SATURDAY EVENING. JUNE*, 1?W.
The murder ol Mri Gilbert Woodill at St. Md. M tchael'elaat Sunday nightaud tbe subsequent denuding and mutilation of ber body ia the aecond horror un? earthed duriug the paat two weeka in thia country. The auicide of Robert E. Eastman, who ia suspected of having murdered the woman, adda another char? ier to the gruesome story. While the revolting circumstances In connection ?a ith the murder of Elsie Sigel in New York were still fresh in the minda ol million a and her blood ls crying for ven ?genance, tho nude anel tattered body of a young Mid beautiful woman was found n the water virtually in our own south? ern country. The circumstances io con? nection wilh this last murder aud sui? cide may never be known, but enough is plain to act at a warning to those whose motto is dum vivimus vivamus and the Donut of Monte Christo their ideal. The unfortunate woman lott her husband three thousand miles away to mingle with the co"**?iV'ii,"leH >nc*(*eDt *? bunga? low life, while her ?*?* companion, who bas died by kit own hand, >**?? a J000* widow in the rn ri li nursing an i.? ' months-: Kl infant. I', .th the man and the woman seem to have had no higher aspirations than to pass a butleilly ex? istence and to leave no atorte unturned in order to drink in pleasure to satiety, until ever)thing with them turned lalo the apples ol Sodom. The female in the case, although ahe had been married twice, hael just entered womanhood. She was conscious of the fact tbat nature hail bestowed upon her beauty, and mental pow. r. and that her education was bu pprieir to tho' nf many other young women. Her talents, however, were mis? directs! and her career was meteoric. Ma nt old line eiemncrats throughout the slate and country have become die gustrel at the way the men sent to the Senate by their votes are chasing with tbe bounds and running with the hare in the matter nf the laiifl and say it how makes no .lilli renee which parly is in power. The House tarli! hill placed the* duties high enough in all conscience sake but the BeDate has raised the House out of its boots, many democrats (') in the Senate vieing with their republican col leagues in their endeavor for higher duties. Well could a Pennsylvania re? publican representative say to a Virginia democratic colleague a day or two agu that "the republicans wanted to revise the tarifl elownward but you democrat* wont let us." In this tarifl matter many of the democratic senators and repre? sentatives bave simply stultified them? selves. It is safe to say that if either nt! the Virginia senators had announced be? fore his election that he would vote with the republicans to raise duties if' he were sent tn Congress he would i now be enjoying the quiet of private cit? izenship. A DISPATCH from Lynchburg says: It ls understood that the Southern Railway Oompany is preparing plans for tb* erection nf a $56,000 passenger fetation in the West End, from which Us through trains will operate upon the completion of the new line through the city.

A new freight yard will also be laid ntl. These improvements will cost $126,000. Ane) Alexandria which cont.ihuted largely lo the construction of the rail nads and whichgis one of the most important points on either of the aboev named lines, has no station at all snd | n,c i-f her people elein't seem to care a rap.

Washington, June 26, Eai Iv, the leper, is to he taken to New York lor treatment. Secretary of the Treasury McVtagh today made provision for his transportation by directing the following amendment to the interstate ejaarautine regulations: "Lepers may be accepted for transporta? tion under proper supervision when en ronte to a seaport for deportation, also for transmutation to a elesignated place lor care and treatment, with the neces? sary consent ol the proper health auth? orities, provide-d proj>er sanitary pre? caution are in force with regan! to the leper and lo destination." In a special finast issued this after* noon by Cheil Moore, of the Weather ?Bureau, releif from the present hot wave i* promised.

