Upon the beginning of the session of

monwealth's Attorney D. c. Richardson
arose and addressed the court In re?
ference to the condition of the city jail.

to the mind of every citizen, and moved
that a rule be Issued against the City
Council in the .shape of a mandamus
requiring them to show cause why they
should not provide a new jail for the
city of llichmond.

ble at the November term, the fith of

suggested that n day be fixed that
would give to the Council sufficient
time to answer the rule, lie thought

ing or two, in order to prepare itself. 1

for twelve years, and that as little time
Should be consumed as is absolutely

in the history of the Institut,- has there
been so much Interest taken In foptball i
as this year. Every cadet is anxiously
awaiting the game with Washington

this year Is one of whit h all an- proud,
for we have been successful In obtain?
ing gam>-s with the University <if Vir?

University of Maryland and Blacks
burg, and reflects great credit upon our;
managers. The team has been practic?
ing sine,- September, the first and soon
after a second team was organized,
which has lined up against the llrst
team every afternoon, consequently the
men have had both offensive and de?
fensive work. Every man Is In per?
fect condition, and under the captain
shin of Charles S. Roller and efficient
training of Messrs. Walker and I' i ??
nett (University of Pennsylvania), the
K am is in line shape.
The greatest game of the season, of
course, will In- with Blacksburg on
Thanksgiving in Norfolk. Both teams
are confident of victory, and as these
two old-time rivals. V. M. I. and V. i\
I., haven't played together for a num?
ber of years, great enthusiasm has
1?ii aroused in both schools. No
doubl both Norfolk and Portsmouth
will turn out In great force to witness
this game, and as there are ii number
of alumn! of both institutes, there
should be great interest manifested in
both eitles. Excursions will be run
from Old Point, Hampton and Newport
News, so that every one- will be able to
witness one of iSur greatest games of
the season.

To the joy of all we found this year
every modern Improvement, and the
