EXCITEMENT IN" ISLE OF WIGHT.
There was much feeling in Isle of
Wight during the progress of to-day's
primary. The Shands-Bradshaw folks
had urged their followers not to vote.
Tho Boykin-Jones men were trying to
bring out the electors.
Colonel C. F. Day told me over the

the precincts and could not estimate the
county's vote accurately. He said there
were perhaps SoO to ti"0 ballots east.

PARTED FROM GIRD WIFE.
It appears that the reunion of Mr.
Victor H. Page and his lfi-year-old wife
ie no nearer accomplishment now than
it was when he came to Suffolk some

A DASH FOR FREEDOM.
Made sure that his "flock was saved,
but dreading his eighteen yeans' work
in State'? prison, Will Scott, murderer,
last night made a desperate dash fo?
freedom. He had nearly dug his way
to starlight when Deputy Norflcet's
blood hounds barred the way, and
stood like determined sentinels before
their prisoner till daylight brought
Enclosed in a steel-encased cell, it
seemed like a forlorn hope on Scott's
part to even attempt egress. But Scott
was desperate. He began work on the
cement .floor, and dug down beneath
the ?steol lining till the outer hriek wall
was reached. Then it was easier trav?
eling. He had removed enough bricks
to look into the night, but the aperture
wasn't big enough for his body. At
that stake the blond hounds gathered
before the hole, ready to pounce upon
their victim if hin head came through.
Deputy Norfleet had heard a noise
early in the night, but could not locate
it. Scott's Inside work was so well
concealed that it took some poarch to
learn just where he had broken through
Scott was hurried away to the pen?
itentiary this afternoon. Since the
commutation of first degree murder to
Imprisonment sentiment against him
had grown stronger, and there wan talk
of violence. The feeling was accentu?
ated by possibility of escape.

THE PYTHIANS EXPLAIN YEL?
LOW FEVER SITUATION.
Hampton. Va., Aug. 19.?The Pythian
Lodge has sent out the following truth?
ful explanation of the yellow lVv? r sit?
To Our Pythian Brothers:
Whereas, daring misrepresentations,
gross exaggerations and incorrect
statements have been made thr >u?ii the
columns of many papers throughout the
country as to the yellow fever situation
In this town, which have done, are still
doing, and will continue to tlo, great
injury to our home unless some effort
la put forth to cheek them, and lo get
the true facts before tho people, wo
send out this statement to our Brothei
Knights, giving the facts In the case,
with the earnest request thai it may
bo read In open lodge and It possible
published In a local paper to give it au
much publicity as possible.
Hampton. Va.. Is situated almost at
1 the foot, of the Peninsula formed by
the York and James rivers and Chesa?
peake Hay. it is distant from Fortress
Monroe about three miles, from the
Soldiers' Home one mile, and from the
village of Phoebus one and one-half
miles; it has been noted as a summer
resort, and considered a healthy p'ace.
The National soldiers' Home, where
the fever originated, Is one inlle from
Hamilton, from which town it. is si pa?
rate?! by a river, a creek, the Normal
and Agricultural Institute, and a small
collection nf houses known ns "Hob
Phoebus, where there was one eise of
fever and possibly two. immediately
adjoins the Soldiers' Home on the ensi
and is one and a half miles ftoni Hamil?
In the year is.".", when the yellow
fever w.as raging in Norfolk nnd Ports?
mouth, about fifteen miles from hen ?
Hampton threw , pen its do ns to re?
fugees from those stricken cities, and
while a large number came over?some
of whom had the fever here and died?
r.rtt a single person living here con?
tracted I he disease.
There Is not now, nor has there been,
a case of yellow fever in Hampton, or
even a suspicious case. The town has
been protected by two cordons of
guards, one immediately around the
Soldiers' Home, and the other around
Phoebus. The tow n has had a l borough
Inspection by the physicians of the
Board of Health, and it Is said to be
In n pood sanitary condition. There
has been no panic on tho part of our
citizens anil no suffering, except from
the fact thai a number of our men
were unable to get work owing to the
quarantine about us.
This statement can bo substaltlatcd
by writing to any man in town.
