IS NOT IN FAVOR
OF THE CHAPLAINS
Religious Herald Not Inclined
to Aid In Getting "Jus?
tice" to Those in Navy.
Tho Religious Herald, tho organ of the
Baptists of Virginia, declines to grant tho
request of a number of Its constituents to
vso such Influence 03 It may havo with
the Virginia representatives ln Congress
to secure "Justice" for a number of Bap.
tlst? navy chnpIeinB.
Recently tho editora of the Herald have
heer In receipt of several communications
colling upon It to> take some action. Re?
- cent military legislation, It Is said, has
discriminated against Uie navy chaplains,
and the Herald Is asked to interest itself
ln tho matter. But the Herald declines to
do so, and states its reasons in no un?
certain fashion, declaring that thero is
a vast humliuggery about tho chaplain
business. Tho editorial says in part:
Now, thero havo been many noble chap?
lains?men who counted not their lives
dear unto themselves that they might
serve their comrades nnd honor their
Lord. And yet. In tho very nature of the
cose, tho chaplain ls an official of the gov?
ernment, and there'Is nothing which will
tako the heart out of religious service so
promptly/nnd effectively as the atmos?
phere arfu spirit of officialdom. There Is
vast humbuggery about this chaplain bus?
iness, certainly in . time of peace. All
sorts of political wires are pulled In order
to secure an appointment. Too frequently
men who have failed ln other directions
find comfortable hcrths ln these chaplain?
cies. The religious service which these
chaplans render ls too often merely for?
mal and perfunctory. Drop in at the
opening of either houso of Congress and
observe tho attendance at the opening
prayer. A few Senators or. Representa?
tives, as the case may be, standing list?
lessly and Inattentively, and a hastily
mumbled petition, to which no one seems
tu pay the least attention. Plainly, there
Is very llttlo heart In the business.
If wo did not have this governmental
meddling? with religion, the various reli?
gious' sects would gladly mako all needful
provision for the spiritual needs of sol?
diers and sailors, Senators and Represent?
atives. As a matter of fact, It Is truo
that the most vital and efficient religious
work done In our late war with Spain was
ione by voluntary organizations.
With theso views of the situation, wo
feel constrained to decline to' use any
Influence which wo might possibly have
tu secure any legislation which tends to
perpetuate tho chaplaincy business. It Is,
as wo bellovo, utterly unnecessary, inef?
fective, and In Its very essence subversivo
o? liberty of conscience.

G. W. KOINER TALKS
Says Virginia Will Do Herself
Proud at the St, Louis
Hon. G. "W. K?lner, president of the
Louisiana Purchase Exposition of Vir?
ginia, when asked yesterday what Vir?
ginia would do at the Exposition, said:
"We propose to display ns extensively
0,1 tho npiicprlatlon will admit, tho real
resources of Virginia. While Virginia
reveres her past history from its very
dawn, from tho building on her shore
at Jamestown by the white man the
flm cabin, the first village, the first
church, the first State Capitol on this
contini nt. And from this llttlo colony
o? freo men have gono out millions
of her people until they have reached
tho shores of tho great ocean on the
west. But Virginia will meet and gTeet
her sister States at St. Louis In a great,
friendly contest, where she will be shown
as she Is to-day?her wealth In soil
and mine, in forest and factory. In trans?
portation facilities and markets, ln sa?
lubrity of climate, and unsurpassed ad?
vantage of location. She will show
that on her soil can be grown any prod?
ucts grown in the United States, except
tho tropical, and her great variety of
minerals, wood, grains, grasses, trucks,
vegetables, fruits, the finest ever shown;
tobacco, peanuts; the products of hor
rivers, bay and sea; manufactured prod?
ucts of great skill and magnitudo. These
exhibits will "show what Virginia ls to?
day, and the opportunities that Invite
tho homo seeker, the investor, tho miner,
where mountains of coal and ore and for?
est ore waiting development; the manu?
facturer, where he can secure thousands
of horse power from her streams that
aro now Idle.
