ARTILLERY LOSES FIRST SKIRMISH .(v.nttmt'd Krom Kirst Page.)_ ThTTolrift^for Incorrlgible girls, and lt now gocs to the Senate. The House also passed tho Adams fertllizer bill, Out locked horns with the Senate over j the pay ot a?8*rssors of real estate. Tho matter went to a conference com | mittee. . ln the Senate tho work was mostly of the roittlne varlety. The retlre ment fund bil). referring io i^chool teachers, mct with opposition. hut was pasjsod on Its second readlng. Tho Lasslter plan for formulatlng a sys? tem of tax reform got an unfitvorable report. Tho proposition to orect n monument to l'atrtck Henry was reported ravor nbly to the Houso.

After the Senate camo to order, Secretary Owon presented tbe flrst messarte of Governor Mann to that body.

An unfavorablQ report was attached to the I.assitcr blll for a scientitlc plun of taxatlon. Senator Folkos called up the joint resolution rcgardlng the changes to ho mado'ln the use of rooms In the Capltol, and by a vote of 26 to 2 the resolution wa.s passed. The ftnal asscnt of the Senato was givon lo the Ward bill allowing- sub missloh to the voters of Winchester of tho ciuestlon whether the city shall issue $12.".000 of "gravlty wator bonds."

The journal so showod. but many Senators were posltivo that the nmend ment had not been passed. Senator I'arks ln view of tbe mlsapprebension, ralsed no objeotlon to reconslderatton, which wlll take place later. Tho antl-football blll was passed over in ihe nbsonce of Senator Early. who Is to load thc flght for thc grid lron sport.

Ho was opposed on prlnclplo to-the bill. Dologato Danlel brought a message from tho House. statlng Its non-con eurrenco In tho amendment of tho blll rclatlvo to tbo pay of local assessors.

Morcover, h,. |)ro- l tcs'tcd agalnst thls sort of leglslation. ] lf lt werc eontinued In it few years the Stato wlll have a clvll pension I fund taklng thousands of dollara out I of the Stato Treasury. II,. thought ! his amendment worked no Injustice' upon tho teachers. Thoy had c'.tic ln wltli thelr oyes opon whon the blll wns first pnssed, and know what mlght napperi, Ho thought tlie addl tlonal money had better bo glven tci tho Confederate pension fund. Hc do clarod that ho would never vote to glve any penslons to persons In clvll llfe. Agreelng with Senator llolland, Sen? ator Parks sald that he was oppos>'d to tho blll. Tho orlglnal measure had contemplated the appropriation merely as a start. He knew of opposltion from many teachers at tho boglnning, but they werc afrald to protcst. "Tho way wo are golng on In reroronce to the Dcpartmentof Publlc lnstruction wlll result In our havlng in a few years an ollgarchy exerclslng thc arbl trary powers of thc Czar of Russia." bc sald, aftor commontlng on the fact that the amount subscribed by each teacher ls dockod from the pay of tho teacher before the teacher handlos the money. The whole propo? sition, lie said, was contrary to tho princlplffl of individual llberty. Confcdernte* I.lbernl. ln an oloquent reply. Senator Carter said: "I am a Confederate soldier. and I belleve every Confederate soldier ln Pappahannock would be wllllng to let thls amount deslred. for the teachers ho taken from his pension fund lf need be." The teachers have beon a power ful influenee for thc matorlal develop ment of the Stato and for thc conser vatlon of that whlch ls best ln Vir? glnia. "Det not Vlrsinia turn her back from them." By a vote of 25 to S the Holland amendment was kllled. Senator Parks wanted to amend tho law. provldlng that any ono with an Income of $300 should not receive a pension from thls fund. That would penallze thrlft, thought Senator Klng. Four-flfths or thls rund ls eontributed by the teachers, and they have a rlght to get back something. In reply, Senator Parks pointed out that the Confederate soldlers were not allowed penslons lf their income. wa* over %'oO per year. Senator Saunders answored thnt thore is a great diHerence. The Stato pays all of the pension fund for Con? federate votorans; tho teachers pay four-firths of their own pension fund, and '-ho Stato only one-flfth. Ho w.-irmly pralscd tlie teachers, and de? clared that nono had served thc Stato In a higher capacity than they. They had upbullded the Comrnonwealth just as much as any other set or publlc servants. Cuttlng ofr thls approria tion to tho teachers' fund would be a back step, and the State could well afford to take care or both thc Con? fedorato soldlers and to help out the teachers a llttle. Thc Parks amendment went down by a voto of 30 to 3. Senator Holland offered another amendment, provldlng that any teacher of thlrty years' servlco mlght avall himself of a small portion of the State's part of the retirement fund, but this was also voled down. The blll thon passed to its engrossment. On motion of Senator Strodc the Senate adjourned at 2:20 o'clock. HOUSE Governor Mann sent his flrst mes? sage to tbo House when that body began its sesslon yesterday, it being an ofticlal notificatlon of tho death ot Judge D. A. Grlmsley. of thc Nlnth Judlclal Circuit, Tho Commlttee on General Laws re? ported the West bill, maKlng a forty elght-pound bushel for corn meal, with a recommendatlon that it do not pass. The bill to crect a statuo to Patrlck Henry was favorably reorted from tho Commlttee an Flnance. A resolution offered : y Mr. Bc!l extending sympathy to the famlly of Judge Grlmsley, was adopted.

The Adams fertillzer bill came tir as unflnished buslness. Mr. Adams ex plaincd an addltlonal changc, in that whero a penalty is Imposed for short age and the purchaser eannot be founri thc amount shall be paid into thc Treasury of the State. Mr. West. of Nansemond, Indorsed the blll. Ho sald that an inspectoi was needed in every district. Mr. Dunn made an effectlve specch for tho blll. Ho said that if thc laboratory force Is not sufflclent tt examlno all the samples of fcrtlllzei sent to lt, It should be Increascd. Tht farmers need thls, he argued, and the clties and towns do not pay a copper Tf it be true that the farmer in tlu last analysis pays tbo fortillzer tax they do it wllllngly for protection. He sald that about 315,000 tons ol fertllizer wns sold in thls State. during Emulsifielll When the doctor says you must take Cod Liver Oil he means Emulsified Oil and not the crude oil which is very heavy and hard to digest. Scott's Emulsion is the world's standard prepa ration of Cod Liver Oil; it is very easily digested and im mediately absorbed, and will not upset the stomach like the crude or plain oil. .
