CHILDREN'S COURT
PLAN 18 APPROVED
Ordinance Committee Recom?
mends That Probation System
Be Introduced.
PROVIDES DETENTION HOME
Salaries Are Fixed for Deputies
in OfTice of City
Collector.
As n substitute for tin ordinance re?
ferred providing for holding a special
term of the Police Court In the after?
noon twice a wooRT for the trial of
Juvenile offenders, the Council Com?
mittee on Ordinance, Charter and Re?
form last night recommended an lordln
ance prepurod by C. V. Meredith, and
^strongly recommended by the Juvenile
Protective Association and several
other societies, which conforms to
State laws recently enacted with re?
gard to delinquent children- The first
clause provides for the appointment of
n special probation ofllccr. preferably
n woman, though the ordinance does
not eo stale, the salary being placed j
at 51.200. 1
The second clause provides that the
judge of the Hustings Court may de?
signate- three police officers for spe?
cial service as probation officers In
carrying cut the work outlined, this
power having nlrendy been given to
the Judge of the Hustings Court by
State law. The third clause provides
that In order thai no child under
seventeen years of age, when arrested
for any offense, shall be confined In
Jail previous to trinl. the Finance Com?
mittee is empowered to enter Into a
contract on n per dlom basis, for the
detention and care of such chlld/on.
previous to trial, with some approved
home of detention or charitable society
having such powers under Its charter.
The fourth clause provides that the
Police Justice of the city of Richmond
shnll hold a special session of his
court every day at noon, whenever
necessary, for the hearing of Juvenile
and non-support cases. j
City ,\oiv Breaking I/aw.
Mr. .Meredith explained that the
ordinance was carefully drawn in com?
pliance with State law, which the city
was Itself breaking In sending a. child
under seventeen to Jail or police sta?
tion; In falling to hold a separate
court tor trial of children's cases, and
in not supplying probation oiliccrs.
Such officers have been supplied by
private churitablc organizations. Dr.
.lames Buchanan, superintendent of the
Associated Charities, and Mrs. Buch?
anan have acted for several years past,
while the Police Board, unwilling to
send children to Jail, has committed
them without compensation to the As?
sociated Charities building. Dr. Buch?
anan spoke on the ordinance, oaylng
that he had at his institution last
night three girls who had ran away ]
from home In oiher cities, been arrest- |
c-d, and were being held for their par- j
en is.
A number of others spoke on the
provisions of the ordinance, represen?
tatives of the Instructive Visiting
Nurses' Association, which has done ?
large work among the poor, calling at?
tention to tho Importance of having
one trained probation officer, prefer?
ably a won an, who could do work
that police ofllcera, whether in uni?
form or not, could not undertake. The
measure was strongly Indorsed by Po?
lice Commissioner Manning, speaking
for the Police Board.
_\o Stable In ItcHldentlal Section!
The application of Walton & Epps
for permission to operate a public
stable on North Thirty-second Street
was .rejected on protest of the neigh?
bors. The proposition of Increasing ;
the pay of the two bill clerks In the
Water Department, which provoked
such a storm at the last meeting of
tho common Council, wns sent back
w;th recommendation that it go first
to the Water Committee.
The committee unanimously recom?
mended that the office of City Collec?
tor be kept on a salary basis until iL
can be aboliJribd by legislative enact?
ment, as has already been recommend?
ed by this committee. The committee
recommended the following scale of
salaries: Collector, J.I.BOO per annum;
deputy, Jl.r.OO; deputy In Washington
Ward, $1.200; clerk hire, $1,200. The
lfist Item leaves It optional with the
Collector to employ a number of men
In the busy seasons.
The committee adjourned to Friday
nitrhl of next week, when the much
debuted W.csthampton Street car
schedule will he the special order.

FORD PURCHASE
MAY BE DELAYED
Judge Grinnan Confirms Sale,
but Appeal Is Taken to
S.upreme Court.
BYRD ENTERS A PROTEST
If Supersedeas Issues, Deal Mag
Not Be Closed for
a Year.
Should an appeal noted yesterday In
the Chancery Court he granted by tho
Supremo Court of Appeals, of Virginia,
tho sale to the city ot Richmond of
the Ford property opposlle tho City
Hall will be tied up Indefinitely, until
such time as the' highest court shall |
have given a final Judgment in the
matter. Tho objoction Is on the part
of one of the heirs as to the price
ivhich is to be paid.
A decree was entered yesterday In
the Chancery Court by Judge Daniel
Grlnnan, confirming the snle to the
city of the p'roperty. at the option
price fixed by the former decree, the
City Council having consented to the
purchase. Thereupon Richard Evelyn
Byrd. attorney for Mrs. Bennett, one
of the Ford heirs, filed notice of pro?
test at the price, and asked for a sus?
pending order that he might lake an
appeal to the Supreme Court. Tho ord?
er was issued.
Some, time will necessarily be con?
sumed in preparing the record In the
cr.se, and this with the petition of Mr.
Byrd will be presented to the court.
The granting of an appeal and super
sedeas would delay the consummation
of the sale until tho court hears and
decides the matter, which would prob?
ably not be possible before next March.

