The public exercises in the Hail of the blouse pi delegates, and the reception tendered ut night to tlie distinguished guests by the Chamber of Commerce, resulted in a marked impetus to the modrrn spirit of progress and achievement WnutM Sk\t Hiillrotid At the night meeting Governor Mann renewed his argument lor the building of :?. lino ot railroad which will connect Richmond with the Northern Neck. in this he was not alone, for Senator .lohn K Saunders, <>1 Middlesex, echoed th-_> Macedonian cry from the people of his section to Hie public-spirited men of this city 10 <ome over and Kelp them and iu allow Hiem to build up. on the banks of the James such a city that sec? tion has helped so long t > do for the city ut tlie lic-ad of the Cr.esapeakc Hay. Tin' general subject of railroads re? ceived attention not alone from W. \V F?lle y, president of the Soutne? n, but from Governor Mann and Mayer Rich? ardson.

Half nit hour was spent the af? ternoon in the inspection ot t ne min? eral, timber and historical rxh'bit. In? stall-d In the new Hall of Exhibits In the Slate Library Building. The \isl tors were surprised at the variety ot the collection, representing 7.0 01? speci? mens, every lte**i coming from this State. The showing was hardly be? lievable to the men present. Then adjournment was had to the House of Delegates hall, where the presentation exercises took place. Cap? tain W. W. Baker, the father of the ex? hibit, and former Jamestown ?.ommis Kroner, presided. Ills address was a review of the history of the display, front the time when Governor Swnh son, realizing the importance of an adequate presentation at Jrmestown, took the matter in hand and secured the liberal co-operation of the mining Interests of Southwest Virginia. The result was the formation of the "Vir? ginia Mineral and Timber Exhibit As? sociation of Virginia." wnich was duly incorporated, and. which made the dis? play at Jamestown, with the exhibit j of to-day, possible. The Norfolk and Western, the Atlan? tic Coast Line and the Virginian Rail? ways transported the entire collection from the Exposition Grounds to Rich? mond without a penny of cost to tho State. Then, through President L. 13. Johnson, of the Norfolk and Western, the services of E. A. Schubert, who has been In active charge of tho installa? tion, were secured. Got Much Help. Mr. Schubert spoke next. He gav? credit to the many agencies which have contributed to the fruition of his alms?the Stonega Coal and Coke Com? pany, the Blackwood Coal Company, the Colonial Coal and Coke Company, the Virginia Iron, Coal and Coke Com? pany, the Pocahontas Collieries Com? pany, the Ritter Lumber Company, J.

Mathicson Al? kali Works, the Southern Gypsum Com pany, the railways which transported I the display, the Richmond, Fredericks- | burg and Potomac, the Chesapeake and Ohio, the Norfolk and Western and tlie Southern, for their displays, and, last, Captain Baker and Governor Mann. In conclusion he turned the keys of the exhibit hall over to Dr. Thomas L. Watson, the State Geologist, undci whose direction the display will ovei hereafter be open to the public. Dr. Watson, said but a few words in acceptance, lie added his persona) tribut? to the men who have aided in the work. No State in slm'lar area, he paid, has a greater diversity of natura) resources. Each problem of the State Geological Commission in future, he promised, would be represented in the exhibit by specimens. Reception by Chamber. President Henry W. Wood, of the Chamber of Commerce, presided at the reception at night, which was held In the Jefferson Auditorium. The devel? opment of Virginia, in his opinion, is in Its infancy. He warmly commended the efforts of Governor Mahn for the upbuilding of the State, and predicted that his administration would be full of notable accomplishments. Mayor Richardson did not think there Xvas anybody for him to welcome, for tho Virgininns who live outside of Richmond own the city. The display just opened, ho said, has nothing new, but, as this Is an era of advertisement, 11 shows for tlie first time what Vir? ginia really lias.

One was to Increase the salaries, so as to unable a comparatively poor man to live on a scale with his colleagues, and the other was to provide him with a suitable house in which to live.

"It is also strongly recommended by a Republican of Democratic tendencies ?using that word in Its broad sense? the President of the United States."

A few days ago they announced thai they would fix the membership of the House at 391, which would have cut off one member from North Carolina and one from Virginia. Then they agreed on 443. Now It is learned that they may Indulge in a little log rolling and entirely sidetrack Mie reapportionment bill for this ses? sion. They prefer to follow the latter course, it ls said, because so many of the Legislatures are now controlled by the Democrats. For this reason, see? ing they cannot get the 391 plan through, they would prefer, it is said, to let the whole thing go over until next session. P. H< McG.

