FREIGHT TONNAGE INCREASING VIA DISMAL SWAMP CANAL The Dlsmnl Swamp Canal 1s now nn actunl working fact nnd the tldo of travel by this roiute Is rapidly Increas? ing, several of the largest lumber tow? ing firms of Baltimore and Philadelphia, riuick to see the advantages of a. deep water route, having engaged their tow? age via this route, the chief gain being (he ability to load through cargoes in North Carolina entire, where heretofore they could take on but a part cargo in North Carolina and were obliged to top load after gse'ttlns into Virginia waters. This is now done away with and results In a great saving. Two tugs are now plying regularly on the canal, towing freights for the canal company. These are the John Taxis and A. B. Coving ton, the ngoncy of the canal having been transferred to Uurts-fin _______ who themselves do a large lumber tow? ing business, niul have their own mills In North Carolina, whose output Is car? ried via Norfolk to Baltimore and Philadelphia, while the siiiD stuff for the ship-yard In which the firm Is in? terested In Bethel, Del., is also, to some extent, brought by them from North Carolina.

The Police Court Hears the Testi? mony of an Experti He Explains for the rtetiom or Court _.nn?l Attorneys How t?o tJniuo 1? rinyoU-Juitilco Tomlln Reserve? Ills Iloolston?other Cases, Practically admitting the moral guilt of his clients, the alleged policy shop operators, Judge D. Tucker Brooke, in the Police Court yesterday morning, told Justice Tomlln that the police de? partment und the Commonwealth's At? torney hadn't made out a case, and that tho accused were technically In? nocent, no matter what might be the conviction of the Justice from the evi? dence adduced- The corpus delicti had not been proved, said Judge Brooke. Admitting that the Commonwealth had proven that tho accused sold policy tickets, It had never bex'u shown that they had promo-ted a lottery, or con? duced one. The absence of proof of the wheels, un absolutely necessary part nnd parcel of policy playing, was the all Important link left out In the case, uncording to Judge Brooke. He said, however, it was not the fault of the police that this could not be secured. For all that the witnesses had said, it would be possible to surmise that the policy men sold fake tickets and ran a make-believe lottery. If so. Judge Brooke said, they are probably amena? ble to the laws on a cheating and swindling charge, but not on the charge brought. Judge Brooke's argument was based solely upon these grounds. From ills position it would seem that the wheels of justice are clogged In these cases until the policy wheels are shown to exist nnd connection made between them and the accused. Chief . Kizer says lie knows where these wheels were formerly kept. But they are In the county, outside the city's jurisdiction. George Taylor was the first of the policy men to be arraigned. He plead not guilty and four witnesses for the police department were sworn. Com? monwealth's At torney Duncan appeared for the prosecution. AN "EXPERT" TESTIFIES. A colored man named James Fitchett gave expert testimony as to the work? ings of a policy shop. He knew the technicalities of the game, and Com? monwealth's Attorney Duncan not un? derstanding these as well ns the wit? ness, was forced time and again to ask for explanations. Fitchett explained that policy playing was done by means of a wheel, filled with tubes or quills. In which wero rolled small pieces of paper with numbers. Twenty-four num? bers go to make up a policy game. When less than this number the game is called a lottery. The distinction is a peculiar one to those not of the fraternity, but Judicial cognizance was taken thereof, Fitchett being on the stand as an ex? pert. There were many other things that Fitchett explained as to policy playing and lottery, among them the fact that tho size of a player's prize is not governed alcne by his numbers being drawn, but by the combination in which they are drawn There are severity-eight quills In a wheel. The wheel is turned until twelve of them nre out. The numbers are put down on a slip of paper. A player goes to the shop where he bought the ticket, and if he Is shown to be a winner by this slip of paper he gets his prize. There are generally two drawings each day. A player chcoscs three numbers, and If they should happen to come out of the wheel successively he gets a big prize. A PAID DETECTIVE. The sensation of the trial was the fact, brought out by the counsel for the accused, that James Filzpatrick, a white man, who appeared as a witness in each case, was paid by the police department to secure evidence against tho operators. Fltzputriek had bought policies from each of the accused. He came here from Washington to do this work, which was authorized by the Police Commissioners. ?Xh?