<sal.)—lf GUUgan is at all superstitious,
jh>n he must be fcclinij very badly to
d;ij". because, out of the venire sum- :
raoned in his case, thirteen out of the
sixteen were accepted. When court met
this morning those present were about
« (jually divided in opinion as to whether
ifif-re should be a postponement or a trial,
but the Vacl that Mrs. Susan Batten, a
witness, reported sick on yesterday, was
present, and that Thomas Howe, another
sick witness, -was reported better, seemed
uj give every ussurance of a trial. And,
after the witnesses for both the Com
monwealth «aiui the defence -had been
called, it was a source of relief to every
one present to hear counsel on both sides
announce themselves as ready. Gilligan
v.as brought into court at 11 o'clock, and
: >ok his accustomed seat. He was look
ing fresh ;ii!d bright, and smiled and
bowed to his many friends in the court
room; His counsel promptly demurred
u» the indictment, which the Court over
ruled; nnd they exempted.
Gilligan was then arraigned. He stood
erect, with his left hand resting on coun
sel's table, and in a clear and distinct
vnjee pleaded not guilty to the indict
Colonel Baker made a motion to quash
the venire, but this was promptly over
ruled by the Court." and another excep
tion was noted.
As the jurymen were called each man
was sworn separately, and the questions
to each man wer-e -propounded by Colonel
Boykin. for the Commonwealth, and Judge
Hijuon and Mr. Edwards, for the defence.
Out of the venire of sixteen summoned
thirteen, as above noted, were obtained,
the three excused b«"ing M. W. Darden.'

to the Court whether he would be able
to star.d the fatigue of active jury ser
vice. Dr. Ward made the examination,
and reported that if Dunstan served he
v.-tmld be running considerable risk, as
he had fever then, and his leg was much
inflamed. Judge Atkinson decided to ex
cuse Dunstan. Counsel for defence ex
ccpned to the ruling.
Tha venire being: exhausted. Judge At
kinson issued summons fcr another, and
tin.- thirtff-n wor« placed in the hands cf
the Sheriff, for dinjier.
I: was A o'clock before Sheriff Edwards
returned -a.-kh Uie second venire. The de-
Ur.ce oTjjccted to J. T. B. Pruden as a
juror. He was closely questioned by Col
onel Boyldn ajjd Judge Hinton. " Mr.
PniSen l:ad, he said, formed an oj)inion
:rom newspaper reports and rumors. His
opinion had been formed principally upon
ibe reports of the case furnished the
Virginian-Piloti which reports had been
fnrnished b^- a soa of Mr. Pruden's, and
which The counsel for Gilligan insisted,
aid their clSent an injustice. Mr. Pruden.
in answer to questions, stated that it
%vould take reports of an equally reliable
ciiaracter 10 remove the impression made
upon his mind by the reports he road.
Colonel Boykin, after Colonel Baker had
started to state the grounds upon which
tl;e defence objected to Pruden's serving
as a juror, staged to the Court that the
iTOFftcution did not want to put a man on
the jury whom tiie defence thought was
not- a fair-mirr<?.'d and unbiased . juror,
and asked that Pruden stand aside.
The romainir.g; three jurymen were soon
selected, and after the list had been hand
■<S to counsel for defence, and by thorn
submitted to Gilli-an, the following gen
tlemen were struck off: c. T King W

LONDON, June 7—3:15 A. M.— Military
operations in South Africa are apparent
ly at a standstill for a day or two. The
tired troops of Lord Roberts arc resting.,
and he is. filling the magazines and ware
houses at his new base, Pretoria, pre
paratory to a long chase after the re
tiring Boers in ihe direction of Lyden
burg. His cavalry are probably seeking
to intercept Commandant Botha.
Lydenburg, the district into which the
provisions originally destined for Pre
toria have been diverted, and where a
cartridge factory has been erected and
reserve supplies of all sorts are stored,
is a volcanic region, of fertile valleys,
enclosed by great ramparts of precipitous
rocks, pont rated by narrow. winding
passes. There are herds of cattTe in the
valleys, and there is much native labor
available for fortifying.
Probably the most^mportant Boer army
is At Laing's Nek. where both sides
are passive. General Rundle and General
Brabant have withdrawn a little south
General Baden-Powell has extended
martial law to the Marico and North
Lichtenburpr districts. Shots were ex

NEW YORK. June C— The directors of
the Norfolk and Western railroad met
here to-day, and in view of the fact that
prior to the session a report was circu
lated in Wall street that representatives
of the Pennsylvania railway were to enter
the board, considerable interest was at
tached to the meeting.
At the conclusion of the meeting, how
ever, it was stated that no information
would be mafic public, though a state
ment might be given out-to-morrow. The
delay in making the announcement led
to a report in Wall .street -'that some hitch
had occurred in : the- prearranged plans,
but nothing definite on this point could
be ascertained.

