But for the bravery of two colored men?George Palmer and John Robin? son?Joe Armbreclit, foreman for I. J.

The trouble waa oaused by Lewls Bolden, one of tha negro drlvers. sald to have been drunk at thn tlme, who before he flnlslied had fomented a disturbance whlch might havo ended ln the death of three men before ihe arrlval of a squad of police. who were sent from the Second Station in answer to the riot jCall.

Armbreclit was superlntending the srrading of a block in Washington Street. for whlch I. J. Smlth and Com? pany had secured the contract. Bolden, it is alleged, arrived on tlio scene drunk, and Immedlately started a row. Ho was ordered twice by the foreman to go home, but rofused. threatenlng to klll Armbreclit if he lnterfered. He Insisted on loading lils wagon ln Ihe cut, but the foreman forclbly relloved him of it, and drove it to the dunip hlmself. When hc returned, Bolden was ln the cut. belaborlng an old neuro, Andrcw Massey, wlth a club. Armbreclit struck him twice with a short uhovel he held in lils hand, but the negro crowded hlm so closely that he was unable to rai_c it a third time, and had to run. Bolden, desperately angry now, from the blows he had recelved, pursued the foreman, and on the opposite slde ol the street knocked hlm ln the back >.f the head. Armbreclit falling to thv Butter. Bolden pounced on hlm, pum meled hlm about the head antl face and then drew a knife to cut th. throat-of the prostrate man. Lyoni also run up. and struck Armbrecht wltl a stick.

W. R. L, Smith Taken to Hospital. HAD NOT BEEN VACCINATED House Is Fumigated and Placard ed by Officials of Health Board. l.evlval servlces at tho Second Bap? tlst Church, announcctl to begln last nlghts have been Indeflnltely post poned becauso of a case of vlrulent smallpox In the household of the pas? tor, Rev. \V. lt. L. Smlth, D. D., who Ilves at 801 West tlracc Ktreet. The case is tliat of Rosa I'itt, flfty years old, a colored house servnnt, who came hero from Norfolk on Saturday, March 6, nine days bet'oro tho dlseaso de? veloped. Tho woman slckened on Sat urday, and a phyalcian was called In. By yesterday morning a well-developed case of confluent smallpox was evident, and it wns reported at once to tlio otliclals of the Board of Health, who acted wlth the greatest promptness, retnovlng the woman to the smallpox hospital, funiigating the house, and directing a general vacaination In the nelghborhood. The Board of Health of Richmond wlll take the matter up at once with) the Board of Health of Norfolk to ascertnln the antecedents of tho wo? man.' The perlod of contagion belng from twelve to fourtcen days, It Is evident tliat tho woman contracted tbe dlseaso in Norfolk, aud tho Norfolk autliorltles may be asked by the State Board of Health to account for her having been allowed to leavo that city In au Infected condition. ilrsi ln Nine lioniii i. The case ls tho flrst in nine months ln Richmond, tlie city smallpox hos pllal in Henrlco county having been closed slnce early in June, 1908. As nearly Invariably happens In such cases, the woman was found never to have been successfully vaccl nated. Reports of the case spreail rapidly yesterday. and much apprehension ex Isted among members of the congre? gation of the Second Baptlst Church who had attended the usual servlces on Sunday. These apprehenslons, how? ever, wero set at rest last nlght by Dr. E. C. Levy. Chief Health Offlcer, who, when questioned as to thls aspect of the case, said that all of the mem? bers of the household except an infant had been vacclnated, and tliat lt was not at all llkely that the dlsease could be carrled by any persons who could not tliemselves tuke lt. Out of defor ence to publlc sentiment, however, tlie revlval servlces announeed for each night thls week have been abandoned. The house has been thoroughly . fumlgated, and the child, who was at once vacclnated, wlll bo kept under | observatlon for several days. The ? houae has been placaded as requlred by city ordinance, but the health offl ' clals said it would not be necessary to keep the members of the family Ini strlct qua'rantlne if all ordinary pre cautioiis are observed. If there aro no further develop? ments. lt Is belleved that the pastor wlll bo allowed to contlnue to hold church servlces as usual?after a few days have elapsed. General Vacelnntlon. Health Board doctors wlll invade tho nelghborhood this morning and vaccl nate generally for several blocks around, especially among the colored servants wlth whom the woman may have come In contact. "The Board of Health has issued repeated warnlngs," sald Dr. Levy last nlght, "against persons employlng household servtints untll satlsfled that they have been successfully vacclnated. If theso warnlngs contlnue to be dls regurded wc cannot guarantee against a spread of the dlsease at any time. The warnlngs havo been sent repeat edly to employers of servants and to factories and places employlng large j numbers of people. Any person not. able to afford the cost of vaccinatlon may recelve treatment free any day by applylng at -the Clty Hail between! 9 and 10 A. M.. when physicians of tlie ] Board of Health will be in attendance. I cannot too strongly advise all per? sons not only to be vacclnated tliem? selves. but also to see that servants ln their employ and those wlth whom they are associated take proper pre caution. The case was at once re? ported to me by Dr. Foster and Dr. West. who made the InvesUgatlon. T do not seo any reason for apprehen? sion on the part of those who attended Dr. Smlth's church on Sunday." I-'ell from Street Car. Mra. Maura White, of 1435 Eaat Main Klreet. fell from a clay Stroet car opposlte 1430 East Maln Street yesterday morning, and was palnfully Injured. She was at tondccl by Dr. Bell, of the clty anibulanoe staff, who removed her to her boardiny housc. where she waa made comtortable.

The com? mltteo considered lt practleally ini posslble to complete tho municlpal electric plant wltli lines of poles and wlres before next spring, the contract not as yet having been awarded, and therefore recommended the contir.ua tton of the present contract for street llghtlug for one year from July 1, the four negatlve votes helng Messrs Hobson, Mltchell, Powers and Rogers.
