POX HILL BY RAIL.
That Section Seems Sure of
Broke Up a Church Social. KlkB' Charit y
l ini.l Fair. Two I'retty l'lctnres.
^iortluru XN.op1e Looking;
Tii is Way.
The piesent legislature has granted to
two caltway companies charters under
which they may buikil eldtric roads
from Phoebus to Fox ?Hill. One of them,
?called the Phoebus and Fox Hill Rail?
road, is to follow a direct route, north of
Mr. Darling's Buckroe branch, to tire
Grand View Hotel on the shore of Ch.s
apeake Bay. The purpose olf the Ineor
poiators, i'n addition to rendering the
charming seaside resort easy of ace>ss,
is to pit^ree to? heart of the populous
und prosperous Fox Hill section.
The other line, commonly designated
as the Seymour road, will follow the
! shore of IM ill Creek from Phoebus to
Buckroe Beac'h ami. thence, within a few
hundred yards of the bay. to the Grand
View Hotel. The splendid coll.ge build,
ing or the Xaverian Brothers, work
u'l on which is soon tobe commenced, and
the residences of most of the thsifty
Mill Creek farmers, will be on its route.
Ht isi reliably stoted that this road will
be in operation in time for the summer
.business at the Grand View. The hotel
has been leased' to Mr. Frank H. Wal?
ton, of Richmond, himself an experi?
enced railroad man, and' will be con?
ducted during the coming season in a
manner Which will attract hundreds of
visitors. Mr. Paul will go to Pittsburg
in" a few days, in'which .city he will
make his home.
The incorporators of the Phoebus and
Fox Hill road, in which Mr. E. M. Ten?
nis, fMr. J. J. Reuten, Mr. S. Gordon
Cumrr.ing and other Well known men a:e
interested, have already been- in corres?
pondence with one of. the largest con?
cerns at the'North- engaged in the busi?
ness o'f constructing railroads. From a
letter s en by the Daily Press corres?
pondent yesterday it appears that the
company is anxions to begin work at
as early a day as possible and that it is
not in the least worried by a lack of
funds with which to do so. The firm
above r*?\-Tiei- to is anxious to build
the read, and, shotted it secure the con?
tract, will have cars running wiiii'.r,_a
The distance to he covered ie about
five miles. Including the circuit through
the: most thickly settled portion of Fox
Hill, fa; 'Which the road, if built, will
furnish a longed for outlet to the local
markets ol Hampton* and Newport
News. Gooi' Judges here say that Mr.
Darling's road has done more for the
town and county than all the enterprise's
in them combined. If this statement is
true there is no telling what rapid und
comfortable trunsit will not do for the
Fox Hill country. There is no reason
to doubt that th^re will spaing up
somewhere in the vicinity of Walkins'
one of the most charming, prosperous
towns in the State!
BROKE UP THE SOCIAL.
How a Colored1 Octette Found Fun
There was a sound of r.velry by night
?revelry, however, that was both pro?
per- and orderly?at the house of R. D.
iBrown. on Upper Qu.en street, in this
city. The gathering was made up of
respectable colored foJk and the object
In view -was a r.lrgie-us one?the estab?
lishment ot' a higher social standard
among members of the church. Inci
olentaliy there was a shekel feature to
the affair, but wen this contemplated
the promotion of pious ends.
The social had been looked forward to
with interest for seme time and by 8
o'clock Thursday night Be-other Brown's
parlor was well filled1 and: wery thing
gave promise of a joyous occasion. Two
hours later, however, the scene was
suddenly -.hanged. It was then that
Charlie Buckner, LamdiT Walker, Wa?
lter Brown. lender 'Randolph, Robert
Diggs, Wiiliom. White, (Elijah Toliver
and a man whos-name isDennis?Jesse,
they call hinn for short?appeared as
unbidden guests at the feast. The host,
it is said, objected and the obtrusive oc?
tette were ordered to leave. Instead of
complying they promptly declined to re?
tire, and' Brown, as any man wculd have
done, proceeded to lose his temper. His
language was strong, but confined to
the limits of pious propriety. Not go
that of the unwelcome eight. They
poured forth a combination of discord?
ant and1 uglyi utterances that gave the |
women cold shivers and caused the men I
to see visions of razors afloat in. the
dark blue air. One woman, overcome by
fear, wont through a window without
taking time to open it. As good luck
woirl? ??Stave it she escaped- unhurt.
Others were too if.djyjfrightened to try
to get out of the house"."' Brb-WJl,. how?
ever, appears to have kept his head, aiV3.
ailing upon his masculine guests to fol-'
low charged upon the intruders and
drove them out. On the street Diggs
drew a knife, it is said, but made no
effc: t to use it.
