' yesterday. It will in- acted on at an
early day, and it seems now that it
?iil probably he accepted,
Many efforts have been made during
tlie last day or two to induce Captain
McDowell ta reconsider his action and
to withdraw his rcignati >n. A meet?
ing of ttie enlisted men of Iiis company
was held and a committee appointed
to see the commanding officer and ask
him to remain with the company. He
has been urged thus officially. as well
as privately, not to retire.
Hut to all appeals he has remained 1
obdurate. He replied to the commit?
tee that his business duties are ex- :
tensive and that the many affairs to
he attended to as a military com?
mander reouired much of hl.s time, so
that the two interests not Infrequently
conflict. Under th.- circumstances he
could see nothing but retirement. j
Captain McDowell reiterated his in- !
tercet in the company and the battalion
and his willingness to do anything I
in his p ?wer for their success.
The r? tiring captain was coinmls- I

had thorough experience as a soldier.
Intensely fend of the work, he was
always to lie found in the company |
room at night, taking an active Inter- |
est in all affairs. His capacity fir;
leadership Is amply shown by the fact
that bis company had at u!l times mus- I
tered more than the established num?
ber of sixty.
Captain McDowell has taken part
with his men In other affairs, espe?
cially In athletics. He is a member

Mr. Rountree Dissents From
This View?Pleasant Success?
ful Social Affair.
Beginning with a happy toast offered
by Pres Ida nt T. I*. Bryan, of the Bus?
iness Men's Club, the dinner of the
Heal Batata Exchange at the Jefferson
Hots] lust night proceeded harmo?
niously to a discussion of Kit hmond's
eomiiierei.il and particularly Its real
.state abilities and disabilities. At
It o'clock it reaches' its cUssaz in a
striking arraignment b> Eer >y E.
Brown of mortgage tax laws as admin- i
istered la this State.
The pro-ram proceeded smoothly
until 11 o'clock, arhea, in rmponsr to
a call from Toastsaaster O. H. Fan
sten for voluntary speakers from the
rankj if property holders present,
Heriry \\". Rouatree took the floor with
a slioit speech, in which he defended
the retention of the present mortgage
laws and made light of the griev?
ance presented by Mr Brown. It called
forth a spirited reply from President
Funston. of the Real Estate Exchange,
which was promptly nut by a counter
reply frjni Mr Rountree.
.1 >hn C. Easley took up arms for his
real .-state confreres, and for twenty
minutes the meeting took on tne gen?
eral character o. mi intercollegiate
debate. Shortly before midnight the
chair's invitation for additional epeak
? rs failed t.> meet with response, and
the gathering adjourned, mutually en?
lightened, with malice towards none
and charity towards all.
All Around Oood Tlase.
Roughly sketched, the foregoing is
an outline ot the big features of last j
niarht's dinner. There were many i
others. To begin. th< re was a sub?
stantial beefsteak reed, with the usual
side dishes. More than 106 real estate
men and as many more, from other
fields of Industry were seated at the
tat les arranged In the form of n large
hollow square, when T. P. Bryan
brought the gathering to Its feet with j
a toast to the l.-ng life and usefulness
of the Richmond Real Estate Ex?
President O H. Funsten. of the ex?
change, was toastmaster and opened
the program at 8:30 o'clock with a
general address of welcome and a
statement of the organization's func?
tion in the community. The exchange,
he said, among other things, fosters a
get-together spirit between its mem- j
bers. makes for unanimity of action
along the line of reforms relating to
the transfer of records, and affords Its
members protection by supplying In
; formation as to property and tenants

Attack* Mortgage I.a wa.
"Two things only are certain in life."
' said Eeroy E Brown, opening his at?
tack on the Virginia mortgage tax.
I "death and taxes. And from the way
I some of the latter are Imposed In thts
State, it is but an indifferent choice
I between the two." j
I Both from the standpoint of the
real estate dealer and that of the in
| veetor, said Mr. Brown, the present
obnoxious ad valorem tax on deeds and
j mortgages is the most glaring defect
of the State's taxing system. Com?
pared with New York, which imposes
! a tax of Iii on the 11,000. payable only
I once during the life of the mortgage.
I Virginia, he said, exacts a tax of $17.50
t for the same unit, payable annually.
I The removal of this unjust double
[ tax. he s.iid. would destroy in large
I part the Incentive toward undervalua?
tion and perjury, which is resorted to
now in an effort to evade Its burdens,
and would Increase the revenues of
the State ray providing for prepayment
at the time of filine instead of nt th.
end of the year, the present practice.
I It would Itssts the rat- of interest by

I Opposed by Mr. Reaatree.
' Mr. F.-ountree. In the free-for-all dls-'
cuaslon which followed the formal
speechmaking. declared himself as ut-(
terly opposed to the principle thus
laid down, and said frankly that be1
saw no distinction between taxing the
holder of a mortgage and levying upon
the possessor of otner kinds of prop?
erty. He hoped, he said, that the
present tax on mortgages would never
Mr. Fun.-ten admitted the possibility'
of a aUffereace of opinion on all ques?
tions, but Stoutly insisted that the
grievance at ihr real est.ite men was a
real one. "The Real Estate Exchange
of Richmond." he said, "will secure the
repeal of this tax or die in the noble'
President W H Adams, of the Board
of Aldermen, spoke a word on behalf
of the city government anil urged all
men with m?-n?-v to Invest to listen to

Judge I>. C. Richardson In the Rust- '
lugs Court yesterday, when John Akin
Branch, of $13 West Franklin Street,
pleaded guilty to a charge of driving
his automobile, faster than allowed by
law. Through his counsel, Hiram M.
Smith, he asked that the minimum fine;
of |10 be Imposed.
Branch had appealed from a fine of
$100 Imposed by Justice Crutchfleld
last August. He was arrested byj
Moretcyete Officers Samuels and Thur
man for exceeding the speed limit In
Monument Avenue and Roseneath
It was when the minimum punish?
ment was asked for that Judge Rich?
ardson declared his attitude towards
the speed law violators. He held, how?
ever, that the offense of Branch was
not a flagrant one, but In view of his
opposition to all forms of speeding.,
h?- would not consent to Imposing the
minimum punishment, but decided to;
tine him $50, or one-half the amount
imposed bv Justice Crutchfleld.
After he had left the bench. Judge
Richardson again explained that all
speeders will meet with but small con-!
sideratlon from him when convicted. !
