No. 1103 Hull Street. J
Three committees mot Inst night?Ceme?

M. Allen, of tho Cemetery" Commltteo.
read tho monthly report,' which was ap?
proved. Many Improvoinonts have been
mado In Maury Cemetery. Privett plants

fence is being put up on tho Maury Stroot
side; concrete walks and steps are being
placed nt tho superintendent's house;
two fountains In front of tho rcsldenco,
and nil necessary whitewashing of trees,

Tho Health Commltteo then mot. Tho
bills wero road and approved, except that
of Mr. Morrlssetto for tho burial of Mrs.
Saunders, .which was roforred to tho
Tho Street Commltteo camo to order
nnd tho report of the secretary was
read and approved. Tho bills wero laid
on tho table.
Mr. Mooro then appeared before tho
commltteo to lodge complaint against
the Atlantic (Coast Line Railway for
blocking Powhatnn Street, which Is
crossed by the railway. Mr. Moore said
that tho people of that street experienced
a good deal of trouble and no little dan?
ger on account of tho frequency with
which the crossing wns blocked.
It was not unusual, hn snld, for pass?
age to be stopped from fifteen to twenty
flvo minutes, and that ho himself hnd
boon compelled recently to wait thirty
eight minutes. Ho asked that tho com?
mltteo take some means to relieve the
Mr. C. C. .Tones, a member of tho City
Assembly, who Is yardmaster for the
Atlantic Coast Lino Railway, rose to
mnko nnswer, and said that ho was In?
directly responsible for the trouble, but
that he was already taking steps
to mnko due remedy. He said that the
road was very busy, and that it was
a difficult matter to be continually cut?
ting trains apart for three crossings,
which are all near togother. The super?
intendent, he continued, was taking ac?
tive steps to relieve tho stress, and that
tho next trainman caught unnecessarily
and heedlessly blocking the way would
be dismissed. Ho wanted ' a little time
In which to take tho necessary stepa
It was decided that the matter lay out
sldo tho jurisdiction of tho Street Com?
mittee, as thero Is no ordinance laid
down on the subject, and that tho mat?
ter would have to bo referred to tho
Mayor as coming under his authority.
Then Mr. Duke, of No. 514 West
Twelfth Street, roso with a plea that
some remedy bo applied to tho street
on which he lives.
Ho said that the street was filled with
holes and gullies and that it is almoat
a matter of Impossibility to walk or
drive along It. In front of his house Is
a stable, with a large pool of water In
front, which Is both annoying and offen?
sive. It was moved and carried that tho
City Engineer make an examination of
the place to see what could be done and
make an estimate of tho cost for repairs
and report back to tho committee.
A letter was read, from a dozen or moro
citizens, complaining of the conditions
existing on Balnbrldge Street, between
Seventh and Twelfth Streets, and.praying
that some remedy bo applied thereto.
Still another letter was read, complaining
of like and worso conditions existing on
Semmos Street. W. S. Ballantlnb; tho
complainant, added that thc street was
almost Impassable; that this caused a
decrease In property values, and. that ho
was well night disgusted with Manchester.
Several members followed the letter
with complaints of their own, and urged
that some action bo taken Immediately to
remedy this bad state of affair?. It
seems that tho condition of Semmos Street
Is worso than any other In town and that
It Is most deplorable. Then followed a
lively debate, which at times rose to
some heat, as to how and whero tho
money now In the treasury could bo best

CHILD IN DISTRESS.
Afflicted, Lost and Penniless, She
Was Ejected From Street Car.
Blind in ono eye, helpless to find her
way to her homo and without a car
ticket or any money, a little teh-yoar-old
white girl was ejected from a Main
Street car at Seventh and Main Streets
last night at cxacUy 8:50 o'clock by tho
conductor who hod, so the child stated,
carried hor past hor street. But for two
young men who wero passengers of tho
car and who got off when they saw tho
girl put off, little Mattlo Stel-walt, of No.
152! Chaffln Street, might have wandered
nbout the street aimlessly for hours and
pcrhans come to some grlof.
As the car noared Seventh Street, the
conductor spoke to the little girl, who had,
presumably, asked him about the street
at which she was to get off. Rudely, the
conductor was seen to tako the child
and push her to tho rear end of the car,
and In a very'-gruff voice toll her to got
off and catch tho noxt car going back.
That was all he said, and tho car moved
Two young men left the car and asked
the child tho cause of hor trouble. Sho
said that she had boon visiting and that
her relatives had placed her on the car
and told thc car conductor where to let
her off. At tho cross street leading to
Chaffln Street, she knew tho locality and
could have found her way homo.
, With tears in her eyos, tho ton-year-old
child said that In the day she could have
told where sho whb, but at night, "tho
doctor says I'm going blind In this eyo
(touching tho right), and I can't tee
very well. I wish ono of you would
go with mo homo. My name Is Mattlo

GOME TO RESCUE
OF THE DIP MEN
McCarthy Council, Royal Arca?
num, Decides to Help Mem?
bers Pay Dues.
McCarthy Council, No. MS, Royal Ar?
canum, held a very Interesting meeting
nt Leo Camp Hall lost night and adopted
with unanimity and enthusiasm a reso?
lution, which gives abundant evidence
that the Arcanum Is a fraternal Insti?
tution In fact as well as name, and
which will go very far towards silencing
the criticism as to freezing out the older
members. Those best Informed In Ar?
canum matters have all along scouted tho
Idea of any intuition on the part of tho
order to do thc older members the least
Injustice, and have maintained that tha
protostants would recognize tho -wisdom
of tho readjusted rate schedules as soon
as they properly considered the matter,
Tho resolution that follows, and tho en-'
thusiaxm It developed, proves that ine
Arcanum Is a brotherhood of true men,
based on noble principles. Hero It Is;
Resolved, That McCarthy Council, No.
4GR, Rny.il Arcanum, bo furnished a com
plcto list of all Its members over fifty
five years of age, and that the said list
be referred to a^commlttco of five, to bo
appointed by the* regent, for the purpose
of. dovlslng some plan whereby our older
brethren may bo assisted In paying as?
sessments after October 1, 19(6.
An Interview with prominent Arca
numltes yesterday developed the fact that
It Is not antlcli*ited that there will bo,
any serious break In the Virginia ranks.
It Is likely that other councils In tho city
nnd throughout the Stnto will pass simi?
lar resolutions to that on last night
passed by McCarthy, and which Is a
credit to fratcrnnllsm.
