The fir3t grand concert tinder the aus? pices of Norfolk Council No. 3C7, Knights of Columbus, was given at the Academy of Music last night before a largo nnd enthusiastic audience, and the building fund of St. Vincent's Hos? pital will receive a handsome addition, as the proceeds of,the entertainment go to this laudable purpose. Tlie program, as published In the p^ess, was carried out, with the excep? tion that the contralto solo by Mrs. Charles A. Smith, was not given, and Miss Mary K. Ewell was indisposed so that she was not heard. All of the numbers were charmingly rendered and the nndience was liberal In Its applause. Mrs. J. P. Kevin was compelled to respond to an encore. Mr. Terry B. Gordon recited "Wilfred Den? ver's Dream," and twice responded to encores. His exhibition of facial ex? pressions was particularly excellent and amusing. Miss Alice Jones first sang a contral? to solo, "My Marguerite," and respond? ed to an encore witli a pleasing darkey lullaby. Mr. William Richards' bass solo. "The Outlaw," was so well receiv? ed that he was compelled to respond to an encore, which he did, nnd sang with great power and feeling "Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep." Miss Mary Magoe was also recalled and responded gracefully. Miss Sue Russell scored a big bit with a recita? tion on the theatre bat, In which she Impersonated live-characters. She thrice responded to recalls in a very graceful manner. Miss Alice J. Oliver's contral? to solo, "The Wanderer," was very pleasing and as an encore she sang Suaneo River." Mr, William Crowell. one of Norfolk's old and always popular singers, sang "Because," and his line baritone voice was never heard to better advantage. His gestures were also perfect and added to the effect. He received ap? plause at every pause and such a hear? ty encore that lie was twice forced to return to the stage. As an encore he sang "Mammy's Little Dlnnh," by H. Clinton Clark, of New York, a well known writer of popnlnr songs nnd member of the New York music pub? lishing house of E. T. Paul & Co. This is the first time this pretty little ballad was ever heard In Norfolk. It was an Instantaneous success and fittingly closed the excellent program of the evening. The violin solo. "B Trovntore." by Mr. Charles Borjes, vice president, of the Norfolk Conservatory of Music, was executed wijli extreme delicacy nnd fooling The baritone solo, by Mr. Albert Howard Garrctt, teacher of vocal cul? ture in the above named institution, wns also very pleasing. Tlie concert was under the general direction of Mr. James W. Casey. Prof. A. L. Koerncr, Mr. W. H. Jones and Miss L. do Russey Berry acted as ac? companists. The committee of arrangements was] composed of D. J. Callahan, chairman,] and Messrs. Leo Jtldson, James W. Ca? sey, J. J. niley, W. P. Murphy, T. If. I Synon ami J. B. Malier. The committee on program, composed of ,T. B. Malier, chairman, nnd Messrs. C. R. H?dglns, W. B. Burrow and Geo. W. Rlnehart, did their duty well. The program was neat and well arr.antred. Mr. T. II. Synon acted gracefully us chairman at the opening of the con? cert. Later he extended the thanks of the hospital management to the audi? ence, to those who took part in the on-j tertalnment, to the Academy; manage? ment, and to all who contributed to| make the concert a success.

I?ropo?o lu llnmlle Couirat'rchu I'npor nud JLonus Oil Keillty. For some time the Virginian-Pilot has been aware that a movement was in progress to open a new bank in Nor? folk," and the project now promises to culminate successfully In the near future. The local end of the enterprise has been in the hands of one of Norfolk's well known attorneys, who is well posted on matters connected with loans and llnance. The capitalists Interest? ed arc well known monied men of New York City and .Baltimore. A PRIVATE BANK. On being interviewed yesterday by a representative of this paper, the legal gentlemen representing tlie capitalists confirmed the report of the movement, and stilted that tlie new institution will be a private bank and oavings bank. Its object Is to llnd safe Investment for a large amount of Eastern capital at remunerative rates of interest. At tlie same time ite projectors expect to bundle good commercial paper and de? sirable real estate loans at much lower rate's than now prevail here. Present rates of discount in Norfolk are usually C, 7 nnd 3 per cent. The new bank, It Is stated, proposes to handle gilt-edge paper at 5, G and 7 per cent. It also proposes to make loans on choice real estate at rates be? low those now current. Tlie parties interested have made a careful survey of the local Held, and have aiso investigated the rates of dis? count and Interest on real estate loans in other of the more desirable parts of Virginia. As a result of this Investiga? tion they believe that the present is a most opportune time for establishing a new institution here of the charac? ter described. It is understood that no name has definitely been decided upon, but it is Stated that the name, "The Merchants' Savings Bank," has been under consid? eration. If all details progress satis? factorily, the projectors expect to have their new bank opened before next spring.

