Seveiai days ago Mr. Pinekney sent
his car to the garuKe to ho- repaired.
There was tome delay in having it re?
turned, und when the matter was call?
ed to the uttcntion of the manager in?
structions were Issued to have the
work done at once, and Mr. Plnckney
was notified that he could got the car
yesterday afternoon, when ho culled,
it could not be fo .ml. After a search
xhowed th.it the car was not there,
much to the surprise of everybody it
raced up to tin- door with a Hat tire,
?and otherwise damaged, with Jorinson
and Williams calmly occupying the
front seat. Chauffeurs and others did
not look up a second time, but .dr.
Pinokney lookt d hard, for he recog?
nized hia car. even though his own
number had been removed and another
substituted. Then somebody remarked
that Johnson und Williams took the
car away on Friday and apparently
to disguise it. they tacked on a Ken?
tucky license and another local num?
ber which had been picked from under
the seat of a machine which happened
to have two. Mr. Pinckney's license
tag was not in sight.
The car was taken without the
know edge or consent of the garage
manager, but the proceeding? was so
high-handed that Mr. Pinckney decided
to have Williams and John?
son, who are mechanics, arrested. Deal?
ers and owners said last night that
he had blazed the way for a big joy

G. 0. P. Will NOT
Republicans of Third District De?
cide Not to Make Nomina?
tion for Congress.
Definite determination was reached
yesterday by the Third District Re?
publican Committee not to call a con?
vention for the nomination of a can?
didate for Congress this year. The de?
cision was unanimous.
This action was not unexpected, tt
has bten frankly stated by leading
Republicans of Richmond that if an
attempt were made to have precinct or
ward meetings to elect delegates to
such a convention, the entire machin?
ery of the party would be captured
by the Progressives, or followers of
Former Governor A. J. Montague Is
thus without even nominal opposition
?since the Progressives have simi?
larly decided not to nominate?except
for such action as may be taken uy
the Socialist or Socialist-Labor parties.
The district committee met In this
city yesieraay morning, and was' called
to order by cnairman Joseph W. Stew?
art The members of the committee,
who are the county and city chair?
men of the district, discussed the pend?
ing matter in full, finally adopting
a resolution to the effect that at
this time the best interests of the
Republican party could be aubserved
by not nominating a candidate.''
It was agreed, however, that an ad?
dress shall be prepared and published
to the voters of the district, calling
upon them to rally to trie support ol
President Taft in November, and a
committee was appointed on ways and
means for getting the Republicans ot
the district to the polls.
