DAMAGE DONE TO t SOOTH'S FRUIT Growers in Southeast Georgia Will not Get Single Shipment of Peaches. OTHER CROPS ARE HURT BY FREEZE Truck Farms, Yonng Cotton and Corn Laid Low in Some Sections?An Inch of ice at Radford and Frnit Endangered. Bristol, Tenn., April 17.?Snow fell at intervals this morning in southwest Virginia. Although the temperature was three degrees below freezing, there was no frost, and it is not thought ser? ious damage has been done to the fruit crops. r Radford, Va., April 17.?The ther? mometer fell to 28 last night and ice froze an inch thick. Phone reports from various parts of the county differ widely as to the damage done to the fruits. Some of the farmers think that the fruit is killed. Others say it is in? jured but slightly, and that tonight is the critical time. If the wind lays all the fruit will be killed. Former Governor Tyler, who is deep? ly interested in farming, seems hopeful that the damage is not great. Columbus, Ga., April 17.?There was considerable frost here and in this sec-1 tionthis morning and a good deal of young cotton was killed. Young vege? tables were killed. It is cold tonight and frost tomorrow morning would not be surprising. Fort Valley, Ga., April 17.-The fruit in this section is not damaged to any appreciable extent. The heavy winds of Saturday night and Sunday had so thoroughly dried everything that there - was little frost except in low and ex? posed places. Beans are reported kill? ed and some tomato plants. W. C. Wright, an extensive planter here, says that his peaches are not hurt. W. W. Henderson states that he has made a careful examination today and finds no damage. Some peaches were hurt by the frost of ten days ago, but the dam? age is small and from present indica? tions there will be a large crop in this section. Columbia, S. C, April 17.-A killing frost which spread practically all over South Carolina this morning, has done great damage to the peach crop in a section of this state known as the * 'ridge. ' ' Although the amount of dam? age will be hard to estimate for some time, it is certain that the crop wit) be very much depleted. Great damage was also done to truck and to all ten? der vegetables. The frost this morning was several days later than the record. Charlotte, N. C,, April 17.?A special j from Newbern, N. C., says: "The! frost last night worked great damage to all truck crops in this vicinity, Re? ports from Craven, Carteret, Pamlico, Jones and Onslow are to the effect that the potato crop is ruined and that beans have been killed except where protect? ed. Ice formed here, and in some sec? tions in this region is reported a quar? ter of an inch thick. The mercury reg? istered 31. The extent of the financial loss is estimated at thousands of dol? lars. Gainsville, Ga., April 17.-Almost the entire peach crop in northeast Georgia was killed by last night's freeze. Grow? ers state that there will not be enough grown for a single shipment. Vegeta? tion of all kinds was hurt. The ther y mometer registered 29 degrees and ice was half an inch thick. Americas, Ga., April 17.-A killing frost covered this entire section this morning, doing immense damage to truck farms and field crops. A great J deal of young cotton is reported killed, and the entire crop stunted to consid- J ?rable degree. All varieties of vegeta- ? bles were more or less injured, the more tender plants being killed outright. Thin ice was visible in low damp places. The extent of the injury done the peach orchards, If any, eannot yet be deter? mined, though hope is expressed that heavy foliage probably protected the fruit. Fear is entertained of further damage tonight as the weather is clear and very cold. ORDER IN SECURITIES CASE Certificates of Stock Being Sent In to Head Office and Distribution Will Soon Begin.

Yan daw, a conspicuous figure in Norfolk for over fifty years, claimed up to the time of his death that he was entitled to a large fortune in California.