SOCIETY ATTENDS IN FULL FORCE Perfect Police Arrangements Prevent Rushing of Bridal Party?Cheers Greet Ap? pearance of Bride at Church. Couple Will S pe n d j Honeymoon in Egypt. Now York. February 7.--Helen VIV- ! ien, second daughter of Gnorgo J. Gould, head of one of the wealthiest and most prominent famllie'i in Ameri? ca, was married at Si. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church, in Madisu.i Avenue, shortly after 4 o'clock this alternoon to I.oid Decles. an English army of? ficer. She 1= eighteen yearj old: he is forty.four. The church was packed with a bril? liant assemblage representing the best of New York's social and professional life, together with a sprinkling of foreign nobility, relatives und friends <>f the bridegroom. Outside In the slushy streets:, there pushed end shov? ed the usual crowd of curious persons. Vet. notwithstanding the crowd, there was no untoward incident, and none of the many cranks who have asaailed Deeics in anonymous communications made themselves knoWn. The ceremony was performed by Bishop David II. Grcer. of the Episco? pal diocese of New York, and the Rev. Leighton Parks. D. D . rector of St. Bartholomew's. George Gould gave his daughter away, and Miss Edith G>uld. the bride's next oldest sister, was maid of honor. Lord Alas tar Graham. R. >.., a son J of the Duke of Montroso. was best man. Lord Derlen Arrives Knrly. The guests began to assemble more than an hour before the wedding. At 3:15 Lord Decles arrived, nearly an hour before the bride's car stopped at the curb. lie was resplendent in his uniform of the Seventh Hussar?, ngllt ter with service medals and blue and gold braid. Patent leather boots glist? ened on his feet, he carried a plumed helmet in the crook of bis arm, and wore a sabre. Unnoticed by most of tho crowd, he entered the church surrounded by a group of friends, who wero apparently taking no chances with cranks. He was as calm as a soldier should be, out a bit perturbed lest the crowd should postle the bride-to-be on her arrival. J The police arrangements had been planned carefully, however, the line ' held and there was no rushing or a bridal party, such as occurred when Majorie Gould married Anthony J. Drexel last year. A cheer went up as George Gould and his .laughter stepped Iroin a big limousine ear, and entered the church. As they did so the tlrst sunshine of the day peeped forth. A moment later | the notes of the wedding march sound? ed. This was at 4:13, and Lord Decles j and his best man appeared at the ! chancel. The six bridesmaids, carrying i lilies of the valley, led me bridal party. They were followed by the little at? tendants, baby Gloria Gould with Mas? ter William Beresford, and Diana Dal zlell with Master Marcus Beresford. Miss Edith Gould, as maid of honor, came next, immediately preceding the bride and her father. The ceremony was over in twenty-three minutes, and Lord and Lady Decles posed for a mo? ment for a battery of cameras before their car whisked them away to the reception at the Gould mansion on Fifth Avenue. ClmriKe In Brfdeumaliiw. The illness of Miss Beatrice- Claflin, \ one of the bridesmaids, necessitated a change at the last moment, and Miss Claflln's place was taken by Miss An? nie ' louglas Graham. The other bridesmaids were Misses Hope Hamilton, Hannah Randolph, of Philadelphia; Louise Cromwell, of j Washington, D. C, and Allison Pierce, ! of Oyster Bay. Two little nephews of the bridegroom. Marcus and Graham Beresford, carried the train of thej bride's gown. The ushers wore Earl Percy, Lord Camoys and Robin Grey, the English- j men of the party; Phoenix Ingraham, Moncure Robinson, Robert H. Russell, Anthony J. Drexel, Jr., and Francis W; Crowinshield. Preceding the bridal party was the boy choir of the Cathedral of St. .lohn the Divine, singing "The Voice That Breathed O'er Eden," to the setting of Parker. The music program of the wedding was most Interesting. While tho guests were arriving the choir of, St. Bartholomew's rendered, unaceom- j panied, Schubert's "Great Ts Jehovah"; j also Parker's "Ijnm Sol Recedit" and "Tu Sine Llttore." There were two solos by RIccardo Martin, of the Me? tropolitan Opera?Rossini's "Cujus Animam" and the prayer from Masse? net's "Lo Cid." A romance by d'Am broslo was played by harp, violin and organ, and Henschei'a "Morning Hymn" was sung by tho church choir, with a tenor solo by Lemhert Murphy. The bridal party entecrd to the fa? miliar wedding music from Mendels? sohn's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," and the recessional was Parker's music to "Lord, Who at Oana's Wedding Feast." Mr. Arthur Hyde, organist of St. Bartholomew's, was director and or? ganist. The floral decorations were almost -entirely of white flowers, the only bit of color being that of the Forsythla spring branches, with their pale yellow flowers. English Ivy and Southern smllax also entered into the decora? tions, Hhcse two greens being signifi? cant of the two countries, England and Amerca.

