Acquitted on Appeal on Charge | of Selling Liquor to Minor. i Reversing the action of the Police; Justice, the jury in the Hustings Court ! yesterday acquitted John Powers, bur; ( tender at Murphy's Hotel, on the. ? harne of selling whiskey to Robert G.j Jones, of Petersburg, alleged to have : been a minor. In the Police Court | Powers was lined |5tt and tfut under bond of ?.*,00 for on.' year. Had this decision been sustained the hotel would have lost its license. A<lIon was brought against Powers and the hotel by Jones's father. .1. II. Jones, hi" 200 Sycamore street. Peters? burg, who walked Into the liar, he said, just as his son was In the act of re? ceiving a drink from powers. Attor? ney Gilbert Pollock, (or the defense, moved that Hie warrant, which had previously lieen amended, be quashed, on the ground that Powers was not named as a licensed liquor dealer. This was overruled, and after Mr. Pollock had noted on exception, the trial was KOiie into. It took the Jury but a short | while to tiring In the verdict of not guilty. Apparently Mr. Jones was not at all satisfied with the result, and especially with certain things that Attorney Pol? lock brought in evidence. When court adjourned he remarked In Mr. Pollock that they were both men, and intimated that he would like to have the case out In a personal encounter. There were policemen present, however, and Judge Witt also look r. hand, saying that the court would deal with any one who' was inclined to resort to violence. The ln I cldent passed off without further show of ill feeling;. Pertinent Comment BY GUS MALBERT Lots of things can he said in a column of this sort which ' would not at all be acceptable In a news story concerning a basehall pmo. For In? stance, while the story of the last ball game in Danville hinted that the um? pire, Cook by name, was bail, it did not tell just how bad he was. In the eighth Inning of the last Danville game?the inning in which three runs were scored and the game practically won?Alexander hatted a ground ball to Raker. Frye and Laughlln were on first and second respectively. The ball that Raker got was right on third hug, ami he couldn't get away from getting Lnughlin, as he (Laughllni was forced; If any question existed as to which man was out, Alexander at first or Lnughlin at third, that'question could, in tlie mind of any man looking at tin play, have concerned only first base. Bui that isn't all. The fact is that Baker completed as pretty a double piny as has ever been pulled off on any diamond. But L'mps t'ook called Langhltn. Hie man forced at third, safe, and Alexander out. Mad Hie play been called as It happened! Ihe side would have been ret lied, 'and the fluke hit of Brady, which scored three, would never have happened. This explanation Is made in justice m the Colls. Naturally I Baker wan sore over Hie decision, and jjie told CoOk what he thought. ' The argument which ensued was a question between Cook and Baker. Cook did fine 'him and could have or} dored blm off the grounds, lie did not order, htm off. and the avalanche of oillcluls which descended on the diminutive local thlrd-snckcr wns un? called for. As a matter of fact, they hud no right on the diamond until the umpire called for police protection or for the olllccrs' nld to remove a man from the game. However, what muk?s it all the worse is the fact that one of the men look his pistol?a long-bar? reled :t6?from his 'lip pocket and placed It in his coat pocket. pre? sumably to havo it easily i accessible. And till of this for it 116-pound giant. Now n little more for (Imps Cook. He misses being tin umpire about as much as any man who over worked in tills league, lie was bad on bnlls and strikes: he was worse on base de? cisions, and to sum it all up, lie Is the laughing stock of lite ball players. A I talk with several of the Unnville men ?and they are nice fellows?brought out the information Jhal they were well 'aware of the rankness of the work of Hie nnips. and especially of his raw deal to the locals. Every nan of them knew that Baker had com? pleted the play, but they were In no j position to make any statement. Wher? ever Cook has worked he has brought dissatisfaction. He didn't know that a pitcher on the rubber without the bull In bis hand was guilty of n balk. President Williams Is \\'orking hard i to make this league a success, and he can do good work right now by get- ! ting a new crew of umpires fron which to make his selections. This, with the exception of ' Kelt man. who has been eminently satisfactory, and Henderson, about whom little is known, but who worked well while here. Eck man and ] Henderson look like n good nucleus to start with. The rest will