LEW DID NOT SLEKJHE_OFFICE Chief Health Officer-Elect Will Make Sacrifice if He Accepts. WHERE RESPONSIBILITY LIES Dr. Ennion G., Williams Gives Out Statement Regarding Board and Dr, Levy. Dr. Ennion a. Williams, who was,, per? haps, moro than any. ono else, respon? sible for tho .now Health Department of Richmond, and who has taken tho,live? liest interest in tho success of the lately Inaugurated plan, gave out tho appended statement last night regarding tho new position of chief health aillcer add the election thoroto of Dr. 13, C. Levyt "I do not know whether or not-'Dr, Levy will accept tho appointment of chief .i.ealth officer. "Tho Investigating Committee that re? commended tho now system did not c"5h templato limiting tho appointment to Dr, A.ovy or any individual. They only designed that tho chiof health ofllcer should have had special training In, saiff tai-y work. "ur, Levy did not apply for the ofllco, jior did lie mako any effort to securo tno appointment, "Believing that if ho should bo olooted ho would have the co-operation of the board, and seeing In such a position a vast field of usefulness In tho prevention of suffering and misery In our com? munity, ho did agree to toko the place. "However, instead of the co-operation ho oxpected, tho member of tho board, Dr. Hoge, who nominated him, contrary to all precedent, Immediately began to disparage and belittle him publicly, Dr. Garcln, another member, stated nt tho same meeting that he only voted for Dr. Lovy because he was the best they could got for such a small salary, and limited as the.y were to residents and voters of Richmond. The action of theso doctors betray ' a decided animus against Dr, Levy. ' "It,ls greatly to be feared that th?se gen? tlemen, who were so largely identified with tho old Health Department, will really not co-operato with Dr, Levy or anybody else in making the now system as successful as It should be. Depends on Co-operation. "If Dr. Levy thinks h? will have the hearty co-operation and support of tho board, which Is essential to accomplish tho desired results, I believe he will ao cept the appointment. But ho is not will? ing to make.the financial sacrifice with tho probability, of havlny the handicap of a board, some members, of which are unfriendly,.and appiirontly unapproclative of their responsibilities. ' ,,? / .. .' i; "It will bo a decided/financial, sacrifice for him to take this office,, because I know he" now makes more than 1*3,000 a yrar from his present work, whereas the salary of chief health officer is only $2,500. "Tho demand for his services In prlva'e work is steadily increasing. These ser? vices are frequently Invaluable to tho communities that consult him. For In? stance, two years ago he was sent for to go to Vlrglllna, Va., to Investigate an epidemic of typhoid fover. Dr. Drewry, of that place, ?recently,* In' te'TThg me about it-:-; said that the:village-had never boon frea^'Of typhoid":ber?'re''Dr.'''Levy's visit. Since Uien not a case of typhoid fever had developed. "I firmly bejiove that, If Dr. Levy or a man of his ability and sanitary training be given hearty co-operation and sup? port by our Board of Health, typhaSJ fevor in our city will almost disappear, tuberculosis become rare, and half Che number of Infants that now dlo will be saved In a comparatively fow years. Where .Responsibility Lies. "The ,publlo should placq?clearly and directly tho, responsibility for any useless sacrifico of lives and tho. untold pain, mlserj" and poverty resulting from lack of appreciation and adoptio.il of modern sanitary methods. ? "If'Dr. Bevy does accept tho place, hU acceptance will be an act of flne_solf Bacrnlce, demanding, for him tho grati? tude and admiration of tho whole city. It will mean not only serious loss of In? come, but waiving of the natural resent? ment ho has the right. to feel against undeserved sneers, almost Insulting, and, furthermore, tho risk of failure which any man must take in assuming Impor? tant and ' delicate duties under the di? rection of those who have gone out of 'their way to announce their distrust of him, hostility to him, and disregard of his feelings, personal and professional." A Prosperous Town. Mr. J. H. Ogburn, of South Hill, Va? If at Murphy's, and Is enthusiastic over tho prosperity of his town, which Is quite a new one on the map?

