WEDNESDAY EVENING, OCT. 6. 1U09.
Kev. James Cannon, jr., Rev. Sid? ney Peters sod Rev. W. Albury Chris tiao were closeted tor more than sd boor with Jodge R. Cirter Scott, of the Circuit Court of Richmond, yesterday, arid it soon became noised abrcad that tl ey were at the courthouse to present complaints as to tbe management of tbe s ali fair aod to xi quest tbe suppression cf some of tbe amusements on tbe grounds. Dr. Cannon ob'ained from J idge Ccott a note to Deputy Bberift Taylor, on duty at the fair, to afford proper protection to Dr. Cannon and bis friends. Tbe ministers complained thai Monday tbey were sot jfcted to annoy ance by "hoodlums,''wbo bad made it ? j ctlonable for them hy stsndicg it* r paths aod obstructing their prog ib'ough tbe grounds. It is under atoiu that Rev. Mr. Cannon and bi? li inisterial friends bad several com? plaints to register witb Judge Scott I amoog wbicb was tbat liquor wat* being dispensed at more tban one poirl on tbe .rounds, while the fair sssocia tun bad been granted only one licenst to do business in the bar line. It is rai* tbe conn's reply to tbis objection wet bbt tbe license referred to was eufficiet > in itself to cover tbe entire groonds A second objection raised by tbe minis? ters, it is said, wss one against tbe "whef of for une," tbe 10-cent game of chaic* io whirh canary birds figure, and whicl was cr "-trued by the ministers to be f us of gambling. It is said Judge S.*ott would Dot agree to bave tbis game die>:ontinoed, looking upon it at a harm? less device of amusement sufficiently ap pr prir.te to entertain visitors A thu*1 urged by the ministers was a-ainst the ??unusual exposure" witness el at the Filipino village, wbose in h ? 'ants ("lap'irt themselves in the i ? |tra natural to them. Again, it is said, t ?<?? cort overruled the ol j?ction, Judge refusing to interfere officially with the domestic wardrobe of the Filipino m'j'intaineers. A fourth objection wes a" ed at tbe "painted faces" of womer employed to stand in front of side show** ?rd amusement booths, and with tambo n i and song attract the attention of th passersby. The judicial mind o' Judge Scott is said to bave warned bin. ?gainst interference witb tbe toilet of wr ri.Rikin*'. People of the world will i naturally ask, Were these gentlemen compelled to visit the fair.' When tbe*, entered tbe gatea they doubtless saw what are features of all exposi? tions. Rbv. Cha*. A Akki>, pastor of the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church, New York, Sunday io the coor-j* of his sermon answered tbe charge of Rev. I). N. Carrick, of Lawrence, Kaufa-i, wbo recently said "all min? isters are liars" and "that it is impossible for a minister to succeed aid tell tho truth." Mr. Aked said an honest man is honest anywhere, and a minister of the gospel has fewer tempts ti MM tban any other man." Dr. Aked, however, agreed with Dr. Carrick In one matter?that is, tbst ministers are niggardly paid. Mr. Aked also said: "I believe tba' the prraent salary of everv r_ioi?'er of the gu?p*-l should be dinbled. Every? where the cst of living bas increased; everywhere prices are higher; only the salary ol the mini-ter remains tbe same. It is one of the first duties of the Cbristi.au Church to increase the salaries of ber ministers." Titi: R tl* ste not yet all subdued by t*. Bpat hi- I'would be astonishing if they were.

