A DOUBTFUL DENIAL
Did Sarah Curtis See Mr.
STORY SAID TO BE HERS
The Girl Was Employed at the Residence
of Mr. Klllott Hadglos, Near Air.
There seems to be no doubt that long
before Mr. R. V. Richardson is placed
on trial for the shooting of Mr. Joseph
J. Cunningham, many interesting facts
bearing upon the causes which led to
the tragedy will be laid before the pub?
lic. No event has occurred here for
years with which gossip so persistently
busied itself as it has with the unfor?
tunate affair of last Monday. This is
due, of course, to the standing of the
families and the fact that both men
are well known and have many friends.
The latest rumors afloat relate to the
circumstances Immediately preceding
the shooting. One which was going
about yesterday is to the effect that a j
colored girl named Sarah Curtis, who
was employed at the home of Mr. Kl
liott Hudgins. saw Mr. Cunningham in
Mr. Richardson's back yaru. This she
might easily have done, if the alleged
intruder was there, as the rear of Mr.
Richardson's lot adjoins that occupied
on Monday by Mr. Elliott, the distance
between the two houses being perhaps
not more than fifty feet. As the story
runs, Mr. Cunningham when seen'by
the girl was engaged in conversation
with a colored man. Sarah, it is said,
paid but slight attention to the two
men until she saw them suddenly sep?
arate, one of them running rapidly to?
ward a gale which affords an outlet to
the lot in which Richardson and Cun?
ningham were seen by Ennis Lee and
Yesterday afternoon the correspond?
ent of the Daily Press called at the
girl's home In the East End and suc?
ceeded in obtaining an interview with
her. When asked to say whether she
had seen Mr. Cunningham at Mr.
Richardson's on Monday she threw up
her hands and declared with a flourish
that she doesn't even know him. How
could she say, therefore, that she had
seen him. She was at work at Mr.
Hudgins; but was too busy to pay any
attention to what was going on around
her. Then she was asked if she had
seen any man in Mr. Richardson's back
yard. To this question she returned
an evasive reply, simply saying that
she doesn't know anything about the
trouble and doesn't want to know any?
thing. Although Sarah's mother and
sister, who were present during the in?
terview, were not near the Hudgins
residence, they strongly corroborated
the girl's statement. But when told
that the statement attributed to Sarah
came from persons of high standing
the faces of the three women took on a
Whether Sarah Curtis really saw Joe
Cunningham at Mr. Richardson's on
Monday morning remains to be deter?
mined. But the doubtful manner in
which her denial was made affords
room for the belief that she knows
more than she is willing to tell. The
girl and her mother are tortured by the
fear that if the authorities hear that
she knows anything about the shooting
she will be arrested and locked up.
Mr. Cunningham passed another
quiet day and when heard from last
evening was resting comfortably. Dr.
Plecker, his physician, stated plainly
that the chances are now favorable to
his recovery. He will lose an eye, how?
ever, and will wear an ugly scar on his
head. The fear that some of the shot
had failed to pass out and would soon
cause serious and perhaps fatal compli?
cations appears to have been practical!}'
abandoned. Dr. Plecker says that his
patient would probably have shown
symptoms of an alarming character by
yesterday had his vound been of a fa?
tal nature. ^

That Is, the Phoebus Postoffice Ap?
Leading Republicans here were not
pleased when the news came that Mr.
Benjamin Miller had received the ap?
pointment of postmaster at Phoebus.
There is no personal objection to Mr.
Miller. The onlv thing that is said
against him is that he has not been an
active party wonker, and that is re?
garded by some of the prominent Re?
publicans here as being sufficient to put
him out of the race.
According to rumor Mr. Miller is
backed by ex-Congressman Harry Lib
by, in whose employ he has been for
some time. Mr. Libby Is chairman of
the county committee and is said to
have thrown the influence of that or?
ganization in his employee's favor. This
the friends of the other applicants, sev?
eral in number, do not like. Attorney
Power, of Phoebus, a life-long and in?
fluential Republican, and ex-Postmast?
er Larabee, who held the office during
the Harrison administration, hoped to
secure Mr. Libby's endorsement, but, it
is said, learned some time ago that the
former Congressman had pledged his
support to Mr. Miller. Mr. Power's
friends claim that his service for the
party clearly entitled him to the place.
But Mr. Larabee's supporters, of
course, say as much for him. The only
question is, which has the larger fol?

IMPUDENT COLORED GIRLS.
Vile Language Used Toward a Well
A well known lady of this city, the
wife of a popular official, was subject?
ed a few days ago to a torrent of vile
abuse by a number of colored girls
Standing- on the street, within hearing
distance of neighboring buildings and
utterly regardless of passers-by. these
young vixens indulged in an abusive
harranifue which would have put a
band of harlots to shame.
Had any one who heard them Inter?
fered he would have had a light on his
hands. Only an othcer could have
stopped the wagging of their foul
tongues, but unfortunately there was
none near and the lady had tu submit
to their vicious tirade. When they had
discharged the last shot of obscenity at
their command they went away, but
only to be followed a little later by an?
other gang. None of them haJ been in?
terfered with, the victim of their
abuse having simply warned them
against mistreating a little boy.
The suggestion is not made because
the offenders in this case are colored
girls?It would be exactly the same if
they were white?but there should be
some means by which such outrageous
conduct could be stopped. As a matter
or fact it is certain that there is. Then
let the law be enforced in the most
rigid manner. A month in the county
jail on a short allowance of bread and
water would not be punishment too se?
vere for girls, whether white or black,
who are guilty of such conduct us that
SOLD LIQUOR ON SUNDAYS.
That is the Charge Against S. J.
It has been learned this week that
Daniel Washington, the colored man
who was fatally injured on the Chesa?
peake & Ohio railway, last Sunday, two
miles above this city, owes his death
to a county gin mill run by a man
named S. J. Hopkins. Washington and
several companions, it is alleged, went
to the place and purchased liquor.
Common wealth's Attorney Collier
said yesterday that steps have been
taken to prosecute Hopkins. lie is a
white man. The better class of color?
ed people very properly insist that if it
can he shown that he sold liquor to
Washington he should be severely dealt
with. Mr. Collier takes the same view
of the matter and hence it is probable
that this rural gin miller will have a
peck of trouble on his hands before he
is a week older.

PRAYER BROKE THE DROUGHT.
The Supplication Was for "a Gully

remarked Mr. George Dallas. "There
had been no rain for weeks, and the
corn and cotton were burning up in the
fields. The creeks had begun to dry up.
and even springs that had never been
known to fail gave signs that their
supply of the aqueous fluid was run?

and oppressing the hardworking sons
and daughters of the land with a dis?

distress that might take on starvation's
"About this time the religious peo?
ple of the county began to hold
prayer meetings to invoke assistance of
the Deity. In every community the
good old farmers and their families as?
sembled to pray for rain. This was at
an epoch when the scientific ideas
about producing rain from explosives
had not gained a foothold. and no
fakirs went about. as they lately
have done in Kansas and other parts
of the West, offering to bring showers
at so much per shower.
"No. indeed; these were the times
of single faith and belief in the ef?
ficacy of supplication to the Omni?
potent. In one neighborhood in the
countv of Coweta, where the drought
was particularly severe, a prayer meet?
ing had been called for a certain day,
and at the time appointed a congrega?
tion of several hundred sufferers met
to beg that the drought be broken.
It chanced that a new preacher, who
had but lately come to that location,
and who was. as T remember, an ex?

hours after the delivery of that prayer