IEI.DI.tllDK H Pastor of Centenary Methodist Church" Discusses. "Romance o? Divine Law." VICTORY FOR TRUTH AT LAST God's Plans Mature Slowly Be? cause They Are Great, but ?They Finally Prevail. Dr. W. J, Young, pastor of tho Cen? tenary Methodist Church, preached flist night on "Tho Dreyfus CnBe?A Romance of Divine Law." Tho minister said In part! . , "The long story, through twelve years, of tho man's trial, unjust cohdemnatlon, persecution and ultimate vindication, with many of thb attendant circumstances, tho confession of Bsterhazy, tho confession and suicido of Henry, the wreck of tho Brlsson ministry, reads very much llko a. romance, a romance which brlngd forcibly before us somo valuabla -lessons which center themselves in tho denial existence of an active and offectlvo moral law lu the hands of an eternal artd infi? nite God. Justice-'Is on tho throne-of tho universe, and must at last have Its wuy. Think of what stood up against It in this caso?the anti-Semitic fe611ng so intense in many parts of Europe, the hierarchy of the!"Churoh In France, the desire, to preserve the honor of theiarmy, ?the pow? erful leaders-in state -and in military circles, the traditions .of ' the land. But opposition to truth', and right-Is ;llke*try Ing to. dam Niagara ^raplchv God's- mills do indeed grind slowly,' because his plans are large, nnd.becauso humun wills, be? ing free, often delay His processes, even when these wills ultimately submit. Tho world . we live -In; is a righteous world, organized on tho side of Justice ' and truth. Must Obey the Law. "Note, too, how evidences of retribution ever attend those Who oppose God'B righteous rule. Tho law which, governs Is love, whether wo see Its operation In tho material or In tho moral world. Tho electric current is.klnd. ' Tho .laws which govern the movements of wilder aromado known to us through divine mercy,''and are at our service for'helpful'ends. -But how terrific both electricity' and water may be to those who- disobey- these laws. Even so in the history of .'nations, and of Individuals, again and again tho moral forces which have been such a large aid In building up every department of human Ufo and activity nave, when disobeyed, wreaked their vengeance on tho dls obecllont, 'Becauso I have called and yo refused, I also will laugh at your calam? ity and mock when your fear comoth.' "It Is a remarkable fact that men arise to carry out tho purposes of God's rule of righteousness; often men not looked for. So was it in the history of tho Drey? fus case. Even Cyrus, the Persian, was looked upon by the prophet as an agont In the hands - of Jonovah'to- fulfill .his promises to his children, ; Sometimes men condemn even themselves. So was it with Bsterhazy and Htenry. In the Gospels Peter weeps over, his denial of his Mas? ter, and Judas cries out, 'I have betrayed Innocent blood.' We are made In God's Image, and the Image is'still there, though stained, and so then .results the bounder recognition of righteousness and- the moral law. While here Is an Indication how dreadful Is an opposition to God's laws, If knowing them, we oppose them; here, ? too, Is another ground for. our conifidenco In tho -ultimate victory of right. -We are often disturbed when we see how slow tho whole process is. This man waits twelve, years lor his vindication, and. meanwhllo suffers untold agonies. Some men have died unappreciated and condemned unjustly. .What shall we say of this? Tho vindication will come, and this 11?B is a small part of our exlstenoe. Prom tho other world men will see the right conquering. Indeed, 'this is a very effective argument for A futuro life?a Ufo where Qod may rectify the Injustice of*" this. Besides, the man \vho suffers now may In this Ufo have tho sweet con? sciousness that he is right, and faith may see, as If prosont at tho moment, tho righting of every wrong. ? "Let it not be forgotten that the cro?s is a law as immountable and as uncon? querable as the laws thundered from Sinai. He who ?resists, the one Is as certain of punishment as bo who resists tho other. Heneo It Is-said--that the Gos? pel is not only a saver of life unto' life, but also In many cases a saver of death unto death. 'He that belleveth not-- is condemned already.' " . - . REMAINS AT HIS POST. Asserts Existence of Providence in Human Affairs. \ There was a small congregation at St. Paul s Church last evening. Rev. Mr. Forsyth, tho rector, conducted the ser? vice and announced that a mistake had been made in the public prints with ref? erence to his going away for"the summer and that he would be at his post "until further notice," He preached from the fourth chapter of the Gospel - according to St. John on Christ's meeting with~lho womnn of Samaria, bis text being "Come and see a rrrun who hath told me all that I ever did. Is not this the Christ?" His theme was the providential guiding of life; how no meeting of human beings is simply like that of "ships that pasB in tho night," but that as tho meeting of tho Saviour with the woman at the well ?was by design and not.by ohanco, to tho end that tho woman's soul and through that the souls of others might be touched with a knowledge of tho water of which if ono drlnketh he shall - never thirst again, so every meeting Is designed' In tho eternal purposes of God and-should b? made use of to His glory and for the advancement of His kingdom. The preacher urged on his hoarers tho re? sponsibility resting ?on those who have capability and means and the advantages of Christian training and environment, and called for active and earnest on deavor on their part to tho ond that all they might meet should feel tho In lluenco of the faith "onco delivered to the saints." Ho spoke informally and extemporaneously, delivering his address from the floor of the chancel and not from tho pulpit, but ho was impressive, as he is always, and eloquent as well. Mr. Forsyth also preachod a fine sermon nt tho morning service In St, Paul's, HOTEL ARRIVALS.'
