At Lake Kilby the water began ris? ing six indies an hour. Then most of the big flood gates were raised. That caused Ihe water to back up Into the hydraulic pump-house. The turbine wheel was stopped. The waves rose 6everal feet high on the lake. Fifteen feet, of the smokestack was blown down, crashing through the boil? er-house roof and jus; missing the steam pipe.

Now that Will Scott has been sen? tenced to a penitentiary term of is years, nnd it doesn't affect him wheth? er he talks or not, ho is just as un? communicative as before. Scott claims he does not remember cutting Jones any other person. That Is what he said at. the coroner's Inquisition, and goes to strengthen the theory that he was drunk.

(By Telegraph to Virginian-Pilot.) Tromsoe, Norway. Aug. IS.?Walter Wellmnn and the survivors of the polar expedition, led by him, arrive! li re this evening on the steamer Capelln, having successfully completed their ex? plorations in Franz Joseph Land. Mr. Wellmnn has discovered important new lands and many islands. AN ARCTIC TRAGEDY, The expedition brings a grim story of J arctic tragedy. In the autumn of i^ris an outpost, called Port McKinley, wan established ill latitude SI. Tt was a house buill of rocks and roofed over with walrus hide. Two Norwegians, Paul BJocrvlg and Pert Benlzecn, the: latter of whom was with Nansen on th' Frnm, remained there. T'n - main party wintered In a can? vas-covered hut. called Harnwworth House, a: Cape Tegeihofr, on the south? ern point ?>f Hall's Island, latitude sn. About the middle of February, before tili- rise of the sun to its winter height, Mr. Wellmnn, with three Norwegians and forty-live d.>;rs, started North. I: was the earliest sledge Journey on re? cord in that high latitude. LONG VIGIL BESIDE THE DEAD. On reaching Fori McKinley, Mr. Wellmnn found Benixcen dead, but BJocrvlg, according to promise, had ! kept the body In ihe house, sleeping \ beside it through two months of arctic darkness. Notwithstanding his terrible experience, the survivor was safe and che? rful. Pushing northward through rough Ice and severe storms, with a continuous temperature for ten days between 4't and 50 degrees below zero, the parly found new lands north of Fr.lom Is? land, where Nansen landed In 1895. By the middle of March all hands were confident of reaching latitude *7 or SS, if not the Pole it*. !,. SUCCESSION OF DISASTERS. Then began a succession ?'f disasters. Mr. Well man, while leading the party, fell into a snow-covered crevasse, serl i otisly injuring one of his legs and i oin I polling a retreat. Two day.- later the j party was roused at midnight by an Ice-quake under them, due i" pressure. In a few moments many dogs were crushed and the sledges destroyed, The members of the expedition narrowly . caped with their lives, though they managed to save their precious sleep? ing bans, and some dogs ami provis? ions. FORCED MARCH OVER THE ICE. On Mr. Well man's condition becom? ing alarming, as inflammation set In, the brave Norwegians dragged him en a. sledge, by forced ma relies, nearly two hiiinlr.il miles to headquarters, ar? riving tln re early 1 st April. Mr. Well man is still unable to walk, and will probably be permanently crippled. After renching headquarters other members of the expedition explored re. gioits hitherto unknown, and Importi an: scientific work was clone by Lieu? tenant Evelyn B. Baldwin, of the United States Weather Bureau; Dr. iMu ml llofman, et" Grand Haven, Mich, and A. Harlan, >>r the United States Const Survey. N< ' TRACE ' >K ANDRE.

