the tug Pannie M. Gilbert, was murdered
tl-.ls aiiernoon on Taylor's wharf.
The skull was crushed, and the dying
man toppled over Into the water and dis?
appeared. As the dastard deed was done
In plain view, the horrified people rushed
to save the man from a watery grave,
and so let the murderer escape. When
the dead body was recovered the man
?with the stick had disappeared.
Parry had gotten a Job on the tug thin
While the nature of the auercauon is
not known, there was a war of words.
According to an eye witness, there was
but one blow, and that caught the unfor?
tunate man In the head, blotting out the
epark of life. It was all over In a min?
ute, but the body lay In the slip nearly
twenty minutes before It was lished out
and taken to the morgue.

to get any fresh clue. His slayer wns
named Willis, a fireman on the tug Con?
queror. The dead man wee about? twenty
flvo years old.

patched from here except In the cases of*
the Hathews county and Gloucester
The Old Dominion boats are aoverusea
not to make tho usual trips, and the malls
arc dispatched by West Point, thereby
causing a little delay. No other boats
are reported as off or on that were not
reported yesterday, and the situation Is
not seriously affecting malls or freights.
The Cape Charles route Is open to the
mails as usual, and they have been dis?
patched, despite the fact that nothing
definite was given out yesterday, nnd the
SNfflcials resented questions.

was in the form of an overture from
the Presbytery of Now Orleans, asking
that no proposition be considered hy tho
