clidstcs for Congress from this district.
Mr. Flood opened with a speech of fort>
minutes, was followed by Colonel Lyons
for one hour and a half, and closed wiU.
a. short talk. The disfcuEsibri on one side
was along the line of protection.' sound
money, and a criticism of some of tht
provisions of the new Constitution, ana
on the other side a criticism of the pres
ent administration, high -tariff, and tht
utter helplessness of the powers that b<

to poverty and desperation by the monc..
kings of our land.
Tnc speeches were argumentative, and
the audience thoroughly enjoyed them.
There was no unpleasantness, and each

Home Mission Efforts Irgcd m the
operation along several important lir.es
of religious effort was reported at the
roncluding sessions to-day of the Ameri
can-Section of the Alliance of Reformed
Churches . holding toe Presbyterian sjys
The feature of the afternoon session was
the discussion of evangelistic work by
•lohn H. Converse, of this city, who re
cently gave $50,000 to the evangelistic com
mittee 01 the Presbyterian General Assem
bly, and Dr. J. Wilbur Chapman, former
ly of this city, who has resigned his
fharge in New York to devote his whole
time to evangelistic effort.
;'lt. is variously conceded." Mr. Converse ' [
faid. 'that from one-fourth to one-third;
r>f our population lives in the cities; That
Is' a proportion much larger than those
whom; we are to seek on our remote
frontier. In Xcw York, on the borough" of
Manhattan. 1 am informed that only j
percent, of the population belongs to
evangelistic churches, and in Brooklyn
inly 10 per cent. The time is coming when
borne mission work may with more pro
priety be done in our. cities than in the
remote territories of our country. "We
have Thost: right at our doors whom wo

universities have sprung up and outstrip
ped "t;s. and many .quasi public institutions
of learning', recently sprung up, have sur
passed us in patronage."
' Some Great ■ Voniijcer /Schools.
Among the universities mentioned which
have gone beyond the University in pros
perity and patronage, the speaker men
tioned with a statement of endowment and
number of students, Chicago. Northwest
ern. Cornell. Johns Ilcpkins. Vanderbilt.
and Leland-Stanford. He then gave sta
tistics of endowment and the number of
students of Princeton. Columbia. Pennsyl
vania. Yale, and Harvard, contrasting
them and their growth with, those of the
University of Virginia. "We ought- not
to be discouraged by these figures," said
Mr. Mass! e. "but; 1 believe we can 'take
our place alongside these institutions.
■These who have graduated from the
University do. not need to go elsewhere,
and our men who. do take places in the
front rank. The University of Virginia
has students from Massachusetts, Con
necticut. New. Jersey. Pennsylvania. Cali
fornia, and even from Porto Rico. If we
will only • bestir cu-selvcs to put our
University in the business rank along
with thesc'universities it. too, will advance
with greater strides." .
Severance from Stale.
At this point the speaker tentatively
suggeste i the severance of the University
from State ownership, which he regarded
is one of the greatest things it could do
and he quoted a legislator as to the will
nghess or the State to permit the sever
ance. f& . -
"Why ffe those other universities sc
prosperous?" asked Mr. Mrssie. "First.
Oec^use they have no political bandages,"
tnd in this connection he narrated tti':
experiences of Yale and -Harvard with
state patronage and their abandonment of
it. Both have been divorced from the
State. Tneir boards are elected by the
■Jumni and every year at commencement
the old students manifest their interest
by going back in great numbers.
"These resolutions are eminently pro
per, and I wish they could be made strong
"•r. What we need first is to be divorcee
from the State government; second, that
the alumni should on this occasion and
every other be given some voice in the
:iffairs of the institution."
Tlie Other Speakers.
Mr. Meredith commended the suggestion
of Dr. . Page as to the- co-operation and
jnion of the alumni associations for con
verted action in all matters affecting the
vrelfar? of the University,
Mr. Jackson Guy did not favor the di
vorce of the University from tho State
government. Ke was heartily in accord
however, : with the statements made b."
others as to the' value of the alumni, ant
paid a tribute to them for their part n
the restoration of tlie burned buildings
He regarded the esteem and loyalty oi
the alumni as the most valuable asset of
ihe University, and thought they shouk"
have a voice- in its control. He. suggested
that the committee of five provided fci
•n the Meredith resolution examine tlu
charters of other universities, with a viev
:o incorporating in that of the Virgin!'
"nstitution the best method of securin:
alumni participation in the control and
management of the school.
The resolutions were then adopted with'
out a dissenting voice., and the meeting a
moment later adjourned.
\n Ijnj>or<ant Principle of Lavr 13%
tabllshcfl In Favor of the "West
ern Uiiion Telegraph Co.
CHICAGO, October SS.-An important
principle of law was established to-day,
when Judges Jenkins. Grcsscup, Baker,
and Bunn, of the United States Court of
Appeals, handed down an opinion to the
effect that the Western Union Telegraph
Company had a right of property in the
news -which it gathers, and that such
right does not cease when the news : is.
published on the tickers rented to Its
patrons. In laying down this new prin
ciple, the Court of Appeals affirms two de
cisions of the lower court and forever en
joins -the National Telegraph News Com
pany, the Illinois Commission Company,
and other defendants from using the quo
tations in question.
The Court Fays:
"The business of the appellee is that
of a carrier of information. The gist of
its serv:ce to the patron is .that b"y such
carriage the patron acquires .knowledge
of the matter communicated earlier than
.those not thus served. The ticker v.ith
us printed tape, is an Implement or m.-ans
only to this commercial end. which the
patron, or the patrons" patron may urilize
to the end intended, but may not ap
propriate to some end not intended esne
aally if such appropriation -result in in-,
j jury to. or total- destruction, of the-sfr-'
I vice. In short, the. law beintj clearly in
adequate to that purpose.? equity siiould
see to it that the one who is served and
tae one who serves each gets who t the en
gagement between them calls for; and
that neither, to the injury of the other,'
shall approprinte more.
"The immediate busi-iesa of appellee!
brought to our attention, may n'nt :<rou c c
pqv «rrat folipitrdp. It relates to ti;e
gathering and distributing .->f news not
looked upon, perhaps, in nil quarters as
essential to the public welfare, but the
questions raised are of much wider signiti
cane<i. They involve,, among others, that
modern enterprise— one of the- distinctive
achievements of,, our day. which, com
bining the genius and the accumulations
of men. with the forces of electricity,
combs the earth's surface each day for