Bitter Discussion of the Armor-Plate
Question. t /•
Hoiwe the Scene of a Sensational
Debate, on. the Ocean-Survey flat
ter — (.'mi nun Makes Some Startling-
WASHINGTON, June 6.— lnability to
reach an agreement upon the naval bill
forced the Senate to abandon the ex
pectation of final adjournment to-day.
The armor-plate question, which for live
years has Ijeen a thorn in the side of
Congress, upset the calculations 'of- the
Senate leaders, and their well-laid plans
went awry.
It was a day of strife and turmoil in
the Senate. Early the conf errees on the
naval bill reported a disagreement, and
the Senate was told plainly that the
House- would not consent to the amend
ment providing for an armor-plate fac
tory to be operated by the government.
The discussion of .the Penrose compro
mise proposition, which was adopted, de
veloped an unusual bitterness of feeling,
and charges of robbery and political cor
ruption were hurled about the .-chamber
with an abandon which, if they had not
fallen from the lips of grave senators,
would have been regarded as reckless. Lit->
tie worse was ever heard in the heat of
a political campaign. To-night, Senators
Carter, Mason. Turner, and Money kept
the Senate on edge with rattling hot
The. House, at 10:30 P. M.. took a re
cess until 10 o'clock to-morrow.
The two chambers of the Federal
Legislature, with heads down and horns
locked, were in a deadlock.
The proceedings in the House during
the day were tame and without dramatic
incident, but to-night the House got its
dander up over the failure of its' confer
rees to abide by their instructions on the
ocean-survey item, and after an exceed
ingly sensational debate, in which Mr.
Cannon, the chairman of the Appropria
tions Committee, made some startling dis
closures as to the manner, in which Com
mander Todd. the Hydrographer of the
navy, had waged his campaign against
the stand taken by the House in. favor
of the rcoas.t-:r coas.t- : Or feeoctetic" survey's": doing
ocean-survey work, the House rejected
the "conference report by an ovei-whelming
majority, and the Speaker took the
almost unprecedented course of appoint
ing new conf errees on the part of the
House, who are not members of the Naval
The debate was one of the bitterest and
most heated of the session. Mr. Cannon,
in the excitement of the moment, took
off his collar and tie. and with sleeves
rolled up, aroused the House to a' tre
mendous pitch of enthusiasm; as he "dealj
the conferrees sledge-hammer blows.
The galleries, crowded to the door,
cheered the picturesque figure of the griz
zled old veteran.
The conferrees defended their course
as* best they could, and Mr. Foss, acting
chairman of the committee, resented with
bitter language the charge that he had
betrayed ' the House. Hot words were
bandied back and forth, but the. House
was in an ugly mood, and was resolved
to- fight the Senate to a finish.
The appointment of Mr. Cannon, Mr.
Moody, and Mr. Shafrbth> all of. whom
are in sympathy withTthff House posi
tion, as conferrees, assures no surrender
on their part, until the House shall di
rect them to yield.

WASHINGTON, June C— When the Sen
ate reconvened at 10 o'clock this morning
two or throe minor bills were passed, and
a recess was then taken to await confer

Mr. Hale presented a conference report
on the naval appropriation bill. It was a
disagreement upon all the questions in

"The Secretary of the Navy is hereby

ditions, he is hereby authorized and di

Mr. Tillman attacked the amendment.
"The chairman of the Naval Committee"
(Mr. Hale), he said, "has declared that
the government is being robbed, and that
the armor trust has a knife at the gov
ernment's throat, and now it is proposed
to let them cut the government's, throat.

.Mr. Turner, of Washington, sharply
criticised the Republican leaders for
forcing adjournment whiles such measures
.as the Nicaragua canal bill, the anti
trust bill, and the eight-hour labor bill
demand attention.
Mr. Hale explained the disagreement
with the. House on ocean surveys. While
Mr. Hale was speaking, the official an
nouncement of the action of the. House
was made, and Mr. Hale moved that the
Senate insist upon its amendments and
grant the conference required by the
House. This was done, and Mr. Butler
was appointed a conf erree. in place of
Mr. Tillman, who had left for : his home.
On motion of Mr. Hale, the Senate, at
10:45 P. M., adjourned until 11 o'clock to
House of Representatives.
When the House "reassembled, at -S A.
M., the conference report on the general
report on the general deficiency bill, show
ing a complete; agreement, was agreed
Mr. Cannon submitted, the conference
report of the sundry civil bill," showing
the item carrying the claims of Nevada
to be only one in dispute. The item for
the memorial bridge across the Potomac
river was struck out. The provision as to
State claims was compromised b\\ an
amendment that certain Federal claims
against those States would not ba prose
cuted. . •
Mr. Cannon explained that the Senate
added about ?5,000,0C0 to the .-original "sfJl,-'
000.000 of his bill, and by. this report the
Senate -yielded about' ■' $1,000,630 and the
House $-1,000,000.
Considerable debate followed on the va
rious items. The conference 'report was
agreed to, but the disputed, item was sent
back for further conference. This was to
appropriate $461,GC0 for the claims of Ne
vada for extra pay. given Nevada's sol
diers during the civil war.
At 12:30 the House recessed until 1
On reconvening, over one hundred mem
bers with private bills were. 1 hustling about
trying to secure recognition, but Mr.
Lentz, of Ohio, had declared that he
would object to unanimous consent for
anything until an order, was- ."mads to
permit the printing of .the Coeur d'.Alene,
investigation testimony. <No one could
persuade him to yield. Figurately, he hud
the House by, the throat. Then another
recess was taken until 1:45. Then Mr.
Lentz Wihdrew his objection against
several- bills of minor importance. At 2
o'clock another -half-hour recess was
taken. At 2:30 another minor bill was
passed.' and then Mr. Lentz resumed- his
objections/ The : House again came to a
standstill and recessed until 3 o'clock. ' '.
When the House reconvened Mr. Lentz
still blocked the path of private bills.
Several he let pass, and one. offered by
a. Democratic member, he yielded to. , Mr.
Cushman. .of Washington,, immediately
objected, in retaliation:, for the Demo
cratic objection to a '.bill/he had . offered.

