I reason to hope that nothIng more will
be heard of the socIalIst Incident , except
the strengthening or the disciplinary powers
of the Helchstag. The Cologne Oazete , In
an Inspired article , says that Chancellor von
lohenlohe Is not a man to run his head
against a wall ; on the contrary , he wilt
leave no stone unturned to obtain from the
Helehstag by calm negotiations what he requires -
quires In order 10 fulfill that on whIch he
lays mos weight. Any conflict with the
Helehstag would render the ntalnment or

Gresham's communicaton to congress rela-
tve to paying $425,000 for lerlng sea s51zure
Is occasioning much discussion among those
who Ilve been giving attention to the sub-
jc ct. Hcpresentatve II or Illinois , who
Introduced tine resolution calling for the In-
rormaton , Is not yet satisfied that the Unied
States should pay the luml } stll of $ 12 , OOO
for the seizure , as he says the positve evidence -
dence already adduced shows this amount
to be extremnnely exc sslve. : lr. Ht points , (
out that the original claims , , as fed , toot
up to $439,000 , which Is little lore than
the amount ot the proposed cpmpromlse.
o this $139.000 , : lr. lt says , 35 , OOO Is
for f "probable earnings , " "estimniated catch , "
e tc. That is . the ships claim large dam-
e gos for what thcy might have earned I
thcy t had not been seized , so that three-
fourths or their claim Is for ProsPective or
remote damages and only omne-fourtn for
damnges actually ' sustained.
Mr. Ilt sa's'thls ( theory ot Prospective
damages was expressly repudiated before
the fatuous Alabamn awards cornmnilssion. I
was then held that the Unied States could
not recover for what a number or American
ships might mayo done It they had not been
selzell. The congressman SIS this precedent -
dent and others settles the principle or Inter-
nutonal law , that remote damages cannot
be collected.
1 Is also shown that of the eighteen ships
claiming damages ten were American ships.
Some of these American sealers were flying
the BriIsh fag merely for the sale or
a voiding detection. : lr. 1lt urges that It Is
not for Great Britain to collect alleged dam-
ages to American slmhi ) . The claIms of these
American ships arc Included In the settle-
ment m of $42&.000. alhough Mr. Htt says
that the United States should deal with its I
awn ships In Its own way and not through ,
Oreat Britain as an ritermediary. After
deductng the $357,000 for "probable earn , '
Ings" lt l and further dcuctng the claims or
the t ten American ships , : lr. lull hold that
there Is very little left of the original
c lauim , . and that $42&,000 Is far In excess of
what It ought to be.

W'ASIIINGTON Dec. 23.-The annual re -
port of the Board ot Ordnance and lortf-
catons , sent to congress yesterday by Secretary -
retary Lament , contains descriptions of the i
various experiments and tests that have
been made during the year ended October
3 1. The year , the board reports has been m
one ct positive and satisfactory advance
The want ot a , sulabl dlsappearlig car
riage for the eight-Inch and ten-Inch high
power guns which has so long retarded the ,
completon ot emplacement has beau - eb-
v iateti . so that we now have carriages of rr r
American invention unequalled for rapidiy r
ot action by anything heretofore Invented.
The suppply ot seacoast guns ts co.nty )
Increasing i , and the mounts arc fully developed -
eloped for each of the calibers. Thnt there
are additional candidates for favor need not L
delay the supply ot those already tested and I
approved for thc sites to which they arm S '
The development and test of auxiliary de-
ft ences . such as submarine mInes mOvabla
orpedoes t rapid-firing guns and range and
position fInders . are said .to have reached a
stage where we huve only to make a choice
or the best. All are In good condition and
In n high state ot advancem nt. Among
the fields to be further explored are the
investigation anti development of smolleless :
powders , further experiments with high explosIves -
plosIves to determine one or mere that a
be safely frell with the hlchest velocly ]
now obtalr d from high power guns ; new
types t ot center.plnte carriages for the eight
Inch guns anti ten-Inch guns , with reterence
to the greatest cover , compactness and speell
of maneuvering ; the possible development c
a dIsappearIng carrIage for twelve.lneh guns ;
the t development of armored casement bat
teries anti turrets for eight-Inch guns . which
arc all the department requlrol ot them ;
the development and test ot new projectile S
and armor plates.
The board , tine report concludes , feels justi

seven negroes have been tnlen In the last
t twent-four hours In revenge for that of
ono white man anti unless nil signs fall utterly -
terly many more lives arc In jeopard Two
bodies of eletermlneel men , between 40 and
GOO In all , very man being heaviy armed
amI each body about equal In numerical
strenglh to the other , separated by less than

