The Daily Press is able this
morning to lay before its read?
ers Mr. Joseph Cunningham's story
of the tragic scene enacted at the
Chesapeake and Ohio depot last Mon?
day at a quarter past 10 o'clock and in
which he received wounds from which',
it is said, he can not recover. An
stated In yesterday's report of the sad
event, the wounded man was taken im?
mediately to Dixie Hospital In order to
alTord him the best treatment possible
and at the same time spare his aged
mother the awful agony of lookin?
upon the bloodstained tace of her dy?
ing boy. He might get well, tliey
thought, but if he should die It would
be kinder to tell her that he had gorix
than to carry him back to the hom?
he had left a few hours before and iaj
him there and may be kill her too. But
she knows the story today, and knows
j moreover that there is hardly a chunc*
that she will ever again hear her son'?
welcome footfalls at her door.
An hour or so after Mr. Cunning?
ham's arrival at the hospital Common?
wealth's Attorney Collier called and
was granted permission to see him. a
sleeping potion had been administered
and lie had just recovered from its ef?
fects. He was bright and cheerful ana.
despite the horrible fact that a. portion
of his brain had been shot away, con?
versed intelligently. He told his story,
but It was not related as an ante mor?
tem statement, for his condition hao
not been made known to him. Cun?
ningham is a man of most remarkable
vitality, as is shown by his rising ana
walking into the freight house after ro
ceivlng the charge of shot that tore 11?
way through his skull and brain. Mr.
Collier hastened to see him in time to
hear his account of the tragedy, and
this is substantially what he learned;
At 10 o'clock on Monday morning Mr.
Cunningham left the courthouse for tne
purpose of going to the Chesapeake and
Ohio depot to make some inquiries ol
Mr. Walling, the agent, concerning the
accident by which Daniel Washington,
a negro, lost his life on Sunday. After
a brief conversation he mounted his
wheel, crossed the railway track, turn?
ed to the right and rode down an un?
improved street the length of the block,
when he again struck off to the right
and wheeled down Marshall street
which, had he kept straight on, would
have taken him past Mr. Richardson's
house. Half wav down the block od
which he was riding the railway
crosses Marshall street, and on Monday
a long train of freight cars occupied
the side track from the crossing to the
depot, 120 yards away. A moment after
passing over the track Mr. Cunning?
ham says he saw Mr. Richardson
standing near a small house, on tht
open lot at his right, with a gun in his
hand. Instantly the thought flashed
through his mind that there was trou?
ble ahead. Then he heard Mr. Rich?
ardson call to him. reminding him of a
previous warning to keep away from
his (Mr. Richardson's) house. At the
same time, he says, the latter
raised his shot gun and fired, but with-,
out effect, and Cunningham fell from
hia wheel and took refuge behind a pile
of railroad ties about 15 feet from the
tracks. As Cunningham did this Mr.
Richardson dodged behind the little
house near which he had been standing
in order to place himself out of danger
from a shot from the former's pistol.
They had been In this position but a
short time, when Mr. Cunningham saw
an opportunity of escaping to the
freight train. He went quickly and
was soon behind the cars. Then, in?
stead of walking, as the witnesses who
testified before Judge Lee said, he ran
toward the depot and passed through
the opening between the cars left for
wagons going in and out. But just as
he did so he saw Mr. Richardson ap?
proaching with his gun and believing
that his life was in danger leveled his
pistol and fired. He then backed to?
ward the entrance to the depot anil
when about 12 feet away, Mr. Richard?
son, who had come up on the outsid"
of the train, fired the shot that wound?
ed him. Such is Mr. Cunningham'?
Mr. Richardson was seen yesterday
afternoon. He was not asked to talk
for publication, because the tragedy in
which he played so conspicuous a part
has cost him pangs as bitter and deer
and terrible as any that his victim ha*
suffered since it occurred. Weeks
months ago the cruel chain of circmr.
stances which led to it left its cursr
upon him, disturbed the peace of th* ]
home he loved and which by patient
toll he had built for the wife and ehi!
dren beneath its roof. He is sorry. But
he felt that his manhood was at stak'
?more, infinitely more, his honor, anr.
not his alone, but hers, was belnf;
weighed tn the roguish scales of scan
dal mongers, and the day came whei
he could no longer resist the unseer
power that forced him on to right tin
wrong and pluck ont the tongue of foul
and venomous slander. No one ac?
cuses his wife of wrong doing. That ic
not iL But there was the sting o.
death in the whispered insinuation, the
deadly gossip that went from ear to
ear and upon which those who find de
light in soiling a woman's name and
robbing a home of its dearest jewel fat?
ten and flourish like well fed swine
The cloud that broke his peace and
darkened his life was due, he says, tn
Mr. Cunningham's visits and time and
again he warned him to keep away. H.>
had been Joe's friend, had aided him
when there was none other to whom
he could go and he prayed that ther^
might be some way by which the light
that had been withdrawn could ~e
brought back, but none could be found.
