NORFObK. VA., February 24.-NO or
dlnary buslncss could bo transactod ln
tho Police Court thla mornlns. There
was tho whole hlstory o? tho ractional
eontost in tho Demoeriitlo party ot Nor
iolk county to be recountod. lt all came
out ln tho story of the Ught ln Muln
Street y.sterday afternoon between liugh
Johnson, odltor of the Norfolk County
Oeraoorat, and Senator Flnloy Cromwell.
The flght waa the result of aitlclea ln
tho paper coninientlng on Senator Crom?
well and tho tunlonlst fnetlon. In ono or
these ortlclea lliore was a statement tnat
tienator Crorhweli atood at the head of
the negro eolumn of votors at Uio laat
Stnto aenatorlnl election.
Mr. Johnson testiiled, for hlmself, that
ho had wi'ltton tho ai-ticles, and that
whilo ho could not say of his own ktiowl
edg-o thnt tho stntomonta in Uieni.wore
all true, ho could brlng proot for them.
Ho Bali? thai Senator Cromwell and his
brothar, Sherli- A. C. Cromwoll, hnd at
tnoked him on Maln Street yeslorday,
and that h. bnekcd out of the way, but
defendod hlmself. He admlUod that he
atruck tho flrat blow, but sald that Sen?
ator Cromwoll had called him a llar for
having wrltten the artlclo, whlch the
Senator took from his purso, aml whlch
Johnson acknowledged to havo wrltten.
C. W. Rockofoller was tho stnr wltness
for the Johnson slde. Ho was posltlve
and plaJn-spoken i" Ws testlmony, and
provoked laughlcr by tho deserlptlons ho
gave of the sconos at the polls, when he
pald that Senator Cromwoll. Alvah H.
Martin and somo other man ho dld not
know led a eolumn of 1.200 negroes to
tha polls. He said he went home to get
a camera to take a picture of tho scene.
but his wlfe porsuaded hlm not to take
tho picture for fear of moro trouble. Ho
was son-v now ho hnd not tho plcturp to
vorlfv his statoments. He injeoted tho
only "humor into the trlal that varled Its
intense solcmnity. __-,
Other wltnesses wero M. M. Tunls, who
testiiled as to tlie Democratlc standing
of Senator Cromwoll, nnd of having re
Jcctod his vote at tlie booth, and Norman
Allc-n who gave slniilar testlmony. Sen?
ator Cromwell testiiled ns lo having been
oftendod nt the artlcles that hnd been
