COMORN, KINO GEORGE COUNTY,
VA., March 7.?(Special.)?Once in every
four years there ls an exciting scrambl ?
here for the contract^ to carry the
United Slates malls from Frtderlcks
burg to King George Courthouse, one
route, and from Frederlcksburg to
li.in p.itea.i, the other roi.te, througii this
county; and present Indications are that
the competition this year will be no ex?
ception to the rule. Although the new
contracts will not be "lei" by the gov?
ernment until some time next winter,
the subject ls already agitating the pub?
lic mind, and the prospective bidders
aro surveying tho routes and calculating
the cost of carrying Uncle Sam's big
PPS00)00 every eluy, except Sundays, for
four years. The route from Frejerlcks
burg to the Courthouse of thia e-ounty
ls the chief "bone of contention," nml
there are a dozen mrn here who will bid
for it. The distance between these two
points ls tsrenty-tWO miles, and the malls
go and r> turn 'lally?Involving a travel
of forty-four miles every day In the
year. Formerly, the mull on this route
was comparatively small, snd only tri?
weekly. Then Ihe contractor was paid
about $SiY> per year for carrying lt. For
some years past this mall has been dally,
and very heavy?a great part of the
Northern Neck being supplied by this
route?requiring au outfit of three horses
and two vehicles, anl mon of the time
of two men, to perform the service; and
for this service the contractor receives
about *i'"> per 'ear. \\ h' n the govern?
ment allowed $&n0 for a light, III npotty
mail on this route, lt was the conrensus
of opinion that the cnrrle-r was very
I "i :?? paid for his bard and exact?
ing task, and Congress promptly ap?
propriate 1 nn extra sum of money for the
route. This Increased allowance so
whetted the greed for the contract that
bidders ra;,idly multiplied?one man un.
dorbofldlng tho other?until lt was an
easy matter for the government to
have thfl mail carried for a s-im greatly
under thnt appropriated for the purpose.
This low bidding has been kept up, tin til
now the work ls bein*,? done for tM<o,
rs si a I Bil IBM Off enough to pay the hs*
p- Mnry current expenses.
It is rtunOWd ttat BOtSS nf the btial
ne-ss-men of King George will take steps
In tbe? spring to establish several
new telephone offices In thea county. A |
telephone* line has been running through
the entire length of the country?some
twenty miles or more?for several years,
but there ls not, and never has been,
but one pince in the county where a
msSOBgS can be sent or receive 1, and I
that place Is King George Courthouse?
ths only telephone office, by the wey, |
bOtnosil Fredericksbnrg and Oak Grove.
In We-st moreland county?a distance of
about thirty-five or thirty-seven miles.
With but one offlee In the county, the
telephone line has never been a public
convenience to this section, There has
be-en a d- sire, and, Indeed, a business
demand, for oth?*r offices In the Bounty,
but the rates fegnn been so high, and
the commission allowa-il operators at tin
country offices ls so very small, that our
business-men have not felt encouraged to
have Additional offices established here.
A great many winter calves are. being
shipped from this county to Washington
and Baltimore this week, and Rood ones
are commanding verv satisfactory prices.

A prominent King Georgian, who last
year raised SOO bushel* of nats nnd as
many of corn, now abandons farming,
and gives as his reason for so doing the
fact that his oats net ll 1-2 cents p?r
bu*hel, and his corn 2*1 cent* per bushel
after paying freight and other expenses
THEY ARE PLEASED.
The agriculturists of this section are
very much pleased with the monthly re?
ports of the Virginia Climate and Crop
Service, ns a part of the work of the
State Board of Agriculture. The Idea
of a State weather bureau has grown
In popularity, and meets with general
public favor here. That the farmers, of
all people, need such a service, and that
a State weather bureau ls a public ne?
cessity, no one here?not even the fogy
pretends to deny.
The Momentum of Steamships.
The motion of a steamship on a .calm
sea ls so smooth and steady that one
hardly realizes the tremend us momen?
tum of the vessel under his feet
A collision, even after the engines have
been slowed down, gives a startling
revelation of the energy of motion. The
time required to arrest the motion of a
ship ar.d bring it to a standstill can
be accurately determined by calculation*!
These calculations have been recently
made for several well-known ships.
To stop the Etruria, whose displace?
ment ls 9,t>S0 tons, horse power 14,321, and
speed 20.18 knots an hour, two minute
and forty-gajven seconds are required, and
during tho process of stopping the ship
will forge ahead 2.464 feet or nearly one
half a mlle. The United States cruiser
Columbia, with a displacement of 7,350
tons, 17,991 horse power, and a speed
of 22.8 knots, can be stopped In two min?
utes and fifteen seconds, and within a
space of 2,147 feet.
AV 111 Endorse lt.
We believe that public sentiment
throughout Virginia, will endorse the re?
port of the Investigating committee and
the subsequent action of the Legislature
In providing for a thorough reorganisa?
tion of the Deaf, Dumb and Blind Insti?
tution at Staunton.

