Section Relating to Armor Plate
and Armament Being Un
der Consideration.
Contested Election Case of Pearson Vs.
Crawford from the Ninth North Car
olina District A Vote to Be
Taken To-day.
tty Telegraph to the Horning star.
Washington, May 9. Practically
the entire session of the Senate was
de voted to a discussion of armor plate,
the section of the Naval Appropriation
bill relating to armor and armament
being under consideration. The de
baito largely hinged on the proposition
that the government should erect an
armor plant of its own. Senator Till
man presented an amendment limiting
tbe price to be paid for armor to 1300
per ton and providing also that tbe
government should erect a plant of its
own. Senators Tillman, Money and
Chandler advocated the erection of a
plant, while Mr. Hale supported the
committee amendment, providing for
a plant in the contingency that armor
could not be procured for $445 per ton.
No action was taken on the proposi
tion, the bill going over until to-morrow.
dum from Bear Admiral O'Neil, chief
of the naval bureau of ordnance, giv
ing the latest available information on
the subject of armor and particularly
on "soft nose projectiles. " The mem
orandum stated in part:
"No armor that exists to-day, regard
less of its thickness or quality, can re
sist the power of the modern gun at
short range. Therefore, the fact that
armor can readily be perforated at
short range must not be considered
an indication that it is of inferior
quality. It simply means that
it is over-matched by the gun. Nat
urally, that which is the most difficult
to perforate is the most desirable." v
All tests of armor, the memoran
dum states, 'are made with uncapped
projectiles and are exceedingly severe.
The memorandum adds:
"It is a well known fact that a soft
steel cap attached to the point of an
armor-piercing projectile increases its
efficiency to a marked extent, any
where from 15 to 20 and often to 25
per cant , and all such projectiles for
the United States navy are fitted with
caps. A few days ago at Indian Head
a six-inch capped shell was easily
driven through fourteen inches of
harveyized armor, and the same has
been done through eight inches of
Krupp armor."
. Senator Chandler, New Hampshire,
who ia ex-Secretary of the Navy, said
that if the United States was to build
only the ships now authorized it
might be well to accede to the de
mand of the armor companies, but if
we were to become a world power
and build ships for the next twenty
years it would be far cheaper to make
a-uor at the government's own plant.
At 5.15 P. M. the Senate adjourned.
. House of Representatives.
Washington, May 9. The-House
Mayor Waddell of Wilmington Opened
the Discussion and Was Enthusl
astlcally Applauded.
By Telegraph to the Horning Star. -Montgomery
ALA,, May 9. The
race problem conference begun at
10.80 o'clock to day.
Mayor Alfred M. Waddell, of Wil
mington, N. 0., opened the discussion
with an address, largely dealing with
the conditions in North Carolina. His
statements were given enthusiastic ap
proval. When he denounced the leg
islation which enfranchised the negro
as the meanest political crime in the
history of nations, the audience of a
thousand people cheered the sentiment
as they did when he demanded a re
peal of the Fifteenth amendment.
In the galleries there were perhaps a
including Booker T, Washington, of I
Huntsville. . ,
Colonel John Temple Graves, of
Atlanta, who followed Mayor Wad
dell, was given an ovation by the au
dienca. His plan for settling the ne
gro problem, the separation of the
races, met with favor, especially from
the large number of ladies present.
The hrst applause from the galleries
where the negroes were seated greeted
the introduction of ex Governor Wil
liam" A. MacCorkle of West Virginia,
who spoke earnestly And pleadingly
for the negro in politics as well as in
the arts and trades. "I was a rebel,"
he declared, especially in defending his
"Don't call us rebels," said Dr. J. L.
M. Curry, of Washington; good natur
edly, and the interruption gave Gov
ernor MacCorkle the- opportunity for
defending the Confederacy and the
South's cause in the civil war, in the
most dramatic manner. '
The speaker denounced the method
of restricting the ballot that has been
employed in Mississippi and Louisiana,
and which is proposed in North Car
olina. Mr. W. N. Fickler of Lowndesboro,
Ala., followed. He advocated the re
peal of the Fifteenth amendment and
declared that the white man of the
South will not submit to negro domi
nation even if it is necessary to employ
force and fraud.
This sentiment was loudly ap

