Third Market to Be Closed?Can
Be Made Into An
The sub-committee from tho Council
Committee on Markets mot last evening
and discussed tho Third Market, corner
J.luden and Cary Streets, and what dis?
position to make of it.
The figures furnished W tho auditor
and the cleric of tho market showed con?
clusively that as a market house, tho
Linden and Cary Street property Is a
failure, dnd the committee was not long
In reaching tho conclusion that It should
be closed. It was not so easy to arrive at
a conclusion a? to what. Is, host to do
With it afterwards.
It was shown to tho satisfaction of
the committee that with tho expenditure)
of flfteon or twenty thousand dollars tho
market house can bo made Into a, first
class armory. The committee also reach?
ed tho conclusion that with thu comple?
tion ot tho Jefferson Davis Momorlal
Arch and Auditorium and tho Jehor??n
Hotol Auditorium,'- Richmond will have
all tho hall room ? she will need for a
Ion? time to como.
Putting this and that together, tho sub
commlttoo decided that tho .tiling lo do is
'to recommend to tho full committee that
tho Third Market bo closed us a ui'irket
us soon as practicable, and that tho
building las thon remodelled- and made
into nil up-to-diilo armory and tho koys
turned over to tho Richmond Ught I?
fantry nines for their use, nnd this Is
what was dono.
The proposition that came -through a
real estate agency to rout the property
at ih&OO por annum was Bent on to the

amendment satisfactory to Judge Mann.
?i? practically .?minding tho death-knell
of the mushroom or f-.tko club, so-called,

lide organizations, slnco Tt removes the
necessity for placing them on a basis
with saloons, subject to all the laws reg?
ulating and restricting tho trafile la
whiskey, has; it Is believed, at last solved
the vexatious social club problem, which
lias been a thorn In the sido of tho Gen?
eral Assembly for several wooks.
Whether or not the Mann soclnl rlulj
biil. as thus amended, will be agreeable
In all Its parts to the "gentlemen's clubs."
the change suggested by Mr. Thomas so
far smoothed put the difficulties that tho
measure, which on the preceding eve?
ning had been referred to a special sub?
committee, was yesterday reported fa?
vorably In the Senate by the full Com?
mittee on Finance and Ranks. Tho pro?
vision requiring all social clubs of what?
ever sort to take out regular saloon
licenses Is retained. The objectlonntile
o?anse, setting; forth that tho clubs would
bo "entitled to all the privileges nnd sub?
ject to all the restrictions, conditions and
penalties" imposed upon saloons, Is
stricken out, nnd nt the end of the act
Is added the Thomas amendment,' as fol?
Provided that a certified list of the
members and the names of the offi?
cers of sucli clubs, lienevolont Insti?
tution, society or corporation bo fur?
nished to the Judge of the Circuit or
Corporation Court granting such li?
cense, and at the time such license Is
applied for, and provided further that
the Judge shall satisfy himself before
grunting such license that the char?
acter of such members is such thnt
in his judgment no harm will result
to the moral or material welfare of
tho community in which such club.
Ixmovolent Ini'Mtutlon. society or cor- .
porutlon is located; and be It further
provided that the judge shall liavo
full power to revoke such license
whenever- In his judgment tho moral
or material welfare of tho community
may render It desirable to revoke the
Dodged the Taxes.
The Importance of the amendmont may
be seen at a glance. Under the existing
I law nil clubs pay a per capita fee an
I their membership, the sum not In any
instance to exceed $360, and aro not
subject to tho statutory provisions gov?
erning saloons. Genuine social clubs,
with large rolls, paid a Hum equivalent
to the license tax on saloons. Tho mush?
room clubs presented lists containing a
bare sulliciency of names and paid on
these and no others, evading the license
tux and at tho samo time escaping tho.
saloon laws. To meet this movement
Judge, Maim proparod his amendment
requiring nil social clubs to take out tho
regular' lleonso and subjecting them all
to tho restrictions of tho general whis?
key laws. In doing this ho wns corn
polled, much to his own regret, fre?
quently expressed, to include tho "gen?
tlemen's clubs," slnco no distinctions
could be drawn under tlie law, It was
apparently tho only way to stamp out
the "fake" clubs. The bona fide clubs,
so far as could bo ascertained, did not
object to the payment of tho license tax,
which they now pay. as stated, but did
object to being lined up with saloons
and subjected to tho restrictions gov
?ernlng tho whiskey trafllc. Judge Mann
mudo an earnest appeal to thoso bona
? fide clubs to consent to forogo their
privileges "for tho sake of stamping out
one of tho greatest ?ovlls that has over
t appeared in this Commonwealth," and
! tho appeal mot with come response.
"Neither the Commonwealth nor the
Westmoreland Club of Richmond ap?
peared lit opposition to the bill," said
Judge ?Mann yesterday, "und I heartily
tippvoclato their attitude toward this
Nevertheless other cluJba did object,
and various expediences designed to ox

but without much effoct. It was propnse.l

suggested yet out of a very real-ami i>er

Tho House yesterday afternoon en?
grossed ono hundred and five bills, which
Is by far the best record made in either
branch during tho session. This means
all kinds of work for tho body, however,
and It will require much more time to
get them finally passed. It means one
hundred and five roll calls, and a long
and desultory sitting, if Indeed th.-.v

ends. As many as three sessions dully
