urc requirlng the increase of the saloon
llcense to $500 wlll be taken up. lt
was referred to the commlttee by the
Board of Aldermen at the last meeting.
It ls certaln that the committee wlll
recommend the ordlnance for adoptlon,
and there -wlll be llttle or no oppositlon
to it in tho Assefnbly and scarcely any
in the Board.
. The saloon men do not seem to be
taklng nny actlon in the matter what
ever. It is hlghly prpbable that the
number of bars wlll be llmlted, but lt
is not known whether thls clause will
be embodietl In the llcense ordinance
or in a separate measure.
The Flre Committee, the Flre Com
missloners and the Health Commlttee

The Virglnia Teachers" Bureau Is

teachers..It also furnlshos matrons and
hougekeepers for those who wlsh 'them.
The bureau has done much ln sup
plylng the' publlc schools of Virginia
wlth teachers, and It seems destlned
to flll a very important place ln the
educational system in the State. Dr.
Cridlln ls always ready to glve any
ald to those who may need Jils as
slstance, and havlng had twenty yearn
of t-uccessful experience as an educa?
tor in Virglnia, he ls well qunllfled for
thls work.
Seelng the great need of some agency
to supply the pastorlcss Baptlst
churches wlth sultable pastors and
pastors wlth churches. the Rov. Dr.
Cridlln organlzed-the Bureau of Infor
niatlon for the purpose of Introduclng
the pastors and churches.
Tlils Is thu only agency of the klnd
in the South, and has already met wlth
great favor and success. Dr, Cridlln
ha3 been an active mlnlste'i- in lhe
Baptlst denomination nearly half a
century. He hns recently aided in
locatlng several pastors, and others
