Aberdeen, Scotland, Sept. 16.- Pas?
sengers aboard the coasting steamer
Hogarts which arrived here last night
report a sfrrange occurrence aboard the
steamer which is believed in some
quarters to indicate that the Japanese

now bound for the Far fr East The
passengers report that two Japnese
officers and nine sailors were aboard
the Bogarts and when the Japanese
- landed at Aberdeen they jumped inta

diately to a mysterious, low lying craft

Conditions Upon Which the Rus?
sian Cruiser May Remain in San
Francisco Harbor Prescribed.
[ Washington, Sept. 15.-Acting Sec
! retary of State Adee today gave ont
the following statement regarding the
Russian ship Lena now at San Fran?
cisco :
"The president has today issued an
order thronst'? his" ading secretary of
state, directing that the Russian arm?
ed transport Lena now at San Fran?
cisco, be taken in custody by the
naval authorities of the United Sta?
tes and disarmed. The main features
of the conditions prescribed are that
the Lena be taken to the Mare Island
navy yard and there disarmed by re?
moval of small guns, breech blocks of
large guns, small arms, ammunition
and ordinance stores and such other
dismantlement as may be prescribed
by the commandant of the navy yard :
that the captain give a written guar?
antee that the liena shall not leave
San Francisco until peace shall have
been concluded ; that the officers and
crew shall be paroled not to leave San
Francisco until some understanding
as to their disposal may be reached be?
tween the United States government
and both the belligerents; that after
disarmament the vessel may be remov?
ed to a private dock for such reason?
able repairs as will make her sea?
worthy and preserve her in good con?
dition during her detention, or may
be so repaired at the navy yard if the
Russian commander should so elect;
that while at a private dock the com?
mandant of the navy yard at Mare
Island shall have custody of the ship
and the repairs shall be overseen by
an engineer officer to be detailed by
the commandant and that when 30 re?
paired, if peace shall not then have
been concluded, the vessel shall be
taken back, to the Mare Island navy
yard and be there held in custody un?
til the end of the war.
This action has been taken upon the
written request of the commander of
the Lena, addressed to Rear Admiral
Goodrich, setting forth that as the
vessel is incapable of putting to sea
without needful repairs she must dis?
arm, and asking that needful repairs
be permitted after disarmament.
The secretary of the navy baa tele?
graphed the president's order to San
Francisco, and given instructions to
Admiral. Goodrich and to G?pt. Mc
Calla, the commandant of the Mare
Island navy yard to carry out its pro?
visions.

REPORT OF GRAND JURY.
To His Honor C. G. Dantzler, Pre?
siding Judge September term Court
of General Sessions :
I The Grand Jury begs to make the
following presentment :
The bills of indictment given out by
the Solicitor have been acted upon and
returned to the Court.
A special committee from the grand
jury, consisting of J. E. McCnrchen,
W. M. Reid and T. E. Davis to ex?
amine the county offices reported in
writing as follows :
From the examination we have made
of the county offices we find nothing
special to report, further than the sys?
tem of working the roads as practiced
hy - allowing the work to be done in
small jobs and the class of work done,
thereby causing a useless expenditure
of the public funds, by unscrupulous
individuals.
Also the practice of allowing com?
mutation taxes to be received by vari?
ous individuals, all of which should
be paid to the county Treasurer, or
the Sheriff's deputy and the Treasur?
er's receipt issued fbr same.
We would suggest that a suitable
man be secured as read overseer for
each township and all in addition to
that work done by the chain gang, be
superintended in person by him, and
at "co time more than the income from
the commutation tax in each township
be expended upon the roads of the
same ; it being the duty of the Super?
visor to inspect the work before ap?
proving same. Also to require an
itemized statement with dates to be
submitted by said overseer.
A committee cf which L. V. Brown
was chairman inspected the new iron
bridge over Lynches River and reports
that while the bridge appears to be a
good one it is incomplete in some par?
ticulars on account of some missing
braces and the brick foundation upon
which the ends of the bridge rest has
yielded dangerously to the pressure,
being badly out of plumb and sfiouid
have alteration. This committee was
informed by a member of the county
board that the first payment on said
bridge was being withheld on account
of the missing braces. The same com
mitteee visited the house and farm for
the poor and report the farm partially
under cultivation by a tenant and thc
bouse needing underpinning and a
new cover.
Thanking your Honor and the Soli?
citor for courtesies.
Respectfully submitted,
J. A. Rh ame,
Foremai;.
Runaway on Wain Street.
There was a runaway on Main street
Saturday. Two mules that were
hitched to a light buggy suddenly be?
came frightened, and dashed down
Main street at full speed. By the time
they got in front of Beck Bros. store
they succeeded in completely turning
over the vehicle, and throwing the
occupants, two negro wemen, to the
ground. Very fortunately the women
escaped without receiving any serious
injuries. One wheel cf the buggy was
smashed to pieces, but, otherwise, it
was not badly damaged. As usual,
the auair created quite a little excite?
ment.