BOYS STAMPEDE FOUR ARE KILLED False Alarm of Fire Throws Indian opolis Newsies into a Fatal Panic. CROWDED INTO NARROW STAIRWAY. Crushed to Death Under Weight of Terror Stricken Youths?Several More May Die-They Scrambled for Passes. Indianapolis, Ind., April 17.?Fren? zied by a false alarm of fire, several hundred news boys struggled to obtain free tickets to a show by a patent med? icine advertising company, stampeded in a narrow stairway in the Masonic Temple tonight, crushing the life out of four boys and probably fatally injuring several other children. Long before the time appointed for the distribution of free tickets the stairs of Masonic Temple at the southwest corner of Washington street and Capi? tol avenue, were crowded with a push? ing, yelling crowd of children, mostly news boys, each anxious to be first to receive a pass. When the distribution began the excitement, became more in? tense and the efforts of several police? men to maintain order were unavailing. It is alleged by a witness that one of the boys in an endeavor to hasten the exit of those who had received passes, shouted "fire!" At this instant boys began to force a way to the bottom of the steps. Shrieks and physical en? counters followed and those at the top became so closely entangled that the mass of boys fell in a mass at the bot? tom of the stairs. Policemen from the central station re? sponded to a riot call and began to ex? tricate the smothering boys. Four boys were dead when uncovered. The boys fought desperately to get free and dozens were injured by the first crush or were hurt by the subsequent scram? ble for air. An immense crowd of people attracted by the wild shouts jostled about the mass of boys and aided in the work of the ambulance corps. The dead were sent to a morgue for identification. The seriously injured were sent to a hospital, while many who suffered slight injuries were sent home. ? LATE WAR NEWS. London, April 17.?A dispatch from Hongkong late this afternoon says that a portion of the Russian fleet has reach? ed a bay in the China Sea north of Hongkong. The report shows that Ad? miral Rojestvensky and Admiral Togo are now but a short distance apart, and that the Russian admiral is rushing steadily on to challenge the Japanese fleet to battle. The seizure by the Japanese of Rus? sian colliers is believed to have spirited Admiral Rojestvensky on to the fight. Hongkong, April 17.?The steamer Brynhilde arrived this morning and re? ports that she was held up by the Rus? sian warships Friday sixty mites north of Cape Padaran. After searching her papers she was allowed to proceed. The captain counted thirty-three Russian warships in the fleet, to which three cruisers were attached. The warships were steaming northeast at the rate of ten knots, near Cape Padaran, on the coast of Cochin China, about one hun? dred and fifty miles northeast of Saigon. St. Petersburg, April 17.?A large number of naval officers have been or? dered to proceed to Libau for duty in connection with the preparation of the fourth squadron, which it is proposed to send to the far east. London, April 17.?A dispatch to the Reuter Telegraph Co. from Saigon, Cochin China, says that the Japanese have captured a large number of col? liers along the coast. A message to Lloyds from Singapore says the German steamer Devawenges reports passing the Russian fleet on the morning of April 14 in about latitude thirteen degrees north. The vessels were lying to at that time. Mrs. Danz Must Hany. Philadelphia, April 17.?By a vote of five to two, the supreme court today decided that Mrs. Catherine Danz must hang for the murder of her husband, William G. Danz. George P. Hossey, a colored voodoo doctor, has also receiv? ed the death sentence for the part he took in the murder of Danz. Danz died under peculiar circumstances and a post-mortem examination of the re? gains revealed the fact that he had died of arsenical poisoning. Both Mrs, Danz and Hossey were arrested charged with the murder of Danz. The woman testified that she had bought powders from Hossey and administered them to her husband for the purpose of curing ?he drink habit. She claimed not to have known ?he contents of the pow? ders, Hossey was first placed op trial and convicted of having sojd powders containing arsenic and which, the prose? cution alleged, killed Danz. At the con? clusion of Hossey's trial Mrs. Danz was tried on the charge of murder for hav? ing administered the poisonous powders. She was also convicted and both were sentenced to, be hanged. An appeal WSI faken to the supreme court by the womai.'.-: counsel, but today's decision legves only the pardon board between the woman and the gallows. The chair of dramatic literature in the University of California has been offered to Ben Greet, the actor-manager, who brought "Every" to America. This is probably the first time in history that an actor has been honored in this partic? ular way. JOHN PAUL JONES' BODY FOUND TAUT AFTER 100 YEARS Ambassador Porter's Five Years' Sea in Paris is Rewarded. Corpse In Alcohol in Leaden Cofflin Paris, April 14.