piled to by Mr. Vonnblo.
The ticket is Lyons and Whltchead.
Mr. W. H. Sargeant, Jr., was beaten
by Mr. John Whltehead by two votes
In the City Democratic convention,
which met at noon yesterday In the
Real Estate Exchange room to nomi?
nate two candidates for the House of
Delegates. It was a close light be?
tween these two gentlemen, and as th?
victorious candidate afterwards said In
a speech, "It was one of tho closest
shaves ever witnessed."
The entire 31 voles of the convention
were cast, and both nominations were
made on the first ballot.
Mr. M. J. Lyons, the tailor, and tho
labor candidate, received 30 votes, Mr.
Whltchead 17, and Mr. Sargeant 15,
each of the delegates voting for two
candidates.
The convention was called to order by
Captain W. W. Dcy, chairman of the
City Democratic Executive Committee.
Secretary T. J. Randolph read the call
for the ward mass-meetings and the
convention.
TEMPORARY ORGANIZATION.
Mr. Washington Taylor was placed in
nomination for temporary chairman by
Mr. R. O. Pitt, of the Third Ward.
Captain Dey was also nominated, but
ho stated that he couldn't serve, ns he
was not a delegate. Mr. Taylor was
then unanimously chosen as tempo?
rary presiding officer, and Mr. Ran?
dolph was elected secretary. On mo?
tion of Mr. Morris Adelsaorf this tem?
porary organization was made perma?
nent.
SEN. MARTIN ENDORSED.
Mr. Randolph then Introduced the
following resolution, which was unani?
mously passed:
"Resolved first, That the representa- I
tives of the Democrats of Norfolk, In
convention assembled, desiring to place
on record their high appreciation of
the able and efllclent service of the
Honorable Thomas S. Martin in the
Senate of the United States, hereby de?
clare that by his uniform courtesy and
prompt attention to all matters confided
to his case, by his faithful and tireless
efforts In the Interest of his constit?
uents, by his Intelligent and successful
work In their behalf, by his fidelity and
ability In the discharge of all his duties,
he has justiliod the confidence and won
the admiration of tho people of Vir?
ginia, j
"Second, That the representatives of
Norfolk in the General Assembly be,
and they hereby are, Instructed to vote
for, and to use all proper efforts to
secure his re-election to the United
States Senate'."
Captain A. J. Dalton, of the Second
Ward, made a motion that the voto be
taken by wards, tho chairmen of the
respective wards casting the vote of
tho delegation. This was adopted. As
the delegations from the several wards
had already made up their voto no con?
ference was necessary, and the nomi?
nations then began.
TII,TON NOMINATES LYONS.
Mr. John G. Tllton, of tho Second
Ward, was recognized by the chair,
and as he walked upon the stund to
nominate Mr. Lyons there was some
applause-Miv-TiUon-mado a?pretty
talk in placing Mr. Lyons' name before
tho convention. Ho plead for harmony,
saying that it was the wish of the can?
didate whom he nominated that all
Democrats get to-other to light their
traditional enemy. He spoke of the
complete confidence of tho labor
classes, which Mr. Lyons held, and said
that he, Mr. Lyons, was a Democrat
first, last and all tho time.
Mr. Lyons' nomination was second?
ed by Mr. C. H. Consolvo, of the First
Ward.
MR. WHITEHEAD NOMINATED.
In nominating Mr. Whltehead. t'ap
taln A. J. Dalton gave a brief sketch
of that gentlemnn's political career,
showing that he had been an active
Democratic worker, not only locally,
but in other parts of the Slate, for
the past twenty-one years. Ifc had
held positions of trust In tho Demo?
cratic organization, had stumped sev?
eral Congressional districts in time of
peril to the party, and had never asked
nn office of any kind of the Democratic
voters. A federal office In the Internal
revenue service was given to him. pn
sollclled, through the Influence of the
late John S. Bnrbour, a cloue political
friend nntl nssoclate.
Captain Dalton closed by saying thnt
ho believed Mr. Whltehcad's nomina?
tion would strengthen the Democratic
forces, and that he had it from the
mouth at a man as close to Senator
Martin ns ho could be not to be Nona
tor himself, that if Senator Martin
could nemo one of tho Norfolk dele?
gates Mr. Whltchead would be his
choice.
Dr. L. R. Chiles, of tho Fifth Ward,
seconded Mr. Whltehcad's nomination.
MR. SARGEANT'S NAME PRE?
SENTED.
Mr. W. IL Venablc, of the Second
Ward, placed in nomination Mr. W. H.
Sargeant, Jr., and In doing so paid a
high tribute to his character and abil?
ity. He mentioned the special qualifi?
cations that a lawyer of Mr. Sargoant's
standing Was endowed with, and said
he believed him to be tho titlest man I
for tho place. Ho had not boon long
a voter nnd a fighter In tho Democratic
ranks, but ho wan arfehrnost Democrat
and faithful to his principles.
Inasmuch ns all throe of tho candi?
dates were outspoken for Senator Mnr
:'tln. Mr. Venable thought If there were
any personal reasons why any ono of
the candidates should be the choice of
Senator Martin, as has boon said, It
imlght as well not have been mentioned
on that floor. No such considerations
had to do, with choosing a representa
i'.Uye of . the people.
Bearit had been seconded.. Chairman
Taylor announced that the.vote would
bo taken. As the wards were called
the chairman of the delegation cast
the vote. The vote by wards Is as
follows: ?. ?? ? ? .
First Word?Lyons, G; Sargeant, 4;
Whltehead, 4.
Second Ward?Lyons, 5; Sargeant, 3;
Whltehead, 2.

