It seems a pity that the question cf the legality or Mr. K. C. Petzold's membership on the board < f aldernu n should hsve been raised. Mr. Pettold is confident that when the board is made acquainted with the facts and has heard an opinion from the city attorney, it will lie.decided that aeat is legally held, but there U u possibility, at least, that the Third ward alderman may lie com polled to retire by strict interpretation of a law that was not intended to apply to such ensas as this. Mr. Peflxold. for compensation from Potfitnaster Hopkins, net from the United States government, has East End maii handled in bis drug store. He is not. strictly spcaklug, an em ploye of the government, and It wotila seem rather ridiculous to !>ar him front a seat in the ojty council because mull is delivered at his place of busluea. However, if City Attorney Massie should decide that the aldermau is a g' vcrnmeut employe within the meaning of the Virginia statute pro? hibiting federal employes to bold scats in city councils, of course Mr. Petxold will have so surrender his membership. When Dr. William Hoskins resigned his seat as a nicnib' r of the board Oi aldermen, his surviving colleague. Dr. Longan, nominated a man who had the support of a large number oi Third ward voters, but who was strenuously opposed bj many of the leading people cf the ward. As a result of this situation, the board took an uapreventcd action, declining to elect to the vacant scat the uouuaee of the snrv.vlng member. This prom? ised to make things embarrassing lor the board and to stir up a bitter nghi among the Third ward people, but the trouble ended with a happy s lutlon lust seemed to please- all parties con cerned. Mr. Petsold, probably with out b'.s knowledge or consent, wa placed In nomination by Dr. Longan. and wh?n be was elected the fight was over. He scented to be entirety acceptable to those who had fought for the election of Mr. HunUr r Grimes, and tbrse who bad so vigor oasly opposed Mr Grimes apparently were equally aa well satiated Thus a troublesome srui(kmi was disposed of. and a popoisr. capable ??nslaess man of the Third ward ?? eecarrd to represent bis neighbor in the council Mr. Petr Id will mak ? gocd councilman and his people waat htm Then fore.

In Norfolk the facilities for emergency hospital service are inade? quate and as a result patients some? time suffer unnecesarlly and the po? lice arc inconvenienced. Here there are no facilities to be inadequate, and uny one who has not seeu u poor devil battered, bruised, cut or shot' making a night of It on the bare, hard benches of thu station probably can not realize just what tbi:: means.
