>avnl iiill.
V-"A?HINGTON. June 7.— Congress ad
journed sine die at 5 o'clock this eve
j;inp. For the Senate it was a day of
waiting; The naval appropriation bill —
the siumWing-block to rinal adjourn- ;
::-oi.i. couJd not be agreed to by the con--|
urrt-es of tiio-two Houses, and the dis- i
i-.^rocment was roporti»d to the Senate
v.iriy in the day.
The report was accepted, but the.
Senate refused to request another con
irrence. although Mr. Hale expressed
the belief that an agreement might be
jvached.
There was an evident disposition on
th*? part of the Senate •to make trouble
i: the conlerrees should recede from the
Syr.ate amendment as to ocean surveys,
iind it -was deemod the wiser policy to
Eiford the House an opportunity again
to pass upon the question.
At 3 o'clock, after several recesses had
been taken, the Senate w-as advised that
she House had concurred in the Senate
amendments remaining in controversy,
and soon afterward the House resolu
tion ■providing for final adjournment was
■passed, J with an amendment fixing the
hour at o o'clock, June 7th.
It was not until 4:40. twenty minutes
before the hour fixed for adjournment,
that the President pro tempore of the
Svnate (Mr. Frye) announced his signa
ture to the naval bill. With some other
measures, this was hurried to the Pre
sident, who was waiting in Iris room in
ihe Capitol, and was signed by him a
few minutes later. .
PURELY SOCIAL.
The concluding hour of the session was
purely a social session. No business be
yond the adoption of the customary re
solution of thanks to the Chair (Mr.
Frye) was accomplished. Mi". Frye ac

The closing work of the Senate was
y-f rfunciory, attended by no exciting in
cidents such as often occur at the end
in? of a session, and when the gavel
fell expressions of relief and gladness
v.ere heard from all the senators.
One hundred and fifty-eight pension
bills were nassed.
eLection laws.
An attempt was made by Mr. Chandler
in obtain consideration for his resolution
instructing the Committee on Privileges
and Elections to inquire into the coiit
?iitutionality of the election ' laws of
cen.a.in Stales.
Mt. Kerry and Mr. Pettus simultaneous
ly objected:
At 11:43 the Senate took a recess for one.

On reconvening Mr. Hale reported furr
ther disagreement on the naval bill. He
moved insistence on the Senate amend
ments, and tliat a further conference be
.(skod.
Mr. Chandler inquired why another was
required; Sf the conferrees had determined
not to agree.
Mr. Hale replied that an agreement in
most matters is almost always possible;
There was nothing in dispute except the
cadet and ocean-survey matters. The
armor-plate matter had been settled.
THE SENATE'S SURRENDER.
"The Senator means," said Mr. Bacon,
of Georgia, "that the House ha.:; acceptoo
the Senaie's surrender."
.Mr. Bacon contended that the Senate
e^mferrees* position would be made
wronger by not asking: another confer
'"-■;!."-.
-Mr. Hale modified his motion so as not
>o rrquest a further conference. The re
port and motion were agreed to.

