SURPRISED BY

Address a Revelation
A STRONG CHARACTER AND HIP
English Poopto Awaken to a Real

Bsiuj a Wiso Statesman
LOKDON Dec 7 The evolution of the
rrJncc of Wales has Interested the Ilrlt
lsh public lu lh protmt week more than
any other inaltcr f general concern HU
visit to tlic city and wi at he said there
Mere core or iees of a revelation to tho
country In regard to the personality ami
character cf the heir to the throne
ThS truth has been that the Duke of
York was never much la the rubllc CJC
and the popular impression of him while
cot unfriendly en the whole has been
vaguely tolirnnt He never won the warm
place iu the public affections which hi
tactful and very human father won at a
much earlier age He had no opportuni
ties to display Ins Individuality and per
haps It was only natural that from this
lack of evidence of any spcciil talents
came a tacit belief in their absence
1iisllKli People jMirprlned
It was a welcome surprise therefore
to the English people yesterday In read
a speech from hia lips which ically said
something and which carried Ideas at
once sound thoughtful even eloquent It
was much above the average of royal ut
terances Cynics at once assumed that
the prince merely rercated -words put Into
his mouth by a convenient bureaucrat
whoso duty It is to write royal speeches
This Is an absolute Injustice The prinui
not only wrote this excellent address to
the citizens of London but performed the
far more difficult task of composing all
cf the many responses to public addresses
in his long tour These included a great
variety uf ideas and sentiment often ex
pressed in exceedingly graceful and happy
language The English public has taken
on the whole remarkably slight Interest
la the details cf the six months toar
A Incld Ziiltnrue
The princes summng up of the whole
story in his Guild Hall address was
therefore in the nature of a new narra
tive to his listeners His straightforward
review and careful analysis of his ob
servations with their lesson to the moth
er country constituted an epitome of lie
current history of the Empire which sur
prised and delighted his hearers
There has been conslderwrul5or3e
and extreme l0B the princes
- Is rather
men nauseating but
it should net o scure the fact that the
future Kins of Great Britain has shown
himself to to a man of parts with brains
and logic and an appreciation of his re
sponsibilities and the duties of statesman
ship Those who were In close personal
association with him on his long trip
gained the truest Jdca of his real char
acter Some of them admit a certain
amount of surprise at the extent of his
development
Free Prom Prejudices
It is a satisfaction to learn that there
Is nothing small nothing of the snob
about him He Is as broad minded and
democratic as his father and Is remark
ably free from prejudices The chief crit
icism If It be such is that intellectually
ho Is still somewhat boyish
JJy this It is not meant that he Is un
sophisticated or uninformed but his hab
its of mind are those of one younger than
ho In jears Far from being ignorant It
will be difficult to find a man of his age
better equipped with knowledge which nc
time goes on he will undoubtedly assimi
late
There is every prospect also that as
the country comes to know him better his
popularity vv 111 be rapidly increased

LONDOX Dec 7 A solemn protest has
been raised against tho city magnates
supplying lark pie at the luncheon for
the Prince and Princess of Vales at the

