Over Two Hundred and Forty of the Delegates to the Norfolk Con
yention Interviewed by The Times,
Majority, However, Think That Ekher the Abridged or the Present
Electorate Should Have the Opportunity of Voting to
Accept or Reject the Constitution*
Those Who Would Have the Organic Law Proclaimed Argue That It Would
Be Folly to Submit it to Those Who Would Be Disfranchised by Its
Provision— Many Contend That the Democratic Party is
Morally Bound to Submit it to Whole People.
In favor of proclaiming the new Constitution when agreed
upon 108
In favor of submitting the Constitution to the abridged
electorate 71
In favor of submitting the Constitution to the present
electorate 59
In doubt as to what course should be pursued. 5
Total number of delegates to the State Democratic Conven
tion heard from 243
In view of the widespread interest manifested by the people of Virginia in the matter of whether the
Constitution of the State now being framed should be proclaimed by the convention or submitted to the
abridged or to the unabridged electorate for approval or rejection, The Times has undertaken to ascertain
the views of all the delegates elected to the State Democratic Convention recently held at Norfolk.
Two hundred and thirty have been heard from. More favor proclaiming: the Constitution than either
of the two other propositions. But those who would have the organic law pioclaimed have not a majority
over those who would submit it to tiie abridged or to the unabridged electorate.
Only five delegates heard from are in doubt as to what should be done.
The following is a copy of the letter sent out by The Times:
, August 22, 1901.
Dear Sir: —
"In view of the Rre.it interest felt throughout the State in the new Constitution now being framed, and especially as to what
method shall be adopted for putting it into effect as the organic law of the State, The Times has undertaken in a direct, practical
way to ascertain what the sentiment of the people is. We will therefore greatly appreciate the courtesy if you, as one of the repre
sentative members of the Democratic party in your county, will indicate en the enclosed blank which of these three propositions
you favor:
"First — That the convention proclaim the Constitution.
"Second— That the Constitution be submitted to those who will be entitled under its provisions to vote.
"Third — That the Constitution be submitted to all now entitled to vote.
-We will thank you very much if you will favor us with an immediate reply, plainly indicating your position, with any
remarks you may think proper to make. Yours truly, THE TIMES.
The basis of representation adopted by the State Committee provided for a convention of 1467 dele
gates. The fact that many counties and towns elected double delegations, giving each member a half vote
greatly swelied the number; and in addition to this there were contesting delegations in several instances.
The Times has endeavored to secure as complete a roll as it was possible to obtain and has sent copies of
the letter above to about 2, 100 Democrats, it was not possible to get the correct postoffice address in
every instance, but this defect has been remedied as far as possible. The replies will be published as fast
as the} are received. The list printed contains all that came to hand up to 8 o'clock last night.
The following delegates express themselves as in favor of proclaim

Strike Can Be Settled Only by Men Returning
to Work.
(By Associated Fra*i.)
NEW YORK, Aug;. 27.— N0 overtures for
peaco have come to the United States
Steel Corporation from the strikers
through any of thfl intermediaries
named in the Pittsburg dispatches, and it
jyas stated at the office of the company
to-day that none was expected. J. Pter
pont Morgan returned to the city to
day, but it was said that his return had
nothing to do with the steel strike or
its settlement. An official of the United
States Steel Corporation mad.j the fol
lowing statement:
■'TlK' reports that there are negotiations
for a settlement of the steel strike in pro
gress are erroneous. The United States
Stct! Corporation hag "received no pro
posals for the settlement, and has niade
none. Many of our men are returning to
work and many others are desirous of re
suming their places. The strike can only
Vie settled by the return of the men to
their places."

Has Difficulty With Watchman Hicks
Over Dog Fight—Danger
ously Wounded.
William P. Berry, the proprietor of two
saloons, at .No. IT" 1 East Broad and N<>.
rjl South First, and who resides -it the
termer place, was shot four times, prob
ably fatally, .it tl o'clock last night on
South Ninth Street, between Cary and
Byrd, by Watchman Water D. Hicks, of
the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway, who
resides ;it No. 181S Carrington Street.
The trouble between the two men arose
ov.-T a small dog light between Berry's
white terrier and a cur which Berry
tnought the watchman set "ii hi? <!"^.
Berry was driving in a jumper with -i
young man named John Lamb, a bridge
builder, who would not make any state
nn :it concerning th. affair l;ist night.
The only other witness of the trouble w.ts
Conductor \V. H. Newton, who was in
charge of the freight train being mmle
up on the van!. Newton's statement Is
to the effect that Hicks shot Berry In self
defense after the latter-had knocked him
clown with it brick and was on him beat
ing him. Berry, while in no 'condition to
make a statement, managed to st,iU- ih;tt
his injuries were not dv. to l.imb and
that Hick- had kick< d bis dog.
Berry and Lamb were driving up Ninth
Street from the Free Bridge In a one
horse jumper. Berry's white terrier was
running behind th< vi licte. Near Ninth
and Byrd a car dog ran out at Berry's
(1 gr and there was i smalt-sized running
dog fight. Berry thought flicks, who was
standing on the easi side of Ninth Street,
near th^ watchman's house, set the cur
on his dog. and s oke to him. from the
vehicle very exclti lly Words passed be
tween th- rn- p. In rapid flow and in a min
ute or two, aci rding to Conductor New
ton's statement. Berry was out of the
vehicle and making tor the watchman.
Tho latter was struck over the head with
a hri"k. an ugi.v wound being made, and
was knocked down between the rails ot th-
Perkins side-tra It and just beside the
edge r>f the street Here, from the torn
up condition :" the ground, there must
have been quite a struggle, as of two rrwn
on th^ ground. This ended by Hicks
shooting Berry four times, probably fa
taHy. in the chest and abdomen.
B^rry with Lamb's assistance was nbte
to get back in thi* vehicle. They drove
to Polk Miller's, but found it clos>-ii.
Here they met Officer Bradley, who put
Hick's under arrest and sent him to the
station house. where his heat! was dressi r
by Dr. Harrison, of the ambulance. He
has a wife and four children, and has
h.-r-n a trusted employe of the Chesapeake
and Ohio for several years.
Berry nr..l Limb at once drove to
Berry's home at Seventeenth and Broad
v.-h^ro h* was gotten up t.-> a second-story
i-nnm. I.arnb, it seems, slipped away from
th** gathering crowd nnd a while iai-~r
was picked up by the police in a saloon
at Franklin nnd Locust Alley and taken
to thf First Station.
Doctors' Labenburg and Parker were
poor, in attendance upon th" wounded
man. and Dr. Harrison, of the ambulance,
and a few minutes laror Dr. Hugh Tay
lor iVn examination showed four wound?
of a large calibre pistol, three entering
the chest and one the abdomen. On»
wound was just over the heart, one just
over the navel and two to the left of the
navel. One of the latter entering f'.-
abdomen was regarded by the doctors
as the most dangerous. After a consul
tation it was decided^to remove the
wounded man to the Virginia Hospil il,
where the wounds were thoroughly ex
amined and probed at about 2:30 o'clock
this n;r.rr:i;.ff. At thai hour the mm
was still living, but the chances were
largely against his recovery.
Berry is a nwn f.bout forty years "f
age, anil h:is a wife and rive children.
Tlis brother and mother live in Rich
mond, ilu- latter on China Street. For
some ct n- Berry was employed at the
City tlatl in the basement. Later and
for a \<t'\S time he- UVed and ran a bar

Seventeenth and Brosd, he had been
running t'crn* six months.
