TR1KKRS RESUMR WORK.
Minor Concessions Were Made, But it
Was a Victory for ivlill Owners.
Fall River, Ken. 21.?The strike at
King Phillips mill is over. Tn accord?
ance with thcii action at their.[meeting
on Sat unlay, when tiiey voted to return
to work, the spinners entered the mill
this morning, and the n;ills were cnce
more put into cDeration. The result,
shows it was a victory for the mill . men.
They consented to nDmfe? with the opera?
tives, hut at no time since the trouble
began were they willing to any conces?
sions. The gates were always open ami
Ine places of the strikers were not Idled,
hut no inducement was ofl'ertt'. to the
oplnners. The ccncessions amounted ^to
nothing. They could have been secured
before the strike was inaugurated.
Agent Chase said, when flist asked to te?
stete wages, he could not because of his
agreement with the manufacturers. La?
ter he guaranteed that the cut would not
exceed 11 1-SI per eent. Strike cost opera?
tive.5 in wages$25,000. It cost the mill
owners les-, and the loss was made up
by manufacturers. Operatives still con?
tend that the reduction is unjust and say
ibey will resist nt a mote opportunei ime.
but it is believed if improvement in the
innrset continues all men will return to
old scale before any strike is started. In
the opinion of many it will not In long
before conditions will warrant an ir.
crease in wages.

Harris H?ge Will Get the Roanoke
Col. .T. W. Hart well returned yesterday
from Washington where ho has been for
several days on business. In speaking
of ih" Hoauokc postniastersshlp the Col
one! said that the matter was already
settled beyond the possibility of a doubt,
lie saiil that the appointment had already
been made by the president and that Mr.
Harris 1 logo was the lucky man. All
that is needed to make Mr. Du pay's suc?
cessor a reality is the sending of the
name of Mr. H?ge to the Senate and Its
ratification by that body. There is no
likelihood that the Senate will fail to con?
firm the appointment. Mr. HartwelL
says that the appointment will g" to the
Senate in the regular order of biulness
which may be to day or to-morrow and
it might be a week before the oflieial an?
nouncement of the appointment is made.
It lc understood that Co'. .T. Hampton
M?ge was named bv National Comittee
man Scott for the position of district at?
torney aud upon going to the I'r?sident
with the recommendation 1'resident Mc?
Kinley Iben refused to ratify Mr. Scott's !
choice for the attornevship. When j
Comtnitteeman Scott informed Mr. H?ge |
of the Presdient's decision, he at "once,
asked the privilege of being allowed to
name his local postmaster, it being un?
derstood that he would not name himself
for tue position. The privilege Is said
to have been granted by the Pr?sident
and Mr. H?ge proceeded to name his
brother. The matter has been a great]
surprise to a majority of the Republicans
in Roanoke, but now it is ptctty well
conceded by all applicants for the posi?
tion that M r. H?ge will be the lucky
man and as a consequence i* is under?

j Norfolk, Feb. 21.?Yesterday for the
I first time in years, the force employed at

tin torpedo boats Fooie and Winslow.
Thi i:eenj hundred men are now employed
at the dock, the force having been largely
augmented within the past few days.
The orders continuing the big monitors,
Tet tor and Puritan, in commission, and
ord' ring vacancies in '.heir complement
of officers and men filled immediately,
occasioned much excitement. A draft
of t.venty-tino men arrived hero this

