Mr. Spence objected to tabling it, saying that it should be killed outriglu. "It looks as lf we members of a commlttee of the City Council are to be dictated ;o by outsido partles," he eaid, "and that in the matter of tho selectlon of city employes. These mlll .tary offlcers might noininate some one who was not a citlzen of Rlchmond, and not even a Democrat." Mr. Don Leavy thought the regi mental officers should select their own Janitors, subject to tho approval of the commlttee, but agreed that this was an inappropriate tlme to go into the matter. Mr. Melton objected to belng placed in the attitudc ot re questlng anybody to rtomlnate city employes to the commlttee. Mr. Don Leavy said that the city had always followed that rule?that the present Rcgimcntal and ITowitzer Armory jan? itors were members of those com Ihands.

The subcommlttee recommended In lieu of the applicatlon of the City Hall janitors that their pay be raised from $55 to $6o a month, that it be fixed at $60.

Whlle supcrintending work at tho new municipal electric plant, near the old pumphouse yesterday, Danlel Halli han, an inspector for Uic city, fell ol'f a railroad trestle Into tlie c'aiial, and drowned before rescuers could reach hlm. His death was probably due to injuries sustalned when hls head struck a wooden beam, as the water was shallow, and if the laborers had been glven a cliance, he would liave been rescued. Mr. Hallihan stepped aslde to get out of the way of a ham] car, when ho lost hls balance. Dr. Davls, of this city ambulance, was summoned, but befor.e he reached the scene llfe was extinct.

OLDEST CITIZEN OF RICHMOND CELEBRATES 95TH BIRTHDAY Charles G. Eckcrt Still Halc and Hcarty, Walking Fivc Milcs a Day. HOPES TO REACH 100 YEARS Before Coming to Amcrica He Made Furniturc for Quccn ? Victoria's Palace. Charles G. Eckert, the oldest Ger man and probably the oldest cltizen of Richmond, eelebrated his nlnoty flfth blrthday yesterday. For ljls ngo, he is the youngest man ln the clty, havlng full possesslon of all his facultles. He can read AVlthout glaascs, usually Avalks flve or slx mlles a day, and can easlly keep strldo Avlth any man nf fifty. Havlng enjoyed good health all through llfe, due largely to the regular hablts of his race, he cxpocls to reacli tho cen tury mark, havlng stored up great strength and vlgor for his rlpo old age. Mndc rtoynl Furniture. Mr. Eckert Avas born ln the llttle vlllage ot Buckendorf, S'axony, Gcr many, on March 3, 1815. Avhere his yoiith was spent In vleAvlng the rccon strtictlon of Germany from tho rav age sof Napoleonlc Wars. He learned the trade ot cabinetmakcr, tourlng the contlnent as a .iourneyma.n. Avhlch was necessary in those days before ho could become a flnlshed Avorkman. He returned to Jlllan ln tlme to make the royal furniture for Qucen Vlctorla. Avho Avas then betrothed to Prlnce Albert of Saxe-Coburg. Doterminlng, however, to scek his fortuno ln tho golden West, Mr- Eckcrt took p&ssago for America on Scpteni ber 22, 1S50, arrlvlng ln New York on Dccember 1, after a stormy A'oyago of slxty-elght days. There, as In tho Fatherland, he folloived his trade, but after resldlng In Noav York two years, ho declded to movc South, arrlvlng In Richmond on May 27, 1852. SInco that tlme he has made seA-eral trlps to Ger? many, but as he said yesterday, "Ger? many is nlce, but there Is just ono Amcrica, and that ls the United States, and Virginia is the best of all." Voluntecred IIIh Servlcc*. After coming here Mr. Eckert fol lowed his trade. When tho War Be? tween the States began he A'olunteered. but because of his Avork was selectcd as a model-maker ln the Ordnance Department of the Confcderatc govern? ment, which posltlon he held until the close of tho war. Though a small man ln stature. Mr. Eckert Avas anxlous to go to the front, but his requcst was not granted. On several occaslons, however, ho went out wlth troops to repel the enemy, Avhlch Avas endeavorlng to attack the clty. "When peace was declarcd Mr. Eckert went back to his trade, sticking to lt until he retlred from actlve labor about elghteen years ago. He ls just as hale. and Just as hcarty as he was when he retlred. Older Than llr. Tnylor. S'peaklng last nlght of Mr. Eckert's blrthday, Dr. William II. Taylor said that he was satlsficd he was the oldest person In Richmond. "People hava been calling me old," said Dr. Taylor, "and yot Mr. Eckert is old enough to be my father. I think there is one splnster ln Richmond AA'ho is Mr. Eckert's senior, though it w-ould be dis courteous for me to mentlon her name. Therefore T shall put Mr. Eckert at the head of the class." Dr. Taylor thought, however, that slx mlles a day was too much of a Avalk for a man ninety-five years old. Mr. Eckert's frlends would be glad to hear from any citizens who bavo passed the nlnety-five-year mark. 10 MMT HERE License Is Refused, However, and Couple Will Leave for Washington To-Day. : Because there Avas nobody present to SAvear that Hazel Roanhorse is at liberty to marry Avhom she chooses, Deptily Clerk Breeden, of the Hust Ings Court, could not lssue a mar liagc certlficate yesterday, Avhen "Montaria" Jack Ray applled for the documents.

Formal announccment was made last night of the cngagemcnt of Wll? liam Byrd Rlchmond to Mrs. Chester ncld-Manchcster, a widow, resldlng on the south slde of James RIver. Al though there are a few minor dotails to be arrangcd, lt ls expected that the jeremony, which will bc performcd bj "Parson" Wllliam T. Dabney, will take place immedlatcly after Easter. Jlere tofore, the delay, the refusal and the adverse feeling on the part of the wid? ow to tho match ha3 been due to the uncertainty of the marriage settle ment, but this has now been arranged on a 30 per cent. basis for a porlod of flve years. Mayor Richardson wlll gtve hls formal sanctlon to the match wlthin the next week, after whlch tlie widow's childrcn wlll have soirje thlng to say. In view of tho llberal settlement it is not expected that se rlotts opposltlon will develop. Accordlng to the program, the bride will be glven away by Mayor Maurice. Ushers from thls city wlll be Harry R. Pollard, Jr? Col. Barton Hi Grundy, Morgan R. Mills and Wllliam H. Ad ams. John J Lyneh and Gralnun B. Hobson wlll hold the rlbbons, whllo C. E.

"This has Indeed been a proud day DEED FILED, BUT NOBODY COULD SOLVE BIG MYSTERY Thc Comtnitteo on Streets wants to know who placod the Mlles Ravine agrcement on record before it had been acceptcd by tlie city. The commlttee last. night withdrew lts rocommenda tion of a compromise payment. of $2,500 to Mr. Mlles and his assoclates, and wlll look deeper into,the matter at lts "next meeting.
