To forestall the reduction of the num?
ber of licenses pawnbiokers appear?
ing before the ( oum il Committee on
Ordinaneee lust night conceded prac?
tically every other requirement de?
manded by the I'oiue Department
Without any request on their part,
however, the c om in it tee turt her amend
cd the pending ordinance to place on
the city instead of on the pawnbrokers
certain expenses connected with mmt ra
tlon of the new licenses.
The commit te.- w He i ailed in special
session to consider an ordinance diu? h
by the City Attorney at the request of
the Hoard of Police Commissioners,
and urgently recommended Cot adop?
tion by the Police Department Sa?
lient features of the new ordinance
were a reduction Oi the number of li?
censed pawnbrokers to six a require?
ment that before the Judge of the
Hustings Court grants a license the
applicant must have a certificate, frc
the Police Hoard showing that he is the
proper person to noodliol such a busi
lies?, and his local ion a proper one.
that the pawnbroker must make a daily
report to the police of ar: u les taken in .
that he must maintain a push button
to call l he police in case of emergency,
and finally that violation of conditions
of the ordinance meant revocation of
the license, and that the person whose
license was revoked would not be eli?
gible to condm t a pawnshop in Rich?
mond for Ove year*.
Police Want Number Restricted.
Chief of PoikOg Werner appeared in
strong advocacy of the ordinale.. ,,s
prepared by the Polios r^cportahonl
He has seen the number of pawnshops
grow fiom eight to twelve with no city
ordinance limiting their number, and
practically no regulation save what is
contained in State enactments. Cap?
tain of Detectives T. i MeMskM ad?
vocated the rod notion m Mint bar, tell?
ing of the work Of tue poiiOS m keeping
track o! such places to recover stolen
goods Mr Thalhimer. icpreserit
nig the Retail Merchants Association,
strongly advocated adoption of thy
ordinance, giving specific Iwstinc iaj
where tnerchan's have been robtied of
large quantities of goods, which have
later been found in various pa* n
shops In one instance where ?. rv
gro pawned a large numbt ' of new
suitcases he said, it was obvious to any
one that he could not have come by
them honesMy. yet the pawnbroker,
without question, advanced money on
thern. He has found goods token
from his own store on approval m
pawnshops Captain Mi Mahon -aid
that while the pawnbrokers were in the
irsutn friendly to the police yet they
had not given as much assistance as
was possible in locating thieves or
tracing stolen goods.
Pawnbrokers favor Regulation.
For the opposition. Archie Steiner
approved of the daily report syst? SJ
Mr. (lelman saw no objection auve to
the limit of the number: Mr. Jacobs
said that his father bad suggested the
push-button plan as much as ten years
ago. and recommended that the po?
lice have printed a daily description of
stolen goods so that pawnbrokers
might be on their guard, and Mr
Hirschberg thought the push button
idea a good one. but saw no reason
why the cost of its installation should
full on the pawnbroker.
H. M. Smith. Jr. represent ing sev?
eral of the pawnbrokers, approved of
general rest ru t ions, but objected to
limiting the number. He thought
that tf the restrictions were rigidly en?
forced Objet ti .nable plates would soon
be eradicated by due process .if law.
without the drastic action of putting
half of the pawnbrokers out of busi?
ness at once, with no evidence to show
that ihe s;x selected were conducting
their business on any higher plane than
the six rejected The business, he
frankly considered a sort off n-cessary
evil, piree wherever pawnbrokers have
been refused a license the polios have
had endlose trouble with ' fences." or
illegitimate places for the receipt and
sale of stolen goods. While there is
no city ordinance limiting :he num?
ber at present, there are but twelve
pawnbrokers in the fit-.- and he did
not think that, number excessive.
On motion of Mr. Disney the ordi?
nance was amended t,, make the total
number twelve instead off ,lx thus pro?
viding a chance for all those at pres?
ent engaged in ? r?e business The
: amendment pro rides that if any pre*
I ent license holder violates any of the
I provisions of the ordinam e as to mak?
ing reports or fails to aid the police
; in recovering stolen goods his license
is to be- revoked and no new license
issued in lieu thereof nn'il the num?

tion, a depositor in the Lovmgston

Justice and Love.
I nifartanism stand* for unitv ijetween
justice and love in God. To say that
God's love would save all men, but that
Hi- justice wM not permit if, but will
punish some forever, is to say that His
justice is at permanent ?-ar with His love.
If God is one and supreme, then there
must be a universal harmony at last, all
hell?, and whatsoever in rhir? world or any
other is hateful or hostile to Him must
pass away, and only heavens of love, of
right, ot truth, of whatsoever is in har?
mony with His will, can permanently
remain.?I nitarian Publicity Committee.
