The fact that tbo Atnerioan game of

"A liHEt I illt fill.''
The YikqixiAS has long realized that
the commuuities near tho head waters
of tbe Elizabeth have separately many
businessi[aJvuutauges . and interests,
which, if nominally united, would rank
far higher iutheeyos of manufacturing
nud othur investors, beuca its advocacy
of "The Greater Norfolk." There is
but littlu difference uf opinion as to the
benefits to accrue if these communities
were under one goverumeut, Souti
nieut, however, comes iu as an ubstaole
in regard to the name of such a city,
und tbe suggestion has been mudo to
pel c? a name other than that uf
"Greater Norfolk." There muy bo u
great deal in tho suggestion ami. there?
fore, as a preliminary step toward tho
end iu view, The Viiumsiax invites
from all who feel interested, residing
iu Norfolk, Portsmouth ur Berkley, to
send in to tbis office that name for a
city which, iu tbe sendot'a candid opin?
ion) would have the great.'st advertis?
ing value, not to a part only,but to tho
whole uf a great city, to bo made up
of onr three comparatively weak com?
munities.
The names sent will be published iu
T?E Yikuisian until May 1st, by which
time it is buped thnt u name may bo
suggested which the great majority
would recognize as the must avuilubio
for business reasons.

The fact that "uu investigating com?
mittee of tbu New Jersey Legislature
is now exposing the cruukedness of
some of tbe ofliciuls of that State,"
causes the Savannah News tu remark,
that after a while tho people will begin
to wonder whether there are not almost
as many thieves as honest men in pub?
lic office.
It is true that the number of officials
who from time to time have gone wrong
"are astonishingly large," and it is
true that every,now and then tho news
papers ooolaiu au accuunt of tbo disap?
pearance of some State Treasurer or
some publio ollicial with public funds,
and it is equally true thut too many
thieves have crawled to high places,
but Tue Virginian would regret to
know that "there are almost as mauy
thieves in public office as there nro
honest men," and it will bo slow to be?
lieve anything of the kind.
There have been, and no doubt there
will continue to be, mcu in official life,
who will pluuder tho people tie-spite all
tbe safeguards thrown around them, but
oll such tuen sooner or Inter are forced
nut, aud in a large majority of cases,
justice is meted out to them,
It is very difficult iu this day for
men to commit any very great ofl'ence
And not bo found out. There may be
delays in bringing some such peonlo to
the bar of justice and there may be
still further delay iu eecuriug thuir
convictioD, but the statistics of crime
boars evidence that the bulk of the
criminals arrested have beou convicted
n;i.I punished for the orimea committed.
However, there are too many disnou
ost men holding office fur the public
good. Public office should always be a
jpablie traft.

"Therefore thirty-tivo Senators in tlio
npper branch of the North Carolina
Legislature," remarke tho Petersburg
Index-Appeal, "of whom six are Demo?
crat* and (ho remaining tweuty-uino
Republicans aud 1'optilists, aud tbo
raid which tbe majority statesmen
made upon tho offices is probably
without ii parallel.
"They hud violent hands upon every
thing in sight," says our contemporary, ;
"and when the smoke of battle had
cleared away aud tho (ioueral Assem- |

Theae aro the mvci who, holore the
election, were going to do so much lor
North Carolina, but after getting oloot I
ed were,all for self. In mauy respects
North Caroliuo is n great State, and
just wnat her mu has been that she
should bo alllu-ted with such uiou as
tt.oso abovo referred to, is difficult to
nuilerstand.

of tho Unstern question, Russia aud
Qreat Britain shuukt iuturforo und pro

be edifying,
It would bo a great international

Japan by force uf arms if it is ucces

But then it makes a difference what

If either tho great nations of Europe

they desired und to huld on to it with
their usual teuueity after taking it.

album, containing xnoro than a thou?

eventually to he chosen to form tho
household of tho princess on her becom?
ing empress. With every picture was a
biography and a short description of tho
character and disposition of the origi?
nal. It is said, however, that Prim ess
Alix immediately returned the hook,
accompanied by n letter in her own
handwriting, to tho effect that she pre?
ferred to submit to the guidance of her
future husband in all such matters
rather than trust toany passing impres?
sion she herself might receive from

Doctorloc Tea I.i nTm.
According to tho police reports, n
firm in London was rocently convicted
of doctoring used tea leaves and sell
; them fur leaves which had not yet
been infused. Tho ingenious method
adopted was to collect from largo res?
taurants spout leaves ami to subject
them to a kind of withering process.
This was achieved by projecting tbem
through a rcdhot iron pipe, out of
which they came curled up and dried
ready to bo resold?wo trust not to tho
restaurants from which they came.
The business appears to have boon a
flourishing one, for it catUO out in evi?
dence that 11:010 than C>,000 pounds
weight of this "revived" tea had been
sold in less than two months. Unfortu?
nately for the promoters of the indus?
try, an old ai't of parliament has de?
clared that thu sale of spent tea leaves
is illegal, and so, for the present, theso
leaves, except for what uso tho bouse*
maid makes of them, must ?tili remain
