CLAMORING FOR PLACES
Larger Numbers of Old Men Are Now
Seeking Places With Ihe Company.

The explosion of a torpedo in Man?

ported that disturbed tho perfect peaco
and quiet in connection with tho street
railway strike. At the offices of tho com?

While the strike has not been declared

for employment came In, and tho com?
pany now has any number to choos'o from.
While tho organization keeps up the
fight, and many nro still sticking, many
of these have left tho city In search of
employment, nnd others nro seeking posi?
tions in other vocations In this city. A
number of tho men have applied to the
?various largo industrial plants In this
city and other Virginia cities, Hnd some
have gone to their homos in the country.
Have Many to Choose From. -
Tho company has now ceased to con?
sider applications for employment every
dsy, and has set apart Tuesdays, from
JO A. M. until noon, to receive applica?
tions for places on Its corps. All the reg?
ular men are uniformed, and present
o very neat appearance. Tho reckless run?
ners nnd tho Incompetents have been, about
weeded out, but as fast ns men violate
the rules they nro being dlrpensed with.
Always thero ?re others ready to tako
their places. Motormnn Payne and half
a dozen or more of the men who canio
here with Strike-breaker Fnrley aro still
here, and will remain.
Both tho owl cars r.rc now running ns
usual, and aro very well patronized. They
are protected by guards or policemen.
The hnrrncks at the Reservoir, main?
tained during the violent days of tho
strike, have now been vacated savo by
a few men kept there ns' guards, all tho
others having been notified that they must
get boarding houses elsewhere. This, the
men report, It hi not difficult to do. ex?
cept to get them closo to their work.
Mules Are Banished.
Tim mule car formerly run on tho
Fourteenth Street nnd Manchester Une
has been banished forever. The small car
formerly pulled by the mulos has been
rigged up with electric fixtures and a
trolley, and now goes spinning: over the
bridge at a bettor rate than tho old mule
motors. With tho removal of horse?
power from this enr tho last of tho old
horse cars has been seen.
Union wagons on the street aro not so
abundant now ns formerly, but some aro
still running and are fairly well patron?
Tho Public Service Company has re?
tained Mr. Robert II. Talley as attorney,
and through hlni will apply for a charter.
'As soon as the charter Is drawn It will
be filed with the Corporation Commission,
nnd then a general manager will bo
elected. The capital stock will, be $'J"),000

Inquiry elicits the statement that Gen?

Sunday for Tennessee, is c>;pcctod bnck
lr. a few dnys. Ho gave his associates
in the strikers' organization to under?
stand that he would. Inquiry at tho ho?
tel whero he stopped elicits the statement
that he has vacated his room, and bade
thim good-bye. but did not say whether
he would return or not. To a reportor
for Tho Times-Dispatch several days be?

possibly find his way about Rome."
Vonotlnns, who know the new Pope
well, ray that lm will soon be as much
beloved as Pontiff as ho was yesterday
as tho beloved Patriarch of the poor of
the Adriatic, in appearance Pius N. is a
very handsomo man. Ho has a line,

When ho pronounced his first benedic?
tion to-day at St. Peter's his voice rang
out with splendid resonance. in every
way to-day ho showed beyond a doubt
that ho has a dignity and personality in
keeping with tho best traditions associ?
ated with tho famous Pontiffs who for
centuries ruled tho Vatican.
The new Pope was attired all In wlilto
with the exception of red shoes. "When
ho was quite robed, the secretary of the
conclave, Moiislgnor Merry Del Val,
kneeling, offered him the papal white cap
anildst breathless silence. With a sliglit
smile Sarto took the white cap, placed it
calmly on his head, nnd dropped the red
ono lightly on the head of ' M bit si g nor
Merry Del Val, amidst a murniur of ap?
proval. This Is taken as a certain Indica?
tion that tho happy recipient Is soon to
bo raised to tho cardlnnlate.
THF. KISS OF PEACE. ?
As tho new Pontiff stepped from .behind
tho altar, tho only touch of color anout
him being Ills red and gold shoes, bo
really seemed the embodiment of his holy
office. His face was pnle and softened
by emotion. Ho paused a moment,' as ho
enmo before, the expectant cairdlnals^
then seated himself on the throno, with
a hurried movement, as though ho had
suddenly grown weak, ills hack was to
tho altar und he was enthroned to receive
the? so-called "first obedience" of the car?
dinals. They came forward, one by ono,
somo calm and smiling, others sober and
non-committal, while still others found
considerable difficulty, even at this hour,

