Henry C. Stuart Tells of His
Own Conversion to Modern
FAVORS BUILDING AT FAIR
Should Be Devoted to Agricul?
tural Exhibits?Rewards for
Boys on Farm.
"Gone forever are the dark day* of
agriculture tn Virginia. After forty
years of hard times for the ?armer.
we have entered upon a new era." So
said Henry C. Stuart last ntrht. ad
dreasing; an audience of farm demon?
strators and others Interested in agri?
culture, which crowded the floor of
the Senate chamber.
Mr. Stuart Indorsed in highest terms
the work done by T. O. Sandy and his
men, who go about teUing the farmer
how to raise two blades of grass where |
one grew before. He also praised the |
work of Governor Mann In focusing -
attention upon agriculture.
As a direotor of the State Fair As
soc.ia.tion, Mr. Stuart pledgod his best
efforts to secure for exhibit purposes
a building commensurate with the im- .
portauice of the work being done by j
tha demonstrators. He went further. j
and said he would do his best to re?
ward the farmers a little more and.
"bobtailed horses a Uttle less."
Reed taavae of High Prices.
The high cost of living, w>Kh the va- '
rious remedies proposed, was the text
of Mr. Stuart'? address. He said the
constant immigration, mainly of oon- j
sumers, with the drift from the ooun- j
try to centres of population, resulting j
in an increase In the consuming class
and a decrease in producers, was the
real cause of the high cost of Hving.
The solution was bo increase the pro?
duction of the producer.
"We know now." said Mr. Stuart,
?that the yield of the average farm
can be practically and profitably
doubled. 1 would not say ae> it 1 had
not done it myself. For many years I
went along, content to make forty
busheus of corn and fifteen bushels of
wheat to the acre, until 1 found that
others were doing far better than I- i
For years 1 had been following in the i
old paths, passing by the writings orj
men who were leading in new things ]
as the work of theorists. Now, hav-1
lag; learned (better thing*. 1 make ,
eighty bushels of corn where I made '
forty before; I make twenty, twenty
gee and even thirty bushels of ?heat I
on land where formerly I made twelve j
to fifteen. Instead of one ton of hay
to the acre, I have a yield of two and j
two and a half tons All this is done
with little Increase In the cost of labor, j
so that I can get the additional corn.)
for instance, at a cost of ten to twelve'
cents the bushel."
Salvation Far Beys. . j
Above all. however, Mr. Stuart placed
the good of the boys. With machinery
which has removed drudgery, there
was no longer a good reason, in his
opinion, why the boy should not earn
his living In the Meld. Instead of
wearing a cap and a cigarette, let
him wear overalls. He will be more
of a gentleman and have more respect
for himself. Let him co-operate with
his father to get the best results from
I the land. It will mould his character, j
' develop good habits, and he will make
j far more money than in city pursuita
It is high time we were teaching our
boys that if they earn money in any
way save bp the sweat of their brow,
they are not entitled to the distinc?
tion which the community has to offer.
?Far better than a check for SlOO.Ot'O
when the boy becomes twenty-one is
a good constitution, good morals, a
love of the farm and a knowledge of
how to make the most of It."
T. O. Sandy addressed his forty-five
demonstration agents briefly, saying
that the exhibits at the State Fair
are fully fifty per cent better than
were those of last year.
"I am more Impressed, every day!
that I live," said Mr. Sandy, with the 1
iaiportance of this work. I believe it,
to be the greatest work that ever,
touched the people of this State."

