THEATRICAL MEN AND MAYOR OISAGREE Question of Construction of City Ordinance to be Settled in the Courts.v The misunderstanding between Mayor McCarthy and tho theatre managers con? tinues and when the case against the Academy of Music Is called in tho Police Court this morning, tho Mayor will con? tend that the managers have violated the ordinance by allowing' persons to stand In the foyer, the space Imm-dlately In rear of the orchestra and balcony seats. The managers, through their counsel, Mr. Allen O. Collins, will contend/ that the sdnse of the ordinance Is not to pro? hibit a reasonable number of persons from stand'tng in the foyer, but that a proper construction of tho law moans that persons may not stand or sit In the aisles of the theatres. Pending a settlement of the qucs Uon, however, tho managers will not al? low any one to stand in any part of either ot the theatres, and only persons holding coupon Uckets will be admitted. A conference was held yesterday af? ternoon at tho City Hall, with the Mayor. Manager Wells, Manager Rex, Chief H/ulce and Fire Commissioners Frlschkorn and Lecky present. The City Attornoy was asked to attend, but he declined, deeming It not the timo to give an opin? ion on the matter. No agreement was reached at the conf?rer ? ; Manager Wells said last nif:lit that It" would be suicidal In "him to "run up against the law." He said that the man? agement of both theatres desired to keep within the law? and -to provide all com? forts, conveniences and safety to the pa? trons of the theatres. If their construc? tion of tho ordinance In question Is a wrong one. they are perfectly willing and more than anxious to accept an?l abide by tho proper construction. "We want to do nothing but what is right." said Mr. Wells. "Our Interests He In this . city. Wo are tax-payers, and havo much at stake and It. would be ab surdfor. us to evade any of the laws. We cannot agree with the Mayor on the con? struction of the ordinance, but we will carry out his sugg???tioii pending a settle? ment, by the courts." There Is a case against the Bijou Thea? tre now pending in the Hustlng Court The. case against the Academy, If Justice Outchlleld decides with tho Mayor, will also bo uppealed. VIRGINIA BANKS.

Some confusion seems to exist aa to the requirements in relation to prepay? ment of poll taxes as ft qualification for voting in next year's election. ? It has been eroneously stated that yesterday was the last day on which poll taxes might be paid as a prequlsite to voting. Asa matter of fact, thero will bo no regular election In Richmond until tho Tuesday after the first Monday i) November,.. 190?. One may qualify him? self to vote by puylng his cpaltatlon tax any time up tp May, which is plx months before election, As prepayment of capitation tax at least six months ?before elections Is re? quired. It may be well to noto that a primary election for United States Sena? tor, Governor and other State officers will bo hold In tills State lu August or September next, and as tho Richmond primary Is a legolized one the poll tax must be -paid at least six months before that primary. This would require puy ment of poll tax before February or March. The only election held in the spring or early summer now are those for Mayor and Counollmen or Aldermen, which are In June of alternate yours. As these officials wore chosen this year, there will be no spring or summer elec? tion In this city In 1905, save the primary In August or September. COLLEGE GLEE CLUB.
