ECLIPSE LAUNDRY. , MET HOUSE IS I0W PROPOSED Councilman Rogers Plans Park on Site of Old Unsanitary Building. The Council Committee on Markets recommended last night that the Finance Committee make provision In the annual budget for a new building for the First Market, to cost from $30,000 to $35,000, to be erected on the old Seebrook Warehouse lot on Grace Street, from Seventeenth to Eighteenth. It is claimed that the Old Market build? ings are unsanitary, unsightly and. in part at least, In dilapidated, tf not dan? gerous condition; that tho cost of an- , nual repairs and maintenance is exces? sive, nnd that tho building is altogether unsuHed to the sale of hcalthf food? stuff. The revenue from rent of stalls last year exceeded $8,500, so the com? mittee argued that an adequate market house would be a good Investment. Chairman Rogers ,of the subcommit? tee, otitlined his plan for removing Old Market buildings from Grace to Main Streets and opening up a grass plot through between Seventeenth and West Seventeenth Streets, a sec? tion of the city In need of a breathing space and park. It has become the heart of the foreign quarter, and the surrounding cross streets are congested to a greater ex? tent than any section of Rich? mond. m The Market Committee also proposed the installation of a cold storage plant at the Second Market, to cost about $10.000. ? Some years ago the old First Market building at Seventeenth and Main Streets was condemned. There was at that time a large public hall on the second floor, which ban been the scene of many of the most 'notable political gatherings of by-gone days, and it was there that a remarkable series of revival services were conducted by Dr. lloge and other prominent preach? ers. The ball was torn down and the walls temporarily strengthed, but mem? bers of the committee admit that the repairs was a mistake?that tho build? ing, the foundations of which are in? secure, should have been removed al? together. Rack of this hall at Seven? teenth and Franklin Streets, is the old First Police Station, now abandoned, and the whole building is infested with rats and trash of every description.

MEETS IN NORFOLK FEB. 1 Directed to Report on "Anything That May Explain Cause of Dissatisfaction/' Orders were Issued by Adjutant-Gen- ; oral \V. W. Sale yesterday appointing (he members of tho court of inquiry which is to investigate the entire coin .iiand of Virginia Coast Artillery, as , stated in The Times-Dispatch on Sun? day. The court will conveno in Nor- I folk on Wednesday, February 1, at an nour to be designated by the senior I officer. The personnel of the tribunal is as follows: Lieutenant-Colonel Robert 13. CralghUJ, of the First Infantry. Lynch- , fmrg, president; Major Clinton L. j Wright, adjutant-general of the First Brigade, Norfolk; Major T. M. j Wortham, commander of the First Battalion of Field Artillery, Richmond., The recorder, who corresponds to the judge-advocate In a court-martial, will be Captain I. Branch Johnson, of tlie Norfolk Light Artillery Blues. , "Wide Scope of Inquiry. Quoting" the order, the court Is to Include in their Investigation all facts as to the capaballity of present ofllcers, their interest, ability to command, at? tention to drills and other duties, dis? cipline and anything that may explain the cause of dissatisfaction existing In the different organizations of the corps. They will take Into consideration tho criticisms of the commanding officer. Artillery District of Chesapeake Bay, and other officers of Fort Monroe, Va., contained in extracts from reports of regular and militia officers on the Joint army and militia coast defense exer? cises during the year 1310, a no. also certain criticisms of the assistant in? spector-general, Virginia Volunteers, annual State inspection, year 1010. The5* will also give an opinion as to the discipline and efficiency of State corps." The duration of tho sitting of the court, cannot, of course, be predicted. The examination of every member of the corps would naturally consume considerable time, and the nature of the troubles which led to the ' dis? satisfaction" would determine the scope of the court's inquiries. Report of Officer. In the report made by Lieutenant Colonel Townsley on the Fort Monroe encampment, he severely criticized the discipline of some of the companies. However, the officers in some cases, he said, seemed alert and anxious to become efficient. He had some words I of praise for the Fourth Company, of Portsmouth, which was then only a few months old, and could not have been expected to show a high grade of training. The duties of an officer in the coast urtiriery require not only general mili? tary knowledge, but a large amount of technical training. It is difficult, in the opinion of Adjutant-General Sale, to secure the services of competent officers under the rlivumstances. POLICE COURT CASES Thro* Negro Hoya Whipped for Stealing Copies of Timed-Dispatch.

