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.
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.

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
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
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
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
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
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

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

But when the money-maker gathers
about himself a family tne conditions

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
"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
"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
At the present time Dr. McGuire's hos
pital is crowded. About eighteen or nine

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. . :

Richmond -Exhibition ; Greater
■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.

Two years ago I began to
suffer with dyspepsia and in
digestion. I tried several rem
edies and spent considerable ,
money, but with indifferent
success. My attention was]
finally called to Ripans Tab
ules. I did not put, much faith
in them, but to my surprise I
found that they did me good,
and after using eight boxes I
was cured. •
The Five-cent packet is enough for au ordi

contains a supply for a year.
