NEW YORK STOCK MARKET.
NEW YORK. Nov. 11.?Wall strt
was prepared today for an outburst
enthusiasm over storks on the part of
the general public, after yesterday's |
enthusiasm on the part of the street
itself. The grangers. Northern Pacific
and the leading Southern railways I
opened high. The public's enthusiasm |
hail apparently induced it to plaee
ders to buy stock at the opening.
The foresight of the large operators |
in making the opening level of the mar?
ket a high one was thus justified and |
they fed the eager demand of the o
siders quite freely. Prices, howei
were fairly well maintained in
first hour. hut. in spile of tie' violent
acCvity of the market, it soon became
evident that the supply of stooks was ]
fully equal to the demand.
The level was not maintained in the
last hour, when call money was marked 1
up to 2 1-2 per cent., and prices fell
away throughout the list. Earlier Kains
were wipeu out in the grangers. The
decline in the last hour was accompa- ,
nied by increased activity, indicating a|
disposition toward liquidation.

HISTORY OF THE CASE
A lloutttluii to tliu ftlunuluciit t'utitl. KoHpl
tul Train Arrive*. The tTorlitiCfl
tloitH ut Fort Nunroe
Itriif It. niK.
The County Court was engaged all
of yesterday with the trial of Charles
M. Gambriell, a soldier from the Fort,
charged with feloniously assaulting
Mrs. Carrie L.ancer by striking her with
The complainant was in court during
the trial. She is quite a pretty little
woman, but her beauty is slightly mar?
red by a sear over the left temple just
above the eye where Bhe was struck
by the euspidor.
The ease was begun immediately upon
the convening of Court in the morning.
The prisoner when arraigned pleaded
not guilty to the indictment. He is
represented by the Hon. Edgar E. Mon?
tague, who subjected the common
wealth's witness to a close cross-ex?
The Court at 1 P. M. took a recess
until 2 P. M., when the taking of tes?
timony was resumed and continued un?
til late in the afternoon. Mr. Monta?
gue, the defendant's counsel, and Mr.
Collier, the Prosecuting Attorney, ad?
dressed the jury at some length, and.
about tj P. M.. the case went to the
After half an hour's deliberation, the
jury rapped and. being ad mi ted, tiled
into the court-room, where all was at?
tention in expectation of a verdict
When the jury had been polled they
were asked, as usual, if they had agreed
upon a verdict. To the surprise of
nearly all present they replied that they
bad not. and. furthermore, that they
did not believe they ever could agree.
The judge questioned different jurors
in order to get an idea as to the ex?
tent of the disagreement, and was told
by one that they would be no nearer
a verdict if they were kept together
six months. Others seemed equally
positive of radical disagreement, and
the jury was about to be discharged,
when Comomnweallh's Attorney Col?
lier, who seemed to take a more hope?
ful view of the.matter, asked that tfta
jury be held over until the morning
in the hope of getting together, in
which event the State would be saved
the expense of another trial. Accord?
ingly, the court adjourned until 10 A.
M. today and the usual cautions
were impressed upon the jurors.
Gambriell, the prisoner, is a young
artillery recruit, 22 years of age, and
hails from Clarksville. Tenn., having
enlisted at the time of the recent de
claration of war against Spain. He
seemed strangely confident of acquittal,
and could not be made to realize that
he might be found guilty and given a
penitentiary term. Nevertheless, he
was unquestionably a bit nervous.
The ease is a sequel to the row that
occurred in the Palace saloon, on Mai
lory street, l'hoebus, on September 7
last, in which a number of enlisted
men were engaged, and in the course
of which one man was shot and wound?
ed. Mrs. Lancer's husband, a volun?
teer soldier, being at the front, she took
his place in the bar. In the course of
a row occurring there some one struck
her a blow over the eye with a cuspi?
dor. Gambriell was designated as the
man who struck her. There is some con?
flict of testimony on this point, and the
defence emphasized the fact that one
of the men who was in the thick of the
light had subsequently deserted, which
undoubtedly tended to create a doubt
in the minds of the jurors as to the
identity of the assailant.
