WORK OF THE POLICE
DURING CARNIVAL
Major Howard Speaks in Highest Praise of
His Men?Perfect System Under Which
They Worked?No City in the
Country Could Have Done
Any Better.
The good work or the Police Depart
Oient during the Carnival was most re?
markable rrom the small numbpr of ar
PSSXB made.
"The number or arrests made by tne
police ls r.o criterion of the effectiveness
of the department," said Major Howard.
"The work tliat tolls in a policeman is (
his ahiluy to keep down crime. Because
a policeman has few arrests to hls credit
ou thr; blotter is r.o indication that he. ls
not a worthy member of the force, nor
does it mean nc<-cssarily that when an
olllcer has a long list of arrests to His
credit that he is a good officer.
"You take a house that ls ovorrun
with rats that are destroying everything.
Tut a eat ln that home. Tho eat wlll
catch few of the rats probably, but tbe
larger number of rats will leave in lear
ol Uie cut, and as long as the eat remains
tin rats wlll keep away.
EAW-BREAKERS GET AWAY.
"So, w ben a good policeman .makes His
appearance in a bad ncighborhood the
law-brcakcrs get away and crime is held
down. Richmond has the reputation all
over the country of being the worst place
tor crooks. Thos? that do come here
are almost invariably caught, and in re?
cent years the number of noted1 criminals
who have paid Richmond a vi&t has
been few indeed. They know what our
tk-tectives and police force is and they
stoer clear ?f the city.
"\Ye have the grcatc-st trouble with our
?local peity criminals: There aro no real
crooks here. \Ye have a number of
raciUi thieves and alleged "bad" men
and boys wbo glvo us a lot of trouble,
but the excellence of our force ls break?
ing up much of the work of these pctty,
unnitc-ur criminals.
"Richmond can do better still by la
creasing its force. so as to give the su
burban and outlying districts of the city
r wldcr protectlon. A few mounted of?
ficers for Lee District and Church Hill
t would also add' to tho offectiveness of
the force. v
SKOTTL.D BE INCREASED.
"As ut present coustitutcd, the force
5s a good one, but, natural'.y, with tho
growth of the city, its police protection
bhould also grow."
Major Howard said that tne work done
by the fifiy special oGicers during tho
Carnival was moet effective and that
?onie of the va.cn detailed from the va
riouK dtetricts to do detcctive work was
of ihe best.
"The men wiio did work . in 'plaln
clothes' dwervc credit." said Majcr How?
ard1. Each man put his energy Into the
work. They watched theo trains and.
tejrt in toycb with every suapiclous
looking person who came here, and not
uxtfii tho* ware satiafiftd tliat thes* par*
sons were all right did their eurveUlanco
cease.
"Araos, Wernrr, Folkes, Lamkln, Wilt
shire, Marrin. MeMahon and Schlief each
are entitled to praise.
PERFECT SYSTEM.
"The system by which these men
worked was perfect. They always kept
in touch with jitadquarters and with
each other ar.d were all under the di
roction of Captain Tomlinson. Had any
cases of emergency ariseen he wou'.d
have known just where to have reached
his man.
"In every big- crowd were always founti
two or three of thc plain-clothcs men,
while the specials had their eyes on all
that was going on.
"Of course, the experienced, seasonefi
old reiiahles Gibson. Wren and Hall did
jooman service. The two former con
cfentrated most of tnelr efforts at the
Horse-Show, whero the big crook would
.aturally have gravitatt-d had he made
his appearance here. They also worked
th'i noighborhoeds where trouble was
most likely lo spring up, and the effect
of their presenee was remarkable.
"1 doubt very much if any other city
in the country could have handled the
blg croivds as we did."

OPENS THIS WEEK
Iontague to Make tha Opening
Address.
COUPLE TO MARRY IN PUBLIC.
They Have Been Selected, bui Nooody Knows
Who They Are, and Qrcat lurioilty
H?3 Been Aroused?Some
of the Exhibits.
FARMVILLE, VA, Oct. 19?Special.?
Tho gates to the Farmville Fair will be
thrown open to the expected multitudo
next Wednesday, Oetober "3d.
The opening address will be delivr.rcJ
at 10 o'clock in the main building by At?
torney-General Montague, and it is ^afe
to predict that he will stand before a
larger crowd than he will again have op?
portunity or addressing during the pres?
ent campaign. Of course, Mr. Monta
gue's address will be noh-political, and
yet he will impress our people.