E. P. Murphy Annouhccß_ His /-In*
tcnUon to Fix Tbis Price Upon
Receipt of Ten Cars He Ilns Or
dered—A Defence of l.ocal Dealer*.
The cutting of .'coal prices by compete
■ tlve coal dealers has begun. E. P. Mur
phy,' the independent.-dealer, said laet ;
night "that he would seil splint lump at
S7.EO alton, which Is 50 x cents flower than ;
the price of the Coal; Dealers' Association.
When heJowers his' stock. at this figure,
he ciaims he will drop his Gelling price
• to 57 a ton ; if there is no change in the
present wholesale market. He told a
representative- of tho Dispatch that it
wns his policy to keep close to the peo
' pie; -and that he" would mr^ntain' that
principle, even at a' personal,, loss.: Mr.
Murphy said, further.' that he had pur
chased ten cars of 'anthracite, to be
shipped from the mines on Thursday of
this week, and if. there" was no delay in
the railroad furnishing the necessary cars,
he would have some hnrd coal here Within
a very short time. This coal, according
to Mr. Murphy, will cost $7.40 a ton de
livered here, but he will cell out at $S.EO a
ton. giving each customer two. tons at
a time, making the deliveries direct from
the cars.
There is little change in the wholesale
•?oal situation.,. The price of splint : lump
■md steam remains about the same, each
hovering -about $5 a ton, wholesale, on
the tracks in Richmond.' According to.
sales agent John S. Lear, however, therr
is not enough coal being sold now to maKi;
1 market.. While the receipts -arc . more
liberal, the ccal is being applied on back
orders which were • taken : come time
go. "Last Friday," said ' Mr. Lear, "the^
;hesapeake and Ohio railroad loaded in
he-New River District 313 cars, and in
no Kanawha District 63 3 cars. Monday
he loading In. New River leil off 230 cars,
vhile the Kanawha District loaded 72."

insatisfactory conditions :■'. along New
iiiver, while the increase in the Kanawha
!>istrict may be due to the starting up.

