A mass meeting of the alumni of the University of Virginia was held in Washington Monday, to take action in regard to the rebuilding of the burned portions of the college. Secretary of the Navy, Herbert, presided and several speeches were made. Resolutions were adopted deploring the conflagration, calling on the alumni and friends of the university for aid, and appointing a committee to organize and raise funds. The faculty of the university has sent out circular letters to the alumni, detailing the fire losses, and pointing out the need of the construction of separate fireproof buildings to replace the library, the rotunda and its wings, and the law school. Letters of sympathy have been received from President Cleveland, Justice Brown of the Supreme Court, and Bishop Keane of the Catholic University.

The total loss from the fire amounts to $346,000. To meet this, there is $58,000 accruing from various sources, so that there is thus need of $288,000 to accomplish the restoration of the buildings.
