The prisoners are Dudley Miller. Lewis Miller, Peter Hudson, Eldridgc Page and Walter Burford.

The sentiment is hitler against the fiend, and it is feared that he will not he allowed to live long enough to stand trial In case he is caught und Identified by his victim. Negro Knew She Was Alone. It appears that the parents of the girl were away at the time of the assault and that the negro went to tTTe house nnd asked for something to ent. He followed her into tho kitchen. She then realized that the negro Intended her harm and culled her brother's name, hoping to fright? en tho negro and cause him to flee. The nogro told her that he knew she was alone, and pointed u revol ver toward her, at the same time slapping his hand over her month. For a limited time we will make our Patent Rim Teeth.

Purdy During His Investigation nt Browns? ville, Tex., Has Unearthed Facts Which Prove Beyond Doubt That the Negroes Shot Up the Town. WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 9.? President Roosevelt will within a few days send another message to Con? gress, Riving further reasons for his order discharging the .battalion of ne? gro troops concerned In the Browns? ville affray. This message will prob? ably reach Congress next Monday. It will be very plain and pointed. If the Senate has by that time pass, ed a resolution for an investigation by the Committee on Military Affairs It will In all probability discover when the message Is received that* tho ne? cessity for an Inquiry to ascertain <???? facts has ceused to exist. This will he because the President will send with his message the affidavits obi lected by Assistant Attorney General Purdy and others, which, it is believ? ed, will additionally justify his course In discharging the negroes. The defence made by the Constitu? tional Association, whicn has taken up (lie fight, for the dismissed troops, was that the negroes wore the vic? tims of a conspiracy; that there was no evidence that they had done the shcoting nt all; that, on the other hand, there was ground for the be? lief that the affray was conducted bv white men blackened and wearing cast-off uniforms of the Twenty-fifth; that clips previously holding army cartridges had boon picked up on the rifle range, and scattered about the town, to lend to the Impression that Its rifles had been used; that there could be no warrant for dismissing the troops until It was established that some of the battalion had fired the shots. New Points Discovered. This question the President will meet in the Investigation which has been conducted by Assistant Attorney General Purdy. These facts have thus fur been shown by the affida? vits that have been received: ? That the first shots on the town were fired from the barracks, and that then a party of negro troops left the barracks and entered the town firing. That these were negro troops and not whitemen with blackened faces because citizens were close to them, heard their talk, and noticed their faces. That in one instance one of tho39 firing was recognized ns a negro sol? dier who had consulted with the wit? ness as to hiring a room. That bullets fired on the night of August 13 have been recovered, and these are missiles such us can only be used In the army rifle used by the Twenty-fifth Infantry, the size of the bullet, the marks of the rlBlng and other points showing that only from the arms of the battalion could these shots have come. Mr. Purdy has been very busily em? ployed in taking evidence in and around Brownsville, and It Is said that when he completes his task it will be found that he has left very little for the Senate committee to do. The administration regards the case made out by the Inspector Ger.eral as very complete, and while it was ready before to go to the public on it, it supplies this additional testi? mony because of the criticism of Sen? ators who declared that the evidence was not In such shape as would have been acceptable In a court of law.