Fourth Ward?Lyons, 2; Whltehead,
2. ? ?
Fifth Ward?Lyons, 8; Whltehead, 8.
Sixth Ward?Lyons, 8; Sargeant, 2;
Whltehead, 1.
Mr. Tazewell Taylor held the proxy
of Delegate-at-Large A. P. Thorn, and
cast this vote for Mr. Lyons and Mr.
Sargeant.
Mr. Lyons and Mr. Whltehead were
then declared the nominees. The
Whltehead men cheered lustily, and, on
motion of Mr. Venable, a Sargeant
man, the nominations were made
unanimous.
THE NOMINEES SPEAK.
J3oth the nominees were brought Into
the room by their friends and intro?
duced in turn by Chairman Taylor.
Mr. Lyons spoke first, thanking the
convention and pledging himself to
vote for Senator Martin.
Mr. Whltehead spoke for about ten
minutes. He caused laughter when he
said that he had previously prepared
a speech for that occasion, but It was
his own funeral, whereas he was not
dead. Last Monday, he said, he
thought he was about ns badly beaten
as any legislative candidate who ever
rnn In Norfolk. He eulogized his oppo?
nent. Mr. Sargennt. and spoke' of the
friends who had stood by him in the
fight'.
"LAND GRABBERS' ACT" DE?
NOUNCED.
On motion of Mr. J. O. Tilton, the
convention Instructed the delegates to
work and vote for the repeal of what
is known as the "Land Grabbers' Act."

Arter suffering many rebuffs at the
hands of the Select Council the famous
nnti-splttlng ordinance now seems to be
successfully headed on the road to the
'municipal statute books of Norfolk.
For some time this ordinance vacil?
lated between the Common and Select
Councils with the same frequency nnd
regularity that the pig skin vacillates
between the two halves of the gridiron
with a well matched football team on
either side. Finally a conference com?
mittee was appointed, and hist night
this committee, consisting of Messrs.
Ca nip, Benman and Taylor, of the Com?
mon branch, anil Marx and Oberndor?
fer, of the Select branch, met and rec?
ommended that the Select Council res?
cind from Its former action in unani?
mously refusing to pass the bill. Dr.
(.'. F. Ncwblll appeared before the com?
mittee on behalf of the Board of Health
which Is anxious for the ordinance to
become a law.
Rcfoie making Its recommendation
the committee added three sections to
the bill. These are sections three, four
and five and their effect may bo seen in
the amended ordinance printed be?
low:
THE AMENDED ORDINANCE.
1. "Be it ordained by the Common

