BULL AFTER ALEXANDRIA.
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
Mr. Haye* paid yesterday: "I am
convinced that the land first ceded by
Virginia i* atilt legally a p*rt of the

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

restore the land to the jurisdiction of

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.
