Commonwealth's Attorney Tllton se cured a postponement until .May "jr.. He said alienists are now examining Peebles and that the state will be able to show beyond doubt that Peebles, while perfectly sane, with malice and premeditation, killed his wife as the re sult of unjustified jealousy.

The rings, Mrs. Barkalow thinks, were put in her trunk with a quantity of valuable jewelry and shipped to this city. When the trunk was opened they were missing.

FEAR FULOF^H ADDWS Certain Folks Avoid Three Notch Road at Night. RECALL FORREST MURDERS Many Reports Regarding Where abouts of Missing Son. OPINION HELD BY THE SHERIFF Searching Party Learns That Joe's Good Clothes Are Gone?Views of Neighbors. Spprinl Pispat'b to Tho Stnr. OAKVII'LtE. Md.. May 22. Fearing they might meet a shadowy object on the road, certain superstitious persons living on the Three Notch road do not care to pass that way after sundown. It is not exactly that they ' are afraid to go home in the dark." but the murder of William Plowden Forrest and Lillian M. Forrest, his wife, is still fresh In their minds. Some fear they might meet Joe Forrest, the missing son, who is said to ha\e been seen carrying a shotgun. Some supersti tious colored persons in this section seem to have an idea that to be found passing the Forrest farm after sundown might cause them trouble and they are not taking any rfianees. "If Joe is dead." one man remarked, ??he can't shoot, but he might put his cold hand on you, and if he's alive he might be crazy and use his shootiJ^ irons. "And." he added, "it don't do no harm to go the other way, nohow." Whereabouts of Joe Forrest. Some residents of the county are said to be anxious that a reward be offered for the arrest of Joe Forrest, although many are not altogether satisfied that Joe caused the death of his parents. So many reports have been received here as to his probable whereabouts that the county authorities do not place much cre dence in any of them. Jim Taylor thought he saw Joe Sunday, about the time the murder is thought to have been committed, headed in the direction of Washington; others think he called at their houses and asked for food, while still others say they saw him on the road armed with a shotgun. The latest report is that a man answering his de scription was seen on the tracks of the Chesapeake Beach railroad, walking to ward Washington, three days ago. Persons hereabouts are inclined to be lieve that Joe Forrest was last seen in the county Saturday, May l."?, in Leonard town. That Joe left there on one of the Potomac river boats is the belief of many persons who knew him. but they are not in possession of evidence to show in what direction lie went. It may be. it is ad mitted by some of the interested ones, that Joe made his way from Leonard town to the Potomac and crossed to the Virginia side of the river. While it is realized that the man seen on the train on the Popes rCeek road answered the general description given of Joe Forrest, it is regarded as far from certain that he was the individual sought. Sheriff Dent's Opinion. It is the opinion of Sheriff Henry G. Dent that Joe Forrest is in Virginia. Joe had not traveled very much, it 1b learned, although he had frequently said he would like to see more of the world. He la nineteen years of age, six feet tall, is slender and has a small mouth. His light, curly hair,, long, slim face, blue eyes and good teeth, it is thought, would attract attention and make identification easy. Interest is being manifested in the re ported disappearance from the Forrest farm of the dog belonging to the family. It is said that the animal was unusually ferocious. By some the Incident is looked upon as having a bearing upon the trag edy. It is believed, however, that if the disappearance of the canine has any con nection with the double murder the son did not commit the crime; that the dog was taken away by persons'who intended to rob the house and" thought the coast would be clear with the animal away. But Joe is missing and without informa tion concerning his fate the detectives will continue to search for him. Good Clothes Are Missing. Members of the searching party found the farm clothes belonging to the son, but his good clothes were missing. Had Joe committed the deed while wearing his working clothes. It is thought, blood stains would have been found on them, and the absence of such stains is taken by some as indicating the innocence of the son It is also pointed out" that the crime may have been committed Sunday, the day after the Forrests were last seen "If the murder was committed Sunday, one of the officers said, "it is more than probable that Joe was wearing his best clothes. And it is possible that if he did commit the crime and got blood on his clothes he secreted them in a place where they cannot easily be found. 