NEW YORK STOCK MARKET.
NEW YORK, May 9.?Probably to
j day s stock market owed its firmness
I ami at some points its strength to the
I extraordinary course of prices in the
wheat market. With May wheat sell
.n^ in this market at 1.90 a bushel be
l fore the middle of the month, and with
July option almost keeping pace with
it?there is assured promise of abundant
increase of wealth for this country.
The outbreaks of Venice and of blood?
shed in Italy and Spain on account of
the deafness of bread and the advanc?
ing price for that necessity at other
points In Europe are only too con?
vincing evidence that the high price
for wheat is not due to speculative
manipulation, but to the urgent need
of foreign consumers. With this dem?
onstration it is not surprising that se?
curities should continue to advance.
The day's business was the heaviest
since last fall, the total sales of all
stocks reaching 260.300 shares. A fea?
ture of the day was the shall) advance
of hall' a cent in sterling exchange.
Not only the easier tendency of the
money here, but the large demand for
. schlinge created by the selling of
slocks for foreign account had to do
with this advance. ThOe sales for for?
eign account reached over 30.000. The
bond market shared the activity, and
was strong: throughout.
The total sales of stocks today were

THE NEW BEACH LINE
A Talk With Mr. Payne Con?
VIRGINIA THOMAS' STORY.
Arrival or ttau Now Orlen in at Old ?Point.
Work on the Uas 1'lant to be Colll
mrm-ed Soon. A Now Sehool
Ullilulug. Other Items.
Mr. W. J. Payne, of the Newport
Newa and Old Point Electric Railway
Company, talked entertainingly to a
Daily Press reporter, during a visit to
this city yesterday afternoon, concern?
ing the important enterprise in which
so many of. the people of this county
are deeply interested. Many inquiries
had been heard recently as to the im?
mediate plans of the company, but no
one has been authorized until today to
essay an answer to any of them. It is
with Mr. Payne's consent and upon
information furnished by him that the
Daily Pre*s does so this morning.
As nothing more serious than a war
scare was disturbing the country at
the time the application of the com?
pany for the right through the city
was presented to the council, no one, j
not even those who opposed the com?
ing of the new line, doubted that work
would be commenced at an early day.
Hut when the news came that war had
been declared many of the friends of
the enterprise became impressed with
the idea that Mr. Payne and his asso?
ciates would hesitate to put their
money into railroad iron and rolling
stock. Such, however, is not the case.
There is no fear whatever upon the
part of the gentlemen composing the
company that the war will in any way
interfere with their plans. It is hardly
necessary to say that the money nec?
essary to build and equip the road is
ready at a moment's notice. No one
not the possessor of a phenomenal
fund of temerity would question this
Mr. Payne called attention to the
fact that It has been but little more
than a week since the council of New?
port News granted the franchise
through the streets of that city. Since
then he and other gentlemen have been
bard at work arranging for the begin?
ning of operations at an early day.
Considerable difficulty has been en?
countered in placing orders with iron
and steel establishments, owing to the
fact that the leading concerns through?
out the country have been overrun
! with government orders, thus compell
| Ing those tiled by the promoters of pri?
vate enterprises to wait. Indeed, but
for this, work on the line would now
be under way. But despite those hin?
drances. Mr. Tayne assured the Daily
Press reporter that contracts in?
volving the expenditure of considera?
ble sums of money have already been
awarded and that others, still more
important, will follow in "a short time.
In short, he positively declared, and
authorized the writer to repeat the
statement to the public, that not a mo?
ment will be wasted in preparing for
the work of construction, and that
when commenced It will be pushed
with all speed to completion.
Mr. Payne came here yesterday ev?
ening to meet the chief engineer of the
road and to transact other business
connected with it.
VIRGINIA THOMAS' STORY.
Says She Was Warned that Her House
Would Be Raided.
, A crisp and creamy police sensation
will, it is reliably averred, be launched
in Mayor Hope's court this morn?
ing. The events which led up to it are
alleged to have occurred Saturday
night and were the outcome of an effort
on the part of Rev. T. E. Shorts, pasr
tor of the Queen Street Baptist church,
and others, to close a disreputable
house in the Immediate vicinity of that
place of worship for colored people.
Not long ago Pastor Shorts was told
that a woman named Virginia Thomas,
who resides near the Queen Street
church, was conducting an immoral
establishment. He lost no time In
gathering information and soon be?
came convinced that the charge was
true. Then he told the police about
it and asked them to put a stop to it.
Saturday night Officers Watts, Cur?
tis and Knewstep arranged to surprise
the place and capture the inmates.
They kept their plans carefully con?
cealed under their helmets and shortly
after midnight pounced down upon the
unsuspecting negress and her company
like a legion of wild-eyed Castilians es?
caping from ft regiment of backwoods
Virginia and her friends, finding
themselves thus suddenly in durance
vile, became loquacious. The swift
transition was an event for which they
were evidently unprepared, and the
thought of it kindled their anger and