If the positive asurance of the mem?
bers of the jury may be relied upon
there is little likelihood of an agree?
ment today, in which event the jury
will be discharged, and the ease will
then be continued for trial or a nolle
prosequi will be entered.
A HANDSOME CONTRIBUTION. \
Tile Mary Curtis Lee Chapter of
Children of the the Confederacy met at

DEBATING CLUB REORGANIZES.]
The Kecoughtan Debating Club of the
Y. M. C. A., it society that nourished
last season and afforded many interest?
ing discussions, will be reorganized at
a meeting to be held next Thursday
night at the association hall. Among
its members are many of Hampton's
best known citizens. A debate which
promises to be both interesting and
amusing has been arranged for the
I opening session. The subject chosen
for debate is an old one, but still a
burning Issue, viz: "Resolved, That uni?
versal suffrage is the fundamental
principle upon which rests our institu?
tions." Dr. T. H. Parramore and Prof.
D. R. Cowles will uphold the affirmative
view, while Dr. J. H. Peek and Rev.
A. J. Renforth will uphold the nega?
Captain D. W. Mogers will lead a
testimony service at the Y. M. C. A. on
Sunday afternoon at 4:20 o'clock. All
men are invited.
j THE STRONGEST FORTRESS.
Old Point Fortifications Not Excelled
The most extensive system of sesfr
coasl defence in the world is being rap?
idly completed at this point in con?
nection with the original fortification
of Fort Monroe. Great progress was
made on the original plans of the For?
tification Board during the war, much
of the $f>0.000.000 emergency appropria?
tion being expended here. Just why
the remaining work on these plans and
the extension of the scheme of defence
is being completed in such haste no one
appears to know. The engineer officers
in charge of the work simply express
their pleasure at the disappearance of
the annoying series of delays experienc?
ed in inaugurating the work.
The most antiquated original Fort
Monroe and the two modern disappear?
ing gun batteries and mortar battery
will shortly be increased by the addition
of three concrete emplacements for dis?
appearing guns of 10-inch calibre, and
the original work will be further
strengthened by the construction of a
concrete emplacement within the walls
of the original stone fort, in which will
be Installed a disappearing gun of 10 ot
Added to these improvements are tht
four rapid-fire guns and the 8-incti
rifles on the parapet, erected in antlol
pation of un attack by the Spanish
Meets, nil of which make Fort Monroe
the nmst formidable artificial fortifica?
tion on earth.
The completion of the plans of the
War Department will not. it is believed,
be delayed at any point on our own
coast, now that our foreign policy
makes trouble with foreign countries
possible. Guns, other than those here?
inbefore mentioned, will be erected and
the strong battery at Wtlloughby Spit
and the conversion of Kip Uaps into a
fortress may yet become more than a
rumor or dream.?.Norfolk Vlrgininn
This desirable condition is the result
of recent improvements. Ind.1. tl-ey
are not yet completed. It is directly
duo to the efforts of the citizens of the
peninsula and of the enighboring sea?
port, who called Congressional atten?
tion to the defenceless condition of
Hampton Roads, the key to the Allan
tic seaboard, and brought great press?
ure to bear on the government by
urgent appeals to and through the
State's representative in Congress.
The second two-gun battery is now
Hearing completion and satisfactory
progress is being made on the four-gun
battery adjoining it on the north, mak?
ing a total of eight modern guns ..1' the
10-inch ritle pattern with disappearing
carriages. Adjoining ties,- is what is
known as the Pines Mattery, consisting
of sixteen modern mortals. It is als.,
sai.l that mortars are to lie located in
the intervals between the new fortifica?
tions. When completed these power?
ful fortifications will make tin- harbor
easily and strongly defensible against
the most powerful Heel attacks. With
Americans behind the nuns the fortifi?
cations are practically impregnable.
