Next Saturday all lovers of football
In this section will have the opportu?
nity of witnessing one of the greatest
football games of this season. It prom?
ises to be the most stubbornly fought
contest ever played on a Southern grid?

to lock horns and wage war for South?
To those who have followed the sport
it is needless for us to enter into any
lengthy discussion of the incidents
which have led up to this game, and
which promises to make it, from a "de

termlned-to-do-or-dle" point of view, a
sight well worth seeing. Hut for those
whose natural curiosity will cause
them to follow the crowd to League
Park next Saturday, and who are un?
acquainted with the facts, and for
those who will attend the game from a
patriotic reason?to cheer a favorite to
victory?It might be well to briefly re
view the facts In the ease.

Shortly after the game It was an?
nounced that all athletic relations be?
tween the two Instltulons had been
severed. Virginia claimed that North
Carolina had professional players In
her eleven and gave this as her reason

State teams again.
In 18D9 the usual Thanksgiving name
between the two old rivals was sorely
missed. Virginia played Lehigh, it is
true, but everybody felt as though
something was wanting.
Then came the reconciliation, und

Saunders Taylor, the latter of this city
and with a record of having been one
of the best quarter-backs ever on the

Captain John E. Loyd, of the Vir?
ginia team, is u football player of
great experience, in lsyj ho played
left tackle on the Richmond College
team, and continued in that capacity
during the seasons of '03, * 1? 1 and '95,
and has filled the same position on
the University team for the last two
years. Capt. Loyd is a magnificent
specimen of manhood, perfectly form?
ed, weighing ISO pounds, and standing
!i feet 11 Inches. He Is a native of
Bedford county, Virginia, and is a
great favorite with the students.
The North Carolina team Is captain?
ed by F. M. Osborne, of Charlotte.
While .Mr. Osborne has not had the
long experience that Capt. Loyd has.
he is a finished football player and is
up in the line points of the game.
This is the third season that he has
worn a North Carolina uniform and
his presence on the team Inspires his
players to struggle unceasingly for

Wo recently made announcement of
the football K?me to l><> played in this
city on Thanksgiving Day between the
elevens of the Virginia Military Insti?
tute and the Virginia Polytechnic In?
stitute (Blacksburg). This announce?
ment was made upon the strength of
the schedule arranged between these
teams in September and publishd at
that time. All arrangements had been
completed here for this game by the
local commit lee in charge. The man?
ager of the Virginia Military Institute
I team has now notified this committee
that on October 30th Blacksburg man?
ager wired him hat they refused to
play In Norfolk. Knowing of no valid
objection that could be raised to play?
ing in Norfolk, the Virginia Military
Institute team offered Blacksburg the
additional inducement of giving them
either ?0 per cent of the net gate re?
ceipts, or of paying their railroad fare,
hotel expenses and all other expenses
Incurred by them in coming here.
Blacksburg refused this offer and the
game consequently falls through.
"Fraternity news" Is a scarce nrtlcle
lust now. The secret orders of Nor?
folk are, in the main, pursuing the
"even tenor of their way" and have
' nothing to give out for publication.
I The answer made to the reporter's in?
quiry is, "Nothing but routine business
this' week." That accounts for the
paucity of news in this column.
Mr. Harry Kemp, deputy grand re
gcnl of the Royal Arcanum, visited
Norfolk the past week in tin? Interest
hi thai growing order, not only here,
but throughout the State. Mr. Kemp
Is a worker. Having business tri do. ho
does it, which accounts for is success
in promoting tin? Interests of the Royal
Arcanum in Virginia.
Tin- Klks "Lodge of Sorrow" to be
held here, in Newport News and every?
where thai a lodge has lost a member

preparations are In progress for the
event. Mr. W. II. Venable, our Com
Monwealth's Attorney, will be the prin?
cipal speaker of the Hampton Lodge,
and Rabbi Ca!Ischl the eloquent He?
brew pastor from Richmond, will de?
liver the address in Norfolk. That they
will acquit themselves as becomes ora?
tor.' and give pleasure to their hearers
goes without saying.
Norfolk T^odgc No. 9, and Charity
Lodge No. 10, K. of P., will assemble at
their Castle Hall Tuesday night, No?
vember 20th, In order to proceed in a
body to the First District Convention,

No. 48, Berkley. Many prominent Py?
thian* of the State, together with the
grand chancellor, will ho present.
Brnmbleton Lodge No. GO, K. of P.,
held a very Interesting meeting hint
Tuesday. The amplified third degree
was conferred on one of their candi?
dates. The membership of this lodge is
now quite large and is rapidly increas?
ing through applications received at
nearly every meeting. At the district
convention to he held at Lee Lodge, of
Berkley, Brnmbleton Lodge No. no.
will be no doubt well represented. The
members are requested to meet at their
lodge room next Tuesday evening at 7
o'clock, and after the regular routine
of business has been transacted the
lodge will atend the convention In n
body. All members are requested to
wear badges, which can be obtained in
the lodge room.
The untiring efforts of Mr. Harry
Kemp, deputy grand regent of Vir?
ginia. In working up recruits for the
Royal Arcanum order in Norfolk and
Portsmouth this week have been well
rewarded, judging by the number of
applications helms turned into the dif?
ferent councils and the IWt he tins on
the string making anxious inquiries.
He bus already secured twenty-one
candidates to be initiated next week
and many others will follow. Grand
Deputy Barry Kemp visited James
Monroe Council, of Portsmouth, on bist
Wednesday night at a large gathering.
Mr. Kemp spoke on the success of the
order, which was received with loud
applause. They have several applica?
tions pending, and expect to initiate a
good number by the next meeting.
Campostella council. of Norfolk,
Thursday night held a large and en?
thusiastic me ting. Applications were
presented and there are also several
pending. Grand Deputy Regent Harry
Kemp was present and addressed the
council on the go.nl of the order and
its phenomenal success and increase
all over the United Slates.
Nansemond Council No. t'Tf.. Suffolk.

tio meting hol Friday night. The

ceeded to the Armory Hall and dined

Mr. Kemp is a bustler, and having a
good order to talk about, lie Is not
backward in proclaiming its good
points and fine system, which are re?
cognized by the bcst-poste.t business
men. The order has more than 205,000
members ami an .emergency fund of
over one million and a quarter of dol?
lars, and is considered by some of the
wisest (d.l line Insurance men to be the
best assessment fraternal insurance or?
der in existence. Brother Kemp has
just received a letter from Supreme
