Chase Street. Phone 864. The coroner's Jury which investigat ed the death of Bertha Barnes, better known as Bertha Robinson, a young mulatto negress, who died Monday night from a stab in the heart with a long-bladed pocket knife, met yes terday morning at 8:30 o'clock and ren dered a verdict charging Annie Adams, another negro woman, with doing the stabbing and Arthur Pete, a negro I. man, with being an accessory to the killing. Both Pete and - the woman were arrested shortly after the Barnes woman died and are locked up in the county JalL At the inquest yesterday Annie Adams claimed that she stabbed the woman in self-defense, saying that Bertha Barnes shoved her while she was dancing with Pete in a retsaurant run by Carrie Dauphin, on West Gov ernment street, uar DeVilliers, when, she said, the dead woman cut at her with a pocket knife. The testimony of several witnesses does not bear her out In this state-? ment They said the dance had stopped and that the stabbing was done after some words passed between the two women. j When Pete was carried to the police station Monday night he told Chief Sanders that he did not" give Annie Adams the knife with which she cut the other woman, ' but at the inquest yesterday be said he gave it to her earlier in the afternoon, some time before the trouble took place between the two women. Annie Adams ad mitted to Chief Sanders that she stabbed the woman and said Pete gave her the knife to do it with. No statement was secured from Bertha Barnes, as she never regained consciousness after .she arrived at the police station, where .e died on the operating table within a half hour after reaching there. Prisoners Write Notes. The following notes, which were se cured from them by Chief Deputy Sheriff Hartsfield. passed between Ar thur Pete and Annie Adams In the county Jail yesterday: "Annie: .

CHICKEN THIEF GOT SIX HENS ROOST IN YARD OF HUBBARD ALLEN ROBBED MONDAY NIGHT ATTEMPT MADE TO ROB STORE RUN BY CARY WHITE. To the White Primary Voters. It was with the keenest pleasure that I learned of Mr. H. O. Anson's announcement as a candidate for city commissioner. To those who have known Mr. Anson, intimately, from boyhood up to the present time, as I have known him, my words of Intro duction are entirely unnecessary, but to those who are not thus acquainted and have no knowledge of his ster ling character, I wish to speak, in the hope that I may help in his election to the office. Tou know as well as I the qualities which should obtain In those men with whom we are about to place our des tinies. This city is a great, big cor poration of many millions of dollars invested, and the welfare or hardships to many thousands of human beings are at stake. Let us not hastily or lightly cast our vote on personal friendship or expediency, but let us se lect such men as there can be no duobt about their integrity, their capacity, their wisdom and caution, coupled with aggressive progressivness. I do not believe anyone can success fully contradict me when -1 say that Mr. Anson psosesses these qualities as fully as any citizen among us. My acquaintance with Mr. Anson dates from the time he donned his first pair of long pantaloons. He commenced as a clerk with my firm (Hutchinson & Levy) about the year 1890. Work ing for us 4 or 5 years he steadily ad vanced. At this time the firm was dissolved and Mr. Anson was one of f thf Le my f the organizers of thf corporation of whj ager and senior m were associated togel for 4 or 5 years more,x vy-Pou Co., a vas the man- Here we in business when about the year 1898, he withdrew his connections and started out In business for him self and with the best wishes and good will of all concerned. His business has since that time steadily prospered. As an employ of mine he was sat isfactory from every standpoint and as an associate In business I found him exceedingly energetic, of unswerving honesty and possessed of exceeding good Judgment in our councils. Dur ing these years of close companionship I realized the many admirable quali ties of head and heart which he pos sessed. Born and reared amongst us he comes naturally by his love and ad miration of everything of. In and for Perrsacola and an -Intense desire to ad vance her .Interests. Forty years of age, he still has the energy of youth, yet sufficient age and experience to exercise wisdom and caution and, as to his Integrity the whole of his so cial and business acquaintances would answer as one voice, that it was un impeachable. In conclusion I can confidently assert that no man will ever have Just cause to regret his assistance In electing Mr. Anson as one of our first city commis sioners under our new charter. New vigor. New life. ' Respectfully. LOUIE M. LEVY. REPORT OF HIS WO HAD V KffARRIE CROP EXPERT SAYS COTTON AVERAGE IN ESCAMBIA COUNTY HAS BEEN CURTAILEDCORN PROMISING, BUT OAT CROP HAS SUFFERED STRAWBERRY CULTIVATION IS SCARCE. iliuji ""iijiitii'lllftiilii mJt6..AW..