CARE FOR DRUNKS
Superintendent of Hospital
Would Make Bars and Drug?
stores Furnish Treatment.
A special tax on saloons and drug
stires to maintain ai. institution under
j State control for the separate caiw of
, contii med drunkards and drug habitues
; is the startling recommendation made
by Dr. J. T. DeJarnette. superintendent
of the W estern State ' Hospital, at
staunten, in hjs annual report to Gov?
While separate care for these classes
has been advocated in Virginia for
some time, it is indeed worthy of com?
ment when in an oftiical paper an offi?
cer of the State says the Legislature
shouUi tax the people who aell to the
victims of habits.
Dr. DeJarnette says the number of
! drug fiends and drunkards applying
for admission to the State hospitals
I for the Insane is increasing annually.
As soon as they are removed from the
' source of trouble they recover and are
soon dlscahrKcd as cured. Almost in?
variably they bo back to their habit.
The amount to be charged the saloon?
keepers and drugglats would be, ac?
cording to Dr. DeJarnette'8 plan, ap?
portioned to the needs of the institu?
tion, which would be managed by the
State. Therefore the dealers would be
more careful in selling to those who
cannot control themselves, for by
so doing their tax would be lessened.
Such people, it is held by scientific
men. should be made to work at least
a year on a farm. Some say it would
take three years to effect a cure.
Dr. I>eJarnette mentions the alarm?
ing incerase of pellagra amontr insane,
people. In the Western Hospital the
deaths last year numbered twelve, or
13 per cent, of the total of 102. This
is 50 per cent more than the deaths |
there from tuberculosis.

Procedure la Washington.
At the oflice of the clerk of the Su?
preme Court ->t the United States. In
Washington. It was stated yesterday
that the application would be presented
to the Justice having Jurisdiction over
such matters In the Fourth Circuit, and
that as Virginia Is In this circuit it
would necessarily come before th?
Chief Justice. Each member of the
court Is assigned one Circut for a cer?
tain length of time, and bef irs htm
must be brought all applications in
the nature of a writ of error, unless
some great and unexpected emergencj
arises. Then it is possible that appli?
cation may be made out of order to
one of the other members of the court.
However, in the present case, applica?
tion for the Allen writ will be made
to Chief Justice Whita He may either
decide the matter Immediately, or,
shjuld he think proper, may take the
matter under advisement and give his 1
decision at a later date. I
Inasmuch as Claude Allen has until I
December 13 to live, it Is likely that
Junstlce White will not make known
his answer when the application is j
made, but that he will consider it for j
a day or two. In the latter case the
answer will be made to Juage X. TL j
Hairston. Should Justice Whlt? grant
the writ, then the case will be regu
larljr docketed on the court calendars
and take its turn to be heard, oming
t .? a decision some time in the future, i
Should it be denied, the matter will
end with the death of Claude Allen j

Virginia and Carolina Students

has existed in Richmond since the long
forgotten time when the Virginia

aJumni of the Stalte university will en?
tertain the teams and students of both
institutions on next Thursday night, la
honor of the annual jrridiri-n contest.
The affair this time will assume a
different appearance from that whw-h
has characterized it during the last
few years. Because of the fact that it
has been found Impossible to secure
any one of the local theatres for the
exclusive use of the hosts and guests,
it has been decided by the Richmond
chapter of the University of Virginia
Alumni to revive the Thanksgiving

The Thanksgiving germans were for?
merly the most popular means which
the local Virginia alumni employed for
thetr annual entertainments. later
they have been superseded by theatre
parties, but It la thought that a return
to the earlier custom will prove en
joyahle. The german will offer the
alumni and their wives the first oppor?
tunity in some years of getting to?
gether for a congenial evening.

Police Captain Mitinterpreted
Rule Relating to Report?
ing of Crimea.
While not sustaining the charge of
neglect of duty preferred against Cap
( tain of Dele?tlves Thomas J. McMahon
by Acting Chief of Police Oeorge E.
j Pollock, the Board of Police Commis?
sioners, after hearing the evidence
I last night, found McMahon guilty or
j misinterpretation of section I? of the
? Police Manual, and directed that in
the future he report any Information
of a crime on the instant either to thsh
; Chief or Acting Chief of Police.
The verdict read by Mayor Alnsllc to
Captain McMahon was:
"I am directed by the board to say
to you that In their Judgment, you
misinterpreted section it. but as it
seems there has been so much misinter?
pretation by other officers. th?y are of
I the opinion to dismiss the charged
[against you. but in the future they
want you to report any such Informs
I tlon as thst not only of the commls
( sion of crime, but Information creating
the suspicion that erf me has been
committed, either day or night, to t'.e
Chief or Acting Chief of Police."
This decision was reached after the
board had conducted a hearing of three
hours, taking the testimony of Detec?
tive Sergeants Wiley and Kellsm. th?
three station captains: Captain pollock
and Detective Captain McMahon. The
charge of neglect of duty by the Cap?
tain of Detectives grew out of the dis?
covery of the murdered Merriman baby
last week and were preferred by Acting
chief Pollock to Ma>or Ainslie on Sat?
The first of the charges, neglect of
duty, was based on section If of the
i msnual. which directs that superior
, officers are to be notified of informa
I tlon concerning m irder or any high
j crime. The second charge was that
'of conduct prejudicial to the good or
; der and discipline of the force, which
j was merely a collary of the first al
i legation. In its opinion, the board
j In a way sustains Captain Poilock. but
I relieves McMahon of the suspicion of
; intentional breach of the code.
The charges against Mounted Officer
I Krug were dismissed after several wit
j nesses had been examined,
j The cases of the three officers who
! have been on the sick list long enough
j to incur the danger of retirement on
