City Council lias Refuse J to

J Wh.n the Police Commissioners I
make their annual inspection of the j

shall .streets, to-morrow afternoon. In |
connection with the fall review of the !
force. It is expected that their at?

Of prisoners, .several tunes the Police
Hoard has made requests of the City
CsatSteil for an appropriation to make
much-needed Improvements at this sta?
tion, for as the city's population in
trasses the number of arrests grows
At tins station there are but six
cells, not including the dungeon,
which is rarely used, and it is no un?
usual sight to rind thirty, forty or
fifty prisoners confined in this small
space at one time. This is especially i
true on Saturday night and Sunday, j
when many minor arrests are made.)
Occasionally the cells will each be |
occupied by ten or twelve prisoners. |
There is but one bunk In each, so it i
is obvious that the unfortunates must j
seek seating and sleeping room upon I
the floor and upon one another.
No Drtaklag Water.
No drinking water is provided in the
cells for the inmates, as at the First
Station, and the sanitary arrangement
is not regarded as good, while light?
ing facilities are also poor.
There is ample space In the cell
room to install more cages upon the
floor, and with the addition of a second
tier ample quarters for all offenders
would be provided. The commissioners
have had this in view for some time,
and have been anxious to make these
changes, 1/tit have heen unable to
do so because of failure of the Coun?
cil to provide the money.
One of the most deplorable facts
of the lack of room is that occa?
sionally it is necessary to detain per?
sons for minor offenses whose walk in
life is far above the station of the
usual occupant of a station house cell.
The majority of them are habitual
drunkards, vagrants, panhandlers and
the scum of the lower world. But with
the lack of space It is necessary to
confine the two classes in the same
Werner Waats Improvements.
Chief of Police Werner is a hearty
advocate for these much-needed im?
provements, and has frequently
brought the matter to the attention
of the commissioners, but they are
powerless to act unless the Council
will make an appropriation.
Conditions at the First Station are
better, but efforts are also being made
to get money to make needed Improve?

But Manager, Who Was Object
of Action, Notes Appeal to
Henrico Circuit Court.
After about twelve witnesses had
testified yesterday afternoon that the
odors from the Richmond Refining
Compapy s plant in Varina District, j
Henrico County, were extremely dis?
agreeable and obnoxious. Magistrate
H. S. Sunday imposed a line of |59
on the concern through C H. Craw,
who was its manager on October I.
when the acUon was instituted.
The trial was originally set for Oc?
tober 15. but postponed on that date
until yesterday, because of the Inabil?
ity of Commonwealth s Attorney Frank
T. Satton. Jr., to attend. The action,
which is the second against ths Re?
fining Company within the past year,
was begun by Joseph E. Herbert, who
swore oat a criminal warrant against
Mr. Crew on October 1. Mr. Herbert
lives In the vicinity of the plant, sad
claims that he Is affected by the odors
snd that the plant Is a nuisance.
Jollen Gunn, counsel for the Re?
fining Company, noted an appeal from
ths magistrate's decision yesterday. It I
is probable that the case will sttrsct j
especial sttentlon when It comes toj
trial In Henrico Circuit Court, because
of Its Importance as a test case.
The first prosecution of the concern
wsa began In July last for reasons
similar to those behind the present ac?
tion, bat Improvements were made in
the company'a plant, which bettered j
conditions to such sn extent that the
matter was dropped. At that time the
officers believed thst the Improvement

New york City Cnapter. Virginia fob -

indorsing an editorial appearing; In a
Koanoke. paper to the ettect that J L>.
Kggieston. Jr.. "la not a fit man"' for
the presidency of the Institute, "if ha
l>e appointed." said the editorial. -It
will be not because of his attain?
ments or hie carter as an educator,
but because of his political influence
and tbe pressure which he thereby
can bring to bear upon the trustees.
Under his administration Virginia
Polytechnic Institute once again will
enter upon a period of confusion and
investigations, and the dignity and
honor that should direct and crown ita
labors will be converted Into amazing
rumors, sensational charges and wide?
spread and Injurious notoriety."
Tha chapter's resolutions are as fol?
At the regular monthly meeting of
the New York City Chapter. Virginia
Polytechnic Institute Alumni Associa?
tion, held at the City Club, city of New
York. October 25, 1912, an editorial,
taken from the Evening World, of
Roanoke, Va. under date of October
1?. 1112, was presented and read. There
was a full discussion of the whols
subject, snd the following resolution
was unanimously adopted:
Resolved, that the New York City
Chapter, composed oi more than forty
graduates and former atudents of the
Virginia Polytechnic Institute. in meet?
ing assembled, do hereby Indorse, ab?
solutely and without qualification, tha
editorial that appeared In the Even'ng
World on October 1?, 1913. And It la
ths sense of this meeting that tha
board of visitors of the Polytechnlo
Institute will make a serious mistake
if they do not select for the presidency
of the institute a man of proven execu?
tive ability nd widely known as a
successful college president. It Is dis?
tinctly desirable that this man shsll
have Intimate knowledge of technical
education and a wide acquaintance
among technical men.
It Is further resolved that a copy
of this resolution ahall be forwarded
to members or the board of visitors
snd to esch local chapter, and that ths
