FRIDAY, .......... 14, 1902.
The Senate and House of Delegates have
come to a good understanding with one
another with regard to conforming the
statutes of the State to the new_Consti
tution. . ••
There Is to be no.-."sleerlng committee,
but Ac view of the House. has prevailed
nnd each article of the Constitution has
b-cn refciTcd to a -designated committee.
Under this joint -rule the Corporation
Commission article.' for instance, goes to-
Ihe committees on ?08ds. in connection
yith the -commlltees^on general laws.
And so; whp'n^th'cße^committees come to
,-cther in joint ecssion.. ihe asrgresnte nvm
ber of membere will- be very large. The
thing will amount to four committees
packed into one. But the cumbrcusness
of it racy be vastly relieved by the ap
pointment of sub-committees, and that
•hat expedient will fee adopted, we take
for srranted.
The plan of action agreed upon is, we
believe, similar to* that adop.- by the
legislature upor. which devolved the duty
of assimilating, so to speak, the statute
laws to the Constitution of IK.O-ISSI
The two houßes.haye" further developed
their plan of campaign for providing for
the appointment of- a joint committee to
deal with special, local, and private bills.
The General Assembly is now ready to
go to work. We suppose there will be a
daily session of one]-, house, but the really
laborious and difficult-task for some weeks
To coino will be in the committee rooms.
The better the work is done jn commit,
tee the more it- may be relied upon to
serve the purpose in view. ■ There, is not
a tyro in legislation who dots not know
that, and yet when a. committee makes
its report— no matter how faithfully it
has labored— if "may" possibly be in the
power of some outsider to point out a
defect po glaring as to. be recognized in
stantly ■> by" every one.
If It is true that M.-'PoWcdonostsen*. *>ic
procurator-general of the holy synod of
Russia, has resigned, there •is ground to
hope for more liberty; in the Empire. He is
ijy far the most reactionar" man cf pr->mi
nence in Russia, and his. malign influence
m that direction has been sadly illustrated
In the reign of: three Czars. To his success
in defeating certain proposed reforms
during the" reign of Alexander II was, and
with reason, attributed the conditions that
led to the laltcr's assassination, undit is
•undisputed that he was the evil genius
of Alexander. 111. in the matter of curb
ing that ruler's tendency to liberalism.
Also there appears no doubt that", he has
■ warped away from many good intentions
ih<j prcsont Czar. But for his implacable
and hide-i)«"un«l oppositi"«a to any departure
Jrcm .^Russian traditional autocratic
methods, i he Empire,- it- is believed, would
i.Vre'this have made decided advances to
ivards representative Eovernmcnt.
So far as the South is concerned, that
Booker Washington dining incident slicks
to President Roosevelt like the shirt of
Xcssup, Vind Is likely. to continue to. do so.
Mr. Roosevelt is scheduled to be present
«t a reception to be given at Memphis,
I'cnneKseo, in honor of the home-coming
l ng of i General I.uke E. Wright, vice
; governor, of the rhiiippines. and a special
Trcm that city says that the Washington
Sining, which created 1 intense indignation
there at'th'e time, ?till leaves? a bad taste—
?.ri excocdingly bad tasto-^ln the mouths
of the citizens. It lias again been brought
to the fore, and while the Memphis papers
bespeak a "hospitable ..welcome" for the
President. \\wy dwell significantly- upon
the fact that his vinlt "is in his official ca
pacity to do honor to the citizens of Mem
phis, and not as a private individual."
The special says that despite their hopes
to the contrary, those In charge of the
.details of the recf-ption privately express
the fear that some person might mar the
j anticipated good feeling of the occas'on;
also, that a leading lawyer and politician
: :'A national rt-putatlon, who has been a
life-long friend of General Wright and is
rhairman of one of the committees on
?/tntertaimncnt, publicly announces that he

