KATIE BOOK'S BAD LUCK

roe. Other lluiuH.
Notwithstanding the fact that the
town of Phoebus has this week furnish?
ed a number of events of a highly
sensational character, the news that a
disgraceful and gory riot had taken
place there Tuesday night, was a sur
prlae to the people of this city when it
became known yesterday morning. As
a matter of fact, it was generally ex?
pected that, alter the indictment of
Mrs. Lancer, Mrs. Steineman. Mrs.
Moagland and Mr. Doughty, the
wild and wooly old town would
enter at once upon its good behavior
until tlie events of the week, having
passed the ordeal of a nine days' won?
der, had been forgotten. But it was
not to be, for, mark you, Phoebus is
not built that way. Other towns, un?
der similar circumstances and condi?
tions, might have adopted that course,
but Phoebus, never.
Shortly after 9 o'clock Tuesday night
more than 100 regulars from Fort
Monroe and about the same number of
Maryland volunteers from their quiet
camp on the shore of the placid moat
that skirts the garrison, met near Mrs.
Stelneman's house of entertainment on
Mallory street and engaged in a bloody
battle. The fight lusted until midnight
and might have gone on until daylight
had not Colonel Lane, of the First
Maryland Regiment, meddled with it.
No one was killed, but a number of
volunteers and several regulars are
wearing various geometrical figures,
interspersed here and there with
crescents, upon their faces. While
women figured In the affar but one was
hurt. Some one forgot himself and
brought a beer bottle down upon her
mouth. Sergeant Cunningham, at the
head of the Phoebus police force, did
his best to quell the disturbance, but
the surging mob swept them out of
the way and went on with the light.
Almost from the moment the Mary?
land troops landed at Old Point there
has been bad blood between them
and the regulars at the fort. The lat?
ter, well drilled and used to the rigid
discipline of the army, have, it la
alleged. Indulged In numerous uncom?
plimentary remarks concerning the
military performances of the volun?
teers and their lack of proper deco?
rum in the presence of their superiors
in rank. This angered the Maryland
men, who declared in the breezy rural
vernacular of their native State, that
they would get even. Accordingly,
they are said to have invited the reg?
ulars to a settlement of their differ?
ences at Phoebus. The event waa to
have taken place a week ago, but cir?
cumstances compelled a postpone?
ment until last night, when fortune
seemed to favor both sides.
The regulars were the first on the
ground. Shortly after 8 o'clock they
began to assemble in the vicinity of
Mrs. Steineman^e free and easy estab?
lishment on Mallory street. "Within
were mixed drinks and women, a com?
bination which appeared to stimulate
their fighting qualities to the highest
The Maryland men, hearing that a
force of regulars was at the Stleneman
Flouse, at once marched upon the
place and bombarded it, using such
weapons as they could conveniently lay
their hands upon for that purpose,
and In less than ten minutes a scene
of disorder wilder than any that has
ever occurred in the town was in pro?
Stones and other missiles were hurl?
ed at the saloon with terrific force and
went crashing through the doors and
windows, causing the civilians within
to fly for tnelr lives.
The regulars promptly replied by
throwing empty beer bottles at the at?
tacking party and. it is said, by oc?
casionally tiring off their revolvers.
Tn the midst of the melee Katie
Rook, who lives at Mrs. Steineman's
place, rushed In among the men from
the Fort like a Joan of Arc and was
rewarded for her daring by being
smashed in the mouth with a beer bot?
tle. She fell to the floor under the
feet of the angry and excited men and
was luckv to escape with her life. The
fighting ' continued at Steineman's
place for more than half an hour, the
attacking party occupying a position
opposite Prlt chard's ssloon, from
which. It Is said, liberal supplies of
liquid ammunition were obtained.
Then the scene changed and a brief
period of peace ensued.
The calm, however, did not last long.
The Maryland troops, finding that they
could not dislodge the regulars from
Fort Steineman. retreated to Mrs
Julia Lancer's establishment at the
intersection of Mallory and Mellen
streets, where they qulcklT fortified
themselves. Hardly had they taken
refuge inside of Mrs. Lancer's place,
however, when the regulars assaulted
the house with brickbnts and beer bot?
tles and for another half an hour the
battle raged as furiously as it had at
the other place. Now and then a
man with his face smeared with
blood tumbled to the floor, but the
flght went on, while a torrent of oaths
floated out on the midnight air and
mingled with the walls of frightened
women and the crash of breaking
! glass. Bedlam reigned.
Out in the street people screamed
for the police in the foolish belief that
four men could master two hundred
soldiers made wild by anger and
drink. No one knew how the terr ble
uproar would end. but most of those
who stood afar off and heard th-?
cries and curses of the men engaged
in it confidently expected that there
would be more than one murder to ac?
When it was found that the civil
authorities could not quiet the d's >r
der word was sent to Fort Monroe and
about forty men under Lieutenants
Riley and Roman were sent to Phoe?
bus. Their appearance caused both
regulars and volunteers to beat a hasty
retreat and by 12 o'clock Phoebus was
doing as well as could be expected.
Sergeant Cunningham and his . men
then began a search for the injured.
They found but one man. however.
He had fallen in the rear of Mrs.
Lancer's saloon and was in a helpless
condition, but was not dangerously
hurt. Probably the most seriously in?
jured person who took part in the row
Is Katie Rookv whose purpose, it is
said, in exposing herself to danger,
was to keep the regulars tn Mrs. Stein?
eman's. accommodating establishment.
Tuesday, /waaipay day and both reg
ulars and volunteers were out for a
time. They had it.
The row. it is said, will have the ef?
fect of curtailing the privileges hereto?
fore granted tu the men. Pusses will
be denied those who took part n it and
other forms of punishment may be ad?
Last night pickets were stationed
at every outlet from the fort and not
a soldier was permitted to leave the
reservation. Beton- the promuitory
der was issued, however, more than a
hundred regulars and volunteers set
out for Phoebus. They were arrested
and returned to the garrison. It is
said that they were preparing to re?
new hostilities when apprehended.

