Richmond | Academy wns second, with 30 points, | and McGulre's was the trailer, with 25. ' It was by far the prettiest meet I held in Richmond In years, and the ! junior athletes made some lime whlcn I puts tho older clnderpath performers ! to the blush. A fair crowd?not as 1 large as the excellence of the sport' merited?was out to do some rooting, j und It rooted. John Marshall wns tho j favorite, and the regularity with which tho athletes from tho public school \ scored Indicated that the confidence! was not misplaced. Il?rloiv the Sttlr. While John Marshall was confessed - I ly the strongest of the three schools, to Marlow, of Richmond Academy, should go the honors. He Is one of the heodlest. fastest und most consistent sprinters developed In Richmond since the good days of McNeil und others at Richmond College. Not only Is "so good judge of pace, but he has the '? stamina to carry htm across tho tape. He won for his school four firsts, with out which It would have been a sorry i trailer. By outclassing his field Harlow won handily the 50-yard dash, the 100-yard dash, tho 440-yard run and the 220 yard dash?a remarkable showing eorv. Blderlnp the fart that there wne but a short rest between the events. Harlow Is going to become one of the best athletes In the St.He If he keeps the pace which he ha* set for himself. He was the winner of the medal for the best all-around athlete at tho field dnyj of Richmond Acjiderhy. Five points were added to the Academy's score he cause neither High Srhool nor Me- | Oulre's produced ? midget relay com? plying with the requirement?, and the j race was' therefore awarded the Acad? emy.

Only the short distance to the tape kept the Academy boy from wlnn'ng. It was a great race.

Gradually the $10,000 Needed for Improvement Is Being Secured. The work of securing subscriptions for the building of the Gordonsvllle to Old Point Comfort Highway con? tinues, and H Is the aim of those In charge to have the whole of the $ie,000 desired In hand by tho close of this week. While tho work of securing this money. continues here, actual work of building the road is In progress, and many miles of the road between thl3 city and Old Point Comfort have been completed. Up in Doulsa county the people are not less anxious to sea tho amount raised, atid the farmers are giving to the fund with exceeding lib erellty. Thus far, while the subscrip? tions have not amounted to as much as was expected, nevertheless sufficient has been done to assure tho building of the highway, and now plans are being made to practically apply the funds In hand, which, when placed with tho county and State aid. means the completion of the road. Of the amount subscribed, practi? cally all lias been in cash, which ren? ders It possible to determine just how fast the plans are being matured, and means also that just as soon as the fund Is large enough to guarantee and permit contracts to he closed, bids will be asked for the construction of bridges, and road supervisors will put their forces at work In places whero tho work i3 not already being done. Under the kind of supervision which will characterize the work of con? structing this road, It Is expected, to build the road at much less cost per mile than has been the cost of build? ing heretofore with the ordinary road force. On tho road being constructed between Richmond and Old Point much better road is being built for 1150 per mile than -was built In some of the sec? tions of this State where material was as accessible and labor as abundant, at | a cost of $600 per mile. Tt Is urged that motorists take ad? vantage of the present good weather and make the run down to Old Point over the road being constructed, and see Just what Is being done. Tho round trip may easily be made In one day, with considerable time for rest at Old Point, and those who would avail themselves of the trip will find the roads In much better shape and see the work being carried forward In much larger extent than Is gen? erally considered. The committee In charge of secur? ing subscriptions again urges those who have not contributed to do so at once, cither by handing same to some solicitor of the association or by niall direct to H.

