sing along Bank street on the way to her
home on High street her pocket book
• containing several dollars and a silver
thimble, was roughly torn from her hand
t" a negro, who ran away. It was light
pnough for the young lady to get a good
view of the negro, as from her description
given of him, the police soon afterwards
arrested one Willie Mosely. from Rich
mond, when confronted by Miss Bragg.
This morning. Mosely was postively identi
fied as the robberand he will be tried for

TO BE INVESTIGATED.
On the edge of Blackwater Swamp, in
Prince George county, a few miles from
this city, there have long been evidences
of the existence beneath of ■ iron and- oil.
During the visit recently of Grand Army
jnen from the North, the attention of
pome of them was attracted to this spot,
and the opinion was expressed that the
indication showed valuable deposits. 'This
morning Mr. C. A. Clarke received a letter
from Mr. Thomas R. McMillan, of Glade
Springe,'; Pa., asking that samples of tho
•vater and coil at this place be sent him
for analysis.'. If fo;:nd satisfactory, he
will come on and make further investi
gation.
Mrs. Alexander Donnan announces the
rngagemer.t of her daughter. Miss Lena
May Donnan, to Mr. Patiick; Hamilton.
The marriage will take place November
12th at the residence, on -Market street.
AMERICAN CIGAR CO. TO REMAIN.
The American Cigar Company, '■which
has been offered; flattering inducements
from nine cities. Richmond included
among the number, to remove its plant
from Petersburg/ 'has decided to enlarge
its factory here and remain in this city.
The company to-day- advertises for sale
the sheds and out-houses- on Its -grounds,
":he same to be removed at once, in order
lo build a large brick factory, in addi
:ion to the one now occupied, for the
manufacture of cigars. When this new
building is completed, and there will be
no delay about it, the plant will be an
immense one. and will greatly facilitate
work, besides giving employment to a
large additional number of hands.
The company now has the largest pay
roll of any manufacturing establishment
in the city, having S7O names thereon,
mostly females. Besides doing the stem
ming for eighteen different factories at
different points for tha company, it turns
out 18.000 cigars a day for the. trade. -
Some of the inducements offered for the
plant by other cities were offers to build
factories, to charge but a nominal rent,
and to exempt from taxation for periods
of from ten to twenty years; 'While these
offers were tempting, the chief.advantage
of labor, which Petersburg has, was lack
ing in other communities. Therefore the
company prefers to keep its plant in Pe-.
tersburg, and to build and .enlarge to suit
Its own convenience aua meet its own
needs. .......
RUNAWAY BOYS ARRESTED.
Police Officer Webb last night arrested
?„ 13-yen.r-old negro boy named Julius B.
Hairston, who has. been a runaway from
his home in Farmville since the 23th or
September last. This is the second time
lift has run away from his parents.
This morning Officer Dyson picked up
two white boys, aged about 1G years each,
who are runaways from tin ir homes in
Ga. They give their names as
Addison Hoop and Bert Spencer, and say
they left Atlanta on Friday. Their pa
rents will be communicated with.
DISAPPOINTED MEN.
Many men, white and colored—machin
ists, laborers, and others— appeared this
morning at the Shirley Hotel in response
to an advertisement of a genlloman from
Richmond, who wanted to employ l,o£Ki
men. The applicants, however, were dis
sppointcd in not finding the advertiser
G. A. R. MEN GRATEFUL. '
Letters have been received from many
of the northern veterans who recently
visited Petersburg:. expressing hearty

