WHITE HOLDING HIS
OWN AT LADYSMITH
He Even Makes a New Sortie
MORE TIMID ARE UNEASY
Evacuation of Colenso and the Re
ported Withdrawal of the British
Force From Stormberg Still Unex
plained In London.
LoNDON, Nov. 6.-An immense weight
was lifted from the public mind by a
brief official dispatch publizhed this
morning by which the continental
stories of disaster at Ladysmith were
MAP SnOwINO COLENSO.
proved to be false, although the dis
patch itself did not relieve the anxiety
of the more timid in another direction,
as it indicated that General White, in
stead of sitting tight and acting wholly
on the defensive, as it is held in many
quarters he ought to do, persists in
making sorties and risking another
Nicholson's Nek disaster. Generally,
however, the cheery tone of the dis
patch, showing that there is no anxiety
at Ladysmith as regards the ability of
the beleaguered garrison to hold its
own, has had an excellent effect on the
From the fact that General White is
able to take the offensive and shell a Boer
camp it seems that Ladysmith is not so
closely besieged as was supposed. Not
much importance, however, is attached
to the shelling of the Boer laager, as
the war office has no confirmation of
the story that the Orange Free Staters'
camp at Bester's has been captured.
Were this true, it might have consider
able effect on the attitude of the Orange
Free State, which is not so directly con
cerned in the conflict as the Transvaal.
The movement of the Boers into Cape
Colony is beginning to awaken British
fear that they have greatly underesti
mated the forces they will have to meet
and that even General Buller's task
may not be so easy as anticipated. It is
becoming apparent that all the British
calculations, based on the loyalty of the
population, are hopelessly at sea or there
has been a very serious leakage of Dutch
sympathizers from Natal and Cape
Colony. Otherwise there is no account
ing for the large forces of burghers re
ported from all directions. The war
office, consequently, is being urged to
have more troops in readiness for all
The evacuation of Colenso and the re
ported withdrawal of the British force
fronm Stormberg are still unexplained.
The former may be due to either the
Ber artillery rendering the place un
tenable or to the fact that pressure else
where, possibly at Pietermaritzburg,
has necessitated the concentration at a
threatened point of all available troops.
It is said that if the objective of the
Bers traversing Zululand was Pieter
maritzburg they ought shortly to be
heard from. That the position of the
British is regarded as serious is ap
parent from the fact that British cruis
ers are hurrying to the Cape station.
With regard to Stormberg, it is claimed
that if it turns out to be true that the
place has been evacuated, it may either
be due to the impossibility at present of
providihg an adequate garrison to de
fend such important supplies against
the Beer raid or to a change in General
Buler's plans, whereby General Methu
ens' division will be landed at Durban
to relieve General White.
NEGROES ORDERED AWAY.
Governor Russe-ll WVill Be Appealed
to For P'rotection.
RALEIGH, Nov. .-For many years it
has been the boast of people living in
the Rock creek section of Mitchell
county, this state, that no negro can
live there. Once a negro band was
taken there from Asheville during a po
litical campaign, but the bandsmen had
to flee for their lives. News comes to
day of a serious state of affairs there.
Work on the Ohio river and Charles
ton railway has begun in Mitchell
county, and several gangs of negro la
borers have either been driven out or
else met at the boundary of the Rock
creek district and told not to enter it
under pain of death. A special says
this has aroused intense feeling, and
that blood will flow freely unless the
state authorities protect these laborers.
The situation is extremely perilous.
The railway authorities will appeal to
Governor Russell for protection.

FLORENCE, Ala., Nov. 6.-Hon. W. J.
Wood of this city has received a private
letter from General Joseph Wheeler,
stating that he will resume his seat in
congress when that body meets. The
letter does not state whether or not the
general will be home from the Philip
pines in time to take his seat at the
opening of congress, but it sets at rest
the speculations of the politicians.

Case of a Macon Firm Against the
MACON, Nov. 2.-The taking of testi
mony in the case of the Macon Sash,
Door and Lumber company and others

again on Nov. 26 before Judge John P.
Ross, who is the special master. The
Case has attracted considerable atten

most important suits of the kind ever
The suit was first filed in the name of
the Dunlap Hardware company, but
they withdrew last year and the suit is
now in the name of the above men

the ground that the Southern railway,
by owning a contiolling interest in the
majority of railroads coming into Ma
con, prevents competition in freight
The suit declares that it is against
the constitution of the stato for a rail
road to control a competing line.
A great deal of testimony has been
taken, and it will only take a few hours
for the complainants to complete. The
defendants will then begin, and it will
probably take a week's time to finish up.
When the testimony is all taken, Judge
Ross will submit the report to Judge
Speer, who will render a decision.
The suit has been pending for several
years and the outcome will be watched
with great interes.
A REFRIMAND FOR JURORS.
Judge *ays Their Failure to Agree
CHESTER, S. C., Nov. 2.-Judge Buch
anan created a sensation in court here
yesterday. The case on trial grew out
of the dispensary. Several months ago
Joseph H. Walker, the leading grocer
of Chester, reported the beer privilege
establishment of Henry B. Howie as a
nuisance and also bought a bottle of
beer from him in order to make a test
case, and test tho authority of the
board to open beer privilege stores.
Howie called at Walker's place of bus
iness and shot him, inflicting severe
wounds. Howie was on trial for this
assault, and the jury having remained
out all night came in and reported that
they were unable to agree. The jury
was composed of some of the best men.
in the town and was evenly divided.
The judge, in unmistakable tones of
disgust, told the jury their failure to
agree was a scandal. It was plain to
him they lacked manhood and intelli
gence enough to render the proper ver
dict. He ridiculed them severely, then
abruptly ordered them to disperse, get
something to eat and see if they could

