a. variety of blackberries, which are per?

White blackberries are quite a rarety.

home than either California or Arkansas
or even North Carolina. At Sprlngdale,
In Chesterfield county, about a mile and

they came from originally, but they were

Identical with the Lawton berry excent
In color, which resembled that of the
mistletoe berry more than anything else.
They were not as vigorous in growth
as the common blackberry, but bad
heavy crops of berries.

opinion as to cortaln ordinances? In which
the company was Interested. He simply
served the company as an attorney. He
had copies of the opinions he had writ?
ten for the company, but a3 Mr. Mon?
tague had served only In tbe capacity of
a lawyer, the committee did not think It
would serve their purpose to have these
papers read. Mr. Montague was oa the
witness stand only two minutes.
Captain Pizzlnl Testifies.
Captain Andrew Pizzlnl was next call?
ed to the witness stand. Questioned by
Mr. Pollard, he said that he had several
years ago been a member of the City
Council. He told of his connection with
the street car systems In Richmond dur?
ing the early stages of their history. The
Captain said he had known General
Meaney for' many years: out of regard
for him ho took a lively interest In the
fights for the franchises for both the
Long Distance and the Bell companies.
He was not paid to work for either com?
pany. What he did was to confor with
counsel and give them such information
as was in his possession. When the
Bell Company's franchise was pending
Captain Pizzlnl talked with several of
the Councllmen and did whatever he
thought was proper to convince them
that It was for the best interests of the
whole city that the ordinance be passed.
Captain Pizzlnl was asked If he had
ever loaned money to Councllmen Ho
said that he had. Asked to give names,
the Captain stated tluit he had loaned
money to Messrs. Bahen, West, King,
Gibson. Williams, and perhaps others.
Some of these loans were made long be?
fore the Bell fight came.up. Nearly all
of the obligations had been, discharged.
Only one or two had not been satisfied.
Asked if there was any special reason
why he should have loaned money to
these particular people, Captain Pizzlnl
said: ''None whatever, more than the
reason for lending money to others who
give me good security. I would be glad
to lend you some money. Mr. Pollard, on
Loaned on Real Estate.
Captain Pizzlnl said in nearly every
case real estato was mortgaged to guar?
antee the payment of the loan. He had
recently loaned Mr. Bahen money, on the
stock and fixtures of tho John T. West
printing office. Mr. Bahen was curtail?
ing the notes whenever they became due.
Captain Pizzlnl reiterated that he was
not paid a cent for hie services in behalf
of the Bell Company, but his service
was rendered purely and simply because
he was a warm friend of General
The witness etated that he never
coupled a loan with a request for a
vote. He did not think that the men
who had- borrowed money from him al?
ways voted for what witness?wanted. In
fact, he knew that often they voted
against measures he would have liked to
see passed?. In this connection, he men?
tioned especially Messrs. Williams and
King, who were active in getting the
franchise through for the Traction Com?
pany. Among the loans to King was a
sum to take up a loan made to the for?
mer Jefferson Ward alderman by John
L. Williams and Sons.
Captain Pizzlnl made a cool, calm wit?
ness, and his frankness made a fine Im?
Mr. F. C. Montague.
Mr. Fairfax C. Montague, the-, superin?
tendent of the Bell Company in Vir?
ginia, was the next witness. He was
unable to throw much new light upon
the subject of the Bell's franchise. He
was questioned especially In reference
to the entertainments given at Rueger'u,
to members of the Council. He gave
practically the same testimony as Colonel
Chlpley. He named the same members as
did Colonel Chlpley, as attending these
suppers or dinners. The cost of these en?
tertainments Mr. Montague did not know,
as he did not have to pay the bills.
Mr. Montague was asked about the
awarding of the contracts for new Bell
svetem. He 6aid the brick work was
????? to the Baltimore Brick Company,
of which Alderman John Mann, Jr., le
the president and the principal owner,
It Is said. Mr. Mann's company was
given the work because City Engineer
Cutshaw recommended the use of the
"Fulton brick*/' Mr. Montague did not
know then that Mr. Mann was Inter?
ested In the oompany. . >, ? ?
Mr. Mann had opposed the Bell's tran
chlse until the Thomasson amendment
fixing a maximum rate was adopted and
then he voted for it. -,
In reference to the cement, Mr.
Montague said he had heard, aa a
rumor, after the work was finished, that
Mr Gibson was interested as agent for
the concern that had the contract; but as
to this he did not know anything of bis
?T?8,0? MoknntatfuadBwas questioned pretty
closely about the contract awarded to
Councilman John R? Gr,Ime,??, Ha kne!w
of no promise made to Mr. Grime?, jhlle
the franchise was pending, that he would
get this work. The witness said that the
contract was entered Into with Mr.
GV mes lust as it would have been with
any other contractor: a bond had to
bo given just as would have been de?
manded of any one else.
Councllmen Get Contract,
Mr Montague said that Councllmen
Mills and Winston were also given certain
contracts, being the lowest bidders. Cer?
tain Councllmen bid on the building, and
it was let to Mr. Chestermun, the lowest
bidder. ,. ..' .,..,'. ?
Mr. Montague said that Alderman Beck
had been employed on-the engineering
force, and he thought that Councilman
Peters had been given a contract to do
somo painting. Colonol Chlpley employed
Mr, Poterti., ami Mr. Monty.tue .engaged
i.?r. Beck, who had served under blm In
various railroad surveys and wns known
to witness to be a mo:it competent man.
Mr. Montaguo knew personally nf only
ono person being employed to work in
behalf o? votos for tho Ht-iln franchise;
that was Mr. Phil ?. ShelM. who was
employed by witness. Mr. Montague did
not recall whether? It was 12,600 or <3,OJ0
that Mr. Shelld received.
Mr. Montaguo sani lie could only give
the list Of the Councilmen who had re?
ceived freo 'phones ns far b;i<:k at 1900;
prior to that time tho books were in too
bad shape to make out this list,
Ruskell a Good Witness.
Mr. Ruskell was sworn. .Mr Pollard
asked Mr. Ruskell If be attended any en?