DR. TAYLOR ARRIVES.
THIS NEW ? PASTOR , OP FREE?
MASON STREET BAPTIST
CHURCH..
Rev. Dr. J. J. Taylor, the new pastor
of Freemason Street Baptist Church,
accompanied by hi6 family, reached the
city on the 7:10 train over the Chesa?
peake and Ohio railway last night.
The distinguished divine was met on
the arrival of the train at Newport
News by Messrs. L. Roystev, Merrl
wether Winston and other prominent
members of the church, who acted as
an escort to Dr. Taylor. When tho
steamer Louise arrived at her wharf In
Norfolk the delegation was largely aug?
mented by other representatives of the
church.
Dr. Taylor and his family, accom?
panied by their friends, went at once
to the Monticello Hotel, where quarters
had been secured for them. Eater In
the evening an elegant supper was
served, after which several hours of "so?
cial converse were enjoyed.
Dr. Taylor will enter regularly upon
his pastoral duties with his church next
Sunday, preaching both morning and
night.
In conversation with one of the lend?
ing members of the church yesterday
the reporter of the Virginian-Pilot was
told that the church anticipates a great
work with the ministrations of Dr.
Taylor, as the membership is thorough?
ly united and propose to hold up the
hands of their pastor in his efforts to
bring the church to the highest stand?
ard of Christian excellence and useful?
ness In the community.

was written, and should have appeared.
This should hove appeared, "Tho
gunboat Chesapeake is now on'
duty under command of Capt. Hudg?
ins." The error is regretable under the
circumstances, as the many friends of
Capt. Hudgins confidently believe that
the charges made against him by sorno
of his subordinates will be proven en?
tirely unfounded.

of the Atlantic and Danville Railway
Company have by indentures of this
date been leased to the Southern Rail?
way Company, the lense to take effect
at midnight of this 31st day of August.
1803.
"The rights of the Southern rallwny
In the premises will be recognized by
all the employees of this company from
and after midnight of this date.
"All bills against the Atlantic nnd
Danville Railway Company, all reports
for mileage, freight and ticket balances
and' nil remittances prior to September
1. 1S99, will, until further notice, be ad?
dressed to the proper officers of the
Atlnntlc nnd Danville Railway Com?
pany as heretofore."
It is understood that the lease Is for
ninety-nine years, with privilege of re?
newal. The figures of compensation to
the Atlantic and Danville were not
given out, but it Is understood that the
stockholders of this line fare quite well.
It Is supposed thnt there will be some
changes In the Atlantic and Danville
force, but what they are cannot as yet
be oven outlined.
A telegram received from Richmond
Rnn'n nftpr the Norfolk mooting stated
that, tho stockholders of tho Southern
railway had met there nnd confirmed
tho lease of tho Atlantic and Danville
to their system.
There was a stockholders' meeting
hold first yesterday by the Atlantic and
Danvlllo interests, and tho directors'
mooting followed.
REASONS FOR THE DEAL.
There have boon a number of rea?
sons for the deal suggested by those
who take Interest In such matters.
Tho Atlantic and Danville Avns not
until within the past year or two a pay?
ing properly. Since then, however, It
is said, the road has about paid ex?
penses of operating.
One effect of the sale of the At?
lantic and Danville to tho Southern will
be to shut off entirely railway competi?
tion to Danville. Tho Southern already
owns the Danville nnd Western, run?
ning westward to Stuart, Patrick
county. The Southern, Atlnntlc and
Danvlllo, and Danvlllo and Western
are the only roads entering Danvlllo.
The Southern also prevents the
building of a competing line to the
South by the Atlantic nnd Danville,
which was projected to connect the
road with one of tho big systems
touching at Columbia.
There are other good reasons for the
deal which are greatly to the advan?
tage of the Southern. It is a well
known fact that the freight traffic to
and from Norfolk, nnd the South, as
well as between Norfolk iind Lynch
hurg, and northern points. Is quite
heavy and Is rapidly Increasing. By
controlling tho Atlantic nnd Danville
route the Southern enn cut off nbout
eighteen miles between Norfolk* and
Greensboro, N. C. and thence to South?
ern points, and can also do away with
the work of barging traffic from Pin?
ner's Point to Norfolk billed for points
south of Greensboro. Tho distnnce from
southern points to Norfolk will also he
shortened, and practically a double
track system will bo established be?
tween Norfolk nnd Greensboro and
Charlotte, N. C. A quick route be?
tween Norfolk nnd Danvlllo, Lynch
burg nnd points further north will also
bo established.
It Is understood that tho Southern
will at once commence the Improve?
ment of tho Atlantic nnd Danville rail?
way, both the road bod nnd the rolling
stc*>k. Better schedules will soon be
established.