The permits should have been obtained on
January 1, at the time new licenses were i
(Sailed from the office ot the Secretary of Iho i
1 ominonwealth. It was noticed that appli?
cation for permits from the 1'ollce Depart- 1
ment did not come up to the number of au- \
lomoblle owners In the city, nnd an Investi?
gation of the records of the Secretary of the
Commonwealth was madr by Bicycle Police?

HOLDS ALLEY IS
PUBLIC PROPERTY;
City Attorney Renders Opinion
1 Which May Result in Court
Proceedings.
In an opinion rendered by City At?
torney Pollard to the City Engineer,
there Is established the true lines of
an alley between Grace and Broad
Streets, west of Seventh Street, just
In rear of the Young Men's Christian
Association building. At present the
alley?a blind one?Is twenty feet
wide. The Keppler estate, owner of
property at Seventh and Broad Streets,
at the last meeting of the Street Com?
mittee, filed a petition setting forth
that eight feet of the alley belonged
to Its lot, and was private property on
which It had merely permitted public
use for the convenience of its own ten- .
ants. Proposing to build on Seventh
Street beside the alley, the Keppler
estate asked that it be given the true
linos and Kindes, so that It. might built
over Its eight-feet of the alley, leaving!
It but twelve feet wide. The Street
Committee Instructed the City Engineer
to ascertain the true lines of the al
ley and issue a certificate according?
ly.
The opinion of the. City Attorney,
rendered to Mr. Boiling, Is adverse to
the Keppler contention. Mr. Pollard
holds that the whole of the twenty-foot'
alley Is a public thoroughfare, and may
not be enclosed. It Is probable that
the mnttcr will be tested In the courts,
as the Keppler estate mnlntalns Its
titln to the disputed eight feet of
frontage on North Seventh Street, now
having a considerable cash value, and
it was t'cporV-d nt the City Hall yes?
terday that an application would he
made for a innndamus to compel the
City Hngineer to give u certificate of
line, including the debatable strip. f
Such action would throw the whole
question of title to the strip into
court, and secure a flnnl determination
of the true ownership.
WARRANT SWORN
OUTFOR GREGORY
Missing Railroad Cashier Is
Charged With Theft
of $5,000.
DETECTIVES GET TO WORK
Full Descriptions Sent; Out.
Attachment Against His
Automobile.
Sufficiently satisfied now, after an
exhaustive examination of his accounts,
that Ixntls I/. Gregory, the missing
cashier of the Atlantic Const Lino Rail?
road, has absconded, Ernest Polndex
ter, special attorney for the American
Surety Company, which went upon
Gregory's bond for $30.noo. yesterday
swore out n warrant for the former
cashier's arrest, charging hin? with
the theft of J5.000 from the railroad
company.
The warrant was Issued after a con?
ference between Mr. Polndexter and
Captain McMahon, at which were pres?
ent II. L, King, freight agent of the
Atlantic Const Eine Railroad. In whose
department Gregory was employed: \V.
G. Farmer, chief traveling auditor for
the company, with hendqunrters in
Wilmington. N*. C. and H. T. Fisher,
traveling auditor, with headquarters
at Rocky Mount. N. C. The three men
were named on the warrant ns wit?
nesses ngalnst Gregory. The one war?
rant Is sufllclent In itself to cause the;
arrest of Gregory anywhere In the
United States or Canada, but It Is ex?
pected that other warrants wIlL be
sworn out. as the shortage which
Gregory knew would be discovered, j
and which led to his sudden departure, j
will amount to $ ] .",.000 or US.000. and;
possibly considerably more.
I Dot pot I vc.i nt Work.
The warrant was Immediately placed
In the hands of Captain McMabon, who
to-day will Siegln the sending of tele
grams and circulars to every point .'*t
! the 1,'nlted States, describing the miss?
ing man and ashing for his arrest on
sight. The detective department,
which previously had been quietly at
work on the case on its own volition,
knowing that a warrant would he
issued sooner or later, will now take
active charge of the case. Detectives
.were specifically assigned yesterday to
run down all clues as to - Gregory's
destination when he left the city?for
no one believes in the suicide theory?
and to discover all they could con?
cerning his movements here before his
departure, it la definitely known th.-i
Gregory was here until lit Ions'
o'clock Saturday night, for he was In
the company of a woman In the enst
erri part of the city between !) and 11
o'clock that night. Phe stated posi?
tively that he had been with her. and
that he left her about 11 o'clock.
At 7 o'clock on the same night he
transferred from a Broad and Main
Street car to an castbound Main Street
car at Eighteenth and Main Streets.
It Is supposed that he went down to
the Old Dominion dorku, deposited that
"farewell" note, and then returned up?
town, where he cashed one or more
checks, and then went out for a last
fling. But the detective department is
little interested In Gregory's move?
ments here except as they may lead
to some Information as to his destina?
tion when he left Richmond.
niver th Drugged.
Dragging for a supposed bqdy in
the river progrosfed yesterday, at the
request of the family; but. of course,
no one. not even the men employed at
the expense of the city, expect to find
the remains of Gregory In the turbid
tide of the James River. The search
Is being conducted purely as a formal?
ity, for It Is argued that It is hardly
reasonable to suppose that Gregory
would leave his note on the river hank,
return uptown to cash checks for large
sums of money, go out In the com?
pany of women, and then wind up by
throwing himself Int.) the river. And
In the extremely hot weather of' the
past week a body would have risen to
the surface by this time and have been
found. I
No further clues were received yes?
terday as to the Baltimore end of the
case, though even before the warrant
was issued the police departments of
Baltimore, Washington and Philadel?
phia were asked to look out for Greg?
ory and hold him until papers could bo i
forwarded. But the defaulter has had ,
four days' start, and may be half-way,
across the continent by this time.
Automobile Attached.
It seems that Gregory loft some:
debts behind him, and yesterday the'
Poster Motor Company, claiming u
debt of $207. caused an attachment to
bo isr.ued hy the clerk of the Henrlco:
county Circuit Court against one of the j
automobiles owned by him.
The warrant issued against Gregory
yesterday charges that the money wns:
stolon within the past six months, dm-,
Ing which most of the peculation Is be-'
llevod to have been committed. This,
sum was paid into the hands of Greg
ore as freight chnrges by a tobacco,
company. U was not credited on the,
books until sulllclcnt other funds to
cover the deficit had been received. As
other moneys came In, all preceding
deficits wore covered up. and thus
Gregory managed to keep ahead of the!
gnnie until the nuditors began their,
work.
An editorial in The Times-Dispatch yesterday began
with the sentence, "Why is it that men arc so foolish?"
This might sound like an idle question, but in
reality there is a great deal of food for thought be?
hind it.
No one can tell "why men are so foolish," but we
all deplore the fact that some of them are.
Our idea of a foolish man is a man who doesn't
take advantage of the opportunities that are before
him.
not only points out these opportunities through the
press every day, but offers him new ones in the place
of those he has neglected. If you have not used these
opportunities?WHY?

