d. ml A STATL
Raelfag to the instance of South
Dakota's sut on defaulted bonds of
North Carolina, the New York World
of recent date had the following:
The succeee of South Dakota's suit
against North Caruna opens the way
to colleeton of the defaulted bonds of
other Southern States. The North Ca

road duri the remonstruetion period

The holders of the bonds could not
Me theStateof North Carolinan there
was no court which had jurisdiction in a
suit against a State without leave of the
State. The United States courts have
Jurisdiction of suits between the States.
The holders of the bonds thought of the
clever scheme of presenting a few of
them to the South Dakota State Uni-
versity, which brought suit in the name
of South Dakota. The United States
Supreme Court decided in favor of
South Dakota and ordered payment of
its bonds.
To prevent the presenting of more
bonds to other western States to have
collected, a compromise has been made
between North Carolina and the holders
of the bonds. The bondholders are bet-
ter off, as they would have received
nothing from the bonds they might
have given away, and North Carolina
saves the amount reduced by the com-
promise.
SAUCE FOR THE GANDER, TOO.
The venerable editor of the Ocala
Banner, commenting upon the proposi-
tion for the State to go into the insur-
ance business, aptly cites the example
of the Federal government in the mat-
ter of public printing. His remarks
apply not only to the insurance busi-
ness but to the proposition that the
State should own its own printing plant:
Governor Broward has recommended
that the State of Florida establish an
insurance business and keep at home
some of the ten millions that are an-
nually paid out to foreign insurance
companies. Some people claim that
fire and life insurance is strictly a pri-
vate business and should not be engag-
ed in by the State. These people say
that the State might just as well en-
gage in the grocery business, or any -
other business now conducted- by pri-
vate concerns. Why not? The Gov-
ernment is conducting a printing busi-
ness, and, besides its own records,
books, etc., prints envelopes for' ",ams
and private individuals at prices barely
covering the cost of the material, thus
depriving printers of business which
they might obtain on a fair basis of
com petition. Have any protests gone
up from the merchants or farmers of
the country against the Government
engaging in this business which is leg-
itimately the subject of private enter-
prise? If it is right for the Govern-
ment to engage in the printing busi-
ness, and come in sharp comptititon with
private trade, why is it not right for
the Government to go into the insur-
ance business the grocery business,
the dry goods business and the racket
business? Why should the poor print-
ers be fed with one spoon and the dry
Foods and grocery merchants with
mother? Let us all stand or fall to-
gether.
AS OTHERS SEE US.
The curious episode of the Wailes
claim is attracting considerable atten-
ion in other States. Among others, we
ind the following editorial expression

said that his coafesmlon as published

when Jailer Patton, who accompanied

told an entirely different story.
"Those other two boys." he said,

and Larkin In the latter's store. That
Caldwell had had a quarrel with Mr.
Cpps, and had not been paid for some
work performed; that the three went
down the road together and were to-
gether when Mr. Eppe was shot. He
confesses that It was he who did the
shooting, but claims that the $2.20
taken from Mr. Epps' pockets was 01i-
v!ded between the three and that they
afterwards played craps together.
Edwards alleges that before he was
taken to Tallahassee for trial he wan

DEATH CLAIMS

FITZHUGH LEE


Gallant Warrior, Peerless States-
man Suddenly Taken Hence.


WAS VICTIM OF APOPLEXY

Stroke Received While General Was on
Train Enroute From Buston to
Washington.

