8(a(o Game Department AVill Ex
pend No More Funds at
Tlds Time.
Individual KfTorts Have Ilccn Made
in Virginia Without Success.
Other States Find Cost Cireater
Than Kxpcctcd.
Thn Ptato Department of flame nnd ;
Inland Fisheries has (Infinitely decided I
not to cxpr nd any more money upon i
the establishment of ringneok pheas- |
ants until it. i:? proved that the liiid :
will thrive in tills State. This decision I
if tho result of a review by tho tie- j
partmont ?>f its expenditures for pheas- '
unt eggs last year. i
Under the advice of Walter E. Hath- j
away, tlio (lamij Department ban is- '
sued several letters in answer to mnny i
inquiries from all parts of Virginia, j
The department said:
"We find that the department ex- ]
ponded Js.22'1 for live rlngneck pheas- )
ants. and $1,009 for pheasant pkks for;
hatching, during 1917. Wo also note j
that for many years past individual i
efforts have been made in various j
parts of the State to establish tnis :
Imported game bird, and that in 101.1 j
tho "American Game Propagation and !
Game Protective Association liberated 1
300 live ringneck pheasants In Vir- j
ginla from which n4 results were ot?- 1
tained. '
111 it us wit,i. tii it 1VI-; here:
"Therefore, upon consultation with
the Governor, the department has de
cided not to spend any more money ?
upon this Imported species, until it j
tihds out whether the ringnock pheis- j
nnt will thrive In the State. Tin
shooting of the ringne.-lc Is prohibited '
for three years. Sutllclont breeding |
stock has now been liberated in nearly
every coun'y of tho State, enough to
give them a noofl start, und we ?i-e-?
it prudent to .now wait for results, (
rather than to spend large sums In an t
effort to establish a new game bird,
which we may never be able to raise ;
here naturally.
"These bird* In England n re raised i
in pheasantrioB owned by wealthy men,
are turned out in convoys and then ,
driven by the shooting boxes, and as j
they fly by the boxes, the sportsin-n .
shoot them. Those that are killed are j
gathered up and sent to markets and ,
sold to help pay the expense of the j
private gamekeepers who raised them.
"We do not believe that such hunt
ing would ever become popular in 'he l
State and we believe that money ex
pended in trying to establish forelir*
game birds had better be ijs<m1 in con.
serving our native game birds, whk-h
are indigenous. We also note that the
Strtes which are trying to establish ?
lh a rlnKnecl: are paying out much
more money than they had anticipated, j
nnil are not meeting with the results,
they expected, and in our opinion will
get disgusted and quit, ere long."

In addition to Governor Westmore
land Davis, Mayor George Alnslle, Mr.
Pou ?nd tho directors of tiie campaign
in this City, places of honor on the
platform have been assigned to Major
General Adelbert Cronkliite und the
American and foreign offl-:em from (
Camp Lee. Dr. J. A. C. Chandler and
all the prominent citizens who have
been designated as aids. The chorus
of the John Marshall High School, tin
der the direction of Walter C. Mercer,
which will lead in the singing, will j
a'.se sit on the platform, together with j
the strong orchestra, which lias be
come famous for its work at the Sun-|
day sings. The Marino Hand will be
stationed at the other end of the hall
or in the balcony.
The bands from Camp Dee are ex
pected to arrive this morning at 9 ;
o'clock, and will play at various points
throughout the city until the time for
the parade. During the.se concerts the
members of the women's organizations
will conduct a campaign among the j
audiences for the sale of Thrift Stamps.
Each purchaser will be decorated with
o. white tag bearing a largo red "T."
One hundred booths will be established
by the women throughout the city and
along the line of march, and that their
efforts in behalf of Uncle Sain will j
prove effective is assured by tho fact;
that $20,000 worth of stamps were sup- j
plied to the women's committee by the ;
headquarters oillce yesterday. J be ,
women will also have a booth In the
evening at the ill lies' Dull, and many 1
an additional contribution Is expected j
to take place at this festivity.
The ball will prove a most fitting j
climax to the celebration of Thrift Day. |
and a special feature will be the high (
order of the music to be furnished, sp<
clal arrangements having been made
to have one of tho bands from Camp;
Lee on hand to cure for this Important
detail. Tho original intention with j
which the bnll was arranged was to .
furnish the boys of tho regiment with
baseball outfits and other necessities
for their recreation fund, but the com
mittee in charge has announced that
If there is any residue it will be de
voted to the purchase of tobacco and ;
Elaborate decorations have been ar- ,
ranged for tho occasion, under the di- j
rection of experts from tho various do- I
partinent stores, and the women an
nounce that the refreshmonts which
will be enjoyed are In perfect accord
with tho high-class decorations and
It has boon seen to by tho directors
01* the pageant that no soldier partici
pating in the parade shall go hungry,
and contracts have been let to various
caterers for the neccssary supply of
refreshments. Tho ollleers of the ;
American, British and French armies 1
will be entertained at the. Westniore- |
land Club, and tho various regiments j
of soldiers and sailors will l.e cared
for at the various armories, in addi
tion to Major-General Cronkhito and
the members of his staff, tho following

