WASHINGTON, D. C, November 21.—
(Special.)— Chief/ Justice Fuller is in
Washington, but he declines to state
whether he intends to go to Richmond to
sit in the case involving the constitution
ality of the new suffrage laws of Virginia.
He was at his home all day to-day, but
was reticent on tho subject of his inten
tions. The Supreme Court is not in ses
sion, and none of the. officials of the court
have the least idea what Justice Fuller
may do. The question rests solely with
him. He has undoubtedly, received the re
quest for his presence in the case. 'and
is probably considering; what lie. will do.
All the rules and etiquette of the court
would be violated, however, .should any
advance information as to his Intentions
be made public. The person who made
the request will probably be communicat
ed -with first, and nothing will be al
lowed to come out until that time. It
would be considered a breach of courtesy
to Attorney-General Anderson, for the
Chief Justice to announce his Intentions
prior to Mr. Anderson's receiving a reply
1 to his requtst.
Cliarlottesvllle Site.
Assistant Secretary Taylor to-day ap
proved the selection of what is called the
"Synagogue corner," as the 'location of
the new Federal building for Charlpttes
yilje. The site on the northeast corner
of Market and Second streets, east. It
was offered by M. Leterinan for ?17.CK>,
but Mr. Charles E. Kemper, the Treasury
agent, who recommended the site, induced
Mr. Leterman to lower the figure-to'sls.
000, and at- this price the property will" be
purchased. The lot fronts 137 feet on Sec
ond, street, east, and 154.50 feet on Mar
ket street. Great interest haa been taken
In Chariottcsville in the matter of -the
site. Mr. .Charlas E. Kemper, who in
vestigated the. various sites offered .to the
Treasury, said: ■ .- / -, . v
"As the agentlof: the Treasury Depart
ment to select a site for the Unlteu- States
court-house and post-oftice" bulldln'gtb be
> erected in Charlottesville,- % a., I ■recom
mended to, the Secretary of the Treasury
: the selection of the site offered by M. Let
1 ermnn, known locally as the 'Synagogue
[ corner,' because, in. my- judgment, it was'
nearer and more available ~ to the center
of ■ business than any other site offered.
It is in the western end of old Chariottcs
ville, arid the placing of the building
there was to some extent a concession to
that portion of the city, which has in re
cent years txtomled towards the Univer
sity of Virginia. Much pressure was
brought to bear upon me and the depart
ment to select what is known as the 'Me- :
Kee site,' immediately adjacent to the
county court-house, but this site Is too ;
far to' the cast, and- also too '• far re
moved from the center of business and
travel in Charlottesville, which. Is on Main
between Second and Third street?, east,
a little more than' one. square from the
site "which the department has selected."

Court Could Not Restrain
Them At Announcement of ;
Divorce Verdict.
KNOXyiLLE, -TENN.. November a.—
(Special.)— The unparalleled scene'of more
than 200 women refusing to restrain their
applause after the judge and bailiff had
threatened ■„ to arrest . them and fine them
for contempt cf court, was the situation
at the conclusion of a divorce suit styled
Mrs. Margaret Wilson vs. John F. Wil
son, in this city to-day.
Another feature .of the ; occasion,, was
that many of 'the women came to the
court room primarily to hear their own
causes for-divorce, 'thirty-five of such suits
having been set for ; : to-day's docket, in
the Knox County. Circuit Court— a rrecord
breaker, it is said, for. the entire country.
Mrs. Wilson charged her husband, who
until a few months ago' was a very
prominent resident of this county, having
charge of" a . suburban postqflice and own
ing large tracts of farm .lands* rWith ' beat^
ing and abusing .her, ,unmercifullj'_:treat
ing her in other ways, and; with 'being a.
felon. -'-Wilson was: adjudged guilty of
robbing -the^postoffice, wliich .he had
charge of until he was arrested for the
crime of which he was convicted. .
The hearing consumed the greater part
of the day. When-" the verdict was an
nounced, the large gathering: of women
who had been wrought up, to a high 'pitch
of sympathy and nervous excitement, im
mediately burst into a glad sliout- of ap
plause, while the handelapping could "be
heai'd for a block away.
It was several minutes before order
could., be restored among the women. "All

DANVILLE, VA., November 21.—(Spe

night. The ceremony was scheduled to
be performed at the residence of the

the wedding supper was prepared,- the
wedding garments all ready, the preach

wedding failed to come off. The. delay
was owing to the unexplained absence
of the groom. The wedding supper was
therefore eaten without him. ■

matters, and showed that while,'-; the"
groom was absent in flesh his heart was
hovering over the scene of interrupted

