From the Salisbury Advertiser Feb 11th, 1899
The Delmar citizens on the Delaware side of town are taking steps to have the Delaware side incorporated which has never been done. We are glad of the move because it means better order, better sidewalks, and better lights on that half of town which has long been sadly in need of the same. This will also prevent horseracing through the business streets where the lives of citizens have been endangered by reckless and fast driving. You have our congratulations for any move for the improvement of Delmar.