Every man of the eight was caught.
Justice 'Richardson tried, them upon
warrants sworn out by Brown charging
tr-.sp?ss. A fine o< $1.50 was Imposed
all round and the gang discharged.
They were lucky.
FOR THEIR CHARITY FUND.
Elks' Fair Will Begin February 7 and
Last a Week.
Tbe coming fair of the Elks, for the
?benefit of the charity fund of the lodge
in this city, will be one of the most de?
lightful affairs of the kind \<ver attended
by the people of Hampton. In addition
to the usual attractions in the way of
handsome and well filled' booths pre?
sided over by pretty girls, there will be
a musical or dramatic entertainment, in
which well known people will partici?
pate, each night.
Arrangements are being made to se?
cure the Soldiers-' Home orchestra, and
it is expected that Captain Frank Cun
nigham, nlf Richmond, will be present.
Norfolk and Newport INews. will be
drawn upon for talent and no pains will
?be spared by the Elks to* make the
week a most delightful one for their
friends In Hampton- and1 surrounding
cities. Several exciting voting contests
will take place during the week. As th?
money raised will go, to the last penny,
into the charity fund of the lodge and
be used in helping the neody, the fair
should be liberally patronized. Many
prominent ladies are at work for the
Elks and the number will be considera?
bly increased' before the. close of the
LOOKING TiHSfS' WAY.
The Dally Press correspondent is re?
liably informed that a number of North
?jn capitalists are looking for a location
in this vicinity for the establshment of
an enterprise which, will necessitate the
expenditure of thousands of dollars.
'Alo-.e than this cannot be- said at pres?
ent, although names and other particu?
lars arc known to the writer. As soon
as it is proper to ?o so the Dally Press
will tell the whole story. Mention is
madv? o'f the matter mote to show that
no section is attracting more- attention
than that in which HarajStwn and ?K-w
port News have the good fortune to be
Captain Frank Darling ?met the con?
ductors and mortormtn of his road at
a meeting held at midnight Friday and
cautioned them against running cars
through the streets of the town at a
high rate of speed, of which, it appeals,
complaint has been1 made.
No road in this (xfuntry has a more
careful and oWiging set of men than
Mr. Darling's. It has been remarkably
free from serious accidents, everything
considered. The employees are not al?
ways to blame for the rapid running of
the cars. They are not only cxpeeUd
to be on time, but to make up lost time
and in doing this it frequently becomes
necessaryi to go too fast.
TWO 'PRETTY tPCRTRIAITS.

The CncosventtonRl Cleric.
Here is nn instance of unconventional
methods of conducting the services: Stain?
ed giuss windows were unknown in his
church, and from tho reading desk could
be seen the green fields stretching away to
tho rectory gates. And so one morning,
instead of beginning tho service as usual,
ho announced quite simply, "As I see my
sister, somewhat Into, approaching tho
church through the fields, with your kind
leuvc I shall postpone tho commencement
of divine service till bor arrival." In very
cold weatherbo would invite the congre?
gation to come and warm themselves nt
the stovo before leaving tho church. Un?
der other conditions of weather hiR
though tfulness for tbe comfort of his flock
took a somov.-hat different form, and nt
tho end of a half hour sermon ho would
say, "As tho weather ?s still so inclement,
I will, my dear friends, lengthen my dis?
course somewhat in the hope thut it may
In preaching ho had u strange, aversion
to mentioning the lianio of any secular
author from whom he was quoting. He
would say, "As somo one hns said, 'All
the world's n stage,' " eto. Once he and
his sister were tempted out to dino with
friends some miles distunt from the rec?
tory. Wholly unaccustomed to such lato
hours, tho sister slept peacefully in the
drawing room after dinner. "I fear,
madam," the rector said *n bis old fash?
ioned, courtly way, "that niy sister is some?
what somnolent." On leaving ho pressed

In military music the march oecuptGo-?
prominent position, and hns been cm
ployed not only to stimulate courage, but
also from about the middle of tho seven?
teenth century to Insure tho orderly ad?
vance of troops. Ono of the earliest in?
stances of rhythm icnl march is tho Welsh
war strain, "The March of tho Men of
flarloon," which is supposed to hnve orig?
inated during the slego of Hnrlccb castlo
in 1468. In England tbe military march
was of somewhat later development.
Sir John Hawkins, in bis "History of
Music, "tolls us that its characteristic was
dignity and gravity, in which respect it
differed greatly from tho French, which
was brisk and alert. And apropos of this i
subject, tho same author notes a witty re?
ply of an Eli/.id nt ban soldier to tho French
Marshal Biron's remark that-"tho Eng?
lish nun eh, being beaten by the drum, was
slow, heavy and sluggish." "Thut may
