The Virginia Conduit Railway Company
Is in earhest ln their endeavbrs to have
the opportunity of securing the fran

RESULT OFINQUEST.
Barnett Died frotn a Wouml Inflictcd
by Kliiales
Coroner Taylor and a regularly em
panc-lled- jury held an inquest yesterday
lnornhig at the coroner's oltiee. in thj City
Hall, over the remains of W. F. Barnett,
tire young man wlio died at Virginia Hos?
pital Thursday from a pistol-shot wound
received from W. J- Rhodes on last Mon

Orfi ?? r Zttitiner. ot" the First Police Ols
Dr. Parker stated that he had seen Bar
;:ett at the Virginia Hospital on Monday.
'ho.rtly after 12 M. and that he found a
..'.'-'....-shot... wound ia the cheek. whlcV
had been "packed with gauze and band

When this was done a violent hemor?

eonsciousness. The hemorrhage was stop
;...'?!, but the patient faileo to rally and
died in :i few minuteo.
At 5:30 o'clock. Dr. PariTCr said that he
made a post-'mortem cxamihatibn and
discovered that the ball had taken a
slightly ilownward course and in its pas.
sage had seyered the internal carotid
artery anu lodged in the bone behind
tho ear. By some effort of nature, tbe
hemorrhage from the broken artery was
stopped, possibly by a blood-clot und he
was prevented frorn bleeding to death
until the ambulance arrived. and the
gauze was pushed in the wound.
The gauze acted as a stbpper aud plug
ged up the artery so lhat the injured
man continued' to live.
None of these facts were known until
after 'the post-mortem. and as a. fupture
of this large artery always causes .death
in a few minutes, it was not supposed
that such was the ~ase.
The other witnesses tcstificd to what
they knew of the cause of the shooting
and" it seemed that Rhodes had threatened
to shoot Barnett for making appoint
ments to meet certain persons at hts
(Rhodes*) home. but no one had heard
Rhodes say that Barnett' had been inti
mate with Mrs. Rhodes.
The verdict of the jury was that Frank
Pa'iiett oa.me to his dcatli^from a pistol
shot wound; inflictcd by W. J. Rhodes.
The funeral of Barnett will be con?
ducted from I'nion Station Methodist
chureh this afternoon at 3:30 o'clock and
the interment will be in Oakwood.

FRIDAY'S DOCKET
IN POLICE COURT
The Great Dispenser Keeps a Straight
Line.
A LAW NOT OFTEN OBSERVED.
Boys Who Take Material from Citizens'
Yards for Bon-l'ires aic Guilty as
Thieves Under thc Law and
Must be Punislicil.
Thbugh the Docket in the Police Court
produced little money and few surprises
It was Justice .John's busy day, for the
long list of civil cases on Friday always
gives him hard work and something to
think about.
The Great Dispenser came puffing into
court yesterday as noisily as a steam
tug- with a heavy scow in tow, the frost
on hls breath making rifts in the ara
bient atmosphere like tiie Richmond
Howitzers" guns firing a sulute in Capi?
tol Square. Hc had as little regard for
people standlug in the way as a colored
nurse with a baby carriage, and cut
straight through the crowd like Ihe city
ambuiance on a hot call to the First
District. only turning from u straight
line when he encountered one of the b.g
pillars in the basement hallway. and
looked as it he might try conclusions
with that.
THINGS IX HIS MAIL.
There were no kid gloves, corporation
bonds, bon bons. complimentary checks,
wedding invitations or other such things
in his mail as his admirers are wont to
send him. and he was ready ut once to
enlighten the morning class in the bou
doir on the current events of the world.
He was promptly on the bench and
brought down the gavel with a blow that
rung the cchoes in the vaulted White
Chamber and promptly called for the bill
of fare.
THERE IX A FLOCK.
Mary Jones and Bettie Jones and Josie
Jones" answered to the roll. Mary Jones
wus the blackest sheep in the llook. Jo?
sie charged Mary with breaking open
her trunk and stealing thifty-five cents
and an apron. The evidence being the
fact that the trunk was broken and
Mary was the only one in the house. but
the Great Dispenser didn't "propose to
have niggers leave home and spend their
time galioping over the country ull day
and then . >rne back and accuse some
other nigger of robbing them."
- Mary got off with Josie. but with Bet?
tie she fured not so well. She stole a
cbunt.rpane from Bettie and the officer
found it in pawn. and Mary will spend
thirty days in jail.
John Roland. colored, was arrested
while trying to sell an old-gold brace?
let and charged with being a suspicious
character. The bracelct was remined to
asceftaih ownership and the negro dis
charged, hc claiming to have found it
and his father corroborating his state?
rnent.
STEALING UNDER THE LAW.
Casper Wendlinger and Aniile Wend- i
iinger, boys of highly-respectable par?
ents, were under the charge "thut they
did take, steal and carry away a lot ot
wood. the property of J. H. Stout," on
Second street.
Tin- evidence was that tbe Tioys cntere I
the 'back yard and took tnree sti-.-ks .,:" ;
wood with which they built a flre in the
?bottom, the rendezvous of -'thc f.ang." j
Tlie boys are far from b?lng common
thieves and did not steal tne wood for
gain. but it is a specics ot lawlessness, j
whilo very irequent a-niong boys !n R'c'a
inond. was too grave an offence aga ns:
the law to be pas?d lightly or with a
simple fine. yet he desired *o prevent
giving them jail punishmeni. '?:
The father readily cpnsented to wfclp
them in the presence of an offierr of the
court, and this was the sentence.
Arthur Wendlinger, white. and James
Bullock, colored, were fined .$2 for throw?
ing rocks in the street
Henry Bcnninger. for being drunk tn
the street. was tined Sl and costs.
THI". RHODES CASE:
The case' of William J. Rhodes. for
shooting and kiliing Frank Barnett, wss
called ahd continued ono day to await th-.
decision of the coroner's jurv. then ab.uc
to he called together.
A QUBSTIOX OF LAW.
The question arose as lo wiiethr the
a'-r-'i-ofi would have ro be present at the
coroner's examination. His counsel. M
lf. M. Smith. Jr.. said the law required it.
Justice John said if it was law it was not
often observed. Mr. Smith exonssed a
desire tb say'e his client the ordeal ,'if
possible. but did not sse how he could ask
it. The prisoner was turned over to th=>
City Sergeanr. and was taken immediatc-ly
to tho coroner's room.

S3.it59.62:
Presictent Rospweli Page says that tho
health of the boys i.s good. There. was
one death during the year 1S0S from con?
sumption. He says that during the greater
part of the period covered by thls report
the institution has been without any con
tracts from which the labor of the boys
could be turned into a peeuniary benefit. A
contract has been made for the working
of the boys in the making of shirts. w-hich
in the judgment of the Board is a proper
contract, provision being made therein
for hours of recreation and study and for
the cbservance of all holidays. Th s con?
tract is to go into operation on the 31st
day of January. 1900. but .ts the eaui_
ircent te to be paid for from the labor of
the boys, it wil! be months before the
profits "can be otherwise utillzed.
. The Legisiature is asked to appropriate
the sum cf $3,000 to pay the institution out
of debt.
