The Sandiiy liter ami the ; Stuulny

Cl"1»s" Are Cofn's-
Captain Hulce, with the aid of the courts.
Is making a dry Sunday section, of. Rich
mond out of the Second Precinct, and it
is quite likely that as long as he keeps
busy in that precinct" the Sunday beer and
the* Sunday julep will live only in the
memories of the eternally thirsty.
Tlie Captain has all.o/ fc\s gnen .working
full time. The negro" crap joints and
policy shops arc practically out of busi
ness,* and the Sunday liquor dealer is in
Jow spirits. Tlie gambling house proprie
tor lias retired, it is believed, permnnently
;rnm business there. Captain Hulcc has
.•(.•arranged the beats and : the precinct is
covered efficiently.
WILL RAISE THE PRICE.
The case secured by the police Sunday
against R; M. Turner was so strong that
that saloonkeeper pleaded guilty in the
Police Court yesterday and was lined ?75:
under the Stale law and 575 Under the
city ordinances. At. the same time,
'Squire Graves announced that the next
fine for liquor selling on Sunday would
bo $250 and the next ?50 more and so on
to the limit. ■
Turner had nothing to say. He just
forked out his money and peeled off the
joIJ ?1 54.75, the line and costs.
NO MORE CLUBS.
. If there l>c a "social club" open next
Sunday in the Ward Jackson or in other
part of the precinct it will do a strictly
dry business, for the policemen are after
these, Sohleif and a number of other
qompetent men went hunting for a club
Sunday afternoon and landed the Sixth
\irginia Social Club, where colored peo
ple were gathering, throwing ardent spirits
into their systems as fast as it could be
turned their way.
The following officers of the org:#n!za
tion were put in hoc: James G. Smith,
George W. Powell. James Smith, and Em
melt Faulkner. The v '•president" of the
organization declared when arrested that
the club, had been selling liquor on. Sun
days for four years.
The officers have one of the "guests" of
the club a prisoner. They did not want to
trust him with his freedom, and so he is
h."mc hold an the technical charge of
being a suspicious character. He will tes
tify that he Avas not a "member" but
got his liquor just the. same.. It looks as
if the "Sixth Virginia" is on the toboggan.
UP TO JUDGE WITT.
The licenses of Turner and of.Girolami
will both be revoked by Judge Witt. His
instructions to the liquor men about Sun
day selling were very positive. It is pro
bable that the men will not" even be given
;i cliance to argue in their own defence,
the conviction in the Police Court being
considered positive enough. Turner will
have the harder time of the. two, as. he
pleaded -ruiHy to keeping open on Sunday.
Next Sunday Iho Second Precinct will
be as dry as tinder, drier than the leaves
in a too warm autumn. t

On Oroyon Hill there arc no mansions,

TO RID THE STATE OF
ALLEGED GAMBLERS.
nistriet of Columbia Police <o Have
Aid from flic Governor"
of Virginia;
X.luch uneasiness is evidenced among
the proprietors of gambling resorts across
the river and the frequenters of their es
tablishments at the action of Judge Love,
of I'airfa.x. in failing to dismiss the grand
jury when the indictments were returned
against Nelson and Tighe on charges of
arson in having set fire to Sanderson &
Foster's establishment. It is believed that
■in continuing the session of the grand
jury until to-morrow the purpose is to
take immediate frction against the pro
prietors, of all such resorts in Alexandria
county in an eort to stajnp out- the evil
for all time and to clear the State's name
from a stigma inseparable from the 'pres
ent condition of lawlessness.
It is believed that indictments against
many of the proprietors of the gambling
dens will be returned to-morrow," and al
ready several of the interested parties
have disappeared from their usual haunts
with the purpose, it. is believed, of. re
maining away until tlie present agitation
dies out. This, has been the' practice In
the past. It is believed by many of the
offenders that by keeping away for a time
they will be able to reopen their establish
ments with safety in the course of a few
months. The Virginia authorities, how
ever, state that the time has arrived when
there will be no lagging in the pursuit of
these offenders,' and that th^ resorts. must
not only be closed, but must be kept,
closed.
In response to repeated complaints to
the Governor of Virginia from, the police
officials of the restrict of Columbia,- it is
understood that- Governor Montague, has
intimated that any assistance that may
be needed from the State will be forth
coming.—Washington Times.

