THE NORFOLK NEWS : FRIDAY , OCTOBER 31,1902 , Man Injnrcd Last Sunday is Found. HIS NAME IS JOHN A. IflWIN Has Doon In Old Rene Darn Slnco Sunday Morning With no Cure and NothliiR to Ent Hns n Bruised Dnck and n Frncturod Skull. SVomThumUy'ii Dally t The mystery spoken of the ether day by TUB Nitws is solved , or nt least n portion of it. John A. Irwin lies on n bed in thu city jail in n serious physical condition with n badly bruised buck nnd n oon- tnsiou ut thu base of the hrnln below the loft oar , tlmt wnn probably caused liy n blow front n slung Rhot or some lioavy iiifltrnniont , nnd it in thought probable tlmt his skull is frnctnrod. lie ww found yestordny in the old Hone hotel barn , nt tlio pronont used by Mlllnrd Qroon , the drayman , having lain there aiuco Sunday morning without - out any thing to ont or any ouo to oaro for him. Circumstances are such tlmt it IH bollovod thitt the inotivo of his its- eailants was robbery. Irwin in n nmu about 40 years of ago and la wall known in Norfolk , having looa in the employ of Mlllard Green and Fred Kloutz its n dntymnn for n number of yoitrfl , nud boardqg nt 717 Norfolk uvonno for ooino tlmo. Ho lion not TOcontly lived in the city , but claims to have como down front Plnroo Saturday night. Ho was out with someone - one , during the night , but ( loon not know or refuses to tell who hiH com- pauionB/voro. Two or three of thorn , ho says , wont to the Armstrong house in NOUOW'H addition , where ho claims there were two or three women. Ho claims tlmt the assault took place after ho had loft the house on the streets and also claims that ho had $00 on his person \vhon ho oamo to the city , but only n few centH romaluod when ho wna dls- covered. Millard Qroon , the drayman , found him in the barn Monday , but thought it was Romoouo in there stooping oil' the ef fects of a drunk nnd paid no utoro at tention to him until ho found him there ngain yesterday nnd notified Policeman Koch who took him to thn city jnil , where ho has boon cnrod for and given medical attendance. Irwiu's face is covered with a stubby hoard that iscf several days' growth and goes to boar out the story that ho has been incapacitated for BOUIO days. Dr. Munson made an examination of his injuries nud found that ho had n terrible brulso across the b.tck , nnd where ho was struck nt the base of the l > raiu near the loft oar the doctor is of the opinion that his Bkull IH fractured. The loft ear is cut and bruised nnd some clots of coagulated blood are gathered about it. Ho has some fever this morn ing , but appears to bo recovering , slowly. Yesterday ho was unable to toll much of his experience but this morning the officers were successful in securing from him what of his story ho desired to tell or of which ho could toll. Go'iunlssiouor II. W. Winter is iu- vostigttting the case with n view to de termining whoso duty it will be to care for the injured man until ho recovers. If ho has boon making his homo in Pierce it is probnblo that the commiss ioners of that county will bocallodupou to provide for his care , if not the ox- POURO may fall on Madison county. The officers are also endeavoring to find ont who Irwiu's assailants might bo but find themselves handicapped by his refusal or inability to tell who his companions were on the night iu the question. It is as yet impossible to toll how ser ious his condition may bo but it is likely that ho will have quite n siege owing to the length of time ho was helpless iu the barn without caro. His appetite , owing to his prolonged fast , is good , nnd this is tnkou as a favorable indication of his ultimate recovery. Irwiu stntcs that ho found his way to the Reno barn by himself , hut iu view of his condition this is doubted. Whether ho does not know or refuses to toll who assisted him to that place is not known. This is the mysterious case of which rumors wore heard Monday nud Tues day , but the ofllcors were unable to lo cate the injured man nor were dodnito clues obtainable nnd it was finally be lieved to bo a hoax or that the injured man \vas being cared for by friends who refused to tell of his whereabouts. The fact that ho was said to be in the Daw- BOU barn , near South Norfolk , is evident that those who informed the police knew something of the case but got tan gled up on directions. It is believed by some that his as- eailante became alarmed at Irwin's con dition and endeavored to get informa tion to the officers without revealing their identity while they made good their escape , but the information was vague and indefinite that the injured I' ' t man wan not found until he was located by accident.

The lecture was under the auspices of the prohibitionists nnd not of the W. O. T. U. , which is non-partisan.

Suggetta Hundred Yenrs' Contract In stead of Outright Sale of Property. Proposed Plan Opens Up New Top ics for Argument. Washington , Oct. 28. The long ex- toctcd response of the Colombian ; ovornuient , made to the proposition of the state department for the nego- latlon of a canal treaty on the lines f the Spoonor act , has reached Wash- ngton and was passed to the state do- > arttnont by Secretary Horran of the Colombian location. It Is difficult to earn the exact nature of this commu nication , but it is known that It is not altogether an unqualified acceptance f the state department's propositions , t ia , however , friendly and dignified n tone and does not close the nogotla- Ions by any means , though it unquos- .lonably delays the date of the final groement , by opening up now topics or argument. For ono thing , the Co- omblan government la now entirely Issatisfled with the small amount of ho payment to bo made to it by the United States under the terms of the protocol , which It is proposed to use is the basis for the treaty. This sum s $7,000,000. Colombia wants at east $10.000,000. Moreover , the orlg- nal proposal looked to a wait for four- oen years before beginning the pay ment of annual rental , the amount of vhlch was to bo then fixed by mutual grcement. Colombia now asks the United States to agree at once on the roarly payment of a lump sum of 600,000. The Colombian government lings to its contention that It hns no onstltutlonal authority to alienate ny Colombian territory and reiterates hat the best It can do to meet the angungo of the Spoonor act , which ooks to perpetual control by the United States over the canal , is to make a 100-year lease , with a distinct tlpulatlon that the same shall be re newable by the United States at the xpiration of the first century.
