' The square reception parlor, tho ball?

last night and beautiful with tho grace?

THE COMMITTEE APPROVES
And Afterward, on Motion of Mr. Glenn,
Recommends that a Sum of Money
Be Donated for the Benefit
of Mr. ?Jones.
For the purpose/ of making; punito the

Uio non-payment of the claims tiled ln
favor of Mr. F. P. (Sugarbottom) Jonee,
an employe of the olty at the rock-pile

of the Committee on Police. Eleotlons
and School? wo_ held yesterday after?
noon, there being present Meaere. Glenn
(chairman). Clowes, Potere, Seay, Shea,
Sheppard, Stein, "Washer and Zimmer?
On motion of Mr. Sheppard, the follow?
ing resolutions were adopted, from
which It may be seen that the commit?
tee unanimously approved the course
pursued by Councilman E. H. Clowes,
In holding up payment of certain salary
vouchers In favor of Mr. Jones and call?
ing to Che attention of tho committee the
fact that William, Disney, another vag?
rant guard, has been making misleading
AVhcreas, Mr, F. P. Jones, an employe
of this committee, has published, an In?
terview, reflecting upon the official ac?
tion ot Mr. E. H. Clowes In the rejection
of certain claims, the committee deems
It proper to recite: That Mr. Jones
admits that he was sick October Oth and
could not perform his dally duties dur?
ing the remainder of that month. He
was, however, paid for every working
day in that month, or twenty-seven davs
at ?1.D0, $40.50; actual time mado, nine
days, at $1.50, $13.50. Amount overpaid,
$27.00, He was paid for twelve days ln
November, no timo having been made by
him, ?1S.OO. Total overpaid. $43.00.
These two pay-rolls were mnde up, cer?
tified and collected by Mr. Disney, an?
Still another pay-roll, giving Mr, Joi.?s
twenty-seven days In December, at SLOP,
per day. was made up, certi lied and pre?
sented for payment, but was refus-id
payment by the City Auditor, who had
evidence that not a day's service had
This was an effort to collect $40.60.
Yet another pay-roll was made, pre?
sented and rejected In committee for
twenty-seven days, at $1.60 per day. This
was an effort to collect $40.50. Total
presented and not paid, $81.00.
It is. therefore, plain that Air. Jones
received for time not made $45.00, and
that pay-rolls were made, certified, pre?
sented and rejected for $.S1.00, making
a total overcertllicatlon of $120.00.
In each case it was necessary that
sonic one should certify to tho number
of days of actual service?and no more.?
DUTY OF MR. CLOWES.
It was the duty of the auditor ot the
committee. Air. Clowes, to check and
approve these pay-rolls. If ho had rea?
son to suppose or evidence to prove that
the service reported had not been ren?
dered, It was his sworn duty to refuse
h's approval of the rolls. And no one
claims that Air. Jones worked ln De?
cember or January. Mr. Jones, like all
per diem men. was entitled to pay for
each actual days service only; now,
therefore, be it
Resolved by the Committee on Police,
first, That tho October and November
pay-rolls were erroneous and overcertl
Second. That the December and Janu?
ary pay-rolls were unwarranted and over

In tho matter was In every sense proper
and necessary and in accordance wah
the ordinances of the olty governing such
Fourth, That Air. Clowes has the com?
mendation of this committee for his
carefulness In examining theso accounts,
detecting the errors therein and protect?
ing the Interests of tho city.
MONEY FOR MR. JONES.
Tho session of the committee was one
of the most interesting held by It in a
long time, every member giving the clos?
est attention to every word that was ut?
tered. It. Ilnally culminated, after the,
adoption of tue foregoing resolutions, in
a recommendation being made to the
Council that tlie sum of $S1. tho amount
that would have boen paid Air. Jones
had ho not been taken 111, bo appro?
priated for the benefit of his family, It
being shown hy Councilman Glenn that
they are In needy circumstances.
There is now pending before, the com?

COAL MAY GO
Some Think it Will Sell Soon
for $6.50 Per Ton.
DEPENDS ON WEATHER
And Weather Man Says It Will Grow
Warmer Again on Saturday?All
Dealers Now Selling Anthracite
at $8?Soft Coal Scarce.
With favorable weather conditions, an?
thracite coal, during? the past few months
a luxury In Richmond, will be selling hero
soon at $?.50 per ton. So, nt least, say
certain coal dealers, who are keeping a
close watch for Indications of another
drop, and who. It Is to he presumed, are
familiar with tho situation.
After the stringent con.ltlons Incident
to the strike period, It sounds dreamlike
and unreal to talk of1 anthracite In bo
tree and easy a fashion, and many. In?
cluding- some merchants, are disposed to
doubt that so marked a change Is Immi?
nent. But the belief of the others 1? sutil
oient to Inspire hopo In the breasts of
many, and as such It Is worth the stating.
One thing seems to be agreed by all.
As goes the weather, so will go the price
of coal. Everything depends upon atmos?
pheric conditions, than which there ls
nothing more uncertain, and coal will
fluctuate with the thermometer. If ex?
treme weather ensues there will likely be
a rise In tho price, Instead of a fall.
According to tho local weather bureau,
however, thero is no extreme weather In
sight for this section. The cold wave In
the- Northwest has moved eastward, and
where it prevailed there Is now a tem?
perature comparatively moderate. The
coldest place on the map yesterday was
somewhere In the far West, whero the
mercury stood at four degrees below zero.
In the East, ln which direction the wave
came, temperatures have fallen all along
the Une, but thero Is no extreme cold.
Tho bad) weather will probably continue
through to-morrow, ami then, most Im?
portant point of all, there will bo a mod?
In Richmond there was a fall of about
twenty-seven degrees In the ternp'erature.
Tho thermometer registered thirty-three
degrees yesterday morning, and last night
It went lower. The most disagreeable fea?
ture of the conditions was a high wind,
which blew ceaselessly and which affected
telegraph wires more or less. Through?
out to-day the cold will continue, and
then, beginning to-morrow morning, ft
will grow warmer. To what extent it
?will grow warmer remains to be seen,
