RicuMOM). Va.. March 18. A mlld-eed child
of scarcely 0 years stood in the Doliee Court to
day charted with robbery. He was the sse
ond boy under 10 years of aKe'arrCBted tor this
crime within a week. Tho other was sent to
the State Reformatory. The boy to-4ay wag
Norvell Leo Hickok.'son of a well-known elti
zen. He was brounht before tlie court last
fall by his father, who told a storylof his Brief
over this chlld.Iwitli whom he said he'.had ex
hausted eisry possible humane method that
loie could suEirest. The boy, he declared,
rras incorrlclble and he asked the Court to tako
charee of htm to save him from crime and dis
place. When the Etatemant was made it created a
sensation and Capt. Carlton McCarthy, a
prominent citizen, mado an eloquent speech.
In which he declared that kind treatment
would set the child to rlshts. lie condemned
the father In stronc terms nnd pleaded not to
put a stlcma on the child's name by branding
him a criminal. I'noii his advice and that of
the Commonwealth's Attornoy tho child was
roturned to hie parents. His father was Rr-eeant-Maior
lu the First Vlrslnln IlcRlment
and widely known. Tiibllc sentiment so mor
tified him that ho left the city and settled else
where. ...
The child has eono from bad to worse. In

that he became morn uncontrollable and set
fire to three houses that day. To-day he was

The boy's mother rehearsed his many wronB
dolncs and leireed the Court to take charce of
him. She said ho was smart beyond hl sears
and so cunnltiB in plannlnc that It was Impos
sible to catch him The boy was continually

Aj.'cial ratIt '(linffA to Tiir. Bus',
London, March IH.-lf Mr. Joseph II. Choato
should express himself Indlscreotlr or cien
unpntrlotlcally about affairs In his country to
Englishmen ho will be In no wlso blame
wortns'. He nrilied In London more than a
fortnight neo ns the Ambassador of a creat
and prosperous renubllo and he Is still wander
ing about the streets of the metropolis seeking
a habitation wheroln to establish himself as
befits his position, Instead of lodcing as nn or
dlunry guest In a public hotel. As soon as Mr.
Choato arrived the Lord Chamberlain sent him
tho customary engraved Imitation to lslt tho
Oueen at Windsor for tho purpose of present
ing his credentials and stating that the royal
carriage would call at a certain hour for him
at "the Embassy huuee." It was necessary for
Ambassador Choate to write to tho Lord Cham
berlain explaining that tho United States pos
sessed no rcsldcnco for Its representative in
London and would her Majesty kindly send tho
roial carriage to such nnd such hotel? Tho
awkwardness of this was smoothed ovor at
'.lie islt, which once accomplished Mr, Choate
hastened back to London and resumed his
house hunting.
The majority of callers at the dingy oftlces in
Victoria street, which are ambitiously termed
the American Embasss-. base been real estate
agents, nnxlous to conduct the new Ambassa
dor to this or that furnished house, here or
there. In the Wast End. which Lord or Lady
So-and-So will be glad to sublet to his Excel
lency nt exorbitant figures. It Is a fuct that It
Is extremely dlfllcult to find a suitable fur
nished establishment such n the American
Ambassador would wish to occupy available nt
this season of the year, and this is so well un
derstood that the wealthy owners of fine man
sions who do not Intend to occupy them dur
ing the'teason. whkh opens alx weeks hence,
demand extortionate pilces. London is in
truth iioorly supplied with houses for both ex
tremes of society. The poor Quarters are
overcrowded nnd few mansions for the tlch are
mailable, but the middle classes find plenty
of nccommoila'.lon nt fairly rensonnble rents
Ambassador Chonte's dilemma Is not only a
great personal inconvenience, but has reached
the proportions of a national humiliation nnd
scandal. Most Englishmen are too polite to
openly ridicule a creat country which fails to
irovlde quarters for its representatives abroad,
but they do smile gently if it is suggested that
it Is "American simplicity" and not American
niggardliness which accounts for the indigni
ties now sufTored by Ambassador Choate and
In a lesser degree by nil his predecessors.
The only reasonable explanation which gains
the ear of English or European peoples in re
gard to tha Americans' peculiarities in the
treatment ot their diplomatic representatives
is that which soma charltablo person uc
cested. that the Americans are either renllv
Ignorant of the rules of ths game of diplomacy
or imagine that they can play the game In de
fiance of the ordinary rules. This excuso is
most frequently heard in explaining tlie utter
ly inadequate salaries paid to the American
diplomatic service.