It Is pointed out that more than a

lojalty which however genuine would
only seem appropriate to a man of beefy

NEW OYSTER DREDGE VICTIMS
TJirec eRTr In n Pitiable Condi
tion Arrive In Tlit CHs
The abuse and brutality to which the
crews of the ojster dredge boats in the
waters of the lovCer Potomac are subject
ed continues to be kept prominently
bclore the public by the frequent arrival
of nc victims
Yesterday three colored men arrived In
the city oti the steamer Palomae They
were Henry Knight William Crccn and
James Cd arils The men claim to have
been worked Incessantly for two months
with but scant food and clothing Al
though they had been promised 15 a
month they were each given a pair of
shoes and a second class ticket to Wash
ington
They were put ashore when from
exhaustion and exposure they were no
longer lit for work Knight and Green
were also suffering with frcst bltten feet
They were temporarily provided for by
the Board of Charities until further pro
vision an bo made for them
Knight in nineteen years old and Uvea
at 120 Main Street Itichmond Va Wh n
he shipped from Baltimore October lie
waB told that he vss to receive 15 a
month
Capt Jim Summers commanded the sail
boat which took him to the incuth of the
Potomac Ulvcr where on October 4 he
commenced work rn the dredge James A
Hooper Capt Tom Trcnck Hi and the
others were required to work eighteen
cr twenty hcurs a day were poorly fed
arid ladly treated he claims
Finally his feet were frcst bitten and
exhaust on rendered further work Impos
sible The three men were put ashore
Thursday morning in the vicinity of the
St Marys Itlver They had each received
a pair of hoes worth J1S0 an old oilskin
rulL valued at 2 and were furnished with
a ticket to this city
The rtcn wanted to go to either Itich
mond or Baltimore but the captain they
say told them they could go to Washing
ton or nowhere They did not receive any
compensation for ther two months work
they say
Major Sylvester yesterday forwarded lo
Governor Tvler of Virginia such addf
tional information as his recently been
accumulated by th department concern
ing the brutal treatment of Edward Hcr
rng by the captain and mate of the ojstcr
dredge on which he was employed The
names and addrcssis cf several witnesses
lJVe been furnished and everything pos
sible has been dene to assist the Virginia
authorities la suppressing a savage prac
tice that has become only too common
in recent jears
The determination of the Virginia au
thcrltics to bring Ihc guilty parties to
Justice and to Institute a general crusade
agains these men is made evident by the
fitting out rf a patrol boat which will be
sent after the culprits
Tollowlng the discovery of His serious
condition of Herzog report has It that

AN ALLIANCE WITH

THE SATURDAY REVIEW RABID

lu onfli America
LONDON Dec 7 That rabid hater of
all tblngs American The Saturday Ite
vicw prints a savage article In support
of Germanys rumored ambitions In South
America It quotes Gaston do Segur who
recently visited Emperor William on the
royal acht Hohcnzollern
According to M de Segur the greater
part ol his hosts conversation was direct
ed to pointing out the folly of European
nations engaging In internecine quarrels
when a greater danger is growing up in
the Far West
The Saturday Bcvlcw then goes on to
say
In the light of these disclosures the re
cent assurance of Baron Von Hollcben
the German Ambassador at Washington
hat the pursuit of coaling stations on
the South American continent by Ger
many Is a figment of the Imagination may
bo received with respectful astonishment
or admiration of such consummate diplo
macy
Interference Inevllnble
Now that President Roosevelt 1 as
thrown down the gage in bis reference to
military powers of the old world which
means hands off Immense growth of
the German population in Brazil Implies
that inevitably some day there will be
German Interference In that country and
the same remark applies with less force
lo Chile
Such Interference In nny form wll
involve n conflict with the United State
This Is what Emperor William with a
jUtesirans foresight kccs but If England
were alienated Germany could not hope lo
at such a distance carry on a war suc
cessfully with a naval power almusl her
equal Then with an ally It would be no
easy task unless that ally were England
with htr naval bases across the Atlantic
With England hostile It wouU be an
impossibility We are not advocating an
alliance with Germany agalnjt the Unit
ed States We advocate still l 8s one with
the United States against Germany Iut
In the event of a conflict we might with
advantage to ourselves hold the balance
Hope for tin Future
Under tho existing Ministry we should
undoubtedly pull chestnuts out of the
fire for the Americans but this Ministry
is not Immortal and a Tory Government
of a different calibre Is conceivable The
permanent alienation of England from
Germany would be injurious to Germany
and more so to England
With friendly Germany posted In
South America and loyal Canada In North
America we rould hold the United States
In some kind of cbcik With GTmnny
eliminated from lac political chessboard
of the New World we should with the
present policy of admitting the unbridled
pretension of the United States every
where one day find ourselves elbowed out
forever from both North and South
America
An Oppot Vler
Oddly enough the Spectator prints
simultaneously with tho above a care
fully reasoned article on the Drllltb for
eign policy tbe conclusion of which Is
It is Impossible for us to expect friend
liness from Germany She Is our rival
she wants to win rom vs Therefore let
us recogntio the facts and banish the
notion of working with Germany against
HUESIa or Indeed any other ror A
German alliance Is the Isast stable ground
on which c can lay llir foundation of
foreign policy

