ORDERS OF NEW COMMANDER
An Interesting Paper Sent Out
to the Various Camps by Judge
George L. Christian.
Grand Commander George L. Chris?
tian, of the Grand Camp, Confederate
Veterans of Virginia, has Issued his first
general orders, as follows: ^
To the Commanders of Camps of Con?
federate Veterans of Virginia:
I. With becoming gratitude and due
appreciation of the high honor conferred
on me by the Grand Camp of Virginia at
Its late annual meeting, I hereby assume
the duties of the o?lce of Grand Com?
mander of tho Department of S'irginla.
In doing so. 1 earnestly crave the sup?
port and co-operation of all officers and
members of the Grand Camp and of all
the subordinate camps In this depart?
ment. The good already accomplished
by the Grand Camp can scarcely boOover
estlmated, both In correcting the false
histories which, prior lo its organization,
were laught to our children about our
struggle tor constitutional freedom, and
In the amelioration of the condition of
the sIcU and disabled Confederate sol?
diers and their families. In addition to
these things, the worid's estimate o? the
character and achievements of the Con?
federate soldier, and ot the principles
for which he fought, has been heightened
by the work of the Grand Camp. Wo
must not let this good work languish.
APPOINTMENTS MADE.
II. Captain Thomtfs'Elletf; or Richmond.
Va., l'a hereby 'appointed adjutant-gen
oral, and Sergeant Robert S. Boshei?, of
Richmond. Va., and Captain John Lamb,
of Henrlco, Va., are appointed aldes-de
camp to the grand commander and these
officers will bo obojvd and respected ac?
cord lngly.
III. "Che following appointments aro an?
nounced to till vacancies on the regular
committees, via: On "History Cuiiimit
leo": Chairman, Hon. John \V. Daniel,
of Lynchburg. Va.; members: Major John
W. Johnston, of Richmond, Va.; and Cap?
tain Thomas D. Ranson, of Staunton,
Va.; on ?'Committee on Legislation":
Chairman, Colonel William Kean, of
Louisa county. Va.
IV. The grand eommander earnestly re
? quest?? that the adjutant of each subordl
pnte camp In the Stute will, on the re?
ceipt of these orders, report promptly to
the adjutant-general the number nnd
gent-inl condition of his camp. This In?
formation Is not only desired by the |
?rand commander In order that he may
know the general condition of? the el nps
of tho department, but It Is necessary
to enable him to make suggestions Irom
time to time for the good of the camps,
und that Ive muy cause them to be vis?
ited where it Is prar.ticablu to do so.
V. The attention of the camps Is es?
pecially directed to the provision of the
by-laws assessing them with ten cents !
for each member to defray the necessary
expenses of the grand camp, and pro?
li.blilnK any camp irom representation In
ihe grand camp until these dues are paid {
lo the quartermaster-general. Washington I
Taylor, at Norfolk, Va. Each camp I
which has paid Its dues, as above stated.
Is entitled to representation In the ?rund
?-??imp In the ratio of one delegate foi
every twenty-five members or fi'actlonal .
part thereof over fourteen members.
.SONS AND DAUGHTERS.
VI. The grand commander urges each
camp In the department to form a camp
of sons ot Confederate Veterans and o
Chapter of Daughters of the Confederacy.
Within a few brief years, those now com?
posing these camps of veterans will have
bec-n called to their account, and we must,
therefore, look to these organizations to
deep alive the memories of our deeds
nnd thp principles for which we fought, '
Special Information as to the sons can
le obtained from W. W. Sale, thc division
commander of this State, at Norfolk, and
1 as to the daughters from Mrs. 8. T.
! McCullough. SUiunton, Va.r or Mrs.
? James Y. Leigh. Norfolk, Va. Th? grand
I commander also urges the camps to Join
I the United Confederate Veterans. When
? we consider the great part borne by Vir?
ginia In the late war, her representation
In this great organization Is by no means
what Is should be. or what It can be j
made, by proper efforts on the part of Ilia
camps.
VII. By order of the grand camp at It?
lust meeting,, the three lieutenant corn- |
manders were directed to visit the camp?? ?
In ihe department; and ihe grand com

SHOPPING,
THAT IS ALL
Every One is in the Madding
?hristmas Crowd
Now.
SOME IMPORTED BEAUTIES
?These Are Soft-Colored Pictures
of Split Yarn?Market
Conditions.