- The body of J< Paul Jones, founder of the Amerii navy has been found after a remarka search. The credit belongs to Ambas dor Porter, who has directed the sea for five years. The body has not o been found, but was identified today the highest French medical experts. The body is well preserved, consid ing that it was interred more than years ago. Ambassador Porter cabled to Wa: ington tonight announcing his succe When Congress recently took no act: upon the President's *recommendati for the expenses incident to the sean the Ambassador continued the extensi labors at his own expense. A lar force of workmen has been engag night and day tunneling and cross-tu neling the old St. Louis Cemetery. Tl constituted a huge operation, embracii nearly a block covered with buildin and requiring a system of subterrane; mining. ' IN A LEADEN COFFIN. Hundreds of wooden caskets we found, but not until Wednesday we unearthed four leaden coffins which ga' promise of containing the body of tl admiral. Three of them bore nan plates. The fourth showed a superi Solidity of workmar ship. No plate w; found on this coffir, and it is suppos< was removed when another was supe imposed on it. The leaden coffin was opened in tl presence of General Porter, Colon Bailey-Blanchard. the second s?cr?tai of the American Embassy and Engine? Weis, who has been directing the e: cavations. The body was found to 1 well preserved, owing to its being in mersed in alcohol. It was wrapped i a sheet with a packing of straw an hay. Those present were immediate] struck with the resemblance of the hea to that on the medallions and busts c Admiral Jones. As was anticipated, no uniform, dec oration or sword were found, as all sue articles had been accounted for afte the burial of Jones. The coffin is shaped like the mumm; coffins which were common at that pe riod, widening from the feet to th ahoulders with a round top fitting ove the head. The coffin was taken to the medica school, where Drs. Captain and Papil laut, distinguished professors of th? school of anthropology and recognize? authorities on such investigations, wer? charged with making a thorough exami nation for the purpose of identification, To facilitate this the Ambassador fur uished them with portraits and medal? lions, two busts by Houdin and authen? tic descriptions of the color of the ad? miral's hair and the height and meas? urement of his body, PROOFS OF IDENTITY. After the most minute examination the following facts werefully substanti? ated:? Length of the body 5 feet 7 inches, the admiral's exact height. Size and shape of the head agree with several peculiarities identical with the head of the admital. Hair dark brown, the same as the ad? miral's, in places slightly gray, indica? ting a person of his age, 45 years. The hair is long, reaching below the shoul? ders, and is combed back and gathered in a clasp at the back of the neck. Face clean shaved, corresponding ex? actly with the descriptions, portraits and busts of the admiral, The linen is in good condition. One article bears the initial either '"J" or a inverted "P." The body was carefully packed. The limbs were wrapped in tinfoil presuma? bly for sea transportation, as indicated in a letter of the Admiral's nearest friend and pallbearer at his funeral, Colonel Blackden, who said:? "His body was put in a leaden 'coffin so that in case the United Status, which he had so essentially served, should claim his remains they might be more easily removed." ACTUALLY MADE AUTOPSY. Finding that all the internals organs were singularly well preseved the doc? tors made an autopsy which showed dis? tinct proofs of the disease from which the Admiral is known to have died. The identification was pronounced complete in every particular. The body will be placed in a hand? some coffin and deposited in the receiv ing vault of the American Church on Avenue De l'Aima, until Ambassador Porter can learn the opinion of the Government concerning the most appro? priate means of transporting it to the United United States and giving a fit? ting sepulchre to the body of the illus? trious sailor whose place of burial had BO long remained a mystery. HOME MISSION MATTER. Mrn. H. G. Perry, Editor. The missionary movement is growing and developing in our own land and in many foreign countries. Some of the best educated young men and young women in the South and elsewhere are giving their lives to this great work and shall wo who have reaped the benefit of living in a land of Bibles and churches and in a land of plenty, as we Tazewell people enjoy, still treat this important subject with indifference. It is true that some of us give a small portion of our time and our money to missions, but the ones who do the most do not do enough, and alas! how many are there who do nothing at all? The day is past when civilized people object to missions, either home.or foreign, so that we must conclude that it is indifference which causes such ajack of effort on the part of our people. As the Eastertide is drawing near, when we celebrate the resurrection of our blessed Lord, let us renew our alle? giance to Him, and let us especially in our Home Mission Society be more faith? ful in work and in prayer that we may have some part in bringing about the great and glorious time when our peo? ple shall be saved from their sins. Woman's Board of Missions. Montgomery, Ala., April 17.?The Woman's Board of Home Missions of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, today heard the report of work among Japanese, Chinese and Cubans who came to this country, which showed that many converts had been made. Dr. C. F. Reid, Oakland, Cal., was not pres? ent but a paper by him on "Pacific Coast Work" among the Japanese and Chinese, was read. Papers were read by Miss Reid, principal of Ruth Har? grove Seminary, Key West, Fia., on Cuban work, and on "Supplies," by Mrs. J. H. Yarbrough, Nashville, T? mi. Mrs. W. H. Johnson, financial agent of the home mission and training-school, made a report of work accomplished. Two scholarship subscriptions for young women at Scarritt Bible Training School, Kansas City, Mo., were an? nounced by President Belle Bennett, of Richmond, Ky. The chairman of the standing press committee, Mrs. Somer ville, of Greenville, Miss., also submit? ted a report. First Fin- Under New Law.

