SOME REASONS FOR A THIRTY
FIVE FOOT CHANNEL. ?
"Some of the reaaons why New
11 M Newa, Norfolk and Portsmouth
S>oSM tat*, n channel-way of thirty
live foot depth" are given in an in
terea?ng little folder which has Just
In en" Issued by the Harbor Improve-'
ment Committee of Norfolk, Ports-'
mouth afed Newport News. A dozen
iinci ntrovcrtlble ' hmausos" are given,
and these, supported by a mass of,
statistics and tabulated facts have'
been submitted to the government
< ngine?ring board, from which the re- j
rciWgleartatloti t? congress must come.;
Kverybcdy who knows anything at all
about the great commercial and
strategical importance of the Hamp-1
ton Roads ports recognizes the fact
that we should have thirty-five foot
channels leading to the conlmerclal
wharves, the shipyard and navy yard.1
but few people who have not invest! i
j,etod the situation really know b-jw I
very necessary this improvement Is
and w hat a just claim the Virginia i
doepwsUT ports have upon congress |
for an appropriation.
At this time both Norfolk and New - 1
j-ert Newa, are supposed to have chan?
nels thirty-two feet In depth. As a
matter of fact, however, the channels
hare ailed in until neither belongs
in tbe :birty-two foot class. On this
side. tb<- Middle ('.round bar, the
greatest thorn in the flesh of New?
port News shipping men, Is the prime
cause i.1 trouble. The channel drcdg.d
Mimetime ago through this bar to a I
depth of thirty-two feet at mean low
tide, hu* gradually flllcd until there
is hard y a depth of thirty two?feet
at high tide. This is a source of in-.
convenient?-. and instead of getting
better, the couditun gradually Is be-j
Innung worse .very day As a result
a vessel of extraordinary draft can
come and go from the local harbor
with safety only at high tide, and de?
lay? often occur un mis arc unt
This Ailing of tbe channel. It Is
claimed, is due to the lines chosen for
dredging It is believed that a chel?
ae! dre.1g.-d directly across the bar
not only would cut off a mile or two
<f tbe trip from Chesapeake Bay to
S' w|?.rt News, but would be. prac
tlrally. proof against the mud which
la thrown oot by Nans^mona river.

SOMETHING WRONG WITH OUR
CRIMINAL PROCEDURE.
There Is something radically wrong
with the methods of procedure in our
criminal courts, and the trouble is not
confined exclusively to d'lays. it ?a
hard for a layman to attempt to de
tine just what is wrong er suggest, a
reinedy. hut everybody who reads i.io
newspapers must see that a wrong
exists and a renv if is Bjgs ded.
Only a few diys ago a minderer
In Richmond who should have had a
pciiltentlaiy sentence, at least, went
scot free. He had no unwritten law
or brain-storm pica; ho had shot
down In cold blood a man consider?
ably smaller than he, whom he had
aggrieved and who had struck mm
with his opt it hand. Self-defense was
the excii-e he offered and it was ac?
cented by the Jury.
Yestriday, In Griensboro, X. C,
Banitl Col le, a man who knew that
his own son had been struck down
Just outside of his house by his
brother-in-law and ?l.o allowed the
boy to lay on the ground all night to
be found dead the next morning, was
set Tree. Hiram Ellett, who admitted
striking the fatal hiow and leaving
his injured brother-in-law to die, got
off with five years in the penitentiary.

There lives in Marlboro c >unty, S

name of Has<o>rn Usher. An inter

States government. He kept and had
ready to present sworn records ae ft)

Little Nita's Best
Christmas
By WILLIAM ROSSER COB3K
?
LH
?Copyright)
Nita wti Juki seven years old She
wa* born on a Christmas day, and
this was a Christ?
mas day, too.
Tbia was one
reason wby so
much, so very
much pains was I
taken to make ]
every Christmas
a delightful one
for her.
Never before i
had an much been
done for her. To ;
be sure, sbe was
older thsn she
was a year ago
and could appre?
ciate better what
was done for her. !
Yet somehow ahe
was not nearly so
happy* as she
thought she
should be.
Such a glorious
Christmas tree
stood out in the
wide hall of the
great mansion in
which she lived.
It contained such
a load of presents
for her- almost a roomful she de?
clared to herself, as they were taken
down one by one and opened for her
inspection and admiration.
Nita was an only child, and this
waa another reason why her parents
made much of the day for her sake.
There had been another, but it had
died before Nlta could remember. She
had bren told about her dead baby
brother so often that It seemed to her
that she could recall him and there
were times when she felt he was
looking at her and wanted to be at
her side.
This Christmas day was so long,
somehow. Sbe had but Just run to
Nurse Amy to ask if it were not
luncheon time. Not that she was
hungry, but she had got so tired of
playing by herself. Nursey had said
it was only 11 o'clock, and she had
thought it was almost night.
What were playthings, anyhow* She
had always had them. They couldn't
run around the big grounds and play
with her at hide and seek as she bad
teen other children do?as she had
lone with her cousins, when, as sbe
lometlmes did. sbe visited them in
their far away northern home. It was
dreadful cold up there?much colder
than In her own southland, where one
might play outdoors all the year ,
round, but she would be willing to live
there, If only she had playmates like
other children.
Of course everybody waa good.
Papa was good, and mamma was good,
and nursey. too; but they were so
jften busy, and they were grakra up.
too, and couldn't be expected to play
tames with a little girl.
It would be nicer-, she thought, if
papa would remove from the country
to the city. Then sbe might play with
the neighbors' children.
Nita yawned.
"I d be willin' to let "era play with ;
everything I have, and wear my watch ?
lorne. and ride my pony." she said. '
msgnsnlmously.
"I do wonder why they don'? let me
tee mamma?" she asked herself fre
juently "Here its been about a week
lince I've seen her. and every time j
I start upstairs to her room, governess. ,
ir nurse, or the doctor push me back '
?Ith a Yon rcusn't diaturb mamma,
tor she's sick.' As If I'd disturb my j
lear. dear mamma for anything in all
this world.
"I b'lieve I don't csre for toys eny i
nore. 1 guess I'm getttn' too old for :|
hem I b'lieve I'll tell papa to give
?nine awsy to some poor children that
ion't hsve any " |
Here she strode to a mirror, before
rhich she stood and stretched herself
to her full little seven yesr height
1 reckon I'll have to grow a heep
nore before I'm s woman." she aigheVt
'but. anyway. I'm gettln" tired of
"hrlsmase* and birthdays and toys. If
i Just did havs somethin' to am nee ,
ae-eossebody to play with that leal '
?lean grown up."
And then this blase child of seven '
itretcbed he'self owt upon the door [ \
ind soon was fast asleep
When she awoke Nurse Amy was
itandlng beside her.
"I reckons yer marseer wants ter
see yer. honey," she said, with a smile
Without questioning, without reply
eg. the little gtrt sprang to her feet
tad falrty flew eg tbs wroed oaken
fairway
"O msmma." ehe tried, as a
?ought to throw herself reto that par |
?at's arme.
But gwatle hands restrsjaed her aad
"A
i brother, ton It la my brother that
seat to heaven?"
"Not that ssM. deer, hut soother
lent from heaven "
"Civs htm my preeeats. mother??B
?f them He's merits aB of tb*m and
?ore. too May I boM hem. mamma*"
And Nita's heart overflowed arwh
U?v when this isgatat wmm granted
