OF- M SOUTH II Was Liberally Given In Old Confederate Capital WELCOMED IN RICHMOND The First Shore Demonstra tion Given to the Officers and Men of the World Girdling Fleet Was One Never to Be Forgotten. Richmond, Feb. 23. The southland paid homage today to the globe girdiing fleet In the old capital of the confederacy. "We welcome you to the hearts of a people who yield to no one in devotion to the American navy, or In loyalty to our flag." Was the sentiment expressed at a luncheon by Mayor Richardson, In welcoming Rear Admiral Sperry, Rear Admiral Wainwright and 54 officers. The luncheons at which men of all walks of civil life and all ages and of un yielding loyalty to the cause of Lee and Jefferson Davis, fraternized with the fighting men of the navy, was given by the Richmond chamber of commerce. Admiral Sperry received an ovation. He referred to "his first sejarate welcome- since we have re turned to our shores." He said he had not read his official mail since arriving on the American side and smilingly added: "I don't know where the secrutary of the navy is, and what is more, I don't care." The admiral pointed out that the voyage around the world was no junket "Wnile we have been en circling the globe," he said, "we doubled the score of last year's tar get practice. The fleet's efficiency "1ia-tnorea'Bfctr"5T "per cent by economy of coal consumption, due to the hard and faithful work of the men below decks. When a contest comes the navy must know how to get there and how to stay there when It gets there. "Xow the world is governed bv the people, for it is not sufficient that a solitary arbitrary ruler should know the paper possibilities of contest questions at issue under constitutional forms when in all the world today, even in Russia, public sentiment may force a ruler into war or keep him out of it. Since the people generally are only impressed by what they see it is necessary, if you require the peace of the world, show your fleet." Congressman Lamb of Virginia de clared if Virginia "had had a dozen Merrimacs instead of one, fifty years ago, we should have had peace instead of four years of bloody struggle." Rear Admiral Wainwright, In his ad dress, bowed to the gallery' and re marked, ''We can all shoot straight er, fight better when we are remem bered by the girls at home." STORMY WEATHER. It Greeted the Homecoming of the Fleet. Fort Monroe. Fet. 23. The bad weather which greeted the battleship fleet off Virginia Caps yesterday, the worst the ships have experienced In any port en their way apund the world, continued today. Storm signals were hoisted on the beach and during the afternoon a stiff southeaster set in. The ships paid little attention to the blow, but the launches were buf feted about freely. That part of the roadstead west of Old Point Pier seemed fairly chok(l with fighting craft today. The two long lines of the combined squadrons if Admiral Arnold stretched away from the dock almost as far as the ye could reach, the gray ships of the stay-at-home fleet fading away in the mist overspreading the harbor. Near ly one-half of the ships began coaling despite the weather. It is hoped the ships will have been coaled by Satur day in order that the men may parade in Norfolk on that day. A committee from Norfolk visited the flagship Connecticut today to extend an invitation to the fleet to be the city's guest on Saturday, but Admiral Sperry had gone to Rich mond. There is little doubt the Nor folk invitation will be accepted, and several thousand men will be sent to parade. This will be the first home short leave. They are kept aboard ship in anticipation of inspection by Admiral Sperry. The battleship Ver mont of the first division is yet in quarantine. A case of smallpox de veloped on board. One of the most interesting sights today was the departure of a large number of enlisted men whose terms H E WE PAY HIGHEST CASH PRICES FOR OLD GOLD AND SILVER AND PRECIOUS STONES.

