ALL.UUIET AT HICKORY,
The Southern Places Its Siding Bui
v by a Compromise. "
The Sun yesterday told of a
clash between the Southern's peo
ple and the Chester '& Lenoir
Narrow Gauge road at Hickory.
The, trouble as stated was the re
sult of the Southern laying sev
eral side tracks to the mills near
the main line of the Western.
The side tracks crossed the line of
the Narrow Gauge road. This,
the narrow gauge people protested
against, but the Southern went
ahead with the work. As a re
sult a disturbance arose and many
of the employes of the Southern
were sent to Hickory Tuesday
night an d yesterday to protect its
interest. Matters . were quite
warm for awhile as was indicated
in a special to the Sun from Con
nelly's Springs yestrdaj'- after
noon. But the trouble took a
turn for the better.
Inquiry last night and this morn
ing elicits the fact that all is quiet
at Hickory. Parties who came
down the road last night say the
matter is ended.
The Southern, by a compro
mise, will finish the . disputed
tracks. By the compromise the
Southern will put in the crossings
at its own expense and w ill flag
the Narrow Gauge trains when
using the siding.
It appears that, the trouble was
not about the Narrow Gauge
building its own line from Hickory
to Newton, but about the cross
ings of the side tracks.
The Narrow Gauge people re
sisted the Southern, we under
stand, because hey feared the
sidings would hurt their business.

CAPT. SIGSBEE MAKES

PRESIDENT M'KINLEY AB
EXPLOSION HOT : DUE TO NEGLIGENCE,
Belief in Havana is that a Secret
Emissary of the Spanish Govern
ment Floated a Torpedo Tin-
der Water Line Against
the Maine's Magazine.
A juessage reeeived by the" Sun
this afternoon at 2:45 from Char
D;6patches to the
state that Capt. Sigsbee, of the
Maine, has made a startling report
to the Navy Department at Wash
ington regarding the destruetion
of his ship.
What the report is has not been
Divers ths, morning folmd an
eight-ineh pereussion hole in the
T)late of the! ship.
A later dispateh states'that -Capt.
Simpson, of; the Battleship Iowa,
has been appointed ehairman of a
ftJtiujtiitttf -rinvesticration i hat
will proceed! at once to HaVana to
make a thorough examination.
So far only 21 bodies have been
recovered. ! . ;
The report that divers found an
eigbt-ineh hole has created intense
excitement at Washington."
McKinley! refuses absolutely to
speak about the matter. V
Dispatches so far received, indi
cate that the explosion was not
due to negligence, but on the
other hand, Spanish treachery.
Admiral Monterola has, sum
moned Capt. Sigsbee, of; the Maine,
to appear before a military judge
to make depositions.
Capt. Sigsbee was notified that a
joint committee of American
Spanish naval officers would be ap
pointed to investigate the cause of
the explosion. '
Whan the Ivey Westbulletin
regarding the hole in the Maine's
plate was shown President Mc
Kinley, the only comment he
made was that it was the first he
had heard of it. He doesnt wish
to make any statement, but said
the administration had no advice
confirming the report.
It is believed in Havana that a
Spanish fanatic or secret emissary
of the government floated a ,t6r
pedo under j t he water line against
the Maine's! forward magazine, et
with detonating device, giving him
time to escape. It is stated that
this is"Capti Sigsbee's belief which

examined the clay, but we under
stand he is favorable to the Davis

point is probably the nearest to
