' The plans for the .syndicate include the laying ont of an entire town for permanent habitation ail the year round. Local People Interested. Grand View is located about three miles up the beach from Buckroc Reach, in the direction of Back Rive.-, on what is known as the Paul estate. Some time ago it was purchased by several well known Hampton people, who have now entered the new syndi ?cate for the developcment of the pro? perty.

Payne, the head of the street railways on thej lower peninsula, acting for himself and certain Baltimore and Philadel? phia capitalists; President George \V. Stevens, of the Chesapeake A Ohio Railway, and the Hampton parties who own Grand View, form the new syndicate. An old hotel taiilding. which has stood since the days when pleasure loving folk from Richmond drove down In carriages to enjoy the bay brcczes at Grand View, adorns the sire of the new resort. It is understood, however, that in the near future work will tie begun on a new hotel and pa % IRon.

The letters have crested In? tense feeling In the Senate and It is. (not unlikely that they will oreclpl t?te a conference of Republican mem i bets.

He declared thst Senator Stewart, from the question he asked in the debate appeared to be under a misapprehen? sion of the duties of the president of the Cuffed States In connection with the irttiv and nary. Ha quoted the law. as he understood It. and denied that he wss under any obligation to give to the discharged negro soldiers ? or to Colonel Stewart any court of Is- . qniry.
