The principal topic for discussion was
the report (if the Education Board, the?
n-port of which was offered by Mr.
.1. Taylor Kllyson, of Richmond. From
the repot t it appears that 61 ministerial
students are receiving aid from this
Board?ten more than last year. Four?
teen of these are at the Southern Bap?
tist Theological Seminary and forty
four at Richmond college. Quite a
number participated In the discussion,
nil of whom emphasized the importance
of establishing- schools Intermediate be?
tween the common school and the col?
lege. Prof. Charles Cockc, of Holtln's
Institute, urged upon the churches ami
parents the importance of insisting on
a careful academic training before ap?
plying to the college. Prof. Charte?
Winston, of Richmond College, followed
In an address, in which ho emphasized
the fact that the college bud raised it?
standard of admission und that the
young men who were not prepared for
Collegiate training were not wanted.
The venerable Dr. Robert Ryiand.
now In bis f'lst year, arose and ad?
dressed the Association with as much
vigor as a man of forty. He favored
the establishment of a regulation on the
part Of the College to prevent the en?
trance to Its studies of any young man
-who was not prepared for the same.
7>r. Hatcher remarked that he thought
the churches were Improving In the qual?
ity and grade of the men whom they
?were sending to the College and that al?
though it was ditllcult nt times just to
know what to do with some of the ap?
plicants for admission, y.-t the great?

cerned that the student should be care?
fully prepared before entering Rich?

A. It. Woodlin, of Hamilton, and F. C.
McConnetl, of Lynchburg.
The Baptist Oenerai Association of

tist Church, of which Rev. T. T. Fnton.
now of Louisville, Ky., was then pastor.
Rev. T. s. Dunaway, of Fredericks
burg, the president of the Association,
makes a. most admirable presiding
officer. Tn accepting his re-election last
night as president of the association
for a third term, he returned his most
heartfelt thanks for the compliment
paid him by the association. He said
however, that he should rule as he
thought right and proper, but that an
nppenl could be taken from his deci?
sion and ho would not take It as pi r
sonal. President Dunaway declared
that any man elected chairman of n de?
liberative body, who took an appeal
from his decision ns personal, was noth?
ing more than an autocrat. Mr. Duna?
way was born in Lancaster county. Va,,

The largest number of accidents which
constantly occur In connection with
electricity, Is a subject for considera?
ble alarm, especially In a community
where electric wires and electrical ap?
pliances are being Introduced Into al?
most every business. Very often the
danger Is enhanced by poor insulation
or Incompetent workmen.
The fact Unit electricity is being so
generally used for bulb light and power,
in our city, is a sinnig proof of Nor?
folk's progressive spirit.
In view of this, the Southern Electric
Construction and Supply Company,
which has recently located here, should
be particularly welcome. The com?

Some revolution of the Government's
policy Is found in a statement made
by Sir Robert Peel in tl speech delivered

thirty years. He declared he had learn?

sources that Ihe Government intended
to consolidate and lake over all mort?

landlords at .1 per cent., thus enabling
I them lo save :? per cent, as most hind
lords have been obliged to raise loans at
r> per cent. Thi' scheme, according to
Sir Rob. rt. has the support of several
of the ministers. The Westminister
Gazette describes tit.- measure as a
landlords' cabinet 'bill. Such Vi bill
would certainly bo the salvation of

are heavily mortgaged, but It would