General Fitzhugh Lee, United States
army, retired, and one of Virginia's
foremost sons, died at the Providenc,'
hospital in Washington Friday nigut
from an attack of apoplexy, which
he suffered early in the morning on
a train while en route from Boston
to Washington.
The end was peaceful and without
P pain, the general remaining conscious
until five minutes before he died. None
of the immediate family had time to
reach his bedside before the end came.
The general was 68 years old. A wid-
ow .and five children survive him. Two
of the bcys are army officers, and
two of the girls are wives of army
officers, while the remaining child is
a young woman still in her teens. The
children are Mrs. J. C. Rhea, wife of
Lleut. Rhea, now at FPort Oglethorpe,
Ga.; Lieut Fitzhugh Lee of the cav-
al branch, now in Manila; Lieut.
Crge Mason Lee of the seventh cav-
alry, now in San Francisco; Mrs. Anne
Brown, wife of Lieut. Brown of the
seventh cavalry, now at San Fran-
cisco, and Miss Virginia Lee.
General Lee was stricken with apo-
plexy, the entire left side being at-
fected, at 3 o'clock Friday morning.
The train had just left the Harlem
river when the stroke came. The
train bearing the general arrived in
Washington directly after 10 o'clock.
Under the direction of Major Keen,
U. S. A., of the surgeon general's
office, the patient was removed to
Providence hospital. The news of the
general's condition had preceded him
to Washington, and many of his army
and personal friends were at the
Pennsylvania station to meet him.
General Lee had been spending a
few days in the city of Boston, in the
interest of the Jamestown exposition,
and was returning to Washington, on
his way to join Mrs. Lee. His heart
rnd soul was In the exposition work,
and he labored zealously to make it
a success. His visit to Boston was in
this connection, and he had appeared
before the legislatures of New York,
Pennsylvania. Illinois and other places
!n behalf of the project. Since he
took up the work of the Jamestown
exposition. he has mr.de his official
residence at Norfolk, Va. However.
his activities in connection with this
work have given him very little time
1 there. During the session of con-
.r(ss just closed, the general spent a
largee part of his time In Washington
in the interest of the necessary leg.-
islation authorizing the exposition,
General Lee long has been a proml.-
nent figure In Washington, and he al-
ways was given a hearty reception
wherever !he went. General Lee was a
nephew of the famous confederate
general, Robert E. Lee. and, like him,
saw active service in the confeder-
acy.


Prior to the civil war. at the begin-
ning of which he resigned his com-
mission in the United States army.
General Lee saw considerabfT fron-
tier duty against the Indians. He was
an expert cavalry officer. His
services in the confederate army as
a major generWl are weal known, and
l! :rng his actihe work in the Spanish.
American war. C(oeral Lee fl;led a
number of Important positions, lb.
:uding the governorship of Virginia,
J e presidency of the Pittsburg and
4 'virginia railroad, the collectorship of
nternsl revenue for the Lysebburg
d:s'rict and the consul -generalship "at
Havana.
Followti, his honorable discharge
from the volunteer army on March 2,
191, General Lee was appointed to
th" regul" army February 11. 191.
with rand\.of brigadier general, ad
with this rbk he was retired in the
month of 4rclh ollowlag.

A Milwaukee dispatch says: That
William Bigelow, vice president of
the First National Bank and brother
of Frank C. Bigelow, defaulter, ac-
cidentally exposed his brother to the
directors, is the story that is accept-
ed in banking circles as the true ver-
sion as to how the crime was brought
out Saturday night. It seems that
Frank Bigelow was called out of town
Saturday and that the affairs of the
bank were left in the hands of h:s
brother.
Saturday morning a telegram came
addressed to Bigelow from a New
York bank, stating that it was will-
ing to take care of a draft for $6u,-
000, even though the bank was already
Indebted to the New lork house for
$200,000. William Bigelow could not
understand the matter and was morw
puzzled when he discovered that th%
New York bank was charged in the
Looks with being indebted to the
First Natior/1 for $200,000. He asked
the bank to explain and found that
the telegraph was correct. An exam-
ination of the books followed and he
found so many queer things that he
decided not to wait for his brother
to return, but to consult with Mr.
Pfister. They immediately suspected
one of the cashiers of defaultng, sand
called a special meeting of the di-
rectors.
Frank C. Bigelow returned, but did
not see his brother until he reached
the bank In the evening to attend
the meeting. When the directors bha
assembled William Bigelow, the broth-
er, told what he bad discovered, and
stated that he had no idea of the
amount taken or who the criminal
was. Thereupon his brother aroae,
and made the startling disclosure that
he was a defaulter for over $1,000,-
000.
The latest step In the case Is the

schedules rhow a total liability on his
part of $3,277.000, of which $1.735,-

a teachers' college on condition that
the trustees of that institution raise
an additional $800.000. and that this
$100,000 had been raised. all In the
state of Tennessee. This will Insure
the establishment of the teachers' col-
lege at Nashville for southern teach-
ers, with an endowment of $1,800,000
to begin with. Of this $800,000 the
state legislature of Tennessee voted
$200.000, Issuing bonds to be paid off
so much every year for ten years. It
Is also expected that the county of
Dsvidson, in which the city of Nash-
ville Is located, will give $50,000.
Dr. Rose also said that a member
of the board'hsd made an offer to

BLOOD FLOWS

IN WARSAW


Cossacks Fire ercilessly Upon
Unoffending Easter Crowds.


