FISH AND OYSTER NOTES
Fish in Petersburg are sold at auc
tion to the highest bidder.
15,000 cases of herring roe (a grade
of caviar) were packed this spring on
the Potomac. It is agrowing industry.
Most of it was shipped to Richmond.
A little fifteen-foot whale, weighing
about a ton, got in shallow water at
Virginia Beach last week and was haul
ed ashore by some young men who las
soed its tail. Sunday, many people
went down from Norfolk to see the
youthful navigator which had gotten
stranded. Those who found the whale
charged ten cents to see it. The own
ers have embalmed the big fish and
have filed an application for a conces
sion at the Jamestown Exposition by
which they may place it on exhibition
on the War Path.
Several friends accompanying the
editor of this paper had a few days'
sport last week mountain trout fishing
in the wilds of Rockingham county.
The best catch in one day was 202,
about fifty to the man. Some moun
taineers had previously caught as high
as eighty apiece a day. During the
past five years the mountain streams
of Virginia and West Virginia have
become infested with bass and trout
fishers, so that the stock has greatly
depleted in numbers as well as in size.
Time was when the streams about
Rawley Springs would produce a hun
dred a day of ten inch trout to the man,
but it is not so now, and that section
is about the best trout ground left in
The conditions are such as to the crab
industry in our State that our Board of
Fisherieswill recommend some remedial
legislation. In order to be fully informed
on the subject our chairman, W. Mc
Donald Lee, in the police boat "Acco
mac,'' made a tour along Tangier Sound,
landingat Crisfield to make an investiga
tion of the problem from the Maryland
view point. The crab business opened
properly on May 15th. The prospects
for a good catch seems sure. They run
the hard crabs all winter, but now the
| sof t shells are coming in. Mr. Lee paid
his respects to the Maryland Shell Fish
Commission, which wascreated by the
recent legislature. The Committee was
there surveying, putting down buoys and
plotting the oyster grounds. There were
various opinions expressed as to crab
dredging as Mr. Lee interviewed the
prominent packers. The problem will
still be studied by the State Board
of Fisheries and reasonablc recommen
dations will be made to the next

At Harrisburg, Illinois. (we spell the

fined $1,000 and costs for pushing a

on the same charge.
By a vote of 5 to 3 the State Board
of Education, after a spirited contro

this result clearly foreshadows the pas
sing of Librarian John P. Kennedy at
the first meeting of the newly consti

A majority of the Senate Committee
on Military Affairs that has been con
ducting the Brownsville exarnination
have declared that the evidence sustains
the President in his action and con
clusively establishes the fact that the
town was shot up by the negro soldiers.
Senator Foraker, however, does not
take this view, but wants the investi
gation continued, and insists that the
committee go in person to the scene of
of the shooting.
Hon. George Mason, of Colonial Beach,
will speak at Heathsville Monday, June
10th (courtday), in the interest of his
candidacy for the House of Delegates.
Says the N. N. News: "No voter
has the right to complain, now that
the 5th of May has passed, because he
has disfranchised himself by not pre
paying his poll tax. Voting is a privi
lege, not a right. That the ignorant,
or the vicious, or even the indifferent,
should have the same right to partici
pate in affairs of State or voice a wish
in matters political along with those
who keep a keen eye on public affairs
is unreasonable and unjust."
Pursuant to a joint resolution of the
Democratic Committees of Lancaster
and Richmond counties, notice is hereby
given that a primary election will be
held in said counties on Saturday, July
27th, 1907, between sunrise and sunset
of that day, for the purpose of nominat
ing a Democratic candidate for the
House of Delegates from said counties.
All Democrats who desire to becom*
candidates for said nomination are here?
by required to give notice thereof, ir
writing, to each the undersigned countj
chairmen at least thirty days befort
the date fixed for said primary election.

