Hood's DID HE COME HERE? A SEARCHING PARTY IN WIN STON Til URSDAY MORNING. Bloodhounds Followed a Trail in Thls Direction Wednesday After noon, but Lost It Searchers Left Here About 11 O'clock. M. srs P M. Sheets, D. A Shoaf, V. Humphrey and Will Holt, of L x ichton, and W B. Hart3e, t;f t'.urlifg ton, arrived iu Winston about two o'clock a ui Thursd in search of the villain who uiurderei Mrs. A. A. Springs in Lexington, early Wednesday morning. The party traveled in a hack and were accompanied by two bloodhounds which belong to Mr. Hartsoe. They left Lexing on about, 8 o'clock Wed nesday evenicg. The party spent the remainder of the night here The dogs were placed in the basement of the municipal building. The aoima's were curiosi ties to a majority of the large number of people that called to see hem. There were many conflicting re ports current that morning in regard to the searching party. One was to the effect that the dogs trailed a man from Lexington as far as the car line, South of Salem. From a member of the party it was learned that the dogs struck and ran a trail out of Lexington to the farm be longing to Baxter Shemwell. Two suspicious looking men were seen near the farm Wednesday morning and the searching party tracked them for some distance The dogs were unable to trail only when they would strike a moist place in the road. The animals ran the trail (off, and on) as far as Midway. The searching party, wH.h their d gs,rt tu-ned to Lexington Tbu s lay. l'hey leu here a few minutts after 11 o'clock. From the Charlotte Observer's ac countof thedreadful tragedy we make the following extracts : "Mr. A. A. Springs, proprietor of the March House, was suddenly awakened from sleep by the scream of bis wife at bis left side, and the Are of a pistol a few feet from his face on his right side, in the hand of au assassin, standing just inside of his chamber door. A dim light, burn ing in the hall, and the flish of the weapon revealed to him iu this waking moment of time a white man of medium s'ze. He did not recognize the man. The burglar ran from the room through the hall into the hotel office, and tscaped by a window through which he had evidently en tered. Mr. Springs was horrified to find thatVrs .yrr'pys was sb,ot He called up the family ami batuy summoned Drs. Joel and David Hill. Mrs Springs never spoke after the fatal shot, the bullet having entered her left eye. From her position she had evidently been awakened by the entrance of the burglar, had raised up on her left arm and was looking at the man when be fired her eye being open, or partly so, when the ball struck it. Drs. Hill were unable to give her any assistance, and death came quickly, perhaps twenty minutes after the tiring. The news spread rap diy, and the entire town was soon horror-stricken over the awful tragedy. All efforts were made to apprehend the murderer. Men went in every direction, and tele grams were sent to all the surround ing and accessible towns. The pursuing party and Mr.Hartsoe came in tonight (Wednesday) the dogs having lost the track in a dry oid field, after having run several miles. Part of the time the tracks of two par ties were seen. They were going in the direction of Winston, or toward Danville, when lost." KKRNERSVILLK LOCALS. A Party of Fishermen Running Two Brick Yards, Ktc. Our Kemersville correspondent writes as follows : A party of fishermen made a raid on Dr. Kerner's mill pond Wednesday morning with a one hundred feet seine and the result was a complete water haul.

