which has characterized*, Mr. Reed's
performance of the play on previous
occasions. His makeup and speech
were Irresistnbly suggestive of the
droll. If somewhat sihabby political
character with which everybody is fa?
miliar, ills very keen touches Of na?
ture were received with abundant ap?
plause."

situations, ami blonds scenei* of deep
pathos with powerful dramatic cli?
maxes. "Friends" comes Christmas

COAL FOR_ UNCLE SAM ?

lulli Hoys to Noll on Her.
The Virginian a week ago noticed
the departure of a vessel from Lam?
bert's Point, loaded with coal, for the
United Slates coaling stutlon at Hono?
lulu, which seems lo have created a big
stir among dealers throughout the
country, as will be seen by the following
special from Washington, in the Now
York Times, of the 16th lust.:
"Coal dealers are exercised over the
purchase in open market by the Navy
Department last week of H.fiOi) tons Of
coal and the charter of a ship to take
the fuel from Norfolk to the Hawaiian
islands. This is in addition to the 1.500
tons of conl for ivhlch bids were regu?
larly Invited by advertisement, in this
latter Instance, the time allowed for the
delivery of the coal was but forty-tlve
days ?practically limiting the bidding
to Pacific const firms. This action
aroused the protest of some of the Rast?
ern coal concerns, who fell that they
had not been permitted to enter the
competition.
"Assistant Secretary McAdoo disap?
proved of the recommendation of the
ltufenu Chief in charge of coal pur?
chases. Who wanted the entire amount
purchased In open market. This litl
reau Chief insisted that there was an
emergency, and there was no time to
seek bids in the regular manner.
"The purchase of the 2.000 tons comes
as a surprise lo most of the coal deal?
ers, ami they are naturally disap?
pointed in not being permitted to bid
on the lot of fuel. Tito purchase Is
made of a Virginia firm, which sells a
variety of steamer fuej coal, which
the experts consider the mast accepta?
ble, nit hough it Is frankly acknowledged
that the present purchase is by way of
experiment. The coal men point out
that the method of purchusing coal in
open market Is not economical, and they j
sny that the department Lr paying 35 to
45 cents per ton more than was paid
for the former lot Itought. The conl :
just purchased has cost the riovernrnent
per ton. nnd it will cost $5.50 per ton
to transport the fuel from Norfolk to:
Honolulu. The Department nfllcers say
in defense of their action that they are j
permitted by the statutes to secure coal
at any time in open market, without
competition, if they choose. The plan
Is In secure fuel which will steam fur
1 liest for Ute least money, and it does,
not follow that a low-priced coal gives
the best results. Sometimes, they say,
it Is more economical lo pay more for
coal which will last longer than the
cheaper kind. They say they are yield?
ing a great deal when they advertise
for bids for coal at any time, and th'? re?
cent call for proposals for the 1,500 tons
Is regarded in the Department as a
great concession, made, it Is admitted
by Mr. MeAdoo, because he differed
from the coal purchasing bureau chief
In admitting Ihe coal dealers to the
competition. The emergency which
exists at Honolulu Is not definitely de?
scribed at the Navy Department."
The full rigged ship J. H. Thomas,
now at Lambert's Point, will sail for
Honolulu to-dny with another carco of
coal for the United States Navy. W. S.
Smith and George Sharhi two Norfolk
hoys, will sail on her. They expect to
be gone a year.

CoIOb lead to coughs, coughs to grip,
pneumonia and consumption; therefore,
it Is all important to check a cold be?
fore it reaches the lungs. Munyon's:
Cold Cure will positively break a cold
inside of twenty-four hours ir taken as
soon as the cold manifests itseir. When
the cold reaches the lungs or bronchial
tubes the Cough Cure should be used
alternately every half hour with the
Cold Cure. The Cold Cure Is guaran?
teed to prevent pneumonia If used in
the beginning of a cold. Pneumonia or
inflammation of the lun.es can be con?
trolled by the use of these two euren.
The Cough Cure positively cures bron?
chitis, tickling In the throat, hoarseness,
less of voice, soreness of the chest, dilti
culty in breathing, hacking cough and
all pulmonary diseases where the lungs
are not too far decomposed or covered
with tubercles.
If you are ailing step Into the nearest
drug store and get a 2fic. vial of one
of Munyon's Remedies. No matter what
your disease, or how many doctors have
failed to cure. It will give you teller.