TNE EXCITEMENT SUBDUED
Pending the Report of the Board
Washington, Feb. 21.?Sunday's rest
has had the effect of calming tue nerves
of official Washinutou, and with every?
thing dependeut on the findings of the
hoard of inquiry there is nothing to do
except await the momentous report from
the four naval officers, whose decision
may hriug peace or war.
Outwardly there was little to day in
the big State, War and Navy Depart*
munt building to indiente unv serious
state of affairs, but behind the Otllcial
curtain things were going on known only
to a few persons whose faces wore ex?
pression a solemn enough to excite suspi?
cion. The Bitnation is admitted to be
very grave indeed Those In authority
do not tinny that fact, but they are not
letting ilie public know how critical is
the condition which confronts the coun?
try. Their official actions, how ever, show
that every orepurtion is being made.
There was nothing in the telegram? to-day
from Lee and Sigsbeo to throw any light
on the cause of the terrible disaster.
Lee telegraphed that more divers were
necessary. Slgsbeo's dispatcher relate al?
most wholly to the condition of the
wounded. The only niece of information
sent by him was that no investigation
had been made of the zene of the explo
sion. This was interpreted to mean that
none of the divers have been into that
part of the ship to which the havoc was
conlined. The investigation is now prac
tlcaliy out of Captain Sig<d>ee's hands as
the board of inquiry arrived to-day and
will begin their duties immediately.
While matters are In a state o! suspen?
sion In Havana, the Washington enu of
,t Is actively engaged in prepartlons of a
momentous character. The most sigui
llcant action has been the order telegraph?
ed to Captain Chester, of the cruiser Cin?
cinnati, fenior ollicer on the South At?
lantic Naval Station, to proceed with his
ship and eunooat Castinefioni Para Bra?
zil to Barlmdoes.
Quite as significant Is the ??rder to the
commandant of the Nortolk navy yard
to have monitor Terror read for sea with?
in two days.
As the concentration of the licet near
Havana left the northern coast entirely
I unprotected, the Terror will probably be
assigned to New York. It has been de?
termined to distribute armored ships all
along the South Atlantic coast as fast, as
they become available. The monitor
Puritnu, now at Norfolk undergoing hur
lied preparations for sea service, will an
chor in Hampton Roads to protect Nor?
folk. Fort, Monroe, and approaches to
Washington. Within the past three
weeks seven hundred additional men have?
been added,to the working force at. the
: various navy yards, the majority being
1 assigned to Mare Island New York and
! Norfolk, where all ship construction and
repairs are now generally conducted. At
present 2,(500 men are employed at New
York on various Kinds of work. At Nor

THE BILL PASSED.
The Senate Disposed of the Gen?
eral Appropriation Measure.
Richmond, Fe?). 21.? The Senate passed
the general appropriation bill as it came
from the committee after a hot fight.
~.The general app*opriatlon bill reported
by the senate committee was furthor dis?
cussed to-day and passed after a hot fight
in the senate The bill met with favor in
the senate but the "house of commons"
across tho hall say they will never pass
such a bill. As n retrenchment measure
the house considers the bill a farce and
some of tho senators were cruel enough
to refer to It as a feeble nffoFt to satisfy
the demands of tho taxpayers and at th(
same time avoid hurting the feelings or
pockets of the tender-hearted office-hold?
ers and donation-recipients.
The house is not in a very pleasant
mood and many cf its members who are
for retrenchment without stooping to
consider individual ?conveniences openly
express surprise and displeasure at tho
shifting, halting action of tho senate
The effort to make the bill appear its a
retrenchment measure to the atnonnt of
$70,000 is farcial when it is seen that
more than a third 01 this amount shows
in the reduction for criminal expenses.
Cutting down the appropriations for the
conviction of ciimlnals never yet stopped
crime, and the bill for criminal expenses
will have to be paid whether it be $25,
000 less or $50,000 more than iu past
The house seems disposed to entirely
ignore the woir of the senate committee
and has its own committee now engaged
in the work of framing au appropriation
bill of its own on lines far different from
those of the senate bill and one that will
mean a saving to the State of at least

DIES WHILE QUARRELING.
Tragic ..End of a Philadelphia Factory
Philadelphia, Feb. 21.?The big looms
in Gordon Brother's mill, Pierce and Or?
thodox streets, Frankford, were not set
in met ion at the usual hour, 7 o'clock,
yesterday morning, not because there
was anything the matter with the ma?
chinery, but for the reason that the main
building of the plant was the scone of a
tragedy. Oliver H. Harrison, 23 years
of age, ncd Paul s. Bryant, both spin?
ners, quarreled over a matter Involv'ng
less than 5 cents, and In the fight which
was brought abont by tho angry words
! the forme'- fell to the ground dead.
Bryant, who will bo 23 yeaps old on
Tuesday, was arrested and afterward
committed to prison to aw?it the action
of; the coroner. It is not known exactly
whether Harrison died as the result of
the blows inflicted on him by Bryant,
but it is the general impression among
those who witnessed the light that the
