Sensational Affair, at the Bicycle Race In
Madison Saaare, New York City.
By Telagraph to the Horning Star.
New York, December 9. An hour
after the big bicycle race ended in
Madison Square to-night, and during
the excitement attending a fifteen-mile
pursuit race, Frederick S. Slater, of
Rahway, N. J., seated in one of the
lower boxes, was shot and mortally
wounded by Walter Rosser, 19 years
old, a medical student from Steven
son, Ala., living in this city. The
shooting occurred as the result of a
quarrel over a bet the men had made
on the result of the six-day race.
Slater was taken to Bellevue hospital.
He , was shot in the left breast and
it stated there that he cannot live.
There were eleven thousand or
twelve thousand persons in the big
amphitheatre at the time, and some of
these rushed at Rosser. Two hundred
policemen charged through the mob
with drawn clubs, and, surrounding
Rosser, hurried him through the
crowd. Rosser was intoxicated.
THE FLORIDA CENTRAL.
Unable to Make Traffic Arrangements for
By Telegraph to the Morning Star.
Savannah, Ga., Dec. 9. There has
been much speculation respecting
the arrangements that would be made
by which the Florida Central and
Peninsula railway might continue its
through service between Florida and
Washington, following the severance
of relations between the Southern and
the F. C. & P., which latter has
become a part of the Seaboard system
It transpired to-day that satisfactory
arrangements had not been m de
with either the Southern or the
Atlantic ' Coast ' Line for a
through service, necessitating the
suspension by the F. C. & P. of its
through trains until such time as the
Seaboard system can complete its con
necting link of track between Cheraw,
S. C, and Columbia. The F. C. & P.
trains, however, will make close con
nection with the Southern at Colum
bia. The Uolumbia-Cheraw link is
nearing completion, when through
trains to Washington will be resumed.

WILL GREATLY CRIPPLE
J HE SCHOOL SYSTEM
Attorney (leneral "Walzer Says tbystate
Superintendent Must Recogniz the
J'-. Old Fasioa Boards.
Special Star Telegram. .
Raleigh, N. C, December 9. -The
Supreme Court recently decided that
the new school law under which couaty
boards of school directors were chosen
is unconstitutional. State Superinten
dent Mebane being uncertain as to
how he Bhould proceed under this de
cision, asked the opinion of Attorney
General Walzer. To day the Attorney
General gave his opinion, holding that
the State Superintendent must recog
nize the Fusion county boards in all
cases, whether they have given up
their office or not. He says: "It now
becomes your duty, under the decisions
of the Supreme Court in the school
cases, to give effect only to Section 6,
Chapter 108. Acts of 1897, and to re.j
cognize the officers therein named
and those elected by them, but in
other respects to go forward with the
great school work under the act o:
1890. The old boards were very prop
erly advised by you to retire and in
the main did so. In the light of the
decisions herein referred to I have no
doubt that, the new boards will like
wise take your advice."
The Fusion boards had given up be
fore the Supreme Court rendered its
decision in all but about ten counties,
and had been f ucceeded bv ' boards
elected under the new law. Now those
new boards, if Walzer's opinion is law,
must get out and let the old Fusion
boards come back. Superintendent
Mebane has not decided yet as to what
he will do in the matter. These f re
quent changes he thinks, will i greatly
cripple the school system of the State.
To-day the Legislative journals of
1782, 1783 and 1784, which have been
missing so long, were found in the
Secretary of State's office, , marked
1872, 1873 and 1874. This mistake has
caused much trouble.
