W**?trmtt" unrfiMlhleJMy Intended by the
!;; : ifAmern of the Constitution, and especial
G Ir that part -which referred to tlie Cm?'
flotation Commission, to put nil the
?"'' ' powers for ?ranting of refusing charters
1 ' iti the 'hntxls of" ono eenlrtO btidy, who
?Wer?* bound, under lnw lu ?rant thft
:? Bhsrter when tho requirement? of tho
Jaw In such eases had been compiled
Willi. It wns furthor Intended to linvo all
'V ?unii charters and Information relative
thereto filed at ono place, and not to
?? , h*re the information, ? s at present, kept
?? MJAJ't 1 tho Uallroad Commissioner's of?
fice, part In Ilia Auditor's omen, and pnrt
| In the Secretary of tho Commonwealth's
, OLD SYSTEM UNC? ???? BD.
Instead of th?s tfio object wns to have
all Information-In regard to tho nnmos,
stockholders, ofllcers, attorneys, etc.. of
? ' any and ?11 corporations kept on record
in ono central office, from which nil
proper Information could be gotten dl
reel bv V- ?. public. It would seem, there.
C fore, that House bill 103 prnotlcally
continues tho old system. In addition to
this, It Is urged that tho roundabout
method ot Incorporation required by
House bill,102 would add greatly to the
? expense ot obtaining charters by reason
of the foes which would bo required from
each office through which tho application
und certificato passed, On the other hand, !
It was learned by a Tlnies-Dlspntch re- i
porter"4that one reason for not having
?.'":, all the privato corporation charters Is?
sued direct from ilio Corporation Com
? mission as tho railroad, telegraph mid
other public corporation charters' are,
?ivas duo to a desire not to Infringe or
abate /the perquisites of lawyers in the''
outlS'lng districts, It. being feared that
'. were a contrary courso adopted all of tho
8 corporation practice would Immediately
be ccntorod In Richmond. It Is true, how
over, that the suits against tho publia
corporations will, as at present, be
brought In the county or corporation
where such action arises, and that the
advantage to (ho State of Virginia1 in
Rawing .all of its corporations recorded
%) . ?nd tabulated in one central office In ad?
dition to the. advantngo which will come
, , from speedy and simple method of get?
ting cMrtors, will more than outweigh
any prospective loss to locnl lawyers,
BOMB OTH.BR POINTS.
I?.ln some other points discussing chB.pler
?, which refers to railroads, tho ntten? .
tion of the Senato lina already been
'drawn to the now celebrated* subsection
fe) 32. of chapter 2, on mergers. As far ns
can ,be learned ,lt seems Hint tho senti
?. ?nont against tho passage of subsection
. (e) ns It stands has assumed such pro?
portions that a modification will, be
brought about prohibiting tho merger of
aYiy parallel or competing lines. But,
' It Is also pointed out that subsection (d)
of section 2, gives the railroads the right
to construct, maintain and operate "all
noccssary or convenient telegraph and
/telephone lines In connection with and
es a part of their business." Some mom
bors aro asking why that phraseology
should ho used, for it gives the railroads
the right to operate telegraph lines or
telephone lines anywhere they ohooso
throughout the State. It has been sug?
gested that It would bo better to say
''shall have power to operate all noces
| sary telegraph and telephone linos loonted
: along tho right of way of said railroad."
Anotiier gentleman In ^llscusslng House
bill 102, has pointed out that there 1a
: no mutual right of appeal to tho Supreme
Court when the Corporation Commission
finds that a railroad Is a matter of public
convenience, "Suppose, for example,
that ono road were deslrlous of keeping
another road out," said this gentleman,
"and to this end wished, to build along a
certain line that would proelude ???\
other road from entering 'that section
of tho country, If tho Corporation Com?
mission wore to find that the road were
not a subject of public utility, tho rail?
road, could nppeal lo.the Supreme Court,
and the Corporation Commission mlghL
be reversed, but If the. commission found
that the road were a public! utility those
parties who a?? interested In having sonic
other route adopted than that asked for
would Imvo the right to mnko their pide
heard Iti the higher court?, which .ob?
viously destroys all mutuality In the right
Again It Is pointed out that there are
Borne verbal infelicities, as, for example,
In soctlon 9, chapter 1, where It Is pro?
vided that "capital stock may be In?
creased when sanctioned by a voto of
two-thirds of tho amount of nil the stock?
holders who shall be present or repre?
sented and voting." It is suggested that
this does not necessarily require more
than throe people to bo .present or repre?
sented and voting. It I.? further asked
why should not an educational or chari?
table Institution bo allowed to hold foni
estate, tho yearly Incorno of which Is
more than 5.10.000. Surely, for example,
there can bo, no Objection to allowing a
charitable Institution to invest Its holdings
In .real estate or to allow Blacksburg or the
"University of Virginia to keep its in?
vestments In real estnto If It so desire??
Thero is Uttlo doubt thai this Important
piece of legislation will recelvo careful
scrutiny In 1?? ?enate and will be made
the subject of much debate, as It In?
volves tho future of the corporate growth
In this Stato.

We love to laugh, and like our old
friend, Jonnlo Kelrn.an, usod to say in
"Gayest Manhattan," "It is to laugh."
How much easier It Is to drive away
dull care with smiles, grins and giggles
than to carry around a frown and a
case of Indigestion:
We might morallze.over this thing for
a column and a half, but wo won't.
We. are not a moralist, and wo don't
intend to be.
Wo'd rather state.'a case and let the
public stand by the consequences.
For instance, you take Mister 'Tinkle"
He's as funny and entertaining as all
of Bostock's m'onkeys put together.
Ho can sing a song and dance a jig
with the eeli-posscssion of a Press El
dridge or tin Eddie Leonard.
Ho comes back to you in a repartee
that is unassallublo and unanswerable,
and it Is always up to you.
We hod the pleasure of meeting Mister
Pinkie at dinner nt tho Commercial the
other day, and we must confess that we
havo gained four pounds and soventy
flvo cents since that time, because we
laughed so much we camo near splitting
Hero's to tho light-hearted fellow, and
may ho live many years to help others
And life worth living.

sixteen pounds with Its scales on, and
a half dosen perch tipped the scales at
thirty-two pounds. Besides, there were
