Move-r-Efforts to be Made to
Retain Them Here.
Richmond people will be startled to
team that the Chesapeake and Ohio Rail?
way Company Is seriously considering
the removal of Its general offices from
the city to Clifton Forge.
A conference for the discussion of such
a proposition was held a few days ago
at Clifton Forge, attended by " President
Stevens and other executive officers. It
was learned here that for two weeks the
matter has been occupying the attention
of Mr. Stevens and other high officials
of the road. It Is quite certain that no
decision, either for or against the re?
moval, has been reached.
The stage of the proceedings and the
causes which led to their existence could
not be learned here yesterday from the
executive heads of the road, because not
one could be located. All save Mr. Henry
T. Wlckham had not returned from tho
conference, and Mr. Wlckham had left
for his home In Hanovei. Efforts were
made to reach Mr. Stevens. On Friday
he was In Pittsburg. A telegram asking
for an Interview with him was sent to i
the Pittsburg Dispatch. The following

BOY OF ELEVEN
Arrested on Cfe,rgi? of Homicide,
Walter E. Bassett Admits
(By Associated Press.)
TAUNTON, MASS., Nov. 7.?Angered
beyond his powers of control, Walter E./
Eassett, eleven years old, to-day shot
and instantly killed Peter Clurk, an
eleven-year-old schoolmate. The tragedy
was the outcome of a quarrel between
the two little fellows. Bassett was ar?
rested on the charge of homicide, ad?
mitted his guilt, and later in the evening
was released on bail.
The Clark boy, with two companions,
called this afternoon at a cobbler s suujj,
situated) In a barn In the rear of the
Bassett house, to get a pair of shoes,
and the Bassett boy ordered them to
leave the yard. Becoming enraeied at
their lingering in the yard, he seized an
old cavalry sabre which was In the wood?
shed, and tried to draw It from Its scab?
bard, but the blade was too firmly rusted
In Its sheath. He then went into ti.e
house and reappeared with his father's
shotgun, which was loaded. Pointing
the weapon at the Clark boy, who stood
ten feet away, he fired. Young Clark
dropped to the ground dead, the top of
his head being blown off.
On account of his youth, District At?
torney Swift permitted his release on
$10 000 bail, but not before Mr. Clark
the father of the dead boy, had callod
at the police station and- expressed the