The last and only- remaining point in

the dead mans hip caused by a bullet
fired from a pistol ranging upward In

ture of ninety four pounds and feet 11
Inches high grappled with Ajres voting
tall athletic But she was never la a
position th Government declares to en
able her to dirett a shot entering as the
tip wcund Indicates
The better part of the last two days
have been consumed by the defence In en
deavoring to give a solution of this prob
lem through the lnedlurashlp or an expert
witness Dr W P Carr But it has been
strongly resisted by Mr Gould who has
not raly objected to every Interrogation
bearing en thcsiibeCl but hassonc even
furtbrr and denounced as utterly value
less such testimony when emanating
fru an expert giving hjpotheticnl views
Opposition of Mr Could
The District Attorney has contended
tme and again that It Is a matter for
the commoisf life of the jury to decide
and has advised opposing counsel to dc-
lart irOUl lUU WUriU Ut lijjnJlUcala tvt
more matcrlaUplanet Mr Goulds atti
tude has forced the defence from deploy
ing longer on the skirmish Ilneand caus
ed It to bring its heaviest guns Into ac
tion
Vvhcn the lawyers came Into court yes
terday morning each one of them stag
gered under an armful of serious looking
borVs bound In pumpkin colored calf Mr
Gould rnd his assistant Mr Taggart sat
at a table fortified behind a similar
breastwork of literature
Dr Carr was immediately called to the
stand After tie had given tho result of
his measurements of Mrs Bonlnes body
he was permitted at the end of an hours
argument by opposing counsel to give his
opinion as to the dlstancc froin the point
of entrance of the wound In Ayrcs hip
to the bottom of the foot Witness ap
proxlmatd distance at theirty elght
and one half Inches
Ho was then aeked by Mr Douglass
the question which caused the debate of
the day
Tlie Qnloii Objected to
In your opinion what difference If
nnf would there be In the height or di
rection of the wound assuming that the
party receiving the wound is cither walk
ing or running
Mr Gould who had been listening sus
piciously as Stenographer Gait read tho
question over several times for the Judges
btnclit was on bis feet In a second ob
jecting
What Is the use of all this he de
manded with an air of Irritation Every
fact in the possession of Dr Carr as to
what transpired In that room can be
placed before the Jury Just as clearly as
beforo the witness Ihc Jury is as com
petent to Judge of the different positions
of tho parties in the struggle as Dr Carr
In his examination
Mr Gould said It did not require tech
nical tklll to understand the situation
and referred to Dr Carr as an alleged
expert He claimed it was not compe
tent for an expert to testify to the rela
tive lsltlon of two persons In a homi
cide when one of tbcm had been killed
Mr Goulds Contention
Here tho District Attorney referred to
Mr Douglass skillful phrasing of ques
tions
No matter In what language It may
masqueradn such a Question should be
overruled he commented
Mr Gould said assuming the ques
tion was answered the answer would
possess no value to the defence unless
they followed it up with expert testimony
as to the position of Ayres and Mrs
Bonino when they were engHgcdln the
struggle He thrn read st great length
from a number of authorities in support
of his argument all of which bad decided
against expert testimony being admitted
in similar rases
We arc not here to consider that
argued Mr Douplass when Mr Gould had
finished Authorities differ as to that
In every State In the country But I
have here a decision of the Supreme Court
of tbe United States made In the ease of
Bram vs tho United State admitting ex
pert testimony of tho very nature to ob

A larnllrl Cne
In the case referred to by Mr Douglass
objection had been made to a question
asked a medical expert as to whether In
his oplilon a man could btand at ths hip
of a recumbent person and In striking a
blow on that persons head with an nxc
bo necessarily spattered or covered with
somo of tho blood
In this case observed Mr Douglass
tho Supreme Court ruled the question as
competent Furthermore the question as
sumed tho position of both parties we
only a3sume tho position of the one
Mr Gould answering said that In the
Instance quoted by counsel It was a mat
ter of tho expert possessing great arterial
knowledge
Mr Iloufclnfcii Argument
Is tho muscular system any less com
plex than tho arterial system demanded
Mr Douglass explaining that It required
a knowledge of the former lo answer the
question In dispute and assuring tho