The next well-defined barometric disturbance will cross tbe United States from west to east from June 29 to Joly 8, attended in districts esst of the Rockies by general raina." It ia believed that the Secretary of the Treaaory will before night iaaue a call upon national banks for about f 2*r?,0*J0,* OOO of government money now on de posit. There is now about $76,000,000 in national bank depositories. Scnateir Carter, of Montana, today in? troduced in tbe Senate the postal savings bank bill, which failed of passage in the la-d, Congress. Sixty-first Congress. Washington, Juoe 96. BEKATB. Responding to a resolution adopted by the Senate ou motion of Mr. Cul berson, Attorney Oeneral Wickersham today in a communication cfficidely confirmed tbe statement issued by him a few days ago announcing that be had directed thc United States attorney for the district of Massachusetts to dismiss ? he legal proceedings brought by tbe United States against the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad Company and theil minn and .MaincR.il road Company for violation of thc Hirr man anti-trust law. He admits tbat he authorized the official publication of the statement issued on the subject evhich statement assigned the fact lhat the Massachusetts legislature, the party chiefly in iuterest, had passed a law authorizing the merger of the two com? panies. It required less (ban five minutes to.lay to arrange for the expenditure of ten million dollars. The appropriation -vhs made iu a bill to pruville' for the ixensfB of the next census, and it went through without debate. Attention waa given to the proposi ? ioo of Mr. Uncoil, that agricultural . ?? """??? be placed on the free list, 'inplern. M .? , Senator H.one, ii.' #ha- Connection, paul his respects to the harvester ,U8'* First, however, he expressed ?*? opinion of Senator Aldrich anel the Siste Department for their failure to fully io form the Senate regarding tbe C.rman trade repeirt. The text eif his speech on agricultural implements was based on Mr. Aldrich's atatement either thst t^e-e implements were cemtrollee! by Ihe trusts or that ex? orbitant prices are being charged for them. Mr. Bacon's amendment to put agri? cultural implements em the free list was elefe-ateel 4ti to 26 8 -nateim Clapp and LaFollette were the only two repuMi cans to vote for it. "By artiiice and conning, and by platform jugglery the republicans hui year led tbe American people to believe that tbey intended to do just what they elie! not intend to do?lighten the bur? den ol taxation upon the consumer." This charge wss made on the ll mr ol the Senate today by f*"enalor Jell Davis, of Arkanpas, in a picturesque speech in which he became epiite personal in criti cisms of Mr. Aldrich and others of his fellow senators. "The American peo? ple," he continued, "are awakening to? day to the full realization of tbe fsct tbat tbey have been tricked and cheated out of thrir birthright, and that the premises of the republican party are ss but broken reeds and smoking flax. lt is not contended, even by its authors that this hill is a revision downward, hut it is admitted on all hands thai upon the general averages of the entire bill, it is au increase. This bill is vir? tually the product of one man, the senior senator from Rlioel.t Island, a It state, scarcely larger than one of 'lu* counties in the empire state of Texas, and he was selecteJ, ir has hean charged and not denied, sr a member of this bidy by a legislature rnosen by eleven per cent of tbe votes of Rhode Island." Presielent Taft's senatorial callers to? day predicted early disposition ed the corpeiration tax anel an adjourment within a couple of weeks or so. THE COUNTY SUPERINTENDENT The controversy in Alexandria coun? ty over the appointment of Prof. W. T. Hodges, of Danville, aa superintendent nf schools by the State Board of IC loca? tion will reach a crisis Monday night, when the board of supervisors and school trustees will hold s j nut meeting tn con? sider the matter of increasing the salary of Ihe superintendent from *$4sn tn $1,200a year. It is stated that Dr. Charles ll. Mun? son, of Arlington district, and (I orge W. Zachary, of Jefferson district, made a trip to Richmond last week anel pre? sented a resolution, adoptee! br the school trustees, .-uking tbe State Hoard of Education to appoint an "efficient" man superintendent, one who can de? vote his entire time to educational work in the county, and who is especially trained for Hie work. This resolution also recited that if snch a man be ap? pointed, the salary of superintendent will be raised fn.ni $486 to $1,206. This resolution was first adopted hy the dis? trict boards ami then by the school board. Dr. Charles B Munson slateel that no panie ular candielste was mentioned for Ihe position before the state board, and all tbe committee did was to advocate the appointment of a "trainee! man'' who could give his entire time to the job. There has been some discussion ol consolidating Fairfax and Alexandria counties into a school district under one superintendent, and it was against this that many Alexaudria eountiana kicked. There is some doubt whether the supervisors and irust?>es will increase the superintendent's salary without discuss? ion. Destructive Fire. Trenton, N. J. June 26.?Fire broke ont at 'I o'clock this morning in the plant of the Trenton Rubber Company, just outside this eily, and owint to the lack ol water the entire plant is probably doomed.

