In the headquarters olllce of the State
Hoard of Education. the hoard members
sat yesterday from 1 o'clock in the day
to 11 at night, wrestling with vexed
questions involved In the problem of ?
awarding contractu for textbooks for
the elementary schools for the four
years commencing Monday.
The long session was broken with hut
one recess, which was taken for supper
at 7 o'clock, when the members wero i
apparently so exhausted that they were j
compelled to succumb to nature's de
mand for food. When they returned to 1
business the proceedings took on the
same animated and argumentative
phases that hail marked the earlier
hours of the session. At 11 o'clock at
night the board adjourned, seemingly t
deadlocked on some vital questions.
Superintendent of Public Instruction
Stearnes. ex-ofllclo chairman, presided
during the day. Every member of the
board except Governor .Stuart was
The Governor, confined to the execu
tive mansion by illness and prevented
from lending his presence by the orders
of Inexorable and relentless physicians,
refused to be cheated by health or doc
tors of his right to participate In the
Determination, persistency and ag
gressive Inqulsltiveness in dealing with
affairs of state are characteristics .
which have been ever In evidence dur- |
ing the Stuart administration. Tho j
Governor manifested a combination ot
the three In the resourceful method he
adopted to circumvent the physicians
and participate actively In the action of ,
the board on all Important matters.
The Governor Injected himself Into |
the proceedings by a process of absent
treatment to which the board submit
ted. It came about In this way;
When the hour set for the meeting,
11 o'clock In the morning, passed with
only Dr. J. I... Jarman, of Farmvllle, j
and J. Frank West, of Eouisa, material- '
izlng. It was feared that some of the
members had gone to the Capitol under
the Impression that the session was to ;
be held in the executive office.
Superintendent Stearnes and Secre- ;
tary Chesterman gathered together '
their books and papers and moved on
the Governor's olllce. There they met
other members of the hoard, but there
was not a quorum. Along about 1
o'clock in the afternoon the hegira of
educators, headed by the superintend- j
ent and the secretary, returned to Su- j
pcrinterident Stearnes's olllce. At the j
executive office the information had
been imparted by the Governor's secre- i
tary. Mi. Forward, that His Excellency I
would not be with them corporeally, !
but the secretary confidently expressed ,
his opinion that the executive would ex- i

board to the finish of the award of con
Shortly after 1 o'clock Superintendent
Stearnes rapped the body to order and
the business for the day was begun.
The usual routine was speedily disposed
of. and it was decided to appoint a
committee to communicate with the
Governor and ascertain his wishes be
fore troing Into the textbook questions.
Dr. Page and Attorney General Pollard
were accordingly named for this mis
i The board then save a hearing to;
| District Superintendent Henley, of
! James City County, who had come with
a petition asking the board to author
ize a purchase of J15.000 of bonds of
Powhatan and Jonesvllle District for
the Literary Fund. The two counties'
needed the money for certain Improve
ments and to satisfy certain debts. '
| Having already obtained one loan on
j school property from the Literary
Fund, a second could not be legally ]
secured without the action of the
State board. The board decided to
j authorize the bond purchase, but with
certain restrictions and provisions that
! reduced the amount a couple of thou
! sands.
! Then a petition presented by John C.
; Weckert, of the Typographical Union,
i was considered. The union asked the
| board to retain certain textbooks In the
: LI. P. Johnson Company list which are
! published, printed and bound in Rich
mond. It was taken under advisement.
When the board reassemTjtert at the
end of the. recess, the committee that
j had communicated with the Governor
I reported.
The report related that the Governor
was physically unable to be present at
I the meeting, but expressed the desire
I that the board proceed to business and
| dispose of all matters of business 011
which the body was "practically unani
; inous." All this was to be put iti the
j form of a resolution and adopted. Then
j came the suggestion which qualified the
! preceding one. It was "provided that
' the resolution should be presented to
| the Governor for his information and
his vote."
There were yet more "provideds."
One was to the effect that " all matters
contested by at least two members of
the board shall be submitted to the
Governor for his information and vote."
The other provided that "when two or
more members object to any proposed
action, such action shall be submitted
a shipment just to hand of 800
handsome Scarfs, all the very
"newest shapes tyid designs.

of this place, savs:' "About two years
ago, when I was eighteen years old,
I was in a bad condition from wo- |
manly troubles. 1 foil off until I
weighed not more than 8 5 lbs.
I suffered dreadful pains in my
hips, sides and abdomen for about 5
days out of every month.
I couldn't sleep at night, and the
pains were so dreadful I couldn't lie
down for the blood would seem to
rush to my head.
I felt I must have some relief, for
it seemed that the awful suffering
would surely kill me.
1 had read of what Cardui had
done for others, anil thought I would
try it.
After the use of onp bottle, the
pains had entirely stopped and I was
able to sleep.
After using four bottles I was a
well woman, I was regular, I got
back my flesh, and I now weigh 126
lbs.; and am able to do all my work
without any trouble.
1 certainly recommend Cardui to
suffering women, for 1 know it cured
My friends who saw me when I
weighed So pounds and would see
me now, would know what Cardui
had done for me."

Mayor ami Chairman Starko Arc
Working in Completo
Commission Will Send to Mayor All
Data It Has Relating to Alleged
Protection of Disorderly Houses by
Police Commissioners.
The Vice Commission, it was an
nounced authoritatively yesterday,
will meet at 5 o'clock Monday after- j
noon at the Jefferson Hotel, to tak.*j
action on the Mayor's request for 1
the (11111(7 with hlni of such evldonce
as It may have In Its possession that
hears upon the police administration
of the city, with reference to its hand-t
IIUK of the commercialized vlco prob- i
It is regarded as a reasonable as-j
sumption that the Mayor's request
for additional Information will be
promptly met, and that he will be fur
nished all the pertinent evidence tlsat
the commission has collected. The
report of the commission's investiga
tions, It is stated, tills a volume of
*>00 pages. Much of this record has
ti? do with individuals and episodes
that have no relation to the question
of the culpability of the police admin
istration in conniving, as It lias been
intimated, at the maintenance of
vicious resorts outside the former seg
regated district.
The Mayor and the chairman of the
Vice Commission have reached an un
derstanding as to the evidence that is
desired, and It is understood that when
the supplementary report Is filed it
will contain nothing: that Is not strictly I
relevant to the point at Issue.
With the meeting of tho commission ]
on Monday night for the purpose of |
acting on tho Mayor's request, the
movement for an investigation of tho
I'ollce Board Is expected to proceed
swiftly to a conclusion. The Mayor, In
his letter of February 15, to the com
mission, Intimated clearly that further
action will be taken. Without the full
and complete evidence, he told the com
mission, such further action as he might
take might suffer from Its prematurity.
It has gradually come to be recog
nized that the Mayor's powers aro too I
limited to permit him to Institute and
prosecute an investigation himself, and i
that the Investigation, If It Is to come,
should be conducted by tho Council, j
which alone has authority to elect or
remove members of the I'ollce Hoard.
Should the Mayor rtnd upon exam
ining the evidence filed with him by
the commission, that there is reason
nlile ground upon which to base an In
quiry, he will probably transmit It to
the Council with a simple recommenda- i
tion to this effect. That body would
then appoint a special Joint committee
to conduct the probe, and the investi
gation would be on.
