LOCATION OVERCOMES RATE ; Member of Firm Decides That His House Will Probably Establish Branch Here Secretary Mathewson Resigns From Commercial Club. [ From Tuesday's Dally. ] A wholesale grocery house will probably be established in Norfolk within the very near future. This was the statemtnt of a representative of a wholesale grocery house who vlslted- Norfolk a few days ago for the pur pose of insectlng the field and who left town determined that it would be to the advantage of his house to estab lish a branch in this city. He will bo back here the latter part of this week. The repcresentatlve , whose name and whose house have not been given out , made an Inspection of Norfolk in com pany with D. Mathewson , secretary of the Commercial club and It is the belief of Mr. Mathowson that the wholesale establishment will be placed here. The representative , while here , In vestigated the freight rates under which his house would have to oper ate and he declared that , while the rates arc not all that his house might desire , yet the location of the town more than offsets what disadvantages there wore in this direction , and ho believed that his flim would come. Secretary Mathewjon Resigns. Mr. Mathowson , who has acted secretary of the Commercial club for some time , handed his resignation to the directors of the club some time ago , because of outside work which will keep him from Norfolk much of the time , and his resignation is now effective.

Mr. Mathowson , who leaves for South Da kota on business , will be unable to bo present at this meeting. Suggests a Public Park.

Ho says that the M. & O. rail road company 1ms five acres of land north of their tracks and abutting on the Nor'thfork river , which ho believes the city might take stops to get for park purposes. The mooting this evening will beheld hold at the city hall and a largo at tendance Is desired by the directors. LIGHTNING AT MILLER BARN.
