FIGHTING THE RAILROADS
The Ingalls Charter Ottered in the Interest
of Mr. Uarllne, lint Hampton
People Want It. Other
Stems of Interest.
It was 11 o'clock yesterday morning
before the first ?witness of the day in
the Ash'by ease was called to the stand.
At that hour the beaming face of Judge
Mann, whose journey liiom his home in
?Xotu/way owunty to Hampton hud been
lie lay ed by events'Which were not oblig?
ing enough to cast their shadows before,
entered the chamber? and th.n impa?
tient attorneys, jurors and spec-tutors
straightway began to smile upon them
s.ives and everjtbody else. But that
was perfectly natural, for there is some?
thing in the alble iNottoway attorney
that charms men. Bright, active, a.ert
when one would suppose that his mind
is far away, he meets his opponents at
every point, but meets them openly,
fairly, and always with radiant feat?
ures. His courteous manner of dealing
with witnesses) wins him their conti
den.e at once and the friendly feeling
thus inspired makes for him friends of
all.' Hence his popularity in Hampton
is easily acct.unted'. for,
Tb>. testimony taken yesterday was in
many respects a repetition of that token
Saturday, it began with that of Mr.
Skid Hudgir.s, who related a conversa?
tion with Mr. Ash'by in 'December, 1S1MJ,
?when he said that he wus sorry the
"thing" had happened; that "it had
never been proven- that he did it" and
thut he, Mr. Ashby, was afraid! that
"somelKjjy would have this thing to pay
for yet." Others testified to conversa?
tions oc like character. Th-. n came wit?
nesses who had looked from the Hoi>e
street crossing down the narrow lane
to.vard the lower door of the furniture
store witllMoUt being able to distinguish
ome man from another when two or
more were standing ?.t the- latter point.
Among those who tesVjfied were officers.
This lasted a long time. Some of the
witnesses became angry and gave the
attorneys for the defense sharp, replies
to questions which they though were in?
tended to mix them up. At times it
see met! that there would be a repetition
of some of the scenes that have already
mark-.d this famous trial. But the day
passed without, a notable outhreuk and
the crowd went home to give their
mouths a rest and take a re-ef in their
outstretched ears.
Mr. Bridgeforth's testimony was the
mlost interesting. Judge Mann asked
him to say whether the charge of Mr.
Ashtby that lie had entered the store in
connpo.r.y with a woman, at night, was
true or not.
"That's false!" said he. He had never,
he said, gone into the store with a wo?
man after it had' U.en Closed'. His ac?
quaintance with the lady involved in the
eist?, whom he gave a good name, began
about thv_- 10th of May, 1S94. He had
never kept company with her and had
been in her society but a few times.
Frequently he saw her at the Baptist
church, oc' which they were both mem?
bers. A note, written, by him to the
lady, saying that he desired to see her
and requesting her to fix the time and
place at which an interview could he
had. was read and Mr. Bridge-forth was
asked to explain, it. He said that the
young woman had l>een traduced and
he wished to wann, her against the man
who had done it. The note was handed
to her at church, and' subsequently?he
did not know how long afterward?he
saw her in the store, but the conversa
th n that took place there was absolute?
ly frvie from improprieties of any kind.
After this he went to Bla;tostone in the
hope of contracting for the sale of fur?
niture to two large schools. He left on
the Hth of July, 1S94, and his business
required him to remain aiwuy until the
17th of August. Colonel Tabfn subjected
Mr. Bridgeforth to a rigid cross-exam?
ination, but without shaking his testi?
mony in any particular.
Captain Bonnevell next took the stand.
He had kn^'ivn Mr. Efiridgeiforth some
six or eight years and had introduced
him- to Miss Birch. Judge Mann asked
Captain Bonneveli ilf he and Mr. Bridge
forth' were on friendly terms, but before
witness could unsiwer the question Col?
onel Tabb objected. It was finally
iwithirawn. Captain 3tonnevell than
said that the introduction took place
atn.ut the 15th of May and that toward
the last of June the lady left Hampton.
IKe did not know whether Bridgeforth
visited 'Wer or not, as he was away from
home. The witness was then, turned
over to CUlone-1 Tabb, but he declined to
ask any questions. He excepted, tloiw
tiver to all that Captain Bonr.evell had
said.
