SAY THERE IS HOPE
Joe Cunningham's Condition
THE CRISIS NEAR ATHAND
It Was Said Veeterday That If He Liyfd Two
Days Longer He Will Have Fasset!
the Danger Point. Other
The news that came from the bed?
side of Mr. Joseph J. Cunningham at
noon yesterday strengthened the nick?
ering flame of hope in the breasts of
his friends and Imparted to them a
bright and cheerful air. It was good
to see them and hear them talk, despite
the lingering dread that after all his
apparent improvement may turn out
to be but the forerunner of the grim
messenger of death. Everybody is
anxious for Mr. Cunningham to recov?
er. Even those who do not hesitate to
declare their disapproval of his al?
leged interference with Mr. Richard?
son's affairs, express the hope that a
kind Providence may spare his life.
Dr. Plecker, the physician in charge
of the case, was greatly encouraged
yesterday. Mr. Cunningham, after
passing the night in refreshing natural
slumber, was cheerful throughout the
day, and at the hour of closing this
report his condition was pronounced
satisfactory. At no time has he been
unconscious, a circumstance which, in
view of the fact that the doc tors admit
that part of the man's brain was car?
ried away, is looked upon by intelli?
gent laymen as being most remarkable,
whatever the learned physicians may
say or think. This is taken to Indicate
that the injury to that organ is m>t so
alarming as was at first reported and
that it furnishes the basis for the semi
professional opinion that the wounded
man will get well. None of the doctors
who have seen him. however, has ven?
tured to indulge in an unqualified
statement concerning the case. Those
who take the most hopeful view wisely
allow themselves ample latitude for
future explanations. Yesterday after?
noon a well informed gentleman who
saw Mr. Cunningham during the day
remarked that if he lives two days
longer the chances will be in his favor.
But from an equally reliable source It
was learned that the crisis is not likely
to be reached for a week. Various
complications, it is stated, may arise,
among which are tetanus, mentngius
and others almost as certainly fatal.
But the astonishing vitality displayed
by Mr. Cunningham may carry him
Careful notes were made by the phy?
sicians when the wound was examined
and dressed, all of which, of course,
will probably be made public next
month, when Mr. Richardson's trial
will occur. It was rumored yesterday
that the gun used by Mr. Richardson
was loaded with buckshot, but the
story was generally denied. The doc?
tors decline to tell what they know
about it. As Mr. Richardson stood at
a distance of less than ten feet from
Mr. Cunningham when he filed, a
charge of buckshot would have caused
instant death unless his aim had been
very wild. Some of the shot struck
Mr. Cunningham in the breast, but It
does not appear that they are regarded
as being in the least serious. It does
not seem reasonable to believe, there?
fore, that they^were buckshot.
The wounded man is receiving the
very best medical attention, and if he
does not live it will certainly not be the
fault of his physicians. They are sim~
ply trying to bring him back to healtn
and strength without bothering them?
selves about the causes which placed
him in their care.
Officers Elected for the Ensuing
The second day's session of the third
annual meeting of the Association of
Surgeons of the Southern Railway
Company, at the Hygeia Hotel. Old
Point, was called to order at 10 o'clock
yesterday morning. The session up to
the noon hour was devoted to the read?
ing of papers and an address. The first
paper on the program was by Surgeon
P. D. Grim, of Hot Springs. Ark. The
subject was the "Relation of Rheu?
matic Afflictions to Railway Surgery."
"Functional Examination of Railway
Employees." by Surgeon-Occullst J. H.
Shorter, of Macon, Ga., followed, aftei
which Surgeon-Oeculiist Dunbar Roy.
of Atlanta, was introduced. The title
of his paper was, "Do pathological
changes occur in the eye after injury
to the spinal cord?" An interesting
number on the program was the "Re?
port of two cases of railway surgery."
by Dr. J. A. Crawford, of Rock Hill
S. C. The morning session closed wltb
an address by Dr. Frank H. Caldwell.
of Wayeross, Ga., superintendent and
chief surgeon or the Plant System.
The afternoon session was taken up
with an address by Dr. Willis F. West?
moreland, of Atlanta, Ga., on the sub?
ject of "Injuries to the bones of the
upper extremity," and the selection of
officers. The president for the ensuing
year is Dr. George Ross, of Richmond
Vice President, Dr. S. R. Miller, of
Knoxville, Tenn.; Secretary and Treas?
ury, Dr. Thomas A. Hancock, of At?
lanta, Ga. On the executive commltte?
are Dr. George R. Dean, of Spartan
burg, S. C: Dr. Moran, of North Car?
olina, and Dr. Copeland. of Birmlng
ham, Ala. The next place of meetlns
will be selected by the executive com?
mittee. . The members greatly enjoyed
their visit to Old Point and are loud in
their praise of the excellent manner in
which the Hygeia cared for them.
Much disappointment was occasioned
by the failure of Dr. Walter Wyman
surgeon-general of the U. S. Marine
Hospital Service, to attend the meeting
He was to have delivered an addres?
on the "Recognition and managernenl
of yellow fever outbreaks."
Owing to the absence of President C
M. Drake, of Atlanta. Dr. T. D. Walker
of Cochran, Ga.. presided over the Con?
THE Y. M. C. A. AT OLD POINT.
