Emanuel Kaufman, nineteen years
old, has been lost sight o? by his par
cuts, who live in Atlanta, Ga., and the
Norfolk police and detective force has
tech asked to look, out for him, as have
also his relatives In this city.
Some days ago Mr. David Kaufman,
a wealthy Hebrew of Atlanta, went to
New York and took his son, Emanuel,
with him. Tho latter left for home, via
Norfolk Monday night, and should
have arrived there Wednesday after?
noon. His father, who remained In New
York on business, on learning that his
son had not arrived at home, telegraph?
ed and wrote Chief of Police Klzer,
ond put the case in the nands or the
Pinkerton detectives, who rent the
i following telegram to Chief Klzer from
Philadelphia Thursday night:
DESCRIPTION OF YOUNG MAN.
"Chief of Police: Emanuel Kauf?
man, nineteen years old, five feet ten,
I'ght complexion, one hundred twenty
five pounds, blue eyes, Clark brown
hair, regular features, little stoop
ohoulclercd, wears eye glasses without
fiamc, wore light plaid suit, light fe?
dora hat. white band, light tan shoes,
crescent scarf pin, small opal ring, gold
watch, black ribbon fob chain, dark
brown dress suit case and umbrella;
left New York 8 p. m. Monday last, oc?
cupying berth In sleeper for Norfolk,
(.'poke of taking train from there to
Atlanta, Ga., his home. Endeavor to
ascertain If he arrived In Norfolk, and
if still there; If not, where he went.
Missing from home; no criminal charge.
"E. S. GATLOR,
"Superintendent Pinkertons."
Chief Kir.er has sent a detective to
Newport News, Hampton and Old
Point, thinking it possible that Kauf?
man may have gotten off the Cape
Charles boat at the latter place. He
has not arrived In Norfolk so far as
can be ascertained. The wife of Mrs.
Samuel Goldsmith, proprietor of the
Norfolk Trunk Factory, on Church
street, is related to young Kaufman,
ond It was expected that he would stop
over to see his relatives at No. 110
Chapel street. His father telegraphed
Mr. Goldsmith to spare no expense in
locating his son. Mrs. Goldsmith stntes
that the young man had a dangerous
fall in his father's straw hat factory In
Atlanta about six months ago nnd
sometimes loses the power of speech.
It Is thought probable that his mind
has become affected because of this in?
jury. He Is related to the most prom?
inent Hebrews of Atlnnta, and Is re?
garded as an exceptionally bright
young man. Tho detectives are doing
their utmost to locate him.

Innngnrated -BrlglitProMpecia.
After being closed for the past four
weeks the Chamberlin Hotel at Old
Point Comfort again opened Its doors
to the public last night. The occasion
was celebrated by a grand, re-openlng
ball that attracted many society people
from Richmond. Newport NewB, Hamp?
ton, Portsmouth, Norfolk and other
Virginia cities, as well as from Wash?
ington, D. C, .Baltimore, New York,
Philadelphia and other Kastern points.
The event was of peculiar importance
to Old Point, and 'its patrons, as the
ball last night was the nrst social func?
tion since the outbreak of yellow fever
at Soldiers' Home.
The beautiful building was in a splc
and-span condition, as a force of work?
men has been busy for we.eks making
repairs and alterations and cleaning up.
EVENING CONCERT.
From 6:30 to 8 p. m. a concert was
given in front of the hotel by tho
Fourth United States Artillery Band,
A. Bugllone, leader, and the following
choice program was rendered: 1.
March, Peace Forever, La Calle; 2.
Overture, Poet and Peasant, Suppe; 3.
Selection, The Geisha, Jones; 4. Hun?
garian Fantasia, Tobani; 5. Selection,
The Telephone Girl, Kerker; 6. Waltz,
Braganza, Godfrey.
THE BALL.
The ball began at 9 o'clock. There
were present about two hundred society
people from Norfolk and three or four
hundred from other points mentioned.
There were also present Col. Guenther,
commandant at Fort Monroe; .Col. and
Mrs. Marye. Capt- Strong, with his wife
and niece; Capt. Townsley, Lieut. Gal?
lup and many other officers from the
fort.
A fine dance program had been ar?
ranged and delightful music was fur?
nished by the orchestra from the Post
Band. Dancing continued until 12
o'clock, at which hour "Home, Sweet
Home" from tho orchestra was the
signal for donning wraps nnd leaving
the hotel. A special steamer was used
1 by the Norfolk and Portsmouth people
who attended. The ball was a very
successful event, and fittingly marks
the re-openlng of the Chamberlin.
CHANGES INAUGURATED.
The Chamberlin has re-opened on the
European plan. Many telegrams and
letters are being received engaging
rooms and the prospects are that the
hotel will soon be well filled with
guests.

the fraternal features of the order,
paying a high compliment to the many
noble acts of charity It had performed
since its first introduction in this city,

Past Supreme Archon C. E. Outten
spoke of the enlarged field of usefulness

rapid growth in other States, and said

Virginia to renewed diligence. In clos?
ing he paid a beautiful tribute to the
late Past Archon, C. J. Thompson, of
Friendship Conclave, who was killed at
the navy yard in Portsmouth Thurs?
day.

BLACKBALLED.
Our application for membership '.n the
Master Plumbers' Association having
been blackballed without cause, and
simply through malice. We desire to state
our case for the information of tho pub?
lic.
The firm of Kelly, Thornton & Williams
Is composed of Messrs. James J. Kelly.
W. X. Thornton and M. A. Williams, all
natives of Norfolk and journeymen
plumbers of long experience.
Mr. Kolly served his apprenticeship of
five years with J. J. Lawler & Co., and
has been In the continuous employ of this
llrm for firtcen years. Mr. Thornton
served his apprenticeship with Mlnter &
Kemp, and has been recogn'zed as a first
class plumber, having been working at
his trade for fifteen years.
Mr. Williams served his time with
Messrs. J. J. Lawler & Co., and has also
been continuously with this firm for
twelve years.
All of these gentlemen have been rec?
ognized as masters of their trade, and
have enjoyed the confidence of their em?
ployers and their patrons during their
long term of service.
As a result of tho recent plumbers'
strike these gentlemen were thrown out
of employment, and resolved to exercise
their privilege as citizens and embarked
In tho plumbing business on their own ac?
count and became a candidate for n. share
of public patronage, and announced their
Intention.
The- firm of Kelly, Thornton & Williams
made application to the Master Plumbers'
Association, an organization of plumbing
llrms. In due form, for membership, and
their application was rejected.
Inasmuch as tho action of this associa?
tion is the result of malice and prejudice,
and not because of any lack of capacity
or competency on our part, wo desire that
the public shall be fully Informed as to
the matter, believing that they will not
countenance such nn attempt to prevent
our earning- an honest living In our
chosen trade.
While this action will inconvenience us
on account of tho Influence of our enemies
with dealers In material, wo beg to slate
that we will he able to handle promptly
and efflclcntly all work entrusted to us,
and will compete with them successfully,
both as to prices, material and workman?
ship.
Wo hare now employed s'x first-class
journeymen plumbers and ns many help?
ers, and thanking the public for their
kind patronage already so liberally be?
stowed, we respectfullv solicit a con?
tinuance of their good will and patronage.