I Local military officers who have been In ' Washington sny there is no chance, for the I passage by Oongro?K at tho pro*ent session ! of tho bill restoring the canteen at army I posts. While nearly all of the army officers j favor the canteen tho pressure from to'>- | porance bodies Is too strong. Ma1orf Oeneral William P. Duvnll Is the latest to ndd advice that the on.nteen ho re? stored. He says that temperance 1s pro- j moled by the canteen, and thnt the soldiers I are harder to handle when they go outside I of tho post for their liquors. A novel plea mode to tho Congressman j was that most of them have no future Any-| way. having been relegated to the roar In, the late election, and that they might as j well pass this reform mcabiire before they | retire NO MEDICAL CAMPS Funds Not Avnllnblp This Vonr for Instruo tlon of Surgeons. Officers in the medical corps of the Vir gtnin volunteers are much disappointed to learn that there will be no medical camps of Instruction durjiig this year. There uro no funds available for the purpose of gath? ering the medical men of the regulnr army and of the militia together, and the War Deportment doe-s not desire, tn viow- of the. situation, to nsk a deficiency appropriation of Congress for this purpose. Brigadier-General George H. Torney, sur? geon-general of tho army, had planned for camps to be held at Fort Benjamin Hnrrl *on. Ind., nnd at Gettysburg.

BIG DAY FOR RAILROAD MEN Special Train 'Brought Them Here for Touch of High Life En Route Home. Pronouncing the entertainment by tho rnilroad men here yesterday as tin* banner feature of Hie annual conven? tion, the business sessions of which were held last week In Tampa, Pia., a delegation of nearly 1C>0 members of the National Association of Railway j Agents left for Cincinnati in a special train over tho Chesapeake und Ohio Railway yesterday afternoon ut 6:46 o'clock. As the train pulled out every. ! body cheered and waved from the win? dows and platforms, while the local railway men sped the parting guests as the train left the sheds of the Main Street Station. The convention was much like a big 1 family party. There were young mar? ried men and their wives, older ones with wives, and children nearly grown, and at least one baby, who evidently j preferred the quiet of Its nursery to tlie tun and frolic that ran free at tho luncheon in tho Jefferson Hotel audi? torium. Unlike the rest of the com? pany, the youngster was vociferous in l^is protests when Governor fclann i spoke. Neither did he approve of the ' other speeches nor even wax enthusi? astic over Polk Miller's jokes or the tnejody of the colored quartet. He was alope in his protests, and tho walls ol dissatisfaction added to rather than de? tracted from the general air of mer? riment. Warm Time nt Luncheon. When tiie five special street cars, which had been chartered for tho occa? sion, reached the Jefferson, shortly ut? ter 1:30 o'clock, the visitors were con? ducted at once to the auditorium, whoro the luncheon was in readiness. Tho ; large hall was decorated with palms, 1 and the tables with cut flowers, which afterwards were presented to the wo? men. As chairman of the reception com? mittee and toastmastcr, E. D. llotch klss, of tho Chesapeake and Ohio, wel? comed the guests and presented Gov? ernor Mann, who gave them his usual hearty welcome. He told them a great deal about Virginia?its past and prcs .ent?and pnld his respects to certuln other States of the Union on both sides of the line. For the benefit of the Ohio citizens, a number of whom were pres? ent, lie vouchsafed a prophecy. "1 think," he said, "that 1 am safe in the prediction that the next President of the United States will be from Ohio." Whereat there was much applause and d violent protest from the baby; nei? ther could the Governor take bis seat without having something to say on lls favorite subject, that