The honor of having a man-of-war
named after one's native or adopted city
is considered by the residents of that
city as highly desirable aud they have
invariably shown their appreciation by
presenting to the craft bearing Its name
a handsome sliver service or other
appropriate testimonial. This shows
cot only the interest taken la the new

fathership as it w. re, but links more

The Navy Department has decided to
name one of the new gunboats to be
built at Newport News after this city,
Wilmington, and H Is but fitting that
the good people of this city should take
cognizance of it. Other cities have done
honor to themselves and their namesake
and Wilmington should not be behind
With this object in view, the Evbnino
Journal has started a subscription list

to ebriaten the new craft when lanncbed.
The Historical Society, Sons of the

The Prosecution Developing Their fuse
With Groat Deliberation.
Bav Francisco, Sept. 7, —The taking
of testimony In the trial of Theodore Du
rant Is proceeding slowly. During tbo
three days In which
on the stand all that has been established
is that Blanche Lament ts dead and that
her tmdy bears marks of violence. Tho
prosecution is not Inclined to make speed,
wasting time In unnecessary queries.
Ou tin, other hand, tho defendants seem
to be threading uncertainties and search
ing for technicalities. In tho cross exami
nation of witnesses the defendant's attor
neys oontlnutilly throw out Ashing lines,
hoping to catch a discrepancy In the testi
mony. They are diligently seeking Haws,
but ns yet have not found anything.
Tho police and detectives are still gath
ering testimony to strengthen tbe prose
cution. It Is now said that tho defense
will rely largely on tho Improbability of
tbo prosecution proving its oaso beyond
any doubt. Tho witnesses In the trial
Friday wore introduced by the prosecution
to complete tho evidence that Blanche La
mont was murdered.
Poltcmimn Rieht, who accompanied De
tective Gibson to Emanuel church on the
day Blanche Lament's Ixsly was discover
ed, testified to tiio condition of tho corpse
and to tho presence of blood on tho flixir
near the girl's lielid on the belfry stairs
and on the floor, where It bad dripped
from tho steps. Ho stated there was no
evidence of a struggle there, tho Inference
being developed by the defense that tho
murder was committed down stairs, Igit
tho body was carried to tho tower.
Tho defense will try to show that one
man could not have Ixirno this burden un
aided. Tho prosecution will try to provo
that Blanche weighed only 110 ixinndfk
and that Durant could have carried her
with little difficulty.
C. G. Noblo, undo of Blanche was an*
called by the district attorney to again es
tablish the blent ideation of hie nieou both

A Brother Hears of Ills Sister, Who DUapv
peered Twelve Years Ago,
Philadelphia, Sopt. 7. —Miss Ella Sil
lier, who unaccountably disappeared from
her homo in this city 13 years ago, liras
boon found by her relatives in the parson
of Mrs. Thomas Drover of (11H Beverly
street, Richmond. When Miss Silber dis
appeared, she was 31 years old, and her
life theretofore had been such us t<> make
tho case Inexplicable. Tbo newspapers of
tbe country ami the police of every largo
olty were furnished with her description,
ami a thorough search was made, but no
clew was obtained, and she was given up
as dead.
A few days ago a gentleman came to tbo
office of a sou of Mr. Silber and asked him
if lie had ever hud a sister named Ulln.
The caller said he was In possession of
the address of the long lost woman ; that
she whs married and living In a southern
city. J. J. Sillier, the brol.be», went to
Richmond and found bis sister.
Tho explanation of her disappearance
Is that she left her home while In n tem
porary lit of nlxitraotlon and wandered
away. Being a fair dressmaker, she se
cured employment, and during the years
of her uiwonce wandered from pluuo to
place. She hits a comfortable homo and
several children of her own and will prob
ably remai n In Richmond.