In marked contrast with the exciting
mcidcnls attending, the bitter struggles
of the closing hours oi the session.
Speaker Henderson laiddown his gavel at
5 o'clock this evening, at the conclusion
of one of the most picturesque sessions
which; have ever occurred in the hall of
the House of Representatives. Party pas :
sion and personal rancor, which have
brought the House to .'the brink of actual
riot several, times during the last forty
eight hours; gave way in. theclosing half
hour to good fellowship, which found
vent in a Patriotic outburst that stirred
the crowded galleries to the highest" pitch
of enthusiasm.
During the brief recess taken within
tJiirty minute's of the time fixed for final
adjournment, to give .the President an
opportunity to affix his signature to the
bills that were being rushed .to him for
approval, a group, of members, led ': by
Messrs. Mercer, of Nebraska: Bail, of
Texas; Fitzgerald, of • Massachusetts, and
Tawney. of Minnesota, congregated in the
arena to the left of the, Speaker's rostrum,
and began singing Patriotic airs. The
galleries were banked to the doors.
"Columbia." the: Gem of the Ocean."
"Auld Lang Syne," "The Red, "White, and
Blue," successfully rang out, and as the
singing proceeded members joined the
groups, until, without- regard :to age or.
party, the entire membership of the
House joined in the chorus.
"DIXIE."
i The spectators in the galleries applaud-
I ed each song until the strains of "Dixie"
filled the hall. Then. their unbounded en
thusiasm broke out", in wild cheers. But
the "enthusiasm .Dixie evoked was Hot to
be compared with the remarkable demon-,
stration which followed, when; in a clear,
ringing tenor, Mr. Fitzgerald, of Massa
chusetts, started the national anthem
with its inspiring words, "Through; the
dawn's early light." In an instant evory
man, woman,- and child in the g-alleries
was on his or. her feet joining in the. sing
ing. The mighty chorus from the thou
sands of throats reverberated through the
hall, making the pulses leap and the
blood tingle. It was a magnificent and
soul-inspiring spectacle.
The ladies kept time to the rythm of the
music with ' their handkerchiefs, and the
men beat the measure with their hands.
The Speaker, pausing as he entered the
hall, raised his voice also.
The excitement produced by the scene
overcame a white-haired old man in one :
of the public galleries, and when the song
ceased he jumped up on his seat and
shouted: "That is the songs of the angels
m Heaven." He was- plainly no crank,
but as he. showed a disposition to
harangue the House he was quickly eject
ed. ■ : ' ,
HENDERSON'S FAREWELL.
After "Speaker" Henderson "had made a
gracfifai_^f^rewo!l;,.s^eecii,- th«nk'ii;g :: - the
members for r r their courtesy,: -and de
claring the House, adjourned, the "mem
bers testified to his popularity by singing
"For He's a Jolly Good Fellow."* and the
reporters in the newspaper galleries cele-r
brated - their emancipation from their
arduous duties by singing the "Doxology"."
. The first work of the House to-day .was
a reversal of its action last night in turn
ing down the conferrees on.' the naval
bill for yielding on the item relating to
ocean surveys. Over night, the sentiment
of the House underwent a coriiplete
change, and to-day the members voted
by a large majority -to accept outright
the Senate amendment, which goes much
farther than the compromise which the
conferrees offered last night. The new
conferrees, led by Mr. Cannon. Who had
brought in a compromise which they,,con
sidered more satisfactory, were ignomin
iously pushed aside. It is a distinct vic
tory for the old conferrees. Messrs. Foss,
of Illinois; Dayton, of ' West Virginia, and
Cummings, of New York...
LENTZ STILL IN EVIDENCE.
The other feature of the closing day
was the course of Mr. Lentz, of Ohio, in
blocking unanimous consent. For three
days he has objected to bills. beca.use the
majority would not allow the testimony
in the Coour d'Alene investigation to be
printed, and he maintained his position
to the end. His action- caused many
hi_*art-aches. He only relented when bills
behind which lurked possible votes in the
coming campaign were brought up. On
such occasions he gracefully side-stepped
and allowed them to go through.
■ When the House reconvened at 10 o'clock
this morning, it was still Tuesday, under
the executive fiction. As the conferrees
on the naval bill were not ready to re
port, the House- adjourned, until 12
o'clock, when the legislative day of
Thursday began.
After some amusing pleasantries be
tween Mr. Grosvenor and Mr. Sulzer. a
bill was passed to amend the car-coupler
law. sdtks to require railways to report
monthly, under ,oath, to the Interstate
Commerce Commission, all accidents to
their employees, and to make reports as
to all collisions between trains; also, a
bill to "authorize the payment of travel
pay to enlisted men t in the. army.
Mr. Lentz then brought matters to a
standstill.: Some of the Republicans at
tempted .to circumvent: him by getting
their friends on the Democratic side to
offer their bills.
LENTZ-HAY- CLASH.
Mr. Hay. of Virginia, asked for .the
consideration of . a bill '.to make ' Dcs
Moines. la., a subport. of entry.- and. as a
result got into a warm tilt with the
Ohioan. who promptly interposed an ob
jection. '
■ Mr. Hay displayed considerable 'temper,
and' was proceeding to- criticise Mr.
Lentz's course in persisting, in his 4 atti-,
tude. when the latter objected to his
statement. ? -; ... - ' ■;
"I will not receive a" lecture,.from the
gentleman from Virginia," he announced.
"Until the Republicans agree^ to the
printing of the Coeur d'Alene testimony,
I shall object to all this class of legisla
tion." . '.:
A few moments, afterward, Mr." Cannon."
on behalf of the "conferrees on' the naval
bill;: formally, reported' another disagree

