.What is described as '.'a little buttle,"
• occurred Moiiday on a Chesapeake and
-Ohio train having on board a number of
I negrooF • who ; had : been to Louisa Court.
; ..One of them brought on the /difficulty.; by
Staiiins possession- of a .gentleman's cane,.
i and" it was only after a lively scrimmage
fthat' .he and his - companion were
: put oil the train. One. of the chroni
s'clers of the event closed his account by
? -saying that "all who were on board the
Ittrain- arc now. in fovor of the Jim: Crow
' car. bill." .
Of course 1 , it may be said that that was
.^a mere "isolated incident,'; but the fact
%is t that" these Jslolated incidents are too
ilmjiient. • It is also a fact that the jiuro
|ber;.of'colored 'persons travelling is. much
'■ pmallcr thJin\th'e number of white .Per-.

'-'trouble on railroad trains than the'whites
do;- We had heard that there had been
••-some improvement in the conduct of the
..bljicks since the "Jim Crow car law;
| began to be discyssed, hut. the incident
f -we; have referred- to -would seem, to '•be-
Siie[; that supposition. -
■ ; ?h However, we are not relying' •upon jeo

|Ss|t|iat : white travellers do not wish the

In the Query and Answer column of
last Sunday's Dispatch there was repub
3i.siied a valuable letter 'written: by the
late Judah P. Benjamin on the subject
of -'American Claimants of Knglish Es-,
"tatcs." '"' ; ;' '.- ; ■ '"'.;- ;- - .'-.-■ '; "
Mr. Benjamin was Secretary of State
of the Confederate Government when the.
war. closed. Of all the brilliant men who
served; in Mr. Davis's' Cabinet, none ex
colled him. On Sunday, April 2, ISGS, : he
left Richmond .with the presidential
party, whose first stop was at Danville.
Fi-'ora- there to Georgia they" went^ by rail:
Having arrived at the' end of the railroad
line, the party took to horses; all except
Mr.' Benjamin, who, though a genius: in ;
most .other respects, was a very Poor
rider. And so, while the others made
their way through the country on horse
back, he bought himself a^ horse and
wagon, disguised himself as a trading
man, and drove to Florida. From the
Florida coast he escaped in an open boat,
to the Bahamas, whence he took ship^.to
Englanil. - • •
In England Mr. Benjamin found- good
friends, and in a. comparatively, short
space of time he was admitted to the:
bar. After the lapse of a few years, he
gained a good practice and became wide
ly known.. ;
' .To him hundreds of Americans; wrote
on the subject of estates in the United
kingdom, which they fancied were theirs..
He investigated the general question
thoroughly, but instead of filling his"
pockets with, fees, which he could
aasiiy." have secured from American en
quirers, he wrote a letter, to a New Or
legns newspaper, in which he quoted the
| :' English laws upon the subject and point
ed out the utter absurdity of nearly all
the claims advanced.- A certain ."Woods
estate" was referred to. by him. as fur
nishing a celebrated case: attended by r a^
vast number, of blighted hopes. : '.
■ We urge all who imagine that they are
entitled to assert claims to English es-.
tates to get a copy of - Mr, : Benjamin's
letter und read -what that grefLt lawyer
had to say upon the subject.
■As a rule, the opinions,: of Paris news
papers do not appeal to serious consider- ■
ation. The French press :is prone to
grasp nearly uli questions from a super
ficial point of view. But ther'eis an ex
ception in the case of the Temps in dis
cussing the -open door in China." ; The
Temps : notes that each Power has al
ways accompanied the "little partitions'' •
of: China which have taken place with
tli e formal understanding to maintain the
conventional status, quo. Therefore it
argues that Secretary Hay gave himself
a superfluous task and gained an easy
victory, . since nobody disputed him. Then
the TempH adds: .
"Xiivcrtljtiless, the negotiations are a
gniva novelty. '.The United States: is now
acting as a' grniat r world power. It: Has
bmerged from its* time-honored isolation.
.This means' that the Monroe doctrine" has
fallen h'ke a part of the great aJ I P 1
ciiinji. president .' McKinley and , his Sec
retary pf" ?ta't e"ljave hastened 'ihis inter

j Fallen,: truly. No longer is^ it an Ameri
can bulwark. The Mclyinley adininistra
lion, through Jts imperialistic policy, has
overthrown it. And .fliould apy foreign
Power attempt to walk over the ruin, we
would -have no right, under the doctrine,
to say nay. : - ' - '

