The railway postofllco department
has just placed an additional clerk entrains
trains No. 1 and 2 , running between

delivered to towns along the route ,

for the force of clerks and much mall
matter was brought back every day ,
unworked the afternoon before. Several
oral towns missed issues of The News
owing to this extra work on the trains

clerks , but the fault of the new condi
tlon which had not yet been met l

MAJOR PENROSE UNDER FIRE.
Army Officer Known In Norfolk Called
on for Explanation.
Major Ponroso , formerly nt Fort Nl-
obrara , and known In Norfolk , who
was In command of the battalion of
colored troops at Brownsville , Is now
.Hitler fire from the white house. Ho
s alleged to have said , when the
.roops wore mustered out , "Thoro goes
.he last of the best drilled , best be-
laved battalion in the United States
army. " The department has demand
ed an explanation. If ho admits say-
ng It , it Is said ho will probably ho
courtmartlalled for criticising n su-
Gilchrlst Stewart , colored , there to
nvestlgatc facts , nuked him If that
statement was for publication nnd ho
said , according to Stewart , "It certain-
y is. "
General Nottleton , formerly assist
ant secretary of the treasury , has just
nvestigatcd the case at Brownsville
and makes this report :
The well attested evidence is that
: ho colored troops were treated herewith
with the same consideration that colored -
ored soldiers of like bearing are treated -
od In most garrison towns of the
northern states. That on the other
[ land the street conduct of some of
them was often aggressively and
causelessly insolent toward white men
and women , and that there was no
provocation for the murderous raid by
the soldiers , unless It can be called a
provocation that the drinkers among
them were provided with separate bars
In certain saloons and on two occa
sions Individual insolence was resent
ed by individual citizens , but one of
whom happened to haVe boon a repub
lican federal olllclal. There wab no
"riot" and no street "rows , " as many
newspapers persist In calling the oc
currence. It was simply a most cow
ardly conspiracy to terrify , wound nnd
kill unoffending men , women and chil
dren nt the hour of midnight , when
defense was Impossible and was not
even attempted. Evidently not an op
posing shot was fired.

WILL MRS. EDDY LIVE FOREVER ?
George N. Beels Discusses View as
Expressed In New York.
Asked for his opinion upon the view
of a Christian Scientist to the effect
that Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy will live
forever , George N. Beels of this city ,
leader of the faith In Norfolk , said :
"Mrs. Eddy , the discoverer and
founder of Christian Science , has ful
ly stated the system In her book which
amply explains such a text as this
from John 11:20 : , "Whosoever llveth
and belloveth in mo shall never die , "
and shows that It "not only contra
dicts human systems but points to the
self sustaining and eternal truth. "
"All Christian Scientists arc seeking
to demonstrate the teaching of Christ
Jesus , and follow In the way ho point
ed out. "
