A Few Opinions of the Christmas
issue of the Daily Press.
IT WAS A GREAT PAPER
This Is the General Sentiment. Kvidt'ucc
of Energy awl Enterprise. The Fco~
pie Ought to be Frond of it.
A Credit to the City.
The. Christmas .edition of the Daily
Presss, and also the first issue run off on
the new Cox Duplex Columbian press
just put. in 'by the management, was
generally complimented all over the city
.'Sunday and yesterday. The citizens
seemed to appreciate the efforts of the
publishers to'give Newport News a pa?
per which should be in all respects com?
mensurate with the progress and enter?
prise of the city, and the wide-awake
iitss of her citizens.
Columns might be filled with the ex
pj-cssipns of approval heard on all sides, j
all of them voluntary. Many friends
of the paper came into the office to offer
Here are a few opinions gathered at
Captain J. E. Williams, deputy col?
lector: "It was a very good paper."
J. B. Shaw, of the Citizens Telephone
and Telegraph Company: "It was a
good paper, and you deserve credit.
The paper ought to get patronage. It
evidences taste and enterprise on the
part .'of the management."
Mr. J. G. Livezey: "You are to he
Mr. "W\ G. Burgess: "The paper is
evidence of the energy and enterprise
of the Daily Press management. It
should be encouraged by all of our peo?
ple. I am already getting visible re?
sults from my advertisement in that
City Treasurer J. M. Curtis: "I liked
the paper very much. I read it with a
great deal of interest, and so did all of
Mr. D. G. Smith, clerk of the courts:
"It was a great paper, and 'the whole
town ought to be proud of it. It is
not only the best paper ever published
on the Peninsula, but compares favor
atly with any in the State. I heard
more than a hundred people compliment
the paper in Hampton. They are all
of the same opinion as I am. I think
the management of the paper deserves
a heap of credit, and I know they will
get it. If the people here don't ap?
preciate such enterprise, well-. I
haven't anything to say about them."
Mr. Sol. Peyser, of the Capital Dry
Goods House: "You are to be congratu?
lated. It was a good papeifc"
Mr. Elias Peyser, of Peyser's: "It was
a good paper, and a credit to the city."
Mr. H. J. Lewis, of Griffiths & Lewis:

Mr. Li. S. Cottrell, of the Cottreil Real
Estate Co.: "It was hot stuff."
Mr. J. L. Marye, Jr., of Marye & !
Boyenlon: "A good paper. The Daily
Press is an institution which deserves
the support of the people. We have
hotten good results from our advertise?
ments in the paper and are thinking
cf increasing our space."
Mr. J. A. Hirshberg, the Clothier: "It
was--a. pretty paper, and a good one. I
? .think the Daily Press is to be congratu?
Mr. ,C. W. Mugler, of Mugler's Shoe
& Hat Co.: "It was all right, and shows
enterprise for a city of this size. It
should meet with encouragement from
Postmaster Fred Read: "It was all
right. I have put my copy away for
Mr. Edward Byers. proprietor of the
Alleghany Inn: "It was the 'brightest
issue of a paper 1 ever saw in a city
of this size."
Mayor A. A. Moss: "It was a great
paper. I was just coming in to get some
extra copies. Newport News is a going
cTty, but in her progress, she has not
gotten ahead of the Daily Press."
The Daily Commercial yesterday said,
editor?y: "The Commercial congratu?
lates the esteemed Daily Press upon the
handsome and instructice special edi?
tion issued Sunday morning."
THE UNLUCKY CAFE CHAltlKS.
Y. F. & N.'s New Steamer Now Lies on
. the Bottom of the Elizabeth.
While the officials of the New York,
Philadelphia & ISforfolk Railroad Com?
pany were congratulating Themselves
that they had saved so much from the
fire which had so badly damagejd their
beautiful new steamer Cape Charles,
that vessel was on" fire again, and 'by
Sunday morning what was left of her
was lying on the 'bottom of Elizabeth
river1, probably wrecked and ruined
past recovery. .
It is probable that the first fire was
never thoroughly extinguished. At any
rate, the vessel caught fire again Sat?
urday night in the dense fog, and sank
on a ledge of mud.
Her keel lies at such an angle that
it will be.' difficult to save her, it is
thought. The second fire caught in the
pilot house, and burned out most of the
interior of the boat. It is now feared
that her hoilers and engines are dam?
aged, and the plates and hulls may he
?warped . This cannot he ascertained,
hpweyer, until an examination is
The Cape Charles had been ordered
on duty for Saturday night, and Friday
afternoon, shortly 'before the first fire,
her officers had examined 'the vessel
thoroughly, and reported her 'to be all
righL The fire was undoubtedly caused
by defective wiring.
A strange coincidence about the burn?
ing, of the steamer is that a former
boat' o? the same name fell a victim to
flames. . The boat was sold by the
company here and sent to New Or?
leans, where it was used as an excur?
sion steamer, and afterwards com?
pletely destroyed by fire.
Clothing House Kobbetl.
Sometime Sunday night, burglars
effected an entrance to the Manahattan
Clothing store, conducted by Mr. Joseph
Banks, and carried off considerable
The thieves entered the alley behind
the Eastman building arid cpuietly
worked .at the window in tjrc rear of the
Manhattan store until they succeeded
in removing all the 'bars. It was an
easy matter to force the window and
once inside they evidently decided to
carry 'away all they could hold.
Mr. Banks yesterday reported the
theft to the police, who are 'working on
the case. Mr. Banks does not know ex?
actly what was carried off, but he has
already missed two hand satchels, sev?
eral suits of new clothing and some
pants. . What else the robbers took is

