VICTIM IN SERIOUS COHOITIOH
It Will be Several Days Before She

Five Negroes Who Have Been Ar?

tlonal Details.
L-YNCHBURO. Jan. D.?Although
Sheriff Heard probably pro von tod
lynching last evening lifter having ar?
rested five negroes under suspicion
in connection with the criminal as?
sault upon a beautiful 17-year-old girl
|ivlng about a mile and a half from

A mob of about seventy-five men
gathered at Monroe yesterday after?
noon alter Sheriff Heard made the ar?
rests. Tho sheriff told the prisoners
they would have to run for their
lives. They rnn to Wlnosnp. n dis?
tance of two miles, and there got
aboard a train coming to this city.
After arriving here Sheriff Beard
learned that tho city jail was crowded
nnd took his prisoners to the Camp?

away and eighteen miles from the
scene of the crime.
The prisoners are Dudley Miller.
Lewis Miller, Peter Hudson, Eldridgc
Page and Walter Burford. They were
employed at the Southern railway
terminals at Monroe aud all of them
lived near the home of the girl who
was assaulted.
The sentiment is hitler against the

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.

Victim in Serious Condition.
Tho girl colupscd after returning

tion. Sheriff Beard fears that a
lynching will follow immediately In

MUCH MONEY FOR

Virginia's Share for the Development

WASHINGTON, Jan. !!.?As the
larger part of tho nnvigable streams
In Virginia are \i the First, Second

presented respectively by Congress?
men Jones, Mnynard and Lamb, the
big part of the appropriations to he
made by the rivers and harbors com?
mittee tills year for Virginia projects
will be distributed in those districts.
Representative Jones snld today
that he hoped to get at least $10.000
for the Rnppuhonnock and good appro?
priations for the other rivers In his
dlstriet to approximate $100.000.
"As the committee has practically
agreed on the bill," said Mr. Jones,
"it will report In a few days, and will
not. consider any other projects but
those already In hand at this session
of Congress."
Representative Lamb, of Richmond,
believes the James river will he well

President Roosevelt Das Additional
Evidence and ill Send
Message to Senate.
MAY STOP INQUIRY COMMITTEE
Assistant Attorney General . 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.