We see nothing: iin the ulsnlfled pro
ceedings of i our State Supreme Court to
fcriris down the house. .'• ...'"•. ' ' \~'
Already several : bills have' been Intro-:
duced in the the Senate and House, witlv
the view of earning into effect the pro
vision of the State Constitution.' defining
how the limits of cities and towns may
be expanded or contracted. As most Dis
patch readers know, special legislation
on this subject .will not be allowed hcre
j after. General rules will bo iaid down in
a general law for proceedings of that char
actor, and it is probable that the Cir
cuit Court judges will be required to see
that the law is complied with. Senator
George?: Wayne Anderson and Delegates
! Baker and Gardiner.- and other members
have drafted bills embodying, their ideas
of what the new law should be. The sub
ject is one of vast importance, but hap
pily there is agood deal of literature on
the subject. Several other States have
I legislated along tnose lines.
I^et our legislative friends go on and
make the "general" law. -We'll need
it in the course of time, but perhaps not
.so quickly as some think. • For our own
part, we were disappointed by some of
ihe annexation projects of -the past, and
we trust we have learned something
from that experience.
Never ought Richmond to enter into:
negotiations with our suburban brethren
"until" we ourselves are pretty unani
mous as to what we want and what we
are willing to do in exchange for the
territory desired. It Is a cold, icy, fact
that hundreds of our own citizens arts
"opposed to the extension of the city's
limits. Pity 'tis that 'tis so. but so'tis.
it 'followsl therefore, that the first thing
for us to do is to get our own household
in * an. amiable and consenting mood be
fore-going forth ' to persuade the subur
banites to consent . to be annexed.
It is due to candor and neighborly feel
ing for us to say that "the only objec
tion" we hear in Richmond comes from
property owners in parts' of the : city
which have been neglected in the matter
of street improvements, as the aforesaid
property owners believe and avow.
The Dispatch is (and until the end is
effected ever, hopes to be) an annexation-,
ist, but the next time we go into an
annexation contest we hope to have the
satisfaction of knowing that \he people
of Richmond are as nearly as is possible
in "public matters a unit in favor of an
nexation. "Knowing" that, we can ap
proach ihe county people with good
heart. ..;> ■'-'■■? ■ ■■ ■•■ '
The latest trust is a saloftn trust, and
it developed out in Minnesota. In two.ad
joining -towns of -the! State there were for
merly six saloons," but a few wedks ago
the proprietors got together and conclud
ed two saloons— one in each town— could
supply all the drinks required by the peo
ple: also that, in addition to ?2,000 saved
in licenses, a great saving in rent, fuel,
labor, etc., could be effected.' Thereupon,
four of the saloons were closed. The six
proprietors will take turns in serving as
bar-keepers, thus dispensing with assist
ants; and it is estimated that as much
liquor will be sold in the two saloons as
was formerly sold in the six. There will be
be no bonus to a promoter, but- it is not
guaranteed that "wattred stock" will not
be sold: to investors. Many of the gone
ral public who are given to "taking a
nip" condemn the combination, because
they have to walk too far to gratify their
thirst. But the Prohibitionists are said
to approve it, claiming, as they do, that
seeing it is admitted that two saloons are
better than ssix, it follows that" no saloons
are better than two.
Tom Platt and Governor Odell agree
that '"a combination of circumstances"
is responsible for the small Republican
vote in New York city. This is a sort of
combine that is not objectionable.
It will soon cost too much for a per
son to get sick. A gigantic drug trust is

If; as we question not he is. City Attor
ney Pollard is correct in his opinion that
the law permits the sale by the municipal
authorities of sections in Shockoe Hill
Cemetery, in which there have been no
interments for twenty years, the law
should be repealed at once. It is an out
rageous law, . repugnant to the most sa
cred sentiment of our people and to the
spirit, at least, of traditional Virginia
legislation and decisions touching the
rights of families in the resting places of
their dead. •

