D. G. Reid Not in Control. It has been reported that Daniel G. eld would be in control of the new stitutlon and that he controls both he Union and Second National banks. th of these statements are niislead- g, as Mr, Reid does not control elKv f bank, although the Interests in con rol of these . institutions., are .very riendly to Mr. Reid, recognizing his hrewd business ability and bis tai nt for the management of large fin- kflcial Inve-wfaients. The Dickinson trust Compapny does not figure in He , new enterprise in any way as here has been no effort to purchaec ta stock and the proposed new con- ern will be in the field simply as a ompetitor for business. - ' ' w To" Occupy New Building. ' The new trust company in all pro ability, will be quartered in the new building that is to be erected by the Second National bank on the site of he present structure, simply as a enant. In such case the company kill not be able to begin business for everal months, as the work on the Erection of the new building will not legln before spring and cannot be ompleted before fall. It Is not con sidered probable that business will be to accept the resignation. The mat ter was deferred to a future meeting. That the work of Rev. Randolph has been most successful and satisfactory is shown by the last report of the con gregation covering the. five years of his pastorate. Assuming charge of the work July Marked by the greatest enthusiasm yet shown, the young men's committee helping to raise funds for the Y. M. C.

It was decided, at the meeting to give a musical in the Coliseum during the first week of the new year. A committee to have charge of this af fair was appointed as follows: Ruth erford Jones, chairman; Howard Dill, Ray Shiveley, Oliver Nusbaum and George Bartel.

REUBEN MYRICK. TEACHERS COMING SOON PROBABLY THIS MONTH Supt. Mott Learns That English In structors Will Reach Indianapolis the Middle of December Means Here About . Same Time. Last evening's Item again contained an article in regard to the circulation of the Richmond dailies, and. characteristically, it mis-represented them even to its own, we feel. In last night's Item the Palladium was cred ited with only 1,581 city circulation as compared to the Item's 3,421 city circulation for Saturday night. The Palladium's sworn city circulation for Saturday was 2,195 We notice that the Item did not publish its city circu lation statement as sworn, and believa it will rectify this little over-sight if it wants to stand fairly with its adver tisers. A detailed statement of the Palladium by routes is herewith printed : CIRCULATION BY ROUTES. Route No. 1 M. C.

In the Sunday issue of the Palladium we offered to bear our share of. the expense of an Investigation into the circulations of the Richmond newspapers. We put no hedge about our. proposition, such as "all papers must be investigated." This is a favorite method of the Item's to escape having its circulation investigated. It al ways stipulates that it is willing to go in for a circulation investigation provided the Palladium and the Sun-Telegram will also go into it. Now, as is well known, the Sun-Telegram never even answers such a proposition either because it has not the circulation it claims or because it refuses to be drawn into a circulation fight. In this present case, the Item again tries to tide behind its old fence, namely, getting the Sun-Telegram to also permit a circulation investigation, in order "that it may escape being "shown up." " The Item's Pretense. The Item makes a pretense of being square and above board by proposing the following plan: "Regardless of whether thevPalIadiuni Syndicate will permit an honest Investigation of its city circulation. The Item will permi Palladium Syndicate will permit an ty circulation by a committee representing the local advert'sers, together with one representative of the Palladium. If an investi gation of The Item's city circulation, net, paid circulation by this committee does not prove that the average net, paid circulation of The Item as delivered by carrier boys from this office, has not been over 3,400 a day since September 1, 1906, and over 3,200 a day since April 1, 1906, The Item Newsppa per Company will give to all local advertisers their December advertising free, and will in addition bind itself to pay to the Y. M. C. A. building fund the sum of $1,000. This investigation may begin at any time and without notice to this company. The committee jaiay be of any size, provided it is composed of business men and advertisers in good standing." Now the Item knows very well t'aat the merchants and other advertisers of Richmond have no time to in vestigate the circulation of local newspapers, and especially so, at this time of the year, therefore, it is perfectly safe in making what is apparent!; 1-beral an offer. But the fairest thing to do, namely to pay the expense of hiring some responsible circulation auditor, such as can be furnished by Printers Ink and others, the Item refuses to do, putting the onus of the proof on the -merchants and other responsible advertisers. I Proposition of the Palladium. ' Now then in order that the merchants of Richmond may be firmly convinced that the Palladium Is honest in desiring to have its circulation investigated and proven beyond a doubt, to be what we claim and swear it is, we submit the following proposition: The Palladium Printing Co. will at once take steps to procure the services of a responsible circulation au ditor fromisorne such Tesponsible coacern as Printers" Ink, to Investigate the circulation of the Palladium at its expense, irrespective of whether or net any other Richmond newspaper consents to a similar investigation. The result of this investigation will be printed on the first page of the Palladium at the conclusion of the work of in vestigating. The circulation auditor who will be retained to do the work must be acceptable to representative merchants of this city. , If the Item or the Sun-Telegrari now care to show any spirit of honesty and fairness to Richmond's mer chants, let them likewise stand for a circulation investigation by an experienced and trustworthy circulation auditor. , " Making a total for church .

SHOR T SESSION CF CONGRESS OPENED; USUAL CEREMONIES Capitol Takes on An Appear ance of Activity Such as It Had Not Presented Since Last June. JAPANESE SITUATION WAS TOPIC FOR DISCUSSION Little Expected to Be Accom plished Except Passing the Appropriation Bills Much to Talk About. Publishers' Tress "Washing. -e. a. The fact that both houses of congress were to meet for the session had the effect of giv- ing the capitol an appearance of activ ity such as it has not presented sinc adjournment last June. The first day of a session never develops much of Interest to those used to attending the sessions of congress, but no other day of a session seems to possess greater charm for the average citizen. Mon day was no exception to the rule, as the corridors .were not without vis itors even before senators and mem bers began to arrive, and there was a marked increase as the day advanced. Most of the attendants were from out of the city, and there was the usual Importunity of members for tickets. These were, as usual,, freely givea, and for the time at least congressmen and constituents were happy. Both visitors and members found the great building in excellent condi tio to receive them. Vast as it is the structure has been thoroughly reno Tated, inside and out, and it looked as clean and inviting as many a newer building. All of the committee rooms received a thorough overhauling, tho pictures rejuvenated and the two chambers completely cleaned. , Senators and members of the house began to arrive early in the day, anl there were many cordial greetings in the corridors and on the floors. The experiences of the late campaign wejo a fruitful source of remark, but al though many of the me 'ngs were be tween Republicans and Democrats there was no evidence of any but the best feeling. It was the generally ex pressed opinion that the short sesslot will witness little legislation beyond the appropriation bills. "But if any one thin'-s we will not find something to talk about he has another guess." said one of them, and there was gen eral acquiescence. Speaker Cannon and many promi nent members of the house arrived at the capitol long before the opening of the house and engaged in Informal discussion of probable issues which will occupy their attention. Mr. Hep burn of Iowa, chairman of the Inter state and foreign committee, and Mr. Payne of New York, chairman of tho ways and means committee; Mr. Taw ney of Minnesota, chairman of the ap propriation committee, and General Grosvenor of Ohio, chairman of the merchant marine and fisheries, were among the early arrivals. The Japanese situation was discuss ed quite generally by the members, and the ooinion was freely expressed (Continued to Pago Eight.) THE END CAME SUDDENLY MRS. W. E. WILSON DEAD More Effective Work.
