t'he University of Virginia football
team in spite of tbeir Georgin experience
still has a hankering after the fatal sport.
In a recent contest with the Columbian
University the latter was defeated in a

be composed of high and strong kickeis,
to say the least .
It appears froj. a recent decision of
the United States court ct appeals at Bt.

The plan of dipt. T. J. Crowder, of
Staunton, to extend to the rural districts
all the municipal facilities for receiving
ancVsending mail, though dependentupon
electricity and somewhat complicated,
seems to be a real* advancement in the

might prove a great benefit to .the conn

Captain Dreyfus, of the French army,
who was sentenced a year or so ago to
imprisonment for life for selling secrets
of the French army to Germany,is either
the victim of one of t lie foulest conspira?

markably persistent in his efforts to se?
cure a release. In any event a great num ?
hp.r-.of fabrications havo been given to
the world in his case.

It now appears that the Chinese

Unlortunately, in this case, the district
burned did not need rebuilding; whereas
tiro llrst fire [was in the end a benefit
rather than disaster, as itf'removed all
further danger from the plnuuc and com?
pelled tho rebuilding of that rait of Lon?
don which had been 'subjected to its rav?
ages. Tho fire originated in a blcck of
buildings lj ing east of Aldersgaie street
and tho flames were fauned by strong
wind and fed by highly iullamm able stocks
of Christmas fancy goods; while the loss
will probably exceed $25,000,000.
Tho bright young man who holds tho
oflice of tax collector for the city con?
cluded a few months ngo that ho w?uld
taach the uewspapers of Roauoke a trick
or two and incidentally put a good round
pile of dollars In his pocaets. "When the
time arrivedjfor him to print tho delin?
quent tax list, he secured b'ds^froru the
eveuing .'and morning papers 'and then
coolly proceeded to have tho list printed
in ah alleged journal entitled the Enlight?
ened Age at about the bare cost of tho
actual labor performed, and cheerfully
put the difference between tho cost of
publishing the list and printing it in his
insido pocket, and gaily patnded the
stteets and talked about the lesson he
bad taught the newspapers of Roanoke.
He announced that the best lawyers in
Hoanoke had advised'him that he was
"all right" and '.for y whiie he' poked
himself in the ribs and wore a smile that
indicated that he was tickling himself all
over. The healthful conilitiou of bis pri?
vate exchequer, the result of his brilliant
coup, together with the pleasant rellec
tion that be had administered >. distress
imi dose to, the newspapers made, him en?
joy life to its full. The young man did
uot stop to consider the interests of the
unfortunate delinquents, as the law plain?
ly directs him to do; but, dazzled ^by the
dollars saved to his pocket and being iu
noruut of the difference between the
moaning of the words ''publish'' and
"print," he had the list printed in the
hot month of Auiiust. The two newspa?
pers of Roanoke. after recovering from
the stunning surprise administered by
the dashiug genius, concluded to make
common cause and endeavor to pull
themselves out of the wilderness. They
employed a lawyer. Result: The city
attoruoy last week advised the young
man that he had better have the tax list
"publlsheu," and tho same was published
in the evening paper of Friday. The City
Council delivers to thu tax collector a
funH amounting to about $-10C to cover
the cost of publishing. If ho can have
tlie list published for less the difference
goes into his pocket. His brilliant, scheme
to print tho list in an alleged 'sheet, that

but ib dashed in tho wronu direction.
THE INFLUENCE OF RELIGION.
As was expected, tho Virginia Raptist
Association, which met hero in Calvary
Church Friday, Is very largely attend?
ed, among those present being many of
the leading members of that denomina?
tion from all parts of the State ami coun?
try. - All seem thoroughly 'interested iu
the work before them, and, at various
meetings hekF during the session, there
has been a degree of earnestness 'mani?
fested highly creditable to the members
ami to the denomination represented.
It is this sincerity ami earnestness of
purpose that has i^iven to the Baptists of
; this country the biuh moral standing
! which tbey have enjoyed, and has tleserv
, edly earned for them the respect ol all
persons with whom they have come in
contact. One might "?eil ask, in view of
What they have done and are doing for
the moral welfare of the communities in
which they are established, what would
become'of this country if it were not for
the Baptists and similar denominations.
Wherever thty have churches and Sun?
day schools, there will invariably be
found a law abiding communiy.
Without In any sense attempting to dis?
parage ot her denominations, it might well
be said that the members of this sect are
always foremost in all that tends to the
advancement of morality jand^ever ready
to promote tlie cause of true Chrstian ad?
vancement. Their institutions arc located
all over ttie laud and in schemes ol benev?
olence and for promoting the well-bcinc
1 of society they are second to no denomi?
nation in t he country.
They have their seminaries and col?
leges, I Heir orphanages and hospitals,
their retreats for the aged and the in?
firm, and, in short, buildings everywhere
for those in need of assistance nnd sup
port, show ing that they are lovers of their
feliow men not only in theory but in
practice, and aro always ready to teach
by precepl and example the xreat. and
glorious doctrines of love and charity
everywhere enjoined in the Scriptures as
a guide to tin; social and moral well
being of man.
In every clearing in the wilderness
which has marked tho progress of civili?
zation in the United Slates their teachers
and their preachers can be found, and
whether around the lighted pine knots'of
the cabins or under tho glare of the elec?
tric light nnd brilliant, gas jets of a luxu
riions civilization, they are always ready
to proclaim the blessings of the true re?
ligion or sing praises lo the Giver of all
good and precious u'ifts. They realizo tho
fact that the I ruths of the gospel are not
confined to any one man or one set of
men; hut are alike in their application to
all classes, colors and conditions.
With such a creed and such ardent ad?
vocates the growth nnd strength of tho
denomination is niyt surprising, hut