I was immediately struck with the similarity of his hand? writing, and that of tho bordereau, and, forthwith, 1 had the letters of Ester hazy, which were in my possession, photographed, ami showed tho photo? graphs to Major Du I'aty do Clam and M. Ucrtlllon (the handwriting expert), hot ween August 25th and September 5 th. "M. Rertillon said 'That is tho writ? ing of the bordereau.' "M. Ucrtlllon tried to discover where I had obtained the handwriting, hot tii" only Information l Imparted was that it was current and recent handwriting. M. Bertlllon then suggested that it was a tracing, and ended by saying that if it was current handwriting it could only have emanated from some whom the Jevv? had been exercising for a year in Imitating the writing of the bordereau. ESTERHAZY WROTE THE BOR? DEREAU. "When 1 saw beyond a doubt that the handwriting of tho bordereau was Esterhaxy's ami. seeing that the docu? ments mentioned therein might have been supplied by Esterhazy, that the words, -I am going to tin- manouevres' could perfectly well apply to Esterhar.y and that Estcrhazy had secretaries at his disposal to copy a document so vol? uminous as the tiring manual. I resolv? ed to consult the secret dossier and sec what part of the treachery might bo ascribed to Dreyfus and to assure my? self whether the dossier contained any? thing Indicating Estcrhazy. WAS STUPIF1ED. "I frankly admit I was stuplfled on reading the secret dosse r. 1 expected to And matters of gravity therein, and found, in short, nothing but a do, u ment which might apply as much to Esterhaxy as to Dreyfus, an unimport? ant document mentioning D'Avignoh, and a document which it seemed ab? surd to apply to Dreyfus, namely, tiie 'Cette canaille de D?' document. ??Easily.

"Be fore starting to see General Gonse I copied a Hole, four pages In length. i which I made September l. .tthlnlng my resume of Ihe Esterhaxy affair. "When l Informed General Gens - of all w ho h had occurred be n marked: ???So a mistake has been made." "After my inti rvlew with Ol use I did not work tiny Inngi r on my Initiative. I said nothing more until the return of General Gonse, September 15. Ai that lime Est er hazy was at the Grand Manoeuvres." A SIGNIFICANT HINT. Describing his Interview with Gen? eral House. September 13, Plcquart said: "When I asked General Gonse for permission to continue the Investi? gation, Insisting on th.- danger of al? lowing the Dreyfus family to proceed with their Investigation alone, th.- Gen? eral replied that it was Impossible in his opinion, -and in tho opinion of Gen? eral do Bolsdefrc nntl the Minister of War p. re-open the affair. When I pressed the point In order to make Gen? eral Gonse understand that nothing could prevent its re-opening it If he < mild believe Dreyfus was Innocent, General G?ns., replied: ???!!? you say nothing, nobody will know." DENOUNCED AS ABOMINABLE. "G. neral. I replied firmly, 'Whal you tell me Is abominable. I do nbt know what I shall do. Hut I won't carry tins so, r. t with me!' " (Great sensation." "I at once left the room," added the witness. "That is what occurred, I know my account is disputed, hut I positively swear it." said Plcquart, as he emphatically smote Hie bar in front of the witness box. and looked in the direction of the Generals.

Then turning to the distant mission upon which he was dispatched, Plc quart described the irritation he felt when he saw he was being removed because he was no longer wanted us head of the Intelligence Department. Ho explained that if this disgraco had been frankly avowed it would have been much less painful to him. The Colonel also said that during bis alt? s' n< o his correspondence was tampered with. . Colonel Jouaust (president of the court), having asked for explanations on certain points, Plcquart said: "If 1 tell you ail this, gentlemen, it is to show what must have been the mental attitude towards me of the members of the court-mnrt'lal which tried Estcrhazy."