"Tho live stock that Virginia will show
will give evidence of tho great oppor?
tunities offered now in Virginia to stock?
men. Her green fields are at tho door
of the eastern markets, and she has the
finest exporting port on her shore.
"We will show that In salubrity of cli?
mate, kindness of soil, facilities In trans?
portation and opportunities for Invest?
ment of capital, Virginia excels them
"les, Virginia will meet her children
thi re. who have wandered 'far from
home,' and invite them to come back as
wtary pilgrims to spend thedr best days
In the land of their fathers."

BILL GOES BY
Gen. Ayers and Others Heard
? In Opposition.
TONEY BILL IS REPORTED
Measure to Sell Municipal Franchises
Moete Approval?Oyster Matter?
Disposed Of?Other Legislation
Of Much Importance. ?
The House Committee on T??anos held
two long eeu-ons yesterday and con?
sidered the bill oBerod by Mr. "White
?head, ot Norfolk, to Impose a tax of
three cents per ton on all ore? mined
in this State, and after many speeches
In opposition the farther consideration
was postponed until Monday, February
10th, at 1? o'clock A. M.
Among those who spoke against the
bill were General Rufu* A. Ayers. o'
Wise; Major ill I* Parrtsh, of Coving
ton; Mr. J. Norment Powell, of "Wythe,
and I. T. Bullett, of Wise.
Thoy all earnestly contended that the
bill would be hazardous to th? mining
Interest- of the Southwest and pleaded
for an adverse t????- The -111 was
postponed on account of death, in the
family of Judge A- A. Phlegar, who do-,
sires to be heard on the subject.
From -what can be gathered, the bill
-arili likely fall In Its present form,
though some measure may be adopted,
placing a specific license tax upon the
mining companies. Senator Barksdaie
offered a bill in the Senate which is
very similar to that of Mr. Whltehe-d.
The fight for the Jamestown appropria?
tion bill will be renewed and oonoluded
before the House Finance Committee at
10 o'clock' this morning, when General
Kltzhugh Lee, presldeat of the companyT
and Hon. J. Taylor EJllyson will speak
for the measure.
A great deal of missionary work has
been done by members In favor of the
bill during the last few days, and those
In charge of the measure are very hope?
ful of Its passage.
In discussing the question as to wheth?
er or not the State" ?jould afford to make
the appropriation, Mr. Gwynn T. Shep
perd. secretary of the company, said last
"Under the new Const?tutlon of Vir?
ginia, all railroad and canal companies
are required to pay to the State treas?
ury 1 per cent, of their gross earnings.
The travel to and from the exposition In
ltwT ? will so Increase tho gross earnings
of the various railroa- ?companies In the
State and those which, will be construct?
ed to occommodxte the travel made
necessary by the exposition, that Instead
of recrelving $300,000 from this source, as
Is estimated by Auditor Marye, the State
will receive at a very conservative esti?
mate, at least $000,000, so that were the
Stato to appropriate $_JO,000, as is asked
for in the. bill how pending before the
Legislature, the Stato will be paid back
In full and have a clear profit of J100,
000 as its portion of tho receipts from
holding the exposition.
The House Committee on Chesapeake
and its Tributaries yesterday dis?
posed of two measures that ha/?'? been
up for several days, and carried the
local bill as to lands In Westmoreland
county over until this morning.
The body reported favorably the till
of Hon. E. C. Jordon, of Frederick, to
require oystermen la the James River,
from Day Point up, to pay ti license tax
Instead of J2 as at present, for the privi?
lege of taking seed oysters from the said
waters. The bill was earnestly fought
by the oystermen. The bill of Mr. Ed?
wards to shorten the season by striking
o(f Sopetcmber was adversely reported af?
ter a speech of nearly three hours In
opposition by Colonel W. W. Sale, of
Norfolk. The bill was advocated toy the
State Board of Fisheries and opposed by
The bill to break the Baylor eunvey will
come up on February 17th.