are few; but their spiritual needs nre
many, and it is here that '.they give evi?
dence of their inherent power nnd capa?
Like other denominations from which
they differ somewhat in forms and cere?
monies, their doctrines are peculiarly ap?
plicable to the spiritual [cravings of the
American people, and in this fact aloue
consist* the secret of their advancement
and progress, as well as their influence
anil power upon the minds of the mnsses.
A study of the personnel of the members
of the Associstion now assembled here
will at once convluce the thinking man
of their capabilities for the work to which
their lives and energies 'are devoted and
of their enthusiasm for the cause in
which they are enlisted.
It is from such assemb'ages as these
that a true estimnte of the character of
the American people can be obtained,
rather thau from a mere political gather?
ing, where ambition and greed for oflice
are the essential features. It is here that
the earnestness of purpose and benesty
of the American character is gained, as
well as of that religious spirit which is
the mainspring of American success.
The motives that animate the spiritual
life of a people are, after all, the sources
from which their best impulses arise,
and as long ns they are pure and unsul?
lied, the future^of that peoule is secure.
Even when that religion is founded upon
error, it is a powerful factor in determin?
ing national character, as is shown in the
records of those countries that have
passed away; but where "people are ani
I mated by the living truths of Christian?
ity the power for good is so strong that
j nothing can remove it.
It Is this truth which is such a vital
! force in the Christian religion of to-day.
j and which gives to its professors the en
' ergy and strength which characterized all
I their c(Torts for the .promotion cf good
I and the eradication of evil. It is the
j power of this trot1*, that makes the delib

BERRY GASE CONTINUED.
Judge Paul Sustains Demurrers to
a Number of Counts.
Lyuchburg Newa: Judge Johu Paul, iu
the Uuited Suites district 'couit, yester?
day morutng, rendered his opinion in (lie
demurrer to the lndictineuts against
Messrs. T. I). Berry and Chas. L. Mosby,
who are chaiired wit h violating tho fede?
ral banking laws in connection with tho
now defunct First Nniioual Bank of Bed
font City. Counsel for the accused de?
murred to the indictments on numerous
grounds, and the question was argued at,
lengtli by the attorneys for bath sides.
Judge Paul took the matter under con?
sideration, statiug that he would deliver
an opinion ?t the opening *ol court yes?
terday morntug. His cpinion was of
some length and cous'dered tho contev.
tiou of counsel for defense and the attor?
ney for the government. It sustaiued tho
demurrer as to twenty-six counts of tho
indictments, nud overruled it as to tho
other twenty-six different roports.
The indictments charged that the de
foudnuts, Beny and Mosby, violated the
law br making false entries on the bank's
reports to the comptroller in twenty-six
different instances, that is to say, in
twenty-six different reports.
Tho charge in twenty-six counts of the
indictment is that these false entries
were joint acts or Berry and Mosby, and
that they perpetrated tho frauds "jointly,
lu the other twenty-six counts of the io
dictmeot Mosby, the cashier, is charged
with making the false entries^in the re?
ports, and Berry is charged with aiding
and abetting him therein. There were a
large number of grounds of demurrer
urged, but the court overrule/: them all
except that urged on the ground that the
twenty-six counts of the indictment.,
i charging Mosby with having made the
: false entiles, and Berry with having
j aided and nbetted him therein, do not
'aver that the aiding and abetting of
Mosby by Berry was done with tho in?
tent, on the part of Berry, to injure, de?
fraud nnd deceive.
Upon the reading of the decision by tho
judge, A. J. Montague, 'attorney for the
United States, stated to the court that
out of abundant caution the government
de.-ired to bring the case ''efore the grand
jury a?tain, and therefore asked that the
case be continued. To this motion the
attorneys for the defense made no objec?
tion and the continuance of the case was
I thereupon ordered by the court.
Messrs. Berry and Mosby were each
I admitted to bail in the sum of ??.0(U,

It is understood th it the United Stares
attorney will bring the matter before the
grand jury for indictment upon the
counts held ^sufficient, at Harrisonburg,
on the 7th of December, 1X<7, and there
move that such indictment there found
lie removed to Lynchborg, and here "con
si lidnted with the indictment already
