Montgomery, February 12.—(Special.)— 1
The capital is closed today out of re
spect to the memory of Chief Justice
Thomas N. McClellan, who died last Sat
urday, and was burled this afternoon at
his home in Athens. The big doors at the
front are barred and streamers of black
are entwined about all three of the veran
das. The governor is out of the city, hav
ing left for New York last night, and
several of the heads of departments are
at Athens for the funeral. Some of the
employes are at work catching up with
the rush of three days' correspondence,
but many are not at their desks at all.
There are, however, two subjects of
conversation that find many following
them up in the state house and about the
city today, namely the lynching at Gads
den Saturday night and the possible suc
cessor to the late Chief Justice McClel
lan on the bench. Both are gossiped about
generally, and while there can be no
definiteness about either one of the out
comes, there may be gatherd much that
is interesting in what has been and iR be
ing said. Especially is this so of the
lynching. It is safe to say that few' men
see anything in the world to excuse the
wanton act of the mob in this instance.
They point out that the negro who was
hanged was not even under indictment,
much less conviction, and that the chances
are an innocent, man has been sent to Ills
Look for Justice.
There is a well defined approval of the
assertion of the governor that every force
and power of the state will be called into
play to bring the lynchers to justice. Of
ficials agree that It ought not to he hard
to get evidence enough to indict those
who took part in the work of the mob.
•specially as it is understood here that
the best people In the county feel out
raged over tthe lawless act. It is also
known that Sheriff Chandler 1 a very
active and vigorous officer, and that he
will leave no stone unturned to bring
about punishment of the guilty. He was
not able to discover any of the men who
•JMr* in the party, but it is thought here
that the disposition of the general run of
people to talk it will not take long to se
cure good working clues.
Though no such thing has been dis
cussed In this case. It Is not at all im
probable that detectives will he sent into
the county to secure evidence. This was
projected some time ago. hut the plan
has never been put into execution here
tofore. However, the governor Is very
much in earnest and it is safe guessing
that he will do everything possible to |
bring about the punishment of the guilty. 1
Talk of the succession to the supreme
court bench runs largely to Associate
Justice John R. Tyson for the chief jus
ticeship to succeed the late Chief Justice
McClellan, with some Intimation that the
governor will quite likely go out of the
county for a man to take his place. It
is thought now that If Tyson is named.
A. IT. Merrill of Eufaula. will be the
associate. There Is also much talk of S.
D. Weakley of Birmingham, getting the
chief Justiceship. Many believe that If
Tyson is appointed A. D. Sayre, now
judge of the city court of Montgomery,
will supceeed him. though others seem
to think t'hat if one Montgomery man is
chosen there will be no more. An Impres
sion also prevails that if Sayre should
be named, W. IT. Thomas, now judge
of the criminal branch, would be given
his place and Solicitor S. H. Dent made
criminal judge.
And so the story goes along. Objec
tions are offered pro and con to all the
applicants save possibly Judge Tyson,
who seems to play favorite in the spec
ulation. Merrill is a resident of the 'home
town of the governor. Weakley is a. law
partner of the brother-in-law’ of the gov
ernor. the promotion of Tyson would
arouse objection to taking another man
from Montgomery county, and many con
tend that to commence shoving up along
the Judicial line in Montgomery would be
too much like trying to produce a multi
tude of vacHneies.
Haralson Talks.
Others think that possibly the ques
tion will be settled by the appointment
of Justice Haralson to the post, as he is
the oldest man on the bench, and not a
few think that in any shuffle of the ju
dicial cards H. 8. ID. Mallory of Selma,
chairman of the state democratic commit
tee. would be seriously considered for
With all the talk, however, nothing will
be done for a couple of weeks yet. The
governor will not get hack before Sat
urday and then he will have to go into
the case fully before making up his mind
what to do. There will be so many good
men urged that It Is not going to be an
easy task to make a selection. While
those who are appointed will have to
run again this fall, it Is regarded that
even so short a time in the position will
be a great advantage. Without any kind
of prejudice to any man or following it is
nothing but the truth to say that in Mont
gomery more people think that Tyson
will be promoted and Sayre given his
place than expect any other outcome of
the situation. Sayre was given a large

