Representative Hives, of California, says he will push his bill, recently in? troduced in the House, fer the return to the District of Columbia ot the land once part of the District and later ceded lo the State of Virginia. The action of the Twenty-third Congress in miking: the re? turn or this lind to Virginia bu been criticised a* unconstitutional, and Presi? dent Taft at tbe dinner given bim by the business men ol Washington ex? pressed a with for tbe enltrgtment of the District. Mr. Haye* paid yesterday: "I am convinced that the land first ceded by Virginia i* atilt legally a p*rt of the Ditirict of Columbia. The conttitution plainly ntate* that an area not more than lu mile* Kjtiare *htll he the capitil of tue Unifed States, under the jurisdiction of Congress. Thin Virginia land was ceded to the government for the Dittrict of Columbia, and (hore wit aod 1* no authority for itt transfer back to Vir ginii. Since my bill wa* introduced I have become convinced that if tbe land it reclaimed by tbe government tbe town of Alexandria munt be included in tbe transfer. I intend to pu?h my measure at the next session, and I believe that the land will comeback to the District. Certainly, no lawyer will contend for a moment thst it rightfully belongs to the Dominion State, and I do not see how ('(ingres* can act otherwise than to restore the land to the jurisdiction of Congress." The president said in his speech that the city of A lexamlrit should be allowed to remain in Virginia, but members of Congress are of thu opinion lhat if it is unconstitutional for the tract to remain in Virginia it is also unconstitutional lor put of of the tract to remain in the - fe. Mr. Hayes should read the report on this subject made to the Santa hy Sjuator Hoar shortly befoie his death. Smallpox in Virginia. Richmond, Vt., June Ti, 1!K)9.?Re? ports received at the State Health Dp iiirtmeot indicate that smallpox still ?alalaia a vcr/ dangerous form in the tidewater sections of the State. As yet there bave been comparatively few cases, but so many of these have died that tbe health authorities are taking every pre. caution. At the nflice of tbe state health dei -irtment, the commissioner gave out a brief statement on the subject: "We sre not so much alarmed at the pre? valence of the disease," he said, "a* at its virulent form. l'.jyond question, the smallpox now in elstern Virginia is the wo.-st known in many years, and hat caused a very considerable mortality. Our reports indicuta that many people have been lulled into a false security by the mild character of smallpox prior to thi* out lin a!;, and have neglected to vac ciliate their children. As long as this continues, we must expect that the smallpox will become moro and more virulent and will spread very rapidly. "In view of the fart that the local health tuthorties are active in coping with this outbreak, tliii state health department has not yet ordered compulsi ry vacci nation throughout the infected district, lt is undp.istiiiid, however, that unless the situation is improved, compulsory vaccination will be demanded in a num? ber of counties. FEARS BHAD H VANI>HIN(i. Diving to itt price and scarcity, tbe shad, once the depised "food for In? dians," his become a luxury. In Wil? liam Penn's day the colonists marveled at the shoals that invaded tbe Dela? ware But then the Chesapeake was paved with oysters, and the slaves of Maryland despised sn common a diet ai terrapin. The shad arc today more numerous on the Pacific coast, whither they bid to be transplanted, than in the lilli's native waters, where the fish commissions of the United Slates and of Maryland have narrowly averted their extinction. Hy meant of the hatcheries it it be? lieved that the supply of thad ctn be restored to its former proportions. B it it must be a painful process unless tbe stales shall piss uniform bills to con? fine tbe fishing to the natural spawning grounds iu fresh water, where the egg* will assure i's future maintenance. The Federal Dommission of Fisheries has just declared that tbe best the central authorities can do this year is to stock the depleted southern wtters, leaving these of the North Atlantic and New England coast at tbe meicy of tbe fisher? men and the B ate Legislature!, -j New York limes. PROTEOTK IN FROM LIGHTNING I A dispatch from Pueblo says the eaint called San Jos*, formerly worshipped in Mexico City aud state as the *pecial protector against lightning and thunder? bolts, and who*e image was in former days carried in processions through the streets with great pomp previous to the tainy season, will receive special devo? tion trom Catholics in Mexico City in ibe future, as a result of tbe recent frequency of tbe electrical storms and strokes by lightning. Tbe clerical au? thorities of thc 1 (al basilica, as well as those ol other point* in the state, bave decided (rom this year oo to celebrate the novena with as much of the former pomp as pottible. An effort will be nude lo secure the privilege of a s'rcel procession on tbe grnuud tba*, aince the-e have been forbidden by tbe law damtges by lightning btve become fai more frequent. SAMUEL E.
