SENSATIONAL SHOOTING IN
TOWN OF HAMPTON.
Dr. Harvey Desperately Wounded
by Mr. Clausey.
Hampton, July IS.-On Monday af?
ternoon lass there was a most unfor?
tunate shooting affray on the street
here. The participants were Dr. J.
B. Harvey |and his brothers-in-law,
the Messrs. Causey. The latter came
up in a buggy and, alighting, ap?
proached Dr. 'Harvey. Dr. Harvey's
wife was a Miss Causey and the diffi?
culty grew out of family trouble. It
is said that Dr. Harvey shot first.
Dr. Harvey and the elder Causey fired
attach other. When it was over Dr.
Harvey walked across the street and
sat down. There were four serious
wounds in his body, and it was feared
?bat he would die at once. But he is
"being most carefully treated and is
displaying remarkable endurance.
? It is said that he m?de a statement
exonerating his brothers-in-law from
blame in the affair just after he was
shot. He is doing well today and
promises to make a statement as soon
as he is able to do so. No feeling oth
rer than of sincere regret and a desire
TO pull the wounded man through ex?
ists in the town. It is hoped now
that he will survive his severe wounds,
y lari Russell Convicted of Bigamy.
He Pleads Guilty and is Sent to
London, July IS.-Earl Russell, ar?
raigned at the bar of the house of
lords today on the charge of bigamy,
pleaded guilty after a long argument
against the jurisdiction of the court.
The trial was carried on with all the
quaint ceremony. The arguments
basted one hour. Both the Earl and
Contess Rssell (Mrs. Somerville.)
through their counsel, pleaded they did
not know they were doing wrong, but
had acted on the best legal advice ob?
tainable in Nevada.
The peers reached their decision
after consideration of the case lasting
t Earl Russell was sentenced to three
months' imprisonment as a first-class
Postal Law Modification.
Merchants who fill large mail orders
and have been sending out smples of
goods from which their out-of-town
^-customers might select and order
will be interested in a new ruling
which has just been made by the post
office department. The ruling allows
"these merchants to write upon each tag
on a sample of cloth figures denoting
the width and price on the goods.
This had been done by the
merchants before last April,
when the asssistant i attorney general
decided for the postoffice department
"that the act of June 20,
1888, relating to permissible ad?
ditions to the fourth class
matter, does not authorize these figures
to be written on each tag attached to
separate samples. On account of the
writing in the package it was held
that the samples were subject to first
v .class rates, which was double the price
the merchants had previously been
sending them for.
Now the third assistant postmaster
general, Edwin C. Madden, decides
"that it is permissible to write upon the
tags which go as fourth class matter.
The rulings will be a great relief to
?-- the merchants who fill large mail or?
ders and send out for that purpose
great quantities of samples.
The appellate division of the su~
^ preme court of New York has recently
rendered a decision on the rights oi
witnesses in which it says:
? "It cannot be that because a party
refuses to submit to a demand made
upon him, and himself goes upon the
witness stand to contradict testimony
given by his adversary, he can by rea
^ -son of that fact be compelled to
W divulge the secrets of his life, unless
r .such secrets are connected with or
have some bearing upon the matter be?
ing tried. A party, when he becomes
a witness, is entitled even in cross
examination, to be protected. Wit?
nesses have some rights which courts
a,?e bound to respect. Attacks of the
Kind set out in this record cannot be
made upon one's private life under
guise of cross-examination. Their pur?
pose is either to coerce the party into
a settlement or else to unduly and un?
justly prejudice the jury against him.
Such examinations tend to bring the
administration of the law and a trial
of actions into disrepute and to lessen
- the respect which litigants have for
SIGHTS OF WITNESSES.
RUSSIA HAS SEIZED MONGOLIA.
London, July 19.-"Mongolie is now
Russian," says a dispatch to the Daily
Express from St. Petersburg. "Urga, a
Chinese frontier station on the road to
Pekin, has been fortified and garri?
soned by Russian infantry and Cos?

