Wants Additional Service Via
Old Dominion
The movement for a night mall sc r- J
vice between Richmond and Norfolk
and intermediate river points vin the]
tild Dominion steamers received new
impetus yesterday when the Industrial
League of Claremont took action to
secure this service by application to
ttie (Second Assistant Postmaster-Gen?
eral. Residents of Claremont particu?
larly feel the Isolation of their posi?
tion with respect to postal facilities,
and arc anxious that the night ser?
vice be installed.
Richmond -.as rtvi-li"'ns Norfolk have
always regarded the phn with favor,
as has also Newport N* ,.*s. At pres?
ent the afternoon mails for Norfolk

o'clock, with practically no other out?
let to Kastcrn Virginia until the morn?
ing trains. The contemplated boat
ervlee would accommodate mall de?
posited In the post-Ottlcu as late as 6
Iniltistrinl League Acts.
The letter written yesterday by the
Industrial league of Claremont to
.loseph Stuart, Second Assistant Post
mastcr-Gcncral, calls attention to the
isolated situation of the immediate
liver points, and asks the Post-Oflicc
Department to install i night service

interview with President Walker, of
the setamship company, in which ho
stated that his company was wilting,
to carry the malls free of cost until
the arrival of the regular time for
entering Into new mail contracts.
The Industrial Leagu ? had informa?
tion tb the effect that the chances for
securing the service would be im?
proved If application for it were de
fi rred till dune. The suggestion of

Tickets for Both Leagues, but
Later Withdraws Order.
Thru Hio local club in tho Virgin la
League will pass up no opportunity to
mako the path of the united states
League' as hard and arduous as possi?
ble was demonstrated yesterday! nf
ter The Time*-Dispatch printed a list
of the merchants who would place on
sale tickets of admission to Lee Park,
Tiiese merchants, exponents of the
progressive: for Richmond, were lii
formod by telephone, from the oltico
of W. it. Bradley, president of tho
Richmond club In the Virginia Lea?
gue that th< y could not sell tickets
to Loth Uroad Streit und Lee l'.nk.
After tho selling agents protested, thf*
message was altered, and the mer?
chants 'were told that they could con?
tinue selling tickets for Virginia Lea?
gue games.
Such action on the part of the Vir?
ginia Dengue magnates is In direct
Variance with the statement Issued
from the camp of the United States
League. President Landgraf has an?
nounced time atol again that he would
not light the Virginia League. In a
statement made to The Tlmes-Dis
i patchy several weeks ago. Landgraf
said: "We have no light with either
the Virginia or any other league. We
are coming In lb Richmond t" matte
money and to give the fans an hrllclo
Of hasehall which Wo hope and believe
they will like. If they like the brand
we are offering better than they like
any other brand offered, then We may
expect their patronage as largely; we
Will have earned it. But If wo lull

Comment?not all of which has been

latest action of the Virginia League
magnate. Indeed, it formed tho topic
of general conversation In the busi?
