Council Committed on Ordinance. Char?

designed to regulate the use of streets
for building material. Without com-1

on the hearing, which was lit times

II. L. Matthews, John T. Wilson nnl
Gilbert J. Hunt headed a large delega?
tion, made up of the leading building
contractors of the city, In opposition
to further restrictions. Mr. Matthews
claimed tlint the present law was am?
ple, were It enforced, hut later discus?
sion showed defects In the statute which
wcro admitted. Whether It was worth
while, to attempt further restrictions
?heu the Police Department makes
little or no effort to enforce the pres?
ent statute, was a matter of tome de

The builders were unanimous In their
opposition to the proposed new ordi?
nance, which, among other provisions,
limits the spate for material In front'
of a new structure to one-third of the
street. Instead of one-half, as at pres?
ent, and to the clause which requires
a permit from the Building Inspector
before placing any obstruction in the
street whatever. Too many permits
and too much red tape were now re
nulled, the builders asserted, and the
added provisions, while giving little
a. tun! relief, could only result in a
considerable Increase in the cost of
Chief Joynes, of the Fire Depart?
ment, presented the views of that de?
partment ah to the. necessity for clear

Superintendent Henry Cohn, of the
Strevt Cleaning Department, was vigo?
rous In his criticism of btilldcrs. who.
ho said, sprawled about the stroots In
any manner they pleased, making little
effort to move their rubbish, and in
many cases which he mentioned by
street and number, using the city
streets a'i a storage ;lnd t-ale yard for
old brick, sometimes for months at a
time. Mr. Cohn also sharply criticised
the street railway company for its dila?
tory work o:: Fast Main Street, part of
tho street now being torn up from
Twelfth to Eighteenth Streets. He
?uggtste i that where track rclaid,
permits for opening the streets be
granted only for a few blocks at a
time, and that stringent regulations be
adopted to require builders to finish
up thfcir worl: and clear away all rub?
bish and refuse material.
City Engineer Boiling gave a num?
ber of suggestions for changes in the
ordinance on the subject, pointing out
defects both In the present law and
In what Is proposed. He saw no ob?
jection to tho use of one-half of the
? tr.-et, provided the street were of suf?
ficient width, but thought material
should at all times be kept back fully
six feet from the car tracks.

nance In entirely blocking tho gutter

Mr. Matthews, for tlit: builders, pro?
tested that the proposed ordinance was
class legislation. In that It placed re?
strictions oh contractors tor buildings,
w Itilo almost unlimited use of the
streets Is allowed to contractors for
the city or the street car company,
who block the streets frequently for
months nt .1 time; and in more serious;
end difficult ways than by tho mere
stacking of material. .Mr. Boiling ad?
mitted that this was to some extent
true, but onllod attention to the great
difficulties of excavating under crowd?
Cliiof Joynes said he always received
notice from the engineer's Department
when any street was to be closed to
traffic or so blocked that apparatus
could not get through, and that this
was posted in each engine house for the
Information of drivers, but that the

Calls It an Outrage.
Charles M. Joyce, an attorney of
Baltimore, brother of the Rev. W. H.
H. Joyce, said this afternoon:
"I conMdsr the conviction of my

"The charge was framed soielv and
only upon the fact that my brother
wrote a letter to a married woman, In
which he expressed his love for her.
The prosecuting counsel in the case, In
his argument, stated that he was con?
vinced that Mr. Joyce was absolutely
Innocent of any criminality, nor could
th.re be any such Inference drawn!
from the letter.
"The trial was conducted without,
any regard whatever to the legal rules
of evidence. We are determined to
seek vindication in the civil courts,
where we are convinced that ultimate j
.justice will be done. It is my Inten?
tion to move my law office from Bal?
timore lo Roanoko and sacrifice every
other consideration In the effort to
clear the name of my brother from
this outrageous Injustice. One of the
committee who drew the Ind'ctmcnt

have been Indiscretion instead of im?
morality, and that hid it not been for

been so worded.

does not so regard the meaning of tlTTs

there is legal redrera.

