Daughters cf the Confederacy
A POPULAR STATEMENT
The Statement that the Daughters of
Privates Are as Good as the Daugh?
ters of Generals Meets With
(Special to The Times-Dispatch.)
NORFOLK, VA., Oct. 23.-The sugges?
tion by Mrs. Hudglns ,of Hampton, that
crosses of honor be presented to the
Confederate veterana on July 4th, raised
a storm of protest in the State Conven?
tion of the United Daughters of the Con?
federacy here to-day. Many delegates said
that It was a "United States holiday,"
and would not do at all. Mrs. J. E.B.
Stuart, suggested all Saints'- Day as ap?
propriate, but the queetlon was finally
left to the Individual chapters.
Mrs. Evans, the secretary, moved that
the fourth vice-president bo required to
act as inspector, and Instruct the members
In their duties. Mrs. Alexander thought
this motion, which was adopted, an ex?
cellent one, as she knew of many women
who had joined the Daughters merely to
"get Into society."
Mrs. F. A. Walke, of Norfolk, declared
that it had been emphatically declared at
the last State session of the Daughters,,
that there could be no social distinctions
in the Daughters. Shop girls, stenogra?
phers?the daughters of tho privates?she
declared, were as good as the daughters
of the generals. This sentiment was re?
ceived with applause.
The Daughters at midnight elected Miss
Ruth "ennlngs. of Lynchburg, president
of the State organization; Mrs. Otto- L.
Evans, of Lynchburg, first vice-president;
-Mrs. Brockenbrough. of Petersburg, sec?
ond vice-president; Mrs. J. E. B. Stuart,
third vice-president; Mrs. Robert Talt,
of Norfolk, treasurer; Mrs. Sterling, re?
cording secretary: Mrs. Philip Yeatman,
of Norfolk, historian.

HON. J. T. ELLYSON
Believes Democrats Will Have
a Big Majority in the
Hon. J. Taylor Ellyson was in a happy
frame of mind concerning tho outlook
for Democratic success In tho State this
fall when seen In his office by a repre?
sentative of Tho Times-Dispatch on
Tho popular chairman saw nothing In
the way of Democratic success as a
general proposition, though ho admitted
that thero woro close fights in somo of
tho House and Senate' districts, "I bo
lieve we shall hove overwhelming ma?
jorities in both houses of tho next Gen?
eral Assembly," ho said. "Tho now regis?
tration has helped us, and proportionately
our peoplo havo outreglstercd tho other
side. While the campaign appears dull,
and Is undoubtedly so from a Stato
standpoint, I am of opinion thnt Interest
In tho local contests Is sufficient to bring
out a large voto, and once out, we may
count upon our share of them."
Mr. Ellyson expressed the belief that
the election this fall would bo absolutely
fair, and he welcomed the spirit which Is
abroad In the State to purify tho ballot
and to place the election methods beyond
the slightest suspicion of unfairness. The
chairman announced some appointments,
which will bo found in another column
of this paper.

A Great Find Is Made by a
Gypsy Near the City
To find ?600 In one's pillow, after hav?
ing the use of it for more than a year,
makes such a pillow well worth having.
This Is tho good fortune of "Gypsy
Jack," whose camp Is nut on the Hermit?
age Road, near tho plant of the Virginia
I'acklng Company. Tho remarkable part
of it Is that, despite his uncommonly
gcod luck, Gypsy Jack has been almost
miserable alnoo ho found the money, fear?
ing some one would murder him for It.
It is now safe in bank, however, so he
Is content once more, being troubled only
with tho anxiety that possibly he le
dreaming, and will soon wake to find his
riches have flown. Tills Gypsy Jack la
not the one known to pollco circles.
Last Tuesday night "Gypsy Jack" re?
tired to his humblo couch of straw, and
though ho coaxod slet?p with all his pow
ors, Morpheus spurned lilm and passed
by on the other side. Ho rolled and
tossed. His head did not rest easily.
The pillow which ho had boon using for
a long time with comfort and satisfac?
tion seemed to havo a knot In It. Ho
Bhook It up and again put. his head on it,
but the knot remained, He was getting
pretty mad now, and feeling around for
his hunting knife, cut the pillow open
and felt for that lump. To his amaze?
ment and fright, he pulled nut a roll of
bills?lives, ten and twenties. Nervously
lingering tlveni and counting, he ascer?
tained that ho had $600 In good, honest
money, that would pass muster anywhere
In this country. ]3ut ho was nearly
scared to death, All eloep was driven
ftom his eyes. Ha didn't need .the pillow
any more that night. He exported every
minute for some one to put his head In
the tant und shoot him for hie monoy.
He crept as Quietly us possible to the
Virginia Packing Company's plant and re?
mained up all that night with the watch?
man. Ho did not rest a minute until he
put the money where It would bo of no
gain to any ono to kill him.
"Gypsy Jack" Is as good an Irishman
an ever came from the Emerald Isle, But
he married a real gypsjv who went about
tho country telling fortunes. About a
year ago she died after a brief Illness,
and "Gypsy Jack" thinks she must huvo
put the monoy In the pillow and forgot
to tell him of It. lie Is still the inhabi?

The two teams, probably without doubt
the best In the South, with the possible
exception of North Carolina, are known
to be unusually well matched, and both
elevens are in well-nigh perfect physical
condition, and both coached In team play
to tho point of machine-like precision. A
huskier lot of young giants it would be
hard to ilnd, With muscl?a hardened and

It is difficult to get an accurate state?
ment of the real weights of the men ori
either team. The management on both
sirios underestimate the avoirdupois of
their men for private reason, probably
connected with wagers that may bo had.

This Is a conservative estimate, to call

usually lighter than the line men. At least
two of the men in the lino exceed ?U)
pounds each In weight,
