(Special to Vlrglnlan-Pllot.)
Richmond, Va., March 30.?The Inter?
est being manifested all over the State
Jn the movement to have a conference
in this city In May for the purpose of
considering methods whereby the peo?
ple may select their candidates for the
United Slates Senate, Is far greater
than that shown In any subject which
Sins Come up In Virginia politics proba?
bly since the proposition to endorse a
Senatorial primary Avas made at the
?Roanoke Convention In 1S97.
Tho call for the conference was sign?
ed by only fifty Democrats. Since U was
Issued It has become apparent that a
hundred times as many signers could
have been obtained with ease. Many of
the best known public men In Virginia
are hastening to put themselves on rec?
ord us favoring tho May conference.
It is_a_f_a,c_t_ quite remarkable that
while numerous men of promlnericeln
the party In Virginia are declaring
themselves as favorable to the confer?
ence, so far as known not one has said
he opposed it. There may be a fight
made to prevent its being productive of
results, but It Is not believed that there
will be open opposition. To fight the
conference means to assume an attitude
of opposition to the election of United
States Senators by the people. There
con bo no question that the great ma?
jority of Democrats of the State nre
opposed to'the continuance of the pres?
ent, method of choosing tho members
of the upper house of tho Federal Con?
gress.
A well known county judge of this
State In a recent letter to a gentleman
In this city expresses the opinion that
the conference will sweep over the State
like a prairlo fire. He thinks the people
are only waiting for a move and that
now it has been made, Virginia will see
a political earthquake.
Tho fact that the- writer speaks of
the call for the conference as a move?
ment to elect Senators by the people is
regarded ns significant. This is not the
object of the conference, but it is real?
ized by those who oppose It that they
Will have great difficulty in making the
public believe that there is a wide dif?
ference between the popular election of
Senators and the ponular selection or
candidates- Those who advocate the
latter say the differenco is so Blight as
to be almost shadowy.
CLEARING THE DECKS.
Governor Tyler to-day decided to is?
sue an (>r<ler revoking the> commissions
of all officers of tho Virginia volun?
teers without commands?that is, those
who by reason of the volunteering of
their commands or portions of them for
service against Spain. lie will also ac?
cept tho resignations of those who have
resigned, ordering such ns nre eligible
to be placed on tho retired list. He
will disband nil organizations that have
fallen below the minimum strength.
All four of the Virginia Regiments
Will be disbanded. It Is not thought
the order will affect the threo com?
panies of the First Regiment which did
jnot volunteer, nor the companies of the
\Fourth that stayed at hemrc?Tito
/order will affect Colonel Greenville
Gaincs, Third Regiment; Lieutenant
Colonel George Wayne Anderson. First
Regiment; Major J. H. Derbyshire.
'First Regiment, and Major Sol. Cut ch?
ins, of the Blues battalion.
Governor Tyler and Mrs. Tyler and
Miss Lily will go to the Governor's
farm, in Pulnskl county, to-morrow, to
be gone several days.
SECRETARY I.OXC, HERE.
Hon. George D. Long, Secretary of
the Navy, accompanied by Mrs. Dong,
his daughter, and his physician, Dr.
Rlxly, spent several hours In the city
to-day, arriving here at 7 o'clock this
morning on the lighthouse tender Jes?
samine. The party returned to Old
Point this afternoon.
8eoretary Long, who Is an early riser,
was prepared to land when the Jessa?
mine tied up to the Clyde Line wharf,
and he at once dispatched a man up
town to secure him a carriage. This
was quickly forthcoming, and the par?
ty, shortly before S o'clock, started out
on a tour of the? city. The party called
on Gov. Tyler and paid their respects.
SHIPYARD VISITED.
The drive was extended until nearly
12 o'clock, when the Secretary sudden?
ly appeared at tho offices of the W. R.
Trlgg Company, on Cary street, where
ho was received by Mr. Trlgg and taken
through tho shops.
MoanWhllo, over in the yard, all was
activity. Some time ago n requisition
was made for a United States flag, but
It has not yet come to band, and when
Information was received that Secre?
tary Long was In town the superintend?
ent began to cast about to sei uro n
flag. One was borrowed from a B thooh
er, a .pole was hastily erected, and wh< n
the Secretary crossed tho bridge lead?
ing to the yard the stars and stripes
were waving in the breeze. Under, the
guidance of Mr. Trlgg and the govern?
ment officials, who are over-looking the
work, the Secretary and his party made
n. close Inspection of the yard.