Alan G. Mason has been the victim of a
dreadful -mistake upon the part of the
police authorities of Boston. There has
been a series of bloodthirsty murders or
attempts to murder in that city, and Mr.
Mason was arrested upon suspicion of be
ing the author "of them. He is a man of
excellent family, is a Harvard graduate,
and a man well-known in the community,
but has been mentally unbalanced at
His actions were so strange and his
explanations co unsatisfactory, that the
police caused him to be arrested., Then
he was soon released, but only to be re
;arrested. Day before yesterday he was
formally discharged at the request of the
prosecuting attorney, and everything
was done that the .officials could do to
express their regret at the occurrence.
The Boston Herald, while conceding
that in the rapid administration of justice
such mistakes^ will occur, says the mis
take in this case : was almost' without ex

THE NQVEMBEB 14, 1902^
: It' Is to' bc^hoped : that' the; orJjjinnco

l.'y . thr- ]jf 'int. xMJitr.?it«s; en"; clear -water

: iTlicre has been considerable diversity]
of opinion as to the"' beat ■method of fmanc-j
Ing Hhe 'scheme, arid In" thfs connection
some misapprehension' as to the ..fiscal
condition of the city has gotten .abroad.
There was no good ground for that mis-.
apprehension, and there is no reason why
the water improvement bonds should, not
find ready sale, and immediate" steps ..be
taken in the matter, of solving the clear
water problem, which has vexed the com
munity.for half , a. century, and/by- reason
of failure of Solution, has In ; late years
given Richmond an unenviable reputation
among outsiders, and whether justly or
unjustly, discredited her. beautifulness. ;
As to t ne ■wisdom, safety, arid sound
ness of the plan of financing the improve-:
ment, as detailed In the' joint ■committee's
recommendations, we. have no doubt. r
Whatever the merits of the- other plans"
tnat hau been suggested, it should be re
membered that' these were fully threshed
out, that the recommendations finally
decided upon have the sanction of Chair
man Gordon, of the^ Finance; Committee,
who has given the 'subject most careful
arid exhaustive study, and in whose judg
ment and conclusion^tpuching all (munici
pal fiscal, questions the tax-payers -haye 1
reason to place, most thorough confidence.
In view of the importance of the ■.im
provement— the crying- necessity for clear
water— the interest on the bonds, 3 1-2 per
cenL' will make but an insignificant de
mand on our revenues. .
So we say, with all, respect for the slight
opposition to, the recommendations, which
developed in the committee, that" we trust
ther will be no more higgling and pro
crastination- with regard to this matter,
but prompt endorsement of the commit
tee's sction, and consequent prompt inau
guration of the work, to be followed by a
vigorous prosecution of it to completion.
The Council could not make a better in
vestment for the city than by pursuing
that policy. •

The block front on the east side of Fifth
avenue, between Twenty-sixth and Twen
ty-seventh streets. New York, has been
bought by a group of capitalists who will
improve it with a twenty-story hotel. The
property, includes the site of the old
Hotel Brunswick, after which the new
hostelry will be. named. The site of the
proposed hotel measures 197 feet G inches
on the avenue, and 130 feet on each street.
It has c05t. 52,750,000, and $4,750,000. 1s to be
expended on the building.
It is the intention of the hotel company
to "acquire and manage a number of hotels
in the principal cities of the country, all
of. .the hotels to have the same name.
Who knows but they mayn't be willing to
come to Richmond and build a hotel here?
Roland B. Molineux's defence cost his
family $100,000. ' The State spent about
$300,000 trying; to convict him. At the
time .of his arrest the accused .was in
receipt of a salary of $75. per- month, and
was employed as a color maker. What
he is now going to do to earn a living
doth not appear, but his father. General
Molineux, is amply able; to take care of
him. . : .

Says the Springfield Republican: "The
various wars down in the revolution belt
seem to be subsiding. Hayti is pretty
quiet; in Colombia the insurgents have
lately been greatly reduced, and ,now our
Minister to Caracas reports that the war
in Venezuela is probably over. The world
after all may experience, an old slow
poke of a winter in which peace shall
reign everywhere." . .

We agree with the Charlottesville .Pro

Moreover, we are inclined to believe
that they. are kicking. against the pricks—

coast, as well- as' throughout the voyage."
This is Important, if true, and since It
comes from an official source there would
seem every reason to believe it is true.
But all the same, it is astonishing and
hard to grasp.

