Who Did the Shooting.
!%)rt Payne, August 1 .— (Special.)—On
Monday night a shooting affray in which
several negroes took part occurred In

some time has been paying too much
attention to Rcuie Sparks, a negro woman
who lives here. Hugh Chitwood, another
negro man, became jealous of the atten
tion paid the woman by the other and
went to the church where tlie negroes
were holding a revival meeting. Reuir
Sparks was talking to the man, and as
inon aa Hugh saw them he began shoot
ing. Several shots were fired but only
one took effect and it lodged In the manjs
backbone. No little excitement was ere
ated by the shooting, as there was quite
a large crowd present at church.
The sheriff was notified immediately and
went to arrest him, but was too late, for
Hugh Chitwood and the woman had left
for parts unknown. A search for them
has been made but they cannot be found
The wounded negro is seriously hurt ami
may not live, It is said he will be taken
to Birmingham and there have an opera
tion performed which may save his life.
Hugh Chitwood lias a wife and several
children and has lived here all of his life

New Orleans, August 1.—Additional com
plaints about alleged 111 treatment of
Americans on the Isle of Pines were re
ceived here today upoh the landing of
J. A. Miller and J. J. Symes, two Amer
ican residents of the island. The fact that
they are bearers of messages to Senator
John T. Morgan of Alabama concerning
the treatment of Miss Millie Brown dur
ing her recent imprisonment on the Isle
of Pines has already been announced.
They are also bearers of a statement
by William Taylor an American resident
of the Isle of Pines, who says that re
cently he stationed his tw'o small sons
in Ills watermelon patch to guard it
against thieves. The boys fired a rifle in
the air when three natives entered the
patch, and Mr. Taylor appeared with a
club and drove them out. fror this he
was arrested, being kept in jail four days
before given a hearing.
The judge who heard the charges im
mediately set Taylor free but a few days
later he was re-arrested and imprisoned
again for four hours. He was then In
formed that the three natives whom he
accused of having entered the melon
patch, "had successfully proven" that
Taylor held them up and attempted to
rob them on the occasion in question.
Cash bail of $300 was furnished by Tay
lor's friends to secure his release and at
present he is awaiting trial next autumn.
Mr. Symes said that in another case
$600 cash ball had been furnished by
Americans three years ago and that this
case had not been tried yet. He said
that two weeks ago, W. H. Van Voorhes,
an American who had built a half-ton sail
boat had been informed by the Cuban
authorities after the boat's completion
that he would not be allowed to use It.

ord in the history of the union station.

Johannesburg, August 1.,—The proposals
of the British government for the estab
lishment of a constitutional government In
the Transvaal as announced in the house
of commons yesterday were received with
a feeling of relief and were welcomed as
being reasonably democratic. It Is anti

best of it. The margin between Britons
and Boers is so narrow that it Is impos
sible to forecast who will obtain the ma
jority in the first legislature.

Fine Prospect
for Cox College
The new management of Cox College
and Conservatory, of College Park, Ga.,
Is very much pleased with the prospect
that the capacity of this well known
institution for the higher education of
women will be taxed when the doors
are opened, on the eleventh of Septem
ber, for the beginning of the sixty
lourth session, and that the college
will have one of the best years in Its
history. A considerable sum is being
spent in improvements this summer,
and everything is being put In readi
ness for the opening day. No college
in the South has a nobler prestige than
this institution has. It enjoys a wide
reputation for high standards, superior
advantages and thorough Instruction,
which has brought to it a large and
choice patronage.
Buffalo, N. Y., August 1.—There was a
large attendance at today's session of
the American Federation of Catholic so
cieties. The Volksvercin plan, govern
ing the membership, was adopted. The
constituted was changed so that here
after societies, parish Institutes and such
individuals as apply to the federation for
literature shall be eligible for membership.
A resolution deploring the anArchistic
tendencies of sensational newspapers, but
commending those papers which aim at
circulating the truth and commanding the
Catholic press was* adopted.
The federation recommended the estab
lishing of a Catholic Young Men’s Union,
and commended the misslohs to non
Catholics. A resolution was also adopted
defining the position of the federation on
the question of divorce.
The resolution states that as Catholics
the delegates are opposed to all forms of
Absoulte divorce. It favors a limited di
vorce of separation in extreme cases; ex
presses the duty of Catholics to try to
educate those without church to the doc
trine that under no circumstances should
parties to a lawful marriage be allowed
to marry within the life-time of either,
expresses gratification at the signs of an
aroused sentiment upon the subject^ halls
as an encouraging sign the convening
of a divorce congress to consider divorce
legislation, commends the efforts of the
legislature and the governor of Penn
sylvania at whose instance the congress
was held, of the President of the United
States, whose message to Congress on
the subject had such far-reaching effect,
and to the divorce congress Itself for en
lightened efforts to bring about reform so
greatly needed.

a hit strenuous for the militia en

Washington, August 1.—The monthly
statement of the public debt issued today
shows that at the close of business July
31. 100<>.. the debt less cash in the treas
ury amounted to $973.8.',6,801, which is an
increase for the month of $9,421,114. Tills

decrease In the amount of cash on hand.
The recent issue of Panama bonds does
not appear In tho July statement. The
debt is recapitulated as follows:
Interest betring debt, $895,159,090.
Debt bearlrg no Interest, $397,535,067.
Debt on which interest has ceased since
maturity, $1,126,585.
Total. $1,29$,880,742.
This amourt, however, does not Include
$1,048,853,869 In certificates and treasury
notes outstanding which are offset by
an equal amount of cash on hand which
Is held for their redemption.
The cash n the treasury department
is classified as follows:
Gold reserve, $150,000,000.

Washington, August 1.—The monthly
comparative statement of the government
receipts ar*i expenditures Issued today
shows that for the month of July, 1900,
the total receipts were $52,298,852, and the
expenditures $65,813,721, leaving a deficit
for the month of $13,514,869, as against a
deficit in August, 1905, of $13,855,663. One
year ago, however, the semi-annual set
tlement note of the Central Pacific Rail
road company, amounting to $-,<62,000 was
paid upon the last day of July, so that it
was taken Into the July account. The note
of the company amounting to $2,760,630
due August 1, 1906, was not paid until to
day and therefore will be stated in the
August account. The actual deficit this
month, therefore, is $3,101,424 less than for
Julv 1905. The expenditures for the
month were $2,685,000 In excess of those
for July. 1905. which Is largely due to work
on the Panama' canal.

St. Petersburg, August 1.—The liberals
are planning imposing demonstrations here
and at Moscow for the funeral of the
