thu futui'o of a market such as haa ox

ls nn ucknowledgod fact that many large
traders, somo of whom nro properly re
garded ns leaders ln Woll Stroct, havo
revorsed thelr posltlons and are now pro
dlcung a hlgher rango of prlces, It ls
but nntural that tho ostahllshmcnt of

commorclal prosporlty should attract buy

To have atterujited to contlnuo the
Hownward movement below the prlcos cs
tabllshed by tho unexpected declslon ln
the Northern Securitles cano would havo
Lceu Imposslble. Thoir Wall" Street expe
ric-nco taught them that a roactlon almost
lnvnrlnhly followg a uharp decllne such
an that of two weeks ago, hence the re
ennt upward tendency may be attrlbuted
ln large measure to short covorlng.
Tho permSsslon granted hy Judge San

thnt nt tho end of tha month the banks

Mrs. Atklnson Sells Her Lease
and Furniture?Wlll Begin
on Her Hotel Shortly.
Mrs. A. D. Atklnson, of tho Lexlngton
Hotel, has retlred temporarlly from the
hotel buslness. On yesterday she trans
ferrod hor unexplred lease of tho Lexlng
ton Hotel. all tho furnishlngs of that
hostclry and tho Loxlnglon Laundry to
Messrs. A. G. Spratley and J. L, Rod
woll, both of thla clty, for $20,000. Tho
negotlatlons wero conductfid by Messrs,
Shclton and Mooro.
Whon seen ln referenco to the matter
last nlght Mra. Atklnson said that tho
deal dld not rncan that ahe waa to retlre
from bualnees permanontly.
"Wo wlll appear before tho Flnance
Commlttee next -week," sho said, "and
lf we can como to eomo understandlng
eatlsfactory to us ln referenco to llcensen
and taxes, we will probably begln at
onco on the proposed new hotel at Nlnth
end Graco Streets.
"The only falr plan for hotel llcenslng,"
contlnued Mrs. Atklnson, "Is according
to the number of rooms. And the laws In
i t-ferenco to boarding-houses should, lt
asems to me, bo moro closely enforced.
and boardlng-housea should not bo al?
lowed to take in translents wlthout pay
ir.jr tho regular liotel llcense.
"If the Flnanco Commlttee showB no
dlsposition to encourage us to bulld or
ptmain ln Richmond, we wlll go else
where, whero taxes nre not bo hlgh."
The retlrement of Mrs. Atklnson, even
t f-iiiporarlly, from tho hotel busincBa ln
Richmond ls a notch in tho buslness hls
tcry of the clty. She held tho manago
ment of the old St. James notel, ln con
nectlon wlth her husband, for several
years, comlng here from Lynchburg,
where sho was also In the hotel buslness.
A number of years ago she took tho man
asrement of the Amerlcan itotcl, now the
Ixoclngton, and haa held lt constantly up
to thls time.
Mrs. Atklnson ls tho personlflcatlon of
enorgy, Industry and pluck. Her buslness
hours are from sunrlse to sunrlse, -.vhen
evar necessary. nnd she is as tireless as
a swallow on the wlng,
Uttle over a yenr ago she concelved
the Idea of erecting- a blg (lre-proof hotel,
andl with many obstacles In the way pyic
ceeeled In gettlng posnesslon of tho deslra
ble property at Nlnth and Grace Streets,
known as the St. Clalre Hotel lot, whlch
cost about $37,000. Plans wero uYawn for
the proposed hotel, but owlng to strikes
and hlgh prlces for materlols tlie propo?
sltlon wns ahandoned for the time.
Now lt comes to the front agaln, and
lt Ls qulte eertaln lf tho Councll trents
her klndly that Mrs. Atklnson wlll bulld

The new leflsen of the T^>xlngton wlll
