jamin B. Howe, who has been danger?
ously ill in a hospital at Norfolk since
he was stabbed by BBMMtt Williams,
at Piew'g Wharf, la?t December, has
so far recovered as to be able to be
removed to his home.
A 'hrong of friends at .Severn
Wharf, la lower Gloucester, awaited
the Old Dominion steamer for the ar?
rival of Mr. Howe. With assistance he
was placed in the family carriage,
which hod been taken upon the wharf
for his convenience. The gre??t physi?
cal suffering which Mr Howe has late?
ly undergone, rendered this once able
bodied oung man almost a physical
wreck.
la the prosecution of the case against
Emmett Williams and his accomplice.
Frank Shaekelford, an early court trial
is to be arranged. Oreat interest and
sympathy is expressed for these rep?
resentative families. At one time It
was rumored that a compromise would
be effected. This is emphatically now
denied, and the law will take its usual
action. In the tracedy a pathetic in?
cident has occurred, for young Wil- !
Hams has lost by death his wife and
child, since the stabbing.
Hail was furnished for the release of '
F.mmett Williams and also for Frank
Shaekelford at the time of the tragedy.
