Vrofc*Hlon— Many Oflicr Deaths.*
Jdf. Henry. Gibbon Cannon, ono of the
eldest and most prominent members of
''- the Richmond Bar,. died at his residence
■': : !No. 1003 Grove avenue, yesterday,,morn
ing at 4:45 O'clock.
His death, though following a long ill
ness, was rather sudden:. He had been
in failing health for n.ycar or -two,. and
-had been confined to his home for some
•weeks. He was as bright as usual on
%Vcdnesday, and was well enough to be
rolled out in his back porch for some
time. That night about 10 o'clock he had
«, sinking spell, from which he never
rallied. Death was due to a complication
of troubles, which finally affected- the
icart-' • . ■: ;
The funeral Trill take place from tho
residence Saturday afternoon at 4:30
o'clock. Rev. Dr. Robert V. ■ Kcrr, pastor
of tho First Presbyterian church, which
21r. Cannon and his family had attended
for many years, will conduct the ser-'
vice, and the interment will be made in
"Hollywood. By request of the family
there will be no flowers.,
SKETCH OF HIS LIFE,
Cannon was distinctly .a Richmond
man. He was born, reared, and had spent
his entire life here, and was devoted to
the" city and her interests. He was in
his 70th year, having been born Kovcm
■ber 15, 1830. His father. Mr. Henry Can
non, was a prominent merchant here in
the earlier part of this century. There
•were* several children, but"" only three
lived to maturity. These were the laic
Edward Y. Cannon, of this city; Mr. ;F.,
lliddleton Cannon, who died in Balti
more about a year ago. and the deceased.
Mr. Cannon was educated in the best
schools of Richmond and at the Univer
sity of Virginia, where he graduated in
lav.'. Before taking up the profession
to which he" devoted his life and in which
he achieved great success, he lllled for
\two or three years the position of assist
ant book-keeper for the hardware linn
of "ft". S. and George Dounan. Mr. George
Bonnan was regarded as'an exceptionally
fine book-keeper, and the experience that
Jlr. Cannon sained under him proved; of
inestimable advantage to him .: in later
years in the. practice of law.
LIFE AS A LAWYER.
Mr. Cannon practiced law for nearly
a half century. He came to the bar in
liiSX and practiced regularly and success
fully, except during the war. until a little
more than a year ago. when his failing
health compelled him to retire. Since then
he had been confined' io his home quite
closely.
In January,, ISG7, Mr- Cannon formed a
ropartnership with Major A. R. Court
ney, and the well known firm of Can
non & Courtney continued until Janu
ary. ISS3. They enjoyed a large and lu
crative practice. When" the firm was dis
solved Mr. Cannon took into partnership
■Mr. Allen G. Collins, who had as a
student been associated with him and
Major Courtney, ■•• and more recently
.when his son, Mr. Jomcs Edwardson
Cannon, came, to the bar, he formed a
copartnership with him, which continu
ed until his retirement from active prr/c
ticc .
Mr. Cannon was recognized by the bar
. and; bench as one of the most accurate
.arid, well read lawyers in the State. In
his early professional life he was par
ticularly fond of common law pleading
and no one excelled him. Later In life
; he' contracted a fondness for chancery
practice, and for many years before: his
retirement he had been recognized as
excelling in' that branch. He had no
taste "for criminal practice and seldom
' appeared in cases of that character. Mr.
Cannon was like the late- Isaac Carring
•■■, ton, recognized as an especially line law
' yer in cases involving books and ac
counts.
WAS A GALLANT SOLDIER.
Mr. Cannon was a gallant, soldier. He
■enlisted at the beginning of the war in
„ the Wise Legion, an3-> went with that
command to South Carolina, sharing all
its; hardships. About ISG3 he returned to
"Virginia and became a member of the
stafE of General McCausland, and took an
active part in Early* s Valley campaign.
; He- had his horse shot and killed under
him in an engagement, in which he show
ed; great coolness and courage/ He saw
. service also in West Virginia, and was
afterwards detailed as Judge Advocate
.'. of the court-mariial which sat at the
Yellow Sulphur and Montgomery White
/Sulphur Springs. He continued in this
/"Tx>sition to the end of the war. His rank
: was that of lieutenant! •
;*;;• , his family. ■
It was while discharging his duties as
-Judge Advocate in " Southwest Virginia
..; that. Mr. Caiinon;. met Miss Margaret
: Edmpndson Blai:-, a daughter of^ Tho
in'as Rutherford Blair, of this city, who
has been adopted -by her uncle... Colonel
\ James E. Edmondson, who in. 1859 became
.; his; wife. Sirs. Cannon, who survives her
■.- : jmsband; is a sister of^Miss Maria. Blair
: : and. grandaaughter of the distinguished
"Parson" Blair of blessed memory.
::Jln Canno-n is survived by five child
ren. These are Mrs: S. Milnc-r Price, Mr.
| Thomas B. Cannon. Mr. James E. Can
. non. Mr. Arthur. M... Cannon, and Miss
Margaret A. Cannon. x.
'".Mr. Cannon was a. modest man and of
": retiring disposition.. H«^ did not mingle.
'■;^with the people" generally. To those who
icnew him well ht was a genial and warm
■".'hearted friend, ever ready io meet all the
.'. Oeraands of the highest friendship. He
•Avas over ready to help the worthy in
*„3iecd. and was quite charitable. Though
r-ftaverse : to public lift', he was many years