1 Detective Mayer of Baltimore and oth ers working on the case are satisfied that Joe has left this section. The ax with which the crime was committed has been taken to Baltimore and will be held as evidence. Neighbors Have Different Views. Neighbors of the Forrest family hold different views as to the identity of the murderer, some clinging to the belief that the son did not commit the crime, while others are willing to admit that circum stances are strong against him. Some of them who have known Joe since his boy- , hood davs. still believe he would not have attacked his parents. They think the body of Joe will be found secreted or buried There are swamps through lower Maryland, they say. in which a body might be secreted and not found tor months. , _ It was reported here this afternoon that a stranger in this section, thought to be a detective, is displaying considerable in terest in the affair, and. it is stated, he I may be a private detective employed by relatives of the deceased, or by the county authorities to assist in solving the mys tery. Some residents of the county think a secret Investigation is in progress. Inspector Boardman, acting superin tendent of police, said last evening that he had not received a request from the S; Mary county authorities for assist ance in the investigation of the case. No report had been received by him, he add ed of the presence in this city of Joe For rest. His only official knowledge of the case was the receipt of a description of young Forrest in a bulletin of the Balti more police department. ROW OVER CAR SEAT. Man Who Reserved It for Friend Now in Hospital. Raymond Haines and James W. Tal bert, residents of Alexandria, had a row on one of the cars on the Washington, Alexandria and Mount Vernon railway at the station, 12th and D streets, last even ing. It became necessary to remove Haines to the. Emergency Hospital to have his head dressed. Talbert was arrested for assault. Both boarded a car about C o'clock. Haines took possession of a seat and tried to hold part of it for a friend. Tal bert objected to his reserving the seat and. it is charged, pushed Haines with force enough to cut his head with broken glass. The affray created excitement in the crowded car. A policeman was summon ed and Talbert was escorted to the po lice station, while Haines was conveyed to the hospital. Talbert deposited ftO collateral for his | appearance in the Police Court tomor i row morning. Mann and Tucker No Longer Pitted on Stump. PETERSBURG TO VOTE DRY Negress Works Wonders in Charge of Reformatory. INSURANCE AGENTS TO MEET Scottish Rite Masons Close Conven tion?Pythians to Gather at Newport News Next Week. Special Correspondence of The Star. RICHMOND. .Va? May 22. loop. The possibility that the members of the state democratic committee are averse to further debates between candidates for nomination at the primary may be re sponsible for the determination of Mr. Tucker in discontinuing challenges to Judge Mann. Judge Mann since the meeting of the state committee has made no reference whatever to Mr. Tucker. Mr. Tucker is paying some attention, however, to Judge Mann and l\ls position 011 certain matters. Mr. Tucker is also engaged in giving some attention to what Judge Mann said about him in his speech at Buckingham Court House several daysl ago, when some declarations were made regarding the record of Mr Tucker. That the debates and the charges and counter-charges have had the effect of producing bitter ness no one ?wlll deny. One of the remarkable phases of the campaign if the attitude of the liquor men in many parts of the state who are supporting Judge Mann. On the other hand, several members of the senate, serving with Judge Mann during the last session, are aligned for Mr. Tucker. The thing is considerably mixed. While the consensus of opinion is that Judge Mann will win by a majority of 10,000, there are well posted politicians of the state who say the vote will be close, although practically all agree that the candidate from Nottoway has the best show. . Will Change Primary Plan. This is to be the last primary under tlie existing plan, as decided by a vast ma jority of the members of the state com mittee at the meeting held here. The plan has failed in everything that it was expected to accomplish. The prime and avowed object of the primary. was to defeat Senator Thomas S. Martin. In that, the first and signal failure of the scheme was registered. The next step was to allow the people to express their choice for candidates before going to the general election. That has proven a dismal failure, for under the operations of the plan It has proven so costly that there are few who dare to offer for positions. There are only two candidates for governor in lieu of three four years ago; one candidate for United States senator, but that was expected, for no Virginian appears willing to stand against Senatotr Daniel and to have defeat for his trouble; there are two candidates for attorney general, the same as four years ago. Beyond that the can didates have a clean field. It has transpired that the primary of four years ago cost the candidates for governor something like $15,000 each, and one of them spent close on to $"_*0,000. The plan prohibits any but the "ins" from offering, and for this reason politicians are turning against it. The people do not