horrified at the extent of the destitu?

"I'll" situation of affairs In Cuba is by
no means exaggerated. The poor, fee-I
blc women and children, with starva?
tion in their faces, touched mo most.
No one. no matter who, could make
that journey with change in Iiis pocket j
and withhold it from these poor crea-[
Hires. They got all the change I had.
I told Cen. Brooke and Hen. Lee of I
what I had seen, and begged them to
send relief to those people also, if I
were in charge of the army in Cuba I
would not surfer those conditions
continue a day."

Honey Ortler From Kngtnuda
Itoanoke, Va? Feb. 1.?Further par?
ticulars of the killing of Milton Wade,
in Franklin county, as reported In to?
day's Times, shows that It was a most
cold-blooded murder. The victim was
a quiet and inoffensive man. employed
on the farm of Mr. Peter Sounders,
near Cnllaways, a few miles west of
Itocky Mount, lie was found dead in
Iiis workshop a short distance from his
house, with his head crushed by a
blow from behind.
Irvine Fisher, tlie? young man who la
under arrest charged with the murder,
denies that he committed it.
_ T1II-: BLOODY A N 10.
It Is stated, however, that Fisher bor?
rowed an axe on the farm, and when
he returned it there was both blood
and hair on the head of the axe. AS
far as known Milton Wade and b'lshi r
were friendly, and nothing had been
noticed by those who saw them to?
gether on the day of the murder to
indicate that lin y were hot on the besi
of terms. Fisher culled at Wade's
house on the afternoon of the 20th and
called him out. They walked off to
gether ami went to Wade's workshop,
disappearing inside.
Wade not returning, his family sup?
posed he had gone away with Fisher
for some purpose, and his body was not
found until search was made early next I
morning,
STRUCK FROM BEHIND.
The position of the dead man shows]
that he was struck unawares from he
hind, as there was no indication of a
struggle, and he lay with one hand in a
pocket of his trousers. When Fisher
was arrested he was at work on a farm
near by.
He admitted being with Wade at the
hour named above, but said lie left him
at work in the shop, and that when he
came away he met a strange man going!
in that direction.
Phe murdered man leaves a Wife and
four children.

him Is strong.

Petersburg, Va.. Feb. 1.?Mr. William
Gill, residing on Cross street, met with
ii painful accident this morning at the
Petersburg Iron Works, where he was
engaged tit work. He was at the time
assisting in putting up a new smoke?
stack, when he accidentally fell from

cents per bushel. Other property

HOME FROM CUBA.
Mr. Benjamin Stewart arrived home
from Cuba last night, having been hon?
orably discharged from service in Com?
pany K. Fourth Virginia Regiment.
Congressman Epes, from this district,
will give bis hearty support to Hon.
Joseph W. Bailey for the leadership of
the Democratic party in the House of

There is a great scarcity of wood at
present in Petersburg. Recent demands
from Richmond for fuel along the lines
of our railroads have Interfered with
tie- supply naturally coming to our city.
The city has no wood for the poor and
consumers generally find it difficult to
have their orders promptly Wied.
PROPOSED NEW BANK.
It Is rumored that a movement Is on
foot to establish another bank In. this
city; that much encouragement hns
been quietly given to'the scheme, and
that some definite action in that direc?
tion may be taken at tin early day.
Petersburg lias two first-class banks,
but a third would be welcomed.
A line reading-room was formally op?
ened Monday night on West Washing?

newspapers and magazines will be kept

institution Is for the benefit of the pub?
lic of that section, it Is designed chiefly
as an attraction for young men and as
n place of pi. as.ml resort for them in
the evening.