PNEUMATIC PRO< !ES3.
Nothing escaped his eye, and be
showed the deepest interest In all the
work. The pneumatic process of rivet?
ing and drilling seemed to engage his
attention especially. Although the
party reached tho yard at the dinner
hour, the men did pot -stop, putting oft
eating until the Secretary left.
The Secretary was Introduced to all
the officials' in the yard, and had a
pleasarfl word or a smile for each.
With a view of seeing how the voy?
age had affected their weight the party
got on the ecalcs just put in position
In the yard. The Secretary registered
197 pounds.
"You liavo lost three pounds," re?
marked Dr. Rlxley, with a smile.
Mrs. Long weighed 122 pounds and
Miss Long a hundred and nine.
TUB RETURN TRIP.
The Secretary finlnhed his Inspection
shortly before 1 o'clock, and the party
eoon afterwards boarded the Jessa?
mine, and etarted on their return trip.
Secretary Long said he might stop over
at Newport News and go through the
yard thero to-morrow.
He appeared to bo In the best of
health. He had nothing to say beyond
that he was enjoying his trip, and that
ho was much pleased with the show?
ing made by the W. R. Trlgg Ship?
building Company.
GEN. HENRY DOUGLAS.
Brigadier General Henry Douglas has
just returned from Cuba and spent the
morning in Richmond en route to his
farm, near Lester Manor. He left Cuba
Sunday.
He attracted much attention on the
street, his tall figure clad in the undress
blue uniform of his rank and sur?
mounted by a broad palmetto bat of
flno texture.
General Douglns Is very popular here
and was cordially greeted by his friends
at every turn.
He pays General Fltzhugh Lee is the
most popular man in Cuba, and the only
om? whose opinions aro valued much by
the natives
LEE A GOVERNOR.
General Douglas feels sure that Leo
will bo made a military governor of one
of the three provinces into which the
War Department will divide the Inland.
I.eo hnd a conference Saturday with
the Secretary of War in regard to
Cuban affairs and his cordial relations
with th<> Cubans makes him very useful
to the government In the mixed condi?
tion of affairs there now.
General Douglas does not give a rosy
report of the progress of Cuba toward a
stable government, indeed, little has
bee been done of a practical nature,
the army waiting for the people to set?
tle down and the people waiting for the
army to do something.
NO MILITARY PROBLEM,
uenerai Douglas says the military
problem was settled long ago, that the
troops should be reduced to a smaller
number and those scattered at points
all over the island as a guard, that civil
government should be rapidly establish?
ed In the towns and military control be
reduced to the minimum.
This, he thinks, would be the first
practical and effective move towards
a rc-establlshmcnt of, the Island.
General Douglas was appointed by
President McKinley a Brigadier of Vol?
unteers nnd by his retirement from the
service the army loses ono of Its finest
soldiers.
General Douglas Will return to Rich?
mond to-morrow and will then visit
Washington before returning to his
homo in Baltimore.
He says Mrs. Fitzhugh Lee nnd fam?
ily left Havana yesterday for the
United States nnd will pay a visit In
Washington before coming to Rich?
mond.
They will probably pass through
Richmond to-morrow.

TOWN OF SUFFOLK
Colored People to Organize Home
Club For Protection.
How It Came About ? Iforlneru
Wenthvr? Attempt to Brenk Jail
On the estate Llne-A. Pretty Race?
Personal?
(Special to Vlrglnlan-Pllot.)
Suffolk, Va., MaTch SO.?With few
friends and not money enough to buy
his sliroud the body of Tom Jones, who
was stabbed to death by a one-armed
negro in a saloon, was laid away in a
shallow grave, nearby a little branch,
not far from tbe grounds of the Suf?
folk Fair Association, by a colored un?
dertaker. Ho could not have been ex?
pected to put the victim out of sight
In any great style, for the county had
to pay the price. It was a very small
price.
To-day they burled him over again.
Down through the mud and yellow
clay they dug till the box was found,
and rescued from Its bed of cold, mud?
dy water.
The corpse was lying in soak. It
was almost entirely covered with wa?
ter. The top of the face, a portion of
the body and toes stuck through the
sloppy moss In a sickening way. The
remains were put into a more decent
collln and hauled over to Cedar 11111.
