If anything further were needed to
att?Bt the popularity of Judge Jno. W.
Wooda the lmmenie mass meeting
hich aaaembled In the oirouit court
room last night would be sufficient.
The hall was filled to overflowing, and
every available standing space was oo
oupied by representative business men
of the city, all anxious to do all in
their power to have the general as?
sembly to ro-eleot the present corpora?
tion judge to that responsible position.
This was undoubtedly the largest body
of bualaoBB men ever assembled in the
The meeting was held pursuant to a
call published in tho dally papers by
Hon. H. 6. Trout and other prominent
citizens. When called to order Luc-ion
H. Cooke was olcctod chairman and B.
L Molr secretary.
Mr. Cooke stated the object-of tho
meeting in a few woll-chosen remarks,
tter which ex-Senator J. Al.cn Watts
poko au follows in behalf of Judge
"I came here to-night to participate
n a meeting of the citizens of Roanoke,
called to give expression to their wishes
and desires respecting the selection of a
judge for the hustings court of this olty.
The judge who shall fill this position Is
required not only to pass upon the
property rights of the citizens of Roan
oko, but also upon rights affecting their
life and liberty, being thus a matter
of grave Importance to all of us. I con?
gratulate you not only upon the large
number of oltizons here assembled, but
also upon the representative character
of this rreeting and the intelligence it
"The duties of this ofQoe are very
onerous. The judge Bits praotioally
eleven months in the year, and In the
month of August, when he is allowed a
vaoation, he is generally loaded down
with chancery causes so that ho scarcely
gets any vacation at all. Several years
ago John W. Woods, a young lawyer,
and recent graduate of the University
of Virginia, was eleottd judge of this
oourt, and whilst he has doubtless
made mistakes, and probably not
attained the high standard aomo of our
older judges have gained by longer ex?
perience, yet he has labored hard and
been faithful, honest and painataking
and haa gl?en general, if not universal,
satisfaction. He is patient and consid?
erate to the young as well as the old
praotitioner, and having proven hia
ability and fltneen for the office I cheer?
fully endorse- his petition and desire to
sea him re-elected, His decisions are
always honest, not wavering, because
of friendship or party affiliation and I
believe that a man who has faithfully
performed hia duties should have tho
endorsement of his people and hia party
and that those considerations should
have great weight with the members
of the- general assembly of Virginia."
Mr. Watts' address was frequently
interrupted by tbo applause of tho au?
dience, which evidently fully coinoided
with his vlowa.
The following committee was ap?
pointed to draft suitable resolutions
expressing tho sentiments of the people
of Roanoke, aa indicated by the mass
mooting: C D. Fox, J. A. Jamison. H
G. Davles, W. R. Coulbourn and S. Ham?
ilton Graves, the latter being made
Wuile the committee was preparing
their report Colonel H?ge, who was in
the crowd, was called on and responded
in his usual foroible style, endorsing
everything that Mr. Watts had said,
and staged that if tho citizens of Roa?
noke had to elect the corporation judge
this vast and enthusiastic gathering
would settle the matter.
All the speeohes were received with
deafening applause and the business
men who participated settled the fact
that if they had the election of the cor?
poration judge in their hands, Woods
would without doubt sucoeed himself.
The committee reported the following
resolutions, which were read before the
meeting, and adopted without a dissent?
"Whereas, We, the Democratic citi?
zens and business men of the city of
Roanoke, Vs., in mass meeting as?

THE COLT DIVORCE SUIT.
The Husband Withdraws All Ohnrges and
the Suits Are Discontinued.
Providence, R. L, Deo. 11 ?The last
act of the famous Colt case occurred
this morning when J. M. Bipley, coun?
sel for Mra. Elizabeth M. Colt, in the
divorce proceedings brought by her hus?
band, ex-Attornoy General Samuel P.
Colt, formally discontinued tho petition
brought by his client In tho aopelate
division of the supreme oourt. Follow?
ing this Samuel Colwell, attorney for
Colonel Colt, read a statement signed by
the latter stating that the reasons for
the suit brought by him against J, J.
Van Alen, of Newport, for alleged
alienations of Mrs. Colt's affections had
been misconstrued. This case was also
discontinued. In his statement Colonel
Colt denies that any charges of unbe?

