Heart failure is assigned as tlie causl

the following letter was the mouth
Norfolk, Va., April 14, 1906.
It has been suggested that a
Chapter of Sons of the AMERICAN

You are urgently requested to be
present lt 5:30 p. m. Tuesday April
17th, in the office of Floyd Hoghes,
Room 604 Atlantic Trust and Dieposit
Building, for the purpose of effect
ing the organization of a Chapter of
Sons of the American Revolution.
Having received their charter from
the Virginia Society, the permanent
organization was formed in Norfolk
with the following officers: Tench F.
Tilghman, president; Fredrick Ann
spaugh, secretary; Dr. L. T. Royster,
treasurer; Harry H. Trice, registrar.
The committee on by-laws and mem
bership consists of Messrs. Tilghman,
Crawford and Aunspaugh.
The total strength of the society
is about 50,000 Which will probably
be increased to 100,000 before the
opening of the Jamestown Exposi
tion next year.
The National Congress of the Sons
of the American Revolution is to
convene at the Exposition in 1907
and it will be the pleasant but ardu
ous duty of Tidewater Chapter No. 1.
to see that the delegations are pro
perly cared for and entertained. The
present headquarters of the chapter
are in the Bank of Commerce build
ing, Norfolk, where the secretary,
Frederick Aunspaugh, will give atten
tion to all communications. The
new cl'ater has started most auspic
iously and 8x)ects to have a sutstan
tial membership long before the open
-ng of the Jamestown Exposition.

lumber is piled half way up thle
masts, so that her skipper put out
with the water washing green over
his main deck, and an occasional comn

Seattle runs the story of a pass*enger

While on a trmip thlrough Canada six

a Toronto trust company for safe
keeping. She mentioned it in her

representing claimants to the estate
gathered from afar to witness the

whence i came.
Mr. Clark, in speaking of the large
deposits that were made 1-- Meu rs.

thie deposit, and there was absolutely

berry that no interest was being
This statement of Mr. Clark's was
brought. out, to make it appear that
I hiad not stated facts about the dis
penlsary in my article written in the
summer of 1903. The facts are these.
Il spea4ing of the efforts made by
the whiskey dealers to secure business
from the State dispensary, I said,
among other things, that I had been
itiformed that after the reappoint
ment of dine of the members of the
board, who had retired for several
years, because he became disgusted
with the business, that a Baltimore
liquor house had deposited $50,000
in his bank with the understanding
thnt it could remain there without in
terest until called for. I went on to
say that these and other rumors were
talked on the street. and that the'se
gentlemen knew whether they were
ture or not. It appears from Mr.
Clark's testimony that the deposit
was much larger than this blit at a
very low rate of interest and while
those who iiiformed me may have been
mistaken as to the interest part of it,
I am surethiey gave me the ipforma
tion as they received it, and they told,
me, as I repeated it 'in writing the
letter to shoiv the shrewdness of the
whiskey men and the methods they
used to get business from the dispen
sary; and as they did not care to make
this member an offer of rebates, they
would make deposits in his hank and
in this way place him, as member of
the board and chairman of the Demo
cratic party of the State, under obli
-ations to them. If this had not been
their purpose, they could have doubt
less placed their money in other banks
in Columbia at a higher rate of inter
est, which they have possibly done
since, as Mr. Clark says the deposit
has been withdrawn from the Caro
lina National bank.
I would not have not iced what Mr.
Clark had to say had I not believed
that the question was asked him to
dliscredit me and help the cause oif
the dispensary. I haven't a copy of
the article I wrote in 1 903 showing
up the dispensary, but I haven 't any
apologies to make for wr'uit ing it and
assume the responsibility of every
line of it, and if it has helped to open
upn the eves of the peop)le and to vote
out .the dlisp)ensaries that have been
closed in the State, and in the inves
tigation which has uncovered some of
the corruption, which has existed in
the management of the State and
county dispensaries for many years,
I feel that ,I have pierfornmed a duty
hat every citizen should be willing
to perform for his State and1 party.
Mr. (lark should not allow the dis
pensary to use him to save them from
sinking, as his association with the
whiskey men and1 dispensary advo
cat es cannot strengthen his influence
with thle Christian people of Colum
bia or help his church wvhich has lhon
ored1 him by electing him an elder.
