Widow of Chesterfield Man
Granted Writ of Error in
Charles Romaine may yet be called ?
upon to pay damages for the death I
of W. Plummer Hicks, of Chesterfield
County, who. it is charged, was killed
by Komaine's automobile on the Rich?
mond Pettisburg Turnpike. Mrs. Re
; becca T. Hicks, the widow, sued hi
; the Circuit Court of Chesterfield Coun?
ty, and was given J?.boo damages by
i the jury, subject to a demurrer, which
. was sustained by the trial court. From
this derision the Supreme Court of Ap?
peals yesterday granted Mrs. Hicks
a writ of error, and she may later re?
Hicks worked m Petersburg and
lived at Swift Creek, two miles north.
He was returning home on the night
of June 4. ISIS, and his lifeless body
was found by the roadside, his face
being horribly mangled. It was tes?
tified that an automobile going north,
apparently <-ot.fairing ? man and some
Ctrl*, was traveling about that time
at a rapid rate, with no lights sa\e
side candle lights, and no horn sound?
ing. A. Jeffs, the principal witness
said he had to get out of the way
iiun kly to prevent being run over Just
before he found Hickss body.
Another w itness, a girl, testified that
Hlcl'.s wa* intoxicated, and that she.
with her escort, aaw him stumble and
fall on the road. The theory was that
Romaine ran his machine over the
I-rostrate man Later Romaine came
..long the road in his automobile,
which was taken to be the same. He
told Jeffs Oaal he had run over no one
at the point where the body was found,
but that he had struck something at
the top of the hill, to which Jeff re?
plied that this could not be so, since
he himself was at the top of the hill
and did not remember being run over.
The demurrer was based on the
claim that the plaintiff had not estab?
lished aa a fact that Romaine cause?,
the death nor that his automobile war
the same that had previously been seer,
traveling without safeguards, for w her.
he was identified he had lights burn?
ing. This view was sustained by the
I O-I! t
Jeffs said that I,e had started to
w.. IV to Petersburg to have his watch

will steal sou." adding. "Like a mar.

40 Per Cent J Ii.^licr Rate.
I Explaining one of the rtUMI wh> I
Richmond lias not bocn able lo ;<c?:om
l liili some of the in-;. public iann.ee? ?
inente projected as rapnlly as in other >
cities. Mayor QeortTS ftl?ttt pointed
out yesterday thai the citv tax rate of
$1.40 has i.ot been Increased la abojt
(arty years, and Is lower than In am
ef"1 of its size and conditions of which
l|e has been able to lear.i. While not
ad\< eating any Increase, the Mayo:
points out the differences between
Kn hiiiond and Palla? Texas, both with
approximately the same population,
and with very nearly the BaaM taxable
valuations Dallas, however, has been
making very rapid strides in public im?
provements in the past few ye.tis.
Conditions in Dallas.
RelcttiiiK to remarks lie had made
in a recent public address, the Mayor
"Now here's what I was talking
about the other day In trying to show
how people in other cities get some
things that we don't get and how they
^et some things that we do get bet?
ter than we gat them. Mere's the
municipal liandbok of the City of
Dallas, Texas, a very progreslvc city
of about the size of Richmond. 1 re- |
ceived it Saturday from Mayor Holland, ;
and It is Just from the printer. It is
a veritable mine of information about ;
the municipal government, its depart?
ments, etc., and 1 rather think it would
be a good thing for Richtnond to have
Hut here's what I'm coming to. On
pace 14, under the head 'Tax State?
ments," occurs this sentence: 'The tax
rate for tho year I'.'l'.'. for all purposes,
is $1 ?2 on each $100' Stick a pin there .
for a moment. Their rute is $2.!?2 J
against our $1.40.
Hate Increased Forty-Two Centn. |
"Rut read on here. "All of the tux j
rate in excess of $1.50 was voted by ,
the property taxpaying voters at va- I
rious elections." In other words, they
started with a flat rate of 10 cents on '
the $100 in excess of ours, and added
at various times special taxes amount?
ing to 42 cents on the $100. Look at
this. "At the election held in April.
1 aij, 17 cents on the $100 was voted.
10 cents being a special garbage re?
moval tax and 7 cents a special school i
tax.' What do you think of that?a
special tax for garbage removal and a i
special tax for schools" Rut read
this boast: "The city pays one-third of
the front-footage cost of street pav- |
ing. In most other cities in the Enited j
States street patriae improvements are
made at the cost of the abutting prop- j
erty, and are not paid out of the gen
oral revenues of the city.'
"Here's Dallas telling its citizens
that It gives them something extra
by contributing one-third of the cost
of street improvements, whereas Rich- i
mond. with a tax rate nearly 40 per
cent lower, pay? the whole cost out of
Its general fund, and makes no charge
at all against the abutting property.
>peeial Street Tax.
"Look here: 'The permanent street
fund Is derived from a special 20 cent
tax. and exceeds $200.000 per year."
And here: 'The library board, under
the city charter, lias an independent
income derived from the special library
tax. which amounts to approximately j
$13.000 per year." The assessment In |
Dallas is approximately the same as
la Richmond, und if we taxed our- '
selves as they do there, our budget
funds last year, instead of being a lit?
tle upwards of $3.300.000. out of which
we did everything except pave side?
walks and alleys, would have been ,
more than $4.5i?o.oftO. You see, if are
had put this extra $1,200.000 in our
treasury we would he having some

