TelraliiciwsttW,
London, Nov. 2—The suspicion which
has arisen over the extraordinary prepa
cations which have been made for war in
the last few days under cover of the
Egyptian crisis, are intended to put
Great Britian in a condition for meet
ing Russia. Certainly no such prepara
tions have been engaged in by Great
Britian since the Crimean war, aud
furthermore they are not called forth by
the Fashoda affair, for France has prac
tically acceeded to all the demands of
England on that score. Captain Bara
tier is now returning from Egypt and
Fashoda with orders that the French
force will withdraw westward to the
fortified posts and within the confines
of Bahr el Ghazal.
The Globe in commenting upon the
telegrams just received from Wei Hai
Wei announcing the readiness of the
British warships for actiou, and the as
semblage of a large fleet at Port Arthur |
says: ''Matters of the gravest impor
tance, especially when taken in con
junction with the extraordinary prepa [
rations for war which has been in prog
ress on both sides of the EDglish chan
nel during the lan ten days, has trans
pired. In the absence of more definite
information it must be surmeed that
Russia is taking advantage of the pres
ent tension between England and
France and has pushed her far eastern
policy to an unbearHble length, by for
cibly taking possession of valuable ter
ritory at Fort New Chang." j
Wei Hai Wai, Nov. 2 —The British
warships here consisting of the first
class battleship. Centurion; the first
cl jss cruiser, Narissus: the second-claes
cruiser, Hermiene; tbe torpedo boat de
stroyers, Whiiiog, Fame, and Handj;
the first-class gunboat, Peacock, cleared
for action and are ready to go to sea at
an hours notice. The first-class battle
ship, Victorious; tbe first class crusier,
Undaunted, at Che Foo, near here, are
coaling to their full capacity. The
greatest secrecy is maintained regard
ing the meaning of the war-like prepa
tions but there is no doubt that impor
tant instructions are expected momen-

is, Nov. 3.—lt is generally accept- j
ed this afternoon that the Spaniards
will not agree to the proposition of the
Americans regarding the Philippines,
but there is a conflict of opinion as to
whether the Spaniards will present a
counter proposition.
j Paris, Nov. 3.—The Spanish commis
sioners have agreed upon a counter
proposition pursuant to instructions
from Madrid. They will demand two
hundred and forty million dollars which
equals the combined Cuban and Philip
pine debt.

Madrid, Nov. 3.—The Government
tins telegraphed General Rios to main

! London, Nov. 3.—Contrary to custom
the movements of the British warships
in foreign waters today have not been
entered daily on the Admiralty list.
Paris, Nov. 4.—The Peace Commis
sioners met this afternoon. The Amer
icans were aware before tbe session that
the Spainards would decline their pro
posal made on Monday to take the en
tire Philippines and pay the debts act
ually incurred by Spain for the benefit
of the islands. The statement is print
ed here today with much display to the
effect that the Americans would insist
upon a complete surrender of Spain's
sovereignty and in the event of their
refusal the ultimatum will be issued.
No ultimatum is contemplated and
there is no probability of drastic meas
ures being taken by the Americans.
The two commissions are not consider
ing an open question. The Americans

eiits of the Spainards.

