He will vole for Tyler for United States Senator in pursuance of the choice expressed by his constitu? ents in to-day's primary.

There was much feeling in Isle of Wight during the progress of to-day's primary. The Shands-Bradshaw folks had urged their followers not to vote. Tho Boykin-Jones men were trying to bring out the electors. Colonel C. F. Day told me over the ?phono that he had not ho.yd from all the precincts and could not estimate the county's vote accurately. He said there were perhaps SoO to ti"0 ballots east. The vote in Smlthfleld was heavy. Bain kept, people home in the interior dis? tricts. All the votes practically were for Boykin and Jones, Sliands and Brad shaw had directed that their names be not. printed on the olllcial tickets. The Boykin men would consider fiOO a good sized vote tinder existing conditions. In Smithtield there was not a big dif? ference between the vote of Boykin and Jones. At Carrsvillc Boykin ran ahead of Jones more than two to one, the vole being 30 to 14. Most of the precincts are so remote from telegraph and telephone wires thtBT it is impossible to give detailed re? turns. PARTED FROM GIRD WIFE. It appears that the reunion of Mr. Victor H. Page and his lfi-year-old wife ie no nearer accomplishment now than it was when he came to Suffolk some days ago to consult counsel, it looks like their separation is final. Hurricane Branch was to-day a visit? or at the home of Mr. Job Holland, whose daughter Mrs. Pope is, on olll? cial business. "Mrs. Pope waa seen and said she wasn't going to live with her busband any more. Her father was present during the conversation. Mrs. Pope delivered to Hurricane Branch all clothing, jewelry, &c., given her by Pope, and requested its delivery at Mr. Pope's home. Mr. Pope wan not there. The young wife's property will be sent her. It looks like reconciliation is im? possible. Proceedings for divorce may? be instituted. A DASH FOR FREEDOM. Made sure that his "flock was saved, but dreading his eighteen yeans' work in State'? prison, Will Scott, murderer, last night made a desperate dash fo? freedom. He had nearly dug his way to starlight when Deputy Norflcet's blood hounds barred the way, and stood like determined sentinels before their prisoner till daylight brought their master. Enclosed in a steel-encased cell, it seemed like a forlorn hope on Scott's part to even attempt egress. But Scott was desperate. He began work on the cement .floor, and dug down beneath the ?steol lining till the outer hriek wall was reached. Then it was easier trav? eling. He had removed enough bricks to look into the night, but the aperture wasn't big enough for his body. At that stake the blond hounds gathered before the hole, ready to pounce upon their victim if hin head came through. Deputy Norfleet had heard a noise early in the night, but could not locate it. Scott's Inside work was so well concealed that it took some poarch to learn just where he had broken through the cement. Scott was hurried away to the pen? itentiary this afternoon. Since the commutation of first degree murder to Imprisonment sentiment against him had grown stronger, and there wan talk of violence. The feeling was accentu? ated by possibility of escape.
