Though the day was one that was very
Inclement, yet In co-operation with the
members of that pust, many of the busi?
ness houses wero visited, nnd It was
gratifying to report at tho end ol the day,
twenty-five new members added tu Nor?
folk Post, Not only wore thoso members
secured, but a renewed interest was
created, whereby, greater zeal will be. put
into the ?. P. ?. work of that section.
The explanation of the workings of the
association to many with whom these
members etimo in contact, en?
couraged tho thought of tho great good
to be accomplished by the co-operation
of the employer und the employee, espe?
cially to tlie general advancement of the
community in which these organizations
exist. It Is one reason why the United

as chief host of the occasion, and ac?
complished his work In great shape and
very pleasing '.o those In attendance.
Many speeches wore made on this oc?
casion, witli reference to the work ol' the
Travelers' Protective Association, nnd at
the same time It was demonstrated that
the great aid that could be rendered any
undertaking of the locality by the T. P.
A.'s would almost assure its success.
The speeches wero freely punctuated
with spontaneous applause of the most
hourly character, and tho Post unani?
mously endorsed the Jamestown Exposi?
tion and pledged the co-operation of Its
members in behalf of the big show.
Among those who were called upon by
the loaatrnastcr, were Mr. Phil P.oskam,

The visitors came home with a renewed
desire to see that the Jamestown Ex?

Major Anderson Talks of
CONTROL OF VA. LINES
Believes Pennsylvania Company Domi?
nates N. 8c W, and C. &. O.?Says
It Is a Mena?a t? Indus.ry from
Norfolk lo Bristol.
It wns reported hero through n tel??
arum from New York last night that
Attorney-General Vv. A, Anderson was
contemplating beginning nctlon in the
United otates Court to test the validity of
the alleged control of tho Norfolk and
Western ?md Chesapeake and Ohio Bail?
wnys by the Pennsylvania system.
When seen at his homo on North Fifth
Street, lnat night, Major Anderson was
surprised to loam that any one had sug?
gested such a thing, (hough tin talked
freely concerning tho effect Of tho con?
trolling Interest In the two road? beine
owned by the Pennsylvania Company?
MnJor Anderson said ho hud received
no reliable Information which would at
present Justify any nucll action on be
liiiif of Virginia, and thnt he hnd not
Intimated to any ono uny purpose to in?
stituto uny such oult.
MENACE TO VIIUHNIA.
Uo thought It proper, however, to say
that from the limo he lenrned thnt u con?
trolling interest In the Chesapeake und
Ohio und Norfolk and Western Hallway
Companies hnd linen acquired by the
Pennsylvania Company, or by persons in
Its Interest, ho had regarded tho nc
qUlsltlon of tho control of theso Virginia
companies by their most powerful rival
ami competitor as a menace, not only t.)
Virginia, and particularly to Norfoilt,
Newport News and Richmond, but also us
Imporllllng the normal growth and devel?
opment of both Hies? great rnllway
systems nnJ of all communities and re?
gions which depend upon those great
ronds for an outlet t otho sea and to the
markets of the world.
Major Anderson declared that there
was no foundutlon for the statement
that ho had decided as yet. to institute
any proceedings to test the. validity uf ihn
alleged community control of the Vir?
ginia lines of traffic In tho Interest of tue
Pennsylvania Hnllroncl Company, but
from his conversation It could be easily
gathered that he was entirely out of
sympathy with what he believes to be
going on In tills line.
The question is one that good lawyers
believe does not belong to tho courts, and
there are those who believe it can never
be settled except through nmeno?.Tient to
the Interstate commerce law or th? crea?
tion of a National Corporation Commis?
sion with ample powers.
The question, however. Is ? must in?
teresting one, and affects in th? minds of
many the material industries of the State
all the way from Norfolk to Bristol.
REHAN AND SKINNER
Former In Excellent Spirits,
Unaware of the Death of
Perhaps tho most brilliant audience that
has assembled at t-ho Academy this season
witnessed the production of "The Taming
of tlie Shrew" last evening, as presented
by Ada Relian and Otis Skinner. Tho ap?
pearance of either une of these stars
would have beon a worthy attraction, but
the opportunity afforded to gee both t.lie
same evening made tne event unusually
The production was most artistic and
most complete. Of ell of Shakespeare's
comedies "The Taming of the Shrew"
Is perhaps the liveliest In Its action. In
the production of last night tho action
was never allowed to ting for a moment.
That Miss Return Is an artist of rare pmiI
Is a fact which none will dispute. Tho
pince she has won Upon tho stage, and
her efforts in behalf of the highest Ideals
in ho?.? art, are matters with which tho
publia arc quite familiar. Her portrayal
of Katharine was an achievement worthy
of the actress,
Mr. Sklnnor admirably impersonated
Petruchlo, the wife tamer. Whatever
this actor undertake-' he does well, and his
portrayal In "The Taming of the Shrew"
Is no exception.
Tho news uf the death Of Miss Italian's
brother, which occurred Sunday, Iidm not
yet rem bed her cars, and It is understood
that diligent effort Is belni; mode to pre?
vent Ikt hearing of her borea venienti at
least for tho presont, It Is feared that
she may break down und completely col?
lapse If the fact Is made known to her,
and this is being guarded Rgulnst. Thnt
she had not heard of her misfortune last
nicht was clearly evident, for she seemed
In excellent spliits. nnd In the second
scene of the fourth act some little happen?
ing must have occurred musido of the
routine of her work, fur she plainly show?

lines certainly did noi call for it? B. C.
