In referring to the indications of dis
content with Bryan for presidentia
nominee in 1900, The Free Lanoe, in
its last issue, called attention to the
fact that Senator Morgan, of Alabama,
a pronounoed free silver advocate, and
probably the most influential Democrat
in the South, was the first to sound the
cote of dissatisfaction and to fire th?
signal gun ot danger. There has beer
some attempt by tbe friends of Bryan
to discredit the genuiness of the "in?
terview" in which Senator Morgan pro?
mulgad this view. But James L. i'ugh,
Jr., son of former Senator Pagh, ol
Alabama, and assistant attorney for the
Dittriot of Columbia, comes forward tc
affirm tbe authenticity of the Morgan
interview, and to deolare that it wat
not "the vaporings of an idle talker,"
but that Morgan "only acted as the
spokesman of the leading men of the
party in the South." Senator Pugh is
now at Saratoga, and, according to the
statement of his son, he went there at
tbe request of Senator Oorman and
other party leaders, who wish to quiet?
ly formulate a oampiign for 1900.
James L. Pugh, Jr., a day or two ago
aaid to a reporter of tbe Richmond
Timee: "My father bas just made a
oanvaas of a part of tbe South. He ad?
mita that tbe Bryan people are in con?
trol of tbe situation at present, but that
tbe awakening is coming, and he pre?
dict? a landslide in tbe near future."

if not an entire cassation, of the al in.i
over the yellow fever epidemic at
llampt >u There can be BO doobt that
the grounds for the alarm were greatly
exaggerated, Dr Hradford, u well
known Washington physiolan, m ik s
the following ?tatemen! :
"There is DO yell .\v fever ut the
Hamilton Soldiers' Home Hardly any

and this among four thousand old vet?
erans who are ?osoeptible tu maladies

have checked it. ('he- k They liad

Whether Dr. Radford does not take

may perhaps be questioned, bol there
can be no doubt that oommonitiea sr?
liable to unreasonable p?nica,
old veterans relate that ?moaniea mid
regiments, and even diviai 'iis. were
liable to be stampeded in tin oivil war
The Atlanta Oonatitotion say? that Dr.
\rn i. of Bayannah, used to d
that he treated many more i
yellow fright than yellow fever in that
city in 1864 It is of the tirst import?
ance that cities and oommooiti?
poaed to be threatened with this s-, large
should observe two precautions, namely,
to keep cool, and to keep .?eau. It is
an established fact that yellow f,-ver
cannot become epidemic in any
unless the conditions fot its spread ac?
tually exist. Filthy streets aud alleys
and backyards, and lack of thorough
drainage, an1 conditions that invite
this pestilence. Hut where there is
good ventilation, good drainage und
thorough cleanliness there need be no
fear of yellow fever. Even if cases of
the disease are brought into su? b
munities there will be no spread of the
jiest. The Norfolk Landmark recalls the
fact that daring the fearful Norf
idemic in 1855 hundreds of pe I
that city sought refuge on the Eastern
Shore of Virginia,aud that while there
were cases of yellow fever among th? aa
refugees, who carried the germs of the
fever with them, th.' disease did nut,in
a single instan..?, communicat
to any resident of the peninsula on the
other side of the bay. Just as there
?an be no combustion uuless the ni

be no epidemic of yellow fever unless
the disease is invited by a lack of sani?
tary precautions. lu this view of the
matter it would seem that Dr. I
heimer, President of the Richmond
Hoard of Health il an extreme
length, indeed, an unjustiliable length,
when he declares that ''the moment a
single case of yellow fever appears in
Norfolk up goes a quarantine against
that city." The presence of yellow
fevei in Norfolk would be 00 cau-?- for
alarm in Richmond if the people of the
latter city take the proper sanitary
step-i against the spread of the disease
The existence of one case, or a
cases, or fifty cases of clearly d<
fever brought into the city from Nor?
folk, or from any community Buffering
from the epidemic,would be no ground
for apprehension of an epidemic in
Richmond, unless by neglect of sani?
tary precaution? the conditions that
favor a spread of the disease were per?
mitted to prevail, Some diseases, such
as scarlet fever aud small-pox, are con?
tagious, that is communicable by con*
tact. Other diseases are not directly
oommunicated by proiimity or contact.

through the community, by the exist?
ence of conditions favorable to the
spread of the pestilence, of this class
is yellow fever.
The Burrows Interview.
Detroit, Mich., Aug. 8.?Senator Bur?
rows has written a letter to the Detroit
Eveuing Journal regarding his Wash?
ington Host interview, in which he
claims bis position therein set forth has
been persistently and deliberately mis?
represented. "The attempt to make it
appear from that interview," he writes,
"that I was hostile to the administra?
tion will, I am persuaded, be as futile
as it is fallacious. There is nothing in
the interview justifying such a conclu?
sion, and nothing, in fact, is farther
from the truth. "
He says there can be no question as
to the correctness of his statement that
if the war in the Philippines is not
ended before the next campaign, it will
be to the disadvantage of the Republi?
can party. "But," he says, "1 expect
to see the campaign renewed with in?
creased vigor aud pushed to a success?
ful conclusion "

When night fell, however, the crowd
grew, and by 10 o'clock a throng num?
bering several hundred people had
gathered about the jail
Demand was made for Thomas, but

In the meantime the officers had re?
moved the prisoner into the jail cellar
and with Keeper Hayes he was hidden
M lyot Bimpeon had been notified thai
the mob was after the man and he hur

and urged the crowd to disperse, prom?

rope was thrown about his neck and
several shots were fired Into him and
he was dragged to the corner of King
and Fairfax streets, in the heart of the
business section of the city, several
squares away from the jail, and strung
to a lamp-post just as the clock I D the
City Hall struck midnight.
The mob tired more shots in the

being satisfied that he was dead, dis
The body, from which all the cloth?
ing had been torn, was cut dowu by
the police after hanging about 1"' min?

The lynching is condemned by many
in the city, and it is believed that

made threats of what they proposed to
do if he was lynched, he would not
have been harmed.

"About 50 p-r cent, of the applicants
examined so far have passed. We think
that this is a very fair showing for it
is evidence that we are going to have
at least the average of intelligence as a
working force in the bureau. Special
attention is paid to handwriting, figur?

found that applicants from the New

in the examinations than those from the
west. I suppose that this shows tha*
the schools of the east are better than
those of the west, taken as a whole.
One day there were twelve applicants
recommended by one congressman for
examination and eleven of them failed,
if the congressman who recommends an
applicant wishes him or her re-examined
after ho or she fails, we generally let
them try again, but as a rule do not
encourage the system. It gives the
