Pending the return of Frank Wal

of triaJs for ouster proceedings against
Chief of Police Sherry, Captain Pol

been no now developments in the po

? In regard to the extradition of Frank
Waller there is some doubt s;ncc Cap
tain A. S. Wright, chief of detectives,
yesterday received conflicting tele
grams. One of these telegrams ?;is
from O. J Roush. hie: of police >?.
Lima, which read "Prank Waller le
leased. Not Mitl'u .cut eviilen e to tile
charge." Another telegram from I'e
',tecti.ve Sergeant W K \V.tynuvk, ?h<>
was sent t<> bring Prank Waller back
to stand trial on two Indictments in
this city, road: "Papers contested by
Attorney for Waller. Hearing on
29th at 11 o'clock."
Officials cf tho Richmond Police Pe
paxtmcnt are at a loss to understand*
the action of the Lima police auihori

sage from the chief of police of 1. ma.
Frank Waller lias been released since
there was. !n their opinion, not sutli

jury returned se\en indictments?one
of them felonies for biting off Ben Ja
c-obs's ear?has no; yet been appre

sus of opinion is that he has skipped. 1
However. tJslbe-,. K Pollock, attorney
for Price, persist.- in his belief that
Price has not skipped, but will return;
to "face the music." He said that
Price's brother-in-law was moving
from one of th- udjoming counties and
ihat in all probability Price had gone
there to assist in the moving.
Ben Jacobs yesterday appeared in

Striking home to those present at
the various meetings held in the four
city wards last night the many sacri
tU-es our soldiers are making in the
field and the fact that the-war is not
going to ho won until sacritices are
mad? that cause a suffering worthy
of victory, speakers of the special
pledge drive tor government war ss.iv- I
ings stamps aroused tl\eir audiences to;
intensive enthusiasm and succeeded in j
securing goodly subscriptions, accord-j
ing to announcements of ward gen->
?rals. Figures could not he ascertained I
from all or the wards last night hut
will he tabulated and announced some-j
time t<>-<lay from the headquarters of!
t lie committee.
? 'hairmau Andrew J. Gray, Jr.. of'
the pledge drive committee, had not j
heard from the six generals having
charge of the different wards last night I
hut said I hat he felt that the results!
would prove gratifying. Having at-j
tended several of the meetings in Lee!
Ward himself, he said that they were
successful from every standpoint and I
that the meeting held in the First
English Lutheran Church returned the i
largest total, which was $1S,000. other I
meetings in the same ward subscribed'
from ft.Oon to 510.000 worth of stamps.
The accurate report for all of the!
wards wiil lie made to Colonel Grav
itt'.i'oitr wii.t, exceed si no,000
The report from .lefTerson Ward as
f.i r as coulO be learned from the in
formation obtainable by ?V. H. Adams,
general of the ward, was t?? the effect
that approximately $100,000 was sub
scribed. This was a conservative es
timate. Mr. Adams stated, which was
based on the showing made at several
of the precinct meetings. At Leigh t
Street P.aptist Church about $1,000 of]
tamps was pledged and $10,000 worth i
at tiio Venalde Street Kaptist Church, j
.Joseph E. Powers, general of Madi
son Ward on the North .Side, in giv- !
i:;g nut what information he was able j
to learn last night, of the progress i
made in that ward, said that subscrlp- I
ti'uis were good bui that the attend- j
ance was small. This he said was
thought due to an illusion of "stay-at
homtrs" in the belief that they could
avoid taking out subscriptions by such
tactics. Then, again, he said It was
thought probable that many did not
attend because of having subscribed to
what they believed their limit and felt
they would be subject to embarrass
ment if they did come and failed to
take more. This was the opinion of
many speakers who had to forego their
speeches because of the small attend
ances in this ward. However, it was
stated that every effort would be made
to get the subscriptions of those who
stayed at home.
Judge Ernest H. Wells, general of
Madison Ward on the South Side,
could not give figures because of not
having received tabulations from the
various precincts. He believed that
the results would not be as large as
expected because of small attendances.
R. W. Wilson, general of North Lee
Ward, stated in a hurried report that
all of the precinCts had not been heard
from, but that one meeting at Ginter
Park secured subscriptions amounting
to ?r>.:.00. . a report from the South
Side I.re Ward was not obtainable.
T. Gray lladdon, general of Clay
Ward, reported stirring meetings In all
of tho precincts, and that at that held
at William Kox School about $7,000 was
pledged. Others made corresponding
subscriptions in proportion to the num
ber in attendance.
At the Lyric Theater yesterday and
last night, after addresses by Hiram
M. Smith. Henry Sehwarzschild and W.
A. Powell, a total of $4,561 was an
nounced. Mr, Sehwarzsrhild, who was
speaker at the Orleon moving picture
house, announred $570 of subscriptions,
and at the Mijou, where J. C. Itlakey
addressed the. audiences throughout
the afternoon, and at night, $1,750 was
an nounced.
Or. \\ A. Plecker. who addressed a
meeting in the Presbyterian Church in
Scott's addition reported $1,330 worth
of stamps pledged, and Rev. E. E.

