Accuses Glass of Falsehood and
Cowardice in His Rich? mond Speech. DENIES IT HAS SOLD OUT South Boston News Announces It Was Object of Glass's Attack. Denouncing as absolutely false the statement rhado by Carter Glass in his Richmond speech to the effect that it had beeu subsidized, the South Bos? ton News, in its issue of tills week, says that it is the publication to which Mr. Glass referred in Ibis connection, but wlilch he refused to name. The Lynchburg candidate was us..cd by members of his audience to call tin name of the newspaper against which he was bringing his charges, but did not do so. Characterizing the fiction of the un? named paper as "shameful prostitu? tion." in bitter language Mr. Glass told how, although for many years an op? ponent of the "machine." it had re? cently published many articles In op? position to his candidacy, paid for, but not so marked Further, he charged It had refused to print the announce? ment of his candidacy at full adver? tising rates, and. to cap the climax, had republlshed as an advertisement a mendacious attack made upon him. and than, when he asked for an oppor? tunity to reply at advertising rates, the answer came back that the pub? lishers confessed that the'r columns had be?m sold to th?? other side, and they could accept nothing save from the side of the "temporary appointee." Did \ot Write letter. It will be noted that Mr. Glass did not. charge that he had a letter from the publishers of the paper making this admission. An ordinary reading would leave this Impression, and It hrm been generally so accepted, but ll will be noted that it could he construed that the letter came from another part-.- telling Of the "shameful prostitution." From the statement of the South Boston News, it appears that the offer of Mr. Glass's reply was presented to it by B S. Har? bour In the shape of li clipping from a Baltimore paper. The New? sr>*s that Mr. Glass has no letter from the pub? lisher in regard to printing his card. After sarcastically referring t.-> Mr. Glass's supposed mc at not being able to buy what ho wanted, the News fays: t_"f?en Aiinnln? Undue. "In justice to all the rest of the newspapers In the State, and after this apportion? made hv Mr. Glass, who de? clared he had the proof in hand, his refusal fto name the paper) was un? just to the fraternity and cowardly on the part of Mr. Glass. An Insinuation without an explanation Is the worst, form of mendacity "Why did not Mr. Glass, wo a^ain repent, after lie hn 1 made quotations from the paper? Why didn't he. like a man. stand up before that audience and proclaim that the paper r'-f'-rr^-d to was the South Boston News, for thnt wan the paper from which he had! quoted? There Is not a man of moral courage In Virginia to-day that would make a crave charge against his fe.l-v. low-ritizen In a public mass-meeting and then refuse to give his name. And that's Jos? what Congressman Glass did. Virginians will overlook mis? takes, pardon ?rrors. but will not con? done wanton Injustice and cowardice. "AhKOtutely Ffilnr.'' "With regard to th* Insinuation that, the editor has bf^n ImiiGlit, or the edJtn-ir.; columns subsidized, or that he has ceased to fight ring and po? litical combines against the rights of thft people is absolutely false.

' "Whence conir-th this great reformer,! anyway? With what faction has Mr I Glass been affiliating? Tf \v| mistake not. in the great Montague and Martin ! senatorial contest in 1005 Mr. Glass* i was n supporter of Mr. Martin, the reputed head of the machine ?the ring. | And. further, it is reported, and we j have not yet heard It denied, that Mr I Glass only a few months apro proposed to Hon. Hal. Flood that if he would make the race for the Senate that he (Glass) would support him most heartily. Mr. Flood is one of the 'hie four' of the so-called Martin machine. "Why such a sudden chancre in your factional affiliations? There are rea? sons, no doubt. Chilled tils '/.eat. "Perhaps Governor Mann, whom you po loyally supported three years asro. and In whose behalf you were willing to break the heart of a wife nnd mother, and blot out the sunshine from the life of sons and daughters, when there waa no nood for it, by arraying before the public a long settled family feud, chilled your zeal when ho ap? pointed ex-Governor Swnnson to fill tho vacancy caused by tho death of Major Daniel. "That was an awful slam. Ingrati? tude and lack of appreciation aro bad things, and surely Governor Mann was? guilty of these. And then thoro" woj another chance, a first-class chance for Governor Mann to do the hand? some thing, but, alas! Mr. Swanoon again got the plum. "No, Mr. Glass, tho peoplo of Vir? ginia will hardly think that you ara more righteous than they.

