AT MOUNT 6RETNA
General Sale Has Received Let?
ter From Hay Placing
Blame on Taft.
The last hope for Virginia militia
men to take pnrt In the tschoduled
joint encampment and manoeuvres at
Ait. Oretna, Pa., this July was dis?
sipated yesterday by a statement Crom
"it Is possible that the encampment
may he held later >n the summer,"
said General Sale, "hut President
Taft's veto of the military appropria?
tion i>lll has made it Impossible for
the Mt. Oretna manoeuvres to ho con?
ducted In July, as originally intended.
The President's refusal to approve the
appropriation hill leaves the War De?
partment Without funds to curry on
the scheduled manoeuvres."
There is a division of sentiment
among the Virginia Volunteers in re?
gard to President Tale's action, some
thinking General Leonard li. Wood
had better be sacrificed rather than
the entire national guard be thrown
out of a summer's practical experi?
ence, and others contending that the
President did the best thing possi?
ble, even if the hinges of the war
office ute left a bit rusty.
T:? whole blame for the failure ot
the Mt. oretna encampment is laid
em President Taft's shoulders by Rep?
resentative Hay, chairman bf the
Hemse Commltteer<e>n Military Affairs,
In a letter wbrch*,*hu8 .ui.-a been re?
ceived by General Salv. Hotli Gem ral
Sale- and Mr. Hay hope that the ap?
propriation bill will be forced through
in time for the encampment t.. be
held In August, but It Is deflniti ly
ussut- .1 that nothing will bo done In
this direction until after ti.e- Demo?
The Joint manoeuvres at Mt. Grotna
were planned ns the greatest Held <
operations ever executed by United
States regular troops .111! t'tato Mili?
tia, Hnd the failure of the plans lias
provoked severe disappointment to the
Virginia Volunteers, who were pre?
paring to attend the manoeuvres.
Cnher Joint encampments all 6'vei the
country have beCh held up In the
? arnt- manner by the President's Veto
of the appropriation bill.

city required that the smooth nav-1
nig be of asphalt blocks m?nufac- I
turcd and sold by the Washington
Asphalt Block and Tile Company,
which was a competitor of the local'
company In the recent ulddlng. It !
is stilted o lithe best authority that i
the Washington company will refuse
absolutely to lurnish I J. Smith At |
Company with the material at a rea- '.

Though nothing in this rocard has

a l?ge assembly room, where sales may
be posted and na tions hell, together
with offices for the secretary and treas?
urer, a special room for meetings of
the board of directors and c-mferen'-es,
somewhat similar to. though much
larger than the quarters of the Build?
ers- Exchange, it has been proposed
that the exchange reserve quarters in
the new building of the Chamber of
Commerce and the Manufacturer*.' Ex?
hibit, if this is decided upon It win
be necessary to take temporary rooms

"Aside from the business utility of]
tho exchange." said President f misten'

organization stand for something'
higher and better. It is to got to-j
tether ttie best men in the business
for tlte purpose or operating on the]
tiighesl possible plane?to make the
Richmond Real Estate Exchange asj
strong both commercially and clvlcallyl
as the Chamber of i: mmerce and other
commercial bodies of the city. Our
officers and membership In the start are i
the best and most widely known men
In the business, end I believe thati
every one of them will do all in his
power to hoid the exchange up to the
ideals that guided Its organizers. Thus
far we have taken up no such questions'

things that must later on come before

for the women who have t<> work In

Those who attended the meeting

affirmative for the enactment of any

One or two of the Aldermen voted
against the appropriation under the

President Robert Whiltct. Jr., called
the Aldermen to order at S:ta o'clock.
A large audience crowded th* Council
I chamber and pressed against the rall
l Ing to hear the franchise discussed.
City Clerk Ben T, August read the rcc
' ommendatton of the Common Council,
I which passed the ordinance last week I
by a vote of '.'I' to 7. An effort on)
his part to read the provisions of the!
I franchise met with a motion to dls
pmse with the resiling. The motion
I pr eel pp.a ted the debate of the evening,]
! whl<-h ended in a victory for the metf.
'hers favoring a postponement.
"In my experience of ten ye/vrs In
I the Council." said Alderman Baiton H.
Grundy. of Henry, "the motion Just
made is unprecedented. Never was an
j ordinance fraught with such Importance j
as this one passed without a careful i
i reading. I move that the ordinance bei

The Idea was lnodrsed by Alderman

anxious, he said, that every one who
wanted to be heard on the matter bin |
, given a chance to express himself, and [
was opposed to rushing the proposition '
through ut high speed.
At this point Alderman Grundy ac- I
ccpted as a substitute for his motion !
another one calling for final action
on next Wednesday night. Alderman
J. W. Moore, of Washington, spoke In
opposition to further delay. The mat

Powers Arraigns Vtrnin Koller.
Alderman Joseph E. Powers. of
' Madison, took a decided stand against
preclpltato action and made u strong
plea for a week's time in which to
examine the net in all its details.
"I. for erne," he said, "have not had
a reasonable time to examine Into the
merits of this ordinance, and am not
I prepared to vote upon It until I do.
The printed copy which 1 have was
furnished me through the courtesy of
the Richmond and Ifenrlco Railway
Company, and did not reach my haneis
until last night. 1 am opposed to
rushing through sn ordinance which
means so mt'.'h to the city of Rich?
mond f|at 11 it hau been regularly
i printed and submitted to every mem?
ber of this body."
Mr. Powers stated that he was ready
and willing to vote to givo the Rich
| mond and flenrlco Company a light
and power franchise if it were so
framed as to protect the city and j
its citizens, hut not before. In Its j
present form, he snl<l. be did not I
think the franchise offered adequate '?
protection either to the municipality

I franchise. Mr. Towers pointed out a
' number of sections which, \n Iiis opin
| Ion, were drawn In a faulty manner.
\ There was an apparent conflict, he
1 thought, between one section. Which
conferred upon tho streets commit?
tee the power to regulate extensions,
and niifither which gave to the City
Council tho final authority In mis
A situation might arise, he said, in
which the Streets Committee repre- I
i sented the will of the people, but Its
I action could be nullified by a Council I
which might or might not be In sym?
pathy with tho committee.
A glaring Insufficiency, he thought,
was contained In the section directing
that certain distribution systems shall
bo begun within three months and be
completed within twelve month-: after
final action by the Committee on
Streets. The term "action." he
thought, was extremely hid. Unite and
might be given a number of Interpre?
tations. Completion of the designated
work, he Insisted, should he maelc com?
