NORFOLK Va Aujr 11 A strikine
feature of the Democratic State conven
tlon which will asemble In Armory Hall
in this citv on Wednesday to be In ses
sion for two days will be the appearance
a leaders of si man joung men Tor
jears nast whenever there his been a
State assemblage of this p irt there have
been certain men old both In point of
jears and In point of sen ice Mho have
borne the brunt of the wolic While these
luxe not bem shelved and while their
experience ma lie called upon on more
than one occasion there will be new fnces
seen In the most pub ic places and new
names will be added to the ll t of Dem
ocratic leaders after this contention Al
though many o these nlreadv have a lo
e at reputation it was not until the as
semblage of the Constitutional Convention
tint they became nosslbiltles In a larger
lit Id Tounff men will be selected for the
principal offices of the State and Sounn
nun will place these names before the
contention for nomination
It would be somewhat singular should
the determination to elect United States
Senators bv the people and b a prlmarj
plan be reached at this convention of
oung mm A id ct this will In all hum-in
probabillt be done The question
his been agitated at some length ever
since the State conention at Roinokc
four j ears ago At that time It was onlj
defeated bj a narrow margin and then
because of the personal popularltj of
Senator John Daniel who opposed the
plan because he did not think the Unit
lipc for rutting It into execution
Three jears ago there was held a con
cntlon in Richmond the object being to
devise some wajs and means to carry
out the Idea of those who favored the
direct election At this conventljn An
drew Jackson Montazue who will in
eloubtedlv be Virginias next Governor
and Representative William A Jones
from the First district were the lead
ers but no practical benefits accrued
to the movement Since that time Mon
tague has aged in experience and Jones
has grown less Mtter in expression so
that as they will continue the figlt at
this convention there is ever reason to
believe they will be successful Tin1
will be aided by others who have recently
attained high rank In the part nnd It
now looks certain that from the Commit
tee on Resolutions of which Senator
Daniel will very probably be chalrma 1
there will go to the convention a report
favoring the electing of Senators b the
people at large
This convention will also declare in no
unmistakable terms that the constitu
tion of the State which Is now being
formed by some of the ablest men of the
South will have to be referred to the
people The referendum clause which
was adopted at the convention re re two
jears ago win be reaffirmed because of
the doubt In the minds of some people
w nether or not the Constitutional Conv en
tion will have Its work passed upon by
the voters of the State This doubt is of
recent origin and has no foundatoi m
fact nut the coming convention does not
propose to take chances in the matter
Another Treasure which will receive
favorably consideration will be n gencril
prlmarj that Is a law providing
for a primary for the nomination of nil
State others on the same day in the
different courtics and cities Both Mon
lague an Claude A Swanson wno was
the former- sir xust opponent It the
r te or Incrsliip favor this
file a Jj3 the only opposition so ar ad
ancchto the plan comes from men who
fear the necessary expense incident to Its
execution Th nfirendum matter will
meet with strong opposition several
leaders believing that no mention should
be made of it whatevr Senator Daniel
is among these
There is now absolutel no doubt of
the nomination for first place on the
ticket of Montague He has beaten bwan
bou badly and it is believed by man who
arc well posted in the affairs of the Rep
resentative from the Fifth district that
it will be he who will move that the
convention make the nomination of his
opponent unanimous For the second
place on the ticket Joseph E lllnrd the
ioung leader from Fairfax Count has
now the brightest outlock His principal
opponent Is Dr LeCato State Senator
from Accomac Count but the chances
of Uie latter arc not en bright i or
the attorney generalship the leading as
pirants arc John I Jeffries of Culpep
tr and Major William A Anderson of
Rockbridge The managers of the cam
paigns of both of gentlemen claim
the victor but as the former started In
tho race Hrst and secured man delega
tions before the latter decided to enter it
now looks us If Jeffries will win The
convention will not last over two das
and the balloting for the olliccrs will not
consume much time
One of the results of the nomination of
Montague will be a change In the part
machiner Just how powerful this s is
an unknown quantity t present be
c nise of th setback it recent recel ed
It is a vv-11-known fact that the candi
dacy of Swanson was supported b the
enttie organization although he was
nn In the light arter It really got warm
And et whether It is worth much or
little friends of the next Governor are
det mlned that it shall be used in his
bihcjf the Mate or i - liir of th
party the machiner Is in the hands of
or irall s the state Commltto and the
ten District Committees In ev dis
trict save the 1 ifth where r vvanson con
trols the situation even though he was
defeated there will be material charges
In the personnel of the committees while
man new faces will be seen on the stne
Committee Of the latter J Talirlll
son will remain chairman but his
iite s will be In the main friends of
M intague
Rut for one fact there would be a clear
ewiep In the matter of committeemen
This fact Is that the constitution now be
ll g framed will be submitted to the
people for ratification and there is some
little fear on the part of se veril leaders
tit t It might he defeated should the ma
chiner lie In the hands of an entirely
nw force Ior this reason there will be
left on the committees a sutlicient work
ing force of old members so that their
experience may lie valuable to the new
comers Vhat will be done along tills
line however it Is almost Impossible to

