sity or college team during the past

uro Berry, who played a line game at
end for the Georgtown University team,
and Lankford, who captained the Rich?
mond College team.
Portsmouth needs nothing In regards
to her oltiyers, as they are all old und
Those who love the game should not

should be picsenunnd see it played as
the big teams phi* it. This will be the
last game hero thp season, and it w'H
be a warm mempfer. ??Both teams have
put in some good practice and con?
sequently they will not only have
crack-a-Jack individual players, but
there will be a gobll dash of team work
mixed in, and that's what makes the
game spicy. :
The game will be called at 10 a. m.

TEMPLES OF EQUITY
Justice and Mercy Mingled Hap?
Tbc Wine Judge or Ibe follce court
Deals Geittly Wllb ibe diiort
mi a tea m no Sin wllb Exceeding
And when the festive holiday season
was drawing to a close and the dis?
tant December sun shone warm upon
the land hereabouts, making them
the days 1 of spring-time,
and all the earth seemed glad
with music, and dancing, Jue
tlce Robert came upon the bench and
administered unto his people bang up
Justice in a measure suitable to the sa
credness of the Joyous occasion".
Now his people were a white people
and fair to look upon, and he. loved
them with a love exceeding great, for
upon frequent occasions they had ex?
alted him, and in his great heart was
gratitude even as the myriad pebbles
upon the sandy beach, and dally he sat
upon his throne to Judge and to bloss
them, and his equity wa3 unequalled
in all the country round about.
ALSO ANOTHER PEOPLE.
Rut there was also another people
In the land: a people of various colors,
who did sin with exceeding regularity,
and whose complaints were aired be?
fore HIsaoner with great frequency.
These varl-tlnted people found no fa
fur with the ruler, and he dealt with
them according1 to the law and the'
ordinances, for they failed to regard
the commandments of Mr, Goodrldge,
neither regarded they the mandates
laid down by the wise men who com?
pose the Board of Health.
Now this ruler lived amongst the
Philistines, and according to custom
he had to mingle frequently with them,
yet. In his heart tqere waq no Ill-will
Inwards them: neithw from his lips
came any unbecoming words. He dwelt
beside the river called Elizabeth, In
a place known as Ghent, In a land of
promise (principally promises), and he
found much favor in the eyeis of his
people. He was 'learned?not In his
own conceit?hut In the law, nnd other
rulers came from the distant country
of Warwiek and from tho pleasant val?
leys of Brambleton and the fertile
fields of Huntersvllle nnd Atlantic
City, to sit at his feet and gather words
of wisdom that fell from hi* lips.
A HAD HAND MAIDEN.
Flrett then came a hand-maiden,
whose name was Fannie Ronson, and
slio was black, and her ways wore ways
of darkness, and she did smite with a
stone another woman of her kind
named Lucy Jackson. The. Judge was
wroth against Fannie, and commanded
that she pay Into the treasury ten
pUcos of silver.
Susie Jones, a decendent of Ham, was
adjudged to be a womnn whose daily
wall; and conversation was improper,
and it wan demanded of her that she
pay the expenses of auch Judgment.
James Smith mingled with the wine
blbpei? for a! very long time, but the
ruler ,had conlposslon on him and told
fMm^i^H^ss^y1,1 peace- nnd sin
no more. "*"'?*-? a ?
Jojeph, whose sur-iwme'v , X-?JW
cried out before the Judge??nC'^"d:
"Oli, thou, great ruler of little things
such riS inc. I pray the deal gently with
me. for I was hungered and they gave
me drink; I was thirty and they min?
istered ur.;,i me; I was cold and they
warmed me with wine!" The judge
had compassion upon him and allowed
him to go.
A WICKED YOUTH.
Thomas Malr.tin, a wicked youth,
found no favor with th.;'Judge, for he
us^aulted two white hoys, and his con?
duct was very bad. The rlghteoua
ruler was sore vexed with him, and
demanded that in- pay two-score pieces
of silver into the treasury of the city.
Albert Frazler and Otis Murray, two
youths of tender years, were, upon In?
vestigation, found not guilty, and were
told to hasten hither.
Oscar Prouf, In an unguarded mo
mo lit, allowed his angry passions to
rise, and he did smite a woman, whose
name was Jennie Jonen, but extenu?
ating circumstances reduced to a min?
imum the heinousness of the- offence,
und he was let off on payment of
F?ILEf) TO PROVIDE.
Alexander P.yrd was very wicked In
the sight of the judge, who said to him,
"Alexander, is it not commanded of
thee that thou shall feed thy beast of
burden? and yet, upon the bones of this
horse, I see but a very 'little meat; and
he look* as though he would fain ea:t
of tho dead leaves on Gran by street,
or the withered grass of the court?
house square. I am much vexed with
thee, and command that my people col?
lect from thee forty pieces of sliver;
and If thou fall to provide for this
bea'st in the future woe be unto thee."
Henry Williams did take that which
did not to him belong, and he was as?
sessed twenty pieces of silver.
JUSTICE HAWKS' COURT.
C. Esposlto, alias Christian Ross, was
before Justice Hawks yesterday on
three warrants sworn out by Louis
Mahgtalctto, president of the Italian
Beneficial Association of Norfolk and
Portsmouth, on the following charges:
Desertion of wife and children in Read?
ing, Pa., and living with two women
here, one of whom he claims to be his
wife: keeping a disorderly house and
selling liquor without a license. The
case was continued until Tuesday after
no, m at 2 o'clock and bail allowed In
$100 security, given by Kate Jannett
It will be remembered that Esposlto
and Marglnletto had a little trouble a'
short while ago In regards to a false
publication made by the former, ac?
cusing the latter of fraudulently using
the funds of the society.. Esposlto was
expelled from the organization on ac?
count of this publication.

RAPID INCREASE OF TRAFFIC
MAKES NEW RULES NECES?
And now comes the news that the
increase of business of the Belt Line
railroad since its opening is considera?
ble more than 100 Der cent., and that
the rules established at the opening of
this great benefit to this port are be?
ing revised and new arrangements to
care for the great and increasing bulk
of traffic are being made.
Sixty cars par day was the start, 'or
the bulk of traffic about three weeks
after the line was opened, or at the
time the Vlrglnlan-rPUot reporter took
his trip over the line with Superinten?
dent (then acting) Shafer, of the Belt.
Now 150 to 175 per day Is the average
and the Increase is so rapid that the
new year will probably see It a cool 200
cars almost at tho opening of January.
Formerly the big bridge across the
Southern Branch kept Its draw open all
night and only the red nnd green sld?
lights were necessary, as the bridge
was not' used at night- Now the bridge
carries its red lights as well and night
and day trains are both run. As the
sail and steam traffic of the river were
far In preponderance at the start, the
bridge was kept open tho most of the
time, only being closed on the ap
proach of a train, and tho fine gasoline
engine could get tip power for moving
the draw at any time in ten to fifteen
minutes. This has not been changed
yet, but Superintendent Shafer Bees in
the near future a need for other rules
fast being forced upon him.'nnd It may
not be further off than another year,
when the opening of the bridge for
navigation's uses and otherwise keep
Ing it closed for train traffic will be
This road was built with roadbed and
accommodations for four tracks, and
the need of all four is not thought to
be far distant. Property all along the
line is on the rise In value as manu?
factories and shops anywhere along its
tracks are by It made contiguous to
any road running into or out of Nor
The new arrangements for the use
of the bridge necessitated a visit to
the Harbor Board and their ruling on
the number, description and position of
IiEhts to be used on the bridge nnd
draw at night. This Mr. Shafer has
attended to and the new rules will
soon be promulgated.