to day entered upon the consideration
of the contested election case of Pear
son versus Crawford from the Ninth
North Carolina district. This is the
fifth of the nine contested election
cases to be considered by the House.
The report of the majority in the
Pearson. Cr&tvford case was against
the sittice member, a Democrat, on
the ground that Mr. Pearson's election
was prevented by fraud, intimidation,
bribery and bloodshed. The minority
deny all tho allegations of the ma
jority, pointing out that the district is
normally Democratic. The debate
to day was on party lines.
Without preliminary business, the
House entered upon the consideration
, of the case.
Mr. Roberts,' Massachusetts, who
was in charge of the case, on behalf of
the majority, made a proposition to
vote immediately after the reading of
the journal to-morrow. As an induce
ment for closing debate to day, Mr.
Roberts said he would move to strike
from the majority report that portion
in favor of throwing out the entire
ote of Asheville. He did this, he
said, because many gentlemen seemed
to believe that the vote of that whole
city would have to be eliminated to
seat Mr. Pearson. This was, he said,
not the case. With the vote of Ashe
ville in, the majority figured out a ma
jority of 155 for Pearson.
Mr. Miers, Indiana, for the minori
ty, rejected the proposition which , he
declared indicated that the majority
had already seen the handwriting on
the wall. The vote of Asheville was
not, he said, the only vulnerable point
in the case. He said four hours on a
side was the least he would accept.
This, in turn, was rejected and Mr.
Roberts entered upon his opening ar
. gument in support of the majority re-1
port without any agreement having
been reached as to the time for closing
- the debate.
Mr. Crawford, the sitting member,
a Democrat, had 238 plurality on the
face of the returns. Mr.; Roberts
sought to prove that the race ques
tion was the issue in the campaign in
the Ninth district, and that by fraud,
bribery, bloodshed and intimidation
Mr: Pearson had been aeieatea. ne
figured out a true plurality for Mr.
"Pearson of 318. In the course of his
remarks Mr. Roberts denounced the
constitutional amendment and the
new election law in North Carolina,
which, he said, were designed to elim
inate the negro vote.
Mr. Roberts said he had offered to
allow the vote of Asheville to stand
because it was not necessary to throw it
out for the establishment of his case
and its discussion would only delay
- the Case. '
Mr. Miers, of Indiana, presented the
case of the minority in a lengthy ar
gument, in which he charged that
the majority had submitted conclu
sions without a syllable of evidence
or warrant of law. He called atten
tion to the fact that the district-was
. normally Democratic and that the
election of 1898 was conducted under
an election law passed by the Fii
sionists. which gave the contestant s
political friends control of the election
machinery. All the charges of in
timidation, bribery and violence were

Cincinnati, O., May 9. National
Chairman D. Clem. Deaver called the
convention of the middle-of-the-road
Populists to order at 1.50 P. M. He
introduced Mayor Tafel, who wel
corned the delegates to Cincinnati in
a brief speech, in which he gave e
pression to what the delegates were
pleased to interpret and applaud as
Populist sentiments.
When Chairman Deaver rapped for
order there were on the floor of the
Opera House 470 men and women oc
cupying delegates seats and seventy
five people in the galleries.
National Secretary Jno. A. Parker
was introduced to read the call for the
convention. . Parker was received
with applause. He said, "We have
had a terrific struggle to hold together
the honest men of the party, but 1 be
lieve we have succeeded and the
People's party is saved." He ex
coriated Senator Allen and that gentle
man's alleged remark at Lincoln:
"We have thrown them over the
transom." Parker declared that the
People's party went over the transom
at the same time and that 'Butler and
Allen at Sioux Falls cannot sell and
barter the vote of the People's party."
- Chairman Deaver announced that
the national committee had recom
mended the selection of former con
gressman M. W. Howard, of Ala
bama, for temporary chairman. The
convention unanimously ratified that
There were loud calls for Ignatius
Donnelly of Minnesota. When he
reached the footlights he was seized
and lifted to the stage, where he was
crreeted with continued cheers.
Mr. Donnelly felicitated the national
committee on its success in bringing
together such a body of delegates. He
declared the Omaha convention of
1892 nominated a man and gave him
prominence which only enabled him
to sell out his friends, and he ex
claimed: "The traitors are now as
sembled at Sioux Falls in obsequeous
servility to the Democratic party,
They are parting their coat-tails and
inviting the bugs to kick them and
every time they are kicked they thank
God : and take courage." He de
nounced Bryan and lauded Thomas C.

