The Virginian-Pilot representative in this *Mty, knowing tlie anxiety of the pifOple of Portsmouth to know whether the improvements that have been men? tioned would be made to Hotel Ports? mouth and the doubts that have been expressed In regard to the same, yesterday visited Mr. D. Lowenberg at his ofllcc In the Columbia building, In Norfolk, and introduced himself to that genth man, who met him with a hearty shake of the hand and a pleasant smile. The conversation wits opened by the se ribc. "Mr. Lowenberg, the people in my city are anxious to know if you are really going to remodel the Hotel Ports? mouth, and. if so. about when will Ihe improvements be commenced and what will they consist of?" To this he replied: "My dear fellow, yon ran assure your people that we certainly Intend t'> do all that has been Eald that we would do, and even more; but we hive not been In a position to do anything yet. the property not having been transfer? red lo us. We had hoped to begin July 1st, but Mr. Hayes. Mr. Nowguss' rep? resentative, h is bo<m absent from the city for g< me t me, and othi rs connected with the deal have also been absent, consequently the delay, but Mr. Alfred P. Them lr s everything ready and the transfer will bo made and we will take possession August 1st. Work will be commenced in a few days afterwards. We have all our bids in and are ready to award the contract, but have been waiting for the transfer." "Mr. Lowenberg, what changes d<> you contemplate In the High street ap p. ar.im e cif the building'."' "Oh, my dear sir; come, let me show you." i We were then carried Into Ihe draw? ing room, uli re all the plans were, and n large! picture of the building .lust as it will look <?!! High street and on I 'otii I \\ as shown us. The building will be utmost entirely new when completed. The windows will all be taken nut and will be arched. < 'n each corner and in the center will bo large circular or bay windows from the ilrst Hour above the stores t? the | fltth story; Aunt her story will be built In i lie present building. There will be a lar?;.' rotunda built from the ground II ior en High street t" Ihe roof. In the store where Run*' ding store now is all Ihe buildings in the rear will be pulled down and the entrance to the tho.'itcr I v. ill I..- fitted up in first-class style, in the yard there will be a glass palm sa I loon for ladies and guests, where re i thmcnts ami cream will he served. This saloon will be lifted up in the most elaborate and ton eful roihner. The side nf the building in Court street | I will bo taken out ami a modern front 1 similar to the Monttcello will be put In. j Where the old one-story efflees now stand will }>?? luiM- up tlv" rtorh s high. . it will be us d exclusively f. r . hambers. | The entire Itoor over the stores in the] old part will be us-d as oltlccs, gentle : en's and Indies' parlors and reception I r< ins, which will be furnished In tho m?>st modern style. The building will ! ho throughout heated by steam, will have tin i levntor, and will be lighted by both -ras nnd electricity, nnd will be me' of the most mod.u'li biilldillRS in the K nth. It will have in bed chambers, which will bo Uiihl and airy, well llght ed and ventilated. The Interior of the building will be very much after the Monticcllo; In fact, It will be a building th?il Portsmouth people will look to with pride and one thai any city might f< . I proud of. "Mr. la wi nberg, do you think it will pay on ihe start?" "Pay. my dear man? yes. I Consider it the best Investment I have mad" re? cently. I v anted some of your Ports? mouth capitalists to go with me. I showed them how it would pay. but they wer,- sli w to move, except one or two. I did not want outside ?capital to take charge, but hail to do ,t. I am so mm li Impressed with the fact that it is ?i splendid investment that if I could not have gotten others Interested I would have gone Into it all alone, and it will net be long before they will see it its I do and will regret It." "Will there he any changes made In tlte stole.. Mr. I ,o weither?? a number of the tennntn are anxious to find out." "Yes, sir: the front will all be made in keel 'tu: with the other part of the building. Th- stores Will bo deepened about -'" feel er ni ne. Did yon not no tiee how they looked in the picture you saw'.'" Anutdvos-Link was taken a; the plcUUM nnd one could but help noticing what ihnngc there will be when the building is completed. The stores will compare favorably with those In any city. "It will be tlie finest building in your city, with a steam elevator. The ofllces will all be lighted and heated, and it will take your people but a short while to learn that where nil the olllces are concentrated that ii Is better for them. a" man cannot in these times spend an hour or so running from one ofllcc to another in different parts of the town looking for people he wants, when, if they wi re all in one or two buildings he could transact his business In a few minutes. Wo had trouble in Norfolk t- aehing people this fact. Now they pre? fer it, ami lind that it Is more to their advantage, and so will your people." "Mr. Lowenberg, what about (he theater':' Will it be ready for occupancy by tho time for the theatrical season is open." and what kind of plays will you have I here?" ? We will commence work on the Ly? ceum (for thai will he it- name) on Tuesday er Wednesday, and will have It completed by (lotoiier 1st, w hen Mr. Wells will take charge. He has rented ii lor one year and will run a first-class vnudevlllc show. When I say first-class I mean such a show as no lady, no mat? ter how fastidious she may lie. would hesitate to attend. The best theaters in the country are changing from the old style to the vaudeville. In New York and elsewhere the best actors see how the lido Is turning and are giving up the old plays and are ndnpting them? selves to the vaudeville. In Richmond it Is taking where other troupes do not draw. People are too restless now to sit and listen to an orchestra for fifteen or twenty minutes between acts. The Old plays have become stale and the demand for nn improvement has come in tho vaudeville. You tell your people we will give them as good shows as Norfolk or any other place has. I wish I 1 had time. I would tell you more, but at present this will have to do." The Virginian-Pilo: scrllis can say to the people of Portsmouth that w hen the hotel is finished, which will not be be fore January, ir?oo. ns it w ill c?ke some time to make the changes, they will have a hotel that will excell any of its kind in most cities. It will be ? daisy and will tie run in first-class manner. t I doz. Men's Madras Ties, which sold a: 10c., will go (to-day only) at C^c. The New York Clothing Co., 211 High street. 2T. doz.