-po!lo?-ofHc?ai win marie the raids testified ns to finding the shops In full blast. Money was seized at one or two of tho places. J. J. Welsh, W. F. Taylor and Ed? mund Moore were arraigned In the order mentioned. Tho evidence was about the same In all cases. Judge Brooke was counsel for all of the accused, except Robert I* Taylor, whom Mr. Woodward represented. It developed that Taylor was not the man who ran the place In Yaxley's lane nnd the warrant against him was dismissed. The defense introduced no witnesses, the defendants themselves making no statement. A BOND FORFEITED. Ono of the defendants, Gus Brown, charged with promoting the game with Edmund Moore, In Taylor's lane, near Market Place, did not appear In court. His bond for S2? was signed by Robert Taylor as surety. "Wo would be pleased to have that $2">." said Justice Tomlin to Taylor. Mr. Woodward, counsel for Taylor, asked that he be given time to go out and look for Brown, but he didn't find him. Justice Tomlin forfeited tho bond, at the same time saying he had no power to collect It. lie said he would send it to the Commonwealth's Attor? ney. After hearing the argument Justice Tomlin said ho would render his deci? sion Thursday morning. A stenographic report of the evidence was taken. The men were rcbnlled, but the bonds were increased lo $2.'i0 by Justice Tom? lin, who declared that tho $.">0 bonds taken at the station-house. Saturday were unreasonably low, inasmuch as the offense was punishable by a maxi? mum line of $500 or a year's imprison? ment MINOR POLICE CASES. Probably the largest docket the Po? lice Court has had for several weeks was that of yesterday morning. Among the spectators was a preacher, who ex? changed some warm words with a newspaper man for obstructing his view of the proceedings. The cases dis? posed of were as follows: John Mason, colored, cut Joe Bare field and Henry Bonney, and will be tried Wednesday. Aaron C. Hunter, colored, got drunk and threatened to'cut Mary Hunter, for which he paid $0. Lula Bray, colored, while drunk, abused an officer, and she paid J3.?0 for her fun.

DIED ON STEAM ER. ALEXANDRIA PHYSICIAN FALLS DEAD OF HEART DISEASE. As the steamer was leaving the wharf at Old Point Comfort for Washington, D. C, Saturday night, an elderly gen? tleman, with a satchel In his hand, ran down the wharf and got aboard. As he reached the steamer's saloon he fell suddenly to the floor. A number of gentlemen who were near ran to aid him and a physician, who chanced to be one of the passen? gers did all that was possible, but hu? man skill was unavailing and. as the steamer glided from Old Point, the man's spirit fled. A search of his person disclosed that the dead man was J. W. Bechtcl, M. D., of 207 North Columbus street, Alexan? dria, Va. Dr. Bechtcl ils prominent in the medical circle of his section and the State. He had been spending n few days at Old Point Comfort. On arriv? ing at Alexandria the body was turned over to his friends. RUMORED HOTEL CHANGE. MONTICELLO HOTEL HAS NOT CHANGED MANAGEMENT. For several days rumors have been In circulation stating that negotiations were under way looking to a change of management of the Montlcello Hotel and the departure of Mr. Sylvanus Stokes from Norfolk. Rumor further said last night that the details of the transfer had been completed. A repre? sentative of the Virginian-Pilot called on Mr. Stokes seeking information re? garding this matter. He staled that ru? mor was wrong and that, the hotel has not only not changed management, but is doing a very large and highly satis? factory business. The Montlcello opened its doors to the public September 27, 1S0S, and, as a year and a month have passed, a comparison of months is possible. The business of the house from September 27, 1899, up to last night, shows a trebled business over the opening month of the house, September 27, to October 27, ISPS, and the business for the lirst year has been larger than was anticipated. FOOTBALL. THE BOERS ORGANIZE IN NOR? FOLK. Last evening an enthusiastic meet? ing was held at the Monticollo Hotel i by a number of prominent young men for the purpose of organising a football team. The result of the meeting was that material was gotten together which, after some practice, should de? velop into a team that ought to make a creditable record on the gridiron. The weight of .the eleven is rather lltrht? averaging 135 pounds?but what is lack? ing in that respect will no doubt be counterbalanced by the experience of the gentlemen who form the line-up, and who call themselves Oom Paul's Boers, vis: J.

The verdict was that he enrne to his death from thr> injuries received in the saw mill accident.

