KEW STEAMER OF NORFOLK AND
Daylight Trip From Newport News?
Complimentary Run to Be Made
The t.pw steamer Jamestown, the latest
addition to the fleet of the Norfolk and
Washington Steamboat Company, arrived
lu this city last evening shortly after 6
o'clock and tied up at her pier adjoining
the ferry wharf. There she will remain
until next Saturday, when she will take a
largr" number of lnvittd guests for a sail
of about forty miles down the river.
The Jamestown departed from Old Point
yesterday morning at 7:i."> o'clock, and the
lartj from tins city and Newport News,
guests of the Norfolk and Washington
Steamboat Company and of the Newport
News Shipbuilding Company, had a pleas
ant run up the hay and river. The party
from this city, which made the down trip
? n the steamer Norfolk Tuesday night,
went aboard the Jamestown at Oid Point.
On the steamer the guests were entertained
by the shipbuilders and the Norfolk and
Washington Steamboat Company.
The run from Old Point to Washington
was made in ten and a quarter hours, an
average speed of more than eighteen miles
an hour As the steamer moved away from
Old Point wharf she was given a salute by
the whistles of all the steamers in the vi
cinity. and coming "up the bay and river
?he was saluted by every craft she met?
tjgbc-ats, schooners, steam pile drivers,
dredging machines?all Joined In the greet
ing. As she passed Alexandria the wharves
tnere were lined with people looking for
the steamer, and the whistles of all the
factories along the river front were sound
ed in salute.
Welcomed by Whistles.
Bnte-ing Washington harbor the James
town was welcomed by the whistles of all
the steam craft, and crowds lined the
wharves and along the street in front of
her pier to get a glimpse of the new boat.
Aboard the steamer making the trip were
Mr. C. F. Norment and wife. Miss Judith
Norment. Master Norment, Mr. John Cal
lahan and wife. Mr. William H. Callahan
and wife. Miss Oorothy Callahan,
George Pierson and wife, D. J. Callahan.

The steamer Is beautifully decorated
throughout, each of the ten state rooms or
parlors being finished In a different tint.
The hurricane deck, like the two lower
decks, runs to the forward flagstaff, giving
her the largest hurricane deck of any
steamer on the river. On the three will be
dancing. The steamer is electric lighted
and is equipped with steam steering gear,
and Is modern In all her equipment. She
is absolutely fireproof, for except for doors
to the rooms no wood Is used in her con
struction, and there Is nothing to burn
aboard her. She 1b the first passenger
steamer ever built in which nothing but
Iron was used In construction.

steamer also has four large water-tight
compartments, so that it is said it will be
Absolutely impossible to sink her unless

vibration, and on her trial trip when she
was taken out of the capes Into the At

a heavy northeast wind blowing she did
not careen more than one decree when put
broadsides to the sea.
On her trip up the new steamer made an
average s;<eed of 19 14-10 mils an hour
INQUIRY NOT CLOSED
OF ALLEGED ICE COMBINE.
Conditions in the City Unchanged?
No Advance in Price Since
Early in June.
The Investigation which the government
recently commenced Into the status of the
ice trade In this city Is still being con
ducted. but as yet without definite result.
At the office of the United States attorney
It was stated this morning that the matter
had not taken form sufficiently to determine
what action would follow. When the ex
amination of dealers and others summoned
Is concluded the result will l>e communi
cated. It Is stated, to the Attorney General,
who will pass upon the question of making
any presentation to the grand Jury on the
developments of the Inquiry.
Since the Investlgatkm was started a
large number of retail dealers and r. few
person* representing wholesale firms have
been examined by Assistant United States
Attorney Jesse Adklns, who is In charge of
the matter. The witnesses were summoned
Regarding Alleged Ice Trust.
The questions they were asked were di
rected toward bringing out information as
to whether or not an ice trust exists In this
city The Increase in prices as shown by
the examination. Is understood to be one of
the main facts established. Whether this
rosults from a scarcity of ice. or whether It
Is the outgrowth of a combination among
wholesale dealers. It is understood >3 still
to be determined.
No Change in Situation.
There has been no change In the Ice sltr
uatlon In the city during the past four or
five days, and the officials of the local ice
companies are still hopeful for the future.
There has I>een no advanye since the raise
in price early In the moAth, though there
Is a strong opinion among the dealers about
the city that another advance will be made
within the next few weeks, possibly about
July 1. At the office of the American Ice
Company it was stated that the company
is yet able to meet all demands for ice and
all orders are being filled as fast as re
ceived. At the Home Ice Company's head
quarters a Star reporter was told that the
company is able to fill all orders from the
output of Its factory und that it Is not now
drawing on Its reserve supply. When asked
If It is proposed to bring any more vessels
here with Ice cargoes, the official said he
thought not. as $6 per ton was being asked
for Ice a month ago In Maine, when he re
ceived the last advices. The price last sea
son was less than II per ton. The com
paratively cool weather of the past day or
two is keeping the demand down and doing
much toward preventing the exhaustion of
the ice supply in the city.
Funeral of Col. Lester.
The funeral of Rufus El Lester, late
representative In Congress, took place yes
terday afternoon at Savannah, Oa., from
St. John's Episcopal Church, ltev. Charles

WAS DDE TO ACCIDENT
CORONER'S CERTIFICATE IN CASE
OF CLARENCE YORK.
Mrs. York, wife of Clarence M. York the
man who wai found dead In the grounds
at Garfield Hospital at an early hour yes
terday raornlr.f, as stated In yesterday's
Star, reached here front Atlantic City yes
terday afternoon In response to a tele
phone message. She was completely pros
[ trated. and was taken to her apartment
| at the l?gan. Acting Coroaer Glasebrook
made an Investigation of the circumstances
attending the affair, and gave a certificate
showing that death was due to an accident
Dr. Frank Leech, who had attended Mr. j
York was consulted, and the acting coroner
also questioned others In order to ascer
tain as much as he could about the cir
cumstances which led up to the'Ume when
the sick man left the hospital window.
He was told that Mr- York had suffered !
several attacks of Brlght's disease, and
that he had been delirious each time. The
conclusion was reached that while In the
hospital the patient suffered an attack of
the disease, became unconscious and was
not aware what he was doing when he
went out the window.
It was because of the Information re
ceived by Dr. Ciiaxubrook that he reached
the conclusion stated. None of the friends
of the private secretary to Chief Justice
Fuller had entertained the theory that
the secretary had committed suicide. Most
of them knew of his ailment and they
were of the opinion that he was suffering
from an attack and was rendered irrespon
sible before he was killed-.
A brother of the deceased reached here
last night from New Tork to take charge
of the remains and make the necessary
It was decided that the remains should
be kept In this city until Saturday morn
ing. when they will be taken to Vineland,
N. J., the former home of the deceased,
for Interment. Members of Lafayette
Lodge, F. A. A. M.. of which the deceased I
was a member, will probably have charge J
of th? funeral ceremonies hen.