IN SAN FRANCISCO A RAILWAY COMMISSION One of the Accomplishments ol Council Session WITH SOME AMENDMENTS De Souza Bill Was Passed by Unanimous Vote-The Gra ham County Agony Further Prolonged-Many Bills Went Through Council. The expected did not happen In the legislature yesterday. That Is, there was no outward move in the direction of cutting the rib out of the county of Graham for the foimat'on of the new county of Lincoln. But, according to history, ribs have been cut out of peo ple only when they were asleep, as in the case of one Adam. But Graham county was not usleeo. Though there was nothing done out wardly, there was a good deal of mill ing around in the corridors and the committee rooms. It could not be stated last night when the long ex pected bill would be brought in. though the advocates of Lincoln county say that they have no doubt of the passage of it. There are evidences of an effort to come to some sort of terms with the people of the valley who, on their part. are said not to be in a compromising mood; they want nothing but that Gra ham should be left intact. If their wishes should be granted at the end of the session, they will likely find themselves facing a county seat re moval war. The Railway Commission Bill. The Arizona, railway commission bill passed the council late yesterday after noon wun a rush. There was no visible opposition to it for it received the unanimous vote of the council, a supposed result of the last conference between sub-committees of council committees and representatives of the railroads last Saturday. Several coun cil amendments found their way into the bill. They all have to do, how ever, with the constitution of the com mission and not at all with its opera tions. One amendment cuts out the attor ney, who was to receive $2,500 a. year. tne same as the commissioners, and It is required that one of the commis sioners shall be an attorney with a record behind him of three years' practice In the territory. One- of the commissioners, as origi nally provided, shall have some knowl edge of the art of railroading, and the third member is required to have no other qualification than a residence within Arizona of two years. Another amendment restricts the power of the governor In mak ing appointments to the com mission and provides that the appointees can not act until their ap pointments have been actually con firmed by the council. Other changes were of little or no Importance. It is understood that all of these amend ments will be accepted by the. assem bly and that little time will be lost in transmitting the bill to the governor. The bill was put through with little formality. The report was received from Chairman O'Neill of the Judiciary committee, who moved that the bill as amended be considered engrossed and put on final passage. This usually re quires a suspension of the rules, and Mr. Finley offered a mild objection, to which no heed was given by the presi dent, and the bill went to a vote. Another bill which was advanced toward completion was the house measure of Mr. Railev for the aboli tion of the American flag, the eagle and the Jackass; or more specifically. the removal of party viginettes from election ballots. Home for Arizona Pioneers. About the only action of the assem bly was to consider in committee of the whole, in the afternoon, Mr. Mor ris' bill for the establishment at Pres cott of a home for Arizona Pioneers who have attained the age of 65, and have lived In the territory for twenty five years. The bill originally proposed a tax levy for the building of the home, which would have raised in the neigh borhood of $S0,000, and another levy for the maintenance of it. All that was a great deal more money than was needed. The bill was accordingly amended providing for a lump appro priation of $25,000 for the building; $15,000 for maintenance, and $5,000 for a site. In this form the bill, after a consid eration occupying the whole of the afternoon session, was favorably re ported. An attempt to suspend the rules and pass the bill failed by two votes, insuring the passage of the bill by a comfortable margin when It Is approached 1n regular order. A THREE MONTHS Special course in Bookkeeping and Shorthand has been arranged for at the LAMSON BUSINESS COLLEGE, beginning at the opening of the Spring Term, March 1. The Anti Gambling Business It was like a voice from the grave when substitute for Council Bill No. 10 came up In the council in the committee of the whole in the after noon. Council Bill 10 is the Day bill of which the Duffy bill, already a law is an exact copy. Before the Duffy bill had been brought into the council a committee had prepared this substitute as a modification of the i rigors of the Day bill. It was much less stringent. It allowed sporting gentlemen to spit at mark, did not regard whist parties as felonies and did not specifically interdict little quiet games among gentlemen. When the substitute made Its ap pearance yesterday it was thought at first to be a formal proceeding pre liminary to its indefinite postpone ment. But Mr. Hampton had another mission in view. He wanted it sent after the Duffy law in the hope that it would overtake It and render it void. The Horticultural Bill This measure which has slumbered1 in the committee since early in the session was taken up in the commit tee of the whole and . was agreed to section by section until that one was reached appropriating $3u00 for car rying out the purposes of the bill, to protect the horticultural Interests against insect pests such as the San Jose and various other kinds of de structive Bcales. Here Mr. Breen balked. He said that it seemed to have been the adopted policy of the legislature to let every county stand on its own bottom. He instanced the