OFF FOR CUBA TODAY "To Satisfy Our Curiosity" Says Congressman Smith. MR TENNIS'APPOINTMENT III? Name Substituted for that of Mr. Ceo. A. Schmelz ?s ? Member of th? Klec tural Itomril Other Matter? of Iuterest. Tii - Dally Press correspondent yes terday iv-oeiv. d authoritative informa? tion confirming th.- report that a party of United States Congressmen w> re about to embark for Cuba on the yaoht Anita. * Tie- party will foe composed of the following genUemen and liadies: Sen? ator J. U. Galilnger and wife. Senator J. M. Thurston and wife, Senator F. l>. Money and wife, and Miss Money. ] tteprti-entaitive Amos J. Oummings, Itepi-iisentaitive iWHliaim A. Smith, i.M.r. II. .1. Brow n and Miss Valish. When approached by the Daily Press correspondent yesterday, Congressman William A. .Smith did not attempt to conceiaj the fact than tihe trip would be undertaken, and spoke of the expedi? tion very willingly. "Yes, we are going to Havana as he said. The trip i,-: made to satisfy the individual curiosity of the member's of the puny, Mr. Smith explained, and they will not act in their official capac? ities while in Cuba. The expenses .jf fitting up the staunch liittle yacht An? ita is being borne 'by the millionaire proprietor of the New York Journal.Mr. W. P.. Hearst, and it is a; his request, as weil ;is to gratify their ,,\vu curi? osity, tihlat the party was organized for the trip. ?' Y-tv members of the party arrived at Old Point late Tuesday night by tine Washington special amd rpgistertcd at the Ohaimlberlin. Ytesterday they vis ?te l Fort Monroe, where tlhey spent four hours in compainy with CV>lon?il Franlt. who showed them itfoirougih the fort in person. All of the defenses were inspected with great interest 'by the visitor.-. The party expects to sa.il immediately \i|)"ii 'the completion of the work of making the Anita, ready for the voy? age. Congressman Smith was not incliu'e.l, to discuss the [Ma:ine disaster, hut" i\ was elicited that he is a. believer in the recognition of the belligerency of the Cubuu insurgents. LATER?The Anita sailed fo.r Ha? vana tonight at 11 o'eh.ek with the dis? tinguished pairty aboard. THE NKW EUBCTORAL BOARD. Change in the Names Recommended a Subject of Comment. The appointment by tire Legislature on Tue,-.lay of the electoral board for Fjllzuibeth City county confirmed the report that was mentioned tn the Daily Press several days ago to tihe effect thail an effort was being made to sub? stitute ttiv name of Mr. E. M. Tennis for thvtt of iMr. George A. -Schmelz, who was recommended by the county exec? utive eommittee. as one of the members oif the b.ard. ? The Iboi.urd Us named comslsts of Messrs. 'Segar Whiting, T. H. Parra m ire and E. M. Tennis, the two former gentlemen having been recommended, along with Mr. Schmelz, by the county ox e cut i v e c.i > m m it Kse. Mr. E. E. Montague, uho floater dele? gate from this legtetatlve district, was. f,ii- some reason, opposed to the ap? pointment of Mr. Schmelz as a imemb^r at tihe leard, and at his instance the name of Mr. T. nnis was smlbstltuted ?for that of .Mr. Sch.melz. A member of the district! committee. w.ho went to Richimond to investigate the truth of the report that the change in the rec? ommendations of the executive com? mittee would 'be made, learned from Mr Montague that tihe'rumor was Well founded. Mr. iMontague stated as his ireason for taking this position that he desired to eliminate the ill .feeling that was aro'US>ed in the party during tihe last campaign, and restore entire har? mony and unity. I Among the hardest workers for the election of Mir. 'Montague was Mr. Schmelz, 'and the unexpected -develop? ment in the electoral board matter was the subject yesterday of considerable comment. , , The change In the electoral board throws tue balance of power in the hands of those who opposed Mr. Mon? tague's nomination, and bis action is iregardied in some quarters as a viola? tion of his obligations to those -who fought 'for him wihen he most needed supporters. THE EDWARDS 'CASE. A C arney M. T. Hughes Appeals FV*r a j "Writ of Error. On Tuesday Aittorney M. T. Hughes pr.