INSURGENTS STILL FIRM Will Leave Room if Attempt Is Started to Turn Meeting Into Caucus. Albany, X. V., February 7.?In a con? ference behind closed doors to-morrow morning, the Democratic members of the Legislature, regulars and insur? gents, will endeavor to settle I he dead? lock over the election of a United States Senator, which eighteen joint ballots have failed to break. Friends of Wil? liam F. Sheehan. tlie leading candi? date, confidently predict his election as a. result of the conference. The Insur? gents still insist he cannot win. Dem? ocrats and Republicans alike say that it means a eri>is in Mr. Shcehan's cam? paign. Governor Dix late to-day. after stating that he is pleased over the proposed conference, said he hoped and expected the conference to result sat? isfactorily to the people of the State ami to the Democratic party. Governor Dix was given credit for bringing Hie opposing factions to? gether, but he said to-night that he did not suggest or arrange the con? ference. Sbcchnti Cannot Wlu. Senator Roosevelt, leader and spokes? man for the insurgents, was emphatic to-night in saying that Mr. Sheehan cannot win. Charles F. Murphy de? clined to discuss the conference. Nor would Mr. Sheehan comment on it. With live absentees, he still lacken fourteen votes of the required num? ber to-day. There has been no change in the vote since January 23. The conference was called unex? pectedly by the Democratic floor lead? ers soon after to-day's futile ballot. Practically all of the insurgents previouslv had been called to the ex? ecutive chamber one at a time, and ? asked hv Governor Dix if they would favor a" conference. They were all I agreeable, provided it was not made ' a caucus. In that event, the Governor, was told plainly that they would leave tlie room. j Following the announcement the ttt- } snr^ents held a meeting, when, accord- j lug to Assemblyman Miller, they de? cided to leave in a body in event of an attempt being made to turn the con? ference into a caucus. Governor and Mrs., Dix were hosts to-night at the annual reception to the member? of the Legislature, and the senatorial situation figured largely In the political gossip, hut without giv? ing any indictaion of the outcome of to-morrow's con fere nee. OUT OF RESPECT TOSOUTH Rhode Inland House Strikes Out "War of Rebellion." Providence, R. f.. February 7.?An objection to the words "War of the Re? bellion," similar to ono which was made recently by a Southern Congress? man in the national House of Repre? sentatives, was put forward in the. Rhode Island House to-day. An amend? ment] to include marines with tlie militia soldiers and sailors of the "War! of the Rebellion" as exempt from poll | taxes, was under discussion when I Representative W. A. Shnweross, Dem- I ocrat, asked that "Civil War" be sub? stituted for "War of the Rebellion." The motion was carried by a vote of 50 to 23. Representative J. J.

