Pawnbrokers Who Desire to Sell
Pistols- Arc Granted Writ of Error. MURDER CASE APPEALED Potts Claims Lower Court Err? ed in Requiring Him to ?-' Prove Self-Defcnse. Final test of tho ordinance enacted by the City Council of Richmond, hav- < tng for Its purpose the prevention of dealing In pistols ?nd other dangerous weapons by pawnbrokers, will be had In tho Supremo Court of Appeals of Virginia. That tribunal yesterduy granted n writ of error from a de? cision of tho Hustings Court of this city, and will hear argument, prob? ably at the coming .lanuury term. The petitioners are Joseph and Sol. j Eisner, trading as Elsnor Bros., who died their original application for mandamus against O. A. Hawkins, commissioner of revenue, und James 17. Pace. Treasurer of the city of Rich? mond, in this proceeding, presented first In the Hustings Court, thoy sot forth that they aro licensed pawn? brokers, having compiled with the tax bill In the rnattor of paying license, given bond, complied with po? lice regulations and giving evidence of good character. llrfuavd l.lcenne. Being thus duly licensed, they claim, they nppllcd ' for a license to deal In pistols In accordance with section ItO of the State tax bill, tendering $20.75, thn amount of license fee prescribed, to Commissioner Hawkins and Treas? urer Pace, j These officers refused to accept the money and the license was not Issued. Tho mandamus, sought and refused in the Hustings) Court, was intended to compel the lssuanco of the license. The reason for the refusal was the pnsnage of an ordinance by the City Council prohibiting licensed pawn? brokers from dealing In pistols.

Where, tho Legislature, the supreme authority. It Is contended, gives a city a right to regulato a business. It does not confer tho right to prohibit it, but presumes the contrary. A decision is quoted, rendered In tho Suprome Court by tho late Judge Roily, to tho effect that municipal corporations are not created to executo criminal laws. It Is pointed out that pawnbrokers in Norfolk or Petersburg may continue to soil -pistols to Itlohmond people. Wyndham R. Moredlth Is counsel for the petitioners. An Interesting point as to the ox tent In which It 1b necessary to prove self-defense In a trial for murder, Is raised In the petition of Shirley Potts, who was granted a writ of error from a decision of tho Circuit Court of Nor? folk county. Potts was sentenced to eighteen years In the penitentiary, for the killing of another negro named Jim Jackson, 'ii.oy wore engaged In the fascinating occupation of playing crap, when a fight ensued. Both men used knives, and when the-fight wbh over Jackson was dead or dying. The trial court held that If the Jury believed PottB did tho killing with tho weapon in his possession, and self defense was made the plea by tho prisoner, U must be satisfied that tho plea was a true one, before finding a verdict favorable to the dofendant. Tho petition, on tho other hand, argues that this is an Incorrect proposition, and that it wns necessary for the prisoner to prove only a reasonable doubt. Whllo insanity must be proven, It Is stated, this Is not the case with self-defense. CITY COMMITTEE FILES DEMURRER Proceedings to Settle South Rich? mond Legislative Situation Are Begun. Two petitions for injunctions, hav? ing- a6 their object an order restrain? ing the City Democratic Commltteo from Including Washington Ward lp the primary of September 7. were pre? sented yesterday morning at S:30 o'clock In the Law and Equity. Court, before Judge John H. Ingram. The proceedings were in tho form and to the effect predicted in The Times Dispatch yesterday. James E. Cannon appeared and en? tered a demurrer to the petitions, on the part of the City Committee. The demurrer was full and complete, cover? ing the side of those who believe that Washington Ward should vote with the city of Rlchmonu Instead of in the old senatorial and legislative dis? tricts, and was in effect an answer to the bills. Willis C. Pulliam, of South Richmond, and P. V. Cogbill, of Ches? terfield, appeared as counsel for the petitioners. After argument had proceeded for about'an hour and a half, the regular docket came up for disposal, and J-Oge Ingram continued further con? sideration of the petitions until to? morrow morning at 9:30, when it will be concluded. It is hoped to secure an opinion within a few days. No appeal will be taken, ag the. various parties Interested will abide by the construction of the laws ren? dered by Judge Ingram. Refuses to Issue Mandamus in Case of Monticello Hall, Now Being Razed. Judge E. H. Wells, sitting in the Hustings Court yesterday morning for Judge Witt, refused to grant a man? damus to compel Justice Crutchfield to permit an appeal In the noted case- of the Mc-ntrcello Hall, recently con damned by Building Inspector Beck to be razed. The building has been In process of demolition for some weeks, and the work Is now nearly completed, so that It tho mandamus hod been granted in this particular case It would have given no benefit to the contesting adjoining property hold? ers. So' far as the Building Inspector is concerned, however, tho decision of Judge Wells establishes a precedent which will guide the future actions of Mr. Beck, and which, as it now stands, affords him the unhampered privilege of carrying on the work?so much concerned with the public safely ?of his office. ' Judge Wells's decision was to tho effect that the Building Inspector's or? der, which was upheld by Justice Crutchfield, came under the broad powers delegated to tho police by the Legislature, and showed that If In a case- of emergency an appeal were granted It would have the effect of nullifying the law. An appeal lies from the decision ren? dered- in the Hustings Court, but It was not announced yesterday by the attorneys for the plaintiffs whether thoy would go to a higher court with their contest. BASEBAM, TEAM XJNDEK ARREST FOR PLAYING ON SUNDAY Jacksonville, Fin., June 37.?Nino members of the Jacksonville Baseball Club, who par? ticipated i In Sunday's came, were arrested here yesterday: It Is said tho arrests were caused by the club owners themsolvcs, who wish to have the Sunday bnsehair l?w put to n test.