There was a little wreath of fern laid
over tho casket. There was no proces?
sion to follow the hearse; there were
no mourners. The Rev. J. F. Love,
of the Baptist Church, made a prayer
at the grave.
HOW IT CA MR ABOUT.
Suffolk people feel Tor strangers de?
spite their poverty and fricndlessness.
They have hearts. When it was learn?
ed how the victim was hidden there
were many offers of contributions to
have a disinterment. Messrs. George
T. Kellam and J. I). Matthews went
around and collected about $28. Mr.
lt. W. Baker charged for the coftln.
hearse, &c, J21. The balance was
turned over to the widow, who will
need It to rear her young children, In?
valid that she Is.
HOME COLORED CLUB.
A well-known colored man said to?
day that the organization of a homo
colored club, whose members would
be confined to natives or long-time
residents of Suffolk, was being discuss?
ed. One of the club's objects would be
the protection of the reputations of its
members and all other good Suffolk
people of color.
Whether the club be organized or not
It is indisputably true that the repu?
tation of the colored population is fre?
quently hurt by the acts of law-break?
ers, whose homes are elsewhere. A
very large proportion of criminals ar?
rested and tried in Suffolk are strangers
or persons who havo come from a dis?
tance and nre stopping here tempora?
rily. The frequent recurrence of crime
reflects unjustly on negro citizenship.
As a whole there la not a better nor
more law-abiding community of col?
ored people In the South than reside In
Suffolk. It Is a deplorable condition
that their reputation should be ma?
ligned by reason of misdeeds done by
tho floating class of visiting criminals.
THE WEATHER UP NORTH.
Mr. It. B. Dumvllle has a letter from
his sls-.ter, Mrs. H. E. Thompson, of
Newburgh, N. Y., in which was writ?
ten during a snow storm- That was
March "S. Ho had another letter at
tho same time from Sam. Dumvllle,
Esq., nt West Cape, Prince Edward Is?
land, In which it Is said there are pros
pects for an early spring. The ice is
rapidly breaking in the Gulf of St.
Lawrence.
TliTED AND FAILED.
Joe Sykes and Arnold Carr made an
attempt to break Jail at Courtland day
before yesterday. Deputy J. T. Whlt
ley heard about It in time to stop them.
An ally from the outside had given
them tools with which they expected to
remove the Jail door fastenings.
ON THE STATE DINE.
^ A deed with many signatures, whose
'consideration is $225, was nut on re?
cord at the Couuty Clerk's ofllce to-day.
Alfred Parker and wife, Loulsanna;
William B. Parker and wife, Christian,
and Gertrude A. Savage, of Gates coun?
ty, N. C, and A. T- King and wife,
Sarah E.; James T. Horton and wife,
Josephine Endler, of Nansemond coun?
ty, Va,, conveyed to William D. Sav?
age, of Gates county, 100 acres of land,
half in Virginia and half in North
Carolina. The five shares transferred
include five-sixths of the farm at which
the late William T. Savage died.
A PRETTY RACE.
The race for Mayor of Suffolk is a
pretty one. Despite a field of four, all
of whom are working hard to win, the
best feeling Is being maintained among
the asrdrants. They meet voters and
meet each other and Joke a little, but
tho candidates are still cood friends.
One candidate has spoken of hiring a
brass band If ho win and have It play
a "Home. Sweet Home," serenade to
those who are chosen to stay home a
while longer- Candidate Hosier has
Kotten out a prayer In which he tells
why he should b<> Mayor, with a foot
note declaring, perhaps, he "shall not
pass this way again."
EASTER EGG HUNT.
The Ministering Children's League of
St. Paul's Episcopal Church expect to
have a good time next Monday. They
will have an Etistcr egg- hunt on the
church grounds- All members are ex-,
pected to come and enjoy the occasion.
THEY MAKE GOOD PEANUTS.
Suffolk peanut factories are now put?
ting up some of the prettiest goods ever
placed In the market. Desalte the
youthfulness of the plants they are
shipping good nuts and a whole lot of
them. A Plttsburg firm a few days
ago told a Suffolk man ho hnd used
peanuts from Smlthfleld nnd Norfolk,
but a lot lately received from the Nan?
semond Lumber Company was one of
the best he ever saw. The gentleman j
who was told was not In the peanut
business.