-s- nt'i d to Judge .1. G. Blacksume, of the 'Circuit Court, the petition of T. T. 'Edwards, for a writ, of error from the judgment of the County Court ivn Ivied against him in. January, by wihich he was sentenced to serve it wo years and six months In the peniten? tiary. The petition is albly drawn, and re? cites three 'reasons for the granting of the writ. The fin-t ground assigned in the petition Is set forth in the first bill of exceptions, claiming that the Coun? ty Court was in error in' granting Live first, second, third, -fourth, fifth, sev? enth, eighth and ninth instructions to the jury, a skied 'for by the Comimon wealth. Num<irm?s cases aire cited in the petition to sustain the claim of er r-. IT. The second reason for the issuance of a writ of error ii3 set forth in bill of exceptions No 2, and reference is made bo the certified copy of the evidence ami the law governing the case. The other cans.- f.-r the applicant ion for the w rit Is that the court erred in of, nruling the motion to arrest judge? ment for errors alppeis ring on the face of the record, in which case tihere is no necessity f.-r a bill of exceptions. The 'first error in the rveord is its failure ?t.? show affirmatively, as required by law. tha't the prisoner was arraigned. That the record dn?es not show that the jury was summoned by proper author? ity is the second error complained of, and the .last Haw is uhe fact that tiiie record omits to state that tihe same jury found the verdict against the prla N NEW 8 oner that whs sworn to trv- his case i?dp?aick?t<'* ?** the papers and nil decide whether ur not to issue a writ of error during vacation An unusually largo array of legal tal ent was present ut the Warwick Circuit ?ourt on Tuesday to welcome the Judge upon the occasion of his entering on Ms duties. Attorneys [Hughes aind So? gar, and Mr. Joihn Weymonth. of Hampton; Attorneys ?ickford, Lett N* 1ms. Wiileox, Serranes and Ol?irk,and I\>Iice Justice Brown, of Newport 'News, were aimoing those in attendance. It is protoaible that the norm of the Circuit 'Court of Elizabeth city county will lie changed after the first of July to the Last on ithe list. The docket is larger at present than it has been for many yeairs, and Oho change will give the county a longer term than the oth? er courts of Judge Btackstone's circuit. It will probably be necessary to bold special terms of courl in. order to clear up tlio ,bM-ket. and thus Judge Black stone declaired bis intention. ! System and Street Improve? ments Not to He Had Now. News reached here late vest ;rdty af? ternoon t'r-.m Richmond that th ? pro? posed bond issue had "been kil'-O. Some time ago a bill was introduced in the State Senate to amend the Hampton ehsiirtor in order to issue '.. iids to the amount ,,f itOO.000 to pave the its and put in a sewerage sys? tem. Th-' bill came up and was referred to the committee on counties, cities and towns. This committee reported unfa? vorably. The bill in an almended form was again sent to Richmond and in the new shape it passed bosh House and Senate. Attorney Francis F. Causey, who had fought th<- bill from the first, immedi? ately went to the State cap Hoi and ft nially succeeded in getting the Senate p. re consider the bill. The Senate adjourned yesterday af? ternoon and Che bill to amend the char? ter had not ibee-n presented to it. course no action can now be- taken to Wave the bill pushed through. FEMALE DOCTOR Fl NET). An interesting case was tried last night by Justice J. W*. Richardson, in which the medical .profession of Hamp? ton was concerned. Dr. W. E. Atkins (colored), brought charges agaln's'l .Maitie Colemain, (col? or,-,1). of Norfolk, for practicing wi'th ,'Uf a license. The woman it* what is known in col? ored circles as a "conjure doctor," and '..'il ben giving various and sundry pills for bruin trouble, which arc not calculated to add very greatly to the mental faculties of even a lunatic. The evidence was all against the fe? male doctor, and justice Richardson fined her $30 and costs. A compromise was agreed 'to. how? ever, by which 'Dr. Atkins paid the costs, with t.he understanding that the w, man would leave town tfiis morning on the 6:30 boat tor Norfolk.
