It Is the Intention of Chairman Ding

inclined to think that they have Lien
unfairly treated. As It 1? distinctly
a war measure. In which they uro ex
pected to acquiesce without opposition

suited in its preparation. The Dem?
ocrats h?ve already decided to offer an

.V <>. (lots the Contract for Supplying
VchhcIs lo These Win em.
It was learned yesterday morn?
ing that the Chesapeake and
Ohio railway company has contracted
with the government to fupply the
United States war vessels with coal.
Vdvices received from ItiehmonJ would
indicate that the Ch ssapcake and Ohio
will coal the cnih'2 licet, as the v -s.-iis
to 01; coal-id in James River and
Hampton Una Is. and colliers are to be
loaded at the coal piers.
The coal lh.it will be delivered to the
naval vessels is the desirable New
itiver steam coal from the mountains
f West Virginia, tin same kind of coal
that the vessels have been ULdng for
number of years.
When Mr. C. R. Orenlt, president of
the Chesapeake and Ohio Coal Agency
mpany, left Newport News the early
part of last week for Washington, he
remarked that be was going to con
tract witli the government to supply
the navy with coal, and he has been

?oilier plying between Newport New
md Now England ports, bad boon pur
?based by the government for conver
don into an auxiliary cruiser, and that
me had been ordered to the Boston
navy yard to be fitted out. The report
was erronoiioH. The Shawmut took
in a cargo of coal here yesterday, and
illIIoil for P.oston on one of hor regu?
lar trips.
However, 11 is a fact that the gov?
ernment has been negotiating for her,
lind she will probably pass Into the
hands of the government at the end
of her present trip.
In speaking of the new passenger
steamers for the Old Dominion line, the
Marine Journal says:
"The Delaware River Iron Ship nnd
Engine Building Company huve sign
d a contract to build two steamships
lor the Old Dominion line of tills port.
The new ships will be practically du?
plicates of the Princess Anne, 124 feet
In length over all, 304 feet on the water
line. 42 feet beam, 27 feet depth of hold.
These ships will be constructed accord
ing to the most npproved standards of
modern shipbuilding and cost altogeth
nenrly three-quarters of a million
dollars. They.are to take the place of
the Yorktown. which was recently sold
to the United States government, and
the Roanoke, sold to Pacific toast par
ties a few months ago. The material
for these ships has already been or?
dered and their shipyard numbers will
be 200 and 300."
The steamer Old Point Comfort, of
the Cape Charles route, which lots
been on the railway at Norfolk, has re?
turned to duty, relieving the chartered
steamer Plymouth.
Mr. W. A. Barrett, of the Willoughby
Splt Railway, Is in Philadelphia ne?
gotiating for a steamer to take th'
place of the Granite City ferry steam
doing duty between the railway
wharf and Old Point Comfort. It Is
expected that the substitute steamer
will be put on next week, when the
Granite City will be sent away for
xlenslve repairs.