At this point Judge "Mann moved that
the jury be instructed to visit Hope
street and make a test for themselves as
to whether it is possible to distinguish
a man fnotm the crosing to the door of
the furniture store wtJich Bridgeforth
is alleged tl> have entered. At 7:30
o'clock the jurors, in change of Sheriff
Curtis, went to Hope street and spent
nearly an hour.
What this result of their experiment
was could not be ascertained, as they
were instructed' to hold no conversation
with anyone. ThSs morning the first
'witness for the defense will take the
stand, and it is probable that by tomor?
row noon the testimony will have .been
concluded. Then, will begin the argu
I meint upon the Instructions, which will
I consume the rest of the day;
FIGHTING THE 'luUiUROAD.
Strong Effort Be Made *o Kill the
Ingalls Charter.
Notwithstanding the {act that the
people of this county are almost unani?
mously in favor of the construction of a
new railway to -onnect Hampton, and
Newport 'News, a desperate effort is to
be made to kit', the Tngalls charter. It
was expected- that the aotion of the
council 'In grunting Mr. Darling the use
of King street would prevent any com?
petitive railway enterprise from getting
into teiwtn. But it has ibeen 'learned
that the road, with which Mr. Ingalls"
name is associated, andi which is backed
by other men of great wealth and Influ?
ence, is certain to he built if a charter
can be obtained, and that the action of
the council cannot prevent it from, en?
tering the business section <tit the dty.
It seems now that the Ingalls company
are not anxious for the use of King
street. l.wt ihut they contemplate pass?
ing through, town by a route which wiW
make their cars almost as convenient .o
the traveling public as those- of Mr.
Darling, anU which will also enable
them to reach! the Soldiers' Home, one
of their principle ?bjective points of the
now line. Besides. It Is said that the
-harter of the company is sl> broad with
respect to the condemnation' oc" lands
that farmers along the route between
Hampton and Newport Mews, and in
other portions of the county, may Iv
forced to surrender their teeming acres
tb -monopolist-id rui'liway mag-nates.
These anldl other arguments are to he
used with the members of the legislature
In the hope of defeating an enterprise
which promises to do r ore for the ma?
terial'development ami advancement of
Elizabeth City county than anything
that bus occurred in its history. Mean?
time, the people of the county, as above
said, are strongly in favor of granting
I the charter, and if the matter were sub?
mitted to a vote not a single speech
j would Ibe required to insure for it a
rousing po| ill.ir indorsement. The op?
position to the new road is entirely in
the interest of Mr. Darling and no one
?believes that any intelligent farmer
fears that he will have to do more thnn
grant the right of way through his land.

The Increase of Home*.
One of the best possible facts in the
latter-day progress of this country is
the increase in the number of homes.
In crowded centers of population, such
as New York, and one or two other
cities, the flat and the hotel must al?
ways be necessary, for space is too val?
uable to be monopolized by the humble.
But even around the very large citios
there are being built thousands
and thousands of suburban cot?
tages and country residences, and
all through the length and breadth
of the country, in the towns,
(Tillages and cities artistic homes are in?
creasing at an astonishing rate. If any
one will take the trouble to look up
the literature on the subject he will
find that in this country there are more
than a hundred papers devoted to these
home builders, giving them each weok
plans and suggestions. The number of
books upon low-priced architecture,
written in the past fifteen years, ex?
ceeds the total for a century previous,
A wider education is being spread, and
the gain in every way Is enormous.
A man who owns his home Is a bet?
ter citizen, even if there Is a mortgage
on it. There is a feeling of personal j
partnership in the protection of proper?
ty and the preservation of public order
which makes him stand for what Is
best in law and government. It is
the beat possible thing for his wife and
children; best for him and best for the
country.
Ilogus Oystern.
The municipal authorities of Paris
are Just now engaged In the suppres?
sion of an altogether novel form of
food adulteration which is assuming
phenomenal proportions. Real oysters
are expensive In Paris, and so, with
i the object of suiting slender purses, ar?
tificial oysters on the half shell have
been invented, which are sold at twen?
ty cents a dozen, and they are so clev?
erly made and look so nice and iresh
that, once lemon juice or vinegar has
been added, they can not be distin?
guished from the real article, especial?
ly when white wine is taken in connec?
tion therewith. The only genuine
thing about these oysters is the shell,
the manufacturers buying second-hand
mells at a small coat, and fastening the
spurious oyster in place with a taste?
less paste. The municipal laboratory
aas not yet proclaimed the ingredients
if which these bogus oysters are com
aosed, but has announced that they
iro of a harmful character.