BUTCHERY MOST HORRIBLE

lasy Vclmsof Deadiy B dikts Were
Women and 0Cldren-- #orkm:
Retaliate by Using Bombs.
_~ ^
Nearly one hundred persons were
killed or wounded in disturbances In
various quarters of Warsaw, Russian
Poland, Monday. The troops appar-
ently were uncontrollable and violat-
ed all orders to act with moderation.
They ftred into crowds of demonstra-
tore, and workmen, in retaliation, re.
sorte,l to the use of firearms and
bomb Many women and children
are among the dead and dyingl. What
approached a reign of terror existed
Monday itlght; the city presented a
most gloomy aspect and the temper
of the entire community augurs ill.
May day opened with every pros-i
pect that the recent gloomy forbod-.
ings would find contradiction in a
peaceful ending. Glorious weather
ushered in the beginning of the cele-'
brations and all factories, shops and
offices of every description were clos-
ed. The streets were crowded from
early in th'o morning with gaily dress-
ej people and troops. Children enjoy-
ed themselves in the warm sunshine. I
The presence of numerous patrols of I
Cossack cavalry and infantry were
the only reminder of lurking danger.
No ontoward Incident was reported
until afternoon. The first disturb-
ances occurred between 12 and 1
o'clock p. m., when several workmen
carrying ted flags marched along Ze-
lasna street. The demonstration was
quite ord'irly and proceeded without
molestation for some distance. Sud-
denly several squadrons of Uhlans ap-
peared, Lut without interfering with
the procession, and took up a posi-
tion along the sidewalks while the
workmen passed through the lines.
Then a company of infantry ap-
proached from the front and imme-
diately the cavalry charged into the
procession, driving it with the fat of
their swords into a disorganized mass. i
When the cavalry withdrew, the in. I
faItry fired a volley, whereupon the
demonstrators turned and fled. The
Infantry continued to discharge vol-
leys into the retreating, shrieking
multitude. Thirty-one persons were'
killed and many wounded and of the'
latter it is believed that fifteen will
die.


The shooting Is described as hav-*
ing been quit,' unprovoked. It hhs
aroused the most intense Indignation

A FEDERAL nJNCION

Issued Against Stikcrs at Chicago by
Jc hsbasut and Unck Sam
Enters the Game.
For the firot time since the strike
of the American Railway Union in
1694, thg ove-nment of the United
States aas been made a party to the
labor troubles In Chilcao. The oVv-
ernmeat wa brought to the tenmte*
strike Friday by the issuance of an
injunction by Jidge C. C. Kohlaat
of the United States circuit eourt
The writ was asked in behalf of
the Imployera' Trading Assoclatien
on the grounds that the organisatlon
's Incorporated under the laws of
A\zst Virginia, and therefore ls un-
der the protection of (he federal
court. The order commands that all
defendants refrain from any Interfer-
ence with the business of the Bmploy-
ers' Teaming company, and commands
the strikers from picketing, massing
on the streets with intent to inter-
fero with the wagons of the complain.
ant and from interfering In any man-
ner with men in Its employ.
As soon as issued, copies of the In-
junction were printed on large cards
and two of these were attached to
every wagon of the Employers' Team-
ing company, which went upon the
street. The Injunction exerted a pac-
ifying influence, and there was less
rioting in the streets than on Thurs-
day. A heavy thunder storm which
continued during the latter part of
the afternoon and through the even-
ing ploo lent material assistance in
keeping the streets clear.
Twelve arrests were made for In-
terference with the Injunction, all of
them being at one time and place.
At 1:30 o'clock Friday afternoon two
wagons loaded wtth coal approached
the Union League Club on Jackson
Boulevard, and when they attempted
to drive into the narrow alley east
of the club house to unload, the non-
union teamsters were attacked by a
crowd of strike sympathizers and a
lively fight resulted. The police in
charging the mob arrested twelve
strikers.
One hundred and five copies of the
Injunction were given to United States
Marshal Ames for service upon labor
leaders and five of his assistants were
sent out immediately to serve them.
When news of the Injunction reach-
ed President Seea of the teamsters'
union, he Issued the following order
signed by the committee of teamster
business ngents:
"To All Union Teamsters: Permit
no violation of the peace under any
circumstances. Competent drivers
cannot be procured to handle the
teams In Chicago, and violence will
not help its in this strike. Be loyal
to your union and obey Its instruc-
tions."
In the afternoon. a new situation in
the strike Injinction question was
placed before Judge Kohisaat, when
attorneys for the Scott Transfer com-
pany asked for an order to restrain
theo.heads of the various unions from
callfTig out the men who are working
for the transfer company, which Is
also incorporated under West Virginia
laws, and that, therefore, the protec-
tion of the United States should he
given. Judge Kohlsaat declared that
the Injunction prayed for was too
sweeping in its scope, and directed
that It be presented to him in a mod-
Iflied form.