Owing to the fact that the small
wooden building used as a jail has been
over-crowded (luring the past four or
five days, extra precautions were taken
by Sheriff Curtis last night to prevent
the escape of. any of his prisoners.
Moreover, a rumor reached him late in
the evening that a number of Chis
man's friends were acting in a suspi?
cious manner and that it would be wise
for him to be on his guard against a

ting him and Diggs at liberty. Ac?

LITTLE. BUT O MY.
How a Sergeant Brought Order Out or
It is unfortunate that no one cou'd
be found at a late hour last night from
whom the name ct the hero of the bat?
tle of Phoebus could oe learned. Out
the story of the masterly manner in
which, with his dukes as his only
weapons, he brought order out of chai.s
is known, and Iiis name will be ascer?
tained and given to the public some
other day. This hero is a sergeant in
one of the companies of the First regi?
ment, Maryland volunteers, but which
one, like his name, is yet to be learned.
The sergeant is a small man with a
face in which good nature beams like
the spray from a bubbling fountain.
No one would take him to be a fighter,
and almost any one, looking at him,
would wonder why he didn't stay at
home with his wife and babies instead
of going away to war. The sergeant
was a member of the squad sent up
by Colonel Lane to quell Tuesday
night's riot. Being in command he or?
dered the belligerents to desist. Half
a dozen big fellows turned a scornful
look upon the little man, and one
of them told him to go where
the tire is not quenched and the
worm dleth not. The sergeant re?
plied by promptly knocking the speakt r
down. The big fellow speedily regained
his feet, but no sooner had he done so
than he was again sent sprawling to
the earth. This time he did not rise so
quickly. But he got up and started
with a savage lire in his eyes toward
the little sergeant. That was a fatal
mistake. The diminutive orderly this
time raised his right and dealt the man
a blow that laid him out for thirty
minutes. Those who saw him stretched
on the ground thought the sergeant
bad killed him. The latter then turned
his attention to the others, but there
was no fight in them. They became as
gentle as lambs and as harmless as
doves and marched off witli him to the
fort. The pugilistic little sergeant is
now the pride of the regiment.
HARDWARE MEN MEET.
Eighth Annual Session of This Associ?
ation Now Sitting at Old Point.
The eighth annual session of the
Southern Hardware Dealers' Associa?
tion was called to order in the Cham
berlin Hotel ball-room yesterday morn?
ing by President E. W. Burnett, of
Montgomery, Ala. One hundred and
twenty-five manufacturers and jobbers,
representing almost every city of im?
portance in the South, are in attend?
ance. The meeting was opened by
singing the national hymn "America,"
the notes of which echoed and re?
echoed through the great ball-room.
The day's session was taken up with
the reading of President Burnett's ad?
dress, the report of the secretary-treas?
urer and the appointment of commit?
tees. During the afternoon papers on
the relation of the manufacturers to
the jobbers and the relation of the job?
bers to the manufacturers were read
and discussed. Among those who took
part in the discussion which followed
the reading of these interesting papers
were Mr. J. D. Oliver, of Pittsburg.
Pa.; Mr. James D. Foote, of New York
City; Mr. A. B. Barker, of Lynchburg,
and Mr. J. D. Moore, of Birmingham,
Ala. A feature of the s.-^sion which
was very interesting was the opening
of the question-box. The session wl.l

