WASHINGTON, SopL 17.?In the
opinion of the Navy who have been In
close communication with Comman.ler
Colwell, commanding the cruiser
Denver at Havana, the bottom has already
dropped out of tho Cuban revo'u
tlon. One prominent department official
stated to-day: "The Cubans have
made an exhibition showing they are
entirely miSt for self government, but
wnen they found how much in earnest
the United States was, both sides became
frightened, and are doing the'r
utmost to come to an agreement,"
Notwithstanding this 'feeling of optimism

in one circuli will probably apply to
tbe three, as practically the same evidence
it put forth in each.
Tbe principal witnesses examined
Saturday were Engineer Venable and
Major Brady, who were employed by
the company to make an estimate of
the value of the property. The State
gave no testimony aside from that of
Governor DawBon.
Governor Dawson and Tax Com mis
soner Dillon were the only representatives
of the State. Attorney Campbell,
of Huntington. .waa prildtlcally
ruled out of the examination of witnesses.
Attorney W. E. Hayroond and
Attorney Mollohan, of Charleston
represented the company.
Issues Letter
To Departments
GOVERNOR DAWSON WANTS INSTITUTIONS
TO MAKE REPORTS
IN GOOD TIME.
For a number of years past, great
difficulty has been experienced In get-1
ting the reports of tbe several institutions
and departments of State into
the hands of the printer In time to be
ready for delivery at the opening of
the Legislature, as required by law.
In fact, it has been by no means an
unusual occurrence to have these re-1
ports submitted to the governor after;
the opening of the legislative session. |
In order. If possible to obviate a re-;
currence of tjiis condition this year, j
Governor Dawson has issued the fol-1
lowing letter to the heads of those departments
and institutions from whom '
reportB are required:
"Dear Sir:?In view of the large
number of documents to be printed
for the use of the Legislature, which
has heretofore delayed the printing of
some of the biennial reports until too
interior the use of Wis session,"ftr-ls de- ~
sired that yon have your report In aa

"I -would llhe a Bynopsls of the Important
parts of your report for use
In preparing my nrfbssage to the Legislature.
Also, for the report of each
Institution to show the cost per capita,
of Inmate for each of the last two'
fiscal years.
"Are the inmates of your Institution 1
employed at any work? If so, what?
Do you have them at work fanning or
gardening? If so, with what result?
If not, would it be desirable to have
land for these Inmates to till?
"Can the cost of maintaining your
Institution be decreased without 1m-:
pairing its efficiency? If so, how?
"Very truly yours,

PARKERSBURG, Sept. 17.? Lizzie 11
Deanar, a fourteen year old orphan
girl who lives with her grandmother b
on the South Side, was assaulted at A
the City Park Saturday afternoon 11
about 4 o'clock by a well dressed young c
man of Wheeling, who Is now In tho a
county jail, but who so far has fail- ls
'ed to divulge his name, though every
effort has been made to get him to do
so. G
The Deaner girl went to the show 8
grounds Saturday afternoon to attend c<
the clrcus -and was walking around v
when Bhe waB approached by the
Jt:
stranger who began his conversation u
by asking her If he had not seen her c
somewhere before. She replied in the lt
negative and the two in some mannet si
were drawn Into further conversation, A
according- to the girl's story.
The stranger after talking to the e<
girl for some time asked her to take
a street car ride witfi him. To this *
she consented and after riding around
the outer loop he asked her to get off
with him at the city park. This she
at first refused to do, but later consented
and the two walked some distance
to the left of the entrance, ac- |?
cording to her story. Later the
stranger suggested that they walk over
by the big lake and she objected
again. He finally caught her by the
arm and Insisted so' strongly, slie said
thai she went with blm to a point near b]
the lake, not believing that his Inten- ln
tlons were evil. No sooner had the? 0(
arrived at a point near the lake than D1
the stranger, she alleges, threw her gt
to the ground, despite her screams b,
and efforts toggtaway from htm. Her q
slothing was' badly tdhri and when g,
Superintendent Young, of the park, B
Dr. Monroe and several others arrlved
on the scene she was so frightened tl,
and weak that she could'hardly speak. hs
The men grabbed the stranger and
attempted to hold hfm until an officer th
arriven, uui. ne mane a wun nasn i?r|ar
liberty and started toward the city as d(
fast as lie could run, keeping in the i
middle of -the street, |ai
At Seventeenth street he turned 08 m
and ran up that way. but by that time sc
the patrol wagon came in sight, a hur- al
ry up call having been sent in. The yi
horseB were given the right of way
and Anally overtook the young man (l
after he had run eight or ten blocks. cl
He was placed in the wagon and taken d(
immediately to the office of Maglstrate
Ruttencutter, where he was com. w
raided to jail without ball and a war- w
rant was sworn out for him. The 1st- 0)
ter had to be Issued aB John Doe as
the stranger positively refused to give
his name.
Intense Excitement.
The stranger's arrest caused intense
excitement. The magistrate's office
was soon filled with spectators and It C
was only with- difficulty that order
and quiet could be bad. The little
girl was questioned closely and told
precisely the same story as told by
those who witnessed part of the D
crime, after"their attention was drawn la
to the scene of the girl's screams, ai
The case Is much against the stran- be
ger, from appearances. cv

ALLEGED BURGLAR CAPTURED
BV "NICK CARTER" AND
COMPANIONS. -]
The appearance of M. C. Morrison's
three bloodhounds "Nick Carter,"
"King Henry" and King Brady," yesterday,
created some excitement. Mr.
Morrison stopped olt here between
trains. He had been to Weaton whore gt
his doga succeeded In running down D<
E. C. Arbogast, who Is charged rflth th
cracking a safe. pc
The dogs were taken to Weston Sat- of
urday afternoon. Although the safe Is
was blown open three days before, the be
dogs had no dlfllculty In running dowii b<
the alleged culprit. It is thought that m
others are 'accomplices In the crime. to
The safe blown open belonged to the cr
Weston Milling Company. The inner vt
door could not be opened and the re
blower was foiled In his attempted be
