COMMISSION OF FISHERIES' ACTION At monthly meeting of the State Commission of Fisheries in Norfolk Wednesday, after routine matters were disposed of, the survey and report of Surveyor Ruediger on the James river watch-house matter was accepted and hled. Twoof the watch-houses have already been constructed, at a coat of $1,000 each-one near Horsehead and one near Point of Shoals. The third one will be erected near Brown's Shoals. All reporta say there never was known such quantities of oysters in the James as this season. Iteport of Surveyor Ruediger and Surveyor Anderson on the ocean side of Northampton was also accepted, and inspectors there notified to inform tres passing planters to va-jate.

Business Talked on Boats.?Four Days of Water Travcl for Publishers. After an afternoon and evening of intercourse and pieasure in Kichmond, at 7 a. m. Wednesday of laat week half a hundred scribes, with their ladiea, embarked on ateamer Pocahontas for thetripdowntheJan.es. While view ing the hiatorie James, Mr. Weisiger of the Old Dominion peraonally con dueting the tour, buaineaa aeaaiona were held and committeea named. Norfolk was reached in the afternoon. After luncheon the memhers were given a trolley excuraion to Cape Henr>- and Virginia Beach. Accordinu to program arranged by W. McDonald Lee, a former Preaident of the aaaociation, aome forty or more of the newspapcr ladiea and gentlemen boarded ateamer Thuraday morning, stopped an hour at Old Point and then aailed for historic York town. The com? pany was Rraced by the preaence of many ladiea, and jovial Wilkins Mat thewa, secretary of the Commission of Fisheriea. added much to the trip. Here. under the shadow of the great tnonuinent which commemoratea the surrender of Cornwallis, the busieat and tinal aesaion waa held. The followinjf oflicera were elected | President, Judge C. J. Campbcll. of Amherst; vice-preaident. Walter E. AddiBon. of Lynchburg; secretary, J. I.. Hart, of Farmville; treasurer, E. G. Moseley. of Danyille; hiatorian. Miaa Bertha (Jray Kobinson, of Orange. Resolutions on the loas which the Statu of Virginia suffered through the death of Senator John W. Daniel were adoptcd. a copy of which will be eent to the family of the late senator. a !et ter of sympathy was also forwarded itev. K. H. Beazley, treaaurer of the association, whoae wife is very ill. Kesolutions thanking the Virginia Navigation Company for the uae of their ateamer Pocahontas, on which the aesociation made the trip from Kichmond to Norfolk; Mr. W. T.

Williams. of the Roanoke Times, for the active work and intereat he took while in the chair, were adopted. The only tragedy that viaited the scribca camc when John Spencer. of the Ncwport News Times-Herald, lost his hat, the head piece being waftcd away by the cold breueesof ChesapcaWe bay. Luncheon was served just before Yorktown was reached. and the way watermelons disappeared spoke well for the inward capacity of the editors. Leavng Yorktown in the afternoon anothcr short cruise was taken and at 7 o'clock in the cvenint; the party dis cmbarked at Willoughby Spit and boardcd special cars which took them toOceanView, where they spent the night. At the resort the members had Jinner and whilcd away the time by dancinjr and taking in the amusements that the park afTordcd. Friday morning all embarked for the beautiful town of Onancock. The ride up the bay was moat delightful. An huur was spent in witnessing the men liadcn iloet catch thousands of fertiiirer lish. Thia was probably the most inter csting sight the up-country people had L'ver secn in watcr-life. At Onancock in the afternoon the hospitable citizens, headed by Mayor "Lon" Doughty and Jno. S. Waples, with a number of automobiles, were in waiting to receive the newspaper fra ternity, which was here augmented by W. R. Rowe and sister and Dr. J. B. Hodgkin, of Irvington. and Jno. w! Edmonds and son, of the Peninsula Knterprise. No plaee could have done more oropened.their hearts wider than this lovely town of Accomac. The vis itors were received, domiciltd and then flirted for miles in automobiles through the great potato country. At 7 p. m. me ladies ?of the town had spread in the Baptist church a feast that the epicu rean Lucullus might well balk at. After this all repaired to the beautiful old colonial home of Mr. and Mrs. L. D. T. Quinby, the local cditor and his "boss". Here speeches were indulged in, and a general hand-shaking and introduction enstiod. Many prominent men from other parta of the county were present to welcome the guests, among them Dr. Mapp, G. Walter Mapp, School Supcrintendent G. G. Joynes and Colo nel Roy White. Miss Marie C. Duncan made a "strike" with the bachelors of the party by the dexterous manner in which she whisked around in her auto mohilA In saying good night, all the press "boys"and "girls" voted this last the most enjoyable of all the very pleasant annual scssions.