Commission Renders Decision " Covering Inquiry for Past Two Years. byrd denounces \ frauos Rate Hearing Will Be Had This Morning, Town of Ashland Opposing Increase. At the close of the hearing yesterday before tho State Corporation Commls. slon In the matter of examination of the affairs of tho Grand Fraternity, Chalrmun Prentls announced from the bench that an order ?n'ould be Issuod Instructing the Bureau of Insurance to make an Investigation in accordanoo with the statute, to cover the an? nual reports of tho years 1909 and 1910.' While the attorneys for the or? der had Insisted on restricting the examination to the terms of tho law, they apparently did not desire the in? quiry to go back to the year 1909, for It Was stated that radical changes had been made In tho policy of doing business slnco the 1909 report was filed. On the other hand, Commis? sioner Josoph Button stated that the decision was what he wanted and all that he wanted. Iviter the attorneys for the cocnern also said the decision was satisfactory fo them. It Is beleved to be not Im? probable there may be another clash when the examination is attempted. ? Throughout the day, Attorneys Samuel A. Anderson and Hill Monta? gue, representing the Grand Fraternity, protested against being submitted to the sort of examination which the In? surance Bureau demanded, but Insisted that it should be confined to seeing that the laws referring to purely fra? ternal- associations were being com? piled with. Fake Societies Denounced. The feature of the day was the ter? rific denunciation by Richard Evelyn Byrd,counsel for tho Insurance Bureau, of frattdulent insurance associations. ITe did not Include the Grand Frater? nity in his excoriation, for the reason, or, he said, no examination had been had which could disclose Its real na? ture. "I regret to say," said Mr. Byrd, "that many, perhaps a majority of fraternal beneficiary societies consti? tute the most cruel and heartless form of robbery known to modern civil? ization. This Is true because they prey upon the Ignorant and the de? fenseless part of our population. I know there are some well conducted and honestly managed societies, and 1) rejoice that most, If not all, of i.,e vultures / which fed and fattened upon the poor and helpless, have been driven from Virginia." Ilefuaed License. While the merits of the case were touched upon to a large extent In the argument, they were not properly be? fore the commission at this time. The I point at Issue was the sort of examl i nation of the affairs of the Grand I Fraternity which should be permitted ! At a previous hearing on an appeal ! from a decision by the Insurance com? missioner declining to rellcense the concern, the Corporation Commission ordered the investigation to be made. The examiners were refused permis The highest point of woman's hap? piness is reached only through moth? erhood, in the clasping of her child within her arms.

RATE HEARING TO-DAY Town of AshluDd and Clttzcnii Will Re slot Increase In Fares. With the town of Ashland formally entered as a party defendant, the pe? tition of the Richmond and Chesa? peake Bay Railway to be permitted to Increase Its passenger rates, will be heard before the State Corporation Commission, beginning at 11 o'clock this morning.' The town has notified the commission that It desires to con? test the petition, and that It has em? ployed L.. T. W. Marye as ...s coun? sel. Although the new rates, if granted, will not apply to commutation or school tickets, the residents along the line of the road, which operates an electric railway between Richmond and Ash? land, are to a large extent opposing the proposition. The company desires to charge a straight fare of 2V4 cents per mile, Instead of -2 cents, as now charged. Attorney-General Williams will also appear as counsel for the Corporation Commission. Tobucco Plunted Late. From advices received from various parts of the'tobacco belt, J. J. Owen, of the Department of Agriculture, is satisfied that his estimate of 25 per cent, loss in the tobucco crop this yean was, if anything, a Utile conservative. A good many farmers place the de? crease In the amount of tobacco acre? age at a good deal more. A letter re? ceived ' yesterday from Plttsylvanla county states on the day before a large planter .had just completed setting out his plants.