statement was sitrned by tho ox-attorney

The Body Fully Identified.
Phili.ipbburq, N J., Dec. 11.?The
body of the woman found on Marble
Hill, two weeks ago, was exhumed to?
day, and was fully Identified by rela?
tives as that of Susan Boss, of Belvi
dere, a wealthy woman, who myste?
riously disappeared from her home.
Faois that have been brought to light
by the authorities show that the woman
was robbed of a large sum of money
which she always carried in the bosom
of her dress, and was then drugged to
death with arBenio to make It appear
that she had committed suicide It is
also thought that she was ravished by
her assailants. Although the author?
ities have given the case much atten?
tion there is little or no hope that the
murderers will be arrested.

HE MEETS DEATH BRAVELY
Hayward's Wonderful Firmness
on the Scaffold.
While the Faoea or the Sheriff and Depo?
tlea Were Blanched, he Smiled and
Jested to the Lagt?He Led the Cheer?
ing for the Sheriff and Told the Lat?
ter to Pull the Noose Tight.
Minnba.foi.I8, Minn., Deo. 11.?With
a gambler's phrase upon his lips and a
cold smile upon his face, Harry Hay
ward faced the eternal this morning.
"Pull her tight, I'll stand pat." These
were the last words ho uttered as the
deputy, with blanched face and tremb?
ling hands, pulled the well-soaped
noose as tightly about the murderer's
neck as be could in order that death
might come the more quickly and the j
It wsb twelve minutes past 2 o'clock
when Sheriff Holmberg pulled the lever
s>nd thus reloased the trap upon which
Harry Hayward stood. In just thirteen
minutes County Physician Frank Burton
declared that the swinging figure, in
which no. a movement or atruggle had
been obseived, was that of a dead man.
played, and the curtain had been rung
down on the career of the chief aotor.
The coolest man at his own execution
was Harry Hayward. Debonair as ever,
what had seemed mere affeatation dur?
ing his jail days, now became the cour?
age and Indlfferenoe of a man who was
at least not afraid to die. There was not
a man of the little knot of privileged
spectators who had kept a long vigil,
whose heart thumped more loudly and
importunately than the one which waB
so soon to cease its boating; not a face
turned more ghastly than hin in the
gruesome light. It was a scene never
to be forgotten when at last after what
bad seemed endless hours of waiting,
the death march appeared at the door.
The one gas jet had been turned off
and the room was illuminated only by a
locomotive headlight suspended about
four feet from the floor opposite the
scaffold. The huge cone of light threw
a horrid distorted shadow of the engine
of death on the rough whitewashed
stone wall behind. Two nooses were
ditcernable, both well tried and tested,
one being held in reserve. A deputy had
carefully chalked two circles wbere the
feet of the doomed man was to stand and
had outlined the trap that there might
be no mistake In the uncertain light.
The ohief deputy mounted the scaf?
fold where Warden Wolfe, of the State
penitentiary, ex Sheriff Wlnn Braokett
and Sheriff Ohappell, of St. Paul, were
already waiting, and directed that every
hat bo removed and that there be no
Smoking. A squad of policemen filed in
and made a passageway for the death
party. Meanwhile the prisoner had
been made ready in the oell room. His
black silk robe had been put on and the
blaok cap adjusted.
Suddenly the door was drawn open.
Then came three hoarso cheers for
Sheriff Homberg, then three for Hay?
ward, led by himself, and ending with,
"Ho'u all right." It was awful for euch
a demonstration led by a man on his
way to meet bis death. As the cheers
died away tho sheriff appeared, fol?
lowed by tho prisoner between the depu?
ties. Harry Hayward entered the. death
ohambar with the eame easy stride that
marked his promenades when ho was a
swagger youth In society.
'?Good evuning, gentleman," said he in
clear and even tones as he came into the
room, wearing his sombre garb bo jaunt?
ily that its groteequeneaB was forgotten.
Be made his way up the stairs to the
scaffold and slipped on the unaccustomed
gown. This amused him, and he laughed
at the first step. Ab bo strode upon the
trap the deputies looked more like
frightened children hanging to a parent
than officers of the law.
Carefully placing his feet on the
marked spots, he drew his splendid fig?
ure to its greatest height and glanced
about with a calm face, occasionally
brightened by a smile of recognition eb
he reoognized a friend in the crowd.
Upon being asked if he had anything
to say be made some parting remarks to
friends present in the coolest manner;
said he freely forgave his brother
for any imaginary wrong the latter
thought he had done him; asked in a
meaningless tone forgiveness of hie sins,
and, this concluded, said: "I guess
tflat's all. Now Phil. Megaardon, go
The straps wore quickly adjusted. Ab
the noose settled down over hie head,
he said: "Let's see, where doea the
knot go, under the right ear? No, it's
the left, isn't it? Please pull it tight.
That's good. Keep np your courage
The prisoner's faoe purpled slightly
as the noose tightened and the visor of
the blaok oap was turned down. It was
Harry's last glimpse of earth.
"Pull her tight; I'll stand pit," he
said. Megaarden stepped baou, raised
his hand In the fatal signal and like a
Bhot the body dropped through the
opened trap. There wasn't a tremor or
wiggle. The spectators waited broth
lessly while the doctor listened to the
fluttering heart. Thirteen long minutes
passed, Dr. Burton stepped back, and
the spectators began to file out. A
deputy loosened the strap that bound
It is supposed that the longthy auto?
biography which Hayward diotated to a
stenographer last night contains a con?
fession of murdering Catherine Qing as
well as sensations of crimes in which ho
has been involved. But the real facts
will not be known until bis statement
la printed in book form. Hayward also
made several statements to the phono?
graph and the owner of the instrument
expects to make money by permitting
the public to hoar Harry's own voice
after he has been laid away in the earth.