aroused In their breasts that belliger?
ent spirit which always finds comfort
in the formation of a resolution to get
even. Accordingly. Virginia, who. at
the side of ?n officer, led the proces?
sion into the blustery night, began
1 to talk. Others in the company Joined
the conversation and by the time the
official trio reached the little pine
shanty used by *he county as a prison,
they had heard that a member of the
county force had warned the woman
that her house was to be raided.
So runs the story. Whether It is
true or not will be~ determined this
morning. It is, at any rate, the
uppermosttheme in police circles.
But when Mayor Hope calls upon
the alluring Virginia to speak the
"whole truth and nothing but the
truth," there is a possibility that she
may get her statements mixed. It is
not in the least likely that the utter?
ances of a disreputable woman will be
permitted to outweigh the testimony of
a police officer of good reputation for
truth and veracity.
ONLY FOUR FAILED.
Good Showing Alade by the Peninsula
Captain Hope's brave and well drill?
ed soldier boys, the Peninsula Guards,
made an excellent showing in their
physical examination. which took
place yesterday afternoon. Fifty-four
men were mustered before the medical
officer and of that number but four
were required to step aside. The boys
were out at noon in their uniforms
and were as highly praised and as
much admired by the. men oM.he town
as the women. They expect" to' leave
this week, probably Wednesday, it is
said, for Richmond, whence it is likely
they will go South. They are in for
the war. at home or In Cuba, and no
I one doubts that they will- give an ex
I cellent account of. themselves.
A NEW SCHOOL BUILDING.
It Will Probably He Located in the
Satisfactory arrangements Slave
been made with Messrs. t '. 11. White
it Co., of New York, for the sale of
county bonds to the amount of $15,000
lor the purpose of erecting a modern
high school building in or near this
city. The bonds have been soul Ui the
New York banker at 1.05.
The present structure.' which stands
on the classic soil of Pee Dee, was out
of date years ago, but by dint of ex?
pert crowding and cramming und
turning away pupils for whom no
room could be found, the school au?
thorities have managed to get along
without an insurrection. All this has
been hard on Professor Cowles am! his
assistants, to say nothing about the
multitude of boys and girls under
them, but they have borne their trials
with unilinchiug heroism. Now that
standing room in the building is at a
premium and a new house for the
propagation of the youthful idea is in
sight, they are feeling better.
The indic ations are that the next
high school will be located in the West
End. While this has not been definite?
ly decided upon. County Superinten?
dent Willis said yesterday afternoon
that it is more than likely to go ?to
that section. The building will not
only be a very attractive structure
from the architectural point of view,
but will bo convenient, commodious
and cheerful, requisites of the highest
importance for a house In which a
large number of children are required
to pass a considerable portion of their
time. There will be no lack of provis?
ions for preserving and promoting the
health of the pupils, with an abund?
ance of ground for outside amuse?
ments. It is the purpose of the school
authorities' to have the new building
ready for occupancy in time for the
opening of the session next fall.
IN HONOR OF THE LADIES.
Last Night's Delightful Entertainment
at Elks' Hall.
Elks' Hall was filled to overflowing
last night with the elite of the town
and a more delightful evening has
never been passedjri Hampton". Short?
ly after the close of the fair held lor
the benefit of the charity fund of the
order hist winter, the Elks determined
to show their appreciation of the
friendly aid rendered them by the la?
dies of the city, and the result was the
magnifioent entertainment last even?
I For three hours the splendid lodge
j room. In the center of which stood a
j long and richly laden table bearing
numerous charming and fragrant flo?
ral decorations, was the scene of be?
wildering gayety, in which a large par?
ity of ladies and gentlemen snapped
their lingers at dull care and had a
good lime. .
Mr. Francis F. Cajj?ey delivered an
address of welcoa^Twhieh called forth

was at an._end. That which followed
had to be tasted to be appreciated.

THREE MONTHS FDR PALMER.
Strong Plea for Him By Mr. F. S.
Attorney F. S. Collier, of this city,
and District Attorney White, of, Nor?
folk, fought a legal battle without
gloves before Judge Waddill in the
United States court, at Norfolk, last
Saturday. Mr. Collier was the attor?
ney for Capt. John Palmer, convicted
of changing the figures in a marriage
certificate in order to obtain a widow's
pension for a colored woman of this
Mr. Collier endeavored to secure a
new trial for the veteran, but failed.
He then made a sledge hammer argu?
ment for a now sentence. Mr. While,
It Is said, vigorously and somewhat
bitterly insisted that the old soldier
should be severely dealt with, claiming
that his guilt had been clearly estab?
lished. This people who "heard the ev?
idence deny, and doubtless Judge
Waddill was inclined to the same view,
for he sentenced Palmer to but three
months in the Norfolk county jail.
Wright, the man charged with forg?
ing Clerk Smith's name to a check,
last week, will bo tried in the county
court today. The trial of Earnest
King, indicted for stealing clothing
and other articles from James River
fishermen, will also be arranged for