mluutethat I the spectacle presented here
In Brooks county tonigint
One body Is mace up . or . stern , determined
whlo rlen bent on revenge for the brutal I
murder m ot one of the best citIzens or this I
c onty. Tine other ts made UII ot negroes , ,
terror t stricken and fearful lest they amid
their t families be made the objects of a slm-
lrr fate that has already befallen several I
ot their number , and are reatiy to defend ,
thelmc\s ns wEl as Ihey may bo able
What the next tweut-tour moans will I
bring torth no one can predic ; that there i
w ill be an open clah SEems much morc I
than probable at this wrltn . The authorl-
t ics are powerless and practically no efforts I
have h yet been made to bring about peace ,
ave by the relatives of the man whose mur-
cer Is the cause of It nil.
On Thursday Joseph hem , one ot
Brooks county's most prosperous farmers I
a mid best citizens , was murderec by a party
of negrccs , and It leaked out that ( the IdlIng .
i mig of Isom was a mart ot n plot to kill al I
the whites who were In the 110SSO which a
few weeks ago arrested Jesse Jelreth % for
the killing of T. loulden. Isom lived ten I
mies north or here In n part of the county
where the negroes outnumber the whites ,
ami the killing caused great excl ment.
When It developed that the same gng of r
negroes had sworn to kill olher white men I
the white gathered together ns I by one
aceor,1 and the work ot death anti destruc-
ton began.
Ot tine seven who arc dead the flannel
or only tour could be obtained this after
fl000. A reporter visited the scene late
this t evening. Every cross roads was found I
picketed with sentinels . and every man In
the country Is armed to the teeth. When
on ot these race excitements occur King
Terror rules In the homes of whites as wel ;
as blacks ; and thIs Is such a case.
There are probably 500 men In arms , cover
Ing i an area at about five square nniles .
About a mile and a half trom the home ot
the Isoms were about 200 whites , all , svel
' al wel
arm T d and breathing alt sorts vengeauco ,
A mile ' further was n crowd ot negroes ot I I :
about the same size , armed wih Winches
tar "rIOes , pistols . axes , e"bs anti every ;
a valabl2 weapon , waiting for the whites to' '
attack them. They are entrenched In and (
around n lot ot negro cabins In the midst
ot n thin grove , and the latest informatlot ins
Is i that Inc whites
s are advancing on them :
front two sides.
Sam Taylor , Elx Frazer , Sam Pike and
Henry Sherard are tour negroes known to
have been killed. I Is understood that
'Vaverly l-ke. Jim McCal and I negro
named Herring were probably the otiners
The country Is comparatvely sparsely set
ted , and the facilities for securing Informa-
ton are very meager.
PIke ts the negro who killed Isom le
has been In hilng near where the C
has occurred.
When the reporter left tine scene there
seemed every likelihood ot a pltehcd batte
tonight. Captain E. Tlmnn , brother-tn-
law of Isom , was , however , doing , g
In his power to restrain the whites. H
had hurrlell messengers all over the county
summoning to his aid . conservative men In I
the hope that they would prevent further
bloodshed. I will be Impossible to Imow
tonight hol well they succeetleol
Details or.the killing of the seven negroes
are very meager. Taylor , Frazer Pike and
'Sherard were together about sunset last
night. They were regarded ns four of the
ringleaders ot the conspiracy to ki
and burn , and were being espe- i
daily sought for A halt dozen whites : ,
one ot whom Is said to have been
Isoinn's brother.ln-Iaw , came upon them sot I-
denly , and ordered them to submit to an I.-
rest. One of the negroes answered with a
shot that struck one ot the whites , and tour
ot the blacks were shot down In their
tracks Time other three were caught , on
at a time.
Many of 150m's neIghbor are In the I
crowd , and will not lsten to any peacerul
talk They declare that ( for tine sales of f
their wives and children ant for their own
safety they must stamp out the gang that
has sworn to murder , ant tonight that
spIrit seems the predominant one , I the
fight comes , It will be a desperate ono.
The kIllIng ot Iom occurred In lie publc
roall , not tar frol hIs home , anti the circumstances -
cumstances attending It seemell to throw
doubt on the conspIracy theory. Mr. Iso am
was hero Thursday , and while In town had
some words with Waverly Pik f , a negro
hiving In his vicinity. Apparently everything
was smoothed over when ho left for Imomni Ic .
After arriving there he started with lien : ry
Tlmmon , his brother-In-law , for Captain
Thnmon's home about hair I mile from
Isoni's . They met four negroes . Pike ant
\Vest McCal were on horseback , time two
Herring boys In a wagon They came near
riding over JSOI , who remnionstrated He I
said : "Look out ; don't run over me , " and
hall stepped out ot the way. Just then
PI'e ' drew I pistol , and without a wonl
Ired , tine bullet piercing Isommn's heart Pike m
and : lcCal fred three bhots at the prc (5- (
( rate body of homo and then broke for
their horses. Pike lalle his escal1e , but : Ie.
Cal and the Herrings were arrested , an 11
are In jail . In this present exelement time re
Is grave danger of tine three being lyncine ti.
