Thought Case Against Virginia

Why it is So, Often Late Made Clear.

No. 1417 G Stree,t,''N. W? '
Washington, D. C.v May 1st, 10O3.
An oftlcer of the Supreme Court, on be?
ing asked to-day wlvan the court would
lix a dato for tho.'nearlng of tho Virginia
?easts : repAte?r '?'
"I hardly think the Virginia cases will
over b\i heard of again, In view of the
decision of the court in tlio Alabama case.
It will not bo reached Inside of a year
in tho tegular order of business, and Mr.
Wise will hardly ask that it bo moved
up on the docket, in view of tho other
deblsion. The Attorney-General of tlio
State might ask to have tho case moved
up to an earlier date, but. I think that
he, too, will bo content to let the matter
rest where It is. The Alabama casa
practically decides the Virginia/ case, so
it Is hardly probable that tlio Virginia
controversy will over bo heard In the
The opinion expressed by the oillcial
just quoted- to Tho Times-Dispatch cor?
respondent seems to obtain here among
all who have watched the case. It will
probably be the end of all threats of
? carrying the cases of Individuals to the
Supremo Court for relief, and also tho
ond of all efforts to havo tho Constitution
j declared Invalid. Nothing has been
heard from J?ixn S. ,Wlse as to what he
thinks of the deolaldh.
Perhaps the people of North Carolina
havo wondered why their mail from the
West roaches them so late, but If thoy
would come to Washington and see sorno
,. of. tho things The Times-Dispatch cor?
respondent has seen, they would have It
explained. The Chesapeake nnd Ohio
train, which reaches Washington In the
early morning, about (1 o'clock, carries
a greatjdeal of North Carolina mall. In
fact, it brings more North Carolina mall
from the West than any other train
??from the West probably.
West of Hlnton. XV. Va., they have
, forty-three clerks on the Chesapeake and
Ohio who. In shifts from day to day,
work the". Virginia mall. At Hlnton the
sumo mall practically Is turned over to
the twenty-seven clerks nnd helpers In
the third division R. P. O, between Wash?
ington and Hlnton. Tho North Carolina
mailla turned over "solid." ns the mnll
clerks say, that Is, unworlced, to the
twenty-eeven clerks nnd helpers of the
Washington nnd Hlnton R. P. o. by the
forty-three clerks of the Hlnton nnd Cin?
cinnati R. P. O. Thn distance Is tho same
practically, and the work tlio same, yet
why the twenty-seven clerics nt this end
are required to do tho work of the forty
three at the other end Is ? mystery.
If there wero a sufllclont forco of clerks
running to separato that mall it could go
off at Reale. Va., and connecting with
tho southhound Norfolk and Western
train, could be In North Carolina In al?
most the samo time It gets to Washing?
ton. But It Is not up, nnd consequently
It is brought on to Washington. If It
had nil been distributed It could go out
?ftorr Washington shortly after 8 o'clock
In tho morning. Instead, the clerks have
rome In "stuck.-" as they say, and hav?
to work until 10 and sometimes 11 o'clock
before they get their malls ready to lenvo
tho car. Then at 10:51 o'clock, Home eight
hourn after It would have left Basic for
North Carolina, It leaves Washington,
one hundred and forty miles this side. It
Is undoubtedly a bad condition of affairs,
j,nd It Becms lhat the officiala of the Third
Division of th? Ririlway Postal Service
ought to have tho matter brought to their
nttentlon, bo thai thoy might correct It.
The Times-Dlepatrh correspondent has
been assured by tho ottico of the general
superintendent In another ease that the
service seeks .to deliver rnnll In tho
promptest manner possible, and It is bo?
IX-ved that if .they wero asked t" Investi?
gate the conditions, stops would bo taken
to remedy the notoriously bad delay in
tho nanlllng of the great volume.of mall.

Mr. nnd re. John J. Jones, of Rich?

Tho Senate Is not making very rapid
progress with the bill embracing statutes
relating to tho government of cities and

bility to keep the bill beforo tho Senate.
Mr/Halsey, chairman of tho subcommit?
tee which prepared tho measure, and who
has chargo of It on the floor, yesterday
mado an eurnest effort to have it disposed
of with no further delay. Ho protested
against tho proposition of Mr. Tyler to
pustpono tho bill until Tuesday. The
Senate has concluded tho major portion
of tho bill and Is now working on the
amendments, which cover nine or ten
pages of printed matter, Many of theso
were offored by Senators Anderson and
Bryant, while Mr. Halsoy himself con
At yosterday's session all the uncontost
ed amendments were agreed'upon and the
bill was laid aside for adjournment, The
questions at Issue' are of Interest to but
fnw Senators, hence the dlfllcutly of keep?
ing a quorum. The Senate will take, up
the amendments again . to-day. It Is of
Imperative Importance that thoy should
be completed beforo adjournment.
Tho bill was prepared by a subcom?
mittee of tho Senate Commltteo on Coun?
ty, City and Town Organization, com?
posed of Messrs. Halsoy, Chapman and
Eruce, and deals with the Important sub?
ject of city and town government. It Is
well known that the now Constitution
mekes many and far-reaching changes

ject of the aboye-montloncd bill, which
Is entitled '? bill to amend and re-enact
chapter -14 of the Code of Virginia (1887)

Much of tho bill Is taken up with pro?

that they shall consist of two branches.
It Is provided that nno branch shall be

Another important amendment, In which