Eveninjc. ? j'
A very enthusiastic medical meeting
?pi held at the llaguo Thursday of
last week. It was considered by most <
of those present to be the best session
ever held of the Northern Neck Medical
Association and not one in attendance
failed to derive considerable benefit
from the papers that were read, thedis
cussions which followed and cases of
interest that were reported.
Papers were prepared and read by
Drs. Walker, Lyell andChinn on diseases
of special importance to the medical
profession, which were freely discussed
by other members of the profession in
The Association was honored with the
presence of Dr. Bessey, of Toledo, O.,
who added considerable to the interest
of the meeting.
Eulogies of Drs. Fairfax and Eubank
were delivered by Drs. Walker and

JAMESTOWN EXPOSITION NOTES.
A writer in the Northern Neck News
says that ladies from Washington in
quest of a midget found her near Kin
sale. It proved to be Gertie Thompson,
8 years old, part Indian and part negro,
about two feet tall and weighing fif teen
pounds. She will be on exhibition at
Negroes of Kings Creek, Md.. are
terror-stricken, claiming the devil paid
them a flying visit one night recently.
An airship on its way to the James?
town Exposition caused the uproar.
When the airship was first sighted,
some distance away, all eyes were
turned upward in astonishment. As
the machine drew near andthemechan
ism of the ship, which was making
considerable noise, could be heard, the
population went wild. The machine
was flying low, just clearing the huts,
trees and telegraph poles, and the con
versation of its occupants was plainly
audible to the few who had sufficient
courage to stand their ground or were
too frightened to run. The machine
was adorned with two large red lights
and made a spectacular appearance.
Negroes took refuge in hay-stacks,
woods, cornhouses, under beds and in
attics, positive that the monstrous
affair was nothing less than the devil.
The next day they held long rcligious
meetings. Pocker and crapgames have
been eliminated and Kings Creek is now
the most orderly town on the Eastern
Shore. The machine arrived safely at
the Exposition grounds, and Saturday
gave flying cxhibitions, going as far as
Newport News and retuming.

ECHOES OF THE GREAT CONVENTION.
The Baptist Convention of North
America, composed of Baptist Conven
tions north and south and delegates rep
resenting the negro Baptist National
Convention, with Mexican and Canadian
Baptists also in attendance, adjoumed
at Jamestown Exposition Thursday
night last. The Convention is declared
to have been a great success. Notable
speeches were made by the four leading
negro delegates in attendance, which
received the plaudits of Southern dele?
gates in particular. It was the first
time in the history of the South that
white Baptists had met with negroes,
but there was not the least ill feeling,
and the Convention was oneof brdtherly
love and good fellowship. Officers were
elected as follows:
President?A. H. Strong, of New
First Vice-President?J. Taylor Elly
son, Lieutenant-Govenor of Virginia.
Second Vice-President?Charles E.
Hughes, Governor of New York.
Third Vice-President?A. L. Crimmon,
Recording secretary?Thomas D. Os
Assistant Secretary ?J. S. Dickerson,
Corresponding Sec'y ? S. D. Meeser.
Treasurer?M. E. Thresher, Ohio.
One of the speculator features of the
convention was the demonstration that
followed the presentation by a delegate
from the conference of South Carolina
to the delegate from Maine of a his
tory of the beginning of the Baptist
church in America. Kittery, Maine,
was referred to as the fountain of the
Baptist religion, and the bookcontained
much of interest about the origin of the
church at that place. It was accepted
by Dr. A. B. Lorimer, of Bangor, as
the joining link between the North and
the South, and when the incident had
closed President Stephens suggested
that the salute be given. Every dele?
gate and woman in the big hall arose
waved their handkerchiefs and joined
in singing, "Blest Be the Tie That
Binds." Just prior to this presentation
the delegate from Canada requested the
delegates to visit the Canadian Building
at the close of the session and sing
"God Save the King," underthe Union
Jack. The request met the approval
of the convention. Among the most
important resolutions adopted today was
one indorsing the movement to erect a
Baptist theological seminary in Russia
and the effort to raise $100,000 with
which to do the work.
Eight hundred women visiting the
Exposition, with the delegates to the
Baptist convention of North America,
met behind closed doors in the Auditor
ium, the session being the first and only
one held by the women in connection
with the national assembly. The body
was called to order by Miss Fannie
Heck, of Atlanta. president of the
Woman's Missionary Union of the
Southern Baptist Convention, who
presided throughout the day. The ad
dress of welcome was made by Mrs.
George A. Schmeltz, of Hampton, Va.,
on behalf of the local Baptists, and by
Mrs. J. A. Wheeler, of Tennessee, on
behalf of the Baptist women of the
President Tucker, of the Exposition
