VIRGINIA IVJESS.
Tho annual meeting of the Virginia
"Press Association will be hcid at- Vir
ginia Beach, beginning to-day, -with the
prosidont, C. 13; Thnckor. of Newport
News, in tho ch.iir. and J. L. Hart. I3sq:,
of Farmville. Nt the secretary's desk.
We predict ihat the attendance will
be 'large, for our brethren have displayed
■much sagacity in choosing the meeting
'■place.-; The Beach is noted for its fine
victuals. "boating, fishing,'- and baths; has
all th<vquiet necessary .for a deliberative
libody, and is close enough to the industries
•■: of Norfolk to afford a suitable field for. a
tour of inspection, such ;as / editors are
always expected to make when assembled
■in "convention. Therefore, we. envy those
who have found; or forced leisure to as
i.Bomble there. ' . .
■From the Beach they will- come to, RiCii
•■mohd, here to'glance at -Richmond's pro
;press,; and become, .the:, recipients of
'"jearty. hospitality.
■ The editors, however. "<are combining
f business" Avitlv pleasure, aiid a number of
•hours each day. while they are at the
I Beach, will bo spent by- them in discuss
; ing. topics; of serious interest to the pro
fession; for which assignments of speakers
vhlive boen made. Among the' members
-thus conscripted and assigned to duty; are
I some Who , have oratorical gifts, while
-others are geniuses in the way of writ
ling papers- and reading them to their,
audiences. All, it may be presumed, are
; properly imbued with the necessity for
';. brevity,, and therefore, the prospect is
•that the contributions They will make to
the knowledge of the newspaper world
j.v"ill-j)e characterized Ijy ability, cbmpact
iiieap^and directness or aim.
; Most of the. subjects chosen for con-:
veidcration are practical-^ — and., we may
odd, puzzling. The difficulties preventing
'unity of action on the part of newjspapcrs
art>- almost insurmountable. Each paper
lias a field of ojieration '•; not exactly
cSupli'sated 1 elsewhere., and a course or
■action in" the buriness office, or in the
'editorial room, that' would; suit one
would not: suit another. Hence
the difficulty of laying down hard and
fast; rules of management. But among
|.lhe}: millions who constitute the general
; l:j)ublic "there, are very few who cannot
"ti'U any,, edit or how to run his newspaper"
,an.l': we guess ll«at what the rank outsider
■can do the man on the inside is also
"■equal; to. -.'■ "." - . • .;
■The truth is, that none "of us like criti
f.cismland few of us are very grateful to
Jour Verities; . yet most of us somehow, or
r'othcr, profit by a knowledge of; what Is
l expected tof us. • •
And so the members of the Virginia
iPress Association are sur^.to'. be. ad-
; vantagod by attendance upon this meet
ing.; Much that they hear will be news
:io. them. Some things that are old will
■•..be' presented to them In a newlight. An
of. views,' wnether Jn!; public or
:Jn private, and a better acquaintance one
iAvith another, will draw closer than ever
before the bond of fraternity., which in
our profession roally is 'stronger than
• surface-, inaications would warrant the
public in believing. . ;. .

What is becoming of the' English spar
row? Is- he' passing away? , : . ;■: -".-.
Certainlyhe Is not so often in evidence
horcabbut-'as:' he used to be. and from
other parts of Virginia also" we hear .that
these birds are" hot nearly so numerous as
they, were : some years ago. -The conse
quence is that the small native birds are
reappearing in many localities,; enlivening
orchards and woods, fields; and meadows
with their cheerful songs.'.; .
If it be true as to the whole; State" that
the robustious John Bull sparrow is dis-"
appearing how can it be accounted -for?
Has disease thinned his ranks or the in
hospitality of our people driven him to
other climes? Who knows? -
: This sparrow was introduced into Rich
mond about ISTO by General Newberry.
who was Registrar of tlie Virginia. Land
Office and Superintendent of Public Build-,
ings under Governor Walker. At that time
the trees in the.Capitol Square Were in
| fested with caterpillars, and these spar-
I : rows were ■ relied ' upon to ; destroy them:
Their services were beneficial to some-ex
tent, , but' with so many opportunities for
feeding upon stables and garbage heaps, it
is no wonder that they declined to accept
an exclusive, diet of caterpillar ; eggs. .
From Richmond, from Washington and
from other cities the English sparrows
spread into all. parts of Virginia, ' % and at
times threatened to become as numerous
as the flies in Egypt, but now, we are told,
as we have said', that their numbers are
declining, but .why. or wherefore is not ex
plained.. _ , ' , ;. _
mYstizkious ixtimation.
■ Under. the above heading the New York
Sun copies the following from the Brook
lyn Eagle: ' . -. "
Governor Montague, -or Virginia, ' made
a very favorable impression on the North
ern Democrats at the Tilden Club gather
ing. He is handsome, : cultivated, ; eloquent,
prudent, progressive and straightf orwa rd.
He Will be in office lor four years as[Gov
ernor, and'he meets well the requirements
of a Southern man for national honors, in
asmuch as. being only. 40, he is too young
ever to have fired a shot at the Union.
He was •in • pinafores when- Lee : sur
rendered, and he has not been" a fountain
or a factor of Bourbonism since. -.'
■"While'the Sun affects to see a mystery
in that paragraph, it is too. keen-eyed. not
to discover that the Eagle means that
Governor Montague is a "Presidential; or
vice-presidential possibility. There have
been intimations to that effect before, but
we don't believe the Governor is on any
such trail "as that now. . ,'