Religious Opportunities for the Soldiers
A tent covering a space 20 by 30 feet
has been set up at Old Point by the
Young Men's Christian Asse Nation,
and every night hereafter, as> long as
the war lasts and there ar"_. soldiers
stationed on the reservation, a religious
meeting of some kind will be'conducted
in It. Secretary Kent, ofr Newport
News, and Secretary Irons, of this city,
worked like beavers all day Tuesday
getting things in readiness to begin the
campaign against gin on that evening
i and they succeeded. Mr. Henry
j Schmelz, the well known Hampton
' banker, addressed the first nu eting and
Impressed the goodsized congregation
of volunteers In attendance with the
importance of becoming soldiers of the
Cross. Besides being an earnest,
thoughtful speaker Mr. Schmelz is a
gentleman of high and exemplary
Christian character, anil hence his ap?
peals are listened to with profound
The second meeting, which was held
last night, was more successful than
the first, although Messrs. Kent and
Irons had not completed the congrega?
tional comforts of the tout. The Rev.
C. B. Bryan, rector of St. John's Epis?
copal church, delivered it fervent ad?
dress. The service was very enjoyable.
The popular sacred soups adopted by
the Y. M. C. A. are used and in a short
time it is hoped to have a first-class
choir. During the day the tent will be
open to visitors and the daily papers,
magazines and other literature will he
provided for the entertainment of those
It is not known yet who will have
charge of the work at Old Point. In
case Mr. Kent goes to Chiekatnauga it
will devolve upon Secretary Irons, of
the Hampton association. It could not
be placed in better hands. Mr. Irons
is not only a self-sacrificing Christian
gentleman, but an able worker in the
field of moral and religious effort. He is
beloved by all who know him. In any
event, he will aid In the conduct of the
CATCH MT LEG!
How a Gallant Volunteer Rescued an
Last Tuesday afternoon a well dreS3>*
ed lady, while tripping lightly down
the gang-plank of a local steamer that
bad just tied up at the Old Point dock,
dropped her umbrella. Down it went
into the deep water and passed out of
sight. A moment later, however. It
rose to the surfaeti and serenely and
defiantly floated between the dock and
the steamer. That the owner of the
umbrella was pained by her loss quick?
ly became apparent to all who saw her.
but to none more than to one of the
Maryland volunteers who. with a com?
rade, was sunning himself on the pier.
He took in the situation with lightning
rapidity. Then, turning to the man at
his side, said:
'?Jack, catch my leg!"
Jack caught it and in less time than
It takes to tell the story the volunteer
was hanging, head down, over the end
of the pier. With the steamer likely to
bump against the dock at any mo?
ment, the situation was a precarious
one. But there was a woman in the
case and that settled It with the sol?
"All right. Jack," said he. after he
had been down a couple oftminutes,
"I've got It." Jack straightened him?
self for a steady pull and quickly land?
ed the volunteer on the dock, who with
a bow and smile handed the umbrella
to the woman and resumed' his seat
with as little concern as If he had been
ripping rifle balls at a pack of pesky

"OHIO" .IN JAPAN.
Americans are held in the greatest
esteem by the people of Japan. A
tourist from the United States need
never worry about courtesies in the.
land of the Mikado. That peculiarly
progressive people regard the men and
women who bear alliance to the Stars
and Stripes as the possessors of a civ?
ilization that should be their model in
Captain "Joe" Fifer, of the United
Slates navy, had an experience in
Japan which his messmates never tire
recounting, says the San Francisco
Chronicle. When "Joe" was in An?
napolis his fellow cadets used to say
that he would pay dearly for his shush?
ing wit, and it seems that the manes
of many a discomfited professor and
student have been properly avenged.
It came Captain Fifer's turn to make,
a cruise to the Occident, and he pre?
pared for the long trip with great
trepidation. He was wont to consult a
fortune teller whenever he undertook
a sail, and was usually gladdened by
assurances of a safe voyage and speedy
return. On this occasion he was woun?
ded most deeply. The diver into the
future informed the incorrigible com
mander that the predictions of bio
former associates would at last be real?
ized. What the nature of the fate in
store for Fifer was the mystic person
would not divulge He was left to
choose between a thousand humilia?
tions and death.
After weeks of ploughing through
the deep sea the cruiser arrived at
Japan. Captain Fifer and his staff
went ashore as usual to ascertain
whether their limbs had lost any of
their efficiency on land. Every Jap?
anese they encountered recognized
them as visitors ftorn.the far-off re?
public, and saluted them with great
respect. The American sailors finally
encountered a party of aristocratic
Japanese who approached them and
bent low in' salutation. Each of the
natives pronounced the national word
of welcome in loud tones, which in
American phonography sounds like a
rendition of the name Ohio. This was
repeated several times, until the air
was full of "Ohio. Ohio. Ohio." Captain
Fifer expressed the greatest surprise at
the sagacity of the Japanese. He was
an avowed resident of Ohio when at
home, and always championed the
cause of his state.
"Repeat that honeyed word again,"
requested Captain Fifer. "How did
they manage to find It out, anyhow?"
"Ohio. Ohio. Ohio." came in a chorus
from the nobles.
"Yes, gentlemen, it is Ohio, and], by
Jove! it is Cuyahoga county, too, gen?