Creseens's Gallant Attempt — Ig-niter
"Wins the Ramapo llandiccp at
Morris Park — Belle ot Lexington
Springrs a Surprise — Other Events.
MEMPHIS, TENN., October 23.— Two
world's records broken, another one tied,
and a gallant attempt by the great Cres
ceus to lower his trotting record, were
the sensational features at the Driving
Park to-day. •
Onward Silver, accompanied by a run
ner, got off the second trial, and the
handsome trotter fairly flew around the
first turn. Hudson apparently checked
his speed at the Jirst quarter, which was
passed in :34U- Going down the back
stretch Onward Silver broke, but soon re
gained his stride. The half was run in
l:0S?i, and the three-quarter pole in
1:41 ] ,2. Here the running horse set a hot
pace to the wire, and the mile was made
in 2:l4'^.
At the next pole the time registered
2-AS\i. Down the back stretch again On
ward Silver moved with clock-like pre
cision, and the mile and a half post v.as
reached in 2:2l'^. Here the runner again
set a hot pace, and at the last quarter
pole the 'time was 3:b\l~.
Hudson began to urge the horse to" the
stretch, and when the wire was reached
a new world's record was hung out, the
time being 4:2SU-
Creeceus.- with two runners, next ap
peared. Ketchum sent him along at a
lively gait lo the quarter m :31%. When
tho half was passed in 1:02, old horsemen
shook their heads and remarked that the
2:02U record was safe. The three-quarter
pole was readied in 1:33*~ and the mile
was finished in 2:04 tlat. - - ?"

Splcnditl Record as a Soldier, Clti
. Zen, and Paljllc Official.
Judge Henry "W. Flournoy, one of the
most popular and widely-known men .in
Virginia; died yesterday morning ,_at
Houston, Tex. The sad news was re
ceived here by Dr. E.-Galeski in a tel
egram from Mr. T. J. Gastori, a promi
nent member of Houston, which read:
"Judge. Flournoy died -at S:OS this morn
ing; heart failure; son with him." No
further; particulars were given, but it. is
thought i that his death must have been
very.; sudden", as nothing: was known, of
his illness here, and Mrs. Flournoy .was
at the time visiting- relatives in Charles
ton, W. Va. , .■• " :
REMAINS TO BE BROUGHT HERE.
Dr. Galeski wired Mr. Gaston to have
the body prepared for burial and shipped
to; Richmond at once. The interment will
take place in Hollywood as soon^as the
body reaches here, which will probably
be to-morrow.
- The sad intelligence was received here
with the deepest grief. There is
JUDGE HENRY W. FLOURNOY.
hardly a man of any prominence in the
" city who did not know Judge Flournoy
personally, and the news of his sudden
end was not long in spreading. Men stop
ped, on the street to- tell each' other,
friends ''phoned one another and discussed
the great 'lose suffered by. Virginia. Grief
was universal as v.-as the laudation of
the splendid man. All felt that they had
iost; a personal friend, whose place could
not be filled.
UNIVERSALLY POPULAR.
Judge Flournoy was a man who com
bined all the virtues and few of the vices
common : to mortals. A distinguished ju-
J rist, an ardent patriot, a brave soldier,
and : a - devoted husband and father, he
passed through the vicissitudes of. life
' without a blemish upon his character.
No word is heard in depreciation of his
worth— all epeak of him as an "honora
ble man." He never had an enemy— even
his political opponents admired and hon
ored him. Every man was his friend, and
there was probably no citizen in. the State
more widely known than he. He posses
sed the innate courtliness which marked
him among his lellow mortals and made
him pre-eminently a type of the "Old
Virginia- Gentleman." -
: Judge Flournoy was a writer of no mean
ability. He. edited %nd compiled several
law books, among which was a revised
edition of Mayo's Guide. All of his works
: were well thought of by the profession,
and are in constant use.
A BRILLIANT CAREER.
Judge Flournoy' s career was a brilliant
one and his sudden death came upon the
eve of the success of his great financial
undertaking. He was born , in Halifax
county in the year IS4G, being a son of the
late Thomas S. Flournoy, of Prince Ed
ward,-and a grand-son of Judge Fiournoy]
of the same county. His early education
was received at the best private' schools
in- this section of the State, but was in
terrupted at- the' age of W, by the war
between the States. In July, ISO 2, he cast
his lot with the Confederate cause and
enlisted in Company G,. Sixth Virginia'
Cavalry, in whicu he served with distin
guished gallantry until wounded at Tom's
Creek, in October. ISC4. The' following
November he enlisted in the Third Com
pany, Richmond Howitzers, with which he
fought until the surrender at Appomattox.
BEGAN PRACTICE :N DANViLLE.
At the close of the war he took a course
of private reading in- law, and began to
' practice in Danville in ISC".- In June,- IS7O,
he was electcrl judge of the : Corporation i
Court of Danville, which office he held
until IS7S, when he. resigned his judgeship
and resumed the practice of law' inHali- j
fax. He took his place among the most
talented "attorneys in .the State and con- j
tinued-at his chosen profession until 1533, j
when he was elected to the office of Secre
tary^ the" Commonwealth. In this capa
city Judge. Flournoy served his State with
signal .ability. He" was re-elected to the
ofiicefor six consecutive terms.
His first political reverse came in the i
year. 2893. when he was defeated for the j
office of Secretary of 'the; Commonwealth; j
by. Hon." Joseph T. LaAvless, then of Ports- ;
mouth. .'. v, .. ;. v.,
... Judge; Flournoy_ r - was a personal and
political ■ friend ; of: Colonel A. S.
Buford, .who • feels " his dealli deeply,' and
who stood by him in his political battles.
[His vigorous opposition to: Colonel,;O'Fer
rall created some: feeling and when the
Legislature was chosen in sympathy with
■ the; new " Go vernor. Judge Flournoy.' s flag
went down after one of the bitterest con
tests ever fought at the Capitoli
HIS PRIVATE LIFE. ,
Judge Flournoy..resumed the practice of
law in this city in 1594, but shortly there
after -in' hopes of repleting. his 'broken
fortunes he became interested .in :thp
gold fields of Klondike. This venture did"
; not j' prove "successful and he moved to
• Farmville and 'again resumed the practice
of -law.. He lived there until -the", time of
: his. death. '"^ " / " -I

