THE STORMIEST DAY YET.
The Weather Too Had for the Violet
and the President'Iny 'IJnvo to o
Norfolk, Va., Dee. 13 President
Cleveland and his party have sue
ceeded today in thoroughly losing
themselves to the outside world, for
no one knows where he is at present.
The Violet was to haye left Hatters
today, but whether she did so or
not, is unknown, for a gale has been
raging oyer the North Carolina
sounds, and the wireo between Kitty
Hawk and Hatters are down. At
Kitty Hawk, the wind blew at a rate
of G8 miles an hour and wa3 prob
ably much heavier at Hatter3. io
vessels have arrived from North
Carolina waters and it is the opinion
of sailing masters that the Violet
could not have made the run up
Pamlico Sound nnder the heavy
winds prevaling. The water in the

on her way to Norfolk, nov? mes3-.

Saturday she gave bond a d was re

got as far as tho railroad and heard
o! his mother's trouble and returned
to aid her. It is not thought that
she did the act herself, as there is
good evidence as to others and
other arrests will be made as &oon
as possible. The cause of the burn
ing is thought to be on account of
sickness, as the mill pond covered
several acres and consequently
caused chills and fever for several
miles around. But burning1 the mill
had no effect on the health of the
community, for since the burning
the pond has been there and still
romains, and a3 the new mill m evi

some time yet.

Will Harrison Marry?
The most intimate frienda of ex
President Harrison here are settling
down to the belief that he intends to
marry Mrs. Mary Dimmink. Those
who were the most sceptical a few
days ago now admit that the con
duct of the general indicates there
is a foundation for the story.
A score of newspaper men haye
called at the Harrison homestead
since Sunday night to ask about the
report. They haye iayanably been
denied information. The general
h&3 firmly refused to discuss the sub
ject at all.
This 13 not ia keeping with the
general's rule. His name has been
coupled with tlr's or that woman
frtqnentlv during tho last year, and
wh .n asked about it his ansvu In
variably "There h not a v.'ord
of t'-uth in it."
One of the men who h closest to
General Harrison s.:,id to me to-day:
'-The members of the family huve

if 3aoh a thing would likely occur.