tertainment given tho Btreet Committee
by tho southern Beli Telephone Company"?
Witness said that he had, but ??id not
recollect bow many. Ho had been to New
York twice as guests of the company to
inspect the exchange. Mr. Pollard stated
that Mr. Chipley had said that witness
had not received a Cfnt from loin or from
tho company, so far us lm knew. He
asked witness It that was correct' He
said It was. Mr. Pollard asked If ho
know of any member of the Council who
had received any money from tho com?
pany or had been approached by a mem?
ber of the company with Improper propo?
"No," he said.
Mr. Pollard did not wish to question
witness any further, und Mr. Minor took
him In hand. Tho chalrrnun asked him
about tho trips to Now York, and Mr.
Ru?kell testified that ho handled the
money for one trip, and that Messrs.
Mosby and Pollock had not received a
cent of It and not a dollar passed t1--5ugh
*f*lrT,h'?,nd?? UP?n further examination,
Mr. Pollock brought out thla fact very
To Mr. Minor's questions, Mr. Ruskell
reiterated what he luid alreadv stated to
the ?xirnmlttoe upon being questioned bv
Mr. Pollard, that so far as he ktiPw. no
money had passed into the hands of any
member of the Council from tho Bell
Co. This company was trying all It know
how to win friends but In a legitimate
manner. Mr. Ruskell made a good wit?
ness. Upon his being excused Mr. Glenn
asked the privilege of making a statement.
He said that the mention had been made
of Mr. Hobson being at one of the enter?
tainments of the company, but ho knew
of but one time Mr. Hobson ever went
to the place where the supper was being
held, and that was to see a member of
the Council who was there and then he
did not stay to supper, but transacting hrs
business, went away. Mr. Pollock stated
that' he was tho member of the Council
w-hom Mr. Hobson was seeking and that
he could testify that Mr. Hobson had
never been to a supper, certainly not to
any he had attended and he had been to
most of them. These gentlemen felt call?
ed upon to make these statements in Jus?
tice to Mr. Hobson, who was not present.
MR. PETERS IN THE CHAIR.
Mr. Peters, whose nnme had been men?
tioned in connection with getting a con?
tract, asked that Mr. Montague be again
put on tho stand. Being questioned by
Mr. Peters. Mr. Montague declared that
he had been asked, unsolicited, to do a
small amount of work by contract for the
company. Mr. Peters had always vote?!
against the company and worked against
it, said Mr. ? Montaguo.
General Anderson then took Mr. Mon?
tague In hand and tho spectators were
able to enjoy many a titter from the tes?
timony that followed. The General asked
witness If any member of the Council or
city official had asked favors and posi?
tions of him for relatives. Mr. Montague
began picking them out very fast, mtfch
to the amusement? of a1!, and even the
chairman cf the committee and tho City
Attorney were not spared- Witness said
he had found a son of the Mayor em?
ployed ag collector for the company when
he came hore.
Councilman W. H. Curtis had asked for
a position for his son and had gotten it.
Tho councilman made his request after
the fight had been won. CouncJlman Pol?
lock had asked him for employment for
his brother, whom he said had experience
as a bookkeeper. The conyiany did not
havo sucb a vacancy, so Mr. Pollock'3
brother did not get any work with them.
Mr. Montague said a number of such re?
quests had come to him, but he bad not
attached any special importance to them.
"I believe," said he, turning to Chairman
Minor, "that you asked me for employ?
ment for a relative of yours, a gentle?
man of your name, at least." Ono day I
received a letter, signed Thomason &
Minor, asking for a position for a Mr.
Minor. Mr. Thomason was then a mem?
ber of the Council, but you were not. Mr.
Minor did not remember whether be had
written the letter or not but the Minor
referred to was a distant relative of h's.
The spectators were having a good time.
Now turning to Mr. Pollard, Mr. Montague
said he had known the City Attorney since
a boy and he, too, had asked him for em?
ployment for a relative, a nephew, he be?
lieved. The audience waa most happy
then and Mr. Pollard had to face the
music, while Mr. Montague related that
one day Mr. Pollard had met him on tho
street and telling htm he had a nephew
that was Just out of college, where he
had learned something about electricity,
asked him If he could take the youth In.
Witness did not havo a place at the timo.
Mr. Pollard recollected tho circumstance
perfeotly. Of course, every ono realized
that nothing criminal, morally or other?
wise had been done in making these re?
quests, and every one took the confessions
Upon motion of Mr. Morton, the com?
mittee rose to meet next Thursday night
at 8:30 o'clock._
Result of Order for Army Officers to
Wear Uniforms on Duty.
Officers of the army on duty in the
War Department wear uniforms the same
as if they were on duty at military posts.
Occasionally an officer Is found who does
not appear In uniform, but It Is only for a
day or two at most. The practice has
resulted In making nearly every room oc?
cupied by officers a dressing room, whero
wardrobes are kept. Most officers dislluo
very much to appear on the street In
uniform; It makes them too conspicuous.
Uniforms for use In the department are
kept In a wardrobe, and tho ofllcers put
them on when they arrive In the morn
Ins, take them off and don civilian oress
to go to luncheon, and upon their re?
turn In the afternoon and departure for
home later go through the same process.
They don't like It, but it Is an order.
For people doing business at the depart?
ment It is much bettor, for a stranger
knows whether he is talking with an
oillcer or a clerk, and If familiar with the
emblems, can tell tho rank of the otti
Several attempts have been made to
have an order Issued in the Navy De?
partment which would direct officers on
duty there to wear their uniforms, but
the officers have .always made it plain
that such an order'would not be best.
"It Is all very well, said an officer
of the army, "bo far as discipline Is con?
cerned, but uniforms are not needed In
the department or about headquarters In
a city In garrisons, where tho uniform Is
worn all tho time, and where all men are
soldiers it is, of course, a good prac?
tice and essential, but It Is a great an?
noyance in other places, whero only a
few men are In uniform out ot several

