"Tom .Moore" the Subject at "Woman's Club. John S. Munce gave a most delightful talk yesterday on Tom Moore, not as the poet and musician alone, but pic? tured him in his many-sided nature *nd his many powers. Tom Moore, the contemporary of Scott, Byron and Wordsworth, tho poet who lived" and moved among tho many intellectual geniuses of his age, and still struck the human and divinely sweet note in all his songs. Simple love, simply told, ivas in all Hint ho wrote. But not only wuh he a. real poet, but a (ieltghtf?f aatlrist. novelist, and was chosen by Byron to write his biography, which Is a finished work. k The famous Irish rjoet visited Arasrj POPULAR VIRGINIA BRIDE MISS ANNA JONES, Whose marriage to Sidney Neblett will be solemnised to-day at S o'clock at Joncaboro Baptist Church, Brunswick county, Vn. Ica, and wrote two of his most exuuia itc poems here, inspired by local themes, a French heating song and "The Legend of Dismal .Swamp," and "Believe Me if All Those Endearing Young Charms," which the speaker de? clared to bo the greatest love song ever written, is said to have been in? spired by a very beautiful Richmond woman, whom Moore saw while here. Mr. Munce, filled with a great love for Moore, scorns the fact that many English textbooks do not teach Tom Moore's poetry, lie was essentially a poet and musician; ho "wrote a nation's son'^s," and wherever there Is the heart of man and maid, Moore will be loved, "1 find Cascarets so good that I would j oot be without them.

SENTENCE IS COMMUTED Negro Gets Ten Years Instead of Life?May Have Pure Food Exhibit. Before the State Corporation Com? mission, at 11 o'clock this morning, will begin the hearing on the petition of the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad Company to be al? lowed to Increase its maximum in trastate passenger rate from 2 cents to ." cents a mile. The commission will' s<t as a court in its chamber. The presumption Istha t the proceed? ings will be very much in the nature of those taken in the case of the Wash? ington-Southern Railway Company, an 1 allied road. The petition of the Rich? mond, Fredcricksburg and Potomac Railroad follows the same lines as I that of the other road, arguing that the , strictly intrastate pasengc-r business is done at a loss, by reason of the low rate charged. Allowed 2 1-2 Cent Unto. In the case of the Washington - Southern, the Corporation Commission declined to permit a charge of :i cents a mile, but entered an order allowing a rate of 2 1-2 cents to be charged, thus putting the line on the same basis with the other trunk railroads of the State. Tiie Washington-Southern wa3 not satisfied with this ruling, and took an appeal to the Supreme Court, where the case is on the docket awaiting- ar? gument at the March term. Inasmuch as the arguments advanced for a 3-cent rate are the same in the present case as in that of the Wash? ington-Southern, there would appear no reason to doubt that the judgment of the commission ,wlll be the same. In that case, the decision of the .su? preme Court would cover both in? stances. The Richmond, Frederickshurg ami Potomac Railroad does an Immense through husiness between the North and the South, and the proportion given to It of the receipts from through travel is understood to be the reason for its desire for a H-cent rate. SENTENCE COMMUTED Nenrro Sent Up for Mfe on Third Con? viction, Get* Tterlitctloic. The Governor yeslerday granted a commutation of sentence to Walter Layne, who was convicted in the Hust? ings Court of the city of Richmond In April. 1004, of housebreaking, and sen? tenced to two years in the peniten? tiary. Inasmuch as this was haync's third offense, he was In the Statt-, prison for life, even though given only two years. He has served nearly seven years, and j the Governor has commuted the sen? tence to ten years. Tt Is supopsed the man will soon bo released on parole. .ludge S. R.

Supreme Tribunal Will Soon Reach Adjournment?Several ' Cases Argued. "While a good many cases pending in the Supreme Court of Appeals have been passed to the March term, this does not relievo the docket as a whole, since it is the court's custom to dis? pose of all cases before adjournment in the early spring. However, argu? ment and submission have proceeded rapidly since court met on January 3, und it is probable that adjournment to March will soon be reached. It is a matter of comment among lawyers that the docket In Virginia's highest court is never really congested, while in the other States suits drag on interminably because of the plethora of matters on the docket. This Is supposed to be due to the pro? cedure in this State, under which the court or or one of the judges, in term or vacation, passes upon petitions and grants or refuses writs of error and appeals. In other States only an ap? peal is necessary to get a case up for argu ment. Cnnes Are Heard. Yesterday's proceedings were as fol? lows: Ford and others against Chelf; ar? gued by J. L,.
