DEPOSITIONS FOB DOCKERY
Three Negroes Examined Yesterday.
Mr. Spears Calls One a Pop-Democrat
The taking of depositions in rebuttal
for Colonel Oliver H. Dockery in his
contest case against Congressman
Elect John D. Bellamy, began yester
day at 11 a. m. in the government
building. Notary Public T. E. Wallace
bv selection of Colonel Doekery's
struthers was stenographer for Dock.
ery ana Miss .ks'telle Shrier ror Mr.
When the court was called to order
there was sharp legal sparing, Mr. Bel
lamy's counsel claiming that the re
quired notice had not been served upon
Mr. Bellamy, and that consequently, it
was not competent for the examina-
tion 'to proceed. After argument, both
notaries held that as Mr. Bellamy's
counsel had put in an appearance and
had associated Notary Fowler with NpT
tary Wallace, it was ruled to be an ap
pearance and the proceedings were or
dered to go on. 5
Albert H. Lamb, colored, was sworn
as the first witness for Colonel Dock
ery. He gave his age as 45 years, resi
dence 1220 Princess street, and his call
ing that of a drayman. He testified
: that he was in Wilmington prior to and
' during the election on the 8th of last
iNovember, and on election day was a
j republican judge of election in 'the
Fifth division of the First ward, the
voting precinct of which is on Tenth
street, near Princess. Being asked by
Mr. Spears how the election passed off
"Well, it passed off very well, dur
ing the day, until well, that evening
there was a great crowd came in well,
the lamps were all knocked off the ta
ble well, as they got more lamps well,
Evidently, the witness was confused
before the august court. He said the
crowd which came in was composed of
whites, but he could not say whether
they were democrats or republicans.
They came into the room 'before all the
votes had been counted. Witness said
he left before all the votes were count
ed, as he got scared and didn't know
i what might happen to him. Being ask-
testify that When all the lights went
out there was whispering and low talk
ing and he couldn't exactly understand.
He said there were fifty or more men
in the crowd which came into the room
and 100 men outside or probably over
.200 in all. When he departed he left
j four election managers with the box,
but he didn't know their politics. As
I for himself he said he is a republican.
I He also testified that he was in Wil-
of November. No democrat or white
man was killed that he knew of, but
he knew of one negro that was killed.
Abram Fulton, colored, was also
sworn. He was aged 39 years, and lived
at 1014 Chestnut street. He was a reg
istrar in the Fifth division of the First
ward. He said the election during day
was quiet, but he went on to tell the
same story as Lamb as to the crowd's
knocking over the lamps while the vote
was being counted. He was here dur
ing the riot, but did not see any per
son that had been killed.
Joe Benton, colored, was the next
witness. His age was 35 years and his
residence 1006 Tenth street. He was a
judge of election in the Fifth division
of the First ward. Being asked what
his politics were he sad he voted a
split ticket. Asked what he meant by
that, said he voted for some populists
and some democrats. He said every
thing was quiet during the election,
and as to the crowd which came into
the room where the vote was being
counted, he said tie thought they were
there just looking on. Colonel Doek
ery's counsel did not like his testimony,
and in further questioning designated
him as a pop-democrat.
A session of the court was also held

After the terrific storm of wind anc
rain the past two days, yesterday was
a .comparatively s fair day and the
strawberry growers had an opportuni
ty to pick and make some shipments
of berries. We understand that the
shipments amounted to about 100
crates. Of these, 25 or 30 crates were
sent from Rocky Point. We under
stand that . Rocky Point expects to ship
a hundred crates today.
We learned yesterday from Mr. G. W.
Westbrook, of Wrlghtsville, that his
first berries, shipped to the Messrs.
Brown Bros., of New York, sold yes
terday at 50 cents per quart.
The telegraph quotations from the
markets last night were to the effect
that berries are selling in the northern
markets at from 30 to 40 cents a quart.

A GIGANTIC DEAJs
All the Electrie and twa Companies of ,
Washington City Secured fey One
Washington, April 20. The Washing
ton Gas Company has been absorbed
by the street railway and lighting syn
dicate headed by Mr. Frederick C. Ste
vens, which recently bought up all save
one of the street railways of the city
and also the electric light companies.
A deposit of $250,000 has beenv made
with the Fourth Street National bank, J
of Philadelphia, to secure a consum
mation of tbe sale. The gas deal in
volves an expenditure of about $7,200,-
000, all of which the syndicate obligates
itself to pay upon what are substantial
ly cash terms.
The proposition made to the stock
holders contemplates the purchase of
rhe entire issue of stock, something
over 120,000 shares, at $60 per share.
The proposition was made by ex-Senator
Gorman on tbe part of the syndi
cate, which also includes ex-Senator
Smith, of New Jersey. John C. Bullitt,
of Philje'rhia, where about 30 per
cent, of stock issued is held, acted
for the stockholders. The remainder
of the stock is held in Washington.
