His speech has had a good effect and stirred up considerable interest. TO CALL WITNESSES'. (CONTINUED FROil FIRST PAGE.) report. Then' several stirring: speeches were made by members commending the mission of the organization. L>r. J. N. Upshur, one of the speakers, proved a "live wire," -and rouseu the audience to applause by his spirited speech. He advocated the adoption of the Pollard resolution endorsing-.. the move ment for a Council investigation and in cidentally scoring those- who deprecated the participation of the organization in politics. It was altogether tho warmest speech of the evening, and at its con clusion the resolutions was adopted with but one' dissenting voice — Captain John A. Curtis's. Mr. John C. Freeman called the meet ing to order, there being about fifty per sons present. He recommended Mr. E. A. Catlin lor chairman and his recommend ation ■was. promptly accepted by the meet ing. The lirst thing called after the choice of Mr. W. Fred Richardson as secretary, was the report of the commit tee named to draft and report a constitu tion and by-laws. This was made by Mr. John Garland Pollard, one of the leading spirits in the organization. The report was printed in the Dispatch of Sunday and is therefore familiar to readers. It will be printed", together with the list of the committee of twenty-one citizens (for which it makes provision); in pamphlet form for distribu tion in soliciting members. This Execu tive Committee was reported to the meet ing by a special committee constituted for that function by the chairman and consisting of Messrs; John Garland Pol lard. A. L. Pleasants, R. L. Winston, Charles Lorraine, and James W. Gordon. COMMITTEE IN CHARGE. This committee reported, and the meet ing accepted without objection the fol lowing gentlemen, seventeen of whom had already consented to serve to constitute the Executive Committee in which the management and direction of the organi zation is vested: Messrs. E. A. Catlin, Joseph' Bryan, John L. Williams," Dr. H: 11. Levy, O. S. Morton, John A. Lancas ter. H. C. Ost<?rbind. W. C. Bentley, W. S. Copoland, C. W. Hardwicke, W. J. Kim l.'iough. Hill Montague. Daniel McCallum, H. K. Cottrell, S. K. McKee, Dr. W. S. Gordon, Alfred B. Williams, Robert Stiles, Dr. Stuart MoGuirc, Henry Lee Valentine, and Irving E. Campbell. AVhile the Committee on Nominations was absent. Dr. J. B. Hawthorne took the opportunity to make an earnest and em phatic disclaimer of the inference that in his sermon Sunday, lie had reference to Rev. R. P. Kerr. D. D., the inference in question having been embodied in -a headline in an afternoon paper. The dis claimer is printed elsewhere. After the Executive Committee: had been named Rev. Dr. Hawthorne, Mr. E. A. Catlin, and others spoke in commendation of the organization and its mission, pur poses, and power. Mr. Catlin then named as the perma nent committee to solicit members for the organization: Messrs. S. H. Hawes, John C. Freeman. George E. Wise, R. F. Petterson, and James D. Crump. Various gem.emen then spoke, outlining their conceptions of the mission, possi bilities, and proper procedure of the or ganization, and it was in the course of this general discussion that Dr. Upshur developed his live wire proclivities. COUNCIL MUST INVESTIGATE. Mr. John Garlano Pollard offered the following resolution: Whert.ts, the report of a recent grand jury charges members of the City Coun cil "with corrupt conduct, which though it may not be strictly and technically punishable by law. is yet reprehensible in the extreme; and. Whereas the Board of Aldermen has unanimously passed a resolution directing an investigation of said charges; and. Whereas, it is stated in the public press that an effort is -Lung made to defeat such resolution in the Common Council; therefore, be it Resolved, That the good name of our city requires a prompt and thorough in vestigation of said charges, and Resolved, That it is due the citizens of Richmond for their future guidance at the polls that they should be -informed^ as to which, if any, ,o v their public ser vants have been gu..ij r of betraying the trust conlidcd in i..e:n. OPPOSED THE RESOLUTION. Captain Joiin A. Curtis among others, took the floor in the discussion that en sued, and rather deprecated its passage and the participation of the organiza tion in politics: •'! do not think the reso lution of Mr. Pollard's is a proper, one to be passed by this meeting." said he. "When I came out here to-night, I had no idea that this organization was formed to mix in" politics and investigate the old City Council. The grand jury has already investigated that fully, fcnore fully, than the Council committee, without power to summon witnesses can cio. 