rumors alloat in the bisebill world con
cerning the shake up that will occur at
the end of the se ison when the ten cars
agreement that binds the Nntlonil League
clubs together will be dissolved During
the pist week there hive been a number
of secret conftbs among the magnates
but all of them have rem ilncd close
mouthe d It has been perslstentl stated
however that when the schemers get
through John I Rogers the owner of the
Philadelphia club will ilnil himself out
of the League circuit and that the Hrook

li iltlmore or Washington
Rogers his the most valuable bi elull
plint In America and is not a man to be

city and will lie In demand If he can hold
his pliv ers The Rrookl n club too will
not be turned down without a light If the
Xatlonal League therefore sivs tint
Rogers PhlladelphHs and the Brookbns

clubs will turn around and join the Amer

when the lrookln club finds It compul

If Rogers comes over that will knock the

SAVANNAH Ga Aug 11 The citizens
of Br an Count adjoining Chatham and
a few miles from Savannah have avenged
an assault on a woman by burning her as
sailant after searching for him more than
two weeks Last night short after
dark a negro was spirited away into the
woods near Vas Station fifteen miles
from Savannah and he his not been seen
since It Is authoritatively announced
that he wns burned at the stake for an
nsault on Mrs J J CI irk near Wajs
Station Jul 26 last
The station agent nt Ways states that
he has no doubt that the nogro has been
burned but whether the body was burned
after the negro had been killed or not
cannot be learned here tlni evening It
is not probable however the citizens
In their anger cremated a dead negro
The people about Was Station are
vcr reticent about discussing the mat
ter Mr Clark the husband of the
woman sas he is satlsfieel with the
seiiue I to ills wifes suffering but he will
not go Into particulars He is a section
forem in in the emplo of the Seaboarel
AIr Line Rillwav lie and the station
agent at Wajs Station who were among
the verj few white people visible there
today state that the do not kneiw the
name of the negro who has disappeared
Negroes names do not count for much
in that Immeellate vlclnit anjway
The assailant of Mrs Clark met his
death on a short distance from Wajs
Station shortl after dark R L Young
emplo ed as a section master on the
same road as Mr Clark who took great
interest in running the asfall int to cover
estercay found a negro at Liberty City
about thirt miles away who seemed to
tally with the description given of the
man wanteel He took him into custody
nnd brought hin to Wavs Station
Young took the man to Mrs Clarks
home and she at once identified him By
tint time Clarks friends to the number
of lift or more had gathered at the sta
tion anel when Young attempted to carry
the man to the jail of Br an County sev
eral miles away he was taken from him
and the captor advised to leave the neigh
borhood This he did and for that rea
son he sas he knows nothing of the
burning except that he saw a light from
a bright fire In the timber a few miles
from where ho gave the negro up This
he thinks was the reflection from the
funeral p re
After taking the prisoner from his cap
tor his new guardians turned Into the
woods with him and this was the last
seen of the negro alive No one will admit
having seen the negro meet his fate but
ever one In the icinlty states that they
hear the negro was burned in the woods
and his charred remains left there The
other negroes In the neighborhood are
somewhat excited but there- Is no trou
ble feared
The crime for which this negro paid
the penalty was a most brutal one It
was committed shortly after noon on July
26 Mrs Clark was at home with two
small children an Infant and a boy five
ears old The negro attacked Mrs Clark
and when her son ran to render her what
aid he could caught the little fellow and
choked him Into insensibility
A posse was formed to run down the
negro hut he escaped at that time He
was n stranger In the neighborhood and
no one knew him even at Liberty City
where he was captured vesterday

