Boykln, chairman of the Slate Belgian Relief Commission. believes that it will not be long now before a sufficient cargo will be provided to warrant the use of a special ship to convey Virginia's charity to the .stricken Belgians. The effort to have the Universities of Virginia and Wash ington and Dee play here on December 5 In behalf of the relief fund was dis continued yesterday, when Information was received from President l?dwln A. Alderman, of the university, that, in view of the approaching examinations. | tli? fact that the tei'~- i:as been dis banded ami the fact that Quarter Buck Hobble Gooch Is studying hard for his entrance examination as a Rhodes scholar to Oxford, it would be inad visable to play. The Generals, through .President Smith, agreed to' play, and Ihero was much hope that a game might be arranged. liOCAL CAMPAIGN ISXDKU WITH COXCKIIT OX Sl'XHAV Tho campaign in Richmond for the relief fund was practically ended with tho sacred concert on Sunday, and ihero will be no further solicitation. '.Much more is accessary, however, if a Virginia ship is to be supplied with a full cargo, and Colonel Boykln will continue to receive contributions until a sufficient amount has been raised. The chairman of the State commission wrote yesterday to all the district chairmen asking them for information as to the progress of their separate campaigns, so that lie may know in advance what to expect, and so be pre pared to arrange for a Virginia. ship. Richmond people have contributed ap proximately $10,000. a goodly sum. "thinks Colonel Boykln, when It Is con sidered how many and how varied have been the calls on local charity.

This message was sent to-day by 1 he American Commission for Relief in Belgium to more titan 1.000 committees lit the United States. The commission has perfected country-wide shioplng arrangements, and it is expected that | vast quantities of food and clothing at j various city ami State headquarters in i a .lay or two will begin to move to] every important port in the United I Slates. I For convenience in handling and! shipping foodstuffs, the commission has requested all local organizations to af- i filiate themselves with State commit-1 teee. Where there is no State com-! mitteo, the local relief parties are re-J quested to arrange storage depots for small lots that can be assembled in i carload lots. The commission arranges shipping free of charge from tlie sea-, board to Belgium, ami agrees to pay all- railroad freight charges in cases where the railroads themselves tire not shipping free. A system is being worked out so that express and parcel post lots may be sent free of charge | to Inland centres in each State. NEGROES OPEN FIRE ON POLICEMAN BRENNAN !

The negroes ran down Soeond Street to tlio tracks of the Seaboard Air Line Itailway, ami are thought to have none in the direc tion of Seventeenth Street. They were a considerable distance from the officer when they began shooting, and none of their shots took effect. Brennan's prompt reply un doubtedly surprised the negroes, and ?they left the vicinity with all pos sible speed. As they ran. Brennan emptied hi* revolver at them, and last night said that he thought he ntruck one of the men, as lie threw his arms in the air and dropped his pistol. He joined his companions and oscapcd, however. A general alarm was sent out to all police stations directly after the shooting, and every patrolman was ordered to arrest suspicious character:-. Hrennan was unable to secure descrip tions of any of the men. The negroes broke into the hard wure store from tiie rear. They pro ceeded to tlie front of the store, where they secured the pistols ami ammu nition from one of the windows. Then they returned to Js'ckson Waul, where they began* firing shots in the street. A report was made, to the Second Pre-' clnct Station, and Brentian was sent to stop the disturbance, it was while lie was on this assignment that he was Mhot at. Several of the pistols were found by Brennan and brought to the Second Station, where they were iden tified. The ojlieer did not follow the negroes, as he had used all 11is car tridges In shooting at them as they ran along Second Street.

Grace Hospital will be the institu tion whose superintendent or board of managers will bo summoned to show cause why a fine of not less than 510 nor more than 5100 should not be 111 tliicted for failure to report the case of William Varbrough, of New York City, who was taken to the hospital early Monday morning suffering from a fractured skull. Varbrough is the man who was struck by a Ginter Park car at the southern end of the First Street Bridge early Monday morning, and who was not identified until last night. Ho is thirty-four yearn old, and is a son of G. W. Varbrough. of Cold Harbor, lie ' is employed by U. Y\". Walker, a pro- 1 tlucc merchant, and lias been boarding with his sister, Mrs. G. L. Jenkins, L'Tlit O Street. At Grace Hospital last night it was said that although his condition was still serious, he was thought to be slightly improved, and surgeons now entertain some hope of his recovery. Ml KHI'OHT Of CASK 1'li.lOU WITH POMCK Captain of Detectives MoMahon yes terday afternoon had occasion to iti Muire for the report of the hospital on the accident, and learned that no such report had been filed. The man had been in the hospital exactly two days, and although the ordinance requires that the hospital blanks shall be filled out and delivered at headquarters im mediately after the receipt of the pa tient, the police last night asserted that the authorities at the institution, had failed to comply with the require ments of the ordinance. Detective-Sergeants Wily and Kel lani were at once assigned to the in vestigation of the case, and were or dered to ascertain the reason for tho alleged negligence and to summons the proper otlicials to court for violation of the ordinance.

