No Chango In Situation in
INSANE FROM CHAGRIN
Man Who Was Engaged as Watch?
man for Seaboard Air Lino at -
Time of Recent Fire Has
Lost His Mind.
(Special to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.)
NORFOLK, VA., July l.-Tho United
States Steamboat Inspectors Nicholson
inc Tnplcy have had two cases to rou?
nder growing out of the marine engineers'
strike. The first one was that of C. A.
Buck, whom tho steamer owners' alleged
had offered to instruct the firemen of the
ferryboat Elizabeth how to tamper with
the machinery of the boat fo that she
would not respond to the pilot's orders.
Buck was acquitted. Now the Marine
Engineers' Association brings charges
against H. 8. Townsend, alleging that he
noted as chief engineer when he had a
license as assistant engineer only.
The statement, of tho defendant was
heard by the Inspectors to-day, and the
record of their finding was mado up to
be sent to the new Department of Com?
merce to-day. It will be returned hero
?with approval or disapproval and then
Meanwhile there Is no change In the
condition of the strike of the marino en?
gineers. They ore demanding that the
non-union engineers employed In their
places be discharged, and the steamer
owners are not consenting to that de?
mand. That is the hitch to tho settlement
of the strike.
INSANE FROM CHAGRIN.
A commission of lunacy has adjudged
AVllliam Johnson Insane. Tho circum?
stances attending the case are pitiable.
Mr. Johnson was employed by the Sea?
board Air Line as a watchman at the time
of the recent disastrous fire, and ho has

rtt the'county jail, where he was car?
ried to await, transportation to tho asy?
lum, he was talking In an Incoherent
manner, and would often cry out: "Fire!
Fire! Fire!" It Is thought the result of
the Are preyed on Mr. Johnson's mind
?until It became unbalanced.
SPENCE THOUGHT TO BE INSANE.
Dan Spence, the negro who attempted
suicide Sunday on account of a love af?
fair, was arrested last night and placed
In the Portsmouth jail on a warrant
isworn out by his mother, who declared
that Dan was violent and had been break?
ing windows and destroying tho house?
hold furniture. It Is thought that his
mind ,1s affected, and when his case -was
called In the Police Court this morning
it was continued by the Mayor for ten
days, In order to examine Into his sanity.

prisoners, chiefly negroes, who prefer to
pay their fines In time while they are