A Beautiful and Touching Tribute by Her Pastor. The funeral services of Mrs. D S Reid. conducted from the First Bap tist church at 5 o'clock Wednesday af ternoon, by the pastor, Rev. Dr. Brown, assisted by B shop Rrndtbal er and Rev Robt E. Caldwell, were attended bv a lare concourse of sym patlrz'ng friends It was one of the most impressive sprvices ever held in the Twin City. During Dr. Brown's remarks nearlv the entire c?gry?'V,--! were nived to tears "And so shall we ever be with the Lord," was his subject, chosen from 1st -Thessalonians 4:17. He referred to the beautiful life and character of the deceased and said to him it was like preaching the funeral of a member of his own family. Mrs. Reid's bunday school class accompanied the - members of the family and eight of them, five young ladies and three young men, decorated the casket with lovely flowers. THE MEMORIAL READ. Dr. Brown read the following beau tiful memoir : Sister Mary Banks Reid, wife of Bro. D S Reid, was born in Halifax county, Va , October 9th, 1844, and departed this life June. 22nd, 1897; aged 52 years, 8 months and 13 days. When a child her father moved from Halifax county, to Person county, N. C, and after a residence of several years, located near Abbott's Creek in Davidson county. On the 18th of Octooer, 1871, she was happily married to Bro. D. S. Reid and their union was blessed with six children, three of whom preceded her to the heavenly home, while the other three remain to mourn their loss. She was possessed of a very happy disposition which always ma e her presence in Xhe home a benedic tion tr all who were associated with her. Kindness to everybody was a leading characteristic of her life. For more than 25 years she had lived with her husband without giv ing or receiving one ill-tempered word. Like a broadening and deep ening vein their affections bad flowed on through the changing years. Sne was a devoted wife entering sympa thetically into all the successes and reverses of her husband's life. To be with him and to contribute to his comfort constituted one of the chief jojs of her earthly existence. She was a patient and loving mother, ready to make any sacrifice for the welfare of the dear children whom God had given into her care. With unwearying in dustry she endeavored to make home the sweetest and brightest place on eart h to her cherished sons. While she was yet young she made a profession of faith in Christ and connected herself with the Baptist church at Abbott's Creek. After her marriage she moved her membership to Suu3ttierfieit5".-L5ayiisi --char;!"-, Guil ford county, and when she made tier home in Winston, in the year 1877, she joined the First Baptist church of tnis city. Since that time she has been one of the most faitnrui and un tiring workers. She has, for many years, enioyed in a aiarkea degree, ine sweet evidences of a blessed assurance of .her personal salvation, bhe loved her church, her hunday scuooi, ana every department oi laocr ior ner blessed Lord. She was greatly con cerned about having a larger house of worship for her church, and for this object she had been planning and working for many montus. sne maae tender mention of her interest in this matter during her last hours on earth and asked that her cherished plans might be carried out. For more than twelve montns Be fore her death she had grown increas ingly fond of searching the Scriptures daily. It had been noticed by all the members of the nousenold now rie- quently 6he had made mention of the help she had gotten irom ner aany reading of the word of God. Many of the most precious promises were at her tongue's end. Little did her loved ones think that through this silent companionship her spirit was beink ripened for the inheritance of the Saints in light. Her eyes were opened so that she beheld wondrous things in liod's law. "tns wora was a lamp to her feet and a light to her path." ! After her ratal injury on j?riaay last, she lingered until Tuesday 2 o'clock p. m. uurintr nose nours oi Intense physical suffering she bore frequent testimony to the precious ness of Christ to her soul. Some of those testimonies were surpassingly beautiful and triumphant. Many en couraging words were spoken to those about her and many kind messages left for absent friends. She wanted to hear, ere she passed over the river. a description of the beautiful city, with its gates of pearl and Its streets of gold. The 21st chapter of Revela tions was read and she said: "I shall soon be there and I'll be watching and waiting at the beautiful gates." And who will say that there may not have come to her enraptured vision a view of the shining city and the beau tiful gates and that she may not have beard the echoes of heavenly music while she was nassing out of the shadows of earth? "Oh the transporting rapturous scene That rises to my sight; " Sweet fields arrayed in living green And rivers of delight. "O'er all these wide extended plains, Shines one eternal day. Where God the Son forever reigns And scatters night away." Bev. Dr. J. Jj. White Here. Rev. J. L. White, of Macon, Ga , ar rived here Tnursday from Roanoke, 1 where be has been assisting in a big tent meeting. It was a fine meeting, there being about, 200 professions.

UNCLE SAMAND SPAIN THE ADMINISTRATION PLAYING A WAITING GAME- The Talk About the Critical Stage Having Been Reached Is Founded. Upon the Hopes of Cuban Sym pathizers, Not Upon Facts. By Telegraph to The Sentinel. Washington, June 26. The opin ion seems well grounded that the present administration will play a waiting game for a while with Spain over the Cuban question. When it is remembered that Congress expects to arljourn the middle of July and Minister Woodford don't expect to go to Madrid until after that, and t hat a change of Consul General at Havana is still longer postponed, it is evident that much of the talk about the "critical stage" of things having been reached is founded rather upou the hopes of the Cuban sympathizers than upon any outgiving from Ad ministration headquarters. It is true there is a crisis, but it is on Capitol Hill rat her than in the White Hi use. If the House can be held down till the tariff bill is out of the Senate, that will become Its primary business, of course, till the conference is finished and the enrolled bill is sent to the President. The Senate may rant and roar, but in the huge game which is playiug here now one speaker with his own ! code of rules is wort ten Semites with out any rules worth mentioning. A LIE NAILED. Allen Denies Bateman's Charge Against Bryan. Immediately after the prayer in the Senate Wednesday, Mr. Allen (Nebras ka) arose to a question of personal privilege In connection with the con duct of the last campaign. There was much interest in the statement, as Mr. Allen was chairman of the Populistic National convention, Mr. Allen read a published press dispatch from Lewiston, Me., stating that Prof. L C. Bateman, candidate of the People's party of Maine, for Governor last year, was out in an attack on Wiu. J. Bryan, to the effect that Mr. Bryan's gift of $1,500 to the Populis tic National committee was witu the distiuct understanding that no action against fusion should be taken by the Populistic National convention. Mr. Allen made a sweeing denial. He said Mr. Bryan had determined to divide the royalties on his book, and in doing so lie allotted $1,500 to the Populistic party. The draft was sent to Mr. Allen, but the chairman cf the Populistic National committee (Sena tor Butler, of North Carolina.) de clined to accept it. Thereupon, at the suggestion of Mr. Bryan, Mr. Al ltd invested the amount to be used in the interest of bi uaettallism. Mr. Allen declared that the statement i hat any agreement existed as to fu sion, in connection with the gift, was "an absolute and unqualified false hood." There had never been, he de clared, an attempt to fuse the parties, either nationally or locally. Mr Al len also specifically denied the state ment that Mr. Bryan forged his (Al lenV) name to the list appended to the letter of notification. The Senator closed with a high tribute to Mr. Bry an and an arraignment of Prof. Bate man. 3IR. BOLTON'S APPOINTMENT. It Slay Go Over Until After Congress Adjourns.