Sharp Skirmishes Are of Daily Occur

bnrg The Boers Taking Up a
Position -Near Kroonstad.
By Cable to the Horning Star.
London, May 10, 4:10 A. M. Gen
eral Huttoh's mounted infantry brig
ade, including the Canadians, with a
part of General French's cavalry.
crossed the Zand river Tuesday and
began to work its way cautiously
along the railway northward ia
the track of the retiring Boers.
About 8,000 horsemen were probably
engaged in this advance. General
liutton, before he was joined by a
part of General French's force, had a
sharp fight. This was on Monday,
when ho reached the river and saw
the Boer convoys on the other side
and pressed forward intending to cross
and capture them. The Boers, how
ever, opened' fire with from eight to
ten guns, forded the river above and
below, seemingly in thousands, and
sought to envelop the- brigade. Hut
ton fell back several miles, the ttoers
following until other British cavalry
reinforced Hutton. During the night
the Boers retreated, not further con
testing the crossing.
The Boer attack on Gen. Hutton does
not indicate any such panicky condi
tions as have been alleged to exist
among them. Nevertheless, the British
advance rolls on steadily. Gen. Broad-
wood and Gen. Bruce Hamilton have
penetrated fifteen miles beyond Win
burg. - According to Boer advices
sharp skirmishes are of daily occur
rence, and there was a brisk rifle en
gagement outside Winburg on Satur
day. .
From isoer sources come also the re
port that in a skirmish outside Mafek
ing, May 5tb, Colonel Baden-Powell
was slightly worsted.
The Transvaal Volksraad adopted
resolutions on Tuesday expressing in-
digaatio i at the British for not con -ducting
the war in a civilized manner,
for killing wounded Boers with lances,
for using armed Kaffirs, under British
officers, and for ill-treating prisoners.
n j a. it i i
irresiaent ivruger, alter ms iormai
speech on Monday, said the British
were prepared for war in 1896, as docu
ments which the burghers had cap
tured showed, but that the Transvaal
to avoid bloodshed offered a seven
years' franchise, and then a five years'
franchise. "Great Britain still de
manded war," he declared, "and the
republic at length accepted the chal
lenge. Even should the British enter
the Transvaal and take Pretoria, the
Boers will still remain a free people."
Adelbert Hay was present when
this speech was delivered. TheRaad
continues in secret session.
A dispatch credited to a semi-official
source in Pretoria says: "The Euro
pean powers have delivered a collec
tive note to President Kruger, inform
ing him that they will hold him per
sonally responsible for the safety of
me mines, ana, win suppuri. xjpgianu
in eniorcing compensation in me
event of their destruction." -
Lord Roberts' Stern Policy.
Cape Town, May 9. It is believed
here on the arrival of the British at
the Vaal river, a proclamation was
issued annexing the Orange Free State
to the dominion of the Uueen and
demonstrating the determination of her
majesty's forces to assert British
supremacy over the annexed territory.
The Boer losses at uranatort are
now reported to nave been mucn
heavier than was at first understood.
After the battle British patrols visited
the farm houses in the surrounding
district and all the man were taken
prisoners, while the horses and guns
were removed.
Lord Roberts is thus adopting. a
sterner policy, with a view of prevent
ing guerilla lighting in the rear or the
British. Horses are now commandeered
and farm houses where guns are found
are, destroyed, while the men are ar
rested. British Attack Kepnlsed.
Smaldeel, May 8. Yesterday Gen.
Hutton attempted to seize a Boer con
voy that was leaving the Zand river.
He advanced toward the river with
mounted infantry, including the Cana
dians. A long line of wagon was
plainly visible.
The Boers stopped their retreat and
opened - fire with ten guns. They
seemed in great force and threatened
Hutton's flank. Presently mounted
Boers were seen crossing the dry bed
of the river. They circled to the right
and began to enfilade the West Aus
tralians, while many of the British
were hit by Boer shells.
The position became serious. The
Boers sent up reinforcements, placing
the Australians in danger of being cut
off. Thereupon General Hutton
ordered a retirement to Welgelegen,
where he had left his own convoy. A
portion of the forces advanced and en
gaged the Boers to cover tnis retire
ment, which was successfully accomplished.
The Boers continue a 10 sneu ine re
tiring troops, but showed no desire to
press the attack- xurtner.
Meanwhile the Boer trains streamed
away northward, blowing up the cul
verts as they went.
The Boers' Movements.
London, May 9. Although the
British expected considerable opposi
tion at the dimcuit aim oi me ziana
river, the latest advices from Smaldeel,
Orange Free State, indicate that the
Federals are not yet ready to mane a
determined attempt to stop Lord Rob
erts' advance. The latter's front is so
wide and overwhelming in numbers
that it is difficult to see how the Boers
can help being ousted out of Virginia
Siding as they were out oimaiaeei,
even if they elected to give battle. The
same considerations would probably
affect the situation at itroonstaa,

Brave ITIen Fall
Victims of the stomach, liver and
kidney troubles as well as women, and
all feel the result in loss of appetite,
poisons in the blood, backache and
tired, listless, run-down feeling. , But
there's no need to feel like that. Lis
ten to J. W. Gardner, Idaville, Ind.
He says: "Electric Bitters are just the
thing for a man when he is all run
down, and doa't care whether he lives
Or dies. It did more to give me new
strength and good appetite than any
thing I could take. I can now eat
anything and have a new lease on
life." Only 50 cents at R. R. Bel
