions were made in 1912 to include four

wards, with a total of twelve precincts. It is interesting to note the

Delaware and the Parcel Post.

The new parcel post, operated by the United States govern-

ment, went into effect January 1, 1913, the first package out of Dela-

ware being a violin sent by J. W. Bonham to Melvin, Iowa. Seven-

teen parcels were mailed from the local office the first day. Parcel

post is a new way of sending packages, and there are three distinct-

ively new features:

1. The postage you pay depends on the weight and the distance

your package goes. Exception: Packages weighing four ounces or

less are so small that they will be sent at the old flat rate of 1 cent

an ounce everywhere.

2. You can now send packages weighing up to eleven pounds,

instead of only four pounds.

3. You must use a new kind of stamp for parcels. Ordinary

letter stamps are not good on these packages, and the new parcel

post stamps are not good on other mail matter.


The "zone system" is easy to understand. Just remember that

whatever you may be, you are the center of the whole system. The

accompanying parcel post map and table contain all the necessary

references. Use them every day--they're valuable!


Don't use ordinary stamps; the distinctive parcel post stamps

must be used.

Don't seal your pacakge; wrap and tie it securely.

Don't fail to put the sender's name on the outside of package.

Don't forget to mark your package "Perishable" or "Fragile," if

the contents are of that nature.


Parcels weighing four ounces or less are mailable at the rate of

1 cent for each ounce or fraction of an ounce, regardless of distance.

Parcels weighing more than four ounces are mailable at the pound

rate, as shown by the following table, and when mailed at this rate

any fraction of a pound is considered a full pound:

*The local rate in the first zone applies to parcels sent by a city man

to someone in the same city, or on a rural route starting out of that city,

and also to parcels sent by someone on a rural route to someone on the

same rural route, or to the city from which that route starts, or to some-

one on another route starting out of the same city. The zone rate for the

first zone applies to packages sent between cities.

The amount levied in 1911 under the old law, based on a levy

of 10 mills on a duplicate of the real and personal property tax of

$4,000,000, showed in receipts $40,000. Now, the amount appor-

tioned to the municipal funds by the Budget Commission under the

Smith 1 per cent bill for 1912, with a levy of 3.35 mills on a dupli-

cate of $8,730,035, shows receipts of only $29,245.62, making a de-

crease in property tax revenues alone of $10,754.38. This, with the

amount cut off by the loss of the bridge and Dow tax of $10,000

(estimated) will show an actual shortage in city revenues each year

of $20,745.38, unless the Budget Commission increases the mill levy,

or unless the real and personal tax duplicate is made greater than

that of the year 1912. To make the same revenue as received for

property taxes in 1911, the appraised valuation of the city should be

placed at $12,000,000 (instead of $8,730,035), on which, with the

levy of 3.35 mills, the amount received would equal $40,200, or $200

in excess of the amount received in 1911.

Scioto river starts in eastern Auglaize county. For sixty miles

its course is eastward, but in Marion and Delaware counties it takes

up a permanent southern course. It drains an area of 6,430 square

miles. The Scioto travels down through Columbus, and a short dis-

tance below Chillicothe the hills close in on both sides and the re-

mainder of the river's course is through a deep valley, bordered by

hills 400 feet or more in height.

From Here to There in Rhyme.

Here's a distance table in rhyme. If you live in Delaware and

want to know how many miles you are from a neighboring village,

or if you live in the rural districts and want to know the distance to

the county seat, just take a glance:

From Hyattville to Delaware it's six good miles they say;

At least that's what a witness draws in travel fees one way.

But if you are from Ashley, you've ten and half to travel,

While an Olive Green man, on foot or horse, full thirteen must un-


It's just six miles from Bellpoint, when walking's good or ill;

Galena twelve and Powell ten, nineteen from Centerville.

With eight small miles behind him, the Lewis Center man would be


A Kilbourne man requires two less, or a half dozen in the clear.

From Leonardsburg it's six and a half, from Rome it's past half


From Radnor it's a lovely eight, and Stratford three--that's plenty.

A Cheshire man has eleven big miles of road on which to hike it;

A Harlemite but sweet sixteen, and most the way could pike it.

A long, lean man from Warrensburg could reach here in an hour,

For with just six miles to travel, he doesn't need much power.

An Ostrander man counts nine short miles before we chance to greet


A White Sulphur man goes half a dozen miles ere he gets where we

can meet him.

Rathbone's busy pilgrims live just twelve miles from the hub;

And Norton farmers, when in town, drive nine full miles for grub;

And it's not because they're stingy that they drive home for a meal;

'Most any restaurant habitue knows exactly how they feel.

Now Sunbury town and Delaware have a dozen miles between;

And a Condit man can reach this town by pacing off eighteen.

To Berkshire, too, upon my word, it's just nine miles, they say;

While "wet" Columbus, twenty-four, is down hill all the way.