FARMERS TO GET
WEATHER REPORT,
Will Receive Free Service Over
Wires of Southern Bell
System.
Through an arrangement perfected
between the United States Weather
Bureau and the Southern Bell Tele?
phone Company, more than 25.00U
Southern farmers will receive the ilally
weather reports by telephone, begin?
ning June 1. The announcement ttl this
effect was made yesterday.
The dally weather reports will be
furnished the telephone company by
the Weather Bureau, and the report
will be read to the farmers by tele- 1
phono operators. At a given Hour each
day a 'general alarm will be soundeiL
calling every farmer ^to the telephone.
When they are all assembled the re?
port will be read. Any farmer who Is
not able to answer the signal and hear1
the report has the privilege of call-1
Ing the operator and securing the. In- I
formation.
Almost every farmer's telephone llnei
connected with the Bell system has st.\
or more subscribers, and by reading
the report to each line the work can
be speedily accomplished.
This is the first comprehensive and
systematic effort to furnish this In?
formation without cost to the fanners
of the South. The spread of the tele?
phone In the rural districts In the past
few years ha3 made It possible to reach
such n largo number of farmers through
the Bell system, and the dissemina?
tion of weather news by telephone Is
one of the many practical uses for the|
telephone on the farm.
The territory of the Southern Bell
Company covers the States of North I
and South Carolina, Georgia. Florida.!
Alabama. Virginia and the southern
half of West Virginia.

the nmnunts rocovercd from tho United
Slates government on the Oalvcston
und Mohawk claims.
When the shlp-bulldlng ?company,
failed, these vessels wore uncompleted.

the property of the builders rather
than tho property of trne government.
