NORFOLK TANKS INCREASED.
Council Determined to Moko'Up a Deficit
Norfolk, July 8.?The .councils of this
city seem determined to collect revenue
from every soutcf i n sight. Some time
since the clv?rge for litpaoi licenso was
cut down, und to make up the deficit par?
tially caused by this action many indus?
tries, previously assessed .but nominally,
were made to pay higher taxes. The
newspapers of the city were compelled to
pay\n.license tax to do business. Rail?
way companies were taxed $200 per year
for the privilege of doing btisiuoss here,
and the common council has now adopted
the ordinance drawn by Councilman Da?
vis, a prominent attorney, '.imposing ou
railroad, canal, steamboat, steamship,
steam ferries and sleeping car companies
a tax of $200 per year.
The people affected say that the tax Is
unreasonable,ami It Is probable that they
will light it. The: claim that if every
city through which they pass took similar
action they would have to go out of bus?
iness The newspapers some time since
secured Injunctions against the collection
of the license tax from them, claiming
A VALUABLE PRESCRIPTION.

THE FORD DIVORCE CASE.
Sam Small's Daughter Makes Sen?
Richmond, Va., July 8.?The suit of
Stewart JI. Ford, the son of tho wel'
known hotel man here, for an absolute
divorce from hi? wife, Mrs. Loretta Small
Ford, promises to be one of the most sen?
sational ever known here. The defend?
ant, who is a daughter of Rev. Samuel
W. Small, has figured in a divorce case
before. She was divorced from her first
husband shortly after their marriage.
To day M-s. Ford, through her father,
fded a cross-bill and au answer to the
memoranda filed by her husband In the
chaucery court a week ago. Th? answer
filed by the wife to day Is one of the most
scathing arraignments of the plaintiit
probably ever entered iu a similar case in
The pretty defendant says she was mar?
ried to Stewart Ford Iu St. Paul's
Church, Richmond,on September 9, 1895,
after a short acquaintance. She had no
friends who "might have given her warn?
ing knowledge of said Ford's unsavory
reputation." His bearing was that of a
gentleman and ho made ardent love to
the oratrix, whose doubts were set aside
by his persistent protestations of affec?
tion and solemn assurances that he was
c** high st.nr.ding In Richmond aud was
possessed of au Income of "$10,000 a year
and that she should live in luxury and
ease. Deeming hin? to be a Virginian,
and ?o having the high opinion of him
that too Southern woman has of the gen?
uine Virginian, she believed his words to
be truth, instead of falsehood, and in an
evil hour consented to wear his wedding
ring and name. Since that time, she
alleges, her existence has been tortured
by "the cowardly and i nmanly persecu
lions of her husband." His conduct, she
says, whs such as to shut the doors of tho
homes of those persons iu Richmond with
whom sho would otherwise have associ?
ated. She was deprived of all contact
with.others than her husband and his
kindred, "whose ceaseless contentions
and savage hatred for each other rendered
her.lot the harder to endure."
Mrs. Ford proceeds to make specifically
serious charges against her husband, as?
sailing his character. Sho enumerates
diamond riugs, horse and carriage and
other perscnal property which she claims
Ford took and 'sold without accounting
to her therefor."
In February, 1897, Mrs. Ford alleges
that he knocked her down aud while she
was on tho lloor poun'led her with his
fiqts and kicked her with his fejt. until
her nody was covered with pitiful discol
orations and her clothing torn to shreds;
so that she needed the services of a nurse
for some time thereafter. Early in May,
1897, another brutal assault was made,
she says, but blooil from a hemorrhage
frightened him,so he desisted. She alleges
that her husband threatened that if she
left him he would, through his attorney,
fix up against her testimony of disrepu?
table woman and so smirch her character
that the ladies of Richmond would draw
aside their skirts while passing her. The
defendant asks for an absolute divorce
with the right to resume her maiden
name. Alimony is also asked for.