BIG IMPRQVENENT.
' The buildings which have beeudn the
course of erection for the last five
months at the Virginia School for the
Deaf aud the Blind of this city are com
plete.!, and yesterday they were occu
pied and will be now used regularly.
They consist of an addition to the din
ing room, of 20x38 feet, which was im
pel atively demanded. This addition
was carried up to the full height of the
old building, and this gives a large
basement room which will ultimately
be used as a cold storage. The rooms im
mediately over the dining room will be
used as part of the infirmary and two
of the cheeriest, and most comfortable
rooms in the institution are to be found
here. There will also be two seryauts'
rooms here which were a!sD greatly
needed, and a large store room. These
la«t are immediately under the dining
In addition to these there has been
erected a large stone and brick building
-50 feet square where the pond use' to
be, which is connected by a neat and well
built covered way with the other build
ings. The basement of this building will
for the present be used as a play room
and gymnasium during bad weather,
and this feature has given t':e students
much delight. The. nest story of this
building will be school rooms. These
are admirable. They are so well yen
til .ted and lighted as to be very attrac
tive. On the next floor are bed rooms
and school rooms, all admirably ventil
ated and lighted, and of course will be
heated properly. The next floor con
tains two dormitories 20x50 feet, and
these are exceptionally adapted for the
purpose. In this building the halls are
ample. They have just the size and
other features required, their width be
iug 10 feet. The stairways are wide
and of easy ascent. The whole is fin
ished in North Carolina pine plainly but
neatly, and the work has been well
done throughout. There is r.o attempt
at anything but solidity and strength,
apart from the general fitness of the
building for the purposes intended, lhe
basement of the large building has a
granolithic floor and the supports are
iron pillars and iron girders. The con
tract was let to Mr. G. J. Hunt, of
Richmond, and the plans and specifica
tions drawn by him, the i-oard requir
ing the building to correspond in gen
eral appearance with he other buildings.
Mr. Hunt eublet the work as follows:
The stone and brick work to L. T. Al
mond; the wood work to George W.
Fret we 11; the plastering to George B.
Greaver; the painting to J. R. Gregory;
the tin work to A. M. Garber; the gran
Olithic work to Wm, Lamer. J. A
Sheets furnished the brick. The work
is all of tbe most substantial character,
the stone work being of the best ruble
work, the brick well selected and care
fully laid, the work i 3 neat, well fitted
workmanlike in cbaracter,theplasterlng
and painting well done and the whole
is a credit alike to the institution and to
the persons who contracted for its exe
cution. The bridge connecting the
building with the main buildings is a
feature of the work. It is neat, and its
: arrangement gives the greatest conven
ience, as well as adding to the general
appearance The plumbing was done
by the force at the institution under
the management of Mr. J. B. Miller,
and the superintendent tliinks is of a
very high nature. About the buildings
there have been spaces utilized with ex
cellent economy of space and general
convenience. The whole work has been
done within the $8,000 appropriation,
the buildings costing about $7,000, the
plumbing extra, but there was still a
fund left with which to supply the bed
rooms and dormitories with iron bed
steads, and other useful and necessary
equipments. The (-rounds are im
proved, in the estimation of many, by
the removal of the lake or pond, whit h
was always a source of apprehension
from a sanitary point. The building is
now being fitted with electric bells,
which were a necessity, and these will
save much time. The dining room is
now fiiled to its capacity notwithstaud
ing its addition, and may in a few years
require further enlarging, but just now
it was made as large as the money ap
propriated would allow. This removes
the congestion, allows many pupils who
were debarred the privileges of the
Pieretofore, to attend, and in
ays has improved and broad
scope of this institution.

pressively performed by the Rev. Wm.

