Associated Press Dispatches. VOL. IV. 170 ALGER HAS RESIGNED. No Room For Him in McKinley's Official Family. MICHIGAN TRIP SETTLED IT President Declines to Discuss the Subject for Publication. Resignation to Take Effect "at the Pleasure" of the Chief Executive. (By Telegraph.) WASHINGTON, July 19.--Secretary Alger today tendered to the President his resignation of the War portfolio. The resignation will become effective August 1st, though it was tendered "at the pleasure of the President." Gossip has begun already as to his successor, but it is entirely speculative. Notwithstanding the reports that Mr. Alger would not long continue at the head of the War Department, his actual resignation came suddenly and unexpectedly. So little was it expected at this time that some of the cabinet officers, when the news first became public, were inclined to regard the announcement as premature. Formal acceptance of the resignation had not been made by the President up to a late hour tonight, but ...

The Ordinance. Ben Bates, formerly bugler at the Fort, was put on trial in the Corporation Court yesterday for his life, charged with the murder of Charles Wilkerson. On the 8th of April, 1899, Bates, accompanied by a crowd of friends, met Wilkerson, accompanied by a crowd of friends, on the C. & O. yard in front of the yardmaster's office. The two had had a difficulty several days before, and there was bad blood between them. A quarrel ensued when the crowd met. Wilkerson and Bates had a fight, which resulted in Wilkerson's receiving a mortal wound in the abdomen. Bates was arrested that night by Sergeant Reynolds. Wilkerson died in a hospital in Richmond on the 16th of April. The defense is self defense, the prisoner claiming that he was under Wilkerson when the shot th...

A THRILLING CHASE In Which the Quarry Was a Human Being. AN UNPRECEDENTED SCENE Wild Man-Huun Across Casino Grounds for a Negro Thief and Would be Murderer. Narrow Escape from Lynch'ng. Charlie Williamson, a Petersburg negro, now ofNewport News, and at present a candidate for the penitentiary, came within a hair's breadth of being strung up to a telegraph pole by an infuriated populace last night. That he is alive this morning is probably due to the fact that no rope was handy when the crowd was in a humor to swing him, and that it was learned in time to prevent extreme violence that he had not murdered anybody, as was at first believed. Charlie Williamson has been employed recently as a helper about the home of Mrs. S. B. Chandler on Twenty-fifth street. At this house resides a Mrs. W. H. Minor, who has a room on the second floor. Shortly after 7 o'clock Williamson went into the Warwick Pharmacy and throwing down a twenty dollar gold piece asked for change, quick. W. G. Burgess, th...

The announcement that General Wheeler will not resign his position in Congress and his statement that he expects to return in time to be present at the opening of the National legislaaure in December, has caused widespread interest, and is responsible for the report that the little General has been sent to the Philippines on a special mission by the President. If he can get back in time to represent his people in the House of Representatives in December there is no special reason why he should resign unless a majority of his constituents desire him to take such action. On the other hand, if he has enlisted "for the war" he should not ...

HAMPTON NEWS AND ADVERTISEMENTS. HE WANTED A KISS -- But Charles Mackeray Got in Jail Instead. SERIOUS CRIME CHARGED Proceedings of the Burge Case. Will Probably Go to the Jury Today. Argument to be Commenced This Morning. Because he asked the girl to whom he was engaged to be married to give him a kiss Charles Mackeray had to spend one night in the county jail with the serious charge of attempted criminal assault booked against him. This fact was brought out in the preliminary bearing yesterday. As was told in the Daily Press yesterday, Mackeray was arrested and lodged in the county jail Tuesday night upon a warrant charging him with attempting to commit a criminal assault on Hattie Schriver, a young girl who resides with her mother near Salter's Creek, between this place and Newport News. The warrant was sworn out by Mr. E. Ehoff, who is the step-father of the girl, and at whose home Mackeray lived. The parties are Germans and have lived under the same roof for some time. PRELIMIN...

NEW YORK STOCK MARKET. NEW YORK, July 19--The intense dullness of the stock market continued to be the main feature of the trading today as for some time past. Not only Not was it true of the New York market but of the continental and London markets as well and speculation at different exchanges in the United States was reported in the same number and neglected condition. The whole speculative world maintained its waiting attitude. Many factors which have been adduced to account for the hesitation have been successfully eliminated and the hesitation still persists. Money continued to work rather lower, but is still above the rates at other domestic centers. Fears of the gold movement seem to exercise a reflex influence between London and New York. New York is in fear that the money stringency in London and on the continent will draw gold from here as our rates work lower. London is in fear that the coming export movement of merchandise from the United States will emphasize the strin...

NOTES OF SHIPPING. ITEMS OF INTEREST TO MARINERS GATHERED FROM ALL SOURCES. To Err Is Human. Stranding of the Paris. Remarkable Steam Plant. The Plunger. "To err is human." 'No man after reading Capt. Frederic Watkins' report of how the steamslhip Paris stranded on the Manacle Rocks off the Cornish Coast can say that it is not manly, although ruinous to himself as a shipmaster. The following paragraph explains the error and practically disposes of the case without further investigation: "I regret to say that the causualty was owing to an unaccountable error on my part. It is about one hundred and thirty-one miles from Cape de la Hague to the Lizard, and the run between these points would, I calculated, occupy six hours and fifty-four minutes. Unfortunately, I reckoned the time on this basis for coming up with the Lizard from twenty-five minutes to 8 P. M., when abeam of the Casquets, instead of from tventy-two minutes to 7 P.

THE HUGGING BUG. An Infernally Bideous Specimen of a Remarkble Insect. The latest freak in the insect line is the "Hugging Bug," which is first cousin to the "Kissing Bug," and a good deal worse. The creature is called the "Hugging Bug" on account of his enormous size and his immense arms He is the most vicious looking thing in the bug line even seen in this section. A specimen was caught Tuesday by a gentleman who carried him to a drug store and had him incarcerated in a bottle of alcohol, where he died swinging his great arms about in the most terrifying manner. An unscientific description of this latest insect horror is almost impossione of the things, he would swear off one of th ethings, he would swear off and join the salvation army. The specimen referred to is about two inches long and three quarters of an inch broad. He is probably half an inch thick. The head is ornamented with a pair of devilish-looking horns, which stick up above the eyes, giving the expression a peculiar...
