It is understood that three members of the board and one applicant for the board's diploma were satisfied that the young man was receiving assisa?, noe on his examination from a book which h?** held beneath his desk, and upon their evidence this action was taken. DID NOT HEED WARNING. A student familiar with the affair said last night that the young man against whom this charge was brought nad been warned the day before that he was suspected of unfairness on the examina? tion and cautioned, but did not regard the advice, as on the next day he ap? peared even more open in the use of his note books. The fact that he was re? ceiving aid from a book, was finally ?as? certained beyond all doubt, when a watc certained beyond all doubt, when a watch was placed in the gallery of the hall when the examination was being held, who saw the book in the young man's lap, and noticed him referring to it fre? quently.

It is reported that the Imperial To? bacco Company has secured options on property in Rienmond upon which it purposes to erect one of the largest cigarette factories in the world. Inquiry last night failed to elicit au? thorized confirmation of this report. Air. Welford C. Reeu, the Virginia represen? tative of the company is in England at this time. Mr: D. S. Thomas, asso? ciated with him in the conduct of the company's affairs in this State could not be found last night. If this report is true the purpoose of the British Company is to pursue not only a defensive policy towards its American ritrai, the American Tobabeco Comparuv, at home, but a distinctly aggressive and offensive policy abroad. Up to this time the Imperial Company has contented! itself with the inv.asion of America by an army of purchasing agents wh?_ have met and thrown down the gauntlet to the representatives of the great American trust in every tobacco market in this country. The policy of the company has clearly foreshadowed an extensive ware? house system in America. The extensive manufacture of cigar rettes in this country to be placed on the market along side of the goods of the American Tobacco Company would be an interesting sequel of the European factory purchasing tour of President Duke, which led to the formation of the combine known as the Imperial Com? pany.