White, the new city judge, warned Bell that a a repetition would call for a fine of $100. This is the first penalty assessed in Indiana since the anti-cigar? ette bill became effective. Madison, Ind., April 18.-As the re? sult of the arrest of John M.

MINES ARE IN PATH TO NORTH Fleet Separated in I wo Divisions, M hile Japanese Fleet is (loncenlruted. Japs Are Raiding Russian Colliers. London, April 18.--Dispatches re? ceived here this morning from Hong Kong and Manila indicate that Admiral Togo has Admiral Rojestvensky in a trap from which there is little chance for extricating himself, and in the meantime the Japanese are playing havoc with his colliers and supply ships The path to the north is through For? mosa straits and the waters are liter? ally sowed with mines, making it suici? dal for Rojestvensky to attempt to go in that direction. Ile ig cut oft from the Vladivostok base of supplies com? pletely. Admiral Togo's fleet is in touch with the Russian fleet and the Japanese scout ships are raiding the colliers and depriving the Russian admiral of the necessary coal, which will prevent his sailing to the Pacific without a battle. According to the latest advices, kbs Russian fleet is divided into two divi? sions. One is located in Turan bay and j the other off Hong Kong. Togo's fleet is concentrated and he can attack either Russian division with a superior force. The indications now are that Rojest? vensky is in a very precarious position and that it will be nothing short of a miracle if he escapes without the loan of his, entire fleot to the Japanese ad? miral. Singapore, April 18.?The Russian fleet coaled in Kamranh Bay on Sat? urday according to a report received here by the steamship Huisang which has just arrived. The steamship re-1 ports passing Kamranh at nppn Satur? day and seeing ths Bnwisw Meet engag? ed in coaling. Tokio, April 18.?Taugara strait, the, eastern entrance to the Japan sea and | the port of Vladivostok has been pro, claimed to be within the Japanese zone of defense aud the usual restrictions have been placed upon navigation there, j The strait is almost directly east pf Vladivostok which is Rojestvensky's ultimate place of refuge. Japanese papers say the neutrality law is being violated by the Russian fleet being in Kamranh bay, and insist that Russia is using that point as a base of operations against the Japanese fleet. Sergius' Slayer Guts Death Sentence. Moscow, April 18.? The supreme court today imposed the death sentence on Kaleieff, who killed Grand Duke Ser? gius. The only persons present through the trial were members of the entourage of the late Grand Duke Sergius and coun? sel, of whom two were assigned to Kaleieff. TJie prisoner's mother was not admitted, but remained in the cor? ridor. When Kaleieff was arraigned he re? plied: ?'I am not a criminal and you ara not my judges. ? am your prisoner. We have a civil war; I am a prisoner of war, not a criminal." Twelve witnesses were examined. Prior to passing sentence the president, asked Kaleieff if he wpuld. repeat tha crime if he were given his liberty. He replied. "Without doubt I would repeat it if ordered by the revolutionary committee, to which I am attached." When sentence of death was passed Kaleieff shouted: "Execute your judgment as openly as I have acted before the eyes of all." Fire in. Hotel Cost Two Lives.