Richmond Is passing through tlio great
niniual shopping period, Months and
even a year ?go proprietors of tho Rloh?
j niond stores, through their buyers, huvo
j boon ' laying In stock for this season ro
: mar.table tor the enormous amount of
1 money put in elreulntlon. Tho muti
who cun Itaepvhls money now would be
a. wonder. Those remarkably effective
distributors of the funde, willingly or
unwillingly 'supplied by the hoad of the
houso, Ihe ladles, aro on tlio street from
early morning until long past the hour
for dewy ovo. buying, buying, evor buy
ing, nnd enough yellow paper will have
been used In wrapping bundles during
tho two weeks preceding Christmas to
carpet the entire site of the city of Rich?
mond, or supply u New l'orli dally for a
year.
The streets aro very picturesque now,
particularly In the evenings, when the
lights nro out. Broad Street all during
the past week wns a seething, over
changing mass, kaleidoscopic In tlio col?
ors presented to tue onlooker. Quito a
number of the stores are usine / Incan?
descent lights abundantly and effectively
this year to direct attention to tholr win?
dow displays.? These aro beautiful and
some quite elnbornte.
MONEY PLENTIFUL.
The people, according to the merehunts,
are spending money plentifully this eea
son, notwithstanding the losses experi?
enced by many In tho summer. Rich?
mond people hnvo been brought, up to
have a good time at Christmas, and lt
Is very hard for them to got out of tho
habit. , A good? lime means that money
must be spent, presents must be bought,
i>,nd the housekeepers make special prep?
arations for dinners on Christmas ano
other days ot Christmas week.
Apparently many presents will be ex?
changed this yenr. The habit of "ex?
changing'? little girts Is growing r?th?r
than waning. "Exchanging" Is purely ac?
cidental nnd quite nnturnl. One'sends
mementoes to his best friend. This Is
done from choice. His best friend sends
gifts to those he esteems highly. That
Includes, doubtless, many who sent to
him. Certainly; many gifts In article*,
and especially In money, are sent to the
poor by ? generous people nt this happy
season with no thought of return. The
consciousness of having given nnd made
somo one happier Is unite sufficient;
IMPORTED NOVELTIES,
The greatest novelties to be found tn
the stores seerr? to he Imported goods.
Yankee Ingenuity apparently took a va
iation all last summer, while the Ger?
mans, In.tlielr toy. shops, and th? Danes,
nt their loom?, were busy turning out
articles Intenoed to bring back American
gold In their .placee., if:, ...
Ono Yankee novelty,, .however, to bo
found in the Jewelry stores as well as
In the department stores Is'the Rllver on
cut glHss. The effect Is very pretty, par?
ticularly for perfumery bottles, decanters
and pocket flasks. *?
In some of the department stores a
very effective picture Is shown. From
whatever angle It Is seen apparently' a
soft light Is falling upon It. No wonder!
when yarn, six or seven times split, is
used In making them. They are yarn
?pen cloth, nnd framed. One cannot help
wanting them. They nre quite expen?
sive, and many, doubtless, can only af?
ford to see them In the glass oases lo
which they are kept,
MARKET- SUPPLY,
Besides being a time for buying, giv?
ing and tho gentle art of' receiving.
Christmas Is great for the enormous
quantity of Indigestible food consumed.
Thn holiday season would be very dull,
according to the notions of many, if this
wero not so. On account of the ban
quettlng propensities of the genUH homo
at this season, the market man will havt
to provide himself with enormous sup?
piles, but only in certain kinds of food
Tho fact Is, while the market huckster
Is the foraner to whom the housekeeper
looks for supplies, he Is not the one who
reully does the thinking and scheming
to see that ine ?mmet does not ruii
dry tit tho wrong time, The man who
keeps In closest touch with the producer
and regulates supply, which Is founded,
of course, on dc-mnnd,? is the Cary Streot
commission merchant. He It is who writes
to the farmer weeks ahead and tells him
either to ship or hold his produce. The
instructions for Christmas are simple and
direct,
"Ship your turkeys; ship your eggs
and your butter, If It ir Inst clase; go. J
prices aro assured. If yu ?lave any very
fat geese, you might vend the?n. Tho
demand Is light. Don't send ducks or
chick? ns. Peoplo won't havo them at
Christinas lime. It Is turkey or noinlng."
Turkeys are high this Christmas, but
there will be enough to go around at the
price. They will sell In market this week
up to twenty-two cents, hardly abovo
that ligure, which Is pretty hlgn. That Is
of course for "drawn" turkeys, "un?
druivn" turkeys will not come so dear,
Eggs will probably run up to thirty
five just bcfoiu Christmas, and will prob,
ably tako a lumblo immediately after.
Chickens, ducks and other moats of
all kinds will remain about what they
are now, unless tho supply Is grenier
than expected, Then they will tumble,
All may bid tholr anxious fear? sub?
side; a scarcity of food In Richmond is
very far off.