': Johni Dabney.. the? caterer,; died at his
home. iv : this; city, last night at an ad
vanced - oro. ■'-:': He" had been ill two .weeks.
Not only was he one of "the * best-known

most .respected.- and for nearly two gene
rations had -.numbered some -of .the. '• most'
prominent white people of the community
among-rhis friends. . '.•' . :"\. ■ ••_.

as S.t«phon. .',-■. Drown. Reuben .-*'■-;. AVest.
Lomas Smith; Tom •' Griffin, -another cele
brated caterer: Hobsou. the barber; Ben.;
Judah,, and , others of their-. day, were the
best types. He was universally polite
and -courteous, and, though entirely «n-:
obtrusive, had, in his sphere in times"
agone been a ; prominent figure in many:
•of the 'finest entertainments ever given in
the city."
• He was -also well known to the habitues
of several of the summer resorts of
the State, where- he had served .in
the saloons. Prior to and during the
war Dabney kept a restaurant here, and
for ;'.i; short time" after the war-he; was'
located;on Main street "opposite the Spots-"

had been only a- caterer. " For' many
years he had /charge of nearly all the
bip. barbecues given in this section of the
State. He had . the reputation of being
the best man living to mix mint juleps.
Dabney., is survived by his wife and five
children. His funeral will take place
from the First African Baptist church-

A. I'VTIIIAX CASTLE
Pljiiis for Its Erection Are Ueiiif?
Formulated.
The project to build a Pythian castle
in this city, in which. all the Knights of
Pythias will have lodge rooms, seems in
fair way of successful realization. .
The committee of members of the dif
ferent lodges,, appointed to .report a plan
of procedure to accomplish the desired
end, met with Myrtle Lodge at Smith
deal Hall last night, and the project was
discussed at length. The, committee will
be ready to report in a week or two. A
plan will be submitted. It isjjelieved that
it, or some pla.-i with' the same object in
view,, will be ad'>::tPd. All the Pythian
lodges of the city are deeply interested
in the project, and will go to work in
earnest. Pythianism in Richmond is oii
a boom, all the lodges in the city add
ing constantly to its membership.

