The Kind You Have Always Bought
NO SPANISH SPY.
A] Drunken Mun's Ravings tho Cans
of a. Sensation.
fctyaln has not yet begun to fiootl the
army posts; and navy-yards of the,
United States with .spies, notwithstand?
ing a wild and wooly statement to the
rirrect that a Spanish emmisary had
vn arrested at the Norfolk Navy
yard, which was telegraphed broadcast
throughout the country last night by a
Portsmouth newspapi r man.
The rumor was referred to the navy
yard ollleials, who promptly branded
it as nn unqualified rake out of the
whol? cloth. Nobody even resembling
a Spaniard, much less a "sjiy," had
been seen at the yard. No arrests of
civilians had been made. Naval olll
cers for the most part laughed heartily
at the rumor, but one veteran, holding
a. high office, looked grave and said:
"These Irresponsible would-be news?
paper men, wbo send out unfounded
reports of this character, no; only
bring the profession of journalism Into
disrepute, but they make statements
calculated to provoke grave complica?
tions in public affairs."
The story, it seems, grew out of the
arrest of a drunken man named
Thompson, who claimed to be a Span?
iard and who said he wanted to light
the United States.

In which event the umpire shall decid.?

To rule f.1, which relates to tho sus

lA reprctsen'ta't'lvo of tho Virginian
was talking the'other day with a vet?

L/llie system, lie was a bravo lighter
for the South during [ho late war, nnd
the principal conviction 1:: his. mind
just now is that the Unted States could

"Those Spaniards wouldn't be' In It,"
said he. ' and all we want, is to get a
whack at I hem. There are some poopl.
who love the almighty dollar so well
they .ire afraid to get into trouble with
nhoth ?? country. Well, wc haven't got
any surplus of ?ho almighty dollar
down here, .and that cons! letatlon don't
afTect us much. If war Is declared
there will be many old veterans' who
will fill Int.. line. They will bo the

show -the fining generation a thing or

Ltess sanguine is a strapping six
footer, who is one of Uncle Sam's best
workmen in the Norfolk navy yard, lie
was discussing the situation somewhat
tremulously and summed up his posi?
tion thus: "They will have to catch
me first, If they expect me to fight. I
couldn't tight anyway. No sir! If they
11111 a soldier on each side of me, and
one behind me with a bayonet, I might
march along in some s'>rt of fashion
until some one said 'Spanish,' then 1
would drop dead." Fortunately for the
reputation of the country for brave
men, this individual belongs lo a lim?
It has gotten to bo quite a common
joke, though, for people to solemnly
assert that they are going to the Dis?
mal Swamp if war is declared. Enough
people have declared their intentions
in tills direction to convert that famous
morass into a human beehive, and a
common form of salutation among
many is "When are you going to the
Dismal Swamp?" This is more or less
a merry jeet.
A very small Krambleton boy?he has
just blossomod out In knickerbockers?
has hit on even a better scheme. He
ha? made his father promise him, if
Spain nnd the United States get to
fighting, to pump out the cistern In the
hick yard, and lower his mother und
I himself Into it every day, also his little
chair. He proposes to stay above
1 ground during the night, though.
A jack tar formerly for two years In
service aboard tho little torpedo boat
Stiletto, has Just enlisted on the Puri?
tan. "It's the closest lifo In the world,"
he said, referring to his' experience.
"Sometimes we had to fairly double up
like jack knives. No mm who has not
been to sea in a torpedo boat knows
what it is to bo uncomfortable. They
are wonderful erafl. This Winslow.
here, is big compared with the Stiletto.
1 have been over most of the world,
land and sea, but the roughe-'t experi?
ence I ever had was on that little cigar
of a. boat coming down the coast In a
gale. The hoys don't Use the monitors
niiiieh, but thay are unmcasurca'biy
roomier. There i? so much more of
them. iA'ft>er the first three weeks of it,
they all swear that when they get free
they will never go near a ship ngnln.
but, when tho time is up, some way, the
?temptation to enlist again Is almost
beyond them. I know how it Ih my?
self. I've fought against It for five or
six years, but when the Maino went up
nnd I heard that Uncle Sam wanted
some roori to take their place, I couldn't
stand it any longer, so came right up
and enlisted like a little man. I hope
we will have Sonic fighting. 1 think
the Puritan can sink anything afloat."
The Interest' the entire public Is tak?
ing in the situation is evidenced by
the fact tha: pOolc still talk of little
else but "tiie latest war news." as they
call it, and the slightest information,
local or otherwise, Is eagerly grabbed
and discussed to shreds. When the
Terror left the yard about a week ago,
the wharves were suddenly black with
spectators. A salute fired in honor of
Governor Tunnell, of Delaware, yes?
terday hid the effect of bringing
crowds to the riverside, the people
thinking that a warship was going out
or coming in.
The Interest is beginning to assume
a beneficent gui*c. and a large number
of Norfolk people have expressed their
desire to contribute either to th? fam?
ilies of the Maine victims or to the
monument fund. There has been talk
also of one or more theatrical benefits.

James .Martin, ami not iu-s sheriff of

mission merchant of llazle-ton, who was

ment later tho shooting commchcetl.
He heard no order given to lire.
tArlo Pardee Platt, or llazlctnn, man?
ager of the Pardee department store,
gave a clear and detailed statement if
the whole affair. He was one of the
deputies and told how the property
owners In ITtazleton and vicinity ap?
pointed special watchmen to guard
their property at night from the riotous
mob of strikers, and how they pu:
chased one hundred Sprlntieltl rifles and
bivech loading shot guns for these
watchmen. These were the arms that
were afterward given to ;he deputies.
The witness saw the sheriff halt tho
strikers at Iiattimer on September 10,
nnd advise them to disperse. The sher?
iff was knocked to his knees and pom?
meled by the strikers, some of whom
flourished revolvers nnd knives and
tried to kill him. The witness left the
deputies and rushed to the sheriff's
rescue, and tried to stop the striker.",
luit his gun would not work. The rest
of the strikers rushed toward the depu?
ties, While the witness tried to rescue
the sheriff he heard a shot and then
came the volley. There was no shoot?
ing after the volley nnd the strikers
scattered. The witness did not shoot,
and does not know who gave the order

against Mr. Rwart, Senator Puller says
that he has "neither the native ability

him for a Judicial position," and adds
that "even if he had sufficient ability
and legal learning lv> is wanting In the

says ithat Mr. ISwart in without exper?

Jurisdiction, Federal or State. He also
alleges ether disqualifications, and at?

is one that, while a member of Congress
Mr. Ewnrt sold his public documents,
and that while on the bench of the

on railroad passes, notwithstanding
there was a State law t'i the contrary,