All kissed his hand and foot, while he
saluted each on tho cheek with tho kiss
of peace. Then all broke Into the Te
Deuni with such effoct that scarcely an
eye was dry.
Plus N. then rose, and in a voice at first
tremulous, but gradually becoming full
and firm, administre?! tho papal bless?
ing to all of the members of tho Sncrod
College. It was received with bowed
and uncovered heads.
The fiishermati's ring not yet having
been found, a new one was placed cm the
Pontiff's finger as a symbol of renewed
power and evidence that the Catholic
Church has once more n sovereign head.
In the meanwhile masons and carpen?
ters had been busy breaking down doors,
so that the oardlnal deacons, together
with the master of ceremonies and the
conclavista and many others, might pro?

of all he broke down, declaring that such
responsibility nnd honor were not for

Advleos from Riese, the birthplace of
Pius X.. and a village of 4,000 inhabi?
tants, state that the Tope's mother, now
dead, when living there, occupied a small
peasant's hou'ie, having In her humility
always refused to live with her son Gul
seppe, as even his modest establishment
was considered by her to be too
luxurious in comparison with what she
was accustomed to. The older brother of
tho Pope, Angelo, lives In the village of
Dellegrazie, Province of Mantua, being
postman of the district nnd receiving
eighty dollars a year for his duties.
Ho n/lds to his Income by keeping n
shop. In which he sells tobacco and pork.
His two daughters ar the belles of the
village, being known for miles around as
tho "handsome Sarto Flsters."
When Plus X. was bishop of Mantua
his brother Angelo used often to go
there for reasons connected with his pos?
tal service The other clerks would ask
him Jokingly why his brother did not
find him ft better position. Angelo, with
sturdy Independence, answered that ho
preferred only to bo what he could make
himself. Still, following papal prece?
dents, the tobacconist and postman of
Dellegrazie should become a royal count
Choice of Cardinals Is Pleasing to Vir?
There Is every reason to bolieve that
tho elevation of Cardinal Gulseppe Sarto,
patriarch of Venice, to tho papal throne
will be decidedly pleasing to Americans
and even fort?nalo in Its effects upon
tho relations between tho Church in tho
United States and tho Holy See.
According t?> all accounts tin? new Pon?
tiff is a man of broad and liberal mind,
distinguished alike for his modern, pro?
gressive spirit and for the purity nnd
piety of his Ufo. A man of profoutiii
scholarship and exalted position lie is
yet simple and unaffected In his way.-?.
Perhaps his most distinguishing trait Is
charity for his fellowman, The selection
of tho name of plus may be significant of
ninny things; Is significant of the man,
Plus IX, was chiefly noted for his good?
ness and his benevolence.
The new pope, it Is said, holds the
1 "ni ted States particularly In his es?
teem. His liberal mind accords well with
tho spirit of the Church here, und tlir?
relations between Rome nnd America un?

delegate to the United States. The mourn?

In the absence of tho Bishop. Father
"Ungii. of the Cathedral, was seen yester?
day. When In Romo several years ago
he was fort?nalo enough to see Cardinal
Sarto. Speaking of the nowly-olot'tod
pope, he said I
"Ho Is especially romarkablo for the
exorcise of Christian charity. Ho will
prove to bo the 'ignis Aidons' as has