upon its disagreement , to the Senate

of the sea course .for naval" cadets. -

Ail Buildings and an 'Immense; Stock'
Totally Destroyed, j :/
It Started Between Midnight liiul 1
o'clock and. Bnrncd With Little to
Hinder It — American Ether-Works
I in Dangcrt
The factory and stock of the Virginia
and North Carolina Wheel ..Company, on
the. Osborne turnpike, a short distance
below . the -city, were' totally destroyed
by fire .this morning. .
The plant "was amonsr. the largest, if
not the largest, of. the kind in the world.
The loss will foot. up many thousands of
dollars.- and about : 27s men^willbe thrown
out of work. ; ' ' ' ■-■■■■ -
Nearly all the stock of the company
was owned by -New York people.
The fire is" thought to have originated
about 12:30 o'clock this morning. It start
ed in the vicinity of the rim sheds, which
were^ of. "wood and were full of stock. The
factory operatives, who / resided near,
were awakened by. : the. blaze and noise,
and rushed to the scene." They «re or
ganized into ..a company for 'the purpose,
of fighting fire, but they could not cope
with the fiercely-raging flames, fed by
material of the most inflammable nature.
The flames spread rapidly— to -the ware
house, to the offices, to the drying-rooms,
to the spoke-house, to the wheel-room,
the" saw-mills," and then to the factory :
proper, in which was nearly all the ma
chinery of the company.' This was a
brick building/ but it was quickly, gutted.
It was a little after 2 o"clock when the
main building caught. At" that time there
! were two acres of .the most inflammable
material, burning with the utmost fierce!
! ness,; throwing. a. glare that-:illumined..the<
heavens and lighted; the surrounding
country for a : great distance. The timber
burning was all well seasoned, : ; and it
burned- like tinder.
An alarm Was .turned in, and although
the .scene of the fire was beyond the
corporate limits," No. 8 Engine Company
was ordered.- out: but owing to the dis
tance it was late in reaching the fire.
It looked at one time as though the
works of the American Ether Company,
across the road to the -west of the fac
tory, would be burned. For an -hour the
office building- appeared to be certain of
destruction, but the firemen got a good
stream on the roof, and at 3:20 it" was
seen that the works were saved.
The Chesapeake and Ohio railroad track
runs very near the wheel-works. Some
of the ties caught fire, but the. damage
from this source did not amount to much.
The telegraph, wires were somewhat de
ranged. J .:.."/ / . ;
About se%'enty-five yards from the rail
road track was a small dwelling, owned
and occupied by Mr. Lawrence Dwyer.
This caught about 3 o'clock, and was
destroyed. Most of the furniture had
been removed and the. family/ escaped. "
At half-past 3 o'clock- the wind was
blowing to the east "and the . fire was
making headway on a -large; quantity of
unfinished timber and rapidly approach
ing the large" sheds/wh ich are filled with
timber. At that hour at. least two acres
of ground had* been burned- over:- ■
The damage will, probably reach ?150i000.
The insurance will probably approximate
ly cover it. /The'buildings were- all/of
frame save the main, or factory, building,
which was .of brick. ■; . .' : '"\ .'
The stock was the largest the company
has ever had on hand, consisting of valu
able oak, hickory, and dogwood, ' much
of it worked up into spokes, .fellies, and
hubs. ... , ' . .; . , .".
/The wheel plant was brought here
about 11 years ago from North Carolina."
It was then a small enterprise, but it has
grown steadily and become an Immense
establishment. Practically /the entire
stock is oVned^by Messrs. W. A. Mc-
Mahon. and John Crane, of New York,
the president and: vice-president respect
tively. Mr. Edward L. Brown' ls trea-.
surer and 11.. W. Bowman secretary.
The. establishment' was, insured., but jor
whaU amount could not be learned.

At 4 o'clock the fire, was, under control
It; was stated at that hour that the total
loss -would amount to SITo.C-00.-- /Manager'
