PLANS FOR CAMPAIGN AGAINST I
INSURANCE TRUST.
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

for fire insurance, and practirally all
of thi? goes t lb. Trust. The suli

Mr .lines, there in a feeling among

First elistrlct that It la tBJM <o give

If such feeling exists, there are no
supeiflcial indications of it No popu?
lar ileniand for Mr. Jones' retire?
ment Is noticeable to the outsider,
n r to the shrewdest political obser?
vers on the Inside, his possible- oppo?

V rglnian Pilot.
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?

here as the str ngest man in the Vir-1
ginia congressional delegation.
The action of the Kll/.aheth Kiver

this week to present a resolution
asking Gototnot Mann to abolish

Use executives In the past to make

be able to prove to the governor that

worse than esless.

Hampton,

$75 toward the road fund. The road
was built, the witness said, especially
for the benefit of the people living
in the territory proposed to be an?
nexed.
Questioned hy Mr. Massle. the wit?
ness said the new Kecoughtati road
was not built up to the limits of the
city of Newport News because of the
annexation talk, the county not desir?
ing to improve a street that might
he taken into the city. Witness did
not remember any requests for Im?
provements in this section that had
-lot beeu complied wilh except that
ot Dr. Ruxtou fur a road. He did not
' L'elieve there was any necessity fori
I uiiiexation on the part of the city of|
' Newport News.

Assessor M. A. Booker.
M. A. Booker, assessor of P.lizabctl
City county, lestitied that he has not I
yet completed the assessment for the)
year 1818, but that the average as
sessim nt of unimproved land per acre|
in the county was $2S.:to in 1881
Witness said J. 1). Lake's |
tract of ten acres near New?
port News is assessed at $1401
an acre, anu that the average assess?
ed valuation of lots in ivyton andl
Powell Heights. including marsh]
lands, is about ,100. The witness un
Ideretood that nearly hau of the land]
in the county had been laid off
town lots, and that the acreage of the
? n.iiity exclusive of the lots is about
1X8,888. On cross-examination the
witness said the Lake property was
seoeeoed at $140 and that the property
a I joining it was assessed at $1.200,
because it is laid off in lots.
This concluded the testimony forj
the defense. It was agreed that re-|
huttal evidence will be heard tomor?
row morning between 9 and 101
o'clock, and that the argument will)
begin at 10 o'clock.
Court adjourned at 7:20 o'clock.
Making Hard Fight.
I In this ease Klizabe.h City coun?
ty is making a much harder fighv
ihan it did in the proceedings recent
iv tried at Warwick. Counsel and of
ticials of the county do not seem to |
In- worried a great deal about the ter?
ritory lying between Salter's creek
and tha present limits of Newport
News, bin they are battling most
strenuously against losing the terri?
tory east of the creek.