"Tho statement that you had a letter from the publisher of this paper in regard to publishing your caTO is posi? tively untrue. "A clipping from a Baltimore paper was the only thing that reached tb4s office, and that was presentod by JC 6. Barbour." SMALL" FTHEFOR TANK PEDDLING The decision handed, flown yesterday morning by Maglstrato Cheatham, If the Oak Grove court, Chesterflol? county, found tho Standard OH Com? pany, the National Oil Company ana tho Richmond Oil Company, and the drivers of these three corporations guilty of violating the peddling law, and Imposed a line of *-260 upon each of the companies and ?100 upon one driver of each. An appeal was imme? diately noted by the attorneys for the defense. By this decision the magistrate goes on record as declaring the salo of oil from tank wagons Illegal and a viola? tion of the Stato revenue laws, and It i.s generally agreed that the case will be carried to the highest courts and its validity tested in order to settle once for all the legality or illegality of the universal method of sale used by all oil companies. In a conference between the oppos i ing attorneys a \v.;ek ago, when the hearing of the eharg"a was being con? ducted, it was agreed that one case against each company and ono case against each driver was to be tried, and whatever decision was reached by tin- magistrate in regard to these teat cases should apply without contro? versy to the remaining batch of war? rants out against the three companies. When asked yesterday, after the an? nouncement of the maglsttate's deci? sion, how many warrants would be pressed against the companies. County Officer Jerrell, who worked up the cases, stated that none would be served until the six cases.pending have been threshed oat. It is understood that there is no limit to the Warrants that can ho executed on the companies if the case should be Irrevocably de? cided againct them in the Supreme Court, and with a minimum tine of $1"0 and a maximum in each count of $000. .Terrell's share of tho fines will be a small fortune. Counsel for both sides stated yes? terday that an effort would be made (.0 have tho cases brought up at the special term of the Circuit Court of Chesterfield county, to be called by Judge Watson the latter part of this month. Counsel for the Standard Was Bppa Hunton, Jr.. and C. I... Pace; for the National. T. A. Williams, of Nor? folk; for the Richmond, A. W. Patter? son, while Commonwealth's Attorney Gregory and Conway Sands prosecuted the charges. SHAFTS FROM SPORTLAND By GUS MALBERT? Without offering excuses for making tho statement, the game yesterday was j by f a r the most loosely played of any witnessed on th* local diamond this season. Why this is true, or what cause? contributed to the performance Is beyond my ken. Certain It is thai "Truck" Egan and Pfahler were way off. and contributed largely to the suc? cess of the squad which Is being engi? neered by Topsy Hartseil: Po far as I am concerned. I am perfectly willing to go on record as saying that Pfahler will not do. This assertion is mad*; at this time because I believe that now Is the time to make improvements. Pfahler may he a good ball player, but he has failed to deliver up to the pres? ent time. From what I have been able to gather, he has a bad knee, and he favors It at every opportunity. In? stead of facing a ball hit to him. he dodges to one side. When he does manage to got in front of one he goes to his knees That kind of playing Is not going to h^lp the local team. It In ay be that T am wrong. No fellow on earth Is more willing to admit an error than I am. but neither Pfahler hbr Glauser at this writing looks Ilk? being able to keep up with tho rest of thio crowd which Sullivan has got together. Jack Barker Is now a member of the Richmond team. He was left hero by Hartsell upon the recommendation of Connie Mack. Barker Is touted as a good pitcher. Contrary to reports which (have been printed hereabouts, ho Is a normal sided boy and not a portpaw, as has been written. Yes? terday he was given a preliminary try out by Sullivan, and it is more than probable that he will be sent in against his teammates to-day. He Is young and good .looking, which may com? mend him to a portion of Richmond's population, at least. Baker is credited with two errors in the box score, but something should be said about those errors- Both of the balls hit to him were hard drives, and could have been credited hits if the scorers had desired to be a little more lenient. I was one of the men who felt that he should he given errors because I felt that had the diamond been in proper conditional third bases player of Baker's ability could have handled the hits. In justice to the little fellow, it should be said that he Is up against it good and hard at that corner. He is compelled to get the ball before 'it leaves the grass, be? cause If he does not there is no tellinc what It will do. The ground begins to slope down into a sort of ravine after the grass is left, and instead of bounding the ball has a tendency to skid. No ball player on earth is quali? fied to judge, a ground ball under such conditions. Raker is a great, little ball player, and he should be helped, pot hindered, by a bad diamond The ex? hibition games do not amour - to much, but they furnish a means of finding out where the faults lie. Sam Crane took occasion to hand a deserved tribute to Baker's ability in yesterday's New York Journal. He spoke of him as one of the best Infieldcrs in the minors, and 1 agree with him fully. Egan was responsible for several of THREE PITCHERS ?El Boston Yannigans Bat Out 18 Hits and Win by Score of 16 to 6. [Special to The.
