RICHMOND, Va., March 15.—The house of delegates of the Virginia general assembly late yesterday passed the Brown-Horsley referen dum bill submitting the question of the state’s highway financing policy to a vote of the people. The vote was 66 to 23.

Session Prolonged. Efforts of Delegate U. Holman Wil lis of Roanoke to amend the bill so as to make the referendum state wide Instead of by senatorial and house districts met with failure. The last hope of linal adjournment | of the extraordinary session by the j end of this week was dashed upon i the rocks when the senate adopted a resolution setting the highway financing measures as the special and continuing order for Monday. The resolution carried an agreement to vote on the measures not earlier than 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon nor later than 11 o'clock Wednesday night. Leviathan to Be Inspected.

BUNKIifPOLICE WISiHAND Detective Scrivener Is Own er of Dog Who Will Help Hunt Criminals. "Bunk,” Washington's first police dog to be connected with official life, made an auspicious entry into the police department today. He Is to be the property of Detec tive Arthur Scrivener. He has been delayed in transit to this city for more than ten days. During this in terim detectives at headquarters oc cupied their spare time by "spoofing" Scrivener about buying a collar and leash for the non-arriving dog. This morning Scrivener reached the climax and borrowed a police dog to show the men, under the spuriefus claim that it was his puppy which had ar rived. At 1 o'clock Scrivener got an as signment to go to the Raleigh Hotel immediately. A crazy man was rais ing Cain in Room 336. Scrivener re sponded. Accompanied by the house detective at the hotel, with his hand on the butt of his revolver, ready for action and sparkling for violence, he entered the room at 1:03 to subdue the maniac. He found a police puppy, sitting quietly in the middle of the room, licking his pink chops and looking his prettiest with a St. Patrick’s rib bon tied about his neck. It was Bunk. The room was oc cupied by C. W. Rose of Ithaca, N. Y., trainer of police dogs, from whom Scrivener obtained his puppy. Rose was hidden in a clothes closet when Scrivener entered. Proudly, young Scrivener walked up to the dog, who rather strangely growled at , him. Within fifteen minutes he had convinced the pup of his friendship and paraded him to police headquarters. In the head quarters' squadroom in a few days christening ceremonies for the puppy will take place. This is the true story of the arrival of the first police dog to be attached to headquarters. Bunk has the posi tion of being the first canine sleuth in-the-maklng to come under the wing of Inspector Grant's force. Births Reported.