have a chance to register their prefer ences. for the reason that they have no one to vote for but the man already in office. There are some few exceptions, but in case of the members of Congress this is true. The "office trust" is being de nounced. and there is a demand for a return to the convention idea that the party may frame a platform and declare the principles of the party instead of having the candidates dragging the party after them on self-appointed issues. Negro Reformatory. About a year ago John H. Smyth, presi dent of the Negro Reformatory, died His management of the reformatory had been successful, and with his death an executive committee of the board of trustees was named to direct the insti tution. The committee appointed a colored woman?A. E. Shippen, sister-in-law to President Smyth?to take charge. She made her first report to the trustees a few days ago, and in one year she has accomplished wonders. When she took charge there was an indebtedness of several thousand dollars. This has been paid off, new buildings have been provided, the farming outlook is most encouraging, the boys are healthy, well fed and well clothed, and the committee?composed of leading white men, including two judges of the supreme court and lawyers and business men?cordially indorsed her administra tion in every way and made her the superintendent. She is given a home, rooms, servants, and is paid about $1,000 a year. The institution is supported by the state, and she is the first negro woman to be placed at the head of any institution In this state. Insurance Agents to Meet. Ijocal agents of the several fire insur ance companies doing business in Vir ginia are to meet in this city Monday morning for a session of some three days. The agents are to assemble to discuss matters pertaining to their work, to discuss laws which affect them, to consider what changes are necessary for their protection and that of the people of the state. The agents are cordially supporting the insuuance commissioner in efforts to drive from the state "wild cat" concerns. The week closing has been one of im portance to the Scottish Rite Masons of Virginia. The spring reunion of all the affiliated bodies of tne. order began here Monday night and continued to the end of the week. The degrees, beginning with the fourth and ending with the thirty-second, were conferred on the largest class that has ever offered in the 'history of the order. The work was done on a scale that has not before been witnessed in the south. A choir made up of men and women furnished \he music, the work requiring j several hours each night. Following each i session there was a banquet. ! Pythian Grand Lodge. The Grand I.odge of Pythians of Virginia will convene in Newport News Tuesday j evening at 8 o'clock.

The campaign has been on for several days. The judge of the court in that city when the petition was presented ordered the election to be held at the earliest day possible after the presentation of the paper, having in mind the disturlted and exciting situation that Invariably follows Bueh campaigns. From men acquainted with conditions, and who have kept Iti touch with events, the information is that the city will go dry by about 100 ma jority. That is the belief of gentlemen in that city.

Ninth and the Avenue. j was shot and badly liurt a night or two ago. Williams has been to the prison three times, being paroled several months ago. The police and detectives kept watch on him for some time, until he got work and was apparently a reformed man. He finally managed to get wagons and horses and began to do teaming work in the city. In the neighborhood was a man who was continually missing feed of all sorts from his stable. He watched for sev eral nights, and when he heard some one tampering with the door to his feedhouse he called out to know who it was. No reply was made. The man blazed away with a double-barreled gun. A few hours later, when a policeman was patrolling his beat, he came across the prostrate form of a man on the side walk. half a square from the scene of the shooting. He said he had been shot by a man who>had tried to hold him up. He was taken to the hospital. It was Williams who had been shot while trying to enter the feedhouse. Sev eral shots fired at him had gone wild and were to be seen In the woodwork of the house. Williams is now in the jail hospital and will be .held for the grand jury. He has been convicted of stealing rings from the hands of a woman who was ill in bed, of stealing calves and selling them and of other crimes. If he is convicted he will go to prison for life. G. A. R. Men There. Scores of the Grand Array of the Re public veterans who attended the cere monies incident to the unveiling of the Hantranft monument in Petersburg this week came to this city Thursday and many of them are still here. They vis ited all the battlefields around the city? Seven Pines (Fair Oaks). Malvern Hill, Yellow Tavern. Dutch Gap, Cold Harbor and others in the vicinity. Many attended the weekly meeting of Lee Camp Friday night. A number made speeches during the