A double mystery having to do with tbe origin of With May Thcmpsom Wood ill, whose uude and mutilated body was fished Irom tbe creek near McDaniel* Weelnesilay afternoon, and with the real history of Robert Emmet Eastman, ber slayer, the mysterious stock broker and man of the world, known ouly ' two principals whose lips are sealed in death, was the real cause of the shock? ing tragedy lhat has stirred Talbot c NM* ty aud baa spread over twei continent*, where Mr.. Woo lill was known a< a! singer and a woman of attainments. A search of tbe bungalow where the mul? der was committed, is being made (oday, and bit by bit letters aud scraps of evi? dence that lead to Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego io California; New York city, Bonton, Washington, Baltimore, Minneapolis aud even to Ber? lin and Paris, are being gathered to? gether by the inquisitors who are trying to find the real motive behind the crime. Tbe mute testimony of letters, which the murderer failed to destroy in his in? sane aod bunglesome effort to bide tbe body, and stories told the jury by per? sons who knew Mri. Woodill point to? day to the conclusion that Eastman knew who Mrs. Woodill was and tbat Mra. Woodill knew who Eastman was. Detectives learned today tbat Eaat* man was acepjainted with the morel, reel woman even before she went to New York where she met Woodill and before Eastman became known in Wal! street as a stock broker. Eastman knew something about Mrs. Woodill, declare the officers who bave boco gathering to .-ether the scraps of evidence today, and Mrs. Woodill knew something stoat Eastman. Tbis something that East? man knew was the parentage nf the fas? cinating beauly, wbo capture il the atten? tion ot men prominent in public life and gaiuee! Inr entre to Ito White House, and the best homes io Baltimore and Wa<liii>gion. That Mrs, WoimIiIi knew tha' Ivi-etinaii was a fugitive from I i-iie e in New York was also evident. Every bit ol new light shed on tho mys? terious case toelay lends to the conclu? sion that the lives of the two, which were blotted out In such a violent man? ner, had been linkel for years, perhaps from infancy. Etetman's mysterious sia i iniiits to Vinnie Bradcorae, his wife, lu New York, thal hu was going away to make a foitune, am interpreted t<> mean that he was going away to HS if he could make capital ol tbat he knew ol ,M is. Wt " bil's mysti-riuiis life, think i ?" that her wealth snd social posiUca would Bato H easy for him to secure in .ney from her, as the price ol his silence. Fn.ni what cnn be learned, today, Eastman lia I followed Mrs, Woodill Irom Boston to New York anel across tho Atlantic and back, again, and then lo California, after she met and -Turriell Woodill, a year anel a half ago.

The letter leila Eastman's story of the tragedy. According to E-tat man, Ihe murder occurred in the bunga? low. Th3te were six present, two men and two women from Annapolis, bo sides Eastman and Mrs. Woodill. Mrs. Woodill had flirted with Ito rs cort of one of the Annapolis women, says Eastman, and was lying on a bed with him, when Ihe jealous woman hit them both on the heal with a cbampage bottle.

Tbe Murder of t-lsle "*igel New York, June M -Thal the kill? ing ol Elsie. Sigd in Ito Oriental roeim of Leon Ling was not a premeiliated erinn* hut was the result ol a sudden jealous rage, is the police theory fed lowing the Ihttest version ol thn killing given by Chung Sin, the Chinese who bar been under the third degree since his arrest three dava ago, anel who baa told at least four different stories. Chong now contends tbat he heard I.con up? braid Ihe girl for her friendship fer Chu Cain, his rival, and that Elsie replied that Cbu (iain was the better man. Thereupon says Chung the two "make fight," and he wea called shortly after? wards to see the dead body of the girl on the heel. Tbat Chung's story ia a network of lb**, thp polite have no doubt Sing H. Le*e, a wealthy Chinese of New York, tame forward toelay with a s at? ment that absolutely contradicts Chung's story that he was awakened from his sleep by Leon's quarrel with tbe girl. Sing Lee says t1 at he called on Leon the morning of June 9 at ten o'clock on beisineis, and that there waa no one ? either in Leon's room on in lhat nf Ohnng. This is sbont the lime that j Chung claims Hie girl was killed. The importance of Chu Cain in the j case, in the mind of the police, was j shown yeaterday, when Chu waa pickeel I up by a policeman when he tried to (leave the city. Chu said he wanted to go to Atlantic City to a sommer school, I but the police informed him thai be had better stay in New Yoik. Driven Insane by Heat.

St. Petersburg, Jane 2<i.?It was officially admited by tie health auth? orities here today that the I'aily increase in cholera cases in 2b per cent. The mortality rale is also increasing, and it is feared that 50 per cent of the cases will soon prove fa'al. A general order has been issued for the boiling of all drinking water, but ihe authorities are unablo to enforce tbe order, owing tc the inefficieny of tue police department, the wideeprtal nature of the disease and the super-ti tiona of the people, many of whom be lieve it is useless lo guard against tho elisra-te, which they consider divinely io,tamed. The exoelus of ihe better class of peo? ple to escape the threatened scourge is eiaily becoming greater. The situation is already hardfor the local authorities to handle. They say that unless tbe ma? chinery of the national government is at once employed, Ihe capital will be ravaged hy the worst cholera plague in the world's history. Explosion of Powder.

Two ol the police theories in regard to the murder of Elsie Sigr I were over? turned yesterdsy in New York. A wit? ness was found, as yet unknown to tbe police*, who th lin,tidy establishes the fact that Leon's room was visited more than twer.ty-feuir toals alter the crime was committed ami before it was made known lo ths polios. His testimony alieo proves thal the crime took place between lo s. m. and ti p, m. and that Chong Sin couldn't have been asleep in his room. The theory that the murder was pre meditated was upset by Chung Sin, who waa pot on tbe grill again at the House of Detention and told of the last word. of Elsie a gibe at Leon. I/8on bad been upbraiding ber for receiving the attentions nf Chu Cain, wherenpon Elsie retorted that Chu was tho better mao. l.e'on Haring int i a sudden while heat ni rage, attacked the girl savagely, over? came her before she could cry out and killed her.