Dr. Brady's Health Talks i < OF Til 10 BRKAST. I Taking1 an average 100 eases of can cor ofathe breast, one will be a woman twenty-three years of age. one each at twenty-five, twenty-seven ami twen ty-eight years, nine of the patients will be between twenty and thirty years of age, twelve will be between thirty and forty and the rest will be over forty. An injury sometimes, hut not often, seems to have some Influence upon the development of a cuncrr. Most of the histories of injury preceding cancer of the breast are more like coincidences. The outer half of the breast, that is, the half nearer the shoulder, is the | most frequent sent of cancer. The tlrsl I signs of ;i lump or thickening may ap- | pear in aiiy part of tlie breast, how- j I e V er. Heredity seems to have no important inthiuuce. In only about a fourth of all I the eases is there a history of cancer I in the family. So far as diagnosis la 'concerned, heredity, injury and the j patient's age are practically negligible j points. Delay Is Diiiigerou*. If recognized at once and operated | upon, eighty out of a hundred eases can i be completely cured. j A very important point to bear in ] mind is ?-that cancer of the breast is painless at first in most rases. In fact, it painful swelling or lump is more likely to be noncancerous. If women who accidentally discover a lump in the breast would submit immediately to medical examination, and if necessary ! tn surgery, all cases or nearly all cases | could lie promptly cured. When the operation is delayed long enough to pi'rinlt neighboring glands under the arm-pit or within the chest wall to become secondarily affected, then the operation must bo much more heroic in proportion and less likely to give j permanent relief. If in I>nntj|, Tnkc .\o (/tinner*. In ten case.* out of a hundred it is impossible for the most competent phy sleian or surgeon tu say positively whether a lump or nodule is. or is not cancer. The only safe thing to do in such a quandary Is. have the lump re moved and stop worrying about if. With the X-ray as a follow-up treat ment, operation for cancer of the breast now gives excellent results as regards recurrence. The scar itself becomes cancerous again after a year or two in only a minority of eases. <ti>cxtlouN Mini tnnnrrn. Mrs. L. I>.

REDISCOUNT RATE FOR RESERVE BANK REDUCED New Schedule Takes K fleet To-Day, and Will- Increase Volume of Uii.siiiess. RESEHVKS NOW WELL IX HANI) System Has Relieved Financial Strain to Marked Degree, Says Governor George J. Seay?Demand for Credit Had Been Overestimated. Ifeglnning to-day the Federal Re- I serve Hank of Richmond will put into ' efTcct the reduced rediscount rate of j 5 1-2 per cent for thirty-day niaturl- \ ties, and <! per cent for all other ma- ! turttios. The rates that have been in j force since the opening of the bank j have been 6 and (I 1-2 per cent, respcc- i tlvely. The reduction in the rediscount rato | for the Fifth District was authorized by tiio Federal Reserve Hoard at the ( recommendation of the bourd of direc- ; tors of the Federal Reserve Hank of Hichinond. ? It will have the effect of . encouraging the rediscounting of com- ? merclal paper by the member banks'. | Under the old 6 per cent rato redis counting was resorted to infrequently, sinco the operation carried practically no prolit to the bank applying for tliis service. UKDISCOLWTINf; DISCOVltAGBD tNTIIi HKSIOIIVIOS \V 10 It 10 PAID Tlio rediscount rato was purposely i fixed by tho Federal Reserve Hoard i I at tiio approximate discount rate at first in order to discourage a too free ? exercise of this function until tho first installment of the reserves were in 'hand and the hanks had had an op-1 | portunity to feel out the demand. Now | | that the reserve payments for tho year j I arc practically complete, the reserve ; hanks will begin rediscounting opera tions in earnest, and the reduction of the rate is a preliminary step In this direction. "The opening of the Federal reserve banks," said Governor George J. Seal*, of the local institution, yesterday, "lias relieved tho financial strain to a marked degree. The mere fact that ' the member banks know that they can ' fall back upon tho reserve bank in ;case of need has tended to ease the loan market. The demand for credit, it appears, has been a good deal over estimated." The Kederal Rescrvo Hank of Rich mond has redlsoounted to date more than $200,000 worth of commercial paper. Most of the applications for rediscount,, said ' Governor Seay, have como from the cotton-producing sec tions. Practically no rediscounting has been done for Richmond hanks. PREPARING TO I XDKHTAKH CliKAIUNfi-IIUUSH WORK WASHINGTON, December 1.?The Federal Reserve Hoard to-night gave the Federal Reserve Hank at Kansas City authority to clear checks by mem ber banks, and similar authority will he given iinmcdlatelv to the Chicago hank. This is the first step taken to ward having reserve, hnnks exercise the clearing function provided in tho new currency law. Tn its telegram to Federal Reserve Agent .Miller, at Kansas City, the hoard called attention to t lie fact that a meeting of the governors of all reserve banks is to be held here December S-10, at which clearing of checks will be considered. It is the hope of mem bers of the hoard that ultimately a large part of the clearinRH of the coun try will be done, through the reserve bank. Rediscounts by the twelve banks have not increased materially in the last few days, but there has been an increase In the amount of Federal re serve notes taken by member banks. 1 The increase in Federal reserve notes 1 may be accounted for by a decrease in clearing-house loan certificates and emergency currency announced to night by Comptroller of the Currency Williams. According to Mr. Williams, all clearing-house certificates have been paid off or called in for redemp tion. The total amount of emergency | currency issued by the Treasury De partment. Mr. Williams said, was $3S1, 530,000, and of this $127,272,000 has been 1 redeemed. The gradual disappearance of .emergency currency is presumed to be due to the fact that banks arc anxious to take out Federal reserve notes.

Mr. Blenner, it was stated, paid the $50 State tax I under protest In 1911 and l'J12. but has declined to take out the registra tion certlticuto since. The Hustings Court, despite the j claim of Mr. Blenner's counsel, held the act to be constitutional, and or dered the payment of the State llconso I tax which it provides.