recede, and concur in the Seriate amend

ISLEOF WIGHT COURTHOUSE, VA.,
June 7.— (Special.)— The fact that the trial
of A. CV Gilligan, for the .murder of C.
B. Turner, had begun in reality became
known to. the people of Isle of Wight
very rapidly, and the .' court-room this
morning was packed. to its full 'capacity
when .the third day's proceedings were
commenced. The court was very punctual
in opening, and, as "indicated in yester
day's Dispatch roport," a stenographer—.
D. S.Phlegar— was present to take the
testimony for' both the prosecution and
the defence.
After the jury had been called Colonel
■Baker, of counsel" for defence, directed
the attention of the Court to the fact that •
one of the jurors was reading "a !
newspaper, and asked the Court to in-,
struct the jury that . they niust refrain
from reading newspapers which, contained
accounts of -the trial. ."-
The first witness called was E. W. .
Smith,; a civil engineer of Norfolk* Va.
Mr. Smith stated' that be wsii a. r.ephew,
of Mrs. C H. Turner;, 'that 'hV was visit
ing his aunt on Wednesday. December.
27th. and left that evening; for JN'urrolk,
but was recalled by a tele^rurn telling
of tile- homicide. Witness, was at this
point shown a diagram of the Turner
residence and sr-ene of the boxni<:i'.l«, which
the Commoiiwea.lth -claimed t «■■■". be
a .true .diagram: of the premises, and
which was udmitted by the. Court. ; ;.
.:At this juncture Judge ; Hint on iaised
the point that the. pioceedings were-not
regular.: as the "corpus do) icii" 'should be.
proved first, -bat that he would press no
objection: at this ; time. / . '
•Colonel ßoykin stated that they only
desired to show the scene of .the- homi
cide, and that the Common wealth would,
as soon as possible, establish the. carpus
delicti. . . ""'-■ ": .: • ; _"
.■Mr. : Smith acknowledged that he "had'
drawn the" diagram :' from measurements
made by lumielf. and 1 , y.-'itlioiit jnstru

rate: . that:: he. had . told the Common
wealth's Attorney; so, and was requested
by him' to make: a" diagram, and- that all
of the: suggestion made by the dingram
emanated from Colonel Boykin. The dia
gram showed where the body of .Turner
was found. .There, was snow on . the
ground, and the <lrawing had on it cer
tain tracks, described -by the witness as
"a - broad-toed and pointed-toed . tra-"k."
The position and place, where these m-eks
were first found and where . they led to
were the subjects of a rigid crpss-exarni
nation from all the attorneys.
7". A. TURNER CAI.L.T2D. .
P. A. Turner was then called. He said
.that he was no relation- of C. B. Turner's,
but had been living' with R, R. Turner,
who married bis aunt, and was a brother
of C...8. Turner's. He lived a quarter
of a. mile from the scene of the boiru.c-ide;
was ar. home on Wednesday night, De
cembor 27th. and was awakened by Singa
Jones, a negro— one of : his hands — who
came to a side window .and. said: "Mr.
Angus, Mr. Beverly Turner has shot him
self." .Continuing, witness said: "I- went
at once to Turner's. This was between
S and It o'clock. When we got near the
scene we heard screaming, and saw peo
ple with a lamp. 1 We looked over *the
fence and saw: the body of Beverly Tur-j
ncr lying on the ground/ Miss Isabella
Turner was crying, and Mrs. Turner, his
wife, .was screaming. Mrs. Turner re- I
marked. "I know who killed Mr. Turner.' "
"Mrs. Turner asked me to go and ex
amine the .body of Mr. Turner, and to i
look out and see if I could find any j
weapons* I told her that I would hunt
for weapons, but would not touch the
body, as I had no right to. Miss Isabella
Turner brought a small lamp. I could not j
find any weapon. Mr. Turner was lying!
dead, his head against the post, one leg
bent inwards, and a gaping wound on the.
right side of the neck. No one was
present when I got there but Mrs. and
Miss Turner, but afterwards David Cot
ton, (colored), George Warren, W- E.
Howie, and Thomas Turner came up." .
Witness noticed the pointed and round
toed tracks. He was closely and minute
ly-examined as to these tracks, which
both sides seem. to .lay a great', deal of'
stress upon. The witness, ; when showed
clothes which the Commonwealth istated
were taken off the body.: of C. B. Turner,,
identified' the mackintosh s . and coat, but
failed to identify positively the hat. glove,
and overshoes. :
When court resumed.at 3 P. M., George
Warren was placed on .the stand; He
lives -near Fergusson's' wharf, about half
a . mile - from the Turner, residence. He
was. he said, awakened by his wife in
the night of December 27th. ."She awoke
me," he -said, "by saying: 'Get tip at
once, there is some one who wants you.
Mr. Beverly Turner has been- shot.' I
talked with David Cotton, the colored boy, ;
who" brought' me the information. . ;When
I got to the PiCeheoC. the killing I : saw
Mrs. Turner and Miss. 'lsabella Turner
■there. " < - -.' : ' ' ■ '■ ■•- -. ' ■'
THE TRACKS; AGAIN.
"Turner's body was lying. face upwards,
with head thi-o wn : back. His ; th roa t was
cut in aragged .manner, his right hand
by his side, . his left hand on. his breast,
his right leg drawn -up, his left, leg
straight." . I searched for ; weapons, ; but
did;not find as. much as a stick. J found
allJof Turner's guns in: his house. Miss
Isabella .Turner first called, ray. attention
to: the pointed arid round toed tracks.; -.'. \
At this point Colonel Boykin exhibited
the diagram, and asked witness to point
out the spots where , the tracks were. This
was' 'objected tO;;by the defence-" over
ruled,.-and an:: exception noted. ; Here,
Deputy-Sheriff -Johnson as a'