Xcw Medical College Board
Must Decide What Is to Bo
Done With Virginia.
MAY USE IT AS DORMITORY
Question of Converting It Into
Strictly Colored Hospital
Unless, the absence ?,'( certain mem?
bers requires a change of date, the
newly appointed board of the Medloal
College of Virginia will meet jn Mon?
day. February 10, to formulate the
first actual working plans for the re?
organization and -consolidation of the
University college of Medicine and the
?Medical College of Virginia. J. 11
MeCaulcy, secretary uf the board, has
communicated with all the members
to ascertain whether or not Monday
will be a convenient meeting date, ant?
affirmative answers have been received
from the majority.
Of the vast amount of constructive
work awaiting attention from the HI
board, perhaps one ?* the tirst to re?
ceive care will be the disposition uf
the Virginia and Memorial Hospitals,
both now the property of the MedUeai
College of Virginia. That the two in?
stitutions will be combined. t\p? V.'r
ginla being closed, and Its patients
moved over to the Memorial, Is n
foregone conclusion, but the board)
must decide upon the date for the
amalgamation and the conditions.
There is a possibility that the Vir?
ginia may be closed at once, but It
seems probable that Hi-: union will
not be effected until June L
May i.et Noted Experts.
Cpon convening Monday, the board
will immediately elect a chairman and
a secretary, the chairman appointing
various committees to take charge of
the innumerable details of consolida?
tion. The choice of the new faculty
will only be made after mature con?
sideration and upon the recommenda?
tion of a committee which will thor?
oughly review the qualifications of
every applicant. There is talk of bring?
ing from other medical colleges sev?
eral men of national reputation.'
In regard to the disposition of the
Virginia Hospital after it is closed, it
is utiderstood that at least three alter?
natives w ill be presented to the board.
First, the possibility of selling It to
some doctor, to be used as a private
hospital; second, converting it into a i
dormitory for students of the college,
and, third, making It Into a hospital
distinctively for colored patients. '
There Is no indication of what plan
the board will adopt.
The executive committee of the Cnl
vanity College of Medicine board met j
last night to prepare a report of the
Virginia Hospital's financial record for
presentation to the board Monday for *
consideration. The talk of closing the
Virginia has had the effect of fright- j
ening patients away, and although the ,
hospital can accommodate almost 100
patients, only about forty beds are
now occupied. The Memorial Hospital,
which Is comparatively new. has a
250-bed capacity, and only about nine- j
ty patients at present.

PLAN TO REBUILD
RETREAT FOR SICK
Board Is Now Considering the
Idea of Erecting Large Mod?
With a view of replacing the pres?
ent small bulldmtr with an extensive
hospital open to Um general practition?
ers of the city, tin hoard of the Re?
treat for the Sick has appointed com?
mittees and asked advice from compe?
tent authority in regard to the pos?
sibilities of such a move. At the pres?
ent time nothing of a d* finite nature
has been accomplished, but the re?
building idea has germinated into a
full-grown sclo-mc for enlargement,
and something practhable will prob?
ably be. evolved within a few weeks.
I'nder the articles of consolidation
between the Ml III Ml c.dlcgo of Vir?
ginia and the University College of
Medicine, the Virginia Hospital will
be closed and its patients transferred
to the Memorial Hospital. While th<
Memorial will in SI afford beds for pa?

of Richmond, uneonnected with the
medical college, will be left without
hospital facilities of a modern char?
It Is the wish of the Retreat for the
Sl< k board that this hospital, at present
laigely supported by voluntarv con?
tributions, may be converted Into a
general hospital and become in a meas?
ure self-supporting. It is believed
that there will be ample demand for
such an institution, and that no trou?
ble will be found In filling the beds
of the enlarged hospital
The old plant of the Retreat for the

to supply such a need. For this rea?

scale und In a thoroughly modern
fashion It is understood that the same
site will be used in case the- hospital
is rebuilt. The majority of the board
is said to be favorably disposed to
ward the rebuilding proposition, and
If the question of finances ?an be J

The old theology taught the divinity
of one man thru whom some men
would be saved The new theology
teaches the divinity of all men thru
which all shall be saved. While it
teaches that evil consequences follow
in the wake of evil deeds. It regarda
three consequences as remedial In their
purpose and dares to believe that the
love and power of Oed will ultimatelv
triumph, that "if goodnesa fall to
draw, the weariness of the evil way
will turn all men back to <Jod."?Uni?
