THE TRUSTEES MEETING
IN SPECIAL SESSIONS
Committee Considers Means of Raising
$500,000 This Afternoon?Will Re?

Be Glad to Honor Dr. \
RIchmond College may soon have cstab
llslicd In connectlon wlth It a great
"School of Technology," to be named In
honor of Dr. J. L. M. Curry, who sug
gested such a thlng as early as 1830.
Tho trustees of the college began a
movement ln this directlon yesterday at
a speclal meeting. Their Idea Is that to
have such an Institutlon conducted as a
par* of RIchmond College, wlth whlch
Dr. Curry was assoclated, first as pro
fessor, later as trustee and presldent of
the corporatlon. for thirty-five years,
would be the most fitting and, could he
know of It. the most acceptable memorlal
possible for hls frlends to erect.
Put to do this at least *tSOQ,000 would be
nctdc-d for endowment. This money is to
be ralecd, nnd wlll be ralsed, among the
fneuds and admlrers of Dr. Curry and
those who appreclate the great value to
a ccmmunlty a tralnlng school ls. Just
in what directlon to look for this money
and how those who are wllllng to glve
ran he reached Is yet to be dctermlried.
For that purpose a commlttee, conalstlng
of Presldent Boatwrlght, Governor Mon
tcgue. Hon. J. Taylor Ellyson, Ro. S.
Bosher nnd Dr. Charles H. Rylanil, was
appolnted. This body wlll meet at the
Governor s Jlanslon th!;v afternoon at 4
o'clock. and the matter wlll certainly be
handled with the utmost dellbcratlon.
Tl:e Board of Trustees will meet agaln
to-rr.orrow to reeelve and consider the
report of the commlttee.
MOVEMENT MOST TIJIELY.
The movement, on the face of lt, ls a
most tlmely one. Dr. Curry was one of
ihe groatcst apostles of popular educatlon
that ever llved In this countrv. He has
many frlends, North and South. who hon
eren and udrnlred him for hls great work
for educatlon, and would gladly glve to a
fird whlch sought to perpetuate hls name
through a great school for the tralning
of that class of citizens who make thelr
livlng with eklllful hands and enduring
Dr. Curry long wanted RIchmond Col?
lego to have a department of technology
In connectlon with its acadernio schools.
Years ago, when he was presldent of
the trustees, he brought the matter before
tlio body und secured thelr unanlmous
support of it. In tho Isaue of The Tlmes
of Pecember 28, 1800, Dr. Currv, aftor
dlscusslng fully the value to the nation
of such tralnlng ns the tochnical school
glves, says of tho propositlon to have one
at RIchmond College: "To establlsh a
technoiogical school, such ns we need and
should have. is no chlld's play. and cannot
be nccompllshcd by mass-meetlngs and

Dlstrlct Attorney Krotel sald to-day that
the lnsurance fraud case now under ln?
vestlgatlon ln this city promLscd to de
velop into one of the most startling ever
known in the crlmlnal hlstory of the clty.
"Before the Distrlct Attorney's offlce
has flnlshed Its lnvestlgatlon of the as
tounding and extraordlnary New York
insurance frauds," he sald, "I should not
be surprised If it were proved that the
consplrators even went so far as to mur?
der In cold blood to get bodles for the
purpose of coliectlng pollcies. AVo have
found that twenty-three substltute bodles
wero passed off on the Hancock Insur?

plotters are Indlcted these -wlll be ex
liiimed. Tho lnvestlgatlon lnto the re
markoble plot has already begun."
The fate of Sarah AVeber, who, lt ls
alleged, dled from the effeet of brulal
treatment, whlch, it Is charged, she re?
eelved at tlie hands of the consplrators,
Jlr. Krotel sald, was but a single instance.
According to storles told' by her relatlves,
Sarah Weber was tortured in order to
eoiiipel her to aid ln tlie iristimnc. frauds.
When the glrl left home she had rosy

When hor famlly found her she was a

CHICAGO, ILL., February 18.?Tho so
called beef trust case was dlsposed of to
day by Judge Grosscup in the Unlted
Slufes Clrcult Court, the demurrer of the
pi>.cJ<c-rs helng overruled and a temporary
Injunction granted. The attorneya for

An appeal may be taken ln order to
hasten the ftnal adjudlcation of the case.
It ls not believed llkely that the pack?
ers will let the matter go by default, thU3
making the inJuncUon permanent.

"For the purpose of clear exposltlon the

"What may be called the body of those
transactions is two-fold. lt reaches back

in my judgrment, interstate commerce "
The questlon whether the averments

character of unlawful combinatlon.

"No one can doubt that theso aver?

there wero some still unpald. and tha:
thore was not enough money approprlat,

doubt of tho money belng approprlated.
NO NEW BUILDINGS.
The omnlbus publlc buildlngs blll, re?
ported lost Saturday, does not provlde
for the orection of any new buildlngs.
The contrary Idca seems to prevail in
somo sectlons of Vlrginia, and Congress
men are rocelving letters from constltu*
ents to know why thelr towns dld not get
nppropriatlons for new postolllces. Tha
blll does provlde for the acqulsltion of a
few sites, but tho remalnder of the np?
propriatlons aro for the contlnuanco of
work provlded for by exJstlng lcgislation.
Mr. Glass has been very deslrous of se*
curing an mpproprlatlon for a postofllco
bullding at South Boston and one for a
postofflce at Bedford City. H? was un?
able to do so, owlng to tho fact that the