Latest detaJls of a tornado which
struck Laredo. Texas, Saturday even-
ing Indicate that first reports were by
no means exaggerated either as to the
number of lives sacrificed or the Snan-
olal damage resulting. Scores of
people were Injured and are being
attended by the various physicians.
It will be impossible to state the
number of the Injured, but it is not
believed that many deaths will result
from injuries.
The number killed Is sixteen In La
redo. The victims, a majority of
whom were Mexicans, were all crush-
ed to death by the falling In of the
heavy walls of Adobe buildings, which
they occupied.
A trip through the town falls to
show a locality that has not suffered
more or less from the storm. Trees,
fences, telegraph and telephone poles,
corrugated roofs, chimneys and walls
and debris of all Imaginable kinds
strew the streets.
The city authorities set diligently
at work cleaning away the wreckage
of th& storm.
Conditions In New Laredo, across
the Rio Orande river, are similar to
those existing on this side. It to
not officially known how many dead
or injured there are, but in a Inter-
view a city official of that place
stated there were five dead that he
knew of. although rumor has it that
ten .lives were lost. The live known
dead added to the list of dead on this
side of the river would bring the
number of deaths In both cities up to
twen W-one persons.
Dr. H. J. Hamilton of the United
States hospital service has placed 350

Whes you think of America, our glo'

Our output of coal In 1903 was 819,000.
00 tons, or 638,000,000,000 pounds. The
SWhole world's coal production in the
same year was 864,000,000 tons. Practi-
eally the entire amount of our product
Is cosmmmed In the domestic market,
sportss being only about 6,000,000 tons.


There was a small riot the other day
In New York City when over 300 men

this state are trying to find men to
work for them, offering them from $3"
to $40 a month and comfortable homca,
and many are trying In vain, com.

For many years the vice-presidency
has not been'held in as high esteem as
the fathers held It, says the Washing-

Rose culture may be said to be lo.

horticulture because of the refinement
of the product, the high prices which

The new Commissioner of pensions

month a year allotted to them, his ar-

she ought to have been past her prime

New Paftrnd Deopt.
The drawing and Aral plans for the
new piamenger staton which the Sea-
board intends to build here were on ex-
hibition at Wight & Burns' store last
Saturday. The new building will be
100 by 0 feet, and be erected east of
the present station.
The plans show a very handsome
structure, with separate accommoda-
tions for white and. colored, and will be
a vast improvement on the present ren-
ovated shack that has taken the place
of a station for the past fifty years.
Before this new station is built,
would it not be well for our Board of
Trade or, If that be defunct, for the
City Council, to see if a more eligible
site could not be found for the station?
one nearer the business center of town.
The present depot is entirely too far
away from our main streets, and one
nearer could be easily found. If the
station be put below the jail or near the
waterworks pumping station, it would
be a great deal more convenient to the
traveling public. And if at the same
time a union depot be built to accom-
mcdate all our railroads, the convenience
would be Inestimable to all. Now is the
time, before this new building is built,
to make the move for the union depot.
We trust that our City Fathers, Board
of Trade, and our business men g(ner-
ally will get together and stay together


until a union passenger station, on a
convenient site, be an accomplished
fact.

"Consumption runs in our family.

writes E. B. Reid, of Harmony, Me.
"For the past five years, however on
the slightest sign of Cough or Cold, I
have taken Dr. King's New Discovery