NOT BEHIND DID
Anderson Denies That Lipper ft
Co. Are Secretly Acting
for His People.
TELLS WHAT DIRECTORS DID
Resolution Instructed Officers
Not to Seek New Franchise
From City Council.
Neither the Virginia Railway and
Power Company nor the Oould Inter?
ests are back of the Md presented by
Arthur Upper ft Co., of New York,
for the proposed lighting and power
franchise offered for sale by the city
of Richmond at the request of the
R-iohmond and Hernien Railway Com?
pany, according to Henry W. Anderson,
vice-president and general counsel of
the Virginia Railway and Power Com?
Before leaving for New Tork last
night, Mi. Anderson was asked the
direct question if the bid Of the New
York brokerage firm was presented on
behalf of the Interests he represents.
Mr. Aadersea's Statement.
"The heard of directors of the Vir?
ginia Hallway aad fewer Cssnpssy. at
Its last meet las, held es September 2T,
considered the sutler of bidding ?a
thla franchise. I advised the directors
that 1 had gmr doabte ef Us validity,
and s resolution was adapted by the
beard at that tlase directing that ae
bid he aasde ea behalf of the eaaapaay.
1 mm also la a position te state posi?
tively that ae oae has been aathertsed
to bid on behalf of Freak Jap (esald.
Mr. oould has Jest arrived la this
country a -d knows sot blag ef the sit?
uation, hsvlag left the whole swatter
la the hands ef the directors. 1 eaa
?t?te positively that neither the heard
of directors of the Virginia KaUway
aad Power Cesapaa? nor the Ooald
Interests have aathertsed aay oae to
bid ea tain fraacklae far these.**
Mr- Anderson added that he had
heard of the Mrm of Arthur Upper Ac
Co. as a stock exchange house of
good standing, but he had had no per?
sonal dealing with It and did not
know members of the firm personally.
Only Two Bids Basasvcd.
The pending franchise to use the
streets and alleys of the city fur dis- ?
tributing electric current was rs-1
quested of the City Council nearly aj
year ago by the Richmond and Hen- j
rico Railway Company, a proposed
draft being submitted by Samuel I*
Kelley. its general counsel. A sub?
committee on Streets recommended a,
number of amendments and also that
the Council seriously consider whether
it Is advisable to grant a second light
and power franchise, thus leading ta |
a duplication of plant and Investment j
with the probability of later consoll- J
dation and increased charges to pay.
a return on the double capitalisation, i
Most of the amendments recommended j
by the s r.-com mit tee. designed to
protect the city and secure the ae- '
tua? construction ef a plant by the ;
party securing the franchise, were :
eliminated, and trie proposed fran?
chise ordered advertised once a week !
for four weeks as required by law.
Bids were received by ths Common '
Council last Monday night. Mr. Kel- j
ley hlddlnr 110 for the proposed rights.
Judge Oeorge l? Christian presented ?
a ?ertled check for f:>,000 with a bid i
on behalf of Orthur Upper ft C-..
bankers and brokers of New Tork. All
Papers were referred to the Commit- .
tee on Streets which will probar'y set!
a date ne?t week to hear all parties. |
May "eject Any er All Bids.
The city reserves the right to re?
ject any or all bids or to amend the
proposal and re-advertlse for bids.
Before the Mns were received. Mr
Anderson announced that his company
would not seek to buy the franchise,
as he contends that It is defective tn
important requirement", and If granted
In its present form. It will he con?
tested in the courts
But the production of an unexpected
hid from outside sources led to the l
circulation of a persistent rumor th*t !

terday afternoon exactly 11 v. Claim?
ing superior knowledge on all sub?
jects, he announced that each play at
Boston was Hashed ou the board any?
where from thirty minutes to an hour
later. It did not occur to him that
Snodgrass. the lirst man up for the
Ulants, had a light burning opposite
his name at 2 o'clock, when the con?
test opened. But when he kept on
talking somebody offered to bet him
110 that the service was practically
instantaneous, and that somebody won.
The man who sends each play aa it
is made sits at a telegraph key at
the ball park. When the umpire tails i

flashed. The wire runs tiitough di?

fact which was explained to the wiae j
guy who lost the ten spot.
Moreover, the game yesterday ran I
for two hours and thirty-eight min?
utes. By twenty minutes to 5 o'clock
the megaphone had announced that j
the game had been called, and the ,
crowds were hustling away from j
Bank Street. Every man with ordi- '
uary intelligence understands. of j
course, that each play is received al?
most at the moment it is made. Time I

is wrong, boys to bet. another sucker
might be sitting out on the limb this
afternoon. It will be mighty easy to
cut him down.
Some other people lost money last
night by wagering that if the sun eet
in Richmond at 6:14 P. M yesterday,
it set in Boston at 5:1*. The Weather
