lieve In education, and they are going
to meet you half way.
The feeling Is good and the spirit right.

where the people have greater freedom to
tax themselves locally than Is offered In
Virginia/Among thc fundamental conclu?
sions thc South has reached, said ? Dr.

no civilization can get to be. great in
poverty, in Industrial Inefficiency, and
secondly, the profound belief In tho en?
richment of rural life. Patriotism, service
and sacrifice are essential qualities to ac?
complish the ends desired.'

THE POLICY TO BE PURSUED
Declares Press Reports of Condi?
tions Have Been Much
Exaggerated.
(By Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, July 0.?Life on tho
Isthmus of Panama Is to be made health?
ful, comfortable and enjoyable before
the real work of digging th,e sanal is be?
gun, according to an ? announcement o?
policy made to-day by Chairman Shonts,
of tho Panama Canal Commission. Mr.
Shonts said:
"Our first duty Is to create sound
underlying, conditions:,- This is now
vastly more important than the moving
"of dirt.- The men'mtis'irbavp suitable
houses In healthy' ^urrpuiidlrigs; they
must havcjjfwholesome ana nourishing
food at reasonable cost; they' "must
have suitable, transportation facilities
to' get to' and from their work, and
they must have opportunity for re?
creation afforded them. It will be the
policy of the commission to provide
these .esssentlalB as quickly as possible
and to only Increase ' the working
force, aside from the mechanics neces?
sary to provide these necessities, as
? fast as the facilities Indicated can be
..furnished. The commission realizes
that its adherence to'thlB policy will
result in tho actual handling of less
quantities of material temporarily,
but- It also knows thai with -healthy
underlying conditions vastly more wl|l
be accomplished later on at less cost
and with less friction. .1
"It will also be the Invariable policy
of the commission to give to the public
the actual conditions as they exist
on the Isthmus, without any attempt
to either color or conceal. So much
has been said by the press of an ex?
aggerated character about health con?
ditions there, that It may be wise to
recapitulate the facts regarding yellow
fever. There have been between nlno
nnd ten thousand employes on the
Isthmus since the disease first ap?
peared In May. During that month
there were twenty canal employes
stricken and two deaths. In June
thirty canal employes wore stricken
and four deaths, two of those dying
being Americans appointed in the
United States and two' persons ap?
pointed on the Isthmus. There wero
also three cases of fever among em?
ployes of the Panama Railroad' Com?
pany and no deaths. ' During tho
month of July, up to the Oth, thero
havo been no new cases, and thero
is but one employe under treatment.
"In reganl to the wages paid and
the statements that so many men have
left because of reduction In salaries,
tho fact Is that wages, Instead of hav?
ing been reduced, hnve been very con?
siderably Increased In every branch
of tho service on tho Isthmus during
the llfo of tho present commission."
?'?-? -
Neither Canal Nor Rajlroad.
Attorney-General William A. Andorson
will on next Thursday argue beforo the
Stato Corporation Commission a enso of
great Interest to the people of Fluvanna
and Albemarle and tho, Rlvnnna Valloy
generally. It' Is that of tho Board or
Supervisors of Fluvanna county vs. tho
Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad, tho pur?
pose of tho proceeding being to enforce
nn alleged contract mndo by the Old
Richmond and Alleghany Railroad when
It purchased tho old canal and tho Rl?

Charles W. Bailey Gets Divorce from Woman He Mar.
ried After Strange Adventure in
Mountains.
(Special to The Times-Dispatch.)
PHILADELPHIA, PA., July 6.-Charles
"W. Bailey, -vice-president of tho BalLey,
Banks and Blddlc Company, Chestnut
Street, Jewelers, was yesterday granted)
e. divorce from hla wife, Salena .A.' C.
Bailey, on the ground of desertion.
Mr. Bailey and Mrs. Salena A. C. Kerr,
widow of Chauncey F. Kerr, were mar?
ried in November, 1300. The, wedding fol?
lowed a remarkable adventure In the
Adirondacks. Mrs. Kerr was hostess at
tho mountain cottage of hor brother, E.
Holloway Coe. Charles W. Bailey was
one of the guests.
One day Mrs. Kerr and Mr. Bailey
were taking a stroll through tho woods.
Mr. Coe and another of his guests, Dr.
Dade, wero shooting. A rustlo of the
leaves, mistaken for the tread of a deer,
brought a shot from Dr. Dade's rifle and
two human cries of pain.
The bullet passed through Mr. Bailey's
body and lodged In one of Mrs. Kerr's
legs. Both lingered near death's door
for weeks, and Mrs. Kerr's life was only
saved by the amputation of the wounded
member. Love had been fanned to flame
In their hours of suffering, and a wedding
followed their convalescence. For two
years their llfo was ono of tranquility
and happiness.
Mr. Bailey, on January 21, 1902, received
a cablegram announcing the death of his
mother In Paris. His wife accompanied
him to the dock and bade him an offec
tlonato farewell as he hurried to the
French capital.'
Mr. Bailey arrived homo on February
10, on tho Touralno, In company with his
father and tho body of his mother. Hvo
was told by messenger his wife was HI
at the house of her mother,. No. 668 Fifth
Avenue, New York. He hastened thither
and was at once charged with unfaithful?
ness by hlB wife. Ho protested' his in?
nocence and appealed to E. Holloway
Coe, his wife's brother, but he sldod with
his sister. Mr. Bailey then left.
This was his last Interview with his
wife; as she has since refused to return
to his residence. Mr. Bailey .retained
John G. Johnson, Richard P. Whlto and
Thomas W. Barlow to defend him. Suit
was entered against Mr. Coo for slander.
At the. trial It was shown that allega?
tions were based upon an affidavit mado
by Violet Walsh, who declared that she
had been Induced to make a false state?
ment and that she did not know Mr.
Bailey. The latter won th* suit and
Immediately vbegan suit for divorce on
the grounds of desertion. This was do-'
elded In his favor yesterday.