WASHINGTON,; D. ;C.,; November 21.-
The State Department has been informed
that Godfrey Hunter, Jr.,:-. son' of * the
United States Minister at Guatemala City,
to-day shot and killed William Fitzgerald,
of Grand Rapids, Mich. Hunter has tak
en refuge in the legation, and an interest
ing question has arisen as to his exemp
tion from arrest.
Important details are lacking in the re
port of the affair, which has come to- the
State Department, and the officials are in
doubt. as to what should be done. They
have no notion of . surrendering without
protest an" American citizen to the local
courts of Guatemala unless- satisfied that
the. man is a proper -subject for punish
ment. "'■'■" Fitzgerald was shot four times.
Another fact developed was that young
Hunter was accompanied at the time of
the shooting by the" secretary of the lega
tion. This official is set down in the reg
ister as being James G. Bailey, of Ken
tucky,' who" went to his post in- June, 1901
• The cablegram,- also,, rather bj- sugges
tion, than bye direct statement, gave
I ground for an inference that the killing
was provoked. - •' •■" ' •
\ot Mncli'lvuovrn of Slayer,
Not much is known here of the person
ality of Godfrey Hunter. Jr., and it is im
possible to -learn definitely . whether or
not he was actually connected ofilcially
with the United States legation at Gua
temala" City, at" the time .of the killing.
That he had been ;a clerk or "typewriter
in the legation is established, but in some
quarters it is said that connection, had
been terminated for some time: This may
be a very important point in settling the
question of the" exemption of young-Hun
ter from arrest, for. alegration attache, or
employe," enjoys a large part" of -the ex
emption conferred by .international law
on an ambassador or minister. Another,
point that may. operate in Hunter's. favor
is. his kinship to theministei*.. . ■ . :
The excitement in .the neighborhood of
the legation in; Guatemala City/has made
it : difficult^^:for.:;tho: State- Department to.
obtain information from- "any; un
biasedr'perEon oonrrected with the? lesa
tioh and not involved in" the affray. There
fore it is probable that; lt will await sonic
application from the Guatemalan authori
ties-for :the ; surrender' of young Hunter,
and decide Hunter's claim to exemption
from arrest on "the basis of all the fact 3
presented. . \
• Relief of Dr. Hunter.
It is suggested here that" the shooting
affray may liave been the result of the.
recent relief- of Dr. Hunter from his post
as minister. The Doctor has been steadily
embroiled with members of the American
colony, almost since he assumed office,
in IS9B, and lately, owing to his connec
tion with a government railroad" and oth
er-matters not supposed to be proper for
a minister to -meddle with, the pressure
became so acute that. the department. was
obliged to relieve him from office. It may
be that Fitzceraldwas connected in some,
way with the charges made against the
minister. . "
FitzjcernldJ* Antecedents.
GRAND RAPIDS, MICH., November 21."
William Fitzgerald was born here, and
was about 27 years of age. Seven or eight
years ago he drifted to Guatemala, where
he. held several different government po
sitions.-He is said by his relatives here
to have been private 1 secretary; of the
president of Guatemala, for some- time
past. The last time he was in Grand
Rapids was two years ago. At one time
Fitzgerald was a parlor-car conductor on
the Grand Rapids and Indiana; railroad.
LOUISVILLE, KY., . November 21.—
Godfrey Hunter, Jr!, is well known .in
Louisville. He is about 25 years of age,
and I has acted as his father's private
secretary at the legation in Guatemala
for some time. Young Hunter figured in
a social 'affair in Louisville, which was
extensively aired about a year ago.
James G. Bailey, the secretary of ; le
gation, is about 35 years ot age. and his
"home is thought to be at Middlesboro ■■)
■He" was.-: a candidate, six j-ears ago, on j
the Republican .ticket, for clerk of the
Court of- Appeals, but was defeated.
Fitzgerald, whom young Hunter shot 1
to-day, made charges about a year ago
against Dr. Hunter. He criticised sharp- •
ly- the -way ".in. 'which Dr. Hunter conduct
ed his office, and made someserlous re
flections on the- -minister. -Fitzgerald,
while on a. trip to this country, gave
out; an interview Jn New.-. Orleans . in
which lie scored Dr. Hunter, and younj»

SCRANTON, -PA-v November- 21.— The
mine-workers, through - their represen

ers to ajltrript to adjust the differences
existing r between . them outside the An
thracite Coal Strike Commission. The
proposition was made on a compromise
basis, and : negptiations, . it ;is said, v/ill
be -at -'once entered upon with a reason

The rough proposition which is to^form
the basis of negotiations, is a 10 per cent,

trade agreements between the; miners
and; the companies by whom they are
employed. Thfe only one of the four
demands not touched upon is that*of . the

