SOME FEAR REPUBLICANS

Thc Councll Commlttee on Grounds
and Bulldings, last night rejected a
proposltlon of lts own subcommlttee:
that janitors for; armories liercaftcr
be elected on noiriination of tlie com
mandlng ofllcer of tlie military as
signed to the a'rmory. The .subcom?
mlttee reported a resolution declaring
it to be the pollcy of the commlttee
that hereafter such custodians should
be nominated by thc ofticer.s command
lng and approved by the Buildlng In
Bpector. ?'*?' ? .;;,
Mr. JJcVh UeaVy opposcd, nioving that
the resolution be tabJed, as one that
might have dangerous political con
sequences if taken up at this time. 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. Mr. Spence niovctl to reject
tho report, which was adopted by a
vote of 5 to 4.
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.
Mr. Don Leavy amended it to $G5,
as roquested, and the substituto was

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

negro laborers. Coroncr Taylor saw

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.

tofore, the delay, the refusal and the
adverse feeling on the part of the wid?

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.
Some tlmo ago lt eamo to llght that
there was on record ln tho Chancery
Court what purportod to bo/an agree
mont betwcen i, o. Mlles and others
and the ciu- for the gradihg a'nd opcn
Ing of eer'.ain streets ln tlie 'Kast. End.
City Englticer Rolllng brought- lt to
the altontlon or the Street Co.mmitteo
after ho went into office, asking in
structlons, ;,a he said thc filling ot a
groat ravino from forty to sevenly
feet deep might entail great expense
on the city.
On Invesiigation it was found that
the allcgcd agrcement was never ap
proved by thc Commlttee on Streets
or the Council, and tlto commlttee
reconimeinicrl , ln lleti a compromise
payment of $2,500 to Mr. Milos for
sewer and roartwuy righis through hls
property.
ln thc irjiirse of tlie debato Mr.
Dyiieli made tho statement that the
alleged agreeinont had been reeorded
by the City Attorney.t Ho read to the
commlttee last night a letter from City

of my llfe," said Mr. Richmond la-st
nlght, "and my chlldren aro happy,
too. They agreed that lt Avas the prop?
er step. Mrs. Manchester is a line
Iady, slr, a fine lady, Indeed. and Avlth
her property and mine avc will have an
ample cstate for our chlldren. lt has
been remarkable how many have
urged the union. They saw the avI.i
do mof it, they plead for lt, and
they successfuliy upset the efforts of
some dlsgruntled people to block it. 1
ani A-ery happy, but really, you must
excue me from further comment noAA\
A man does not fancy the ldea of dis
cussing his Avedding affalrs, but I wlll
say that I am extremely glad that
Brother Dabney will perform the cerc
mony. lle has been a capltal match
maker and without his help l do not
believe that my sult would haA'e been
Avon. I Avould also marry Mlss Barton
Helghts exc.ept that I might be ar
rested as a. blgamlst."
The main reason thta prompt? me
to accept Mr. Richmond," said Mrs.
Chesterfleld-Manchester last nlght, "ls
the fact that Ave have got to haA"e one
or tAvo neAv brldges. I could not
bulld them alone. I haA-e been rather
happy over here, doing as I plcascd,
but my frlends urged me to accept,
and T shall, but. of course. there are
a feAV legal formallties to be complicd
AVith. The Leglslature very grnclously
gave us a special dispensatlon. I
think everythlng wlll bo "Toney," and
as the settlement Is agreeable. it
would he discourteous to break the
engagement on the evo of the Aved
dlng. Where will avp' spend the
honeymoon? Rlght at home. There
are bridges to be bullt, sewers to be
put in, streots to be Improved and a
thousand ono things Avhlch wlll be
possiblp hcreafter, tha'nks to the help
of Mr. Richmond. I am growing old
and my chlldren have managed my
alTairs wlth remarkable business
acumen, but Mr. Richmond's help ls

