IS MUCH AMAZED
Say They Have Always Pald
Bills from Richmond's
Tho supervisors of Henrlco county aro
nll n.mn.od thnt tho Board of Firo Com
mlsKlonoi-H of Richmond should go to nny
cnnsltl.riible lengths to presont them with
a blll for servlces renderod, They- are
curlous to know why thero Is bolng so
much snld about tho mattor, in view of
tho fuct that they havo been p:iylng such
bllls ever sinco thoy can romombor.
Tho supervisors met yesterday at tho
courthouso ln regular sossion, but hnd
not yot recelvod tho communlcatlon from
tho Board. Honeo tho mattor was not
oven montloned nt the meeting.
Several monibers, soon nl'torwards, snld
they woro nt a loss to uudcirstnnd what
It all mennt, For years back they hava
boen paylng bllls for damages sustalned
by tho flro dopnrtment during servlcvs
rendereel to Honrloo pooplo?damages such
ns broken hose nnd so on. Not once
have thoy refuaod to meet auch bllls pro
sontocl to thom. Thoy have no looa now
of clocllnlrig to do so.
It Is suggested ln the lettor from Uio
Board that tho supervisors ostabllsli
eheniicnl statlons nnd so on in tho county,
and tako such other stop. us may lu
necessary to protoct tholr own constitu
ency',lii enso of flros, Whon asked If tho

Is Pleaslng 4o All Except ln
Ono Single Respect.
BUT LITTLE FOR CHARITY
Under tho Constructlon of Ihe New
Law Many Worthy Instltutlons ?
Woro Cut Off From
Probably never before. cortainly not
wlthln the memory of any ono now con
nectod with the clty government, has un
anual budget been recelved wlth more
genulne and unlversal ploasuro than tho
dooiimont whlch was passed Monday nlgln?
by th? Common Councll wlthout .so muoh
as havlng beon read. Tho actlon of tha
losaor body of tho munlclpal government
Ih takon as a compllment to tho lntegrlty
of tho Finance Committee, headed by Mr.
Jamos R. Gordon.
Thlnklntr that the budget. whlch hls
commltteo had slriven on with such cares
would be rocelnrod Monday nlght as for?
mer documonts of a liko nature, Mr. Gor?
don. although a member of tho Board of
Aldermen, was on hand to offer anv ox
planations about thls or that item which
mlght. not be quite. clear. He was wait-.
ing pationtly ln the smoking-room of the
chambor ongaged ln conv&rsatlon wlth
ono or two other gentlemen. Not one
of them hnd the remotost idea that.the
budget had beon called up, when sudden
ly In walkod Mr. ?Heslcp wlth the Infor?
mation that thu paper hnd beon passed
wlthout a dlssentlng voto, praclically.
WAS A COMPLIIME5NT.
To say that Mr. Gordon was pleased
and oqually surprlscd, is putting It mild
ly. Ho had expected a debate of at least
three hours, and reasonably thought that
several amendments would be made In
the document. It certalnly was'a com?
pllment to tho Finance Committee.
Inqulry yestorday among Councllmen?
members of different commlttees?reveal
ed that almost to a man they aro ploased
wlth tho recommondatlons of the Finance
Committee. They soem to reallzo that
every effort was exhausted to gbve each
department Just aa much money as possl?
ble, and have no klck to make agalnst
tho report. Mr. Marx Gunst, chnlrman
of the Rellef of the Poor Commltteo, anff
also a member of tho Flnmcc Cotamlt
teo, is sllghtiy upset over the fact that
ln tho budget tho estlmate of exponses
at the Almshouse Is cut down $1,000, but
otherwise he jolns hls follow members
In aipplaudlng the budget.
MUSIC IN THE PARKS.
Thero has been somo" little talk ovor
tho Itom approprlatlng *2,S00 for music
ln the parks, whlle the budget lgnorcg
the charltablo instltutlons of the clty.
Mr. Shea doesn't thlnk thls qulto rlght,
but when he advanced hls objectlons,
he eVide'ntly was not awaro that undor
the rullng of the Clty Attornoy, lt would
havo been unlawful to glvo any money
to nny charltable lnstltutlon. other than
those in which the clty is directlj' inter?
It wlll bo remembered that "whon the
new Constltutlon was drawn there wns
inserted n clnusc allowlnp no_city or pub?
llc corpomtlon In Vlrglnla to appropriate
any part of tholr funds to the malntaln
ance of charltablo Instltutlons. When ?
petltlon for a certain sum fnr such pur
poses camo up In the Councll. the mat?
ter was held up on that point. pendlng
an oplnlon from the City Attorney.
Mr. Pollard carefuly dnvestlgated tho
law, after whlch he reported that It would
bo illegal to mako any appropriatlons to
charltable Instltutlons. lt was duo en?
tirely to thls that the Finance Commit?
tee omltted In tho budgot small appro?
priatlons to the different instltutlons.
WILL BE OOMPLAINT3. -
So far no complalnt has beon, heard,
but thoy are sure to materlallze when
the fact fiilly develops upon the effecteil
charltablo Instltutlons, and an offort may
be made to have the law amended, so as
to mako It posslblo to glvo ovor small

As shown In tho copy Of tlie budget ro

It seems the atmosphere of a Sanhedrin
hurts health. Tho ?_one gets used up.
The alr loses1 Its oxygen and galns car
bonlc acld gas, whlch lnoculates the

thoy addle a sound egg. A senate
grades down below the averago mem?
ber. The fool somehow drags men abovo
hlm to hls level.
A synod appears lnferlor ln goodness
and wlsdom ,to the Indlvldual Chrlstlan
composlng It. The frlotlon of thelr mlnds
emlts earthly odors. Thoro ls at tlmes
a bad tasto left ln the mouth at ad
journment. At the famous and hlstprlo
church conferenco at. Nlceal. composed
of men malmed ln eye, llmb and ten

porsecutlons for ChrLst's aake, thore was

urged to Isolato ourselves In "our clos

to rcchargo heart and braln from a

There ls somohow a leakage of plety