Je2C-tf THE OYSTER WAR The Shuckers Issue a Circular to the Public, The Oyster Pitcher* Tithe Exceptions to Statement* Mittle itittl Jlnke De itlnl ?Will Ilrlusr I*nckora Irin? Uitlllmoro?UustllOM nt rt Stnntl? ? IUI. X Regarding this circular, a Virglnlan Pllot representative yesterday called on Messrs. Crosby, Ironmonger and Hem? ingway, to ascertain how they regard? ed it. These gentlemen stated tho cir? cular WS6 filled with erroneous state? ments. The circular _ays, in one portion, "As to the comparative difference in meas? ures, it can he stated that in Iron? monger Bros.' house last season, when the men held up on a monster measure, they agreed to give the (irm ten (10) pints, and on measuring the pot mark? ed it with nine holes where It measured ten (lo) pints, and it then had a quart to spare." Mr. L. M. Ironmonger stated in an? swer to this that nine pints was agreed upon; the firm granted it; the lihuckers' committee that waited on him yesler day (Monday) agreed that it was nine pints, and one of the committee saw and did measure this pot at the begin? ning of the present season, and recog? nized It as the measure they shucked by last season and had agreed to shuck by this season. He said further that U had been thus far satisfactory, and that the shuckers say their only grievance against Ironmonger Bros, in the dis? charging of three of their members. The statement in the circular refer? ring to the Hemingway Packing Com? pany is as follows: "Parties who are now, nnd have been for some time past, employed in a knowing position by the Hemingway Packing Company, and who gave us very valuable Infor? mation on more than one occasion, say that this firm averages forty (HO) gal? lons on a hundred." Regarding this statetment Mr. Hem? ingway said that this claim was er? roneous, and that the shuckers In his houso have no cause of complaint, lie states thai the trouble between his firm and Its shuckers arises out of the dis? charge of certain hands objectionable to it. He considered that tho presence of these men In his house was .a source of friction, and they were therefore dis? charged. Mr. Crosby states that no men were discharged by him until after the men had gone out of his house. Then, on the return of one of their leading men he discharged him. The packers, by their representatives, state that they have decided not to submit, to dlotfttlon, but will conduct their business as they see fit. They state that this is the dull reason In the oyster trade, so it is well that the trouble came now instead of later, when business Is brisk. They state further that in a few days there will be several hundred men com? ing here from Baltimore and other points to take the places of the men who are out. and that after these now! comers arrive they will not be turned off to make places for returning work? men. THE SHUCKERS' SIDE. In addition to statements quoted above the circular, which is signed by C. Poriloek, prrrident, and .!? 11. Crom? well, secretary, of the Oyster Shuckers1 Organization, contains the following: "True Virginians always contend for the majesty of their State's legislative enactments ar.rl the Cromwell Council No. 1 * * slmnly refused to shuck such oysters ns the Sta.te prohibits be? ing caught or roid. while the inspectors, whose positions are obtained by exec? utive authority, sleep, and the Chesa? peake, the Slate police patrol, seem? ingly finds no offenders upon whom to pt-ev." Referring to a proposed reduction in I he price of opening oysters last sea? son, they point nut that by resisting they saved to the business Inleresrt-s^ hero JK0.000. The following are also extracts from Lh"ir circular: "The interests of this section In the trade cannot be denied, hut it is never? theless a fact that business establish? ments of this city arc 'the direct re? cipients of the earnings of the twelve to fourteen hundred openers. A meas? ure is used that is neither recognlzetl by the Nation, the Slate. Cod or the devil, nnd has been termed a 'pot.' and if the Sealer of Weights and Measures were permitted to stamp this unmerci? ful receptacle he would find many ca? pable of holding seven (7) quarts, nnd the monster lip generally attached when piled up as skimmer men In Atlantic City know how, Incks but little of lillina two (2) seal gallons. "We trust that the good citizens of Norfolk will not be carried away by what Is done In Eastern Shore and North Carolina. We have not yet heard of the City Council or the citizens of Norfolk appealing to the Legislature to annex North Carolina or Eastern Shore to make Norfolk greater, nnd the cheap labor of other sections has sim? ply sorved to make chances for bread, life nnd prosperity less for the laborer within and out the corporate limits of our city. "This action was taken by the pack? ers on Monday without Just cause, nnd only on the ground that they had re? ceived a most respectfully worded petition from us on September 1st, ask? ing for a system, and to cease lending shuckers 'their own money, charglns them 20 and 25 cents per week Interest on J1.00." The shuckers close their circular ns follows: "The Infamous agreement which will confront union men Monday morning? imperialistic movement: "I hereby make application to become a shucker of this oyster house, by agree? ing to relinquish my obligation to the Oyster Shuckers' Union and all other societies that will protect Inhor. No? tice of one week must be given before any shucker can leave said house oi forfeit one week's wages." " SI.00 Konnil Trip to niclnnniltl Or Petersburg Sunday, October 22.
