English Pennyroyal Pint A NEW INDUSTRY Now Being Started to I Make Nor? folk a Great Poultry Market. A Poultry I'aekliig and Dressing Ilonse With n Capacity for Five Carloads or Poaltry per W?ck? Win Open TueidiiT? Another evidence of the increasing importance of Norfolk as a center of wholesale trade Is the establishment of a big poultry packing house In con? nection with the cold storage plant of Fuersteln & Company at the foot of Commerce street. , To accommodate this new Industry a building of lOOxCO feet In size with a wing 60x30 feet, all two stories high, has been erected west and north of tho Fuersteln plan and connected therewith. The first floor of the main building Is provided with tiers of coops with a capacity of 4,032 head of poultry. In this room are also the dressing tables, steam vats and cold water tanks. The wing will be used for drying and packing. The upper floor Is similar to tho first floiM- and also has a capuc Ity of 4,032 head of poultry, as well as drying and packing rooms. The poultry handled will come In car load lots from Southwest Virginia and will be carefully selected In that fine section noted for its choice live stock of all kinds, by expert buyers in the employ of the packing house. The dressed product will be market? ed in Norfolk and vicinity and also sent to supply Northern and Southern markets and for use on ships that provision at this port. The dressed poultry will he packed in neat cases made of poplar wood. This new enterprise Is In charge of Mr. H- Stevenson, late of 'Baltimore, and well known throughout the West as an expert In this particular line. The new plant will be completed and In operation on Tuesday next. Sev? eral car loads of poultry have already been purchased and will reach Nor? folk Monday. This will ensure a reg? ular supply of poultry for the Norfolk market and this section at reasonable prices. Funeral of Air. I rank SI. Hcti?. The obsequies of Mr. Frank M. Batts were held from his late residence, No. 213 Duke street, at noon yesterday. The deceased was a member of the First Church of Christ Scientist, this city, and tho service was in accordance with that faith. It was Impressively conducted by tho readers of that church, Miss Mary Way and Mr. Wil? liam J. Wright. The latter read from Ohe 15th Chapter of First Corinthians, and the former from the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health, with Key to the Scriptures." Next enme a period of silent prayer, followed by the Lord's Prayer, and its spiritual interpretation, both Raid in unison. The service ended with the reading of the hymn, "Shepherd, Show Me How to Co," from the Christian Science hymnal. The Interment was In Blmwood Cemetery. Following were the pall-bearers: Messrs. A. W. Deans, JuIIuh O. Lnhman. C. C. Foreman, W. B. Cheek. W. S. Morris, Jr., Charles Hughes, W. J. Wright, and Joseph Mc Borle. The Moral tributes were very handsome. A V lilt to tho Ilm rt. Several days ago a popular city offi? cial nnd a no less popular contractor, accompanied by several friends as in? vited guests, visited the "desert," In Princess Anne county, in search of game. They returned with one "yellow hammer" as proof of their prowess as hunters, and numerous other proof that they had roamed the desert. The city official wore a No. 14 collar w'hen he left the city, but now he wears a No. 20, und findn that too small. His neck resembles somewhat a collection of car? buncles in embryo, and ten-year-old warts, and like the contractor, he has learned to talk with himself. Their con? versations nre In a measure unintelligi? ble to the uninitiated, but the terms,? "mosquitoes," "sand files," "where is my boy to-night?" "the wandering hero," etc., etc., is Just the least hit suggestive to some of their predecessors in peregrinating the desert.

John W. Thompson, Commis? sioner of Immigration, and Assistant Commissioner of Agriculture of North Carolina, was In the city Friday and yesterday. He left yesterday afternon for Washington. From that city he will go to New York to make further ?arrangements for receiving emigrants for the Old North State. Yesterday Mr. Thompson saw Mr. E. St. John, vice-president and general manager of the Seaboard Air Dine railroad, with reference to conveying emigrants to North Carolina over this line. The Seaboard Air Line Is doing a great deal on Its own account In devel? oping North Carolina Mr. St. John assured Mr. Thompson that his road would co-operate In every way possible In the project to people the unworked farms of the State with Northern and foreign emigrants. CMr. Thompson called on Messrs. Jeffers and Darst, Industrial agents, and talked over the plans they have In view for receiving emigrants. In com? pany with Mr. Darst, he went over the city, and was greatly surprised at the phenomenal growth of commercial Norfolk. Mr. Thompson said to a Vlrginlan Pllot reporter yesterday afternoon that he was going to New York to arrange with the steamship companies to bring emigrants from Germany, Sweden, Belgium and other countries to develop North Carolina farms and manufac? turing industries. The State, he says, has enormous undeveloped wealth, and as a great many negroes are leaving, it has been decided to make an effort to get foreigners of a good class and Northerners to come In and take their places. Literature In foreign languages will be sent to the countris from which settlers are expected to come. Mr. Thompson has been'quite active since he went Into oflice last June. He is well fitted for the work tn hand, and big developments may be expected to result from his work. He beHevea that the cheapest farming lands in the country, considering their conven? ience to the marts of trade are located In his State, and Is proud of the fact, that In only a few years North Caro? lina has grown to be the fifth State in the Union in cotton manufacturing.