Lee District Street Car-Line.
To the Editor of the Dispatch:
I have read, with interest what has been
printed in your paper about the lack
of dwelling houses, and I have for some
Un.-e thought that one cause of the: trou
ble has been overlooked— l. c.. the lack of
street far accommodation, particularly In
Lee. District. Here we have an immense
territory encircled by. cars, but, as. a
rule.' v. ithout cars for about half a mile
?n one duection and about a mile, in the
other, that is. from Broad." to Main, and
from Harrison to the Boulevard. It seems
tr. '"me that building about the centre of
this district would be accelerated if it
were bisected. ;it least, by a car line,
sny through Meadow street, which bids
fair to become a leading thoroughfare.
There is already a little cluster of dwellings
there, and 1 feel convinced that streetc ar
accoinmoi.'ation would give a decided Im
petus t(. Juvther improvements. The city
cannot push its Improvements westward
fast enough, consequently property-own
ers out there have to wait, but a conven
ient- car. line.: would start them to work
and help things greatly. Experience has
shown that improvements always follow
the; trolleys., not precede them, and a
branch trolley through Meadow street or
thereabout would bring them. - - .■ C.

The .regular monthly .meetingnof the
Board of directors : of]: the Richmond
Chamber of Commerce was held yesterday
evening at 5 P. «M.; There were present
Mr. H L.: ; Cabell. president, | and Messrs.
R. T. Arrington, W.- A. , Crenshaw Marx
Gunst. W. W. Hardwicke, Linton O. Mil
ler, John Murphy, :W. I.O..Noltir.g,1 .O..Noltir.g,

The special. committee to consider anu
report some equitable ; plan for extending
the corporate limits of Richmond, through
Mr. Marx Gunst, submitted a report (ha c
they deemed it unnecessary to make any
recommendations especially applying to
Richmond, in view of the section of the
new' Constitution requiring that "The.Ger
erar Assembly shall provide by general
laws for the extension and the contrac
tion, from time to time, of the corporate
limits of cities and towns: and no special
act for such purpose shall be valid."
The suggesting; of / inviting representa
tives of commercial bodies in other cities
of- the Slate to -a conference upon this
question was also held in. abeyance when
.if -was ''learned. that f Hon." George Wayne
Anderson had Intended to offer a bill to
day in the Senate. of ;. Virginia relating to
this subject. - ■
Mr. W. A. Crenshaw called the attention
of the 'meeting -to the fact that on account
of the new Constitution, doubtless, certain
'consequential changes would, have to be
made in the charter, of the city of Rich
mond. The matter-was referred to the
Ohaml.-er's Committee on Legislation, with
the request that the.. committee. •confer
with the proper representatives of the
:ity 'government and the city delegation
in the General Assembly on the subject.
The chair called' the attention of tne
board to the fact that last spring the
"■l^niber, hnd nppointed a committee to
co-operate In the movement to secure a
new postofflce building for Richmond, and
that although much good 'work has I .-en
done at that time since then apparently
no progress has been made in the accom
plishment of thi3 most important subject.
Hs. therefore, suggested that 'correspon
dence be opened- v. f ith r Hon. John Lamb,
and the Senators from Virginia, to ascer
tain, as far as possible, the exact status
of the project, and what steps had best
be taken to expedite this important under
- A communication from.. Mr. Charles M.
Reeves, secretary Committee on Legisla
tion of the World's Fair, to be held at St.
j-iouis in 1904, requesting .the.. support of
the Chamber of- Commerce "to such legis
lation as will make it possible for Vir
ginia to have one of the most comprehen
sive exhibits that will be' made rby the
Southern States," was laid before the
board/ and after some discussion a resolu
tion was offered by Mr. . Crenshaw and
adopted by the board, to the effect that it
was the sense of the meeting that the
State of Virginia should :be properly re
presented and that the General Assembly
be duly memorialized upon the subject. '
The following new members were elect
Proposed by Mr. H. V L. Cabell, . Samuel

$30,000. to come, out of the 'budget for
19J3, and" to -formulate a report to make
to the , James River Committee for its