Marshairs" commencement ; of his ;- great
career as Chief-Justice; ;wWch; covered a.
period of th irt y-f ou r years, :; Feel ing al
lusion was made; to the great /jurist .in
the address delivered before ;the Virginia
Bar Association last: summer, by its . re
tiring president, Hon. John Goode.;; In
this connection he said: "As Virginia;
lawyers we cannot afford to be indiffer
ent to a movement inaugurated by others
for the purpose of honoring the memory,
of the illustrious Virginian who presided:
over the Supreme Court from 1801 to 1835,
blazing the way for ; his ■ successors in the
interpretation of the ■: Constitution; .and
adorning the exalted 'station by his.splen
did; genius, : his profound learning/and
his manly ; virtues." ;; •■: .'-.. - : ,
At the same meeting of our Bar Asso
ciation a, resolution, providing for. the ap-_
pointment of. a committee of five toco-PP
erate with the "National. Association, inits
purpose :to honor Chief-Justice Marshall,
was adopted. . . . ;■
An effort //will be . made by. the Virginia
lawyers to secure and preserve as a per
petual home of American, lawyers the
residence of 'the. great 'jurist, which
stands on the northwest . corner of - Ninth
and Marshall* streets, jn this city.; . Sen
ator Hoar,: of Massachusetts, to - whom
thisplan has been mentioned, is. enthusi
astic over it. Indeed, ' it was he who,sug
gested that it be made a home for - all
American lawyers, Instead of a^.mere.hab
itat for the Virginia organization. V If
this plan can be successfully: carriedout,
the venerable' building ..will, also, be. used
as a depository for objects commemora
tive, of Marshall's life and work, -
Elsewhere we print an article from the
pen of Hon. A. M. Waddell, of Wijrping
ton, N. ,C, on the treatment of the negro
in the South, and the effect of the famous
Wilmington "revolution", of ISOB. It: is in
reply to Sir. Edward Atkinson, of Boston,
who, it seems, Jias taken, occasion to
animadvert, in; the old, familiar, New
England way, -'on. the manners and customs'
of this pa.t of the country. y Colonel Wad
dell (lie was T a colonel in the Confederate
army) was '■ a leader ; in the ."revolution"
above referred to, arid has since been . the
Mayor, of Wilmington. . : He, therefore,
knows thoroughly whereof he speaks. We
believe the white people and the negroes
in the South would get along very well;
together were the black : men .free from
the. influence of designing, whites* who
stir them to action against their best
friends for the sake of Republican party
advantage, but we are not surprised to
hear Colonel .Waddell say that , since .the
I'revolulion" of '98, as a result of which
many negroes left Wilmington, "order
and law, have taken the place of disorder
and lawlessness— confidence, has been sub
stituted, for anxiety amongst capitalists
and business-men— traffic by railroads and
steamships has increased— bank deposits
are: larger, in spite of disastrous hank
failures a few years ago^new mills and
other enterprises, one of .which cost a
quarter of a. million, have been establish
ed—more'and better buildings, residential
and business, have been erected than .ever
before in any one year— the city debt to
the amount of $150,000 has been refunded
at lQVr§r Jnterest-ra, more cheerful spirit,
than for many years prevail^— and, in a
word, strangers who- have returned to
the city, after having known: it a .year 1
end a h.^lf •: ago, express astonishment at
the general improvement, . and say,; they
can hardly realize that it is the same
place." The truth is that before the.♦'revo
lution" Wilmington had too large a.pro
portion of negroes in "H§ population for
its zrood. ; "
The medical . profession of Washington
are, much '.interested, in the case of Max
Krebs, the young { German v.'ho was re
cently arrested i. for slashing the dresges
of .several ladies in the cagita} city. "Jack
the .Cutter," as he is popularly caljedi
has made a full: confession of his strange
mania, and admits that he has; operated,;
not only 'in Washington, but in is^ew
York arid, Pliiladelphia. It has .b een tlie .
prisoiier'g custom to. seek well-dressed,
fine-looking women at matinees, in ■de
partment stoves, and elsewhere, and to
plash their clothing with a kntfe.
-He says that a violent headache or dizzi
ness would, follow the gratification of his
strange desire,; and that in order to find
relief he was forced to do the same thing
again,:-.': Thus"he.was" he. was sometimes compeljea
to ruin four or fivd dresses i.n" one day.
; There seems :to be- no. question; that
■Kreba is a' mononianiac, and: the "doctors
cite cages' parallel to his, which are men-.
, tioned in 'piany ; standard . medical -works.
.These cases,-, however; .have heretofore
gppeaVed hi other countries..: This : is the
. first— or one of the ; flrst-^of • the kind dis
covered in America. ' ■