never do. If it were one club or one man kicking against their work something might lie wrong with the man or the club making the kick. But when tlip club managers are unanimous in speaking of how bad the men are, then some cognizance must be made of their out? cries. The president of the league is per? fectly right In saying that he is going to stand by Iiis umpires. But he must got umpires?and personally I believe that he tirtll ? who know the game. Es? pecially is this true whore a lot of young hall players are being broken in. The youngsters usually fool that ? they know the game from beginning to end. and when they do find that they really know more than the man who is directing the piny there will be, and can be. no discipline or respect. Had Sir. Williams witnessed the Danville series, as did the writer, nnd watched the work of Deary and Cook, he would I come to ahout the same conclusion. No charge is made that they actually tried 1 to help one team or hurt another. They J may have been fair: at least, they were I bad on both sides, hut they were in- I competent. Will history repeat ilself. and will Boanoke win to-day after the slaugh? ter of yesterday? If you think it is any fun scoring a game when every man on the team but three changes positions. and changes them frequently, set out and try it. Everybody scored nnd everybody hit. excopt Cy Pearce', and ho didn't got a chance. Truck Egnn led the procession with four safe ones out of four times up. Martin got three out of five, and Cownn got throe out of four. Baker nnd Mc each got two out of throe, but one of Mcs was n triple, which counted In the run-getting. And everybody mnnnged to cross the pnn, oven the mnrried men. Donnovnn did good work after he re? lieved Pierce. ' Remember that the fel? lows loft on n trnln nt 2 o'clock In the morning nnd had to got up at 7. Imagine yourself in their places nnd then see how you would l'ke to play n hall game that same afternoon. j Dutch Rr-vello is in town trying to lind an arm fixer.

Regal Shoes are e mission* an Heretofore, all good shoes have been built to sell at fixed "even" prices?$3.50, $4.00, $4.50, $5.00 and so on. If a shoe could be sold at, say $4.35, shoe traditions would not permit it. It had to be "built up" by adding unnecessary expense to sell at $4.50, or "cut down" (to its hurt) to sell at $4.00. All this has been changed by the. Regal Shoe Company's new plan of selling shoes just as many other necessities are sold?and just as all necessities should be?at a definite,' small commission over cost of manufacture?in our case only 5 per cent.?plus the cost of selling. It makes no difference whether or not the price figures out in "even money." The new plan gives you Regal Shoes nearer to actual cost, and charged with smaller and fewer profits than any other make. The price is stamped on the shoes at the factory. This stamp is your guaranty that more of your money goes for quality and less for profit than in any other shoe you can buy. This is the stamp that T.-ill hereafter be found od Regal Shoes. It is your guarantee that tbe price appearing in Its centre Is the lowest lor which a shoe of such quality can, be bought. - eg $<*35 to $1 yvREGAL FOR MEN AND WOMEN WatWns, Bib? & fflalone, 611 East Broad Street SOUTH AMERICA INVITING TRADE Opportunities Extended to Rich? mond Manufacturers in Argentine Republic.

Ho laid particular stress on the advan? tages of Richmond in trading with this section. He gave statistics to show how the United States, and Virginia in particular, could compete with the Buropean nations that are flooding the country with their goods. Cbnnec for Ittchmonilere. "Of special importance to Richmond business men," said Mr. Chandler, "are the openings for the sale of tobacco, furniture, agricultural machinery and implements, steel products and oil stoves. "As regards tobacco, the tobacco used in the manufacture of cigars and cigarettes in the Argentine Republic, about $-.800,000 worth annually. is all Imported, about $300,000 worth, or a little more than a tenth, coming from the United States. Tho tobacco raised in Argentina docs not compete In any way with that produced in tho United States, nor is It likely to for many years to come, [f is chiefly used for Insecticides, and as shecp-dlps and insecticides are annually Imported to the value of $2.600,000. 25 per cent, from tho'United States and G2 per cent, from England, it will bo soen how in? significant the local production of In? secticides from native tobacco must be." ? Mr. Chandler made a most favorable impression, and a number of the local manufacturers doubtless will turn their attention to the development of tho .South American trade.