WELL RECEIVED BY PEOPLE Important Change Probable in Paper and VV.ood Pulp Provisions. Washington. D. C-, February 7.? President Taft is satisfied with the progress which is being made looking forward to the passage by Congress of the reciprocity agreement between this country and Canada. Although he had expected opposition to the meas? ure, he. thinks that, on the whole, it has been well received by the people of the United States, and tnere has been much less genuine opposition to it than he expected. Among the White House callers to-day, wiio discussed reciprocity with the President, were Representatives McCall and Mann. Iniportunt CUnugc Likely, As a result of the growing belief that the paper and wood pulp provi? sions of the new Canadian reciprocity agreement will operate one-sidedly to benellt tho ? Dominion without a cor? responding benefit to the United States, an important change is likely to i>o made by Congress in the measure be? fore it is ratified. Paper manufacturers and others, I who have studied the agreement close? ly, believe that the language of the ar I rangement is so drawn that the United States may be compelled to admit paper free, before Canada complies with her part of the agreement. The situation has been presented to the Ways and Means Committee of the House in such a strong light that many members of that comnn'ttee are satisfied that, the agreement between the two countries on the paper and pulp provisions is open to a construc? tion which will he distinctly to the disadvantage of American manufac? turers. Secretary Knox. of the State De? partment, sent a letter to the com? mittee to-day, stating that the com? missioners who framed the reciprocal arrangement, had arrived at only a tentative argroement upon the pnper schedule. It can be changed, he said, Without defeating the rest of the I I treaty; and its adjustment can be left I I to future negotiations or future ac- | tion of Congress. Where Trouble Arluen. The (rouble arises over the dlstinc- j tion in Canada between "crown lands" and "private lands;" and the rulings that the Treasury Department at Washington has made on this sub? ject. Where Canadian provinces pro? hibit the exportation of pulp logs it is from "crown lands." The provinces have no power to prohibit the expor? tation of logs cut from private lands. The Treasury Department Una held thai even where a province has pro? hibited the exportation of .ogs from "crown lands," the logs from private lands, or tho paper manufactured from them, come in at lowest rate. On this basis, it is feared, that the courts will hold that paper from private land tim bor, or from provinces that have no restrictions, can come in free, even before the rest of 'he provinces re? move their restrictions. .Members of the Ways and Means Committee stated to-day that this was not the opinion they hold when the rec? iprocity agreement first was made pub? lic. They are certain also that tho commissioners of the two countries did not hold that opinion. It was Intended that ro Canadian paper should come in free until all Canadian provinces al? lowed American mills to have free logs. Jt Is believed that a ehnngo win be made In the language of t'.iit sect Ion,, so that it will not be left open to tho (Continued on Sevontfc Page.). Carries Message From Fort? to Troops Camped on Border. TRIP COVERS 32 WILES Amateur Aviator Makes Success? ful Flight Over Water. San Diego. Cal.. February 7.?Carry? ing an official message from Major iMcManus, commander at Fort Roso crans. to Lieutenant Ruhlin, command? ing the United States troops camped on the .American side of the border at Tla ,1 uana, Harry Harkness, ama | tour aviator, made a flight in an An? toinette monoplane early to-day. Ho delivered the message and returned *o his hangar on North island, opposite I this city, and close to Fort Rosecrans , In fifty-six minutes. The distance for I the round trip was thirty-two miles, j Harkness flew over the camp of the United States soldiers at a height of 100 feet, and dropped the message, which was weighted. He circled above tho camp long enough to see the mes? sage delivered to Lieutenant Ruhlin, and then returned, and after passing over the cruisers now anchored In the harbor, came to the earth. Tilts is the first tlmo the aeroplane j lias been used in actual military oper-i ations In the 'United States. For the, greater part of the time Harkness i was over the ocean or the Ray of San Diego. Ills machine worked per? fectly, and the fight was made with? out accident or delay of any sui t. Offer to War Department. Washington. February 7.?The War j Department to-day received from the i International Aviutors through Alfred I B. Molsant, an offer to supply seven ! aeroplanes and aviators to manage' thorn for the use of the army on the Texas border. General Wood, chief of staff, has replied that the offer will be taken under considera? tion. The International Aviators have been giving aviation exhibition in the., South recently, and now arc at San Antonio, Tex., so that their machines easily could be taken to tho boundary. President Taft is opposed to having the United States spend much money for aeroplanes, and losing army oftl cers through accidents, while aviation ls still In such an embroyon'c state, \ Insofar as it Is connected with actual \ warfare ls concerned. He believes in waiting; until It ls more certain that j aviators can he of assistance to the j army; and of the experiment to be conducted with aeroplanes along the i Mexican borrjor. ho thinks that it will! ho hard for an aviator 100 feet or more Up In the air to distinguish very clear- i ly just what the situation below is. The President thinks it would bo bet- ; ter to let other countries do more of 1 ! the preliminary work In discovering Hie use of aeroplanes in war, and that there will be plenty of time later on for the United States to garner the harvest of good results, if such there are, which other countries discover.

