Raleigh, X. C., March 18. The new
board of directors of the central hos
pital for the insane met here today,
in the senate chamber, and organized.
The meeting was with closed doors.
It was decided yesterday by parties in
interest that there would be a friendly
suit to test the constitutionality of the
new art abolishing the ofliees at the

lative act are termed trustees. All
were present. Dr. Palemon John, of
Klizabeth City, was elected chairman
and M. L. Wood secretary. Senator At

A. I Jeans- of Wayne, were made the
executive committee, in-. William K.
Wood of Scotland Neck, wis, in ac
cordance with the nomination by the
bolting populist legislative caucus,
elected superintendent of the hospital
by acclamation. The board adjourned
subject to the call of Chairman John.
J. C. L. Il.'irriss, attorney for the hoard,
was directed to make formal demand
on lr. Kirby for the possession of the
hospital. It was announced that .'is
souii as I r. Wood received notice of
his election he would come here and
make similar demand.
The old board of directors was also
in session today. It docs not recognize
the board of trustees at all. Dr. Per
son, one .f the trustees, said: "We
acknowledge the directors as belliger
ents. All we have got out of this bus
iness so far is a superintendent and a
The case will be submitted to the:
superior court next week and will go
before the supreme court at this term.
Dr. Kirby holds over until the matter
is adjudicated by the courts. Arrange
ment for a friendly suit was arranged
last night by counsel for the directors
and trustees. The directors were in
session today, but transacted only rou
tine business, adjourning until tomor
row. Ciovernor Russell desired today to ap
point a police justice for Asheville un
der Dusk's bill which was ratified
almost at the close of the legislative
session, hut it was found that the act
was very defective. I 'age 4 begins to
give the details of the appointment of
the polite justice, but page 5 begins
with an entirely different section of the
bill. So the governor was unable to
issue a commission. It is said the ma
chinery for holding an election is also
endangered by this error.

The new board tried to induce the state
auditor to pay it mileage and per diem
but he refused.
A Suicide at Fayetteville.
(Special to The Messenger.)
Fayetteville, N. C, March 18. George
Dennett, a factory employe, killed him
self with laudanum last evening. He
staggered into the house of Dr. Mc
Donald, in the eastern part of the city,
saying: "I have been in the woods for
four days. I wanted rest, and I have
taken laudanum," holding up a bottle.
Help was summoned, but too late.
.Bennett left a letter, saying the cause
of the act was domestic trouble. His
wife bears a good character.
Kougli Experience at Sea.
Norfolk, Va., March 18. The sailing
ship Cambrian King arrived in Hamp
ton Roads yesterday with her sails
gon-e, they having been blown away
in a storm at sea last Sunday week.
She loaded with oil shipped by tiie
Standard Oil Company and was bound
from New York to Hong Kong, China,
She had a severe experience and the
crew were about to cut away her spars
when the wind shifted and the storm
abated. As it was, besides the loss of
her sails, lhey had to throw overboard
2,450 cases of oil and the rest of the
cargo shifted, which may necessitate
her unloading and replacing her cargo.
A survey is in progress and she is ex
pected in port tonight. During the
jsiorm the captain's wife and child had
a narrow escape from drowning, the
cabin nearly filling with water before
they could be gotten out. They were
rescued by the steward and in five
minuter after they gotout the cabin
was full of water. The vessel's decks
will require re-calking.

schooner with a cargo of munitions of

gents on board. The Sebenico, under
the orders of the British admiral com- j

gunboat and the insurgents on board .
in reply opened fire upon the Sebenico, 1

Paris, March 18. The Echo de Paris
publishes a rumor that the governor

Henri, of Orleans, who is now in Abys

commons today Sir Charles Dilke (lib
eral) asked whether a blockade of th
ports of Crete had been declared by the
powers and whether Germany had de
clined to employ her forces in the in
terior of the island.
Mr. John Morley, liberal, asked
whether Greece had "been invited to ac
cede to the terms of the identical note
of the powers before the blockade of
the ports of Crete was instituted.
Mr. A. J. Balfour, first lord of the
treasury, replied that the British min
ister at Athens, 'Mr. E. H. Egerton,
had been instructed to notify the gov
ernment of Greece that a blockade of
Cretan ports would be instituted.
In reply to Sir Charles Dilke's other
question, Mr. Balfour said he had no
information that Germany had declin
ed to send troops to Crete. Germany
thoroughly agreed with the policy of
'Mr. Morley asked if this technical
notification was what M. Meline, tha
French premier, referred to in his re-
cent speech in the French chamber of
Mr. Balfour: "'I don't know. I must
say that it is not satisfactory to an
swer questions put by gentlemen who
embarrass the government as much as
they can by question inside and
speeches outside of the house."
Sir William Harcourt, amid liberal
cheers, protested against Mr. Balfour's
censuring the opposition members who
sought for legitimate information. He
then proceeded to say: "Lord Salisbury
referred to Premier Meline's speech
and we must have an answer thereto.
That reference, made in the house of
lords, contains the only information!
that has been given to this house or to
the country, (cheers). I again ask, M.
Meline having stated that Greece
would be re-invited to accede to thd
terms of the note of the powers and
that the ports of Crete would not be
blockaded nor the number of European
troops in the island increased until
Greece had been again notified, Wheth
er that has been done."
Mr. Balfour refused to make any ex
planation concerning M. Meline's
speech and said that if Sir William
Harcourt wished to move a vote of
censure on account of his refusal let
him name the day.

time: otherwise force will be employed
to compel their departure.