Tdk Sentinel stated yesterdiy afternoon that one of Winston's visi tor's came near dying from strong drink. The party referred to wa W. E Young, who died in the office of Dr.. F. arrlngton about half an hour after we went to press. Mr. Youcg, who was about 40 years old, came to Winston about six weeks ago. He was employed by the con tractor to superintend the construc tion of the large dam at the Yadkin river for the "harness enterprise " He was drinking when he arrived here, and received treatment from Dr Fearnngton for several days. His home wa at Sutherlin. Vt, near which place is the large Buff ilo farm, which he claimed to own Dr. Fear rington was also informed that the Star tobacco warehouse in Danville was the property of the deceased. Mr. Young sent for Dr. Fearrington about uoon yesterday. He had had several convulsions when the Dr. found him behind Smith's bar-room. Two men carritd him to the physi cian's office. Young remained conscious all the time and told Dr. Fearrington that lie could not live; that be wanted to die His watch, bank book and other pa pers were turned over to the physician. He also gave instructions regardiug his body. Said all his near relatives were dead ; that he had no family and was never married Slid his cousin. J. R Chaney, lived at Sutherlin, ar d that bis remains should be shipped to him. When askid bow much whiskey he had drank, Young replied that he took thirty drinks within forty min utes.

He was due the hotel about $30 for board, but Mr. Jones believes he will be i aid His truuk and bicycle are now in Mr. Jones' possession. Dr. Fearrington sent a telegram to Sutherlin last evening asking for in structions about the burial. He re ceived a reply to bis message this morning whicn reads as follows: "Prepare Young's body and send to me here by first train." Dr Fearrington purchased a beauti ful casket and robe for Young. The funeral expenses will be about $90, for which the Dr. became responsible. Young's bank book showed that he deposited $160 on the Hh inst. Since then he has drawn out about $60 of that amount. The body was shipped to Sutherlin, Va., this morning. It left on the 10:30 train. The physician's certifi cate stated that Young died from al cohol poisoning. Mr. H. E. Fries went over to the river last evening, leaving here a few minutes after Young's death. He telegraphed back to Dr. Fearrington to follow Young's instructions re garding bis burial, as the parties over at the river were uninformed as to bis family. THK PUBLIC PRINTINO.

Topeka, Kan., June 24 The worst hail storm known in tbe history of Kansas struck this city shortly after 6 o'clock tonight. Hail stones weigh ing 12 to 16 ounces stripped tbe trees of their foliage, smashed window panes on every hand, including the finest plate glass store fronts, cut down telegraph and telephone wires, riddled awnings and inflicted unpre cedented damage throughout the city. Dogs were struck in the streets and instantly killed. Horses were knock ed to their knees. Runaways occurr ed throughout the city. When the fury of the storm had passed, dead birds were found everywhere A heavy wind and terrific lightning ac companied the storm Topeka to night looks like a city that has with stood a siege of war guns. There are not a dozen buildings in town that are not almost windowleKS and many roofs were caved in. The roofs of street cars also were pierced. The damage wrought can better be imagined when it is known that the hailstones ranged in size from that of a hen's egg to an ostrich egg, and that thirty minutes after the" storm one hailstone was picked up which meas ured fourteen inches in circumference. Surgeons are busy dressing the wounds of persons injured in the storm and reports of injuries continue to be received. Many were hurt In runaways on the streets. LYNCHING IN -MISSISSIPPI.
