Work: on the Club-Honse Will Bes*n «ts Soon as Ponslhle-— The Organi zation Proposes Having- n Beauti ful Country Home. There is little doubt that the Legislature In its last moments will pass the bill in corporating- the Tuckahos Country Club, which is soon to have a line clubhouse at Westhampton Park. Between two hun dred and-three hundred of the best known men Jr. the city are named in the bill of incorporation, and Mr. Anderson, one of the Senators from this, city, is trying to get through the two houses a resolution rescinding the one adopted some time ago providing that no more bills should* be introduced at the present session. He has no doubt that the House will to-day fol low the. example set by tho Senate yester day and -concur in the resolution. He will then introduce .the bill- of incorporation and that it will be passed there is no doubt. The organization of the Tuckahoe Coun try Club is the result of careful considera tion on the part of the members of the Lakeside Club. For several years, in fact since ihe dying out of the'wheel fad, the necessity for a different location for the club has been keenly felt, 'More than a year ago committees we're 'appointed to examine the various sites to the north and west of the city. The final result was the accejitance of the proposition mado by the Westhampton Park Company giving from two to lour acres of ground on one of the most beautiful elevations on the outskirts of the city and promising a quick service over the electric lines, with an interval of not. more than" fifteen minulc-s from the Traction Company line, on Robinson street, to the park. This latter was tho greater inducement, as it was impossible for business men to have a game of golf or tennis on the grounds at Lakeside and not lose a whole afternoon. To get to the r.evr grounds it will take at tho longest not more than thirty minutes. A FINE CLUB HOUSE. The plans for the Tuckahoe Club' pro pose to make it one of the most complete in the South. The clubhouse will be a handsome building, surrounded by broad porches and furnished and equipped ac cording to the most- modern ideas of con venience and comfort. The basement floor will be fitted with lockers and baths for the me:i. The first floor will have a ladies' room, reading-room, and dinlmr-room. The idea of the committee in management is to have this floor so constructed that all the rooms can be thrown into one which will be used as a ball-room. The upper floor is given up to bedrooms, which will he at the command of the members wishing to remain over nieht. The most pleasing improvement contem plated In the building of the new club is an up-to-date cafe whore dinners and lunch eons can be given throughout the year. The building will b« built on the side'ref of a gently sloping hill, and approached by a circular, driveway. On that side will be a handsome port-e-cochrre, and the porches will protrude some distance, form iasa kind of c^-m OVER THREE HUNDRED MEMBERS.

HOPKINS FDHIRE 60^ THE CHEAPEST CASH OR.CREDIT STORE. IN; THE CITY. to perfect the organization will be held on Wednesday, April 2d. At this meeting officers will be elected, committees aD pointed, plans accepted and the contracts let. The work will be begun at once, and it is hoped to have the club completed by November 3d, ; at which time the Lakeside Club goes out of existence. Though the new club promises such bril liant things with: its far more picturesque site and better accommodations, yet it is' not without a few quams of regret that, the members give up Lakeside, which when reached, fulfilled all the reasonable needs of a sporting man. Lakeside Club was organized in 1595 with Mr. Archer Anderson. Jr., as president. It was originally ' restricted exclusively to wheelmen, it berng generally known -as- a wheelman's club. Gradually horse-men made it a popular drive a.nd* drivers de sired membership and were admitted as "contributing members." About two years later the strect-c.ir line was extended and the restrictions being removed the mem bership increased to SOO. LAKESIDE EVENTS. The club became quite the thing and no entertainments were more enjoyed than those given at the house. A garden party was tendered the members every summer and the annual meeting in October was always celebrated with a banquet. The New Year's dinner was looked forward to with much pleasure, being the invent of the year. Besides these affairs light re freshments were served every Saturday afternoon throughout the year. Since IS9S the gymkana races have annually beon' held on the Westbrook road. Also golf tournaments wore held every year. The club buildings were put up by Major Lewis Ginter, and still belong to that es tate to which the club pays interest on the money expended. . No club has been a more decided success and had the car lines given a better ser vice, it would have continued the restful resort for weary and. office-worn business m«n seeking a breath" of fresh air after : a busy day. It is rumored that certain Jewish citi zens will purchase the grounds and or ganize a club there, but this cannot be ascertained certainly. AT rOWKATAN COUKTKOSE.

A meeting was held yesterday at Rocky Oak Methodist church, about four miles from here, to consider the question ,of re building the house of worship there. A committee was appointed to wait on the membership and ascertain their wishes as lo \whether . they desire to build a new church or to repair the pres ent biiildinjj. Mr. W. A.

Among these bills is one proposing an (appropriation of $40,000 for a Virginia ex- I'hibit at the World's Fair, of which Col. A. M. Bowman is patron. This will be presented at the extra session.

Tho enrollment of bills passed by the General Assembly at this session was fin ished last night by Enrolling Clerk H. B. Owen and his assistants, and all the bills are now ready for the signature t»f the Governor. Tho early completion of this arduous work is something almost,, if not quite, unprecedented.

March 31.— 1n a letter from Athens, published this morning in the Times, the correspondent says there art many indications that grave trouble ii coming in Macedonia and Albania. -There is no doubt that M.

In spite of his failure to secure any support at Athens, or Belgrade, for his projects, M. Sarafoff is continuing his preparations. ' "The protest of the Powers," writes the correspondent, "urged to< action by ttu Greek circular, -have resulted in : Turkey's making energetic military preparationsfin the face of which.it is. possible that 31.