recent and more liberal legislation upon
the subject has created an increase of
revenue, which will render the absolute
wiping out of a general State tax a pos
sibility of the near future. In other
%vords, a large tax has driven corpora
tions from., the State and, reduced our
revenue, while a small or liberal tax has
kept our corporations- at home,, thus re
ducing the general tax burden;
"The plan under our new Constitution
for the. taxation, of corporate privileges
and franchises upon' the taking out of the
charter or certificate, and afterwards, ap
pears to be both reasonable and wise.
"But time does not suffice for further
suggestions. ' ] < ■
"Now it is open to any of you to say
that 'this address, if such it may be call
ed,might as well have been made, to
an association of business-men as to an
association of lawyers. Admitting the cor
rectness of this observation, I might re
ply that in being made to this association
It has been made not only -to lawyers,
but to business r men, or to men acquaint
ed with business affairs>and methods, as
well. Every cultivated man is, or should
be, more than his business; and such is
usually found to be the case. ,
Praise for tlie Lawyers.
"Not only are "lawyers, by the require
ments of.' their, profession, interested in
the various departments of business in
the communities in "which they live, but
they are : also citizens of the . State,- and
usually public-spirited and patriotic citi
zens. What class in our .beloved old
State has striven more faithfully to meet
all the requirements of citizenship, and
to maintain and advance the- public weal
than the lawyers? Virginia, although com
partively poor, wears a crown of : glory—
a>:' crown' without a single stain? Henry
Clay (a native-born son of the Old .Do
minion),' 1 in one of his memorable speeches, 7
exclaimed: 'A- nation's glory is- the .sum
of its splendid deeds'; and, judged; by this
standard,- -Virginia's glory has been well
earned. Her annals from Colonial times
to the. present day are full of -splendid
deeds, , illustrated by the services- and
achievements of her many noble ..-■ sons.:
amongst them being not only one, .but a
number, as to each of : whom it may : bs
said that he is . ' ;
One of the few, the. immortal names, -
That were not born to die.
: "And amongst -these noble sons, what a
great proportion were lawyers! I shall
not undertake to call their, names; many
of; them are household words.'. . ,
"In no emergency or crisis; in -.politics
or war in which our proud old j Common
■Realth has been called on to take action
ho.s she ever proved unequal to: the-occa
sion. And as a class, the lawyers have
been always conspicuous in upholding her
hands and in maintaining her honor and
renown. L ," . *_.
The Attorneys Must liead.
-"And now. in the work-of recasting her,
legislation so as to adjust it to .the new

of providing more reliable and r efficient
agencies and- instrumentalities 7 for "the de- r .

State and to. enable her to make the most

"The Hebrew Psalmist, in contemplat

of his heart when he cried out:
"If I forget thee,. O Jerusalem, let my
right hand forget her cunning.
"If I do not remember thee, let my tongue
cleave to the roof of my. mouth; if I
prefer not Jerusalem to my chief joy.
"I am sure there is no son of our dear,

cannot apply these words to her with

RUMORS 'REGARDING THE
CONTINENTAL COMPANY.
President Dnla Declines to Confirm
- of Deny Reports Concernlos
OperutioiiM Here.
The air has been full of all sorts of
reports for the past few days, concerning
the plans of the Continental Tobacco
Company.. One report was almost positive
that the company would not .build on tne
Bowe-street lot, head of Clay street/ but
would occupy irie mammoth new bunding
of the American /Tobacco Company
on east Cary. street, which was supposed
ly." for the cigar branch of the business.
The. Whitlock' branch of the company
moved in a small part of the force, but
from some source an order was received
a day or two later, and the place was
vacated at once.' '.'-.'
The following special telegram from
New York was. received by the Dispacth
last night:, /
C. C. Dula, president of the Continental
Tobacco Company, refused to-lday
discuss the plan of that company as af
fecting Richmond, further than to say
that nothing had 'been settled definitely
regarding the proposed .-.'plant.-' When
asked whether or not the Continental
would use the new American Company's
buildingin Richmond, he said the question
was' not settled.
The" above ,is a reply/ to;,. a' .telegram
sent to headquarters, asking if the reports
published in the afternoon papers were
true. "None of the officials here know
anything. of the idea to abandon the Clay
and Bowe street property, and use the
American Cigar Company's new plant,
and it seems probable, « now that the
ground for the large building-" has : been
purchased,, that the. work will be begun
and completed according to plans.