The .Avedding wlll be tho. most brll
llant soclal event of the Highland
Sprlngs.
structlons- Mr. Mlles has donlod to
members of tlie commlttee any knowl
edge of how tlie paper got on< record,
and the mystery seems to deepen wlth
each step tho committeo takes. Last
night Clerk Stratton reported- that hi>
records showed that tho Stroet Com?
mitteo met on Octobor 28, 1007, when
the pending agreemont was tabled or
passed by. On the 20th. tho next
morning at u o'clock, it was placod on
record In the Chaneery Court. Mr.
Stratton says he dldn't do it. , Mr.
Pollard s'ays he didn't. and Mr. Miles
saiys he didn't. ^
"Then who paid the wrlt tax?" ask
ed Mr, Dynch last night, and further
Inqulry brought out tho fact that tlie
city had paid the court fees, along
wlth some other property ptirehased
at tho tlme, tho voucher having been
charged to "courts and juries," and ap
proved by City Altornoy Pollard.
"Tho deed must Jiave been in my
possesslon with tho committoe papers
on the night of tho 2Sth," sald Mr.
'Stratton. "How dld lt.-' get to tho
Chaneery Clerk's office on tho 29th?
I didn't' fllo it, and 't desn't appear
that anybody from tho City Engineor's
ofllve filed it. as ? in that event our
vouchers would uhow payment of. tho
wrlt, tax."
Tho committeo allowed the matter
to go over to the next meeting, when
City Attorney Pollard and Mr. Mllaa

Dr. Amcs CommeRds Spirit of
Co-opcration Which Prcvails
in Richmond.
Opening his address before the
eighth annual meetlng-of the IUch
mond Instructive Vlslting N'urse As?
soclatlon at the Jefferson Hotel last
nlght. Dr. Joseph Ames, professor of
physlcs In .Johns Hopkins Unlverslty
and presldent of the Insiructlvc Visit
Ing Nurse Assoclatlon. of Baltlmore,
congratulated the local assoclatlon
and the clty on the splrlt of co-opera
tlon exlstlng bctAveen the nurses, the
Board of Hcaith and the department
of educatlon. ln thls rcspect, he sald
Ulchmond tvas far ahead of any other
clty he knew.
l)r. Ames took for his subject, "The
Future of the Vlslting Nurse," touch
ing on the hlstory of the assoclatlon
in the United States up to the present
tlme, and polnting out the many llnes
Avhich lle before ihe members of the
organlza.tlon.
One of the polnts made and cm
phaslzed Avas that a vlslting nurse had
to bo partlcularly gifted for the Avork;
that no amount of training in schools
could flt her for thls klnd of Avork
If sho had no natural turn, ln splte
of the fact that she mlght be ex
cellent nurse ln all other respects.
Hpeaklng of vlslting nurses In cases
of tuberculosls, he thought that they
should be provlded for by money ap
proprlated by the cltlcs and not out
of funds donated tu the asoclatlons
for charltable purposes.
.\ut?c n.i HiisliiesM l-'aclor.
ln alluding to the Importance ol
nurses from the vleAvpolnt of business
men, he explained the .xystem recenily
Inaugurated ln Baltimore by the In?
surance companles, by Avhlch they
employ nurses to look after persons
lnsured by them, thus decreaslng the
death rate and increasing the value
of thelr risks. He spokc of thls not
as a duty of the nurse ln dolng
phllanthroplc Avork, but to sIioav hoAv
extenslve the field of her usetulness
is.
ln thls connectlon Dr. Ames spoke
of tho recent action on the part of
many large factorles in placing a
nurse in charge ot tho hcaith of the
operatives, not only protectlng- the
employes but tho customers Avho
mlght contract diseases through buy
ing artlcles handled by laborers suf
fering from contagious diseases.
Chlef Health Offlcer E. C. Levy dls
cussed the Avork of the assoclatlon ln
thls clty, and especlally called atten
tlon to Avhat has been done by vlslting
nurses in decreaslng lnfant mortality.
He spoke of the good results obtalned
by tho school nurses, although this
branch has just been started ln Blch
mond. He sald that tho Board of
Health would continue to do every
thlng posslble to ald tho assoclatlon,
and ospressed the hope that the clty
would soon recognlze tho great mis
slon of the vlslting nurse and re
spond Avith gonorous approprlatlons.
George Bryan, who Avas selected to
presldo ovor the meetlng, read reports
of the offlcors of the assoclatlon, and
a call was mado asking every one to
remember that tho thlrd annual Tag