Tho agricultural part of the Farmville
Exposition is not expecten to come up
to the standard- of past fairs held' in this
place, and yet it will be interesting to
see. There will be no hors-2-show, and
the races will be as good as= are usually
witnessed at district fairs, and there
will be interesting tilting at the tourna?
ment.
PUBLIC WEDDING.
Among the outdoor attractions none
affords the anticipation ot' greater pleas?
ure than the pubiic marriage, which will
be solemnized in front of the grand stand'
at the race-track on Thursday, the sec?
ond day. Such a marriage has never be?
fore occurred in Farmville, nor in the
State, so far as the recollection of your
correspondent goes, but once, and" thea
at the Richmond Exposition, some twelve
years ago. .
The contracting parties for the fair
marriage are well-known young people of
an adjoining county. Their names, tho.igh
known to a few, havo not been given to
the pubiic, thus heightening the curios
ity of the femihinity throughout this
section. It is stated authoritatively that
Rev. Joshua S. Hunter, of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, will bo tlie officiating
clergyman on this novel occasion, which
may be taken as an assuranee of the
prospective bride's d'enomimitional per
suaslon. The couple will be accompanied
to the grand stand" by four young gen?
tlemen selected for that purpose.
MERCHANTS' EXHIBIT
The merchants generally of the town
will make exhibits of their 20 3dJ r.niV
wares, and farmers from this and adjoin?
ing counties are already entering for
premiums samples of tobacco and other
products of the soil.
The Roanoke Band will be here three
days with sixteen pieces, which will
furnish the necessarv music.
Messrs. J. M. Venable, A. A. Cox and
W. XV. Jackson, the well-known horse
raen, promise that the races will be the
best ever seen here. The committee have
been working earnestly for the ontdnor
attractions, and have succeeded in se-.
'' ''."?'- AL'L " - '? -':-'" ? . : . ' :
curing some of the very beet. At the Op?
era House each night will bc an attrac?
tion of the hig-hest merit.
The linest fruit and stock v/ill bc, on
exhibition, the manufacturers .-md i.gents
of agricultural macbines, the owners,
riders and drivers of thc best horses are
gotting readV for the exciting contests,
and not the least, the pretty girls from
thc country and the town will be on hand
to contribute to the success of this most
interesting occasion.
Prof. Kabrich, of Philadelphia, has
beon engaged by the Fair Association to
make three balloon aseensions during the
fair. It is said of Prof. Kabrich that ho
has this year broken all records in this
country iri point of altitudina successes.

ATTRACTIONS FOR
? GREAT EXPOSITION.
Richmond Manufacturers and Merchants Are
Urged to Secure Proper Representation
for the Occasion at Charleston.
Tho importance of securing proper rep?
resentation at the South Carolina inter
State and West lndlan Exposition, which
will be held in the city of Charleston
from December 1, 1901 to Juno 1, 19V-, is
now securing attention from the mem?
bers of the Richmondi Chamber of Com?
merce.
President L. Z. Morris, of that organi?
zation, at its meeting last Thursday
evening. urged the manufacturers ot
Kichmond to make an exposiiion Of th-Mr
products to awaken interest in this mat?
ter.
The Charleston Exposition is assuming
a wider scope than was at iirst expect?
ed and its success seems assured. Xho
part to be taken by the West Indian
cduntries will be prominent and will show
the wonderful resources of thls country's
new possessions. The Philippine Isi
ands, Mexieo and the Central American
and South American nations will havo
excellent representation. ln addition to
thls, it is proposed to remove many of
the most interesting features of the Paris
Exposition to Charleston to be exhibited
during this fair.
ITS SCOPE.
The scope of the Exposition is thus very
broad, and while it was designed pri
rnarily to tell the world the story of the
g:eai revolutlon in commereial cdnditions
wnich has taken place in the South dur?
ing the last o.uarter of the nlnetcenth
century, it ls also designed to do far more
than this. One oi* the main features of
the Exposition will be a textile building.
m which an object-Iesson will be given of
the wonderful development of cotton
manufactures in the South in the past
twenty years. Liberal space will bo given
to exhibit? of agrlcultural products pe?
culiar to the South, such as tea. hemp
and tobacco; also to home exhibits of
r.cn-agriculturai products, such as phos
pnates; to exhibits of forestry, of lish and
lisheries.
The varied resources cf each county in
the State will be expioited in detail, and
the exhibit of live stock will be especial?
ly. fine. The good-roads exhibit will prove
of paramount importance to the people of