And so he did no more than any other
man with a spark of honor within his
breast would have done.

Sad Scenes at Old Point Yesterday
At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon Bat
tery G, of the Fifth Artillery, In com
tnuud of Captain Reed, and Battery K.
of the Sixth. Captain Sage, left Fori
Monroe for Tampa, Fla. Early in thn
day a large barge on which were sU
Seaboard Air Line coaches swum;
alongside the dock and very soon there?
after the work of loading war purs
phernalia was commenced. It was kept
up until 3 o'clock, when the last tent
pole was snugly packed away and ev?
erything was in readiness for the men
to march aboard, in the meantime
several hundred people, many of whom
were women and children attired as if
they were about to set out upon a holi?
day excursion, assembled on the dock
and restlessly awaited the coming or
At twenty minutes to I o'clock thr
Artillery School band, in white pant*
blue blouses and white caps, appeared
upon the brick-paved roadway oppo
site the postottice. Immediately in th?
rear of the musicians came Batterie?
B of the Third, 10 of the Fourth, and F.
H, 1 and K of the Sixth Artillery, act?
ing as an escort to their departluu
comrades. Behind these were Batterie?
G and E. After passing the hotels ih?
band turned toward the curb on thr
Chamberlln side of the street and th?
batteries composing the escort wer?
halted and stood with arms presented
Thus they expressed their good wishes
and their final farewell to those win
were going away. It was a prett?
sight, and yet one that brought tears
to the eyes of scores of people who hart
no friends in the ranks, to see thus*
artillerymen, equipped as if for a lorn;
and weary march, pass on toward the
dock to the inspiring strains of Hail
Columbia. It caused men who witness?
ed it to feel that mysterious sensation
frequently and not inappropriately
likened to cold chills running up one'*
back, and which, on almost every oc?
casion of the kind, is accompanied b>
the apparent appearance of large
lumps in their throat and the invisible
appearance of moisture in their eyes
all of which unite in warning the indi?
vidual that silence is golden.
There were many touching scenes on
the dock. When the soldiers dropped
their guns, on the ends of nearly t
hundred of which little (lags waved In
the light breeze borne in from the ses>.
the crowd made a rush for the rank*
Women holding with a firm grip to
the hands of little children pushed
their way toward Battery G to be
caught in the arms of husbands and
fathers who were going away to re
turn God only knows when, if ever. No
wonder those strong men wept as the>
clasped the hands and pressed theh
lips to those of wife and children. It
was not the hardship and suffering
which they felt are in store for them,
nor the dread of disease and death In
a distant land, but the love in theit
hearts for their homes and those fot
whom they had worked and planned
for years, that made them quail when
the hour of their .final parting came.
In groups gathered here,_an_d. there wo?
men wept aloud while the warrior hus?
band stood by bound by that terrible
silent sorrow which "whispers the o'er
fraught heart and bids it break." Th*
babies?God bless them?the little boys
and the neatly dressed little girls in
their spotless frocks, who clung to theit
mothers' skirts in that first bitter les?
son of war?they too wept.
But at other points along the line
there were other scenes?scenes in
which attractive misses in becoming
summer attire, took part. They chat?
ted and laughed with the men, told
them to be good boys and to fight in
the spirit of brave American soldier?
and to go out expecting to return again.
Mingling with the voices of those wer??
the cheerful farewells of comrades ot
other batteries as they passed from
man to man, shaking hands with each,
leaving a smile and a word of encour?
agement. Rising above all this was the
hum of the hundreds gathered there,
while the notes of many a popula r air.
from the band near by, were born*
upon the summer breeze.
At 4 o'clock the order to board thf
cars was given and ten minutes later
the tug Dorothea steamed away with
barge and coaches and men. Shout af?
ter shout went up as the lines were
cast off. Handkerchiefs and banners,
large and small, were waved as the
barge began to move. Cheer after
cheer came back from the crowded
coaches, from the windows of which
floated tokens of love which may never
again be repetated. Women lingered
on the dock until the barge became a
speck in the distance and then, with
their faces bathed in tears, made their
way to houses In which it seined as if
the hand of death had woven a wreath
of woe and hung it there to tortue
those that were left behind.
Battery G came to Fort Monroe fif?
teen years ago and was the oldest bat.

members are married and leave their