both sides have expressed a willingness
to ' settle ■•• th'cir differences among them
selyes, it is: not to be construed that it
carries^ with it the acceptance .'of the
.terms, ipioposed. ■". They .are mentioned
bniy as. a basis, it is understood. from
which a settlement' is to be effected. It
is .possible "that the foundaiion already
laid "can be' wrecked by either party's
holding out too strongly against " some
question, and thus the whole matter be
left in-the hands, of the commissioners,
"who. in the meantime, will act as a
sort of board of .conciliation, rather than
as a- board of arbitration.
.The Move" a Surprise.
'/. Few persons were aware that, an: at
tempt would; be made for an outsidt set
tlement,' until it was -practically so in
timated by Judge Gray, the chairman of
the commission, who read a carefully
prepared ' "announcement . from" the
"bench."' The move-^one of the most
important in the whole history of the
coal strike— created a mild sensation
.when It became" known. The surprise
I was air the greater when it was romem
bpred that numerous persons,- from the
President of - the — United: States down,
and 'tniany orR-anizations, from the Na
tional Civic Federaticn to -the small
boards of trade -of- tlie mmmg 1 towns, •
■f a lied- to brin e; ; the two parties together.
■ -It issaid. it;, was .all brought about by
both sides 1 seeing-, that- the . proceedings
before the commission would :be inter
minable, and that in "the -interminpling
of jtheMawyere for both sides, the out-
Klde'^frreement proposition was broached,
and "taken .up. .- ■.
It cannot be officially stated w'n'^h
pnrty madv» the proposition firft. The
•attorneys for both Ffdes nre nv»r«e to
- talking 1 , but thos*» who were inclined to
pay som^thinar differed in their stnte
ments. The pre.«lrTent of one of the raM
wa.ya said the- ovrrtur^: camp from fhf
mfnprs. one of the lawyors snfrl ;lt cime
.from- the operators, anther-renr^^pnta
tlve cf the operators raid that it was a
spontanpous prnpcltion;
Operators Made Overture.
, It is generally believed, however, that
the operators ■ mafe the proposition.
Wayne McVeagh. who carried on such a
brillinnt cross-examination of President
Mitchell, is given credit for bringing
about the present situation." He went to
New York aftvr he had finished with
Mr. Mitchell, and had a conference with
certain persons connected .with; the coal
industry.- among-' th n m. It is rrnortefl. J.
Pierpont Morgan. He w?s in New York
to-day in . connection with tlr,? matter.
The commissioners vv-ere informed of
the . new turn of affairs last nisrht. and
anquicsced in the propped arrangement.
Th-e sublet did not directly come up in
the public hoarlmr to-day, and the ad
journment proposition was made osten
sibly to permit both : rides to complete
their work of preparing documentnry
evidence. Clarence S. Darrow, of Chi
ca.£fo. one. of Mr. Mitchell's .attorneys,
brought the matter out. when, near the
close of to-day's session, he -suggested
that": the miners be given a little more
time to prepare their " evidence. The
miners" wanted to present the duo-bills
ard v/ape -statements of 'thpusnnds of.
"mirft-rs, running', back : for several years,
ard they. found that the task of present-
Injr thrm in \a"'nrppor manner was a stu
pendous one.. They ialsn-wantprV to care

this, .-too; woulrl take ronpfr"erpb*w.'t}me. :
Commission Glad to Co-Operate.
.While Mr. Darrow was saying this," the
commissioners were all 'attention;, and no i
one outside of them and a fev/.repr'esenta- i
tives/on each side of the case knew what \
was coming. • Judge Grey, in reply to i
Mr. Darrow, said, that the commission !
would be very glad to co-operate in bring- |

NEW YORK. November 21.— (Special.)—
At \the uarden- to-day was revealed a
very]- pretty romance," In which a liorse
largely figured, when -a New York, mil
lionaire and prominent member ■o£ the
Meadow Brook Hunt attempted to pur
chase the prize high-jumper, -Hornpipe,
realized for once -that he had gone
up against aometheing .which his money
couldnot buy. . ■> "■ •" ''- -
Hornpipe is the property of Mrs. • Charles

. Then, as now, the horse was a. great
favorite v.-iththe audience, and Miss Mur
chison, falling in love with' the animal,
coaxed her father •to buy hlni:'" 1 This re
sulted in several interviews^; with -Mr.
Hurkamp, who was invited by Mr. : Mur
chison tocall. He did so. and- continued
his visits at regular intervals.^ Some time
afterward his engagement to; Miss Mur
chison was announced. > -A- quiet ~llttle
wedding at the ■ bride's : home f ollowea,
and the couple have since lived at the
Boscobel Stock Farm, where Hornpipe
was bred and raised.
Hornpipe is the "champion heavy-weight
juniper of the South. Ke has won over
seventy ribbens. To-day, when Mr.; Hur
kampi";was' approached, he said: "Sell
Hornpipe? Not for a. million dollars.

of yesterday, which was said to be one
of^the largest in the history of w the i\a

interesting events were" contested, among
them one for a: cup for pairs of har

true inwardness of the mystery were-fol

that she had been a pupil of the fambuij

baritone of the Grand Opera. v-j--.-

Attorney .Butler, of Mexico City, "asking
a3/to; its disposition. The family of
Dr. ' Butler, an American dentist In tha
Rue de la; Paixi" furnished details ot* th«
antecedents "of Mrs.; Gore. They ; ; had
been intimate with ths family in. Mexico,
but did not know her here. They, say
her maiden .name was Sinclair, and that
she lived in California, where she met