(Correvpondenos ot the Alexandria Gaiette.] Washington, Oct. 6 lo tbe absence of any explanation from Secretary Knox, it is bslieved in Wssbington today tbst Minister Crane may never nse his steamship ticket to the Orient. Everything binges npon tbe conference between the secretary of state and the prospective minister cn Saturday. Secretary Knox will arrive in Washington oo Friday sod Minister Crane will be here at the ssme time, ibis meeting will determine whether or not Minister Crane will carry his port? folio to Peking. It is freely sdmitted that probability lies io tbe direction of his remaining at home. There is no diplomatic situation, unless it is secreted io Secretary Knox's miod, wbicb woold provide sufficient ressoo for tbe bssty -nmmoos of Minister Crane across the c ntioent jost ss he wss abont to sail. On tbe other hand tbe smszlng frank? ness with whicb be bsa discussed tbe politicsl phases of the Oriental situation is undoubtedly embassassing to the administration. Even io case Secretary Knox merely chose to sdminister counsel on diplomatic propriety in public utterances, it is now tskeo to be doubt? ful thst Minister Orsne would be willing to start for his post under sucb evil auspices. Therefore, whether tbey will or no, itis possible tbst President Taft aod Secretary Knox will be ooliged to take up again their long quest for s suitable minister to the Imperial court wbicb, for a long time, seemed fruit? less until Mr. Crane was found. Minister Crane's reference to tbe nego? tiations for a portion of the Chinese loan aa "a new form of hold-up wbicb tbe State Department bas recently been engaged in forcing money oo China" is pointed out as a striking faux pas. Tbis was uttered in a speech io New York on September 20. Other equally pointed references to politicsl conditions in Russia and other countries are quite ss -fiking from the reserved point of view if diplomacy. As yet there ls no au horita'.ive announcement tbat Minister Crane is to be held up or tbat he is even to be chided for bis public speeches, and S ate Department officials retain tbeir imperturbable front in commenting on 'hecate. A satement from Secretary Knox will probably be forthcoming, however, as the premonitions of storm are too apparent to be ignored. Although tbe Monetary Commission, which is composed c* senators snd mem? bers of Congress with some outside ex? perts, bee fully decided to recommend tbe estsblisbment of s centrsl hank, it is quite certain that there will be no at tempt to secure legislation on tbis sob? ject at tbe coming session of Congnss Ii is even possible tbst nothing will be done in the mstUr daring the entire life of the present Congress which will ex? pire in March, 1911. Tbe earliest time, according to some authorities, st wbicb it would be possible to make sn earnest efl ill to push through a bill for the es? tablishment of the proposed bank will be in the first session of tbe 62_d Congress Having decided upon the general out? line of tbe bank wbicb it desires to eee estsblished, ss snnounced yester? day, the commission bas yet to work out many of its details. Sjme of ibe obvious ones are as to whether state banks should be allowed to subscribe to the stock of the Central lUnk on the same basis as to tbe ns tional banks, and whether it would be advisable to allow tbe general public also to take stock to a limited amonnt. There are many other questions involved bich it will lake time to work out, and it is more than likely tbst, wben the commission makes its preliminary report to Congress this winter, or early next spring, it will make only casual reference to Its hope of being able, st some future time, to present a carefully considered plan for tbe organization of a central bank of issue. Snator Aldrich, I'hairrnan of the commission, wants to have an extraordinary session of Congress called next year for tbe special purpose of considering this legislation, fiut the congresslonsl elections occur next fall and it is msnifestly impossible to hold sny special session prior to those elections. It is now Prof. Wilbur Wright, in structor of aviation in Uncle Sam's school for Signal Corps officers. Tbe Dayton sky pilot, Lt. Lsbm, who is to be bis first pupil; a detachment of en listed men from tbe Signals Corps, snd tbe seroplsne wbich the government hss purchased from ihe Wright brothers, all .noved oat to tbe aerodrome at College Park, Md., today. Wilbur announced that if wind conditions were favorable and the machine In good working order, he would probably make a practice flight or two thia afternoon. He figures that in a couple of weeks time be will be able to impart tbe requisite knowledge for guiding the aeroplane to the two officers selected for tbat purpose by the govern? ment. Lieut. Humphries will probably lake ihe place of Lieut. Foolois, wbo is now in Furope, ss one of the pupils. Two thousand packages of internal revenne stamps of all kinds were shipped v-sterday from the internal revenue bureau of the Treasury Department to he collectors throughout tbe country. Tbis is tbe largest shipment ever msde. The total weight was seventeen tons and every package was sent through the reg? istered mails. The value of the ?!smp< was between $7,000,000 and $8,000,OOO Beaidea the general improvement of bus? iness il is thought thst the unususl de? mand is in some degree occasioned by the tact that the tax on tobacoo, cigar? ettes and small cigars will be increased next July under the new tarifl law, snd the dealers are stocking np in anticipa? tion of that. "I am in sympathy with every word the president hss said as to the neces lily for ship subsidy, and with tbat movement as a whole, but I haven't any oatience with that class of individuals reho, in their advocacy of that pro tranirue, try to belittle tbe American aavy." Thu waa tbe caustic comment Dade today by Admiral Evans anent tbe peech yesterday at Cincinnati by ex Congressman Charles B Landis, wbere n tbe Indianian declared tbat "those American* wh ? are informed consider 'Ut navy a bluff," in the course of bis >iea for a merchant marine as s neces itv from wbich could be drawn tbe isilora for United Statea ships.

