the Afternoon nnd u Itcceptioii ut
A'iglit nt tue Virginia Club.
Tho second annual convention of the
Virginia Bankers' Convention met In
the amusement hall of the Y. M. C. A.
yesterday at 12 o'clock, about llfly
prominent bankers being present. Mr.
H. S. Trout, of Koanoke, president of
the association, occupied the cliuir.
After prayer by Uev. Ucverly D.
Tucker, D. D.r of St. Paul's Church.
Capt. W. H. White delivered the ad?
dress of welcome, emphasising the im?
portance of bunking system, and wel?
comed to Norfolk the representatives
of the banks of Virginia. He,suggest?
ed that the association while here need
not think nt ull of "protests." but only
have in mind "days of grace;" that the
only curse the members will have In?
itiated upon them here will be that
which wus referred to by Dickons when
on his visit to tills section?tish and
President Trot replied In a woll-ohos
on speech, bespeultlng for Norfolk u
The president's report was then read,
that official feeling that there has been
a dawn of prosperity and that a reac?
tion has set in In favor of a sound
currency. What Is wanted, he says. Is
a 'ilollur that will be worth Its face
value In ull of the markets of the
world. He noted a gootl condition of
the banking system In Virginia.
After the reading of the secretary's
report, Mr. It. It. Tunsthll, of Norfolk,
wus Introduced, and delivered an ad?
dress on "Paper Currency." He Illus?
trated his remarks with a series of
paper notes, representing the present
paper currency of the country, lie ex?
pressed the opin'^- that us long us the
country has nous (promises to puyj
outstanding, so long will we have In?
stability ami cries. lie thought It was
not the province of tho Government to
go Into the banking business, as it does
in Issuing Its notes or promises to pay.
We cannot, he suggested, say that the
Government will at all times be In posi?
tion to redeem Its notes. He criticised
caustically the Government's "endless
chain" of Issuing and reissuing notes,
which he said depletes the reserve
fund, and us a consequence confidence
is shaken, lie would advise as a rem?
edy for the situation, that the Govern?
ment go out of the banking business
at once, and that sulllclont bonds be
Issued to retire all of the "demand"
notes. The question of money, he said,
should be made one of "business" and
not of "politics;" that we have had too
much of "politics" In It already. lie
did not believe that a deposit of securi?
ties fit' Hie elucidation |>f Natlonnl
llltllk notes llti necessary; that said
Holes can be circulated safely without
a deposit of securities with tho tlov
eminent. He named a number of bank?
ing systems Hint Issued notes on I' i
assets, and a redemption fund for
"fulled" banks. Under the present
system In this country, he said, the
assets of the national banks are tied
up uselessly. He predicted that a
change, for the better In this particular
will surely come. Mr. Tunstall's pero?
ration was strikingly line, and at the
conclusion of his address he was up

Richmond, n vote of thanks was extend?

Convention endorsed the address made
by Mr. Tunstall. and directed that a

Thanks were extended the Y. M. C.
A., the Virginia Club and the Mcrrimu
Club for courtesies.
The President announced the follow?
ing committee on nomthlnlons ?.' ofll

Judge Christian after stating that the
i'b aring House Association of Rich?
mond hud been discussing the question
of a Saturday half holiday, a"-', saying
that he favored It. moved t lint the
Slut-* Legislature be memorialised to
enact a law on the subject.
Mr. C. Hardy seconded the motion,
end read a number of letters received by
I the clerks of the Norfolk National Raiik,
from banks in different cities which had
the law In force, and In which Hie plan
is said to work with success.
Col. Taylor, of Norfolk, said that
while he favored more holidays, the
lack of which was a curse to the Amer?
ican people, yet he wus hot in favor of
the motion as It stood. He thought
that Hie patrons of the banks should
be regarded and this was a great inno?
vation which this community would
disapprove of. The various Industries
of this section called for more hours
rather than shorter hours. He was op?
posed to the half holiday; but favored
more general holiday; for example, the
birthday of General Jackson.
Judge Christian, in reply, said It was
not proposed to make the law obliga?
tory, but simply to give each bank u
legal right to close if it felt so dis?
After some little other discussion the
matter was referred to the Standing
Committee on Jurisprudence, of Which
Judge Christinn is chairman.
The meeting then adjourned until 10
o'clock this morning.
Immediately after adjournment the
members, upon an invitation of '.'?-?
bankers of Newport News, embarked on
a tug at the Iloston steamers wharf
and visited the shipyard at Newport