STAR MAIL ROUTES.
TheimmeLSe work of transporting
; tLe mail 3 throughout tbe United States
j is dealt with in the annual report of Sec
ond Assistant Postmaster General Wil
liam Shallenberger. The main feature
of the report is a vigorous arraignment
of the existing Star Route methods. The
present system of speculative bidding
is referred to as "discreditable to the
Government." He says the bidders cot
a little under tbe old contract prices
and risk being able to sub let at a profit.
The competition results in the g eater
part of these contracts being awardtd
at low low rates, the accepted bidders
oft.?n using deceit and misrepresenta
tion in obtaining sub-contracts from
poor aud ignorant men. The report re
cites the subsequent steps, saying the
• üb-contractors often lose the little
property they have.
I '•Then there are the unscrupulous
fontractors, who fail to pay their car
tiers, which causes hundreds of claims
a .'vinst the contractors filed in this of
fice and necessitates voluminous corre
spondence to get the claims adjusted.
The department is put to great trouble
and expense. It is recommended that
the department deal directly with the
men who do the work, the total amount
being put into the service without any
lii-gin to speculative middlemen, thus
doubtedly tending to a better mail
•vice. It is conceded that exclusion
speculative bidders would increase
the cost to tbe Government by §1,500,000,
which, however, would go into effect
gradually. Legislation is recommended
requiring all bidders to reside on, or
contiguous to, the routes covered or
formally agree to so reside and personal
&superyise the service.
The report shows the number of mail
routes was 33,705, total mileage 480,461,
aud averaging on each route nine trips
a week. There were 424,332,691 miles
traveled on these routes, costing $107 a
mile of length each, or almost 12 cents a
mile traveled. The to'al annual rate of
expenditure for routes within the Uni
ted States and in the foreign mail ser-
Is $53,023,454.
cussing Alaska, Mr Shalleuberger
the mail service on the overland
from Juneau, by way of Dyea to
9 City, providing for letter mail
only, was extremely unsatisfactory, tbe
contractor failing to render the required
number of trips, and those performed
were irregular and unreliable. The ar
rangement with the < Canadian Post Of
fice Department regarding a monthly ,
exchange or mail between Dyea and
Dawson also fell below expectations.
The establishment of an overland mail ,
route from Cook's Inlet, or Prince Wil- (
liam Sound, through the interior to the ,
Yukon River has been consipered, but
it is not practicable.
The report commends the use of pneu- ,
reatie tubes. This service in Boston is >
especially cited as operating twenty-one
hours daily aud carrying all the first-1
class mail. The New York Postmaster,
however, takes the position that it has
not been possible to make such reduc- ,
dons in the regular mail wagon trips as
was expected.
The expenditure to railroads for mail
transportation was 830,449,837, and the
estimate for railroad transportation for
the fiscal year ending June 30, 1880, is
§33,275,000. A deficiency of nearly $1,-1
°00,000 in this fiscal year for the trans
portation is probable.
The report shows 1,208 miles of travel
ing post officer, and recommendation is
made for a reclassification of the ser
vice, legislation requiring newspaper
publishers to make primary separation
ot their papers aud periodicals for
Ing, requiring postal clerks to wear
ge instead of the present regula
sap, and for general establishment I
stal stations iv railroad depots.
t ocean mail transportation in the
year §1,215,4C0 is estimated. More
4.000,000 letters and postal cards
been distributed in international
lostofiW-s, and only 1,500 errors
were reported. Negotiations are now
pending looking to reciprocal benefits
from Great Britain in the way of sea
post service on the Cnnard and White
Star lines in the near future. Mr.
Shallenberger submits estimates for
ids entire service of $56,944,000 for next
year, and says the estimated expendi
tures the present year will be $54,215,
--738.
Mr. Shallenberger submits a special
report on his investigation in Great
Britain, France and Germany into the
character and cost of their railway mail
transportation He says average dis
tance mail carried by railroads here is
three times greater than in Great Bri
taiD, and doubla the number of pieces
of mail matter of all classes is carried.
The postal system of France is not
equal to the United States. The Ger
man system of parcel post, pneumatic
tube service and telephone branch of
the service are especially commended. ;

Second Regiment trill Stay.
Washington, Nov. 2.—Senator Martin I
of Virginia, accompanied by Colonel
Baker and Captain Taylor, of th 9 Sec
ond Regiment of Virginia Volunteers,
secured from President McKinley yes
terday an order permitting such mem
bers of the Second Regiment as care to
do so to remain in the service. The
Second will continue as the same or
ganization, aud those members desiring
to be mustered out will be permitted to
leave the service under the present con
ditions, orders haviug previously been
given for the mustering out of the regi
ment. Col. Baker was given permission
to fill the places of members of his regi
ment mustered out by taking from the
Third Regiment such men as care to re
main in the army.
Colonel Baker believes that from the
Second and Third Regiments be can
form a complete regiment, but, if not,
he expects to recsive permission to re
Rhis regiment from other volunteer
lizationt which have been mustered
The Second Regiment is now
ered through the State, the differ
ent, companies being at their original
recruiting stations, awaiting mustering
out. The mustering out of the Third
Regiment has been practically com
pleted, but the soldiers will be given
I their choice of remaining in the lervice.

This great book contains the names, ad
dresses photographs and experiences of
hundreds of women who were once hope
less invalids, but who have been restored
to robust womanly health by the use of Dr
Pierces- Favorite Prescription. This mar
velous medicine acts directly on the deli
cate organs distinctly feminine. It makes
them strong, healthy, vigorous, virile and
elastic. It fits for wifehood and mother
hood. It banishes the usual suffering of
the expectant months, and makes baby's
advent easy and almost painless. It robs
motherhood of its perils. It insures the
robust health of the little new-comer and a
bountiful supply of nature's nourishment.
It transforms weak, sickly, nervous inva
lids into healthy, happy wives and mothers