of corn rais? ing in Virginia. The Mayor1/* Greeting. Mayor Richardson has tt weakness for railroad men, and this was a line occa? sion for him to tell them what he thought. He welcomed them to the ?ity, not only as members of the asso? ciation, but ns public benefactors, who. In the course of comparatively few years, had done more than any other class to make the United States one great people. Then he told some Jokes, \ and Colonel Boykin, almost alone, sang ' a song, accompanied by the orchestra, j W. T. Dabney, business manager of the Chamber of Commerce, was intro? duced as n very modest man, and did not say all he wished because of his extreme reticence; but he told them things about Richmond that made, the city nothing short of the "promised land." ?'I have been," ho Bald, "to places in the West whero thev said gold and sil? ver could be picked up in the streets; to Detroit, where they tell you 'life Is worth living'; to Milwaukee, where the very rain turns to beer, but believe me when I tell you, Richmond heats them all. You must believe me, because you have been denied the opportunity of seeing all that we have. Hore the sun shines all the time except when we get run over by a cyclone from tho West (most of the delegates wore from the West). Why, tho children do not have to wear shoes for more than six months during tho year." He then told some actual facts about the city and its advantages, and. as an ex-railway agent, gavo some observa? tions. "Oet as close," ho said, "as you con to the community in which you live, If you are a public servant." .Jokes and Melody. President W. H. Miller, of the asso? ciation, replied to the speeches, thank? ing the local members for the reception and expressing the great pleasure, ot the day in the city. The real treat, though, was when Polk Miller and his colored quartet were introduced by Toastmastor Hotch kiss anil Governor Mann together. For tho most part, these people came from the West, and know little about the I phase of Southern life that is brought , out in tho melody of the tobacco fac | tory quartet. Mr. Miller prefaced his I entertainment with tho statement that ' neither he nor his negroes would know ' a note if they stumbled over it in tho ! road, and begged that they be not critical. They were not, but listened with more attention and applauded with greater enthusiasm than if some, j great artists occupied the stage. En i core after encore followed each song, ' and it was after 5 o'clock when the affair adjourned, with three cheers for the Governor, throe for the Mayor, three for Polk Miller and three for everybody. Heard Henry'* Speech. The special train reached here fron? Tampa yesterday morning at 0 o'clock : over the Atlantic Coast Line, and was I switched over to the Chesapeake and I Ohio viaduct, coming to a stop under 1 the. Main Street sheds. Five street cars were walling before the station, and they were carried down Main Street to the Larus tobacco factory where they spent a few minutes going over the plant. Then the route lay out to St. John's Church, where the custodian delivered the famous oration of Patrick Henry with much spirit. Returning up Main Street and Ninth, n visit was made to tjie Capitol. Thence the cars ran out Broad Street, around the loop at William Byrd Park, and down Main Street to the Jefferson. Collector Mnrtln Here. Wheeler Martin, of P.aiolgh. collector of ITivlted States Internal rovonuo for the Fourth North Carolina District, made an official vlnlt yesterday to Collector M. K. Lowry, of the Second Virginia District, and Colonel W, IL Chapman, revenue agont hero. Electric Plant Contractor's , Pay Is Held LTp Pending Renewal of Work. MAY SUE BONDING COMPANY City Is Suffering Monthly Loss by Reason of Delay in Com? pleting Contract. Although a subcommittee, which had investigated tho matter reported that it "did not believe that the