■Mrs. Agnes Turner, .wife' of C. B. Turner,
told you: on the night of December 1 27 tli
that, she- knew- who had killed- her"hus-' :
■band.'!. . :. ... -
■ The prosecution objected to this quo?-.
on the groundrthat the defence: had"
no right. to ask the: witness to brin^ in a
declaration of what c Mrs. Turner, did or.
said, and that Howie's answer Was based
on hearsay evidence; ■
JudgG Hiriton contended that he .had a
perfect right ; to ask' this question, .as it
■would show, and prove that Mrs. Turner
was certain that she' could tell who was
the person who killed her. husband.
:: The jury were' taken - out bei'ore this
question. Avas answered and Howled an
swer was as follows: /'When I got to"
Turner's and- asked Mrs. Turner who
killed her. husband, she : replied- 'You
think Mr. Turner killed himself but "he
was murdered.: -We know who"; -killed
him. I can show you: the" tracks- of the
• man- who killed him.: Nick : did -it— Nick
Gilligan;- but .for- God's sake don't say.
that he did.' The impression- made on my
mind- was that Mrs.. Turner did. not 'want
GilligariV; named mentioned." until he was
i caDtured." . ■ . : . /
•Judge: Atkinson; ruled tioth the ques
tion'and answer but. and the defence "ex
cepted the rulings :of the Court, mak
ing one \ exception to, the Courts-r uling
on the question and another to the.rul
ing- of the -answer out. - :
! The discussion between counsel is one
| of the features of" the case. - The" broad
j estlatitude is permitted;' by the court,
and the debates are "replete;, with sarcasm'
which is enjoyed . by the large crowds
present..
: Miss Ttrner has relieved herself of the
heavy veils which, she has been 'wearing '
and while she still stays closely in her
rooms at the hotel .the idle "curiosity "of
the. : crowd has been satisfied? by their be
ing able to get a good view/ of her. She is
a handsome blonde about 5 feet S inches
tall;": and iof erect carriage, has a splen
did complexion, and, a figure that would
.attract the attention; of any one. "

| Man Threatened to Shoot Her.
airs. Annie E. Rhodes, of No. a 2: north
Twenty-third street, '.'was-, visited -.at her.
home, yesterday afternoon about 1 o'clock
by two men. .who, according-to what she
says, threatened to kill her; ,
•: Mrs..: Rhodes said to a Dispatch -writer-:
last niprht that .the men came to. her
door and she was alone, but supposing
that tlysy came . on some ordinary busi
ness, -she invited them into the parlor.
Then one of the men drew a pistol, so
she relates, arid putting- it into her face,
■ told, her he had come to kill., her. She
says all the while the other man stood
with his ri^ht hand on his hip-pocket.
She judged he had a pistol. J'too, but he
did, not draw it. Mrs. .Rhodes says the
men told her they were going to kill hei
becausu she had said something disre-.
spcfrtful about their mother. ■ :
Mi\s. Rhodes declared last night, in tell
:ing.' the • story.- that .she ; Avas not a 'bit
frightened, -knowing ..that, she had done
nothing; to be shot foiv She says she
got up and smote her. breast and dared i
the man.to shoot; ; But when, she had
berated him for a little while he and
his companion turned on their heels J and
went out. Mrs. Rhodes declared' that
later in the day the. man who drew the
pistol on her .-walked' by her, door several.'
times.' but. finally wenUaway. sho thinks;
because of the number of: children around
the- door .and on the 'porch. V When the.
men came to ••.the: house she i was alone
withra" little baby— a grandchild- of-:; hers.
\Mrs. 'Rhodes related" the above story
to a Dispatch^ writer about S:-15 o'clock
lasf night. At that: time she, seeuVed to'