By yesterday's transactions ..the" street
railway and electric •light- .properties of
this city were combined into one organi
zation — composed, practically speaking,- of
the men -who formerly • controlled the
Richmond Passenger 'and Power Com
pany. '; , ; V ■
The conveyance seems, to give "the
utmost satisfaction to sellers and buyers
alike- They are both jubilant.- and "we
know of no existing cause for discontent
upon the part of. the general public. ••• -
Properly regulated, a consolidated street
railway system can give the people an ideal
service, especially in the matter of trans
fers. In this case, if not property regu
lated——why. it Will be the .- fault of the
people of Richmond, and .their representa
tives in the' City '.Council. . " - ■■■■'- ■
Richmond has now a street car system
which in power plants, tracks, and rolling
stock, will compare favorably with that
of any other city of our size in the World.
Great; improvements were made in the
past -five or six years, owing largely" to
competition; but competition has done
about, all it could do for us, and now, it
remains for us to hold the immense ad
vance • ; made, and to keep in reasonably
close touch with new improvements. -
If the owners of the combined properties
adopt and firmly' adhere, to : that course
they will have "no kick coming to them"'
from the community.
: Senator Hanna is being congratulated
on his vote-making speeches, "which i se
cured the -passage of the . Spobner. canal

In the crowhiugof Edward VII. of Eng- j
land, and; his Queen, which • occurs on
Thursday, in many respects the time-hon
ored ceremonial will be. so modified 'as to
adapt if to; twentieth i century conditions
and environments. The ".fea
tures will present a blending of mediaeval
and modern" magnificence, in which. the
latter \vill impart a polish to much that
was crude, not to say semi-barbaric, • in"
the display, of . the former ..On the other

In this land of "Republican simplicity"
the approaching "show," with its pro

impressive; stately, arid* brilliant functions
that have taken place in' some two; gene

And to be entirely honest] again, what
makes bur criticism, of the ceremonial still
more ill-timed is the fact that while the
British - are -;ln significant particulars
simplifying the process . •of } sovereign
crowning,: we have' been- steadily,!-:"dis
crediting our "Republican simplicity": in
the matter of inaugurating- Presidents.
Moreover, while the developments; of tne
English system i of government is
stantly in the direction of the
sovereign more and more :to 'the; position:
of a figurehead," in. the lastfew years, es
pecially, the trend of .developments in this
country :-,;. has been -v towards giving ■••the
President a big head and encouraging
him to assume arbitrary powers.

A "PAUSOXS' CAUSE."
The ministers of Cumberland, Md.. havo
long suffered, a peculiar - grievance, . and
the other day. took. organized;^ arid it would
appear, ; -: successful, 'steps to"- remedy it'
They have been the victims of a trust,
or- a: matrimonial middleman combina
tion. It appears that Cumberland is^a
flcurisfiing Gretna Green- ; fpr .Western
Pennsylvania, and that certain brakemen
and newsboys. of the Baltimore: and Ohio
trains running into. the city, on the Pitts
burg division, -have been, '.profiting largely
by that fact at ' the expense of the
sons. These brakemen and newsboys would
ascertain: what couples were on the train
en route for^. Cumberland' to lie married,
and then crrahge to secure: them a hack
man, marriage license and preacher The
wculd-bo groom, usually, ignorant of con-,
ditions. assented, and was charged not
less than $10. The license cost '?1; the
preacher got 53, the brakemari, ' J2, the
newsboy $2 and the hackmari ?2.
The "ministers • claimed -that they were
entitled to all -the grobms-expectanf were
willing to pay,.- over, and : above the hack
hire, "and; at a recent /.meetings/of their
local uniori,_; they gave "expression to .that
claim; in a; series . of ringing : resolutions!-