contractor was acting in good faitli with the city." the Council Committee on Electricity lust night granted another week of grace to Storms & Co., of Newark, N. ?I., contractors for the overhead distri? bution system of the municipal electric plant. The subcommittee reported that it had held several conferences with an agent of the contractor, but bad nb more donnite assurances than his j verbal statements that work would shortly bo resumed. In regard to the contractor's plea that he had been unable to secure wire and other material, at variur.ee with his statement at a former meeting, when he reported that "the material had been shipped." Consulting Engineer Trafford reported that be had called Northern supply houses on the long distance telephone yesterday, and had received assurances that <f lie placed an order, the material would be here within a week. The resolution adopted states that unless the committee has visible assurances within one week that the contractor will press the con? tract to ein immediate conclusion it will be annulled at once. Thought It Too Lenient. Mr. Don Leavy and others thought this very lenient treatment, and the suggestion was made that the city proceed to recover from the bonding epmpahy the loss of about $4.000 per month which the city is sustaining by j reason of the delay. The contract spe- | cllled delivery November 7 last. The city is now operating its. own electric plant, and because of the delay, is also paying the Virginia Railway and Power ) Company for lighting the streets, mak- j ing a double charge. The company : gave bond for faithful performance j of its contract with the Empire State] Surety Company, of New York, for $27.- , 26'.*, that being 50 per cent, of the orig? inal contract. Found Clcrleni Error. Engineer Trafford reported that a slight clerical error had been dis? covered In a voucher authorized at a I former meeting of about $4,000, as a i payment on account to Storms & Co., ! for work already done. Tho vote ap- ! pro%-ing the voucher was reconsidered, ' and the engineer directed to prepare ' a new voucher before the next meet - ! lng. The question was raised whether tho new voucher should be approved, but the committee decided to defer ac- . t'on until It appears whether the con- , tractor is "acting in good faith," since j if there is to be lltigaUon with Storms <fc Co. over the unlillerl contract, the ' city will have the whip-hand for all ; unpaid balances, regardless of what It may recover from the bonding com? pany.

Common wealth's Attorney Gunn to Present Evidence in Mining Disaster. Believing that criminal negligence on the part of individuals responsible for the operation of the Gayton mines caused Friday's fatal calasfrope, Com? monwealth's Attorney Julien Gunn will present the case for complete Investi? gation to the grand jury of uio Ilen rlco county Circuit Co?urt next Tues? day. Tito mines are owned by the Old Dominion Development Company, but as there can be no criminal prosecution of a corporation unrler statute it will be necessary for the State to press its Investigation upon the men employed by the concern, inasmuch as they wore .paid as capable persons to properly handle and supervise such work. The Commonwealth's Attorney author itativcly declared lust night that-each phase leading up to the disastrous ox plosion will be gone into by the grand jury. He said that no stone will be left unturned to place the responsibility for the death of the six nTiners. A question of jurisdiction of the Hon plco court may be raised by tho de? fense. Although the Gayton mine was opened In Henrico the men who met their fate wore at the time under the soil of Goochland county. The ques? tion Is said to be a fine law point, anrt it is probable, that 'Judge K. Carter Scott will be required to pass upon It. OPRICHHOND? A DOLLAR IN BANK Is an obstinate thing"?it stays put.