The story'printed in an afternoon paper
hat no relief from Uhe anthracite short
ge was in sight .for weeks, and ttiat. no
liardfco'al orders for- Richmond are be
'ng accepted, .; is in direct conflict with
he statement of a representative of a
Philadelphia hard-coal firm, who'said that
isny orders for the precious mineral
ari been placed by local dealers with him
his week. ■ . ■■:"■•
A communication has been received by
he Dispatch from John S. Lear, repre
sentative of well-known operators,' which
' ••n-^^'<r. ?n ' 1 j-o^rr-l "way. to defend'
the retail dealer from -the charge of ex
: ,'.uv:i i.aui btiliiig LO.H 10 "tile public;
he gentleman writing said distinctly to
-. press 'representative that it was ..not
lis desire. to. controvert anything that has
ppeared in the public prints. His idea
.-as. however, to allay somewhat the pri
-ately expressed indignation which has
rbwn generally against the coal deal
rs. It is useless, according to the writer,
or " persons not familiar with the dp
ails, to say they should be jailed, as the
cal dealers have dealt very liberally
?ith the public, particularly in selling out
lieJr- stock of anthracite. -
While more than one wholesale dealer is
eputed to have sold no splint coal on
iiis market at a price higher than SI.CO
t.the mines, Mr. Lear may be the ex
3ption, and his letter is printed in full,
3 follows:
,'o the- Editor of the Dispatch:
There has. recently been a good deal
if adverse criticism of the coal dealers in'
i:r city, relative to the prices which the\
•aye been charging ror coal, and some
avi? gone.so far as to charge them with
eing a set of extortioners.
As an agent for the operators, or
lines, and thus occupying a position be
ind the scenes, where I could fairl>
udge.of such matters, I have deemed it
nit a matter of simple justice to give
ome facts which may, in a measure, set
h.fse gentlemen in a just and more fa
orable-light before the general public.
Vn'd just here I will say that there
s no class of business in this or any other
ommunity .which, is worked on. a small
er-average profit than tnat of coal, and 1
mphasize this, in applying my statement
0 the period existing during the pres
nt year, while the strike has been in
• irogress. >
As a further evidence of the truth of
ny .statement, I venture the assertion
liat the balance sheets of the dealers
■ '.ere. as well as those of the mines, on
ho line of the Chesapeake and Ohio rail
vhv, from which most of . our supplic-£
f soft coal are drawn, will show, a small
:r amount on the credit side. of the ledger
han for many years past.
A great many people do not stop to.
onside-r the fact that the coal dealer is
ilways at a heavy expense of maintain
ing his plant, having his teams to feed,
i-ppalrs to wagons and <arts to pay. for,
lis offlce and yard rents : 'to ■ meet, . hfu
•Icrk and labor hire, and ail other inci
jentals to pay just the same when there
:s but little doing as when he is busy.
Nor-has there been an advance at any.
I time during tho past five months in th«
->rico of coal which was not fully justi
fied by *the prices. which/ the dealens v/ere
fort:ed' to pay. - ' '' • ■ - • -
The day before the retail price of do
nesiic ccial reached its climax- of ?9 per
ton: the dealers were paying for it $6 at
t.he mines, or $7.55 delivered here. Sure
ly 15 per cent."; gross' is not an unreason
able profit to make oh. an article, even
Lhough It were in active demand.
It is . proper to say ' that bituminous
coal is always sold here by -the net ton
of- 2,000. .'pounds,, ."and that the dealer in
curs' considerable loss in actual shrinkage
and in the; reduced price of fine coal or
slacli, a considerable quantity of which
is found, even, in the best quality' of
Jump c0a1. .: ■ :. -
1 will say "nothing of the operators ' of
the mines,- except to call attention to
the fact that to close 1 down any kind ol
mining or manufacturing plant is always .
attendant with heavy : less; nor .will the
total profit which has accrued to the ave
rage operator during this . strike; be mbre
than will he necessary . to put Jhis ma- -
-hinery'and plant in^the same condition
is 'when the. strikers Vent out:- \V
. ! The market, at pi-esent. is-in an:unset

in the : confidt nt oelicf - that/ they/ will re- :
:li:ce prices just as: 'fast, and to as low a
level, as conditions will justify.^ ■/ ,-. ; ',.
I have never had "any connection with
tho anthracite trade, .but I am : prepared
to state knowingly that the. price. of that
article , was kept at $'3 per/ ton here long
after it had- advanced tO: a much, higher
figure in other [markets,' a iid : the bulk of .

.however, and found that a heavy rain had
made" it well nigh impossible to go over
the ground and inspect the various plots,
so they returned to Richmond on ah early
.train, and reported the conditions to the
members who had assembled here, ready
to leave on the 10:15 A. M. train. Mr.
Leech, however, had not come byway of
Richmond, so he reached the farm, only
to find that all of his fellow memoer?
were in Richmond;' He took the neict
train to this city, and upon meeting tho
members, declared that he was the. only.
one of them who had. carried out th»»
original instructions : to mw at the test
farm. He went.- but found that he couifi
not hold a meeting by himself." •'

farm committee, submitted his i-eport.-m