Lieutenant II. Aird, Captain J. Toujan,
Captain H. Rose, Lieutenant J<. Bel
linger. Lieutenant F. Bo grand and
Lieutenant C. E. Domezon.
As a special precaution against the
possibility of tho parade being Inter
rupted when crossing Belvldero Street,
or being cut In two by some unexpect
ed interruption, arrangements have
been mad* by Chief Marshal Myorn
with tli?? local society of Hey Scouts,
whereby boys on bicycles will bo hta
tloned lit various points, with Instruc
tions to notify tho head of the column
Immediately, of the approach of any
trains or similar obstructions. The
various units of the pageant have been
Instructed to maintain a space of ten
paces between tho individual organiza
tions so that they shall not lose their
original Identity. The public Is also
requested to refrain from crowding in
firound Grace Street. between Fifth and
Ninth Streets, as this will only hamper
the paraders in falling Brnoothly into
line. A far better view of the com
plete procession can be obtained by
forming further, west along tho lino
of tnnrch.

Treatment by (ieneral Assembly.
Despite the million-dollar cut made
in the Legislature's perioral appropri-|
ntion bill, Stat?> institutions aro still j
r.llowod Increased appropriations equal J
to tho combined allowances and de
ficits of the two immediately preeed-j
Ing years, It was learned yesterday, j
when the bill was reviewed in the
Governor's olllce with the assistance
r?f his private secret;.ry, Colonel Loroy
1 lodges, economist and eliiciency an
alyst. in some cases an additional sum !
has been allowed fi>r emergencies that |
might grow out of increased expenses j
iltie to war conditions.
It was also learned, from other
sources, that the appropriations of the
1910 Legislature and the enduing df
llcltH were taken :.s a basis for re
adjusting ill" bill after the Cover- I
nor had his first conference with the j
conference committee appointed by the j
legislature to readjust the bill so that I
its allowances could be brought with- j
In the estimated revenue of the State,
for the next two years.
Analysis of the present bill shows j
Increases over the original in three i
Instances. Confederate pensions are]
In'-'rejtm'cl to $1.T,00,000 from $1,409,000;
Virginia llorne and Industrial School .
for Girls, in Chesterfield County, Is
given en increase of ?2.r?f>0 in the sec- j
Mid-year allowance, and the civil con- !
tlngent fund of general government 1
f-vpenso Is raised to $27.00o from *20,- I
000. The latter increase was especially!
Insisted upon by the Governor for the '
reason that no allowance whatever had '
been mad? ft> mak* the State budget I
law cfTertive. The $17,000 will be spent |
for surveys through which mis taker ,
similar to that which brought the leg
islators back to Richmond cannot be
repeated. The bill creating this law
originally contained an appropriation
for this purpose. but for some unex
plained reason was stricken from it
before its passage.
Pome of the biggest cuts noted in
th? bill are partly due to the Gover
nor's belief that the present is no timet
to ??root new buildings, since the na
tion needs much building niaterl.il and
prices are consequently much higher i
than be thinks they will be after the j
war close* The largest loss in ap-|
preprint ions Is accredited to t>-*> va
rious State hospitals In the different
parts of the State and to the epll^p
He colony. Just a little less than $?.
[>00 000 was appropriated in the orlg.
Inal bill fr.r thes?. Th? conference
[?ommlttee shaved ofT S2S9.000.
The next larsrest cut was from the
appropriation for roads, which orig-I
Inally nrionnte.i it. fl.s50.r00. The cut
was $2CC.00i>. This If said to be ample !
to take care of any Federal fund now ;
available to Virginia, nnd to guaran-<
lee an early beginning on the State'
ilghway system, for which provision i
was made by the Legislature.
The State Superintendent of Public!
Instruction will not suffer anv salary I
decrease, since the Governor" receded
from his desire to have the cut rnadt, '
when he learned that. the prerodlng '
superintendent had been allowed cer- I
tain fees. The department headed bv
the superintendent, however. had
M 10,000 shaved from Its appropriations
totaling $.*>.GOU.OOO.
^ he four State normal school were i
originally allowed $509,000. They lost '
">nly $18,300 of this amount. The Modi- !
cal College of Virginia, at ItiebmonJ. i
nnd its hospital lost $20,000 of its j
5100.00J appropriation, and the unl- i
rersity suffered a pruning of $40,000 I
from Its allowance of J3.11.900 for it- I
'elf and its hospital. Virginia Poly- |
technl* Institute lost $45,000 from Its
?3L'6.0A0. Appropriations to other
ichools nnd colleges were not changed.
Tho Penitentiary and the Sta'.*
Farm appropriations, amounting to
?361.700. were cut Just $C0.7."?0, and the
Virginia Home and Industrial School
Tor Girls lost $15,000 of Its total ap
propriation of $76,730. although an ad
ditional $2.5ao was given it for sec
ond year's work.
General expenses or government,
nriginally $760,000. were cut to an even !
5700,000. The Department of Public i
Printing lost SHI.700 of its $169.?S)*

