The Ignorant and uneducated shall he heard here equally with the learned. llo?|ii<iil ItiiiUllna; Editor Vlrglnlan-Pllot: ?? Now that this .city, and community is stirred by the unfortunate partial destruction of St. Vincent's Hospital, and efforts are being made to raise money by subscription to restore the building and appliances, Would It not be well for the feeling to take deeper root and effort to be Increased, and while the work Is going on would it not be well, In addition to this $50.000 Tor St. Vincent's Hospital, to raise the amount necessary to help the noble women who are enguged In the good work of the Protestant Hospital? They have labored for years, and without the encouragement und a:d they have deserved. This seems to nie to be a favorable time to see whnt can be done to bring success to their efforts, which have been without hope of reward. In this large Protestant community no special eliort In the way of public meetings have been held and assistance proffered. It is well enough to assist the ltomnn Catholic Institution, hut In doing so let us not forget the Protes? tant Hospital, which Is not doing the work it would do for want of sympa? thy nnd aid. There are men and women in this community abundantly able to old both. Let them come forward prompt? ly with their means, not prompted by a desire for political aggrandizement or by mercenary considerstlons, but from love to Clod and suffering humanity. It Is to be hoped that In all future meetings of citizens the necessities of the rrotcstnnt Hospital -will be con? sidered with the Roninn Catholic, for surely the wants and necessities of the former arc as great as the latter. X. CITY CONTRACTS. MR. BARNARD WILL APPEAL, TO THE COURTS. Mr. W. H. Barnard, of W. H. Bar? nard & Co., has employed H. H. Rum? ble as counsel to sue out tin injunction restraining the city from awarding work by contract or otherwise to mem? bers of the City Councils or to linns in which they are directly Interested. Mr. Barnard when seen last evening by a Virginian-Pilot reporter sajd that he was not pulling other people's chest? nuts out of the Arc, neither was ho a public benefactor. His Interests had been crossed by city work being award? ed to firms In which Councllmen are Interested, and he Is going to apply for injunction, he says, simply as a busi? ness matter. He says other business men whose Interests have in a like manner been hurt, have asked to be 'al? lowed to join with him In the court pro? ceedings, but he prefers to work alone In the matter. Mr. Barnard says there Is a heavy penalty attached to the violation of this law, which says. In effect, that no Councilman shall do work for the city, or furnish It with supplies. It Is said that the Injunction will be applied for in a few days. AMUSEMENTS. WASHBURN'S MtNSTRKLS.

TO REGULATE AND CONTROL THE TRUSTS. (By Telegraph to Vlrglnlan-Pllot.) Washington, D- C, Sept. 2C?Attorney Genernl Grlggs has written the follow? ing reply to a letter recently received by him from Governor Plngree, of Michigan: "i am In receipt of your letter of 'the 21st Instant, asking mc to send you a copy of my 'opinion to the effect Hint under the constitution of the United Suites, Congross cannot enact a law which would be effective in supressing trusts, so-called.' "In reply, i beg to say that i have never rendered, either officially or un? officially, any opinion of this kind. On the contrary, this department has been engaged In bringing numerous suits In the United States Court under the Sher mtin act of July 2, 1S0O, entitled 'An act to protect trade and commerce against unlawful restraints and monopolies,' In several of which cases, notoriously Hint ngninst the Trans-Mlssourl Freight As sootntion, lGfi it. s.. 290, and that against the Joint Traffic Association, 171 u. s., R05. the result has been the suppression j by decree of the court of the offending agreement or association. JURISDICTION OF CONGRESS. "You mny possibly have reference to a letter of mine to n private citizen, published several months n.go in the! newspapers, wherein-1 called attention to the fact that the only jurisdiction that Congress has over combinations or contracts In restrnitit of trade, wils In relation to those which directly affected Interstate commerce. That this Is true, nnd that this is the full extent of the Sherman trust not, you will as? certain by reading the decision of the United States Supreme Court In the en.se of IToriklns vs. the United States, 171. IT. s. 57S. nnd the case of tiu> United' Kt.-u.n vs. E. C. Knight Company, 15G. U. S. 1. WHAT CONGRESS CAN'T DO. "You are doubtless aware that it is not the right or function of the Fede? ral government to Interfere with busi? ness transactions carried on within the several Sitates, except upon some ground expressly authorised by the con? stitution. Congress can regulate di? rectly that which we understand by 'Interstate commerce.' but it has no power'to regulate or control business or commerce carried on wholly within tho limits of a State. "I have called your attention to these matters, not because I assume that you nre Ignorant of them, for you doubt? less understand thorn well, but only In order to explnln to you that I have not given, and could not possibly have given, any opinion of tho purport ex? pressed In your letter."

Washington, Sept. 2C?General Henry Heth, the Confederate chieftain ? and historian, died at his home in this city at 1:40 o'clock this morning of Bright's disease.

UNDER MARTIAL LAW. A GENERAL STRIKE IN HAVANA NOT ANTICIPATED. (By Telegraph to Virglnlan-Pllot.) Havana, Sept. 26.?"There will he no general strike," said General Ludlow this evening.

To all intents and pur. poses the city is under martial law. The civil authorities will do their ut? most to co-operate, and will do nothing to embarrass the Military Governor. General Ludlow says that If it should be necessary he can find room THE MAN_0F_T0-DAY. Though Apparently Strong and Healthy He May Be in Imminent Danger. Wc read of the sudden death of men Apparently lull of health nnd strength, and we are astounded. But were they healthy? No, though outwardly there was nothing the matter, and no symp? toms appeared by which a doctor could discover their disease, there was, not? withstanding, a disease present, which sllontly and secretly was laying up poison which, when the exciting cause should come, would immediately flood the lungs with Its deadly secretions and render them Inert and useless, so that the man who had been apparently a tower of strength grew feeble as an infant, and, inspite of the efforts of the greatest doctors, slowly choked to death. Medical writers will tell you that tho victim of pneumonia is drowned In his own secretions. But why wero not these secretions carried off? Because the kidneys were unequal to the task and needed aid. If business men, and men of affairs generally, when apparently in perfect h,enlth, could.be Induced to take pre? cautions?how greatly would the num? ber of widows and orphans be dimin? ished in this fair land! The remedy is so simply, so well known, so infallible. To nvold pneumonia and Bright's disease and all other ills arising from diseased livers nnd kidneys, all that need be done is to take ns directed, Warner's Safe Cure. It will cleanse, it will strengthen, it will feed these or? gans, so that they can do their work. Autumn then, with Its sudden changes of temperature, will have no terrors for us?for colds cannot find lodgment in a healthy body, and as for the greater evils of which we have been speaking, this medicine is known to furnish perfect Immunity from them, to nil who take it faithfully according to directions. at tho presidio for 1,000 prisoners, and at Cabanas for as many more. Where all the rights of citizens are at stake, he considers that'the existing military power should supersede any legal tech? nicality. CUBAN'S AWAITING SENTENCE.
