Plans of cunipiiign f r the aar that I is to be waged against the Insurance | Trust by the people of the city of J Newport News arc beginning to lake shape. The Merchants' Association, the Chamber of Commerce, Uie finance committee of the city council ami Um e Meaeawealth's sttoraey are at work, and unless all signs fail the Trnst is going tu learn that while Newport News is not rated as a city of the tirst t |ag| bj insurance circles, it belongs in the first class as h flghtei lor the rights of Its peOffW. It Is iini?ortant that every person in the city who carries a dollar's worth of tire Insurance attend t?? tend tonight's meeting of the Mer? chants' Association. It is proposed to list all of the insurance carried in the city, with the view of makinn an effort to have it placed with some of the big Independent companies n< I affiliated with the Southeastern Tariff Association By attending this meet? ing an insurer may save himself the cost of the ten per cent increase in rates recently announced hy the Trust, and atAthe same time strike a blow fur thcwoiniiiuiiity again, t the Trust. Even if your insurance premiums amount to only a few dollars annual? ly, y u should attend this meeting Every dollar diverted from eiMMMSl leading to the treasuries of tbe com? panies (orming the Trust is a point scored for the city. At present some? thing like fldO.iNHi in being paid out annually hy the people of the city for fire insurance, and practirally all of thi? goes t lb. Trust.

As usual, the Virginian Pilot is a g od obse rver. As a matter of fact there is no popular demand for the retirement of Mr. Jones. The best proof of this, as the Virginian Pilot intimates, la the failure nf certain gentlemen to see that Mr Jones had opposition in a pr'mary this year. II Is well known that s me Inf?lall people outside of the First district, and a few more of less influential ones inside the district, would he more than delighted to bring about the congiessman's retirement And If I there had In en the shadow of a doubt ?s to Mi. .1 ties' strength among his constituents, the i'lsliict llciuoi rntie committee would not have been call? ed upon to declare a nominee tfttfl time without a primer}. It is generally admdtcd that Mr. Jones Is stronger today through < ut his district thCM at any time sUcO the re districting some time ago. Cer? tainly he is stronger in Newport News. This city, lukewarm at best in its filling for the First district congressman when the lower Penin? sula was shifted from the Second l*i the First district, today woe Id >5iv" Mr. Jones a majority over any unit in the district. This,ls so not only because Mr. JoOOl has been constati - ly cn the alert to I ck after the in? terests of Newport News i-t Wash? ington, hut because **e is regarded here as the str ngest man in the Vir-1 ginia congressional delegation. The action of the Kll/.aheth Kiver quarantine hoard hi abolishing State inspection ten vessels entering N r folk firm domestic ports, should gre tly strengthen the position of the delegation fmsa the loetl Chamber id Commerce which % NM to Richmond this week to present a resolution asking Gototnot Mann to abolish State inspection at this port upon all \ es .els entering after being admitted or inspected by the federal station at Cd Point. It has been the ft licy of Use executives In the past to make regulations for Newport News so as keep this |>ott on a fooling with Nor? folk, and it is believed that Governor Mann will not depart from this cus? tom. And the delegati n should be able to prove to the governor that the State inspection if vessels en? tering from foreign ports, within an hour alter they have been inspected st the efficient federal station, is worse than esless.
