I Finance Commitce Says There Is
No Popular Demand
SOME MORE SALARIES RAISED
Smith's Proposition to Advance
Money for Grading Is
Plans for reduction In the price of
?ras from 9u cents to'75 cents per
1.000 cubic feet were tabled by the
council Committee on Finance last
night, it being held that there was
no sufficient popular demand to make
a reduction which would mean an
annual cut in the revenues of the city
of from 150.000 to $60,000. Immediate,
ly thereafter the committee recom?
mended a considerable list of increases
in salaries of city employes, entailing j
an annual charge for the lncreaaea of 1
$2.1(94.60. The names of the employes
obtaining the Increases were not made
Reject Saetth's Prop salt tea.
The proposition of H. M. Smith. Field
Wilkau? and others for Improvement
of the Pollard tract in William Byrd
Park was reported to the Council for
rejection. The former ownera offered
to sell to the olty many times, but no
action was taken, though City Engi?
neer Boiling again and again recom?
mended the acquisition as an improve,
nient to the park. Recently the tract,
which embraces thirteen and one-ha.If
acres, was purchased by a syndicate
headed by Mr. Smith, and plans pre?
pared for its development Into building
sites. The promoters offered to dedi?
cate certain land for the opening of
streets along both sides of the tract,
and to advance $9.000 for the grading
of these streets, they to be reimbursed
in two annual instalments.
There was some feeling In the com?
mittee over the proposition, which was
reported for rejection by a vote of 5
to 2, some members of the commit- I
tee being of opinion that other sec?
tions of the city were more In need
of improvement, and that it was not
good policy to encourage building on
this tract, which is almost In the cen?
tre of William Byrd Park.
The committee recommended to the
Council an appropriation of $1.500 to
acquire from the Central *Y. M. C. A.
and to open an alley, the amount hav?
ing been fixed by condemnation com- I
missioners. Mr. Caskle. of the com?
mission, reported that $900 would be'
a sufficient compensation for the land
to be acquired. An appropriation of
$1.165 was recommended for payment
of alleged damages to abutting prop*
erty for the grading of Floyd Avenue
between Park and Meadow Streets.
An appropriation of $750 was rec?
ommended to pave in front of the
Home for Incurables on West Broad
Street and of $1,100 to pave sidewalks!
around the William F. Fox public'
I school on Hanover Avenue. j
j Ordinances prepared by Special Ac
| countant Crenshaw, regulating the

: mended to the Council. An approprla- I
i tion of $1.525 was recommended to pay !

An appropriation of $4.716 was rec?

for the defense of the Aliens, and
which acted as counsel for Floyd.
Claude and Victor Allen, will base his
appeal to the supreme tribunal of the
nation on what he claims to be a vio?
lation <by the Circuit Court of Wythe
County of a part of Article V. of the
Constitution of the United States. "Shis
provides as follows; "Nor shall any
person be subject for the same offense
to be twice put in jeopardy of life or
limb." It Is held now by Judge
Hairston, as it was held In his recent |
petition In the State Supreme Court,
that Claude Allen was twice tried for
the saune offense?conspiracy to mur?
der the officials of the Circuit Court
of Carroll County. He was tried for
killing Judge Massie, and given fif?
teen years In the State Penitentiary:
then tried for killing Commonwealth's
Attorney Foster, and found guilty of
murder In the first degree, the punish?
ment for which Is death by electricity.
The same point In Its relation to the
similar provision in the State Con?
stitution was overruled in Monday's
The procedure of appealing to the
United States Supreme Court is simi?
lar to that In the highest court In Vir?
ginia. The petition may be granted by
nary one of the judges. and Judge
Hairston will take his appeal from one
to the other, should he be refused by
thoss flrst approached. The granting
of an appeal will act as a stay of exe?
cution while the case will be put on
the docket and argued at somo later
day?probably far in the future, sine?
the docket is overcrowded. The court
is something like two years behind
with Its cases.
If all the Judges refuse the appeal,
the case Is as it stands to-day, and
Claude Swanson Allen will die with
his father on December 13.
Actloa la Fiaesasid
In reply to a question from a re?
porter for The Times-Dispatch as to
what would happen If no definite action
one way or the other has been taken
by the day now set for the execution.
Judge Hairston said that would not
happen. The appeal will be settled,
he said, oae way or the other, within
ten days, while he has In all more
than three weeks before the time ex?
The three weeks* respite was granted
yesterday morning by Governor Mann
to give the prisoners time to prepare
for the death that awaits them. He
had the formal papers leaned and dis?
patched to Superintendent James B.
Wood, of the State Penitentiary, who
took due note thereof, and who will
not now prepare the death chamber
for use Friday morning.
Judge Hairston arrived from Roa
noke yesterday morning, accompanied
by J. H. Morris, the stenographer, who
took the evidence In the Floyd Allen
trial. T?uxlng the afternoon the two
went to the penitentiary and talked
with the prttsnners.
Accordlng to the attorney, the con?
demned men are In fair spirits. "But."
he added, "as a matter of fact. I did
most ot the talking." The Aliens took
the news of the Supreme Court's action
calmly- They are little accustomed to
exhibit their emotions.

that the committee cannot prevent ve?

to be the sense of they committee that!
auch wagons would not be a part of'

It was felt that to permit auch a
