fore who answered the description of
his father, and who gave the name of
.Wilson. The meeting took place near
the exposition grounds. Wilson had
been drinking. He said he was going
to Norfolk to visit his son. Wilson
eaya he visited tiie locality where his
father was said to have been seen, but
could discover nobody who had met
him.
HAD BEEN ROBBED.
A gentleman called at the Governor's
ollico to-day ami stated that he had re?
cently overheard a conversation which
led him to believe that Wilson had be.
robbed. He would not allow his name
to used, but ho is quite a well known
citizen. Ho desired what further in?
formation could be obtained regarding
tho disappearance of Wilson.
The police are making no special ef?
forts to discover the missing man, but |

THE OYSTER DISPUTE
The Governor has written Governor
Lowndes, of Maryland, a letter thai will
probably result in the settlement of the
dispute, between the two States growing
out of the arrest of Maryland oyster
tnen, now hold as prisoners in Accomnc
county. In fact, the trouble was prac?
tically settled by the Attorney Generals
of-Maryland and Virginia at their con?
ference in Washington' one week ago.
They have had some correspondence
Since and the result is that each has
advised his Executive ns to the best
course to be pursued. Governor Tyler
has accepted Mr. Montague's sugges?
tions and made a proposition to Gov-'.j
erpor .Lowndes, which lie will not make J
public at present, it is thought the
Governors will reach an agreement
?whereby troubles can be avoided in the
future. The prisoners will probably be
released and the captured vessels sur?
rendered.
Governor Tyler has been notified that
Washington RIckard, a fugitive from
Justice, wanted in ChrlBflcld, Md., has
been apprehended In Accomac county
and Is being held awaiting the action of
the Maryland authorities.

NufTolk Sfenmnlilp Eine Again.
Newport News, Va., April 8.?Young
Wado Blick, who was rendered uncon?
scious at the Philadelphia Hotel yes?
terday morning by gas asphyxiation,
died this morning at 7 o'clock, and the
remains will be sent to his home in
Dinwiddie county this afternoon for in?
terment.
Subsequent developments make it
doubtful whether or not young Blick
actually committed suicide. In fact,
the attending physicians ami Coroner
Gary are of the opinion that the young
man was asphyxiated through his ig?
norance of gas and workings of the gas
fixtures. *
Coroner Gary held an Inquest this
morning and the jury's verdict was that
Blick came to his death by gas asphyx?
iation, probably by accident.
CORPORAL ELLINGTON'S CASK.
Mayor Moss to-dny received from tho
Judge Advocate General of the army in
..... ..u.?.i... .? teii.ucu .?> -
ccedlllgs of the court-martial which
tried Corporal W. I. Ellington, of this
city, attached t? Company K, Fourth
United states Immunes, on the charge
of improper conduct towards a superior
olllcer.
Mayor Moss wrote for this record at
the request of Captain C. C. Berkley,
commanding Company K. who Is inter?
ested In securing Islington's pardon,
and desires to review the proceedings
of the trial board.
This afternoon the Mayor mailed the
report to the captain, who will receive
it In about a week.
There are good reasons for believing
that Ellington will receive his pardon
before summer closes.
THE EXPORT TRADE.
Statistics show that of all of the ex?
perts shipped abroad from this country,
one-fortieth, of 2.5 per cent, went out
from Newport News. This Is nothing
short of remarkable when the life of
the port is taken into consideration, yet
the prospect for the next ten years is
much brighter than the past ten years
and phenomenal shipments are looked
for at no distant date.
New York's share of the export com?
merce of the country was In the calen?
dar year 1SS0, 41.1 per cent, and last
year only .37.4 per cent.
The- share of Philadelphia In 1SS9 was
3.S per cent, and in ISilS 4.7 per cent.
That of Baltimore was 7.5 per cent, in
1SS9 and 9.2 per cent, in 1S98.
That of Newport News was .70 of 1
per cent- In ISSi) and 2.5 per cent, in
lMiS.
In other words the diversion of trade
from New York In the last ten years
can bo clearly traced In the gains of the
Southern Atlantic ports.

"THE HUB"

NORFOLK.
THE FAIRNESS OF
"THE HUB'S" METHODS
?has been the cause of "Tl>e Hub's" re?
markable success. The equity of its prin?
ciples will strike you at once. It has its
patrons interests at heart as well as its own.
From start to finish there must be satisfac?
tion with every sale?satisfaction at afiy cost. "The
Hub" stands ready to buy back anything it sells when
you are not entirely pleased with your purchase. All
wool is never used in its commercial sense, but only when
such is the truth. Only the most trustworthy qualities are
bought and everything has to pass the careful scrutiny of
intelligent eyes.
These have been the principles of "The Hub" since it
opened its doors less than four years ago. It is on these
principles that it has built up a trade second to none south
of Baltimore.
Its ability to buy in open market at the very lowest
prices enables it to lead in value-giving. With all these ad?
vantages the people of Norfolk and vicinity have rewarded it
II with their patronage.
"The Hub" has not stopped growing I
