NEWPORT NEWS, VA., Nov. 18.-An
Interesting Question has arisen in Uie
?orne? ?f W. K. Stow, the chief of the
fife department, who is on trial before
Mayor Moss, charged with drunkenness,
neglect of duty and unbecoming conduct. ?
It Is said that when tho trial Is resumed |
to-morrow morning the chiefs attorney,
R. G. Blckford, will raise the point thut
the Mayor has no legal right to try tho
cane, and will aak that the investigation
The claim will be that, While tho new
Constitution gives tho Mayor the au?
thority to investigato the acts of flro
and police officers, nnd to suspend and re?
move them, the Legislature has never
taken action to put the socUon Into effect.
Attorney Hunter Boyd Gold, who Is
prosecuting the charges, stated to-day
that he, also, had a card up his sleeve,
which he Intended to play to-morrow,
but refused to make any statement con?
cerning the case.
The trial of Chief Stow bogun yesterday
morning and the entire day was spent
in hearing evidence for the complainants.
Some of the testimony was very damag?
ing Fireman Lenz testified that th?
ehlef wae In the habit of entertaining
dissolute characters at the central engine
house; that he was too drunk on the
day of th? Confederate parade to turn
out with the department, etc. Council?
man Burcher alno testified that 6tnw
was drunk on the day of the parade.
A number of witnesses gave evidence In
negar? to the assault made upon Palmer
Dlllard by the chief at a fire several
About twenty witnesses were examined
and th?re were still many on the.com?
plainants' list when the Mayor adjourned
ceuri.at'8 o'clock In the afternoon. To?
morrow morning at 10 o'clock was the
time set for resuming the trial.
The Jury In the coco of Ottowa St. Clair
against the Citizens' Railway. Light ana
Power Company, which has been
trial In the Corporation Court for three
day?, brought In a verdict tor the plain?
tiff to-day, giving Judgment for 175. Th?
amount sued for was 110,00ft. and it Is
probable th?t the plaintiff will move to
set.the Verdict aside. The plalntlif is h

of Mayor' Moss that a special meetlne

the election was postponed until to-mor?
row morning. Everybody was worn out.
More than an hour was spent this morn?

founded the order. Four years ago Geor?
gia cllamed that Mrs. Raines, of that
State, was the founder, whl.e Tennessee
claimed the credit, declaring that Mrs,
M. C. Qoodlett, of Nashville, was tho

from the minutes. ? was secondini by a
delegate from Georgia, who wanted the

to herself she left the stage. A delegate
from South Carolina moved that the re?