THE RICHMOND DISPATCB--FRIDAY; JUNE 8 1900.
EDLL OF DANGER
CHINESE SITUATION; HOWEVER,
HAS NOT GROWN WORSE.
WE ARE: URGED TO: INTERVENE;
London: Mail Refers <o Crisis/as
"MeKlnley** Oiiporinnity" — Palpa
bly-Guilty Clilnemi Sni»inencws in
Dcnliiif? AVitH Boxers.
LONDON, June B.— The situation in
Ohina. as measured by abundant unoffi
cial telegrams, continues 1 full of interest
ing, possibilities, but apparently it has
not grown worse during the last twenty
four hours, although the favorite adjec
tives of London and Continental com
mentors are "perilous," "srave," and
"dangerous."
The naval commanders in Chinese
waters have received identical instruc
tions as to procedure, the question of
emergency being left, to their discretion.;,
No fear is entertained for the safety
of the legations at Pekin. European resi
dents, however, are escaping from the
capital to the coast. Pekin 'is- still under
control.; according to a dispatch to the
Morning Post; dated yesterday, but in
a very excited state. A thousand foreign
guards were garrisoning the legation
houses.
Six hundred international troops, are
at Tien Tsin, with six guns.
/;. ' A GLOOMY VIEW.
A dispatch .to the Daily Mail from
Shanghai, dated June 7th, takes a gloomy
view of things, which are pictured as
going, from bad to' worse. ' The corres
pondent says:
"The authorities are displaying palpably
guilty supineness in. dealing with the
Boxers, and the Powers are more and
more taking matters into their, own hands.
The Boxer revolt is spreading, ; and
is rapidly changing its character. The
Boxers are getting arms, preparing to
meet force with force.
"There has been no communication be
tween Pekin and Tien Tsin since Tuesday,
although one miserable, half-hearted at
tempt has been made by Chinese soldiery
to reach the capital. The troops were
lired upon and the train had, to come
back. Another station has been burned on
the line.".
: BOXERS STILL MURDERING.
A news agency dispatch from Tien Tsin,
dated. yesterday, says:
"The Boxers are still raiding and pil
laging over a wide area. They have
wrecked and" burned stations at Tong
Fong and Tangoo. It has been definitely
ascertained that Mme. Aslier and Messrs.
Ossent and . Cades have .been murdered.
General Nieh claims to have defeated the
Boxers, killing 500." •
APPEAL TO THIS COUNTRY. "
LONDON. June S. — The morning papers, x
dealing with the Chinese question, discuss
the possible course of the United States.
The Daily Mail goes beyond any other in
urging the. United States to take the lead
in intervention, under the caption "Me-
Kinley/s Opportunity."
'BATTLE. WITH BOXERS. -'-.'..
LONDON, June 7.— A special dispatch
from Shanghai, dated 7:30 P. M. to-day,
says the Dowager Empress has ordered
General Neih Si Chong, with 3,000 men, to
protect the railroad at Pekin.
A severe fight, it is added, has oc
cured with the Boxers, whose ranks in
clude many soldiers from other- generals'
commands. When the battle ended . 200
dead were left on the field.
STRONG BRITISH FORCE.
The dispatch goes on to say:
"One hundred and eighty British ma
rines, with a machine gun, are about to
force a passage from Tien Tsin to Pekin.
Altogether, about 900 British have land
ed from the fleet, a greater number than
have landed from the combined vessels
of the other Powers. This evidence of
Great Britain's intention to assert her
position strongly, gives great satisfaction
here." . \.
GERMANY'S ATTITUDE.
BERLIN, June 7.— The officer command
ing the German squadron at Chee Foo has
been directed by cable to send "a detach
ment of sailors and marines to Tien Tsin,
and after conferring with the German
Minister at Pekin, to arrange with the
commanders of other squadrons regard
ing further measures to be taken for the
protection of Europeans. ■
It is understood that Germany has offi
cially declared her readiness to act in
concert with the other Powers, but hav
ing no interests outside of Chang Tung
province, she is not disposed to take a"
leading part in intervention in China.
The German newspapers claim to have
discovered that the alleged secret agree
ment arrived at- between Russia and
Japan, to act together .against Great
Britain in the far East, is purely ficti
tious. The National. Zeitung avers 'that
Great Britain stands hand-in-glove with'
Japan.
WE ARE KEEPING OUT OF TROUBLE
WASHINGTON, June 7.-Perhaps a
published rumor to the effect that the
United States might join , with other
Powers in prohibiting Russia from land
ing more troops than these other Powers
m China led to the early.appearance at
the State Department to-day: of Mr De
Volant, the first secretary* and charge
of the Russian embassy. If->.hat was the
subject -of his iriqt^-y,: liowevttr, the
charge was speedily reassured.-for the
Department has made ho' conceal
ment of its policy respecting the- Chinese
situation, and has repeatedly, intimated
thr, it is concerned only, for the safety
of the American. legation and consulates
m China, and for the direct fnterer.ts of
American citizens there. *-
.. An . inclicati on of the care exercised by
the department in strictly confining its
oflices to these, lines is afforded by the
instructions. to Minister Conger, sent yes
terday, to draw upon Admiral Kempff '
for any force needed to; protect his lega
tion, and such refugees as might properly
claim the right of asylum there, or n
the consulates... The Minister was not
even charged to send out the. UnrV.ed,
States naval force and marines to points
where American missionaries are report
ed to be beset and in jeopardy, although

After a continuous session of six and a^
half hours : to-day the Democratic State :
Convention this evening concluded its;
work. It was- a largely-attended conven
tion, and enthusiastic -throughout. In ad
flition to the. platform- adoPted^lastnight
and - the ticket nominated : to-day, the \ oct
casion also had a bearing oil' national
politics. West Virginia next November
elects: members of the Legislature, as
well as State officers, and the new Legt.s- ■
lature elects the' ; successor of United
States Senator Stephen 8.-Elkins.v .
: M'GRAW FOR THE SENATE.
The consensus of opinion is that the
work, of the State convention has been
favorable to the candidacy of John B.
McGraw, o? Graf ton, for the Democratic
nomination for senator. He was the
champion of Holt for Governor and or
other winners of State nominations.
Former;; Senators Henry G., Davis and
J. N. Camden took, an active part in the
early, part of the convention, but- neither
of -them took anj' part after the perma
nent organization. . .: - .
Davis. Camden, and; others'."had -.been
urging t a more conservative .. ' platform
than the one that was. adopted,; reaffirm
ing the Chicago platform. Senator Davis
wanted .to have in the plat
form the language of the Constitution re
ffardlns- the use.oMioth metals, and Sena
tor Csini'len : also expressed himself in
favor of a conservative platform.
There are some who -say, that McGraw's
friends controlled the- Committee on
Rules.