-,.i.ll The police department yesterday re ceived a report of the operations of a chicken thief on North Tarragona street Monday night and the attempt at robbery at a store run . by a negro on the corner of Chase and Cevallos streets. . .. t The chicken thief stole a half dozen hens from the hen house of Hub bard Allen, living at No. 1412 North; Tarragona street, who made a report of the matter to the police station yesterday. Cary White, proprietor of a grocery store at the southwest corner of Chase and Cevallos streets, filed a report with the police, which said that at about 1:30 Tuesday morning some par ties attempted to break into his store, but they ran off when White called to them. White, who sleeps in the store, said the men- tried to gain an entrance at a- side door on Cevallos street. , At the. regular monthly meeting of the Escambia County Crop Improve ment Association held Monday, in the rooms of the commercial association, Mr. C. K. McQuarrie, the agricultural adviser, submitted his report cover ing the work for the month of April. This showed that he visited 122 farms, covering the territory of Cot tage Hill, Bluff Springs, Muscogee, Oakgrove, Bradt, Roberts, Pine For est, Kupfrian Park, Ferry Pass, Can tonment, Barrineau Park and McKln nonvllle. He traveled 413 miles by rail, 127 miles by team, and 62 miles by auto: reported general farm crops In a backward condition, owing to a late spring more particularly in the northern part of the county. , Quite a number in the cotton growing sec tions are reducing the cotton acreage and some are cutting It out entirely and growing some other crops: they are afraid of the boll weevil and owing to the cool nights prevailing, this crop Is not looking well. Mr. Mc Quarrie suggested some methods to help get the crop hurried toward bet ter conditions. "Corn Is very promising where the soil has received proper treatment," he said, "the wire worm and cool soil have combined toward a poor stand In some places, and a few farmers have ploughed over their land and re planted the crop. This is a good plan to pursue, as It warms up the soil and helps quick germination. The bud worm is apt to be troublesome, how ever, in late planted corn, but if proper methods are used, this can be success fully overcome. "The oat crop has suffered severely from prolonged rainy weather In the early spring: some fields are not worth cutting. The condition of this crop shows very conclusively the lack of proper treatment after these rains. The lack of weeder or harrow on the farms, to run over that crop after a rain has cost the farmers of the county thousands of dollars In the oat crop this year. "Irish potatoes promise well, but for lack of good seed the stand is poor. This is a crop that can be grown as a cash crop by every farmer in the county, and Is very profitable when the proper methods are used In its production. "I am very much surprised to find so few of the farmers and truckers growing strawberries. The local mar ket Is a good one for this fruit, and at present fully eighty per cent of the strawberries consumed In Pensacola are from outside of Escambia county: this is a state of affairs that should not exist and In the years to come j an effort should he made to grow j enough of this fruit not only to sup- j olv the local market, but to ship to other markets, because It Is a very j profitable crop to grow. I am sur prised to find so few farmers with fruit trees on their places. Figs and peaches can be grown very profita bly, end so can Satsuma oranges, and Japanese, persimmons. . "I find the fertilizer question a very live subject among all of those visited. I have supplied them with formulas for the different crops and explained as well as possible methods of getting what they should, for the crops In view. "Truck crops such as cantaloupes, watermelons, tomatoes and beans, do best when sprayed at the proper state of growth by Bordeaux mixture. Have suggested to those In this line of work that they provide themselves with sprayers and some of the dry materials to use when conditions