The speaker of the occasion was the
Rev. Jere Wilherspoon, D. D., of Rich?

"The Protest of 1519." or "Why Called
Protestants?" The address was Indeed
an Intellectual treat to all who had the
privilege of hearing It. A synopsis can
make no adequate impression of the
Dr. Wilherspoon began his address
by saying "that there were some words
the very mention of which suggested
great historical epochs, such as the
words Revolution. Calvantsm, Reform?

the word Protestantism. And we ha ve?
no need to be ashamed of the name.
Its size is Inspiring. In 1S80 Protest?

we fall, Christ will fall, and I'd rather
fall with Christ than to stand with

that he had no purpose to make war
on any church, only to get at the un?
derstanding of the word so used. Then
he gave a complete, but concise, his?
tory of tho movement with all the great
characters connected with it. then
gave us tho three leading principles
for which the original 19 Protestants

PLEASED WITH NORFOLK
MR. JAMES F. NORTON 8PEAKS OF
HIS RECENT VISIT HERE.'
Assistant Chiof Jumps F. Norton, of
the Lowell, Mass.. fire department, who
recently visited Norfolk, has returned
to his home well pleased with his re?
ception nnd entertainment here. In t%
Lowell Sun, of October 8th, Is a columu
Interview given by Mr. Norton to that
Artor paying a handsome compliment
to Chief Ryan and the Norfolk and
Portsmouth lire departments Mr. Nor?
"Aside from fire department matters,
I might say that smooth paving Is
gaining a foothold in southern cities,
particularly In Norfolk, where private
companies are having streets running
through land owned by them, paved
with asphalt. Oyster shells are used in
paving many streets and roads In Nor?
folk. Tho shells are placed on the road
ns a dressing and are ground to a pulp
by tho travel. They make a hard road
and not a dusty one either. When It
rains, the street becomes very muddy,
but U dries very quickly. Many of the
streets nro still paved with the old
round paving blocks, but these are be?
ing gradually replaced with modern
"It may be of interest to Lowell peo?
ple to know that tho portion of St.
Vincent's hospital destroyed by fire is
being rebuilt and the structure when
completed will be a most Imposing one.
It will be considerably larger and the
grounds surrounding it will be more
"When our Lowell company visited
Norfolk, one of the men who assisted
In our entertainment was Andrew
Stevens. Those who know him will be
pleased to learn that he Is now captain
of the police in Norfolk and is very
popular in the department and well
liked by the citizens.
"The signs of progress and growth
are seen on every band. The change
In 29 yours is most marked. In the
present Norfolk there remain but few
evidences of the city of former years.
What was then an extensive coast is
now mudc land on which are erected
some of tho leading business structures
of the city.
"The people are willing to make many
sacrifices to benefit their city and seem
possessed of the proper spirit and en?
terprise that will win success. Some
of them say that should a few northern
capitalists become interested financial?
ly In ventures In their city, the pro?
gress and advancement would be more
rapid. They are already making their
homes In what we call the suburbs, and
new residential sections are building up
"A people so generous nnd kind
hearted deserve success, and their ef?
forts will be rewarded.
"During my visit I saw the various
points of historic Interest nnd made the
trip through Dutch Gap, made famous
by our General Rut lor.
"My trip was a most profitable one
to me. and I enjoyed it immensely."

TWO STATE LEAGUES
LATEST PROPOSITION THAT STAR?
TLES THE BASEBALL UNIVERSE.
Thursday s "Dally Tress," of Newport
Instead of a purelv Virginia League,
it is snld that steps are being taken now
to organize for the season of lti'il u base
hall league of eight or ten cities In Vir?
ginia nnd North Carolina.
Notwithstanding the reports circulating
already about the bright outlook for the
Virginia League next ; ? ar. the prospects
.'or a purely Virginia League are not so
encouraging, and It is raid that the man?
agers of Hie more successful teams of
last schsou would prefer to see a Vir?
ginia-North Carolina organization, in?
cluding live Virginia eitles and live cities
In the Old North State.
It can be stated almost positively that
next season the league magnates will not
aim to pick all of the cities In one section
with a view of keeping down traveling
expenses. There Is not enough rivalry
In the game when this plan Is adopted.
It is reported that In the event a two
Stato league la organized that the live
Virginia clubs will he as follows:
The cities of Raleigh, Wilmington,
Tarhoro, Durham anil several others are
said to be anxious to have clubs In a
league of this kind.

tion, before the opening of the season,
Newport News will be a paying baseball
cltv. With a team representing Newport
News and Hampton, It is believed that
tho attendance nt all of the names here
or at Riverview Park would be very en?
It Is probable that the league magnates
will get together In a few weeks to dis?
cuss plans for the season of lfloi and then
It will be known just how baseball will

"QUISANTE," by Antliony Hope?In
this work Mr. Hope exhibits bis ver?
satility as a writer by entering a field
practically new to him. The hook Is u
narrative or the present social nnd
political life in England, nnd has for
Its hero n man of a low caste, who, by
his eloquence and political ability, suc?
ceeds in gaining an entree into society
nnd a seat in Parliament. He marries
a woman far above him In clns.s and
succeeds in making her miserable by
his lack of breeding in some Instances
and lack of conscience in others. The
book tends to be rather tiresome in
some places, while In others it is full
of vivacity. Mr. Hope, in our opinion,
has not kept up to the standard as set
by the "Prisoner of Zcnda," "Rupert of
llentr.on" and?"I'liruso." NusbaunTsr'
