INTEREST IN CLUB Issues Brief but Emphatic Denial That He Owns Any Part of Norfolk Team. BY GUS MA I.BERT. "I have absolutely no financial In? terest In the .Norfolk Baseball Corpo? ration.'' 1 The above Is the only thing which Robert \V. Williams, president of the Virginia League, would have to say In regard to the assertions made In the columns of several nowspapers, avow* oilly opposed to Williams as president of the Virginia League, 10 the effect thai he was either the owner of a controlling Interest in the club or the owner of some pnrt of the stock of the I corporation controlling the club. His denial Is brief, yet emphatic, and leaves no room for argument. "1 have absolutely no financial interest j in the Norfolk Baseball Corporation." Those eleven words tell as much as a volume when It comes to denying a report which won fathered In the mind of some energetic youngster who want? ed to make trouble. Williams Is not the owner, cither In whole or In part, ? >f tlie Norfolk club. That much Is settled once and for all. The Norfolk club Is controlled by a I corporation, and If the men who own I the stock want to show their books at! the behest of every Tom. Dick and j Harry, that's their business. No law ; on earth can make them do it. and j the honest and frank, though brief, ] statement of the president of the: league must be accepted at its face value. Now the croakers will, In all de- ! cency, keejfquict. for, so long as Wil- : Hams does not own any of the vastly i Interesting slock, there can be no ob- j Jectlon as to who does. There are a number of questions ! more important for the Virginia j League than the ownership of the Norfolk franchise; questions vital and j bearing on the very life of the league, j If the energetic busybodles who con- j tlnually harp on that one chord will j turn their attention to some of these I questions they will then be doing the j public a service. Certainly It will be j a pleasing change from the practice ; of trying to make news at the expense of a hardworking official. $325 $245 $210 $225 $3.50 to $5.00 Clothing more vita? to daily comfort than farofcerly-fitted shoes.

Juarez, .Mcx., May 22.?Peace reigns supreme In Northern Mexico to-night. ? her?; nows of tho signing of a peace agreement last night has penetrated. Tho only disquieting reports to-day were private advices from Mexico City that members of the "Oentllico" party, deposed because of tho Maderlsta movement, were thinking of starting a revolution against the latter. Trouble from tho ?/!Clcntlflco'.' ele? ment, It Is admitted here. Is expected, but whether it will take the form of armed revolt after Madero assumes power is not yet clear. Tho insurrecto troops may be kept at the various garrisons In Mexico for u few months In readiness for trouble, but no definite plans along that line have been formed by Senor Madero. Senor Madero and his present chiefs to-day discussed the make-up of the new Cabinet which Is to surround Senor de la Harra, the Incoming Pro? visional President. The most satisfy? ing news to them was the receipt of a message from Ernesto Madero Monterey, announcing that he would accept the portfolio of finance. Th< Cabinet slate predicted by the Asso? ciated Press recently remains intuct. Those who have accepted portfolios thus far are: Minister of Finance, Ernesto Madero Minister of Colonization and Indus? try, Manuel Calero. Minister of Public Utilities, Manuel Bonllla. Minister of Public Instruction. Dr. Francisco Vasqtiez Gomez. Minister of Interior Administration, Emlllo Vasquez Gomez. The portfolio of Minister of Justice, which has been offered to Senor Vas f|iiez Tagle, a lawyer of Mexico City, has not yet been acceptod by him oh account of 111 health. Should he be unable, to take the post. It Is said Rafael Hernandez, a cousin of Fran? cisco I, Madero, Jr., and one of tho go betweens In the peace negotiations, may be named. Dr. Francisco Vasquez Gomez left j here to-night for San Antonio. Tex., wiierc he will meet his family and Journey on to Mexico City three days later. The news thdt President Diaz might retire on Wednesday or Thursday of this week increased the activity of Senor Madero In preparing for his de? parture to the Mexican capital. Should the Mexican railway line from here southward still be out of commission by the end of the week, it is likely that Senor Madero will go through San Antonio and I-aredo. Tex. War? rants held by American officers for I violating the neutrality laws when he was In American territory have been waived, and he has been assured of unmolested passage through Texas. Estimates of Dead. Revised estimates to-day of the cas ualtles of the battle of Juarez place the total number killed at ISO, with about 250 wounded. Of these, the Fed? erals are believed to have lost 150 killed and 100 wounded. The wounded are getting excellent treatment st the hands of the Mexican White Cross and the Red Cross, and only about a half-dozen deaths of wounds have been recorded since the battle. The number of dead was far out of proportion to those wounded as bat? tles generally go, but General Vlljoen. who fought "with the Boers, and has been military adviser to Senor Madero, declared that the heavy loss in killed was Inevitable on account of the close range of the fire. ui.inu tiger cases untried. Special Term of Court May Be Called ] In Durliom. Durham. May 22.?A special term of I court probably will be called to dis? pose of the fifty-one "blind tiger" cases, left untried, at the conclusion to-day of the regular term of the Criminal- Court here. Judge Daniels] will .recommend this special term. Ten of the eleven "blind tigers" tried at the regular term were found guilty, hut have not been sentenced.

