tion,, calling ?a .th? ? Soar4 o? Public
Works for information concerning the as?

ginia. Mr. Gravely spoke in favor of

lution was adopted,

ed a resolution, authorizing Hon. E. F.
Cromwell, of Norfolk county, to draw the

tion was referred.
The hour of i o'clock having arrived,
the .House went into the consideration.
of the special order, which was the Parks
employers' liability bill.
Mr. 'McRae, of Petersburg, offered' the
following amendment to the bill.
"This? act shall not apply to the case
of an officer* or agent of a railroad, who

Mr. McAllister, of Bath, was -then recog?
nized and spoke in opposition to the
Mr. McAllister noticed briefly the points
advanced on Wednesday by Mr. Shelton,
of Louisa, who spoko in favor of the bill.
He then discussed the measure at some
length, undertaking to establish that there
was no necessity for its passage.
He said his people did not ask this
legislation, and he did not wish, to see
the employes put in a position to destroy
the railroads of the State.
Mr. Fitzpatrick, of Nelson, spoke briefly
in favor of the bill, and was liberally
applauded by the House.
Hon. S. L. Kelley, of Richmond City,
followed Mr. Fitzpatrick In an able and
eloquent argument in advocacy of the
Mr. Kelley pointed out the extreme dan?
gers to which railroad employes were
subjected, and contended that it was
but fair and right.that when Injured by the
negligence or incompetency of a feliow
servant, they should be permitted to re?
cover against the company.
He called attention to the fact, that the
opponents of the measure were willing to
admit that the principle in\-olved was
right; but that the Parks bill did not go
far enough. Mr. Kelley said that if the
principle was a just one, the Parks bill was
right and just, as fur as Jt went. He
then produced a resolution from a con?
vention of railroad employes, asking for
the passage of the bill.
Mr. Keliey closed his speech with a.
beautiful peroration appealing to the
House to listen to the voice of the unpro?
tected employes, and pass the bill in its
original form. Mr. Kelley was several
times interrupted by applause.
At this juncture, Mr. Price, of Washing?
ton county, offered a substitute for the
Parks bill, and the House ordered it to
Hon. Edmond Hubard, of Buckingham,
was then recognized, and delivered a
vigorous speech against the passage, of
Mr. Hubard did not think there was
any general demand for its passage, nor
was he able to discover the necessity.
He thought some of the utterances of
the friends of the measure had been ex?
treme a,nd violent, ?
Mr. Hubard said the bill was undem?
ocratic, in that it tended towards pater?
nalism. He contended also that it was
against public policy and would "bank?
rupt every railroad in the State and
paralyze the energies of trade."
At the conclusion of Mr. Hubard's re?
marks. Captain Parks, the pa Iron of the
bill, was recognized, in order that ne might
have the floor when the matter comes up
at 1 o'clock to-day. He will close the
debate, and the vote will be taken nt _
o'clock. There is practically no doubt
about the bill passing the House by a

IN POLICE COURT
Prompt Dealing With Bad Characters
? Secures Peace.
WHY JUSTICE JOHN WAS -SAD.
James Burrell, Colored, Offers "to Sol?
a GohJ. "Watch lor~ Seventy-Five
Cents arid is linn In ?Gypsy
Jack a Slave to Drink.
There has never been a time since sixty
five when there was so large a floating
population in Richmond as now and it
speaks well for the police .force that
there is so little disorder. The average
number of cases in the Police Court is
for below the normal.
The tramp ordinance and the prompt
manner of dealing with vagrants and
suspicious characters has much to do
with" the quiet and peace of the city.
The police court docket yesterday morn?
ing was as short as a Henrico rabbits tail,
and while all the regulars were In place,
in the Big White Chamber, the coiU tem?
perature outside; reduced the audience in
the dress circle to a corporal's guard, and
the duties of 'the day were performed
without a;ty special stage settings.
* The Great Dispenser lias been especially
impressed in the past week with the
degeneracy of man and the unreliabality
o? the period.
He was sad over the reported death of
Goebel and retired > to tho twudolr ten
minutes after the first case was called,
to ?ieruse tho tributes to his memory,
and looked as dazed us a man caught
on the fender of a street-car, when he
read In the morning papers of the gritty
Kentuckian qualifying as Governor of the
State, and declared, with naive earnest?
ness that Goebel was "the gamest corpse
that ever walked" and glared around
like a 'tiger despoilt?d of her cubs, to try
and locate the man who told h'cm tiie
night before that "Goebei is dead.".
The day's docket didn't furnish revenue
enough to pay for the ink the Great Dis?
penser used in making the flourish to his
signature when he signed the papers for
William St. John,- (Gypsy Jack), stood
grizzled and grimed before the bar as
grim as a grenadier, his chin depressed,
and looking from under his eyebrows at
the Great Dispensar, in expectation of
what he had been promised a few days
before if he came back aft-ain under CO
days for drunkenness.
He said not a word when the sentence
of 30 days on th? chain gang was an?
nounced as his portion.
No greater slave e'er y.-ork?Q in the
Roman'galleys than is Gypsy Juck a slave
to drink. '

the charge of bsing a suspicious charac?

The negro claimed to have bought the
watch from a p.iwn broker. The officer
took tho watch to the nown broker and
he declared he had never had a watch of
that description in his stock.
Burrell was held for ten days tinder the
charge to admit of investigation how he
came by the watch. ,
Fred Gepheart was charged with being
a vagrant, and begging on the street, and
was dismissed on the promise of seeking
some other abode.
