(Special to The Tlnwe-Dlfipatcri.)
! PETERSBURG, A'A., August L?All tho
land necessary to be used In connection
with the proposed Improvement of Appo
matlox Blvcr at this city has been se?
cured. '??? total cost of tho property is
$i',000, or J1.000 more than tho estimate of
the United States engineers In charge of
the matter. No definito progresa beyond
???curing tho land has been mude recont
ly In tho diversion plans. The engineer
In charge Is expected In Petersburg with?
in a few days, and doubtless something
tangible will develop In the conforenco
of the commltteo with him.
Just opposite tho city a considerable
trc^t of land will bo purchased In con?
nection with the Improvement, nnd a lit?
tle appr?hension has existed In tho minds
of some of the citizens that tho city or
county would bo unablo to exercise any
jurisdiction over this property, on which
places might bo built and conducted to
the disadvantage of the morals of the
county. This could hardly be done, slnco
the land would bo purchased by the gov?
ernment, which, In that case, would bo
a land owner, and tho Jurisdiction would
remain with the county, and not be lost,
as It would be lf the property wero ceded
to tho government and become a reser?
vation. This matter will bo Investigated
thoroughly, however, before any definito
action Is taken. All danger from this
source can be easily eliminated by tho
city becoming tbo owner of tho land nnd
leasing it for long periods to tho United
States Government. Tho citizens gen?
erally aro eager to tee work begin on tho
Improvement, and doubtless by the be?
ginning of another year everything will
be ready for the work.

Rev. Dr. L. W. Munhall Is ono of tho
most prominent and popular orthodox
evangelists of the age. His home is In the

voice has been heard and his oloquence
captivated largo audiences In all parts
of our land. Thero may bo,, and doubt?
less aro, "wild dio" evangelists, but Dr.
Munhall ln bis personality and methods
Is as far removed from such a class as
tho east Is from the west. His style Is
argumentative. Ho discusses his sub
Jests in a thoroughly logical and enter?
taining manner, and seeks to lodge con?
viction of truth rather than to play on
the emotions. There Is nothing sensa?
tional ln his sermone, and local, political
nnd social conditions are not touched
upon.
Dr. Munhall has proached In tbe f.Tst
churches of tho land, and ho la a personal
frlned of hundreds of tho foremost
ministers of the several Protestant
churches from the Lakes to tho Gulf, and

a profound scholar, und is as widely
known In the weird of letters hy his pen
productions as his fame as a platform
speaker Is extensivo.
Professor O. J. Pugh, the choriste, who
accompanies him, Is an artist in his lino,
and his singing has been greatly enjoyed.
At 3 o'clock this afternoon Dr. Mun?
hall will deliver In the Academy of Music
his far-famod lecture on "The Book of
Books." This lecture has excited wide?
spread interest and tho highest com?
mendation.
Mi?. John L. Williams will preside, Pro?
fessor Pugh sing "Ora Pro Nobls," and
thore will be selections by a male quar?
tette of well-known slngors. It will bo a
great occasion, nnd a lnrge crowd is
expected to be present. This Is a "men
only" meeting.
At night Dr. Munhall will preach at the
tent on the lot facing Marshall Street
nnd botweon T?lneteenth and Twentieth
Streets.
Dr. Munhall Is sixty years old and has
been ln the evangelistic work thirty-four
years. Ho has traveled an average of 30,000
miles a year. He was actively Identified
In the organization of the Railway Y.
?. C. A. work, and has been a valuable
ally over since; for many years the State
secretary of Indiana and a member of
tho International Commltteo. Ho Is an
author of coniddornble note.
