ITEMS OF INTEREST
The Jamestown Ter-Centennial is to be held on the shores and waters of Hampton Roads, near the cities of Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Newport News, Va., April 26 to Nov. 30, 1907. It commemorates the founding of the first English settlement in America, at Jamestown in 1607. Contemporaneous with the Exposition will be held on the waters of Hampton Roads the greatest naval pageant ever witnessed in the world, in which every type of war vessel from the navies of all foreign nations will participate. Another feature will be the international military encampment, in which detachments of troops of European countries will unite with the soldiers of the United States in a series of drills, maneuvers, parades, etc. More than twenty-five exhibit palaces are now nearing completion. Another feature will be the Government pleasure pier, extending two thousand feet into Hampton Roads. At either end it will be surmounted with light-towers and a working exhibit of wireless telegraphy.
The report of Director North of the Census Bureau, in regard to the finances of cities of eight thousand inhabitants and over, says: "The importance of municipal statistics may be noted from the following facts: The indebtedness, less sinking-fund assets, of the one hundred and forty-eight cities containing over thirty thousand inhabitants in 1903 was $1,106,821,651, and of the one hundred and fifty-one cities in 1904 was $1,228,216,933. The indebtedness of the cities of the latter group increased during the year 1904 by $110,083,797. The indebtedness of cities containing eight thousand to thirty thousand inhabitants in 1903 was $173,718,313, and the last statistics compiled recorded an annual increase of $10,098,961. The aggregate for the two classes of cities in 1903 was $1,280,539,964."