"Since 1893 he has held ono of the nio.-t

JOTTINGS FROM THE
Norman Elberfleld, one time favorite
of the base-ball fans In this city, on fiat
unlay mndn a remarkable record In the
game between the Now York Americans
and tho chanjploji Athletics at N??w Yor.<~.
Ills feat was nothing moro nor less than
defeating, singlo handed and alono, tho
plchlng phenomenon. Rube Waddoll, when
the great left-handed twlrler was at his
best. Of nil tho nine stars of tho Now
York American I/caguo aggregation who
faced Waddell, not one managed to rip
off a safe hit except Brownie. He made
a marvelous record. In four triais at
bat, bo lined' out a clean single each
lime, thus making a perfect batting av?
nge for the day. nnd the only hits minie
by his team. Waddell has given Copi'Oy
Ills baso on balls twice and allowed lie?
?\illo to walk once. Jack Chesbrr/ who
vus pitted against the formidable Wan
dell, managed to advance Be ville by a
sacrifice. In every case Elherfield canio
111? with bis Inevitable single and enabled
New York to score all thron of Its run.-.
All tlm champions could do was lo scorn
twice with tho seven scattered hits allow?
ed ihoni by Ohesbro. It was a star pitch?
ing exhibition all around. Although beat?
ing by Elberllold's remarkable batting
record, Waddell managed lo strike out
thirteen of New York's batters and put
out another himself, thus leaving tho
other seven men on the tonm to put out
tho other ten among them. Besides his
hilling. Elborfielil accepted all hi? chances
at short, without error.
Jack Chosbro, ?m old Richmond pitch
<rr, mid one of tho Pittsbur-j champions
twirling staff last year, has not made ns
lino a record with the New York Ameri?
cans this season, though he has liliclieil
perhaps as well. In Plttsburg he had be?
hind him one of the strongest batting
teams in tho country, while In New Yoik
his support In this respect is rather weak.
Besides this, Che.shro has lost .many
games by an eyelash, through an error
or a remarkable bit of link by his nppon
fllts, Ills -,'lti'hll - against AVnddell Hat
uiflny was up t<? Ii'h best standard, and
tho indications nro that he will yot pull
his avoiage Of games won up to tho
mark of Cy; Young and oilier lending
pitchers of the American league before
the season ends. Clarko Griffith, nl
tjiougll ono of tho ohlest pitchers in the
business and burdened with managerial
dull?..-, has minio tho best pitching rocina
for the New York Americans, and, s
improving as ihe season advances. *'?'li?
mit, of New Yoik, and Young, of Bo'
tou. two of tho oldest pitchers In I'"")'
of service, In base-hall of to-day. have
both been as good this year ns ever Di
fore, in fact, Young Is even beltei.
judged by the percent?g-S of games won.
B.ilph Seybold. olio of -Richmond s
fcrmsr Players. Is now for the M?ona
se a son with the Athletics, last VBir?
champions. He Is balling well above 3W
ami Is ono ?>f tho extra base ?tira Of the
league. His team is In second place In
the l.nauo race. Pickering, another .Vji?
Sinln Leaguer, who is with the All letle*,
is playing a fast-fieidio-r game., pus Mi?.
champion baso-runner close for his lauiclo
and batting in the select company of the
Sam Loever, the only one of the bunch
of ex-Richmond iiltchers, who helped
Plttsburg win two pennants and who ia
still with them. Is still keeping up his
fine work, and among the best of tl.o Pi?
McGlnnlty. formerly with ?t-iltimoie
and Brooklyn, and now the tn'i"*"Uay of
John MrGraw's rejuvenated Giants, made
an uuuansl record last Saturday. He
pitched for eighteen Innings consecutive?
ly ngaliiKt two of Boston's heat pitchers
?mi won both games?1-1 and 5-2?allow?
ing but six hits in each game, This la
a very unusual thing, and ranks the New
York pitcher among the best.
A remarkable game of base-lull was
played at Washington on Saturday by
Washington and Boston, American. The
veteran Young, pitching for Boston; \\aa
ontpllched by Howard Wilson, the Wash?
ington twlrler In a 1-0 game. Young yield?
ing seven hits and WIIkoii but live. The
remarkable thing about tho game was
that the full nine innings were played In
lust one hour and five minutes, record
'time. Washington bunched three singles
In the fill h Inning and that was what
caused Young's downfall. But for that
the struggle might have Bone extra tu?
Philadelphia Is Ihn best base-hall town
In the world. On RaturTIay It turned
out a crowd of 9,.",18 persons to see the
tail-end Phllles Play a second division
team, and largely as a consequence of
this encouragement the tailors took boih
games. The Quaker City people turn out
to base-ball year In and year out, whethor
Its learns are winn'ng or losing. Tho best
crowd elsewhere was 8,02,'i at New York,
to see tho great match, between Waddell
and Chcsbro. ,
The Boston National League team has
picked up a valuable pitching Und named
Williams. On Friday he let the Giants
down with throe hits and won his game
against the great Mnthewson?4-1.
Many numen familiar to local hnse-boll
enthusiasts are found in the score sheetu
of the Pacific League, In tho far W?-t.
Among the number aro Klsoy, Z?'glor,
Klopf, Diesel, Durrett, Kuno, ltouch,
.Shallot- and others.
Aocorsllll, a Lynchburff (Va.) boy Is
making a good record as catcher for the
Memphis team, leader? Of tho Southern
League' race He catches a majority of
the gurries and does It well, and hits the
brtll ut a good pace.
Plttsburg looks good for another Na?
tlonal I.ciigiio pennant, with New York
and Chicago as the rivals for the honor.
The Pirates havo a load which the other
rivals can hardly overcome. ? The team
is now greatly crippled.
In the American League, tho Boston ag.
gregation looks like a sure thing for the
flag, Philadelphia Is clinging doggedly
on to the second round and may yet null
tho championship out of Hie tire ?n the last
dints of the now waning season. The
Clovelaild crew have a little the best of
Griffith's New Yorkers, and may hold the
poMtlon. but the New York aggregation
rhould land us well as third In the race.
It looks Ilka a finish with Boston. Phlla
rielphia and New York?one. two. three.
