THEY SAY SHE IS AFRAID She rihI Several Others Were Yesterday In dieted for Ketplugr Disorderly Houses. Mrs. CuanlughaiuNext. Takes Furls Ureen. "Home and her rats are at the point uf war." The local historian of the future may have to record the fact that June 13, 1S9S, was a red-letter day In the an? nals of Elizabeth City county. Events of a character altogether unusual transpired?events which made some people beamingly glad, others pitiably sad and a few furiously mad. Yesterday morning a special grand jury, consisting of H. C. Marrow, Chas. E. Hewins. C. F. Holtzclaw, J. AV. Boy enton. Fred Cunningham and C. W. Hickman. was summoned by Judge Lee to investigate alleged violations of the law in the county. Mr. Marrow was made foreman. The jurors, being in? dustrious business men, got to work early and before noon they had exam? ined a number of prominent citizens from Phoebus. Their inquiries related mainly to the transgressions of the liq uor laws and the maintenance of dis? orderly houses in the town. The testi? mony of the witnesses has not been made public, and It Is well, perhaps, that the jurors decided to withhold It, for the stories that were told in the little chamber In which they sat would furnish material for the yellowest of yellow literature. Mrs. Julia A. Lancer, whose last no? table appearance in the legal arena was caused by her fondness for boiled Billy goat, was recorded the place of honor in the deliberations of the six Judicial Hankshans whose names arc written above. Things rare and racy were i--aid about Mrs. Lancer, and as they came from the lips of men who were not likely to be mistaken, and men of the highest standing for truth and veracity, they were promptly accepted as facts. The result was that Mrs. Lancer was unanimously Indicted, the charge against her being that she kept a disorderly house, which, translated into plainer English, means that her house is a place of 111 fame. Hut Mrs. Lancer Is not without com? pany. There are others. Mrs. Stetne man. who holds forth In a building on Mallory street: Mrs. Julia Hoagland, and one Thomas Doughty, who former? ly dwelt In Newport News, the only man upon whom the jurors turned their moral mortars, are fellow suffer? ers. Next month this interesting quar? tette, according to a positive statement made by Commonwealth's Attorney Collier late yesterday afternoon, will be called before Judge Lee to answer the indictments found against them. Mr. Collier says he does not doubt that there is sufficient evidence to easily convict them. Such was his declara? tion when the grand jurors presented to Judge Lee a paper In which they ad? vised that the licenses of the parties mentioned be taken from them, and added that the time had come when the outrageous disregard for morality and decency in-Phoebus should end. So far as heard from Mrs. Lancer Is the only one of the four unfortunates who has indulged in a vocal and visi? ble demonstration of disapproval of the course pursued by this meddlesome moral panel. Her sentiments, however, are doubtless those of her more dis? creet and less loquacious associates. But be that as- it may, Mrs. Lancer is not the woman to permit such .things to pass without freeing her mind a bit concerning them. Yesterday, after hearing the news from the little oven In which the jurors steamed and stew? ed all day, she declared that ehe intend? ed to tell something which will wake the natives. Her story, she says will make more than one person squirm. If the public must have the truth the public shall have it ungarnished and unadorned?in frigid chunks that will send cold chills up the spinal columns of some of those who hear, and then, in pyrotechnic fla&hes, illuminate a series of scenes upon which heretofore only the feeble rays of the dark lantern have been permitted to shine. But there are people who say that Mrs. Lancer Is talking now, and that is all; that when the time comes to testi? fy she will be afraid to make her words good. Those who take this view say that her utterances are slmplv those of an angry woman, and that, like women usually do. she will back down. Next month will tell, however. But one thing seems certain, she and her three com? panions will And it extremely difficult to convince a jury that the charges filed against them are not true. To do this they will have to disprove the statements of officers who have done duty in Phoebus for months and of cit? izens who make no mistake when they raise their hands and affirm that their words are true. TOOK PARIS GREEN. Suicide of a Woman at Phoebus Sat? urday. A suicide, which no one can account for, occurred at the house of Mollie Hubbard, a well known colored woman of Phoebus, Saturday afternoon. News of the tragedy did not get out until Sunday. The name of the suicide was Frances Lucas (colored), and she was about 25 years old. She had been living at the Hubbard house, which stands in.a re? mote quarter of the town, for some time. She had had no trouble with any one, as far as is known, and wai in her usual cheerful humor. Late Sat? urday afternoon she became ill and soon her condition was alarming. A physician was sent for, but before he arrived the woman expired in great ag? ony. She had taken enough Paris Green to kill at least a hundred per? sons. Her death is surrounded by an air of mystery. MRS. CUNNINGHAM WEPT. Her Condition Became Almost Hyster? ical in Court. When Mrs. Annie Cunningham, of