Extension-Tito I'ropos-. i it Richmond nna Tidewater l ino A meeting of the Board of Directors of the Richmond, Petersburg and Car? olina Railroad Company was held at Petersburg Friday. Those present were DeWltt Smith, of Mew York, president; Gen. J. S. Negley, of New York, vice-president and gen? eral manager; J. C. Trlpp, of Balti? more, and Wm. R. McKenney, of Pe? tersburg. Estimates of cost of work by contractors were made and con? tracts entered into with the Atlantic Coast Eine and the Farmville and Pow hatan Railroad Company for railroad crossings. Tho board took into consideration the condition of the work on the line of the road and devised plans for push? ing the work and for removing hin? drances in the way of unsecured rights of way. The contractors have prom? ised to complete the road south of But terworths'. In Dinwiddie county, with? in the next ten days, so that the road can be operated continuously to Not toway river. The board decided to Issue $100.000 of the company's bonds for the comple? tion of the road. General Negley told the reporter that they expected to havs the road completed southwardly from Petersburg within the next sixty days. The work, he said, on the road north of Petersburg wan being pushed re? gardless of expense, but thai it was be ine retarded in consequence of unse? cured rights of way which are now in litigation. General Negley stated that It was expected to have hud the en? tire road from Bldgeway, N. C. to Richmond completed by the dr.-t of next year, but It would be Impossible t'< finish the road by that time, in con? sequence of the difficulty of procuring the necessary construction material. The company has ordered a number of passenger coaches, which are now be intr made and which will ccst $100.oon. The survey of the road from Augusta to Athens is now practically complete, and the construction of the rend will no doubt be begun In the near future. RICHMOND AND TIDEWATER. There win be a meeting of the sto< k holders of the Richmond and Tidewater railroad in this city at noon next Thursday, at which time a permanent organisation will be effect) I. At a meeting of the stockholders held Friday a. temporary organisation was effected, and the meeting tor next Thursday was decided upon. Colonel C. P. E. Burgwyn, of Rich? mond, the engineer engng <! t.> make the preliminary survey of the road, will have a corps In the field In a tew days. The work will not require a great deal of time. The prospect of the construction of this rond at an early dale has catist ! t\ great deal of gratification in the Cap? ital city and In the count! s through which it Is to run to deep water. It will give the latter easy communication with Richmond markets, and Richmond houses 'will have a new and valuable territory. C. & O. IMPROVEMENTS. The two ten-wheel passenger engines built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works for the Chesapeake and Ohio have arrived at Charlottesvllle and will ?be given their trial tnlps at or/ce. If satisfactory the engines will be put in service between Chariot tesvill ? and Clif? ton Purge. They are numbered ill and 145. The Richmond Locomotive Works Is building several locomotives for the Chesapeake and Ohio. Several have been recently delivered. The Chesapeake and Ohio shops at Huntlperton have recently turned out a palace horse-car to be used for transporting fine horses. It has every !.,)polntment needed to make the aris? ta oratlc equine traveler comfortable. _The common stock of 'the Big Four railroad has gone beyond sixty, and It is predicted that it will go to seventy before 1900. THE S. A. L. IN GEORGIA. The surveyors who have been en? gaged for several weeks In the work of surveying the proposed line of rail? road to be built by the Seaboard from Augusta to Athens, arc now within a ffiw miles of Athens. They -were at Wlntorvllle Thursday and surveyed two routes through that town. Tt Is probable that the new rond will touch the Georgia at that point. From Wlntervllle the surveyors pro? ceeded In a northerly direction toward Hull, a station on tho Seaboard Air Line, about four miles from Athens. It is probable that the pew railroad from Augusta will terminate at Hull, and will come Into Athens over the present track of the Seaboard Air Line. The expense of building a bridge across the Oconee River will prevent the line "being brought directly into the city, as the bridge of the Seaboard Air Lne can be used justi as conveniently. Tonn; CnlnrMl Nnntcti Tlilovo?. Richard Hawks and Matthew Rus? sell, colored youths, nre In the Police Station, charged with snatch-thiovlng. Yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock a lady at the ferry dock was approach? ed by these two young boys and be? fore she knew what they were about, they snatched her purse and ran. They were pursued by ofllcers and cit? izens and overtaken on Plume street. The purse was not recovered- They said they threw it away In the va? cant lot next to the chemical engine house, but diligent search failed to verify this statement. The arrests were made by Olllcers Fentross and Pallett. At the station house each youth laid the offense upon tho other. The name of he lady to whom the purse belonged Is not known.