At least 1.000 people stood In the
cold yesterday afternoon for an hour.
They were patriotic people and stood
there to show their patriotism. The
occasion Was the raising on St. Mary's
Academy, on Holt street, of the Ameri?
can Hag. It was Indeed an act or patri?
otism which led the little fellows'who
attend the school to unfurl "Old Glory"
on a day sol apart as a day of thanks?
giving. The big yard and street In
front of the school were crowded with
people, hundreds of ladles being among
those In attendance.
I Previous to the exercises attending
the Hag raising the pupils of the
Academy, headed by their drum corps,
and followed by the Emerald Uenetlclal
Association and Ancient tinier of Hiber?
nians, paraded tome of the principal
street, the little fellows, by their sol?
dierly beating, presenting a handsome
It wus shortly after :! o'clock when
the drum corps, ranged in front of
the steps, rendered "Auld Lang Syne,"
lifter which Mr. M. Gleniidn came for?
ward and said that while he represent?
ed the teachers of the school, the occa?
sion recalled Ills boyhood days, when
he attended school In the same build?
ing. He spoke for ten minutes, and was
followed after the singing of "Ameri?
ca" by the school, by Kcv. Father W.
Father McKeeferey spoke of the love
of Catholics for our common country,
a thing natural to them, and a part
of their religious teachings. He liked
tti see a man who loved his country,
for it showed that his heart wus there.
He said he was doing no Injury to any?
one when he asserted that no one was
truer te his country or more patriotic
than the Catholics.
He said the Institutions of tills coun?
try were In accord with the teachings
of the Church. He gloried In and loved
the Constitution of the United States
It is natural thai Catholics should love
the United States of America, he snid.
Father .McKeeferey delivered a mas?
terly oration, quoting history lo show
that Catholics were a patriotic people
and that they loved their country.
As the children sang the "Star Span?
gled Banner," the Hag was hauled up
and a mighty shout arose from the
Judge Brooke following, took as bis
theme that lite history of this country
touglit that the fundamental principle
of American citizenship was that every
man was nt liberty to pursue his own
happiness In his own way. provided he
recognized Ihe equal rights of his fel?
low man. nnd that In a country where
this principle prevailed It was Impossi?
ble for the youth of the country to fnil
to recognize that the true doctrine of
personal liberty was ta claim one's own
rights with courage and to recognize
those of others with generosity.
At the conclusion of Judge Brooke's
address the drum corps played Ameri?
ca, and the exercises were nt nn end.
The pole was presented to the school
by Master Lester Craves, son of Mr.
W. A. GravcB. It is surmounted by n
brass ball in which are inscribed the
names of every pupil of the Academy.
The flag was purchased by the pupils.

I Notwithstanding the failure of Chief
King to obtain information as to the
whereabouts of the two faro dealing
boxes purloined from the desk at the
police-station last Saturday night Just
after the raids on two alleged gambling
houses, and his acknowledgment that he
could not get at'the bottom of the mnt

Yesterday Chief of Police King Issued

Eustwood and Richardson for failure
to provide themselves with uniforms.
Detective Richardson, however, started
out and succeeded In getting together |
the blue coat and brass buttons and
was allowed to go on street duty last
night at 7 o'clock. It Is safe to say
that no man on the police force ever |
attracted more attention than the ox
detective in his uniform. When he
appeared at the roll-call he wore a hat
several sizes too large and when one
of the men touched It with his club
the hat fell over Richardson's head,
hiding Ills face from view. The over?
coat lie wore was obtained from ex
Policeman E. B. Williams, und It look?
ed as if Richardson, who is not a large
man, had a holster tied around his
waist to till out the garment. It was
Indeed a comical sight. Richardson
