Edward Travers in Jail Suspected
of Crime.
DEATH INSTANTANEOUS.
Aged Resident ol First Want Meets
Death By Iteing Hurled From Porch.
Body Removed to Wheatley's Ifnder
taking Establishment. Inquest To
morrow
-Lying in front of her squallid resi
dence. near the corner of Washington
and Franklin streets, her matted white
locks coveriug her face, Mary Galla
horue, one of the well-known charac
ters of Alexandria, a fortune-teller by
profession was found dead at half past
two o'clock this after neon and Edward
Travers, a white man forty years old is
locked up in the station house on sus
picion of being responsible for the
death of the old womnn.
Aunt Mary," as she was commonly
called by the colored residents of the
city, from whom ? she has beguiled
many a dime for love potions and
charms during the past twenty-live
years, met her death at half past two
(this afternoon.
There were two eye-witnesses to the
crime, Charles Pullman, of Fairfax
county, and a small colored boy,
Adrian Woodlawn, about nine years
old.
According to the testimony of the
boy he saw the woman and the mau
struggling on the small porch in front
of the house. Then, according to his
story,the man kicked the old woman in
the side and threw her across the porch.
She fell with her head hanging over the
edge of the porch when he went over
to where she was and shoved her to the
ground a distance of four feet
Without looking at her body, it is
said, he went, into the house and
brought out a chair and sat down,
muttering to himself. James Nelson,
who is a resident of that section of the
[town, went across the street and whe"
! be found out that the woman .vis dead
telephoned for the police. Travers
was arrested by Acting Lieutenant
Roberts and Officer Roland.
Coroner Moon* rearbed the scene
shortly after three o'clock and after
making a superficial examination of
the body ordered the remains removed
to Wheatley's undeitaking establish
ment where an inquest will be held
(tomorrow morning at ten o'clock.
Travers, upon being placed in a cell
at the station house soon fell asleep.
Upon being aroused later he denied
having assaulted the dead woman, and
said he lodged at her house last night.
This afternoon he saw her lying inside
her house near the door alul supposed
she was asleep.
He says he was later told by James
Nelson that Airs. Callahornc was dead.
Travers said he then went to John
Lawler's saloon and requested him to
notify the station house by telephone.
It is said that Travers did not lodge
in the dead woman's house last night,
but slept in a field nearby. Passeisby
allege that they saw him lying in a
pool of water early this morning.
SNAKE STORIES.
Two remarkable snake stories, vouch
ed for by gentlemen of veracity, come
from Hat Rock, Rockingham county,
\a. A. C. Campbell killed an un
usually large Farter snake in his potato
patch. In its stomach he found ill
young snakes of three varities. There
were two dozen black snakes, a dozen
gaiter snakes and about the same
uumber of spotted snakes. It is pre
sumed that the cannibal snake went on
a rampage through the neighborhood,
killing mother snakes and swallowing
the children in their families. \\ L
Weatherholz, of the same neighbor
hood. killed a hugh black snake and,
surprised at the dimensions of the
reptile, cut it open. Within he found
10 partridgo eggs and a full-grown
bird of the yellow-hammer species.
A blacksnake, nearly seven feet iong,
Rave Policeman Beiser a fierce battle
yesterday morning in Cincinnati, when
Beiser, thinking that it/was an um
brella, attomptcd to pick up the rep
tile Beiser was making his rounds
and boarded the Sedameville "owl" car
to go down the road to Anderson's
terry. \\ hen the car stopped at Steiner
avenue the officer, who was standing
near the motonuan, noticed a black
object lying in the road. Thinking
it wan an umbrella, the officer started
to pick it up. His hand had hardly
closed over the .->bject when it showed
sigus of life. In a flash a big black
snake had coiled itself around his lee.
He kicked himself free and struck at
the reptile with his club. The snake
came back. Beiser struck at it re
peatedly, but it was not dispatched
until the car crew went to his aid with a
switch iron.
Two Men Killed in a Collision.

