The "College Boys" are composed of players who have been on some 'var? sity or college team during the past football season- Notable among them uro Berry, who played a line game at end for the Georgtown University team, and Lankford, who captained the Rich? mond College team.

Justice and Mercy Mingled Hap? pily Yesterday. Tbc Wine Judge or Ibe follce court Deals Geittly Wllb ibe diiort mi a tea m no Sin wllb Exceeding Jtegulurlty. And when the festive holiday season was drawing to a close and the dis? tant December sun shone warm upon the land hereabouts, making them the days 1 of spring-time, and all the earth seemed glad with music, and dancing, Jue tlce Robert came upon the bench and administered unto his people bang up Justice in a measure suitable to the sa credness of the Joyous occasion". Now his people were a white people and fair to look upon, and he. loved them with a love exceeding great, for upon frequent occasions they had ex? alted him, and in his great heart was gratitude even as the myriad pebbles upon the sandy beach, and dally he sat upon his throne to Judge and to bloss them, and his equity wa3 unequalled in all the country round about. ALSO ANOTHER PEOPLE. Rut there was also another people In the land: a people of various colors, who did sin with exceeding regularity, and whose complaints were aired be? fore HIsaoner with great frequency. These varl-tlnted people found no fa fur with the ruler, and he dealt with them according1 to the law and the' ordinances, for they failed to regard the commandments of Mr, Goodrldge, neither regarded they the mandates laid down by the wise men who com? pose the Board of Health. Now this ruler lived amongst the Philistines, and according to custom he had to mingle frequently with them, yet. In his heart tqere waq no Ill-will Inwards them: neithw from his lips came any unbecoming words. He dwelt beside the river called Elizabeth, In a place known as Ghent, In a land of promise (principally promises), and he found much favor in the eyeis of his people. He was 'learned?not In his own conceit?hut In the law, nnd other rulers came from the distant country of Warwiek and from tho pleasant val? leys of Brambleton and the fertile fields of Huntersvllle nnd Atlantic City, to sit at his feet and gather words of wisdom that fell from hi* lips. A HAD HAND MAIDEN. Flrett then came a hand-maiden, whose name was Fannie Ronson, and slio was black, and her ways wore ways of darkness, and she did smite with a stone another woman of her kind named Lucy Jackson. The. Judge was wroth against Fannie, and commanded that she pay Into the treasury ten pUcos of silver. Susie Jones, a decendent of Ham, was adjudged to be a womnn whose daily wall; and conversation was improper, and it wan demanded of her that she pay the expenses of auch Judgment. James Smith mingled with the wine blbpei? for a! very long time, but the ruler ,had conlposslon on him and told fMm^i^H^ss^y1,1 peace- nnd sin no more. "*"'?*-? a ? Jojeph, whose sur-iwme'v , X-?JW cried out before the Judge??nC'^"d: "Oli, thou, great ruler of little things such riS inc. I pray the deal gently with me. for I was hungered and they gave me drink; I was thirty and they min? istered ur.;,i me; I was cold and they warmed me with wine!" The judge had compassion upon him and allowed him to go. A WICKED YOUTH. Thomas Malr.tin, a wicked youth, found no favor with th.;'Judge, for he us^aulted two white hoys, and his con? duct was very bad. The rlghteoua ruler was sore vexed with him, and demanded that in- pay two-score pieces of silver into the treasury of the city. Albert Frazler and Otis Murray, two youths of tender years, were, upon In? vestigation, found not guilty, and were told to hasten hither. Oscar Prouf, In an unguarded mo mo lit, allowed his angry passions to rise, and he did smite a woman, whose name was Jennie Jonen, but extenu? ating circumstances reduced to a min? imum the heinousness of the- offence, und he was let off on payment of costa. F?ILEf) TO PROVIDE. Alexander P.yrd was very wicked In the sight of the judge, who said to him, "Alexander, is it not commanded of thee that thou shall feed thy beast of burden? and yet, upon the bones of this horse, I see but a very 'little meat; and he look* as though he would fain ea:t of tho dead leaves on Gran by street, or the withered grass of the court? house square. I am much vexed with thee, and command that my people col? lect from thee forty pieces of sliver; and If thou fall to provide for this bea'st in the future woe be unto thee." Henry Williams did take that which did not to him belong, and he was as? sessed twenty pieces of silver. JUSTICE HAWKS' COURT. C. Esposlto, alias Christian Ross, was before Justice Hawks yesterday on three warrants sworn out by Louis Mahgtalctto, president of the Italian Beneficial Association of Norfolk and Portsmouth, on the following charges: Desertion of wife and children in Read? ing, Pa., and living with two women here, one of whom he claims to be his wife: keeping a disorderly house and selling liquor without a license. The case was continued until Tuesday after no, m at 2 o'clock and bail allowed In $100 security, given by Kate Jannett H?tts. It will be remembered that Esposlto and Marglnletto had a little trouble a' short while ago In regards to a false publication made by the former, ac? cusing the latter of fraudulently using the funds of the society.. Esposlto was expelled from the organization on ac? count of this publication. MANY PEOPLE MARRY-.

And now comes the news that the increase of business of the Belt Line railroad since its opening is considera? ble more than 100 Der cent., and that the rules established at the opening of this great benefit to this port are be? ing revised and new arrangements to care for the great and increasing bulk of traffic are being made. Sixty cars par day was the start, 'or the bulk of traffic about three weeks after the line was opened, or at the time the Vlrglnlan-rPUot reporter took his trip over the line with Superinten? dent (then acting) Shafer, of the Belt. Now 150 to 175 per day Is the average and the Increase is so rapid that the new year will probably see It a cool 200 cars almost at tho opening of January. Formerly the big bridge across the Southern Branch kept Its draw open all night and only the red nnd green sld? lights were necessary, as the bridge was not' used at night- Now the bridge carries its red lights as well and night and day trains are both run. As the sail and steam traffic of the river were far In preponderance at the start, the bridge was kept open tho most of the time, only being closed on the ap proach of a train, and tho fine gasoline engine could get tip power for moving the draw at any time in ten to fifteen minutes. This has not been changed yet, but Superintendent Shafer Bees in the near future a need for other rules fast being forced upon him.'nnd It may not be further off than another year, when the opening of the bridge for navigation's uses and otherwise keep Ing it closed for train traffic will be the rule. This road was built with roadbed and accommodations for four tracks, and the need of all four is not thought to be far distant. Property all along the line is on the rise In value as manu? factories and shops anywhere along its tracks are by It made contiguous to any road running into or out of Nor folk. The new arrangements for the use of the bridge necessitated a visit to the Harbor Board and their ruling on the number, description and position of IiEhts to be used on the bridge nnd draw at night. This Mr. Shafer has attended to and the new rules will soon be promulgated. the articles Metropolis," "A go." "A Year's Work I'ub'Ientlnii* ltece|v?<7..

Mr. Bowers wrote to the chief of po? lice of Newport News, and laid the facts before him, the boy having stated that he thought his father was in that city.