Including the gas deal the holdings
of the syndicate in , this city represent
probably $30,000,000. It is said to be
the intention to supply electricity from
one general plant and thereby making
a large saving " from the method in
vogue now of operating different plants
for the individual railroad and elec
tric light properties.
llryan on Expansion.
Syracuse, N. Y., April 20 The Al
hambra, with a seating capacity of
3,000 people, was comfortably 'filled
with an enthusiastic crowd tonight to
hear Colonel William Jennings Bryan.
Mr. Bryan, on being introduced was
cheered to the echo. His address cov
ered old ground on the subject of in
come tax and the currency.
Taking up the subject of 'expansion
Mr. Bryan said:
"A large standing army is a burden
to taxpayers and a menace to the re
public. This nation can depend upon
it- volunteers. They can defend in the
hour of danger. (Vociferous cheering)
What has happened to make more sol
diers necessary? Nothing but a repub
lican administration. The president
says our occupation of Cuba is tempor
ary. There is no trouble in Porto Rico;
70,000 soldiers are wanted to carry the
benign blessings of freedom to 9,000,000
Philippinos. Who will pay the cost?
If the Philippinos, they must be taxed
four times as high as Spain taxed them.
If we pay it, ask a gold man to show
you how it will get back to the taxpay
ers. "Common people furnish soldiers,
and syndicates get the money paid for
war. I don't want a single soul to be
brought under the American flag unless
he can shaTe in every blessing of this
government (Applause.) Shall "we call
our chief executive president of the
United States and emperor of the Phil
ippines? Government by one man
backed by force is despotism. People
who are opposed to taking the Philip
pines plead not for the Philippinos but
for the American people, not lest they
may be coming accustomed to despo
tism, but prepared to yield; to despots.
I oppose Christianity fired out of a
Gatling gun. The man who is hit does
not need the Gospel. Does the laboring
man want oriental labor to compete
with him? Every nation in Europe
wants us guilty of conquest. If we are
to become an empire let us send
1 Bartholdi's statue back to France and
! go to England and borrow a statute of
j William the Conquerer. Let us treat
the Philippinos as we would the Cubans
and we will erect in the harbor of Ma
' nila a new statue of liberty in the Old
Canada to Kednce Tariff on Cotton
I New York. April 20. A Montreal dis
j patch to The Evening Post says: The
Dominion government contemplates a
I reduction in the cotton duties some time
during this year. Under the MacKen-
; zie government, the duty was 17 per
cent, ad valorem on all cottons. Un
der the succeeding conservative gov
ernments this was changed to a specific
duty of 1 cent a square yard on bleach
ed and 2 cents on colored, beside an ad
valorem duty. This excessive duty
caused mills to spring up all over the
country and presently it was reduced
by Mr. Foster to 224 per cent, on gray
and white, and 30 per cent, on printed,
dyed and colored. The present govern
ment, however, instead of further re
ducing the tariff, increased it to 25 per
cent, on bleached and gray and 35 per
cent, on printed, dyed and colored, al
though it is a well known fact that
cottons can be made in Canada as
cheaply as in the" Eastern states. It is
true that the present tariff gives a pref
erence to English goods of 25 per cent.,
making the actual duty on these goods
18 and 26 per cent., respectively, but
this preference is more than offset by
the extra cost of importing.
Comes from Dr. D. B. Cargile, of
Washita, I. T. He writes: "Four bot
tles of Electric Bitters has cured Mrs.
Brewer of scrofula, which had caused
her great suffering for years. .Terrible
sores would break out on her head
and face, and the best doctors could
give no help; but her cure Is complete
and her health is excellent." This
shows what thousands have proved
that Electric Bitters is the best blood
purifier known. It's the bupreme reme
dy for eczema, tetter, salt rheum, ul
cers, boils and running sores. It stim
ulates liver, kidney and bowels, ex
pels poisons, helps digestion, builds up
the strength. Only 50 cents. Sold by
R. R. Bellamy.
Aiding Cuban Emigrants to Return
New York, April 20. T. Estrada
Pal ma, who until the recent dissolu
tion of the Cuban assembly, was its
representative in this country, said to
day that he was now engaged in facili
tating the repatriation of the Cubans
who had left the island in consequence
of the war. Fully 40,000 Cubans, "he
declared, had emigrated from Cuba,
and virtually all were anxious to re
turn, while few were able to do so.
Most of them had come to this country.
Through the efforts of himself and his
) associates hundreds had been returned.
ITha bulk of them, however, were still
exiled by poverty from Cuba.
The Defense Closes In the George-Sax
'Canton, O., April 20. The defence of
-Irs. George today put on the stand a
witness, who testified that she saw, a
man. in long black mackintosh and
cape, wearing a white sailor hat, pass-"
ing her home, which is on cne of the
routes from the Althouse home to the
center of the city, soon, after the shoot