Flat Denial that a Witness from
York, Pa., is to Appear in Inter
ests of Accused.
Richmond, Va., Aug 4.?Believing
that Henry Clay Beattie, jr., charged
with the murder of his wife, will plead
insauity when put on trial, counsel for
the commonwealth today held an ex
tended conference to determine the ad
visability cf having alienists study l.he
young husband during his detention in
Richmond jail.
No decisiou was definitely reached,
hut it was considered probable that the
prosecution would secure two alienists
to examine Beattie within the next
few weeks.
Counsel for the accused man has not
yet intimated exactly what its line of
defense will be.
Richmond, Va., Aug. 4.?Flat denial
of the repoit that counsel fur Henry
Clay Beattie, jr., have found a witness
at York, Pa., who would testify that!
Beattie and his wife were laughing and !
chatting together in their automobile j
only a few moments before Mrs. Beattie
was killed, was made here today. Coun
sel on both sides say that they are now
practically ready for the trial. With
the exception of Paul Beattie, cousin of
the accused man, the three prisoners in
Richmond jail are standing confine
ment well. Paul is apparently on the
verge of a nervous breakdown.
A report that the Virginia militia
would be railed into service to main
tain a guard around the Chesterfield
Courthouse during the trial, was not
generally credited hero today. Guard
officials refused to discuss the matter,
and county officers said that if a
guard were necessary, they had no
doubt but that order could lie preserved
by extra deputies.
Three Men Have Narrow Escape
From Serious Injury While
Laying Bricks.
Shortly before two o'clock this after
noon a scaffold on which Thomas
Tebel, and Edward Lawler white, and
Clarence Millei, colored, were at work
at the site of the old l'ioner-r Mills,
where is being erertrd the new plant of
the Emerson Engine Companj', col-1
lapsed, hurling the Irio on a pile of
bricks about fifty feet below. For
tunately all three escaped serious
injury, although, when tin* facts
in the case art; considered, it
seems miraculous that they were not
crippled or killed. When the scaffold
collapsed the three men with the plank
ing and scantling of the scaffold passed
through two other scaffolds, carrying
them down with a crash.
The men were picked up by other
workmen who witnessed the accident
and l>r. W. A. Warfield was summon
ed. Tebel ard Lawler escaped with
bruises anil scratches, but Miller seem
ed to be suffering from interna! injury,
and he was sent to his home, 421
north Pitt street. Tebel resides at 121
St. Asaph street and Lawler at 111
north Payne street.

1 ESTER DAY'S RAIN.
How often do we hear expressions
from another iu our every day wall; of
the weather, but I don't think it has
ever in our town been on every bod) s
lips as the last week, for we all real
ized that our reservoir was very low and
only a downpour of rain would save
our health and possibly our lives?in
fact when the beautiful sun shone so
glorious yesterday morning, which is
usually a very welcome sight, it cast a
sadness over everybody, for we had ex
pected the rain. But yesterday afternoon
when this beautiful rain came down so
tine I don't believe there was a m?n,
woman or child who did not realize
what it meant to them and I believe
uttered a silent prayer?truly none
moie appropriate than to praise God
from whom all blessings llow.

Mlia QUESTION j
IS STILL UNSETTLED,
Negotiations Said to be at a Stand
still?Germany's Terms Im
possible.
Berlin, Aug. 4.?The optimism and
confidence in London th.it Germany
and France have in principle, at least,
reached an understanding in the Mo
roccan question, is not reflected today
by the German press. On the con
trary. a strong pessimistic tone prevails.
The National Gazette, usually in
close touch with diplomatic circles,
says that the negotiations between For
eign Secretary Kinderlen-Waechter and
Ambassador Jules Cambon have come
to an actual standstill. Intimation of
a ministerial crisis is found by some in
the paper's statement, thai the foreign
secretary will "sacrifice himself rather
than sacrifice the interests of the na
tion."
With one exception, the leading
papers oppose the suggestion jjthat
tin; Moroccan question be re
ferred to a conference of I lie powers.
The conservative Post ami the influen
tial Vossische Zeitung believe that the
people should bo prepared for a com
plete failure of the negotiations which,
so far, have not progressed a single
stop.
London, Aug. 4.?No confirmation
could be had today in semi-ollicial or
official circles of the repoit that Ger
many anil France have agreed in
principle upon a settlement in I lie
Moroccan controversy. The slock
market was steady and this wan taken "

T I" ALF the burden of the
^ ^ hot day is removed by
drinking a healthful, cooling
drink, such as Clicquot
(Kleek-o) Club Ginger Ale.
The ginger, the clash of lemon and the car
bonic gas usee! in Clicquot Club are all beneficial '
to digestion; and the ginger is combined in a
manner that entirely eliminates astringency. . v
The superior quality water and ingredients \
makes Clicquot Club unusually good; and our
method of combining, carbonating and steriliz
ing makes it distinctly superior.
Other CLICQUOT CLUB Beverages:
. Birch Beer C^oot Beer Sarsaparilla