1 favor voting for good men at elections, but think this organization should not mix up in iocal politics." After Captain Curtis had spoken some what more in detail along this line, Mr. 1 saac Diggs and . others . promptly took issue with him. "arid it was then that Dr. Upshur, who had sat quietly up to tl'.is time, took the rioor and aroused the audience by his vigorous and direct, lan guage in combatting the views of Captain Curtis. Referring to the statement of the lion of Marshall Ward, as some of Cap tain Curtis's friends call him, Dr. Upshur p-tid • "I" hopr. sir. that this meeting is not going to dabble in politics. I trust: it is going to do more; that it will stand for virtue, and for. business prosperity found ed on correct principles. There is no middle ground between right and wrong. I am not ashamed of Richmond, where I ha\V for years re sided. If it is possible for the English language to make that resolution (Mr. Pollard's) stronger, let us do it. We do not want to dabble in polities. We want to do our duty " as good citizens, and not allow public affairs to be run by pot-house politicians and ward' heelers." Dr. Upshur delivered his words w ; ith great spirit, and arousir.l the enthusiasm of his audience, who, it could readily be perceived, were in full sympathy with his utterances. CAPTAIN CURTIS'S DISCLAIMER. Captain Curtis was promptly .on the floor to respond to the spirited speech of Dr. Upshur. "I am as much in favor of good men in the Council as my friend. Dr. Upshur, or any man,'" said he; and after referring to his interest in public affairs since the war. and his service as a soldier in. the stress of battle, he added: "The way to accomplish anything is to go to the polls and vote, and not undertake to bring this movement into politics. The real trouble is that a great many good men will not allow the use of their names as candidates for the Coun cil and for other offices. Too many men who take part in politics want office." The speaker claimed that Dr. Upshur had misquoted him. using the words "dabble in politics." which he- did not- use. Pie was a sailor, he said, and had not had the opportunity to equip himself to ex press his thoughts with the nicety of his friend. Dr. Upshur.' "HIT SOMEBODY HARD." Dr. Upshur was up again as soon as Captain Curtis had taken his seat. "I think I must have hit somebody pretty hard.' said he, in his opening sentence. "I said nothing about ■ dirty ■ water, and I have no "apologies to make to any one for what I did say." The speaker hero In terjected a bit of his experience as a citi izen. "I have been urged to stand for the Council several times, but I have told my friends who have desired me to do so that I would only -upon the condition that I was not to spend money In secur ing election nor to invoke ; the aid of the ward politicians. Consequently, J have never been a candidate." In closing he -remarked that he would "indulge in no pyrotechnics about taking up a gun for the Confederacy." The question was called on the adoption of the Pollard resolution, and it prevailed on a viva voce vote, Captain Curtis being the only one to vote no. Chairman Catlin, with a twinkle in his eye. and with a suggestion of a chuckle in his voice, asked: "Is. a division called for?" The crowd saw the point and laughed. Captain Curtis joining in the laughter. Mr. John C. Freeman, too. In commend ing the movement, said: "I have not heard a epeech that. so convinced me of my duty to take a more active part in politics than that of Captain Curtis's." Messrs. Hill Montague tnd others spoke briefly, endorsing the work of the or ganization. DANVILLE AN EXAMPLE. Mr. Catlin. the chairman, spoke briefly in closing the meeting-. "It seems to be impossible," said he. "for a man to be elected in some p. n .r-> of the city without "• r ;-fn of" T>-irvy . 'Te then pointed" out the city of Danville.: his former home, as one in which the" people generally took an active interei- .;. politics, and espe cially in municij!\l affairs, and com mended that cit.\ and its government. Reverting to conditions in Richmond, he expressed the opinion that the good out numbered the bad among the citizens by five to one. and he urged his hearers to go to work to remedy local conditions. The mc-etinj then adjourned, and the ex ecutive committee held a session behind closed dooors. The chairman, had sug gested that in his experience with other and similar organizations it had been found best to work quietly, and not get Into the newspapers too much. There were present at the meeting about sixty persons, including several ministers, among them Revs. W. S. Campbell. M. Ashby Jones, Goodwin, and Dr. Hawthorne. ATLANTIC-COAST LINE DECLARES DIVIDEND.