THE TRAGEDY OF
THE VIRGINIANS
MARX REPORTED IN BALTIMORE
Mlrr Likely to Hie of HxlinuHtlon
Ilesnltliii from UN Wound A
SturtHnir Humor from
--
Wurmivi
The tragedy of Tuesday night at Oak
Grove Ta still Terrains an absorbing
topic cf interest Yesterday efforts to
loiale Herbert Marx whose shots fired
from a pistol killed two men and wounded
two others proved unavailing A digest
of varied reports fenm different sections
however loads to the belief that Marx Is
now In Baltimore A despatch last night
gives cofcjvo this theory
Illiicsi oT Tuylorn Mother
It is learned that a brother of William
T Taj lor one of the victims of the Vir
ginia tragedy Is now very 111 in a private
ward at the Johns Hopkins University
Hospital Baltimore Even thename of this
patient ws refused yesterday by the hos
pital authorities Because of his pre
carious condition the patient knows
nothing all about the shooting The
news is L akcpt from him studiously
Taylor hae1betnt the hospital several
weeks Some years ago ho broke his leg
by a fall ajrytlif bone has nttr mended
satisfactorily
StlfUsTlekcrliijc Life
No perceptible change was noted last
night in the condition of John Q Stiff
third victim of the tragedy now lying
at the Emergency Hospital In this city It
Is only a matter of time the physicians
state before the patient will die from ex
haustion resulting from his wound
Tho condition of Stiff Is thus explained
by one of the attending physicians
It appears that the patient is para
lyzed tbe bullet having shattered the
vertebra at the base of tho neck nnd
caused severe laceration of the spinal
cord Thus the entire nervous system Is
crushed as it were and can supply no
nerve force to assist the muscles and va
rious organs of the body In their work
The food does not nourish the body under
such circumstances Therefore as time
passes the tissues gradually weaken and
finally decay and fatal exhaustion must
be the final outcome
An Operation InelTrctnal
An operation on the patient is useless
because of the evident injury to the spinal
cord In fact It would almost certainly
result In death One reason for this Is
that the precise condition of tbe spinal
column has not been determined even by
the use of the X ray H seems likely that
small pieces of bone or possibly a par
ticle of lead from tbe bullet Itself may
press on the spinal cord In such case the
paralyfls of the patient might be thus ex
plained
A sister of Stiff Miss Mary SUB arrived
in the city yesterday morning from West
moreland County Va and is stopping with
relatives on Fifteenth Street northwest
She visited the hospital shortly after her
arrival and remained at the bedside nf her
brother most of tho day Miss Stiff was
alto at the hospital for hours last night
Dr James Stiff brother of the wounded
man who camo here Immediately after
the tragedy has departed to his home at
Fredericksburg Va whore business calls
him Dr Stilt Is a dentist He is ox-
pected to return here for a few days about
the middle of the week
ItrnnrtN Coiirernliijj Jlnrx
A story comos from Richmond that
voung Tavlor who met death at the hands
of Mnrx was la love with his pretty
cousin Miss ItoiQ Talor and that he was
led to the attack on tho Cedar Hill resi
dence because of jealousy prompted by
seeing Marxkfss the girl It is now re
ported thatMIss Taylor admits that Marx
did kiss her bu states that he had done
so before regtrdlng her as a mere child
Statements embodied In several de
spatches last night are to the effect Marx
Is on the verge of nervous prostration It
Is said be l t nearly crazed as a result of
tho shooting Wlicrevnr he Is It Is said
ho Is under medlcal treatment
In a telegram last nluhl from New York
this assertion as fan Interview Is made
William B Marx brother of Herbert
Mnrx tho Jliung Brooklyn lawyer states
that tho latter tas not yet returned to
New York City- He Is In tho country
but not In Virginia Ho was much upset
several days ago but Is now hotter
A SlarllliiK Development
A startling rumor from Warsaw Va
last night Is that lha party which attack
ed Marx in his own homo Intended to
burn the dwelling if necessary to force
a surrender Since the night ot the trag
edy n can of oil and a big bag of straw
have been found lu the yard surrounding
the house It Is supposed these prepara
tions for a fire worn made In advance ot
the actual nttnek on the residence