evening. Serenaded by the Girls. Ashland was the scene of an unusual demonstration this week. The college team from Randolph-Macon came to this city and played a game of ball and by winning landed the championship for the college. The faculty demanded a pledge of the boys that they would not take a drink, engage in any demonstration on their return and that they would get back to Ashland on the first train from the city. The boys complied in every way. They got back home and retired for the night. The usual services were held in the church that night and just after that had closed and the people had said their prayers for the night pandemonium broke loose. An immense bonfire was started on the college campus. The quarters of the members of the team were surrounded and for half an hour there was noise in large quantities. The serenaders used tinpans. horns, cowbeils. drums and any j sort of a thing that would produce a noise, regardless of harmony. They went to the homes of the professors and called them out for a speech. It was discovered that the serenaders were young women of the town, who had organized for the event, and who were chaperoned by a dozen married women and their husbands. It was a night of revel for the girls. The alleged gamblers arrested at the races here this week for operating books and for operating faro layouts are to be tried in Henrico county Monday morning. There is no let-up in the building boom in the city and activity in real estate seems to be on the increase. j REVENUE CUTTER SERVICE, j . * i ... Capt. Commandant Worth G. Ross of the revenue cutter service has gone to New York on an official visit to the ves sels and station at that port. Tomorrow he will visit and inspect the school of in struction at Arundel Cove. On these trips Capt. Ross is being accompanied by C. D, Hilles, assistant secretary of the treasury. Capt. F. M. Dunwoody. commanding the Yamacraw. and Second Lieut. William P. Ward of that vessel were visitors to the city and registered at the department dur ing the past week. Capt. Samuel R. Maguire, who for a number of years commanded the cutter Windom on the Chesapeake bay station, just prior to his retirement, also visited the department during the week. Capt Maguire has bean on a visit south and is on his way back to his home at Patch ogue. on Lond Island, N. Y. Capt. D. P. Foley, until recentlv super intendent of construction and repair of the revenue cutter service, with headquar ters at Baltimore, has assumed command of the cutter Seminole at Wilmington, N. C. Capt. Foley has been succeeded in'the repair and construction office by Cam William K. Reynolds. Lieut. H. D. Hinkley. executive officer of the cadet practice ship Itasca, who has been in the hospital for several weeks, has sufficient ly recovered to return to duty on board the vess?l at Arundel Cove and assist in preparing the ship for the coming- summer cruise. The cutter Manning, which is to do duty in Alaskan waters during the com ing summer, sailed from Seattle for Unalaska, Alaska, Thursday last. The vessel is under the command of ("apt. W. E. B. Jacobs, who has succeeded Senior Capt. Munger as commandant of the Bering sea patrol fleet. Upon the ships composing this fleet devolves the duty of looking after American fishing interests in the far north and the protection of the seal from the depredations of Japanese and other fishermen. Vessels of the fleet will visit arctic waters during the sum mer season. A report received at the department from Capt. Quinan. commanding the cut ter Tahoma, on her way from Baltimore to Washington state, states that the message directing him to proceed to Alexandretta, by way of Gibraltar, was received at St. Michaels. Azore Islands, on the morning of March 'JR. The vessel was coaled at once and left St. Michaels the same day. On the run to Gibraltar a strong head wind and heavy sea were encountered all of the way and the speed of the vessel was somewhat reduced thereby. The Tahoma passed in the straits in the midst of a heavy south east gale and anchored oft Gibraltar at 9:."50 p.m. on the 2d instant. The usual exchange of official visits with the authorities of the port was made, and after coaling the Tahoma sailed Imme diately fOr Alexandretta and Mersina. after communicating by cable with the American ambassador at Constantinople. The Tahoma is now at Alexandretta. Much, stisfaction is felt with the per formance of the Tahoma's machinery on the run of miles from Cape Henry to the Azores. The Tahoma used oply one-half the amount of coal which is found necessary on the older vessels. At her economical speed of about eight knots this would indicate that the new vessel has a steaming radius of approximately 7,000 knots. Orders and instructions to officers in the revenue cutter service have been is sued as follows: First Lieutenant of Engineers L. T.

Dodge, in assisting the steamer Olympia from the rocks of Tenhessee reef, March 24 last, has been ' transmitted by the State Department to the Treasury Department. The fact that the Olympia was owned by the bank called forth the letter.