(remarkable, personality, and. unsurpassed.

CAR STRUCK A HORSE.
3lr. J. T. :.-. AndcifaonM: Fine. Aiiinml,
■ TVestovcr, Slightly Injtired:
Mr. J. T. Anderson, president of ; the
Horse Show' Association, had a narrow
escape from a serious accident yesterday
afternoon at 4:3o?o'clock on :Maln, street,
near the Chamber, of : Commerce. His
horse, Westover, hitched to . a runabout
containing Mr. ; Anderson and his . negro
driver/ was struck by/ car No. 2-18 of/ the
Clay street line, on the east bound .track,
and thrown, heavily to th-e ground. The
animal's forefoot was' caught in .the fen
der of the car and badly wrenched.. Mr.
Anderson and his : driver jumped; from
the vehicle when; the horse went down,
and -escaped .injury. ' •\ ; ■■'„...
Mr. Anderson," had just passed Isinth
street, and was proceeding up Main on
the east track. The Clay strVet car,
Motorman Brinkley in / charge. :was com
ing down Main street on the. same track.
Mr. Anderson was unable lo. \_turn his
horse to the west track on account of the
repairs that are going on to that portion
of the track. lit was cut off from turn
ing out to the right or left by. vehicles
that were standing. on the. street. . at- ; He ;
'tempted to reach- an open space beyond
the vehicles on. the "south "side "of* Main
street, and his efforts, must have , been
plainly visible to the mbtorman". The car
continued to approach, and Mr.' Ander
son, seeing that he could not make the
opening before the car shut him off.
stopped his: horse, and began. to back him
down Main street to avoid a collision. The
car continued to and it looked
as If the motorman made no effort to as
sist Mr. Anderson, in his effor's, to es
cape. It was evident ' to " th*3 bystanders
that a collision was inevitable unless tho
car was stopped, as Mr:' Anderson could
not turn out to avoid; the collision on ac
count of excavations on. the west track.
The car struck the ' horse's head . and
knocked him clown, turning, tire runabout
around and dragging the animal several
feet. Fortunately the speed of the" car
had been reduced, and the runabout was
not overturned. Tiro animal was bleed
ing- about the eye. and was badly shaken
up, but it is not thought that he is seri
ously hurt..
There is : no reason. to doubt that, had
reasonable care been exercised by" the
motorman in putting on his brakes and
reversing his lever, the accident would
not have happened. Mr. Anderson said
that the collision could have been avert
ed,, as his pred' :ainent was plainly seen
by the motorm n in time to prevent the
accident. No arrest was made.