LONDON Aug 11 The Interest of the
German Government in the Bagdad Rail
way has led them to despatch important
missions to Armenia for the purpose of
making archaeological explorations The
first of these expeditions was entrusted to
Dr W Belck alone and n 1833 and IM
he was accompanied b the Ass rlologist
Dr C F Lehman The report of these
expeditions has just been Issued and the
results to science are most important
The first Indications of civllzation In
the mountain lands bordering on Lake
Van were made known by the Trench
traveler Dr Schultz who copied a num
ber of Inscriptions on the rockv walls of
the fortress of the city of Van Schultz
unfortunatcl was killed b the Kurds
but his diaries and copies of inscriptions
were recovered and published by the
French Government In the- Journal Asl
atlque La ard who visited Armenia
in 1S49 copied a number of inscriptions
and Rassam wno made several visits to
the country and excavated at Toprnk
Kaleh the ancient palace of the Vannlc
kings copied or took casts of several
more but the work of the German ex
peditions has greatl increased our
knowledge of the country
The members collated all inscriptions
previously copied und increased the m i
terljl for the study of ancient Aimcnlan
history b nearly 2000 lines Including the
discover of a most important and I ilrly
lengthv blHngual inscription In Assriau
and Vannlc
The most Important result of the expe
dition has been to define cleirl the ex
tent of Oils empirc which had almost en
tlrel disappeared from the field of his
tor Tin capital cit was Van on the
lake of that name called Dhuspas The
Tosps of the classics but the roal resi
dence seems to have been at Toprak
ICaleh called at a later period Rusas
town The northern boundaries of the
empire aie uncertain but several inscrip
tions were found in Russian Arm nla
On the east the Inscriptions were found
ih for as Lake Lrunileh and oni on tin
reick heights rvir Rovvindiz on the sum
mit of the Iass of Kcli shin 12001 feet
above- sea level Ibis inscription was first
el I scene re el bj Sir Henry Rawllnon and
was set up during the Joint reigns of the
Kings Ispunls and Menuas about 11 C
SOU Westward on the rocks at 1nlu on
the 17uphratc near MilatlCh the in
scriptions of Menujji are also found
The reeoveifd Inscriptions n eortl wars
against the llittites the Assriins and
liter against the Barsuas who appear
not to be the Persians but posslbl some
of the Ar an anguinl I he e lrlicst in
scriptions are- those of Serdur and Ispun
ls and are written In AsHjrlan the an
nc scribes not having adapted the cunei
form sjllalmy which they borrowed to
their own language Ibis however the
soon accomplished and iturlng the joint
reign of and his father the in
scriptions are nil in the Alarodlan language-
Om of the most Important results
ol these resi urches h is neen to settle the
name of tiie people They are called
Knaldians from the name of the nation
al Hoel Ivhaldi and are to be identified
with the Clmldalol of the Greek writers
who figure prominent In Xenophon
Among the objects of art obtnined and
now in the museum at Berlin are seviral
bronze bulls shields etc from loprak
Kaleh ihe museum also possesses some
liiscrlbe U with the names of Arglstis and
Rusas klnus who were conlemnorarv
with Sirgon of Assjrli B Or 721 These
monuments show the source rrom which
the Persians derived the artistic forms
with which they decorated the palaces at
Persepnlls Ihe resemblince of the Per
slin sculptures to those of Nineveh Is In
disputable Ihe difficult was to account
for this slnci the Assyrian pulares hud
been do trojtsl long before the time of
Dtrlus 3 In- Ajmenlin artists got their
art Inspirations ns the had their writing
from Assrl but thej reproduced the
bulls etc In 1 malpiopurtlonesl form
The throne of tho god Kb lldl found at
1iprik Knleh Is evidently copied from
oi of S irgon of Sennacherib nnd in the
work of the Persian itlst We s r all those
forms exnrtl produced and the throne
of Darius is an exact copy of that of
Khaldl nnd no of tho Assrlan original

figures Just presented b the Treisury
Burtau of Statistics which show the
growth of commerte between the two

These figures show thaj Imports into the
United States fromrGermnny have In

In 1S01 and that exports from the United
States to tint countr have Increased
from 12000010 In 1S70 to lil0O000 In 1901
an Increase of nearly 300 per cent In Im
ports from Germany and of nearly 100
per cent in exports to German
On the export side the greatest growth
has been during the last five jears In
which time our exports to Germany have
doubled being in 1G J7Kl7lJT and In
1511 13107225 This growth is distributee