Slav a Woman and Himself.
RALEIGH, Nov. 2.-Particulars have
been received here of a double tragedy
near Lovelace. John Coleman shot and
tilled his sister-in-law, Mrs. Dora Cham

CornuMBs, Ga., Nov. 2.-A report is
current that smallpox prevails in and
near the town of Richland, on the Geor

however, insist that there is no small
pox there of any consequence, although
Surgeon General Wortenbaker recently

NOT BLIND OR PENNILESS.
Report as to Mrs. Stonewall Juckson's
CHARLOTTE, N. C., Nov. 6.-A rumor
having gone abroad over the country
that Mrs. Stonewall Jackson, widow of
the distinguished confederate general,
is absolutely penniless, in want and
hopelessly ill and blind, Mrs. Jackson
said yesterday to a representative of the
AssoQiated Press that these statements
are very much exaggerated.
It is true that she is not in affluent
circumstances. but she has a comperency
and has always been above want. Her
health is somewhat improved and she is
not blind, though still suffering from a,
painful illness, facial neuralgia.
Appeals having been made all over
the south for her relief, Mrs. Jackson is
anxious that the true state of the case
should be known, as she is unwilling to
accept any donations except those of
fered as testimonials of love and ad
miration for her husband.
STALLINGS FAVORS BRYAN.
He Wants Richardson Nominated For
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Nov. 6. - In a
speech at Pratt City last night Hon.
Jesse Stallings, candidate for the Demo
cratic gubernatorial nomination, said
that he favored the renomination of
Bryan for the presidency with a good
southern Democrat like Congressman
Richardson of Tennessee, for vice pres
It will be recalled that Mr. Stallings
ome months ago wrote a letter to the
New York Journal, in which he pre
sented a long argument to show that
the south was entitled to the Demo
cratic presidential nomipation and that
Mr. Richardson should be the nominee.
This letter has been used by the op
ponents of Mr. Stallings in an effort to
prove that he was opposed to Bryan and
his declaration last night shows that he
now favors Bryan for first place and
Richardson or second place.

MORGAN FOR PROMPT
ACTION BY CONGRESSi
Problem of Ruling Filipinos
Must Be Solved.
SENATOR GIVES HIS VIEWS
He Favors a Congressional Commis
sion to Visit the Islands to Study
Conditions There Before Trying to
Frame a System of Government. f
WASHINGToN, Nov. 6. - "Congress
should at once take action in relation to
the Philippines," said Senator Morgan
last night. "This action should be
taken in the discharge of the duty im
posed by section 4, article 4, of the con- E
stitution, which provides that the t
United States shall guarantee to every
state in this Union a republican form of E
The senator said that this imposed a
distinct duty upon congress and the dis
charge of that duty by action looking
to the establishment of a Republican
form of government in the Philippines
would be the best answer possible to
He explained that what ho meant by
giving a republican form of government t
to the Philippines was that the best
form of a republican government known
in the world, which would b6 the best
form to be found among the ideal, and
that every step toward establishing a
government in the Philippines should
be an approach to this high ideal.
Senator Morgan favors a congres
sional commission to visit the Philip
pines to study the conditions there be
fore attempting to frame a system of
In the senator's opinion the United
States should have charge of the exter
nal relations of the islands, of collect
ing and expending the revenues, and of
all matters relating to the islands as a
group, while the local affairs should be
confided as far as possible to the people
of the different localities. In this con
nection, he spoke of the township sys
tem of the New England states as the
highest ideal of local self government.
The question of who should have the
right to vote would have to be determ
ined by congress, and in this connection 4
the senator called attention to the fact
that in the first instance the determina
tion of who shall have the suffrage in
the states and territories organized un
der the United States is an arbitrary
act, in some placs men only being al
lowed to vote, in others men and (
women, and in others various qualifica
tions being prescribed.
Existing laws should be continued in (
force as far as they were good laws,
because the people understood them.
One change that would have to be made (
would be to take away from the friars
and the religious orders their power of
levying taxes on the people.
Senator Morgan is of the opinion that,
while the United States should under
take at once the solution of the problem
of governing the Philippines, the devel
opment of that government into its ul
timate form will have to be a matter of

Hero of Santiago Given a Noisy Recep
tion In Birmingham.
BIRMINGH Am, Ala., Nov. 6.-Birming
ham is crowded today with visitors from
all over Alabama come to pay honor to
Admiral and Mrs. Winfield S. Schley.
The train bearing the party to this city
was late leaving Atlanta this morning
and did not arrive in the city on schedule (
time. A party of escort went to Atlanta
on Saturday afternoon and left that city4
with Admiral and Mrs. Schley in a pri- 4
vate car provided by Assistant General
Superintendent J. S. B. Thompson of
the Southern railway this morning.4
The party of escort was joined at An
niston by an additional escort of ladies
and gentlemen, and the whole party4
came thence to Birmingham.4
When the train bearing the party
reached the outskirts of the city every4
engine in the city blew a shrill blast
and all the bells added to the clang.
The depot was packed and jammed
with people and the streets for a block:
in each direction were a mass of crowd
ing, pushing, seething humanity.
A large cordon of military, under
command of Colonel T. 0. Smith,
former major of the First Alabama vol-(
unteers in the Spanish-American war,
formed as escort for the admiral from '
thedepot to the Morris hotel.
The streets were gay with bunting,f
and pictures of the hero of Santiago,
with those of Wheeler and Dewey, were
prominent everywhere. The reception