Jovernor. who was not pleased with

Members of the Hottse of Delegates j

Ion in spite of tho fact that every new j
lovernor coining into the Mansion in

Perhaps the best "Joke" ever stajjed
in tho history of Virginia lawmaking
was pulled ofT In the Capitol late last
Wednesday night when, after threo
days of wrestling with the "angel" and
adamant refu.s*al to admit an error and
accept the Governor's demand that the
appropriation hill he scaled of Jl.O^O,
000, a chorus from the House, which
had adopted the report and wanted to
leave for home, invaded the serious,
proud and uncompromising Senate sing
ing "Oh, why not come to ?him' now?"
It was two, days later when the
Senate was converted; and even then
on the last roll call eleven said "no."
On Thursday night nothing but the
vigilance of the doorkeeper and the
serjeant-at-arms prevented tho same
delegation from waiting on tho ben
ate tn its solemn deliberations and re
peating, "Why do you wait, dear broth
er; why do you tarry so long? Why
not come to him now?"
Assistant Clerk of tho Senate and
Document Clerk John J. Jeter, whose
services with the Senate during the
session just closed were characterized
by one of the Senators on the lloor of
tho chamber as "the best and most
eflicient and loyal that he had ever
known in his life," and praised plso
by every Uopresentatlve in the body,
is again a candidate for Councilman
from Jefferson Ward. Every Senator
with whom Mr. Jeter was associated
?and that was all of them?left the
Capitol when tho Senate adjourned sine
die with the hope that his ward would
Bee fit to profit by re-electing Mr. Jeter
to the Council. Mr. Jeter has denounced
as false th<? charge that he championed

| WASHINGTON. March 22.?Tho great !
German tlrlvo on the western front j
was analyzed to-iluy by the War De- 1
partment officials as a stop-loss incvc
J rnent, Intended to frustrate an inter
i allied offensive from l>oth land and sea.
It was not believed even from a cold- ;
blooded military viewpoint any pos-'
' slblo pains the Teutonic forces might
accomplish would compensate for tho
! tremendous losses they must neces
! sarlly make. The strength of the op- J
; posing forces Is declared to be evenly
i matched. Jf there Is any advantage,
1 oitlier numerically or in material and
equipment, it is said to be with the
i allies.
A break in the morale of the British i
. forces under Field Marshal Sir Douglas j
I Ilalg, now meeting the brunt of the
j attack, Is the only contingency under
which a thrust that will endanger j
j French ports on the channel can be j
made, it was said. This is not beliovod ;
possible unless the arrival of rc-on
forcements is greatly delayed.