Are Incklng-Dr. -i Stnart McGnlrcJn Home for Nurses. Kucsrer ironsc to Be Sold To-Day. . ; Richmond is growing to be a community of ; boarding. houses: They are springing into existence from every direction, like mushrooms, and no street can ; claim their absence. While these houses are excellent institutions so far as they go, and -many a -day of great happiness may be traced back to' the time when life's work was started in some back hall bed n.cm and the entire social horizon was eciifined to the circle of which the gentle l«rcd mistress was the centre; yet there is a. limit to their acknowledged useful ness, and there is a sweeter life beyond th.lr p-jrtals, known as home. When a bright, but struggling, young man or H-tmaii hac the freedom of a single ex istence the group about the festal board, genial in many boarding houses, has a peculiar charm' and is . far preferable to the; doleful' chamber and the lonely restau rant •dii'ner. The fascination- is not imaginary, but becomes set in* memory sojithat .few people to-day can- say that the is worthless. But when the money-maker gathers about himself a family tne conditions change so that he longs for some place whore there will be seclusion and rc tiremont: This longing for home, other wise known as the domestic instinct, is the very foundation of strong nations md has made this great country to-day what it is. Therefore, this tendency, once .sliovn in the young, should be developed, rot rota vfleu. but its growth cannot reach a-fruccessful culmination unless there be homos as a reward for industry. This city's population, especially that part embracing the young men thinking ot marriage, has strongly developed the characteristic alluded to, but these young illen labor often in vain as the homes are already filled and the boarding houses fast lllling. What the city needs most is homes for its young men. MR. COOPER'S VIEWS. Mr. Cooper, manager of the Real Esta'to Department of the Real Estate Trust Company/ said yesterday: "I am more and more convinced each day that what is most needed in Richmond is better accommodations, for less "money, for laboring: men, clerks, etc., who have to rent \ A contented man makes a good citizen and' vice versa, and every man to be content must have some place that for the time being at least he can call homo, and the more attractive this home, the better contented ' the man. and it follows, the better citizen he is. "More is the wonder to me. that a larger number of laboring men and others dd not spend more of their time in re aorts that have the appearance of pieas uie. and :i-ore of their earnings for drink, etc . than they do, considering the neg lected and tumbled-down appearance of what is all some of them can call home. "y/ou ask why is this so? Because no strictly first-class provisions have, been made in Richmond for this class of ton ants. Instead of a little tumbled-down frame shanty, built right on some unpav ed, unkept street, with the alley, if there happened to be an alley, full of old tin cans, trash, etc., if a man who can-af ford to pay only ?7. $S. or $10 per month, could be given a neat little cottage house, on a building line of not less, than twenty feet from the street, with a nice paling fence around his front yard painted white, ?:id a little grass and &ome flowers in summer, how different the surroundings would be. "Then, for those able to pay $12.50 to SIS per month, solid rows of brick could be buili, with nice little front yards; each r.''\v of, say eight or ten, could be heated by one central heating plant, one janitor looking- after several rows; then, in sura ri-er the janitor could mow the grass, koep the fences painted, and do any little repair work. In this way homes would be kept attractive and the general beauty cf cur city very much improved. "In my opinion there is no greater philanthropist than he who contributes to the comforts of home, and to the. work of instilling, into the minds of children the love of home. So if some of our monied men would build such places as I have mentioned, they would not only become public benefactors, but make a first-class investment besides. "Yes, we ara preparing to do some work altne this line, but for tne present our plans can not be given out." HOME FOR NURSES. Dr. Stuart McGuire has purchased from H. Seldon Taylor, real estate agent, the property, 1004 west Grace street, adjoin ing St. Luke's Hospital, and Will use this house as a temporary home for his nurses. The price .paid was §7,300. Some time ago Dr. McGuire bought the corner property across the street, 1001 west Grace street. This is the site upon which eventually the commodious and modern nurses' home will arise and be run in conjunction with St. Luke's. For finan cial reasons,' however, this building' will be delayed two years, 'but the house just purchased, will be utilized within sixty days, or so soon as possession can be secured. At the present time Dr. McGuire's hos pital is crowded. About eighteen or nine teen nurse's are now quartered on the third floor in rooms originally intended for patients. This new purchase, "However, -will great ly relieve the congestion, as it gives twelve additional rooms to which the en tire hospital corps will be transferred. GOSSIP ABOUT REALTY. McVeigh & Glinn, real estate brokers, to-day at 5 P.vM.', will offer for sale for William -..Rueger, executor, the residence of the late. Louis Rueger. at 515 north Sixth street. This is a- move towards the settlement of the Louis Rueger estate. . Captain Andrew Pizzini, it is said, has acquired the property couth of Broad street,- near the Soldiers' Home, to im prove and develop for certain persons to whom it belongs. Some years ago this land was bought by a private syndicate for JSOO an acre, but was never exploited and no building movement followed. There arose later, it is said, considerable dissatisfaction among the moneyed inter ests composing the syndicate, and in August last they sold the property at a considerable reduction, some parcels going as low as $135 an acre. While this new move is not a reorganization, the present owners are reported as desirous of bringing about some activity in .the section, and it is probable the ground will be divided into lots and offered to the public for building purposes. . : At tlie Y. 31.