EL PASOANS VIEW "EXHIBITION" Exchange of Missiles Lasts About IS Minutes and Federals Re? tire, Orozco Remaining in Position He Held at Noon?Sightseers En? joy Spectacle, El Paso, Texas, February 7.?The first battle of Juarez, between Federal troops and Inaurreetos. was exhibited to-day. "Exhibited'' is the proper word, for no one was hurt on either side, and the "exhibition" was viewed by a thousand or more El Pasoans. who lined the bank of the Rio Grande on the American side, about three miles west of Iii Paso. The exchange of missiles lasteCt about fifteen minutes, and about 200 shots wore llred. According to Pascual Orozco, the loader of the Insurr?ctos, his men fired only fifty of these. Ho declared that, the Federals go-; away so fast that they were ou: of range before more shots could \>i tired at them. To-night the Federals are behind tho walls of the Cathedral of Guadeloupe, of the barracks and of the bull ring at Juarez. Across tho river from here, Orozco remains in possession of tho position which he occupied at noon, and held against the Federal advance. He declared In an interview with tho Associated Press correspondent that ho firmly Intends to attack Juarez, but that he awaited the arrival of Gen? eral Blanco with 350 men. He 'looked for the latter at any moment Orozcu's present force around Juarez numbers less than 600 men. probably 550. Of these. 320 were with htm in the skirmish this afternoon. Tho Federal forces, by actual count, number 18 4, inr eluding 100 foot soldiers, and eighty four mounted infantry. They took with them no artillery, and Orozco has none, j Tho Insurrecto leader and his men I spent last night at Rancho Flores, usually Inhabited by a few horses and a herd of goats, which the rebels took* Reaches New PoHttlun. Orozco quit the ranch during the forenoon, and by moving ^ through tho deep arroyos which scar the desert everywhere, reached a new position In the hills along the river across from the El Paso smelter. Here the corre? spondents, who had been on his trail slnco daybreak, discovered him. He and six of his lieutenants met the visitors half-way up the bowlder strewn mountain side. He carried a rifle like his men. Me looked care? worn, but determined. Ho answered i questions only after deliberation and often evasively. He was of no mind to betray his plans. ! His 320 men were scattered along1 j the hills for three-quarters of a mile, j Some one leaving El Paso In an auto j mobile, coincident with the departure I of the Federals from Juarez, under j Colonel Rabago, gave them the rebel ! warning. .Making a trumpet with his hands, the El Pasoan shouted: "Get busy; the troops are coming." The scout machine was quickly fol? lowed hy scores of others, each with a load, many of the passengers beinf? women. Others came on horseback, carriages and express wagons, on hay ricks and bicycles, and hundreds by I the street car line, which runs out to ; the smelter. Other hundreds on foot j arrived breathless after It was all over, except for an occasional "Viva Maderu" echoing from tho hills. At the alarm of the automobile, as the Federals marched out. the whole mountainside awoke to life. At 200 ! yards, the revolutionists looked like Insects, making their way on all fours i to avoid bullets, through the maze of j cactus, soap weed, sagebrush and \ boulders. It was about 2 o'clock this morning: when Colonel Ritbago marched out the river road. Tho sastern wing oC ! Orozco's force opened fire when the j foot soldiers appeared on :> crest, about BOO yards distant. The Federals halt ? ed in a compact mass, but escaped in? jury because tlie "thirty thirties" car? ried by the revolutionists are not ef? fective at that distance. They return? ed the fire for fifteen minutes. They j then turned and retreated at a dog: I trot. The mounted men oi the Fed? erals did not come within range. .Make Rupid Retreat, i The sight-seers on tlie American side hour witness to the celerity of the re? treat, for the Federals wore in full view for nearly a mile. As soon as the news of the impend In g tight reached Colonel Shatpe. com? manding tho Twenty-third Infantry, j Li. S- A., he detached reinforcements to> guard the smelter, to prevent possible . violation of American neutrality. I The skirmish had been over for an : hour, when an Insurrectionist, clutch? ing a live lies., lull in his hand, cross? ed to the American side, lie bed been sent to buy .i dinner for Orozco, who ? had a surfeit of goat meat. A soldier j turned him back, fearing thai he wish-, f ed to purchase ammunition. j Again on the Mexican sidr-, he on ? countered some newspaper men who guaranteed the innocence of his mis? sion. He bought his supplies under , their supervision, and was sent back, grinning. ' Orozco was content with repulsing: I the enemy. After the retreat of the latter he searched the ground thor? oughly, but discovered no sign of blood i lotting. Seen following the skirmish, Orozco j said that while there had been no lo.^a of life, he was glad of the moral effect ! of repulsing tho enemy. The moral i effect was needed, for Orozco's stock ! has dropped several points among hjs ! svmpathi/.ers. first when he .allowed i Rabago to elude him at Bauche on ! Sundov. and second for failing to at - tack Juarez on the heol-t of that offi? cer. Orozco gave his side of the story ', for the fired time to-day. He had whued at .Inure/, lor two days for Rabago. He was without food ?>r 1 water, His men clamored for an a<i?