An examination of the satisfies issued

tack on nn Official luv estimation
NEW YORK Aug 11 The committee
of the National Civil Service Reform
League appointed to Investigate the con
dition of the Federal civil service offers
the following report In respect to the levy
ing of political assessments nnd coercion
of the political action of the emploies In
the iwtofnce at Jersey City N J
The facts regarding this case are set
forth In a letter addressed to the Post
master General by the chairman of the
committee It Is in part as follows
I call our attention on behalf of the
National Civil Service Reform League to
charges against E W Woolley nsslstant
postmaster of the Jersey City postofilce
for violation of the Civil Service Arjt In
regard to soliciting political assessments
nnd of section 425 of the postal laws and
regulations edition of 1S35 in regard to
the political activity of officeholders
The evidence on which the se charges
are based was collected In June YJ by
Dr Washburne an examiner of the Uni
ted States Ctvil Service Commission duly
nuthori7ed b thj t bony to investigate
and supplemented by interviews held
within the Inst few das with the assist
ant postmaster anil certain carriers by
Elliot II Goodwin the assistant secre
tary of the league bo much of this evi
dence as appears pertinent Is attached
It appears from the evidence that As
sistant Postmaster Woolley has held the
position of President of the Hudson Coun
ty Republican Committee and of the Jer
sey City Republican Committee during all
the time he has been assistant postmaster
nnd continues still to hold them thit
the Hudson County Republican Committee
had charge of the fail campaigns and the
Jersey City Republican Committee of the
spring campaigns that beginning with
March 1833 these two committees have in
turn sent to the carriers letters request
ing or soliciting subscriptions or con
tributions to meet the expenses of the
campaign that where these requests
were not complied with they were follow
ed in some cases by a second notice that
the last of these requests were sent to
the carriers In the fall of 1500 asking con
tributions for the national campaign that
Assistant Postmaster A oolley during all
this time was known by the carriers to
be the president of these committees and
in some cases his name as president ap
pears on the letter heads on which not
only the solicitations were written but
also the receipts for contributions The
ev Idence for this Is contained In the origi
nal letters of solicitation and receipt
handed over by carriers and now on fllo
with the Civil Service Commission
Mr Woolley made the following state
ment to Dr Washburne June 8 1900

A aturally so c s Nr
It Is evident from the fact that he- was
president of the committees actively en
gaged In the solicitation and receipt of
campaign funds that he was concerneel
In such solicitation and receipt within the
meaning of the law The solicitation was
made by his own committee with his
knowledge It was therefore his own act
When the committee received the money
he received It since it was received ip pur
suance of his solicitation He being an
officer of the United States has therefore
solicited and received from carriers
ploes of the Government mone for po
litical purposes ana no amount or nega
tive testimony can overthrow this coi
Rule II paragraph 1 of the Civil Ser
vice rules provides
Anv ieron la the executive civil service of
the I nitcd states who shall willful violate
an provision of the Civil Service ct or ol these
rules fehall be dismissed from office
I respectfully ask on behalf of the
National Civil Service Reform League
that this rule be enforced by the dismiss il
cf Assistant Postmaster Woolley
In addition to the chirge of violation
of section 2 of the Civil Se vlce Act I
also call our attention to charges agclnst
Mr Woolle and Superintendent of Car
riers Bertsch of coercing the political ac
tion of tiie emplo es in the matter of as
sessments In violation of section 2 clauso
2 subdivision C of said act and prejudic
ing persons In the public service for re
fusing to contribute to political funds In
violation of subdivision 5 of the same
clause and also of pernicious activity in
violation of section 435 of the postal laws
and regulations edition ls93
The evidence collected by Dr
shows that these contributions were
not made voluntatis b the carriers but
were made through fear of persecution b
the otllelIs under whom they were serv
ing That this fear was well grounded
and that the failure to contribute was
general followed by changes of routes
injurious to the carriers affected and by
the assignment of vacations in the win
ter seison an undesirable time is also
short n BrielH sunini irfzed it appears
from the evidence that Carriirs Sherman
Iiux Knobloch Stock and others did
not contribute that Ihev were pounded
by having thMr routes changed and get
ting bail vacations in the winter time
th it othi rs like Coleman Pete Theure r
llogin Edge- and hltelegge did con
tribute ind avoided trouble while still
others like Ureund Loonev Theodore
Johnson Joseph Johnson and Wines af
ter luivlng surferesl in this respect by
failing to contribute flnallv made their
contributions and were not further mo
The fstimonv of certain witnesses is
so significant that I feel justified In call
ing our special attention to it
Joseph Ureund states that he as eel
Superinti udent Bertsch for tho reason
wh ins route was changed nnd the sup
erintendent refused to answer Mr
Bi rtscli said to him When vou hid the
louto you elld not know how to keep it
to which Ureund replied I never had an
complaint Mr Bertsch admitted this
Ureund then said I did m work all
right Mr Bertsch and received the re
ply Well I am not here to tell men what
to do to keep their routes
William Ulnk testified that although
In hard straits for money he contributed

