WHO SHOT THIS MAN?
A. W. Myers Found on Jlie lleacll Wounded |
In the Hand and Leg.
Bang ! Bang !
Two sharp reports of a revolver ran? |
out shortly after 11 o'clock last night,
and a few -minutes lalteir 'th,.' soreaims
of la. iKi.n were heard coming from the
'C*asin,>.
Among the pedestrians on the street
Bit the time were Messrs. Edloe More
cock, Richaird Henley aind Harry Cox.
They heard the reports of the pistol |
and the screams that f A lowed. Pa
!tnol.mian Mallory and W. T. Robbins
??vre also attracted by 'the noise and
they hastened to the beach.
Lying <jn the edge of the embank?
ment opposite 'the bowling alley was
white -man roiling -and 'tossing as if in I
?great agony. The policemen and itihe
cltizens j>ivked 'the man uji and carried I
.him to the bow l?ng alley and laid him
on the porch. A hurried examination
was made, and it was found that the
man was wounded in two places?in j
'the right leg and left hand. (But who
shot him is a mystery that wais not
solved last night. It was at first
thought he had shot himself, but 'the
fa'il-uine to find la revolver in the man's
clothes or on the ground, wheire he lay |
seemed 'to explode the itlbexxry. In goinp
through the man's .pockets it was found I
?that his name was A. W. Meyer, but |
no one seemed -to know him. At that |
time the man wai- In great pain and
could not .talk. When asked who shot j
him he replied between .moans that he
did not know. Mr. T>. S. Jones, who |
was aititracied hy IMeyer's screams, ar
. rived on) the scene with a sheet of can?
vas and the wounded main was carried |
to (the Police Court room, where I>r.
W. F. Cireasy. the city physician, dress?
ed his wounds-.
lit woe some time before iMeyetr would
.Balk. 'Finally to ex-'Poli<vman Z. T. I
Jones, he ?Udd he was employed ai a
clerk by Mr. W. 'M. Parker, who con?
ducts a grocery stcine on Twenty-sev
enHih street, and boarded at Mr. W. P.
iBallard's house on TahSrty-thir J
street. He had been down town and
was on his -way home. When near'the I
bowling alley on (the beach a man
f.l-ipped,' up behind him with a revolver |
in h'is .hlaind and said: "You d-" ?
scoundrel, I'w got you." Meyer trie
to wrench the revoilvejr fiivim the mom si
.haind The.ni it was thia't he was shot in
the left hand. Still he .tried to get pos?
session of the weapon and another shot
was -fired, which took effect in lus leg.
?Whether the .mlin went through his
pockets or mot Meyer could not say. He
was positive that he had not leas than
?15 ,>ni ibis pers.^ns hut the money could
not be found alt 'blue police station.

New York staff of the same pa.;.er ac?
companied the legislators, as did iMrs

wi f e.
As chronicled in the -Daily Press of
yestierday uhe senatorial party arrived
at th.- Chamberlain fnun Washington
Puesday night, expecting to find the
Anita in waiting for them to start for
its destination.
The speedy little yacht hod met with
a mishap during the previous night
and was brought to the ship yard to
have her machinery overhauled. The
work wa.s rusiied as speedily as possi?
ble and the Anita left' INewport News
last night about 10 o'clock, arriving at
old Point before 11. An hour later th
distinguished gentlemen, together with
the ladies of the party, left their rooms
at the hotel and silently repaired to
the government wharf, where they |
boarded the yacht and started on t.h-ir |
journey
T,. a reporter for the Daily Press Mr.
Brown stated before leaving that he
expected to reach Mava.na; not later
than .Saturday night, all things cons
ered. The stay in Cuban waters would
extend over two weeks or more, durir
which time the Senators and , 'ongrcas- :
men will make personal abeeirvatii
as to the conditions of affairs on ;
island and the tendency of public fe
ing with regard both to the Main- d
aster and Cuban war.
Ail ,.f tii,- expenses of the trip, s.
Mr. Br-wii. will be borne by the N
York Journal, and every available co
fort and luxury will be afforded t
Journal's distinguished guests.
A r-p-rt-r for the Daily Press found
the legislators crocking jokes and :

warm down where we will come hack
post haste?net because we nr.- afreid.
?you know. but we will have a devil of
a light on our -hands up in WasbjAtoi
ton."
"What is the real object of your visit
to Havana?"
"Well, to tell the truth. 1 don't know.
The Journal wants us to go and we are
going. I presume-we must look around
-and judge for oureelves. r?r rather for
the Journal, what should be- done with
the Cubans, and give our opinions as
to the Maine disaster, being influenced
by what We See and hear."
""What is your opinion as to the cause
of the disaster?"
"Well, I stand witih Captain Sigsbee
on that question?refrain from expres?
sion until all is known. Tt looks to me
however,, as though th-'.e must be
some significance in th ' eemt'inued
delay in summing up the deliberations
of the court of inquiry."
"How do you regard Se.-rvia.ry Dong's
statement to the effect that Spain can?
not be held responsible for the Maine
horror?"
'?-Well. Mr. Dong and I are good
friends, and I guess I had better not
say anyrhing about that, although I
will admit that 1 have formed an opin?
ion. If you're good at guessing, guess."
"iio you -think there will be any se?
rious trouble with Spain?"
"fall on nc- when I return ami I will
be able to tell you."
It is th- present understanding that
the party will return to Washington
via. i m Point.
The overhauling of the Anita at the
shipvard was done with the greatest
possible dispatch. In view of the dis?
tinguished party going as passengers,
orders were given to thoroughly ren?
ovate the little vessel and provide every
luxury, comfort and convenience that
would add -to their enjoyment of the
trip. Several hundred dollars' worth of
carpets, tapestries and other furnish?
ings ware sent aboard yesterday by Mr.
IM. Ii. Dash, the furniture dealer, and
the interior of the ylacht was a scene
of hustle up to the lime she left the

During the fiscal year ending June
30. 1897. the importations of merchan?
dise for immediate transportation in
bond to interior points through New?
port News Was as follows:
Number of packages, 83,666; invoice
value* $1,390^06.00; ci-ti mated duty,
$438,731.33. .
This is an (important factor . in ftihe
business of the port, requlrfhg prompt
and careful handling and 'adds more
than one-half to the total expenses, In?
creasing'the cost at this port of the col?
lection of revenue. Eliminating this
item, the cost of collecting a dollar at
the port of Newport News would be
about eight cents instead of eighteen,
against fifty-four cents at Norfolk.
Norfolk does not report any buistoesa
of this kind at that port for 1897.