demand it. "Have been on the poor farm and usrsrested to the superintendent a line of work that should prove more profit able than what has hitherto been practiced; he is planting a special acre of corn for demonstration and breed ing purposes; have provided htm with special seed corn for that pur pose; he is also going to make a spec ialty of sweet potatoes, a crop es pecially suited to the kind of soil on the farm. - "I will try and make it a point to visit this farm at least once a week; the superintendent seems to me to be a good man for the place and be tween us, I hope to get good results. "Have not ; been able so far to do much in the Boy's Corn Club work, f as owning to the scattered location of last year's boys in the work and the difficulty in getting to see them, this work is not very promising. The lateness of the season before I entered the work is also against a promis'ing result. "I have seen a few of the girls In the Tomato Club work, and the out look In this Is a little better than In the Corn Club. "Have seen a majority of the ad visory council, who all expressed their willingness to help In every possible way, and when we get this branch of the work thoroughly organized, I ex pect to get good results, because If there is one thing more than any thing else that , the farmers need, it is a proper organization to carry on their work In all its branches success fully. I would like to see every com munity have Its own local organiza tion, and these federated into one TWO STEAMERS AID A SAILING VESSEL ARRIVE STEAMSHIP BOUND FOR HONG KONG AND AMOY CAME HERE FROM PORT ARTHUR, TEXAS, FOR BUNKER COAL. Two steamships and one schooner arrived at Pensacola yesterday, but neither of the steamers will take cargo at this port, calling here . for bunker coaL The steamers were the TTbber gen and Lord Sefton and the schooner the Goldfield. The Lord Sefton, which came here from Port Arthur, Texas, with a full cargo of kerosene oil and refined pe troleum for Hongkong and Amoy, China, took on 820 tons of coal, fur nished by the Pratt Consolidated Coal Company. She will probably sail on her long voyage today. The Ubbergen loaded S58 tons of coal and sailed about 6 o'clock yes terday afternoon for London. She was loaded with timber and lumber at Gulf port. The coal was furnished by Cary & Co. The big four-masted American schooner Goldfield arrived from Mobile and was docked at Commandancia street wharf, where she will start tak ing on cargo.

"PENSY PLAZY" VERY POPULAR ANNOUNCEMENT THAT IT IS TO BE REPEATED RECEIVED WITH DELIGHT BY THE PUBLIC. The delight with which the an nouncement of a repeat performance of "Pensy Plazy" at the opera house Monday night. May 5th, has been re ceived. Is really something to marvel at. To hear the comments about the street, one would assume that It was th first time "Pensy Plazy" had ever been seen, so universal are. the assur ances that there will be a rush for tickets once more to see this little hodge-podge of nonsense. In fact, it is a foregone conclusion that tickets will be in great demand as on the Everything to Wear.

The Important announcement that will please theatergoers Is that extra features will be added for this per formance. Possibly one of the most important Is a professional feature that promises to be one of the tre mendous hits of the season. By pro fessional feature, is not meant some local personage, or some singer or artist who has appeared at the local moving picture houses, but refers to strictly a prominent member of the theatrical world, who will happen to visit Pensacola Monday. From know ing ones It is learned that this feature will be a treat. In order to prevent too much publicity the entertainment committee of the Carnival Association have been requested not to divulge names, save to say that a wire has been received stating that the "act" will be here for the show Monday night. Pleasant news it is Indeed to learn that Messrs. Kenned y, Wagenheim. Harvey, Hervey, Avery, Brent, Fren kle. Grant, the Pourtless kids, and the Misses Wafrenheim and Berlin are to appear In their respective roles as at the previous performance. The scenery, . in fact, every detail, will be used as In the former perform ance, save the addition of new fea tures; even "Pensy Plazy" will have a White & White 20 S.

It Is also a public fact that Mobile wants "Pen?y Plazy" for a performance in that city for the benefit of some charitable in stitution, which speaks further plaudits for the show. STRIKERS RETURN.