The finest milk in the world?thick as cream, utterly sterile?on hand all the time. We have worked for seven years, with famous Swiss and Dutch experts, to help you get rid of the milk wagon. To save you the cost of that daily delivery?the waiting, the shortage, the waste. To give you a milk that is utterly sterile, in place of that germ-laden milk. To give you a whole milk in place of a half milk. To bring you the; milk of high-bred cows, fed in dairying sections. To bring you, if you wish, a month's supply at a time. And to bring the cost below milkman's milk. We are doing that now for a million homes, and we want you to know about it Equal to Swiss No milk in Switzerland, none in Holland, is any better than Van Camp's. Our milk comes from Holstein cows, fed and bred in famous dairying districts. The milk fresh from the cows is evapo? rated and sterilized in ideal aseptic plants. Famous Swiss and Dutch experts have perfected our process. And this perfecting has cost us, in the past seven years, about $100,000. The result is the finest milk produced in America, and the equal of any in all tho world. Like Using Cream Van Camp's Milk used in cooking is al? most like cream. It is 28 per cent solids?8 per cent butter fat. Milk dishes made with it have double the richness of similar dishes made with com? mon milk. For this is whole milk, and milkman's milk isn't. Milk-wagon milk separates?before and after you get it. When it comes to the cooking it is rarely more than a half milk. Please find out the difference. One milk dish will tell you. It will convert you for? ever to the use of Van Camp's. Always Ready Most users buy a month's supply at a time. They open a can when they want it and it keeps until they use it up. There's no shortage, no waste. The milk comes to you as thick as thick cream. You add one part water for coffee. Right at the dairy, under iow heat, we evap? orate two-thirds of the wator. You can put back as little or as much as you wish. Nothing whatever is added?nothing but water subtracted. This milk is not sweetened, as is condensed milk. Thus you can use It for every milk purpose?for cooking, for drinking, for cereals or coffee. Utterly Germless Our cows are inspected. Our dairies arF sanitary. Our evaporating plants are keft as clean as Dutch kitchens. Then, as a final process, the milk is ster? ilized. Not one germ of any kind exists in Van Camp's Milk. Milkman's milk, as you know, carries many infections. Every drop is laden with myr? iads of germs. A large part of the milk is entirely unsafe. When your children drink Van Camp's you may be sure they are drinking an utterly aterile milk. Six Cents Per Quart Reduced to the richness of ordinary milk, the cost of Van Camp's figures about six cents per quart This in spite of -all the cars that we give it The saving cornea in the cost of daily de? livery. That costs the milkman more than the milk. We give you the finest milk in America, put up In the most convenient way; for less than the cost of raw milk delivered] from day to flay. Please try it. A single can will, make -.job a convert forever. The lfl-oz. con?a full pint of Van Camp's? costs 10 cents. The 6 oz. can costs 5 cents. Produced in six states, in the best dairying sections.

It has been nine months since the initial announcement of this contest was made by the promoters, and each month has w'tnessed an increase of Interest on the part of the public as well as tho manufacturer. Almost six months ago the first entry wna made. ; when a Case car, will; Lewis Strang as the driver, was entered. From that lime on the entries were sent In steadily, until the largest Held ever drawn together for oue event was an? nounced, when the entries were closed. The greatest number of entries In any one contest previous to this time was twenty-six. Big Prizes Offered. The long race has assumed even greater proportions than the promoters had anticipated when the ' purse ol $25,000 Ip gold was offered for the winners of the first ten places. A capital prize of $10,000 headed a list of nine others, as follows; Second $5,000; third. $3.000; fourth, $2,000. fifth, SI,500; sixth $1,000: seventh $800; eighth, $700; ninth, $600; tenth $500.