Henrico County, chairman of p. com

by Oliver J. Sand* for Ap

The sale of the Chamber of Com
merce Building, a modern ten-story
office structure. for approximately
$400,000 was announced yesterday. The
building was acquired from F. I*. Loth, j
who erected the structure several yarn
ago. by the Chamber of Commerce
Building Corporation, which is com-,
posed of Oliver J. Sands, president of
the American National Bank: IS. II.
Harwood. Thomas Gresham and others.
The transfer is to be made at once.
There will be no general change in
the policy of the office building, it was
announced. The wew corporation will
continue to operate the structure for
general offices purposes, and It in un
derstood that practically all of the space
has been leasfd. A portion of the gen
eral offices of the Southern Railway
Company, which are to be removed,
will be located in this building, ar
rangements having been concluded to
use practically all of the available
space as soon as necessary changes,
including the construction of llreproof
vaults, can be made.
No announcement was made of the
purchase price, but it was understood |
that approximately $400,000 was paid
for the structure. The building is lo
cated at the northwest corner of Sixth
and Main Streets. It is a modern tire
proof ten-story building, and was erect
ed several years ago when the Chamber
of Commerce Building at Ninth and
Main Streets, the site on which the
First National Bank Building is now
located, was torn down. The tenth
floor of the building is occupied by the

Samuel Cox In Convicted of Trannport
Ing Ardent Spirits Into
Samuel Cox. a Washington policeman
who was arrested about two months
ago. was yesterday given a trial in
the Hustings Court on the charge of
transporting ardent spirits. Cox was
found guilty and sentenced to one
month in jail anrl $300 fine. Kdgar B.
Knglish, his attorney, entered the plea
that t'ox had found the. suitcases filled
with whisky and bad taken possession
of these suitcases preparatory to turn
ing them over lo the local authorities. j
However, this plea ev'dently failed to ;
move the jury.
When Benjamin Timberlake. colored.!
assistant janitor at the First l>lstrict. I
failed to appear in court Judge Rich-i
ardson directeri the clerk to "issue, a
capias returnable forthwith." This ac
tion was taken after the court hftd
quickly read a certificate from nr. R.
Jones, of f>33 North Second Street, lo
the effect that- Timberlake was sick I
and under his treatment. Timberlake
was arrested some time ago with a
life br-lt which contained seventeen
pints of wnisky. Commonwealth's At
torney Wise called Attorney Pollock's
attention to the fact that Timberlake
had already been granted one continu
ance. I
in behalf of Paul Ford, a Newport!
News negro, arraigned for transport
ing ardent spirits. Attorney Pollock
asked that the cise go over to the Oc
tohe* term because the negro was a
valued employee of the Newport News
Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company
engaged in government work. How
ever. Judge Richardson was unmoved
and through his attorney Ford entered j
a plea of guilty. The court then gnvt i
him the minimum penalty, but remarked!
that since the minimum penalty did ?
not seem to have the desired effect j
he was strongly tenipte.l lo deal out I
heavier punishme.it.