repeal of the ranger law and the public ex aminer law. Coconino county had none of these scales ' to combat; en tomologists had discovered nothing there more deadly than avoirdupois scales, apothecaries' scale and the scales of Justice. Why, he asked, should Coconino contribute to the expense of fighting the red scale, the black scale and all the other rainbow hued scales? Mr. Breen's objection was futile and the section was adopted. Later, after a favorable report on the bill. It was taken up under a suspension f the rules and was passed. -' THE COUNCIL 6ESSION. It Was Given Up Exclusively to the Transacton of Business. There was a stir of expectancy in the council chamber. There was an apprehension that the Graham county war was about to open, and, one, after another, the new bills were read by the clerk, but, at the end of the list, there appeared none setting off the new .county of Lincoln. Nor was there anything else in the short morning ses sion to break the dull monotony of the routine, unless, perhaps, it may have b't'ift.Hr. W'eedln'g bill transferring the insurance fees from the office of the secretary to the territorial treasury through the office of the auditor and, as Mr. Weedln. explained, to carry out the failed purpose of the Cowan act of six years ago. Other bills were as follows: By Mr. Hunt, defining the meanings of the words "banks" and "trust com pany," and to prevent a misleading use of either; also to prevent a private bank from setting itself out as a banking company. By Mr. Finley, a bill providing pun islunent for an attempt to evade the payment of fares on railroad trains. By Mr. Finley, a bill relating to the sale of Intoxicating liquors on railroad trains, permitting such sale on the granting of a license at $200 a year. The following bills were passed: Mr. Goodrich's bill, providing for the protection of purchasers, endorsees and others who unwittingly assume possession of or responsibility for forged Instruments. Mr. Hampton' bill amending the law regulating the admission on cer tificates of practicing foreign . attor neys by reducing the previous practice from six years to thrt-e years. Mr. Goodrich's bill for .the protection of stockholders in mining companies by , restricting the power of directors. Substitute for council bill 28, author izing corporations whose properties He outside the territory to maintain of fices within the territory, and Invest ing the corporations with other pow ers, for instance, permitting railroad companies to acquire other lines or to purchase the stock of other lines, the bill passed by a vote of 10 to 1, Mr. O'Neill voting against it on the ground that It authorized a violation of the Sherman anti-trush law. Mr. Sutter's bill providing that Jus tices of the peace may act as police Judges in incorporated towns whose ordinances have made no provision for such municipal magistrates. The bill protects counties against fee) in pro ceeding in such police courts. Mr. Bailey's bill, abolishing the party vignettes from election ballots, was passed bv a party vote. The Afternoon Session. The afternoon session of the coun cil opened with another inrush of bills. One by Mr. Norton requires street cars in cities of more than 8000 population to be equipped with air brakes and to have each a motor man and a conductor. A failure to comply with the provisions is to be a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of from $25 to $300 for each offense. Mr. O'Neill introduced a bill pro viding for a system of interchange able mileage within the territory. It is to be non-descriptive and trans ferable and is to be sold at the rate. of three cents for 1000 mile tlcKet and two and a half cents for 3000 mile tickets. Among the bills passed were the following: Substitute for house bill No. 12, providing bounties on wild animals introduced in the house by Mr. Woolf. The substitute fixes the bounties on lobo wolves, Hons, pumas and panthers at $10; on lynx, skunks and wildcats at $1 and on coyotes at $2; raccoons, 25 cents. All these bounties must be paid and super visors may allow a bounty of five cents on Jack rabbits and gophers.

Chicago, Feb. 23. The re-trial of the Standard Oil company of Indiana was unexpectedly delayed today when Judge Anderson, In the federal court quashed the panel of 130 veniremen because of the large proportion of farmers among those summoned. "It was a farmer's jury which brought in the verdict making Judge Landis' fine of $29,240,000 in the orig inal case possible." Attorney John S. Miller, of the defense promptly re minded the court that the panel counting showed but three Chicago- Ians. ' It looks like design, or a strange co-incidence," commented Judge Anderson. 'I don't want to start In this hear ing feeling that there is something not quite fair. I think this pan. t ought to be set aside. I will instruct the jury commission to put in 150 names of men, a good proportion of wnom snail De good business men from Chicago and Cook county. This case is tried in a district composed of an enormous commercial city and several rural counties. The country may have purer air, higher moral standards and greater intelligence than the city, but that is an open question. However I am not going outside the issue when I say that if the Jury was composed partly or Dusiness metr, wno" would realize the great industrial and commercial phase of the case, a more satisfactory and just verdict may be reached." Judge Anderson said he would hear argument of counsel tomorrow as to whether shipments or settlements of freight charges constituted the of fense. There were, it is charged thirty-six settlements of freight charges in certain shipments made by the Standard Oil company. Accept ing this view, a maximum fine of $720,000 is possible.