THE TWO NEW BATTLESHIPS.
Secretary Herbert Hear* the Argamonts of
Shipbuilders on Their Plann.
Washington, Deo. 11.?By appoint*
meat Secretary Herbert to-day heard
arguments behind olosed doors by the
persons who bid for the construction of
the two new battleships touohing the
merits of their respective propositions.
There were present Henry Scott, of the
Union Iron Works, of San Francisco;
Messrs. Charles and Henry Cramp, and
Mr. Nixon, of the Cramp's Shipbuilding
Company, of Philadelphia, and Mr. Or
outt, prosldent of the Newport News Dry
Dock and Shipbuilding Company, of
Virginia, with his constructing engi?
neer, Mr. Smith.
The Secretary had oalled together to
hear the statement of the f u.i board of
naval bureau ohtefe, Commodore Mat?
thews, of the bureau of yards and
dock?; Chief Constructor Hlohborn,
Chief Sampson, of the ordinance bureau;
Bnglneer-ln-Chlef Mellvllle and Chief
Chadwick, of the equipment bureau.
Naval constructor Taylor and Chief
Engineer Petry also were present.
All of the plans submitted by the bid?
ders were spread out In the Secretary's
office, where the hearing wan held, and
arguments were reported, although the
hearing was not public.
The problem presented to the Seore?
tary and the board of bureau chiefs was
a difficult one. The Newport News
Company was tho lowest bidder on plans
for building tho ships prepared by the
Navy Department, but the Cramps and
the Union Iron Works had submittod in*
dividual plans of more or leas merit, the
Cramps having no less than seven prop?
ositions, and tho Union Iron Works being
favored by tho expression of the desire
ot Congress to have one ship built on
the PaolQo coast.
Messrs. Scott and Oicutt, speaking for
their respective firms, bad no romarka
to make at this time unless they aro
called upon to apeak further In detail of
any features. Therefore, the entire
hearing was oonsumed by the Messrs.
Cramp, who, without In any way dis?
paraging the plans of tho ships as pre?
pared at the Navy Department, di?
rected at.entlon to what they regarded
as the strong feature ot their own de?
At the conclusion of the hearing
Secretary Herbert agreed to allow the
Cramps three or four days time in
which to bring in some further repre?
sentations In the same line. When
this Is all In his hands the Secretary
and the board will pass upon tho vari?
ous proposals and make tho awards of