Phoebus, was called into Judge Lee's court yesterday afternoon to give bond to answer an indictment for feloniously assaulting a man named Wilson, who now lies in Dixie Hospital suffer? ing from wounds which are aald to be of a serious nature, she created a scene. Saturday night she was placed under a bond of $250, secured by the Indorse? ment of William Erpenback, to answer an indictment, but yesterday, after having been indicted, It became neces? sary to find .a new' bondsman/ Shortly after entering tire chamber Mrs. Cun ningham became greatly agitate.!. She wept and in her emotion appealed to Judge Lee. Sheriff Curtis and others in the court-room, whose sympathy she hoped to gain. She tailed, however. Finally, after settling down to a calm consideration of the circumstances in which her pugnacious temper had in? volved her, she succeeded in securing the name of Mr. J. J. Loughran to her ; bond and was alowed to depart. Her husband. Harry Cunningham, was compelled to do likewise. This pair of well matched belligerants conduct a sa loon_known as the Stars and Snipes, which is located on Howard street, iii Phoebus, about a stone's throw from Mallory. They are both under indict? ment for a vicious assault upon Wil? son and will certainly be tried at the July term of the county court. From what can be learned of the af? fair it appears that the man went to the saloon early Saturday afternoon, and that while there he became in? volved in a quarrel, during which, it is alleged, he was assaulted by both Mr. and Mrs. Cunningham, the latter striking him with a chair. Wilson then succeeded in reaching the door and escaping to the street, but Mrs. Cunningham, who is a large and muscular woman, is said to have quick? ly followed, having in the meantime armed herself with a stick, and. upon overtaking him, brought the weapon down with all her force upon his head. The man fell bruised and bleeding from several ugly cuts. A tragic se? quel, it is said, would probably have ensued had not County Sergeant Cun? ningham, who happened to witness the assault, ran to the rescue of the help? less man. He was taken to Dixie Hos? pital for treatment. ABSOLUTELY FALSE. New York Voice's Article Denounced by a Citizen of Phoebus. Editor Daily Press: I saw the absurd and exaggerated ar? ticle of last week's edition of the New York Voice. I would say It Is absolute? ly false, not in one particular alone, but every particular, and evidently mali? ciously inspired. Governor Woodfin and Major William Thompson, who from my personal experience I know to be the heads of the Home?one or the other always In command?are kind, considerate and very forbearing, ami act towards the men In a paternal, pa? tient manner, and a watchful care, out? side and inside the Home is kept up. I personally was a member of the Home and a clerk In Major Thompson's office for eight months, and in the posi? tion I occupied I had a very good op? portunity to observe all the various de? partments, methods and discipline of the Home. A man at the beer-hall can have a few glasses of beer, and policemen warn him when he has enough and he cannot have more. In the Hygeia any one can have a bottle,.- one bottle of beer with a lunch, which must go with it, and only one bottle. There is no fighting. A little too much drink may be taken when the old vets are out on pass, and if very apparent a mild pun? ishment Is given. Good food. good treatment, cleanliness and the best hearted governor, and the treasurer. Major William Thompson, is a Chris? tian, kind gentleman, who, if he errs, it is always on the side of mercy. I understand the military power of the officers is the same used In the regular army. Phoebus, for Its size, can com? pare with any unincorporated town of the State?four churches, one colored church, several schools and a large, flourishing lodge of Good Templars. The New York Voice should not give voice to such "scandalum magnatum." and a citizen of this great common? wealth, and formerly a member of the Soldiers' Home. I trust the unpreju? diced public will believe me when I brand the entire article aforesaid as false in every particular and T speak without fear or favor only from a sense of justice and fair play. S. J. BROWN. WANTS RECRUITS. Chance for Fox Hill and Wythe Dis? trict. Private L. V. Whiting, of Company D, arrived in the city Sunday from Jacksonville and will remain ten days. He wants twenty-five recruits. His ef? forts thus far have been rewarded by the enlistment of several young men. Mr. Whiting brings good nws from the boys at Jacksonville. They are all well and are enjoying themselves in the balmy atmosphere of Camp Cuba Libre. The Peninsula Guards have made many friends in Jacksonville, where the doors of the best people are opened to them. Fox Hill and Wythe district are said to be the only sections of the county that failed to do their part in furnish? ing recruits for the Guards before thc-y left. Now, it is understood, they have a chance to redeem themselves. It is claimed that they will do it. CHARGED WITH ROBBERY. A man named Coles, who came here from Norfolk with a companion named Barnes, claims that the latter robbed him of $20.. Barnes was arrested and had a hearing before Justice Furness. He gave bond to answer an Indictment. Coles was locked up as a witness. Yesterday afternoon the special grand jury indicted Barnes. BRIEF ITEMS. The Rev. C. B. Bryan, rector of St?