Yesterday afternoon Mr. Edward Cassell, w ho keeps a bar nt the corner of Sixth and Mua rovltc streets, shot a mute named John Johnson twice, one ball hitting him in the lb-shy part of the arm ami the other in the right side. About eight months ago .1 ?hnsotl shot Mr. Cassell's 10-ycur-old son without any cause, but simply picked up the gun. aimed It at the boy and shot hltn. At the time he was In Mr. Cassell's em? ploy. He was sent on t? court and re? ceived a six months' sentence In Jail, because Mr. Cassell did not want to prosecute him on account of being a mute. Recently when Mr. Cassell would be away from his place of business be would loaf around there, but would leave when he came back. Vest- rday he-acted strangely, peeping in the win? dows, etc. ?>n Cassell's return t-? the bar he was told of the man s action, lie went to Johnson's home on Muscovite street, pulled open a blind and shot the boy through the window. It seems that Mr. Cassell has never gotten over the shooting of his boy, and yesterday he shot Johnson. The negro's condi? tion was considered serious last night. Mr. Cassell was -arrested by Consta? ble McWIlllnms and carried before Jus? tice Rustic, who committed him to Jail without bail until this morning, when the ease will be called, and if the man's condition is such that he can't appear, the ease will be further continued. A GENEROUS SPIRIT. Messns. Phillips A Mahoncy. lumber ib tiers and mill nun, have shown a generous spirit by presenting each com? pany connected with the lire depart? ment with a check Tor titty dollars as a token of esteem In which they are held by said Ilm?, and for th.- excellent work (lone by the department at the tire Sunday night and Monday morn? ing. The companies appreciate the mi: as it came so unexpectedly, and was freely given. The gentlemen con? nected with the department say that when they attend lire it is not with a hope of reward, but with a feeling of pride and a desire to help their fel? low man when In trouble. Tlie following note was attached to the check: "Aunicclntlng the valuable service rendered us by you at the lire on the morning of the -'Ith instant, in pro lecttng our property from the flames, we take pleasure in presenting to your company the enclosed cht k for $50 as a slight token of our appreciation, "Yours very truly, "PHILLIPS, MA HONEY & CO." ARMSTEAD'S STORE BURNED. Yi stcrdny morning shortly after day? light two negro men went to Arm Ktead's st.ire. on the shell road leading to Hodges' ferry and began breaking through the windows. A boy who was slci ping in tip- store got up and ran away. The men Hen entered tile store and set lire to it and burned it to the ground, including cont nts. The men then left. This is the third time Dial this place was set on fire. About two weeks ago two men went to tho store and assaulted Mrs. Herman, who kept store linn- and would have kill, d her but f .r her screams, which brought pe iple to her aid. A pile of wood caught from the lire and all of it, as well .is some other property, would have been destroyed but for valuable assistance rendered by a colored lire department from the county, who used buckets ef? fectively. NO "TANGLE" AT THE NAVY YARD a Washington special in yesterday's Baltimore Sun says: Some nnnoyaneo has been caused officials of tho Ord nnnee Department at tin- Norfolk navy yard over reports that affairs there have become "tangled" and "out of gear," ami that it was necessary t ? as? sign a chief gunner to the yard to ge( things in order. It is stated that should the department have been in bad shape a regular naval officer of the line would be charged with -the duties of correcting the trouble. Ordnance dill - cers here say that nn excellent condi? tion of affairs at the Norfolk navy yard has existed at -all times, notwith? standing the dlfliculty of executing rush orders, the frequent changes of ofllcersnnd tin- Instruction of raw men.