with Superintendent Bertsch a few di s
afterward The superintendent asked
me if It wns me that put that 12 in the
box nnd I said Yes sir anel I s lid
Why what of If And lie said the
committee had mentioned that it was
such i small amount and I said Mr
Bertsch you know is well ns 1 do that
1 could not afford to give them that
and he said Well they did not notice
thit the did not think an thing nf
Thomas Knohlpch t stifled tint just
previous to the spring election of icyi n
man came to his house nnd hand d him
a written letter requesting him to eon
tribute toward the wail or district com
mittee nnd that this letter was signed by
John 11 Weastall and E W Woolley

to contribute Ho further testified tint-
he it id not contributes since isvo and
that list eir his vacation was In Jauur
ar the ear previous it was about mid
winter nnd this vear he Is nsslgned for
vacation as No 91 very low down on
the- list
Sine the examination conducted by
Dr- Washburne an Investigation has been
made certain Inspectors of the Post
ortlce Denartment ind the charges
against Mr WooIIev were dismissed be
cause he denied under j ith that he had
any knowledge of the use of his name
by the campaign committee and because
none of the slxt carriers examined by
the Inspectors alleged that any ollli I it
In tho office had suggested the advisabil
ity of political contributions This last
testimony Is purely negative and cannot
be considered as offsetting the distinct
admissions of Woolle himself nnd of
the direct statement of some tnenty
witnesses examined by Dr Washburne
who testified to such coercion as clearly
constituted n violation of law It Is like
the celebrated case where many wit
nesses testified thnt they did not s e the
defendant steal the horse but as the
animal was found In his possession nnd
as ho had confessed the poeir man was
unfortunately convicted
In the report of the inspectors quoted
b the Postmaster General In his letter
to the Commission occurs the following
We find that with but few exceptions the car
riers Intirviewesl by Dr Wahbwrne at lat

leree and I mile haux w ho vverc the
most active in testifying at Dr Washburne
As a method of discrediting witnesses
the above statement is of a rather aston
ishing character How an thing done by
Edge W hltelegge and Laux could dis
credit the positive testimony of Sherman
Frcund link Knobloch Bulkley Stock
Pete Theurer Hognn Ixxmcy Johnson
Hunt and Wines is not clearly percepti
ble and In looking over this list the state
ment of the particular offences commit
ted bv each of th Hires- orfenders seems
indefinite Which particular man elcstro
eil his credibility b being sick in the hos
pital and which of them by the still grav
er offence of actually dlng Is not stated
nor Is it shown whether a suspension for
two davs or even live days necessarily
demonstrates a serious Impairment of
character The object or such a report
would seem to be rather to cast confusion
upon the evidence than to throw any real
light upon it

