New Record for Coal Shipments
Established Last Week.
OVER HUNDRED THOUSAND TONS
Conservative Estimate Places Total
Shipments For May at 330,000
Tons?German Steamer Louise
Here For Cargo?Marine Notes.
All weekly records in coal ship?
ments at this port were smashed
during the week ending yesterday
with a total output, in round llgnros,
oi 100,11011, which carried Ihe total
amount of ''black diamonds" dump?
ed on vessels' here this mouth slight?
ly past the 300,00(1 mark.
It- was slated at Hie coal piers yes?
terday afternoon Hint the daily rec?
ord of 22,007 t?n.?, made on April
3D, lila year, would he smashed yes?
terday, but as the record of Ihe out?
put yesterday will not be completed
until this morning it was Impossible
to ascertain whether or not a now
daily record was .established.
Up lo noon yesterday nearly 12,
0(i() tons of coal hail been dumped in
to vessels ami the rush at the piers
continued throughout the afternoon
and last night so it is very likely
thai the daily record was broken.
There is now Hut little doubt, hut
that a new monthly record in coal
shipments will be established this
month as already 300,000 tons of
"black diamonds" have been dumped
and there yet remains live days III
the month in which shipments can
be made. The largest single monthly
shipment In the port's history was
made In May. 1905, when 310,097 tons
were shipped.
Conservative estimates pinto the
total shipments for the month at
330,000 tons, while some claim that
il will be nearly .100,000 tons.
For the pasl four months Ihe coal
shipments have been unusually large
and from present indications this
will be the banner year in the his?
tory of Newport News for the out?
put of coal.

Shipbuilders Easily Walked Over
Grittenden Boys.
E TEAM IN EXCELLENT TRIM
Played Gilt-Edged Ball, With First
Baseman Davis on the Slab?Foley
Scored Only Two Runs For the
Visitors. j
In a seven session iravesly on the
National game, the Shipbuilder's ad
mhii.-lered a drubbing to a hunch of
ball players from Crittendeh, a small
village located across .lames river, at.
the Casino Park yesterday afternoon
to the strains of 21 to 2. As one of
the six hundred enthusiastic fanatics
in attendance expressed il. the match
was "a regular circus." in which tin'
visitors did the clown act and the
locals the clever acting.
The most amusing part of Ihe en?
tire game was that Robert Foley a
Shipbuilder, who "tilled in" fur the
visitors- team scored both of their
tallies for them.
The Shipbuilders played by far
the best game they have put up Ibis
season. Davis was seen on Ihe slab
for the lit si dime and Ik; had the
visitors guessing all ihe time. Car
michnel, the new backstop, did goo.l
work and all of the Hehlers played
excellent ball. The feature of the
game, however, was a brilliant one
handed stop of a hot liner by .lohn
O'llara.
The match was played for the
bencllt of "Washington Square" and
ihe'.Merchants' Association realized a
handsome sum from il. The local
players gave their services free and
the Crittenden player.-, would accept
only Iheir actual expenses.
The game was proceeded' by a
street parade of the two teams in
carriages, headed by the Old Do?
minion hand.