RICH GOLD MINE
IN HALIFAX COUNTY
Copper Mine Superintendent
Discovers a Vein that Prom?
ises Fine Results.
ALTON. HALIFAX COUNTY. VA..
July 13.?A well-known citizen has Just
returned from tho vicinity of Vlrglllna,
and brings the news of discovery of gold
on the farm of George Hite, which Is
located about a half mile from Old Red
Bank store, and about three or four
miles from the town of Vlrglllna.
Mr. H. C Crowell, superintendent of
one of the largest copper mining com?
panies of that section, first noticed
traces of gold while prospecting for cop?
per some months ago, and secured an
option, nnd later on a deed to the prop?
erty, and recently formed a company
and purchased options .on many other
places where the vein of tho precious
metal Is supposed to run.
Several analyses have been made, and
the dirt Is very rich, some of It yielding
$2.000 to the ton. The vein Is fo?r feet
wide for ? quarter of a mile, which Is
as far aa It has been traced.
Mr. Crowell is an experienced miner
from the famous Gold Hill section of
North Carolina, and considers the prop?
erty a valuable one. Mr. W. T. Harris,
another well-known miner of Virginia
nnd North Carolina, will be associated
with Mr. Crowell In the enterprise.' A
ten-stamp mill will be started at an
early day, and good results are ex?
SWEDISH CANDY BOXES
Made of Wood and Decorated With
The newest candy boxes are of wood
and come from Sweden. There are buck?
ets with hoops and staves showing, and
the covers fitted on with wooden bars
and haspe. Just such buckets as are
uited to fetch sugar or butter from the
store or that the farm girls carry for
Simple as they look, they are expensive.
A bucket holding from two to three
pounds costs from $4 to $7. This is Be?
cause of the peculiar decoration and orna?
mental mottoes that are the handiwork
of the Swedish peasant women.
The candy consumed, the bucket an?
swers good purpose as a work-box. It Is
the style of box Just suited to rusticating.
The designs painted across the staves all
savor of orchard and field and country
doings, and the wonder Is that colors so
direct, almost staring In themselves,
should look so modestly appropriate
when pictured on the wooden surface.
Another model of the wooden candy
box ltl of flat, lozenge shape, with the
front opening like a cupboard door, and
with a wooden bar and pin for fastening.
There are wooden pegs made to fit Into
the back and places for attaching tho lit?
tle hanger to the wall. This style box Is
a fac-slmlle of tho housewife's key-holder,
which figures conspicuously In every Swe?
dish household. "A place for everything
and everything in its place" Is the Eng?
lish interpretation of the motto that dls
tlngulshetl this receptacle.
A miniature chest shape, with stout
looking hoops and a wooden staple, Is a
style of box that does well for handker?
chief case or trinket holder when Its orig?
inal mission Is over. The motto on this
Is a love message framed In homely terms.
Some of the sayings on these curiously
pretty wares are In -rhyme, signifying
