ROOF GARDEN AT MURPHY'S.
Plans Completed for its Construction by Mr.
Mr. W. C. West, the well-known archi
tect, has completed plans for a .landsome
roof-garden to be built upon the- new
annex of Murphy's Hotel, it will be
built merely as a place of recreation for
the gxiests of the hotel, and so arranged
that it can be used as a winter as well
as a summer resort.
It will not be provided with a stage,
as was the Jefferson roof-garden, but
will be made as attractive as possible
with palms and plants and comfortable
lounging chairs. This change :n the plans
has necessitated the removal of the kitch
ens of the hotel, which it was proposed
to locate on the roof to the top story of
the building, adjacent to the roof -garden.
Plans have also been prepared for t^»
removal of the tumble-down oid builu
ings on Eighth Street between the alley
in rear of the annex and the hpijses that
front on Grace Street. A fine new ware
house, fronting on Igighth Street, will be
' built on this site, and will be occupied
by Sydnor & Hundley, the furniture deal
ers, whose store on Broad Street is also
to -be raised another story.
Bids for the new work have already
I be"en submitted, and the contract awarded
j to the builder of the hotel annex.

Senator Jeffries gave out an interview
at his home on Tuesday, in which he
said he was absolutely confident of vic

The other aspirants and their friends
do not concede this and are all in tine
spirits. It is evident that the chief in
terest at Norfolk will centre in this fight
and that It will be one well worth wit
The forces of all the candidates will be
ably led, and the best talent in the State
Will be brought into play in favor of one
or another of the candidates.
It is highly probable that the Damo
cratic committees of this city and Hen
rico county will decide to hold their pri
maries for the nomination of members of
the House and Senate 011 the same day.
This will facilitate matters greatly, as the
result of the senatorship right could be
known without delay.
Members of the County and City com
mittees will be chosen' at the same time
and in the same manner.
Following- are the candidates for the
Senate, so far as announced:
From the city— Messrs. George Wayne
Anderson, S. S. P. Patteson, Sol. U.
Bloomberg. Frro* the county— Messrs.
L-. O. Wendenberg and Julian Bryant.
Messrs. A. yon N. Rosenegk nnd Allen
G. Collins have been mentioned as proba
ble candidates from the county, but it
is not thought either of them will run.
There are a great many candidates for
the House here and in the county. For
the city. Messrs. Keliey and Folkes will
stand again. Messrs. Ordway Puller,
James Lewis Anderson, A. C. Harman
and Hunsfibn Gary will most likely run,
while many others are mentioned.
Out in the county there are three can
didates for the House— Delegates Felix M. '
Jones and Messrs. Thomas XV*. Gardner
and J. T. Lewis.
The friends of Mr. Julian Bryant, who
several days apo announced ))is candi
dacy for the Semite from the fiistrict of
Richmond city and Henrico county, are
very active in his interest, and iiis stock
is apparently going up very fast.
Mr. Bryant lives in the county, but en
joys a lucrative law practice in this city.
He was twice a member of the House of
Delegates from this city and declined to
stand for re-election in 1597.
Mr. Bryant is a young man of consid
erable ability, and his long legislative ex
perience is proving very helpful to him
in his canvass for the upper branch of
the General Assembly.
