burjr at Itiolimoiul.
The Virginia Leaguo was started on its
onward course yesterday afternoon at a
meeting of the inagnates at (Murphy's
Hotel.
It was decided to open the season with
a six-club circuit on April SOth with Pe?
tcrsburg in Richmond, Portsmouth "in
Xorfolk, and Xewport 'Xews and Hamp?
ton on the Hampton grounds, which lies
midway between the two cities.
The brightest prospects appear before
tlie managers, of whom were present
Messrs. E. HV Cunningham, of Xorfolk,
president of the league; J. T. Brady, of
Portsmouth; R. HV Harvey; of Xewport
News; Jake Wells, of Richmond; F. M.
Foster, of Petersburg, and Edward Ash
enbark, of Hampton.
OTHER CITIES AXXIOUS.
The meeting consumed -much time go?
ing ovcr the entire field. Mr. Palmer, of
Roanoke, was present and presented the
claims of his city, and a letter was read
from Mr. Lazarus, of Lynchburg, but it
was determined to make the league one
of six clubs.
Another meeting will be held in Xor?
folk at the- MoiiUcello Hotel on April
ith, when the scheduie will be adopted.
The scheduie committee embraces
Messrs. Wells, Brady, anu Harvey.
SYRACUSE OLUB COMJ.XG.
A scheduie of exhfbition games was
arranged with the Xational League clubs
and the Syracuse team will play over the
circuit. The Syracuse club will embrace
almost cntireHy old Richmond players,
and the games here will be watched with
interest
Manager Wells, will not announce his
Richmond team until after the Syracuse
club has been made up, and it is quite
probable with all the players on the
market now that Richmond will have
as fine a club as lt had In the -Atlantic
League.

Both -ftessrs. F. R. Lassiter and Robert
Turnbull, of Brunswick, candidates for
the seat. in Congress- lately occupied. by
the late S- P. Epes, were here yesterday
aml each pressing their claims vigoroualy,
but strangely, neither ot them spoke..
The -pecple, of whioh there wero.a goodly
inumber present, had expected to have
hcaird tho candidates speak and could not
account for their failure to do so. The
candidates each are well known, partieu

A meeting of Uic tobacco srowers of
Mecklenburg and those Interested in ad

was held in the court-house yesterday.

for organization, which encourages the
small factories to rcsist the lar~e con
cerns, which are swalJ<oy*ing up the small
tobacco factories throughout the country.
The Jordan plan was endorsed. Another
meetins will be held soon.
The last Legislature authorized the
Board of Supervisors of Mecklenburg to
adopt a "dog tax" if they thought proper
to do s<5?, but I doubt if it will ever be
adopted, as it was passed by the supervis?
ors of Mecklenburg some twenty-five
years ago, under a similar law, and it was
so unponulaa* that at the next election
every member of the board who voted" for
the dog tax, was defeated at the nolls,
and it i.s believed that the present board
wili make a note of this and act accord?