night charged the conferrees with be- .
-trayirig their- trust, apologized for his
words, amid applause. J j
CUMMINGS SHOWS UP. CANNON. j
"Mr. Cummings, of New York, one of',
the \ conf errees", said the apology ..''was';,
justly due tind handsomely done." He con- •
trasted the result of -the old conferrees' .
work with that of the new . conferrees, :
who, he said, had offered a new. proposi- i
turn, which practically. violated the
House's •- instructions, while technically.
Observing them. He somewhat startled ■
the House by referring to a "junketing"
trip T-bich Mr. Cannon Imu 'taken. as tfic: S
guest of the "Coast 'Survey,'^ and then j
proceed to- pay his respects >to ;
the chairman of the Appropriations Com- }
mittee. '
Mr. Cummings wields-.a keen blade, and
the House .enjoyed his dextrous thrusts.
He pictured Mr. Cannon, the chairman
of the': great Appropriations Committee,
as a lion lashing his sides and roaring,
while the crowd of ■ jackals followed as
they smelt fresh meat. . Then he de
scribed how the House, following blind
ly the lion's leadership, had done every
thing it could to degrade its conferrees,
despite their appeals that they were
uowerless.
"I told' you," said he. with great vehe
mence, "that we were up against a stone
wall, but you turned us down, and turned
the controversy over to the Appropriat
ions Committee to settle, and they /went
up against the same stone wall with the
result that they, are back here, crawling
before this House with another proposi
tion."
"CANNON A TOY MUSKET.
With sarcasm and vigor Mr. Cummings
said: "You have been misnamed... You
are no Cannon; you are a toy musket."
This shot convulsed the House, and it
was several minutes before order. was re
stored.
Mr. Foss also spoke.
Mr. Shafroth, also one of the conferrees,;
said that if the Cannon amendment were
adopted the. surveys of the navy -would be
confined to; the ocean. No surveys of our
coasts or harbors could be made under its
direction.
Mr.. Dayton's motion to recede and con
cur in the Senate amendment was carried,
on a rising vote— 77 to 71.
CANNON DOWN AND 'OUT.
Mr. Cannon demanded the yeas .and
nays, which were ordered. The motion
prevailed— llß to %. Great demonstrations
ensued.
After this defeat Mr. Cannon turned the
management of the other item still in dis
pute between the 'two houses over- to Mr.
Dayton. This related to the course of the
naval cadets at Annapolis. .
Mr.. Dayton moved that the House re
cede, and concur in the Senate amend
ment continuing the six-year course for
cadets, but providing that a cadet at An
napolis from each congressional district,
should be appointed every four years.
This motion was agreed to;
CONFUSION DIRE.
This concurrence in the two Senate
amendments" to the naval bill closefVihe
controversy over this bill. Then follow
ed a. scene of indescribable, confusion. "A
number of conference"" reports on private
pension bills were put through with great
rapidity, while the engrossing clerks rush
ed back and forth in their efforts to get
belated bills to the President before the
final' adjournment. Members clamored
for recognition. \ .
At 3:30 the Secretary of trie's Senate
arrived, and announced the action of the
Senate in favor of adjournment at .5
o'clock/There was a war-whoop from,
the floor, and Mr. Payne moved to. concur j
in: the Senate's action) -, ■.".•;■■ ■ J
"This House ought not to adjourn until
the Senate -has acted on the anti-trust
bill," said Mr. Sulzer.of New York. The.
Republicans attempted to howl him down,
but the. Democrats rose en masse in nup
port of his demand for a roll-call upon
Mr. Payne's motion. --
The yeas and- nays were ordered, and
the motion was adopted — 115 to .73. ;
-. Messrs.:. Payne, of New York; Birigham,
of Pennsylvania, and Richardson, of Ten :
nessee. were appointed a. committee to
inform the President that the House was
ready to adjourn. ''--.'.-■"' .

recognition, and attempted to move" the
passage, under suspension of. the rules,

The Chair 'declined to recognize him to

PRESIDENT AT THE CAPITOL.
WASHINGTON, June 7-— The President
was at the Capitol for about an hour and
a half to-day, taking his departure after
final adjournment at 5. o'clock. r He was.
again accompanied by his Cabinet, but
there were comparatively few bills re
quiring attention, and neither the Presi
dent nor his advisors, found their time
wholly, occupied: The naval appropriation
bill was the only measure of general
character signed during the" day.
CONGRESSMEN OFF FOR HOME.
WASHINGTON/ June 7.— The "exodus
from Washington began soon. after the
session of Congress closed. Many sena
tors, members, and congressional officials

in Philadelphia. Speaker Henderson will
remain in. town some: days. He has not
yet positively determined" as to going to
the convention. .
The House Military Committee will 'soon
start for Yorktown, Va., where the people
desire the government to buy the old
Temple farm, on which Lord Cornwallis
surrendered to Washington.
