"It will take but a moment to pass the rcsolution," said Davls. "I havo had a number of such re quosls. nnd T must Inslst on tho regular order." replied Iieyburn. The following afternoon. when Hey. burn introduced his resolutlon concern? lng the story to the effect that the Cjistom house nt Newport News. Vlr plnia, -would be cloaed on T.ce's birth? day. Davis said: "I object:" nnd ln explanation of hls actlon stated: "Mr, President. I slmply objected for the Tuirpose of showing- thc Sonator from Jrlaho how easy it ls to object. I now j ?withdraw my objectlon tn sliou- hlm the senatorial courtesy that ho denied me yesterday." There now is the casus belll. ,7eff intends to get even.

DLD PIpIECJeT BflOUGHTTBUfiHT [Spoclal Cable to Tlie Tlmes-Dlspatch.J London, January 22.?A hundred years ago, in Devonshirc, llved au cx traordlnary woman, Joanna Southcott. From a domestlc servant she became a prophetess. she deciared that shu had supernatural gifts, wrlting and dtetailng propliecles and gatherlng to? gether 100,000 adherents. Now, when this strange woman's claims arc wcll nlgh forgotten, a woman writer, Allce Seyniour, whom "sileneu can hold no longer," declarcs tn two remarkable volumes Just publlshed, called "Thc Express." Nos. 1 and 2, that the world is on thc cve of Jbarina Soutlicott's predlctlons coming true. The dramatlc fcaturc of the proplie? cles Is that Joanna Southcott scaled up a box onc hundred year.s ago. It was carefully corded. From that day to thls tho box, of whlch n photograph appears In tho first volumo of tho book. has Vemalned unopened. The prophotbss said that tliis box should not be tampercri witWk untll lt was called for by the blsliops. Its opening, It ls said. wlll couvlnco tho nation of tho trutli of thc vlsitatlon which she predlcted. Proof or Her Claims. Whal Joanna Southcott said, ac? cording to a writer of theso books. Is that, beginning In tho fourth year of this century, dlvlhe proof would bo given that her claims wcrc super? natural. Since 1901, lt ls polnted out, "records havo followed records." Thero have been great flnoji-: and storms, record droughts, and six great earth qiiakes In two years. "The fabrlc of the carth I'll shako!" j This phrasc, used by the prophetess many tlmes, ia taken by the authoress to apply to tlie great carthciuakos otll minating in the Messlna disuster. Thls great earthquake was definitcly fore told. adds tho writer. Joanna South? cott, sho says, wroto, "When tho ninth hour dld appear, mark well thc .shock that all tho earth did bear." The earth? quake took placo, she says, on Docoiu ber 29. "when the sands of the nlnth hour hnd nearly run." jVIso, she uf firms, the prophecy, "tho shock that all tlie earlli did bear," is borno out by the fact that practically all count.rics contrlbiiled to help ? the nufferers by thc disaster. VIxitnHiiu in Stninue Wentlier. Tlio vlsitatlon would come in strango weather, tlu- prophetess also foretold. "Every one has been compelled to no : tlco tho strango phenomena in tlie weather durlng tho last four years," commants tlie authoress. "How serl I ously trade has been afCeeted and how | sudden and severo havo hccn tho sur prlses of climatic chango and remark I able records of temperature." I "When thc Eastern war appenrs. tlion know tho end is near," wrote Joanna Soutlicott. This^.says tlie , writer, ret'ers to tho great war be j tweon Russia and Japan. The prophe? tess also doclared that England, "u.n ' lielioVIng," would bo smltteii wftli slckness. "All over England," says the authoress, "doctors havo recently been almost worked to death." The curious tltle of tho two volumes ls due to tho fact tliat Joanna South-. cott lald down that the nations should "be warned In tivo oxprossos, to bc publlshed by the hand of a woman, ln i tho tonth year." ? . $fjuUrt>$r;r. anb HLiUc &tack.