Mr. Hepburn of Iowa took the floor in
favor of the bill, after an attempt had
been made to extend the time of debate
during which it was stated many gentle
men wanted to speak. Mr. Payne refused
such extension. Mr. Hepburn declared
the situation which the bill sought to
remedy a serious and disgraceful one. It
was impossible to And an adequate pun

beaten their wives In the District. He
said he knew the bill was not going to

with which the attempt to administer
proper punishment had been received.
Mr. Payne moved that the bill be laid
on the tabic. A vote by roll call was
ordered on his motion which was carried
by a vote of 155 to 55, thus defeating the
Urgent Deficiency Bill.
The urgent deAciency bill was sent to
conference with Messrs. Dlttaur, Towney

Havana, February 12.—Victor Demogeot, \
the winner at Ormond, Fla., of the title \
of the world's speed king, earned another
triumph today by winning the Cuban cup
in the second international road race.
The victory was gained in the same ma
chine, which, driven by Hemery,
won the two great road events of last
year, namely the Ardennese Circuit In
France and the Vanderbilt cup on Long
Island. It was the lightest machine in
today’s race, being only eighty-horse
power, the others being respectively nine
ty and one hundred and ten. Although
two competitors in today’s main race
were either stopped by accident or failed
to finish within the time limit, Demogeot s
great speed was maintained throughout,
resulting In maintaining the reputation
of the Cuban road as being among the
world’s fastest. Despite the drawbacks
of three controls, sharp corners in the
town of Marianao and close crowding by
the excited populace at the curving
points, he made the first half at an aver
age of 61 4-5 miles an hour. The average
miles per hour for the entire 217V£ miles
was 59.77, which is within 1 3-4 miles of
the Vanderbilt cup race average.
Lancia, as usual, made the most sensa
tional speed of the day, going, it was
claimed, upwards of seventy miles an
hour, so fast that his riding partner,
Battesta, was thrown out at the curve
near Artemisia, and suffered a fractured
arm. Lancia then quit the race and con
veyed a physician to the aid of the In
jured man.
Cederino’s machine was overturned in
the same vicinity on the first lap. Cede
rino, who was injured Internally, was
conveyed to the city tonight, where it is
reported he is recovering. His machinist
was also hurt.
Kernim, me unvci ui .•.
car which returned to the starting point
near Camp Columbia, failed to complete
the round trip within the time limit. For
the second half of the race. Demogeot’s
competitors were three local gasoline
racers. Demogeot said he would not need
to push matters. However, he lost sever
al minutes at the start, and thereafter
drove at a speed which enabled him to
pass the only one of his local competitors
who had gotten ahead of him before the
second village was out of sight.
Throughout the remainder of the last j
half of the journey. Demogeot’s speed
nearly equalled that of the first half. The i
faet that Charlie Harragh, an American,
rode with Demogeot. heightened the local
interest, and Intensified the roar of wel
come which greeted him when the win
ning car rounding the curve and rushing
at top speed, passed a half a mile of
cheering people in the boxes and on the
roadside stands.
The winner of the minor race which
was only half the distance of the main
event, was Des Sanssols, a Frenchman
who drove a thirty horse power automo
bile over the 10**4 miles In 12 minutes
slower time than Demogeot. excluding
however. Demogeot’s delay at the start.
Wes Sanssols beat Burke, his n**rest
competitor, by nearly 10 minutes. Blick.
the other contestant, finished half an
hour later. Both the winning Frenchmen
were escorted before the grandstand near
the box of President Palma and his fam
ily and showered with congratulations.

sore disappointment today when the
touted Hollowmas was defeated by St.
Valentine in the handicap at the Fair

Almost immediately Midshipman Arthur
Frank, cadet commander of the brigade,
called for three cheers for “those about to
leave, us.” and the youths who have more
years at the institution before them gave
the cheers with a will. This was replied
to by the graduates, who gave three
cheers for “those we leave behind us.”
Commander T. G. Dewey of the depart
ment of ordnance and gunnery, who com
manded the brigade, then called for three
cheers for the Secretary of the Navy.
The official party then left the armory
and went at once to the home of Superin

served. Secretary Bonaparte returned to
Baltimore in the afternoon.