JSOI.E TENANTS .OF AMPIUTHEATBE. VIRGINIA HUNTERS/ WANTED, Number ot TliemvTVlll Be Seen in the Great "Western Show iat Chic ' ago — Financial -;■'■ Success of the Richmond -Exhibition ; Greater Than Stated. ■Yesterday was .moving, day at the horse show amphitheatre. All the horses, traps, and accessories, have gone, . the great" building, lately a scene of brilliancy "and beauty, is now like some banquet hall deserted. Its lights are fled, its. garlands dead, and all the throng departed. Dark ness and silence are now almost the sole tenants of the great. structure, which so late was thronged by thousands. '■:'. Nearly all the exhibitors at the recent show have moved their horses, and rigs and have "taken them to Chicago, or to Lynchburg, and Richmonders will see the equine beauties no mere until next year. It is a foregone conclusion that there will be another show next year, and every year hereafter, certainly, so long as the exhibition proves the drawing card it now is, or was last week. . ■ EVEN BETTER THAN STATED. Later and more complete figures indi cate that the show Was more of a suc cess financially than was thought, the receipts from various sources generally exceeding rather than falling short of the .estimates made by the Dispatch Sunday. The bar receipts, it is now known, aggre gated $1,500, instead of $1,00*3, as stated. Secretary War then, -when seen by a re porter for the Dispatch yesterday, was feeling too unwell to talk, and asked to be excused until to-day. No official of the association deserves as much credit for the successful conduct of the show ■as Mr. Warthen, the secretary. In addition to handling- all the finances, he was ac-. tively engaged in getting out the cata logue, a task of no small magnitude, and was occupied much of his time in mak ing arrangements for the building of the new amphitheatre, taking care of the en tries, and providing for the advertise ment. He has been untiring in his ef forts to make the show the success that it has been. Manager C. W. Smith has been the controlling spirit in the detail conduct of the exhibitions' at the amphi theatre. His good judgment and tact have been effective on more than one occasion..whore conflict seemed imminent, land he has put the classes before the spectators with promptness, and fulfilled the promises of the catalogue. The other officials have contributed their, share of labor to the efforts of Messrs. Warthen and Smith, and the result has been a horse show that has reflected noticeable credit upon the local management and the spirit of sport in the city and State. VIRGINIA HUNTERS IN DEMAND. Many of the famous horses shown. here will be taken by their owners or exhibi tors direct from this city to Chicago to participate in the great horse show there, thus vindicating in part the statement heard during the exhibition here, that in the matter horse shows New York ranked first; Chicago second, then Rich mond. It is probable that even Chicago will not witness such a brilliant list of hunters and jumpers as were seen here, Virginia being the home- of the hunter. Among the norses that will go to Chicago are those of Mr. Courtland H. Smith, tlu Hampton Stock Farm string; Mr. R' ard AVallach's bunch; George W. ,' , Drcxel's great pair of prize-winn<_ Mr. J. B. McComb's beautiful > Lightfoot, the champion in the sauc. class, and one of the finest, animals ex hibited anywhere. One of Mr. Courtland Hi Smith's horses will go to Lynchburg, as will many of those exhibited here by others. .Wyeth & "West's Mountain View Farm teams and traps will go to Lynch burg, and the Dulany string, Mr. and Mrs. Allen Potts' prize-winners, and Mrs. Blair Johnston's Robin Adair, and many of the other fine horses shown here will be taken to the Hill City. Nothing but praise of the horse show is heard on every side. The few little unpleasant incidents will soon be forgot ten, and next year the prospect is that the show will be greater than ever be fore. : - . Considering the short time within which the 'structure had to go up, the coliseum or amphitheatre has proved admirably adapted to the use for which it was de signed, and filled every need. It can be seen, however, where it would have been advantageous to make a few changes, no tably in the enlargement of the space around the ring side. It was not antici pated that the throng would -be so great as to crowd the area between the boxes and the ring, but the people present ex ceeded the seating capacity, and there was nothing for them to do but to stand and nowhere else to stand. A wider prom enade, enabling persons to go more read ily from box to box, and to make the round of the sections without jostling would have been desirable. The space around the ring side might have been made slightly inclined, to advantage. Al together, however, the building. has proved admirably adapted to the needs with the single exception noted, and only expe rience could v have demonstrated, this. DEATHS.