The Raleigh Biblical Recorder, the organ of the Baptist Church in North Carolina, pays the following beautiful and well deserved tribute to the late Dr. W. S. Lacy: "North Carolina lost one of her noblest sons, and the world was bereft of one of Its saintliest spirits when Rev. W. S. Lacy, D. D., died at Raleigh, Qc ' tober 14th. He wao a minister of the Presbyterinn Church, nnd that com munion never had nn advocate more true to It or more sweetly tolerant of those who were of other churches. He was pure, indeed, from his earliest youth. He served In the war, both as a soldier of Christ nnd of the cause of Iiis people. Eloquent of speech, he was more eloquent in the sweet example of life hid with Christ in God. To his sor? rowing wife and to his brother, Mr. B. R. Lacy, we extend sincere sympathy."

SECOND DAY Of the Trial of the Coke-Ridgewell Shooting Case. Ucfcu.tn.il TcmiiI1i>h llinl Ho M.ot Ho cnumo of n C"oulei?t?lo?. n.nl n Note ? Charge.! H'llb Kobbery-Sumli.y Liquor Helling. V The Coke-Ridgewell shooting ease oc? cupied another day in the Corporation Court yesterday, and Is still unfinished. Mr. Rldgewell returned to the stand for cross-examination when the trial was resumed yesterday morning. Coun? sel for the defense asked Mr. Ridgewcll certain questions tending to show that Mr. Coke's domestic relations had been disturbed by the prosecuting witness. These questions wore objected to by the prosecution on the ground that, being ' new matter, it could not be brought out In cross-examination. It was contend? ed that the de'fense would have to malte Mr. Rldgewell their witness to ask him these questions. A long wrangle over the point fol? lowed, and ended by Captain llappor, for the defense, moving that Judge Martin make Mr. Rldgewell the court's | witness. When tlie prosecution had rested the court called Mr. Rldgewell to the stand, and on direct and cross examination he stated that his relations with Mrs. Coke had been entirely pro? per, and that he had never bad any correspondence with her, except to re? ceive a note asking for a loan of $00, to which he did not reply. Witness ex? hibited a letter written to him by Mrs. O'Neill, sister to Mrs. Coke, in which she asked his advice in regard to trou? ble which she said existed between Mr. Coke nnd his wife. Mrs. Coke, the let? ter stated, was thinking of leaving Mr. Coke. Air. Ridgcwcll's reply to the let? ter was exhibited. It advised Mrs. O'Neill against Mrs. Coke leaving her husband, saying that stielt a course could bring no happiness lo her. Wit? ness said he considered Mrs. O'Neill's letter to him a queer one, but he an? swered It from a sense of duty. Mr. Coke was put on the stand as the llrst witness for the defense, lie said he shot Mr. Rldgewell because of a confession bis wife made to him nnd a note lie found in her possession. He was on the stand nearly nil the afternoon, Mr. Thorn, for the prosecution, subject? ing him to a rigid und at limes scath? ing cross-examination. Tlie prosecution made the point that the defendant was unwarranted in reaching the conclu? sions he did, und warning was given that witnesses would be introduced to Impeach him. An effort will also be I made to show that the defendant ad? mitted that lie shot Mr. Ridgewcll nndei in misapprehension and attempted to ! bribe a colored girl and man lo testify in Iiis behalf. Mr. John G. Tllton, who was employ? ed as counsel by Mr.'. Coke at tlie time of the shooting, testified as to Ihe de? fendant trying to get Mrs. Coke to sue Mr. Rldgewell. ThL-i proposition. Mr. Tilton, said was made to his client at tlie Interview between Mrs. Coke and the defendant on the day of the shoot? ing. Mrs. Coke replied, according to witness, that she would not swear a lie against Mr. Rldgewell if she could gain millions of dollars by doing so. It was learned from Mr. Mallett, of the defence, i- night that witnesses will be Intr l lo-dny for tlie pur? pose or lmy Ing Mr. Rldgewell. The 11-yer. Id son of Mr- Coke wan Introduced f.o- the defense. His evi? dence related to what occurred between Ills father nnd stepmother on the day of the shooting. The hearing of the case Will be re? sumed at 10:30 o'clock this morning.