Chnrcrs Hade Concerning Two mils In the
House of Commons During the xyek.
.Sixrm! Cubit Dnptlc to Tlta Sen-,
London, March 18. There Is an uneasy feel
ing about the House of Commons this week.
It is seriously charged that a considerable
body of members were bribed for their votes on
bills affecting vested laterests. Two such bills
were tefore the Houso. The first was a rail,
wav bill asking 1'arllament to allow the Ln-don-Chatham-Dover
Company to amalgamate
with the Southeastern. Iioth services have
hltheito bean wretched and It is feared thnt
with a monopoly they will become oven worso.
Yet the bill was carried by a great majority.
Noxt day Commoner lteckitts Introduced his
petroleum bill, raising the flash point from
".'J to 100. There has been s. bitter campaign
ncalnst the low Hash lor more than a year.
The agitating papers have bean filled with
agonizing accounts of fatal lamp accidents.
All tha chief papers of the country, except the
Trnie.s and Standard, which advised waiting for
tha Government's own bill, havo supported
the change to 100.. yet tha bill was defeated by
a vote of '.'4 to lot. It Is said that there has
been energetic lobbying In behalf ot tho Rus
sian. American and Scotch oil Interests.
Dvrlng the debato Timothy M. Heaiy said;
"I received this morning a 'etter from the
raris house of the Rothtchllds. I don't think
I ever had a letter from'a Rothschild before. It
openel It with fear and trembling. I thought
perhaps ) had overdrawn my account, but. no.
It wns nii'lntlmatlon that Jtotlischlldscould. if
this bill passed, supply safe oil as cheap as tho
dangerous oil of the l'.ockefellars. If this la be
novolence, it Is oleaginous benevolence," Mr.
Healy accordingly voted against tho bill.
That a charge oflcorruption has been made
Is a matter of fact. Two or three members,
whoso financial records suggest. that It would
not bo dlfllcult to, Influence thair votes, are
English Tories. .If proof Is obtained the Houso
as a irhola will Insist that tho matter be
threshed openly If the charges are brought
home, it will be the first scandal of the kind In
Parliament and the guilty members will cer
tainly be expelled.

ported to have received Information lcaTlng
llttlo doubt that tho I'opo has decided to ralso
Archbishops Corrlgan and Iieland totheenr
dlnnlate. nnd to accord similar honor to an
other Urltlsh prelate. It is not likely that the
promotion will bn announcod In tho forthcom
ing consistory, because tho programme of that
function was settled soveral months ago.
Nevertheless. If It Is permissible to apprnlso
such matters by the ordinary mundann stand
ard the chances are small for either Archbishop
Ireland or Archbishop Corrlgnn to receive tho
red hat from Leo XIII Tho Dope can scarcely
live until the next consistory, and It Is almost
Impossible that ho will bo In this world when
tho summer consistory should bo held.
During the dnj'sof suspenso preceding and
succeeding tho recent operation on the l'op,
everything wns got ready nt the Vatican for
tho conclave whereat his successor would be
olected. Slgnor Ferrl, tho horcdltary official
upholsterer, roeolvod orders to do everything
necessary to put tho Slstlne Chapel lu ordor for
the conclave. Ho thereupon bought tho ma
terial required for the erection of sixty thrones
In the chapel, llfty-flio bearing tho arms of
Leo XIII. aud five bearing thenrms of Plus IX..
the latter for the uso of thoso surviving Car

Cardinal (nnierlengo (Treasurer! set aside
200.000 lire for tho estimated cost of the
conclave, and this sum wus subsequent
ly Increased to -I00.O00 Another nnd not
less significant Indication of whnt was
expected In the Innermost circles of tho
Vatican Is afforded by tho fact that Gro

threo white robes In thico different slr.es
for tho future Pontiff Meanwhile there are
the almost dnlly meetings of the Cardinals,
which tho prospect of an early conclave will

The first duty that confronted tlie authorities
yesterday moinlng was the search for tho dead
among the ruins of tho hotvl. No one knew
how mnny charred bodies thorn might be W
there, and scores of stricken friends nnd rela- W
tlves vveru urging that the work begin atonco. M
This was really impossible for a time, as the M
heat and smoko from tho smouldorlnjr 9

dabble, around Its edges. Three Urn engines M
wero kept busy nil day long throwing 1

three sides tho streets were cliokod with tho jf

every onn who jumped fiom tho burning hotel jf
Is supposed to liavo been picked up and car- H

Great earo had to betaken In handling ths
workmen to prevent them being hurt. When