Two Controversies Knfrnglnp the
Attention of Officials
Interest In the- clile Conrt of Kn
eiulry nnil the CuanulerKvana
Matter Still Imilintril PreuarlnK
for the ISnntlairo Investigation
Two controversies continue to stir the
officials of the Navy Department In the
Schley case Interest la in the preparation
for the Court of Enquiry and In the
Chandlcr Enns matter It lies In the
question as to what action one or the
other or both the parties will take as the
result of the public reprimand which the
lnttcr recelveel last week as the result
of the complaint of his former chief
Investigation and enquiry upset the War
Department Immediately after the war
with Spain Now It is the navys turn
for sensation and turmoil and recent oc
currences have developed more In this
line than the Administration Is anxious
For three weeks or more public atten
tion has been directed toward the charges
of the navy clique against Admiral
Schley and his request for an investiga
tion Now that the third member of the
court has lieen selected In the person of
Admiral Hnwlson to fill the plate of
Admiral Kimberly and the list of wit
nesses has been practically completed
there Is little to bo done but to await
the asscmohn of the court which will
meet on September 12
There Is little preparation of the case
to be undertalcn in tho part of the Navy
Department for thu evidence upon which
Admiral Schley a enemies expect to con
demn him Admiral Crowninshleld the
Chief of the Bureau of Navigation has
at his fingers and tongues end The
burden of the work of preparing for the
case has devolved upon Admiral Schley
and It is for this puriiose that his assist
ant counsel Captain Parker has been
for the past two weeks consulting the of
ficial records in the Navy Department
He has not et completed his task and
Is expected to return to Washington this
week to continue his search for evidence
which will be to the advantage of his
client He has been going over the re
ports very carefully although annoyed
by the presence of Admiral Crownln
shields sleuths who have dogged every
step he has taken
Judge Jere M Wilson of this city one
of the best known law ers of the coun
try has been retained by Admirsl Schley
as his chief counsel He has just re
turned from a trip abroad and while
awa was requested by cable to repre
sent Admiral Schley He is an old friend
of the hero of Santiago and while he did
not hasten his return home by reason of
having been retained as counsel he will
at once begin looking into the case and
preparing for one of the greatest efforts
of his life Judge Wilson has figured In
many Important cases in Washington
which have attracted widespread atten
tion and his appearance In behalf of Ad
miral Schley is an assurance that every
effort which legal acumen can bring to
bear will be made to undo the admirals
traducers Captain Parker now has the
evidence so well In hand that Judge Wil
son will beable to go over It and map out
the course which he will pursue with
little difficult He will have just one
month from today before the court con
W hat remains for the Navy Department
to do will be done upon the return of Cap
tain Lemlv the luJge advocate of the
court who will represent the department
at the enquiry He is expected back
frori his vacation on August JS Orders
have already been sent out to nearly all
of those who are expected to be here to
testify In the case both for and against
Admiral Schley Unlike a civil or a crimi
nal case the witnesses will probably not
have any preliminary examinations but
will be allowed to go upon the stand and
tell what the know of Admiral Schleys
conduct during the Santiago campaign
and will be subject to crosj examlnatlon
There will doubtless be some sensational
incidents In connection with the hearing
and although the case has been pretty
well thrashed over for the past three
ears It is nevertheless predicted that
some things will develop which have not
heretofore been mentionsd upon eithu
side of the controvers
The Nav Department entirely discred
its the report that Admiral Howlson the
third member ot the court at one time
expressed an opinion in regard to Admiral
Schles conduct which was adverse tc
that officer He explicitly informed Act
ing Secretary Hackett when he was re
quested to serve on the court that he had
no bias or prejudice in the matter and
that he lad alwas refrained from mak
ing any statement concerning It
Some question has arisen as to where
the court will sit Secretary Long has
directed that it first meet In the large re
ception room in the Navy Department
but after assembling there It will be left
to the court itselr as to where the body
will hold its further sittings This room
is regarded as entirely inadequate under
the circumstances There will be many
naval ofiicers and manv newspaper rep
resentatives who will wish to be present
and It Is vcr likel that the attendance
will be limited to these alone it would
h Inn oslbe to undertake to admit the
general public
The suggestion has been made that the
court sit at the navy ard where there la
ample room but that place is objectiona
ble because it is so far from the centre of
the city and -would be inconvenient for
all parties concerned It would necessi
tate a removal of all the records and pa
pers in the case from the department
which would involve considerable trou
ble and annovance
I notilclal consideration of the bchley
case was temporaril diverted last week
while the subject of Admiral Evans rep
rimand was taken up ana discussed Ad
miral Evans himself will say nothlns
in regard to the matter but it Is pre
dicted that he Is not the man to allow
the matter to rest wnere it is Charges
having been made against him he has
th right under the regulations to
demand a court or enquiry to determine
whether or not they were justified In
order to maintain his sobriquet of 1 Ight
ing Bob his frlerds sa he cannot af
ford to take the lash without striking
hack What course Jie w ill take rem lina
to be seen