K*>n\ republican candidate for governor of Virginia, io a letter yesterday answered questions re? cently put to him by Henry Pearce At? kins, president of the Virginia Anti-sa? loon League. Mr. Atkins asked among other tbinga if Captain Kent favored tbe prin? ciple of local option nt the best method of handling the liquor queatioo; whether he would sign or veto a bill parsed by the legislature providing for state-wide prohibition wiibont previous instruc? tions from the people, or after instruc? tions from tbe people; whether be would sign or veto a measure passed by the legislature giving the people a right to vote on Ibe question of statewide pro bibitloo; whether he would vote dry or wet in ? local option election held io aoy community in wbich be might re? side. Captain Kent's letter to Mr. Atkins wss ss follows : "In reply to the questions aubmitted by you, as president of the Anti-saloon Leagoe of Virginia, I beg to say that I was nominated as tbe candidate of ibe republican party for go?eroor of Vir ginia on a declaration of principles set forth io its platform. The clause io that platform relating to the autjects of inquiry by you ia ss follows: " 'We favor tbe traditional republi? can doctrine of local option, counties aod cities to be the uoit in all elections to decide whether or not liquor shall be sold, and demand rigid regulation and strict enforcement of the laws.' "In accepting the republican nomina? tion, I accepted therewith the platform adopted by my party, and if elected goveroor, shall endeavor to carry out the policies aod pledges thereio cootaioed "I sm advised that at tbe last inset? ing of tbe Aoti-sahon League, of Vir? ginia, tbe league declared for the prin oiple of local option ss the best method of dealing with the lqaor traffic at pres? ent. It will be seen from the above qio tation from the republican platform tbst my party hss taken a position in ad vaoce of tbat adopted Dy your league in its lstest convention. Therefore, I with to inquire by wbal authority you prc pound tbe questions in your interroga? tions, wbicn sre at variance with the well-defined purpcses of tbe organiza? tion wbich you assume to represent in submitting tbe series of qutstions I re? ceived? I do not recogoiz-) your right in the cspacltiy of ao official of tbe Anti-saloon League of Virginia to cate? chise me as to temperance legislation other (bau that adopted aod advocated by yoar league as ao organizion. "In reference to tbe soggested legiila 1103, I beg to say tbat I am io favor of tbe proper regulation of the liquor traffic to the end that temperance may be promoted among t*ie people; snd I will ssy tbat in s gen ri way meets my spprovsl, and if the proposed laws were drafted and adopted by tbe legislature in the event of my election I would ap? prove them. "Ia coosideriog your interrogations, you must remember that I am not un? mindful of the tact tbat practically tbe entire executive committee of your or. ganixation is committed to tbe candi? dacy and support of my opponent. Such being the ta*e, I naturally regard witb suspicion tbe series of questions pro? pounded to me which are so openly st variance with the principles adopted by your organization in convention assem? bled "I desire to make the formal reqaeat that you publish, for the information of the rank and file of your organization tbroughoot tbe commonwealth, a list ol the members of your executive commit? tee, as shown on your printed letterhead who voted for my opponent in the recent democratic primsry, so that the people of Virginia may know whether or not you and those engaged witb you in sub? mitting tbeae questions are already ir? revocably committed to tbe support of the candidacy of my opponent. And if tbis should be true, I would like to inquire why you submit these interroga? tions when, no uistter what my soswer may be, it could not affect your action or vote in the coming election."
