SAYS EVIL FORCES ! PLOT AGAINST CITY i , i I Maclachlan Warns Against! | Movement to Keep Discredited Administration in Power. I VOTERS ARE DELINQUENT Preacher Blames Police, Church and Nonvoting Citizens for Vice Situation. "Already the forces of unrighteous ness are at work preparing to nullify the prohibition lawn and lo discredit the conclusions of the Vice Commission, If not to perpetuate In onice the same kind of administration that has made possible the unspeakable conditions? I speak by the book?revealed in the i unpublished part of the Vice Commis sion proceedings." This was the startling: charge made yesterday morning by Rev. H. D. C. Maclachlan. D. D., pastor of the Seventh Street Christian Church, In the courso of a sermon dealing In a neutral way with the danger of resting on the oars after having won an apparent victory and the necessity for keeping up the .fight against commercialized vice and] legalized lawlessness. Corning 011 the eve of a campaign for Increasing the size of the electorate, presumably for the purpose of enlarg ing the Influence of the worthy citizen ship at the next election, the charge that evil Influences are already at work to perpetuate in authority unworthy officials was all the more significant. CHARGE IS APPLIKD TO POLICE SITUATION The charge was popularly applied to the state of affairs growing out of the police investigation. While Dr. Mac lachlan nowhere in his morning sermon undertook to make his reference to the maladministration more clear, It was evident that he had In mind the por i tion of the Police Board now under fire. Dr. Maclachlan keeps his fingers closely upon the public pulse. Hia intimate connection with the city's so cial service forces and his familiarity with the political situation gave weight ; to his charge that forces arc already busy undernfning the work of the Vice | Commission and seeking to perpetuate in olflce the authorities whom the com mission has denounced. In the remainder of his sermon. Dr. Maclachlan avoided further specific reference lo the charge. His hearers were left to work out for themselves to what degree the Indictment could be substantiated. While a few social workers and pessimistic citizens have for some time professed to see a dls ; tlnct tendency on the part of certain political forces In the city to discredit the work of the Vice Commission and to vitiate the charges preferred by it against the three police commissioners under fire. Dr. Maclachlan last night for the first time gave this suspicion public voice. KXI.inCES OX TOPIC AT KVKM.V(J SKHMOX Dr. Muclachlan. in his evening ser mon, entitled Tiic Parting of the Ways," enlarged upon his reference of i the morning to the local vice situation, i enumerating what ho thought the fund- j amental causes of the present state of | affairs, and pointing out the remedy for existing conditions. There has been a threefold failure in Richmond, he said?a faihire on the part j of the authorities to carry out the law i they had sworn to execute, a failure on ! the part of the citizens to fulfill their < civic duty in registering their will at j tho polls, and a failure on the part or j the moral and religious forces of the I city to keep alive the ideal of a purer t life and a cleaner city. Commening upon tho alleged inef- | ficlency of 'he city olllcials, Dr. Mac lachlan said that the people had been j hoodwinked # into the belief that the laws of Richmond were enforced, where as the findings of the Vice Commis sion had proven conclusively that the i laws were openly and flagrantly vio lated, for which 110 valid excuse could be given. "l.lHiAI.I/.F.n I.AWI.KSSXESS" FOUND ON KVERY IIAM) The laws provided for a segregated district, said the preacher, yet nearly as many resorts for Immoral pur poses were found outside the limits of this district as were within its con fines. Gambling was more prevalent J than they had ever dared think. There ! was "legalized lawlessness" on every ' hand, he said, yet the people fancied j they had a Board of Police Cominls- [ sloncrs whose duty it was to appoint I a police force who would see that these j things did not exist and would run them to enrth when their existence 1 was detected. But, Mr. Maclachlan said, people at- j ways get the government It deserves. The power Is theirs to have a clean, un- I polluted city, and if they have one ! where there is not only lawlessness, j but protected lawlessness, nobody Is to | blame but themselves. The C5od-glven privilege of the ballot is theirs, and i thoy may have whom they choose lo j write their statutes and administer their laws. There were in Richmond, said Dr. Maclachlan, L'6,000 men eligible to reg istration. Out of this numbor only 12,000 were registered voters, and never more than 8,030 cast their votes In any olectlon. These nonvoters, he said, were not always a lawless, Irresponsi ble set, who knew little of civic respon sibilities and cared less, but many of them were reputable citizens and con sistent church memhors. Fine senti ments. said the preacher, were never known to win nn election. Votes, and votes only, were of the utmost import ance. ITAItn TO SKCIJIIK DKSI It A D 1,10 CA NDIOATKS The minister said that ho recognized the fact that It was sometimes hard to find desirable candidates. Men who would make good officers, looking al ways to the wishes and the welfare of their constituents, were usually of large affairs, who deemed It unfair to themselves and those dependent upon j them to relinquish lucrative positions (Continued on Second l'age.)

Prevalence of Decadent Standards In Part to Kmufj Complacency and Lenient At titude Towards Moral Delinquency. In a special sermon. commemorating: the growth of the city during the last Hfty years, Rev. W. Russi'll Howie, D. D., rector of St. Paul's Church, last night touched upon vice conditions existing In Richmond and upon the councllmanlc Investigation of three police commis sioners. Tho services were conducted particu larly for the members of the Richmond Rotary Club, who attended in a body. Mrs. J. E. B. Stuart, wife of the famous Confederate cavalry leader, was an interested listener to the historical narrative. A'1?'" reciting the story of that April morning when President Davis was notified while In church that Lee's lines had been hroken, and that the city must be evacuated. Dr. Bowie referred to tho great heritage which the city had re ceived from those whose love and labors restored it from ashes, and uttered the fervent hope that as tho city had risen in physical power and greatness, so would she also rise su perior to the present moral stress. IDEALISM HAS MARKED CITY'S WHOLE HISTORY "Most of all, and above all In the work that has been done to build the city of to-day," he said, "there has been the power of an Idealism which aided Richmond In no common way. She has been something more than a material creation: more than tho outward form. By those who havo given most to hnr she has been served with a certain romantic and lovellko devotion as men serve that which their souls hold high. ?'And now to-day what shall we say of our heritage? Can we resolve less .han to keep tho city worthy of all that those who lived for her?aye. and who died for her?have given her a right to be? "I thtnk you will recognize at once the particular ami urgent application which these thoughts have for us now. We have been told In these last months more clearly than we knew before tho facts about that sin In Richmond which in Its measure Is every city's problem nnd every city's shame. Wo cannot Ignore these things. We dare not for our own sake; wo dare not for others' sakes. If the South has looked to Rich mond for encouragement and Inspira tion In material reconstruction, so it will look?for good or 111?to her for example In moral matters, too.

And the one thing we assume Is that they shall determine it with justice and with fearlessness. "But out of the facts as they have developed these things stand out already as true: "KlrBt, that among,at least a part of the people of Richmond the conscience that ought to hate vice has grown cal lous. No one can havo gone to the hearings of the Council committee and listened to the coarse amusement among the crowd In Instances when witnesses spoke <f this or that man's Impurity as a common thing, without feeling his spirit bum with the awful sense of tho need for a new nnd blazing Insistence upon that cleanness of life which so many have lightly thrown away.

I Prince von Iluelow, German ambassa dor to Rome, Is Bald to have frowned on this suggestion, fearing it would be a I new source of friction between Austria and Italy.
