cases coming to our knowledge,
and have' otherwise disposed of all
business brought, before us and so
far as we are able to judge have
performed all. the duties required
of us as grand jurors.
We visited the county home
by co'mmittee from our body, and
said committee report that they
found everything in good con
dition. The whole premises have
a clean appearaifce, both in and

Anderson Nevitt, colored, yas
brought down from Ashevillo last
night" by . Agent MMahon and
placed in jail on the-charge , of
stealings whiskey from a car of a
train at Cleveland, this county,
last Saturday. There was a white
man also charged with Nevitt.in
this case, but he skipped and was
not brought here by the officer.;
Xevitt is the man who interfered
and perhaps saved- the life of the
negro, Rutherford, on Tuesday,
when he was being beaten . by Will
Garrett, who was sentenced , yes-
terday to tenearfe for assaulting
and robbing Rutherford. While
the-assault and robbery was being
made near the railroad this side of
Cleveland a1 freight train came
along and was stopped in order to
allow members of the crew to take
Garrett off of his victim. Nevitt,
who was a member of the crew
went to Rutherford's relief and the
robber was forced to leave.
The crime for which Nevitt is in
jail is the stealing of whiskey from
a ;f reight car last Saturday.

NOTHING MUCH NEW

Navy Department Knows Nothing
lIoTe About the Cause of Haine
Disaster than ' it Did After
: First Dispatch Received.
There is nothing milch new in
the situation relative to the Maine
disaster. Yesterday was a fruit
ing at the
less day so far as get
bottom ' of facts were
All was still in a state of suspense.
The divers were at work and the in
vestigation will probably be com
pleted in a few; days. ' The latest
dispatches yesterday say that ru
mors of startling discoveries were
less frequent, but there Were
enough of them still afloat to war
rant Secretary Long in making
this statement to the newspaper
men: "Summing up; the situa
tion, I should say that the Navy
Department knows to-day nothing
more about the cause of the disas
ter than it did five minutes after
the receipt of the first dispatch
from Cap t. Sigsbee."
The. court of inquiry held its
usual sessions in Havana yester
day, Capt. Sampson reports that
Chaplain Chidwick was examined
as to his personal experiences at
the time of the disaster to the
Maine, and that the testimony was
taken of the captain of a British
bark in the harbor and the super
intendent of the West Indian Oil
Company, across the bay at Re
gala, both of whom witnessed the
explosion. At the afternoon ses
sion the divers .were examined
more fully than before. Their
testimony is taken from day to
dayT The court expects now to
finish here to-day and to sail on
the Mangrove . for Key West,
where the other '-.officers and men
will be examined.

Belleville, who was in command

of Mr. McKinley, said that while
at tne capitol he discussed the
Maine disaster and its possible re

"The President stated to me,"
said the general, v "that he was on