troops, have penetiated as far as the

**** Anderson. S. C., July IS.-An Eng?
lish sparrow caused the four Anderson
cotton mills to shut down twenty
minutes ahead of their usual time yes?
terday afternoon. The bird alighted
on one of the heavy feed wires at tie
sub-station. These" wires bring the
electric current to the city from Port?
man Shoals. There was probably an
inesct no one of the other wires, at
any rate the bird touched the other
wire with it's bill. This established
what electricians calls a "short cir?
cuit." There was a hissing and crack?
ing sound and some part of the elec?
tric apparatus was bumed out and
,?he machinery had to be shut down.
A few charred feathers and the odor
of burned flesh ws ail that remained
of the bird.
STRIKE ST?T?S UNCHANGED.
President Shaffer Says^Workers
Have Gained Steadily.
Pittsburg, Penn., July 19.-The
strike situation tonight cannot be
termed materially changed. Many
rumors are in the air to the effect
that a settlement of the troubles is
imminent, but none of these rumors
have been verified.
At the offices of the Carnegie'."Com?
pany and at the headquarters of the
manufacturers the usual silence is
President Shaffer, of the Amalgamat?
ed Association, expresses his entire
satisfaction with the progress of the
battle and says the workers have gain?
ed steadily, "while the manufacturers
have lost continually since last Mon?
day. He says up to the present time
I the Amalgamated forces contemplate
no change in the programme, being |
perfectly satisfied with the showing
their people have made. President I
Shaffer says the advance in wages of- 1

port today, while seemingly large,
will not bring the pay up to union
Commencing in a day or two, week?
ly bulletins will be issued from Amal?
gamated quarters to give workers and
strikers official news of the exact con?
dition of strike affairs.
From the storm centre at Wells?
ville. Ohio, tonight comes word that
striking mill men in that vicinity
spent an uneasy, restless day. The
American Sheet Steel company have
many of the town's largest merchants
back of them in their fight against the
workmen : the merchants fearing that
if the present trouble goes along much
further the Wellesvilie plant will be
brought across the line into Pennsyl?
vania. Grocers, clothing men and
others are trying to show that they
are wrong and foolish in keeping up a
fight. Pressure brought to bear along
this line, the strkers say, is energy
wasted. Many of the workmen have
money invested in property here.
J. P. MORGAN'S FIAT.
*-New York. July 19.-J. P. Morgan
gave^positive denial today to rumors
that the steel strike had been settled.
He made this statement to the Asso?
ciated Press :
"There is not a word of truth in it.
There has been no .settlement and
there can be no compromise on such a
question. The position of the operat?
ing companies is perfectly simple and
well understood, and so far as I am
concerned has mv unaualified approv?
The Appalachian Reserve.
An Asheville, N. C., special to the
New York Evening Post says:
Mr. Wilson, secretary of agriculture,
after spending a week in the North
Carolina mountains, is an advorcate of
the proposed Appalachian mountain
reserve. He will recommend that con?
gress make an appropriation for the
purchase of about 2,000,000 acres of
forest land within the states of North
Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina
The secretary found that the moun?
tains are being denuded of forest
growth at an alarming rate-with far
more rapidity than he had believed
possible-and unless congress is will
lng to appropriate a sufficient sum,
perhaps S6\000,000, to buy this land
outright, it will only be a matter of a
comparatively few yeaars, he believes,
before the effects of forest destruction
will be plainly noticeable in the agri?
cultural ands and manufacturing sec?
tions fed by the Ohio, Tennessee, Yad
kin, Svaannah and Roanoke rivers,
not to mention the hundreds of smaller
streams relied upon by the agricutural
"This section is a natural water re?
serve for nearly all the rivers of the
south," the secretary says, "and the
present operations can only result in
the complete drying up of its rivers,
or shrinking them to such an extent
that their use will become wholly im?
paired, for it is a recognized scientific
fact that to preserve the streams the
forests at their headwaters must not
be destroyed. Right here let me say
that it would be well for all southern
members of congress to give more at?
tention to his forest reserve and let
rivers and harbors work drift until
the more important work is accom?
plished. If this timber is destroved
the object of rivers and harbors work
will be defeated in advance, and there
will be few streams remaining of suffi?
cient size to justify a dollar's appro?
priation for improvements."
