Beneath a slate sky, the last of the season's golden leaves drifted down like confetti upon the thousands gathered yesterday to watch state and local politicians literally bury the hatchet in a Delaware tradition known as Return Day. About 15,000 people lined the streets in this town of 1,800 to watch party leaders bury a hatchet in a clear plastic box full of sand. "Let us split no more hairs," intoned town crier Ronald Dodd as state Republican Chairman Francis A. DiMondi, state Democratic Chairman Samuel L. Shipley and Sussex County American Party Chairman David S. DeRiemer jointly poured a bucket of sand over the hatchet.

MAYBE "Kai the hatchet-wielding hitchhiker" likes his caramel lattes with an extra shot. The homeless 24-year-old - who was launched to YouTube fame in February after a bizarre television interview he gave about using a hatchet to stop a madman from attacking a woman - was arrested on a murder charge in Philadelphia about 6 p.m. last night after being spotted at a Center City Starbucks. Officials in Union County, N.J., announced earlier yesterday that the hitchhiker was wanted in the bludgeoning death of New Jersey attorney Joseph Galfy Jr., who was found beaten to death Monday morning inside his Clark home.

In the statement, Conley said, Reddish said he had lowered himself from a roof to the seventh-floor balcony and entered Rosenthal's apartment in the Somerset complex through an unlocked sliding-glass door.

In one short year, thousands of rowing crews - high school crews, college crews, Olympic crews, international crews - have phoned, faxed and even driven to Morrisville, Vt., up Route 100 about 10 miles north of Stowe, to buy a $250 oar. The oar has a blade shaped like a meat cleaver and nicknamed the "hatchet. " It's an ugly, squat-looking thing, but it goes through the water like a power motor. And it makes boats go faster. It's become like an "Air Jordan" sneaker. Get it now because, in rowing, "it's the blade.

Delaware's Republicans and Democrats buried the hatchet yesterday - literally - in honor of Return Day, the traditional ceremony marking the end of months of speechmaking, mudslinging, and pontificating. Political speeches are forbidden during this statewide post-election party, which clogged Georgetown's streets with a parade of antique carriages and filled the air with marching music. And it is considered bad form for politicians to miss the fun. The gatherings have been held at the Sussex County seat since 1792, when the town crier first announced the official election results and politicians and their supporters tried to make peace among themselves.

Mayor John Street buried the hatchet yesterday with the local leader of the NAACP. J. Whyatt Mondesire, the group's president, then dug up that hatchet and shook it in the air with a fair share of menace but did not fling it Street's way. Not that Street would have been there to take the hit. The mayor slipped out of the NAACP inauguration yesterday after his speech, leaving behind Mondesire to rail against outside political forces trying...

THE ATMOSPHERE at Jazzy Shears Hair Studio in North Philly was abuzz about what happened nearly 2 decades ago. Inside the barbershop, amid barber chairs positioned beneath cherry-leather boxing gloves, fighters of yesterday talked about the past. On one side was Bobby "Boogaloo" Watts, with his signature cowboy-esque capper. Buster "Demon" Drayton let out a wild laugh next to Kevin "The Spoiler" Howard and Wayne Samuels. Ivan Robinson and William "The Hammer" Jones filled the room, along with trainer Augie Scimeca.

THE TITLE vehicle in "Snowpiercer" is a nuclear-powered train that chugs around the major continents of the world in a giant loop. So, to say that the folks aboard are going in circles is accurate. Doubly so: The rich folks are packed into the front, the poor are stuck back in steerage, where they eat soylent greenish protein bars and plot revolution. They want to push aside the elites, take control of the engine that makes everything run. Director Bong Joon-ho ("The Host") isn't showing a revolution, he's showing us every revolution.

On Jan. 2, when Mayor Nutter begins his second term with Darrell L. Clarke likely presiding over Council, the entire city will have a stake in whether the two can build a relationship - or at least work together without antagonizing each other. If the past is any indication, they have a long road to transform their arranged marriage into a happy union. This spring, when Nutter and Clarke were backing competing ideas to fill a huge shortfall in the school district's budget, their interactions were "at best, awkward," said Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown.

Dozens of neighborhood children were dancing in the narrow North Philadelphia street at his 7-year-old daughter Jahimya's birthday block party on Saturday afternoon when a black Volvo suddenly came speeding toward them, Jerome Conquest told the Daily News yesterday. The car took the front end off a parked car being used to block off North Myrtlewood Street near Huntingdon, crashed through food tables and a moon bounce, then plowed into the dancers, running over Conquest's 8-year-old nephew, Andre Clark.
