The Evening News* PUBLISHED DAILY (EXCEPT SUNDAYS) BT ROB'T B. SMYTHE. Entered In the Postolllce at Harrisonburg a» second-class matter 1 MONDAY, DECEMBER 4. 1899. WIXCHESTEB'S RAILROAD TROUBLES. Winchester business men are making n, pretty large kick against a change of schedule, which is snid to be contemplated by the Southern Railway, to go into effect December 10th. The News-Item of December 1 is disposed to indulge in severe criticism as to the action of the Southern Railway, which is possibly unjust. The Southern runs its trains from Washington to Harrisonburg, and probably fixes its schedule to suit the people it serves. Would it not, therefore, be proper for connecting lines to adjust their schedules so as to make connections without delay to their own truffle? To compel the Soutliern to run its trains on a schedule that *iii suit the connecting lines, the business men of Winchester have made an application to General J. 0. Hill. State Railroad Commissioner. Witii one ■enten...

StnndlnK Up Under Fire Slot the Only Aliainl Regulation in O" llrltlili Army. The "unwritten law" in the British I army which forbids officers from seeking shelter when under fire is not the most absurd regulation of the service. There are other "unwritten laws" which are just as Quixotic, and which lead to just as great mortality among the men who are most valuable to the service. One of them is illustrated by a little known circumstance with regard to the famous "charge of tb* light brigade" at Balaklava. It ia a rule, no less stringent because inofficial, in the British cavalry that, when riding to attack only a certain rate of progress is permissible. The regular formation must be kept up, even though greater speed would minimize the chances of loss, of life. When the Seventeenth and Thir-. teenth hussars were nearing the R...

The fact that Mr. Quay was not here to be presented to the Senate with the governor's credentials deprived the Senate of its chief feature, for it was intended by his friends to try to have him sworn in and to have the ease settled out of hand. The House was the great object of interest for the crowd. From an early hour there was a push and scramble for places in the galleries or even in the corridors.