REPORT SUBMITTED Tu SOUTH CAR' ?LINA MASS-MEETING. (By Telegraph to Virginian-Pilot.) I Groonw.I. S. C, Aug! IS.?Several i hundred white men met at Mount Mn j riah Church t?-day to hear a. rcnorl front tin' committee appointed to inves? tigate tie- recent outrages committed on negroes in the Mount Mar.ah sec? tion and elsewhere. lien. .1. M. Galnes, for the commit? tee, stated that no effort had been ? made to excuse or shield any one, but that diligent Inquiry had failed to elicit Information suflleient t-j recom? mend the arrest of any one. The li:.-t case was that >>f a negro who it was reported was organizing a i plot against Phoenix and one who it Is i though) took part In the ambushing j last fall. The second was found to b.. ! a personal matter between a white man and a negro. Tile third was one in which two wo? men wrre concerned. The fourth was that of thr. e negro men and grew out of a reported tres? pass on n white man's crop and so on down the list. There was only hip ease for which they could no: tin.I -a cause and that was the Unmerciful beating of Jake Riehn rdsnn. Negroes -appeared before the meeting to give ? \. Idenee, but many of them were afraid to tell the names of the white men who inflicted the punish? ment. The me. ring evidently thought the c immittee had not been as thorough as it might have been In the Investiga? tion, and several of the negroes who h id been whipped, and who were pres? ent, w.re called for and questioned, first having been pledged protection by the white people by n unnnlmous rising \.>:e. for any Information they might give that would had to the arrest of at least some of the guilty parties. The tales they told were harrowing in the extreme, especially is this true of old man Jake Richardson, as he told how they dragged him from -a sick bed, beat him. then assaulted Iiis wife. No one who looked in his face doubted the truth of his statement, but unfortunate? ly he would not divulge the names of any of his assailants. Five other negroes gave evidence against Joe Jones, jess,. Cnuley, Wil? liam Wilson and Robert McCaslan, all white men, BUfllcIent to warrant their arrest and the sheriff will execute pa? pers against them at once. All the ev? idence went to show that there was a dozen or more of the whitecappers, and* still others may lie arrested. BERKLEY. The storin that has been rasing in this section for three days, continues, ami while the le.-s of property in the town so far has been very small, there Is still some fear that we are not en? tirely free from danger. i'p until a kite hour last night the damAge was confined t.? stripping the tin roof off the conl bid a: foot of chest? nut street, tearing away about twelve fee: of the shed in front of the Berkley block, corner Chestnut and Pine streets, up-rooting and twisting several shade trees and laying lint a number of yard fences. The large elm treo nt the fur nt>r of R?rklev a.vanna und sie. ooil street that was cut around when laying ttie curb stone, was up rooted Wednes? day afternoon about n o'clock and lodg? ed against another tree, leaving Just room enough for the street car's lo pass under it.

Virginia street, from Sharp to Clifton, was Hooded and the water stood sev? eral inches on the lloors of some resi? dences in that section, it was said that one gentleman had a bucket gang engaged in bailing tiie tide out of h,s house. Cummer's saw mill plant was flooded with water from half h s to knee deep, and a lot of lumber that was not rack ed washed away. The gale was driving a two-masted schooner, ihe "Nellie," of New York, on the shore so rapidly that she threw out her anchor and stopped .across the Chestnut street ferry slip, which de? tained the City of Norf.dk about an hour nnd a half, and when her anchor was broken loose it caught in the Southern Slates 'phone cable between Berkley and Norfolk and broke it. The abutment to this eml ??!' Campo stelln bridge was washed away Thurs? day night, and travel from the country to Norf.dk by that way has been aban? doned and turned through Berkley. BREVITIES.

Mrs. Williams: " How is it, Doctor, thai you who always object so strongly to patent medicines, make an exception of Kipans Tabulcs? Aren't you rather inconsi.-Jent ?'* Doctor Bruwn : "Not in the least, Mrs. Williams. Every disease manifests itself i? several different stapes, one after another. When any one is suffering from digestiv? disorder he usually imagines it is a very simple matter instead of a very complicated one, and makes the mistake of relying ujion some single drug which only affects one stage of the complaint, leaving the others to take care of themselves or develop inta something wo.-.e than the original trouble. * "Ari intelligent physician aims at a progressive course of treatment to meet tho different phases of a case, step by step, each with if. appropriate remedy, and heats tha disease at each successive point of attack, so that when the final symptoms arc over, come, the disea.se is thoroughly routed. Physicians recommend Ripsns Tabulcs be? cause they are compounded upon this very principle of overcoming disease progressively, "In nervous indigestion or costivencss the Tabulcs act successively upon tha different organs involved and overcome each symptom in turn. Headache, sour stem, ach and nervous depression arc relieved almost immediately. The bowels are affected more graduallv but surely and thoroughly; anil what i- of more account, the relief and benefit to the entire system i> permanent. That is what physicians call scientific cure.
