EtouIiic Concert nt ITloudecllo.
Our guests from Delaware put in the
busiest day of their stay here yesterday,
and the local entertainment committee
kept them on the jump in order to
make schedule time.
At 10 a. m. the party boarded street
cars at the Monticello Hotel and went
' to the Ocean View depot, where they
boarded a special train for Willoughby
The truck fields traversed were the
best they had ye't seen hero and elicited
much interest and inquiry into the
character of the fertile soils of this sec?
tion and their products.
On arrival at Old Point Comfort a
special car was procured and the party
was taken at once to the nlant of the
Newport News Ship-building and Dry
Here, after a brief wait, admission
was granted and several gentlemen
from Hie ofllce force, who were well
versed in nil that pertains to this mam?
moth establishment, were assigned to
conduct the visitors through the yards
The gigantic crane, the largest in
America, attracted much attention, but
the center of interest seemed to be the
now battleships Kentucky and ICear
sarge, lying there apparently ready tor
their trial trips.
Another sight of unusual interest was
the mnmmotli new dry-dock being con?
structed. The great excavation appears
to be about two-thirds completed and.
as the work progresses, it is protected
by a coffer-dam. A large force of men
Is at work and a hoisting engine, hand?
ling enormous scoops, Is fast eating
away a big hole into terra fl' ina,
AT SOLDIERS* HOME.
The visitors broke up into various
groups on leaving the ship-yard. Some
visited the business section of Newport
News, while others went to the Soldiers'
Home. There are a number of old
Delaware citizens now living at tin
Home, and the visit of the Delaware
legislators was a rare treat to those old
veterans- Some of them accompanied
their friends back as far as Old Point.
AT FORTRESS MONROE.
About i p. m. the party reached For?
tress Monroe and spent an hour or two
in a tour around the grounds, looking
at the guns, barracks and other fea?
tures of Interest.
OlT the sea wall firing practice was
in progress at a target anchored seven
miles out. The party obtained an ex?
cellent position to see this on the outer
parapet and spent some time watching
As the party was crossing the bridge
over the moat going toward the firing
squad, the excited gestures of the sol?
diers alarmed the visitors, and they be?
gan to think that there was danger
from the gun in front of them. (It was
aimed high over their heads.) Then
followed some very energetic move?
ments ns they got over the bridge, but
ere they did the gun roared nnd a big
shot whistled over their heads at the
target seven miles out at sea.
At 5 p. m- the Temple Quartette and
a few of the guests left Old Point for
Norfolk, but the main body left nt C
p. m. and found their special train
awaiting them at Ocean View, nnd Mr.
Savage, of the railway at the Norfolk
depot, ready to greet them on their re?
The next thing on the program was
dinner at the Monticello, followed by a
concert in the lobby between 7:30 and
S:20 p. m. by the Temple Male Quar?
tette, of "Wilmington, Del. A large
number of guests of the house and citi?
zens had assembled and greatly en
Joyed the entertainment furnished by
these four singers.
Mr. Bartlett also favored the com?
pany with his fine selection, "The Bat?
tle of Manila Bay." A large number
of Norfolk ladies and gentlemen assem?
bled tn enjoy tili? pypninp'q t i-.vi t_.
At a meeting of the visitors held last
night a committee drafted the following
resolutions of thanks to the citizens of
Norfolk, the members of the reception
committee and to the several generous
citizens who tendered the use of their
steamers, railways, etc.:
"The members of the Legislature of
Delaware, having enjoyed the hospital?
ity of the citizens of Norfolk during
their visit to the city, desire to express
their appreciation of the many cour?
tesies shown them, ana only regret
their Inability to more properly express
them at this time. The hearty welcome
of your Mayor, C. Brooks Johnston,
soon after our arrival set us perfectly