There will bo two new members of the
House of Delegates during tho present
session, and possibly three.
In a few days Speaker Ryan will Issue a
writ of election for a successor to Hon.
W. B. Clarke, late a member from Prince
Gc-orgo and Surry, and on the 3d March
Hon. R. G. Southall will retire to tako
his seat In Congress, thus entailing a spe?
cial election for tho district composed of
the counties of Amelia ?fid Nottoway.
The retirement of Mr. Southall will leave
tho chairmanship of the Committee for
Courts of Justice vacant, and Inasmuch as
Mr. Duke, the ranking member. Is already
chairman of an important committee, it
Is not unlikely that the honor may go to
Hon. N. B. Early, Jr., of Greene, who is
next In Une. The House will fd-Oay act
upon the McLean case, and If the member
Is unseated there will be a new member
from Mecklenburg oounty.
In connection with the bills offered t>y
Mr. Edwards to transfer certain oyster
bottoms In Westmoreland county to pri
vrte parties, It has been.stated that in
opposing them Hon. C. Conway Baker did
not represent the voice of ...s people. Mr.
Baker Is In receipt of a series of resolu?
tions adopted by a mass meeting of citi?
zens hold in his county on January 80th,
ondorsing his course. The meeting is said
to have been attended by nearly 600 citi?
zens, and an extract from the resolutions
Is as follows:
'That we heartily endorse the course of
our' faithful representative, Hon. O. Con
way Baker, In the efforts ho has so far
made to defeat the proposed legislation
In the House of Delegates, and most ear?
nestly request him and also our distin?
guished State Senator, Hon. C. Harding
Walker, to use all legitimate means with?
in their power to defeat said hill and all
others Introduced for a similar, purpose."
Governor Montague yesterday affixed
his signature to the 1)111 paying the helTs
of the late J. J. Moran, of Alexandria
county, the sum of ?10.0000 for servi cos
rendered In prosecuting certain claims
before tho United States Government on
?bohalf of the State. Tho passage of the
bill is due to the untiring efforts of Son?
ntor F. R. Donohoa nnd Colonel Robert
B. Lee, Jr., of Fairfax.

Dr. W. E. Hatcher, president of the
Board of Trustees ot Richmond College,
who 1b making valiant struggles to save
the Institute, has Issued a final urgent
appeal, in which he maltes some plain
statements. He says In port:
"At the meeting of the Baptist
Education Commission on the 22d
of January, the commissioners of
the court at Bristol were re?
quested to grant more time for raising
the 512.0OO for the relief of our sohool
property In that city That roquest was
presented through Brother R. Cabell
Henlng, a member of tho Baptist com?
mission, and the reply has been received.
Tlie oommisslonors of the court decided
that they cannot grant longer time than
March 1st This gives us Just one month
from this' time that tho decision of the
court at Bristol Is announced.
"I place these facts before the Baptists
of Virginia that they may understand
the real situation. What Is done will
have to be done during February, and
unless tlie rest of the money can be se?
cured by the expiration of that time,
the effort to ?a?? BTlstol will end In
failure. I state the matter in bold and
undisguised torme, and appeal to our
people to come to the resoue. I appeal to
thoso churches which have not already
taken collections to do so at once. I ap?
peal to tho*o ohurch.es which have fallen
below their apportionment to raise the de?
ficiency and forward It at once. I ap?
peal to generous friends all over the
State for personal contributions. I ap?
peal to our Baptist women, who are un?
willing to seo this school property lost,
to send us a contribution at once. 1 ap?
peal to the pastors, the real leaders of
the people, to do their duty In this emer?
"I am aware of the faut that many
good people havo withheld their gifts be?
cause they thought they had sufficient
reasone for doing so; but I would ask
them that. Inasmuch as this effort to
save our school at Bristol Is made under
tho direct instruction of the Virginia
Baptists, that they will fall into line and
do their duty. 1 appeal to pastors In
whose churches there may not bo the
warmest sympathy with this effort to
make the appeal with all the ardor and
power of their hearts."