SWANSON CERTAIN TO GET 6IG KONOR. Governor Mann Will Si^n His Conv mission as Senator Soon. It ia difticult to think of Claude A. Swanson, freah and young and vigoroua as he ia, aa going to th. United Statea Senate an older man than were Sena tors Daniel and Martin when they don ned the toga. Yet itiatrue. When, in December next, he advancea to the bar of the Senate on the arm of Senator Martin, and takea the oath of office. he will have diatanced the ages at which that ceremony waa performed by hia colleague and hia illustrioua predecee sor. Thia will even be true when Gov? ernor Mann aigna hia commiaaion about two week a hence. Senator Martin waa not quite forty eight when he entered the Senate, auc ceeding the late General Eppa Hunton, who had been aelected for the short term created by the death of John S. Barbour. Born the laat day of March. 1862, Claude A. Swanson haa celebrated hia forty-eighth birthday since his retire ment from the Governor'a chair. His early atruggles are so well known to the people of Virginia that, again it ia difficult to realize that thirty yearahave paaaed since he alternately worked and atudied to gain an education. From weiKhing augar and measuring applea to a acat in the higheat deliberative body in the world ia not auch a far cry in American politica, eapecially when the labor and sacrifice were for the pur poae of aecuring the learning craved aa a basis for high achievement.

It appears from some of the explana tions offered by other officials that the express compahies are not actuated by a vulgar desire for money in maintain mg their present schedule of charges, but by a desire to keep apart what is distinctively express matter and what i? freight.

[From Kirhmoml Virmnian.l No man'a character ia ao high, no man'a record so Hawleaa, no man's mo tive ao pure that there will not be found the voice of calumny toquestion.amirch, and auspect. There are alwaya handa of hate reaching from the mire. Pow srless to rise, degrmdation aeeka alwaya to reduce all thinga to iu own level. Failure alwaya afforda a libel on auc cess, and vice justifies itself with the alander of virtue. These thinga are but the impotent efforts of the underworld at rccognition. They are the vapora that riae from an uncovered ceaapool, harmleas unless breathed. They are the poisons of the sewer, deadly in them aelvea but innocuoua unleaa aaaimilated. But to give theae thinga an artificial value, to deal in them, to apread them in the way, ia akin tocriminal careleaa ness. To flnd for them a vehicle through which to deal an injury; to stir and direct them to the working of harm is to give a wound and to atand aponaor for a apeciea of alander that no aelf re apecting community will tolerate in ai lence. [Referring to the unfounded chargee againat the head of the Associ sted Charities, the "Virginian" contin uea:J The consequences are that a noble work haa been arrested. and the tongue of acandal aet running againat ita name and purpose; that an able and devoted man has been put to an ignominy of which the most sweeping vindication ia powerleaa to remove the atain, ?and with no other basia than a fabric of Hea and envy and vengeful hatred. Character is a thing of too long a growth to be lightly attacked or wan tordy jeopardized. It is no plaything for goasip. nor football for prejudice. The circumatances of thia caae ahouid make a leason for all inclined ao to uae lt in reckleaa diaregard not only .f the reputationof othera, but ultintately and inevitably of that of themaelvea. As soon as you do anything out of the ordinary you are either hooted or con demned. because people are such slaves of conformity and rule. I didn't do any harm. I am not going to be one of those who do things because othera do them ril try to be right, and braveand honest. Some people can't be good, and polite or honest except by a setof rules; and thoae same rulea were probably made by some poor old soul who died before rail road traina, or telegraph, or telephonea. or wirelesF, or autoinobileh were mad.?. His rules were aa siliy as the candie lightused in making them. We are making rulea now underhappier, richer and more enlightened conditions. - Bus ter Brown. ICE! ICE! (CE!
