MAR POY THINKS
LAWS ARE UNFAIR
Chinaman Wails in County Jail
and Denies He Stole
Great is the misfortune of Mar Poy,
a Chinaman with almond eyca and a
taking disposition, and loud lire the
wails which he sends through the bars,
of the Henri'.? jail to the Gods of the
Celestial Kingdom. Mar Poy is In I
the (dutches "f the law, which clutch
appears likely tu lighten Into n
atrangle hold In Imitation of the hold,
Mar Poy took on a gfild watch, the]
property of a stranger.
-Me no llkee Meilern land," he wall?
ed plaintively fit.in hi bind the bars
yesterday afternoon. "Me flihd watch,I
alle samee get lock up."
However, various authorities, with n
prying turn of mind, differ with Mar
Poy in regard to the way the gold
watch came into his possession. Chlol
nniong thesf is C, L It, adle.-, a Han?
over county magistrate, who drove up
to the Hernien .nil yesterday with Mar
Poy In his care. Beadles has reason
to believe that tit, watch and heavy
gold chain mice dee,,rated the Vest "f
t> plain American, being removed sub
rcsa, as it wove. While the Hanover
magistrate Is. pursuing his Inquiries in
this direction; Mar Poy will continue
to meditate on the misfortunes of a
stranger it. a strange land from his
cell in the. Ilcnrlco jail.
Mar poy came to grief specifically
because of delicate attentions which
li< is alleged to have thrust upon scv
ttal young girls of the Pole Green
neighborhood. Readies called it as?
sault and arrested th ? Cclcstlai mi
that serious charge.
"Me no hurtce ^urls.' wailed Mar
Poy yesterday. 'Sie p.vtlt., alle samoe
get allcstcd." ''
In spite of the prisoner's protesta?
tions that he merely wished to be po
)itc. Bodies insists that Mai Poy
made himself offensive to ihe young
women, und will press this charge
against him. The ownership of the'
watch and gold chain will be further
investigated. The crowning 'charge!
against the almon-eyed Celestial Is
desertion fiom a vessel now believed
to be dock,-,! In Norfolk. Beadles says
there is a toward of Sir. ?offered by the
captain i.f the ship foi the artest ?f
the deserter, Mar Poy.

Subcommittee on Streets Op?
poses Movement to Widen
Them on Broad Street.
COST REGARED AS HEAVY
Merchants, However, Prepared to
Carry Fight Before Full
The suin ommlttoe on Street* voted
unanlmousl> yesterday afternoon to
report udvcrselj the proposition t<>
widen tin sidewalks on Broad Street
tor a distance of seven blocks west of
Tenth. The action followed a lengthy
hearing, during which speeches were
made for and against ttie measure by
a large number of interested citizens.
The motion to report unfavorably was
made by Councilman iv 11. Fergusson.
of Lee, and was adopted without a
W. It. Schmidt, a Broad Street prop?
erty owner, led the lislit lor the pro?
posed Widening, and presented a num?
ber of business men who favored the
seht me. He stated alter the meeting
thai he had by no means, given up the
fight, but would take it before the
full committee, which meets to-night.
SM) Walks Are Wide Enough.
The opposition took the ti.*nd thai
the sidewalks on Broad Street are as
wide and Wider than those of the b?g
gest business thoroughfares of the
.country?considerably w'der than the
sidewalks of liroud\ca>. New Volk. To
wbien tin- walks acveu feel on each
side ?f the street, as proposed, it was
Objected, woul<l effeci an undesirable
iiai rowing of the roadway and would
lead to a congestion of traffic. In ad?
dition, it was urged, the plan would
commit the city to an endless scheme
of widening the sidewalks the entire
length of Broad Street, and plunge It
into great expense.
City Engineer Holling' produced a
drawing of a cross, sect.on of Broad
Street showing the location of sub?
terranean pipes and conduits. A
rough estimate of the expense, lie Haid,
convinced him that the widening of
the sidewalks alonu the seven blocks
under consideration could not be ef?
fected at a cost of less than liM.OOJ.
Approximately $5,000 of this amount,
he admitted, would he offset by a
saving arising from the difference in
cost between granolithic sidewalk
paving and the smooth pavlr.sr which
would have to l>o placed upon the
strip, in accordance with the contract
The proposition, said Mr. Boiling,
would involve the moving of every
water basin, water stop-cock, and gas
and clectrio connection alons the
route. It would also make necessary
the moving of . very ornamental Jigrht
pole. The new strip of sidewalk
which would be added, he thought,
would give the walk an Unsightly
patchwork upp<M ra ace.
Too Narrow for Crowds,
Friends of the plan, amoni; whom
were W. B. Schmidt, A. II. Christian.
J. B. Klam. W. II. Zimmerman, Moses
Thalhtmer, .1. G. Corley. Julian Tyler,
James R. Gordon and Warner Moore,
were unlformally of the opinion that
Broad Street sidewalks in ihe retail
district were already too narrow to
accommodate the crowds, and will in
a few years be wholly inadequate.
A number e,f these were especially
in favor of the "scheme because it
would have the effect of narrowing
the crossing distance between the
north and south sides of Broad eMrert
and thus make for a more equitable
division of the business and approxi?
mate equalisation in property values.
The two sides of the street, it was
r?'.nte,| out hy advocates e,f the plan,
aire now practically isolated as re?
gards each other, a condition of af?
fairs which is leading merchants to
establish themselves op side sti-e.-ts
rather than 'to aid in makinc Rroid

Greener as secretary and treasurer
and the appointment ot the commit?
While not taken up formally, the
question of ti c midwinter oratorio
concert was discussed. There was
uniformity of opinion among the
board members that the rendition ot
tlic oratorio "Messiah" next winter
by tin- Wednesday Club chorus, the
Richmond 1'hllliarnionlc Orchestra and
a few stars would supply a public
demand for such music.
Tile actual plans for this concert
will be worked out In detail during
the summer by the music committee.
Tins committee will not only select
ttfie oratorio, to be sung, but will
have practical contiol of the details
of the concert.
Not satisfied with the tremendous
chorus of Sun voices last year, the
board of governors Is making prepar?
ations to increase the chorus to the
600 mark If possible, a committee
on ithe chorus was appointed, und I
these men will make such an effort
as has never been seen before to en - |
list a chorus of the size desired. An |
early beginning of training is among
tlw (novations planned by the board.