LONDON. June B—3 A. M.— The Execu
tive offices of the Transvaal Government
are now in a railway car, which is shunt
ed on a . switch at Machadorp sta
tion. ..■President Kruger caused- the in
terior of the ■• coach "to be reconstructed
some time ago, with a view to .-.the - con
tingencies that' have -now arrived. V
A .correspondent of the Daily Express,
who: went from Lourenzo Marques to see
President Kruger, was received yester
day. The President sat smoking a long
pipe. He looked worried,. but- his bearing
was quiet and determined. .Vile.- did /not
make, the least objection to being inter
viewed. . - :, /■ . ■/. ■ ■' • . ' . -■ ' :~ k ' '
The correspondent was equipped for
the interview by cables . from - London.
"Yes," said President Kruger, "it is
true that the British have occupied Pre
toria, This " however, does not "end the
war. The. Burghers are fully determined
to fight to the last. They 'will' never sur
render so long as 500 armed men remain
in the. country. . I feel : deeply encouraged
by.i.the fino work Steyn- and Dewet are
doing in the Free State."..-", '" \
The" -correspondent;" suggested 'Uhat.; the
war was over, .-.inasmuch as the capital
had been taken. . : . . "
AVHAT IS 'A CAPITAL?
."The'-, capital,'- exclaimed 'Kruger; with
energy. "What is a. capital? :it doesnot
consist of any, particular collection of
Dricks.and mortar. The "capital . of .'the
republic., the seat of government.' is here":
;in this car. There, is no magic about' "any
special site. ' Our country is invaded it
is true, but it ; is. not /conquered. ~ i'he
government is still ; effective." ■ "'•
-Referring, to the reasons: why 'hie: left'
Pretoria. Mr. Kruger ,' said: /VJ
."I. "I .was /not foolish: enough, to- be taken
prisoner. , .1 provided this means of loco
motion precisely for the same 'reason as
our; Burghers,, supply, .themselves - with
horses jwhen they: take ;the field.' ■' , - '.
: "It is -necessary that .I; should be able
fo,--jnoyfr : quickly^fromplace^to' .place.
That : is all. I'By and" by this ear: will take
me back "to. Pretoria;". For. the. present, it
enables me to ;keep'away . from Petoria;
where I could be of no service, and where
I should only play r into the: hands of the
enemy."/ - , .. . --
ERRONEOUS REPORTS. : - '
"They say. Mr. Kruger," remarked the
correspondent, "that . you ; have brought
with you gold" to the value of £2,000,000."
"It is not true," replied the President:
"Whatever .monetary resources I may
have with me are' simply, those which We
requii-e for State purposes. _' At the .same
time I am not going to tell you where our
treasure "is. Let Lord Roberts find it, if
he can.": : ; : : '
"They also say in England that you
contemplate taking, refuge on aY Dutch
man-of-war at Lourenzo Marques." , : ";
"That, again, is' a lie," retorted: the
President, with, vehemence, v"I,v "I, know of
no 'Dutch war vessel. I am not con
templating taking refuge anywhere. I shall
not leave my. country:; There"" will be no
need for me to do anything of the. kind;"
MRS. 'KRUGER..
The correspondent,, continuing/said:
"There is .much surprise at your having
left Mrs/ Kruger behind." ' -
"But why?" 1 , asked . Kruger. "Mrs.
| Kruger. is .quite safe., in ,: 'Pretoria. She
would only be put to personal, incoii
| venience; here. All communication be
! tween us is /stopped/ of course, -but. " she
jwill await my return with calmness -arid
courage. _. She is ; a brave -woman. • I am
.here awaiting -further information. We
are : surrounded by-faithful burghers and
are safe." : i,'- "<,-.'. _■'.
State Secretary Reitz remarked: "You
may. depend-: upon it that the war : is . not
yet over. , . Guerilla; warfare will continue
:oyer an- enormous area. We intend to
fight tc" the bitter end, and shall probably
retire upon .Lydenburg, where we, can
hold out for many months.''; •
FAULT ALL WITH BRITAINT -
"Yes,*' observed Mr. Kruger,- "it isT'only
now that the real struggle has begun. I
fear that there will still -be much blood
shed, but the; fault is that of the British
.Government.", '. , . " .._ „ J ..' >.
Then, raising his voice to an" almost
passionate height, Mr. Kruger exclaim
ed:, "The time has passed for ustotalk.
We have done plenty oE. that! but it has
done us. no r good.' :.There -is left
for us to do but to keep on' fighting, to
keep on fighting." ■ "r . f •.<.