Legislature what is known as the model child labor law. For Juvenile Courts. What, has been accomplished by juvenile courts was discussed by Judge Julian Mack, of Chicago, former Judge of the Juvenile court of the Windy City,, and now of the Court of Com? merce of the Unltod States. He referred to a welfare conference which has been In progress for more than a week In Chicago. He called at? tention, to an exhibit there which cost $75,000, and which was paid for by a wealthy woman- He urged that stops be taken to bring It to Virginia, and stated that plans -ire already under way lo send it to various points throughout the country, that It may aid In the work of benefiting the chil? dren. The speaker pointed out that the foremost reason for the establishment of a juvenile court was that it kept tlio boys and girls away from adult criminals. "There is no neod," he said, "to send the riollnnuent child, tho neg? lected child, the child who violates the law, or any other child, to prison. It Is the duty of the Stato/T? earo for Its .youngor generation and bring up the boys and girls into decent walks of lives, that they may become useful I cltlr.cns. v State*1 KlKhtH. "In most eases the .State Is relieved . of this responsibility. It used to" be thought that a State had not the power or authority or the legal theory to tako charge of a child. That lden has ) no foundation; It has been exploded by the highest authorities. But If nxtural parents fall or neglect to do tor the child, the State, as the Hit 1- j mate parent, has a right to make Its \ destiny for good, decent citizenship. j "The Juvenile court is a new tiling. | It was first established In Chicago, the outgrowth of a philanthropic work. 1 and by it the best modern thought con? cerning tho child has received rein- | forcement. i "In the eyes of the law there Is no i distinction between tho child \and adult criminal. This has resulted In the mingling of the child with the hard j ened thief, pickpocket, murderer; cast ; Into prison, a boy consorts with crimi? nals of tho vilest types: the girls with J women who have gonP the paths of i wrongdoing. Keep Avrny Front Felons. "Instead of trying to raise up a , generation of good children, the StatesI have been trying to stigmatize thorn. The Juvenile Court no longer stigma? tizes them and punishes them by cast? ing them Into a felon's cell. To-day we tako the child In hand and try to show it tho error of its ways; educate I It and brins It up. We bring it out ,ot ! the wrong path into the right and to j decency, and the State. In Justice to all Its children, ought to perform this.. I dttlv. "Don't arrest children when It Is not necessary?there is entirely too much arresting in this country- anyhow, com? pared with the European nations. There is no need of this. and. if thero Is need of arresting n child, the tiling to do Is not to lake It to prison. "Whore there are Juvenile Courts thero are detention homes, and If It Is necessary to keep a boy or girl there for ono or two days, he or sho Is kept occupied. Those detention homes have teachers and children held theru lose no time from their studies. 1 The Judge's Surroundings. "The Juvenile judge needs no ex? terior effects to add to his dignity. He doesn't want a high bench, but a tabiu on the floor level where he can talk to an erring child. "If It Is found that a child has been doing wrong, do not send him to a reformatory, put endeavor to place him under the environments of a home. He may be returned to the homo of his parents or guardians. Here Is where tho work of probation officers comes In They constantly keep an alert eyo upon all such cases "If you can't show your Loglslnturo that It Is money In the pocket of tho Slate to care tor Its children, you will find Individuals >4~ho will be willing to aid In a fund to start the movement, and the work will quickly enough bo taken up by the authorities." Law, nut No Money. In submitting tho report of the com? mittee on Juvenile Court, Chairman C. B. Cooke. of the Civic Improvement League, said: "The last Legislature enacted a pro? bation law which helps some, but It provided no Judges, and far worse, providod no money to carry the law Into operation. "I should like to see In Virginia tho plaqlng out system ntiopted, wheru juvenile delinquents are rem to good homes In the country, and If necessary the State should pay the board of such child rather than spend tho same amount of money,, or perhaps more, to keep them In a reformatory." In discussing Virginia's placlng-out work, President George H. Denny, of Washington and Lee University, chair? man of the State Board of Charities and Corrections, said at the session held yesterday afternoon in the Vir? ginia Mechanics' Institute: Cnroil For In Fnmllles. "It Is recognized that orphanages | and similar institutions are necessnry for the temporary, and, perhaps. In | rare cases, for the more or less per? manent cure of dependent children: tout I Just at this time in Vlrglnln we need to put the emphasis strongly upon the duty of all classes of Institutions to place these children In families, when] proper homes can be found " "There has been more or less criti? cism of certain phases of this kind of work n Virginia, as elsewhere. At| times thero has been an echo of sus? picion of actual wrongdoing. There are I few things in all the catalogue of crime more heinous than the traffic in i children, and the Stato Board of Charities has the fixed determination that any complaint of moral de? linquency In this direction shall he dealt with in such a manner as will save the honor of this Commonwealth and protect tho Interests of Its un? fortunate children.

Natural Life for Child. Dr. R. R. Reeder, superintendent of the New York Orphan Asylum, made an Interesting address before the con? ference yesterday morning. The child, he said, should be sup? plied with a natural life and reared amid family and home association with his parents. He should associate dally with other children of both sexes, ha should have freedom, room and material to play and regular school Instruction. He .pronounced In? dustrial training, suitable for the child's ago and strength, and moral and religious training as imperative. "Society," ho declared, "is respon? sible for the care and training of many thousands of children, there helng 160,000 to-day who have lost their natural gucrdlanB." He urged an improvement of the work in caring for unfortunate chil? dren, and concluded his address by saying that there are now 1,100 in? stitutions In the United States which care for 100.000 children. VIolatlnnM In Virginia. State Commissioner of Labor James B. Doherty also spoke yesterday morn? ing. He. called attention to various violations of the child labor laws of Virginia. Even In Richmond, he point? ed out, children, sometimes mere In? fants, are permitted upon local stages to entertain amusement-seekers and thereby Jeopardize life and limb for pay. Commissioner Doherty deplored the fact that the laws are not more rigidly enforced, but promised his aid and sup? port In bringing about an Intelligent construction upon the statutes, with a view of protecting all children In Vlr glnla.