CUT THROUGH LEGALTANGLES Had to Arrest McClanihan After Latter's Release on Habeas Corpus. Finishing up ti man-hunt which has continued for the last five years anu safely bringing hack his prisoner, after many difficulties, Detective Sergeant Forrest C. Bailey, of Police Headquar? ters, returned from Seattle, wash., at 2:45 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and Immediately reported to Major t.vMiOr and communicated with Governor Mann, whose representative he had been On , his mission to lite Pacific coast. Sergeant Bailey left here on the night of January 3, meeting Sheriff J, T. Fleming, of Dtckensbri county. In West Virginia, to bring back William McClanihan. wanted in that county for the murder, live years ago. of ?VIII Harris, whom he is alloyed to have killed with tho latter's own pistol. Had .Many Difficult Ich. The journey West and return was fraught with many difficulties and ob? stacles. Several times the olhcera were snowbound in the Far ?Vest, and in several places they had to wait over until their trains could get through. The trip occupied exactly twenty days, when in Oregon news reached "the olli cers that their man had been released on a writ of habeas corpus, and utey began to despair of ever bringing hint back. But Sergeant Bailey, who has had much experience In detective work and In bringing extradition cases to a successful issue, managed to * get through the legal tangles which threatened permanently to obstruct his work, and McClanihan is now in Jai in the county from which he was an alleged fugitive. A detailed report of the trip was given to Major Werner yesterday after noon, and the chief was much pleased with the work of the detective, us re? flecting honor on the Richmond Police Department and upon himself. Creu.v was also given to Sheriff Fleming, who. according to Sergeant Bailey, proved himself to be a good woods craftsman. Cnnc Looked Hopeless. Wihen the officers left Virginia they were Informed that McClunihan was under arrest In Seattle. In Portland, Ore-, Sergeant Bailey bought a copy of the Portland Times and learned that McClanihan had been released on a writ of habeas corpus on January 7. j It looked then as if their mission would prove futile. But Sergeant \ Bailey was equal to the emergency. ! He left the train at Portland, sending Sheriff Fleming ahead, and telephoned to the deputy sheriff at Chelelias. Wash., where McClanihan was said to be. asking him to meet Sheriff Flem? ing and to afford the latter all as? sistance he could at the expense of the State of Virginia, and to have the' alleged murderer renrresled. Then he caught the next train for Olympia, where he saw the Governor and obtained the latter's signature to the extradition papers. Then he went to Chelelias and met Sheriff Fleming, where they learned that Mc? Clanihan was at a place called May- ! field, thirty miles distant. They ob? tained a vehicle, and, with a deputy sheriff, drove the thirty miles, and found McClanihan in a store, getting tho Information from a couple of small children they found in the rond. McClanihan was surrounded before he knew there were strangers in the village, and was arrested. They drove back to Chelelias, making the thirty miles, going and coming. In twenty four hours, and found that they were too late to catch a train. The next day was Sunday, and no train out. Bendy to Xnli Ulm Agnin. In the meanwhile McClanihan was making efforts to sue out another writ of habeas corpus. But Sergeant Bailey was again on tho Job. He remained I with the prisoner, ready if lawyers I came and got him out, to swear out | another warrent and to hold his man for another twenty-four hours. In j case of a third effort to have Mc? Clanihan released ho had made ar? rangements to arrest him on another, warrant and to get tiie Governors of | Virginia and Washington In commu? nication with each other, so that tho 9,000-mllo journey would not prove to have been useless. At one time, when it was practi? cally certain that an effort would be made to release the prisoner. Sergeant Bailey worked a ruse on the lawyer for the defense, and had his man safe? ly hidden. A day and a night, were spent In Seattle, and the return Journey was begun nt 0 o'clock last Tuesday morn? ing. The train had gone but eighty eight miles when it ran Into a snow bank, and was delayed ten hours. All night, while ho was handcuffed to the prisoner, Sergeant Bailey listened to the snow plows working ahead. Ho had little sleep. He had McClanihan handcuffed to him the entire journey, never losing sight of him for a mo? ment. At a point In Ohio he separated from Sheriff Fleming, and the latter, who was mot by another officer, took the prisoner to Dlckenson county. Flve-Ycnr Search. McClanihan, for whom search has been made five years, had lived in Washington State for more than four years. Tie refused to talk of the crime with which he stands charged. Sergeant Bailey said that, except for tho continued anxiety that efforts would be made to get the prisoner from him and Sher'ff Fleming, lie en? joyed the trip. He saw many interest? ing sights, met many interesting peo? ple, and was welcomed by the authori? ties In the various cities In which he had to stop. He complimented Sheriff Fleming on the way the latter con? ducted himself. Once, when they thought there was danger ahead, Sheriff Fleming told Sergeant Bailey to FOlWtESr C. 1IAII.EV. load the way and tf>li him what to do, that he would bo with him tu tho end.
