Groom Resplendent in War Paint of a
Big Chief.
tSpeclnl to The '"'linuii-DInp?tcti.)
BLIJISFIEDD, VT. VA., May SO.-Per
hnps the most Interesting feature of the
Re?l Mon's Carnival was the public mar
rlngo last night. Tho ceremony was per?
formed In a large enclosed spaco In the
west end of the city, and It Is estimated
that fully five thousand people witnessed
tho nuptials. Of these noarly four thous?
and were within tho onclosuro. while
moro than a thousand more climbed
trees and got on tho house tops In the
neighborhood.
Tho contracting parties were Samuel
Tahor, a member of tho Bramwell Tribe
of Rod Men, and Miss Maud Aldrldge, of
prnniwoll. The groom was resplendent in
the war paint of a big chief, and the bride
was dressed to represent Pocahontas. The
attendants (Mr. and Mrs. Frank Smith.
Mr. and Mrs. Edward Price, Roscoo Gar?
land, with Miss Minnie Rennet; and Mr.
Bnmuel Sheppard, with Miss Eunice Tu
bor) were also in Indian costume. The

'LONGSHOREflAN'o STRIKE
Plenty of Men to Take the Place of the
Strikers,
(Special to Th? -Times-Dispatch.)
NEWPORT NEWS, VA., May 30.?
From tho present prospects It seems that
the strike of the negro longshoremen em?
ployed by the United States Shipping
Company and Furness-Wlthy .and Com?
pany will come to an end without the
companies suffering any great Inconveni?
ence. About lil'ty of tho .strikers have
Slready applied for work, und It Is said
that the dissatisfaction in tho ranks la
growing greater every day.
Yesterday morning tho companies
brought n number of negroes over from
Norfolk, und these, with tho white men
already at worki are all that are needed
just now. Noxt week will probably bo'a
busy one, anil If tho companies do not
bav?> enough men to handl? their ?hip?.
moro negroes will bo brought from Nor?
folk.
All of the strikers who npplled for work
yesterday were Riven their places back,
but both companies have declared that
they will not discharge any of the new
men to iriako room for tho old ones In
case they want to return.
Robert Ciitry, tho white stevedore, Is
sllll at work, and the United States-Ship?
ping Company will not consider tho ne?
groes' demand that he be discharged. The
stevedore had trouble with one of ?ho
longshoremen, and nfter being beaten by
blm, shot at him. This brought on tho
ft If Ike.
The School Board last night met In
special Session and appointed the tendi?
era for the public schools for (he com?
ing year.' All of tho old teachers, with
tinee exceptions, wei-e re-elected. Super?
vising PHlicipal Jenkins, who has mot
with such great success during this year,
bis first session with tho schools, was
re-?lected, and his salary was raised
from il&o per month to "?1,E00 per year.
Dr. J. \V. Torter, pastor of the First
Baptist Church, left to-day for Char
lellesvllle, and to-morrow night he will
deliver the baccalaureate sermon to the
grnriimtlng ?lass or Rawlins Institute.

tertainment that possibly this may be

NEGRO EXHIBIT AT
THE EXPOSITION
Company Being, Organized
With a Gapital of a Mil^
lion Dollars.
In the great exposition which takes
place at Jamestown; Va., In-1907, the-Cor?
poration Commission, will-be called upon
within the- next- few- duys- to grant a
charter of- incorporation to "The- Negro
Development and Exposition Company of
tho-United States," with an authorized
capital stock- of ?l,000,O?O; It- is* formed
for the purpose of making thef greatest
showing at tlila exposition of what the
colored race ha:? done for themselves since
1E65.. by. the erection of a great build?
ing, upon the grounds that may be al?
lotted to them by. the Jamestown Expo?
sition Company-, that each State In the
Union shall have departments- for their
exhibits; that there-may be a olose ean
vass' made In' all- of tho States by the
colored people, having a-sufficient popu?
lation to secure exhibits, to be-placed to
their credit In the departments allotted
to them in* the proposed negro building.
This company, when formed, will work
under and by the direction, of the James?
town Exposition-Company, but they will
have their own officers, to consist of a
president, a- number or vice-presidents,
selected from the-different States; a sec
rotary, an- assistant secretary, a treas?
urer, a director general, a board of di?
rectors to bo chosen from the various
States, a- number of deputy gonorals to
be chosen In like manner, a. commission?
er general from ?iach State and an ad?
visory board-to be composed of a num?
ber of white gentlemen.
Tho presidency of this company has
been offered to Booker T. Washington,
but should' luv lind it' inconvenient to ac?
cept, as he Is already heavily burdened
by other obligations,- ihten' John Hi
Smytho, of Hanover, formerly minister
to Libei?ia and now president of the Ne?
gro Reformatory, will" be made president
and Samuel Harris, of "Wllllumsburg, Va.,
will bo made first vice-president. R. T.
H-ili,- of .'this city, cashier of the True Re?
formers- Bank; has b?jwi asked to act as
the treasurer, Tito' secrotury has not as
yet been selected, but it Is undrstood
he will be ?from this'city. The name of
Prof. D.' Webster Davis boa been men?
tioned for this position.
Among the representative colored men
from the different States who have-con?
sented to act on tho board' of directors
are as follows: Judge D, Augustus
