And it is the duty of the city council to see to it thut advantage is taken ol the opportunity gi\eit for a hearing. LOCAL SHIPPING MEN HAVE LEGITIMATE COMPLAINT. Governor Swan son will be called up? on tomorrow to pass upon u question in which the shipping agents and nu r chants of Newport .News are consid? erably Interested. At the request ol local shipping men, lhe governor Is going to decide whether or not res sola coming to this port for bunker coal only, and which have passed the federal quarantine inspection at Oiu Point, shall be subjected to a State Inspection here. A very remarkable sit nation has caused this mailer to be brought to the governor's attention. I^st winter the Norfolk quarantine commissioners decided that such vessels as referred lo above should not bo subjected to the Stale inspection at Norfolk. As ft result, steamers entering Hampton Head . Ilnd a Virginia port on one side requiring an Inspection, and a Virgi nit port on the oilier side not requir? ing an Inspection. Naturally this Is regarded by shipowners, as well as hy everyone else who hears of it, as i very unusual state of affairs, and as naturally ihe port requiring the in? spection suffers. Shipowners of course prefer to send their vessels to Ihe place at which they will he free from the delay and expense of an in? spection. This is not a local matter, it is an affair of the State, and if an inspec? tion is necessary here, it is necessary it Njffolk. The local people have a legitimate ground for complaint, ami If the governor does not dapm it Wise lo change the regulaiions Vxisting for thi^ |K>rt. thin 'there should be a i hange at Norfolk. Probably this would be a proper time for the State authorities to go into the quarantine question fully, with ihe idea of making extraordinary if forms. The present system seems to be a very poor one. Why should separate systems, neither of which is reeognize?! as efficient by the federal authorities, lie maintained at Norfolk and Newport News, isith of Which are Hampton Roads portal Why should the Stale not put a quarantine sbip at the mouth of Hampton Roads and there maintain a quarantine station for both Newport News and Norton? THE DAILY PRESS DID NOT "FALL INTO ERROR." In discussing the quest ion of wheth? er the school board can reconsider iis action In the case of Prof. Tlnsiey. Mr. Allan D. Jones, counsel for Mr. Tinsley. lako^i occasion to say that The Ihiily Press editorially 'tfalls Into the error" of some nther people who have contended thai parliamentary linage precludes the possibility Of reconsideration of ihia matter by the ? r.ist'i s Any one who read the editorial re? ferred to by Mr. Jones knows that ?here was no "failing into error." Dally Press did not pretend to pass n:>on the parliamentary question, this is a matter to he dealt with h> the hoard in accordance with its rnb-s What the paper did was merely to re cite the set ions of ibe hoard in con nectlon with this case, in support of ihe intimation tbst some of Iks true lees are wbiMmg. ov<-rgrowa chil? dren.

Why should Wall street push up he prices of stocks on the news that he Federal Court of Appeals over ] ?uled Ihe verdict of the court below Imposing on the Standard Oil Com? pany lines aggregating $29,000,000 for iCceptlng from railroads rebates on night shipments? The Standard Oil Company was in the position of any ither individual or corftoration ae used of violating a plainly written statute law. It was convicted ami"] tentenced after fair and lull trial. There is no reason known to i?co ?le of honest habits and ordinary j -ommon sense why this conviction thould have had a terrifying, demo ilizing or depressing effect on any aw abiding interest. There is Just is little reason why the discovery by he up|ier court of some defect or ivlow should suddenly cause a re\i -al of confidence and strengthen he markets. The natural and inevitable concln jion from the course of Wall street n this matter Is that there is pro? found belief among the operalors and raders there and those liest acquaint? ed with the inner secrets of high fln mco that criminality and violation ind disregard of the law by great xirporations and financial organiza? tion are general and Cac-mnchhag This is the one exj>lana'ion n?- car msgine why Indications that the laws ire lo be enforce,! cause panic and lemoralized prices, while the promi.-e ihat criminals may esoni?e punish sient causes cxubcrsnce. strength und increase In prices?Rlchmon.1 N'ews l.oader.