THE CONVENTION CITY.
Washington ls r- lmirably adapted to the
purposes of such a convention. Within
a very small radius are located the hotels,
boarding-houses, many places of public
interest, and most of the large churches.
Good street-railway facilities place all
parts of the city in easy reach of these
points, and no delegation will be located
at any considerable distance from the
great centres of Interest
Probably no city In the land contains
more of historic and general Interest
than does the nation's capital, and many
opportunities for instructive and profit?
able observation will be afforded after the
convention has closed, and to some ex?
tant during the days of the convention,
lt being very probable that one after?
noon will be devoted to visiting various
points of Interest In and about the city.
All classes of cltlsens are entering very
heartily Into the preparations, and ths
visitors are assured a most cordial wel?
come at the home of the nation next
Of prime Importance and Interest are
the arrangements for tbe meetings of the
convention. Tbe meetlng-placee will be
more numerous than heretofore. Three
great teats, two of which were used at
the convention In Boston last summer;
a large ball, and ten er more of tbe
largest churches will oonetitute the prin?
cipal auditoriums, end at certain times
meetings will be held simultaneously tn
all. Many other churches will be utilized
for early morning prayer-meetings and
other smaller meetings. A combined seat?
ing capacity of mere thea 40,000 will be
available at any given moment during
the convention. The three great tents
will be pltehed on the "White Lot," a
government reservation, just south of tho
Executlv Mansion, ths eeo of which, to?
gether with the Wsshtagton-monument
grounds, was granted te the "Committee
of in*" by n joint resolution of Con
irre-*s. recently approved by the Presi?
dent. AU the pigeon of meeting sro eos*
veslently attngted, sad easily leashed

bava all been decided upon, and Virginia
has been assigned to ths First Baptist
church, along with Alisona
WELCOME TO WASHINGTON.
The "Welcome Bong," which wal
written by Mr. Carlton Hughes, of
the capital, has already become familiar
to Endeavorers ail over the country, be?
ing sung to the inspiring tunes of Dr.
Smith's "America" The words ar* here
To all who love tbe Lord,
Resting upon HI* Word,
Welcome we bring.
In Christian charity.
Freely we ofter thee,
Love in lt* sanctity,
As now we slrg.
As we Endeavorers meet,
In such communion sweet
From day to day.
While we to Ood appeal
May each Ills spirit feel,
May God himself reveal.
To all, we pray.
Welcome to heart and home
Welcome to Washington,
Welcome this day.
Ood grant you peace and rest,
Make pur* each loyal breast,
n each heart the guest,
th you alway.

Wave, wave, our colors wave,
Those which our fathers gave
At freedom's birth;

For all the earth.

De quick with heart and hand,
For Christ to do.

Rescue the tempest-tossed,
Save men, at any cost,

The flags are made, under contract, ty
a firm In Washington, at so small a figure
that they can be sent all over the coun?
try to the different delegations, to be
used on thc "march to Washington." and
in decorating the bootha at the conven?
tion, for a trifle.
The general plan of entertaining dele?
gate* us"d In Boston will be followed this
year. Those who do not secure hotel quar?
ters before reaching the city will Imme?
diately upon their arrival be assigned
quarters in private homes and boarding?
houses, located as near as possible to the
church headquarters. The opinion that
has heretofore been abroa,l-that the ex?
penses of delegates were defrayed by
their churches or societies ls*, of course,
not correct, for each person attending
isis his or her own expenses to defray,
no free entertainment bein-*; provided by
the Washington public?such a thing be?
ing In direct violation to the United So?
THR EXCURSION PP.OORAMME.
At Boston, 1893, the sldo trips In and
around tho Hub, and to thc White moun?
tains and Portland, were oo wtl] attend?
ed that this year more attention will be
paid to this feature of entertainment for
the delegates. The Excursion Commit?
tee- ls arranging for special trips to Illeh
mon.l, Mt. Vernon, Harper's Ferry, the
battle-field of Gettysburg. Norfolk,
Hampton Roads, anl Fort Monroe.
The State Christian Endeavor Union, at
Its meeting last December in Roanoke,
decided to run excursions into Virginia
from Washington In connection with the
Washington committee, and appointed
committees to arrange for them, en there
will be large crowds of visitors in Vir?
ginia during next July besides the great
Confederate reunion at Richmond.
None but those who attended the Bos?
ton convention, and went on the excur?
sions then given, can know of the most
hospitable manner In which th*. Endt-av
orers were everywhere received, and of
the great expense and pains gone to by
every community In which they lingered,
to entertain them. Open arms, open
purses, and, of course, open hearts, pre?
WHAT IS EXPECTED.
The excursion to Richmond will very
probably last two or three days, will be
of Immense proportions, and the commit?
tees appointed by the State Convention
are planning to obtain the auditorium to
be erected for the Confederate reunion,
which assembles June 31st, to bo used for
th* meetings of welcome to be tendered
the visiting Endeavorers. The boarding?
houses, as arranged for the veterans, will
also be used on this erasion.
The arrangements made In Richmond
have assumed no formal proportions as
yet, but lt ls safe to say that the great
reputation of Virginia for hospitality will
In no wile be dishonored, but even added
to. It is confidently experted and believed
that all denominations und Christian or?
ganizations will unite In the reception,
and participate In the exercises.
The Interest felt in the capital of the
Confederacy by the residents of the North
and West, as well as the South, ls won?
derful, and large numbers will make th*
trip with Richmond as the main attrac?
tion, though all will attend the conven?
tion at the national capital. The railroads
last year, and for some years previous
thereto, made the rate of one fare for
the round trip from all points, and no
doubt that rate, or possibly a lower one,
will prevail this year.
The State transportation manager for
Virginia, Mr. Robert Lecky, Jr., officiated
ss such In a most satisfactory and praise?
worthy manner In 1896, and, though he
will have much larger crowd* to handle
this year?yea, a hundredfold?he will
prove equal to all occasioni and emer?
gencies. Information of any character
concerning the convention in Washington
can be obtained by addressing Mr. Lecky,
at No. 1004 east Main street.
Th* Virginia Endeavorer will shortly
make Its appearance as the representa?
tive of Christian Endeavor in the Old Do?
minion, and will devote for the next few
months its entire energy to awakening
Interest In Washington, 1S96.
The number of visitors expected In
Richmond from Washington ls about ten
thousand, and there .nay be more, ss
great activity will be shown in working
up the trip. H. O. L.