The are some intimations that the
governor will not make public the
names of the new directors of the
North Carolina railway until April 5th.
The governor directs Judge Ewart

a term of the Eastern criminal circuit
court for Craven county. Under the
new acts there can be an exchange of
terms between the circuits, at the gov
Robert Hancock, who is to be the
presider. of the Atlantic and North
Carolina railway, is here. As yet the
governor has not ai pointed the new
ciirectors, but he will probably do so in
a few days. Hancock evidently expects
to take charge speedily.
The new superintendent of the peni
tentiary asked Warden Fleming to con
tinue in his position until the end of
the summer. Fleming declines and
will retire April 1st.
The statement is made that there
will be a straight democratic and an
independent democratic candidate for
mayor of Raleigh and that the negro
voters will support the independent. It
is further asserted that an independent
Club is formed and has 250 members.
Carl Duncan, of Beaufort, is here.
He is promised the place of revenue col

next November, and he does not expect
to go in before that time.
It is the sentiment here that the
state ought to make a fine display at

It was the bolting populists them
selves who gave out the news that Rev.
Dr. T. W. Babb was to be the chap

New York, March 18. The Allan
State Line steamer Carthagenian,
which arrived this morning from Glas
gow rescued the crew of the Wilson
steamer Rial to, which took fire and
was abandoned March 5th in latitude
51.31 and longitude 22.45. The Rialto
was bound from New Castle for this
port, loaded with a general cargo, in
cluding a large quantity of chemicals.
She left port on February 21st and ex
perienced strong westerly gales, whieli
gradually increased in Violence until
March loth, when a varitable hurri
cane was blowing.
At 4 o'clock in the morning a terrific
explosion in the forehold blew the
hatch covers intJ the air, killing one
seaman and injuring the chief mate.
Dense columns of thick yellow smoke
poured out and a choking, penetrating
odor pervaded the ship and the crew
were at once called to fire quarters,
It was necessary to batten down the
hatch to prevent the fire having full
vent. Meanwhile the ship- was wallow
ing in the high sea and occasionally
burying itself under a giant comber.
The life boats were smashed "by the
seas and the crew saw death staring
them in the face. All hands worked
with desperate energy, but in spite of
all efforts, the fire seemed to gain
At 2 o'clock in the afternoon the
Carthagenian was sighted and in re

until the weather moderated sufficient

B'ialto seamen did not relax their ef

further into the cargo and the deck:J
grew hottei and hotter. For forty
houis, or until the early morning of
the 5th, the Allan Liner stood by and
then the weather moderated enough to
make it possible for a life boat to
leave. As the Rialto's boats were all
gone, Captain France, of the Cartha
genian, ordered his manned and after
a great struggle the entire crew were
taken off without . mishap. Captain
Rippeth said that when he abandoned
the Rialto the plate seams were gap

The Work of Rescue In Flooded District
Memphis, Tenn., March 18. The work
of rescuing the people in the flooded
district is being carried on night and
day, and this morning half a dozen
steamers brought to Memphis over 1,
000 refugees. The steamboat men tell
some harrowing stories of suffering and
death. One woman who was rescued
from an Indian mound, fifteen miles
west of here, held in her arms a dead
infant that had perished from cold and
hunger. Another family of four, when
rescued, related that two small children
were drowned in sight of their helpless
parents. Islands Nos. 40, 37, 36 and 34
in the Mississippi are completely sub
merged, and the inhabitants to the
number of about 600 have abandoned
their homes. Rain began to fall here
yesterday afternoon and at noon today
there had been no cessation of the
downpour. The river now marks 36.9.
The levees are standing the strain
much better than was expected, but a
break is liable to occur at any moment.
A levee near Carruthersville, Mo.,
broks this afternoon, but what damage
was done is not yet known. Private
reports are that it was simply a break,
while the levee board declares it was
the result of a cut. There have been
no additional drownings reported to
day, but the rumored drowning of five
from a bridge in Arkansas was con
firmed. The victims were a mother ana
four children. It is now believed the
vast majority of imperilled people with
in reach of Memphis have been rescued.
There are about 3,000 of them here.

Cincinnati, March IS. The Post this

paring a final statement of the Pearl
Bryan murder, which will be trans-,
ferred to Governor Bradley. The name
of Dr. Wagner, of Bellevue, who was
confined in the Lexington insane asy
lum shortly after the murder, it is
said, will figure in this confession. The
two men will allege that Wagner knew
more of the case than was ever told or
even suspected. The question as to the
whereabevu's of the head will be touch

Wagner, were he Insane, could tell
something interesting concerning its

Immediately after the senate Went
into executive session this afternoon
Senator Davis, for the committee on
foreign relations, submitted a report
on the general treaty of arbitration
with Great Britain, with certain
amendments made by the committee.
He offered a resolution that the treaty,
as amended, be ratified, and this start
ed the discussion.
Senator Morgan, of Alabama, took
the floor immediately and began a vig
orous speech against the ratification
of the convention. The statements of
the senator from Alabama were large
ly repetitions of the speeches made by
him on the subject during the last ses
sion, when the unsuccessful effort was
made to ratify the treaty. He took the
ground that ft would be unwise and
impolitic for the United States to tie
its hands by a treaty of arbitration of
any sort whatever, so long as the oth
er contracting party was Great Bri
tain. That' country, he contended, was
the general enemy of all nations; its
hand was raised against all other pow-
ers in its struggle for territorial ag
grandizement, the valuable possessions
of the world. There was in this treaty,
he argued, a hidden pitfall into which
the United States was about to plunge,
and he urged senators to refuse to
sanction a treaty that gave our nat
ural enemy every advantage; a treaty
that was useless and formulated in re
sponse to a sentiment that ought noc
to exercise the slightest control in the
management of the affairs of a great
nation. He spoke also for his colleagues
on the committee, Messrs. Mills and
Daniel, but it is probable that befor
the debate has proceeded very far both
of these men will have something to
say for themselves. The chances ate
that the debate will continue through
