terms last night by T. Gilbert Poarsdh, j
of New YorU, secretary of the National

Mr. Pearson pointed out that when
the female Is killed ,by the hunters to
supply the marts of the big metrop?

starve to death.
Ho brought but this point more j
strongly by the use of stereoptlcon !
views, taken from actual photographs. I

young. The small birds were next
depicted dead in their nest, while the

The slaughter of seagulls to aid In
the bcnutlf icattoii of women was also
deplored by Mr. Pearson, who de?
scribed In 'detail how the killing of
these birds which hunt the coasts of
this country was brought about and
followed tip to such it grout*extent thai
nearly all of the States alone; the At?

stating thai there are is.hod known

true sportsman secures his pleasure In

To hunt does a man good. Hut tho
man who thinks only of a big game

The speaker continued: "The time

Ward Plans to Construct Line to I
Northern Neck if Rich?
mond Will Aid.
In reply to a letter written by Vice
president T. M. Carrington. of the
Chamber of Commerce, asking if the
City Council could legally appropriate
j a sum of money to the proposed stand?
ard gauge railroad from Wicomlco, In
Northumberland county, to Doswell. a
few miles out of the city at the Junc?
tion of the Richmond, Frederlcksburg
and Potomac Railway and the Chesa?
peake and Ohio Railway. Mayor Rich?
ardson yesterday enclosed an opinion
of the City Attorney to the effect
that auch an appropriation would not
be legal and that the money would
have to be secured through subscrip?
tions. The amount asked from the city
by C. M. Ward, who is promoting the
venture, is $150.000, and the estimated
cost of the entire road Is 31,500.000.
Tn hin lettor to the Mayor, Mr. Car?
rington gave the. route and called at?
tention to the fact that. It would open
for this city a territory from which
there now comes little trade, hut which
contains nearly 100,000 inhabitants.
Mr. Ward several times appeared be?
fore committees of the chamber, and
has explained that should an amount
of money bo appropriated to his pro?
ject it was his desire that it be placed
In the hands of competent trustees
and not to bo used until the road was
completed and in operation. The fund
would be used in part to pay the in- I
forest on tho cost of tho road for the
first two years, as during that time il
is not expected to bo solf-sustalning.
Though ruling that the city could
not contribute to tho road according
to the. terms of the charter, the Mayor
stated that both he and City Attorney
Pollard 'heartily approved of opening
up the new country, and that Mr. Pol?
lard would agree to subscribe $500. lie
was of tho opinion that the amount
could be readily procured through pub?
lic-spirited citizens. Up to this lime
Mr. Carrington lias not made-any ar?
rangements to raise the money, but the
matter probably will he taken up by
him and Mr. Ward through tho Cham?
ber of Commerce.