HIS SIGNS DIDN'T WORK.
Aa Innocent Youth Mis ts the Wrou;
"How is it you don't have to pay any
fare?" asked an unsophisticated youth
of a prominent employee in the Michi?
gan Central offices in Detroit as the
two came in from Dearborn on one of
the company's trains the other morn?
ing. The boy from the farm had sev?
eral times noticed the railroad man on
the train and always obesrved that the
conductor nodded pleasantly, but uever
asked him for a ticket. His pastoral
curiosity was aroused and he decided
to learn why such apparent favors
"Why, I am a Mason," answered the
man who held a pass, in a confidential
"Gosh! It's a good thing to be a
Mason, isn't it? Saves lot of fare, eh?
Wish I was oue."
"Well, you seem to be a pretty de?
cent sort of a fellow and I don't mitul
putting you on so that you will be able
to ride free, too," said the railroad
man. "Of course," he added in an un?
dertone, "it's against the rules of Ma?
sonry to divulge the secrets, but I
guess you won't give me away."
The youth pledged his honor that he
would keep it a secret till death.
"All right, then, the next time you
"I'm coming to Detroit to-morrow
morning," broke in the guillible in?
dividual, his face radiant with Joy.
"That so? Well, when the conduc?
tor asks you for your ticket just raise
your right arm to the shoulder, point
your thumb straight behind you and
wink the right eye slyly. He will just
pass on." The "tip" was illustrated by
the joker and the victim practiced it
all the way into the city and innumer?
able times after he arrived.
The following morning the newly
made "Mason" was one of the lirst to
board the incoming train at Dearborn.
The man with the pass saw him. The
conductor was called to one side and
"Here's the fare for that chap," said
the perpetrator of the joke; "so you
will not get into trouble over it."
When the train started the young
man occupied a seat In the forward
coach and the railroad man sat in the
roar of the same car. Presently the
door opened and the conductor shouted
The youth straightened up and pre?
pared himself. The man in charge of
the train was soon at the side of the
"Mason." He held out his hand for the
fellow's ticket and up went the latter's
right arm like a lever and he winked.
The conductor turned abruptly to a
passenger across the aisle to hide the
smile that wreathed his features. The
"Mason's" bosom swelled with satis?
faction. The man with the pass drew
his morning paper before his face and
vainly endeavored to repress a hurst
In the evening the two took the
train at the Michigan Central depot.
This time the youth took a seat near
the door and his "instructor" was at
the other end of the car. There was a
different conductor on and the railroad
man knew there would be fun.
The ticket puncher asked the young
man for his transportation as soon as
he entered the coach. Again the arm
shot over the shoulder and he winked
"I want your ticket!" rather petu?
lantly said the conductor.
The same tactics on the part of the
"Mason" were gone through again, he
believing that the man of the punch
did cot detect the "sign."
"What's the matter with you; are
you crazy?" angrily asked the train?
"I'm a Mason," answered the youth,
and the passengers nearby smiled au?
"I don't give a d?n what you are;
you'll pay your fare or get off this
The office man was in a paroxylsm
of laughter at the other end, but the
conductor's face was flushed with an?
The youth had not a cent, and he so
informed the man with the colored lan?
tern. There was a violent jerking of
the bell cord, and the train came to a
sudden stop four miles from Dearborn.
The "Mason" was assisted, none too
gently, to the ties below, and walked
the remainder of the distance to his
home, taking a short cut through the
The next evening he and the railroad
man met on the street at Dearborn.
"That was a nice job you put up on
me," sheepishly said the youth.
"Why, what was the matter?" asked
the man who had witnessed the very
amusing incident of the night before.
"The conductor put me off the train
and I had to walk four miles," he an?
"That's funny; what did you do?"
"I did as you told nie and it went all
right going in, but it wouldn't work
coming back; there was a new man
"Are you sure you made no mis?
"I did just the same both times; my
right arm and wink."
"Ah, now I see. You should have
used your left arm anil left eye coming
back. Then, again, he might not have
been a Mason."
The officer was drilling his men.
"Aim!" he shouted. "Fire!" Out
blazed the rifle blast. One poor, lone
shot followed after all the others.
"What's the matter?" cried the officer
savage'.y. "Don't you know that if
you fire as slow as that in battle the
Spanish will get you sure?"
"S-Sorry, e-c-captain," said the raw
recruit, "b-hut you s-G-see, I've an inip

Wheeler?"Yes; that's a good wheel
for you." fi. dinner?"Think so ?"

exemplary citizen, that I'm glad to
know you'll never be arrested for

NEW YORK STOCK MARKET.
NEW YORK. Jure 15.-Speculative
observers who regard that today's
reaction in the stock market has been
?lue to apprehension of the effects of
liquidation consequent upon the col?
lapse of the wheat deal were disap?
pointed today. The pressure of the
markets from that source was practi?
cally all removed by the announcement
that the enormous holdings of cash
wheat owned by the defeated wheat
speculator had been taken over by
powerful financial interests who would
be able to save it from being sacrificed
at forced sale. The course of the
wheat market very plainly indicated
the termination of this crisis, but there
was no movement to advance prices of
stocks. Apparently the leaders ot
speculation have arrived at a mutual
consent to let the market take its
course for the present without further
manipulation for a rise. The course of
prices was consequently downward in
a rather dull market. Extreme de?
clines of a point or over were regis?
tered in most of the active stocks dur?
ing the day.