The Daily Press has received a letter
from Wilbur Badfield, of Company R,
Third Illinois Infantry. The letter is
dated from Lexington, III., and among
other things, the writer says:
"I cannot forget, nor do 1 want to for?
met the city of Newport News, where
we were treated so kindly during our
short stay. I am one of the Third Il?
linois boys. I am sorry we did not
get back to your city when we landed,
a ltd when I am mustered out I am go?
ing to visit it. I love Newport News.
1 never shall forget those peas I got
there. It was the first square meal I
had since leaving home." It is truly
said that the quickest way to reach a
man's heart is via stomach. The theory
is proven in this case.
W.. Byron Simpler, son of Mr. S. M.
Simpler, of this city, and a member o?
the First United States Cavalry, not
long returned from Cuba, writes home
interestingly from Fort Sill, Oklahoma
Territory, where the regiment is now
stationed. The members of that organ?
isation seem to be faring very well ac?
cording to this correspondent, who says,
among other things:
"We have regular houses (stone
houses) and big stoves. I have a nice
single bed, mattress, sheets, pillows,
three blankets, and one big comfort.
Sc you see, I keep nice and warm.

One Instance of tlie Advance In Newport
News Real Kstate.
A striking evidence of the advance in
the value of Newport News real estate
is afforded by a deal that is now on
between Mr. B. B. Wilkins, who owns
the property at the corner of Washing?
ton avenue and Twenty-seventh street,
now occupied as a grocery, and another
party desiring to purchase it.
I The lot measures one hundred by
twenty-live feet. Something over a. year
ago, tlie present owner paid $8,000 for it,
and the building upon it. He spent
some $2,500 remodeling the building and.
making other improvements, and has
just been offered JS 15,000 for the entire
property. He has not closed the deal,
not because he does not consider that ]
this is a good price for it, but because
he is well established in business there,
and does not like the idea of giving up |
such a good stand. It was reported yes?
terday that Mr. Wilkins had sold the
corner to Mr. Heffellinger. of Hampton,
hitf Mr. Wilkins when asked about it,
stifted that the offer was made
A $15,000 offer for this property, which
is improved, is regarded in many quar?
ters as a splendid sale and one gentle?
man who is well'posted on .real estate
stated it was his belief that Mr. Wil?
kins had made really the best sale of ,
any of the Washington avenue property
While some people regard this offer
as an excellent one. there are others in
the real estate business who say that it
is not any too much.
? 'Several attempts have been made to
purchase from 'Mr. Howard Siisby the
lot at the corner of Washington avenue
and Twenty-seventh street, diagonally
across from Mr. Wilkins' place; and of?
fers as high as $13,000 and $14,000 have
been made for it. This lot is the same
size as 'the other and is not improved,
other than by several one-story frame
A well known financier who is buying
in a lot of property here asked Mr. Siis?
by to name his figure for the property,
but he refused to consider a sale.
'Mr. George A. Schmelz, it is under?
stood, was offered $15,000 for his corner
at Twenty-eighth street and Washing?
ton avenue, now occupied by Coffey &
Richards, but he refuse<J^to consider the
offer, saying that he would not take
$20,000 for the property.
It is learned that several large build?
ings Will go up soon on Washington -av?
enue. Quite a large number of property
deals have been made within the past
few weeks and now the purchasers are
preparing to 'build. Most of the build?
ings in queslon will he at least three
stories in height with pressed1 brick
?Mr. Howard 'Siisby has completed his
arrangements for building the sky?
scraper at the corner of Washington
avenue and Twenty-seventh street. Mr.
D. Wiley Anderson, the well known
Richmond architect, has been engaged
to prepare plans for the building, which
will oe ready In a few weeks.
Mr. 'Siisby has practically decided to
use in the front of his six-story struct?
ure the cream brick that shows up so
well in the Citizens & Marine Bank di?
rectly across the street.
Kr. Thomas B. Henley, who repre?
sents Mr. Sil?by here, stated today that
a sufficient number of rooms in the
building had been rented to assure 6 per
cent, on $40,000 annually. There has
been a great rush for rooms in the new ]
office 'building, says Mr. Henley, and he
anticipates no difficulty in renting every j
room in the place when it is ready for