Initial public hearings on the Jordan
enabling act to permit the calling of
an election by petition on the question
ot State-wide prohibition, and the con?
clusion ot the investigation Into the
affairs ot the Virginia Book Company,
were tho matters of principal impor?
tance yesterday in connection with tho
session of the Legislature. These two
happenings were In committees, for the
Senate continued to transact no busi?
ness of Importance, and the House
spent most of Its time in discussing a
motion to send a bill to a committee,
which was llnally accomplished.
I Aside from these matters, the Gen?
eral Assembly, In joint session, com?
pleted the election of Senators Martin
and Swanson nnd appointed committees
to notify them ofllcially of their
Threatened With Defeat.
i Threats of political death and annl
| hllation were hurled at the heads of
members of the Legislature who op?
pose the enabling act by speaker after
speaker of the Antlsaloon League of
Virginia at the hearing yesterday af?
ternoon and last night before tho Elec?
tions Committee. Saying they repre?
sented the people of Virginia, the ad?
vocates of the Jordan bill set forth
their claims to he allowed a vote on
the subject of tlte open saloon.
Tho affirmative rested for tho lime
being, and tho committee rose, to meat
again on Tuesday morning at 10
o'clock, when the opposition will pre?
sent its side. The Antlsaloon ? League
will have the close, but whether or
not it will bi? reached on Tuesday !s
Would Help "the Hing."
Unique Inderd was the speech ot
Thomas Whitehead, of Amherst. which
concluded the hearing. He made h'a
appeal .w.ttbout sentiment and -without?
temperance argument. Ho called him?
self a "ring Democrat," saying he be?
longed to the Tenth District organiza?
tion and the State "nmchlne." H0 ar?
gued that the machine had been In tho
saddle for twenty years, und can stay ?
there so long as It continues to givo
tho best administration.
To keep Its hold on the voters of Vir?
ginia, said Mr. Whitehead. It should
pass tho enabling act, and It will thon
continue In power. Ho had read that
twenty-four Senators would volo
ngalnst the bill, and he said tho "boys"
should get together and soo that ill
becomes law, ho that tho twenty-fouf
could go and Join "the kickers," tho
antlmachlne faction In the party In
Mr. Whitehead made a challenge fop
a Joint caucus of the Democrats of tha
two houses, which he thought would
show a clear majority for tho measure.
Tt Is believed tho House committee
will report tho bill unfavorably.
Bonk Cnuipituy Hearing.
When the Investigation as to the
Virginia Book Company was concluded
last night, after two hearings for the,
dny, it seemed that Its verdict would
be favorublo to that concern. At tho
night session of tho special House com?
mittee, headed by Dr. Kent, officials
of the Department of Public Instruction
appeared and said that the book com?
pany had formulated a system calcu?
lated to bring about an adequate dis?
tribution of school books. They evi?
dently approvod its operations.
At the morning session Attroney?
General Williams made vigorous at-*
tacks on tho company, saying It was a
combination In restraint of trade, that
Its business should bo suppressed, ami
that tho book publishers who havo
made contracts with It should be sued
by tlto State. The committee did not)
reach a decision, but may have ltl
ret.dy for the House to-day.
Bill Is Hcconiuttttcd.
The House at Its session yesterday,
sent back to committee tho bill to pre?
vent crtminals and idiots front trans*
mltting their tendencies to children.
In addition. It began, but did not fin?
ish, a debuto on a reduction in the ex
I emption of tho wages of laboring men
from $50 to J23 a month, applicable
only to claims for rent, necessaries ot!
life and wages of other laboring men.
The advocates of the bill said It was
designed to protect the business men,
while also caring for tho families ot
tho laborers. Its opponents said 16
changed a system which has worked
well for years, and might work injus?
tice to men of small Income.
In both bodies the report of tho Vir*
glnla Education Commission was ro
ceiyed. It advocates a mill tax for tho
maintenance of higher institutions of
learning, recommends that (here should
he but one medical college in Virginia,
declli.es to favor the establishment of a.
woman's college at this time, and
makes many interesting suggestions as*
to the State's educational system anfl
ns to the work done In the schools.
